A question, dear flist:

If you were running a spring fanworks fest, what would you name it? (Keeping in mind that I am likely to steal your answer...)

Quick poll:

[Poll #1681905]

Also: what other phrases/sayings can you think of that are about spring?

For some great Sherlock fic reading, here is a Masterlist of all the works produced for Sherlockmas's Christmas fanworks exchange. :D

In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt. ~Margaret Atwood

Why is it not spring now??? I want to dig in my garden!!!

This is my entry for the [ profile] sherlockmas fic exchange, for [ profile] proxydialogue, who asked for some dark humor and a bit of psychologizing. I hope this fits the bill!

EDITED for spelling fail! "Comaraderie" sounds like a social club for vegetables.

The battle rages on! I sent [ profile] evilhippo a special music battle challenge to come up with a list of her top five Christmas/holiday songs; I had no idea it was going to be as hard on her as it was! For an account of just HOW hard, here's the telling of her struggle at her journal. I think you'll be quite surprised as to what she came up with!

As for me, I had trouble with this challenge for the opposite reason: I love Christmas music, and whittling my choices down to five was HARD! Suffice to say, there are many, MANY more favorites left off this list, but what I ended up with is a nice little playlist celebrating both the fun, and the sentiment of the holiday.

Everyone should have "Dominick The Italian Christmas Donkey" in their lives, if only for the fun of being caught singing the chorus to yourself in public. This version comes to you courtesy of New York's PS22 Chorus, a group first introduced to me by the lovely [ profile] planejane.

It stars the most adorable donkey named Mohamed you will ever hope to meet!

First of all, my latest fic from [ profile] thegameison_sh: (The challenge was "minor characters")

First, I have to say that there will always be a place in my heart for, as it's one of the places where I first discovered fan fiction. There's a still a lot of awesome stuff there; it just can be really hard to find. (I tend to find an author I enjoy, then read all of their stuff and everything they've favorited. That tends to work.)

Anyway. I have an account there, and most of my (non-porn) stories end up there. The thing is, I'm used to posting my Amy/Rory Doctor Who fics, which are posted and then largely ignored. {We won't even go into how cranky I get when my stories that include The Doctor get more hits on AO3 than my (better-written, I think) Amy/Rory fics.}

Sherlock is an entirely different animal.

It hadn't occurred to me to put my first Sherlock fic for [ profile] thegameison_sh up there, but when I was archiving my latest entry today I thought, why not? So I put both "Strange Bedfellows" and "Almost Anyone" (formerly called "Of Death and Dying") up yesterday.

"Almost Anyone" got two very lovely, very thoughtful reviews. I was pleasantly surprised, and responded right away to thank them. All good.

"Strange Bedfellows"? I don't know what is going on there. It's gotten about 10 "story alert" subscriptions, and the following reviews:

Cut, because I feel a rant coming on... )

This was my entry for Cycle 1 Round 2 of the fic challenge at [ profile] thegameison_sh. I've edited it a bit for clarity, and added an extra 65 words. (The word limit for the challenge is 750.)

As always, any concrit is much appreciated!

Title: "Almost. Anyone."
Fandom: Sherlock (BBC)
Rating: R
WARNINGS: Mentions of suicide and rough sex.

I need to come up with a summary for this fic. )

It's voting time again over at the Doctor Who Rory/Amy comm [ profile] she_is_to_me. This time around, there are seven fics in the running. If you're so inclined, won't you take the time to read these lovely entries and cast your vote? It's a small, newish comm that can always use the extra votes. Please and thank you very much! Oh, and

Happy Halloween!

It has occurred to me that assaulting my flist with gory pictures of me dressed as a zombie is maybe not so nice, soo...

This story was written for Challenge 05 at [ profile] she_is_to_me. It's an AU challenge, and the picture prompt that was my inspiration is included with the story.

As you might have guessed from the title, this is a sort of pastiche of the Frankenstein mythos. I first saw the original movie version of Frankenstein (with Boris Karloff) when I was 15. I watched it in a class called "Science Fiction and Composition". (I should definitely write about that class sometime, but not now.) I didn't read the novel until I took a class on Gothic literature in university. This story is sort of a mish-mash of popular Frankenstein legend, which I use as a jumping-off point.

This is a story that can't decide if it wants to be funny or dramatic, so it's both. At least, I hope so: it could be neither! Do let me know if that's the case. (Concrit, as always always always, more than welcome.)

Appropriately enough, it was a dark and stormy night. )

So, [ profile] originalfic_las, a Last Author Standing competition for writers of original fiction, has started. The prompt for the first challenge is "change". I was hoping for something a little more detailed, but I can work with this. I'm getting a few ideas rattling around my brain, I'm just waiting for them the gel into something writable.

ETA: I meant to mention that if you wanted to sign up for this challenge, you still have until Wednesday to do so!

I just want to make it through the first few rounds, get some idea of where I stand and what I'm up against, and then who knows? I'll blunt my ambitions until I have a better feel for the competition.

I know a couple folks from my flist (like lovely [ profile] ladylovelace) are signed up for the competition--holla back if you're one of them so we can commisserate and cheer each other on!

I'm also in the midst of writing something for [ profile] she_is_to_me's latest challenge. It's an AU challenge, and I'm REALLY excited about my idea, but I still don't know exactly where I'm going with the story. I also have to write my entry for the dark!fic challenge at [ profile] thegameison_sh. It's amazing how these commitments tend to snowball, isn't it?

And now, in honor of National Coming Out Day (October 11 in the US, 12 October in the UK), here is my coming out story:

Re-posted in a cleaned-up version from my old Livejournal )

So, I have signed up for an original fic last author standing competition. Fun or folly? We shall see! I do know this: EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU SHOULD DO THIS CHALLENGE, TOO!

YES! My flist is full of amazing writers, and you'll mind me bitching about this challenge so much less if you're in it with me! (Now isn't that a ringing endorsement?)


Do You Like To Write?

Like to write? Love to write Original Fiction? Great! There is a new challenge, called [ profile] originalfic_las, where you write a story of at least 100 words every two weeks based on a different prompt. Then they get voted on and the person with the least votes is out that week and the person with the most is safe next week. Till you have one author standing who wins! You don't even need to be a GREAT writer!

... who will come out on top?
apple_pathways: Whatever floats your boat! (Rory & Amy Wedding Dance) don't have a voice!

It's time to vote at [ profile] she_is_to_me for the winners of Challenge 03. Once again I would like to request, if you liked my entry "I Thought of You", please consider voting for me.

Here's a link to the voting post; there are links to all of the other fantastic entries there. Give them a read and pick your favorites! It's a young comm, and we need voters to participate; pass it on to any Rory/Amy fans on your flist.

Thanks for your time, and HAPPY SATURDAY!!
