Days 3 through 8 because i wasn't online.

3. How do you come up with names, for char­ac­ters (and for places if you’re writ­ing about fic­tional places)?

Well, when i was younger, i used my name, and my friends names and such.Then i started using random names, now i ask for help.

4. Tell us about one of your first stories/characters!

I think the earliest story (I will admit to) Is my school of rock fan fiction.

5. By age, who is your youngest char­ac­ter? Old­est? How about “youngest” and “old­est” in terms of when you cre­ated them?

Hmmm, i think that Saxon, a suicidal boy in my first big main Fic is my youngest orginal character, the Oldest would be Gloria, a woman who is in the same fic as an evil orphanage owner. The oldest in terms of created would be the one of my self inserts (yes, i did those.) and my youngest would be ... I'm not exactly sure, since i jump between stories a lot.

6. Where are you most com­fort­able writ­ing? At what time of day? Com­puter or good ol’ pen and paper?

At home, in bed, at night on my laptop

7. Do you lis­ten to music while you write? What kind? Are there any songs you like to relate/apply to your char­ac­ters?

I just usually have something in the background, though i find musicals get me going quicker.

8. What’s your favorite genre to write? To read?

Superhero/Sci-fi/Supernatural stuff

Day Two

2. How many char­ac­ters do you have? Do you pre­fer males or females?

Well... if i count these out....

Goddess's Angel:
-Josh Macclay - male

Big Bang:
- Cyrus Kelley - male
- Lila - female
- Jason - male
- Andrew - male
- Craig - male
- Sarah - female
- Simon - male

Other Big bang fic:
- Justin Davidson - male
- Dave - Male
- Gloria - female
- Fredrick - male
- Rocky - male
- Saxon - male
- Luke - male

So all together three females and 12 males. I think you can see which is my favourite.

Day One

1. Tell us about your favorite writ­ing project/universe that you’ve worked with and why.

It's tough to choose, but i'd have to say either the Buffyverse or the Whoniverse. I do a whole load of crossovers though, so i like putting characters from one universe (For example the Buffyverse, where you kill monsters to survive) into another universe (Say, the marvel universe where you never kill people as a good guy, and nobody ever stays dead.)

I like the Buffyverse because i love the characters, the same for the Whoniverse. I love the Whoniverse a little bit more because it's so easy to make it into a crossover.

11. summer


Kind of a follow on from 10. Spring

11. Summer

It was the middle of Summer, and it was a boiling hot day. Clyde and Rani were spending most of the day was watching Sarah Jane inflate a pool in the back garden, and then helped her fill it with water. Clyde didn't ask about Luke because ...well, THAT would be way too obvious. He got a little bored waiting with Rani for the pool to fill, and they ended up having a massive water fight all over the law, with Sarah Jane looking on half annoyed and half amused.

Finally, about an hour later, the pool was almost completely filled. And Clyde was not exactly sure that the pool was of a earthly nature, as the sides were solid, and despite the fact it barely reached his knee, he could stand in it, and it reached his neck. When he tried to ask, Sarah Jane just smiled enigmatically and ushered him into the pool, that seemed to be growing outwards as well, until took up most of the back lawn.

Clyde was swimming around, enjoying himself, whilst Rani and Sarah Jane sat chatting at the pool side, with fresh made lemonade.

And that was when Luke walked out wearing next to nothing. Clyde stopped in mid movement, and spluttered as his head slid under the water. Luke looked very uncomfortable in the tiny white speedo thing he was wearing, and Rani and Clyde looked … almost predatory.

He was almost wanting to call off the whole thing, go inside and never look outside of his room again. It was too late though, as Clyde jumped out of the pool and pulling Luke into the pool with him. Luke let out a very girly scream as he hit the water, Which made Rani and Sarah Jane giggle a little to themselves.

Luke and Clyde quickly started messing around, and apart from the occasional 'accidental' brushes, Luke pretty much forgot what he was wearing. Finally Sarah Jane decided that everyone should come inside, and Luke jumped out of the pool, only to hear a gasp.

He swung around to see the pool, and the almost tiny scrap of white material that was supposed to be a swimming costume floating next to a very happy looking Clyde who winked at him and look him up and down.

10. Spring




10. Spring.


Spring sucks” Clyde casually announced one morning, sat in Luke's bedroom. Luke didn't react at first, instead defeating the last few enemies on the level of the game he was playing, and then putting it aside. He crossed his legs and sat with his back against the headboard. Clyde took this as a sign he should continue on his rant about how spring sucked. “See, it's not really as warm as summer, but there's no snow like winter. And there's always a load of … well, insects and spiders and bee's that appear from nowhere.”

Luke frowned, but nodded, as if he agreed. “Okay... so what season do you like?” He asked.

Clyde thought for a moment. “Definitely … Summer I think.” Clyde said smiling at some memory that the Luke couldn't know, without asking. But Clyde didn't seem to like being interrupted by people in mid-thought, so he left Clyde to his thoughts. Finally Clyde stopped to explain exactly why summer. “Have you ever had that Summer, where you spend every day with your friends? And everyone wearing pretty much nothing, and you can just sit and watch people whilst eating ice cream, and you somehow manage to enjoy even the rainiest, wettest days.”

Luke grinned widely. He couldn't wait till Summer then, now that he knew what Clyde liked about Summer, he could play into the little fantasy that Clyde had.

Writer's Block: Single pride day

Given that we're less than a week out from Valentines, how do you feel about the approaching holiday? Will you participate or abstain? If you're not in a relationship, how will you celebrate your single status?

Urgh, well, since i'm not in any sort of relationships, i'm probably going to give people valentine cards... in fact, one of the people i have a crush on? I'm planning on slipping a card into their bag, when they don't know... without my name.

you are steelblue

Your dominant hues are cyan and blue. You like people and enjoy making friends. You're conservative and like to make sure things make sense before you step into them, especially in relationships. You are curious but respected for your opinions by people who you sometimes wouldn't even suspect.

Your saturation level is medium - You're not the most decisive go-getter, but you can get a job done when it's required of you. You probably don't think the world can change for you and don't want to spend too much effort trying to force it.

Your outlook on life is brighter than most people's. You like the idea of influencing things for the better and find hope in situations where others might give up. You're not exactly a bouncy sunshine but things in your world generally look up.

ssquirel_fic gave me: Mirrors

I interpreted that as an alternate universe accessable only through mirrors. So...

In a small town, in pretty much the most secluded part of britain, a strange experiment has taken place. It was supposedly a complete failure, except it isn't, randomly people start to go missing in the town. Also there are reports are that people are going insane, seeing there faces being completely different. Then, someone appears with news of a different world.

No one believes him, despite clames that something is moving between the realities, following the 'signal'. A group of teenagers join together with this man from another universe as they discover the ability to slip through mirrors into an almost exact copy of there planet only a few months into the future, and completely devoid of life.

The Outsider:
Born on the other world, he has seen much hardship as he appears to be the only one who survived the decimation of earth unchanged. However he has been changed, as he is criss-crossed with scars along his back will attest to. He also seems to be holding something back.

The Team:

Born in the town, he has never noticed anything strange about town. His father was a major person in the experiment, and was one of the first to be driven insane. He was on the verge of following his father until he found a purpose in stopping the whole thing. His mirror image has not been revealed so far, but it is thought to be so horrific that he can't look in the mirror.

The main female:
She's new to the town, and is very sure that she wants to leave as soon as she can. The main reason she hangs around is her crush on the Outsider.
