2016 BRAG BOOK!

2016 was ULTRA MEGA AWESOME here at 1MW

So I'm back again to celebrate 2016, if I dare say WE ROCKED IT!

So here is your chance to gloat and share you favourite things that you wrote/made in 2016!

This is gonna work the same way as I did last year as that worked quite well!

I thought I would start us off with my favourite thing I wrote in 2016:
Truth Within The Lies (Man from UNCLE, Illya/Napoleon) - http://archiveofourown.org/works/6437605
My Small Fandom Big Bag for this year grew out of a tiny oneshot I wrote from a prompt and was so much fun to write!

And my best recieved fic was one of the first things I ever wrote for Star Wars. Finn, Poe and Rey steamrollered into my writing and produced this:
Belongings (Star Wars The Force Awakens, Finn/Poe) - http://archiveofourown.org/works/5679475


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 2016!!

Also as I did last year: I will also be offering rewards to those who contribute to help with the effort for 2017: 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!

I haven't done nearly enough words to be really proud of 2016, but I am proud of the last Pool Party fic I did, which was in the Shadowhunters fandom: Beyond the Perimeters; a Magnus/Alec story about Alec's first time. I felt like I got their voices fairly well how they are, and I got a couple of nice compliments too, as well as a decent amount of kudos!

I'm also pretty proud of this icon:



I loved how I managed to get the red of the arrow quills to pop and the text worked really well too. (Also Shadowhunters, also the very pretty Alec *sigh*

All words are good no matter how small the number might be :)
I am so far behind with Shadowhunters atm, I really need to get back into watching it.

What would you like as your reward?

2016 was my first year with 1MW, and it was a blast! I didn't participate in nearly as many events and challenges as I wanted to, but it was very encouraging to see all the activity and support. I didn't quite make my word count goal, but I got closer than I expected :)

I'm most proud of The Tempest, a Holmes/Watson (ACD books 'verse) fic. At 3K, it's the longest piece I've written in the fandom so far, and I think it turned out pretty well.

My favorite is probably The Spindle, a Starsky and Hutch ficlet, mostly because I still can't believe I wrote a fic about a toilet paper spindle.

Yay for new people. It is wonderful to get involved even if it wasn't to the level you would have hoped! Here's to hitting that word count this year.

That all sounds so awesome, sometimes the weirdest things spark the longest fics!

Who'd'a thunk a toilet paper spindle could feature in fic so prominently? You did AWESOME! ;-)

It was a pretty decent year for me. I didn't write as many McDanno stories as in years past, but most of the ones I did write either made me laugh or had some feels to them. And I actually found a bit of a footing in another fandom, with a bunch of Marvey stories - nice to get some readers and comments in a fandom; I've found most are *not* as great as the H50 group is/was about supporting writers with a comment.

I might be proudest of this fic - which absolutely got the fewest hits of them all, lol. But it feels to me like an actual, complete short story and there's something about it I like.

Interlude in the Key of Autumn
Rating: T
Pairing: Bruce Banner/Pepper Potts

YOU DID SO VERY WONDERFUL LAST YEAR!!! SO VERY VERY! You impressed me immensely all year long!



I didn't have a large number of titles in 2016, although I'm not upset about my word count. Which means that my fic is getting bigger so that's a goal achieved. :)

I did Stay? which is a DC Young Justice Birdflash fic that is NOT at all happy. And it makes me smile, oddly, that I was able to wrench it out. Done for last year's 5+1 challenge.

The other one that I actually love to re-read myself is Married to Bobert K Flumadiddle. Fluffy and fun, Avenger with Guardians of the Galazy. Hawkeye/Peter Quill.

I am so very proud of you, as always! And we achieved Hawaii this year, so while not words, it was HUGE!!! ;-)

Aww shucks, thank you darling!

Well done on making your fics longer!

I've just finished Young Justice (sobs) so will definitely give that a read!

What would you like as your reward?

P.S - Love the icon!

A little late with these but ...

A bit of a pool party fic as it was a crossover with a new fandom for me (Hawaii Five-0):
Stranger in an Airport Bar (Stargate SG-1/Hawaii Five-0 crossover)

And one that was in my comfort zone:
Paradise Rescue (Stargate SG-1) - what happens when Jack and Maybourne are rescued at the end of the season 6 episode Paradise Lost.
