GETTING TO KNOW VAMPIREMADONNA....

PART 3 ALL ABOUT YUNJAE....

TINA:  What does yunjae represent to you?
AYA:  The good old age of ficdom. They’re shipping royalty.

TINA:  Why are we obsessed with Yunjae?
AYA:  It’s rare when a pairing so real comes along. Nowadays, I see people shipping idols who’ve never even said a word to each other. In the old days, idols mostly interacted amongst their members or groups in their companies so it was easy to spot who had chemistry and YunJae’s chemistry was off the charts. Nothing that exists today compares, though a few have come close.

TINA:  Why is that Yunjae in stories can do anything and we support them?
(Ex: affair, Incest, home wrecker)
AYA:  Again, I only read genres that appeal to me and it isn’t the characters doing “anything”, it’s the writers’ decision to make them do “anything” and readers’ decision to read whatever writers produce. I support the real life Yun and Jae and my fics are merely imaginings of what their lives perhaps could have been if they hadn’t lived them in the spotlight(or such a conservative country).

TINA:  Tomorrow headlines Jaejoong confirms he is in a relationship with a girl. How do you feel?
AYA:  Happy for him. If he’s happy, I’m happy.

TINA:  Asian celebrities often get married in secret and hide the fact they are indeed married..So one member of TVXQ is in that married status. How do you feel?
AYA:  I’d totally respect their decision. Having seen the fallout relationships can cause among fans, I don’t blame them one bit.

TINA:  How real is Yunjae and how much is in fact Fan service?
AYA:  There’s no doubt that some of it was fanservice but there’s also no doubt that there was real love and chemistry between them. Whether it was romantic/sexual chemistry, well…that’s subjective.

TINA:  Do you think Jaejoong is gay?
AYA:  I haven’t really thought about it, tbh. I could see him as pansexual.

TINA:  When Yunjae comes out publicly……..
AYA:  Angels will sing.

TINA:  Does yunho look gayer than Jaejoong?
AYA:  I don’t think Jaejoong “looks” gay so I’m not sure how to respond to that.

TINA:  Do you think they meet secretly and still friends or even lovers?
AYA:  I’d like to think so. They meant too much to each other to just throw it all away.

TINA:  I heard Jaejoong song Nine is for Yunho even though he denied it?
What do you think?
AYA:  It’s a great song, regardless of the inspiration behind it.

TINA:  What is about Yunjae that makes you sacrifice your time and energy upon writing fictions..
AYA:  For a time, I was mesmerized by them and I didn’t have much going on IRL, truth be told, so it was easy to lose myself in fantasies about them.

TINA:  Your future plans for fanfics?
AYA:  I still write but I’ve changed pairings a few times over the years.

TINA:  Thoughts on homosexuality?
AYA:  I’m all for the gays, etc. Love is love. What people do, who they love, is no one’s business but theirs.

TINA:  What do you think of people who think homo sexuality is a sin and a disease which can be cured?
AYA:  I’d say it’s ignorant but people have their reasons for believing what they do. How they act concerns me more than what they think.

TINA: What do you think we should do to make the world accept homosexuality?
AYA:  I don’t think there’s anything we can do. The fact that racism still exists in this day and age is proof enough that prejudice will always exist. People will always find something to hate.

TINA:  In the future your kid comes out to you. What will you do?
AYA:  Make sure they understand that life won’t be easy but they’ll always have me and my love… Then sit him/her down and watch my favourite [age appropriate]LGBT movies.

TINA:  Pride or love?
AYA:  Love, always.

TINA:  Love to me is…………
AYA:  Hard, but usually worth it.

TINA:  Do you believe in love at first sight?
AYA:  I believe in lust at first sight.

TINA:  What are your views on yoochun scandal?
AYA:  It’s unfortunate but he’ll bounce back.

TINA:  Since Junsu has been in a relation with a girl has yoosu ship sunk?
AYA:  I never shipped it romantically but if it was real, them dating women now wouldn’t change the past.

TINA:  How did you react to the news of “Yoochuns” upcoming marriage?
AYA:  I was surprised but if it’s what he wants, I support him.

TINA:  I have read somewhere that Jae and chun are looking more like lovers than friends..what do you think?
AYA:  I haven’t seen any evidence to that with my own eyes so I can’t comment.

TINA:  Are we deluding ourselves by making these OTP’s?
AYA:  Um… shipping is fun and so long as no one takes it too seriously or thrusts it in the idols’ faces, it isn’t harmful. There’s no
way to know for sure if a ship is real and I don’t think our pairings owe us any confirmation. They didn’t ask to be shipped. That was our choice. I think when people get too wrapped up in their ships and get angry at “competing” ships or at the idols’ real life partners is when they’ve obviously crossed the line from shipping to obsession.
Some common Questions:

TINA:  Opinions on plastic surgery?
AYA:  I support anyone who decides it’s right for them. It’s no one else’s body or business.

TINA:  Do you think jaejoong’s in famous beauty had help from the plastic surgeon?
AYA:  Well, we know he’s tweaked some things but for the most part, he’s always looked the same.

TINA:  Why should we be obsessed with pop idols when they don’t even know we exist?
AYA:  I don’t think obsession is healthy. I don’t let myself get attached to people IRL, much less for strangers I’ll never meet. There’s a difference between liking and supporting someone and building your life around them, which unfortunately happens with a lot of Kpop fans and it’s why they take scandals, especially the romantic kind, so hard. They feel it like it’s a personal betrayal. But the idol didn’t do that to them; they did it to themselves.

END OF PART 3.


Dearest Aya,
Thank you so much for taking time out from your busy life and giving us this awesome interview for us to read and get to know the person behind the much successful yunjae fanfics...Wish u all the very best.
Love Tina.

LET'S GET INTIMATE WITH VAMPIREMADONNA...........

PART 2 ALL ABOUT WRITING FANFICTIONS.............

TINA:  How and when did you decide to be a fanfic author?
AYA:  So my very first fanfic was actually a Rob Pattinson RPF that I usually forget about because there were only 3 chapters and I discovered Kpop shortly after. That was 2008. A Kpop friend talked me into writing FF, which I still knew little about, and since I had recently discovered Yunjae, they were the obvious choice. There was no conscious thought involved. It honestly just happened.

TINA:  What made you to sit down and actually write something?
AYA:  I initially wrote the fic for a friend, as a gift, then just started getting more and more plot ideas and since I was at uni, and bored out of my mind, I had a lot of time to kill.

TINA:  What is the first fanfic you completed?
AYA:  The first fic ever was the Rob Pattinson one. It was actually a slash fic about him and one of his best mates.

TINA:  How did you get your idea for your first fanfic?
AYA:  He had a sort of Rat-Pack group of friends and one in particular was very attractive and I just loved their friendship. I got an idea, which I felt guilty about at the time, but the urge was too strong and thus the fic was born.

TINA:  Have you had any prior experience of writing before your first fanfic?
AYA:  I’ve actually been writing since I was about 13. When we got free periods in class, if a teacher didn’t show up and there was no substitute or supervisor, I’d ask my friends to throw out an idea and then write a short story based on that. It just continued from there. I never stopped writing.

TINA:  Have you ever plagued by doubts on your storyline?
AYA:  Not really. I usually think through the progression of a fic from beginning to end even before I’ve written the first word. The rest unfolds as I go along, and I may make a few changes here and there if I’ve gotten new or better ideas, but there’s always a path, from start to finish, that I stick to.

TINA:  How did you promote your fanfic to readers?
AYA:  I’ve never really promoted my fics, interestingly enough. I was lucky that despite the breakup, Yunjae was still huge when I started writing. I just started posting on Livejournal and sometimes friends would share on YJ fic communities and then when I got a reader base, they started sharing with friends. I’ve been very fortunate that people liked my fics enough to do the heavy-lifting for me.

TINA:  Have you ever been anxious about how the readers receive your story?
AYA:  There’ve been a few fics here and there with questionable subject matter that I wasn’t entirely sure about how they’d be received. Thankfully, it all worked out.

TINA:  Thoughts on how you felt when you see the first comment on the first story? Do remember who is the first commenter?
AYA:  It was my friend, the person who encouraged me to starting writing fics in the first place and the person who I wrote the fic for. I was glad that she liked it.

TINA:  How do you prepare yourself before writing a fanfic?
AYA:  There’s nothing in particular that I do. I sit down, open MS Word, and let the words flow.

TINA:  Do you work out plot line or do you prefer to see where your ideas or inspiration take you?
AYA:  Definitely. As I said before, I always have the beginning and end planned before I start writing. I usually have an idea of the events that need to happen to get me there; the things that the characters need to experience throughout the fic to get them to the end. There is the rare occasion, for one-shots mostly, where I get an idea that consumes me and I just dive in without too much preparation.

TINA:  When and how does your inspiration or muse come to you?
AYA:  It could be completely random, just something that popped into my head. Sometimes it’s a movie that I watched; often a dream or a song. If I discover a really good song, I tend to get obsessed and listen to it on repeat and then I often find plot ideas creeping into my mind and the next thing I know, a fic is taking shape. Or if I watch an LGBT film, I sometimes get the urge to put it into words featuring my ship at the time.

TINA:  What is the weirdest place you were struck by inspiration for your fanfic? Did you write the plot?If yes what is the title of the fanfic?
AYA:  Ugh, church. Not the place you want to be mentally composing smut. But most of my fic ideas actually come to me in the shower. I did write most of those fics so you can honestly pick any one of the fics that I’ve written.

TINA:  How much research do you do for your story?
AYA:  Well, it depends on the subject matter. If, for example, the fic is about a sick person and I decide to give them a specific illness, then I’ll look up the symptoms, treatment, etc., of said illness to make sure that I do it justice. I take those things very seriously because you never know if someone with the same illness might be reading the fic.

TINA:  What is the easiest part of writing?
AYA:  For me, it’s getting an idea. In the beginning, you’re excited and energetic and focused. You can’t wait to put into words what’s churning in your head.

TINA:  What is the hardest part of writing a story?
AYA:  Staying committed. It’s one thing to get an idea and start writing however as time passes, you may find your dedication waning. Maybe the fic is taking up too much of your time or it’s taking too long to complete. Maybe you’re not so interested in the plot or even the pairing anymore. The worst thing is when real life keeps throwing obstacles in your way. It’s tempting to say “f**k it” and throw in the towel.

TINA:  The writer’s worst nightmare the dreaded writer’s block.When is the worst writer’s block you ever had? How did you overcome it?
AYA:  I’ve never had writer’s block, believe it or not. Maybe it’s because I think things through so thoroughly before I start writing. There’s never a point where I go “what do I do now?” or “where do the characters go from here?”.

TINA:  Any useful tips on how to overcome the writer’s block?
AYA:  I imagine that it’s different for everyone. I would say: think about why you started writing in the first place. Not in general but that particular story. What about the plot made you want to write it so badly? Maybe getting back into that frame of mind will rejuvenate your interest and make ideas start flowing freely again.

TINA:  Have you written any collaboration with other author’s? If yes name of the fanfic.
AYA:  No.

TINA:  How do you describe your writing style? Do you think you have your own personal writing style?
AYA:  Minimalist realist. I don’t use flowery, complicated vocabulary. I don’t see the need for it when simple terms work just as well and don’t require readers to pick up a dictionary, especially since a lot of my readers aren’t native English speakers. I tend to also write very down-to-earth, realistic stories that pretty much everyone can relate to.

TINA:  How do you think you have evolved creatively throughout the years? Do you notice any change in the way you write?
AYA:  Well, when I first started writing, I was young and didn’t know much about the world and relationships. That has certainly changed through the years and I tend to borrow from my own experiences when establishing characters. They each have a little bit of me in them.

TINA:  How important are readers and their comments?
AYA:  I always say that I don’t write to please my readers, and that remains to be true, but I do appreciate that people not only take their time to read my little musings but they genuinely seem to enjoy them. The best comments are the ones where people say that X or Y character reminds them of themselves or they learn some kind of lesson from what those characters experienced. I don’t write with the intention of having a “moral of the story” but some readers seem to interpret them that way and I’m okay with that.

TINA:  I have been a silent reader for few months before taking the steps to comment..Any words for silent readers?
AYA:  You know, I’m a silent reader myself. Before LJ, I never commented on fics and even now, as a writer, I still don’t comment on most of the fics I read, which is why I don’t take it personally when readers don’t comment on my fics. Expressing oneself is optional. If they want to, I’m happy to hear from them and I do read all comments. If not, that’s cool too.

TINA:  Do you read other yunjae fanfics? If yes name of the fanfic you loved?
AYA:  Wow, it’s been years since I’ve read a YJ fic to be honest. When I first got into YunJae, I consumed so much, often indiscriminately. I can’t think of any off the top of my head but I do know that there were some pretty great ones. I liked the fact that YJ writers were more mature than other pairings at the time.

TINA:  Are you friends with any other author’s?
AYA:  A few.

TINA:  How do you make your stories standout when there are heaps of other stories with similar plot lines?
AYA:  Well, it’s like I said before: I don’t pander to anyone. The last thing I think about is having my fic stand out or attracting readers. Personally, I think if you write with the intention of gaining popularity, either for yourself or your fic, then you’re probably not writing for the right reasons and you aren’t going to have an authentic product. I’ve even had fics with unique premises that went relatively unread compared to fics with far more generic storylines. People read whatever they want to read.

TINA:  Has anyone stole your story and published under their name?
AYA:  Yes. There was someone a while back who stole a lot of different LJ writers’ works and mine happened to be one of them. He posted them on a different site which, fortunately, a lot of LJ readers also used and they were the ones to bring it to our attention. By that point he’d had a lot of comments and compliments since it’s rare to find a male Kpop fic writer. When confronted he claimed that he had only reposted the stories but he had never given credit to the original writers or even asked their permission so… Needless to say, he disappeared pretty soon after.

TINA:  Thoughts on others stealing your work?
AYA:  Plagiarism is an unfortunate reality in pretty much anything. I accepted that a long time ago. I reconcile it with the belief that no one else writes like me. To me, all writers have a signature that someone used to their work can always detect. It’s that way for me, at least. If I frequent an author often enough, I don’t even need to check the name to know if a fic is theirs. I’d like to think that I’m the same so if someone wants to steal my work, there’s nothing I can really do about it. But they can never copy my style.

TINA:  How do you manage your time between your daily activities and updating stories?
AYA:  I suck at time management. It’s a serious problem. In order to get anything done, I have to make up my mind to do it and do it.

TINA:  Do you have any favorite time of the day to write stories?
AYA:  I used to stay up ‘til all hours of the morning writing. That went for uni papers and fics. Nowadays, I try not to stay up too late unless I’m in the zone and don’t want to interrupt my flow.

TINA:  Your favorite genre to write?
AYA:  Well, going by the majority of my fics, I seem to like to emotionally torture my characters, which occasionally results in their deaths. Almost all of my fics are angsty.


ALL ABOUT STORIES......

TINA:  Inspiration and thoughts  behind “FORBIDDEN”?
AYA:  I had just watched Frozen Flower, which is a beautiful film; Jae looks extra lovely with long hair, like the characters in the film, and Yunho is just very kingly. Those are all the ingredients I needed. Of course, I loved the fact that the film was so deep and emotional and tragic. It was right up my alley.

TINA:  Inspiration behind the fanfic “SECOND CHANCES”? what was the readers reaction to the initial “HoMin” pairing?
AYA:  I think SC is one of those ideas that just popped into my head after watching a movie, though I can’t say what movie it was or if it was related at all. I was a little unsure about the reception it would receive, tbh, because at the time, due to the lawsuit, there was a lot of anti-Homin and anti-JYJ sentiment flinging around. Also, some people absolutely hate seeing members of their favourite ships coupled with other people and they’re very vocal about it. I knew that some of the YJ crowd wouldn’t be down with the Homin parts but it was integral to the fic and I wasn’t about to change it for anyone. In the end, even the anti-Homin readers ended up sympathizing with them so it worked out thankfully

TINA:  Thoughts and inspiration behind the fanfic “SAVE ME”?
AYA:  Don’t quote me (lolz) but I think this was a combination of a song and my own experience dealing with an obsessive ex. I even used his physical description for Jae’s husband.

TINA:  Few words on “FATAL ATTRACTION” and “REDUX”?Have you planned the seqel since the beginning of the plot..or decided in between?
AYA:  I did not originally plan a sequel, no. It just kind of happened when I got to the end of the fic and realized that I wasn’t quite ready to say goodbye yet. Fun fact: there was a 3rd installment planned but I never got around to writing it. It’s still in my head, though.

TINA:  Few words on “FATE(MIROTIC)”?
AYA:  That was a subtle response to all the fics that feminized Jae and took the uke/seme dynamic way too seriously. We know that Jae’s beauty can rival any woman’s and while he may have some feminine attributes, I’ve never seen him as anything less than male and masculine. It’s why Yunho first thinks he’s a girl then realizes he isn’t and has to come to terms with that. Does Jae’s true gender make him any less desirable?

TINA:  How did the thought to include jaejoong’s pov for "FATE (MIROTIC)" come by?
AYA:  Yunho’s POV was short and although initially a one-shot, this was another one of those fics where I got attached to the characters(I even gave one of the made-up side-characters his own spinoff). I wrote Jae’s POV to show that him being composed and focused on his commitments didn’t mean that he was immune to Yunho. Some readers felt that Jae just used Yunho for one last fling and that wasn’t the case at all. As the saying goes, “there are two sides to every story”. This was Jae’s and I wanted to show more of his personality and his life.

TINA:  Few words on “HAUNTING”..inspiration behind this story?
AYA:  I don’t think this one had a specific inspiration as such. I hadn’t killed any characters in a while and I like to remind readers from time to time that not all stories have happy endings.

TINA:  Few words on “KARMA POLICE”?
AYA:  This is one of those ideas that I literally woke up with. Not quite the way you want to start your day.

TINA:  Inspiration behind the double shot “DELIVER ME” ..is jaejoongs death planned from the start?
AYA:  Yeah… I wrote this between a long-running fic that was going to have a happy ending so I felt that killing one of them here was okay. It’s sad that he only got to be happy with his love for one night though.

TINA:  Few words on knocked up jaejoong fanfic “BUNDLE OF MISERY”?
AYA:  I never liked mpreg, I’m still not hugely fond of it, so that was a challenge to myself to venture into the genre. I also wanted to write something a little more light-hearted but of course, being me, it had to have the requisite angst and heartache mixed in.

TINA:  First bromance fanfic of YUNJAE I have ever read. Inspiration behind this fanfic “HOW TO SAVE A LIFE”.
AYA:  Again, this was a personal challenge. This time to write something platonic/non-smutty. Also, it was Yunho’s turn to die. lol

TINA: How did the one shot “BURNING” happened?
AYA:  A friend at the time had a one-shot that she was considering writing a sequel to but couldn’t figure out how to make it happen so I wrote that as an example of one route she could take.

TINA:  Still writing or have you stopped now?
AYA:  I’ll never stop writing. It’s too much a part of me.

TINA:  Any future yunjae fanfics you are working on?
AYA:  I’m not currently working on any, in fact I have one that I never finished and it’s been haunting me for years. There were other fic ideas that I had fully plotted and never got to write either and attributing those ideas to other pairings just doesn’t feel right so they’re going to remain unwritten.


All ABOUT SMUT..........

TINA: Tell us why are we so interested to read taboo topics when it comes to yunjae? Ex.incest ,cheating,home wrecker etc.
AYA:  I’ve never written incest – it’s an area I avoid as much as possible – but I have written cheating fics, however I come at it from the angle that while cheating may be wrong, not everyone who cheats does so because they’re sexually insatiable or greedy. Sometimes they’re in situations that they simply can’t get out of and someone else comes along to further complicate their lives and tempt them with [temporary] happiness. It doesn’t make it right but they’re human and as humans they need love, attention and affection: things a partner or spouse may not be[capable of] giving.

TINA:  How difficult or easy is writing smut?
AYA:  It’s not that hard. The technicalities are basic for the most part, even if I’m not a man myself.

TINA:  Do you blush or get embarrassed while writing smut?
AYA:  Occasionally. I do surprise myself sometimes. I’m more embarrassed re-reading it sometime after it’s posted. Sometimes I’m like “God, I can’t believe I wrote that”.

TINA:  How do you write the sex scene? What is the inspiration?
AYA:  For me, it’s finding what seems authentic to the characters. I can’t write the same smut scene for every single character. People have different personalities so it goes without saying that they’ll make love or f**k differently too.

TINA:  Have you ever watched GV(gay videos) before writing a smut scene? (
AYA:  In the event that there’s something specific I’m looking for, I’ll use porn as a visual aid.

TINA:  Has any family member or friends have ever walked on you while writing a sex scene?
AYA:  I have written smut with my mother in the room many a time. I’ve even written it at work. No one had a clue.

TINA:  Thoughts after writing your first ever sex scene?
AYA:  I was still in high-school then, so maybe 15/16. I was really shy and kind of embarrassed and had zero experience on the matter but it didn’t stop me from writing it. I’d read enough romance novels by then to use my imagination.

TINA:  What is the secret of writing a sex scene that turns on your readers?
AYA:  Hmm… Well, I don’t write it with that intention but if that’s the end result, then job well done. Mostly I focus on the characters turning each other on and enjoying their experiences. I think if that’s portrayed well enough then readers can visualize it all the better and perhaps even put themselves in the characters’ places and that might be what ultimately arouses them.

TINA:  It is so heart breaking when u see your favorite authors deleting their journals or accounts, taking away the chance to reread some of your favorite stories..and having those wonderful stories lost..Have you anytime in future have plans on deleting your journal?
AYA:  One promise I made from the very beginning was to never delete my stories. The sites will sooner go down that I’ll delete my fics. I may not write YunJae anymore but I still cherish them and they were my introduction to the Kpop fic world so they’ll always hold a special place in my heart.

TINA:  Any words for the readers?
AYA: Thanks for reading!

I can’t think of anything too bad but there was one time that I was shopping with my mom and this really hot guy was walking along the sidewalk towards us and he smiled at me. I got so caught up in his smile that I didn’t notice the crack in the sidewalk until I twisted my ankle and almost face-planted. My face got hot and I was mortified but, and I consider this an upside, the hot guy smiled even wider when it happened. I didn’t mind. He was really cute.

AYA: Me, myself and I. Or Cyber Me, since I spend so much of it online.

TINA: Goal in life:
AYA: I honestly just want to live and die in peace. I’m a really mellow person. I don’t do drama.

TINA: How do you describe yourself?
AYA: Sweet and sour. I’m not for everyone. Most people either love me or think I’m strange/non-conformist and not everyone likes that. I’m also brutally honest but we need more of that in the world.

GETTING TO KNOW KIWI-LICIOUS....

PART 3 ALL ABOUT YUNJAE.....

TINA: What does yunjae represent to you?
NHU: Perfection.

TINA: Why are we obsessed with Yunjae?
NHU: I used to be a straight-couple author and, for some unknown reason, I switched over and have only been writing YunJae ever since. I just feel drawn to them and I think their irresistible charm is why we are obsessed with them.

TINA: Why is that Yunjae in stories can do anything and we support them?
(Ex: affair, Incest, home wrecker)
NHU: Hm, this isn’t true. I have seen readers hating on them even though their characters aren’t true representations of who they are. I personally don’t support everything they do in stories so I can’t really answer this. However, I support everything they do in real life as long as they are happy and their actions aren’t against the codes of ethics.

TINA: Tomorrow headlines Jaejoong confirms he is in a relationship with a girl. How do you feel?
NHU: Dead and then alive again. My YunJae ship will still sail.

TINA: Asian celebrities often get married in secret and hide the fact they are indeed married..So one member of TVXQ is in that married status. How do you feel?
NHU: Curious. Just who could be so lucky to be loved by one of the best men in the entire universe?

TINA: How real is Yunjae and how much is in fact Fan service?
NHU: As real as the Earth is round.

TINA: Do you think Jaejoong is gay?
NHU: No, I think he is bi and Yunho is gay. Some might disagree and hate me for saying this, but it is my opinion. As per the norm, to each their own.

TINA: When Yunjae comes out publicly……..
NHU: I would be extremely happy, but worried for them and their safety.

TINA: Does yunho look gayer than Jaejoong?
NHU: Oh, yes. I definitely thing so. Not all the time though.

TINA: Do you think they meet secretly and still friends or even lovers?
NHU: Yes.

TINA: I heard Jaejoong song Nine is for Yunho even though he denied it?What do you think?
NHU: The songs that both parties sing/compose after the separation do seem to mean for one another.

TINA: What is about Yunjae that makes you sacrifice your time and energy upon writing fictions..
NHU: I just love them and I adore writing. It is a win-win situation.

TINA: Your future plans for fanfics?
NHU: I plan on stopping in the far future when I graduate from Pharmacy School, but I do not know the exact details yet. I love writing about them too much. However, real life can get busy and I do not want to start something and then abandoning it.

TINA: Thoughts on homosexuality?
NHU: I don’t mind it. People are entitled to do what they want as long as it does not harm others.

TINA: What do you think of people who think homo sexuality is a sin and a disease which can be cured?
NHU: To each their own.

TINA: What do you think we should do to make the world accept homosexuality?
NHU: I don’t like forcing my belief on others. They can believe what they want.

TINA: In the future your kid comes out to you. What will you do?
NHU: I will accept and love them the same.

TINA: Pride or love?
NHU: Pride.

TINA: Love to me is…………
NHU: Important.

TINA: Do you believe in love at first sight?
NHU: Yes.

TINA: What are your views on yoochun scandal?
NHU: I adore him regardless.

TINA: Since junsu has been public about his relation with a girl has Yoosu ship sunk?
NHU: I don’t really care much about the Yoosu ship. People are welcomed to think as they like. They can keep believing if they choose to and vice versa.

TINA: How did you react to the news of “Yoochuns” upcoming marriage?
NHU: I was sad at first but if he loves her and she loves him, I am all for it.

TINA: I have read somewhere that Jae and chun are looking more like lovers than friends..what do you think?
NHU: I secretly ship them together.

TINA: Are we deluding ourselves by making these OTP’s?
NHU: No.

SOME RANDOM QUESTIONS...

TINA: Opinions on plastic surgery?
NHU: I don’t really care for it.

TINA: Do you think jaejoong’s in famous beauty had help from the plastic surgeon?
NHU: I like him because of his voice, not his looks. Therefore, I don’t really have an opinion on the matter.

TINA: Why should we be obsessed with pop idols when they don’t even know we exist?
NHU: It’s a choice. People can love whoever or idolize whoever they choose to.

NHU: I started writing since I was in eighth grade. My first story featured SS501 and from there, I tried different genre before settling for YunJae.

TINA: What made you to sit down and actually write something?
NHU: Coffee feeds my inspirations. Normally, I write whenever I feel like it. My desire to write becomes intensified with songs that make me emotional.

TINA: What is the first fanfic you completed?

NHU: I honestly don’t know. .

TINA: What is the weirdest place you were struck by inspiration for your fanfic? Did you write the plot?If yes what is the title of the fanfic?

TINA: How do you think you have evolved creatively throughout the years? Do you notice any change in the way you write?
NHU: My grammar has improved.

TINA: How important are readers and their comments?
NHU: I like to get feedbacks but I don’t believe in begging for them or demanding my readers to comment.  It’s more of a loop system for me. I get ideas from reading the comments as well as useful suggestions. They help me improve myself.

END OF PART 1

GETTING TO KNOW KIMBAB_SSI......

PART 3 ALL ABOUT YUNAJE......

TINA: What does yunjae represent to you?
KIMMI: Happiness. Thinking, watching or writing about these two can make my foul mood of the day become better.

TINA: Why are we obsessed with Yunjae?
KIMMI: Because they have this indescribable intimacy when they were together. For me, Jung Yunho is my strong bias, and Jaejoong happened to be the closest member to him when they were still DB5K. Yunho used to be clinging and touchy when he was with Jae. And I’ve never seen he treated others like the way he treated Jaejoong.


TINA: Why is that Yunjae in stories can do anything and we support them?
(Ex: affair, Incest, home wrecker)
KIMMI: Because we can’t find the Yunjae in the story in reality.^^ So why not created something we wished for in reality in our own imaginary.

TINA: Tomorrow headlines Jaejoong confirms he is in a relationship with a girl. How do you feel?
KIMMI: Honestly, sad. But just think about if he is happy with the one he choose himself, so why not. Since love is the condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.

TINA: Asian celebrities often get married in secret and hide the fact they are indeed married.. So one member of TVXQ is in that married status. How do you feel?
KIMMI: Same here, will feel sad. But if they’re happy, then why not just accepted it. Though, we all know this thing will happened sooner or later.

TINA: How real is Yunjae and how much is in fact Fan service?
KIMMI: Just thinking, why a certain couple can be shipped and a fan service started, if they are not closest enough for the fans to spot their intimacy either behind or in front of the camera. For Yunjae, well there are uncounted videos of the proofs how real they are out there compared to other couples. ^^

TINA: Do you think Jaejoong is gay?
KIMMI: I prefer to keep my thought about this to myself. Sorry… ^^

TINA: When Yunjae comes out publicly……..
KIMMI: Fainted first. Then wake up and screaming ‘I know it!’.

TINA: Does yunho look gayer than Jaejoong?
KIMMI: Nope. Lol!

TINA: Do you think they meet secretly and still friends or even lovers?
KIMMI: Obviously, they did.

TINA: I heard Jaejoong song Nine is for Yunho even though he denied it?What do you think?
KIMMI: The lyric itself is enough to answer it all. Even he denied the rumor on public, we as the fans know.

TINA: What is about Yunjae that makes you sacrifice your time and energy upon writing fictions..
KIMMI: Happiness and enjoyment.

TINA: Your future plans for fanfics?
KIMMI: I’ll keep writing. There are a lot more in my ‘unposted stories’ folder. ^^

TINA: Thoughts on homosexuality?
KIMMI: I’m sorry. To be honest, I’m not too open about this kind of thing. Even watching others guyxguy couple, I feel awkward. But YunJae is exception. Isn’t it weird? The power of Yun & Jae I think. ^^

TINA: What do you think of people who think homo sexuality is a sin and a disease which can be cured?
KIMMI: They are still human being, nothing can’t be cured. It’s just about preference.

TINA: What do you think we should do to make the world accept homosexuality?
KIMMI: No comment.

TINA: In the future your kid comes out to you. What will you do?
KIMMI: Pouring them with endless love.

TINA: Pride or love?
KIMMI: Love!

TINA: Love to me is…………
KIMMI: Not just a mere feeling toward someone. It can also be toward something. Love is broad. When the small thing can make you happy, or someone can make you happy in away that nothing or nobody else could, then that’s love to you. To me, just do the thing that you love to do, and love someone that always be there for you.

TINA: Do you believe in love at first sight?
KIMMI: I don’t have experience in falling in love at first sight. So, I’m not sure. For me, it based on what you see on the exterior, what you see at first is what you love. But after you understand the person inside and out, that’s when you can decide either it’s a love or just temporary like.

TINA: What are your views on Yoochun's scandal?
KIMMI: Sabotage. Haters random judge just making its worse. I’ve read a lot of news regarding this same issue, not just k-pop idols, but also infamous korean actors. But still, when it happened to my favorite idol, I feel disappointed. But as a true and loyal fan, you know what’s true and false when you have been following them for ten years to understand them.

TINA: Since junsu has been in a relation with a girl has yoosu ship sunk?
KIMMI: Not really, I still found YooSu writers keep writing. ^^

TINA: How did you react to the news of “Yoochun's” upcoming marriage?
KIMMI: Shocked and sad, but at the same time glad that he had finally decided to settle down.

TINA: I have read somewhere that Jae and chun are looking more like lovers than friends..what do you think?
KIMMI: If there is another person who knows Jaejoong well than Yunho amongst the five, whom he can confide everything openly, then it would be Yoochun. If Yunho is his other half, then Yoochun is his soulmate. Everyone can tell this after watching DBSK couple talk show.

TINA: Are we deluding ourselves by making these OTP’s?
KIMMI: Well, delusions are necessary to our happiness as realities. How can we stop deluding ourselves if Yun and Jae keep making us to? Keep giving us the hints.^^ Believe it or not, sometime it could become reality. When I was a kid, I keep deluding myself to become I am now. Lol! So who knows, in the near future YunJae stepped out to announce, ‘Yes, we are real’. \(^o^)/


SOME RANDOM QUESTIONS...

TINA: Opinions on plastic surgery?
KIMMI: It’s like a facade that concealed a slightly unpleasant look of someone, in order to bring out their confidence. But for me, the pleasant thing that we seen outside doesn’t usually mirrored the inside. But sadly, nowadays plastic surgery becomes a trend.

TINA: Do you think jaejoong’s in famous beauty had help from the plastic surgeon?
KIMMI: This question has been asked a lot to him back then and his answer always be, ‘only my fans know’. ^^ I think he did a little on his eyelid. But no major surgery done since you could tell it’s natural or not by looking at his mother. If you see a picture of his biological mother, not the one that raised him since he was a kid. He resembles her a lot. Those pouty lips, pointy nose and those eyes! And his biological younger sister, just like Jaejoong in a girl version. ^^ His baby picture and grown up ones, not much different. Only when you were in a teen age, there would look a bit different. I think because of the changes of hormone. Lol! Even my picture during high school is unrecognizable by my colleagues who have had a look at it. XD

TINA: Why should we be obsessed with pop idols when they don’t even know we exist?
KIMMI: I don’t know what others’ opinion are. But for me, we start loving a certain idol because of their music, and followed with their character in real life. That does bring us enjoyment. So why not keep supporting them. They do know us exist from the support they received. (0_<)

Head out to Kimmi's AFF account to read her fanfics...KIMBAB_SSI

LET'S GET INTIMATE WITH KIMBAB_SSI.....

PART 2 ALL ABOUT WRITING FANFICTIONS.....

TINA:  How and when did you decide to be a fanfic author?
KIMMI:  This is one of the moments where I can’t even forget in my life! It happened just a day before one of my semester exam. I still remember I was studied for the exam while listening to dbsk songs and out of nowhere my mind was distracted; the urge to write about Yunjae came with the idea keep bugging my mind. I couldn’t block it out. Instead of study for the exam tomorrow, I ended up writing what was playing in my head in the middle of the night. I just need to get everything out of my mind before I lost my muse. ^^

TINA:  What made you to sit down and actually write something?
KIMMI:  When the muse came, and the mood and emotion just right to make me move my finger on the keyboard. It’s just happen and won’t stop until I run out of idea.

TINA:  What is the first fanfic you completed?
KIMMI:  The first fanfic I wrote is ‘Vacant of heart’, but the first completed is ‘Love on ride.’

TINA:  How did you get your idea for your first fanfic?
KIMMI:  It was that night before the exam. ^^ It was a very long time ago around 2008. If I’m not mistaken, it was when I listening to DBSK or should I say Tohoshinki’s song titled ‘forever love’, since it’s a song from their Japanese album. It’s a sad song, that’s why ‘vacant of heart’ came out to be a sad story. Lol.

TINA:  Have you had any prior experience of writing before your first fanfic?
KIMMI:  Nooo… blame it on YunJae! Because of them, my hand was itchy to write about them. Their friendship is something. And I solely write YunJae’s story, never write anything else beside this fandom. Let’s just say YunJae is my passion of writing.

TINA:  Have you ever plagued by doubts on your storyline?
KIMMI:  Always.

TINA:  How did you promote your fanfic to readers?
KIMMI:  Never promote them, just feel free to write and post. The readers who intrigue with the stories will keep following.

TINA:  Have you ever been anxious about how the readers receive your story?
KIMMI:  Always. It’s true that I write what I love to and freely post it up. But sometime there’s a feeling of doubting if what I wrote is something immature and there is no message in the story that could be deliver or worth writing. So, what’s the point of writing. ‘I write because I love it’ that’s true… but I don’t like it when the story doesn’t have the feeling that could touch the reader’s heart. That’s what I thought. But I know there’s a different between writing a fanfic and novel. Basically people come to read fanfic about their bias ones, that’s enough to give them the enjoyment.

TINA:  Thoughts on how you felt when you see the first comment on the first story? Do remember who is the first commenter?
KIMMI:  I do. I’m an observance type of person. The name is catzchii. ^^ Am I a creepy author to remember this? Lol. This person has been following me from winglin.net. Even that website also doesn’t exist anymore. I appreciate my readers and those who ever dropped comments. I would easily notice them. Because I even make a chart of how much readers I gain or loss for every chapter I’ve updated. From that I recognized each of my readers’ names. So, based on this I can see if the flow of the story was getting interesting or not. If the chart shows my subs number dropped, so I know that I need to revise the plotline instead of dropping the story, or delete it. This might sound too serious for writing a fanfic right…^^ But that’s how I grown with my writing, from a foolish type of story to mature ones. But now, I don’t have time to study like that anymore. Maybe later I will catch up again. Lol!

TINA:  How do you prepare yourself before writing a fanfic?
KIMMI:  No preparation. Once the idea bugging your head, just open anything… your tab, phone or laptop, then start typing!

TINA:  Do you work out plot line or do you prefer to see where your ideas or inspiration take you?
KIMMI:  Some fics I like the ideas or inspirations comes, just like ‘My boo is all I wanted’ or ‘My boo is all I need.’ But mostly I already see how the story will ended. For example like my fics ‘Clarity of love’ and ‘Indisputable love’, I’ve already arranged the plot line of the stories. If later another idea come, I’ll just revise them.

TINA:  When and how does your inspiration or muse come to you?
KIMMI:  Random. It just comes like that, and when that time happened, I just need to type it down on my phone.

TINA:  What is the weirdest place you were struck by inspiration for your fanfic? Did you write the plot?If yes what is the title of the fanfic?
KIMMI:  Mostly people brain will start roaming when they are in silence or alone right? So… most of the time at night before we sleep, or where else we could be alone if not in the toilet doing the business. Lol! I was in the toilet and that was when the idea for ‘Makeover’ came. XD

TINA:  How much research do you do for your story?
KIMMI:  Hmm… not much. Just when I feel the need to research on something I’m not exposed or used to for the character’s profession or something, I’ll study beforehand.

TINA:  What is the easiest part of writing?
KIMMI:  When there’s a gush of ideas, and your hand can’t stop typing.

TINA:  What is the hardest part of writing a story?
KIMMI:  When run out of ideas, and your hand stop typing.

TINA:  The writer’s worst nightmare the dreaded writer’s block.
When is the worst writer’s block you ever had? How did you overcome it?
KIMMI:  Oh, this is my weakness! It took me so long. Not days, months…but years. It happened on my first fanfic, ‘Vacant of heart’. That’s why the fic might be the first fanfic I write, but not the first one to complete. I do nothing, it just the feeling of dislike to finish what I’ve started is strong. So I forced myself to still write it even couldn’t see how it will end, and slowly the feeling and the muse comeback. I hate abandon the thing.

TINA:  Any useful tips on how to overcome the writer’s block?
KIMMI:  Hmm… I don’t know if it working on other writers, but for me I would watching Yunjae’s video, listening to any music that could inspired me based on its lyrics. But there’s another method that worked on me, I would usually reread my old completed fanfics so the inspiration will break my writer’s block. :D

TINA:  Have you written any collaboration with other author’s? If yes name of the fanfic.
KIMMI:  Nope.

TINA:  How do you describe your writing style? Do you think you have your own personal writing style?
KIMMI:  I prefer to write as a third person actually. And a very long chapter per update. But sometimes I’m afraid I just scribbled something unnecessary, the chapter becomes lengthy, and the reader getting bored of it.

TINA:  How do you think you have evolved creatively throughout the years? Do you notice any change in the way you write?
KIMMI:  Obviously I did notice. Just compared the first 3 fanfics I wrote with the latest ones. I admit that I feel embarrassed of my old fics. Some were badly written, in term of grammar. (>_<)

TINA:  How important are readers and their comments?
KIMMI:  As I’ve mentioned… My readers are my biggest supporters. Their comments are my source of encouragements. So, both are important.

TINA:  I have been a silent reader for few months before taking the steps to comment..Any words for silent readers?
KIMMI:  For silent readers, a simple word of ‘done reading’ also will do. At least I know, there’s more people have read what I wrote. :)

TINA:  Do you read other yunjae fanfics? If yes name of the fanfic you loved?
KIMMI:  Lots. There are lots of other awesome YunJae fanfics out there.  But the one that I love the most is the one that able to make me cry and woke up the next morning to class with red-swollen eyes a long ago. I cried so much when read it. It’s titled, ‘My Lovely Kim Jaejoong’. I don’t know… I love this story up until now. The story has it all, beautifully written, full of emotions, and well-plotted. It’s a very old story and the author has stop writing like since ages ago. For a fluff, cute adorable fanfics, my favourite are ‘Possessive’ and ‘Only the ring finger knows’. All these stories are written on winglin before. And some have been reposted on asianfanfic by other, I think.

TINA:  Are you friends with any other author’s?
KIMMI:  Yes… mostly here in aff.

TINA:  How do you make your stories standout when there are heaps of other stories with similar plot lines?
KIMMI:  I don’t know, because I never think any strategy for that. I just write it in my own style. The rest is all about the readers will keep following it or not.

TINA:  Has anyone stole your story and published under their name?
KIMMI:  Yes, I found few written in Indonesian, Vietnamese and Spanish. Some have emailed me personally, asking for permission. But some didn’t. At first I don’t understand why the poster of my stories could be on the foreign site, but when I google translate it was 100% a copy of my fic. That was when I decided to start locking my fics.

TINA:  Thoughts on others stealing your work?
KIMMI:  It was not nice to steal other people story and even the artwork without credit to its original author or creator.

TINA:  How do you manage your time between your daily activities and updating stories?
KIMMI:  Ugh, I hate this question… because I failed to manage my time that’s why I keep being on hiatus. Don’t ask me this, because the only answer I could give is failure. T_T

TINA:  Do you have any favorite time of the day to write stories?
KIMMI:  Yesss… at night when everyone sleep. ^^

TINA:  your favorite genre to write?
KIMMI:  Romance, drama, fluff!


ALL ABOUT THE STORIES............

TINA:  Tells us a few words on the fanfic “LOVE ON RIDE”.Inspiration behind this fanfic?
KIMMI: This one is inspired by a shojou  manga (comic) I forgot the title. It’s been so long, about yunjae high school life.

TINA: Few words on the fanfic
“THIS CLUMSINESS”.
KIMMI:  At first I just feel the need to write about JaeSu. More like a brotherly relationship, but then it turn out to be so dramatic once Yunho also get into the story. Lol! And I like to make a slight twist to the story.

TINA: Tell us about
“VACANT OF HEART”?
KIMMI:  I just feel the urge to write about Jaejoong getting revenge on Yunho who was already in a crushed state. Sometime I can be a sadistic author when the mood comes. ^^

TINA:  Inspiration behind the fanfic
“HE IS ALL THAT”?
KIMMI:  This fanfic is a mixed of my idea and a manga titled ‘Hot gimmick’.

TINA: Few words on the fanfic
“CLARITY OF LOVE”?
KIMMI:  My first Yunjae forcedly-married fanfic. The feeling when write this story is always overwhelming! A bittersweet feeling.

TINA: Tells us about the fanfic
“BACK TO TOMORROW”. thoughts and inspiration behind the fanfic?
KIMMI:  It started with the feeling to write about Yunjae in a student-teacher relationship. And after keep pondering into it, the idea just expanded itself.

TINA: Few words on the fanfic
“MY BOO IS ALL I WANTED”.
KIMMI:  This is the only fanfic that I don’t have any plotline arranged. Just write it without knowing how it’s going to end.

TINA: Can we hope for an update in the near future for the sequel

“MY BOO IS ALL I NEED”?
KIMMI:  Yes, I’m going to update it soon.

TINA: Few words on the fanfic
“MAKEOVER”?
KIMMI:  I've fun when write this one. Maybe because the story is not too heavy. I’ve plan to write an epilogue tho.

TINA: Few words on the three shot
“STILL”. inspiration behind this bitter sweet fanfic.
KIMMI:  Oh, this one… how to say it. It's my first dead-fic ever. The idea of writing it just popped up in my mind when I was listening to this korean song, ‘walking through the time of remembrance’ by Nell. When I listened to it while study the lyric, the idea of this story just came to me smoothly.

TINA:  Still writing or have you stopped now?
KIMMI:  Still writing.

TINA:  Any future yunjae fanfics you are working on?
KIMMI:  What a question… haha… For now, I have three-shot fanfic. It’s already complete but I’m afraid to post it because I have another long-awaited-unfinished fanfics line up to be update, my readers will throw a tantrum if I ever dare to post a new one when others are not updated like ages. (>_<)  But, still considering posting it soon since it’s already done.


All ABOUT SMUT.....

TINA: Tells us why are we so interested to read taboo topics when it comes to yunjae? Ex.incest ,cheating,home wrecker etc.
KIMMI:  It’s because we’ve been craving to watch their interaction again, or due to our passion or obsess toward the couple? I don’t know about everyone else, but for me it’s simply because of Yunho and Jaejoong we discussed about. For a fan that has been following them for so long, we know how close they are even before their debut, during those years of training. And what kind of life and hardships they have been through together. Even watching a small interaction of these two could bring an excitement and feeling warm inside.

TINA:  How difficult or easy is writing smut?
KIMMI:  Very difficult for me who rarely write it. Lol. Truthfully… I’m not a smut writer. My readers know… most of my fics are clean to read. ^^ Only few fics that I feel the need to write smut and have a reason to do so, then I’ll do. I’m not into smut actually.

TINA:  Do you blush or get embarrassed while writing smut?
KIMMI:  Hmm… just feel natural after tried to dismiss that embarrassment. XD

TINA:  How do you write the sex scene? What is the inspiration?
KIMMI:  Haha… what a difficult question… seriously making me feel awkward. ^^ Well, just read ones from other YunJae’s story.

TINA:  Have you ever watched GV(gay videos) before writing a smut scene? (U can choose to ignore this if u doesn’t want to answer)
KIMMI: Oh, honestly never.

TINA:  Has any family member or friends have ever walked on you while writing a sex scene?
KIMMI:  Never.

TINA:  Thoughts after writing your first ever sex scene?
KIMMI:  I have a doubt to delete the chapter. Lol!

TINA:  What is the secret of writing a sex scene that turns on your readers?
KIMMI:  I don’t think it will make anyone turn on. My smut-writing is not that smutty. I would love to call it a love-making, rather than just blindly write without a reason. Usually I’ll write it when a certain part in the chapter needed it.

TINA:  It is so heart breaking when u see your favorite authors deleting their journals or accounts, taking away the chance to reread some of your favorite stories… and having those wonderful stories lost.. Have you anytime in future have plans on deleting your journal?
KIMMI:  No…

TINA:  Any words for the readers?
KIMMI: I’m back now and IL (Indisputable Love will be constantly updated by now).


END OF PART 2.
