Fic Written:

Sailor Moon
Us and Them - Complete
This Sweet Madness - Chapters 4-8 + Epilogue & four intermissions
This Glorious Sadness - Chapters 1, 2, + 1 intermission.

Dragon Age
Oh Hell I Don't Know - Dragon Age - Drabble
Zevran thing - Dragon Age - Unpublished Drabble
The Lucky Ones - Dragon Age - in progress

Miscellaneous
What People do to Other Souls - Resident Evil - mostly finished, unposted - cowritten
Solving for X - Green Hornet - Complete
Relief - Harry Potter - Complete
White Blank Page - Harry Potter - eh?


Looking back, did you write more fic than you thought you would this year, less, or about what you'd predicted?

It doesn't look like much, but given that TSM & TGS are massive (each the size of a novel), I'd say it's about what I predicted. Though I had hoped to finish another chapter of TGS.  ...still have a few days to do that.

What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January 2011?

Dragon Age.  XD I didn't even know it existed.  Though of those I did know existed, I think Green Hornet is more surprising.  I was never into super heros.

What's your favorite story of the year? Not the most popular, but the one that makes you happiest?

This Glorious Sadness. It's come a long way, and the fact that it is actually going to be finished is just...thrilling.  Now if only I can do this with original work. XD

Did you take any writing risks this year? (See above for unexpected pairings, etc.) What did you learn from them?

I'm equally worried over some of the subject matter in TGS and UaT, though as UaT is complete and no one has throttled me for it, I can stop worrying there.  I try to be as respectful to foreign cultures as I can, but writing the culture clash can lead into dangerous territory sometimes. 

Do you have any fanfic goals for the New Year?

Finish TGS, What People do to Other Souls (if I can get my co-writer to comply), and The Lucky Ones.  If I can finally knock out Adventures in Tokyoland I'll be happy.

My Favorite Story:
This Glorious Sadness

My Best Story:
Us and Them or Solving for X

Story Most Underappreciated by the Universe:
Repeating myself from past years:  Let me go on record as saying that I HATE this question. But as I can't get myself to edit it out of the meme just cause I don't like it...

...I actually don't have an answer for this.  Really, I don't.  They're all about equally appreciated, or else haven't been published.

Most Fun:
Solving for X.  Which makes sense, because it's pure angst.

Most Disappointing:
White Blank Page.  I have ideas~ but no inclination to write on it.

Most Sexy and Best Sexy Moment:
Us and Them. That it's the only one which has any kind of sexy moment in it at all helps.

Hardest to Write:
Toss up between Us and Them, and The Lucky Ones.  UaT had a word limit on it because of Ficathon and it was murder trying to wrap it up appropriately while staying within the limit.  TLO is another of those I have all the ~ideas~ about, but piecing them together is like pulling teeth. 

Most Unintentionally Telling
I still have trouble figuring out what "telling" means in this context.  As in Show-Don't-Tell or...idk.  The one that has more of your personal feelings in than you intended?  Either way, I'm gonna be a little egotistical and say that I don't think any of them fall into either category.  :/  It's one of the few things I'm proud of.

Cause i can. :P

Stolen from [info]satine86 

The WIP meme: post a single sentence from each WIP you have (or as many as you want to pick). No context, no explanations.

Today I'm picking 7 5, because those are the ones I listed earlier (and which i can show parts of).

So I'm stealing this meme from [livejournal.com profile] charliechaplin2 (and unlike Lytton, I'm going to do this properly ;D).

This is how it goes:

1) Make a list of 30 characters.
2) Assign each character a number.
3) Without telling anyone who's on the list or the character's assigned number, get questions from your flist about what they'd like to know about them.
EXAMPLE: "Could 10 successfully assassinate 11 with nothing but a piece of paper and a rubber band? Who is most likely to order the assassination of 11 - 1 or 20? If 10 fails their mission, who would be next in line for the job - 2 or 16" (The more random and complicated the better!)
4) Post the answers and who was who on the list.
5) Profit.

So, I've made my list, and now hopefully someone will ask me some questions. XD  Whoo!

OK, this is adorable, I just have to.  XD



The one who seduced you, and fucked you over, and broke your heart in a million pieces and laughed about it: 
Supernatural

The old flame you don't see very often any more but whom you still really enjoy getting together with for a few drinks and maybe a pleasant nostalgic romp in the sheets:  Gundam Wing

The mysterious dark gothy one with whom you used to sit up talking until 3 a.m. at weird coffeehouses and with whom you were quite smitten until you realized they really were fucking crazy:   Fushigi Yuugi

The steady: Sailor Moon 

The ex:   Gravitation

The alluring stranger whom you've flirted with at parties but have never gotten really serious with:   Avatar: TLAB

Name a character in any of my fandoms and I'll tell you 3-4 things about them from my personal fanon-take on said character. (Per usual, "from any of my fandoms" can be "any fictional character you think I'm familiar with" though it's possible I won't have an ANSWER).

Meme stolen from [info]koushi:

Based entirely on my personality (so block what I really look like out of your mind), hunt down a "played by" who you think would best represent me. Reply here with the picture or link.


XD I have to admit, this sounds cute.

Actually, a second one to try and get past my insane writer's block:



I've got a list of 15 of my favorite 'ships (that I can/will write) - some are slash, some are femslash, some are het, one's a threesome! Ask me questions, or give me scenarios involving those characters (Like: What happens when 1 and 11 go on a double date? How do 9 and 15 handle an alien invasion? 3 goes shopping for sex toys.). I will answer them and hilarity will ensue.

Ships/Fandom:

Rei-Jadeite (sailor moon)
Duo-Wufei (Gundam Wing)
Heero-Relena (Gundam Wing)
Katara-Aang (Avatar)
Trowa-Quatre (Gundam Wing)
Duo-Relena-Heero (Gundam Wing)
Sora-Riku (Kingdom Hearts)
Faye-Jet (Cowboy Bebop)
Stan-Kyle (South Park)
Billy-Becca (Resident Evil)
Jill-Chris (Resident Evil)
Harry-Draco (Harry Potter)
Hermione-Ron (Harry Potter)
Annabelle-Percy (The Olympians)
Tauski-Suboshi (Fushigi Yuugi) [If anyone else in the world ships this, I will be horrendously surprised]
