sirona_fics: (plot? what plot?)
Here it is, the dreaded Masterlist! Sorted by fandom, pairing and date (latest first). All these fics can also be found on AO3. A side note on transforming my work -- the short statement here is that I WOULD BE BEYOND HONOURED. I am an enormous fan of podfics, and I can only dream that someone would find my things worthy of recording. Likewise art -- seriously, if anyone wants to do anything for them, I would mostly be floored that anyone thinks them worthy of prettying up. So there is that.


Avengers 'Verse )



Harry Potter )



Hawaii Five-0 )



Inception )



Metanoia )



Naruto )



Sherlock )



Teen Wolf )



X-Men: First Class )
sirona_fics: (nat thanks you for your cooperation)
Total number of fics: 44

Total wordcount: 341394 (Gotta say this is MUCH easier now we have AO3 stats! :D)

Total number of fandoms: 6

My favorite story of mine this year: Hmmm. That's always a terribly tough question. I think it's a toss-up between I've got you under my skin and Don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet. I'm the proudest of how those two turned out.

Story most underappreciated by the universe, in my opinion: Hmmm. Possibly Here comes your man? Could be I posted it right before Marvel Big Bang went live, and it kind of got lost in the middle of all those awesome long stories? IDK.

Most fun story: Again, it's a toss-up between From Russia With Love and (I can say this now, because reveals are imminent) the Yuletide treat I wrote, Have a Very Merry 00 Christmas. That last one was a delight to brainstorm and write, and the first one, with Bond meeting Bucky -- no comment necessary. :D

Most sexy story: Well. According to the comments I got for them, it's a toss-up between So turn around and I'll pick up the slack and It's in the water, baby. Although In the backseat put up a very good fight, too! :)

Story with single sweetest moment: Personally, I adore the moment in My heart was wrapped up in clover where Clint turns up to make things right. :')

Most unintentionally *telling* story: Oh, god. I think it really is Don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet. So much of myself went into writing this story, I was incredibly nervous posting it. :) Runner-ups have to be And I'll cross oceans like never before and I swear I'll drive all night just to buy you some shoes.

Fic that shifted my own perceptions of the characters: Science and Progress (do not speak as loud as my heart), I think. That's the story that made me stop and think and have a revelation about Steve that's now firmly into head canon territory. :) Also, I will ask you to open my door from your side, which I wrote with [livejournal.com profile] delicatale, for a story that made me look at all the characters in just a slightly different way. I still want to write the follow-up to that so badly.

Biggest disappointment: Hmmm. I don't think I had one? I was disappointed that I've got you under my skin didn't do better? I expected it to do better. Maybe I'm just too involved in that story to see it objectively? IDK.

Biggest surprise: I think it was how extremely very well And I'll cross oceans like never before did? I did not expect that at all! :D 911 Kudos, over 25,000 hits. I'm just ajhkfhdsf over it! :D I am also extremely gratified by just how amazingly well Don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet is doing, since like I mentioned before, it was maybe the most personal story I've yet to write in that fandom. :) Just thrilled about it! <3

Hardest story to write: I think that was I've got you under my skin, which is why I wish it had done better. It took me weeks to get going, I kept getting stuck, I think I re-wrote the plot outline about six times, drew plot maps. Many of you will remember me tearing my hair out over it. And then I ended up writing it in a single week when I unblocked myself (largely thanks to bloody Bucky Barnes, who ended up taking over. :DDD).

Easiest story to write: Quite possibly it was Only his ring finger knows? It took me maybe 45 minutes to write, and it's ended up one of my most popular stories this year. :)

This year's theme and the story that demonstrates it most: Oooh, that's a tough one! Well, I have to say, this year was an Avengers (and Clint/Coulson) year through and through. So I'll have to choose a Clint/Coulson story -- and I can't think of anything better than Conditional Value At Risk. It illustrates everything I adore about this fandom: boys in love, pining, how well they fit together, as well as showcasing my favourite things: alternate universes, coffee shop AUs, Clint and Phil being themselves, a sweet kind of rightness. :)


All in all, it's been a great year to write! :D Didn't write as much as 2011 (which was truly an INSANELY good writing year), but I wrote more complex, more thought-out stories? I'm so happy with how my writing is progressing. And I'm so blessed that my stories have brought me so many amazingly wonderful people for friends! <3 I love you guys so much. :')

I'd be really curious to see which of my stories people thought would fit these categories, if not the ones I've listed? Do you agree/disagree with me? Please do tell me! <3
sirona_fics: (charles/erik jazz hands)
Post-coffee shop AU and Avengers RBB, I find myself at a bit of a loose end as to what to focus on writing next. Hence, my first post in like 6 MONTHS OR SOMETHING WHAT. /0\ Must admit, have found it easier to just stick to twitter recently, what with all the writing. Really gonna update that masterlist after I post this. >.>

So. Anyway. Time to get a vote in, because apparently nothing is screaming loud enough to get written right now. Thus, a poll! Help me out, guys! <3

A Poll!
sirona_fics: (nat thanks you for your cooperation)
It's been a strange old place in my head these past few weeks. Plot bunnies are breeding like... well, bunnies, but I can't seem to settle down to writing any one of them. It's incredibly, hellishly frustrating.

So. [livejournal.com profile] 17pansies and I decided that, in honour of moving into my new flat, I should declare this week WRITE ALL THE SHIT WEEK, with a side helping of MIND IN THE GUTTER WEEK.

What that entails: basically, giving yourself a break. Newsflash: Fandom is supposed to be FUN!! (Shocking, I know. Sometimes I forget that one, too. /0\) We do this shit because we LOVE it. We love writing, mixing, arting, podficcing, vidding. So take a project, any project; it doesn't have to be big and important; it doesn't have to be 5763895642389 words long. It just has to be FUN. Write something. Anything. Can be silly PWP or delicious angst/romance or just a slice of life, a situation that catches your eye. This ties in with the High School AU challenge from last month, too. :)

The purpose of this week (which will run until Sunday next week (24th June, incl.)) is to get you to write again. Kick-start your muse. Use it to finish a project you've been working for a while; use it to get all the writing/bunny-related frustration out of your system; use it to start that one project you've been meaning to for a while. No pressure, just the mindset that this coming week, you are going to WRITE, GODDAMN IT, AND NOTHING AND NO ONE CAN TELL YOU NOT TO, BECAUSE YOU DESERVE TO LET OFF SOME STEAM, TAKE TIME TO YOURSELF AND LET THE WORDS COME. This week is an amnesty for any and all projects. Pick one. Pick a dozen. Go back to that bingo square you signed up for ages ago. I know I'm totally guilty of letting all the plot bunnies bury me alive, unable to pick one and just write it till it's done. /0\ (Usually my muse decides for me, picks one and rides me hard until it's done, even as I curse him under my breath. He's been a bit quiet of late, though. WELL, I'M ABOUT TO WELL AND TRULY WAKE HIM UP. >:D)

So my goal for this week is to a) finish something I started SO LONG AGO IT'S ALMOST EMBARRASSING TO ADMIT TO, and b) pick a bunny and write it. Pick your own goal; set yourself a challenge. THEN GET PRODUCING ALL THE DELICIOUSNESS EVER. <33333

Feel free to band out ideas in this post; talk to each other, chat, bounce thoughts, basically ENJOY THE FUCK OUT OF YOURSELVES. FANDOM IS FUN. It's CHOCK-FULL of amazing people who think outside the box and delight in helping other like-minded people. Let's make it a week of celebrating all that we love about this amazing thing we've got going. Like I mentioned, I'm moving into my new flat later today, and basically I can't think of anyone I would rather rock the joint with for a housewarming party than you lot, every single one of you. AND SINCE I CAN'T SHIP YOU ALL OVER, HOUSEWARMING PARTY ON MY JOURNAL!! \0/ THE BAR IS OPEN, PICK YOUR POISON. ♥♥♥
sirona_fics: (let's poke it with a stick)
4am is possibly not quite the right time to be putting together a meme, but damn it, I can't sleep. :( So. Top Ten fics on AO3 by hits:


1. First Impressions, XMFC, Charles/Erik. (14809)
This would be the P&P rewrite that I obsessed over last year, and wrote in something like four days flat. To say I'm surprised this is my top-read fic (and by such a margin) is an understatement. But I guess everyone loves Lizzy and Darcy and Erik and Charles, and putting the two together -- it was practically necessary. Lord only knows when I'll finish the sequel to that. 40K in, about another 20K to come. One day. *sigh*

2. I want you to want me, H50, Steve/Danny. (11070)
My H50 Big Bang, and a whopper of a story. I'm quite certain it's one of the best things I've ever done, and will ever do. I'm damn proud of this thing. <3

3. Happiness is Homemade, H50, Steve/Danny. (8027)
This was co-written with the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] delicatale, and undoubtedly this good because of it. This was our joint H50 Big Bang, and an utter joy to write.

4. All my heart I will lay down precisely at your feet, H50, Steve/Danny. (7782)
I'm surprised by this. This story, I adored writing it in its entirety. It's ridiculously self-indulgent, straight-up Harlequin trope, which is a huge weakness of mine. I guess I'm not alone! :)

5. A million ways to be a good one, H50, Steve/Danny. (7502)
Again co-written with [livejournal.com profile] delicatale; we enjoyed ourselves immensely while imagining what Danny's parents would be like if they ever came to visit. <3

6. I'll see your heart (and I'll raise you mine), XMFC, Charles/Erik. (7503)
I'm actually shocked to see this here. I'm forever convinced that I botched up this story terribly. This is another one of those self-indulgent AU Romances, and yep, I did have a blast writing it, even if the edits on this were horrific. :( I'm thrilled to see people reading it, no lie. <3

7. And I'll cross oceans like never before, Avengers, Clint/Coulson. (6855)
So far my favourite thing that I have written this year. Utterly self-indulgent and unashamedly full of allll the feels. <333 Delighted to see people reading it!

8. A little bit of your taste (in my mouth), Avengers, Clint/Coulson. (6020)
Again co-written with [livejournal.com profile] delicatale (I sense a pattern here :D). This was pretty much the moment when I fell into this pairing head-first, without looking back, because come on. Once you write a coffeeshop AU for a fandom, you're pretty much in it for the long haul. :D

9. A Strange Fear, Sherlock, Sherlock/John. (5800)
It's... strange to see this here. This was a short story that slammed into me when I read that one line in another story (you'll know the one; it's the thing that starts the ball rolling in the first place). I guess this dug pretty deep, and that's why people can relate to it -- because we all have that one fear, deep inside. :)

10. To Sleep, Perchance To Dream, H50, Steve/Danny. (5732)
Another short and sweet story, from my early days in the fandom. I'm surprised to see it so high up, but then again I have always gotten wonderful reviews for it, so. <3


Oooh, what a nice, even showing! I am very pleased, and thrilled in the extreme to see people reading my stuff at all, let alone in such numbers! <3333 I LOVE YOU ALL.
sirona_fics: (clint/phil)
God, I haven't posted in ages. I'm sorry, I'm just, overwhelmed-busy. Been away for the weekend to gran's, just came back, and of course no internet there. I've only got the strength to log onto twitter at this point, sadly. :(

It's baby Nicky's birthday today!! \0/ Little boy is one year old! <3 It's been a strange, amazing, sad, tough, awesome year. I'm happy to still be around, and I'm happy to have all you guys around with me. ♥ /reflection

In other news, the Cap_IM RBB is KICKING MY ARSE. Happily, found out today that I had my deadlines all mixed up -- in fact, it's not this Friday (13th April), but rather 24th April! WHICH IS A GINORMOUS RELIEF, LET ME TELL YOU. There's so much of this story yet to tell, it's all I can do at the moment to keep up.

Jesus, I'm sorry, I'm just, so tired right now. Drove back from Sofia this morning, after faffing around on twitter until almost half one last night, so hardly enough sleep. Haven't been sleeping all that well, either. Fucking full moon. :((( So all I want right now is to take a nap, but I suspect baby Nicky should be awake soon, so IDK how feasible that is. :)

ANYWAY. I want to make a nice long-ass rec list for Clint/Coulson, because IT IS AMAZING AND THERE SHOULD BE MORE PEOPLE INTO IT. :D And also because it would be so much easier to point people to it when they ask me. So I guess time to compile some fics! :D Tell me, you guys -- which ones are your favourites? Which ones should definitely be put on this list? That would make my job tons easier. <3

I hope everyone's doing as well as possible! ♥

I read this fascinating article today (seriously mind-blowing, I heartily recommed you give it a go) -- and now I would like to talk about it. :)

Okay so I have maybe been having A LOT OF THOUGHTS since I read this. Isn't it fascinating what the brain perceives as 'real'? This is The Matrix all over again -- what is real? Is it real just because you can smell and touch it? Or is it just as real when it's only our brains that perceive it? After all, what is 'real' if not impulses that the brain interprets? So who's to say that by reading, and writing as we do; and by having deep, meaningful relationships online with people we have never met, that they aren't real? That we aren't just as loved by them as by people we have seen, smelled, touched? God, I could read 48754974 words on the subject. This ties in neatly with the AI thoughts I've been having of recent -- sometimes I wish I'd had the foresight to go into neuroscience while I was at uni, because I could talk about this shit FOREVER.


Gives a whole new meaning to 'lost in a good book', not to mention living vicariously through so-called 'fictional characters' -- because aren't we, all of us, fictional characters to other people? I mean, really? Certainly we are to sociopaths, but why is it easier to insult or bully someone online, for example, as it is to do it to someone IRL, even though that person online is just as real as the person sitting next to you on the train, only they're sitting a continent away from you?


I have, for the past five years, lived my life through fictional characters so much more than in reality. And anyway, who the fuck are people to tell me that to me, this isn't just as real as their spouses they come home to every night? Who's to say that I haven't been in a relationship for the past eight-odd years, when I am in one every night when I open up a book, or my 'to-read' list of fic bookmarks? It's really all a question of perception, and how we choose to interpret our own experiences. Who's to say that this isn't my real life, rather than a state of fugue while I wait for it to begin?


...Wow, I appear to have A LOT OF THOUGHTS on the subject. But it's just so utterly fascinating to me. Descartes ftw! :) By all means, if you find this as fascinating as I do, come talk to me! :)

sirona_fics: (hunky army smiling cap)
GUYS

GUYS

THANK YOU FOR THE DRAGONS. ♥♥♥ THEY ARE THE MOST ADORABLEST AND I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH. :')))

Okay, that's... actually no, that's not all I wanted to say, I have two memes lined up that I've yet to find the time to fill, but ajhjfghfjdkghdfkhg I'm having a bit of trouble with human-to-human interaction right now that isn't over email. :( I'm reading everything, I just, it's a bit of a superhuman effort right now to comment, for IDK what reason. :(((

On the other hand, have finished two WIPs today -- the D/s story I flailed about at some length over here, and that follow-up to [livejournal.com profile] foxxcub's story, and [livejournal.com profile] delicatale and I are almost done with the Garage!AU, and tomorrow hopefully I should finish another WIP and maybe make a start on either puppy!fic for the Magical Transformation square on my Avengers Cliche bingo table or the Cap_IronMan RBB pic prompt I signed up for. IDK what I'll come up with! :D The D/s fic at least should be up in the next couple of days, once my darling [livejournal.com profile] laria_gwyn has had a chance to look it over.

Okay, and now I'm going to bed because I'm so fucking tired I just want to pass the fuck out.

...This has been a post. >.>;;
sirona_fics: (clint/phil)
You guys, first of all I am STILL OVERWHELMED with all the vgifts from the past few days. I JUST CAN'T. I have no idea what I've done to deserve you lot BUT I HOPE I KEEP ON DOING IT. :'))))))) Thank you. Seriously. All of you, you can't even imagine how ridiculously giddy and humble they made me. I love you all. <33333

Secondly, I would like to officially announce that I have taken leave of my senses. Lost my sanity. Gone round the twist. And assorted other diagnoses. I am sitting here, at work, somehow in possession of NINE THOUSAND, THREE HUNDRED WORDS OF A SEQUEL TO A FIC THAT [livejournal.com profile] foxxcub HASN'T EVEN FINISHED YET. YES, THAT'S RIGHT. NO, YOU DIDN'T READ WRONG. AND IT'S NOT DONE. OH, NO. THERE ARE MOAR WORDS AND MORE THINGS TO HAPPEN IN IT.

Phil Coulson and Clint Barton, YOU ARE LIFE RUINERS. LIFE. RUINERS. I HAVE AT LEAST FIVE OTHER FICS (INCLUDING A BIG BANG) THAT ARE MORE IMPORTANT/HAVE A HIGHER PRIORITY RATING THAN THIS/I HAVE BEEN WRITING AND PLANNING FOR LONGER. WHYFOR, BRAIN. /0\ /0\ /0\

Er. Apologies. Don't know when sanity might be recovered, although it needs to happen soon before people kill me for how late their stuff is. >.>;; ([livejournal.com profile] delicatale, PLEASE DON'T KILL ME. :((( WE ARE STILL WRITING ALL THE WORDS EVER, AND I AM STILL GOING TO FINISH THE SINGER!CLINT AU SOMETIME SOON, I PROMISE. DDDDDD:)

...Having said that, I would like to make it known that THEY ARE SO IN LOVE THAT THEY ARE WARPING THE WORLD AROUND THEM UNTIL I CAN'T SEE ANYTHING ELSE FOR MILES. OH, GOD.

I had other things to say, but, uh, I checked the word counter in GDocs a moment ago and, well. This is what you're getting. Courtesy of overactive plot bunnies and my ridiculous brain. /0\ /0\
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. :(

Fuck. :(

Well, my plan for writing today got totally fucked, several times over. First, there's seven inches of snow outside that have fallen since last night, and it's still coming down like nobody's business. Second, even after I got to my coffeeshop in this weather, I found out that my mum never charged up my laptop after using it the night before, and it was completely dead. Third, turns out that my coffeeshop is no longer the coffeeshop I loved -- they've gone and sold it to another chain, and it was completely different, which threw me out for a loop. All in all, THE UNIVERSE CLEARLY DID NOT WANT ME TO WRITE FILTHY D/S PORN. I AM DISTRAUGHT. :((((((((

Right. Fuck it, I'll write at home. I'm gonna stick my headphones on and drown out the world and just immerse myself in Clint and Phil. People have been incredibly accommodating and excited about this, and now I have about five different things that I intend to stuff into this fic -- so it's going to end up a group effort that I just compile, BUT THAT IS OKAY. I CAN ROLL WITH THAT, NO PROBLEM.

Okay. All right. Fuck you, world. THIS SHIT IS HAPPENING, I DON'T EVEN CARE. I've even got the perfect song to get me in the mood for writing smut -- it worked fantastically well the last couple times! :D I think it's going to be my porn song from now on, HO YUS.

...The fact that I have a porn song kind of makes me ridiculously giddy and gleeful and happy. XDDD

BTW, while we're on the subject of Clint/Phil (which, let's be honest, seems to be all the time right now), everyone should go and read Something Quiet and Minor and Peaceful and Slow by [livejournal.com profile] torakowalski, because it is slow and delicious and so perfectly in character that I wanted to weep with joy. My face ached by the end from smiling so hard. ALSO DID I MENTION IT'S HOT AS ALL GET-OUT? BECAUSE IT IS.

...In other news I woke up this morning to an email from [livejournal.com profile] foxxcub that contained the first porn scene from her College!Clint/Phil fic. AND GUYS, I THINK SHE BROKE ME. I gotta tell you, I am not exaggerating when I say that it's, without a doubt, one of the hottest, most affecting making-out and first-time scenes that I HAVE EVER READ. IDK if it was the mood I was in, or the fact that I actually know the backstory of this, and I have been talking to her about it for over two weeks, and I'm REALLY FUCKING INVESTED IN THIS STORY, but FUCK ME, THAT WAS SO HOT. JUST YOU WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE IT.

RIGHT. BACK TO WRITING PORN. \0/ \0/
sirona_fics: (the girl who waited (in the garden))
Boosting the signal--

Exceptionally interesting essay on History and Historiography here: there are many names in history, and all of them are ours by [livejournal.com profile] postcardmystery. I literally could not look away once I started reading it, and not just because it elaborates on topics that have long been my personal belief. If you're into history, this is fascinating stuff.

All right. Now I'm off writing X-Pride II. I have started sending pieces out to the two people who (long ago) volunteered to be my second set of eyes, and initial reactions have been... promising. :D

Failing that, the singer!Clint/baker!Phil thing has also been going rather well. :D WORDS ARE WORKING. \0/ \0/ We'll see how long that one's gonna last. I've still got White Collar and a bunch of the Oscar nominees to watch. Procrastination, I HAZ IT.
sirona_fics: (plot? what plot?)
...Fuck it, I'm downloading Grimm, even though I need another TV show like I need a bullet in my brainpan. I have been convinced. Spent an hour last night waxing lyrical to a family friend (with whome we share quite a bunch of TV shows, he's such a fanboy despite being my parents' age :D) about Sherlock and how bleedin' incredible all the acting and Martin Freeman and everyone and Molly and JOHN and BC and Lestrade and Mycroft and JOHN were, and as a result he's plenty excited to watch it now! :D

THE BAMFEST BAMF WHO EVER BAMFED )

WATSON, MARRY ME. ♥___________♥

I also have White Collar 3x11 on my laptop, and I'm prepared for ALLLL THE OT3 FEELS again. <33333 Show, I have missed you so.

Was rudely awakened at half nine this morning by my nephew, whom I then had to coax to sleep again. If you've never had to convince a cranky nine-month-old that yes, he really does want to go to sleep, you have no idea of the tricks I had to employ. I cycled through the widest diversity of bands until I hit on The Beatles' Here Comes the Sun and he finally relented. Upon which I fetched Rivers of London (which continues to be in every way delightful, I am totally ordering part two as we speak), and spent a happy forty-five mins lazing in bed next to him.

Then he woke up, and I could make myself the best cup of coffee in the entire world. A couple days ago my beloved [livejournal.com profile] zolac_no_miko's Christmas present arrived -- she had sent me (amongst other things) a pack of Ka'u coffee beans. IT IS THE MOST AMAZING THING I HAVE EVER TASTED. Darling, I'm sold, hook, line and sinker. <3333333333 jhgfhjfhslkfjghfdk you guys, you have no idea how delicious that thing is. It tastes of sunshine and living things and lush green valleys. I am going to smack anyone who wants to steal some of my stash so hard. Even baby Nicky approved; he wouldn't let go of the pack, and was totally going after my mug before I whisked it away. :DD

Anyway. Feeling much better today. Certainly a vast amount less fragile, despite the early wake-up call. Also, words happened last night!! \0/ \0/ For which I totally blame my enablers. XD The singer!Clint story has a complete first scene now, at 2,500 words! :D And [livejournal.com profile] laria_gwyn has been invaluable, with her smart, delicious ideas, and badass googlefu, and much-needed support, and just plain being wonderful. ...As a result of which I also have just over 1,000 words of a Pepper/Phil thingie? Those of you who listened to me yammer on about them and told me it was THE BEST IDEA AND NOT MAD AT ALL are also to blame. :DDD I'm... pretty pleased with what I wrote, but words were still being conniving bastards, and I think it needs a wee bit of work -- it read a bit clumsy last night. Could just be me beeing a moody bitch, of course. But it shall be up soon! AND THEN [livejournal.com profile] laria_gwyn IS GOING TO WRITE THE NEXT PART AND SO ON AND SO FORTH AND IT IS GOING TO BE DELICIOUS. \0/ \0/ \0/ \0/ \0/ Simple, innocent (for now, because I have plans for the two of them, ho yus) fun writing, OH HOW I'VE MISSED YOU. :') Also it's been I don't even know how long since I've written anything het -- no pairing has really grabbed me, for so long, and this is going to be a wonderfully useful exercise! <3

So yes. Words! White Collar! Rivers of London! Amazeballs space ficlets from [livejournal.com profile] delicatale! The start of an EPIC POST-TRF FIX-IT FIC from [livejournal.com profile] irisbleufic!! Pretty damn good going all round, me thinks. :D And now I'm going to faff about all day, I imagine. I'm not planning anything -- just see where the day takes me. I'm sorely in need of just such a no-pressure-do-whatever day. <3 First day in a while when I've been excited rather than frustrated about writing! I might work on shit! I might watch telly! I might read! DAY-OFF GOODNESS, COME TO ME. <3333
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.

--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.

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

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 )

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)

"It ís a time-honored tradition at Navy homecomings - one lucky sailor is chosen to be first off the ship for the long-awaited kiss with a loved one. On Wednesday, for the first time, the happily reunited couple was gay." Picture, video.




Right, I'm off to rip packing paper and eat alllll the food.

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

Look. I want you to know that I would have resisted. I would have. I could have done it, damn it. I even managed to resist the Bucky table, although it cost me something, I don't mind telling you.

But then [livejournal.com profile] kellifer_fic claimed the Cliche table from [livejournal.com profile] avengers_tables, and I got a good look at it.

And basically, that's all she wrote, folks. Like I said to her, I've never met a cliche I didn't like/couldn't subvert until I liked it. So, really, this was a foregone conclusion.

Cliche

pretending to be a couple woke up married magical transformation inebriated confessions "It was a dark and stormy night..."
forced bonding coitus interruptus "...and they lived happily ever after." woke up on the wrong side of the bed undercover operation
shopping for curtains "you had me at hello" huddling for warmth amnesia soulmates
kids or babies fulfilling a prophesy/destiny just in the nick of time telepathy mistaken identity
not really dead phobias in the future... time travel relying on the enemy


DAMN YOU, [livejournal.com profile] shinysylver AND [livejournal.com profile] somehowunbroken, YOU HORRIBLE ENABLERS, YOU.
