30 Days of Writing Meme - Days 27-28  
27. Along similar lines, do appearances play a big role in your stories? Tell us about them, or if not, how you go about designing your characters.

Uh, appearances don't play that much of a role.  I mostly try to plan my characters out before I write them. 

Though sometimes I do enjoy writing them as I go (and make sure I make notes for later).  I do this half the time and my stories become popular.  Go figure

28. Have you ever written a character with physical or mental disabilities? Describe them, and if there's nothing major to speak of, tell us a few smaller ones.

No, I haven't.  Not because I don't want to, but because that is difficult for me to write.


29. How often do you think about writing? Ever come across something IRL that reminds you of your story/characters?
30. Final question! Tag someone! And tell us what you like about that person as a writer and/or about one of his/her characters!

Geeze, that last oen reminds me of that niggling little plot bunny in me in which Alt!Ten and Rose break up when they find out their child has classic Autism.

Other than that, I have written character blind, paralysed, and missing limbs.

I don't know why I can't do it. I feel like I would insult someone because (I'll admit) I'm not that sensative. That's one group I don't have the heart to offend.

That would have been interesting. Would Alt!Ten have kept the baby?

The Doctor loves children. I think he'd love his child no matter what may be wrong physically, mentally or behaviourly.

I think it would be Rose with the problem. All this time to get the Doctor, left with a copy, and the copy can't even give her a decent, genius child...

I insult people daily even if I don't mean to. And it's a good way to pick out hypocrites. I had one person who thinks my story Safe haven was unrealistic because a) Rose wouldn't do that to anyone, b) Alt!Ten would be able to fight her off because he's the strong male type and c) it was just plain wrong.

Plain wrong I get. I like writing plain wrong. It's a challenge. And I like to try to do it as right as I can too, without having gone through the situation.

Meanwhile this EXACT same person, wrote the following scenario for a story:

Alt!Ten, because he's evil and wrong and made of blood and fire and rage, rapes and bashes Rose almost to death, just so the real Doctor could come back magically into that reality to save Rose from his evil self. Romance and sex happen, so does magical!perfect!babies.

There will be no sex in my story. There will be no romance in my story. There will be lots of emotional/mental/physical pain as alt!Ten heals himself as best he can. And, unlike in my story Help! he won't manage it well. Or as fast. He is going to be scared of women, including the one who got him out. and Martha. He's already suffering erectile problems, and will find the damage Rose did to that part of his anatomy...a bit difficult to accept.

Help! is about trauma reaction and how people may or may not deal with it. Safe Haven is my rape story PTSD fic.

I was expecting people to be pissed at Safe haven. But to be pissed on the account that it s Rose being the abuser instead of Alt!Ten is stupid.

At least no idiot has yet to tell me that the story is totally not true because women can't rape men...which is something someone told me when I was writing Someone to Call Friend

I guess there is some things I will willing insult and some I won't. But I do insult without meaning to also.

Meanwhile this EXACT same person, wrote the following scenario for a story:

Alt!Ten, because he's evil and wrong and made of blood and fire and rage, rapes and bashes Rose almost to death, just so the real Doctor could come back magically into that reality to save Rose from his evil self. Romance and sex happen, so does magical!perfect!babies.


Seriously? If that were so, didn't the Tenth Doctor say that is copy was just like his ninth? So why didn't the Ninth Doctor do the same thing his copy supposedly did?

And there are no such thing as perfect babies.

You are continuing "Safe Haven"? I was wondering if you were. I enjoyed the first chapter.

There will be no sex in my story. There will be no romance in my story. There will be lots of emotional/mental/physical pain as alt!Ten heals himself as best he can. And, unlike in my story Help! he won't manage it well. Or as fast. He is going to be scared of women, including the one who got him out. and Martha. He's already suffering erectile problems, and will find the damage Rose did to that part of his anatomy...a bit difficult to accept.

This is going to be in "Safe Haven"? If so, I feel sorry for him. I don't blame him about being afraid of women. Jackie and Martha have a lot of work ahead.

Now I got it into my head about Rose doing something to alt!Ten for my doctor_who100 table. Don't know what yet; but something. Won't be what you are doing. More mellow.

I was expecting people to be pissed at Safe haven. But to be pissed on the account that it s Rose being the abuser instead of Alt!Ten is stupid.

Rose fans just hate it when we do something like that to their "angel". They would want it another way around.

At least no idiot has yet to tell me that the story is totally not true because women can't rape men...which is something someone told me when I was writing Someone to Call Friend.

Women can be rapists. Women just don't want to think that it was possible. Others would be in denial.

I'll get back to you after I look at that story and the review.
