i've been re-reading some fic i wrote, and i realised i never did the fic memes for '12 and '13! i wish i could do one for '14, but ha. ha. ha. so here's 2012 in fic! (i took out some of the questions that no longer make sense answering.)

fics completed this year:
7. hides face.

looking back, did you write more fic than you thought you would this year, less, or about what you'd predicted?
alllllways less. but apparently, i got myself a proper sleeping schedule, which means i can no longer write! yay... i only write when i consciously wreck that schedule, which doesn't happen very often.

what pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in january 2012?
i guess either b5 or tng. didn't think i'd write either, but i did. certainly didn't think i'd write so much b5, word-wise.

what's your favourite story of the year? not the most popular, but the one that makes you happiest?
be your harbour, stargate sg-1, team, pg. i love this for the team-ness. it might be my favourite fic i've ever written. stargate makes me happy, ergo writing team fic makes me happy. it's the kind of fic i'd want to read.

runner's up for favourite story:
once like a spark, sanctuary, helen/will, pg. i can't even really say why, and i'm not even fully happy with the writing, but i enjoyed creating it a lot.

did you take any writing risks this year? what did you learn from them?
writing in new fandoms always feels like a risk to me, and i learned, yet again, that it's okay.

my best story this year:
probably also be your harbour, stargate sg-1, team, pg. it's not often that my fave story is also my best story, but i think i got the characters and their relationships down right, for the most part.

story most under-appreciated by the universe, in my opinion:
any of the b5 fics, maybe, because there's so few of us fans? then again, the few people who do read always leave the loveliest feedback. ♥ i felt very appreciated in 2012.

most fun story:
the end, or where it begins, leverage, nate/sophie, r. nate and sophie are such fun! i mean, the entire scene behind this fic was a lot of fun, and i loved dissecting it and filling in the gaps (and gasps). i miss writing these two, actually. should get back on that wagon eventually.

most sexy story:
there's a drumming noise inside my head, babylon 5, john/delenn, nc17. disneyotp blow job. is all i am sayin'.

story with single sexiest moment:
our rain-washed histories, star trek tng, picard/crusher, r. despite having written fifty reasons to have sex for disneyotp, i actually think this one has the sexiest moment? picard and crusher on desks and against walls. ahem ahem.

story with single sweetest moment:
probably once like a spark, sanctuary, helen/will and gen, pg. helen smiling at will is alllllways sweet lbr. and that bit about shakespeare just makes the scene complete, imho.

"holy crap, that's *wrong*, even for you" story:
here we are, light unshown, babylon 5, john/delenn and gen, pg13. i guess i have to write one kill-someone-off story every year? this time, i did it to delenn. oops? but i also killed off pretty much everyone else in the 'verse. oops².

hardest story to write:
well, i spent a lot of time on various fics, but i don't think any were particularly hard to write. they took a while, yes, but they weren't difficult per se.

easiest story to write:
every eye trained on a different star, star trek tng, beverly crusher, r. a lot of that came very easily to me, for whatever reason, which is weird because it's very angsty compared to what i usually write. but i was just so deep in bev's head-space at the time.

this year's theme and the story that demonstrates it most:
sex sex sex sex sexxxxxxxx. emotion in motion, babylon 5, john/delenn, r. it's called 'fifty reasons to have sex' for a reason.
