    pittwitch:
    Thank you! I'm really glad these two can transcend the game setting. It means I'm doing something right!
    Fairy Slayer:
    As my favorite paladin keeps telling me, good will always triumph, right? And I'm glad the character growth is working as well. I'm sometimes on shaky ground there, so this is good to hear!
    Long term is a relative thing for these two. Surviving the Joining means they have about 30 years to live, before they succumb to the taint themselves. Their mastery of it is a temporary thing. But Wraith would be quite happy to spend those 30 years with Alistair, if fate (and an evil author-type wench) permits.

    BronxWench got a reaction from DemonGoddess in Older writers?   
    December 1956 here, so I guess that makes me one of the older kids on the block!
    What I do find encouraging, however, is that so many of us (and I mean all ages here) are writing. Dear sweet gods, does that ever make me feel better, because if the art of playing with words is ever reduced to 140 characters or less one a permanent basis, then I'm going to start feeling old. Until then, though, I'm just another kid in the sandbox.

    Since Apollo is busy today, I've done all the shopping for the welcoming feast, and will be prepping things so that we can be ready to feed the starving hordes properly. My kitchen is smelling terrific, btw...
    And as for naked, well, yum!

    I arrive at the beach house and immediately head off to the kitchen to tuck away the goodies for the welcome feast. The two elves beside me are carrying the garment bags and suitcases for our stay, and I give them each a lingering kiss before sending them up to our room to put away what little clothing we've packed. They are so charming together, one dark and elegant, and the other so golden and slightly tousled. I'm eager to get the food put away so that I can hurry upstairs to our room and join them, but I cannot help watching as their matching kilts swing around their elegantly muscled legs. They know I am watching, and put a little extra sway in their step to entice me.
    Once they are out of sight, I return to the task of putting away the food for tonight's meal. I finish quickly, the memory of those swaying kilts adding impetus to my actions.As I hurry up the stairs to join my lovely elves, I feel a tingle of anticipation. This vacation is exactly what I have needed, and although I am quite tired, just the prospect of sleeping curled between Sand and Vale is more than enough for this first evening.
    I reach the room, and I cannot help but smile. Sand and Vale have put away our clothing, and opened all the windows so that I can enjoy the sea air and the lovely breeze. They have also managed to shed their kilts and are curled up on the bed, kissing each other so sweetly that I am loathe to interrupt. Vale sees me first, and he and Sand both turn to smile at me, holding out their arms in welcome. This is going to be such a perfect vacation...

    BronxWench got a reaction from Techno-Ninja in Writing or typing?   
    I started out writing longhand, in a series of notebooks, going through pens at a prodigious rate, and working on my laptop desk or at the pool. Then I would type everything up on the computer, and edit, edit, edit...
    It got colder, and I moved indoors, and eliminated the middle man, so to speak, and now I work on the computer. I still make notes to myself on all sorts of things, including scraps of paper, post-it notes, and my arm.
    Many, many years ago, I had an old Royal typewriter, with the cloth ribbons, and I used to love pounding away on that old thing...

    First of all, thank you! They are pretty sweet, but I blame it all on Alistair's influence.
    But you hit squarely on what was bugging me with this fic. The time lapse isn't clear when you're hopping from flash fic to flash fic like I'm doing, and it's hard to squeeze enough backstory in to make the progression of their relationship make sense. I think, depending on the next prompt, I can either make it clearer or somehow get enough backstory in there to make it more logical, and therefore believable. I get lost in other descriptions... and then I forget that not everyone is actually living inside my head with me! (Gods, I hope not -- it's a mess in here!)
    But I do like this pair, and I will be writing more of them!

    Fairy Slayer: Thank you so much for the review! Yes, I am such a geek when it comes to the lore and background stuff, but it makes it easier to write in a world when I understand it thoroughly. I'm especially glad that the bits of elvish aren't too jarring, since it seems Wraith would certainly think in what little elvish he knows. Alistair is sort of opening up a bit, but I'm not quite sure he's going to be ready for Wraith... But these two will be back!

    1. How about a brief introduction of yourself?
    I am an evil wench with an overactive imagination, and far too much time on my hands in which to indulge myself.

    2. Fabulous! And what got you into fanfiction to begin with?

    I had an unfortunate encounter on a gaming forum with something known as "The Shirtless Saga." I would explain, but there really isn't enough brain bleach on hand.
    3. I see, so what kind of fanfiction do you like to write?
    I write fantasy, usually set in the Forgotten Realms world, although I am planning an original project in the near future.
    4. Do you tend to write the same pairings/characters? Or are you a fandom whore?
    ::clears throat:: I am a wench, NOT a whore, thankyouverymuch. I don't charge.
    5. What is your more popular fanfic and why do you think people like it so?
    I would suppose, since I only have one here, that it would be Alchemy.
    6. Forget other people, what is the fanfic you've written you're most proud of?
    At this point, none of them. I'm still writing or rewriting most of what I've done.
    7. Do you find writing easy? Hard? What are the most difficult aspects of writing you struggle with?
    The writing part is easy. Editing what I've written is harder. The thing I struggle the most with is getting enough detail out of my head and onto the medium of the moment, be it paper or pixels.
    8. Write a few sentences of so of your favorite pairing or character.
    “I'm probably going to need to be able to walk tomorrow,” Tae'uomi said, biting back a gasp as Sand shifted slightly and nipped her collarbone sharply.
    “You should have thought of that earlier, vanyacora, before you subjected me to an afternoon of tortured metaphor and labyrinthine reasoning.” Sand licked where he had nipped, and then sucked a rosy mark against her skin.
    Tae'uomi grinned, toying with the tip of Sand's ear. “I did distract Aldanon with Zhjaeve, ascaredhel. I should get credit for that, at least.”
    “I do not give credit, iskavanim. You should know that.” Sand's fingers slid down across her belly, dipped lower, and Tae'uomi cried out softly as her back arched.
    “I could order you to stop,” the genasi offered, shivering with pleasure.
    Sand looked at her, the predatory smile back. “Oh, please do. Really.” His tongue traced the edge of her ear, his breath hot. “I am quite prepared to remain awake all night exacting my reparations, since I managed to take reverie earlier while Aldanon was going on about something or other.”
    9. Are there any fanfiction trends/clichés you can't stand or are just sick of?
    I really can't stand the main character being the sole focus, without regard to the other players on the stage. I also hate characters who are "evil" and yet wind up "redeemed" without any necessity for atonement.

    10. Are you guilty of any of the fanfiction trends/clichés you now hate? Or any other ones?
    I try like the hells not to be.
    11. What was the first fandom you wrote for? Do you still like/participate in it?
    The first fandom I wrote for was the Neverwinter Nights CRPG fandom, set in the Forgotten Realms universe. And yes, I still write for it.
    12. Name your OTPs or most frequently written pairings/characters and explain what it is about them you love to write.
    I use a mixture of original characters and non-player characters with liberal disregard for frequency.
    13. What would you call your writing "style"?

    I have two distinct styles, but the one I use most frequently in my fan fiction is a more lyric style that tries to evoke a certain mood in my reader, and that is somewhat romantic in the emotional rather than physical sense. My other style is starker, where every word has to be exactly perfect.
    14. Do you read other people's fanfic? If so, what do you find yourself reading the most?
    Yes, I do read other people's fanfic. I tend to prefer fantasy settings, but I will also happily read fanfic based on movies or shows or books that I have enjoyed in the past.
    15. Name one thing you'd LOVE to write, but have been too afraid or shy to do.
    I fear almost nothing, and if I were shy, I would never have published any fan fiction in the first place. After all, it's the dusty little thoughts from the corners of my mind that I toss out like so many crumbs.

    16. Do you have trouble taking criticism? Or worse yet, do you have the dreaded bloated ego?
    I prefer constructive criticism, naturally, and welcome the opportunity to improve my writing. My ego is what it is.
    17. When you write, is there anything that helps? Music? Quiet room? Repairing toaster ovens?
    I prefer quiet when I write, and solitude. Since neither is generally available to me, I have learned to write with pretty much anything less than bloodshed occurring around me.
    18. What inspires you?
    What doesn't? It would be a shorter list. I've dreamed chapters. I've scribbled in notebooks at the side of the pool. I've written quick notes on my arm because I had no paper handy. Everything inspires me, except perhaps snow.
    19. Lastly, how would you sum up your fanfiction experiences and yourself as a writer?
    I've enjoyed my experiences as a fan fiction writer immensely. I've met other writers who are fascinating, and inspiring, and encouraging. I've learned so much, and I think I am growing as a writer.
    20. Tag some friends, because they'll have you for it.
    Let's see if my cookie trail works.... perhaps Nastrandir? Or Niche? ::rubs hands together::
