What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January? I didn't write anything super out of the ordinary...I have some Red Velvet fics in the works, but they're not counted in my fandom total b/c I didn't finish any this year. And I wrote a kind of action fic for the baektobaek exchange? Which is super out of my comfort zone.
What's your own favorite story of the year? The girl!SuBaek I wrote for the nabisonyeo exchange, That's How It Works (That's How You Get the Girl). Is it bad that I want to add 2 honorable mentions? Probably. OTL I just feel like I finally got my mojo back in the second half of this year that I haven't had since...2012? So! Honorable mentions: (I wanna know how you taste) Now that you keep me warm, Can I Make It Any More Obvious?.
Did you take any writing risks this year? What did you learn from them? Erm...wow. I feel very un-risky right now. I guess the biggest change was just how much more longfic I've been writing. And I learned that I can legit write sizable pieces and it doesn't have to be like pulling teeth.
Do you have any fanfic or profic goals for the new year? I want to write an original novel! We'll...see how that goes. lol.

From my past year of writing, what was…
My best story of this year: That's How It Works (That's How You Get the Girl)
My most popular story of this year: Kris' Boobs and Hit Me With Your Hurricane and Sun-kissed skin so hot we'll melt your popcicle. (They're all about the same comments wise.)
Most fun story to write: (I wanna know how you taste) Now that you keep me warm
This was just one of those stories that fell out of my brain so easily.
Story with the single sexiest moment: Too Dirty To Clean My Act Up
Most "holy crap, that's wrong, even for you" story: Hmm...no watersports this year so...I don't know. Nothing was that crazy. Maybe the exhibitionism in Your Attention, Please.
Story that shifted my own perceptions of the characters: Well, in That's How It Works (That's How You Get the Girl), I learned that girl!Joonmyun isn't always an angel. I ended up being so much more annoyed with her than I thought I would XD
I also sold myself on ChenHun with Can I Make It Any More Obvious?.
Hardest story to write: (you can live without me) but when we come together, I know we’re better because the premise was not like what I usually write. And also because I was in such a femslash mode during the second half of the year, so I was like "Dicks? What are these?" O_O
Biggest surprise: het!ChanTao are the most disgusting. They are so cute and cheesy. I'd hate them if I knew them. Get out.
Most unintentionally telling story: I guess (I wanna know how you taste) Now that you keep me warm because I included some inspiration from my own coming out?
Favorite Opening Lines / Introductions:
“You want to what?” Baekhyun asked, eying Chanyeol judgmentally even as she pulled back from where her face had been pressed into Chanyeol’s cleavage. (Too Dirty To Clean My Act Up)
“Doesn't he have nice wrists?” Zitao marveled dreamily, staring across campus during their lunch break at the object of her affections- a junior named Park Chanyeol who was taller than Zitao and played the guitar. And had nice wrists. (I Knew It Was You All Along)
Favorite Closing Lines:
Dating Tao for real...with the possibility of hate fucking.
Baekhyun could definitely work with that. ((you can live without me) but when we come together, I know we’re better)
"If you ever call me pretty again, I'll bite your dick off," he promised, sounding more tired and less threatening than he'd meant to. But the sentiment was the same.
Kyungsoo chuckled against his shoulder, body curling around his comfortably, and said, "We'll see." (We Both Have Our Rabid Hearts, Feral From The Very Start)
Favorite 5 Line(s) from Anywhere:
I seriously can't answer this truly unless I read through everything I'e written this year, so this is just off the top of my head.
“No,” Baekhyun chided, “Nope. No more crying. You are going to get snot all over everything in my room, Joonmyun. I swear to god.”
(That's How It Works (That's How You Get the Girl))
“Baekhyun!” Chanyeol exclaimed, slapping a large hand over Baekhyun’s mouth- horrified. She kept it there until Baekhyun, apparently, licked her palm, and then she took her hand back with a grimace.
Baekhyun cackled as Chanyeol wiped her hand on her jeans in disgust before trying to grab Baekhyun’s hand with the threat to lick her back.
“Go to volleyball, you freak!” Baekhyun laughed breathlessly, darting away and dancing out of Chanyeol’s reach.
(That's How It Works (That's How You Get the Girl)) [just b/c I enjoy the thought of Chanyeol thinking the most effective form of revenge is to lick someone back ><]
Baekhyun rolled her eyes, “You want to rub off against my pelvis?”
“You’re the one who’s always saying how amazing your pelvis is!” Chanyeol defended.
“That wasn’t an invitation to put your pussy on it!”
(Too Dirty To Clean My Act Up)
Tao looked puzzled.
Baekhyun, however, was not.
“Oh!” she exclaimed, raising her hand like she was perhaps on a trivia game show, “Exhibitionism kink!”
Tao looked back at Chanyeol and when the older boy only flushed darker and refused to meet his eyes, his lips pulled up in a smirk.
“That’s interesting,” he observed and Chanyeol made a sound like a dying giraffe.
“Hi,” Jongin replied, still seeming so confused as to why Lu Han was talking to her, which was, in turn, perplexing to Lu Han who knew she had the subtly of a neon sign.
(Can I Make It Any More Obvious?)
Those are, I'm sure, not actually my top 5 lines (sets of lines...), but those are what I thought of without re-reading all the things.
Top 5 Scenes from Anywhere You Would Choose to Have Illustrated:
- Homecoming dress shopping from That's How It Works (That's How You Get the Girl).
- Tao trying to seduce Kyungsoo while she eats dinner from Tell Me That You Want Me (I'll Stay).
- Tao giving Chanyeol a lap dance in Sun-kissed skin so hot we'll melt your popcicle.
- Skater girls Lu Han and Jongdae perving on Jongin and Sehun's cheer practice from Can I Make It Any More Obvious?.
- KaiBaek snuggling in bed from (I wanna know how you taste) Now that you keep me warm.
New year's resolutions: Write an original novel. Finish the shit I have started.
