30 Days of Fandom Meme Day 02

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

At one point, this would have been such an easy question but now it's not so easy *wry grin*

I'll answer the final part to begin with as that is easy. As I'm sure you've noticed I haven't written anything for quite some time, getting on for four years in fact :-( There are various reasons why I haven't written, one being my hands have suffered so much from decades of crutch usage I can no longer spend more than a minute or two at a time writing, plus sitting for any length of time is harder and constant interrupting the flow isn't good for writing. There is another reason and maybe one day I will write the post I have planned out in my head multiple times explaining it - or maybe not.

Anyway enough of the negative and onto the rest of the question. Statistics, which as many of you may remember I do actually rather enjoy - at least I do when I know what I'm doing and I'm the one creating them *g* And I have just remembered my love of tables/lists/stats from when I was an avid writer was very useful as I have a nifty little tables and lists that answer this question very well. In fact it over answers it *g*).

With the exception of two fandoms (NCIS and Buffyverse) all the other fandoms in which I have written only involve one pairing per fandom. In total I have written 1,564 stories across fifteen fandoms. The least number of stories in a fandom is one, the most is 1,067.

3 – For each of the fandoms from day two, what were your favourite 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.

12 – Have you ever attempted an 'adaptation' fic of a favourite book or movie but set in a different fandom?
13 – Do you prefer canon or fanon when you write? Has writing fanfic for a fandom changed the way you see some or even all of the original source material?
