Sure, why not?

So Nar did this meme and it sounded interesting, so sure, why not?


1. Do you read fic? Do you write fic?

Why would you be doing this meme if you don't at least read it?  Anyway, I'm pretty sure it's obvious I do both.

2. Favorite genre of fic?

Friendship fics.  Do friendship fics count as a genre?  No?  Then hurt/comfort.  I am such a sucker for hurt/comfort.

3. Favorite fandom?

I have written for far too many of them to actually pick.

4. Favorite pairing?

Really?  You're asking this of the gen writer?  *raises a Brigadierly eyebrow*

5. Favorite fic author?

Hm, I dunno?  I never really think about favorites.

6. Favorite fic (or one of them)?

Again with the favorites.  I'll just go with my old Sailor Moon favorite, since I actually have that saved.  Past Loves by Fushigi Kismet.  The op and end things are annoying, but the story itself is actually one of the reasons I started writing fanfic.  I used to adore her.  I'm pretty sure that was also one of the first fics I ever read too.

7. One-shots or longfic?

I like both.  Really, it depends on the mood.  Sometimes I feel like reading something long and in depth, sometimes not.  It's easier to look through and find good one-shots than it is to find good longfic though.

8. Do you read WIPs?

Depends.  I do when they're recced to me or I know the author.

9. What is the longest fic you’ve read?

I... have no idea.  Probably this fic?  Which, btw, is awesome and amazing and should be read by everyone, since it not only sets up an interesting alien race, but fully explores the mental trauma of what happens when the bad guys win.

10. Favorite trope/element/scenario in fic?

Identity pooooooooooooooorn.  XD  Though I'm a sucker for any kind of hurt/comfort too.

11. Least favorite trope/element/scenario?

Alpha/Omega-verse fic. Really, fandom, why?

12. What turns you away the most from a fic?

Character death, rape/non-con, omega-verse.


13. Has a fic ever made you cry?

Yup.  I like a good fic that makes me cry.  XD

14. What tropes/elements/scenarios get you the worst?

Hm...  Baby problems/miscarriages?

15. Do you mind when characters cry?

Only if it's plausible and in character.

16. How do you feel about character death in fic?

No.  Just no.  I don't kill off other people's characters, and I don't like reading about other people killing off other people's characters.  OC's are fine though, or canon character deaths.  Unless it's a Sailor Moon/Jack Harkness kind of death, when you know they don't actually stay dead.  I just avoid them generally, and I blame Ronin Warriors fandom for doing the whole "omg, I'M SO ANGSTY AND IT'S MY FAULT THEY'RE DEAD" thing for the sake of having the characters grieve.  I think that was my first experience with deathfic, and it was so bad.  I didn't like it at all.  And yes, I did read Ronin Warriors fanfic.  Shut it.  Rowen was awesome.  XD

There was one death fic I actually liked, but it was a sandman crossover with Avengers.  It seemed interesting so I read it.  It was really good.

17. Any characters who you can’t stand to see in pain?

Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuum...  Yeah.  Nope.  I think I'm far too sadistic for that to be a problem.

18. Favorite angst fic?

Um...  I dunno?  How about Indeliable by Penumbren?  I just really love that fic.


19. Do you read porn or does it make you uncomfortable?

It doesn't make me uncomfortable.  I just get bored with it easily.

20. Do you like PWPs?

Only when they're so bad that I can make fun of them.

21. How and when did you get introduced to smut fic? Any horror stories?

I... actually don't remember my first smut fic?  I think I might have been introduced to yaoi and yuri manga first, actually.  I kind of just avoided fic with higher ratings for the longest time since I had no real interest in it.  If I can't have my illusive friendship fics, I could at least find non-sexy pairing fics.  For horror stories, can I just say that using floral screen tones for the inside of a girl's vagina is hilarious?  Also, there was one time I clicked on the name of someone who commented on one of my fics and tried to read their PWP.  It was so, so, so awful.  I actually couldn't get through it all (and it was like, two lj entries long too).  Yeah.  That one was bad.

22. Biggest turn-ons in fic?

Hands.  I apparently have a hand kink.  And a drawing kink.  Really, I like details, which is probably why the drawing kink appeals to me.  Not the details of how good it feels or the slap of skin sort of thing, but like, noticing the contours of someone's wrist or intimate things that aren't necessarily sexual.

23. Biggest turn-offs in fic?

Non-con, omega-verse, repetitive sex in general.

24. Do you have any dirty kinks that you’re ashamed of?

Um...  I don't think so?  At least, none that I am ashamed of.  I find tentacle porn hilarious?

25. Any kinks that you’d love to try in real life?

I would be all over hand kissing.  I don't think I've ever had a guy actually kiss my hand.

26. Any kinks that you don’t want to try in real life (but are still hot in a fanfic)?

Um...  I don't think so.  I don't find a lot 'hot' in fanfic.

27. Rough sex or gentle sex?

Depends on how it's written and the tone and characterization.

28. How do you feel about masturbation in fic?


29. How do you feel about non-con and dub-con?

I like it when everyone is informed and consensual.  So no.  We won't go into my past with writing Dub-con though.  That just... happened.

30. Favorite porn fic?

Um....  I'll go with neveralarch's "Operator, Operator", since that was actually hilarious.


31. Do you read AUs?

Not really.

32. Favorite AU tropes?

Identity Porn.  Canon divergence fic.  Teacher AUs (mostly because I mock them when they're wrong, and commiserate with them when they're right).

33. Least favorite AU tropes?

Omega-verse.  >.>  Also, high school AU's and the like.  Most AU's in general, to be honest.

34. Do you like UAs (universe-alterations, when the main universe and characters are the same but one plot point/decision/outcome is altered)?

I tend to hear the term Canon-Divergence thrown around more, to be honest.  And yup, this is pretty much one of the few AU's I actually like and will read without hesitation.  They're fun.  I've even written a few.

35. Do you like high school and college AUs?

Only if they're the teachers rather than the students.  XD  But generally, no.

36. Do you like crossovers? If so, favorite crossover?

I like them when they're done well.  Sadly, it can be hard to find good ones.  I can't actually think of a favorite one off the top of my head though.

37. How do you feel about parent!fics/lovechildren? How about mpreg?

Kid fic... can be interesting.  I like it sometimes, when it's done well.  Also, I am all over parent-ish relationships.  Like, Bat family.  I love Bat family fics.  There was one moment in the old cartoon where Bruce says that the Commisioner was the same age his father would have been if he'd lived, and I just melted.  And I adore fics with Alfred and/or Jarvis being fatherly towards their respective super-heroes.

Mpreg is just no.  Sorry, but no.

38. How do you feel about genderbending? De-aging? Animalizing?

Genderbending: Eh, not really thrilling.
De-aging: Yup.  It's hard to find good ones though.  I do love them.
Animalizing: Eh...  No real opinion of them?  Unless it's characters being turned into kittens, and then yes.  I do love them.  XD

39. Favorite AU fic?

Hm...  There was that office/comic book canon divergence Avengers fic a while back that I adored?  I'm not sure if I can find it again though.  It had identity porn.


40. Do you like fluff?

Depends on the mood.  In writing, I tend to make my characters earn their fluff, but I do like cuddles.

41. Favorite fluffy tropes?

Cuddle fics.  I like cuddling.

42. Least favorite fluffy tropes?

Um...  I can't think of any annoying fluff tropes off the top of my head.

43. Do you like fluff on its own or in conjunction with other elements (angst, sex, etc.)

Mostly in conjunction with angst.  Hurt/Comfort all the way.

44. How fluffy is too fluffy?

OOC.  Or if it makes my teeth rot.

45. Favorite fluff fic?

Hm...  I can't really think of one off the top of my head?  -_-;;;

Anyway, there you have it.
