... so I'm actually making a post to say...

Dear Yuletide Author, )
dizmo: (comics: shortpacked bat squeee)
First thing's first, as it's reveal day and all...

Massive thanks to [archiveofourown.org profile] floraheart for my exceptionally fabulous Yuletide fic, and to [archiveofourown.org profile] who_la_hoop, [archiveofourown.org profile] laura47, and [archiveofourown.org profile] McTabby for my delightful madness ficlets! All of them are linked here for anyone who missed them.

Moving on. This is probably the first year ever that I actually wrote enough to really justify an end-of-year fic meme. So, shamelessly stolen from [personal profile] shadowen, here we go!

Starting with the objective stats...
Total stories: 14.25 (2012 saw chapter one in a four chapter WIP, but not chapters 2-4.)
Total word count: 21,954
Average word count per story: 1,541
Average word count per month: 1,830
Longest story: Lifeline: 5,130 words
Shortest story: Last to Know: 237 words
Fandoms: 2 (Thank you, yuletide.)
Pairings: 2 (I was rescued solely by having backup Tony/Steve in one of them. Because, y'know, C/C.)

On to the much more subjective questions )
dizmo: (dw: wheeee ahhhhhh)
Amazing Yuletide fic and then three Madness treats? Yes please.

Anyway, starting off with my main gift fic:

Solar System (Anthropomorphic) )

And then on to my three (yes, three!) Madness treats:

Three fics, in AO3 Tags/Fandom Meta, Solar System (Anthropomorphic), and Robin Hood (Disney 1973) )

Dear Yuletide Writer!

Yay, you want to write for me! )
dizmo: Comic sound effect-like 'NERD!' (misc: nerd!)
First of all...


NerdTests.com says I'm a Cool Nerd Queen.  Click here to take the Nerd Test, get geeky images and jokes, and write on the nerd forum!


I am a bit shocked that there is any way shape or form that I could be considered 'cool', but I'll take it.

Anyway, as of late I've been sucked into the joy and amazing that is feelschat. ... Er, an AIM blast group of Clint/Coulson fans, and oh my God, talk about full of fun and bouncy and mutual fangirling and the occasional okay frequent sometimes large buckets of angst, and everything is beautiful and somehow sometimes everything hurts at the same time. But I'm rambling.

It's done wonders for my fic productivity, although I don't know if the couple little ficlets I did just to share with chat will ever reach wider distribution. That remains to be seen. First, I work on the thing I've been poking at for ages. One step at a time.

Last night, I spent a hefty chunk of time going through my really ancient LJ entries... like, from my very first journal and everything, and wow... 'Was I ever that young?' comes to mind. XD

In other news... Well, there really isn't much in the way of other news. BUT HELLO ANYONE WHO'S READING THIS, YOU ROCK. :D

First of all... yaaay, happy new year!

Next... What a fun yuletide that was! Now that the dust has settled, and reveals have happened, it's time for a post!

First thing's first. Ridiculous amounts of thanks go to [archiveofourown.org profile] baniszew for Rest In Whirled Peace. Again. How can I reiterate how awesome it is to read about superheroic ice cream flavors? All of the awesome, and that's that! Cannot say how thrilled I was.

As far as my own output goes, I ended up writing four fics. My assignment, a pinch hit, and two small treats.

First up, my full lengths:

Appointments, written for [archiveofourown.org profile] ferdelance. Discworld. A morning in Vetinari's office. Footnotes a-plenty. Fun to write, most certainly. Even if I stressed out a couple times in the writing all Oh God why did I say I could write Vetinari what was I thinking?!

The Calm Before, written for [archiveofourown.org profile] brandnewsoul. Captain America: The First Avenger. It's an interlude between Steve and Peggy on the morning before that last raid on HYDRA hq. Sweet and bittersweet at the same time, and I'm glad I had a chance to write it.

And then, my madness treats, both quite short:

First Try, written for [archiveofourown.org profile] kissoffools. Captain America: The First Avenger. Steve's reaction to his first 4F. I just love capturing those missing moments we don't see in canon, and I'm pretty fond of this little ficlet.

Strong Suit, written for [archiveofourown.org profile] JaneTurenne. The Avengers (2012). Yes. It's a ficlet written from the POV of one of Agent Coulson's suits. Because this is how I roll. The end. :)

I swear, December 2011 was one of, if not the most productive month I've ever had as far as fic goes. Makes me feel a wee bit accomplished and I kind of hope I can keep up... well, if not writing so prolifically, at least writing regularly during '12. Well, time will tell!

Yeeeeah, I'm definitely going back to crossposting to my LJ from DW consistently... on those occasions I post, which is rare, but I'd like it to be less so. There's a new year's resolution for you. A good chunk of my LJ-flist is doing the same, for reasons that probably don't need rehashing.

Anyway, anyone who's made the DW jump, feel free to circle me up however you'd like. Same username from LJ.

Right! Anyway! As for content! First thing's first! Yuletide!

It's always fun when the fic you receive is in the canon you requested that really, nobody needs any crazy canon knowledge in order to appreciate.

That being said... A bajillion thanks to my author, who wrote me Rest In Whirled Peace. It's Ben & Jerry's anthropomorfic and they're ice cream superheroes. I mean, come on, how can you not want to read that?

After I finished reading that... a couple times... I proceeded to show just how obsessed I was and read absolutely every fic with one Agent Phil Coulson of SHIELD in the Yuletide archive. (And then I did it again the next day with Madness.) And believe me, they're all delightful, whether or not my favorite NINJA BAMF IN A SUIT is a main character or not, so please, by all means, read them and enjoy if you remotely care.

There are, of course, numerous other fics that bear reading, but I really really suck at rec lists, and most of them have been covered in other places if you're looking for recs, so far be it from me to tread on old ground.

And now, changing trajectory slightly...

Sheer morbid curiosity had me do something in a fit of temporary what-was-I-thinking-ness last night. And I happened to actually find something hiding in the mists of the internet that I thought didn't exist anymore. That being what I'm pretty sure is my oldest surviving piece of (published) fanfic. It's X-Files, it was written when I was nineteen or so... give or take a year (we're talking so old I found it on an angelfire archive). The prose is ever so slightly purple. (Ahah. Yeah. Ever so slightly.) And I kinda wanna facepalm at my younger self for the thing, if not so badly as some of the ridiculous Mary Sues I safely paper-journaled about a few years before that. And I have a conundrum. Should I post it to the AO3, with a roughly appropriate backdate? I mean, for the interests of completeness, and to see how far I've come... but, again, facepalm. But I wouldn't want to orphan it either.

Hm. Maybe with appropriate tags to let someone know what they'd be getting into.

I'll contemplate further!

And in a brief interlude covering RL... Still sadly jobless... although it being my first Christmas season out of retail since, like, '03 or so? Let's just say it was a bit surreal being home on Black Friday.

But Christmas was marvelous. Got a Kindle Fire from Andrew and it is a ridiculously fun gadget. I'll definitely be using it as a tablet more than an ereader, though. (I've got my nook for that... Had a Sony Reader, but I broke it, oops, thank God for squaretrade... But I got reimbursed and went for a new model. Thing is LOADED with fanfic now, I love it.) But man, Angry Birds is so much nicer on that screen than my phone's. >_> He also got the LotR extended edition on bluray for my whole family, to go with the huge TV we got earlier this month. :) In addition, as I commented on twitter on the day, I really appreciate socks and underwear as gifts so much more now than I did as a kid.

Also, the presents I gave were pretty much universally well-received, which always makes me extremely gratified. I love picking out the perfect present. Although the individual that expressed the most joy was, of course, my dog, who got a squeaky toy and went into transports of delight. Good times.

Anyway, wow, I think I've just said more than I've said in ages combined, so I'll leave it at that! TTFN!

.... Ha. Ahaha. Ha. Hahahaha. AHAHAHAHA.

Three words.

NEW. COMMENT. SYSTEM.

Although hey, at least my icons are still in fucking alphabetical order when I post new!

*HEADDESK*
dizmo: (mcu: clint/coulson purple)
Finished a WIP I've been working on for two freaking months on [livejournal.com profile] avengerkink. Cleaned it up and posted on the AO3. Realized I also never linked the other one I wrote for the same kink meme on my personal journal.

So here goes nothing.

Two fics, both Marvel movieverse, both Clint/Coulson. Very very different atmospheres, though. In finishing order, although the second I started well before the first...

A Very Coulson Christmas, PG-13. 2,366 words.
Coulson brings someone he's dating home for Christmas for the first time in years. Clint's looking forward to it.

Mirror, Mirror, NC-17. 21,593 words.
A certain god of mischief captures Coulson behind a mirror, and replaces him with a double. Phil gets to watch as his doppelganger subtly sabotages the Avengers... and becomes much more proactive in his love life than he'd ever dreamed of.

So apparently they've posted the 'Final 10 Days!' signs at the Borders I work at.

On, of course, my day off.

Wow. Just...

I'm processing this. Not that I didn't know it was coming, for obvious reasons.

But still. Man.

... I'm posting again? What madness is this?

Anyway, a fic porn fic meme that I much belatedly swiped from half my flist, copied directly from [livejournal.com profile] blindmadness.

01 » Submit a pairing (or threesome, or solo person) and a prompt by replying to this post.

02 » Please use the following format: fandom, pairing, prompt.

03 » I'll then reply with five sentences of smut. As I'm pasting from Maj, she went on to say that the original meme allows gen prompts and the like. I'm returning that caveat because I'm a complete coward willing to branch out my porn-writing muscles as best I can, but it's really not my forte, and please don't be mad at me if I somehow cannot manage to porn up your prompt. I will try my best!

04 » If I can't do the prompt then I will beg for your forgiveness, and offer it up to others let you select another if you'd like. [Though if anyone on my flist sees one they'd like to do that I've passed up, seriously, go for it!] And I add the further caveat that I warn you now up-front that I have this annoying tendency to flake on fic-memes like you wouldn't believe, but I will do my best to at least muster up a ficlet for at least one of everyone's prompts.

That being said... multiple prompts encouraged! :D

This is where I am supposed to list my fandoms but oh GOD I have so many. Generally, if you know I'm into something, feel free to prompt from it, but I'll go ahead and shortlist DC comics, Harry Potter, BBC Sherlock, Doctor Who, Babylon 5, Les Mis, and... I dunno, anthropomorphic kitchen tools. :D

Hi LJ!

... I know, I know. 14 months. You've probably forgotten who I am.

But I'm alive! :D I've just been... tumblring more than anything, I guess.

Really, I'm mostly posting because [livejournal.com profile] peridium told me to and for some reason I listened.

I would go down a rundown of my life over the last fourteen months buuuut yeah.

I MANAGED TO GO TO SDCC THIS YEAR. IT WAS GREAT.

... And excellent timing because I'm having to jobsearch again on account of... ha, I work at Borders. *facepalm* But that weekend let me take my mind off of it!

... GIP. Just because it's funny.

Times like this I totally wish I were a credible artist.

I just got the mental image of Batman surfing on Superman's back through the air.

And I cannot stop giggling.
dizmo: Out of context comics scan.  Batman and Superman walking. Superman: We both know for sure, now. We want to be married. (comics: bats/supes want to be married)
I amazingly and successfully finished my fic for [livejournal.com profile] au_bigbang. This actually makes me feel somewhat accomplished, because I've never written anything that long. XD It successfully upped my AO3 total wordcount by 63 percent. By itself. Dang.

That being said... if you wanna read it...

Title: Good Men
Fandom: DC movieverse
Pairing: Batman/Superman
Rating: NC-17
Summary: After the return of Superman, he and Gotham's new vigilante get to know one another. Written as if I lived in the moviefusion-verse and were writing superhero RPF. Because I so would.

Fic is right here!

And there's an epic fanmix for it by [livejournal.com profile] dwg over here!
dizmo: It's a carp.  With a halo.  Holy carp. (misc: holy carp)
Right. So Doctor Who.

I've always been fairly familiar with the mythology and basic story.

I've watched some of the Tom Baker serials with Andrew, bought him a scarf for his birthday. It was pretty epic.

I've recently decided to actually attempt to really get into it, thank goodness for streaming Netflix.

I steamed through Nine pretty quickly, and he was fantastic and all.

Ten, I find rather enjoyable, and am about halfway through his first season, and of course have every intention of catching up in time, although am not watching nearly as quickly.

But, y'know... new Doctor, I kinda wanted to get in on the ground floor and not continue to lag behind while the Whovians on my various lists get the joy...

So I've mainlined the first two Matt Smith episodes tonight along with [livejournal.com profile] tyriangalley, and having just finished...

And oh my God the immense squee that Eleven has engendered in me... I cannot even begin to describe it.

Just... Wow. I can't even begin to describe my... effervescent glee.

I... actually have a Doctor.

Wow.

:D

Right, so I've been thinking. Missed the first already, but hey, it's still ridiculously early in the month, so...

I'm hereby challenging myself to give comment-feedback to at least one fic on the AO3 every day this month. Because I'm really really bad at it and I know authors really really appreciate it.

And two today to make up for yesterday.

And with any luck, I won't end up flaking on this and I'll even continue it past this month, because, really, it means I get to read more fic! \o/

And yes, anyone else can feel free to join me in my self-challenge! It'll be awesome! :D

Buuut... A Sailor Senshi Maker!.

I blame [livejournal.com profile] mithen and her amazing Sailor Bat. That's all I have to say.

Sailor Krypton! )

Okay, that's that. Going to bed. Really. Honestly.

Night!
