I have the flu. I’ve had it since last Sunday so I’m on the mend now, but still, feel weak as a kitten. Hence the radio silence. I have been reading though, even if I haven’t had the energy to comment, and seen this fanfic meme floating around. It feels like something I can manage to do.

Rules: Go to your AO3 works page, expand all the filters, and answer the following questions!

FANFIC - 110, which isn’t everything I have written, but what I still feel ok showing people.

What’re your first and second most common work ratings?
Teen And Up Audiences (44)
General Audiences (40)
Fancy that- I go around thinking I write mostly explicit stuff, but clearly that is not true!

What’s your most common archive warning?
Well, “No Archive Warnings Apply” is most common with 89 fics. But the most common “real” warning is Rape/Non-Con (15).

Least common?
Graphic Depictions Of Violence (3)

Do you consider yourself an adventurous writer?
No. I feel I have a passable grip on a few things and rarely stray.

How many stories have you made in each pairing category?
F/M (71)
Gen (29)
F/F (6)
M/M (5)
Multi (3)

Is this more accidental, or do you have preferences?
I prefer het and gen. I’ve never given it a throughout analysis, but partly, I think, because I usually identify with female characters and same-sex pairings don’t turn me on.

What are your top 4 fandoms by numbers?
Doctor Who (32)
Peter Pan - J. M. Barrie (17)
Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling (8)
Versailles (TV 2015) (8)

Are you still active in any of them, and do you tend to migrate a lot?
Peter Pan was my first fandom and all but one of those fics were written more than 10 years ago. I did visit again last year, but I don’t consider myself active in it. I never really considered myself active in Harry Potter, and the last three I have written are actually remixes. But I’m still active in Doctor Who and Versailles. I’ve always had multiple fandoms though, and about 12 of the fandoms I’ve written for only have one fic.

What are your top 4 relationship tags?
Wendy Darling/James Hook, (7) [Peter Pan]
The Master (Doctor Who)/River Song (7) [Doctor Who] Though most of the Masters and Missy, not only one of them.
Fabien Marchal/Sophie de Clermont (7) [Versailles]
Vanessa Ives/Sir Malcolm Murray (3) [Penny Dreadful]

Does this match how you feel about the characters, or are you puzzled?
Mostly unpuzzled. Wendy/Captain Hook was the first ship I wrote, so even if I haven’t written it for more than a decade, it’s still not so odd it’s there. The Master/River Song pops up from time to time- it’s an ongoing series where Rivers meets the Master on various stages of their timeline, and they are not always romantically involved. Fabien/Sophie has been my main OTP for the last few years, so not strange either. But though I vastly enjoyed Penny Dreadful and vaguely shipped Sir Malcolm/Vanessa I’ve never considered them a pairing I wrote much for. Well, 3 fics aren’t much. I’m not much of an OTPer- I ship wildly instead.

What are your top 2 most used additional tags, and your bottom 2?
Humor (13)
Dark (12)
Mind Games (5)
Unresolved Sexual Tension (5)

What would happen if you combined all 4 of these into a fic?
I think I could easily write a fic with the tags dark, mind games and UST, but I don’t think I could fit in humor there...

How many WIPs do you have currently running on AO3? Any you don’t plan on finishing?
I have 3. The End of the Story (Versailles) I’m currently working on, and it’s mostly done; I’m just stuck at the beginning of my current chapter. I plan to finish this one soon. Mary's Tale (Sleppy Hollow 1999)is complete in my mind and I really want to finish it. But I started to write this in 2006, and my English is so much better now. I feel that I need to edit the previous chapters before adding new ones. But I do want to finish it. Dudley’s Cousin (Harry Potter) I’m dithering about. I don’t really feel the love for it anymore, but it’s also one of my most popular fics (go figure), so I feel an obligation to finish it. Currently, I’m going back and forth about doing that or remove it altogether.

I also have two series who are incomplete, but A Little Less Than Kin (Doctor Who) is my Master/River stories, and the fics stand alone and it doesn’t matter much is a new fic comes, or not. They don’t have any particular order either- or rather they have two particular chronological orders depending if you read it from the master’s timeline or from River’s. So a new fic, if/when it comes, will most likely plop down somewhere in the middle for both of them.

Your Heart’s Desire is a bit trickier. It’s Dracula/The Historian fanfic, or rather fics with Dracula- they don’t really tie in with any book, and I never intended to make a series. I wrote one, and then years later got an idea for a sequel, and I realised I wanted to make it a trilogy. But the idea is taking it’s long good time to mature. And at this point, I feel I need to edit the two first stories first as well, both for language and to add a few things to tie them all better together.

I'm in larger fandoms and I don't have very many kudos. But I figured it was due to there being so much fic out there that a lot of people get lost in the shuffle.

I'd imagine that's true as well.

My fandom is also made up of folks who aren't in the mainstream of fandom for the most part -- like many of them still think Fanfiction dot net is a good idea. I think they don't get the kudos button concept.
