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.

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.

Wiped myself out at the allotment today. 4 hours. Bath. food. Day gone. Managed to write another few thousand words and to finish the title pic this morning, though.

Thinking about fic titles, because I've been thinking how much input the titles of my current Evil Babies -- that's House Divided and Eurydice's Adventures in the Underworld, the original one, have shaped the stories. Because both of those came along really early in the writing/planning process. So with Eurydice I was constantly reminding myself that the fic was MARA'S story, who is both Orpheus genderflipped searching for William, as well as Nathan's Eurydice, and I love Nathan insanely -- he doesn't have to be being nice for me to love him -- but Mara's situation was the centre point. With House Divided, the title really has determined how all the fractures play out in the plot, and I wanted Audrey vs. Mara, which the show said it wanted but never really ever did do, so the division shot through the fic is both the one in MarAudrey's brain and Nathan and William's counter intentions and affections pulling in opposing directions.

SO how about a titles meme?

Came part and parcel with the idea for the story: 5 Times Jordan McKee Killed Nathan Wuornos. Ha. Ha. Hahahaha. House Divided, the minute I knew I wanted to write a sequel. Down. Sky Haven pretty much WAS the inspiration for that one, and I didn't want to call it that because I already had Cape Haven, but I didn't have any other ideas and it was so intimately connected I couldn't bring myself to do anything else.

Panic stations! The fic is ready to post/I have to post this tomorrow and I don't have a title: Cape Haven. I hate that I had to call it that. Gotta be a better freakin' name for a superhero AU out there. Also Men Fear to Tread... I was still debating the title as I posted.

I have to call it something and it might as well be that: Redemption of Killers and Rogues acquired that title really early on and nothing better ever came up. Trail of Evidence. Breathe. Most of the meme ones. A lot of the pinch hits and fic exchange ones.

LordKingBadTitle: The Great Looney Tunes Caper of 2010 sucks donkey balls. Most of my One Piece titles are bad because the fics were written for the anonmeme and often didn't have titles originally, and generally I think I was having a sucky patch with titles.

Loaners (suggested by my beta reader/my mum/some guy I accosted on the street/the cat): Katta suggested Il Seraglio for the Luffy-trying-to-get-Sanji-out-of-the-harem fic.

Title that makes me glee like an idiot: Eurydice's Adventures in the Underworld, Trigger, and Pinocchio is Bleeding. Maybe 5 Times Jordan McKee Killed Nathan Wuornos, but not because it's clever, just because it makes me snigger. Mister Niska and the Ancient Art of Marriage Counselling. William the Bloody Useless and the Beaker of Doom? Back on a serious note, Theatre of the Absurd (which is also both darkly punny and integrally connected to the story's early inspiration).

Punny: Twisted was meant to be a play on Tangled. I guess Pinocchio is Bleeding and Trigger are punny, in a dark way. Containment Integrity. Stone Cold Killer. The Naked Truth... suddenly I'm realising I have more of these than I thought.

One worders that don't suck: I think Trigger is fucking genius. :P Silencer isn't bad and Unbreakable, Risen and Desperation are all titles I'm happy with. Waxwork is an old one I'm really happy with. (Fix sucks, though. Inertia sucks. And most of the Firefly titles suck - I came up with them all in too short a time frame.)

Best attempt to break AO3's character limit: Four Times Nathan or Duke got Caught in the Crossfire (& one time they didn't) is the wordiest. But I'm often fairly wordy.

Working title alternatives and "You can't call it that"s: I wanted the third installment of Unbreakable to be The Death of Nathan Wuornos, but after due mocking it's going to be Shattered. Pinocchio is Bleeding was a major, MAJOR "can I really call it this?" almost throughout the whole process, but it did get called that. Sea Change II was that for so long that I literally couldn't bring myself to name it anything else by the time it came to posting. Dwight Hendrickson and the Tigers From Mars got a lot of squinty-eyed looks but as soon as I thought of that it was doomed, DOOMED to be called that. There's no way I was changing it.

What does it meeeaaan?: Winter's Flotsam is the debris left after the snow melts. I am/was pretty sure. But googling it doesn't help much.

Literary Allusions/Song titles: I don't do the song titles (or lyrics, I think?) thing. Oh, wait, I do have one: Comfortably Numb. Scuppered by Pink Floyd. The Sky is Falling is the name of a science fiction book by Lester del Rey that I read multiple times as a teenager.

From [personal profile] escritoireazul : If you were to be summoned by occult means, what three items would be placed in the summoning circle?

A bottle of half decent whiskey, a drum, and a B5 lined notebook and pen.

From [personal profile] anonymous_sibyl: Meme for the “Experienced” Side of Tumblr

1. How many jobs have you had, and which was your favorite? 5? 6? One of them lasted three weeks. One of them got transferred to a different location/organisation where it kinda feels like a different job. I like where I am now. They don't like us to broadcast who we work for on the internet, but it's in healthcare admin.

2. When did you first connect to other people via computers? At uni, 1996.

3. Were/are you on AOL? Compuserve? LJ? Dreamwidth? A Listserv? Other? My fandom used to be yahoo lists, followed by livejournal.

4. If you went to college, does your major match your career/current job? Not in the least.

5. Have you had a mammogram? Colonoscopy? No.

6. When did you get your first cell phone? What was it like? (Did it have a screen? Could you text? Was it a brick or flip?) I've only had two. I used the first until it broke. Then I bought the cheapeset replacement possible with a flip top and intend to use that the same. It's a phone. It's for brief phone calls and arrangement type texts and that's it. Guessing it was about 8-9 years ago I got the first one? I am hugely resistant to intrusive technology that means people expect me to communicate with them no matter where I am and what I'm doing.

7, When did your family first acquire a color TV? It was late, we had no money. I remember watching Doctor Who episodes in black and white that were definitely made in colour. And also snooker, hah. I think I was about 8-9. 1986-7?

8. When did your family acquire a second TV? ??????????????Around 1990-92 possibly we bought a new TV and VCR and the old tv got stuck in a back room?

9. Did you ever own “designer jeans”? No.

10. Have you ever been to a disco? Before I was old enough to drink. We did still call them that in high school, but it might be regional.

11. How many places (towns, states, countries) have you lived in? I've lived in every county of Yorkshire plus Lancashire and Nottinghamshire. 7 towns??

12. Have any of you contemporary friends died? (I.e., people more or less you age.) I don't think so.

13. Are you parents still living? Yes. Morbid questions much?

14. Do you have any gray hairs? Actually, no. :P I keep thinking I spot the odd one but it's not definite yet.

15. Did you or your family own a Betamax? No.

16. How did you spend New Year’s Eve 1999/2000? With my family.

17. What’s the oldest article of clothing you still wear? I still have a cashmere coat that was bought for my birthday about 20 years ago.

18. Do you eat your vegetables? That's my main diet.

19. Are the privileges of adulthood worth the responsibilities? I loathed being a teenager. Also, what responsibilities? (Kidding. Or not...)

20. Do you feel like an adult? Yes? I don't know that that has to mean what a lot of people seem to think it means. It doesn't mean you have to lose your sense of fun. Or stop watching cartoons. Or roller-skating. Or anything else you want to do. Don't take life so serious just because you have to be ultimately responsible for yourself.

21. Is youth wasted on the young? Like anonymous_sibyl said. I challenge the assumptions of the question.
Fic happened! Okay, it was a short thing I'd been sitting on the idea for and not letting myself indulge because of NaNo, but I wrote a whole fic! Just in the last 18 hours! Haven, Duke/Nathan, PG-13, slightly weird. Looking for a beta. Hoping to post fairly quick?

December Talking Meme

Taken from everywhere, doctored severely:

Pick a date below and give me a topic. It can be anything from fandom-related (specific characters, actors, storylines, episodes, etc.) to whatever you want. (Allotment stuff. Bead-weaving. Druidry. Food. Alcohol. You can prompt me for a drabble/shortfic if you want).

They will probably be brief, or not, depending on the subject. If you ask me about a fandom I haven't been in since last century, be prepared for the possibility, 'kay?

Also, I reserve the right to decline prompts that I don't feel equipped to meet (^Or just be really brief). I can't promise to have internet access every day, so some of these may get posted the day after.
