In a meme-y mood...

...and also in a "Me! Me!" mood.

Well, not really. I just happened to see these two memes and felt like extending the chain.

Meme in which I talk about me...


From lost_spook (though it seems to be missing #7, so I renumbered them). I love looking at my works on AO3 and evaluating them.

AO3 Stats Meme

1. Your 3 fanfics with the most comments:

  1. The Actor
  2. Calling the Doctor
  3. Mistaken Identity

I think the coolest thing about the comments on The Actor is that they include one from a mother who told me that her autistic daughter loves the story and keeps it on her Kindle so that she can read it any time. I teared up when I read that.

2. Your 3 fanfics with the most kudos:

  1. The Actor
  2. Mistaken Identity
  3. Calling the Doctor

This set of three is going to repeat over and over. I'm pretty much a one-trick pony - I got my one good story written, with tons (well, tons as far as I'm concerned; not that many, really) of kudos and comments and whatnot, and then the rest are pretty average. All of the stats on The Actor dwarf those of the other two by 4x or more. And Calling the Doctor cheated - it's got a bunch of numbers only because it's a collection of short stories, so it has repeat visitors each time I post a new one (which hasn't happened in over year, sadly).

3. Your oldest fanfic:


When I first started writing, I posted on ffnet and Teaspoon. When I made an account on AO3, I wasn't sure how to post or how it all worked, so I chose an indifferent (in my eyes, anyway) piece to post first. Thus, my first posted on AO3 is not my first written.

4. Your latest fanfic:


I wrote this for who_at_50's fanwork-a-thon back in November. That's how little I've been writing recently. Actually, I've been writing every day - just never on the same thing two days in a row, and I haven't actually finished anything.

5. The fanfic you're most proud of:


There's no comparison. I think it's the best thing I've written. Honourable mention to "Every Mirror". And I really, really like Neighbours. I still haven't figured out why.

6. Your longest fanfic:


Coming in at just above 50k words.

7. Your 3 fanfics with the most bookmarks:


  1. The Actor
  2. Mistaken Identity
  3. Calling the Doctor

Oh, look. These three again.

8. Your Top 3 Crossover fics:


  1. Mistaken Identity
  2. "Bloody Doctors!"
  3. "A Splendid Day"
  4. "Ravenous"

Well, to be honest, I've only written four crossover fics. Mistaken Identity was the first multi-chapter fic I wrote. A bit trope-y (doppleganger crossover, anyone?) but rather fun, I think. "A Splendid Day" is a companion piece to it. Then I wanted to write an entry for a dA group's "trope" prompt. I chose doppleganger crossover and chose DW with Broadchurch, producing "Bloody Doctors!" but it was too long for the prompt, so I had to start again and produced "Ravenous".

Funny thing is, "Bloody Doctors!" is my most successful one-shot story, going by kudos. I still get kudos for it every couple of weeks, while all of my other one shots are silent. I have not figured out why. It really isn't that remarkable a story.


Meme in which you ask about me...


Mercilessly ganked from paynesgrey. I would love if you would choose a letter and ask me to talk about the topic. I'll warn you not to choose the Tumblr topics, because I don't really do anything on Tumblr, so the answer will be "I have no idea." The rest, I'll give an honest try.

Pick a letter and I will ramble. Post to your own journal so we can ramble together! Co-ramble!

A - Ships that you currently like a lot. (They don’t have to be OTPs because not everyone has OTPs.) Friendships, pairings, threesomes, etc. are allowed.
B - A pairing–platonic, romantic or sexual–that you initially didn’t consider, but someone changed your mind.
C - A ship you have never liked and probably never will.
D - A pairing you wish you liked but just can’t.
E - Have you added anything cracky/hilarious to your fandom? If so, what?
F - What’s the longest you’ve ever been in a fandom?
G - Have you ever had an OTP? If so, do you remember your first one? Who was in it?
H - What is your favorite source text for fandom stuff (e.g., TV shows, movies, books, anime, Western animation, etc.)?
I - Has Tumblr caused you to stop liking any fandoms, if so, which and why?
J - Name a fandom you didn’t think about until you saw it all over Tumblr. (You don’t have to care about it or follow it; it just has to be something that Tumblr made you aware of.)
K - What character has your favorite development arc/the best development arc?
L - Say something genuinely nice about a character who isn’t one of your faves. (Characters you’re neutral about are fair game, as are characters you merely dislike. Characters that you absolutely loathe with the fire of ten thousand suns are exempt, as there is no point in giving yourself an aneurysm over a character that you hate.)
M - Name a character that you’d like to have for a friend.
N - Name three things you wish you saw more or in your main fandom (or a fandom of choice).
O - Choose a song at random. Which ship or character does it remind you of?
P - Invent a random AU for any fandom (we always need more ideas).
Q - A fandom you’ve abandoned and why.
R - Which friendship/platonic relationship is your favorite in fandom?
S - Show us an example of your personal headcanon (prompts optional but encouraged)
T - Do you have any hard and fast headcanons that you will die defending?
U - Three favorite characters from three different fandoms, and why they’re your favorites.
V - Which character do you relate to most?
W - A trope which you are virtually certain to hate in any fandom.
X - A trope which you are almost certain to love in any fandom.
Y - What are your secondhand fandoms (i.e., fandoms you aren’t in personally but are tangentially familiar with because your friends/people on your dash are in them)?
Z - Just ramble about something fan-related, go go go! (Prompts optional but encouraged.)
