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).
