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. :)

Title: Just A Chance For Better Days
Fandom: Good Omens, Supernatural (mildly)
Series: Outrunning The Bad Luck Tailing Us
Characters/Pairing: Adam Young, references to Aziraphale, Crowley (GO version only), Michael, Raphael, and Lucifer (all SPN flavor) Abby Turner (OC), implied Adam/Pepper
Summary: The abdicated Antichrist and his Counterbalance, on the verge of Apocalypse Take Two
Author's Note: Here is where the Outrunning 'verse starts branching beyond Cas and Gabe, into the larger AU I've been meaning it to be. There's a lot of backstory not explained here; it will be, later in the 'verse. Title and cut text inspired by/taken from the Goo Goo Dolls' "Better Days".
Disclaimer: Not mine, except for Abby.

And the one poor child who saved this world/And there's ten million more who probably could... )

Title: I Write Thes Letters To You, But They Get Lost In The Blue
Fandom: Supernatural
Series: Outrunning The Bad Luck Tailing Us
Characters/Pairing: Gabriel, Castiel, mentions of Dean, Sam, Anna, Uriel, Balthazar, and Raphael
Summary: Gabriel and Castiel can't sever ties cleanly, not after all these centuries. In the end it comes down to a question; can you really turn your back on family?
Author's Note: Kind of a tag to The Song Remains The Same, references other events in seasons 4 and 5. Title and cut text taken from Caitlin and Will's "Address In The Stars". Also, the use of Balthazar in a different role than canon was my way of not having to use an OC. There will be more on that in later stories less focused on the Cas&Gabe arc. Using this for my [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo wild card (taking the 'family' prompt).
Disclaimer: Yeah, no, not mine.

I'd give anything just to talk to you... )
fae_boleyn: (gabe and cas)
Title: I Wish You'd Unclench Your Fists
Fandom: Supernatural
Series: Outrunning The Bad Luck Tailing Us
Characters/Pairing: Gabriel, Castiel, Dean, Sam, reference to possible onesided Dean/Castiel
Summary: Gabriel knew the Winchesters were going to be trouble for him and Castiel. But neither of them realized just how right he was until it broke them.
Author's Note: Tags for Tall Tales, Mystery Spot, and Changing Channels. The third segment takes place between season 3 and season 4. So, appropriate spoilers apply. Title and cut text taken from Nickelback's "Someday".
Disclaimer: Yeah, no, not mine.

Now the story's played out like this )
fae_boleyn: (gabe and cas)
Title: A Wheel In Constant Motion
Fandom: Supernatural, vague reference to Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
Series: Outrunning The Bad Luck Tailing Us
Characters: Gabriel, Castiel, references to some pagan gods, Aziraphale, Crowley, and Dean Winchester
Summary: Some snapshots of the angelic brothers through the years.
Author's Note: Jimmy Novak is not Cas' vessel in this 'verse, because, well... Jimmy would have to be over a thousand years old then, or else we'd have weird timey-wimey ball stuff. So it's his ancestor, but they look the same. Only so many combinations in a gene pool, you know. Or something. Doctor Who explains it better. Gabriel and Castiel's little obsessions are explained by Gabe being the patron saint of telecommunications and Cas being associated with travel, among other things. The John Constantine reference comes from my reading somewhere that Castiel was originally supposed to be him before licensing got in the way, hence what I hear is a wardrobe similarity?
Disclaimer: Yeah, no, not mine.

Why is it that Anansi is upset with you, but I'm the one tangled in a giant web? )
fae_boleyn: (gabe and cas)
Title: Mutually Beneficial
Fandom: Supernatural, crossover with Neil Gaiman's American Gods
Series: Outrunning The Bad Luck Tailing Us (series has a name now!)
Characters: Gabriel, Loki, Shadow (briefly), Castiel (mentioned)
Summary: This is how the Archangel Gabriel became the pagan god Loki, for all official purposes.
Author's Note: And the pre-canon fics continue! Well, mostly; this fic is also, technically, a bit of a pre-episode tag to 5.08, Changing Channels, but nothing major.
Disclaimer: Yeah, no, not mine.

Now, doesn't that sound nice? )

So yesterday I came home from school so I could work this weekend, and there's new clothes in my closet. New clothes like, business attire. New clothes like two pantsuits and a dress-suit (I guess it's called that since it's a blue dress and a suit jacket, rather than a skirt). Anyway, I tried them on and while they didn't all fit perfectly, well... Um...

Yeah, I'm still a bit unsettled. Because they didn't look bad. I mean, suddenly I look five years more mature (probably good since my height counts against me there if nothing else) and they actually looked pretty good, like the colors and the fit and whatnot, but, well... Ah fuck, I'm twenty years old, I don't feel old enough to be wearing freaking suits yet! It just felt strange, because I looked nice, but I didn't look a thing like me. I guess that's the point, and I'll get used to it and all, but at the moment I'm still just a tad weirded out by it all.

And then there's my writing. All these various ideas tumbling in my head, my issue is now a very different kind of writer's block. Namely, figuring out where to go first. Because I've got multiple options. The handful of pre-canon SPN things I can do (and it seems Good Omens is firmly lodging itself back in that universe; American Gods already claimed a tiny niche), my Tudor stuff, the various Inception fics, Hetalia if I can get myself to wake that one up, and my X-Men BB.

Of course, I really should be shifting the X-Men BB to top priority, seeing as the rough drafts are due Septemper 26. We'll see how that plan goes, is what I'm thinking.

Well, there's tomorrow, once I'm back at school, and then Monday is Labor Day (for the non-Americans on my flist, it's a holiday for us, so no classes). Let's see if I can get shit done, shall we?

Also, my 'various types of thinking' emoticats tilt their heads. I have Castiel-emoticats. Huh. This was not intentional, no angels were harmed in the making of? Something like that.

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.

Title: Look To The Western Sky
Fandom: Supernatural, implied crossover with the novel Mary, Called Magdalene by Margaret George
Characters: Gabriel, Castiel, mentions of Lucifer, Raphael, Michael, and Zachariah
Summary: Gabriel's departure does not go entirely unnoticed, and a conversation at the edge of Heaven leaves a young angel with a life-changing decision.
Author's Note: This is probably the only SPN fic you'll see from me for a while, except some other Gabriel and Castiel pre-series ones, maybe. I need to do more canon immersion before I can start to AU the actual show, after all.

Oh, and extra points if you can identify what song the title is taken from.

Well, there's an easy solution to that. )

So, I'm back at school, and I'm in a solo room this year. These are the bits of good news.

The bad news? I live right in the pathway of Hurricane Irene. It's getting weaker as it travels, but it's still much stronger than the storms we usually get here. The weird part? Right at this moment it's clearer outside of my window than it's been all day and night, at least judging by how well I can see the city skyline. (More good news, I finally have a neat view!) I'm not sure if this is a good sign or the literal calm before the storm, seeing as all reports had the hurricane striking at about this time and going through a good bit of tomorrow. Hoping for the former, honestly expecting the latter.

Now, in terms of fic. I finally threw in the towel where my X-Men BB is concerned; until I have a better idea how exactly to handle parts one and two, I am moving on to write the latter parts, where I actually know what I'm doing. I'm currently writing the epilogue, set in the beginning of X-Men 1. Tudors and Inception are in more or less the same boat, progressing slowly with bursts of inspiration. We'll see what I can do about that. Supernatural... I'm working on the opening oneshot right now and I created a banner for the main story arc.

Anyway, that's where things stand at the moment, so hopefully I'll have some fics for you sometime tomorrow, as my new school year kickoff. *crosses fingers*

Interesting day yesterday, overall. Earthquake, my first real business call... A most untypical Tuesday.

In contrast, Wednesday has been depressingly typical. However, I've given more thought to my eventual SPN fic, and... I've more or less decided screwing around with the latter bit of S6 is going to lead to melodrama however the hell I slice it. But then I thought, if season 5 didn't end how it did, season 6 would have been different. And then I thought of something else, something having a lot to do with my newfound love for brotherly love type of fics between a certain trench-coat-wearing angel and a certain candy-loving runaway archangel.

I've never AUed anything from a thousand years pre-canon before. I feel that, considering my tendency toward creating AUs, I should rectify this. ;) However, if anyone here who is more familiar with SPN than me has some suggestions, I would love to hear them.

In terms of my other work, I'm not giving up on it, not even close. I'm always slow in summer.

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*
