Does anyone know/care to speculate on the likelihood of Goldenlake holding a holiday fic exchange this year? Because if there is going to be one, we ought to list it in the Yuletide "Has Its Own Holiday Exchange" list.

A meme, to help me get back to writing. Borrowed from [ profile] littlemissgriff.

1. Give me a character or pairing 
2. Give me a text from last night.
3. I'll write you a drabble or ficlet based on the scenario.

Fandoms: Pierce (any); Star Trek: TNG; Doctor Who 2005 to present; Torchwood S1-3; Buffy; Firefly.

I don't promise reliability here, but it sounds like fun. Hit me!

From [ profile] q_sama. This was fun!

The one who seduced you, screwed you over, broke your heart into a million pieces, and laughed about it Daria.

The old flame you don't see very often any more but whom you still enjoy getting together with for a few drinks and maybe a pleasant nostalgic romp Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

The mysterious dark one with whom you used to sit up talking until 3 AM at weird coffee houses and with whom you were quite smitten until you realized that s/he really was fucking crazy Firefly.

The one you spent a whole weekend in bed with and who drank up all your liquor and whom you'd really like to get with again, although you're relieved that s/he doesn't live in town:  Aurthurian mythology, specifically Catherine Christian's The Sword and the Flame.

The steady: none right now; the last was Emelan.

The alluring stranger whom you've flirted with at parties but have never gotten really serious with  Provost's Dog; also Bloody Jack.

The one you hang out with and have vague fantasies about maybe having a thing with, but ultimately you're just good buddies  Diana Wynne Jones, many books.

The one your friends keep introducing you to and who seems like a hell of a cool person except that it's never really gone anywhere  Doctor Who.

The one who's slept with all your friends, and you keep looking at him/her and thinking, "How the hell did you land all these cool people?"  Harry Potter.

The one who gave you the best damned summer of your life and against whom you measure all other potential partners  Tortall.

The one you recently met at a party and would like to get to know better  Twelve Houses.

The old flame you wouldn't totally object to hooking up with again for a one-night romp if only they'd clean up a bit  Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Your hot new flame Um, see above, though I don't know how serious it is.

The one who stole your significant other I once had a relationship fall to pieces over Daria and Dave Matthews Band. And Miriam's heart currently belongs to Doctor Who.

Watching a TNG episode called "Coming of Age," in which Wesley Crusher undergoes an Ordeal of Knighthood psych test in which he must face his deepest fears and Captain Picard is offered the position of Training Master Director of Star Fleet Academy.

I need an icon that just says, "fangirl cackle."

As many of you already know, I've resigned from moderating at Goldenlake. I haven't been on the board that much recently, and I'm really feeling the shortness of time, the long hours I'm working, and so many places (fandom and not) I'd like to direct whatever energy remains. I'm not leaving Pierce fandom entirely, and I'm sure I'll wander on over after I eventually read Bloodhound. Plus, one way or another, I'll try not to lose touch with my wonderful Glake friends! But I need to step back for a while.

Meanwhile, I'm slowly working my way through Star Trek: The Next Generation, and loving it with as much intensity as I did in the early 90s, when I saw it all the first time. I keep meaning to put up reaction posts to individual episodes, but so far I haven't because... well, I'd rather watch the next episode than stop to write about the one I just saw. *grin* I'm still on the first season, and delighted to be fangirling something with this much canon to enjoy.  

I'm still enamored with Doctor Who, too, in all of the incarnations I've seen. The second half of S6 starts up pretty soon, and I really would like to watch some classic Who, too. Also Torchwood: Miracle Day, which I must figure out how to get sometime soon.

Then, I've started Fortune and Fate as commute reading, and might have to track down more Sharon Shinn after that. And/or the rest of the Tomorrow series. Definitely the second and third Hunger Games books. And Will Grayson Will Grayson in paper-book form, since I loved it so much as an audio-book.

So you see the fangirl is not going to get bored any time soon.

Tangentially, I'm out of inspiration to write anything at all. I don't even know if I'll do NaNoWriMo this year. I need to recharge the creativity with no pressure on myself to meet deadlines or participate in events. I'm also missing the process of editing and refining what I write, so I might put some time into editing and/or expanding some of my recent fics. Anyway, I don't feel like I have writer's block, exactly -- just like I need a break, like I'm not ready to create anything else just now.

All of this means I'm dropping into fandom!lurker mode for now, if I'm involved in fandom(s) much at all. Eventually something will grab me strongly enough for me to return to searching out fandom communities and hunting down and/or writing fic... it always does! I just don't know what, or when.

Until then, this journal will be primarily "friends only," and about my day to day life (dogs, running, cooking, my friends and family). If I don't have you friended and you'd like me to, drop a line. If I do have you friended and you're not interested in that stuff, defriending amnesty is in full effect.

I'm having fun with Lady Knight, Squire, and's "search inside the book" feature.

Number of results for:

  • chamber of the ordeal: 31 in Squire, 16 in Lady Knight
  • fear of heights: 4 in Squire, 3 in Lady Knight
  • unknown benefactor: 2 in Squire
  • nothing man: 24 in Lady Knight
  • certain blue eyed sergeant: 0 in Squire, 0 in Lady Knight

It seems the descriptions of Kel's having lost her fear of heights aren't as pervasively repetitive as I thought. And.... horror of horrors, could "certain blue eyed sergeant" be an entirely fan-created phenomenon? Even "blue eyed sergeant" yields zero results. Hmm.

This is the fault of [ profile] veras1  and the Drabble-Mattic

The Miracle Of The Dog

Kel hated Christmas. She didn't just dislike Christmas, she hated it like a wisp of silk borne on the summer breeze. She loathed it.

Every December, Kel would feel herself getting all glinting inside. She refused to put up a Christmas saddlebag, she snapped at anyone familiar enough to sing a carol in her vicinity, and she never, ever bought anybody any presents.

It gets better... )

Guys, I wrote a fic! *flails* It's 300 words -- barely worth putting under a cut -- but still. *flails moar* Will crosspost tomorrow, after I'm sure I'm done tweaking. For now, here, have a ficlet. (Also, does Shinko have the gift? I don't think she does..)

Title: Wedding Night
Fandom: Tortall (Tamora Pierce)
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Roald & Shinkokami
Summary: It doesn't go the way she expected.

I'm listening to the Lady Knight audiobook for the first time. Yup, I still want to be Keladry of Mindelan when I grow up. )

First, [ profile] kitty_ryan  wrote me a fantastic Doctor Who fic, related to "The Girl in the Fireplace," La Belle en Vous Aimant. Reinette watches as Rose forgets to turn left. I've flailed like crazy about it on her LJ, and in a comment on the story itself, but I haven't yet recced it here. So. It's lovely; go read it.

Second, I've archived something like 15 recent stories at both Archive of Our Own and The King's Own (except for the one that wasn't Tamora Pierce fic; that one's only at A03), including various birthday fics for various people, and all my Peculiar Pairings entries. I also have one story and a couple of drabbles that have ribbons at TKO, because they placed in Piercefic and the Goldenlake Drabble Tournament!
