Excerpts

If you had to do it all over again, would you and what would you change in the process? I'm not a supporter of changing fics after I've posted them. I don't know why, I just never do it. It would ruin that fic in some way I think, because then it won't be the same fic as when I first posted. And I'm usually quite pleased with my fics when I'm done with them, so why change them at all? I just don't get it, sorry.
What is the story you “dare not write” or the picture “you dare not create”? I would never make the boys go through non-con or dub-con, ever, that's just not me. There's enough of that in real life, so I don't want to write or read about it if I can help it. But I think everything else is okay, because I'm open to most things, and... wait, out of character, that's not okay, ever. If you want to write them like a girl, or whatever, then make them a girl instead of some wimpy boy. Yeah, gender change is okay too. Wait, I think I left the question behind somewhere. Dare not? I think I *would* dare a lot.
How would you respond to a critic who says, “Oh, you write fan fiction? You’re not a real writer.” My answer: Then what do you call those words on my computer, together forming a text? Vegetables? Because to me... it looks like I'm a writer, writing a text. And if you don't think so then I don't care, because I'm happy with what I do. And before you say anything else about me or my writing, you needs to open that narrow mind of your, because if you don't, I won't take anything you say seriously.
