What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January?
Chanyeol/Suho. It was a gift fic but idk out of all the pairings we were matched with I felt compelled to write chanho haha ALSO I WROTE HAIKYUU!! FLASHFIC WITH TSUKKIYAMA LIKE WTH EVEN. I haven’t even written aosaku u_u
What's your own favorite story of the year?
none??!?!?! Is this a possible option? My writing this year was just sloppy, especially since I somewhat changed my writing style and for me, it’s understandable that I wouldn’t like anything at all since everything is a bit new and badly needs improvement.
Did you take any writing risks this year? What did you learn from them?
HAHAHAHAHAHA YES! 2 to be exact. 1, i wrote porn. NOT JUST ANY PORN. CHANHO PWP KIND OF PORN. I learned that I could do it? I mean it was a big risk all on it’s own that I just kind of flopped around when it happened. I also realized, I had a long way to go before I could write NC-17 well and write it without cringing.
2, i wrote for nanowrimo. 50k yo. It turned out chaptered too like wow. really proud of myself. I haven’t gone over it yet so I can’t really say for sure what I’ve learned. But from just the experience, I learned to push myself to get something done. I realized I could handle big word counts and 50k isn’t such a scary thing.
Do you have any fanfic or profic goals for the new year?
Write more for my own ideas. I’ve written a lot for fic exchanges/other people/prompts of other people turned into mine. I need/want to focus on something I thought of myself without the push of other people or the weight of a deadline hanging over my head.

From my past year of writing, what was…
My best story of this year:
none? hasn’t been posted yet? idk? u___u swear. I really don’t know.
My most popular story of this year:
untitled tsukkiyama haha or or or Listen To Me
Most fun story to write:
Untie Me - probably because PWP and what isn’t fun about that? haha also because it wasn’t as stressing as writing the other stories which were long-ish and had very serious themes.
Story with the single sexiest moment:
The sorta breath play in Untie Me. I think the part where Chanyeol put his finger inside the ribbon and just tugged a little was really hot okay. the other smuts in other stories were too romantic to be hot.
Most "holy crap, that's wrong, even for you" story:
In the midst [...]. Idk. I hate this so much. I wish it didn’t exist sometimes. Cries. Everything about it, for me, is wrong.
Story that shifted my own perceptions of the characters:
Sick - it has something to do with headcanon. :( so it’s a secret.
Hardest story to write:
no hearts, no beats, just love - because it’s long and robot!au. I seriously wanted to end this sadly, REALLY. but suchen deserves a happiness they would never get in reality. also because of the theme/au, it made it hard? robot!au required futuristic settings and logical concepts and Science is my worst subject, KILL ME NOW. I kind of wish I could have made it longer to explore the setting, the whole universe but nvm ha ha ha
untitled tsukkiyama - the title of the post speaks for itself - and Untie Me - PORN. PWP PORN. AND SUYEOL. O___O IDE. haha
Most unintentionally telling story:
I think it would be ”I love you”. I literally told a story about the future of kyumin. THE FUTURE OF KYUMIN. And well, while it didn’t, wouldn’t come true. There was something very beautiful about it. Like this is what it could have been and I loved every bit of it. I’m also very sad that this is what it will always be, something that could have been.
Favorite Opening Lines / Introductions:
Kim Jongin is a man who does not know where to go or where he has come from. - Home is where you are
welps. that’s it. intros are my hardest thing tbh. i just can’t do intros. let’s not talk about it.
Favorite Closing Lines:
"We’re home." - untitled tsukkiyama
The third time Sungmin fell was the last time because when Kyuhyun caught him, he stopped falling. - The Three Times
"Good morning, Jongdae." - no hearts, no beats, just love
Favorite 5 Line(s) from Anywhere:
His toned body made Jongdae flush, especially as he tried not to look at the appendage between his android's legs. - no hearts, no beats, just love
“I need you. I want you,” Kyuhyun whispers as he pulls away, pinning Sungmin against the sheets, breath hot and needy against Sungmin’s skin.
Sungmin smiles up at him, caressing Kyuhyun’s face. “Then I’m all yours.” - ”I love you”
And then he hits the high note and Joonmyun thinks right then and there that he could die just listening to Kim Jongdae sing. - Addicted To You
Kyungsoo didn't know what hurt more, that Kai had taken Chen out for dinner instead of him or that Chen was physically out of the apartment but he was still holding onto Suho's heart. Because even as Kyungsoo was sitting in front of him, it was obvious Suho would rather it be Chen instead. - Behind The Scenes
but tbh this is so not my thing. remembering things, especially lines from my fics, isn’t something i do so well u_u.
Top 5 Scenes from Anywhere You Would Choose to Have Illustrated:
1. The scene in no hearts, no beats, just love where Jongdae listens to the depths of Suho’s chest every day before waking up. DESPITE THE FACT THAT HE HEARS NOTHING. ;_;
2. Tsukkiyama dancing in the kitchen of their new apartment.
3. The last scene in “I love you” where Kyuhyun leaves for work but Sungmin pulls him back to kiss him and Kyuhyun just gives in ;~~~~;
New year's resolutions:
- finish my own ideas
- write fics of my own ideas
- write more suchen that I can be proud of
- take a few more risks
