shallowness: Sky High's Warren Peace smiling (Warren Peace smiles!)
I posted a ficlet yesterday: I Like The Way You Move, MCU, Thor/Jane you suck at dancing but you’re doing it in the middle of a bookstore to the crappy music on the radio and I think it’s pretty damn cute au.

I started drafting a fill (the prompt is the summary) last autumn when I saw it, and it sat there for months. I really went at it this month and came up with a title and a way of ending it. This was done entirely on the laptop. I’m not happy about the probable lack of Thor/Jane in Thor: Ragnarok, hence the fluff - inasmuch as I need an excuse to write fluff. Some feelings about bookshops may have crept in also.

Marvel thing no. 2 is Spider-Man Homecoming. Look, I wasn’t excited about this film; I was planning on going and seeing it, yes, but not in any desperate hurry to do so, because I was around for the two previous cinematic iterations, and while I intellectually get why Marvel were so excited to get their biggest superhero into the MCU (which the title encompasses. although it’s not an aggressively meta film by a comic book superhero movie in 2017 standards), I am getting older and more grumpily distant from Peter Parker and the preteen boys who probably love Spidey the most.

But, this weekend, the other option was Dunkirk, which I do want to see, but it’s an intense war movie. So I chose the lighter fare, aware that this has had decent reviews. And as it also has MCU developments and I wanted to give it a thumbs up, here’s my review.

shallowness: HP films' Minerva reads the Daily Prophet (Minerva reads)
At the start of the week, it was twenty years since ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ was first published. After an initial ‘eek’ at that, even though I was fine with realising OK Computer is twenty years old also, it’s been interesting to read about how people have grown up with the series, and with it being such a phenomenon it doesn’t feel overblown to say that or to think about it’s influence in shaping social attitudes. There was the issue of the series getting a generation to read. There are people who read the series for whom it wasn’t a gateway drug to other books, for example, although I hope it got more people into reading more widely than would otherwise have happened, and it’s certainly a factor in the explosion of geek culture and the rise of the fantastic.

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... )

Yesterday, I posted:

Finding Harry Potter. Teen. Hannah/Neville (and various other pairings.) Summary: Hannah has to find Neville.

It was inspired by a [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic prompt that has subsequently been deleted. I don’t know what the etiquette for that is, quite. Read more... )

Isn’t it great about Tatyana Maslany winning an Emmy? I couldn’t keep up with the Orphan Black and didn’t love it enough to buy the DVD, but her performances as the clones were thoroughly impressive.

Poldark 2.3

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.
shallowness: Margaret Hale of North and South adaptation sitting at desk writing (Margaret North and South writing)
Title: Epicinium
Fandom: Smallville
Rating: Teen
Characters/Pairing: Lois, Chloe, Clark, Gabe, Lana.
Summary: The aftermath of the eighteenth birthday party that Lois and Chloe don’t remember.

Disclaimer: I don’t own these characters and don’t profit from this fanfiction.
Author's Note: 2,682 words. Coda for 4.8 ‘Spell’. Potentially triggering references to non-consensual sex/lack of consent issues. ‘Epicinium’ is Latin for aftermath or afterwards. Written because Chloe didn’t get to enjoy her birthday party, all Lois’s work was for naught and I wanted to recognise that. I hadn’t seen beyond this episode when I started writing this fic. This fic hasn’t been beta read, so constructive criticism is welcome.

Epicinium: shallowness )

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.)

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.

Juliette Barnes, Cadence Barkley, Avery Barkley, (background Juliette/Avery).

I’ve only seen up to season 3. 237 words. Written for the prompt ‘author’s choice, author’s choice, writing a song for your child’ at [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic.

shallowness: Margaret Hale of North and South adaptation sitting at desk writing (Margaret North and South writing)
I posted three ficlets on Sunday:

Paterfamilias, Scorpion, U, Cabe Gallo & ensemble.
Summary: Cabe Gallo has three sons, two daughters and one grandson who he isn’t related to and never officially adopted.

It’s All About the Chemistry, Sky High, PG, Warren Peace, Layla Williams, Boomer, Medulla (Layla/Warren, canonical relationships)
Summary: Layla Williams doesn’t attend her school reunion with Will or Larry.

A Long Time Coming, Marvel Cinematic Universe RPF, U, OCs and A-listers.
Summary: Welcome to the red carpet for the premiere of the long-awaited Black Widow movie!

Apart from all being fills for comment-fic prompts, they’re all future fics. Two are new departures fandom-wise – this is the first time I’ve written RPF! Obviously, I expect every word I wrote about a Black Widow movie to come true! This is also the first Scorpion fic I’ve written. I drafted it back in the spring when I first saw the prompt, but was hesitant to post even this ficlet because I haven’t seen the first season and a half. Returning to it last week, I decided I could live with that.

I also drafted a fill for the ‘any high school couple, are they still together at the 10-year high school reunion fic?’ prompt back in the spring, which obviously had to be about Sky High, and left it unfinished, wondering if perhaps I could expand it, but after some polishing decided to post it as was.

I saw the ‘red carpet’ prompt on Saturday, so it's not just a case of polishing and posting old drafts.

There is some Pacific Rim 2 casting news. here.

Feelings. Spoilers. )

I am cheered, though, by today's news about Channing Tatum potentially playing a spoiler ).
