Oh, man, do I love Remix.

I was remixed THREE TIMES this year!

The main remix: Adventures in Babysitting (The Thicker Than Water Remix), Weiss Kreuz, which retells some of the Ran-verse from Schuldig's perspective and somehow doesn't contradict my headcanon, which is amazing considering how much hidden headcanon is in Ran-verse. (I would have been fine with a story that did, I'm just kind of amazed still that it didn't.)

And then two very different stories for Madness:

Cleanse Thyself (The Wash that Man Remix), a funny Gundam Wing fic about Heero washing Duo's hair.

Seeds of Spring (the Second Bite at the Pomegranate Remix), about the Persephone myth, and a major expansion on the small fic I originally wrote.

They are all great for completely different reasons! I FUCKING LOVE REMIX.

[personal profile] ranalore and [personal profile] momebie and of course anyone else:

Persea Books is taking submissions for the Editor's Choice awards. Editor's Choice Award is open to any American with at least one previous collection of poems. The winner receives publication and $1,000 + $1,000 stipend toward expenses associated book promotion (e.g. travel to/from readings). Apparently Persea is great, and I can't remember if either of you qualify but I figured you could spread the word where appropriate.

At some point, somewhere (and it wasn't one of [personal profile] indelicateink's prompt fests 'cause I made her look) requested Sanzo/Goku AU where I think Sanzo was an architect. He was some kind of high-end genius, anyway, and Goku did 'manual labor.' 'Manual labor' is, for real, the only phrase I remember for sure because that's the title I saved the story under. Anyone have any ideas? I'd like to give credit where credit is due, but...I got nothin'.

This is a drabble for [personal profile] red_squared's suggestion of Omi and Yohji. Enjoy yourself some UST.

[personal profile] indelicateink did a Weekend Flash Challenge and I've at least finished one thing, goshdarnit. For her prompt "psychic gang leader Schuldig and rival psychic gang leader Crawford meet to arrange a détente!"

Fuck yes détente. I mean, détente is French for porn, right?*

Because this is basically pornCollapse )


* I know détente is not French for porn

When you see this, share 3 random lines from 3 WIPs.

  1. "DI Lestrade. Pleasure to meet you." American voice. Sounded like a young man's. The answer to American or Irish was, apparently, American.
  2. "So," Gojyo said. "When the fuck were you going to tell me? Were you gonna wait until I'd killed somebody?"
  3. Mamoru was too old for these stupid games. But of course, he was too old to do anything else, too. Too far along in his career--both careers--to retire. Too old and well-known to disappear.

I signed up for Shipswap! Come sign up for shipswap! I mean, if you want. Here's my letter anyway.

In general: I like humor, drama, snark, romance, smiling in the face of absurdity. I'm a sucker for AUs, including but not limited to canon AUs. I asked for art 'cause I like art. Your style is probably something I'll like!

Here are some things I don't like: Character bashing/needless sideswipes at characters, noncon, infidelity. I read some dubcon but am weirdly fussy about it, so if you don't already know me it'd probably be easiest not to write it.

The Librarians, Moby Dick, Young AvengersCollapse )

I got an awesome story for Yuletide--an awesome backstory for Wreck-It Ralph, with a lot of cool worldbuilding too.

Becoming Virus, only 1300~ words but with a lot of character work and thought put into it. Thanks again, astraev!

I wrote three stories for the main archive and two for Madness:

Try, Try Again (Is the Title of Santiago's Sex Tape), Brooklyn Nine-Nine, where I take a perfectly good joke and run it into the ground. (Written before the Eric Garner non-indictment and the tensions exposed between mayor and PD. I'm not going to note it on the fic itself but it...felt a little awkard, unfortunately.)

Continuing my tradition of writing Rh Plus for any sucker who requested it, I wrote Let Me See what Spring Is Like on Jupiter and Mars for [personal profile] daegaer. Vampires in spaaaace!

And I decided to try a fandom I'd never tackled before and wrote Daken fic. Reset is a tale of survival, no matter how reluctant.

For Madness:

Bisou, Bisou is Princess Bride fic, the story of Inigo and Fezzick's first kiss. All the Princess Bride fics this year were good, in main Yuletide and Madness, and I find myself wanting to just roll around in Princess Bride-ness.

A Watch and a Fresh Pair of Socks is Jackrum's thoughts at retirement, from Monstrous Regiment and heavily influenced by learning what the original inspiration Jackrum probably was (the sergeant in All Quiet on the Western Front).


I also signed up for [community profile] getyourwordsout again, and pledged to write 300,000 words this year. I made it last year...let's see if I can repeat. Maybe this time I'll even keep up with my flist and stuff.

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).

Saiyuki

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 so...so here it is!
