Guys. GUYS. I keep saying whole sentences that surely have never been said before. This is my life.

For instance - this morning? My husband wakes up and asks me what I'm doing out of bed at dark o'clock.

My answer: "Eating oatmeal and reading X-Men porn".

IDEK, Y'ALL. Whose life is really like this? It's almost too awesome. And I'm seriously developing an XMFC UST kink that I worry may devour my fanlife.

The Hypothetical AU Meme: Take any one of the fandoms you know I am familiar with, and give me a type of AU (space opera AU, pirate AU, superhero AU, Ancient Rome, etc). I will then explain what story from your chosen fandom I would write for your chosen type of AU. (NOTE: I am familiar with a hell of a lot more fandoms than I write in, so don't feel like you have to stick with BtVS/AtS).

Prompt, prompt, prompt, and I'll be back to spin hypotheticals!

Because I love a snarky meme, I've made a few "Texts from Sunnydale" - Enjoy!

Texts from Sunnydale )

Pairing: Charles Xavier/Erik Lehnsherr (X-MEN: FIRST CLASS)

Rating: PG

Summary: Oh, Charles, he hears as he drifts off. Don't you think I've thought of that?

A/N: Written for a prompt over at [ profile] comment_fic. Another of my random fandoms I really enjoy but seldom participate in.

He can almost feel the solid pressure of Erik's body next to his... )

Pairing: Spike, Angel

Rating: PG

Summary: He can’t imagine Angel listening to anyone long enough to really be any help. Might not have time left to do his hair. How a call gets connected.

Original Story: Dial N for Nancy-Boy by [ profile] deird1

A/N: Created for the Remix Madness 'Thon/Fest/Thing

Souled or not, he hasn’t had any kind words for Spike... )

Pairing: Spike, Drusilla

Rating: PG-13

Summary: He’s not her Boy Nightmare anymore, ready to paint the world in fire and blood to please his Princess. In a small motel room in Vegas, Spike begins to let go.

Original Story: Waiting in the Fog by [ profile] quinara

A/N: Many thanks to [ profile] anxiety_junkie for the hand-holding. There's nothing like a good friend to talk you down from a remix inspired panic attack - I mean, you still have the panic attack but at least they remind you to take deep breaths and use semi-colons.

Based on the Spike comics with spoilers for the whole series. Some dialogue taken from Issue # 4.

Her teeth sink playfully into the soft skin of his throat and he remembers that Drusilla doesn’t give a tinker’s damn about the now... )

This is painful. I have 50 words to go and this is like pulling teeth, y'all.

Random y'all aside: I saw a sign yesterday - lovely fresco done by a local Italian company - that said "Ciao Y'all". My husband would not let me buy it. He clearly sucks. That sign was AWESOME OMG.

This is Spike and Dru. Comics Spike and Dru. How is this hard for me? I actually think I know why - both this fic and the comics posit that at some point Spike ends up being totally over Dru and I just can't brain that.

In my head canon, Spike and Dru are always a part of each other - sometimes together, sometimes not, but indissolubly bound. I write Angel the same way: unable to be with them, but unable to stop loving them. It's very much in the model of the family experience of addicts and abusers - people you love do bad things and become people you cannot live with, but you don't stop loving them.

So this "I've let so many things go" bit messes me around like whoa. Which may explain why I am still 50 EFFING WORDS SHORT OF THE GOAL.

Random Link: I do not know HOW they managed it, but this Little Pony looks EXACTLY like Captain Jack Harkness. ADORABLE.

777 words. I'm stuck at 777 words. Absolutely blinky cursor mockery STUCK. 225 more words and I could hand this beeyotch in, BUT NO. I am so hard up for words I'm trolling TV Tropes in hope of getting some inspiration.

*cue Remix Angst*
sevendeadlyfun: (Default)
Well, I've cracked 500 words and it's looking a little grim. The problem is the scene I'm rewriting to (not the fic, but the actual section of comics canon) isn't subtext - it's flat text. The characters already say all the words I'd probably have them say if I were writing it as fic, which sort of takes some of the air out of my tires.

So I'm stuck writing a mood piece. Which I can do. But it's really really pared down. Like, I'm essentially expanding a hug to encompass 1000+ words while working in the basic plotline of the original fic.


In other news, I'm actually really curious about what story MY remixer is doing. I always feel slightly guilty come remix time - I write SO MUCH porn. I mean, even the plotty stories are porntastic. And kinked out. I love me some kink fic, sometimes only for the challenge of writing it. But that doesn't mean I don't sympathize with the remixer who's probably not all that interested in remixing victorian vampires and their shocking electro-stim funtiems (if you see what I did thar).

So, if you are remixing me this year and you stop by to read this, I SINCERELY APOLOGIZE FOR ALL THE PORN. And it's not often that I'm willing to say that.

Remix time! I love Remix time! Except when I don't - I mean I do but there's a certain lack of excitement right now. I've got my assignment and I've picked my story but it was sort of a by default as almost all the others are terribly 'shippy fluff and we've met me. I'm neither 'shippy nor fluffy but if I were, it would not be this 'ship nor this fluff. I'm not saying the stories are bad. Far from it.

But there's no way I can remix them without HOLY SWEET FANCY MOSES getting rid of at least one of the characters. And that is quite against the rules. Luckily I found a tiny itsy-bitsy little wee story off in a corner that seems very amenable to being remixed a la the comics.

Now, I just have write the bloody thing...

A/N: Spoilers for S4Ep1 of Primeval - did I mention my ridiculous love of this show? Because I love it ridiculously and I'm so glad it's back.

Characters: Darla, Spike, Tara

Rating: PG

Summary: "Anyways, Angelus figures he can snap enough necks at this Wolfram & Hart to get you fixed up proper." How Darla doesn't get rid of the chip. Alternate Reality.

Original Story: Full Course Meal by Alixtii

A/N: This story was written for Remix Duello 2010, a remix that allows authors to pick the story they want to see remixed.

The original story is a series of scenes, or "courses", set in an alternate reality where Darla, not Spike, is captured and chipped by The Initiative. This is a "missing scene" remix that could fall between the cracks of this alternate reality.

He's never had any respect. Not for her, not for the order, and it barely matters that he is blood of her blood... )

I don't read Star Trek fanfic but doesn't this bit of Star Trek novel summary...

Kirk soon becomes involved in the complex drama of Spock's family...

...sound exactly like what you'd expect? I imagine dozens of TOS fanfic K/S have that EXACT LINE as part of their summaries.

In case you doubt my sincerity, I give unto thee The Vulcan Academy Murders.

Characters: Spike, Angel

Rating: PG-13

Summary: And there it is. All laid out for him in pretty wrappings – the weight of his soul, all Angel-shaped and broody. Spoilers for the comics up to issue #36.

A/N: Posted for prompt #37-missing on my [ profile] 50ficlets table. Inspired more by the recent Buffy comic than anything - I like the idea of Spike's soul stuck in a co-dependent relationship.

Feel free to suggest pairings or ideas for the other 47 prompts!

He doesn’t need a reflection to tell him what he already knows... )

See, the thing is I've been doing this huge West Wing re-watch - mainly because I have a ton of West Wing and it's fun to watch and even funner to watch while working out because people look at you funny when they see it on your iPod while you're running - and I've been sucked in to Josh/Donna fic and a little Josh/Sam fic and I couldn't see the attraction until I realized that I just really enjoy neurotic sex.

I write Xander and Spike as borderline neurotic lovers, I write Angel as a closet neurotic, and the few times I've written Buffy, she's been stuck in a neurotic moment. Josh Lyman is the King of the Neurotics.

Y'all, I have taken my own personal tendency towards high-strung obsessive behavior AND FETISHIZED IT.

Also, life is kicking my ass and I miss writing.

Wow - I am almost MiA, except without being actually in any danger of anything other drama. BUT- I return with good newses.

1. I have been nominated for a hoo-boy! amount of awards :

At the [ profile] rwsawards, my fanart What It Means was nominated for the Still Pretty category.

Thank you so much to the wonderful person who nominated me. When I started fandom lo those many (3? 4? 900?) years ago, I had zero art skills - and my early pieces show it. Fandom gave me a safe place to learn and grow as an artist and I am deeply, deeply grateful to all the magnificent artists who gave their time and experience as critics and as fans. Thank you, really really.

And at [ profile] wicked_awards, my little profile color bar Spike is...naughty schoolboy love, based on some of my better manips was nominated for Best Banner.

My story What Dies Inside Us was nominated for Best Series and Best AU.

Desperate Times, my take on a soulless AtS S5 Spike teaching Lindsey a lesson, was nominated for Best Dark and Best PWP.

Also, Body Double was nominated for Best Het and Best Fluff and Hostile Fire was nominated for Best Slash. Both are stories written in response to [ profile] feedmykink prompts (OMLG, does anyone even remember when FmK did prompts? I miss that).

Also also, my Angel/Darla story, originally written for [ profile] girlpire, Between the Spirit and the Dust, has been nominated for Best Angst.

A big hug and squeeze to the person(s) who gave me so many nominations. I don't get much time to write these days, but these nominations are such an inspiration. Where would I be without all of my awesome fandom friends?

2. I'm sneaking this in here so [ profile] anxiety_junkie will notice and scold me. I signed up for another remix.

It's called Remix Duello and the premise is that your remixee picks the story for you to remix. You get no say - you have to remix the story they choose.

Yeah - recipe for angst? I think so. I chose Between the Spirit and the Dust, because frankly most of my stories are incredibly kinked out porn fests and that's not fair to inflict on a random stranger. Now, maybe the random stranger will like it, but without knowing ahead of time - I'm trying to be sensitive.

Although the temptation to pick the Spike/Drusilla/Connor fic and FINALLY get some OT3 love was...well, tempting.

So I am now at the whims of some unknown remixee. Plus side: I've had tremendous remix experiences before and I enjoy the challenge. Not Plus Side: I have control issues, there's a real possibility of failure and I'm starting grad school Monday.

Still love me, [ profile] anxiety_junkie?

Check in with me, flist! Share with me your doings, your lack of doings, your favorite school supplies.
