I've been claimed! Can't say by who yet, because the match-up reveal isn't until tomorrow. But I went and checked out some of the artwork done by the artist who claimed my fic, and I'm freaking over the moon!

firefly124: vastra and jenny with a backdrop of text saying "badass sword-wielding victorian crime-solving lesbians" (vastra7 by dawn_queen)
Squeee! My gift posted, and it's Vastra/Jenny, and I love it!

Title: Simple Observations
Author: [livejournal.com profile] templemarker
Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: Vastra/Jenny
Rating: PG-13
Why you should go read it right now: If the fact that it's Vastra/Jenny isn't enough, the author has also done an excellent job setting the tone with a narrative voice that puts you into both the Victorian timeperiod and Vastra's head very effectively. And it's sweet and understated in a way that totally fits these badass sword-wielding interspecies lesbians who solve crimes in Victorian London.

There has been lots of good fic posted. The masterlist is here and my Parker/Tara (with a hint of prior Parker/Maggie) Leverage fic is here. Mine never got quite as shippy as I'd hoped to make it, but my recipient seemed to like it, which is a relief.

In other, less squeeful, fannish news, unless I manage to pull a rabbit out of my hat in the next two days, I'm going to have to drop out of Torchwood Big Bang. Work is just sucking the life out of me (which is also why I haven't posted in weeks), and while I desperately want to write the bunny, reaching 10k words by Friday's rough draft deadline is, while not completely impossible, highly unlikely.

Finished Cryoburn the other night. Even knowing a particular character development was destined to be coming up, even seeing all the foreshadowing for exactly what it was, that was quite the gut-punch. No wonder I put off reading it. Cut for a spoiler that really isn't a spoiler, since Bujold had said all along that the next book would contain this particular element. )

Also, an epilogue composed of self-contained, exactly 100 word drabbles? With a definition for the unfamiliar of what a drabble is? Stroke of genius. Admittedly, if someone did that in fandom, as we're so accustomed to drabbles and drabble-series, it might not have gone over quite as well. But it was such a surprise and the format worked so well for what she was doing that I just loved it.

In other news, orientation at work proceeds apace. I definitely prefer working the floor to supervising, despite the fact I'm basically just pushing pills. I apparently have two more weeks of orientation scheduled, plus the iv certification class that hasn't been scheduled yet. But I'm definitely feeling more confident about it all.

The 3rd annual [community profile] wintercompanion Summer/Holiday fest has started with a lovely bit of Jack/Nine hurt/comfort. I'm looking forward to seeing them all. Very cool approach they took with the prompts, too, using the "psychic password" format we encountered in "The Doctor's Wife" of a color, a number, an emotion, and an aroma. Very effective and evocative, and the prompts are open for people to write/draw/create other things throughout the month, which should lead to seeing some intriguing variety on how people run with them.

I think I'm about over my "What the hell was I thinking?" attack re: my [community profile] femslash11 assignment and have moved into research mode, which is a very good thing.

And now, time to run around and do stuff to get ready for this weekend's Anadikia retreat. Coming up with appropriate offerings has been rather challenging. (I got it into my head that I needed special liquor offerings for each of the Temple patrons. Ginger liqueur for Zeus and Oracle of the Sun Shiraz for Apollon were easy enough to find. I'd wanted retsina for Pan, but nobody around here even knows what it is, much less carries it, including the place Tim found it a year or so ago. So I went with Bully Hill wine that has a goat for a logo. *facepalm*)

Have a great weekend all! Don't break the intarwebz while I'm gone!

Hi there!

Thank you for writing for me! I hope I gave you enough to work with. If not, which would probably be why you popped over here, I do have a kink/squick post here, but since you already have pairings to choose from, the most relevant bits are that I'm a huge hurt/comfort fan (especially when the character generally perceived as stronger is the one in the vulnerable position), love twisty plots and new twists on old cliches, and am pretty vanilla when it comes to kink for the most part. Oh, and if you're thinking, "Wow, I can't decide between pairing A from fandom X and pairing B from fandom Y," please feel free to cross them over if you are so inspired.

Most importantly, have fun with it. I'm sure I'm going to enjoy whatever you come up with, but if you're having fun writing it, then I'll probably have even more fun reading it.

Thanks again,

AO3 stuff

If anyone else who participated in the Whipped Cream Day mini-ficathon uses An Archive of Our Own, there is now a collection for those fics, which you can either post to or, if your fic is already up on AO3, I think you can edit to associate with the collection if you want.

Also, since [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking had an AO3 collection, I've uploaded the various things I wrote there.

Whew! That's more than I realized. And at some point, I need to upload the rest, just to have everything in one place. At some point.

Now to tend to various fandom responsibilities I've let slide. Meep!
firefly124: charlie bradbury grooving in a glass elevator (Default)
Is there one? I mean, come on, if ever a "what did they declare this day for" thingy demanded a ficathon, surely it's National Whipped Cream Day. I mean, if we added a ficathon, we could probably very quickly make it International Whipped Cream Day.

So, who's with me? Either find someplace already running one, or have our own in comments here! Any and all fandoms and pairings (or more, or gen), obviously. Someone on Twitter already asked me for Jane/Maura whipped cream fic. Alas, I don't even know a fandom that has both a Jane and a Maura. But surely someone does!

ETA: Apparently that'd be Rizzoli & Isles, the new Cagney & Lacey, which I'm going to have to check out. Meanwhile, attempting to churn out (heh) at least one ficlet to get things rolling before I have to run to work.

ETA2: Mini-masterlist

ETA 3: Links to old fics that involve whipped cream are fair game too!
firefly124: fanfic writing is my therapy (writing therapy by savine_snape)
Forgot to do this yesterday. There's certainly nowhere near as much in years past, partly due to nursing school and partly due to the 271K+ insanity that is The Fic That Wouldn't Stay Dead. But other stuff did get written!

Of course, compiling that reminded me that I missed the deadline to write something Snupiny for December for the Year of Snupin challenge. *sigh* I reminded myself more than once over the past week to do it, too. Damn.

Still trying to write a few more [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking stuffers, as the reveal isn't until the 6th, I think, so rather than keep track of what was 2010 and what was 2011, I'll just count it all as 2011.
firefly124: river song with gun (river bamf by michaela0823)
What a lovely way to spend a lazy New Year's morning: reading River fic. And I'm just over halfway through, so people really got tons written in a single day. (I suspect use of Vortex Manipulators. Very bad for you. Ought to give it up.)

There's River/Doctor (and not just Ten and Eleven), River/Amy, River/Jack, and genfic. Lots of good stuff, whatever your pleasure. If that sounds like fun, pop over to the [livejournal.com profile] spoiler_song One Night of Writing masterlist and start reading!

ETA: Title edited for clarity, because while River Tam is awesome in her own right and totally deserves her own ficathon, this one was for River Song.

Mostly fluff, occasional angst. It's nice to actually be able to do a weekly wrap-up post.

Huge thanks to [profile] hpcon_envy and [profile] dw_femslash for the inspiration to write something other than TFTWSD! Three drabbles may not be much, but they were a welcome break.

Title: No Longer a Student
Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters/Rating: Snape, Hermione, Lupin, G
Summary: Hermione's learned how to handle pointless bickering.

Title: Daftest Wizard Ever
Fandom: Harry Potter (if the title didn't already give that away)
Pairing/Rating: Hermione/Remus, G
Summary: Could he be any more clueless?

Title: Not Just a Joy Ride
Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing/Rating: Amy/River, G
Summary: Stealing ships: it isn't just for fun anymore.

While I was at it, I broke out the charcoal and did a couple of drawbles for [profile] hpcon_envy, too.

Title: Merman
Rating: G

Title: Reading and Knitting
Pairing/Rating: Snape/Hermione, G

TFTWSD, meanwhile, grew by another 3200 words, passing 180k last night, proving once again that despite my best efforts, it refuses to be either killed or contained. *whimpers* Still and all, a very satisfying week.

Fic rec

Oh, how to rec this? The title itself is spoilery, as is the pairing. So, I guess the whole thing has to go under a cut, so only click if you either have seen "The Pandorica Opens" or don't care about being spoiled a bit.

Ooh, and someone else has taken up this pairing too!

Actually, grats first. I am hugely grateful for the creative burst that allowed me to write a novella in about a month. I haven't been on that sort of Muse-ridden adrenaline-rushed ride in, well, about three years. It was awesome, and I need to stop whining about having to spend a few weeks recovering from it to get writing again. Said novella is not in the following wrap-up per se, however, as it's not available for public viewing yet. There will be squeeage and shameless self-promotion galore when it becomes so though. *g*

Also, huge thanks to the mods of the SunnyD Awards, the Kinda Gay Awards, Sycophant Hex, and OWL for the assorted award nominations and shinies below!

And it looks like I never did a June wrap-up, so both shall be lumped together.
