Super bored again. I just have to kill fifteen minutes while I wait for my grilled cheese to cook.

7 – Have you ever had a fic change your opinion of a character?

When I wrote The Case of the Unfortunate Brother and realized what a horrible relationship Merlin and Mycroft had... well, yeah... I mean, so much of that series is written from Merlin's POV or with Merlin monologuing to John, that I couldn't help but kind of... see Mycroft from his perspective. And, well, I realized that maybe Mycroft means well, but Mycroft actually gets so many things wrong when it comes to people. A lot of the times in the series, he's built up to be smarter than Sherlock (I think he's canonically smarter than Sherlock), but, I also think that a lot of the time he's not at all smarter than Sherlock and Sherlock beliving that he is leads to many mistakes being made.

So, that's the example of my opinion of a character changing because of a fic I wrote.

I'm sure other people's fics have changed the way I view characters too. Actually, a prime example is the unfinished WIP The Inconveniences of Being a Malfoy, that is the largest influence in how I write Malfoy in the demented'verse. Their post-hallows Draco was probably the first time I ever LIKED the character and saw the full richness of who he could become post-series.

It takes fifteen minutes to cook a grilled cheese?

In the realms of more relevant comments, your fics have actually influenced *my* opinion of Malfoy; I really like the way you write him.

Um, it does when you cook it the way I do? Like, the pan's usually not full hot enough when I put it in on the first side, so it has to stay on the first side for a while. Then when you flip it over, you don't want the second side to burn while you try to figure out how long the second side needs, so you turn down the burner by half to give yourself a fighting chance to get back to the grilled cheese before it burns.

In the realms of more relevant comments though - awww! Thanks so much! :)
