The Year in Fic Meme as borrowed from leda13
Favourite story of 2006: Through A Mirror Darkly. It was crazy. It wrote itself. It finished itself. 'Nuff said.

Best story I wrote, 2006: Through A Mirror Darkly.

Most Underappreciated Story I wrote in 2006: This one is unanimous. Of Like Mind: A Life Less Ordinary. Nothing like getting all of 2 reviews even after linking to all of the Dooku character threads to tell you you're doing something wrong. *g*

Most Fun Story: Through A Mirror Darkly. (noticing a pattern, here?)

Sexiest Story: Kaleidoscope. Yeah, it's a dark kind of sexy. My favourite kind.

Holy Crap, that's wrong, even for you: Er... Be Careful What You Wish For? The Dark! Obi-Wan drabbles in Cradle to Grave? The Man Who Would Be Emperor? But I'm loathe to even claim them as *wrong*. I've seen a great deal worse! *sniffs*

Story that shifted my perceptions of a character: Cradle to Grave. I realized exactly why I disliked Obi-Wan ... and then I realized that I didn't dislike him per se, but the fictional (!) character that the fan girls proclaimed him to be. The real Obi-Wan is actually not an unlikable person.

Hardest Story to Do: Easily. Cradle to Grave. See above. There's nothing that starves the muse like writing about a character you dislike. It's a good thing that didn't last for long. (The disliking, I mean.)

Biggest Disappointment: Whose disappointment? If it's mine, then I'd say Of Like Mind: A Life Less Ordinary. See Most Underappreciated. If it's my readers and co-writer, then I'd say Thwarted Fate, Volume 2. *sniff*

Most Revealing Story: Revealing how? In terms of the writer or the story? Er... Pass? I can't come up with a candidate for either.

Story I Want Remembered: That will be a tie between Through A Mirror Darkly and the Bargain Series.

Fic I Still Love Most From 2005: Thwarted Fate. Because we will finish it one day, reihla. Amen.

Oh wow. I just discovered that I can't even fill this meme out intelligently. I haven't read OR written enough in 2006. That is a major bummer and something I think I'm going to have to fix...

Yes, we will finish TF. I'm not sure *when* either, but I just get a sense that it will be done eventually. Most likely when it decides that it wants to be finished. :)

That's the spirit! *g* Let's shift the responsibility of writing the story TO the story. ;)

But I loved Of Like Mind! Just because other people can't appreciate good fic doesn't mean you did anything wrong. It just means that there are too many fan girls in the world. ;)

[Translation: You should write more of that story. ;)]

Yeah, it's a dark kind of sexy. My favourite kind.
You are one messed up kid. ;)

Holy Crap, that's wrong, even for you
I don't know if you'd have anything that would apply to that category. It seems to be your specialty. ;) Which is why we love you, of course.

The real Obi-Wan is actually not an unlikable person.
LOL. Glad you decided that. Unfortunately, it's hard to find any good fanfic that actually features the real Obi-Wan.

I will, of course, be stealing this meme. ;)

*hugs* You and charmisjess have been absolute dears encouraging me to write more. I will. I lost my muse somewhere in all the craziness of this year but I will get back to writing more. Of everything. ;)


You are one messed up kid. ;)

Have I ever pretended to be anything different. *g*

I shall hold you to that. And try to make it my mantra, as well. >_<

Amen to that, sister!

Nothing you have written has been a mistake, that I've ever seen. The only mistake may be in not PM-ing me with everything you write. :P Truly - I love your writing and there are a couple of titles I don't think I recognize here.

I mean hell - don't I stalk you enough as it is?

TAMD, K and were some of mine top 5 fave reads of 2006 - and I'm including pro work. And yeah - is there more of Bargain that I don't know about? *taps toe*

*blushes* You are such a dear, dear. :p And it's not stalking if it's welcomed. :)

I don't think so... I think you read all 3 of the series. I think the only new thing there might be the 'Of Like Mind' series. Feel free to click on anything unfamiliar. I provided links and stuff.

Just read the first post on the Of Like Mind series and am having fits of jealousy! I LOVE the nuance, the way the chracters reveal themselves without you ever telling us anything!

*pouts*

Really leia, must you be so good?

Gee, I'm not sure I wrote much in 2006 to be able to fill out this meme myself, but I'll have to do some investigating over the weekend.

I'm almost ashamed to say that I didn't read any of the titles you mentioned. Sorry.

I'm almost ashamed to say

lol! Then there's nothing for you to be apologising for. :p

Well, you've read pretty much everything of mine that I should be polite and read yours, but, alas, I just didn't find those stories interesting. That's the stories not your ability to write them, that I'm not interested in. Please do not take that in a negative way against you as a writer or person.

Alas, he twists the knife! *g*

Seriously though, you should never read a story out of politeness. You won't be doing either yourself or the writer any favours and as the saying goes, nothing stays hidden under the sun. Honesty's always the best policy.
