Teh Big Slash meme
Read and/or write?
2007 - I actually had to look it up, I couldn't remember ^^; I can't believe it's been 3 years
How did you stumble into slash?
Deviantart!! I was just looking for pics of Tyson from Beyblade when I found it and then I couldn't stop :D
Your first fandom and pairing:
Beyblade - Kai/Tyson
The first person you told about your new hobby:
I told mum I was writing fanfics but not what they were about. Only the people that live in this box know what I write
The fandoms you read:
Bleach, FMA, Ouran, Highschool of the dead, Deathnote - there are others but these are the big ones
The fandoms you write:
FMA mostly although I have written Beyblade and Bleach too.
Your favourite pairings:
I'll just list one from each because otherwise I'll pretty much be here all day. Bya/Ichi, Roy/Ed, L/Light, Kai/Tyson, Kyoya/Tamaki
I'm gonna do a nochick_fics here and just say Porn XD
Least favourite pairings:
Ed/Win!!! Ichi/Hime, Toshirou/anybody
Least favourite genres:
Mpreg, deathfic (although I have written this ^^;), rapefic
What makes a story good?
In a long story, plot is good, I'm all for PWP but if you're managing to stretch that out over 50000 words it needs a plot. Other than that, whatever works
What makes a story bad?
Too much description, I don't need to know that his cum was whiter than the first snowfall of the year or anything like that. Overdoing it, trying to cater to everyone and forgetting that you're writting the story primarily for you and you should at least like what you have written!
The best author:
I can't answer this. There are so many authors I admire, some of whom I managed to work up the courage to friend and talk to and I can't pick just one of them. I'll go with a relative newcomer to LJ and that's dracoqueen22.
She writes amazing Bleach fics, I used to read her work on AFF, she has this superb set of ficlets under the title Seritei Monogatari, they range from pairings to non-pairings, het to yuri to yaoi and I love them all. So many pairings and characters to get to know and love <3
The best story you've ever read:
I had to think about this but I keep coming back to Zakai's The Sound of Silence
It is absolutely amazing, there is no way to describe my love for this fic. It had me on the edge of my seat almost the whole way through, it took me to Hell and back and always left me wanting more. Amazing is the only word that can give it any measure of justice
The worst story you've ever read:
Really not answering this, there are a few I can think of but I'm not gonna mention them here.
The best story you have written:
Ok, I'm really not good at praising myself and I actually feel uncomfortable answering this (yay for low self-esteem) but I have to say that I kind of like my Tortured Soul fic (Beyblade) and my Roy's Revenge (FMA) - I'm proud of them.
The worst story you have written:
My first ever PWP, it's called Powercut and I wrote it for my Beyblade fandom. There's a few FMA ficlets I'm not too happy with either :-/
Do you get feedback?
Usually, which is very nice and helpful :D
Do you have a favorite kink?
People think I'm weird enough as it is ^^; Let's just say one of my favourite sayings goes someting like 'sticks and stones may break my bones, but whips and chains...'I'm pretty sure you can finish that off ;D
Does something squick you?
Tentical sex still squicks me a little but there's pretty much nothing that can squick me now.
Is slash simply sex?
No way!! There is oh so much more to it than that.
How much time do you spend reading/writing?
Not as much as I'd like to.
Do you have RL friends who slash?
Don't make me laugh. My RL friends already think I'm mad just for liking anime
Have you made online friends through slash?
Hell yes XD
Do you think slash is just a phase?
God I hope not. I very much doubt that I'll ever 'grow out of it' if that's what you mean.
Could you simply stop slashing?
Could I simply stop breathing??? The answer to both is a pretty resolute NO!!
What do you think about...
Ratings G to PG-13
Fine if I'm not feeling in the mood for anything too porny.
Ratings R to NC-17
My favourite number that XD
Can be a lot of fun.
I live for these and I blame kookiety for it XD
I'm an angst whore, I used to only write angst, angst is good
Too much kinda makes me want to vomit.
Sweet in moderation and where appropriate.
My kinks demand it dear.
Dark is good, not black dark but dark dark is fine.
I have written one (little Beyblade drabble) and I may be sort of planning another but as I said before, probably my least favourite genre there is.
I like the recovery part of that, nomdeplume's Nightmare on AFF is a good fic for this category.
I feel like I should know this one :-/
I've written them, and I don't mind them but I don't like them to be too perfect because, let's face it, they're not!
Fine, Roy and Ed are often in an established relationship in most fic I read/write
Why even ask the question?? Havoc/Roy/Ed is love, Renji/Ichi/Byakuya is bliss XD
Do I even need to answer this??
If I'd been answering this a few weeks ago I'd have said not a lot, there are some I like but I read too much m/m to have time for this but now that I'm venturing into this teritory I have to admit to liking it a tad more.
Slashing a children's book/movie
Does completely butchering Snow White count?? ^^; I didn't use the actual characters, they were replaced with FMA and Bleach characters so does it still count?? I may also have an Ederella in the works ^^;
Someone mentioned this being shota and if that is the case then only if it's Soubi/Ritsuka or Sebastian/Ciel. I'm not ready to venture beyond those two pairings for that.
And another question I do not feel the need to answer. If you don't know the answer by now, you really haven't been paying attention.
The importance of charactarization
High in plot fics. There is no real plot without good characterisation but in PWP, who cares?? It's all about the porn people XD
Crackfic fine, its crackfic, they have to be ooc, its a law! Any other time, kept to a minimum is good. There will always be oocness in stories because everyone differs on the little things that class as IC.
Hah, I laugh in the face of your canon - unless it works and then I'm all for it XD
Meh, I can take it or leave it. I knows what I like and that'll do me.
In your face cliches I can live without but subtle ones, why not? :)
NO! There has only ever been one mpreg story I have ever liked and again it was written by nomdeplume and called 'For him, for her'.
Been there, done that. Crackfic always loves the crossovers, anything else has to be handled right for it to work.
Group Slut Fics
In other words, would I like an Ed orgy/gangbang? FUCK YES!!! Would I like to see Ichigo getting fucked repeatedly by multiple partners at the same time? How's YES grab you?
I never used to like it, but then I watched Ouran (Twincestttttt XD) and then Blysse corrupted me (Elricestttttt XD) and now I'm pretty much loving the incest.
I'm guessing Roy/Ed would class, or Maes/Al (don't ask ^^;) so yes.
Het pairings in a slash fic
As a background pairing, fine (again, been there and done that)
Is good, I like the plot.
Is candy, I like candy ;D
I want to say I hate them, but I'm guilty of them so oops :D
LJ fics and communities
I do post on other sites but I primarily use LJ for my fic fix.
Big Name Fans
Politics in a slash story
Sometimes necessary for the plot. Politics is a pretty broad subject, it's difficult to escape if you do plot fics.
Wake up Gay
*Shakes hand in an undecided guesture*
Your pet peeve:
I'm not sure I have one. Unless shipbashing would count.
Your advice to new slashers:
Write what you enjoy, take on board constructive critism, it all helps and just keep trying. Practice makes perfect.
Your slash wish list:
Havoc/Roy/Ed, Havoc/Roy/Maes/Ed, Kenpachi/Byakuya/Ichigo, Byakuya/Renji/Ichigo, oh God the list is endless XD
