Fic Year in Review 2020

I seem to be writing a bit less year over year since S1 of LoT, but I still wrote, which is the important thing. This year I blame my renewed passion for counted cross stitch for my lack of writing. I can't write (or read) fic with a needle in one hand and a hoop in the other.

Fic Written in 2020
All links and stats to/from AO3.

Fandom: The Flash
Fic: Sweet Distraction (Barry Allen/Leonard Snart) Teen
Summary: It wasn't until he'd been home for a week that Barry got his first glimpse of his new neighbor.

Fandom: Arrow, The Flash
Fic: Suddenly Everything Changed (Barry Allen/Oliver Queen) Explicit
Summary: When Barry Allen first learned about soulmarks in school at the age of ten, he couldn't wait to run home to talk to his parents. Oliver Queen did not believe in soulmates… until he is shown otherwise. Soulmates AU.

Fandom: Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash
Fic: Single in Central City (Sara Lance/Leonard Snart) Teen
Summary: Lisa Snart is 10 years old and lives with her big brother Leonard. When Lisa calls a radio station on Christmas Eve to say that her brother needs to find a romantic partner, little does she know that his perfect mate is listening to the call. If only Sara didn't live so far away.

Fandom: Legends of Tomorrow
Fic: Birthday Wishes and Christmas Dreams (Sara Lance/Leonard Snart) Gen
Summary: Sara glanced up, a small smile curving on her lips at the sight of the object of her thoughts.

Total word count: 21,506 (according to AO3)

Fandoms written in: Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Arrow

Looking back, did you write more fic than you thought you would this year, less, or about what you’d predicted? About what I expected. I knew that I wouldn't be able to keep up with the sheer volume that I did in 2016.

What’s your own favorite story of the year? Suddenly Everything Changed - I had been wanting to try a Soulmates AU for a while and I really enjoyed doing so for my first Olivarry story.

Did you take any writing risks this year? Only if you consider writing a new trope and a new pairing a risk.

Do you have any fanfic or profic goals for the New Year? Just to keep writing.

My best story of this year: According to the Kudos on AO3 it would be Suddenly Everything Changed

My most popular story of this year: Going by the Hit Count on AO3 it's Suddenly Everything Changed

Story of mine most under-appreciated by the universe, in my opinion: I only wrote 4 stories this year, and I don't feel like any of them are under-appreciated.

Most fun story to write: Sweet Distraction

Story with the single sexiest moment: Suddenly Everything Changed - Soulmarks are erogenous zones.

Hardest story to write: Single in Central City - Movie AUs can always be hard to adapt, even when I do use most of the dialog from the movie.

Biggest Surprise: That I didn't write more. I had other ideas, but no compulsion to write them.

Story/stories I haven’t yet written, but intend to: This hasn't really changed from the last couple of years. I still haven't written these.
* Flommy sequel to Suddenly Everything Changed
* Sicily story - post Destiny with meta!Leonard. (Been slowly working on this one but it still needs an ending.)
* Next part in Finding Home series. (Sara and Leonard move in together.)
* Next part in Unfamiliar Dreams series. (Wedding!)
* Alternate Earth with seaQuest crossover.
