So sorry for the delay in responding, Anon!

Here we go:

13:What’s your favorite writing quote?

"I hate writing. I love having written." ~ Dorothy Parker
16:How do you feel about movies based on books?

Some are wonderful, like the Harry Potter & Lord of the Rings series, and “Perks of Being a Wallflower”.  Others are just a vast disappointment. I won’t name names.
21:Do you outline?

Yes. Some chapters in depth, some only loosely.  And sometimes it still doesn’t help me get the words out right.
40:Which is your favorite original character, and why?

Just one?  Ooh, that’s difficult.  Eric Draven from (the original) The Crow is pretty high on my list. Eric Northman from the SVM series.  Roland Deschain from The Dark Tower series.  All strong characters who are broken somehow (Northman less so, but still.)

42:Do you enjoy making your characters suffer?

Do I enjoy it?  Well, it makes for a better story when they are able to overcome whatever is making them suffer, so yes, for that real I guess I enjoy it.  Nothing like some good angst. haha
45:What’s your favorite character name?

My own original character in my upcoming book. :) 

47:If you could steal one character from another author and make then yours, who would it be and why?

Buffy Sommers.  Because she’s the strongest female character I’ve ever seen in modern culture. (yes, that’s TV, but she still counts)

If anyone else has any questions, please just ask!

s1 Damon, thankyouverymuch…

"You can’t  d  i  e  on me.” 

Dammit True Blood…you finally gave me a great episode and sucked me right back on board the Sookie/Eric ship.  Loved this ep - but now my expectations and hopes will be way too high and I’ll surely be disappointed.  But the looks on their faces!  *swoon*  Please TB, prove me wrong and give me a E/S endgame.  Maybe faerie blood is the cure to Hep V?  I think Eric needs to find out.

So I wrote a little DE one shot and I thought I’d share.  It’s canon-ish, set sometime in S2.  Rated M.  It’s kind of overly emotional and angsty, but it’s from Elena’s pov, so I think it fits what a 17 year old girl would be thinking in these moments. Hope you like. Pretty please review/share?

Thanks!  You guys are the best!
