Year in Fic: 2009
Eight days late, but whatever, it's mostly for my benefit anyway.

Vorkosiverse, Miles Vorkosigan.My Ain True Love,
Battlestar Galactica, Roslin/Adama.
My favorite story this year (of my own):
postcards, probably. I don't write nearly enough Maggie/Malcolm. Either that or What You Don't Say.
My best story this year:
postcards. A lot of work went into that very short fic.
Story most tragically underappreciated by the universe, in my opinion:
Inspection. I mean, come on! Murphy as a stormtrooper, without crack! Actually, on second thought, that's probably why not many people love it, because it isn't crack. But Puck loved it, which is all I really needed to happen.
Most overrated story, in my opinion:
The Doctor's Angels. Started as a tossed-off remark, ended as lots and lots of people squeeing.
Most fun story:
Without Absolute Evidence. The look on Jack's face alone makes me giggle when I think about it.
Most sexy story:
Hail to the Pirate King. Which was silly!sex, which I firmly believe is the best kind of sex. *nods firmly*
Story with the single sexiest moment:
Hail to the Pirate King again, I guess.
Most unintentionally telling story:
Sibling Rivalry. Actually, most of the SJA stories have some sort of nod towards my firm fanon belief that Sarah Jane thinks Torchwood is a bunch of incompetent idiots. It may or may not be an opinion I share. *cough*
"Holy crap, that's wrong, even for me" story:
I didn't have one this year! So there. I saved it all for my profic.
Story that shifted my own perception of the characters:
Inspection. It aired a bugbear I didn't even know I had.
Hardest story to write:
Never Saw It Coming took forever, and it shouldn't have. I think it was because however much I love and adore Max (and it is a LOT), it's a bit difficult for me to get into his head. Once I got the drinking song written, however, it moved from there.
Aliens and Vampires. It's not a bad concept, just too hastily written.
Easiest story to write:
postcards. Easiest story to revise, now... no.
Story I'd like to revise (but probably won't):
Any of the fandom_stocking stories.
Story I wish I'd finished:
Kyrie, for the nth time, and Without Absolute Evidence.
Story I didn't write but swear I will, someday:
Let's see. That Story with the Placidas, and Deadly and Unpredictable.
Looking back, did you write more fic than you thought you would this year, less, or about what you'd predicted?
less. This year seems to have been profic year.
What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January 2007?
Battlestar Galactica, Codex Alera, Pirates.
Did you take any writing risks this year? What did you learn from them?
Not really. It was a low year for production, for me. I tried a bunch of new fandoms, and I tried some smut, and I tried some really short stuff, but I've done that all before. I feel unexperimental.
Do you have any fanfic or profic goals for the New Year?
FINISH KYRIE (really this time), and finish everything I've promised people. Profic is an entirely seperate subject.
