spatz: Steve holding his ribs below Chitauri blast wound (injured Cap)
So, [ profile] ardentintoxication suggested doing a DVD commentary for Learning Curve. I've always wanted to do one, and because the story is inspired by The Goat's Back universe and I clearly have a lot of feels, it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Then it got long. And then [personal profile] inmyriadbits wanted to play. And then it got a little longer. /o\

Also! If you are still here, you are clearly a fan of this 'verse, and should check out Double the Dose by [ profile] casspeach! Because more SES-verse is always a good idea, and it's got some lovely Clint and Steve and Natasha dialogue. :)

Back in April, I got a wee bit obsessed with The Goat's Back and its prequel and sequel. This puppy's not going to make much sense without at least the first story, and most of the sequel. So many thanks to [ profile] arsenicjade for creating the universe, inspiring me to write more, and letting me play in it. ♥

Learning Curve
team, gen; Steve/Natasha, explicit

Warnings )

Six times the team learned something about Steve, and one time they already knew. )

Yuletide! \o! Whoo, assignments! I finally posted my Yuletide letter, and I matched on something that I'm excited about, and I'm about to start doing canon review. Right now it feels like we have so long, though I'm sure the delusion will quickly fade.

Other fannish things:

1) A dude named Derek Wolf is STILL on backorder at the call center where I work. Poor Derek Hale, doomed to never catch a break. Maybe he should have used a better alias.

I am also constantly amused by things like:
-people who live in Waverly, IA
-massage clients who happen to be named Clint
-callers who are named Watson

2) Missed two anniversaries in October: my 9 year LJ-versary, and my 12 year fandom anniversary. Unlike many people, I can actually date it to a specific night: the premiere of Dark Angel on October 3, 2000. I wandered in on the last bit, involving two very pretty people smoking up the screen in leather and a wheelchair respectively, whilst wandering around a dystopian cityscape and kicking ass (all things I am still easy for, btw), and went online to track down a recap of the episode.

I found the recap, and screencaps, and transcripts, and then a forum, and started talking to people who had no idea I was 13 and therefore treated me as the adult I could write like, and then fanfic and friends and Firefly and LJ and the continuing adventures of everything.

Good times.

3) For my reference more than anything, the trope meme ficlets I wrote back in late September, one of which turned into a full story:
(Avengers) Clint/Coulson telepathy not!fic for [personal profile] ignipes
(B13) Damien/Leito secretly-a-virgin speculation for [ profile] inmyriadbits
(Avengers) All Elbows for [ profile] neery, Clint/Coulson 'forced to share a bed'

4) Pretty sure I've read all the Clint/Coulson fic at this point. Like, ALL of it. Even the bad stuff. I'm so desperate for decent fic that I've started re-reading my own stories, which is a course of action that can only end in tears, and I've started to lose perspective on what is good, which is making my writing stagnate. Time to step away for a bit. Or try, anyway.

Yuletide review: just the ticket!
spatz: caption "Keep Calm and Call Coulson", with SHIELD logo (keep calm)
Wow, two stories posted in just over a week. That's a record.

All Elbows
Written as [ profile] neery's trope meme response, for the prompt 'Clint/Coulson, forced to share a bed'. Thanks as always to [ profile] inmyriadbits for the beta.

Clint tossed his bag on the right side of the bed, and Coulson...twitched. There was really no other word for it. )

So a few months ago, [ profile] arsenicjade was wanting Clint h/c, and [personal profile] ignipes posted about Steve Rogers: Earth's Mightiest Cuddler, and then this happened. ...Obviously it took me a while to finish. Sorry, y'all! Thanks to [ profile] inmyriadbits for the beta and [ profile] ersatzemma for some research help.

Also, I finally managed to title something with Empires lyrics, yay! (....the silent struggles of my life, revealed.)

The Things Underneath Our Hearts
Warnings: mild onscreen violence, offscreen torture, vomit, graphic description of a dead animal, nightmares, and homophobic/sexually threatening language used by a bad guy.

Thanks for the multiple recommendations for Dropbox on my last post, ya'll! I just had to reinstall Windows last night (I think my harddrive is actually dying, but I'm hoping it's just the OS *fingers crossed*), so once I have all my files loaded back on tonight I'll take a swing at it.

In the meantime, I am bored at work (shocking!), so let's play:

Pick a trope from this list and provide a fandom/pairing/characters and I'll tell you something about the story I'd write for that combination (i.e. write a snippet from the story or write not!fic or tell you the title and summary for the story I would write).

1. genderswap
2. bodyswap
3. drunk!fic
4. huddling for warmth
5. pretending to be married
6. secretly a virgin Damien/Leito for inmyriadbits
7. amnesia
8. cross-dressing
9. forced to share a bed Clint/Coulson for neery
10. truth or dare
11. historical AU
12. presumed dead/fix-it
13. apocalypse fic
14. telepathy Clint/Coulson for ignipes
15. High School / College AU

(with a substitution for 12 because the idea of writing kidfic is just...I have no idea where I would even start! I literally cannot remember a single plotbunny I've had involving children, now that I think of it....)

habeas corpus
AU for the end of 28 Weeks Later, because there is no way Coulson would let the zombie apocalypse happen on his watch. Thanks to [ profile] inmyriadbits for the late night beta.

The last thing he remembers is fire. )

Apparently, I cannot resist Avengers kissing memes now. The party's mostly died down over at [personal profile] such_heights's journal, but I ended up posting three fills, which rather startled me.

Pepper/Tony, bubbly )

Natasha/Thor, friendship )

Rhodey/Tony, suits )
spatz: Clint and Natasha sitting shoulder to shoulder, looking at each other (spy BFFs)
This is a cleaned-up and slightly expanded version of a commentfic for [ profile] foxxcub's Avengers Kissing Meme. Before that, it was handwritten in my car and thus made me late to meet [ profile] katieupsidedown and [personal profile] drunkoffthestars. Sorry, ya'll! The title is a quote from the fake Zen tapes on Life.

See Yourself As Part of the World

gen, Clint & Natasha friendship, no spoilers for the movie

For some reason, it was always robots in Amsterdam. )

Notes: (on AO3) Many thanks to [ profile] inmyriadbits for assuring me this wasn't totally self-indulgent, to [personal profile] philomytha for the lightning-fast beta, and to [ profile] ignipes for the timely vocab assistance. They are not to be blamed for the title. Sorry y'all, I couldn't resist a pun that bad on this little sleep.

Getting ambushed at a McDonald’s in downtown New York was not the finest moment of Phil Coulson’s career. )
