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.

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!

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

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!

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.

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!

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? )

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

So I was going to start a two-day drive today, but instead I waited around for my air conditioner to get fixed. Leaving tomorrow instead! And I wrote this thing while I was waiting, in like three hours. I'm about to lose internet/computer access for possibly a while, so I figured I'd just post it now. This fic fills the height difference and cybernetics squares on my idfic bingo.

I Was Dreaming Restless
Welcome to Night Vale
Rating: pg
(swearing, canon-typical weirdness. Let me know if you need details.)
Characters: Carlos/Cecil
Wordcount: 2,500ish
Summary: It's late or maybe early and Carlos is exhausted and his mind is wandering. Because he can't sleep, because Cecil is terrible at sharing a bed.

The summer is winding down and I've managed to write five fics, so I figured it was time for an idfic update. Let's see how I've progressed on my bingo card, using this hastily edited screenshot!

it is under a cut )

The fics are:
Change of Engagement (By the Sword, fulfilled roadtrip and fencing AU)
Crocodile Clips (Doctor Who, b_e fill and robots/cybernetics)
Sword Swallower (Teen Wolf, awkward/bad sex and arguing during sex)
'The Effects of Cervical Restraint on the Appearance of my Boyfriend.' Working Paper. (Welcome to Night Vale, collars, trainee/inexperienced dom, and extremely explicit consent)
Ain't Filled with Gentle Things (Welcome to Night Vale, fistfights and anger management)

So, that's three almost bingos, and a little less than half of the card covered. Not bad. I have fics planned for most of the remaining squares, so we'll see how far I get on them. I had hopes for a while that I might actually do the first five in all different fandoms, but then I stalled on the Matthew Swift fic I was writing and Night Vale ate my brain. Maybe literally.

WIP check: right now I have two Matthew Swift fics, two Avengers/Marvel fics, a Star Trek fic, and like a billion Night Vale fics in various stages of completion/idle daydreaming. Hopefully I can write more over the next four or so weeks, though I'll be packing and driving a thousand miles and working during that time. I can't really dash this stuff off, haha. I keep thinking 'I'll just write a quick pwp' and then it's 5,000 words and three days later, and no one has gotten laid.

I'm feeling pretty accomplished, though! Coming into this project my main worry was that I would end up writing unreadable stuff or I would get bored of my own id. But I am seriously enjoying the fics I've already written, and people have been very nice about them. Success all round!

An anon over on tumblr has been encouraging my hate-shipping tendencies, which honestly isn't very difficult to do. This fic fulfills the fistfights and anger management squares on my idfic bingo. (Actual anger management does not take place - it's more like just anger. But it is my id, ok.)

Ain't Filled with Gentle Things
Welcome to Night Vale
Rating: teen
(fighting/minor violence, makeouts, canon-typical weirdness. Let me know if you need details.)
Characters: Carlos/Cecil, Cecil/Steve Carlsberg
Wordcount: 5,900ish
Summary: A typical PTA meeting in Night Vale. You know, glow cloud possession, picking senior prom decorations, fistfights over grammar, the usual. (Set post ep 27; no spoilers for ep 28.)

I've done it! I've written collar kink. I am so proud of myself. It was supposed to be a quick sex comedy, but it turned into this sprawling thing instead. I'm happy with it anyway. This fulfills a bunch of squares on my idfic bingo: collars, trainee/inexperienced dom, and extremely explicit consent. Posting it and then going offline for the weekend, so hopefully it is not full of problems.

'The Effects of Cervical Restraint on the Appearance of my Boyfriend.' Working Paper.
Welcome to Night Vale
Rating: teen
(collar kink, light pet play, makeouts, canon-typical weirdness and minor body horror. Let me know if you need details.)
Characters: Carlos/Cecil
Wordcount: 7,000ish
Summary: Carlos and Cecil experiment with collars.

Here is a fic! I am sorry about the title! This fulfills the 'awkward sex' and 'arguing during sex' squares on my idfic bingo. It's also Derek/Stiles fic with basically no connection to canon, because this is apparently what the id wants. I'm dedicating it to everyone else who can't figure out the whole tongue brushing thing.

Sword Swallower
Teen Wolf
Rating: adult
(sex, swearing, warning for a lot of stuff about gagging/bile.)
Characters: Derek/Stiles
Wordcount: 2,500ish
Summary: "I was just thinking," said Stiles. "Oral sex is pretty great, right?" A post-canon fic about oversensitive gag reflexes and also over-extended metaphors.

I've committed Shalka fic! It fills the "b_e fill" and "robots/cybernetics" squares on my idfic bingo. I've been meaning to write this fic for almost exactly two years, but I kept hoping that someone else would write it for me...

Crocodile Clips
Doctor Who
Rating: adult
(sex, swearing.)
Characters: Shalka!Doctor/Shalka!Master
Wordcount: 2,500ish
Summary: The Doctor gets sidetracked while repairing the Master's knee.
A/N: Written for an anon on the best_enemies anonmeme who prompted partially-disassembled sex.

I started the idfic summer planning to write a lot of short and silly BDSM porn. Instead I've just written 8k of mostly-gen fencing fic. I feel like I could have predicted this outcome.

Anyway, it's about one third silly roadtrip stuff, one third intense fencing, and one third Villard and Suba angst. Apparently this is what my id wants - hopefully it's readable. (This fulfills the roadtrip and fencing AU squares on my idfic bingo, even though it's not an AU. There's a lot of fencing.)

Change of Engagement
By the Sword
Rating: pg
(canoodling, swearing)
Characters/ships: Max Suba/Rachel, Alexander Villard, Danny Gallagher, Erin Clavelli, Jim Trebor, Johnson, Tanos, Hobbs, and Tatiana. (A note on minor characters if you need to remind yourself who they are.)
Wordcount: 8200ish words
Summary: A year after their big confrontation, Suba and Villard run into each other at the same competition. It doesn't go that well.
A/N: There's a lot of fencing stuff in here - while I've tried to make it accessible to the non-fencer, I've also put together a few notes on some of the more obscure points, which you can find here.
Also, this fic comes with a soundtrack, because idk what I'm doing with my life. You can get it here.

idfic summer

22/5/13 07:59 pm
neveralarch: (Default)
Okay, so - I have spent the last academic year under the thrall of grad school, and now I am free for the summer. Mostly. Except for three projects and a conference. Like 80% free of grad school.

And the thing is, I've spent all of this spring reading other people's fic and thinking about writing my own fic and not having time and going 'but this summer, dude, you can do it this summer.' And I've also been thinking about what kind of things I find really compelling in fic that I hardly ever write myself, because it's too embarrassing or too self-indulgent or too ooc or WHATEVER. But fanfic is supposed to be fun, right? Which means I should be able to write some of my bullet-proof kinks without feeling guilty.

So I'm declaring an idfic summer. And I always wanted to do a fanfic bingo, so I made myself a bingo card.

b_e fillrobots/cyberneticshair pullingextremely explicit consentfencing AU

awkward/bad sexanger managementany kind of fanvidpredicament bondageclothes porn
ghostscaregiving domfoodM/F/M threesomedrug/alcohol use

Some of these are things I write or used to write all the time, some of these are things I just want to do, and quite a few are things I love when someone else does them but I've just never tried. Also I would like to try and make a fanvid.

I figure I'll just count all of the relevant spaces as marked for each fic/fanwork - none of this one work per square stuff, I'd like to make this reasonably doable. If anyone wants to join me, that would be rad! I will even make you a card if you want (though it will be based just on what I think you like, so probably not super accurate). But either way, when I reference the idfic summer in the future, this is what I'm talking about.
