2012 fic roundup!

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 )

Stuff and nonsense.

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

... 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

Here's a meme I haven't done in a while!

1) Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me!"
2) I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3) You will post the answers to the questions (and the questions themselves) on your blog or journal.
4) You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5) When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Questions generously provided by [livejournal.com profile] peridium.

Fic, and movies, and Twilight. And semi-naked mudwrestling. Have I intrigued you? )

Yes, I'm a memesheep, I don't care.

Put your MP3 player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results. The first line of the twenty-first is the title.

There Used to Be a Graying Tower Alone on the Sea

Never know what you're gonna feel
So rotten, so rotten here
Don't you fret, Monsieur Marius
The snow won't stick to the weeping willows

Cosette, it's turned so cold
There's a new sound
Why don't you drive through my heart?
She said she'd meet me in the bar at the Plaza Hotel

You're a song written by the hands of God
Live in my house, I'll be your shelter
My poor lover arrives at my door
High in a tower, like yours was, but higher

Take back what they've taken
I can't remember the last time that we kissed goodbye
One day I woke up, woke up knowing today is the day I will die
Baby, no, it's not that I don't care

Here I come again now, baby
He's a very nice prince
Well I come from a land, from a faraway place
This is a call to the colorblind

It almost makes twisted sense in places, but... then in the rest of the places, it's like... huh?

Man, I almost wanna do this thing like ten more times.

Ugh, gotta go to work in an hour.

Woo. Stuff.

Yuletide author, if you're stalking me, I'm gonna totally post my dear author letter after I get home from work tonight. Which, granted, won't be until midnight, but. :b REALLY, THOUGH, I'M EASY.

That being said... Meme!

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post a line from the first 30 songs that play.
Step 3: When someone guesses both artist and song correctly, replace the lyrics with his/her name. (If it's a musical, you can name the musical instead of the artist.)
Step 4: Looking the lyrics up on Google or any other search engine is considered CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like the game post your own!

I'm just lemming-ing Dili.

So [livejournal.com profile] rhombal was playing around with the Drabble-Matic to make bandom drabbles. And they turned out funny. So I decided to do one. ... And will probably add more, because this is hysterical.

A Pete/Patrick....

The Squirrel Prince

Pete was walking through a sticky meadow, laughing at the butterflies flitting around his head when he spied an adorable little squirrel lying under a tree.

Pete skipped over to see the dear thing and was rough to find that he was hurt! A phone had pierced his pale little finger and he whimpered softly with the pain.

"My shiny little friend," Pete said. "Let me help you!" He took out his Leatherman Multi-Purpose tool and pulled out the phone, as stirringly as he could. The squirrel cried out and Pete's heart ached, like a really inexpensive but totally meaningful gift. "You'll be all right," Pete whispered. "I'll take care of you. I'll call you Patrick and you can live with me forever!"

Scooping Patrick up in his arms, Pete carried him home and made a bed for him beside his own. For seven days and seven nights, Pete nursed Patrick, cleaning his finger and feeding him Shoe-brand squirrel chow.

On the eighth night, Patrick climbed into bed with Pete. He burrowed under the covers and worriedly licked Pete's elbow. It made Pete giggle and he cuddled close to Patrick, stroking his leg and singing sultrily to him.

They continued that way for a long time. Every day, Pete hurried home so he could curl up with Patrick. It gave him an intriguing feeling whenever Patrick licked his elbow.

Then one night, Patrick looked up at Pete and said, "If you kiss me, I will become a cuddly prince."

Pete screamed carefully, he was so surprised. How could a squirrel talk? He must have dropped off and dreamed it.

"You're not dreaming," Patrick said. "Kiss me."

"Don't tell anyone I screamed like that," Pete said and kissed Patrick on his leg. The air swirled and suddenly, there stood a cuddly prince! With a crown and everything!

"I'm Prince Patrick," he said. "I was cursed. It's a long story."

"Is it really you?" Pete said.

"See?" Patrick said and showed Pete the scar from the phone on his finger. Then he kissed Pete and they tumbled over the moon and did a lot of very terrible things, some of them involving a wet hoodie.

"I love you," Patrick said when they were done. Pete clasped him close and they lived together happily ever after on all the prince treasure Patrick had stashed away.

And if Patrick didn't know about Pete's visits to the squirrel sanctuary, well, it wouldn't hurt him.

And a Frank/Gerard )

Voice Post Meme!

Voice posts are fun, right? You get to hear funny accents if your friends are from far, far away. All we really want is to hear your voice, we don't care what you're saying. So here's a list of typical meme questions that would otherwise be boring, but when communicated aloud - well, it's entertaining. Answer these questions in your post, and encourage others with voice-posting abilities to do the same.

1) What's your name?
2) How old are you?
3) Where are you from? Are you living there right now?
4) Is it cold where you are?
5) What's the time?
6) What are you wearing?
7) What was the last thing you listened to?
8) What was the last thing you ate?
9) What was the last thing you watched on tv?
10) What's your favorite tv show? Why?
11) Quick! Find a book, or something with text on it! Flip to a random page and read some of it! GO!
12) What was the last movie you saw? How was it?
13) Do YOU think you have an accent? Talk about that.

Okay. So I got a new car. He's a green '92 Ford Probe.

I'm trying to think of names for him. I want it vaguely fandomy-ish.

There are two names I've thought of thus far. They both have pros and cons.

One: CARDIS. >_> Just because... It's funny as hell. Cons being that it's green and not blue, and... I don't actually watch Doctor Who. XD

Two: Well... It's green. It's seen better days, and a lot of people would think poorly of it. But I trust it implicitly nonetheless. Hence... Severus! The only con in this instance... I totally intend to eventually get plates that say RAVNCLW. So. Uh. Wrong house, there. XD

HOWEVER. I'm leaning a bit towards the latter nonetheless... BUT IF THERE ARE ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS, PLEASE, DO LET ME KNOW.


Five things meme. That is all. XD

I know I've only seen two episodes...

... But since I HAVE seen two episodes (which will undoubtedly shoot up drastically tomorrow. Yay arrival of DVDs!), I think I'm obligated to do this meme.

When you see this post, quote from Supernatural in your lj

... Man, I need some SPN icons.

If you correctly guess which SeSa (or Yuletide! Although that would be significantly harder!) story I wrote, I'll write you a ficlet.

Anyway, comments are screened, have at, although I dunno if anyone's gonna take me up on it. XD
