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?
It depends. I do not need music to write, nor do I create playlists. I have sometimes found a certain artist or type of music to enhance a particular writing experience (John Mellencamp was my go-to for The Invisible Man, and film scores for action pieces), but often whatever music I put on simply slides into the background. It's useful as white noise, keeping the outside world from interfering with the interior one I'm working in, but it's not very effective as inspiration. :)
The background buzz of a coffee shop works just as well.
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!

I have a thumb drive full of my favourite music.... goodness knows, I have music most of the time at work, at home, whatever, so why not when writing?
I always liked classical. But then, I have that when I do a lot of computer related things. I'd listen to podcasts, but it's hard for me to concentrate on the screen and the audio at the same time, so I tend to miss a lot of content. Not as much of a multitasker as I'd like to be.
Pandora is a wonderful thing, though.
