Total number of completed stories: not counting drabbles, 10. I wrote sixteen drabbles that were decent enough to be reposted after the meme.
Total word count: without my wips, it can't be more than 30k. my guess is 25k.
Fandom breakdown: shinee, super junior, beast, 4minute, dream high, snsd, sm the ballad, jay park. apparently I didn't write anything f(x) this year??

Overall Thoughts

Looking back, did you write more fic than you thought you would this year, less, or about what you'd predicted?
I wrote way, way less than in years past. part of this is probably since I didn't do a big bang, which would have beefed it up, and because of the drain of olymfics. after that I swore I'd never do another fic competition or exchange, I was so drained...and then I signed up for ficmix. rule for the future: STOP SIGNING UP FOR STUFF.

What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in january?
dream high, since before it aired I was all trololol that is going to be a terrible show and then I was clawing at my face at how perfect kim soohyun was and how terrible taek was :(. I didn't expect to write this much snsd either, or kangteuk and hyoyeon/donghae.

What's your own favorite story of the year?
of the "real" stories, I would probably say my ficmix. it could have been better, but looking back on it I was more inspired than I was for a lot of stuff this year. of my drabbles, blame game jongho, inspector juju jonghyun/junhyung, and the silence jongyu are my favorites. ha, they all have jonghyun in them, that's sadly a coincidence.

Did you take any writing risks this year? What did you learn from them?
I signed up for olymfics and help_japan T_______T I learned that it's very difficult to force yourself to be inspired by something. although honestly, it turned out all right in the end.

Do you have any fanfic or profic goals for the new year?
lol profic /ha/ /ha/ /ha/
-I want to finish sailor moon!snsd and cyborg 009!snsd please make me do this guys
-I want to finish onjonghyung (I know I know you're all laughing)
-I want to finish my sailor moon fic
-I want to convince everyone to write jongho no really.

From my past year of writing, what was...

My best story of this year:
lol I don't think I'm qualified to pick and I'm too much of a negative nellie :(

My most popular story of this year:
I guess maybe my kiseung olymfic, but I don't feel like I wrote anything really popular this year.

Story of mine most under-appreciated by the universe, in my opinion:
kangteuk olymfic and ficmix. but it's not like I can expect much when I'm writing about eeteuk and eunhyuk, given they're two of the most hated people in fandom.

Most fun story to write:
almost all of the drabbles, especially the sm the ballad ones, the jonghyun/world ones. the snsd au wips I have are pretty fun too, I need to remind myself of that and work on them :|

Story with the single sexiest moment:
lol I didn't even write that much touching this year.

Most "holy crap, that's wrong, even for you" story:
when I thought up the "domestic apocalypse" scenario for jongyu I was like wtf that is so wrong. but adventure time does it, so :\

Story that shifted my own perceptions of the characters:
writing kangteuk required me to think about eeteuk outside of his foot-in-mouth moments? but that's the way he is I guess, he's hilarious one moment and infuriating the next.

Hardest story to write:
fuck. kiseung. olymfic. I still hate the ending. I remember sitting in the tv room writing it and just silently raining on my face and jen came over and was like WHAT IS WRONG and I was like...the internet...help_japan was a sloppy process because I couldn't inspire myself, but once I thought of the eventual ideas it wasn't that bad. I went through like three different premises for the juju/jonghyun fic though and that sucked.

Biggest disappointment:
the wips I didn't finish by the end of the year, and my kiseung olymfic :\ although I'm not sure if I'm more disappointed by my writing or the reaction in the voting. rating it high or low didn't bother, but when people said it wasn't canon or that the interpretation of the prompt wasn't good that hurt :\

Biggest surprise:
the fact that I wrote so much snsd. in non-surprises: the abundance of jonghyun pairings.

Most unintentionally telling story:
????? I guess jongfany is telling in that's how I see fany if she lived in america all her life. and that I squeezed jaysica into it like a stupid thing.

sorry for being such an angstbunny, guys :( but I'm excited for coming home and doing nothing and hopefully talking to people and writing fic. and for london ofc :3
