The bane of my existence. Sometimes, they just show up. Other times, I’ll have something written (though maybe not complete) and will be itching to post it, but won’t have anything decent to name it. Chaptered fic….it depends. For certain fics, yes, but sometimes no.
18 – Where do you get the most inspiration for your fics (aka "bunnies") from?
Now or in the past? In the bad old days of 2000-2007 when I still just watched TV over an antennae and got Netflix by a DVD? Back then, I didn’t have a DVR so I was judicious about what I recorded on VCR during the season run. And so there was always commercials. As annoying as they are to me (and oh the fights I have with my parents when I mute commercials when I visit them), those 30-90 second intervals always give me time to daydream. What was Mal thinking in the scene that just cut off? Why did Mozzie lie to Neal about that?
And then there was always the attack plot bunnies that would appear just as I was closing my eyes for sleep. *glares at River*
Now? Every once in a while one will just occur to me, usually as I’m in an airport or something. But again, my frog muse has been in hibernation for years, so I’ve also been asking people to throw bunnies to try to get him to wake up.
