It would be super difficult to write using someone else's characters. When an author imagines characters, they imagine things about that character they aren't explicitly going to state in the story. That person comes to life in their head as full fledged person. I have no idea about the character Rachel from any other stand point of just reading your story and hearing your limited (that's a relative term, in this case relative to actually having thought of the character myself) description.
Anyone who asks to use a character, would only really be using the name, and the association others held with the name. The new author would be completely redoing an entire character. So much to the point that it wouldn't even be the same character.
This is why novels that are translated from books are always better if the author has some sort of creative participation, they are able to give the casting directors insights into what they imagined the character to be outside of what was written.
Doll's post intrigued me.=D
Exactly, I never wanted my stories embellished. I know how I see my characters and I'm quite possessive of them- if there is such a thing as being possessive about a fictional character.

This reminds me of the Y2K scare of 1999 and all the "predictions" that went along with that. I'm not sure what's worse, the people who make the predictions or the media feeding and/or analyzing them.

I've gotten a few as well. I ignore them, but I think I'll start deleting from my friends list if it becomes a constant. It is very annoying to say the least.
Topic What kind of a writer are you?

Do you tend to have recurring themes (or characters) in all your erotic stories?
--Yes, I use the same two characters all the time. I'm incredibly fixated on the male character and he is based on a real person. I'm trying to write about other characters, but it's very difficult. My fixation gets in the way and I don't mind one bit.
Do you prefer writing stroke fiction or do you aspire to creating high end and complex literary tales?
-- I love writing fiction. I'm a simple person. I like to keep it simple.
Does your style involve the use of humour, quirkiness, or tongue-in-cheek satire?
--I like humor in sex, so I try to keep that element in.
Do you relish the dirty details or do you prefer to leave more to the imagination during sex scenes?
--I try to keep a middle ground on that one.
Do you prefer writing stories with romance and intimacy?
--I prefer raw sex, but the love is still there.
Do you mainly write true-life tales from your sexual past?
Nah, none of this ever happened.

For me personally, not thinking about the story helps. I mentally put the story on the back burner and revisit the idea a few days later. More often than not, I'm able to run with an idea.
