linndechir asked: 4, 8, 9.
4. what are some themes you love writing about?
Betrayal, UST, people being torn between different things they feel that they owe something to.
8. is there a character you love writing for the most? the least? why?
I really don’t know! I have been in so many fandoms and written so many different characters that I don’t think I have a favourite. Sometimes, writing a new set of characters is rapturously enjoyable - like learning all about a new person, seeing how they feel in your hands - though that can just be hard work. I do really enjoy writing Jon Snow because he is dumb and angsty and torn between the different things which matter to him in life but he’s not my one favourite forever. As for least favourite, I think if I disliked writing someone, I’d probably try and avoid it. I should probably just admit that I have completely failed to answer this question properly. Sorry.
9. a passage from a WIP
This probably shouldn’t count but I recently read over a draft from back in 2012 of a Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy fic I had half-finished and I like it a lot so I really want to get back to it. It’s an AU where things end a little differently for Jim and Bill: they run away together.
just a simple little thing for you guys to do with me. put a number in my askbox and i’ll answer accordingly.
the mission, should you accept it, is to stay positive about your writing and yourself, but to also be fair about your shortcomings.

"You got some self-loathing to do this morning, that’s fine, but it ain’t worth losing your hands over."
"How would that work, exactly?"
"Well, I’d just apply a couple pounds of pressure, snap your wrists. You’re Senior Detective. Think I’m lying?"

JUSTIFIED Poster Art by Francesco Francavilla
After another great episode of JUSTIFIED on FX last night, I had to draw our favorite bad boy BOYD, definitely as part of the success of the show as Raylan Givens.
White hats, black hats — that’s what they always wore in those old westerns we watched growing up, so we could tell the good guys from the bad guys. That works in a kids’ western. In real life, it’s different. In real life, the bad guys often wear flashy shoes. Their ties aren’t bad, either. Expensive, anyway. Silk. White hats and black hats — they do exist. They try to shape the world in their image. Guys like me have to make do somewhere in the middle. I live in a world of gray hats.
It was January 3, 1995, my daughter’s birthday. I remember.
