So I am actually writing stuff for ffw again. I am too lazy (and spoon-deficited) to track badge accomplishment stuff, but I have a personal goal of doing something for each challenge, preferably at least one within 24h of the challenge going up.

Prompt: Fortune
X-Men: Fanfic: Rituals. Old mutants in love. ffw or AO3

Star Wars TFA: fic drabble: Finding Wealth. (Hey, new fandom for me.) ffw or AO3

Prompt: On the Outside
Inside Out: fic: Identity. (Also a new fandom!) On the Internet, no one knows you're a dog... or a girl. ffw or AO3

Star Wars TFA: Fanfic: Lost. Finn isn't quite sure where he belongs. Spoilery. ffw or AO3
ysobel: Daniel, unconscious and hooked up to VR (fic ate my brain)

This is a bit belated and a bit ... lacking in extra babble, but I wanted to link to the fics I (a) received and (b) wrote for [community profile] fic_corner. The former because they're fun and awesome, the latter because hey I actually finished a thing. Two things. (Quite seriously the first stuff I've written since last December.)

So, my gifts:

So apparently remix authorship has been revealed, which means yay I get to babble about my writing process!

Well, actually, first I would like to thank [archiveofourown.org profile] paranoidangel and [archiveofourown.org profile] caitn for their remixings of my work (Feels Like Home (The Green Planet Remix) and Bring the Hammer Down (the Valhalla Epilogue), respectively; the first is SGA and the second is SPN and they are both very much awesome.)

...as for the fics I wrote, if you don't care about the babble and just want to read the stories, it's the top eight listed on my list of works (or, if you're reading this after I've posted more stuff to AO3, it's the ones posted end of April and beginning of May). Star Trek Reboot, Lion King, Narnia, SPN, and White Collar.

assignment! )

pinch hit )

madness )


So there you have it. Eight fics, 7k words, all written within the space of ... er, however long it was. A month, maybe? And given that the eight fics before that were a) two drabbles, b) yuletide fics, b) two not-quite-drabbles, and c) getting into fic written in *August* for kink_bingo... given that in the year before remix I wrote 14 fics, less than twice what I wrote for remix... yeah. I'm pretty damn pleased with myself :D

The ramp to the front door of my church officially was dedicated and opened this morning. At the service I went to, I got to lead the procession. *beams* I didn't cry, but it was beyond awesome.

(...thank fsk for proofreading: the above paragraph was typed as being about the *rap* to the front door of my church. I can't imagine what that would be. Or maybe I can and I don't want to.)


Apologies to anyone following my AO3 account -- I just mass-uploaded a batch of old fic. (Buffy, but I am also going to be adding fics that are more recent but still old -- pre-2005 -- and probably in batches.)

It also means that my list of works is kind of skewed, because it looks like I just wrote a bunch of Buffy fic, which I didn't.


Note: Any of my AO3 works that is tagged with "Imported without cleanup" is /just what that says/. The Buffy fic was via the wayback machine, which means it's got that gunk in it; other fic will have other gunk. I will clean fics up as I have time, and remove the IWC tag when I do.


I am not doing the AO3 meme that's going around, because (before the massw-uploading) I had 21 fics, so top ten is kind of silly. I will, however, note that four of the top five fics are Yuletide fics, which should surprise no one. #5 and #6 are White Collar, which doesn't surprise /me/ since my AO3 account mainly consisted of Yuletide fics, and WC (at all of five stories) was the biggest fandom. Of course, I just uploaded 14 Buffy fic, so that count is skewed too, but, well.


I had a Criminal Minds dream last night where I, as Spencer Reid, was giving the profile of the UNSUB, which included such hilarities as the fact that he owns two mice, both males, and the probability of his eye color being blue (and when someone went wtf, an explanation that "it's good to be specific in such matters").

It was somehow simultaneously a real CM "episode", and a larp of CM where [personal profile] synecdochic was one of the two (male) unsubs, and she had a (fake) peg foot -- not peg leg, mind you; the same principle but just ankle-down -- which I-as-larper (as opposed to I-as-Reid) was trying to figure out how she did, since I knew she really had both feet, until I noticed how wobbly the other foot was too, and realized that she was kind of on tiptoe and the "real" foot was as much a costume piece as the peg foot. And there was duct tape involved.

...yeah, I don't know either...

ysobel: A black floof with cat eyes (floof of doom)
aka a) Yuletide reveal went live, and b) I went on a drabble spree (for definitions of 'spree' that include two). So!

First, the Yuletide fics!

My assignment fic was The Naming of Cats (Echo Bazaar). I am not as happy as I wanted to be because there is less of a narrative and more of a stringing-bits-together, but hey, with Jack as my protagonist I was lucky to get not killed ;)

My pinch hit fic was Honor and Glory (Oglaf). If you are not familiar with Oglaf, it is a very NSFW comic of awesomeness. The only things you need to make sense of this fic are the following three strips: http://www.oglaf.com/honor/ and http://www.oglaf.com/son-of-kronar/ / http://www.oglaf.com/son-of-kronar/2/

And then the random treat was Oart Of Your World (Little Mermaid), aka I seem to like twisting Disney movies into Not Happy Endings. (I am kind of amused that the person I wrote this for wrote one of the awesome dark!Valdemar fics.)


...and then I did drabbles for [livejournal.com profile] whitecollar100 and [livejournal.com profile] numb3rs100 because drabbles are awesome \o/

I actually got a bingo in! before the deadline! I am awesome.

I find it highly amusing that I wasn't able to write White Collar fic until after I'd written a fucking *sestina*. But hey, whatever works.

I'm also amused at hit numbers on the AO3 page. I didn't link the fics anywhere, but I'd gotten a bunch of hits (30-odd, I think) even before obliquely mentioning their existance. Current stats is 0/5/61/67/11; I suspect they will spike now that kink_bingo people have access to them, never mind that there is a flood of posts right now.

Anyway, for those that are interested:

Butterflies (Inception (2010), Ariadne with shades of Ariadne/Eames, sleepy/unconscious)
Summary: Playing around with sex in dreams leads to interesting results. Sort of Eames/Ariadne, mostly not.
Content notes: none

Gestures of Love (White Collar, Peter/Neal, sensory deprivation)
Summary: Peter. Neal. Sex. In sestina form. Yes, I am a dork.
Content notes: none

Home (White Collar, Peter/Neal/El, penance/punishment)
Summary: Peter's work interferes (again!) with a promise to El; and broken promises deserve punishment.
Content notes: none

Captain's Orders (Star Trek (2009), Pike/Kirk, oral fixation)
Summary: In the Mirror Universe, Captains can own whomever they wish -- and do anything they want with them. Pike's got a boy that likes to use his mouth.
Content notes: (skip) Dubious consent situation; both parties are willing but the dynamics of the relationship don't allow true consent.

Expectations (Star Trek (2009), Spock/Uhura, whipping/flogging)
Summary: Uhura has disobeyed Spock's orders, and needs to be punished. Spock is a little baffled by this. (Please read notes for context.)
Content notes: (skip) Dubious or lack-of- consent situation. Spock is not particularly willing, and Uhura doesn't have the option of consenting.

So, Yuletide authors are live, which means I can babble on about what I wrote \o/

First, there is my original story: A Duplicity of Pirates (Princess Bride).

babble )

Due to a quirk of fate, I happened to get the story uploaded early. (Okay, so it was only a few days before deadline, but it was the second fic posted for yuletide this year.) And because of the way things worked, I promised myself that I wouldn't take any pinch hits, since I could write stories for the intriguing prompts without being the official writer.

Which, somehow, turned into responding to a pinch hit email, on the 21st. And actually getting it. Cue the standard reaction of "yay I got the pinch hit oh crap I need to write the story and I only have two days to write it and ack".

So, the second story: Chasing Shadows (Earthsea)

babble )

I had also, by this point, taken to flagging interesting-looking pinch-hit requests, not to be the official pinch-hitter necessarily, but to find things that I wrote. At about 5pm Eastern on the 24th, I found myself insanely deciding to see if I could get any of them written.

Which I did: Bittersweet (Beauty and the Beast, Disney version)

babble )
ysobel: (batman)

I, er, seem to have gotten entangled in this >_> including NCIS and, er, Teletubbies.

Bobby wins a poker game (many <3 to [personal profile] synecdochic for the poker info). Gen. Spoilers for SPN 5x07.

also probably won't make a lick of sense without knowledge of the ep, but who knows )
ysobel: (attacked by a pencil scribble)
I have two new fics for your reading pleasure :D

First, The Naming of Cats, a Good Omens fic written for [livejournal.com profile] wyomingnot for Sweet Charity (very very belated :x). Warning: footnotes.

Second, Blood Sin, a Vagrant Story fic that kind of ambushed me yesterday, about Joshua. Warning: spoilers for the game, and also some amount of bizarreness.

Read and enjoy (and I never object to feedback *grin*)

Fic stuff!

ysobel: A grey Starfleet icon on a blue background (Reboot)
Aside from in-progress fics (and speaking of which, I need to rewatch Amok Time), I have two Star Trek (rebootverse) fics, both for [community profile] star_trek_flashfic, for the Academy challenge:

Title: Conversations
Rating/Pairing: Spock/Uhura PG
Summary: Spock and Uhura, early on (but not at the beginning). Instructors need to be intimidating, but she's always met his strength with quiet fire.

Title: Civil Dialogue
Rating/Pairing: Kirk/McCoy PG-13
Summary: Kirk's stepdad tracks him down, and they have a little chat.
