ladyfoxxx: Patrick is adorable (Patrick is a sweetheart)
So let's see what happens if I just pretend it hasn't been MONTHS since my last post and I just post a meme because it sounds fun and [personal profile] melusina told me to.


Give me a link or title to one of my fics (any 'verse/any fandom), and I'll give you a detail that didn't make it into the fic - it could be background canon, deleted material (if I have it), a look into the future - or ask me a question about inspiration, the writing process, research.

Most of my fic can be found here: My AO3 Works. I really should update my LJ/DW masterlist sometime...


*sound of crickets chirping*

Let's just pretend I've been posting regularly, shall we?

So some folk were talking about fannish origins on Twitter and it got me thinking, I don't know if I've ever really shared my origin story in any real deapth and it might actually be a fun thing to do. So, here it is.

It all began with the X-Files )

The land of RPS )

the move to LJ )

So that's my Fannish Origin Story. What's yours?
ladyfoxxx: (fob the hiatus is over)
Hey look - my first DW crosspost! Go me! (I sure hope this works now). I actually started this post a while ago by my internet has been bodgy so here are some now-out-of-date statistics!

Top Ten Fics on AO3 meme )

MEME NUMBER TWO! Just because I feel like it,

Give me a title in comments and I tell you the story that would go with it. Note: you can specify a character or pairing too!

I will probably spin you a notfic of some kind.

In other news I got a story in for this year's [community profile] bandombigbang wave one. Woohoo! I totally decided to write it 2 weeks before draft deadline and just burned out a whole bunch of words that I didn't even read back before I sent it in (my poor poor artist and/or mixer). It's so ridiculous but I kind of love the idea, so I just need to get it finished and polished up. Not that I'm doing memes to procrastinate or anything... I wouldn't do that, right? *adjusts halo*
ladyfoxxx: (Frank FACEPALM)
Apparently I'm doing this one too! Gakked from [ profile] eledhwenlin and [ profile] turps33

1. genderswap
2. bodyswap
3. drunk!fic
4. huddling for warmth
5. pretending to be married
6. secretly a virgin
7. amnesia
8. cross-dressing
9. forced to share a bed
10. truth or dare
11. historical AU
12. accidental-baby-acquisition
13. apocalypse fic
14. telepathy
15. High School / College AU

Give me a fandom/pairing, and I'll tell you something. Fandoms applicable: bandom

ETA - "Pairing" doesn't need to be only two. Can the threesomes/moresomes. Just sayin'.

Reply will likely be notfic and very likely be highly questionable in content.
ladyfoxxx: (killjoys - KISS ME YOU ANIMAL)
You know when you get that first idea for a fic, all shiny and exciting and you immediately latch onto ONE scene or ONE moment that you desperately want to write? Sometimes you write thousands of words JUST so you can write that ONE scene or moment?

Well that's what happens to me, anyway. OFTEN. So I did a quick poll earlier on Twitter and it appears I am not alone in this. And now I am desperately interested to know what everyone else's key scenes/moments in fic are.

So! Tell me. What was that scene you wanted to write in that particular fic? Did it come out the way you thought it would? Did it end up being a key scene, or just another scene? Was it a scene a lot of people commented on? Did you (GASP) need to cut the scene out of the fic in the end? ;___;

I'll go first! )

OKAY NOW, your turn! Tell me about your key scenes! Comment below or repost to your journal so people can ask you about specific fics!

Is there a particular fic of mine that you'd like to know what my That One Thing scene was? Ask me! (my masterlist is here)

Is there a shiny new plot bunny on your horizon with a key scene you want to write? Tell me!

Talk to meeeee….
ladyfoxxx: (Default)
It's nearly 11pm and I'm still at work! Please help me to not stab people by asking me questions!


1 - Your current OTP

I am still not seeing a light at the end of the work tunnel, but BY GOD I am going to continue to have some kind of fannish presence. I'll do a life post SOMETIME, I promise, but right now I just want to do this top 10 AO3 fics meme I am seeing around because it interests the shit out of me.

So the idea is to sort your fics posted on AO3 by hit count, post the top ten and try to analyse your results. And GO.

1. James Cameron Got It Wrong 3187
Higher count than any other by almost DOUBLE. Yeah it's a big bang and a popular pairing (Frank/ Gerard) with bonus crazy threesomes (Frank/Frank/Gerard) but STILL. It blows me away that this crazy fic has been read so many times. YOU GUYSS. <3

2. Price Of Pretty 1634
I find it HILARIOUS that this is number two. 1600 hits and ZERO comments and mostly guest kudos? WHO ARE ALL YOU PEOPLE READING THIS FIC? You don't want people to know about your thing for spanking? Is that it? I DON'T UNDERSTAND. Well far be it for me to judge. GO YOU GOOD LURKERS. MORE POWER TO YOU.

3. Reaching Through The Mirror 1292
Gerard/Gerard prequel from the same verse as James Cameron so I guess that makes sense. But I love that my top three basically goes: SELFCEST THREESOME, SPANKING and SELFCEST. /o\ Go me.

4. Tell Me Something True 1178
A Mikey/Ray in position 4! You guys, you have NO IDEA how much this pleases me. I know it's probably mostly traffic via James Cameron since they are in the same 'verse but I STILL adore that a Mikey/Ray is doing so well. LOVE THIS PAIRING.

5. Feeling A Moment 1020
Frank/Gerard podfic co-op with [ profile] podklb - I am not really sure why this one is up so high, probably because of the podfic because klb is such an awesome reader. Also NO SEX IN THIS ONE. WHAAAT.

6. No Experience Necessary 999 (somebody click now!)
My very first bigbang! The pizza 'verse. My first long trying-to-have-a-plot bandom fic with HS Frank/Gerard and Mikey/Ray I love it and want to cradle it to my bosom and I'm so happy it's still getting read.

7. Against The Wall 996
Oooh it's a tight race between positions 6 and 7! More D/s in the BDSM dom!Frankie verse from Price of Pretty. I guess people like BDSM fic?

8. Emergency Contact 948
I am ASTOUNDED to see this one in the top ten. When I first posted this fic it had very low views, but I think it had something of a renaissance when [ profile] pennyplainknits podficced it and suddenly it climbed the list. Also YAY because Pete/Patrick/Mikey is a threesome I will ALWAYS love and there will never be enough of.

9. Ass-Kickin' Chick Music 886
My [ profile] bandomreversebb fic! Only very recently posted always-a-girl!Gerard/always-a-girl!Frank, I'm so chuffed it made the list. I didn't think it would get much readership being femmeslash and yet... wow! Interestingly the LJ version of this fic seemed to get less traffic than the AO3 version, so it's possible that people's reading habits are changing?

10. In Production 854
Awwww I am so glad this one made the list! My second ever big bang, the movie AU of my HEART that was Gerard/Brian, Pete/Patrick, Bob/Ryan so it was never going to be a fandom favourite, but I'm VERY stoked it's made the top 10.

Honorable mentions: More BDSM fic at number 11, Waycest snowballing threesome came in at number 12 and my other-fandom Misfits selfcest fic at Number 13. WEIRD, you guys, WEIRD.

What does this MEAN? I... don't really know. People tend to read other fics if they are in a series? People like self cest? People like BDSM? People like PORN? People are less likely to comment on epic porn-fests about spanking?

ladyfoxxx: (Ray and Frank cracking up)
So [ profile] mizubyte did a voice post of her doing an American Accent quiz where you answer questions about your pronunciation and the quiz gods try to figure out where you are from. Obviously I am not American, but the pull of the quiz was too much, so I decided to do it anyway, just to see what might happen.

Direct link here if the embed below isn't working:

Accentquiz by ladyfoxxx

So apparently when I try to do quizzes that are not designed for non-Americans when I have just woken up I spend most of my time saying "how could those two words EVER sound the same?" And then I burst into hysterical laughter when I find out my quiz result.

No really, I found my quiz result to be VERY VERY FUNNY. So if you want to skip forwards to where I start to make sense again that is at around 06:10. And if after reading these disclaimers you still decide to listen to this, um, sorry?

Questions and ridiculousness beneath the cut )

I am maybe a little ridiculous. Also I am enjoying voice posts way too much so if you have any questions or things you would like me to say or read maybe leave them in the comments and if I get enough I'll do another voice post! Because voice posts are fun!
ladyfoxxx: (Default)
Aahahahaa, okay so we were talking on Twitter about feedback; kudos vs comments and how sometimes you love a story A LOT and really WANT to comment, but don't and then never do and I discovered I'm not the only person who psyches themselves out of commenting like that. So here, have THE GUILT MEME:

We've all done it. That fic that you've read eleventy billion times and never actually commented on. Or maybe you only read it once but it was so good - SO fucking good that you just didn't know how to EXPRESS how good it was so you never actually commented, or you read it on your e-reader and never went back to comment, or you went back to comment and wound up re-reading it and STILL didn't comment, or it's been around forever and you kind of let yourself off the hook without commenting because there were ALREADY so many comments, surely the writer knows it's awesome, right?

Consider this meme a confessional. WHAT FICS ARE THEY?

The fics I never commented on and I SHOULD HAVE )

OKAY, NOW YOU. Let's try and make this a meme!

Speak freely, nothing will get held against you. This doesn't mean you have to go leave comments NOW, like, unless you WANT TO, that's not the point. The point is, CONFESS.

P.S. It's kind of disheartening how every single one of these links was readily available in my browser history. THAT'S how often I reread these. /o\
ladyfoxxx: (Frankie guitar sex)
Because it's all over my flist and I need an excuse to post something but I don't have time to make a real post about how my life right now is all work & modding brbb with the occasional tweet to prove I'm not dead!

1. Go to page 77 (or 7) of your current ms.
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written.
4. Tag 7 other authors. I don't tag for these things, but everyone should do this. Show me what you're writing!

This is the story that was my Nano, that if all goes well will be my first wave BBB. I checked page 77 first but it was boring, so you get page 7 instead.

a sneaky peek )
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!
ladyfoxxx: (Frank and Ray are awesome)
I know I'm crap, I owe comments like woah, but work is EVIL, please give me a distraction?

Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you between one and three sentences from that story.

I can totally commit to one-to-three sentences, right?
ladyfoxxx: (Ray and Frank cracking up)
ETA - Okay so apparently I am unlocking this?

So it appears that the thing that is going to make me make an LJ post after being a slack-ass slacker* who doesn't update much lately is this bandom voice post meme that is all over my flist right now.

If you haven't done it yet YOU SHOULD DO IT! \o/?

The Questions:
1. What's your username and is there a story behind it?
2. Where are you from and where do you live now?
3. What are you wearing? Yes, I am hitting on you.
4. How long have you been in bandom? How did you get into it?
5. Which bands are your favorites?
6. Which band members are your favorites?
7. Have you seen any of them in concert? Any fun stories or memories to share?
8. Do you have an OTP? What is it, and why do you love it?
9. What story do you wish someone would write?
10. Are you working on something for bandom right now? Tell us a little bit about it.
11. You've got fic open somewhere on your computer right now, don't lie. So go to one of your open tabs or word documents or whatever, and read us a couple of lines.
12. Say these words: Iero, haberdashery, LOLcat, flist, dirigible, halcyon, nemesis, ephemeral, languorous

Apologies in advance for my snottyness, I have a mild cold. Go ahead, make fun of my (rather muddled) accent. Also, my apologies to [ profile] brooklinegirl for getting my snot all over the first paragraph or so of her most awesome story.

I haven't posted in forever, and I'm getting into that funk where it's getting harder and harder to make a post because it's been so long since I've made a post. So I'll try to break the cycle with this timestamp, the only one I've managed to finish since work got crazy and tired me out and drained me of all writing ability.

I honestly have THOUGHTS about the other timestamp prompts, I just can't seem to put them into words. I'm sorry I am the slowest human being (especially for not being able to write the pizza'verse one for [ profile] slashxyouxup yet. :( I'm sorry.) Hopefully I can shake my muse back to life soon.

ETA - Podfic now available by [ profile] knight_tracer

about 1.5k of Timetravelverse - 2005 Frank, 5 years after he returns )
ladyfoxxx: (Ray beams)
Hey so did everyone see our boys did last night's show in costume?

The Toropire:


In ADDITION to this (as if this wasn't ALREADY enough), I woke up this morning to THIS TWEET from Ray:


In other news, I am still banging away at fills for The Timestamp Meme. If you requested something, and I haven't posted a fill yet, I am ON IT, it's just taking me a million years a little longer than I expected because I keep writing actual STORIES, instead of the notfic I planned.

Fills so far! )

I am also working on my [ profile] moldypitsandall fic, and laughing my way through [ profile] mizubyte's beta notes. I squicked her. Twice.

Hi F-list! Work is nuts! Delicious has broken all the tags with a "/" in them, which is maybe kind of a problem in a fandom that's mostly 'slash', but that's okay because MCR are ridiculous costume-wearing cupcakes.

ladyfoxxx: (killjoys - KISS ME YOU ANIMAL)
Work is in a lull, I'm feeling a bit antsy, and I haven't done this one in an age - timestamp meme!

Choose one of my fics and give me a timestamp - e.g. two weeks before or five years later - and I'll write you a comment fic notfic* telling you what happened.

My up-to-date Masterlist is here


*Changed this because history has proven that I can't write commentfic.
ladyfoxxx: (Killjoys - gee is beautiful and i'll say)
So this one has been popping up all over my f-list and I wasn't going to do it, then I realised it was ANONYMOUS and somehow that makes it easier. IDK. There is a reason I like [ profile] anon_lovefest so much. It's easier if you don't know it's me, okay? I'm SHY.


My thread is here.

And now I can go anonymously fangirl and drool at y'all. Like the creeper I am.
ladyfoxxx: (Ray smiles like the sun)
Hi I'm crap! Here is a short list of why:

1. New job where I share a room cuts back on my internet time
2. I am addicted to Twitter and have been spending a lot of time there, since 140 characters seems to be about the level of commitment I can handle right now.
3. I am madly trying to write my [ profile] bandombigbang so that I have some kind of draft in for the 30 April deadline. A week ago I had 6k. I now have just over 20k (\o/?) but I still need an ending. Of course once I have an ending I will need a TITLE and a SUMMARY and OMG HATE HATE those two things. /end whinge


ASK ME HOW MUCH I WANT TO HAVE SEX WITH HIM RIGHT NOW. GO ON ASK ME. Hint: A LOT. [ profile] kopperblaze is the best because she keeps slipping me links to photos of Ray being adorable/a hotass.

Also, here is a meme! [ profile] piratesunk was looking for a title for a fic earlier and I made a bunch of really stupid suggestions, which made me think this one might be a bit of fun. Yoinked from [ profile] romanticalgirl

Give me a title in comments and I tell you* the story that would go with it.

(*Tell you = summarise. Because I need to practice my summaries, naturally!)

ladyfoxxx: (Frank FACEPALM)
[ profile] pikasafire tagged me for this meme and I think I need to send the winged monkeys after her.


Post your very first fanfiction. Don't edit anything out. Leave in all the bad spelling, terrible grammar and painful summary.

Tag five other people. Have fun!

Fun. FUN? Seriously you guys, this is worse than I thought. I originally thought "Oh wow, at least it's not in first person!" and then I went and FOUND it (still on gossamer OH MY GOD.) And then I discover not only is it actually MOSTLY in first person it is also... wait for it... SONG FIC.


I can't believe I'm posting this here where you can all see it )

Dear lord, that was MORTIFYING. Really. I think the SG stuff is less embarrassing.

I'm not sure if you all know but [ profile] b_dsaint is on a self imposed LJ ban for lent, but since [ profile] pikasafire fingered her for this too, she's graciously allowed me to bare her soul on her behalf. So BEHOLD!

Miz's first fanfic. (It's Newsies, in case you were wondering.)

I tag [ profile] villiagegreen, [ profile] piratesunk, [ profile] brooklinegirl, [ profile] turps33 and [ profile] amproof. And ANYONE ELSE WHO WANTS TO PLAY. I AM CURIOUS, OKAY? Don't make me stand here in shame alone.

Now if we could all please forget everything you've just read. Thanks? Bye.
ladyfoxxx: (Frankie is actually a zombie)
So I spent the day curled up on the couch with my doona (duvet or comforter to you foreigners) and trying not to cough. My body has SUCH a sick sense of humour to be doing this NOW.

But the good news is! I have a [ profile] bebunny! She's crashing here tonight, then tomorrow we're setting off with [ profile] xclusiveantonym for Manchester where we'll meet up with [ profile] dancinbutterfly and [ profile] krisipanics to see those crazy Chimerical Romances again. And again on Saturday in Nottingham with [ profile] dancinbutterfly because I am INSANE.

So, body, no time to get SICK now! OKAY? I am taking ALL the vitamin C.

In the meantime - have a meme!

Post the names of all the files in your WIP folder, regardless of how non-descriptive or ridiculous. Feel free to ask about anything and I'll tell you the premise or paste you a tidbit for any of these.

it stopped being a good idea pretty much straight away

Okay, so my filenames aren't all that descriptive, I am wavering as to whether to note the pairings too, or at least the verses since a bunch of them appear to be sequels. Let me know if there's any that sound interesting.
