Whee!
Have registered for writercon - am all official-like.

Now I just have to figure out which story to submit to the archive. I'm a whee bit torn, because slash are me and I are slash, but if I'm going for my bestest thing written ever? That's...probably... The Waking, which is only slashy in passing, and even then not my OTP. *ponders* Suggestions welcome.

I need to do all my paperwork. The Waking still leaves me breathless in places and about every six month or so some one re-recs it on BBF even though it's in the archive because they love it so much.

But I know what you're sighing about. I think that we get so close to our OTPs and favorite boys that no matter how hard we try, we can't quite focus. Right this second I'd have to say my best is Outside Man (not that I can submit that because it's *not done*). But, Mal and Spike really aren't my boys - you wouldn't know it if you compared the volume of feedback with my other fics.

*smooch* You and Magpie kept me sane(ish) while working on that story.

FWIW there's several WIP's in the archive, so you could submit Outside Man if you liked. But I totally get the 'not my boys' thing. Though I would argure that you've sort of made them yours from the readers' POV - think 'Mal/Spike' and the answer is 'Outside Man and Serenity.'

I'm stil... arrgh. I've got S/X that's good enough to represent me, and is definitely me - Bachelor Pad, for instance - and S/X that I love but needs a little re-polishing - Long Time, we're looking at you - but Waking is still probably the best thing I've written ever, fanfic or otherwise. I just don't personally love it as much.
