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.
