[livejournal.com profile] tipitiwitchet and I are going on a spooky movie jag this month. This is what is in the running (and the strikeouts are what we've actually managed to watch):

For mine and C's fiction exchange, I missed the Monday due date (National Cream-Filled Donut Day, ladies and gents). Butn I expect to finish the story today or tomorrow, knock on wood and the creeks don't rise, etc etc Now complete!

Warnings for torture and affectionate banter. That sounds weird, I know. One of the bad guys is very twisted and the other of the plain old small evil variety - makes for hard times for Heyes and Curry. At any rate, you can read the tags for warnings.

Alias Jones and Smith

Love to [livejournal.com profile] tipitiwitchet, who is beyond amazing.

It's dark and dirty as we ever get, be warned. But delicious! And in your face! Unapologetic! 4,858 words. Non-con. Dick Grayson/Jason Todd. Also appearing: Batman, Joker, Alfred

Revision

Notes:


  • For kassidy. Here's the prompt she gave:

Nightwing/Jason Todd willingly, or under someone's nefarious influence;) Dubcon is good. Can also be threeway with Batman or Tim Drake.

It's still up here for anyone who missed it.

I posted about what I'd written for mine and C's prompt exchanges, and I wanted to mention that I got a really good story from [livejournal.com profile] tipitiwitchet for the exchange. She worked really hard on my story though the juices weren't flowing. She finished it (I think soley to make me happy, which <3), but she LOATHES it.
I love it. Love it, love it. Love her, too. But she already knows that:)

Speaking of ASJ, I read verlaine's ASJ story she had posted at [livejournal.com profile] aliassmithjones - typical for Verlaine, it's hard-hitting and poignant - an outsider POV story about how Heyes and Curry ended up.

God, I have NO IDEA what to write for ASJ. But I'll figure out something by the time September rolls around:)

Health update: I'm on four shots a week, the rebif I talked about before and another one of methotrexate. Currently doing better than I have in over a year. Not saying I feel good most of the time (I wish!), but I have accomplished things, which makes me feel better about myself. And today I felt pretty damn good. Hope I have more days like it.

Hellooo, tagged by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] laughablelament, a new friend: seven lines from the seventh page of my longest WIP. I'm going with Book II of Rising Wolf (sequel to Beneath the Neon Moon) because Book I was done some months ago--

Kane moved in close, wiry, smaller than Zach, eager grin on his face. He ducked his head into the curve between Zach's shoulder and neck and breathed in. "Ah, that's nice. I missed your scent, Zach. Well, not that I ever thought I'd get to smell it again, or see you, since, well, you should be dead."


"I really hope you're amusing yourself," Zach husked, letting a tremor come through his voice. He eased his hands from behind his back.

No pressure, my wonderful flisters, but I'd love to see what [livejournal.com profile] tipitiwitchet (I know I can't see my gift fic, of course, but something else?), [livejournal.com profile] hardboiledbaby (and oh my GOD, I just realized I didn't wish you a happy birthday! Hope it was as incredible as you are!) [livejournal.com profile] loyseofverlaine, [livejournal.com profile] duluthgirl, [livejournal.com profile] gryphon2k (I saw you POSTED on your story!! Let me see more;), [livejournal.com profile] blackrabbit42, and [livejournal.com profile] marianrose are up to:)

So much for embracing nature, even from my wide, breezy porch. I sit down to write and a spider crawls up my side. DO NOT WANT.

Try again. Sit on the porch itself, turn around and see my cat after a lizard without a tail. Oh, wait, without a tail NOW - there's the tail, wiggling on the porch. I'm guarding the lizard while two dogs and a cat try to get to it.

The dog picks the wriggling tail up in its mouth, takes it off the porch. She's back in less than a minute, and ugh, we know where THAT went. She noses interestedly around me. Cat still trying to get past me. I build a barricade because I cannot bring myself to pick up the tailless lizard (it might, oh, WRIGGLE. Or wiggle, like a tailless thing. Or a severed tail).

Yeah, maybe I'll try this another day.

It's just easier not to post, and people get busy, but I figure since I still check in on the flist daily I should maybe contribute some words as well.

My flist has certainly gotten quieter. I remember when I could not keep up! Primarily that was the SPN fandom - my S&H friends were never that loud on LJ. S&H for me was a yahoo groups thing, though the [livejournal.com profile] starsky_hutch LJ comm helped me migrate here.

I also remember the frustration of trying to download ALL THOSE SPN stories, and clicking what occasionally amounted to a ridiculous number of entries and continued entries to get at a whole verse. Do you know I used to copy/paste stories in MS word and save them as docs? I bet more than a few of us did. I mean, I have tons of stories still on my computer in doc format. So much work! I tried to keep up, which was impossible really.

Before LJ, I was immersed in S&H stories, and by God I PRINTED those out. Still have a bookshelf full of the printouts, and then another shelf of the printed zines (including my own two) in my bedroom.

Unrelated, but: SPN's Jeremy Carver is such a disappointing shower runner for me. I was afraid of him after I couldn't for the life of me keep interest in the last show he ran (Being Human), though I loved the original British version (first three seasons, anyway). Sucks because of gems like SPN Christmas ep and the like. He still can write some killer episodes on occasion (I loved S8 ender ep). So anyway, when I get an episode I really enjoy as opposed to it being merely watchable, it makes me happy. I enjoyed, so much, the Sam POV we got last episodes in "Book of the Damned" and "The Werther Project." I like how Sam and Dean have been really together and in the lovely, unhealthily codependent relationship I know and love.

Oh, story rec: The Outlaw Torn by LaughableLament. Old school first-time with plenty of UST until it's, well, resolved:) Expertly written in my opinion, classic in all the best ways of good Wincest fiction. Killer Dean voice, Sammy the irrestible tease and always, always, the clever, irritating little brother.

Another thing: I looked forward with great anticipation to the premiere of Orphan Black, a thing that was handily trashed when my phobia regarding eyes/eye damage sent me into a panicked fit. Made me pretty sick and upset that day. I try to avoid seeing that stuff, but that shit don't come with warnings.

Whew, plenty of rambling! I guess I posted then, yeah?

I have no idea why I waited so long. I had a basic idea of what was to come in the sequel to Sometimes They Come Back (Batman: Under the Red Hood DCU animated; Jason Todd/Dick Grayson) but brain continued foggy. So I'm sitting with around 800 words on Sunday night, knowing our decided-upon posting date was Monday. So I wrote 3,000 words yesterday:) That's unheard of for me. I am so excited by that. Also tired. But I love that burst of intensity and am glad I was able to post on our agreed date, Panic Day 2015, which turned out to be so very appropriate for me. Though it was close to 9 pm when I managed it.

I know I probably have very few DCU flisters, but here's the link in case: What Hurts More

And my dear Cass! She's written me a sequel to her heartbreaking but wonderful Rendevous in a Bedroll for Alias Smith & Jones. This one is called Snowbound - lots of Heyes/Curry (hot!) loving AND Cass's usual bleakness and poignance. Then I get one more ASJ story from her for our June deadline (June 8, Name Your Poison/Best Friends Day). And in September we switch our fandoms and write another story for each other, so I'll write ASJ. Looking forward to it, and to reading her DCU.

If you do read our stories, while we don't have warnings we do have everything dark listed in our tags.
kassidy62: (from mickeym - snoopy)
I told myself if I finished 1,000 words today I'd post here, just jabber a bit. I actually didn't make 1,000 but I did 845 and am letting myself do it anyway:)

Summary:

Bruce thinks Jason has crossed the line. He has no idea how far Jason will go. (Or: Jason has a backup plan.)

Written for a yuletide exchange between myself and no_one_in_particular. Her prompt for me is: Jason and Dick wanting Bruce's attention. Always.

It's dark stuff. Be wary.

Sometimes They Come Back
 

 

kassidy62: (from mickeym - snoopy)
For our annual yule exchange, C and I have posted our two stories. I filled her Batman: Under the Red Hood prompt and she filled my Alias Smith & Jones. They're both bleak, even for us.

Oh my God, I love those ASJ boys. I have to tell you, I am blown away by her story for me - the characterization is perfect. For both of the guys, while reading I had these utter 'aw' moments - if you know the chemistry between these guys, you'll know what I'm talking about. They were a perfect duo, and weirdly enough even when they were shouting at each other it was humorous, not hostile. The story has perfect characterization, warmth, longing and love tied up neatly within a ball of grief. I teared up, guys, and I just find myself waving my hands around and exclaiming how I love it. It's sad but so moving. Rendezvous in a Bedroll by [livejournal.com profile] tipitiwitchet. (Heyes/Curry)

Mine is called Sometimes they Come Back, and it's all about the animated movie Batman: Under the Red Hood, which C made me watch and which I love (and one of my kids as well - she's watched it with me several times). I do adore it. C is right, it's a fangirl paradise. The story is Dick Grayson/Jason Todd.
Summary:
Bruce thinks Jason has crossed the line. He has no idea how far Jason will go. (Or: Jason has a backup plan.)

Remember what I said, though - we are dark people, and we love angst, and angsty love. Check the tags for each story if you need to know why.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day today:)

Rachel put together her first vid, a year ago or so - she gathered the clips off youtube. She's just turned 17 now, hard to believe, but when she made it she was 15 or 16. I've pretty much let my girls watch what they want for years now, judging them to be fairly thoughtful, critical persons with a clear grasp of reality vs.story-telling, and both of them are Dexter fans.

The vid is divided up into two parts - the first features a happy Dexter with a family life when Rita was still alive. This part of the vid is sweet and slow moving. Then it seques into another song ("Animal I Have Become") and throws in lots of violence. The vid is long and somewhat repetitive, like a lot of first-time efforts (or 2nd, 3rd, etc), but let me tell you this - the end of this vid literally gives me more chills, makes me feel a horrified pity and just moves me more than any other vid I've seen. I think that's amazing, that Rachel was able to accomplish that with a first vid.

The combo she hit on there at the end - young Dexter mixed in with scenes of Dexter as a grown-up - they're difficult scenes, a bit hard to watch and listen to. I need to upload this and show you!

Just keep in mind - there's LOTS of gore in it. Rae's dark, like her Mom;)

I uploaded it to vimeo, it should be ready shortly for those who are interested.

Summary: Written  for the October 2014 [livejournal.com profile] spn_cinema challenge, which mixes Supernatural characters/Supernatural RPF with cinema. This particular challenge offered prompts of movies released in the '80s. I claimed The Hunger, a 1983 vampire film with Catherine Deneuve, Susan Sarandon and David Bowie. Vampires were day walkers long before Twilight came around, nary a vampire fang was shown, and even the word vampire was never mentioned in the film. I couldn't resist trying to write for it, and it's been a while since I have felt that.

kassidy62: (hands by me)
Very pleased to have finished my [livejournal.com profile] spn_cinema story - I saw one of the movies prompted and couldn't resist, which is a thing made of awesomeness, because I can resist a lot lately (not necessarily a good thing - it's primarily because I feel unwell). The Hunger was one of my favorite movies in the 80s and I'm happy someone thought of prompting it.

AND I busted my SPN RPS cherry - I'm never all that interested in writing RPF though I read it. Honestly I only wrote the Js because Sam and Dean Winchester didn't fit in my version of the story, but I'm kind of pleased about it anyway.

I have a bit where Jensen wears a leather harness and I'm a little nervous that I referenced it wrong, or something about how I utilized it in the story is wrong somehow- I'm not really up on leather clothing and bondage and/or S&M gear. As a matter of fact I'm ignorant (as you can probably tell by how I described it!), but it felt right to put it in this scene.

In conclusion: happy I finished it, and looking forward to posting, which begins the last week of October. I finished with plenty of time, go me! (Except it COULD be me procrasting for tiresomely unknown and stubborn reasons with finishing like, 2,000-4,000 words in the final chapter of my first book of my original fiction story, in which case, not so go! me). But whatever.

PS: I have a neurologist that has prescribed in-home injections of Solu-Medrol - anybody have experience with it? A nurse is coming next week. I need something, but this shit makes me a little scared. I mean, it could really help - and I can take prednisone okay. and I have inhalers, so I'm not unfamiliar with stimulants. I guess I'll read whatever they sent me (just got the med delivery today) and see, but still. Anything resembling ephedrine is very very bad for me - makes me flip out, which makes me worry if other stimulants might do the same.

If you like dark and you like well-written, this is for you:) It's short, AU, gen. For all that it's a supernatural situation, the emotions are very human. I  think it's well crafted and was completely caught up in this short story. The end particularly resonated wiith me.

from the author, [livejournal.com profile] duckondebut:

AU after 1.18: Something Wicked. References events that’ve happened s2 through s5.

Summary: Sam and Dean are immortal now. Yeah. It’s that simple, and that complicated.

Warnings: Vague general series spoilers, some swearing. AND GUYS. This is very dark. Torture, violence, references to suicide and suicidal tendencies are contained within.
