Current Fic List

I'm using the same list from last year, but I'm updating it with the stories I'm working on now or the ones I've added. And removed the ones I've finished. Also added the ones I'd left vague. And this is it. I WILL NOT ADD MORE THIS YEAR! (I lied...I forgot a couple of stories) (Well, I have to determine what I'm going to edit.)

Okay I want to try to finish fics that I've promised for presents (plus a couple of others I have in my head). For those that don't know, work is really kicking my butt so writing has been slow since the job started. This is my plan... taking off from my Fic List on what I will be working on.

Wish List Meme

Borrowed from the absolutely fabulous daria234.

Instead of picking 5 people to tag I’m also borrowing her idea of tagging—if you see this and want to do it, consider yourself tagged.

Rules
• List 1-10 pairings/prompts that you have been dying to read. Maybe it's a really rare pairing or something you've requested on any of the past smut memes/exchanges/etc which haven't been fulfilled.

• When you see this posted on your friends' journals, you may do one of the following:
- Write it.
- Link to one that's already been written, whether by you or someone else.
-Talk about if you are also interested in this type of fic/think this pairing would be fun.
- Nothing - it's just a wishlist! It's a conversations starter and just for fun.

• There are no length or rating limits, and prompts may be duplicated. Be specific in your prompts particularly in reference to any requirements that may hinder your appreciation of the fic.

• There is no deadline for this, but once your ten prompts have been written to your satisfaction you are welcome to make a new post starting over. You may write your own prompts if you want. If your tastes change, you can certainly switch out one prompt for another at any time.


TO REITERATE: this is not a "request" list but a "wish" list, if anything inspires you and you want to write it, I'd be super happy, but I'm not trying to fish for people to write my dream fic here, it's just in good fun.

My fic preferences: Prefer no character death, serious illness or injury, body modification, scat, watersports, underage, ABO, fisting, noncom, hardcore kink as focus of story.

Any rating okay. Smut, silly crackfic, and character studies and all other genres equally liked.

(Thanks Daria for the rules and most of the preferences.)

My list: (in no particular order)—I’m focusing on what is interesting me at the moment and what I haven’t attempted to write yet. I may very well go back and try to write these myself, but right now I haven’t done it.

1. Librarians—Jake Stone, Cassandra Cillian, Ezekiel Jones, and Jenkins—the three Librarians show Jenkins what it means to be family (no sex please, just happy family feels)

2. Force Awakens—Rey/Finn/Poe Dameron—Poe and Rey attempt to teach Finn how to pilot

3. Rogue One—Jyn Erso/Cassian Andor—I want something happy for them. Quiet time or AU is fine, but happy.

4. Star Wars—Han Solo/Leia Organa Solo, Luke Skywalker, toddler!Ben Solo(Kylo Ren), Chewbacca—family time

5. Marvel Universe—Steve Rogers&/Bucky Barnes—dance fic—preferably post-serum Steve filled by tinhutlady (see below.So percious!)


**Thought of two more...

6. Teen Wolf/Arrow--Jackson Whittemore undercover as Roy Harper--what would have happened if Roy was actually Jackson?

7. Need for Speed--Finn/Joe Peck (AKA Beast Boys)--first time or getting distracted while working--I'm not sure, they're just so adorable.



I might come back and add a couple more wishes later, but I’m going to stick with five for now.

After Careful Consideration...

... I'm not going to close my LJ, but I'm also no longer going to post Fic on LJ. For the moment, I'm going to leave it open and use it for reflections on how my writing is going, I'm not sure how or what yet, but I'll come back to it later (I might go to a completely friends locked journal but I haven't decided yet). But actual stories will not be posted on either LJ or DW.

I'm also not sure if I'm going to leave old stories up on LJ, but I won't make that decision until after school's out for the summer.

All stories will be posted on AO3. You are welcome to follow me over there, I'm shanachie there. And you can subscribe or bookmark my page or just hang out.

For now... well I was going to be impressive and say good night in German, but I'm too tired.

BinGO!

So tinhutlady posted her bingo card the other day and it looked like a ton of fun. I decided I don't have enough to do so I went ahead and joined the comm ([community profile] origfic_bingo ) and requested my own card. I joined the LJ one, not the DW one, but they seem pretty interchangeable.

So here's my card:

Original Fic Bingo
coming homebody alteration/injurytorturemedical treatmentsports/games
baking (cookies)cryingsuicideAU: Alternate History/Continuitydisability (sudden)
physical imperfectionstime travelWILD CARDhomelessnessjourneys and quests
birthdaysmemorieslong-lost love/friendminor characterswings
friend in needabandonmentdomestic blissromantic relationship (assumed)silence
 
 

I've already got a couple of ideas percolating, but nothing firm. I need to redo my fic list. I know I won't be doing at least one or two of these because they're triggers for me, but the rest look like a lot of fun!

Writing Anniversaries

I was talking with a friend about anniversaries recently. Writing anniversaries to be specific. She had a semi-important one coming up (her one year anniversary in a specific fandom) and was working on hitting a milestone number of stories written and posted in that fandom in time for it.

I commented that I didn’t think I’d ever marked my writing anniversary like she and another friend tend to. In fact, off the top of my head I couldn’t even remember when any of my writing anniversaries are. The more I thought about it though, the more I wondered when my writing anniversary (anniversaries) are.

The date I joined my writing group is easily discoverable and actually I do sort of celebrate that every year, although the group calls it a “birthday”. I simply needed to log into my account and access my information. I’ve been a proud member of my writing group since May 28, 2003.

My other two anniversaries are a little more difficult to discover. Not because I’m trying to hide them, but because the information isn’t online. One part was never online and the other has been removed for the time being.

So my next step was to discover my fanfic anniversary—the day I published my first fandom story. That took a little hunting through jump drives since I’m in the process of changing computers and moving my stories between sites. The first day I published a fanfic story was August 6, 2007.

There was one more anniversary I was interested in finding. The day I started writing my very first novel. While that novel will never see the light of day, that day is very important to me. Luckily the actual day was not just the day I started my novel, but also the first day of Operation Desert Storm: January 17, 1991. Now this isn’t the day I started writing, just the day I started my first novel.

So how about you? Do you celebrate writing anniversaries? Do you do anything special? I don’t normally, but I’m considering doing something this year. I’ll be hitting my 14, 10, and 26 year anniversaries this year. So at least one milestone this year!

FIC Toasting Absent Friends

Series:
Written For:
Prompt: Tag to 201
Summary: Part of the team goes out to toast the memory of Anne-Marie.
Rating: PG-13

Author's Note: So this was supposed to be more than it turned out, but it kinda got away from me. It’s my first time writing in the fandom, but I have one other story planned and I’ll work on that. (And make this a series once I get it done.) No beta for this so if you see any mistakes, let me know. Thanks to lillyg for catching a couple of my mistakes.



Absent friendsCollapse )



There's another bit that's only posted on AO3. It was supposed to be the beginning of the second story, but well... I failbotted and it was badly done (not badly written, just continuity problems). So I'll rewrite it. But I enjoyed it so I posted it for y'all to read. Birthday Boy

Beta Help

So normally I have a great crew of girls that read my stories before I post them, but I have an obession that none of them watch.

If anyone watches Crossing Lines (specifically season 2) and is willing to take a look at a couple of fics for me, please drop me a comment.

Thanks! (Alternatively if you're willing to read just to read... let me know.)

(The show is on Netflix and if you'd like to watch the episodes needed, let me know... I'm still working on the stories...)
