Warnings: modern AU with powers, allusions to torture, mentions of war, graphic depictions of violence, playing fast and loose with canon, no more than vague knowledge of how US immigration and German policing works (all of it gained from the internet), angst, pining, Erik being Erik, men being stupid about their ~feeeelings, fluff.
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? )

Disclaimer: Definitely not mine. They belong to Chris Nolan, but bless him for giving them to the world!
Warnings: angst, third person viewpoint, allusions to violence, epistolary fic.
Summary: It’s weird, how someone she’s never met, never will meet, likely, feels closer to her than her own mother; how the voice of a stranger has become so important to her that it can lift or sink her, fill her with trepidation for their safety and well-being, make her feel a part of something bigger than herself.
Author’s Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] fred_bear, for her generous donation to [livejournal.com profile] help_japan. Thank you, darling! Her prompt was Set Fire To The Third Bar (lyrics here). This is a story about longing, and not so patient waiting, but mostly about what it means to be in love. Very experimental, first time I've written third-person-viewpoint. Thanks and half of my soul as always go to [livejournal.com profile] zolac_no_miko for her unending, relentless support and a most helpful sharp eye! [livejournal.com profile] fred_bear, you have been a sweetheart and so very patient. I just hope this is at least a little like what you were hoping for! ♥ The user account I've made up is completely fictitious. There might very well be someone with that username out there, but it sadly won't be Eames!

Er.

So! Remember that ranty post about words not making sense and not being able to write because my brain wouldn't let me?

Yeah.

Word count for today:

  • 7,000 words on the H50 Big Bang that has sat languishing in my Gdocs for the better part of three months, until today I suddenly had a beginning, and I squeed and leapt to the keyboard, and then... there was more story in my head. Quite a bit more story. Um. I estimate it's only a quarter done? Here's the trouble I have when I sit down with the express intent of writing long stories -- they end up being gigantic. Part 1/3 is finished; part 2/3 is looking like it's going to be AT LEAST twice the size of part 1, and part 3 I imagine is going to be about the same size as 1. WHAT IS THIS EVEN, WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF. WHY, BRAIN, WHY??

    Dear Muse,

    I hate you. You LIVE to torture me.

    Sincerely,
    Your writer.


    I am so incredibly happy with what I have so far, I don't want to talk about it in case I jinx it! This is the 'story pouring out of me after it's been perculating for ages' approach. It tends to work best. Suffice it to say there is A Lot of Danny angst, and he's just about ready to more his 16/17-year-old (age TBC) Jersey ass to Hawai'i. EXCITING OR WHAT?

  • 1,100 words on the first out of three help_japan stories I'm writing. THIS IS NOW FINISHED, pending beta/edits/epic freakout that it's NO GOOD AT ALL. It's... very different from what I've written so far, and it's kinda experimental. I really like it at the mo; the freakout, I imagine, will be along the lines that my recipient will hate it. D:

    OH GOD MY BETA IS GOING TO HATE ME WHEN I DUMP ALL THIS WORK ON HER. D:

    I've made a bunch of other offers at [livejournal.com profile] help_japan. I sort of started checking the Interesting Stuff post (which is full of so much awesome, OMG, how did I not look before?), and I got to thinking -- I actually have a bunch of signed first editions of books at my house! That's what working at The Bookshop did for me, I guess. So I had a nosey, and this is the loot I managed to unearth:

    1. A signed first edition copy of The Ring of Words: Tolkien and the Oxford English Dictionary by Peter Gilliver, Jeremy Marshall and Edmund Weiner, OUP (2006). The book is in pristine condition. Link to auction HERE.

    2. A beautiful first edition copy of Elegance by Kathleen Tessaro, Harper Collins (2003). The book is in pristine condition, the only wear and tear that of sitting on my bookshelf. It's beautifully made -- the pages are lined in black, it has an inbuilt bookmark, and the cover has a soft pearly sheen. Link to auction HERE.

    3. A signed first edition copy of The Book of General Ignorance: A Quite Interesting Book compiled by John Lloyd and John Mitchinson, Faber and Faber (2006). The book is in pristine condition; it's the book containing questions and answers from the British show QI, hosted by Stephen Fry. Link to auction HERE.

    4. A signed first edition copy of Paradise Lost: An Illustrated Edition with Introduction by Philip Pullman, OUP (2005). The book is in excellent condition; there's a slight mark on the book jacket, as you can see in the picture. The copy is signed by Philip Pullman. Link to auction HERE.

    5. A signed limited first edition copy of Peter Pan in Scarlet: The Official Sequel by Geraldine McCaughrean, OUP (2006). The book is in pristine condition; it's one of only 1500 limited first edition copies signed by the author. Link to auction HERE.


    6. I am also donating a year's worth of letters and postcards from Bulgaria, one per month. All will be handwritten, and I'll include as much stuff as possible -- pictures of my city, parks, the flowes on my balcony, anything you want, really. Me and my cousin are planning a two-week long trip around the country this summer, so I'll be able to collect lots of strange and interesting Bulgarian bits and pieces. Link to auction is HERE.

    The more I watch, the more horrified I get. This really puts life in perspective for me, as I guess it does for oh so many people out there.

    I've made an offering of fic or beta job over at [livejournal.com profile] help_japan. Minimum of 2000 words for fic, beta of fic of any length; one fic/beta job per person for the three highest bidders. I don't know if anyone's going to want to bid on me, but at least I feel like I'm doing my bit.

    I'm starting work on my dissertation tomorrow, for real this time. I have no idea if I'll even be able to write that fic I have due this Saturday; I'll do my best, though. I just feel so unsettled right now; I wonder if it'll end up bursting out of me in millions of words of fic, or if it's going to fizzle out for a while. I'm thinking the former, frankly. I always work better under pressure.

    In other news, drove for five and a half hours today to see my gran. I can barely keep my eyes open, but I can't look away from CNN. What about those nuclear power stations, eh? I can't even.
