Pro of writing fic for a video game: Can take as much time as you like studying (many) locations, outfits, characters' faces etc., rather than trying to extrapolate a whole room from a 0.3 second peek over somebody's shoulder.

Con of writing fic for a video game: Very difficult to go back and check specific lines of dialogue, gestures etc., since you pretty much have to play through to a given point to see the scene again (or save really really frequently so you have set points to play from to check but you can't name your saves and it's easy to overwrite things by accident). Or there's youtube clips but Shepard always has the wrong face and sometimes the wrong voice and I can't choose the conversation forks/interrupts.

This is a long-winded way of saying that my creative brain has swung back around to words-making and I have several nearly complete fics waiting for me to reach certain scenes before I can share them (downside is I am writing on my iPod on transit and between/in classes rather than knitting so nothing gets knit). Seriously, one is completely done except for the first two lines of dialogue.
