Yuletide fic! I wrote three things!

I'd written three stories once before, when I wrote two stories for my recipient and then a treat for Elyn in one of those fandoms, but that was waaaaay back in 2009.

Breakfast Club, Breakfast Club, Vikings )



I threw a lot of words at a lot of things that I didn't post this year - a story or two for SS*BB; the aforementioned abandoned Yuletide fic attempts; an American Idiot fork-in-the-road AU that I don't think there's anyone left in the fandom to read; a few Arthur/Eames story ideas. I'm not sure that it was more unpublished words than any other year, but it was spread across fewer files. I didn't have a fandom that lead to thirty different plot bunnies.

AO3 word count for the year: 10244

Two (of three) ficlets for AELDWS, an attempt at stop-drop-howl that stopped and dropped before the porn, and three yuletide fics. Not my lowest count year - that was 2011, which was a giant pile of work-related stress.

I now have 74 works on AO3, and I think #75 is going to be the scenes from the proto-Smokin' Aces fic that I am still so excited that someone else wrote. *\o/* [personal profile] ponderosa *\o/*

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator.

In your own space, promote three communities, challenges, blogs, pages, Twitters, Tumblrs or platforms and explain why you love them. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

As a multi-fannish person, I don't usually end up in the corners of fandom where the deep cuts of introspection and analysis happen, but I do love a newsletter, and I do love a rec community, and am so grateful for the people who have their fingers on the pulses of their respective fandoms.

I sometimes forget that [community profile] bestthingever exists, if I'm honest :( There's enough [community profile] fancake traffic on my reading page that I have been known to mistake the less-frequent [community profile] bestthingever entries for fancake ones. Whoops. But it's great!


[community profile] metanews (mirrored at [livejournal.com profile] metanewsfandom)

I don't remember if I ever knew the whole story about what happened with metafandom, mostly because I was a sporadic reader at best, but I was excited to see metanews appear. (also [community profile] as_others_see_us, particularly when there's a Big Story About Fanfic)

This one isn't strictly fannish, but there's a lot of fannish folk there - [livejournal.com profile] ushobwri

I don't spend a lot of time on twitter, but [twitter.com profile] TagsOfAO3 is a recent discovery, and it's pretty great if you like a periodic reminder of the awesome ridiculousness of fandom (although not, obviously, if tumblr-style tags on AO3 are the bane of your existence. I've found my peace with it :)

I wish I could write shorter things. I would write more of them! I love longfic, and occasionally have fic ideas that can only be served by longfic, but I really love scenes - slice of life, five things, all that stuff, and some of what I'm happiest with of what I've written are things that feel unresolved. Hopeful, almost always, but open-ended.
