I've been considering kink memes, participating in them, I mean. And while I went over the prompts and was thinking about filling one, I'm a kink meme, is the main point of writing the fic to flesh out the kink? Or is the kink part of it, and you should also try to keep your characters in character?

If both, what is more important to the fic, the kink or the character?

I'm wondering because if I don't personally see the characters behaving a certain way or having a particular kink, but it's my kink and I want to write it with those characters, what should I be trying to do? Stay in character or stay true to the kink, if the two were kind of mutually exclusive?

What would you expect to find in my fic?

Or whatever. Willow was so much better at this alliteration thing.

This is all over my flist so what the hey. I didn't always pick the obvious from any given favorite show. It doesn't mean they were favorites, it must means they didn't 'resonate' - like, make me think of them and their motivations, actions, fate, years later. I mean, I still sometimes wonder what it was like for Charles (MASH) after the Korean War. If he fit back into his old life in Boston or if he went looking for a something that was 'else'.

List fifteen of your favorite characters from different fandoms, and ask people to spot patterns in your choices, if they're so inclined.

1. Cordelia Chase (AtS & BtVS)

2. Angel (AtS)

3. Buffy Summers (BtVS)

4. Spike (BtVS)

5. Xena (Xena: Warrior Princess)

6. Ares (Xena: Warrior Princess)

7. Alex Krycek (X-Files)

8. Maxine Shaw (Living Single)

9. Whitley Gilbert (A Different World)

10. Charles Emerson Winchester III (MASH)

11. Worf (Star Trek)

12. Seven of Nine (Star Trek)

13. Aaron Hotchner (Criminal Minds)

14. Han Solo (Star Wars)

15. Spock (the Rebooted Star Trek)

Eh, some of the above feel like fillers. But whatevs. I liked them enough to think of them, so they're valid.

Snagged from, um, several people on my flist.

If you were asked to pick one scene, one shot, one detail, one moment of some kind out of all the things I've written and say "This, this, for whatever reason, I remember, this is something that struck home with me, that I wanted to keep," what would it be?

And it's totes okay if there aren't any. :)

That I wanted to post tonight but I didn't have anything in particular to say. Thanks to [ profile] ficbitch82, I can now overshare the hell out of myself.

in case, shockingly, there are those who don't care for minutia )

But there's a first time for everything, right?

Here goes:


♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Warm fuzzies are little messages of love and affection for
when you are feeling down or unloved, or just need a tiny pick me up, and be reminded
of how much you are loved, and how special you are to those around you

ETA: So clearly my coding handicap is going strong and steady. *sigh* Here's a rough and raw link.

I'm a little disappointed in myself for having this be a day late, but that's better than not posting at all, is it? Especially so close to the finish.

So, an episode I hated that everyone else loved....

So the days are somehow getting away from me. I thought my double post had caught me up yesterday but when I looked at the calendar today, I realized I was still behind. So here's another double post and maybe I'll truly be on schedule after this.
