30 Days Of Fan Fiction: Day 12

12 – Have you ever attempted an "adaptation" fic of a favourite book or movie but set in a different fandom?

I have, six times it appears--more than I'd thought! You can find them all together on AO3 here under "pastiche". They include:

Hot Stuff - Avon and Vila cross-dress to join a band on Gauda Prime. Inspired by Some Like It Hot.

Rebels and Amagons - after the shootout on Gauda Prime, Vila, Avon, Dayna, and Tarrant end up on the shores of a lake. Inspired by Swallows and Amazons.

Pine Barrens - Avon, Blake, and Vila are Sicilian wiseguys in the Terra Nostra, with nods to the original Sopranos episode.

The Selfish Hermit - A B7 children's story, based on Oscar Wilde's The Selfish Giant (which always made me cry).

The Diary of a No-Body - Zen's diary, written in the Victorian style of Charles Pooter. This one probably doesn't really fit the question since it uses style but not plot, but I'm rather fond of it.

Escape Committee - Vila on the penal colony CF1 as a teenager, in the style of Colditz/The Great Escape.
Rest of the questions

13 – Do you prefer canon or fanon when you write? Has writing fanfic for a fandom changed the way you see some or even all of the original source material?

14 – Ratings: how high are you comfortable with going? Have you ever written higher? If you're comfortable with NC-17, have you ever been shocked by finding that the story you're writing is G-rated instead?

15 – What do you feel it most important to warn for, and what's the strangest thing you've warned for in a fic?

16 – Summaries: do you like them or hate them? How do you come up with them, if you use them?

17 – Titles: are they the bane of your existence, or the easiest part of the fic? Also, if you do chaptered fic, do you give each chapter a title, or not?

18 – Where do you get the most inspiration or ideas for your fics?

19 – When you have plot ideas, do you sit down and start writing right away, or do you write down the idea for further use?

20 – Do you ever get ideas from other people's stories or art in the same fandom?

21 – Have you ever written a sequel to a fic you wrote, and if so, why? If not, how do you feel about sequels?

22 – Have you ever participated in a fest, ficathon, or a Big Bang? If so, write about your favourite experience in relation to one. If not, are there any you've thought about doing? And if not, why not?

23 – When you post, where do you post to? Just your journal? Just an archive? Your own personal site?

24 – How many betas do you like to use to make sure there aren't any major flaws in your fic? Do you have a beta horror story or dream story?

25 – 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?

26 – What is the oddest (or most fun) thing you've had to research for a fic?

27 – Where is your favourite 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 favourite fic you've written? What makes it your favourite? And don't forget to give us a link!
