Total Number of Stories: 305

Total Word count: 354,093

Shortest story: 100 words (various drabbles)

Longest story: Learning To Trust (Zine) The Common Factor (Web)

Drabbles 100 words exactly) 115

Stories 200 - 1,000 words: 117

Stories 1,001 - 5,000 words: 57

Stories 5,000 - 10,000 words: 12

Stories over 10,000 words: 04

Average length of story: 1,161

(I am not at all happy at all about the length of my stories. Although I have thoroughly enjoyed writing the drabbles and quite a lot of other stories where I have been rigid in word count, e.g. making them exact multiple of 100, I am disappointed that I have so few stories over 5,000 and 10,000 words. One of my aims next year is to try to persuade my muse/bunny to return to writing longer stories, as I always used to do.

Story Ratings:

G = 111

PG = 149

R = 12

About the stories

Stories already written but not yet posted: One - for ncis_tinsel (which I shall aim to post at: 00:01 01/01/08). Oddly enough the end of each year is the only time that I do not have at least half a dozen stories in hand.

WIPs: For the first time since starting to do this year end meme, I can actually give a number of WIPs, as I had a session during the last month or two whereby I went through the considerable number I had and took a serious look at each story to see if I really was ever going to finish it. This is a result of that intense purge.

Gibbs/Ducky - 32
Napoleon/Illya - 16
Bodie/Doyle - 08
Fraser/Vecchio - 03
Silver/Steel - 01
Total: 60

My favourite story this year:

This is very difficult indeed. It's a toss up of so many (especially for Gibbs/Ducky). I love the first story of year (Mistletoe And Mulled Wine) and the last story of the year (All You Have To Do Is Ask), and many others. However. . .

Gibbs/Ducky: A Dog's Life. This is pure self-indulgence as the star of the story is actually Lacey, who manages to wrap the entire team around her little paw.

Non-Gibbs/Ducky: Let No Man Cast Asunder. (Silver/Steel - Sapphire & Steel). I like this because it shows the 'man' Steel has become because of his relationship with Silver, and it also shows the power he has. I feel it's a good balance of emotion and feeling. I just like it.

My best story this year:

Although really this isn't for me to judge, nonetheless, I have chosen.

Gibbs/Ducky: The Common Factor. It's an established relationship case story, with Gibbs going undercover as a gay man and is set in Season 2.

Although, going purely on the amount of feedback received for a single story, it is overwhelmingly Infinity Together. It's a drabble, a death drabble and although it was written with Gibbs/Ducky in mind, it can be read (and indeed was) as any male/male pairing.

Non-Gibbs/Ducky: Coming To Terms (Fraser/Vecchio - Due South). A very dark story that deals with as aspect of Victoria's Secret that I have not seen considered anywhere else. The scenario behind this story came to me so clearly when I saw Victoria's Secret for the first time; it seemed logical to me at the time, and has remained thus to me ever since. I wasn't certain I'd ever write it, but a certain 'person' had other ideas.

Story most under appreciated by the universe, in my opinion:

Gibbs/Ducky: A Ghostly Tale. Which is one of my Ducky educating Gibbs and the children stories. It's the seventh story in my Occasions Universe and this one had Ducky regaling them with tales of Scottish ghosts.

Non-Gibbs/Ducky: A few of my rare pairs stories have received no comments at all, so I've just picked one. Never The Same Again. (Neil/Willie - The Sandbaggers). It's a short first time story - Willie and Neil have been sent on a mission together. Willie is shot, and he sees a completely hitherto unknowns side of Neil.

Most fun story:

Gibbs/Ducky: Basic Black. This is crack!fic (something I never thought I'd write - eyes aingeal8c). And it is actually Gibbs/Everyone (Twenty-One NCIS characters both male and female + one, a 'surprise' one)

Non-Gibbs/Ducky: Work Of An Expert. (Napoleon/Illya - The Man From U.N.C.L.E.). Illya is locked in an escape proof cell; it's an older men story.

Most sexy story:

I don't tend to write sex or sexy stories - but this year I not only wrote a romantically sexy G/D story, I did write at least one sex scene too :-)

Gibbs/Ducky: Healing Hands. Pretty much pure PWP from beginning to end.

Non-Gibbs/Ducky: More Than Just Passion. (Bodie/Doyle - The Professionals). Is the closest I came to a sexy non-Gibbs/Ducky story this year. It's short and takes place in their bed.

Story with single sexiest moment:

Gibbs/Ducky: Healing Hands. We have a massage scene (very mild, I must admit).

Non-Gibbs/Ducky: There wasn't one.

Hardest story to write:

Gibbs/Ducky: Finding A Way. A first time story written for this year's ncis_gibbsducky Yuletide Gift Exchange to fit the wishes of my recipient (who sadly does not appear to have read the story). It was so difficult to write because the recipient wanted a lack of one thing that features in a good 99.9% of my G/D stories - WAFF (warm and fuzzy feelings). I was actually pleased with the way the story turned out (and huge thanks have to once again go to aingeal8c who metaphorically held my hand, cheered me on, encouraged and supported me before, during and after the writing of the story). And with the exception of the final scene which, had I not been writing it for someone else, I would have made slightly 'warmer', I wouldn't change anything about it.

Non-Gibbs/Ducky: Coming To Terms. (Fraser/Vecchio - Due South). The reason is was so difficult to write was because of the subject matter and because Ray Vecchio is my favourite Due South character.

Easiest story to write:

Gibbs/Ducky: All You Have To Do Is Ask. In contrast to the above, this story is very 'me'. It's chock full of WAFF (but very in character WAFF); has 'marriage' vows; an engagement; the team; a kiss and a dance.

Non-Gibbs/Ducky: Somewhat Fitting. (Abby/McGee - NCIS. It does mention Gibbs/Ducky a few times, but only in passing). Despite this in some ways being a death story and in some ways being a several hanky story, I nonetheless found it very easy to write, because it summed up the lives of the people perfectly. It's an older pairing story, set 30+ years in the future.
