Oh my gosh, I read your work and it is pure intelligence!
1. Where do you get all these inspirations from?
2. If I am correct there are two "Guiding Lights" is the new one a re-write or something else?
3. How do you see Hermione/Fred or George? Not judging or anything, lol, clearly curious. What give you the possibilities of that ship?
Thank you! That's so sweet to say!
1. Hmmm, well i guess i get some of them from school work, i know, this sounds so uninspiring, but it's true. I'm a Psyc. student so i run into a lot of topics that interest me and i take a lot of inspiration from. I'm currently writing one about George Weasley and it deals with single parenting and the effects of prejudice. It's a lot of things i've read about or heard about in class. I translate that into my writing sometimes. I work a lot from concepts and i rarely ever think of characters i want to write about but rather ideas that characters could fit into. Guiding Light for instance stemmed from the idea of memory and what would a person be like if they lost it all. Would they be the same? Would they love the same people? etc. Of course, a lot of other ideas have sprouted from that but the initial thing that got me writing it was that idea and being about to construct the plot. With that said there are others, like Perfect Spiral came from starring at a blank screen and then in frustration writing down a random sentence. It became my first Stream of Conscious one-shot and it's one of the favourite things i've written. I don't think you can necessarily pen down where inspiration comes from all the time, sometimes it just comes.
2. Yes there are two Guiding Lights, i know it's confusing but i'm actually changing the title of the second one before the next update. Although, the second is a rewrite of the first idea because i liked the general idea behind it but i didn't like the writing at all.
3. This is tough and i don't really want to talk about this one as it pertains to my story it would give too much away. So i will speak in abstract why i like the ship. I used to LOVE them but not as much anymore. I don't see them necessarily as opposites because they do have core values that are the exact same. Both are passionate, loyal, logical, brave, clever too boot, they fight for the same thing, they stick up for their family and friends. If you think how couples generally get together, my ex and i were more opposite in our personalities, he was more extraverted and i slightly introverted, it doesn't mean he always talked and i was quiet. hardly, i'm fun loving and animated but it takes an extravert to bring that out to it's fullest. Many couples are like that, stick two extraverts together and it tends to be chaos. They both try and talk and talk and it's hard to find balance between them. It's not impossible by any means but couples tend to be different in their personality to some extent. The best thing is that they would never be bored of each other, they would bicker but i don't think it would be anything too serious and would probably just turn out to be passionate and wonderful
She didn't completely disapprove of their pranks, just when they tested it on students or harmed anyone else in their efforts.Hermione is spunky though, she is fiery and i think that would intrigue the twins. She does have a sense of humour and anyone who says otherwise is off their kilt I also tend to think that they could balance each other out. You know how people are different when they are with different people sometimes? How their really bubbly and loud friend makes them more bubbly and loud but their quiet and introspective friend makes them a bit quieter and introspective. We reflect what we get. I think this concept works for them; i think that George would reflect a bit of Hermione and Hermione a bit of George. They aren't necessarily changing the other person, just reflecting a different side of themselves. I think they could teach each other a lot about life too. Hermione has a huge soul and heart and i keep imagining like a post-war George, who obviously HAS changed, you can't lose someone who been such a huge part of your life without losing part of yourself as well, and i imagine Hermione just reaching out to him, just as friends at first but slowly it blossoms into something else. It doesn't have to be long lasting or forever. But it would give them a chance to realize a different side of each other.
Wow, these are really long answers, probably more than you wanted too! I tend to be long winded too... hehehe.
Thanks for asking me a question *hugs*
