It is not the end of the year! Why am I doing a fanfic round-up?

…because I have thus far written about 226,536 words of fic this year. I shit you not. I'm not even like. Done. I. What. No. Also, um, this is since June. All but 800 words of it. So 4 months I guess. Yeeeep.

Clearly the problem is my rekindled love affair with Blake's 7, but let's go to a chart to deal with HOW BAD THIS IS:


List of Completed Fics:

Sherlock Holmes (Downey films)

The Magic Teapot [VHS] (776 words)

Blake's 7


A/B (O) I & II (20,000)
15fic (20,000)
Objectively (300)

Total number: 17 fics thus far
Total word count: 30222 + 36770 + 8621 + 5320 + 6474 + 20899 + 3401 + 11063 + 2763 + 3959 + 6044 + GP&P (50,000) + A/B (O) I & II (20,000) + 15fic (20,000) + Objectively (300)

135,536 complete and posted B7 fic + about 90,300 not yet posted B7 fic + 800 word SH crack = 226,536 words of fic this year so far

…there are also some part-finished things, amounting to maybe… 10k? idk. Sigh.

Ship/character breakdown: …look I could tell you that everything is Blake/Avon and that you sometimes get ensembles out of me but even then it's still shippy bullshit, or you could just understand that is how my sad OTP ass rolls, bc presumably we have in some way interacted before.


Best/worst title?

Rojer gave us a PAIN. Man we wracked on that one. I'm happy with it now though. Who knows, re: worst. Dance Dance Revolution is funny but misleading. I've done pretty well with titles this year I think, but expect to fuck up on the still-unposted ones.

I don't have a fav really, but I will leave this place before I crumple and just explain why I think they're all funny.

Best/worst summary? MAN I have sucked at summaries this year.

Best: I don't LOVE it, but GP&P?

"It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single person must be in want of a partner. On Gauda Prime, the conviction had hardened into fact."

Roj Blake leads the Freedom Party from Gauda Prime, an agricultural commune with a harmless fetish for public assemblies and gossip. Kerr Avon, a free trader with an incredible ship, a fabulous supercomputer and no tact whatsoever, manages to get on Blake's bad side almost immediately.

Rojer: "Taking down the Federation might actually be easier than sorting out what's going on with Rojer's parents."
"As if…": "A series of short fics running through permutations of the soulmate-mark trope for this pairing."

So Rojer is functionally impossible to summarize. It's a kidfic. Ish. It's also military SF and politics--it's a novella about fighting and winning a war. It's also about a relationship that spans decades, with a LONG period before it's consummated, and then a substantial chunk dealing with the pairing characters' deaths and what happens after. Rojer, the title character, is the pairing characters' son and one of their political successors, and when we last see him he's like, 60, with adult children. So like, good. fucking. luck. Rojer is a better fic than this summary indicates, I think, but it's fucking DIFFICULT to be like--look um, buy in, trust me, this fic is a lot of goddamn things.

"As if" is functionally fucked bc it's 21 short stories that form a thematically united collection, and maybe I should have acknowledged this up-thread when thinking about the number of stories I'd written so far, but OH WELL.

Best/worst first line?
Best/worst last line?

I never know this/don't care as much as Katy does.

General questions:

Looking back, did you write more fics than you thought you would this year, less than you thought, or about what you predicted? ahahahahahah

What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted last year? siiiigh

What's your favorite story this year? Not the most popular, but the one that makes you the happiest.

Rojer's probably the best. I slightly resent it for being better than I can regularly produce on command? I like my unwritten ideas more than I like my fic, a lot of the time.

Okay, NOW your most popular story.

Oh man *nothing* this is such a quiet fandom, the most popular, “as if we were fools by heavenly compulsion”, only has 300 odd hits. It's so frigging fandom-dependent, isn't it? "Gentle Antidote" is just goodish, but Yuletide, so huge. Meanwhile in megafandoms… But I think Rojer, currently #2, will probably win out over time by virtue of being sort of like some old favs in this fandom. It is the most Judith Proctor or Suzan Lovettish thing I've done?

Story most underappreciated by the universe?

The stuff I posted yesterday--no, um, I like DDR better than other people do, but I think Last of the Chants is probably v good (I can't really tell) and not huge bc people fear crossovers.

Story that could have been better?

Anabasis. It's a bit of a fandom cliche, though I didn't quite know at the time--oh I knew PGP was a thing, I'd have to have never touched the fandom, just not afterlife stories. But Anabasis took me like two hours so who caaaares? It's not at all bad! It's just not amazing, and could be stronger on both ship and ensemble lines--and also I was fairly young, then, in my fandom writing.

Sexiest story?

Katy really liked the m/f B/A in Damosel Passing Fair, Religious Ecstasy has decent sex, and horrifyingly A/B (O) is fairly decent in this regard (the fuck was I thinking). I know Molly liked the m/f in the unpublished Knox's Rules. There's not actual sex in the underage fic, just a lot of loaded pining--that's weird (I should explain--there's an underage!fic because I essentially played Awkward Chicken with Paul Darrow's Avon novels, which is an awful idea--to win is to lose, and the only way to win is not to play).

Saddest story?

Omg Baron. Listen let me spoil this for you. A mundane AU where Avon's husband Blake dies nastily in a car accident. Obsessed with the children's safety, wretchedly alone/needy, unable to grieve properly and desperately in love with his dead husband/their kids/the remnants of their life together, Avon shuts down and starts poisoning their children (Munchausen's by proxy). In the end he gets called on it by his daughter and agrees to try and get better, acknowledging that in most of the ways that matter he never can, and that his vaunted pride and self-control have been thoroughly trashed. For me one of the worst parts is in the better bit, when he realizes he won't be able to make food for the children anymore because he can't trust himself, and will maybe never again be able to--that he'll have to have his daughter check to make sure he's not tampered with the seals etc. In a canon and fandom that tortures this character no-end, this still feels really painful and humiliating and yet, to me at least, a *super-plausible* mundane place to go with… well a man who, in space opera canon, is obsessed with personal safety and nevertheless thinks it's reasonable to let himself be tortured for five days to avenge his dead girlfriend, not even getting into his Thing With Blake.

Special mention for Rojer, which made at least 3 people cry. Once I got to watch. O_O Yaaaaay.

Most fun?

Strings Attached is cracky and joke-heavy with corset sex. There's Carnell, who's super-fun.

Story with single sweetest moment? appealed to elviaprose and she suggested: "I’d say either GP&P, Rojer, or possibly the Corset one, actually XP. I don’t know if it’s “sweet”—but the thing Carnell says about them remembering to be nice to each other is really lovely. Post Mortem is sweet but it doesn’t have a “moment”."

Maybe that bit in Detection where they lay down on all the papers about avon's fraud and Blake's torture sessions. Or Shiny Things, the close? Or Last of the Chants? (Though Molly argues we never get that moment in there--maybe bc we have the parts still to go). It's a weird call.

Hardest story to write?

I remember I was SO not feeling it for GP&P. Everything is weird bc I've been SUPER depressed during this period, and funneling my lack of feeling productive/frustration with academia into this in big, obvious ways. So there's been some groping in the dark: one day I could feel what was working, the next I was emotionally-numb and so essentially working blind, reliant on later editing and experience to push through. GP&P was the initial idea I had AGES ago for what one could do with this fandom, and it's long, a novel, and a bit plotty, and I'm still nooooot happy with its tone and characterization--whether I like it shifts with every read-through, and thanks to the zine editing process, there were a LOT.

Easiest/most fun story to write?

I REALLY enjoyed writing Last of the Chants. Several of these essentially spilled out in a night--Religious, Damosel, More Human, Anabasis, Baron, Strings, Post-Mortem.

Did any stories shift your perceptions of the characters? Well, it's a new fandom for me, so many! I feel like the gender swap ones, Damosel (f!Blake/m!Avon), Knox's Rules (f!Avon/m!Blake) (unfinished) and How to Spend It (plotted out, f/f), make me think more about fandom readings/expectations and canon and what's essential to the characters. As If probably helped just by being 21 shorts, so like, forcing me to raffle through permutations/possibilities and practice. Last's plotted sequel has helped a bit bc it has two versions of a character, Avon proper and Aven, from the nice magical Edwardianish Chrestomanci universe, and working with a radically AU version of anyone makes you think about what's essential to them--more so if you ALSO have to handle them-them. Overall I've gotten WAY more comfortable with the whole cast an an ensemble, and tend to read their canon relationships as nicer than I used to.

Most overdue story?

For the zine, GP&P.

Did you take any writing risks this year? What did you learn from them? Gosh, what have I not done. Unusual lengths, a theme'd collection, a new fandom, more and better gender-swapping than I have ever done, new wacky tropes I don't even like, v new story-structures for me. What did I learn, though--I think mostly I've been working into a different canon? Like I've had a LOT to do, with that.

What are your fic writing goals for next year? My problem rn is that I am FAT with ideas and bizarrely compelled to write them and worried they'll go if they don't? I need to like--get a GRIP, jesus.

...that is too much fic. Hope I didn't forget anything.
30 June 2015 @ 03:48 pm
I was having a bit twitter conversation about things I ship and how they map, so I decided to make a list of everything I've ever read fic for, barring like, miiinor adventures.

* denotes a pairing I've written for
as a kid: things I wouldn't read now, p much? A lot of my adult fandoms have been my fandoms for a decade +

Things I've read a lot of and would still seek out and read happily (though not all are like, KEY fandoms for me/my investment level varies, and it REALLY depends on my mood):
Blake/Avon (Blake's 7) *
Doctor/Master (Doctor Who) * (this cheats because it has like hundreds of possible combinations)
Peter/Harriet (Wimsey) * (needs more of a fic fandom!!)
Kirk/Spock (ST:TOS, reboot)
Picard/Q (ST:TNG)
Darcy/Elizabeth (P&P)
Buffy/Spike (Buffy)
Sarah/Jareth (Labyrinth)
Things I might have liked a lot better if canon/fandom had been there:
Peter/Lydia (Teen Wolf) A LITTLE, Series 1
Thornton/Margaret (N&S)
Ratigan/Basil (Great Mouse Detective) * I AM NOT EVEN SORRY i am I AM NOT (I'd write more but tbh I'm not in the mood to be any MORE Church in the Wild rn)
Disraeli/Gladstone (history)
Sallieri/Mozart (Amadeus)
Death/Elisabeth (Elisabeth)
Aeon/Trevor (Aeon Flux)
gen Chrestomanci fic (I wish she'd written something I shipped, I feel SO fannish about DWJ but I have no locus for it really)
Michelangelo/Julius II (Agony and the Ecstasy)
Lawrence/Sherif Ali (Lawrence of Arabia)

Things I read a lot of but don't seek out now:
Jeeves/Wooster (Jeeves novels, show)
Hornblower/Bush (Hornblower novels) (though I'd also read /Barbara)
Vimes/Vetinari (Discworld)
Holmes/Watson (ACD)
I've read a little Steve/Tony and Loki/Thor (MCU) but not been IN it
Legolas/Gimli (LOTR)
Sauron/Gandalf (LOTR)
Xavier/Magneto (MCU)
Stuff I wrote that I didn't ship:
also wrote some stuff I don't properly ship for Elle/Callahan (Legally Blonde) for a challenge *
and Wall E gen for a friend *
Moriqrty/Moran (Ritchie) for a friend *

Stuff I read a lot of as a kid but probably wouldn't read now (though sure if a fic was AMAZING):
I did read Sam/Gene (LoM) in uni but now I feel that's not correct, quite
Bulma/Vegeta (DBZ) as a kid
One/Four (C:KND) as a kid, with a friend *
gen Star Wars family relationships as a kid *
I did read Kira/Dukat (TNG) as a kid and feel bad for it
Kagome/InuYasha (Inu Yasha) as a kid
Ichabob/Horseman (Sleepy Hollow), as a kid
Sparrow/Norrington (Potc1) as a kid
Read some Potter shit but was never IN there
some more anime--Slayer? Lina?? and Rock-guy with like an X name??
Treize/Une (Gundam Wing)
Zechs/Noin (Gundam Wing)
there is more anime, but fuck if I know it rn


* I have 3 TYPES really:
bffs w complex loyalty issues
things like Gaudy Night
(and overlaps, like, have fun locating B/A in this schema)

* Idc about gender/advanced age/hotness really--I mean I will FIND the hotness
* it feels like cheating that romances I LOVE but don't read fic for aren't on here, but DO I 'ship' them if I don't seek fic?
* It is notable that they're all clever p much :/
* I'm nearly always protags
* Nearly always people I'd make an academic argument for
* I go for: the ship that makes SENSE of the text for me, that enriches the text
* It's often a case where, in my reading, it's kind of immaterial whether they shag or not because their emotional involvement with one another is incontestibly vital to them and the narrative
* I have a hard time squeezing a ship out of a small canon
* I like super/super and super/mundane as their own things (tho happy w mundane/mundane in canons where that's not a thing)
* I have to care about both characters (some people really don't, it's fandom darling and what makes him happy/a cock--that's a mean way of putting it but you KNOW someone is watching that grapefruit oral sex trick video and going mm, Spike/Grapefruit)
* On making my big list and finding no femslash pairs, tho I am a queer lady and yea, be in a queer relationship: I've happily read femslash versions of a lot of these, and het versions of the slash ships? I honestly think it's that thing where two central women having a CENTRAL, IMPORTANT relationship that might be gay is rare, bc god knows when I get to a new fandom one of my first instincts is 'ok what changes if they're women'. I mean the only way I'd ever be happy about a Blakes 7 reboot is if the protagonists were lesbians let's put it fucking that way.
* Too white, possibly for similar reasons. Like--I trust myself enough, I think, to say that if Spock was black I'd still dig the living shit out of it. But what canon gives me something like K/S but with a PoC? I know I have some anime on here but that's not quite the same.

Since joining the Liberator crew, Avon has found himself constantly worrying about Blake's safety, and has saved Blake numerous times from ludicrously dangerous situations. It's not Avon's fault that this looks like chivalry, which he doesn't believe in any more than he believes in Blake's cause, and which Blake has never had much use for.

*blatantly stolen from elyssadc*

So I've realized that it's been just a few months shy of a year since I first watched a Who ep. Naturally I've seen New Who, but I've been slacking a bit on getting my classic on--or I'll start an arc and wander off, or rely on wiki to tell me what happens so I can move on to the more fun bits rather than finishing it off. What better than public shaming to make me get cracking on my old Who?

ONLY ARCS I'VE FINISHED IN FULL GET BOLDED. This will hopefully discourage my 'oooh, a shinny object! *flee*' ways.

Recs as to what in particular to watch are welcomed, naturally.

Classic Doctor Who EpisodesCollapse )
13 April 2015 @ 06:34 pm

I always write--for people to read. Not tailored like a suit, but for a few readers. There's a whole school of writing that emphasizes TOTAL INDIVIDUALISM as the only artistic!! perspective--write for oneself, etc. But that's some Romantic Muse-Whispers bullshit. Writing is always communication--there's an intended recipient, or it's not even writing, just marks. Maybe according to purists of that ilk you are your own Best Reader, but I've never really enjoyed reading my own work (very occasionally, but not as a rule, and I don't do it much).

Pre-Tumblr, when I was more embedded in fandom, I felt a lot surer of what people wanted. And I never really wrote The Zeitgeist--I was never in MEGAFANDOMS and their Central Pairings--but I knew sort of--what pairings and topics might interest anyone who wasn't just me.

So without asking anyone to demonstrate cray excitement over fic that doesn't exist yet, and which may never exist (I've given up projects before this), here are some WIPs, things I've plotted, and things I think I should probably write. It might help me if you could mention which you might like to see, so I can sort my priorities/plans and see what there's an audience for (no pressure though, of course!). Generally it serves as a good reference list for my use. I can hold a lot of plots in my head but not really--a neat list of all the possible things I can/should work on, that I can eassily evaluate the pros and cons of doing rn and choose between.

(Italics indicate that I have a pretty developed idea of what I'd do there)

Blakes 7, Wimsey, Doctor Who, Star Trek, GMD, some crossoversCollapse )

Summary: B_E kinkmeme prompt: “Anything Doctor/Master with hot telepathic sex.” Exactly 100 words, excepting the title. (a tidied old kinkmeme drabble)

Forgot the TimeCollapse )

A/N: This one I chopped some words out of and spent ages trying to get back to 100. It took me forever to remember how “Those sharp joys were all the better for being fleeting.” worked, but once I knew I was really reluctant to change the wording, even to make the phrase easier for the reader to access, because I quite liked it as was (and ‘unpacking’ that satisfyingly would take more room than a drabble has the luxury of).

A/N: A tidied kinkmeme drabble, original here: http://community.livejournal.com/best_enemies/13938.html?thread=182898#t182898 .

This must be either a BDSM scenario that’s gone incredibly (literally, I cannot credit it) well, or the stuff of Ainley!Master’s headiest fantasies. Spent a solid 5 min today looking at ‘like’ and ‘those’ and trying to tweak that into something slightly better/slightly more in-voice--to no avail. Ah well.

I think I *just got* why The Curse of Peladon is named that. It's totally a Pellinore & Questing Beast joke, isn't is, via Malory and TH White? Or has the madness taken me?
