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.

Actually! My first Twinkle fanart was the one of Ginny/Draco. It was all swirly and her hair was up in his face. :3

There's that one of Draco in a dove gray/white suit, kind of in profile, and he looks SO GOOD in it :P
HAHAHA, they always put poor Tommy F's head on some hot model's body (or Beckham's). But I'm still trying to figure out if my icon is a manip or not. The post that she's in looks like a Drew Barrrymore editorial in Vogue, but something's off about it.

YES I KNOW THAT ONE! I was already into D/G then and when I found out she did D/G fanart I was super excited :D I LOVE her Christmas D/G ones the best, either this or this one.

YEAH! And in the beginning, it would really trip me out because I'd go frantic trying to find the nonexistent photoshoot :D I think it's DEF Emma Watson, but I feel like if it weren't a manip and her own photoshoot, we might've seen other photos and fanarty stuff of it a lot more?
