The ten fics I wish I've written meme

Many fic writers are posting that meme about fic titles on their LJs, and it’s really interesting to know their comments about this subject. Probably all of you know I never wrote a fic (well, I’m trying hard to write something to my Brazilian Oz group, but so far I wrote half a page and it doesn’t seem to go any further than that!) but there are many amazing fics I’d love to say that were written by me. I keep going back to them from time to time, just to have the same thrill. God, they’re addictive, LOL
So that’s my idea

Talk about 10 fics you wish you've written. Any fandom, any pairings, canon or AU, that's not important. Just explain why you appreciate them so much it’d be a pleasure to be their author

Well, my top 10, the ones I wish I've written, are


I discovered about Oz fandom last year, and this was one of the first fics I read. It wasn’t the very first one, but it’s the first one I remember. It was on June beginning, and I don’t remember much more about those days, just my father’s birthday party, because I talked a lot about fics, specially this one, to a friend of mine who was here. Rough Trade was amazing and scaring at same time, I barely slept and worked during those days, I had to read it entirely before doing anything else. All the BDSM info on chapters first and two made me feel uncomfortable, I’d never read so much about it before, but it made me look for more on net (and now I can say proudly tracy_rowan taught me a lot about BDSM!). But I was just a newbie then, and just many moons later, after learning more about the show and its characters, I could read it again and appreciate even more.


alinewrites made me cry with her Cat. Many times. At home, in front of my computer. On buses, reading its printed version. I’ll probably cry if I keep writing about it much more. The way she wrote about how Chris was still around Toby, even when he wasn’t human anymore... awwww, it touched me deeply!


I wasn’t so sure about reading Twist of fate because it has an alternate ending. Hum, it meant the real ending was heartbreaking, and I was looking for not so angst fics by that time. But I decided to give it a try. OMG, it was perfect! In fact I enjoyed a lot the real ending, although the alternate one was also really well written too. Through all chapters I could see the story couldn’t end well, it made me want to scream, it made me want to cry – in fact I cried a little, inside a bus (I’m always reading fics while going to/coming back from work), when Chris explained to Toby’s kids he had to go to prison. tobyfan did a perfect job here!


I just love the idea behind This kiss: what if Chris had told Toby the truth about Schillinger’s plans? Would Toby forgive (and eventually love) him? rileyc has thousands of great fics, but I adored this one, the way Toby reacts while listening to Chris, Vern’s revenge, Toby’s revenge, and how he and Chris make up later, Toby accepting his love for Chris, awwwwwwww....


Yeah, actizera, give me that! I also read Dirty during my newbie days, and since then I’ve read it many more times. HornyChris is something, isn’t he? I just adored ShyToby too, slowly giving up to lust. I wander if there’s somebody able to resist to Keller’s charms...


I’ve read it on C5 group list, it was such a crazy idea: Jen, Kristin, El and Shug wrote about inmates’ shanks, can you believe that? Groves, Schillinger, Pancamo, Beecher, Keller, O'Reily, Said, Alvarez and Adebisi shanks talk a lot about their owners and wishes. It’s such an unexpected POV that each time I read Bleeding Edge again I discover something I hadn’t noticed before!


I. Love. This. Fic. That’s it. Angel wrote a different story to each day of New Year’s lockdown, I suppose it was really hard but Lockdown... it’s a masterpiece! And her disclaimers on all chapters are priceless too!


Finally something that’s not B/K!! LOL
Well, tobyfan commented about it, so why not give it a try? I’m not a Smallville fan, but the idea of those guys during Roman Empire days... hum, definitely I had to give it a try. And it was totally worth: isagel is writing (yes, Captured a WIP) a fantastic saga, she’s so inspired, she’s providing us with so many details about those days... it’s fascinating!


That’s a gem! Back to S3, Chris trying to make Toby love him, Toby denying his own feelings. Jerking off moments. How couldn’t I love catheights What did you picture??


Somebody talked about Heat, how it was a curious AU when Ozzies were living at Oklahoma in the end of 19th century. Chris is a photographer and rainmaker, the stranger who comes to change Toby’s life. No Schillinger, thanks God. So beautiful, I frequently read it again and again!


(there are many more fics I wish I’ve written, but I decided to talk about just 10, so don’t be angry with me if you don’t agree to this list! And to all those great writers I wrote about: sorry if I didn't send you feedback until today!!)

Aww, you're so sweet. Thanks, Adriana. I'm glad it moved you.

I think I'm the only one who *didn't* see a sad ending until I got to the last two chapters. Rebecca kept saying she couldn't imagine how it was going to end happily and I kept thinking I'll find a way. It was supposed to end happily! And then those pesky muses went and did things their way! Hmph!

Thanks for the kind words.

I can't believe that! I saw it from the beginning, when you wrote about Chris' trouble in accepting his own sexuality, and when he sent Toby to hospital after beating him. It was horrible to read, but made perfect sense, totally connected to canon. I think that's why it wasn't so hard to understand the sad ending, I *do* like the alternate one but the first you wrote didn't destroy the beauty of your fic!

I'm so dense, but I honestly didn't see it that soon. I set out to write a happy AU BK story with the boys outside of Oz. I wanted it to parallel Oz, but I really meant for them to be together at the end. I had no plan for Chris to get all moral and confess. That took me by surprise. My muses really do control me. *g*

I hope they'll keep doing that, because they're great!

Wow, it's very cool that you're reading Captured! I was so excited to read that. It's a great story.

Re: PS
Yeah, I agree to you, it's fascinating to learn more about Roman Empire through Isagel's eyes, and how perfectly she's writing about Clark and Lex living then, the girl's really talented! I wander if someone else wouldn't like to write an epic fic like that involving Senator Beecher and General Keller, maybe with Senator Schillinger too... LOL

Hee! Thanks, Adriana! I'm always happy to hear about someone enjoying that shameless morsel of smut. *bg*

And to answer your question, I think only freaks like Katherine McClain are able to resist Keller's charms... LOL.

McClain doesn't count, that woman surely had serious problems... lots of them, of all types...

But that "shameless morsel of smut" is amazing, one of my all-time favorites!!

Actizera, I just read ¨Dirty¨. You´re great!!!! Please, wrote more like this. I absolutely love it! I adore when Chris is the agressor and Toby is shy and you did it perfectly.

That's an amazing and totally hot fic, isn't it, Fiola?? ;o)

Hmm...how did I miss this comment? Sorry about that!

Thank you so much! I'm so happy that you liked it! : ) As for writing more stories like that...well, I'm definitely going to try to write some more smut soon, and yeah, Chris might be pretty aggressive in it...so it might be right up your alley! *bg*
