5 favorite fics meme

Gakked from ithildyn, raine_wynd, and some other folks.

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.

I have learned two things from working on this meme. First, I really do like a lot of my own work. Second, despite a hankering for happy endings, it's the stories where the characters suffer that are nearest to my heart.

1) The Price of Interference Highlander novella (R)
Because this is the first piece of fanfiction I ever wrote, and I still love it to bits. I like the opening scene, I love my OC Jean-Pierre, Joe's music is wound all the way through it, and I really like the way Joe reveals so much about himself as he tells the story of James Horton. The fact that I can be proud of the first piece of fiction I wrote in decades is due to mackiedockie's tireless and patient beta work.

2) Dissonance, Highlander (PG-13)
Because this sparse and elegant short story winds the tension tighter and tighter around the reader's throat.

3) Guilty Until Proven Innocent, due South novella, (R)
Because it only took two tiny twists of canon to produce this AU. Because Ray Kowalski's voice was already so close to a world-weary PI that the noir just flowed. Because I can still see Fraser sketching in that courtroom. Because betrayal, grief, hope and redemption are some of my favorite themes. And I love the fact that I have two posted endings for this, and some people really prefer the dark one.

4) Black Ice, due South, (PG)
Because I love Fraser's voice in this story, so lyrical and melancholy.

5) Olive Branch, Highlander (PG-13)
Because it's a flashback tale of loss, grief, and vengeance. I love that my beta dswdiane forced me through a rewrite which completely changed the pacing of the story and doubled it's length. The end result is so much better.

LOL! You and me both!

1, 2, & 5 are some of my all time favourite HL stories, just so you know. I love your writing. The mood you set appeals to me.

Thanks, ith!

Maybe we should start a support group - Angst Queens Anonymous.
