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.

Holy shitters! You must have like, 12 hands!

I don't know what pic ppl who like my art enjoy most, but I feel that the D/Hr watchers probably enjoy the D/Hr pieces the most, particularly those that are romantic and shippy.

I enjoy this one the most. I think that'll change though, it's sorta just a default fav right now b/c I haven't finished any sketches of crap in the last couple months. MONTHS! :( But I like it b/c it's silly and loldramatic, and I do enjoy the goggles and stone bg. I feel it's got more to it than other things I've done, I like the composition.

And then she told me she somehow recovered it.

BETTEH HAXED UR COMPUTER! XD

HAHAHA That, or that many fingers :D UH so I thought my 112 was not bad. Then B came out with 120. And I was like :OOO And then when my sister came home I made her take it. Her first try: 120. Second try: 136. Third try: 137. WOT THE.

the D/Hr watchers probably enjoy the D/Hr pieces the most, particularly those that are romantic and shippy.
Yeah, I can see that! I feel like most D/G readers, including myself, prefer the fluffier, romantic fics. Because overall, HAPPY, HUMOROUS > dark, sad, I guess.

I dunno how she did it! But twice she saved it from being totally wiped out, HAHA.

Me too! There are cases where I have enjoyed them, and could probably enjoy them in the future, but generally I don't like dark-fic.

Save things in your gmail! That's always a safer bet.
