Confession Part 1
Ah, I used to love my stats. Then I took Honors Stats in college and it made my head explode. /cradles head in hands/ Bah humbug!

Still, my end of year numbers are always interesting to me and I can't help but publish them even if no one gives a flying.

This year was harder than last as far as college went so I barely kept up on my drabble commitments at N100 and WC100. (I even had 10 units during the *summer*!) Most of the time I was late on WC100 and would have been late at N100 had I not been a mod and able to stave off mod posting on Mondays. ;-)

I'm sad it's not a nice clean number, but 71 is what I've got for the year in my primary fandom of Numb3rs. That's what I get for not doing my count until after the year's over. /sigh/

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
71 in 2011
Total N3 fic = 743

Partial/Unedited Unpublished Fic Over the Years:

EOY 2008: 35 Unpublished: 24 Partial 11 Unedited
EOY 2009: 19 Unpublished: 14 Partial 5 Unedited
EOY 2010: 21 Unpublished: 7 Partial 14 Unedited
EOY 2011: 15 Unpublished: 9 Partial 6 Unedited

This is going to sound weird coming from the mod of ficfinishing, but I'm actually glad I have more partials. I was so obsessed with finishing fic for a while (and I got my partials down to 5 including 2 NaNoWriMo novels) that I was avoiding starting new fic. I got into some new fandoms and started some longer fic so now I have projects to play with rather than an obsession with my tracking documents. FWIW, here's what's partial (so people can see what's coming):

Numb3rs Fic
Mi Corazon (The third in the Don Diego/U is for Undercover Trilogy)
Eyes (A Charlie stalker fic)
Time Away (The sequel to Honey and Roses)
Homicide (Book 1 of Viceworld)
Larceny (Book 2 of Viceworld)
+ My first ever Emma fic, which may never see the light of day

X-Men Fic
Last Night on Earth (Pre-Cuba Charles/Erik)
105 Degrees (Mansion era Charles/Erik)

The Fingers in the Pie (Bones/Criminal Minds case fic)

Unedited fic normally don't bother me too much since they are at least a finished draft, but again I held onto my best fic of the year too long and that meant Merlot Red and Enemy Lines got published during the holidays when no one was reading fic. Grr. Argh. Also, my Yuletide fic always overinflate my end of year unediteds since I can't claim my fic and publish them until after the reveal. This year I had three Yuletide fic, which will go up in the next few days.

I didn't manage a 100% completion rate for Numb3rs fic in 2011, but with only 1 partial out of the 68 I started? (Mi Corazon, which is going to be long!) Not bad.

The final numbers for 2011 are as follows:

Published Fic:
Numb3rs - 71
White Collar - 54
X-Men - 4
Castle - 2
Covert Affairs - 2
Lie to Me - 2
Sherlock - 2
Supernatural - 2
Torchwood - 2
Blood Ties - 1
Bones - 1
Brimstone - 1
Burn Notice - 1
Criminal Minds - 1
Cupid - 1
Doctor Who - 1
Dollhouse - 1
Firefly - 1
Hawaii Five-0 - 1
Heroes - 1
Leverage - 1
Miracles - 1
Primeval - 1
Psych - 1
Revenge - 1
The Mentalist - 1
The Unit - 1
Crossovers - 20 (9 N3/WC, 3 WC/CA, 1 WC/Firefly/HDM, 1 N3/SPN, 1 N3/CM, 1 N3/LtM, 1 N3/XM, 1 N3/The Unit, 1 WC/XM, 1 SPN/AtS)

Total - 179

(Amazingly 13 *more* than last year: 2010 had 166. 2009 had 177. 2008 had 195.)

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

I now have fic published in 27 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, Covert Affairs, Hawaii Five-0, Sherlock, X-Men and Revenge. The last four on that list were added in 2011. I've also published crossovers with Buffy, Angel and His Dark Materials. Stay tuned for new Yuletide fandoms The Sandman and Fairy Tales! (Yes, I'm finally branching out into non-TV fandoms!)

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

Please read Confession Part 2 for more comments.

Confession Part 2
It's no secret to anyone who follows even some of my Confession posts that going back to college not only ate my brain it ate almost all my fic time. /sad face/ Being the glutton for punishment I am (aka standard overachiever) I took more units and more honors classes than I probably should have so even the summer was insane. It makes me sad that I barely did anything but drabble (they've probably forgotten about me over at numb3rs_slash), but I'm glad I kept up and was able to complete all the weekly prompts for both numb3rs100 (and Rewinds!) and whitecollar100.

I've sadly had to curtail my fic gifting, even though most of my over 2K fic for last year were gifts in some shape or form. I feel bad because all of my F-list friends deserve nice presents. I'm just not in a position to keep up with everyone's birthdays. /very sad face/

I did, at least, keep my promise to post at least one fic in each of my fandoms. I keep telling myself to start earlier in the year and this time I did: October versus November. /headdesk/ Someone kick me to start in March this year, okay? LOL

To all my betas and First Readers, I'm sorry I didn't have more fun stuff for you this year, but I do very much appreciate your support. Your time is a gift and I'm honored you're willing to share it with me. /bows/

To the lovely people on my F-list who are still with me after all this time, thank you. I miss you and think of you despite how much I suck with following your lives on your LJs. Know that I still consider you my friends and I welcome any kind words you toss my way, even if I suck too much to reply to all my comments. There's always a mid-term or a paper or a presentation I'm on deadline for so while I read them I don't let myself respond unless I'm up to date with schoolwork (which sadly rarely happens). I've always thought that it was more important for me to use my time to contribute fic to the fandom instead of comments, so know that every time I post new fic it's my gift to you in return, thinking of you and wanting you to have enjoyable fic to read.

Thank you as well to all the people who read my fic: regulars, passers-by and lurkers. I may write it for myself and for my fandoms, 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 (well, I do try, though it may take me a bit) 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 2011.

Longer Fic:

Numb3rs: Penance, Merlot Red, Strongroom, A Dozen Homecomings, Siesta, Sunset
(This list in order by size.)

White Collar: The Vanishing Act Series

Castle: Alexis Annually

Lie to Me: Eli Loker - Radical Honesty

Sherlock: Beginner's Studies (The Baker Street Remix)

Primeval: Master Misunderstanding

Hawaii Five-0: Back in the Day

Crossovers: The Consummate Companion (WC/F/HDM), Enemy Lines (N3/The Unit), Aces and Eights (SPN/AtS)
(This list in order by size.)

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

A note about Viceworld:
Homicide - the first novel in the Viceworld universe - did not come out in 2010 as planned nor did it come out in 2011. /hangs head/ I did publish the second novella in Viceworld's Sin spin off series, Penance, at least. I have a mostly done Homicide and a barely started Larceny facing me for this year so plenty to do even if I don't write Grace, the final installment in the Sin trilogy.
