Doing a few more of these days at once, since the answers are fairly short:

30 Days of Fanfiction Meme -- Days 11-14

11 – Genre – do you prefer certain genres of fic when you're writing? What kind do you tend to write most?

I don't think so? Beyond, of course, whatever genre the original source text is. I don't purposely (usually) set out to write a romance or an adventure strictly on its own. Most of my stuff has elements from a couple different genres all married together into whatever best serves the story.

12 – Have you ever attempted an "adaptation" fic of a favorite book or movie but set in a different fandom?

I guess Percy Weasley: Rogue Demon Hunter counts, since it's essentially a Percy-as-Wesley pastiche, but it's also a true crossover with Angel so...

On the other hand, if you mean have I just cold ripped off the plot of, say, Casablanca and changed all the character names? The answer is no.

13 – Do you prefer canon or fanon when you write? Has writing fanfic for a fandom changed the way you see some or even all of the original source material?

I'm barely even in fandom anymore on my best days, so I don't have much exposure to 'fanon.' I get the appeal of having a shared interpretation of certain elements – it builds a sense of community, creates fun in-jokes and the like, but, as a storyteller, using it feels a little lazy. It's sloppy storytelling to just assume that your reader belongs to this like-minded community. Not to harsh on anyone else's fun, those are my standards for me and not other people. Though, as a reader, I tend to tune out/click the back button if something doesn't do the work of explaining a trope to me in a way I can grasp.

14 – Ratings – how high are you comfortable with going? Have you ever written higher? If you're comfortable with NC-17, have you ever been shocked by finding that the story you're writing is G-rated instead?

I tend to fall right in the middle, roughly PG to R (or “M for Mature” or whatever we're calling it these days).
