Did anyone notice Photobucket bork out last night? It said my journal header was linked incorrectly, but when I went on their site, I couldn't get it to show up there. I ended up switching it to my LJ gallery and it shows up for me now. Weird! Anyone know something I don't know? Is Photobucket not cool anymore? :) I had totally forgotten it existed because I haven't changed my layout in forever.

This post is brought to you live from, like, two weeks ago! I had a lot of fun doing Chocolate Box, and I got two things:
A lovely piece with Bill and Saul right after the attacks: Silence
Bittersweet Harry/George, post-DH: Alone Together

And this is what I wrote. That's where my energy had gone, I suppose. Thankfully, I'm gaining it back.
A Sense of Warmth (Stannis/Davos, future!porn)
The True Lord of Storm's End (AU with Stannis getting Storm's End + little Renly)
Simple Gifts (Robert/Ned - this was a surprise! But the prompt was really cute.)
Some Kind of Strength (Narcissa/Lucius, post-DH)
Late-Night Revisions (H/R/Hr fluff)

I'm still here! My energy is going to writing, when I've got it. I have missed you guys, though! Trying to be around more. :)

I came to Star Wars late; the first one I saw was Episode III, and then I went back and watched them all in chronological order. I feel like I ought to mention this upfront because that means (a) I don't have any particular nostalgic attachment to the OT and (b) I don't have any particular reason to hate the prequels (although I do prefer the OT story and characters). Not into the EU or anything like that.

But here are my thoughts on The Force Awakens )
plaid_slytherin: Haruhi on a desk (Haruhi desk)
Authors have been revealed, so now I can show off what I wrote!

The Haunting of Haruhi Suzumiya
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
Haruhi/Kyon, SOS Brigade
The SOS Brigade investigates a haunted house, with predictable results.

The Right Path
Having just fled King's Landing before Robert's death, Renly decides what to do next.

9: Pairings: For each of the fandoms from day two, what are your three favorite pairings to write?

Oh, this is a ruddy dull day!

BSG: Bill/Saul, Bill/Saul/Laura, Kara/Lee (or Laura/Lee. I can't pick.)
HP: Horace/Albus, Remus/Sirius, Harry/Ginny
ASOIAF: Stannis/Davos, Renly/Loras
DW: Ten/Jack, Ten/Jack/Rose, Nine/Jack
MCU: Steve/Bucky

I'm skipping the one-fic fandoms because that would be dumb, especially since I haven't even written three ships in two of these fandoms. I wish this question was more interesting.


I finally posted my second [ profile] hc_bingo fic: Relief, Stannis/Davos. Square was headaches and migraines. I can't believe I'm only on square two. How many months have I had this card??

Another from me today.

THIS THING. See, I didn't forget! Except I did, but I remembered again, so it doesn't count.

8: Do you write OCs? And if so, what do you do to make certain they're not Mary Sues, and if not, explain your thoughts on OCs.

I write OCs when I need to, and I'm not afraid to include them in a story if they are necessary. The two OC-heaviest things I've written, I think, are Smoke and Mirrors (set on Columbia, so everyone but Bill/Saul are OC) and Jane Potter which is if Jane counts as an OC. I don't do anything to make them not Mary Sues. I remember when there were all those "Mary Sue tests" and you were okay if you had a sufficient quota of flaws or not-cool things. Whatever. I don't care about that kind of stuff anymore. "Mary Sue" is just code for immature writing and it's a stage that a whole lot of writers go through. I try to make my OCs make sense within the canon universe, which is exactly what I do with everything else I write. Boom. There.

I am sure I've done this before, but it's always fun. Stolen from [ profile] navaan.

First, I put in By Rights.

I write like
William Shakespeare

I Write Like. Analyze your writing!

Well, hey! We're off to a tremendous start.

But then I tried an HP fic and got... JK Rowling. So maybe it was the old-timey language. But I prefer to think that the magnificence of Stannis' complaints = Shakespeare!

FWIW, other things yielded Oscar Wilde and Daniel Defoe (twice).


Trick or Treat fics went up! I got two lovely things: Hold Strong, which is Stannis during the siege of Storm's End, and The Calling, which is young Horace finding his calling. Both totally hit the right place for my guys. So happy. ♥

Next week, I'll share what I wrote! Although it's probably pretty obvious.

7: Have you ever had a fic change your opinion of a character?

I really like writing as a way to get more comfortable with characters I have trouble with. Staying Solid really helped me get a handle on Kara and since then I've written several Kara or K/L things. I also really enjoyed writing Ellen in The Way Home and Baltar in this ficlet. They didn't become my favorites but I can definitely enjoy writing them.

6: When you write, do you prefer writing male or female characters?

The characters who have grabbed me and not let go the most have been male, but I don't really think of it in those terms. It is probably more likely that I am drawn to a set of personality traits which most often appear in fiction on men.

Which I suppose opens up a new suitcase of meta that I am not going to write about at 12:30 AM. Stay tuned.

5: If you have ever had a character try to push their way into a fic, whether your "muse" or not, what did you do about it?

So, yesterday (it was yesterday, right?), I talked about Saul worming his way into things he wasn't supposed to be part of. But he fit, so I let him. I don't think I would do that if they didn't fit and... you know what? I'm in control here. I often talk about the characters "wanting" to do things, but really, it's me. I often describe writing fanfic as playing with dolls, because that is what I would do as a kid, I would always make up elaborate doll-stories. Now I can sit still long enough to write plus I don't have a doll castle or spaceship. But in all respects, I am still playing with my dolls, and I definitely have my favorites that I want to include in more things.
