merryghoul: doctor clara hugging (doctor clara hugging)
I've posted my Yuletide letter here (it's backdated). Fandoms: The Bletchley Circle, Call the Midwife, Raven's Home, Preacher (TV), Westworld (TV), Fallen London.

This is, unless I change my mind at the eleventh hour, everything that I'm requesting for Yuletide.
merryghoul: campfire (campfire)
1) Still writing for [community profile] femslashex. Without hinting at what I'm actually writing, I didn't expect to be writing what I'm writing. But it's finally coming together.

2) Already nominated fandoms for Yuletide. I am boring, and I pretty much nominated what I've nominated in the past except for shifting around Fallen London and Preacher (the TV show) characters. I would list what I've nominated somewhere, but apparently at [community profile] yuletide/[ profile] yuletide there isn't a nomination coordination post yet? Huh. Not getting into starting a post at those comms for that, because there has been stupid wank over who should do what posts at those comms, and I don't want a part of it.

3) I've been looking at some of my old fic. Some of it makes me cringe, but with other fics, I see some possibilities not explored when I was, say, trying to get blackouts for these mostly now-dead bingo challenges. I recently republished and edited a Torchwood fic (Gwen/Suzie) I wrote for AU Bingo, Angst Bingo, and the Porn Battle. I took out some of the more attempts to be "lyrical" (because I can't imagine someone suffering from Stockholm syndrome saying "I know I'm suffering from Stockholm syndrome," or something like that) as well as Americanisms (there was an "ass" in the fic when it should've been "arse"). But I still liked the idea of the fic--Gwen still being under the influence of Suzie's gambit from "They Keep Killing Suzie," long after the events of Miracle Day. And I wanted to expand on that fic on what happened to Jack and Rex. So I decided to sign up to [personal profile] spook_me yet again so I can expand on that fic, and I guess Suzie can count as a mad scientist?

tl;dr: I've decided to do Spook Me to expand on an old Torchwood fic. Even if, in 2017, few people will read a non-Jack/Ianto Torchwood fic.

Locked because I don’t want it to appear on Who Daily, as it’s a proclamation of plans. To be safe, if I bork the friends-lock, please don't put this on today's edition, Who Daily Editor of the Day. And, um, yay, writing hiatus over? Until maybe Femslash Exchange and Yuletide?

Now unlocked! But if you're not a fan of discussing race and/or queerness in science fiction, give this post a pass.

The one day I go out on a Saturday and do morning errands, forget to check Dreamwidth for a while, and [community profile] unconventionalcourtship finally opens up for signups.

This year, I'm thinking of something similar to a Harlequin Desire or Harlequin Presents summary. Leaning towards a Harlequin Desire where the plot was originally "billionaire impregnates hotel employee," but that could change, because I think way too much about how fpreg can possibly work and about Me's feelings towards losing her children in canon. The pairing will either be Clara/Me or Missy/River. Although I don't know about a possible Missy/River child. Different, yes, but I don't know if it's my kind of thing or not.

The penultimate episode of this series of Doctor Who made me change my plans entirely! Read here.

I don't know how many people still actively use Delicious at this point, since it's been sold and mismanaged by so many people. But the guy who runs Pinboard bought Delicious (seriously), and he's announced Delicious will be in read-only mode on June 15. That means you can't save bookmarks to Delicious, but you can read your Delicious bookmarks or read other Delicious bookmarks on other accounts.

The guy who runs Pinboard is promising to fix the export link to Delicious if you want to save your Delicious bookmarks elsewhere. He's also offering the opportunity to purchase a Delicious account, which is now $11 a year (if you didn't purchase a Pinboard account before there was a yearly fee applied to accounts).

News here, and also Imzy sent emails to users.

I never really did anything there, ha. I did already crosspost and post to AO3 the one drabble I did for an Imzy comm, so I'm good.

Myself, I'm going to put a note on my Imzy and call it time there.

I should post this now, before it’s too late.

I’m heading towards taking (mostly) a break from fandom for a bit. I don’t want to talk too much about my real life, but I want to focus on my real life for a bit. That and, to be honest, I’m really jaded with TV/book/media fandom at the moment. It’s not a specific person; it’s just me.

Maybe I’ll come back. Maybe I won’t. IDK.

I probably won’t do that review of The Diary of River Song 2 I promised a while back. I will be around to do the [ profile] who_daily newsletter, but that’s it. And I’m also doing Jukebox, mostly because it’s not based on ongoing canons with writers/showrunners/other creators. I do know I want to take the summer off. So no big bangs, summer exchanges, or whatnot for me.
merryghoul: naked river is naked (unexpected naked river)
My Shakespeare quotes table for [community profile] femslashficlets, that is. Various fandoms, various ratings, and some ficlets have been posted here to my journal before (but not all of them are posted here). It can be read by going to my table here or going to the AO3 collection for this table here (where it's easier to figure out the ratings and fandoms for all the ficlets).

merryghoul: arya house of black and white (arya house of black and white)
Since I goofed earlier in my haste to leave the house, but now I am at keyboard, and there's a Yuletide delay, here's a link to the fic I meant to link to earlier, the ASOIAF/GOT one.

Trying out this experiment where I'm reposting a LiveJournal Share dialog to Dreamwidth but changing the HTML for Dreamwidth. Should work, but here goes:

Originally posted by [personal profile] merryghoul at Fic: Where Thou Art Not, Desolation
Title: Where Thou Art Not, Desolation | AO3 | (Dreamwidth)
Author: [personal profile] merryghoul
Fandom: Doctor Who (2005)
Wordcount: 579
Rating: Mature
Characters: Missy, Clara Oswald, Twelfth Doctor
Pairing: Clara Oswald/Missy
Contains: sexual content (the "huddling for warmth trope," pretty much)
Prompt: For [community profile] who_at_50's 53rd anniversary fanwork-a-thon (a work centered around the Master/Missy).
Disclaimer: Characters and trope not my creations.
Summary: Missy sets a trap for the Doctor, but ensnares Clara instead.
merryghoul: fi with flower gun (fi with flower gun)
They're also couple of things I wrote for Fan Flashworks, when I was more active in that comm. I probably won't hurry to add this back to my journal, but I unlocked A Day of Peace (Fiona, mature) on AO3. I also made minor formatting corrections to Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (Fiona, teen).
merryghoul: River saves the doctor (River saves the doctor)
Recently posted River's Detour (River, Explicit) to finish off another Season of Kink bingo. It's actually a drawerfic I meant to use for something else earlier this year, but I shelved it because of personal issues. I spruced it up for Season of Kink, mostly because I couldn't think of anything else to write for the "masturbation" square.
merryghoul: doctor clara hugging (doctor clara hugging)
Friends-locked because I don't want the last fic linked here to appear on Who Daily yet; I think it'd be overkill for today.

My two fics for [community profile] iddyiddybangbang are live. I'm just going to link to my dwfiction entry to link to the two fics on my journal and AO3. (One fic is Clara/Me, the other Twelve/Missy/River, and they're both explicit.)

I've also posted another fic, In the Nude (Clara/Me, teen), mostly to finish up my Season of Kink card, but it's also for a couple of other places. I'll post a header link to the fic to the DW All Sorts comm later today or tomorrow to link to that comm.

Right now, going to fill out a bingo card template for Season of Kink.

* I'll get back to any pinch hits that are open this weekend. I know there were a lot of last-minute pinch hits earlier this week, especially for Rare Pair Fest, but I couldn't promote them as soon as they came out.
* Not sure if I'm doing this round or not, mostly because of some bingo challenges and exchanges happening soon or happening right now. (Along with some RL stuff.) But [community profile] ladiesbingo has just opened signups, and it'll be running until March of next year. I encourage those that like writing about women to sign up.
* I'm the special reccer at [ profile] het_reccers this month; my first post is here. I have 22 recs planned, but I might have more if I see things I've liked and recced before, but for other things. (Like maybe around 30, not, like, near 300.)
* Some time this weekend, if not today, I'll be capping off a [community profile] hc_bingo bingo with a rec list, because I don't feel like I have a canon I can really focus on writing "substance abuse" on well at the moment.
