Words: 8335 (2 chapters, complete)
Genre: case-fic, friendship,
Rating: All ages (small amount of coarse language)
Characters: James Hathaway, Robbie Lewis, Jean Innocent
Summary:

"He's got chickenpox, of all the bloody ridiculous things. Months of planning gone down the drain because Tom Winthorpe has gone spotty."

9. A passage from a WIP
10. What are your strengths in writing?
11. What are your weaknesses in writing?

Meme: Grill the Writer

Borrowed from half my f-list

Ask a question about my writing and I'll try to answer it:

1) What I was thinking at the time I wrote a story, or a question about my writing as a whole. The question can be about anything.

2) Pick a character/pairing I've written and I will explain the top five ideas, concepts, etc. I try to keep in mind while writing that character/pairing.

3) Quote a few lines from something I've written and I'll comment on them.

4) At AO3 I have posted 112 works in 4 fandoms, which includes 7 series. Pick a number from 1 (the most recent) to 112 (the first story I posted there) or from 1-7 and I'll tell you three things I currently like about the story/series. Or maybe just one or two if you pick a drabble.

Obviously you don't have to ask all the questions, or indeed any, but if you feel like asking, please do! :)
