Why can't I ever be in charge of my stories? I have them all planned out and then my Muses say "Ah!! Let's turn left." But the story demands we turn right. "Right? Bah! That's been done. We're turning left!" So we turn left and I have to rewrite the entire story in my head.

What the hell, Muses???

XD I know that feeling! Definitely the best thing is to turn left, but planning everything out again is definitely annoying and tiring at times, so I do sympathise.

Yeah!! I can't refuse to listen but dear God I'd like to get through an entire story without 50 mental rewrites!

I tried writing Jack Harkness/Kirk fic tonight. 2 lines in and it's suddenly Harkness/Spock fic. Then it turned into more sort of K/S too. So yeah, I gave up planning that fic out at all. Jack's just going to shag whoever he wants with no input from me. It's going to do what it's going to do.
Damned fics ;)

Jack would shag them all. At the same time if he could find a way.

Kirk/Jack/Spock is a story I would definitely read! Is Ianto around or is he back in Cardiff? (Pls let him be alive in your story!)

Write more!!!

Omg, now you are changing the story again! Cause yes, a threesome with them would be the best. And Ianto isn't currently in the picture, but if I want to leave it K/S at the end, it would also work well to leave it Jack/Ianto. XD

Re: Awww Muses...
Exactly!!!! I love and hate them in equal measure!!! But I couldn't do anything without them! So there's that!

I know what you mean! You have one idea and the muse decides it has a better idea and just won't listen to you.

I have the same problem. I hate it, but sometimes when it goes "left" it turns out better than I had origionally planned.

I have that now; the fic was going fine until the muse said "Instead of making it one long scene with Steve, Danny & Rachel (NO! Not like THAT you perverts!), split it up." The muse needs a fucking smack.

Because we are slaves to our muses. We like to pretend we are in control... but just like cats... the muses are in control of us. :)

Hey, some of my best stories came from going a direction I didn't want to go!
