About this journal

I pretty much exclusively use this lj for posting fannish work and glee. Lots of my fannish writing is explicit, and I often don't post content warnings, so be aware before you read. I don't post that regularly, mostly just when I have something new to share, and I don't post locked, so I don't friend back -- I don't like filtering, so my flist is just what I'm reading right at this moment in time.

You don't have to ask to friend or defriend my journal, or to link to anything I post, or to crit my stuff, or to make sequels/podfics/fanart/whatever based on it, etc. As long as credit is given, you don't need my permission.

I WOULD especially love it if you post your work on the Archive of Our Own (http://ao3.org) and cite my original story as a related work there, because then I can easily link back to you from the original story. :D

If you make a translation/remix/etc of one of my things and don't have an AO3 account, I have invites, just PM me your email address for one, and if it's for one of my stories that isn't on the AO3 yet, let me know and I'll put it up so you can link it.



PS: anon commenting is disabled here on my livejournal because I was getting badly spammed. You can comment anon on my Dreamwidth journal instead if you want.

sekrit to those exiting tumblr pursued by bears

Who are you on here & there? Tell me in comments please! I only just belatedly turned on the notification for new followers, so I have no idea who has just turned up and I don't know how to find everyone in my tumblrish fandoms. *peers around in fog*

Also let me know if you know any active comms for Transformers, Witcher, GoT, HP, or, uh, anything else I'm forgetting. Oh, Dragon Age! I've been replaying DAO lately and having a blast with the Alister Revised Romance mod (and also the absolutely necessary Skip The Deep Roads mod omg, so glad for that).

new fic!

Wow, I didn't realize how completely I'd fallen down on cross-posting here. Why doesn't just THINKING about posting something cause the post to happen? :P Anyway, the most reliable way of getting new story notifications is to subscribe to me on AO3 since everything is getting posted there, but in the meantime, to catch up:

Transformers (all of these are Megatron/Optimus):

Project Bang (7400 words)
Ratchet shrugged tolerantly when Optimus asked his opinion. "I think it’s more a lark than anything, but we can all use a lark, now and then."

Peacemaker (27,000 words)
Megatron just stared at him through the cell door with a strange expression and didn't say anything. "Well?" Optimus said, half furious and desperate. "Will you promise not to hurt any Autobots escaping if I let you out?"

Grappling (2800 words)
The worst part of getting tied up in his own grapples and yanked into Megatron’s terrible grip and nearly killed was, unquestionably, getting tied up in his own grapples and yanked into Megatron’s terrible grip and nearly killed. The second worst part of it...

And then I fell into a Game of Thrones hole and have written a giant pile of Jaime/Brienne fic but my wrist is hurting so I'm not going to c&p all of them individually, here's the whole series:  

Game of Thrones works
7 works & 75,000 words total 

Whew!

Oh, and I am at Denver Comic-Con this weekend doing book promo, if any of you are in the area! And will be at San Diego Comic-Con and DragonCon too. Anyone else going? *peers around for fangirls*

Fanfic prompts for Hanukkah!

Hey guys, I am in revision mode all next week so more procrastination is clearly called for. I’m going to take prompts and try to post a little story for every night of Hanukkah, each with a vague theme of light.

Any fandom I’ve done is fair game, although tbh odds are best right now for Transformers, Thor, HP, and Witcher.

These are going to have to be short so I am more likely to do prompts that aren't super complicated. I’m happy to do missing scenes or sequel bits to existing stories. If you can connect the prompt to light in some way all the better. :)

Drop me prompts here or in my tumblr ask if you prefer to have them private!

INCOMIIIIING

In the last six weeks I have written about 60K of pro fic and 200K of Transformers fanfic because that's how things go around here. *clings to firehose blasting in all directions*

Anyway I have not let myself actually post any of this fic until I finished my book, because I could not afford the time to sit around refreshing comments like one does, and so I now have four basically finished stories and I offer a ticky poll in case you would like to help me decide which one to post first, which I get to do because I finally delivered my manuscript whoo:



PS: I am lying, tbh what I seem to actually be doing here more or less is retelling Those Who Walk Away From Omelas, except with more explosions and giant robots having sex, which I think no one can really argue doesn't represent a significant improvement over the original.

Anyway, I have a lot of feelings about Transformers and here they come! Fair warning. :P

Videlicet

Reader, I am really fucking tired. *insert long tedious explanation of the past week involving hospital, fainting, copious vomiting (different days, different family members), family visit, 3 playdates, and ending with my current location in hotel room in Disneyworld*

Everyone is okay now but OMG.

HOWEVER I am actually here to share this vidding zine what lim made, which I was so thrilled to participate in:

Videlicet

I think it is really quite awesome and full of interesting and joyful and fannish thought in the very best way. My own contribution was to rave on about [personal profile] sisabet's vid Bad Romance, which spoiler alert is one of my most favorite vids and if you want to know why GO LOOK AT THE SHINY.

[More Joy Day] Taking prompts!

I think we could all use More Joy today!

I'm going to be on the train for a few hours today heading to the protest in DC, so drop me fic prompts in this post and I will try and write a bunch of them while traveling! Any fandom/pairing I have written. I will pick a handful of prompts that spark me and write as many as I can until I run out of time. (This may turn out to be one prompt if it runs away with me, fair warning!)

Please no politics-related prompts though. I am absolutely practicing escapism in my fannish life.

(And if you want to give ME more joy, you could toss me some Geralt/Emhyr prompts. ;)

Witcher: Incomplete (Geralt/Emhyr)

Whee, the torrent continues!



Incomplete (24354 words) by astolat

Summary:

I had often wished for the chance to meet His Imperial Majesty, of course, but hardly under these circumstances. I’d really envisioned something more along the lines of a command performance for the court, or perhaps a ceremony of decoration as a Master of the Arts.



If you want a taste of Dandelion before you read this one, this video has basically no spoilers for anything else in the game and is also pretty hilarious. :P

“If I wished to hire you, I would hire you,” Emhyr said. “No: I want you to come to my bed.”
