Year in Review, 2006 - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
Year in Review, 2006
Eh, why not do it again? It's been a year.

General review snagged last year from awelkin

Go to your Calendar and find the first entry for each month of 2005. Post the first line of it in your journal, and that's your "Year In Review."

January: All right, clean slate. Which I didn't start by getting my house clean today, in the words of Stuart Smalley, "That's okay, because I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggonnit, my roommate's cat likes me." (12/24/06: Yeah, right.)

February: R/Ters... don't forget that the rt_challenge, er, challenges start today. A prompt a day, for drabbles, sketches, whatever.

March: Tonks went to the Burrow for Molly's birthday, and while she was there, she talked to Bill about the Greyback's "pups," and learned that Alderman wanted to get away.

April: Eek. I just realized I haven't checked any of my e-mail addresses for a week. Must come up with a better way to handle that! Maybe I'll make gmail my homepage instead of my journal.

May: Okay, so for random reasons, I've had Romeo and Juliet on the brain. And while I can find when it was most likely written, and when its antecedents were written, what I can't find is much information about when it's set.

June: Okay. Last Shades entry for a couple of weeks, but I figured I should at least finish the chapter before I enforce a break on myself.

July:What is it with SF/F fans and kids?

August:Writing riddles is difficult. Rhyming them is also difficult. And annoying. Naturally, I opted to do this--sixteen interlocking rhymed riddles to do a treasure hunt--with no prompting whatsoever.

September: Well, the pups managed to get through the rescue, and Remus and Tonks lived through it, but unexpectedly got a bit more intimate than they had previously been. Remus's response to this is less than stellar ("What have I done?") and Tonks doesn't take it well.

October: Well, I've never read James Patterson before, and the cover copy on Mary, Mary sounded interesting. (Serial killer stalking perfect Hollywood moms... can Alex Cross catch her before she kills again?)

November: Whoa. Finished today's 2000 words before I have to leave for work. Cool. :)

December: Well, I've been threatening for a while on this. Just the teaser for now.

Fanfic year in review
Adapted from ani_bester last year.

favorite story this year (of my own, not including Shades): Gens Lupina

my best story this year: Shades

most underappreciated by the universe, in my opinion: I've been lucky and blessed with a lot of people who are kind enough to read. Nothing's gone comment-less.

most fun story: Not a Knut

sexiest story: Shades got a bit steamy, I guess.

"holy crap, that's wrong, even for you" story: Nothing's really coming to mind. No Merry/Buffybot or anything weird like that this year. Law and Aurors (which I swear I'm going to finish) isn't all that bizarre, though I guess it's the closest.

story that shifted my own perceptions of the characters: Leaving Tomorrow

hardest story to do: Changed my mind. I forgot about The Killing Moon and its follow-up, The Most Haunted Dwelling In Britain, Part Two. Those were sort of grueling.

biggest disappointment: Teamwork It's not horrible, but I wanted it to be a lot better.

biggest surprise: That I was way more interested in the original character I made up for my NaNo than in the one that was a fanfic character with her serial numbers removed.

most telling story: Leaving Tomorrow

A story I want remembered: Kind of an oddball one, but Everything, about Lupin's parents.

I like these meme-things. Mind if I borrow them for my own journal???
Merry Christmas!

That's the whole point of a meme! Enjoy.
