|02:50 pm - The year of fic in review|
Borrowed from jedibuttercup:
We've done the journal-in-review thing. How about the fic I wrote this year?
the fic year in review
I certainly wrote more than I expected to. Most were short, though, ficlets only, and I had to take some ribbing from friends for writing fan fiction instead of working harder on my original fiction. A few of the stories I am deeply proud of—even if I think my best work this year was done on stories that are either not yet complete or haven’t been posted.
stories i wrote this year:
In chronological order (completed, or standalone series fragments):
1. Stargate SG-1: Impossible Questions
2. Stargate SG-1: Roll With the Punches
3. Stargate SG-1: Chaapa’ai
4. Midrash (Biblical fic), Maundy Thursday: In The Grove
5. Midrash (Biblical fic), Good Friday: There Will Be No Miracle
6. CSI: Negative Space
7. CSI: In The Dark
8. SG-1: Interim Choices
9. CSI: Aftermath (Sara): I’m Fine, Thanks
10. CSI: Aftermath (Ecklie): Considerations
11. Invisible Man Virtual Season: You’ve Got To Do It Yourself
12. Harry Potter: Home For Halloween
13. Serenity: Haikus (for Hoban Washburn)
14. Serenity: Flying Lessons
15. The Sentinel: Scents of Celebration
16. Numb3rs: What’s Mine Is Yours
My new WIP's were:
League of Intergalactic Cosmic Champions (every 4th chapter): Never Fade Away
my favourite story this year (of my own):
my best story this year:
Home For Halloween
story most underappreciated by the universe, in my opinion:
most fun story:
story with single sexiest moment:
I write gen! There’s some innuendo in You’ve Got To Do It Yourself, but I wouldn’t say a “sexy” moment (though I-Man does contain, in canon, one of the sexiest TV moments I’ve seen, lol).
hardest story to write:
There Will Be No Miracle (sheer difficulty)
most unintentionally telling story:
I’m Fine, Thanks
most "OHMIGOD HEY *I* WROTE THAT" fanon-turned-canon moment:
I did have one of these, but not from a finished story. I have the beginning of a CSI case story, in which Greg and Sara work a crime scene that turns out to be contaminated and are rushed out by HazMat… And the same thing happened to those 2 characters in the late season 5 episode “4X4” (although I put Sara in the hospital, muahaha). Sheesh.
looking back, did you write more fic than you thought you would did this year, less, or about what you'd predicted?
I think I finished more fic than I’d expected to…but they weren’t the longer ones I’d been hoping to finish. I absolutely wrote more words than I’d expected to, due to ficathons, NaNoWriMo, and my I-Man VS episode.
what pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in january 2005?
“Genre”? Baby-fic, holiday-fic. And I gave Blair an OFC wife. And I wrote “Firefly” and “Numb3rs” fic.
what's your favorite story of the year?
Numb3rs: Skewed, by sammac
OR Serenity: What River Knows, by lizbee
did you take any writing risks this year?
I did NaNoWriMo, and though I didn’t manage 50,000 in thirty days, I did get to 28,080. I also tried two ficathons, and discovered that deadlines are still the bane of my existence. That means I’m going to do more ficathon stories in 2006, because I need to beat this.
I also recently took a risk in writing a couple of fics that touch on a subject I don’t enjoy. A personal first; both fics are still in rewrite.
do you have any fanfic or profic goals for the new year?
I would love to reach this time next year having finished a first draft of my original mystery screenplay, the first overhaul of my Sentinel novel that I started for NaNo, and…I don’t know… other fun fics. Like the Firefly fic I’m supposed to be working on right now for the Finishathon.

"Chaapa'ai" seemed quite well-recieved.

So it was... on LJ. Because my LJ friends are discerning like that. :-)
But when I put it up with the rest of my stuff on fanfiction.net, it got one review, and the hit counter puts it pretty much lowest (iirc) out of all of my stories there (at least recently written stories). And I think it's one of my best ever.
I suppose a slightly more truthful answer would have been "CSI: Aftermath (Ecklie): Considerations" because nobody really seemed to notice it here, but I also know that it's very much a side-note sort of story even in that fandom, so I expected that.
