merryghoul: people in chairs on snow (people in chairs)
Hi, Every Woman creator! I'm [personal profile] merryghoul. I have a few media accounts here and there, but if you want to see what I'm into, you can check out my Pinboard: [ profile] merryghoul.

I'll start with my DNWs. I would like to not see or read about the following:
  • character bashing
  • crossovers
  • excessive whump (what I would call "characters constantly getting hurt")
  • vomitplay
  • high school/college AUs
  • mundane AUs, especially for the sci-fi and fantasy canons I've requested
  • curtainfic/curtainart
  • anything dealing with non-canon impregnation, babies, and/or children (I'm fine with things like Helena being pregnant in Orphan Black, or Fiona raising Charlie in Burn Notice)
  • fics written in the second person
  • works based around songs

    For this exchange, I'm requesting fanart and fanfic!

    So here is what I'm requesting this year:

    Fandoms: Orphan Black, Doctor Who (1963 and 2005), Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Luther, The Librarians, Burn Notice, American Horror Story: Hotel, Game of Thrones )
  • merryghoul: River sonic screwdriver comics (Default)

    Currently writing this now, but it's Eleven/River facing off against a (fictional, humanoid) dictator. Some ideas I had for Heroine Big Bang (which I have quit, despite the mod recently appearing to attempt to do a new schedule) as well as (the now deleted) River's Five will be reworked into the story.

    1) Will claim a smaller table at DW All Sorts soon, since I've somehow found myself working on a fic I really should not be working on at the moment. I think that and my Unconventional Courtship fic (seriously-treated crack about Me and Clara having a child and raising it as a Viking) could slot in easily in the table I'm eyeing. Same pairing.

    2) I'm not finishing River's Five, and since I think my plot to my Het Big Bang fic is too similar to River's Five, I'm pulling River's Five off of AO3. (Which means I'll be doing Het Big Bang. Pairing will most likely be Eleven/River again, with the aim to go 25K.)

    3) Eep, haven't linked to my Smut Swap fic yet. Maybe, at this rate, I'll wait until creator reveals? I also did manage to finish my fic for Smut Swap as well, so I'll be linking to that!

    I think these are all my fics from the bangs [ profile] nickygabriel. Locking so at least one of these fics don't accidentally end up on [ profile] torchwood_three. (If not, will add to that list.) Will unlock in a couple of days or so.

    This is an update of where some of these fics are, since a lot of the places I've posted the fics have been deleted.

  • Call a Cab [Torchwood/Luther] (part of the Life is All series), for casestory: LiveJournal (part 1, part 2), AO3, Teaspoon
  • Gelato in the Grove [Burn Notice], for Kid!Fic Big Bang: Dreamwidth, AO3
  • We're the McBrides [Burn Notice], for journeystory: Dreamwidth, AO3
  • merryghoul: River sonic screwdriver comics (Default)
    I haven't seen any notices on the corresponding DW mirrors for [ profile] nickygabriel's big bangs, but on LJ nickygabriel is deleting several of their communities for their bangs. A lot of their bangs that are to be deleted are listed on the profile for kidficstory here (note: the last three are not bangs, and [ profile] marvel_slash isn't owned by nickygabriel).

    Nickygabriel says all of these communities will be deleted on March 24th, so that gives you time to find any fics you need before the comms are shut down.

    I have no idea if this affects the AO3 groups for these bangs as well. All I know is that the big bang comms will be deleted.

    As for me, I may make a list of my fics affected from these closures here, since a lot of links for those bangs are now borked because of either stuff I've deleted or stuff other people have deleted.

    Crossover at least two fandoms, use at least one prompt.

    May or may not do this challenge; we'll see.

    alien abduction protecting / losing precious object backrubs / massages trapped together

    merryghoul: car in LA (car)
    I'm [ profile] merryghoul. If you'd like to read my fic recs of sorts, they're located at [ profile] merryghoul.

    For those passing by: I'm sticking to only offering and requesting fic for this exchange. I won't be asking for art and/or podfic.

    My prompts are pretty much my straight-up interpreations of the songs and videos I'm requesting, but if you do get stuck, here are a list of things I like in fic: casefic, hurt/comfort, noir AUs, fairy tale and/or mythology AUs, angst, fluff, the friends to lovers trope, magical people and worlds, and pretend couples. My favorite kinks include knifeplay, spanking, bondage, begging, and femdom, but don't feel obligated to make the song we match on kinky in any way. Gen or shipfic is fine with any of these prompts with me.

    I don't want the following: characters constantly getting hurt, vomitplay, schmoop, fics in the second person, fics centered on a character's pregnancy, any crossovers with other fandoms.

    I've included YouTube videos and lyrics for everything I'm requesting. I'm based in the US, so if any of these links don't work for you, I apologize in advance. [community profile] jukebox_fest might have some alternative links for videos and/or songs.

    Perfume Genius -- "Queen" (music video) | lyrics

    Is this video about a closeted gay man who goes on an act of rebellion and commits suicide, all while thinking about these different personas that we see in the video? The thoughts of a man about to come out of a closet? Or is this a fantastic world where all these personas exist with the corporate people and cheerleaders seen near the end of the video? Or is it something else? Tell me.

    The Smiths -- "This Charming Man" | lyrics

    Is the narrator from a time where the language used in this song is more common, or is he a man from a more modern time who prefers the language of the past? How does the narrator define his sexuality? How bad is the hillside where the narrator's trapped after his bike tire's gotten a flat? How do the narrator and the man in the luxury car flirt after the man in the luxury car picks him up? Is the narrator convinced to "return the ring" after the man in the luxury car tells him to do so? What happens after the car ride?

    Taylor Swift -- "Bad Blood" (music video) | lyrics

    I feel there are so many directions you can take with this video. Don't be afraid to center on one part of it instead of trying to write a fic for the whole thing. I'd like any story you can come up with for this video. The organization that Catastrophe's a part of--how did it come to be? How and why did Arsyn and Catastrophe partner up, and why did Arsyn betray Catastrophe? How did The Trinity nurse Catastrophe back to health after she was betrayed? And how did The Trinity encourage her to exact revenge on Arsyn? Is she still present in Catastrophe's life after Catastrophe trains to exact revenge? What happens after the video ends? Or what about the other characters in the video? Do whatever you want with the video and/or its lyrics: I'd be delighted to see what you come up with!

    Taylor Swift -- "Wildest Dreams" (music video) | lyrics

    The video tells a story about a relationship that seemingly starts during the filming of a movie. Tell me more about this movie. Tell me more about how the actress falls for the actor, and how the actor led the actress on while they were filming in Africa. Was the biplane a part of the shoot, or was it the actor's? How do the two of them sneak off and go on safari together? What happens after the movie? Where does the actress go? Does the actor try to make amends with the actress? Does she forgive him or not?

    Taylor Swift -- "Out of the Woods" (music video) | lyrics

    Who did the woman lose before the start of the video? How did she initally end up on the beach? What causes her to generate this world? How does she do it? Why do the wolves chase her in the forest? Does she destroy the world she's created throughout the video, and why does she do it? What happens to the woman at the end of the video?

    Bob Dylan -- "I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine" | lyrics

    Where is this singer at, if the singer's able to touch a window and cry by the end of the song? In the singer's dream, what's causing St. Augustine pain? Who are these souls that have been sold, and why is he searching for them? Where are they hiding? How and why did the singer dream of putting St. Augustine to death? (A note: the real St. Augustine was not put to death.)

    Andrew Bayer -- "Superhuman" (music video) | lyrics

    I see the singer and the other man to be lovers in this video, and it seems their relationship has fallen apart. What happened prior to the video that lead up to this experiment? How did the singer and his lover end up in what appears to be an experiment? What is going on with this experiment, and who came up with it? Was his lover even in the building where the experiment was held in the first place?

    I did this instead of working on my Smut Swap fic. Oops? But I'm working on it! It's an ongoing canon, and canon changes. Which means that fic will change. And I promise this is my only entry for this porn battle. Anyway:

  • I'm participating in "River Song Appreciation Week" on Tumblr. I've got five drabbles plotted out for the week; I've already posted three on my Tumblr. I'm also cross-posting the drabbles to [ profile] dw100, and I'll put them all on AO3 and [community profile] dw100 on Saturday. I'll link here as well.
  • I added four chapters to River's Five this week, and I'll add at least one more this week, after I finish my Smut Swap fic. Hoping to be done sometime in April.
  • Waffling on whether I want to do [community profile] intoabar. I want to do only British fandoms if I do it. Like Doctor Who and Luther, Call the Midwife, or Downton Abbey. Although I've never written for Call the Midwife or Downton Abbey. And, with my luck, I'm going to get the most obscure Downton Abbey character, like a character that appeared once during the second series or something.

    Actually that sounds like a commitment? We'll see. Still have to write for Be the First, but I don't think I'll end up writing something super-long.
  • Will also write one fic for the [community profile] pbam Porn Battle Stacks thing for next week. Probably something from my own prompts, ha.
