Mostly this year it has been Trope Bingo, but I do have some other stuff out so far. Still floundering on what I want to do next - Jukebox is pretty much in the bag, and I'm hoping to finish it this weekend. Treats maybe? Something else? I'm open to suggestions!

So, I successfully Trope Bingoed! I have been saving the stories to post here all at once, and shall do so now. I have been generally consumed by some Diablotin characters of late, and so I decided to focus entirely on them, or at least on one of them. The stories here should all be accessible, as it is all either pre-campaign/canon stuff (so background that is established here and not anywhere else), or alternative universe. The setting is what miiiight make is not accessible, I guess, to others. But feel free to give 'em a shot and let me know what you think!

I realy am! Someday I need to go through and fix up my index - for now, I will shamefully let it scroll away, and then future date it again once it is a bit more useful -_-

This is basiucally another catch-uo post, to let anyone over here know what I have been writing.... Since joining [livejournal.com profile] fan_flashworks I have actually been pretty good at writing regularly, if not prolifically! I'll stick all the Adventure World stuff in this post, and do a separate one to capture the few (I mean like....2 :p) stories in other fandoms. I continue to delude myself that you can pretty much follow the Adventure World stuff thtrough fic alone, without knowing the fandom (by which I mean... being in the game >.>), but I don't think anyone is buying it :p

In the center of the room a young boy appeared, bawling and falling instantly to his knees with a surprising amount of force, adding new pain to his general upset.

So! This year I have been rather busy, and I didn't get to write half the things I had ideas for Yuletide. I haven't *read* half the things I would like to either, though of course I have found a hundred zillion really lovely stories! Anyone who is interested (for those of you might read this who aren't already Yuletide-savy) should Check out the main archive for 2011 and also the stuff in Yuletide Madness, which is mostly shorter stories and still frequently of very high quality :) Maybe some year I will be organized enough to make some kind of coherent rec post, but this is not that year!

I wrote two things this year, with a total word count of about 18000 words - about 4000 words and several stories less than last year, but I am very happy with both! )

To look at this journal, you might get the impression that I haven't written a thing all year, other than one little drabble. This is not the case! In fact I've written quite a number of things...They just haven't made it over here. Shame on me! Yes, shame. Well tonight I aim to remedy that! not to say I am actually going to post each individual story... no no, I'm *far* too lazy for that! but I will post the links and summaries to their locations on my Archive Of Our Own site, and encourage you to read them there, and leave feedback either here or there if you have any particular opinion on the works :)

I'm going to divide up my postings in to larger chunks, by fandoms and rating, so as to flood you all with a smaller number of things that you probably won't read, or have already read :3

I was talking to my sister this morning about her Changeling game, which inspired me to look through some of the older material I have on my hard drive, and found this.... written in 2003! Wacky. I did really like that character, and I also really like my narrator and story structure, though I have no particular recollection of who they were...

Practically the only character in this that is mine is Jeremy, and a lot of the material is drawn from [livejournal.com profile] ladyiolanthe's Changeling campaign of... many many years ago @_@, and most of the dialog comes from irc logs. Thanks to the same for some edits I found in the old file! Also, there may be some formatting weirdness, though I've tried to clean it up as best as possible.

I finally figured out how to make my Diablotin/Inception crossover feasible :V

Extraction…!

Sanadhìl paused thoughtfully as he saw her to the door.

“If I do learn anything of use with this business, I’m certain you can find some way of extracting it.”

“Of course…!” She’d smiled, and since then, she’d been giving the matter heavy consideration. It seemed he had thought of something, but he couldn’t tell her without compromising the situation.

Ilphère was no enchanter, but there were other means of accessing the mind. Her smile widened, her countenance becoming more animated as she the considered the possibilities of her craft…

Sanadhìl watched her go, hoping his trust was not misplaced.

Curiousity doesn't kill the cat, necessarily. Sometimes it just drives the cat bat-shit crazy for an indefinite period of time. Maybe the moral here is not to randomly awaken thousand year old evil constructs, even if it isn't strictly on purpose. Or maybe the moral is that when they demand you feed them your peer as a sacrifice, you should indulge them. Time will tell which of these, if either, our hero protagonist has taken to heart. If he ever recovers...

R for some fairly hard-core self-destructive crazies.

Look, something not Star trek related! It is gaming related though. I wrote this little sermon for a character I kind of play in a LARP. She's essentially a nun - she belongs to a holy order that worships the God(ess?) of Secrets and Darkness, Dietremen. This isn't going to get a lot of circulation in game, and ai'm an attention whore, and also it was a really interesting challenge, so I'm posting it here. Enjoy?
