I HAVE THE "UNEXPECTED CONSEQUENCES OF PLANNED SOULBONDING" SQUARE AGAIN

THIS IS A CURSE
frith_in_thorns: I don't have to "agree" to anything. I'm the commander. (W359 Agree)
...I have literally just realised the two sentences in my icon are the wrong way round. It will now really annoy me until I'm motivated enough to remake it, because I don't think I saved a draft copy. (If you are reading this in the future where it in fact starts with "I'm the commander" then please ignore this.)

Anyway! Episode 54 of Wolf 359, was, as promised, A Lot, and I wrote a ridiculously ott-angsty missing scene on the bus because MINKOWSKI AAAAAAAAGH!

Under Control, 500 words. SPOILERS. On the Hephaestus, everything is completely fine.

(I think I'm going to stop posting fic on DW again because I don't think anyone reads it here. Straight to AO3 seems to be the way to go these days.)

Then I realised that it fills the "slaves" square for my hc_bingo card, and therefore I have completed a bingo line! The first time ever I have done so in the actual challenge period rather than scraping in under amnesty.

I will be back before too long with a new bingo card!

ETA: Loooook I got a shiny (and very thematically apt) graphic! :DDDD

frith_in_thorns: (HG Mockingjay paint)
A revelation! I can use art as hc_bingo square fills!

So this is for the "rejection" square on my card.

frith_in_thorns: (AA Zuko)
I know I literally just got a gen_bingo card, but I can't ignore [community profile] hc_bingo! So here it is.


sensory deprivation
blackmail undeserved reputation
deadline / time bomb
hiding an injury / illness
runaways branding ritualized pain / injury resurrection mercy killing
fall from grace archaic medical treatment WILD CARD
septicemia / infected wounds hostile climate
kidnapping witch hunt culture shock loss of job / income rejection
extortion unexpected consequences of planned soulbonding
blood loss forced to participate in illegal / hurtful
activity
slaves



I'm... hmm. It's not bad, but I'm not hugely enthusiastic. Although that might just because I got that bloody soulbonding square yet again.

I could do a lot of these for Simon Illyan though :P
frith_in_thorns: Shadows of the Apt: Taki (Apt Taki)
Oh, and I got a [community profile] hc_bingo card!

caaaard )

I really like this new innovation of being able to completely veto sex-related prompts. I also vetoed bodyswap and genderswap. And I've got a card I really like! In fact, although I was a bit ??? about a couple of my squares on first glance, thinking about more creative interpretations I don't think I've got anything I can't/won't write.

Now I just need some spare brain for writing... I really am making an effort to actually get back into writing and fandom. Please feel free to poke me and feed me prompts. I work best when suffering from social obligation guilt. Sad but true.

(This explains so much about my life, really.)
frith_in_thorns: Sign reading "Really really dangerous don't touch - McKay" (SGA Danger sign)
Card here! )

I've got a pretty nice card this year! Challenging without being off-putting. Now I just need to get my act together and write some fic :)

frith_in_thorns: Better Butter Bugs for a Brighter Barrayar! (V Butter bugs)
It's [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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

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 [livejournal.com 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 )

Title: if you hurry you can still catch the tide

Claiming as the "caught in a robbery" square for my [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo card.

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

frith_in_thorns: October Daye - "An Artificial Night" cover (OD Toby)
I have more fics! Both posted on AO3.

Glittering Bright (Warehouse 13)
Helena/Myka, 1500 words
Written for cosmic_llin in the Holiday Aisle exchange. The prompt was "bonfire night".
Having completed an assignment in England, Helena persuades Myka to come on a date to the local bonfire night celebration with the promise of toffee apples, fireworks, and almost certainly no rogue Artifacts...

May & Quentin, 1100 words
Missing scene for An Artificial Night, written for the "branding" square on my [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo card.
May goes shopping for some clothes of her own. Quentin goes with her.

frith_in_thorns: Unfortunately, you'll also all blow up. (Neal 1)
This fic requires a little explanation. The mechanic used within is adapted from the computer game Bioshock Infinite, purely for my own amusement. Absolutely no knowledge of Bioshock is required to read this fic, and no actual game character or settings are used "on-screen" (this being set some 50-odd years after the canon), but the fic does spoil a couple of the key reveals of the game. If you want a quick overview (and to see the inspiration for this fairly bizarre crossover), I can't recommend this fanvid by [personal profile] violace highly enough.


Title: Laws of Gravity
Author: [personal profile] frith_in_thorns
Characters/Pairings: Neal, Elizabeth, Peter, Mozzie; mostly gen but with various alt-pairings in different sections.

The absolutely STUNNING art is by the amazingly talented [livejournal.com profile] kanarek13. Thank you so much! ♥ (Tell her how awesome it is!)

Summary: When the hood comes off, Neal learns that his kidnapping was masterminded in a different universe altogether, by someone utterly unexpected. And then an accident sends him tumbling between worlds, lost and in freefall…
