Anonymous asked: Who edits your fics?
Me, mostly. J’s beta-read for me a time or two, and I’ve found random people to beta for any of my fic that I’ve put much more effort into than usual, but for the most part, I handle my own editing. I don’t really have the patience to wait for someone to edit when most of what I write is under 2,000 words.
Anonymous asked: What's your favorite book?
That’s a little difficult to answer. I’ve read what must be hundreds of books, and I’ve liked a great deal of them. The book I read for comfort is not the book I read for the beauty of the language, or the book I read for the care the author takes with the emotional landscape. But, as a partial list, here are some of the books I think of that I really liked:
There are literally dozens of others I could put on here, but I think this list is long enough already.

Ok, here's how it works. you say three to five random facts about yourself, then you go Anonymous and snowball your five favorite blogs. If you get snowballed again then you CANNOT snowball any blogs you snowballed before, except if you're out of blogs to snowball. Have fun!
1. I have an actual system for reprogramming my brain. It doesn’t work well for persistent styles of thinking (i.e. anxiety and depression related thought patterns) but it works pretty well for when I want to start or stop having specific ideas.
2. Every Halloween until I was about twelve, I use to steal my brother’s clothes and his skateboard/scooter/bike to dress up a glow-in-the-dark skeleton I’d hang from a tree with branches close to the ground.
3. I have way, way too many craft supplies.
Anonymous asked: Hi! Your Ostara (or something like her) has gotten trapped in my head as the Genderebent Bunny for RoTG. There's a prompt on the rotg Kink meme asking for genderbent stuff, and I was wondering if you would mind if this humble write anon used the name Ostara and her scariness (but not her knife or cutting people, just the idea that female bunny is a scary, scary person) for a fill for that prompt.
Go for it, nonny! Take as much of Ostara as you like. I’m always happy to see my ideas go out and
infest inhabit the world.

Is this a Ra’sTim prompt, nonny? Because it feels like one to me. Another idea for the list, I think. There are some fun phrases in this.
Anonymous asked: 15. High School / College AU. Either Ra's/Tim or Damian/Tim, I'd like to see how you make something that most people think of as cliche into something interesting. I'm pretty sure you can do it though, your Ra's/Tim fics are the best!
Ra’s/Tim, College AU, I think. I am going to be weird here, and make Ra’s a student. Post-graduate, to be precise, and Tim is a freshman, newly eighteen. He tested out of a lot of gen-eds, so he’s in a bunch of higher level classes from the start. Ra’s is a T.A. for one of them- chemistry. The teacher is never there, so Ra’s rules supreme in the class and lab. He’s also the head of a criminal organization (what’s the middle eastern version of the mob?), his father having died in ‘mysterious circumstances’ years ago. He’s currently leading from long-distance, his personal servant Ubu enforcing his orders back in mumbledity. He’s going to college to cultivate connections with the rich and powerful, and establish legitimate credentials to cover his future evil plans. (Ra’s probably made the chemistry teacher ‘disappear’. He never did respond well to people having authority over him)
So Ra’s is cheerfully (for him) tormenting his chemistry class as a way to relieve stress, when he gets this brilliant, beautiful boy in his class. Tim is not impressed by Ra’s, at all. They end up warring with each other, covered by a thin veneer of utmost politeness. Ra’s ends up unbearably fond of Tim, and Tim eventually comes to find Ra’s consistent, if nothing else. Ra’s ends up his unofficial mentor, and they become very weird sort of friends.
In the middle of Tim’s third year, something happens, and Ra’s has to go home, and ride herd on his criminal organization. He has to leave so suddenly he can’t even tell Tim in person. Tim, who lost his parents like in canon (except that Jack died with Janet) freaks out. He puts his dubiously legal talent for hacking to use, finds where Ra’s was going, and follows him. The revelation that Ra’s is a criminal mastermind isn’t as shocking as should be. Ra’s, to protect Tim from being targeted by his enemies, or disgruntled peons within the organization, lies and says Tim is ‘just a minor concubine’ or something like that. Because ‘sort-of protege, friend and confident’ would get a bull’s eye painted on Tim’s back.
And they live happily ever after, with Tim as the ace up Ra’s’ metaphoric sleeve. *Grin* No, really, probably not. But it’s a fun thought.

Anonymous asked: Whats your opinion of cassandra kane
I assume you mean Cass, as in Cassandra Cain, not another character, so please correct me if I’m wrong.
But in short, I think she’s awesome, and completely adorable. I need to write her more often.
You’ve given me an idea for that, actually. Adeline Kane was way, way too interesting to be fridged for the sake of her ex-husband’s character development. She would be an excellent adoptive mom to a semi-feral young Cass.
Anonymous asked: I dont know if youve been asked this but you seem to like charecters that are barley mentioned,janet nyssa, so what made you think of those charcters when you write(please forgive my horrible spelling)
Don’t worry about the spelling nonny. On to the main question, why I like such obscure and little-used characters, I think that’s what you mean?
Here’s my tiny rant on the subject:
It’s part irritated reaction- the cold withdrawing mother the fandom hates is a surprising prevalent character, and it annoys me. Especially since the mother in question is almost always damned based on absences, speculation and built up fanon instead of actual canon issues. I hate the ‘damn the mother’ reaction. Hate it, hate it, hate it, and I usually end up loving the despised mothers for being interesting characters instead of perfect idealized cookie-cutter ‘good mothers’.
Part of it is hunger for more characters of color- hence Xiao Long, Mary, Z, Nyssa, etc. (and you’d think, at very least, when even some of the white fans are complaining about the overwhelming pallour of the DCU, the editors would consider that maaaaaaaybe there are enough white faces out there.) And also, for characters of archetypes that aren’t very popular- ice cold characters, damaged and angry characters who don’t heal, characters who are ruthless in their priorities…and looking back at this list, I should clarify: archetypes that aren’t very popular when they’re not the white male leads.
And part of it is the fact that DC can’t see a good thing when it does a strip tease in front of them, and tend to kill, derail, or ret-gone all their best and most promising characters before they have a chance to shine.
