Hi Flisties! *waves* Long time no see. Well, I've posted lots of icons recently, but not much fic. That's mostly because everything I'm working on is for some challenge or other and is at the mercy of posting dates. Of course, those posting dates are what's saving my butt and making sure I actually write something, rather than just letting RL rule my time and make excuses for not letting out my creativity.

So, without further ado, here's what I'm currently working on fic-wise (titles and spoilery details are not included!) listed roughly in the order of when you can expect to see them posted.



Challenge: spn_j2_bigbang
Fic: a Jensen/Misha RPS sci fi AU. It is really frakking awesome, I promise.
Posting Date: Sometime between June 6 and the end of August 2011.
Anticipated Length: 100,000+ words.

Challenge: trekreversebang
Fic: Kirk/Uhura/Spock Reboot fic with lots of spying, angst, and undercover intrigue to illustrate lovely art made by one of the Reversebang artists!!
Posting Date: Sometime between Late May and Early July 2011.
Anticipated Length: 40,000-50,000 words.


trekreversebang

Challenge: queer_fest
Fics: Two Stargate Atlantis prompts one dealing with queer institutions of the Pegasus Galaxy the other dealing with John and guilt over waiting so long to come out.
Posting Dates: June 25 and 26, 2011.
Anticipated Length: 3,000-10,000 words each.

Challenge: deancasbigbang
Fic: A Dean/Cas story inspired by Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. There're lots of bad angels, Evil!Future Sam/Lucifer, and protective Cas with 17 or 18-year-old Dean both stuck out of their time. We know Angels can do time travel and they're very keen on trying to change history... so, why the hell not? It's just a hop-skip-and-a-jump from TSCC already.
Posting Date: Sometime after October 3, 2011
Anticipated Length: 20,000-100,000 words (depending on time and my muse's cooperation).

Challenge: j2_kane_bigbang
Fic: A slightly AU futurefic Crossover of Angel and Dark Angel focusing on Alec (Jensen's character from Dark Angel) and Lindsey (Chris's character from Angel). Lots of angst, action, and scifi goodness, with a side helping of Max/Illyria. :)
Posting Date: Sometime after October 5, 2011
Anticipated Length: 50,000 to 100,000 words.
Author Sign Ups | Artist Sign Ups Come and join us at the j2_kane_bigbang


In addition to these, I'm also planning to sign up for startrekbigbang to hopefully write the Bashir / Garak psychological thriller I wanted to write last year, but didn't have time for. I also signed up (or at least I filled out the form to sign up, and haven't heard a response from the mods yet) to be an Artist for atlantisbigbang. Yeah, I'm not really an artist (my icons are still on the meh side), but I'm getting better, and I missed author signups (and am still way too intimidated by the awesomeness of the writers in the SGA fandom) and want to participate in *some* way, and I DO make a LOT of Atlanis icons, so I figured it was a natural extension to go from there to bigbang art.

Now someone just has to tell my Muse to *stop* being so freaking creative or at least make me sit down and finish ONE of these stories ASAP!

Hope y'all will read. :)

P.S., I'm still working on another short fic in the Hunters of the Darkside 'Verse and a sequel to Lament in Winter. They just keep getting pushed aside 'cause my muse wants to do other things. *sigh* But I will get them finished someday, I promise.

haha, addicted is one word for it. Are you gonna sign up for Reverse and RPF as well?

*hides* *shhh* *swats hand* Don't remind my muse! Gah. She doesn't need any more inspiration.

I am so TEMPTED to sign up for both. Oy. I've never did regular Reverse (just trek reverse) and I really liked RPF the one year I did it. I don't know if I have time. *sigh* I really want to. But, but... Damn enablers. (Nah, I love you guys!)

What are the details / deadlines on both of those? Send me links and I'll think about it. I like reversebangs because I feel like the story is more constrained and less up to my muse's whims. I could do RPF if I had a good inspiration. Or I could do art for it. I'm getting better at Art really. In a lot of ways doin art is much less stressful (maybe it's 'cause I suck at it, or maybe it's just because my muse isn't tempted to make the equivalent of a 200K fic out of art... I think. Maybe I'm tempting fate).

Anyhoo, if you've got an idea for me for an RPF fic, I'd think about it. Of course I'm going to be job-hunting 'cause my current job expires at the end of September, and planning to move back to Seattle and trying not to lose my mind in here, so I'm also trying to keep this from being totally INSANE. (Or more than it already is.) How goes your BBs?

Let's put it this way, I'm 600 words away from 10K and my two main pairings still haven't interacted together...

I never did Reverse either, I just wrote a mini fic for Cassie last year because two of her authors disapeared on the same prompt.

I'll check for the links and give them to you :)

I found the links!! :D Neither is taking signups yet. That's cool. Looks like RPF is opening soon.

I was gonna ask, do you know what you're doing for RPF this year? I can't remember if that's one of the ones you already have plotted or not. If not, we could always try to collaborate or something. Or... you could give my muse an idea and then it would snowball from there. :D

I know the feeling you have with your BB... I sat down to write this one simple scene that shouldn't be too complicated, right? Well 2500 words later they still haven't gotten to the point of their conversation. I mean... SERIOUSLY. It wasn't a complicated conversation, but they had to go all angsty and emotional on me. (I'm talking about Jensen and Misha in my spn_j2_bigbang fic that goes unnamed here since this post is unlocked).

I am sure your characters will talk and interact beautifully!! You've put so much time and thought into this story it can't be anything but phenomenal.

Now... I just need help with a title for my Trekreversebang. I could use one for my j2_kane_bigbang too, but that one at least is a little ways down the road, so I've got time. Spn_j2_bigbang, deancasbigbang, and one of the queerfest fics all have titles already. WTF is going on there? Normally I'm 10 seconds from posting and my fic has no name.

I was gonna do Steve/Jared, the 1st story I ever tried writing and just never finished (both homeless, I killed Sandy and Jensen is an asshole.) I'd just have a LOT of work to do because it was a spectacular mess of outlines that didn't make sense together.

Here, those are the projects so far... subject to change, I could be talked into something different ;)

SNP_J2 – J2, CMM/Ian S. The Only Hope For Me Is You

RPF Big Bang – Steve/Jared – Mistakes We Knew We Were Making

J2_Kane – J2 + side of Chris/Danneel Wrestling Story

Vampire AU Big Bang : Jensen/Misha, Jared/Steve, Jared/Jensen, Jared/? Past Jared/Chad, Vampire fucked up story – When The Sunshine Dies

Very, very impressive list of projects and titles and themes! Your Steve/Jared, asshole Jensen, dead Sandy fic sure sounds intriguing. I'm sure going back and doing it now will be much easier. You've written a LOT since you first attempted it and you've completed some very large fics, so it shouldn't be so scary now. Looking back on my first bigbang I remember what a total frakking mess the whole thing was. People still read it (in fact I got comments on it and it's 'verse today), but the whole writing process was a massive amount of having no freaking clue what I was doing and wondering how the hell I wound up with a 91,000+ word "story." I also had a lot of fear and hesitation about decision making that actually made it difficult to sit down and write. I could see some scenes so clearly and I didn't want to get them wrong and then the other stuff, I was afraid to commit because then I'd be tied down to that idea and what if I thought of something better? Yeah. My writing process has come a looooong way. And so has yours!! I'm so proud of you and your awesome creativity!

Okay, I just need an idea for RPF bigbang this year and I'll totally do it. :D

Now I'll go back to researching the canonical history of Romulans and various other fanonical interpretations... I just need to settle on a title for this trekreversebang fic. I know, I know, I really need to "finish" my spn_j2_bigbang, but I just did a massive amount of plotting for trekreversebang today and I want to get it all down and organized without losing momentum.

I wasn't actually trying to advertise. Although it would be cool if more people participated, the post had no ulterior motives whatsoever. I just wanted to check in with my f-list.
