2015 Shameless Brag Book!

2015 was AWESOME here at 1MW

So 2015 was my first 1MW year and I can honestly say WE ROCKED IT!

So here is your chance to gloat and share you favourite things that you wrote/made in 2015!

I thought I would start us off with possibly the best (definately the best recieved) thing I wrote in 2015.

Avengers Interference - http://archiveofourown.org/works/4081024/chapters/9191461

This is what happens when my Daredevil obsession turns to crossovers. It was so much fun to write and I felt my heart swell everytime someone complimented it. I honestly miss writing it but it ran its course!

So I challenge you all to sift through the thousands of words and graphics produced and come up with what you are most proud of and post it in the comments here so we can have a post summing up the
Best of 2015!!

Also as Dreamy did last year: I will also be offering rewards to those who contribute to help with the effort for 2016: I write and make icons and sigtags.
Here is my list of fandoms: http://1-million-words.livejournal.com/32093.html?thread=10553693#t10553693

Good Luck and enjoy the trail of memories!

My brag is also from the mcu fandom! I wrote this claire/karen fic, it's karen-centric and focused on her mental health after she kills someone. And it's even done pretty well for itself comment-wise which is always awesome ^.^

My brag is in the realm of Lovecraftian horror; I professionally published two short stories last year:

- "Curiosity Shop", featuring a teenaged H.P. Lovecraft exploring a mysterious bookshop that appeared out of nowhere.

- "We'll Leave the Lights On", in which a frazzled family man on vacation on Old Orchard Beach stumbles onto the eldritch side of the vacation spot...

Thanks, G, for picking up my slack. I'm glad to see folks commenting and hope more will share!

My favorite thing I worked on this year:
Everything You Want, Everything You Need
Rated: E
Fandom: Suits- Mike/Harvey
Summary: Mike wants a life with Rachel, but not at the expense of his dom's touch. Harvey's glad he told her. But now the real trick: Not letting Mike learn how much his heart is in play here.

I'm happy with the characterization of just about everyone in the fic, and also with the story it told. It's a simple enough story, but I think (hope) I trusted the reader to interpret some things that were not set out in black and white for some time. I'm very happy with the following it had, in a pretty quiet fandom.

Looking back, I'm also pretty happy with my Steve/Danny stories- I don't feel like I wrote as many this year, but there are quite a few and not bad ones at that!

Thank you again! I'd love any sort of Jessica Jones ficlet- any take that you want. I love the show, but have no particular ships or priorities re: fic for it. Only thing: I'm still watching, am only through epi 8 and watching 9 tonight.

It's cool I'm happy to help! Oooo I love Suits I'll have to give that a read when I am slightly more awake!

One Jessica Jones ficlet coming up! Hope you enjoy the end, it is totally awesome!

The 2015* creation I am most proud of is making Mary Poppins a Gryffindor. And Willy Wonka and the Mad Hatter Slytherins. Oh yeah, I did it.

*the original niggle happened in 2013 -- but everything following that happened in 2015

My brag is 'Petals and Ink', a Hawaii Five AU fic. I think it's safe to say I don't usually do 'small', don't think my writing brain understands keeping things short and simple. Petals was actually conceived from a Flash Challenge suggestion where character A owns a Tattoo Studio and character B owns a Flower Shop. Instead of being a flash fic, it kind of grew into a new series for me, working on the fourth installment now. I don't often write AU's but this one has been a fun ride, with a side helping of lots of angst involved.

I am actually pretty proud of Between the dragons and their wrath (crispy toast remix). It's a sequel to a Game of Thrones/ASOIAF fic by an amazingly brilliant writer of canon-divergent AUs. I was so nervous when I wrote this, because I hadn't created anything for the fandom before, but it turned out okay and the original author liked it, so yay. :D

pride pieces/things I did:

-- finished my seaQuest multi-chapter fic The Hand of Wrath (and it only took me two years, ha) [ship - Nathan/Kristin]

-- turned headcanon into a viable fic for my secondary seaQuest ship with Tarnished. [ship - Krieg/Hitchcock]

-- branched out and tried my hand at Farscape with (Be)longing. [ship - John/Aeryn]

-- got back into the Voyager fandom after awhile of a hiatus. have done a couple things but I think I did the best on Four, which was an angst fic prompt based off of an alleged costuming error that happened in a time-travel episode, lol. [ship - Janeway/Chakotay]

I had a good year, which was surprising considering all the craziness I've had to deal with.

I went back through my stuff and found a couple of stories that I'm pretty pleased with.

1. Midnight Snack which I wrote for SOJ and was my first Castle story.

2. A Way to His Heart a MCU story featuring Phil Coulson and Clint Barton written for another Christmas exchange.

3. Enduring Love a MCU story story featuring Phil Coulson/Natasha Romanov written for the Rare Pair Fest 2015.

4. Chance Encounter another MCU story featuring Phil Coulson/Clint Barton written for Slashorific.

This has taken some thinking. Thank you for that. ;)
I do have such a hard time picking favorites.

I loved Passports and Bacon. Star Trek AOS McChekov AU, 1183 words, slash, teen rated. It started a new world for me, but I have to say that the best part was the prompt!

And a dead guy is another one where the prompt was fantastic. Orig char, 779 words, Het, teen rated.

By far and above, the most effort and best received fic was one that I finally finished for galadriel34 (after 2.5 years). H50 AU McDanno slash 18847 words explicit Infinity

2015 wasn't a good writing year for me.

I stuck to my usual H50 fandom, where I'm most proud of my Mary Ann McGarrett/Matthew Williams fic Set Fire to the Rain (12814 words). I thinking about going back and filling in a lot of the gaps I felt this story has. I know it has the potential to be more.

I dipped my toes into the Teen Wolf fandom where I wrote a bunch! 13 fics of varying word lengths. And the majority of them Derek/Stiles.

I'm most proud of Does this Piercing Make Me Look Sexy? (1775 words) [where Stiles gets a piercing], A Pinch of Seasoning (2429 words) [which is admittedly a WIP but each chapter can be read as a stand alone; Stiles is a food critic and Derek and Laura own a restaurant], Of Magic and Flowers (3270 words) [another WIP; Stiles is of magical royalty and the Hales own a flower shop] and Like a Cowboy (1925 words) [you guessed it, another WIP; cowboy!Derek and ranch-hand!Stiles].

I also wrote a little something for The Librarians. I could never hope to feel comfortable enough in the fandom to write more, but I'm proud of The Annex (200 words).

I also did some original work as well. But I'm iffy on that. I remembered why I stopped working on it the first time. I can't get the direction back, so I might scrap it all together.

I am a bit slow (as usual!) but these are the fics I'm most proud of for 2015:

Dreams - True Blood (Eric North/Jason Stackhouse, PG-13, suggestive, 500 words). Summary: Jason finds himself thinking about Eric after that dream; spoilerish for S7.02.

I was quite proud of the way the slight vein of humour in this felt right for the characters; it's not always easy to get a handle on characters you don't write much, and this somehow worked well, even though it's relatively short.

It's What You Do - Torchwood (Jack/Ianto. PG-13, 300 words). Summary: Ianto always worries when Jack dies

Similarly, getting Jack and Ianto's relationship right isn't easy, but I feel like I managed it in this snippet.

Out of the Cold - How to Get Away With Murder (Connor/Oliver, PG-13, 500 words). Summary: Connor suffers from insomnia; he spends the time thinking about his relationship with Oliver

I wrote two short fics in this fandom - my first foray into HTGAWM - and felt most proud of this one; I loved that I managed to grasp something of Connor's attitude changes and his growing feelings for Oliver in this short piece.

Out of the Locker Room - Hawaii 5-0 (Steve/Danny/OMC, NC-17, 14459 words). Summary: Steve notices something different about Danny one day; where that leads them is an unexpected place; warning: threesome porn, jockstrap kink

Finally, I got something that had been sitting half-done for what seemed like years! It was also a nice bit of porn, with plenty of feeling, if I do say so myself! I kind of thought I'd lost my mojo with that, so it was nice to feel it came back enough to finish this one!

And I forgot to say: EVERYONE HAS DONE AWESOMELY! It's a great list, so everyone should be very proud of themselves! ;-)
