primroseburrows: (dS: fraser hat)
Day One: In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator.

I don't know if I'm "defined" by anyone, since I write so seldom, but here are three I like:

1. Fraser Being Fraser is a meta on writing Fraser I did for [community profile] ds_workshop, and it may be the piece I'm most proud of. I think I did a pretty complete character study of Fraser and how to write him without falling into traps of cliché and fanon. I know a lot of people tend to shy away from writing Fraser because they find him difficult to write. He's always been easy for me--it's like he makes camp in my head when I'm writing--so even though I'm not a huge self-pimper (to say the least), I still refer people to this when they're having trouble writing Fraser. Because you can never have too much Fraser.

2 Where the Women Are Strong, the Men are Good-looking, and the Mounties are Above Average. Written for the second DS Flashfiction Badfic Challenge, I had more fun writing this than any other fic I've written, ever. I'm a big fan of A Prairie Home Companion, and I've wanted to write a Guy Noir/dS crossover since a comment conversation I had with [profile] isiscolo a few years ago. I was very pleased with the way it turned out and the positive response I got--even my non-fandom pro-writer housemate liked it. :)

3. Light the Sun. dS Seekrit Santa is my favourite fic challenge, and I never miss a year, even when (like this year), I've been away from fandom a lot (POLITICS ATE MY *SOUL*, PEOPLE, and I'm trying desperately to get it back!). This was the first story I wrote for dSSS, back in 2006, and also my first real dS story (aside from one horrible attempt at NC-17 which may have come first but that I'm pretending doesn't exist and you should too). I really like this one--I think I managed to make it sweet without tipping over into sappy, and I even managed to write Vecchio in a way that doesn't make me cringe (note: I love Ray Vecchio so, so much--it's just that his voice doesn't come to me easily).

Finally finished my [livejournal.com profile] ds_northernnews story. Anyone so inclined can find it here. [/self-pimp]

Now I have to go and do some actual RL stuff. Like, say, eat.
primroseburrows: (dS: dead!bob)
Aaand now for the big reveal!


[livejournal.com profile] elementalv wrote A Partner Called Ray (F/K, PG) for me! And it's a crossover! And there's Dead!Bob, just like I wanted, and all sorts of wonderful other things, like good writing and everyone being all IC and all. Everyone go read it and tell her how cool she is.

Also, for the four of you who couldn't tell, my DSSS fic is First Day of my Life (F/K, PG-13, written for [livejournal.com profile] ximeria).

When I was frantically finishing it up (last minute as usual, at my mother's house on Block Island without my own computer or a room of my own to write in), I swore I would NEVER do DSSS again. IIRC, It's what I said last year, too. I'll almost definitely do it again, though. It's like having a baby, sorta. It's good pain, it's creative pain; the kind that's forgotten as soon as it's done.

This is the video that inspired the thing, and even though I've linked to it before I'm doing it again because it's such a beautiful vid that everyone needs to see it (and I dare you not to get at least a little teary, in a good way):



SEE? ISN'T THAT GORGEOUS?


And eep! I almost forgot! [livejournal.com profile] dragonflymuse, I got your present! I love it! I'm going to stick it on my new coat and confuse the heck out of my co-workers. *hugs and twirls*

This is for [livejournal.com profile] sam80853, because I promised. *loves*

It's longer than I thought, because I can't just write kisses, I have to add actual plot. *rolls eyes*


Long Weekend - F/K, PG-13 )
primroseburrows: (dS: vecchio)
I actually wrote an entire fic. And finished it. And posted it almost on time. If you want, you can look at it over here. Nothing major, just me playing with someone else's inventions.

Yes, I stayed up all night to finish it. Today is gonna suck like crazy.

Belated birthday drabble for [livejournal.com profile] sam80853. It's not the one I started to write. This one I did immediately after waking up from dreaming that Geoffrey, Oliver, and Ellen were all living in a house I used to own. Sort of. Dreams are funny. And I seem to remember telling people that S&A doesn't NEED fic, because it's complete and doesn't have loose ends. Which it doesn't. Er. *blames muse*

Anyway, this one's for you, kiddo, such that it is.

SPOILERS FOR THE LAST EPISODE OF SLINGS & ARROWS. DO NOT CLICK IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN ALL THREE SEASONS. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
