[Started up the clocks] by [livejournal.com profile] delicatale
--Sometimes relationships have to grow through friendship, pushing and pulling, pain, denial and regrets. Canon, set before-to-after Thor.

Honestly one of the best things I have ever read, not just in this fandom. The subtlety is breathtaking; the emotions shine so clearly. This is, in my humble opinion, quite possibly the best thing [livejournal.com profile] delicatale has ever written, and that says a lot. Truly profound, at least it was to me. Made me cry, I don't mind admitting it. *sniffle* Also made my heart grow about ten sizes, and made me feel like someone wrapped their arms around me and held me close. Beautiful work.
sirona_fics: (clint/phil)
Oh my fucking god ONE OF THESE DAYS I WILL STOP LETTING [livejournal.com profile] delicatale GIVE ME ALL THE SODDING PLOT BUNNIES EVER.

...I can't see that day happening ANY TIME SOON, if I'm honest. AND ALL SHE DID THIS TIME WAS SHOW ME THIS:



AND ALLLLL THE BUNNIES SAT UP AND TOOK NOTICE LIKE IT WAS A SACKFUL OF CARROTS. WHY, BRAIN, WHY.

For interested parties -- YES, WE ARE WRITING THIS THING. IT IS GOING TO BE AN AU WHERE STEVE AND BUCKY AND NATASHA AND CLINT OWN THIS GARRAGE IN BROOKLYN, AND TONY'S SWANKY NEW CAR BREAKS DOWN LIKE TWO BLOCKS AWAY, AND HE DOESN'T HAVE HIS TOOLS HANDY AND GOES IN AND THERE IS ALL THE SNARK AND BAITING AND BANTERING AND UST. AND THEN HE TELLS HIS CFO ABOUT IT, WHO JUST HAPPENS TO BE ONE PHIL COULSON... I THINK YOU KNOW WHERE THIS IS GOING. ALL THE ROMANCE. ALLLLL THE ~FEEEEELINGS.

...OH MY GOD, WHY AM I LIKE THIS. :(

Title: Happiness is Homemade
Author(s): [personal profile] delicatale and [profile] sirona_gs
Pairing: Steve/Danny, Chin/Malia
Rating: NC-17
Word count: ~43,000
Warnings: none that aren't implied by the rating; Steve’s parents are both alive in this story.
Summary: It's not easy, running a Jersey-style bakery in Hawai'i. Things get a little easier (and a whole lot more fun) once Danny meets Chin and Kono's friend, the one who enjoys leaning against his glass cases despite all of Danny's dire warnings, and starts food fights for no reason whatsoever.

sirona_fics: (throw him in the shark tank)
Exhausted. Have just spent twelve and a half hours working my arse off without a single break (no lunch break; not even a tea break). The only thing that kept me sane was basically [livejournal.com profile] delicatale, who last night incepted me with a plot bunny and, uh. Well, basically we have ~9,000 words of a Clint/Phil, Steve/Bucky Paranormal Romance AU. YES, WE'RE MAD. XD Now that we've got that out of the way, it, seriously, it saved my sanity today. I am ready to drop. It is made of sunshine and rainbows and fairies (*snort* you'll get it when you read it, I promise) and boys in looooove. <3333 Because I happen to have a slightly unsavoury history of obsession with the genre, and I have dragged [livejournal.com profile] delicatale kicking and screaming with me. SHE SHOULD KNOW BETTER THAN TO SAY THESE THINGS TO ME. XD

So behind on the Snowflake Challenge. I'm gonna do a big joint post tomorrow, I think. I've just been too drained to can.

This helped, though:



Via [livejournal.com profile] delicatale, via exampleofinconsistency


BECAUSE, I MEAN. I'M KNACKERED, NOT DEAD. *___________________*

Also, this made me laugh so hard that my dad asked me what on earth I was reading.

Yeah. XDDD

Also, there is this:



HOW AM I EVEN GOING TO COPE. T___________T

All right. Day off tomorrow. Possibly more Clint/Phil and Steve/Bucky and ~FEEEEEEELINGS. <3
sirona_fics: (Default)
I've just read this beyond-adorable news story, and I agree with [livejournal.com profile] kitsune_tsuki -- this is the perfect set-up for a romantic comedy. And now I desperately want someone to write this, in whichever fandom inspires. :D

God, I'm so tired, even though all I've done today has been edits. Goddamn you, cold. D: On the plus side, both the Sherlockmas and the [livejournal.com profile] dream_holiday assignments are done and ready to go! \0/ \0/ On the not-so-plus side, it is taking me ages to get through reading over the Coffee Shop AU so we can pass it over to our wonderfully obliging beta, because I keep getting distracted by Steve/Bucky kitty fic, which, BEST EVER DISTRACTION. BEST. EVER. And also listening to this song, which is making me want to write PINING BOYS IN LOVE, and more specifically the Steve/Peggy/Bucky strand of the Love, Actually AU, because MY GOD, THE FEELS. <3




SO. WONDERFUL. :')

And also there is Avengers Christmas fic that I am itching to read, and then I got sidetracked while picking out a title for my Sherlockmas fic from a bunch of quotes on writing that are making me all warm inside with love for my craft, and.

What I'm saying is, I just want to lie back on the sofa and read/watch soppy love stories for the rest of the night. *sigh* If you have any of those in mind, do please throw them my way. <3
sirona_fics: (what is this I don't even)
No, you guys, look, you know what? This isn't even my fandom, or my pairing (except very occasionally and without much intent other than something mindless and pretty and Star Trek (2009), OKAY), BUT.

NO, SERIOUSLY. THIS. THIS THING.

Linking you to a post, which, hysterical giggling is what is coming out of my mouth at this point in time.

REMEMBER WHEN SOMEONE EDITED THE STAR TREK AUDIOBOOK TO MAKE IT SOUND LIKE ZACHARY QUINTO WAS NARRATING KIRK/SPOCK PORN

WHAT IT SAYS ON THE TIN. SEVERELY NWS, AND NOT JUST BECAUSE OF THE CONTENT -- RATHER, THE WAY YOU MIGHT FALL OUT OF YOUR CHAIR, DEMENTED, DISBELIEVING LAUGHTER SPEWING OUT OF YOUR MOUTH.

...It really is a VERY good cut. :D :D :D

In other news my voice has started coming back after copious amounts of tea (woke up to find it completely gone this morning), but I still feel like shit. Preparing to unload Love, Actually onto the screen. AND TAKE NOTES. I <3 RESEARCH. :D GUYS, [livejournal.com profile] delicatale MADE A COLOUR-CODED SPREADSHEET WITH ALL THE PLOT STRANDS. IT IS GLORIOUS. SHE IS MY HERO.

Also I have to tell you that [livejournal.com profile] somehowunbroken continues in her quest of GIVING ME ALL THE PLOT BUNNIES EVER. Starting with-- an Art School AU where Bucky is the rockstar-rebel art student and Steve is his shy-yet-ridiculously-talented classmate with the hugest crush on that gorgeous BAMF, who doesn't know how to talk to him, but ends up finding out when Bucky helps him out with some bullies that Bucky is THE FRIENDLIEST GUY HE'S EVER MET, until you threaten one of his friends and he goes Winter Soldier on your arse. And then Steve goes on, IDK, a holiday to Europe for like three months (as a reward after graduating from art school), to stay with his mom's relatives in Ireland and he comes back LOOKING LIKE THAT. AND THEN THERE IS PINING AND UST AND GETTING TOGETHER AND ALL THE MAKING OUT. OH GOD, NO. I JUST. THE TIME, I DON'T HAVE IT. --And continuing with the brand-spanking-new [livejournal.com profile] avengers_tables comm, WHICH IS NOT HELPING THE CASE OF SEVERE PLOT BUNNIES ATTACKS, OR MY SELF-CONTROL ISSUES. /0\ /0\ MY FLIST, FULL OF THE MOST DREADFUL ENABLERS EVER.

...Oh god, SOMEONE TAKE THE INTERNET AWAY FROM ME.
sirona_fics: (plot bunnies)
You guys, I keep telling you [livejournal.com profile] delicatale has THE BEST IDEAS EVER. Here's more proof: she said to me today, AVENGERS LOVE ACTUALLY AU, and, uh. I... might have blanked out a little from THE SHEER BLIND AWESOMENESS OF THE THOUGHT.

Three words for you: PEPPER FOR PRESIDENT. Or Prime Minister. We are as yet undecided on the location. BUT SERIOUSLY. I. AM. SO. EXCITED. About writing that fic. WE ARE GOING TO DO A STEVE/PEGGY/BUCKY. BECAUSE WE ARE NOT ONES TO PANDER TO THE HETERONORMATIVE, STEREOTYPICAL COUPLEDOM, AND BECAUSE THE THOUGHT OF BUCKY BEING LEFT BEHIND TEARS MY HEART TO PIECES. (I think the whole world knows of my BUCKY FEELS by now, so I shan't exaggerate. I am just going to say that) IT IS GOING TO BE SO FUCKING AWESOME. \0/ \0/ I literally CANNOT curb my enthusiasm. :D :D I ABSOLUTELY CAN'T WAIT TO GET STARTED. I have completely and utterly failed to stop thinking of this ever since she mentioned it. ♥

We're almost done with the coffee shop AU! \0/ Almost 20K, BLOODY HELL, WE'VE DONE IT AGAIN.

God, I am crashing, I can feel it. That's twice today that I've been FUCKING MANIC and have crashed afterwards. Oh, well, it lasted a hell of a lot longer than I thought it would.

Today's Clint/Phil rec: probably all of you have seen it already, but [livejournal.com profile] delicatale WROTE PUPPY FIC!! \0/ \0/ IT HAS ALLLLL THE FEEEELS, and Coulson trying SO HARD to resist and pull back and hsafjkhkldhgg PHIL, BABY, GIVE IN, YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO. <3<3<3 Happy-ever-after plus puppy!! What more could anyone want?? :D

Okay, tired now. Let's see if I can wring out a few more words out of my tired brain. Alternatively I'll say fuck it and watch Love, Actually. EITHER WAY IS A WINNER. \0/ \0/
sirona_fics: (clint/phil smiles)
I've spent all day wrangling an ill baby Nicky, and I am now exhausted. I'm gonna go to bed in a bit, but first I wanted to share a conversation [livejournal.com profile] delicatale and I had over the past couple days, because, well. Let's just say WE'VE DONE IT AGAIN. Basically it went something like this:

[livejournal.com profile] delicatale: OMG Clint/Phil, we need ALL THE TROPES, like puppy fic and kid!fic and coffee shop au.
[livejournal.com profile] sirona_gs: FHJFHFJGH COFFEE SHOP AU.
[livejournal.com profile] delicatale: YES.
[livejournal.com profile] sirona_gs: Have you too been feeling the co-writing bugs bite? BECAUSE I KNOW I HAVE.
[livejournal.com profile] delicatale: WE SHOULD TOTALLY.
[livejournal.com profile] sirona_gs: BUT BUT BUT PUPPY FIIIIC, I NEED IT IN MY LIIIIFE, YOU WILL BE GLORIOUS. LET'S DO IT AFTER YOU WRITE IT.
[livejournal.com profile] delicatale: BUT BUT BUT COFFEE SHOP AUUUUU I REALLY WANT TO WRITE IT NAO. :')
[livejournal.com profile] sirona_gs: ...FUCK IT, LET'S DO IT. \0/ \0/

And so you're looking at about 5,500 words of said Coffee Shop AU sitting pretty in a GDoc overnight until we get to writing some moar tomorrow. YOU GUYS, THE FUN, IT IS EPIC. Also writing with [livejournal.com profile] delicatale is ALWAYS A DELIGHT, I swear, ALL THE BEST THINGS IN THIS SO FAR ARE HERS. <3<3<3 SO MANY FEEEEELINGS, GOD, I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW I'M HANDLING ALL OF THEM. :')

...Those two, I LOVE THEM SO MUCH, NO LIE, THEY ARE RIDICULOUS BOYS IN LOVE. <3 This is going to be utterly trope-tastic and I LOVE IT. :D :D It's so awesome, finding a pairing early enough that most tropes are still up for grabs, writing-wise! \0/ \0/

Anyway, oh god, I have an Arthur/Eames fic to edit before sending it out to my SuperBeta tonight. Luckily, it's fairly short -- about six and a half K. Once more unto the breach, et cetera, et cetera.

The Avengers Friending Meme is still ongoing! :D If you're wondering whether to play, there's only one answer to that, really: DOOOOO IIIITTTT. Come make new friends! \0/

ALSO ALSO SHERLOCK BBC'S NEW SEASON WILL AIR ON JANUARY 1ST. I FEEL A PARTY POST COMING ON. \0/ \0/ \0/
sirona_fics: (steve/danny smiles)
So I watched 2.08 last night at... 12.30am... and I may have rewound the first five minutes a truly shameful amount of times. And then I freaked the fuck out at [livejournal.com profile] delicatale over email, darling I'm sorry, you are going to be all o_____O WHAT THE HELL at me, I am sure. I JUST HAD ALLLLLL THE ~FEEEEELINGS about it, you guys. ALL OF THEM. All the gifs out there are GOOD FOR MY SOUL. THEY CANNOT GET MORE MARRIED WITHOUT ACTUALLY PUTTING RINGS ON THEIR FINGERS. ALL THE FOND BICKERING FOREVER. <3<3<3

[2.08 HIGHLIGHTS] )

Also, [livejournal.com profile] delicatale and I may or may not have written over 5K of Steve wooing Danny with Jersey food last night. Er. IT IS NOT MY FAULT; SHE SEDUCES ME WITH THESE PLOT BUNNIES THAT I CANNOT SAY NO TO, AND I AM SO EASY WHEN IT COMES TO BOYS IN LOVE. /0\ That should be finished later today, and hopefully even posted, we shall see! :D

I have 9 more hours of work ahead of me, the afternoon portion of which promises to be exceedingly boring. Which pretty much guarantees that writing shall happen! \0/ I'm feeling good about today. Undercaffeinated as of yet, BUT GOOD.

Steve says 'Good morning.'



HE JUST LOVES HIS DANNO SO MUCH. :') Also, that shirt makes me want to CLIMB HIM LIKE A TREE. LIKE. A. TREE.
sirona_fics: (steve/danny facepalm)
I'm just so, so happy to have an episode we can all squee over again! [livejournal.com profile] delicatale and myself have been going back and forth for the past two hours, and [livejournal.com profile] delicatale will post an amazing little coda tomorrow, but basically it went like this:

delicatale and I write all the domestic fluff ever )
sirona_fics: (code red pms alert)
Gah. I hate you, brain. I hate you, body, for the next two or three days, depending (yes, icon is highly appropriate). I want to sleep for a sodding week.

In excellent news, I wrote up my theory submission essay yesterday, and am mighty pleased with it, if I say so myself. \0/ Now the motivational essay to do, and call up my docent for the academic reference, and I'm golden. /relieved

Other than that, submitted my h50_exchange assignment! \0/ Got my dream_holiday assignment! \0/ \0/ I have ideas already. It's kind of nice to think about Eames and Arthur again. <3 Mine and [livejournal.com profile] delicatale's Pa Williams story should be up in the next couple of days! \0/ And I am half-way through editing our Bakery!AU Big Bang story! \0/ \0/ I haven't even looked at it for almost a couple of months now, and consequently I don't have every word of it burning in my brain any more, so I was looking at it with as fresh an eye as I'm likely to get. I LOVE IT SO MUCH, STILL. <3 <3 /accomplished

Work is being insane. We're changing up our Surgery department, and Jesus, SO MUCH STUFF TO DO. D: Probably why I've been so quiet around here -- literally have not had the energy to hit my flist, not even for the preeeety. Another week of that coming right up. Official unveiling on Friday 14th, so until then I may or may not be a bit skimpy around here. D: Good thing it'll be over after that -- PTerry's Snuff is out next week!! \0/ \0/ Have ordered it off Amazon, together with the cute 2012 dragon calendar -- which will be used for squee and tattoo ideas both. :D I've also splurged out on a few books -- delivery rates are ridiculous, though. D: Almost as expensive as the books themselves. Anyway, I shall have bookses next week! \0/ \0/ Meanwhile, have been re-reading Unseen Academicals, and as always marvelling at PTerry's mastery. And staying up waaaay too late. And being in furious love with both Nutt and Glenda. <3

Having trouble concentrating on actual writing. I have at least four -- no, five stories coming up, clamouring for attention in my head, so it's anyone's guess which one will be coming up through the floorboards next. Might make some progress today, who knows? After I've done the work I still need to finish for tomorrow. GAH. Okay, moar Bakery!AU until I manage to wake up properly. Can't even drink my tea without attempting to spill it everywhere. Fuck I hate that time of month. X|
sirona_fics: (steve/danny cargument on horseback)
I've been... kind of quiet? I've been around and commenting, but haven't felt the urge to make a post of late. WELL THIS STOPS NOW.

Points of achievement in the past few days:

+ Finished the cop!Erik AU!! It stands at 42.2K, and I sent it off to my SuperBeta a couple hours ago. \0/ Annnnd now I am naturally at the stage where I think IT IS ALL HORRIBLE. D: Let's hope it's just nerves. It's meant to be an auction fic, and I am freaking out that my recipient isn't going to like it/ I have not tried hard enough. Y'know, the usual. >.>;;

+ While I was wondeing how to celebrate ACTUALLY FINISHING IT, [livejournal.com profile] delicatale waylaid me with THIS PIECE OF AWESOME NEWS [WARNING FOR H50 CASTING SPOILER], and then WE [SAME H50 CASTING SPOILER] ) I have missed writing with her so much.

+ Applied for a new job. Kind of. It's clinical research admin, so it's anyone's guess how it'll go.

+ Have started compiling docs for my grad school application.

+ Have come up with a 2.01 coda-style h/c ficlet that may or may not get written, IDK yet. We shall see.

+ Read THIS RIDICAMAZING EAMES/ARTHUR SPACE PILOT/CATBOY FIC. HOW SO AWESOME I SWEAR TO GOD. WHY IS THERE NOT 30000 WORDS OF THAT, I WOULD READ THEM ALLLLL.

+ Have perved over pics of gorgeous H50 cast. The question remains as follows: AOL WHAT EVEN ARE YOU. Exhibit A: that pic wot everybody has already seen, but the fact remains: AOL'S ASS IS MAGIC. )

AND SO IS SCOTTY CAAN'S EVERYTHING. )

ALSO, THE CARGUMENT ON HORSES. I CANNOT EVEN ANYMORE. BOYS. ♥_______♥

+ In that same vein, read THIS RIDICULOUSLY HOT BOTTOM!STEVE SMUT by [livejournal.com profile] delicatale, which kind of blew my mind with how NNNNGGGHHHH SCORCHING it was, holy christ on a bike. *_______*

+ Have made and consumed pancakes--

+ Because of a stupid molar inflamation that means I can't chew most solid foods. D: D: Appropriately, makes me madder than a bear with a toothache.

+ Read this beyond-amazing Sherlock/Bridget Jones's Diary fusion where Sherlock is Bridget writing in aforementioned diary. Hilarious, and also astoundingly accurate. Sherlock smitten by John Watson made my morning. ♥

+ Stared at James McAvoy's ridiculously lovely face. This is Charles from the cop!Erik AU. )

That's about it for now. Am debating whether or not to sign up for the [livejournal.com profile] h50_holidayswap because the whole of this fandom seems to be doing it, but I have SO MUCH ON that I kind of break out in hives just thinking about taking on more things. WHAT TO DO, WHAT TO DO. D: Right. That's all I have to say at this point. STAY AWESOME, YOU GUYS. <3
sirona_fics: (steve & gracie)
Title: Stepping Stones
Pairing: Steve/Danny, past Steve/Catherine, past Danny/Rachel
Word count: ~15,500
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: none, apart from Steve-is-a-Daddy, and a metric fuckton of fluff.
Summary Steve is a full-time Dad to his daughter Julie. When nanny/babysitter Lenora gets into Yale and has to leave, Steve has to make Other Arrangements. Enter daycare centre Stepping Stones, proprietor one Danny Williams.
Notes: So [livejournal.com profile] delicatale said Let's write something easy and fluffy and For Fun and involving Steve + Baby, because THAT IS NEVER NOT AWESOME. And so the daycare!AU was born. Expect a coda in the near future. Yes, already -- this is too happy-making not to continue. You could see this fic as an outpouring of love and devotion to baby Nicky on my part. <3
