30) Do you have a favourite fic you've written? What makes it your favourite? And don't forget to give us a link!
Fond as I am of Ac Velut in Somnis and others, I think my overall favourite remains Relaxation and Recreation. because )

28) Have you ever collaborated with anyone else, whether writing together, or having an artist work on a piece about your fic?

As I mentioned back at the beginning, one of my earliest efforts in fanfic was to join the Dark Carnival round-robin. Sadly, that petered out rather than come to a successful conclusion. I think in part this was because it had split into several plot threads and there weren't enough writers willing / able to carry each thread forward.

That round-robin was the closest I've come to collaboration; I've occasionally written sequels to others' works, and [livejournal.com profile] liadtbunny kindly drew an illustration inspired by Genius and Geniality, but I think those are further from what I'd think of as collaboration than round-robin chapters.

26) What is the oddest (or funnest) thing you've had to research for a fic?

What is this 'research' of which you speak?

I think the most fun I had whilst (notionally) researching, was visiting the Romney Marsh at the time I was writing Death on the Marsh. I got to ride on the steam railway and walk around the streets of Dymchurch on a nice sunny day.

25) Music – Do you listen to music while you write? Do you make playlists to get into a certain "mood" to write your fic? Do you need noise in general? Or do you need it completely quiet?
In general, no, I don't listen to music while writing. The exception is one Zoë-fixit that was written to the soundtrack of a game I was playing at the time. I never liked it enough to post, though; Zoë really was a bit too Sueish, even by my standards.

24) Betaing – How many betas do you like to use to make sure there aren't any major flaws in your fic? Do you have a Beta horror story or dream story?
I don't, as a rule, use beta-readers at all. When I started writing I did once run a draft past the LJer who'd suggested I write that particular fic, but she didn't suggest changing anything so I haven't repeated the process. Now and again that means a stupid typo has crept into the posted work, but for the most part I think I've got away with it.

23) When you post, where do you post to? Just your journal? Just an archive? Your own personal site?
As a rule, I upload to an archive site (Teaspoon and AO3 for Doctor Who fanworks, or just AO3 for everything else). Then I post a link on my personal journal, and/or the relevant community. The exceptions tend to be things like comment-fic, where they languish in their original comments and are never seen again.
