Did this one the last time it made the rounds, but it was interesting so I'm giving it another go. Nicked from [livejournal.com profile] ilovetakahana.

Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you between one and three sentences from that story.

Applicable fandoms include any on my tags listing. To make it easier, I did tag this post to all my fandoms. :)

Nicked from [livejournal.com profile] ilovetakahana

1. Think of up to 20 ships you support.
2. List them using descriptions of the characters involved rather than their names.
3. Have your f-list guess as many of the ships as they can.
4. Fandom hints will be given if asked in the comments.

a.) loud, acts ditzy, eats hamburgers constantly/hair-trigger temper, can't hold his liquor, tea-drinking [America/England, Hetalia, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] _profiterole_]
b.) smuggler turned information broker/elite mercenary exiled from her homeworld (if someone gets this, I will love you; if you ship it, I will want to fangirl over them with you) [Talon Karrde/Shada D'ukal, Star Wars Expanded Universe, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] ilovetakahana and [livejournal.com profile] laria_gwyn]
c.) he used to be a spy/she's his trigger-happy ex-girlfriend [Michael/Fiona, Burn Notice, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] laria_gwyn]
d.) half-demon, is thwarted at every turn when he tries to redeem himself/modern-day witch who seems to be in love with love
e.) candy-loving trickster/moody younger brother [Gabriel/Sam, Supernatural, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] der_jemand]

g.) immortal, fixed point/majorly over-qualified coffee boy/cop turned secret agent [Jack/Ianto/Gwen, Torchwood, guessed by[livejournal.com profile] _profiterole_]
h.) jerk with a very hidden decent side/shy computer genius [Owen/Tosh, Torchwood, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] der_jemand]
i.) never noticed by anyone or else mistaken for his brother/insanely loudmouthed and cocky, probably shouldn't even exist anymore [Canada/Prussia, Hetalia, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] _profiterole_]
j.) can design anything/can be anyone/keeps track of all the details [Ariadne/Eames/Arthur, Inception, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] laria_gwyn]
k.) wants things to be neater/just wanted his dad to love him [Saito/Fischer, Inception, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] ilovetakahana and [livejournal.com profile] laria_gwyn]
l.) unwanted foreign queen/intelligent, pragmatic king's man
m.) can change appearance at will/last of his friends left standing

So, I guess this counts as a meme of sorts. Do you name your technology/kitchen appliances/whatever? And if so, what has a name and what are the names?

Here are mine:
Laptop: Arthur (yes, as in the Inception point man)
iPod: Mark Smeaton (he got beheaded, so this is why it died, isn't it?)
MP3 player: Austria (it makes sense in Hetalia context!)
Kindle: Tris (after a Tamora Pierce character who is a major bookworm)
Coffeepot: Ianto (if you watch Torchwood, this makes sense)
My fic flash drive: Daemon (It's always with me, like a daemon in the His Dark Materials books)

It's half my fandoms in microcosm! It's kind of silly, and also utterly ridiculous, but hey, it's fun.

If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach. —Alfred Hitchcock

When I write a story, what do readers immediately look for? What am I associated with? I'm curious to find out what people expect when my name's on the story.
fae_boleyn: (USUK)
So, I've been rather absent on LJ and Twitter lately, I do apologize. I've been drifting around the Internet but not being very sociable, that's very hermit-like of me. I should be on Twitter more, we shall see how it goes.

In which there is news and vague brooding )

On to this meme, for once not jacked from anyone, I'm starting it though I am sure that someone else has done it.

List five ways in which fandom, specific or general, has invaded real life for you.
Here be my answers! )

So, basically, ask me anything. Anything you think you ought to know about my life but don't, anything you're curious about, anything you fancy. Silly or serious. Anon-commenting is on.

Heh, so, I'm doing the five icons meme again, this time with [livejournal.com profile] rodlox's choices. Well, actually, two of rodlox's choices and three of mine because there were three repeats. :) It happens. Rules are the same, I'll pick five icons for those who reply.


rodlox's two first.

Anita/Eames, from my Inception fic Architecture of Your World and Mind

I don't think it's a secret that I like to cast my fics, and that was definitely true for my Inception fic where I genderbent Arthur (Anita) and Yusuf (Yasirah). I didn't come up with the idea of Summer Glau as girl!Arthur, but I think she's perfect. Mostly I use this icon when posting chapters or replies to comments for "Architecture" or for commenting on other genderbent fics.

Gabriel and Castiel, Supernatural

So, I think this might be a travesty of sorts, but... I ship Dean/Castiel and Sam/Gabriel (not really into Wincest but I see where that crew is coming from sometimes) but... I think I actually ship Gabriel&Castiel platonic brotherly... stuff most of all. We don't get it in the show, which makes me sad, and it also doesn't seem to be a common theme in fic, which makes me more sad. D: Then my response was to write some, because those boys need family who actually gives a damn, really quick. :D Anyway, I use this for commenting on the brotherly!platonic!Gabe&Cas I do find, and on other Supernatural fics where my Dean/Cas and Sam/Gabe icons don't quite seem to fit.

And my three...

Edward Seymour/Anne (Stanhope) Seymour, The Tudors

Oh God, this pairing. Historically a happy couple, on the show almost as dysfunctional as Henry's marriages, which is saying a lot as anyone who knows the "Divorced, beheaded, died. Divorced, beheaded, survived." refrain for Henry's six wives. In the show Anne and Edward hate each other, but the actors' chemistry is... scorching even in mutual hatred. God, they could have been a wonderfully snarky, evil power couple, but no. I use this as my icon on fanfiction.net as well, since most of my involvement there is in the Tudors fandom. I support my ships! (And the right of everyone else to do so for theirs, no ship bashing here.)

Anita Blake and Edward aka Ted Forrester, Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter

OK, I love the Anitaverse, gratuitous, possibly IKEA porn and all. And I love all of Anita's boys, but most of all I love Edward, who is not one of them. He's Anita's soulmate, by a definition that your soulmate, your other half, is too much like you to be your lover. You're parts of a whole, but romance would be like incest. I love the concept, and I love how the Anita&Edward dynamic changes - we meet him in the very first Anita novel and Anita's expecting him to kill her one day; by the last book to date, in which he also figures prominently, he's basically Anita's best friend. These guys and Gabe&Cas (above) are probably my favorite platonic!ships, if that makes any sense, in all my many fandoms. I use this icon basically whenever the hell I want to, no particular rhyme or reason to its use. I just love it.

Katherine of Aragon/Anne Boleyn, The Tudors

Yes, the slash instead of 'and' means this is not a platonic pairing. My default icon is for my fic Handmaid, which was probably the fanfic equivalent of a top-seller (maybe not quite a best-seller, see the brilliant ReganX on ff.net for that...). Handmaid came out of someone on the Tudors forum wanting a Henry/Anne/Katherine fic that was not a triangle but actually involved romance on all sides. While those three never quite worked in my head as a triad, the three couples were definitely fun to write. And Anne/Katherine, more of a romantic friendship due to character and context, is definitely the heart and soul of one of my best fics. It's my default because Handmaid was a turning point in my writing, and I like to remember that.

More meme-ness!

1. Reply to this post with "LICK ME" (or any other explicit form of consent), and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

rei17 picked five of my icons, so here goes!

X-Men: FC, Erik/Charles

I think this is the only one of the icons chosen not tied to one of my fics. Huh. Anyway, I just really liked the pairing but I wanted a slightly different look to the icons i was seeing. So I added fire. :D

Inception: Ariadne/Arthur/Eames

This one is a thumbnail from the story banner I did for my series Three Is More Than Just Company. It's the best of the various A/A/E icons I did back when I first got into the pairing, which is why it's the only one I kept.

Inception: girl!Yusuf/Ariadne

Again, it's a story-based icon. This time it's Ariadne and Yasirah (girl!Yusuf) from my fic Architecture of Your World and Mind, which features always-female versions of Yusuf and Arthur (called Anita in the fic). It took forever to find pictures that worked, as I recall.

Tudors: Anne Boleyn and Jane Seymour

This is not a romantic pairing. It's an icon made for my Tudors fic Standing Outside the Fire, in which Anne Boleyn and Jane Seymour are raised as stepsisters and best friends. Even though the fic surrounds the events of Henry VIII's Great Matter and his subsequent marriage to Anne, Jane and Anne - and their siblings - are definitely the main characters of the story.

Supernatural: Dean/Castiel

Heh. Sign of my newest fandom, this one. It's inspired by the oneshot series I'm working on, which goes from mild AU into major AU as time goes on, but in which Dean/Cas is going to be one of the major pairings. Besides that it was mostly just playing around with the opacity option in GIMP. (As is the icon chosen for this post, which is totally series-inspired.)
fae_boleyn: (Default)
So, yet another meme, this time stolen from [livejournal.com profile] sour_idealist. Go to AO3 and list your top ten fics in terms of hit count. I'm actually tweaking it to top five from AO3 and top five from fanfiction.net, since I only have 17 fics on AO3 and I've written more than that, not to mention almost every fic there is Inception. So for the sake of balance...AO3 Fics )FF.Net Fics )
fae_boleyn: (jibbs)
First one nicked from [livejournal.com profile] iantosgal , the second from [livejournal.com profile] rodlox .

Give me a fic of mine that I've written (all fic is tagged by pairing if that helps) and I will tell you three details that didn't make it into the fic/are set to happen later.


1. What they most commonly do during sex
2. Who has prettier hair
3. What they argue about most often
4. Who'd cope best if the other one died
5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them.

(I might have issues with question one seeing as I don't write much smut, but... Also, my OT3 ships are fair game with this too.)
fae_boleyn: (erik/charles)
Give me a link to one of my fics and I'll give you three details that didn't make it into the fic. Background canon, deleted scenes, or a look into the future. My choice, but if you have a specific question you can ask it in your request.

My masterlist is here and most of my work is on it. Most of what's not is old and kind of sucks, you wouldn't want to read it anyway. :D

Also, nicked from [livejournal.com profile] starlingthefool . Forgot to mention that. :D

Another meme, once again a writing exercise.

So, here goes, nicked from [livejournal.com profile] sour_idealist . Pick one [or more!] of my icons. I will (try my best to) write you at least one sentence of something vaguely resembling fiction based on said icon. I've just gone through and cut down on my userpics so I could have room to add, but there's still a fair few. :) I'll also do your icons if it's a fandom we share.

And there's another I wanted to do, a thirty day one with a list of fanfiction-based questions that I swear someone on my flist had, but I have searched up and down and I cannot find it. This is unfortunate. Sigh. *is irritated*

In other news, I'm on a semi-diet and even though I'm bouncing between a few points on the scale, it does seem to be working. Here's hoping it continues. I really shouldn't have let it go as far as it did, though at least I don't think I hit the unhealthy mark, just the "a little too plump to be good" point. Meh.

fae_boleyn: (Default)
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 just signed up for the X-Men Big Bang. And I am apparently planning a fic which will span about twenty years - well, technically. The plan right now is five parts set in different times, with an epilogue set at the very beginning of X1. (Senate hearing FTW.) So actually almost thirty years including that. I... might be a little crazy.

I'm... kind of looking for a beta. This isn't something I do often - I had a largely irritating experience with the only beta I ever had - but... I'm sort of looking for a copy editor, by which I mean someone to check my grammar and such when I'm done, the sort of thing I did for my high school paper and for various friends' and classmates' college essays. (I may go into business with this, seriously.) 

Ahem. But I digress. I'm less concerned about my technical skills, so I'm looking more for someone who can be a brainstorming buddy than a copy editor, though a second pair of eyes going over my work is not something I'd object to. Anyone interested? I am perfectly happy to return the favor, seriously. It's just that I have all these vague ideas and I really think I need to talk them all out with someone to make them concrete. That strategy has turned out some of my best work to date so far, and I'd like this fic to rank up there too. :)

On a lighter note, because I find this latest meme hilarious, if you were to ship me with another fandom person, who would it be, and why?

Really, this new meme. I don't even.

Also. My cousin's fiancee's bridal shower is tomorrow. Family things, why do I have to go to them? Maybe it will be fun, but I am skeptical. If my cousins can remember I am twenty and no longer seven, thank you very much, there may be progress. Who knows?
