WIP Update!

FINISHED AND POSTED:
  • The Maternal Instincts of Betas, the Scott/Allison story in the a/b/o 'verse, which finishes out that 'verse nicely!
  • Your Soul on a Plate, a Scott/Allison Top Chef AU
  • Quadratic Functions, a sexy continuation of the TW College OT4

Working on:
  • Lydia/Erica short futurefic for the dancing-and-hiking series, for TW femslash week in early August
  • [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang: AU with all the ladies, building on some hipster AU snippets I wrote a while back. 10,000-word draft due 27 Aug; final due 15 Oct; posting starts 18 Oct.
  • [livejournal.com profile] teenwolf_bb: Scott/Allison 1970s LA musicians AU. 15,000-word draft due 17 Sept; final due 16 Nov; posting starts 1 Dec.

Future:
  • TW hipsters? I'm not sure if this is getting written but if it is, it's moving to Brooklyn, and it's going to be more vignette-like. Possibly just, a series of parties/meals. One reason I kept putting it off is that I couldn't work out a plot, so I might just let it … not have one.
  • I've recently considered writing a Scott/Allison standalone in the Little House 'verse. Prequel, I think.
  • Maybe Derek and Lydia scenes from the college OT4? (Why do I do this? When will I learn that I have a pathological need to represent all sides of a romance in my stories?)
  • Lydia/Erica indie porn (short)
  • STBB doesn't seem to be happening this year, so I'm shelving the Spock/Uhura Liza-with-a-Z AU
  • HP Seamus/Dean rest of my ff100 claim: 55 left but drabbles count and I do have a few longer fics that have been floating around my mind for a while.


I had a bit of a writer's block this spring, alas! The college OT4 was originally planned for Multiamory March but I'm not sure that event happened. I was also hoping to have April be Allison Argent month, but the Scott-is-a-beta fic just kept growing. And despite deciding to write another longish TW fic, I'm still feeling like I'm wrapping things up in that fandom. I'm glad that I'm writing some Scott/Allison for TWBB, though, since I've already written Stiles/Derek and Lydia/Erica in previous years. Anyone who follows my writing knows I like to feel balance-y, and with Betas and the Top Chef fic and this and the possible LIttle House fic I'll be catching Scott and Allison up to something closer to what I've produced for Lydia/Erica and Stiles/Derek.

I'm excited that I'm going to be writing Marvel again! Last summer getting just a dose of Pepper felt unfinished, and I'm glad I waited because I got not only the Natasha I needed but also Jane, Darcy, Sif, Melinda, Skye, Jemma and a little Peggy. The MBB fic will be setting up a universe in which they'll all appear but it will probably take a LOT more fics than that to get all their stories told. The idea of setting up a long, wide-ranging, multi-story AU told entirely from female POVs has me pretty excited, I'm not going to lie.

some HP fic tables

I think I needed a little mindless occupational-type therapy the other day and I was excited about finally finishing that final Parvati/Pansy story. So I made my HP fic into a bunch of tables. These are likely of interest only to me, but eh, it's my journal.

I'd wanted to bring Parvati/Pansy up to the equal number of stories as Harry/Hermione and Draco/Ginny, and I've always liked taking different ships and writing similar themes for them to see how it changes. Here's a chart showing the 12 stories I wrote for each of these ships as well as Seamus/Dean (more on them later):

HP major ships fic table )

There were a few "leftover" fics for the ships I've written a little less of, so I put those into a chart, too. Lily doesn't quite fit, but it isn't entirely a mess, though this does make me want to write a schmoop bingo for Lily/James even though I blacked out my card long ago. Oh, organization!

HP minor ships fic table )

And then finally, what I still have to write for HP: finishing my [livejournal.com profile] fanfic100 Seamus/Dean claim. I think the comm is dead, and the person who was sort of acting as owner kicked a bunch of people off and then wandered off, weirdly, so I'm not exactly official anymore but whatever, I'm still doing the challenge. SO THERE! Chapters count, as do drabbles. I have 55 left of the challenge. The orange are squares I'm not sure about yet; the purple is for stories I've written but not yet posted; the green is for prompts I'm planning drabble series for. This chart will migrate to the WIP post later.

WIP Update!

FINISHED AND POSTED:
  • You Make Me Live, TW Scott&Allison&Lydia&Stiles for TWGenuary
  • The Willow Turns Her Back, HP Pansy/Millicent for Femslash February

Working on:
  • Multiamory March: Various sexy fic for the TW College OT4
  • The Maternal Instincts of Betas, the Scott/Allison story in the a/b/o 'verse.

Future:
  • Scott/Allison Top Chef AU
  • Lydia/Erica short fics: indie porn thing and a futurefic; also possible Where We Ought to Be coda
  • Idea for this year's STBB: Spock/Uhura Liza-with-a-Z AU
  • Idea for this year's MBB: Sex and the City AU will all the ladies, building on some hipster AU snippets I wrote a while back
  • HP Seamus/Dean rest of my ff100 claim: 55 left but drabbles count and I do have a few longer fics that have been floating around my mind for a while.


I finally got that Pansy/Millicent fic done, which has been on the WIP list in one form or another since mid-2010! This means all the femslash I was planning for HP is complete, and that everything on the list above, with the exception of the S/D, was conceived of no earlier than last year. Now I just need to finish up the Seamus/Dean claim and thanks to the tag on tumblr I've been feeling quite Seamus/Dean'ish of late!

Planned OT4 college AU ficlets will do well for Multiamory March (if that's still happening?) so that's got next. Also I think April will be Allison Argent month in these parts and my goal is to get those two Scott/Allison fics posted then. After that it's long stuff and some TW cleanup.

It's good. I'm feeling very finish-y. Closing doors, opening windows.

FINISHED (AND POSTED):
  • Martin and Reyes, Lydia/Erica buddy cop AU for [livejournal.com profile] teenwolf_bb
  • Pulling On All Your Threads, Lydia/Erica Project Runway AU
  • A Saucer of Milk, Melinda May story for Yuletide

Working on:
  • TWGenuary: Scott, Allison, Stiles, and Lydia road trip fic in the same 'verse as Dancing & Hiking / Baking & Waiting.
  • The Maternal Instincts of Betas, the Scott/Allison story in the a/b/o 'verse.

Future:
  • Teen Wolf SF hipsters AU
  • Femslash February: HP Pansy/Millicent school time fic. (also, lots of recs.)
  • Multiamory March: Various sexy fic for the TW College OT4
  • Scott/Allison Top Chef AU
  • Lydia/Erica indie porn thing; possible futurefic
  • Idea for next year's STBB: Spock/Uhura Liza-with-a-Z AU
  • Idea for next year's MBB: Sex and the City AU will all the ladies, building on some hipster AU snippets I wrote a while back
  • HP Seamus/Dean rest of my ff100 claim: Maybe I should just write one Seamus/Dean story every month until I finish this up. I have 55 left but drabbles count and I do have one longer fic that has been floating around my mind for a while.

I'm getting that backed-up feeling again even though there really isn't that much on this list. It's been longer and had older stuff on it in the recent past. But I haven't been writing as much in the past month or so, and I'm feeling that need to clear the decks. I'm hoping that will lead to some productivity this month!

WIP Update!

FINISHED (AND POSTED):
  • The Chance to Come Through, Derek/Stiles So You Think You Can Dance AU I wrote for the Spring Fling dance-fic fest on Tumblr
  • Kiss Me, I'm a Lycanthrope, Derek/Stiles fluff about customized gifts.
  • Couldn't Have One Without the Other, the TW Little House AU.
  • Arrives Without a Suitcase, written for [livejournal.com profile] abo_bigbang Further adventures in the TW a/b/o'verse, mostly: babies.
  • Original story can be found in the anthology Puzzle Box


Fall writing requires a plan!
  • Lydia/Erica [livejournal.com profile] teenwolf_bb, final due 20 November, posts in December. [personal profile] radioaches suggested a SHIELD AU that morphed in my brain into something more The Heat-inspired.
  • Lydia/Erica Project Runway AU! See, the road trip fic was going to be fashion oriented, but now I can just do some straight-up fashion. Started for TWfemslash week.
  • Various sexy fic for the College OT4 (I have eight planned right now) that I might write in November for the TW rare pairs thing.
  • The Maternal Instincts of Betas, the Scott/Allison story in the a/b/o 'verse, about 9000 words.
  • Teen Wolf SF hipsters AU—I need to stop postponing this and actually write it
  • Scott/Allison Top Chef AU?
  • Yuletide! And my prompt is awesome!


Setting aside for now:
  • Idea for next year's STBB: Spock/Uhura Liza-with-a-Z AU
  • Idea for next year's MBB: Sex and the City AU will all the ladies
  • Thought for next year's TWBB: Scott/Allison still-wolves AU of some sort
  • Lydia/Erica coda to the Sound of Music AU (?)
  • HP Pansy/Millicent school time which I really should just knock out at some point
  • Avengers hipster AU—maybe this would be a good starting place for next year's MBB?
  • HP Seamus/Dean rest of my ff100 claim


I haven't posted one of these in a while mostly because all my writing plans kept falling through this spring/summer. The Little House AU took up a lot more bandwidth than I was expecting; the Star Trek and Iron Man movies weren't as inspiring as I was hoping. I dropped out of the Marvel BB when I realized that I didn't actually want to write a high school AU. I want to see all the ladies in Thor and the new Cap movie and then write something with all the ladies for next year.

My schedule for the fall writing is something like:
October: Lydia and Erica
November: Scott and Allison, OT4, maybe start hipsters?
December: Yuletide, hipsters?

Let's hope I can stick to it!

Three years later: twenty-five stories in nine fandoms and a little over 52,000 words! Ten boyslash, eight femslash, five het and two OT4 (MMFF); twelve stories with characters of color. My pencil is down, proudly.

I'm REALLY sad that the Star Trek Big Bang drafts are due end of August, because I have an idea but I've already got a LOT to do. Why are all the big bangs due at the same time? Seriously, a month later and I'd be totally writing about dancers and divas and matchmaking in 1973 New York.
  • Little House AU is nearly done, will probably be 60,000 words or so.
  • Original story that's based on fic, sort of? It's hard to explain, but 5000 words are due 30 June.
  • The Maternal Instincts of Betas, the Scott/Allison story in the a/b/o 'verse, about 9000 words. Should be written before the bigbang but we'll see if that happens.
  • [livejournal.com profile] abo_bigbang Further adventures in the TW a/b/o'verse, mostly: babies. 10,000-word draft due 1 Aug.
  • [livejournal.com profile] teenwolfbigbang Lydia/Erica road trip AU. 15,000-word draft due 17 Aug.
  • [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang Avengers high school AU. 80% of 10,000-word draft due 28 Aug.
  • Lydia/Erica coda to the Sound of Music AU
  • Teen Wolf SF hipsters AU: Fall
Setting aside for now:
  • HP Pansy/Millicent school time
  • Avengers hipster AU—a series of vignettes; want to do maybe three more
  • HP Seamus/Dean rest of my ff100 claim

WIP Update!

FINISHED AND POSTED:
  • Scott/Allison consent square for [community profile] kink_bingo: Distracting posted 2 April! Goes with my previous Teen Wolf [community profile] kink_bingo fics, Distractions (Lydia/Erica, phone sex) and Distracted (Derek/Stiles, wild card).
  • Seamus/Dean waxplay square for [community profile] kink_bingo: Feel Your Way posted 1 April!
WITH THE BETAS:
  • Avengers Clint/Natasha/Pepper/Coulson whipping/flogging square for [community profile] kink_bingo: Our Thing
  • Inception Ariadne/Yusuf worship square for [community profile] kink_bingo: In the Driver's Seat
  • HP Pansy/Parvati medical (massage) square for [community profile] kink_bingo: A Little Something Extra
  • HP Draco/Ginny painplay square for [community profile] kink_bingo: Homegrown
  • HP Pansy/Parvati/Luna/Tonks gangbang square for [community profile] kink_bingo: All In
That's right, I have FINISHED my blackout of my [community profile] kink_bingo card! EXCITEMENT, also RELIEF.

I am not finishing all this Teen Wolf before the season starts but since it's all AUs I don't really mind. Also my fellow Erica and Lydia/Erica fans have encouraged me to keep writing them even though Erica won't be on the show, so, onwards!
  • Little House AU continues apace! The draft is about 17,000 words and a little less than half done I think? I can't quite tell. It's a lot bigger than I thought it would be, and is proving to be the usual Clio multiship ensemble nonsense. Needs to get done in the next couple of weeks or it's going to get pushed way back.
  • Lydia/Erica coda to my TWBB will hopefully be fairly short!
  • Scott/Allison beta story in the a/b/o 'verse should be about 9000 words. Late May?
  • Original story that's based on fic, sort of? It's hard to explain, but due end of June.
  • Further adventures in a/b/o'verse, mostly: babies, for [livejournal.com profile] abo_bigbang. 10,000-word draft due 1 Aug. June?
  • Lydia/Erica road trip AU will be written for [livejournal.com profile] teenwolfbigbang. 15,000-word draft due 17 Aug. July?
  • Avengers high school AU—doing it for [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang! 80% of 10,000-word draft due 28 Aug. August?
  • SF hipsters AU got pushed back by the growth of the Little House story and writing that College OT4. But at least I already know it will be the usual Clio multiship ensemble nonsense. Fall, apparently, with all these summer big bangs.
Setting aside for now:
  • HP Pansy/Millicent school time
  • Avengers hipster AU—a series of vignettes; want to do maybe three more
  • HP Seamus/Dean rest of my ff100 claim

WIP Update!

FINISHED AND POSTED:
  • Erica/Lydia three-story arc: The Last Thing I Was Dreaming Of, Control of the Game, and The Fun Was in the Capture all posted 28 Feb for Femslash February!
  • College AU OT4: Completing the Square posted 20 Mar!
So remember how I said last month that I was excited to be writing things closer to when I thought of them? That College OT4 was written off a twitter conversation from three weeks ago.

Teen Wolf stories I probably won't entirely finish before the new season starts 3 June:
  • "Little House" AU will not be OT4 after all, as it made it too complicated AND I think I got my OT4 needs out with the College AU. I think it's going to be about 15,000 words? Something like that. It's started well at least!
  • SF hipsters AU will take up April if I don't lose my nerve to write it
  • Lydia/Erica coda to my TWBB
  • Scott/Allison beta story in the a/b/o 'verse
  • Lydia/Erica road trip AU
Setting aside for now:
  • HP Pansy/Millicent school time
  • Avengers hipster AU—a series of vignettes; want to do maybe three more
  • Avengers high school AU—possibly for next year's Marvel BB?

FINISHED AND POSTED:
  • [livejournal.com profile] inception_bang Ariadne/Yusuf Vegas AU: Sustenance, Merriment and Cheer posted 6 Feb!
  • Derek POV of the a/b/o 'verse: The Mating Rituals of Alphas posted 31 Jan!

With the posting of the Inception story, I've now finally finished that entire giant backlog of stories that had been floating around my brain for literally YEARS: the HP sequel that I'd thought about back in '05, the Chapel/Rand Radcliffe story that I conceived of back when I wrote the Kirk/McCoy Harvard story in fall '09, this Inception story that I came up with around the end of '10. Now I'm writing stories very close to when I think of them, and my list is SO MUCH SHORTER you guys. It's really exciting to be able to react this quickly, though I'm probably always going to be the kind of writer who thinks about things for a while before I put pen to paper.

Deadline: none!!! Maybe, May 17, since that's when Star Trek comes out and will likely completely overwhelm my life? Or mid-June, when kink bingo amnesty ends. After all those big bangs in 2012 it's nice to move at my own pace.

Teen Wolf stories I probably won't entirely finish before May:
  • Erica/Lydia + Allison three-story mirror to the Derek/Stiles + Scott stories, will include hiking and clubbing, for Femslash February!
  • SF hipsters AU, which is finally forming in my head
  • "Little House" AU, which will be OT4 Lydia/Erica/Derek/Stiles
  • Lydia/Erica coda to my TWBB
  • Scott/Allison beta story in the a/b/o 'verse

  • [livejournal.com profile] yuletide [prompt redacted, but it's femslash!]: post by 20 December Have concept, now need to write!
  • [livejournal.com profile] space_wrapped Jim/Bones in the Paris 20s AU: post on 24 December Draft done and ready for beta!
  • [livejournal.com profile] inception_bang Ariadne/Yusuf Vegas AU: post in late January Draft completed! Will edit after the holidays then send to beta
December is about writing Yuletide and revising the Vegas AU, and maybe doing some more kink bingo when I feel stuck.

In the hopper for the spring, a lot of Teen Wolf:
  • SF hipsters AU is the priority because it'll be tricky and take some doing as I want to write a good old-fashioned ensemble multiple POV multiple romance all the feels people make each other better fic, like EWFS or the WWII story.
  • Derek POV in the Stiles courts through baking/Scott is an awesome friend series
  • Derek POV of the Lydia/Erica a/b/o 'verse
  • Lydia/Erica shorter sequel to my TWBB
  • Possible Erica/Lydia + Allison three-story mirror to the Derek/Stiles + Scott stories
Basically I think my problem is that I crave all this balance when I'm writing fic. I write a scenario for one ship, I want to try it out for a bunch more. It's like some sort of weird urge that gets me back into these places where I have these long lists of stuff I want to write—which for now is making Derek/Stiles and Lydia/Erica into this massive mirror of each other.

Setting aside for now:
  • HP Pansy/Millicent school time
  • Avengers hipster AU—becoming a series of vignettes
  • Avengers high school AU—maybe next year's Marvel BB?
  • HP Seamus/Dean rest of my ff100 claim

Kink bingo, before June 15, 2013:
  • Avengers Clint/Natasha/Pepper/Coulson whipping/flogging (started)
  • Suits Harvey/Mike consent play

  • HP Pansy/Parvati medical (massage, pulling from an old abandoned fic)
  • HP Draco/Ginny painplay
  • HP Pansy/Parvati/Luna/Tonks gangbang

The Ships We Sail!

So as not to bury the lede like I usually do:

The Ships We Sail, an independently published anthology of stories available for the digital reader of your choice for $3! For which I wrote a story!

I'll let our esteemed editor [personal profile] pts explain:
It occurred to us one bourbon-seasoned afternoon in March that Kissing and Adventure make really excellent partners—you know, in stories. And we thought to ourselves how grand it would be to assemble an anthology of fiction dedicated to making that case.


So the title "The Ships We Sail" is a "we're on a boat, pun intended" kind of situation, but there are lots of different kinds of boats, like space ships and air ships and gambling ships, and there's also lots of different kinds of kissing, which I'll leave to you to discover. So if you like lots of different kinds of things, you will find this is a thing that you like.

Seven stories, all super fantastic, by great writers like [personal profile] sistermagpie and [personal profile] ali_wildgoose. At the above link you can read story excerpts, buy from Amazon or Apple or direct from the publisher, and then you can guess which story is mine! Also you'll be supporting independent publishing, which is a truly awesome thing.

I'm so excited about this project, thrilled to have been asked to be a small part of it, and proud of Paul for all his hard work in seeing this through. So, you know, check it out!

WIP Update!

Five weeks, lots of stuff!

FINISHED AND POSTED:
  • Do You Want It On Your Biscuits, Baby, Teen Wolf: Derek/Stiles from a TFLN prompt and a prequel to the Scott is an Awesome friend story.
  • Fanmix for [livejournal.com profile] withthepilot's awesome [livejournal.com profile] startrekbigbang fic
  • Loose and Tight in All the Right Places, Avengers: Pepper/Natasha rock band AU for [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang
  • The Migratory Patterns of Omegas, Teen Wolf: Lydia/Erica omegaverse for [livejournal.com profile] a_b_o_ladies

Complete, posting next week because I don't know why I haven't already and hey, thanksgiving!:
  • Community Shirley/Jeff virginity/celibacy kink bingo
  • White Collar Diana/El obedience kink bingo
  • HP Harry/Hermione nipple play kink bingo
  • HP Seamus/Dean bondage kink bingo
  • Suits Harvey/Mike I wrote for a frottage meme at [livejournal.com profile] bulletproof_fic last week
  • TW In Which Scott Is an Awesome Friend, Mostly, which has been hanging around on tumblr and needs to just be beta'd and posted already
  • TW short fics on tumblr: Allison nursing; Stiles is a hot young thing in a hot car; Derek is super tactile; but probably not that knotting thing because it needs actual work and expansion and consideration and stuff.

Deadlines:
  • [livejournal.com profile] teenwolf_bb Derek/Stiles sort-of Sound of Music AU: post in late December Completed draft with beta and artist yay!
  • [livejournal.com profile] inception_bang Ariadne/Yusuf Vegas AU: draft (12 of 15K) due 5 December; post in late January
  • [livejournal.com profile] yuletide [prompt redacted, but it's femslash!]: post by 20 December
  • [livejournal.com profile] space_wrapped Jim/Bones in the Paris 20s AU: post on 24 December

Which means:
  • November: revise TWBB, write Vegas
  • December: revise Vegas, write Yuletide and space wrapped
  • when I get annoyed: poke at kink bingo

In the hopper for the spring:
  • TW SF hipsters AU
  • HP Pansy/Millicent school time
  • Avengers hipster AU--shaping up to be a series of vingettes
  • Avengers high school AU--might also end up being vignette-y or just a lot shorter than I'd thought.
  • Avengers Clint is a tailor AU--this is a concept with no plot to speak of, so I'm not sure it's actually going to happen
I'm obviously pruning this--I took out the Harvey/Mike matchmaking for Jessica idea because it was really just one long meta joke, which sounds funnier in your head than on the page. I'd rather write some Donna/Rachel.

Kink bingo, before June 15, 2013:
  • Avengers Clint/Natasha/Pepper/Coulson whipping/flogging (started)
  • Suits Harvey/Mike collar (started)
  • Suits Harvey/Mike consent play

WIP Update!

All right let's do this.

FINISHED AND POSTED:
  • Distractions, Teen Wolf: Lydia/Erica for the "phone sex" square on my kink bingo card.
  • Distracted, Teen Wolf: Derek/Stiles for the "wild card" square on my kink bingo card.

They're companion fics, happening at the same time and from the same inciting event, from two different perspectives. Obviously I've found my F/F/M/M OT4 of destiny for this fandom! The idea for them came to me very suddenly and I wrote them in one day, basically. One of the great things about having this list and giving myself deadlines and getting things done is that there's room to do more spontaneous in-the-moment writing.

Draft (mostly) done, needs revisions:
  • Community Shirley/Jeff virginity/celibacy kink bingo, post by 19 October
  • White Collar Diana/El obedience kink bingo, post by October: 75% done

Deadlines:
  • [livejournal.com profile] startrekbigbang mix for a Jim/Bones fic: (finished) draft due 10 October, post date 21 October just needs a cover
  • [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang Pepper/Natasha rock band AU: post date 1 November, needs a first revision then off to beta
  • [livejournal.com profile] a_b_o_ladies Lydia/Erica, Erica POV, with backgrounds of Scott/Allison, Derek/Stiles, Danny/Jackson, Boyd/Isaac. What all the omegas going into their first heats one-by-one does to your junior year of high school, which is mostly, a lot of unexpected consequences. I'd been thinking a lot, being in TW, about how the a/b/o thing works with ladies so I'm excited to work out some of those ideas in this story. post in early November
  • [livejournal.com profile] teenwolf_bb Derek/Stiles sort-of AU: draft (10 of 15K) due 5 November; post in late December
  • [livejournal.com profile] inception_bang Ariadne/Yusuf Vegas AU: draft (12 of 15K) due 5 December; post in late January
  • [livejournal.com profile] yuletide assignment in early November; post 22 December

Which means:
  • October: revise rock band, write TW AU and a/b/o, revise Community and White Collar fics
  • November: revise TW AU, write Vegas
  • December: revise Vegas, write Yuletide
  • when I get annoyed: poke at kink bingo

So the issue is that work has been really slow lately, but the things I need to do I can't do at work. I really can't start the TW AU or the a/b/o until I've finished watching the show which, hello stupid anxiety. I also have to revise Community at home because I basically have to put a couple of episodes on loop so I can fix the Jeff-voice. I've found that I can't write dirty-talking!Peter Burke at work, either, so that's the White Collar fic. I just finalized the first feedback for the rock band AU, but man, editing is so much better done at home on Scrivener where I can see everything all at once, than at work on gdocs. Hence, the writing of kink bingo fic last week. And probably this week. And then next week work won't be so slow anymore. Argh!

In the hopper, probably for the spring:
  • TW SF hipsters AU will be long and involved and take up most of my spring writing time I think. It's pack and it wants to be multi-ship and multi-POV (like WWII or EWFS) and have real emotional stakes, so I need to really devote time to it. It's strange to think that I'm going to embark on another true ensemble, taking the emotional arcs seriously but there's no adventure plot chaptered fic, especially in a fandom that's so focused on one ship and on angsty adventure stories, but I guess that's where I'm headed?
  • HP Pansy/Millicent school time
  • Suits Harvey/Mike secret matchmaking for Jessica
  • Avengers Clint is a tailor AU
  • Avengers high school AU
  • Avengers hipster AU--shaping up to be more of a series of vingettes

WIP Update!

I would have thought I did more in the last month, but the RBB was really uncooperative and sucked up a bunch of time. That said, I managed to pile together a bunch of cheerleaders who are going to help me push through a lot of the things I want to get posted for the fall!

Not on these lists: the inevitable Teen Wolf AU.

FINISHED AND POSTED:
  • ST Chapel/Rand Radcliffe AU for [livejournal.com profile] heroinebigbang: Girls To Talk To. YAY! I've only been planning on this since I wrote the Harvard AU a few years ago.
  • Teen Wolf NC17 what? Yeah I'm blaming [personal profile] affectingly for that one.


Draft done, needs revisions:
  • Avengers Pepper/Natasha for [livejournal.com profile] avengers_rbb, post 28 August: got first go-through from the cheerleaders, and will edit later this week, when I've left it alone for a bit.
  • Community Shirley/Jeff virginity/celibacy kink bingo, post by 19 October: to be posted by the start of the new season in October; will probably edit once the rock band AU is well in hand.


Other deadlines:
  • White Collar Diana/El obedience kink bingo, after the summer season ends: 75% done
  • Avengers Pepper/Natasha rock band AU for [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang, draft due 7 September, posting in late October (10,000 words): started writing!
  • Glee Mercedes/Quinn, post by 13 September: 75% done
  • Inception Ariadne/Yusuf Vegas AU for [livejournal.com profile] inception_bang, draft due 5 December, posting in February (15,000 words)

podfic, ascendio, avengers, my place in life, etc.

Before I go off on an entry filled with weird ego-feelings and the usual bittersweet memories, I'm excited to say that [personal profile] reena_jenkins has recorded a podfic of my Natasha/Pepper story, The Shoes Make the Woman, for the KISSES II podfic fest [community profile] audiofemme is hosting for International Day of Femmeslash! You can also find it here on AO3! Go, go, listen! It's really super good! I am flabbergasted and can barely contain my excitement.

So! I went off to Ascendio last weekend, and it was a blast! Got to spend plenty of quality time with my pal [personal profile] catja_mikhailovic, whom I don't see enough, and roomed with [personal profile] heidi, whom I've been lucky enough to see a whole bunch this year, plus cherished convos with [personal profile] stinaleigh when she wasn't wrangling celebs, [personal profile] bookshop when she wasn't on a panel, and [personal profile] zorb when she wasn't Merlin's Circling it up. Heidi also gifted me with the general hilarity of sharing a suite with two thirteen-year-old boys who mostly wanted to hit each other over the head with a pillow shaped like a giant Duff beer can.

This next bit I'm putting behind the cut because it contains weird egotistical ramblings about fandom. I think I have the fandom bends. )

In the meantime I think I might send out an email to some pals to ask for fix cheerleaders for all this stuff I have coming up. I've always been shy about actually talking about what I'm writing—it just seems weirdly egotistical to me, not to see others doing but to do myself; you know, "nobody cares about your rpg character" etc.—but I see lots of folks doing it and maybe it will make me feel better about my first drafts. Hmm. Anyway if anyone has actually read this far and has any interest in that, I would appreciate it!
