little_tristan: (Breaking Bad Walt & Jesse)
For the ever patient [ profile] sydpenguinbunny, who popped up in part 2 needing closure, I have Breaking Bad Hold Me Close, the squick-free sequel to Touch Me/Touch Me Not.

Also by request, in the realm of the totally gen (Hai, I'm a stranger in these parts!), an Aunt Jenny fic, Strength. Warning for poignancy, sweetness, and death.

In an unrelated matter, just because I saw the episode the other day and was brutally clubbed about the head by Muse and her wicked roque mallet, have this slashy, h/c, Reid/Morgan Criminal Minds, Until It's Time For You To Go.

Still haven't seen all the episodes and can't really connect the story arcs (damn you, A&E, for not running them in order!), but this popped up yesterday.

The muse is like a genie. When it gets out of its bottle after a year and a half, it just goes everywhere.:)

Reid-centric gen, no squick, very very short.

Right now it feels like the weight of the world is off my shoulders. I could worry about a lot of stuff...but I don't. The important stuff is done. Mom is all taken care of, the finances are coming together, the old man seems to have settled on dying at home (because it's cheaper; I shit you not), Steve is still gone with a bonus of Russ finally discovering a theft and a lie that he cares about so Steve isn't allowed in the house again AT ALL (they're going to move his stuff to the shop down the street and he can pick it up there), and I've relieved myself of the obligation of publishing The Dancer this year. The pressure of having to write something I really didn't want, or even know how, to write just ruined the whole typing-untrue-but-pretty-words-and-showing-them-to-people thing completely. But that's over now.

Part of the result of all this relief is the three totally new fics I wrote and posted in two days. But I want to do MORE. RAWR! I'm a writing animal with no plots to dominate and devour. Except for one Breaking Bad, but I have to watch the series again to find the right canonical moment to--uh--insert it. Thank dog for Netflix streaming and the DVR.

So--somebody give me a prompt! Any fandom that I write in, even one of the ones with only one or two fics, and a plausible pairing. Or gen. I don't care. Just come and help me celebrate my return to the world of words!

Now I want to write a fic where Quinlan is slowly going blind. Not Catbread, but with a similar M/Q relationship history. Thoughts?

[Poll #1805467]
little_tristan: (Tanzer)
Snagged off [ profile] ratherastory when she wasn't looking.

Pick one of my fics, and I'll give you a detail that didn't make it into the fic. Background canon, deleted scenes, or a look into the future. My choice, but if you have a specific question you can ask it in your request.
little_tristan: (Riptide Geek On)
16. Summaries – Do you like them or hate them? How do you come up with them, if you use them?

I love writing summaries, for some stories. Some are just a line from the fic, but usually I try to say something about the story outside that in two lines or less. It's just fun. :)

Rest of the questions this way... )
little_tristan: (Writer Snail)
15. Warnings – What do you feel it most important to warn for, and what's the strangest thing you've warned for in a fic?

I personally feel that the only really valid reason for warning would be rape. Too many people are completely traumatized by the subject, and by the time it happens, it's too late to stop reading. (I don't like death warnings because that usually blows the ending, and while I do warn for violence and hate language, I secretly feel that the reader should just stop reading at the beginning of a violent act or a hateful diatribe if it's going to upset her that much.)

I don't think I've ever warned for anything stranger than that.

Rest of the questions this way... )
little_tristan: (Writer Snail)
14. Ratings – how high are you comfortable with going? Have you ever written higher? If you're comfortable with NC-17, have you ever been shocked by finding that the story you're writing is G-rated instead?

Sometimes I think I write beyond our standard rating system's ability to warn for, but when I write G-rated fic, it's on purpose. Usually I don't think about the rating when I'm writing, though, and I don't care what it's going to be. I just write the story and figure out how to label it later.

Rest of the questions this way... )
little_tristan: (Writer Snail)
13. Do you prefer canon or fanon when you write? Has writing fanfic for a fandom changed the way you see some or even all of the original source material?

In most of my fandoms, I seem to write a mix of both. I like canon because, well, if I didn't, I wouldn't be writing that show. But fanon is necessary for the things that canon leaves out, and I like adopting other people's ideas on things like hobbies and the names of distant relatives. It puts us all back on the same page.

Writing fic has absolutely influenced my view on the material. At least so far as finding evidence for a pairing and, after writing it a bit, beginning to see everything in the source material point that way. Sometimes canon plants the seed, and sometimes fanon does. But I always go to canon to back it up.

Rest of the questions this way... )
little_tristan: (Riptide OT3)
12. Have you ever attempted an "adaptation" fic of a favorite book or movie but set in a different fandom?

No, but I intend to. I saw a movie once about three men who were lovers and it didn't end the way I expected it to. It was, in fact, a rather unpleasant story. Some day I'm going to write a Riptide version where they live happily ever after.

Rest of the questions this way... )
little_tristan: (Riptide Cody and Murray Porn)
11. Genre – do you prefer certain genres of fic when you're writing? What kind do you tend to write most?

Well, obviously I write a lot of slash, if that's what you mean. And it tends to be rather violent h/c, unless I'm in the mood for romance. (You, in the back row--no laughing! I can so be romantic!)

Rest of the questions this way... )
little_tristan: (Firefly Jayne)
Title: Honoring Thieves
Word Count: 2,475
Genre/Rating: Gen/PG
Characters: Jane, Vera, various OCs
Notes/Warnings: Inspired by Marian Call's Vera Flew the Coop. After writing this fic, I found a video where she explains that Vera is a folk hero in her version of the Firefly 'verse, celebrated in story and song. (Not unlike the Hero of Canton himself.) But I like my version, so here it is.
Summary: How Jayne met (the first) Vera.

10. Pairings – Have you ever gone outside your comfort zone and written a pairing you liked, but found you couldn't write, or a pairing you didn't like, and found you could?

Have I ever written a pairing that I liked but couldn't write? That sort of makes my head hurt. (If I wrote it, then I could write it. If I couldn't write it, then I didn't...) Probably the only applicable fic in my canon is a Star Trek Reboot drabble that was written for an comment fic challenge. The requester wanted Kirk/Spock, which I don't dislike. I just think that Spock/Uhura is canon, and Kirk/McCoy makes more sense. But it wasn't that difficult, and I rather liked the result, even if I never went there again.

Rest of the questions this way... )
little_tristan: (Writer Snail)
9. Pairings – For each of the fandoms from day two, what are your three favorite pairings to write?

Not all of my fandoms have 3 pairings, but let's see what we can do:

1. Riptide: Murray/Quinlan, Murray/Cody/Nick, Cody/Nick
2. Star Trek Reboot: Scotty/Chekov, Kirk/McCoy. Spock/Uhura
3. Emergency! (crossed with Riptide only): Johnny/Murray, Roy/Joanne
4. The Losers: Cougar/Jensen
5. The Sentinel: Jim/Blair
6. It: Richie/Eddie
7. Supernatural: Sam and Dean (gen)
Rest of the questions this way... )
little_tristan: (Riptide Murray's PI License)
8. Do you write OCs? And if so, what do you do to make certain they're not Mary Sues, and if not, explain your thoughts on OCs.

All of my Riptide series (and most of the stand-alone fics) have OCs, because there are so few canon characters to work with. They need neighbors and clients and doctors and such. Generally, the OCs don't have large enough roles to become Mary Sues. If they are that prominent, I just make sure they aren't filling a purpose best left to a canon character, like solving a mystery or pulling off a rescue. And they never (so far as I can remember) get to climb up on a high horse and rebuke/lecture/correct a canon character. Basically, the OC isn't the main character. (I admit I came close to blowing that in Murray's True Love, which was a very early fic. I hadn't even heard of Mary Sue, in fact. But she still managed to not be the entire focus of the story, and certainly wasn't the hero.)

Rest of the questions this way... )
little_tristan: (Writer Snail)
7. Have you ever had a fic change your opinion of a character?

I've definitely developed and evolved my feelings toward characters through writing them, like Lieutenant Quinlan who went from enemy to half-hearted friend to half of one of my favorite pairings. But if it means gaining insight from reading other fics, I don't think so. I've learned about them and added to my person store of fanon, but I don't think that counts as a changed opinion.

Rest of the questions this way... )
little_tristan: (Writer Snail)
6. When you write, do you prefer writing male or female characters?

Male characters seem to come more easily, but I'm practicing my females and hope they're improving. Sadly, only a couple of my fandoms provide good canon women, and OCs have to be carefully contained.

Rest of the questions this way... )
