Question from Ask Me Anything: 

penumbria asks: How do you write the same characters in different stories and stay true to their canon personas (so they aren’t OCs with the name of the canon character) but still keep them different without becoming Mary Sue or Gary Stu? In your head, what do you do to separate them from story to story. Like Harry in War Mages versus Harry in Serpent King vs Harry in Phoenix. Or Snape in War Mages, Serpent King, Unspeakable Plot, Soulmate Bond, and Phoenix? Or Elizabeth where some stories she is awesome (Sentinels of Atlantis) and others not so much, the same with Keller. How do you keep it straight in your head without falling into a rut that makes stories all the same with only a few details different because the characters are the same and react to each other the same way? How do you keep your personal head canon from bleeding all over every story in a fandom? It is something I know I struggle with. I’d love some advice because your stories handle it well.

Tonight's Required but Not Used Short Pitch: Déjà vu is usually a glitch in the Matrix.
