Ahhhh your asks are super super cool! How about 11, 18, 19, 29, and 45? :D
Ahhh more Fanfic author ask meme! (Also how did you manage to pick my 5 favorite questions while writing these? Like seriously you read 50 of them some of which were more typical and felt cliched and some I just really wanted to put in there and you picked out my favorites I hid throughout so they weren’t overwhelming. Why do you know me so well?)
11. Have you ever written a fic for a concept you know someone else has done before? How did it impact your writing process or feelings after posting?
18. What’s your most underrated fic?
Haha, my favorite is probably The Deal, which isn’t quite as popular as others I’ve written so I’d call that pretty underrated in my mind, but it has gotten a good amount of attention so most underrated has to go to the Apocalypse 2.0 Series (Afterlife, Curtain Call, Encore). I don’t know if it’s the beginning in Superphantomfalls (no DP necessary afterwards) or the amount of time it took me to write Encore but I really love the headcanons and plot and they don’t seem to get as much attention.
Granted I have to follow this by saying I’ve been incredibly lucky with support with fics. Sure I’ve never passed triple digits reviews or comments on anything but other than one not so great oneshot in a very small fandom written during high school I’ve gotten multiple reviews on everything I’ve written, even stuff I wince at later. Also I’ve never gotten a flame or rude criticism (worst I’ve seen is someone yelling at me about canon in an explicitly stated AU) so thank you everyone! It’s an amazing and humbling thing to see people following me as an author and seeking out other things I’ve written to read! So even if I prefer some works over others nothing’s been entirely ignored which given how small some of the crossovers I write for (most have been single digit fics when I’ve started) that’s honestly incredible.
19. If you had to pick one fic/scene/chapter of your work to describe your entire portfolio to a stranger, which would you pick?
This is hard because I’d say my portfolio is fairly diverse, because even though I don’t go out of my way to try different genres I just like writing whatever I haven’t seen yet and that’s a lot of things so… Picking from my bigger fandoms and fics I’m really proud of I’d go with The Deal for a fic, Bobby’s possession of Danny in Connection (Chapter 4) for a scene, and Suit Yourself for a chapter (does it count if it’s a one-shot? If not then The Deal Chapter 4. For some reason I’m really good at fourth chapters I guess…).
29. Does the division of your writing across fandoms line up with your reading? What’s the biggest discrepancy?
Actually not at all haha. I’ve seen a ton of new superfalls fics recently I haven’t caught up on, and I read a ton of fandoms I never get around for writing for, and a lot of the time don’t even go out of my way to post a ton on tumblr, actually. For instance, about 75% of what I’ve been reading in the past couple months is Miraculous Ladybug fics, but I don’t think I’ve even said I’ve started reading them on here and have made 0 original content (I’m not that good at romance and fluff and that’s like 90% of the fandom so as of now I have no ideas I could contribute sorry!). I also always go back and keep up with Tales Series games and their fandoms, doing most of my rereads there, but I haven’t written anything for any of them since high school.
45. If you had to call yourself an author of a single genre (besides fanfic) what label would you give yourself?
Another asked and answered here! Great minds question alike I guess!
