Well hello there twin! :D I have a few questions for you!

1. How do you make sure you stick to your list and not give in to anything else like Tharry love?

2. How long do you like to make your chapters?

3. Is there anything that you won't write?

4. Is there anything you want to write but haven't?

5. How do you feed that wonderful brain of yours so it thinks of all these amazing ideas?

6. Is there any stories you've written that you're not too fond of?

7. What is the best song/band for inspiration?

Here you are! I'll think of more questions soon. :D

TWIN! HELLO!

1. How do you make sure you stick to your list and not give in to anything else like Tharry love?
I write what I need to while planing others. That way I know what will happen when the time comes to write love like Tharry, But still will have written what I need to from my list - the list is what gets posted. This seem to help me. :)

2. How long do you like to make your chapters?
I don't set any sort of guide when I write - I put chapter outlines at the top and I write what goes in it, flesh it out as I go, then edit. I can't force a length, sometimes they're short, lots of times they're long chapters. But I always feel good about them when they're done.

3. Is there anything that you won't write?
There is nothing that I won't attempt to write, but there are things that I don't know if I can write. Characters mostly, like Snape. I just don't know if I could get him right. It all depends on what ideas I get.

4. Is there anything you want to write but haven't?
I want to write a lot of things - I have historical fics and eras like Founders that I've always wanted to do. Minor Post-Hogwarts, such as my Pansy Parkinson/Marcus Flint. Maybe one day I'll get to them.

5. How do you feed that wonderful brain of yours so it thinks of all these amazing ideas?
I do a lot of thinking. :p I know all sorts about my characters and what goes into my headcanon, sometimes they become ideas for stories and sometimes those ideas are written. Most of the time, they either stay as ideas or no one ever knows those things.

6. Is there any stories you've written that you're not too fond of?
A few years ago, I bunched a load of cliches together, put them with Dramione and wrote it. It's on another site, has a lot of reads and reviews saying they love it, but I hate it. I only wrote it because I wanted to know what would happen - now I know. :p It'll never be posted here. I like the stories I've posted here, even the Dramiones.

7. What is the best song/band for inspiration?
That all depends on my mood or what I'm writing or if a specific song serves as inspiration for a certain scene/character - like, for Oliver Ford in Stuck, I'll listen to Imagine Dragons. For Marauders, I'll listen to Uprising by Muse. I have a lot of playlists. Music is always on. :D

Thank you so much for your questions!!!

Sam.

Hellooo, Sam! I've a few questions for you, if you don't mind...

 

1 - You put an enormous amount of thought into your original characters. So much so, it seems, that sometimes it spills over the sides of your stories and ends up on Twitter. ;) Give us a glimpse into your process for creating and developing a new character. How much of it is background work you do in advance and how much grows organically as you write?

 

2 - Along the same lines as your original characters, you have a tendency to take very minor characters from the books -- your boy Theo immediately comes to mind -- and build them up into iconic figures in Sam's Universe. Do you have any such characters that you haven't written yet, but you're planning to?

 

3 - The body of work you've posted to the archives is simply massive. Out of all of those stories, what is the one chapter (or one-shot story) that you're most proud of and why?

 

4 - On the flip side of the coin, did you ever have an idea that sounded awesome in your head but you just couldn't get it to come together in written form?

 

5 - After Deathly Hallows came out, JKR revealed that Dumbledore was in love with Gellert Grendelwald. Do you think the fact that she never explicitly tackled the issue of gay and lesbian characters in the text of the books was a good decision or a missed opportunity?

 

6 - Someday when you're a famous author -- don't forget that you know me, OK? :p -- you run into JKR at some fancy cocktail party for brilliant, wealthy, creative people. What are the first three questions that you will ask her?

 

Thanks!

Hey, Dan! I was so excited when I saw you had posted questions!

 

1 - You put an enormous amount of thought into your original characters. So much so, it seems, that sometimes it spills over the sides of your stories and ends up on Twitter.  ;) Give us a glimpse into your process for creating and developing a new character. How much of it is background work you do in advance and how much grows organically as you write?

 

Haha, yeah, I haven't put headcanon facts onto Twitter for a while now... maybe I should. :p Er... It's not that big a process, I must admit. I'm not even aware of how much thought has gone into a character until later - when I have a new story and there's OCs in it, I start with a basic outline; looks personality, stuff like that. Then I go to the bigger stuff, like childhood, family and friends. Enough to be able to write them and not wonder about if they're realistic and such. The rest, grow as I write;it's something that either comes to mind because of the plot and I think it works or it doesn't but it fits the character as a whole. (Examples: I always knew about Kieron's gifts; he originally wasn't going to accept his blame in what happened as a child and think about forgiving Daphne, just tell Alexa what happened. Xavier wasn't meant to have such a big role in Silver Linings. And Chris is Jewish.)

 

2 - Along the same lines as your original characters, you have a tendency to take very minor characters from the books -- your boy Theo immediately comes to mind -- and build them up into iconic figures in Sam's Universe. Do you have any such characters that you haven't written yet, but you're planning to?

 

Sam's Universe; I like that. Yes. I've written a one-shot about him, just to try it, but I'm gonna include him anyway - Regulus Black. I have so much about Regulus Black, sometimes I just feel like I have to write it down. I look forward to one day getting round to this novel; it's not just about him, it's Dorcas Meadowes, too, (another minor character I want to write) and why they came to do what they did and why it got them killed. It's very exciting. There's also James Potter, I have stuff about him. And from Hogwarts era, A pansy Parkinson/Marcus Flint novel in my plans that I'm quite excited about. I'm sure there's more (like a Draco/Astoria, or two), but these are my big ones, I think. :)

 

3 - The body of work you've posted to the archives is simply massive. Out of all of those stories, what is the one chapter (or one-shot story) that you're most proud of and why?

 

Okay, I'm looking through my page now... most of them is from my old account, I added them when I had to make a new account, or there probably wouldn't be so many :p... Okay, this is a list of three. First, the labor chapter in Silver Linings (M), because it was scary to write, having not been in a situation like that at all, and I didn't know if it was going to be good or bad or what and I admit I freaked myself a little wondering where it was going. Second, my little Fred one-shot, Forever Young (15+), about the second war and Fred's last moments; I'd never written about Fred or in second person before and it was for a challenge, so I challenged myself. It was fun and sad and I love it. Third, my Harry/Ginny, So the Saying Goes (15+); this wouldn't be on the list if it had been in Harry's PoV, i know Harry, Harry is good to me, but Ginny was new and I didn't know if I could write her well. But I was very happy when it was finished. So, one of those, I think.

 

4 - On the flip side of the coin, did you ever have an idea that sounded awesome in your head but you just couldn't get it to come together in written form?

 

Albus/Gellert. But I refuse to give up; it will be posted one day... maybe. Oh, and I have a couple of old Hogwarts/Post-Hogwarts stories on my computer that will never see the light of day because they won't work for me. 

 

5 - After Deathly Hallows came out, JKR revealed that Dumbledore was in love with Gellert Grendelwald. Do you think the fact that she never explicitly tackled the issue of gay and lesbian characters in the text of the books was a good decision or a missed opportunity?

 

Honestly, I never really thought about it. I was still young when it all came out, so it didn't bother me at the time. Now if I think about it, I think it would have been a missed opportunity if it had come up at all as part of the story. If Dumbledore had told Harry about his relationship with Grindelwald or if Harry had picked up on anything in the relationship he read about that implied Dumbledore's feelings, but he either didn't or didn't comment on it. Book 7 is about the Hallows, the Horcruxes and the war and they're all from Harry's PoV, so the only relationships you come across are the main ones (Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione) and what he sees (Arthur/Molly, Remus/Tonks), and I don't know if JKR would have been able to bring about issues with gay and lesbian characters without making it feel forced. I think hearing about it later as background information was better, but that's a personal thing because I like the background information. :)

 

I know some fans were shocked when it came out and thought that it should have been stated in the book if it was true, but that wasn't what the book was about and I'm okay with it not being in there. And hey, there could be more, that's why I'm here. :p

 

6 - Someday when you're a famous author -- don't forget that you know me, OK?  :p -- you run into JKR at some fancy cocktail party for brilliant, wealthy, creative people. What are the first three questions that you will ask her?

 

Haha, I'd never forget that. Well, my first question would probably have to be, how did a little person like me get to be invited to a party full of brilliant, wealthy, creative people? 

 

Er... *thinks* ...If I met JKR, my questions would have to be - 

1. In light of the recent Ron/Hermione article, and the potential missed opportunity of slash, is there anything she does regret writing, or at least, does she wish she could add or change anything, even if it's just a small detail?

2. Did she ever dream that Harry Potter might one day be so big, both book and movie wise?

3. What's her process in creating her characters?

 

Thank you so much for your questions, Dan! :D

Hi Sam! :) 

 

1. You update so often and have so many stories. Is it challenging balancing so many at once? Do you have any tips for managing many different plots and characters? 

2. How much of yourself do you put into your main characters? Is there one especially who is very similar to yourself? 

3. In Enchanted, Ciaran's blindness is so vividly written. Was it difficult writing a novel without using descriptions of sight? What were the main challenges with this? 

4. You mentioned that you want to be a screenwriter. How does writing script differ from prose, and what is your favourite thing about it? 

5. If you could meet one of the supernatural creatures that were listed in your supernatural creatures challenge, which one would you pick and why?

6. What is your favourite thing about HPFF?

Hey! Sorry I'm so behind with answering you all, life got hectic and I forgot to check here. Oops. Anyway...

Sophie:

1) I know you and Tammi both have a love of Theodore Nott and tend to write him a lot, but what's the appeal with writing him? Why the former Slytherin?
Well, I wrote a blog during the house cup that mentioned my love for Theo if you wanna check it out. Basically, he's me on the outside - you only see bits of him through Harry's eyes and he's cast as the loner, the guy in the corner who you don't talk to and know nothing about. That is me, I'm the loner in the corner and people only have these little opinions about me. However, if they got to know me they'd see that I'm loud and annoying and a little crazy and I think that for Theo. There's a whole side to him that no one knows and it was fun to explore. Now I have a whole headcanon about him and that's just made him even more fun (and a little sad) to write. Tammi, well I know she said she loved how I wrote Theo and wants to read more about him and his family. But whether or not she loved him before is something we'll have to ask her. :)

2) What made you to decide to Write Silver Linings?
There was a challenge - Mothers in the Making 2 - and I entered it, wanting to try something different. I don't tend to read or write teenage pregnancy because it can be so overdone and cliche and has plots that I don't think make sense for the situation or should be write (which isn't a judgement to all of them, just a personal opinion of some I've found over the years that have kind of put me off). But I saw the challenge and I wanted to try and be different. I picked Albus because he's my worrier, he's obsessive compulsive and controlling, his life has got to go how he wants it, so this was going to be an obsticle for him. Alexa came to be because of my love for Theo - she's not as crazy as her dad, but there's enough of him in there that this wasn't going to be easy for her either (plus I'm a Theo/Harry fan and if I can't have them why not put their kids together :p). And I wanted both sides of the story, on a personal level - to really get into their heads. Which is why the chapters are set out as they are. The rest of the story kind of went from there, deviating from my headcanon a little.

3) Out of the variety of characters you have written, if you could hang out with one for a day who would it be?
If I could hang out with just one character for the day, it would have to be Albus I think. He's just so interesting and a little bad when he wants to be. I can see it being a fun day. :p

4) 61 stories! That's a major achievement how do you manage to keep up with all the WIP's and treat your stories fairly?
72 now. Weird. I have a list on my iPad, it tells me what chapter I'm up to and how many chapters stories have left (if I've planned them all). I finish them one at a time and I can't post anything new until so many have been completed (challenges like the recent Gift It one and one-shots not included). That's about as fair as I can be, thought it sadly means that many won't be updated in a while.

5) Before you create your little world, did you plan to use OC's from certain stories in your other stories?
Not before I created it, at least not intentionally. I'd have an idea and run with it, then another would come along and I couldn't help but think of the first idea and where those characters would be. Eventually the world in my head came together and so did all my headcanon. Now the majority of my stories (the recent ones) are linked in some way.

6) Is your little world, similar to Tammi's (or Tammi's similar to yours) as I've spotted Alexa and Keiron Nott and Nikolas Demarcus (from Silver Linings) in I'll Love Her Enough For The Both Of Us?
For the most part, my world and Tammi's are different. We have different ideas about who does what and things go in different ways. Mostly it's characters that we share - like Alexa and Kieron Nott are mine, but Tammi uses them and has them as Theo's but they have an entirely different backstory and family. Same for me with Nikolos Demarcus (who isn't in Silver Linings, Nicky Weasley - Dominique - is, though he is in the sequel). Some parts, like magic or pairings or a bit of headcanon will be the same (for example, we both wrote Nikolos as going down a destructive path that he eventually tries to escape from, but we both give him different reasons and he does different things). We also talk about our headcanons a lot, so we've added to and changed each other's. It's fun. :D

7) Any news on the Silver Linings Sequel?
I have posted it since you asked this question. I hope you'll continue to like it.

8) I've noticed you tend to write a lot of slash, is there a reason behind it?
The reason I first started to write slash was because of this book I read and I absolutely loved the pairing. But the reason it's grown into something I do regularly is because there isn't a lot of it here. People find it uncomfortable or too different and that's okay, but I like to kind of show that it isn't. It's just a part of life. And it's part of my headcanon now, so it isn't going anywhere. :D

Thank you for the questions!

harrypotterlover1:

1. Ok, I have to ask you about your stories all being connected I haven't seen anyone else do this! I was wondering if there was a connection in how many stories you have up and all of them being connected? Does it motivate you more?
I'm not the only one, or I'm not anymore - alicia and anne writes really cool stories that are connected, too. I did it because I'd created this world and headcanon and I felt like I was adding to it and it felt better in a way. Not all of them are connected, but it is fun to do - to show life in the Harry Potter world as a world that you can step into no matter which story you read. It doesn't motivate any more than usual. My hyperactive imagination does that.

2. Why do you like Slytherin so much! What's the appeal and have you always considered yourself a Slytherin?
Slytherin are very misunderstood. We're the ambitious ones who are willing to do whatever is necessary to get what we want, which some people view as a bad thing. But we're not all bad, we just prefer to stick together. We understand each other. Yes, I've always considered myself a Slytherin - I have a blog posted that explains why. :)

3. Out of all your stories which one do not like? Which one have you put the most effort in to? and which one would you publish if you could?
I don't like my earlier ones, the Dramiones. I don't have anything against the pairing, though it isn't one I read often anymore, it was just when I was trying different things and working with different cliches and they're just bad and OOC and I keep them because it shows how I've grown as a writer, but I still feel weird when people read them and review and say they like them. There's one on a different site that I wrote as I dare to myself and that one just freaks me out when people like it. I put the most effort into Enchanted, my Louis/OC. It's the first novel I finished and the longest story I have. It involves a lot of issues, such as sexuality and relationships and finding yourself and is focused on a blind OC. That was a big challenge for me and I like to thing I pulled it off well. So that would be the one I'd publish if I could. I've actually thought about re-writing it as OF, but can't quite bring myself to unless I make it - more or less - completely different, because I don't ever wanna take Enchanted down.

4. What's your writing schedule like?
My writing schedule is crazy. I write when the mood strikes (though sometimes I make myself). But when I do write, I write a lot, which is good.

5. What means more to you reviews or reads?
Reviews. I don't swarm the review threads or ask for swaps and I rarely use the tag. So most of mine are random reviews or from regular readers I've built up during my time here. I don't want reviews for the sake of reviews. But, as much as I love to see the read number go up, reviews are what help me critique and develop my writing. I wouldn't be where I am today without the awesome people who have ever left me a review. So I won't badger people for any just so I have them, but I do consider them important and value them a lot.

Thank you!

Taylor:

1. I've just recently read Forever Young. Where did you get the inspiration to write Fred how you did?
I got Fred and the fear of growing old in a challenge. I got an idea to use the final battle as soon as I saw it. The rest of the story just grew from there.

2. Which genre is your favorite to write?
Horror/Dark. I'll write anything, but I just love scaring people and freaking them out and there's so many ways I can go. I can't even feel guilty because if a reader is scared, I've done my job. I also like angst, for a similar reason. If I get a review or a comment saying something I've written has made them cry (but they enjoyed the story) I smile. :D

3. I swear, you're always updating your stories. How do you make time to write so frequently?
I don't know how to make time. Though sometimes I sit myself down and make myself, I generally write when the mood strikes. But when I do write, I write loads so I have stuff to post, which helps.

4. How do you keep your stories organized? Do you plan everything out in advance, or let it fall into place?
I keep to a list with an order of what to work on. Then that story has chapter outlines. Nothing detailed, I never stick to that because I let the story sort of take charge on its own, but I know all the important points in a story and where they go.

5. You have a TON of characters, Which one's your favorite to write?
Oooh, that's a hard one. But I'll have to say Theo Nott, I think. He's so different to everyone else, very complex and warped. But he's fun with Harry.

6. Are there any characters or stories that you find harder to write than others?
I was recently complimented on the way I write romance, which was huge for me because I just don't know how to do that compared to horror or angst. I've yet to write Snape as more than a cameo because I find him difficult. Maybe one day I'll be brave enough.

Thank you!

Jenna:

1. You update so often and have so many stories. Is it challenging balancing so many at once? Do you have any tips for managing many different plots and characters?
It was difficult at first. Now I have a list and a sort of schedule that says what to write and complete and I can't post anything new until a certain number is done (one-shots not included). Right now, I'm completing one story at a time, which makes things easier even though I get a little sad because there are stories that won't be updated for a while. But when I do need to work on more than one at once, I find it easer to manage if the stories are very different - plot wise or character or era, if one is nothing like the other it's hard to get confused.

2. How much of yourself do you put into your main characters? Is there one especially who is very similar to yourself?
I may put a little quirk or like/dislike in a character that I have, but most of them are so different to me. Voice is probably a little more like me, I have a very dry sense of humor and sometimes that shows no matter who I write at the time. I have to say that Theo Nott is the one most like me, but I thought he always was before I started writing him. His life is very different to mine, but he was easy to get into because of the things that are similar to me, which makes him easy to write.

3. In Enchanted, Ciaran's blindness is so vividly written. Was it difficult writing a novel without using descriptions of sight? What were the main challenges with this?
Thank you! It was at first. I had to change the way I see the world because he couldn't see it at all. But once I got into that mindset, the rest was quite easy. The main challenge was the beginning, thinking as Ciaran did and remembering that he wouldn't be able to see what was happening in a particular scene, so figuring out how he would go about things.

4. You mentioned that you want to be a screenwriter. How does writing script differ from prose, and what is your favourite thing about it?
With prose, you can be descriptive, you can get into the mind of a character, share their thoughts and fears and all that stuff. With screenplays, it's all dialogue and action; you can only write what the audience will see on the screen and you have to develop a story and characters just with that. That's really hard to get into at first, especially if you've been writing prose for most of your life. But once you get that down and you know how to present a script, it's very easy and very cool. My favorite thing about writing screenplays is, well, all of it. Writing it down as a script. I'm a very visual person and being able to picture the scene in my head and being able to write what I see and hear rather than thinking about the detail you have in prose is great. :D

5. If you could meet one of the supernatural creatures that were listed in your supernatural creatures challenge, which one would you pick and why?
Hmm... the crossroads demon, I think. I wanna know what they'd try and offer me for my soul. :p

6. What is your favourite thing about HPFF?
The community. Everyone here is so nice and awesome on here. My bestest friends in the world are on this site and I don't know where I'd be or what my writing would be like without them.

Thank you!

1. What brought you to HPFF, and then into writing FF?
I was writing FF first on a different site. Not Harry Potter, but different things because I hadn't written OF in a while and I wanted to start small. Then a year after that, when I was no longer writing those FFs but reading different things, including Harry Potter, I found HPFF on google. The rest, as they say, is history. I've never left.

2. You write some amazing stories. What do you find inspiration in?
Thank you! Mostly music, books and TV/film, I don't really do much else. But it can be anything - a line in a book or something a person says near me. I have a very active imagination, so it doesn't take much. :p

3. If you were to play Qudditch, what position would you play?
I think a Chaser. My hand-eye coordination is so non-existent that being a Keeper or a Beater probably wouldn't work. And while needing glasses didn't stop Harry, so wouldn't stop me, I hate heights too much to even imagine being a Seeker. That snitch can fly anywhere and I don't like it. Haha!

4. What story of yours was your fave to write?
I don't know if I have an absolute favorite, but my Albus/OC, Silver Linings, is definitely one of them. It was just so different for me and I love the characters so much.

5. Do you have any new plot bunnys forming?
Many. I won't bore you by talking about them all, or spoil ones you might read, but I will say that I'm very excited about some of them. ;)

Thank you!

Olivia:

You have 68 stories up on the archive right now. Is it hard coming up with so many ideas?
72 now. Weird, right? Is it hard to come up with them? No. I get loads of ideas every day, many of which are incorporated into existing stories somehow because I can't write them all. It is hard to balance them all, though. Now I'm completing one at a time.

What's your all-time favourite story on the archive?
My all time favorite story on this site is Conspiracy of Blood by CambAngst. Oh, my God, it is amazing. I read and reviewed it in, like, a couple of days because I just couldn't put it down. And I'm so ready to re-read it. Dan is brilliant at writing the big, main canon characters. :D

Thank you so much for leaving questions!
