*I am told that it is a mark of growth as a writer if your old writings make you cringe. So that's a good sign, I suppose. Fics marked with WARNING: OLD were written in high school, and frankly are kind of awful, but the ones included here for some reason have sentimental value to me, so I didn't want to leave them out. There are others that I'm pretending don't exist.

Drabbles are anything under 500 words; ficlets are anything between 500 and 1000.

comments disabled because I am sick of spambots, but I swear I am really happy to meet new people! feel free to PM me or comment on any other post and I'll be delighted to make your acquaintance. assuming you're not a spambot.

Dear Trick or Treater 2016

Hi there! I've never done trickortreatex before, so hopefully I'm doing this right. I'm really excited for Halloween this year, and I hope you are too! This post has some extra information about what I like/don't like, but standard disclaimer: if you prefer to just go from the prompts, you don't have to read any of this. I want you to write the story you want to write. If there is ever a question in your heart as to whether you should fulfill some nitpicking optional detail in my request or write the story you have dreamed of writing since you offered the fandom, go with the story of your dreams, because if you love writing it, I'm sure I'll love reading it! The purpose of this post is to make your life easier, not harder. Also, my prompts tend to be very shippy, but if we only matched on one character or you just aren't feeling the romance, that's totally fine! Write the character you signed up for, don't worry about the prompt.

(If you want even more information about me, which I don't think anyone would but I know some people like to read their recipient's blog, I'm meretricula everywhere -- AO3, LJ, DW, and Tumblr. I'm somewhat more active on Tumblr these days than anywhere else.)

Likes: Happiness. I want everybody to be happy or at least not overtly miserable at the end of the fic. They can suffer and be angsty in the beginning or middle but please please please let the ending be sunshine and rainbows or the promise of sunshine and rainbows on the not-too-distant horizon. I'm also happy to get a fic that's 100% fluffy sunshine and rainbows all the way through. I'm a big fan of tropes where characters have a lot of history between them -- friends to lovers, childhood sweethearts, best frenemies, sibling relationships, etc. -- and you'll see those popping up a lot in my prompts. Basically I'm ALL ABOUT THE FEELINGS. I'm not a big fan of porn for porn's sake but if you're happier writing about people expressing their feelings via sex, that's great too!

I also like: lots of background detail; tropes and cliches; subverted/inverted tropes and cliches; lots of dialogue; limited third person POV; canon settings, canon divergences AND alternate universes; food; competence; found families; mixed media/documentation fic.

Dislikes: major character death (as in, this character is gone and not coming back; death followed by resurrection or altered form of existence is fine so long as the character is still around); humiliation; intense angst; graphic violence and gore; noncon and dubcon; first and second person POV; AUs that change the nature of characters' backstory together (e.g. if two people have known each other since childhood I'd rather not have an AU where they meet for the first time as adults, but an AU where they meet under different circumstances but around the same point in their lives is fine).

Trick or Treat preference: well, I like happy stuff, so treats are good! But I also love love love stories with monsters and magic and the supernatural, so I'm 100% down for trick fic so long as it ends happily.

Fanfic/Fanart preference: I'm not a very visual person, so I generally prefer words over pictures.

Dear Yulegoat 2015

Hi, friend! Thank you so much for offering one of my tiny fandoms -- I am so excited to read whatever you write, and I hope you will have a wonderful time writing for me! This post has some general information about stuff I like/don't like, because I prefer it when my recipient gives me extra stuff to go on, but if you prefer to just go from the prompts, you don't have to read any of this. I want you to write the story you want to write. If there is ever a question in your heart as to whether you should fulfill some nitpicking optional detail in my request or write the story you have dreamed of writing since you offered the fandom, go with the story of your dreams, because if you love writing it, I'm sure I'll love reading it!

Some of the canons I've requested lend themselves more to sexy feels than others; I've indicated the ones where I'm not comfortable receiving adult content.

So about a million years ago stickmarionette prompted me to do a Baby Dream Team fanmix on tumblr, and I promptly failed to do much of anything except vaguely think about suitably tragic song lyrics (sorry I'm the worst) until I was finally impelled by a nostalgic trip through my football tag and my intense Baby Dream Team Feels (tm) about the song Laughter Lines by Bastille to finish the mix and make a cover and even write a drabble to go along with it? This productivity feels very strange. Anyway, I hope you like/don't hate this, Lee! I'm very out of practice with everything, including feeling things. \o/

in the future, when we"re olderCollapse )

I swear somebody actually asked for this! also, there's a lot of dom/sub dynamic stuff in this pairing and especially in this rec set (sometimes formalized, sometimes not), so if that's not your thing maybe steer clear. I'm into it (also, I think it makes a lot of sense... oh Tyler, you just need someone to look after you better), but if you want more vanilla recs lemme know and I'll see what I can do!

gonna have to ask about (6783 words) by ferrassie
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Hockey RPF
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Jamie Benn/Tyler Seguin
Characters: Tyler Seguin, Jamie Benn, Jordie Benn, Valeri Nichushkin
Additional Tags: Time Travel, Bodyswap
Summary:

This is not Tyler’s apartment. He has no idea how he got here or who he’s sleeping beside, face hidden in the pillow. He’s been sitting up long enough to wake him, though.


“Tyler,” he says, voice muffled and rough with sleep. “You awake?” He looks up with half-lidded eyes, dark hair a mess.



texas heat (9738 words) by Rest
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Hockey RPF
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Jamie Benn/Tyler Seguin
Summary:

He can't pretend getting traded didn't gut him. He gave that city his all, and some part of him really thought it was going to be a for-life thing. But he can see, now, that Boston wasn't actually that good for him. Dallas is giving him a chance to be better.

He doesn't think being better includes creeping on his dog walker, but whatever. Nobody's perfect.

Fandom: Hockey RPF
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences

Characters: Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - BDSM
Summary:

Jamie's met Tyler before, seen pictures of him, knows he's an uncollared sub, but he's not prepared for the force of that in a friendly personal situation. Tyler isn't submitting, exactly, when Jamie opens the door, but there's a vulnerability to him that wasn't there at All-Star Weekend, and the v-neck he's wearing makes his bare throat stand out like a beacon.

hockey recs!

highlights of the Hockey RPF Holiday Exchange for khoshgeleh_16 -- I hope they prove useful! *hugs*

Game Plan (10281 words) by thehoyden
Summary: Unlike Nealsy, Evgeni can cook his own food when he has it. He’s perfectly capable of making breakfast. His kitchen is well-equipped, and he’s got some good basic cooking skills down. In short, he is not going to starve to death if left to his own devices.

None of this seems to matter to Sid.
Notes: I am a total sucker for a story with food in it. This is a typical fluffy thehoyden get-together fic, and it's delightful.


let your heart be light (3231 words) by ohtempora
Summary: They're still doing better than the Sabres. The Sabres have two games in hand.
Notes: Dumb Oilers babies being dumb should not still be entertaining at this point, but ah well. It kind of is.


the courtship of patrick kane (9673 words) by hazel
Summary: “Well,” Kaner says finally. “If you want to keep cockblocking me with the ladies, you’re gonna have to make it worth my while.” He’s smirking like it’s a challenge, like he knows Jon can’t ever let a challenge drop, and that’s it. That’s how Jon realises that he’s totally, completely, embarrassingly head-over-heels in love with Patrick fucking Kane.


Take a(n Espresso) Shot and (French) Press Yourself Against Me (12742 words) by knew_her_when
Summary: James is a terrible barista, Paul is a grad student who snarks about his coffee but keeps coming back
(That's word-for-word the request I chose and the best summary one could write.)


Bending with the Road (11746 words) by VampireSpider
Summary: “Booked a hotel in Charlotte,” James says as they’re getting into the car. “Should take us about seven hours to get there if the traffic’s not too bad.” He glances up to meet Paul’s eyes and grins a little. “Unless we get distracted along the way.”
Paul rolls his eyes. “Or you get us lost,” he says.
*
James has a schedule. Paul has places to be.
Notes: I AM STILL SO UPSET ABOUT THIS FIC GIVING ME ALL THESE FEELINGS. But in a good way, I think? I just get so mad at the thought of things not working out perfectly for these two morons. They'll probably be all right anyway.


Stars Apart (13331 words) by Java_Genie
Summary: It’s easy for Geno to imagine how things could better, out in the black. He’s read all the comic books and seen all the movies about the people who leave the core behind and find a second life, a better life, as pioneers and outlaws on the frontier of space. It means opportunity—the chance to scrub yourself clean of all the bad names and mean labels the core gives people born to parents not rich enough, smart enough or brave enough.
But Sid, he was born with all the right labels—and Geno can’t think of a single thing Sid could find out among the stars that he couldn’t have here at home.
Notes: FIREFLY AU AW YEAH.


Close to Water (2122 words) by derryderrydown
Summary: "I was wondering." Sid cleared his throat and looked awkward, and Geno had a moment of dread over what horror Sid was going to ask of him, before Sid said, in a rush, "Do you want to go canoeing?"
Notes: "Canoeing" ahahahahaha oh god.


semantic shift (10852 words) by neros_violin
Summary: “He asked what some of the words meant, on the signs, what they yell. I told him. He’s a fan of Princess Sidney, especially.”


Bluehawk (16860 words) by aohatsu
Summary: Jo sleeps with Kaner for the second time when she’s twenty-one and gets drunk off her ass in a bar in Vancouver.
Notes: I don't see a lot of girl!Tazer fic, and I quite liked this one!


make you a believer (7924 words) by Katarin
Summary: PK pretends he and Carey are dating, without telling Carey. It's Christmas with the Subbans!
Notes: I already yelled at everyone to read this on Twitter, but just in case somebody missed that, EVERYONE GO READ THIS FIC IMMEDIATELY. Everything about it is perfect. PK's cheerful attitude towards casual sex. His relationship with everyone in his family, especially his mom. Carey's relationship with everyone in PK's family, especially Malcolm. PK's inevitable oblivious tromping over Carey's heart. Yes. Glorious.


we're so close to something better left unknown (10431 words) by sesame_seed
Summary: Prompt 1: Blackhawks, Toews/Kane, power imbalance - it could be teacher/student, bodyguard/witness, even assassin/target - I'd just really like a fic where Toews absolutely should not give in to his feelings for Kane, but he does anyway.
Notes: The summary sucks, the fic is great, please do not be put off. It's about fixing a power imbalance, not taking advantage of it.


Space Kaner (2991 words) by celli
Summary: Patrick has an extra toe from an unfortunate accident as a child and an inconvenient crush on his commanding officer. It gets worse from there.
Notes: Womp womp STAR TREK AU yeah that's right.


Banned (10674 words) by Vitula
Summary: “Temporarily banned by mod taz3r: misleading use of geography,” reads his third ban of the month.
Kaner stares at his phone's screen for a long moment before angrily muttering, “but it fucking is Winterpeg.” He's not sure if this is more or less embarrassing than the time Jonny banned him from the hockey forum for unsporting conduct for insulting Canada's Olympic candidates.


Hate to see you go (4128 words) by littlemissaily
Summary: ... love to watch you leave.
Carey does not want a piece of that ass, okay? He just admires a man who looks good in a suit.

Year-End Fic Meme

(ganked from mardia, because my usual meme will just make it so much more obvious that I stopped writing halfway through the year...)

This year I wrote:

hitched my apple wagon to your star: The Hobbit, fem!Fili/Kili
old dogs, new tricks: Women's Football RPF, Berta Carles/Ani Escribano
the wheels on the bus go round and round: Tennis RPF, Rafael Nadal/Novak Djokovic (technically I didn't write this in 2013 but this is when I posted it, so...)
radical reference: Football RPF, Victor Valdes/Andres Iniesta
passion of the pistol: Tennis RPF, Flavia Pennetta/Francesca Schiavone
quis custodiet ipsos custodes: Hannibal, Hannibal Lecter/Will Graham (co-written with my long-distance life partner aramley)
encara em bull la sang: Football RPF, Victor Valdes/Andres Iniesta
jeu décisif: Tennis RPF, Rafael Nadal/Novak Djokovic
the real hockey widows of new jersey: Hockey RPF, Danny Briere/Claude Giroux
Bourbon and Boys Give Me the Blues: Hart of Dixie, Wade Kinsella/Lemon Breeland


so many questionsCollapse )

Next up: a long-overdue personal update and some recs! I'm very very slowly working my way through the Yuletide fic I downloaded before reveals, but I promised khoshgeleh_16 I'd rec her my favorites of the hockey exchange, and I've already picked my way through that. 

Tags:

I wrote a thing! I've fallen off the bandwagon writing-wise in a really bad way, so I'm actually very pleased that I managed to finish something. I've got to get back in the habit for yuletide! (Speaking of which, if you are in the Boston area, there's a doodle poll for potential writer meet-ups here. I've been to meet-ups this woman has hosted before and I had a blast!) But yeah. Writing! Written by me! Even if it is hockey fic, to my secret shame.

title: the real hockey widows of new jersey
fandom: Hockey RPF
pairing: Danny Briere/Claude Giroux
rating: PG
word count: 2787
summary: "Since when does Sylvie like you?" Danny demanded.

"Why wouldn't Sylvie like me?
I'm not divorced from her." Claude paused, then added thoughtfully, "Also, I cook, and I'm never late picking the boys up from school. I think that's a big part of it."
notes: So once upon a time doctor_denmark and I had a conversation on twitter about how much we wanted to see Claude being the Briere kids' stepmom while Danny was in Montreal (said conversation is immortalized here) and then I decided that more than anything in the world, I needed for Sylvie and Claude to have co-parent bonding nights over a lot of white wine that ended in drunk-dialing Danny. Uh. That's it, that's the story. Sorry guys. Infinite thanks to luxover, internationally recognized expert on Claude Giroux, for fixing my sad attempt at writing Claude's English, and to khoshgeleh_16 for helping with the title! ♥

parenting is tough, kidsCollapse )

it's the best time of the year!!! I finally got my dear yulegoat letter up, if anybody else is like me and likes to read the requests before assignments even come out and speculate about the fic that may be written this year.

also in this post, because why not: my dear friend orangecrush1189 asked me a while ago for recs that might be good for someone who's never seen a vid before. I thought about that a lot, since thinking about vids is one of my favorite things, natch. idk if there's a best way to ease someone into vids, but I think one of the major barriers to understanding them is not having the visual vocabulary to pick up what any given vid is trying to do without external prompting? so I decided that maybe it would make sense to show someone a few good examples of the more common types of vids -- as soon as you realize they're not all the same and they don't all use the same vocabulary, it gets way easier! (for most things, anyway. there's plenty of vids out there that I still don't really get.) if y'all have suggestions for different ways to introduce a friend to the fine art of vid appreciation, I'd love to hear them too!

vid recs by type, mainly BtVS, Teen Wolf, FNL and CommunityCollapse )
