It's looking like my computer is having a bit a trouble, and around Christmas, too. I fear it might have to go to a repair shop.

I can still do Who Daily because I can code on my tablet, and I already have my last Fic Promptly post made in advance. But I may not be able to do all those Yuletide requests I wanted to do, and I may not fill all those Fandom Stockings I wanted to do. (I have done one, btw.) :(
merryghoul: nucky be teacup (nucky teacup)
My themes will be rare pairings, female characters (the focus will be on characters that are female or identify as female in canon), A Softer World (it'll be similar to, but not exactly like, a Texts from Last Night round), and IN SPACE!!! (canons in space/space AUs/whatever, just put things in space).

The thing is, I don't have my posts for the week ready. I know, it's Thursday, but I don't have my posts for the week ready, and I'm freaking out.

So, starting Monday of next week, I'll be hosting at [community profile] fic_promptly. Come play, if you'd like.

I already posted my [community profile] ladiesbingo card here. I'm confident I'll be sitting out a few winter exchanges, so I picked this card up now, and I'm hoping to take a Trope Bingo card later, if that happens. Hopefully with these bingo cards, I can work up my confidence in writing for new fandoms.

Also, I created a Persephone music and (professional) poetry rec list here, for [livejournal.com profile] insmallpackages.
merryghoul: fi with flower gun (fi with flower gun)
I most likely am not going to be doing any exchanges after Yuletide until shipswap, if that comes back, so I decided to pick up a card and try for a line. (I think I'll also do Trope Bingo, but that'll be it, in terms of bingo challenges. And maybe I'll do Case Story, if that comes back as well.)

merryghoul: car in LA (car)
So, after a year-long hiatus from [community profile] fandom_stocking, I decided to sign up again. My stocking is here.

I'm requesting the following fandoms (there's also pairing information in the stocking itself): American Horror Story: Coven, Burn Notice, Doctor Who (classic), Doctor Who (modern), Elementary, In the Flesh, Luther (BBC), Orphan Black, Scandal, Scorpion, and Torchwood.

I'm also looking for lactose-free or vegan baking recipes, and I would rather get general holiday greetings.

(It's not too late to sign up. And if you know people who are interested, just forward them this link--the sign up post is getting buried under the stockings. Sign ups are still happening until December 13, if you'd like to play!)

now to remember to follow the comm for updates after all the stockings have been posted and aren't cluttering up my friends list
merryghoul: plaza & sunset, LA (plaza & sunset)
Sorry about the slight delay--I was sick, but I am feeling a little bit better.

Here is my [livejournal.com profile] public_call fic:

Gifts are now being slowly revealed on AO3. And guess who has their gift already? It's here, by the way.

(I'll be back when my fic is up sometime in the future.)
merryghoul: john luther (john luther)
So I finished those drabble collections, um...about nine days ago. Instead of linking to them here, I ended up working on my Yuletide fic. And some other things, yeah. Here are the rest of the collections:

  • 2012 Leverage MMOM Drabbles
  • 2012 Burn Notice MMOM Drabbles
  • 2012 Torchwood MMOM Drabbles
  • Alice-Centric MMOM Drabbles, 2012 (Luther, the BBC show)
  • 2012 Gossip Girl MMOM Drabbles

    And now back to Yuletide things, since I elected not to do anything else holiday-related past Public Call for the moment.
  • merryghoul: mike pilot (mike pilot)
    I'm moving several of my drabbles into chaptered works as opposed to separate AO3 works. (It's something that's bothered me for a while; finally, I decided to do it.) This does mean that a lot of links to my earlier works posted here about two years ago won't work.

    While I'm not working on my Yuletide fic, I'm fiddling with my new AO3 drabble collections. Here are the ones that are already done:

  • 2012 Tosh/Suzie Drabbles (Torchwood)
  • Obsession/The Restless Beds (for the Suzanne Costello: Life Is All series; Torchwood/Luther[/Sherlock])
  • Gen Drabbles for tw100 (Torchwood)

    I'm also going to do Torchwood, Burn Notice, and Luther drabble collections for the only time I did [livejournal.com profile] mmom as well.

    With a hat tip to the vigilant [livejournal.com profile] ladydragon76 for all her hard work.

    There's a LJ user, [livejournal.com profile] metapodik, who is scraping posts tagged as "fanfic" or "fanfiction" in some way and posting them as their own on a Wordpress blog (fanfic-journal dot com). metapodik is claiming they have the right to repost fic on their blog. They don't. And to make matters worse, their site has ads. metapodik is profiting off of other peoples' fanfic. (As well as posts tagged "fanfic/fanfiction" that have nothing to do with an actual fic. And yes, the bot is scraping posts tagged fanfic: [word] and fanfiction: [word] tags as well.)

    [livejournal.com profile] ladydragon76 has written a writeup of the mess so far in three journal entries here, here, and here. In her posts are ways to get metapodik to take your stuff off their blog, if it's on their blog, and ways to contact LJ about metapodik, since LJ Abuse can't do anything about fanfic-journal dot com.

    I checked the blog (with an adblocker on) to make sure my work wasn't stolen; it's not. But as an editor of [livejournal.com profile] who_daily, I do recognize some of the works that have been stolen on the Doctor Who tag (http : // fanfic-journal dot com /tag /doctor-who/) of that blog. I'll try to PM people I know offhand that have had their works stolen on the site (that write Doctor Who fic or other fics that I recognize), but if you've used a fanfic/fanfiction tag between March 2011 and now on LJ, you may want to head over to the site and try to get your work taken off the blog.

    ETA: This was first reported on [livejournal.com profile] fanficrants, and here's an additional post from [livejournal.com profile] dreamflower02's blog.

    I just realized I accidentally deleted my unposted Michael/Fiona shipper manifesto while I was clearing my computer of unfinished drafts, RAR files, and TV show warez. I mean, I can put what I deleted back together again, but my head is a bit fuzzy trying to remember the show's TV canon.

    Eh, maybe I'll do a new Michael/Fiona meta, building on the first meta I wrote for them. And I'm actually including some Season 7 stuff for my [community profile] polybigbang fic (I decided it would be a straight-up series fix-it poly fic), so I can go back at what I wrote for that and include it in the new meta.

    I did also manage to put together a fandom guide for the two of them, however, so maybe I'll post that separately on a deadish Burn Notice comm somewhere.

    I've been so busy with my real life and with my [community profile] polybigbang fic that I forgot about it!
