(no subject)

  • Ariel's doing a crush meme? I sort of want to do it too but I'm all burnt out on memes at the moment. Blargh. But if anybody wanted to tell me something anonymously they could. Oh, and by the way? Everyone who commented on my fictional letters meme--you all have delighted me tremendously. Thank you very much. ♥

  • soundczech's Tezuka/Ryoma fic has taken over my life and has been consuming me day and night, basically. I am planning on taking off the night to review it. I have this whole huge post on Prince of Tennis to make too, that I have been working on for a week. It is supposed to be this newbie introduction post, but it is so BIG that people keep telling me to break it up and post it in parts. And what sort of introduction would that be? But at the same time, I really want to do it justice. Maybe I should just post all the relevant links first and worry less about commentary? :-< life.

  • You know what I think would be cool? A Cliche challenge. Or 30_cliches, or any sort of thing like the Harlequin challenge! I want Tezuka and Ryoma to have to pretend to be boyfriends! Or rentboy!Draco fics! Because really, can you ever have enough Rentboy!Draco? No. No, you cannot.

  • Here is that end-of-year meme that has been going around. I gacked it from mousapelli, who is awesome.

    2005 fics in Review:
    Total number of stories I wrote & posted last year: 70. The full list is Collapse )

  • My favorite story (of my own): Everything That Falls, because we hold close to us what we sweat and bleed over, and stuff.
  • My best story this year: probably Everything That Falls or The Properties of Voyeurism.
  • Most tragically underappreciated: I shall say A Whole New Apocalypse, just because I like it.
  • Most fun: all the Tenipuri Crack!fics.
  • Single Sexiest Moment: I think it would have to be this one, from Name: Collapse )
  • Most Unintentionally Telling Story: Probably Episode Nine: Creation. I never have written sci-fi before? And I think the result was really sort of ...well, interesting at least.
  • Holy Crap That's Wrong Even for You: Ovaltine.
  • Story that shifted my perceptions of the characters: definitely Hearthfires and Holocausts. Draco always does this to me.
  • Hardest to write: tie between Everything That Falls and The Last Most Beautiful Day in the World. The details in both of these stories just *killed* me; the time crunch on the second and the emotional intensity of the first left me absolutely drained.
  • Worst Story: Let the Poets Pipe of Love. I wouldn't say that I think it's awful, because I wouldn't want to insult the process of writing it or the person for whom it was written? But just. This fic was just.... so not me. In any way.
  • Easiest to write: all the Tezu/Ryo drabbles, I think, but the downside is that I don't think most of them are very satisfying in that they help me feel like I'm developing something. The one I like best out of them all is easily the one I wrote for two_if_by_sea, Cloudburst.
  • Story I'd Like to Revise: Bah. probably Everything That Falls. This is my answer to everything because I am clearly obsessed with this fic. I blame Glock and the fanart. *_*
  • What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January 2005?? *stares* House. Hikaru. Stargate. TENIPURI. Basically ALL of them except H/D. I had no idea this was coming.
  • Conclusions: I really love Tezuka/Ryoma. I am capable of being a disciplined writer. I am productive when I'm happy! And I love Prince of Tennis.
  • Goals for this year: write more TezuRyo, and get more people to write it. Finish 30_kisses. Finish all the drabbles I owe people. Write Love Under Will.
