TVD Interview: cloemarrie

Hello! Thanks for allowing me to interview you!!! I really appreciate it, and I’m loving the chance to have other fandoms find our spot.

Thankfully, we have been invited into the non-cannon awards. This gives us the chance to have our favorite couple be spotlighted, for NOT being Canon. Funny huh?

So, I have a few questions to ask. Some of these questions are to get to know you, the writer, better. Then I will send over an interview where you pick a character out of one of your stories, and you can interview them. I thought it would be fun and a way for you to feed the fans some information about that character.

If you wish to include a banner for the character, or for yourself, please contact me and I will be happy to help you out.

So we are going to start out with some basic information for all of you.

Can you please tell the people reading this your name? Margaret Williams but everyone in the fandom knows me by Cloe Marrie

Where do you like to post, and can you give us the site of your preferred medium? I post on ffn, fp, and now TWCS I prefer ffn because its much easier and it’s a site I’m used to…but I may change that..not sure yet

What do you prefer, Tea or Coffee? Coffee!!!

What is your favorite beverage of choice? And if alcoholic and mixed, what are the ingredients? Coffee in the morning, tea or water in the afternoon

What is your funny story about trying something to drink and it rocked your boat and/or sucked? The first time I tried hard liquor was when I was I think 18…I know underage….but back then they weren’t that strict…anyway my brother said he could out drink me so we kept taking shots of vodka, Jack Daniels, and rum. I out drank him but I was so messed up that I thought my brother was screwing a tree lol

What foods do you love? Comfort foods and seafood, i love chinese and mexican food but i’m trying to stay away from fattening foods lol

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

If you could go at any point in time, which would it be? I would like to go back to 2000….before 911 happened and before i’d gotten married. Plus back then i had a chance to be with someone I really wanted to be with but I blew it

What music do you like? Before writing I would say country and oldies but now that I became serious with my writing my music is all over the place

Is there a genre or song you hate? Rap I HATE that crap

Tell us something about yourself that you think your fans would love to know about: Writing has always been my passion. I wrote my first song when I was 9 years old. Back then I wanted to be a singer/songwriter. When I was 13 I received my first guitar and had a chance to go to Nashville to become a singer but my dad got sick and I wanted to be with him. I also wrote my first story/fanfiction when I was 13, gave it to my teacher, and when graduation came    I received a gold medal literature award for the story. I wrote my second book when I was married at the age of 23 (got married when i was 21) I became truly serious about writing four years ago (2010)

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

Why did you start writing? I began writing as a child because I enjoyed it but now I write because it usually relieved the stress I feel.

What do you enjoy the most about it? I enjoy the way the characters speak through me

What do you like least about it? what’s not to like about it…writing is fantastic!

That first time hitting publish, how did you feel? it felt good 🙂

Where do you get your inspiration? I get it through everyday things…movies I watch, my passed, music, having feelings for someone and not being able to tell him…just things that happen every day lol

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

Do you use an outline, rough draft or just write? most of the time I just write…I’ve tried using outlines and rough drafts but they never work for me

What do you do while you’re writing (listen to music, TV in the background, etc.)? I listen to music through headphones because if I don’t I’ll get too distracted

What annoys you the most when you are trying to write? When my family tries talking to me or they have the tv too loud and I can’t concentrate and when my phone goes off

If you have finished a fic, what was your feeling on it? i feel sad but great at the sametime

What are your favorite fandoms to write? Well atm it’s Twi but I’m trying other fandoms including VD

Who are your favorite characters to write? Non-Canon

Why? I just hate canon pairings

Who are your least favorite characters to write? From Twilight it’d have to be Edward and Bella from VD it’d have to be Klaus from TB it’d be Bill

Why? I just can’t stand them. Edward is too controlling and Bella is annoying…Klaus is too evil and Bill is vindictive

What is your favorite scene or story you have written and why? This is a bit tough…it’s out of two stories:

Regret (not posted yet) it was written for a fundraiser. It’s a VD story…Delena
Lost Freedom was written for Fage 6 it’s Bella (i know i said I couldn’t stand her but if you read it you’d understand why i wrote it) just a warning it has cheating in it

What is the most difficult story or scene you have written, and why? The most difficult scene would have to be in “Emmett Swan, Mr. McCarty” where Mr. McCarty (Emmett’s second personality) rapes and kills some women

Do you see any characteristics in the characters you write? Not really…I write them a different way every time

What do you like most about your preferred fandom? I prefer VD…I just like how much free reign I can have with them 🙂

How would you describe your fics? dark and depressing for the most part

What story would you recommend of your own for a new fan to start first? It’s out of two differnt stories: Lost Freedom or First Bite O’Hallows Night

Now the HARD questions:

If you could offer a suggestion to someone who is thinking of publishing their first story, what would it be? Do it! If you have a chance go for it! Don’t hesitate…it’s the best gift you could give yourself!

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!!!) If I could go back in time to give myself advice it’d be…don’t let others put you down! Go for your dreams and NEVER GIVE UP!!!

Tb/SVM Review: In The End

Ok.  I am not one to start off these interviews and/or reviews without subjecting myself to it.  Now, I admit, it is a little hard to review your own stories, so I got MissRissa81 to do it for me.

I will be out of town until Tuesday/Wednesday so don’t expect any updates during that time.  I have already gotten some interviews back, so I will be working on those, and for getting more of the ladies in these wonderful fandoms interviewed for you to read about them.
Here is the review for you!

in-the-end Banner

Name of Story: In The End

Fandom: True Blood

Author: Kittyinaz (Review by missrissa81)

Site: http://kittyinaz.com/true-blood/in-the-end/

Rating (If Applicable): M

Pairing: Godric/Eric/Sookie

Description (Authors): One night a pull to their very souls, calls out Eric and Godric to their future.  And that one moment, that one action, sets forth a change to the entire world. E/S/G.


Review:

In the End is one of my all-time fave fics!! It’s the story that led me to Kittyinaz, and boy am I glad it did!! This particular pairing of Eric/Sookie/Godric is spot on, I love that each of them is equally important and truly needed. I absolutely adore the dynamic between the three, the plots and banter, the mischievous Niall and his BFF Hades, and knowing that while the three stand strong and united they truly are unbeatable!!!

The villains are entertaining and devious!! I love seeing Bill attempt to woo and get to her, only to be at least three steps behind the entire time!! I’m a huge fan of the entire cast of characters, both canon and OC, and can’t speak highly enough of the fact that the characters change and evolve in a completely believable way…well believable for vampires LOL!! This is a story that I always drop what I’m doing and skip off to read the moment the update is posted!!! Love, love, love, it, more please!!!!


 

In The End is written by me, and it is due to be finished by the end of the year (Next writing period actually). This story led me into the fantastic fandom of True Blood and I never regretted it. Thanks for reading this review, and feel free to drop me a note and let me know what you think.  Our email is thenoncanonawards@gmail.com   Please put attention Kittyinaz.  Have a great week and weekend!  I will catch you on the flip side.

TB/SVM Interview: Kittyinaz

Yes.  I picked myself as the first one to torture to ask to complete the questionnaire.  I thought it would only be fair, and give my authors a chance to look over the form before they get it.

For my interviews, I have also included a character of their choice questionnaire.  I thought this may give you a chance to have some inside information on a character of their choice.  I had a quandary. See I do these on my site every other month for my characters.  So I wanted something you could only get from this one, and I looked.  I hope you enjoy reading this.

I will try to do reviews on the stories pertaining to the interviewee.  But this time, I think I will have someone else review my stories, to give a better perspective.  Not really good at reviewing my own things.  LOL!

So without further ado, here is my interview:

Basic information.

Facebook Cover 1_edited-1

Can you please tell the people reading this your name? Kittyinaz

Where do you like to post, and can you give us the site of your preferred medium? I post in AO3, Fanfiction.net, Fictionpad, TWCS. My preferred is my Website: www.kittyinaz.com

What do you prefer, Tea or Coffee? Tea. Love tea…

What is your favorite beverage of choice? And if alcoholic and mixed, what are the ingredients? Actually for me it is SodaStream. It’s a huge joke in my beta group and so on, cause I have spit up my soda’s through my nose at the antics my betas and my group get into.

What is your funny story about trying something to drink and it rocked your boat and/or sucked? Hmmm. I think it has to be when my dad decided that I needed to know how to know my tolerance levels with alcohol. Supposedly, I was a generation that couldn’t handle mine. What he forgot to take in was the fact I am only half Larrick. The other half? Well let’s just say I poured him into bed, cleaned up all the disgusting vodka (which I hate to this day) and went to bed. I still laugh on it.

What foods do you love? Italian. Then Fajitas or Tacos. But definitely Italian.

What is your go to food for comfort? Mac and Cheese. Homemade of course… Then Chicken and Dumplings and HOT banana pudding.

What do you like to snack when writing? Cheese, crackers, pepperoni, apples, anything that is snackable.

Is there a scent that says home to you? Clean linen aka bleach. I associate it with clean and it makes me feel like everything is comfy level. No idea why.

Is there a scent you wish you never smelled ever? New one!! Watermelon fermented. Gross!! Before that was skunk.

If you could visit a place, anywhere, where would it be? Anywhere huh. I’m going to go outside the world, and say I would love to visit Avalon.

If you could go at any point in time, which would it be? I would love to go back to Atlantis. I would like to know what it really is.

What music do you like? All. There is nothing I won’t not listen to.

Is there a genre or song you hate? Hmm. Not really. There is angry music, but there is a time for it. I usually just have to wait until my mood is right, and I find new songs all the time this way. Something I skipped past yesterday would be perfect for today.

Tell us something about yourself that you think your fans would love to know about: Hmmm. They know I blend my own teas, they know I am a huge music fan. I was an avid book reader, and in fact turned to Fanfiction because I broke my leg and had nothing to read. Sadly most of my favorites have retired, died or are no longer writing.

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

Why did you start writing? I was watching Alice, 2009 for the umpteenth time.   I had forayed into writing once, and I didn’t do so well. But I was working on something, finishing it while the movie was playing and the song What If by Safety Suit came on. And I wondered, what if during all those times they cut away from our main characters, things were happening to make them closer? I started writing, and the rest they say is history.

What do you enjoy the most about it? The possibilities. The chance that all those stories I tell myself to fall asleep I can come back and visit over and over. I would often change someone in my stories, and explore all the what ifs.   Hey, my brain never turns off, this allowed me to go to sleep. Maybe 2-3 hours later.

What do you like least about it? The editing for me. I write rough drafts, and then go back to edit them and add all the stuff that makes them turn from stiff cardboard cut outs to actually being living moving people. I love writing, getting the idea on paper, but editing I feel cuts into that. But for me to try to write another way doesn’t work.

That first time hitting publish, how did you feel? Sooo nervous. But… I told myself, did it matter if I get a review? Nope. I had to decide what I am working for, and it was to get these stories out on paper so I can visit the dreams and the stories themselves. Imagine my surprise that people actually like to read it!

Where do you get your inspiration? Everywhere. A song will prompt a story. Or a dream, or me thinking, what if. Lately I blame Meridian since she seems to whisper to my muses. A LOT. It is a busy place in my brain. Ask my betas. But yes, the world or even my imagination is very rich, there is inspiration everywhere.

What is your writing area like do you use computer or paper, or both? Or another medium? Computer. I can’t write as fast as I can type. When I am writing, it literally is like part of my brain turns off. Or is sidetracked. The words come pouring out to show you guys the movie playing in my head.

Do you use an outline, rough draft or just write? Rough draft. Then I go back to add all the stuff I didn’t type in to make them living. I tried many times to outline, but it never happens. I have given up. I have a whiteboard I write ideas on, and strive to hit them all.

What do you do while you’re writing (listen to music, TV in the background, etc.)? Music. Even now, I am listening to my iTunes playing. Walking on the Sun by Smash Mouth is playing. When my iTunes was not working was a major issue.

What annoys you the most when you are trying to write? Of all things, my pets. I love them all dearly, and any other time, I pet them, play with them, love on them. But when I am in the mode, it never fails that Connor wants to go out, and for some reason I am the only one in the house he tells this too. Or Morgan comes and lies down on my arm, or sits in front of the screen I am typing in. Tucker walks back and forth or something. Right now, Connor was lying by me, cause when I lean back and check what I have written, I pet him. They are not abandoned or anything, it just seems they pick the perfect time to come mess with me.

If you have finished a fic, what was your feeling on it? Sad but thrilled. Sad, because I have to leave this story. You pour your time and love into these characters, this story, and now you are done. But at the same time, my OCD relaxes, and I am thrilled to have that Completed next to the story.

What are your favorite fandoms to write? True Blood, Twilight, Alice 2009, Tin Man. But lately, Crossovers are a huge thing with me. I love to pair Bella with different characters and I like to see what she would have been like.

Who are your favorite characters to write? Bella and the male characters.

Why? I have no idea why, but I struggle with the female leads who are not Bella. I think because I connect with her, but yet I want to slap her silly. So I make her more like I would be. Males are sooo easy for me to write.

Who are your least favorite characters to write? Females but Bella

Why? Again, no clue.

What is your favorite scene or story you have written and why? Favorite story? Has to be Tin Man. Why? It is a blending of so much but I grew up with Wizard of Oz playing all the time. Then to see this remake of it, just made the whole idea take off. I am working to finish the none epic stories right now, to allow myself time to work on those like Tin Man.

What is the most difficult story or scene you have written, and why? What If. When I started it, I was in a bad place. I had so much going on in my life that was wrong, I just couldn’t be happy. So I started to write it. Now, trying to go back to it, I have issues. I don’t like Alice. Not since I wrote ED and realized some things.

Do you see any characteristics in the characters you write? Yes.

Which ones and whom? I research a lot. Hmm. Bella from Free Will is Everything trilogy anyone? The other Bella’s reflect me also. And I am a closet romantic, so my characters are also. Alice in Tea Shope (Or Bella in twilighted Tea Shoppe) is me. Well a lot. I didn’t have her bad experiences, but her family memories are based on mine.

What do you like most about your preferred fandom? The fans and writers. Alice was forgiving, and they helped. But this fandom supports each other so much. Stories are reblogged, and we all acknowledge we lead the readers to each other. I have a Rec pages, and Blogs I love. The stories I rec are heavily hit up each day.

How would you describe your fics? Romantic stories. I am a sucker for romance, and I don’t do the whole build up well I think. But once they are together, I show why the whole love thing works for them, while still working on the plot.

What story would you recommend of your own for a new fan to start first? Hmmm. I have no idea. Really! I know In The End is a favorite, and I will be working on finishing it next period of time. I have 21 stories all WIP, and no idea how many finished, one shots and so on I have. All my stories are on my WordPress as they were meant to be. Click and I do descriptions and have fun. If you join my group, Charissa will give you suggestions.

Now the HARD questions:

If you could offer a suggestion to someone who is thinking of publishing their first story, what would it be? Just do it. Don’t ask yourself the bad things, What if I don’t get any reviews, what if people laugh at me, what if no one reads it. Those are excuses. Decide that you are going to write it to share, and do it. Look at the stats on a story, they give more indications of the story than reviews.

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!!!) Write.   I always wanted to, but I lacked the courage to.

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