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

When I write a story, what do you immediately expect to find in it? (besides the grammatical errors *BG*)

What have I learned to expect from your stories? A good, interesting plot, recognizable, sympathetic characters that sound like Jim, Blair and Simon, love, and a happy, satisfying ending.

Gut wrenching angst, humor and a wonderfully happy ending...

have to always

have a happy ending - my brain only works that way. :) I figure there are two things my stories will guarantee: A happy ending and lots of grammatical errors *G* although, thanks to some terrific betas in those last two years of writing, the grammatical errors were whittled down to only the changes I'd make after making the corrections suggested by the betas! LOL!

Food, glorious food. Lots and lots of food!

Amen, sister!

And I promise no matter how much Splenda or Stevia (sp) I use now, they will NOT make an appearance in any future stories! :)

Jim and Blair... or Jack and Daniel (don't read SGA) and a story where I know I don't have to look at the end first to make sure it ends up in a place I'll enjoy visiting.

I never thought of it that way, that no one needs to read ahead. :)

Great food, believable Jim and Blair, and a happy ending (thank you!).

Definitely food

and yes, always always always a happy ending. My brain isn't configured any other way and I'm proud to be a wuss. :)

Re: Definitely food

I stand up to be counted in the proud sisterhood of wussiness *g*

Your icon has reminded me it's been ages since I've read 'Jake'; it's one of my great go-to fics when I need comfort, so while I think of it, thank you again for making that world, and sharing Jake.

Me and a St.Bernard!

Always dependable - the dog for the keg and rescue, and me for happy endings! LOL! *makes note to add a St. Bernard and keg into a future story!*
