Fic things

dhampyresa: (A most terrible case of the Star Wars)
I've just realised I forgot to mention a couple of things about Five Seasons in Latveria, the Layla Miller + Doctor Doom gen fic I posted last Saturday. (Honestly, none of the notes I post on here (as opposed to Ao3) are that important, but I do like talking about my writing.)

Ilinca makes an appearance in this fic, she last appeared on Doctor Doom's staff in Retrograde (also featuring Layla Miller). I have some headcanons and backstory for her, but nothing set in stone, mostly she exists to fulfill all my non-Doombot minion related needs.

It also fulfills the "That Moment (incident / chapter / episode) in detail" prompt from this bingo card I got over two years ago you shut up I am on top of things.

Repost of said bingo card )

I'll take prompts if you have them, but no guarantees/some of these are already in progress/etc.

One of these days, I will get better at not getting anxiety about replying to comments on Ao3. Today is not this day.

(I don't know why I thought making a deal with myself about how I had to post a comment on a fic for every comment on my fic I replied to would help matters, but it kind of has? So long as I remember what fics I read when it comes down to comment time -- and I often blank. I am a failboat.)

I do read and appreciate every single comment I get and I will get back to them, even if takes me a while.

I wanted to write a fic about Teal'c watching The Force Awakens (with Vala) for [community profile] starwarsflashmeme 's prompt of "Alien" because Teal'c is canonically a giant Star Wars nerd (who likes the prequel, even) and Finn's arc would speak to him: loyal soldier of galaxy spanning colonising power (Goa'uld/First Order) rebels against said colonising power following a meeting with a scrappy underdog (SG1/Poe) and ends up joining the organisation said underdog is part of (SGC/Resistance) to fight The Good Fight TM.

Vala is there because she wants to know what the fuss is all about.

Alas, I needed to rewatch some Stargate and find a Teal'c voice and it was Eurovision, so it didn't happen. For amnesty, maybe?

I'm back!

What I did while I was away: sleeping, reading, sleeping, blackberry jam, sleeping. Seriously, I must have slept something like fifteen hours a day? 15 hours a night + 3 hours of siesta = 15 hours. I don't understand why I'm still tired. HOW?!

I also did a lot of reading. I finished a bunch of things, averaging about one a day, although a lot of it was comics and BDs, details forthcoming.

I did not finish Ghost of Cannae, because I am very very bad at reading non-fiction. I just keep stopping and highlighting bits and going "I need to put this aside for a bit while I think about it". I do this with everything! Whether it's Ghosts of Cannae or Rome's Revolution or Trickster Makes This World, every time I read non-fiction I end up highlighting at least one thing on every page. And we're talking ebook pages with a bigger-than-average size font, here. (Y'all should see what my paper copy of Métronome looks like. So many post-its!) Idk whether it's because I'm very very stupid or the books are very very interesting or something else, but I end up having to read tiny chunks at the time if I want to process things properly.

Also, I apparently became a "great historical specialist" ("la grande spécialiste historique Dhampyresa") while I was away, so that's nice. Where can I collect my award? (Just kidding. I ordered Le Graal de l'InfraMonde already. I was looking for info on when Book 3 was coming out, which is TBD.)

Also also, I was tired of feeling like I'd written fuck all since July started, so I wrote a fic on the train back.

House Rules (1111 words) by sevenofspade
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Ancient History RPF
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Scipio Africanus/Hannibal Barca
Characters: Scipio Africanus, Hannibal Barca, Gaius Laelius
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - College/University
Summary: Game night is more interesting than Scipio first thought.

Basically, there was a bunch of people trying to play 7wonders (excellent game, btw, would totally reccomend) and a girl reading Kid Paddle nearby, so I wrote fic in which Hannibal and Scipio bond over playing Ephesus in 7wonders and Max from Kid Paddle is there also. (Untagged, because I find it very dubious that anyone would go looking for Kid Paddle fic on Ao3.)

It also fills the "High School / College AU" prompt of my[community profile] genprompt_bingo card from way back when.Card under the cut )

Hey, does anyone know if I can count fics I didn't explicitly start for the bingo as filling bingo squares? And how much I can stretch the definition of "gen"?
 /fails at bingoes forever

And that brings to 10 both the number of fics I've written in the "Ancient History RPF" fandom and that weren't written for anybody else (out of 39). I'm sure this says something about me. Not sure what, but something.

And now, more sleep.

Remember how I said this was going to be my last Ides of March themed post this year? I lied!

I wrote a fic for [community profile] historyfest and you will be surprised to hear it's not Hannibal/Scipio. No, not even a little.

If at first you don't succeed... (Try. Try again.) (3919 words) by sevenofspade
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Ancient History RPF
Rating: Not Rated

Characters: Mark Antony, Original Female Character(s)
Additional Tags: Time Travel
Gwen's mission is to stop Julius Caesar's assassination in the Senate. Shouldn't be too hard, right?


With that fic, I now have 5 fics of more than 500 words in Ancient History RPF. Given that I also have 5+ works of 500+ words in Marvel 616, that means I'm eligible for Remix Redux in two fandoms. Granted, they are small fandoms, but I've got two of them and I've never been eligible for remix before on account of writing in tiny fandoms and not having a lot of output and I've been wanting to participate in remix for years!

My only regret is how closely the deadlines overlap with the Night on Fic Mountain ones, but this year I have decided to live dangerously, so I think I'll be signing up.

This fic also serves as the "Original Characters" square on this bingo card.

By the by, the fic is kind of a stealth crossover, so if you figure it out, I'll write you a fic, provided I know the fandom and you pick a prompt from the bingo card.

Repost of the bingo card )

Actually, if anyone has any ideas, I'm listening.

I told myself I wasn't going to ask for another [community profile] genprompt_bingo card, since I haven't done anything with the first one yet, but then they introduced the category "8. Titles of Yoko Tsuno Albums" (complete prompt list is here). As I am very predictable, I had to ask for a card and I got one. It's got three (3!) Yoko Tsuno prompts, I'm delighted.

Oaths / Promises Energy Beings Crossover: Books and literary Compare and Contrast Original characters

Les Titans (The Titans) Anthropomorphic Personifications of Abstract Concepts Wild CardThat Moment (incident / chapter / episode) in detail Virtual Reality

Snakes, Serpents and Worms Winners and Losers Wingfic I Walk through the Valley of Death All the Dead Characters are Living Together

This is a pretty great card, methinks. I've got a couple of ideas, but I'm always open to suggestions.

Title: Nameless (on ao3)
Fandom: Ancient History RPF
Characters: Scipio Africanus, Hannibal Barca
Warnings: Chose not to use
Spoilers: Scipio wins at Zama!
Word Count: 623 words
Summary: Everybody is born with a name on their wrist. It's just that nobody knows what the names are for.
Author's Note: Written for [community profile] trope_bingo . I was thinking about the soulmate tatoo trope and the mess it would be in Ancient Rome and what happens if someone changes their name. I thought I could use this to fill the "matchmaker" square on my card, but it fits the "soul bonding / soulmates" trope better, so I guess this is my free space? Idk how to bingo, help.

2 bingos

One of them is a writing bingo and the other is a reading one.

Bingo! )
I've no idea  what to do with either of these. Somebody take this computer away from me.

3 things!

2. I wrote 5 ficlets for [community profile] fandom_stocking . I wanted to draw some things, but I couldn't get them scanned.
