2007 Fic Year in Review  

Complete list, in posting order, here

Looking back, did you write more fic than you thought you would this year, less, or about what you'd predicted?
More. But I feel like I'm starting to stall.

What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January 2007?
Prison Break: Um... slash?
A few fics for The West Wing

Did you take any writing risks this year? (See above for unexpected pairings, etc.) What did you learn from them?
See above. And I mistreated the English language by translating/writing in English (God Bless beta-readers, by the way).
I can write a wider range of things than I thought.
I will never write a decent story about The West Wing (the series scares the hell out of me and my TWW fanfics are mostly crap). But I'm glad I was able to come up with something.

Do you have any fanfic or profic goals for the New Year?
Completing a few fanfics that I began to write *cough* a while ago. Wishful thinking.

Favorite story of this year:
Hémato-logie / Hemato-logy

Best story this year:
Let's say that the more polished ones are probably Au fil de l'eau / The Time They Need (Michael/Sara, Lincoln) and Clair-obscur / Twilight (Michael/Lincoln). Both of them written for fic exchanges in French. Both of them longer than my usual stuff.

Story most underappreciated by the universe:
Hémato-logie / Hemato-logy. But maybe this is just the fact that I'm really fond of this one and was hoping for more feedback :-p

Most fun story:
Fun to write or fun to read?
Fun to write, I'd say Elle sait / She Knows (Marilyn's POV on Michael)
Fun to read, I'm not sure it's mine to tell, but maybe La Manoeuvre Tancredi / The Tancredi Maneuver or Duckie (English Duckie this way).

Most sexy story:
I hate this kind of question.
In French: I'd say Faux pas : Contredanse but I think it's a rather depressing one, actually. So maybe Entre les lignes. Nothing graphic: sort of a Michael/Sara/Tattoo ménage à trois ;-)
In English: Mileage (Michael/Lincoln)

Story with single sexiest moment:
I still hate this kind of question. And I'm not very sure about the 'single' part of the question but well...
In French: Scène coupée 4 in Vous revoir : Writer's cut or some paragraphs in Clair-obscur - matter of taste.
In English: Probably some paragraphs in Twilight

"Holy crap, that's wrong, even for you" story:
In French: It's really a toss up between Petites histoires qui ne seront pas écrites (all kind of pairings, crack or more serious ones) and Elle (fluff, fluff, and a bit more fluff)
In English: Valentines (fluff, fluff, and a bit more fluff there too)

Hardest story to write:
Tacitement / Unspoken. Michael and Veronica gave me a hard time.

Easiest story to write:
In French: La Manoeuvre Tancredi / The Tancredi Maneuver or Caroline à la Maison Blanche / Caroline at the White House
In English: Let's Talk About Sex

Biggest Disappointment:
In English: Probably Reality Check. But it may be bad memories because I posted a Michael/Sara PWP a week after Sara's head had been choped off - killed the mood.
In French: Inventaire. alohomoraa did a wonderful beta job, but the fic still seems awkward and... not as I wanted it to be.

Biggest Surprise:
The Weaker Position. I wrote Michael/Mahone slash. Sort of. I still can't believe it.

Most Unintentionally Telling Story:
Caroline à la Maison Blanche / Caroline at the White House
Since it's not unintentional when you do it on purpose... I'll go with Mamans / Mommies.
