Another AO3 meme

From lost_spook. Here goes!


What’s your first and second most common work ratings?

General Audiences (41)
Teen and Up Audiences (1)

Ha, the total number of fics I've written is highly misleading because I have a number of short story collections that are posted as one fic, rather than separate fics in series. Anyway, this is no surprise, given my answer to the question below and the fact that I don't tend to write violence. Would I write more graphic stories? Sure, if an idea popped up that required it, but so far, none have.


How many fics have you written in each relationship category? Is this more accidental, or do you have preferences?

Gen (40)
F/M (1)

What can I say? I'm not interested in relationships and don't write them. In fact, an hour after the one relationship fic I did write, both characters died.

Technically, I have written fics with Amy and Rory in them, but since the stories were not about their relationship, I did not tag it as such.


What are your top four fandoms by numbers? Are you still active in any of them, and do you tend to migrate a lot?

I'm just going to list all of them, okay?

Doctor Who (41) | Doctor Who (2005) (40) | Doctor Who (1963) (5)
Doctor Who RPF (12) | British Actor RPF (4)
Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling (2)
Broadchurch (1)
Doctor Who (Big Finish Audio) (1)

Yes, I'm a one-trick pony. Everything I do is Doctor Who-related. The only story I've written that isn't is one of the Harry Potter stories - everything else is a DW story or a DW crossover.

The discrepancy in the numbers of DW RPFs and British Actor RPFs comes from the realization that at a particular point, my OC David really stopped being a British actor and started being a DW character. I figured that anyone getting to my stories through these tags would be very disappointed if they were looking for a story about DT.

I'm particularly proud of the Big Finish story, which is why I listed it separately. I really hope to write more stories that relate to the BF audios in the future.


What are your top two most used additional tags, and your bottom two? What would happen if you combined all of these into a fic?

Top two:

Alternate Universe (9)
Episode: The Day of the Doctor (3)

Bottom two:

Audio 081: The Kingmaker (1)
Episode: s04e02 The Fires of Pompeii (1)

I don't use additional tags very much, mostly to mark episodes that my fics are associated with. I don't think I've been diligent about marking my AU stories. I should fix that.

Combine all of these into one fic? I just can NOT imagine how one would make a story that combines "The Day of the Doctor", "The Kingmaker", and "The Fires of Pompeii", but that might be an interesting exercise. Certainly, "The Kingmaker" and "The Fires of Pompeii" deal with similar issues, about how much power the Doctor wields and what he does when what he must do conflicts with his moral compass. It would be hard to tie that in to "The Day of the Doctor", which, at its heart, is all about the Doctor finding a cheat code for avoiding having to make a difficult decision.


What are your top four character tags? Does this match how you feel about the characters, or are you puzzled?

Tenth Doctor (16)
David Tennant (12)
Eleventh Doctor (8)
Amy Pond (6) / Donna Noble (6)

This neither matches my thoughts nor puzzles me. Certainly yes, the Tenth Doctor and David Tennant should be at the top of the list - Ten is my favorite Doctor and the easiest for me to write, and my David AU is the world that my mind lives in most of the time. (I am finding it to be loads of fun to be creating my own characters and extended story. Maybe there's hope yet for me to actually try original fiction.) Donna should be higher on the list, but I know why she's not: I find writing Ten and Donna so easy, I try to stay away from it. (Yes, I'm contrary.)

The surprising thing might be how high Eleven and Amy are on the list, since I'm not that interested in either, but that's because they appear a lot in the David stories, as well as in their own stories. As I complete more of the David stories, Jenny (the Doctor's daughter) will push Amy and Donna out.

Again, my system of publishing short stories as chapters of one work rather than separate works in a series has skewed these results. If I had published all of my stories separately, John Smith (Human Nature) and Martha Jones would be at least in fourth and third, and Martha might have even beat David Tennant.

Hey, there's nothing wrong with being a one-trick pony *adjusts my reins* talking as someone who enjoys being one too (although I am shocked how different my answers would be compared to yours!).

*raises a glass to you*
Long may you continue.
