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!
