2005: Fic Year in Review  
Now that it's officially '06, I guess it's time to figure out what all I wrote during 2005. 'Cause I'm anal like that. So...


Chronology:

  • Lines in the Sand-- [BtVS: Spike/Xander] January 9th, 2005
    A new vice for the new year-- this was my very first Buffy fic, and I think it actually turned out fairly well, despite some canon discrepencies. This was me getting a feel for these boys, so it's not terribly obvious slash, but it was fun.
  • Direct Sunlight, Gray Days-- [Harry Potter; Lily/Narcissa] January 17th, 2005
    A short Lily/Narcissa drabble, with accompanying fanart. It's short, but I like it. I just like this pairing, too-- so wrong, and yet so right! Probably one of my very favorite femslash pairings.
  • Sunlight in My Cradle-- [BtVS: Spike/Xander] February 9th, 2005
    Sequel to 'Lines in the Sand'-- someday, I need to write more in this universe. ^^; That, and a million other things.
  • Empty of Tomorrow (Chapter 1)-- [BtVS, Spike/Xander] March 5th, 2005
    This was fan, because I rarely write fics set in a future not already defined by the fandom. This is angsty Xander, with a heavy side of anime and sci fi influence. Whee.
  • Empty of Tomorrow (Chapter 2)-- [BtVS, Spike/Xander] April 19th, 2005
    Actually, I'd really like to finish this fic, too-- for once, I know just where it's going. *sheepish*
  • Just As Far To Go Back-- [BtVS, Spike/Xander] April 24th, 2005
    And here I thought I'd mostly broken myself of the bad habbit of starting projects way too ambitious for me to ever finish. Damn it. The intro worked out well, but I think the second half of this is sub-par. *frowns*
  • A Key to Something, Somewhere-- [Star Wars, Padme/Vader] May 24th, 2005
    After seeing Revenge of the Sith, I really needed to write something where Padme lived. Unfortunately, with Vader around, it could only have been twisted and scary. Oppsie. ^^
  • Each Shard of the Mirror I: I Am Become Death-- [Star Wars, Padme/Anakin] June 5th, 2005
    First in a series based on the theme 'Five Things That Never Happened to Padme Naberrie. Because Vader did attend that funeral, damnit.
  • Playing for Marbles-- [The 4400; gen, Maia and Diana] July 15th, 2005
    I sat down and forced myself to write this one, because I hadn't written anything in over a month, and I was starting to get antsy. ^^ It turned out okay, considering. Maia is one of my favorite characters from this series. Who doesn't love clairvoyant little girls?
  • Each Time You Tell The Story-- [BtVS, Spike/Xander] August 11th, 2005
    Spander, told from Dru's POV. Dru is way too much fun to write-- I'm really very pleased with this one. *hugs it*
  • All Your Dreams Dismantled-- [Battlestar, Boomer/Tyrol] August 13th, 2005
    OMG, it's het, run away...!! ^_~ I have a huge weakness for the warped angst of this pairing, I just can't help it. I never thought I'd write BSG fic, and look what happened!
  • Hold Fast-- [Battlestar, Boomer/Tyrol] August 29th, 2005
    Sequel to 'All Your Dreams...' Tyrol doesn't get enough love.
  • Each Shard of the Mirror II: A Final, Distant Shore-- [Star Wars, Padme/Anakin] September 14th, 2005
    I like writing TPM-era Padme/Ani friendship. The cuteness is somehow balanced by the sheer despair to come. X_x;;
  • Every Girl Who Shares My Face-- [Battlestar, Boomer/Tyrol]
    Creepy het pairing? Check. Amazing, tortured female character? Check. Japanese mythology? ... check. X_x;;
  • Do Not Wish To Be Rare Like Jade-- [Harry potter; Lily/Narcissa] November 16th, 2005
    This is the best femslash I've written in a long time.
  • Objects in Motion-- [Star Wars; Padme/Anakin] December 29th, 2005
    Written for Leia_N-- this was short, and actually written on command, but it turned out alright. Not great, but okay. Huh.
  • Forthcoming public posts: "Mechanic's Waltz" (Firefly, Kaylee/Inara) and "True Navigation" (Firefly, Gen; Simon and River)


Fandom Breakdown:
Battlestar Galactica: 3
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: 6
Firefly: 2
Harry Potter: 2
The 4400: 1
Star Wars: 4
TOTAL: 18

Unfortunately, I didn't finish any of my in-progress works this year, but other than that...

*smiles* You know, I owe you guys all so much, for all the feedback, support and help. My writing wouldn't have much of a purpose without you. *hugs tight* Particular thanks go to Leia_N, Leigh, and Amber, for betaing, bantering, and other assorted wonderfulness. ^__^

And, for some reason, I think there might be some Clex fic in my future... ^^;;;

I've never read any of your BG fanfic, so SQUEE!

*grins* I hope it doesn't disappoint, and that you enjoy it. ^__^

I have been so bad about feedbacking your fics in 2005. I resolve that in 2006, I will be better. I've loved everything I've read of yours this past year--and whoa, you've been productive!
Meredith Bronwen Mallory: notafraidgarnettrees on January 2nd, 2006 04:53 am (UTC)
Don't worry about it, dearest. I've missed feedbacking some of your fics, as well. Besides, some of our interests have taken divergent turns, though you know I'll always read anything you write. Still, we shall forever be bound by MASH, Firefly, BoB, and other random obsessions. *grins* You are my favorite writer ever, you know that? *hugs*
