AO3 Top Ten Hit List meme

So I saw this meme on vix_spes's blog and was intrigued, so I had a go.

Meme: List your top 10 AO3 fics by number of hits.

  1. Gold Tinted Spectacles(Harry/Draco, NC17, Hits:18332)
    Harry is about to enter his seventh year, and things are not quite what he expected. He is no longer the angry boy who watched his world fall apart at the end of his fifth year, but neither has he completely found his place yet. He is looking for someting, and to his confusion it seems to have something to do with Draco Malfoy.

  2. Angels and Devils (Harry/Draco, NC17, Hits:12784)
    Harry defeated Voldemort: his act of heroism is famous throughout the wizarding world. He’s trying to finish his final year at Hogwarts in peace, but something peculiar is happening to him, something he never would have expected. It's all rather embarrassing and making his life very complicated.

  3. Faults for Fixing (Charles Xavier/Eric Lehnsherr, NC17, Hits:11579)
    Charles sees the events of the missile crisis and subsequent weeks when he uses Cerebro to touch the mind of a mutant with the power to see the near future. When he wakes up he is determined that he will not allow them to happen and he will not lose the people he loves.

  4. Of All the Locked Rooms In All The World... (Derek/Stiles, Teenwolf, NC17, Hits:11207)
    Hunters have plans for Beacon Hills that involved kidnapping Stiles and having him killed by a rogue werewolf. When that rogue werewolf is Derek, however, plans are bound to go awry.

  5. The Needs of the Few (Sherlock/John, NC17, Hits:9522
    When Sherlock is shot and lies dying, John confesses what he has come to realise; that he is in love with his friend and cannot go on without him. This confession leads to revelations about Sherlock and vampires, of all things, and sets their relationship onto a whole new path.

  6. Destiny Sucks (Derek/Stiles, Teenwolf, NC17, Hits: 8481)
    When Stiles sleeps he goes to the white place he, Scott and Alison visited when they sacrificed themselves. He keeps seeing a white wolf there and he knows it's important, but he's just so tired.

  7. Hot and Hotter (Derek/Stiles, Teenwolf, NC17, Hits: 7813)
    Stiles has been hit by magical backlash and he goes to Derek for help without really knowing why.

  8. The Needy (Sherlock/John, NC17, Hits: 7566)
    Sequel to The Needs of the Few - Sherlock is finding that letting his vampire side out is very interesting and stimulating as well as making him more than a little obsessed with John. He could have done without Lestrade showing up, but he had left rather a lot of blood at the scene so it was only to be expected.

  9. Corruption (Harry/Draco, NC17, Hits: 6210)
    Voldemort has captured Harry and for his own twisted reasons has chosen not to kill him outright. Revenge in the Dark Lord's mind requires a fate worse than death and Harry is about to find out what that is.

  10. More Mundane Needs (Interlude for the Needs series) (Sherlock/John, PG, Hits: 6177)
    An interlude where John and Sherlock go shopping to a very exclusive gentleman's outfitters.

Most interesting how one of my oldest fics that was only secondarily posted to AO3 after years on LJ is at the top :). Shows that the Harry Potter fandom is still going strong.

I had no idea that my Sherlock fics were so popular compared to my other fics, or my X-men: FC fic.

Teen Wolf really is a monster fandom - I've never had so many hits so quickly as when I post Sterek fics. :) It's like the high days of Harry Potter fandom all over again.
