Hmmmmmm I have a fair amount of headcanons, so this is a tough one! I'm going to go with Barry being quite firmly bisexual and fine with it, though. It informs the way I write him quite a lot, even when I write het with him!

Re: 5!
Love that headcanon. It makes perfect sense.

Re: 5!
I really think it does! There's even some canon evidence for it, imo.

Re: 5!
I would agree that there's canon evidence for it :) But out of curiosity, what makes you think so?

Re: 5!
Part of it is probably just my shipping goggles, heh. XD I think a lot of his interactions with Snart, for instance, could show that. In at least some of their episodes together Snart seems to be trying to flirt with him, and instead of drawing back dramatically Barry seems to flirt back a lot of the time? Same with Hartley, and possibly a few others.

Also, though I don't ship this one, a few of his interactions with Eddie could be seen as some sort of evidence. That might just be the chemistry between the actors, but the way they interact sometimes is - again - a little more flirtatious than expected.

IDK. Again, it may just be wishful thinking! But I think the interactions in the show do open themselves to that interpretation, at least some of the time. What about you, have you spotted anything I haven't? :)

Re: 5!
I agree, I think he definitely flirts with Snart, Hartley and Eddie, and maybe Wells too. And there's :40-:50 in this vid https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRefJ472dgk and his overall attitude toward Oliver.

2. What is your favorite snippet of dialogue?
doreyg

2!
That'd probably be:

"Mr Wa- Bruce, I'm not sure what universe you've been living in, but sleeping with incredibly handsome billionaires is not generally the kind of thing that normal people regret."

...From Just One Touch (http://archiveofourown.org/works/4904263), which is an Eddie Nygma/Bruce Wayne fic! I like pretty much all the dialogue in the fic, it's one of the ones I'm fonder of, but I think I got both Eddie's character and the tone of the fic with that particular line. :D

Oh, I have a LOT of favourite characters. But, at the moment, it's probably the Shade from the 90s Starman comics?

11 & 12
11. ALL OF THEM (or, at least, most of them). Uh, the one I can think of at the moment involves the Justice League getting magic/cosmic induced amnesia which results in Bruce/Wally getting together and a big adventure. I'm not sure when I'd write that, though. :(

12. Ahhhhhhh lots of things. It depends very much on the day, most of the time? Some days I find it relatively 'easy' to write a fair amount of things, some days the act of writing itself is a bit like pulling teeth.

One thing I do find consistently hard, though, is writing long stretches without dialogue. I tend to lean towards characters who are very wordy, and as a result most of my fics focus around characters having very in depth conversations with each other. I can do it, I think, and I'm trying to do a little more of it. But I just don't enjoy it nearly as much as people having long and faintly pointless conversations, you know?

Re: 11 & 12
Thanks for answers :D

11. I know what you mean - I have so many ideas and no time to actually write them. Or I overthink them too much.

12. I also find it difficult to write fics without dialogues. I guess it depends on the fandom and what the fic is about, but I don't think I've ever written a fic that didn't include dialogue.

1. I thought a fair bit about this. But, honestly, it's probably Holding Breath [YOU KNOW THE FANDOM AND PAIRING, http://archiveofourown.org/works/5968183/chapters/13715668]. It's not fully posted yet, but it is fully written and I'm just... Really pleased with how it came out? It's the longest fic I've ever written, and I really pushed myself in a way that I haven't really when it comes to fic before. I shy away a bit from saying I'm proud of myself, but I am fairly proud of how this turned out!

And so far it's got a really nice response, which helps! :D

5. I HAVE A LOT OF THESE. Uhhhhhhhh. I suppose the first thing I can think of, which is so strongly my headcanon that I actively have to remind myself that it's not 100% canon most of the time, is that Hal and Sinestro are in love with each other on all levels. Like, they want to fuck. But they're also in stupid soppy love (although super bad at expressing it or even acknowledging it), and friend love, and mentor love, and hate so intense that it's basically love, and partners love, and... Basically every kind of love ever, pretty much!

And, like, that's not always presented as canon in comics? But it's CENTRAL to my understanding of both characters, so I always find myself faintly confused when it isn't.

11. I also have a lot of these! Hm. I'm still toying with the River Song style Eobard Thawne/Barry Allen fic, so I'm hoping to get around to that at some point! We shall see.

...Also all the Wally/Bruce. But that's not so much specific ideas, apart from the cosmic induced amnesia (which is also a reporter/playboy AU, BTW!) idea above, so much as it is a burning desire for more fic! ;;
