snickfic: Sam Dean (SD)
I keep saying I've written more S8 fic than anything else, but I decided it was time to put it to the test. So, voila, a list! With some fics that featured characters from one season set in another season, I counted it twice.

So I've actually written one more related to S5 than S8, to my surprise. I think it's interesting to note that of the first eight seasons, those are two of the three I would point to as the most deeply flawed. OTOH, S8 introduces a lot of new and interesting elements, while S5 gives us an end-of-the-world setting plus a lot of interesting character combinations, so that accounts for most of my fic writing. (I rarely write fic to explain canon's holes or fix its weaknesses. Just not my favorite thing to do. It might be due to laziness.)

Meanwhile, I have written exactly one fic related to S7, and it's actually set pre-season using a character introduced in S7 (Amy the kitsune). So that tells you all my feelings about S7. I'm not sure why I haven't written more in S1, unless it's just because it's soooo Sam-and-Dean centric, and I've actually written very little straight Sam-and-Dean.

It's that time of year again when a young(ish) fan's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love statistics. Theoretically I would do this at the end of the year, but honestly who has time to crunch numbers around the holidays? So, have some tables here in early November.

This year I stopped crossposting everything to LJ if it appeared in an event elsewhere first. The first table below is of fics that I posted to both LJ and AO3, because the main point I wanted to make was that these days traffic on AO3 surpasses traffic on LJ in every single case, due to both the declining activity on LJ and the increasing activity on AO3. Honestly, the LJ hit rate on most of those fics makes me pretty sad. The Russians will pry my LJ from my cold dead hands. *wibble*

The second table has data for fics that were posted either to AO3 only or to AO3 and another LJ comm, ie, spn_summergen and spnspringfling. (The "LJ response" column there is for comments made to my LJ announcement posts, although the fic itself wasn't posted to LJ.) This data and the AO3 fb/hit ratio in particular seems to indicate that people are much likelier to turn out and comment on things for fests and events than on something that was posted cold. Then again, only half the events for which those fics were written were actually on AO3, so who knows. NOT ENOUGH DATA. Always not enough data.

It's also worth noting, though, that the commenting rate on those fics posted only to AO3 was better than my median LJ commenting rate. So that's interesting. I don't notice any trends on either platform regarding particular fandoms or pairings, other than the oft-acknowledged fact that fic tagged with popular tropes and/or kinks does really well on AO3.
