2001 - mostly ancient history. The only thing from then I'll currently make public is the DMVs, my magnum opus in the Myst fandom, but I was, at the time, writing quite more. This was the year I graduated high school, and in the summer before I went to college, a summer in which large bits of my personality changed rather drastically, I discovered, amongst many things, online fan communities. Light from above, choirs of angels, etcetera.
I started a relatively light and simple plot-focused story, "The Book of Narayan," as a long WIP, posted scene by scene in forums, to break my disorientation-induced writer's block. I had been writing, fanfiction and original, since I was a small child; I had never been blocked before. The support I got on those forums not only dynamited the block away, it drew out, I think, a whole new level of quality. I wrote most of the DMVs that year, though it took me far longer to fully revise and publish them, and, while they are flawed, I still consider them my first vaguely mature work.
