seraphcelene: (it mocks me)
Last year was ... it was ... and now it's finished. I didn't really do all that much writing. Picked at things and started things, but me with the finishing of things just didn't seem to happen. I don't feel like I have a muse anymore. I suppose that Agatha really took that death scene back in Crave pretty hard. But, here is what I did accomplish on the fic front, sad though it may be.

like never, and like always (BtVS/Angel)
The Law of Equivalent Exchange (BtVS)
as soon as forever is through (Boys Over Flowers)
Beloved (Star Trek: AOS)

My favorite story this year (my own): as soon as forever is through was hard to write because it was hard to hear. The dissonance between reading subtitles and listening to the cadences of the Korean language complicated my writing process. However, overall, it is the thing that I am most proud of this year. I love the language, and despite the complications, the rhythm, and the points that I tried to make about the characters and how they break.

My best story this year: as soon as forever is through

My favorite line of this year: TIE!!!!!
"Buffy thinks of Oz and how sometimes you have to leave to save your own life." - like never and like always

"Everything is the beginning of something until it's the end and there is Dawn on the floor of the bathroom dipping fingers into a puddle the impossibly dark red of black currant." - The Law of Equivalent Exchange

Story most under-appreciated by the universe, in my opinion: I didn't write enough to judge well. But, maybe, as soon as forever is through.

Most fun story: Yeah, not so much with the fun stories.

Sexiest story: and a no, again.

Story with single sexiest moment: Nope

"Holy crap, that's wrong, even for you" story: No. Everything is pretty much in character, but I suppose the fact that I killed everyone off in The Law of Equivalent Exchange could count for something.

Fic that shifted my perceptions of the characters: n/a

Biggest disappointment: The Law of Equivalent Exchange. I really intended this to be a more traditional narrative, but it just kinda didn't work out that way.

Hardest story to write: like never and like always was from a gifted prompt and I struggled with it. I felt like I should have been able to just write it and get it, but the execution was a major challenge. Moving the story from my head to paper, while keeping in mind the prompt was just more difficult then I think it should have been.

Easiest story to write: The Law of Equivalent Exchange wasn't what I really wanted it to be, but the images made it to paper with astonishing ease. Maybe because I did break it up and didn't try to force a frame on it that was inorganic to the story. I dunno know.

Most unintentionally telling story: n/a

What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January 2010: as soon as forever is through is based on a kdrama. I NEVER thought that would happen.

Did you take any writing risks this year? What did you learn from them?: n/a
