Where are you from (Country and/or State)?

How did you get into the Mag7 fandom?
Believe it or not, I fell into it. I was surfing the net looking for TV shows and found one for Mag7. Then I found the Blackraptor, followed by other websites, and began devouring the stories.

How long have you been writing Mag7 fanfiction?
Since Oct. 2001

How has your writing changed since you first started?
It’s a lot clearer. The main plot holds up much better and the characters are more mine than fandom.

Is this your only fandom, your major fandom or one of the many?
It is the only fandom I write in.

What is it about this fandom that you like?
I like the characters and the diverse placements of said characters (i.e.: all the AU’s) The characters lend themselves to almost any type of plot and situation.

Did you like the Old West before Mag7 or did that come afterwards?
I grew up on westerns. Gene Audry, John Wayne, Clint Eastwood were my heroes growing up. I felt the same way of John Wayne’s death as most people did about Elvis’. To me it was a sad ending to a great era. The western shows I loved most were: The Big Family (just gotta love Heath!) and High Chaparral.

Did you see the show before you got into the fandom or after, or haven’t you seen the show yet?
I watched the show first. I didn’t even know what fandoms were until the series had long since ended.

What do you think about the show opposed to the fandom? Is the show your main interest and the fandom comes after or the other way around and why?
That is a hard question. I enjoyed the show very much and would have liked to have seen it continued and certain minor characters developed more, like Nettie and Mrs. Potter. The fandom, though, is also as intriguing and entertaining. There is so much diversity out there, that no two stories are truly alike. True, some stories may have the same central event happening in them (Ezra getting hurt or feeling pushed out) but the storytelling is different as well as the conclusion.

What are you working on right now?
Nothing. I was in the midst of fixing my one and only crossover, but RL came out of nowhere and knocked me off my feet and left me totally unbalanced. When I get back on course, I intend to post my story and then begin on my next Avalon story. I also have several story ideas for my 7B series, and a couple of others that are new AU’s. I have plot bunnies harvesting at an amazing rate. I believe they multiply faster than real bunnies. LOL

How and where do you write?
I usually have a main thought and then I sit down and begin writing a story around it. I also, have been know to just sit down and start writing and let it come at will. I write at home (sometimes at work...shhhh. Let’s not tell)

What’s the hardest part about writing in this fandom?
I don’t see a hard part about it.

Why do you write?
It gives me the ability to release my feelings, thoughts and ideas that normally would be kept secret.

What writers do you think you've been influenced by?
TwylaJane and Heather F for sure. They are both such great writers. I also enjoy Tipper’s and Vi’s work. If I sat and listed all the authors, we would fill too many pages.

What advice would you offer to beginning writers?
Don’t be afraid to post and that it is all right if your first story tanks. Everyone has to begin somewhere. This fandom is pretty good about accepting new authors. I like that.

Where do you get your inspiration for your stories from?
Mostly Real Life. Or TV. The Discovery, History and TLC channels are great for inspiration.

Do you read any of the other AU’s (ATF, LB and so on) out there and do you have a favourite?
I hate to name any personal favourites because there is a lot that I haven’t seen or read and therefore it would be unfair to the authors not to mention them. Although, Twyla Jane’s and Jaye’s Little Ezra stories are quite good. Far and few between (hint hint) but good.

What do you look for as a reader of fanfiction?
Storyline, some basis of reality, (if a guy is shot four times they really don’t have the ability to run a twenty mile chase), continuity.

Do you think there's anything missing in the fandom? Types of stories or certain characters that you'd like to see more of?

Are there any characters or situations that you don't think you'll ever write?

Who’s your favourite character and why?
Ezra! I just believe there is so much to his character that wasn’t revealed in the show and he’s fun to hurt. <eg>

Who’s your second favourite character and why?
Hmmmm. That’s a hard one. I like all the others pretty much equally (if written properly) after Ezra.

Who’s your favourite bad guy and why?
Anyone who hurts any of the seven, because the “family” comes back and defends the fallen one (or two, or three) and kicks their backside. The seven doesn’t stand for anyone other than themselves hurting their family members.

What’s your favourite episode and why?
Another hard one. I haven’t watched them in awhile, but I would have to say Chinatown. We get to see a side of Ezra that shows he isn’t always out for the money and that he does have the ability to care and protect the “innocent”

What’s your favourite story and why?
To hard to name

Any favourite author?
Again too hard to name. There are just so many talented authors out there that it would be unfair to me and the writer’s who work hard putting their stories out there to name just one.

What storyline would you most have liked to see in season 3?
More about Buck’s past perhaps. We know the least about him.

If you could change one thing about the show, what would it be?
It would have lasted longer.
