So, like the rest of my f-list I shall reveal to you my
So I wrote the Gerard/Lyn-Z crossdressing fic Black Satin - here
at my journal. It seems like while the pairing threw some people (it's not exactly one of my ususals - I have only written Gerard/Lyn-Z once before
and it was femmeslash because I made Gee a girl so I don't even know if that counts) but a handful of people picked it as me IMMEDIATELY because I am the MOST OBVIOUS.
I had dancinbutterfly
with me on claims day and we were both madly scanning the MOMENT the post went up. I remember I was looking for a Frank/Gerard prompt because I feel like I've been neglecting my OTP lately but when I saw Gerard/Lyn-Z crossdressing: Gerard in Lyn-Z's stage outfit - schoolgirl skirt, snug jacket, stockings, panties
that one just SPOKE to me.
Writing it was such a marathon, OMG. dancinbutterfly
and I hit the pub the Sunday before due date and just knuckled down and WROTE. I got 4k written that day at the pub, Rach and I with our laptops and T joined us later with a book and OMG we are SUCH DORKS that our idea of a good time is going to a pub to WRITE. But even after 5K I hadn't really gotten to the sex. I'm sure everyone on twitter was SO SICK OF ME WHINING all OMG LONG FIC IS LONG WILL THIS NEVER END
all day. I tend to get very active on twitter when I am supposed to be doing work. WHAT?
God I can't believe it wound up being 7k of like ONE SCENE of PORN. I am SO WORDY. I used to be able to bang out a fic in 2000 words. Those days are GONE BABY GONE. By the end I had no idea how I felt about it, it just felt like OMG TOO MANY WORDS FOR WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY.
But luckily I had a pikasafire
to look it over for me and convince me that YES it's totally worth posting, for which I am MOST grateful. Then shiningartifact
totally squeezed in time to beta it on her lunchbreak
at work on the DAY OF POSTING with ZERO NOTICE because I am crap with deadlines and she is awesome and made of magic and rainbows. Really C, I owe you SO MUCH, you really improved it and so FAST.
The coolest part of it all is that the prompt I got was brooklinegirl
's and I had NO idea that it was when I was writing it~ And apparently people kept guessing that SHE wrote the fic and she DID NOT CORRECT THEM because she was being stealthy and trying to distract people from identifying her totally awesome Making Of
fic as hers. Not to mention that shiningartifact
knew it was T's prompt when she betaed it and KEPT IT A SECRET like a champ. Ahahahaa. I love this anon thing, it's SO MUCH FUN.
Seriously, I've had SUCH a good time participating and I'll totally be back next year. All the kudos to airgiodslv
for running such a great challenge.
