cupc8keblonde said: When you write fanfic, do you have several WIPs/fic ideas that you're working on at once, or do you write one fic at a time? Also, do you have like a list of prompts/ideas/tropes you wanna write and you kinda go down the list, or are you just hit with a plot and have to write it? I realize these don't have to be either or questions, just curious.
Well, my usual method is get an idea, talk it out with my buddy Flaming-Muse, and then settle in until it’s finished. Lately, however I’ve been starting and stopping fics, which is aggravating. I think I have..six fics that are languishing on my computer? Boo. =/
I try to do the prompt thing, but unless I get an instant idea for it, it peters out. Usually it’s an idea grabs me and I can’t let it go until it’s finished.
Because I just posted one.

Rated T, god I hope you laugh, because I sure did writing it, 4K.
It was a good life. Steady. Quiet. No surprises. Not a one. Not in over six years. Nada, as some of the cowboys said. No sirree, Beacon Hills didn’t have a lick of drama or intrigue happening within its county lines. Not one little bit. Day in and day out, not a single surprise to cause a lick of worry. Stiles sighed and folded his towel carefully. Bored. He was bored. It was boring living in Beacon Hills.
…maybe just a little something interesting happening could be nice for a change, though.
Stiles would soon learn what the phrase “eat your own words” meant.

I don’t know why I’m yelling, it just seemed important. If you missed this and wanted a hearty laugh (and the image of Derek Hale in black leather chaps) today, then feel free to read the short story I wrote yesterday. :)
So that was me, and I didn’t intend to submit it on anon *blushing ferociously*. And your reply (with added wonderful gif) made my incredibly shitty week :)
Well, then let me add on some super squishy hugs, the kind where your feet leave the ground and wiggle back and forth, and some sharing of the cake flavor of your choosing, and a reminder that you’re clearly an incredibly kind person who reaches out to others to be positive and lovely, because you made MY incredibly rough week. :)

I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT I LOVE YOU (and really and truly appreciate you saying this). <3
It’s on SyFy in twelve minutes. I will be live tweeting, if you need to block me over there. (Or join in.) :D
