29 – What is your current project or projects?

Princess Rahl, Some Kind of Miracle, and the story I'm working on with [ profile] meridian_rose, as well as any fests I end up signing up for, the hiatus challenge on [ profile] legendland, and the bits and pieces of stories I'm still hoping will coalesce into some kind of finished product someday.

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

I like almost all of my stories (with a few notable exceptions). Some of the most fun I've ever had while I was actually writing was for The Unravelling or the Perils of Powerful Magic; intellectually I found Lady Rahl and Undone to be important, since I feel they explore issues and themes I thought were implied in the show without being stated; Master and Killing with Kindness were both really hard for me because they're so dark, but they wouldn't leave me alone until I'd written them; Wedding Anniversary was hard because it was my first real NC-17 fic...(okay, so that's kind of a lot...)

My current favorite is probably Hope. During this meme, I've mentioned how the best stories are the ones that insist on being written, for whatever reason. As soon as I saw the prompt, the idea for Hope was in my mind, but it took me awhile to be able to articulate what I wanted to do even to myself, and then it was quite hard to write, to the point where I was convinced it wasn't any good at times - and I was terrified of not being a good enough writer to realize my vision. (This probably sounds silly to non-writers, but it was a real struggle for me.) So that's the story of which I'm most proud.

(I also wrote quite a bit for Harry Potter; Evans the Mudblood is probably my favorite of my HP fics - it's second person, which was difficult, but worth it, I think.)

I love so many of your fics, but "Hope" is probably my favorite, too - a fairy-tale horror story. I always find something new to appreciate when I go back to read it.

"Destiny Swap" is one of my personal favorites.

"Lady Rahl" was one of the first Seeker fanfics I ever read and it made quite an impression on me.

I can't wait to see what happens with "Princess Rahl".

Thank you :D

One of the best things about writing is how much I've learned through my and other people's stories and comments.

You especially always make me see things in new and interesting ways - thank you :D

(I should be extra grateful to 'Lady Rahl,' because until it got recc'd on Recc'd by Seekers, I didn't even know about LJ. Then I found PP and met all these amazing people :D)

We haven't had more Princess Rahl for a while, but I know what it is to try and write chaptered fic, so I'm not nagging, not at all.

Unravelling was amazing :D

I'm going to check out that second person POV HP fic too :D

Princess Rahl is at a tricky stage right now - I still know what I want to do, but I've changed a lot as a writer since I started. But it'll happen ;)
