From the pile of WIP...

So, I have a lot of in-progress fic projects (in various degrees of in-progress-ness) and now that Beloved is finally squared away I thought I'd have a quick poll on what people might want to read next.  Kind of a way of getting my priority list in order I guess?  This is by no means a guarantee that fic will be the next fic I finish and post, as I'm inclined to follow my strongest muse of the moment whenever I'm not posting (and there are varying length factors at work), but my current method is to open all of my WIPs at once and work through them alphabetically from the first tab, closing and moving on to next tab whenever I finish a scene or find myself stuck and uninspired.  But I thought it might be better if I figured out what people most want to read next, and at least tab through in that order instead, since I usually only get two or three tabs in during each sitting.  So!  Poll time!

I've excised any fics from this list that are still prone to abandonment - these are all things I'm pretty sure I'll get around to finishing/posting eventually, even if the timeline might be ridiculous for some of them.

Help Sin Decide WIP Fic Priority

More of those Xmas Giftfic fills (it's a little embarrassing to still be doing these in May but I want to fill at least a couple more.)
Avengers Symphony AU one-shot
Confessions of a Creator sequel to Fallacious Deity (Dissidia)
FFVII/Stargate SG-1 crossover (what the hell brain, whatever, it looks like it'll probably be mid-length, 7-10 chapters range)
Junjou Romantica Hiroki-centric fic (this one is decently far along, looks like it'll probably be around 15 chapters)
Another longer FFVII fic, Kunsel main character (this one will be a long time coming because I'm only a couple of chapters in and I have no idea how long it's going to be yet, but probably in the same ballpark as Beloved and Fifth Act)
None of these, I choose the mystery WIP pile!

I dedicate less time for fanfic in general these days so might as well make sure that time gets spent well.

I finally settled on the Christmas fics, but tbh, I was very split between that, the Kunsel fic and the CotC Fallacious Deity sequel. I think I mostly went the Xmas fic route bc my longfic-attention's being pulled by Homestuck these days rather than FFVII, ahahahaha. xD why do I foresee the h/s section of my rec list growing to the size of FFVII's? |D;;;

Heh, that's quite fair enough, people shift fandoms, but thanks for sharing your thoughts!

Oh my God! I've just been scouring the 'net for a decent FFVII/Stargate crossover and then you put this poll up? --tears hair out-- Nooooo! Now I'll never get to sleep. I'll be fantasizing about your incredible, amazing fic-writing skills and dying of anticipation, waiting to see which fic wins the poll. --bites nails off--

EDIT: ...Wait...you finished Beloved, didn't you? --gasps-- I lost the internet for so long I completely forgot about it, and it's past 4am! I have to go to bed, but I want to go read it now. --whimper--

LOL, good to hear that I'm not the only person who gets weirdly specific crossover cravings sometimes! XD Don't worry, I will eventually get around to posting it even if it doesn't poll well - and please don't build up your expectations too much, the cast or nature of the crossover might not align with your hopes and then that would be super disappointing!

I did indeed finish Beloved a couple of weeks ago, not to worry though, it'll still be there in the morning. :) Sleep well!

Talk about not making it an easy decision but I'm figuring for clearing some of your awaiting prompts where I know a few of us suggested Kunsel, we'll get some of him soon. So giftfics got my vote. Second choice is Kunsel's own story. What do you need to bribe him with so he becomes your most talkative muse? *grin*
May. 4th, 2013 05:51 am (UTC)
LOL, I believe there was only the one prompt featuring Kunsel in the lot? I'm not sure if I'll get to that one but with that in mind I'll try to bump it up the Xmas fic sub-list. :)

I voted giftfic, but it was really close between that and FFVII/SG1. That combo sounds amaaaaaaaazing.
May. 4th, 2013 12:25 pm (UTC)
I am genuinely surprised by how many people are interested in that combo! I thought for sure I'd be the only one.
May. 4th, 2013 07:31 pm (UTC)
Voted for Junjou because it's rare I see an meaningful fic on this fandom and Hiroki is one of my favourite characters, I'm sure that if you pull this off it'll be fantastic =D
May. 5th, 2013 04:50 am (UTC)
I have no idea how Junjou fans will receive this fic when I start posting it, but thank you for the vote of confidence! It's always a little scary approaching a fic in a fandom you've never posted in before.
May. 5th, 2013 04:27 am (UTC)
So I said giftfic because there were so many prompts that I liked in there, but the FFVII/SG1 crossover looked interesting despite the only thing I know about SG1 is what a StarGate is. The Fallacious Deity sequel would be amazing too.

So in order,
Fallacious Deity Sequel,
Avengers Symphony,
and finally Junjou

Cheers for your thoughts anon.

I didn't expect so many people to want more giftfic! The quality of my output always feels like such a crapshoot on those. But guess I'll have to tackle a few more of those than originally planned. :)

Beloved!verse alternate escape from WRO?
When are you going to write that? XP I would really really love to see it! Cross-dressing cloud never gets old.

Re: Beloved!verse alternate escape from WRO?
Don't know, sorry! I'll do my best to get to it, but I don't make any promises on filling all of them. And I have to be honest, as endlessly awesome as cross-dressing Cloud is, I'm struggling to write that without repeating myself, since I've tackled that trope quite a few times now...

I picked Xmas gift fics (in MAY! *snicker*), but my 2nd choice would be the SG-1 crossover, as that strikes me as a very unusual idea and I'd like to see what you have in mind. The Kunsel idea also sounds interesting so that would be my #3 pick.

May. 6th, 2013 02:15 am (UTC)
LOL I should have set up a preferential voting system! But cheers for the extra input, that seems to be the way the wind of opinion is blowing.
May. 5th, 2013 08:07 pm (UTC)
Well, I vote for

1. Xmas Giftfic in May

2. FFVII fic, Kunsel main character

3. FFVII/Stargate SG-1

because I still want to see JenovaxCloud at some point :P
May. 6th, 2013 02:20 am (UTC)
I should just hold them all back and post them in July, right? Xmas in July. XD That way we can pretend it's intentional and not just that I'm tardy.

Not making promises on individual giftfic fills, I'm definitely not going to get to all of them (there were a LOT of prompts, the most yet, if I were to do all of them it would take half the year), but thanks for the input!

Well, I'm curious about the Kunsel fic, even if I barely know his character (I know him because of your fics. basically XD). Is it going to be a fic in the past or in the present? (I'm not sure if he is alive). So, I'm letting my curiosity choose for me ^^.
May. 9th, 2013 01:55 pm (UTC)
It's more of a what-if, actually! Heh, he's a pretty minor character, I cannot explain why I have latched on to him so. The fic will be a long time coming though since it's still early stages.
May. 14th, 2013 03:45 pm (UTC)
You can't do this. You can't tease a fellow Aussie with a FFVI/Stargate fic and not expect there to be consequences!

I already check your LJ like four times a day, now I'm going to be checking it like every hour. You've even draw me out of lurker-Dom!

(...but really, I love your fics and i'll probably read everything you post anyway.)
May. 15th, 2013 09:00 am (UTC)
XD Thank you, but please don't check that often for your own sake! I'm lucky if I update once a fortnight these days. Or you can track tags on LJ too I think, to get e-mail notifs when there's an update tagged 'fanfiction' for example.

I'm a little concerned now though about the anticipation for this! I'm pretty sure what I'm writing is absolutely nothing like what people are imagining. Now I'm afraid you'll all be horribly disappointed! Ah well.
