Who has two thumbs and finally managed to get a fic finished and sent off to beta for the first time in months? YO. *dances*

Now to finish the Arrow fic I've been poking at as a palate cleanser and I can dive into [profile] spn_j2_bigbang.


Tomorrow we return to interrupted memage.

*falls into an exhausted heap*

ETA: I forgot how I was going to end this! TELL ME OF YOUR TRIUMPHS, FLIST OF WONDERS! LET US ALL CELEBRATE OUR TRIUMPHANT WEEKENDS! (They don't have to be writing triumphs! You can triumphantly do the dishes!)
misachan: (Conviction)
For anyone who missed it, I'm doing the WiP meme here!

Day 06 - Favorite episode of your favorite TV show

Ha. Ahahahahahaha, yeah no. Here, have my favorite episode from multiple favorite shows:

Doctor Who: Dalek. (Classic Who: The Mind Robber)

Supernatural: On The Head Of A Pin. Or The Rapture. Or The Man Who Would Be Thing. Or A Very Supernatural Christmas. Or Mystery Spot. Or...I'll get back to you.

Lost: The Constant. (If anyone ever tells you they have a different favorite episode, they are lying.)

Heroes: Company Man. Jesus, that episode. Or Five Years Gone.

Star Trek: Amok Time! Or Balance Of Terror, they're such different episodes it's hard to choose.

Babylon 5: Interludes And Examinations (not the one you'll usually hear B5 fans pick, but I'm a crying mess every time.)

Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (Granada): Norwich Builder or The Blue Carbuncle (which does have hands-down my favorite string of deductions.)

Rome: 33. My heart, you guys.

Justice League Unlimited: Double Date.

And since it was my pick for favorite show, MST3K: Manos: the Hands Of Fate. But really, there's no bad there. Except for Sidehackers. (*shakes fist at Sidehackers*)

Rest of the days )
misachan: (Nat)
I changed the sheets on the bed, took the old ones down the basement to the washing machine and by the time I got back up the stairs Lexi was stretched out on the bed all Ahhhhhhhhhh. T shirt material sheets from Target: Cat approved.

Day 05 - A show you hate

I don't hatewatch as a general rule but my God, did I hate the recent reboot of V. Haaaaaaated it, and I wanted to like to so much because I loved the original. And it had Morena Baccarin and Alan Tudyk and Elizabeth Mitchell! I like all those people! How bad can it really be?

So, so bad. Glacial pace plotting, sets so badly CGIed you could practically see the pixels, a human rebellion so inept they would be laughed out of a Syfy original movie and set in NYC despite having a cast so white there were two black characters. And one of them was actually a lizard alien.


Honorable mention to American Diggers, which I haven't actually seen but hate in solidarity with [personal profile] peachpai. And apparently there's a spin off now? Whatever, Spike.

Rest of the days )


From [personal profile] morganoconner: WIP buttkick: these are titles/brief descriptions of my active WIPs. Pick one and I'll write you 100 or more new words for it. Or give a sneak peek, since I'm all ~deadline panic~ this weekend. Order is completely arbitrary.

Note: Does not include fics already signed up for challenges (so adding those would make this an even 20 21. Missed one.) I'm defining WiP here as something I have a file for or went to the trouble of outlining. Which I have apparently done a lot, because Long List Is Long. Mostly SPN and some Avengers, which one lonely Heroes fic because I will write that some day.

The list! )
misachan: (Default)
Oliver Queen's definition of "alone" (as in "I was alone on the Island for five years") is, um. Suspect.:) Also, fandom, I have a mission for you! Everyone needs to write me spoilers for tonight's Arrow )


Day 04 - Your favorite show ever

This is an impossible question. How does anyone answer this question?


Okay, let's bypass the usual suspects (because I cannot pit Doctor Who, Supernatural, Babylon 5, Homicide, the first 3 seasons of Smallville, Star Trek etc. against each other for ownership of my heart) and go for the show which has probably episode-for-episode brought me more joy than any other: Mystery Science Theater 3000.


I'm gonna go see if I still have the Manos: The Hands Of Fate theme techno remix on my computer and rock out for a while. 'Scuse me.

Rest of the days )
misachan: (Conviction)
Let's just pretend today is yesterday, okay? Cool? Cool.

Day 03 - Your favorite new show (aired this TV season)


I'm taking this to mean actually new this season shows and not shows I just started watching this season (so no Once Upon A Time, for instance.) Not a hard choice; I only picked up two new shows this season and while I'm digging The Following that's more of a guess-this-episode's-plot-twist kind of show, not a show I'm going to watch with my heart, y'know?

And I genuinely do love the crap out of Arrow, even if I do spend every Wednesday snarking it and it's terrible justice system on twitter. Whoever writes that show really loves the DCU or at the very least has the DC encyclopedia open in his or her lap while writing; the show is just steeped in comics lore, from Digg's name to Felicity Smoak being stolen away from Firestorm canon to all the the villains. Throw in John Barrowman clearly having the time of his life (you've never seen a man giddier to be evil) and a genuinely twisty conspiracy plot you have everything you need for a good time.

Not to mention Slade Wilson. He likes swords.

(Although seriously show, quit villainizing the only honest cop on the show for wanting to catch the murderous vigilante on the loose, okay?)

Rest of the days )
misachan: (Default)
Ugh, writing. How do you work?

Day 02 - A show that you wish more people were watching

ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN! C'mon, people. It is adorable and the first season is streaming on Netflix. Marvel high school AU! Coulson undercover as the school principal (and taking the job really seriously!) Fury being a BAMF superspy! Danny and Luke and Sam and Ava! Fantastic versions of MJ and Harry and Norman and Aunt May! There really is no bad here.

I really love this show and wish everyone else loved it too. I can't wait for S2 to hit netflix so I can marathon it the way I did S1.

Rest of the days )
misachan: (Default)
Just finished shoveling off the steps and making something resembling a path (one of the joys of renting is that I'm not responsible for the whole sidewalk!) We got...not quite a foot, I would say? It's hard to tell with how the plows pushed everything around. Could be a lot worse and nowhere near as bad as the mess a couple of Halloweens ago.

*hugs to everyone buried out there*

Let's have a meme.

Day 01 - A show that should never have been canceled

Firefly is too easy and Young Justice is too raw, so let's go for an old one: Space: Above And Beyond. A Sci-fi show by Glen Morgan and James Wong, it centered on a group of rookie space marines forced into the front lines when the aliens Earth's at war with tear through the experienced units. Like B5 it had a five year plan but because it was on Fox it only got one and the last episode ended with all but two of the cast either grievously injured or in mortal peril. Thanks, Fox!

As a warning, you will not like the first four episodes. I didn't like the first four episodes, and I love this show. And I hated the main character. It gets so much better. Great female characters (Vansen especially), surprising, morally twisty plotting, all the characters develop (the main character I initially hated, while never becoming my favorite, got much more sympathetic) and I LOVED how they did the AIs. And T.C. McQueen will make your heart all achy.

Runner up: Human Target, which not only got cancelled but got completely messed with for an entire season and got the rug pulled out from under it just as it was finding its feet again. Thanks, Fox! *grumbles*

Rest of the days )


And now is the time for the making of pancakes and the watching of Project Runway, and then the writing of All The Words so I can finally get this monkey off my back (and then replace it with different monkey. There is always a monkey.)

Hello all! I feel like it's been an age.

Another Porn Battle round has ended (but fortunately [profile] salt_burn_porn is looking to start up.:) I managed to get three stories in the Battle which is less than I'd planned but more than I managed to finish any other round so I'm counting it as a win. They're already on AO3 since PB had a collection there but now that the round's over I'll start posting them here over the next few days. Two of them were for fandoms I'd never written before (and I admit, one was filling my own prompt because dammit, someone was Danny/Luke this round) and one was an SPN rarepair. So at least I'll manage to get something posted this month! /o\

Also, [personal profile] mizz_destiny tagged me with the icon meme, so I'll post that tomorrow.


All caught up on Once Upon A Time and I really want someone to write fic where Victor decides he's going to court Ruby like a Proper Victorian Gentleman and she's both boggled and kind of charmed by the whole thing. At least until she finally runs out of patience and deflowers him right there on one of the diner tables, because no one will convince me that guy knew the touch of anything except sweet black and white Science until he landed in Storybrooke.

I really need this in my life, guys.


Today is my brilliant baby sister's 28th birthday. How the fuck did that happen? Jesus. *starts comparison pricing walkers*
misachan: (Clint)
OH HEY GUYS IT'S PORN BATTLE TIME AGAIN! Or prompt time, anyway. Every year I make plans to do thid and every time I fail, but this time will be different! Porn Battle is an especially good excuse to give smaller fandoms and rare ships some play - I know I submitted some rare pairs in with my usual suspects.(Anything to entice someone to write some John/Bill/Ellen! And I'll have to leave some more, since I just realized forgot to prompt any Dean/Cas/Lisa, which cannot stand.)

(True Story: I first got the idea for Take The Wheel by perusing battle prompts - someone had prompted "Dean/Jimmy, constellation" and my brain went "Ooh. How would that go?" That led to the scene were Dean and Jimmy are looking at the stars, which led to how they got out to that side of the road, and the rest of the plot started to fall into place from there.


It's also [profile] spn_j2_bigbang time again! Writer's sign-up and Artist's sign-up. I'm already in there, so join me! Exit Wounds sequel or bust in 2013!


Because three things make a post, there is a new play on Broadway called Picnic.

Looking like this.

misachan: (Bingo)
I just really like bingo challenges, you guys. (Despite my what could charitably be called my lack of success with them so far this year.) Which brings us to [community profile] trope_bingo!

Cut for card. )

Dunno how I feel about this one yet. A plan of attack isn't leaping out at me, so I guess I'll see which square I fill first and then go from there. (Although the "huddle for warmth" square dovetails nicely with the hypothermia square on my [community profile] hc_bingo card. A two-fer!)

(And it's a little alarming how many of these I've already written.:)


So I'm most of the way through the first season of Ultimate Spider-Man and guys, I really want all of you to watch this show (streaming on Netflix!) so we can all talk about its awesomeness. I started watching because Coulson is a supporting character (he's principal of Peter's high school! Or undercover as one, anyway, and watching him "go native" in the role as Fury puts it is a joy) I never expected to fall for the show as hard as I have. It's basically an adorable high school AU with some of my favorite Marvel characters who rarely get this much play. Even Fury is adorable. I'd forgotten how much I like Spider-Man when he's not going around making deals with Mephisto. And the team! I love the team. Even Nova.:) But Ava! And MJ! Harry and Norman! I want to draw hearts all over them all.

And the show just reminds me of how hard I ship Danny Rand/Luke Cage in 616 continuity. I still have some half-written Danny/Luke fic lurking around on my hard drive and I want to read ALL of the cute fumbling high school shenanigans Danny/Luke Ultimate Spider-Man fic there could possibly be. I'm not sure how I would approach writing fic for this show, though; Peter's voice is so strong - he frequently breaks and talks to the audience, for example - that I feel like it would almost have to be first person to feel right, and I don't know how to make that work with a story about Danny/Luke hijinks.

Also, there's an episode with Captain America where he calls Coulson "Phil" and the poor guy almost gets the vapors. (It's clearly a separate continuity from the MCU, so the movie drama never happened.) You know you want to see that.

(I'd also settle for fic where Clint and Natasha drop in on Phil at "work" and make his life miserable.:)

Happy Yuletide reveal day! Just like the first time I did Yuletide, I went in resolving to write All The Treats and only wound up writing the one story (although at least this year I have the excuse of having signed up for two different exchanges as well.) X-factor was added to my sign-up at the last second when I realized it was eligible and I'm so glad I did, because my guys (and girls!)

(I had the revelation writing this that one of the reasons I fell so hard for Dean/Cas was because they reminded me of Ric/Star, which I've literally been shipping since I was a teenager. I have a type.)

(A few really, and Dean/Cas overlaps more than one. Which explains a lot.)

Happy New Year!
misachan: (monkey hat)
This year I wrote and posted (in chronological order by posting date):

The List! )

Plus two DCSS fics that haven't been revealed yet (guess which!) and the Yuletide fic, also still anon.

Overall Thoughts: I'm kind of pleased there was only one month were I didn't post some kind of fic (March.)

Looking back, did you write more fic than you thought you would this year, less, or about what you'd predicted? Okay, I checked the AO3 stats and it's saying I wrote over 300K this year, which has to be a glitch. Right? Lord.

What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January? Obviously I didn't see Avengers coming or Clint/Coulson/Natasha becoming the OT3 Of My Heart.:)

What's your own favorite story of the year? Not the most popular, but the one that makes you happiest? Man. Um. I was really happy for the excuse to write Dean/Cas/Lisa again, and AUing SPN with Flight Of The Navigator was fun. And writing crossovers is always a blast.

Did you take any writing risks this year? What did you learn from them? Don't Ever Look Back was my first ever crack at High School AU and I don't think I messed it up that badly (although apparently AUing the canon plot the way I did is apparently an unusual approach? I don't know.)

My best story of this year: Man. I'm bad at this question. I'm happy with how all the Big Bang fics came out, and I think Temporary Flesh And Bone came out pretty well. And Where Your Love Begins came out almost exactly the way it was in my head and I think the POV and ambiguity worked decently well. And I'm happy with how Contingencies came out, too.

My most popular story of this year: By AO3 hits: Don't Ever Look Back. By AO3 kudos: Guide You Home. By LJ comments: probably Exit Wounds.

Story of mine most under-appreciated by the universe, in my opinion: I thought What Stays And What Fades Away would have caught fire a little more, but I love secret angels more than most of the fandom. (Still writing more angel!Clint, though.:)

Most fun story to write: Teenage!Dean is actually really fun, so both The Second Hand Unwinds and Don't Ever Look Back were fun. And I love writing Lisa POV. And Nick abusing his staff via memos!

Story with the single sexiest moment: Geez. I dunno. The hooker RP in Let Me Show You How It's Done, maybe.

Most "Holy crap, that's wrong, even for you" story: Where Your Love Begins. I mean, it's not even close this year.:)

Story that shifted my own perceptions of the characters: I don't know it there's one particular fic. AU is always good for this, because you really have to strip the characters down to core traits to make it work.

Hardest story to write: Oh man, I was typing blood by the end of And A Star To Steer Her By. Sam POV! River! A fusion! Oy. I think it came out pretty well, but that was hard.

Biggest Disappointment: Flaking out of [livejournal.com profile] deancasbigbang. Absolutely. And I didn't get the Claire/Ben future fic I'd planned done, mostly because I'm reworking it to be based out of S7 instead of S6. And it really bummed me out to not do the past round of [livejournal.com profile] jimmybigbang. And the whole thing with [livejournal.com profile] avengers_xbb. Bah.

Biggest Surprise: Oh, Avengers. When I walked out of the movie I figured it would be one of those fandoms where I mostly just read fic but didn't write. Ahahahaha. Ha.

Favorite Opening Line(s): Clint had always figured his going crazy someday was inevitable.

Favorite Closing Line(s): He knows Dean would never hurt him.

Top Scenes from Anywhere You Would Choose to Have Illustrated: All of them. (I can't choose. Art for my stories makes me too squeeful.)

Story I haven't yet written, but intend to: The Exit Wounds sequel (planned for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang, since clearly I need a deadline to get anything done. The carpenter!AU I'd wanted to write for [livejournal.com profile] deancasbigbang (planned for this year's.) More Jimmy and general Novak awesome. And some more how-Clint-joined-SHIELD fic (I have two outlined out.)

Fic-writing goals for 2013: Post at least one fic each month. Write every day. Don't drop out of any challenges. *fist bump*

Man, I started to do the Year End Writing meme and I am just not up to all that masterpost wrangling and linking. Tomorrow!

So let's have the TV Meme instead:

Which TV shows did you start watching in 2012?

Once Upon A Time and The Walking Dead. (Sort of? I watched random first season episodes for both only really got into them in their second seasons.) Oh, and Ultimate Spider-Man! ETA: I COMPLETELY FORGOT ABOUT ARROW! ♥Arrow!♥

Which TV shows did you let go of in 2012?

Dexter. (Deb, what have they done to you?)

Which TV shows did you mean to get into but didn't in 2012? Why?

Elementary. I really liked the first episode but it's on a busy night and now I'm too behind. It was me show, not you! I'll catch up with you after the season.

Which TV shows do you intend on checking out in 2013?

It's become increasingly obvious to me that I need to get into Person Of Interest with all possible speed. It looks like it hits so many of my narrative kinks that I don't know what's been wrong with me all this time (specifically a lot of the ones Clint/Coulson also hit for me.) And ♥ Michael Emerson! ♥ (On a PoI note, have you read this story from Yuletide? Holy cats, so good. SO GOOD!)

And I should probably get around to watching Teen Wolf at some point or [livejournal.com profile] morganoconner might show up at my house.:)

Which TV show impressed you least in 2012?

Um. I dunno? I'm pretty happy with the ones I picked up. Oh, Suits! (sorry, Suits fans. I just can't. I keep trying to watch and all I can think about is the lives that will be ruined if/when the secret comes out.)

Which TV show did you enjoy the most in 2012?

Doctor Who, SPN, Once Upon A Time (so much better the second season!), Walking Dead (♥Daryl!♥)


Dec. 27th, 2012 01:13 am
misachan: (yuletide kitten)
This year was an embarrassment of riches - I got two fics in the main collection (I went out on the pinch hit list, but I know I had a gift fic uploaded that earlier that day before I hit the list, so I'm wondering if those two were my original writer and my pinch hitter) and a treat in the Madness collection. All three were Into The Woods fics, which surprised me - I knew getting a Warriors Of Virtue fic was kind of a pipe dream, since that's very much a No One But Me fandom, but if I were going to pick one of my requested fandoms to win I would have put money on Tombstone. But it was an awesome surprise, because while I've read Tombstone fic I there's so little Into The Woods to be found.

And now there's three more!

the rope you began with (was never that straight): For all of her happiness, part of Cinderella is afraid of being stuck in a small story with the same few people for the rest of her life.

Absolutely fantastic Cinderella voice and it really feels like the original/DVD cast, my preferred one (especially Red!) The fairy tale cameos are to die for.

Beyond Ever After: It may not have been the happily ever they once imagined, but that didn't mean they couldn't try.

A very sweet, aching coda, this time from the Baker's POV.

Ever After: All is mended, and it's not just for today.

Just the summary made me smile. A quick snapshot of the Baker, Cinderella, Red and Jack pulling together after everything. I adored the description of their cottage.


Now assorted recs! I feel like I haven't even started digging through the archive (there are ten Brave fics, guys! TEN! And a 38K B5 fic!) so here's just a handful that completely knocked me over with awesome.

Bridges Unburnt: Faiza sets out on her own. (Captain Britain & MI:13)

♥FAIZA!♥ An absolutely perfect character study of Faiza and her awesome.

It's a love story for the new age: This is how the story goes:
“Marry me,” he says.
“Are you serious?” she replies. (Gargoyles)

♥FOX!♥ ♥FOX/XANATOS♥ (and the best part, hints of Fox/Xanatos/Owen!) This Fox is every bit as sharp-edged and messy and wild as she is in canon and her relationship with Xanatos hits every right note. It's like they all walked right off the show and into my computer.

Prisoner's Dilemma: AU: Set in a world where Miaka and Yui never appeared to fulfill their destinies as priestesses, Kutou and Kounan are locked in a seemingly endless war. Peace has begun to seem like an impossibility when the Emperor of Kounan is faced with a difficult choice that could spare his people. (Fushigi Yuugi)

Guys, I don't care if you've even ever heard of Fushigi Yuugi, read this anyway. An absolutely gorgeous AU (one that in a lot of ways has the potential to be a lot kinder and more hopeful to Nakago and Hotohori than canon ever could be.) I wish there could be books and books of this verse to see what happens next.

A Daring Escape: Carrier pigeons are very useful when planning an escape from a madman’s lair of doom. (Jonathon Coulton's "Skullcrusher Mountain")

Smartly drawn OCs and hilariously on point details. (the mentioning of a "rescuing-a-kidnapped-person discount" was my favorite.)

Go! Read!
