kangeiko: (acid quill)
What with one thing and another, I haven't written much this year. What I wrote was almost entirely for challenges, exchanges and fundraisers, with the odd little thing thrown in on the side.

Anyway, first up, [livejournal.com profile] yuletide reveal:

A Lie Agreed Upon [Mad Men] for [personal profile] idlerat 
Betty's mom was the one who taught Betty how to do her hair.
This was my assignment, and my first attempt at Mad Men fic. I was quite uncertain about it all the way through, and I'm really grateful to [livejournal.com profile] kristin for kicking it into shape. I ended up writing about Betty almost by default, because I've been reading a lot about second-wave feminism recently, and thinking about perfect-things-that-aren't, Betty's homelife of course being one of those. This is set three months before the first episode, in January 1960.

pirate superheroes (explode things and steal stuff) [Nextwave] for [archiveofourown.org profile] jennova 
How to put together an elite fighting team. With bonus lobsters.
This was a pinch-hit I picked up, and then promptly flailed over. Because it turns out that all the ideas I had for this fandom involved visual mediums, rather than pure text. Many, many thanks to Ferret & Lan for betaing, and additional thanks to [livejournal.com profile] alasdair for providing a much-needed kick-start by telling me all about Gomi and his cybernetic lobsters. (No, srsly, Marvel, WTF?)

a vision softly creeping [Mad Men] for [livejournal.com profile] idlerat 
Midge and Don conduct a business transaction during Blowing Smoke (S4).
So, I completely panicked when writing my main assignment, certain that it just wasn't going to pan out. So I wrote this concurrently, in case A Lie Agreed Upon didn't work out. I'd just seen the episode, and [livejournal.com profile] kristin was a star in getting it to make sense.


On to the rest of the year, in reverse order:

Partita [Sherlock] for [livejournal.com profile] slowascent 
Sometimes John forgot that Sherlock lived in a completely different world.
Written for [livejournal.com profile] help_pakistan after many false starts.

contract negotiations (always open with a 'no') [Pretty Woman]
After they rescue each other, the fairytale relocates to New York.
[livejournal.com profile] queenspanky and I went to see Pretty Woman. This resulted.

Cut Time [The Big Bang Theory]
Penny hobbled home.
A horrid, mean little fic that I couldn't get out of my head until I wrote it all down.

Roses in December [Alias]
Sometimes, when he is feeling particularly masochistic, Jack likes to pretend that Laura really existed.
I wrote this in about half an hour sitting in the reception area of the Sierra Light House hotel in Freetown, before setting off for a week of field visits.

The Gorgoneion (The Epyllionic Remix) [Greek and Roman Mythology] for [personal profile] trascendenza 
This is no heroic verse.
Yeah, epic poetry in iambic pentameter, it nearly killed me. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] athena25 for services above and beyond the call of beta-duty.


kangeiko: (jack/sloane gunpoint)
I knocked this out in about an hour, and it probably shows. :/ But I wanted to do some Alias fic again, and kiss bingo seems like the perfect excuse.

So this is for the prompt body: knees.

Title: Roses in December
Fandom: Alias
Summary: Sometimes, when he is feeling particularly masochistic, Jack likes to pretend that Laura really existed.
kangeiko: (jack/sloane gunpoint)
Title: Method Acting
Summary: Yeah, I have nothing. I don't even know how these things end up on my hard-drive. Victor likes Ron just fine. Sloane's another matter entirely.

Read it here.

Fandom: Alias
Summary: Irina bides her time.

Read it here.

The fic fire sale is progressing nicely, and anyone fancying a fic should stake a claim now. I feel several months' worth of inspiration bubbling to get out. It may end up as diamonds, it may end up as coal. Whatever.

For [livejournal.com profile] __marcelo , Firfley, River at Kaylee and Simon's wedding: Dajin.

For [livejournal.com profile] bluerosefairy , Alias, Jack/Irina, queen: Ode to Normalcy.

For [livejournal.com profile] watergal , Deadwood, Jane/Bill, worship: Blind Faith.

kangeiko: (Default)
I can't sign up for any challenges other than [livejournal.com profile] yuletide . This is for my sanity. BUT. [livejournal.com profile] wingsmith is trying to make sure I write something every week, as this will help with the not!crazy. So, ficlets are on offer for those who fancy something. No real fandom preference, so try your luck with anything I've written before, or any new fandom you'd like me to have a go at. Character/pairing, fandom and prompt of some kind, please.

I wrote some fic a while back for [livejournal.com profile] ninebillion & forgot to cross-post it here, so, for recording purposes -

Feeling a wee bit better, so I'm writing porn. Obviously.

It's for [livejournal.com profile] oxoniensis's porn battle, though, so that's all right. *squirms* OK, I'm not that comfortable writing teh sekks, so I generally... don't. This is another case where I generally... didn't. Hmmm.

Title: Cold Mountain
Fandom: Alias
Summary: young!Jack/Arvin, 'bastard-cold'. Porn. Ish.

Fake cut
kangeiko: (Default)
I love you really. Although I feel like I should warn for crack...

For [livejournal.com profile] yahtzee63, the true magical mystery fics where Jack and Irina live happily ever after. Sorta.

Take #1: See Jack Smile.

And for [livejournal.com profile] ani_bester, some specially twisted nonsense. (You love me really.)

Don't blame me, blame them.

This one is for [livejournal.com profile] selenak, the first of several requested fics for a variety of people.

Christ Almighty. You know I said I'd never write AUs where you change everything and hope to god that your characters make sense despite all that? Well... I did.

This is for the 'Me' meme, for [livejournal.com profile] yahtzee63, who wanted WowWrongBadHot, AU, Jack and Nadia meeting in a different way.


Well, this is as different as it gets...

Thirdly - I woke up in such a rotten mood today. Possibly a combination of having worked myself to the bone and hormones, I think - but it was bad enough to be actively painful, as that much rage was giving me a crushing headache. I combated said rage by dosing myself with antihistimatines for the hayfever, paracetamol for the headache, chai tea for the stress, shopping for the stompiness, and being outside the for cabin fever. I am, indeed, feeling much better.

I also purchased two splendid items of clothing: a yellow knitted top, which has big button on the front (like a cargidan, basically) but also has a thick ribbon at the waist. It comes down to my hips, is v. figure-hugging, and v. low-cut in that V-neck, and when worn with a pencil skirt will scream classic French sillhouette - or one can only hope. The other item was a black knitted dress, coming down to below my knees, which, again, is low-cut on the V-neck, and v. figure-hugging.

I love well-made knits. *clutches them to my bosom*

HMV were also having a killer sale, and I acquired the following:

- MiB 1 & 2 = £3
- Mr & Mrs Smith = £3
- Blow = £3
- Dr Zhivago = £7
- The Prestige = £7
- Lost in Translation = £3

All of these make me happy. Yes. If you can spare time to go to HMV, go, their sale is rather good about now...

Now I must go and continue working on the Halo Jones fic I have been writing, because I have a serious Alan Moore yen at the moment.

One more week in Kent, and then I am free! Whee!!

A/N: Given how depressing the vast majority of S5 is, I decided to go for a little bit of fluff. I hope that it worked... *crosses fingers*

A/N 2: The titles of the different segments may sound familiar - I suppose I should credit Ian Fleming...

Fandom: Alias
Summary: Halloween costumes and sparkly fairy wands abound. Sorta. Jack/Laura, Arvin/Emily. [livejournal.com profile] fanfic100 #73 - light. (I chose to interpret this as light-hearted, rather than bright - but it sorta fits the latter as well. Anyway.)
