2008 Fanfic Year in Review  
Q & A

Looking back, did you write more fic than you thought you would this year, less, or about what you'd predicted?
More but I'm starting to stall. I already said that last year except this time around, it's true ;) A fair amount of stories are either translations of older fics or stories I wrote a while ago and posted recently.

What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January 2008?
Gretchen/Sofia and Sara/Jane. Femslash is not really my thing.
Lincoln/Sucre. Seriously... Lincoln/Sucre? Not once but twice. One is a crackfic, but the other one is serious.
Lincoln/Veronica/Michael and Michael/Sara/Lincoln (English version not posted yet)
And in French, a Doctor Who drabble. I used to watch and enjoy it but it's really not the kind of show I write fics for.

Did you take any writing risks this year? (See above for unexpected pairings, etc.) What did you learn from them?
Lincoln/Sucre was... a challenge, but I've been writing Michael/Lincoln for a while and I don't think that the unexpected pairings listed above are that "risky" in comparison. Okay, maybe the threesome ones ;-)

Do you have any fanfic or profic goals for the New Year?
No. Nothing major anyway.

Favorite story of this year:
I'm not sure, nothing really stands out. Proabably one of the Michael and Lincoln (gen or slash) fics.

Best story this year:
Same here. Maybe Five Vocations (Michael & Lincoln gen) or Between the Mirrors (slash).

Story most underappreciated by the universe:
Dysfunctional Harmony (Lincoln/Veronica/Michael) or Kaleidoscope (Michael/Lincoln).

Most fun story:
Small Talk Between Heroines (Prison Break, The Avengers, The Pretender, The West Wing, Sex & the City - and yes, it's a crackfic). I don't know if it's fun to read, but it was fun to write.

Most sexy story:
Depending on your pairing of choice, It's Those Hands (Michael/Lincoln) or Boots (Michael/Sara)

Story with single sexiest moment:
I wrote mostly either gen or smut last year so I'm not sure about the "single" part ;) Let's say Between the Lines (Michael/Sara) or in a different genre Atypical Days (Sara/Jane).

"Holy crap, that's wrong, even for you" story:
Bliss (Michael/Sara, Lincoln). Beware of the fluff!

Hardest story to write:
Kaleidoscope (Michael/Lincoln).
In French only, Framboises amères (Michael/Sara/Lincoln).

Easiest story to write:
Driving Lessons (Michael and Lincoln gen)

Biggest Disappointment:
I'm mostly disappointed that I haven't writen more gen stories.

Biggest Surprise:
Cause and Effect (Lincoln/Sucre) - not to mention a few people actually reading it.

Most Unintentionally Telling Story:
I don't have the slighest idea.
