I was back in the suffering dome yesterday so have two more today!

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

Not really, although I suppose Uther being quite nice at the end of The Wasting Game was a bit of a change in opinion. I usually go for the maximum 'Uther suuucks' route, but I think there I had more of an image of him as a stressed father, trying to do right by his kids and failing most of the time.

8: Do you write OCs? And if so, what do you do to make certain they're not Mary Sues, and if not, explain your thoughts on OCs.

I think I've only really written two - Daniel and Evan, Merlin's foster brothers in After the Heart Goes - a fic I did about Merlin growing up in care. I enjoyed writing them and they weren't a big enough part of the story for them to ruin it if everyone hated them!

The cool thing about the Merlin fandom is that we often use one episode characters who barely got any screentime in our fics, and it's a bit like writing an OC when authors decide what characteristics to give them. I genuinely love seeing people's take on, like, Mary the Tavern Keeper
