REMIX REDUX is running again! They're doing voting on fandoms now.

I requested ASOIAF/Game of Thrones, so if you've got 5 500+ word stories OR 7 100+ word stories, want to back me up?

Um, signal boosting would be great, too! I don't even know where fandom lives anymore for anything outside of my Twitter/Tumblr circles. /o/
ishie: (Default)
uh, content warning for references to sexual abuse and assault

so. )

anyway, this will all be proven stupid and wrong tomorrow night!


what's your theory? (obviously if there are comments you should consider that they've got spoilers for all eps up to the finale!)

Here are the things I plan to finish this year.

  1. Zine thing #1
  2. Ship swap
  3. Zine thing #2
  4. Zine thing #3
  5. Seafarer first draft
  6. Revisions on serial killer draft
  7. post-ASOIAF longfic
  8. Sif/Loki bookstore AU
  9. Roman Holiday longfic
  10. ASOIAF wrongfic
  11. Jeremy/Betsy tropefic
  12. ...other tropefics so I don't default again
  13. [redacted original stuff]

Probably there's some other fandom stuff left out. I can't count how many challenges I've defaulted on in the past year or so because I can't remember to keep track of what I'm signed up for. /o\

I don't have a spike (or a desk to put it on really) yet but I am racking up the original writing rejection slips, which is pretty exciting! An acceptance would be way more exciting but my original stuff just isn't there yet. It's a much harder set of muscles to flex than I thought.

I'M DOING [ profile] wipbigbang!

But. Uh, nasty noncon ASOIAF I've been so ashamed of writing I haven't finished it for more than a year? Or VEEP fic I've been trying to write for a year but keep getting stalled on? Or ... I forget what my other option was. Oh, long-dead Molly Hooper hiatus fic or Downton—

You know what: let's do a poll!

ishie: (fandom:push // in this together)
What an ugh of a day. Had to decline to pursue two jobs last night because of pay and commute and time commitment issues, and got a notification this morning that Dream Job will not be mine. I just want to land somewhere. I'm tired of trying.

Snowflake Day Three

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create.

I actually had three recs from Yuletide that I couldn't find the right words for before reveals:

Anagnorisis: The Odyssey fic, about Odysseus learning how to fit in at home again and Penelope letting him

Persistence: Ötzi the Iceman, wow, what a fantastic tale this is: Ötzi trying and failing to cross the mountain, and somehow being aware of the world he's brought back into

Disremember: Push (2009), NOT Nick/Cassie but gen, neat take on how Nick has to be brought back to the truth again

2014 plans

ishie: (fandom:doctor // don't do that)
It's been a long time since I had a year worth being proud of, writing-wise, so I'm hoping to turn that around in 2014. I've signed up for [community profile] inkingitout, Trope Bingo, and the Extreme Big Bang, so am planning to finish a lot of WIPs that have been lingering in drafts.

0 / 150000 words. 0% done!

I've also got a thread at the anonymous feedback meme (&CONCRIT;)*, and if you want to use the January writing meme to leave fic prompts, feel free!

*I 100% agree with whoever said they disagree with my Firefly characterizations. I do too now, lol.

(Did I do some overwhelmed and delighted heavy breathing when I saw who wrote Yuletide gifts this year? YOU BET I DID. *________________*)

I wrote two things for Yuletide!

Each In Its Own Way for [ profile] silksieve
Roman Holiday (1953) (Princess Ann/Joe Bradley); G; 3100 words

Maybe derailed trains and bar brawls weren't the most glamourous of subjects to cover, but Joe Bradley was back in New York at last. Somebody up there was looking out for him. He had a steady gig at the Brooklyn Eagle, complete with a desk and a telephone and a press card to hang out of his coat pocket should the need ever arise. He typed up his little items of general interest and filched matches from the editor's desk, both of their feet kicked up as they lied to each other about all the generous and beautiful women they'd known.

Well, almost all of them.

Post-canon fix-it that I wish I could have made about 17000x longer. I LOVE THIS MOVIE SO MUCH THEY TOOK IT OFF NETFLIX AND I'M GUTTED EVEN THOUGH I OWN IT.

We Just Decided To for [ profile] hellolamppost17
Go On (TV) (Lauren, Steven, Ryan; kind of Lauren/Steven-ish); G; 1800 words

Lauren tried not to panic. This was do-able. She could still totally do this. She could get out of the wedding. They hadn't exhausted all the options yet. "You know what? You can't tell him. I can't tell him. This is a sign from the universe! I'm going to have to cheat on him."

"That's— Um. Is that really the only option left here?"

Goes AU during Lauren's bachelorette party in 1x21. It's John Cho's cheekbones' fault! I had a lot of fun writing this, even as I successfully fought the urge to put a bunch of Eli Manning jokes in (TOO SOON!!!).
ishie: (fandom:breakfast at tiffany's // get up)
Sure, fine, state of the union things are an in-the-new-year/looking-forward thing. Let's do it like it's not.

I'm not doing any amnesty fic dumps this year. Everything that would have been included is destined to be reworked for other pieces, so.

2013 in writing )

ishie: (fandom:leverage // &hardisonnnnnnn;)
Ugh, December. So let's try this for January!

Pick a date below and give me a topic. It can be anything from fandom-related to irl to pizza preferences to whatever you want.

They will probably be brief, or not, depending on the subject.

Also, I reserve the right to decline prompts that I don't feel equipped to meet.

Topics: you can get an idea from my tags/from the stuff I usually ramble about/from things you maybe wish I talked about more but don't.
I'm carrying over all the ones I didn't get to this month. (I'm so sorry.)

January )

&you guys;

ishie: (music:springsteen // baby it's cold out)
Whether you're celebrating Christmas and/or Yuletide or just having another day, I hope you all have a lovely one. The year got progressively not-good for me irl but being online with you guys makes everything seem better, even when it's just me whining and you not telling me to shut up already ♥♥♥
ishie: (fandom:hannibal // what do you see)
Will Graham; for [personal profile] lulabo


I mean, I have other thoughts, like about how TV!Will differs from book!Will in really interesting ways that actually deepen the character, and how TV!Will's relationships with both Hannibal and Alana are so complicated, and how he feels like an almost-fully realized character in a way that I don't get in most of my other shows, but. BUT. WHY IS NO ONE HELPING WILL GRAHAM. I don't remember being this nervous about anything in the Hannibalverse since Jame Gumm dropped the business card and I spent the ENTIRE SEASON basically SHITTING MYSELF.
