Finest ass in the DCU


HI PEOPLE DID YOU MISS ME? Probably not because I still check my f-list and everyone's gone to Dreamwidth now. (I'm no different, I'm effulgent there, and also effulgent on plurk... but not the point.) I've gotten a few friend requests and private messages lately and I thought I'd make my stance on the fics I've locked clear for other people browsing and wanting to read.

So here: stock response all typed out and ready to go.

Hi! I appreciate the interest, but I'm afraid the fics I've locked are all locked for a reason. I'm sorry to do this because I remember back when I was first getting into fandom being really frustrated when I came across locked fic. I've gotten this request enough though that I thought I'd explain myself.

I haven't written much fanfiction lately, and none in the DC fandom. All the fanfiction you'll find here is at least several years old, and when I look back at it, I wince. I fell into a lot of tropes that now I can't stand, and I wrote a lot of stories that in hindsight are just... not good. Or at least not the kind of story I'd like to present as my own writing now. I know the pain of trying to find good Tim/Bart fanfic. I've been there. Here, try Archive of Our Own if you haven't already. I'm afraid I'm not going to be unlocking my fic, though, or friending people back since I barely use this journal, and I promise, you're not missing that much.

Thanks everyone who's interested in my fic! A lot are still open, so I hope you enjoy those! But please stop asking about the locked ones, I locked them for a reason, and they will stay that way.

I exist I guess?

I got 10k into NaNo and then sort of stalled. Not really doing it with anyone this year, so that was harder. I thought of a cool twist, though. Maybe someday I'll write this story in a serious way. Loving the hell out of the Buffy S9 comics. Loving the hell out of a few of the DCnU comics, hating with a burning passion some of the others.

If you haven't asked me for a Holiday Fic, do it! Even if you have, do a second!

I have lots of free spots open still. I'm offering free fics! Take them!

In other news, I have two icons with a character pointing a gun at the world. What's with that?
boo yeah?

Stolen from a bunch of people


Comment with a day, a fandom, a pairing, and a prompt, and I will write at least 200 words for you, to be posted on the day you claimed. Any fandom you know I'm familiar with is fair game, though I reserve the right to ask for a different prompt if you pick something I don't want to write, wacky crossovers or a fandom I haven't been into in a long time.

Encouraged / suggested fandoms are:

DC Comics
Marvel Comics
Star Wars (preferably movie, I'm not deep into the EU yet)
If you're friends with me, you've probably got a good idea of what I can write, man, just ask. Worst comes to worst I'll say no.

You may also specify canon, rp verse, or rp game (ex: counted stars, paradisa, etc) if you'd like.

I will TRY to follow through 8|

William the Bloody's Only Surviving Poem. Buffy/Spike. PG.

Title: William the Bloody's Only Surviving Poem
Pairing: Buffy/Spike, mentions of Spike/Drusilla
Medium: Poetry, some prose.
Rating: PG
Summary: A history of Spike's poetry and how almost all of it was destroyed.
Author's Note: Okay so, someone asked me on a meme if my headcanon said Spike had written any poems about Buffy, and I gave a response that more or less ended up being the prose part of this work. And then I decided I wanted to write the surviving poem. And then I started thinking about Spike's handwriting. I was sure if this poem existed, it was handwritten. Then I looked through some handwriting fonts until I found one I liked and added it to some stock paper and... ended up posting it. Hope you enjoy!

Giant List O' Fics 2.0

Because let's face it, the old one was a mess.

I'm not adding all the fics found here to this, but this is where all new tables and fics and whathaveyou will be collected. If you want the old stuff, check the tags or the post I just linked.

And yes, in theory this means I'm writing again. :-)

Shameless Soliciting

only I am filled with shaaaame.

So I kinda want to rename my Spike account (breakmychest), mainly because I came up with an awesome idea which I've registered so no one else can have it (breakmychest). Problem being, I find the idea of spending fifteen bucks to change my account name unacceptable, especially when I'm marooned in a foreign land forced to survive on only what food I can purchase and cook. (This land is Israel, for those just tuning in, and I'll be here for five months.)

ANYWAY. I may not be willing to spend money, but apparently I'm willing to whore my writing talents out to livejournal and write shitty livejournal fanfic for LJ tokens, but I'll get more if I win, and also my entry is the best, dammit, and the other person who's beating me was way behind me up until she solicited all her friends and that annoys me.

So vote? My entry is the breakmychest one.

Slash, slash, slash.

I've been thinking about it lately.

Recently I went through my old fic and f-locked a lot of it. Most of the stuff I f-locked was slash. Some of the slash is still open, never fear! It was just... the really weird ones, I guess. And the ones that I look back on and wince. I once swore I'd never lock away my fic, but hey, times change, so do people.

Those of you who've been with this journal a long time know, I used to love slash. It was maybe 80% of what I wrote, with femslash and het and gen filling in the last 20%. My newer friends know me as someone who might occasionally express an interest but would never write or roleplay it. Unless it was canon. I'm a canon relationships stickler.

I guess the part that bugs me most is the people who like slash exclusively. But I've felt the same about people who only like het in the past, so the moral of the story is variety is good? I think I've pretty much decided that I should go back to being the Shana that doesn't give a damn what other people think. I'll write what I want, and it'll be awesome.
