Fic Tally (2017)

I wrote HOW many stories this year? :)

First, a little background:

I joined LJ in October of 2006 (first post in November), and posted my first story, Announcement I: The Ready Room was a Clark/Bruce tale, and the remaining 3 stories for that year were of that pairing as well.

I counted each year’s stories, and broke them down by pairing, which I’ll discuss below the stats. I used the following method: simple counting, but if a multi-chapter story started in one year and ended in the next, I counted the year it began. Time And Place was posted in 2006 and ended in early 2007.

Naturally I counted a pairing if they were the focus of the story, but if they shared equal ‘screen time’ with another couple or couples, that story was also counted as theirs. In some of my multiple pairing stories, several couples could count it as their story (Strange Brew, The Jig’s Up!, and many others). Ollie/Dinah, for instance, have a number of 8 in the early years, but only 1 story was written with them as the lead couple. The rest are stories they share with others. So if anyone bothered to total the pairings and the story totals, the pairings would be a higher total than the stories.

Here are the statistics, broken down by year and pairing/threesome:

2017 was an interesting year. I wrote 32 stories, one more than the 31 total for 2016.

Bruce/Dick was the top pairing, a logical progression since I'd signed up for the 2017 Bruce/Dick Bingo Card. They took top honors with 9 stories, a big jump from 0 in 2016!

Steve/Diana were in second place with 5 stories, inspired by the Wonder Woman movie and my 2017 DCU Wonder Woman Love Fic/Art Diamond Anniversary Challenge. It was a pleasure to write this couple as they had become so popular after a quarter-century of canon neglect. I hope to write them quite a bit more in 2018, both movie and comics versions.

Clex was a joy to write as well, with 5 stories. I always manage to write at least a few stories starring the boys, inspired by clexmas for their early SV charm.

My only deadlines this year was my Wonder Woman Love Challenge and the clexmas Holiday Exchange. No Big Bangs, the first year I'd skipped since 2011. I just felt that the time commitment wasn't for me in 2017, which turned out to be prescient as I became sick and my time for writing was severely curtailed.

I also wanted to go through a fannish year without a lot of deadlines, preferring just to drift along and see where things would take me. It worked out pretty well.

I"m not sure about my direction this year. I might let the dcu_bang and marvel_bang slide by again this year. I just don't have any ideas of Big Bang-length, but there's still time before sign-ups begin.

I might find myself inspired by The Avengers 3: Infinity War, and there's the DC Rebirth of the comics that's been leagues better than the Nu52. There's always my fringe fandoms and perhaps getting back to long-abandoned projects. I kind of like that drifting-along thing, anyway. :)
