I wrote only three stories in 2016, I'm afraid:

[community profile] myoldfandom 2016 Exchange: "The Wand of Siora the Wise"
beta by Skieswideopen; for DesertVixen
(Dungeons & Dragons (1983-85); ~9K words; G; Sheila, Eric, Hank, Bobby, Diana, Presto, etc.)

   This was my first writing in this lifelong-loved fandom. I tried so hard to fulfill the prompt and be episode-like that I may have overdone it. Yet I learned about the characters as you do only when you're writing them, and found much delight in them and their universe! I want to write them again, and read them more.

[community profile] fkficfest 2016 Exchange: "The Time Will Come"
beta by Batdina; for Merfilly
(Forever Knight; ~3K words; G; Janette, Alma, Aristotle, the Enforcers)

   Late summer and all fall are lost to me in a haze of overwork. I don't recall just how this concept found me, only that it felt important to stake FK's claim on an open future. I learned more about Canadian security than the story needed, not to mention Syrian brutality. But the story, I think, I hope, is finally full of hope and determination — first-season-style, today.

[livejournal.com profile] hlh_shortcuts 2016 Exchange: "Ships in the Night"
betas by Skieswideopen, Celli & Sholio; sounding-board-ing by ArgentumLS & Skieswideopen; for Idontlikegravy
(Highlander; ~1K words; G; Richie, Michelle, Angie)

   I almost didn't sign up for this fest. And then I almost dropped out. HLdom often seems to me as monolithic as FKdom is diverse; I worried and fussed. The kind people listed above helped me through. I do love HL dearly, for all that I'm lost in HLdom. I hope that I did right by it and by the other players, and maybe they won't mind me playing again someday.

brightknightie: Three seasons of Forever Knight (Cast)

In 2011, I finalized 10 fanfiction pieces (~36K words).  I also have 2 lingering "leftover" stories (~2K words), which I posted as commentfic for Fandom Stocking 2010/11, but still have not yet polished for the list or archived; they're not abandoned, just... not yet satisfying.  8 of the 10 are Forever Knight, 1 Highlander, and 1 Young Blades.  9 (prose) were written for fests, and 1 (poem) just because.  They're all pretty much gen, as I measure it, though there are splashes of canon romance.

I also archived all my fanfiction on the AO3 this year, re-editing most pieces as I went. A big job! I still have to transfer the changes back into the originals on my fansite.

My thanks to my 2011 beta-readers! ♥ Batdina, Skieswideopen, LastScorpion, Amilyn, Ithildyn, Natmerc, Sholio and Celli. Plus Wiliqueen and Leela for brainstorming.

In 2010, I posted six fanfiction stories (~23,500 words).  Three were Forever Knight, two Highlander, and one Harry Potter.  Three were written for ficathon prompts, two as gifts, and one just because.  They're all gen, in the old-fashioned way I think, but in today's terms, I suppose one is het, one is "pre-slash," and one has het and femmeslash.

This year, I posted seven total fanfiction stories (~40,200 words).  One was in Highlander, three in Forever Knight, and three in the Buffyverse.  Six were for ficathon prompts, and one was just because.  They're all gen, in the old-fashioned way I usually think about classifications, but in more contemporary terms, I suppose three are gen, three are het, and one is het and femmeslash.

A very happy New Year to everyone!  To paraphrase Bill Watterson, I am so glad and grateful to have a big blank new sheet of paper before me -- and all of us.  May everything in the world go better from here on out.

It doesn't look like much next to the breathtaking productivity of some fanfiction authors who have shared this meme, but my 2008 was unprecedently prolific.  This was also the year I discovered ficathons.  (I suspect a connection, oh yes.   How did Bill Watterson have Calvin and Hobbes put it?  "I work best under pressure." / "You work only under pressure.")

2008 is the last year for which [livejournal.com profile] tv_elf will appear in beta credits.  I miss her.  I am grateful to her and [livejournal.com profile] much_madness, [livejournal.com profile] batdina, [livejournal.com profile] leela_cat, [livejournal.com profile] wiliqueen, [livejournal.com profile] abby82, and a few people from the list, who generously gave their time and thought to make my stories worth reading -- and, in many cases, to midwife them into existence in the first place by asking questions and waiting out the answers.

And I am so grateful to everyone who read the stories -- especially those who told me they did. :-)
