And win the Eurovision Song Conteeeeeest!!!

My Sunday:
0. Sleep really badly.
1. Wake at 4:45am, text friend to see if it's still okay if I go over and watch Eurovision with her; it is.
2. 5am, watch my way through The Eurovision (as it's called in Europe), decide that most of the songs are good listening, but I don't much like the visuals.
3. 8am head home to grab my stuff for
4. Hockey: watching Team 1 play at 9am
5. Hockey: playing game at 10:30am (we lost 3-2)
6. Hockey: playing game for Team 2 at 1pm (we won 2-1 and one of the goals was mine)
7. Take a bath, nearly fall asleep in it.
8. Decide going to church (driving there) with the amount of sleep I haven't had is unwise.
9. Make a sandwich and note that hands are shaking.
10. Come back and start reading Fandom 5K. The quality of the stories I've read has been REALLY GOOD, guys!

Fandom 5K recs (so far)

Harry Potter:
Charms for an Extraordinary Life: When Harry's actions throw an investigation into a Dark wizarding shop into disarray, he must work with Magizoological expert Luna Lovegood to crack the case.

Fantastic Beasts (And Where To Find Them):
Turn (Slightly) Left: A handful of minutes can throw even the most gifted Seer's prophecies off. Credence's Obscurus passes through Central Park slightly later, which gives Newt the time and information he needs to find an Obscurial with enough control over their magic that he may be able to save them.

Fairytale Of Eureka: The annual Eureka town bake-off is going great — until taste-testers start coming down with fairy-tale afflictions. With Jack out of town, Jo needs to figure out what’s going on before it’s too late.

I have four more open in the tags and will read them over the next few days. I would like people to read (and enjoy) the story I wrote, but it's been a bit touch-and-go lately.

And now that it is 9pm, I think it is time to go to bed...

So, as it turned out, I wrote six stories in Chocolate Box - one assignment, one pinch hit, and four treats.

My Assignment was for [archiveofourown.org profile] chokolattejedi and was Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern - or, more correctly, the Harper Hall of Pern, centering on Menolly.
FANDOM: Dragonriders of Pern - Anne McCaffrey
TITLE: Rhythms Of Living
SUMMARY: Learning and growing in the Harper Hall.
TAGS: Menolly (Dragonriders of Pern), Robinton (Dragonriders of Pern), Sebell (Dragonriders of Pern), Silvina (Dragonriders of Pern), Lessa (Dragonriders of Pern), The Harper Hall, Journeyman Menolly, Dealing With Prejudice, Women of Pern
It's kind of funny; Menolly and the Harper Hall aren't my favourite parts of Pern to read - I'm fond of them, sure, but I always wanted more about Lessa/F'lar and Brekke/F'nor myself. Still, it was good to go back through Menolly's books, and even read All The Weyrs again.

I haven't read any of Todd McCaffrey's books; I think I pretty much gave up at the Dolphins of Pern, or maybe one book later? The Masterharper of Pern? IDEK. It might just be that I'd grown up and moved on, or that I wanted more complicated characterisation, or more female protags... I don't remember why anymore. I just haven't looked at a Pern book in a while.


My pinch hit was a Rogue One Jyn/Cassian request for [archiveofourown.org profile] opticalprism who prompted "5 ways they drive each other up the wall (and they wouldn't have it any other way)" which, of course, occasioned not only All The Little Things That Irk Them, but also Word Play Opportunity. I love it when a good plan comes together!
FANDOM: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)
TITLE: Drive Me Crazy
SUMMARY: Chirrut’s mouth quirks. “Grow used to it from one you love. Trust me. Easier all around.”
RATING: Mature
TAGS: Cassian Andor/Jyn Erso, Chirrut Îmwe/Baze Malbus (background), Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor, Bodhi Rook, Baze Malbus, Chirrut Îmwe, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, Five Times, 5+1 Things, relationship, Humour, Cameos from everyone, Fluff
I'm extremely pleased with how this turned out, and really pleased with the response to it, which has been quite enthusiastic. I don't usually get a lot of comments on my fics. I'm not sure why. Am I intimidating?


After my required stories, it was a question of going back through and looking for prompts I liked and could fill. Unfortunately nobody else asked for Maria/Steve, so I went hunting for other seeds out of which I could grow trees.

I did a quick search for anyone requesting Luna Lovegood in HP (my OTP for Harry is actually Harry/Luna) and found [archiveofourown.org profile] lirin was asking for Luna and Neville during their 7th Year at Hogwarts. To quote Chekov: "I CAN DO ZAT!" (*sob*)
FANDOM: Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling
TITLE: Evenly Distributed
SUMMARY: They can do this. They can survive. They will.
TAGS: Neville Longbottom & Luna Lovegood, Neville Longbottom, Luna Lovegood, Dumbledore's Army, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Freeform, Missing Scene, Carrows Reign at Hogwarts

Next up, [archiveofourown.org profile] Gelsey was asking for Stargate SG1, Sam Carter and Jack O'Neill. I haven't written these two crazy kids in years...
FANDOM: Stargate SG-1
TITLE: Quite Proper
SUMMARY: It is totally and completely appropriate for a general to look out for his people.
TAGS: Sam Carter & Jack O'Neill, Jack O'Neill, Sam Carter, Friendship, All The Things They Don't Say, Late Night Conversations, Snacks & Snack Food
This was written at fairly high speed - no time for a significant story, just write an interlude!


Generally speaking, my friends don't tend to ask for things I really enjoy writing. I still keep an eye out for their requests. And when [archiveofourown.org profile] theladyscribe asked for Queen/Spy original fiction, my brain produced a bunny...
FANDOM: Original Work
TITLE: Emperah and Spy
SUMMARY: "A consort is for bringing up sons," said her mother, the Emperah that was. "The concubini are for pleasure and release and a little fun. But lovers... A lover is a threat to you and to the empire."
TAGS: Queen, Spy
In spite of it's limited appeal, I'm quite pleased with it. I've had several Imperial courts in my head for a while, and the idea of a beneficial Imperium vs. a corrupt and venal Republic is a concept that I think would be worth exploring in our current times. It all comes down to working out the plot, the structure, and the twist (if there is one).

And after I wrote Emperah and Spy, I figured I was done.


Because while perusing letters, I discovered [archiveofourown.org profile] bittersnake had asked for a Rogue One, Cassian/Jyn Black Jewels fusion...




TITLE: Oaths Broken And Remade
SUMMARY: It’s one thing to know that obedience isn’t the first law and quite another to look at nearly twenty males who are about to break faith with the Queens whose honor they once swore to uphold.
TAGS: Cassian Andor/Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor, Jyn Erso, Alternate Universe - Black Jewels Fusion
The idea of honour, and of Blood male responsibilities is a theme that comes up again and again in the Black Jewels series. It's usually explored with regards to a Queen, which is understandable because that's how the society works. But I thought it would be interesting to explore further the concept of males serving an idea or ideal, mingled in with the refrain that's passed through the books, from Saetan to Lucivar to Daemon, and from Lucivar to Jared Blaed: The First Law isn't obedience. I was going to add in Everything has a price, but figured that would only muddy the waters.

Incidentally? Twenty-four men focused around a single female works as the First and Second Circles of a Queen's court. It's the little things...


All in all, I'm pretty happy with them all - not just the responses to them, but with them as stories.

One assignment, one pinch-hit, one treat.

With A Cause (the Loyalty Is Earned remix)
S.H.I.E.L.D may be gone, but allegiances are not so easily shed.

This was a remix of [livejournal.com profile] geckoholic's "She's A Rebel". I really enjoyed the little glimpses into the headspaces of the women in the first, and figured that I'd expand on the themes of the women in S.H.I.E.L.D and their new goals and loyalties.

And after that, naming the fic was just plain fun. ;)

Think Like A Woman (the Found Family remix)
Andromeda Tonks née Black has been staying out of fights all her life – from the day she decided she would marry Teddy Tonks and her family and their blooded expectations be damned, through the day she realised her family would never again see her as one of them – at Uncle Arcturus’ funeral with Aunt Lavinia screeching at her to get out while the family stayed silent, to the day she understood that Harry Potter hadn’t stopped Voldemort, just delayed the fight.

She’s too old to start now.

Andromeda Tonks isn't a character that I'd ever written before, and not one that I'd really thought about, so this was a challenge. I feel like I didn't do the original story justice, even if I managed to pick up the themes about Andromeda's hurt and pain at rejection by the family she was born into, and her determination to make a new family with people who care about her and hers.

Half-Sick Of Shadows (the Finding A Way Out remix)
Maria grew up being watched by men and women who knew how to handle a weapon; but this man – Steve – is something else. He knows how to handle a weapon, he knows how to handle himself, he knows how to handle other people with weapons.

And nowhere is that more clear than in the expensive, airy, Paris apartment where a man lies dead and glassy-eyed after being jabbed in the throat with a fountain pen.

So, back when [personal profile] theladyscribe first got into Steve/Maria fandom, I challenged her to 'fic tennis' and this was her starting shot. Sadly, I never actually wrote the riposte and the challenge kind of died. I guess this could be considered my riposte? (Two years late.)

I love the original Bourne trilogy (haven't seen the Renner edition, so no opinion yet), particularly the introduction and triumph of Pamela and Nicky’s survival and presence in all three movies. Marie annoyed me, though, as did her fridging. (And I only just noticed the name similarity. Huh.) Maria would be nowhere near as passive or disbelieving - in any universe or incarnation. And were I to write a sequel to this (as the ideas streak through my head like the chase sequences in the Bourne movies), she would most certainly not be fridged...

At any rate, when [personal profile] theladyscribe's author had a small meteorological crisis (I believe?), I thought "I'm pretty sure I could remix something of hers..." and went looking.

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the FemmeRemix - and particularly to [personal profile] theladyscribe for managing the whole thing.

FANDOM: Harry Potter - Next Gen
TITLE: Twelfth Night (or Al's Best Birthday Ever)
SUMMARY: It's Albus Severus Potter's twelfth birthday and he's invited all his new friends from Hogwarts to his party. Naturally, shenanigans ensue...
CATEGORY: Gen, Humour, NextGen, Drama, Friendship, Fluff.
NOTES: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] hp_nextgen_fest. It was fun to write, with all the kids, their enthusiasm, and the mad shenanigans that the Weasley-Potter clan and their friends inevitably get into. I've used JKR's canon for the Weasleys post-series, along with her pairings for Neville (Hannah Abbot), Luna (Rolf Scamander), and Draco (Astoria Greengrass) - as well as adding several original characters into the mix. There were going to be more shenanigans than actually turned up in this story, although I think there are quite enough as it is!

FANDOM: Harry Potter - Next Gen
TITLE: Amor Reciprocata
SUMMARY: He's too intense for them - but he is who he is.
RATING: Scorpius/Rose, Romance, Angst, Drama,
CATEGORY: R (sex scenes)
NOTES: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] hp_nextgen_fest. Lots of angst, a little bit of drama, and some sexytimes at the end...

CATEGORY: Scorpius/Rose, Albus/OFC, NextGen, Post-Hogwarts, romance, angst, drama, sex, friendship.
WARNINGS: (highlight to see) Nothing to warn of.
DISCLAIMER: Not mine, making no money, etc.
NOTES: So, I started this with "With Benefits" and this is the rest of Part 1 (of 4). I'm almost halfway through Part 2, so this is definitely a WIP.

ALTERNATES: AO3 | Porn Battle (DW)
WARNINGS: (highlight to see) Background mention of the death of a major character.

Whew! Okay, that's it - I've done my part for the Porn Battle XIII. Not as many as I wanted to do - I had a bunch of other prompts picked out as possibiities, but these were the ones that spoke most loudly to me. C'est la vie!

Hot Water, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Percy/Annabeth, at sea
She's a daughter of Athena - goddess of wisdom and war - and this is most definitely war!

Safe Sex, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Faith/Wesley, trust
Sex is safest in sunlight...

Good Morning, SG-1, Sam Carter/Jack O'Neill, morning
He doesn't ask. Asking was for last night, for yesterday afternoon: the 'are you sures', the 'do you reallys', and the 'would you pleases'. This morning she's naked and in his bed and wet under his hands and willing when he pushes her down and takes her hard.

A Little Release, Harry Potter, Harry Potter/Luna Lovegood, sunlight
Desire hits him with a pain nearly as intense as a Crucio, a hunger he hasn’t felt in years. It rises up in his belly and curls soft fingers around his throat, around his balls, an almost tender touch.

Saturday, February 11th, 2012 07:25 am
No Promises, Bourne Movies, Jason Bourne/Nicky Parsons, touch
She forces herself to walk to the kitchen, to drop her keys into the bowl as though nothing happened. Yes, the cops came, but it wasn’t for them. For once, they were the bystanders to death.

More Than Missing, Battlestar Galactica 2003, Kara Thrace/Lee Adama, cabin, Earth 2.0, back from the dead
It was easier not to want. It always has been.

Sacred Ground, Justice League, Batman/Wonder Woman, scars
Diana knows better than to trespass on sacred ground.

Among Other Things, Harry Potter, Scorpius Malfoy/Rose Weasley, deliberate, quiet
Rose knows exactly what she's doing when she walks into Scorpius' bedroom in nothing more than a nightrobe, loosely belted.

...they're not so much 'porn' as 'fics with sex in'. I'm kind of failing at the actual porn.

Okay, so...it all has to start somewhere. And after watching HP: Deathly Hallows 2, I got sucked into writing Harry Potter 'Next Generation' fic, to the point where I now have an entire universe planned out around Albus, Rose, Scorpius, and the other Next Generation characters. (And the older characters aren't missing out, either. Harry, Ginny, Ron, Hermione, Luna, Draco and co. are all developing 'futures' and it's more than a little scary...)

How much of it gets written depends on whether the bug bites me hard enough to stick.

TITLE: The Pointy End Of The Stick
SUMMARY: Rose Weasley has a boyfriend. Albus and Scorpius are giving him 'the talk'. They're having rather more fun than Albus expected.
CATEGORY: Humour, NextGen, At Hogwarts, Awesome Foursome
NOTES: This isn't quite the first story in the Awesome Foursome chronology, but I'm kind of stuck between whether I should write "Rose Weasley and the Hogwarts Malevolence" or "Love Story".

TITLE: With Benefits
SUMMARY: Scorpius has always exceeded expectations in insufferability...and in being very good.
CATEGORY: Romance, Rose/Scorpius, Albus/OFC, NextGen, Post-Hogwarts
NOTES: This prompt inspired a much longer Scorpius/Rose fic that I couldn't finish before the deadline. However, this section of the story stands alone and is complete.

In other news, I've finished reading the Percy Jackson series (first series) and am contemplating ficlets. Just small bits and pieces, mind.
