I wrote very, very little this past year, and what I did write was mostly drabbles. But I did get in a couple of crossovers and the like, so whatever. Year in review!
the boy amongst the reeds (ncis)
do not go gentle (ncis)
/ meme responses
(in which I took first lines from melliyna's fic and wrote new drabbles)
liar, liar (life)
run (doctor who)
before the storm (csi:ny)
/ full-length fics
you are not your body; i am not your soul (ncis) (picfor1000)
(getting you to think that) all this was your idea (spooks/ncis)
lion-hearted girl (spooks)
another foolish gesture (ncis) (yuletide)
Which, in total, makes five actual fics, and 10 drabbles. Hmm.
my favourite/best story this year: I really like lion-hearted girl (Spooks) which is Ros and Zaf in post-apocalyptic London. I think the ending is a bit too vague, but I'm also mostly pleased with the atmosphere.
story most under-appreciated by the universe, in my opinion: lololol, my yuletide fic, another foolish gesture (NCIS: Los Angeles) though I am both unsurprised and not too bothered. It was a difficult fic to get written, but I'm sort of fond of it now? Hard labour and all that. It's by far the longest thing I've written in a while.
most fun story: I don't do 'fun', apparently.
story that shifted my own perceptions of the characters: another foolish gesture, because I had one idea of Macy and then ended with another.
hardest story to write: Despite what I said about my Yuletide fic, the hardest one was probably somniphobia (NCIS) because what I wanted to pinpoint was Ziva's mood, and I had to edit it a lot to get that right. I'm still not sure that I have, but at least she's now exhaling after having inhaled. Also, I am ridiculously emotionally attached to Ziva, so in a lot of ways I didn't even want to write it down.
biggest disappointment: (getting you to think that) all this was your idea (spooks/ncis) not because I dislike it - to the contrary, I want to do more with it - but because it was supposed to be a much longer, much more involved fic, and that didn't happen.
looking back, did you write more fic than you thought you would this year, less, or about what you’d predicted? Less, weirdly. I thought I'd write more often, but it didn't happen.
what pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January 2009? Macy/Callen, NCIS: Los Angeles. Didn't even know the show was going to exist. Also: I have Issues with Callen.
did you take any writing risks this year? (see above for unexpected pairings, etc.) what did you learn from them? No. None. Maybe the structure of the Yuletide fic but other than that, zilch.
do you have any fanfic or profic goals for the new year? Yeah: write something, ffs. I have my assignment for picfor1000 now so I'm looking forward to that, and I'm hoping to actually make sign-ups for femgenficathon this year. I also hope to write non-NCIS fic, and characters who are not Ziva David. So.
The end. I wrote much less this year because of work and general lack of inspiration, but I'm not disappointed? I don't know. I thought the lower count would bother me, but it doesn't. It's been a success this year just to talk about the things that I enjoy in fandom, so any fic at all becomes an accomplishment.
