Seriously, oh my word, my opinions on this...?  ?_?  I felt like I needed to set up a poll, like, how do I choose...?  ?_?  Haha.  I'm not qualified to make these decisions!  I just wrote them! 

...Oh writing, how you move me.


2009 Fic Meme

Total Word Count: 403,956 (posted) and... 501,179 including everything I have yet to post/finish  .... ._.

Fandoms Written in: Super Junior, ...and Super Junior/Epik High I suppose

Favorite Fic: For Always  (Zhou Mi/Kyuhyun, Siwon/Hankyung, Henry/Donghae - PG-13)
This is probably not a shock to anyone.  It's the longest thing I've ever written, at over 140,000 words (over 1/3 of my posted word count).  It was more or less me writing my internal wish fulfillment.  It had kids, slow get together... I will, when I have a thought, go back and read pieces of this.  Four or five chapters at a time, or sometimes all of it, even.  I'll remember a scene, say... Zhou Mi running over in his pajamas to rescue Kyuhyun from his bad dreams, or their first date, or SiHan's first kiss, or the first time Kyuhyun stayed over, or HenHae's first kiss, and then just have to go read that scene and get lost reading multiple chapters.  It's not perfect, and I still find typos or things in general that could've been clearer/tighter/better, but I really... I love this fic.  I love it so much that I sometimes feel guilty for it, lol.  It started out from the desire to give Kyu and Mi a long fic of their own, and really... became so much more.  <3

Best Fic: The Life I Live (Zhou Mi/Kyuhyun - R)
I wibbled on this as I went up and down the list.  There were others that I was proud of, happy with, etc.  But I think, overall, this was one of the tightest ones.  I really immersed myself in the fire for this one, eating and sleeping and breathing it for a while.  To where when I closed my eyes I pictured the tiger, and even now still do... Hence part of the third story.  I really ended up happy with it.  <3

Most Underappreciated Fic: ...I don't know.  ;_;  The KyuMin?  Posting on a holiday will do that to you.  And my SiHan.  D:  I talk a lot about the QMi on here, but SiHan has my heart.  I love those fics... Collide and Permanent and Transmission and The Air I Breathe...

Most Fun Fic: Rundown (Zhou Mi/Kyuhyun - R)
Baseball.  XD  Oh, how the strange ways our minds go.  I was expecting SiHan's to be first, but I take what I can get.  It's a good and solid bet that I'm weak to kidfics in almost any form, but it was really only a matter of time until QMi got one.  And I really loved this fic.  :\  This fic challenged, it made me happy, made me squee, and it made me sad.  It was such fun to write, and... Seriously, could've been twice as long.  Sigh.  I love that AU.  <3

Sexiest Fic: Not including that fic I don't claim as my own, I don't... ....I have no idea.  Rundown had some sexy scenes.  There were the KiHae fics, too...

Fic that Shifted My Own Perceptions of the Characters: Er, I have no idea.  Possibly For Always, with the HenHae, though.

Fic I'm Most Proud of: ...See the first one, haha.  In addition to being the longest, I just... For Always sums up my year.

Biggest Disappointment:  Not getting a couple of fics done that I meant to.  :(  And all of them have little mistakes and just...general errors, I mean.  Things could be better by far.  But, onwards and upwards.

Biggest Surprise: The Other Side (Zhou Mi/Girl!Kyuhyun - R) (Also, the prequel Special Performance and also the sequel The Fifth Melody)
I have never really written a long genderswitched fic, and though I enjoy writing het immensely... The memory of Special Performance sort of percolated in the back of my head, and one night I was talking to Kei (I could say this so many times)... and I started blabbering and typing out lines of The Other Side. And thus.  We had fic.

2:47:09 AM Jen: ....oh yeah
2:47:15 AM Jen: also
2:48:33 AM Kei: also?
2:48:45 AM Jen: I did not spin off that smut genderswitch into "Mi goes back to china for a while and kyu finds she's pregnant and goes like D: cause Mi isn't coming home for a couple months and she doesn't want to tell him over the phone and things ensue" in my head
2:49:13 AM Kei: ............................................
2:49:23 AM Kei: DID NOT, MY ASS
2:49:48 AM Kei: XD
2:51:38 AM Kei: .. i'm hoping that by "did not", you actually meant that you did and that i will see this soon.
2:51:55 AM Kei: DDDDD:
2:51:59 AM Kei: ;___;
2:52:51 AM Jen: maybe ;_;
2:53:01 AM Kei: \o///
2:53:07 AM Kei: then, all is right with the world
2:56:00 AM Jen: kyu being a little emotional
2:56:22 AM Jen: and mi wanting to know if it's a girl or boy and kyu being all "I didn't want to find out till you were here ;_;"
2:56:47 AM Kei: wow. inject that estrogen
2:56:48 AM Kei: XD
2:57:02 AM Jen: I'm going to live up the het while I can dangit
2:57:13 AM Kei: yeahhhhh
2:57:23 AM Kei: cause it's slash smut abounds from here on out
2:57:29 AM Jen: for serious
3:05:18 AM Jen: anyway
3:05:25 AM Jen: I'll not write that while I'm sleeping :|
3:05:35 AM Jen: kyu will haunt me
3:06:04 AM Jen: Kyu:  What do you mean I'm giving birth to a boy (or two).... Excuse me??
3:06:14 AM Jen: Me:  Stop wearing wigs >(

...I was then awake for the next hour writing what I said I wasn't going to.  :|  At 3AM.

Hardest Fic to Write: Anything involving smut, haha.

Fic I Want Remembered: Any of them that made people smile.  <3

Looking back, did you write more fic than you thought you would this year, less, or about what you'd predicted?:   So...much...more.  I don't even.  So much more.

Goals for Next Year: To post up these almost finished ones, and finish the HenHae and HanKyu and various and sundry.  And keep on writing~

Fic I Wrote in 2009:

Totally snagged from my Master Fic List. I think that makes 31 individual fics... Not including individual ficlets. ...Unless the Hanchul, there are... anyway. A few more. I'm not counting chapters. :| There were a lot. (Okay, I counted... so like, 99? Or... I give up. A lot.)

It started out from the desire to give Kyu and Mi a long fic of their own
Ironic, since it took Qmi FOREVER to get a plot in the first place. :p You were all "la-dee-da writing Sihan... Qmi needs plot... will figure it out eventually... la-dee-da Sihan have kids!"

*eyes the giant list* Yes. See, you got way too ahead of me. ;__;

...How did you not end up killing me during those plotting stages? I remember those emails. Me: I think that's it. Oh but wait! *blabs on for six more paragaphs* *___*

My 5k of SiHan while I figured out what the heck Mi was doing in that back room. XD

rotf The worst one was when you were halfway through and I suddenly got the email that said WHAT IF THERE WAS A FIRE?! and I thought NO! but wrote YES! ♥

So Zhou Mi sends him persistent letters and then shows up and weasels his way into the back room.... do we really need to know why?

*cries with laughter* ...I seriously need to post that email or something because that was an epic paragraph of whatever. Gracious. That added like, what, at least 40-50k to the story? _-_ And didn't I catch you like just before you were going to sleep, too? lol. :| Oh man.

He just wants to, okay! He likes books! XD

I don't even know where to find it. I have an entire month's worth of emails only titled "Re: DBSK Tour" and I know they have NOTHING to do with DBSK. :|

However I did just randomly select one and it led me to this:
Word count... 90,115. ...Have I advanced the plot any at all yet? You said 100k and I went eye rolling.

Can I laugh at you? For all the times you laughed at me for saying 100k and 150k? Please?

I have part of it, but not all of it. D: Here's the first line though, if it might help you search: I totally thought the baby would be in a spinoff since I didn't want it to be All SiHan All the Time, until Kyuhyun's dad popped up and went "HEY, me!" like two seconds ago.  Me:  OMG.  *whine*  Go away!

I've apparently lost an entire week of emails that included that. :| Bahh.

lol... you can laugh at me. You put UP with me after all. XD (I really had no concept of how long it'd be, clearly. D:)

Found it~! In which I replied "OMG GENG! JEN IS SO EVIL!" And as I read this again, your tone is totally "AND BLOOD IS SPATTERING AND IT'S WONDERFUL AND I LOVE THIS MWAHAHAHA"

(run-on paragraph of doom is an understatement)

Yay! *adds Yunjoong to cast lol* I totally thought the baby would be in a spinoff since I didn't want it to be All SiHan All the Time, until Kyuhyun's dad popped up and went "HEY, me!" like two seconds ago. Me: OMG. *whine* Go away! Angstypants Kyumi anyone. :| With a side of SiHan inherits another kid? ....Dangiiiit. What if Kyu's daddy left to protect he and his mom? Like, he'd gotten a hold of a book (a true addict, not unlike a gambler in the "do anything" mentality...) through some shifty channels, and got an offer to get rid of the problem by relocating to China for a while, while it all calms down... So the real reason that Kyu's mom was checking to make sure Kyu was in his bed two or three times a night wasn't because hubby left (good riddance) but that she knew there were some unsavory characters and wanted to make sure they didn't touch her baby. By the time Kyu's been in college a year or two, that worry fades down... he's grown, things are calm, and she marries someone and moves away, having done her job. Kyu's still emotionally altered by that point, though. My guess is Kyu's dad wants something... one of the books or something, maybe (and see if that nice Chinese boy had managed to get his paws on the books, too). maybe something more. (gah, more plot to figure out. x.x)... of course when he gets there, he sees Kyu, and is all "Son!" and Kyuhyun, who is standing by Zhou Mi is just floored, reaching for Zhou Mi's hand... and his dad sees immediately that 2+2=4 and punches Zhou Mi, cause that's not why he sent him there, etc, etc... (omg, save me. ;_;) Zhou Mi gets a nice black eye out of the deal and Kyu kicks his dad out and is just totally undone wondering what the heck the man wants, to just come in and hit someone. (Zhou Mi: *touches eye* My students will think I'm the coolest thing ever. Kyu: ...I hate you sometimes.) o.o what if someone tries to burn the bookstore?! Maybe not like fully, but more of a warning, like a great big pile of books (new ones, not the old rare ones) from the store, in a pile in the kitchen that gets put out almost immediately. And whoever did it breaks some of the clay animals Zhou Mi bought. :( And Kyu is just... so angry and upset and Zhou Mi's like, I can get you more, but it's not the same... not the same. These people are probably not very happy Kyu's dad is back... trying to send him a warning or something, get off their turf... Maybe some kind of showdown. *________* If they try to extract from Kyu where his father is... if they have guns... *_______* If they burst into the store when SiHan + kids are there. *_____* Geng makes Yunjee lay flat on the floor behind one of the big reading chairs, putting the baby with her to keep them out of harm's way... Siwon (tae kwon do master) is trying to see if he can take someone out... They know his father's not there, but they want to see if Kyu knows anything. *____* Siwon gets the one guy, and Kyu (hurting in some way by then) takes out the other by swinging a big old reference book at his head... But someone might get a shot off before they're totally incapacitated. ;____: Geeeng. Just a glancing shot maybe... off side or shoulder... but Yunjee is screaming and blood spattered on the baby's blanket. *____* He has the presence of mind to try and comfort the kids before Siwon can get to him. *weeps off in the corner* Sorry Geng... (Also DON"T KILL ME! He's OKAY!) And if Kyu didn't have a reason to hate his dad before. *__*;;;; (And I was thinking I was going to try and get them to make up, but I don't know HOW if something like that happens. *___*;;;;;; Kyumi are probably having some ups and downs in the middle of it all, too, and this is the run-on paragraph of doom.


...I just say here for like 30 minutes typing that out in a daze.

And the next email goes:

OMG, what if Donghae is like, somehow connected. *clutches head* Like there's this cute kid (Henry) who's in a class with him, and he works in this store, but his uncle's brother's cousin's neighbor's nephew (or something) is the people circling around and he gets concerned that they'll pull something and is all "OMG, Henry, don't go to work today. ;_; Spend the day with me!" and then Henry's later like, waitaminute... something's, er, "fishy" here...

:( The things I miss when I have friends that drink. haha. XD Sort of.

I love our conversations XDDD It's actually very very odd how IIIIII was the one that pushed for more het!qmi :| Of all ppl... -stares at you-

But I must say, I won't tell you how many times i've reread baseball au (in hopes... imagining... things... maybe... things... waiting...), or the het XD I would say it's embarrassing, but obviously it's not because I'm sort of proud of you for writing it. You're proud of For Always, and I love it the most too because we became friends over it XDDD -- HENHAE. But I'll admit that baseball!au and ze het, as well as Collide, is more ;_;♥ inducing because we had such awesome conversations from those. kekeke 8D

And about TV. I should watch more TV. That way it won't just be you telling me these random things that just make me lol or DDD: without understanding XD

We had conversations about the baseball AU and...your hopes....I think. XD The SiHan has possibilities perhaps. <3<3 Those were some conversations, man. <3 ...And are and will be some conversations, man. XD (And then you got a life on me! :P But then...soon I'll have to sleep earlier for work ;_;)

TV is a colossal waste of timeeee, don't do itttt! Okay. Maybe one show or something. XD XD

I have hopes for Sihan baseball, yes I do. 8DDD But Priorities. Henhae! and things. lol, and het. me? yeah ikr. But you write het how I like it. so. haha. XD What could we do? And you did your fair share of encouraging (although my word count could never match yours) XD

If we were within quick traveling distance of each other, I don't think we'd ever sleep. 8D Or if we did, we'd sleep involuntarily -passes out-

<3<3 The little corner of happy. Sigh. (...This here is just this little thing I'd been poking at. Siwon's pov was so rare. *_*)


He had no guarantee of Hangeng’s feelings, but he did. He did. The memory of the way he had looked when he saw Siwon for the first time face to face, that sort of wonder. To see that smile, directed at Kyuhyun that morning had made every dream he had dreamed solidify.

He had been so long alone, standing on his own. He had his parents. He had his daughter. And she brought him such joy, and such worry. And then there was Hangeng, who was smart and while dreaming, so tempered to the world. He had not been lying when he had said he was starved for adult contact. The Hangeng who laughed at him and understood his jokes. The man who got down onto the floor to play with a puppy and his daughter without fearing for his dignity. The man who, when hugged, held him back with such care. He needed that. He needed all of that, with this man. It was insane, to feel so much, so quickly.

His body, the lilt of his accent…

He had never had an equal before.

I think that my favorite of all the stories you've writtenhqve to be either the Kihae baseball fic or the animal verse. I'm, um, really excited for the new one? Like, you have no idea. It has Kihae. And Kihae makes me happy. XD I also loved your Blohyuk fic, they don't get enough love ;__; And I'm looking forward to the Hankyu, yes I am. <3

Baseball. <3 Those fics were such fun. And animal verse... The new one is getting closer to being done! *___* I hope it'll be worth the wait~ It's been such fun writing for KiHae and Blohyuk. <3 I will try to keep working away. Gotta order my fingers to keep moving, hehe~ <3
