[sticky post] Fic Master Post (Avengers Edition)

Clint/Natasha (Clint & Natalie)
The Weight of Us (Series) (Clint/Natasha)
PG - NC-17 (see individual stories for ratings and warnings)
Because it was more than just Budapest, or Paris, or Moscow, and to call what she owes him - what they owe each other - a "debt" doesn't even begin to cover it. And at the end of the day, after S.H.I.E.L.D., after the Avengers, it's just her, just him, just *them*... and everyone else can go hang.
The Weight of UsCollapse )

Heavy in Your Arms (WIP) (Clint/Natasha, Coulson/the Cellist, Fury/OFC, Bobbi/Maria)
R/NC-17 (violence, language, sex) ~ ??? words
"For every romantic happily-ever-after there were also horror stories of the pain and torment that awaited those who found and lost their soul mate. A favorite trope was the idea of soul mates who were on opposite sides of a line, who chose to kill one another than betray their beliefs or live without their companion, or stories where one's mate was torn from them by the forces of evil - the list of ways it could go south seemed endless." An AU, in which Clint knows all the stories about how it could go wrong. He never expected it to be real, and staring back at him from the other side of his arrow.

Damn it, I keep sitting down to do the budget and the menu/shopping list for the week (WHICH HAS TO BE DONE TONIGHT) and getting side tracked by the prompt-a-thon. Then thinking I should really work on the Pacific Rim AU, only to see my green folder AND REMEMBER THE BUDGET.


Since I'm terrible about eating and schedules on the weekend, lunch was at about 4:30 and dinner won't be until late. (Notice how at 8:38 pm I'm saying "won't be until". Yes, that late. Brian still needs to go to the grocery store first because it's hard to make Dismantled Chicken Cordon Bleu without prosciutto. It's just chicken with cheese and mushrooms w/o the pig. For Brian to go to the grocery store, I need to make the shopping list, and to make the shopping list, I need to make the menu and the budget.

You see where this is going? I do!


Meanwhile, my first Prompt-a-thon offering is up. Have somewhat angsty Hozier-inspired "What If?" fic: I Will Not Ask (and neither should you) C/N, PG, no warnings: AO3 or LJ

In other news... if I start talking about food and cooking (specifically, low-carb/diabetic friendly/whole-food-I-hesitate-to-use-the-word-"paleo"-because-my-inner-and-outer-Anthropologists-both-cringe cooking) is anyone else actually interested? I find that I have no one at all to talk to about these things, and I do not function well in a vacuum. (I've been feeling like that about a lot of things lately, from fandom to cooking to household/planning to work issues. I am not a self-sustaining creature emotionally or psychologically but recent circumstances have put me in that position and I'm... not thriving, let's put it that way.)

Alternately, if anyone else is having major "I too, am a child of the 80's" and other Peter Quill feelings? I'm all over that, too. The more I see the movie and listen to the soundtrack, the more I love him.

Okay. Time for more coffee and some number crunching and hunting up recipes. (Recipes bleh. Have I mentioned I hate cooking? Because I have to do all the cooking these days and "bleh" is my official take on the subject.)

I... Er... Hi?

Arwen (Bleed Myself Dry)

I don't have time for life-update right now, per se (I still exist, sort of?) but I need to know if there's anyone (multiple someones?) out there who are willing to read and give me feedback on stuff for the Be-Compromised Prompt-a-thon? I have... lots of stuff. Ahem. And one of my usual betas is indisposed and the other is going to be spending most of the month in the wilderness where there's no internet or phone service. :(

So... thus far, I've got about 6000 words of a Post-Iron Man 3 C/N, Pepper/Tony, Bruce/Betty fic that definitely needs a look-over, and more stuff coming up. (Including a Pacific Rim AU, possibly a Regency AU, and a kind of AU post-Avengers C/N thing where No One is Coping Well and Steve ends up bartending and bouncing in a tiny little bar on the backroads of Indiana.)

You know. So far. I'm still running through prompts.

Happy Thanksgivukkah!

Clint/Natasha (Purple Forever)
Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Chanukah to everyone out there on my flist! I am very, very thankful to have all of you in my life. :D (And congrats to everyone who participated in and/or won NaNoWriMo this year!)

Have completely unbeta'd C/N soulbond 'verse fic**, and I hope you're having a very merry start to the holiday season!

** by which I mean stress the unbeta'd NaNo-inspired ramblings in this 'verse, which may inadvertently (not so inadvertently) be sweetwatersong's fault, because she wanted more Phil.

Bullet Wounds and Bedtime Stories (PG-13 for language and the aforementioned bullet wounds)Collapse )

Dear Flist...

Clint/Natasha (Purple Forever)
Otherwise known as the font of all knowledge and/or good ideas...

I have a quandry and need help.

I might be writing the sequel to Heavy in Your Arms. (And by "might be" I mean "am". And by "sequel" I mean "every bloody other piece of this universe ever".)

This is presenting some interesting challenges - most notably, the story-telling structure. I didn't end up liking how I did the Interludes last time - in retrospect, they should've been actual in-line chapters of the story, rather than posted as separate shorts. Mea culpa, but I don't want to totally screw up the tracking and stats to go fix it now. I linked all the relevant things just about to death in the author's notes and will have to be content with that.

But I want to get the structure down on the front end with the sequel(s), and would love to have some input from y'all as potential readers. How would you like to have it presented? (I will warn you, I'm not posting as a WIP this time, it'll be multi-chapter but finished beforehand.)

So, options are:

Poll #1944871 Story Structure
Open to: All, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 5

How should the sequels/prequels be set up?

NaNo Snippets

Clint/Natasha (Purple Forever)
I've been a busy, busy girl. I'm working on the sequel(s?) to Heavy in Your Arms for NaNo.

Here, have some snippets of Steve and Bucky angst:

And some Natasha (et. al) in way over their heads:

Text (Oh My Thor!)

Thor (not dumb-as-a-brick Thor, though), Darcy, Jane, and completely-off-his-rocker Eric who doesn't like pants sharing a little attic apartment in London. Oh my god, that is comedy gold.

Also? The fic where Natasha is chasing Clint around trying to get him to put his damn pants back on, and hitting him in the head a lot to try to knock the rest of the crazy out. Because Eric? Does not bode well for Clint, I'm thinking.


And I totally called the end moment in the throne room. TOTALLY CAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLEEEEEDDDD IT.

Am going back to see Thor 2 again today (this time w/ the husband).

Am trying to decide if I should go back and try to rewrite Darcy in my NaNo based on new characterization evidence seen here or not.

I'm going to do my best to get treats done before the weekend is up - but around here at least Halloween has been postponed until tomorrow because of major storms and generally non-trickortreat friendly weather, so I figure that gives me at least a day of grace, right? ;)

Today was... not great, and left me with a kind of gross and heavy feeling that I do not like.

I'm currently at kadollan's house introducing jessofthebugs to "The Voice" and having sweet potato lentil soup and homemade bread and hot apple cider and it's helping. I've started Nora Roberts's latest trilogy, I've finished up my run piloting the Helicarrier over at crack_van, and have a coherent, cohesive story idea for NaNo (WHICH STARTS IN LIKE THREE HOURS YOU GUYS!)

We've pretty much got our regional events nailed down, I almost have my house clean and organized, and the laundry almost caught up. (I know I keep harping on getting your laundry done before NaNo, but seriously guys, it makes a difference! Promise!) I feel like I'm really starting to get my shit back together (it only took, what, a year? years? I don't even know.)

I intend to get up tomorrow, put on my favorite jeans and my NaNoLand tee shirt, pick up my favorite fancy yummy coffee drink, and rock out to Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie (a nov 1 tradition for me) and write the hell out of my NaNo.

So, I'm backed up on replies again (sorry to everyone I haven't gotten back to) - I'm putting more energy into keeping my offline stuff running smoothly in order to get ready for NaNo NEXT WEEK - laundry and housecleaning need to be caught up, and meal plans need to be in place so that the household doesn't fall apart when I dive into a month of offline events, online chat events, not to mention my own writing. Pro tip - if you're running a write-in, you're probably *not* getting much written on your own novel.

So, by the numbers (as it were) - SPOILERS AHOY (for Cap 2, SHIELD, and Haven Season 4) - all for things actually aired to day, I don't know any spoilers about things not aired yet:

Cap 2 TrailerCollapse )

Agents of SHIELDCollapse )

Haven - a rantCollapse )

Ghouls and Ghosts and Goblins, Oh My!

American Witch
In honor of All Hallow’s Eve, I’m inviting trick-or-treaters to my ‘door.’ Comment “trick-or-treat” to this post and…well, you know the drill. Treats can be anything that strikes my fancy (pics of fave actors or pairings, one sentence fics, graphics, a few words why I’m glad to have you on my flist, etc. etc.). The more “houses” to visit the more fun it’ll be, so go ahead, open your journal and help spread the fun!
