question

Saw this from moreteadk and decided to take the test. I was averaging 97-98 wpm listening to Sarah McLachlan, but then my iTunes random hit Gym Class Heroes's "The Queen and I" and I hit my high of:

Lesson: music that pumps you up also hypes up your fingers!

All my D/G people are following round 4 of dgficexchange, yes yes? Featuring layout by twinklepug, sign ups start in about a week!

So, also got a question for you: Which of your own fics/art are you most proud of? Follow-up: Which fic/art of yours do most readers like? Same fic, y/n? I was going to ask which one is your favorite, but that might not be the one you're most proud of :P (It isn't for me!) Feel free to link me!

I've been wondering this for a while. I have this theory that the one you're proud of isn't usually the one most people seem to like. Example: The Barest Hint of Lemon is the fic I'm still getting reviews for. But, for many reasons, it's not what I'd put up as my best work. It's not that I don't like it, it's just...not what I'm most proud of.

On a related note, without a doubt, my absolute WORST has to be this D/G I wrote in 2004 called "Love, Ginny." Oh my god. It was worse than some of the earlier BSB fics I wrote. Best thing ff.net ever did was wipe my account clean and destroy that fic. Except like a year later I found out streetscribbles saved it. And then her computer got wiped and I thought now it's truly gone. And then she told me she somehow recovered it. Love, Ginny: The Fic That Just Wouldn't Die. Morbid fascination compelled me to ask her to send me the fic, to see if it was as bad as I remembered. It was so much more than that, I cannot say. For a while, before she sent it to me, I was debating whether I should put it up as a "how far I've come" thing, but for the good of all, that thing will never be up for public viewing.

HAHAH SANDI. I would never want you to think less of me. And after reading that...you would. :P NO JOKE!

Oh, NICE! HAHA AW THANKS. It was fun READING! Do you feel it was also your most well-received one? If yes, you break my theory. If no, my theory lives on!

Whoa, sorry, Sandi, I totally lost track of this comment and meant to reply like days ago!

re: fic
Um, it's totally worse. No compare!

Oooh, cool, okay, you still fit the theory! HAHA stretching it a bit, but STILL! :P But I agree, I think in our early writings, we were so filled with ship love and it was all unvarnished and everything that it was more emotionally packed and our shippy hearts were really invested. Nowadays it's like, I'm much more careful w/ the characters and stuff, more conscious thought goes into it, rather than just this outpouring of ship love.
