It's always a little shock to find just how much time you've put in a hobby. I'm a Unix user, and an anal git when storing my fics. I also write them using the most basic of text editors, no fancy formatting options for me. That gets taken care of in post-production. So what I can do is find all the .txt files, and count the words in them. By the Brother of Creation! TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND?!! Not all of these things are published works, and there's one or two abandoned ideas, but still.

And I'm not done yet. I am at forty nine fics on Archive Of Our Own. (AO3). I think I'll indulge myself for Fic Fifty, and make a massive crossover extravaganza from every 'verse I've ever written in: World of Warcraft, Generation Kill, Stargate Atlantis, Diane Duane's Young Wizards, Terry Pratchett's Discworld, and last but not least my very own Algernon Expeditions. Oh, and RWBY.


There's going to be a party at Caer Bannog in the Redridge Mountains, and everyone is invited!
