Day 9, going fine...

Day 9

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I thought about just linking my most popular stories, but then I thought, what's the point? People have seen them. Why not link things no one has seen?

Then I started looking at my stories at AO3, the most recent first, and I thought, boy, my style and interests have changed since I started writing four years ago. I think my writing has improved a bit, but it seems that everything I write is so, well, depressing. So I went to the last page of the list, and I found I was wrong. I've been depressing ever since I started. Maybe "depressing" is not the word. It's more "serious". I write so little happy, or funny, or light. Ah well. Here are a few, mostly my favorites that no one has ever read (and excluding my AUs and OCs, so they're accessible), with some comments.

"The Dawn of the Doctor": This was the second story I've ever written, a missing scene from the 50th anniversary. I'm still rather proud of it, considering I had no idea what I was doing at the time.

"For This Moment": This is part of Calling the Doctor, a series of stories about how the three Doctors called their other incarnations to assist at Gallifrey. This was my first attempt to repeat themes and draw parallels between two Doctors' situations.

"History and Intuition": This part of A Teacher and a Housemaid, a series of stories about the Farringham School for Boys. It was meant to introduce and paint two teacher characters and expand the characters of Rocastle and Joan, but I also used it to experiment with foreshadowing the events that happen later in "Human Nature" / "Family of Blood".

"The Savage Beast": Another attempt at working with a theme, this is explores the subtle meta thread of music that runs through the Tenth Doctor's life.

"Falling and Rising": This is about a character that is only glimpsed in one episode, so you can almost consider him an OC. I think this presaged my current predilection for writing obscure or unpopular characters and OCs.

"Plains, Trains, and Time Travel Capsules": I wish I'd write more like this. This is not a full plotted story, but just a scene, a cute little timestamp. It has nothing to do with the John Candy/Steve Martin movie - I just couldn't resist the silly name.

"Royal Mail: This was fun, an imagining of the story behind a throwaway line in "The Kingmaker" (not required for understanding the story).

"The Woman Who Didn't": One of my main problems is writing for audios. This is for one of the best audios out there, "Peri and the Piscon Paradox", but relatively few people have heard it and therefore no one wants to read fic based on it. Ah well.

"One Soldier's Story": My most recent story. Gotta pimp it, coz, well, it needs it. :)
