Awards: Fanworkrecs fic rec, Defying The Stereotype fic rec.
Notes: Duo POV.
This piece takes ranking with State of Emergency (ep 6) as my favourite. From Duo's manic inner monologue about flooring, to their discussion on how they first met the other pilots, to the D&M at the end, and the resulting Trowa catharsis and truth 'fess up... Everything just came together beautifully, and I'm so proud to have written it. Mad props to Stephanie on her beta of this fic, as well. I was so afraid of not getting down to the nuts and bolts of their D&M at the end... I didn't want to skimp on the emotion or just gloss over it. My first version lacked a lot of heart in that department, and Stephanie poked and prodded me in the right direction. The result is something I'm incredibly proud of.

Awards: Fanworkrecs fic rec, Defying The Stereotype fic rec.
Notes: Duo POV.
Out of all the Appearances series, this is probably my least favourite. I know what I was trying to do, but that didn't quite mesh to my end result. The two products were vastly different. I considered rewriting it completely while doing its revision, but decided that there was no way I could think of to actually fix it properly, and get it closer to my initial vision for this installment. Besides, even if I personally don't like it much, it does its job in furthering the story with these two, threads begun and continued in this run through later sections. I guess it'll just have to stay as one of my lesser favourites :)

Beta: DaMoyre.
Awards: Fanworkrecs fic rec, Defying The Stereotype fic rec.
Notes: Duo POV. The start of what has become a favourite series of mine, despite its rare character team-up.
I fully blame Aoi and Shoori from the defunct website Love Is A Battlefield for getting me into the Duo/Trowa combination. Because it's not a common pairing, I felt comfortable exploring it, and not feeling like I was rehashing things that had been done hundreds of times before.
The first 3 installments were very graciously recommended at some awesome sites, and I'm still so very chuffed at that. This series is the kind that doesn't get a lot of feedback, but when it does, it's wonderful and very thoughtful.

Beta: Tink
Awards: Excellence In Character Development
Notes: The point where I was truly lost... where my writing of vamp!Tybalt from TiH finally graduated to human!Tybalt in BMB. My world was never the same, and neither was my BMB fic :) Very few people liked Tybalt at this stage of the game, and I actually remember being quite worried about backlash from Mik/Harl shippers at the time.

Word Count: 2525

Beta: Kita
Awards: Best Series - Slashfan's Choice Awards
Notes: Alternating Spike and Angel POV. As part of 'A Very DOOUL Christmas', Kita and Jess, the amazing authors of DOOUL asked a bunch of other A/S authors to contribute to their most awesome series. Each section was named after a well-known carol, and I picked this one. It was so much fun to write, and challenging to make sure my style matched the style of the series in general (i had to arc up the funny, I think they're funnier than me :D) It was a thrill to be asked to participate (Kita being my long-time talented beta of any Buffy or Angel fic), and equally thrilling to receive a little toy surprise from them when DOOUL took out 'best series' that year in the SFCA. If you're reading this and you've somehow never read DOOUL, follow the link at the top of this page, and laugh yourself sick. You will not be sorry.
