If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach.

When I write a story, what do you immediately look for?

Hopefully there are people out there who remember when I actually, you know, wrote stories.

Children as entertaining characters that still actually feel like real children. Interesting and non-cliched plots, usually something very smart that fits seamlessly into canon. Smart and witty dialogue.

Spot on character voices and a warmth in the narrative.

By the latter I mean your stories always have a wonderful undercurrent of optimism and, yeah, warmth is the best word I can think of right now. It's always within the canon limits and never saccharine.

in the sense of "what do I expect in your writings?"...a sense of continuity, of being on good terms with the source material, and a feeling of closure/completion at the end of the fic.

I don't need to look for those, because they are always present in what you write.
