What are your favorite types of characters to play?
I write a variety of people so I don't know if there's a type. I've written Death Eaters, Aurors, monster hunters, monsters healers, weirdos, abstract hippie types, and so on. I like writing characters with layers and nuances; I find it hard to have one single thing define a character, and I really, really like complexity. I realised a while back that I've never written a character with a whole family, which is odd, but I've just never been able to, but that's something to maybe try. At some point.

What are your favorite types of plots or relationships in RP?
I will write anything, but I like complexity, nuances, layers. I think those things have to be built, so I like working on that, taking histories and oddment into account and working with those. Relationships with issues are real to me, even if people get along super well, so I enjoy those kinds of messy things.

What's your preferred post length? Preferred thread length?
I am flexible - I have written threads where the word limit was 200 words, and threads with no word limit where posts (accidentally) went up to 5000 (though I'd prefer not to repeat that >_>); also thread that were three posts long and I think the longest threads I've ever been involved in were, a) 8 months long, and b) 69 posts long (yes the number was amusing). It depends on what works for the story and characters and writers, but I have no preference. I do like time and space to sink my teeth into things, but I like experimenting with sinking within a limit as well. I like writing challenges mostly. I also don't expect people to match my length or style, and usually don't consciously try to match others' either.

How often do you post?
I usually post at least once a day, but sometimes RL does that thing it does. On the other hand when RL does that thing my muses usually push and fight back and I end up writing for eight hours straight. Just depends on how things are.

How long should a writing partner wait before nudging you to respond to a thread?
4 days - if it's more than that it usually means something is wrong. I usually like to let people know if I'm travelling or unwell or whatever. So if I've got silent something is *actually* wrong and that doesn't happen usually. I don't like unfinished plots and threads, even if it takes months (though shorter is EXCELLENT), so I will resiliently plough through and wait.

How do you feel about rapidfire?
Sounds great!

...What is it?

How do you feel about group threads?
They're awesome - they're an exercise in patience and editing and chonology and fun stuff like that I deeply, deeply enjoy the madness thereof.

How much pre-planning vs. spontaneity do you like in your plots? Do you prefer to stick to the script or to deal with surprise curveballs?
I think mostly for me it depends on the comfort levels of people I'm writing with - so I can be flexible. That said, I love being surprised and challenged. As long as it's not PP or irrevocably changes something crucial, I prefer snowballing. I also think a lot of creativity happens through the spontaneity of that sort of thing and I -like- it. Makes me goofy. So, really, give me all the tings. ^_^

What's your comfort level regarding graphic scenes w/ violence, drug use, sex, etc? Any limits?
I don't have too much of a limit. I usually write through the things that trigger me; so I've ended up writing around themes of violence, sex, sexual violence, death, and grief.

My limits are more to do with people I write with. One, boundaries are ALWAYS okay, and actually good things. I would rather know where my writing partners want to stop and pause there. As long as the people I'm writing with are open and willing, I'm okay to explore difficult subjects. In fact, I'd like to, usually, for my character or fellow writers'. Secondly, scary-and-difficult things do affect me quite a bit. I can handle myself in my writing (like any adult can), but I don't usually write them casually. So I do need sensitive, triggering stuff to be treated with respect.

What are some RP habits/styles/etc. that you love?
I dunno actually, everyone has something unique they bring, and I like reading most things.

What are some RP habits/styles/etc. that you avoid?
See above. I'm sure there's some stuff but I can't think of anything at the moment.

Is there anything else you'd like your writing partners to know about you?
I like chocolate milk. I also madly love writing, and can't usually stop, and writing with people is one of my favourite things ever. You can usually count on me to be overly honest to the point of bluntness and overly excited to the point of bouncing and capslocking (well, once I get to know you). Also, I can't code.

DRARRY: Who tops?
Harry, though Draco prolly put up a solid fight.
