I usually anticipate completing just a few stories in one year, so 2003 was on par. I am not known for being a prolific writer...
...but I am known for creating archives. *g* I love to encourage others, whether through archive work or beta reading. And on that front, I've been busy this year. Enemies and Allies is my major accomplishment on that end.
What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January 2003?
In January, 2003, B5 wasn't even a glimmer in my fannish eye. Now it is fandom number one. Funny how things work like that. *g* Teh Centauri luv blossomed around April when I discovered my old VHS copies of some B5 episodes. Then I spent the next several months searching in vain for Centauri!fic... until I discovered selenak. The rest, as the Humans say, is history. *g*
Even less expected than my entry into B5 fandom was my adoption of Londo/G'Kar as my OTP. I was honestly just kidding when I first mentioned it, but now I'm convinced. *g*
What's your favorite story of the year? Not the most popular, but the one that makes you happiest.
Missing Light was the longest and most ambitious story I completed, and from that story, "Calling" is the segment I am most proud of. It's not perfect (none of them are), but I think I captured more of Vir's personality- his humility, his tics, his dedication to Londo- in that segment than in any other.
Did you take any writing risks this year? (See above for unexpected pairings, etc.) What did you learn from them?
Picking up theatrical_muse as the year closed is the most ambitious thing I've done. I have to know Vir very well not only to answer the weekly challenges, but also to respond appropriately and in-character to the other players, including players who are outside my fandom.
Do you have any fanfic or profic goals for the New Year?
Here's my list of ten.
And to ape leyenn, I also plan to answer at least every other challenge on both thefiringline and celestial_templ (*pimppimp*), even if it means writing about characters outside of my comfort zone. Even if it means writing about... Marcus. (*gasp*)
