It's a teacher work day today. So far: parent-teacher conference; Costco; Target; Great-Clips. To come: pumpkin carving; costume assemblage.

So, to remind myself that occasionally I do something other than look after my kids and work, here's a meme (ganked from everyone). I feel there are some obvious answers to this question, but...

"If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach." Alfred Hitchcock

When you read a story that I have written, what do you immediately look for (or expect to find)?
  • Spot-on characterisation and something to make me *think*.
  • Caning!

    No, really, some kind of kink, emotional or story-wise that might not usually be my cup of tea, but in your hands is incredibly well-done.
    • lol! you have met me in rl, so you know how hilarious it is that I write any kind of kink, especially wacky caning!fic :)

      but thank you for the kind words--and yeah, a lot of those stories wouldn't have been so well done w/o your beta help!
  • (no subject) -
    • hee! indeed--the things that fic writing can uncover, I don't know!

      And thanks for that second one--it's something I've only started feeling comfortable writing about in the past six months or so, but I've been enjoying it!
  • Huh. You know, I don't think I ever come to your stories with any kind of expectation except that I'll like it and be entertained :-)
    • thank you! that is a lovely thing to say!

      (I thought everyone would comment with "mushy h/c, duh!) so it's a relief that's not all people expect.
