What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January?
Bangtan Sonyeondan and Winner tbh. VIXX was growing on me, and i was already writing for the EXO fandom.
What's your own favorite story of the year?
I never like my own stories but maybe 'Till We See the Sun and With You
Did you take any writing risks this year? What did you learn from them?
Writing threesomes, I think. And also signing up for fic fests for groups I really don't know (like winner). I tell myself I never should but I still do. This confirmed that I write the best under pressure.
Do you have any fanfic or profic goals for the new year?
I want to write more, and finish more wips.
i have like 400 wips. I'd like to write more longfics also and do more world building.

From my past year of writing, what was…
My best story of this year:
Well I don't like my own fics but maybe 'Till We See the Sun?
My most popular story of this year:
Definitely Watch Us Until We Blur.
Most fun story to write:
Living Louder, as it was my first girl!fic ever.
Story with the single sexiest moment:
Probably Color Me With Your Color or Nine in the Afternoon
Most "holy crap, that's wrong, even for you" story:
Uuuuuuuuuh, I don't think I have any of those?
Story that shifted my own perceptions of the characters:
Watch Us Until We Blur, I think. I started to grow to like to write Jongdae a lot more after that.
Hardest story to write:
It wasn't hard to write, but compared to my other stories Just Another Manic Monday because I don't really ship Krisho.
Living Louder, I never thought I'd write girlfic.
Most unintentionally telling story:
At the Top of My Lungs, as it grew longer than I intended?
Favorite Opening Lines / Introductions:
Junmyeon keeps an eye on his father as he gets out of his seat, soundlessly, like a cat. They're outside, for once, celebrating his older brother's twentieth name day, by inviting everyone and anyone that was something of even remotedly importance in Westeros. from Birth of a Song.
Usually, they all gather during the full moon. Even as the times have changed and they’re integrated with regular humans now, this tradition is one they still hold dear. It’s not mandatory – your wolf does not go berserk if you don’t join the Pack on the full moon nor is no one going to blame you for staying at home. One of the main reasons why they still do it after so long is because it brings the pack closer. Despite living scattered across the city, the runs during the full moon helps the pack stay close and boosts the relationship bonds. The full moon run is also used for initiating and introducing new pack members, should there be any. from Before the Sun Comes Up
His body hums. The earth is soft under his paws as he sprints effortlessly through the forest. It's midnight. A darkness has settled in the woods, making it almost impossible to see the hidden roots and rocks. The moon is illuminating his path, shining through leaves and branches. Not that Jongdae needs it. It could be as dark as the deepest pits of hell and he'd still be able to see where he's running. from Watch Us Until We Blur.
Favorite Closing Lines:
“Me too,” Hongbin whispers softly, lips soft as he kisses Wonshik, chaste, warm, perfect. from At the Top of My Lungs.
Seokjin is home. from With You.
Hakyeon lets himself fall into a slumber, dreaming of a tomorrow with pancakes, kisses and Taekwoon. from Ignite Your Bones.
Favorite 5 Line(s) from Anywhere:
“It’s like magic!” Seokjin exclaims, gushing about the snow and how it looks like “A real, live Christmas card, Yoongi!” from When I'm in Love.
"What weird kink are you into now, Minseok hyung?" Yixing asks, grin widening when Minseok doesn't immediately protest. from 'Till We See the Sun.
"You push me around, and you keep kissing other girls. Kim Minchae don't you love me?" Junmi hears Lu Hua pout as Minchae laughs, probably helping her up from the floor. from Living Louder.
“I just told you,” Jaehwan whines, hands poking Hakyeon’s sides until he pays attention. “Make him a sexual favors coupon book!” from Remember, Remember the 11th of November.
“Sanghyuk let me in,” Hakyeon murmurs against the side of Taekwoon’s neck. “I bribed him with chicken and a pack of cigarettes.” from I'll Go for You.
Top 5 Scenes from Anywhere You Would Choose to Have Illustrated:
Minseok's got a towel around his hips, another one over his head, which shields him some from the coolness of the room. He lets out a soft yelp when Taekwoon stands in front of him, sweatpants covering his long legs, chest bare as he reaches out to rub Minseok's hair through the terry cloth of the navy towel.
They're standing close, maybe too close, but Minseok doesn't mind, wraps his arms around Taekwoon's bare waist, pressing his face into warm, vanilla scented skin. Above him, Taekwoon chuckles. from Color Me With Your Color.
Seungyoon sits on the floor of his apartment, feet curled up under his body, his guitar in his lap. He’s got paper scattered on a small, low table in front of him. Seungyoon hums softly under his breath, pen in his hand scribbling down notes and makeshift lyrics before he forgets. Next to his notes there are a cup of hot, steaming coffee in a mug shaped and painted like a bumblebee. from Before the Sun Comes Up.
It feels like he is on the verge of fainting when he rounds the corner to the kitchen. Messy, brown hair, broad shoulders and a pink apron are the first things Yoongi’s eyes notices. A soft, white t-shirt. Gray sweatpants. Bare feet in slippers. from With You.
In Junmyeon’s absence, Kyungsoo has taken the chance to lie down on the tiny sofa, head propped up on the armrest, Sehun placed safely on his chest, Kyungsoo holding him safely in place; one hand under his butt and one resting gently on top of his back.
They’re both asleep. from No Worries.
Yoongi knows he should be terrified, counting his blessings, but he finds that extremely difficult when Seokjin is standing in the doorframe, wearing a fluffy, pink sweater. The messiness of his brown hair; stands poking out everywhere, as well as the pink tint in his cheeks don’t help at all. Seokjin looks absolutely adorable, like cotton candy and Yoongi has to fight the urge to coo at him. Something tells him that wouldn’t help his situation at all. from Love, Love, Love.
New year's resolutions:
- Join fewer but more important (to me) exchanges.
- Write more.
- Finish more shit (jfc).
