girl in the snow by lyckaa

by [ profile] lyckaa

Happy holidays, everyone, or if it's still on its way for you, I hope that you have an absolute blast when it comes. As romantic as it looks, if you're in the Northern hemisphere, I don't recommend enjoying the snow a la mode of the above example. And if you're in the South like me, well, bring on the mocktails. ♥

I recently got back into state and we finally had our internet connected at the new apartment (phew!), so I thought I'd kick this off before I disappeared again under the sea of work + tying up writing challenges in the sprint to the end of 2011 ([ profile] bellatemple, this means you).

It's been another amazing year in fandom, I've met so many new people and had such a great time vaulting the hurdles with the lot of you. I've learned a lot about myself, my writing, and I want to give back to you guys for always giving me reasons to smile; especially on Mondays.

I'll be taking prompts until late December for any of the fandoms you can see on my profile page. I write for any/all pairings or gen, as long as I know the people involved (and if not, I'll let you know!), so please have fun; go nuts. Don't feel shy if we've never spoken before, I'd love to meet and write for you, too!

To ensure that I get back to people in a timely fashion, I'm going to respond in either three sentence or 500 word commentfics.

To help me keep on track, please prompt in the following format: Fandom, Pairing (or Gen), Prompt.

Hope this finds everyone well! ♥

Fills to-date:
For [ profile] zekkass: Let's hope it's a good one (without any fear); Gabriel, Jimmy, Claire, Donnie, Robin (PG, [ profile] vessels_anon 'verse)
For [ profile] morganoconner: I'd change the world and the rules (PG-13; Gabriel/Castiel; Human!AU, incest)
For [ profile] chaos_dreaming: My way back to broken (PG-13; Michael/Adam, Lucifer)
For [ profile] chosenfire28: On the third day (PG-13, Dean/Castiel)

I've been intermittently packing house for a week and the day job had consumed my brain.

The writing mojo must return. Surely, a porn-a-thon is the key? (No, my current project is gen, but words are words....)

There are a bunch of people I want to write for in order to say 'thank you' for the last round, so I hope you're all in this time!

Round five is open!

Borrowed from every snowflake and their friend this week:

Give me pairings (or characters). Give me an AU setting. I will write you a three-sentence fic.

I will also finally be responding to comments and getting down to work on the draft of [ profile] xmenbigbang this morning. I have a week (and a clear outline, thankfully). Stranger miracles have happened. ;P

The story will follow the Brotherhood after the end of X-Men: First Class with background Charles/Erik, Erik/Raven, Azazel/Riptide, and Alex/Hank/Sean, but they're incidental to the story.

What are people's opinions on listing background character relationships when the movement is primarily gen?

For [ profile] synnerxx: SPN, Gabriel/Michael/Lucifer/Raphael [PG]; Gabriel owns a candy shop

For [ profile] nights_fang: SPN, Lucifer/Adam/Michael [NC-17]; College!AU, Michael has a grudge against Dean, but he also has a plan
For [ profile] cashay: SPN, Michael/Adam/Sam/Lucifer [PG]; Prison!AU, Maybe being in jail doesn't suck all that much
For [ profile] ladyknightanka: SPN, Michael/Adam [PG]; High School!AU & Detective!AU, Adam wants to ask his brother's partner to the prom

Just a PSA that I'm going to be posting a handful of twitfic from the past few months here soon, so - it's not a virus. It's just me (just as bad? Or more better?).

Also, there is another love meme making the rounds and I want you guys to all go over there, sign your names, so I can leave you some hugs and kisses. Link to your thread from your journal, or even better, as a comment here (or via the twitterverse), because I don't want to miss loving more on all of you!

I'm so sorry to read that a lot of you have been sick, stressed, or just a bit aimless, recently, so I think we could all use a little love right now. Personally, I've been pretty rundown from work, but it's fulfilling at the same time, and I have wonderful people around me. I'm very lucky and very grateful. ♥

blue_bells: (stock :: hugshugshugs)
It's been an age since I posted here, but after the six month marathon of my last (and first!) big bang, I really needed a break and I thought I'd spare you the spam of my recovery.

(Television. Food. Work. More food. Oh, and hey, I actually made it out to the cinema once or twice! Then there was food.)

So, of course I've been editing stories for a bunch of people instead. I don't seem to understand the meaning of breaks. ^^;

I still intend to get Somewhere to Begin on to A03, DW, and an ePub format, and I will get to that as soon as I can. If you've been waiting for any of those, I really appreciate your patience. If you're ever curious what I'm up to, you can peek into my twitter account and witness the madness; and say 'hi'! I don't bite!

In the meantime have a meme, borrowed from my entire flist:

Pick one of my fics, and I'll give you three details that didn't make it into the fic. Background canon, deleted scenes, or a look into the future. My choice, but if you have a specific question you can ask it in your request.

And a plug for one of my favourite new shows that's doing exceptionally well for a baby fandom. Suits has a big bang and sign ups close September 10! I'm exercising control and advertising only, for a change:

Hope this finds you all doing well, my lovelies! ♥
blue_bells: (stocks :: cogs&wheel)
Fly-by meme ganked from [ profile] zekkass because I actually checked around the flist today and this amused me (coming back to read the fruits of your labour soon, my sweet! :D):

Go look at your blog/journal. Find the last Fandom-related thing you posted. The characters in that post are now your team-mates in the Zombie Apocalypse. How fucked are you?

I'd have the most powerful telepath in the world, an acrobatic, furry blue genius who could bench press a bus, and a GQ exclusive who shoots explosive hula hoops out of his chest.

I'm feeling pretty saved. They'd wrap this apocalypse up in a week.

(And I promise I am returning soon with actual fic updates to this journal.)
blue_bells: (Default)
I completely fail at staying focused tonight, but I said I'd cross-post this meme here. I've seen this on a few of your journals and I'd love to get to them all, so I will catch up on this when I return to you, internet!

I'm on a bit of a hiatus for writing at the moment and the madness of EOFY in the office, so I hope to see you all again soon!

Also, I like to think I'm advanced, but apparently I fall short when confronted with figuring out these text boxes, so apologies for the long post! And all the exclamation points, wow.

Comment with "bring it on!" and:
• I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
• Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
• Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions (but only if you want to).

Wherein I fail at having favourites of anything except acoustic guitar duos, sci-fi compensates for its recent neglect on my journal, and I recommend krump.

Because my excitement is at all new levels of inappropriate. Still under the cut (hosted at [ profile] spiffy_things) in case people haven't seen the finale; hell, I only saw it a few hours ago.

blue_bells: (Supernatural :: Adam)
» Title: Reasons not to text half-asleep
» Fandom: Supernatural
» Warnings: AU (all human), angst, h/c
» Pairing(s)/Characters: Michael/Adam, mentions of Dean/Castiel, and past Michael/Dean
» Summary: Michael is the most frustrating tutor Adam’s ever had.
» A/N: Written for [ profile] ladyknightanka of the Five Acts Meme under the prompts: AU, guilt/hurt/comfort, angst, and courtship. Posted here for length.

Granted, he’s the *only* tutor Adam’s ever had for pre-med, but he thinks it’s some cruel joke that Dean referred him to the only one at his college with a GPA average of 4.0 majoring in Adam’s field who looked like he’d just walked off the set of Grey’s Anatomy. )

This post is in follow-up to the fifteen characters meme that went up a few days ago. You guys probably have no idea how much your scenarios and accidental pairings made me laugh or ooh at their unintentional awesome.

I mean, Lucifer/Raphael/Caprica!Six? I don't think I would have encountered this notion so soon by myself.

I have to warn you, if you haven't seen what's been aired of Battlestar Galactica or Supernatural to date, there will be spoilers afoot!

The original meme:

1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask your f'list to post questions in the comments. For example: 'One, nine and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?' 'Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?' 'Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?' 'Write a drabble in which three and eleven fight crime.' (...possibly not technically a question.)

3) After your f'list has asked enough questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.

Here are the characters I chose )

Can I just say how impressed I was that although I only picked four characters from Battlestar Galactica, you guys managed to hit at least one 99% of the time? Luv luv, guys, luv luv.

From [ profile] ladyknightanka

Leoben/Castiel: They decide to elope. Why wouldn't they want a ceremony? )

Michael and Sam don't get along. Why not? )

Caprica and Lucifer are planning their first date. Where do they go and why? )

Kara and Raphael are expecting. Who's the mommy? )

Gaius just murdered someone. Would Adam help him cover it up or turn him in? )

From [ profile] alexthegreat

Caprica and Adam are set up on a blind date by Gaius )

Castiel and Ellen are in jail. How did they get there? How do they get out? )

From [ profile] lucifer999

Lucifer, Caprica and Raphael are in a relationship. Dean is pregnant with Caprica’s child (wow, I love the accidental mpreg and role reversal here) and wants to become part of the family. How does that happen and what becomes of Dean? )

Ellen and Gaius are in love, but must stop Gabriel from destroying the planet with the help of Leoben. Do they like Leoben or hate him and which planet are they on? )

Kara and Adam are about to enter an arranged marriage, but one (or both) are madly in love with Bobby, who is obsessed with Sam and is carrying Balthazar's child.  )

Gabriel is miniaturised to 15cm tall and bought from the store by Raphael as a gift for Michael. What happens to Gabriel? Does he get his normal size back or remain as a shortie? Why was he turned? Does he know Michael and Raphael? )
blue_bells: (stock :: sleeping in)
I did this a few years ago and the results were lolarious, so, how about another round, guys?

Yanked from [ profile] zekkass and [ profile] grlkat2:

1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask your f'list to post questions in the comments. For example: 'One, nine and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?' 'Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?' 'Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?' 'Write a drabble in which three and eleven fight crime.' (...possibly not technically a question.)

3) After your f'list has asked enough questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.

ETA: So that you're not disappointed if you decide to play, know that I'm choosing characters from Battlestar Galactica and Supernatural.
blue_bells: (stock :: looking out)
I say 'eccentric ideas', because this is the Google definition of a 'kink'. Truly, I tell you, Google knows little about a lot of things. :P

While waiting for my brain to come back online, have a meme I ganked from [ profile] grlkat2.

It's a kink meme. Wherein I get too academic and stuffy for my own good, but I realise there are still tropes to be tampered with on my writing to-do list. )

In conclusion, I love happy endings, I hate to leave anyone out in stories, and I will read anything for pure academic purposes. But I can't condone whipped cream, even on cake. :P
blue_bells: (stock :: bridge over troubled water)
Despite occasionally empathising with character's plights in fanfic, when was the last time you actually sat back after writing something and thought, "Huh. I'm not sure how I feel about that. I think I feel... douche-y"?

I don't mean in an intellectual way because you know the difference between right and wrong, because you know that if such-and-such were to happen in real life that it would be reprehensible. Writing and reading is escapism, so the rules are different. I mean that feeling you get when somebody - whose opinion you care about - looks at you like you've betrayed or disappointed them and you didn't see it coming.

I hit 44k on my big bang last night and was left with this feeling. I'm calling it muse guilt. I was so bemused that I had to stop halfway through the afternoon and write to one of my friends about it. Don't worry, this is not actually keeping me up at night, but I wonder what it means that I haven't had this experience writing in the last six months on the myriad of other stories. I know I'm lingering on this a day later because I'm running on two hours of sleep, we've had an abrupt change to colder weather, and I've been living and breathing these characters for over three months.

I know this happens to a lot of people through the course of their writing. It's not quite contrition, but it's still fascinating.

So, when's the last time you had muse guilt? What were you writing at the time?

And since turn about is fair play, here's a meme I ganked from [ profile] ravenspear.

The problem with the internet is that we might think we know each other, but there are plenty of things we miss. Here's your chance to ask me anything you want to know. It can be big or little, about the past or opinions or unimportant little extras. Whatever it is, just ask!
blue_bells: (Supernatural :: Castiel)
This is the reason I got distracted with the fantasy of an angels and demons gangster!AU last month.


(Even if I failed the basic requirement by accidentally letting the demons come out on top.)

blue_bells: (stock :: sunset rainbow parasol)
A lot of us write to music, some of us even compile fanmixes, or fic-specific soundtracks to help us through that one piece.

So, pick five fics from your journal -- preferably five that are on your default page right now -- and tell us what song(s) helped you write them. Through friends, you might hear a new tune that could help you, too. <3

01] Castle += How this will end (Ryan/Esposito, PG-13, 1300w)
'How It Ends', Devotchka: So, I first heard this song on the US SYTYCD being performed through contemporary dance. It was moving. Devotchka's music is a bit hit and miss for me, but this song had the hollow ache that helped me write Javier from Ryan's perspective. I hope it worked!

02] Supernatural += When there's no one left to pawn (Lucifer/Adam/Michael, PG-13, 1200w)
'Beat the Devil's Tattoo', Black Rebel Motorcycle Club: This is actually one of my driving songs, but the moment I heard it, I knew it was perfect angel/demon fodder. Look at the title! Read those lyrics! Listen to that sound! HIGHWAY, HERE WE COME!

03] Supernatural += Say After Me (Castiel, Gabriel, Dean; PG-13; 1300w)
'Take On Me', as covered by Anni B Sweet (skip the ad if prompted): This is one of my favourite covers ever and it had the nostalgic innocence to keep me grounded with thoughts of family, siblings and trust. Not to mention I adore ukuleles.

04] Supernatural += Dedition (Michael/Jimmy, Jimmy/Others; PG-13; 600w)
'Drumming', Florence and the Machine: Florence is really conducive to writing angels, it's something about the streaming, endless sound of her music and the range of her voice that can tip from a river bed to the clouds. This song had the consuming, head-spinning sensation that I needed for Jimmy's drunken haze before reeling against Michael.

05] Supernatural += Whole Lotta Love (Pamela/Jo, PG-13, 650w)
'Whole Lotta Love', Led Zeppelin: ZEPPELIN IS KING. This song was already in my head from listening to it repeatedly on the road trip beforehand and when I saw this prompt, I already knew Pamela fancied herself something of a rock star, so this song was the perfect fuel for her and Jo.

Wherein we pause the writing attempts to see if a meme will help restart my brain.

Tell me a pairing, and I will tell you:

1. When or if I started shipping them:
2. What I think their challenge is:
3. What makes me happy about them:
4. What makes me sad about them:
5. What moment I wish had never happened:
6. Who I'd be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other:
7. My happily ever after for them:
