frith_in_thorns: (Webcomics - QC - Hanners maths)
I'm going to participate in NaNoWriMo this year, for the first time, thanks to the encouragement of some of my friends. I'll be doing it as a 'rebel', though, where the goal is to write, rather than a 50,000 word story, 50,000 words of anything. Here is my profile.

Or, in other words, this is where I offload all the fannish commitments I can, since definite daily word count + deadlines = many stories produced! (Hopefully.) So, these are what I'm planning so far:

[livejournal.com profile] sga_santa 
Got my assignment - it's a nice one. No ideas as of yet, but hopefully at least one will show up! Min 1000 words.

[livejournal.com profile] holmestice 
Got my assignment - it consists of pretty much a pairing only, which I guess gives me free rein to write anything I want as a plotline? Min 1000 words.

[livejournal.com profile] polyship 
I'm still filling out my sign-up form, no idea what I'll be asked to write. Min 500 words, max 3,500.

[livejournal.com profile] apocabigbang 
This...is probably a bad idea, but, but, apocalypse fic! It's so hard to resist! And it's a pretty short Big Bang, at min 10,000 words. I haven't signed up to it yet, but I'm quite likely to. I just need to pick a fandom. I'm stuck between Sherlock and Sanctuary. SGA could be interesting. Some part of me wants to do AtLA, but it would feel just too cruel!
Also it has pretty banners.




Anything else I should be doing? *gg*
frith_in_thorns: (BBC Sherlock - Mycroft - umbrella)
Title:  All This Space

Warnings:  Suicide attempt.

Sherlock huddled into the uncomfortable chair with his legs tucked tight against him, and observed.  )
frith_in_thorns: (BBC Sherlock - Mycroft - umbrella)

frith_in_thorns: (BBC Sherlock - Sherlock - half face)
It's occured to me that I probably want to put my Sherlock fics somewhere more permanent than a kink meme. I'm going to post the two that I most like now, and backdate the others so that I don't clog up your flists too much.

Title: Spinning in the Middle of the Air
Prompt: Here. Sherlock isn't fast enough solving a case and something bad happens. He gets high and is comforted/sobered by John.
Word count: 1300
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Drug use, unintentional self-harm
Category: Um. Somewhere between gen and slash? I'm tagging for both, to be annoying.
Notes: Researching this, I was pretty surprised at how many internet forums there are dedicated to telling people how to take hallucinogenic/psycadelic drugs. You learn something new every day.

frith_in_thorns: (BBC Sherlock - Sherlock - violin)
Sooo.. I had my Sherlock rant a few days ago. And now I've already filled four prompts on the [livejournal.com profile] sherlockbbc_fic  kink meme. I'm sure you'll all be shocked to hear that all four of the fills are gen h/c. (At some point I may step way out of my comfort zone and write ship h/c.) Only the five times one has a plot which isn't purely h/c. (And I didn't bother going anon because that confuses me and also then I can't edit for typos).

Actually, I'm not ashamed of this in the least. *gg*

frith_in_thorns: (Writing - fanon is canon)
I actually feel much better about this show since discovering one particular corner of the fandom. Well, not about the fail, but about everything as a whole, if you know what I mean. [livejournal.com profile] sherlockbbc_fic  is a kink meme where the actual kink is vastly outweighed by the h/c and the crack, and people are actually writing the female characters, and going 'what if this male character was a female' and random descents into roleplay, and pointing out the fail instead of brushing it under the rug (SGA fandom, I'm looking at you). Really, finding that this bit of the fandom at least does not consist of fail has made me happy. It's also made me write things.

Several things seem to be passing into fanon very quickly. Specifically, many many references to losing the game, and Anderson having a dinosaur fetish. Yeah, I have no idea...

(Also, I'm sorry I haven't been commenting on peoples' posts much. Will get round to that at some point. RL stuff on at the moment.)
frith_in_thorns: (Writing - Visions and revisions)
I've just finished watching the BBC's Sherlock. And I have some thoughts, so I shall proceed to inflict them on you all.
SPOILERS for all three episodes )
