Fanfic meme. Missed yesterday because of LJ being stupidpants, so, have two answers today.

8 – Do you write OCs? And if so, what do you do to make certain they're not Mary Sues, and if not, explain your thoughts on OCs.

I do write OCs, but generally not as main characters. I think maybe I'm afraid it would be harder for me to hold onto that canon universe if I built the story around a character who didn't exist there. I enjoy writing OCs, though, (Now, RPing was a very different experience for me with OCs. My three very favorite characters to RP were OCs. Then again, that was more of an original universe than anything.)

However, I absolutely love writing canon characters who are nearly OCs by virtue of very little canon about them being available. (My 17k [livejournal.com profile] numb3rs_novella is one case of that.)

9 – Pairings – For each of the fandoms from day two, what are your three favorite pairings to write?

Hmm. I don't know if my answers are necessarily all that obvious. My favorite pairings to write aren't always the ones I write the most often. And my favorite pairings to write aren't always my favorite pairings to read. Plus, my favorite pairings to write have shifted and changed over the years. Sometimes I absolutely fall for a pairing and write a ton of them, then I lose interest, then something reminds me why I love that pairing and I'll write more. I guess for this one I'm going with my old standby pairings. These are the pairings that I consistently love to write. (Though in some cases I've only written them once or twice. Mostly the preceding paragraph applies to HP, I guess.)

OK, just got home from an amusement park with the hellmonkeys and I'm dead tired and will catch up and post a proper update tomorrow. <3
