Love, Marriage, Dating, Children, Dating (Again)
(Harry Potter) Ron consults a self-help manual, in an effort to 'reignite the spark'.

Old fic reposted to AO3. Formatting was not fun. I put it off a year, no lie.

Girls Can Do Better
(Avengers) Janet takes Stephanie shopping and they talk about the meaning of the uniform.

Finally wrote a sequel to my lady!Cap story and it's... pretty much fluff.

And I've written a bit for Valtyr's Steve/Tony prompt and am thinking about Neotama's Castiel&Gabriel prompt. Mainly I had to quit because it's three in the morning, but I have more words. Guys, I am writing again. *_*

What's this? A meme that will allow me to talk about my stories? SOLD!

Ten Stories I'd Save (if I had to choose)

Love, Marriage, Dating, Children, Dating
Harry Potter | Epilogue compliant | Ron/Hermione, Harry/Ginny
Word Count - 12,800
Ron consults a self-help manual, in an effort to 'reignite the spark'.

Hands down, my favourite. I don't quite know how to rate my stories in terms of quality, but this is the one I like (love) the best. I loved coming up with the footnotes. I loved making fun of Ron's and Harry's continuing romantic ineptness. I loved selling the shit out the epilogue, which so many people hate. Read more... )
schmevil: (darth vader (noooooo!))
I'm reading a truly godawful Harry Potter story. Full on Snapologia, complete with Suffering Slytherin backstory and my god. MY GOD. I want to rewrite scenes so badly. Instead of stuttering excuses--insults and threats. Instead of snuffling--hexes, throat punches and humiliating displays of emotional childishness (on Snape's part).

I want to leap into the fic, grab this limp blanket of a character by the shoulders and shake him.


What's the point of writing Snape if you're going to downplay the depths of his assholery? idgi

Uh yeah. I'll be off to bed now.

Business Or Pleasure
Harry Potter, het, ~2500 words
Eddie Carmichael conducts business in the library. Cho does not approve.
[ profile] outlawpoet likes to call this Hogwarts Underground.

Wolf Like Me
Supernatural, femslash, ~4000
Meg takes Bela off the rack.
For [ profile] darkmagic_luvr by way of [ profile] spn_fs_exchange.

Business or Pleasure isn't the kind of story that has a built in audience, and I couldn't figure out where to advertise it. Does anyone know where I can post a No-Name-Ravenclaw/Cho Chang noirish short? I mean, really.
schmevil: (ron and hermione)
[personal profile] mad/[ profile] parsimonia bought my ficcing services via my [ profile] help_haiti auction, and asked for something Snape-y. Instead of a fic, she got a poem, which is my first in many years. Thanks go to [ profile] kijikun for all the hand holding, and to [ profile] outlawpoet for all the sound advice. Maddy, I hope you like it!

How do you feel about poetry? Because your Help Haiti thing wants to be a Lily/Snape poem.

Yes, you heard that right. A Lily/Snape poem. Fuck my life. :D

Meanwhile, I've got a third one started, and am plugging away at my SPN femslash exchange story.
schmevil: (jean)
My Help_Haiti ficlets are first on the list. They keep getting interrupted by work. Grr.

Y: The Last Man, Yorick/355 (If they got together fantasy).
Harry Potter, Snape (I might do Snape in Gotham for this).
Avengers, Steve/Tony (Tony takes Steve to a farm. There's a pony).
Avengers, Jan/Hank, Wanda/Simon (Possssibly a double date. Or an evil quiz show. Maybe both).

Then there are my holiday stories. One of which needs a scene and some editing. The other still needs to be written.

Avengers, Steve/Tony (Stephanie Rogers is pulled out of the ice and has to adjust to the brave new world. This is like... more complicated than it sounds because I have to remake the MU to adjust for a female Captain America in WW2. Think about it).

Kill Bill, Beatrix, BB/Nicki Green (Nicki goes looking for revenge. I think I'm going to do this in the style of the movie, with pics, footnotes, asides and musical interludes).

And my other stuff. There's lots of it. I'm going to give you the ones that are at the top of my priority list.

Avengers, Clint/Bobbi, Steve/Tony, Rhodey (Clint finds out that Steve and Tony are maybe-dating. First he freaks out, then he tries to enlist Rhodey to help things along). For Scotty.

Supernatural, Dean, Sam, Bobby and Castiel (During the final battle Castiel died. Now he's back as a human. Bobby adopts him, havoc ensues).

Supernatural, Castiel and Dean (Castiel is a fallen angel guarding the city of Dis. He pulls Dean out of hell, but not for altruistic reasons).

Supernatural, my SPN Femslash assignment, the details of which I can't reveal.

Harry Potter, Lily/James, baby Harry (The Potters face isolation, cabin fever, and a baby, in the house in Godric's Hollow).
schmevil: (drugs)
My writing resolution for 2010 is: moar ladies. More LGBTQ ladies. More ladies of colour. More young ladies, old ladies, fat ladies and skinny ladies.

On a semi-related note, here are some stories that I want, but probably won't write, since my to-write list is utterly ridiculous as is:

1) Natasha Stark is a trans woman. She created Iron Man before she started transitioning.

2) Welcome to the X-Men Sookie Stackhouse, I hope you survive the experience! "I am not wearing spandex. OR a leather catsuit." "Short shorts yay, spandex nay?"

3) Severus Snape moves to Gotham. Everybody seems to think he's a supervillain. Really, he just wants to raise mandrake roots, brew potions and write scathing letters to the editor, in peace.

4) Batgirl, Wonder Girl and Supergirl trade lives for a day. Hijinks ensue.

5) Colleen and Misty join the Lady Liberators.

6) SV!Lana Lang is Kawatche. She becomes a shape-shifting superheroine.

Title: To The River
Fandom: Harry Potter
Summary: As far back as he could remember, Snape had always wanted to be one of them. (Goodfellas inflected AU)
Characters: Severus Snape
Word Count: 3216
Warning: Implied violence.

Title: Grace Too
Fandom: Supernatural
Summary: Chastity doesn't kick Castiel out, and Dean doesn't drive away.
Characters: Chastity, Dean/Castiel
Word Count: 3080

[ profile] outlawpoet helped out with both of them. [ profile] kijikun is wholly responsible for the existence of the second one - I wasn't going to write that story!
schmevil: (high functioning geek)
As I said on Scans Daily:
Last night [ profile] kijikun informed me that David Petersen is at SDCC. I need to start going to cons. D: Petersen is the genius responsible for Mouse Guard. As some of you might remember, I'm freaking crazy about this series. Kij was kind enough to offer to send me a sketchbook and some pins. *twirl* For those of you out of the know, the official site actually has a good introduction to the series, including character profiles and original pages for sale.

Go here for two pages of mice tradesmen and one of interior art.

My much delayed book club post on Wonder Woman: the Hiketeia is up. It ran longer than I thought it would. Still, I hope we get some good responses, because I want to tear apart the Batman and Wonder Woman characterizations in the book, which I find fascinating. I'm really partial to Wondy stories that borrow heavily from Greek literature, which is why I like my Perez, Rucka and Simone Wondys so much. Ruck and Simone (more than Perez imho) are both interested in a Diana who lives in the modern world, but has strong, strong ties to the ancient world. Wondy needs that as a character. Anyway, check out book club for more on Hiketeia, which is a great Wondy story.

For those comics fans who aren't following the book club, our schedule for the fall is... interesting.

August: Justice League International Vol 1
September: JLA: Tower of Babel
October: Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall
November: Pride of Baghdad

Some books are super-conventional, others not so much. It'll be fun, no doubt. As I've never read JLI and only skimmed Tower of Babel, my posts on the first two will be ~fresh~ and hopefully unprejudiced. ;)

In other news, [ profile] mctabby is once again hosting the Cat's Birthday Drabblethon. Prompt submissions are now open. It's one drabble based on a randomly assigned prompt, over the course of the weekend. Not exactly onerous, and wholly hilarious.

Also, there was fic for me this week.

Intimate was written for me as part of this year's Weasley Fest.
Ron/Hermione, Harry/Ginny
This moment with Hermione felt more intimate than any moment before in his life.

A Sympathetic Ear (Last Assignment Remix) is a remix of my Someday They Will Be Scarce.
Xander/Anya, OC
With his long journey of Slayer rescuing almost done, Xander meets someone he can open up to.

Yes, it's true. I'm writing HP again, and now that the [profile] springtime_gen stuff has been revealed, I finally get to share my story with you. *twirls* It's weird, I've had [community profile] daily_snitch on my flist for years, and haven't paid it much attention, but recently I've been noticing challenges and exchanges again. I've signed up to do a story for [profile] weasleyfest, and I've got another Marauders story in the works. Lily pov, natch.

Anyway! I signed up as a pinch hitter, not as a participant proper, but I did still receive a gift. [profile] chibitoaster painted Sirius for me. *smooshes Padfoot*

Here Is No Place
Characters: Lily, Sirius, James

schmevil: (ron and hermione)
According to the Harry Potter Wiki: "Snape is noted for his incredible resemblance to Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, especially as Reznor appeared in the early 1990s."

You bring Snape closer to god. He wants to _ _ _ _ you like an _ _ _ _ _ _. The question is, will you let him?
schmevil: (ron and hermione)
Yeah. I'm writing a Marauders-era Lily & Sirius vignette. Anyone want to lend a hand? Either a line-beta or a thumbs up/down. It's been yeeeears since I wrote HP and I need a sounding board.
schmevil: (ron)
Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given, if you want.

Via [ profile] nevermore999. By accident, actually, but who am I to pass up a chance to talk about myself.

1. Marry/ F*ck/Kill and other polls

I started doing MFK because I'm crap at updating regularly, and as a weekly fixture, it keeps from getting distracted from posting for week-long periods. It's turned into one of those wicked indulgences you only find in fandom, or at really good parties: who we gonna kill today, and how? Also, you know, polls are fantastic way to ask incredibly silly questions.

[Poll #1355060]


[Poll #1355061]

2. Ron Weasley

If not for Severus Snape (Snape + [ profile] schmevil 4eva), Ron would be my favourite Harry Potter character. He's sweet, but a bit of a jerk; a true everyman. He's capable of fierce devotion and jealousy, has mood swings that could bowl over a giant, and is stubborn enough, and dumb enough, to cut off his nose to spite his face, nine times out of ten. He's the friend who offers to rough up people that make you cry. The guy who rarely lives up to his potential, unless you drag him kicking and screaming into achievement. But he's the guy who, when times are desperate, has your back and will lay down his life to save yours.

And please, the sweaters? The dress robes? Weasley Is Our King?

3. Newspaper Funnies

Two of my favourite webcomics are The Nietzsche Family Circus and Garfield Minus Garfield. Not just for the lolarious irony, but because I have a deep affection for comic strips. I read the funnies about three times a week, and make time on the weekend to read the comics insert, over a cup of coffee. Newspaper strips were my first exposure to comics. When I was a kid, my dad would lie on the floor, my brother and I on either side of him, and we'd read them together. He explained the jokes when we didn't get them, as many times as was necessary. Now, when we get a chance to spend a morning together, we'll read the comics separately, and then force our favourites on each other. (SherMan's Lagoon ftw, people).

4. modliness

I've been a mod of this list or that board almost as long as I've been in fandom. Much though I'm loath to admit it, this is probably a sign that I'm just a take-charge control freak at heart. Fear my modly power!

5. zombies

Zombies. My all time favourite movie monster. When I was a kid, there was a video store down the street that had one of the largest collections of genre movies that I've ever seen. They stocked everything from Texas Chainsaw Massacre Three, to 7 Golden Vampires. We'd watch upwards of six movies a week, all of them badly dubbed kung fu or horror. At ten years old I knew Nightmare On Elm Street backwards and forwards. Zombies though, are my horror true love. They at once fascinate and, quite literally, horrify me.

Zombies are complicated. No, really. They're an interesting philosophical problem. An undead, ravenous vessel for the expression of a seething mass of cultural anxieties - metaphor for consumerism? infection? sin? capitalism? human nature? Ask ten people what zombies 'are about' and you'll get ten different answers. While you're busy hashing out what zombies mean, your loved ones are disintegrating before your eyes, pulling themselves out of their graves, and deciding you're what's for dinner. Unlike a lot of old school zombie fans, I'm not a purist. Shambler or runner, magical or diseased - I'll take 'em all. Even kung fu zombies. For me, the appeal is in the idea of zombies, and their uniformly revolting appearance.

And hey, the side benefit of a childhood wasted on kung fu and horror movies is that nothing is too gory for my iron constitution.

I found some old fic that I forgot to archive at [ profile] martianhouse, and some things that I never got around to posting at all. Here now, for your reading pleasure:

These two are from my 'OMG guys, you know what's funny? Death Eaters!' phase.

Packing for the Crash (The Black Brothers Variation), a remix of Salt the Earth
Harry Potter, Gen, Regulus Black
If he lives through this, maybe Sirius will be happy to see him.

I went and reread Salt the Earth, after the reading the remix. I wrote it four years ago, so you have to forgive me for not remembering the exact details. *g* Holy zombie Jesus - I'm making it my project for the summer to edit my old fics for typos. Yikes.

So the remix is fab. My remixer shifter the pov to Regulus, and took a look at his own leave taking from Grimmauld Place. I like how it works as a remix - it's both a sequel, and another take on the original story. And it's just a nice read. S/he's got a great Regulus voice, and has their relationship down.

I've only just started reading the stories, but so far I've liked:

Goldfish Bowl (Glass Houses remix)
X-Men Movieverse, Bobby/Rogue
It's hard being normal in the goldfish bowl.

Sweet, with good Bobby characterization.

Weasleys Wizard Wheezes: The Ministry Disapproved Edition (The Liability Remix)
Harry Potter, Gen, Percy
From the Desk of Percival Ignatius Weasley, Concerning the twins' latest product line.

Ok, seriously - hilarious. Percy takes a look at his brothers' catalog.

Double Act (The Straight Man Stand-In Remix)
House, Adult, House/Foreman
Whatever it was, it wasn't with Wilson.

Understated, despite how these two can bring the drama. And hot.

I completely forget everything else I was going to write about. Huh.
