A baker's dozen writing questions for my flist... 
24th-Mar-2009 09:33 pm
In a desire to know my flist a little better...

All of the people on my flist write fanfic for B7 and various other fandoms. Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to answer the following questions regarding writing fanfic.

1 Why do you write fanfic?
2 When did you write your first fanfic and which fandom was it for?
3 Which fandoms do you, or have you, written for?
4 Do you read much fanfic or do you mainly write?
5 What comes easiest for you when writing?
(dialogue, descriptions, plot, characterizations, humour, angst...)
6 Which genres do you mainly write? (action, angst, dark, drama, horror, humour...)
7 Which genres will you not write?
8 Are reader comments/responses important?
9 Do you use a beta reader?
10 Which is your favourite character to write fanfic for and why?
11 Which are your favourite ships (including friendships) that you write the most?
12 Do you have characters that are so strongly established that they're in your heads?
13 Which characters are you most comfortable doing a POV for? Which is the hardest?

debris4spike pointed out that I haven't answered these questions. I guess it's only fair.



1 Avon.
2 The first one would be two years ago for B7.
3 So far B7 is the only one that has inspired me to write.
4 Mainly write but I do read.
5 The easiest would be dialogue and characterizations. Plot comes next. The hardest would be descriptions. I'm just not a visual person.
6 Angst, action, drama, mystery and humour.
7 I don't do slash or porn. I don't tend to graphic violence even though I do torture scenes, but only within the context of the story and I concentrate more on the psychological and emotional impact.
8 I enjoy them and some comments or lack of them help me grow as a writer.
9 I did try using a beta at first but the speed at which I write makes it impossible.
10 Avon. He's infinitely fascinating.
11 Avon and Cally captured me from the beginning. And definitely Avon and Vila for friendship.
12 Most of the main characters are in my head, and its getting quite crowded.
13 Avon and then Vila.

1 Why do you write fanfic?
To give the B7 characters (mostly) a future and some hope.
2 When did you write your first fanfic and which fandom was it for?
In 2001, Vila Restal's E-Mails, for B7.
3 Which fandoms do you, or have you, written for?
B7, Farscape, Doctor Who, Red Dwarf, Narnia, Harry Potter, Shaun of the Dead, Star Trek TNG, Swallows and Amazons
4 Do you read much fanfic or do you mainly write?
Bit of both
5 What comes easiest for you when writing?
Dialogue and humour
6 Which genres do you mainly write? (action, angst, dark, drama, horror, humour...)
Drama and humour
7 Which genres will you not write?
Anything too dark or graphic (sex or violence)
8 Are reader comments/responses important?
They give me a kick
9 Do you use a beta reader?
For longer stories
10 Which is your favourite character to write fanfic for and why?
Vila and Avon! I love their dialogue and writing it for them.
11 Which are your favourite ships (including friendships) that you write the most?
Avon & Vila friendship
12 Do you have characters that are so strongly established that they're in your heads?
Yep
13 Which characters are you most comfortable doing a POV for? Which is the hardest?
Vila. I think Blake would be the hardest POV, or Travis--both obsessed and driven people.

I do love your Vila Restal's E-Mails. They're very funny.

Thanks! I had a lot of fun writing those till I got to S4, when it was an effort to find the lighter side.
