Baby Czech boys

I forgot to say it to you on AIM tonight, but thank you very much for the card (and cards), pipinghell! I really enjoyed the Shark tunnel picture. :)

Was fun watching the baby hockey players today. They are young, but most of them don't look it. *leches after baby!Czech goalie*

Not such a fun hockey day. Sharks lost, Ducklings lost, Canucks lost, Bolts lost, Stars lost... but the Flyers and Oilers won? :P

Haven't read the recap of the Sharks game (and it wasn't televised at all), but from the stats, it looks like the Sharks put in a good effort, but Passmore was really good? Not unhappy about that--happens to all teams.

Stole a survey thingie from tamiflu. I never do these because I'm lazy, but this one had interesting questions that I thought would be useful to ponder and articulate the answer to. :P

Year in Writing, 2003

Looking back, did you write more fic than you thought you would this year, less, or about what you'd predicted?

Umm, I wrote 29 fics, and 5 complete series, and 2 incomplete series, and yet I have the general feeling that I've written less than the amount I wanted to? *grin*

What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January 2003?
Hatcher/Fischer. *cringe* Foppa/Hinote. Never thought I'd ever write Hatcher or Foppa. Sens fic. (Fucking Sens)

What's your favorite story of the year? Not the most popular, but the one that makes you happiest.
*ponders* I don't think any of them made me really happy, exactly. I think they all lacked that... earnestness(?) that was present in fics I wrote last year? I'm not sure. Maybe it's just that it's not new to me anymore? I like to do new stuff. :P

Perversely, I might actually like Playing With Fire the most because it made me uncomfortable and embarrassed. ;)

Did you take any writing risks this year? (See above for unexpected pairings, etc.) What did you learn from them?
I wrote Kariyacest for Robyn's birthday (Crossing the Line) and I'd never written incest before. This also made me uncomfortable. Yeah, and Playing With Fire because, umm, Hatcher/Fischer hurt sex? *twitch*

I learned that I like to be uncomfortable!

Umm, seriously though, I think there's a certain level of discomfort and/or embarrassment I have to feel about fics I write for them to have an impact.

Do you have any fanfic or profic goals for the New Year?
To be very uncomfortable when I write!

To write new things--new genres, new styles; to have better focus when I write, whether it's the one situation, or emotion, or sentiment or even just the one line at the end I'm writing the fic to reach (which is how I wrote Supernova).

Finish Cerulean Sky, Ice Cream Assassin and Bare It All. And possibly Right On Time while Guerin and Downey and mini-Mo are still in Dallas. ;)

Aww you mentioned the Stars. So sweet. [loves]

I should be so much nicer to your Sharks. I just can't bring myself to it, yet. My friend's been rubbing their wins in my face. [cries]

Dude, it's hard because of the whole division rival thing. Like the standings are all pretty close right now, so it seriously messes with my feelings for the teams, LOL!

The thing is we haven't won against any of the teams that are higher than us in the standings. I think it's really the ties that could have been losses that are helping us points-wise. Stars have 2 more wins than we do.

Yeah.. we can't survive after OT... hell we can't even survive TO OT.. so yeah that's one advantage the Sharks have there.

*giggle* We've been to OT like 14 times and have never won. :P

Well they still got a bunch of ties.. which we don't.

baby Czech goalie is yumy (I paid attention this morning) :)

*giggle* Yay! He's pretty painful to look at. *grin*

You're welcome! I had a real problem with yours...usually I put a team celebrating and canoodling on there, but for some ungodly reason, I had none of the Sharks, which was odd, to say the least...and I had a few Shark players, but they were either a Leaf *coughNolancough* or in another uni, like Primeau. So, I went with that pic, I've always thought it was damn cool looking. Thanks for your card, too! (I know I haven't thanked you, I've been MEANING to make a massive 'thanks' post, and I will, oh I will...)

That was a great choice--it's an awesome picture! :D

You're very welcome! :)

OMG..shit..that Downey piece was going to have Filth and Mini-Mo in it?

Hot damn.


*grin* Yup! And other assorted Stars, but those were the main characters. :)
