I also did a Spike/Sally macro for 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 viasnickfic '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.
