Fan Fiction Round-up - 2016 *revised*

A summary: In 2016, I wrote six fan fiction stories totaling 181,500 words. I’m up from 2015 with 140,000!  My Westallen Muse dwindled down to 20,000 words, which included the ‘Westallen Smut Challenge’: Over the Edge.  Most of the words were written for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) and Star Wars (TFA, 2015).

**I've decided to add my current WIP (Before You Go), because the majority of that fiction was written in 2016 (61,000 words)!

My current WIP (if any): Before You Go (Clark/Lois, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)  & Justice League (2017)). With a total of 71,300 currently written, this fiction will be complete by the end of January 2017.  It's the third in a series of stories that began when Man of Steel premiered in June 2013, and since then, I've written 'Man of Steel: Stolen Moments' and 'Till the End of Time.'  You should read those pieces before reading this one.

My longest fan fiction: Back to You (Finn/Rey, Star Wars/TFA (2015)), with a total of 43,000 words.  My Muse kicked into high gear several weeks after seeing the movie. What drove the story was the idea that they were thrown together by destiny and the rest flowed nicely.

My best story: Till the End of Time (Clark/Lois, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)). As if I need to explain why this story was written.  It felt like therapy after a member of my family had died.  It was tough at first feeling Lois’s pain of loss and loneliness, but I got through it and so did she. 

My favorite story: Over the Edge (Barry/Iris, Flash-TV (2014). The Second Annual Westallen Smut Challenge. Earths 1 and 2 were the focus of writing this story.  With different prompts for each chapter, it flowed between both universes with ease, which stories of this kind usually do; at least for me.

My favorite OC: Back to You (Finn/Rey, Star Wars/TFA (2015)).  It felt wonderful to give Finn and Rey twin boys.  I didn’t go into any great length, that included showcasing them as toddlers and then as young men (19 years old), the same age as their grandfather when he became a Jedi, but also giving them names like: Luke and Finn, Jr., felt right, especially for Finn and Rey.

Story most under-appreciated by fandom, in my opinion: Things that Never Die (James/Kara, Supergirl (TV-2015)).  Not much else needs to be said.  Fans don’t like James, but I love him.

Story I wrote that I never thought I'd write: Something Real (James/Kara, Supergirl (TV-2015)).  Kara on red-K intrigued me and I wanted to showcase their chemistry (which I truly hoped would happen in the episode ‘Falling’), but the writers thought otherwise.

Most fun: My Supergirl stories, all of them, which totaled close to 34,000 words! My Muse couldn’t let them go. *sigh*

Sexiest story: Over the Edge (Barry/Iris, The Flash TV (2014)). Written for the Second Annual Westallen Smut Week Challenge, I had so much fun on Earth 1 and Earth 2.

Hardest story to write: Things that Never Die (James/Kara, Supergirl (TV (2015)). After James was abruptly stricken from Kara’s life as a love interest, I wrote this story with a slight hope that they could work things out, and get back together.

Easiest to write: Back to You (Finn/Rey, Star Wars/TFA (2015)).  I loved the movie and giving Rey Jedi powers right away, but keeping Finn’s Jedi powers underwritten (keeping them hidden, for much of the story) seemed to work.

Did you take any writing risks this year? See ... Hardest story to write!

Biggest disappointment
:  I loved all my stories this past year, so my Muse didn't disappoint, not at all.  I'm always hoping to write more every year.

Biggest surprise:  Something Real (James/Kara, Supergirl (TV-2015)). Kara on red-K shocked and surprised me.  I wrote this story before the episode aired and I loved writing it.

All stories are located at FFN and/or AO3.
