this journal is now friends only.





Actually, Semi!friends only. Fics, fanmixes and several other 'fandom associated things are left unlocked.

update: Because of new lj policies, I may one day have to lock explicit content, but for now it's here and open. If shit starts going down, I might start flocking any NC-17 fics, but they'll remain open at said Dreamwidth and I'll directly link to the relevant tag. Now back to your regularly scheduled friends only post.

update x 2: I did a friends cut, mostly limited to people who I no longer had anything in common with, or who weren't around anymore. I tried to leave people who lurked for fic on, but if you're not dead, (but just sleeping) and/or want to be put back on, just let me know.

The One Disclaimer to Rule Them All

On the matter of disclaimers:


Unless otherwise stated (i.e. an original work of my own), I claim no ownership to any series or otherwise anything I write fanfiction for.

I am not making any money off of this, it is only used for entertainment purposes, no infringement of copyright is intended.

Anyways, a few nice points:

-I got the last of my Christmas shopping done, more or less. I mean I may still have one or two things from the Steam sale, but that'd just be for online people. I had gotten the majority of it done around February, but I was having a hell of a time getting things for my grandma, dad and mom.

BTW, this is a good time to opt in for wintery gifts! I used to try and get everyone done. If we talk a lot, I probably already had you on there. Obviously Carrie, Dove (books) and Sarajaye are already on my list, though if anyone else wants to exchange things, go for it. (I tried to get Samu something on Steam once, and there wasn't anything I could find that he didn't already have! Would you just prefer some f/f?)

-Good thing I cleared out so much room on my bookcase, considering I bought quite a few books. And most of these, save the Hayes and Grimsley, which are LGBT, will be kept.

The total haul:

and the aforementioned "how to write a romance novel." I think I generally have a good handle on writing romance, but I've been running into structural issues when trying to do novel sized work, so I was hoping to find something to help me figure out what I keep tripping up on. In fact, the only Howdunit series I don't order is one which seems to
just be a retread of the earlier works, so I skipped it.
I got outbid on all the video games I tried to get (Zero Time Dilemma, Azran Legacy) so I just decided to be a responsible adult(tm) and buy more research books instead.

I wanted to go hard for two weeks, but it looks like I'm just going to get one. Annoying. Oh well, I guess I'll have to split my 14 in 14 into two weeks, or up it to 14 in 7.

I will probably be very scarce for a while. I have two big deadlines coming up fic wise.

Behind the Mask, a superhero anthology

In general, http://writingcareer.com/ has a lot of anthologies/presses to try. When I'm not behind on my quota, I'll start sifting through more.

Open calls for publishing thread. Hey, Radicarian, Blacktreacle sounds like it could be a good place to start with that last horror piece you just finished.

List the first paragraph of your last ten stories, and see if you find any patterns.

(content notes: Medical stuff/needles mention, unsanitary mentions, spoilers, some mention mental illness stuff)

Fic: Set Up

Title: Set Up.
Series: 999 (Zero Escape)
Character/pairing: Akane, Sigma
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 1153
Author's note: Kiu22 really didn't like the ending of ZTD, and we bartered an art trade for fix-it fic. Also like, late birthday stuff?

I refuse to believe that Sigma got old and boring and cling steadfastly to the OTP of Sigma/being awful forever.

fic: Retry

Title: Retry
Series: 999 (Zero Escape)
Character/pairing: Akane, Sigma
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 715
Author's note: Kiu22 really didn't like the ending of ZTD, and we bartered an art trade for fix-it fic. Technically, this only touches at ZTD, and is much like the Akane coda in VLR.

HC_Bingo: Apocalypse.
