Fan Fic Writing Questions and Answers.


Stephen Hawking

Recommended Posts

Can anyone remember, on what day of the week the girls gather at Penny's, to drink wine, tell stories, watch embarrassing Youtube videos, read Amy's LHOTP fanfiction, etc.?

I don't think it's ever been specified, and I don't think it's a regular thing.  It may be independent of the guys' schedule, because I don't think it always coincides with the guys getting together for any specific thing.

Does Amy have a tea box, a tea caddy, or does she keep them in the packet they came in?

I cannot recall.  I'm sure it's not a problem to write that she does.   Perhaps she bought one or Sheldon gave her one as a gift since they drink so much tea together.   Just because we don't see it on the show does not mean it cannot be present in your story.

In that case, can someone suggest a simple game, or activity, know in America?

If it helps, the line is from Penny, directed at Sheldon and Amy, and reads:-

“For heavens sake, you two. You could complicate a game of snap”.

The simplest card game I know is "Go Fish".

@Stephen Hawking: My mother is English by birth, raised the first 26 years of her life there, and I had to look this idiom up! I had not heard this one before!

Instead, I would suggest try "talking a mile a minute" for a more American feel, to describe an overly talkative person, especially someone who is doing so in an overexcited or over emotional state.

I hope this helps!

In America, do taxis pull up at the kerb, or is there some other term for the edge of the sidewalk, where taxis stop, to pick up and deliver passengers?

Americans call it a curb and yes that is usually where you would be dropped off.  It's also where you would "hail" or "waive down" a taxi to get a ride.

There is also a thing know as a "taxi stand".  They are usually found at airports, train & bus stations and sometimes large hotels.  The taxis queue up and you enter the first taxi in line.   Once your taxi has left to take you to your destination, taxi #2 in the queue becomes taxi #1 and so on and so on.

Taxis that have made a drop off at the location circle around and go to the back of the queue.  Empty taxis that arrive at the location go to the back of the queue and wait their turn.

I hope this helps.

It also can depend on what city you're in.  I don't know about LA, but in some cities, you can't flag down a taxi at the curb but must telephone for a taxi to pick you up at any particular address.  They are readily available at airports, and maybe some hotels or restaurants, but may or may not be driving around the streets like they are in NYC.

In a big city like LA, it's more likely that you could flag down a passing taxi, but I'm not sure.

How would you describe the look Amy had, when she learns Sheldon made her his screensaver, In Cooper Extraction?

I'm talking about the look she gives, just  as she says "Oh wow, I had no idea".

It's so cute, but I can't find a way to describe it.

 

 

 

serendipitous delight at Sheldon's sublime veneration...

 

That's all I got...

Thanks, but I need to describe her look, when she learns Sheldon told Penny, that he loves Amy, and doesn’t know what he’d do without her.

I thought the "Oh wow, I had no idea" look, was the perfect reaction.

Amy's face bloomed with astonished delight.
