can you paint a thought?  
I was saying to oddishly that I'd written very little this year, because except for the fic yesterday, I hadn't posted since about August.

However, I realised that I'd entirely discounted the first part of the year.


DIY Messiah @ 27,000 words; Harry/Draco

Quantum Leap @ 55,000 words; Harry/Draco

Three Steps Back, @ 35,000 words; Albus Severus/Scorpius


Crossing the Rubicon @ 14,000 words; Pete/Mikey, Frank/Gerard, Brendon/Ryan

Inspired by In Bruges @ 2,000 words; Brendon/Ryan

For Whatever You Lose @ 14,500 words; Brendon/Ryan

A Wave You Glide In On @ 14,200 words; Brendon/Ryan

(Why is all my bandom stuff 14,000 words?!)


The Beautiful Game, @ 12,000 words

That comes to about 168,000 words altogether, if my finger-counting arithmetic is correct (and it probably isn't). Not too shabby after all.

This was also the year of the least comments ever on everything I wrote; but happily it coincided with me caring less than I ever have. Not that this isn't a thinly-veiled hint for people who might have missed out on these earlier to go read them now, BUT STILL.

2009 means one and a half more years before I start earning a paycheck/dying of stress. Whee.

Mmm, three steps back *.* I remember waiting so eagerly for each part

And I remember feeling so guilty for not updating with with alacrity. D:

AHA, I knew it. (Kinda.) Butbutbut, original fic? You write original fic?! How did I not know this already?

(In the meantime, oh my god I just rediscovered this fic, and it's Jon/Brendon which I ALSO discovered is not your thing at all, and did I tell you anything about my fic before you offered to beta for me? Because ILU LOTS AND LOTS, just a reminder. Anyway, if you haven't read it, you need to do so immediately, because this Spencer pretty much rules the universe, and Brendon is a sweetheart and Jon is - well, Jon's the Jon that is being difficult in bandom right now, the awesome kind, and you should read it even though it's Jon/Brendon. Because it's hilarious.)

ALSO - oh, for god's sake, why don't we live in places that I could just talk your ear off for the afternoon and not have to embarrass myself in your journal? *scowls* - frantic_mice in bandom! Is this your doing?! Because frantic_mice in bandom!

Off to the original fic :D

Because I don't write an awful lot of it? It requires a lot of work for very little reward. If you are reading it, DON'T start with the latest one - it's dreadful. Go by the tag and read one of the other two, I'm not so horribly ashamed of those. :D

I wouldn't put it as strongly as that! I can take Panic in all permutations, I just don't ship Jon as much as the others. I have read that and I think I might even have commented (!), but I'll read it again. I read lots of things in bandom twice, it's so much fun.

Man, I must do my eyes like your icon some time.

Again, I can't take all the credit for that - it was my rec of your stuff, after all! I hope she has some fun here. The fic is universally delightful, regardless of all the other little rubs in bandom itself.

Oh, I hadn't realized you wrote a new original fic! *goes read*

Ah! I have no recollection of what I wrote this year... I should check that! Ahh! I really want to read Quantum Leap, but I have about 90 things to read first:) 168k isn't shabby at all!

Quantum Leap ... I never know what to think about my HP stuff, but that was for hardcore fans of my stuff only, methinks. Otherwise you'll end up just wanting to kill me.

No! I didn't realise it was so much. :D

Oh yay, I think I've read nearly everything here. I have The Beautiful Game and For Whatever You Lose saved to read, but yes the rest. :)

Btw, you totally broke my heart with Three Steps Back. Also, I love your OCs so much! They're always wonderful and so real.

<3 Yay for more fic in 2009!

I didn't think you were a fan of Brendon/Ryan, though? Regardless, I hope you like it! It has mermaids!

It always worries me to hear that, because I have no idea why. Or how. Like, one day the talent will desert me and everyone will be like, write them properly! and I'll be like, BUT I DON'T KNOW HOWWWWWWWWWWW.

I hope so! :D

It's not my favourite or anything, but I read it when I like the author, know it will be good. :)

Don't be worried! And I don't think you'll ever lose that writing part of you, but if you do, you'll always have other things, ok.

Me too!
