CHAMPION INTERVIEW # 45, Dacro!
Original poster: snarrymod
We still have a couple Champion Interviews to post for you. If you want to learn more about any author in these Games, please check them out!
Your Name: dacro
Your Team: Team Wartime (although I started as a Post-War alternate)
(Mod note: You can find dacro's Wartime entry to this year's games here.)
1. What made you decide to join the 2007 Snarry Games?
A Little birdie?
Well, I've been drifting in my little raft toward the Snarry ship for a good long while now, and figured this was a fine opportunity to climb on board and try out the deck assigned to the Alternates, since I had read and enjoyed the entries from last year. However, when a spot in the Games became available, I quickly found myself in the thick of things.
2. Which Harry Potter character is your favourite to write? To read? (any POV)
For writing, I adore Draco and Snape to an unhealthy degree, although Harry seems to make an appearance in nearly every fic. For reading, I'm game for anything with strong characterisation. But since we're talking favourites, I confess to loving H/D, Snarry, and pretty much any Slytherin/Gryffindor interaction. For individual characters, I find Dumbledore fascinating, but I don't like to pair him with anyone, Minerva and I have a secret connection, and I have a big heart for Neville and Oliver Wood. Also, nothing's better than reading a really well-written fic starring Fred and George. *nods*
3.What brought Snarry to your attention? Was it a specific event/fic/picture?
You know, I believe it wasn't until jadarene mentioned to me that accioslash had been looking for authors to write Snarry mpregs from some bunnies she'd come up with. I'd seen the pairing in passing, and I think I might have even have written a Snarry drabble for someone, but I'd never given them too much thought before that. Once I said "Sure, I'll write you a Snape/Harry jealousy Mpreg!", I bounced all over the place reading all the Snarry I could find.
4. What is your stance on "Quidditch-toned thighs"?
Tasty with a hint of BBQ sauce. *licks lips*
Well, I guess if you squeeze a broom between your legs long enough, you're bound to tone…something, right? *tries on several different mental pictures*
5. Your own fanfiction (any fandom, any pairing): What do you think is your most underappreciated work?
It's hard to choose, but I think I'll go with Prince of the Woods: and AU tale of Severus life, set in Arthurian times.
What do you think is your best work?
I had to ask my friend for help on this one, just because it's so hard for me to identify one as 'best'. I know which ones gave me the most challenge, and which were a joy to write, but as far as my best work, I was a chicken, and called for help on this question. Our Tree (H/D) was at the top of a lot of lists, so, here it is. *blush*
6. In your opinion, will Severus Snape turn out to be 'Dumbledore's Man' in Book 7, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows?
Through and through, baby! I truly hope we find out the 'iron-clad' reason why Dumbledore trusted Snape whole-heartedly – and it damn well better be something other than remorse over James and Lily's death, that's for sure. I want to see a flashback to an Unbreakable vow between Snape and Dumbledore, or have Snape at least turn out to be Albus' secret love-child. You know, something solid like that.
7. What do you think of podcasting, the newest fad in fandom? Would you like to hear one of your own stories, or one of your favourites voiced via .mp3?
I think it's brilliant, and I'm a big fan of audio books. That said, I'm also a musician, and therefore somewhat of a recording quality snob, so I don't often listen to podcasts. If I listen to my favourite fics, then I want the recording and the reading to be as stellar as the writing. Budget, editing, and equipment play a big part, but if people are willing to put in the work – I applaud them wholeheartedly. Also, podcasts open up our primarily typed fandom for people who are visually impaired, and that rocks big-time!
8. What pairing have you never written that you would love to try one day? (Any fandom)
I want to branch out from pairings and try my hand at threesomes, and ensemble pieces. I've just finished a Firefly fic, and have fallen in love with how strong the characters are when they play off each other.
As far as HP – That guy I married wants me to write some Luna/Neville!
9. What's your favourite kink to read?
I'm really big on neck-licking, finger-sucking, Parselsmut, whispering/breathing against the ears…and I love reading vampire sex scenes. Ok, I'm so not good at narrowing down favourites to one thing.
10. How do you feel about participating in this year's Snarry Games?
Excited, since I have the bestest team mates! (oh, also nervous too, did I mention that? But I think it's good to shake things up every now and again, so I'll embrace the nervous energy, and try to keep my eye on the 'prize'! )
Thank you, dacro!
