Title: In the Wells of Silence
Pairing: Gen
Rating: PG
Warnings: None; general spoilers for Season 8.
Summary: A voice seems like such a small thing to barter, compared to everything he’s already given up. Written for the Wish List/Wish Fulfillment Party at [livejournal.com profile] hoodie_time in response to [livejournal.com profile] nong_pradu's request:

Wish 2. Dean loses his voice (like full-on Little Mermaid, voice-stolen). Can be funny or angsty.

A/N: Crossposted at Archive of Our Own.

Of all the stupid fucking ways to die, seriously. )

Thought regarding the most recent SPN episodes: why is it that Dean is always the one getting the "You KNOW, family is IMPORTANT" lectures? He's the last person who needs that lecture. His entire personality pretty much is that lecture.

Sam, on the other hand, could maybe use it every once in a while. And I don't think I've ever heard him get it from anyone other than Dean.

Pairing: Dean/Eliot
Warnings/Spoilers: none

Should be doing homework. Instead, am writing smutty, smutty porn about Eliot Spencer and Dean Winchester having adrenaline-fueled sex in a motel room in Mexico.

I am quite possibly a failure as a grad student. It's probably a good thing this is my last semester.

Title: In the Footsteps of Dawn
Pairing: Gen
Warnings: Spoilers through 8.01
Rating: PG
Summary: Dean escaped from Purgatory, but that doesn’t mean he’s done running. Missing moments from 8.01.

A/N: So, I'm slowly getting back into SPN, but this is the first thing I've written in this fandom in quite a while. I do hope y'all enjoy. :)


There's a rustle in the leaves overhead and he jerks to a halt, but it's just a squirrel. )

Just finished watching The Girl With the Dungeons and Dragons Tattoo. So. Cute redheaded lesbian? Check. Harry Potter references? Check. Princess Leia tattoos? Check check check (Comicon. COMICON!).

Also, Charlie has no idea how to chat up a guy, but Dean is apparently a pro. For some reason.

God, I forgot how much I love this show.

So, hey, guys, I haven't been posting...like, at all. I haven't really been doing much with fandom lately, but that's because I am working on Serious Original Fic. About werewolves and ex-immortals and the politics involved in running an insular clan of vampire hunters and there may be giant telepathic lions in there somewhere, idek.

Also, my brother is graduating from boot camp on Friday, and I'm getting on a plane for the first time in like five years to go see it. I'm mildly terrified.

Anyway. Random snippet of a random thing I have been working on:

Title: bedlam of sleep
Pairing: Charles/Erik pre-slash
Rating: R, for thematic elements
Warnings: Bad dreams, inexplicit mention of past abuse and possible non-con.
Summary: Erik is used to nightmares, but this one is not his. Written for this prompt on [livejournal.com profile] xmen_firstkink.

A/N: So, I just watched X-Men: First Class and naturally the first thing I did was go digging through the kinkmemes. And, naturally, this was the one I decided to write. Also, I don't actually speak German, so if my translations are egregiously wrong, please let me know.

EDIT: and thank you to [livejournal.com profile] camellie and [livejournal.com profile] freuen for doing exactly that. :)

Ugh. I know I haven't posted since, like, the beginning of time, but I thought I'd pop my head up and let anybody who's still reading this know that I'm not actually dead yet. So: my life recently in bullet form!

  • My old junker car was perilously close to giving up the ghost (as they always seem to do right in the middle of the winter), and I had to get a new one. In the interest of not dumping tons of time and money into another junker that's just going to die a year from now, we bought a new (-ish) car. It's a wonderful vehicle, except for the part where it cost about $200 less than my total annual income.
  • Speaking of total annual income, I just did my taxes and found out that I would owe the federal govt. $500 if it weren't for the academic credits I get for tuition. As it is, I'm breaking even.
  • I sold my old car for less than a thousand dollars. Considering that it had a bent frame, no functioning dash lights, a radiator leak, a rattling muffler, and a hood that had to be opened with a jury-rigged bent clothes-hanger hooked to the release, that's not actually that bad a deal.
  • I started classes, full-time. And I'm applying for another job, which will bring my working hours up to 45 hours/week and my free time down to zero. And still no health insurance or bennies. I haven't had a day off since the last time I called in sick, which was, oh, thirteen months ago. Give or take.
  • I still have not caught up with SPN. I keep meaning to, but it keeps not happening. I have been addicted recently to Leverage, Sherlock Holmes, and 80's Brat Pack movies, but I haven't actually had any time to write. It doesn't look like I'll be getting any anytime soon, either. :/
  • I've pretty much quit drinking. I can't afford the time sink. Although in the interest of having one awful health habit at all times, I'm considering taking up smoking again...

Anyway...I miss you all. I miss fandom. I will be back....

Title: if your hope should pass away
Pairings: Watson/Mary, Holmes/Watson implied
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Character death, attempted suicide
Summary: In which Watson reaches the end of his rope. Written for this prompt on [livejournal.com profile] shkinkmeme:

Watson falls into a deep depression when Holmes dies, but when Mary succumbs to illness it pushes him over the edge to the point where he flips out and attempts suicide (preferably morphine overdose or the like).

All the while, Holmes is secretly watching in terror and tries to save him.



During her funeral, he begins to wonder if he is going deaf. )

Title: prelude to a wedding
Pairing: Holmes/Watson UST
Warnings: None
Rating: PG
Summary: In which Watson is late to his own wedding and Holmes is a master of disguise. One-sided Holmes/Watson, missing scene from the 2011 film A Game of Shadows.


"Unbelievable," Watson mutters for the third time, as the bagpipers finish the phrase and very considerately begin again. )

Title: and grace will lead me home
Pairing: Gen
Rating: PG
Warnings: vague references to canonical non-con
Summary: Bob Sweeny visits an inmate in prison. Drabble.


"Hospital," the night guard told him when he showed up to talk to Derek, and shook his head. "Man. They fucked him up bad." )

So, I've been doing my yearly re-read of Lord of the Rings (yes, I know. Shut up.), which naturally coincides with my yearly quest to find some decent fic. I keep doing this, even though I have a tiny handful of fics that I keep returning to because most of what's out there (at least for the characters I want to read about, namely hobbits) all seems to pretty much suck.

There's a fair amount of slash out there, of course, but I'm not really partial to any slash pairings involving any combination of Frodo, Sam, Merry, and Pippin. Partly, because three of the aforementioned hobbits are cousins and even after all this time in SPN I tend to find incest more squicky than romantic. In the case of Frodo/Sam, I just can't seem to see it in their relationship, although I've seen a handful of fics that handle it well (also, more generally, I find it annoying when the main argument for the pairing is 'but they're so devoted to each other; they MUST be screwing!' Like a pairing or don't like it on its own merits, but it's possible for two people to love each other fiercely without sex ever entering into the equation).

The problem, of course, is that there's this whole other side of LOTR fandom where the attitude is more...archaic. Like, 'This takes place in Ye Olden Days, therefore it's impossible for any of the characters to be gay, and also it's an insult to Tolkien's memory if you suggest they are.'

If there's a middle ground between hobbit orgies and gen writers who are defensive liek whoa about their TOTAL LACK OF ANY GAYNESS, I have yet to find it.

Well, I have successfully written 50k, which works out to about three quarters of the story. I only really developed a plot around the last 5k, though, which means I pretty much have to go back and re-write the entire rest of it.

...at least it's something to do.

Also, I'm considering finally sitting down to catch up on SPN. Can anybody advise if this is a good idea? Or will I just want to beat my TV to death when I'm finished?

An excerpt from my MASTERPIECE:

It's quiet down on the east side of the waterfront... )

NaNo

glorious_spoon: (Default)
So, I'm not dead. I'm doing NaNo this year, which sort of amounts to the same thing (also, I've been so disillusioned with SPN; I have to admit I still haven't seen any of S7. I might go back and finish some of my older WIPs, but I think I'm more or less done with the fandom).

It's been a while since I've written this much original fic. I'm like 16K in already, but I have a feeling I'm going to hit a brick wall sometime soon....

Boston police move in on protesters on Greenway, scores arrested

So, about a hundred people were arrested in Boston last night. According to the Boston PD, it was properly warned for, entirely provoked, and professionally handled. According to half a dozen people I know who were there, the police kicked the crap out of several protesters, refused medical attention to several more, and destroyed all the medical supplies, tents, and personal property belonging to the protesters by dint of tossing it in a couple of garbage trucks and compacting it.

I'm so fucking pissed off right now that my hands are actually shaking.
