Crazy Pills

MARVEL IS BREAKING ME

Okay. Okay. Okay.

I've been reading a lot of Winter Soldier fic and I have issues.

First of all, how does one even write in this fucking universe? And this isn't limited to Marvel, but comics in general. Everything has been retconed four bazillion times. Everyone dies. Everyone comes back to life. Everyone gets weird powers. Everyone has their powers taken away. Everyone gets turned into animals, has kids, wards, pets, and gets magically transformed into Anime characters. They switch names and identities and genders and just. I don't. I can't.

What the fuck sticks? Anything? Ever? It's like every beef folks have with Moffat's Who but times a million.

And while part of me, the part that loved writing in the Whedonverse because of it's malleability, loves that there are no rules for writing these characters, conversely, it's making very hard to find the hearts of the characters and write stories for them.

And then there are idiosyncrasies.

This is especially the case in the Winter Soldier and Captain America fics.

I like Tumblr as much as the next person, but the likelihood of either of those two thawing out and immediately embracing every nuance of modern society, social justice and sex and gender theory seems wildly unlikely. I mean, don't get me wrong, I fully believe Cap embodies all that is good and noble and well meaning. But it's tough for anyone outside a college classroom to be quite as PC as I've seen him written, and I didn't grow up Irish Catholic in the Depression. Handwaving away the cultural and religious mores he grew up with and failing to contextualize his poverty and illness in the time period is just...really sloppy. But more than that, it's lacking truth and missing a huge opportunity to tell a better story.

I like porn too. But I like it well characterized.

So basically, what this means is I don't understand why the Marvel movies are going to kill Steve off when they haven't exactly been slavish to the source material in all its other incarnations, I don't like SuperPC!Steve and I like SuperPC!Bucky even less unless there is some kind of explanatory character arc there, and I don't know how to even begin writing my own fic because there's way too fucking much source material and it's all over the goddamn map.

Fuck it. Imma go read some coffeeshop AUs.

Erik says WTF?

...slinks in wet and dripping something foul on the carpet.

Um, hey? So I know it's been just about a year since my last post. How are you all? I'm good. Kiddo is going into first grade, got the ASD diagnosis this year AND SO DID I. (Surprises all around, right? Yeah, no, me neither.) I've been writing stuff in the BBC Sherlock, ACD Sherlock and Hobbit fandoms, dipping my toes into NuTrek, Next Gen and TOS writing but nothing to post yet, also Captain America. Everything is slash.

Lots happened in the stuff I was doing with people we don't acknowledge publicly but basically it was a giant clusterfuck of epic proportions. Someday I'm going to write the Lifetime movie, but in the meantime, everyone is going to take a deep breath and get over the fact that certain fics are going to stay unfinished for the time being because I just can't unsee some of the shit I've seen now.

Marriage is good, I'm not working outside of the stuff I do with people (sorry if you're new and that's vague, you can message me privately if it's an issue and I'll clarify) but that's fine. Catch me up, y'all.

Spander SRS

Alive, kicking, needy.

So quick update for anyone still here, I'm still writing! Slowly. Very, very slowly. In fact, I may even be working on a certain Spander fic that's been unfinished for about two years. *ahem*

Here's my issue: I've been all over a bunch of different fandoms since the last time I worked on this fic. Not that I don't still love it, but between having Sherlock/the Hobbit/Star Trek take over my life and, well, RL stuff that's made working on it kind of weird for reasons I'm sure you can imagine, I'm having a tough time getting back into it.

BUT I WANT TO FINISH IT. I owe it to the people who've read it/are reading it and I owe it to myself to complete the trilogy.

And because I really, really miss this community, I'm going to trade on any good will left for my fandom jumping, LJ abandoning ass and ask for prompts to help me finish this beasty for the good of all slashkind. Single words, phrases, songs, adverbs, whatever. I'll take it. I just need some guideposts to write around while I try and get back into the mindframe of this story. So yeah. I can't promise anything definite, but my goal is to have this completed by the time I'm on the plane to Atlanta for DragonCon. (BTW, I'm at DragonCon with the usual suspects. If you're in the area, come find me.)

Erik says WTF?

Well I'm Clearly On Drugs

Because I just joined the sshg_promptfest. I'm just feeling nostalgic, I guess. I've been jumping around fandoms so much lately and lurking on Tumblr is addicting but isolating. I miss you guys. I miss all you guys.

I'll write you all something soon, yes? Leave any requests here. And let me know how you've been!

The words of the tale were like polished rocks, worn smooth by the passage of time. But these words, these particular words he’d committed to paper and done his utmost to never think on them but when the nights were coldest and he felt the call of the West most keenly. On those nights he would sometimes sit with his old ring before the fire until dawn, lest he be taken down into dreams sweetly torturous and the longing to wander affect him more strongly in the morning.

This is the account of a prince of Erebor, companion to the King Under the Mountain, King of Durin’s Folk…"

Writing > Housework

Welp.

Look. I know I've hardly been here in months. But guys, I just didn't know where else to go.

I've been writing Regency/Victorian gay porn for a month and a half and suddenly I'm Bagginshielding.

I've still got a NaNo novel to edit, a canon!Holmes ficlet to finish and post, and here I am, wondering how long it'd take me to read the Hobbit so I could write me some Hobbit porn.

I'm completely out of control. Please intervene. Or prompt.
