day 3 & 4  
Okay, I missed yesterday so I'm posting days 3 & 4 of my 30 Day Fanfic Meme together.

3) For each of the fandoms from day two, what were your favorite characters to write?
I'll just go with Smallville, since that's the only one where I've written multiple fics, and my favorite character to write is Clark. I think it's because I think about him so much that I find it easier to work from his POV. I see the whole show in his POV and when I write fic, the same thing happens. The show left a lot to be desired when it came to Clark's feelings, especially in s6 & 7 and that's when I first started writing fics, in that time frame. That's why I easily could fill in the blanks through fanfic.

4) Do you have a "muse" character, that speaks to you more than others, or that tries to push their way in, even when the fic isn't about them? Who are they, and why did that character became your muse?
That would probably be Chloe or later on, Lois. I think it's because while I have ships, I really appreciate friendships even more and I loved the one between Chloe and Clark, mostly in s4-6. And of course, I like the friendships between Lois and almost everyone, whether that's Chloe or Clark or Oliver. I see them both as strong characters who would help their friends. Plus, they're usually the ones (other than Oliver) who bring in the snark and the common sense. Clark's a smart guy but he can be overly cautious, especially in my fics, and these two, when they're not the star of the story, are very helpful in pushing him along (and/or threatening others who might hurt him).

>1) How did you first get into writing fanfic, and what was the first fandom you wrote for? What do you think it was about that fandom that pulled you in?
2) Name the fandoms you've written in, and how much you've written in that fandom, and if you still write in it.
3) For each of the fandoms from day two, what were your favorite characters to write?
4) Do you have a "muse" character, that speaks to you more than others, or that tries to push their way in, even when the fic isn't about them? Who are they, and why did that character became your muse?
5) If you have ever had a character try to push their way into a fic, whether your "muse" or not, what did you do about it?
6) When you write, do you prefer writing male or female characters?
7) Have you ever had a fic change your opinion of a character?
8) Do you write OCs? And if so, what do you do to make certain they're not Mary Sues, and if not, explain your thoughts on OCs.
9) Pairings – For each of the fandoms from day two, what are your three favourite pairings to write?
10) Pairings – Have you ever gone outside your comfort zone and written a pairing you liked, but found you couldn't write, or a pairing you didn't like, and found you could?
11) Genre – do you prefer certain genres of fic when you're writing? What kind do you tend to write most?
12) Have you ever attempted an "adaptation" fic of a favourite book or movie but set in a different fandom?
13) Do you prefer canon or fanon when you write? Has writing fanfic for a fandom changed the way you see some or even all of the original source material?
14) Ratings – how high are you comfortable with going? Have you ever written higher? If you're comfortable with NC-17, have you ever been shocked by finding that the story you're writing is G-rated instead?
15) Warnings – What do you feel it most important to warn for, and what's the strangest thing you've warned for in a fic?
16) Summaries – Do you like them or hate them? How do you come up with them, if you use them?
17) Titles – Are they the bane of your existence, or the easiest part of the fic? Also, if you do chaptered fic, do you give each chapter a title, or not?
18) Where do you get the most inspiration for your fics (aka "bunnies") from?
19) When you have bunnies, do you sit down and start writing right away, or do you write down the idea for further use?
20) Do you ever get bunnied from other people's stories or art in the same fandom?
21) Sequels – Have you ever written a sequel to a fic you wrote, and if so, why, and if not, how do you feel about sequels?
22) Have you ever participated in a fest or a Big Bang? If so, write about your favourite experience in relation to one. If not, are there any you've thought about doing? And if not, why not?
23) When you post, where do you post to? Just your journal? Just an archive? Your own personal site?
24) Betaing – How many betas do you like to use to make sure there aren't any major flaws in your fic? Do you have a Beta horror story or dream story?
25) Music – Do you listen to music while you write? Do you make playlists to get into a certain "mood" to write your fic? Do you need noise in general? Or do you need it completely quiet?
26) What is the oddest (or funnest) thing you've had to research for a fic?
27) Where is your favourite place to write, and do you write by hand or on the computer?
