This year was actually a pretty good year-in-fic for me - I wrote just under 8000 words (which is a lot more than I wrote in 2011, heh) and 5 stories in total.

In October, I wrote one story for the Kaleidoscope 2012 Exchange:

Title: The Teahouse
Fandom: Throne of the Crescent Moon - Saladin Ahmed (and if you like fantasy, you should definitely read this book, too!)
Glimpses of Adoulla's life, after everything is over. This is post-book fic, and does contain a few spoilers as a result. This was written for Rhi, who asked for Adoulla opening a teashop.

In December, I wrote three stories for [ profile] yuletide and one story for the [ profile] hh_sugarquill Secret Santa exchange:


Main assignment:
Title: Aftermath
Fandom: Outlander - Diana Gabaldon
Jamie and John on the road, after Jamie 'kidnaps' him at the end of An Echo in the Bone. They talk. This was written for Marien.

Pinch hit:
Title: With You By My Side
Fandom: Journey (PS3 game)
A traveller makes his first journey, and finds someone to share it with. This was written for Moonsheen, who asked for a story about a young and inexperienced traveller meeting an older traveller.

Title: Rebirth
Fandom: Journey (PS3 game)
Two red cloaks travel together to the mountain. When one is reborn without her friend, will she ever find him again? This was written for Tanrien, who asked for a story about two players meeting and going the way together, and about what happens at the mountain before the players return to the beginning.

Sugarquill Secret Santa

Title: Children of the Revolution
Fandom: Harry Potter/Moulin Rouge fusion
James Potter is a boy pretending to be a man. Teddy Lupin is just trying to hide. What happens when their paths cross at the Moulin Rouge? This was written for [ profile] etacanis, who asked for AU angsty fic and gave a Moulin Rouge song as a prompt.

First of all, this was the fic I received for Yuletide:

Remixed (Pitch Perfect) - When a new a capella group emerges on the BU campus, both the Bellas and the Treblemakers find themselves in a difficult position. Will they be able to deal with this upstart rival in the world of a capella, and how will they do it?

I was so happy to get Pitch Perfect fic! This is a really sweet story, with the Bellas and Treblemakers teaming up to face off a rival group, and there are lots of little jokes between the characters, just like in canon :)


9 recs in 10 fandoms: Anne of Green Gables, Ballet Shoes, Black Books, Discworld, Never Mind the Buzzcocks RPF, Pitch Perfect, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Uncharted, West Wing/Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter )

Anybody have any other favourites to rec me?

Title: Bernard A. Black
Author: mk_tortie
Rating: R
Summary: What if Bernard's middle name wasn't actually Ludwig? And yes, this is a Black Books/HP crossover...

Bernard has been trying to pass off this morning as a particularly hallucinogenic hangover for almost three hours... )

Just realised I forgot to ever post about these!  I received a couple of gifts here on LJ at the beginning of January that I think need to be shown off:

First of all, from the lovely [ profile] chalada, not one, but TWO fantastic Luna drawings, to be found here:

Secondly, I took part in the [ profile] hp_nextgen_fest ([ profile] nqdonne made me!) and received a fantastic fic, which has Teddy/Victoire AND Albus Severus/Scorpius!  It's a really sweet read, with Teddy as a nervous new teacher and appearances from all the Potter kids :)  Find it here: Forwards, We Turn
Reveals are on Saturday so I will make a grand post about which fic I wrote then!  (I am actually very proud of it, hehe)

Anybody know Black Books at all who would fancy proof-reading a Black Books/HP one-shot? It's about 1200 words right now, but it's growing. It may stay a one-shot or it might end up as a chaptered fic, depending on where it ends itself. The HP elements are fairly small.

Yuletide assignments are in! And I'm so happy with what I got :D I could have written the first assignment (there was a bit of a mess up) but I much prefer the real one, so hurray!!

Here's my letter to whoever is writing to me:

Yuletide )

On fandom

I remember when I first discovered HP fic. I'd only ever seen Neighbours fanfic before, and I wondered if there was any out there for anything else. Finding and later Schnoogle was a revelation. I raced through every fic I found, some of which I now know are fairly awful, but it was just amazing to me that there was a way of filling that huge gap between books with something else HP related.

Now, however, I feel like I've exhausted HP. I know all the juiciest dramas, I've read the best and the worst, and what new stuff there is does not seem to engage me very often. Apart from the occasional incredible fic, I just see the same new ideas, over and over. And I'm really no longer bothered about reading them. In fact, I really enjoyed the escape from HP that Yuletide offered - that's why I've signed up for [ profile] femgenficathon and [ profile] smallfandomfest - I can write something other than HP. Trouble is, most people who move on seem to have gone to Supernatural, Bones or Doctor Who - and I just can't get into TV fandoms. I don't watch enough TV to know all the small references that make fanfic so interesting.

Anyway, the upshot of this is that I would like some recs. I need to read something, or anything! Get me into a fandom (but please not one that I will have to follow the canon religiously to understand) - I don't have to have read or seen the source to appreciate good fic as a starting point, so maybe something that would make me go out and read/watch the canon? I like movie fandoms - I wrote for 10 Things I hate about you, for example. I like fandom for children's books (Noel Streatfeild, Narnia, Secret Garden, Anne of Green Gables, Enid Blyton...). And I really do still want to know Harry Potter - if you can give me something to read that I'll be able to get into. Good long one shots or multi-chapters would be great. Lots of plot would be even better.

Pretty please end my disillusionment?

:( Even now the reveals are up, my [ profile] hp_springsmut recipient ([ profile] starrika) hasn't commented. Although having looked at her journal she hasn't posted in a month.. maybe she's lost her net connection.

Still, I feel a bit sad. Even though I got some nice comments, and tbh the story wasn't that great!

If anyone else would like a read, it's here:

Title: Of Rituals and Runes
Pairing: Cedric/Hermione
Rating: R
Summary: Cedric isn't as dead as everyone thinks, and there's only one person who can help him...

On a more positive note, I've decided to do more exercise to try and tone up my stomach for going on holiday in June. So woo. Although tonight's attempts at situps have left me with a wrenched shoulder.. ow!

Oh, and also, I'm going to be making an album with a German popstar who is funding the whole thing. Hurrah!

ETA: the link for the fic... yes, I am an idiot!
