Update, June 2013: Dudes, I am super lazy about updating this, and AO3 is way more navigable than this mess of a list. If you want to find fic on my journal, the tagging system should have your back (or leave a comment and I will help you find the fic!).

Since fanfiction and fanart are basically the only things I post, here's a list. I realize you could just go through my tags, but I hate doing that on other people's journals, so why should I make anyone else?

List, list, list. )

I have finished posting my Hawkeye epic, so I am posting here to let people know! Very exciting. I realize some people do not think of 35k as an epic, but this is 101 fricking pages of Clint Barton being ridic so I think I can call it an epic if I want.

Life of Crime
Marvel (Comics)/Hawkeye
Rating: adult
(Content notes in each chapter heading. Contains explicit sex and canon-typical violence/character injury.)
Characters: Clint/Natasha, eventual Clint/Carol Danvers and Clint/Bucky/Natasha, Kate Bishop/America Chavez, Barney Barton, lots of other people.
Wordcount (total): 35,000ish
Summary: As a supervillain supercriminal contract worker with a morality deficit, Clint Barton leads a glamorous life. You know, stolen cars, dangerous women, a really confusing relationship with a meddling do-gooder, the works. It's pretty awesome. Except for, uh, medical bills, the mob, and being on the run all the time. That part isn't all that awesome.
(A supervillain AU where Clint shoots arrows at people and gets beat up a lot. So, not really that much of an AU.)

Read it on the AO3!

Here is that giant fic I've been working on! It's the longest thing I think I've ever finished (just barely beating out that historical Two Whofic). Clint-centric Marvel Comics fic, sub-titled "I realized that I am an adult and no one can stop me." It's getting posted in chapters over the next few weeks at the AO3, so I am going to give you this first notice and then another one when it is done, so that I don't have to post 8 chapters of fic in multiple places.

ETA: I forgot, but this is part of the idfic summer bingo! This fic fulfills M/F/M threesome and clothes porn (eventually).

remix things!

Reveals are up! So now I know that the extremely excellent Lost in the Fire was written by honeynoir, and I can post the header etc for my remix:

Constellations (The Thirteenth Take Remix)
Welcome to Night Vale
Rating: pg
(kissing, swearing. Let me know if you need details.)
Characters: Cecil/Carlos.
Wordcount: 2,900ish
Summary: The night sky is dark, an empty void except for the pinpricks of dancing starlight. “Are stars supposed to dance?” asks Carlos. “I thought that was a, uh, metaphor.”
A/N: A remix of sabinelagrande's You're My Moon. Betaed by the excellent einzwitterion! The fic is a mixed audio/written work, but can be read without audio or listened to as a complete podfic.

Read it on the AO3.

I haven't gotten a chance to dig through the rest of remix because LIFE, but I'm looking forward to it. If you want to rec remixes or pimp your own remix, this would be a good place to do it at me? I really would appreciate pointers at what to look at, as I'm currently in a pit of baseball RPF (don't look at me like that, I know), and it may take me a while to look at the remix entries on my own.
neveralarch: (Default)
1) Podfic.
susan_voight recorded a podfic of Team the Best Team (my Elementary OT3 fic)! It is here and it is excellent. I should have mentioned it foreeeeveer ago, but my memory is full of potholes. Definitely check this one out, I love susan_voight's delivery.

2) Remix.
It is remix time again! Someone remixed me! I'm so excited. Lost in the Fire is a remix of Continuing Care, which is a Who fic that I had completely forgotten existed. The remix is sort of a graceful and painful meditation on the Doctor's relationship/guilt complex/duality with the Master, and so I obviously I am super into it and I suspect a lot of my f-list will be too? Check it out, I'm already dying to know who wrote it.

3) Rec.
So I am going to a Red Sox game this week, and in preparation I watched Money Ball, because everyone keeps telling me to watch it. This is what happens when you hang out with statistics geeks. The movie was reasonably fun, but it left me with one of those yanking-in-my-chest character obsessions with Billy Beane. Idk, man, these things happen. I went off in search of fic, mostly without hope, but the internet came through for me. Oh, the internet came through. Front Offices is Theo Epstein/Billy Beane Baseball RPF. It's gorgeous, and heart-breaking, and I am going to read it at least fifteen more times this month. The writing is really excellent, the character arcs are believable and thoughtful, and man, this thing is funny. I promise you don't have to know anything about baseball to read it. Do you care about middle-aged dudes being assholes to each other and then making out and then having feelings and then making fun of each other? You will love this fic, I think.

I was chatting with a friend about baseball today, and impressed him with all of my sudden knowledge about the A's and the Red Sox's games in the early 2000s. Also knowing that the Dodgers used to play in Brooklyn, and being able to discuss Tim Lincecum's hair. I still have no idea how baseball is actually played.

victory!

I have a finished draft of my remix fic and two weeks left to the deadline! Lots to do, still, but I am proud of myself for a) remembering how to remix, that's always hard, and b) getting an idea really quickly that only took me two days to write. Since my last remix fic ran over 12k and the last fic I wrote ran over 30k, I am definitely counting a little fic with one contained idea as a victory.

Speaking of fanfic, the Marvel comics thing I mentioned before is SUPER LONG and finished and with a beta, so hopefully something will come of it? Every once in a while (especially while in grad school and trying to figure out my life), I think that maybe I am done with fic and that this interesting period of my life is winding down. And then I get blindsided by an idea and write 17,000 words in a week. Hahaha I am so behind with my rl work.

I want to write Bucky fic next. I have so many thoughts about Cap2 and Agents of SHIELD and either it is going to spill over into fic or poorly thought-out meta, and I think we all know which would be preferable.

so

I've finished the first draft of my new epic Marvel Comics AU. It's Clint/Carol Danvers, Clint/Natasha, and Clint/Natasha/Bucky. It's currently 23,000 words. There are pretty much an equal ratio of action scenes/sex scenes/Clint being injured and lying around his apartment scenes. It needs a lot of work. It's tentatively titled "I realized that I am an adult and no one can stop me."

Anyway, does anyone want to help me with this monstrosity? I realize I've made it sound super attractive, haha. It really is a silly indulgent mess, but I think it'll be fun when it's finished. No canon knowledge required, since I don't think even an extreme Marvel fan would get my dumb Nextwave jokes.

I've been super quiet on the internet lately! It is because everything is ridic busy. My last substantive post was in, wow, mid-February.

Here is a short summary of what I've been up to since then, I guess?

- High School state champs in fencing went really really well. I'm super proud of my fencers and reasonably confident that I'll be asked to coach next year. It was a great experience.

- Midwest club champs happened, and I did okay the individual day and then my 2-person team didn't manage to advance on the team day. It was super close, agh. I won all three of my bouts, and my teammate won one and then lost one by a point. The invisible ghost person didn't win any bouts. There were some fun times and also some drama with my least favorite teammates, so all in all it was a pretty normal competition, haha.

- My friend who also coaches a high school team introduced his team to the wonders of BY THE SWORD. Oh my god. They loved it. Also apparently some of the girls jumped right on the Maestro/Suba train. There was legit gasping during the scene where they're fencing with their hands and Suba slaps the Maestro and the Maestro touches his face and chuckles. Which is right. That is a moment of glory. Also during the Maestro's topless sword exercises, one of the high schoolers kept saying 'there should be more light in this scene. I can't see his muscles.' These kids truly understand the wonders of BtS.

- I guest lectured at a Public Opinion class for a friend who had to go to a wedding. It was actually super fun! I always think I'm not interested in teaching as a career, but I enjoy the process of it a lot.

- I turned in the final paper for one of my classes, because it was only for half the semester. Supposedly I will now have more free time, except I ditched a lot of important things in order to keep up with coaching and my course load and research. I will still not have free time.

- Last week was spring break! I flew down to Texas and hung out with my parents and did almost none of the work I brought with me. Instead I cleaned sheet pans and went to a chiropractor twice and wrote 17,000 words of Hawkguy AU. I don't know. I'd really like to finish that while I'm still rolling and motivated, but I'm suspicious that it's going to turn out to be 25k+.

- I saw The Grand Budapest Hotel in Texas with my mom, and it was super amazing. I don't have anything coherent to say about it, except that Tilda Swinton was fabulous and totally unrecognizable.

- I got up at 4.30 this morning, got on a plane in Dallas, flew back to the Cities, and landed in the snow. Majorly unhappy about the temperature change (it was briefly 75 in Texas! it is 20-30 here!), but I will cope. Accomplished practically nothing today, except hanging out with my cat, some repairs on my fencing jacket, and mainlining the first four episodes of Agents of SHIELD. It's okay, it kind of feels like it's starting slow (which people warned me about).

- Can we talk about how good Elementary has been lately? I feel like the bits with the roosters were straight out of the best kind of fanfiction.

I think that's it? In the next two weeks I'm going to a lot of academic talks, supposedly writing a draft of another term paper, doing a fun team competition in Iowa, going to a Bastille concert, going to a Caravan Palace concert, and probably collapsing into a puddle of exhaustion. And I'm thinking I should sign up for Remix and aralias' romance novels thing. And getting somewhere with this Hawkguy AU. Woo!

I have finished a thing! Finally. I started writing this in July. This fulfills the predicament bondage and inexperienced dom squares on my idfic bingo!

Slip
Elementary
Rating: teen
(swearing, BDSM (emphasis on bondage/rope kink, but also d/s). Let me know if you need details.)
Characters: Gregson/Holmes, Bell, Watson.
Wordcount: 4,700ish
Summary: "You're not doing the knot right," says Holmes. Gregson closes his eyes and prays for strength.
A/N: Just so you know, this is firmly in the AU of 'everyone likes each other and nothing stands in the way of my guilty-pleasure ship.' Sometimes you just feel a need to write this stuff.

Yesterday I had a fun exam where I sat at a computer and typed for almost 8 hours! It was a closed-book exam on math and methodology and I have never written as much in one sitting. I have serious trouble writing more than 2 pages on any subject at a time, so I had to keep switching between the three required essays and finally ended up with exactly 30 pages. I didn't have time to reread them other than basic formatting +spell-checking, so I hope all those pages actually make sense.

My goal is now to forget all the citations that I memorized. Also to hopefully have passed. Also to do all the life and fandom things I've been putting off because of this exam. Like actually celebrate my birthday! Tonight I'm going to A Tribe Called Red, so hopefully there will be a concert update soon. I am going to stage a return to the internet.

ETA: ALSO, I was podficced in the middle of all this stuff! Tudor Spies and Perfidy was podficced by majoline here, and it's a great recording. I am thrilled that someone decided to record my ridic Yuletide academia crack, and maybe you would like to check it out. Very little/no knowledge of the University of Leceister required.

Yes, I realize it is January. The idfic summer cannot be stopped!

Since the last check in, I have written five fics. I somehow have STILL not managed a bingo. Here is the updated hastily-edited-bingo-card screenshot:

image under a cut )

The fics are:
I Was Dreaming Restless (Welcome to Night Vale, fulfilled height difference and cybernetics)
There's a Light Inside My Head (WtNV, bloodplay and extremely explicit consent)
Run Like Sand (WtNV, hair kink)
Tupperware (WtNV, service top and food)
Team the Best Team (Elementary, M/F/M threesome)

Lot of Night Vale there, haha. I've started to wind down from Night Vale, but I might have a couple more fics in me. Certainly I have a couple more WIPs. I'm missing five bingos by only one square, man. I have a lot to do over the next couple months, so I'm not sure if I would expect much in the way of fic anytime soon. But on the other hand I DO love to procrastinate.

WIP check: I have a ton of WIPs all over the place, but the ones I think might go somewhere are an Elementary fic and a WtNV fic. Also I have a Marvel fic and a Brooklyn Nine-Nine fic AND a fic about a Shousetsu Bang*Bang story in the works and none of them would work for squares because apparently I am super stuck on a couple of these. If you have ideas for circus/ren faire AU, clothes porn, drug/alcohol use, historical AU or sickfic, please let me know. Otherwise I will write my magnum opus in which Clint Barton works at a renfaire in the 70s, wears a rad wooden top hat, gets drunk and falls off a moving truck, and breaks his arm through said fall and lays around in the hospital making up increasingly implausible billing addresses because all he has to his name is his rad wooden top hat. I can't write this fic, I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be fic, it would be an unauthorized biography with "Clint Barton" pasted in.

Anyway. Idfic summer in January woooo!
neveralarch: (Default)
Four years of putting stories on the internet! Woooooo.

I wrote and posted 102,839 words of fanfic this year. That breaks down into 31 stories (including a zine fic that isn't posted elsewhere yet). This is the second highest wordcount I've ever had (more than 2011 and 2012, less than 2010). Interestingly, my total wordcount for this year roughly equals my Doctor Who wordcount from 2010. This year I only wrote 28,238 words of Who fic, and almost all of it was for challenges or exchanges.

I'll do a proper idfic update soon, but I'd like to point out that my idfic bingo accounted for almost half of my overall wordcount (50,134 words). So I'm counting that a success. This year I wrote a bunch of things that I was the main and maybe sole audience for, and I really enjoyed it. Also this year I kept breaking my computer and then using a lot of paper to frantically scribble fic out longhand, so that is something to remember whenever I feel like I have nothing to say or that writing is a chore.

Here are those questions that I do every year for the requisite omphaloskepsis:

isn't that a good word? )
neveralarch: (Default)
But first - my giftfic! Joanne_c wrote One Night In A Castle for me and I ADORE it and maybe you will love it too. It is Lion in Winter rpf. If you have not seen A Lion in Winter you should definitely see it. If you are not aware of the ridiculousness of the actors involved in the movie (including the late greats Peter O'Toole and Katharine Hepburn) you should check that out also.

Here is what I wrote:

Team The Best Team (5715 words), for defcontwo
Elementary (TV), Teen. Marcus Bell/Ms. Hudson/Alfredo Llamosa, Joan Watson and Sherlock Holmes
Summary: Marcus gets along really well with Holmes' friends.

My assigned fic! I wrote it in like... four days, and lyryk was super awesome and beta'd it for me. It was a lot of fun to focus on the side-characters, and it was interesting to write reasonable, practical characters who can actually just decide to go on a date instead of having to angst about it forever, haha. Also I am glad I finally got a full-sized Elementary fic off the ground, I have three in my WIPs. (Aaaand this fills my M/F/M threesome square in my idfic bingo, because I can make yuletide work for me.)

And then I wrote my 10 treat-fics on the 23rd and 24th:

cut for scrolling purposes )


And that's the lot! Going to start replying to comments tomorrow, it might take a while. Hopefully I'll get some recs in soon-ish - I'm maybe half-way through the archive right now, so it'll probably be mid-January before I'm ready for recs.

zine fic

Two pieces of news!

I wrote a fic for [personal profile] holli's Discworld fanzine "The Turtle Moves" earlier this year, and I just posted it to the AO3. The whole zine (and other zines) can be downloaded free here, but here is the header info and link for my fic:

An Incomplete List
Discworld (The Truth)
Rating: g
Characters: Mrs. Cake, ensemble
Wordcount: 540ish
Summary: Being an incomplete list of the documents found in the 'Complaints and Comments' office of The Ankh-Morpork Times, after the disappearance of Mr. Timothy Bauer.

Doctor Who fans need not feel left out! I also wrote a fic about the Master's facial hair for the Katyzine, which can be downloaded here. I will post the fic separately eventually, but for now it is zine-exclusive. Check out the zine! It has amazing cover-art and many recipes and also 'recipes' and Star Trek with cats. Truly it is the best of zines.

neveralarch: (Default)
I did dw_remix! It is actually more like dw_remix happened to me. I am not sure where this wordcount came from.

First, astrogirl wrote me Genius Loci (The Evidence of Things Unseen Remix), which is a really interesting and understated take on my Leela/TARDIS fic Tiller. I like it a lot.

Second, I wrote this fic:
Nonsense All Compact (The Community Theatre Remix)
Gallifrey Audios
Rating: pg
(minor swearing and fighting. Let me know if you need details.)
Characters: Leela/Narvin, Braxiatel/Romana, Eight
Wordcount: 12,600ish
Summary: Braxiatel directs amateur community theatre in the small village of Gallifrey. Romana is the Council Leader in Gallifrey, and uses theatre as a political distraction. Eventually they hold hands.

Which is a remix of aralias' The Importance of Being On Stage. Basically, I looked at The Importance of Being on Stage and I was like 'man I love this fic, I wonder what it would be like if it was a slightly more shippy mundane theatre AU?' And then I wrote almost 13,000 words because I have lost control of my life.

So there is that - I need to read the other remixes and make some more LJ posts and also catch up on Doctor Who before the 50th anniversary. Also do grad school things. Busy, man.

Back to weird silly kinky Night Vale fic! This fills the food and service top (formerly caregiving dom - I found a better/more common name) squares in my idfic bingo.

Tupperware
Welcome to Night Vale
Rating: adult
(swearing, explicit sex, canon-typical weirdness. Let me know if you need details.)
Characters: Carlos/Cecil
Wordcount: 8,100ish
Summary: Carlos is really terrible at taking care of himself. Fortunately, Cecil is happy to do it for him.
A/N: Thanks so much to the inestimably rad narwhale_callin for the beta!

Reaction fic to episode 32 - Yellow Helicopters! There are definitely spoilers. This does not fill any squares in my idfic bingo, alas.

And the Cables Break
Welcome to Night Vale

Characters: Kevin and Cecil
Wordcount: 1,900ish
Summary: This isn't a retraining session.

I wrote this during my first week without computer, scribbling it on loose notebook paper and trying to pretend that I knew what I was doing with the style. I think it turned out okay! Even though it was surprisingly hard to code! This fic fills the hair kink square on my idfic bingo. Sort of.

Run Like Sand
Welcome to Night Vale
Rating: teen
(character injury and reeducation, hair kink, canon-typical weirdness. Let me know if you need details.)
Characters: Carlos/Cecil, Night Vale ensemble
Wordcount: 4,000ish
Summary: "Today the City Council announced that all citizens will be taxed progressively, based on the number of times they utter the word 'cheesecake.' In related news, the Chamber of Commerce has announced that five new Cheesecake Factories are being opened in Night Vale. Attendance at the grand openings is mandatory. You will be expected to make a speech."
A/N: beta thanks to[personal profile] narwhale_callin , my awesome Night Vale buddy.

These are happier things! Fandom-y things. Also slightly self-aggrandizing things, but whatever, I am fine with that.

One, I just discovered that I was recced on TVTropes. This makes me feel pretty good, not because I'm on the site, but because the troper picked my ridic Skyfall Elizabethan AU and it reminded me that I wrote a ridic Skyfall Elizabethan AU. Good times. Was that seriously only six months ago?

Two, that Hawkeye comic that astridv drew based on my story got recced on the Forbidden Planet International blog. I can claim little/no credit for the comic, but dude. Dude.

Three, I've signed up for the Doctor Who remix, and you should too! I miss the bigger remix challenge, but I wrote DW every year that I participated, so this won't be that different.

I think that's it? I don't want to spam three posts at you, haha. I'll call this it. (Especially since it took me forty minutes to post this, jeez. My internet is super spotty at the moment.)
neveralarch: (Default)
Here we go! I wrote this fic in a rush and then had to drive cross-country and didn't have my laptop and it's like two weeks later and now I can post. Finally. This fic fills the bloodplay and extremely explicit consent squares on my idfic bingo.

There's a Light Inside My Head
Welcome to Night Vale
Rating: adult
(explicit sex, bloodplay, canon-typical weirdness. Let me know if you need details.)
Characters: Carlos/Cecil
Wordcount: 3,600ish
Summary: Cecil beams at the back of Carlos' head, trying to prove that everything is fine, that he wants this, that he loves being naked and fastened to this repurposed dentist's chair, and that he's thrilled about the tray of scalpels set at arm's reach. All of these things are true! This is going to be so much fun.
A/N: beta thanks to [personal profile] narwhale_callin , who is totally rad and keeps squeeing about WtNV with me. Soon, our headcanons will conquer the world.
