Looking back, did you write more fics than you thought you would this year, less than you thought, or about what you predicted?
I knew this year would likely not be as productive as other ones, but I think I still wrote less than I thought I would.

Where did you publish/archive your stories?
AO3 with some cross-posting to Tumblr and once or twice to LJ. I think I may have cross-posted to FFN a few times too.

What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January?
Well, I didn’t know about the Beautiful Losers II painting back then, so I couldn’t have predicted that I’d be writing for that fandom.

Did you take any writing risks this year?
No, not particularly. Though, I suppose, I did write Historical RPF which I’m always a little anxious about.

Do you have any writing goals for the new year?
To write more than I did this year.

What’s your favorite story this year? Not the most popular, but the one that makes you the happiest.
On the Relativity of Truth

Okay, NOW your most popular story?
Necessary Evil.

Story of yours most underappreciated by the universe, in your opinion?
On the Relativity of Truth.

Story that could have been better?
As usual, there were at least a couple. Most of the short prompt-fill type fics I wrote could have probably been better.

Most fun story to write?
I had fun with both New Snow and OtRoT. But…I think I’ll go with Out of Time for this one, just because it was one of those rare fics that was written on complete instinct/impulse.

Story with single sweetest moment?
Hmm. Maybe First Christmas After – that one turned out kinda really sappy.

The story that made you cry?
Of the ones I wrote? Not literally cry, but I think felt the saddest at times while writing New Snow.

Most "holy crap, that's wrong, even for you" story?
Don’t think I had one of those this year.

Sexiest story?
Ehhh, New Snow has a sex scene, but I wouldn’t call the fic overall “sexy.”

Hardest story to write
A few different ones about equally but in different ways and for different reasons.

Easiest story to write?
Out of Time, because it basically wrote itself.

Most unintentionally telling story

Story you haven't yet written, but intend to
Lol, I have a list, guys. Mostly Historical RPF but also some War and Peace ones.
