giddygeek: tree silhouette with rainbows & hearts (true story!)
The Curious Case of That Time with the Thing -- 5800 words, Shawn/Gus from Psych. This was my Yuletide story, written for Skeiler. I fricking loved writing this story. It was so much fun, and they're so much fun! Shawn is like the perfect character for me, he and Gus are the perfect partners for each other, and I just love them.

When I got my recipient's request form, I thought, OMG, I don't know if I can actually write that show, what was I thinking! I considered writing one of the other fandoms that we don't actually match on but I really like the source material (Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell). In the end, I think this worked out much better than that would have. *G*

Including Yuletide, this year I wrote 15 stories in four fandoms, for a total of 40,300 words. A lot of them were request fics. Not my best year for word count but when I was putting together the list of what I'd written, I was still pleased with all of the stories, which almost never happens.

Some things that stood out for me --

Snips and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails Pete/Patrick, 6000 words for [livejournal.com profile] kalpurna. This was probably the most challenging story I wrote this year, and the one I was most uncertain of -- and now that I have a little distance from it, I have really good feelings about it.

The Stars from the Ground Jack/Ianto, 2600 words for [livejournal.com profile] misspamela. For some reason, most of my Torchwood fic is not as fluffy as what I usually write. This one, however, is a flat out fluffy wallow and I just love it to bits.

Go Out Swinging John/Rodney, 3200 words. I surprised myself with this one -- I thought I was finished writing SGA. But I had so much fun with John and Rodney in this that I wrote them a couple more times before the end of the year. And oh, do I ever want to write Vegas stories. Lots and lots of Vegas stories. *G*

The complete list of 2008 stories. )

Threesomes, penguins, nursing homes, first dates, genderswaps, jails on strange planets, and running out of gas on deserted highways. I sure do have a lot of fun at the expense of people I like. *G*
