AO3 stats meme

It's been just a little over a year since I've done one of these, and I'm always fascinated by the results. Formatting snagged from
selenak this time.

Top 5 Stories by Hits
1. Three Christmases With Miss Honey - Matilda (Roald Dahl), Matilda+Miss Honey
I begin to think that, short of beginning a new career in m/m porn, I will never top this 2009 Yuletide fic's success. Maybe what boggles me most is that it continues to pick up hits after all this time; it's gotten 700 since I last did this meme. Apparently lots of people search AO3 for nostalgia children's lit fluff?

2. What Should Really, Really Never Be - SPN, lots of pairings, A/B/O in the French Mistake 'verse
This fic enjoys the twin advantages of the A/B/O tag and five different pairings. Also it's silly crack of decent length, set in a fairly popular episode. I can find reasons to explain its popularity despite getting posted cold, no fest or event involved, but I'd never have been able to predict it.

3. Thermodynamics and the Modern Male - SPN RPF, J2 friendship, A/B/O
It's A/B/O written for a bang. 'Nuf said.

4. Many Waters - SPN, Sam/Jess, watersports
I think m/f watersports is just really rare, and people will take what they can get.

5. Too Hot, Too Cold, Just Right - SPN, Sam/Jo, A/B/O
I'm pretty sure this has as many hits as it does because it's rated Explicit, with knotting and A/B/O and heat sex. I doubt it's really the fic people have in mind when they think about that combination of tags, but I am nonetheless very proud of it for other reasons, so I won't complain.


Top 5 Stories by Kudos
1. What Should Really, Really Never Be
This isn't even close. This has almost 2.5 times the number of kudos as my next most-kudosed fic.

2. Not Just For Hallmark Specials Anymore - SPN RPF, Jensen/Danneel, a/b/o, mpreg, h/c
This is basically a coffee shop AU, but with emphasis on tea and soup instead of coffee. Also the ship's beta/omega, and there's h/c and mpreg and winter and basically everything I love. It is my happy fuzzy fic, the fic I wrote trying to emulate some of the happy fuzzy fics by other people that I'd so enjoyed. So, I am very pleased that people like it.

3. Chemical Bonding - SPN RPF, Jared/Gen, a/b/o
Another one that I'm really pleased people like, even if I feel it falls short in a lot of ways, especially structurally. However, I had an absolute ball writing all the female friendship in it, which is an aspect that exists in almost no a/b/o fics ever, so it pleases me to have it in the list.

4. Thermodynamics and the Modern Male, again

5. Tea Parties - BtVS, Drusilla/Buffybot
Wrote this utter crackship for Rarewomen last year because I could. Am completely boggled that it's as popular as it is - seriously, crackship femslash - but nonetheless very pleased. It was awfully fun to write.
