Fun interview meme!

kerravonsen asked :

1. You've written a successful screenplay or novel. How would you feel if you came across fanfic for it which was pornographic or slashified or in some other way offensive and a complete distortion of your vision?

My instictive reaction would be to beat my head on my keyboard and curse the insanity of the masses. This is probably the limit of my actual reaction if it was just smut, anyway.

If it was slash, or a very twisted worldview being imposed on my situation and characters.... I would feel violated, I think. After I got done wondering what in heck I had done wrong, that someone out there could read slashiness into what was clearly a platonic relationship! Or anti-God stuff into something that would not be so (I did used to worry about this, writing fantasy while living around friends whose families were anti-SF&F).

So first I would blame myself and take a second look at the work.

Then I would get annoyed; possibly write flames but probably not, because to do so would be to acknowledge the *existence* of these perverted fics. And I would rather live in deliberate denial.

2. You are now Queen of the World. What would you do?

I don't want to be Queen of the World. All I need is my own hands to use, not the hands of others to command.

However, assuming that I was Queen, and could not get out of it.... Reinstitute the patron-artist relationship, in an attempt to rescue art and film and poetry from the realm of commercialism.

3. What is a fun and silly thing you would like to do, or have done?

Dress up like that plant woman from Farscape--or maybe wear a Rangers uniform from B5, or BDUs with the Stargate patch on it--and walk around the snazzy shopping places in Los Angeles, acting perfectly normal, and see if anyone notices, and what kind of looks I get.

If you want to ask me anything, do so in the comments. If you want me to interview you, likewise. Go forth and interview.
