 I got Haywire for Yuletide. HAYWIRE. You know, the badass action movie with the badass action hero being a FEMALE who was a FORMER MARINE.

Yeah.

Fuck yeah.

It's AWESOME. GO FUCKING READ IT.

perpetual_motion: Booster and Beetle 4-evah! (don't laugh don't laugh don't laugh)
I ended up writing four stories for Yuletide, though one ended up being a complete fuck-up. I meant to grab a pinch-hit for someone wanting Tombstone, got someone else because I clicked the wrong e-mail, and didn't notice until the day after Yuletide went live. Lucky for me, everyone involved with Yuletide is ridiculously nice, so it got fixed, but I still feel like I'm ass. (Irish guilt? I do...yeah, probably.)

But, fuckery aside, I like all my stories! Let me show you them!

I might also have been completely not subtle is pumping her for info on what she wanted while thinking I was being subtle.

This was written for someone I didn't know, but I got two assignments because I accidentally signed up twice. I'm just saying that to differentiate between the two assignments I had and the pinch hits I did. Also, this was super fun to write because the recip likes 5 things fic and was okay with me sneaking a little Eddie/Monty into things. I could have easily written something without either of those options, but we know how much I love 5 things fic.s

So they built an office with a Zen garden. Albert appreciates sleek, modern furniture; Cooper likes Eastern antiques. So now their apartment is decked out in sleekly modern furniture imported from Tibet. Albert prefers quiet when he sleeps; Cooper drifts off listening to Tuvan throat singing. Albert has gotten used to earplugs. At each turn, one or both of them have seen their way through to a solution. The result is not so much a ‘normal life’ as it is a life that’s right for them, and insane for everyone else.

They are absolutely fantabulous. Totally dead-on, and I got DOUBLE JAIME! So, Yuletide Santas, if you see this, know how much I love you.

Yuletide recs are still to come, as I'm on a limited Internet connection, but I plan to try and crash my browser with tabs later on. Yay!

Also, if you're wondering, I wrote four Yuletide stories, and only one of them is a fandom I ever wrote before!

My first Yuletide story is out for beta!

My portfolio is all wrapped up!

I only have to finish a single (beloved) project by Monday!

My second Yuletide story is at appropriate word count and growing!

And now, to spend the night doing not a goddamn thing (and drinking).
perpetual_motion: guy and kyle huggle times (free hugz!)
BEST. YULETIDE. EVER.

I get the chance to write [REDACTED] and even have [REDACTED] and [REDACTED] get together, and my recipient has given me permission to write [REDACTED].

::bounces::

AWESOME.
perpetual_motion: big damn hero (not who you're thinking) (fuck yeah iron man)
Before I dig into the individual fandom requests, I'll walk you through what I like and what I don't because I just wrote the notes for the fandom requests, and they were pretty much "Just love them!" so I hope by giving you the kinks and whatnot first, the other information won't look quite as broad.

What I'm into storywise: Oh, god, so many things. I love relationship fics especially. Whether it's a romantic relationship or a buddy relationship, I am not picky. I just love seeing characters interact and be themselves. I also love angst and hurt/comfort and goofy fic and AUs. Boy, do I love AUs. I have a particular dainty little girlboner for High School AUs, but AUs in general are super awesome.

Sex Kinks: Um, lemme see: Fun BDSM, by which I mean BDSM where both parties are clearly equal even if one is submitting or being tied down or whatever (I have a Psych story that illustrates this). Gunplay, knifeplay, public sex, super dirty sex (lots of come and sweat and what have you), costume kink, spanking, biting, licking, rimming, handjobs, dirty talk, and probably others I simply can't remember right now.

Non-Sex Kinks: age difference as long as everyone's legal or very, very near (17 years old for example), scars (I have no idea why), some other stuff I can't remember right now

Please try not to write me: Uneven relationships (one person is obviously in power and the other person doesn't like it), violent relationships, anyone getting character-bashed, buddies no longer being buddies

And now, one last thing before I actually get to the fandoms: I mention that I'd love to have ensemble cast pieces if you're up for it, but if you're not--if you'd rather concentrate on one or two characters--that is totally okay. I do not take a non-ensemble piece to mean that you don't like certain characters or are trying to avoid certain characters.

Okay, I'l quit blathering here and get to blathering under the cut.

my demands (or, you know, whatever) )

In short, you're awesome, and you're going to write something I will love. I'm sure of it. Also, if any of my flist read this and would be willing to answer questions for my yuletide Santa, drop a comment, eh?
perpetual_motion: hang yourself please (Default)
I will offer the six fandoms I'm already willing to write (everyone marked "any" for characters), and go from there. It's fun to guess what's coming my way for Yuletide, but I am lazy this year.

Besides, if I want to write weirdness, I'll just get you guys to prompt me.

Damn. It.

Nov. 16th, 2011 07:39 pm
perpetual_motion: hang yourself please (Default)
So, I'm signing up for Yuletide, and I added a HUGE list of fandoms I'd be willing to write any characters in. Guess what just got lost.

Fuck it. I'll try again tomorrow. I don't remember my list and don't care to recreate it at the moment. I will comb through again after homework tomorrow evening.

Also, is sign-up super short this year or am I remembering wrong? It feels like the whole thing is sorta rushed, but it may just be fault memory on my part.

Calvin and Hobbes

The Roommate of +10 Confusion
Pairing: None
Summary: There must be some scientifically sound way for Jason Fox to be able to quantify his new college roommate, but he hasn't found one yet that fits. Especially when he factors in the stuffed tiger.

My notes: Jason Fox from Foxtrot meets Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes, and it is AWESOME. Jason is absolutely confused about Calvin and his weirdness, and Calvin is--as always--completely unaware. I can really see both of them ending up like this in college, and I love it.

This kid I once knew
Pairing: None
Summary: Daniel sends their whole improv group an e-mail saying "check this out its fun1!1" and a link to a web comic called The Adventures of Spaceman Spiff.

My notes: I love Susie in this--far enough away from Calvin's every day influences that she remembers him a little fondly, and that she doesn't explain him because people don't quite get it.


Well, hrm. That was short. I found a longfic in Mighty Ducks (Filed under 'D' thanks to the movie title shortenings), so that'll go on the longfic list. It's not that stuff in the Ds and Es doesn't look interesting, but I'm trying to be a little bit picky with my options. Just for funsies.

[Note to self: You're a dork.]
perpetual_motion: awww wookit Kyle's face! (kyle's a real boy!)
As in years before, as I read, I will rec. I didn't participate in Yuletide this year, but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy the spoils! This entry is only for stories in fandoms starting with numbers and going through the letter B, because I know I rec a LOT.

I'm only reccing shorter stuff right now, as I want to read as much as possible. Any longfic I fall over will be put aside for after the big lists are made.

30 Rock
Shooting Stars, Satellites, and Other Flaming Wreckage That Falls Out of the Sky
Pairing: Liz/Pete
Summary: Pete raised his hand up, palm out, and Liz held hers up too. They air high-fived across her office and for the first time in twenty-two hours, things were normal.

My notes: SO THEM. Awkward and a little weird and a nice, non-touchy ending.


A-Team (Original Flavor)

Let it Snow
Pairing: None (Face and Murdock being buddies)
Summary: Murdock and Face end up snowed in for Christmas.

My notes: Another case of SO THEM. Murdock is goofy and Face is secretly a very sweet guy, and there's a snowball fight and Billy the Invisible Dog!

Archer (the FX series)
Quoting Herman Melville Never Did Anyone a Bit of Good
Pairing: Lana/Cyril on the side, overall an ensemble piece.
Summary: Archer is a hostage, Cyril is crying, Malory is yelling, and Cheryl thinks she's black. All in a day's work at ISIS.

My notes: Everyone is so spot-on, and the whole thing is hilarious, and everyone gets at least one funny line.


Archie (Comics)
Friends Don't Let Friends Suffer Alone
Pairing: Betty/Veronica
Summary: The problem with friends is that they plot against you.

My notes: Every year I am thrilled to find a delicious piece of angst in the Archie world, and this year is no exception. Oh, tortured teenage love, how delicious you are.


Baby-Sitters Club
Elizabeth's Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Dates
Pairing: Elizabeth (Kristy's mother)/various bad dates
Summary: Kristy's mom hasn't had the greatest luck when it comes to dates.

My notes: This is funny and sweet and a little bit painful, but in a good way. The ending is lovely, and there's even a couple of cameos of people you already know from the books, including a much younger (but still very in charge) Kristy.


Back to the Future
Alternates
Pairing: None
Summary: Marty's life isn't at all like how he left it.

My notes: Very nice balance of confusion and some sadness from Marty as he considers the family he had before and the family he has now. Very sweet and warm.


Batman Beyond
Birth of a Lioness
Pairing: None
Summary: Six months after Terry started working for Mr. Wayne the second time, Commissioner Gordon brought Matt home from school.

My notes: It's one of those great stories where you see that Terry's mom has suspected things are weird with his job for Mr. Wayne, but now she knows, and it makes all the difference. A lovely discovery piece.


Beauty and the Beast (1991)
Shades of Bittersweet
Pairing: Belle/Gaston
Summary: What if Belle married Gaston? A series of vignettes set ten years after Gaston's ultimatum.

My notes: My heart is in a hundred tiny pieces, and I would read this again and again and again. Everyone is perfectly encapsulated in their moment, and I feel for Gaston. I really do.


Bioshock
they shake the mountains when they dance
Pairing: None
Summary: Around her, the splicers scream.

My notes: Were I not determined to say something useful, I'd just write THIS and carry on. The atmosphere is there, as is the pain and the sadness and that odd sweetness between a Little Sister and a Big Daddy. THIS.
perpetual_motion: hang yourself please (\o/)
As I mentioned before, I had Redefining Normal written for me. It's "Young Avengers" and Billy/Teddy-centric, and it is EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED OMG. It's wonderful, and my writer (Tangerine) is super-double awesome for being awesome and writing me EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED.

And now, me: I wrote What If...Steve Jones was the Father of Jessica Jones's Baby?. It's based in the "Alias" comic (no connection to the show) and it's Steve Rogers (Captain America)/Jessica Jones. In the canonical run of "Alias," Jessica gets pregnant with Luke Cage's kid, and they get married and are still in love and have a super-cute baby, so it was really fun to set it up for Steve. My awesome beta was [livejournal.com profile] muccamukk, and she saved me from continuity slip-ups and weird pacing. She was awesome, and the story would have been worse off without her help.

The Fools on the Hill--(Gene/Sam)--Put together, they shouldn't work. But they do.

Mad Men
The Name on the Door--For a week, Joan has a little helper in the new office. "You're going to do far more than answer phones."

It's Magnificent--A day in the life of a doctor's wife.

A Little Brown-Haired Bride--Peggy isn't entirely sure what she wants, but she knows when she doesn't have it.

Please Please Me--Two months after the ending of Season 3, Peggy and Sal run into each other at a party.

MASH
Good Advice is Meant to be Shared--(Hawkeye/Sidney)--Sidney comes to the 4077 for some dinner and a little help taking his own advice.

Nancy Drew (Books)
A Yellowed Paper Heart--Ned Nickerson hates being in love with Nancy Drew.


We're gonna call it a day there, folks. I've still got the rest of the Ns to get through (for a start), but I think I've given you enough to review for right now.
perpetual_motion: hang yourself please (squee!)
And now, onto the Hs!

Hard Core Logo
All That Never Changes--(Billy/Joe)--When Billy saw Joe's dead body laid out on the concrete, he laughed.

Take me Out of This Frozen Season--(Billy/Joe)--It's a year later, and the Hard Core Logo documentary is about to be released. Billy doesn't want to watch it, but isn't really given another choice. (Spoilers for movie.)

Hardy Boys
Our Red Sea--Your father's gone. Don't lose your brother too.

Harriet the Spy (Book)
Claimed Spaces--A semi-impromptu spy route for Harriet, set approximately ten years from the end of the original novel.

Horatio Hornblower (TV)
Red and Blue Roses--An explanation for why the wardroom redecorated Hornblower's cabin in "Hornblower and the Hotspur".

Hot Fuzz
Crossed Wires--(Danny/Nicholas)--In which property damage is very wrong, and our heroes worry unnecessarily.

After the Explosions, the Days--(Danny/Nicholas)--"There was sort-of-knowing and there was knowing-knowing, and Nicholas had stopped making sense even in his own head." Nicholas and Danny moving forward.

DIY for Beginners--(Danny/Nicholas)--Danny is worried that the temptations of the big city will lure Nicholas back to London, but what can Sandford offer that will tempt him to stay?

Home for the Holidays--(Danny/Nicholas)--There's no place like home for the holidays, but what if you're not quite sure where home is?

There's some good stuff in the Is, but nothing I feel like linking over. I'm mostly aiming for stuff that either gut punches me or makes me all gooey, so stuff that's just really good and interesting isn't quite making the list. But if you think I might have missed something, tell me so!
perpetual_motion: hang yourself please (picturing you naked)
In case you're curious, I do plan to work my way through the alphabet. To give you an idea of the size of this thing, I signed up to write for 60 or 70 fandoms this year. I can't recall, exactly, but it was a LOT. So I read a lot. And it's awesome.

Again, I'm not reading every last thing in the fandoms I rec, and if you think I missed something good, tell me!

Dead Poets Society
Know How to Speak--(Todd/Neil)--Silence is just as important.

In Motion--(Todd/Neil)--Neil Perry is not, in fact, a very talented poet. It is rather intimidating to find out that his roommate is.

Of Eyes that Crave the Light--Todd's forty years old, and the past comes back to him on a cold day in Manhattan.

Dirty Dancing
A Real Grown-Up Name--(Baby/Johnny)--Frances Houseman always wanted to change the world.

Doctor Who RPF
So Fearless, You're Filthy, Except When You Fail--(David Tennant/John Simm)--John Simm hates actors; David Tennant is a mercurial freak. Everyone else has commentary.

Fame
Embody the Earth--(Montgomery/Ralph)--Montgomery MacNeil gets his happy ending.

Fried Green Tomatoes
And Your People Shall Be My People--(Idgie/Ruth)--'My son will grow up with a name he can be proud to bear,' Ruth said. 'He has no right to the name Jamison – as you have pointed out,' she continued, 'and while there remains breath in my body he will not be subjected to the indignity of the name of Bennett.'

Glee
Angel with a Pint Glass--(Kurt/Finn)--Finn grins and waves and he looks so genuinely pleased to see him, that Kurt feels a little ridiculous for not seeking him out weeks ago.

Well, D-G; that's pretty good work. Yay, me! What are you reading, flist? Even if it's not Yuletide, I'm very curious.
perpetual_motion: hang yourself please (awesome!)
Like before, I'm not reading every last piece in every fandom. Either I'm being lazy and think it's too long, or I'm not interested in what some people wrote. And, again, if you think I should be reading a certain story, drop me a note. I like recs as much as the next person!

We're gonna cover B-C today, I think.

Baby-Sitters Club
Stacey's Seriously Bad Decision--(Stacy McGill/Charlotte Johanssen)--Stacey's pretty sure that falling for someone you used to babysit is totally not OK.

Beauty and the Beast (Disney)
Bittersweet--(Belle/Beast)--Some stories do not always have happy endings...

Rose Without Thorns--(Bella/Adam (Beast))--Belle is not as happy as she thinks she should be. Then again, maybe she is.

Bend it Like Beckham
Five Days, Five Months--(Jess/Jules)--Coming to the US was the last thing Jess thought would put a rift in her relationship with Jules, but the moment she arrives everything starts to change.

Breakfast at Tiffany's

MR. Yunioshi's Photographs--The life and times of Mr. Yunioshi, and why he lets Holly Golightly stay in her apartment rent-free. (Otherwise: can we make Mr. Yunioshi more of a character and less of an offensive caricature?)

Such a Lot--He was serious, a serious man. Always frowning. And if that accentuated the eyes, well, it's not that he did it on purpose.

Breakfast Club
Most Likely To---(Brian/Bender)--People liked stories to have a trajectory. Upward or downward, they liked a journey. So if there had been gossip after the reunion, Brian's life might have looked something like this.

Cable & Deadpool
The Cable & Deadpool Yuletide Special--...summary? Is that like a recap page? Huh. Okay. I'm Deadpool, the Merc with a Mouth. You may remember me from such comics as "Deadpool," "Deadpool," and "Cable & Deadpool," and from my brief appearance in Wolverine's first solo movie, which for now makes me Marvel's latest license to print money -- thank you, Ryan Reynolds. Anyway, now I'm in a Yuletide story, so join me and my buddy Nate Summers, aka Cable, for wacky hijinks and reality-hopping adventure. Say hi to the fangirls, Nate.

"Wade? Who are you talking to?"

Calvin and Hobbes
Everyday is a Reminder--(Calvin/Susie)--There's a certain fear that some children share as they grow up, that whatever they do will never be as good as what's come before. Among all the other things he will ever be, Calvin has never been one of those kids.

The Lengthy Dimly Lit Coffee Break of the Psyche--Calvin looks for a job. Hobbes and Susie look after Calvin.

Casino Royale (2006)
Gifts--(Bond/M)--Usually Bond and M save the world. But sometimes, just sometimes, they go shopping.

If Headaches Persist, Shoot Your Agent--(Bond/M)--Bond's a headache even at the best of times, but he's M's headache.


I may get around to the Ds tonight. I've currenly got nine tabs open under the Ds. I need to rewatch "Dead Poets Society."
perpetual_motion: hang yourself please (make with the sex eyes)
As I read stuff, I'm gonna rec stuff. I'm being mildly lazy and sticking to shorter stuff, so if you read something you think I would have liked, it may just be that it was longer than I wanted to read at the moment. Drop me a note to check it out!

There are all the fandoms that start with numbers and the letter A. These are not all the Yuletide fandoms that fall under that umbrella; just the ones I read.

30 Rock
Better Than Coffee-- The Mexican tienda strikes again, this time with less bull semen.

(Don't) Picture You and Me--(Jack/Liz)--"What is it this time, Lemon?"

He speaks without so much as a backwards glance at the doorway, and seriously, how the hell does he do that? She should get him to teach her one day, because she never made so much as a sound, and he knew immediately.

The Wrath of Jon--In which there is a pie crisis, Conan's studio is off-limits, Jack is absent, and Jonathan knows things that other people don't.

A Knight's Tale
Not Fitting--When a man changes his stars, do the stars change a man?

Across the Universe

Let it Out and Let it In--(Jude/Max)--Jude lets it out, lets it in.

Been Wandering Around (Still Comes Back to You)--(Jude/Max)--If Jude's honest, he's still not sure why he ran. No one saw them. No one was chasing, but something about Max's energy had him following. From day one.

Read Up to the Roots--(Lucy/Prudence)--A day on the compound with Lucy and Prudence.

It's Beautiful and So are You--(Lucy/Prudence, Max/Jude)--The clouds will be a daisy chain, so let me see you smile again.

Alias (Comic)

Pseudological Fantastica--Jessica's not good at this, the talking and sharing and a being a "normal" human being -- y'know? -- but she knows she's going to get better at it, has to, for this kid, for Luke, for herself.

American Idol RPF
And When it Was Good--(Ryan/Simon)--There are shows when it's good, when they're on.

Where We're Going and How to Get Back--(Ryan/Simon)--There are things less like relationships.

The letter B and more tomorrow.
perpetual_motion: hang yourself please (awesome!)
My giftie is Redifining Normal. It's Young Avengers Billy/Teddy, and it's AMAZING. They're such teenagers and so in love and kinda dorky and happy and comfortable, and I freaking love it. It's exactly what I wanted, and I want to read it again and again and again.

Gimmie a few on recs; it took forever to get the archive to cooperate (gee, you think people were on it?), so I've just started reading. I'm in 30 Rock right now, and I plan to be delightfully lazy and read until I put myself to sleep from exhaustion. Yay!
perpetual_motion: hang yourself please (damned sentient typewriter)
Seriously, you bitch, let's go.

Also, my left shift key is slightly sticky (thanks, Coke, you dick). Compressed air to fix, maybe? I don't know. I've managed not to do this before.

What's up with you, flist?
