Drabble-a-Day 2011 September Statistics

Things got a little weird this month. I wanted to do something for the dw100 prompt of "Colour," so I asked my F-list for suggestions, and you guys came through way better than I'd expected. Then I got kind of obsessive-compulsive about doing all of them. Hence some really interesting drabbles that I would never have written otherwise, but also some very odd statistics. And the possibility that I might not want to write any more Doctor Who drabbles, at least for a while.

Another reminder: The prompt post is still open, and I'm definitely looking for new challenges, specifically fandoms that haven't turned up yet or RPS/RPF pairings that don't get much love.

Total fics: 30
Number of Fandoms: 12 (including one crossover)

Fandoms by numbers of fic

Doctor Who-17
House MD-2
White Collar-1
Forever Knight-1
A Team-1
Knots Landing-!
Life on Mars 1

Types of stories by number of fic. (I'll admit that some of the categories are iffy, but it's my challenge so I get to make the final call.)
Gen-14 (most of the Doctor Who fics turned out to lean that way)

Pairings/OT3 with the most fic-Jack, John, Alonso with 2

Crackiest thing I wrote this month: Let Them Talk-House MD, House meets Mr. Spock. Kind of.

Least popular-Actually pretty much everything came up with a few comments this month, so that was very gratifying.

Most popular-by comments. Right Where It Belongs Some Jack & Rex, post-Miracle Day fic. That definitely hit a chord, which made me very happy. Because it validates that 1. Miracle Day IS and WAS Torchwood, and 2. People get that real!Jack is alive and well, and he and Rex are going to have some fun together.
fatuous lunatic

Medical paranoia seeping in

Dull ache. Lower right abdomen. Intermittent and more throbby than sharp, but definitely painful. Started yesterday, continued until I fell asleep. I thought it was gone this morning, but it has just reappeared. No fever, so probably not appendix related.

Pimp Post

I'm making some progress through my "To Read" list, even if said progress mostly consists of pulling up a link and asking myself whatever made me think I wanted to read that in the first place.

At one point, I was seriously considering deleting the whole thing and just walking away, but I can't do that. There are still fics I want to read, or at least give a try to. So I will go on, and will continue to bring worthy items to your attention.

Doctor Who/Torchwood

Where Ten Is The Worst by azn_jack_fiend.
YAY! Always happy to see more Miracle Day fic. This is a sad little ficlet that really captures the poignancy of those two.

I Just Don't Want To by veritas6_5
Jack & Gwen.
Fluffy cuteness


Methuselahs by prochytes
Face of Boe
Angsty and tricksy.



Spooks/James Bond crossover

It's a parody, it's a Meta, it's seriously taking the piss out of the fandom. Special snarky appearance by the one and only Jools Siviter. Check it out.



Our good friend, the lovely proseac1 has undertaken the mammoth project of re-watching all of NCIS from the beginning, in order and writing a drabble for each episode each day. She's well into the 3rd season now and kicking all sorts of butt.

The tag is HERE!. Take a look. Find a favorite episode and see what she's done with it.


Star Trek Reboot RPS AU

A Gesture of Love: (or Project: Woo Rachel) by babykid528

Chris Pine/Zach Quinto (with supporting parts for the other cast members.)

You heard me folks. It's one of the most ambitious projects I've seen a fanficcer attempt and pull of. World-building on the grand scale. Lots of humor as well as pain and the hot, smutty finale that truly pays it off.
