Why did you start writing hanfic? How long have you been writing?I started writing in the spring of 2012. I’d wanted to start some sort of creative writing for a while but didn’t know how to get started or what to write about. I’d been reading others’ hanfic for a few months and thought it’d be the perfect way for me to be able to start exploring my own skills.
What are your favorite hanfic stories and authors?There are so many good hanfics about at the moment and they’re all a little ‘outside the box’ which I love. The Listener by Sarah Irene is unique with it’s constant flipping between past and present chapters. The Innocents by Paola has the feeling of being a real novel and it’s dystopian setting is fantastic. TeamZaylor’s Bodyguard is building into an intriguing read and I like how the three authors work together on a chapter. Loaded God Complex is hilarious, something I really look forward to reading as it’s light-hearted. Again, I love the way that having more than one author gives the piece a different depth. I also love Diamond’s writing. From the darkness of Make You Feel My Love to the pure smut of her one shots, the technicality of the writing never ceases to amaze me.
What’s your favorite brother and/or pairing to write?Most people know that I’m an ‘Ike girl’ so he’s my favourite brother to write. I’ve paired him with OFCs in my stories. In many stories Isaac is often portrayed as moody or simply doesn’t feature at all so I wanted to try and re-address this.
