Why did you start writing hanfic? How long have you been writing?I’ve been writing hanfic since 2007, when I got back into the fandom. I had a really good idea for a story (I don’t remember it now) and decided that well, it can’t be that hard. I write anyways and have for most of my life. I was wrong about it being hard, by the way. I let a friend read it and she said I should post it to LJ and I did and she promoted it a little bit and people started wanting to read more from me and it snowballed from there.
You write a few different cest pairings. Do you have a favorite? If so, which and why?I love all of them, really. I’ll read almost anything but I have to admit, I love Tike. Taylor/Isaac is just… I don’t know how to explain it. People look at Zac and Taylor and see this chemistry and write about it. I do the same with Taylor and Isaac. I just really liked it and it quickly became a favorite. Zaylor and Zike also have a special place in my heart but Tike just… works better for me.
Where do your ideas and inspiration come from?
Anywhere. Everywhere. That’s, like, the least specific answer but it’s honest. One night at work, I was staring at a bowl of loaded mashed potatoes and I got this crazy idea for a story that I’m working on now or I’d tell you about it. The next night, I saw a music video on VH1 and decided to work on the next chapter of Writer’s Block. Sometimes a random conversation will spark an idea. I wrote a short about Isaac being a vampire and I think that idea came from watching Twilight and being so mad about how they changed vampires and just wanting the old school sexy, powerful ones back.I probably sound a little insane now. But still, between my old LJ account and this one, I’ve written a lot and it’s all one big whirlwind of ideas and stuff.
