Another one, just because.
Do you read or write fanfiction?
I mostly write it. I used to read more, but now my interest in fandom is close to 0%. Right now, I'll read maybe one or two fics a year.
When did you first start reading/writing fanfiction?
Reading: 10 or so. Writing: Since I was 8-9.
What was your first fandom?
Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
Link/Zelda from Oot.
What website do you use most?
I think I use LJ and ff.net equally.
What do you think of Fanfiction.net?
It's good for posting fic and getting more feedback. It's not so great for quality fic, but I don't read much fic anyway. ff.net isn't so great for quality reviews, but the quality reviews you DO get seem much more special because of that.
What fandoms have you written in?
Zelda (lots of games) Harry Potter, Tenchi Muyo, Phantom of the Opera, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Legend of Korra, Black Butler, Bleach, Rurouni Kenshin, Final Fantasy: Crisis Core. I think that's it.
Zelda series: Link/Zelda, Ghirahim/Fi, Ghirahim/Zelda.
Bleach: Byakuya/Yoruichi, Byakuya/Hisana, Gin/Rangiku, Ishida/Orihime, Ichigo/Rukia, Ulquiorra/Orihime, Urahara/Soifon, Mayuri/Retsu
Korra: Amon/Korra (implied, anyway)
Black Butler: Sebastian/Beast
Rurouni Kenshin: Soujiro/Misao, Kenshin/Kaoru
Harry Potter: None.
Phantom of the Opera (sooo long ago): Erik/Meg
FF CC: I don't even remember, I do remember writing for it, though.
Any fandoms you would like to write in?
Currently, not really. I hate fandom. Any fandom. I avoid fandoms as much as I can.
Do reviews affect how you write in any way?
Sometimes. If I get an influx of really nice, thought-out reviews, I feel I have to deliver that same quality again and again, or the readers won't be satisfied. Overall, though, I'd say no. If it's a flame/dumb criticism, my general attitude is "IDGAF."
Do you use a beta?
For my fic Who By Fire.
What ratings do you read/write?
I'll read and write anything NC-17 and below.
What warnings have you used on your fiction?
Sex warning, masturbation warning, a spoiler warning here or there...I think that's it.
Do you have any squicks?
Noncon, dubcon, torture, rape, incest (I'm looking at you, ByaRuki), shota/loli...to name a few.
Do you Role-play online? If so, what?
Have you ever stolen something from another person's work?
I think when I was like, 13 I plagiarized someone's work on ff.net and again on aff.net.
Favorite fandom to write/read?
Write: Right now, Zelda. Bleach is up there too. Black Butler was fun. I don't read much, though.
Right now, it's Ghirahim/Zelda.
Just take a look at all my other memes, they're all the same people <3
How long should a chapter be?
Since I'm only writing one multi-chap fic right now, I try to get at least 3,000 words minimum for each chapter. For READING chapters, I like chapters around 3,000-6,000 words. Anything above that feels like a chore.
Do you write/read drabbles?
I write them, mostly. Lots and lots of drabbles and oneshots. They're my specialty.
Any fandoms you avoid?
I avoid even the fandoms I'm IN, but I avoid the Black Butler and Zelda: Skyward Sword fandoms the most. As for fandoms I'm not in, I'm kinda sick of Supernatural, The Avengers, Hunger Games, and Game of Thrones. Those are about all I ever see anymore, especially on places like Tumblr. Pages and pages and pages of those ones.
Pairings you avoid?
It depends on the series, but here are a few: Ghirahim/Link, Ghirahim/Demise/Link, Ganondorf/Link, Dark Link/Link, Link/Sheik (though I'm a liiiittle partial to Link/Sheik if the fic is good) Link/Saria. For Bleach, basically all yaoi and Byakuya/anyone but Yoruichi or Hisana, or Yoruichi/anyone but Byakuya. Basically: Unless it's canon, I avoid all yaoi/slash pairings and all het pairings that break my OTPs.
Warnings you avoid?
Rape, noncon, dubcon...basically, I avoid warnings involving my squicks.
Do the number of reviews tell how good a story is?
Absolutely not. I've seen amazing fic on ff.net get zero to very few reviews, while shitty fics are getting hundreds and hundreds. However, I think a few long, quality, or nice reviews are much better than tons of pointless one-liners like "update soon plz!" and such. I'm more likely to read a fic if it has more of the former reviews than the latter.
What do you think of Mary Sues?
I just avoid them, unless they're so bad they're funny.
Have you ever flamed someone?
Yes, but I hesitate to call it a flame. It was a harsh crit of a story I found, once, where someone made a character bulimic and had obviously done 0 research on what bulimia actually is.
Have you ever been flamed?
Yes. I think the first one I got was (deservedly) for that fic I plagiarized when I was 13. Other than that, I can't think of any outright FLAMES I've gotten. I've gotten tons of stupid criticism and pointless one-liners, or had readersr who felt entitled to how they think I should write, but never really FLAMES.
