However, I'm more curious about neglected stories! Popularity does not equal quality. I propose a new meme! Tell me your three least-hit AO3 stories of which you are nevertheless proud. That is, if a story sits among your least-hit and you feel that it deserves to, skip it. It doesn't count. We're seeking good works that have been overlooked, whether because the fandom is small, the character unpopular, or the subject matter trying. (Caveat: I do not promise to personally read all such stories, especially if they are out of my fandoms or beyond my content boundaries.)
In my case, my least-read story on the AO3 is "Not the Mothering Type" (FK; '01, ~4K, PG-13; Janette, Sofia, Nick, Lacroix). Readers generously nominated it for the FK Fanfic Awards in '01, but on the AO3, it has earned just three (3) hits, putting it even below my poems (speaking of unpopular genres ~grin~). Then there are "Responses" (FK; '09, ~3K, PG-13; Fleur, Erica, Lacroix, Nick) and "What It's Like" (FK; '03, ~2K, PG; Natalie, Nick).
