*cackles madly* I'd forgotten how much it fun it was to be actively writing in a fandom with ridiculous spy organizations, where Lindsey and I can legitimately brainstorm shit like 'attack cheetahs' and 'flirting with your rescuer whilst high on interrogation drugs' and 'our heroes steal part of a moving train' and 'the secret bad-guy base is at Disneyworld'.

Plus, we realized that all of Lindsey's most recent stories featured either detectives or spies or both. With The Man From UNCLE and the next Mission: Impossible movies coming out this summer, I anticipate this trend continuing. :)

Wow, editing a big bang with two authors and only one laptop was an interesting experience. Good thing [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com profile] smallfandombang. It more than doubled in length after that.

Just watched ALL of The Unusuals in one sitting with [livejournal.com profile] inmyriadbits. Actually, I'd already seen the first five, but um....Jeremy Renner's face? I have no excuses. And I've been a fan of Amber Tamblyn's for many years, so I was pretty confident I'd enjoy the show.

spoilers for the entire series )

In conclusion, very fun and short watch, with excellent Jeremy Renner and a strong ensemble, if somewhat wobbly on the writing. If you do watch, make sure to track down the 10th episode, which is on Hulu but NOT on Netflix.

I'm trying to be coherent enough to write, but mostly I'm just staring at all my WIPs in despair. Being super multifannish means I end up wandering out of fandoms and then need to reabsorb all the canon to write it again. Hrmph.

Therefore, time for a meme:

1. Go to page 77 (or 7) of your current ms.
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written.

None with 77, but several with 7 pages:

(MI:4) Ethan/Brandt fic I'm co-writing with inmyriadbits )

(XMFC) post-movie alien invasion )

(Inception) Arthur character study that I'm mostly writing because I love my title, not because it contributes anything interesting to his characterization )

(Inception/H50) Your Brain Must Be A Miserable Place - also cowriting with inmyriadbits; this snippet turned out very spoilery for the story, fyi )

(Star Trek reboot) shuttle AU - boring exposition bit )

(XMFC) Notorious AU - one of the few bits of dialogue I stole straight from the movie )

Today was a day where my shoes did not match.

Yes, I mean that literally. )

In my defense, I woke up 5 minutes before I had to leave for work, but yeah. I didn't even notice until the end of my lunch. *facepalm*

Time for the WIP meme! (gacked from [personal profile] philomytha)

Post a random sentence (or three whole paragraphs) from every WIP you're currently working on, even if it's very short. Then invite people to ask questions about your WIP. With any luck, you'll get talking about writing, and the motivation to take that WIP one step closer to completion will appear as if by magic!

I picked the five I've actually worked on in the past two weeks, since the full list is a bit longer.

the long MI4 Ethan-Brandt fic I'm co-writing with imyriadbits. (I was so tempted to post the bit with the cheetahs, but that one's hers.) )

the XMFC Notorious AU, in which no one is a mutant, everyone is fucked up, and I worry about my ability to adequately write hatesex )

the Star Trek reboot AU where Winona's shuttle got captured by Nero, which has been a WIP since fall 2009 )

the plotty XMFC one where aliens invade one year post-divorce. This is from the scene where Erik runs into Peggy Carter fighting aliens in NYC. )
