snagged from [livejournal.com profile] ereshai

Top 5 Hits

Hart of Gold, OUAT, Rumpel/Belle, 5287 hits. Modern Day AU. Isabelle Hart is the latest alias of a legendary grifter and thief. Her latest con involves bringing down ruthless business tycoon, Robert Gold, but this particular job was never her idea... -- I think AU Rumbelle was pretty big when I wrote this. I'm not sure if it would be more of less popular if I wrote & posted it now.

Avengers in Babysitting, MCU, various pairings, 2613 hits. Following the Battle of New York, Darcy Lewis is interning at Stark Tower, where all the of Avengers now live. When a mysterious package arrives for Tony, it's Darcy who must deliver it to the latest Avengers meeting in the conference room. Is it a bomb? A gift? A trophy? An AC/DC record? None of the above - it's a baby. Now the Avengers must face their scariest challenge yet - baby-sitting a six month old! Pepper is blaming Tony, Clint is looking to a future with Natasha, Steve and Thor are thinking about their respective past and future relationships, and Darcy is setting her sights on the softer side of Bruce. All this before they even discover that this isn't any ordinary child they're taking care of... -- written for the Marvel Bang last year, I really didn't expect anyone to read it, but they did! lol

Further on Down the Road, Leverage, ELiot/Parker, 2468 hits. Post-Season 3. After Moreau is dealt with, Eliot feels he must leave the team, maybe just for a while or maybe forever. Parker thinks its a bad idea for him to go away at all, and handles it in her own singular way. -- I loved writing this road trip fic and was thrilled when it proved popular.

What Might've Been, Gilmore Girls, Rory/Jess, 2426 hits. Jess is sent to live with his Uncle Luke around the same time that Lorelai and Rory move into their house in Stars Hollow. Getting to know each other from age eleven leads to an evolved relationship for Rory and Jess that was never romantic, but as the best friends reach age sixteen, what might change? -- My first 'full-length' GG fic.

The Runaways, Gilmore Girls, Rory/Jess, 2198 hits. Rory can't face home after sleeping with Dean, fighting with Lorelai, and touring Europe with her grandma. Running away suddenly looks very appealing, and she's headed towards the one person who always seems to understand her, even when Rory doesn't understand herself. Literati. -- My second 'full-length' GG fic.


Top 5 Kudos

Hart of Gold, 138 kudos.

Avengers in Babysitting, 109 kudos.

A Little Understanding, X-Men, Rogue/Logan, 94 kudos. Of all the people at Xavier's school, nobody understands each other quite as well as Logan and Rogue. -- My first X-Men fic ever, I didn't think anyone woudl luck it since most Rogue/Logan fics tend to err towards smut and mine was just cute ;)

What Might've Been, 82 kudos.

Further on Down the Road, 78 kudos.


Top 5 Bookmarks

Hart of Gold, 28 bookmarks.

Further on Down the Road, 17 bookmarks.

Objects in the Rearview, Leverage, Eliot/Parker, 15 bookmarks. AU Mid-to-Late Season 4. Parker isn't sure what to think when she realises her heart just isn't in her relationship with Hardison. She turns to Eliot for advice, and that only seems to make things more complicated! -- My last major E/P fic before I took a break. Nice to know it didn't suck!

What Might've Been, 15 bookmarks.

The Blame Game, Gilmore Girls, Rory/Jess, 14 bookmarks. Starts in 2.19 Teach Me Tonight. When the car crash happens differently, with wholly different consequences, it causes Rory & Jess to make different choices in their relationships and changes how they both move forward. It also alters things for Luke & Lorelai too. Literati. -- This one was fairly short but I guess some folks just liked it.


All in all, it seems the same few fics get all the hits, kudos, and bookmarks, and its never the ones I expect! lol

Meme: Fic Commentaries!  
Since I'm pretty sure no-one will really go for this, I'm safe to post it :P lol

Parkered from [livejournal.com profile] mizzy2k and [livejournal.com profile] telaryn

Pick any passage of 500 words or less from any fanfic I’ve written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you the equivalent of a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what’s going on in the character’s heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you’d expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

All fics are either here or here

Meme spotted on various journals... thought I'd post it, just in case anybody had any questions or just general wonderings...

Give me a link to one of my fics, and I'll give you three details that didn't make it into the fic. Background canon, deleted scenes, or a look into the future. My choice, but if you have a specific question you can ask it in your request.

Day 30 of 30 Day Shipping Meme  

Day 30 - Your favorite ship forever and ever and ever?

I actually can't answer this. Its the last day of the meme, a whole months worth of answering these questions, and it comes to the last one... and I'm stumped!!

I have loved so many ships I thought would be forever and then given up or just not cared anymore. Right now I have at least half a dozen ships I love that could be forever, but probably won't be.

So, instead I have decided to go with the awesome [livejournal.com profile] goddessofbirth 's idea and list out all my ships past and present, major and minor, from TV shows, movies, and books - every one I can think of, so here goes...

Eliot/Parker (Leverage)
Jayne/River (Firefly)
Logan/Veronica (Veronica Mars)
Mac/Dick (Veronica Mars)
Barney/Robin (How I Met Your Mother)
Penny/Sheldon (Big Bang)
Brando/PJ (My Boys)
Jack/Elizabeth (Pirates of the Carribean)
Spike/Buffy (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
Cordy/Doyle (Angel)
Jackie/Hyde (That 70s Show)
Weevil/Mac (Veronica Mars)
Nate/Sophie (Leverage)
Clark/Lois (Smallville + Lois & Clark)
Cordy/Angel (Angel)
Michael/Mia (The Princess Diaries)
Wes/Fred (Angel)
Nick/Lindsay (Freaks & Geeks)
Daniel/Lindsay (Freaks & Geeks)
Jake/Tiffany (California Dreams)
Chloe/Lex (Smallville)
Caroline/Richard (Caroline in the City)
Spike/Faith (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

Casey/Ellie (Chuck)
Chuck/Sarah (Chuck)
Xander/Illyria (Buffy the Vampire Slayer / Angel)
Will/Kate (A Knights Tale)
Darcy/Lizzie (Pride & Prejudice)

Yup, I think thats it... though I probably missed some! lol

This meme has been fun - kinda sorry I'm done with it now...

Day 29 of 30 Day Shipping Meme  

Day 29 - What ship had the best proposal?

I doubt anyone here is going to know who I'm talking about, but the best proposal by far that I ever saw on TV was Alice & Hugo.



These two characters are from an English comedy series called The Vicar of Dibley, starring Dawn French. Since most of my friends here on LJ are American, I'm not convinced you'll have even heard of it, but I could be wrong... Anyway, Alice and Hugo had been friends since childhood and had a crush on each other forever, but they're both a little... um, special? Yeah, okay a little stupid too! lol But they're very sweet and it took forever for them to get together.

Eventually, Hugo decided it was time he married Alice, even though his father defied him to propose. Hugo had to man up and go for it anyway, and this proposal was so incredibly awkward and incredibly sweet at the same time, it had to be my answer for today's question.

I hope you'll agree with me when you watch the above clip :-)

Day 28 of 30 Day Shipping Meme  

Day 28 - A pairing that you will never understand?

I think [info]goddessofbirth 's answer to this question was possibly the squickiest thing I ever heard, and any kind of incest would have been correct really, but the pairing I had picked out is almost as bad as that: Connor & Cordelia.



Angel: The Series got kinda screwed up in Season 4 anyway, and most people will tell you its their least favourite season (not everybody, but A LOT of people). Connor was fine as a baby, I could even deal with him as a rebellious teen... and then he started macking on Cordelia, and I wanted to vomit!!

I know, I know, he was raised in a hell dimension and she was possessed by a demon that wanted to use her to give birth to itself, BUT that doesn't change the fact that I had to bear witness to a teenage kid making out with the woman that had fed him bottles and changed his diapers a few episodes earlier AND was practically dating his Dad too!

It was every kind of wrong, and even Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia) will tell you that. So, So, So Squicky!!

Day 27 of 30 Day Shipping Meme  

Day 27 - A pairing that you loved and ended up hating?

For this I have to go with another Friends pairing, this time Chandler & Monica.



Back in the beginning of Friends, Chandler was always my favourite character. He was simply hilarious, and I still use some of his one-liners to this day, whenever I get the chance. When they paired him up with Monica in the London episodes? Loved it! They were so funny and cute together... and then I got bored. I got so painfully bored of the hybrid Mondler creature they seemed to become. There were times it was as if they morphed into one person, and other times when I was just hating her for telling him his jokes weren't funny, etc. It just became boring and awkward for me, and I wished they'd never got together. I'm probably the only one who feels that way, but thats how it is.

Day 26 of the 30 Day Shipping Meme  


Day 26 - A pairing that you hated and ended up loving?

The only pairing I can think of that kind of fits this is Cordy & Angel.



I don't think I can say I ever hated the idea of these two together, more that it didn't make sense to me and I wasn't comfortable with it. I kept thinking, if Angel was so devoted to Buffy, how could he be with Cordy? Doesn't that just make her second best? Then I got to thinking about Doyle, because initially I was all about Cordy/Doyle, until of course the character died, and there wasn't even any chance of resurrection later, as with so many other Jossverse characters, when poor Glenn Quinn passed away in real life.

So, by the time we got well into Season 3, I was coming around to the idea that both Angel & Cordy should be allowed to move on (I actually prefer the idea of Angel not being so hung up on Buffy, since I've been a Spuffy shipper forever! lol) and I really wanted them to work. I hated suddenly teenaged Connor screwing it up!

In Season 5, when Cordy wakes from her coma (or rather doesn't but appears to) and comes back to help Angel one last time before she must go, well, the kiss good bye almost broke my heart! I wanted them to get happy ever after when it was all too late for it to happen *sigh*

Day 25 - A pairing that was/would-be adorable, but could never work out?

For a while, I actually thought these two would work out, but it wasn't to be, so my answer is Phoebe & Joey.




There was more than one moment when they seemed to connect in such a way that they looked destined. Both had such an odd way about them, and yet they always made sense to each other. Plus there was a few kisses between these two that made me squee! lol They would have been totally adorable and cute together, but in the end I guess Phoebe did belong with Mike, and maybe Joey really wasn't the settling down kind *sigh*

Day 24 of 30 Day Shipping Meme  

Day 24 - A crazy love triangle/quadrilateral that worked out badly?

This one really didn't take much thinking about at all; the answer has to be Duncan/Veronica/Logan... or maybe I should go for the whole pentagon... Meg/Duncan/Veronica/Logan/Lilly.



Veronica Mars found herself in the middle of a whole lot of messes over the three seasons she was on TV, but nothing ever got quite so screwed up as her complicated love life!

Veronica started out dating Duncan Kane, whilst his sister Lilly Kane (who was also Veronica's best friend) dated Logan Echolls. Duncan dumped Veronica because he found out there was a possibly she was his half sister, thanks to an affair between his Dad and her Mom. Shortly after this, Lilly meets her death at the hands of Logan's father, Aaron, who she has been secretly sleeping with behind her boyfriends back (plus she was having even more bouncy fun with Weevil, head of the local biker gang!)

So, Logan and Veronica pretty much hate each other for most of the first season and then their angry passion turns to sexual passion and much making out ensues. Before long they realise they are actually in love, and Duncan has by now moved on to dating good girl, Meg Manning.

Unfortunately, happiness never lasts long in Neptune. Veronica breaks up with Logan after he gets accused of murder and changes into someone she can't handle, and Meg & Duncan break up because she knows she's second best. This leads to a Veronica/Duncan reunion... until Meg is involved in a bus crash and everyone finds out she's pregnant whilst she's still in a coma!

Next thing you know, there's a baby girl in the world courtesy of a C-section, Meg is dead, and Duncan is forced to leave Veronica behind and go on the run with his baby because Meg's abusive parents want the child and he can't let that happen!

It looked like Veronica & Logan were at least going to get a happy ending together, but after quite a few issues regarding trust and all, he made the ultimate mistake and in one of the many 'off' periods in their on-again off-again relationship, Logan slept with Madison Sinclair, Veronica's worst enemy (she was partially repsonsible for Veronica being raped years before, amongst other things).

And so from the five people that started this love pentagon, the third and final season ended with two people dead, one on the run, and a rather ambiguous situation between the two left behind. Yes, I rambled a lot, but I think I have made my point! lol

Day 23 of 30 Day Shipping Meme  

Day 23 - A crazy love triangle/quadrilateral that worked out great?

So many choices, but I think the triangle/quadrilateral... or should that be pentagon?... that worked out best was Eric/Donna/Hyde/Jackie/Kelso



In Season 1, Hyde and Eric were vying for Donna's attention. I wanted Hyde to win because I liked him better, but it was soon clear Eric & Donna belonged together.

So that might've left Hyde lonely, but just as soon as it was looking that way, Kelso started screwing around and Jackie dumped him. Hyde was there for Jackie, she fell for him, he fell for her, and later my favourite pairing happened - Jackie/Hyde!

I ended up loving Eric/Donna and wanting them to be happy ever after, but not quite as much as I adored Jackie/Hyde. Kelso got a girl named Brooke pregnant and they got along well enough. It was all about the happy!

So yeah, just so long as I continue to pretend that the end of Season 7 was different plus the whole of Season 8 never happened, its all good ;-)

Day 22 - A pairing you hate and no one else understands why?

I have very few pairings that I really hate and even fewer that are difficult to understand why... Still, I'm not having another day where I can't answer the question so, I'm going with Fred & Gunn.



For me, Fred was crushing on Angel when he first saved her from Pylea, whilst Wesley was clearly into Fred. Gunn started to like Fred too, and all of a sudden they were dating, but they just didn't work for me. I do wonder if Joss just put them together to increase the tension and twist up the dynamics of the team, etc. as he so loves to do. Anyway, the point is for me that Gunn and Fred were just far too different to ever work out. Sure, opposites attract, but I never felt like they really understood each other or even truly believed themselves that they belonged together. The chemistry just wasn't there and I really disliked them as a pairing. Of course when Fred and Wes finally got it together like I wanted, they had Illyria take over her body and Fred died. Sucks to have my ships sometimes! lol
