[sticky post] Fanworks List

Update, June 2013: Dudes, I am super lazy about updating this, and AO3 is way more navigable than this mess of a list. If you want to find fic on my journal, the tagging system should have your back (or leave a comment and I will help you find the fic!).

Since fanfiction and fanart are basically the only things I post, here's a list. I realize you could just go through my tags, but I hate doing that on other people's journals, so why should I make anyone else?

List, list, list.Collapse )


Hello, author! I am so psyched for Yuletide and I'm hoping you are too, because we have matched and thus you have EXCELLENT taste.

concert post: The O'My's and Movits!

This is a really late concert post - last Wednesday I went to see Movits! and it was AMAZING.

So, yeah. Overall amazing, definitely recommend either band if they ever make it to your area.

I have officially survived my big exam. I have probably passed? I won't know for a while, but unless I massively screwed up in some way I have no idea about, a fail is kind of unlikely.

Immediately after my exam I went for drinks, went to a baseball game, went home, slept in until noon, did errands on Saturday and then got drenched on my way to a fencing thing, went home and slept again, had people over today and fed people great stirfry. So I'm feeling like a success.

Although I totally blew off any and all work this weekend. I need to get on that.

(Also I told several people I would catch up on Who this weekend and IMMEDIATELY chickened out, haha. But I watched the Ace Attorney movie instead and did a brief tumblr review.)

Fencing-wise, things are going GREAT so far, maybe mostly because my competing has been minimal and my administrative/coaching things have been high. I had a great time at the ref seminar and learned a LOT, and I think we might have a full sabre team for the college competitions? SO EXCITED. I can't believe that I haven't fenced with a full women's team since Spring 2012, I miss it so much. (Someday I will post my rant about why mixed-gender fencing is both a good thing and a terrible thing for women in fencing, but for now I will save it for the people who have the misfortune to ask me about it in real life.)

what is grad school. what is life

If you're wondering, I've been scarce because I have my second prelim (master's exam) in exactly 10 days and am waffling between panic, preparation, and fencing a lot and ignoring my impending doom. It will be fine! It will be fine. I feel a lot better now that I have written 3 pages of one of my essays and feel like I sort of know what I'm talking about.

Also I am the recruitment officer for the school's fencing club so there has been a lot of... important fencing things that I couldn't blow off, not just practice. And our coach is extremely not present so far, and I've been taking up a lot of leading practice + coaching sabre + trying really hard to figure out fencing-relevant ASL so I can communicate with one of the new fencers.


Buuuut this has not stopped me from going to another baseball game and signing up to go to a referee clinic and writing 9,000 words of Great Mouse Detective fic (which I will finish editing SOON). So maybe I am exaggerating my stressed-ness because it is midnight. Basically I should go to bed.

Good night!

Commentary: Change in Engagement

[personal profile] aralias asked me if I could do a commentary on Change of Engagement, my By the Sword roadtrip fic. Here it is! There's a lot of it - less commentary than fic, which is good, but still a lot. And mostly it is babbling about fencing and By the Sword, rather than much insight to my writing process, haha.

nail art prompts

I'm asking for nail art prompts over on tumblr, and I didn't want to leave y'all out! It was just easier to get pics of past nails/what nail polish I have up there. Basically, I paint my nails a lot and I'm running out of ideas and I will take ANYTHING - prompts/suggestions/cryptic phrases that I must attempt to translate into some kind of nails thing. You can leave me a prompt here or on tumblr, whichever is more convenient for you!

the tumblr digest

Hello! Tomorrow I am driving back to grad school land where I will be doing mostly things that I've already been doing here, except with more in-personness and less Skype. Woo.

I've posted a couple things to tumblr lately, but I figured I'd cross-post the links here, at least!

First, I made Kate Beaton themed fanart for The Great Mouse Detective/Tricky and Wicked, Of Course, which you can see here. That link also has a rec for Tricky and Wicked, a Basil/Ratigan fic that I LOVE, you should def check it out.

Second, I got a tattoo! I wanted this exact tattoo when I graduated college 2.5 years ago, but I was convinced not to do it and spent all that time longing and now it has happened. It's a geeky stats tattoo, and I am half tempted to turn that shoulder into a blackboard-proxy now. Although it'll probably take we another 2.5 years to psych myself up for another tattoo.

Third, I got to visit tweedymcgee last week! It was really great and we did fencing things. In case you ever wonder if I am a person of just some sort of internet data-being, you can now ask tweedymcgee for verification.

I think that's it! Wish me luck for two days of driving.

Fic: Try, Try Again

Here is the fic I've been working on for the last month! It doesn't fill any of my left-over idfic summer bingo squares, because apparently I am being consumed by a different kind of id lately.

Try, Try Again

Marvel Comics/Agent X and Deadpool
Rating: teen
(Kissing, swearing, canon-typical violence)
Characters: Taskmaster, Deadpool
Wordcount: 12,000ish
Summary: Taskmaster has lost his weapons, his mask, and an increasing amount of his memory. Good thing Deadpool's here to help. Wait, bad thing. I meant bad thing.
A/N: Basically, I got really excited about the idea that Taskmaster's photographic reflexes could push out declarative memory. Then I read the 2010 miniseries and realized that it'd been done, haha. But I'd already written 10,000 words, so here it is anyway! 12k of Deadpool and Taskmaster and memory loss shenanigans. Just roll with it, I guess, and don't expect much compliance with any of the 2010-on canon.

Read it on the AO3! This entry was originally posted at Comment wherever you want.


fic post double-header!

Two fics for you! I am phasing out posting fics direct to LJ, which is sad, but was also a lot of work. It is just links to AO3 now, but you can always comment on these announcement posts if you don't want to comment there.

Fic one is Doctor Who!

A Fleeting Passion for Facial Hair
Doctor Who
Rating: gen
Characters: Multi-era Doctor and Master, Amy
Wordcount: 1,500ish
Summary: A very serious multi-era fic about the Master's beards.
A/N: Originally written for aralias' Katyzine, now slightly edited and reposted.

Read it on the AO3!

Fic two is for a webcomic called Widdershins which I adore and you should definitely check out:

No Handholds in Water
Rating: gen
Characters: Jack O'Malley and Heinrich Wolfe
Wordcount: 1,000ish
Summary: Despite Mal's best arguments, walking around in the rain is not an adequate substitute for a good bath.
(Write the platonic bathing fic you want to see in the world, that's what I always say.)
A/N: Takes place in the gap between page 46 and 47 of Green-Eyed Monster.

This is also on the AO3! This entry was originally posted at Comment wherever you want.
