Crossover Interview: Dr Harleen Frances Quinzel (Harley)

For my second interview for the crossover genre, I had the great pleasure of talking with Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel (affectionately dubbed Harley by many of her readers). I confess to stalking every single one of her stories as she’s one of the rare breeds to cross Twilight with various comic book fandoms.

So please, let me introduce you all to the one and only Harley!

What do you prefer, Tea or Coffee?

Coffee

What is your favorite beverage of choice? And if alcoholic and mixed, what are the ingredients?

Dr Pepper or Corona Extra sometimes Bud Light. A beer girl not much fruity drinks – they’re rare for me.

What is your funny story about trying something to drink and it rocked your boat and/or sucked?

The time my best girlfriend and I made what we called Don Henley’s. We were only 12 lol nonalcoholic btw okay… But it was watermelon Kool-Aid, 7 up, and lime sherbet. That stuff rocked and we drank it until we got stomach aches. Only now we’re older and put vodka in it, lol.

What foods do you love?

Anything on the grill (barbeque). I love baked goods such as brownies and such. Fresh fruits and veggies. Hate onions lol.

What is your go to food for comfort?

I like fresh strawberries and bananas. I know it’s weird, but I slice them up and snack on them like they were candy. Guilty pleasure.

What do you like to snack when writing?

No, nothing really. I usually have me a Dr. Pepper or coffee and I’m good to go.

Is there a scent that says home to you?

Rain… I love the smell of rain. Nothing like it…

Is there a scent you wish you never smelled ever?

Lol, hmmm… I’m a CNA so fecal matter perhaps.

If you could visit a place, anywhere, where would it be?

I’d love to visit Ireland. I come from Irish/Scottish bloodline. If I had to choose between the two places it’d be Ireland I suppose, but would love to visit both sometime.

If you could go to any point in time, which would it be?

Ugh, that’s a tough one. Maybe middle school? So I could redo some terrible choices I made and grow a pair, lol. Let’s just say I can relate to Peter Parker in a lot of ways which is why I’m so partial to him. He’s not my favorite, but we got a lot in common. We should have been drinking buddies.

What music do you like?

Rock, Metal, Alternative, Classic Rock, little country… very little rap.

Is there a genre or song you hate?

Can’t stand Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Boy Bands like One Direction

Tell us something about yourself that you think your fans would love to know about:

Haha right? Hmmm… Let’s just say I was a lot like Bella Swan in the book, but grew up more like Peter Parker. I got jumped a few times and was always finding myself in trouble. Trouble I never searched for, believe it or not. It always found me. Only once I got out of high school and went to college I finally grew a pair. My stories are rather based off how I wish Bella would have done things or would have grown when Edward left. That and when Jacob pulled his crap. I love the books, don’t get me wrong. I just wish certain things would have been done differently. I really, really, really wish Bella would have let both boys have it! She should have stuck to her guns and told them how she really felt and how pissed off she was. That’s why I write Bella Swan the way I do. We share similar things, even a birthday September 13. Only I drew the line on being so soft on Eddie boy and Jake the sun, lol. Let’s just say I was always partial to Jasper Whitlock.

So what about the Good Stuff: The Writing

 

Why did you start writing?

Irony have it, I had to write my first actual story in high school. I loved my English teacher Mr. Miller. He was awesome and always encouraged me. Even said I had a knack for writing. Only, of course, my stories weren’t so (cough) graphic considering it was high school. From there I found it to be a challenge and an escape. If I was having a bad day I’d come home from school or work and write. At first I started with something simple such as lyrics and poems. Then I worked my way up. I’m far from a great writer. I don’t have great grammar, punctuation, or spelling. This I know, but I do it out of the love for it, not to be a perfectionist.

What do you enjoy the most about it?

When it takes me somewhere else… I can escape this world for a bit and go to another.

What do you like least about it?

Freaking out about what my viewers will think. If I screwed up anywhere or if I made a decision I can’t take back and people hate it, which tends to happen. That’s just life. But I still find myself stressing about it at times. I’ll be like, well hell should I have made that decision with this character or not…? Will my fans hate it?

That first time hitting publish, how did you feel?

Mixed emotions such as excitement and hoping I did a good job.

Where do you get your inspiration?

My best friend and husband – he knows who he is. I turn to him often for support and he’s often enough my muse. I know if I’m in a rut I can turn to him.

What is your writing area like do you use computer or paper, or both? Or another medium?

My laptop. I sit in a recliner and type away.

Do you use an outline, rough draft or just write?

Just write.

What do you do while you’re writing (listen to music, TV in the background, etc.)?

Music always…

What annoys you the most when you are trying to write?

Being interrupted constantly, lol. By the phone, TV, people around me being so loud I can’t even think.

If you have finished a fic, what was your feeling on it?

Yay! I got one done! Crap, I pray I ended that one right so my readers don’t crucify me. Then again I write for myself and my own enjoyment just as much and I do my best to remind myself that always…

What are your favorite fandoms to write?

Comic books/movies/TV series

Who are your favorite characters to write

Bella Swan, Deadpool, Wolverine, The Avengers

Why?

Bella because I can relate to her (some), Deadpool cause he’s bad ass and makes me laugh. The Wolverine, because he’s a very honorable character. Logan is one of those that I can never get enough of writing about. He’s easily one of my favorite comic book characters of all time. That man has been through literal hell, but he still follows his own path and beliefs. He doesn’t ever let anyone tell him differently. That and well ,come on he’s HOT, lol. The Avengers? What girl doesn’t want to be locked in a room with them? Not just the sex appeal and the fact that they all are awesome, but they make you laugh. Any man that can make a woman laugh and kick ass is golden in my eyes. That’s why I usually mix humor with my stories. I like to laugh.

Who are your least favorite characters to write?

Lana Lang – I hated how she treated Clark Kent! Mary Jane – I can’t stand what a drama queen she is and always thought Peter Parker could do way better. I’d rather have seen him end up with Gwen Stacy and I don’t care for her all that much either. Too bad him and Kitty Pryde never hooked up, lol. Cyclops (boy scout Scott) let’s face it he cheated on Jean Grey and well, dammit, I wanted to see Wolverine finally get his girl! Never happened! Edward Cullen ugh… not going there.

Why?

Got ahead of you and answered up top.

What is your favorite scene or story you have written and why?

Taking The Plunge when Logan was training Bella. I loved how the characters (mainly Bella) grew and so did their bond.

What is the most difficult story or scene you have written, and why?

Fire and Brimstone, when Azazel took Bella for his own, I found it very hard to write. It tugged at my emotions as I felt horrible for Nightcrawler and Ember. I really get into my writing and at times I have to remind myself: hey, you’re the one writing this! Then with Deadpool I get the voices in my head, lol.

Do you see any characteristics in the characters you write?

How I write Bella in my stories is usually how I’d like to perceive myself. Though I do see myself in Peter Parker as well.

Which ones and whom?

Answered up top, lol.

What do you like most about your preferred fandom?

The variety. There’s so much to work with and sky’s the limit on where I want to take it.

How would you describe your fics?

Eh…. Ummm… Unique? Is that the word? I put a little bit of everything in my stories.

What story would you recommend of your own for a new fan to start first?

Taking The Plunge (interviewer note: that story is a sequel to her one-shot Sex, Lies, and Wolverine, so I’d consider starting there first!)

Now that we’ve broken you in: The Nitty Gritty

 

If you could offer a suggestion to someone who is thinking of publishing their first story, what would it be?

Write with your heart. Free your mind do whatever it takes to find your muse and just let it come naturally. If you dig deep enough your mind will wander off to another world and just take it from there. All kinds of fun is sure to rise!

If you could go back in time, and give yourself one word of advice, what would you say? (No Lottery numbers or anything like that!!!)

Try not to worry so much about what others think. Live for yourself, because life can be short and even if it’s not – you only live once.

Tell us what you read!

 

I tend to write more than I read. But I have read a few fics, though not many. This one guy (I hope I get his profile name right) BetterInTexas- Destiny, Whether You Like It Or Not (Bella/Garrett). Thirsty For Your Love (Bella/Damon)- Bertie Bott, Mk One- From The Shadows (Harry P/0C), Jinx Dodson – Getting Forked Up In Washington (Dean/Bella). http://kittyinaz.com/ also has some good ones… I owe each of these writers reviews – this was before I even had an account and didn’t know what the hell I was doing. It took me forever just to learn how to open an account and post. Sorry guys!

Is there something you wished I asked, and if so, what as well as the answer.

I think you did great!

TVD Interview: Demitria Teague

Can you please tell the people reading this your name?

Danae Infinger Pen Names: Ariadne Morag and Demitria Teague

Where do you like to post, and can you give us the site of your preferred medium?

www.FanFiction.Net  Here is my personal url for the site:  https://www.fanfiction.net/u/1136856/

What do you prefer, Tea or Coffee?

I’m southern, so we like our sweet tea, but nothing makes me happier than a delicious mug of hot, creamy coffee.

What is your favorite beverage of choice? And if alcoholic and mixed, what are the ingredients?

Mm… Chocolate milk.. and Coke.. and Mountain Dew (Regular, Code Red, and the blue kind – Can’t remember the name.)

What is your funny story about trying something to drink and it rocked your boat and/or sucked?

I first saw the new Mountain Dew choices when I was working as a cashier at Winn Dixie.  I thought Mm.. let’s try this.  Although, I never believed for a second that new flavors could outdo the original Mountain Dew.  I was right.  I tried the white Mountain Dew flavor and it just tasted like a flat original flavored one.  Such a huge disappointment.  It’s like *tastes… makes face and hands it over to the person beside me – like, take this as far away from me as possible.  I will never drink it again.

What foods do you love?

I love pizza – omg.. and beef flavored Ramen Noodles with hot sauce.  Makes my mouth water just thinking about it.  I also love Chinese food.

What is your go to food for comfort?

Original Lays Chips

What do you like to snack when writing?

I don’t like to eat when I’m writing, because I constantly have to clean my fingers off, but I do love chewing gum.  It helps me focus, while giving me delicious mouth watering flavor.

Is there a scent that says home to you?

I’m a scent freak.  I could have an entire room dedicated to things that smell good, but the only scent I can think of is coffee – fresh brewed.  My dad has his routine that he makes at least two to three pots of coffee a day.  He makes it so good that he’ll make enough for our huge family and just start passing mugs out.

Is there a scent you wish you never smelled…ever?

Omg.. Chicken manure.

If you could visit a place, anywhere, where would it be and why?

England.  I love the accent.

If you could go back to any point in time, which would it be and why?

I would never want to go back in time.  I believe that the past is what makes you who you are.  I love who I am and would never want to risk losing any of the experiences that I’ve had.  I am a stronger, happier, and more intelligent person because of my past.

What music do you like?

I enjoy all music – even classical, but my favorite genre is alternative rock.

Is there a genre or song you hate?

I don’t like songs that talk vulgar.  Like, talking about your pants around your feet or something involving a woman’s vagina (the Pu**y word – Yuck!)

Tell us something about yourself that you think your fans would love to know:

I have O.C.D., which leads me to perfect my stories and finish what I start.  I can’t leave things undone or it will drive me nuts until I finish it.

 

Thanks. That gives us some basic information. Now, about the writing – I know you’re excited…

Why did you start writing?

When I was a child I used to draw – A LOT.  Most of the people that I drew were characters with full profiles.  Names, ages, powers, clothes, their height, their likes and dislikes, their fears, strengths and weaknesses, all of that.  Even what world they came from.  I was a very creative and imaginative child.  Eventually, just drawing wasn’t enough for me.  I felt compelled to tell these character’s stories and it was only natural that I would start writing.  I don’t remember when I first laid pen to paper and began to tell stories in the text medium, but I am sure glad that I did.  My life has been the most rewarding only because writing has kept me sane.  I never feel a level of immense joy until I get mondo inspiration for a story that I feel compelled to write and I never feel more me unless I’m writing it.  When I finish it and finally put it out there, when someone lets me know how much they enjoyed it.  It really lights up my soul when I know that I have entertained someone for even a small amount of their time and that they enjoyed it.  Writing isn’t just what I do it’s who I am.

What do you enjoy the most about it?

It’s pure creation.  I get to be a spectator of life and beauty and wonder coming from no where.  A reader is just a person who is taken on an adventure.  The writer get’s the front row seat at the very creation of it.  Because my stories write themselves I stare wide eyes as these amazing people and amazing worlds come into view and flow out of my fingertips on to a blank page or screen.  It’s the greatest gift in the world and I feel blessed to be a writer.

What do you like least about it?

A lot of times when I’m away from writing for a little while, a day or two, because I couldn’t bare to go any longer than that with out writing, when I go back to it I feel this horrible sense of dread.  It’s just my body’s resistance to having to make the effort and do something.  I don’t know why I get like this, because I absolutely love to write.  That dread eats me up so bad, though.  Ugh.  But I press on and push through it and am rewarded with the magic of pure creation.

That first time hitting publish, how did you feel?

I have never published anything the old fashioned way, but I have published stuff on www.FanFiction.Net and Yahoo Contributor and each time I publish anything I either feel extremely excited to finally get it up or I roll my eyes and sigh, so relieved to finally get that project away from me.  When you read something over and over and over to edit it, it gets old.  To me any way.  I’m a Gemini.  I like fresh things and I love to begin things.  It takes real effort for me to push through and finish stuff.  

Where do you get your inspiration?

Everything inspires me.  Movies, books, poems, lyrics, hearing bits of random conversation, images, and sometimes I just have awesome ideas pop in to my head from nowhere.  Sometimes, a single color will evoke a story to life and it feels like it just blossoms like a flower in my head and I run to paper and write it down, because I can hardly contain myself with the excitement that I feel.

What is your writing area i.e do you use computer or paper, or both? Or another medium?

I use both computer and paper.  I’ve thought about using a voice recorder, but I don’t really think it’d be a smart thing to voice aloud some of the things that pop in to my head.  I have family members around all the time and I don’t want to have to explain myself or deal with the weird looks they give me.  

Do you use an outline, rough draft, or just write?

I lay out main ideas and places I want the story to go.  I also write out character development and the synopsis.  All these things may change, but they give me a direction.  As for the story itself, I just let it flow out of me.  I don’t believe that you can control a story that already has a life of it’s own and it’s be crazy to try and a waste of time.  You’d do more fighting with your story then actually writing it, so I just let it come as it comes.

What do you do while you’re writing (i.e listen to music, TV in the background, etc.)?

I listen to music, most of the time I have headphones in my ears to block out the world.  It becomes my writing world bubble and nothing can disturb me.  If I don’t have headphones I will turn on some music or let a movie play in the background, as long as there isn’t a bunch of people running around making a lot of noise.

What annoys you the most when you are trying to write?

Having the misfortune of not having a pair of headphones.  When people run around me making a lot of unnecessary noise.  AKA:  Screaming kids.  I know they can’t help it, but grrr… I end up moving to another room, at times, changing from computer to paper.

If you have finished a fic, what was your feeling on it?

I haven’t finished any fic yet, but I am very happy and excited when I finish each chapter.

Who are your favorite characters in the TVD Fandom to write?

Jeremy Gilbert, Elena Gilbert, Damon Salvatore, Bonnie Bennett, Alaric Saltzman

Why?

Jeremy is obvious, hot hot, and he can fight, so it’s natural that I would love to write about him.  Jeremy and Elena have been through so much, so I usually write them together.  Elena as a vampire was very refreshing, because she became a stronger character, so it gave me more exciting story options.  Damon Salvatore is a very complex character.  He went from seemingly evil to becoming one of the strongest, most loyal people on the show.  

Most of his problems are because of his brother and Katherine, so I learned to love him.  I was so happy when Elena chose him instead of Stefan.  I like the whole family thing of Damon taking care of Elena and Jeremy.  Bonnie Bennett is a sweet, loyal, strong personality with kick ass witch powers and determination.  She brought Jeremy back from the dead and gave up her own life to do it.  

Even as a ghost she’s there for the betterment of her friends.  (Yeah, I’m a little behind on the show, but it’s still good stuff.)  I also look forward to seeing what happens, relationship wise with Jeremy and Bonnie.  They belong together.  Alaric Saltzman, is hot hot hot… just saying, but he’s more than that.  

If he wasn’t hot I would most likely still be writing about him, because he really is an awesome character.  All of the things that he went through to find out about his wife’s death.  The struggle he had with developing a second, evil, personality and the fact that he became a vampire along the way of trying to kill vampires.  He’s also the one guy that Damon became best friends with even though the two of them first hated each other and Damon even killed him once or twice.  Because of Alaric, Damon reached a new level of transformation in his personality and I appreciate that.

Now, I can’t help myself, but I like to ‘go there’ and write things that are not very pleasant for the characters and these personalities are the ones that I find the most fun to torture.  I don’t like to write them being tortured to death, but I like to take them through a journey where they are forced to deal with things that they don’t like and I like to write about their transformation and about the lessons they learn along the way.  It’s even more fun to write a continuance, a story after the first one where they are already transformed, because they are stronger and more knowledgeable and can deal with things they didn’t used to be able to deal with.  I love the shock or impressed reaction from their friends and family.  They go from being these weak, helpless people, to a modern day powerhouse leader in their own life.

I wrote all of that to explain to you just the way I think about characters and why I choose them to write about.  I don’t just choose random characters and see what I come up with.  I have to have respect and appreciation for them as they are.  Or, they just have to be devious or vulnerable enough for me to play with them and see what I can do for their future.

Who are your least favorite characters in the TVD Fandom to write?

Stefan Salvatore

Why?

He’s one of those characters that has done more bad than good and he keeps on making the same mistakes.  Like, if human blood comes in to play and he loses control he can’t help himself.  He freaking fed off people until he ripped their heads off.  I believe they called him the shredder or something like that.. no.. it was the ripper.  *shudders*  When Elena chose Stefan and not him he freaks out, turns off his humanity switch, and guess what?  He becomes the ripper…on purpose.  He whines and complains and soaks in his self pity about the things he’s done as the ripper and eventually people help him work through it and then he throws it all away and does it on purpose.  My sympathy for him is gone.  He’s a bad guy in good guys clothing.  My least favorite type of character and person in the world.

What is your favorite scene or story you have written and why?

My favorite story would have to be the one I am working on right now.  It’s a slash fan fiction and it’s based on Supernatural.  It’s my favorite, because I kept to the true character personalities.  The title is called Shame and Game.  You can try and guess why 😉 or read it here:  https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10374476/1/Shame-and-Game

Read the reviews to the story here:  https://www.fanfiction.net/r/10374476/

What is the most difficult story or scene you have written, and why?

I can’t think of any scenes that have been difficult for me.  I don’t have a problem with detail.  My stories write themselves.  Now, if I try to write anything without being inspired, then the entire experience feels likes I’m wading through sludge.  That’s why I usually begin my writing experience by looking at inspirational images, listening to music, watching music videos, or writing something unrelated to my project to open my mind.  It’s the most effective way for me.  I always have headphones in my ears, listening to music.  Or, if it’s quiet I put some music on the radio or use the satellite music channels on my t.v. to get me in the mood.

Do you see any characteristics in the characters you write?  

I basically try to stick with the characters actual personality. Sometimes, I’ll throw stuff like that in if I feel it will work, but each character is different. Occassionally, I’ll write about those characters that do similar thing unknowingly. That goes with all my characters.

Which ones and whom?

N/A

What do you like most about The Vampire Diaries Fandom?

A Fandom is like every other Fandom.  It’s about the fan’s ranting and raving and showing their support.  I’ve seen amazing edited pictures and fan fictions.  Someone even edited a picture with Damon’s face over a beautiful sun set and put Happy Birthday on it for my birthday.  Now, that was cool.  It was very touching that someone would go through that much trouble for me.  

How would you describe your fics?

I don’t really know how to answer this other than saying that all of them are different.  Besides, main ideas in the plot or main things about the characters, I don’t like to lay out my stories, so I never know where they’re going to end up.  I say that some of them are fun and funny and others are deep and tortuous.  According to my fans, they are entertaining.  That and the fact that they make me happy to write them is all that is important.

What story would you recommend, of your own, for a new fan to start first?

I would have to say ‘Mentalist Slash Vampire’ and the reason I say that is because that is a pure fan fiction.  There is no smut or slash.  Just pure wholesome, fantasy/Patrick/Lisbon/Vanpelt/Rigsby/Cho goodness.  I stick to the characters’ personalities as much as possible and I like to see what I can do with them.  There are a few chapters and if anything it will give you a good look at my writing style.

You can read the story here:  https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7293611/1/The-Mentalist-Slash-Vampires

 

Now the HARD questions:

If you could offer a suggestion to someone who is thinking of publishing their first story, what would it be?

Make sure that your story is something that you are ecstatic about.  If you started writing it, then changed things because you didn’t think anyone would like it, then you cheated yourself.  When you write, do it to entertain yourself.  When you do that every single word is thick with your passion.  Your readers will be able to see that and feel that.  They will only enjoy your story as much as you do if you are true to yourself.  If you’re not passionate about what you’re writing then your stories will be dull and lifeless and your readers will be able to pick up on that too, because your story will most likely put them to sleep.

If you could go back in time, and give yourself one word of advice, what would you say? (No Lottery numbers or anything like that!!!)

I would tell myself to stop slacking and finish something.  It’s what I always tell myself to kick my butt in gear.  I know this statement may sound harsh to others, but if you know me and my personality, a dose of harshness mixed with a smirk and some humor actually does make me work harder.  I like to amuse myself.  When I get that warm fuzzy feeling like I want to laugh I feel better and want to write.

What 5 stories would you recommend someone read? Please list fandom, sites, and name with pairing.

1) Charmed:  It’s an adorable story with Dean Winchester/Castiel Slash Pairing.  The fandom is Diestiel.  

Read it here:  https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10302908/1/Charmed

2) Bending Supernatural Reality:  Another Dean Winchester/Castiel Slash Pairing.  The fandom is Diestiel.

5) Avengers: Casual Affair: Loki/Tony Stark Slash Pairing.  The fandom is Avenger or Iron/Ice.  This story was written with great care to blend the events of Iron Man 1 and Thor in to it.  There is also a video, which the Slash fiction was based off of.

Twilight Story Review: In the Arms of An Angel by ncbexie25

Name of Story:In the Arms of An Angel

Fandom: Twilight

Author:ncbexie25

Site:https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10281896/1/In-the-Arms-of-An-Angel

Rating (If Applicable): M

Pairing:Jasper/Bella

Description (Authors):She wanted to fly away. She did—straight into her angel’s arms. When two people who fell in love in the 1860s meet again in 2014, what happens? Jasper/Bella. Vamp/Human. Rated M.

Review:

This would happen to be Bexie’s first Non-canon I do believe and oh my god is it new and refreshing… though I have read something along the lines of the plot BUT this is definitely a new twist.

It pretty much starts out like Twilight, not the whole edward/bella thing but her leaving her mother and so on. She also has dreams of Jasper, of her AND Jasper. He was her imaginary friend growing up, or so she thought.

He is still the sexy southerner we love, covered in leather on a damn motorbike, and Bella is also a mystery, yet familiar in some OOC ways.

It is extremely well written and keeps you guessing.

So go, go take time and read!
