Some Excerpts

Why did you choose your pen name?

The Ayla comes from Ayla in the Clan of Cave Bear series and the Pascal comes from the packet of sweets I was nibbling on at the time.

When did you start writing fanfiction?

Technically I began writing fanfiction in about October 2000, but I didn't actually know what fanfiction was at the time.

Would you agree that fanfiction is a genre dominated by women, and if so, why do you think it's so?

I couldn't speak for fanfiction in general as I have only participated in the HP fandom. The HP fandom though does seem to be dominated by women. I could venture a guess as to the reasons, but the guess would most likely be incorrect.

This is a site devoted to antagonists. Could you reveal us your favourite Mr. Bad Guy?

Overall, I would say that it would be the pre-miraculous-transformation Scrooge from Dicken's 'A Christmas Carol'. He's fascinating. From HP, I would say Tom Riddle. He is technically waging a war against his own kind, a mentality that interests me greatly.
