Is everyone aware that Nickelodeon is now showing Friends, like, all the time? Or has this been going on for ages and I'm the only one completely unaware of this amazingness? I haven't watched it in years, probably, and all of a sudden I'm All About Friends and probably more appreciative of it than I was at the time, because it still holds up and is super super funny. Like, did you see the one where Ross and Rachel got married in Vegas? Still hilarious!

And now I seriously am going to attempt to do more of this 30 Days of Fanfic meme! Several days included below because as stated before, if I did one question a day, this wouldn't be finished until late 2016.

30 days of fanfic

Day 1 – How did you first get into writing fanfic, and what was the first fandom you wrote for? What do you think it was about that fandom that pulled you in?

2 – Name the fandoms you've written in, and how much you've written in that fandom, and if you still write in it.

I'm not prolific at all, but I do tend to hop around fandoms, so this list got pretty long. I decided to format it this way: Fandom - # of stories completed - Any kind of wip looked at in the last year or so.

Remember Wenn - 2 stories (I think?)
Buffy - 1 story
Roswell - 6 stories? I think? Maybe 7? A couple of them I never pulled over to my website when I built it because I wasn't thrilled with them.
X-Men - 2 stories
Popslash - 1 story
Ocean's 11 - 1 story - 1 stubborn WIP I am determined to finish because I'm almost positive I know how it's supposed to end
Bourne movies - 1 story
Keen Eddie - 1 story
Psych - 1 story, 1 crossover
Friday Night Lights - 1 story
Ugly Betty - 1 story
The Office - 1 story, 1 crossover
30 Rock - 1 story
How I Met Your Mother - 1 story
Waitress - 1 story
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington - 1 story
The Apartment - 1 story
Bringing Up Baby - 1 story
Parks and Recreation - 1 story
Community - 1 story
Saved by the Bell - 1 story
Gilmore Girls - 1 story
Alias - 1 story
American Dreams - 1 story

3 – For each of the fandoms from day two, what were your favorite characters to write?

I feel like this question is geared more towards people who wrote multiple stories in a fandom, which is not really me since Roswell, and it's been so long since Roswell that I don't think I could answer! If I had to pick from all of the stories listed above, I'd say the characters that were most fun to write were probably Gus from Psych, Tyra from Friday Night Lights, Rusty Ryan from Ocean's 11, and Robin from How I Met Your Mother.

4 – Do you have a "muse" character, that speaks to you more than others, or that tries to push their way in, even when the story isn't about them? Who are they, and why did that character became your muse?

I don't think so. The whole hopping from fandom-to-fandom thing makes it harder for me to really answer this, because characters can't really push themselves into other universes. As a general rule I don't really think of muses in relation to my writing.

5 –If you have ever had a character try to push their way into a story, whether your "muse" or not, what did you do about it?

Usually it happens because there's something missing in the story, or something I need to address about the characters or the underlying concept of the story. Even though both the Ocean's 11 story I have done and the one I've had half-written for ages are Rusty/Linus stories, Danny always make some kind of an appearance in the story because he's such a big presence that I feel he has to be addressed in some way. But it's not really about how I feel about Danny Ocean as a character, but his relationships with the two characters I'm building the story around. Generally I write the character in and then see if he/she belongs there once the story is done.

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

I don't really have a conscious preference, and I think my stories are pretty evenly split.

7 – Have you ever had a story change your opinion of a character?

8 – Do you write OCs? And if so, what do you do to make certain they're not Mary Sues, and if not, explain your thoughts on OCs.

9 – Pairings – For each of the fandoms from day two, what are your three favorite pairings to write?

10 – Pairings – Have you ever gone outside your comfort zone and written a pairing you liked, but found you couldn't write, or a pairing you didn't like, and found you could?

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

12 – Have you ever attempted an "adaptation" story of a favorite book or movie but set in a different fandom?

13 – Do you prefer canon or fanon when you write? Has writing fanfic for a fandom changed the way you see some or even all of the original source material?

14 – Ratings – how high are you comfortable with going? Have you ever written higher? If you're comfortable with NC-17, have you ever been shocked by finding that the story you're writing is G-rated instead?

15 – Warnings – What do you feel it most important to warn for, and what's the strangest thing you've warned for in a story?

16 – Summaries – Do you like them or hate them? How do you come up with them, if you use them?

17 – Titles – Are they the bane of your existence, or the easiest part of the story? Also, if you do chaptered story, do you give each chapter a title, or not?

18 – Where do you get the most inspiration for your stories (aka "bunnies") from?

19 – When you have bunnies ideas, do you sit down and start writing right away, or do you write down the idea for further use?

20 – Do you ever get bunnied inspired from other people's stories or art in the same fandom?

21 – Sequels – Have you ever written a sequel to a story you wrote, and if so, why, and if not, how do you feel about sequels?

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?

23 – When you post, where do you post to? Just your journal? Just an archive? Your own personal site?

24 – Betaing – How many betas do you like to use to make sure there aren't any major flaws in your story? Do you have a Beta horror story or dream story?

25 – Music – Do you listen to music while you write? Do you make playlists to get into a certain "mood" to write your story? Do you need noise in general? Or do you need it completely quiet?

26 – What is the oddest (or funnest) thing you've had to research for a story?

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

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

29 – What is your current project or projects?

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