MW: Logan closeup

Do you use RL as inspiration for your FF?

I can think of a couple things that I {consciously} wrote up into my stories, other than the occasional sex snippet heh ;-) Like the scene in the J2 fic "Love story of Inanimate Objects" where a lost-in-thought Kyra steps on a burning cigarette stub, barefoot.. I did that once. Hurt like hell :D The incident in the X-Men series "In the beginning" where Scott is throwing up stretched out across Logan's lap and naughty Logan uses the opportunity to feel the poor boy up - okay its a little funny now but back when I was a teenager and still new to booze, I sure didn't appreciate getting groped in the middle of a barf-attack heh. Hm, what else.. the SPN story Webster was written for my very dear friend Vince who'd been forced to give away his cat (also called Webster) after discovering he was allergic :( I loved the Renaissance Mayflower hotel in DC so much I decided to set Shipwrecked (J2) in there. In "Won't let Texas get in the way", the neat little trick Harley does, grabbing beer out of an icebox - a dog I once knew could do that. *sighs*

Yeah.. immortalized some of my most memorable memories in fanfiction, I have. Apologies for channeling Yoda. I'd really love to hear some of your real-life inspirations?

Fun Yoda is :)

I do that quite often with my writing, I find it's always easier to write something you know about or experienced, and somehow things that happen to me end up in my writing sometimes without me even realizing it!

I know right? I explored the Renaissance Mayflower for like a whole two weeks and don't know why, I started to imagine hooker!Jared in there, walking around feeling lost and out of place, running into confident uber-rich CEO!Jensen. That's how the idea for Shipwrecked came from hehe.
Hear ya about the subconscious writing. I think that happens to most writers, amateur or otherwise :)
