I got a wonderful gift-fic on Remix Revival. It’s a remix on my story Arabella’s Visit, but darker, and with so much more depth. I don’t hesitate to say it’s a much better fic than mine ever was! Mine is told from Arabella’s POV, this one from Childermass, so I also think they work quite well together. Both fics are very much a case of magic made them do it, which makes them dub con.

Title: Mr Childermass Calls [a remix]
Fandom: Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 3044
Characters/pairing: John Childermass/Arabella Strange
Warnings: Dubious Consent, Grief/Mourning, Implied/Referenced Rape/Non-con
Summary: John Childermass, on business in Venice, calls on the Greysteel household, but only Arabella is at home.

Fic: Divided Destiny. Chapter 8.

LOOK WHO HAS GONE BACK TO WRITING AtS FIC!

*crickets*

In short: This is my big epic post-NFA WIP, where Spike, Angel & Illyria go on a big quest to undo the power of W&H. It has PLOT. And lots of character development and stuff. It is part of a 'verse but can easily be read on its own - if you go to the first chapter you can read a swift summary of what has gone before. And I swear, this time I am actually going to finish it! (It really helps that I always had the whole thing planned out properly. This might be the only fic where I have ever known the ending from the start and actually know what I'm doing. *g*)

Also, I now have not just gorgeous icons by [personal profile] ruuger, but also a banner. Isn't it amazing?

First chapter & notes here (on LJ), for DW just follow the tags, and Master post of whole 'verse here (also tagged on DW).

Can also be found on AO3.


Disclaimer: I own nothing.
Rating: Teen. (Same warnings as the show basically.)
Characters: Spike, Angel, Illyria, Buffy, Scoobies + cameos from more or less everyone in the 'verse.
Main Ships: Spike/Buffy, Angel/Nina
Feedback: Is bloody ambrosia! (The secret ingredient is otter...)
Word count (this chapter): 4700 words approx.
Setting and Summary: As before. (Post-NFA epic quest thing.)

And it is finished!! I started this particular series of stories almost 2 years ago... Feels like a lot longer. 40k+ words later, here we are. Hope you found it worthwhile.


Summary: Missy meets the Seeker.
Setting: Immediately after Missy disappears/disintegrates in Death in Heaven (the S8 finale). Works rather perfectly as a little FitB to canon. :)
Characters: Missy, the Seeker.

Hi, practicing again.
I thought it would be funny to reuse Victor Hugo's chapter titles. This is set during Bargaining, so... nope, not funny. More like point-of-viewy and character-study-ish, with lots of angsty puns and no action.
I have a nagging feeling that a few thoughts in there are something I've read in fic. So if you see me rehashing you, oops, please take it as a compliment that your fic is in my headcanon.
Feedback is like pancakes (only better, because I wouldn't actually eat pancakes... but I would eat feedback).

Words: 500
Rating: T
Warning: the reason for the rating is a v. fuzzy, brief reference to the tower scene in Bargaining pt. 2 -- so, suicidal ideation?
Setting: Bargaining
Characters: Scooby ensemble

I do have some thoughts on various things, but it's nearly bedtime, and I'm feeling lazy, so here: have a story about people being kind and good and wonderful.

Khaaaaaaaan!

I'm going to see Wrath of Khan on the big screen tomorrow! It is being shown tomorrow and a few days ago for the 35th anniversary. I just found out about this before work today, and I cannot believe how little advertising it's gotten, grrr. But whatever, my manager is actually letting me come in late so I can go watch it. !!!!!!! Yeah, gonna have to love her forever for this. This is my favorite movie of all time :swoon: 

If anyone is interested - Wrath of Khan on Fandango. We (or I) will be discussing this on Terror for sure. So excited! 

Preacher finale!! (no spoilers)

Life and death. Good and evil. I did not expect this show to get so deep and real. I did not expect Preacher’s finale to be as good as it was, but it was filled with so many heart stopping moments, I had to come talk about it for a second. My heart is still pounding and the taste of tears is still in the back of my throat. Jesus effing Christ on a cross, I was not prepared for that in the best way.

Cassidy....just Cassidy. He took a journey that was, again, not what I was expecting. Definitely my favorite part of the episode. One fight scene was hilarious poetry in motion, the other was gut wrenching. So many times I found myself clutching my hands in front of my face and at one cliffhanger moment, I swear it felt like my heart stopped. When did I get so invested in these characters?!

Also, I am very interested in what’s going on in Hell and hope they follow through with that next season. Okay, I need to go calm down before work, sheesh.

BTW, I have been catching up your all’s posts, but no, not leaving many comments yet. I suck, I know :-/ But I’m just happy to be getting back in the swing of things. Have a good day, everyone!  

Oh, and I didn't lose power last night, though many people did and there are trees down all over Charlotte :-/ I thank Murphy's Law - I over prepared, so of course nothing happened, lol. 

Happy Birthday!

 It appears that last month I read poetry and time travel, and plot-relevant smut, and *really odd* smut, and slow-burn romance that didn't feel slow, and a couple of stories that boldly went, 'soulless vampires can be people, NOW WHAT?'

Let me tell you all about it... )

Fall television and Netflix

Voltron - still haven't rewatched the first seasons, but that's top of my list. 
 
AHS Cult - it's probably going to traumatize me, but after a few years away, I'm planning to give this new season of American Horror Story a chance. 
 
Defenders - I recently admitted to myself that for the most part, I don't like the Netflix section of the MCU. I never finished watching season 2 of DD, Luke Cage, or Iron Fist. But I will watch the Defenders so at least to have an opinion to share with Marvel Friend, LJ'ers and people at conventions. 
 
Agents of Shield - oh yeah, very excited and planning to review it. Fingers crossed that I have the time. 
 
Inhumans - I had hopes, but have heard very bad things about the movie. But I'll still watch it in case it crosses with AOS. 
 
Once Upon a Time - I am not planning to watch. The trailer I've seen was...not to my liking. And no, I still haven't watched the finale, and may not. Because I'm like that sometimes. 
 
Lucifer - planning to watch for sure. 
 
Orville - this is the new show I'm most excited about. It looks like so much fun, and has an actress from Eureka and Bobby from AOS. 
 
Star Trek Discovery - No. I'm fine with watching real Star Trek on Amazon, thank you. (And now I have Orville.)
 
Rebels - I'm as nervous as I am excited. People are going to die and it's going to break my heart. If I can, I will definitely review.

First - to my friends in Florida and other parts of Irma's path, I hope you're okay and safe. My prayers have been with you over the weekend. 

Second - if anyone's been wondering if I was kidnapped on my eclipse adventure, I wasn't, lol. I've just been in a very quiet, self-focused mood, working a lot mentally, emotionally, and physically on my self, with good results IMO. But I'd really like to come out of this shell now and reconnect with you all. It'll be in little steps, probably though. I know I said this last post, but then life happened again, lol. 

Weather - The effects of Irma have arrived in the form of cold wind and rain. I'm prepared to lose power tonight, as all it takes around here is a stiff wind, and they're still saying tornadoes could form. 

Metal health -  I'm good, had some ups and down as usual, but really, I think I've turned a corner over here. I'm just feeling really quiet. 

Education - I had a master's acupressure workshop a week ago, that I spent the time since the eclipse cramming for. It went very well. I also started studying/practicing Qi Gong and went back to taking ballet classes. 

Physical health - I've had to go back to eating pork and poultry due to.....needing more fat and protein I guess. I'm still weight training, and with the ballet, wow. I'm always hungry, but I've finally started to gain weight, and am closing in on 150 pounds for the first time in my life. I also have more endurance at work, which is very nice. 

TV Watching - Twin Peaks....just Twin Peaks, man. My mind has been through something real and amazing. Nothing could ever compare to it, and I will probably spend the rest of my life thinking about it. 

New show - Orville!! It's everything I hoped it would be, very fun with a good production level. 

Writing - all over the place - some fics to [community profile] who_contest , and a lot of writing/plotting/world building for Grey World and a new idea for a comedy series.  

I know this was short, but I plan to expand on some of this in individual posts. Take care, everyone. I hope your all's week got off to a good start, weather not withstanding. Love and HUGS xoxo




Happy Birthday!

When asthma attacks

dragonyphoenix: Blackadder looking at scraps of paper, saying "It could use a beta" (could use a beta)
[personal profile] dragonyphoenix
Okay, I went humorous with the title, but it wasn't funny. I make up Drunken Noodles and the oil in the jalapenos got into the air and triggered an asthma attack in my roommate. I knew perfume set her off but certainly had no way to predict this would. I've made the recipe here before without problems. I don't recall if she was out of town when I did. I know I used some other kind of pepper so maybe that made the difference.

In future, at least while I'm Kat's roommate, I'll be adding dried jalapenos after I take the dish off the heat.

Too busy

I have a ton of links I meant to share, but... *hands* Work has been v busy. And 2 out of 3 have started back in school/college. (Eldest is off to Cambridge (!!) at the end of the month.)

Also realised that I never shared the fact that Impish Girl did very well in her GCSE exams, including an A* in Latin Literature and a 9 (new grading system, 9 = very high A*) in English Literature. And she also passed maths (only just, but passing was the main thing).

(I can't even comprehend all the hurricanes etc. Too big to take in.)

Since I've had this written out ready to post for... way too long, I figured I might just as well share. This is just a fun extra little story - you may remember this first chapter, as I posted it a few years ago just for fun.

Summary: Missy meets the Seeker.
Setting: Immediately after Missy disappears/disintegrates in Death in Heaven (the S8 finale). Works rather perfectly as a little FitB to canon. :)
Characters: Missy, the Seeker.
