Dunno if anyone's interested, but I'm seeing this meme around a lot again, so I thought I'd throw it out there:

Pick any story I've written, or, in the case of my longer, chaptered works, any chapter from any story I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you the equivalent of a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you’d expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

Pretty much all my fic can be found here now.

I couldn't resist.

Fandom: BSG (2003)
Characters: Kara and Socrata Thrace
Timeline: Pre-series.
Warnings: For once, for a miracle, I can think of nothing to warn for! Except possibly dubious craft practices. I'm fairly sure one could make ornaments this way, but I've certainly never done it, and I'm sure it'd be trickier than I've indicated.
Note: For [livejournal.com profile] deborah_judge. I didn't manage to get Leoben in there, but I managed to explain why Kara was making these ornaments... ♥

I think I need a weekend to recover from my weekend.

It was mostly good - hen night / bachelorette night on Friday night (hooray for awesome drinking and dancing debauchery with my fantastic friends), followed by a craft day at [livejournal.com profile] shadawyn's on Saturday, and a birthday party for [livejournal.com profile] tavern_wench1's adorable little monster today.

Less awesome was the fire alarm that woke us up at 2:30 this morning, which turned out to only be our apartment and, upon investigation by some very nice and patient firemen, also turned out to be caused not by fire (fairly obvious) or by carbon monoxide (the less obvious second guess), but rather by the roof above us leaking into the smoke detector and causing it to go off. Maintenance has been notified and a bucket placed to catch any further dripping, but I hope it doesn't rain any more until we've got things settled. :P So yes, I need another darned weekend. Too sleepy.

Anyway! More of the fic.

Rating: PG

For the moment, these will be coming out weekly. :)

The piece that [livejournal.com profile] hearts_blood and I wrote together for this year ended up getting a bit too big for a single post, so we'll be updating it in chapters over the next little while. It's not a WIP apart from a few little tweaks and additions that are ongoing... it's just big.

This is also the first part of the Delenn/Neroon AU that we've both been chattering about for nigh on a year, now. Hooray!

Title: In the Light of Two Moons, pt 1

Rating: PG
Pairing: Delenn/Neroon
Word Count: 8160
Summary: The singing drew Delenn from her sleep, as it had for the last two nights. Two voices, low and intertwining, chanting ancient prayers and making music of one another.

4 – Do you have a "muse" character, that speaks to you more than others, or that tries to push their way in, even when the fic isn't about them? Who are they, and why did that character became your muse?

Hahaha, lots.

The characters who 'live in my head.' )
rivendellrose: (yeek)
Apparently this is the most "serious" Starbuck icon I have. *shrugs* I guess it works.

Fandom: BSG (2003)
Characters: Kara Thrace, Leoben, mentions of others.
Warning! Warnings: Blood, gore, and character death.
Summary: Kara can't seem to get away from death. Or from Leoben.
Spoiler Warning! Spoilers through the end of the series.
Notes: All [livejournal.com profile] deborah_judge's fault, mostly for dropping a Leoben-muse in my lap. He won't go away. This whole thing was his idea.
Title: Monsters

It didn't take me long to get behind in the fanfic meme, but I'm picking it right back up and making up for a bit of lost time!

2 – Name the fandoms you've written in, and how much you've written in that fandom, and if you still write in it.

AND:

3 – For each of the fandoms from day two, what were your favorite characters to write?

Oh boy.  Okay, in my world, fandoms never really die - things I don't write for anymore are marked as "on hiatus," because I never really know whether or not I'll come back to them at some point, if someone requests something or if I come up with a new idea or decide to finish something that got dropped partway through.  If I mark something as "still writing," it's because I either have something I'm currently working on, or I'm actively seeking and looking forward to new ideas in that fandom. A Lot of Fandoms )
rivendellrose: (Delenn2)
All the B5 fen around here should go take a look at [livejournal.com profile] hearts_blood's Delenn/Neroon fic over here, with bonus Branmer. Not only is it totally awesome, but it's the first publicly-visible bit of the slightly monstrous AU that's been eating both our brains for the last few weeks. XD

And now I am off to pick up my sandwich. This whole online ordering thing from the awesome little cafe next door to the office is very handy, and also totally addictive. ♥
rivendellrose: (toaster)
Fandom: BSG
Characters: Leoben and Kacey, mention of Kara
Title: "To Be My Own"
Summary: She's meant to be his. They both are.
For: [livejournal.com profile] deborah_judge, with thanks for the loaning of her muse. He really is very amicable, even if he did insist that a drabble was far too short.

Warnings: Kidnapping of a child, and reference to this fandom's would-be Stockholm Syndrome situation.

Notes: I cannot for the life of me remember what we called the marketplace on New Caprica (if it was ever called anything?), so I have dubbed it 'the agora.' Agora means marketplace in Ancient Greek. *Shrugs* And if I've totally borked canon somewhere along the line, please forgive me - TwizTV's scripts are helpful, but only go so far. :P

To Be My Own )
rivendellrose: (end of the world)
Whee, first finished fic in a good while, and the first ever in BSG.

Fandom: BSG (new)
Title: "A Relationship in 200 Pieces (With a Few Screws Loose)"
Characters: Helo, Athena, Boomer, and Starbuck.
Summary: Any relationship has its complications, and theirs is by no means normal.
Pairing: Inevitably, Helo/Athena (you didn't actually think I'd do something else for my first fic in this fandom, did you?).
Warnings: A lot of swearing, but since the majority of it is as technically safe as the show, I suppose I'm okay on that count. Other than that, I can only say that this follows canon through S4, so spoilers for anybody like me who didn't catch it first time around.
Notes: Unbeta'd, because I could sense a tendency growing in me to twiddle with it forever. If you see errors, please let me know and I'll try to correct them ASAP.

When asked why they do the things they do, Humans talk about gut instinct. )
rivendellrose: (end of the world)
You know that thing when you've finally dragged yourself out of a few weeks of not being able to write anything, and you've managed to write most of a story, but then when you get to where the end ought to be you just sort of keep staring blankly at the screen, twiddling with dialogue that goes absolutely nowhere, and vaguely feeling like you should probably just give up and have the ship explode or something?

Yeah, that's about where I am right now.

Writing woes! These characters hate me and I can't particularly blame them! And some spoilers for BSG, given, well, those are the characters that hate me. )

In short: Somebody please tell the characters hanging out in my head to play nicely?

Time to get back to work. Only one and a half days until the new office. ♥

more fic!

Happy Halloween, and Blessed Samhain to everyone who celebrates!

I'm going to be heading off pretty quick to make dinner and to make sure I have a few candles laid in for lighting later on - it's my first holiday in quite a while that I actually intend to celebrate with something approaching a ritual (not much of one, mind, but this year Samhain seems like something I need to do for my own mental sanity, and... I've missed it), so I want to be sure I can find the few things I'll need. ...That being pretty much candles, matches, and a seasonally appropriate BPAL, so once I've tracked down my candle collection I guess I'm good. Maybe in the next house I'll put up an altar again, maybe not. Not sure. Either way, this'll do for now.

Oh, and here's one more fic. ;)


Fandom: B5
Characters: John and Delenn
Title: Trick or Treat
Summary: for [livejournal.com profile] kungfuwaynewho, who wanted to see Delenn asking about all the little kids running around asking for candy. Just a short bit of silliness.
Rating: Totally G.
Disclaimer: I don't own 'em, I'm not trying to make money off 'em, I'm just playing with 'em for a little bit.

Trick or Treat )
rivendellrose: (Delenn2)
Fandom: B5
Characters: Delenn, Susan, Lennier.
Warning / Rating: Safe and G.
Disclaimer: I don't own them, I'm not making money, I'm just playing a little bit.
Summary: For [livejournal.com profile] hearts_blood, who asked for Delenn/Lennier (natch), post-"Sleeping in Light," with the prompt of The Wild Swans at Coole, by W.B. Yeats. This was a tricky one, not least because I got a little caught up in my time-scheme issues. And also because Susan insisted on being involved. Borrows a little from the continuity of my earlier fic Out Here, although it should still be entirely understandable without reference to that.
Title: The Nineteenth Autumn

The Nineteenth Autumn )
rivendellrose: (day of the dead)
Fandom: Hellboy (movies)
Characters: Hellboy, Liz, the twins referred to at the end of the 2nd movie.
Warnings and Rating: Safe for kids and kittens, totally G.
Disclaimer: I don't own them, don't make money off them; I'm just playing for fun.
Summary: [livejournal.com profile] narsilion wanted to see Hellboy taking the twins trick-or-treating.
Title: Halloween Out

Halloween Out )
rivendellrose: (Nuala / a creature of autumn)
Halloween fic the second, and I do hope this one doesn't disappoint.

Fandom: Hellboy (movie-canon)
Characters: Abe, Nuala, Manning, mentions of the rest of the team.
Summary: [livejournal.com profile] websandwhiskers asked to see "Halloween from the flip side, i.e. the Fey view of it. Bonus points for BPRD Agents viewing Halloween the way cops view New Year's Eve. Bonus Bonus points for Red and Liz's twins being involved somehow." I managed to get most of this, I think, though it took a damned circuitous route to get there.
Warnings: Un-beta'd, but otherwise quite safe and G-rated.
Title: "Conflict of Interest"
