TVD Interview with SuckerforDelena

damon elena

1) For the record and the fans, what’s your name?

My name is Twisha.

2) How long have you been writing?

I just started writing in February 2014.

3) What inspires you to write?

Well, this may be first, but a writer I met here on FanFiction pushed me to write. I read and reviewed her stories, and we became fast friends. She told me I have that passion. If I decided to write I would do really good. I didn’t believed her at first. I was absolutely reluctant to write but she told me to have faith. I did, and here we are. She was the reason I wrote my first fiction. Then I gained some confidence and continued writing.

4) I know some writers don’t really care if they receive reviews as long as they have readers, but how do you feel when you get a review?

I am not one of them. I just love reviews and CRAVE them. If anyone of my chapter gets less reviews, I start freaking out and thinking that I did a bad job writing the chapter and that’s why less people are reviewing it. I get discouraged but don’t stop writing (I may take longer than usual to update) as I don’t think that’s fair to the ones that are spending their time and reading. I have also came to know that reviews are an important part but they aren’t the only part. My favorite writer here, ridingdamon, have written a whole lot of stories and many of them haven’t received more than 1 review. So I don’t let them stop me from writing.

5) Most writers have something playing in the background when they write, what is the one thing that you have playing while you write?

I don’t play anything while I write. When I write I need silence and space. I usually write only when I am alone. Though there is one thing that I need when I write. That is net. I can not write without it. If you ask me to write a FanFiction where there is only Damon I can write it as I have literally memorised his character and dialogue. But if there is someone else involved, like Elena or Stefan or anyone, I have to read about then, get the feel and all that you know. I do research on them and then only am able to write.

6) What pairings do you enjoy writing and why?

I like writing DELENA. I mainly love them as I LOVE DAMON MORE THAN HELL. I could do anything for him. I have like thousands pictures of him and files of all his dialogues from season 1 to season 5, even if it is just a ‘yeah’. I can tell you anything about him. I follow him as Ian and Damon both. I know everything about him (You can try me). I am also thinking on writing a Ethan and Emma fic. It won’t be a Vampire Diaries fiction. (Obviously)

7) What pairings do you absolutely REFUSE to write and why?

I refuse to write Stelena. I just love Damon so much and I also believe that Elena doesn’t really loved Stefan, night have in starting season, but not after that. You might be imagining why is that. It’s cause I always believe if you love two person you don’t truly love the person you fell for first. If she was really in love with Stefan she wouldn’t have fallen for Damon.

8) Canon or Non Canon?

I haven’t ever written a canon. And also like non-canon.

TVD Interview with Jessica Chartier

TVD: Delena

Okay lets do this!

First question what’s your penname?

My full penname is: camaros-and-dopplegangers but on fictionpad and a couple other places with character limits its just camaroganger

How long have you been writing?

I’ve been dabbling in fanfiction for over 7 years in general; but in Vampire Diaries it’s been about 3 years

What inspired you to start writing in the Vampire Diaries Fandom?

I wasn’t very happy with where the show was going. I think that’s why a lot of people start writing fanfiction. I had a lot of “what if” ideas in my head

Which pairing do you write?

I mainly write Damon/Elena, but I do have a Tyler/Elena story I’m working on

Tyler/Elena? Now that’s an interesting pairing! I don’t think I’ve read, let alone seen, any of that pairing!

There are a few of them out there, you just have to look really hard…and of course, they aren’t nearly as popular as Delena or Stelena are

I’ve got my work cut out for me then! I want to read some Tylena! And yeah that’s true but there should be more of the other pairings

Who’s your favorite to write?

There should be more pairings. To me, that’s the whole point of writing fanfic. Writing the stuff that will NEVER be on TV, or was in the books. My favorite to write has to be Tyler/Elena simply because there is so little of it out there. I can be as creative as I want. With Damon/Elena there are set “standards” that I feel everyone agrees on for stories that at some point nothing is 100% original anymore

Exactly! That is what fanfic is all about. That’s what I write what they call Non Canon, OOC, and all that good jazz. I don’t write many in character stories or canon pairings

I do a lot of OOC, even if I’m writing canon pairings. I have to have originality in what I write. I like to bring it back to my Twilight writing days, BEFORE the movies. We were never really told what Peter and Char looked like, but for some reason, everyone decided to go with the same couple of basic descriptions for them. That’s not “fan-fiction” to me.

I agree!

I know some writers don’t care if they get a review as long as they have readers. But how does it make you feel to have someone, a stranger, leave you a review on something you worked hard on?

I love it! I had hit a place with my Tyler/Elena story where I was getting NO feedback at all, and it was rough. Someone from twitter who doesn’t even watch the show took time out of her day, and read AND reviewed every chapter for me. It made me happy. I don’t care about the reviews, that’s like a professional writer only caring about the money. I have a story to tell, and as long as it’s getting told that’s what’s important. The reviews are just the “bonus Jonas”

Great answer and truer than most people realize!

When I was younger I went by the whole “10 reviews before I update” thing, and I just wasn’t happy with myself. I became addicted to the reviews

Some writers have background noise (i.e. music, tv, etc) do you have background noise? If so what?

I have music. I live and breathe for music. I have different playlists for every story or possible story that I’m writing

Sounds like me lol That’s exactly what I do on spotify…have them all labeled.

Yeah. and each playlist fits the mood for the story. So, my Tyler/Elena playlist is all country music because it takes place down south. The Damon/Elena playlist is an angst-fest because that’s what that story is right now

What Vampire Diaries pairing do you absolutely RUFUSE to write and why?

I will NOT write anyone with Bonnie, because I don’t like her. I think she is selfish and in general an awful friend. I’ve thought this since S1, and even though she has had redeeming moments, the damage has been done in my eyes. Also, everyone pairs her with Damon, and that’s really weird.

Bonnie was awful I’ll give ya that one. I have read some Bonnie/Damon and even though they were well written it’s still weird.

I mean, I get it that this last season her and Damon were stuck together, but…they HATE each other.

Canon or Non Canon?

I feel like I always lean more towards Non Canon, I’m very picky with Canon stuff

Tell us about you and your writing other than what you’ve mentioned…this is where you have the floor!

Like I said, I started writing twilight fanfiction, like i feel most people have, and it really helped me grow my writing style and helped me figure out what I do and don’t like. For example, I don’t do well writing in first person; so I basically ONLY write 3rd person (unless it’s a flashback and then that’s first person). That also helped me learn my writing process. I can’t use an outline. I either stray off of it so far my story has NOTHING to do with what it originally should have, or I try to stick to it so rigidly that my story lacks depth and originality. I like to write as organically as possible, but I’m a perfectionist and cant go more than a couple of paragraphs without proofreading and editing.

Oh wow!!!! Time always tends to teach us things. Especially us writers!

So glad you agreed to this interview! Thank you for taking part and answering my annoyingly questions! You ROCK! Look forward to reading your work!

Thank you so much for reaching out to interview me! This was my first time and I was honored.

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

What is your go to food for comfort? Breakfast burritos…makes me feel closer to my dad who passed away.

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!!!

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