Self reccing meme

I realize the idea of moi, the queen of shameless self-promotion, doing a self-pimping meme is almost too much, but I was actually tagged by savemoony for the following:

Post a list of your top five favorite fics you've written, regardless of fandom or the reason you love them. This isn't about the BEST things you've written, but what you LOVE most. Then tag five other people to do the same.


Two obvious ones and then some wild cards.
#1- Wrap Party
My first Hugh & Bobby story. So much fun to write, especially because of the little frisson of naughtiness that goes along with writing something as controversial as RPS. I still love Hugh at the piano singing Noel Coward songs. Who wouldn't fall in love with him?

#2- Smooth Operator Falling in lust with Jools Siviter kept me going during some really bad times here at the Desk of Doom. Almost to the extent of telling myself I was working for MI6 undercover and Jools would show up soon to get me out of here. I watched "Traitors Gate" and "Rosebud Memoirs" obsessively and was emailing Beta Goddess Carol on a daily basis as we traded bits of Jools dialogue and back story and kinky concepts.

#3- Chills & Fever otherwise known as "The Angsty 80's songfic". House listens to an old mixtape and snarks at or about everybody. Second season angst, but nothing like what we've been through lately. And probably more about my taste in music than you want to know. (Although the next meme coming up is the "Favorite Songs by Letter" so you'll know even more.)

#4- It Don't Mean A Thing Proving that I can write a happy H/W ending. I like the end result but sitting through "Swing Kids" enough times to get it right was tough. Written for the H_W Fest.

#5- Put Out The Fire My first ever crossover. CSI-NY/House MD. Lindsay/Chase. It's one of those dreaded multi-parters I'm so into ranting about, but the parts are short. I really like the way I wrote Danny especially when tries to interrogate House with about the results you'd expect. I think my "kinky sex in Montana" stuff is hot. This was a fun story to write because I wasn't taking it too seriously and let myself have a good time with all the characters.

Tagging the following:
thinlysliced
havocs_roman
drunken_hedghog
girlie_girl_23
maryshelley
Because you're all fairly new to my flist and I'd like to know your work better.
