Yearly fic meme!  
Looking back, did you write more fics than you thought you would this year, less than you thought, or about what you predicted? I did okay writing fics for the year I think, until October or so, when suddenly I dried up. Getting into a new fandom about that time didn't help.

Where did you publish/archive your stories? They're on my fic lj, http://zillah-slash.livejournal.com/. I don't have much on AO3, only seven fics. Not nearly enough! Not to mention, there's glam_100 prompt fics that I haven't even put on my fic lj. I sucked this year.

What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January 2013? One Direction, even though I haven't finished a fic yet. But yeah, any pairing, One Direction.

What’s your favourite story this year? Not the most popular, but the one that makes you the happiest. It's Hard To Even Want To Try, Adam/Tommy. This one meant a lot. I tend to take my depressive tendencies out on Tommy, and I did that here. I think it turned out very sweet and a little sad. It seemed real.

Okay, NOW your most popular story. The Chef AU, which is a bunch of drabbles telling a story out of order over a period of a year or so. This broke me out of my writing slump and I wrote in it for most of the year. It's not over either, not really. The way it was structured I can always add more.

Story most underappreciated by the universe? Considering that the Adam/Tommy pairing has a much smaller audience now, I'd say they were all pretty well-received.

Story that could have been better? You and Me, Together. This was way too sappy. It was a sequel to The Road which I liked, it had a bit of an edge to it. You and Me kind of lost that. I should've written a third part and made things harder on them. Ugh. Oh well.

Sexiest story? Take A Bite (Trust Me) My first attempt at feeder porn. Part of the chef AU, of course. This actually turned out pretty hot, and I generally am annoyed by food kinks. But I guess the power dynamic here really worked for me.

Most fun story? The Chef AU, because I told a lot of little side stories in it-there's one from Neil's POV, for instance. Imagining Adam and his friends running a restaurant has a lot of potential for both drama and comedy.

Story with single sweetest moment? Probably Life Is Small. It's part of the chef AU, and I thought that Adam trying to make things right with his mom was kinda touching.

The story that made you cry? It's Hard To Even Want To Try. I did dig pretty deep into my own misery to get that one.

Hardest story to write? Every one I didn't finish-I dropped out of two big bangs in two different fandoms. I suck. I wrote a tag to my Sirens story, and it frankly wasn't that good, so that goes on here as well.

Easiest story to write? Most of the chef AU parts were simple. I based most of them off glam_100 drabbles, so I'd just see the prompt and go from there. It made my year a lot of fun.

Most "Holy crap, that's wrong, even for you" story. Um, I wrote a 100 word drabble of Tommy as a serial killer collecting tattoos, freshly carved from their previous owners. I don't even want to link to that, because what the fuck.

Story that shifted my own perceptions of the characters You know, I don't know if any did. Maybe this is why I'm in a new fandom. I might've taken my characterization of Tommy as far as it can go.

Most overdue story? I'm still writing on a TJRBB from 2012, okay?

Most unintentionally telling story I don't know, most of the ones that are telling were on purpose. Except I do tend to hurt my favorites a lot. You should see the 1D stuff I'm working on-I've got Louis in the hospital, an after-the-band-breaks-up story, and the one I started today-we'll talk about that later.

Do you have any fanfic goals for the New Year? Yes! I'm down for 250,000 words at getyourwordsout this year, and I've joined trope_bingo as well. In fact, here is my card:

reunion au: royalty / aristocracy / feudal poor communication skills virginfic sharing a bed
role reversal friends to lovers / friends with benefits trapped in a dream road trip kidfic
unrequited love / pining mind games FREE

SPACE
sex pollen time travel
au: alternate gender norms trust and vows character in distress chosen family marriage
hurt / comfort transformations coming out (of the closet) rivals to lovers matchmaker


So yes, lots of fun this year I hope!

Hey, I'm the one who wrote it! I was almost ashamed of myself though. Almost.

Also I hate fuckin' sex pollen, but they only let me veto one prompt so I chose slavefic, which I hate more.
