30 Days Fanfiction Meme

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

I've actually collaborated with a few people on fic, and they were all pretty fun experiences. ^_^ I've done it a couple of ways, such as pretty much RPing with someone and then we smoothed out the RP into fic form. And there was also a time where I wrote out the fic for the most part and then the other person looked at it and changed bits or added things here and there. We then came to an agreement on it the fic as a whole once it bounced back and forth between us a couple of times. All the experiences were pretty positive as a whole, and I enjoyed doing it. ^__^ And I wouldn't mind doing it again!!

The biggest compliment for a fic though, is getting fanart. I haven't had an artist work specifically for art accompanying fic that I've written, but I've gotten fanart for a couple of fics, and man does that make you feel good. ^___^

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!

Collaborating can be so amazing! I too have only had pretty good experiences. The RPs I've read of yours are some of my faves.

And I ARE JEALOUS that you've inspired someone to make fanart!!!! That must be so cool!!!!

It really can be!! *nods* So much fun. ^_^ And awww, I'm glad that someone likes them!! XD

It really is cool when someone makes fanart for your fics. My icon? Totally relevant to how I feel when someone does. XD

I will do accompanying fanart with you ;A;
We can be all super slow together and stuff!

Yeah? Yeah?

Well shit, what do you want me to write? ;D

gah well the first thing that popped into my mind was that Nick bondage borderline watersports idea I mentioned a while back but really I'm good with whatever. Any pressing plot bunnies hit you lately?

Yeah, I'm not sure that I can do that prompt justice, not to mention that I've never written Keith before in my life. XD I do have one idea that Z and I were discussing, I just have to actually write it, ahahaha.

Oh! Oh, I didn't mean that one haha I meant the one that was something along the lines of Ellis somehow binds/restrains Nick until he's desperate to relieve himself and has to rely on Ellis to hold it for him. With lots of teasing coming from Ellis to goad him into doing it like "come on, wouldn't want to make a mess of that nice suit of yours now would ya?"

But yeah, whatever you decide you want to do once you get some writing done on it let me know or send me a line/scene from it that you'd like drawn out and I'll start poking along with it. XD

Hmmm... I'll have to give that some serious thought now... ;D

OMG, really? <3 Man, now I have to write something. ;D

Yes, doitdoitdoit!
Haha It will be fun and mutually beneficial for all ;)
