I actually just looked at the numbers a few days ago, so this is good timing! (I'm nearing the end of my latest notebook, where I plot out fic arcs, bingos and GIFsets, so I wanted a summary.) Plus OTW is currently doing another drive for funds- I spend a lot of time on AO3, so I was happy to donate. One thing: I wish AO3 did stats by chapter, like ffnet does! 

Total: 31 works, 203489 words posted since 2013. In general: I write an average of 3439 words per piece/chapter (although they range from 100 to 8500 words), and I tend to complete one thing every three weeks or so. 

Numbers blahblahblah )

Okay, I just feel the need to explain why I went from , "aw, they're cute" after How To Train Your Dragon in 2010 to I SHIP THIS LIKE BURNING in the space of like, a month. And mostly from a one minute clip before HTTYD2 even came out. This is embarrassing.

Title: Dark Horse
Fandom: How to train your dragon/ Dreamworks Dragons
Characters: Astrid/Hiccup (Hiccstrid), Stoick, Snotlout
Word Count: ~7000

Summary: She's a warrior; he's a peacemaker. And good relationships are symbiotic.

Hiccup is so much more comfortable with himself physically in HTTYD2, and I wanted to explore how he got there since he's still nowhere near as of DoB. Puberty finally gives him and Astrid both inches, but I figured it had to be Astrid that finally teaches him how to fight independent of Toothless since she has always had a very similar build. (Naturally he adds a flaming sword for the requisite Hiccup flair.)
I also wanted to give Astrid a story where her main purpose was not to simply be the love interest, but to recognize how she has motivations and goals of her own. HTTYD2 actually disappointed me that way- she had no character arc besides changing her opinion of Eret; she's mostly a one-note "support Hiccup" character like she has become in the series. And I find that really frustrating: Astrid is Hiccup's opposite in so many ways that their perceptions and goals should come into natural conflict, at least some of time. So with that idea of them faced off in conflict, this chapter (and the next) was born.
Thoughts and concrit are always appreciated!
