Biggest Anon Fangirl, huh? Congrats on getting xsunray jelly hehe. :33

G. Share a snippet from one of your favorite pieces of prose you’ve written and explain why you’re proud of it.

I think I'll choose a selection from my 'A Ghost in Mind' since it's the freshest in my mind. ^^

"Even her sullen expressions--eyelashes pointed south and cheeks lacking rosiness--upstaged any cover of Harper’s Bazaar. Tiffany had mistaken her inclination to stare at the woman (when Jessica wasn't already staring at her) for jealousy. It started off as such, then molded into something new. Something alien, unacceptable and god, it’s her ex’s girl on the side! Jessica was practically a widow at that point.

While they drank and bickered earlier, Tiffany caught herself flirting. Thank goodness for Jessica’s debilitating self-involvement or she would have surely noticed."


One big reason I chose is because I tend to write in bite-sized paragraphs. Though these aren't particularly long, it was nice to find a little chunk to discuss.

This is from Chapter Three of the 'Ghost' fic. I was extremely nervous about this chapter because it'd be JeTi's first sexual encounter. The multi-shot had only six parts, so I was afraid of rushing the intimacy. However, no matter how I scrolled through my story, it had to happen when it did. I'd always wanted to made a straight-up ~adult fic with angst on the side. 'Ghost' was an opportunity!

I like this segment in particular because, in a nutshell, it explains Tiffany's true train of thought while she interacted with Jessica. Through that frustration, the attraction couldn't be ignored. And, near the end, she still put in a dig at Jessica for being self-involved. Conflicted, but she was much more secure with acting on her feelings. So, when she made her advance, it softened the "wait, what?!" blow of them making out. Tiffany assessed the situation: ex's widow, alone in her house, and possible mutual attraction. Build-up can be just as sexy as the act itself, after all. :33

Thanks for asking, bb. *hugssss*

B. Is there a trope you’ve yet to try your hand at, but really want to?

Yes! Idol!Fic (AU, of course) and maybe something with action. I have ideas for both of these and I'm trying my hand at one of them. Stay tuned! (Or not, in case they don't happen. D;) Sexually, I'd like to try some clothed frottage. I find that hot.

C. Is there a trope you wouldn’t touch with a ten foot pole?

Omg yes. No gender-swapping. No main character het-love stories (I keep it gay lol). No gorey violence. No graphic rape. None of those fics where the reader's the character's love interest.

E. Share one of your strengths.

Hmm. I manage to finish all my ongoings/multishots. Hopethisdoesn'tjinxme.

F. Share one of your weaknesses.

This is a behind-the-scenes one. If I accidentally overplan a story, I grow bored with it and leave it there to rot. lolll So, I try to stay organized, but keep my ideas in chunks of craziness, 'cause it helps keep my writing flow loose.

P. If you only could write one pairing for the rest of your life, which pairing would it be?

Uggghhhhhh my brain isn't wired to write the same couple over and over again. For the sake of the question: YOONSIC. They're my absolute favorite and I don't have to pace around my room wracking my brain to picture chemistry. Second place would be JeTi. They create super versatile characters.

X. Have you ever deleted one of your published fics?

LOL nahhh, I haven't.

AB. Share three of your favorite fic writers and why you like them so much.

Boxxy, Dashy, and Constantplay!!

Boxxy aka boxxsaltz: When I was only a baby Soshi fic reader, I think first thing I read from her was a smut (I mean, duh) and being sooo asfkldjflsd *thud* about it. Then, I was bitten by the angst bug and got into her other stuff, too. I love that her stuff feels cinematic and very adult-- I don't have those awkward "how old is this person? this would never happen" moments for her stories. I trust anything she puts out. She's supremely talented.

Dashy aka dashelots: My first fic!bestie in the fandom. The one who encouraged me to post WGTG and asked me to beta. She's as incredible at writing as she is as a person. Very sweet and genuine and you can read it between her lines. Her stories have poetic simplicity and that's not easily acquired. It's a gift. Every piece on her page is A++++. And, she's a YoonSic lover. Can't go wrong with that!

constantplay: Funny how two of my favorite writers are angst-city, huh? Idk constant has a really raw quality to her (her? not sure. I'll just use that haha) writing and I'm always sucked in. Whenever she puts something out, I take note to sit down somewhere quiet and savor it. It's so starkly different from what I write and I think that's part of the appeal. She deserves so many Oreos. :)
checkinyourbracheckinyourbra on September 11th, 2014 08:06 pm (UTC)
AD. Do you accept prompts?

Short answer: Nope. On rare occasions, I've taken someone's suggestion and went running with it. And that's because I felt like writing something similar already. I'm a selfish writer in that respect, I suppose. I do write down suggested prompts, though. They could inspire future stuff.

AL. Talk about a review that made your day.

Ahhhhhh that would be so many. Even some of the shortest comments on my stories has gotten me grinning like a dummy at my screen. I still remember your super sweet comment on Practicing Lesbians, wenkey!! ^^ I declare I have the most clever readers/commenters ever.

BUT, this question asks for a review and I take that as specific. I'll give you links to two. They're both from WGTG (and rather lengthy):

1. From an Anon I affectionately called 'Cray Anon':
LINK

Cray Anon had these sassy stream-of-consciousness comments that never failed to have me howling with laughter. Her outrage at Tiffany going through Yuri's old stuff and claiming Seohyun's mother as her own put me in stitches. SO FUNNY.

2. From exp_itheta
LINK

This chick (Hiii, Numbers bb!) is brilliant at breaking fics down. I'm glad she lent her big ol' brain into analyzing my characters and giving in-depth reasoning behind her thoughts/predictions. The way she explained the YoonYulSic relationship was like she just stole the words from my head.

I'll be back to address AN. That one takes some work!! Hahah. I'm so happy you dropped by to ask these. Thank youuu. :3333
wenkeywenkey on September 12th, 2014 02:18 am (UTC)
LOL even after reading WGTG, I hardly understand a word of that crazy anon's reply. It's like they have ADD or something since they jump around like they're on a pogo stick. I'm surprised you even remember my comment. I think that was the second fic of yours I commented on...? The first being how wrecked I was about YoonYul in WGTG (sob). I really don't comment very often since I don't have much to say but I've literally read everything you've posted except for your newest one because I read there's angst in there (okay I admit I read a couple of the smut scenes, don't judge me!)

I think your reply to C is pretty much how I feel. I refuse to read anything gender-bender, het, or rape fics. I also don't read anything where the characters are obviously underage. It gets awkward fast. As far as your main pairing you'd like to write... I honestly never really considered YoonSic before reading your works. Especially Practicing Lesbians! Ugh has to be one of my favorites by you still.

P.S. Clothed frottage definitely is hot.
checkinyourbracheckinyourbra on October 30th, 2014 12:42 am (UTC)
Hey wenkey bb!! Remember me?? haha

Sooooo I took 843948394 gazilion years to answer this. Too many things happened. :OO

Hahaha that Anon was great. A little crazy is nice every now and then, y/y?? :33 Haha oh riiiight he YoonYul wreckage. *hugs* I enjoyed your reaction nevertheless~ I KNEW YOU'D COME BACK FOR THE SMUT. The angst isn't too much, is it?? xD YAYYY for YoonSic love!!

I couldn't come up with another "ending" per say, but I wrote this diddy for you just now:

--

Love changed people. Specifically, Im Yoona.

It made her question life. Blurt unintentional double entendres. Buy kitty cat headbands.
Kiss in public. Catch colds for stupid reasons.

Most importantly, it made her befriend crazies.

Only love would seat Yoona and her soft-spoken, yet thoroughly terrified girlfriend, in the front row of a rec center’s crew of anti-nicotine freedom fighters. She squeezed Jessica’s had in her lap, eyeing Sooyoung’s legion of walking, talking pretentiousness ignite a pyre only a few yards away. The withering mass crackled with dangerous promise. On top of the pile went a ‘CAUTION: FIRE’ sign.

Sooyoung fashioned several lightsabers made entirely of cigarettes. She and the mohawked dude rehearsed their fighting routine near a rather intimidating 8-ft match. The hoody string-chewer only hinted at a grand finale. “It’s going to be beautiful,” she droned, totally oblivious to Yoona’s worries, “We’re going to set fire to--” Then, her phone went off and the woman never heard what was supposed to go aflame.

Yoona guessed her and Jessica’s eyebrows.

“So, this is how you repay me for being an amazing girlfriend?” Jessica whined behind her protective glasses.

Eyeing the crew’s all-black ‘Ceci n'est pas une pipe’ shirts, Yoona grinned. “We should have had the wine first.”

“I should have changed.”

“I didn’t want to ruin the surprise.”

Jessica caught a stray fleck of ash with two fingers, shoving it into Yoona’s face as evidence. “We’re going to die. You must really like me.”

She blushed. “Something like that.”

With a smirk laced with assumptions, Jessica bumped Yoona’s shoulder. “How about we survive together instead? I want to hear about this ‘something’.”

“Over wine?”

“Only the best.”

“Deal.”

--

It's more like an outtake, I guess? Ah well, Hope you liked it. ;33

PS: Glad you agree. <3

K. Is writing your passion or just a fun hobby?

In general, it's for fun. However, I'm very passionate about things I create. I put a lot of love into every one of my fics. ^^

M. What’s the best writing advice you’ve ever come across?

Not sure where I saw it, but it was to write was you would want to read. That's very sound advice. Another is to never officially open myself up for prompts. hahah

N. What’s the worst writing advice you’ve ever come across?

In middle school English class. The teacher told us never to use passive voice in our stories. I know that was a long time ago, but it kinda messed me up. A happy medium for both active and passive is wayyy more palatable. That lady didn't know what she was talking about. =__=

O. If you could choose one of your fics to be filmed, which would you choose?

A Ghost in Mind!! Can you imagine the sexiness?!?! I can see it as a miniseries. :nosebleed:

Fluffypaws would make a really cute short film. :333

LOL at your half-failure of choices. xDDD

I'M NOT CHEATING. JUST MISUNDERSTOOD. Hahahahhahaha omg that one-side side-eye xDDDD

NO YOU DID NOT JUST MAKE UP A QUESTION. OMGGGG NOW I'M GONNA GO BACK TO YOUR QUESTION AND ADD WORK-Y ONES.

L. Is there a section of canon above all others that inspires you just a little bit more?

Taeyeon the dork. However, I must say my Taeyeon opinion is thanks to her instagram posts. She's such a goofy, try-hard hipster and I love those kinds of characters.

AC. If you could write the sequel (or prequel) to any fic out there not written by yourself, which would you choose?

I'd make a sexy one-shot sequel for karou95's 'Inspire' SeoSica fic. I wouldn't mind penning how their relationship matures. >__>

I'll be back for V and AO because OMG.
