A year (and a month) in review.

I didn't do a fic roundup in January. I blame all the time I've spent in the dentist's chair. *mumble*root canal*grumble* So here's a belated list of the fic I posted in 2011:

Title: Haven’t Seen Your Face For A While
Rating: PG
Word count: 1175
Characters: Harmony with bonus Jonathan and Spike.
Summary: Harmony reflects on her lack of reflection circa Superstar.

Title: A Well Respected Man About Town
Rating: PG
Word Count: 980
Characters: Ethan Rayne, Anyanka, Halfrek, The Host
Summary: Ethan celebrates his latest success on the Hellmouth, after Band Candy and before The Wish.

Title: Boots to the Fire (Escape)
Rating: PG13
Word count: 2350
Characters: Spike/Buffy, Dawn/Xander, Clem!
Summary: It wasn’t until Buffy was living and slaying in San Francisco that her fascination with black motorcycle boots became an actual problem.

Title: Fire in the Soul (WIP, Chapter 1 / Chapter 2a / Chapter 2bc / Chapter 3)
Rating: PG13
Word count: 4400 this chapter, 13,000 overall so far
Characters: Spike, Buffy, Drusilla, Dawn
Warnings: A bit Dru-ish
Summary: A few years after Sunnydale’s spectacular demise, Buffy and her crew are getting on with their lives in San Francisco. A not entirely unwelcome blast from her past (Spike! It's Spike!) blows into town, but he’s brought more than the generally allowable amount of baggage with him. 

Title: Battle's End
Rating: PG13 (for a single naughty word)
Word Count: 190
Characters: Spike, Nikki Wood
Summary: Nikki fights Spike to a standstill — and a deal is struck.

Title: Flesh and Bone
Rating: R-ish
Word Count:  725
Characters: Spike/Buffy
Prompt: Skeleton Army
A/N: There's a new evil in Sunnydale — one that may defeat Buffy without a fight. Spike supplies perspective. Season 6.

Title: Think and Grow Thin
Rating: PG-13
Word Count:  1200 999! Ha!
Characters: Spike/Buffy, Dawn, Xander, Anya
Prompt: Zombies
A/N: Sequel to Flesh and Bone.

Title: Let Nothing Ye Dismay
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 350
Pairing: Spike/Harmony
Summary: It’s Christmas Eve in Season 5, and Harmony is inspired to deck the halls.

Title: Nothing to Dread
Rating: NC17
Word Count: 1500
Pairing: Spike/Drusilla
Summary: It's Christmas Eve a month after Buffy dropped an organ on him, and Spike still isn’t feeling it. Dru has a plan to raise his spirits and hers.

I also did a Spike/Sally macro for [info]littlespikes, 'cos we absolutely need more BtVS/Nightmare Before Christmas crossover material, even if it's kinda tasteless.

I only posted 9 stories, which is low for me, but my word count was similar to previous years. That's because my WIP (Fire in the Soul) is much longer than my usual, and I didn't write even one drabble last year. Also unlike last year, Spike appeared in all but one story. He got to spend time with lots of lovelies — Dru, Nikki, Harmony, and Buffy. Everything was Gen or Het, with only the slightest whiff of Slash off in the distance. I'm not so thrilled about that, and I'm not sure why. Everything was written for communities: genfic_minis, seasonal_spuffy, still_grrr via[personal profile] snickfic 's Crackficathon, sb_fag_ends, and noel_of_spike. Thanks, comms. You're the greatest.

I have lots of things started, including at least four that are nearly done. I just have to stop spending all my spare time reading work by my betters and finish what I've got. Also, I am lazy, lazy, lazy. Kristen Bell's new sloth? I could SO be that.
