Actually a pretty good week for writing! Which is not what I expected to be saying as of, say, Wednesday.

WIPs currently active: 5, because I finished TWO stories this week and finally got started on my Sam/Steve Exchange story!

Words written this week: 6,338

WIPs that got no words this week: 0

WIPs that did get words this week:

Codename: Aluminum Bastard (aka broken dick epic): 294, which has got me moving toward the momentous bit! 

Born in the Blood:  168

Ring the Bell Backward (for @notwithoutyoufanbook): 1,933, and FINISHED, which is good because it is due soon and oh hey the KICKSTARTER LAUNCHED TODAY AND HOLY SHIT IT’S ALREADY BLOWN THROUGH FOUR STRETCH GOALS??? YOU GUYS. YOU GUYS.

How the Winter Soldier Met the Hulk: 1,283, and ALSO FINISHED and will get posted… someday. Soonish. Probably. Things are a little hectic this week.

Slavefic #5 (THE DRAMATIC REUNION): 497

Pillow Box #4 (Sam): 1,884, and 3300 words into the story Sam still has not laid eyes on Threetoo. I… definitely am having trouble with this whole “ficlet” concept.

Secret Sam/Steve Exchange Story: 279, haha guess what I will be FRANTICALLY WRITING this week. O_____O hooboy deadlines sure are a thing!

Scope note: Anonymous exchange fics are included in the Year in Review for the year in which they were revealed, so this post includes my Yuletide 2016 story, which was revealed before midnight on December 31 in my time zone. I am including the two WIPs I've posted to AO3 this year, and will also include them in future Years in Review for years in which new chapters are posted.

This year I posted 20 complete stories + 2 WIPs in 3 fandoms totalling just over 235,000 words, which made for a possibly even more mono-fannish year than last year, which was my most mono-fannish to date. I am getting fandom-monogamous in my old age, apparently. (I mean. Apart from writing gay werewolves for money, and so on.)

This year's titles quoted from Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2), Dan Fogelberg (2), Bleachers, Leonard Cohen, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Alan Jackson, Mission: Impossible, The Mountain Goats, Stan Rogers, Taylor Swift, and X Ambassadors.

Speaking of writing gay werewolves for money!

THE ALPHA’S HOME will be officially released on January 5!!

An omega forced to mate an alpha he hates turns to his beta best friend for help to escape–but the only way out is to be stolen by another alpha.

Grant Denny is an omega who never wanted an alpha mate. He doesn’t want to be a sex toy for an entire pack, even if the alternative is to go through the agony of full moon heats locked up alone. But the choice has been taken away from him–he’s been given to Cliff, an alpha he can’t stand, who is keeping him in a remote cabin along with Jack, a beta who is his best friend, packmate, and the only person he’s ever wanted.

Jack Merritt is trapped in his wolf shape by the cruel alpha who claimed Grant against his will, and took Jack along with him. Jack has loved Grant forever, and he’ll do anything to stay with the omega–but Grant begs him to run away at the first chance, to try to find some way they can both escape before Grant’s heat arrives and forces him to submit to the alpha. Jack would do anything for Grant, but leaving him behind is the hardest thing he’s ever done.

Mike Gilford has been an alpha werewolf for half a year now, and he’s ready to find a mate and start a pack of his own. He never imagined that he would find them like this–a lost wolf, hurt and helpless by the side of the road, and the trapped omega he leads Mike to rescue. Mike only wants to help, but the moment he meets Grant the pull between them is undeniable–and terrifying to Grant, who is trying to escape from being bent to an alpha’s will.

Grant and Jack need a pack’s protection, and Mike is willing to give it, but can he keep them safe without keeping them prisoner? Can Grant learn to trust that Mike isn’t like the alphas he’s met before, and that his destiny as an omega isn’t the doom he’s always feared? With the full moon and Grant’s next heat on the way, there’s not much time for three wolves to make themselves a pack and find their way home…

There's also a teaser scene up on Tumblr! I still have a few advance copies available, let me know if you want one! :)
