As DCook sang: "When writing your history, I will always be a footnote, a warning sign of mistakes made..."

Bingo prompt-writing challenges participated in from June 2010 = 3.
Bingos actually made within bingo-scoring period = zero, FML.

However, I did subsequently get my act together and manage to post two amnesty blackouts and a bingo + 9 extras, frivolously and respectively entitled Endless Love, Shelter me, Comfort me, and The Sound of Worlds Colliding:

Historical: World War IIOther: ActorsAlternate History: Someone never diedAlternate History: Major historical event changedOther: Castaways
Other: Evil Goateed UniverseOther: AliensOther: Film
Fantasy & Supernatural: Witches and
Alternate History: Someone
died/didn’t come back
Fantasy & Supernatural: Author's ChoiceHistorical: Napoleonic EuropeFREE
Other: The Oldest Professions – Lawyers, hookers

Other: MutantsHistorical: Western
Historical: Ancient CivilizationsOther: CriminalsHistorical: World War IOther: High-schoolOther:
Fantasy & Supernatural: VampiresOther: DetectivesAlternate History: Author’s Choice - Someone said noFuture: Author's Choice – Magical Realism UtopiaOther: Police

I’ve never really been too stressed out about word count – it doesn’t necessarily bespeak quality, it just bespeaks long! – but I actually think my word count for 2010 may have come in at northward of 200k words, leaving aside the stories I wrote with [ profile] frackin_sweet. Which is quite a few more words than I expected...

Challenges I didn’t flake on: [ profile] au_bigbang's Anthemicronicon (~42k, with prequel | AU!sequel), [ profile] rpf_big_bang’s Labyrinth 2015 | Something Blue (~36k), and [ profile] ficforhope's Stand and Deliver (~30k with sequel).

I also wrote for the Cookleta roundtable (15k!) and another 10k for Ludacris kinkmeme and the TG. I, er, somehow made about 25k of mpreg, angsty, fighty and Marysue-y gift fic. Closing out the year, Yuletide clocked in at over11k, and I had around 24k in fandom Christmas challenges and DCook/Carrie fic. And that’s sans the non-DCook pairings, and the stupid unbetaed drabbles, of which I wrote an embarrassing sufficiency!

In conclusion: in 2010, I totally failed at short. Also, I betaed, received too many fic and art gifts, collaborated with [ profile] frackin_sweet and [ profile] clover71, and commissioned art from [ profile] flawlessnights, [ profile] ciudad and [ profile] imlikat. It was my first full year in fandom and an amazing honeymoon year. As some would have it, you never have that year again. ♥

eh, all my bingos will be done in amnesty. But I kinda figured that when I signed up for them. It was more about the prompts!

But doing all those as blackouts is super impressive!

Ah, if I'd been more organized and didn't code like a near-sighted dinosaur, I'd have gotten my act together earlier. I mean, AUbigbang deadline was March! *sighs* I had a good time with the bingos, though, and would never have written some stuff (like Evil Goateed Universe!) without 'em, so there's that!

Looking forward to your amnesty fills!

I love that DCook lyric. It is so gorgeous. <3333

Also I will forever envy you for your ridiculous (I mean that in a good way, really!) ability to write so much. ;P

As some would have it, you never have that year again. ♥

Awwww, Jay. This fandom's glad to have you, that's for sure :)

I love you, Nitya, and so appreciate your support and positivity in everything you do. For this year of joy, I wish I could give you (and this fandom!) sunshine and flowers, diamonds and pearls and your hearts' desires - but I gave it words, at least.

*hugs you tight*

i haven't had a chance to respond to your comment on my journal yet. i'm caught up in a lot of things in RL. it had been truly an honor working with you last year. i hope we can do it again some time (if my work doesn't kill me yet, ugh).

strange that you started with a line from the lyrics of 'silver'. that's where i got the title of the harrypotter!fic i'm working on, if you've noticed on the banner i posted :) and every chapter title is from the same song. :D

thanks for being there for me always, bb. especially at times i feel like throwing myself over a cliff. *hugs you again*

Okay I'm spamming Jay's inbox today (sorry hon!!) but I have to ask..YOU'RE WRITING A HARRY POTTER AU?! :D :D

Date: 2011-03-06 03:22 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
:) it's not AU, bb. it's canon. and it's for the HP fandom. i offered a birthday fic for a friend and she's addicted to HP fanfics so i asked for a prompt and she requested a harry-tops-draco, after war canon fic (yeah... she likes to punish me, apparently, lol).

Ah, Nitya is a huge HP canon fan too :) I wouldn't say I'm a huge fan, but it's great that you wrote this for your friend!

yay! um... would you like to beta? it involves (a mild form of) bdsm though.

and jay, i'm so so so sorry we've turned your post into some kind of forum here. we love you :)

Sure, I can def beta it! :) I don't know how helpful my comments will be though. (And for the record, I don't mind (mild) BDSM.) My e-mail's golden[dot]girl[dot]hope[at]com.

I'm sorry too, Jay! PLEASE DON'T KILL ME. :3

Aw, I love Silver so much; it's so yearning and competitive, just like DCook is himself :)

I had a blast working so closely with you over two big bangs, my dear - thank you for everything! May your well of inspiration never run dry :)
