04:40 pm - Fic as clues to the writer's self meme
Snagged from about half my flist:

Pretend for a minute that the only contact you have ever had with me is through my fic. We've never exchanged LJ comments or emails, never hung out in chat or on IM, never talked on the phone or met each other at a convention, none of that stuff. The only thing you know about me is the kind of fic I write. Based on the way I write my characters, and the way they speak, think, and behave, what does that say to you about what kind of person I am, my attitudes and opinions about real-life issues?

I would be most grateful to anyone who takes the time to do this (I'm tempted to bribe you all with offered drabbles, but I hesitate --I tend to not get that kind of thing written).

Hm. I thought I would go back and read more of your fic so that I could do this up right, but... do you have it indexed anywhere? It's not in your memories that I could find.

I want Izzy!fic and I want it now! :(

Errr. Let's see about this--I've been meaning to index it all on my LJ here, but haven't quite figured out how I want to do that.

For you:

A lot of my fics are sort-of archived on my fanfiction.net profile. That's my catch-all area; some of those fics could also be found in other archives, like the Cal Sci Library and the Sugar Quill.

There's a few fics (a couple CSI ficlets and Numb3rs) that are only on my LJ right now; I need to go back and tag all my entries so people can find them!

SG-1 story for ficathon: Interim Choices.

And I wrote 2 episodes and co-wrote a couple more for The Invisible Man Virutal Season.

Well, the most I've read of your work is LICC and its various forms, so that's what I'll use as a baseline.

Since Artsy seems a classic author surrogate (I would *not* say Mary Sue, that would be an insult to both author and character, but I am right about the surrogate part, right? :-D) I would say a caring, thoughtful person, who deeply appreciates the creative process, inwardly craves excitement but yet is grounded in a strong foundation of realism and common sense.

*grin* Yes, I'd say she's probably a "classic author surrogate"--she's definitely more like me than most of my characters.

That's neat, that you gathered all that from her.

I would say you'd be a very intuitive, sensitve person with a very tangible understanding/experience of the world around her, and deep conviction...
