firefly124: fanfic writing is my therapy (writing therapy by savine_snape)
It took me long enough to get my [livejournal.com profile] hpcon_envy fics done, but done and posted they are. Probably just about in time for the next round for Dragon Con. *rolls eyes @ self* Also, these were meant to be drabbles. Only one came close, and one got completely away from me and threatened to keep going. Oops?

Title: First Steps
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] bambu345
Fandom(s): Vorkosigan
Rating: G
Word Count: 121
Prompt: Perhaps the moment before Cordelia sees Aral after having escaped her own planet? She's left everything for him, but hasn't seen him yet after having made such an enormous, bridge-burning choice.
A/N: Once I revisited this bit of canon, I realized I had to go a tad earlier, as we actually do get Cordelia's interior monologue as she goes from meeting Count Piotr to finding Aral. Hope this suits.

Title: Anything but Routine
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] morethansirius
Fandom(s): In order of appearance: Torchwood, Harry Potter, Doctor Who
Rating: G
Word Count: 1452
Prompt: I would love to see what happens when Doctor Ten, Captain Jack and Unspeakable Snape all arrive to investigate the same crime scene/alien phenomenon/magical occurrence.
A/N: Set just before “Reset” for Torchwood, between the “Voyage of the Damned” & “Partners in Crime” for Doctor Who, and way after Deathly Hallows for the Potterverse.

Title: Everything Hasn't Changed Yet
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] orlando_switch
Fandom(s): Harry Potter, Torchwood
Rating: G
Word Count: 200
Prompt: The post Voldemort era leaves Lucius disillusioned and (according to Jason Isaac) emasculated - and therefore in dire need to regain his self-confidence/masculinity/virility and a new perspective at the world. Unfortunately, everyone in his own world is too busy building up their life to offer him a helping hand. I'd like to see an encounter between him and captain Jack, a man who has seen it all, done it all but never lost his touch to celebrate life.
A/N: Sometime in 1999, well after Deathly Hallows and before Jack assumes control of Torchwood 3.

Stolen from [personal profile] bethbethbeth. The deal is to pull up the stories that you have on AO3 (would work for any archive with hit counts enabled though) to see which are the top 10 in terms of hits. Then, I gather, later you compare to see what shifts. This sounds cool to me, as my overall impression is that there are more people reading (or at least leaving kudos and comments on) the smaller fandoms, like Vorkosigan and Temeraire, but that may not turn out to reflect who's reading, just who's more inclined to give feedback. So, here goes, though I'm going to go from 10-1:

10: The Morning After (HP, SS/HG/LM, Explicit, "Hermione rolled over to her left and found something in her way. Rolling over to her right, she found another obstruction. This woke her up enough to wonder what could be crowding her." 314 hits)

9: How Hermione Got Her Groove Back (HP, SS/HG, Explicit, "Hermione finds herself alone in the Headmistress’ office one afternoon with Snape’s portrait, and things get … interesting." 316 hits)

8: Burnt Offerings (Vorkosigan, Miles & Cordelia, Gen, "On the anniversary of his father’s death, Miles ponders the way they mark it." 317 hits)

7: Wherever I May Roam (DW, Jack/Doctor, Teen, "It was supposed to be a simple stop to pick up supplies at the famed market of Avicephalon." 331 hits)

6: Moulding to the Pitcher (Temeraire, Gong Su, Gen, "The chance to serve a Celestial had seemed a blessing to Gong Su, one normally reserved for those who served the imperial family. And it was, but frequently not in the ways he had imagined." 406 hits)

5. Keeping the Goal in Sight (Vorkosigan, Ekaterin/Miles, Gen, "There must be a reason she needs to learn Comparative Botanical Genetics, right?" 413 hits)

4. Never Chose This Way (Vorkosigan/BtVS, Ivan/Byerly, Teen, "Ivan and Byerly are on their way home from Beta Colony when something goes very wrong. Gigantically wrong, you might say." 442 hits)

3. The Doors We Open and Close Each Day (HP, SS/RL, Teen, "Young Severus Snape was packed off to Hogwarts with instructions to ingratiate himself to the pureblooded Slytherins who would surely be his House-mates. By the time it’s his turn to sit under the Sorting Hat, he has other ideas." 458 hits)

2. A Perfectly Normal Day (HP/Temeraire, CW/HG, Gen, "Just when Charlie thought he'd seen everything, along came Iskierka." 460 hits)

1. An Ordinary Man (Vorkosigan, Ivan/Byerly, Explicit, "Byerly gets Ivan drunk, and one thing leads to another." 557 hits)


Some musings. An Ordinary Man is the first completed fanfic I posted online. So my first thought was, "It has the most hits because it's the oldest, so it had more time to collect them." However, it was not the first uploaded to AO3. That honor goes to #2, A Perfetly Normal Day. It'd be interesting to compare in a few months or a year to see how things shift (or don't).

Stats as of right now:

Fandoms: Vorkosigan 4, HP 3, Temeraire 2, Crossover 2, DW 1, BtVS 1
Ratings: Gen 4, Explicit 3, Teen 3
Ship type: Slash 4, Het 3, None 2, Multi 1 (Misleading, because some have implied or background ships but are basically genfic. Could also read as Slash 4, None 4, Het 1, Multi 1.)

I'm not sure any of those stats reflect the overall percentages of my fic. Even though I think of myself as a slasher, since that's where I started out, I've written far more het, mostly SS/HG, though of late there's been more and more gen or quasi-gen. It is interesting that VK fandom does have the most hits represented, as that was the impression I had going in, even though I've written comparatively little of it.

Meanwhile, I need to try and do a little writing this afternoon before it's time to run off to dinner and a blues concert.
firefly124: hermione/snape - bit of romance (hgss bit of romance)
Title: Progress
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Snape/Hermione
Rating: G
Summary: It can take a long time to heal the aftereffects of a war.
A/N: Written for [personal profile] psyfic who won this with a very generous donation in the lightning round of the [livejournal.com profile] qldfloodauction. I'm so, so sorry it took me this long, and I hope you enjoy it! Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] laiksmarei for beta-reading and [livejournal.com profile] melusin_79 for Brit-picking.

[livejournal.com profile] winkingstar has done podfic of one of the ficlets I did for [livejournal.com profile] haro's [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking. She has a lovely reading voice, and it was a treat for me to hear it read.

The ficlet is Possibilities, which is a G-rated Neville/Luna, and the download link for the podfic can be found here.
firefly124: hermione/snape - bit of romance (hgss bit of romance)
What a pleasant surprise, as I checked my email this morning, to discover that How Hermione Got Her Groove Back is on this weekend's [livejournal.com profile] quiz_sshg.

Thanks to the mods for picking my little portrait!Snape fic to include and for all the work they do running the quiz, but especially for the lovely portrait!Snape banner! *fans self*

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

Off to work now. Keep 'em coming!

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.

firefly124: snape - bewitching your mind (snape bewitch by briarrose_icons)
I received a couple of fic-related pretties.

Song is the Snupin DH fix-it I wrote for [livejournal.com profile] skitty_kat's lovely and inspiring drawing Bribing the Ferryman during the Trading Places Challenge at [livejournal.com profile] lupin_snape. I'm tickled to learn it's a featured story this month.

Thank you, mods at TPP!

But wait, there's more!

I'm also on this week's quiz at [livejournal.com profile] quiz_sshg. This week's theme is crossovers, and the story there is Who Are You?, a Doctor Who crossover written for [livejournal.com profile] aleysiasnape during Zibitcon Envy at [livejournal.com profile] hpcon_envy to the prompt "Severus and Hermione meeting the 10th Doctor and making an entirely understandable—and incorrect—assumption about his identity."

Thank you, mods at [livejournal.com profile] quiz_sshg! Now, the rest of you, go play, and see if you can figure out which passage (if any) come from "Who Are You?" and the other featured stories!

There's actually a third fic-related thing this week, but no graphic to go with: as of Monday, I've completed a full year of consistently meeting the [livejournal.com profile] 5_for_five writing challenge of writing at least 500 words at least five times a week.

Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] lady_rhian for coming up with the idea and [livejournal.com profile] sshg316 for creating the [livejournal.com profile] 5_for_five comm as a motivator to Just Keep Writing!

That'd also make this post today's grats for the Gratitude Project, though I've got quite a lot of catching up to do with that. Oops.

Title: Don't Think You Knew You Were in This Song
Author: [personal profile] azn_jack_fiend
Fandoms/Spoilers: Doctor Who until S5. All of Torchwood including Children of Earth.
Characters/Pairings: Mickey/Martha, Jack, the Jones family
Rating: PG-13 for language, some sexual suggestiveness
Summary: Mickey and Jack meet again after the events of Children of Earth. Mickey considers how his life has changed since their first meeting, how far he's travelled since then, and wonders what he'll say to Jack. In between, he remembers a long, strange dinner party with the Jones family.
Why you should read it: I'd never really given much thought to the parallels between Mickey's and Jack's lives, nor to the fact that Mickey is the last human on Earth who knew Jack when he was mortal, if only briefly. [personal profile] azn_jack_fiend gave this some thought and not only came up with a fic that shows great insight into both characters, it makes some sense out of the canon gap of "Martha's engaged to Tom but now she's married to Mickey."

Title: Sun-Kissed
Author: [personal profile] remuslives23
Fandom/Spoilers: Torchwood through Exit Wounds
Rating: G
Summary: 'There have been far too few smiles recently. Far too few moments like this where the rift is quiet, and Gwen is with Rhys, and they manage to emerge from under the ground to enjoy the very things they are working so damn hard to save.'
Why you should read it: The imagery and language in this convey layers of insight into both Jack and Ianto as well as touching on more universal themes of finding hope and moving forward.

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.
firefly124: jack_doctors_rose_icon by locker_monster (jack_doctors_rose_icon by locker_monster)
Title: Greater Love
Author: [personal profile] sahiya
Fandoms: Doctor Who (spoilers for "The Beast Below")
Characters/Rating: Liz X/Jack Harkness, PG
Summary: Liz could not remember a time without the Captain.
Why you should read it: Because it's Liz X/Jack! Which will make no sense at all if you've not seen the ep. (I considered using an LJ-cut on the pairing and summary, then figured that while, ok, a bit spoilery, but not really as it won't make any sense.) Also, it makes perfect sense through a couple of layers of characterization. And now I want more of this pairing, as I imagine you will as well. So, if you go read and enjoy, please join me in egging [personal profile] sahiya on leave feedback.

It seems the last couple of fic recs I've done have used this icon, though they don't quite fit. Clearly, I need to seek out another Jack icon.

I've alpha and beta read a bit outside my usual realm this summer, which has been both a challenge and a blast.

Title: The Memory Remains
Author: [profile] deemichelle
Fandom: Twilight (AU)
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Edward/Bella
Prompt/Summary: Edward is a soldier heading overseas in WWI. He meets Bella just days before he ships out, they promise to wait for each other. What happens when he comes back home a changed man to find her changed as well?
Why you should read it: It captures the flavor of the altered time setting in a number of ways that I found very enjoyable. And I imagine that for Twilight fen, it's probably all the cooler seeing how the changes in this AU affect things and how some things manage to stay the same.

Title: Touched by Dragons
Author: [profile] angela_snape
Fandom: Harry Potter
Rating: R
Pairing: Charlie/Draco
Summary: A bad reaction to a burn treatment leads to a different sort of reaction to a burn specialist.
Why you should read it: A lovely bit of angsty not-quite-h/c with a very unusual pairing that does some intriguing things with Draco's character, in particular.

Title: Drugged
Author: [personal profile] sahiya
Fandom: Doctor Who
Rating: PG
Pairing: Nine/Rose/Jack
Summary: Goddamn xenophobic aliens and goddamn drugs and goddamn hypodermic needles.
Why you should read it: A thoroughly enjoyable h/c fic that slots nicely into canon and pokes about at some interesting aspects of Jack's character.

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.

Back at the end of May, there was this drawble meme going around, and I jumped on. Took me forever to make an attempt at this request from [personal profile] emelye_miller for Snape/Willow, which ended up more Snape and Willow, but I did finally do it at work last night. This morning. Whatever.

Snape and Willow )

I also did some drawbles for [profile] hpcon_envy: Snape-Winky shouting match, Malfoys post-final battle, and Angelina & Oliver. Oddly, considering it's by far the most stylized of the lot, I like the Malfoy one best. Definitely need to work on getting better control over the charcoal though. And noses and mouths are going to be the freaking death of me, but then, part of the point is to get the practice.

Time to hit the hay. Have a lovely Saturday!

Title: Time Management

Character(s)/Pairing: Severus Snape/Bathsheba Babbling
