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.
