Y - What are your secondhand fandoms (i.e., fandoms you aren’t in personally but are tangentially familiar with because your friends/people on your dash are in them)?

T - Do you have any hard and fast head canons that you will die defending?

[ profile] lost_spook is running the Obscure & British comment fest IV! It's a comment fest for any small(ish) British fandom and open to all fanworks.

Come play!

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

Starting Over.

8-yr-old John is 10-yr-old Sherlock's half-brother. The story has John going to live with Sherlock and Mycroft.

So why do I love it so much?

29 – What is your current project or projects?

What, all of them? Uh... Check under the cut as this will be long.

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

Nope. I hoped to once, but it never came off.
arnie1967: (Cat - TalesBook)
Yep, I know; I took a break from this. I only have a few days to go so I might as well continue. :oD

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

Favourite place: At my desk...which is where my pc is. I type my stories straight onto my pc. I type faster than I write, so I feel my stories flow better, and I don't have to try to decipher my writing later.
arnie1967: (Cat - TalesBook)
26 – What is the oddest (or funniest) thing you've had to research for a fic?

Cheese rolling, and ye age olde annual tradition of chucking oneself down a steep hill in pursuit of said cheese. Apparently, the inhabitants of Cooper's Hill in Gloucestershire have been doing this for a few hundred years now.

[ profile] leesa_perrie posted a Sentinel challenge about (IIRC) Jim and Blair going on a weird holiday and since there isn't much (IMO) that beats chasing cheese down a steep hill, that's the one I went with.
arnie1967: (Cat - TalesBook)
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?

I need complete quiet. Uh, this probably sounds incredibly silly, but I pretend to be the character, so I try to think and feel what they'd think and feel about whatever's going on around them.

Yeah. I'll just show myself out now.
arnie1967: (Cat - TalesBook)
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?

Um...hmm... This is embarrassing. I don't have any beta readers. I used to, but real life took over and they got busy. Now I proofread as much as I can, spellcheck, and hope I won't spot anything too awful after I've posted.
arnie1967: (Cat - TalesBook)
23 – When you post, where do you post to? Just your journal? Just an archive? Your own personal site?

My LJ and Ao3. I also have my own personal site with most of my fanfic on, but I really need to get back to update that. I have no idea how long it's been since I posted on there.
arnie1967: (Cat - TalesBook)
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?

SGA genficathon. It was tons of fun seeing all the stories posted, and some of the challenges ('all dialogue', 'no dialogue') were surprisingly difficult. It also led to me writing one of my favourite SGA stories, Light Switch Duty.
arnie1967: (Cat - TalesBook)
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?

Yep. My Sentinel story Lord of the Drunks had its own sequel, A Bad Hobbit is Hard to Break. My Sherlock/Harry Potter story Relativity has a sequel WIP, as does my Tall, Dark, and Belstaff story about the married ones next door to Sherlock and John. If I have more to add to a story, then I'll write a sequel. If not, the story's a standalone.
arnie1967: (Cat - TalesBook)
20 – Do you ever get bunnied from other people's stories or art in the same fandom?

Sometimes, but really not often. I saw a prompt someone had included in their summary, and the prompt gave me a 'what if' bunny (Deal or No Deal), but it's rare that I get bunnied like that.
arnie1967: (Cat - TalesBook)
19 – When you have bunnies, do you sit down and start writing right away, or do you write down the idea for further use?

It depends entirely on how big and persistent the bunny is. *imagines a Harvey-sized bunny knocking on the door*

Sometimes (Alas, Poor Fargo), I've had the story straight away, and other times (Just Another Normal Day) I've left it simmering for awhile. Once the story hits a certain temperature though, it's got to be written. If I don't use the idea straight away, I'll often write it down to make sure I don't lose track of it.
arnie1967: (Cat - TalesBook)
18 – Where do you get the most inspiration for your fics (aka "bunnies") from?

The short answer to that is 'everywhere'. A line of prose from something, taking a bath, a dream, the way someone stands or walks... Any of them can set off a 'what if?' train of thought in my mind that leads to a plot bunny.
