Another fanfic gem  
"...she soon found herself at the feet of the iron fist of Sheriff Vaisey of Nottingham."

*wipes tears of laughter from eyes*...

Oh, I needed that... but wait, there's more!

"Blowing the candle out, the room plunged into darkness, freezing instantly as her mind flash backed..."

o_O - The room blew the candle out and froze instantly? "flash backed"?

Best part? This fic already has 2 positive comments - bet you can't guess which canon character the OC is making out with...

That's right, she's dragged from the dungeons, he tells her he's going to have his wicked way with her and despite all the hints at past abuse "she felt herself begin to long for him to claim her as his"...

If I didn't laugh I think I'd vomit.

It's not my ship, I admit it, but I appreciate what other people see in it and will happily read and enjoy it when it's done well.

This is not one of those occasions.

In fact I'm sure even some of the most hardcore fans of this ship must read fics like this and just cringe.

yes, something beautiful but very dangerous. mostly. also injured, so it's easy to forget about the dangerous part. Until he stabs you that is.

Now I feel bad about writing only about Guy and Marian...of course I came into this fandom as a RA fan, so what do you expect? On the other hand, writing in Denial has really given me an appreciation for doing much more ensemble writing with POVs from other characters...like Allan...and Vaizey...and Much...and LJ...and and and...all the other characters, really. I mean...Vaizey and Allan might even be my favorites now. *sigh* one can only read so many Guy sex scenes after all...

Oh you should never feel bad for writing your favourite characters and pairings. I mean other than a few drabbles and very short pieces I've almost exclusively (and unapologetically) written Little John because he is who I like and therefore he is also who I "get".

Just because a lot of other people have the same taste as you in no way makes it "wrong"! Far from it! And you're lucky in that you'll have a larger audience.

But I think if you're really serious about writing at all you have to try something different every now and again. Get out of your comfort zone - even if it's just a toe...

And you've been doing an awesome job with the Sheriff and Allan!

Well, you're doing an awesome job of writing all the other characters too. :)

My first two fics were extremely Guy-centric (well, the second one was Guy/Marian-centric but Guy was the only POV character), and I'm fine with that, but I'm really happy to be branching out with the S3 AU fic I'm co-writing now which basically has the full S3 cast + Marian. (Well, and mostly minus Kate, who only appears in three short scenes. :D) I'm especially enjoying writing Vaisey, PJ and Isabella.
