Confession Part 1
Stats again... I may not have much fic this year, but I can't stop the signal stats!

Last year I was mostly only able to post N100 and WC100 drabbles, but this year I had to give up on both WC100 drabbles and N100 Rewinds. Very sad. /sniff/ Being seriously ill all summer meant no respite for fic so there's almost nothing but N100 to report this year.

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
60 in 2012
Total N3 fic = 803

Partial/Unedited Unpublished Fic Over the Years:

EOY 2008: 35 Unpublished: 24 Partial 11 Unedited
EOY 2009: 19 Unpublished: 14 Partial 5 Unedited
EOY 2010: 21 Unpublished: 7 Partial 14 Unedited
EOY 2011: 15 Unpublished: 9 Partial 6 Unedited
EOY 2012: 23 Unpublished: 17 Partial 6 Unedited

Oddly I'm pleased at having more partials. I'd gotten so focused on finishing my fic I wasn't allowing myself to have open fic to play with. Now I'm less anal about it. I'm not letting it bother me much that I have so little time for fic so I'm also not beating up on myself for taking a long time to finish anything longer than a drabble.

FWIW, here's what's partial and unedited (so people can see what's coming):

Numb3rs Fic
Mi Corazon (The third in the Don Diego 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
Sleep in Peace (A nice Don/Robin)
Hanging On (The next NOO installment)
Treading Water (A Charlie/Ian series starter)
Yes Virginia (A Charlie/Ian one shot)

Supernatural Fic
The Comforts of Home (Long old Dean/Sam)
When the End is Near (Long old Dean/Sam)

Sherlock Fic
The Art and Science of Becoming a Proper Nemesis (A long H/C NC17 S/I)

X-Men Fic
Last Night on Earth (Pre-Cuba Charles/Erik)
105 Degrees (Mansion era Charles/Erik H/C)
Winter Spring Autumn (Charles/Erik post-divorce MPREG... Yes, MPREG.)
The Sleep of the Dead (Charles/Erik H/C)
Tea and Sympathetic Vibrations (Charles/Erik H/C)

Revenge Fic
Being Three (Nolan bisexuality fic)
What Money Can't Buy (Yuletide – On AO3)

Fairy Tales Fic
Should Auld Acquaintance Be Forgot (Yuletide – On AO3)

Grimm Fic (Yes, a new fandom!)
A Vigil A Moon A Vow A Man A Wolf (Nick/Monroe)

Crossover Fic
The Fingers in the Pie (Bones/CM case fic)
The Consummate Husband (WC/F/HDM P/E/N)
Heat Seeker (Lev/BTVS/SPN Eliot/Faith/Dean)

My Yuletide fic always overinflate my end of year unediteds since I can't publish my fic on LJ until after the reveal. This year I had two 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 2 partial out of the 64 I started in 2012? Not bad. Most of my partials were in other fandoms though.

The final numbers for 2012 are as follows:

Published Fic:

Numb3rs - 60
White Collar - 19
Brimstone - 1
Burn Notice - 1
Buffy - 1
Criminal Minds - 1
Cupid - 1
Dollhouse - 1
Fairy Tales - 1
Firefly - 1
Hawaii Five-0 - 1
Heroes - 1
Leverage - 1
Lie to Me - 1
Primeval - 1
Revenge - 1
Sandman - 1
Supernatural - 1
The Unit - 1
X-Men - 1
Crossovers - 1 (N3/CM)

Total - 98

(A whole 81 less than last year. Wow... 2011 had 179, 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 29 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, Revenge, The Sandman, Fairy Tales. The last two on that list were added for the previous year's Yuletide. I've also published crossovers with Angel and His Dark Materials and both a crossover and a remix with Buffy. I never finished my Grimm fic in 2012 and if I had, I'd have been at a neat 30 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 knows me even a little that college and health issues have left me with little time and energy to post any fic past N100. This also includes gift fic and ficathons, which I feel horrible about. I can still try to fulfill my Holiday post (see 12/25 of any year) fic requests, but past that I fear birthday fic has gone by the wayside for anyone but my slashwife, Mel. I even failed to keep my internal promise to post at least one fic in each of my fandoms. I spent much of my Thanksgiving break trying, but I didn't make it. I didn't even post a single fic for my favorite fandom of Miracles all year. /cries/ At least I managed Yuletide and a Yuletide pinch hit. It would have ruined my holidays if I had skipped that.

So to all my once upon a time betas and First Readers, I'm sorry I didn't have more for you to read this year, but I do very much appreciate your support. Your time is a gift and I'm honored that you've offered it to me in friendship.

To the lovely people on my F-list who are around after all this time, thank you. I miss you and think of you despite the fact that I have no time or energy to interact. It hurt me to give up on replying to commenting last year because it felt like the last place we were able to connect from time to time and now I don't even have that. Please know that I still consider you my friends. 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, thinking of you and wanting you to have enjoyable fic to read.

Thank you as well to all the other 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 ficlets, so for those of you who might have missed my longer fic I'm including a list below of the rare longer than 500 words pieces from 2012.

Longer Fic:

Numb3rs: The Latest Cake, People to See (Not the Only One Series), Second Nature

White Collar: No Mystery, Spark Extinguished

Revenge: The Stony Path

Sandman: For She Once Was Delight

Fairy Tales: Blood Red

Criminal Minds: Storm Clouds

X-Men: Hubris and Humility

Burn Notice: Friends, Lovers and Other Enemies

Supernatural: Bond and Free (The Earthly Room Remix)

Buffy: The Best Policy (The Possession Remix)

A note about Viceworld:
Homicide - the first novel in the Viceworld universe - did not come out in 2010, 2011 or 2012. It's mostly done, however I haven't had the ability to give it that final big push to complete it. Larceny, book 2, remains barely begun. Grace, the final installment in the Sin trilogy, hasn't even been fully planned. I know I have other universes that people care about (SHH/Harborverse, Don Diego, lots of Ian/Colby verses including Air, Bravo and WB), but Viceworld is my biggest undertaking and it bothers me greatly to see it fading faster than the fandom it was intended for.

On to 2013! Here's hoping a slightly more manageable courseload and a more stable medical status will allow me to write at least a little bit more than just N100 this new year. And remember, I can often be found hanging about in Mel's slashchat so I'm never completely gone!

Happy New Year!
