brilligspoons: (i hate everyone)
The bad news is, my vacation is over and I'm back at work. The good news is, I've gotten myself addicted to Castle and ship Beckett/Castle like burning, and now I need fic recs. :D?

It was really nice to be home (mostly) for the last week. I slept and watched TV a lot and read a little, and while I didn't get as much writing done as I'd hoped, I feel as though I've recharged my batteries enough to get me through the next couple of weeks. [ profile] paper_tzipporah and I hung out on the 4th; Cathy came up Friday afternoon and stayed through Sunday morning, and we went down to Connecticut to visit John, Jen, and Evan for a few hours on Saturday. Other than that I was on my own. I meant to go down to Cape Cod with [ profile] sky_was_green on Monday, but I started feeling gross and peopled-out over the weekend, so we'll have to go some other time.

Currently slogging my way through 1Q84. I'm enjoying it, it's just...really dense. Like, ridiculously so. I've taken to playing it out in my head as an anime series, which is helping me get into the rhythm of the dialogue and the characters' thoughts (sometimes I have trouble reading novels in translation. See: every Russian novel and play I have ever attempted to get through. Manga and foreign comic books are easier because there are pictures to go along with the dialogue). Still, I'm probably not going to be able to finish it before it's due on Friday, so I'll just take a break before requesting it again.

Joni and I went to see The Heat on Thursday, and it was AMAZING. I highly recommend it, guys. I basically want to cross-stitch samplers of everything Melissa McCarthy said in the movie. There need to be a million more female-led buddy cop movies.

More on Welcome to Night Vale: [ profile] pocky_slash linked to where you can find the episodes (they're all available for free!) here, so I'll just reiterate - they're really great! If podcasts aren't your thing, some lovely person is in the process of transcribing the episodes here! There's an emerging fandom that's produced some wonderful fanart and excellent fic already, too. I have some fic recs, if anyone's interested. Knowledge of events from episodes 19a, 19b, and 25 is kind of important, so. Get on that. :D!

*The Rat and the Ruby Slippers (Carlos/Cecil) [Carlos is having the strangest dreams, and the strangest headaches, like there's something he's supposed to be remembering. Not to mention the intern's wedding coming up, and that new chemical StrexCorp wants him to develop. It's going to be a busy week.]

*The Knowable Universe (Carlos/Cecil) [“Let us approach a much more modest question: not whether we can know the universe or the Milky Way Galaxy or a star or a world. Can we know, ultimately and in detail, a grain of salt?” – Carl Sagan // or, Immediately following the events of Episode 25, Carlos realizes he’s been asking the wrong questions.]

*Somewhere a Band is Playing (Carlos/Cecil) [Cecil and Carlos deal with life, sex, pancakes, and possibly being anthropomorphic personifications. Also, Night Vale history as told by Night Vale, and a step-by-step guide to defying Death. Today's weather is by Ray Bradbury.]

*The Voice of Night Vale (Carlos/Cecil) [Cecil is, at worst, not much longer for this world. (And at best, a bit high-maintenance.)]

There's a decent amount of good stories for WTNV on AO3; these are just a few of my favorites.

Alright, I have work to catch up on. Later.
brilligspoons: (project it baby)
I wrote some things for a fic prompt meme on tumblr! They're all pretty short and generic, but I finally a) finished posting for the prompts people sent me, so YAY, and b) threw them up on AO3 for archiving purposes. I'm toying with the idea of writing North & South ficlets for the rest of the prompts, though I just took stock of all my current fandom obligations, and. That might not happen for a while. Still, I like the idea and will add it to my List of Things I Will Never Get Around to Doing.

ANYWAY, have some links:

3 for Vikings (Fight Me, Unbind Me, Offer Me)

2 for North & South (Love Me, Drink Me)

1 for The Almighty Johnsons (Haunt Me)

And now I will go back to convincing myself that rewriting everything I have so far for BBMU (because I just wrote 400 words that don't quite fit but that I like better than basically all preceding 2800 words) is a terrible no good idea.
brilligspoons: (needs to be least 3 times bigger)
Normally the first day back to work after vacation is terrible, but today is terrible magnified 1000 times. I'm pleased that things seem to have gone smoothly while I was gone, and it's relieving to know that most people managed to do what I needed them to without a lot of problems, but it's those few who just can't get their shit together no matter what that are bugging the shit out of me. Just do what I tell you! Don't argue with me! Those are the rules!


Anyway, vacation was mostly great. The kids were well-behaved 99% of the time, the museum was awesome (except for the panic attack I had), and the private suite we had at Yankee Stadium spoiled me for everything ever. Also we went for manicures on Saturday, and my nails are all glittery and wonderful.

I worked on my big bang a little by repurposing a piece of a Teen Wolf story I'd started last summer and never did anything with. I was bummed that it was just sitting in my gdocs gathering dust, so I'm happy that it was easily editable and fits with what I want to write. Still need to outline the rest of the story, but it's nice to have a beginning at least, you know? (Of course, everything I write now will be jossed by the start of season 3 in a few weeks, but whatever, it can be AU as of season 2, it's cool.)

Uh, I also started watching Vikings. I didn't expect to like it quite so much, but it's pretty great, and I want all of the fic for it immediately. I even wrote a little fluffy thing last night for [ profile] pearl_o. :D? And there's another story I have in the works as of this past Thursday. Most of you probably don't care. )

...that may end up being longer than a ficlet. Balls. But yeah, that's a thing.

I suppose I should get back to work now. Hmph.
brilligspoons: (fffuuuuuuuu)
I NEED A DO-OVER FOR TODAY. ACTUALLY FOR MY WHOLE LIFE. AAAHHHHHHH. But whatever, let's ignore the problem for now.

Last night [ profile] metonymy and I saw The Hobbit together (my third time! I am probably going to see it again on Friday! Look, I need to see it at least five times, because that's how many times I saw the other LOTR movies in theaters). I have a lot of dwarf-related feelings. Uh, mostly that they're a bunch of endearingly idiotic people, but also about them wanting to reclaim their home and no one being willing to help them except this totally unimportant hobbit who didn't even want to go in the first place. I may have spent a lot of time rocking back and forth in bed last night over this.

So, you know. In addition to work being all weird today, I'm getting beaten with the feelings stick. Pretty sure my feel-o-meter is at a solid 9, at least.

And I'm still poking at the coffee shop AU because of reasons.

Bilbo is reluctantly fond of Fili and Kili. Goddamnit. )

brilligspoons: (TWO.WORDS.)
I Saw Three Ships reveals went up today! Was pleasantly surprised and happy to find out that [ profile] metonymy was the one who wrote my gift (which you can read here). :D :D :D And I wrote Between Everything, Yourself, and Home, which was my first (and probably last XD) foray into Revenge fandom. I mean, I liked writing the story and am satisfied with the finished product, but it's not one of those fandoms that I'm super into beyond the show, so. Oh well. It was cool! I would totally consider doing this exchange again next year! More threesomes always!

[ profile] bigbang_mixup signups start on Tuesday! Am signing up to do both mixing and writing again, but someone needs to take my internet away if I even think about taking on two stories this time around. It ended up being okay last year, but I'd rather not attempt that a second time. I will do two mixes, though. I have fandoms picked out for each already (ahahahaha oops), and a character focus for one, so I think I'm in a good place with those.

Tomorrow's Monday. Blegh.
brilligspoons: (time-traveling nazis)
Apparently reccing fics is what I do these days. To be fair, there are so many exchanges and challenges posting/revealing right now, it's kind of hard not to shove links in people's faces, you know? So whatever, I'm sure none of you are actually complaining.

I Saw Three Ships (the threesomes/moresomes anon exchange on DW) posted late Sunday night! The mystery writer who had me wrote an empty hourglass in the sand (Natasha/Coulson/Clint), and it's very pretty. Reveals are going up on the 13th, but if you've spent any time around me, or if you've read my f-locked entries over the last few weeks, I think the one I wrote is pretty obvious. >.> ANYWAY, another 3 Ships fic I really enjoyed was Heard You Fuck through the Wall (Lydia/Peter/Stiles). It's WEIRD and DARK and totally awesome, and I really love the author's style.

I made some other recommendations on Twitter yesterday. There are two Steve/Peggy/Bucky fics that I am 99% sure will interest some people 'round these parts. There's a bunch of other Avengers moresomes - Clint/Darcy/Steve, Tony/Bruce/Pepper/Betty, Luke/Jessica/Danny/Misty, to name a few - and some Doctor Who, Leverage, Sherlock Holmes, Stargate SG-1, Haven, and Luther as well. I haven't read any of these, but I make good mention in case you're interested, friends. It's worth a look-through if you're hard up for fic at the moment.

And here's a mini Teen Wolf reclist:

*You Are Here (Lydia & Stiles gen) [When they cross the boundary into Hale territory, Stiles shifts a little in his sleep, shoulders hunching. Lydia's immunity carries over into most of the supernatural world: she can't be bitten, she can't be poisoned, and she's never been able to do magic on her own. Unlike Stiles, she can't feel the veil that separates Beacon Hills from the rest of the world. Sometimes she wonders if what happened before they left would have turned out differently if she'd undergone some transformative alchemy, but usually she tries not to think about it at all.]

*Some Like It Hot (Stiles/Derek) [All Stiles wants is a night out with the girls but when Derek shows up, things go topsy-turvy very quickly, and he gets far more than he expected.]

*Best Laid Plans (Danny/Stiles) ["You want us to be fuck-buddies so I can get some rebound sex and you can get some experience with a guy?" Danny repeated slowly.]

*set all your regrets on fire (Peter/Stiles) [I’m going to die, Stiles thinks, remembering the last time he saw Peter Hale standing over the trunk of a car. I’m going to die, and no one will make my father eat his vegetables, and he’ll die of a heart attack before they even find my body. // Peter kidnaps Stiles. Meanwhile, a series of gruesome murders has the Argents and Derek’s pack working together.]

In other news, I watched a show about colossal squids last night. It freaked me out a bit - apparently squid eyes scare the fuck out of me! who knew! But not as much as the next episode I watched, which was about humboldt squids expanding their territory for no discernible reason and being pack-hunters and how they're going to eventually rise up out of the ocean and eat all of us.

Remind me never to watch nature shows about squids ever again. :(
brilligspoons: (lydia)
[ profile] tw_holidays reveals went up this morning! And now that they have, I can actually post about the stories I wrote for it. I've been DYING to do so since posting started on 12/1 - I thought today would never come.

ANYWAY. Links below go to AO3.

1) Leaving Out the Whistles and Bells for [ profile] oldsmobile_98 (Derek/Stiles, sex pollen...sort of)

2) A Little Bit Farther Off the Ground for [ profile] mosca (Danny/Stiles, spaceship AU!)

3) Are You Satisfied (With an Easy Ride) for [ profile] espressopotluck (mostly Lydia gen with background Lydia/Jackson, Lydia/Erica, and Derek/Stiles)

And [ profile] geegollywiz13 wrote Laced in Pink for me! It's Lydia/Stiles/Derek with bonus crossdressing!

brilligspoons: (balls)
Dear Sailor,

Hi! First of all, I am SUPER EXCITED to read your story when it gets posted, and I hope that you have an excellent experience writing it. :D Second of all, I'm pretty terrible at remembering things I like/don't like to read when I have to write stuff like this. I'll do my best to cover all the bases, but if you have any questions after going through this letter, you can always contact [profile] darthjamtart and ask her for further prompts or whatever. She doesn't bite, and she won't reveal your identity to me no matter how much I nag her about it, I promise.

So! Basic things I like to read include but are not limited to: fluff, humor, cuddling, pining, angst, and hurt/comfort. Things I DON'T like to read include but are not limited to: cheating/infidelity, misunderstandings, embarrassment/humiliation, character death, and character bashing. I enjoy fics of all ratings, and I'm cool with most kinks (except ones that involve bodily functions). If you want a sample of fics I've enjoyed in the past, feel free to peruse my pinboard account.

Now for the specifics!

Request 1
Fandom: Teen Wolf
Threesome: Stiles Stilinski, Vernon Boyd, Erica Reyes
Moresome: Isaac Lahey, Derek Hale, Lydia Martin
Prompt: belonging/acceptance

I have a lot of thoughts and opinions on Boyd and Erica and their reasons for choosing to take the bite from Derek. It'd be cool to read a story, maybe a futurefic, where they've grown into themselves and provide Stiles with that same feeling of acceptance. Don't feel like you need to include any of the characters in the moresome if you don't want to!

Request 2
Fandom: Hawaii Five-0
Threesome: Danny Williams, Chin Ho Kelly, Kono Kalakaua
Moresome: Steve McGarrett
Prompt: family dynamics

I would love this story to include all four of them, but it's cool if it doesn't. I adore fics that explore how the team functions as a family. It'd be really awesome if the story included helping Danny with Grace and how she helps bring them all together, or something similar. :)

Request 3
Fandom: Avengers Movieverse
Threesome: Phil Coulson, Natasha Romanoff, Clint Barton
Prompt: cuddling (for warmth, comfort, whatever)

I love fics that explore their shared past, so anything that involves that works for me!

Request 4
Fandom: Teen Wolf
Threesome: Stiles Stilinski, Chris Argent, Peter Hale
Prompt: angst

Shhh, just go with it. >:D Look, when the characters are right for it, I really like age differences and all that, so. Yeah.

Happy writing!

Margaret <3

Felt gross and yucky all morning. But I managed to get out of bed and do stuff this afternoon, so I'm calling today a win. Now I just need to fold and put my clothes away so I can actually, you know, sleep on my bed.

...I'll get to it eventually.

Anyway, I have more Teen Wolf recs for those of you who are interested. :D


*Up All Night (always-a-girl!Derek/always-a-girl!Stiles) ["See if I ever cuddle you if you get ghost hypothermia," Stiles said. // Or, the one where they both get ghost hypothermia and shenanigans ensue. cisf!Derek/cisf!Stiles.]

*Painted By Numbers (Lydia/Stiles) [Of course, he does it for Lydia. She doesn't tell him what she's measuring him for and he knows better than to ask, but when he turns up to their next session to find a bag waiting on her bed, he knows what he's meant to do.]

*Bound Fast By Cords of Affliction (Isaac/Stiles) [Another day, another abduction. This time at least Stiles has company. But Isaac's memories aren't making things easy for either one of them.] [references child abuse]

*Somewhere with Your Back to It (Allison/Stiles) [Like a prize but not because they’ve both made it here, still standing, and now they’re carving this out just for themselves, something new and different and holy hell. Better. // Allison and Stiles begin.]

*You Taste Like Glitter (Danny/Stiles) [There was a time in Danny's life when he'd have sworn he had better things to do than sit in a club and check out the latest guy his ex is trying to hook up with. That is not the case tonight.]

*bleed you dry (Danny/Stiles, Peter/Stiles, refers to Danny/Peter/Stiles) [Okay, so maybe Danny's type is Serial Killers.]

*Together for Warmth (Allison/Scott/Stiles) [Allison, Scott, and Stiles keep each other warm. In more ways than one.]

*The Cold, The Dark, & The Silence (Allison/Stiles) [Allison just gives him a smile and says, “It’s okay, Stiles. That’s okay.” / It’s really not okay but Stiles can deal with that later.]

*There is a Brotherhood (Derek/Stiles) [The one where pledge brothers Stiles and Scott start a prank war with Derek Hale's fraternity.]

*Full Sun (Derek/Stiles) [Just in case they need a spark, Stiles concentrates, believes, really hard when he pushes each seed down into its little cup, and when the first new-green sprouts push up out of the soil and reach toward the sun, it does feel like magic. / The first time he really gets his hands in the earth, dirt jammed so deep under his fingernails he's never going to be able to scrub it out, back aching, frantic brain quiet for once, he knows it is.]

*Next Thursday (Danny/Stiles) [In which Stiles Stilinski has a werewolf for a best friend, a support group for that, hot chocolate with Lydia Martin and Danny Mahealani every Thursday evening, and an extremely anticlimactic coming out experience.]

*Amber Courage (Boyd/Stiles) [After the pack defeats the Alphas, Boyd and Stiles lay low together.]

*Spark, Smolder, Catch (Derek/Stiles) [When Stiles starts pulling down Derek's burnt-out house, Derek finds himself letting him. He doesn't know why. // Wherein Stiles and Derek are both broken and doing more damage might just be what they both need to move on.]

*This is Ridiculous (Derek/Stiles) [There's a unicorn in Beacon Hills. A fricken' unicorn. In fricken' Beacon Hills, California. And it turns out that unicorns aren't drawn towards virgins in a happy-go-lucky let-me-lay-my-not-at-all-metaphorical-horn-in-your-lap way. No. They kill them. And guess who's the only virgin idiotic enough to get sucked into the Beacon Hills supernatural scene? Stiles, that's who.]

*The Cards All Fall (Peter gen with background Derek/Stiles) [Peter needs his revenge. But for that, he can't be under constant surveillance. And so he comes up with a plan to distract Derek and Stiles with each other. Things go as expected, and then they don't. // AKA That one where Peter makes everyone's lives a little better completely by accident.]

*Seven years and a new skin (Isaac/Stiles) [It's not that Isaac heals, because he doesn't.]

*Off The Record (Isaac/Stiles, Isaac/Stiles/Danny) [There really can't be any room for scared in this equation.] [sequel to above]

*Hide Of A Life War (Derek/Stiles) [The one in which Stiles has lived to (legal) adulthood and, along the way, become a bit of a badass himself.]

*Figure 8 (Derek/Lydia/Stiles) [They are the frayed ends of braided rope that have soldered together after the blasts of heat - the bits that still remain, forever entwined, until there's no way they could ever breathe apart, in a tangled web only found when someone goes walking straight into it. The choice that comes with the stranger is far more difficult to deal with than the enemy himself.] [post-apocalyptic]

brilligspoons: (ms. marvel)
I really have way too many fics to start/finish to get into this one at the moment, but goddamnit, this sounds like the best fic idea ever. So, first of all, if you aren't reading Kelly Sue DeConnick's Captain Marvel, you should start. It's one of my favorite series right now, and it's pretty much amazing, and I love everything about it. THESE ARE ALL VALID REASONS FOR YOU TO START READING, OKAY? Anyway.

But but but in #1, there's some really great interaction between Carol and Steve that made my heart grow three sizes. I have a Serious Thing for platonic friendships between men and women, and it just hit me in all the right places, and I really need for there to be more of it immediately. Uh, and then a while back on tumblr, someone (maybe [ profile] metonymy?) said something about wanting to read all the Carol+Steve fic? And, oh god, I want to write about them going on a road trip together so badly.

And, like, Carol is still on the tail end of her identity crisis (or something), and she needs to get away from the dog-and-pony show that being an Avenger entails these days. I feel like Steve has this open door policy with pretty much everyone? So she shows up in the middle of the night and wakes him up and is like, "We have to go now." And he's all confused, but she pulls him out of bed and throws clothes at him and packs some stuff in a bag.

Then he's all, "Maybe I should say something to Tony...?" And Carol just says NO, HE'LL TRY TO TAG ALONG, THIS IS A TONY-FREE ROAD TRIP.

And then they travel cross-country and hijinks happen, and it turns out that Steve really needed to just have a couple days to himself as well. Just, I mean, everything that happened/is happening with Osborne, and trying to deal with Tony without getting into yet another screaming match, plus all the other shit going on that the Avengers have to deal with - it's gotta weigh on a guy, you know? So the two of them drive all over the place and have a week and change to just be regular friends on vacation.

But, you know, I should probably finish the Raven/Angel florist AU, and the XMFC Parasol Protectorate fusion, and get started on my Teen Wolf big bang, and the Stilinski family feels fic I started for [ profile] mcwonthelottery the other day, and and and. Oh god.

brilligspoons: (keysmash)
So Teen Wolf fandom has been really bad for me in that I've started following works in progress because a lot of the longer, really good fics are still being updated and also I have no impulse control. I KNOW, OKAY? It's awful. I can't believe it's come down to this. But whatever, some of them are just wonderful, and a decent amount are updated regularly, so.

The thing that makes this somewhat less stressful and annoying is being able to subscribe to fics and series on AO3. It's actually kind of exciting for me - I tend to forget what happens in most stories between me reading and them updating, so it's like I get to fall in love all over again every time I get an email reminder? Shut up. ANYWAY, I was going to make a rec list for this fandom anyway, and I'm going to include the works in progress I feel are worth following. I'll note them as such, of course. Fair warning.

For the record, this is my Teen Wolf tag on Pinboard.


*The Strong Scent of Evergreen (always-a-girl!Stiles/Derek) [Derek and Stiles start something new.]

*hyper heart alone (Stiles/Derek) [When Stiles returns home to help his father recover from an injury, he discovers that things have changed somewhat in his absence: Derek is working closely with Stiles' father, around the house and underfoot, generally annoying and disconcerting Stiles with his presence.

Well, Stiles isn't sure you could call all the sex they end up having annoying, but he isn't really willing to call it anything else, either.]

*The One Where Derek Is Courting And Stiles Fears The Zombie/Werewolf Apocalypse (Stiles/Derek) [Written for this prompt: Awkward courtship funtimes! Derek is courting Stiles in the way that all male animals go about impressing their mates. Giving them practical (if weird, like, Derek gives Stiles 10kg of steak) gifts, making a nice home (he starts renovating the old Hale house), weird shit like that. Stiles is oblivious, and Scott keeps sort of helplessly hinting at what Derek is doing to little effect. Make me giggle and squeal into my pillow anon.]

*Worst Case Scenario (Stiles/Derek) [Stiles is good at compartmentalizing bad news. It's partly a learned behavior, and partly because of his well practiced coping technique. It may not be the most emotionally healthy thing to do, but it gets him through the day.]

*Every Step You Take (Stiles/Derek) [Stiles accidentally ends up magically bound to Derek. It’s super.]

*Just Have to Find a Better Way of Communicating (Stiles/Scott/Allison) [Stiles just gapes at Scott as he pulls back from kissing him. Kissing Stiles. With tongue. And then Scott is smiling. Scott says, “Okay, so you have to do it exactly like that to Allison. Exactly, okay?”]

*Trickster Makes This World (Stiles/Derek) [Stiles comes back to Beacon Hills during the new moon in April.]

*Any Way You Slice It (Stiles/Derek) [Wherein Isaac is Derek and Stiles's feelings child and also everyone thinks the end of their amicable buddyfucking was something out of those CW soaps Stiles swears he doesn't watch and tries to get them back together.]

*Bittersweet Between My Teeth (Stiles/Derek) [At first he thinks it's the Adderall - the Adderall, mixed with the Jack and Coke, mixed with whatever else he shouldn't have drank - but this has never happened before, not like this.]

*wild things [series] (WIP) (Stiles/Derek) [Derek begins. Stiles begins. And wild things must always have a king.] [NOTE: The first 3 stories in this series are completed; part four is a WIP.]

*cocaine heart (Peter/Stiles/Derek) [The One Where Peter Turned Stiles Instead of Scott.] [NOTE: dubcon]

*Important Things (Stiles/Derek) [Stiles learns that even with werewolves, giant lizards and psychopathic hunters on the loose, life can still find other ways to screw with you. Case in point: everyone keeps assuming he and Derek are a couple. What the hell?]

*waiting for you to say it first (Stiles/Derek) [Four months they’ve managed to avoid one another. Stiles quit going to pack meetings. He quit doing research unless Scott really, really begged him to. He avoided driving the road that led out to the turnoff to the Hale house, he avoided going to all the spots where Derek might possibly be. Four months, and now, here they are, standing in the Minit Mart, Stiles thinks, staring down at the grimy tiles. He can hear the catch of Derek’s breath, and he closes his eyes and breathes deep.]

*Something You Give Away (Stiles/Derek) [The words were out of his mouth before he could think about finding his filter, before he could really consider just what he was setting in motion.]

*last night's dress (tiptoe out of this mess) (Stiles/Derek) [TFLN: My dad just asked me if my booty call guy that comes over at 3am and leaves at 6 would like to stay for Sunday brunch next week. You in?]

*Tell Me What You Eat (Stiles/Derek) [Stiles drags the paper bag towards him and peers inside. As soon as he opens it, he gets a whiff of delicious chocolate smell.]

*Only If For A Night (Stiles/Derek) [“Here,” Derek pulled Stiles’ red hood over his head and leaned down far too close to his personal space, “Pretend like we’re just making out. Maybe he’ll let us off with a warning.”]

*Worlds That Turn On Their Own (Stiles/Derek) [When Stiles had left Beacon Hills, he'd done it with every intention of never coming back. Ten years later, he finds himself forced back to his hometown. Of course, it's not long before things are just as they had been before -- that is, falling headlong towards disaster, and this time, stopping it isn't really an option.]

*Abbacchio (Stiles/Derek) [“I have a casserole for you,” says Scott.
Stiles triple-takes. “You what?”]

*Like a Melody (it won't leave my head) (Stiles/Derek) [Stiles doesn't notice the constant buzzing in his head until it's gone.]

*some nights (Stiles/Derek) [Derek pisses Stiles off, and Stiles issues an "open-door policy" for the teenaged werewolves in his life. (Which is, really, more of an open-window policy, because seriously: werewolves) After that it is, like, all werewolf all the time.]

*Selected Field Observations on Canis lupis irremotus (Stiles/Derek) [AU - Stiles is going to make Derek internet famous, like that one cat and that other cat. Derek just wants to do his field research.]

*Is Where... (Stiles/Derek) [Derek and Stiles go hunting. Kind of.]

*no time to wallow in the mire (Stiles/Derek) [Derek Hale fails at everything.]

*it spins like a wheel inside you (hints at Stiles/Derek) ["Do you remember your first full moon?" Laura asks. Her front is pressed against Derek’s side, he can feel her ribs under the thin cotton of her Led Zeppelin T-shirt and they’re wedged together on a double bed in a tiny hotel on the outskirts of a small town in North Carolina. ; Derek and Laura before and after the fire.]

*Blood Pounding in Our Veins (WIP) (Danny/Stiles, Stiles/Derek) [Stiles figured that Mrs. McCall finding out Scott’s secret would change things, but he’s completely unprepared for the very first thing she does, which is to invite Isaac to move in with her and Scott. In which Stiles is angry. For some very good reasons.]

*The Carnivorous Animal's Table Manners (WIP) (Peter/Stiles) [Peter has excellent table manners. Even when he's helping himself to a feast.]

*Except What Has Been Forgotten (WIP) (Stiles/Derek) [In which Stiles wakes up with a shiny new case of amnesia and it's immediately obvious that his best friend is lying to him - which might have something to do with the (hot) guy who keeps appearing his room. What the hell has he been doing for the past 18 months?]

*A Fool for Fire (WIP) (Stiles/Derek) [Stiles and Derek see their relationship in two very different ways.] [NOTE: oh my god so much angst, keep tissues handy]

*Ella (WIP) (Stiles/Derek) [There's always going to be another family of werewolves, another family of hunters, and there's always going to be Stiles right in the middle of it. Ten years after high school, after the pack, after Beacon Hills, Stiles finds himself caught up again.]

*Everything You Ever... (WIP) (Stiles/Derek) [Kink meme fill in which Derek realizes how amazing his pack would be if he had Stiles' support and loyalty the way Scott does. Then he realizes he wants more than just Stiles' support and loyalty. Unfortunately, Derek is very aware that he can't have what he wants. Until Stiles runs afoul of a witch. Then Derek realizes he can have ANYTHING he wants, if he's willing to take advantage. He hates himself for it, but he's willing to take advantage.

Expect uncomfortable and inevitable parallels to Kate Argent, Peter being a creeper, and no happy endings)] [NOTE: dubcon/noncon]

So...I'm not going to write this story because my interest in baseball is minimal at best and basically limited to what Steve Rogers thinks about the Dodgers not being in Brooklyn anymore (and also A League of Their Own). Which I think is fair, really. This doesn't stop me from thinking it's a good idea for a fic, of course, but I am probably not the right person to follow through on it.

Background: a couple drinks into our company party on Wednesday, Kait mentioned something about Steve and Tony and baseball and...I don't even remember what else, but it turned into me thinking up an AU where Steve plays for the Dodgers in the years right before the team moves out to LA. Uh, @hubcomics then asked me about them checking for steroids, which. I say let's handwave the whole thing and make Steve's physique a product of a late growth spurt and good living. But also it's, like, 1952 and I don't even know when they would have started checking for drugs and performance enhancers? So whatever, I think we're safe on that point.

I can just imagine Steve falling to his knees on the field after losing the 1956 World Series to the Yankees and shouting DAMN YOU, LARSEN at the sky while shaking his fists. )

In conclusion, you should all just read [ profile] harmonyangel's story, Wait Till Next Year. I guarantee you it is more coherent and wonderful than this mess of an entry.

And now I work. I guess. :\

[ profile] bigbang_mixup was a lot of fun, despite me being a little crazed the last few weeks! Mostly I'm stunned that I was able to write two stories for it - it's just something I didn't think I'd ever do, because words! bah! So yes, I am very excited that these are up and being read and all that, and that [ profile] paper_tzipporah and [ profile] pocky_slash didn't smother me at any point in the last 6 or so months. :D

These were my contributions:

+Make Me Nervous - Suits, Harvey/Mike, 10,026 words - written for [ profile] bloodred0_4's mix if you're gonna do it then do it

+letters for the one who left me behind - XMFC, Charles/Erik, 10 songs - [ profile] the_me09's story can be found here

+The Sebastian Shaw Affair - Avengers/XMFC, gen with background pairings, 11,274 words - written for [ profile] polaris_starz's mix Too Many Dicks on the Dance Floor

I celebrated the completion of these last night by passing the fuck out, which I think is appropriate. Have 3 stories to finish in the next week and a half, but they're all short and already in progress. And then there's the H50 exchange, which I intend to start writing over vacation. I already know what's going to happen in it, too, which is helpful.

*tired flail*
brilligspoons: (worst friend ever)
Apparently we live in a world where I have David Mitchell/WILTY dreams and [ profile] mcwonthelottery does not. I don't really understand it, but that is a thing that happened last night. I mean, I like David Mitchell and all, I just didn't think my admiration had reached dream level already.

Anyway. The weekend was good! I got to hang out with friends on Saturday, and then yesterday afternoon I watched the EE of Return of the King and ended up drowning in feelings in re: Eowyn, Eowyn/Faramir, and the 4 hobbits, as you do. I'm actually surprised at how little I remembered of the extended scenes - it was sort of like watching the whole thing for the very first time again, which pleased me. I'm also (finally) starting to get excited for the first Hobbit movie to be out. I like to think I can trust Peter Jackson not to fuck it up, but fingers crossed, just in case.

In other news, I like it when I'm able to cross things off my lists.

-write the first Queer Fest fic (posting date: 5/28)
-finish the Suits BBMU story and have it beta read (posting date: 6/5)
-figure out where I'm going to host the BBMU mix (posting date: 6/6)
-write second Queer Fest fic (posting date: 6/10)
-finish the Marvel ladies BBMU story and have it beta read (posting date: 6/11)
-write third Queer Fest fic (posting date: 6/16) / I'm about a third of the way through this one.
-write both ZombiFICation fics and submit to mods before 6/23 / One of these has been submitted already.

The Suits story drove me up a wall towards the end, but it's DONE and mostly ready for posting tomorrow. So now I just have to write the rest of the Marvel ladies AU, figure out what I'm doing for the QF fic due on the 10th, and then I' a good spot for a change. :D


I've had the first part of this story in my In Progress folder for months, and I decided yesterday that my reward for finishing the first BBMU would be to work on it. The prompt came off a bingo card, so if you're wondering why the hell I even started writing it in the first place, that would be your answer.

one-sided Steve/Tony, non-explicit bloodplay, sort of. 621 words. )


Back to work! Fuck Monday!
brilligspoons: (amy pond!)
So I'm going to be heading down to Jersey with my cousin and uncle tonight or tomorrow morning, depending on when and what we hear from the rest of the family about the funeral arrangements. I haven't decided whether or not I should pack my laptop with me (doubt I'll have time to write anything - maybe I'll print out my story drafts today and write longhand if I get a chance), but I am bringing my kindle and some books and knitting to keep me occupied. I suspect the drives to and from will be long.

Anyway, could you guys rec some fic to me? AO3 links so I can download them to Darkholme, please, and preferably stuff on the longer side but whatever you've got is good. XMFC, Avengers, Star Trek, H50, CriMinds, Suits, whatever else you think I might like - as long as it's a completed story, which is really my only sticking point.

Current number of words written so far this year! I'm 2K and change behind where I technically should be this month, but since I managed to write ~2200 yesterday, I'd say I'm in a good place at the moment. Mostly I'm just trying to plug away at all the projects I have going at the moment. Since I'm sure you're super curious, have a list of them!

Filed under my In Progress tag on gdocs, the 10 most recently edited are:

-h50 - demisexual!steve
-angel/raven florist AU
-post-peason hardman fic
-Big Bang Mixup #2
-Big Bang Mixup #1
-the most self-indulgent genderfuck romance ever
-h50 undercover whaaaat
-bingo: bloodplay
-adventuring librarian
-in the night life - PP fusion

And there's, like, 20+ other docs in that folder, too.

Uh, yeah. The demi!Steve fic is what accounts for most of my words yesterday (2053 and not really near being finished right now D:), but I also started the Angel/Raven story over again, so. Yes, I know I should be working on the BBs, but apparently I really had to write about Steve and Catherine meeting and starting their relationship and Steve trying to explain how his feelings work to her, okay? Drunkenly. Yeah. #comeatmebro

At some point this week I am going to see if I can access the Mists of Pandaria beta. Saw the list of new features and got REALLY EXCITED about them this morning (11 character slots! new class! a bunch of other cool things that mean nothing to most of you!). I haven't actually played in a while, though - been kind of busy between family things and writing and reading and watching TV, but I'm a little itchy to start up again. Also I...decided to do a faction change on Alundi (once I have the extra cash to do so) so I can run more dungeons and raids with Heriotze. Probably going to make her into a draenei? There aren't that many races that can be paladins, and I'm not really keen on being a human or a dwarf, so my choice is limited. But whatever - purple goat people! Meeeeeh!

But mostly I'm excited to get to futz around with the pandaren. *____*

Anyway. No word on the baby yet. I am tired for a variety of reasons, and also work is driving me crazy today. But it's gorgeous out, so that counts for something, right? Right. \o/
brilligspoons: (ms. marvel)
So, whatever, AO3's down right now, but I have this really awesome Marvel movie 'verse fic you all need to read ASAP - meaning when the site is working again. Silly updates. Who needs them.

The Last Love Song of Anthony E. Stark by [ profile] jibrailis - R - Steve/Tony, background Loki/Sif - After contracting an Asgardian virus, Tony starts forgetting things. And people. And Steve.

IT'S REALLY GOOD. Once the archive's back up, I highly recommend giving it a try.

An explanation of sorts. )

I have one episode of Hawaii Five-O season 1 left. Kind of scared to watch it, BUT. I'll do that tonight and let you guys know if I die or not. The last few episodes have made me clutch my heart all the way through - just. CHIN HO KELLY, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING. KONO, YOU ARE INSANELY BADASS (and also you are Steve Junior and adorable and I love you). DANNY AND RACHEL AND GRACE. STEVE IN SEAL-MODE MAKING A BATTERING RAM IN THE FOREST AND HOLDING IT STEADY WHILE HE TAKES A CALL FROM DANNY.

lskefnlsknfslknf CAN'T. In fact, I can't so much that I bought the DVDs for myself. They, uh, showed up yesterday. \o/ WHAT EVEN IS THIS SHOW, YOU GUYS. :D :D :D :D :D

Okay, so. In honor of Valentine's Day, let's do a commentfic/meme of sorts. Comment with a pairing, and I will write you a few sentences of fic about their ~romantic excursion. Go go go!
