One assignment, one pinch-hit.

The recip for my assignment hasn't responded to any of her recent gifts, either comment or kudos, so while I think it's kind of rude not to say thank you, at least it's not personal.
Title: as the wyrm turns
Fandom
: Merlin
Characters: Merlin, Gwen
Relationships: Merlin & Gwen
Rating: G
Summary: Magic had laws. His mother had been a lecturer of physics at Oxford for years before her sciatica made the constant standing an agony. Hunith had been the one to teach Merlin that all energy came from somewhere, that there was nothing new under the sun, and that every action had an equal and opposite reaction. She’d also been the one to observe that her son’s abilities and gifts followed those rules...most of the time.
I actually wanted to write a whole lot more to this - Arthur and Morgana and Merlin and Gwen all sitting down to dinner and having a conversation about magic and what it means in the world...

My second genex was a PH I picked up because I liked the recip, and because I could. It's not as brilliant as I'd envisioned it in my head (sometimes your brain does this, you know? And then it's not quite as magnificent as you thought it would be).
Title: stars of hope in dark despair
Fandom
: Rogue One
Characters: Chirrut Îmwe, Baze Malbus, Luke Skywalker
Relationships: Chirrut Îmwe & Luke Skywalker, Chirrut Îmwe/Baze Malbus (background)
Rating: G
Summary: There’s no palm trees, no sand, no watery inlets, no tower – not anymore. Yet Chirrut knows exactly where he is. He can feel it – hope and success in the midst of death and destruction – that this was both the ending and the beginning, like the tale of an ancient snake who endlessly swallowed its tail to represent time unending...
I've had an idea for the story from Luke's POV for some time, and after writing this, I have ides for more Chirrut-and-Baze backstory, but the issue of time and hijacked brain is big right now...

And a recent Captain Hill snippet:
Title: Office Gossip
Fandom
: MCU
Characters: Steve Rogers, Cameron Klein
Relationships: Maria Hill/Steve Rogers
Rating: PG
Summary: “So, I heard that Commander Hill is seeing someone.”

Steve looks sharply up from the missions Maria gave him to sign off. Then he remembers that the person Maria is seeing is him.
This was a snippet that sprang from another fic I wrote a while back - 'go down with your shield or come back upon it' - which featured Steve and Maria negotiating their relationship.

This one was...kind of fun. And silly. But fun, too.

It’s kind of nice to post a humourous Captain Hill ficlet I dug up off the HD last night, forget about it, and then only remember this morning when looking at my works page to discover it has 180 hits, 40 kudos, and 4 comments already.

I am starting to think that the Marriage Equality survey here in Australia will prove to be Australian Evangelicals’ ‘Trump’ moment. The ‘no’ side will win by a narrow margin, but it will be because half the people didn’t respond to the survey, and in the process, the most vicious ‘no’ responders (the 'loud and proud no' side) will have burned bridges beyond repairing for a generation already on the verge of asking, “Where is your God of mercy? We see none of His qualities in you.”

*grieves*

How I know I’m losing weight: my bra cups suddenly don’t fit my breasts. Which makes me feel like I’m walking around with my tits hanging out, never mind that I have two or three layers of clothing over the top.

Tonight, I have a quiet night. I don't even have to cook dinner; I prepped a lamb shoulder last night and stuck it in the slow-cooker this morning. I just have to get the sister to slice the potatoes and toss them in around midday...

Whiskey and Mirrors (1999 words) by shopfront
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Graphic Depictions Of Violence
Relationships: Mirror Ezri Tigan/Jadzia Dax

Summary: Ezri Tigan tries a little more universe hopping in service of the rebellion, but a technical malfunction derails her plans when it sends her spinning back in time.

Which is just another reminder that I need Deep Space Nine icons, yeesh. But I am also very amused that I ended up writing and receiving DS9 fic, and if I had more time I would totally celebrate with a rewatch. Because oh Trek of my heart.

So far today I've added 500 words to my Helen/Will WIP and spent some time re-constructing the (well, a fairly similar, I think) scene by scene structure that I had set up in the old scrivener file that was lost in the crash. It was really nice to work on something just because rather than because there's a deadline starting to loom. I often forget the joy of fannish creation when you can take time to slowly let it grow to it's potential, which is not better or worse but very different from the joy of seeing what I can craft in a certain time frame and within prompt restrictions.

I also completed edits on one of my giftbox fics, so only four more to go. I have two more sets of beta comments waiting for me to work them into their respective fics that I'm hoping to get to today as well, but we'll see how it goes. Both need some re-writing rather than just tweaks, and I slept terribly and have a headache and bah. Monday. But I really do need to get to them sooner than later before the deadline sneaks up on me.... I'll also be obsessively stalking last minute trick or treat sign ups throughout the day of course, heh.

My fic for Franzi and Gecko's fic exchange - a small friends-oriented exchange. You would not believe how many times I rewrote this assignment before I finally settled on this story. Apparently I have sedoretu on the brain...

Also, I have a headache, although that might be from consumption of too much alcohol.

We lost the grand final, but it took us half the game to find out feet and our opponents came out the gate swinging. (Plus, I'm not entirely sure they didn't stack their team with a couple of players from higher grades, but eh. What can you do? The organiser has known when the Grand final games were going to be played for at least a month now, but we only got the update for times on Wednesday.)

Friday night and Saturday were great - a weekend away with the women from church. I had some good conversations, including one with the speaker. (She's in a situation much like my mother's was thirty years ago, and I wanted to let her know that I appreciated her candour, but also to reassure her that her children are watching her, loving her, and appreciating her - that shit happens, but we grew up and deal with it (some better than others).

Earlyish post after a lateish one, so please feel free to checkin for two days in one place if that's easier for you (or multiple comments are always welcome, of course.) Had some enforced quiet lazing time this morning while my partner slept in, and it resulted in the best possible brainwave about my original nano concept. I'd been toying with urban fantasy set in London, but I was a bit worried I'd get bogged down in details and research if I wasn't careful which is obviously the opposite of what you want for nano, but the most perfect fictional city compromise came to me this morning so I guess I'm going full fantasy after all.

Still torn on how to track nano words though (knowing I'll have all or most of 50k coming down the pipeline will totally derail my writing motivation for everything else if I add them to my total, I just know it, but also - it's not November yet), so tentatively some goal words in the form of drafting up the concept, but that I may subtract later, so. *helpless hands*

Progress in either case, anyway, and I'm super excited to start writing this idea out now. Though I still need a proper plot to drop on top of my character, relationship, and now setting sketches. Dear November, please continue to take your time getting here...

Wrote just enough to neatly tie up my last giftbox fic, yay (and if anyone wants to beta a 4k no superheroes fake dating Ray/Mick AU, y'know, just holler.) I was hoping to sink my teeth into editing some of my earlier giftbox fics, but brain says nope too much hard thinking about fandom lately you have a headache go lie down. So I'm gonna go lie down.

But yay, I figured out a way to not let this baby spiral! It needs one last fleshing out pass before a proper edit, and there's so many spots where I would love to write out a whole additional fic of ideas, but it's whole and coherent and yup. That'll do, pig, that'll do.

I want to take one last look at the needy list, but I suspect that will be my actual last. There were a few other good prompts I was considering, but every letter that grabbed me super hard I've written something for, and I'm already up to like 11k or something ridiculous, so. Maybe time to move back to treats and other assignments and WIPs, I think. But oh, I've had a lot of fun here.
