30 Days of FIc: Days 4 & 5

4 – Do you have a "muse" character, that speaks to you more than others, or that tries to push their way in, even when the fic isn't about them? Who are they, and why did that character became your muse?
5 –If you have ever had a character try to push their way into a fic, whether your "muse" or not, what did you do about it?


There are definitely characters that I connect with more than others, but I'm not sure I would call any of them a "muse." Mostly bc I don't want to put myself in with ppl who used to have conversations with characters at the beginnings (and sometimes the middles!) of their fics lol I guess my "muse" characters are just ones that I see myself in or that I would like to be like. Usually it's the fucked up men who struggle to emote properly, like John Reese or John Sheppard, which I don't suppose says much good about me... Also super confident women like Pepper Potts, which is much better haha

I have had characters try to push their way into fics and, more often, had characters try to make themselves the POV character when that was supposed to be someone else. For MCU, Natasha does that a lot, and occasionally Maria as well. I had one fic that was supposed to be from Rhodey's POV, and before I knew it, it was all from Maria's. For Harry Potter, Draco does it. He always wants to be center of attention, but that's not surprising for him :) If things like that happen, I mostly just go with it unless it's something really important. Generally I discover that the new direction is better than what I'd planned in the first place, so in the end it's a good thing.

All questions here

Natasha does that for me, too! I guess she had a whole lot of story to tell. *loves her*
