misachan: (Conviction)
This is my very favorite ficathon:


[community profile] intoabar


The concept is that you pick a character, any character, and then anywhere from 1-4 fandoms. The mods then use the magic of random dice rolls pick which character from one of those fandoms your first one will walk into a bar (or tavern or inn or Starbucks or whatever) and meet. It is genius. Sign ups end May 13th!

***

It's for a new OMGALLTHEDEADLINES post, because I can't keep dates straight otherwise:

[profile] crossbigbang: Rough drafts due June 3rd, 10K minimum.
[community profile] intoabar: Last posting day June 21st, 500 word minimum (ha!)
[community profile] deancasbigbang: Rough drafts due August 15th, 20K word minumum.

And I still have to write something for Kink Bingo amnesty if I want to grab a card this year. I should to check what the mini challenge is for this month.

(I still have NO FRACKING IDEA what I'm writing for DCBB. I'm seriously considering grabbing some of my WiPs and putting up a poll. Would anyone vote in that? That sounds pitiful, doesn't it? Sigh.)

Tomorrow is [profile] spn_j2_bigbang claims day! Hold me, internets!

BEARS!

misachan: (yuletide kitten)
Last week featured an out of town visit from the ex which turned into a "sleep on my couch for multiple nights" kind of visit (awkward city!) and a game session on Saturday that I expected to last 3 hours but wound up with people in my house past midnight, which DESTROYED my writing time.

Oh, and I had a momentary lapse of reason and picked up a DCSS pinch hit (which is done, which is where the rest of my weekend went.)

You know what you don't see mentioned there?

YULETIDE. FOUR DAYS.

OH GOD.

BEARS.

(I will get it done. Just, you know. BEARS. I haven't even had time to do more than glance at my DCSS gift fic. Writer, if you're stalking this post I'm not ignoring1 I've just been beset!)
misachan: (monkey hat)
Okay, so my DCSS story is safely in [livejournal.com profile] aerilex's capable hands and I'm taking a quick break from working on my [livejournal.com profile] cc_exchange fic, which God willing should be done tonight. I hope!

Once those two are out of the way I should finally be able to catch up on comments (so behind omg) and on fic, because there's been been some awesome fic posted lately from [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang, including the dragon AU and the sniper AU ones, both of which were on my list. (I still have the outline for the sniper!AU I put together while waiting for claims to open, but it would probably be bad form to write it now with an official story posted, especially one that looks so good.) And [livejournal.com profile] axilet finished my birthday fic, the 2014!Cas switch one! I've been using getting to read that as motivation to meet my exchange deadlines.

Soon, lovely fics! Soon I will be able to read you all!

***

The Christmas Card post is still open! If you'd like a card from me, just leave a comment!
misachan: (sad cas)
Things have been getting done! My second [livejournal.com profile] polybigbang fic (Avengers this time) should be safely in [livejournal.com profile] aerilex's capable hands now and in return I've received back my [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang, which I'll start editing once I hit post. (So much red ink, you guys. Pity my betas.) And my DCSS fic is plotted out so I'll start going to war with that tonight; in my brightest hopes and dreams I'm hoping I can get both that and my C/C exchange fic drafted by the time I go home this weekend, which drastically improves my chances of actually getting something together for [livejournal.com profile] dc_dystopia. Stuff!

Here's my upcoming posting dates, since God knows I can't keep anything straight unless I write it down:

Nov 19th: [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang
Nov 24th: [livejournal.com profile] polybigbang (Avengers)
Dec 4th: [livejournal.com profile] polybigbang (Supernatural)

So this is how that first week of Dec stands right now: Dec 3rd, DCSS due date. Dec 4th, polybigbang posting. Dec 5th, C/C exchange due date. Dec. 8th, dc dystopia drafts due. THAT IS A LOT, ALL! /O\

And Yuletide in there too, but that's not due until Dec. 22nd so pffff. I know what I'm writing, though, and I'm planning at least one treat. (Yuletide people! Don't forget to link your letters to the Dear Yuletide post! It's how treats happen!)
misachan: (more sonic)
Managed to get in my [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang draft in on time and without any power loss shenanigans! Victory! \o/ ([livejournal.com profile] ammo, if you want a look at a really rough draft and see this before I email you first, just give me the word!)

This means I have now met all of my October deadlines! Double victory! (Technically, I still have a couple of scenes to write for one of my [livejournal.com profile] polybigbangs, but I met the rough draft deadline.) Now of course come a whole new set of deadlines - three things due the first week of December! - but I have a little breathing room to finish the polybang and finish outline my [livejournal.com profile] dc_dystopia.

Frankenstorm wise, my batteries have been purchased and the air conditioners are removed and the garbage cans are all in the basement, so I'm decently prepared. I'll do the whole fill the tub thing tonight just in case but my area is usually pretty good when it comes to storms. I haven't flooded during past few and didn't lose power for more than a few minutes during Irene, so let's hope that string of good luck holds. *crosses fingers* (I'm always more worried about something landing on my car during storms than anything else.)

How is everyone? Hatches all battened? What the hell was wrong with the Jets today? And who out there is going to write me Digg/Ollie fic from the new Arrow show? :BIG EYES:
misachan: (Clint)
Stuff! I have been doing it!

1) Signed up for [livejournal.com profile] deancas_xmas!

2) Signed up for Yuletide!

3) Wrote my Yuletide letter!

4) Sent my Avengers [livejournal.com profile] polybigbang to my artist and emailed the artist for the SPN one!

5) Finished outlining for both [livejournal.com profile] avengers_xbb (I realized the story I'd been working on for that would be way too long to make the deadline. I'm still writing angel!Clint, just, um, shorter.:) I'm using the first story for one of the crossover big bangs later in the year.:) and [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang and put down some words for both. Words!

Now to put down some more, actually good words. *sigh*

***

I know we're all slammed this time of year but I really recommend anyone with a spare 5K fic in them to check out the current round of [livejournal.com profile] dc_dystopia. The theme is dark fairy tales and based on the fairy tales already claimed I'm really excited about the stories we're going to get. Don't miss out!
misachan: (headdesk)
So, I um...may have signed up for Round 3 of [livejournal.com profile] dc_dystopia. /o\ I blame how competitive I get with claims.

So it's time for a bookkeeping post, just so I have all the due dates for the holiday exchanges or what have you I've signed up for or will sign up for shortly rolling up in Nov/Dec nice and orderly and in once place.

[livejournal.com profile] cc_exchange: 1K minimum, due Dec. 5th
[livejournal.com profile] deancas_xmas: 1500 minimum, due Dec. 3rd
[livejournal.com profile] dc_dystopia: 5K minimum, due Dec. 8th
Yuletide: 1K minimum, due Dec 22nd

It'll be fun to see what those word counts actually wind up clocking in as. Kind of betting higher than the minimums, especially since I don't have the exchange assignments yet.:)
misachan: (headdesk)


Well, it's been a while so let's have another "[livejournal.com profile] misachan is bad with dates and has signed up for All The Things, omg how did that happen?" post. Because otherwise I will never be able to keep track of what comes due when.

 

Deadlines currently haunting my dreams:

 

[livejournal.com profile] polybigbang: 10K minimum, rough drafts due Oct. 10th (for this a rough draft equals 80% of story finished.) I'm actually still planning to try two fics for this, because I couldn't decide between Dean/Cas/Lisa and Clint/Coulson/Nat. And also because I'm not well.

 

[livejournal.com profile] avengers_xbb: 5K minimum, rough drafts due Oct. 22nd. The FAQ doesn't say what exactly counts as a rough draft, but with that word count I can only assume it's the completed fic. This going to be a SPN crossover with angel!Clint. I think I'm only still trying to power through this so I can write the 2014!verse AU.)

 

[livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang: 3K minimum (hah!), rough drafts due Oct. 28th, and last year that meant complete fic so I can only assume that will stay the same. I scored some completely awesome art by [livejournal.com profile] ammo and am deep into Evil Plotting. (Asmodeus is mean, you guys.:)

 

Jaysus. October, how do you work?

 

(This list should get exciting once the holiday challenges start rolling in. I know there's at least one sooper sekrit project someone's running.:)

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] spn_j2_bigbang progress:



Wrote over 9K today. New one day all-time total. Still have more left. Why did I do this to myself? Why?

Seemingly now only type in fragments. Must investigate further.

Who am I? Who are you? Where is this? What is that beautiful house? Where does that highway lead to?
misachan: (2014)
Time to update the list of things I've signed up for and dates I'm dreading.

[livejournal.com profile] dc_dystopia
Due date: June 23rd
Status: EEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Y'know, written out like that it really is starting to look like I should be kept away from the internet for my own good.

***

It's already clear to me that I'm not going to survive waiting for the [livejournal.com profile] dc_dystopia art claims. (EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!)
misachan: (Default)
I was so aghast at myself last night for signing up for yet another thing that I completely forgot to pimp this:

[livejournal.com profile] dark_fest[livejournal.com profile] dark_fest[livejournal.com profile] dark_fest
The multifandom fest for fanfiction with dark themes is now taking prompts.
Fest Schedule and FAQ



Prompts are open until the 3rd. I don't know if I'll be writing for it this round (since I'm already signed up for All The Things) but I've left a bunch of prompts already and will probably leave a some more over the next week. You all should too! *nods*

***

Just for my own reference, here are the rough draft due dates for All The Things:

[livejournal.com profile] super_disney: April 10th

[livejournal.com profile] sncross_bigbang: April 17th

[livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang: May 1st

*whimper*
misachan: (monkey hat)
[livejournal.com profile] jimmybigbang progress:



Whoooooo! It's not very good and still needs work but there are words and it's sent in and doooonnnneeee!

***

[livejournal.com profile] morganoconner did this to me. I was supposed to be safe! She posted about how she was picking The Little Mermaid and was going to write Dean/Cas but changed her mind, and I commented with a Dean/Cas idea (my usual: Dean and Cas meet, Cas gets into trouble, Dean goes to save him, you know the drill) but that was okay because the prompt was taken.

But then I went and looked at the prompts and Flight of the Navigator was there and guys, I loved that movie so much when I was a kid. And it works so well as a Dean/Cas prompt, with Cas as the alien who kidnaps Dean and brings him back eight years later not realizing what a big deal that is, and there's guilt and misunderstandings and stupid, stupid risk taking! Cas skulking around disguised as a human! Dean saving Cas from the bad guys even though he still kind of hates him! Bonding because Cas is the only one who don't treat him like a freak!

You all are supposed to keep me from doing things like like this!

At least it's not another big bang?
misachan: (sexywingmisha)
[livejournal.com profile] jimmybigbang progress:



There's one more section left, probably around 3-4k, and then done. *maniacal laughter*

I also got in touch with my artist (guys! someone picked my fic to make art of! that's awesome!) so I'll know soon enough what they think of the ~story so far~.

***

God, I'm so behind on comments. (Which is in no way a complaint, because saying "I have so many comments to reply to!" is like saying "Oh no! How will I eat all this ice cream?!" The best of all problems, in other words. You guys are Super Awesome, have I told you that recently?) Also, my masterlist is a horrible mess. Must fix that.

***

A Mysterious Stranger replied to the mini-dvd commentary meme and asked me to expound on this excerpt from Celebrations:

Commentary below! )
misachan: (pretty Cas)
[livejournal.com profile] jimmybigbang progress:



Whoo progress! I'm a little over half way through my outline and should definitely break 10K tonight. My extension deadline is the 28th, so if I can keep this going I should definitely be able to make that.

***

Also, I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang. That's two new ones, now. For the love of fuzzy kittens, people, please don't let me sign up for anything else. I cannot be trusted to act in my own self-interest on this.

*types*

misachan: (chibi dean/cas)
Taking a quick writing break because OH YAY we can claim our [livejournal.com profile] deancas_xmas stories! I wrote Forks In The Road for [livejournal.com profile] electricskeptic (who by the way wrote me the fantabulous The Drugs Don't Work which everyone should go and read because it's one of my favorite things ever.

***

Also, I signed up for this:


Come and sign up for [livejournal.com profile] sncross_bigbang!

Rules, Schedule, and Other Information
Author Sign Ups | Artist Sign Ups


I am going with the SPN/White Collar cross. You should sign up too!

***

Finally, a meme:

Pick a paragraph (or any passage less than 500 words) from anything I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you 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.

***

*Back to writing*
misachan: (Dean says 'sup)
[livejournal.com profile] jimmybigbang progress:



Ugh, I hate asking for extensions. Final drafts were due yesterday but I couldn't grab anything close to the amount of writing time I'd hoped over the holidays. Also, signing up for three different challenges with due dates in Dec-Jan probably wasn't my brightest moment. Four, actually, counting [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking. God, it's like a sickness.

Speaking of, I did manage to write four little things for that, so I'll post one of those tomorrow night. Maybe the angsty one. And the [livejournal.com profile] deancas_xmas reveals are Saturday! *dances*

***

Now that I've admitted I have a sickness, [livejournal.com profile] sncross_bigbang sign-ups are Friday and I am tempted. If I sign up I think I'll go with my White Collar idea, where Neal's sold his soul and it causes all kinds of problems. Although Doctor Who is also tempting. And Human target. And ooh, my L4D2 idea I've rambled about where it's 5.04!verse and everyone goes to hell.

Seriously, if I was on the Legion of Superheroes my name would be Indecisive Lass and my power would be to baffle villains with my inability to make decisions.

Can someone come over and do my dishes? Please? What if I make puppy eyes? {puppy eyes}

I had a dream last night about an SPN AU where the demons, angels and hunters were all rival biker gangs, Sons of Anarchy style.

I don't even know, people.

I was supposed to post this days ago, but RL threw up all over me the past few days in various minor but annoying ways. But anyway! For [livejournal.com profile] morganoconner, who was having a bad time this week and wanted a peek at my [livejournal.com profile] spn_in_space crossover:

Sam & River, a couple of nights after Simon and River join the crew )

Still doing this: Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you and excerpt from that story.
misachan: (awesomemisha)
I signed up for GISHWES! At least, I think I did; I had to edit the email and resubmit it, and there's always the possibility I failed the essay portion of the exam. But nothing is being announced until the 18th from what I gather, so we'll see if I managed to do this right.

These two were my favorite of Misha's countdown tweets today:

@mishacollins: Registration closes in 4 hours. i'm afraid, very afraid. A sh*t load of people have signed up. it's going to be mayhem.

@mishacollins: Less than 3 hours to register. This was a bad idea. it'll take hundreds of hours to review submissions. I have a family.

It is killing me that [livejournal.com profile] dc_dystopia's time frame is exactly the same as [livejournal.com profile] jimmybigbang's (the rough drafts are literally due within days of each other) because it hit me that would be the perfect excuse to write the SPN/24 crossover I've been kicking around the past few months.

OR! Or my 2014!Cas-does-drugs-because-Lucifer-keeps-walking-through-his-dreams idea! That would also work! Why does everything cool have to go on at the same time?!?

***

So last night I had a dream where I was watching Human Target (God, I miss my show) where the case wound up taking a decidedly supernatural turn. The team all brainstormed what to when Guerrero walked in, heard the story, said, "I know a guy" and called up Bobby (because Guerrero and Bobby both know everyone.) Bobby sent in Sam and Dean with Cas along for the ride; when they all walked in Guerrero took one look at Cas and said, "Hey bro, been a while," just as cool as you please. Apparently Guerrero had pulled a Gabriel, only instead of an angel pretending to be a trickster he was an angel slumming it as a human assassin.

That was as far as I got before Lexi in all her grace knocked something over and woke me up, and I'm not sure how I feel about my brain coming up with that. On hand, the concept that Guerrero essentially fell for Chance the way Cas fell for Dean amuses me, and I like the image of the two of them sighing over their pain in the ass humans. On the other hand, one of the things I like most about Guerrero is that he has a kid, and I don't even know if vesseled angels can do that. I mean, Jesse Turner being conceived in a demon-possessed body made him the antichrist.

Although the idea that Guerrero's son might be the Second Coming is hilarious.

***

Back to writing. I will have this [livejournal.com profile] deancas_xmas fic done and in beta shape tonight if it kills me.
misachan: (Default)
1) [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang is safely in the expert hands of [livejournal.com profile] electricskeptic!

2) [livejournal.com profile] deancas_xmas continues apace! I'm aiming to have this done by this weekend so I can work on my [livejournal.com profile] spn_in_space and [livejournal.com profile] jimmybigbang. I actually did wrote some more of the spacey one this week (River and Cas talking about broken things. *smooshes them both*) It needs a little bit more plotting - I know how it ends, and a major thing that happens before that, I just need to pin down what happens between - but I'm hoping I can have that down by this weekend, once I get the [livejournal.com profile] deancas_xmas out of the way.

3) The other reason I want the [livejournal.com profile] deancas_xmas out of the way is because I'm going on vacation! In a few short days I should be up at the Cape, happily getting puppy snuggles and having a whole week of sweet, sweet nothing.

***

I just realized that my [livejournal.com profile] spn_in_space draft and my [livejournal.com profile] jimmybigbang summary are due the same day. Hahaha. Ha. *sigh*

There was something else I do not recall. It will come to me, I'm sure.
