Hi everybody... Well, my name is Carla and my name on the archives (and TDA) is BitterSweetFlames.

Don't ask how I got any of my usernames as I am Queen of Random. lol

 

Anyway, a little about my HPFF history... I've always loved to read fanfiction because I totally

love Harry Potter and to my way of thinking fanfiction was a way to enjoy more of it. I joined HPFF and TDA around the same time in 2006 and I've not looked back since.

 

I went on a nearly 4 yr. hiatus (so I became inactive in writing in 2009) but it's 2013 and I was in a totally bad place and came back to HPFF and it just made me so happy. And I'm glad to be back just because this site is gorgeous and I hate myself for having left it when I did. The saying "absence makes the heart grow fonder"? 'Tis true. 'Tis very very true.

 

When it comes to writing, fanfic or otherwise I am more comfortable writing shorts so looking at my Author Page here15+ you will see lots of one-shots or short story WIP's but mostly I tend to write one-shots (I think it's my total inability to commit that hinders my novel-writing). The only novel I've ever completed in my entire lifetime are ones for NaNo and well, anything for NaNo is horrendous. At least in my case.

 

So, yes, I would love to talk to all of you. :D Just shoot me any question you might have and I'll be very happy to answer. 

 

Cheers!

 

--Carla

Carla!! I'm here to ask questions...obviously! I was going to do it on my laptop but I cant be bothered... -_-
FIRST! Yay! :D

1. Which character do u enjoy writing? Don't enjoy ?

2. Where did u get the idea for a Hermione/Charlie ship in Wildflowers? It's not a common ship.

3. What about The Perfect Moment? Where did that idea bloom? ( that's about as poetic as I get, bloom)

4. You make banners as well, do u prefer requesting or making your banners?

5. Rose asked me this question and I enjoyed answering it- who would u have tea with (from the hp world) and why?

6. Your favourite Disney character?

I've got to answer your PM! Sorry, Carla! I can't be bothered doing that on my phone!

1. Which character do u enjoy writing? Don't enjoy ?

--- I really like writing most of the women... For example... Hermione, Rose, Victoire, Ginny. They are enjoyable and easy to write. But those I actually LIKE writing are the ones that are interesting like Snape or Sirius but they're harder, really so I love writing them but they're not exactly ENJOYABLE. Get what I mean?
--- As for those I DON'T enjoy I would have to say Harry and Ron. They're just so well-known to us (esp. Harry!) that I don't want to mess them up. I do try but I find it daunting more than anything. :/

 

2. Where did u get the idea for a Hermione/Charlie ship in Wildflowers? It's not a common ship. 

--- Absolutely not common at all! :O But, you see, Charlie the least known of the Weasley brothers was the one that interested me most. He obviously knew how to have fun because he was so good at Quidditch BUT he also seems so very smart and compassionate to understand and genuinely care for dragons and for seeing them as more than just big scary monsters. He's also reckless and full of danger! Dragons in Romania? d'uh. lol And so he appealed to me because of that complexity even if we never got to see much of him. I'm never comfy making an OC and just thought that probably only Hermione would fit him. And I was looking for Charlie/Hermione fics and couldn't find many. I joined the challenge (where there was one thing and that one thing was the catalyst sort of thing that would make the pair fall in love or what have you) and I thought.. perfect time to do a Charlie/Hermione! So I did and it basically wrote itself. Took me a day if I remember correctly. :D
 

3. What about The Perfect Moment? Where did that idea bloom? ( that's about as poetic as I get, bloom)

--- Now this. Well, I don't really know. I think it started with the line where Teddy proposes to Vic? Basically cursing at her? HAHA. That was the first thing that came to mind. It was clear in my head and I had to write the circumstances that would lead to that. Whenever I hear Teddy/Vic I always think they're the most intimate but comfortable pair. I enjoy reading them so why not write them. :D
 

4. You make banners as well, do u prefer requesting or making your banners?

--- Oh, I would on occasion force/coerce/blackmail (haha!) my friends on TDA to make me a banner when I'm in the mood to change them BUT I make my own when I post the story because I cannot stand posting a story without a banner and you can't request one without a validated story, right? :D so it's usual that I would make myself a banner then get ABSOLUTELY sick of it and request for a new one.. That way any story of mine is never without a banner. hehehe. :D
 

5. Rose asked me this question and I enjoyed answering it- who would u have tea with (from the hp world) and why?

--- Oh! LUNA! :O If only to get inside that woman's head. She's endlessly fascinating and I find it so difficult to write her (which, as a note to myself now, must do) so I'd love to have tea with her and maybe gain a deeper understand of her psyche so I could write about her... And, all that aside.. Wouldn't she be just soo much fun! :D The depths of sadness you get from her are coupled with an innocence and joie de vivre that not many people have so, like I just said, she fascinates me. :D *plus, wouldn't you want to see what cooky outfit she would wear to tea? I know I would!*

 

6. Your favourite Disney character?

--- Cinderella from the classics. <3 But, I've always been fascinated by Mulan *and her sheer stubbornness and boyishness remind me of myself from time to time*. But if we're talking ABSOLUTE favorite? Edna Mode from The Incredibles. She's a riot and she's just amazing and for me, that was a GORGEOUS movie but she stole the show. <3 

 

There you have it. :D Thanks for the questions. Curie. ilu.<3

Thanks for the questions! I'm so late, omg. D= Gonna answer anyway. XD

 

 

What is your favorite ship and why?

I've always been a Dramione fan. <3 It was the first ship I read about and the first ship I wrote about so it holds a special place in my heart. I also love Hermione/Severus. :) There's a story there. A long one. lol

 

 

 

Where is your favorite place to write and/or think about a story?

I write in the study where the desktop is. It's quiet here and the computer monitor is huge so I get to write and do other things as well. :) Thinking about a story is different. There's never any specific place. I could be brushing my teeth and an idea springs to my mind. When that happens I take note of it any way I can (Using my phone, tablet, a pen to my palm.lol)

 

 

 

If you could pick only one HP moment to be your favorite (an almost impossible question, I realize), what would it be and why?

This is basically impossible! But I have to say I have so many fave PoA moments. But basically when Harry thinks he can live with Sirius and leave the Dursleys. I wanted that so bad for him. And I just love PoA the most so it's my fave HP moment, lol.

 

 

How long does it generally take you to write a one-shot/single chapter?

Oh, it depends on motivation. I've written a one-shot in one sitting (about two hours) but I've had something that's taken so long like years. So there's never any set time, which is bad. Makes me seem like an undisciplined layabout. XD

 

 

Out of all of the stories you have written, which is your favorite so far?

Fit15+ And just because I've loved reading HG/SS fics for so long but never thought I'd be able to write it. But I did and here it is. :)

Hi Carla!  I've just come from reading one of your stories and thought up a few questions for you!

 

1. What gave you the inspiration for Two: A Perfect Blend?

2. I noticed that you've written quite a few unusual pairings - do you have an OTP?

3. What's your greatest strength in writing?  And your biggest weakness?

4. If you could recommend three stories on the archives, which would they be?

5. You're a brilliant artist!  Do you use graphics to inspire stories, or do stories inspire banners?

6. What's your favourite thing about NaNo?

Hi Sian.:D I swear I saw this as soon as you had posted it but I am such a bad and busy person it did nearly take me a month to answer your questions. Thank you for them though. <

 

 

 

1. What gave you the inspiration for Two: A Perfect Blend?
 
Well, it was written for The Winter Duel 2013 so that was half the idea. As for making it Scorose, I wanted to try a NextGen and I'd just written a Ted/Vic and I've read ScoRose, so I went there. Basically, I thought of two people who I thought would have completely different Xmases to write about and landed with these two (Like, Ted and Vic wouldn't work because their xmas are the same so there's no contrast. lol)
 

 

 

2. I noticed that you've written quite a few unusual pairings - do you have an OTP?

Ah, yes, I love unusual pairings! I started reading Dramione stories 'cos those had always been super interesting to me but as for OTP, I can't say that I have. I'd read/write anything as long as they interest me. :)

 

 

 

3. What's your greatest strength in writing?  And your biggest weakness?
Strength - Well, IDK, but apparently I set great scenes. And I love little details like that so I try my best to get them worked in. :)
Weakness - English is not my first language so, dialogue. I always have the hardest time making sure my dialogue really flows/is realistic because my English is classically learned thru school so I try to watch as many English-speaking shows as possible to help with this. :D
 

 

 

4. If you could recommend three stories on the archives, which would they be?

So many great stories!! I don't know how to choose but some of my faves are: 30 Days of You and Me by Mistress, which is the first ScoRose I ever read! We Are But Strangers by Elysium, who is one of my most fave Dramione writers. And, lastly, Nothing is Perfect by aurevoir, because it's a Dramione but it's Post-War and it's not a romance but it's so fascinating.

 

 

 

5. You're a brilliant artist!  Do you use graphics to inspire stories, or do stories inspire banners?

THANKS! Ah, I've never really made any graphics then thought, oh, I'd love to use this for a story. Usually graphic-making is organic. (i.e. I slap things on a canvas and hope for the best. <3) But, yes, stories inspire banners. I love making banners for stories that I really like. It insires me greatly. I also make banners for my stories because I hate posting them and having them up without a banner on them. Makes me think they're naked. D=

 

 

 

6. What's your favourite thing about NaNo?

 

 NaNo? The torture, the lack of a sleep cycle, the ignored family, the copious amounts of tea? No. <3 The writing. I get to write again. I've missed writing (I haven't done it in nearly a year!) and I'm just so happy to have inspiration back even if 50k words in a month is the basic definition of insanity. :)

 

Thanks for the questions, darling. :) Always a pleasure. <3

Hey, hey, hey lovely! :wub:

 

1. I really liked how in Fit and fall. you explored non-canon pairings, so two questions. 1. why did you choose those pairings specifically?

2. Do you think the writing experience (cheesey word but I can't think of a better phrase) differs for canon pairings and non-canon pairings? And if it does, how does it differ?

3. So I saw you've been writing since 2006, how has Harry Potter fanfiction changed since you started writing?

4. In the whole history of Claws, which Claw is your favourite Claw?

5. What are your favourite types of graphics to make?

6. Finally, you can bring one HP character back to life which one would it be and why?

 

Have fun and Merry Christmas, Carla!  :xchristmastree:

Hi Kiana! Thank you for the lovely questions.< 3 HAPPY CHRISTMAS. :D OK, to answer:
 
1. Ah, in fall. I decided to do Rose/Teddy because I'd already planned to write a story for them a long time ago that never materialized so to make it up to them, I did this. Also, I wanted to explore how it is to fall in love with someone who was nearly family (but isn't) and who already belongs to someone who IS family. As for Snamione, they are my jam. <3 I've always loved Snape and just wanted him to be happy and I've always thought he'd be happy with Hermione. (Besides, I've always had a thing for older men. *coughs*)
 
2. Oh. Well, I think in non-canon pairings the hardest bit is making it believable (impossible, really. -shrugs- haha) but it's FUN because you're being rebel and I LOVE that. I love canon, reading it is fun but writing it bores me, you know? Or might just be me. haha. <3 As for canon pairings, it's comfy. Like settling down with a nice glass of wine after a long day's work. You know you like it but there are elements of different in there as well. :)
 
3. Oh. It was so much fun when the series wasn't over yet! Everything was up in the air (Harmony and Romione shippers were at war. lol) Ah, 
 
4. SO MANY. But I have a soft spot for Luna because she's different and she is OK with that, she's comfortable with that and she's beautiful, inside and out. <3 I just love her (although writing her is horribly difficult and I've never done it. haha)
 
5. It really depends on the day because I rut based on graphic types. So there are icon days, sig days, banner days and CI days (not really a straight answer, yeah?) But I LOVE LOVE making things for other people. <3 It's a fun process and it makes me happeh.
 
6. SNAPE. But since I am still in horrible denial that he's dead (HE IS NOT. -cries-) I will say Remus becase, really, how could all the Marauders be dead? SO NOT FAIR. D=
 
THANKS, Kiana. FUN TO ANSWER those questions. Hard but fun. lols

Hi Carla!

 

1.  Do any of your stories from before your hiatus still exist on the archives?

2.  Do they make you cringe, or are you proud?  (Or a mixture of the two?)

3.  I love your Tedrose one-shot, fall.  Do you ship Tedrose or Tedoire (Teddy/Victoire) more?

4.  Do you write happily ever afters or unhappily never afters more?

5.  I see that you have two longer stories as WIPs.  Which one keeps your attention more?

6.  Do you speak any other languages?

7.  What's your OTP?

8.  Do you have a NOTP (as in, a ship that you can't stand)?

9.  Favorite season?

10. Favorite breed of dog?  (And if you don't like dogs, then cats?)

Hi Carla :bye:

 

So here's the promised MTA-questions. Sorry it took so long, my computer was not cooperating with me. But I'm here now with a couple of questions for you:

 

1) I've read two of your stories; fall and fit. I really liked them both, and found your way of telling the stories to be very unique. So I was wondering how did you go about writing them? What inspired you to tell the stories in the way you do? (like POV, so much description/scenery, and the repetition of the word 'fall' - which by the way I really loved)

 

2) So I never read any Snape/Hermione story before, and I was wondering why you think the two of them could be a good match? I'm not saying I disagree, but I was just wondering since they're not the most common ship.

 

3) Yeah, you can't escape this one; I love your graphic. When I saw all the amazing banners you gave to the 'Banner challenge', I really wanted to enter myself but I knew I wouldn't have had the time to write an entry. So I was wondering where do find the inspiration for your banners? What advice would you give to a potentially new graphic-maker? 

 

4) You and your favourite HP-character has to find and destroy one hocrux for Harry, which one do you destroy?

 

5) This is probably my favourite question. I ask just about everyone this, because I think it's so interesting to see the different answers and the reasoning for it. And I doubt anyone else have asked you this before.

 

You're getting married, and HP-characters play the important roles in the wedding (the eras, ages etc. does not matter when answering this). Which characters have the following roles and why: 

  • Bride or Groom (depending on who you would rather marry)?
  • The Best Man? (keep in mind that whoever this is, he would likely give a speech at some point during the day)
  • The Maid of Honor? (she would probably give a speech as well, that's the custom in my country at least)
  • The Bridesmaids (and/or groomsmen if you want that as well)
  • The Ring-bearer? (you can also include flowergirls, if you want that. This could be an animal, because some people like that)
  • The toastmaster?
  • The Wedding-crasher? (because there's always one in TV-weddings   :p)
  • The Un-invited guest? (different from the wedding-crasher, because they never come to your wedding. Their role is to keep far away from it. And don't go for the boring ones like Voldemort, Pettigrew, Bellatrix etc.)
  • The Photographer?

 

I hope you have fun answering these questions  :)

Thanks for the questions, Mallory! :)
 
1.  Do any of your stories from before your hiatus still exist on the archives?
- Some do. :O
2.  Do they make you cringe, or are you proud?  (Or a mixture of the two?)
- A mixture in that some still make me proud but others make me cringe.
3.  I love your Tedrose one-shot, fall.  Do you ship Tedrose or Tedoire (Teddy/Victoire) more?
- I ship both of them in equal portions but Teddy/Victoire is fluffy, roses and sunshine to me while Tedrose is more angst and feels. So it depends on what my current mood is.
4.  Do you write happily ever afters or unhappily never afters more?
- I like happy endings more. :)
5.  I see that you have two longer stories as WIPs.  Which one keeps your attention more?
- felt keeps my attention more because my beta is a nagging crazy lamp. -grumbles-
6.  Do you speak any other languages?
- English is my second language so, yes, as my first is Filipino. (I also speak very bad Spanish that used to be moderately ok. I just don't get to practice any longer.)
7.  What's your OTP?
- I don't really consider any ship as my OTP, precisely but I do enjoy Dramione and Snamione most of all. :)
8.  Do you have a NOTP (as in, a ship that you can't stand)?
- None, really but I'm not a big fan of canon ships. :)
9.  Favorite season?
- Summer. I'm a sun bunny. ^_^
10. Favorite breed of dog?  (And if you don't like dogs, then cats?)
- Basset Hounds or Labradors. :) I have one of each. ^_^
 
 
Lotte, I promise I will answer your questions soon, THANKS! :)

Um, first of all you need to get rid of that whole only write on shots because that is simply not true anymore.

 

So on to my questions

 

1. Why do so many of your titles have just one word [the real questions]

 

2. Did the Taylor Swift song First really inspire your entire story, or was there something that aided? 

 

3. What is your absolute favorite story you've read? Why?

 

4. What is your least favorite? Why?

 

5. What are your favorite scenes and genre to write?

 

6. What are your least favorite scenes and genre to write? 

 

7. What is one thing you've always wanted to write, but never have?

 

8. Are you happy to have moved on to short stories? 

 

 

I'm asking those hard hitting, journalism style questions ;)

Answering both sets of questions now! Thank you, Lotte and Lamp. <3
 

1) I've read two of your stories; fall and fit. I really liked them both, and found your way of telling the stories to be very unique. So I was wondering how did you go about writing them? What inspired you to tell the stories in the way you do? (like POV, so much description/scenery, and the repetition of the word 'fall' - which by the way I really loved)
-- Well, it's really different. I started fit AGES before I actually finished it... I got inspired by the quote I got for a challenge so I finally managed to finish them. :) As for fall. well it's different. I really really love fall/autumn because it's so pretty and I was always intrigued by the thought that fall could mean so many different things. Again, this was written for a challenge so I worked with it best as I can. :) As for the POV, I just wanted to try first person I suppose and I really LOVE writing about scenery. It's my favorite part of anything. :D I'm really glad you liked it, darling.
 

2) So I never read any Snape/Hermione story before, and I was wondering why you think the two of them could be a good match? I'm not saying I disagree, but I was just wondering since they're not the most common ship.
-- BECAUSE I LOVE SNAPE.. Ehem, sorry. Well, Hermione shares a lot of similiarities to Lily BUT I think she could be more forgiving and open and willing to give Severus a chance. Added to that, they're intellectually compatible and I just always imagined that Hermione would go spare if she wasn't with someone who also excited her intellectually. ^_^
 

3) Yeah, you can't escape this one; I love your graphic. When I saw all the amazing banners you gave to the 'Banner challenge', I really wanted to enter myself but I knew I wouldn't have had the time to write an entry. So I was wondering where do find the inspiration for your banners? What advice would you give to a potentially new graphic-maker?
-- First off, thank you. <3 (btw, the promise of a graphic at ANY TIME still stands so please feel free to pester me about it). I find inspiration from pretties like pretty models/stocks/textures and go about from there. Best advice to anyone new? PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE. If you don't practice, you don't get better.
 

4) You and your favourite HP-character has to find and destroy one hocrux for Harry, which one do you destroy?
OMG. I need to actually choose a favorite character. I don't know who but Imma go with Charlie and I'm pretty sure he'd want us to destroy the cup (or at least get it) because DRAGON.
 

5) This is probably my favourite question. I ask just about everyone this, because I think it's so interesting to see the different answers and the reasoning for it. And I doubt anyone else have asked you this before.
Bride/Groom - Charlie ('cos I don't want to steal from anyone. ;))
The Best Man - Bill (the twins would be disastrous for this one, eh? lols)
The Maid of Honor - HERMIONE. (the darling)
The Bridesmaids - Ginny and Luna (Ron and Percy.lols)
The Ring-bearer - Teddy! (Victoire)
The Toastmaster - SNAPE (BAHAHAHA)
The Wedding-crasher - omg, idk. Lee Jordan
The Un-invited guest - holy hell. IDK. I'd go for Draco. lols
The Photographer - Sirius Black
 
 
Cassie's now:
Will ask for an edit soon. YEAH. <3
 
1. Why do so many of your titles have just one word [the real questions]
-- It's a total coincidence although I need to break myself of this habit. lols
 
 
2. Did the Taylor Swift song First really inspire your entire story, or was there something that aided? 
-- well, the quote was a REAL inspiration. lols but my lamp helped a lot too! :) And my great desire to FINALLY write an OC. :)
 
3. What is your absolute favorite story you've read? Why?
First off, I have been informed that this is *written* and not read. SO. YEAH. CASSIE! -whines- *grumbles*
-- I love fall because it was a different writing style and one of my first ventures to next gen. :) (alternatively, I also love felt because it's one of the first non one-shots that I feel confident I can complete)
 
4. What is your least favorite? Why?
-- Dinner Time. It's just ridiculous. lols
 
5. What are your favorite scenes and genre to write?
-- Scenery ones, really. :) lols Romance and Drama. <3
 
6. What are your least favorite scenes and genre to write? 
-- dialogues; most especially fights. Horror and Comedy.
 
7. What is one thing you've always wanted to write, but never have?
-- A Jily. I've had a plan in my head for the longest time but whenever I start writing the pairing starts to change. lololol (note: The Perfect Moment and Seven were initially Jily's. I KNOW, weird right?)
 
8. Are you happy to have moved on to short stories? 
-- Yes and no. It's just. WOW. -shudders-

OMG CARLA....YOU LIKE SNAPE/HERMIONE??? WE MUST DISCUSS THIS! like i ship them so much and it's so difficult to find ppl who ship them too. 

 

here are a few questions btw and im sorry if they've already been asked...just tell me to bugger off if so :) 

 

1. do you ever compare yourself to other characters or see traits in them that are in yourself??? If so, which characters??

2.  someone asked me this so....i'm stealing it ;) do you find what inspires you to make graphics is the same kind of thing that inspires you to write? 

3. were there any characters you feel were miscast in the film??? Or some where you were like holy heck that is some on point casting?!?! 

4. does every plot bunny you have become a story? How does a story originally form? Like with me I'll get an idea for a chapter or scene and from there a story will emerge...is it the same with you, or not??? 

5. if you could use a time turner or go back/forward in time to see /anything/ in the wizarding world (from founders to next gen) where (or when :creepy:) would you go and why? 

 

 

these questions are terrible, I'm sorry 

 

Bex :)
