Just a bit of craziness added to your everyday. Expect lots of Team Guy, and bunches more the further back you go. No promises on quality there o.o.

Interests
I'm depressed and depressing lately, so I stole this from :iconty-chou: to fill up my jounal instead. It was fun to think about. She has a reader section too, if you're not a writer but are interested.

What caused you to start writing fanfiction?

I've always really enjoyed writing. Ever since I was a little girl I enjoyed making up stories, and did so frequently. As I got older, using the ideas I had for characters in my favorite shows seemed a good way to get a lot of practice. It was.

How long have you been writing fanfiction?

Oh, gees. I'll be 27 next week (I know, I know) and I started when I was 11 so...16 years. Wow.

Which fandoms have you written for in the past 5 years?

In the past 5? Good grief. A lot of Naruto. TMNT. Merlin. Thunderbirds, definitely Thunderbirds. A bit of WoW but not much. Maybe a couple of others, but not seriously like those.


What's the first fandom you ever wrote for?

Digimon. Remember that, :iconhaloson: ? Gosh, how young we were! It still holds a special place in my heart, even if all I wrote was depressing crap :XD:. Taiora forever!

What are your favorite genres to write?

Drama, I guess, with a bit of romance. Actually, nearly everything I write has some romance in it, so that's probably the first. But family and drama are just as fun, if not more so, for me to write. I just usually have less ideas for them.

How much time do you spend writing fanfics?

I used to spend hours and hours doing it, but haven't touched them in...what, 2 years? I keep saying I'm going to work on some (my husband loves Naruto fan fics, you see) but after my novel was done I haven't had much motivation to write at all. I don't think I've put one creative word on paper in over a year. That's really sad.

Do you prefer to write one shots or chapter fics?

I like writing chapter fics better, because I can get more complicated with my story, but I'm far more likely to finish a one-shot.

What story aspects do you find to be difficult to write?

Action scenes. I've improved over the years, but I have the handicap that I don't 'see' pictures in my head. Even in, say, a manga I find following the action between the panels almost impossible. Writing action scenes is a very slow process that usually involves me or someone else acting out a lot of the motions for me.


What is the easiest thing to write?

Dailogue. It always has been. I love the way words sound and feel in your mouth, so I pay a lot of attention to the way people speak. That makes dailogue my favorite and easiest thing to write.

Is there a fandom you haven't written for but want to?

Hm. I'd love to do more Merlin stuff, I don't have enough of that. Oh, One Piece! Hubby and I loooooooooooove One Piece, and I'd really like to do some fics for it but I have absolutely no ideas. Which makes me sad.

What do you consider your greatest strength as a writer?

I like to think I grasp the characters fairly well. I make it my bussiness to analysis every bit of dailogue or relavent information to death (largely because I prefer writing less loved characters) and I think I have a pretty good handle on the subetlties of most characters.

Greatest weakness?

I tend to fall into cliches sometimes. I try and play with them, but I'm not nearly as clever as I think.

As a fanfic writer, how important is canon or keeping in character to you?

Canon is realtive. Sure, there are a few hard and fast rules I can't ignore (Scott Tracy went to Oxford and Harvard and was a fighter pilot for example) but there is also a lot of play room (Maybe he stopped being a pilot because an accident cost him his wingman and he couldn't stand the guilt, ect). But if I want to ignore everything that happened in Naruto since his defeat of Pain, I'm going to, because bad writing is still bad writing. As for being IC...well, that's all realtive, isn't it? And it depends on where/when you're writing the character. I believe if you're putting them in a situation where the character has changed then their personality should change too-- but stay within the rules you created for that 'new' character.


AUs: love them or hate them? Why?

I love AUs. Partly because writers sometimes make decisions I disagree with (see above) and partly because sometimes the unexplored path is more interesting. Actually, I often find that it is. We already know the story we're being told, there's no need to rehash it. Much better to explore something new and see what happens.

Tell us where we can find your fanfics.

Either here on DA in the folders for the fandoms or, if you're brave and want all of them: www.fanfiction.net/~princessty…


For my own curiosity-


Have you read any of my fanfics?

No, sorry. I don't read many fanfics on DA. Too much work for what I'm after on DA most of the time.

If yes, how did you first find them?


Lastly, any fanfic questions you'd like to see me answer?

Hm...can't think of any.
