That AO3 Stat Meme

This one is interesting, and I nabbed it from [ profile] flambeau. The idea is to list one's current top 10 (in terms of hits) stories on AO3 and check back annually to see what changes and how. I will henceforth mentally associate this meme with tax season, which can only improve the latter.


16,020 - Ach, des Knaben Augen (Inception, written January 2011)
15,526 - Let Not My Love Be Called Idolatry (Inception, written February 2011)
13,498 - How Not to Fly (SGA, written September 2010)
8,304 - Under the Steinway (Inception, written January 2011)
8,241 - Between the Notes (Inception, written February 2011)
8,015 - To Capture, Conquer, and Court (Inception, written December 2010)
7,565 - Whither Thou Goest (Inception, written February 2011)
7,428 - Fever Pitch (Inception, written January 2011)
7,382 - In Duty Homeward Shall We Fly (Inception, written February 2011)
7,138 - What Need (Inception, written January 2011)

It's not surprising to me that Steinway!verse takes up 60% of the top 10, though of course I think hit counts for some of the shorter fics in that verse are inflated hugely through their association with my #1, Ach des. I'm surprised by how wordy my titles are, especially as I'm recently on a "brevity is...wit" kick with summaries and titles. I adore that my ridic plotless wonder of a HS AU is #2, but I admit I'm more delighted that SGA made the list, as I only started posting to AO3 as my SGA days waned. I have a nagging doubt that I am going to write anything in the near future to top the popularity of Ach des Knaben Augen, but I guess that's the point of checking in annually -- to see if my expectations are met or not!

Right, I have now posted all my SGA fic (and Inception, which I have done as I write) on AO3. All that's left is the huge backlog of SV and the scattered handful of other fandoms I have written. I'll warn before I go on another binge though, so feel free to resubscribe if you had unsubscribed to avoid getting spammed.

It may be sheer lunacy to think it, but if anyone reading this is subscribed to me on AO3, you may wish to unsubscribe for the day -- I'm planning to spend a bit of time finally posting some of my older fic and you might be driven mad by the notifications. I will post again when I think I'm done for the day.


Poll time!

So I'm working towards posting my long-ass fic and I haven't posted anything quite this monumental for 6 years so I wanted to know what you young hip youthful types think when it comes to posting formats for long fic, and for fic in general.  Results will probably inform my decision of where/how to post said long-ass fic in the near future.  Uh, and the 'in parts' thing -- I do mean parts of a completed fic all at once, not installments -- so I'm not talking about posting a section a day or anything insane like that.  WHO DOES THAT, ANYWAY?  (*glares at young hip youthful self from 6 years ago*)[Poll #1618432]

Work Plus Good Things

It's sort of semi-chilly out today, and grey, which actually is good as it's encouraged me to start attacking the many work items that need to be executed in the next few days. I used to love back-to-school season but it's less fun when you're on the other side and it kind of comes and makes you sad about so much prep work. Anyway... [/whining]

Things that are of the good:

1) I have an AO3 invite. I've just barely started using the site myself but so far I like it! Send me a PM if you want my invite.

2) There is ongoing hilarity in the comments of my latest fic. Oh, fandom (and fen) how I've missed you all. ([personal profile] siria and [personal profile] sheafrotherdon are killing me with the funny, especially.)

3) My massive new fic is into second beta's hands. And my first beta -- oh, how I love her! For she has made me turn my somewhat lazy-ass storytelling into something quite a bit better. \o/

4) My niece (2.5 yrs old) told me a story yesterday, that literally went like this:

Her: "I went poop onna train. And dere was yotsa yotsa trains. So many trains! And I ride onna trains!"

And I said, confused, "And you pooped on them?"

And she was all, "NO. I RIDE ONNA TRAINS."  Like I was the crazy one.
