Writers - Artists - Betas - Brainstorming - FAQ - Guidelines



Writer sign ups close in one week. Don't miss out! Pimp to the heavens! Please? Pretty, pretty please?

(If it's any extra motivation, my birthday is also in one week, and signing up to write/art/beta would be the most awesome possible present. )

My inability to get anything productive done today is at an all time high.

I will answer the next five questions I'm asked.

If you'd like a card please comment with your info! (All comments are screened.)

misachan: (chibi dean/cas)
Hello all! Today is my 9th LJversary and that means it's TIME FOR A PARTY! (inspired by [livejournal.com profile] oddishly's comment meme) *throws confetti* Thank you all so much for brightening my days and being part of my life for all these years.



RescueMe




(banner by [livejournal.com profile] miya_tenaka. Isn't it gorgeous?)

Since H/C and rescue!fic are two of my favorite things in the world, the party theme is prompts, fic, art and other general loveliness involving characters saving each other, patching up their hurts, holding bedside vigils (I do love bedside vigils!) and blurting out ill-timed emotional declarations after the latest near miss, any characters, any fandoms, crossovers always welcome. Make the prompts and fills as angsty or fluffy as you like - have someone rescue Clint from a pile of puppies for all I care. As long as someone's hurts are being comforted or someone's getting rescued it's all good.

Some quick rules!

    1) Have all the fun and be excellent to each other.

    2) Anon commenting is on and all fanworks are welcome, fic, art, picspams, recs, anything and everything. Multiple fills are awesome! All fandoms can come to play.

    3) All prompts and fills should involve either some kind of hurt/comfort or rescuing (or both!) This is a really broad catagory, so everything from hugs to kind words to vigils to full on storming the gates of Hell is welcome. (Clint really needs rescuing from those puppies!) Angst, fluff and everything in between, bring it all on.

    4) Make sure to note the fandoms, characters and pairings of fills/prompts and use any required warnings. And spoiler cut when appropriate!


I'll be making an index of fills and sticky posting this so the party can go on until the next LJversary.:)

HAVE FUN, EVERYONE! Thank you for coming to my party! (and please pimp so everyone can come!)

FILLS: Castiel wasn't trying to keep Dean safe. He really was ambushed by Leviathans when they first got in Purgatory, and now he's being held captive. He hears Dean pray to him every night. - Unanswered Prayers, SPN, Dean/Cas, R by [livejournal.com profile] balder12
misachan: (BAMFCas)
I am super blocked, so let's try this: (from the always brilliant [livejournal.com profile] etherati

1) Pick a fic I've written.
2) Give me a twist - a different AU, different order of events, genderswap, character swap, whatever. More than one is okay as long as it's manageable!
3) Pick a scene or else leave it up to me and I'll pick one.

And I will rewrite a scene from that fic for you, using the requested twist.


This will either be awesome or a complete disaster. No middle ground!
misachan: (yuletide kitten)
So this morning I'm all set to leave, literally have him hand on the doorknob when I hear Lexi chirp behind me (she chirps. It's a thing.) I turn around just in time to see her pounce an enormous freaking centipede, knocking her water bowl over in the process because she is a creature of unparalleled stealth and grace. I managed to step on the hideous thing (it was on my boot, ew, ew, ew) but by the time I shooed her away and cleaned up the water and refilled the bowl I'd blown a good 10-15 minutes.

End result? Bug eliminated, but the delay made me literally two minutes late clocking in. So I guess you win this round, nature.

***

So I think I know what I'm nominating for Yuletide this year! (I sat out last year, I'd signed up for Too Many Things, but I had a lot of Yuletide Envy come reveal time.) Here's what I wrote in the brainstorming post:

Tombstone
Characters: Doc, Wyatt, Morgan, Virgil (easiest picks ever.:)
I think Tombstone is fairly well known, just not well ficced and it's one of my very favorite things.

Into The Woods
Characters: The Baker, Cinderella, Jack, Red
This is the Sondheim musical and it's both streaming on Netflix and on DVD (with a fantabulous cast.) Post musical-fic, with second chances at love and found families and picking up the pieces, please. (I wish!)

Warriors of Virtue
Characters: Komodo, Grillo, ???? (any of the Roos, really)
WoV is a late-90's kid's martial arts flick about a boy named Ryan who takes a dare trying to impress the popular kids and winds up falling into a magical world where he befriends a group of kangaroo-people martial artists who embody the elements of fire, wood, metal, earth and water. As you do.

But let's look past the plot, such as it is; I'm a huge sucker for Crazy Overlord/Loyal Lieutenant dynamics and this movie might as well have been made for me. The villains really do make the movie and even them aside, the sets and costumes are gorgeous and the world itself is interesting. This is far from the greatest movie ever made but I love it with ever beat of my sad fangirl heart and just want to see any fic for it.

It's also currently complete on youtube. Please watch! (and I'd like to point you all to around 48:00, where there's handholding and Overlord asking Lieutenant if his Evil robes are flattering. I am not even kidding.)



Anyone else doing Yuletide? Whatcha nominating? Whatcha offering? *chinhands*

(BTW, please, please someone nominate Left 4 Dead 2 and Human Target. I was planning to offer those but no one's even mentioned them yet!)

As was probably inevitable, last night after game I decided to take a "quick nap" that lasted five hours, so the promptfest train will start rolling again tomorrow.

Which brings me to my point: is there anyone who can do a quick beta on a fic if I throw it at them tonight? [livejournal.com profile] aerilex is a flawless human and shouldn't have to beta read her own fic.

*mwah*

*SIGH*

I am morose and meloncholy over not being able to finish my fic by the DCBB deadline (I will still finish! I just could not unsnarl the plot in time, and intend to cheerlead the hell out of all of you who did make it!) Also, I was peer pressured into signing up for [livejournal.com profile] salt_burn_porn, which now in the cold light of day seems like a fit of terrifying madness.

So I propse a solution! As a warm up for SBP, "tag" me with a prompt and I will attempt to porn it up over the weekend. If it's the style of what'll be looking at in SBP, all the better!

(I make no promises as to pairing. Or to quality.:)

ETA: Okay, that's seven prompts, officially making this a week long event (God help me.) Prompts closed!
misachan: (Tony/Rhodey)
(That is one alliterative header.)

So earlier today I rage tweeted my timeline about...

Well here, I'll reproduce it:

@Gambling4Kitten: If I find one more thing claiming Tony never had a true friend before joining the Avengers my brain will leak out of my ears. #hatedtropes

I hate this trope. Haaaaaaaate it. It was around before Avengers came out but I keep finding stories where joining the Avengers and meeting Steve or Bruce taught Tony the power of friendship and let him finally open up to another human being and then I have to close my laptop before I actually bang my head against the keyboard. How can you watch Iron Man 1&2 and come away with that.?! Even putting Pepper aside, who also seems to be forgotten half the time, Rhodey loves the hell out of Tony Stark (and I don't necessarily mean in a shipping way, either.) Look at that scene in the first movie on the jet, where Tony's gotten Rhodey drunk and he's rambling on about how Tony's better than all this and he wants Tony to find a higher meaning for his life! The man is not a lost puppy who never knew a kind word before hearing the word Avengers, okay?

(Hilariously, this trope actually works with everyone except Tony and Steve (although no one seems to erase Bucky from Steve's backstory the way they do Rhodey from Tony's) - Bruce has been on the run and isolated since becoming the Hulk, and Clint and Natasha's lives clearly weren't rainbows and puppy kisses before joining SHIELD.)

Anyway, last night I stumbled over someone defending this trope, saying that since Rhodey's (and Pepper until the end of IM2, which is another level of wha?) job is handling Tony it means that he was never really Tony's friend. And that in fact, Tony acting like an ass toward him is proof Tony never really thought of him as a friend. And then my brain spun around in my head and I had to recuse myself from the internet for a while.

So! I am begging all of you lovely people for recs. I don't care about ships - ship Tony with Rhodey, Steve, Bruce, whatever. Hell, put him Jarvis, which with LMDs can totally be a thing. Just make it Avengers-era fic that acknowledges that Tony had important, semi-functional adult relationships before encountering Bruce's hot ass (or Steve's abs. Whatev.)

Please?

I'm terrible at making icons. If it needs more technical prowess than cropping and throwing on a filter it's completely beyond me, so if any of you wonderful people can tell me where I might beg or borrow icons of the following I would be ridiculously grateful:

1) Jaqen H'ghar

Not that I don't love my Dany icon, but a man should have an icon, shouldn't he?

2) A solid Clint/Coulson/Natasha icon. (not necessarily shippy, but definitely all three of them together.)

They are the OT3 of my heart, you guys. It's been forever since a ship ran me over like this (believe it or not, Dean/Cas was a much slower burn.) And not to say I don't love Clint/Coulson on its own, because I do very very much (and Clint/Nat, too!) but the three of them together just sings. Clint and Nat need each other because they see the darkness in each other and understand it, and they need Phil because he sees the darkness in them, doesn't understand it, and loves them anyway. The three of them together just make me all kinds of the happy.

***

Let's visit the WiP list (ie, fics I am currently writing/plotting/have open files for)

1) On The Head Of A Pin AU where Anna's just a little too late and things spiral down from there. (this is my [livejournal.com profile] dc_dystopia fic.)

2) Jimmy and Jo in the afterlife dealing with the Fates. (my gen mini bang fic)

3) AU fic where Dean is a carpenter making a special order for a very demanding client. (my [livejournal.com profile] deancasbigbang. I've rambled about this one before.)

4) Someone slips up and SHIELD Internal Affairs hears whispers that Coulson is sleeping with his agents, forcing Clint and Nat to figure out what to do.

Hello all!

 

I know I owe meme responses! Most of the past week has been consumed with trying to finish a fic that ballooned 3K longer than I thought it would be and frankly kicked my butt, but it's in the wise custody of [livejournal.com profile] aerilex and she'll let me know whether there's anything worth salvaging or if the whole thing should be set on fire. ("Kill it with fire" is generally my knee-jerk response the first time I reread something just finished. I'm sure some of you can empathize.) Either way, there will definitely be fic Saturday.

 

On a slightly related note but not really, my sister is celebrating becoming a Master of Science (that is legit what is printed on her diploma) by declaring JuNoWriMo (since she was knee-deep in her thesis last November and couldn't participate then) and I'm trying it with her, since I want to be a supportive big sister and I'm signed up for All The Challenges OMG. I've never managed to make it to 50K any of the previous times I've attempted and there's a very good chance I'll end the month an incoherent wreck. Just as a warning.

 

(On an actually related note, it's almost the time for me to be harassing a couple of you with carpentry questions. Please still be friends with me when the month is over.)

[livejournal.com profile] morganoconner is trying to get me to sign up for [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang. Tell her to stop and that she's a giant meanie. (And then give her love for her BIRTHDAY SATURDAY!)

 


misachan: (Scandal)
While we're on the subject of fics someone should write for me, I really really want a story where Castiel has enough of Samuel's nonsense and tosses him into a future where his scheme works perfectly and he gets exactly what he wants --- and then he gets to see just how that would play out. (Because Cas is a Very Busy Angel with too many balls in the air and figures getting one distraction out of Dean's hair means one out of his, too.) Especially if said horrible future involves a badass, royally pissed off Mary Winchester.

So, yeah. That.

***

I stumbled over some exceptionally stupid anti-vaccination nonsense (the anti-vax movement is something I find just blood-boilingly offensive. If you ever want to see me completely blow my top in public, that's one of the ways to do it.) Now I'm all cranky.

So lets have a meme! (ganked from [livejournal.com profile] penknife)

1. Pick a pairing or a character
2. Ask me my particular head!canon regarding something about them
3. Post to your journal to share your own head!canon!
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: (Agent Coulson: Badass)
These are Avengers stories you all should write for me!

* Bruce and Tony are totally happy being buds doing SCIENCE! together - except it's becoming obvious that Hulk has a serious crush on Mr. Stark (keeping an extra close eye on him during fights, freaking when he gets hurt, etc.) Eventually they have to admit the inevitable and Pepper can be all, "Finally, you two. I'll have a bigger bed delivered."

* Rhodey gets shot down over a country the US isn't supposed to be flying over and when Tony gets word there's no rescue in progress he goes "Yeah, not good with that" and goes himself. (Bruce can come too! Bring the team! I just want fic that remembers Tony already had a best friend before meeting Steve and Bruce. *grumpy Tony/Rhodey shipper*)

* Now that Life Model Decoys are movie canon, Bruce and Tony are fooling around with one in the lab and accidentally download Jarvis into it, making him kind of sort of human. Cue them helping him figure out all these weird human things and feelings.

* Coulson/Clint/Natasha first times (first time all together, anyway). ALL the first times.

* Clint getting caught in a cave in and Coulson talking him through the claustrophobic panic attack. Then Clint repaying him.:)


* Clint falling in love with Coulson's voice before ever actually seeing him. <--- personal canon.


My birthday is in a little over a month. Just, y'know. Mentioning. Ahem.:) *whistles casually*

So I discovered today that my email had decided all on its own to broaden its definition of spam from attempts to hook me up with sexy Asian singles to include all sorts of other things, like a bunch of AO3 notifications and TWO emails from my [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang artist (who is awesome and lovely and now probably thinks I'm a total flake.) *facepalm* Oh technology, how do you work?

Hey guys! Check this out!

SPN Gen Big Bang

I'm flirting with the idea of doing the minibang part of this, because hey, it's just 5K but I'm realizing I'm really kind of wretched at gen, or at least coming up with ideas for gen. I dunno. Prompt me?

Happy Finale Day! Love your spoiler cuts and try to not burn down the internet, okay?
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: (starbuck)
Dear Self,

It is a first draft. It does not have to be perfect. It just has to be words.

Now stop it.

No love,

Changing topics, I've decided to finally put my very neglected dreamwidth account to use as a back up fic journal, just in case LJ succumbs to Skynet/is taken over by zombies/falls into the sun/what have you.

So a question to all of you already DW fluent! What are the good fic comms over there? Where should I be crossposting?
misachan: (sad cas)
Assuming I survive this big bang cycle - I'm booked solid for long!fic up through DCBB, since if I don't write that Carpenter!Dean AU I think some of you might actually come to my house and glare at me - I'm thinking about doing a follow up to Exit Wounds. Aside from comment fic I've never written a proper follow up to a story and I want to try it.

Is this a good idea? Would people still care by then? Is there something else I should be doing instead for sequelbigbang (if such a thing existed)?

*frets*
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*
