While everyone is waiting for reveals to go up, we thought we'd entertain you with this year's wacky stats. There are some very interesting and significant changes this time around. For reference, here are the stats from 2010
and the stats from 2009
We had 15 pieces of art and 55 fics, giving us a grand total of 70 pieces
!~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Mixed: 7 (pieces containing some combination of slash/het/femslash)
Other: 2 (since we aren't certain of the sex of Rosa Sadista
, we're going to put that and self-sex into "none of the above"!)
Looking at it another way...
Pieces containing slash: 44
Pieces containing het: 21
Pieces containing femslash: 11~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
This year was definitely a year of change for Kinky Kristmas. The year for unusual characters and rarepairs for sure. Whereas last year contained 33 canon characters across 80 pieces, this year we boasted 48 characters
(more of we count a cadre of merpeople)!!!
To give an idea of how much this altered the nature of the stats: Snape
was still the most frequently featured character, yet he only apeared in 18 pieces
-- only a little more than half of last year's 32. The next most featured characters were Harry
, who appeared in 15
pieces respectively. No other characters made it to the double digits (although Sirius
made a good effort with 9
).~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Speaking of the popularity
of specific characters... that's changed quite a great deal as well:
Once again, Snape
took the lead with the greatest number of partners. Since 2009 he's gone from gay to bisexual to omnisexual, apparently. Among his 12
partners this year were men, women, a snake, and a highly salacious, sadistic plant.Draco
maintained last year's tally of 11
partners, putting him in second place. He managed to get it on with all three members of the Trio, five
Weasleys, and two of his professors -- although one of those professors was not who he thought he was, poor Draco!Harry
gained one partner and held onto his third place position with 10
. He kept mainly to his own generation this time around, though he did have two older Weasley siblings, Snape, and his own godson to stir things up a bit.
No other characters
got around nearly as much
achieved outstanding populartity, but we'll award honorable mention ribbons to those who scored 6
partners each: Bill, Charlie, Hermione, Minerva, Neville, Pomona, Ron, and Sirius
Speaking of change... Luna
, who tied for third place in 2010 with 9 partners, only had 4 partners this year. And last year's second place character, Ginny
, only appeared in a single piece with a single partner!!~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
With this year's variety of characters and abundance of rarepairs, there weren't a great number of repeat pairings. Most frequent were:
Harry/Draco: 6 (although in 5 of those instances they were in threesomes with another participant and the other time was a partner swap scenario. Exciting sex life or bored with each other? You decide...)
Snape/Sirius: 3 (a tremendous drop from last year; woeful mod is full of woe!)
Snape/Minerva: 3 (including one scenario in which they were 2/5 of a rather interesting group.)~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
A few other random facts:
The Weasleys certainly seemed to get theirs this year. Of our 70 pieces, 23
featured at least one Weasley. Bill was the most popular, appearing in 7 pieces and having 6 partners. He was so popular, in fact, that even his own father wanted him. This must irk the hell out of Charlie, who ranked just below him with 6 pieces and 5 partners. Espeically since his youngest brother bagged 5 partners as well! Shockingly, Fred didn't appear at all this year. Poor Fred! He's not dead; he's just resting!
Once again, the older generation made a good showing. We had pieces featuring Minerva, Pomona, Irma, Hooch, Moody, and (not quite the same generation, but often unloved nonetheless) Arthur. Dumbledore, though, was suspiciously absent.
And again, it was a big year for threesomes and moresomes: 14
pieces featured three or more partners in a tangle.
We'd also like to note that we didn't fail to notice that Draco seems to have developed a new fetish. Of the 13 times Draco appeared, only 4 times did he not
appear with a Weasley. Hmmm...~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
For the first time, the award for Most Adventurous Sex Life doesn't go to Luna! She was clearly taking a break this year, since she only had 4 partners, and they were all distinctly human. No, this year the award goes out to Snape, who ended up in flagrante delicto
with the Chosen One, a Weasley, two Marauders, two Black sisters, both Black brothers, two professors, Tom Riddle, Nagini, and a sadistic plant! ...In retrospect, we think this collection also qualifies him for Most Dangerous
Most Unusual Pairing? No contest. The award goes to Snape/Minerva/Narcissa/Tom Ridde Jr./Nagini. Er, congrats, you five... A close runner up, however, is Moaning Myrtle/Grey Lady/Nearly-Headless Nick.~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
What a fantastic and diverse collection! Great job, everyone!!
