In which, CommaSplice is the first to fill a relationship tag, yet again. Or

Unable to take the haunting in his home any longer, Lancel Lannister calls on a paranormal investigation team led by Melisandre and Davos.

Tumblr prompt: “I’d like Lancel/Melisandre and a ghost/living person fic. Thank you.”

The Burning Time

thelordoftherainwoods requested Stavos, 36. living in a society where their love is taboo, and she wanted me to make her cry. Well, I made myself cry writing this, does that count? Thank you to shadowsfan for the idea!

14. What’s the worst writing advice you’ve ever come across? … I’m not sure. Probably something about keeping sentences to a manageable length.

21. How many times do you usually revise your fic/chapter before posting? Between never and 5-6 times. With Elemental I was revising continuously for months.

23. If you were to revise one of your older fics from start to finish, which would it be and why? Buh… I’m not super happy with my Stannis/Selyse fic, “The Last of the House.” There are points of style and plot in it that are just awkward and could use some finessing.

37. Talk about your current WIPs: Do you have all day? [behind a cut, because sure you do!]

25. What do you look for in a beta? Realistically, I’ve only used one beta, and her name is grammarsaveslives. So whatever she does. Supportive and truthful, easy to communicate with and she knows when I probably can’t redo something wholesale and has good suggestions on how to work in improvements anyway. Besides, she likes my writing and that’s a nice thing in a beta. 

38. Talk about a review that made your day: They all make my day; but one  recent favorite was the person who said Elemental made them rediscover their love for Stannis and Davos. Whaaat?! That was almost exactly what I needed to hear at that time.

13. What’s the best writing advice you’ve ever come across?: 15 minutes a day, every day. I don’t always do it but (like some people say about exercise) I always feel better when I do.

15. If you could choose one of your fics to be filmed, which would you choose?: The Undone Year. It would have to be a short film, but I can see it working.
