I have a sudden influx of new readers to Percy Weasley: Rogue Demon Hunter over at FFN (which I'll confess to rarely checking, except to use as a kind of 'test market' for fic that I'm not sure about). That means someone, somewhere must have recced the fic, which is always lovely. Thank you, whoever you are, if you happen to see this. I do intend to finish it, I'm just notoriously slow at finishing long works-in-progress, on the order of years rather than months. So, be warned.

In other news, I've acquired an iPad, which is not helping my Pinterest addiction, but has provided me with a convenient way to read books and magazines something I haven't bothered to do much these last few years.

I have not been posting at all lately. I need some structure I think to keep me posting regularly, otherwise all my writing energy goes into plugging away at my WiPs (well, and Pinterest -- let's be honest).

I have, on the other hand, been writing. I'm better than halfway through Iteration, which I've decided to just knock out entirely before I go back to Percy Weasley: Rogue Demon Hunter and deal with how much I hate chapter 7. :(

In the meantime, here's a bit from right in the middle of Iteration (a.k.a. the Star Wars EU AU that I always hoped someone else would write so I wouldn't have to), just to prove to myself that I haven't wussed out again on this whole fandom thing. I do love this fic, despite that it's entirely self-indulgent and mostly written for an audience of one. It's also threatening to be novel-length, so there's that, too.

I have not dropped off the map again, I promise, despite the fact that it's been almost a month since I've done, well, anything here. The autumn is just shaping up to be incredibly busy -- weddings, engagements, babies, baby showers, birthdays, football, pumpkin carving parties, happy hours and Sunday dinners... I'm certainly not complaining, though. :)

Given all that, this is me trying to keep writing on my radar.

Man, do I ever have issues with Part 7 of Percy Weasley: Rogue Demon Hunter. If it wouldn't blow up the plot entirely, I'd just ditch it and move on to Part 8. :(

A few short bits from upcoming chapters, though, because why not?

'Hey, Tall, Dark and Groovy…' )

I pressed my brother into service doing an initial edit on Iteration, despite the fact that he's in the midst of his tenure review. I figured he owes me, since I let him talk to me for an hour about Freespace the other night. (I'm not a gamer by any stretch, but consider me... intrigued... by that one.)

Anyway, while chapters 1-4 of this one are off getting the professor-treatment, here's a bit of that as well.

A couple more pieces for that drabble meme. I'm plugging away at the others, slowly buy surely. :)

We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance, Parker/Hardison, Leverage for [profile] ticketsonmyself

The rest... )

I've completed two of the prompts for that drabble meme so far, with more to come shortly! For now, though:

I Won't Dance, Don't Ask Me, Albus/June, Harry Potter/Dreamwalk Blue for anonymous

Bridesmaids, Ginny Weasley, Harry Potter for [profile] catewigs

Plus, 30 Days of Fanfiction -- Day 8: Original Characters )

Previous days are here.

I have not forgotten about my prompts for the drabble meme. They are coming. The LJ downtime, a wedding weekend, out of town guests, a birthday party, a going away party and a training schedule that included running +30 miles all in the past week and a half kind of got in the way.

In the meantime, though, there's this:

30 Days of Fanfiction: Day 3 -- The Characters )

Previous days are here.

I told myself I was going to stop posting snippets from my in-progress fics -- it feels oddly like cheating for some reason -- but, in the past, it has helped me get back on track when I've been stalled. Something about seeing my words in a published forum seems to jog stuff loose for me, I don't know why. I am stalled lately, for a variety of good and not-so-good reasons (including phase one of the remodel on our house and prepping for a half-marathon). So, what the hell? Here goes.

From Percy Weasley: Rogue Demon Hunter, Episode 7: 'Percy is a weapons-grade wanker; you won't get any argument from me on that point. But do you know what he also is? He's pretty decent at this whole 'champion for good' thing.' )

From Iteration (Star Wars EU): 'The irony was that they'd actually won at Bilbringi. The Republic had, anyway, with a healthy assist from them – which made what the Repubs had ultimately done to repay them all the shittier.' )

I've been a little distracted lately, for a variety of reasons. So, to keep myself posting regularly, here is a meme (seen around on the friends' list):

Fic Meme )

I'd still love to hear from people on this post -- rec me an author, a fandom, community, journal, etc., you think I should be reading.

(And speaking of my slow reintroduction to fandom, etc., -- the LiveJournal ads appear to know where I had drinks last night, which is... creepy? Is this like a thing now?)

And, as promised here, for [profile] delentyevox, a fun little Albus/June/Hayden ficlet from the Dreamwalk Blue universe.

(Previous fics in this same timeline are New Year's Eve, 1937 and Oxford, 1938)

August, 1938: Albus's mother throws a rather nice garden party, at which Albus and Hayden almost (but don't quite) meet, Hayden waltzes, and June and Albus end up in the rosebushes. (Set in the Dreamwalk Blue universe.) )
