sohotrightnow: ([stock] what's going on on this side)
It would probably help if I'd included the link to the story in that fic post. /o\ This is what happens when you get out of practice posting fic, kids!

whaaaat

Oh dip, I now have drafts in various stages of completeness for all five squares on a bingo???? This is a big deal for me, guys. Also they're in five different fandoms, which is also mind-blowing, if not more so, because I had not felt that connected to a lot of things, fannishly. (In case you missed it: here is the one that's really complete so far, a very silly Downton AU where Anna and Mary work at a pastry shop in space.)

I mean, some of them are SUPER draft-ish, at the moment, one in particular because it started turning into a whole long STORY, and then I was psyching myself out and convinced that I was ~never~ going to finish it, so I took a break from trying to piece the scenes together and just wrote a vignette version of it, to reassure myself that I could actually complete SOMETHING. And it's very stream-of-consciousness and I was half-asleep when I wrote it so I think it needs a ton of editing, but, you know, that's doable. I think I can get everything edited and posted by the October 31 deadline.

I mean, given that the one I've posted so far has 42 hits and not so much as a kudo, let alone a comment, I am not convinced that even once I've edited them they will be any good, but I am happy with them, which I guess is the most important thing. I mean, mostly, I realize it's probably just that I posted on a Friday evening, which is not a great time for it anyway, and also it's f/f and a weird AU, but the hits going up and still seeing no feedback is a little unsettling anyway. OH WELL. The important thing is just reminding myself that I can write, I think. If what I'm writing is terrible and everyone is too embarrassed to tell me, well, I gotta start somewhere.

Anyhoo, bingos! That is new for me. Usually I just complain about not being able to get anything done, crank out 500 words within the last few weeks of amnesty, and repeat the whole cycle all over again. A bingo period is new, let alone completing one before amnesty begins.

In non-fandom news, yesterday I attended a lovely cocktail party/book discussion at [personal profile] cyprinella's, with special guest Amy Stewart to talk about her absolutely delightful The Drunken Botanist. So things are pretty ok, I think, at the moment. (Knock wood.)

Welp time to go do my weekly cleaning. Later, bbs!

oh come on

ahhhhh this stupid fic is already at nearly 6k, are you kidding me??? I just want to get some silly PWP kicked out in time for k_b amnesty, come on. On the one hand, I want to give up on getting it done for that and just do a drabble bingo to to get the credit for finishing, and finish this independently, but on the other hand, I sort of suspect that if I don't have that deadline hanging over my head I won't actually finish it at all? THIS DUMB HOBBY. /o/

It's getting all plotty and characters are having feelings at each other and omggggg IM3 gave me so many ideas for this stupid OT4 and come onnnnnn, why can't I just make my paper dolls kiss and be done with it. >:|

JANE/THOR/PEPPER/TONY 4EVERRRRRR )

Ugh, maybe I can just cut down the intro and the first sex scene; I think they work as a complete story. I can post them as is and then post the rest of it as a sequel or an extended version or as later chapters on AO3. Or maybe I'll just write a bunch of Sansa drabbles and keep plugging away at this? DECISIONS. This hobby, etc.
sohotrightnow: Thor with a big smile on his face. ([avengers] god of thunder and :D)
Ughhhhhh I keep trying to start drabbles so I can try to get something actually produced for k_b before amnesty ends and I keep ending up with actual stories that I am probably never going to finish, this hobby is the worst. >:(

On the other hand I am pretty delighted with this new, post-IM3, Tony/Jane/Thor/Pepper story for "rough body play", where Pepper and Tony propose a sex surrogate system so that Thor and Pepper don't need to worry about hurting their partners.

And now all eyes are on her. Thanks, Tony, she wants to say, but she looks into her glass a little more, and takes another sip. With her free hand, she takes Thor's in her own again, gives it a squeeze, to let him know she's not upset. "It's not a bad idea," she says.

She thinks she deserves a snappy superhero title just for daring to look at Thor after she says it, but instead of the big aching blue eyes she's expecting, he's gazing at their hands, too, and when he looks up and meets her eyes, they're just as full of warm curiosity as if she were explaining another theory to him.

So she does.

"We have to be so careful," she says. "I'm guessing that now, with the Extremis formula still in progress, they do, too." That helps get the blushing she can feel under control, the reminder that they're not the only ones with that problem in this building. "In even more ways than we do," and now she feels safer, now that she's back to hypothesizing. This is her ground, like battles are Thor's and mechanics are Tony's and making everything go smoothly is Pepper's. "Pepper doesn't only have superhuman strength to deal with. The Tower's well protected against electricity, so your storm-related abilities aren't as big an issue as her temperature ones. If she gets too hot -- "

"Well, she's always been -- " Tony begins, presumably because it's been far too long since anyone paid attention to him, but Jane just laughs the way she almost never does when Tony feels the need to offer commentary while she's working things out.


It has a line where Jane has to tear herself away from Thor lest they spend the evening gazing into each other's eyes gooily and "giggling like stoned undergrads", which I kind of adore.

Progress has been further hampered by the fact that mother has developed an uncanny ability to Skype me literally seconds after I've opened a document to work on some porn. Seriously, uncanny is in fact the word I want. I'm on my fourth attempt this week and this is the first one where it hasn't happened. I can't be mad, though; they've got a new computer with a little camera on it, so this is the first time in a year-plus that I've actually seen her instead of just talking on the phone.

(With her hairstyle -- and the dry heat helping her keep her hair flat -- and her new glasses she looks like Meryl in The Devil Wears Prada, and given how much she and I look like each other, I am now super-jazzed about how I'm going to look in thirty years.)

Also, I rewatched Avengers for the first time in ages last night. Still delightful, still want Loki to JUST SHUT UP UGHHHHHH. "I remember you tossing me into an abyss." YOU LET GO WHILE HE WAS BEGGING YOU NOT TO, YOU JACKASS. On the one hand, as [personal profile] fox1013 pointed out on Twitter, gaslighting is basically Loki's canonical superpower, but on the other hand, with mind control being such a thing, I sort of find myself wondering if there's not going to be a big twist where Loki may have been under some other influence himself? I should admit that I don't want this as an exculpatory thing so much as because I think it would be really, really funny if Brilliant Superior Loki were actually being played like a fiddle the whole time. Apparently fandoms being trolled is my fandom now; see also the amount of time this week I spent cackling at [twitter.com profile] redweddingtears.

Okay, as I've mentioned (complained about) to a couple of you (anyone who will listen), I haven't been in a particularly fiction-y mood, reading or writing, for the past few months. But this month's mini-challenge over at [community profile] kink_bingo is Tiny Bingos, which I actually feel like I am capable of doing! BUT I am a bit spoiled for choice, so I turn it over to you, Internet! Give me some pairings and I'll see if I can manage a drabble for you by the end of this month. Tall order, I know, but I feel like I might just be up to the challenge.

(Here's my card, if that gives you any ideas, although you don't have to include a kink with your prompt.)

Fandoms: Avengers (probably not good for anything with Bruce), Downton Abbey, Harry Potter, Doctor Who (2005 onwards), and of course my reliable standbys of Buffy/Giles, Buffy crossovers, and Aragorn/Boromir/Arwen. Crossovers, AUs, and threesomes welcome, multiple prompts totally welcome, and success is most likely if there's at least one female character in the mix (there are occasional exceptions, but I think Tony/Thor is pretty much the only one for any of these fandoms). Edit: Oh, also Game of Thrones!

Kinda tempted to try last year's game, of all Buffy crossovers, again, but THOR.

It's not that Jane doesn't appreciate free room and board, and lab space, and millions of dollars of equipment, and everything. It's just that there's no such thing as a free lunch.

Or something along those lines.

The thing is.

The thing is --

Okay, she's not 100% sure she can explain what the thing is in words, but it definitely has something to do with the fact that half of what's around her these days has a Stark logo on it, and half of what's left is from a completely different corner of the universe.

If she's thinking of it when she leaves for the lab in the morning, she has her own coffee mug. Times she's thinking of that: maybe three out of every ten. The rest of the time, it's a Stark Industries mug, or, on one memorable occasion, a goblet Thor insisted on fetching from his room for her.

He keeps them in the cupboard with the rest, which is mostly Stark-labeled glassware.
Yep. I really got nothing else at the moment, mostly, I just have this pretty delightful outline worked out on paper, so hopefully I'll actually have it as a full fic before too long. UGHHHH THOR/JANE/TONY HOW SO GRATE.

("I made most of this equipment myself!" No seriously Internet how great would Jane and Tony yelling at each other about inventions and making out be? THINK ABOUT IT.)

...it's [community profile] kink_bingo time again! Internet, oh my goodness gracious, I cannot deal with how awesome my card is.

Let's rap, Internet. )

All right, bbs, I was going to use this as a way to reward myself for finishing Yuletide, but the longer the day goes on the longer this fucker gets, so! As you may have heard, [community profile] kink_bingo's mini-challenge for this month is drabbles (well, miniature works, including anything under 100 words, but drabbles are easiest for me to aim for), and I was kind of toying with doing something silly and fun and id-ful, and since one of the places my id invariably returns to is Buffy crossovers, give me characters from other fandoms and I will try to produce a drabble of kinkfic about Buffy banging them. The idea is that I'll trade off and do one of these for every hundred words of Yuletide I write. GO.

ETA: HOLY SHIT I'M ACTUALLY PRODUCING SHIT AFTER TAKING PROMPTS

BtVS/Doctor Who, Buffy Summers/Martha Jones, drugs/aphrodesiacs
BtVS/Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Buffy/Jadzia/Worf, gangbang

I'd also like to point out that among other amazing things [personal profile] gloss suggested was Buffy/Ned Stark. ENDLESS DELIGHTED LOLS. This is right up there with Buffy, Worf, and Jadzia being BFFs/possibly having an ongoing threesome in terms of how adorbs and hilarious it would be. Half the time they would be SUPER SERIOUS and then the rest of the time she would troll him for being super serious and pretend that she was not every bit as angsty and srs bzns about everything.

Man, I keep working on writeups of things that happened on the trip/since I got back, but w/e, that is too much effort for now. Instead, here is my k_b card. Because, you know, the fact that I've only completed a single ficlet this year totally means I should sign up for a challenge! I sort of figure since I'm usually writing for an audience of, like, me and three other people tops anyway, I may just go whole-hog and just file the serials off and call what I'm writing original fic, if I keep drawing the blank re: fandom that I have been recently. Ughhhh it's so annoying, I want to do fanfic but I just can't seem to get into the headspace. W/e w/e, at the very least this ought to generate some fun ideas.

My card! )

WORK COMPUTER WHY ARE YOU SO SLOW TODAY, I AM TRYING TO GET THINGS ACCOMPLISHED. Everything's the worst, I swear. Let's talk about ~possibilities~ while I try to get work done, Internet!

I freaking love the *_bingo trend, in case you hadn't noticed. It's a nice prepackaged list of prompts just for me!

For instance, my [livejournal.com profile] schmoop_bingo card! This is going to be hilarious. )

Plus, for the lols, I used a bingo card generator and the list from the community to make myself a kink_bingo card. So here that is )

BRAINSTORMING SESSION: GO. I am totally looking forward to the "autumn holiday/festival" one on the Schmoop Bingo card. I have no idea what pairing/fandom it will be, or even what holiday, but it's going to be awesome. Maybe some kind of agricultural festival with SPN (well, let's be honest, Buffy/John, probably).

Stealing an idea from -- I want to say [personal profile] helens78, but I could be wrong, even more hilarity results from pairing corresponding squares from each card up. Although occasionally it results in things that work oddly well, like "drunken confessions of love" paired with "humiliation (verbal)". I'm actually coming up with a ton of ways that combination could work. Any of the combinations of kidfic/babyfic prompts with kinks are a bit horrifying at first glance, but, like, maybe the "kidfic (first injury)" one is some kind of ageplay thing? Well, no, because that one combines with "guns", which is a bit horrifying no matter how you slice it. D: I guess it could be some kind of ageplay thing still, involving, IDK, teaching them how to load a gun? Um.

This is the problem with the ALA convention; the office is so dead I have nothing to do but bingo cards.
