Because you might literally be the oldest* friend on my LJ, I think I'll step forward.

(*not in age... blah, you know what I mean)

No, I'm old. I know it.

1. Tell you why I friended you.
Oh, so long ago. I think I read and reviewed one of your fics, and you were courteous enough to do the same, and it went from there.

2. Associate you with something.
Libertarianism, of course

3. Tell you something I like about you.
You speak your mind. Also, you were one of the best writers in CCS fandom, and I'm sad we don't share fandoms anymore, because I miss reading your stuff.

4. Tell you a memory I have of you.
When you wanted to know where the Shrine challenges were coming from and how you could get in on it. You brought some great stuff to the group.

5. Associate you with a character/pairing.
Um.... oh, yeah, Touya

6. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.
What do you find to be the hardest part of the writing process and how do you break through it?

7. Tell you my favourite userpic of yours.

8. Tell you that you must post this in your own journal.
If you like.

I like your answers! Sigh, I miss reading your stuff too. If there was a fic in this new fandom of yours that could be enjoyed without canon knowledge, which would it be?

I think the hardest part of writing is having the confidence to go forward with my chosen plot. Sometimes I come up on crossroads and I realize that my next few steps could drastically change the course of the story. And the reason that such a thing occurs to me is because I actually do have a few mental images from each path, and I know they're good ideas, but they're mutually exclusive and I have to choose. It's the worst feeling, having that doubt eat you up inside. The best way to deal with it, I think, is to write out the logical conclusion of each option and see where it's going to lead. Because it's all about how things end, and if I don't know that then I'm not going to get anywhere. The one with the best ending is the path to take.

Of my stuff, I'd say Out Here doesn't require too much canon knowledge, as it's pairing-focused rather than plot-focused, which is typical for me anyway, really.

You always do plotting so well, so it's kind of a relief to hear it can trip you up. It's definitely my weakest point and the biggest issue with my thing I'm working on right now. I'm trying to just take it one chapter at a time, but I'm still worried about making the eventual ending satisfying enough. So that answers why I've never finished anything.
