shallowness: Sky High's Warren Peace smiling (Warren Peace smiles!)
On Tuesday I posted my first new fic of the year and the first one for six months: Extreme Action, a Sky High, Layla/Warren futurefic. It was first drafted in July 2015, which wasn’t a wonderful time for me. Having a title that would suit an early 90s action flick better than a fluffy tropefic appealed to me, apparently. Anyway, a couple of months ago, as I was doing looking through some drafts, I found that this one didn’t need much work – usually I have stalled before coming up with an ending. In the editing process, it passed the thousand word mark, et voila.

For completeness on Livejournal: this spring, I’ve also reposted the following fics at Dreamwidth and A03. Read more... )

Apparently some people find round-up posts like this obnoxious. May I suggest scrolling or not clicking? For my part, yes, it's self-promotion, just in case, but it's also a chance to write a little about the writing process or what the fics mean to me. Anyway, if you're interested, over the past week and a half I've reposted the following:

No friend to those with noses (Dark Angel) G. Joshua, Alec. 488 words.
First posted: Late December 2005. Summary: A smelly cat is no friend to those with noses; Joshua has a snout.

A clear view (Dark Angel) PG. Alec, Max, Mole, Dalton (Max/Alec implied). 880 words.
First posted: January 2006. Summary: Alec rescues Dalton, Max is furious at how he did it and Terminal City gets entertained for free.

Days, weeks, months and years (ER) PG. Haleh, Neela and Ray. First posted: February 2006. Two post ‘Dream House’ 12.06 drabbles.

Yesterday, I crossposted: Epicinium (Smallville) Teen. Lois, Chloe, Clark, Gabe, Lana. 2,682 words. Coda for 4.8 ‘Spell’.
Summary: The aftermath of the eighteenth birthday party that Lois and Chloe don’t remember.

Notes )

I don't know if I'll be able to continue reposting fic as regularly, although given that I'm only up to the start of 2006 and only started Dreamwidth in 2009, I don't want to stop again.

This is not news if you read my Dreamwidth account as opposed to my LiveJournal one, but I managed to repost four fics last week, by which I mean posting the text to the original posts at lj and posting them for the first time at Dreamwidth and AO3 (and updating the versions on ff.net). All four are from November/December 2005, two are Dark Angel fics and two are post-Serenity ficlets.

And you will know me by the trail of my asskicking (Dark Angel) R (for language and mature themes). Max/Alec. 2,385 words. First posted: November 2005 (lightly edited August 2016)
Summary: Alec is still haunted by Max. Bitch.

can't wash out the blue (Firefly) PG, OCs, River Tam. Drabble. First posted: November 2005.
Summary: a threat.

Untitled Mal/Kaylee kisslet (Firefly) PG, Mal Reynolds/Kaylee Fry, 227 words. First posted: November 2005. Summary: As per title.

Retrieval (Dark Angel) PG-13. Max/Alec, past Jondy/Alec, 3,103 words. First posted: December 2005.
Summary: Max didn't think; Alec is trying to protect himself. (Author's Notes: 'She Ain't Heavy' ended slightly differently. AU from that point on.)

thoughts )

And then I wrote a new ficlet.

What your mama can make you (Nashville) U. Juliette Barnes, Cadence Barkley, Avery Barkley, (background Juliette/Avery). 237 words.
Summary: Juliette writes a song for Cadence.

I saw the prompt at [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic, wrote a draft, but because I hadn’t seen season 4, I felt I should do some research to avoid it being canon-fodder, which I was able to do on Sunday - I hope it's all right on that front. I blame the prompt for making me thinkof the show.

I've also been working a little on some of my WIPs. Before returning to reposting, I hope to get around to posting about other stuff.

On Saturday night, I caught up with a B99 episode: 2.22 Det. Dave Majors
it was a good one )

I read Robin McKinley’s Rose Daughter, a retelling of Beauty and the Beast. It’s much, much better than her Beauty, another retelling of the fairy tale which it turns out was her first novel and, I’m glad, not the first book of hers that I read. I love the writing, the fantasy setting with its own rules of magic that the reader discovers alongside Beauty (whom I should have found more annoying than I did, considering her traits). I especially liked what McKinley did with Beauty’s older sisters. Recommended if you’re in a mood for a fairy tale retelling in a fantasy setting.

Sorry for the old fic spam on Dreamwidth (and AO3) but it occurred to me on Thursday night that now was a good time to repost old fic. (That’s old fic that’s a decade old. Yikes.) Trying to work out what I was thinking in terms of formatting, titles and archiving a decade ago was a faff initially. I revised one and did a little more to another than correct typos. I was so prolific in 2005 and steeped in Dark Angel fandom, more so than I’ve ever been in the one fandom since as both a reader and writer, but since then I’ve been more multi-fannish and even then, alongside the DA fic, there were Harry Potter ficlets. Um, I may repost more fic over the next few days (but then again, I might not. I intended to post this yesterday.)

The starry dividers are a homage to the fact that I used them in fic in 2005, or at least the fic that were longer than vignettes.

The fics I reposed so far are: Read more... )

Genre: General, angst.
Alec-centric.

Summary: Joshua hadn't thought that the likeness would haunt others.

Notes: Epilogue to 'Snow-wrought' which you really need to read for this to make sense. Contains vague spoilers for the tie-in novels. With thanks to izabelevans for pointing out that I needed to write about Alec's reaction to the sculpture, and to her and lusmeilti for betaing this, all idiocies are mine. Originally written and posted in July 2005, revised June 2015. 1,084 words.

Agents of SHIELD season2 finale

I’ve never got a SHIELD icon. Part of the reason is that my feelings for characters have varied such a lot – except maybe May, but I think other fans love her more fiercely than I do. What I would love is some sort of group or four quarters one of the ladies: Skye, Melinda, Jemma and Bobbi.

IN OTHER NEWS: The rest of Parks and Rec is going to be shown in the UK on Dave, which is not the most obvious fit to me, but it they air it at a reasonable hour, that will be fine. Home Fires has been recommissioned, which I’m pleased about, and I think I will try to watch Humans.

[personal profile] purple_cube asked for my fannish timeline over the past ten years - which fandom I most associate with each year etc.

Picking one fandom for some years was really hard, because it turns out I’ve always been multifannish, which the nature of livejournal encouraged. But here goes!
