And the lovely [livejournal.com profile] cs_whitewolf wrote a wonderfully evocative Arthur/Eames fic for my art, which is all that I could ever want from a fic.

Part 1 Part 2 AO3

Here's the art I submitted:

The fic has flirting and office supplies and rainy scenes in foreign countries and 14,000 words. I am so drawing a ton more fanart for it! Whee!!!

What le heck. Did I really just notice I had an inbox on AO3? Really? No wonder I've been shit with replying to comments.

In other news, re. SUPER HOT ASIAN CORPORAL, or SHAC, his name is apparently Will Sharpe and he is a British-Japanese actor who was on Casualty, a show I have never seen in my life. He also co-directed and starred in a very weird but charming short film called Gokiburi or 'Cockroach' (no actual sign of the beasties in the film, thank Ghu). You can watch it here.

New York, I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down by [livejournal.com profile] jeannedecarnin. Inception, Arthur/Eames. Lonely Christmas pr0n set in New York.

I really have to do something with all my memories of being lonely in famous cities. Like the time I stormed out of the dorm at 1.30am to march down Bedford Place and Great Russell Street all the way down Oxford Street almost to Marble Arch before I ran out of steam. Or hearing the bells of Venice all ring at midnight. Everyone has moments like this--why can't I turn them into decent fanfic or comics like a normal person?

Catch As Catch Can is finally up on AO3 as I gave up illustrating it. Dedication and consistency, I do not know what these words mean. Sigh.

the tricky bit of making things: all of it )

Woke up at 7, skyped with Mom at 9, now i'm reading things cos I can't get to sleep...

So, a brief moment here to pimp two of my current favourite Sherlock fics!

Two Two One Bravo Baker by abundantlyqueer is a mind-blowingly awesome AU where Sherlock and John meet much earlier, in Afghanistan instead of London. It has scads of action, a cracking mystery, extensively researched details of military life, and more BAMF!John than my little brain can take. Also very graphic slash, so proceed with caution. Not yet complete.

On the gen/het side, The Affair of the Asphyxiated Acafan by AJHall is another great mystery, unusually written from the POV of Sarah, John's is-she-isn't-she girlfriend. It's full of fannish detail and reads like a proper mystery story; I almost feel as if I'm reading a tie-in or watching an episode of the series. Very satisfying and everyone's voices come across just right. Complete!

Also managed to borrow my officemate's copies of Philosopher's Stone and Chamber of Secrets; the proper British versions, too. Very pleased, as they're very hard to get here! Have resolved to re-read the books and watch at least some of the movies again before The Big One opens in July.

Title: Catch as Catch Can
Chapter: 1/7
Summary: Sherlock is bored. John devises a game of hide and seek, with a twist: all the clues are pop culture references, comics and film and TV &c. Sherlock needs to make space on his hard drive in a hurry.
Warnings: slash (John/Sherlock), abuse of italics and parentheses, and a large amount of geekitude.
Rating: R
Notes: Written to fill this prompt on the sherlockbbc kinkmeme. Beta'd by the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] elethe and [livejournal.com profile] polkadotsquared.

This fic comes in two flavours: text-only, and extra spicy, with illustrations, maps by [livejournal.com profile] polkadotsquared (beta, Britpicker and cartographer!), and links at relevant bits. This is the illustrated version; click here for the text-only chapter.

Feel, Sherlock. It won't kill you. )

Where would one go to find a beta if one is a fanficcy unknown? And when is a good time to approach one?

I've been writing a prompt fill over at the [livejournal.com profile] sherlockbbc_fic kinkmeme, and it's gotten longish and I'm about ready to de-anon. Have been posting a haphazardly-edited chaptered version on the dreamwidth journal, but I would really like to polish it up and post it here. Then I want to sign up for archiveofourown, to have a place to put finished fic.

Thing is, should I finish it first and then look for a beta? Or ask some lovely person to work with me chapter by chapter?

Times like these I miss the YSML (is old omg)

Fanficcing flisters, what do you do?

I have been reading a LOT of YA lately, to the point that it's the first section I head for in Fully Booked. This hasn't been the case for 13 years--I got into YA as a genre in itself via lit-major friends (HAI GUYZ) and dropped off a little after we went our separate ways.

But now I'm living in a city with a bookstore that actually believes kids have their own personalities and can think for themselves instead of grabbing the nearest black-red-and-white cover on the Teens' Choice table...

I have these books that I love but didn't realise for years were written by authors who actually wrote more books. E.L. Konigsburg, Jerry Spinelli, Patricia McLachlan and Steve Kluger gave me a genre I had no idea I would love: a world without magic, vampires, fantastic machines or any of my usual favourite tropes, a world in which kids did kid things and realised they weren't enough, a world where kids got older and connected with adults and other kids and...changed, irrevocably, often for the better.

If you have any recs for these authors' books and more authors like them, please let me know.

In the meantime, I re-read The Mysterious Edge of the Heroic World and succumbed to the inevitable: William Wilcox/Amedeo Kaplan slash fanfic. Because really, it was RIGHT THERE, hardly even coded at all. Oh, and a bit of het at the end.

Does anyone have any? Because I just watched the movie again, and after reading the Temeraire novels and Monstrous Regiment, and watching the Star Trek movie, I remembered how desperately I NEEDED Jim-at-Space-Academy fic. Officers train separately from 'common' cadets but classes are brought together during exercises, mess-hall and dormitory hijinks ensue, lifelong friendships are formed &c.

I bravely plunged into the Pit of Voles and was promptly devoured whole by Mary Sues. Not a slashfic in sight, either. It's awful and frustrating. Help, please?
