100indecisions: my chains are broken (alice | so beautiful when the boy smiles)
You know, for Yuletide? And so far the only person who's commented is still the recipient? Even though a couple other people gave it kudos and it's somehow had 100+ hits? And I said I was going to write more and then I did because it's what I was working on for my "okay, my New Year's resolution is that I'll work on some fiction that I actually enjoy, at least in theory, for 10 minutes a day"?

Today I finally finished typing it all up and posted the additions, which ended up being two additional chapters on AO3 (and ff.net, when I cross-posted there) or 6,000+ words. That's a lot of writing, you guys. Especially considering it's been ages since I've, you know, actually finished something, let alone finished something that attempted to have a plot. (Funny thing--I think this is the longest fic I've actually finished, and it's...for a fandom I've never written before.) Cross-posting at [livejournal.com profile] theturningworld also took approximately forever, mostly because those also had to be in multiple parts.

OKAY LOOK WHAT I AM SAYING IS this fic took a long time (well, a lot of actual writing-time--as "total time from beginning to end on a fic" goes, this was...probably one of my shortest? Even though it has the longest word count? That's...embarrassing) and I put a decent amount of work/effort into it and, you know, Baldur's Gate has a very active modding community but not much in the way of an active fandom that I can tell--there are four whole communities for it here on LJ, two of which are Russian and one of which hasn't had a post since 2004 (the remaining one was Feb. 2010), and there are probably other places I can post it but I'm not totally sure where yet since I've never done a fic for a game fandom before...so basically it's not really being read or at the very least pretty much no one's commenting. Which is sad.

So...it would be really really nice if some of you guys could check it out? Obviously it helps if you've played either of the games, because I do use a lot of characters, items, and places from canon, but honestly you'll be pretty good with just what you can learn from Wikipedia about the first game or even just basic knowledge of how adventuring-party fantasy-RPG works. Or just take it as straight fantasy, for that matter, most of the canon stuff I refer to is fairly self-explanatory in context. Probably. There are girls being awesome! And angst! And sisterly family-that-you-make cuteness! And okay, I'm finding a number of communities that would probably be okay for cross-posting so I'll maybe get just a few more comments, but...BUT STILL. I WANT YOU GUYS TO READ THE STUFF I WRITE. PRETTY PLEASE? YOU CAN READ IT ON AO3 OR [livejournal.com profile] theturningworld OR FF.NET, WHICHEVER YOU LIKE BEST. Okay I am turning off the capslock now.

Only one, despite intentions of writing treats and/or participating in Yuletide Madness. Well--I had to get class work and grading done first, and then there wasn't a lot of time left, so...NYR, maybe. Or next year. And it was my first Yuletide, after all.

In any case, I wrote the Baldur's Gate fic "what we have is enough" for [livejournal.com profile] blueinkedpalm; I intended to go further with established canon so Skie could deal with her father's death but didn't quite have time to do that, so at this point I'm still planning to add a second chapter or something to the same effect. I probably won't repost it at [livejournal.com profile] theturningworld or ff.net until I've done that, although it shouldn't take me too long.

My assignment had three different fandoms, naturally, but Baldur's Gate was the only one with which I had any familiarity...and that only from having finished Shadows of Amn and most of Throne of Bhaal, so I may have panicked a little when I saw that [livejournal.com profile] blueinkedpalm preferred a story set in the first game, focusing on characters I hadn't actually met. Of course, if you've followed my witterings on Twitter about this game in general, you know that this was really a good thing since I suddenly had a fairly legitimate excuse to spend even more time playing BGI than I might have otherwise. Getting enough of a handle on Skie, Eldoth, and Dynaheir to write them was a little tricky since I hadn't played them before and, thanks to the nature of the first Baldur's Gate game, it's hard to get a feel for most of the NPCs as three-dimensional characters. (The mods I used helped a lot, of course--without that there wouldn't have been much of...anything.)

I ended up playing out a number of different scenarios with Skie and Eldoth to see how they'd react in different circumstances, and the fic I ended up writing certainly wasn't perfect, but I'm fairly satisfied with it. (I'll be more satisfied once I extend it, but I think it's decent as is.) It won't make as much sense if you aren't familiar with the Baldur's Gate universe, obviously, but it should still be readable as long as you know that it's a fairly basic fantasy-adventure RPG game, and you have a party and you go around killing things and gradually getting richer. More or less. It may also be worth noting that 1) Minsc is my FAVORITE but I'm not sure how to write him exactly, and the exchange described actually came from some dialogue in the modded game, and 2) the scene where Imoen shoots Skie with an Arrow of Dispelling was the first one I thought of. Actually I wanted to write that even before I had any idea what else I'd be doing, because...I don't know, I just really liked that situation.

I've also been meaning to do a reccs post and had some copied in from my bookmarks, I just...haven't had time to write about why, exactly, said fics are awesome? Also I still haven't read anywhere near as my Yuletide fics as I mean to, so my reccs would pretty much be "hey, here's everything I actually read and bookmarked". So that'll happen...later, I guess.

YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO READ. AND COMMENT. For some reason I've only gotten a small handful of comments on this even though I've crossposted it all over the place, which I find really weird--is the Harry Potter fandom not quite as active anymore, or something? Because I got more responses to my Doctor Who and DW/HP crossover fics, and I'd have thought crossovers would have a more narrow audience...but, you know. Whatever.

Anyway yeah, all comments are ♥ -- I always love to hear what does and doesn't work about my writing, since that kind of feedback can really help me improve and...things.
100indecisions: my chains are broken (ethereal | my memory will not fail me)
Or: duh, I should be asking for help here too, after having cross-posted this to several writing comms.

Subject: A good part-physical, part-mystical/metaphysical/whatever cure for lycanthropy (the actual turning-into-a-monster-once-a-month thing, not the medical delusion) that somehow works with the overall plot and themes of my werewolf story
Setting: Modern world, as far as I know; might be in Alaska, where I live, or somewhere similar, at least to the extent that wolves should be around in the wild and it would make sense for the family in question to have a semi-remote cabin in the mountains for camping and stuff. I guess it isn't quite our world in that the existence of werewolves is slightly more accepted, maybe the way the existence of ghosts is kind-of-not-really accepted today.
Previous searches: I have been researching this a lot, because I wanted my character to be able to sift through all the folkloric cures and not find anything that works, and then because this actually turned into my undergrad thesis: part werewolf story, part academic look at folklore and pop culture about lycanthropy. Running water, silver knife, kneeling in one spot for a hundred years, removing the skin/belt that caused the transformation in the first place--none of those are really going to work. Mostly I suppose I need new ideas. The other thing I need is a compelling reason by the werewolf in question wouldn't try to get medical help for his condition.

Cut for rambling )

"...the thing about remembering is that you don't forget. You take your material where you find it, which is in your life, at the intersection of past and present. The memory-traffic feeds into a rotary up in your head, where it goes in circles for a while, then pretty soon imagination flows in and the traffic merges and shoots off down a thousand different streets. As a writer, all you can do is pick a street and go for the ride, putting things down as they come at you. That's the real obsession. All those stories." -Tim O'Brien, "Spin," The Things They Carried

"Forty-three years old, and the war occurred half a lifetime ago, and yet the remembering makes it now. And sometimes remembering will lead to a story, which makes it forever. That's what stories are for. Stories are for joining the past to the future. Stories are for those late hours in the night when you can't remember how you got from where you were to where you are. Stories are for eternity, when memory is erased, when there is nothing to remember except the story." -Tim O'Brien, "Spin"

"That wasn't enough, and the small voice in my confused head said, 'Don't settle for less. Find what you love and do it.'

"Pen and paper: That's what I loved. You make little marks on paper, and if you make enough of them, you have a story, and isn't that pure magic? The small voice told me that's what I was put on Earth for, and that is what I should do." -Frank McCourt

This would be a fic I finally finished a few days ago and typed up yesterday--for the first [livejournal.com profile] nest_of_spiders prompt. Yes. It was a busy semester, what can I say? (Also, my title is lame.)

Title: The Morning After
Characters: Remus, James, Sirius, a bit of Peter; mentions Snape
Rating: G
Word count: 696
Disclaimer: All the usual ones. The bits about werewolf laws are, by and large, pulled out of my nether regions.
Summary: There are pranks, and then there are pranks. Sometimes, though, the joke goes too far.
Prompt: Day 1 (shut up): A joke's a very serious thing.
A/N: Not Sirius/Remus. Took a different direction with the prompt than the quote was going, I think, but that's how the plotbunny bites.

100indecisions: my chains are broken (Ravenclaw grammar Nazi)
Okay, so basically I'm the Most Horrible Person in the Universe, Ever, and would you like to know why? Well, I will tell you: last August (the 23rd, I believe), [livejournal.com profile] ressie_noldo had a birthday. And in advance of said birthday, she requested birthdayfic of Sirius Black in a trenchcoat. I started working on it the week before her birthday. I really, truly did.

And then, uh...well, first of all, it got long. I figured it would be short (because there was no plot. It was young!Sirius. In a black trenchcoat. Who needs plot?) and then it kept going and going, mostly because I didn't just sit myself down and write it in one sitting like I planned to, and then the fall semester started, and it was Bad, and I kept working on it even more slowly, and then Christmas break started, and it was also Bad, although I did manage to use some of my breaks at work to type it up and that. According to an old entry, I actually finished the thing around Dec. 22, 2006. And I wrote an oddball summary of it in my 2006 fanfic review even though I still wasn't ready to post it.

So, um...it's totally taken me this long to finish editing it. Mostly because I wasn't, you know, actively working on such an awful lot. I did do some of that during Christmas break, and then it just sort of...didn't happen...and on my little trip to Indianapolis I finally printed it out and made notes all over it on the airplane flight home (after doing homework. Yes, I did homework on the plane. It wasn't fun. Accomplished a lot, though.), and it still took me until yesterday to put in all those edits and then today to post it. Because I am just that awesome.

Anyway...yeeeah. Is it slightly problematic that as soon as I started thinking about this fic (over six months ago, shut up), I immediately started picturing Sirius in a black trenchcoat, and that said black trenchcoat made me temporarily picture him like Amon from Witch Hunter Robin? Because he's pretty fangirl-bait, and he also has longish black hair and a black trenchcoat. Except he broods a lot more than Sirius does. (You can see Amon's coat better in this picture or this one.) Other disclaimers: most of the Muggle-obsession bits were inspired by either [livejournal.com profile] ressie_noldo or [livejournal.com profile] faeriemaiden , so I'm afraid I can't take much credit for most of those; I don't think I wrote Walburga well at all; I thought this would be strictly funny but should have known better, considering my tastes, so yes, it goes pretty quickly into angst; I think my ending is kind of lame; no, I really couldn't help getting in a dig at Sirius/Remus; this is my first James-centric fic, which is weird because I've written Sirius and Remus before but never James, but the plotbunny just wanted James this time; and my treatment of Peter is making me feel like a Suethor. But it's not my fault, I swear--for one, I'm not good at writing more than a few people in a scene, and I don't feel I know Peter's personality well enough to write him properly, and when I first started thinking about it, I was picturing all of this with only Sirius, Remus, and James, and by the time I realized I'd left Peter out, it was just going to be too hard to shoehorn him back in when there wasn't really anything for him to do. So I had to shoehorn in an explanation for his absence instead.

Yeah, so. Hope you still like, Noldo, especially after the long wait and all my rambling here. >_<
According to Sirius—although James wasn’t entirely certain he believed him—the trenchcoat was the final straw. )
100indecisions: my chains are broken (Default)
Yeah, I guess it probably would be good to explain a little more about the last entry, hm? ^-^

For those who don't know--and if I wasn't on your flist about a year ago, you probably won't--Understory is a magazine produced by grad students in the UAA creative writing department, open for submissions from all UAA undergrads. You don't get paid for having your work accepted, but two contests--one for all the writing, one for all the visual art--are run through the magazine. Last year I had a poem and several photographs published, and one of my photos was on the cover, mostly because I was...the only person who submitted any visual art. >_< So I won the visual art award. I'm guessing I'm not the only one this time, or I'd have won that again, I suppose. Still, it's fun, and it's another clip--and I've three poems going in instead of one.

So, yes, the actual poems and photographs. The photographs chosen were A Hundred Indecisions, Between the Motion and the Act, and Last Night Lonely. I'm a little disappointed The Wise and the Lovely didn't make it in, because for some reason I really like it, and a little surprised they chose "Between the Motion and the Act" over For Thine Is the Kingdom, which I think looks better than the other, but whatever. "A Hundred Indecisions" and "Last Night Lonely" are personal favorites too--especially since the former took a lot of time and guesswork in the darkroom, and the latter was basically a fluke--so it's all good.

As for the poems, I've posted them all here--quite a while ago--but I niggled with them again, as usual, before I sent them out, so they're all a tiny bit different in places.

100indecisions: my chains are broken (plotbunny)
I had to watch Smallville last night because it was a new episode and Kelsey always has to watch it whether it's new or not, and I think it's the first one I've seen since before Christmas--before inundating myself with Doctor Who fanfic (speaking of which--tell me when you've got enough canon to read Whofic, [livejournal.com profile] faeriemaiden, because I have lots to rec) and season 1, more importantly. And I kept making comments (well, I always do; Smallville is a joy to snark at because all the characters, with the exception of Chloe, are so stupid) of different kinds, but this time they mostly centered on one theme: "This would be SO MUCH BETTER with the Doctor. Pop him in here and he'd have everything sorted within a few hours."

Which is true, so it's excusable. What's not so excusable is this:

At some point between yesterday evening and right now, a plotbunny snuck up on me. And oh, it was subtle--just started off as aimless daydreaming and fantasizing. I didn't recognize it as a plotbunny until it was too late.

By now, I am seriously contemplating writing a Doctor Who/Smallville crossover (pre-Doomsday, mostly; don't know when it would occur in Smallville canon), almost entirely for the single purpose of making Clark Kent look like the idiot he is (and letting the Doctor make a crack about his lack of superintelligence to go along with his other powers). Although, because this is me, it would not be all snark--I'm not sure I'm capable of writing pure snark--because there will be angst, too, primarily because Clark can't really return to his homeworld either, even if the cases are different, and because...well, the "ghosts" did show up everywhere, in the end. Even Smallville.

Don't get me wrong here. I'm not talking about Clark!angst. I don't think I could bear it, especially since canon Clark!angst usually involves Lana Lang, and I hate her. It's more like...implied Ten!angst and Rose!angst because...well, you know. I have to.

In equally cracktastic (but more serious, plausible, and--sadly--obscure) crossovers, I really want to drop the TARDIS on Three Zed and see how Ten (or maybe Nine; haven't decided that, I guess) mixes with Shuhr. Unfortunately, 1) almost nobody would understand it, and 2) I have no idea how they would mix. The Doctor seems to be the only telepath (not a particularly strong one at that, as I understand it) in that canon.

ETA: This could, by some chance, be partly because I finally watched the 2005 Children in Need special, which just reconfirmed that Ten is the most adorkable thing in this universe. Possibly more than one universe. I'm just afraid I can't do him justice--I've never really tried to write him, and considering what a character he is, making sure he's IC would be difficult but crucial.

Also known as "the vampire is even more pathetic than she thought previously." 'Cause...I haven't produced a lot this year. Not recently, anyway. And I suppose I might as well include stuff that isn't fanfic, too, just to make me look a little less pathetic. All sorted by posting date, because that's when I finished editing them and that. Word counts are what ff.net tells me, although some of those are my (rather long, at times) author's notes.

Cut, because this went longer than I expected )

100indecisions: my chains are broken (Doctor OMG)
Spoilers for the season finale of Doctor Who, just by the way. Be ye warned. )

In other, less spoilery news, I'm babysitting somebody's fish for a couple weeks. This is the first fish I've had since South Dakota, which was...thirteen years ago? And Kelsey's and mine both died. >_< So I'm really paranoid this one's going to die while I have it.

Also, we saw The Nativity Story Tuesday night. It was good--I didn't like how it distorted the timeline, of course: lots of people don't know that the Magi didn't show up until Jesus was about two, so that was bad enough, but...okay, Herod did not kill all the kids the night Jesus was born. And Mary's voiceover showing up so far in was way abrupt and awkward...and Mary's bad relationship with her parents was odd...well, and the whole fact that her first voiceover was along the lines of "Why do they force me to marry a man I don't love?" sounded pretty anachronistic to me. I've gotten the idea that back then, girls wouldn't even have thought of it in those terms--arranged marriages would have been the rule, not the exception. I did enjoy some of the friendly bickering between the Magi, and the movie did give me a couple geek-squee moments--the scene at Masada, and the little conversation between Mary and her mother that went something like "There is still hope." "Even in Nazareth?" Because, yeah, Nazareth was totally out in the sticks, and the Roman soldiers (oh yeah, and their eagle gave me a bit of a geek-squee moment too) don't want to be stuck out there any more than you do. And the cinematography was pretty, and like the reviews have said, it's very good at humanizing an extremely familiar story. I loved Joseph in particular--he was just a really good man.

And, um, I really want to see it again, because um...I want to recap it. Badly. You know, kind of like [livejournal.com profile] cleolinda does. 'Cause--I don't know what it was, because I honestly did like the movie, but my brain kept producing really, really snarky commentary. I even thought, just a few minutes after it started, that I wanted to recap it and should start taking notes, but I just couldn't be bothered to pull out my notebook. >_< So hopefully either themoviespoiler.com or Wikipedia gets a very good synopsis, or I can see it again and take notes.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] ressie_noldo, I am finally done with your birthday fic. I think. Yes, it has really taken me this long...and I still don't like the ending I hashed together at, um, almost 1 a.m. last night (I slept until 11:15 today. It was glorious), even though it was what I had in mind for ages. And didn't even like when I first thought of it. So yeah--it needs typing and editing and stuff.
100indecisions: my chains are broken (plotbunny)
"This" being, um, having written a fic. But not just any fic, no--a Dr. Who fic. Why is this so out of the ordinary as to warrant italics, you may ask? Well, seeing as my entire knowledge of canon comes from 1) absorbing stuff from [livejournal.com profile] avendya, [livejournal.com profile] ressie_noldo, and a little bit [livejournal.com profile] honorh (and then, realizing later that I have exposed myself to spoilers, going back and re-reading some of said spoilers, and getting depressed about Rose's fate or lack thereof), 2) reading synposes of all the Nine episodes (and the two or three Ten ones I missed) on Outpost Gallifrey, and 3) watching three whole episodes of Ten...the fact that I actually had the gall to write fic already is...

Well, yeah.

And it doesn't help that having never read any Dr. Who fic except Noldo's Ad Infinitum, I have no idea what kinds of things are and aren't written in the fandom, but I'm guessing from the subject matter of my fic that it's the sort of thing everybody and and their mom has already done. That, or something or other has canon'd me and I don't know enough about canon to know it. (I mean, I don't do these things, really. I look up everything on the Lexicon when I'm writing HP fic.)

But, you know, I was just so grateful to get a ficlet plotbunny that let me write it all in one sitting, more or less, that I couldn't stop myself.

Oh yeah, and it doesn't have a title, either.

He thinks, this is the hardest time. )

100indecisions: my chains are broken (writer)
I mentioned this to [livejournal.com profile] faeriemaiden a couple days ago and figured I might as well post it here. It's part of a fic I attempted to write--RT, of course--based on the idea that Remus has read lots of Muggle authors and is a particular fan of Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. I just love that, but the problem with this is that it refers to a quote in Lewis's Out of the Silent Planet that isn't helpful and doesn't actually exist, and anyway the idea of unbodying in there really has nothing whatsoever to do with werewolf transformations, literally or figuratively (though I may be able to manage the latter). Plus I'm not sure I like the way I have Tonks acting here, and the bit about the other Marauders falls flat, I think.

Anyway...I don't know when this is supposed to happen, but Remus is resting in bed here, the morning after a full moon.

“What does it feel like?” she asks. “The transformations?” )

So basically I've got a cute little bit of RT fluff and nowhere to go with it. Bother.
100indecisions: my chains are broken (tuesday_skyline)
...though not as desperate as when I posted it on my Xanga. But still.

I am finally going to do the drabble meme that [livejournal.com profile] faequeene and [livejournal.com profile] faeriemaiden and I don't know who else did, because I always do what everyone else does, except it takes me yonks longer to jump on the bandwagon than it does everyone else. :p

What does that mean? It means anyone who comments on this entry, or one of my other recent entries, gets to request a drabble from me. That's a short fic of 100 words, if you don't know. I will try to discipline myself to actually 100 words. Maybe. Can be any fandom you think I'm familiar with, and you can be as specific as you like about the characters and/or situations involved (you can leave poetry or song fragments and tell me to build off them, too), though I'm most likely to manage something in Harry Potter or Tolkien (other reasonably good ones are Narnia, Firebird, Legends of the Guardian-King, Lost, and Star Wars).

And no, if you are on both Xanga and LJ, that does not mean you get to request two drabbles. :p

Yeah. And now I really need to get going.
100indecisions: my chains are broken (mae)
I don't really know what I think of this story.

The plotbunny for it bit me ages ago, and it took me close to forever--probably a couple months--to write it, because most of the time I was only writing a couple sentences a night...very bad way to write something that's intended to be short, because then it comes out all choppy and incoherent, and all those great lines you had originally and all the ways you knew it was going to make sense just dribble away, until you're left with something you're sure isn't as good as it should be, but you don't know how to fix it. The date on the file is February, but I'm not sure when I actually finished writing it. Just finished typing it up today, though.

Well, and reading Shifts between finishing this fic and typing most of it up didn't help either. Now I have to wonder whether it's just bad, period, or if it's only bad in comparison to Shifts (and there is a huge difference there).

Either way, here it is in all its (mostly unedited, and completely untitled) glory. Or lack thereof.

But Remus knows the truth now, and so he wonders different things. They are not pleasant either. )

Any help on this would be wonderful. Titles, too, assuming I don't decide to scrap it completely (which would be sad, since it's five pages on Word, and that's a long fic for me).
100indecisions: my chains are broken (plotbunny)
So I had two plotbunnies last night, and I think they were both...classic badfic, or things that would get me detainment at HFA, or something. And I don't want to let them go.

Plotbunny number 1: a vampire attends Hogwarts. No, really. She was bitten shortly before she got her letter, and her parents arranged for her to go to Hogwarts anyway, making various precautions with Dumbledore--a la Remus going to Hogwarts and all--so she wouldn't endanger herself (sunlight, not getting enough blood) or other students (y'know, the whole "attacking people and sucking their blood" thing could put a damper on the learning environment they're trying to foster).

Plotbunny number 2: a Harry Potter/Lord of the Rings crossover AU thing. Again: no, really. At some point shortly after HBP, Harry and Frodo switch bodies, sort of (which I totally haven't explained, but I did only think of this last night), only they're sort of...mixed up with each other, mentally and physically. Harry, in ME, has a vague idea of what Frodo's been doing his entire life, and Frodo, in Hogwarts, has a vague idea of Harry's life, but not at first, and it probably starts to come to them in dreams. Physically, Harry still has his scar, hair, eyes, etc., but he probably also gets some hobbit features, like the feet or something. Frodo maybe hits four feet, finally. As for language barriers, because of the switch, Harry can think in English and speak in Westron if he doesn't think about it too hard, but if he does think about it, it comes out in English and nobody else can understand him. Latin-based spells come out as Quenya; more rarely, Greek-based ones come out as Sindarin. Same for Frodo, except the other way around. This is all twisted up with Horcruxes, and the Ring essentially being one, which Harry now has to destroy, and some Horcrux back at home that Frodo has to help destroy, and something similar happening between Sauron and Voldemort too, and...oh, it's a mess. But it would be SO MUCH FUN.

I think I should probably be dragged out somewhere and shot. I'm flirting with some of the Unpardonable Sins of Fanfiction. And I want to do them ANYWAY.

*goes to bed*
100indecisions: my chains are broken (badfic evil smirk)
Well, I had some concerns about Daemin and posted about them--vaguely--on Deleterius, and then at [livejournal.com profile] redcoast's suggestion I reposted it (and added some background info) on [livejournal.com profile] oc_analysis. One helpful person gave me a link to a very good Mary Sue test that isn't fandom-specific at all--in fact in can be used for either fanfiction or original fiction (though really, what with the high Sue points gained from being related to/sleeping with canon characters, fandom-specific tests are probably best for fanfic Sues).

Naturally, I ran Daemin through it )
100indecisions: my chains are broken (eliot fading star)
*headdesk* So I tried to post this on [livejournal.com profile] oc_analysis and LJ wigged out on me, with the end result that I posted it here and wondered why no one was responding. Yeah, it's over there now.
