Leitmotif of the year: Gratuitous porn? No, probably not. Trying new things, I guess--new formats, new genres, new fandoms, new challenges, new media.

Overall Thoughts: My fanfiction activity comes and goes in cycles. I'm glad I tried new things this past year, and I hope I can regain the feeling that led to that sometime this year. Also, I'm still vaguely impressed by June.

My best story of this year: This is a hard one. There are a few candidates. "The Moon Is Made of Honey" is notable for doing, I think, a good job of summing up the themes of Gurren Lagann and fleshing out Nia's character arc in ways that canon glosses over. "Foxglove" is popular and fits very neatly into the Hunger Games universe. I think, though, that I'm going to go with "Alternatives to Paradise," my Keith coda.

My favorite story of this year: That would be "The Best Map Is the Land Itself." It was a kink meme fill that finally gave me the opportunity to voice my favorite crack theories about the Gundam 00 universe while writing Lockon/female-bodied!Tieria porn in the process. I'm still pleased with how well I aligned it with the themes of the canon despite the gratuitous porn.

Story of mine most underappreciated by the universe, in my opinion: "Night of the Raging Gundam." It's G Gundam fanfiction, so of course it's going to get ignored in this era of newer, sparklier Gundams. But I feel that it deserves more appreciation for being incredibly over-the-top, cheesy, and ridiculous--that is to say, perfectly in keeping with the themes and atmosphere of the series itself.

Most fun story to write: Probably "The Subtle Grace of Gravity," overall, because...well, I wrote it just because it was this ridiculously self-indulgent Lockon/Tieria thing in my head.

Story with the single sexiest moment: I'm going to be contrary here and say "Within and Without," even though I normally have trouble sexualizing the pairing that it's about. I like the imagery of Setsuna under Marina's skirts far too much.

Most "Holy crap, that's wrong, even for you" story: Pick a Keith/Matsuka story, any Keith/Matsuka story. The pairing in general is "holy crap, that's wrong, even for me."

Story that shifted my own perceptions of the characters: I guess I could say "A Matter of Perspective," simply because I hadn't given a lot of thought to Physis before. That, and I'd thought about Suena, but not about how she fit into the rest of the setting and its relationships.

Hardest story to write: Possibly "The Worth of Your Name," simply because I was already way on the outs with Gundam 00 fandom at the time, and even before then, I'd never written Billy and Graham.

Biggest Disappointment: I guess that I didn't get more of my ideas for the Hunger Games fandom written before I lost my grasp on the canon. I had a lot of them, but they sort of slipped away.

Biggest Surprise: Once again with the Princess Tutu. In this case, it's that I wrote porn for this series. Except it's not really porn, it's just a very delicately-phrased fairy-tale Mytho/Rue sex scene. Shut up.

Most Unintentionally Telling Story: Uh, probably "The Fog Clears," just because I can't exactly write full-out lesbian porn without putting something of myself into it. Awkward.

Story I haven't yet written, but intend to: Not including stuff I've already started? Raven and Judith playing with each other's hair, I guess. Maybe something about Snake and Clover and how they grew together over the years between the first and second Nonary Games.
