Q: Is Ophelia your real name?
A: No. As I state on my Wattpad profile as well as on most of my other social media, it’s just a pseudonym. I don’t have to use it anymore because almost everyone I know in real life knows of my Wattpad account, but I still like to use it. My real name is Lara.
Q: Why is your blog name maerchenbruch?
A: It’s actually my username on most of my social media. Before that, I used ‘TheNightTimeWriter’ because that’d been my Wattpad username, but at some point I made a German Twitter account and used this as a username. I really liked it so I changed most of my usernames. (Meaning: Maerchen – fairytale, Bruch – breach.) By the way, this is my English Twitter account.
Q: Why did you start a blog?
A: I don’t really know, honestly. I just like writing, I suppose, and I don’t always want to write fiction.
Q: When/why/how did you start writing?
A: I’ve always liked to write. When I was little, I wrote stories about fairies or sparkly vampires or whatever — usually in German because my English wasn’t very good then. In the beginning of 2014, I got really into this TV show, Supernatural, and I entered the fandom world. With that world comes fanfiction. I didn’t really like the idea at first because I liked the story of the show as it was, however, when one of my favourite Instagram fan accounts (this one) started writing a fic, I read it. It was pretty good so I decided to write one, too. I wrote four Supernatural fics, and one of them was actually quite popular. Then my account was deleted. I started a new one, but I never wrote a fanfiction again. I might start again, though.
