bookish_dragon: (Writing)
The best cure for a block on one story is just to write a completely different one? Ok, I can live with that.

People quite seem to like it, and do seem eager for me to finish it. Even if I will have to repost the prompt, since the first prompts-post it appeared in has maxed out on its comments.

It's still not going very fast, either of them, but meh. It's the work that counts.
bookish_dragon: Swashbuckling Sulu is hot. (Naked Sulu)
Normally, you get into a show, then into fanfic. Which would be how I normally do it.

Not, as in this case, watch a bit of the show, go 'Yeah, let's not.' Really, I wasn't that interested. And then you read slashfanfic, which makes you go, 'Yeah, maybe I should watch this show'.

To finally get distracted by cheekbones. Seriously. There's Spike, and Sherlock, and now Merlin. Where did I get this obsession with cheekbones from?
bookish_dragon: Sherlock and Watson (Sherlock and John)
Title: Quiet night in
Fandom: BBC-Sherlock
Pairing/characters: John Watson/Sherlock Holmes, DI Lestrade, Sally Donovan.
Rating: PG.
Disclaimer: Sherlock Holmes is owned by Arthur Conan Doyle, various movie-companies, and in this incarnation, by Moffat and Gatiss and the BBC.
Notes: For this prompt at sherlockbbc_fic: Lestrade and Anderson and Donovan barge into 221B, accidentally walking in on Sherlock and John, who are... cuddling. On the couch. Either asleep or watching telly.
Because, honestly? Cuddly!Sherlock would probably be a hell of a lot stranger to witness than havingsex!Sherlock.
Cue amusing reactions from Lestrade and Co.

But it didn't really go there.
Summary: There's no such thing as peace for Sherlock and John.

bookish_dragon: Sherlock and Watson (Sherlock and John)
In a fit of Holmes-obsession, I've reread the book-canon over the past week. Also, I rererereread Study in Emerald, Gaiman's fanfic/crossover. It's worth a read, I highly recommend it.

And then I realised: Might be spoilery if you've never read the latter )

But really, I do recommend Gaiman's take for Holmes-fans.

Going back to my PWP now. This fandom is really kicking my writing into overdrive. *loves it.*

bookish_dragon: Sherlock and Watson (Sherlock and John)
Title: Love is stepping up when need be
Fandom: BBC-Sherlock.
Pairing/characters: John/Sherlock, Lestrade, Donovan.
Rating: PG.
Disclaimer: Sherlock Holmes is owned by Arthur Conan Doyle, various movie-companies, and in this incarnation, by Moffat and Gatiss and the BBC.
Notes: For this prompt at sherlockbbc-fic:

At a crime scene, for whatever reason, John grabs Sherlock and gives him a hard, hot, dominate, possessive kiss that turns Sherlock into a whimpering, weak, stupidly-smiling, gooey blob of aw shucks right in front of Lestrade & Friends.

Then Sherlock composes himself and tells the police why they are all idiots. Because Sherlock may be John Watson's bitch, but he's still smarter than you.
Summary: John always likes to see Sherlock work.

Writing a Garraty/McVries slashfic. They're from King-writing-as-Bachman's book The Long Walk.

Does this book even have a fandom?

Yay, I found one of the first posts on HMS STFU I'd ever read.

Lady Ramkin's Lover. Yes, it's about Discworld-fanfic.

Huh?

I think I got my first fan on FF.net. (There's always Mel, but he's not registered there. :P)

It's just, while I obviously think that what I have posted there isn't too bad or otherwise I would not have put it up there, I never thought that it would be this good.

Wow.

I got a fan. *fans self*

Edit: Ok, I got put on 'Author Alert', which is almost as good as being faved, right?

Do not read any Heroes-fanfic, however good it may be, until you have at least seen more than just the pilot.

In order to preserve the fledgling interest I have in the show after having seen the pilot last night.

*squee*

Hiro's too cute.

Blargh. My head is rather empty, unless you want to count Poirot wandering around in there, muttering in French about the mess. Which is ok, because my French isn't too hot so I can't understand him anyway. ;) Been reading Christie the past couple of days.

In of the latest sporkings on [livejournal.com profile] deleterius, we have a defendant of the fanfic-writer pop up. I think s/he missed the notice that we don't care. It's there for our fun, not theirs. But maybe that is just me.

Part One

Story Or Series Title:
A Bride for the Dark Lord
Fandom: Still no Harry, only an Heir to the throne of Whining.
Culprit Author's Name: CorruptedBeauty666. Repeat offender.

Full Name (plus titles if any): ---. I shit you not. She is given no name. I’ll just call her the Bride.
Full Species(es): Mirror-Sue. She looks how you want her to look.
Hair Color (include adjectives): None given. So it’s blonde.
Eye Color (include adjectives): None given. So they’re blue.
Unusual Markings/Colorations: None given. A plate in her head. A bunch of annoying OC-friends.
Special Possessions (if any): None given. She can’t have that sword.

Annoying Origin: Two Death Eater parents, named ---.
Annoying Connections To Canon Characters: BFF with Draco. Has the Dark Lord propose to her.
Annoying Special Abilities: Lord V can’t get into her mind, and that has him puzzled. Potty-mouth.
Other Annoying Traits: Part of a pranking-ring at Slytherin. Snape does not approve. Pansy-bashing. Maintaining that she is not special, which usually means they are.

Please include a small sample of the worst of this story: This is the show that never ends, my friends )

There's telling someone their fic is bad, and then there's this. Mind-boggling commences in three...two...one. What are you on, reviewer?

Me, while I will admit to generously mocking badifc in various communities, I will try to confine it to the fics themselves, and not play it too much to the writers. Even if I do think their fic isn't worth lining the birdcage with since that'd get the RSPCA on my arse faster than you can say 'Polly wants a cracker?', I would not wish death on the writer. I might slip and wish that their keyboards were taking away while they were forcefed the canon and Elements of Style, but death? Overreaction much? Since when is badfic something you have to kill yourself over? Get a life, plzthnxbai.
