Total number of fics: 44

Total wordcount: 341394 (Gotta say this is MUCH easier now we have AO3 stats! :D)

Total number of fandoms: 6

My favorite story of mine this year: Hmmm. That's always a terribly tough question. I think it's a toss-up between I've got you under my skin and Don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet. I'm the proudest of how those two turned out.

Story most underappreciated by the universe, in my opinion: Hmmm. Possibly Here comes your man? Could be I posted it right before Marvel Big Bang went live, and it kind of got lost in the middle of all those awesome long stories? IDK.

Most fun story: Again, it's a toss-up between From Russia With Love and (I can say this now, because reveals are imminent) the Yuletide treat I wrote, Have a Very Merry 00 Christmas. That last one was a delight to brainstorm and write, and the first one, with Bond meeting Bucky -- no comment necessary. :D

Most sexy story: Well. According to the comments I got for them, it's a toss-up between So turn around and I'll pick up the slack and It's in the water, baby. Although In the backseat put up a very good fight, too! :)

Story with single sweetest moment: Personally, I adore the moment in My heart was wrapped up in clover where Clint turns up to make things right. :')

Most unintentionally *telling* story: Oh, god. I think it really is Don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet. So much of myself went into writing this story, I was incredibly nervous posting it. :) Runner-ups have to be And I'll cross oceans like never before and I swear I'll drive all night just to buy you some shoes.

Fic that shifted my own perceptions of the characters: Science and Progress (do not speak as loud as my heart), I think. That's the story that made me stop and think and have a revelation about Steve that's now firmly into head canon territory. :) Also, I will ask you to open my door from your side, which I wrote with [livejournal.com profile] delicatale, for a story that made me look at all the characters in just a slightly different way. I still want to write the follow-up to that so badly.

Biggest disappointment: Hmmm. I don't think I had one? I was disappointed that I've got you under my skin didn't do better? I expected it to do better. Maybe I'm just too involved in that story to see it objectively? IDK.

Biggest surprise: I think it was how extremely very well And I'll cross oceans like never before did? I did not expect that at all! :D 911 Kudos, over 25,000 hits. I'm just ajhkfhdsf over it! :D I am also extremely gratified by just how amazingly well Don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet is doing, since like I mentioned before, it was maybe the most personal story I've yet to write in that fandom. :) Just thrilled about it! <3

Hardest story to write: I think that was I've got you under my skin, which is why I wish it had done better. It took me weeks to get going, I kept getting stuck, I think I re-wrote the plot outline about six times, drew plot maps. Many of you will remember me tearing my hair out over it. And then I ended up writing it in a single week when I unblocked myself (largely thanks to bloody Bucky Barnes, who ended up taking over. :DDD).

Easiest story to write: Quite possibly it was Only his ring finger knows? It took me maybe 45 minutes to write, and it's ended up one of my most popular stories this year. :)

This year's theme and the story that demonstrates it most: Oooh, that's a tough one! Well, I have to say, this year was an Avengers (and Clint/Coulson) year through and through. So I'll have to choose a Clint/Coulson story -- and I can't think of anything better than Conditional Value At Risk. It illustrates everything I adore about this fandom: boys in love, pining, how well they fit together, as well as showcasing my favourite things: alternate universes, coffee shop AUs, Clint and Phil being themselves, a sweet kind of rightness. :)


All in all, it's been a great year to write! :D Didn't write as much as 2011 (which was truly an INSANELY good writing year), but I wrote more complex, more thought-out stories? I'm so happy with how my writing is progressing. And I'm so blessed that my stories have brought me so many amazingly wonderful people for friends! <3 I love you guys so much. :')

I'd be really curious to see which of my stories people thought would fit these categories, if not the ones I've listed? Do you agree/disagree with me? Please do tell me! <3
