Dear Yuletide Author,
You're the greatest! Thank you so much! I am incredibly excited for whatever you come up with. Please treat this as a general sort of guide to the inside of my head, not a laundry list of requests. I am going to be delighted with whatever you come up with.

General fiction things )
Snow White and the Huntsman, Deathless, The Secret World of Arrietty )

oh my stars, the avengers fic of my discontent is finally done!

sleep with fists closed, and shoot straight (avengers movieverse, clint/natasha/loki, r).
full content warnings at the link!

Written for [personal profile] liminalliz for the [profile] scarletteenfans auction, a truly appalling amount of time later. It's not even in the same fandom as she initially prompted and turned out twice as long and ten times as weird. ~*friendship*~

Also many thanks to [personal profile] fahye, who took this from a totally unmitigated disaster to a thing with actual structure.
whatimages: ([digging a ditch])
- I made a new tumblr, if you care about these sorts of things @ whatimages, for consistency. I'll be using it for fannish crap and navel gazing about characterization. Right now it's all loki all the time because holy damn do I have an excess of feelings about loki being a queerdo.

- Still writing absurd avengers fic. I think I've turned a corner on it and I more or less know the arc of it. There are a couple sticky transition bits to work out and a fair bit of just slogging through stuff/copying from my notebook. If you've been pressganged into this project, stand by for an onslaught of emails

- Obviously I loved the shit out of Snow White and the Huntsman. UGH SO GREAT. etc )

- I have a job! It's kind of terrible because my boss is a horrible monster (according to literally everyone) but it's the kind of terrible I am able to deal with because I am amazing. Whatever, not being unemployed is pretty sweet.

- The day after my first paycheque I emailed my fave tattoo artist about a new piece. RESPONSIBLE ADULTHOOD.

- OH ALSO: I have a goodreads!. In case you were wondering what my english degree was good for.

- Those last three items are a horrible post-bachelor's gen y cliche. *facepalm*

- I sent the last of my grad school things off at the beginning of the month; now I wait an unspecified length of time to hear back. I think I'll get into one and probably not into the other. I mean, I'll be okay even if I don't get in, but talking to one of my bffs who is doing her master's (canadian history) has made me really miss school. I just don't have enough crunchy academic nonsense in my life rn.

Though M did hear back--his first choice program called him to offer him a place and a bucket of money. And we found out last week that his application for a government research grant has passed some kind of magical signpost on its journey through government bureaucracy and he probably is going to get it (?). Either way it is pretty great and I am obvs super proud.

- Over the past couple of months or so I've gradually been acquiring a group of nerdy hot gay lady friends. YOU GUYS. All of my friends moved away in may and now I have friends again! and I don't have to pretend to be cool or anything and they are into my belligerent weirdo ways. It's great. Friendssss!

- I decided arbitrarily that it was time for me to finally actually watch Legend of the Seeker, two years after its cancellation. This is apparently the year I catch up on all the tv I missed while in school. But anyway, it's delightful and fun without being overly goofy, and the hair/faces/cleavage/abs action is fantastic. things about a show that is four years old )

Anyway--it's great and it's probaby what I will do with my weekend instead of finally finishing my sherlock fic. Because it's been six months, what's another few days? (worst writer, worst life)

- Also knitting! Really the reason I started LotS was because I wanted something to watch while knitting. But I think it's going to consume my brain for a few weeks OH OOPS. I'm finally making a stab at knitting in the round and I have to say, it's confusing as all get out.

- Speaking of stuff to watch: my sister suggested I watch/read Buso Renkin (sp?) because someone gets their heart replaced with magic and that is very relevant to my interests. Does anyone know anything about it? I was thinking of just watching the anime because trying to read manga makes my whole brain cry (I can barely deal with a combination of words and images as it is; when they're laid out the other way I just shut down). Anyway, thoughts?

- I'm finishing up my grad school applications like a responsible person. I was putting off this last one because I was under the impression that I needed to submit both a letter of intent and a research proposal, and I was procrastinating on the research proposal. After researching for a bit today and banging out a page and a half, I discovered I was wrong--the research proposal is like a paragraph within the letter of intent. Geez. I guess I deserved that. I choose to believe this means I'm ahead of the curve for next year. Yes

- my exciting mental health )

-Related to functional adult human shit: I have a job! Finally! It's technically a long term temp placement, so I don't actually have a contract or anything. It's staggeringly tedious and totally redundant but at least it's not stressful and the office environment isn't abusive. Most importantly: money! Aw yis.

- I managed to break my blog writing intertia/endless anxietybomb spiral and make a post at my real person blog. I'm chewing on another one, because I think I have finally, finally found an answer to the question [personal profile] allchildren asked months ago on tumblr about the meaning of femme . Yes, it's been bugging me for that long. STAY TUNED, I guess?

- I updated the fic, if you are into that sort of thing. Because I am me, I've decided that the draft that has been complete since october needed a complete revision of the third act. Obviously. Hopefully it will get done before another three months pass. #slowestwriter

The fic that ate my brain for what feels like possibly ever is finally sort of done! Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the great Sherlock genderbend AU.

Title: Incandescent (Part 1)
Rating: E/NC17
Fandom: Sherlock (BBC)
Summary: Incandescent: adj. Characterized by ardent emotion or intensity or brilliance. "John suspects Sherlock Holmes might be the strangest woman he’s ever met in his life. "

Warnings: This fic portrays a relationship that I would describe as "not exactly healthy," though it is a love story. Additionally: canon-typical violence, rough/possessive sex, and a moment of consensual asphyxiation.

Written before Series 2 aired, making this an AU-within-an-AU.

With love to [personal profile] liminalliz who has been the most stalwart of co-conspirators <33

Read it at AO3!

Fandom Supports Scarleteen!
[dw community profile] scarleteenfans
Scarleteen.com has been the premier online sexuality resource for young people worldwide since 1998. They were there when we needed them. Now they need us.
Offer or bid on fanworks to support the best sex ed site on the web!

I wanna tell you a story! The story is about me being a young confused queerball who was super inhibited and had few friends and no one to talk to! But I had Questions about Things. Scarleteen helped me come out and answered my sex questions and provided actual useful queer positive sex ed. Scarleteen was my introduction to sex-positivity, and I can legitimately say it changed my life. If I manage to do something with my life half as positive, informative and important as this website, I will consider myself to be a complete badass.

My household budget is super tight rn, but I'm gonna flip them ten bucks. I'm also offering my fic services at auction! At least 2k words of fic written by me to your specifications! Exciting, no? Here is my thread! Go, bid, feel awesome and get fic.

- As you can see, I am porting to DW for realsies! LJ is one annoyance after another at this point. I had a DW, but I deleted it and made a new one with my same username in the name of consistency. I'm not going to be porting any old entries or fics. I'm archiving everything worth keeping at AO3, don't much care about the rest.

- Yuletide! Yuletide is among my favourite parts of the december holiday madness. This year I received in remembrance of may, a wonderful Arthurian legend genderbend fic that was simultaneously so many of the things I love while being something I never knew I wanted. I wrote The Way I Have Forgotten Back, a Once Upon a Time Snow/Charming fic I produced at the last minute because my original idea got terrifyingly overgrown. I'm not 100% happy with it, but I found it surprisingly easy to write once I sat down to do it. I would have liked to write some pinch hits or treats, but my extremely poor planning of real life diy gifts made that impossible. Next year!

- My NYR is MOAR WRITING!!!11 Also working on some body acceptance and self love stuff, but mostly it is write all the things. I would like very much to finally produce some kind of coherent original fiction. I also need to get back on the blogging horse, but it's definitely not as difficult or daunting a task as writing fiction. I want to stop anxiety bombing myself about writing. I want to stop getting lost in the wilderness of my own brain, and I want to stop giving up.

I hope you all had happy holidays etc! I am once more ensconced at home and about to watch the new Sherlock, aw yiss.
