    When you spend hours researching what Marvel characters can be seen as Goth for an AU one shot that you MIGHT write.

    .....when you are trying to figure out what your OC would wear, and the next thing you know, you are frantically scrounging through Pinterest, pinning anything and everything that feels like their style, your mind racing with such thoughts as:

    "That armor thing is awesome, but she needs clothes to wear under it. Hey, purple catsuit! Perfect!"

    "I'm planning to have her get married at some point. I need to find her a wedding dress."

    "Ooh! She needs underwear! What kind of underwear would she wear?"

    This question is a returning one for me, especially since so many of my characters are female and have different styles. I can't just give them all plain sports underwear

    ...you need to re-watch "Adam" to get Rose Byrne's body language and expressions right and you see it with different eyes now that you're no longer involved with a guy like Adam was - you actually pay attention to her character, Beth. :)

    ...you decide to keep your epic on hiatus for two weeks instead of one, in order to write a couple of things for other people and (hopefully) make them happy.

    ...you always have something to say in this thread. :p

    I've invented two sets of underwear on the fly, but not enough to make a Fanon entry.

    Amazon has a big involvement in the styles of my OCs.

    ....when you do a fictional family tree not once, but twice... and the second time to answer a behind the scenes question for yourself. (If I had a great-grandfather I never met that was born in the 1880's and had what amounts to three different families, then so can a fictional character... and that was how I made my mother laugh this week. Hee.)

    Yep!

    One of mine was either a brand or a designer, or both.

    The other was a replacement for bikini.

    ...you had a Thrawn dream, he courted you. Previously, it was Nute Gunray (!) and Maul, twice. Why can't it be somebody hot instead, such as, say, Poggle the Lesser?

    Well EP, I haven't seen Poggle the Lesser on DreamlandDateSwap.com, but I could send you Chewbacca. Would that be okay? [face_laugh]

    TLJ-related.

    ...you imagine that your Force Vampire, Mitch Nifesta, is miffed that Luke did not call his old mate with the potential of a free meal, when he suspected that Ben Solo had gone all Dark Side.

    ...you owe five comments to your besties' stories - two for one, three for the other and a more coherent reply to your fic-gift, not to mention finishing your fic-gift to somebody else, but you're just so, so SO overwhelmed by people's kindness that your heart is beating in your throat, you need a benzo (the lightest one, don't worry), aromatherapy, pretty holiday lights, a banana, lots of water, Pepsi Max and, in a bit, a good night's sleep. THIS PLACE IS AMAZING.

    And yeah, moved twelve other stories to a new list in order to spare my RAM, will move the PMs to a list to, because I CAN'T.EVEN.WHOA. Sue me. :p
