How about some Mirrorverse Prince Spock? Sounds good to me. I imagine him sort of like an impressive warrior prince.

So many people are shut up tight inside themselves like boxes, yet they would open up, unfolding quite wonderfully, if only you were interested in them.

Yay, for hugs!

I hate writing endings. Especially emotionally charged ones that make me feel like I’m twisting my own heart in my ruthless little hands.

SOMEONE HOLD ME.

For the writing meme: 11, 12, 27! And I haven't been on your blog in a while--I LOVE your theme!

Thank you! And thanks for posting the coffitivity link! The “morning murmur” sounds really helped me relax into my writing session today. =)


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

I tend to write a fair amount angst. There’s lots of romance involved, and I always try to throw in tender moments and bits of humor, but lately my writing has been very angsty! The first time someone told me my fic made them cry I was blown away, and so pleased that something I created inspired that kind of emotion in someone.

That being said, I really want to try writing something cracky, ridiculous, and fun. Or maybe some fluff! I need lots of cracky/fluffy prompts to inspire me because I’d love to challenge myself by doing something different.

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

I haven’t written anything, but I still plan to finish the drawings and the short comic for my Spirk version of Moulin Rouge! Who knows, maybe I’ll eventually write it, because I’m so in love with the idea of Spock as the exotic courtesan/actor and Kirk as the writer/poet who falls in love with him! I would be spending more time on the drawings, but this mirrorverse stuff has really got its claws in me!

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

I like to write at my desk. Occasionally I’ll go sit on my porch with my tablet and wireless keyboard, but there are too many bugs here so mostly I stay inside. I do enjoy writing by hand, but when the ideas come they come fast and my writing becomes illegible! I type very quickly, so I’m able to get the ideas down more easily that way.

I would like to start writing and sketching more in notebooks, though, because I do enjoy it!

3, 6, 7, 17, 26

3. For each of the fandoms, what were your favorite characters to write?

The only fandom I write for is Star Trek, and Spock is definitely my favorite! I love getting myself into a Vulcan mindset and doing away with all those pesky emotions. I must admit, I often share his bafflement over human behaviors, particularly those relating to social interaction. =)

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

I have no preference. Honestly, the sex of the character is irrelevant to me. I write characters based on what I know of their personalities. We all have our strengths and weaknesses, and though some characters may possess traits that are generally thought of as either masculine or feminine, I don’t tend to think of them as such. It’s kind of like the way I never really think of Spock as a half-Vulcan (unless it’s something he’s struggling with in the story), I just think of him as Spock.

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

Not really. My opinions about everything Star Trek related are pretty much firmly set. Though I am interested in the way others interpret the characters, I feel I know them quite well in my own head.

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?

Ah, titles… Often the title comes easily, but on my Spock Prime fic I just couldn’t think of one. I ended up writing the names of Beatles songs on pieces of paper and drawing one out of a pop tart box. Once I settle on a title, though, I’m fine and don’t give it any more thought. I do not name my chapters, because it would be just as much work for me as naming the entire work, and once is enough!

26. What is the oddest (or funnest) thing you’ve had to research for a fic?

For my feral!Spock fic (which I will eventually start posting) I found myself researching flint knapping, and found some interesting videos of people making stone knives. I also researched the steps for skinning and preparing an animal to be cooked over a fire. I learned a bit about animal anatomy and really came to appreciate the fact that I can go to the store and buy neatly packaged meats. Research is awesome.
