Fic meme  
Answer the following 10 questions based only on the stories you've posted to AO3:

1) Which fandoms have you written in?
Torchwood, Doctor Who, Primeval, Being Human, Discworld and Spooks: Code 9, Whitechapel, Rivers of London.

2) Your best story title and why? Things Lost and Found Along the Way. It seems to sum up the story and it was one of the few where the title was already there at the start.

3) Your worst story title and why? Not as Planned. For ages it was untitled and it was only named what it was because I couldn't think of anything else. It still sounds like it should be about having a baby rather than crash landing on an ice planet.

4) The most popular pairing you've written for (by the standard of how many stories exist for that pairing written by everyone on AO3)? Jack/Ianto with 30 fics, the next closest is Ianto/Owen with 5 and Gwen/Rhys with 4.

5) The rarest pairing you've written for (by the standard of how many stories exist for that pairing written by everyone on AO3) ? Andy Davidson/Tom Mcnair. There is one fic for it on AO3 and that's by me.

6) The most popular OT3/moresome you've written for (by the standard of how many stories exist for that pairing written by everyone on AO3)? I've only written one OT3 which was Closer Together and Further Away, Jack/Ianto/Owen.

7) The rarest OT3/moresome you've written for (by the standard of how many stories exist for that pairing written by everyone on AO3)? Also Jack/Ianto/Owen, as it's the only OT3 I've written.

8) First story and latest story you posted to AO3?
The oldest story I have on AO3 is Control, a Torchwood gen fic. Latest is Lives are for Living a Torchwood/Being Human crossover fic currently a WIP.

9) Your top ten pairings on AO3
Jack/Ianto, Owen/Ianto, Gwen/Rhys, Becker/Ryan, Owen/PC Andy, Ianto/PC Andy, Tom McNair/PC Andy, Jack/Owen, Owen/Tosh, Martha Jones/Mickey Smith

10) How many stories have you written with no pairings/OT3/moresomes listed? What's the breakdown on your stories' ratings?
33 gen out of 86, and 1 out of 86 OT3

10 years ago meme  

The ten years ago meme. Because 10 years ago I was just about to finish university.

Long rambly meme that is rather more thinky and introspective than it was probably ever designed to be )

Character meme thing.  
I've seen this in a few places, so here goes.

I have a list of 15 characters. Please propose scenarios in the style of: "1 and 5 bake bread together. Does the kitchen survive?"


"3, 7, and 9 wake up married. Does the universe survive? What does 10 think?"

Characters on my list are from Torchwood, Doctor Who, Primeval, Sherlock, Being Human and Spooks: Code 9.

You are the Ninth Doctor
Take The Doctor Who Personality Test and Horoscope today!
Created with Rum and Monkey's Personality Test Generator.
You are a caring and fun loving person, but you like to keep your past to yourself. You enjoy showing off to people you think deserve it, but will belittle those you do not like. You prefer to have a small group of friends and do not really care about popularity. You are a bit rough and gritty, but keenly intelligent and sexy in a strange way. You are attracted to younger people. You have a good sense of humor, but you use it to cover up the pain you are really going through. You will sacrifice yourself to save someone you truly love, and then move to New York and become invisible.

Meme type thing  
Nabbed from [ profile] fiwen1010

Rather more accurate than these sort of quizzes tend to be.

you are mediumauqamarine

Your dominant hues are cyan and green. Although you definately strive to be logical you care about people and know there's a time and place for thinking emotionally. Your head rules most things but your heart rules others, and getting them to meet in the middle takes a lot of your energy some days.

Your saturation level is medium - You're not the most decisive go-getter, but you can get a job done when it's required of you. You probably don't think the world can change for you and don't want to spend too much effort trying to force it.

Your outlook on life is brighter than most people's. You like the idea of influencing things for the better and find hope in situations where others might give up. You're not exactly a bouncy sunshine but things in your world generally look up.

Over the hills and far away (Music meme)  
Music meme nabbed from [ profile] halftime1030

Put your iTunes, Windows Media Player, etc. on shuffle.

For each question, press the next button to get your answer. YOU MUST WRITE THAT SONG NAME DOWN NO MATTER HOW SILLY IT SOUNDS! (Otherwise, what's the point?)

Most of all, Have Fun! :D

Your Inner Gender is Male

You are rational, matter of fact, and quite dominant.

You like to get things done, without any emotional messiness.

You truly don't understand most women. And you definitely feel more comfortable around men.

No doubt about it. You're a guy - at least on the inside.

Your Personality is Somewhat Rare (ISTP)

Your personality type is reserved, methodical, spirited, and intense.

Only about 6% of all people have your personality, including 3% of all women and 8% of all men

You are Introverted, Sensing, Thinking, and Perceiving.

You Are 4% Girly

Um... you're a guy, right? If not, you're the most boyish girl in the world.

And for you, that's probably the ultimate compliment.

DVD commentary meme.  
Nabbed from [ profile] temporal_witch and [ profile] yamx

Pick a paragraph (or any passage less than 500 words) from any fanfic I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

I really need to update my fic masterlist - not least because I can't actually remember how many I've written, I think it's about 50 though.

25 things meme tagged by temporal-witch  
Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose a few people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you.

Pierced ears, chasing hat theives and red hair dye + 22 other random things )

I'm not tagging anybody, but anybody on the f-list can tag themselves if they want to.
