All right, I'll bite. This is ganked from flowsoffire, a_phoenixdragon, and rumpelsnorcack.

I currently have 33 works archived at AO3. Pick a number from 1 (the most recent) to 33 (the first thing I posted there), and I'll tell you three things I currently like about it.

#7 is A Choice of a Lifetime. It's the first in my second AU for The Actor and sets the stage for all of the fics after it.

I suppose I'm not supposed to talk about what I don't like about it, but I just wanted to note that I'm really not fond of the conflict I set up between David and Amy. I needed them to fight over a moral issue, but I don't think I handled it well, especially when giving David an opinion that he normally wouldn't have (that was the point - his changing worldview). It could really be improved upon, but I've never wanted to take the time to go back and try.

1. I absolutely loved dropping Catherine Tate into the world of Doctor Who! Well, she really didn't get to visit that universe, other than getting the chance to see inside the TARDIS, but she had to deal with all of the otherworldly things that David was telling her, and it was just marvelous.

2. I didn't get to have Ten and Eleven interact as much as I would have liked, but what little they did was great! I especially loved having Eleven "supervise" Ten while he did some techy stuff (and I left Ten's irritation at that to the reader's imagination).

3. I've had a couple of opportunities to write the transformation of an arched human back into the Doctor, but this is the first time that I've followed the precedent set in the show and made it agonizing. I, like most everyone else it seems, have always thought the reversion would be glorious and empowering, but really, it should hurt just as much as becoming the human did. Anyway, and I hope this doesn't reflect badly on me, but I loved torturing poor David physically with this. I think the scenes worked pretty well.

Those good points do sound pretty good! :) And eh, you're also allowed your reservations about the fic. I guess there's a difference between beating oneself up and being lucid about the things we think we could have done better ;) And that allows us to question ourselves and progress…
