I only have 2 friends (they are on the board) who know that I ship and whom I ship. Ironically they ship as well. I do write fan fic, ship and regualar. They only ones who have read it are people on the board when I post it and my 2 friends. My mom knows I'm really into CSI but she doesn't know about the shipping or the fan fic writing. She knows I write because it's part of my major, but she's never patient enough to read anything.
