[Writing Challenge] 29 Days of Smut 2016 Wrap-Up

NSFW content beyond the cut.


My most-used kink this year was harem, with corruption/mindbreak as a runner up. Harem will be disqualified from the running for 28 Days of Smut 2017.
Parabellum was by far the most represented fandom or universe, as will likely be the case again in 2017.

In accordance with the abundance of Parabellum stories, the most represented consent level in 2016 was dubious consent for reasons of Stockholm syndrome. (Close runner-ups were nonconsensual and fully consensual.

The majority of my point of view characters this year were female, but I'm surprised by how many male characters I actually wrote from the perspective of. Honestly, I was expecting the ratio to be much more in favor of women than it was!

By far the most represented relationship configurations were M/F (heterosexual couples) and M/F/M (polyandrous triads). I didn't, unfortunately, write any F/F (homosexual female couples) this year; next year, I plan to make sure I write at least one. (And I'm actually quite surprised that the next most common configuration was M/M, or homosexual male couples.)

The majority of the stories written this year existed in universes stemming from alternate endings to their proper canons. But none of the other categories got left behind here, with each having at least four stories (except for the one story that has no proper canon).

I got some good work done on citrus-taste this year!

I wrote the most about heteroflexible women, which makes a lot of sense considering that's my own (current) sexual identity. Runner-ups were heteroflexible men and heterosexual men. I'm actually a bit surprised by the low number of bisexual men represented, especially in relation to the number of bisexual women represented. And while there was at least one homosexual man represented, I didn't write about a single homosexual woman; I definitely plan to do so next year!

I wrote the most (by far) about Stelian Frost and Sparrow Frost (though I'm a bit surprised Frost actually beat Sparrow by one); honorable mention goes to Simon Ides. All of that makes perfect sense considering the high representation of Parabellum and my current focus on that WIP; since I expect to still be working on that project by February 2017, these trends will likely continue next year.

I wrote a lot of non-canon-compliant Porn without Plot, Dark!Hero Alternate Universes, upcoming scenes for works in progress, and canon-compliant Porn without Plot. PWP is perfectly expected given the theme of the challenge, but Dark!Hero AUs were definitely somewhat over-represented.
