In odd moments I'm expanding a thousand-word original short I did some time back into a novel(Sir)

and here's a bit of it:

snippet )
I didn't even know I could find out which fics of mine had most hits on AO3 until this meme and when I did, I was like HOW MANY HITS? WOW.

Though of course, a hit can mean someone reading one paragraph and thinking, what is this dreck, run away, run away. Comparing hits to kudos to get a ratio might be more useful.

So, two fandoms, Hawaii Five-o and Suits, and it's just one series in the Suits fandom. Hmm.

Most popular in order of hits:

1. Search and Rescue Hawaii Five-o/The Sentinel 8260 hits, 128 kudos. 64.5 ratio

2. Knot a Problem Suits 7843 hits, 100 Kudos Ratio 78.4

3. Paperwork (sequel to Knot a Problem) Hits 4076 Kudos 36 Ratio 113.2

4. Timekeeping (sequel to Knot a Problem) Hits 3510 Kudos 32 Ratio 109.68

5. Sleepwalking H 5-0 Hits 3375 Kudos 37 Ratio 91.21

6. Green and Red H5-0 Hits 3329 Kudos 58 Ratio 57.39

7. Daydreaming Hawaii Five-o (sequel to Sleepwalking)Hits 3021 Kudos 57 Ratio 53

8. Broken Words Hawaii Five-o Hits 2613 Kudos 26 Ratio 100.5

9. Spoken in a Whisper Hawaii Five-o Hits 2221 Kudos 65 Ratio 34.16

10. Barred Hawaii Five-o Hits 2115 Kudos 42 Ratio 50.35

So in order of best ratio of kudos to hits, the most popular to least looks like this, original position in brackets:

1 (9) Spoken in a Whisper Ratio 34.16
2 (10) Barred Ratio 50.35
3 (7) Daydreaming Ratio 53
4 (6) Green and Red Ratio 57.39
5 (1) Search and Rescue Ratio 64.5
6 (2) Knot a Problem Suits Ratio 78.4
7 (5) Sleepwalking Ratio 91.21
8 (8) Broken Words Ratio 100.5
9 (4) Timekeeping Ratio 109.68
10 (3) Paperwork Ratio 113.2

And that was completely pointless and the stats have probably changed as I did it and yet I couldn't stop myself from doing it.

Gakked from [personal profile] oddmonster

Each Sunday, post six sentences from a writing project -- published, submitted, in progress, for your cat -- whatever.

A Psych fic I started and didn't finish (yet). This is how it begins.

"Let me get this straight," Shawn said. He pivoted on his heel to better show off his profile, with his nose not being all that was sticking out, and glared at Lassie. "I'm offering you this body, good time guaranteed, and you're drawing up a list of rules for me to sign first?"

"I most certainly am," Lassiter replied, staring not at the promising bulge in Shawn's shorts but at Shawn's face. "I know you, Spencer. You like wriggle room. The only place I want you wriggling is in my bed."
This was a fun meme from [profile] princessofg.

Five Ways You Know I Wrote It:

1. Someone gets spanked (totally not gratuitous, completely demanded by the plot, honest! :-)), tied up, or slammed against a wall.

2. It's shorter than you want it to be.

3. There's a phrase or two in there that you just know I've used before and probably the word 'scarlet', definitely a 'whimpered'.

4. It's slash. Okay, maybe that's cheating...

4a. There's a lot of fighting and/or talking before the sex, during the sex, maybe not afer the sex because I've worn them out.

5. It starts off one place and ends somewhere totally different and you can't quite spot the place where I lost control but you know it happened and the characters are snickering heartlessly at me.

[personal profile] rubywisp tagged me and I can't say no to Ruby.

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest (unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1).
6. Tag five people.(umm, I don't do this bit usually)

It's my book amazingly, since Lauren strews books around the house like confetti.

Patricia Wentworth The Girl in the Cellar, the last and IMO weakest of the Miss Silver books.

"Yes -- yes, I can see that. But she'll need money, Will you see that she has what she wants? I'll give you a cheque. Will fifty pounds be all right?"

"Yes, Mr. Fancourt."

"Couldn't you tell me where she is?"

She smiled.

"I think it will be better if I do not."

You're supposed to post a sentence or two from your WiPs.

I don't have many, but okay. I opened them at random and grabbed a sentence.

Wintergreen, the sequel to Wild Raspberries, an original novel of mine due to be published in September:

"Easy, boy," Tyler murmured, his hands making soothing passes over Dan's back. "We're not going anywhere today."

Point of Contact sequel which will see the light of day eventually, I swear:

The muted bustle of the shift change going on in the main office faded and all that Jim could hear was the sound of their lips meeting and the bitten-off gasp from Blair as Jim's hand cupped his ass. "Still a little tender, are we?" Jim whispered against Blair's hair, nuzzling through it to capture Blair's earlobe between his teeth.

Following by Example (Jim/Blair destined for the next My Mongoose)

"Do you think Simon's hot?" Blair asked casually, timing the question so precisely to match with the about to be swallowed mouthful of juice that was sloshing around Jim's teeth (clashing badly with the toothpaste) that Jim was already on guard before he finished speaking.

and finally, a long piece of Simon meta I'm working on for [ profile] ts_allstars:

A measure of the trust that Jim has in his captain and friend is that during the show Simon is the only person to whom the Sentinel secret is revealed willingly.


And now I'd better get back to one of them, in between tidying as my mum arrives from the UK tomorrow for a three-week visit.

How to choose? Maybe go for a classic method.

Dip, dip, sky blue, which one...not you, as we used to sing in the playground.

Thank you for all the lovely words you all posted on the 'describe me in one word' meme ::smooches::

I'm going to cheat and respond with a single post (being behind on the novel word count by 852 words is making me panic, though I know that's nothing. Nothing! I can easily make it up! ::quivers::). I've been commenting on other people's posts but this is what I think of when I think of my f-list as a whole:

amusing, brilliant, chatty, dedicated, eloquent, fascinating, generous, heartwarming, intelligent, joyous, kind, lively, mordant, necessary, open-minded, pettable, quixotic, readers, searchers, turbulent, understanding, vehement, wise, x-rated, young at heart, zest-filled.

Love you all ::hugs::

[ profile] mahaliem has a cool meme in her LJ here.

I contributed with my take on The Sentinel:

The Sentinel: little guppy, spirits merging, super senses, gun dropping, wall slamming.

Go play; it's fun :-)

I'm seeing a meme on my f-list:

What, if you read my fic, is/are the characteristic(s) that stand(s) out the most?

I can answer that one myself.

The way everyone, oddly, seems to need a spanking from time to time ;-))

I've seen this and got intrigued. You post the first line of your last 25 fics and see if there's a pattern.


first lines )

Easy to see that I often start with either a name or 'He/Her' as the first word; 12 out of 25.

Only three begin with dialog.

At least nine, maybe more, are in present tense.

I rarely write first person.

Length varies.

Okay, that was... well, not useful, but entertaining.

With 40 replies in the time it took to prise E off the computer and send her up the hills to Bedfordshire, I'm going to break my usual habit and not reply individually, but I am having an absolute blast looking at all the icons on the post here

Some of them are new to me, some are making me float in a sea of nostalgia, some are making me grin or go mmm-mmm or say 'awww'.

Thank you for playing!

You know, when I first got here, I was all icons? Huh? Why? What's the point, why do you want more? Ten is enough for anyone!

My, how times do change ::pets 117 icons lovingly (craves more)::
I invented a meme. Wow, I never do that...but I did today :-)

Very simple:

Comment with your oldest icon.

You know; the one that stays with you even when it's five fandoms out of date because it sums a character up perfectly, or it reminds you of something, or it's just so damn useful. The one you'll never delete no matter what.

This one on this post is my oldest and I can't see it ever going off my user pics. [ profile] harmonyfb made it for me many, many years ago when I hadn't long been on LJ and I love it and they can carve it on my grave (underneath 'a drabble is one hundred words, not counting title').

I'm making good progress on the Blair orgasm fic for Moonridge so I thought I'd do a meme that's floating around. I forget the actual wording so this might be a slight variant on a theme.

Ask me a question about any of my fan fics. Want to know what happened before, during, after the fic or a certain scene? Want a peek five years down the road? Still can't wrap your head around a plot twist, a line of dialogue, or a position the characters got themselves into, and want to know just how many wine gums I'd had when I wrote it, because come on, it makes no freaking sense?

Anything that's been bugging you. Ask me.

And I will give you a full, frank answer or invent one if I don't have a clue.
This one looks like fun...

If you had me under your command and could make me write anything, what would you love to see me write? I'm not actually going to write any of these (unless something strikes me), but I am curious.

Fannish, original, any pairing or group...

Which I just made up and if no one else plays I will bow my head and never meme originate again ::practises sad quiver::

It's simple! It's easy! It made me grin and took no time at all!

Describe something, anything (I went for smut which should surprise no one) in 26 words, in alphabetical order. Post them here, on your own LJ, nowhere at all because you think it's a sucky meme.

Whatever as Faith would say....

Ass. Bare. Cleft. Deep. Enticing. Finger. Going. Hard. In. Just. Knuckle. Less. More. Now. Open. Please. Quick. Right. Stop. There. Uh. Very. Whimper. X-rated. Yes. Zenith.

ETA There's a list of all those who played here. If I've missed you off, just yell :-)
