Confession Part 1
It's the most wonderful time of the year: Stats time! /is a big old stats geek/

Numb3rs may be off the air, but I'm still a big fan of my numbers. Hehehe

I hadn't planned on more than 100 Numb3rs fic last year or this year, but when I saw I was in the 90s I figured why not? 100 would have been neat and tidy, but between N100 and a few gift fic I wanted to get out the closest nice number I could hit was 105. So I set out to hit 105 by publishing my red-headed stepchild of a fic Mile Mountain Road on the 30th only to realize after the fact that my count was off because I had a few fic (like Sin) that used more than one post. While I count each fic post in my monthly reviews, on my annuals I count each story. So now I'm left with an uncomfortable 101 instead of 100. Grr. Argh.

Numb3rs Fic Published Over the Years:
25 in 2005
150 in 2006
150 in 2007
135 in 2008
1 Vice (2007/2008)
110 in 2009
101 in 2010
Total N3 fic = 672

Partial/Unedited Unpublished Fic Over the Years:

EOY 2008: 35 Unpublished: 24 Partial 11 Unedited
EOY 2009: 19 Unpublished: 14 Partial 5 Unedited
EOY 2010: 21 Unpublished: 7 Partial 14 Unedited

I'm always glad to have less partials, but this year (in my mind anyway) I'm kind of down to 5 since 2 of my 7 partials are my NaNoWriMo novels from this and last year - works that are expected to take a long time to finish since they tend to run about 100K each. The high number of Unedited (fic that have at least a first draft done if not ready to post) is due partially to me not being able to publish my Yuletide fic before the end of the year and, in 2010 at least, I held the entire Vanishing Act Series in the White Collar fandom for rewrites because I wasn't happy with the first installment in the six fic long series. /headdesk/ Because of my NaNo novel being partial I didn't manage a 100% completion rate for Numb3rs fic in 2010, but with only 1 partial out of the 99 I started? Not bad. (Only I hate that it's 99 and not 100. /grumbles over 99 and 101/) I did manage a 100% completion rate for Non-Numb3rs fic and crossovers (traditionally very hard for me to finish), so overall good proof that ficfinishing has made a difference.

The final numbers for 2010 are as follows:

Published Fic:
Numb3rs - 101
Supernatural - 4
Heroes - 1
Criminal Minds - 2
The Unit - 1
Psych - 2
Bones - 1
Miracles - 3
Brimstone - 1
Cupid - 1
Blood Ties - 1
Primeval - 1
Doctor Who - 1
Torchwood - 2
Firefly - 1
Burn Notice - 1
Dollhouse - 1
Leverage - 1
The Mentalist - 1
Castle - 3
White Collar - 28
Lie to Me - 1
Covert Affairs - 1
Crossovers - 6 (2 M/SPN, 1 N3/Lev, 1 N3/WC, 1 TW/WC, 1 WC/Unit)
Total - 166

(11 less than last year: 2009 had 177. 2009 had 18 less than 2008's 195.)

Note: I don't include crossovers in my counts of what I call 'straight up' fandom fic.

I now have fic published in 23 fandoms: Numb3rs, Supernatural, Heroes, Criminal Minds, The Unit, Psych, Bones, Miracles, Brimstone, Cupid, Blood Ties, Primeval, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Firefly, Burn Notice, Dollhouse, Leverage, The Mentalist, Castle, White Collar, Lie to Me and Covert Affairs. The last three on that list were added in 2010.

Please note that all fic is tagged and (will hopefully soon be) memoried for convenience. (I'm a few months behind on the memories portion, but tags are always in use.)

Please read Confession Part 2 for more comments.

Confession Part 2
So I managed to continue ficcing despite going back to college full time (12 units in the spring, 5 in the summer and a scary 17 in the fall), though most of my output was drabbles. I made a nice dent in my partial fic list, but I failed to continue many of the series I'd hoped to write new installments for in 2010. I was rather appalled to realize it had been over a year since I'd written any SHH, about a year and a half since U is for Undercover/Don Diego and two years since Last Call. /gapes/ Why are you people not kicking me in the arse for this? /marvels/ Oh yeah, college full time. /headdesk/ Hey, at least I didn't abandon any of my fandoms! Every single fandom I write got at least one fic written this year. /is proud/

Even though I barely used any betas this year I still want to say publicly how much I appreciate each of you for all you've done for me. Your support and patience are a gift and I am eternally grateful for all that you give me. Same with my First Readers - you were there to cheer when I needed you and I thank you so much for your enthusiasm.

To the lovely people on my F-list who are still with me despite a pretty serious withdrawal from the world of LJ: I am sorry I've been out of touch with your lives, not taking the time to read or comment on your posts, but I am still here and I do still care. The fact that you guys are still happy to see me when I raise my head is proof I don't deserve you as friends, but I'm ever grateful for those of you who have stuck with me and been patience with me being made of fail as a friend. Thank you for being such good people.

Thank you as well to all the people who read my fic: regulars, passers-by and lurkers. I may write it for myself, but it means a great deal to me that you find my stories worthy of your time. I welcome you all to leave a comment, even just one. I am always happy to greet those who delurk and you may find that interaction is far more engaging than just sitting back and watching. The world is full of opportunities to reach out: try it.

The vast majority of my output this year is drabbles and flashfic, so for those of you who like longer fic I'm including short lists below of some of my rare longer pieces from 2010.

Longer Fic:

Numb3rs: Sin, Ashes Remain, Approaching Infinity, Bravo, Mile Mountain Road, Leathers (This list in order by size.)

Psych: A Peculiar State of Affairs

White Collar: Taster's Choice, Masquerade and Minuet

(Yes, a scary scarcity of fic over 2K! /hides/ /is not happy/)

A note about Viceworld and Virtue:
Homicide - the first novel in the Viceworld universe - did not come out in 2010 as planned. I did publish the first novella in the Sin spin off series, which will eventually be a three novella trilogy vs a ten novel series for Vice. I have the end of Homicide to write and most of Larceny so it is possible that 2011 will have two Vice novels in it, but we'll see how ornery Larceny winds up being. It is the introduction of Billy Cooper to the universe so at least it will be fun in that regard!
