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.
