Fandom Meme: Day 2

Finals hit me damn hard, followed by an 8 day migraine. BUT here is Day 2 of the meme, with a new question.  

2.If you, AS YOURSELF, were to be written in as a character how would you be integrated into the storyline?

I’m not gonna touch this one. (The answer for SPN, of course, is that I would be dead.)


So, new question: Who is your main muse character, and what sparks the creativity?

30 Day Fandom Meta Meme

The 30 Day Fandom Meta Meme has been going around, and I thought I might hop on. I'm terrible at these 30 day things, but maybe I can get it to work. :) I decided to go with SPN (my current fandom) and FFXIII (because it's been my most prolific fandom). Here we are:

1. How did you get into this fandom?

SPN Ranking Meme

 I think a lot of people have done this at this point, but here's that character ranking meme that's going around. Overall, I'd say this is pretty accurate, though I feel like Henriksen, Amelia Richardson, Rufus, and Naomi should all be a little higher on the list than they are. Other than that, though, this is pretty much on par.

Aug. 31st, 2015

 School is all-consuming already. I don't even know how I'm going to manage, haha. BUT MY CLASSES ARE ALL PRETTY AWESOME. (Even my Shakespeare class has a good teacher, so I may survive.)

Still working on my Kevin Big Bang fic (and thinking I may even make the deadline), I'm suddenly looking at the reality of ~20k worth of words of abo character study, specifically about mother/son relationships with a kind-of romantic thing on the side. IDEK what this fic is supposed to be at this point, but writing it always fills me with glee and leaves me cackling into the distance. So whatever anyone else thinks, I'm pumped.

Writing Meme

Stolen from so many people:

I currently have 125 works archived at AO3. Pick a number from 1 (the most recent) to 125 (the first thing I posted there), and I'll tell you three things I currently like or three random tidbits about it.

If you're looking for SPN, numbers lower than 30 should work. If you're looking for FF, number higher than 30 should work. :) This entry was originally posted at http://mako-lies.dreamwidth.org/146773.html.

That Trope Meme

Now that I've moved and am relatively settled in, here's my version of that meme that was going around. My results were pretty much what I expected, and probably unsurprising, given what I tend to write. Here we are:

  1. Found Families

  2. Hurt/Comfort

  3. Actually Unrequited Pining

  4. Loyalty Kink

  5. Friends to Lovers

  6. Role Reversal AU

  7. Magical Connection (telepathy, etc)

  8. Age Difference (possibly due to time travel)

  9. Amnesia

  10. Sex Pollen

  11. Selfcest (possibly due to time travel)

  12. Adopting/Raising a Baby

  13. Incest

  14. Enemies to Friends to Lovers

  15. Rivalmancy

  16. 'Groundhog Day'/Karmic Time Warp

  17. Seemingly Unrequited Pining

  18. Trapped in an Elevator/Snowed-In Cabin/etc

  19. A/B/O

  20. Soulmate Identifying Marks: Tattoo, Red Thread of Fate, etc

  21. Reincarnation/'25 Lives' AU

  22. Fake Out Make Out

  23. Espionage AU

  24. Coffee House AU/Food Service AU

  25. Royalty/Arranged Marriage

  26. Fake Dating/Fake Marriage Accidentally Turns Into Feelings

  27. High School/Uni AU

  28. Vampires/Werewolves AU

story time: spn edition

Okay, so I don’t think I’ve ever told the story about how I got into Supernatural (aka that show I can’t quit). It’s been about two years. The summer of 2013, I spent fourth of July with my mom’s family, which meant getting to see my little sister, Bird. At the time, she was fourteen.

Upon walking into the apartment, my sister flings herself at me. After the hugging, OMG YOU’RE ALMOST TALLER THAN ME BIRD WTF, and etc. she hands me a cheap ring that is silver colored. It’s heavy-set, and gleaming. I see one just like it on her pinkie. “Does this fit you?” she asks me.

Fic Roundup and Rec

 For Remix Redux StripySock wrote a lovely remix of Blankets. They do a lovely job of capturing the tension between Cas and Sam at the start of s10. Go read it! :D

The fic I wrote was:

Title: From Where We Stand in History
Fandom: Supernatural
Characters: Castiel, Anna
Rating: G
Word Count: 1036
Notes: This is a remix of emmademarais 's story History and Words Left Unspoken.
Summary: There is history between Castiel and Anna, but it can change nothing.

AO3 | DW | LJ

This week, I also finished:

Title: don't you want to share the guilt?
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing: Dean/Kevin
Rating: E
Word Count: 4,289
Notes: Contains major character death, dubious consent, rough sex, and non explicit references to depression. Title lifted from Kate Nash's "Don't You Want to Share the Guilt?" This is set after what's yours is mine.
Summary: Kevin never considered that living with yourself after surviving might be worse than trying to survive. Especially when you're the one that sent Sam Winchester to his death.

Meme and Writing Productivity

First, been playing around with this writing pacemaker all morning as I try to be more productive over the summer. If you're someone like me that likes having fluctuating, but real goals, there are a lot of nifty features here. 

Second, stole a meme from frozen_delight about writing. Ask me a number, and I'll answer. And I'd love to ask you, if you want to play, too :D

 1. Describe yourself how you would describe a character you’re introducing.
2. Is there any specific ritual you go through while/before/after your writing?
3. What is your absolute favorite kind of fic to write?
4. Are there any other fic writers you admire? If so, who and why?
5. How many words can you write if you sit down and concentrate intensely for an hour?
6. First fic/pairing you wrote for? (If no pairing, describe the plot)
7. Inspiration, time, or motivation. Choose two.
8. Why do you choose to write?
9. Do you ever have plans to write anything other than fic?
10. What inspires you the most?
11. Weirdest thing you’ve ever written/thought about writing/etc.?
12. A fic you wish you had written better, and why?
13. Favorite fic from another author?
14. Your favorite side pairings to put in?
15. Your guilty writing pleasure?
16. Do you have structured ideas of how your story is supposed to go, or make it up as you write?
17. Would yo describe yourself as a fast writer?
18. How old were you when you started writing?
19. Why did you start writing?

Dear Rarepair Writer

Dear Writer,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write me a fic. I’m super pumped to see what you come up with!

I am really easy to please. I like everything from fluff to angst, to hurt/comfort, and basically anything else you can think of. I'm a big fan of exploring power imbalances in ships, so if you want to take that route, I'd be thrilled.

Pretty much whatever you would like to write would make me happy. I do prefer fics to be at least semi-related to canon: if you'd like to write an AU, I prefer ones that are canon-related. I also prefer to avoid rape/noncon. I’ll try and give you some direction by fandom, but really, I’d be happy with nearly anything.

MCUCollapse )

SPNCollapse )

Like I said, I’m really really easy to please. I like a wide variety of things, and the ideas I’ve put here are just something to get you started thinking if you’re having trouble.




I have a lot of projects I'm working on right now, and some more yet to come.


don't you want to share the guilt? (breaky s9!AU where Sam dies, Kevin is left to survive, and Dean/Kevin happens)
Secret Remix fic


Secret Summergen fic
ABO s10 Sevin fic (with alpha!Kevin/alpha!Sam, not a fix it)

To Come:

Rarepairfest fic
Linda/Jody breaky fic set after "this banging with fire"
My two claims from areyougame:
Final Fantasy VIII, Selphie: The End - no one should have so much power
Final Fantasy VII, Barret/Tifa: Hurt/Comfort - he's not the best medic but he does his best

I've also shifted a lot of my fic over to archive on LJ and DW, to see if I like the format better. Experimenting to see what works and doesn't work in terms of archiving my fic. [community profile] cityofladies on dreamwidth and lacitedesdames on livejournal. We'll see if it sticks. (I'll still be posting to AO3, and I'll provide links to new fics here.)

Dear Summergen Writer

Dear Writer,

First, thank you for taking time to write a fic for me! I’m really excited to see what you come up with.

Chronic Migraine, Kevin Tran, and me

One of the many, many reasons I think I respond to/identify with Kevin is because I read him as having chronic migraines, like I do. I wouldn’t say I consider Kevin as representative of folks with migraines, rather I think it’s one way his character can be read. 

rambling self-indulgent post is self-indulgentCollapse )

tl;dr: My disability affects how I read and write Kevin Tran, and I’m mostly okay with that.

(Does anybody know any good media with people who have migraines/chronic pain and/or disabilities? Also, to reiterate, I’m not claiming that Kevin represent chronic migraine or chronic pain of any type—this is just how I, personally, read Kevin. It’s not a suggestion for how others should read Kevin.)

Two Things

 The portrayal of the asari make me deeply uncomfortable, especially when coupled with the fact you can romance literally every asari squad member.

In happier news, rarepairfest is now open for nominations! This is a fun fest for small and large fandoms. It's also one of the most fun challenges I've participated in in general. This entry was originally posted at http://mako-lies.dreamwidth.org/143621.html.

Re-playing FFXII

Wow, I missed a lot of things when I played FFXII when I was 16.

The entire conversation between Larsa and Penelo about Vayne, and Archadia's role in Dalmasca, and the realities of the war for Penelo vs. Larsa's conceptions of the war completely went over my head.

Basch is also making more sense to me as a character this go-round. I did not get him at all when I originally played the game, even though I really liked him.
