I discovered fanfic through a now-published author (Sarah Rees Brennan) -- she was posting her HP fanfic on her blog, and I happened across it (through another friend, though I can no longer remember who that was). I got completely caught up in her writing, and I must admit, that's why I picked up her first published book -- but it was that book which made me pick up the next two. :)

There are definitely fanfic writers which have 'proven' themselves to me through the fandom, and that's why I would seek out their original fic -- but it has little to do with the original HP characters, in all honesty. In the case of JKR, however (who has said she's fine with fanfic), I'm not concerned about anyone 'stealing' her readership ;)

And yes, I've written a few stories myself, mostly to play with scenarios and ideas and to see how things played out...fun stuff!
