That survey just came around on the holmes-slash Yahoo-group and I figured I give it a go. I don't really participate on the list so I didn't bother to post there, but I figured it'd be nice for any fandom! So, here goes! :D

What are you working on now?
Two fics. "Re-Possession", a House/Wilson fic I started in January but then abandoned briefly when the urge to write a Torchwood fic became to great and was stifling my writing speed. So kribbanKris "allowed" me to put in a Jack/Ianto fic in between... hehe. So I'm actually working on "When in Rome" now which is close to completion. After that I'll probably pick up "Re-Possession" again, even though I already got bunnied for another Jack/Ianto fic LOL.

"Re-Possession" is about House and Wilson ending up in a haunted house together. In "When in Rome" Ianto gets sucked into a portal and ends up at a strange planet where he's to be sold as a slave unless Jack bails him out. Lame, I know, but it's really not as bad as it sounds! The idea was actually a little ironic because Kris and I were chatting and I said that's the beauty of Torchwood, that you can pull out all those Star Trek and Star Wars clichés again and so we were wondering what could be the silliest alien cliché fic I could write. And here goes. Haha...

What do you think is your greatest strength as a writer? Weakness?
Hmmm... I think I have an inherent talent for writing. It's a bit hard to describe, but I just have a natural feeling for narrative, how to set up a scene, how to make it work out. I can't really explain it, but most of the time I'm surprised by my own writing and I have no idea how I did that. I think I'm especially good at writing lively descriptions of settings (even though I hardly ever do that in fics) and writing good in-character dialogues. I can be rather witty at times.

Conversely, I tend to write too much sometimes. I think I often get lost in details and just describe too much. I admire people who manage to be concise and to the point. I also don't think I'm very artsy which I regret. I'm more of an entertainment writer, the kind who churns out the paperback novels that people buy for a dime, read and forget. I wish it wasn't so... but what can I do. Oh, and I'm way too lazy. I usually have to force myself to write.

Where do you get your inspiration? (music, Canon, etc)
All over the place. Sometimes it's a song, a scene I've witnessed, a random idea that came to my head. Rarely, it's canon actually! I'm not the type to write tie-ins and episode fics and stuff. Most ideas lately stem from chats with Kris, wondering about the characters, their motivations, what they'd do in certain situations... And that's how ideas are born. And then they usually turn into Behemoths of 40 pages D:.

What's your favorite of all the things you've written?
Man, I hate that question. That's like asking which one of my babies is my favorite. You could say I might have stories that are less favorite than others, but in general I really like them all or else I wouldn't have written them. I always feel that the short ones I've written ended up a little poorer, but I don't know. I'm still rather proud of "My Favorite Year" because I think the language is beautiful and I just love that last line. "Altruism" is always a runner-up because it's something I've never done before and I loved that. But all in all... I love them all.

What do you do when you have writer's block?
Despair? LOL

LOL, seriously, I hate it when that happens and I have no remedy for it. I can just wait till it passes. Sometimes chatting with people helps. Usually it's Kris. We then talk the scene over and I hope that inspiration springs from it. But thing it, usually I get blocked for the weirdest reasons. Even when I know exactly what I'm going to write. Then I just can't bring myself to start writing and I just stare at the blank page for hours. Or I start dicking around online, procrastinating, watching vids on YouTube, play Solitaire... stuff like that. Terrible, terrible thing to happen.

What do you love most about writing [insert pairing here]?
Hmm... Let's see. With House/Wilson it's the dynamics of their relationship. I like it that they're friends and peers. They're equals. They both have issues and they know each other well enough to deal with them. I like each of them individually as a character, too, so that makes it all the easier to combine. I like it how they seem so very much married, even on the show. I like the familiarity about them. Things like that. Kinda hard to describe, really. I like the battle of wits I can have between them, the way they tease each other and then support each other again next time. I also like the issues between them that seem to compliment each other. Like... House being emotionally reserved, bitter, grumpy... Wilson on the other hand being caring, outgoing, friendly... needy of neediness. So yeah. Not a very good answer, but the best I can come up with right now.

With Jack/Ianto it's... hmmm... I guess a deep attraction to both characters. There are a lot of things I like about Jack as a character. Like I said to Kris last night, "He has a big heart and an even bigger bed". Hehehe... So I just like writing him. And Ianto I like too. And they have enough chemistry between each other to make fics work. I guess I can't really come up with a better answer right now. I still need to get used to the pairing in general.

Do you have "fear of posting"? How long does it take you to publicly post your writing once it's complete?
No, I don't. At all. To me this is the ultimate goal I'm driven towards. I know it's a really lame thing to say, but it's true. I mean, I'm obviously writing fanfiction to share. Otherwise I probably wouldn't bother. So yeah, as soon as my fic is done I can't wait to post it. It's also good to give me this sense of closure or else I'll continue to dick around with it till Kingdom Come.

How do you feel about feedback?
I love it. I need it. I want it. I mean of course we all say we're not writing for the feedback, but for ourselves yadda-yadda-yadda, but IMO that's only partly true. We may not write for feedback, but we certainly post it. So, when I post a fic I kinda want to get some feedback at least to see that my time and effort wasn't wasted. I don't think that's too much asked. It's like... "careware". When you read a fic you like, let the author know so he or she feels got about it. Also, I like knowing what people have enjoyed about a particular fic. It gives me an idea of what works, what doesn't. And I especially like it when it's things I've took special care in.

I realize this makes me sound really self-absorbed and all... but it's true.

Haha...

Disorder Rating
Paranoid: High
Schizoid: Low
Schizotypal: High
Antisocial: Low
Borderline: Very High
Histrionic: High
Narcissistic: Moderate
Avoidant: High
Dependent: High
Obsessive-Compulsive: High

Paranoid
Paranoid personality disorder is characterized by a distrust of others and a constant suspicion that people around you have sinister motives. People with this disorder tend to have excessive trust in their own knowledge and abilities and usually avoid close relationships with others. They search for hidden meanings in everything and read hostile intentions into the actions of others. They are quick to challenge the loyalties of friends and loved ones and often appear cold and distant to others. They usually shift blame to others and tend to carry long grudges.

Schizoid
People with schizoid personality disorder avoid relationships and do not show much emotion. They genuinely prefer to be alone and do not secretly wish for popularity. They tend to seek jobs that require little social contact. Their social skills are often weak and they do not show a need for attention or acceptance. They are perceived as humorless and distant and often are termed "loners."

Schizotypal
Many believe that schizotypal personality disorder represents mild schizophrenia. The disorder is characterized by odd forms of thinking and perceiving, and individuals with this disorder often seek isolation from others. They sometimes believe to have extra sensory ability or that unrelated events relate to them in some important way. They generally engage in eccentric behavior and have difficulty concentrating for long periods of time. Their speech is often over elaborate and difficult to follow.

Antisocial
A common misconception is that antisocial personality disorder refers to people who have poor social skills. The opposite is often the case. Instead, antisocial personality disorder is characterized by a lack of conscience. People with this disorder are prone to criminal behavior, believing that their victims are weak and deserving of being taken advantage of. They tend to lie and steal. Often, they are careless with money and take action without thinking about consequences. They are often agressive and are much more concerned with their own needs than the needs of others.

Borderline
Borderline personality disorder is characterized by mood instability and poor self-image. People with this disorder are prone to constant mood swings and bouts of anger. Often, they will take their anger out on themselves, causing themselves injury. Suicidal threats and actions are not uncommon. They think in very black and white terms and often form intense, conflict-ridden relationships. They are quick to anger when their expectations are not met.

Histrionic
People with histrionic personality disorder are constant attention seekers. They need to be the center of attention all the time, often interrupting others in order to dominate the conversation. They use grandiose language to discribe everyday events and seek constant praise. They may dress provacatively or exaggerate illnesses in order to gain attention. They also tend to exaggerate friendships and relationships, believing that everyone loves them. They are often manipulative.

Narcissistic
Narcissistic personality disorder is characterized by self-centeredness. Like histrionic disorder, people with this disorder seek attention and praise. They exaggerate their achievements, expecting others to recongize them as being superior. They tend to be choosy about picking friends, since they believe that not just anyone is worthy of being their friend. They tend to make good first impressions, yet have difficulty maintaining long-lasting relationships. They are generally uninterested in the feelings of others and may take advantage of them.

Avoidant
Avoidant personality disorder is characterized by extreme social anxiety. People with this disorder often feel inadequate, avoid social situations, and seek out jobs with little contact with others. They are fearful of being rejected and worry about embarassing themselves in front of others. They exaggerate the potential difficulties of new situations to rationalize avoiding them. Often, they will create fantasy worlds to substitute for the real one. Unlike schizoid personality disorder, avoidant people yearn for social relations yet feel they are unable to obtain them. They are frequently depressed and have low self-confidence.

Dependent
Dependent personality disorder is characterized by a need to be taken care of. People with this disorder tend to cling to people and fear losing them. They may become suicidal when a break-up is imminent. They tend to let others make important decisions for them and often jump from relationship to relationship. They often remain in abusive relationships. They are overly sensitive to disapproval. They often feel helpless and depressed.

Obsessive-Compulsive
Obsessive-Compulsive personality disorder is similar to obsessive-compulsive anxiety disorder. People with this disorder are overly focused on orderliness and perfection. Their need to do everything "right" often interferes with their productivity. They tend to get caught up in the details and miss the bigger picture. They set unreasonably high standards for themselves and others, and tend to be very critical of others when they do not live up to these high standards. They avoid working in teams, believing others to be too careless or incompetent. They avoid making decisions because they fear making mistakes and are rarely generous with their time or money.
