Fic meme, Day Two

Day 2 – Name the fandoms you've written in, and how much you've written in that fandom, and if you still write in it.

I've only ever written in two fandoms: BtVS/AtS and Merlin. I guess that might be three if you split up Buffy and Angel. As for how much I've written...

*rolls on floor laughing*

Sorry. Had to stop and take a breath there. Because what I wrote for Buffy seems obscene lol. Because the bulk of my work was long (and I do mean long), plotty stuff, I have bordering on 2.5 million words of Buffy fanfic. Which is just kind of scary when I put it like that.

As for Merlin, I've only been writing in that one a year, and only have two longer fics (though not by my Buffy standards). I have 32 stories that are currently out there in one form or another (with another 1 in limbo as I wait for it to go up, and a few auction pieces that haven't gone up yet, either), which amounts to roughly 240,000 words. There's also 4 WIPs on my hard drive, or about 16k, that haven't been posted in any format.

I'm still definitely writing Merlin, but in the past couple months, I've been trying to get back into Buffy. Not like my long plotty stuff because I don't have the time or energy for that, but a few of the spots I've managed to finish on my hc_bingo card are actually set in the BtVSverse, so there's hope. :)
