My fic lives at my Archive of Our Own page. Some of its been posted here, too. But some hasn't, so AO3 is the best place to find most of it.

The majority of it is for Tamora Pierce (Tortall-verse) and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The rest (right now) is Tamora Pierce (Emelan-verse), Angel, Firefly, Across the Universe, and Catherine Christian's retelling of Arthurian legend.

Sometimes I have Tamora Pierce fic (both universes) at the Goldenlake message board before I bother to archive it.

I'm sure I'm on record somewhere, saying I'm not an OTP sort of girl. There's so many possibilities, you see. )

I have a lot to say about Torchwood: Children of Earth, and not time to say it all now.

(about 300 words under the cut) )
peroxidepirate: (new kind of tension)
(This is a little more fun than my last entry. I wrote most of it yesterday morning, ready for posting today.)

Here's the story of fandom and me, prompted by a wish to clarify why I got so very squeeful over James Marsters' appearance on Torchwood.

Seriously? I love the internet. )

Dear author,

Thanks for signing up to write for me! I'm a little late posting this -- apologies. If you're more organized than I am and have already started or planned your fic, please, carry on. I am beyond squee-ful at the prospect of a whole ficathon devoted to femslash, and I will be absolutely delighted to receive a fic for any of these requests.

But if you were waiting for a little more information, well. I like plot and fluff and angst-with-a-happy-ending and most AUs. You'll notice that most of the things I requested are sci fi or fantasy of some kind; I'm not much interested in "real world" or "all human" AUs, because I'm a genre nerd at heart, you see. Oh, I'm also quite ok with crossovers, as long as I'm familiar with both fandoms -- so should you feel compelled to cross any of my requests over with each other, or with anything else I've offered to write, please go ahead.

Ok, so I was going to share a little more info about my requests, but... honestly, I'm bored of all my ideas, and I know I'll be happy with whatever you choose to write. So have fun! And again, thank you.

Nicki

Torchwood?

Questions for anyone who's seen more than the first four episodes of Torchwood:
  • Does it get better?
  • When?
  • If I skip ahead to that point, will I know what's going on?
(By the way, I have no problem with spoilers, so comment away, if you'd like.)

I just can't get into it. )

.... 'Cause I haven't done one in a while, and I have me some snazzy new icons. I'm gonna cheat & use more than one for some questions.

(Gakked from [livejournal.com profile] bradcpu  while I was browsing for Buffy fic.)

This question has been kicking around in my brain for a while: what makes certain things more fandom- and fanfic-ready than others? Why do we decide to fic the things we fic?

I can only answer for myself, of course. I'm interested in hearing whether the conclusions I reach apply to others, as well.

For me, a fic-friendly canon has to be or include three things: the characters have to be compelling, the universe has to be compelling, and the story has to be – or at least feel – incomplete.

I've reached the stage where I'm desperately impatient to reply to the comments left on my Yuletide fics. YULETIDE HAS EATEN MY BRAIN. I've been reading like crazy, and finally remembered to start bookmarking... so like everybody else, I'll have a recs post coming out pretty soon (starting with the excellent gift!fic I received).

In the meantime, I'm kind of in love with the fandom I wrote for (which is the other reason I'm so impatient for the Big Reveal -- I want to talk about it!). I know it's a bad idea to expect a one-night stand to turn into True Love, but I just can't help it!!

Actually, I'm not sure that's the right analogy.

Given the amount of attention and planning that goes into writing for Yuletide... it's more like the fandom I wrote for is my prom date, if my steady, Firefly,(1) goes to another school & is so popular she already had plans for prom night. I asked, what, a dozen other people if they'd be my date,(2) and one of them said yes. We all spent weeks getting ready for the Big Night. And, er, then I ended up dancing with someone else for the whole night (by which I mean writing something I didn't initially offer)... and that's the fandom I'm in love with now. I totally put out, but it was more than just a one night stand.

(1) Given the obvious history between us, I can see how you'd think Buffy was my main squeeze, but I assure you, we're just good friends now. Really. Firefly understands.

(2) I didn't ask my ex, the Tortall universe, because I figured she already had a date. I was right -- recs coming soon.

Does this mean I'm leaving Firefly for the new fandom? Well, um... truth is, it wasn't that serious to begin with -- it's not like we were exclusive or anything. See the icon? I have a whole lot of ideas for a lot of fandoms kicking around inside my head, some Yuletide-inspired and some not. It should be fun -- which is really what this is all about.

Today was my day off, and I spent an insanely large part of it copying fics over to AO3, then futzing around with tags, ratings, formatting & so on. I believe that I've now archived all the stories I've posted, anywhere, since I got re-involved in online fandom earlier this year. Except one, which I'm clearly not going to finish & I decided I don't like that much anyway. (Oh yeah, I'm PeroxidePirate there, too.)

buncha stats + link to a brand new Firefly fic under the cut! )



I had some other thoughts on Yuletide (I'm stuck! Meep!) and Real Life (dogs + rain =/= fun; bleached-blond hair "temporarily" dyed black = Big Adventures in Coloration)... but, again, need to do something else with the rest of my evening. Like fix the hair color. Or focus on the new source material that's going to save my butt in the Yuletide exchange. But we'll see.

OMG, I actually wrote a fic!! Ok, it's 300-odd words of total crack, and it wasn't even my idea in the first place. But, technically speaking, I wrote a fic! It's been a while. Enjoy.
