I wrote six fics for yuletide, including my assignment and a pinch-hit.

Fandom: Angela (Marvel Comics)

Summary:

TO-DO LIST:
1. Try to find Angela's mother.
2. Try to locate the lost Furnace of the Hierophants.
3. Declare War on the Queendom of Heven.

Sera and Angela work on #2.

This was my assignment. I didn't start writing until late in the exchange period, because I was waiting for the letter to update. Especially since I regretting offering this fandom as soon as sign-ups closed, on account of not having a back-up plan in case of no prompt. I canon-reviewed and came up with semi-plotty (sort of shippy) gen post-canon fic. I have no idea if my recip is familiar with Fear Itself as an event (pro tip for people requesting franchises in exchanges: specify which parts you're familiar with), but hopefully the plot point in the fic that rests on that is explained well enough in text. I'm mostly happy with this fic, even if it's a bit rushed.

Summary: The Alps were full of dangers.

This was my pinch-hit. DHAMPYRESA, WRITING ABOUT THE SECOND PUNIC WAR? MORE LIKELY THAN YOU THINK! I only realised late that there's a thing in this that is similar to a scene in Mulan. Oops? Also featuring important science fact: Flour is an explosive substance.


Treats, in posting order.

Summary:

After Johnny Storm's rebellion, Stephen Strange and God-Emperor Doom had a talk.


I decided pretty early on that, by hook or by crook, there was going to be a Secret Wars fic in yuletide this year. Because Reasons. So I wrote this fic. I wish I could have written a Strange/Doom fic, because I couldn't find time to reread Triumph and Torment, which is where most of my Strange/Doom feelings come from. I'm quite happy with this, anyway. My recip had great prompts! I tried to use as much of them as I could.

Khany waited. Yoko visited.


It took me years, but I finally wrote some Yoko/Khany! This was really hard for me to write because writing fic for a canon in French is weird. But I did it and I quite like how this turned out. Femslash IN SPACE with some alien worldbuilding!

Pretty much last minute treat -- you can tell because it draws on this year's holiday annual. Gwenpool is a great comic. A++, definitely reccomend. Team of misfits celebrates ridiculous holiday!


General note: I don't write treats I'm finished with my assignment in exchanges, which really fucked me over, time-wise, this year. Everything ended up kind of rushed, but I figured "rushed treat > no treat".

(I do regret that I couldn't finish the fic I had started for [personal profile] nomadicwriter in time for yuletide -- I have a finished draft now, but alas, too late, except for NYR --, but I burned out. Am still burned out, tbh. I wish [community profile] fandom_stocking had reveals mid-to-late January instead of early Jan.)
dhampyresa: (A most terrible case of the Star Wars)
I have returned and have posted fic.

Six fics, some I posted a while back and forgot to talk about here (first two), two I posted before travelling but stuck into the Anonymous collection until now (next two) and two I just posted, because I just titled/finished them (last two).

Additional Tags: Future Fic, IN SPACE!
Summary:


This is a very different Camelot, with spaceships and science and technology the world has never seen.

Xanadu seeks out Merlin.
My fic for [community profile] femmeremix . By sheer coincidence, I had just found this fic a few days before assignments went out. Clearly this was A Sign. The italicised line in the summary is from the original fic and it's such a great image I had to something with it.

Demon Knights actually one of the few Anglophone canons that has a proper Merlin and the fact that he's canonically demonspawn and ages backwards in it is part of why. The bit about him not having a soul now that he's under seven is based on a sort of obscure bit of French folklore than holds the seventh birthday as when children acquire a soul.

Summary: Being a ghost, Anakin thought, was very frustrating.
This fic first suffered Severe Tone Shift Syndrome when Obi-Wan showed up (did you know him and Anakin have issues?), then spent months being literally ten sentences from being done which was incredibly frustrating, but I finally made it work.




And now, sleep.

Like I said previously, I wrote 8 fics for yuletide: 1 assignments, 6 full-length treats and 1 madness treat (presented here more or less in the order in which I wrote them). Now you get to hear me talk about them and be a giant nerd. At length.

Rating: Not Rated

Characters: Loki (Agent of Asgard), Verity Willis
Additional Tags: Post-Canon
Summary: As it turned out, what Loki had meant when he'd said "I need a break. So... Let's skip ahead a bit" was "Let's do yuletide".
As it turned out, what "Let's do yuletide" meant was "Let's spend the end of the world telling stories about stories".
Treat ) totally guessed it was me based on those).

Because I wrote this fic ON THE PLANE. I did everything on that bloody flight, from canon review (canons I could have reviewed from my hard-drive: Agent of Asgard, Spider-Gwen, Mulan) to brainstorming to writing to editing to... Yeah. Everything but post the thing.

You wouldn't know this from the posting date though, because it's dated as one day BEFORE my flight, for reasons of it being a meta joke for it to be posted on the solstice (makes sense if you read the fic). I don't think anyone caught it, but I am ridiculously proud that I thought of this meta reference so now you get to hear about my brilliance.

Loki's feelings about yuletide that prompt Verity's "Wow. You're actually a gigantic sap." are totally my feelings about Yueltide and fic exchanges in general. Whatever, I'm a sap, I own it.

I really like " "I'm the Skald," Loki said. "The mythmaker at the end of everything. The narrator of sinners and sorcerers. The deceiver. The storyteller." " as a line, but my favourite is "There was something ugly in the way Loki said that last word, something twisted and sharp like barbed wire.". I'm quite fond of "a campfire vigil for the internet age" as a phrase.

(Doom actually is signed up for yuletide, but he's changed accounts to one Loki doesn't know about. It's cool, Loki is going to write his old account a fic anyway.)

(Loki is female through most of the fic because of how hot my recip said she was as Goddess of Stories and yeah, I can only agree.)

Yeah, I think this fic turned out really well, given the givens.

dhampyresa: (Default)
It's the first day of the Tour de France and like every year for a couple of years now, I start vaguely yearning to write that "Cass Cain infiltrates the Tour de France to investigate a Red Lantern" fic. The Red Lantern part of that summary is due o the last person in the Tour de France's rankings being called "la lanterne rouge" (ie, "the red lantern"). The Cass Cain part needs, slightly more explaination.

I once mentionned that it is my headcanon that Cass Cain is half-Basque on her father's side and someone suggested Euskatel Euskadi, the all-Basque cycling team (now sadly defunct), should hire her.

Despite what you might think, that eadcanon has a basis in reality.

Night on Fic Mountain is over! On the whole, I enjoyed the experience of modding it and I'd like to do it again next year.

I wrote two fics and got two fics.

First my gifts, because they were both amazing!

your ex-lover is dead by [archiveofourown.org profile] singsongsung (Orphan Black, gen, 2 693 words)
Art (who is an idiot) had been goddamn in love with her.
It's post-canon fic about Art and Sarah and the hole Beth left in both their lives. Read it, it's great. I like the little glimpses of the post-canon world shown in it and all little nods to canon (Tony's in it!).

The Man Who Would Be Caliph by [archiveofourown.org profile] misura (Demon Knights, gen, 715 words)
"It's a - never mind." Al Jabr gestured dismissively. "What you're telling me is that if I assure people I have no desire to be caliph, they will assume that I am lying and that I do, in fact, wish to be caliph. And yet, if I do not, they will assume the exact same thing."
AL JABR! It's fic set in the 30 year timeskip and gives an explanation for why Al Jabr ended up being Caliph. It has to do with science, because, with Al Jabr, of course it does.

As for the fic I wrote:

Two for Joy by [archiveofourown.org profile] sevenofspade (Loki: Agent of Asgard/Journey into Mystery, gen, 3 389 words)
This is a story about Loki. It doesn't feature quite as much lying as you might expect based on that. Verity won't let it.
I wrote this for [livejournal.com profile] snickfic . This is the first time I was assigned to write for someone who had previously written for me. This fic was a blast to write! The structure was the first thing I thought of about it (Verity interrupting the narrator, to be exact) and the story kind of built itself around it, from a bunch of various stuff. The Amber Room comes from the fact that I was listening to a podcast about it at some point, the Treaty of St-Clair-Sur-Epte is the only very obscure I could think of off the top of my head (I have been waiting years to use it in a story. Years.) and then I threw in a bunch of references to the greater Marvel universe and to various popculture things (Star Wars, Frozen, Jurassic Park, for example) that weren't too distracting, hopefully. I really hope that even though the fic acts as a fix-it for JiM there was enough context between the fic and canon that it was understandable without reading JiM.

We built this city on rock 'n' roll by [archiveofourown.org profile] sevenofspade (Sucker Punch (2011), gen, 1 022 words)
The city at the end of the train line burst into flame the first time Araya touched the Moon.
I wrote this for [livejournal.com profile] morbane , because they didn't have any fic written fic written for them, which was a shame because a) they wrote a fic and b) they were the best co-mod my newbie self could have hoped for. Sucker Punch was the only one of their fandoms I could consume and write fic for in the time that was left. I didn't manage to post the fic before we opened the collection, but I posted it, and that's all that matters. It's backstory/worldbuildy fic for one the levels of reality in the movie, because I was really intrigued by their prompt about the city at the end of the train line. (I suspect I was not as stealth an author as I could have been.)

Hi! If you're writing for me, you clearly have excellent taste in media and I will love anything you write for me. I mean that. I'm not picky at all. There are exactly three things I would rather not get as a gift and those things are: incest (including adopted), underage and child abuse. That's it. If that's all you wanted to know, feel free to stop reading now. If you'd like a better idea of my likes and dislikes as well as prompts for various fandoms, keep reading.

 First off, HAPPY NEW YEAR y'all! I hope 2014 is awesome for you.

I got two fics for yuletide: Transverse orientation by perryvic and/or Zaganthi (I honestly have no idea what's up with the authorship of this fic) in the Lucifer (comics) fandom, a reunion fic between Elaine and Lucifer that is pretty great and a treat, The Horsewoman's Tale by skazka ([livejournal.com profile] samgrass ) in the Demon Knights fandom, a fic where Horsewoman and Ystin (+ Al Jabr) tag along with the pilgrims from Canterbury Tales while looking for a weird saint relic. You should all read it, even if you know nothing about Canterbury Tales, because I didn't, but it was utterly awesome anyway.


I wrote 6 fics, in 6 fandoms. I'll do reveals in alphabetical order of fic title since that (coincidentally) puts my main assignment first.

Fandoms are: Norse mythology/Sundown: Whispers of Raganrok, Batgirl v2, Ancient History RPF, Ultimate Comics Spider-Man, Fantastic Four and Demon Knights )

In total, I wrote 13 701 words of fic and almost 2k on those very same fics. (I tend to overthink things and could write many more words on these fics (up to and including full-on DVD commentary), like for all my fics, but I've already bored you enough as it is. Unless you'd like to ask me to.)

Through a fortunate series of events, I temporarily have Internet and am using it to sign up for a fanwork exchange, as you do. Dear author, you're the very best for writing for me and thank you so much!

My previous letters are here and my ao3 account is here.

Please stay away from incest and underage. I tend to prefer plot to introspective character studies. I'm not into PWP, but porn as part of a story doesn't bother me. I really love canon-divergent AUs and crossovers where I am familiar with both/all the canons. I am not a fan of unrelenting grimdark and would rather there was some sort of hopeful ending. However, I don't mind and quite like bittersweet endings. I quite like worldbuilding, so long as it doesn't read like a geology textbook. Mythology/folklore is a great love of mine so if you can work that in somehow, it would be brilliant. Other tropes I like are people on opposite side caring to each other, whether in a platonic or romantic sense (friends-to-enemies or enemies-to-friends are just as good) as is playing ridiculous concepts completely straight to see where it takes you. On the whole, feel free to ignore my babble and write whatever you want.

The fic I got was To Measure by Little Raven. It's about the völva of Norse mythology. I wish it'd been longer, but it's great as it is.

I wrote five fics for a total of 12 732 words.
The fic I wrote (DCU/Marvel 616, Locke & Key, Young Justice, Journey Into Mystery, X-Factor comics) )

Hopefully, I'll be able to put up a rec post later, when RL has died down a bit.
dhampyresa: (This is my life)
Thanks a lot for writing for me! This letter is almost all-comics-all-the-time, because I have a real fondness for comics as a medium. I hope my prompts are good enough but if they aren't or you're just not inspired, feel free to ignore them.

If you have any questions, such as 'can I write your fic in French?' (answer: 'yes') or 'are you familiar with the character of Erda in Wagner's Ring?' (answer: '...I've seen Rheingold and Siegfried, does that count?') or, really anything at all, please contact me.

In general, I prefer plot to introspection and hopeful fics to hopeless ones. I quite like worldbuilding, so long as it doesn't read like a geology textbook. I love love love anything related to mythology and folklore. If you want to write a fic in the styles of the Norse Sagas, or in Kalevalan meter or that reads like a fairytale? I would be delighted. Canon-divergent/what-if AUs are a great love of mine as is time-travel. I also like crossovers where i am familiar with all fandoms involved, so if you want to write one go ahead. PWPs aren't really my thing, but I don't mind porn as part of a story. I'm really more of a gen person but if you want to write femslash or het or poly, feel free. Do stay clear of underage and incest, please.

My ao3 name is sevenofspade. You can poke around my LJ or look at my yuletide letter if you want.
