1. has a comment someone left on a fic of yours ever made you laugh out loud?

one time someone called both bakoda and zukka “two halves of a whole idiot” in a comment on ‘a study in matchmaking’ and honestly yeah valid

10. what word do you keep using like it’s going out of style?

too fucking many if im being honest. i find myself using the phrase “it felt like” a lot, or some variant of that, which i loathe lol. there are definitely so many more but that’s one i struggle with a lot

3. and because i know we’re all egocentric, have you ever made yourself laugh out loud or cry with a fic you wrote?

i defintely laughed when i was writing taboo words just at the sheer ridiculousness of the things they were coming up with during the game lol

7. what is you favourite sentence/paragraph? read it to us!

this is from my zukka big bang (which is posting in a few weeks!), i actually wrote this part yesterday and im really happy with it! zuko is talking about izumi here:

“She was so beautiful. Still is. Of course, I’d held a baby before. But this was different, because she was my baby. And it hit me that she was completely brand new, and innocent, and─” Zuko gulped and hung his head for a moment, jaw clenched. He took an unsteady breath before continuing. “I realized that I would do anything for her. I would die for her. It scared me, how much I loved someone I’d only just met, because I’d never experienced that with anyone else. But I think I felt that way even before she was born. I just didn’t know it until her little head was cupped in my hand and she was looking up at me.”

Hi honey thanks for the ask!

16. Any guilty pleasure trope(s)?

I love love love a holiday fic. Anything that reads like a Hallmark movie idea that got cut in the boardroom but definitely shouldn’t have makes my heart soar. 

22. Do you listen to anything while you write?

Ok so this is very specific but I listen to the How to Train Your Dragon movie soundtracks. All three movies. All the songs. In order. One playlist. On loop. It’s the perfect combo of action-movie scores (to get me typing like my life depends on it), romantic lilting tones about friendship with dragons, and the occasional bagpipe to keep me alert. 

“This is Hans Zimmer” playlist on spotify is very good for writing too. 

Ask me about my fics here!

6. What element of writing do you find comes easily?

Coming up with initial story ideas is pretty easy for me. It’s the middle part, the filling in the details, that’s a little tricky for me.

13. First fandom you ever wrote for?

Batman. 

29. Have you ever gone outside of your comfort zone for a fic? How did it turn out?

There have been times doing prompt fills that I’ve gone a bit outside the box. The biggest one that comes to mind is a Riddlebat vampire AU drabble I wrote maybe two years ago? I think it turned out okay, but fantasy just isn’t my thing to write.

3. What do you think makes your writing stand out from other works?

I am a plotting plotter who plots. I know where to put down the bombs and I know when to start setting them off.

10. What’s your favorite genre to write for?

Honestly? Mysteries. That’s my favorite genre to write in, and I think it’s an area I’m pretty good at.

17. A trope you’ll never, ever write for.

A/B/O fic. That shit’s nasty.

From one to five stars, how would you rate your writing? 

 On average, I’d say about a four. I’m good, but I know my weaknesses and there are a lot of people who do certain things better than I do.

Hey Bucky! sorry this is late. 

4. Are there any writers that inspire you? of course! specially in the fandom. Yourself Bucky and @iocococo for starters! your writing techniques are always a source of inspiration and growth. @queen-boo and @littleredchucks are wonderful inspiration for plot and storytelling. An I particular love @agarlandoffreshlycuttears prose. Everyone is an inspiration!

6.What element of writing do you find comes easily? I’d have to say dialogue. Its always the easiest thing to get right and to write! I have a mind for voices and accents so writing it is easy in my opinion. 

12. Tell us about a WIP you’re excited about. WELL, I’ve been saving and editing an RP me and @thatpointywitch have been doing since before Christmas. They’ve already given me their blessing so as soon as its finished it’ll be posted ;) 

pfffft that was a lot of callouts! I love you all!

13. First fandom you ever wrote for?

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Those fics are still out there on Fanfic.net. No, I will absolutely not be linking to them.

(First fandom I ever read fanfic for was Digimon, for what it’s worth.)

15. What’s the weirdest fandom you’ve ever written for?

See above answer 😂

Also Warrior Cats. I regret nothing.

32. Summarize a random fic of yours in 10 words or less.

I’ve written 450 fics soooo this’ll be fun for everyone involved. I used a random number generator to keep myself honest:

Enjolras and Grantaire go to extremes to have Christmas together.

19. Do you prefer canon-compliant, AUs, or something in-between?

Something in-between. I think the best fics are the ones that ride the gray area between what is and what could be. But of course, as we know, I also love AUs, and canon compliant is so beautifully painful so. Really all of the above lol

29. Have you ever gone outside of your comfort zone for a fic? How did it turn out?

Yeah probably the most outside my comfort zone is the A/B/O fic I wrote, If the Choice Were Mine to Make, because, well, it’s A/B/O. And smut. And soulmates. Three things I am not known for writing.

As for how it turned out, I think ok? Not my best by a long shot but I don’t hate it.

The fic that I am most proud of is the Percy Jackson AU. It’s probably the most plot-driven fic I’ve ever written, and I really enjoyed writing it and am quite happy with how it came out.

18. Wildest fic you’ve ever written?

Oh, man, there’ve been some weird ones over the years. Maybe the Jungle Book AU? Or the Lion King AU? Or the WALL-E AU?

Probably the WALL-E AU because, well, robots.

27. What’s the nicest comment you’ve ever received?

I am very very lucky to have received a ton of amazing comments over the years, so much so that I doubt I could pinpoint the nicest one.

That being said, the best comment I’ve ever received, and I’m devastated because it came via tumblr ask and I’ve seen lost the screenshot I took of it, was from someone who thanked me for one of my fics helping them at a particularly dark point on their mental health journey. It was immensely gratifying to know my work had that effect on someone.

This is probably the most important aspect of fanfiction to me: through fanfiction I met the very best friends I have, and many of the best things in my life happened because I met these people I cherish . I’ve been a fanfic writer for almost 20 years now and I’m sure little 14-year-old me would be very proud of me for still being the fangirl I used to be back then, and probably even worse.

Fanfiction has been LIFE to me though all these years, it helped me get through a lot of shit and I’ll never be grateful enough to every single person who ever crossed my virtual path over my stories or their stories. THANK YOU

Hello! Thanks for the asks!!

5. What’s the fic you’re most proud of? This is tough! Right off the bat, I’m tempted to say The Passenger, but since it’s still not complete, I’ll go for Pure Evil. Writing that one with @kateyboosh was one of the most fun things I’ve ever done, and I honestly love what we came up with in the end. It’s just ridiculous and horrible and fun.

6. What element of writing do you find comes easily? I always find dialogue easy to write. Generally, I daydream conversations for the characters to have and then try to figure out ways to get them into that conversation. Of course, I usually end up with an entirely different conversation than the one I’d originally planned since getting them into the situation usually requires a lot of things that I hadn’t thought about before I imagined the original dialogue, but nevertheless! I’d just be writing dialogue if I could get away with it!

7. What element of writing do you struggle with most? Ooo. A couple of things for this one. First, FINDING TIME! Time is my enemy! I only have a limited amount of free time (especially lately) and sometimes that free time just doesn’t want to be productively spent. I try to be patient with myself when I’m in one of these moods, but, honestly, every minute I’m not writing feels like a minute wasted, which just keeps the time I’m trying to spend relaxing from actually feeling relaxing.

When I do conquer the time dragon and actually find myself in a doc, the nuts and bolts actual writing thing I struggle with most is describing scenery. I just don’t have the patience to tell people what’s in a room. It’s almost always the thing I go back in to do last, and only once I realize my characters are chilling in a void.

I think this might be a bit Chekhov’s Gun of me. If I’m describing it, I feel like it should be important at least eventually, but there is a level of scene-setting that needs to be done, and I sometimes struggle to find what I feel is a good balance with it. Generally, I try to tie my settings to specific characters, and, if, say, there’s never going to be a fire because of a kerosene lamp that’s positioned a little close to some curtains, I try to at least let the scenery illuminate the character the room belongs to in a way that you wouldn’t really get from dialogue, or what’s directly on the page.

That was way more rambly than this question demanded, but anyway… thanks so much again!

Hey, Bucky! Thank you so much for these asks!

2. Why do you write fanfiction?

For fun! Mostly, I find it entertaining to write with characters that don’t belong to me just for enjoyment’s sake. I also find it to be good practice for writing other stuff!

22. Do you listen to anything while you write?

Almost always. I’ll spam a specific song to hold onto a mood, make playlists for stories, listen to soundtracks, whatever! I do occasionally write in silence, but that’s rare.

25. Have you ever daydreamed about side adventures/spin-offs from your fic? Tell us about them!

Generally, if I do this, I end up ficcing them at some point. Pretty much all of Six Fics started as just little one shot things that I sketched out as background for Boosh de Noel and then decided to finish up and post.

When I write long WIP’s, there are always sidestory or backstory things that I fever dream. I have huge amounts of stuff that I sketched for Vince in Borrowed Light that I’ve never gotten around to finishing, and let’s not get started on the nonsense that’s happened in the name of The Passenger… as @kateyboosh and @killahdillah can attest, that situation is well out of hand 😂

7.  What element of writing do you struggle with most?

Sometimes I have a very clear picture of feeling or emotion in my mind and no matter how hard I try to find the right words, it never really feels good enough.  Also, I have ADD, so there are days when I really can’t get anything done, even though I really want to. It’s a pain.

12.  Tell us about a WIP you’re excited about.

CaraDin WIP: Give Me Shelter. It’s the sequel to Picking Up Crumbs; Din and Cara have settled down in Nevarro with the green kid and the blue kid, and one day Greef shows up at their doorstep asking them to look after a little girl who was found on board of his cargo ships until he figures out what to do with her. Meanwhile Din and Cara realise the little girl’s life hasn’t been exactly rainbows and butterflies.

Boska WIP: @maryscarlett2u literally put this idea in my head 5 MINUTES AGO and now I cann’t stop thinking about this damn Boba/Koska stupidly soft first kiss. I only need to write this, now.

16.  Any guilty pleasure trope(s)?

MUTUAL PINING. Give me all the stupid, endless, clueless mutual pining in the world, I want to see them mope like brooking idiots for weeks, months, thinking the other one will never ever see anything special in them until one day they accidentally admit they’re in love.

26.  Is there anything you’ve wanted to write, but you’ve been too scared to try?

Longfics. I completely lack the ability to be constant in my writing, so I prefer to stick to oneshots because they’re easier to handle (except when they decide to turn themselves into multichapters… those treacherous bitches).

Thanks for asking. ❤

Henlo, Darling! Thank you for the asks!

33. Is there anything you wish your audience knew about your writing or writing process? Hmm… I guess what I’d like people to know is that I usually mess with my writing a whole lot. It’s typical for me to revise something about a thousand times, and usually not to make big changes, just slight alterations. I also regularly scrap entire segments in long WIP’s. Like, just blam, delete and don’t look back. A lot of times, when I’m writing, I’m just trying to get something down before I can go back and make it decent.

34. Copy and paste an excerpt you’re particularly fond of.

There are a couple bits that I’d like to include from our Rad Collabs, but I honestly don’t remember who wrote what anymore. Just know that I am incredibly proud of writing with you, always, and very fond of everything we do together.

Instead, have a little bit of The Passenger. This section has a special place in my heart, just because it puts a bit of emphasis on the connection these two are slowly building toward at this point in the story. Their relationship is very much physical, but this is probably the most obvious point where Jules is beginning to realize that he doesn’t want it to be just that.

“I have got bills to pay, alright?” the kid says, his smile a bit thicker, more genuine. “There’s not…” He shrugs. “You know, a huge demand for what I do. I’ve always got to have something else.”

Jules thinks about how little they paid the kid for his part in their last job. Ten thousand pounds wouldn’t have lasted that long. Good money for a single day’s work, but… of course he would need to do other things. Still, it doesn’t seem to fit. “What was it? Your job?”

“Selling CD subscriptions,” the kid says with a sigh that Jules is hard-pressed not to categorize as downtrodden.

He’s so forlorn, so sad, and over something so inane, Jules can’t really help it.

He laughs. “CD subscriptions? I’m sorry… really? Like, you get a CD every month or whatever?”

The kid’s eyes spark with a mixture of offense and amusement. “One every fortnight, actually, but, yeah.” Jules continues to snicker and the kid gives him a look. “It’s a good way to build up a musical library,” he squawks.

“That’s honestly your day job?” Jules asks, baffled. “I thought, if anything, it’d be… I dunno. Not that. I didn’t know anyone was still doing something like that. Besides, music is all moving to MP3, isn’t it?”

“MP3’s are rubbish,” the kid says hotly. “What’s wrong with CD’s?”

Suddenly, Jules can imagine it. The kid, showing up at someone’s door, militantly opining about musical libraries and the rubbish nature of MP3’s until they’d sign themselves up. “This part of the old sales pitch?” he asks.

The kid rolls his eyes over a grin. “Whatever. Look at you, with your LP’s, like someone’s grandad. Anyway, doesn’t matter, does it?” he asks, his grin bleeding away. “Not my job anymore.” He puts down the spoon, leans back in his chair and pushes the bowl away from himself. “Fuck.”

35. Ramble about any fic-related thing you want!

A good ramble… I guess the thing I want to ramble about most is that I’ve actually watched two episodes of Top Gear at this point and I fucking hate Jeremy Clarkson. Sorry, but that dude is a dick. I’m 100% sure of it. Snap judgment snapped! I actually couldn’t make myself watch a third episode because I disliked him so much. (Wait, this is a rant)…

I guess let me just ramble about how nice fic in general is. It’s a fun escape and a way to do things you’d never get to do otherwise. It’s nice to explore headcanons, or to play with different ideas. I think that part of me will always be a fanfic writer no matter what, and I’ll definitely always be hanging out in some fandom or another, just enjoying how passionate people can get about the things they love!

Thanks for the ask! #8 answered here.

9. Which character(s) do you find most difficult to write?

I have lot of trouble with Fjord. It might be because he’s not my favorite of the Nein (I love him, really, just not as much as some of the others) so I haven’t taken the time to figure him out, maybe? I don’t know.

21. Favorite pairing to write for? (platonic or romantic!)

Platonic: The Empire siblings! I love them so much. I think I have a pretty good feel for their dynamic so writing them is fairly easy but it’s also just alot of fun because they love each other in such an antagonistic way.

Romantic: Beaujester (the pining! It kills me) but Beauyasha is a very close second (the awkwardness… My heart can’t take it).

35. Ramble about any fic-related thing you want!

I haven’t been able to write as much lately as I used to. I have some irl stuff that leaves me with little time to be creative and when I do have time I’m usually too burnt out to actually do it. I can’t wait until I can get back to writing regularly again. I miss interacting with this fandom so much.

Thanks so much for the ask!

8. Which character(s) do you find easiest to write?

I’m pretty comfortable with my characterization of Beau and, to a slightly lesser extent, Caleb and Jester.

24. One-shots or multi-chaptered works?

I really love doing multi chapter work but I burn out so quick with those so most of my published work is one shots.

27. What’s the nicest comment you’ve ever received?

I don’t think I could pick out one of the many many amazing comments I’ve gotten over the years but my favorite comments are the ones that are like “This inspired my to watch Critical Role” or “I started shipping it after reading this” or “This gave me an idea for a fanfic I want to write!”, I love it.

Thank you for the ask, my dearest!

1.From one to five stars, how would you rate your writing? (No downplaying yourself!)

 3.8 It depends on the fic, really. There are some that I’m really proud of and then there are a few that I only uploaded because I had already put so much work into the fic, even if I didn’t like it

13. First fandom you ever wrote for?

I was going to say the witcher, but then I remembered. It was actually BBC Sherlock. Thing is, I never was in that fandom, but a friend of mine was. It was her birthday and I am bad at coming up with gifts, so I wrote her a johnlock fic. In German. It was probably really bad but she seemed happy, so, no regrets

27. What’s the nicest comment you’ve ever received?

There’s no way I can pick only one. Also, this question gave me an excuse to go through all the wonderful comments I got so thanks ;) Here are some of my favourites in no particular order:

- Someone told me my writing feels like a hug

- @dhwty-writes told me the way I wrote Jaskier thirsting over Geralt made it really obvious that I am ace and that’s still cracking me up

- One person asked about an alternative ending to a fic and I got the chance to tell them about the ending I originally wanted to write

- The aspec person who told me my ace geraskier fic made them feel seen

- Every single comment @abluescarfonwaston left on my wolf!geralt fic

- The person who wrote a song!!! for one of my fics!!!! Like, an actual song!! and it’s really good and I am still mindblown that they would do that

29. Have you ever gone outside of your comfort zone for a fic? How did it turn out?

Writing one shots was definitely out of my comfort zone. It worked out pretty well tho. I still prefer multi chapters, but it’s nice to be able to write something and not having to spend weeks on it or feel bad when I give up on it half way through

Oh yeah, and writing comedy was terrifying, but people liked it and I am really proud of myself for writing something that wasn’t just angst
