1. Your favourite fic you’ve written
well, i'll always have a very large soft spot for my two current longfics, Before Destruction
and The Accidental Renaissance of Zacharias Smith
. i'm very proud of every longfic i write though so, idk. i guess of all my hq!! fics, which, lbr, is my current big fandom, this has to be slow down, you're taking me over
. it's my favourite not only because of the content (highly collaborative in nature, from discussions with my beta reader viv) but because of the reaction. i feel like it's not too presumptuous of me to say that it started something. and it's fun, i loved writing it. i love the ideas. so, yeah.
2. Your least favourite fic you’ve written
if i restrict this to stuff on my current ao3, it's a j/b fic, Somebody Likes You
. i'm sure somebody
likes this fic, haha, but it's not me. i mean. it's okay. it's just not really my thing anymore. i also think i've been poisoned to it forever because, upon a reread several months after posting, i discovered a really ambiguously-worded answer to a double-negative question, had no idea how to fix it, freaked out, and never touched it again. oops.
if i look to the past, this answer changes. it's a shitty merlin modern au that i co-wrote with a friend. it died after like five chapters. no, you don't get a link.
3. Your most popular fic
this is by any other name
. it's the first hq!! fic i ever wrote, almost a year ago, and it's been a really weird experience for me. because, like, having your entry into a fandom being so dramatic (it got 110 kudos overnight... wtf)—after that everything sort of takes on a different perspective. idk. like i said, it's weird.
4. The fic you wish more people would read
hands down this is Coincidence
. i poured my heart and soul into this fic but because it was for hq!! winter hols and i posted it to the collection early, when it was posted it was backdated by over a week, and so it didn't get any front page traffic. and it's always dwindled compared to my other (some shorter) oisuga fics, which sort of makes me flop about hopelessly, because i stayed up late and made myself very emotional writing it. it's sort of personal and, strangely, that makes me want to share it with others.
5. The fic you most enjoyed writing
possibly i have never had more fun with a fic than Mutually Assured Distraction
. it was the first fic i completed for rarepair week, and i'd spent forever trying to decide what to do for that day. but once i had the idea, i had
it, and i just powered through it. it was a great experience. i put a lot of humour into it and a lot of my favourite tropes and i still reread it regularly.
6. Your funniest fic
this is hard because i genuinely think i am hilarious and a true blessing to the comedy fic genre. i get lots of comments to this tune which does absolutely nothing for my burgeoning ego. however i think in the end i have to go for texting (with a capital S)
because it was the sort of funny that, when i was writing it, i regularly had to stop and go, holy shit, what am i doing
. but it got a really positive reaction and... i mean, i tagged it Inappropriate Humour. that sort of says it all. plus, the mixed media nature of texting fic allows me to do one of my favourite things, that is, play around with structure, and i like using that to a comedic effect. so the more experimental, the funnier i can be. this was one of those cases.
7. Your hottest fic
if i were to give the real
answer to this question, well, let's just say no-one is allowed to know that this one exists. the cop-out answer is the parts of Due Season
that i didn't write (xoxo @ aroceu
OH WAIT ACTUALLY there was that time i genuinely posted smut to ao3 but it was part of a huge joke with a friend about how perfect fanfiction sex always is. it's called there's a chance we could make it
, which is a line from this song
, which goes to show how seriously i took it.
8. Your saddest fic
go figure, asoiaf fandom rears its head. this was me challenging myself to write the saddest possible j/b deathfic ever... i know, what was i thinking, and i made myself cry in the process, even. but blue and white, and black
is really nicely written imho and there's a certain sick satisfaction in knowing that you make other people as sad as you. yikes.
9. The fic you’d like to remembered for
is it weird that my answer to this is that i haven't written it yet? or, more accurately, i've started writing it, but it won't be posted for quite a while because it's a longfic and i want to get ahead. it doesn't have a title yet, but it's an au where oikawa and suga's roles are reversed, and it's going to be quite the epic. it's probably going to be genfic, too, and—long, ensemble cast genfic. that's how i want to be remembered.
well, that's for hq!! at least. in asoiaf i'm always going to be remembered for Before Destruction
, that's not even a question. that's also fine by me. as mentioned. i love that fic.
going even further back, absolutely no-one remembers me as That One Person who wrote That One Longfic for That One Rarepair in the harry potter fandom. ideally let's keep it that way but i'm lowkey proud of 16-year-old-me for writing something 60k long, even if a lot of it is utter garbage.
10. The thing(s) your fic contributed to fandom headcanon
okay. well. ennofuta. again i don't want to sound too big about the impact i've had but i'm just gonna toot my own horn quickly and say that prior to my works, there was one tweet (as far as i can tell!) proposing the idea of ennofuta in the western hq!! fandom. (it's big in the korean fandom and idk how long it's been there for.) but yeah, it's that one thing everyone knows me for. i guess outside fic i'm also known as that person who cracks jokes about old man yaoi, aka my sneaky ship ukai snr/washijou. i'm still working on the ship name. and, for reference, i am
writing it. stay tuned.
just quickly, interesting to note that i didn't seem to list much of my newer fic here? i do love it a lot. it just needs more time to settle. i love most of my fic, actually. that's why it's out there. that's why i wrote it. sigh.
