I am having a TIME writing for my OTP (Wolfram x Yuuri)! I've been working on the sequel to "Do. Not. Want." for quite some time now, and it isn't working. Like, at all. I have 6 chapters done (and even managed to throw in another unrelated couple that I've NEVER written before!), but I can't get out those last chapters. *sigh*
Why is it that I can easily write crack pairings and pairings that step outside of the box of my OTP seriously or slightly, but not my OTP? Maybe it's because there's so much out there featuring the two that I feel that I can't contribute anything new/refreshing? I mean, everything's pretty much been done already. It's like that episode of South Park "The Simpsons Already Did It", only with my OTP.
And someone raised a good point the other day -- can I actually considered Wolfram x Yuuri my OTP if I'm all-too-willing to pair Wolfram up with others? And, speaking of pairings that I like and can't write -- I want so badly to write Conrad x Wolfram... but every time I try I keep putting it away or trying to turn it into a brotherly love only thing. *Harvey Birdman sigh*
The sequel to "1 Up" is coming along nicely (2 and a half chapters in it). I'm going to have to work on Gwendal's cousin a little more - though I have Anissina's cousins and their mother's personalities done nicely (at least, I think I have -- I might to post a list of their character personality/traits later this week and see what y'all think - I've never done any OCs before so I'm unsure of treading there even though they'll mainly be there for comedic relief). As of yet, I haven't decided who Wolfram will end up with -- but for once, he's going to be the one pursued (not only by OCs, but by canon men). Last chapter of 1 Up will be up this week, just doing some last minute tweaking/plot polishing.
I also have a Wolfram and Walterona(Waltorana?) tragedy/angst fic sitting on my harddrive (for the Wolfram project), inspired by one of you all. I'm deciding on whether or not to give it a semi-happy ending.
