merryghoul: doctor river wedding (doctor river wedding)
Of course I would forget about this fic just in time to not forward date it so it can possibly be seen on AO3. My luck. But it's live, and I did go through my edits before posting the fic to AO3. Any errors remaining in the fic are my own.

I'm really thinking of doing some sort of pinch hit roundup in the near future, to advertise for pinch hits (outside of Yuletide) for any exchanges I know of that need pinch hits.

I know I don't have the biggest readership here or on Tumblr, but, hey, it's worth a shot to get some pinch hits advertised, yes? I can't do it right now, though, because I'm in a backlog of stuff I should probably get done by noon my time.

The [community profile] remix_me mod's been quiet about reveals, but since the pinch hit I wrote for [ profile] scripsi has been deanoned, and I just noticed this while clearing out my "Marked for Later" history on AO3, I'll go ahead and share the AO3 link.

merryghoul: clara ashildr 2 (clara ashildr 2)

I probably should've hyped up [community profile] iddyiddybangbang earlier here, but now it's closed for signups. Oh well. I've decided to sign on for two fics. I've decided both of them involve remixes of existing fics. One was going to be an original, but my mind just doesn't want to fic the original, which was going to be heavily tropey, and a trope I've kinda covered earlier this year with the same characters, so I'm going another route. That's all I'll say.

Just passing by to show you a rec I was planning to rec during my special reccer stint at [ profile] het_reccers next month, but I decided to offer it up now for their Game of Thrones week, Shelter From the Storm by kungfuwaynewho (Teen, Brienne of Tarth/Jamie Lannister).

And I also offered up a rec at [community profile] bestthingever earlier, Dark and Silent by paynesgrey (Doctor Who, Clara & Twelve, G).
merryghoul: lady me (lady me)
I already posted this on AO3, but for my Seasons of Kink and HC Bingo cards (for the prompts "obscenity" and "dub-con," respectfully), I also wanted to post this here.

This was also written for a mini-fest that's currently being held at [ profile] dw_guestfest, if you'd like to play.

Title: A Season in Amiens
Rating: Mature/R
Word Count: 1228
Characters: Ashildr | Me/original male character
Notes: contains dubious consent, whipping, and implied sexual content

"I once spent a season getting tied up every night by a young monk in a flagellant's monastery in Amiens. We both learned a lot that year." -- Alys (Ashildr), "The Triple Knife"

A brief glimpse into the year Alys spent in the monastery.

I have work to do on all these fanwork indexes, especially with Torchwood and Doctor Who. I think I'll keep my fanwork indexes limited to fandoms I've written a lot in, like 30-40 fics or more, as opposed to fandoms I've only written for in small amounts.

That said, I'll consider, but not promise, a Gossip Girl and a Leverage fanwork index as well.

  • Torchwood
  • Burn Notice
  • Doctor Who (I stopped working on this for reasons only I know)
  • merryghoul: suzie costello (torchwood), text: totally sane person (mini suzie)
    I wanted to promote this ficathon hosted on LJ, since I've just stumbled upon it:


    come have a blast!

    From the ficathon's post:

    This ficathon is for all those fics you always wanted but have never gotten. Shame ships, obscure fandoms, that same prompt you've been shopping at every ficathon since the dawn of time – this is the place for all of that. Get to prompting!

    How do I know what I can and can't prompt?
    I would say pretty much anything and everything goes. There are no prompt police here. We are all outlaws. Any and all fandoms apply!

    How much can I prompt?
    GO HAM.

    I've already left a couple prompts there. (I'd be surprised if anyone wrote them because they're for small and/or dead fandoms.) But feel free to swing by and prompt and fill to your heart's delight, if you'd like!
    merryghoul: helena (helena)
    My first fic in over a year for Orphan Black! I was disillusioned by the fandom and the canon for a bit, but I've returned to writing for it.

    Title: Couples Art Therapy | AO3
    Fandom: Orphan Black
    Wordcount: 569 words
    Rating: Teen
    Character: Alison Hendrix

    merryghoul: river song (river song blue)
    ETA: The editor of Sunday's Who Daily mistakenly put this post in today's newsletter. In no way am I taking credit for my gift below. Putting this note here in case this post doesn't get removed from today's newsletter.

    I think this is the very last gift I never noted in my journal. Maybe I'm wrong and I miscalculated, but I'm sure this is it.

    This was my gift from the first Public Call:

    Measureless to Man (1814 words) by subjunctive
    Chapters: 1/1
    Fandom: Doctor Who (2005)
    Rating: General Audiences
    Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
    Relationships: Eleventh Doctor & Clara Oswin Oswald
    Characters: Clara Oswin Oswald, Eleventh Doctor
    Additional Tags: Episode: s07e08 The Rings of Akhaten, Poetry, hints of Clara/Eleven


    Not all the Doctor's adventures involve life-threatening dangers and life-affirming victories, Clara finds. There are quiet moments, moments just as beautiful, as well.

    sort-of post-ep interlude for "The Rings of Akhaten," set between the time the Doctor and Clara finish their adventure but before he drops her off at home.

    I wrote Hen Night [Eleven/River, Strax, General Audiences] for [ profile] Arien.
    merryghoul: eleven (eleven)

    [community profile] eleventyfest was a ficathon centered around the Eleventh Doctor. The only round was in 2013.

    This was my gift:

    I wrote For the Good of the Earth [Eleven, Ace, General Audiences, not sure why I locked down my journal post here for friends only, but I've unlocked it again] for [personal profile] nonelvis.
    merryghoul: pigeon near the london eye (london pigeon)
    Took a couple days off regarding accounting for past exchange gifts I haven't put up here, but I'm back at it.

    [community profile] sixathon was a ficathon centered on the Sixth Doctor. The last round was held in 2013.

    I did write something for this ficathon, but after the ficathon, I orphaned the work on AO3 and deleted the work from my journal. I prefer not to go further into detail, not in a public post.

    My gift was Apocrypha [Six, Martha, PG-13; unfinished WIP] by [ profile] eve11.
    merryghoul: the knightmare (the knightmare)
