The Rules: Sometimes it's ok to pimp yourself out. Post a list of your top five fic-favorites 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.

The Other Rules: After each story, add a little something about what you learned about writing in the process. Or, if you didn't learn anything, add something that fits contextually with the time of writing the story.

1. The Little Britain Trilogy: Little Britain / The Last Room / The Marked  Fandom = Star Trek: Enterprise
Lesson Learnt: Sometimes having a plot worked out beforehand is better than diving in and working it out as I go along (that said, it's not a lesson I've learnt well lol). Also, I loved this story, all three of 'em, I loved the OCs I created and I just loved it - even if by the end it wasn't that popular :)

2. Aftermath   Fandom= Star Trek: Enterprise
Lesson Learnt: Well, I learnt the value of a good beta-reader. Plus, it was a learning curve character wise - not in huge ways - but yeah. This one does hold a special place with me.

3. Croonin' Along to the Warp Core        Fandom= Star Trek: Enterprise
Lesson Learnt: This was EPIC! And so much fun to write - the research that went into getting all the lyrics and the songs - it was just silly humour really. There was a lesson here in research and restraint in a way - I didn't go as mad with it as I originally wanted to, and I'm glad I reigned it in because I loved the end result.

4. Denial       Fandom= Life On Mars
Lesson Learnt: I didn't as such learn a lesson from this, it was my first attempt at Life On Mars fanfic and looking across all my other LOM stories probably the best. I did learn I prefer writing Gene over Sam though if that counts :)

5. Mission Report         Fandom= Stargate Atlantis
Lesson Learnt:  That past childhood traumas over films involving talking toasters can always be solved by having fictional characters beat said toaster with a broken lamp. Seriously, The Brave Little Toaster scared the crap out of me when I was young.

I tag everyone whose reading this :)

I have just finished my entry for the LOM ficathon *beams* It's totally different (sort of) from the first idea I started out with because in the grand scheme of things I write a better Gene than I do Sam :P (at least I hope anyway!) 

They have to be a minimum of 1000 words and mine is 1025 *giggles*

Now all I need to do is get it betaed so it's totally ready for the deadline *beams some more*

Feeling serious relief and accomplishment right now *happy grin*

Well, I finally got my prompt through for the LOM ficathon, I actually already had my idea half written a while ago (kinda figured I'd have a head start if I got the prompt I was after) The thing has to be at least a 1000 words and currently it is...530.

I'm also worried its shit, so I'll be having close to a thousand people reading it over for me to check it for shitness.

The deadline isn't till august 25th but hey - I want it done as soon as so I have lots of lovely time for tweaking it into something presentable.

Oh God please let what I write for this ficathon be decent!

Life On Mars *swoon*

Also, theres a song called Here's To The Nights, by Eve 6 - if I ever learn how to make fanvids, that would be the song I would set a Life On Mars fanvid too, for me it seriously fits in with the series *nods* of course I could just be talking crazy talk, but still!
