I've also written 30K words for a new Arrow fic that is almost finished, but won't be posted until 2016 now.

Total word count: 34,791 (according to AO3)

Fandoms written in: The Fosters, Arrow, Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Looking back, did you write more fic than you thought you would this year, less, or about what you’d predicted? More. Considering I hadn't really written anything in over two years, this was a lot of writing for me this year.

What’s your own favorite story of the year? Maybe Purgatory Isn't Such a Bad Place to Be

Did you take any writing risks this year? I entered two new fandoms this year - The Fosters and Arrow - which is always scary.

Do you have any fanfic or profic goals for the New Year? I need to finish the long Arrow fic that I've been working on. I'd also like to revisit two crossovers I started a while ago but never finished. One is Pretender/Dollhouse and the other is BtVS/Lost Girl.

My best story of this year: According to the Kudos on AO3 it would be Maybe Purgatory Isn't Such a Bad Place to Be.

My most popular story of this year: Going by the Hit Count on AO3 it's Maybe Purgatory Isn't Such a Bad Place to Be.

Story of mine most under-appreciated by the universe, in my opinion: Broken Chains, I really enjoyed bringing Oz and Angel together in this story, giving them something to bond over on their own.

Most fun story to write: Through the trees of loneliness - Tommy is such a flirt and I really enjoyed getting a chance to have him and Felicity get together.

Story with the single sexiest moment: Be Careful What You Freudian Slip

Hardest story to write: I'm going to have to go with Broken Chains because it was written over the course of several years.

Biggest Surprise: That I wrote anything at all this year, let alone in two new fandoms. First I was inspired to write What Comes Next? which is a missing scene from a pivotal episode on the show (youngest on screen gay kiss). And then I got inspired to write Maybe Purgatory Isn't Such a Bad Place to Be in a week after watching Romancing the Stone. I haven't written anything that long in many, many years, let alone that quickly.

Best lines:
"Now what has such an intriguing smile gracing your face?"

"Chair bondage," Felicity answered before her faulty brain-to-mouth filter could censor her. She gasped, turning wide eyes to look at Tommy Merlyn, who was choking on the sip of beer he'd just taken. She automatically began to rub soothing circles on his back as he rested against the bar.

Story/stories I haven’t yet written, but intend to: I really want to write a Smoaking Billionaires (Tommy/Felicity/Oliver) story this year.
