OH MY GOD YOU GUYS YOU SPOIL ME SO MUCH. <3333333333 Thank you, for all the messages since yesterday. They've kept me going, your generosity of spirit, your love. It has been a week and no mistake, but with you I know I'll always end up on top. <333

I can't even, you guys, I got three fics written for me since yesterday. THREE. :'))))))) You humble me. AND THEY ARE ALL FICS OF MY HEART. The more I spend around you, the more I convince myself that I could never find better people than all of you, which is something that arsehole will never have, so. I actually don't have the words to express how much I appreciate all of you. So I will share my bounty, in the hopes that it makes others as happy as it made me. :) And as appreciation, it's looking like I'll be able to post that Clint/Phil D/s fic later tonight, so I'll be able to give something back to all of you! <3 In the order I got the notifs:

Ten Words Or Less by the inimitable [livejournal.com profile] gyzym

This has Clint/Coulson as well as ensemble, and it made me grin like an absolute idiot. :D So, so utterly happy-making. <333

Tea and Sympathy by [livejournal.com profile] rubygirl29
--Clint Barton is having a bad day. Tea and sympathy help. So does a kiss.

You guys, this is the most adorable thing ever. UGH THEY ARE SO SMITTEN WITH EACH OTHER JKFHLKSJHGDFLGH I CAN'T. <3333

A Different Kind of Love Story by [livejournal.com profile] someidiothasice
--He doesn't delude himself. He knows that the life he leads, the life of an agent, isn't fair to a romantic partner.

This is, without question, something I will carry with me for a long time to come. It somehow manages to reach inside me and gives voice to all the feelings it finds, all the secret hopes and dreams. It made me cry, in that wonderful 'oh thank fuck, someone gets it' way. I can't recommend it enough. <3333 Probably one of the kindest things a person has ever done for me without even knowing they were doing it. :)

Also a supernice person gave me Dreamwidth paid time, to which I say, THANK YOU, SIR/MADAM, YOU ARE ASTOUNDINGLY WONDERFUL. <3333

Basically, I am the luckiest person to have all of you. And I'd be a fool to believe some wanker over all of you. So I shan't make that mistake. ;)

In other news, turns out my cousin is coming to visit this weekend, so I anticipate a very pleasant Friday night and Saturday all round. \0/ To celebrate, I shall make cupcakes (AND THINK OF COULSON AS I BAKE, Y/Y/MFY? ;P) and indulge myself in happy-making things. :D
sirona_fics: (clint/phil)
...Because I just needed some fluff in my life last night. Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] delicatale and [livejournal.com profile] foxxcub who listened to me flail, and to [livejournal.com profile] laria_gwyn for her cheerleading, outstanding ideas, and excellent, wonderfully thorough beta job. I ♥ you guys.

Yes, the title is from That Book. Yeah, see in re: GIANT SAP. I wasn't really kidding. >.> Tattoo based on this design, which is gorgeous.

ETA: Now with amazing art by [livejournal.com profile] essouffle! Look at all of them lounging by the pool, oh my god. *________*


Only his ring finger knows
Clint/Phil
Avengers
PG
~1,450 words

In which the Avengers take advantage of some unexpected downtime around Tony's pool and several of Clint's tattoos are discussed. Including the one just over his heart...

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.

Day 2

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Drop a link to your post in the comments. See if you can rec fanworks that are less likely to be praised: tiny fandoms, rare pairings, fanworks other than stories, lesser known kinks or tropes. Find fanworks that have few to no comments, or creators new to a particular fandom and maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.


Well, you know that any gem I come across, I tend to shout it from the rooftops, so. I'm gonna rec you some of my absolute fucking FAVOURITE stories ever. Plus a new shiny thing that I hope will turn into a trend, because DAYUM.

Considering I have over 1,000 memories entries, this isn't going to be easy. So I'm going to stick to the stories that, today, right this minute ring with me. Those are liable to change within hours, even minutes, but right now, let me tell you about things that make my heart quicken and my blood rush to my head.

Under a cut because it got LONG )
sirona_fics: (Eames)
Day 1

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Drop a link to your post in the comments.



Hmmmmm. Okay, I guess, one for each.

Favourite fic: Well. Each of the fics I write is my favourite in one aspect or another, but I guess it's a toss-up between these two:

Love in the Time of Marmite
--Arthur-is-a-magical-chef fic. Basically. And then there's Eames. And Marmite. But this is mainly a story about Love, always about Love.

A Secret Love
--Regency AU. Lord Arthur Morwellan is desperate -- otherwise he would never have approached such a dangerous gentleman as Mr Gabriel Eames. While they grew up together, a misguided fight in their youth resulted in their estrangement from each other. But Arthur knows that Eames is the only person who can help him now, and he must find a way to gain his assistance -- even if it means deceiving him as to the true identity of the person in need. But what happens when Eames discovers his shocking secret?


Fic I feel like no one ever saw: I posted this around the time of the first LJ DDoS blackout, and it kind of got lost in the middle of the deluge, so. I'm pretty proud of this fic -- I feel it's one of my best, and it did exactly what I wanted it to do. :)

Not Shy of a Spark
--Noir AU. PI Arthur Lake gets called out to what he thinks is a routine case to help out a friend; things get a lot more complicated when he finds out who the victim is and meets William Eames, the person who found the body.


Fic I would say defines me as a creator: That's a really tough one, no doubt about it. But I think I can definitely say that this is one of the best things I have ever done, and it encompasses my undying need for a happy ending, for things working out for my protagonists, even if I put them through hoops first. It is a pretty perfect snapshot of what I'm aiming for as a writer -- lighthearted, yet with a strong emotional core and a resolution that (I hope) leaves the reader smiling.

Darling Buds of May
--When Arthur agrees to help out a desperate customer at the last minute, he has no idea what he's getting himself into. But then that's Eames for you. If only Eames would stop trying to trick his name out of him, everything would be right with the world.


....I honestly have no idea how this turned into such an Inception fest. I guess that fandom challenges me to produce works that I'm proud to call my own, and Arthur and Eames always bring out the writer in me that wants to aim for the stars.


To finish off this edition of Arthur loves his Eamesie, here's an InstaRec for a fic that honestly made me smile so hard. One of the most delightful things I have ever read, without a doubt. This has been Captain Fluff, your hostess for the day.

you are the place I rest my head by [livejournal.com profile] papered
--café!AU. In which Arthur and Eames are uni students, and Eames works at the uni coffee shop.
sirona_fics: (clint/phil)
Having spammed [livejournal.com profile] delicatale with these in a series of increasingly flailtastic emails, I THINK EVERYONE OUGHT TO FEAST THEIR EYES UPON THEM. Let's end the year with a bang.

First up: JEREMY RENNER. BECAUSE THERE SHOULD ALWAYS BE MORE JEREMY RENNER.



JEREMY RENNER + CARS. THIS CAN'T REALLY GET ANY BETTER.

Also there is this SPECTACULAR piece of art by Odora over at dA:


A-team
by *Odora on deviantART

I. CANNOT. STOP. STARING. THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING. *_____________* Can I just say, CLINT'S POSE. *fluttering hearts EVERYWHERE*

And speaking of things I can't stop staring at -- [livejournal.com profile] zoronoa DREW PHIL AND CLINT FOR [livejournal.com profile] delicatale AND I. I AM ALL FLAILY AND TWITTERPATTERED WITH GLEE, BECAUSE JUST LOOK AT THEMMMMM. AJKHFJLFKGHLJFDG PHIIIIIIILLLLLL WITH THE TINY CRINKLES AROUND HIS EYES AND THE LINES AROUND HIS MOUTH AND JFHFJDDJHDG MAN OF MY HEART. ♥♥♥ THEY ARE SUCH BOYFRIENDSSSSSS. <3 You should all go stare at it and give [livejournal.com profile] zoronoa alllll the love!

For all those who get starry-eyed and wet-pantied (it's a word if I say it is, damn it) at the thought/sight of Tom Hiddleston, THIS WILL BE EXTREMELY RELEVANT TO YOUR INTERESTS. Hell, I don't find him all that attractive and even I'm all HHHHHNNNNNGGGGG over it. FOREHEAD WRINKLES + STUBBLE + TOOTHPICK + LEATHER JACKET. MMMMMMMMMMMMM.

In other news, slept extremely poorly last night, and today I am all djhfdjshldfhg WHAT IS BRAIN at work. Happily, it appears that I'll be finishing earlier than anticipated. \0/ \0/ Let's see if words want to make sense for me in the meantime! :D They appear to be working so far..... ROLL ON CHARLES WITH PUPPY.

....If I can bloody stop thinking about this idea [livejournal.com profile] delicatale and I discussed that I write for her, for the auction piece I owe her, where Phil owns and works the night shifts at an all-night cafe, and also BAKES ALLLL THE THINGS. And Clint is a piano bar singer who comes in to unwind two or three nights a week, in the small hours, when there's hardly anyone in but him and Phil and some die-hard insomniac writers, and they get to talking, and Phil bakes for him and talks him down and is basically the Phil Coulson we all know and love, and Clint is cranky and snarky and exhausted yet too wired to go to sleep, and they end up chatting about ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING AND FALL IN LOOOOOOOVE. /sap SO YES. THERE IS THAT. ER. >.> I HAVE TO SAY ALL THIS PRETTY ISN'T HELPING ME STOP THINKING ABOUT THIS PIECE OF SILLINESS.

Lastly: a lovely, lovely song to send the year off in style! :) Thank you, [personal profile] sheafrotherdon, for linking it! :) In conclusion: DIMPLESSSS. <3

Summary: For Kriminalhauptkommissar Erik Lehnsherr, this case will change everything.
Author's Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] raven_lore, who won me for [livejournal.com profile] help_japan all the way back in April. I can't even articulate how grateful I am for her patience and her unfailing support. I hope you enjoy it, darling! ♥ Also enormous thanks to my SuperBeta [livejournal.com profile] zolac_no_miko, who put so much of her time and patience into this. Without her help this fic would not exist, and that's the truth. Huge thanks also to [livejournal.com profile] luninosity and [livejournal.com profile] jewishnotamish7, who volunteered to read this over and outlined some much-needed changes to smooth over remaining plotholes. I would invite you to suspend disbelief as you entered here, although god knows I have done everything in my power for it to read as authentic as possible. Title from Bell X1's song of the same name -- which is more or less the theme song for this fic.


Will you be the card up my sleeve? )
sirona_fics: (charles/erik jazz hands)
All right, first time cross-posting! :D Which I will be doing from now on, because UGH, otherwise I have to re-post all my entries here, which, PAIN IN THE ARSE OR WHAT.

Right, okay. Look, indulge me. Please. I have been thinking about COULSON BAKING since yesterday (all day), and now I would like ALLLLL THE BAKING/BAKERY/COOKING AUS EVER, PLEASE AND THANK YOU. Rec me stuff. Things you've loved reading, I don't particularly care in which fandom, I WILL READ THEM ALLLLL.

Writing has been mostly /fail these few days -- only 10K or so overall on X-Pride II, which for me is a bit lame. STILL, PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE. \0/ \0/ Pretty much half-way done now, with the plot sorted out for the rest of it, which is almost half the work done! :D :D Charles is about to find a puppy on his way home, when he gets caught in a rainstorm. :D :D ALLLLL THE FLUFFFFF. <3

But otherwise, the cop!Erik AU is almost completely finished!! \0/ \0/ It's now been passed to my gamma readers, who will tell me if it is actually readable as it is. <3 THANKS, YOU GUYS. Sooooo there ought to be a 43K Charles/Erik adventure romp posted in the next couple of days! \0/ \0/ \0/

Speaking of, MY [profile] secret_mutant GIFT IS UP!!! AND IT IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL, GLORIOUS THING EVER. afdjhjlfkhldfhdfh LOOK AT IT. JUST LOOK. AJAHLJHGLJFHLDFHGDFH ALLLLLLLL THE FLUFFY ~FEEEEEEEELINGS!! ♥__________♥ sfjghfdjgh I CANNOT EVEN. I AM SO BLESSED. :')

And now a meme! :D (I foresee a few of these in the coming days, what with end-of-year and all.) Stolen from [personal profile] amcw177.

Give me a character or a pairing (or both) and I will tell you three tidbits of my personal headcanon for them.

GO ONNNN, YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO LET ME RAMBLE AT YOU TILL THE COWS COME HOME. <3<3<3

Okay so totally spamming you again, BUT. I have just read this story, and it is just. It has made me so, so happy. I mean, I could post my entire comment to the author, which is basically HEARTS IN EYES LIKE WHOA, and waxing lyrical about content and style and visuality, but I think you ought to just read it yourselves.

Cold Making Warmth by Anonymouse.
Steve settles upon the few things he knows for sure: that the days are short, and it's cold, and he doesn't mind looking dumb for making the effort. So screw the protocol, whether it exists or not – he's giving gifts.

BEAUTIFUL. SO. BEAUTIFUL.

Not to mention that this story has given me THE MOST RABID PLOT BUNNY. [SPOILER] for the Coulson arc in the fic )

Okay, so notice how I COMPLETELY FAILED to leave my [profile] dream_holiday gift until tomorrow? YEAH.

Thanks for the Wings by [personal profile] foxxcub.
This was going to be his last Christmas with his best friend, and Arthur could hardly stand it.

BASICALLY THIS IS THE STORY OF MY HEART. I can't even tell you how many times I teared up to this, and then grinned like an idiot; it made my chest ache, and my eyes leak, and my heart grow approximately fifteen sizes. IT IS THE BEST THING, AND IT IS ALLLLLL MIIIIIINE. *________* MY HEART, I CANNOT EVEN. I can't remember the last time it's had this much exercise. <3<3<3
sirona_fics: (charles/erik)
If I have to stare at the computer screen for even five more minutes, I might throw up, that's how hungry/tired I am. I actually not here at all; no, I'm signing off my shift and going home to watch baby Nicky rip apart his first Christmas present that I specifically gift-wrapped so he could have something to tear~! :D :D

In other news, I wrote 7K of Regency Domestic Marriage Fluff (a.k.a. X-Pride II) today, and I am all set to write the scene that rolls the fic over to half-way done tomorrow. HUGE scene. HUGE. Like, it'll probably end up being at least 4K just by itself, I should think. As of now I'm about 300 words off 30K, which, JESUS. Just under half-way done. Breathe, Neve.

Also also my [profile] dream_holiday fic got posted today, AND I JUST ABOUT PASSED OUT FROM EXCITEMENT. YOU GUYS, MY AUTHOR IS [personal profile] foxxcub. I MEAN. ♥________♥ I SWEAR, I DON'T KNOW HOW I'LL GET THROUGH TONIGHT WITHOUT SAYING BAGS TO THE LOT OF THEM AND HOLING UP WITH MY LAPTOP TO READ IT ASJHFAKHFDKJLGHSLDGH *____________*

Lastly, Happy Holidays, everyone, however you celebrate! I LOVE YOU ALL, SO MUCH. I leave you with this, because it just gave me the biggest smile, and I hope it makes you smile, too. ♥ (Ganked off [personal profile] nikibee)

Notes: Co-written with [livejournal.com profile] delicatale, who said to me, Clint/Phil Coffee Shop AU, and much like Phil, I fell helplessly for her charms. Endless thanks to [livejournal.com profile] laria_gwyn, who has been an absolute trooper and helped an enormous amount to polish this. ♥ Thanks also must go to all other Coffee Shop AUs out there, which I'm sure we've borrowed from without even realising. :) And to everyone who was so fantastically enthusiastic about this story, and made apt suggestions that we have shamelessly taken advantage of! <3


If Phil has one addiction, it’s caffeine, and the coffee in the NSA offices is so terribly rank he has no choice but to nose around to find a viable source of espresso on a regular basis. )

God, I'm dead on my feet by now, but I just wanted to say,

The Boston Job by [livejournal.com profile] cmonkatiekatie.
--Arthur can’t seem to make his schedule match up with Eames’, but that’s cool. It’s not like he misses him or anything.

So quiet, so understated, so beautifully complex and full of warm fuzzies and feeeeeels. <3 Eames was wonderful in this, wonderfully written, and oh, Arthur, I just wanted to snuggle him. Also, spectacularly good Ariadne/Yusuf. I just loved this fic with all my heart. <3

And now for bed, for real. And when I get up, I shall post, too! :D
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: (spruce tree)
I rec this every year since it first posted and I read it, what, three years ago now? And it remains one of my most favourite fics of all time. So I thought, hey, lots of new people around here, TIME TO SPREAD MOAR JOY.

Make the Yuletide Gay, by [livejournal.com profile] aggybird.
--In which we find romance, angst, a dash of mystery, bad puns, and Santa Jr.

[livejournal.com profile] aggybird is one of my favourite original slashers out there. Every fic I have read by her has been sheer delight, and filled me with unspeakable joy. And this is a fic that I read every year, at least once as Christmas approaches. Yes, my icon is from there, and yes, it's hilarious and heartwrenching and happy-making in equal measures. And god, it contains some of the best, BEST pining that I have ever read in. My. Life. That scene, you'll know when you get to it, and the couple scenes following, my stomach clenches in a ball of aching hopelessness and desperation every time, even when I KNOW full well that it will allllll be fiiiiiine. So, SO fucking good.

And so. If you love good writing, if you love puns and fairytales and boys in love and pining and fluff, this is the fic for you. I adore it more than I can say. I hope to make at least one of your Christmases, like this makes mine! :D In fact, I rather think I shall read it now. At just under 16K, it's the perfect length for a treat. ♥ I can only hope that some marvellous, talented person can do the same for the, say, Avengers fandom, because then my life would be COMPLETE.
