I just had the most stupendously evil idea for Prompt I Cannot Claim. It sets up the timeline and establishes who's pulling the strings and I now know both the final scene and the final line.

If someone jumps on this prompt before I'm allowed to grab it I may cry real tears.

(Must write faster.)

(As an aside, there should be more porn!prompt fics this weekend! I've just been swallowed whole by [livejournal.com profile] dc_dystopia).

(Must Write Faster.)
misachan: (sad cas)
I've spent most of the morning plot bunnied hard from a prompt I can't claim (not to mention with a plot more involved than anything I really have time to write at the moment.)

Distract me, internets! (Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] musesfool)

Pick a number from the list and I'll answer it in the comments.

1 - Your current OTP
2 - A pairing you initially didn't consider but someone changed your mind
3 - A pairing you have never liked and probably never will
4 - A pairing you wish you liked but just can’t
5 - Have you added anything stupid/cracky/hilarious to your fandom, if so, what?
6 - What’s the longest you’ve ever been in a fandom
7 - Do you remember your first OTP, if so who was in it
8 - Do you prefer characters from real action series or anime series
9 - Has the internet caused you to stop liking any fandoms, if so, which and why
10 - Name a fandom you didn't care/think about until you saw it all over tumblr/your social network sites
11 - How do you feel about the other people in your current fandom
12 - Your favorite fanartist/author gives you one request, what do you ask for
13 - Your favorite fanart or fanartist
14 - Your favorite fanfiction or fanauthor
15 - Choose a song at random, which OTP does it remind you of
16 - Invent a random AU for any fandom (we always need more ideas)
17 - A ship you’ve abandoned and why
18 - A pairing you ship that you don’t think anyone else ships
19 - Show us an example of your personal headcanon
20 - Do you remember what your first fanwork was?
21 - Self-rec: What's your favorite fanwork you've created?
22 - Are you one of those fans who can’t watch anything without shipping
23 - 5 favorite characters from 5 different fandoms
24 - 3 OTPs from 3 different fandoms
25 - A fandom you’re in but have no ships from
26 - Just ramble about something fan-related, go go go

[livejournal.com profile] dc_dystopia invites you to join us for our first Comment Fic & Art Exchange Meme! Operating on the simple concept of "leave a prompt, claim a prompt", we are open to all forms of dark or angsty Dean/Cas and Jensen/Misha prompts - come join us for some nightmarish fun!


My prompt there is sad and lonely! Please go and give it some company, especially since I can't post another without claiming one of yours!

***

On a related note, I not only know exactly what I'm writing for the next [livejournal.com profile] dc_dystopia round, but I have a summary. This has never, ever happened.

*goes back to writing*
misachan: (Clint)
I want a story about Clint and Bullseye sniper dueling across Manhattan, specifically the Crazy!Irish!Bullseye from the Ben Affleck Daredevil movie, but I don't want to have to watch it again to write it myself. Anyone else want to jump on that grenade?

Because really, that needs to happen. Especially with movieverse all but saying that Clint used to be an assassin the two of them are such mirrors of each other, good vs evil, bow vs rifle, the two best marksmen in the world trying to land that perfect shot to take the other down. Hell, Clint probably ran with Bullseye in his previous life, adding that little personal oomph to things: that was him, once upon a time. Might still be him, if a couple of decisions had gone the other way.

And of course Bullseye gets to mix business with pleasure because that can't really be Barton gone soft, can it? And if Barton really does think he's better than his old running buddy Lester now, well, Bullseye can show him how wrong he is.

And it's so versatile! Set it post-movie and Bullseye can be hired by an old employer who's spotted Hawkeye on TV and sees a chance to get a little revenge, or even someone who lost a loved one to Loki's rampage, doesn't care (or know) Clint was mind controlled and is rich enough to hire Bullseye to make him pay for Loki's sins.

Or set it pre-canon and have AIM or whoever decide to strike back against SHIELD by assassinating key personnel and when Bullseye gets hired to take out Coulson (and probably Fury too, but first things first) he decides to have some fun with the assignment, placing the shot so it's not immediately lethal - if Clint wants to save him he has to chase Bullseye and win. If Bullseye wins, he goes back and finishes the job, same if Clint cheats and tries to call in SHIELD reinforcements. They used to be evenly matched - Bullseye wants to see if Clint can still take him now that he's decided to be all good. And of course if Clint takes too long....

(Added bonus would be Nat trying to keep Coulson alive while they're waiting to see if Clint can win, especially if it's early-ish in her SHIELD tenure and even she's not sure where her loyalties lie. Because OT3 of my heart.)

So yeah. Someone should do that.
misachan: (Conviction)
So Marvel's released some info on the the short that'll be bundled on the Avengers DVD, and while to my sadness it won't feature Agent Coulson being awesome like previous shorts it will apparently reveal that War is on SHIELD's payroll. Which makes a certain amount of sense, if you think about it - where else would a slumming Horseman hide out while waiting for the next Apocalypse?

(This does put a different spin on the whole "Thanos is in love with Death" thing, though.)

***

I was SO HAPPY today when I realized that a fic set in the "Terrible Life"-verse would totally work for my hypnosis/mind control square. I now have a plan of attack for that whole double line and will be happy to ramble on in the comments to anyone interested.:)

***

Back to finding pianos for Dean to drape Cas all over. Research is a trial sometimes, guys.:)
misachan: (Jo)
About how old do we think Jo is supposed to be by "Abandon All Hope?" I realized today I've been mentally slotting her way too young (I basically did some mental math and went "No, self, you're being ridiculous.") Younger than Sam, I know, but Sam is around 26 by then so that's not too helpful. And I can't use actor age because Alona Tal is clearly playing younger.

***

I (finally!) got my tax return today! *confetti* I'm letting myself have $25 to inject into my kindle but have to allocate the rest toward bills/upcoming holidays. Boo. I tire of this adulthood thing.
misachan: (BAMFCas)
So I went and signed up for the [livejournal.com profile] spn_gen_bigbang (minibang version) after all because willpower, it's something I do not have. It's wee-chesters with a TFW twist - a monster that attacked Sam and Dean when they were children, one that can only be perceived and defeated by children, comes for them again in their dreams. Hopefully I can stretch a nightmare to 5K.

***

So, now with that done, let's have another round of Overcommitment Theater!

[livejournal.com profile] sncross_bigbang
Final draft due date: May 25th
Status: Back from beta, working through edits.

[livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang
Posting date: July 10th
Status: In the final stages of polishing to make it ready to send to betareading.

[livejournal.com profile] deancasbigbang
Due date: August 15th
Status: Still trying to figure out what happens between two plot points in the last act. Real work begins June 1st. (whooo!)

[livejournal.com profile] dc_dystopia
Due date: June 23rd
Status: Fic is started and plotted out. Hopeful the idea has 5K in it, because I'm terrible at judging that kind of thing.

Avengers/SPN Crossover
Posting Date: June 2nd (for Reasons!:)
Status: About 2K in, plotted out. Coulson Is Unhappy.:)

[livejournal.com profile] spn_gen_bigbang
Due date: July 9th
Status: Idea is had?
misachan: (Agent Coulson: Badass)
So there I was, innocently checking my twitter feed when this happened:

@morganoconner: I need fic where Clint makes a deal with a crossroads demon. Someone should write this right now. *eyes feed*

Then I stupidly, stupidly reply:

@Gambling4Kitten: @morganocconner: Yeeees. Clint can't deal with the guilt over what went down that he decided that's the way to fix it. (yes, my grammar is always that awesome.)

@morganoconner: @Gambling4Kitten: YES PLEASE OMG NEED THIS IN MY LIFE. *____*

@Gambling4Kitten: @morganoconner: Because with everything he's done in his life he's going to hell anyway. His fault good people died. Red in his ledger.

@morganoconner: @Gambling4Kitten: YES. YESYESYESYESYES OMG EXACTLY. ksrjgskfgskugfskdjhgskdufgshdj


So now I have 750 words of crossover and have no idea where I'm going with this, except that it'll probably require me researching Asgardians. BECAUSE I DIDN'T JUST SIGN UP FOR A CHALLENGE OR ANYTHING. And if needs to be done by June 2nd because REASONS.:)

(Although this probably answers the question of whether I'll claim another dystopia piece.:)
misachan: (Agent Coulson: Badass)
Okay, if I can JUST GET THROUGH THE REST OF TODAY there will be:

1) AVENGERS! (Midnight showing, already have my ticket.)

2) Posting my [livejournal.com profile] super_disney fic! (I've been sitting on and poking this story since FEBRUARY. That people are actually going to read it after all this time is frankly kind of surreal and terrfying.)

3) [livejournal.com profile] dc_dystopia art previews tomorrow! (And claims Saturday!)

4) Three day weekend!

*watches clock*

AVENGERS!

ETA: Ooh. OOH. I know which one I want for Dystopia. (Art preview is up!) Mwahaha.
misachan: (headdesk)
Dear Brain,

It is completely counterproductive to come up with [livejournal.com profile] dc_dystopia ideas NOW. That is not how Reverse Bangs work. Knock it off.

No love (as usual),
Me

Already I've had to evade the icy hand of death twice today, once when a woman just completely cut around me to make an illegal turn (only to wind up in front of me at the same red light, because of course), and then later when I managed to almost choke myself to death on water.

*shakes fist* Your move, Grim Destroyer!

***

*refreshes [livejournal.com profile] sncross_bigbang looking for the draft submission post.*

*sighs*

*refreshes*
misachan: (headdesk)
Aw man, I just got plot bunnied hard by a prompt at [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic, but the story in my brain is absolutely not comment fic and I don't have time to write it because I'm signed up for All The Thiiiiiiings.

Why do I look at things? I know my brain!

ETA: Does anyone know of a challenge/bang/fest/thing I can write this for? Preferably with a summerish date, since my March/April is full up with big bangs? *big eyes*
misachan: (monkey hat)
Okay, so it's not quite that dramatic. What happened was Monday night while I was on my way home I got a call from one of my friends who'd dropped by early to prep for game that went like this: "So...yeah, just wanted to give you a heads up, your upstairs neighbor's pipe burst right over your kitchen and there's a lot of water. I mean, it's a lake." Then I hear banging and shouting and my neighbor apologizing, and my friend telling him, "No, seriously, you need to go get a tetanus shot." Then he came back on the line and said, "So, yeah, you should pick up some paper towels." I also heard the words "starting to look like Atlantis in here."

I said, "It sounds like I should pick up a mop." (I only had a swiffer mop, not a omg-all-the-water mop.)

"Yeah, that sound like a good idea. Okay, we're gonna go shut off the water now."

So I ran back to CVS and picked up a mop and a flashlight (water was running right over the light so no one wanted to turn it on) and All The Paper Towels. And fortunately by the time I got home the water had mostly stopped and while the floor was wet, it wasn't Atlantis wet and it was isolated to just the one room.

Here's the thing: the only reason I got the call in the first place was because I'd stopped at CVS to buy glue to attempt a last minute GISHWHES item. Otherwise I would have been on the highway and I don't answer my phone when I'm driving. Only my desire to build the Washington Monument out of gummi bears kept me from walking unprepared into a flooded kitchen with no way to clean it up! Thank you, Misha!

(as a side note, the clean-up meant I did not actually have time to construct said tower. This leaves me with two packages of gummi bears to dispose of. I know, you're asking however will I cope?:)

So that was fun. I was just so happy when the water got turned back on. And today we had to do ALLLLL the dishes because disgusting yellow rust water got into that cabinet and all over everything.

Ugh. I am tired of this whole adulthood thing.

***

I got my [livejournal.com profile] deancas_xmas confirmation, so I know they have it and that's done and taken care of. \o/ I think it's pretty blindly obvious it's mine, but it would be to me, after all.:)

***

There should be fic sometime tomorrow. Also, it is entirely [livejournal.com profile] morganoconner's fault.

Okay, not entirely. But mostly.:)

***

My brain has been plotting out a high school AU. I don't want it to. Please tell it to stop.
misachan: (2014)
I had a sort of-productive weekend! I wrote two fics, one I just posted a little bit ago: The Beginning Is Always Before Us, one of my semi-annual attempts to be literary.:) The prompt was an absolutely gorgeous Pablo Neruda poem, and obviously I don't come anywhere near matching that I'm rather pleased with it. I've always liked playing with the idea that Cas remade Dean, that he knows him down to his bones. And I think it's the first time I've written Dean's POV without him swearing in the narration. \o/

The other fic I'll post in a couple days; it's a Uriel-POV-on-S4 fic and yes, I know that means maybe two people will care.:) (and one of those two beta read it!) I just really love that enormous SOB.

Needless to say, neither of those were what I was supposed to be writing this weekend. I have to make up for lost time now, especially since the time is rapidly approaching when I have to buckle down on my [livejournal.com profile] jimmybigbang.

Oh, and I submitted my fic for [livejournal.com profile] deancas_xmas! *confetti* And I actually managed to submit an item for Gishwhes, proving that I'm not a useless drain on my team! (I'm hoping to get one more in under the deadline. I just need better glue. Gummy bears are apparently a much more difficult art medium than I'd thought.:)

How went everyone else's weekend?
misachan: (fire crow)
I am severely unamused that the week is almost over. How did that happen? Why can't I fall into an unattended money bin so I can be a full time lady of leisure?

Anyway, tomorrow we're heading out to Plymouth Rock and going aboard the Mayflower, weather permitting. I will attempt to take pictures. Also, earlier I caught a little bit of the Crow and that relieved some of my end-of-vacation despair. (It probably says ~things~ about me that my two biggest comfort movies are The Crow and Watchmen.) If I didn't already know what I was doing for [livejournal.com profile] jimmybigbang I would be tempted by the idea of an everything goes wrong 4.20 AU where Castiel never comes back from Heaven, Jimmy, Amelia and Claire all die and then Jimmy comes back with Crow powers and just starts tearing things up.

***

Progress report!

1) [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang: back from beta (thanks, [livejournal.com profile] electricskeptic, you're awesome!) and guys, I can't wait until Monday so you can see the art I have in my inbox. Dreading writing a summary.

2) [livejournal.com profile] deancas_xmas: off to [livejournal.com profile] aerilex's capable hands, so by tomorrow I should know whether I should just scrap that idea and try again. *sigh*

3) [livejournal.com profile] spn_in_space: didn't get as much done as I wanted this week, but I managed to poke at it. I still need to figure out what happens between the major THING and the end, because otherwise I'm just being needlessly mean to Cas. And in fairness, I'm normally pretty mean to him, but I like to think I'm not needlessly mean.

How did the week go for the rest of you? How are all of your projects coming along?
misachan: (Bela)
God help me, I love writing 5.04!Cas.

***

I got into a little discussion about Bela in [livejournal.com profile] seanan_mcguire's LJ and all these seasons later I'm still perplexed by the hatred so much of SPN fandom has for her. I loved that girl. Loved her. If I'd gotten my second choice for [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang she was going to be a major character. (part of the plot involved Claire meeting Bela in hell and the two of them wrecking the place.:)

I wish there was some kind of...I don't know, Dream's Library challenge for for [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang where people would post snippets of the stories they would have written if they'd gotten their second or third choices (or first choices, as happened in a lot of cases.) I really dig the ideas I had for my second and third choices and I'm always fascinated how two people can look at the some prompt and come up with entirely different stories.

***

Must leave the house now! I have to trek over to Best Buy to see if I can trade in my faulty GPS for my trip. Pray for me, guys.

ETA: There is no reason why a trip to a mall that is literally five minutes away - by local roads! - should take three hours. None. Bah.
misachan: (Comedian)
Y'know what someone should write? A story where Sam and Dean are on a hunt in NYC and run into the Punisher --- or more likely Frank runs into them, because he recognizes them as his old war buddy John's boys and is curious about what brings them to town. Then they fight some kind of mutual enemy --- let's say demon mobsters --- so that we can go as long as possible before realizing just cracked up Frank really is.

And Spider-Man should factor in somehow, because he and Dean snarking at each other would be a thing of beauty.

You could even work in that whole "Frank's an assassin for Heaven" story arc everyone likes to pretend never happened! Poor Cas having to explain that bit of heavenly nonsense would be gold. (Or if it's set present season, maybe Cas recruits him again. That could be one of his regrettable things.)

I'm just saying. Someone should get on that.
misachan: (Default)
Oh. Oh, I do not suddenly want to write fic where Jack meets Claude. You hear that, brain? That is not what we want! We are writing other things!

I mean...I just...I don't even know where I would start! What would that even be? *flail*

(There's a Heroes/Torchwood crossover on [livejournal.com profile] heroes_fic with Nathan and Peter meeting Jack and Ianto, and it got me thinking about Jack on Heroes. You know what the most dangerous words in the English language are? "Oh, hey, you know what would be cool?")
