is coming along. I may have to skip Maria's "wait, wtf" scene with T'Challa, because I don't actually have enough space in this section. I'm trying to make each 'chapter' of the story ~3500 words, but so far we're at 1900 and I've just managed to introduce the complication. And Bucky has interrupted it as per the plan.
Now we need to have the conversation about Bucky and Steve, Maria and Steve, and Sharon and Steve, and then I was hoping there'd be room for T'Challa and Maria, but I'm doubtful.
After that, Natasha gives her opinion on EVERYTHING and starts trying to staunch the bleeding (metaphorically, not actually).
I guess this story is at the usual stage of "HIT THE PANIC BUTTONS, ALL RELEVANT PLOTBUNNIES TO THEIR STATIONS" given my life busyness right now and the due date for the wipbigbang
which is Mid-June (right around the same time as my quilts for the show are due; JOY).
I took a PH for a fic exchange that I can't specify because specifying it will instantly out me as the author (as though the story itself won't).
Why did I do this? Because...I don't even know why, only that I've made my situation a lot more complicated right when I don't need to.
Self? You suck.
Two fic exchange reveals (as though it wasn't immediately obvious).worldbuildingexTITLE
: All The Daughters Of My Father's HouseSUMMARY
: Lyra and Jyn Erso bouncing around a universe where the shadow of the Empire is growing longer.CHARACTERS/PAIRINGS
: Lyra Erso, Jyn Erso, Saw Gerrera, Chirrut Imwe/Baze MalbusTAGS
: Alternate Universe (canon divergence), Jedha, Lyra survives, Mother Bear, Celebrations on RATINGS
: My assignment asked for "rogue one: give me those ladies *grabby hands* i’m super interested in the structure of the rebel alliance as well as seeing women in positions of power/getting to tell their stories *cough*lyra*cough*. alternatively, my gay azn fathers. (tell me about the jedi temple! and chirrut’s relationship with it! and chirrut/baze ofc)
". There were two more chapters planned, where Lyra goes to the Rebel Alliance and tries to keep Jyn from becoming a child soldier, but I didn't get to them. The worldbuilding for Alderaan academical structures was just a little more than my brain could take at the time.
It wasn't particularly well received, but then, it's not a particularly stellar story, IMO.
was immediately identifiable:TITLE
: Trust TeaseSUMMARY
: Going slow, going deep, playing games with someone you trust with your body and your vulnerabilities.CHARACTERS/PAIRINGS
: Maria Hill/Steve Rogers, Thor (cameo)TAGS
: Smut, Oral Sex, Multiple Orgasms, Fucked Raw, SexRATINGS
: I had sunspot
on my treats list anyway, because I never get assigned the Maria/Steve prompts...and lo and behold, I got assigned to them! So I wrote smut. It's very vanilla smut at this point, although they discuss/negotiate kink for later times, and I was planning to write the later times, only again, the due date defeated me.
I got a bit of flak on this one for forgetting that it was smut and labelling it 'G', which then had a whole bunch of people clicking on the story to check that I hadn't signed up for a smut swap and then written non-smut. However, I found it somewhat amusing that someone on FFA apparently gathered their courage, closed their eyes, and searched for oral sex in the story - OMG THE HET SEX IT BURNS MY EYEN!
Otherwise, April was spent in Camp NaNo trying to write original fiction - back to the Shadowkids again. I have the structure, I just have to concentrate enough to write it, dammit.
So May: write fic, make quilts, seek job, get winter garden in, score goals for hockey, cook for self...
