Aren't you all glad that I'm back on the internet so I can share these things with you?

Yooo, I have had a stressful/dead-line filled past few days, full of little sleep and a surprise mouse corpse in the sink. So I am doing this WIP meme! I am going to post favorite lines or SOMETHING from the... seven WIPs certainly sitting on my desktop waiting for me to survive the last week of term. It would be nine, but I can't mess with the Yuletide-related ones.

If you want to know more about any of the WIPs, just ask and I will happily babble. And feel free to take this chance and post your own WIP stuff, because I'm always interested to know what people are working on.


fic from MANY fandoms under the cut )

Fanworks List

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. )

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.

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.

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.

First thing: I have been trying to do a personal tumblr again. I'm not sure if I'll stick with it, but I do enjoy looking at pictures. If we haven't connected on there yet, let me know your tumblr (mine is just neveralarch).

Second thing: I have been consuming media this summer! It's nice.

Still watching FMA! It is good, and keeps subverting my expectations, because I know how the story goes and IT'S NOT GOING THERE. Reserving final judgment until I finish the series - I'm at like episode 41 right now.

Next - I saw The Lion in Winter with my mom and brother, and OH MY GOD

lion in winter reaction )

Finally! I have blown through books two and three of the Matthew Swift series. I think there are a couple people on my flist who are fans? I can't remember.

matthew swift reactions! )

So, yes. I am enjoying consuming all of this media.

I am not with the show, I really cannot do the show, but the FANDOM. Never has a fandom pushed, nay, stamped on my buttons like this. And at the same time, there's this thing I cannot deal with at all called 'cannibalism,' and guess what that show's about!

I have read two Hannibal fics because they each had the perfect perfect fic summary for my id. And then I spent a while with my skin crawling and feeling vaguely nauseous. But the fics are REALLY good and REALLY stamping on my buttons, so there has been some rereading. And some more nausea. Someone save me from myself/this fandom. And the AO3 Collars tag, because it is definitely the middleman here.

Anyway. Needed to vent. I'm still finals-ing and behind on dealing with comments/emails, but if you have a fandom that mashes your buttons and your squicks at the same time, please share! I would like to know if this happens to people not me.

Let me mention my giftfic again real quick first: A Pain in My SideKICK (The Non-Adventures of Wonderella) and Nonstarter (By the Sword), both by leidolette who is apparently a stellar human being. They're awesome.

Here is what I wrote:

Some Time Before (7080 words), for anstaar
Discworld, Teen. Sybil Ramkin/Samuel Vimes, Adora Belle Dearheart/Moist von Lipwig
Summary: The thing about being young is that it happens to most everyone.

My assigned fic! I was deeply uncertain about this as I was writing it, but people liked it and I think it must have turned pretty well after all. And it has four of my favorite Discworld characters in it, so.

And then I wrote ten treats while not writing a term paper:

these are cut to save your scrolling )

The end! Tomorrow I start replying to comments, and then I will finally stop talking about Yuletide for at least nine months.

Watching the election results (sort of), but mostly watching Craig Ferguson's show, because he had Joel McHale from Community on. I used to watch the Late Late Show every night, but it's hard for me to keep up and I don't actually care about media gossip and I started to overdose on Craig. Catching a show after not watching in three years... god, this thing has gotten weird. Like, the robot is way more built up, and it talks and flaps its hands and makes out with Joel McHale? And there's a fireplace with a rhinoceros head over it? And a stable with a horse puppet hanging out? Craig keeps getting up and dancing behind his desk between segments? What is this show?

(I mean, mostly it's reminding why I loved this show so much, because it's totally ridiculous and makes no sense at all, haha.)

ETA: oh man, this interview with McHale is the most adorable thing since Craig had Peter Capaldi on his show, if you have a few minutes and care bout Community at all, you should def give it a look.

Three day weekends are the bane of my existence. The extra Monday is never very good out at the ren faire, and then I'm totally useless on Tuesday. I managed to briefly get out of the house this afternoon, but I've since mostly just messed around and watched the US-Canada wheelchair basketball game (which was rad as hell, and then we won :D). By the way, who's excited for paralympics streaming? Me. I am the most excited. I missed wheelchair fencing today, and will def miss it tomorrow, because I have class, but I find all of the sports in the paralympics to be AWESOME to watch, so it is okay. I saw part of one of the seated volleyball matches too, and it was great.

Haven't watched the new Doctor Who episode, and I'm feeling kind of ambivalent about tracking it down. Maybe I'll watch it tomorrow, as an after-class thing, I'm just not awake enough today. I have been watching The Wire, though, as part of my campaign to avoid current television. And man, The Wire is good television - a police/crime show with a really tight grasp on Baltimore as both a setting and a kind of character. Just finished season one, and seriously considering starting season two tonight, even though I have a bunch of other stuff that needs done. I'll probably end up writing a ridiculous Teen Wolf crossover, even though The Wire deserves better - one of the actors was in both shows, and Doctor Who crossovers have taught me that this makes a crossover/fusion fair game.

I've gone from having an aversion to Teen Wolf fic to having a list of fics I'm not writing. Like, I'm not writing the AU where they work at a ren faire, because I ALWAYS want to write that AU for whatever fandom I'm into when I've been working for a while. It's too close to home (like, literally), and I am worried that people won't get it/will get it/idk, I am worried. Even though Derek as a life-long rennie who works at a leather place and Stiles as a playtron with his own armor and sword would be hilarious, nope, not writing this, not least because I can't even talk about it without slipping into rennie slang. It would be a mess.

The list of fics I am writing currently stands at: involved AU that isn't going anywhere and is mostly an excuse for extended Peter, Laura and Derek interactions; and comedy Derek-in-heat fic. I basically knew that I would be working on the AU as soon as I started listening to Sail on repeat and having feelings about Peter Hale (courtesy of this fanmix). The Derek-in-heat thing woke me up on Sunday night (when I had work in the morning) to scribble out half a page. Thanks, brain.

But! There is also a list of things I have written! I hung out on the spice up your life Teen Wolf rare pairs ficathon some, because I love doing prompts. I only ended up writing gen fic, though I do still have my eye on a couple pairing prompts. So:

Teen Wolf
Rating: gen
(major character injury)
Characters: Peter Hale, Derek Hale, Erica Reyes, Boyd, Isaac Lahey
Wordcount: 1300 words
Summary: Derek gets seriously injured, but his pack and the last of his family are there to take care of him.

And Look at Them
Teen Wolf
Rating: gen
(brief references to canon character illness and character death)
Characters: Derek Hale, Boyd, Isaac Lahey, Erica Reyes
Wordcount: 1200ish words
Summary: The Pack's feelings on Derek's apparent leather jacket requirement.

That's it at the moment. I'm going to make soup and try not to worry about my two classes tomorrow - I have to go be a real grad student, agh. Not sure how to do that when my head is still full of Teen Wolf, but I'm sure I'll figure it out.

I acquired a microphone on Sunday, for a SECRET PROJECT which I will probably be working on for quite a while with nothing to show for it as of yet. But while I was testing the microphone and retraining myself on audacity, I recorded a bunch of very short podfic of my own stories. It's all in very small fandoms, so I don't know if anyone will be interested, but I figured I'd let people know anyway.

Also, concrit is super appreciated at the moment, as I have no idea what I'm doing. Unless it's about how I mispronounce things, because I know I do that and I try to correct it, but it's unfortunately going to keep happening until I learn how to pronounce ALL the words, haha.

Under the cut: podfic for Dinosaur Comics, Doctor Who BFA, Journey to the West, Making Fiends, and Tintin. )

Let me talk about my Carnivale giftfic again, first: From the Dirt by arllama was really great, and I love it and the author forever because I got a story for meeee. (I'm like this during every story exchange, but especially Yuletide. A story for meeeee.)

And Reveals! I wrote eleven fics again, just like last year - it may possibly become a tradition, though it's probably best that I don't try to commit to it. I was much more delayed on my main fic this time, and then I ended up writing a second fic for my assigned person and a bunch of random treats on the 20th, which was better than last year (when I wrote treats on the 24th). Basically my only resolution last year was to start writing treats earlier, so that worked out, haha.

Short headers and some commentary:

...under the cut )

In summary, Yuletide was a blast and now I have to go respond to comments. And start stockpiling obscure fandoms for next year.

This is for my Asexual character prompting deal, except I decided I'd rather make separate posts for anything that comes out of it. It makes my life marginally easier not to break things up into tiny comments.

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Rating: basically gen
(some suggestiveness, bad innuendo)
Characters: ace!Odo, Quark
Wordcount: 650ish
Summary: The temptations of the holodeck are many and varied.
A/N: written for justice_turtle! Hope this suits and that my first attempt at DS9 isn't too wonky.

I'm flying to Florence tomorrow, so I might be out of contact for a few days. Hopefully I'll be having fun with a place to stay, although the people who have offered me a spot in their backyard are being a bit off-and-on with the giving me information thing. Anyway, after that I'm flying to the US next Saturday. I'm just going to apologize now for long delays in responding to anything.

But before I go! [ profile] sophia_sol  was doing this meme where you answer five questions, and then you give other people five questions. These are my answers - if anyone wants some questions for themselves, just ask (although, as noted above, you might have to wait a while for the questions).

This is cut for babble and a tiny bit of swearing. Possibly an abuse trigger? Only discussed in a fictional and vague context. )

Man, it's so nice outside, and I had plans, and instead I'm holed up in my room, doing homework and watching brains leak out of my nose. Ew. At least the fever's gone. ANYWAY, this means it's time for another fic repost.

The Man with the Fob Watch
Doctor Who, Sherlock
Rating: PG
(general villainy)
Characters: slight Eleven/Moriarty!Master, Amy, Rory, Lestrade, Sherlock, John Watson, Mycroft.
Wordcount: 2,000ish
Summary: John and Sherlock are hanging over a piranha tank when they notice the fob watch.
A/N: Originally posted here for a prompt on the best_enemies anonmeme. Part XII of the unanoning mission!

Made it back from London a good six days ago, for those of you keeping track at home. It was definitely awesome. I went to 12 museums in 6 days, walked around so much I broke one of my boots, tried really hard to buy new boots and got the Thick of It book instead, and met a ton of people. Including [ profile] aralias (on purpose) and [ profile] x_los  (in a random coincidence), who were both really nice and somehow willing to put up with my weird and slightly exhausted self.

I was so weird on that London trip, I don't even know. I'm pretty sure I was high on museums or something. (I am still ALL ABOUT the museums in London - I will spare you my 530 photos of the British Museum, but I haven't decided whether I'll spare you the essay on the erasure of procurement that every museum ever has done. It's sad when there's more visible documentation from your average sideshow than from your average museum.)

In actual fandom news, I did finally manage to listen to Gallifrey Series 4. It was... good? cut in case you care and are still avoiding spoilers ) Here's hoping Series Five doesn't take as long.

Non-Gallifrey related, I finished the first draft of my remix, so now I have to actually go back and make it good. Right now it's kind of a mash of two different themes and as many random references as I could cram in, so not much on the sense-making front. But I have a first draft, which is a huge relief. I think I might miss DS9 rewatch tomorrow, which is SAD but not sad enough to make me stay up until four in the morning or whatever to watch with the other group. And I started engulfing White Collar a few days ago and have now seen all but the last episode of the first season - it's a really good thing that most of my classes haven't started yet, there's no way I could do that otherwise.

Okay, I'm going to go buy groceries or do reading for class or something useful. How are other people's lives doing?

So, I've been watching this old German science fiction show called Raumpatrouille Orion. It's basically original Star Trek except with slightly better special effects and more emphasis (so far, anyway) on earth-defense than on space exploration. The dialogue's campy, the acting's okay, and the plots are a little haphazard (probably made more so by my iffy comprehension). But. But the vision of the future is amazing.

In the first episode, the team is at a bar, or something. And what follows is, well. Indescribable. So I'm not going to try. (No German required for the video, fyi.)

Yeah. I've watched this scene about five times now, and I still don't know what the guys in the foreground are saying because I keep getting distracted. Fish! Elbow waggling! What.
neveralarch: (Default)
So, I spent this weekend finishing things. And when I say things, I do not mean that I actually finished any of my creative projects, the books I have been reading, or even my homework. Bah. Things, in fact, means TV shows.
