I wrote fic! I signed up for 1_million_words's February Bingo, and I actually managed to complete my card.



To make things even harder for myself, I aimed to write for 9 different fandoms - and I did!

Just saying hi - Talking to a stranger (Red Band Society)
Karaoke bar - May 5 (Finding Carter)
Watching a meteor shower - Make a wish (The Fosters)
College dorm - Aim for the knees (Buffy)
Image (top floor of a mall) - Meeting Castle (Castle)
Anonymous hookup - Connection (Firefly)
Fair warning: There is no actual hooking up in this story
Post office queue - A long wait (Nashville)
At a friend's place - New York Night (Don't trust the B)
Catching a dropped ball - Friendly competition (Switched at Birth)

I would like to thank [personal profile] mesmerising for making this possible by giving me ideas for pairings to write, and for helping me figure out how to get Giles and Buffy to meet in a college dorm.

Dear shipswap Author,

Thank you so much for participating in this fic exchange and celebrating the pairs that don't get enough love! I’m pretty easy to write for; I read a lot of fanfic in a lot of different genres, and am up for almost anything. I love dark, deep fics (I’m okay with character death as well) the most, but I can also really enjoy a happy fluffy one. The ideas below are just a couple of things that I like about the fandoms; feel free to write something completely different than what I’m asking for!

I do have just a couple of do not wants: graphic self-harm, zombies, genderswaps, cunnilungus and mpreg.

Switched at Birth

Bay/Daphne: I love the relationship between Bay and Daphne; I always hate it when they’re at odds, because they’re just so good together. I would love a story in which they become something more and someone of their family catches them making out. I love the show's AU episodes, and would love an AU setting in which they meet in another way (maybe Bay's school is doing some kind of 'mingling with the deaf' program, or Daphne got some kind of scholarship to follow cooking lessons at Bay's school). Bonus points if find out about the switch after they've started dating!

Bay/Emmett: I loved this ship especially at the beginning, when they were still young and very much in love and all the jealousy and resentment between hem hadn't popped up yet. A ficlet set during that time would be great. Or, just like with Bay/Daphne, I'd love an AU setting in which they meet in another way.

Brooklyn Nine/Nine

Rosa/Amy: Every once in a while I come across a ship that I started shipping because of fanfic: this is one of them. They don't get too much screen time together, which is too bad, becuase I think they could draw each other out of their respective shells a bit (Amy's hull of ambition and insecurity, Rosa's huge walls around her personal life). I would love to see them out of the precinct, maybe accidentally meeting each other in a place they hadn't expected the other to be, like at paintball, or in a country café, or at a convention.

Gilmore Girls

Rory/Logan: I never much cared about Rory's relationships. And then came along Logan. His story was different, not as steeped in jealousy as the other two boys' (though still too much jealousy for my taste), and instead of dragging Rory down he challenged her to do new things, to expand her horizons. I would love a story set in the early days, when they weren't yet dating but so much energy was sizzling between them you could see it was going to happen. Or a story set at the Life and Death Brigade (their umbrella jumping was one of my favourite scenes in the entire series).

Rory/Paris: I find Paris fascinating. So driven, so ambitious, that at first she's unable to see Rory for who she is because all she sees is the enemy. But they are so good together, and I think as partners they could rule the world. I peg Paris as an activist, trying to get LGBTQ's the same rights as everyone else, so maybe a story about that. But I also peg Paris as someone who thinks that, if she's a lesbian, all the boxes should be checked off to be a 'proper lesbian', including inane clichéd things like thinking she should cut her hair, or joining a LGBT group at Harvard, or marathonning The L Word.

Nashville

Juliette/Avery: I love everything about this couple. I love how they're both trying to be better for the other person. I love how they can't resist each other even when they know you should. I'm afraid they'll gloss over any issues now they've gotten married, so I'd love for fic in which they actually talk about their feelings, or even some marriage counselling. I'd also love a look into (one of) their minds after Avery found out about Jeff, the hurt and pain they were both feeling. Or maybe an AU in which Juliette actually comes clean after sleeping with Jeff, instead of letting it fester and giving Avery time to find out another way.

Juliette/Rayna: Juliette and Rayna are fascinating together. I love every scene that has the two of them in it, from the catfighting at the beginning of the series, to the quiet trust that has built between them now - loved the scene in which Juliette comes to Rayna about her songs and she sees the journalist watching and this exchange happens:
Juliette: You think he's gonna write me as a hormonal head-case?
Rayna: Probably.
Juliette: Great.
Rayna's answer isn't mean or cruel, she actually sounds very compassionate. I would love a story about both of them on the road, or about them writing a song together.

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your wish-list if you feel comfortable doing so. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Check out other people's posts. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.

1) Recs for any fanfic exchanges, prompt communities, fic challenges...
Anything that might get my muse excited. I love writing, but coming up with ideas has always been hard for me, so I love writing for these kinds of things. Also, the deadline usually helps me with actually starting to write, though some deadline-less things are also good to keep my stress level down. I participated in Yuletide, Trickortreat and whichwillow this year, and I really, really enjoyed that.
No big bangs, though, because I don't think I can actually finish a story with that many words (my current longest story is about 7,000 words).

2) Anything Dance Academy related
I love this show to pieces. My favourite character is Abigail, and my main ships are Abigail/Tara and Zack/Christian, but I love the show so much that I would love anything. Recs for fics or art, or even a new fic(let), would make me really happy!

3) Meta
As it says in on my profile: The only thing I love more than watching TV series is talking about them. My profile has a list of my most active fandoms, but if you've got meta in something else, chances are I'd like reading that as well.

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator.

I'm actually really proud of myself this year. I wrote way more than other years (I can't access my file at the moment, unfortunately, but I'm really proud of all the words I managed to get out), and I challenged myself in different ways.

1) Castle, Castle/Beckett, Through the Storm
I've always been least comfortable with writing dialogue, and then this idea came around one night. Instead of going with what I knew I could write, I set about writing a story developing a relationship through phone calls only. This turned into my longest finished fic ever (7,000 words!), and I'm really proud of it. I can't say it's been overlooked (apparently it's even been recommended on Twitter), but it is my favourite thing to have written this year.

2. Nashville, Juliette/Avery, This is the future
I usually only write for fandoms I know really well and I've read lots of fanfic for (Buffy, Castle...), giving me a good grasp on who the characters are and how they should be written. For Yuletide I decided to challenge myself and offer a fandom that doesn't fit either of these criteria (I've seen every episode, but only once). It took me a while to find my voice, and I posted it on the day of the deadline, but it turned out really well.

3. Buffy, Willow & Giles, Whisper
I haven't really written any rec-worthy Buffy fanfic this year, so for my third rec I'm reaching a little further back. It's written over 4 years ago, but I am still very, very proud of this one.

Dear Author,

Thank you for signing up for this lovely fest and celebrating fandom’s greatest female characters! I’m pretty easy to write for; I read a lot of fanfic in a lot of different genres, and am up for almost anything. I love dark, deep fics (I’m okay with character death as well) the most, but I can also really enjoy a happy fluffy one. The ideas below are just a couple of things that I like about the fandoms; feel free to write something completely different than what I’m asking for!

I do have a couple of do not wants: graphic self-harm, zombies, and genderswaps.

Harry Potter
Hermione, Ginny, Luna
Rowling has given us some great female characters, but has unfortunately neglected to give us any insight into the friendships between these characters. I would love to know how Ginny and Luna became friends, or how Hermione and Ginny handled themselves during summer in the Burrow. I’m also fascinated by the combination of Hermione and Luna; Luna’s a Ravenclaw, so she must be smart, but in such a different way than Hermione. Do they ever have long academic discussions about a book they both read?

Agents of SHIELD
Skye, May, Raina
Skye is my baby, my absolute favourite character of the 2013-2014 season. May is intriguing in her own way, and I love the unlikely friendship they seem to have developed since May became her SO. I’d love to have a look into one of their training sessions.
Raina absolutely fascinates me. I really do believe that she came to Skye with all the right intentions, and I would love a conversation between these two in which they form some sort of connection. Raina could tell Skye so much, and Skye puts up defenses and shields, but I think they could form a bond if she just let it happen.

Switched at Birth
Bay, Daphne
I love the relationship between these two; I always hate it when they’re at odds, because they’re just so good together. I kinda ship them, and would love a story in which someone of their family catches them making out. But them just being friends and sisters and having each other’s backs is awesome as well, like conspiring to set Toby up with a new girl or using sign language to get away with unruly behaviour. I also always like AU settings in which they meet in another way; would they have talked to each other, would they have become friends without these circumstances?
