I meant to post this last night, but I was so tired. Man did I sleep hard last night. Not to mention I played some Vanilla L4D with my beloved zombbs, so that greatly improved my day. <3 Anyway, on with the meme!!

30 Days Fanfiction Meme

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?

Honestly? Uh, I can't say that I do. I can't ever say I've written a fic and any character has just "taken over." So yeaaaaaaah...

1 – How did you first get into writing fanfic, and what was the first fandom you wrote for? What do you think it was about that fandom that pulled you in?

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

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

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?

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?

6 – When you write, do you prefer writing male or female characters?

7 – Have you ever had a fic change your opinion of a character?

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.

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

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?

11 – Genre – do you prefer certain genres of fic when you're writing? What kind do you tend to write most?

12 – Have you ever attempted an "adaptation" fic of a favorite book or movie but set in a different fandom?

13 – Do you prefer canon or fanon when you write? Has writing fanfic for a fandom changed the way you see some or even all of the original source material?

14 – Ratings – how high are you comfortable with going? Have you ever written higher? If you're comfortable with NC-17, have you ever been shocked by finding that the story you're writing is G-rated instead?

15 – Warnings – What do you feel it most important to warn for, and what's the strangest thing you've warned for in a fic?

16 – Summaries – Do you like them or hate them? How do you come up with them, if you use them?

17 – Titles – Are they the bane of your existence, or the easiest part of the fic? Also, if you do chaptered fic, do you give each chapter a title, or not?

18 – Where do you get the most inspiration for your fics (aka "bunnies") from?

19 – When you have bunnies, do you sit down and start writing right away, or do you write down the idea for further use?

20 – Do you ever get bunnied from other people's stories or art in the same fandom?

21 – Sequels – Have you ever written a sequel to a fic you wrote, and if so, why, and if not, how do you feel about sequels?

22 – Have you ever participated in a fest or a Big Bang? If so, write about your favorite experience in relation to one. If not, are there any you've thought about doing? And if not, why not?

23 – When you post, where do you post to? Just your journal? Just an archive? Your own personal site?

24 – Betaing – How many betas do you like to use to make sure there aren't any major flaws in your fic? Do you have a Beta horror story or dream story?

25 – Music – Do you listen to music while you write? Do you make playlists to get into a certain "mood" to write your fic? Do you need noise in general? Or do you need it completely quiet?

26 – What is the oddest (or funniest) thing you've had to research for a fic?

27 – Where is your favorite place to write, and do you write by hand or on the computer?

28 – Have you ever collaborated with anyone else, whether writing together, or having an artist work on a piece about your fic?

29 – What is your current project or projects?

30 – Do you have a favorite fic you've written? What makes it your favorite? And don't forget to give us a link!

Not even Edgeworth?

Also, is it hard to link back to the old ones you've already posted in?

Not even Edgeworth. XD I loved to write Edgeworth, don't get me wrong, but it wasn't like he forced his way in there or anything. XD

It's kind of a pain in the ass. ^_^;; Basically I go back to the old entry, copy the link and then use this coding around the appropriately numbered question:

[a href= "previous journal link"] whichever question you're answering text here [/a]

Of course interchanging the "[" or "]" with "<" or ">". It's how you do a "fake cut" so it's kind of handy to know the code. :3

Yeah, any kind of html style coding is a pain in the ass (yet I liked using html better than a web-design program)

Thanks for the code, it will help when I do this meme thing. I already posted my first entry.

Oh God, HTML. But yeah, I kind of enjoyed it for a little while, way back when before the interwebs got so gosh darned complicated!! *waves kids off of her lawn with a cane*

No problem. Here it is more simplified, just in case it was confusing or anything. XD

[a href= "link"] text [/a]

Once again interchanging "[" or "]" with "<" or ">".

But yay for more people doing this meme! I love how it's been spreading around lately. :D

Yeah, even back in the early 2000s when I was learning, it wasn't nearly as complicated as it is now. I remember friends having to look up specific fan sites to get anime music videos because there was no such thing as youtube back then.

Now I feel old.

Oh man, I feel old too. XD

I remember looking up stuff like Sailor Moon subbed episodes of the stuff that wasn't available in English yet, and each episode taking like hours to download because it was on dial-up. And then getting pissed at housemates for picking up the phone because I had to start downloading it all over again. Ah, the good 'ol days. XD

I had a friend whose older sister was really into Sailormoon. She had all the laser discs and many of the Japanese dolls. I was in heaven at their house. She introduced me to the idea of anime music videos. I don't even remember where she found them, but it had all sorts of cool music and scenes from Sailormoon.

The big thing for me was looking up fan art and printing it out. I think there used to be a site that was an anime fansite database. I frequented it alot.
