I confess that I love my statistics.

That I like numbers should come to no surprise to anyone who noticed me publishing well over a hundred Numb3rs fic in the last year or so.

Or to be more precise: 150 fic in 2006 and 25 in 2005.

Such nice pretty numbers! I had written one final fic on New Year's Eve to make sure I hit 200 before the end of the year so I figured 175 published means a nice clean 25 unpublished right?



I had 26 unpublished fic (partials and completeds in beta).

It took me a bit to figure out where I went wrong. I had originally written Conflict and Resolutions as a flash fic for numb3rsflashfic and then it grew into two 24 page fic later. I felt like I should honor the original reason for the fic and released the Prologue as a separate fic on the comm, then released the full version of C&R as well without marking them as two separate fic on my list.

I had kind of done the same thing with Distraction and Off the Cuff, but I think I changed it enough that I went ahead and renamed the new fic and didn't have the same problem of listing them separately.

The best laid schemes of Emma gang aft agley... ;-)

Now a few comments about the annual review...

The final numbers for 2006 are as follows:

Published Fic

Numb3rs – 150
Heroes – 11
Criminal Minds – 10
Supernatural – 8
The Unit – 3
Psych – 2
Crossovers – 4 (3 N/CM, 1 N/SPN)
Total – 188

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

So I have six fandoms represented here: Numb3rs, Supernatural, Criminal Minds, The Unit, Psych and my latest love, Heroes.

Numb3rs I started ficcing in 2005. I've always had a tendency to be a one fandom girl so when people tried to lure me into Supernatural I naturally resisted.


Resistance is futile.

So I started experimenting to see if I could handle more than one fandom without losing my focus. It went well so when I started watching Criminal Minds and The Unit those got tossed in too.

Psych was an anomaly. I guess at that point I was a bit too influenced by other people and wrote a fandom I wasn't totally into. I had wanted to work on my humor fic though so I'm hoping when the show starts up again I'll get back into it and fic some more and enjoy it.

Now Heroes though... That fandom is dangerously close to supplanting Numb3rs as my favorite. I already liked David Krumholtz in movies (I don't remember catching any of his myriad of failed pilots/series) so I was rather destined to give Numb3rs a try. Heroes had Adrian Pasdar, whom I've always had a soft spot for, so I had to watch it as well. Plus I was a big comics fan in my youth and early adulthood. (I grew up on X-Men and left comics after the Sandman series of graphic novels came to a close. It was kind of like a bad breakup – I couldn't stand to be around my ex-universe's friends.) ;-) So in a short period of time Heroes became my second most written fandom and I'm sure much more fic will come once the show starts up again. After all, Nathan! Enough said. /grins/

A word about ratings...

This is a sore subject and one I've already addressed in Confession posts, but I just wanted to let people know I am in the process of going back and editing my published fic to put appropriate ratings on them and removing the default NC17s. I finally got over being burned and now I have to pay the price with hard labor. At least my fic from this year on will all receive ratings reflecting their true content.

I know a lot of my content this year has been drabbles, but I thought I'd take a moment to remind people I do write longer fic as well. Here's a short list of some of the longer fic in my back catalog.

A Shift in the Continuum
Ash and Pines
Conflict and Resolutions
Down a Dusty Dirt Road
Simon Says
Teacher's Pet
U is for Undercover
V is for Verdict

I want to say a huge thank you to all my betas for their friendship and support. You're all remarkable people and knowing you has made me glad I came to LJ.

Thank you as well to all the people who read my fic here. I may write it for myself, but I get a lot out of sharing it thanks to you.

U is for Undercover
I read this on a challenge list. In fact, I read it twice then started to track down your writing. This lent me to finding the Numb3rs100 live journal. I added it to my URLs and have been enjoying all the drabbles. Thanks for all the enjoyable reading and especially the prompts.
