What is your favorite Doggett/Scully fanfic that you've written? Why?
I think my favorite has to be 'Demonicus - Scully's Thoughts' Its very short and sweet but I think with this short story I was able to inject a touch of DSR into an actual episode with D and S. Basically whenever I watch that scene in that episode again, my Fic just comes into my head and I can imagine them being Scully's real thoughts and it makes me chuckle, I hope that was the same for everyone who happened read my fic. I also quite Like the fics I wrote under my 'kay49x' author title, my fics then were very pre season 9 finale where as The fics I've written under 'LiveInTheLight' and 'LiveInTheGreenLight' are more post and past season 9. (apologies for changing my author names so many times. kept getting emails for people with similar names for their email addresses!)
Tell us about your writing process. How do you begin? Where do your ideas come from? How do you come to finalizing your story?
You know when your watching a really great Rom Com and it looks like the two leads are NEVER going to end up together....well in movies they always do get together but as for Scully and Doggett, its ongoing....there is NO ENDING! and it was frustrating, we want these two, fantastically 'perfect for each other' people to fall in love and live happily ever after but it was never going to happen. It was FRUSTRATING! so I found a group of wonderful like minded people and we all decided to help each other out and draw up fantasies of our own personal possible endings! Sometimes I steal ideas from these Rom Com movies but usually I start by deciding how I want to start, then how I want to finish and then the middle bit is just something to have fun with. A Few times Ive got bored of a story I've written, either that or I see no great way of ending a story so I'd just leave and start a new one, maybe using similar ideas in the next, or whilst writing the next i'll discover a way to finish an old story. Coming from a very creative background via work and education if find it quite easy to use my imagination.
What can you tell us about the story picked for the Fanfic of the Month?
("It Started With A Kiss")
Well twas new year of course and no one had written anything for a while it seemed, I was feeling down because I was dateless for yet another year haha! I find xmas and new year so stressful and writing really helps me to relax so I decided to create a story that personally I would love to happen to me one new years night but as that looks bleak (men are asses!) I played it out using these great characters instead. haha. Ive secretly always wanted a fanfic of the month so whoo hoo and thankyou!
Do you have any tips for beginning Doggett/Scully authors?
Yes! Ive read a few stories that start off so great and imaginative then very quickly I can tell the author has got bored or has writers block and they want to finish it off as soon as possible. DONT! Just leave your story and either keep your ideas and start a fresh or come back to it, you'll get there in the end. Also I understand xfiles, especially Doggett days are long gone but I think these characters will remain interesting til the day I die so more writers please! I love to read new stories, Its like episodes are still airing and the plots and characters are in our hands! haha!
What is your favorite Doggett/Scully fanfic (that you did not write)? Why is it your favorite?
"Everything But The Girl" - Anne Hedonia, has to be at least one of my faves! its just a sweet lovely story...not too explicit (I'm definitely more of a PG13 fan than an NC17) and Its just a really good piece of fic! I love Anne's 'C'mere' as well as she captures Doggett so well. She's a great writer
Do you have a favorite fanfic author? If so, who? Why?
Dana Doggett of course is one!!
Tony....to name a few, there are a lot of fab stories and authors and I've read so many its hard to keep track but those people have definitely stood out.
