INSIDER INTERVIEW – [00:06:45]
Host: djin7
Guests: tripperfunster aka the Mistress of Squick, Saviour of the Universe.
Topic: “Fandom Goggles (even the kid’s shows aren’t safe!)”

The ‘Mistress of Squick’ discusses her many forays into slashing inappropriate characters for the lulz. Yeah, blame Canada. And hobknockers. The one in which DJ and Tripp laugh their way through Tripp’s very twisted take on how the actual anatomy of a platypus should absolutely be ignored for the purposes of slash Spy Vs Spy pr0n. You heard it here, first. But no Furries, please – we’re Canadian.

In this discussion, Madlori and Lissa (aka Cinnamon), authors of two of the most well-known character death fics in the Sherlock and Harry Potter fandoms, respectively, discuss their approach to writing character death, the response to their particular fics, and how writing about death can be cathartic and beautiful. Spoiler warnings for those two fics, and (obviously) for character death.
