Swear to god, I didn't think I was gonna be fannish about the new Star Wars movie, but I've already posted two stories, aided and abetted [personal profile] leupagus's 81K Poe Dameron backstory epic (which is amazing, you should all go read it, shh don't look at the pairing, just trust me on this), and have a bunch more in progress.

shock and awe
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
threesome, Rey/Finn/Poe, humor/crack

An alternate take on leupagus's Space Princess Poe story.

Star Wars: A New Hope + The Force Awakens
gen, written for the 'Strange New World' challenge at [community profile] starwarsflashmeme

Two planetary landings, two desert planet teenagers, and one Han Solo.

Apparently my inner 10-year-old -- who got hooked when the re-releases came out back in 1997 and read alllll the EU books before she learned about fandom and fic a few years later -- woke back up and feels like writing.

Whoops, I once again totally forgot to post my Yuletide story here!

Damien/Leïto, outsider POV
Jean stuck his head inside the station break room just as Luc was laying out his lunch. “The Captain is sparring with Leïto!” he said breathlessly, and ducked back into the hallway.
I love this fandom, so it was really fun to match on it finally and get to play with the sparring plotbunny I've had for ages, with an actual impetus to finish.

So I’ve been mildly obsessed since my second viewing of Mad Max with Toast’s hair. She’s the only one of the Wives with short hair, and it’s ragged as fuck, like she did it herself without a mirror, and possible with a butter knife or something.

And then I also got to wondering about why there were only three things written in the vault when Immortan Joe came in, and who wrote what.

And then I wrote a thing.

those were her words
Mad Max: Fury Road
gen, warnings for a brief description of past rape/noncon
The night before they leave, Angharad pulls out a tub of white paint, the kind the War Boys use on their skin.

"We don’t have to be silent anymore,” she says, pushing the tin into the middle of their circle.

So I completely failed to reveal what I wrote for Yuletide this year --

stumble to prevent a fall
written for [ profile] mskikiiv
gen, post-canon
2200 words

The first thing Dani says after Bodner pulls the car over is, “Crews, you're an idiot. What the hell were you thinking?”

--before posting a little something yesterday that I co-wrote with Lindsey:

see a church by daylight
Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries
co-written with [ profile] inmyriadbits
explicit, established relationship
2300 words

Perhaps Dot’s decision to ignore Phryne’s advice to elope had a bright side after all.

...possibly my next fic should NOT be titled in five lowercase words starting with the letter 'S'. Huh. And before that it was two six-word titles starting with 'T'! o_O

[personal profile] inmyriadbits and I wrote a little Miss Fisher trifle on Tumblr -- now on AO3 as slow as a wet week. Phryne/Jack flirting, naturally, and guest-starring Mr. Butler in all his butler glory.


In other recent accomplishments, I have wrestled my inbox down to a single page for the first time in like three months. This is doomed not to last, but the satisfaction right now is excellent.

Of course, a fair number of those emails are unanswered comments.... Sorry, ya'll. /o\

XMFC space assassin AU
I have a vague memory that this started as a dream, but then I wrote the opening scene and had nothing else.

In retrospect, it's very Erik-as-the-Winter-Soldier, but IN SPACE! :D )

Snow White & the Huntsman
Wow, I memory of writing this. Apparently I liked the movie enough to want to write fic, which must have lasted all of a week. Warnings for...overly poetic and euphemistic cunnilingus?

breathe )

SPN post-S5 coda
I think I wrote this scene of Dean unpacking his duffel bag at Lisa's right after the S5 finale, and then never a) posted it or b) watched the S6 premiere. So, you know, caveat lector. Prettty sure it's been jossed.

I literally just titled the draft 'coda'. Original of me. )
spatz: B&W Erik wearing helmet, most of his face concealed (XMFC Erik helmet)
As ever, I am late, but here, have 5000 words of an XMFC no-powers AU loosely based on Notorious that I am no longer invested enough in the fandom to finish. (also Yahtzee is posting her own take on that, so I don't have to!) I'd written all the fun bits, anyway. It's a darker take on the film, so warnings for blackmail, emotionally unhealthy but consensual hate!sex, mentions of child abuse, and violence.

c&p wholesale from the draft, so pardon the random timeline notes )
spatz: Brandt catching Ethan by his ankle, dangling from Burj Khalifa window (MI4 dive)
Wow, editing a big bang with two authors and only one laptop was an interesting experience. Good thing [ profile] inmyriadbits is my sister and we have a lot of practice not killing each other! :D

thrill as only we know how
co-written with [ profile] inmyriadbits
Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol
Ethan Hunt/William Brandt, team, guest appearances by numerous others
slash, PG-13
28,000+ words

After their meeting on the pier in Seattle, the team goes their separate ways. But Ghost Protocol left the IMF in turmoil, so Will, Ethan, Jane, and Benji team up to take on the Syndicate, a mysterious and widespread criminal organization. Will has to adjust to being a field agent again, and learn how to work with his team when the world isn’t on the line -- all while dealing with attack cheetahs, unexpected amnesia, train robbery, master thieves, and more.

Falling in love was not part of his scenario.

We also got TWO awesome pieces of art by [ profile] tarlanx, available here as both cover art and wallpapers! One is a drawing of Ethan and Will, and one is a manip from this set photo that Lindsey fell in love with, and Tarlan was super lovely to work with. Go forth and comment! ♥

Whew, I'm really proud of this and it is now the longest thing I've posted, but it's kind of a relief to be done. We've been playing with this story on and off since January 2012, and did a lot more geeky plotting of how various set pieces would work than actual writing until we decided to sign up for [ profile] smallfandombang. It more than doubled in length after that.

One of my clients has a daughter named Becky Barnes. It was so hard not to crack up, because seriously, what is my life?

Never mind, I have no life. Bucky feels have taken over.

I actually wrote this back in January, but somehow didn't post it when I wrote it, or when [personal profile] philomytha talked about RoL being a little black dress fandom, or even when [ profile] inmyriadbits started reading the series.

But AO3 hit 1 million fics today, so it seemed like time.

Because the last week of January is totally the right time for this, right?. *sigh* I feel like this month has completely slipped away from me. And not in a good way.

Yuletide reveals are up, yay! I wrote gimel for [ profile] donutsweeper, a quiet little Arrow team story about Oliver and Diggle crashing Felicity's Hanukkah celebration. Many, many thanks to [personal profile] inmyriadbits for the beta job of awesome, and to [ profile] arsenicjade for doing a last-minute Judaism-pick for me. ♥

I got three awesome stories this year, which was a new and delightful experience!!!

I also beta'd three fics this year, all of which were awesome.

So, confession: I stopped watching NCIS in S7, and have no idea if this got jossed or not. Since it looks like there's an episode called Baltimore, I'm guessing yes, but fuck it. Once upon a time, this snippet was part of a longer story about Gibbs and Callen from NCIS:LA, before I failed out of both shows. This was the only part I still like and I decided it could stand alone. Unbetaed.
