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 keep seeing that 'WiP title and first line' meme around on my friends list. My first reaction was, "Like I need to play with more works-in-progress..." But after taking a second look, I realized I have a few that are shareable.

Excluding my long-running (should that be 'half-published?' oh dear) works-in-progress, here are a few:

The Comeback Kid (The Lone Gunmen): Even after all this time, Jimmy still got the yips.

Riddles of the Sphinx (Harry Potter): Albus had eyes on her, even here. How maddening.

Romeo and Ethel the Pirate's Daughter (Star Wars EU): It only took two days for Mara to decide that she really hated Bowre.

Conception (SG-1): The Book of Origin taught that children were to respect, revere and, inevitably, replace their parents.

The Suicide Blondes Book Club (Veronica Mars): Let's face it, the blonde cheerleader is always the first one to die.

The Pharaoh's Daughter [working title] (Harry Potter): Helga was born from the river, a child of rushes and weeds.

(Testing out this whole cross-posting thing...)

So I totally lied. I have not, in fact, finished Part 7 of Percy Weasley: Rogue Demon Hunter. What I've done instead is write 65 pages of Iteration. This is actually exactly what happened back at Christmastime with PW:RDH. I had some time off work, my husband was working, I didn't have any obligations, etc., so I sat down and wrote about 70 pages of the most pivotal plot and character stuff. All I've been doing since then is filling in the blanks -- which makes the whole process a million times easier for me versus staring down a bunch of blank, empty chapters with only a vague outline as my guide. So now I feel slightly more confident that both of these pieces might actually see the light of day again.

What this means is that sometime in the not too distant future, I'll be in the market for someone who knows Star Wars (and specifically the EU) to take a look at the first few chapters of this beast and tell me if I've totally gone off the reservation. (Actually, I know I'm completely off the res with this one. It puts the "augh!" in "AU." What I really want to know is whether it works.)

That said, I like this fic primarily because it lets me indulge my love for sidekicks and unlikely heroes, and it's proven to have possibly the best fic 'soundtrack' of all time... )
