Post a list of your top five favorite fics you've written, regardless of fandom or the reason you love them. This isn't about the BEST things you've written, but what you LOVE most. Then tag five other people to do the same.

These so didn't suck. I do some rewriting of them, but mainly, I try to close my eyes and imagine them happening.

Full, Star Trek: TOS, Sarek/Amanda. They're married. She's miscarried. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one. I love it because I think I did right by antsy spiritual thing. Like, I really wanted one of the reasons that Sarek and Amanda was together was in part because of 'The All' aka G-D. I wrote it for a long-ago Holiday Fanfiction project. I was working really hard to deal with the alienness of Sarek, and also, the alienness of 'masculinity'. And also, an abbie doctor. No one's nailed me with that one yet, but c'mon, his name's Tigertail! I was really in love with Peg and Macedon's talking stick circle. Um. And now, I'm aware that the presence of a native name doesn't make my minor character a native. But still. It's there!

Two Breathe, Angel the Series: It's Cordelia, Angel, and Wesley (OMG, Wesley, you heroic man you!) after the Season 1 finale "To Shansu In LA". It's the way I like 'em. And I amazed myself with the ending line. I'm really proud of it. And I think I nailed the character voices, and, I got to make fun of...well, all of them.

Just A Girl, Gatchaman. I don't care, I wrote a Jun who is a geek, science-freak, can't cook, is desperate for love, sensual, sensible, romantic, humble, proud, giving, and wild. At least, I think I did. I stitched this together from some drabbles written for [livejournal.com profile] nexus100.

Love Sponge aka ALG6. I didn't think Storm/Iceman was possible (ETA: until I read [livejournal.com profile] poilass's Rain!), but I roped [livejournal.com profile] kassia06 into writing (the still unfinished) "Days of Our X" with me where we tried to get from them being themselves to what you see in Love Sponge. I typed that with one hand covering my eyes, I was mortified. But, I thought I did a good job.

Drive or Fly, X-Men. Warren Worthington, Scott Summers/Jean Grey. I identify with Warren, okay? I've been there. But, unlike Warren, I didn't manage to be the bridesmaid equivalent. For story reasons, I think this is economical but dense. I tried to make every word count. And also, I like the first five. Juggling friendship and responsibility never gets old. And also, Jean so did used to kiss Warren full on the mouth. Just, not, with tongue. (I hope). And in greeting. And that never seemed to phase Scott, y'know? And I know the year for the Gullwing is wrong, but I consider Earth 616 to be an alternate of ours anyhow.

Hmm...who do I tag...?

OH!
