Fic year in review 2010

Not going to be around enough on Friday, so I decided to distract myself from unpleasant things by posting my fic year in review today.

Questions )

And only one fest fic this year.  For daily deviant's Kinky Kristmas.  Feel free to guess if you don't know because of prior knowledge.  Drabble to the person who guesses right first.

End of the 30-day meme

27 – Where is your favorite place to write, and do you write by hand or on the computer?
Computer all the way.  I do like to write things out sometimes, but I hate having to type it in after, so It's just easier to go straight onto the computer.

28 – Have you ever collaborated with anyone else, whether writing together, or having an artist work on a piece about your fic?
Tons of times, with a few different people, including [info]kabal42, [info]snapesgirl, and [info]ceria.  It's always a fun process, and every one has been different.

29 – What is your current project or projects?
NaNoWriMo, starting tomorrow.  I'll be doing a Merlin version of the Sword in the Stone, with Merlin looking for an Arthur who has been missing for a year.  I'm looking forward to it.

30 – Do you have a favorite fic you've written? What makes it your favorite? And don't forget to give us a link!
Hm...I have a lot of favorites.  Oh...I have to say it.  Our Truth.  Though I'm sure I could make a huge long list if I wanted...

30-day fanfic writing meme

10 – Pairings – Have you ever gone outside your comfort zone and written a pairing you liked, but found you couldn't write, or a pairing you didn't like, and found you could?
I used to write Harry/Draco almost exclusively, but slowly I've pushed out a little, though there are some I still refuse to do.  I did do a Ron/Draco once, though I still dislike the pairing immensely because to me, Ron and Neville just aren't believable as gay.
I have tried to do Snupin a few times, but I always have trouble making it come out the way I imagine--they're just too pigheaded.
On the other hand, I was shocked at how easy it was to write Remus/Regulus.  I'd thought they'd be as difficult as Snupin or Sirius/Remus, but not so.  It's one of my more-common pairings to write, actually.

11 – Genre – do you prefer certain genres of fic when you're writing? What kind do you tend to write most?
Romance, smut, and angst, pretty much.  I'm not so hot at comedy, and mystery is too complicated for me.

Fandom 30 Day Meme part 9

9 – Pairings – For each of the fandoms from day two, what are your three favorite pairings to write?

Elfquest - The only canon pairing I actually wrote was Skywise/Foxfur.  All the rest were OCs paired with one of the known characters.

Voyager - Janeway/Chakotay, Tom/B'Elanna, haven't written any others

HP - Harry/Draco, Severus/Draco, Remus/Regulus.  And I've written tons more, too.

Youkko Nitta - Carlos/Magira, I don't think I've written any others.

Merlin - Again, only written one- Arthur/Merlin.  Though there are others I don't mind.  I just haven't written them.

Fandom 30 Day Meme part 5-8

Very very behind because my trip had me offline for two days, and I'm still catching up on some things, so catch-up time on this now:

5 –If you have ever had a character try to push their way into a fic, whether your "muse" or not, what did you do about it?
Kingsley Shaklebolt. He was supposed to have a small part in my first NaNoWriMo, but as soon as he showed up, he started bossing me around. I ended up having to add stuff in the editing process to integrate him better into the story.

6 – When you write, do you prefer writing male or female characters?
I used to be afraid of writing guys. Then I got into slash, and never looked back. I barely write female characters any more. It's a bad habit I really need to get out of.

7 – Have you ever had a fic change your opinion of a character?
I was going to say I wasn't sure, then I remembered a little fic I read ages ago: Time out of Place by Cosmic. She's the one who made me fall for Draco, and I've never looked back.

8 – Do you write OCs? And if so, what do you do to make certain they're not Mary Sues, and if not, explain your thoughts on OCs.
No. For a very good reason. When I wrote Elfquest fic, I wrote almost exclusively OC's paired with the main elves. I know one *can* write OCs in a reasonable and interesting way, but there are so many characters in Harry Potter, there's really no need. You can find almost any sort of character to fill any role you need.
Not that I hate OCs--I have quite a number of HP OCs that I've RP'd. I just think there's generally little need to in fic.

Fandom 30 Day Meme part 4

4 – Do you have a "muse" character, that speaks to you more than others, or that tries to push their way in, even when the fic isn't about them? Who are they, and why did that character became your muse?

Heh. See my answer to the HP section yesterday and raise it by 100%.

Draco even likes to push his way into things that have nothing to do with HP. If there's a character he can identify with, suddenly he's in that story/movie/etc. He literally doesn't shut up.

I have done Het Draco (Yes, really), Slash Draco, baby (okay, child) Draco, older Draco... I've slashed him with Harry, Snape, his father, his son, and even a few Weasleys, just to name a few. But the one thing I can't handle with him is death. It's literally too much for me to handle. I get so emotional I have to take a step back and find something else to focus on for a while.

But I admit it, I love my blond muse, even if he is a brat. ;)

The only other character outside of HP that I can think of at the moment that even comes close is Morgana le Fae.



And, just to let everyone know, I'm off for the next few days, and will likely have no internet access. I'll be back sometime Wednesday. Be good to each other while I'm gone. *snugs*

Fandom 30 Day Meme part 3

3 – For each of the fandoms from day two, what were your favorite characters to write?

Elfquest: Well, I did mostly OC's, but the ones I tended to pull from the main group were Winnowill, Cutter, and Scouter, if I recall... (did I mention I had a thing for evil characters? ;) )

Voyager: Janeway, and to a lesser extent, Chakotay and B'Elanna. I think Tom was all Foodie, really...

LotR: The fic I found myself writing focused on Frodo. Never finished it, though.

Harry Potter: Say it with me folks... Draco. Yeah...anyone who got that wrong needs to start at the beginning of my journal and work their way forwards. ;) Also Harry comes to me a lot, and Severus, Remus, Blaise, and Regulus. And sometimes George. Oh, and Lucius, and sometimes Kingsley. And I'm probably forgetting a half-dozen more, too.

Buffy: Haven't written a whole lot, but...Willow. :)

Firefly: Again, I think I've written maybe three drabbles? Plus, the group's so small, it's hard to have favorites. But I suppose if I chose, it would be Inara, Kaylee, Mal or Zoe.

Youkko Nitta: Magira. Again, I haven't quite written enough to be sure, but I do love he and Carlos... :DD

Merlin: Despite RPing Merlin to [info]kabal42's Arthur, I have to say that my first answer here is Morgana. Then Arthur, I think, and then Merlin. I suppose I'll find out more in November, huh? ;D

Fandom 30 Day Meme part 2

2 – Name the fandoms you've written in, and how much you've written in that fandom, and if you still write in it.

Hm...

My first fanfic I can remember writing (I might have written Star Trek or Star Wars stuff before it, but I don't remember anything specific) was in Elfquest. Chock full of OCs that broke pretty much every rule there is for Mary Sues. Thank god none of it ever made it online.

Then in college, I did a piece on the Dollenganger Saga by VC Andrews, but just one poem, and not so much fanfic.

As I said yesterday, my first published piece was with [info]foodie in Voyager fandom.

We moved on to LotR, but I don't think I ever finished the fanfic I was writing, though she posted several about the Hobbits that I helped with.

And then I moved into HP, and never looked back. I couldn't even begin to tell you how many stories I've written in HP any longer. I've been writing HP stories for about 7 years now, if I'm counting right. HP is also my first slash fandom.

Since writing in HP, I've done a few drabbles in older fandoms--Buffy and Firefly, a bit more in Trek and Elfquest.

And then Someone introduced me to Youkko Nitta... I haven't written enough there, but I do love playing with those two characters...I need to write more. :D

And of course, Merlin, my newest love, which will be the subject of my NaNoWriMo this year. :D I've done maybe a dozen or so drabbles, and a couple of fics in the fandom, but I promise there will be more.

And I think that's the lot...though I'd probably be terrified by what I could unearth on my hard drive...

Movie Meme

15 - A  character who you can relate to the most

Recipe for one Elf:
A teaspoon of Eleanore Dashwood's family sensibilities,
A pinch of Malfoy pride and stubbornness.
A cup of Tracy Turnblad for body-image and love of music,
A teaspoon of Sarah from Labyrinth for that touch of day-dreams,
And a sprinkle of Kat Stratton for brains.
Add a dash of Abby from The Truth About Cats and Dogs for self-image.
Mix it all together, then sprinkle liberally with Luna Lovegood for strangeness and just a dash of Morgana le Fae for wickedness.
Bake for four or so decades, and voila: Elfflame.

Something lightly distracting

For me, I don't see Snape as flexible as others in fandom.  My "little black dress" of fandom is Remus.

Snape: Lucius, Albus Severus, Blaise, Charlie, Draco, Lily, Narcissa, Regulus, Remus, Sirius = 10

Remus: James, Kingsley, Sirius, Lucius, Bill, Fred, George, Harry, Hermione, Lily, Narcissa, Regulus, Tonks, Severus = 14

And just for comparison, Draco: Blaise, Cedric, Lucius, Scorpius, Charlie, Hermione, Harry, Ron, Severus, Sirius = 10

Hm.  And Blaise: Draco, Harry, Hermione, Pansy, Seamus, Theo, Cedric, Kingsley, Lucius, Miles, Rodolphus = 11

Hm...I expected Blaise to beat Remus, but I guess I was right.  He really is the one I see with the most other characters.
