A Note on My Works – as of 9/17/13
I've been on FFN for a bit over four years now, and — since when I joined was about the same time that I started taking writing seriously — you can pretty much follow the progression of my writing development by reading my fics in chronological order. Not that anyone would. (Although I've been writing Shadows of a Lost Mind for nearly three years now, so you could just read that one and get pretty much the same idea.)
Pinch Me, I Must Be Dreaming is pretty much my only Maximum Ride fic that I still like (excepting my soft spot for the last few chapters of Angelic Tyranny). I'm really only leaving the others up because I would hate to lose the reviews (I'm shallow that way), and because I do still get occasional traffic on them that shows me that even though I've moved past them, there are still people who appreciate them. I don't want to take that away.
Shadows of a Lost Mind became more popular than I ever expected, and has the most loyal fanbase of any of my fics. (At the rate I update, it definitely needs it.) It's also my perfect blend of humor, drama, and insanity, so I've never really stopped loving it. Then there's Mahjarrat Psychiatry, which I loved writing and am still proud of and unfortunately got about as much traffic as a back road in North Dakota. Oh well. And most of my other RuneScape fics are just random silliness.
As for my Doctor Who fics, being my most recent works I have yet to improve enough to think they're "old" or "completely nasty". (Yeah, it happens.) I won't know for a while if they'll stand the test of time. For now, I'll just say that The OodNoodleSphere was lots of fun, and Just A Little Longer is currently holding a very special place in my heart. It was the first fanfiction that I simply could not stop writing, and I loved the chance that it gave me to play with a more emotional, tragic story. Not to mention that writing Matt Smith's Doctor is just a boatload of fun times. Never Forgotten was even more addicting to write than Just A Little Longer, and it gave me a chance to express some of my views on the show. (I have a lot of opinions about it, but I rarely have a reason to share them with anyone.) I kind of love it.
TL;DR — I like some of my work and I don't really like the rest anymore, but I leave the final decision up to my readers.

"You're really that good?" he said at last.
"I'm not arguing. I'm just offering a relentlessly contrary point of view."
