Uhm... oops?

I only just realized that the last many fics I've posted... I haven't actually crossposted at all. I post them to Dreamwidth (and if the automatic crosspost to LJ works, then that happens too, if not, then I don't give a fuck.) and to AO3. I store everything on my website for my own ease and occasionally I'll pimp stuff on tumblr. But it's been months since I last crossposted to any communities.

When I became aware of this, my first thought was to feel bad. But then I realized why it happened. It's because I'm too busy writing to actually file stuff. I hardly finish one fic before I'm on to the next. I keep needing new betas because I (apparently) work them into the ground one by one.

SO THIS IS A GOOD THING!

YAY FOR PRODUCTIVITY!

(Also, I'm posting a WIP for the first time in years and omg, I have fans badgering me for updates, what is this surreal thing, is it my life, omg...)

THIEF! THIEF!

I've had the misfortune of someone actually stealing one of my few original works and claiming it as their own. I've demanded in comments that the work be removed immediately, and I plan on reporting the thief to the archive. But other than that, if nothing happens, what do I do then? How does one handle shit like this?

Any and all advice welcome!

100 Things Challenge, #15!

Haven't done one of these in ages...

Working title:
"Trickster Time!"
Fandom: SPN.
Pairing: Sam/Gabriel. (It's what I'm going for anyway)
Other stuff: Au.
Word count: 2300~ words so far.

You can all go ahead and blame my son for this one. Having an almost-4-year old around means you get exposed to quite a lot of children's TV, and a lot of these presenters are just too damn cute. Add to that  the fact that Gabriel would be just fucking perfect hosting a kid's show, and voila! Brand spankin' new AU was born! And FYI, I lean heavily on brain-searing stuff like Lazy Town for inspiration. Fair warning.

Notes:
The plot started out as just a vague "wow, I'd love to see Gabriel host a kid's show" but before I knew it an actual plot took shape. The setup I'm most set on right now (I have several plot options for this), is the idea that Gabriel was originally a chef or something, but was sort of half-forced to join the family business of making family friendly (and Bible-compliant) TV. One of Gabe's brothers (right now I'm thinking Michael) hosts a kid's show (I was thinking a dulled down version of Lazy Town here) and decides that to boost ratings, what his show needs is a villain. Gabriel signs on to become The Trickster, a thoughtless, somewhat mean, scheming antagonist that the host can bounce his educational plots off of. Only problem is that in record time, The Trickster becomes the most popular character of the entire fucking network, even under the thumb of the bible-bashing goodie-two-shoes story-lines which wasn't really all that entertaining in Gabriel's opinion. So he decides that The Trickster needs his own show. The entire network has an aneurysm over this, and cuts Gabriel (and The Trickster) off completely. Gabriel tells them all to fuck off and starts up on his own. Trickster Time is born. And takes off like a fucking rocket.

I sort of want it to be Sam/Gabriel, but it might end up being only vague pre-slash, because I'm entirely too focused on Gabriel's story here.

Fic spree: likely.

As I mentioned in my new year's word count, I've been posting stuff on tumblr quite a bit. This is because I feel no urge to do things properly on a site I am pretty much exclusively using for instant fandom gratification. It's not my main blog. It's where I blurt out random stuff and even more random fic. However, some of them turned out okay, and after a trip to a beta they should be ready to post here and on AO3. So I've roped in my ever faithful betas to go through all the junk and help me make it decent enough to post with headers and everything.

I hope to start posting within the next few days, or next week at the latest. I already have a few things ready to post, but I also have an exuberant 3-year old, so there's no telling what kind of time I may or may not have.

Oh, and I have also dipped my toe into a new fandom: Person Of Interest. My god, I ship Reese/Finch SO hard! I kinda sorta already wrote them a ficlet... ahem. Anyway, that should also make an appearance, along with fanart-inspired smut, weird au ficlets, drabbles and gen things nobody seems to want to read. But if the writing is decent enough, it deserves the effort of giving them headers and crossposting. So there.

Stay tuned!

2012 writing overview meme.

Grabbed from myself back in 2008...

Only counting things I've actually posted as "complete" but not necessarily betaed or anything. Tumblr in particular has gotten a lot of little random fics thrown at it which I felt too lazy to format and post properly to LJ. I hope to get around to it next year. I'm also not counting what might well be around 50k of RP-ing through the year. The words have truly flowed from me this year, as harsh as it's felt.

Stats under here! )

Random stuff, fandom and otherwise.

In regards to the Pea situation, all I'm gonna say is that denial is a beautiful thing. Everything is set in motion, so there's nothing more I can really do other than worry myself silly. So I'm making extreme effort to not think about it. At all.

To help with this, I downloaded all 10 seasons of Stargate SG-1 and started a marathon. Not even kidding. I started watching only a couple of weeks ago and I'm already several episodes into season 5.

I'm not all that into it, to be honest, but it's decent entertainment and distracts me nicely. The first 2 seasons made me constantly roll my eyes because it was so silly, but I sternly reminded myself that first seasons are often like that. (TNG season 1, oh boy...)

Other stuff that keeps my mind off dangerous topics is smut. Not that smut isn't an awfully nice thing in general, but it seems my brain takes comfort in pushing the limits of my normal kinks. I'm delving into BDSM and watersports fics, and I'm frankly disappointed at how little there is of this in the SPN fandom, even on the kink meme (which is usually so scary to me that I hardly dare look at it. Bestiality, man... *shudder*). Guess I'll have to write what I want myself. I already did, actually.

I was feeling horribly down and in desperate need of some nice feedback, so I went back to what works (since my Dog Walker fic is getting a very lukewarm response) and posted a D/s smut thing I found in my folders. I posted a hesitant first part on tumblr and the response was overwhelming, so before I knew it I'd written almost 4k of sabriel D/s, powered by huge amounts of notes. It's here, if anyone wants to read it. Some day I'll probably have it betaed and posted properly, but for now I'm drowning in the moving process, so it'll have to wait.

Speaking of the moving process, there are ups and downs. It's fucking complicated and stressful, but it's going steadily ahead and 9 days from now, I'll have a new home. I got a moving company at a great price, got the loan for my deposit and all I need now is the key to my new place. Should hear from the leasers about signing the lease sometime this week, and I hope to get the keys at the same time.

Now... I guess I can't procrastinate packing any longer. *le sigh*

100 Things Challenge, #14!

Working title: "Jerichoprompt"
Fandom: SPN.
Pairing: Sam/Gabriel probably.
Other stuff: Amnesia fic, Jericho crossover.
Word count: 4000~ words so far.

Prompt: Gabriel was ressurrected but with no memory of who he was and since, he's been Bill, one of the loval cops in Jericho. It's not until one day, out checking on a disturbance that Bill gets attacked by something that should exisist and wakes up in one of the remote cabins outside Jericho.

I totally stole this prompt from a comment meme. If I ever get around to finishing it, I'll have to ask the original prompter if it's okay for me to use it.

Notes:
Okay, so... I watched Jericho a while ago, and while the series itself didn't really do much for me, RSJ was amazing in it, small-ish part or not. So this was just a tasty tasty prompt and I couldn't help but start writing it, even though the prompt was technically claimed for a mini-bang. But since I haven't seen any signs of the mini-bang fic ever happening, I think I can come forward now and admit that I started it too.

The only problem with this is that I've written myself into a corner somewhat, but I think I can save it. I sure like what I have so far, and once I brainstorm how to get myself over that hump I think it can be a good fic.

I also took total liberties with werewolves, so I'll probably do some handwavey shit and claim it's a foreign type or something.

Sometimes They Run: MASTERPOST!

Omg wow, first time ever I actually felt the need to make a masterpost for one of my fics. *puffs out chest*

This fic was actually born from a weird merging of several smaller ideas. At first it was just a random cutesy AU based on how Gabriel would be the classic busy business man and Sam would be his dishy young dog walker. But then it was so simple to add my an age difference kink, and along the way suddenly an older guilt trip bunny decided it wanted in on the fun.

I would also like to add that I hadn't even planned for Balthazar to be in this fic, but he wouldn't take no for an answer. And then ended up more or less saving the day. Who would have thought...

Another funny fact is that this fic has no Dean/Castiel what so ever. Not even as a secondary pairing. However, for those who are saddened by this, I can inform that I have some Dean/Cas timestamps in the works, and some of them might end up being an actual sequel.

Truly, if you reach the end of this fic and feel hungry for more, just stick around. Evidently several months of this verse was not enough for my brain. And OMG it's an actual verse now! I even made a tag for it! Holy crap!

People who deserve love, cookies and confetti for listening to me whining endlessly over how I would never finish or how I got stuck:

[livejournal.com profile] tli ! Thank you for holding my hand and patting me on the head every time I started again with my "I WILL NEVER REACH AN ENDING FOR THIS!" blather. Also thank you for cheering me on, and repeatedly welcoming me to your world. ;o)

[livejournal.com profile] mithrel ! Tireless beta and sounding board, cheerleader and ass-kicker. Thank you for your ear and your invaluable input! Thank you for putting up with my complaining and emotion vomiting! Just... THANK YOU!

[tumblr.com profile] thegreatnarwhalsmuffin ! For being a shameless fangirl and smothering me in encouragement when I was feeling discouraged. Couldn't have finished it without you!


Title: Sometimes They Run.
Part: 12/12
Fandom: Supernatural.
Pairings: Sam/Gabriel (and kinda sorta Castiel/Balthazar).
Rating: R (For language mostly. Lots of F-bombs.)
Word count: 30.234
Spoilers: None really, although it helps if you know who Gabriel and Balthazar are.
Warnings: Lots and lots of swearing. Age difference.
Feedback: Yes please.
Disclaimer: I don't own anything even remotely related to Supernatural. (But if anyone wanted to give me Gabriel for Christmas I sure wouldn't complain.)
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] mithrel  was a champion for taking on this monster and teaching me a few new tricks along the way. THANK YOU!
Notes: Human AU.
Summary: The story of how Sam got the sweetest job in history and how Gabriel learned how to run away. In which there are cute dogs, texting, boners and friends with benefits. There's trouble in Winchester-land, Balthazar butts in a lot, and Gabriel's brothers are dicks, except for the one you least expect.

Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3, Chapter 4, Chapter 5, Chapter 6, Chapter 7, Chapter 8, Chapter 9, Chapter 10, Chapter 11, Chapter 12.





UPDATE: There are now several timestamps! I try to post them chronologically, but it might not always be possible. The ones below are all post-Sometimes They Run, but there might be added more later taking place within the main fic. I'll try and make it as easy to navigate as possible.

Waiting And Wanting

Getting It On

Realm Of Miracles

Balancing Act

Moving In And Moving On

After All This Time

Fucking Finals

Mouth of Babes

Five Years And A Shotgun Wedding

This Is Not The Florist You're Looking For

Out Of Character

Nooner

Spam coming up.

I want to apologize in advance for the spam coming up on my blog. I'm finally ready to start posting my 30k words long Sam/Gabriel fic, and for filing purposes it's easier for me to post chapter by chapter. There are 12,  so...

Sorry.

But while I'm posting about it anyway...

OMFG IT'S FINISHED! IT HAS BEEN EATING MY BRAIN FOR MONTHS AND MONTHS!!

I would be even more pleased about it if I wasn't already sort of working on a sequel... *headdesk*

100 Things Challenge, #13!

UPDATE: This is now finished! Titled: Sometimes They Run. Read it on DW or on AO3.

Working title: "Dog Walker Sam Gabe"
Fandom: SPN.
Pairing: Sam/Gabriel, Human AU
Other stuff: Age difference kink and mostly pulp, but I still love it.
Word count: 8000~ words so far.

Okay, so... I have no idea where this came from. Just... it lives in my brain right now. Pretty much ever night I go to sleep I think scenes through for this, so who knows, I might actually finish it! In maybe 5k words or something. *dies*
Anyway, this is me trying to write insecure and stressed Gabriel, and it's surprisingly easy. This should probably worry me more than it does...

Notes: Basically, Gabriel is sort of the human equivalent of pre-Lucifer's-fall in canon. I chose to make him 40-ish, rich, but lonely, with only his dog for company, although his work load is making it hard to make time for said pooch. He's some sort of executive in the family business, constantly caught between Michael and Lucifer's (I decided to call him Luke, though) power plays. In comes Sam. College student, (Studying law of course, because it's Sam) dirt poor and due to his bleeding heart owning a dog he can't really afford. Chance meeting in the park results in Sam getting a ridiculously overpaid dog walking job and Gabriel totally losing his heart, despite the fact that he's distressingly convinced that nothing can ever happen between them because of a couple of decades between their ages. (Details if you ask me, but hey, plot!) So pulp romance basically, but who cares, it's Sam/Gabe! And apparently AUs are the bees' knees these days, so I'm sure someone out there will like it if I ever finish it.

Clawing my way back up.

After the hell that was last week, I'm slowly trying to get back on my feet. So far it's going well. I'm writing a lot and somehow I've gained a few friends via tumblr, without even really planning to.

Still conflicted about my love life, but considering the amount of stress I feel from looking at it too closely, I'm sort of just pushing it to the side until I feel up to dealing with it. I'll have to at some point, I know, but right now my head and my kid need my attention more. Priorities, priorities.

I'm almost done posting my writing on AO3, and the boost I'm getting from the hits and kudos has done wonders for my productivity and confidence in writing, which has been dwindling something awful lately.

Just a short update. Gonna post my latest porn now.

So uhm... AO3?

It seems everyone and their dog is suddenly using AO3 to post their stuff. So far I've been hesitant to start posting there, simply because I am already posting in a million other places, and I can only keep track of so much. But I keep hearing how awesome it is, so now I ask you, my wonderful f-list! Is it worth it?

I have... *counts* something like 120 fics scattered across various fandoms, and to post them all in a new place would be one heck of a job. I already once tried another archive site (Ad Astra) but I found posting complicated and the site wasn't always very user friendly. Plus, it's only for the Trek stuff, and as much as I love my Trek writing, I will always be a multi-fandom writer.

So far I've been using my website as archive for my own convenience, and I will keep doing that in the future. But AO3 has impressed me so far with its easy access and MASSIVE amount of fic, even though it's still fairly new.

So what do you guys think? All opinions welcome!

100 Things Challenge, #12!

Working title: "Ramalama."
Fandom: BBC Merlin.
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin.
Other stuff: Yes, the title refers to the song "Ramalama Bang Bang" by Roisin Murphy, and it's also included in the fic.
Word count: 2268 so far.

Originally this bunny was jotted down like this:

Arthur is a dancer, in town with a show. Every show he dances to Rama lama bang bang. It's a pure sex dance, and every show he picks someone out from the audience and has serious eye sex with them. One night he picks Merlin. Merlin falls for him, only to find out he's a complete snob off-stage. Trouble for Arthur is, he also falls for Merlin and has to learn some hard lessons in humility before they can get together.

Notes: If I ever get back to work on this fic, I greatly suspect it'll end up being long as fuck. Because every time I start poking at it, more plot points fall out. *pulls hair*

First the idea was just that Arthur was sexy on stage, but snooty as fuck off stage in a very general way, but it gets more and more detailed as I go along. Most of it is the fact that he's absurdly talented, and used to being treated like the golden boy he is. Morgana runs the show he travels with, and is the only one who regularly tells him when he's being a dick. Which is pretty much always. But she's his sister, so in Arthur's mind, she totally doesn't count. I have scenes thought out of Arthur dating only the prettiest girls, and not giving two shits about their feelings, only deciding by his own level of comfort how long the relationships last. He's never had to pursue anyone. Who he wants, he gets. And he KNOWS he's drop-dead sexy, which he uses to his advantage every chance he gets.

Merlin is in school, probably university. He goes to Arthur's show mostly against his will, and ends up being the "victim" of the night. Arthur loves toying with the audience, and every night he picks one "lucky" person to have filthy eye-sex/dance-off with, and of course he ends up picking Merlin. Merlin leaves the show with a major boner and a brand new fanboy crush. Arthur barely remembers him.

At Gwen's insistence Merlin tries to get Arthur's autograph, but is disgusted by what a major prick he is. He says some really snarky things to Arthur, who hardly believes his own ears. Because who would say such things to him!? He's gorgeous! Everybody knows it!

Enter next plot point. Merlin's mum runs a charity for kids, and because Gwen is a blabbermouth, Hunith gets the impression that Merlin is able to get in and talk with Arthur, and ask if he would volunteer a few hours of charity work, teaching some poor kids to dance. Merlin of course despairs but can't say no. It's for charity, after all.

Much to his surprise, Arthur agrees to see him and even accepts the proposal. Because of course it's eating him up that Merlin dared be so rude to him, and for some strange (pfft) reason, it actually matters to him what the big-eared bean-stalk thinks of him.

I think the rest should be obvious from here.

Notes about the following snippet: Yes, the music here is Ramalama Bang Bang. It's a seriously sexy song, just FYI. And if you're wondering how Arthur looks, this is where I've looked to for inspiration. Just... imagine that stuff on Arthur's entire upper body. *distracted* Uhm... yes. Moving on.

Working title: "MerlinCrossover."
Fandom: BBC Merlin / Disney's Sword in the Stone.
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin.
Other stuff: Yeah, I went there.
Word count: 1418 so far.

I know this has been done to death, but I couldn't help it. So there.

Notes: I know this has been done a few times already, but the resemblance between adorably gangly Colin Morgan and Disney's Merlin, complete with crooked pointy hat is just too good to leave alone. Plus, it's my headcanon that Merlin will inevitably end up with a talking owl in whatever incarnation I'm watching. Besides, putting a shippy spin on my childhood Disney is equal parts disturbing and hilarious. :oP

Input wanted.

I have these tiny fics I wrote for... well, my own fun, basically. I haven't posted them because I didn't think they were very good, but maybe someone would like to read them? Please let me know if any of these tickle your fancy:

All of these are in the SPN fandom.

Trials and Tantrums: Kidfic basically. Just an evening in the life of Sam and Dean Winchester, having settled down to take care of Dean's kid. Rated PG or something, not much really happens. Mostly just an excuse to write daddy!Dean and some domestic brotherly co-habitation.

A Thousand Years: Dean/Castiel. Also PG-ish. 900 words. Total and utter pulp romance of the soulmate variety, with a vaguely angsty ending.

Call You Sweetheart: Dean/Castiel. R-ish. 250 or so words of Dean using endearments, and not much else. Schmoooooop.

Untitled: Pre-Dean/Castiel. 500 words. Cas visits a sex shop because he believes in thorough research.

Untitled: Crowley/OMC: Asphyxiation and blood-kink sex. NC-17, 3000-ish words. My RP partner's OC has a thing with Crowley and some dub-con happens. I was told by someone not in the fandom that it was hot, so maybe it's worth a posting.

Untitled: OFC/OMC. NC-17. 2600 words. The RP mentioned above... this one is two of my characters getting it on. Het pwp, a few complicated emotional issues and a little angst, but mostly just porn.

Melt in My Arms: Sam/Gabriel 500-ish words of cuddles.


Like any of them? Lemme know and I'll have them cleaned up for posting. :o)
