I'm serious about not moving. I'm out of surgical suture and this is as good as it gets. )

*dusts the place off* Fic! I remember writing fic!

This is my attempt to get autumn and all those lovely "-ber" months off to a fun start. Plus to maybe, perhaps, actually finish something I start in my fic files. Here goes nothing. *G*

By the time he'd blown the torso off the fifth malodorous, decomposing creature, Jack was ready to go the fuck back to Otis. )

OK, that [livejournal.com profile] skewedbelievers New Year's/January challenge fic that I was ignoring in favor of playing with the previous meme? Has turned into a 3000+ word angst-fest. Because I like my Jack and Sam when they suffer, baby. ;)

So in an effort to avoid it yet again tonight, I present my tally of 2005 Fics and WiPs. I included a couple of the Secret Santa fics I wrote last year as well -- I hadn't posted them until the first week of January anyway, thanks to my computer having a massive meltdown around that time, so I figured they count. ;)

Completed Fics, by Fandom:

Profiler:
Crack-the-Whip (R, John/Frances, Drama/Romance) - 5904 words
Once They Built a Railroad (PG-13, Jack/Samantha, Drama/Angst) - 2143 words

Veronica Mars:
Call it an Adventure (PG-13, Veronica/Logan, Angst/Comfort/Friendship) - 2201 words

Dead Like Me:
Holes (R, George/Rube, Romance/Angst) - 356 words

Star Wars/Return of the Sith:
Keeping Up Appearances (R-ish, Anakin/Palpatine, Parody) - 4787 words
Sex and the Sithy, Part 1: Scenes from the Cafe Galactika (P-13, Cast, Parody) – 2488 words

By my calculations that makes a total of 17879 words - so, not as much as I'd have liked to write, but a respectable amount and a pretty reasonable goal to exceed this year, I think. ;)


WiPs, with snippets:

Untitled - Profiler - Sam/Jack parody )

Seven Days - Profiler - Cast, Sam/Jack )

A Little Like Insane - Profiler - Frances/Jack )

Frannie the Vampire Slayer - Profiler - Cast, Frances/John, Frances/Marcus )

Untitled - Point Pleasant - Christina/Boyd )

I didn't include a couple of WiPs that are more collections of sentences than cohesive stories at the moment; and I didn't include my 2005 Secret Santa fic because that's the one that I'm (hopefully!) going to finish and post this week. So help me out here, people -- should I continue these? And if the answer's yes, will you get out your Big Pointy Sticks and beat on gently encourage me? ;)

In a bizarre accident stemming from a combination of excessive monkey-crack snorting and peer pressure, I seem to have jumped on the [livejournal.com profile] fanfic100 bandwagon.

My subject o'the purported writing is...wait for it...contain your surprise, now...Frances Malone from "Profiler." Yeah, shocking, I know.

Not that this will make me forget the various drabbles and non-Frances-related stuff I owe everyone -- just think of this as more fodder for my big fluffy pile o'procrastination.

For those of you who might be interested (just what is wrong with you weird people?!), I present... the Big Damn Table of Fran-fiction... )

...aaaaaand this would be the second fic my computer chewed into word-salad this week. Written for [livejournal.com profile] solitude_82 for the [livejournal.com profile] profiler_fans Secret Santa exchange.

You know, I may have just 'found a Profiler 'ship that I've bonded with as much as Sam/Jack. I'm actually pretty happy with how this one turned out, right down to the "narrator" voice which isn't something I've tried before -- although I confess to having a "Frosty the Snowman" flashback and picturing Cartoon Me standing on a street-corner in Manhattan telling the tale a la Jimmy Durante. ;)

*****

Crack-the-Whip

Pairing: Frances/John, angst/romance

Rating: R (language, sexual situations)

Spoilers: approximately through mid-season 4



It’s Christmas-time in New York, and all manner of strange and wonderful things can happen... )

This has been kicking around on my hard drive for over a month while I hammered out the plot-line -- maybe all the leading news stories this week about Hurricane Frances were what finally nudged my Muse into gear. *G*

Yes, it's a Buffy/Profiler cross-over. Yes, I'm spending a considerable amount of time and a potential butt-load o'chapters on a cross-over of two defunct shows. What's your point? ;)

The Iconage Stuff: I already posted this in [livejournal.com profile] empty_marrow, but what the hey, this little LJ feels neglected -- thanks to a weekend of basically growing roots in my computer chair, coupled with a 60-day free download of Animation Shop 3, I present to you Profiler-themed icons, to be found on page one and page two. They're very rough and newbie-ish, but hey, want 'em, take 'em.

The Growth-in-Ficcing Thoughts: These came about after I was perusing the old Skewedom site for icon-worthy pics, and I decided to meander off and look at some of my older fics -- always a dangerous idea and often rather cringe-inducing. Profiler was the first fandom I'd ever gotten involved in seriously enough to write fic for, and some of my earliest examples, still up on that site, are pretty damned ewwwwww. (And those are just the ones whose existence doesn't cause me extreme pain -- there are worse ones banished to the dark recesses of the many stuffed-full desk drawers in the office, never to see the light of day again unless I ever get ambitious enough to clean 'em out and use 'em as litter-box liner. *G*)

Looking back now, it's not so much the writing that strikes me as horrible -- I was an adult by the time I got into fic, so even though my "style" was developing, my vocabulary and my ability to put thoughts into words, such as it is/was, was pretty well formed and finalized by then. The thing that makes me shudder today is how I utterly butchered characterization to further the particular plot points I wanted to make, canon be damned.

Heh. If the word "canon" sounds weird coming from the keyboard of a girl who has been known to 'ship Jack/Coop and Jack/Frances, let me 'splain.

Really, I love canon, I do. As I've begun the growing-up process as a fanfic writer, I've come to the conclusion that nothing is as satisfying as starting with your proverbial feet firmly planted right in the canon-patch. Then, if you're me, you take out a weed-whacker and a stick of dynamite and blast that sucker into a completely different-looking space, one that furthers your plot and sends your characters in the direction you want to take them - but it's all the more satisfying that you started with that little canon-patch with the rest of the gardeners. *re-reads* OK, I'm going to stop with the Martha Stewart metaphors now.

One of my biggest personal examples of character-butchering-to-further-plot was ironically enough in the fic that I was most attached to, "Learning Experiences" -- a 200k+ Frances/Jack piece that took place in the AU-est AU that ever AU'ed. How attached was I to this idea? I re-wrote the entire thing over a period of at least two years and planned to make it part one of a three-part series (100k or so of which I also wrote but never posted). Then one day I sort of looked at it from a distance and thought "who the hell are these people?" The voices were off, and in the AU setting that I'd created to make it easier to get the characters together, I'd come pretty damned close to creating a *twitch* Frannie Sue.

Plus, by ignoring some of the big canon points, the act of getting these two together was just...not particularly interesting. In the interim, I'd watched more episodes of the show, paid attention to the voices and mannerisms, and started to write A Little Like Insane. It starts from canon, it gets really dark really fast, and it's been a bitch to push the characters toward any version of a "relationship" because they're both so damaged and resistant to the whole concept. But it's so much more satisfying and fun to write because of that.

So, growth-in-ficcing is the short version of why my AU will be retired. If anyone is still remotely interested, though, feel free to wander over and check out Learning Experiences, if only to look at the awesome cover art that a friend made for me. And despite all my previous fic-bashing, I'm still really happy that I wrote it, if only so I can use it as a yardstick to see how well or how poorly I'm weeding the canon-patch. *G*

...but as I have my suspicions that the very-pretty-but-sadly-ignored VCTF Command Center will go "poof" and just vanish one of these days, I figured I'd transfer my fic-in-progress over to LJ-land. I like this one, for some reason; if the characters are nice enough to actually talk to me a little more (as opposed to their present standard glare-and-mumble), I might even finish it.

A Little Like Insane: Profiler, FrancesFic, R (language, sexual situations)

Part the First )

Part the Second )



*pokes at characters* Talk to me, dammit! I actually have ideas for this one!

...and no, my Harry/Sirius fics never did get beyond the planning stage, but in this new post-OotP world I figure I have more of a chance to actually rev 'em up. Because it's all about the Angst, baby. *G*
