An improvement on yesterday, today I wrote 7,000+ of the fic exchange fic where I'd been thinking OH.FUCK about the assignment ever since I received it. I'm like, why did I offer this fandom? I've never even read any fic in this fandom... okay, so I've just watched every episode in this fandom, so I know it better than the things that are old fandom options that I haven't watched in forever that I subbed it in for on the signup, but.

And having written the fic, I checked out the other fic in the fandom and discovered that I seem to have written A Pairing That Does Not Exist. Or at least, the other single-digit number of fics out there are really short and really... predominantly non-con. Which, WTF, is not even remotely how I see the pairing -- I mean I like non-con and consent issues stuff but I don't see it as an intrinsic part of this pair -- what even is this, why?

I am staggered, staggered, because it's such a good pairing and such a strong/interesting/layered canon relationship, and okay, the show has a very strong canon het ship and the fandom seems het-based, but even so. I do not get it. Baffled.

I have one more other-fandom fic to write and then I'll be mainlining Haven again until Halloween, I think. I hope. Probably. I have a bunch of things I really want to write and just haven't had time to even approach, like the cap to the House of Mara series and post-finale fix-its. Agent Carter may get a look-in because Jack still has not suffered enough and I bought DVD documentaries on Iwo Jima to watch.
TITLE: Great Stores, Great Choices

DISCLAIMER: Not mine, no profit, yadda, yadda, yadda.

Oh, thank goodness. I just wrote the fic for the fic exchange I was getting seriously worried I wasn't going to be able to do, as I'd foolishly signed up for a small-fandom ficathon in a fandom I hadn't written in for 10 years.

I am swamped in all the ficathons I signed up to at the moment, but I am getting there, I think, and should be out the other side very soon.

Meanwhile, on the plus side! SSRConfidential is live and I got a brilliant gift fic, a case story set after the end of season 2 that fixes that cliffhanger of an ending then goes on to deliver more !adventures!:

Sometimes When We Touch - Peggy/Jack/Daniel, Strange as it was to admit it, he liked being around Sousa. Carter, too. He couldn’t really pinpoint when it was that their bickering got less pointed and more good-natured or why, but it was nice, even if they were the only people in the SSR who would dare to talk back to him with enough insubordination that any boot camp drill instructor would have kicked their asses to Japan and back if they had been in the Marines.

The quality of the fic I've read so far is exceptionally high and you can find 35 new Agent Carter stories here:

Go read!

Three and a half episodes into watching the new Agent Carter series, I had to stop the player to write 1500 words of Chief Daniel Sousa/Chief Jack Thompson telephone sex, because apparently this is where my brain is at and will not be moved from, so far as this series is concerned.

Having a very lazy afternoon because I spent all the weekend at the local music festival and basically haven't stopped or slept properly or really eaten properly between heading to work midday on Friday and coming back from work this afternoon, so I figured I'd catch up on some of the things I've saved to watch.

I haven't finished the telephone sex fic at 1500 words. No idea how long it's gonna be. They're being all bantery with each other. This does mark the first fic I've written spontaneously for the fandom, rather than for an exchange, though.

Summary: Duke has no memory beyond the last few days and seems to be existing in a life of hard labour he's fairly sure shouldn't be his life, but things aren't all bad -- not since falling in love with the likewise-amnesiac 111, of the blue eyes and compulsively helpful nature.

Title: Sky Haven
Fandoms: Haven
Pairings: Audrey/Jordan/Nathan
Summary: Audrey and Nathan are sorely missing the third component of their relationship when a reality-bending Trouble changes the fabric of the town itself. Can an alternate Jordan McKee help them fix Haven and themselves from hundreds of feet above the ground?


Favorite story of my own: Okay, so I was pasting in that list and already thinking that this year is all about House Divided and Trigger as far as I am concerned. I'm gonna say House Divided for this one because it was such a freakin' labour of love and effort and omfg. The whole breaking down masculinity thing? I enjoyed that. A lot. And fuck but it means a whole lot more after the ending the show gave us that I have my own universe where Nathan and Audrey saved Haven and stayed together, even if there was a cost, and Duke got a happy fucking ending.

My best story of the year: I'll call Trigger as more technically polished than House Divided, and for the original characters and the casefile.

My story most underappreciated by the universe: Lightning Rod. I love the Trouble, but hardly anyone is interested in the pairing and the fact that the major ships are all split up to bring it about.

My most fun story: Sky Haven and Clockwork tie! I honestly cannot make a decision between Haven being hung up in the air and Jordan with (artificial) wings, and Nathan as an automaton and the Cape Rouge as an airship under privateer captain Duke.

My sexiest story: Fortess is totally the smuttiest smutty thing, and it's four-way sex at that.

Story with single sexiest moment: I....... am rather fond of the smut in Seven Day Week when they're both trying to be top, and generally, the physicality in the fic ended up very raw and sensuous, and I loved writing it.

Story with single sweetest moment: I figure it's got to be in Two Days//Twenty Years.. Though the Garland and young!Nathan scene at the end of Trigger is very sweet in an anything-but-sweet fic.

Most unintentionally *telling* story: Two Days//Twenty Years takes its impetus from friends and relatives with chronic pain conditions, but it's not unintentional. Generally I don't do things that aren't at least aware, with subject matter? I think?

Holy crap that’s *wrong*: Probably most of House Divided, probably the *scale* of its wrongness depends on which corner of the fandom you ask. XD

Most disappointing story: I wanted to do so much more with the challenge fic that became Redefinitions, or an Ode to Avoiding Commitment but I ran out of time, although what I posted seems to have been reasonably well received.

Hardest to write: Probably Clockwork, in terms of sheer effort. It was relatively smooth until Part 3, in the latter half things got difficult. 27 Years Bad Luck wins most difficult to edit.

Easiest to write: Trigger wrote itself in a weekend away, Seven Day Week in a few days.

This year’s theme and the story that demonstrates that: A tie between polyamory and memory/identity. I'll go for Funerary Rites as representing both.

Do you have any fanfic goals for the New Year? My biggest goal at the moment is to edit and post Unbreakable #3: Shattered.
This was the fic that involved much flailing from me and was mostly written on the archive in between the deadline and the exchange going live because I had another plan and a longer fic started that, well. *sigh* Maybe that will get written one day.

TITLE: Redefinitions, or An Ode to Avoiding Commitment
AUTHOR: roseveare
PAIRING: Peggy Carter/Daniel Sousa/Jack Thompson
SUMMARY: It begins because Jack’s an ass and Peggy needs a release and somehow it’s… easier… knowing that he’ll be an ass about it, to turn to him than anyone else...

Redefinitions, or An Ode to Avoiding Commitment )
Since such a thing seemed inexplicably not to exist, I made a thing:

LJ version shortly to follow. This particular fandom may be pretty young but let's prove fandom ain't dead on LJ/DW yet. Please join, post, and spread the word. I mean literally anything is a-ok as long as it's not dickish. Feel free to start kink memes and round robins and fic exchanges off it as a base or whatever you want.

Anyone wants to be more actively involved/design a layout/header, etc, let me know and I'll give you mod access. I nominated myself as the one to make it because it wasn't there.

It's incredibly odd that I can't find one, that other people can't fine one. It seems impossible that it not exist. I guess if something turns up after all I can always get rid of it, but what if everyone's holding off making one because they can't believe it either?
Um, okay, these went unanon earlier than I was expecting. So I wrote this. I have no particular idea where to post, this, so if anyone knows any communities that would be good.

I usually try not to divert from canon this much unless writing a specific AU, but I kind of screwed up, and by the time I realised it would have been impossible to disentangle the story before the deadline, so the background timeline is skewed. Still, sex pollen!
