Do you read or write fanfiction? Both

When did you first start reading/writing fanfiction? Reading: 1999/2000? Writing: 2003

What was your first fandom? Pretender, then Labyrinth, then BtVS/AtS

First ship? Pretender: Jarod/Miss Parker, Labyrinth: Sarah/Jareth, BtVS: Willow/Giles

What website do you use most? Livejournal, my site, Near Her Always, Willow's Lil Secret, Soulmates, Shades of Grey, of Demons & Destiny

What do you think of Fanfiction.net? Don't think anything of it. I very rarely go there, and usually only when working on my awards site.

What fandoms have you written in? Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel the Series

Pairings? Willow/Giles, Willow/Giles/Spike, Willow/Spike, Willow/Spike/Angel(us), Willow/Angel(us)

Any fandoms you would like to write in? Not really, I write enough pairings, with plans for more, in the one(s) I do write in.

Do reviews affect how you write in any way? Not really. Sometimes they give me ideas on where to go if I'm writing on the fly (which is how I usually write). And they'll often get me to write sequels when I hadn't been planning to.

Do you use a beta? A beta? More like 2-3 per story. I think I have 4 betas in my harem and I rotate them depending on the pairing I'm writing.

What ratings do you read/write? I real all ratings, but tend to prefer NC-17.

What warnings have you used on your fiction/read? I don't often write things that require warnings, but when I do, they tend to be: BDSM, bloodplay. I appreciate when writers include warnings so that I don't end up somewhere I'd prefer not to be, like dark!fic.

Do you have any squicks? Yeah, but I can't think of them now. I know them when I see them. Mostly they're word usage rather than content related.

Do you Role-play online? Yes

If so, what? I play Giles at _end_of_days

Have you ever stolen something from another person's work? Good Lord I hope not. Never would on purpose.

Favorite fandom to write/read? BtVS/AtS on both counts

Favorite pairing? Het: Willow/Giles, Willow/Giles/Spike, Willow/Spike, Willow/Spike/Angel, Willow/Angel, Willow/Lindsey Slash: Lindsey/Angel, Angel/Spike, Spike/Giles, Giles/Ethan

Favorite writer/writers? Tough question. In no particular order: Laura Smith, Monique, Carrie, Em North, Medea, and any authors on my flist who write.

How long should a chapter be? Reading: Long enough to move the story forward. Writing: I like my pages to be at least 6-8 pages long (in Word).

Do you write/read drabbles? I occassionally read them, but don't write them. I think they're pointless. (No offense to those of you who write them, but this is why I don't give feedback on drabbles.)

Any fandoms you avoid? It's not avoidance if you just don't care.

Pairings you avoid? Anything with Buffy. Xander paired with a vampire (again, sorry, but I'll never buy that).

Warnings you avoid? If you mean stories I avoid because of the warning: femslash (if it's the main pairing), mpreg, and usually non-con.

Do the number of reviews tell how good a story is? Not in the least. I know when I'm writing something good.

What do you think of Mary Sues? If I don't know that's what it is, it probably doesn't bother me. But I hate it when the characters act out of character and like the writer.

Have you ever flamed someone? No, but I've given constructive criticism.

Have you ever been flamed? Not exactly. I got a horrific review by a judge at an award site, but I think they were predjudiced against my pairing and/or knew nothing about fanfic.
