A more accurate list of artists that 35 year olds will jump to the dance floor for if we want to reach back into those ANCIENT days of our teens and early twenties, in no particular order (and with PLENTY to make fun of):
The Fugees, Right Said Fred, Janet Jackson (especially Rhythm Nation or later), TLC, Ricky Martin (livin’ la vida loca), Britney Spears, The Backstreet Boys, MONTEL FUCKING JORDAN (THIIIS IS HOW WE DOOOO IT), Sugar Ray (though will probably pretend it’s ironic), House of Pain, Robyn (the first time she was awesome, before you fuckers were born), Ace of Base (because we saw the damn sign, alright?), Usher, Coolio, En Vogue, Snow (It will DEFINITELY be ironic), Madonna (she is eternal, let’s be real), Salt N Peppa, The Proclaimers, Prince and the New Power Generation, PM Dawn, Red Hot Chili Peppers, SIR MIX-A-LOT, No Doubt, Color Me Badd (but we’ll be totally ashamed of ourselves), Mariah, Whitney, Michael, Guns N Roses, Barenaked Ladies, Will Smith (both during and post-Fresh Prince), Fastball, Chumbawumba, Nsync, The Spice Girls, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Hole, Jay-Z, Smashmouth, Moby, Blackstreet, R. Kelly, Christina Aguilera, Jimmy Eat World, Destiny’s Child (BEYONCE IS OURS), Pink, Nelly, Sisqo (thong th-th-th-thong), J-Lo,…
and on and on and on. If you’re gonna make fun of my generation, get it right. There are so many things you can mock us for, truly. But damn it, we grew up in the 90s. N-I-N-E-T-I-E-S. Oh, and you’re wearing our clothes, btw.

1. How did you first get into writing fanfic, and what was the first fandom you wrote for? What do you think it was about that fandom that pulled you in?

Oh god, well the first thing that I ever wrote in fandom was a kinky threesome pwp for White Collar back in 2010. So, I mean, it’s nice to know that my interests are still QUITE SIMILAR four years later. And idk, at the time I never thought of myself as a writer - a storyteller, sure, and someone who loved to think about narratives all the fucking time, and as a former actor I am all about character-driven stories. But I didn’t think of myself as being someone with ideas, or a point of view. That spring I finally decided to challenge myself and just to see whether I could even write anything, and then I could figure out if I actually LIKED IT, or if it was just a mental bridge I needed to cross. I never had much doubt about whether or not I could write porn, to be totally honest - that wasn’t the intimidating part. It was figuring out how to build a story, and what my own voice is, that was intimidating. And I’m still learning! 

White Collar was a really good starting place for me, because it wasn’t a huge fandom, so I wasn’t too intimidated, and I had a lot of really developed feelings about the dynamic among Peter and Neal and Elizabeth, so I knew exactly what I was trying to write. It’s a bit unusual in retrospect only because all of my major fandoms since then have been RPF, so I think it’s a bit funny that I started off writing in a TV fandom.

So yeah! I wrote that about two months before I fell into bandom, and then my love for MCR and those fucking assholes completely overtook me, and any hesitations or insecurities about whether or not I was good enough to be writing fanfic in the first place were completely overshadowed by how many stories I needed to tell about them. And now here I am! \o/

16. Summaries – Do you like them or hate them? How do you come up with them, if you use them?

I think that summaries are SUPER IMPORTANT - unless the author is someone whose work I always read no matter what the pairing or plot is, the summary does so much to determine whether or not I’ll read a fic, and so I assume the same could be true for people deciding whether to read my stories. My summaries tend to be a combination of a couple of lines/paragraphs from the actual fic plus a simple description of the story’s plot arc or main tropes or whatever. I like a summary that gives a feel of what kind of fic it is, too, like whether it’s serious or funny or atmospheric or straight-forward or what. Sometimes I’ll just use the first couple of lines of a fic as a summary, if they give enough information. 

30. Do you have a favorite fic you’ve written? What makes it your favorite? And don’t forget to give us a link!

Current favorite in 1D is The New Posh and Becks! Last week I read it for the first time since posting it, and I was really pleased with it, and I felt like it both really works as a story and was what I was trying to write. I have so many feelings about both 1D and Arsenal that this is probably the most indulgent fic I’ve ever written (except for maybe On the Midtown Direct), and so I’m really happy that I think it holds up as something more than just a story of my personal heart.  

A life lived in fear is a life half lived.

1. How did you first get into writing fanfic, and what was the first fandom you wrote for? What do you think it was about that fandom that pulled you in?


2. Name the fandoms you’ve written in, and how much you’ve written in that fandom, and if you still write in it.

3. For each of the fandoms, what were your favorite characters to write?


4. Do you have a “muse” character, that speaks to you more than others, or that tries to push their way in, even when the fic isn’t about them? Who are they, and why did that character became your muse?

5. If you have ever had a character try to push their way into a fic, whether your “muse” or not, what did you do about it?

6. When you write, do you prefer writing male or female characters?

7. Have you ever had a fic change your opinion of a character?

8. Do you write OCs? And if so, what do you do to make certain they’re not Mary Sues, and if not, explain your thoughts on OCs.

9. Pairings – For each of the fandoms from question two, what are your three favorite pairings to write?

10. Pairings – Have you ever gone outside your comfort zone and written a pairing you liked, but found you couldn’t write, or a pairing you didn’t like, and found you could?

11. Genre – do you prefer certain genres of fic when you’re writing? What kind do you tend to write most?

12. Have you ever attempted an “adaptation” fic of a favorite book or movie but set in a different fandom?

13. Do you prefer canon or non-canon when you write? Has writing fanfic for a fandom changed the way you see some or even all of the original source material?

14. Ratings – how high are you comfortable with going? Have you ever written higher? If you’re comfortable with NC-17, have you ever been shocked by finding that the story you’re writing is G-rated instead?

15. Warnings – What do you feel it most important to warn for, and what’s the strangest thing you’ve warned for in a fic?

16. Summaries – Do you like them or hate them? How do you come up with them, if you use them?

17. Titles – Are they the bane of your existence, or the easiest part of the fic? Also, if you do chaptered fic, do you give each chapter a title, or not?

18. Where do you get the most inspiration for your fics (aka “bunnies”) from?

19. When you have bunnies, do you sit down and start writing right away, or do you write down the idea for further use?

20. Do you ever get bunnied from other people’s stories or art in the same fandom?

21. Sequels – Have you ever written a sequel to a fic you wrote, and if so, why, and if not, how do you feel about sequels?

22. Have you ever participated in a fest or a Big Bang? If so, write about your favorite experience in relation to one. If not, are there any you’ve thought about doing? And if not, why not?

23. When you post, where do you post to? Just your journal? Just an archive? Your own personal site?

24. Betaing – How many betas do you like to use to make sure there aren’t any major flaws in your fic? Do you have a Beta horror story or dream story?

25. Music – Do you listen to music while you write? Do you make playlists to get into a certain “mood” to write your fic? Do you need noise in general? Or do you need it completely quiet?

26. What is the oddest (or funnest) thing you’ve had to research for a fic?

27. Where is your favorite place to write, and do you write by hand or on the computer?

28. Have you ever collaborated with anyone else, whether writing together, or having an artist work on a piece about your fic?

29. What is your current project or projects?

30. Do you have a favorite fic you’ve written? What makes it your favorite? And don’t forget to give us a link!
