Fanfiction List  
Beneath the cut is a list of all of the fanfiction that I have posted in one of several places - sometimes more - on the 'net. Usually Dreamwidth (formerly on my LiveJournal), at my website, or over on the AO3's Archive of Our Own. I've linked to all three of those if a work is posted at all three, otherwise, only to the ones where it lives.

Fics listed beyond... )

Sue Grafton's Alphabet Mysteries...  
So, I recently finished all 25 novels in the Sue Grafton 'alphabet' series with Kinsey Millhone. I thought I'd write up some mini-reviews. Assuming I can remember enough about them all, I started the first one back at the end of December.

(I have now officially read something like 27 books in 2018.)

A to Y... there is no Z )

can i get an assist?  
I'm working on a thing and I need....

butt shots.

Celebrities would be best. And I have a few (Gatecon is good for this sort of thing... what? they're right THERE!), but I need more.

The clearer the shot of the butt, the better. Clothed is okay! I don't necessarily need nekkid butts.

Not picky at all with regard to size, shape, race, gender, etc etc etc... =)

I promise - I'll share what this is for when I'm done. XD

new fone - who dis?  
Same price, new phone, new carrier, plus a shitload of American Airlines miles! That's how you phone and go vacay at the same time.

Sprint has a deal where, if you're a new customer, and you get a new phone with them, you earn 20k AA miles, plus up to 5k additional miles each year just for being a customer. (And they'll buy out your old phone from your old carrier - restrictions, etc...) So, I did that. It also comes with a free subscription to Hulu - which is nice, even though it's the commercials-having version. So, doing that 'setting up the new phone' thing and all that. (tho it's kinda giving me a headache, but *shrug*)

In other news... I.... got an ARC of "Brief Cases" (Jim Butcher Dresden Files story collection) - and... I have no idea why. I mean, I guess I could've signed up for something somewhere or won something, but, holy buckets the shit show my life has been for the last several months means, fuck if I know. Either way - cool. I dunno if I'm supposed to do more than read it - it didn't come with any instructions. (and i thought the package was some other thing I'd ordered)

planning for Gatecon...  
So I'm working out my plan for Gatecon 2018 and I'm running into a couple of snags. I think I can wrangle up the funds for covering my portion of the hotel (\o/ tax refund). However, I'm slightly short on frequent flyer miles for nabbing my plane tix. =(

Anyone have roughly 7,000 American Airlines frequent flyer miles they're willing to part with and send in my direction?

I'd be willing to trade a bucketload of icons, some banner graphics, wallpapers, or fic, hell, I'll even bake cookies if that's your thing.

snowflake_challenge - Day 15  
Day 15

In your own space, write a love letter to Fandom in general, to a particular fandom, to a trope, a relationship, a character, or to your flist/circle/followers. Share your love and squee as loud as you want to.


Dear Fandom -

You're still a weird and fucked-up place, but that's actually mostly a good thing. Fandom is how you find new things get into and how you get other people into new things. It's also where you meet new people and make weird decisions to do things like travel to conventions and meet-ups and book-signings and stuff.

This would be longer and stuff, except that my brain is fried and focus is totally not a thing happening right now. But - anyway - Fandom, ttly fucked up and weird, but we like you that way.

Day 14

In your own space, create your own challenge. Whatever your challenge is, and have fun with it!


The last challenge I set up was dig out all of your action figures and toys and play with them and make stories with them and take photos n' such. Which is still a really great idea!

So, I'm gonna stick with that one. Play with your toys! XD

snowflake_challenge Day 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13  
Day 9

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that 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'll rec some things that don't get a lot of love b/c they're in smaller fandoms:

1) Trash Talking - it's a Rescue me fic I wrote for [community profile] fan_flashworks that I had fun doing. Tommy Gavin talking to his dead cousin Jimmy while he's trying to spy on his ex-wife.

2) Voices Down the Corridor - based on Eric Heisserer's The Dionaea House. It was a pain in the ass to format (and I had to do it twice for the two different posting locations), but fun to write.

3) Johnny's Dilemma - Emergency! fic written for a bingo card that sort of a took a turn I wasn't expecting.



Day 10
In your own space, share your love for a trope, cliché, kink, motif, or theme. (Or a few!) Tell us what makes it work for you, and why it appeals to you so much. Talk about what you like to see in fanworks featuring that theme most. Feel free to include recs and examples!


I'm bad at identifying these things - most of these - for some reason. So I find it hard to say 'I like X trope/cliché/theme/etc'. I just like really well-written stories that work. (Though, I do okay at id'ing the things I don't like, but not if it's a trope or a theme...)



Day 11

Share a book/song/movie/tv show/fanwork/etc that changed your life.


Erm - The Dresden Files, maybe? I mean if 'stalking the author' is a life change. I am 100% not serious about this - it's a joke, started by Jim Butcher when my friend and I showed up at several conventions w/in easy driving distance of our hometown at the time, in a sort of close timeline.


Day 12

In your own space, create a fanwork. Make a podfic, an icon, a sketch, a meta, or a rec list. Arts and crafts. Cross stitch. Draft an essay about a particular medium. Put together a picspam or a fanmix. Write a review of book you love, a ship manifesto, a you-should-be-listening-to-this-band essay. Create something.


I made several icons for [community profile] fandom_stocking recently. I'll link to those. =)

These

Wonder Woman
Highlander
House & Wilson
cartoon Jubilee from the X-Men
cartoon Magneto
Forever Knight
moar Wonder Woman
Suits wallpaper




Day 13:
In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private.


Goals, hmm? Well, I have my [community profile] inkingitout goal of 100k words for this year. I'll also be typing up my bigbang fic. And I'd like to get that monster Suits fic finished and something done with it at some point.

snowflake_challenge Day 6, 7 and 8  
I'm a smidge behind on these b/c I've been sick af and hating computer screens...


Day 6

Leave feedback for a fanwork. Or multiple fanworks. It can be as simple as I liked this to a detailed list of all the things you loved about the fanwork. The key is to leave some sort of feedback.


Did this.


Day 7:

In your own space, create a love meme for yourself. Let people tell you how amazing and awesome and loveable you really are.


Welp... love meme away...


Day 8

In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favorite interview, a book, a scene from a movie, etc) and explain why you love it so much.


Dead Beat by Jim Butcher, from The Dresden Files - Carlos Ramirez and Harry go stomping through Chicago on the back of a zombie T-Rex. What's not to love?

snowflake_challenge - Day 3, 4 and 5  
This cold I caught has been kicking my ass, so I'm a touch behind, so - a bunch grouped together.

Day 3

In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Rather than posting just 3 items, I'll direct you to go read/view anything in [community profile] fan_flashworks. There is some awesome stuff in there! (And if you decide to participate - even better!)


Day 4

In your own space, create a fannish wishlist. No limits on size or type of fanwork; just tell us what you’d like to see. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. And if you grant a wish, do the same thing!


My current fannish wishlist item is someone willing to beta/edit/help me straighten out a fic that's around 80k words and is a bit of a hot mess. It's a Suits AU, pretty dark, and it's been lingering with no progress (from either myself or my co-writer) for a couple years now. But, we wanna finish it and get it posted - once it's not a giant mess. :/


Day 5

Recommend a fannish or creative resource. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Most of my fannish resources are the source canon or fan wiki pages.

Fandom Snowflake - Days 1 & 2  
I was sick and fighting a fever yesterday, so I didn't get to this then, so - combo post.

Day 1

In your own space, talk about why you're participating in Snowflake and, if you’ve participated in the past, how the challenge has affected you. What drew you to it? What did you take away from it? What do you hope to accomplish this year? Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I've done this challenge the last 2 years and I think I answer this the same way each time - I participate to beef up my DW posting. It works for January, then I drop off a lot after that. I need to work on not falling off the map.

I like posting challenges - the semi-accountability seems to help make posting happen more.


Day 2

In your own space, share a favorite memory about fandom: the first time you got into fandom, the last time a fanwork touched your heart, crazy times with fellow fans (whether on-line or off-line), a lovely comment you’ve received or have left for someone. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I usually mention the 'pizza party in the floor' at a con w/ Jim Butcher here as a favorite, but I'll pick a different one this time. I think getting Richard Dean Anderson to say 'fuck' was pretty funny and, at the same con, when we were on the harbor cruise, and RDA was walking back to his table, stumbled a bit, and said he forgot we were moving (what with being on a boat and all).

Icon meme part deux  
Same rules as part une...

These chosen by [personal profile] sixbeforelunch




The good Colonel - the one with 2 L's - looking particularly grumpy. But, he's smiling on the inside, dontchaknow. I couldn't tell you which episode of SG-1 this is from. I'd wager s3+ given the grey hair. And who doesn't need a grumpy!Jack icon? XD



Made by [livejournal.com profile] lidi. Wind-blown hair on Tony Stark is a good look. I think I picked this one up from an icon comm somewhere when I was looking for Iron Man icons.



I made this one when I was role-playing Porthos for a hot minute in an RPG where he was the only Musketeer not represented in some form. It's the four main Musketeer characters from the Disney adaptation of the Dumas novel, well, their hands anyway, wielding their swords, crossed overhead.

Icon meme  
Reply to this post with "PORGS!" whatever phrase you like that indicates you want to play, and I will pick three of your icons for you to talk about in your own journal, and then keep the meme going by making this offer on your post.

These three were picked by [personal profile] calliopes_pen



Connor MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod. I made this one for a role-play journal many years ago. Connor still has an icon like this, but without the text.




Good ole Methos. If I recall late-season Highlander: The Series correctly, this is from "Indiscretions" where he's pointing a gun at someone who's been chasing him down and he tells them that he's not a 'hero' (contrasting w/ Duncan who supposedly is). I have no idea who made it - I wish I did so I could credit them for it, but I've had it for years. (Seriously - if you know who made, or if it was you, let me know and I'll add the credit!)




Made by [livejournal.com profile] ladyjesamyn. Puppet!Angel from "Smile Time". Isn't he cute? Angel was turned into a puppet through some *handwavey* magic and spent most of the episode fuzzy and cute with a removable nose.
