Snurched from izhilza and astrogirl2 on lj. (in toto from astro, I even stole her commentary about it!) Also, fanfic writing, I miss you! I want to come back!

Here's kind of a nifty fic meme:

I have 59 works archived at AO3. Pick a number from 1 (the most recent) to 59 (the first thing I posted there), and I'll tell you three things I currently like about it.

Although it strikes me that this could get somewhat embarrassing, either because I might find myself going, "But I hate this story now! Thanks for reminding me!" or because it's a little awkward to go trumpeting your own awesome. But, hey, we'll see!

I committed fic! Unfortunately it's not one of the multiple Stargate fics I've got as WIPs (yes, yes, including the Leverage sequel crossover). But it is one I've been contemplating since the end of Season 5, so...progress?

It's my first non-Stargate fic of any kind. Doctor Who Fandom. Hope you enjoy.

While I tried to honor/honour the show’s British background, I may have committed Americanisms in spelling/grammar/phrasing. My apologies. First attempt in Who fandom. Transcript quote in summary from [personal profile] jpgr (whose transcripts are AWESOME!)

Yes, you read that right, fic. The 150th round of SG1 Five Things has been published, and I took a prompt.

Go here to read all the awesome fic

I committed my own entry off "Five Reasons the Galaxy Speaks So Much English". It was just a bit of fun.

See, I am still around! Yes, I mostly lurk and comment rather than write in my own journal, but I am still here! *waves to flist*

Hope everyone is doing well. I'm still loving my new job but it's keeping me very very very busy. I'm usually brain and computer fried by teh time I catch up on my flist. However, I did wander around this week and discovered [personal profile] paian rec'cing a round robin kind of fic set up on Dreamwidth.

It's called [community profile] arboreal_gate. It's for gen/het/slash/femslash and any kind of Gateverse you like, SG-1, SGA, or SGU. Write a scene. Write a line. Start a new one. Branch an existing WIP into a new direction.

I just wrote a scene in a second version of a fic Fluffy Branch 2. The team's returned from a strange offworld experience and now they've got problems of their own.

Go enjoy the fics there, or play yourselves!

Title: Dear SGC Advisor...
Authors: [personal profile] aurora_novarum & [personal profile] holdouttrout
Category: Humor; Gen; Classic Team Era
Word Count: 1600

Summary: With everything SG teams and staff encounter, who can they turn to and get some honest, practical advice?

Aurora's Author Note: This fic was inspired by a random joke-comment [personal profile] holdouttrout made in a chat that inspired my silly muse with a plot bunny. In revenge, I corralled her into helping me write it. No matter what she may say, we're equal partners (unless there's some screwup, then it's definitely my fault, heh).

Dear SGC Advisor... )

My latest attempt at five things turned into five very distinct ficlets, so they get titles and everything. Most are classic team, but a Season 10 era snuck in there as well. :-)

PG rated, mostly Gen. Very teamy. :-)

The theme was: "Five times SG1 narrowly escape without even knowing it"

But For A Moment... )
Just A Routine Day )

A Perfect Trap )

I played with an sg-1 five things prompt over on lj land, and came up with not one but TWO variations. Both gen and very short!

2009. My rebellious year. But it's still been a busy year fandomwise. I organized my first ficathon ever! And it turned out better than I ever dreamed. jacksamfriends was a quirky setup, but lots of fun (at least I had fun, and I gathered others did too), with LOTS of great fic as a result.

There was a big dry spell in the middle of the year, but I did do some dvd commentaries on fic. I even made icons! Go me!

Still busy with redial_the_gate. I can't believe we're in Season Six. I remember when were thinking, omg, we're going to do ten seasons? This will take years! And we're well over half-way there.

I've been a bad wiki editor for Solutions Stargate wiki. At least I've still been doing transcripts. Some of Atlantis, all of Universe to date. I still have to get back to doing the dvd commentary recaps for the comm site and stuff. Just getting a bit burned out sometimes. (As always, if anyone wants to volunteer to write up something for ANY of the Stargates, in the wiki, poke me!)

I've apparently turned into an sg1_five_things monster, because I've done two more of them again this week At least *this* week, I was able to fit each of them in one comment. (And I encourage you to go visit sg1_five_things and read them all, especially the Hammond ones!

Rating: PG (for canonesque violence and minor language)

Summary: Hardison has an unusual run-in with "the Man".

Author's Note: Hopefully the fic speaks for itself (as "Other Characters" if you're not familiar with one of the fandoms). Thanks to [profile] ultranos_fic for some computer culture advice and [profile] annerbhp for alpha/beta duties. Any errors or inaccuracies remain my own.

Title: Red Shirt Airman
Category: Missing Scene from "the Scourge"; Character Study; Gen; Action
Warnings: Language; icky bugs; Season 9 Scourge spoilers
Rating: PG-13 ish
Word Count: ~480

Summary: Airman Walker's thoughts while on guard duty at the caves.

Author's Notes: Done for a challenge a few years ago. Was my first really short story and first attempt at stream of consciousness. The original story was always hidden because I thought it was utter dreck. [personal profile] zats_clear read it and convinced me to let it see the light of day, so here's a slightly polished version. Thanks to zats for betaing (Any and all blame still goes to me ;-).

Wow, I was quite prolific this year. Twenty stories all told (compared to 14 last year). Some of which is because I got the crazy idea in my head to write birthday fics for a lot of people on my flist. I failed at some and still owe people others, so...I don't think I'm going to try that again this year. My personal WIP list grew cobwebs (and got a bit bigger). It was very fun to use my writing powers for others.

(I'd planned to do twenty-one, but stupid muse is being too talky).

Most of my fic fit within ONE lj entry, so that was new and unusual. Overall--well, I was kind of middle of the road. I didn't have too many absolute clunkers, but not sure how many fics I'd consider my best ever, either. It was an interesting exploring/playing with writing as hobby year for me.

I also did two "dvd commentaries" on fanfic. I made a banner (two actually, but one's not ready for prime time reveal yet). I made some more icons (not that they're necessarily any better than my others, but it was fun).
