Snagged from ithildyn
i haven't done one of these... ever, and i don't know if there is even any interest, but i figured i would put it out there.

Have you ever wanted to ask me a question about one of my fanfics? Here is your chance to ask me anything you want...

What inspired it, what in the world was I was thinking when I wrote it, how do I feel about it now, what do I wish I'd done differently, what would have happened if... etc.

Or you can ask any of the characters from a particular story something you want to know, and get an answer from them.

It can be about absolutely anything in any of my fics (even if it is still a WIP, except for the co-authored ones) and I will tell you the answer. Don’t hold back. I won't *g* Ask about major upcoming plot points if you want to and whatever you ask, I will answer truthfully.

I will warn you in advance if my answer contains a major spoiler and give you a chance to back out. If you then decide that you still want to hear the answer, I'll give it to you.

Think carefully before asking a question. You might not want the answer as badly as you think you do. ;)

What's her favorite food!

Is she going to take over the world?

Who's her favorite of the seven, besides her daddy, Ezra.

How many of his overpriced ties end up as shmoogies?

well let's see... translating for her, she says that yes, she will be attempting to take over the world. for that, she will need minions to do her bidding. she already has seven of them, but she has trouble getting them to do what she wants half the time.

her favorite food, she says, is tuna... like she was given on that first night that ezra foundher. since then, he's given her cat food, which is fine and yummy, but she would prefer to have tuna again.

her favorite of the seven... she seems to like them all, but she likes to chase Buck, and still can't quite figure out why he gets so nervous around her. JD is fun, and always playes with her, and Vin is fun to have around as well. she likes to cuddle with Josiah cuz his big hands keep her safe.

ezra has donated this one tie to her, in the hopes that it will kepp his others safe. he plays with it with her, and knotted it up to make it more of a toy rather than just leaving it long. so, hopefully, she'll only get the one. he has been keeping the others secured in one of his dresser drawers just in case.

I'd like to know more about Broken & Gone Wrong - what the inspiration was behind that, and any details you're inclined to share.

ahh yes... the two big time ouchies.

I'll start with Gone Wrong...
this was my first foray into fanfiction... ever. i have been writing most of my life, but never posted anything online, never really shared anything with anyone.
one day, i was at work, and i was in a room slowly wasting the day away. i was messing around online (like i usually did), reading fanfiction, or checking email.
so i got this scene in my head, of buck looking across the floor at ezra, who was unable to answer him, although conscious, and all messed up. so i opened a word program on the comptuer i was on and started writing. the first paragraph of Gone Wrong was what i had been thinking about, and it stayed pretty uch untouched throughout the writing and editing process.
i wrote the rest of the story over a period of three days, and only editied it myself. in hindsight, i may have done a little better with some aspects of it if i had a beta reader, but i am still proud as hell of it.
i wrote it as graphically as i could, without the torture becoming the main focus of the piece.
i won't lie, i like to write OUCH in a big bad nasty way. i like bad guys.
i write things that i would be afraid of.
and at the ens, i did have ezra discuss things with the boys, which a lot of people didn't really 100% buy. but i like to make my own rules. :D

and now, for Broken:
i wrote broken based on a snippet of a dream i had, where the guys went to ezra's house, found blood everywhere, and a tooth. then i woke up. and i was like "Nooo! i have to know what happens!!"
and so i wrote.

the shillelagh in that... i don't know what originally started that idea in my head, but then i looked a bit online to see if they could really do that kind of damage. and yeah, they can. my dad has a shillelagh, and after holding it a bit, yeah, i could mess someone up with that.
i am obsessed with ezra's tooth. i have another smaller fic i am playing with about how he lost it, originally, and tying it in to the events in Broken.
and in Broken, i also created a fairly decent OMC in Jimmy Rourke. i intend to play with him further, but i haven't decided how yet.
when i was originally writing it, jimmy wasn't an agent. i found myself getting written into a corner after ezra had been taken. i had no idea how to get him out of there and ok. then it dawned on me... someone on the inside. once i figured that out, the rest was easy enough.
i ended Broken a little quickly. i did it on purpose... i didn't want to write another "he gets really hurt, he has a really long recovery, the guys are there for him" story. i knew, if i wrote the recovery bit as i write, it would end up a novel. and i really wanted to get to the scene with jimmy coming to see him.
and the jimmy scene was originally a bit different. ezra was the one yelling at him, and the rest of the guys were silent. after a beta reading by my awesome beta, she said she didn't think that ezra would react that way. i agreed with her and tweaked the scene.
after Broken ended, i kept thinking about what happened while Ezra was waiting in the woods. i wondered what he thought about, cuz i had him waking up and fighting like hell when the medics got there, so he had to be thinking something. that's why i wrote "Pieces".

and i do plan on continuing both story arcs. Gone Wrong, After and at least a third one is planned. Broken, Pieces, and at least one more is planned (people want to know about ezra and jimmy).

Wow, that is so interesting, thank you for sharing that info with me. Both stories are so - I don't know what to call them - they drag you in, and you can't help but want to know where it all started, and what the reason was that it went so badly.

I'm looking forward to reading more in the arc!

Oh! An Irishman's heart is as stout as shillelagh,

It beats with delight to chase sorrow and woe;

When the piper plays up, then it dances gaily,

And thumps with a whack to leather a foe.
