This is an ex-journal

Hello all!

I think it's pretty clear that I'm really not using this journal anymore. Therefore, this is an official sticky note to say that I will no longer be updating this journal, nor using it to keep in touch with anyone else.

All of the stories that are currently here will stay posted and available. If you're interested in seeing anything new from me, please come find me on my livejournal or my dreamwidth account.

Hugs!

Master Fic List

I've come to the conclusion that these things are super awesome. So here you go.

Master List of Fics )

Breaking news, mostly

I have come up with a masterful solution to my grief at editing my story for [info]spn_j2_bigbang.

BANTER

No, really! It solves so many problems! For example:


  • Transition scenes? Add banter to make it less dull

  • Background info? Use banter to break up the delivery

  • Character development? Banter on top of banter

  • Random encounter? Banter is a completely appropriate attack option

  • Angst? ... okay, probably not so helpful here

  • Sex scenes? Are probably good to go, but there's always room for banter between the sheets (or against the wall, or in the shower, etc etc)


It's actually working surprisingly well. At least for the sections that I'm working on right now.

...It is possible that my story is going to involve a lot of snark. I'm sure everyone is shocked.

Sweet Touch (Jared/Jensen AU)

I should be working on my bigbang. This is not it.

Title: Sweet Touch
Fandom: CW RPS
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Word count: 3570
Rating: G

Summary: Jared loves being a dessert chef even if catering wedding showers doesn't do much for his love life. Of course, this is the first time he's met a maid of honour who isn't a girl.

I had absolutely nothing to do with the planning. You'll have to talk to Jen )

But I'm not actually all that old yet

So as if the xkcd comic wasn't bad enough, I was typing in student emails for the first year Latin class I'm TAing and someone has the year 1991 in her email address. It was quite a shock to realize that, yes, someone who is twenty would have been born in 1991. *boggles*

I'm too young to be feeling old! What the hell am I going to do when I'm, like, 70?

In other news, this post has nothing to do with anything!

Yeah, I know, I know. Y'all should be used it by now (there will be some SPN fic going up today or tomorrow though. And then hopefully some FFVII).

Entertain me!

Right, well, today has been kinda shitty so far, so I need something to distract me. How about some ficbits?

I have a shiny new Master Fic List at the top of my journal (all: ooh!). So you have two options! Give me the title of an existing work (or verse) of mine and ask for either a) a scene from an alternate point of view (i.e. Cid's POV on meeting Cloud in Blood Brothers etc etc) or 2) a timestamp that you can prompt in five words or less.

I've got no idea who reads this thing these days, so let's say a max of ten people and see what happens.

Go?

Rating: PG
Warnings: pining, schmoop and swearing?
Word count: 7945
A/N: Written for square love at first sight on my [info]schmoop_bingo card. Because you can never take a prompt too literally.

Prince Jensen of Ackles was cursed. Or blessed. It depended on whom you asked )

Butter Me Up and Photo Ninja (CW RPS, J2)

Two comment fic reposts.

Title: Butter Me Up
Fandom: CW RPS
Pairing: Jensen/Jared
Rating: G
Warnings: not really
Word count: 700
A/N: Written for the prompt 'making popcorn without a microwave' for the domesticity meme on [info]comment_away. Originally posted here

Summary: Jared's totally got this covered. Jensen's totally not convinced

Seriously Jared, we have microwave popcorn )


Title: Photo Ninja

Pairing: Jensen/Jared
Rating: G
Warnings: not really
Word count: 700
A/N: Written for the prompt 'Jared is always taking pictures of the dog to put up on the fridge/around the house...except when he's taking pictures of Jensen' for the domesticity meme on [info]comment_away. Originally posted here

Summary: Jared's making the world a better place, one sneakily taken photo at a time

His dogs aren't the only things he likes to take an embarrassing number of pictures of )

Jan. 25th, 2011

Closet Case (CW RPS, J2)

I kind of wrote porn! *waves banner*

Title: Closet Case
Fandom: CW RPS
Pairing: Jensen/Jared, with voyeristic Chad and Misha
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: voyerism, bondage, orgasm denial, swearing and Misha Collins' sense of humour
Word count: 660
A/N: Written for [info]blindfold_spn for the following prompt: Somehow Misha and Chad end up in the wardrobe of Jared and Jensen while they have kinky sex in their bedroom

Chad's answering snort would be enough to expose their tidy little hideaway if there wasn't some very loud, very exuberant sex going on in the bed on the other side of the room )

Yuletide cheers

Happy New Year all! I hope it was enjoyable for everyone!

So the first order of business is a great big thank you to Kleenexwoman for writing to my prompt for Sara Bareilles' song Fairytales. Her fantastic story, Fairytales, figures the various princesses as participants in a reality show and looks at the darker side of the happily ever after that each of them was hoping to get. She neatly intertwines the original fairy tales, the song lyrics and her own unique spin on their stories into a whole that is bittersweet but ultimately lovely. This is really clever.

I was at once more and less productive than usual this year. I only wrote my main assignment, since I somehow managed to be both incredibly busy and a major slacker this Christmas season, but it's definitely the longest thing I've ever written in such a short time. It probably could have been easily twice the length if I'd left myself enough time to get really into it, but overall I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. This was a great opportunity to a) challenge myself to write in the first person and b) be as sarcastic as humanly possible. I also got to use my fairy encylopedia as a research tool which is always a bonus in my book.

Title: Rhyme without Reason
Fandom: Dresden Files by Jim Butcher -- If you like magic in the modern world, witty narration and/or detective stories, you should read these books. Seriously.
Rating: G
Characters: Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden, Thomas Raith, Mouse
Word count: 10,304 *fist pump*

Summary: Takes place a few months after the events of Blood Rites. Harry's got a new dog, a new brother and a slew of cases that centre around vanishing animals with anger management issues. Sometimes his life is weird even for him.

It probably said something disturbing about my life that a homicidal goose didn't even rank in the top end of my weird stuff that happens to Harry Dresden meter )

Pearly Whites (FFVII AU, Zack/Cloud)

So I'd meant to have this posted as a birthday present to me, but then I went to Medieval Times instead so you're getting it now. Enjoy!

Title: Pearly Whites
Fandom: FFVII AU
Pairing: Zack/Cloud
Rating: PGish
Warnings: Not really. Mentions of oral sex.
Word count: 2215
A/N: Written for the square playing an instrument on my [info]schmoop_bingo card.
A/N the second: This is a part of my bartender!Zack verse. If you haven't read the other parts, all you need to know is that Zack owns a bar, Cloud is his boyfriend and the Turks are crazy in a band.

Summary: Reno needs a favour. Cloud needs to be somewhere else.

Elena's sick. You're filling in. )

Talking about writing

Yuletide is done and posted! *pumps fist* I may take advantage of the edit option to make a couple small changes between now and Christmas (and I probably want to look at the tagging options because right now I'm only using the character ones), but other than that I am totally on top of things this year (a whole day early! This is a big deal for me guys!).

And now...I have a French exam to study for. orz

I hope y'all are having a good lead-up to Christmas!

Washed Weary - Supernatural (Sam/Dean) PG

Amazingly enough, this isn't the first fandom for which I'm written incest. I am a special child.

Title: Washed Weary
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing: Sam/Dean (established)
Rating: PG
Warnings: Besides incest? Naked boys and schmoop. No spoilers
Word count: 2004
A/N: This was written for the square shower together on my [info]schmoop_bingo card.

Summary: It's been a long day and Sam just wants to get clean and go to bed.

Sam hunched awkwardly, struggling to find his centre of balance in a too-small tub filled with mud and water and slime and Dean. )

Bedtime Politics - Supernatural (Dean, Sam gen)

Wanted to cheer myself up and I found this mostly finished on my harddrive so I figured I might as well get it posted. Wee!chesters FTW!

Title: Bedtime Politics
Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: G
Warnings: none. Pre-series
Word count: 970
A/N: Written for the [info]schmoop_bingo prompt kidfic - bedtime.

Summary: Wee!chester fic (Dean's 7, Sam's 3). Dean's getting better at putting Sammy to bed, but that doesn't mean it isn't a great big pain.

He snuggled in closer to Dean, his little body heavy and warm against Dean's arm.  )

Nov. 22nd, 2010

Sort of like my own personal soap box

I really don't know what to do with myself right now guys. On the one hand, I'm happy because the term's nearly over, my college aps are all submitted and my Yuletide assignment looks like it's going to be awesome.

On the other hand, my kitten died this morning. And now I'm trying not to break down in the middle of the school library.

*hugs everyone* Today is not a good day.

Gratuitous Kitten Pin-ups (CW RPS AU, J2)

Wow. This is RPS. Never thought I'd say that. *falls into abyss*

For those who don't know them, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki are super hot the actors who play Dean and Sam Winchester on the CW's Supernatural. This is an AU, so you really don't need to know much more about them than that to read (though as an FYI, I love them for their banter and general awesomeness. Also, Daneel Harris, Jensen's wife in the real world, and Chad Michael Murray, from One Tree Hill, also appear/are mentioned in this fic). *coughs* Right. Shall we?

Title: Gratuitous Kitten Pin-ups
Fandom: CW RPS AU
Pairing: J2
Rating: PG
Warning: Brief mention of cock
Word count: 1666
A/N: This was inspired by this post about marines in Afghanistan rescuing kittens and is mostly me trying to get a feel for these boys. I am so not to blame for the schmoop.

Summary: Jared somehow manages to be a complete smoosh even while on tour. Jensen doesn't really mind.

Looks like his fondness for taking in strays isn't limited to you and those massive dogs of his, after all )

Sep. 27th, 2010

Sticky Notes (FF7 AU, Zack/Cloud)

Shock and/or surprise! Some actual content for once!

Title: Sticky Notes
Fandom: FF7 AU (OGC)
Pairing: Zack/Cloud and some drive-by Cid/Vincent
Rating: PG for swearing (Cid's in it, what do you expect?)
Word count: 2920
Challenge: This is for the square love letters on my [info]schmoop_bingo card.

Summary: College AU. Cloud hates Mondays. Luckily, Zack is creative.

By midday, Cloud had come to the calm and reasoned conclusion that he was going to throttle Zack. )

Sep. 12th, 2010

Oh dear, I'm trying to embed content again

This has nothing to do with anything, but I think it's pretty fun. Incidentally? One of these idiots is my little brother - a friend of theirs is in India right now and misses being able to eat bagels so he asked for a video of Lou eating a bagel. He got this instead.



And in slightly more topical news, the newest issue of [info]bb_shousetsu is now available! (My contribution is mostly ridiculous, but at least it was fun to write). I haven't made my way through the entire issue yet, but I've noticed that there's a lot fewer comments on the stories than usual - if you like anything, please take the time to let the writers know!

*collapses*

THESIS DEFENSE = PASSED!!!!


*fist pump* Oh god, I'm so relieved, you have no idea.

Jul. 21st, 2010

Me talking about nothing, again

Saw Inception the other day. It was pretty epic. It's been a long time since I've seen a movie that actually encouraged the amount of debate that I've been having with other people who've seen it. And nobody's really wrong because there isn't actually a right answer, which is thematic and clever and not a little bit irritating. In a grudgingly admirable way, of course.

Although now I totally want to write some Eames/Arthur slash.

Also, does anyone else think that Cillian Murphy looks kind of like a shorter version of Tom Welling?

This time next month I (better as hell) will have a completed thesis! All I need to do is finish the damn thing. *dies* Anybody want to do it for me? 110 pages and counting!
