Now I’m done.  When I edit and post all the drafts 1056 of my about 1210 fics will be on AO3.  I think that’s a pretty impressive 6 year career as a Criminal Minds fic writer.

I’ve met so many cool people, people who are as close to me as family through this fandom and these stories and no matter what drama came along (and there was ALWAYS some drama), writing these stories changed me.  It helped me grow as a person and a writer and it gave me all of you, for which I will always be profoundly grateful.

When you’re feeling accomplished because you think you imported everything you wanted, tagged it, put it in the right series, but the numbers still look off…and you realize you are missing nearly a year’s worth of stories you wrote for your primary ship during that time.

I didnt import all the Thicker than Water fics, some are just nothing special, but all the fics written before October 2011 (when I joined AO3) have been imported and are waiting in Drafts for me to number the series.  That’s what I’ll work on tonight.

And after that I import early Hotch/Megan and everything I want will be over there from livejournal.  In the end it might end up being about 900 out of my 1200+.  I think that’s a good number, especially since I’m sure it will be all of my good stories.

There are 122 Thicker than Water fics.  I’ve decided to split the Hotch/Megan’s… same universe but they’ll be under a different series title so they wont get lost in all the other works.

I need to be in bed now, I have work in the morning but I’m working on drafting and importing stories.  Once I start my OCD makes it hard to stop until its done.

All the rarepairs_cm Gideon/Prentiss stories I tried to import from LJ went horribly awry so now I’m going to have to copy and paste when I get home from work tonight.  Luckily there are only 13 so it wont take me the rest of my life.

But next is Thicker than Water and I have to decide if I want to add it as a series on AO3 (there are about 120 fics) and even if I do if I want to import all the fics.  Surely not all of them are super amazing but it really is a fantastic universe.

Importing

I’m importing more stories onto AO3 tonight and all I have to say is “damn do I have a lot of Hotch/Prentiss stories, and some of the really old ones are good!”

Happiness!!!!!!!

The majority of every Rossi/Strauss fic I ever wrote will soon be on AO3 (I have about 55 in drafts right now).  I left a few out, just balls of fluff or little insignificant ficlets, but the rest will be there for all to enjoy.  Next I have to work on Hotch/Prentiss.  Most of them are so old I probably wont bring over the majority.  But some are really good and I want to have all my best stories in one place for me and for people who like them.

I was feeling rather ‘meh’ today but I was boosted a bit by importing four major series (Gentleman Prefer Blondes, When We’re Together, fiftysomething, and Coming Around Again) from LJ to AO3.  Maybe tomorrow or Tuesday I’ll do The Grove.  I know I’m not going to be able to do Thicker than Water as that’s over 100 fics and will take the rest of my life.  But I will do some Sam/Jessie as well.  I have a lot of stories to choose from but the series work is easiest.

I know….

that it was probably the best, and least time-consuming, idea at the time, but OMG, how silly was it of me to post a story or two from a whole series on AO3 and not to post the whole thing when I opened my account 3 years ago. 

I’ve got a lot of work cut out for me with this project.  I just posted When We’re Together, which is the first Rossi/Strauss “canon” series I wrote after getting bitten by the Strossi bug in 2010.

Next I’ll be doing Hotch/Prentiss’ fiftysomething and Gideon/Prentiss’ Coming Around Again.
