Writer's Meme: Sometimes it's ok to pimp yourself out. 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.


Well, as I was tagged by [livejournal.com profile] sangerin, here we go:


1. Peace Comes to the Chalet School. It's hard to argue against the first book I've had published and one that took up two (very emotional) years of my life. I'm so proud of this work for many reasons and it's been a major inspiration in me going on to do my PhD in English (Creative Writing).
2. Unfinished Business (Pretender Virtual Series). Of all the episodes I wrote for the Pretender Virtual Series, this was my favourite episode (although Chamber of Horrors comes a close second). In this story I introduced one of my best characters - Jacob - and also expanded several others who were a lot of fun. It was also my first successful experiment with having several different genres in one episode - romance, action-adventure, family relationships and, of course, major character development.
3. Mysterious Connections. I loved writing this story and I still enjoy rereading it when I need to be reminded about why I got into writing Pretender stuff in the first place. It was my first major experimentation without the safety net of bringing in a new character and I'm still happy with the way it went, even when I'm losing my satisfaction with some of the other things I wrote at the same time.
4. Survival of the Fittest. Although this isn't finished, I'm having a lot of fun with it. It's a cross-over with a difference, as I get to introduce a whole lot of original characters who can do and be all sorts of things. This is also the first time that (so far, at least) I have not peeped into Jarod's head in some way. It's all from the perspective of other people.
5. CSP: Crime Scene Pretender. I was really into CSI when I wrote this and I'm very happy with the way it turned out. It also interested me in writing murder mysteries, and I have all sorts of ideas that, I am hoping, will eventually settle down into a basic storyline that I can get done.

I'm glad people are enjoying this! Here's chapter two. In an attempt to avoid confusion, I am including a list of the tribe members and will cross them off as they are eliminated.

Howdy, Pretender fans! Remember me? Well, I have at last got off my substantial rear end and written more of a fic I first posted in October IN 2005!! *le sigh*

At that time I put the beginning of a cross-over story of The Pretender and Survivor, set in Fiji. Well it now turns out that the next series of Survivor will be on - Fiji. (Who'd a thunk it?)

I would like to announce that I came up with this idea years ago!! Humph! Just in case you doubt me, my original post can be found here. To avoid the possibility that any of my ideas for how the show might be played out are the same as the 'real thing', I suppose I will now be posting the story as it gets written. And thus, without much further ado...


Survival of the Fittest )


More will be forthcoming, but comments would be nice. *smiles sweetly and hides bloodstained axe*
