She has too few dreams of anything but disaster, and she’s not sure whether that’s because nothing else is as important or because that’s all her gift is good for. )

Well, if all the cool kids are doing it...most popular 10 fics meme, taken from [personal profile] argylepiratewd! (I have been busily working on attempting to have an actual life, but stay tuned to this channel over the next week or two for a. at least one de-anoned [livejournal.com profile] kinkme_merlin fill, b. some [livejournal.com profile] rarewomen treats*, and possibly c. the unveiling of a Secret Project!

* Treats can be written by all, participant or otherwise (and a later post explicitly clarifies dropouts can also write treats)! To find out about it and get a list of requests, see this post at the comm. *waves More Fic About Ladies banner*

(...also, yes, you deduce correctly from my mention of "treats" yet no mention of my actual assignment fic that I ended up having an Abject Failure At Things moment and having to release my assignment into the wild due to a case of having no idea how in hell to write what my recipient wanted. /o\ Oh well. I did try, which already makes this better than I've done for any exchange yet. I think.)


ANYWAY, now that I've gotten terribly sidetracked, here's the 10 fics meme. )

notes: Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] lady_ragnell for looking this over for me and making me clarify some of my wilder verbal flights of fancy; any remaining errors are entirely my fault. Title is from Heather Dale’s “Three Queens”. Written as a [livejournal.com profile] rarewomen treat for [archiveofourown.org profile] Netgirl_y2k.

Bela comes back from California, from Paris, from British Columbia, from the Caribbean. She comes back tanned, red-haired, paler again. She brings postcards but never stories. )

Dear Rare Women Fic Exchange writer,

First, everything in this letter is optional! If you already have something very clearly in mind, you can skip reading it and I'm sure it'll be fine; I didn't request anyone I don't want to read about. This got kind of long because I have a tendency to ramble and I've never done a fic exchange before, so I erred on the side of overinforming and I didn't have any other letters to point to, but please don't feel you have to read this. I started with general likes and dislikes, and then have thoughts about each of the fandoms in sections with bold headers, so you can skim if you'd rather.

Read more... )

Thank you so much! I'm looking forward to reading whatever you write. ♥

I finally got some recs posted for the rest of the Snowflake Challenge! Day 2 is here (22 recs, if I'm counting right, in six fandoms + a panfandom rec), and Day 6 is here (2 recs in two fandoms). As you can tell, I got a little carried away with Day 2.

Day 8 asks us to talk about something we're good at. Read more... )
nonisland: image of a pen with text "nonisland" (Default)
I promise--I honestly, sincerely promise--that I am going to catch up on several other bits of the Snowflake Challenge (probably not the social-interaction-with-strangers ones, because social anxiety woooo), and I actually have a detailed recs post half-coded for Day Two (rec other people's fic, especially rareish fic) which I keep getting distracted from by other things (I'm still going through everyone else's self-rec lists from Day One, as well as real life and other fannish activities); this is not turning into an All About Me thing, I promise.

That said, Day 7: create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive.

(Whether or not you've been participating, and whether or not you investigate my own wishlist, I also would like to encourage you to check out everyone else's wishlists (not all of them if you'd rather not, of course! maybe just click a few at random?) to see if there's anything that someone else would like that you're willing and able to provide.)

I'm actually really bad at asking for things. [fandoms: all (1); Stargate Atlantis (1); Marvel comics (1)] )

I'm still struggling with the reclist for Day 2 of the snowflake challenge--the generalized reclist with a special focus on less-popular fanworks--because every time I think I've decided on what to do I get a sudden urge to add more fics. Therefore, have the Day 6 reclist first: rec at least three fanworks that I thought I wouldn't like but that I ended up loving [or admiring].

I only have two, because I'm bad at reading outside my comfort zone and I pretty much never go into fics expecting not to like them unless they are outside my comfort zone.

I have, here, provided warnings. The fics--both are fics--are recced in decreasing order of how triggering I expect the main reason-I-thought-I-wouldn't-like-it may be to the most potential readers, and skip links have been provided at the beginning of this post after the main warnings so that, if you're using a screenreader or just would rather not scroll past, you can do so more easily. I have tried to put enough space between recs that you will be able to avoid seeing the first one either from the beginning or from the end, and the second one from the middle; my apologies to everyone inconvenienced by this. Two recs. )

[livejournal.com profile] lady_ragnell requested DVD commentaries for two of my Merlinfics when I asked for people on Tumblr to give me things to occupy myself with, so here’s the first! My commentaries are in bold; the original fic is...not. The header applies to the commentary, not the fic.

“Your Body Lost in Legends” || DVD Commentary
rating: mature audiences
characters/pairings: Arthur/Freya, Arthur/Merlin, Freya/Merlin
length: ~3500 words
content notices: major character death (afterlife-fic); canon-typical violence, references to war; brief sexually-explicit language, sexual content
read the original: on the Archive of Our Own | on DreamWidth | on LiveJournal

Adventures in History! )

If any of you have any questions this commentary didn’t answer, I’d be happy to answer them now.

This is several days late because reccing fics is something that makes me irrationally anxious ("what if people judge my taste?") and I consume very few other fanworks. That said, here's Day 2 of the Snowflake Challenge: post a rec to at least three fanworks (I, uh, got a bit lot carried away) that I didn't create, with special focus on fanworks less likely to be praised. There are a lot more things I could rec, but the reason this took so long was I kept dithering and adding things and then subtracting them and then adding more things...

1 panfandom; 4 Marvel (3 comics, 1 film); 5 Merlin; 4 Star Trek (1 AOS, 2 DS9, 1 general); 1 Stargate SG-1; 4 Stargate Atlantis; 3 Supernatural )

If any of my links don't work/go to the wrong place/etc., I am profoundly sorry and will fix it as soon as possible.

We're also supposed to drop a link to the authors informing them they've been recced, but I'm getting more than a little anxious just thinking about that, so I'm going to skip that step for now.

Also: if you enjoyed any of these fanworks and would like similar recs and/or more information about the canon, I'd be delighted to provide. (Well, in the case of the recs, I'd be delighted to provide if I can; some of them are going to be difficult or impossible to find similar ones.)

The Fandom Snowflake Challenge (for celebrating ourselves as members of fandom)

Day One: post a rec for at least three fanworks you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator.

I've mostly tried not to repeat myself from the year-end meme I did yesterday, but it was hard because most of the fics I've written were, um, written this year. But. Beyond this cut there be recs. )
nonisland: image of a pen with text "nonisland" (Default)
Here's last year's meme. (I am interested to note that I was wrong and the fic I thought was going to be the most under-appreciated [posted 30 Dec. or something like that] was...not.) Of my goals for this year, I actually met...most of them? All of them except the specific-story goals, actually.

2011, in review! )

And, stolen from [personal profile] argylepiratewd, the first sentences of all my fics longer than 100 words this year!

miscellaneous pairings. some of these sentences contain: language; sexual content; half-sibling incest (that one's got a few lines of space around it and a skip link for screenreaders) ) If you'd like me to tell you which fic any of those sentences came from and you don't feel like counting through the fics to figure it out, I'd be happy to do so.

length: ~3500 words
content notices: exhibitionism/dub-con voyeurism; light humiliation; explicit sexual content
summary: Nobody gets away with insulting Gwen while Morgana is around.
notes: written for the [livejournal.com profile] kinkme_merlin prompt “Gwen/Morgana/Vivian, Morgana is decidedly not pleased by Vivian’s cutting remarks about Gwen and decides to give Vivian a taste of just what she’s missing by not taking advantage of Gwen being temporarily assigned to her.” title is a line from Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” with the pronouns juggled around, because I appear to be physically incapable of giving Vivian fics serious titles.

Vivian is a princess. She deserves at the very least a nobleman’s daughter to wait on her, and she refuses to simply lie down and allow her hosts to insult her. )

  1. I profusely apologize to anyone trying to read my fics on LJ who's now inconvenienced by the new layout. I'd change it, but the only way I know of to alter the look of entries/comment pages is to have a plus or paid account (correct me if I'm wrong?), and at this point I am even more determined not to give them any money by allowing ad views or actually...giving them money...than I have been. My fics are and always have been crossposted to both DreamWidth and the Archive of Our Own, if either of those sites is more convenient for you.

  2. Also, I have a lot of DW invite codes, if anyone reading this wants one--not that it's really necessary, because DW has turned off needing a code to create an account until the end of the year (wondering if they're regretting the choice now...)

  3. I had been planning to try to finish and post at least one more [livejournal.com profile] kinkme_merlin fill before the end of the year, but if LJ doesn't FIX THE COMMENT PAGES that might not happen. I mean, wow. Wow. There is so much fail there, y'all. I was quite literally getting a headache trying to read the new comment pages, and the custom-style ones are...really not optimal.


In happier news, and without making any promises, if anyone reading this would like me to attempt to write them a holiday ficlet (let's say a New Year's gift, because I know myself and the odds of me getting anything done before the end of any of the other holidays around this time are less than good), feel free to comment with a prompt of some sort! ♥
