1. What’s your first and second most common work ratings? Any surprises?
Teen and Up Audiences, Mature Audiences. I tend to err on the side of higher ratings so this makes sense...
2. What’s your most common archive warning? Least common? Do you consider yourself an adventurous writer?
Most common is "choose not to warn" because I get worried about doing it wrong... least common technically is Major Character Death with zero, least common-but-actually-used is graphic depictions of violence, which given Hunger Games Canon is...okay nothing I write is actually more gory than canon but canon is pretty graphic in places.
3. How many fics have you written in each relationship category? Is this more accidental, or do you have preferences?
Gen: 38 F/F: 9 F/M: 3 M/M: 1 Other: 1 (which is.... ah, the maps post that is not actually fic)
Fun fact: up till a couple months ago I had actually zero M/M fics but then I wrote a birthday present for lorata because her OC Alec needed to be loved
4. What are your top 4 fandoms by numbers? Are you still active in any of them, and do you tend to migrate a lot?
Lol well I've only written 5: Hunger Games: 41 Star Wars: 4 Leverage: 1, will be 2 by end of this month because DEADLINES Dragon Age II: 1...which I should finish... Stranger Things: 1
And I just write what my brain comes up with, so idk, I might write more for these or I might end up off in some other direction entirely, WHO KNOWS? NOT ME
5. What are your top character tags? Does this match how you feel about the characters, or are you puzzled?
Okay well if you included OCs this would be different because Rokia would have 17 on AO3, and some others (like Sara and Zea...) would have quite a few, but I don't tag specific OCs. Maybe I should start, for my own edification. For canon characters: Johanna Mason: 17 Finnick Odair: 16 Lyme: 9 Blight: 8 Beetee Latier: 7 Brutus: 5 Rey: 4
....okay Blight is in there a surprising amount but he's usually a pretty minor character. Other than that, yeah, sounds about right.
6. What are your top 2 most used additional tags, and your bottom 2? What would happen if you combined all 4 of these into a fic?
....omg okay top 4 canonical tags because sigh: "District 6", "Canon Compliant", "Implied/referenced rape/non-con", "AU-Canon Divergence"
so. there's that. I'm not sure how you get relative frequency of all tags, but I use "canon-typical horribleness" a lot as a catchall for many things...
(this is why when I get those kudos-emails where someone's read through a whole bunch of stuff at once I'm both like "yay!" and also "are you okay do you need some tea and a soft blanket?"
least-used... "War Crimes" (1) and "Animal Death" (1) probably? There's some others with one but we'll go with that. And I actually can't combine ALL of these into a fic, but it'd be pretty easy to do D6-canon compliant fic with war crimes and animal death. I just don't want to, because canon is dark as fuck and I like my characters to survive thanks.
7. How many WIPs do you have currently running on AO3? Any you don’t plan on finishing?
ha ha ha ha omg okay if you define as actual works in progress as opposed to series in progress, there's... only three: "Proof that the spirit has not died" (the D9/rebellion from below one), "Start taking back what they stole" (the Rokia-after-the-75th one), and "It's just messy" (the DAII Isabela/F!Hawke one).
I want to finish all of these! The first two are close (as in, I know what happens and it's ≤ 2 chapters away from done) and the DAII one....I should probably play the game again and figure out wtf I want to do to finish this one.
If you count "Series I should write/post more in"... there's some "Rokia gets recruited to the rebellion" stuff I'd like to write for "Smiles and Promises," there's another whole fic to finish out "The Rebellion from Below," and there's a bunch of stuff in Scrivener/on my journal for the post-war series that I will probably keep slowly filtering out to AO3...
And then there's the Leverage Big Bang fic I am behind on and need to finish sooooon, but that's not posted anywhere yet.
And lorata will
yell at remind me if I don't mention the Sentient Octopus AU which...oh dear yes I should finish that I'm just...idk.
