Interview for TexanLady

This has been an interview I have been wanting to read and do for a long time!!!!

Basic information.

Can you please tell the people reading this your name?

Texanlady.  I have had my fair share of hate mail over the years, and more than a few threats, so I don’t feel comfortable giving out my real name.

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

On my blogspot.  Nyc posts everytihing, so I’m not sure what medium she uses.  I’m not very good with technology.  I just write it.  

What do you prefer, Tea or Coffee?

Iced sweet tea.  Every Texan drinks it.

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

I don’t drink alcohol anymore, and my all time favorite drink is a root beer float.

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

I tried trashcan punch at a college party once.  Vomited all over my date.  Shame.  He was so hot.  Needless to say he didn’t ask for another date.

What foods do you love?

Anything with meat pretty much.

What is your go to food for comfort?

Buttered spaghetti.  My mom made it for me when I was little, and it is what I always want when I’m sick or upset.

What do you like to snack when writing?

No food when writing.  It messes with my flow.

Is there a scent that says home to you?

Horse manure.  When I smell it I remember all the good memories I’ve had with my family in the barn.  We spent far more time there than inside the house.

Is there a scent you wish you never smelled ever?

Burning hair. 

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

Narnia.

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

When I was 13.

What music do you like?

Blues is my all time favorite.

Is there a genre or song you hate?

Pretty much any of the crap coming out nowadays.  I don’t think music should be made by computers.  Give me a singer with a mic with a pianist and I’m happy.

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

I’m obsessed with Etsy.

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

Why did you start writing?

Elementary school.  I wrote my first short story in 5th grade.

What do you enjoy the most about it?

That I can make anything happen.  

What do you like least about it?

Writer’s block.  She be a heartless bitch.

That first time hitting publish, how did you feel?

Proud.  Good or bad, I’d put myself out there.  It takes courage.

Where do you get your inspiration?

My dreams.

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

I write my ideas down in a little journal, but when it comes to putting chapters together I take out my laptop and have at.

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

I pretty much just write.  I take the ideas from my pocket journal and run with them.

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

I listen to music.

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

Interruptions.

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

Satisfied.  

What are your favorite fandoms to write?

Pretty much True Blood.  I would like to work in other fandoms, but since I’m trying to get my original novel finished I don’t have time to branch out.

Who are your favorite characters to write?

Eric. 

Why?

Because he’s a drop dead sexy Nordic god.

Who are your least favorite characters to write?

Bill. 

Why?

He’s such a rat.

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

My favorite story I wrote was my Sookie Tortures a Viking series.  Most of it was hot and sultry, but the last installment meant a great deal to me.

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

The scene in TA where Eric tries to force Sookie into wanting him and triggers her memories of being molested.  It took me to a dark place.

Do you see any characteristics in the characters you write?

A great deal.  

Which ones and whom?

It’s more in my original characters.  In my True Blood stories I’m trying to keep them as true to their characters as possible, but in my own work I base many of my characters off of family and friends.

What do you like most about your preferred fandom?

Did I mention how sexy Alexander Skarsgard is?

How would you describe your fics?

Sex and angst.

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

The Arrangement. 

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 you are writing for the right reasons.  If you’re writing for reviews or money you won’t last.  The nasty things people say will have you hightailing it with your tail tucked between your legs.  So write what YOU want, and share it with others.  As long as you’re enjoying the story you’re telling that is all that matters.

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!!!)

It gets better.

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

All the stories I would recommend were taken down.  I haven’t had the chance to read much fanfiction in the past year.

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

Why do I write, and I write because it not only makes me happier, but it makes my world better.

Review for All of Me by bellapaige88

 

So I spent this past week not feeling well.  And ended up watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  And got hooked into SkyeWard….

 Name of Story: All of Me

Fandom: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. + Captain America Crossover

Author: bellapaige88

Site: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10075481/1/All-Of-Me

Rating (If Applicable): M

Pairing: G. Ward/Skye P. Coulson/M. May

Status: Complete

Description (Authors): 

This story is about Skye discovering who she really is and where she came from. What her 0-8-4 status really means. The whole team will be a part of this fic with their own little moments. Skyeward, FitzSimmons, Philinda and Clintasha moments. … enjoy 🙂 Later chapters involve CapHill and Pepperony’ And other Avengers.


Review: 

So if you watch AoS, you may know why I went looking for SkyeWard fics.  And if you haven’t watched past season 1, you may want to skip this one…

For this is SPOILERS for the show!

Review for The Arrangement by TexanLady & nyc snowbird

 

This is one of the most controversial stories I have ever read.  It is NOT completed, but holy cow, no matter how long they make you wait, you jump to read the updates.

TA clean Red Header flair

 Name of Story: The Arrangement

Fandom: TB

Author: TexanLady & NYC Snowbird

Site: http://thearrangementtb.blogspot.com/search/label/Chapter%20001

Rating (If Applicable): M

Pairing: Eric/Sookie

Status: WIP

Description (Authors): 

Bill has been taken to Mississippi. Sookie has no choice but to turn to Eric for help. Seeing the chance to make Sookie his, Eric offers her an arrangement. Sookie learns that not only is nothing ever as simple as it seems, but she finds that there is nothing Eric won’t do to claim her. And apparently he’s not alone in the belief she is his. The Gods of old believe it just as much!


Review: 

Have you ever read a story that made you cry, not once but a couple of times for a character?  Made you completely pissed at the other character, but find redeeming features where you keep reading?

That even after a second reading, you find yourself still crying at the same parts?  And only after reading it 4 times, do you realize that though you want to prepare for what is coming, you end up putting down the story, take a breath, then read on.

This is that story.

It starts literally when Sookie walks out of the bathroom in the restaurant and Bill is gone.  This Eric is not the amnesiac Eric in any form or fashion.  This is an Eric who we met at the bar and wanted Sookie for himself no matter what.

Review for Marriage of Inconvenience by Queen of Area 5

I know I did her before, but I went back and ended up rereading this story.  And since I checked this site, there was no mention of this story anywhere.

So here it is!

 

 Name of Story: A Marriage of Inconvenience

Fandom: SVM

Author: Queen of Area 5 (Click to read her interview)

Site: https://queenofareafive.wordpress.com/a-marriage-of-inconvenience-index/

Rating (If Applicable): M

Pairing: Eric/Sookie

Status: Complete

Description (Authors): 

William T. Compton thought it would be an easy mission: procure the telepath using any means necessary without permanently tying her to him. However her husband, the Sheriff of Area 5, will make sure his task is not easily accomplished.


Review: 

I went back and reread this to keep in the momentem of rereading some of the old stories.  And once I started, I remembered why I love this woman.

She weaves a story that grabs you and drags you whether you like it or not to read, and peppers it with some beautiful imagery (and a sexy Sheriff Viking pillaging his Wife).

Review for Ethereal Redemption by Midnight Opheliac

I started to read this, just having the urge.  It took me a couple of tries to find her (I forgot the c at the end of the name).

This author made the move to WordPress due to Fanfiction deleting her entire story with it’s 1000+ reviews.

Thankfully she had most of the chapters and with the help of 4Padfoot, she made a site to keep them ready for her.

 Name of Story: Ethereal Redemption

Fandom: TB

Author: Midnight Opheliac

Site: https://midnightopheliac.wordpress.com/stories/true-blood/chapters/

Rating (If Applicable): M

Pairing: Eric/Sookie; Godric/OC

Status: WIP

Description (Authors): 

Set at the end of season 4, Sookie chooses Eric over Bill but with Russell Edgington free from his concrete grave they’re going to need all the help they can get, and that help just so happens to be in Sin City. Godric didn’t meet the sun in season 2 and his human life starts to catch up with him, introducing someone who can help Sookie understand who and what she is.

Rating: 18+ (language, violence and sexual content)


Review: 

This story starts out with what should have happened with the whole travesty of Season 4 ending.

And by doing so, opens you up to a whole new world, where Gods and Goddesses are active, the AP makes an appearance and you get a cast of people that are absolutely amazing.

All done to the backdrop of Las Vegas, with Caesar’s Palace being our hotel of choice.

Review for Saint and Sinners by EricIzMine

 

So I told you guys I would do this one.  the only problem is by the time I was done, I was so sad that I needed to walk away for a little bit.

Don’t get me wrong, the story is funny and awesome.  But knowing that I will not get to read anything new snuck up and smacked me.

However… Read on.  I promise you this is MORE than worth it!

 Name of Story: Saints & Sinners

Fandom: SVM

Author: EricIzMine

Site: https://ericizmine.com/index/saintssinners/

Rating (If Applicable): M

Pairing: Eric/Sookie

Status: Complete

Description (Authors): 

All Human story… Eric Northman comes to Bon Temps to speak to Corbett Stackhouse and finds Sookie first.

  • “This story is all kinds of good. It’s hilarious and it keeps you on your toes.  There’s a criminal/mystery plot that will remind you of Criminal Minds, and it’s all — that means 100% kit and kaboodle — in Eric’s point of view. I have been known to stop everything I’m doing to read a chapter of S&S. Not to mention reading chapter 21 while waiting in line to see Alice in Wonderland“ –Sapfirerose

Review: 

Ok, throw away all ideas of the SVM world to read this.  Truly.  There are some things that are the same:

  • Bill is a douche.
  • Alcide is a good guy

And that is about it.

Truly!!!!!

Review for Belong to You by RandomDarkness

Pairing: Eric/Sookie

Status: Complete

Description (Authors): 

Set directly after 9 Crimes spoilers!, Vampire politics have backed Eric into a corner, and Sookie masterminds a plan that will rally the town of Bon Temps and go down in history… One way or another. Chapter 16 up. ALL done!


Review: 

Belong to You is one of those stories I read when I was just starting, and it grabbed my attention.

Belong to You deals with an alternative to Season 3’s ending.  And I will say this; it is freaking awesome!!!!   It shows what can happen if people are willing to THINK first!
