Title: Jericho
Fandom: Inception
Rating: PG, maybe PG-13
Series: Genderbend 'verse, which needs a proper name now...
Pairings: pre-Anita(girl!Arthur)/Eames
Summary: "Don't talk to me about Alexandria." This is what happened in Alexandria, in a time before dreamshare, when Anita Casey and Patrick Eames were just a pair of spies trying to do their job.
Disclaimer: Er... Anita is kinda-sorta mine? She's based off Arthur who is not, though. Alex and Aubrey are mine, Eames is not. Song quote is from a Hilary Duff song, and also not mine.
A/N: A prequel to my genderbend fic "Architecture of Your World and Mind".

 

This is the right choice. )

So I came to an odd conclusion while I was on the train home this weekend, listening to "I'll Cover You" and "Another Day" from the RENT soundtrack. In my genderbend fic, Ariadne/Yasirah and Anita/Eames more or less correspond to Collins/Angel and Roger/Mimi respectively. One couple coming together easily, comfortable together, cheery and fun, the other having some major issues to work out, on-again/off-again... Er, well, they correspond without the HIV and the drugs and the dying. In my universe anyway; going off the theory of the multiverse I don't pretend to know what goes on in the stories never written. :D

Even so, I was a little weirded out by this one.

On another note, how creepy is it to be dating the younger (and very estranged) half-brother of your dad's boyfriend? This is for a fic, and in this case the "dad" in question is immortal and appears to be... Mid thirties, maybe? I'm so bad at guessing ages, but even so. They've also never met, and until recently she would think he was her uncle. One of my fics is being... recalcitrant, or rather one of my newest original characters is being recalcitrant as to what, exactly, her backstory is. It sounds vaguely like a soap opera, I guess, though. Meh.

Speaking of fics and being stubborn... I was reading Good Omens again. The PDF, yes, I gave in after I could not find a hard copy anywhere. And now I want Aziraphale and Crowley in my SPN oneshot series again! Bloody hell. At least this time I did come up with a logical way they could enter into the story, just... not whether they'd stick around, and in what capacity. What do you guys think? Would they step in to try and help stop another Apocalypse, or just offer background support to this go-round's active-duty people? (No, Crowley would not be the show's; my headcanon rejects that idea very hard.)

Either way, I need an overall name for the series. Shit.

Also, the Max Brown as Aziraphale image has faded as I kept reading - based off the cover art, yes, but the character, I can't quite see it. However, now I have James Frain as Crowley in my head and that idea is showing no signs of going away at all. I'm seriously convinced that, if that miniseries I heard about is really going to go through, they should consider him for Crowley.

SPN fandom, you make me sad. I know they didn't actually interact much, but I also know that's not an insurmountable issue, but for a girl desperately looking for non-slashy Gabriel/Castiel brother fics, there's just not much to find. :( Of course, I could take that as incentive to write more of it... If anyone has anything they'd like to see in the way of pre-canon shenanigans from those two (Gabe's playing pagan god, that right there's enough to cause them both a world of trouble) let me know, and I'll see what I can do. :D

Now I'm off to see if I can get some writing done. In various fandoms, as per usual.

Story Title: Architecture of Your World and Mind
Chapter Title: Let's Just Make This Part Go Faster
Fandom: Inception
Summary: Inception's not an easy job, it takes months of careful planning. These are the planning stages. Also, genderbend, girl!Arthur and girl!Yusuf. Movie AU, begins when the movie does, but the primary focus is the pre-job months.
Pairings: past Mal/Cobb, girl!Arthur/Eames, Ariadne/girl!Yusuf (so, yes, het and femslash, no m/m in this one, I do apologize)
Author's Note: I have no excuse for this, really.

Later they'll have time to deal with this properly... )

I need to get ahold of Good Omens. I do have a PDF on my computer, so I can read that I guess, but PDF reading is tedious as all get out. I should know; I did it recently with Pride and Prejudice as well as several school textbooks. Which won't stop me from seeking free PDFs of my textbooks for this semester; saving money is good, but when reading for fun... My library doesn't have it, though they did have Anansi Boys. I can forgive them a little.


But seriously. I was reading the PDF until I got irritated with the format, and now I desperately want either a hard copy or a Kindle copy - oh, wait, Kindle didn't have it last time I checked. That was why I ended up with American Gods. (I'm noticing a pattern here.) Sigh. And sigh again. At this rate the PDF's looking better and better, to be honest. (And from looking at the cover page on the PDF, with Aziraphale and Crowley, I cannot get the image of Max Brown playing Aziraphale out of my head. He... may not be blond enough, but even so. Help!)


On other topics, I'm writing again. slowly but surely. I've tinkered with the Inception genderbend and the OT3 wedding fic. My plan to set off the start of a new school year right is to spend the weekend (once I've moved) in alternating between immersion in various canons and then writing in them. I may also borrow the freewriting strategy from NCIS' Timothy McGee. If that happens, I do not know what I will come out with and in what fandom, but I'll certainly be nice and share it.


I'm working on chapter 15 of Standing Outside the Fire, and for anyone who actually knows/cares about the Tudors, you'll understand the significance when I say I'm writing my version of late 1.08 into 1.09, also known as the Blackfriars Trial stuff. For those not in the know... This is a milestone. It's a tense situation and it's making me tense when I write it. But I'm enjoying it; as I recently discovered when the sheer level of angst in Supernatural fic had me seeking shelter, court intrigues are apparently my happy place/comfort zone. I'm sure this says something about me, I'm just... not sure what. Also, this fic, which began partly as a fusion between three challenges on the Tudors forum, has now added elements of a fourth in the 1536 arc. Dear God, what am I doing to myself?


Speaking of Supernatural, I need more canon immersion, but... I have a feeling I'm not going to leave Adam in Hell or Gabriel dead. Adam because that's just not fair, can't that kid catch a break? Gabriel... Um. I really, really like him. I probably shouldn't. But I do. (Also he's cute. Speaking of cute, and back to Adam, I remember Jake Abel from the Percy Jackson movie as well... When between his appearances there and in Supernatural did he grow into his face and get cute?) I will need to find out how to have the Winchesters meeting human!Castiel after about three years (in which I think they believed he was dead) without too much freaking melodrama because I don't like melodrama.


Back to things actually written, my X-Men BB is slowly coming along. I'm having trouble getting to Points B and C from A, mostly because I know what happens from C to F (or something like that) but before then is a little murky. My Inception fic doesn't seem to want to do much, but as I said, I'm hoping a movie rewatch and maybe reading some fic because I haven't in a while will get the juices flowing again. My Hetalia fics seem to be stalled, I need to do something about that as well.


The trick is to not kill any of my muses while trying to revive others. Oh, and there will be school and quite possibly an internship as well. This is going to be an interesting time, isn't it? And I'll be 21 this November; drinking age here in the States. I'm not sure I care as drinking is not much of a thing for me, but... Still.



Hey, at least the Phillies are number one in the NL East. :D I may or may not have a bit of a thing for newcomer pitcher Vance Worley. And his adorkable glasses. And the mohawk, which usually I don't like. *ponders*

Nicked from [livejournal.com profile] dreadly , because I need some muse kickstarting.

Leave three - five words in the comments below and I’ll write you a 100 word drabble (at least).

Please specify the pairing that you want! :D

So. Arthur/Eames, Ariadne/Yusuf (my genderbent versions of these first two are also allowed), Robert/Saito, Robert/Saito/Ariadne, Ariadne/Arthur/Eames, Cobb/Saito, Charles/Erik, Alex/Darwin, America/England, and Edward Seymour/Anne Stanhope.

I offer many options in hopes of more muse help.

So, I saw X-Men: First Class on Thursday. And I'm not going to do a full review of the film or anything like that, since I suspect that, like me, a lot of you have seen all I might say on your f-lists already. I will say, however, that it blew X2 and X3 completely out of the water (not at all hard with X3 and its mess they generously called a storyline, but that's another story) and, I confess, I thought it was better than X-Men 1.

Some spoilers below )

In other news, I've been, slowly but steadily, tinkering away on my Tudors and Hetalia fics, and shockingly, my Inception genderbend has actually seen some work in the past few days. I'm hoping this means that my Inception muse will be back soon, though with my X-Men muse apparently having been resurrected after over three years (going by the completion date on my single fic in the fandom), God knows what's going to happen next in my mind.

Story Title: Architecture of Your World and Mind
Chapter Title: Lost My Balance On A High Wire
Fandom: Inception
Summary: Inception's not an easy job, it takes months of careful planning. These are the planning stages. Also, genderbend, girl!Arthur and girl!Yusuf. Movie AU, begins when the movie does, but the primary focus is the pre-job months.
Pairings: past Mal/Cobb, girl!Arthur/Eames, Ariadne/girl!Yusuf (so, yes, het and femslash, no m/m in this one, I do apologize)
Author's Note: Rather more Anita/Eames than Ariadne/Yasirah in this one, next chapter is slated to be more balanced but this set-up struck me from nowhere. Anita is almost inexcusably bitchy in this chapter, but I promise justification is coming for it.

"Well then maybe you shouldn't." )

You know, I've managed to avoid any anime/manga fandoms for quite some time now. It wasn't really intentional, but I did it.

Last year, one of my roommates decided to share clips from the English dub of a certain series called Axis Powers: Hetalia. And, you know, I thought it was kind of cute, whatever. I poked around the TV Tropes pages for more info, saw a few of the strips from the manga... Not much happened.

And then. A couple of weeks ago, I saw it was on the anime channel at home, so I decided to put it on. Since then, I have mainlined everything except the World Series - if anyone can tell me where to find an English dub or at least an English subtitled version of that I would appreciate it - both anime and manga. English dubs/translations, I admit, which apparently is sacrilegious in some circles, but... *shrugs*

Anyway. You know, I did not need another fandom. I especially did not need a new plot bunny exploring the relationships among the personifications of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Ireland, told from Ireland's POV. Did I mention the side order of England/America in this? There's also bound to be some Canada since I like England, Canada, and Japan best in that order. I can't figure out how to get Japan in there. :) But that aside, why do these things happen to me? Now I'm poking around the Web for more info on the countries in question, at least the OC ones, so I can develop them more. Don't I have enough to do? Sigh.

Although, while chatting with [livejournal.com profile] eustacia_vye28  tonight, I did work out some ideas for the genderbend fic, specifically for Ariadne's background in that particular 'verse. So that's something, especially as it's giving me some ideas for Ariadne/Yasirah. That is good because while I know how Architecture of Your World and Mind is going to end... I've got nothing on the middle, really. Taking that one as it comes.

Speaking of Ariadne/Yusuf (canon this time) I have a fic rec. [livejournal.com profile] chromonym 's Passage, which is quite possibly one of the better fics I've come across in general, and definitely blows me away for the A/Y pairing. This is something people should be reading. :)

Author's Note: So the last thing I should be doing right now is a new WIP, I know this. But I really wanted to... I promise, I am working on the wedding!fic, I know I have people waiting on that. I promise we will meet Eames and girl!Yusuf in the next chapter, but Ariadne wanted the last word for this one.

So yeah, I never thought I'd write a genderbend fic, but then the idea of Ariadne/girl!Yusuf femslash and girl!Arthur/Eames het got stuck in my head and would not go away. I don't even know, guys... I've got vague ideas in my head, nothing concrete yet, but I'm looking forward to seeing what I can do with it. :D
Manips Under Here! )

So now I have the faces in my head, let's see what ideas begin forming...
