Interviews in the Series

Excerpt

# What's your nickname/pseudonym?:

Farfalla the Butterfly-Kitten, online, anyway. Farfalla Caqui in zines.

# Which is your favorite fandom?:

Star Trek: The Original Series

# Do you write in other fandoms than your favorite? If so, which ones?:

I visit TNG and DS9 from time to time; Master & Commander, Holmes/Watson, and Snape have inspired me in the past; and the movie version of "Chicago" is pretty much my f/f OTP, lol. I have this novel idea I'll never write about how Roxie finally learns, through having to help Velma out of a real jam once they're free and famous, how to have a heart for the first time in her life.

# Do you read in other fandoms?

Mostly if it's something by certain writers, or if I'm rec'd the story.

# Are you an OTP person?:

I tend to pair the characters off as I see them; K/S, Mc/Ba or sometimes Mc/Ch even though I know that's somewhat unlikely, Su/R, U/C, etc. I'm a big believer in K/S-as-canon, but I can see them having freedom to play outside the marriage.

# Are you a writer or an artist?:

I love to write and I think my talent is mostly there... I used to draw goofy K/S cartoons, and sometimes I do photomanips, but they're really not competitively good ^_^

# Do you only write online or do you write for zines as well?:

Mostly online, but I've gotten involved in the zine world recently and have stories coming out in the next issues of T'hy'la and Kindle My Heart (and hopefully Dark Fire as well!)

# What kind of stories are your favorites?:

Established relationship romance woven into an adventure story... kind of like what we'd have seen if the third five year mission (or second) had been filmed into a TV show with K/S being canon.

# Least favorites?:

Something where the K/S relationship is depicted as being something destructive or a negative influence in either of their lives, unless it's Spock with his head on backwards before V'ger gets to him. Anything where Kirk is an ass in ways I don't agree with, lol.

# How did you get into fan fiction?:

Always felt like making my own adventures with fictional characters, even from single-digit ages. I customize everything.

# Are you a slash fan?:

Yeah, being a slashy person in RL, but truth be told, other than K/S (which is 3/4 of what I write), all my other favorite pairings are het ones.

# If so, how did you become one?:

..uh... got born gay? Meep. Well, actually, it started in senior year of high school, when me and my at-the-time companion thought we'd thought of Holmes/Watson on our own. Haha! Then I found it online, and...
