Holy Mother of Hotness, Batman! hackthis finished Telegraph Avenue! Read it, die of the hot, die of the cute, develop sycophantic adoration for the author, etc. etc.

And then there's this meme that really interests me. I've been wondering things along these lines since musesfool's thought provoking post on style preferences earlier this week.

What kind of work is my name -- Nifra Idril -- associated with? What kind of assumptions do you make about a piece of writing, fiction or non, if you see my name on it?

Nota bene: This is emphatically NOT an attempt to fish for compliments. I'm not trying to get judgements on the quality of my work, but rather about its other characteristics.

For example, if you were given the name of an actor, that might make you think of a certain genre of film he or she is often in or a type of character.

What is Nifra Idril brand writing?

Your dialogue/interior monologue is what I tend to think of first. It's always totally in character, very witty, and just... bouncy. It flows and moves very well, without seeming contrived or OOC.

And, yes, your Clark characterization is definitely one of my favorites. It seems accurate, but more than accurate. Like, what he's like beyond what we see on the show (and don't bother pointing out that he technically *doesn't* exist beyond what we see on the show, because I won't listen).

You're also very good at setting the scene, I always get a feeling of space in your stories, like I can almost imagine the settings.

Great Clark/Lex interactions/characterizations and a liberal dose of sexiness.

In addition to what's already been said here about Clark, whom you write with a humorous accuracy all your own, I would like to add that to me, your name represents beautiful, poetic short stories like A Pale Distance, What You Are Like in the Rain and A Formal Feeling Comes (is that the title?). I think that's actually the aspect of your writing that speaks to me most - the bittersweet moments caught with words so lovely that they hurt. That's Nifra to me - sometimes the dorkily funny, sometimes the breathtakingly moving and sad.
