Oooh, fun question!
The hardest part is when I have that ‘am i writing a Mary Sue?’ moment. Rose has a lot of the hallmarks of a Mary Sue, but I like to think she has enough negative personality traits to keep her in the well-rounded character category. So when I worry that I’m not writing Rose as well as I could be, I ask myself, “What would James Potter do?” I’m not talking James Potter circa “Lily, take Harry and run!” but the James Potter who Levicorpused Snape and then made fun of his dingy underwear. So I try to figure out what that guy would do, and then I tone it down a notch. Or five.
My favorite parts are her interactions with Sirius and Ginny. I love both of those relationship dynamics, and writing any scene with those characters is always easy and fun. They always have something to say to each other, and it’s usually funny.
someone i subscribe to on AO3 posted an oliver/felicity arrow fic, and i read it because i just finished watching arrow s1 on netflix, and that led to raiding the oliver/felicity tag on AO3, and i have done nothing else for the past three days.
take the internet away from me.
are you ever writing, and you have to google something for some tiny, inconsequential detail, and suddenly it’s an hour, five articles, and three youtube videos later?
Thank you, bb!!
