You guys, I got beautiful art for Parallels. No knowledge of the canon necessary, and it's all Heian Era lovely. ♥

Also an excellent reminder that I have a ship other than that one with the talking tree and talking raccoon, which was probably needed at this point in my life.

I'm playing Get Your Words Out bingo, and I picked 'settings.' One of them looks a bit like Miami....

EDIT because I screwed up the copypasta. Or copied someone else's card, who the fuck knows.

Did I mention I'm failing at LJ? Cause boy, am I.

I wrote lots of stuff, though.

I wrote One for Four (The Measured with Coffee Spoons Remix) for Sherlock Remix.

BowlofGlow wrote Impossible Things Before Breakfast as a remix of my Under the Skin.

I have also written a ton for [profile] weissvsaiyuki, which you should check out if you haven't already. (I need to catch up on my reading there).


Pray Someone is There to Hit the Switch, Saiyuki Gaiden, Tenpou/Kenren, the theme 'mad science' and lots of foreboding

Through the Mill of Love, canon-divergent AU where Goyjo is a prostitute and Hakkai is...not that different.

Cold Snap is another Saiyuki Miami Multiverse story.

For the Rashomon challenge (take on the same story through a different perspective), I wrote Good Dog, connecting to Cold Snap.

Weiss Kreuz

Recursive, where Nagi and Mamoru end up working together between Kapitel and Gluhen.

Trying to figure out how long it would take a cargo ship to go from Tokyo to Thailand and then Taiwan, because Thailand would take too long.

Remix reveals are up and I realized I'd never recced my original remix because I am basically failing at LJ these days. So!

[personal profile] daegaer wrote You Can Call Me Al (The Clubbed to Death Remix), a spin on my own "You Can Call Me Al," a Schuldig/Crawford I wrote way back for springkink. It was really fun to see the 'other half' of the story and I laughed like hell. She also managed to portray, brilliantly, Schuldig's mental state; no small feat considering the premise.

I wrote two stories, one regular remix and one quickly written Remix Madness fic. As usually happens in these cases, the quick one has way more hits and kudos. I like the story but I wish I'd had a bit more time with it.

But! I still like them both.

Cafe de I'Europe (The à la carte remix) is my first Black Butler/Kuroshitsuji story ever, remixed from [personal profile] phoebe_zeitgeist's The Second of our Reign, about Ciel working very specifically to help Sebastian with...a certain problem. My remix is about Ciel going shopping.

The Madness fic was Restored (The More or Less Functional Remix) which is also the first (and possibly only) time I've written Clint/Coulson. I seem to be in a place where I will take any excuse to write hearing aid fic. I'm okay with that. The original work was Only Human. by marieincolour. I liked the way Marie worked the contrast between Clint and his superpowered teammates in the fic, but I backgrounded that in my remix and focused more on his relationships.

I also realized I never claimed my ShipSwap, where I wrote Todd/Lydia from Breaking Bad. Fuck yes horrible tasteless pairings.

I have been AWFUL. Mostly on Tumblr when not in my secret lair writing shit.

Indelicateink did a mini fic weekend! I wrote stuff! Someone wrote for me! Check it out, there is great WK and Saiyuki stuff.

Speaking of Saiyuki: NEW RELOAD BLAST SCANS HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT I CAN'T HANDLE THIS. Reading this immediately after listening to the last Night Vale was an especially ill-advised idea.

I also got an AMAZING (not really SFW) piece of Captain America fanart for ShipSwap! Check it out here. It's Falcon/Cap but JUST GO LOOK AT IT OKAY IT'S AMAAAAZING.

Don't forget to check out the Weiss Kreuzmas stories! The ones I've read so far are great.

I received Good Intentions, a funny and bittersweet and slightly heart-wrenching Nagi/Mamoru story.

I wrote You Can't Make an Omelet Without Breaking Some Telepaths, about Crawford's work to get Schuldig in place.

Hilariously, Slate then published this article about how violent and terrible that idiom is. Yes, yes it is. That's why it was the perfect title. Hahah.

Then there was Yuletide!

A reminder to read my gift fic, The Ghost of the Grand Hotel, if you know Twin Peaks. Don't let the typo in the summary put you off, it's really, really good.

I wrote three stories:

Due Diligence, a prequel Tiger and Bunny fic about Kotetsu and Tomoe as they wait for Kaede to arrive.

I wrote a fun little RPF AU trifle, To Go and Boldly Raid Someone Else's Cargo, where Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen are space pirates, because how could I resist writing that, people.

And then there was the first fic I started, back when letters went up, and the last fic I finished, because the ending! The ending almost killed me. The Not Entirely Accurate Chronicle of John Polidori, Genius Physician and Brilliant Writer, and His Rather Less Distinguished Companions is from the point of view of the physician who accompanied Lord Byron on his rather infamous trip to Geneva, where Byron had a lot of sex and Mary Shelley started Frankenstein.

This was...I think the biggest Yuletide hit I've ever written, guys. And I did it with historical RPF. Go figure. I just got an email that's been podficced, man. IDEK.

I do know I owe my betas big-time, especially [profile] edonohana, who helped me end the Poldori fic and assured me that, yes, it was funny. Guess she was right, huh.

Hello all! I received a WONDERFUL Yuletide fic. It is about Josie and you all should read it NOW.

The Ghost of the Great Hotel, Twin Peaks, AWESOME. Its structure is just brilliant, if you know the canon at all. (If you don't, I'm afraid it doesn't work as well, as this is just neck deep in the people and setting and canon events. IT'S SO GOOD, GUYS.)

I also enjoyed this World War Z fic, Zack Don't Surf, despite not knowing the canon beyond reading half a sample chapter on a Kindle at Best Buy the other day.

There might be more recs later but I wanted to rec my Yuletide fic as soon as I had time and brain to do here it is!

Batman saves a cat

Sikh Captain America.

DC Comics admits they were boneheads on the Whole Harley Quinn thing. No luck with all the other stupid stuff they've done lately. We probably can't get the APA to say "we urge DC Comics to just let Kate Kane get married already."

EDIT: The unluckiest tailor in Gotham. EXCELLENT.

"Think about it: Captain America is David Byrne, Iron Man is Lou Reed, Hulk is Iggy Pop, Thor is Dee Dee Ramone, Black Widow is Patti Smith, Hawkeye is Tom Verlaine, Nick Fury is Hilly Kristal, and Loki, of course, is Sting."

At Slate, on how terrible the CBGB movie looks, among other things.

...of course Venture Brothers did it first.

Also I aren't dead, I'm watching Spaced, and I'm trying to do everything I told everyone I'd do this weekend.

I've been meaning to call attention to this year's Weiss Reverse-a-Thon, where people prompt and authors choose the prompts they want the most.

I wrote Break Every Yoke, about Nagi's experiences during the Dramatic Precious arc.

[personal profile] daegaer wrote Bringing a Partner Home to my prompt: "AU: Mamoru isn't as strong as Schuldig; his manipulation powers are far more subtle. Still, it's enough to land him at Rosenkreuz."

I highly encourage you to check out all the fic and art, though, because there's sure to be more to your taste. It's always so much fun to participate in too!
