Buffy - red and terrible and red

Variety is Spicy

 I just reposted all the fic I've written in the past two months which includes:
Two Faith/Giles fics
One Wes/Lilah fic
One Faith/Angel fic
One Cordy & Wes fic
One Anyanka & Halfrek fic
One Buffy & A Naughty Fairy fic
One Buffy/Angel fic
One Buffy/Spike fic
One Buffy/Spike & Cordy/Angel fic
 
That's pretty damn spiffy if I do say so myself.  Usually I write a ton of Spuffy and Buffy fics.  Check me out!  Unsurprisingly, I feel like I did the best job with my Buffy/Spike (writing them is like home, sweet, home), but after that I'm most pleased with my Faith povs and Faith/Giles (nobody else ships this!  They are so unsung!).  Hmm.  I think I need to rewatch AtS Season 2 so I can write some Angel/Darla and Darla/Lindsey (and maybe some Angel/Lindsey for menomegirl ).

I'm probably going to go ahead and write whatever works for me, but I'm curious what people on my flist would be interested in reading.  This is mostly an excuse to post a poll, but it's also fun to gauge interest.  Clicky!

What would you most like to read?

Fic meme!

Gakked from dollsome 

Here's my fic masterlist.  Also, you can check my fic tag for my most recent dozen or so stories.

I think it would be fun to talk about stories, but the usual memes are like, "What happens next?" "Tell me about Character A?" Which isn't so much talking about stories as it is writing more of a story. But you know how sometimes you read something and you're like, "I got ___ out of this story, I wonder if I have that right?" or "What on earth was ____ supposed to be?" and it's too awkward to ask the author? Now you could totally ask!

I've heard people say that writing is hard because you have to make decisions, but we never really talk about the decisions we make with stories or why we make them. We talk about plot bunnies, but not about how we actually turn them into a story.

And it seems like a lot more fun to do that than to do working.

So, if you wanted, ask me questions! (Or use this to ask your flist to ask you questions).

What were you trying to do [here]? Why did you decide to ____? This is what I thought about xyz, is that what you were going for? What made you write ____? Why did you decide to do this? And so on.


These memes never seem to take off. Which is a shame 'cause talking about writing stories is so much fun. I have epic length discussions with my beta buds about storytelling.
