 This year, I wrote two stories!  

The first was Hunting the Phoenix, historical RPF about Antinous and his affair with the Roman Emperor Hadrian.  It's kind of... a meditation on the unknowability of Antinous while he was a live, from Antinous' perspective.  The more I researched this story the more I had questions with no answers, and I wanted to write something that reflected that rather than putting in my own glib answers.  Of course, I did put in my own glib answers, too.  But I tried to be subtle about it, to the point where my primary beta reader missed them entirely.  Readers, I ask: what did you see me say on the matter?

The second was The Child Eaters, Greek mythology/Greek drama fic about Electra, Orestes, and Pylades after the murder of Clytemnestra.  The idea was to blend the wrenching verisimilitude of Sophocles with the over-the-top cynical strangeness of Euripides and add a soupcon on Tarantino, and I'mm not quite sure if it worked, but I had fun trying and I might want to tamper with it a little more.
