• I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can satisfy my curiosity plus an addendum: I can't guarantee that these questions will be asked anytime soon, because I'm on a mad writing streak right now. *cheats*

The questions knw asked me:
1) What makes you happiest at the moment?
2) What superpower do you wish you had and why?
I want to be able to fly. I've thought over dozens of more practical superpowers, including invisibility, combat abilities, telepathy and what have you, but I would just love being able to fly. It's funny because I used to be terrified of rollercoasters and thrill rides in general, until I convinced myself that riding them was just like flying would be. I want to be able to perform all those dives and loops on my own, without one of those bloody harnesses holding me into the car.
3) If you got to be with the twins, but you had to promise to never eat rare steak again, would you promise and then 'cheat' later?
Um, hell yes I would. As soon as I made the promise I'd start fantasizing about rare steak. I'd probably go out and wolf one down the next day, to be honest.
4) If you only write and post one story out of all your WIPs (posted and unposted) which would it be, and why?
Oh god, this question is painful. The answer has to be Like Clockwork, though. With most of my stories, I'm able to snap easily in and out of the headspace required for the writing, but Clockwork grabs hold every so often and won't let go. I'd probably go mad if I wasn't able to write that one and its sequel (which we will just call part of the same fic for the sake of convenience, here).
5) Do you think there is anything in the world that could make you give up fandom?
Depends on your definition of fandom, I suppose. For instance, if I was in the middle of Nepal or something without an internet connection, I probably wouldn't be checking twitter or Cult and Apex every day. But this fandom has me so inspired that no, even then I wouldn't give up writing for it, as long as I had something to write with and something to write on. As a writer, it's essential for me to love my work, and fandom has rekindled that love time and again. So, there you go. (Also, I love all you guys, so I'd take a Blackberry or iPhone to Nepal with me and pray they have wireless internet someplace.)
