Well, I missed the [community profile] trope_bingo posting period again this year, so I'm trying to finish up a line for the amnesty period.

New HP fic, written for Secret Skraw, which very nominally fills the food and drink square!

On the Other Side
Harry Potter (Harry & Luna, hints of OT4); G; 2100 words

Future fic, epilogue compliant!

"I can wait for another table if you'd rather not share," he offered. Never mind that this one gave him a perfect view of the entrance of the building opposite. He could get around an obstructed view, of course. Especially now that he had the mobile fresh from Arthur Weasley's tinkering. Having to make awkward conversation with a stranger could make the whole affair monumentally more difficult.

"Oh, no, please! Sit, Harry."

"Thanks." He'd already plopped in the seat before the use of his name registered. It took a moment for him to flounder out a response. He hadn't been this sloppy in years. "Wait, erm, I mean, who?"

The menu dropped, revealing Luna Lovegood with a more pointed smile than she usually wore.

I wrote another fic this year! It's a miracle!

First, though, I got a fic, too. Thanks, [community profile] crossovering!

Once Upon A Time, by [archiveofourown.org profile] thedevilchicken which is an ASOIAF (Sansa/Sandor) AU story mashed up with MY FAVORITE FAIRY TALE as well as some amazing mythology/folk tales that I am not going to tell you what they are so you can enjoy the unfolding. LOVE IT.

And I wrote for [archiveofourown.org profile] fleurlb, which was way too much fun:

A Bunch of Punxsutawney Phils
Veronica Mars, Harry Potter, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Supernatural, Mad Men crossover; gen with established R/Hr; PG; 8200 words
Consider for a moment that in the fall of 2004, the following things are true: Keith Mars wants to distract Veronica from digging up dirt on Jake Kane; in a bunker in Indiana four women are trying to survive the scarypocalypse; after years of bickering Ron and Hermione have finally married; and Dean Winchester is out in the world somewhere, doing whatever it is that he does.

Now consider that—somehow—all of these people will wind up following the same ponytailed weirdo.

My full [community profile] trope_bingo card for the year is over this way. This accidentally filled the wanted poster space!
ishie: (fandom:doctor // &donna;)
I've been working a lot this year on original fic (not as much as I'd like, but still), and I find that I miss working on fanfic! So: signed or signing up for exchanges through the end of the year (HEY YO YULETIDE), trying to tackle some of the woefully overdue Tumblr prompts people were kind enough to give, and [community profile] trope_bingo!

I've even managed to fill my first square with a Dragon Age II fic!!

The Usual Suspects
f!Hawke/Varric, Aveline; modern heist AU (with magic!); 3200 words; T/PG-13
trope square: kiss

oh yeah

In case you don't follow me elsewhere, I posted new fic! Toooooooooootally obsessed with Fargo btw. WHO ELSE IS WATCHING IT SO THEY CAN COME TALK TO ME AND [personal profile] weasleytook ABOUT IT FOREVER AND EVER

Fandom: Fargo (2014)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Gus Grimly/Molly Solverson
Characters: Molly Solverson, Greta Grimly

I'M GOING TO GET THIS TROPE BINGO LINE IF IT KILLS ME

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/

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.
ishie: (fandom:30 rock // get him away from me!!)
I'M DOING [livejournal.com 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—

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!

(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 [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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.

END OF YEAR FEEDBACK MEME

OH, AND.

It's ... been a while. This hasn't been a good writing year for me by any stretch of the imagination.

He bowed, his braid falling free to dangle over one shoulder. The girl's skin darkened with a fast-moving blush.

"Wait!" she cried, hurrying around the desk to pluck at the sleeve of his robes, and pressed something small and smooth into his open hand.

Reflex had his fingers grip it tightly before his brain had a chance to react. His breath caught in his throat; panic started to tighten his chest. He stepped away from her, quickly, already reeling. Her fingers were hot against his skin, almost scalding, as though she were burning inside.

"It's for luck, just, just keep it with you, please, Gatherer. Remember me."


Okay, I don't know how many that is. It isn't six! Lol counting.

Now someone hypnotize me into believing these gift fics aren't total shit so I can get them done okay thanks.

ishie: (fandom:hannibal // what do you see)
Hey I finally finished a fic!

Taste Them In My Teeth: Hannibal; female!Hannibal Lecter; 2700 words

Now to ... Uh. Words will magically show up in the rest of my WIP folders now, right? :D?

Alsooooo:

  1. I really need to get back to cooking on a regular basis & carrying lunches to work. Anyone have freezable/portionable recipes they like?


  2. BOOKS REC ME BOOKS I HAVEN'T READ ANYTHING IN SO LONG (but I started the Grisha trilogy tonight and it's really great!)
ishie: (fandom:army of darkness // boomstick bb)
Six for Sunday time! Except not, I'm super-blocked on the VEEP fic. Like, it's not really at a good point to stop and have it be an actual story and my brain thinks there's more possible, but my brain also thinks, nope, we're done, good night! Then refuses to work on anything but outlining the thing I'm going to be racing through on vacation, so that's excellent and awful.

So instead here's the first lines of all my in-progress/stalled stuff because that was a thing that I saw going around or possibly that I made up and we'll pretend any of these will be finished ever!

  1. The thing is, no one is supposed to actually give a damn about what is or is not—or was, or was not—potentially ever happening inside Amy's uterus.

  2. Sansa all but floated from the gallery, hope taking wing in her once more after being so long stifled.

  3. The Wolfswood gave way abruptly to a cleared field less than a day's ride from Winterfell.

  4. The water was warm, even after sitting overnight in the chilly seaside air, and sour.

  5. In the grand scheme of things, following someone you hardly knew and could barely stand halfway across the state to take them up on a job offer was ... a pretty great idea?

  6. It was supposed to be different in Honeyhall, and it was, until tonight.

  7. The wood took the spark and ignited, curls of smoke winding up through the thick, humid air.

  8. New York City was... It was dirty, was what it was.

  9. "My dear boy, you didn't think I'd allow anyone else to dictate terms to me, did you?"

  10. Sam was neck-deep in the pool, treading water and blinking chlorinated drops out of his eyes as Mandy King stretched her arms over her head and bounced on the high dive.

  11. The days got longer and the sun brighter, but nothing burned off the cold.

  12. The bend of the creek was still warm from the sun where Ruth waded in to wash the blood from her legs.

Each Sunday, post six sentences from a writing project — published, submitted, in progress, for your cat — whatever.
In short, Amy swallowed her own sense of personal dignity—nothing new there—to take the heat for Selina, and that was fucking that. It should have been the smoothest thing she's managed to pull off since she wrangled Selina's way into the President's camp and onto the ticket, but nope. Nope. The gods reached down from on high and smacked her right in her stupid smug face one more time, just to show her they could.

Amy didn't just run screaming out of Bumpkinville yesterday. She's been around long enough to recognize that there's one thing that remains constant in Washington, no matter how many screaming matches erupt on the ever-growing horror show that is the American news media.


This is from the VEEP fic I need to finish before the new season starts and totally josses the plausible parts. But the end is NOT COOPERATING.
ishie: (Default)
I need to a) finish this VEEP fic I've been working on forever >:( b) start my scifi big bang thing. I signed up with the vague idea of a scifi!AU of Elementary, or maybe finishing that Star Trek!BBT thing I started a million years ago, or maybe the space race!SGA AU. But, uh, wow. Nope. Nothing. Nothing.

I drove all the way to where my class was tonight (GOT THERE EARLY, EVEN) and then basically completely fell apart and didn't make it inside the building because: parking. PARKING. I didn't bring money to PAY FOR PARKING because I am the biggest moron in the world and then I panicked. As per usual.

And my interview was really enjoyable and fun but the impression I got at the end was they weren't interested in going further.

And I did something totally fucked up to one of my toes today. TRIPLE UGH.

Anyway. Two fics this weekend. IDK if I posted these before but even if I did, here they are again! DEALWITHIT.GIF

A Little World Made Cunningly: ASOIAF; Elaena Targaryen; pre-series; ~1300 words

Be Drowned No More: ASOIAF; Sansa(/Sandor-ish?), Bran; post-ADWD; 2500 words

If I were better at everything this might have made a bingo on my [community profile] trope_bingo card but, well, see above.
