Gakked from [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook It’s of course gloriously self-centered to think anyone cares enough about my writing to be actually curious about it, but sometimes it has happened, and it’s always fun to talk about oneself.

I know I’ve already done a fanfic meme, but I think they are fun to do, for my sake, even if no one else is interested. :)

Looking back, did you write more fics than you thought you would this year, fewer than you thought, or about what you predicted?
Less. But if you compare with the several year long writing lull I had before late 2014, I still wrote a lot. :)

What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January 2016?
Quite a few new fandom. Versailles, pairing Fabien/Claudine and Fabien/Sophie. Agent Carter. pairing Peggy/Jarvis/Ana. Once Upon A Time in Wonderland, pairing Ana/Knave of Hearts and Ana/Jafar. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, pairing Arabella/Flora and Arabella/Childermass. And though I can’t tell you which fandoms yet, my treats for Yuletide are in new fandoms too. In older fandoms I have paired Fifth Doctor/Clara (Doctor Who) and Evy/Rick and Evy/Ardeth Bay (The Mummy).

I surprised myself with writing several love stories which, even if angsty, ultimately ended on a happy note.

What's your favourite story this year? Not the most popular, but the one that makes you the happiest?
Probably my Agent Carter-fic, Requesting Comfort. And a short gen-fic for Doctor Who: Merry Christmas Master.

Okay, NOW your most popular story.
By kudos; Darkness and Light (Versailles.
By bookmarks; Ghosts (The Mummy.

Story most under appreciated by the universe?
Professor Keller (Doctor Who). I get why it isn't popular, it’s darkfic with the dreaded thing called original character. So it has few readers, but the little feedback I have got has been very positive and I think it’s a good story. Provided you like angst and is prepared to believe an OC isn’t automatically a Mary Sue. :)

Story that could have been better?
All of them? I can always see the flaws in my fics after a while. But The Substitute Teacher (Doctor Who) was written for a gift exchange and I ran out of time. It’s not a bad story, but in the middle it could have benefitted to have a paragraph or two to tie it together better.

Sexiest story?
I’ve written a lot less smut this year, but Show Me (Versailles.

Most fun story?
Merry Christmas Master.

Story with single sweetest moment?
Requesting Comfort

Hardest story to write?
Professor Keller

Easiest story to write?
Ghosts

Total words this year: 52476

L - Say something genuinely nice about a character who isn’t one of your faves. (Characters you’re neutral about are fair game, as are characters you merely dislike.

Book meme

scripsi: (Default)
This is cropping up all over my f-list:

Give me a number, or give me a bunch of numbers, and I'll make a post answering the corresponding question(s). I may not have answers for every question (and some of them you probably already know the answer to), but I will do my best.

1. What’s the last book you read? What did you think of it?
2. What’s the worst book you’ve ever read, and why?
3. A book you found overhyped, and why
4. Ereaders versus physical books is such a false dichotomy. Instead, tell me what other formats (phone apps, tumblr fiction, twitter haikus) you read in
5. Which genre(s) don’t you read? Why not?
6. If you read in more than one language, is there a difference between the experience of reading in your native language(s) and reading in other languages?
7. If you’re not a native English speaker, how much do you read in your native language versus how much you read in English? How do you feel about that? // If you’re a native English speaker, go find a book in your second/third/etc language, or in translation, to add to your to-read list
8. The book you read when you’re stuck in bed sick
9. Fiction or non-fiction or both? In what ratio? Where do you draw the line between the two?
10. The book(s) you bought because the cover was pretty, and whether it was worth it
11. The worst book hangover you’ve ever had
12. Do you have to finish one book before you start the next one, or do you read multiple books at the same time?
13. The fictional character you want to believe you resemble and the fictional character you actually resemble
14. The book that, in hindsight, really should have clued you in to the fact that you’re _________ (queer/in love/doomed to be an academic/etc)
15. The book that you reread over and over again and get new things from every time
16. The book that you don’t dare reread for fear it won’t be the same any more
17. Preferred bookshelf organisation scheme
18. Do you theme your monthly/yearly/etc reading (eg Year of Reading Women)?
19. That book with a twist that felt like a blow to the chest. Tell me about it. (But warn for spoilers if necessary!)
20. The coolest bookshop you’ve ever been to
21. The book you gave up on, and the reasons why
22. The book you finished even though you hated it, and the reasons why
23. The book you expected to hate, didn’t, and then got angry about not hating
24. The book that you got into because of the movie/TV series/etc, and the relative merits of each version
25. The only book care question that actually means anything: do you write in your books? If so, in pen or in pencil?
26. Do you read reviews of books? Before or after you read the books themselves? Why? Why not?
27. The book you’re embarrassed to admit you’ve read
28. The one where the fanfic was better than the original (and the relevant AO3 links, pls)
29. Your vacation reading habits
30. The book you read the blurb of, constructed a version of in your mind, and were promptly disappointed by once you finally got around to actually reading it

It’s something gloriously self-absorbed to talk about one’s own writing, but it’s also fun, so I gakked this from [livejournal.com profile] dreamsofspike

Look at my AO3 Works List and ask me up to three questions about any fic:

1: What inspired you to write the fic this way?

2: What scene did you first put down?

3: What's your favorite line of narration?

4: What's your favorite line of dialogue?

5: What part was hardest to write?

6: What makes this fic special or different from all your other fics?

7: Where did the title come from?

8: Did any real people or events inspire any part of it?

9: Were there any alternate versions of this fic?

10: Why did you choose this pairing for this particular story?

11: What do you like best about this fic?

12: What do you like least about this fic?

13: What music did you listen to, if any, to get in the mood for writing this story? Or if you didn't listen to anything, what do you think readers should listen to to accompany us while reading?

14 :Is there anything you wanted readers to learn from reading this fic?

15: What did you learn from writing this fic?

After all the excitement yesterday I mainly good around. I took the dogs for a long walk before it got too hot and now we are all (but two of the cats) relaxing on the patio. I have done some drawing and next I plan to finish a biography over the Princesses of Vasa, the daughters of Gustav I Vasa during the 16th century.

I’ll try to answer comments on my own LJ, but in general, commenting will be bad from me this week. However, i couldn’t resist this AO3-meme I see many of you are doing. I’m a sucker for fanfic memes.

In honour of All Hallow's Eve, I'm inviting trick-or-treaters to my 'door.' Comment "trick-or-treat" to this post and...well, you know the drill. Treats can be anything that strikes my fancy (pics of fave actors or pairings, one sentence fics, graphics, a few words why I'm glad to have you on my flist, etc. etc)

The more "houses" to visit the more fun it'll be, so go ahead, open your journal and help spread the fun!
