    What's your favorite to read? What's your favorite to write? Why? Are they the same?

    I have two for the moment. :p Harry Potter and Twilight. I think they're too different to be the same. :)

    Right now, favorite to read is probably Avatar:TLA, though Harry Potter will always win. Favorite to write is definitely Harry Potter.

    Wow... how to pick....

    Currently my favorite to read is either NCIS or Firefly. My current favorite to write is Supernatural.

    My favorite to read is probably Supernatural at the moment. Writing... that's a tie between Torchwood and Supernatural.

    Star Trek. I love reading Star Trek. I've tried writing it myself but I'm having difficulty with the characters.

    I like reading Merlin, as well. Next to Supernatural, it's my favorite show.
    But writing? *sighs*

    It doesn't feel right yet. Don't ask me why but sometimes it feels like the characters aren't speaking to me, as crazy at it sounds. :p

    Star Trek is my favorite to read and to write. I am in raptures over the new timeline and am totally not at a loss when trying to feel what the characters feel and giving them their true voices--one lovely lady in particular. :D [face_dancing]

    Favourite to write? Merlin, and my wacky, one-of-a-kind True Blood/Merlin crossovers. :p

    Favourite to read? Harry Potter, Merlin, Star Trek, Firefly. :D

    True Blood/Merlin Crossovers? I wonder how that works? [face_thinking]

    Ant, you know you have to post, right? I'm curious now. :p

    LOL! [face_laugh] I would, but they're kind of... nsfw... or they're implied as to not being safe [face_blush] 8-} Though maybe it's just me being weird... I can link them to you, and if you think they're okay enough I'll post 'em here, too. ;)

    Favorite NSW to read? That'd have to be Quantum Leap crossovers, BtVS/Angel, and... Smallville. (And also crossovers. They're fun.)

    Favorite to write: Animorphs... because "Idiot teengers with a deathwish" just does not sum up that series.

    Favorite to read is House. Favorite to write is The Simpsons. I actually see a lot of similarities between them, and I'd love to explore that in a crossover or something, but right now, I'm just more comfortable with the Simpsons.

    Favourite to read? It shifts every so often. I go through phases of really liking a particular fandom, and then I veer away from it. But I always read Harry Potter fan fic, it's the one fandom that I always come back to and don't really get tired of, so I guess it's my favourite NSW. :p

    Favourite to write? To cut the long, convoluted story short, it also shifts every so often. At the moment I have most of my plot bunnies for Harry Potter (big surprise :p ) and after SW, I find that it's also the easiest fandom for me to write in (unlike some -- such as LOTR, which is next-to-impossible for me to write for, despite the fact that I grew up with Tolkien's Middle-earth). Right now, my current obsession with all things Shakespeare has activated my muse and for some reason my potential future directors' notes for Hamlet have turned into a flurry of vignettes and stories which are devastatingly addicting to write. Oh boy. 8-} (I also blame Nat for it :p ).

    Funny, since I plan to blame any future Shakespeare fics on you :p

    I'm not sure what my favorite to write in is, but right now my favorites to read are HP and Avatar :D

    Not much of a writer myself, at least of stories that are ever finished, but I have to go with Harry Potter. Besides SW it has probably the most diverse world and most possibilities to explore.

    As for reading? Sherlock Holmes, Firefly. Oh, and Doctor Who. Doctor for the win!

    I find Pirates of the Carribean really easy to write (easier than SW) because I know so much background about the history of Pirates.

    Kingdom Hearts, .Hack//, Death Note, Firefly.

    Just those exacting series, of which 3 out of 4 have finished or are in the process of finishing, which is saddening. :(

    For reading I would say Halo, nothing like the master chief and killings some covenant. Also the small loyal fan base for Joel Rosenberg's Guardians of the Flame series. Then there is the Belgariad and Mallorean, what can I say Eddings knows how to work a formula and sell some books.

    Write i would have to say if I did I would look at a few Halo storie maybe some B-star G, something set in Butcher's Dressden files, maybe a Kindred story or two.

    Both tend to rotate, I go through cycles of reading and writing different fandoms.

    Reading: Right now I'm back on a House kick but also Torchwood and Queer as Folk(US).

    Writing: Torchwood and Brothers & Sisters.

    I think they differ because I've tried to write House before and I just don't like the outcome. While I can be snarky in real life I seem to not be able to write it with House's particular flair. 8-} I've not even tried to write QAF, probably for the same reason. I don't think I could do Brian any justice, though I guess I may try one day.

    I sometimes write Brothers & Sisters but don't read it all that often because the fandom is so small I've not found very many authors that I enjoy, though there are a few.
