6. Idea that you always wanted to write but could never make work?
I kept meaning to write a Cherik story where Charles gets dark, really dark, after the whole beach scene. It was going to be longish, and I got 3000-4000 words into it when my computer ate it. It was going to be from Erik’s perspective and opened with Charles using a new Cerebro to slowly break Emma Frost’s abilities. Erik of course realizes there’s only one mutant powerful enough to do it, though it makes him sick to realize that it’s Charles. They were going to have a trully gutwrenchingly emotional fight and Erik was going to have search deep inside himself for a glimmer of good in order to bring Charles back.
Also, I still can’t seem to finish that fic where Charles and Erik fight off zombies. I have the ending, it’s literally 500-1000 words I need to write to get there and I just can’t seem to do it. Dammit Gina!
9. Favorite character to write?
This is a tough one. I loved writing fics about John Doggett, back in the day, as he got so little love. His perspective was also easier for me than Mulder or Scully’s for some reason. Now I love writing fics about Shepard, though that’s a bit of a copout since your Shepard can be anyone. I realized I really loved writing from Liara’s perspective in After the Dark. Both Booker and Elizabeth are really enjoyable to write.
18. If you could go back and revise one of your older stories, which would it be?
Oh man. Ah. Possibly Minor Variation, a Doggett/Scully fic from… 2001? 2002? It was one of my best X-Files fics because it was written when I was a little older, at the end of high school. When I first discovered XF as my first fandom, my writing was all shippy, gooey nonsense about Mulder/Scully, written quite mawkishly. The grammar was good and the descriptions all right, but the characters were pretty OOC. It didn’t help that I’d never even kissed a boy, let alone been a thirtysomething FBI agent, so it took a year or two of reading better fic to kind of help correct myself. I still enjoy this story but I think I could do it quite a bit better now. I picked this one because it was the least embarrassing of my XF fic, I think, haha.
Pain’s Narrow Aisle, my only published foray into Harry Potter fic, was pretty good but I think could tighten it up. Angsty Lupin. Mmmm, angsty Lupin.
(psssst someone please ask additional questions I love these!)
the ships that i end up investing myself the most in are the ones where at first im like, “meh i guess i can see that” and then somewhere along the line my brain just fucking snaps and i cant control myself its like a demons possessed me and im going 900mph to hell
Me thirty minutes into X-Men: First Class: “meh I guess I can see Charles and Erik”
Me forty-five minutes into X-Men: First Class: “FUCK MY LIFE”
Also that whole goddamn Shakarian business!
