Fic Meme

Stole this meme from [personal profile] likeadeuce.

(You can find most of my fics either in my masterlist or at AO3. Some of my fics at AO3 I added in masterlist but haven't announced it in LJ/DW yet woops.)

Comment with the title of one of my fics and a number, and I will tell you:

1. What was my inspiration for this fic? How did it come to me?
2. What’s my favorite part of the fic?
3. What’s the part of the fic I’m most proud of?
4. What part of the fic was the hardest for me to write?
5. What part of the fic am I still dissatisfied with?
6. Who’s my favorite character in the fic?
7. Were there any major decisions I made about the fic that could have made it go a whole different direction?
8. Was there anything I only learned about the fic after I had finished it? (themes, motifs, symbolism, etc)
9. Did anyone in the fic surprise me by doing anything? If so, what?
10. If I had to sum up this fic in a sentence, what would it be?
11. If I were to rewrite this fic, what would I change?
12. Did any thing about this fic’s reception surprise me?
13. What were my beta’s major comments about the first draft of this fic?
14. If I were to write a sequel to this fic, what would it be about?
15. Any other question about the fic!

My teenage Roy/Riza Halloween fic, haha. To be honest I don't exactly remember how I got that idea (that was almost four years ago, wow). I think I was probably struggling to come up a story for the recipient until I watched movie or tv episode that featured a haunted house. Yeah, that's most likely it, haha.

Good Form! 7, 8, 15 - Any special reason behind your name choice for Benny Watkins?

Okay!

7. Were there any major decisions I made about the fic that could have made it go a whole different direction?

When I wrote that story it was meant to be a short one that took place during the Ishval War, so I don't think there would be any manor decisions that would affect the piece except perhaps having it in Roy's POV instead.

8. Was there anything I only learned about the fic after I had finished it? (themes, motifs, symbolism, etc)

Since this is slightly inspired by Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried, I already had an idea the theme of soldiers in the heart of war will come naturally.

15 - Any special reason behind your name choice for Benny Watkins?

No really special reason, although the last name Watkins I stole from one of the buildings from my university called Watkins Hall, haha.

Thank you!

Ha ha, seeing a certain name around as the name of a location has been the source of the last names for some of my OCs too!
