I've just checked with my lawyer and it's perfectly acceptable to grab your artist friends and stuff them in a sack and bring them over here*.

Actually, my lawyer's words were more like "Don't do that."

Wow. I really don't post over here much anymore. I read, I comment, I tell people on Tumblr about communities over here, but I don't post myself very often. I had grand plans to pretty up my DW account and start crossposting. Ha! Maybe soon, but not yet.

Still hard at work on my Leverage story for [livejournal.com profile] wipbigbang. And by hard at work I mean staring down the barrel of the deadline. I'm getting there though. They're still looking for artists if you're interested. There's a bunch of different fandoms being represented.

Just a heads up that [livejournal.com profile] wipbigbang is still looking for artists. There's a wide variety of stories and fandoms. Any art is welcome, someone signed up to do charcoal sketches as theirs. Right now, writers outnumber artists something like 7 to 1 I think. I don't know if anyone following me anymore watches Leverage, but that's my fandom and I'd love to see an artist with that on their possible fandoms list sign up. I'm actually very excited about this story, whether it gets any art or not, but I'm hoping to see more sign ups, because I love the idea of a big bang that's for wip's that need a boost.

I'm having way too much fun writing for the [livejournal.com profile] wipbigbang. It's more than fun though. I feel this story in a way I haven't felt a lot of my plot bunnies. I've also decided on a title and a name for the verse too, since if I have my way, it will be more than one story. I'm that kind of scared about it that feels like that moment before a roller coaster drops or when you're about to get up on stage. That tells me this is good for me.

I don't know if anyone reads my journal anymore, but I am still around, just mostly on Tumblr. However, I'm in a writing mood, so if anyone sees this, I'm willing to do it for you. (I have had some wine though, so I can't promise no typos.) I'm writing a lot of Leverage lately, but I'll take other fandoms too.

Pick a trope from this list and provide a fandom/pairing and I’ll tell you something about the story I’d write for that combination (i.e. write a snippet from the story or write not!fic or tell you the title and summary for the story I would write)

1. genderswap
2. bodyswap
3. drunk!fic
4. huddling for warmth
5. pretending to be married
6. secretly a virgin
7. amnesia
8. cross-dressing
9. forced to share a bed
10. truth or dare
11. historical AU
12. accidental-baby-acquisition
13. apocalypse fic
14. telepathy
15. High School/College AU

I've consolidated the pieces I've written for [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic that are too short to stand alone, here on Ao3.

So, I wrote a thing over at [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic and then decided to put it up over at AO3. I've gotten some positive feedback, so I thought I'd put it up here too in case anyone was interested in it. You can read it over there: http://archiveofourown.org/works/946759 or behind the cut.

I finally made a tumblr and every time I see somebody go, "Why are people shipping them? They haven't even met yet?" I just shake my head. I'm not sure fandom means what you think it means.

I swear, it's like Sara Bareilles has been writing music just for Once Upon a Time. Or they've been writing to her music. I know, I know, I'm on a OUAT kick lately. It's the new season. It has me all aflutter. I'll return to The Avengers and SPN soon. Anyway, here's some examples of what I'm talking about behind the cut.

Lyrics, etc. )
tidal_race: (Going Down)
After this last episode I have a couple of very strong theories about who some people in OUAT are going to be.I just wanted to put it down for posterity. If I'm wrong, kudos to the writers for keeping us guessing. If I'm not, I'm pretty excited.

I'm really thinking that Bae is Peter Pan. The whole land without magic thing is a complication on that one, but the magic bean seemed to lead straight to Neverland and if Bae didn't go somewhere where he wouldn't age, he'd be long dead by now. That's not to say he's still there, although he could be.

I think it's pretty obvious after the preview that Dr. Whale is Dr. Frankenstein, but that one has been predicted for weeks.

As for tonight's episode as a whole....I liked it more than I thought I would. I was excited for Captain Hook, but I wasn't sure where they'd take it. Because I've been around women who feel as trapped as Milah and done research into that kind of thing, I can sympathize with her. And she didn't just abandon her son, she left him with his father. Was it the "right" thing? No. But it was very human. I think Rumple ripping out the heart of the mother of his child and crushing it to dust was one of his worst crimes. I really saw a change in Capt. Hook at that point. Something slightly darker taking hold. He was an arrogant a**hole before, but some of the playfulness, the zest for life went out of him at that point. Then at the meeting with Cora, there was definitely an older air to him. It was subtle, but I think it was intentional. I saw somebody who had been changed by a couple of centuries plotting revenge.  The way Milah burst onto the deck and started giving orders showed that she held respect among the crew. She was Hook's partner, not just a bed warmer. I feel like this is one of the more classic/clear cut "villian" plots on the show. Killian Jones died on that deck with Milah and Captain Hook was born.

ETA: I don't think Hook is a stone cold villain now per say. Just that there's an exact moment to point to when it all changed for him. I'm hoping for a dynamic character. He was never a good man, but he wasn't evil either. He could have killed Rumple very easily on the ship before he was the Dark One. What remains to be seen is what lengths he went to after that point. I'm probably most interested in a possible redemption arc for his character though vs the rest of the villains. Regina is a wonderfully played character, but she's done so much evil...born or made, she's still done a lot of things that can't be undone, including cold blooded murder as recently as last season. With Rumpelstiltskin I'm still on the fence because if Belle kissing him started to take away his magic, it means that it is a curse and he may not be acting totally from free will while under its control.

Watching pre-Dark One Rumpelstiltskin really sets off my embarrassment squick. It's hard to watch.
