INTERVIEW # 29
Original poster: snarrymod
Your Name: Eeyore9990
Your Team: Team Angst!!!
1. What made you decide to agree to compete in these games?
Umm, I begged and pleaded until someone put my name on a list and then I bribed the hat from which my name was pulled. The hats like chocolate, did you know? But I really wanted to write for it, mostly just to see if I can.
2. Why did you choose the Angst Team?
With this couple (Snarry) it’s almost impossible to write their relationship and keep them In Character without there being a large element of Angst, so… *shrugs*
3. Have you always been interested in the Severus Snape/Harry Potter dynamic?
Oh, yes. I love playing with all the characters, but Snarry is one of my all time favorite pairings besides Bill/Neville.
4. What is more challenging to you – working WITH strict canon or working AROUND strict canon?
LOL! We write slash… until JKR decides to write slash, we’ll always be writing AROUND canon. But I love to add elements of canon to my writing. I think in a way it IS more challenging, because so many other authors do the same, that to make yours stand out, you have to really come up with something original.
5. What motivates you?
Nekkid men. *weg* Actually, a variety of things motivate me. My muse is a fickle thing and can’t be kept on any sort of track, which is why I write all over the fandom (and sometimes outside of it).
6. Do you have plans for (or are you already writing) original fiction?
Yes, I’m currently working on three books. Two historical romance novels set in the same series, and one… umm… anti-vampire novel? Not sure how to classify that one. It’s sort of crack fic, a way for me to take a swipe at all the vampire novels on the shelves these days.
7. What three things are necessary for you to enjoy a story you are reading?
First and foremost, it must be beta’d. I cannot stress that enough. And I don’t care WHO you are, everyone needs a beta. Second, I like to read stories that can capture my emotions. If I want to read a sex scene that sounds like it came out of a Human Relations book… I’ll go get a Human Relations book. Third, hmm, I suppose originality. Three things it can’t have: Harry/Hermione/Draco/Ron/Anyone really starting a band, any of the previously mentioned getting an OMG You look so KEWL makeover, or any of the previously mentioned doing anything that would land them on an episode of Beverly Hills 90210.
8. What are your Top 5 favourite fanfiction stories?
Shiver series by knightmare_shad, A Year Like None Other by aspenlight, White Silk by vlredreign, Freedom by knightmare_shad, and So Far Away by Gwenling (not sure if she has an lj, I read this on www.cipher-wotr.com)
9. Do you have a story (any fandom) you’ve done that you are most proud of? Would you link it here for us?
Probably the one I’m most proud of right now is Lessons in Living.
10. Are you excited about the Games?
I squeed all over the place when I found out I made the team. Now, I’m so nervous the butterflies are trying to fly out my mouth! There is some serious talent on these teams!!
Thank you, eeyore9990!
