White Knight Awards!

I want to thank whoever it was that nominated two of my stories for the 2013 round of the White Knight Awards!  Both Xandercles the Mighty, and Where Dirty Wrong Things Meet were nominated, and I'm very grateful for your thoughts.  You made my day. 

For those who are curious, here are links to my fic:
Xandercles the Mighty at LJ, and at AO3 in the Epic Fic category
Where Dirty Wrong Things Meet at LJ, and at AO3 in the Viking in the Sack category (PWPs)

For those of you who want to know more, here's some info on the White Knight Awards, which are for Xander-centric stories.  The categories are occasionally confusing, so you can read all about them on the Categories page, and the rules are found on the Rules page...handy that.

Please note that:  All votes must be accompanied by the code phrase demon magnet. Votes which do not include this code phrase will be discarded.  I wasn't sure we could just post that info on our journals, but I've seen three other people do it already, so I decided to join the crowd.  *g*

Now I'm not telling you to go vote for me, because where would be the fun in that?  I expect you to go look over the nominations, and read some stories.  (Then you can vote for me.  *g*)  I'm not counting on anything, there are some exceptional writers on the list of nominees, and I feel honored simply to be mentioned among them.  

I just noticed that there are no links to the nominees or their stories, so if anyone wants, I have links to many of them, and would be glad to share.  I thought about mentioning some of my favorites, but I changed my mind.  Ask me by PM or email, and I'll be glad to tell you what I think.  But then, I have some reading to do, because there are those I've been meaning to get to, and haven't yet, so I need to catch up before I vote. 

Don't forget: the last day of voting is Oct. 31st!  Just ten more days.  So read and enjoy, guys, and then GO VOTE!

Year End Review Time

Time for the "Fic What Dusty Wrote Last Year" post!

I don't always do one of these, but I'm trying to figure out what I wrote, since it seems like the only thing I wrote all year was Xandercles.  I know that can't be right, so I'm going to sort it out in a post.  Make it official and all that.

ETA: okay, I just added them all together, and I wrote over 188,000 words in 2012.  Day-um.  82k of that is Xandercles alone, and Lost Souls (Oz Big Bang) accounts for another 59k.  Add in Monstrous, which was 21k, and that leaves 26,000 words to divide up into 16 stories.  That averages out to about 1600 words a story, and since many of them were ficlets of under 1k, a couple of longer fic obviously carried the extra wordage... 

I have to credit tamingthemuse for most of this - only four of these stories do not have TtM prompts attached, and I'm pretty damn sure I used some during Oz Big Bang, even if they didn't make it to the notes.  Writing at least 500 words a week for the prompt they supplied helped keep me on target.  So if anyone needs to light a fire under their muse, I recommend it.

Of course, the actual ideas that got the stories moving were usually prompted by ozsaur, with occasional brilliance from my other cohort in crime, trillingstar.  Those two are definitely my heroes and shit.  They've both been super supportive this year.  I'm a lucky person to have them as friends.

So, I guess I have a goal to aim for beat this year, then, huh?  *g*  Maybe I'll aim at 200k for this year's total.

Anyway, here we go!

All Your Words Are Belong To Us )
