Her Royal Highness ponders the nature of writing as an ongoing process.

It's funny, I recently made the same anology to falling in love. This whole Avengers thing has had that feel to it, that can't-read-fast-enough, can't-stop-thinking-about-it feeling, like a new crush. I remember it with my two previous fandoms - my serious fandoms, not my brief fandom friendships and flirtations - and also, I am having the same feeling that I am betraying my old fandom with the new one.

I'm a serial monogamist. I fought so hard not to lose LOTR RPS, but I haven't had a real thought about it in years, despite still-lingering guilt about Throw Away. I'm having the same feeling of SG-1 slipping through my fingers. And the same feeling of resistance to writing in the new fandom that I had when LOTR was slipping away.

It makes me think about muses again. Not only do stories seem to write themselves, but also writing can feel like a relationship with a person.

It's funny how writing is this odd mix of what's under your control and what isn't.

I wrote journalism for years, and that was very much under my control; very thinky and logical.

Fiction is so not like that.

And yet, you still have to get your butt in the chair and give yourself goals or it's so easy to dither.

I hear you on changing fandoms. Back in LOTR, I had no idea changing fandoms was ever possible for me. I'm not looking forward to the day that I leave SG1 behind forever, but I suppose it's bound to happen.

I fell in love with Due South with that same intensity, but I don't want to write it!

So I don't know. Never say never, is all I've learned.

Thank you for being here, and thank goodness I can read Avengers if you write it! I was sad when so many SGA people went to Supernatural, a fandom I just can't get into though I tried.

So it's nice to still share fandoms.

LOL, I am so cold hearted compared to you. I have no guilt. If I can possibly get into the fandom to support a friend, I'll try it. But Supernatural was so not for me. In any way.

And it took me a long long time to warm up to SGA, and I still don't really get it the way some of its hardcore fans do. My heart is totes given to the original show.

I watched BBC Sherlock just because it was clearly becoming the shiny new thing, but it left me cold. Basically sent me back to the books.

And then Avengers! I love Avengers movie verse and thank goodness there are people writing the stuff I want to read. But Thor/Loki and Bruce/Tony seem to be fandom favorites, and I'm more interested in Tony/Steve, Natasha/Clint and Clint/Phil. Not exactly rare pairings, but not what fandom's taken off with either.

But I highly doubt I'll ever write Avengers either.

All my plot bunnies these days are SG1 and orig fic.

But when White Collar comes back on, that's a possibility. And I'm inhaling Legend of the Seeker right now. I already thought of a fusion with that verse and SG1, lol.

Two other fandoms I adore but that I don't really read much in are Firefly and Burn Notice.

So I have no idea how it all works.

I'm just glad to be writing again.

I like movie verse Steve/Tony very much, but not in the same way I like Jack and Daniel. But others may differ.

Well for this Jack/Daniel shipper who became a huge Steve/Tony shipper, I see a lot of the same "broken and lonely" dynamic where these two people are exactly what they need to fix each other.
