Hi! Slowly but steadily learning how to use lj, hopefully I'll get the hang of it sometime this millenium...

My fics can all be found here at AO3, and my tumblr here. Feel free to add me if you want to chat :)


Winter Knights is back!

Don't know whether I'll have time to join this year but it's a great little low pressure fest!

Pornalot pimping

I promise not to post about it too much but look at this beautiful banner Red Queen made for Pornalot! One of several gorgeous ones she made...

H/C Bingo

I got my card for h/c bingo!

Bit of a daunting one this year, I think I prefer clea2011's... I can't see myself doing things like heart attack or major illness to be honest as they're a bit close to life, but hostages and taking care of somebody are catnip.

Also I got alien abduction again! I'm writing porn for it this time, I swear...

So I finally properly outlined my ACBB! As everyone else I know has already written like 20k, I am aware this is impressive in no way, but baby steps! Anyway, it's exciting. I know it'll deviate a bit (a lot?) from what it looks like now but it's good to at least vaguely know where I'm going...

I'm so happy to be working with Mushroom again. She came up with the story with me and she's just been dropping off ideas in chat ever since, like some kind of magical plot fairy. Last year I started the fic on my own and matched with her later (and she then contributed a schload of ideas to that one too) but it's awesome to be starting from scratch with her. Collaboration is really good for a project like this I think, because you can cheer each other on and work through writer's block / art block together and flail together and yes... I'm lucky to have her.

But my main and perpetual dilemna is as follows: to write in present tense or past tense? I have a feeling this story might work better in past, being a canon au with a sort of vague high fantasy feel. But I will be fighting myself all the way not to slip back into present! Given the limited time frame, should I just let myself do present tense as it comes naturally to me? Or should I make an effort at past tense for the story's sake?
I noticed a lot of people are doing the Write Every Day in May thing! I am psyched to see it from y'all although I am terrible at things like that myself - so I'm trying the baby challenge of Write Some Days in May...

Anyway, this is my prompt set for hurt/comfort bingo's May challenge.

suicide attempt bodyguards
blackmail trust issues

It has to be for a small fandom so I'm doing Humans, and you can use as many of the four prompts as you want. Blackmail is popping out at me so far, although trust issues wouldn't exactly be hard for poor Leo... Any suggestions?

15 Merlin Fanfic Recs

Here are the fifteen fic recs I did for the March challenge on hurt/comfort bingo. My prompts were hostages, nightmares, and insomnia.

Fic: Soon

Title: Soon

Rating: R
Warnings: Murder, slightly cracky violence
Summary: Based on this tumblr post by 5leggedcricket: 'There is no way that Mary Collins was Merlin’s first kill. Have you seen the ease with which he killed her? He didn’t even have to think about it. What exactly had Merlin been up to in Ealdor?'

I was reminded I wrote this recently when we had the Merlin rewatch! So here's my alternate take on The Dragon's Call :)
