2 new tattoos- that has nothing to do with fic, I just wanted to point it out




My favourite story this year (of my own): Observations. Y'all, I love that fic so hard. It was kind of a bastard to write, but I feel like it really came off, and that's incredibly satisfying.

My best story this year: Gah. That's like picking between your kids. Honestly, I might have to say Epilogue. It does exactly what it's intended to do with pinpoint precision. Alternately, I'd say Order, which has the tightest construction, but it won't be a really great story until the whole verse is finished. I got plans.

Most successful fic: Oddly enough, probably New Beginnings. It got probably 30+ comments at the Kink Meme and ten at Objection.

Story most tragically underappreciated by the universe, in my opinion: Primitive Science. I've gotten nary a comment on it (hint, hint, anvil), and that makes me sad. Despite being my first real attempt at SGA fic, I'm really pleased at how McKay's voice turned out.

Most fun story: Accessories. I think I was giggling the whole time I wrote it. The Prostitute Quandary was also loads of fun.

Most sexy story: Sex, Lies, and Videotape. The thing I really like about that story is Apollo's helplessness. It could have had a very different, much darker feel, but putting Apollo sort of between the porn and the reader lightens it up a lot. Also, Klavier gangbang.

Story with single sexiest moment: From Free of Charge:

"Wright leaned back against the door, waiting for Edgeworth to finally formulate a coherent sentence. He lazily swept a finger over the corner of his mouth, catching a stray drop of come and trailing it across his tongue, and Edgeworth suddenly forgot what he had been trying to say in the first place."

Y'all.

Most unintentionally *telling* story: I'll Come Meet Your Plane. It is, to me, the saddest story I've ever written, because that's how I've felt since I was thirteen and first stepped on an airplane. It's me at my very worst.

For less srs bizness, Nothing Like It. It has been so long since I did it with a girl (or... anybody, for that matter) I'm not even sure where stuff goes anymore.

"Holy crap, that's wrong, even for you" story: Find the Time. It's made of pure evil.

Story that shifted my own perceptions of the characters: In paradisum. I don't often consider Superman's motivations, nor his characterization, because I just don't really write him a lot.

Hardest story to write: Ilex vomitoria, hands down, no question. I tried and tried and tried with that story, and it just never did what I wanted. I really do like how it turned out, but it's not where I wanted to go with it. Also a bitch was Rather Be a Hammer than a Nail from The Roots of Rhythm Remain, cause John House is damn hard to write.

Worst story: This year, I didn't write anything I'm not proud of; that's not a cop out, because I have written stuff before that I wasn't proud of and never wanted to read again. Comparatively, though, I might have to say Complement. I just don't think it worked like I wanted it to; Plus ca change gets more done with more style in a quarter of the wordcount.

Easiest story to write: The first half of Aces High. I flew through that shit. Boxing Day was quite easy as well.

Story I’d like to revise: Of stories still in progress, The Scientific Method. I just don't know what's wrong with it, but I've been stumped on it for a couple of months. Of completed stories, New Beginnings. The ending it currently has was not the original one; I changed it because I felt it was OOC for Edgeworth, but the ending now seems OOC for more people as a result. But then, I don't really revise.

Story I didn’t write but will at some point, I swear: Girl. I got a list as long as your arm. I usually do a WIP cleanout at the end of the year, but I haven't this year, so I have like, five fics ready to go in the next couple of weeks.

Final thoughts: Overall, I'm really happy with my output this year. I didn't realize what a range of fandoms I'd covered until I actually sat down and did this index. I wrote stuff I never said I would- apocalypse fic, a story over 10000 words, Jeeves/Wooster. Here's hoping I can keep up next year (and not fail out of graduate school).

OH! I did not even put together that you were the one who wrote that. I really did love that story - I was telling my roommate about it when we were watching these two cute guys hold hands in town. I always wish there was so subtle way I could be like yay!cute guys holding hands!

Ahahaha, I am glad!

I was about to leave a comment and then I clicked on your Big Bang fic again, and couldn't stop reading! Fell in love with all over again.

I'm glad I've (finally- what took me so long?) friended you and will get to see all your great writing in '09.

Aww, you're making me embarassingly blushy-faced.

Quick note, the link for `Knot` leads to `I'll Come Meet Your Plane`.
