Rebcake's Fic Round-up of 2009

It was a pretty good year, fic-wise, chez Rebcake. I posted 9 drabbles, 2 sets of limericks (must do more in 2010), and 16 stories (7 of which were ficlet-sized), for a grand total of 27 individual works. Of the 16 stories, 5 won awards of some sort, which is amazing to me. You guys are so kind! I didn't seem to learn how to write without a deadline and the associated panic, but I was pretty happy with my output, overall. I wasn't so happy with LJ eating my posts, though. Grrr.

Spike was by far the major subject in these works. 3 drabbles and 2 ficlets did NOT contain Spike, and 2 additional stories had extremely minor or off-screen Spike. However, Spike was paired up (romantically or otherwise) with lots of folks: Drusilla, Buffy, Ethan Rayne & the Harlots, Illyria, Dawn (they're just good friends), Wish!verse Angel & Xander, Allen Ginsberg, and Dracula. I also wrote about Joyce, Darla, the Trio, Riley, and a whole assortment of baby Slayers. My tendency to do sort-of crossovers continues unabated, with nods to Mardi Gras, Disneyland, Howl (the poem), Woodstock, Love at First Bite (the 1979 movie), Carmen (the opera), Jack Be Nimble (the nursery rhyme), The Tar Baby (the folk tale), the Grammys, The Thief of Time (the Discworld novel), and Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer (the TV show). Oh, and Tom of Finland. I don't know where the madness will end.

Following are some links to the whole shebang. Don't you just love that word? I'll try to find unlocked posts, wherever possible. Award-winners are marked with (*).
