Go to AO3 and list your top ten fics in terms of hit count (via [ profile] apiphile)

  1. ancient lying underneath [the weak as iron remix] - BBC's Sherlock. It's not tagged with any major pairings, but it's about the fan favorites, for a pretty popular fandom, and it's a fest fic that got recced around a bit, so I guess that explains it. (I'm also kind of proud of it, though I'm not sure it's justified.)
  2. The View from Up Here - X-Men: First Class. Tagged with the fandom's favorite pairing, written and posted early in the fic explosion, and got recced on Tumblr by [ profile] gyzym because it arose out of a conversation with her; she is the BNF in this fandom as far as I can tell. So that explains it. It's also ridiculous self-indulgent id-fic written on an evening when I was slightly loopy, and doesn't really deserve the attention.
  3. Five Sharp Points [The Healing Remix] - Firefly. Another fest fic, for the same fest, and I think it might have gotten recced once too? Interestingly, this has less than half the hits of the first two; I'm not sure what's up with that. It's decent in my opinion, but not super.
  4. Never Make Me Wonder - Homestuck. I am really, really surprised to see this on the list, to be honest; no fests, no BNFs, and it's one of my most recent fics, so it's had less time to attract hits. Evidently it's pretty good? It's centered on a fairly divisive character, but I think she has a lot of stans as well as the opposite.
  5. You've Seen How I Live - Inception. Ahh, both a fest fic (for an LJ-based fest, however, unlike Remix_Redux) and the fandom's darlings, but it's genderswap, and I guess there's less of an audience for femmeslash epics. Still, it's pretty darn high on the list. This fic could probably be a lot better, but I am still quite happy with it overall, not least because it was sort of a milestone for me.
  6. What Might Be Left to Say In Time Come After Death - Homestuck. I guess this fandom really does live on the AO3 to an extent. To be honest, I really like this one; it's definitely gratifying that it's gotten some attention. Interestingly, I think it's got a higher kudos count than anything but Never Make Me Wonder; evidently I write better Homestuck fic than anything else. (How much that's saying is up to the reader.)
  7. War Without End - X-Men: First Class. Also posted during the fandom's height (which may still be going on? I don't know, I found I didn't have enough enthusiasm for the source to grapple with its issues, and then got drawn into Homestuck). It's lady-centric and short; also, not my best.
  8. With Thanks to Apollo - Inception. This one is ALL LADIES, and has also been remixed twice, which probably got it quite a bit of attention. It's not a masterpiece, but I think I pretty much achieved what I was trying to achieve, and it was an interesting experiment in an outsider POV.
  9. Neurons of Murderous Dancers - Inception & Black Swan. I am really, really pretty damn proud of this fic, and Black Swan is a pretty small fandom, which drew it some positive atteention, I think, and I guess the premise interests people? It was originally posted over here, and the amount of attention on this end redefines 'flattering.'
  10. Drift - Narnia (bookverse). I... have no idea what this one is doing on the list. I thought it wasn't a very big fandom, and it's a really short fic. I guess the Susan Problem is a popular subject?

(The comments may or may not turn into a lot of Homestuck anyway. I promise not to answer with that for anyone not in that fandom, though.)

Make up a title for a story I didn't write, and I will respond with details of those non-written stories. You may, if you like, include details, such as pairings or fandom or whatnot.

Meme swiped from [ profile] viorica8957 :

+ Pick one [or more!] of my icons.
+ I will (try my best to) write you at least one sentence of something vaguely resembling fiction based on said icon.
This would, I think, work better if I had more icons. If we share a fandom for which you have icons, use said icon and I might write something based on that as well?

Second: there was a meme on Tumblr wherein one's friends proposed a hypothetical cast and then you created a false movie poster and synopsis with that cast and inspired by a randomly selected ("randomly") song. I ended up making three. Two had the casts suggested by [ profile] 1st_eggokage; the first was inspired by "Turning" from Les Miserables (sort of), the second by "In My Veins" by Andrew Belle. The third synopsis was all me, inspired by "St. Stephen's Cross" by Vienna Teng.

I had a lot of fun with this. )

And finally, one Merlin wallpaper. )

(The title line is a lie; I will probably do this again eventually. I'll try not to do it too much, though.)

Comment with any ship (romantic or platonic or maybe even non-existent!) from a fandom that you know I have some knowledge about, and I will rant about aforementioned ship. This may be incoherent gushing or exclamations of disgust, depending on your ship of choice.

I will try to keep the disgust to a minimum.

WIP meme!

Because everyone else, apparently, is doing that meme wherein you post the titles of all your works in progress (the files, not the fics). Most of these are not actually in progress at all anymore, but I will post them anyway because it saves me from admitting that I may never finish many of these.

ATLA Fics (this is not technically a WIP so much as a brainstorming list, but whatever)
Death Note - Chocolate-Covered Oranges Outline
Death Note - Midnight Breathing
Death Note - Mouth-to-Mouth of the Sanity (Mello/Matt, I must rediscover you one of these days)
FFXIII - The Bedtime Story Version
Glee - Cabaretverse - Base Post (I harassed a bunch of people over at [ profile] little_details regarding stuff for this and then did nothing with it; I feel a bit bad about that)
Glee - Duck (fluff meme fill that stalled)
Glee - Five Times Fics
Glee - Silence
Inception - [Reversebang - awakening] (our first thing that is not sitting there collecting dust)
Inception - [Scrap]
Inception - Clarify (Scrutinize) (I am fairly sure this was meant as a companion to "Blur (Minutiae)", but it currently contains around a hundred and fifty words of Eames forging his own perception of Puck - the Shakespeare one - so.)
Inception - A Named Problem (actually in progress, yay!)
Inception - Five Stories Ariadne Borrows (And One She Tells) (just waiting for [ profile] faorism to get back to me regarding beta-ing. Also, it is in no way a 5-times fic anymore, and is also the longest fic I have ever written to date.)
Inception - Just What Comes Naturally aka AUGH WHY SELF
Inception - maybe it means nothing [reversebang]
KH - Balance
KH - Riku's Happy Ending (ancient thing I wrote before I had any accounts anywhere but YouTube; will never be posted because it frankly sucks)
Kingdom Hearts - Because Someone Has To Do It (a drabble that got unacceptably big; it's actually finished, I'm just weirdly nervous about posting it)
Kingdom Hearts - Kairi's Story
Kingdom Hearts Mega Fanfic Outline (once I thought I could write longfic. LOL past self, no.)
Narnia - A Once and Always Queen (I really wanna finish this one someday)
X-Over - Death's Take on Light's Life - Death Note & The Book Thief
X-Over - Inception & Black Swan - neurons of murderous dancers ([ profile] crossovers_las story that I fully intend to expand)
X-Over - Inception & Black Swan - Untitled
X-Overs - Inception & Merlin - Corporate Kings and Big-Money Dreams

Feel free to ask about anything.

Meme of LOVE:

Reply to this post, and I'll give you a compliment and/or tell you why I'm thankful to be friends with you. Then put this in your own journal, and spread the love. ♥

First order of business: Three drabbles up at [ profile] ff_yuri_drabble and one at [ profile] ff_xiii .

I'd be really happy if you could read them? )
Second order of business: a meme swiped from [ profile] imadra_blue.

Write down the names of 10 characters.
Write an one-sentence fic for every prompt, using the characters determined by the numbers. Do NOT read the prompts before writing the names.

1. Howl/Howell Jenkins (Howl’s Moving Castle, bookverse)
2. Liesel Meminger (The Book Thief)
3. Holden Caulfield (Do I even need to say it?)
4. Lightning Farron ( Final Fantasy XIII)
5. Rachel Berry ( Glee )
6. Kairi ??? ( Kingdom Hearts )
7. Allianne of Pirate’s Swoop and Olau (Tamora Pierce’s Tortall Universe)
8. Rue ??? ( The Hunger Games )
9. Rokuro Okajima ( Black Lagoon)
10. Agent Lux ( Protectors of the Plot Continuum)
(Note: As I am a member of the PPC and Lux is free for all use, I suppose this could technically be canon. But it really isn't.)

This was actually really fun. )

Discovery: Feet of Clay is the name of a Discworld novel. It is also the name of a rather melodramatic detective novel by Ruth Birmingham which contains quite a few improbabilities and stereotypes about small towns. Should you, perhaps, go to request a novel through an inter-library loan system... always check the author as well as the title.
