My Year in Fanfic 2010!

This year was the year of Finishing Things You Start!  I finished Bicker, and Hellfire, and Volume II of Emily's Notebooks, Even Fake Empire has technically reached the point where I can start the next storyline (although I might need one more fic to fill in the middle bit).  I even extra-finished Scott's Emma, and posted the second half of Chelsea Hotel.  I only started two fics I didn't finish (maybe 3, if you count the LotS one), (still amazing compared to last year, where I started 9 fics I didn't finish.)  And I wrote two complete long multi-part fics, both which were posted in a consistent and timely manner!  How shocking!

 

I also had a weird discussion about Mermaid sex, which spawned a crackfic of awesome and made my first Podfic!  My First Podfic  (I'd swear I don't sound like that at all!)  Other awesome things: Dragon Pr0n!  (you know who you are), and finally someone else writing (and posting) Emma/Emily (Thank you [livejournal.com profile] tamoline !).  I have been gifted a few snippets which have made me happy, (the lycanthropy one was sooo awesome) but I am no longer posting alone in a bitter Jemily world!

 

 

The Fic )

 

Rather insipid questions: )

 

So, what do other people think fit the bill for...

 

Best Story

Most Fun

Most Disappointing

Most Sexy

Most Unintentionally Telling?

 

In other news, the first semester of grad school went off pretty well.  I learned a lot about Old Irish, and wrote two massive papers on it.  And I want to thank everyone who helped me out when I was really frustrated with my novel.  It's now around 450 pages, and I'm nearing the end (nearing) of this last phase of revisions.  It's kind of astonishing that I picked it up at the beginning of this year at about 60 pages, a female MC, and a bare outline mainly cribbed from random nightmares.

 

And expect chapter 2 of Sweet Talk 101 tomorrow.  I'm chasing out the kinks in the plot tonight.

 Yay!  X-men has its own sexy new page on P&P!  (Really, that header is awesome.)  And Emily's Notebooks is up!  In its beautifully embarrassing completeness.  There is something rather coy about the length of an LJ post that you lose when you have the whole things just sitting there with bolded chapter headings.  Why is my own writing so embarrassing to me?

My drawing is generally worse, but whatever.  This post should take up more space, and thus City on the River inspired doodlings again.  (I totally drew the picture of Emma as a stripper in my Syntax notebook and now, when I'm hunting for PredP or whatever it ALWAYS opens to that page!)



Eventually I will suck less at photoshop.  Not yet though.

And if you're bored, Wycynic has written a bunch of hilarious prompt fics.  Go read them.

Edited for ADD:

And ralst has said that she's going to start hosting podfics!  I love podfics!  They are the best thing since... um, lightboxes (this made sense in my head).  Sooo, people with good reading voices and recording equipment... Please?  Supernatural Fanfic is perfectly fine but not every podfic should be boyslash.

 So, it's pretty clear that babysitting is a vastly traumatizing experience.  I've started to... enjoy playing Barbies.  But I have the one I like, who is called Devin, and a plumber, with mad awesome cowboy boots and socks.  And that was way too much information.

Note to self: six year olds should not be allowed to watch Lady Gaga videos.

But today!  Oh, Today!  We watched the Barbie movie Mermadia.

First of all, the etymology of the word mermadia, is so puzzling to me that it makes me want to cry.  I mean, fine, Mermaid plus the greek-type 'ia' ending like in Alexandria, but still.  Why does that sound like some sort of weird disease?  A fungal infection?

Anyways, the real point is that Elina and Nori had clearly massive subtext potential.  Let's build friendship, teamwork and trust!  yay!  And then Elina gets a tail (she was a fairy before), and Nori looks at her and is like "OMG, you're so-"  and Elina cuts her off before she can say "f*ing hot" with a tail, which is vastly disappointing.  And (this is probably a Spoiler Warning, but seriously, Mermadia) there is about a thirty second period where Elina realizes that she will have to stay as a mermaid forever and never regain her wings!  She despairs.  And it was the perfect opportunity for Nori to jump in and say, "I know it sucks, but I'm going to show you all the good things that come with a tail," wink, nudge...

And then I hit a roadblock, because there is a very big problem with mermaid sex.
How does it work?  If they're just fish on that half, with that sort of system, then it can't have anything to do with reproduction, but if they're mammals?  Has anyone read some good, scientifically plausible mermaid pr0n?

Is this a really stupid question?

This is why I hardly ever write personal posts.  I am *so* weird.  *bangs head on wall*
But all in all, Mermadia was not that bad a movie.  Hilariously awful at times, and illogical and pointless, but it had its moments.

My Year in Fanfic Meme, 2009 (Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] wizened_cynic )

This was clearly the year I started writing porn.
Holy Crap this is a lot of fic... )

It's too long to not go behind a cut.  This is disgusting.  No wonder I haven’t gotten anything else done. 

Does anyone want to suggest their own for these categories?

I was moping about, being generally unimpressed with life, and then checked wycynic's journal and realized that I had forgotten about yuletide!  There was indeed quite a bit of not very good stuff, but then there were the astonishing things.  And thus, recs:

Astonishing:

Fandom: I Capture the Castle, Dodie Smith
The Account Book – Perfect, and full of so many precise gorgeous details. It feels like you’re back in that world.  I didn't realize how much I missed it until I got to the bit about Topaz...

Fandom: In This House of Brede, Rumer Godden
Journeys – I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this. I loved the book, and the tale told is in that same slow contemplative productive vein. It was beautiful.

Cute:

Fandom: Howl’s Moving Castle Series, Diana Wynne Jones
Five Domestic Moments - Cute.  I always felt that Sophie and Howl were such an improbable couple.  They remain improbable in this.

Cave Canem - Lovely.  The last line makes it.  The vision of the adult Charmaine is so much like me, and it's important not to be bullied by people who don't understand books.

Fandom: Imagine Me & You
Dandelion – I started this and was like, “oh! Good, someone else has written the pair to my Red Poppies, which I never got around to.” But it was better. The author has gotten Rachel, and her slightly apologetic selfishness, perfectly right. The end of the movie was shmoopy and romantic, but there was a tangled web of pain and misery that still needed to be dealt with. This one makes it cute.

All canon ships!  How odd!  If you can really call them ships, since the only one that's really romantic is Dandelion, and that's rather the least of the bunch.

I feel like drowning in a bit of Dodie Smith or Rumer Godden for a while.  *sighs*

Hellfire

Smut Fics
Winner: The Bicker One

 Interesting Theoretical Exercise:

When i say "James Bond" and my friend XJ says "James Bond" we mean different things.  This strangeness is possibly explainable by the causal theory of reference.
