londovir- by iamsab

That fanfiction meme:

Gakked from astrogirl2, with two additional questions added.

Primary strength: Character study.

Primary weakness I hope to work on in the coming year: Plot.

Number of stories this year: Besides the thousands of words poured into theatrical_muse, which I do believe count in their way, I've written nine stand-alone short stories, most of them less than 1000 words.

Babylon 5

Meetings in the Green
Memory
Fathers and Sons
After Horrors Seen
Vigil
While Bathing (Sexual Content)
Enthusiasms

Farscape

Shreds of Heaven
And Still You Live (Miniseries Spoilers)

My favorite story this year (of my own): Is actually not a story, but an in-character discussion generated by Galen (and Morden) on theatrical_muse: No Living Enemies. This exchange is a textbook example of what adopting Vir as my muse on T_M has allowed me to do: To play Vir as smart and as passionate and as insightful as I know he is. Of course, for this, credit also belongs to the writers behind Galen and Morden for giving as good as they got.

My best story this year: Is difficult to judge. Shreds of Heaven is by far the story that received the most positive feedback, including an awards nomination. But again, I do wonder whether my best work this year is not hidden on vir_cotto_tm or timov_of_algul somewhere. T_M definitely plays to my strengths.

Story most underappreciated by the universe, in my opinion: And Still You Live did not receive very much feedback, but I don't think that's because of a lack of appreciation.

Most fun story: Back to T_M we go, this time for Vir's Adventures in Wonderland, which was fun in its purest form. And for that, I must give credit to janewt. *g*

Most sexy story: I didn't write any sex save a brief foray into Virsturbation, While Bathing, which received an astonishingly positive response, and a Vir/Senna mini-fic for T_M, Touch.

Story with single sexiest moment: See above.

Story with single sweetest moment: There are sweet moments all over vir_cotto_tm, but of the official stories, I would say my sweetest was Enthusiasms.

Most unintentionally *telling* story: I don't know. What do you think? *g*

"Holy crap, that's *wrong*, even for you" story: Those would be the stories I haven't written, but merely joked about. *g*

Hardest story to write: Vigil, with its unfamiliar POV and a pairing that hasn't quite convinced me yet.

This year's theme and the story that demonstrates it most: That would have to be divided by fandom, I think. For FS, my focus was on the tragedy of Stark- how he has been brutalized and how he has survived. For B5? Intimacy- or the lack thereof. Trust- or the violation of it. Separation- by death, by betrayal, or by reassignment. In a word: relationships, with Londo&Vir the dominant choice.

Comments

Vir's Adventures in Wonderland was just about the most fun I've had. You were really keeping me on my toes--it was wonderful!
I absolutely adore that discussion as well, but then, I'm prejudiced.*g*

So, when are you going to update E&A with all those pearls, hm?
This week, before starting on mynewjobomg! *g*

Hehe.

Thanks for all the fanfiction links. Now I don't feel too guilty about only buying one fictional book at the bookstore today. :)

Re: Hehe.

Fah! I would say only thirty percent of my usual real-life reading material is fictional- imagination I excercise here, in fandom. *g* And you, I must say, have one of the best reading lists ever. It makes me feel like a wholly intellectually inadequate rube. ;)

Re: Hehe.

But I read childish things (Harry Potter!), too, so it all balances out in the end. :)

I took photographs of my bedroom today and I couldn't help but take photographs of my bookshelf, haha. You'll see later (if I can figure out how to post them as thumbnails, haha)!

Re: Hehe.

I wouldn't dare take pictures of my bedroom, as it's filled to the brim with messy clutter, including one half of my full-sized bed, which is filled with books. *g*

Childish things: Yes, I'm an HP fan as well, though not really "in the fandom" in the true sense. I also recently bought the first four books in the A Series of Unfortunate Events</a> series- conundrum turned me on to that one. *g* Oh yes, I definitely approve of getting in touch with your inner child. *g*

Re: Hehe.

Ah, damn, frelled up my tags. And it was [Bad username: _conundrum_&quot;], even, who introduced me to Lemony Snicket. *g* Curses on typing errors!

Re: Hehe.

_conundrum_, even. Argh!
Love, love, LOVE the "No Living Enemies" discussion! Vir is a lot smarter and braver than most people give him credit for. Thanks for the link. :)

*hugs Vir*
Thank you! And you're welcome! And yes, he is, damn it!

*hugs Vir*
