Gakked from [Bad username or site: @], The Fanfic-Writer's Meme:

1. Which is your favorite fic?

...time for decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse...

I love this one from top to bottom. I genuinely feel that the dialogue is spot-on for my Draco and Pansy (mine, not Rowling's, since I highly doubt she would ever allow Pansy a single line of witty repartee) and everything was portrayed exactly as I wanted it to be. I'm very proud of that one, and it went through countless revisions to polish it up before I posted it.

2. Which is your best-received fic?

Hmn. I suppose that would be Outward Appearances, since I had over 1500 reviews for it before deleted it, and there's more at its various other homes. Lily/James fandom is generous with the feedback. ^_^ On the Draco/Pansy side, Breath in Idleness probably received the most love as a one-shot, but Forgivable Expectations still has a decently sized following even after so much time in hiatus.

3. Which is your worst-received fic?

That would probably be Protege. It actually got "niffled" or recced at FictionAlley, but even the niffler was like, "Yeah, this fic has been ignored by fandom." *FacePalm* But it's to be expected because this one is kind of out there. I was playing around with a lot of vague, dark concepts that made some people go O_o.

4. Which is your angsty-est fic?

Oooh, that one's hard! Everything I write is angsty! I know that Nicole will never forgive me for writing Dimenticata (the ring bit, in particular, upset her). But At the End of the World probably takes the prize. Not only did I throw Pansy into Azkaban but I also gave her agoraphobia and stuck her in the middle of an ongoing battle in an open field. Not to mention that, erm, ending. Definitely my most melodramatic.

5. Which is your funniest fic?

Overall, none of my fics are comedic. XD Maybe Breath in Idleness for domestic confusion?

6. Smuttiest?

Time for Decisions again. That one contains the most graphic sex scene I've ever written. Yup. Though, A Woman, but No Angel has a somewhat-graphic sex scene, too, between Lily and James towards the end.

7. Fluffiest?

Breath in Idleness. No one dies! Or has psychological trauma! That's fluffy, right?

8. Have you ever made someone cry with a fic?

Frequently. XD

9. Which fic frustrates you the most?

Outward Appearances. I have such a love-hate relationship with it that usually tips more towards hate, but it was my earliest and most popular fic ever so that means something. I'm actually pretty proud of the second half of it, but it's that horrible (and now cliched) premise that makes up the first half that tortures me in the night.

10. Which fic was the most fun to write?

Overall? None. Writing for me is like giving birth. It's all pain and mess until the final product is out and then I get to bask in the creation later.

11. Who is your favorite OC you've ever created?

Arabella in OA. I love that character so much that she keeps popping up in various incarnations in my original work. She was so fun and interesting, plus she had all of those witty quips to foil Lily that were tons of fun to write. I liked Mundungus, too (who does not resembles that actual Mundungus Fletcher in any way, but I did write him two years before Book 5 came out).

12. Are you better at one-shot or mulit-part?

One-shots. Clearly, since it takes me lifetimes to update my multi-parts.

13. What character do you think you're the best at portraying?

Pansy, obviously, since she stars in all but three of my completed fics (and a few uncompleted ones, too); however, I've gotten too set into writing her, so it's been a challenge writing my current heroine (who is nothing like Pansy).

14. What character(s) is the most difficult to portray?

Crabbe and Goyle. They usually get the shaft in my fics and not because I dislike them (Well, Crabbe's getting the stink eye after Book 7, but I digress), but because it's difficult to work with Rowling's two-dimensional characters. Make Crabbe and Goyle too intelligent and they're OOC. Make them too stupid and shallow and you're just feeding into Rowling's bullshit black-and-white portrayal. It's hard to find a satisfying balance.

So, starvinbohemian, your LiveJournal reveals...

You are... 0% unique and 4% herdlike
(partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy techno).
When it comes to friends you are popular. In terms of the way you relate to people, you are keen to please.

Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is conventional.

Your overall weirdness is: 31

(The average level of weirdness is: 27.
You are weirder than 69% of other LJers.)

Find out what your weirdness level is!

Te-cccchhnooo? Um. Yes. I do like techno. *Is confused as to where the hell that came from* And when they say "conventional," I'm going to pretend that means "gorgeous diction and smooth prose."

EDIT: Why the hell is my "weirdness level" so much higher than everyone else's?? Pfft.
