9 – Pairings – For each of the fandoms from day two, what are your three favorite pairings to write?
LOL, here we go with the pairings. If you've read any of my fan fiction at all, you will know that I rarely have OTPs, even more rarely do I write romantic pairings, and most (though not all) of my focus in fandom has been on close friendship or family relationships.
So I'm going to do this, but you must expect most of the "pairings" I list to be platonic or familial. If I have an OTP or favorite romantic pairing for a fandom, I will list it first, but I'm not going to privilege romance in general, because that would really skew my answers in terms of what my favorite relationships to write are. :)
And the fandoms are: Numb3rs, Stargate SG-1, Supernatural, The Sentinel, The Invisible Man, CSI, Harry Potter.
Larry Fleinhardt/Megan Reeves (my only true OTP)
Don Eppes/Robin Brooks
Don Eppes & Charlie Eppes (brothers; see, I told you family was a thing for me)
[Also David Sinclair & Colby Granger, also Megan Reeves and Colby Granger, shut up, I adore this show]
Jack O'Neill & Daniel Jackson
Classic Team SG-1 (hush, if people can OT4 them, I can do it platonically)
Janet Fraiser & Sam Carter
Dean Winchester/Lisa Braeden
Dean Winchester & Sam Winchester
Dean Winchester & John Winchester
Jim Ellison & Blair Sandburg
Jim Ellison/Carolyn Plummer (the only romantic pairing I regularly read fic for in TS)
Jim Ellison & Simon Banks
The Invisible Man:
Bobby Hobbes/Claire Keeply
Darien Fawkes & Bobby Hobbes
Darien Fawkes & Adam Reese
Gil Grissom/Sara Sidle
Sara Sidle & Greg Sanders (or Sara/Greg, actually)
Warrick Brown & Nick Stokes
particularly Sirius Black & Remus Lupin
various Weasley family members (twins, twins & Ron, twins & Percy, Molly & Remus...)
10 – Pairings – Have you ever gone outside your comfort zone and written a pairing you liked, but found you couldn't write, or a pairing you didn't like, and found you could?
11 – Genre – do you prefer certain genres of fic when you're writing? What kind do you tend to write most?
12 – Have you ever attempted an "adaptation" fic of a favorite book or movie but set in a different fandom?
13 – Do you prefer canon or fanon when you write? Has writing fanfic for a fandom changed the way you see some or even all of the original source material?
14 – Ratings – how high are you comfortable with going? Have you ever written higher? If you're comfortable with NC-17, have you ever been shocked by finding that the story you're writing is G-rated instead?
15 – Warnings – What do you feel it most important to warn for, and what's the strangest thing you've warned for in a fic?
16 – Summaries – Do you like them or hate them? How do you come up with them, if you use them?
17 – Titles – Are they the bane of your existence, or the easiest part of the fic? Also, if you do chaptered fic, do you give each chapter a title, or not?
18 – Where do you get the most inspiration for your fics (aka "bunnies") from?
19 – When you have bunnies, do you sit down and start writing right away, or do you write down the idea for further use?
20 – Do you ever get bunnied from other people's stories or art in the same fandom?
21 – Sequels – Have you ever written a sequel to a fic you wrote, and if so, why, and if not, how do you feel about sequels?
22 – Have you ever participated in a fest or a Big Bang? If so, write about your favorite experience in relation to one. If not, are there any you've thought about doing? And if not, why not?
23 – When you post, where do you post to? Just your journal? Just an archive? Your own personal site?
24 – Betaing – How many betas do you like to use to make sure there aren't any major flaws in your fic? Do you have a Beta horror story or dream story?
25 – Music – Do you listen to music while you write? Do you make playlists to get into a certain "mood" to write your fic? Do you need noise in general? Or do you need it completely quiet?
26 – What is the oddest (or funnest) thing you've had to research for a fic?
27 – Where is your favorite place to write, and do you write by hand or on the computer?
28 – Have you ever collaborated with anyone else, whether writing together, or having an artist work on a piece about your fic?
29 – What is your current project or projects?
30 – Do you have a favorite fic you've written? What makes it your favorite? And don't forget to give us a link!
But what about Doctor Who? :P

I've only written 1 1/2 DW stories; I'm limiting the fandom-specific questions to fandoms I've written more than 3 stories in. (AMY/RORY, of course.)
Ah, that makes sense. It was quite a nice DW story, by the way. May I inquire about the 1/2?
The 1/2 was supposed to be the story I wrote for kerravonsen
's Finishathon, but my trip to England interrupted the writing of it and it's not done yet. It's short, about 11 and Amy and Rory having an adventure on an alien planet (but it's really about different ways they love each other, because that's how I roll *g*).
That sounds super sweet and adorable! Will it be finished any time soon? *hopes*
Haha, I'm sorry, I feel like I'm always bugging you to write more fanfic. It's only because you're so good at it!
Classic SG-1 is totally my platonic OT4, too. *squishes them forever*
And David & Colby is my platonic-but-we-mock-them-like-it's-not OTP. Oh, Numb3rs, you were peopled with so many adorable characters.
