And now, for [community profile] au_bingo: 585 Saiyuki vampire AU! Thanks to [personal profile] emungere for betaing.

The last of the fics, prompt 'oral fixation.' Weiss Kreuz, Nagi/Mamoru, contains my terrible sense of humor. Thanks to [personal profile] lindentreeisle for betaing.

More for [community profile] kink_bingo, prompt bondage (wrists/ankles). Futurefic, though that's not super-relevant here. The usual 'this fic contains Hakkai' sort of warnings apply. Thanks to [personal profile] emungere for betaing.

Today is the first day of the rest of Yozak's life. He's not sure how he feels about it. For the [community profile] kink_bingo prompt "hand kink." [personal profile] threewalls is the best kind of beta; thanks again for catching me. Any remaining mistakes are entirely mine. (And thanks to everyone who gave me advice on the Unicode issue!)

Thanks for the dune buggies over on LJ, [personal profile] ann89103 and mystery sender!

And now, I post the promised fic. Pairing as it says on the wrapper, rated R, for the kink-bingo theme "Obedience." BDSM and dominance themes, and a collar; it is clear all activity is consensual. (I hope.)

I have fic up for the Racebending Revenge Ficathon! It's Urban Legends, a Supernatural fic with a racebended Bobby. The other stories look good too, so check it out!

Mad Men Yourself has returned, stronger than before! That is to say, with more stuff.

If you don't want to Mad Men yourself, you can live live as a slacker with the Scott Pilgrim avatar generator.

If you haven't read Matt Taibbi on Lara Logan yet, you really should. (Relates to journalism and the Rolling Stone article that got McChrystal fired.)

[profile] kenilvort translated my story You'll Never Tan In This Town Again into Russian! How cool is that?

I read not a word of Russian, but IIRC, at least one of y'all do, so enjoy!

[profile] bigbangnitro has pushed its art deadline out a bit, so if you were thinking of vidding/mixing/creating and wanted more time, now you have it!

For those of you in the US, Black Books is up on Hulu. It is pretty amazing. You have to register because it is 'adult' but omg so worth it.

And I am currently messing around with some of the games at Sawbuck Gamer, a feature at the AV Club that features cheap and usually free games.

I had something else but I forgot it. I am woring on an FST, though. Whee, music!

T-minus five hours or so until Remix goes live, whee!

Also, I forgot to crosspost this, but I wrote zombie apocalypse Weiss Kreuz for [community profile] queerlygen.

And last but not least, don't forget to check out the Springkink prompts, 'cause they are awesome.

[profile] satorias asked for good fanfiction, and I have found some wonderful stuff, folks.

The Mutant Problem, X-verse interactive fanfiction. It's set up as a piece Peter Parker wrote for The New York Times.

And some amazing cracked-out Star Trek: Reboot crossovers.

AND an Alien universe epistolary story.

Also, someone is trying to remember a TMNT fanfic and I swear I remember it too. HELP.

Stolen from [personal profile] whymzycal:

Post the first lines from your last 20 stories. Do you see a pattern?

This is everything but Remix because Remix is still sekret.

Archive of Our Own makes finding this stuff easier )

I like to establish place in my first lines, clearly.

More fic, and a meme! [Apr. 2nd, 2010|03:38 pm]

In celebration of my [info]springkink fics getting done:

Ask me a question about one of my fics -- characters, plot, what happened before or after, what the writing process was like, what scenes I cut or changed, other ways the fic could have gone, relevant bits of backstory/headcanon/worldbuilding, what a certain line or scene meant or was in reference to, what various characters were doing offscreen.

And if you haven't seen them, the last two fics are both Saiukyi:

Goku and Hakkai

Hazel and Gat

For [info]springkink:

Black Lagoon-- Dutch and Balalaika, the games they play;

WK/Merlin-- Schuldig/Uther, time travel and the king's favorite.

And hey, I now officially qualify for Remix in Yami.

The apocalypse anyway. Read it and weep! or something. And check out the mix 'dog made me, IT'S AWESOME. OMG 15K words I did not think I could do that.

Did I ever thank whoever sent me the polar bear? Did I realize anyone sent me a polar bear? THANKS WHOEVER YOU ARE.

Remix signups are open! And I am one fic away from qualifying in Yami. This is so odd, as I've written it before and I don't think anything's changed. Maybe I didn't qualify and just matched on it? I DON'T KNOW. I know I have more stories and am half-tempted to just post one more drabble for the sake of my delicate sanity....

Insta-rec and fic: "Everybody Needs a Thrill" [Feb. 21st, 2010|09:50 pm]
[Tags|, , ]

Ever read a story and think GODDAMN I WISH I'D WRITTEN THAT IT'S GENIUS? This is one of those. Saiyuki, Hakkai/Gojyo.

And I have fic! The sequel to Pop Life, which Treneka betaed for me ages ago, and I finally fixed. Implied sex which may well be underage, implied threesome and f/f, my ridiculous sense of humor, and it's a Weiss Kreuz boy band AU.

A companion to yesterday's story, The Other Side. This one is about Zi and Jin, because Jin won't shut up ever they needed a little attention too. Warnings are essentially the same as the last story.

The long-promised Saiyuki reincarnation story! 58 het (female Hakkai), 3/surprise, set between Gaiden and Gensomaden. Not exactly deathfic, but you can't reincarnate without it, and I hope you don't mind age differences....

Author's note at the end, and much love to [info]emungere for betaing.

She wasn't pretty, exactly. She'd gone beyond pretty, if she'd ever been. But she was beautiful. )

Now the word is out... [Jan. 1st, 2010|01:27 pm]

I love Yuletide this year, because the works are already at Archive of Our Own, so I don't have to bookmark or fiddle around with my master list. Well, that's not the only reason I love Yuletide this year...

My main story was Drive, for the Speed Racer (2008) movie. Fortunately, [info]karose was around to beta, and [info]lindentreeisle took a second look. I knew I wouldn't get much for comments on this one, but the people who liked it seem to love it. And that, baby, is what Yuletide is all about.

My second Yuletide-length fic was Travel, a Petshop of Horrors story I tried to claim as a pinch hit the night Yahoo decided it hated [info]elynross-- so I wrote it as if it were my assignment, just in case it turned out to be. The recipient really seemed to like this one too, which made me super happy.

The most proper research I did this year was for a drabble, Shared Interests, about Nick Yemana from yes, Barney Miller. Look at what I found! Born Free and Equal is a book of photographs by Ansel Adams about the internment of Japanese-Americans during WWII. It's pretty amazing, I'll probably make a second post about it later.

I would never have written Best. Mom. Ever. as a Yuletide story, because it's futurefic, and even in Futurama, I try to stay within the bounds of canon unless a writer has a specific wish that pretty much mirrors my id. But it was a Madness story, so I went a little crazy with speculation. :D

Maybe my favorite story is one that didn't get many comments (though the ones I got were good!): Comfort, a drabble in the Full Metal Panic universe.

And the last (but not least) story I posted was for a fandom I offered and still kind of wish I'd been assigned: Paul Simon's Graceland album. Fried Banana Sandwiches is based on the title track.

[info]chash suggested that Chuck's archangel should quit and be replaced by Gabriel. And so there was fic, because that was pretty much the best idea ever. She also betaed, which is just one more reason to love her. Thank you, [info]chash! ♥

More or less gen with one canon pairing and a soupcon of slashiness. Spoilers for "Changing Channels" and "The Real Ghostbusters." As far as I'm concerned "Abandon All Hope" does not exist.

Chuck's week had pretty much sucked. )

In news that doesn't involve my watching NCIS: LA:

I posted a ton of stuff to [info]springkink!

Lavi and Kanda get caught on a train.

Billy and Teddy are incredibly cute.

Nagi and Mamoru are completely fucked up.

Guinevere, in contrast, is completely adorable.

Sanzo overhears Gojyo and Hakkai. Hilarity ensues.

Ouka and Mamoru AU.

Gunter/Gwendal and the abuse of stuffed toys.

And my [info]yuletart project is almost done! Whee.

And I'm 3000 words into the apocalypse. Oh yeah.
