Hmmm. I now seem to be writing Sherlock porn, which is a bit of a surprise given how long it is since I wrote anything! Anyone fancy beta-ing? I can only offer gratitude and brit-picking in return...

Fandom: Sherlock
Summary: It takes John six months to realise what happened. It takes a lot longer to deal with it.
Rating: Gen. Sort of pre-slash in a way.
Notes: Err. I seem to have written angsty post-Reichenbach fic. My first fic in this fandom, so usual disclaimers apply. Crit/comments welcome.

It takes six months for John to figure out what happened. )

Title: Same Old Lies
Fandom: Spooks
Notes: Not sure why this is the first thing I've written for ages, but there you go. It's a short missing scene from the end of 7x05. I think it's meaning may be a bit obscure to those who aren't in my head, but you know, writing!

'How did it go?' Lucas asks when she comes back downstairs. )

Seems unlikely to be needed but I've noticed a few people posting this, so figured I might as well do too. I give blanket permission for podficcing, or indeed remixing or any other type of derivative work based on my writing. Feel free - and if anyone does decide to take me up on this, please do link me the rest do I can die of squee :-)

I really wish I could write at the moment. I want to write Spooks, Merlin, even Torchwood, but I can't quite find the words. I know - my life, so hard. I just wish I could find the right words. Maybe I need a new fandom or something - just something to get me moving again. I spend too much time re-reading stuff I wrote a while back and thinking about it. Mostly I like it, but there's always stuff I would change. I don't think it's helping a lot.

Title: Silence
Fandom: SGA
Summary: John and Rodney are held captive and used against each other. Afterwards, Rodney helps John not to talk about it.
Warnings/rating: Non-con.
Notes: I'm not 100% sure how I ended up writing this fic. It started off with me thinking about John being forced into sex somehow and then evolved into thinking about how the hell that could be done and then that got pretty dark pretty quick but somehow I couldn't leave it alone.

John wakes up to find himself on an unfamiliar bed. )

Wow. That's the first really disappointing episode of White Collar I've seen. Right from the point where they basically summarized the pre title sequence for the slow witted *at the end of the pre title sequence* my heart sank. One of the things I love about WC is that it doesn't treat it's viewers like idiots. Usually. Then Neal was SO OOC almost throughout. He wasn't the knly one but he was the worst. Neal just *doesn't* volunteer stuff like that. It was clunky and weird and just... not White Collar. And objectifying Neal and Diana like whoa doesn't hide that fact. I vote to expunge from canon.

Just looked at my fic tag and in the nearly three years I've had this journal, I've posted 37 pieces of fiction. That's actually quite amazing. That's nearly one a month if I'd postsed regularly (actually, it's a lot back in the day when I used to have an office job and a lot less now I work in a school). I am actually getting a pleasant glow of achievement from that thought.
dani_the_girl: (Default)
I was looking at one or two other people's year in review posts and feeling cross with myself for only having published about 2 fic this year and then I looked back at my archive and realised that I had published rather more than that, actually. Not a lot more than that, but still. And I think it's an interesting exercise to look back on so what the hell, I shall indulge myself.

I feel like I'm in a bit of an odd place with writing at the moment. I simply don't have the energy to do much of it and the stories that end up really grabbing me are not the ones I would choose somehow - the SGA fic I'm writing right now is a case in point. I think that one is going to get finished so I won't say too much about it now but the story it's turned out to be is totally not the story I thought it would be when I first conceieved of it, although that's mostly a natural consequence of putting those characters into that situation - as soon as you think about it at all, it's not hot, it's scarring.

What has happened is that I am reading a huge bunch more than I was last year (although not actually commenting a lot which is really bad of me because I know how much I love it when people comment on what I've written). Since last year I've imbibed the complete canon of 3 and a half new fandoms (Spooks, White Collar, SGA and Leverage). I've written Spooks already and will probably write more and I know I'll write White Collar one day, although it probably won't be very popular because it won't be OT3. Still, WC pushes a lot of my buttons in a big way, I just have to figure out how to use that in my writing. I'm reading and loving loads of Inception fic (thanks mostly to [personal profile] aveleh and [personal profile] dodificus) and quite a bit of SGA. I haven't really found the White Collar writer who does it for me yet, but I'm not widely read in the fandom either, so I'm sure that'll come eventually. I also wallowed in X-factor RPF to a degree which I found and still find bizarre, but I loved it. Didn't watch any of the show (can't stand that sort of TV) but loved the fic completely unreasonably.

Anyway. This was going to be a post about what I wrote this year, so I suppose it's appropriate that I've spent so long going on about other stuff :) I'm feeling too tired to actually go and link to the stuff I wrote, but I did go back and read it earlier this afternoon. I was much darker this year - I didn't write anything that could really be called fluffy, and only the Broken Wings crossover from January is really light hearted. I'm not sure why that is really. I enjoyed writing for Spooks and I would like to do some more but S9 has really thrown my mental conception of Lucas out of whack, plus I miss Ros too much at the moment. The SGA thing is really not light hearted either. I should come up with some Merlin plot bunnies for 2011 - Merlin seems like a good place for light heartedness to me.

Have gone back and forward on Spooks this series, but I did like it in the end. It was a much more realistic mental breakdown than they managed to achieve for Adam in the end. For a moment at the end, I thought they were shaping it up for Ruth to be the new Harry, and I still think they might, but we'll see. Also, I maintain that Lucas would never have been able to get away with this shit if Ros had still been on the grid. I miss Ros.

Fandom: Torchwood
Prompt: [livejournal.com profile] fanfic50 #008 Kiss
Summary: Jack's a prisoner on the Valiant, a plaything for the Master. He's not the only one.
Notes: A year that never was fic. I wrote it a long time ago and left it, thinking it wasn't finished. Now I think it was finished, it's just that it's disturbing.

Ianto's eyes are like chips of ice as he stares along the barrel of the revolver. )

If only...

Vids I would make if I knew anything about vidding:
  • Read my mind by Killers - Jack/10 first verse into Jack/Ianto second verse to end.
  • Hey by Red Hot Chili Peppers - White Collar (not sure about this but it gave me really strong images when I was listening earlier. Need to check the lyrics).
  • Slow Cheetah by Red Hot Chili Peppers - Jack Harkness and his land of fucked up ness.
  • Steal my sunshine by Lem - Leverage, with the female voice as Parker and the male as Elliot.

Anyone know how to vid and fancy any of these? Or know of a vid request community, I suppose?

Rating: Gen
Summary: Grief is not simply a state, it's a process.
Prompt: [livejournal.com profile] fanfic50 #01, Finish.
Notes: I started this after the end of the End of Time, when I was spittingly, incadescently angry at what I felt was a cheap throwaway portrayal of Jack after what he'd been through. I wanted to change it into something that meant something. Due to RL, this has taken a long time to write but I'm glad I did finish it. ~1500 words

Jack doesn't attend Ianto's funeral. )

So, the inevitable has happened. Torchwood is back and this time it's in the US, apparently. I just can't see this being anything other than a fail, to be honest. Children of Earth was an amazing bit of TV that I never thought they could pull off and I just can't see how they can possibly move forward from there with those characters in the usual cavalier Torchwood writing fashion where all the consequences are just shut away and ignored. It doesn't help that RTD thought, having finished TW the way he had, that the appropriate farewell to Jack in End of Time was to have him hooking up with a random guy in a bar.

I guess I'm just sad that in order to shed the dead wood, poor quality writers/producers from Dr Who they've had to stick them onto Torchwood. Still, at least now I'll have Who to make up for it.

Oh man! I am almost sorry to have got this [community profile] kink_bingo card. I wish I had time to write something for every one of these squares.

Listening to the intro Start the Week this week, they had someone on from Granta to talk about writing sex. I didn't get to listen to the segment, unfortunately, but I'd be surprised if it's better than this and the references it links to - http://synecdochic.dreamwidth.org/108469.html. One of the major reasons I only ever picked up one of the BSFAs writers mags was that it was about writing sex and most of the pointers were kind of laughable. I guess it's a service there for people who're not on the internet yet.
dani_the_girl: (Default)
Gosh, people are nice and helpful around here! And I do mean that in a genuinely sincere way - even typing it, it looks unfortunately sarcastic. Thanks to all the people who responded to the archiving post, and to whoever posted it to other forums so more people could come over. I've finally responded to all the comments and now (as with CSS web design) I need to play around with the archive and probably in about 6 months time I'll be declaring it essential.

It shouldn't be surprising that everyone expressed their views in such a sensible and moderate way, should it? It kind of is, though. I guess I am too used to the internet.

Summary: It was practically in the manual - never pass up the opportunity to have something on a colleague. Zoe/Danny
Prompt: Medical play for [community profile] kink_bingo
Notes: I found this quite a difficult kink to write for some reason, and therefore also to judge how successfully I've done it, but it's definitely got something to it.

'I hate being a nurse,' Zoe declared to her wire after what felt like the twentieth patient that day tried to go for a little naughty wink. )

Moving out

Finally done something I've been thinking about for a while, prompted by [personal profile] zorkian and [personal profile] synecdochic's recent posts on the subject - deleted all the non fic content from my LJ and replaced the fic with placeholders. I don't plan to cross post any more but I will post links to new fic in my LJ, same as I would in a community - i.e. a link back to the post on DW to read it. This post is being cross posted (for fairly obvious reasons) but I'll remove it in a week or two.

I'm still mulling over the archiving stuff - thank you if you replied to that post, BTW - I will be replying to those but I'm still digesting right now. I think it's likely that I'll post some things to AO3 but I'm not sure what yet.
