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.

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?

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:)

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.

A couple of years ago I started writing episode related shorts for the episodes (yeah, that 14 episode 70s show no one much remembers, but that I love - and what else is new;). I stopped writing them, but I guess all the talk about the new Planet of the Apes movie (which I haven't yet seen, so please don't spoil me?), I became interested again. Plus my old POTA site is really showing its age and I started working on updating it just a little. Anyway I wrote a new ep related story and posted it at a03, but its short enough to cut and paste it here.
Here's the first two:
Galen's Truth
Alan's Hope
and here's the third -

Burke's Plan

I had to think a bit about this final day - something I'm really proud of? I am proud of some of my work when I do it, but later on I pick it to death, or doubt if it's good, you know? So for me I'd say it's hard to maintain that sort of positivity over the long haul. There's a couple of stories that I like quite a bit, a couple of vids I'm fond of, but out and out proud? I just don't know. But then I remembered my second (and last) zine! A massive Starsky and Hutch anthology entitled Blood and Destiny.

I stayed up way too late for months in a row, learning layout and how to do bleeds for print, and editing (I WISH I hadn't been quite so anti-comma at the time, but oh, well) - the point is, I ended up with a 550 page (293,000 word count) Starsky & Hutch anthology: a perfect bound, paperback book.

I learned a lot, worked with a lot of talented people, including Sonja T, my lovely friend who does most of the artwork for my original fiction nowadays. She put in an incredible number of art pieces into the zine, over twenty (and she did almost as many for the first zine I did). I had some brilliant writers participate in the anthology with seventeen new stories, trivia and reprints. It was truly a learning experience, and I'm proud of the book and of the work and skill of the participants involved.

I have been into some weird little shows, many rather obscure. SPN might be the only truly large fandom I've participated in - a different experience altogether, and with so many talented writers at first I found it intimidating to post stories. Pretty much from the start, I've seen Sam and Dean as my OTP.

Something for a large fandom/pairing/character, then, is this SPN story, Sam/Dean:


Diamond Dogs is a short, kind of stylized piece, hopefully with some strongly evoked visuals. Prompt was "werewolfism - one turns and takes the other down."

Something I made for someone else -

I participated in Yuletide 2010, and saw this prompt from lady_match, who requested an AU of Lonesome Dove (the tv movie/miniseries) - Gus and Call battling zombies! I don't care if the zombies in question are cows just something dealing with zombies. I'd love to hear their banter back and forth as they slay the undead.

I LOVE Robert Duvall, first off, and Gus, too (the character he played). I thought he and Tommy Lee Jones were extraordinary. It's an old western story, so yeah. Zombie cows. The poor, poor beasts.

Wild, Wild Zombieland

If you're not into Lonesome Dove, maybe a poem instead? These were posted over at [livejournal.com profile] blood_and_pie for Valentine's Day, SPN fandom. I wrote a few, this one for [livejournal.com profile] becc_j, who asked for a Valentine from Sam (a phone call). I had that awful season 4 phone message, supposedly from Dean (but not really) to Sam, in mind.
Remember poor Sam's face while listening to it?
I'm not very good at poetry, but I gave it a shot:)

for you there are
no phone calls or messages
written in air, cutting with blood,
pronouncing time of death
to a heart
-my heart-
already stilled.

to you I make
a phone call - a message
spoken in daylight, splashed with gold,
wishing lollipops and candy canes
for a heart
-your heart-
still beating strong.

Happy Valentine's Day,

Sam

Something new -
A story based on From Dusk Till Dawn: the TV Series. It's got that brotherly vibe going on, plus one of them is apparently insane, and both of them criminals. They snark and snap at each other, and they hug. Richie is scared, Seth is scared for him. Seth lies to him, tells him they'll be okay.

Richie's the ominous one, crazy genius, and Seth is the talkative, bossy one. Always a sucker for mental health issues and unhealthy relationships that ring genuine, that's me.

I literally opened up a post on A03 and wrote the story right there on the page, which was amazing for me, to be able to just get it down and post so easily.

Have some words from it, called Breathe or Die:

kassidy62: (HYENA)



Her voice worms inside his mind, writhes and shreds until his skull is soft; swollen fruit just this side of rotten.

He thinks, sometimes, about pressing a finger into it, seeing if it will explode. He bets it will. Still, he never asks her for silence, even when the pain takes him so far inside he can only see in shades of red.

He likes it. He wants to see where she's taking him. Because she imparts knowledge of things he'd have otherwise never known.

I sent these recs to [livejournal.com profile] tipitiwitchet earlier, and figured I'd list them at my journal as well. They're well written and with an authentic feel for the characters and/or source material.
At this point, the authors are all listed as anon.

fandom: Near Dark
title: Family 
How Diamondback picked Jesse up by the side of the road.

fandom: Vikings
title: The Garden 
Athelstan/Lagertha/Ragnar Lothbrok
Athelstan's heathen garden.

fandom: The Eagle
title: Wherever You Go
Esca/Marcus
“We might be meat for hounds tomorrow,” Esca rasps, feeling the words scrape his throat raw and watching for understanding in Marcus’ eyes. They have no time to waste now. None at all.

It's that time of year again, and I almost wish it'd happen more than once a year so I'd get more gift stories (is greedy). This year my lovely [livejournal.com profile] tipitiwitchet wrote me a story based on the Salem's Lot miniseries from 1979, with David Soul, James Mason, Lance Kerwin and Bonnie Bedelia. God, I loved that miniseries (and David Soul, always, naturally).

The story is called "Taking the Yoke," and is as bleak as I have come to expect from my dark-hearted C:) I really loved it - it retains this whole stripped, lonely view of the characters from the end of the movie, and even the cadence of the one person they speak to, on the side of the vampires, sounds right - a bit old-world, like Straker himself.

The prompt I gave her (a bit of a run-on, yo): Salem's Lot the movie - after it's over, and Ben's killed Susan the vampire, and Ben and Mark are running - what might happen, how will Ben deal with/save Mark when vampires grab Mark and use him for bait to get Ben to come to them?

This also gives me the opportunity to post a couple of caps from the movie I'd made years ago - (oh, DAVID):

Mark and Ben from Salem's Lot... )

I wrote a story for C, also based on a 1970s miniseries (who knew - we think alike), The Dark Secret of Harvest Home, which is based on Harvest Home by Thomas Tryon. It's called "If Mine Eyes Offend Thee."

Happy Holidays!
kassidy62: (were3)
I didn't sign up for Yuletide, but I decided very late in the game to write a treat for my pal, [livejournal.com profile] gryphon2k. I wasn't sure I could do treats without being signed up, so I checked, and yes. It was a fast whirlwind of work and fun for me. I had a story in mind a long time ago to write about the fugitives coming upon a disgraced Wanda, exiled from Central City, so I went with that.

**************

It's a little over a year since Alan and Pete's spaceship crashed. Galen's still with them. They're still running, still fugitives, and Urko's pursuit of them still tireless. When they find a tiny village on the outskirts of ape civilization and Urko passes it by while searching for them, the fugitives begin to hope they've escaped.

But there are others besides Urko who'd like to see them dead.

Summary
Based on Frankenstein: The True Story, with Leonard Whiting, Michael Sarrazin, David McCallum, Jane Seymour and James Mason. It came about because of a holiday exchange with my best friend, who gave me this prompt: "anything goes, but I wouldn't mind having some sort of explanation of why the creature never got a name. And it would be nice if Prima were in there somewhere."

I don't know that I explained the naming issue, exactly, but hopefully I gave some insight on it, at least within the context of my story:)

Notes:
The story incorporates/twists canon, beginning after Victor Frankenstein flees with his creation from a boarding home to the place where he brought the creature to life. They've fled because the landlord, old Mrs. Blair, collapsed and died after seeing the monster's deterioration.

I gave the creature the ability to speak a bit more fluently than he did in the movie. Otherwise, it sounded ridiculous in my head when I read it.

Read it here or on A03

This was written a few years ago - it was intended for a zine, but it didn't happen. I converted the story to an original fiction, but thought I'd post it here in case some of my S&H friends want to read it. It's set during MOONSHINE, right after Hutch and Mr. Drunk As Hell Starsky leave the bar:)

Most definitely slash.
