A Spell of Deduction (co-written with [info]lareinenoire) WIP
(Sherlock/Potterverse crossover)

LJ or AO3

A Weekend in the Country WIP
“It may interest you to know, John, that while Sherlock is of course my younger brother, he is not my only brother.”
“Oh god,” John said, pulling himself upright, “there are more of you?”
Wherein John finally meets Sherlock’s brothers (all of them) and his mother, imagines the Christmas dinners, and learns a great deal more about his flatmate and himself.

Comrades in Arms
As John came to, he decided he had just about had it with being kidnapped.

Fetch WIP
Only Sherlock Holmes could manage to die and still be in mortal danger.

And now John Watson's going to have to rescue him. And punch him in the face. Probably in that order.

Inspired loosely by the folk ballad "Tam Lin."

Five Ways Sherlock & John Didn't Get Together, Plus One Way They Did
Five (silly) ways John and Sherlock didn’t actually get together, plus one way they did
LJ or AO3

Genius Loci
Sherlock’s an archeologist chasing a priceless artefact. John’s a local who knows a thing or two about medicine. Good thing too, what with that stab wound Sherlock seems to have acquired.

The only thing worse than being kidnapped by scientists is being kidnapped by scientists with shoddy methodology. Good thing Sherlock’s got a new friend in the next cell.
LJ or AO3

Quantum of Sherlock
A series of interconnected drabbles featuring Sherlock Holmes as MI6's Quartermaster and John Watson as Agent 007. Inspired by too many viewings of Skyfall.

Sacrifices Must Be Made
John’s not sure what to expect when he offers himself as a human sacrifice, but it definitely wasn’t this. Apparently the stories he’s heard about dragons left out a few important details.

But at those moments, with Sherlock pressed against his body, arms wrapped around John, John’s hand in Sherlock’s hair, the feeling of Sherlock’s mouth against John’s bare flesh, John could know Sherlock was back, could ground himself in his presence in a way that helped banish his lingering nightmares.

The Once and Future BAMF Series
Here Be Dragons
From a kinkmeme prompt: Sherlock is an irritating and bored version of Merlin. John is a dubious, reincarnated Arthur who wants to pretend he's not a complete BAMF.

So Far From Normal Series
So Far From Normal
John forgets, sometimes, that normal people don’t live like he does.

A Spell of Deduction Cover Art
Heralding the Fall
Come Along, Watson


When John mentions cutting Samantha's hair, he's unprepared for the tantrum that follows. But since he's got a Rougarou to kill, he's leaving Dean to deal with her.

Full Circle

“C’mon," Dean said, "You gotta try pie, Cas, it’s like… the whole point of being human.”

Sam rolled his eyes. “Right, Dean. Forget the collected works of Shakespeare. The Taj Mahal. Baked goods are way more important.”

Dean didn’t look up from where he was delicately shaving curls of vanilla ice cream off the frozen block and onto the plates with a fragile plastic spoon. “Dude, talk to me when Hamlet comes in a delicious flaky buttery crust.”


The Avengers
Deux ex Machina (Tony Stark/Steve Rogers)WIP
By the time Steve noticed something was definitely off about this particular rescue, the sea serpent was hitting on him. MCU!Avengers/Greek Mythology fusion.

The Mind has Mazes (Tony Stark/Bruce Banner)

Through the machinations of his late father’s regent, Tony has been sent as Athen’s annual tribute to the Labyrinth at Knossos. If he wants to escape, he’s going to have to solve the maze’s mysteries, and the biggest one is that of the monster at its center. Movieverse!Avengers/Greek Mythology fusion.

The Hobbit (2013 film)
Making Amends
Hobbits place great value on social harmony. In fact, they've developed some... unique... cultural practices to help everyone get along.
Of course, no one told Thorin Oakenshield that.

Welcome to Night Vale
The Ides (WIP)

This last broadcast was odd, though. In the almost a year Carlos had lived here… which was hard to believe and not just because the sun had a tendency to set at the wrong time and sometimes Thursdays… skipped… (“Listeners, it’s like my mother used to say,” Cecil had once said. “Time flies. And so do badgers. So you’ll probably want to take an umbrella with you today.”)

Cecil had never not been on the radio. Even when he’d clearly had a cold and his congestion had made an utter yet strangely adorable mess of all of his glottal consonants. Cecil was The Voice of Night Vale, and in this town that was more reliable than the sunrise, death, or taxes. Well, maybe not taxes. Even if this year Carlos had to pay them in formaldehyde jars full of rats. (He was reasonably certain he hadn’t paid that way in previous years, but then, he wasn’t an accountant.)


Night Vale Syndrome

Inasmuch as an inanimate entity such as an incorporated city could be considered to have human emotions and preferences, Carlos was beginning to suspect Night Vale didn’t like scientists.

But something here seems to like him.

What have you been up to? Major life changes? Same old same old?

Moved halfway across the US to start a PhD program in Communication/media studies in New England. That's right, I'm now a professional fangirl.

What fandom are you in/do you spend most of your time in?
It's been so much SPN lately. The 221B bullshit and the long wait between news has me a bit burnt out on Sherlock, which I'm hoping is a temporary state. We'll see what the Christmas Special does.

Where do you hang out online?
Lately? Nowhere (see answer to question #1) but a bit on Tumblr and the antidiogenes chat room when I have time.

What are you reading?
a LOT of communication theory, audience research, qualitative data analysis... and Destiel fic.

What are you watching?
See answer to #1. I haven't watched anything that hasn't been for research in weeks.

What are you making?
Poor life choices, mostly. I have a bunch of WIPs I'm hoping to find time for, and of course loads of coursework and some conference papers and abstracts.

What are you squeeing about today?
Generally? Very excited to be living closer to lareinenoire and reluctantabandon.

If you could rope old fandom friends into a new fandom, it would be...
Not to be a downer, but I'll pass on this.

I should really watch/read/dive into _______ and then come talk to you about it!
The Hydra Trash Party. I mean, if Captain American and/or non-con is at all your thing, it's a treasure trove. A manageable place to start might be this rec list. Alternately, if you're not ready for full trash mode, check out the Stucky D/s Art Exchange (NSFW!!!) and the Stucky D/s Fic Exchange(in which collection I have three works). I would love to squee with you about any of this.

What else is on your mind?
Grad school. Short and long term research interests. Fandom spaces. Trying to find useful new patterns of work and life in a completely new and unfamiliar space. Academia. Monsters. Imposter syndrome.

Have now heard back from all of the schools. One acceptance (UMass Amherst), the rest said no.

Work drama. Busy. Tired. The usual.

Just a quick head's up that I'll be in Seattle from tomorrow until Sunday for Sherlock Seattle (among other things). I don't remember if anyone from my f-list will also be there but figured what the heck!
04 December 2014 @ 10:22 pm
So it turns out that having a job where you CAN'T just read and write fic at work and which also leaves you kinda physically exhausted, combined with wading through grad school applications and GREs and shit, really cuts into your fic writing time. >_<

This has been another Statement of the Obvious. 
Dean Winchester's Secret (Angel) Boyfriend (11195 words) by Winter_of_our_Discontent, reluctantabandon
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Castiel/Dean Winchester
Characters: Dean Winchester, Jo Harvelle, Ellen Harvelle, Castiel, Sam Winchester, Ash (Supernatural)
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Still Hunters, Humor, Misunderstandings, Canon-Typical Violence, Bisexual Dean Winchester, Dramatic entrances, Cas is a BAMF, POV Outsider, Community: deancasbigbang

Dean Winchester isn't exactly a team player. So when he starts mentioning a new Hunting partner, Ellen and Jo Harvelle aren't sure whether they should be worried or relieved.

But they're starting to get the feeling there's something important Dean's not telling them about Cas...

We did it, it's done, and it's awesome, and there's even art! Check it out on AO3!

Taking the GREs tomorrow.

Studying for them has given me a kind of inchoate fury (outside of really really hating Algebra no seriously) because it's all so OBVIOUSLY futile and unrelated to the field of study I'm attempting to get into (Seriously, I'm going into the Humanities. Media Studies. There is NO relevance to being able to remember order of operations or how to multiply exponents). It's so clearly there as a gatekeeper, as a barrier of money and time, meant to make things harder for the sake of making them harder, and it's costing me several hundred dollars for the privilege of being thus incommoded.

Wish me luck!
Happy National Coming Out Day!

So I'm bisexual. Which you probably knew if you've spent more than five minutes with me at a con. I'm open-ish about it, and have been getting open-i-er as I go along, as one does the less one gives a shit. I've known I was attracted to women as well as men since I was... oh, maybe fourteen? But I've primarily had relationships with male-identifying persons, so there's been a lot of bi invisibility (because as you know, bisexuals don't exist) which, coupled with the lingering and idiotic sense that I'm not allowed to call myself bi unless it's like, fifty-fifty, instead of sixty-forty or whatever, means I'm probably less out than I would be otherwise, except in fandom settings where I'm pretty super out.

So yeah. Bi. I'm more likely to be attracted to men than women, but I am definitely sexually and romantically interested in persons of pretty much any gender expression I've run across.

And speaking of gender and unrealistic binaries... so I've struggled to some degree with gender identity for.... oh, a while now. More as I learned that there are terms and theories and all the wonderful stuff you come across on tumblr. And again, part of the problem has been that I knew I wasn't trans, and I didn't seem to be genderqueer in the sense of being fifty fifty (fucking binary), and I still felt more female than male, so was there really anything to talk about and maybe I was just overthinking it...

Fuck it. I'm genderfluid. I've run across the term "demigirl" and believe it to be a potentially useful descriptor. If I figure out something better I'll start using that.

Sexuality is a spectrum, and gender is a spectrum, and I don't fall exactly in the middle but I'm not at either end either. And if there are words that help explain myself, I'd like to use them.

What does this mean for YOU, dear reader? Pretty much nothing, in the sense that I don't see this changing anything. I'm who I was yesterday and will be tomorrow, allowing for the vagarities of time and character development. I will answer to literally any gender pronouns, no, seriously, I feel like picking would be limiting myself. (Realising that was kind of a clue. Just like realising that part of the reason I like cosplaying men is that it's a super safe way to play with gender expression.)

Anyway, love you all, have a nice day.

I have purple hair.

It makes me very happy.

Back from Denmark! It was lovely, especially going to the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde (I'd actually been there.... twenty or so years ago? I should post a picture from each trip.) We did a 50 minute trip in a longboat, actually rowed it out, sailed, rowed it back in. I get what the big deal is about sailing now. Not to mention pillaging the Irish coast.

Roskilde has a medieval cathedral that functions as a royal masoleum, also awesome.

Started the new job the day after I got back. So far so good, though it's been crazy since until my two weeks are up at the old job I'm doing my shift at one, then driving to the other. Luckily that'll end this week.

Planning an actual post about the job switch but I'd like to get through my first week first.
