I FINALLY FINISHED SOMETHING. \o/

(Yes, I'm still working on that Merlin story. I haven't given up. *looks shifty* *eyes all the wips* *cries*)


Thanks to Dorothy and Jim for encouragement and assistance. And thanks to Chris Evans for his microexpressions, and to Marvel Studios for making the life of Steve Rogers so fucking tragic that I had to do this.

Yes, I know, I suck at updating, but I also suck at writing and a whole bunch of other things lately, so we are PAR FOR THE COURSE! On the happy side, in approximately two months I will be seeing Kevin Whately in the flesh on stage, and you know, this means I will also be BACK IN ENGLAND. SO EXCITED OMG. There's also a chance to see Roger Allam in a play too, but I have to think about it because we don't want to burn ourselves out completely, and the tickets are also about $50 a pop and, uh, I'm trying not to blow all my dough before I even get there. It sucks being a) middle-aged and b) not made of money. Sadly this will probably be our last UK trip for at least a couple of years, but we're really looking forward to showing our friends around and soaking up as much of London as we can. :)

I had another birthday last week and it was quite nice, improved hugely by fannish good wishes and pressies from people like sheafrotherdon, who is as always, the loveliest, and [personal profile] mrs_sweetpeach, who is as talented as she is generous. And THEN I got a notice from AO3 that I had not one, but two stories written in honour of my natal day! First, there was the adorable Rain by [archiveofourown.org profile] paperscribe, and then there was the sweet and hot Phone a Friend by [archiveofourown.org profile] wendymr! I may not be quite as active in fandom as I'd like to be, but there's still nothing like fandom people to lift your spirits. Thanks so much to all of you. <3

Merlin Fic: Rise and Shine
Merlin/Arthur CAKE OF DESTINY

Here's my second story for merlinreversebb. Thanks so much to agirlnamedtruth for her amazing artwork! Send her some love here. \o/

PLEASE NOTE that this story is currently incomplete, with 2 of 3 chapters posted - I'm working like the dickens to finish it, but the deadline was today and it got completely away from me. I'm hoping to post the rest in the next couple of days, and will edit this post accordingly when I do. In the meantime, please feel free to bookmark and wait 'til I'm done - I know WIPs aren't everyone's cup of tea (and when I think back several years ago to when I posted ALL my longer stories as WIPs, I think HOLY CRAP WHAT WAS I THINKING).

Rise and Shine (Gwen/Morgana, background Arthur/Merlin, R, wordcount c 11000 at present, est. 16000 when complete)

Merlin Fic: Alterations
Merlin/Arthur CAKE OF DESTINY
lamardeuse
Here's my first story for merlinreversebb. Thanks so much to brinimc for her gorgeous, inspiring artwork! Send her feedback here. <3

Alterations (Arthur/Merlin, background Gwaine/Percival, PG-13, c. 15500 words)

The door burst open, hitting the opposite wall with a bang.

“Oi!” Merlin said, turning around. “You can't just –”

Arthur Pendragon stood in the doorway, bare-chested and panting. He was clearly furious, if the look on his face was any indication, and he was sopping wet, his jeans moulded to his perfectly formed thighs, his golden hair plastered down against his skull. No man who resembled a homicidal drowned rat should have looked that good, and yet he pulled it off.

Oh, and btw, this is my 300th story on the AO3! \o/

Yeah. So that happened.

*waves* So a couple of things: I've been sucked into the vortex of tumblr. Sadly, I seem to have only so much energy for flitting around various social media sites, so when I got sucked into twitter, my lj posting went down, and when I got sucked into tumblr, my twitter game suffered. I still don't love tumblr - there's a lot of noise and there's very little discussion - but other things I do like, particularly the social justice posts. I'm learning a lot about perspectives I didn't see on LJ, even more so than on twitter.

Secondly, I seem to have gotten hooked on Top Gear. /o\

I KNOW. It's a completely fucking goofy show, and Clarkson as an individual is odious and the other two aren't much better - but when they're together and doing their schtick, I just laugh and laugh and laugh. I bought a pile of DVDs for J for his birthday because he'd fallen in love with them when we went on our last UK trip in the fall watching reruns on Dave, and within a week I was as fangirly about them as he was.

And finally, erm, I seem to have also gotten hooked on the idea of Jeremy Clarkson/James May RPS.

/o\ I KNOW. I KNOW. I KNOW. I think my breaking point was last Sunday's ep, where spoilers for anyone who caresCollapse )
Anyway, there is now fic based on that spoilerly bit of business. Both places are locked down, so you either have to be a member of topgearslash on LJ, or have an account on AO3. There is no WAY this stuff is seeing the light of day when the two of them are constantly on Twitter:

Cocking About (Jeremy/James, 1450 words, R)

For those of you who are now side-eyeing me like whoa, just FYI that I'm still writing Merlin, too - in fact, I'm working on a story for reversebb right now. :)

2013 in review
Lewis/Hathaway
lamardeuse
Such as it is! Sadly, 2013 was not a great year for writing, and the writing I did do was mainly because I kicked myself in the ass by making commitments to someone other than myself, but hopefully 2014 will be better. :)

Six stories in two fandomsCollapse )
