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.

You're welcome! :D :D :D Hope to see you participate either art OR fic, but NO PRESSURE!

Oh GOD, both of those are FANTASTIC! I missed the Spike/Fred one, but I totally recognized them! But, oh man, I feel like I've said this before, but I love your style! On DeviantArt, which one gets the best reception from ppl?

HAHA umm...overall, it'd be The Absence, a D/Hr fic I spent a lot of time on; I think a lot of my best writing went in there, and it had a plot. In D/G, I'd say my most recent, Naked-Eyed Viewing :P So while that I think is the D/G I'm most proud of, it's definitely not as well-received as some of my other fics have lucky enough to have been. I chose that one b/c although it's short, it had a point to it and the writing wasn't bad, whereas in other fics, it lacked a point, or had bad writing, or started out good then I got lazy or something and didn't quite pull it off to the end I hoped for :P
