It's (about two weeks past) that time of year again! Ahahahaha, I am never on time for anything. But I like to do these fic roundups so here we go:

Fic I wrote in 2012 - the numbers )

Total written: 10 fics, 6 ficlets.
Total wordcount for 2012: 138 200 words
Not bad considering I was working insanely most of the year and didn't feel like I was getting much writing done at all. Definitely wrote less in the latter half of the year, but I had a lot going on in RL.

That meme with all the deep thoughts and feelings )

Once again, I'd like to thank anyone who's ever read any of my ridiculous ramblings, whether you commented or not. Thanks for being my audience! Massive thanks to all those awesome authors, podficcers, artists and other awesome fangirls and fanboys who keep producing the goods for me to consume. I love you guys.

Please do feel free to weigh in with any opinions in the comments. Even if it's just to tell me about Ray Toro's thighs. In fact, especially if it's about that.

Hey hey hey so it's V-day and apparently I should care. I kind of don't, really, though I would happily make out with everyone on my flist right now. Actually that isn't just a VDay thing, that is true of me EVERY day!

So, [ profile] no_tags was fun, wasn't it? I wrote that one that I have since heard referred to as "THE CREEPY STALKER THRU THE WINDOW ONE" and apparently it was obvious FROM SPACE that it was me. This kind of surprised me a little! Because usually I write like a long PWP where it's mostly sex, and this one had PLOT and as I said to [ profile] greedy_dancer NO ONE EXPECTS PLOT FROM ME, DO THEY? But apparently I smeared my id all over the page and my id looks a lot like Gerard being a creepy stalker with some fake boyfriends thrown in for good measure. Nice one, id.

(Fine, okay, I'll admit the voyeuristic side of things was probably a dead giveaway but WHATEVS.)

blather about the prompt-picking and writing process )

Also, I got a story! [ profile] eldee_fic got my prompt Frank/Gerard - this wasn't part of the plan and wrote You Live Life - a really gorgeous wingfic with some lovely imagery and it's her VERY FIRST bandom fic and it's LOVELY. You should read it!

So yeah, Sunday afternoon was FANGIRL MEETUPS!

Fangirls in London ahoy! )

Last little [ profile] no_tags thing, they are doing a bonus round, and if anyone were to write my spare prompt 32. Ray/Mikey - Ray gets way more action than anyone realizes. Mikey figures this out - I will give you my FIRST BORN. Or a cookie. Your choice! Hey, it doesn't hurt to ask, right?

Okay, LASTLY, here are some stupid faces for V-Day!


Happy Hallmark Day you gorgeous things!

Okay, so I was tweeting with [ profile] gala_apples and [ profile] turps33 and [ profile] dangerous_47 earlier about Summer of Like and I just need to post a little about how it continues to be one of my VERY FAVOURITE pieces of canon. So many feelings. Love, despair, friendship, augh. Sweet little dudes. Ex-friends, better off as lovers etc.

click for huge

If you don't know what I'm talking about, dear god read this ship manifesto NOW.

So, there are a lot of songs about Mikey and Pete's doomed love turned eternal friendship and Pete's written most of them. )

Half-assed RECS! )

So, TALK TO ME ABOUT SUMMER OF LIKE. What was your favourite canon thing? How do you think it went down? What are your favourite SOL fics? Link me to some picspams! Tell me things I've forgotten/gotten wrong! What OTHER songs should be on the epic playlist of "songs about the Summer Of Like"?

Tell me about the epic Summer Of Like fic you want someone to write! (EDIT! [ profile] turps33 TOTALLY DID. READ IT. Not!fic things in the comments! Write me Pete-like blog entries. Pimp this post to your friends and make THEM talk to me about SOL.

So the Author reveals for [ profile] bandomstuffsit have gone up!

The person who wrote my most excellent gift The Things Frank Plays is [ profile] s0ckpupp3t who is someone I'm not very familiar with so YAY now I get to go and backread lots of wonderful things! She did such a great job of filling the fic with things I love, I'm going to be devouring her masterlist with gusto.

...and apparently it wasn't at all obvious FROM SPACE which one I wrote:

The One Where Ryan Ross Thinks He Knows Everything - always-a-girl!Spencer/Ryan/Brendon, NC-17 - Original Post

YES. I WROTE PANIC. Not only did I write Panic, I wrote bb!OT3 high school Panic fic with always-a-girl!Spencer. Because apparently when I decide to write outside my comfort zone, I go WAY OUT of my comfort zone.

blather about the writing process )

Also, the BB OT3 high school AU was my SECOND attempt at writing this fic. My first attempt was going to be always-a-girl!Spencer/Ryan/Brendon established relationship fic where Ryan fucks up his flight on Christmas Eve and instead of having their first Christmas in LA like they planned, Brendon and Spencer have to road trip to Salt Lake City to find him and they have their first Christmas together in a hotel room at a random Holiday Inn. With sex. Punishing Ryan for missing his flight sex. Of course I got one scene into that fic before it all petered out and I just had to switch tracks if I wanted ANY hope of finishing on time.

I still have that first failed attempt at that fic, and I'm going to post it here like some kind of DVD-extra:

DVD EXTRA! A scene from The One Where Ryan Misses His Flight )

So that was my [ profile] bandomstuffsit adventure. How was yours? Was it easy to write your fic, or excruciatingly hard? Were you writing for someone you knew, or a stranger? Did you have to challenge yourself to fill your recipient's wishes, or did they turn out to be your long lost fic soulmate? Was there any fic you were DYING to find out who wrote? (I was desperate to know who wrote my gift, as well as the gorgeous Frank+Ways fic, which turned out to be [ profile] sneaky_sena so my masterlist-backreading-frenzy is only getting larger and larger...)

ladyfoxxx: (spencer grins)
Hey hey hey, so it was pouring rain yesterday and I got soaked on the way to work :( but I dried out eventually and my day improved with the addition of a nice cup of tea and some Patrick Stump.

I don't really believe in New Years resolutions, but I'm going to try to post more and keep up with comments this year. And COMMENT ON FICS when I READ THEM, fuck I am so BAD at doing that. I spent most of my spare moments yesterday clearing my LJ inbox and answering comments from as early as like, July. So if you got a comment reply from me for something you posted ages ago - that's why!

Anyway - today is the reveals for the [ profile] bandomstuffsit! I'm taking a page out of [ profile] turps33's book and asking - does anyone want to guess which one I wrote? (Hint: If you're on twitter you'll know I was freaking because it involved writing characters I'd NEVER written before, and I was whining about it. So there's that, but I feel like aside from that aspect it is obvious from SPACE that I wrote it.)

Anyone got a guess? Anyone? C'mon play with meeeeee...

I'll also take this opportunity to pimp the story that was written for ME and say I'm rather desperate to know who wrote THAT too! It's The Things Frank Plays by SOMEONE AWESOME. Gerard gets hard to handle on tour so Lindsey hires him a hooker, in the form of FRANK. It's really fucking gorgeous, hot, adorable, funny and I just LOVE the way that Frank is written in it. And Gerard is so GERARD, and did I mention the sex? Because it is SMOKING.

How about a list of some of the other stories from the exchange I really enjoyed?

Half Assed Recs List! )

This is by no means an exhaustive list, there's still so many I haven't read! /o\ Which ones did YOU love, dear flist, so I can make sure I put them on my to-read list?

Oh man, I just realised that posting a recs list in the same post as a guessing post might be giving a lot away (though I did comment on all those fics so it's not like I'm giving THAT much away.)
ladyfoxxx: (mcr are fabulous)
Okay, I was going to wait for stuffsit reveals so I could do final numbers, but I am too impatient! Here is my 2011: A Year In Fic post

Fic I wrote last year, with commentary )

Total number of fics: 19 fics, 2 "commentfics" that are really fics (over 1000 words), 2 not!fics, 4 ficlets, 1 podfic
Total word count for 2011: 144 296 words (excludes my [ profile] bandomstuffsit fic)

If you add on the 50 000 words I wrote for my NaNoWrimo, and my stuffsit numbers that gets me up around the 200k mark! I'm happy with that.

Those meme questions with all the deep thoughts and feelings )

Now that's a lot of navel gazing and a whole LOT of words! If you got through all that I love you. And if you've read ANY of my crazy ramblings this year, even if you didn't comment on them - thank you. If you've ever left me a comment or recc'ed my fic to someone, or listened to me whine about how HARD it all is, word-warred with me, beta'ed for me or told me I could do it - I love you and thank you.

If something I've written made you smile, or made your temperature rise, made you sad or made you think, then I'm doing something right. Thanks for being around this last year.

Feel free to share any of your own opinions if you have them!

Here is a few things in no particular order!

Signal boosts:

1. [ profile] pikasafire is hosting a not-in-November Nanowrimo! 50k in a month, and it doesn't even have to be ONE fic. I am going to try to finish all these WIPs I got lying around. We'll see how well I do with that, eh?

2. Over on dreamwidth there is a Really Awesome Looking Bandom Rec Meme going on. I read all the way to the bottom and got sad when I ran out of comments, so go rec stuff! There's a lotta Panic happening RN and you know what they say about variety? \o/?

3. [ profile] bigbang_mixup looks interesting! It's a reverse big bang where you can submit a fanmix and someone will write fic to it. Sadly, this one is all-fandom and it looks like no one from bandom is signed up as yet. I started thinking about a mix I'd like to make and wound up bunnying myself with a story. Oh my GOD I am NOT allowed to start any new fics. No no NO.

Has there ever been a Bandom Reverse Big Bang? That would be awesome. Someone should get on that. :D?

4. In my bbb procrastinations, I updated my Masterlist! Thanks everyone for your kind input in the poll, it was most helpful!

5. People are starting to talk about their BBB posting dates and art and mixes, but I haven't got mine yet /o\. Wave 2 has been so weird for me because it hasn't been a crazy big rush with me writing 20 000 new words in the last weeks before deadline. The fic itself hasn't really CHANGED that much in a while and I keep getting stuck in the "ugh, I don't like it, no one will read it whine whine whine" place. But hey, I am VERY excited for lots of new fic and so many of my favourite writers have written for this wave, so that's cool.

6. Anyone got time to look over a little 2k ficcy thing for me?

7. Because I am a sheeple, let's have this meme that everyone is doing:

If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach.
— Alfred Hitchcock

When I write a story, what do you immediately look for?

I know, I know, porn. Humour me?
ladyfoxxx: (Gee - WHAT IS THIS FUCKERY?)
I'm BACK Bitches!

So hey, guess what I did on Friday? I posted my [ profile] bandombigbang! At like, ass-o-clock in the morning because I HAD to get it out before the weekend and there was no way I was gonna have time to do it at work. I spent all of Friday being sleep deprived and slap happy but I'm so SO relieved to have it done. I mean, I know it could have used another few days polishing but W/E, W/E, gawd I'm just glad to have it FINISHED. I will have my EVENINGS BACK. (Seriously I was spending every spare moment I had working on that thing. I really cut it fine. Thank GOD for [ profile] mizubyte and [ profile] desfinado being awseome.)

Oh lord, I can't believe I actually finished it and posted it.

Wherein I blather about my bbb and how it came about. )

Anyhoo, if you like the sound of a great big pile of words that is basically me using time travel as an excuse to write lots of porn and dress skunkhawk!Frank in Killjoys garb, feel free to check out James Cameron Got It Wrong. It's like my love letter to the Terminator movies, right down to the ridiculous logic and plot holes. You have to love James Cameron for giving us those.

If you don't feel like reading the fic, dear GOD just treat yourself and check out the AMAZING art by [ profile] my_twistedshell which is GORGEOUS. I am IN LOVE with it and her. *_____* I also have three gorgeous mixes, that seriously nearly made me CRY, they're so good. Free music, anyone?

Also, I'm just going to leave this here:

Because, you know, if Frank were to run into his clone he would "embrace the double. And use it to DO THINGS." And he would be happy to have another person LIKE HIM around. And the rest of the band think this is all FABULOUS and would do the same. And Mikey thinks they should come up with a secret code RIGHT NOW because obviously this is going to happen and they need to have a PLAN.


The other cool part of getting my evenings back is that I can now catch up on all the awesome fic I haven't been able to read because I've been writing crazy timetravel fic. It's a NOT-REC list! Because I haven't actually read the fics yet! )
