So I revisited the lovecalculator results, picture-heavy )

Oh, and surfing the "draws" tag, I found an entry from December 2010 in which I say:

At this point, I feel a little apologetic that I didn't write much else this year; for all Draws-not-fans, there's an end in sight, as #14 will be the last part (#12 is quite done, #13 is started, #14 will be strongly based on a draft from August 2009). Just another 100K and we're good :)

And in July 2012 I wrote:
Fixed the sex scene (deleted 2800 not-working words and added 1000 hotter ones) and then shipped Draws#16 - the last part of the Draws series \o/ - off to the beta.

Haaa-haaaa-haaa! Best-laid plans and all. *sigh* :)

Author: syredronning aka Acidqueen

Rating: NC-17. Warnings: emotionally intense subjects, dark past, miscarriage, complex poly relationship

Thanks for the wonderful beta go to [personal profile] shagungu, my eternal savior. All remaining flaws are solely mine.

Disclaimer: Paramount/Viacom owns Star Trek, I own my brain.

Summary: Lucky draws are still not in the cards of Chris' tribe.

Also available on AO3.

Chris dreams about something sweet and hot that he doesn't remember the second he opens his eyes, but the smile on his lips lingers as he curls, still half-asleep, around Dael at his side, burying his nose into short hair. )

Fixed the sex scene (deleted 2800 not-working words and added 1000 hotter ones) and then shipped Draws#16 - the last part of the Draws series \o/ - off to the beta.

So to everyone out there who didn't feel like reading an unfinished series, this would be a good moment to start catching up with the 317K words that are available already: http://archiveofourown.org/series/4583 :)

And what I learned in the last five weeks - when I tackle story writing like a project, aka spending 2-3 hours on it almost every day, I can get done an enormous amount.

So this is what NaNoWriMo is really teaching people - to tackle their writing project in a limited, intense writing flow. (I never really got that - to me, most people seemed to want to prove to themselves that they could write more than 50K words, and that's something I've proven myself in my very first fanfiction year). But it's really about the method, not just the word count.

Damn, I struggled with Draws 13! Writing from Pike's POV when I couldn't get a real grip on how he ticked was the hardest thing ever. There were moments when I was this -||- close to giving up on the whole series.

But now that it's out in the wild, I can finish Draws 14 (which actually has been the second part of 13, but there's no rule I can only post +50K stories, right?). 35K are already written, and while I struggle a little with the plot development, I'm hopeful it won't take another 15 months till it's ready.

Thanks so much to everyone whose continuous support and words of encouragement made me get through the endless (re)writing ♥ I wouldn't have been able to do it without you!

Summary: Chris comes home. But things are not as easy as they all had hoped for.

The living room is flooded with light as the sun slowly arcs from midday to afternoon position. The house is deadly silent, except for the rhythmic, soothing background noise coming from the sea and a light snoring from Leonard who's dozed off on the couch, sleep-slackened limbs sprawled in all directions. It can't be very comfortable. )

Because if I didn't write that meta, I'd have to write on Draws, you know ;)?

So I wrote this Pike/NumberOne/Kirk/McCoy foursome last night, and there's Draws with Dael as female character, and [livejournal.com profile] illariy started musing about the differences and it made my thoughts run.

So here some meta on similarities and differences between those two women )
