30 Day Fanfic Meme  
It's been a while since I've done one of these. Let's hope I actually finish this one. I snagged it from scrollgirl.

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?

I started writing fanfic because of the two guys in my current icon. I'd been reading fanfic for years but it was Smallville, more specially Clark/Oliver that prompted me to write my first fic. It was mostly because of the lack of fic for this pairing that prompted me to write my own. I seriously fell in love with Clark/Oliver in the very beginning ... by the end of 6.04 'Arrow', I was sold. But after every episode, when I googled for fics, I couldn't find much. In fact, I found LJ through a google search ... ollieville to be specific. I created an account so I could join and days later, I was writing fic.

I had read slash but I had to overcome a serious mental block to not only write fic, but to write Clark/Oliver. I love to write and come up with a lot of ideas but I'm a lazy person. If there is a lot of fic for a certain pair, I won't write it unless I'm really inspired. I'd rather read fic. When it came to Clark/Ollie, I knew that if there was to be more fic, I'd have to write it myself. So I did. And I haven't looked back.

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?
28) Have you ever collaborated with anyone else, whether writing together, or having an artist work on a piece about your fic?
29) What is your current project or projects?
30) Do you have a favourite fic you've written? What makes it your favourite? And don't forget to give us a link!
