So I have all these plot bunnies and fics I should be working on - fics I even have outlined - but writing just has not been coming to me lately. I will open up MS Word and stare at what I have written already - and nothing more will come.
So instead of trying to force the issue, I've decided to take a little break from any kind of serious writing. I'm probably going to try to write some crack or PWP... but that is still a big maybe. So for now my extent of participation in the ST fandom is going to be reading/commenting.
Well, that's about it, I guess. I hope I get over this writer's block soon, but my muse is a fickle master.
So a couple friends of mine are trying to get me into Magic the Gathering - and succeeding. My one friend has been letting me use one of his decks, but I think I'm going to go to the comic store tomorrow and start pulling together my own.
Any suggestions/comments? I'm thinking about a combo white/blue... nontraditional, I know, but I like the idea of it. I guess we will see once I start playing with it.
And as always, I appreciate mutual geeking out. I'm kind of excited, so even just a comment of: "Oh, I play Magic too" will make me super happy. ^^
Please humor me. :-)
If you were asked to pick one scene, one shot, one detail, one moment of some kind out of all the things I've written and say "This, for whatever reason, I remember. This is something that struck home with me, that I wanted to keep", what would it be?

• Make a post (public, friends locked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
• If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.
• Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ so that the holiday joy will spread.
• Surf around your friends list (or friends friends, or just random journals, or holiday_wishes/wish_list) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:
If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true! Sometimes someone's trash is anothers treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.
You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.
- Drabble/fic pwp featuring Spock/Kirk/McCoy with bottom!Kirk. (check - the wonderful juliench1 fulfilled my wish here: http://juliench1.livejournal.com/17805.
html?view=48525#t48525 . Go read it because it is amazing.)
- A new icon. Maybe with bb!Jim?
- Comments on my K/S Archive fics (Does anyone actually read there?)
- Recs for hot bottom!Jim fics or art
5. Art/comic for Vulcan Catnip. (Maybe the spanking scene? But I would take anything...)
6. Art/comic for The Learning Curvie. (Collared!Jim in leather pants. Please?)
7. Art/comic for any of my other fics...
8-10. Livejournal paid account (check - you know who you are. Thanks again - I really, really appreciate it.)
Also- if you are on my flist and you have done this meme, could you leave me a link to it? Thanks :)
Hello to my wonderful flist (once again)...
So the lovely jadecorpsebride is coordinating a Star Trek Holiday Card Exchange here: http://jadecorpsebride.livejournal.com/
All comments are screened, and you don't have to use your real name, so privacy is assured. It sounds like it could be really fun if a lot of people sign up - and what could be better than receiving a Star Trek-themed holiday card? You can opt for SFW or NSFW and pick your pairing... And I definitely encourage everyone to sign up!
(Do I have to bribe you with internet cookies?)
Thanks. And happy holidays!
So does anyone have any good recs for Star Trek fanart or comics? I prefer comics, because they are a mix of fic and art - but good fanart is always welcome.
Also, I remember reading something about a ST Art Meme? Does anyone have a link?
I kind of wants to ask for art for a couple of my fics...
My dear flist,
I've had AIM forever (or so it seems), but I never really got around to using it. Does anyone want to exchange usernames to chat about fic? I'm finding that it actually helps motivate me to write more...
Which is good, because I have quite a few things in the works right now. In order of priority: My ks_advent fic is nearly done (I hope) and will definitely be posted by my assigned day (December 9th, btw). Also, ens_sarik has so graciously agreed to co-author the evil!Sarek Harlequin fic with me, so we have been working on outlining that fic and where it will be going. I'm also working on an extended version of 'Kisses' (adding both plot *and* pr0n).
Anyway, back to the AIM - my username is the same - putigress2012. You can comment on this entry or send me a PM with your username if you want to chat. I'm not shy - I will add you to my buddy list. ^^
Thanks for reading my babbles...
So back in August I anonymously filled this prompt at the kink meme: http://community.livejournal.com/
It is all very Harlequin, but it keeps nagging at me. What came before? What happens after? Happy ending? Sad, angsty ending? Hmm...
( My Vulcan Harlequin (Unfinished) Fic... )
So, my wonderful flist - I guess my first question would be, do you think I should try more, or should I just post as is? (Or maybe I should duck my head in shame at the over-dramatics, and just pretend I never un-anoned...)
Second - would anyone be interesting in co-authoring? Or round-robining? I've always wanted to try that... So please let me know if you are at all intrigued by such a prospect. ^^
It's a brand new comm, open to fic with either Kirk or Spock as the bottom. They can be paired together or with any other male character. So if you have any fic that fits those criteria, this would be the time to post. ^^
So I was thrilled today when I found out that there is now a Kirk/McCoy Archive: http://www.kmarchive.net/index.php
We have one for K/S, why not for K/M? I love both of these pairs, though my writing definitely seems to favor K/S... But I will be uploading my Kirk/McCoy fics to the archive, and I encourage anyone on my flist who writes this pairing to do the same. ^^
Okay flist - I would appreciate any comments/suggestions you may have concerning some recent questions of mine...
First: I've been going through my lj and ffnet accounts, reading my old fics and deciding which ones to update to the K/S Archive. I would eventually like to get all my K/S fics posted there, but... well, I'm really not happy with some of them. I don't want to delete them from lj or ffnet because I hate when a story I like disappears, and just because I'm not happy with the fic doesn't mean there aren't still a few people that like it... what do you think?
Second: There are some fics that I like, but that as I re-read them I think I could edit and significantly improve them. But again, I'm not really sure about how my readers would take that. My primary concerns are With Tears and Kisses, both of which have partially finished edits on my hard drive. They are longer and better and just... do you think I should completely delete the old versions, or just update the new versions with an A/N about them being better edits of old fic? I think that's what I'm going to do for lj (I don't really mind keeping old things on here), but with ffnet I think they have a rule against the same fic being posted twice...
Third (and last): I have so many fics that I want to continue/write sequels to, but I keep getting distracted by new prompts and ideas... I currently have two WIPs on the kink meme, one which I have hit a dead end on and one that I'm semi-happy with but know needs a lot of editing. I also signed up to write a fic for the K/S Advent Calendar. Does anyone on my flist want to volunteer beta services to kick my ass and start getting things done? I would really appreciate it. ^^
Thanks for reading (if you did). Again, I would appreciate any comments or suggestions.
I had totally forgotten about my Superman/Batman and Clex kick a few months back. I have a few fics that I really like, but I have no idea where I should post them.
They are mostly Bruce/Clark and Lex/Clark slash...
Okay, so I was looking through my fics today, and I realized that I have now posted 39 Star Trek fics...
I have four more WIPs left, and then I'm going to start working on sequels and alternate endings and new fics and anything I want to write. I just feel bad leaving my faithful readers hanging for so long on some of these.
So, there's Green - A State of Mind. Link - http://community.livejournal.com/
Kirk/Spock, Kirk/other. Kirk sleeps with one of the Vulcan boys who taunted Spock when they were children. Spock finds out about it, but tries to deal with it logically. It doesn't work, or Kirk sees through him anyway. (The Kirk/Spock should come after the pair is discovered, though; please no cheating.)
Logical Possessiveness. Link - http://community.livejournal.com/
Kirk starts seeing someone and Spock has a bad reaction (jealous!) - tries to keep them apart, etc and Kirk has no idea why Spock is acting the way he is
Cheater, Cheater. Link - http://community.livejournal.com/
I'm surprised this hasn't been done before, but I've seen some fics with Kirk in a supposedly monogamous relationship but giving into temptation. I want a fic where he is cheated on instead. Bonus points if it is Spock and he doesn't have a logical reason.
And Vulcan Seduction, of which part 1/2 has been posted on my lj.
However, I'm having some trouble with inspiration for these fics. So I would greatly appreciate it if some people would be gracious enough to read what I have done so far, tell me which one you like best, and give some suggestions for where you would like things to go. My muse is dying...And I want to revive it.
Thanks so much for anyone who took the time to read this. ^^
