At least I managed to get my shit together enough to sign up for Yuletide. I realize that I haven't posted a fic in ten months. Doesn't matter. I've done Yuletide every year since it started, literally every single year that Yuletide has existed, I am physically incapable of skipping Yuletide even if I have no interest in writing anything ever again. I did break my own rule this year and offered a few fandoms I've already written, because maybe the familiarity will help with the writer's block thing. So it's likely to be a retread year for me. But that's okay.

Gonna pound out a few questions on the fanfic meme now, because none of these are long answers.

4 – Do you have a "muse" character, that speaks to you more than others, or that tries to push their way in, even when the fic isn't about them? Who are they, and why did that character became your muse?

Nope. I don't even know what that means, in a practical sense. Like, I know what a muse is, although I've never used that metaphor in relation to my own writing, but there are no characters who do that to me. Yes, there are characters I relate to better, who are easier or more fun to write. But they're not my "muse." I don't have a muse. That's not how my brain works.

5 –If you have ever had a character try to push their way into a fic, whether your "muse" or not, what did you do about it?

Bzuh? Either I'm writing about a character or I'm not. Some characters are fun to include in cameos, in which case I include them. There's no "pushing their way in". Again, my brain does not work the way this meme does, apparently.

6 – When you write, do you prefer writing male or female characters?

SIGH. History would indicate that I "prefer" male characters. This is not anything inherent to their maleness. It's generally more of a commentary on what characters are more well-developed in canon, because those are the ones I want to explore further (with some notable exceptions). I do feel like an asshole for not writing Natasha much (MCU), because she fascinates me, but I can't get into her head at all. But yes, I'm also aware that internalized misogyny is a big thing, and yes, that's probably part of why I have a tendency to write more dudes than ladies. I'm a shitty lesbian feminist sometimes.
