The writing meme.

Been tagged by muffytaj to do this meme:

Post a list of your top five favorite fics you've written, regardless of fandom or the reason you love them. This isn't about the BEST things you've written, but what you LOVE most. Then tag five other people to do the same.

I'll ignore the tagging five other people part because even though I might look it, I'm not evil. And I wish the meme were about what other people have written, because (a) I strongly dislike all my stuff and (b) I really haven't posted that many stories, and even less of those are actually finished.

Nexus [Sesshoumaru/Kagome] When I wrote this I approached it like I would painting a picture, and it shows. The imagery is some of the best I've written, although I cringe regularly at the cutesy bit in the end where my inner fangirl briefly escapes to summarily slaughter Sesshoumaru's character.

Hourglass [Urahara/Yoruichi] Another story that's more painted than written. I loved the idea of showing a vulnerable Yoruichi, and Urahara is the only one she would permit herself to show weakness to, so he's along for the ride. And there's actual sex in this, which is rare for me. It's not explicit, though. While I do write quite a bit of smut, I'm laughably afraid to post it.

Serendipity [Kakashi/Kagome] My amour fou when it comes to pairings, so wildly unlikely it actually qualifies as crack. The story itself has some good bits as well as a lot of cringeworthy ones that need to be rewritten; it's also still unfinished, to my everlasting shame. One of these days...

The Eye of the Beholder [Sesshoumaru, Jaken] My one sad attempt at writing something funny. A failed effort, but it still holds a special place in my heart.

Waiting For Hiko [Hiko] My one Rurouni Kenshin story is based on the premise that Hiko is in fact the fairy king Oberon, who has escaped to Japan for some peace and quiet. The series offers enough star-crossed lovers so there's a bit of A Midsummer Night's Dream in there, too, along with some nefarious fairy plot or other.

The story suffers from brief but virulent attacks of fangirl Japanese and the too-convoluted plot. I wish I had actually had the perseverence to finish this one, but the underlying plot was inherently Mary-Sueish, so I ran. Shame on me.
