Fanfic Question Meme - Question 3

I'm avoiding work, because it's Friday, and I've worked all week, so I'm sick of it. Anyway, in an effort to feel like I was being productive, while not ACTUALLY being productive. I thought I'd do another question from this fanfic questio meme.

3 – For each of the fandoms from day two, what were your favorite characters to write?

Supernatural - oh man, this is a tough question. I like writing Dean's "voice", but I like writing Sam's "head." Sam's such an internal guy, that it's fun to get in there and poke around and explore what I think might be going on. I tried to write a Cas POV story once (it was essentially the demented'verse story Purgatory, but from Cas' POV and without the Harry Potter characters)  and I think I got maybe 500 words in before I quit. I couldn't do it... mind you, if you've read Purgatory, you'll probably figure out there's a very good reason why I had such difficulty capturing my headcanon for what the inside of Cas' head is like.

Harry Potter - I love writing Teddy Lupin, or, the Teddy Lupin that I've created in the demented'verse. There's a reason he features so heavily in the latest Prophets and Potions stories. I just find him both delightful and fascinating. I think it's because I made him such an imperfect thing with self-esteem issues and constant low-level anxiety that he's a completely failure of a person.

That being said, I just wrote a one shot (not published and perhaps not quiet finished yet) that's a Draco Malfoy POV - and my god, Draco makes me laugh. I absolutely love writing him... which is kind of hilarious, because when I decided to add him into the story back in Damned Demented Demons, I was terrified of writing him. I was never a huge Draco fan in the books - I only started to find him interesting in Book 6 and 7, when Harry started picking up on the fact that Draco was experiencing a huge moral conflict. Anyway, I love my demented'verse Draco.

Sherlock - It's been a while since I've written Sherlock... I mean, in my Unfortunate Brother series, my answer would be Merlin. :P But, he's not actually in Sherlock... so, I guess it would have to be John? Maybe Sherlock... honestly, I don't know. Sherlock is difficult, because you've got to write him brilliant... so, John's easiest, because he can be of a normal level of intelligence.

Merlin - Merlin, I suppose. I mean, it's always easiest to write the person that knows what's going on. Though, if we're talking about Post-Series Resurrection fics, then the answer is Arthur.

Captain America - Bucky. I've only ever written Bucky. Eventually, I'd like to expand the one lengthy story I wrote and write it from other character's POVs, but even then, my answer will probably still be Bucky.

Okay, perfect timing to take me to my 11am meeting.

Peace out!

Rewatches and JK Rowling

Work day is over! Yay!

So, let's talk about two things:


Good News: I've ordered myself the DVDs! So, they'll be here by the end of next week.

Bad News: I do not have as much time this year to do rewatches as I have in the past. This is largely because my life is better than it was in the past. I have more friends to spend time with and I have a job - and perhaps soon I'll have an even better job. So, yay life! But, boo time! Anyway, this is all to say that I'm not sure what my rewatch schedule will look like. I may end up doing just one episode per week, as opposed to years where I could crank out a rewatch every 3rd day.

JK Rowling - Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Those of you who are Harry Potter fans may have noticed in the news that JK Rowling is writing a stage play that will serve as a "Eighth Book" to the Harry Potter series. The story will be about an adult Harry and his middle child, Albus Severus.

Now, those of you who are Demented'verse fans may have noticed how I try VERY hard to keep to Potter canon, even the little short stories that Rowling released on Pottermore - after one such story came out, I had Ron retire from being an auror. Now, that being said, probably something the likes of a TWO PART stage play will hold far too much new canon for me to not have already contradicted it in some way.

So, yeah... part of me is kind of pissed off at Rowling for continuing the story - which is sort of hilarious, because I'm sure if I were just a fan of the books and not a fanfiction writer, I would be thrilled and eager to learn what's going on with Harry and Albus. :P So, yeah, I'm a little annoyed, but the good news is that I've already taken the Demented'verse AU from SPN, so having it forcibly be made AU from Harry Potter isn't the end of the world.

It's no longer the most canonically accurate crossover the world has ever seen and that was a decision that *I* made. *sticks out tongue at JK Rowling*
