Trust that little voice in your head that says "Wouldn't it be interesting if..." And then do it.
Well, this little voice is constantly in my head and sometimes I act on it ;)
I have already written a few fics for Roswell and Alias on other boards and "Wicked"-themed fics on Fanfiction.net. And English isn't my mother-tongue - so sorry for all the mistakes!
Content: Their cheap rented room was really…well, cheap. This was not how he had pictured their first intimate meeting after years of separation. Not at all. Elphaba probably wanted to bolt. A different take on ALAYM.
Behind the notebook: My first Wicked story. I had the idea for it, while listening to the Wicked Workshops on YouTube and they originally wanted to set "As Long As You're Mine" not in the woods, but in a "cheap rented room". I think that this different setting is a great opportunity to change the story a bit. I wrote the story originally as a one-shot. In the end it was much longer than I had anticipated. So I decided to divide it, which proved to be quite difficult. Either I found a chapter too long, or too short, etc etc. That's why I wrote additional scenes, to give the characters a bit more "soul". For example the bath scene with Elphaba, where she is reflecting her outer and inner appearance. With these few new scenes the story got a new dynamism and it divided itself in "Dusk", "Night" and "Dawn". I have a special fondness for the number three. I have also written an Alias fic with the title "Three Words" and a sequel called "Three Photographs", so it's no wonder that "A Cheap Rented Room" was divided in three parts.
The most difficult part was the sex scene. Intimacy is a wonderful topic to write about, but quite a balancing act. I wrote the dialogue first, so I could get a feeling for the scene. How they are acting towards each other with words. After that I added the physical part, followed by descriptions and inner thoughts. Tough to write, but I enjoyed it.
I really wrote the end at the end ;) I had an completely different idea how the story would end. But when I came to the last scene I decided to change it. It's more dramatic than I intended and much more darker. It hadn't occured to me - until my beta told me - that I have given myself the possibility for a sequel. I'm stilly playing with the idea.
Music: During writing this fic I have listened to the album "Goodbye" by Anita Lipnicka & John Porter. Simply breathtaking.
Formalities: Drama and Romance, Elphaba&Fiyero, Musical, high T setting, 3 parts, Beta: crazybeagle - COMPLETE
Content: Now is not the time for liberal thought. So I go hunting for witches. No matter the cost.
Behind the notebook: My first one-shot. Never thought I would be able to write a one-shot. Mostly because I only have ideas for very long stories, which have to develop over many chapters. I originally wanted to write some scenes about the beginning of Fiyero's hunter career in "The Night Should Be Feared". But the story led me into a different direction and there was no room for these kind of scenes. The song "Hunting For Witches" was my inspiration for this one-shot. You can see it as a prequel for "The Night Should Be Feared" and there are even a few references to that story, for example that Fiyero hadn't been able to made it through college without the help of his father. The whole piece is dedicated to Fiyero. As my wonderful beta crazybeagle put it: I have written a story to describe "Fiyero’s fundamental change in character between Act One and Act Two." I hope that I've made it right. I love Fiyero's character and I hope that I was able to give him a new facet.
Music: Bloc Party's "Hunting For Witches" was my inspiration for this fic. I would recommend to listen to the song, while reading the story. It's pace is the heartbeat of the fic. Great song!
