Ooh, a fanfic writer's meme!
o1. What fandoms have you written for? Italicize your currently active ones!
Short answer here...Final Fantasy VII, Death Note, Yami No Matsuei...I think that's it. Aside from early, pre-game and anime stuff that I cringe to think of now.
o2. What pairings and genres do you find yourself writing over and over?
Zangeal, angst. I may have to rename them Zangstgeal. I am capable of pure silliness, though. Ask me what I once did to Silence of the Lambs.
o3. What's one fic you've written that you think is kinda under appreciated?
I think they're rather overappreciated, actually.
o4. What characters do you write so in-character it's kinda scary? Why do you do it so damned well!?
Hmm, I don't think I write anyone particularly in-character. I've been complimented a lot on my Sephiroth, and I do find him probably the easiest character to write. He's socially-inept and isolated; I know that well.
o5. What genres and characters are outside of your comfort zone? Why?
Pure, smushy romance isn't uncomfortable for me, but I don't think I could write without making everyone barf at the cheesiness. Het is icky to me in writing, so that's out. And a lot of people have asked me for another humor story a la Silence of the Chocobos, but I think I used up all my humor in that one. Now what's left goes in the Decorum series.
Cloud has become hard to write as part of a pairing, since I have the chibi version bouncing around asking me to hug him, but I'm trying not to let this impact Decorum.
o6. What are the best three fanfics, in your opinion, that you've ever written? Link us, please!
Hands-down, number one is The Madness of Angels. I don't even know how I pulled it off. And if the love for that one gets any more extreme, I may end up responsible for a cult.
Let's see...number two. I'm pretty happy so far with Pendulum, but it's still in progress and slow-going.
Finally...I don't know. I'm actually pretty proud of The Silence of the Chocobos. I wanted to do something I hadn't seen before - combine serious drama with total crack, and I think it worked.
o7. Pick out three lines from the fics in question 6 that are gonna knock our socks off.
Agh. I think I'll pass, if you don't mind.
o8. Have you ever won an award for a fanfic?
I actually don't remember...I don't think so...
o9. How long have you been writing for? Can you find a short passage from an early work to show us your improvement?
I started too long ago to remember. I don't remember NOT writing. And dear Gaia, no. Let's just agree that I've gotten better. :)
1o. What inspires you to write a fanfic?
A happy mood, often induced by reading other people's fanfic that I like. Playing/watching the canon and wondering what if this, what if that. All of you guys. And naturally, the Choir. :)
Anyone else wanna give this a whirl?
