So, I finally succumbed. :)

Putting this up here so it's easier to see.... If you want a .pdf of any fic, please don't hesitate to ask!

I am also slowly putting up fic at my AO3 account.

List particulars.Collapse )

ETA: Now with summaries! Gods help us. Don't let them put you off!


SupernaturalCollapse )



Buffy/Angel/FireflyCollapse )



Marvel VerseCollapse )

Aaaaaand......that's all for now. Dear gods. That took forever. Buffy stuff will be added in the next week or so, use the tags 'til then. :)

ETA: That's everything under the 'buffy'verse' tag. I still have stuff under 'spander' and possibly 'spangel' that i didn't tag with the buffy tag - bad! I'll be fixing that and adding those things soon. ETA2 If by 'soon' I mean - years and years later. Yeesh. Those fics are *still* not on this list, but are in tags. Someday.....

Whooooooooo! I swear i'm not dragging this out on purpose. Thank you again, darkhavens for your always-excellent beta. I made a small edit in the previous chapter to fix a continuity error.

And so - here we go!
Also on AO3.


Shake hands, here"s luck, good-bye.Collapse )

Hullo!

Just a little update on things. And a meme. Haven't done one of *those* in a long time. But roxymissrose and trishsabooms challenged me, among others.

Ze Challange Grande is to pull seven lines from the seventh page of your WIP. Then tag seven writers. I won't be tagging people 'cause my brain is just...too toasty today, heh. But feel free to do it, anyway!

Here's what I replied with at the respective LJ's.....

Some Supernatural purgatory/apocalypse thingy....Collapse )

And some Teen Wolf. I know!!Collapse )

So, yes - WIP I hope to finish soon. I'm also madly typing away on the Space AU, and hope to get it done and beta'd tonight/tomorrow, depending on how fast i can type and how available my beta is. :)

Lastly - tv. WHY is no one talking about Sense8Collapse )

C'mon, flist! Watch it!!

And now I must to work. Enjoy your day, flisties!!
*luffs you all*

And here we go! A second part (not linear chapters) to my first Marvel/Avengers/Winter Soldier fic, This Solitude Through Which We Go.

It's the little things, really, that seem to cause the biggest problems in Bucky's recovery....
Also at AO3.

Thanks again, darkhavens for the beta!

Sooooo - way back last year - last *June* - there was a fandom works auction to benefit a dear person here in fandom who needed help. And I offered up fic, and people bid, and people won!

And I didn't get fic out in a timely manner. Because I suck like that. But i have been *working* on them (among other fic), and am finally *done* with the first one! Whoooo!

So this fic is for without_me, who bid on a J2/Wincest fic. And this is what happened with the prompt! I do hope it measures up. :)

Thank you, darkhavens for your usual awesome beta, and sweptawaybayou for your usual awesome cheering-on.
*luffs you guys*

Keeping CompanyCollapse )


I hope the translation is good - the site wouldn't do a reverse translation for me to check, and neither would any other site i tried - it just kept putting the same words in Hindi in the 'translate to English' box. Arrgh.

Plus, also - I don't live in New York and have never visited there.

Finally! Sincerest apologies, my dear readers. I kinda suck at this sometimes. Mostly, the delay has been me being a dork and not actually *concentrating* on writing like I need to be. A very miniscule part has been my poor beta, darkhavens having computer woes to end all computer woes.

But now we have more! And we're getting closer to the end! And and and....

I am so very grateful for all the readers out there who are sticking with it, and again - apologies for my dragging ass.

(OMG so nice outside, *so* nice outside, warm and breezy and a little thundery and everything is green and flowers and clover and redbud and birds all tweeting merrily and whoooo! :) )

Thanks again, everyone. :)

Finally, the reference on Show I've been waiting for!!
*does a little dance*

Whoooo!




I have not seen *one* fandom take on this, it's just...crazy. And sad. Bullwinkle was a favorite cartoon when we were kids!

Oh, Show - how i love you.

And, as I'm currently watching, anybody wanna say anything spoiler-y for tonight's ep, feel free.

Hullo, flisty people! Wow, it's spring. Yay!! We've had rain, and yo-yo weather (70's down to 20's up to 60's, all in one day!) and there's a bird's next built in the decorative lantern i have on the front porch.

Little spring peepers (frogs) chorus half the night, and the birds are going nuts in the trees, singing singing singing. I look forward to the first laying of the wren eggs in our wren house. They have nested and laid two sets every year since we moved here. It's awesome.

Warmer is awesome, since i'm actually motivated to move away from my space heater and do stuff, heh.

Anyway - writing goes. I'll have another bit of Space AU up some time tomorrow, and i've written more of the Avengers thing i posted a bit ago.... Rejuvenation! Let's hope my writing has a spring, too. :)

Anyway - next bit of the Obsession drabbles. I posted it over in the comm a couple days ago. The prompt was 'Bondage', and this isn't, um...traditional bondage, but more the hold Jason has over everyone, by his insane and dangerous actions. The rest, of course, are in tags.

Thanks and enjoy!

Today is a very special day!
Today is darkhavens birthday! Many happy returns of the day, bb!
*smishes*

We have known each other for - wow - so many years. Bonding first over Buffy, then over Show. She has more fandoms under her belt and on her external hard drives than anybody I know, and she's introduced me to more stuff I never even considered.....

But then, I've got her to read a few things she never thought she'd like, too. :)

She's also an epic beta of awesome epicness, and none of my fics would be as polished and *finished* without her expert advice.

So I hope you have an awesome day, bb, and thank you for being such an amazing person and friend!

So! I did actually post more of that 'Obsession' Christian Kane/Jason Behr story, but I didn't post it here. So now i'll post both the 'old' bit and the new stuff.

Also - i have been reading so many *amazing* Steve/Bucky post Winter Soldier fics...DAMN. Makes me want to write *so much more* in that 'verse. I'm working on a second bit to my first one, so.... Soon, i hope? And working on Space AU, and yes, *still* on the charity auction fics, though those winners probably hate me by now.....
Sheesh.

My work has been horribly boring and tedious and the hours are stupid and i'm trying to find something else. Too bad i'm not an accountant, because they seem to be needed a lot. But wow, could not do that job.

Anyway - here's the bits of the 'Obsession' 'verse that are new. Of course, they're all over at slashthedrabble, as well as new drabbles in many fandoms ever week, so go check out the comm! :)

These two are for the prompts 'Alcohol' and 'Illegal'

Takes place immediately after Murder By Numbers.

Hope everybody is well and keeping warm! We had ice and then snow and then melt and then more ice and snow. Ridiculous!

Hallo!

Well, i am, as my dad would say, 'feeling puny'. So no work for me today (or yesterday), and i thought i'd get my updates all...updated.

I posted another ficlet at slashthedrabble, a continuation of the same story. It's over at the comm for now - I'll be putting it on my lj soon enough. It's nice to see drabbles and ficlets going up over there!

Also the Space AU! Which, you guys. I feel like such a dork, dragging it out so long, but it's not deliberate! It's just...me. I'm glad my faithful readers are still hanging on, though I totally understand if people want to wait until it's complete to read, too.

I think a couple more chapters will see us through to the end, so not long now, I promise!
Some 'not English' spoken in this chapter, so that's this:
'Tudo bem? - Everything well?
'Tudo bom. - Everything good.
'Chuchu' - Sweetie
'Legal' - Cool

We'll call this 'Obsession 'verse' because, really - that's what it is. I started writing the next bit off the newest prompt (The Police song titles) and got a little...carried away.

So almost 1500 words later, I'm done, but - ha! - not exactly a drabble *or* even a ficlet. So on the advice of the ever-smrt darkhavens, I posted a 200 word snippet at slashthedrabble, and I'm posting the whole piece *here*.

So. :)

I am so pleased that that comm is back up! I love that i'm writing more. I really really really need to *write more*. On all kinds of things. (Yes, you people who won fic off me, i'm still working on them, you are not abandoned, i just really suck right now!!)

Thanks again, darkhavens for the beta. AND, for finding the only word-count app on the entire Interwebs that counts correctly! G-docs and a host of others count html and all kinds of things, and we could *not* get an accurate word count. (And counting by hand, finally, showed us I was short when online counts showed us I was *over*.) CharacterCountOnline rocks.

Hullo! Finally posting 'right' - finally have my computer up and running again, new hard drive in place, OS reinstalled, things getting back to normal. It'll take a few more days to dl and install all the little things that i'm missing - Photosheep, Filezilla, VLC.... And of course, all the little tweaks and settings and whatnot that made it all run and look *just like i like*.

And I need to find a decent Torrent client, since BitLord puts a completely un-removable toolbar fucking *thing* in theirs. Jackasses.

ANYway..... slashthedrabble is in it's first week back from a long hibernation, and I'm...writing stuff. Wheeee!

So I thought i'd just post them all here, so they were all together on my journal, as well as over at the comm. Warning for...i guess...creepy-stalkery stuff.


Here be ficlets....Collapse )


(Except, of course, this *didn't* xpost because i had to change my lj password 'cause I couldn't remember it and forgot to reset it at DW. I'm so cool.)

But this is truly the easiest way to actually communicate, since the browser on the tablet does weird stuff a lot of the time, especially when opening multiple tabs.

ANYway....

I'm pimping and old friend in the new year slashthedrabble!! darkhavens has graciously added sweptawaybayou as a new co-moderator, and tonight (Wednesday 28 Jan), a new prompt will at long last be posted!!

I, myself, posted a double-drabble (ficlet?) there last night on the last prompt, Obsession. And i'll be adding the opposite POV to that post before midnight tonight, just 'cause.

So please take a look, read the new prompt, and if you get inspired - give us a drabble! The hiatus us over! (And for those of you who don't know, or don't remember, slashthedrabble is a multi-fandom comm open to any and all 'ships.) Simple rules, lots of room for your imagination.

Enjoy! And boost the signal, if you like - the more (fandoms and drabbles and friends), the merrier!

Hello! Thanks, everyone, for the commiserations. Seems the hd is toast, so I'm waiting on a new one. Lucky for me, my computer is a few years old, so a new hard drive won't break the bank. The old one is off to dear friend Henry, who can hopefully salvage my most important things (bookmarks, omg, please, please.....)

I will hopefully be back in PC mode by the end of the week (clutches tower to bosom). Damn, dunno how people use these tablets on the regular, this is *awkward* and horrible and just.... Yeah. I mean - YES, super-grateful Cat has it so that I can borrow it and all, but *wow*.

Not my thing, at all. But! All will be well soon. :) I probably won't get a chance to watch Show tonight, but that's a small price to pay.


Also - signal boost! A fandom friend is in dire straits, and the combined power for fandom - whether through donations, suggestions, contacts, or just down-and-dirty, hands-on *help* - is something I know we can all count on and be proud of. Pleas hop over to milly_gal's LJ to read the post and help out a fellow fangrrrl in need!

Help for Phoenix-Dragon.

Thanks, guys! Even a signal boost is good.

TTFN, TTYL, and ILU! :)

Hiya, flisties.

My hardrive took a header into whitewater (figuratively speaking), and now won't boot up. I'm waiting on a disc from Dell (fuck those condescending assholes) and hopefully can get it to boot up and at least let me grab some things i should have had on my external drive.

If i've lost all my bookmarks, I shall go into mourning.

*crosses every single thing that can be crossed*

Though this probably explains why my browsers were so fucked up lately - hinkey hd!! So - i'm on a tablet borrowed from Cat for the duration, which is okay for email and looking at my flist but incredibly awkward for replying and other things. So, sadly, I won't be around too much.

See ya on the flipside, flities!

Oh, and, no xposting to Dreamwidth 'cause I can't remember my stupid password there and don't want to change it. Like i already had to change my LJ password. ARRGH.

Heya. Well, so - it's nearly February, wow! Can't believe it. It's been cold-warm-cold-cold-*cold*holyfuck-warm here, so very weird. Heating bill is way too big, as usual. *sigh*

BUT, all that aside, i bring fic! Avengers fic. I know! Who'da thunk! But i love the movies (all of them except the Hulk ones - Bill Bixby is forever my Bruce Banner), and i've had this idea kicking around for ages, so... Fic. :)

I thought - getting your arm busted up and then amputated, possibly without anesthesia, is pretty fucking traumatizing. And then Evil Nazi Scientists (tm) graft some kind of horrible, metal killing-arm onto you? Without your consent? And torture you?

I can't imagine Bucky *liking* having that arm on him, so...i wrote about it. It's Gen, it's not terribly gory or anything, and I posted it over at AO3, too.


What is this world, O soldiers?Collapse )



Also, in case you're wondering - SHOW IS BACK! AND I LUFF!! Oh, my boys. Oh, my *boys*! *smishes them*

Yes, at last! I am so pokey, it's horrible. But, this fic *will* be finished, and sooner rather than later.

In other news - it's cold, it's sleet-drizzling, my job is tedious, our Xmas tree is awesome. :) We got a nice, big, fat cedar this year, which really - yay! I love a good cedar tree. I'll post a picture soon - before the actual day. 'Cause i know you're all dying to see, heh.

Anyway - here we go. darkhavens beta'd for me, of course.

SHOW  
I know, i know. But i'm still damn *giddy* about Show, and episode 200, and i don't care who knows it. :)

I think the *most* fun thing, outside of the episode itself, is seeing all the 'outside' reactions to the show/the episode, and getting to hear remarks from show runners, writers, producers, and the actors themselves.

So, here are a few links that just made my day.

Supernatural: the Cast and Creators Looks Back.... - some great quotes from Kripke, et al, about the episode and why they think it's lasted so long.

Supernatural at 200: The Road So Far, an Oral History. At 'Variety', no less, and just awesome.

And last but not least, the 'review' and ramble that made me laugh, and made me cry....Now That's How You Do a 200th Episode!. From the lovely people at Fangasm. From whom I now have to buy *all the books*. All the books, people. :)

So - i've said it before about Show, and I'll say it again - I have never not liked a season, and i'm hard put to say i *hate* any episode. There's always some redeeming moment or bit of canon or mythology. I'm unabashed and unashamed in my love for Show, and haters? Need not apply.

*wanders off humming 'Road So Far'....*

*has so many, many, many feels*

Boys - you done us proud. Kudos to the entire cast and crew and production/show runner/writer unit of Show for an amazing and wonderful episode that just kept surprising me, making me laugh and, in the end, making me cry.

A couple little spoilers here.....Collapse )

Suffice it to say, my fucking Show rocks, this episode was incredible, and I am even more in love than I was two hours ago. YAYAYAYAY!
