Living the WIP life / Gearing up for June

So...I've been working on the Frankenstory for a while now. The Frankenstory is the unofficial name of the X-Men WIP that I started two years ago and have been fiddling with ever since. I used to always write very linearly. Like, I could never even skip over scenes that were giving me trouble. But it turns out that that style of writing doesn't work as well when I work full time and don't feel like writing when I get home. So I wrote most of this fic in pieces in Google Docs, all out of order. And I've been filling in the gaps and rearranging scenes ever since. All in all, I'd call the method successful. I did write a lot, and I found I was able to capture my initial ideas much better than if I sat on them for a while. But this method definitely needs more refinement if I want to keep using it, because this WIP is a mess.

Anyway, it's almost done, but I made the decision of going ahead and starting to post it on AO3 as I finish revising. I debated whether it would make more sense to finish the fic completely first, but so far I feel good about my decision. It spurred me to make some narrative decisions that I was dragging my feet on. Anyway, if you like dark!Charles, dub-con, misuse of telepathy, and mutual Stockholm Syndrome and Lima Syndrome, here's my WIP.

I had this really ambitious idea that I would try to finish the main three X-Men movieverse WIPs I'm working on before Dark Phoenix comes out. The other two WIPs are an extended version of the Charles/Hank Ancient Rome fic I wrote recently and a post-X-Men Apocalypse AU involving Wanda Maximoff. All of these fics are AUs, so it's not liked I'm worried about Dark Phoenix jossing them, but whenever new canon comes out, I worry about it impacting what I'm inspired to write or how I see the characters, so I liked the idea of finishing these fics before then. I don't think that's really going to happen.

On a personal note, I don't know if I'm going to get around to seeing Dark Phoenix in theaters or not, and I'm a little sad about that. I'm really eager to see it, but I've been working on addressing some anxiety issues, and those issues are affecting my willingness to go to a movie theater right now. I don't want to let this affect my life too much, but I don't want it to be something that I stress out over. So I'm playing it by ear right now. In any case, I'm a spoiler fanatic, so it's not like I'll be in the dark about what happens. :P

Considering starting a community....

Unless my search skills have failed me, there doesn't seem to be any currently active community on DW for the X-Men movieverse. Would it be madness to consider starting one? Maaaybe, yeah. I'm not sure how much interest there would actually be. I'd also like to support the communities that have been started on Pillowfort. I'm not the greatest at self-promotion, and I'd really need to plan activities or something to spur any interest. I'd like to do it, but I don't want to half-ass it or get my hopes up.

The NaNo curse

I feel like NaNoWriMo might be cursed for me. I feel a little bad even joking about that, because I know, I know--it's an accountability and prioritization thing.

But the fact remains. No matter how much I water down NaNo to make it work for me, I always end up feeling like I've been less productive than I would have been if I didn't say I'm doing NaNo. I feel like I could set a goal of writing flash fiction for NaNo, and it still wouldn't happen for some reason. This year, I do have some decent excuses--real life has been a pain this month. Though, if I'm really being honest, writing in general hasn't been going great for the past few months. I struggled a bit with Trick or Treat this year even though I was really enthusiastic about my assignment and the prospect of writing treats.

This year, the NaNo casualty was my X-Men movieverse fic of doom, the 30k WIP I've been writing for the past year and told myself that I would absolutely finish during November, using NaNo as an excuse to nudge myself. This fic is also known as the Frankenfic, since I pieced together scenes haphazardly and am now trying to bring the damn thing to life.

I really do want to finish it. I feel like I need to so that I can focus on other things. I'm at that awkward point where my heart is starting to move on and my brain is losing interest. But I've put too much work into this damn thing to leave it unfinished, and I really just need to write the ending and flesh out some of the scenes in the middle. It's terrible, but at this point, I almost feel like I'd rather finish it even if it's not perfect or doesn't match my original vision as well as I'd like.

Trick or Treat 2018 Letter

This is my letter for the Trick or Treat exchange, 2018 edition.

I like all sorts of fic, so I'm pretty flexible! Also, I like both happy/fluffy fic and some pretty dark stuff, so feel free to go in whichever direction you want. I don't mind unhappy endings. I have some favorite ships, but I also enjoy gen and friendship fic just as much.

I'm not very good at coming up with prompts, and it's hard to get a balance between including proper prompts and having nothing. I tried to include some things that I like/would find interesting about the characters I requested, but feel free to ignore or use that as a rough guideline.

Cut for lengthCollapse )

An update

It's been ages since I posted on here, and I kinda miss it. So I thought I would post an update here. I'm pretty sure I still have crossposting set up with LJ, and I don't really feel inclined to turn it off right now, but I haven't really been using LJ except for reading old kink memes. I want to start using my DW more, though.

So, a brief update:

- Fandom-wise, I'm mainly into X-Men at the moment. I'd been sort of into the movieverse for a while but not really fannish about it, and then last year I dived headfirst into the movieverse fandom and started getting into the comics. I'm a little sad that there doesn't seem to be more of an active community on DW at the moment, because I'd love to have more people to chat and talk fic with.

Otherwise, I'm still into Lucifer and am really excited that Netflix has saved it from cancellation. I also watched Killing Even recently and really enjoyed it.

- Writing has been hit or miss. I'm working on a long-ish (I expect it to be around 40k when it's all done) X-Men fic that I'm aiming to have done this summer. I've been working on it forever, and it's kind of a mess, but I want to finish it, damn it.

I finished a short story recently, which I'm excited about because I'm not great at short stories. My novel has been going less well, and I'm thinking of taking on a new project that feels more straightforward. I hesitate to do that, because I don't wan to be someone who doesn't finish stuff, but...the new idea actually has a plot. It has a clear beginning, middle, and end that I feel capable of writing. The other project doesn't.

Since I work full-time now, and I'm prone to feeling lazy and tired when I get home, I've taken to writing on my phone a lot during my break. The good news is, I've written a fair amount this way (about 15k words of the X-Men fic), and I feel like I've been a lot more productive. The bad news is that I've been writing out of order, in small snippets, and now it's a pain in the ass to finish the story and get it organized. I want to find a way to make this method work, because I'm so much more productive this way (and less inclined to just think about scenes instead of actually writing them down).

- IRL, I've been doing all right. 2017 and the first few months of 2018 were kind of stressful and tough on the anxiety/depression front, but I'm hanging in there and am doing pretty well now, all things considered ("all things" being the pretty demoralizing state of politics at the moment). Still working. Still on the fence about whether I feel up to trying graduate studies.

Trick or Treat 2017 Letter

So, this is my first year doing the Trick or Treat exchange, and I'm happy to be giving it a shot. :)

I like all sorts of fic, so I'm pretty flexible! Also, I like both happy/fluffy fic and pretty dark stuff, so feel free to go in whichever direction you want. I don't mind unhappy endings. I have some favorite ships, but I also enjoy gen and friendship fic just as much.

I'm not very good at coming up with prompts, and it's hard to get a balance between including proper prompts and having nothing. I tried to include some things that I like/would find interesting about the characters I requested, but feel free to ignore or use that as a rough guideline.

General likes:

- Friendship fic
- Character studies and backstory
- Smut
- For porn, things I like include like anal sex/play, spanking, power play, slavefic, A/B/O, BDSM AUs, humiliation, and watersports. I like both consensual and non-con/dub-con interpretations. Also, I'm cool with a lot of kinks written in a way that's not explicitly sexual, like spanking as non-sexualized punishment or A/B/O worldbuilding. I'm also happy with vanilla smut, though!
- Darkfic/art
- Humor
- Loyalty kink (one character is very loyal toward and cares for another. Recognition of that from the other character can be nice but isn't essential)
- Pining (mutual or non-mutual)
- Enemies becoming friends/lovers and maybe not completely trusting each other
- Characters getting a break from their usual routine, like going out
- Bonding and unexpected friendships
- I love Halloween, so if you want to do something Halloween-themed, I'm definitely game!

Some specific likes for tricks:

- Body horror
- Tentacle monsters
- Gaslighting/manipulation
- Mind control
- Frightening visions/hallucinations/apparitions (take of this what you will--could be ghosts, hallucinations, telepathy, etc.)
- Characters not trusting their own perceptions/questioning reality
- Hauntings/ghosts
- Stockholm syndrome/lima syndrome

DNWs:

- Explicit underage sex
- Character bashing (characters being criticized or made fun of a bit is fine. I just like it to feel fair or good-humored)
- Animal abuse

Fandoms:

X-Men (Alternate Timeline movies)

Characters requested: Erik Lehnsherr, Ororo Munroe, Hank McCoy, Jean Grey, Charles Xavier, Peter Maximoff.

Some of my favorite pairings are Charles/Hank, Charles/Erik, and Jean/Ororo, but I'm pretty flexible on that. I also really like team interaction, solo gen, and friendship.

Some prompts/things I like:

- Anything related to the school. Maybe Charles and Hank running the school together, or one or both of them interacting with students in general. Or Jean or Ororo in a school context. If you want to go with a Halloween theme, maybe the students want to celebrate Halloween.

- Hank taking care of Charles or being loyal to him in general.

- Hank and Charles navigating being in a relationship.

- Hank adjusting to his Beast form, or dealing with challenges related to it. How does it affect his life, either physically (ie, does he have a hard time working in his lab at first because he's not used to his new hands?) or mentally/socially (he must have had to stay in hiding before he developed the serum and before mutants became mainstream). If you pair him with someone, it'd be interesting to see the sexual implications addressed--like, does he worry about accidentally hurting his partner with his strength or his sharp teeth?

- Jean and/or Ororo learning to control their powers or playing with them (whether it's harmless or not is up to you).

- Charles relating to Jean as a telepath and seeing himself in her.

- Jean and Ororo being friends.

- Ororo adjusting to life at the school and in the US.

- Ororo having a crush on Jean (either requited or not).

- Charles pushing the ethical boundaries of telepathy. This could be anything from occasionally influencing people for convenience to something darker like holding someone prisoner using his powers or altering their memory in a major way.

- Anything related to Charles being a telepath, in general.

- Peter getting more involved at the school after Apocalypse. Maybe the younger kids look up to him and he's not sure what to think about it.

- Peter's criminal activities and thrill-seeking behavior.

- Erik finding out that Peter is his son. Up to you whether you want to take it in a humorous or more dramatic direction. I would be all for Erik being exasperated by Peter and them having some fun father-son interaction, but I'd also enjoy a more serious take on how hard it might be for them to figure things out.

- Anything about Erik's time with his Brotherhood in between XMFC and his capture. How did he get along with his new friends/followers, especially when most of them had been following Shaw? What type of leader was he?

- Anything about the effect that Erik's time in prison had on him, or how he was treated. Go as angsty or dark as you'd like.

- For Charles/Erik, I like in-universe stuff or AUs where they have their powers. I also have a fondness for bottom!Erik (and, in A/B/O, omega!Erik), but I'm not particular on that by any means.

Alien Series

Characters requested: David 8, Elizabeth Shaw, Meredith Vickers.

In addition to gen, I really like David/Elizabeth. I'd also be interested in seeing more David/Vickers.

Some prompts/things I like:

- David/Elizabeth, especially if Elizabeth never quite trusts him. I'd be interested in seeing them relate to each other without removing the conflict between them.

- AU where Elizabeth gets a different ending (for better or worse).

- Anything about what happened leading up to Elizabeth's death.

- Elizabeth was alive to see the Engineers' planet (and learns what David did).

- Elizabeth's life/career on Earth before Prometheus.

- David learning more about the Engineers' practices and technology. When did he decide to destroy them and carry on their experiments?

- David's twisted ideas about creation and life.

- Backstory about David's life with Peter Weyland. I'd also be interested in David/Peter Weyland if you wanted to take it in that direction.

- Vickers' life and background before Prometheus. I feel like there are a lot of questions about her, especially in regards to her relationship with her father. Was it well-known that she was Weyland's daughter? What was the source of the conflict between them?

- Anything about David and Vickers' relationship and rivalry, and how they saw each other.

- David/Vickers. Maybe they have hatesex. Maybe Vickers takes out her anger on him. Maybe one or both of them worry about Weyland finding out and disapproving. Or maybe they relate to each other in some way even though there's also some resentment.

White Collar

Characters requested: Mozzie, Sara Ellis, Alex Hunter, Diana Berrigan.

Pairings I like with these characters include Sara/Alex, Sara/Diana, Alex/Kate, and Sara/Neal. I also really like team/friendship fic and characters working together, especially if it's an eccentric or unexpected combination (like Mozzie and Sara or Mozzie and Diana).

Some prompts/things I like:

- Mozzie's schemes, unusual interests, disguises, and conspiracy theories. Maybe he introduces another character to the Tiles of Fire movies, or comes up with a bizarre Halloween costume.

- Mozzie interacting with Diana and/or her son (maybe Theo can go trick or treating).

- I also really like Mozzie's friendships with Elizabeth and Neal, and his interaction with Peter.

- For Diana, Sara, and Alex, I really like that while they have different characteristics and strengths but are all very good at what they do and are highly-motivated. I like Diana's toughness and assertiveness, Sara's determination, and Alex's self-protectiveness. I'd love anything involving their jobs (or "job" in Alex's case), even if it's not detailed casefic.

- I also really like how Sara skirts the line between being on the law-abiding side and sometimes breaking the rules.

- Anything involving Sara's sister. I'm a little annoyed that there was never much closure in canon--even in the form of her explicitly accepting that there might not be a resolution.

- I like Diana's teamwork with Jones and Neal.

- Something post-finale involving one of the requested characters would be interesting. What do they go on to do?

- For something Halloween/horror-themed, maybe someone could find themselves with a cursed/haunted artifact. Or they could break into a haunted building.

Torchwood

Characters requested: Toshiko Sato, Suzie Costello, Jack Harkness, Ianto Jones.

If you go with something shippy, I ship pretty much ship everyone with everyone in Torchwood. I'm not a big fan of Children of Earth and I didn't watch Miracle Day, so I'd prefer something that takes place prior to that (or a canon-divergence AU).

Some prompts/things I like:

- Suzie's experiments with the resurrection gauntlet.

- Backstory and character study for Suzie. Why did she hate her father? How did she come to start killing for her experiments?

- Toshiko being smart and competent.

- Ianto's experiences with Torchwood One and trying to save Lisa.

- Jack's backstory and years on Earth as an immortal. Also, his missing memories from his time as a Time Agent. If you wanted to go a darker route, I'm interested by the implications that he's done some pretty dark things, both that he remembers and doesn't remember.

- My favorite episodes are Cyberwoman; Countrycide; Greeks Bearing Gifts; They Keep Killing Suzie; Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang; Adrift; and Fragments. I love fic based on those.

- Alien tech gone awry (either in a light-hearted or dark way).

- People coming/going through the Rift.

- Aliens. And sex involving aliens if you wanted to go that route.

- Anything involving the Year That Never Was and the effect it had on Jack or on the team.

Moving on?

First of all, hi! Wow, it's been a little while since I've really posted much. Honestly, I've just been busy. Also, this has always been a primarily fannish account, and while I still love White Collar, I haven't been as active in the fandom or writing as much fic (though I still have some WIPs, including one that will be posted soon). And my newer fandoms aren't on LJ as much.

Anyway, the reason I'm posting this is because, as a lot of people have noticed, LJ recently moved completely over to servers in Russia, and have updated their TOS accordingly. I'm not particularly concerned about what this means for me, personally, but I'm not comfortable with continuing to use LJ. For right now, I plan to stop posting to this account. If you don't already, please feel welcome to look me up on Dreamwidth, AO3, and Tumblr (I'm citrinesunset everywhere). There's a chance that I'll consider deleting this account. I don't really want to, but it's a possibility. If I do, I'll try to back everything up first.

ETA: I've been thinking about it, and it's highly unlikely that I'm going to delete my account or any content on here. I hate deleting stuff and I don't see how it would make much difference except maybe to inconvenience people who may have fic that was posted here bookmarked or something. But as I say above, I'm planning to stop posting here and using this account more than "necessary." If anything changes, like if they start purging inactive accounts, I'll cross that bridge then.

Smut Swap 2017 Letter

Hi! I hope this letter is helpful. I find Smut Swap signups difficult because 1) there are so many tags to choose from and I tend to go wild picking kinks and 2) I'm not really that picky/specific. I didn't have a lot of time to complete my signup, so I decided to save optional details/prompts for my letter.

But seriously, I'm pretty flexible. My only major likes/dislikes, for the purpose of this exchange:
