I used to write a lot. Then they have me the ProjectThatWouldn'tEnd at work, despite not having ever been a PM before, never mind one of this scale. I think it broke me temporarily because I haven't actually written anything in over a year.

Then [personal profile] elfin lamented the lack of Vic/Cady fic under the Longmire tag at AO3, and this happened. Words, how I missed you. S5 spoilers.

2014 fic list

[personal profile] mrspollifax made me promise to do this, so...
I wrote much more than I thought this year, but posted little, so the list is short and only moderately sweet.

The Song of Sarah (The Long Road Home Remix) 5/2014 StarTrek: Deep Space 9; Sarah Cisco; Gen; ~1900 words; It’s not until much later that Sarah learns those missing years were not the waste she'd always thought. Remix 11 entry (links to original story on AO3 page)

Find out I'm wrong (when I thought I was right) 2/2014 Longmire bookverse; Walt/Vic; explicit; ~2500 words; porn battle entry: He's happy to ride shotgun for her.

First Press 2/2014 Almost Human; Dorian/John Kennex; mature; ~890 words; porn battle entry: Dorian has a problem. John has instructions.

A Fire Infolding 1/2014 Longmire bookverse; Walt/Vic; PG; ~1300 words; He found himself glad she hadn't wanted to be alone either.

I'm away from the office on training this week. Pros: I'm away from the office all week. Cons: the course isn't very good or as in depth as advertised. Sad when the other students are asking you questions because they are unsatisfied by the instructor's answers.

I thought long and hard for something witty or entertaining to post this week, but that ain't happening.
Here, have a picture of a duck photobombing my goose picture instead:

Also, it is officially fall.

Signal boost:[community profile] fringe_exchange sign ups are open. I'm not in a place where I can make that kind of creative commitment this year, but don't let that stop you from signing up. (It really is a low pressure exchange. And fun.)

I signed up for Remix 11 and wrote a thing:

Title: The Song of Sarah (The Long Road Home Remix)
Fandom/Rating: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Gen
Characters: Sarah Sisko, Jake Sisko, Joseph Sisko
Summary: It’s not until much later that Sarah learns those missing years were not the waste she'd always thought.
Notes: Original story: In Due Season by [personal profile] beatrice_otter
AU because I was reminded that in canon, Sarah Sisko dies not long after leaving. She deserved a better fate.

I have written words! Apparently the secret is to pick the tiniest, quietest fandom? Linking here for completeness:

A Fire Infolding (1294 words)
Fandom: Walt Longmire Mysteries - Craig Johnson, Longmire (TV)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences

Additional Tags: book canon, first person POV, Missing Scene
Summary: He found himself glad she hadn't wanted to be alone either.


Following up on the tiniest fandoms theme, a few PB prompts. Not sure if they'll pique anybody's interest, but I wouldn't even mind fills that qualified under the 'gen' or 'porn!fail' tags either, should anybody be looking for inspiration.

Yeah, so no questionnaire this year - the list is far too short. Fringe gave me an ending that felt complete, and while I enjoyed The Americans, I felt in no way fannish about it. The rest of the year was spent reading books and trawling the old archives of closed-canon fandoms. RL didn't leave much in the tank this year, and the brain, she needed a rest.

So, without further ado, 2013's Fic Review - A Collection of Snippets, smut, and obscurity...

Worship - Fringe (R/Explicit), Peter's never considered himself a religious man. (Olivia/Peter)
Living Like There's Nothing Left to Lose - Fringe (Mature), Post episode 5.08, Olivia and Peter take a moment to breathe
All In - BSG (PG), Kara says, "Marry me, Lee" and the crowd around the table goes quiet. A rescued snippet that lost its ending somewhere...
Two Years Later (and Olivia's back in Mid-World) - Fringe (G), Timestamp prompt fill.
Down Passages We Did Not Take - Longmire (novel canon), Post A Serpent's Tooth, Walt's always been an expert when it comes to shouldering the blame.

Memorable, no? Presenting, The 21 First Lines meme:

My 21 favorite: )

I always struggle with the first line - not only does it need to set the hook for the reader, but it also sets the tone for me for all the rest that come after it. Sometimes I have to stop myself from spewing the entire story out into that one first sentence. If I were writing anything right now (which I'm not because of reasons that are trivial), it would be fun to have a ficathon where your prompt was your first line.

Sooooo..... a long while back I was taking timestamp prompts and [personal profile] rainer76 asked for "Two years later, Olivia's back in Mid-World"

I haven't forgotten this one; quite the opposite. I just couldn't get a handle on what I wanted to do with it for a long time. There is apparently more to this story than the 100 words called for in the meme, but in the spirit of filling the final request, here's a snippet for the larger work:
Two years later... )

ziparumpazoo: (Literature)
Found in a document with some cryptic alphanumeric file name:

All In (BSG, Kara/Lee season 1-ish?) )

I'm sure there must have been more to it, but damned if I can remember. *frowns*

I'm supposed to be working on my yearly employee eval. This is more fun.

Number of finished pieces: 14
Word Count: 40418

Last Turnoff Before Ascension (BSG - 955 words) A Canadian Shack fic about resurrection, and possibly the danger in drinking found liquor
das Über-Ich (Fringe - 1026 words) What's running through Walter's mind during a key moment in Brave New World.
Four Days and Change (Fringe - 1033 words) Not originally intended as a prequel to das Über-Ich, but it worked out that way, from Olivia's point of view.
Mnemonic Breadcrumbs (Fringe - 578 words) Walter might talk about things like scent triggering memory association, but Olivia's got a few tricks of her own.
Giving All My Secrets Away (Fringe - 2407 words) Kinkmeme fill for the prompt "Peter wants to know what Olivia dreams about"
Drown Out the Crowd (Fringe - 3774 words) 'nother kinkmeme fill, this time about mind reading, whisky, and white dress shirts.
Looking Glass (Fringe - 598 words) A little tag to [personal profile] monanotlisa's Flooded All the Streams, which she then went and podficced! (eeee! \o/) - Olivia remembers a certain piece of tech that will let them see the Other Side again.
A Garden Planted (BSG - 14293 words) An AU of season 4.5, where Kara contemplates her mortality, and Lee worries about doing the right thing. Doesn't sound that much different than canon.
Home, Wherever You Find Yourself (SG-1 - 1728 words) Timestamp to that series about Sam and Jack being stranded off-world
A Better Plan (SG-1 - 342 words) Timestamp to a very old S/J piece
Stay With the One Who Wants You (Fringe - 542 words) Timestamp to Dance with the one who Brung You

The hours grow shorter as the days go by (Fringe - 928 words) Timestamp to Bleeding Daylight
Plus, a certain to-be revealed (if you haven't already figured it out first) story written for this year's [community profile] fringe_exchange (Fringe - 11565 words)

One more timestamp fill. I know I've fallen behind on these, but to be honest, these last two requests have been the hardest because I was going back to the very first story I wrote in this fandom - not that that's the bad part, it's just scratching around made me realize that the there was so much more potential in that 'verse, even though the meme says I only needed to dig up about 100 words. Anyhow, this one's for [personal profile] wikiaddicted723 who wanted – Bleeding Daylight – anytime afterwards.

Still working on the other one, Rainer. Very slowly. :)

Vacations are apparently for cleaning out hard drives... I accidentally deleted this and then found it in the recycle bin a the last moment. Oops.
