DO NOT WANT:  Pregnancy, Death (unless stated), Sadfics (unless stated), super heavy kink (you know the kind).

DO WANT:  Anything else ranging from fluff to gen to intense to explicit (esp. when stated, but always up for all).

Foyle's War
Look, I'm a huge sucker for happy queer endings and we got none, so I'm super demanding happy fics here.  No big AUs for this fandom, please (obvs, canon-divergent is fine since ;___; ).

  • Christopher/Rex/Andrew:  Rex is a little too fond of the Foyles, and they're much too fond of him.  Give me happy times and double romance.  There was a fic that totally made me ship Christopher/Rex, but Andrew/Rex is my ultimate OTP, so the combo is perfect.

  • Helena/Dick/Tiger:  Spy sandwich, aww yeah!  Give me happy spy times, a mission where they all work together, downtime in a safe house, anything.  Definitely good with sexytimes.

  • Hamlet/Laertes/Ophelia:  I was literally just thinking about a fic like this yesterday, with a Hamlet that goes for both brother and sister, so give me everything.  OK with incest/incest references.
  • Hamlet/Horatio/Ophelia:  Hamlet with his two best loves, the girl he'll marry and his best friend.  Give me something domestic, maybe how Hamlet sets up his house with the two of them, how they feel about him and each other.

DCU (comics)
These are gonna range from fun to dark so bear with me.

  • Apollo/Dick/Midnighter:  I'm so here for established couples adding a new partner to things, whether permanent or temporary.  Since they are Superman/Batman expys, maybe something about who they represent to Dick (awkward daddy kinks are my favorite kinks).
  • Tommy Elliot/Dick/Bruce:  Thomas looks identical to Bruce, but acts completely different.  I'm good with dark!fic here, the two of them fighting over Dick, Tommy being a right prick while Dick's trapped with him while Bruce watches.  Or for something darker, Bruce sharing his favorite toy with Tommy.
  • Original Titans pile:  Anything is good here.  Orgies with banter, just hanging out at the Titans Tower.  Either adults or late teens, all of them trying to figure out who they are and who they like, etc.
  • Thomas Wayne Jr./Dick/Bruce:  I'm so down for them fighting over Dick, what with Thomas saying he'd find Dick anywhere and whatnot.  Again, also good for Thomas fucking Dick while Bruce watches.
  • Slade/Dick/Bruce:  I've written this pair with the Slade bones Dick while Bruce watches, but it literally never gets old, so if that's what you want, then please go for it.  Also, remember when Dick went undercover as Renegade?  Oh yeah....  Battle for who can make Dick come first, dominance battle, Dick's highkey thing for brooding older men.

  • Clark/Lois/Bruce:  Established couple bringing in a third, either as Batman or with them all in their everyday personas.  Remember when Lois dressed up as Robin and Clark as Batman?  Yeeeeee.

Sherlock Holmes
  • Mycroft/Watson/Sherlock:  Competitive brothers competing over Watson is my jam and my jelly.
  • Sherlock/Mary/John:  Established couple (John/Mary) bringing in John's boyfriend.  Bonus for trans man Sherlock (I will love you 5ever).

  • Gozaburo/Seto/Mokuba:  Give me some dark shit.  What if Gozaburo hadn't thrown himself out a window?  Death-T with that looming shadow over Kaiba's head.  The Kaiba brothers learning how to manage their father.  Incest very OK here, because I'm looking for Dark!fic just this side of death.
  • Kaiba/Mokuba/Yugi:  When the Kaiba brothers want something, they get it.  Incest OK.
  • Jonouchi/Kaiba/Yugi:  Everybody's crushing on everyone else, so why not get busy?
  • Jonouchi/Kaiba/Yami:  The top duelists competing in more ways than one.
  • Kaiba/Yugi/Yami:  Kaiba's a sucker for two Yugis.

  • Galavant/Isabella/Sidney:  More travel adventures, long nights sharing one room at an inn, maybe in their established happily ever after.  Bonus for breaking out into song.

A quick round-up of exchange stories I received over the summer.  I do recommend all of these stories and hope you'll click through to give these deserving authors the hit and a kudos.  :-)

Not Prime Time

Like a Rock by [ profile] klutzy_girl - An alternate universe story about Grant Ward fitting into the team on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  It's set in the early seasons, prior to the reveal that Ward was HYDRA, and deals with him questioning his own loyalties.  I enjoyed this, because it's a sweet version of events that would have changed some major things in the series.

[community profile] fic_corner 
Sweetening the Loaves by [ profile] Missy - I hoped very much for a book-verse Little House on the Prairie story, and this more than delivered.  A sweet, introspective look at Caroline Ingalls, just as the family has begun to settle in De Smet.  I really loved the author's take on Caroline and Charles' marriage, and her voices are all spot on.  Highly recommend, especially as there is so little in this fandom.

[community profile] rarepairfest 
Time and Again by [ profile] DesertScribe - A crossover between The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings.  Young Boromir ends up in Narnia and meets the Pevensies, and over time he and Susan fall in love - but they are never together for very long, and there's a lot of angst and adventure in their path.  It's a really lovely story and I just love the idea of Susan and Boromir together, especially the way this author makes it happen.

[community profile] genex 
Room to Grow by [ profile] StarSpray - Harry Potter is a fandom where the gen possibilities are endless; this one knocks it out of the park.  Neville, Ginny, and Luna, learning to deal with what happened to them at Hogwarts while Harry was off hunting horcruxes.  It's set post-series, but pre-epilogue.  I can't convey in words how much I love the way this author wrote Neville, in particular.  He's perfect.  This story is definitely worth a read.

[community profile] crossovering 
And Bide the Danger by Anonymous - A Narnia/Harry Potter crossover, answering the idea of Susan Pevensie existing in the wizarding world, and having an encounter with Amelia Bones.  The author set this during Amelia's Magical Law Enforcement training, and there is a wonderfully on-target guest appearance, and some incredible world-building to root the reader in the Harry Potter 'verse.  I loved all my stories this summer, but this one made me feel spoiled.  It's very sophisticated writing and I applaud the author for working to fully bring to life both universes so seamlessly.

TITLE: We Could Go to Mexico
FANDOM: Gone with the Wind
CHARACTERS: Scarlett O'Hara, Melanie Wilkes

FOR: [ profile] Missy, for [community profile] genex

SUMMARY: Scarlett is carrying the load at Tara, but she isn’t alone.

NOTES: Regarding canon divergence: Will Benteen has yet to arrive at Tara, but Scarlett has had a visit from Jonas Wilkerson regarding taxes. It's spring 1865, just before the war ends.

Story also archived at AO3.

The cotton yield was going to be miserably small, and Scarlett was afraid. )

I haven’t inflicted my music taste on you for ages, so here are several Kurt Weill songs from the movie September Songs. It’s basically a bunch of artists performing song by Weill in the same location, interspersed with information about Weill, and some original recordings. Here are my favourites.

I'll post again when it does go live, but if you want to big on something, it's always good to check in early!

I hope you're enjoying this. I much prefer being written to (or about) to having written, but yes, all right, I'll concede that a near-death incident is enough to win you a proper response, if only because I apparently need to remind you that you aren't allowed to die yet. I have a signed contract saying so, and you dwarves are sticklers for contracts. Brief aside: I took great amusement in imagining your reaction at being lumped in with "you dwarves."

My hand already hurts, Varric. Why in the world would you do this for fun?

Hang on a moment -- there we go, back again. Carver was rooting around in my pack for something. Gave him a kick in the rear. Serves him right, the idiot; I knew someone was stealing my jerky.

Anyway, it's a good thing you provided me with this list of questions as a guide to letter-composition (Hawke said sarcastically). You can be a bit of a control freak, Varric, has anyone ever told you that? Other than me -- my memory isn't so bad I don't remember mentioning it half a dozen times.

Oh, fine. On with the letter.

1. Dear Varric,

(That was admittedly a bit belated, but I never really feel as though our conversations have beginning and ends -- it seems that even on paper, we're halfway into the discussion already.)

2. I live!

(Didn't you indicate this is the most crucial piece of information to convey? Vaguely recall something about "life and livelihood," perhaps paired with an admonishment about concealing injuries. In the interest of honesty, I offer a complete catalog:

Mood continues to fall. Steady decline, like a semi without the power to crest the hill. All cylinders firing, and ever slipping back. Getting into worrying territory, I think. Don't want to make an appointment with the pdoc until my blood work for the surgeon comes in and I know whether we need to think about getting rid of the Lamictal. I am safe, it's just long days of pain ahead. Luckily, I have nothing I need to do in the coming days, so I have the option of hiding in a pillow fort in my bed, wrapped in a blanket with my doggies cuddled against me, and trying to shut it all out. I rarely take this option, however. Brave face, chronic illness guilt, what have you. I am the salt in my own wounds.

This has taken me so long to do, I feel almost embarrassed to post it, because unlike some of the more detailed ones I've done, this one was straight-forward, but it was lingering just because I couldn't work out who to cast as one character. (I'm still not sure who it was I must have had in mind, but I found a suitable stand-in. After, er, nearly all year...)

From the [community profile] isurrendered meme, [personal profile] john_amend_all gave me this prompt. If I had remembered that he threatened to do this several years ago, I would have tried to ward it off, but I didn't, so here we are:

One of those obscure centuries-old cults has a ritual: Once every hundred years, on the night of the winter solstice, the chosen one must stand at a particular place (where ley lines converge) and will become an inspired bard and prophet.

... Except that since the last ritual, an office block has been built on the site, and the mystic powers end up being bestowed on the coffee machine. Hilarity, as they say, ensues.

Which is coming to an LJ near you some time soon as:

New (to me) TV:

Gotham 1x22 - 2x03
Ghosted 1x02
The Orville 1x05
The Brave 1x03
The Mindy Project 6x05
Lucifer 3x02
The Mick 2x03
Fresh Off the Boat 4x02
Black-ish 4x02
Brooklyn Nine-Nine 5x03
Lethal Weapon 2x03
This is Us 2x03

Arrow 6x01
Legends of Tomorrow 3x01
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend 3x01
Once Upon a Time 7x02
Grey’s Anatomy 14x04
The Gifted 1x02

Re-Watched TV:


Movie (re-watched):

Beetlejuice (1988)


I’m just not feeling Ghosted. I probably won’t be continuing with that.
I also think I’m done with The Orville, The Brave, The Mick, This is Us, American Housewife, Once Upon a Time and Grey’s Anatomy. Time will tell though. I often try and give up shows and just can’t.
But I’ve been watching way too much TV and I want to get back to reading more again and that means some of these shows have to go.

I was happy with the most recent episode of Once Upon a Time, but happy in a way that makes me feel relieved and able to let the show go. I’m good with how things ended in season 6 and it completes the story that I was most interested in, so I think I’m good now.

I’m loving Kevin (probably) Saves the World. It’s weird that I’m loving it. I wasn’t even planning to give it a chance, so not my kind of show at all, but I’m loving it, so I’ll keep watching. I’m trying to cut down to shows that I really love, that make me feel good, or at least don’t leave me feeling worse. I think This is Us is a great show, but I don’t want to watch it anymore. It stresses me out way too much and leaves me feeling crappy and drained and I feel that way enough without TV, so it’s going.

I loved the season opener for Legends of Tomorrow. Pure crack, totally batshit crazy and they’re embracing it. ♥

This week’s horror/halloween movie was Beetlejuice (borrowed from the library). Another movie I have seen but the daughter has not. She enjoyed it.

So, very annoyingly, there's a set of spambots hitting AO3. All for a streaming sports site. (It is streamonline247 (dot com), and it also has an AO3 account by that name with nothing posted.) I know it took someone I know about 10 days between applying for and getting an AO3 account, this is also rather worrying that they're willing to put a bunch of emails in queue to register and hit all at once.

(I feel sorry for Abuse; I have IFTTT giving me all stories that come up just for Tokusatsu fandoms and got three of the spambots. One spammed a lot of fandoms that had "ghost" in the name, therefore hitting Kamen Rider Ghost and Ghost Soup Infidel Blue.)

1. The world out there seems set to get worse and worse in every way at the moment. I feel bad that I have nothing to offer, but frivolous fannish things, but so it is.

2. I have my Yuletide assignment, but obv. can't talk about it. I have mixed feelings about whether I can do it proper justice, but it is a fandom I love and wanted to get, and hopefully I'll manage something decent in the end.

3. In the department of inevitable irony or something, the GRO have resumed their test pilot of offering PDFs for (some) historical certificates online for £6 instead of £9.20. I had been saving birthday money for this moment since May in case it ever came. Guess who finally gave up on that ever being a thing and spent the last of the money on Sunday? Yes, me. (The wretches! The rotters!) Anyway, for those also into UK family history, it's running for three months or so this time, so don't miss out.

4. I wrote a frivolous thing for no reason at all for the first time in forever. It was, of course, still stupidly obscure. Whoever it was - at least two people, I think, or maybe three - recommended me the Daisy Dalrymple books for light mystery reading, I blame you. All/both of you. Ficlet of pure froth: Foiled (G, 490 words, Alec/Daisy.)
