(Meta) A random burst of statistics

Since I began writing fanfic in October 2006 I've written a total of 138,673 words in three years, of which 29,844 was written this year. I've written a total of 113 fics, or 143 if you count each chapter of a multi-chapter fic separately. 62 of those fics were drabbles, 51 of them were longer than that.

My three longest fics are:

  • Hiywan's Story - 24,244 in 8 chapters.
  • One Day In The Life Of Buffy Summers - 12,999 in 10 chapters.
  • We Just Declared War - 12,562 in 6 chapters.

My average fic is 1,227 words long. If you exclude the drabbles, the average is 2,598 words.

I've written nine fics with explicit sex: 7 femslash, 1 het, one male!solo.  The people who got lucky were Willow, Kennedy, Tara, Buffy, Dawn, Faith, Saga Vasuki and Spike's coat.

14 of my fics involved the death of a human, and five with their experiences in the afterlife. I've wiped out the entire world once. Two fics have dealt with conception and birth. Two fics have specifically mentioned menstruation.

The character I've written about most often is Buffy, with Willow in second place.

Excluding drabbles, my 51 fics include 3 about Terminator:The Sarah Connor Chronicles, 1 about Dollhouse, and 47 about the Buffyverse (although 6 of those were crossovers, including one with TSCC and one with Dollhouse, the others being with Aliens, Pern, Elric and Planescape).

Is it working?

Very much so. Only thing that would be more effective would be if you made this a voice post. That would just be cruel.

You are sorely tempting me to do this with the same template.

Feel free. :-) It's the same template I used a year ago, actually, just updated. (Except I didn't bother to count up how many characdters appear in how mmany fics this time, unlike last - it gets too complicated with ensemble stories.)

With my compulsiveness, I'm surprised I haven't done something like this... maybe because I've only written 25 stories (going on 26) and only 14 of them have been Buffyverse (going on 15).

I was amazed to realize that I've only gone explicit in 3 of my Buffy stories. Seemed like way more than that, for some reason...

That's a lot of fic. Cool!
