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.

30 Days of Fanfiction -- Day 10: Pairings - Working outside your comfort zone )

Like I said above, I'm trying to go outside my comfort zone, particularly given my re-infatuation with the Star Wars EU. I'm trying to write some 'nice' Luke/Mara in the worst way (possibly in the literal sense -- it's hard!). So here are a few snippets, with varying levels of success:

Nice. )


Not quite so nice... )


Definitely not nice. )

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.' )
