OH MY GOSH, NONNY. *blush* ^_^ I have no idea what prompted this, but thank you so much! ^_____^
As for the thing I’m proudest of having written, I’d say it probably changes fairly often, actually. I don’t think there’s really one thing that I’m proudest of writing, but there will be small pieces of a lot of different stories that I’m proud of, moments that I thought I really accomplished what I set out to do with a piece of writing, you know?
A few of the pieces that stick out in my mind, atm, though, since you asked… ^_~
I’m pretty proud of No Man Is An Island, particularly the first chapter. I was aiming for a particular style of writing – lyrical & folklore-ish – and I think I actually managed it. I’m not sure I’ve held onto it in recent chapters, but at least in the beginning, it sounds very much how I wanted it to sound. ^_^
The middle section of the most recent chapter of Muet – This was the first thing I wrote after discovering what filter words were and it was my first attempt to consciously remove them from my writing. And I feel like in doing so, I finally achieved that dark, noir feel that I’d been aiming for with this story all along. (Word of warning to anyone who isn’t following this story already – it’s dark. VERY dark. Please head the warnings. O_o;;;)
And finally, any list of stories I’m proud of has to include To Make His Mistress Laugh. It was the first LM story I wrote once I’d started actually reading the brick and thus realized exactly how much fanon I’d allowed myself to believe was canon up until that point. This was one of those stories where I tried to turn it around and set it right and I’m still pretty proud of it for that. Also because Bahorel. And because I’m still inordinately fond of the pairing I ended up writing for this fic and I think I captured the voice of the other half of the ship better here than I ever have in any other story. ^_^
There are probably others, in other fandoms, most of them very small, but these are probably the most recent. ^_^
Thank you, again, nonny! You totally made my night with this message! ^_____^
