ladydrace: (Sexy Dean)
Working title: "Trouble."
Fandom: SPN.
Pairing: Dean/Castiel.
Other stuff: Noir style AU.
Word count: 470 so far.

This bunny reads pretty much like this. "Dean/Cas Noir AU. Dean is a private eye and Cas is a bar singer. "

Notes:
This bunny is complete self-indulgence, because I know next to nothing about this era. I never watched the Untouchables or anything resembling an accurate representation of this period. All I have to fall back on for this is Bugsy Malone and the episodes of SPN and Castle playing with this type of story. I pretty much only thought of it because Dean looks good in a fedora and Cas would be sexy as hell singing in a smoky bar. I am so screwed.

Also, I think Dean might sound too much like a caricature in this, and that wasn't really my intention. Oh well.

Snippet, although not really, because this is all of it. )
ladydrace: (Free Hugs)
Working title: "4some."
Fandom: SPN.
Pairing: Dean/Castiel/Sam/Gabriel.
Other stuff: God, I hope I finish this at some point.
Word count: 1286 so far.

This happened because I fell in love with Team Free Love! (The foursome pairing of Dan/Cas/Sam/Gabe, for the uninitiated.) And much to my dismay, there's just not enough fic of them. So I set out to write one. No real plot planned. Just wanted some fic of my OT4.

Notes:
This is one of those fics that pretty much grow a plot as I write. So far it's just vaguely post-not-apocalypse getting-together fic. Which is fine in itself, but these things have a way of becoming more plot heavy as I write. So who knows, it might end up becoming more. But if nothing else, I managed to write an adorable opening scene of waking up in bed for the four of them. :o)


Snippet. Or more like a chunk, really. Whatever )



ladydrace: (No Het Merlin)
Working title: "Squire Duties"
Fandom: BBC Merlin.
Pairing: Merlin/Arthur.
Other stuff: ---.
Word count: 400-ish so far.

This is basically a "Merlin discovered gay sex" bunny.

Notes: Thing is, I imagine most of Arthur's knights have squires. Not that we really ever see them, but still. But we all know that Arthur seems to rely on Merlin for all those squire things. Carrying his jousting lances, taking care of his horse, cleaning his armor...
So the bunny goes that Merlin walks in on one of Arthur's knights (I picked Sir Kay, just because), being "serviced" somehow by his squire, and at first he's horrified, because he thinks that the squire is being raped. But shortly he realizes not only that the squire totally loves it, but also that this is a regular occurrence. And somewhere along the way, whatever is being said (I haven't figured out the details yet) makes Merlin wonder if this thing is something all squires are expected to do. Which in turn makes him wonder why Arthur doesn't have a squire, and from there to wondering if this is something Merlin is supposed to offer Arthur as well.


Snippet. )
ladydrace: (Special Agent Castiel)
Working title: "Blood of the father."
Fandom: SPN.
Pairing: Dean/Castiel.
Other stuff: Just a bunny.
Word count: None yet.

This bunny was jotted down like this:

Cas gets trapped in a ring of something-or-other. Holy fire plus an inventive spell that requires the blood of the father to be broken. Since Cas' father is technically God, the creators thought that he would be trapped forever. But the person making the spell didn't understand how angels are made and Gabriel happens to know that Castiel stems from Michael, so with a little tweaking, they make it so that Dean's blood can undo the spell, since he's Michael's vessel. Dean's is slightly creeped out by this, since that makes it just that bit more wrong to be lusting after Cas. Hello daddy issues.



Notes:
This bunny was born from yet more musings on angels. Specifically how they're created. I had this idea that the archangels were shaped by God, but that all the lesser angels were sort of off-shots from the archangels. Not children as such, but sort of plucked out of their grace. So Castiel, the good soldier, was made from Michael's grace. Castiel, and probably all the lesser angels, are largely unaware of this fact, or at least not usually told who they stem from. I would have loved some mild emoting from Cas, wondering if this means he should feel more connected to Michael or something, maybe with a little help from Dean's firm opinions on family.

But mostly, I think I was just looking for an excuse to give Dean even more daddy issues. Because his angsting is delicious.

I have no real plot for this, so I doubt it'll ever be a complete fic. But I might write down a couple of scenes for the heck of it at some point. Only time will tell.
ladydrace: (Sowwy Cas)
I might be posting a little much currently. I'm just a little desperate to clean up my WIP folder, so I'll probably end up posting a lot of little ficlets or anything else that can be made easily postable.

Just consider yourselves warned.

That is all.
ladydrace: (Plotbunnies From Playboy)
Working title: "Iron Man Crossover"
Fandom: SPN / Iron Man.
Pairing: Dean/Tony.
Other stuff: Yeah, I went there.
Word count: 356.

This tiny thing was born from a chat with [livejournal.com profile] martiya_khvar where we agreed that anything can be crossed with Iron Man, with the understanding that Tony sleeps with anybody.

Notes:
This is something that will probably never be anything more than it is. It's too long for a drabble and too short to be a real fic so I'm unsure what to do with it. I had some vague (but ambitious) ideas about maybe making it massively longer and maybe even having Dean end up being War Machine or something. But I know entirely too little about the Marvel universe in general, so I think I've officially given up on adding more to it. But it's a cute little snippet and I like how Tony's voice came out.


Snippet: (Only not really, because this is all of it.) )

ladydrace: (Garak and Bashir Cuddle)
Working title: "Bashir Junior"
Fandom: Star Trek, DS9.
Pairing: Garak/Bashir.
Other stuff: Please ignore the stupid title. It was purely for filing purposes.
Word count: 11.200 words so far.

This WIP is old. Old as balls. Not even kidding. I started it back in 2008 and somewhere in the middle of 2009 it kinda dried up. I've been poking at it lately, because really, all it needs is the grunt work of typing it up. I have the plot laid out on my head. I just need to grit my teeth and goddamn get to it, already. Also, it'll probably end up being at least 20k words. God help me.

Notes:
It's a post-series story, set roughly 25 years after WYLB. Garak had (foolishly perhaps) decided that not keeping in touch with Bashir was best for all of them, and while he regrets this decision somewhat, he's lost as to how to change things. Meanwhile Bashir went back to Earth, got married, had a son and started teaching at the Academy. His wife later died, but Bashir still stayed, mostly for the sake of his mother and later his father when he ended up a widower. He tried contacting Garak repeatedly, even though he never got any reply. Garak kept up to date with Bashir's life, but is still taken utterly by surprise when suddenly one day, Bashir's son turns up on Cardassia Prime, falling practically right in Garak's lap. Thus begins a new era of Garak's life, once again a Bashir being the one bright spot in Garak's gloomy existence.

But from what the son has to tell, it looks like maybe Garak is going to have a second chance to make things right with the father.

ladydrace: (Snap fingers Gabriel)
Working title: "You're Contagious, Baby!"
Fandom: SPN.
Pairing: Sam/Gabriel... maybe. Not sure yet. A smattering of Dean/Cas.
Other stuff: I hate the first chapter with a vengeance...
Word count: 9700 words so far.

Jesus Christ, this bunny went off like a damn rocket, reaching 8000 words before I even knew what hit me... and then it screeched to a halt for no good reason. I desperately want to finish it, but I greatly fear that this might require at least another 10k words to finish, if not more! And that's scary!

Notes:
Basically, this bunny was just meant to be: "Sam gets trickster powers, Gabriel agrees to teach him to use them, shenanigans happen." How the hell that went on to become something like an entire season 5-6 AU, I have no clue. I had a vague idea of making it Sam/Gabriel, but so far the boys are playing really hard to get. Not normally a problem for my shippy tendencies. Also, at first my plan was to make the powers temporary for Sam, but the way the fic is going, it's totally not gonna end that way. Seriously, my muses are just being manipulative bitches with this fic. Every time I think I know where it's going, it takes another unexpected turn. The only thing that seems to be pretty much a steady theme is that Dean and Cas are disgustingly in love, but of course not acknowledging it in any way. U.S.fucking.T. And poor Sam is kinda sick of it. Just for that, I think he deserves to get laid. And if nothing else, Gabriel is full of ideas in that regard.

Working title: "Five Times Dean Was Left Hanging, And One Time He Wasn't."
Fandom: SPN.
Pairing: Dean/Castiel.
Other stuff: Cracky.
Word count: 1900 words so far.

This is the first (and will probably be the only) time I try my hand at the famous "5 times" plot. Again, it's a matter of loving to read them, but hating to write them. Don't ask me why.

Notes:
I'm really mostly adding this to my 100 things because it's so close to finished it's actually ridiculous. I just need to write maybe 300 words of smut, and that's it. Done. Why I've so far been unable to put out is beyond me.

Also, the snippet I've chosen is a spot I keep coming back to, because I simply can't decide if it's too cheesy or just cheesy enough to be epic. I change my mind every time I look at it, sometimes loving it, other times hating it. Comments on this would be awesome.

ladydrace: (Free Hugs)
Working title: "A Place In Time." (totally ripped off from the 4400 theme song)
Fandom: SPN.
Pairing: Dean/Castiel.
Other stuff: Season 5 AU.
Word count: 2200 words so far.

This WIP was born from musings over the SPN episode "The French Mistake". The idea that there are so many more universes to play with made my last resistance to my schmoopy domestic Dean/Cas bunnies crumble completely. Not that I mind domestic fics at all, I just don't like writing them all that much. Joke's on me, clearly.

My bunny was jotted down like this:

Dean is breaking inside after his trip to 2014. Castiel decides to do a little time jumping of his own to find a more hopeful future to tell Dean about. Sadly, he's too emotionally invested and his intense hope that he will find a happy Dean directs him to a different timeline parallel to his, where Dean and Cas live together in domestic, fluffy happiness. Castiel still hasn't figured out what all his feelings for Dean really mean, so seeing that future makes him very confused and even more emotional. So when he tries to travel back to his own time, he only manages to travel back in the timeline he's already in, finding out how he and Dean began in a different way.


Notes: This is pretty much an excuse to write pure sap. I don't know why I normally resist this so much, but whatever. I'm still sort of conflicted on how Cas makes the actual jump, since he's still fairly low on power at that time and Balthazar needed to do some sort of ritual to get Sam and Dean to the other universe. But I get the feeling that God is looking over Castiel's shoulder a lot, considering how many times he's been brought back to life, so I always have the option of just saying "God did it." Cheap, but doable.

In this other universe, things are pretty much the same up to season 5. Certain things might be tweeked, but so far I stick to Sam putting Lucifer back in the cage. Only real difference is that in this world, Dean and Cas actually managed to get together, and when God brought back Cas after Lucifer offed him, he also popped Sam out of the cage, all full of soul and everything. Probably Adam too, for good measure. After Lucifer being popped back in the cage, his minions sort of slithered away and hunts became fewer and far between. So when a kid was pretty much dumped in his lap, Dean decided to just say screw it all and aim for an apple pie life. (With hunting on the side, because he's still Dean.) I have the entire freaky story of how they happened upon a newborn baby in my head, but I'm not sure it'll end up even being put into the fic. But if I do get it typed out, I guess I can always just add it as sort of an outtake or something.

I'm still not sure what to do with Sam in the other universe. I think he'd still be hunting, but I also think he'd jump at the opportunity to settle down. I'd like for him to also have a family, but with who, I'm still unsure. I'm tempted to bring back Gabriel, but I'm not sure it fits this fic all that well. So who knows. Maybe Sam and Adam will just shack up and be messy bachelors together. *shrug* I don't think I'm really up for writing too many OCs for this one. The little kid is giving me enough headaches.

The focus of this fic isn't even supposed to be the fluff. It's supposed to be about Castiel's internal struggles to figure out what all these pesky emotions are all about, but we'll see how well I manage to pull that off.

ladydrace: (Plotbunnies From Playboy)
Working title: "Dibs."
Fandom: SPN.
Pairing: Sam/Gabriel (possibly some Dean/Cas later on).
Other stuff: Angel/human AU.
Word count: 2300 words so far.

This WIP was inspired greatly by the many and insanely long works of [livejournal.com profile] gedry . Her fics are always detailed and entertaining, and evidently also inspiring. Originally this idea spawned as a simple office AU where both Sam and Gabriel were humans, but the angel angle (lol, pun, kinda) kept teasing at the back of my head, so I went with it. It was also meant to just be a cute, fluffy romance thing, but somehow my brain keeps adding more stuff to it, so who knows where it might end up!

Notes: The idea is that Heaven is sort of a world in itself, like Earth, but existing in a sort of parallel dimension or something. I haven't worked out the details yet. My initial thought is that somewhere along the line humans mutated, and angels developed as a sort of offshot from the human gene pool. There were only very few of them compared to the billions of humans, so even though they had what we would call magical abilities, they kept to themselves and eventually created the pocket of reality which would eventually be known as Heaven, because... well. Angels.

Over time, they developed their own social norms, and inevitably, some angels decided they didn't like those norms and ran off to live with humans. At some point in time, this became a public matter for Earth. I choose to think that it would happen with a minimum of panic, once it became clear that the angels had no huge apocalyptic powers when they're on Earth. Just stuff like enhanced empathy, minor telekinesis and wings they can choose to conceal in a pocket dimension or whatever. Fuck this fandom, I'm totally into wings now, dammit. Anyway, since they only have what could be described as party tricks, all humanity did was to lay down some restrictions for use (only in their own homes or a few specialized jobs) and then let them live like humans.

In my head, Gabriel left heaven because he was basically a one-night-stand kinda guy, and angel society is very much into the whole no-nookie-before-marriage deal. Plus, in my mind, the angels ended up being somewhat disdainful over emotional outbursts, so they would come off as kinda Vulcan to most humans. Gabriel just isn't like that. He's a fucking hurricane, so he just didn't fit in. Castiel ended up going with him, because their family was planning to marry him off to some angel chick, and not only did he not love her at all, he was also much more interested in people of the male persuasion, which didn't go down well with their parents. So they went to seek asylum with the humans. Gabriel loves it there. Castiel is more awkward, but still ended up pretty content. Enter Sam and Dean. The focus will be on Sam and Gabriel, but I do hope the fic leaves me some space for a Dean/Cas subplot.

So, I've decided to go ahead and do this 100 Things Challenge. I may or may not end up regretting it, but since there's no deadline, I probably won't stress out over it too much. And since there's no rules for how often to post, I can't even promise any sort of regular updates on it. I may post 3 entries in one day and then nothing for 2 months. We'll just have to wait and see.

My challenge will be: 100 WIPs or plot bunnies of mine, which I hope to finish, or just really like. With a little luck this may actually help me finish a few things too. Hope dies last, after all.

I expect I'll be posting snippets, musings, random plot notes or research plans. Whatever the fic or bunny in question demands.

This should be fun!




{Take the 100 Things challenge!}

ladydrace: (Plotbunnies From Playboy)
Hmm. I'm really damn tempted to do the 100 Things Challenge. Because I think I have an idea on how to make it a multi-purpose challenge for myself.

See, I have at least 100 WIPs or at the very least plot bunnies lying around. I suspect that if I posted snippets and maybe even shared some of my thought processes behind them, then maybe I'd end up actually finishing some things. And that would be seriously awesome!

What do you guys think? 100 posts about fics that aren't finished? Torture? Teasing? Insanity?

It's tempting, that's for damn sure...

Tagging myself, like a boss!

1. Go to page 77 (or 7) of your current ms.
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written.
4. Tag 7 other authors. If you would like to do this meme, consider yourself tagged!


Because this WIP started off in a whirlwind of typing, reaching 10k in next to no time... and then fizzled horribly. Which is unacceptable. So I shall use this meme to poke at it with the proverbial pointy stick. The original plan was to make it a Sam/Gabriel fic, although the slash seems a long way off still. Also includes Dean/Castiel, but so far mostly cracky. Which is okay. (Also, lol! The section below turned out to be one of the best bits. Win.)

..............


Gabriel was shaking the hand he touched Sam with, as if he really did touch a live wire, and quirked a displeased eyebrow at Dean. “Seriously, would it kill you to ask nicely every once in a while?”

 

“Pretty please, with a fuck you on top?” Dean quipped, his lips tight with annoyance.

 

“You better hope I never take you up on that, handsome,” Gabriel countered. This prompted Castiel into speech.

 

“Gabriel, please,” he said, sounding more like a mother gently scolding a child, than a brother asking for help. It did seem to have the desired effect of cooling the tempers and Gabriel eventually sat down, snapped himself up a candy bar and explained.

 

“Well, kids. It would seem we've hit a bit of a snag with Pestilence.”

 

Dean blinked. “Wait, I thought he was gone.”

 

“He is. If not forever, then at least for the next couple of centuries. But apparently the sucker went out with a bang,” Gabriel replied, unconcerned. When Dean started making impatient hand gestures, Gabriel rolled his eyes and continued. “It would seem his last act in this life was to make me contagious.”

Dun dun duuuuun!

From a sudden and totally not thought through bunny. SPN AU Sam/Gabriel. And since I only have 2½ page so far, I started from line 7, ignoring the page count.

------------

“Your type is young, cute and corruptible. Plenty of those around. Besides, if he's not into guys, you get your shot. Oh! That reminds me,” Gabriel said, while digging his cellphone out of his slightly too tight jeans. He thanked himself mentally for wearing his look-at-my-ass jeans for work this morning, while tapping out a short text and hitting send. Not thirty seconds later, the door to one of the adjacent offices flew open and Balthazar stuck out his head, scanning the cubicles for Gabriel.

 

“What the hell's that supposed to mean?” He frowned when he found Gabriel. “Dibs? On what?” Gabriel just grinned broadly, leaving Ruby to heave a tortured sigh and point a brief thumb in the direction of Mr. tall, floppy-haired and adorable, who was currently trying to puzzle out the floor plan on the wall, which probably hadn't been updated since the late 60's. When Balthazar spotted him, he rolled his eyes, but still sent Gabriel a good-natured smirk. “Let me know when he gets sick of your sugar addiction and Ruby's plans for world domination. Then I'll be here to show him a really good time.”

 

“In your dreams, B!” Gabriel yelled at Balthazar, whose only reply was to slam his door shut. The raised voices seemed to catch the attention of the newcomer, but he quickly averted his eyes when Gabriel caught him staring. And was that a blush on those smoothly shaven cheeks? Even with the sideburns, which frankly would look more at home in the times where the floor plan was new, the look was endlessly endearing. And hot. Gabriel had such a thing for the tall ones, but the youth and shyness was totally a bonus.

 

Gabriel spent a brief moment debating whether he was actually too old to be going for the guy, but then he remembered that it was either him or Ruby. Balthazar would at least make sure the guy knew that it was just sex, but Ruby liked to mess with emotions and oh boy, this kid looked like the type she would gobble up and spit out in quivering chunks once she was done with him. Gabriel liked Ruby, because she was a good friend, and part of being her friend meant accepting that she was horrible in relationships.

 

Not that Gabriel had the best track record either, but at least he always tried to do right by the people he was with, no matter what exactly was on the table. For the moment, all Gabriel knew for sure was the he wanted to get much closer to the newcomer and his life had taught him that avoiding risk taking was pointless. So he smoothed back his hair, hitched on his best confident smile and strode over to the object of his attention.

 

“Hi there. Can I help you?”

 

The guy jumped and turned around to face him. Gabriel guessed that the kid had tried to politely ignore the commotion earlier by pretending to be really interested in the damn floor plan. Apparently a little too well, since he looked mildly shell shocked when Gabriel spoke.

----------

Not sure if this will go anywhere or not, but it's what I've had open for a while. I think it's laughing at me.
 


ladydrace: (Geek Kissing tip 4400 het.)
Now for something more pleasant.

There's next to nothing fandom related going on either on Dreamwidth or Livejournal these days. At least not on my f-list or the communities I frequent. There are some fics being posted, but almost all of them are WIPs, and I just can't read WIPs. Especially not several at a time. It's a mixed problem on my part. I'm so very tempted to read everything, but I get confused too easily and goddammit, if the writing is really good, then the mere idea of the WIP never reaching an ending upsets me to the point of being unreasonable about it. So I prefer to wait it out.

So these days I mostly stick to Tumblr. My Supernatural cravings in particular are being sated there. But wow, I clearly do not take it as seriously as most of my followers/followed do. I don't see it as a serious blog at all, not for me. I'm still having difficulties posting stuff there and the search engine went suddenly from being awesome to impossible. Not sure how or when. :oS I don't really understand the point of the questions and fanmail (isn't it what we do with memes on LJ? Is it something to do with the word limit on asks? I dunno.) or indeed the desperation some people seem to exhibit when requesting it. I hate not being able to leave longer comments on things and reblogging the same post for every single reply in a lengthy debate is just hurting my eyes and my scroll finger in the end.

But it seems to be where everything happens these days. And I do adore gifs to an unhealthy degree. And I seem to have gotten myself a Tumblr wife. Whaddya know. :oP

Apart from that, I sort of half-heartedly check Twitter every now and then. If I'm lucky, I can find a couple of people to IM with a few hours every night. And that's pretty much the extent of my social life. Which I suppose is why I fill my head with fannish pursuits.

Writing:

I joined a birthday fic challenge on a whim and chose a tiny prompt, because I hoped it would be a nice little thing to boost my writing mojo. Of course, it just had to turn into a 10k word monster, which I was seriously worried wouldn't be finished in time. But only last night I managed to reach an ending, and while it's not my best fic ever, I actually think it turned out very well. I do so hope the recipient likes it. :o)

Tumblr also has a Sabriel (Sam/Gabriel) week coming up and I would really like to offer something daily for it. Not sure what it would be, though. Writing would be the immediate choice, but graphics could also be fun. Haven't fiddled with my dear photoshop in ages. But I guess it all depends on energy, time and inspiration. It's from April 1st to April 8th, so I've got a little time to decide, yet. It's perfect, though, because the birthday fic is Sam/Gabriel and is due on the 7th of April. :oP

As usual I have a bazillion WIPs in my folders and I can't seem to focus on one at a time. Most of my writing this year has actually been done in my RP with [livejournal.com profile] martiya_khvar , but I'm doubtful any of that writing will actually interest anybody else. Except maybe the sex scenes. I dunno. Would any SPN fans on my F-list like to read an awful lot of Crowley/OMC sex? Because that's pretty much all that's going on. Best RP ever. :oP

Other stuff:

My embroidery project has pretty much screeched to a halt with all the stressing over all the people and stuff going on in my life, but I have a year before it's needed, since I'm told there's no plans for any sort of baptism or naming ceremony. So the plan is to make the picture a 1-year birthday gift for the baby. I can also report that even though I managed to make an incredibly big fuck-up, I also managed to fix it without panicking. Go me.

My other fannish pursuits involves reading an awful lot of fic. Right now I'm craving smutty Merlin/Arthur or Bradley/Colin fic. Thank god for the kinkmeme. :oP I've also dipped my toe into SPN RPS. I've read a little of everything by now, I think, but weirdly, the only pairing that truly appeals to me in that area is Misha/Jared. I'm not entirely sure why. I just like them together. And it's absolutely no problem for me to have Misha/Jared smut open in one tab and squee over Jared and Gen's baby in another. I'm easy like that.

And while we're on the subject of SPN...

TV: (No real spoilers here.)

SPN: CAAAAAAASSSSSS!!!! OH MY FREAKIN' GOD!! After all the angsting and expecting the worst from Castiel's return episode, we were instead gifted with PURE GOLD! I made so many strange noises I hope my neighbours don't end up thinking some exotic animals are breeding in here. When the trench coat appeared, I fear I may have made a noise not unlike a penguin being strangled. And there are at least 2 more episodes to come!! *runs around flailing arms*

Everything else seems to pale compared to SPN, actually... But in short:

Community got renewed. Yay!
NCIS is good as always.
Castle is going down a notch in my estimation for every episode where the Castle/Beckett part is being ignored.
CSI Miami is now finally behind me. Cannot bear it anymore. *sob*
Fringe is kinda breaking my heart along with my brain. I'm very conflicted about my feelings on this matter, but I'm still totally hooked.
H50 is being entertaining, but unimpressive. Thankfully there is slash. So much beautiful Danny/Steve.

And I think that's it for now.

ladydrace: (Eye twitch)
Dear muses.

You bitches! When I'm finally in the mood to write, what do you do? You act like my brain is a fucking opium den, full of smoke and beanbag chairs! How am I supposed to put anything on paper when all you can offer me is: "Mmmm. So relaxed right now." BITCHES!

If I didn't have a million WIPs, you people would be FIRED!

Wow, sometimes my fic notes amuse me when I look back on what I've jotted down in some dark hour of inspiration.

Stuff like this:

"Big, exciting things happen, lots of light and noise and shit[...]"

Oh, sweet baby jesus on a cracker, I'VE ACTUALLY WON SOMETHING!!

I joined the First Official Birthday Challenge at [livejournal.com profile] sabriel_bday and I actually won! People actually voted for my fic! All right, so there were only 4 entries, but still! I WON! HOLY MOTHER OF JEFFERSON DAVIES, I WON!!

I'm excited. Can you tell??

Photobucket

I'll be posting the fic here shortly!

Oh my goddddddd....

ladydrace: (Default)
When I tell people that I'm obsessed with something new (or old), they tend to assume that I treat all my obsessions the same. But I don't. And I honestly can't tell you why.  Weirdly, every fandom appeals to me differently.

Example:

NCIS. I watch every episode religiously and enjoy every re-run. I know all the characters, I love them and get involved in their stories. Heck, I even bought merchandise. But I feel no need to buy the DVDs, read/write fanfic or otherwise get involved in fandom. I don't care about news about the actors, gossip, plot debates... nothing. I enjoy it purely for its entertainment value.

In comparison:

Supernatural. I watch, read, write, chat, browse and basically eat up every scrap of news available, even to the point of making myself uncomfortable. I read as much fanfic about my ships as I can possibly manage and it's some sort of miracle that I've so far managed to steer clear of any ship wars.

In between these two extremes there are a multitude of gray areas. Some fandoms will only inspire me to read about a single paring, while never watching the series itself again. Others will be the kind I can rewatch endlessly but feel no need to read or write about.

This... was supposed to be a lot longer, but I seem to have run out of steam.
