dhampyresa: (that's high profile)
I'd been feeling like I wasn't goth enough for a while, but this feeling is gone since this morning.

I had a really weird dream last night in which I was, for some obscure reason, taking part in a baking show presided over/judged by the Raven Queen, the Goddess of Death in Critical Role (and DnD -- but this was definitely a Critical Role thing). Then I blew my fuse because we were supposed to cook with unsalted butter and WHAT KIND OF HERETIC etc. I'm pretty sure I was overdoing it to gum up the works for some reason? But in any case, shouting at the Raven Queen made me level up, so obviously I took that level in Goth, which she thought was hilarious, appropriate and well-deserved.

Clearly I am goth enough. The dream argument I had with a death goddess over baking ingredient says so.


Also, I finally wrote prompts for my yuletide letter. Sorry for the delay to anyone waiting on it.

I'll do the linking in appropriate places tomorrow.

Thank you for writing for me! I'm sure whatever you write me will be wonderful.

Feel free to poke around this journal or my Ao3 account (username: [archiveofourown.org profile] sevenofspade ) if you want to. My letters tag is here.

I have six Do Not Wants: allegory/metaphor of real world politics, incest, rape, child abuse, character death and dysphoria. When these are canon, please don't focus on them. I would also prefer not to have to deal with people losing things important to them and toxic living arrangements, be that family or roomates. Thank you.

On the other hand, there are a lot of things I do want. Here’s a partial list. (I obviously don’t expect you to stick all of these in one story, that would be impossible.)

General likes )

Feel free to take prompts in whichever direction you like! And if none of my prompts work for you, then write whatever you want -- I'll be happy with anything.

[Prompts to be expanded as soon as I can.]
[EDIT OCTOBER 15: Prompts added. Sorry for the delay.]


Campaign (Podcast) (Bacta (Star Wars: Campaign Podcast), Lyntel'luroon (Campaign), Tamlin Jorun)

Short version: Teenage clone dad, action archeologist aunt, Force sensitive five year old who is also a noir PI. Gen adventures!

Long version:
The canon: This is a podcast set in the Star Wars universe, about five years after Revenge of the Sith. It's actual play, meaning that you listen to a bunch of people play the Star Wars RPG. Each episode is about an hour. The story follows the crew of the Mynock as they flee the Empire and attempt to raise a Force-sensitive five year old. It's free online here.

The prompts: I love everything about these three. Tamlin narrating à la noir movie outloud is AMAZING and I wish it showed up more. More archeology adventures funtimes with Lyn! With her teaching Tamlin maths, why not teach him archeology as well? And you know Bacta is going to need to teach the kid how to use a lightsaber. How did Bacta end up in that prison in the prologue? I would love to hear about the three of them working on an episode of their podcast.


Cleverman (Alinta West, Latani (Cleverman) )

Short version: Teen girls on the run for the dad of one of them. I ship them. Please let them be happy.

Long version:
The canon: Cleverman is an Australian TV show. It currenly has two seasons of 6 episodes each, with episodes being around 50 minutes. The story is set in an alternatr Australia, in which the Hairy people became known sometime back. This has caused racial tensions and the creation of a Zone by the Australian government to park Hairy people in and genetic screening. Also, there are ghosts and superpowers!

The prompts: I'd love futurefic where everything is okay and they're happy, either because the government got its shit together ethics-wise or because the two of them made it out somewhere. Maybe an AU in which things never went wrong. Angst related to the fact that Alinta's dad is the one hunting Latani's people would be great or about how Alinta sacrificed her freedom for Latani.


Locke & Key (Any of: Jackie Veda, Kinsey Locke, Lucas "Dodge" Caravaggio )

Short version: Two teens and the eldritch horror one of them dated. Worldbuilding.

Long version:
The canon: This is a finished horror comic. It has 37 issues, collected in 6 tpbs. Following the brutal murder of the father, the family moves back to his childhood home, Keyhouse, in Lovecraft, Massachusetts. To say more would spoil it. It goes through a bunch of different kinds of horror as it makes it way through the intricate plot.

The prompts: I would love worldbuilding fic and if you have to go canon-divergent AU or future!fic or past!fic (is that a thing? It should be a thing) to do it, then go right ahead. I would love fic that explore more mundane uses for the Keys or explains what this-or-that Key that never got used in canon does. Or make up an entirely new one! Or write about the Lovecraft psychiatrist (because SO MUCH THERAPY is needed, by pretty much everyone at every point) that somehow everyone tells the truth to and so has to deal with Lovecraftian terrors on their couch. An AU in which they use the Keys to be superheroes!


Marvel Secret Wars Battleworlds (Victor von Doom | God-Emperor Doom, Valeria Richards | Head of the Foundation)

Short version: A mad scientist who became a god and his daughter who is a science genius. SCIENCE! Worldbuilding.

Long version:
The canon: The nine issues miniseries from 2015 about the time the entire Marvel multiverse got destroyed and Doctor Doom made himself a god by saving what he could and turning into a patchwork universe, Battleworld.

The prompts: Anything expanding on Doom and Valeria and/or God Emperor and Head of the Foundation would be great. I also like Susan and Strange a lot, so you're welcome to include them. And of course worldbuilding would be AMAZING. There are hints Valeria knows something's off even before the ship crashes. Maybe she confronts Doom over it and things go differently? Future fic in which Battleworld remained and Doom gives Valeria the God Emperor/Ruler of Battleworld mantle.


Punic Wars RPF (Hannibal Barca (Punic Wars RPF), Publius Cornelius Scipio Africanus Maior (Punic Wars RPF) )

Short version: Ancient Mediterranean generals! I ship them. Please let them be happy.

Long version:
The canon: The Second Punic War is a war that is full to the brim with feats of badassery (the Crossing of the Alps, Cannae, the fall of Carthago Nova) and things ridiculous, yet epic (Archimedes' death lasers). There's a movie starring Alexander Siddig as Hannibal for the war itself and Extra Credit: Extra History: The Punic Wars for the war and some more context, both before and after. Polybius can be found on Project Gutenberg, Perseus and Wikisource, as can Livy.

The prompts: An AU in which they're somehow on the same side (whichever). The Pun-ic War (I LIKE PUNS OK). IN SPAAAAAAAAAACE AU. Hannibal wins AU. He's a Carthaginian general sworn never to be a friend to Rome, he's a Roman general trying to avenge his father's death by Carthaginians, TOGETHER THEY FIGHT CRIME. I ship them, but you can totally go gen or with other ships instead, idc. Hannibal/Maharbal? Yes. Aemilia/Scipio? Also there. Ditto Aemilia/Scipio/Hannibal.



Unbelievable Gwenpool (Gwen Poole (Unbelievable Gwenpool) )

Short version: Girl transported to her favourite fictional universe who became a superhero! I ship her with Sarah (Terrible Eye). Friendship fic.

Long version:
The canon: A mostly self-contained Marvel comic about a girl from a world much like outs who got transported into her comics. She models herself after the most popular character, Deadpool -- the only way not to die is to set herself up as a main character, because everyone else is just cannon fodder, right? And then she makes friends with a bunch of misfits.

The prompts: Team fic! Friendship fic! Mostly here for friendships and shenanigans, honestly. If I ship Gwen with anyone, it's with Sarah, but friendship between them is also supercool! Maybe bonding with Vincent the Doombot? What about exploring one of the weird holidays in that one issue? What about Gwen's early days? How did she meet Ronnie? Futurefic! Maybe they save the world!


Thank you so much for writing for me!

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

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.

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.

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.

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.)

You know what? I'm also going to consider this one canon.



Speaking of Star Wars! I still haven't seen Rogue One.

SOMEONE ELSE WROTE ME WANDA FINDING HERSELF (with a side order of Wanda/Natasha)



I'm watching Fort Boyard.

Like every time I want worldbuilding. It is such a fascinating thing to contemplate worldbuilding for, though! I think I liked it a bit better when there was less worldbuilding on the show, just "here are some immortal tiger headed people with really weird challenges WHO NEVER SPEAK" and what not. (Oh, hey, I could nominate it for yuletide. Note to self: nominate Maîtres des ténèbres, Félindra, Blanche and Rouge in "Fort Boyard" for yuletide.)

Also, I would have loved to be a fly on the wall when the idea for the show got pitched. "Let's refurbish a 19th century sea prison by turning each cell into a gameshow challenge, have candidates collect actual gold coins and do acrobatics in mid-air over live tigers. The tigers are not negotiable."



I edited the post I made about my Great Britain trip this August. (Short version: car no, England yes, still looking for recs.) Basically, I am learning that I know fuck-all about planning month-long trips on my own*. It's starting to take some sort of reasonable form? Maybe? Sort of?

Anyway. Anyone in Great Britain during august want to have a meet-up?


* Look, I can barely manage to motivate myself to go to the Louvre tomorrow, because I haveto go before the crowds and that means waking up early. I want to see the exhibit, but I don't wanna wake up, I am so tired lately. (I'm doing some stuff that takes a lot of time -- I get home ~9PM if I'm lucky --  plus there are emotional upheavals, it's fun times.) I don't wanna anwser that PM even though I should, I don't wanna go the Louvre even though I know I'll love it, I just wanna sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep forever but I cannot. :(

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.

No, seriously, I have. Every time I think it can't get any more awesome, it does.

First there was me managing to write 8 fics, despite everything (including the one I wrote on the plane): 1 assignment, 6 full-length treats and 1 madness treat. (Speaking of which, I will write a fic for anyone who guesses right about which fic(s) I wrote.)

Then there were my yuletide gifts, of which I got A LOT. (Presented here in alphabetical order/grouped by fandom.)

In "Carthaginian mythology" alone, I got three (3!) and to think this was the fandom I thought was the least likely to be written. I got basically every single permuation of the Dido + Tanith relationship possible. I got a fic where Tanith was waiting for Dido to arrive, I got a fic where Tanith followed Dido to Carthage and I got Dido/Tanith femslash. YES.

I got notifs for two (2!) such fics in the main collection. I got Gwen!Hawkeye with MJ!Black Widow and I got Sorcerer Supreme Gwen Stacy on Battleworld.

So that's my yuletide. I got seven (7!) fics and I wrote eight (and all of them have been well-received so far), so yes, I have won yuletide, because not only did I get SO MANY FICS, all the fics I got are amazing.

Dear writer,

Clearly you have excellent taste! Thank you for writing for me. I'm sure whatever you write me will be wonderful. (I may not be able to read and/or comment on your fic right away, but be assured that I will do so at the earliest possible opportunity!)

Feel free to poke around this journal or my Ao3 account (username: sevenofspade) if you want to.

I have three Do Not Wants: incest, rape and child abuse. When these are canon, please don't focus on them. I'd also prefer is you didn't dwell on any suicidal ideation or prolonged descriptions of grief. I would also prefer not to have to deal with people losing things important to them and toxic living arrangelents, be that family or roomates. Thank you.

On the other hand, there are a lot of things I do want. Here’s a partial list. (I obviously don’t expect you to stick all of these in one story, that would be impossible.)

I will now proceed to go massively TL;DR in your general direction. You can pick and choose from my prompts and if you don't feel like any of them work for you, that's okay too. It's more important to me that you enjoy your yuletide. Besides, I will love anything (ANYTHING!) in these fandoms.

I wrote 750+ words in under an hour today. (I had one more hour to write, but given that that would have been the output for the total time, I ended up misreading my watch and leaving early. I was put out when I found out, let me tell you.)


I'm getting back into being able to draw. Not just put pencil to paper, but actually do things with poses and draping and composition and all those. I still have a long way to go, but I'll keep going. I'll get there eventually, or I won't. The journey is its own reward.


My Yuletide noms are Ancient Carthaginian History and Mythology RPF (Dido | Elissa (Queen of Carthage), Hannibal Barca, Publius Cornelius Scipio Africanus Major, Tanith), Gwen Variants (Marvel Comics Covers) (Gwen Stacy | Dr Gwenge (Secret Wars #3 Gwen Variant Cover), Gwen Stacy | Gwen of Thunder (Thors #1 Gwen Variant Cover), Gwen Stacy | Gweneto (Magneto #19 Gwen Variant Cover), Gwen Stacy | Gwenverine (Old Man Logan #2 Gwen Variant Cover)) and 신의 | Faith | The Great Doctor (Choi Young, Hwasuin, Jang Bin, Yoo Eun Soo).

I feel like that needs some explanation. Not the first one (yeah, nobody's surprised by that one) or even the last one (I need to tell y'all about this show, I swear), but the middle one.

Back in June, Marvel did a set of variant covers featuring Gwen Stacy as various Marvel supers. I'm going to post the ones I nommed, both as covers and in a textless version. (I am so excited to get to read/write in this fandom!)

(I find the differences between the lettered and textless versions really interesting from an artistic standpoint.)


The first book of short stories I remember reading is Garth Nix's Across the Wall. I had skipped the opening novella, already having read it as a standalone book, so to me that book is just "other stories", not "a tale of the Abhorsen and". In that book, there's a bit of introduction to every short story -- why it was written, how it got published, etc... I've missed those introductions in every single short story anthlogy I've read since them (I'm reading one right now).


There are people I'm missing right now who I'm missing so hard it can feel it in my bones.

I'm late, but on the plus side, I'm no longer living in an Edgar Allan Poe story and have found the source of the noise. There was a smoke detector that needed new batteries. It was stuck to the ceiling, above a shelf that blocked it from view. Have had to ask for help from someone taller than me to turn it off. But, hey, at least it's off now. (It seems to have taken my internet with it, though. Dammit, neighbour's wifi! The internet is being denied my brilliance.)

I wrote four fics this yuletide, for a total of 10 132 words, both of which are less than last year, but I'm okay with that. I think I did okay.

Summary: Prank wars at the Office of Pure Empirical Science!

This was my assignment and it was such an absolute joy to write! I've had the basic idea of "prank wars with the X-Club" for ages and when it turned out that my recipient loved pretty much everything I did about canon, I figured it was time to write it. Except I had no idea what the pranks where going to be and here I drew a lot on their letter for ideas. I couldn't quite fit everything in or fit it in perfectly, but I'm still really proud of what I came up with. The hardest part was probably finding quotes that could work, ngl. I also enjoyed coming up with a lot of the background details as ways of showing friendship/closeness between Kavita and some of the other characters (sharing food and drink with Jeffries, her certainty that Danger wouldn't drop her, her having seen the numbers on the inside of Magneto's arm, asking Illyana for help, Rogue helping her pull off a prank, etc). I like it when there's more to the story than just what's on the page.

Summary: Becoming Augustus Mayerling is a process.

The first treat I wrote this year! I went a little outside of the prompt, seeing as it probably referred to the beginning of Madeleine and Augustus' relationship and instead I made it about the beginning of Augustus as a person. It's not as polished it could have been, but I did manage to pull a trick I like to do, sometimes, where most of the dialogue is indirect and only specific lines/people get direct dialogue. It's no coincidence that the only actual line of dialogue in the fic is "Augustus." (I briefly considered referencing Joan of Arc or le Chevalier d'Eon on top of La Maupin, but then I decided I was being French enough.) A lot of people seem to have picked up on despite what France might think, the world is bigger than France, too. It's totally my favourite line from that fic.

I think this one can be read without canon knowledge, but in any case, here's the song it was based on.

I had great fun writing this! I really enjoyed writing Paladin, her snark and her naming herself after a D&D character class. (Hey, it worked for Rogue.) Writing Overseer without once referencing gender was fun. In retrospect, the hand eyes might be inspired a bit by a plot point from Masqué (aka the "nearfuture Paris does superheroes" comic, as opposed to "WW2 Paris does superheroes" which is La Brigade Chimérique) but only insofar as what they look like. Their power is quite different and besides, hand eyes have been a thing for a while. Wasn't there some in Pan's Labyrinth? I really like A 'is Paladin going to lose her fucking shit in the next twenty minutes?' dog. as a line.

Summary: Dead, mortal and gone, the gods went and left behind the world.

Canon knowledge for this one is also unnecessary.

I wrote this for my main recipient last year, because their prompt was something I'd often wondered about the song myself. It's also the story where I had to retype about 2/3 of it because I done fucked up, but I like it despite (because?) of that. It ended up more mythic than I first thought it would, but I really like the picture that's created by the juxtaposition of the mythic segments and the interrogation transcript. There's a running theme throughout of Sea laughing. It's somewhat of a remix/retelling of the story of the city of Ys and the worldbuilding is definitely based on the traditional breton conception of the world, in particular with "Sea. Wind. Earth. What more do you need to make a world? Nothing." (those three elements are what the three branches of the triskell stand for, btw. Sea's the wave-like one, Air's the top one and Earth's the last one, if memory serves).

Overall, I had a great time on the writing side of this yuletide and have I told y'all about the amazing amazing AMAZING fic I got as a gift?

Fave RL family reunion moment from today was when everyone dropped everything to watch the chariot race from Ben Hur in remastered colour. The cat hit the remote and there Ben Hur was on the TV, so of course we watched Ben Hur. It looked seriously amazing. the dubbing was shite, but as the chariot is entirely wordless *shrugs*.

(Perennial favourite is giving gifts. I'm usually the one that has to pick up gifts and give them to whoever they're addressed to. It's awesome and I love it, which is why I'm the one doing it.)

Second fave moment was the discussion me and my brother had on Hannibal's military campaigns in Italy, which brings me to yuletide itself.

I got the most amazing gift fic and everyone should read it. EVERYONE. It is so great!

IT IS AMAZING. I'm grinning like an idiot and going "omg omg yay yay yay" every five seconds and I keep re-reading it. I don't know who the author is, but clearly they are the best.


As for me, I wrote four fics: one main assignment and three treats. I might have managed more treats if I hadn't lost all the text for one of them once I was almost done and if I hadn't been so violently sick after dinner yesterday that I didn't even manage to get back to my place. Still, I think I did okay. All the recips seem to like them, at any rate. And, uhm, if anyone guesses which fics are mine, you will win... a prize? Idk.

And now I'm off to visit more family, in the Land of No Internet (except uphill, both ways, if the wind's right. There might be snow).

dhampyresa: (Epic shit happening on the internet)
Dear writer,

Clearly you have excellent taste! Thank you for writing for me. I'm sure whatever you write me will be wonderful.

I have exactly three DNWs: child abuse, incest and underage. Stay away from these three and everything else if fair game.

Feel free to poke around this journal or my Ao3 account (username: sevenofspade) if you want to.

I will now proceed to go massively TL;DR in your general direction. You can pick and choose from my prompts and if you don't feel like any of them work for you, that's okay too. It's more important to me that you enjoy your yuletide. Besides, I will love anything (ANYTHING!) in these fandoms.

I usually prefer hopeful fics and I'm not really looking for porn, but if either of these are what you want to write, please go for it. I like plot more than introspection, but don't sweat it. If any prompts look like they go against these, go with the prompts. Anything you write for me will be lovely.

As far as I'm concerned, you can never go wrong with friendship fic. I do not even care if the people have met in canon or not. Just stick them on a roadtrip or whatever else and have them become friends, possibly against their will, and I will be happy. Seriously. "Friendships in unlikely places" are like catnip to me.

Other things I like are:
- Femslash, gen, het, poly and slash! I'm honestly not difficult. Most of my prompts are gen, but if you want to take them in a shippy direction, go right ahead! I've pointed out ships I ship, but if you ship something else, I'll gladly read it. I tend to ship ALL THE SHIPS.
- Canon-divergent AUs! Allllllll the “WHAT IF” fics. ALL OF THEM.
- Dinosaurs! I don't feel like I should have to justify my love of dinos. T-Rex, velociraptor, triceratops, plesiosaurus, stegosaurus, it's all good to me. Because DINOSAURS.
- Fandom AUs! Or better yet, fandom not!AUs, in which the canon is exactly the same, except everyone's in fandom!
- Identity porn! When someone (or several people) have secret identities (fannish, superheroic, all of the above, etc) and their interactions change depending on who's presenting as what at any given time.
- IN SPAAAAAAAAACE! Like canon, but IN SPACE.
- People on opposite side who care about each other! Whether it's enemies-turned-(grudging)-friends or friends-turned-(grudging)-enemies or any other variation on this theme, I love this trope very dearly.
- Superpowers! Someone gets merged with Kree DNA or is a mutant or is the ambassadors of the Amazons.
- Timetravel! I love all the kinds of timetravel. The ones that create paradoxes and the ones that don't; the ones that are stable and the ones that aren't; the ones with alternate pasts/presents/futures and all the rest. Just. All the timetravel, yeah?
- Worldbuilding! Fuck yeah, worldbuilding. Tell me everything about a tiny (or not so tiny) canon detail. Show the parts of the world the canon never goes to. TELL ME ABOUT THE STORIES THEY TELL IN THAT UNIVERSE. (Seriously. Rewrite canon as a legend from that universe, that would be amazing.)

There be spoilers and walls of text beyond this point. I want you to know that I love, love, love all of these fandoms and would be utterly delighted to get fic for any of them.

 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.)

I kind of run out of steam in places there, sorry about that! But I legit love all of these, so have as much fun as you can writing, I know I'm going to love reading it ♥.
dhampyresa: (Gwen Stacy)
And I claim full credit.

[livejournal.com profile] dudski has a very nice and detailed post about every step of the whole thing. I never thought I'd ever be mentionned in anything ressembling a wank report, but this makes me look like a hero coming in after the last minute to save the day so I'm okay with it.

It's true that Gwen was announced as being back in in answer to my comment, but I think if had been anyone else making that comment, the result would have been the same.

I hesitated to post it, because I didn't want to impose. Then they kept replying to other inquiries. So I posted. Between the moment I started my comment and the moment I posted, an offer to include characters missing from nominations was made. I came back to edit it in into my comment and change my icon to my Gwen Stacy icon (in case anyone was curious what the edit was).

Then I wandered away, because I didn't expect a reply at all, much less a positive one.

In all honesty, I was resigned to Gwen not making it in this year. I just wanted to show people, when they'd be looking back on this years from now (because you know they will), that Gwen Stacy fans weren't making unreasonable demands.

As a result of me walking away from the computer, yuletide-coal reacted to Gwen getting in faster than I did. (Also, I love that this thread is just above the previous.)

That's pretty much how the end of it unfolded from my point of view. I'm just really glad Gwen got in, you guys! And I can now add wanker defender of justice on my LJ CV, so there is that.

Also, I'm naming my new PC Gwen, because since I'm transferring all the memory, it will essentially be the same PC with a different casing and if this yuletide has told me anything it's that "same memory =/= same person", apparently.

In conclusion: GWEN ♥!

(Sorry if this post shows up twice, LJ's being weird.)
