merryghoul: campfire (campfire)
Day 7

In your own space, create a fanwork. Make a drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. Arts and crafts. Draft a critical essay about a particular media. Put together a picspam or a fanmix. Write a review of a Broadway show, a movie, a concert, a poetry reading, a museum trip, a you-should-be-listening-to-this-band essay. Compose some limericks, haikus, free-form poetry, 5-word stories. Document a particular bit of real person canon. Take some pictures. Draw a stick-figure comic. Create something. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Okay, so I was planning to post this today anyway after writing this before I went to bed. All I did was change a word when I woke up because I felt the word I was using didn't exist when this drabble is set. That said, here is said drabble:

merryghoul: clara under the lake (clara under the lake)
Never mind, I forgot to friends-lock this before today's Who Daily update. Ignore what I had in this first paragraph of the post.

Earlier this year, I posted River's Five, which was supposed to be for [ profile] dw_allsorts. Each chapter corresponded to a different prompt. I burned out on the fic and eventually finished that prompt table I grabbed from that comm with various ficlets and drabbles. My intent was to use parts of the fic for Het Big Bang (which prefers WIPs to not be on AO3 before their archive goes live), but that never materialized.

I decided to repost "River's Five" to AO3, since I've given up on finishing the fic and/or trying to edit what I have into a fic that's mostly made up of the older story. Here's the new link to the fic:

A New Leash on Life )
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.

Wordcount: 3104
Rating: Teen
Characters: Blair Waldorf, Chuck Bass, Dan Humphrey, Serena van der Woodsen, Arthur (Chuck's chauffeur)
Pairing: Chuck Bass/Blair Waldorf
Notes: This fic was for the first year of the now defunct Vacationthon exchange. I wrote this for [ profile] flipflop_diva. Yes, that flipflop_diva. Originally posted 11 July 2011. Reuploaded 2 July 2016, to fix spacing issues without going through old Dreamwidth HTML formatting from hell, to fix some SPAG and story errors, and to change the summary, because why the hell not. Although the story is set between seasons two and three, events mentioned in seasons three and four that take place during this time frame are briefly mentioned here. And the title, very much like Gossip Girl episode titles, is a play on Bad Day at Black Rock.
Disclaimer: Sorry, Vacationthon--I'm not adding a serious disclaimer here as opposed to when you were running.
Summary: There are twists and turns in Blair's trip to East Hampton, New York. Not of all of them are physical ones.
