This year, I wrote in a few new fandoms, so I'm proud of that. I also branched out and wrote a few things that were different for me, like my f/f elephant & badger stories. And my 100 drabbles project was such great fun! I know it looks like I didn't get anything written in October and November. But I actually finished 5 stories and a handful of drabbles during those months, not including giftfics. I posted two of the stories in early December, one is for a special project for later in 2017, and the others are two Strokes stories I haven't posted yet.

Some of my favorite pieces of 2016 include:
  • Isolation- I really fell in love with my poly dwarves
  • Blowing Things Up (Or Not)- I was really pleased with how this turned out. Creating this dynamic among John, Sherlock, and Greg came out exactly the way I'd hoped. I've got half a sequel to this story done as well right now.
  • Their Give and Take- The soft vanilla BDSM was such a joy to play with. I fell in love with these guys almost instantly
  • Practice Lessons Part 1 & Part 2- Once in a while I write a story that I feel like I'm living in rather than just writing. I was right there inside this one while creating it. It was consuming and obsessive and really moved me. I couldn't stop writing it, even when it was over! And I also had the pleasure of spending a vacation day at home with my kitty curled up on my lap while writing the majority of this story, just a few days before she died. So it's going to have a special place in my heart regardless. But even without that, this turned out to be a special story for me.
I accomplished a few of the goals I set myself. I definitely wrote more Strokes fics (including one it seems I never posted). And I enjoyed my annual comment fic meme and all three NaNos! I'm not going to set myself any writing goals for 2017, because I can tell already this is going to be a tough year. I will write what I can. That's this year's goal!

Just in case LJ goes crazy when it moves more of its servers/operating to Russia or starts deleting journals with slash content on them, I've got mirrors on IJ and DW. I'll be crossposting all posts for this journal to DW from now on as well.
