frith_in_thorns: (SGA fanfic)
Lots of lovely fics! I signed up as a late-stage pinch-hit, feel free to guess mine.


The Tragedye of Hanevis and Beltanthiar and After, The Goblin Emperor
(Art) The Cetho Dachen Opera presents...

Just This Side of Sanity, White Collar, Diana/Christie
Being married to Diana means dealing with Diana's weird friends. Christie is mostly okay with this. Mostly.

son of kings, daughter of tisrocs, Chronicles of Narnia, Aravis/Cor
Aravis has renounced all else, but she cannot renounce the blood running in her veins. She is born out of the line of Tisrocs and Tarkaans, blood of Calormene rulers who have laid siege to Archenland by means both foul and fair through the ages, and she may not lay claim to Archenland’s heir.

About Damn Time, Stargate Atlantis, OT4
Sheppard never would have thought he would be the one left out of team orgies.

Oblivious, Agent Carter, Jack/Daniel/Peggy
It wasn't matchmaking. He wouldn't be caught dead matchmaking. It was just that having those two idiots giving each other cow-eyed looks across the bullpen was bad for morale. Particularly for his morale. (In which Jack wishes Peggy and Daniel would catch a clue about their mutual pining, while obliviously pining for all he's worth.)

Time And Again, Chronicles of Narnia/Lord of the Rings, Susan/Boromir
The Pevensie Children are in their fourth year of ruling as kings and queens of Narnia the first time that they find the strange boy wandering the battlements of Cair Paravel.

Last Night I Dreamed of Peace, MCU/DCU, Wonder Woman/Winter Soldier
Her first sight of Bucky Barnes is over the barrel of a sniper rifle in the hills to the west of Wroclaw, deep in German-occupied territory. He is young and martial then, frowning slightly as he watches the prison camp in the snowy valley below through the scope of his rifle. Some seventy years later, Diana’s first sight of the Winter Soldier is sitting on a seat of carved stone in a tropical garden in Wakanda, leaning back so the hot sun falls across his body, the rough arm prosthetic a jarring sight in the fluid greenery of the garden.
frith_in_thorns: (.Bookmark leaf)
I am supposed to be asleep, but instead Ellie and I have been accidentally planning out a future-fic sequel to Jill Murphy's The Worst Witch children's book series where Mildred and Maud are grown up and married. It's called The Worst Wife. They have a very loving and happy and catastrophe-filled marriage and are so cute at each other that their friends are all sickened, while being occasionally guilt-stricken and sure that they are The Worst.

Highlights include:

- They invite literally everyone from school to their wedding. Including Miss Hardbroom, whom they are still rather scared of, but obviously it is The Right Thing To Do. HB is completely baffled by being invited and continues being baffled at the Most Chaotic Wedding of the century. All the food gets mixed up, there is loud and cheerful family everywhere, both sets of grannies think they've been chosen to make the wedding cake because neither Mildred nor Maud were capable of saying no to them.

- Miss Cackle drinks sherry through the entire wedding, has a wonderful time, and keeps a framed photo of M&M on her office wall. Surrounded by decorative bats.

- M&M are very dedicated Old Girls and go to all the school events and tell all the current girls about the splendid times they had. HB continues to be confused by this remembrance of events.

- Their house is a complete chaotic mess all the time. Both M&M feel very guilty about this. They are both sure that they are dreadful and not sure at all why their wife puts up with them.

- Whenever friends come over M&M rush around trying to make it sort of habitable and desperately explaining that it doesn't usually look this bad, they've just been really busy lately and they really meant to clear away that magical accident detritus and they can actually be organised and their friends are just like ...No.

- Adventures in married life include When We Were Stuck Outside For Hours Because Our Key Turned Into A Fish. And the fish seemed happy as a fish and they feel bad about wanting to turn it back into a key, and can't bring themselves to do this, and after some convoluted method of Mildred climbing through the second-floor window they keep the fish in a tank and are forever anxious about the cats trying to eat it.

- Adventures also include Let's Make A Lovely Meal And Have A Romantic Evening Together Oh No.

- And also Maud Takes Up Knitting And Encodes Dangerous Sigils Into Her Blankets (before the day is saved by the cats ripping it all up)

- "If you were a bat you'd be the prettiest bat ever," Mildred coos to Maud, right before all their friends try and force them to drink Silencing Potions.

- Adventures In DIY Spells also feature heavily. Mildred especially has big ideas for home decoration.

...None of this is based at all on me and Ellie, why would you think that.
frith_in_thorns: An open black umbrella with small red hearts falling out of it (.Love)
I wrote ANOTHER fic, and I'm kind of scared of this level of productiveness! Either that or [personal profile] philomytha's prompts are magic. I still have one left...

Indirect Authority 1000 words, gen, Simon & Alys, set sometime vaguely within the Miles Errant period.
Very few people have the authority to order Simon Illyan to stop working and get some rest.

I'm using this as my "friendship" square for [community profile] genprompt_bingo to get me off to a good start!
frith_in_thorns: Cordelia Vorkosigan: "Be careful how you aim this woman." (V Cordelia aim)
I wrote some fic for the first time in ages, after feeling super insecure about writing! This is absolutely plotless h/c to get me back in the grove. Thank you to raven, verity and sholio for saying nice things to me, and philomytha for the "huddling for warmth" prompt.

Bitter winter in our bones, 2000 words, gen, Cordelia & Simon (with Cordelia/Aral).
A lightflyer crash leaves Cordelia and Simon stranded.
frith_in_thorns: (SW Rey)
I continue to have lots of feelings about the new Star Wars, especially about Rey. In particular I have an inordinate amount of feelings about her adjusting to her new life with the Resistance. I wrote some of them down and they're on AO3.

Pieces of Yourself (fill for [community profile] starwarsflashmeme prompt Strange New World) 900w, gen, Rey
A small missing scene near the end of the movie. Rey's been given a new home and new clothes, but it feels like she's giving up bits of her old life in exchange.

Background Noise (fandomstocking fic for [personal profile] glinda) 950w, gen, Rey&Finn
"It felt ungrateful to miss Jakku… but at times she did, fiercely. She missed having a place to live that was hers and hers alone, and she missed the wide-open quiet of the desert, and she missed knowing, always, exactly what she should be doing."

New Rules and New Reasons 2000w, gen, Rey&Finn&Leia
For Finn, hoarding resources means severe punishment. For Rey, it's the only way to be sure of survival.

More to come, probably.
frith_in_thorns: Shadows of the Apt: Tynisa (Apt Tynisa)
This is the first bit of fiction I've written for months. It's also the second ever SotA fic to be posted on AO3! ([personal profile] sholio's preceded me by about half an hour.)

Another Way Home
800 words, gen, post-canon reunion fic. (Major spoilers for final book.)
Sometimes children come back.
frith_in_thorns: The city of Atlantis (SGA Atlantis)
Hi guys, I'm on holiday! Well, halfway through it. I have been reading lots of books - The Boy Who Lost Fairyland, which was rather disappointing, Bitterblue and Fire in that order, which works surprisingly well (and the characters are all adorable as ever), one that I'm probably not allowed to talk about but was GREAT, and a smattering of Toby books: Rosemary and Rue, A Local Habitation, The Winter Long. This was actually my first reread of Winter, and it is even more intriguing the second time around. Although, there is really not enough Tybalt h/c. (If you would now guess that Ashes of Honor is my favourite of the series, you would be right.)

I haven't really been doing any writing for ages, though -- I just haven't been in the right mood for it? Which is a bit annoying, because I have several long WIPs as well as my original novel which is neeeeearlly finished, finally. As in, would be finished by now if I could summon up inclination to actually work on it, argh...

Anyway, to try and kickstart my writing brain again, I am taking fic prompts. To be written over the next week and uploaded when the patchy internet access allows.

Preferred: quite specific prompts/scenarios. Not really in the mood for MCU or White Collar right now, due to aforementioned frustrating WIPs (Fallen London AU is fine). Gratuitous Tybalt h/c scenarios greatly welcomed. Well, that always goes for all my favourite characters. You all know me. I'm rambling. Prompt me pls?
frith_in_thorns: Natasha Romanov (MCU Natasha)
I wrote a fic for the MCU halfamoon exchange! You should definitely check out the entire collection; there are really great stories in there, all lady-focused :)

Breakout | 2700 words | Natasha & Darcy friendship/action
Natasha is assigned to mount a rescue from HYRDA. Darcy's glad to meet her.

It's kinda an experiment in writing action scenes, which definitely don't come as easy to me as other stuff.

(Also I'm still fandom-hopping. I'll settle down eventually.)
frith_in_thorns: The city of Atlantis (SGA Atlantis)
Rewatching this show has given me a burning desire to write all the Teyla-POV tags to everything. So here's one for The Storm/The Eye. Thank you [personal profile] sholio for beta-reading!

Burial at Sea Teyla, Rodney, John, Elizabeth; 6700 words
Cleanup, physical and emotional.

She had never had reason to know how the Genii treated their dead )

frith_in_thorns: Unfortunately, you'll also all blow up. (Default)
Organisation note: Somewhere in the process of importing to DW, some of the below links have broken. Also (and mostly) I am REALLY BAD at keeping this post updated. And not all my fics have even been posted to my journal lately. So, reliable places to find each fandom I have written in:

Star Wars (TFA): AO3 tag
October Daye: AO3 tag
White Collar: AO3 tag or this DW tag (less complete list than AO3)
Criminal Minds: FFN or AO3 tag
Stargate Atlantis: this DW tag, or the links below may actually be the most reliable source
Sherlock: this DW tag
CSI: New York: FFN (but a way older account than the CM one!)

I've also written one or two fics in Shadows of the Apt, Vorkosigan, MCU, Star Trek: Voyager, Warehouse 13, Welcome to Night Vale and possibly a couple others that I've forgotten. They're somewhere in my general AO3 pile too.

The series landing page for Free of Surface Ties, the Fallen London/White Collar fusion AU which I've been writing with [personal profile] sholio is here on Dreamwidth or here on AO3.

frith_in_thorns: Diana Berrigan in a winter coat, looking down and smiling (WC Diana)
I wrote a post-finale fic for White Collar!

Ghosts That We Knew 1800 words, Neal&Peter, angstyfloof.

Spoilers, obviously!
frith_in_thorns: Mako Mori with an umbrella above her head in the rain (PR Mako Mori)
Give me an interesting word, a canon, and (if you like) a character. I'll write you a ficlet.

(I guarantee to fill the first five prompts, after that I will still do my best but historically I fail a lot.)
frith_in_thorns: Better Butter Bugs for a Brighter Barrayar! (V Butter bugs)
It's [ profile] hc_bingo signup time again! *does a happy little dance*

Although, hc_bingo is also the thing I'm totally the most embarrassed about having on LJ for my non-fandom friends to see. Like, "heeeey guys, I like you lots and I want you to think I'm cool, please don't judge me too much for my weird narrative kinks!"

Anyway. Card.

My card this year is certainly more challenging! )
frith_in_thorns: Unfortunately, you'll also all blow up. (Neal 1)
Title: Enemies
Characters/Pairing: Mozzie, Neal, Peter; Gen
Rating: T
Word count: 5000
Content Notes: Non-consensual drug use, depictions of anxiety and paranoia
Other Notes: This fills the "tyranny/rebellion" square of my [ profile] hc_bingo card, which is the LAST square. Now I have achieved a blackout and will never need to write hurt/comfort again! Totally.
Thank you to [ profile] sholio for the helpful advice!

Summary: When you can't tell friend from foe, the person to seek help from is the one who trusts nobody.

Mozzie was proud to maintain what he considered to be a healthy level of paranoia )

frith_in_thorns: Unfortunately, you'll also all blow up. (Neal+Peter 1)
Right, this is the thing I am posting for my [ profile] hc_bingo's "accidentally mating for life" square because I still HATE all iterations of that trope and this is literally the closest thing I'm ever going to get to it.

This is a fic snippet from when [ profile] sholio and I accidentally started writing a White Collar AU in which all the characters were Fae. Well, she wrote setup and world building and excellent stuff like that, and then I skipped way ahead because I wanted to write gratuitous hurt/comfort. So when you read this and go "but there's no context, what happened previously?" the answer is that I don't know because never got around making actual plot. Hopefully the h/c will suffice for now.

Relevant background: Neal is Cait Sidhe — a cat fae — and Peter is half Cu Sidhe and half Tuatha De Dannon, so half dog fae and with teleporting powers. Peter is a knight in June's court, and Neal is… Neal. Then plot stuff happened. Neal got shot. The usual.

1000 words, gen.

I can't believe what I'm doing for you, cat )

frith_in_thorns: Diana Berrigan in a winter coat, looking down and smiling (WC Diana)
Title: Caretaking
Characters/Pairing: Diana, Neal, Peter; Gen
Rating: T
Word count: 2000
Content Notes: Vomiting
Other Notes: Yeah, I'm back to writing plotless h/c. This is for the "food poisoning" square on my [ profile] hc_bingo card.

Summary: Having their cover blown was bad enough. Then Diana found she also had to look after Neal.

It wasn't the worst cell Diana had ever been locked in )

frith_in_thorns: A sailing boat, mostly sunk (.Failboat)
Title: if you hurry you can still catch the tide
Characters/Pairing: Kate, Adler, Neal, Fowler; Kate/Neal but mostly gen
Rating: T
Word count: 2,500
Content Notes: Coercion/blackmail (non-sexual). Season 1 AU.
Other Notes: Written for [personal profile] magibrain's prompt on [ profile] collarcorner. Title from a Seanan McGuire song.
Claiming as the "caught in a robbery" square for my [ profile] hc_bingo card.

Summary: Kate is a selkie. Adler stole her skin.

if you hurry you can still catch the tide )
