All fic posts are still public, if that's what you're after. If you would still like to be added, please leave a comment introducing yourself.

Thanks!

I say yule, you say tide!

Slightly belated salutations to you, bringer of Yuletide cheer! I'm super excited you're writing for me and I hope this post is helpful to you.

First things first, the number-one factor I look for in a fic is credibility. If you decide to write a genderswapped fic where everyone speaks only in iambic pentameter, that's fabulous! As long as you sell me on it and it doesn't come across like you've shoved a bunch of TVtropes pages into a blender just to see what comes out. One thing I love about Yuletide is how it stretches the creativity of everyone involved and I always enjoy seeing just how wildly different another person's approach to canon can be from my own. Any rating is fine by me, but I'm not a fan of fic being used as either a battering ram for some undesirable character or a soapbox for your thoughts on whatever it is the canon's done wrong. That said, I've honestly never received a Yuletide fic I didn't enjoy and I'm sure whatever you come up with will be made of glory and snickerdoodles.


If you need further details on anything, you can always send me an anon ask on Tumblr, where I'm yviwashere.


Fandom specifics are hereCollapse )

loneliness lives in corners

Made my claim for i_reversebang, finished moving, and decided to celebrate by taking prompts on Tumblr. tourdefierce wanted spooning sex and got a Scott/Isaac/feelings threesome, which is probably grounds for fisticuffs and definitely all because Daniel Sharman looks really pretty in everything from wet t-shirts and hideous cardigans.

Title: loneliness lives in corners
Fandom: Teen Wolf
Rating: M
Pairing: Scott/Isaac
Disclaimer: Don't own 'em, making no profit off 'em, etc. 
Word Count: 5,000
Summary: Somewhere between breakfast and cross country practice on Saturday morning, Scott realizes he can memorize at least a dozen SAT words in a snap just by picturing Isaac’s face instead of trying to recall their exact definitions.

Virgin State of Mind

Title: Virgin State of Mind
Fandom: Teen Wolf
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Stiles/Danny
Disclaimer: Don't own 'em, making no profit off 'em, etc. 
Word Count: 3,400
Summary: Stiles needs to get laid or risk becoming the next virgin sacrifice. Fortunately, Danny is an altruistic kind of guy. Inspired by this scene from Unleashed (ep 4 of season 3).

Counterfeit Heartstrings

Finished this just in time for the new season of Teen Wolf, during which my goal is to write something that involves no references to Derek cooking. Aiming high, y'all.

Title: Counterfeit Heartstrings
Fandom: Inception
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Disclaimer: Don't own 'em, making no profit off 'em, etc. 
Word Count: 14,500
Summary: The situation was a simple one: Eames botched up a job and needed to stay someplace he wasn’t likely to be found until it all blew over. Then Arthur met him at the airport with a frown and a key and the words, “Don’t make me regret this,” and suddenly everything sprouted several more twists and turns than Eames was expecting.

Slap on the Wrist

This was originally posted as an April Fools Day fic while I was buzzed on discount jelly beans.


Title: Slap on the Wrist
Fandom: Teen Wolf
Rating: R
Pairing: Derek Hale/Sheriff Stilinski (the other Sterek, if you will)
Disclaimer: Don't own 'em, making no profit off 'em, etc. 
Word Count: 1,300
Summary: Derek likes to think not much fazes him anymore. First of all, he was raised in a fucking werewolf pack, which tends to set the bar fairly high.

to love others and to be loved

Citizens of Capua! I, the undefeated Gaul, have recently attended a [community profile] festivids-viewing party (between watching Spartacus eps, but that's neither here nor there). For your pleasure, I present my selections of choice.

Therefore, let us cease wallowing in slow-motion carnage and set eyes to purpose. Gratitude.

behold, vids that will impress themselves upon your mind as surely as the mark of a domina upon your backCollapse )

what a palaver

Well, I think Victor Hugo can rest easy now.



I'm currently rereading both the brick itself and the entire Animorphs series, so obviously there should be a crossover.

Yuletide reveal

In 2013, I resolve to find productive ways to fill my time now that I'm done with grad school. This does not entail gluing myself to the internet.

And hey, Yuletide happened! I wrote You Are My Fifth Avenue for seondoks, who wanted Whip It fic about Bliss and Pash. It basically gave me an excuse to fangirl over an awesome movie all over again and to read Derby Girl, the book that inspired it.

I also slipped in a second fic, Prakriti, for [personal profile] holli, who wanted Sara Crewe from A Little Princess and Mary Lennox from The Secret Garden to meet during World War I. This came out a little more somber than I anticipated. WHO'D HAVE THUNK.

Whew, I finally managed to do my Yuletide flailing/reccing post! You can find it on Tumblr or right here:

Gentles all, here you will find a quick and dirty roster of Yuletide fics that made me flail particularly hard. It's by no means exhaustive (uh, there are like three thousand fucking fics, hello) and I'm sure I'll find even more to flail about as I continue reading. I hope everyone's had a merry Yuletide experience!

Here we go. In no particular order:


  • Hold up, I lied, this one is first for a reason. Priceless is the tender tale of two young ladies discovering life and each other, complete with plenty of hot lesbian sex. This was the first Yuletide fic I read and the pairing alone had me grinning like mad. Did I mention it's a crossover between 10 Things I Hate About You and Bring It the fuck On? Because it fucking is. Kat and Missy are roommates, Kat is a baby social justice activist, Missy does martial arts, and it's all so early 2000's it makes me yearn for my Discman.

  • Once upon a time I saw this movie called Cracks where Eva Green plays the uber-chic and slightly unhinged swimming coach at a British all-girls boarding school. There were, like, schoolgirl crushes and intrigue and backstabbing all over the fucking place and everything was so gorgeous I didn't really care how fucked up it all was. The Ruins is a stunningly plausible look at what happens when Di returns to school years after the events in the movie. I'm pleased as punch this exists because Cracks was the fandom at the very top of my things-I-want-for-Yuletide list.

  • Teahouse was another one of the fandoms on my want list. Yeah, the yaoi webcomic about fancy whores. And there are not one, but two fics for it this year! Storm in a Teahouse is a Rhys/Axis fic that finally, finally addresses the weird lack of awareness everyone seems to have about the royal family. It's just the sort of dramatic reveal I can see playing out in canon, and there's also some hot sex. Just putting that out there.
BUT WAIT, THERE"S MORECollapse ) Posted on Dreamwidth with comment count unavailable comments. View post or add a comment.

we really do need to go deeper

Ugh, I'm not sure how to begin explaining this since it's really just navel-gazing at the core, but the short of it is this: I like order, I like making mixes, I've titled some of my Inception fics based on songs, and I wanted to see how those songs might fit together.

As of today, I've got forty-six Inception fics up on the AO3 (the fuuuuuuck), fifteen of which are titled based on songs.

And verily, a mix--with a teaspoon of meta and a walk down memory lane--was born!



WE NEED TO GO DEEPERCollapse )

the tilt of this strange nation

Finished my last grad school class, waiting for the grades to roll in or for the university to laugh in my face and make me do it all over again!

In the meantime, I'm doing a thing where all y'all can pick a number and I'll post an excerpt from the corresponding work in my WIP/stuff-that-I-will-never-actually-finish folder.

Give me a number 1-74 (either in a comment or on Tumblr is fine) and let's get cracking! Feel free to repost and let other people see what you've got in your own WIP folder.

Wheelhouse

Well, this was unexpected. Full disclosure: everything I know about James Bond comes from this movie, Wikipedia, and an ex who was a fan. Also, I'm kind of desperately craving some Séverine/Eve. POSSIBLE PROJECT SIGHTED.

Title: Wheelhouse
Fandom: Skyfall
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Bond/Q
Disclaimer: Don't own 'em, making no profit off 'em, etc. 
Word Count: 6,003
Summary: The one where Bond really, really isn't used to sleeping with people who don't tragically die soon afterward.

Link: Wheelhouse

better wear your best white dress

Oh snap, is it Yuletide o'clock? I DO BELIEVE IT IS!



Brienne of Tarth has nothing to do with any of my requested fandoms, but she rocks my socks and did a stellar job of making this post less empty before I dumped some actual content in it.

And hey, speaking of content!Collapse )

Bring All the Spaces Together

Title: Bring All the Spaces Together
Fandom: Inception
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Disclaimer: Don't own 'em, making no profit off 'em, etc. 
Word Count: 7,348
Summary: “Maybe we should’ve just gotten a parakeet instead,” Eames muses.

Takes place between Atom to Atom, Pattern to Pattern and And Keep This Empire Alive, but can be read on its own. Contains mpreg, cross-dressing, and pregnancy sex.

Notes:: This is a shockingly belated contribution to Rena's Procreation Celebration and a belated addition to the Atom to Atom verse. I never intended to write more than one fic about Eames getting Arthur knocked up, but one turned into two, then it was brought to my attention that I'd managed to skip over the entire pregnancy stage in a verse centered on mpreg, and two turned into three. Oops.

my lady looks perturbed

I'm almost done with grad school. Less than three months to go!

Trying to go a little easy on fandom in the meantime, since I've also moved and am working full time. The only thing I'm signing up for is Yuletide, unless I magically end up with enough free time and enough delusions of capability to decide I can crank out something else on any kind of schedule. That Teen Wolf cosmetology AU ain't gonna appear out of nowhere.

In lieu of actually posting fic, I guess I'll just tap dance or try and fool everyone into thinking I'm actually doing cool things. OH HEY, LOOK! It's this thing from Bina's kink fest that I never actually finished!

(It's the one where Eames forges a centaur. I couldn't go through with actually making Arthur fuck a horse. And some of the places my research took me were pretty weird. The things I do for fandom. If I were a Lannister, I would shove it out a window.)

Um, I also miss everyone and I'm sorry for not being more interesting. I've been more active on Twitter and Tumblr, since they take less energy and the future of this world is one of instant gratification and I am totally, unabashedly part of the problem. Call me maybe.

AND IF ANYONE ELSE THINKS THE CALL ME MAYBE MUSIC VID IS PRIME YULETIDE FANDOM FODDER, I WILL BAKE RAINBOW MUFFINS. AND TAP DANCE. AT THE SAME TIME.

Abbacchio

Well, this was inevitable. TEENS, WOLVES, AND CASSEROLES. NOTHING TO SEE HERE.

Title: Abbacchio
Fandom: Teen Wolf
Rating: PG
Pairing: Scott/Stiles, Stiles/Derek kind of?
Disclaimer: Don't own 'em, making no profit off 'em, etc. 
Word Count: 3,332
Summary: “I have a casserole for you,” says Scott.

Stiles triple-takes. “You what?”

Notes:: Contains spoilers for the season two finale. I don't know why I decided Stiles needed to be smothered in casseroles, but he just does.

A Fake Handshake Don't Make No Man

Things I have done over the past month and a half:

-- interviewed at a zillion different schools
-- taught summer school (today was the last day!)
-- signed up for the last two classes I need in order to get my master's
-- landed a job for fall
-- started looking around for housing closer to said job
-- written stuff

Speaking of written stuff, a wild reversebang appears!

Title: A Fake Handshake Don't Make No Man
Fandom: Inception
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Disclaimer: Don't own 'em, making no profit off 'em, etc. 
Word Count: 26,000
Summary: Spaghetti's straight until you heat it up. Or, how Arthur learned not to use pasta as a pickup line and Eames learned to enjoy long walks on the Kinsey scale.

Notes:: Written for i_reversebang as a companion piece to this lovely artwork by heavenly_rain.

What Takes Hold

Title: What Takes Hold
Fandom: Inception
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Disclaimer: Don't own 'em, making no profit off 'em, etc. 
Word Count: 17,500
Summary: The inception doesn’t take and the consequences are dire. Fischer remembers Eames, Eames remembers nothing, and Arthur remembers everything.

Notes:: Written for i_reversebang as a companion piece to this lovely artwork by yjudaes. Contains death of non-canon characters, references to in-canon character death, and references to trauma.

the love and the lives of man and machine

Better late than never, so here's the rest of my Con.txt weekend.

Con.txt, Day 2

So I got there too late for the Avengers panel, which was just as well because it sounds like it consisted of a ton of squeeing and flailing and I just don't think I could have handled that for an hour. I'll be honest, I saw the film and enjoyed it, but I wouldn't have considered delving into the fandom if the enthusiasm wasn't as contagious and overwhelming as it is.

This probably qualifies as a classic case of Migratory Slash Fandom, but I don't see any issue with going where the enthusiasm is. I've learned a lot about the Avengers I never would have cared to learn about otherwise and it's been pretty enlightening, though I don't see it becoming my one and only fandom love by any means. Comics fandoms unnerve me a little since I've never had any interest in comics, but messing around with movieverse alone seems off somehow, like I'm not a real fan or something (uh, this applies to me only, because I'm awesome at holding double standards like that; I judge no one who writes exclusively movieverse fic, and actually prefer it for reading material since I don't feel like I'm missing tons of convoluted canon backstory)

And now I want modern-day hijinks and Steve taking Thor to Brooks Brothers because he knows that store, damn it and together they make the entire menswear floor swoon.



My dreams are very small. ♥

The first panel I went to was Subtext: Not the Only TextCollapse )

One more to go!
