My best story this year: Don't You Shake Alone

My favorite story this year: "Being Found"

Most fun story to write: Oh, man, I had a lot of fun this year. "Alibi" and "Tactical Shit" both stick in my mind for the fun of smushing those universes and characters together, and "Breakfast of Discordians" was made of giggles.

Story with the single sexiest moment: ...Huh, most of the porn I wrote this year was kinky in some way, wasn't it. Ummm. I'll go with "Still Afloat". Or possibly "If He Moves When He Shouldn't" or "Responsible Use of Magic". Or "Probably Your Girl". Any of those really.

Story that got the most unexpected reaction from readers: Haha, so I have never really written the juggernaut pairing in a juggernaut fandom like Teen Wolf before, so both "Comforter" (my first Stiles/Derek story) and "Break the Lock If It Don't Fit" (my first NC-17 Stiles/Derek story) were kind of o.O experiences.

Most "Holy crap, that's wrong, even for you" story: "Break the Lock If It Don't Fit" was in fact down on my to-write list as "domestic violence apologia" before I came up with a title. /o\ Oh and the creepy dubcon Brad/sexbot!Nate thing. I almost forgot that. For some reason.

Hardest story to write: "Waking", actually, was a story that I started writing in 2007 and went through multiple iterations and drafts and head-desking moments and betas from [personal profile] iulia before I was finally satisfied with it and decided to make it a Yuletide gift last year.

"Rocks in the Pathway" also was difficult, as it sat miserably stalled for months (having been planned for years) before [personal profile] commodorified pointed out to me that the trouble with the story was that I was doing it wrong and I figured out how to drag it onto the right track.

This is one of those years, also, where the hardest stories I have been grappling with all year are the ones that still aren't done god dammit. Sigh. Onward.

Biggest surprise: TEEN WOLF. o.O

Most unintentionally telling story: Probably "Being Found".
