unavoidedcrisis: girl lying on the ground with playing cards scattered over her (Default)
Was going to do a link-spam of every thing I've written this year, but I decided that... No, I won't do that :D

Here's just a quick breakdown:

Total words written+posted: 104,000 (give or take a couple. I tend to round to the nearest 10)
Number of fics posted: 18
Fandoms Represented: 2 (def going to try to write some more next year)
Big Bangs Posted: 4
Total words written+posted for big bangs: 89,900 (I am in loooooove with big bangs. ALL THE BIG BANGS)
Total # of fics written for porn comment memes & # of words: 8&5,550


And though it makes me a little queasy, here's a link to the thing I wrote that I like the best. I wavered; there's 2 that I like, but this one wins on account of banter. Also, it's shorter, so anyone who wants to read it will be tortured a little less.

The Secret Waiter Job, written for AU Big Bang. Leverage Restaurant AU, Eliot/Hardison, warnings for strong language, lots of knives, and spanking. 23k, rated R.

Leverage is the hot, exciting place on the restaurant scene these days, thanks to its hot, exciting executive chef, Eliot Spencer. New hire Alec Hardison is a mild mannered, smooth talking waiter by night and a double-life-living, top secret culinary school student by day. Together, they'll cook up some sizzling dishes... both in and out of the kitchen.


So basically, if it's not a big bang or Porn Battle, I won't write it. >.< Going to expand my ficcing horizons in 2012. More fandoms, more writing for fun and pleasure, more WORDS. Yes, I signed up to "get my words out". We'll see how that goes. :D

Love and Other Supervillains

By sunspot.
With artwork by sian1359.

Beta'd by [livejournal.com profile] maskedfangirl, [livejournal.com profile] cherie_morte, and Sam.



Fandom: Leverage
Pairing: Eliot/Hardison, Hardison/Parker, Nate/Sophie
Rating: R (adults only)
Word Count: 45,200 in 6, all new, never-before-seen issues!
Warnings: character deaths, swearing.
Author's Notes: Here, may contain spoilers for story. Written for [livejournal.com profile] polybigbang 2010.



When Cityopolis is in trouble, it calls the best hero in town: Super Duper Man. When Super Duper Man is in trouble, it's up to his super duper roommate, Hardison, and their super duper dog to help him out. But when the trouble is bigger and badder than Cityopolis has ever seen, and she's wearing a tight red dress and matching killer heels, it seems like it's going to be the end for the whole city for sure. But there shouldn't be anything to worry about. After all, no one is crazy enough to actually destroy the whole planet... Right?

Have you ever been about to kick some zombie ass, then you turn on your portable music playing device and then your headphones are all 'have some Michelle Branch!' or 'wouldn't some Sufjan Stevens soothe you to sleep?' and you're like, NO DAMMIT, there's ass-kickery to be had!

Well now I will try to fix you!

And this mix comes at a great time too, because it just so happens I posted a story about zombies today.

Title: The Waiting Job
Fandom: Leverage
Pairing: none specifically but hints of Nate/Sophie and Eliot/Hardison/Parker
Rating: 13+
Word Count: ~11,700
Warnings: some violence, some swearing.

Summary: They're out of food, and someone's going to have to go out to get more before they die. They have no choice at this point. Hopefully the zombies will see it that way and not give them a hard time.

So when I'm reading fic, but especially when I am reading a sex scene, the number one thing that ruins it for me is one tiny little typo. There are probably a hundred things that make it awkward for me, but the top of the list thing is seeing the word 'me' in dialogue when the writer meant to write 'my'. It just sounds so ... Scottish? Jamaican? Hilarious?

Writing in any sort of dialect weirds me out. I can usually hear it in my head, I don't need to read it on paper. Especially if the character is not Scottish or Jamaican. It is not sexy for me. It gives me a bad case of the giggles. I know it's a common typo. I do it sometimes. Cue the giggles.

In other 'porn is ruined forever' news, I tried my hand at some things for Porn Battle Ten this past week. I apologize sincerely.

under here for links )

So that's what I've been doing. Still not comfortable writing smut. I feel like a tiny awkward human when I try.

We officially adopted Abby yesterday. She makes a lot of noise by just existing. She's also twice as big as I remember her.

Watched all of the cartoon series 'Archer' with Katie the day before last. It's kind of the most hilarious thing ever. I mean, it's terribly crude and vaguely offensive, but let's be honest, I have bad taste. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Smoked today out of the water with 1722/1500. Hah! And I only claimed I was going to be a milk vampire once. Brendan, the sweet little dumpling he is, has promised me 1 kidnapping of my choice if I successfully complete my 1500 words a day. That's a pretty sweet deal, guys.

Also managed to get around to posting a bunch of stuff to my writing journal. Going to link it here in case anyone is interested. Most of it's too short to actually be considered fic, but you get the idea.

Supernatural and Leverage fic beyond the jump )

Look Ma! New fandom! I'm branching out! *does tree impression*

It's 4 am and I don't know why I'm awake and [livejournal.com profile] scorpiod01 is making up lies about me and some ducks AND I FEEL LIKE I'M TAKING CRAZY PILLS. So that's it for me tonight, intertube. I promise I'll behave better tomorrow.

JULY

ATTENTION ALL UNMOTIVATED WRITERS ON MY FLIST.


So I looked at my calendar the other day and realized I have looming deadlines for some writing pieces, and somehow July is almost upon us and oh yeah, I have no drive to do anything.

Out of the blue and clearly as an answer to my unspoken prayers, one of my favourite Nanowrimo friends messages me and asks if I would be interested in a writing exercise.

Thus I present for your consideration!

*drumroll*


Write Until We Die July


Now of course, we don't actually want anyone to die, but the idea is to write 1500 words a day (any project welcome! Even things you've already started. Even if you just want to write in your LJ!), every day, for the month of July.

It's that easy.

Support, words wars, good-natured shouting and extra heapings of fun to be found every day from friends and strangers alike.

No LJ community for this, it is going to be mostly AIM based (weird right, but I guess that's how we roll), and you can ping me any time for an update or an invite to the current chat. You'll get me at unavoidedcrisis ;)

Also, I'll be spamming the hell out of you with my daily progress meter for all of July. HAAAAY.

The only thing we request is respect, guys. That means no drama, no starting shit, no fandom wank. Many participants a) have different tastes/backgrounds/triggers/politics/races/religions/preferences, b) are not part of fandom and don't want to hear about it and c) are really nice people who don't need headaches. Just like all of us, right?

It's about the writing guys, and we're all in this together *I would put an HSM gif here if I had one, but I don't so imagine the Zefron for me, k?*

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] character_bleed for the banner because she thinks I am incapable of making my own. SEE WHAT I DID THERE.

And Grace Will Lead Me Home

by [livejournal.com profile] epiphanyx7 (a.k.a. epiphanyx7) and [livejournal.com profile] unavoidedcrisis (a.k.a. sunspot)
with illustrations by [livejournal.com profile] sleepwalker1015 
(and also epiphanyx7 kinda)

beta'd by [livejournal.com profile] character_bleed 

Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: R (adults only)
Length: 45 000 words in 5 parts.
Warnings: Virgin sacrifices, reincarnation, body transformations, epic levels of manpain all over the place, shouting, sex, language, violence, mildly disturbing themes, puppies, ice cream, rainbows, blasphemy, semi-graphic torture, character death, het, slash, angst, goldfish, consensual fraternal incest.
Pairings: Gabriel/Sam/Castiel/Dean; (in all combinations).



In order to stop the apocalypse, Dean kills Lucifer -- saving the world, and dying in the process. But Dean's journey is far from over -- the pact he made with Lilith for his soul did not end when an angel pulled him from depths of hell.

After the apocalypse, Castiel and Sam are left to pick up the shattered pieces of themselves. In the wake of Dean's death, things are not as easy as they used to be. Castiel finds himself trapped on Earth, with no hope of returning to the only home he's ever had, while Sam tries to remember who he is without his brother.

Man and angel have nothing in common, aside from their mutual bonds to a man now dead and a future they must forge together, now that the hands of fate have released them. And they will find a purpose, find out who they are, and more importantly, will find a reason to keep going... even in the face of danger, even with the knowledge with every passing second, Sam is closer to the end of his life.

And when he is gone, Castiel will be alone. Forever.

We didn't bring our camera to Celtfest, but I wish we had so I could regale you all with pictures of sheep. Seriously. Is there a cuter animal in the world? I haven't met it yet. We watched the herding demos and sure, border collies are cute but I'm all about the sheep. And they go 'baa'. I can dig it.

We also watched the hammer throw and the caber toss (not to be confused with 'caper toss' which is much easier, but less fun to watch) and the highland dance competitions and the pipe'n'drum competition. And I drank iced tea and ate some grape flavoured sugar. BASICALLY IT WAS AWESOME.

Last night it was the Relay for Life and it poured rain and we didn't have a tent. LESS AWESOME. We did good though. I was proud of us.

TOMORROW. Tomorrow is going to be awesome times forty. Tomorrow the big bang story I co-authored with [livejournal.com profile] epiphanyx7 -- titled 'And Grace Will Lead Me Home' -- will be posted to our joint dreamwidth account. Today, in order to generate interest, I am posting our summary and warnings. Tomorrow I will be spamming you with my master post as well. <3

Brought Abby out for a walk after we said bye to Claudine and brought my mp3 player. Today's 'album of day', it told me, is Sloan's 4 Nights at the Palais Royale. I had all but forgotten about this album under the onslaught of new musical loves.

And let me tell you, I feel like a knob for that. If you've never heard Sloan, I implore you to check them out. 4 Nights is a live album, so it might not be the best place to start (I still love it more than I love toast and pirates put together though). I recommend One Chord to Another. The entire album is mind blowing. I mean, I don't know jack about music in the sense of having any education, but I can tell you that there is not a song on that album that doesn't make me feel something.

Sloan, I love you so much and you will forever be the music that reminds me of the good stuff that happened in high school. I'm sorry I've neglected you. I promise it won't happen again. TSwift is no where near as pretty as you anyways.* Sloan, take me back and I promise you can be the soundtrack to my life again.




*TSwift, if you're out there, you're still super hot and I still love you.

If I am very crazy all at once, we call it a complete breakdown or that time Cas and Bobby had a baby and they didn’t name it Trgiaob.

If I am crazy at a consistent rate for three years, we call it my Twitter feed.

Given the rate at which I tweet, I’ll probably hit 3,000 tweets today or tomorrow morning. In an attempt to determine when I started tweeting at all, I scrolled through 2,991 tweets last night. For the most part I can say 'cool!' because it made me remember things that I may have otherwise forgotten about. But there was also quite a few moments of 'WTF was I talking about?' And so I bring you that now. The best of the WTF moments of the last 3000 tweets. A lot of them are about trees. I couldn't tell you why.
Original spelling mistakes and crappy grammar preserved.

This is where it all starts to get weird. )

Okay guys. I blurbed a few days ago about Lady Gaga/TSwift and their epic love story (just say yes). [livejournal.com profile] epiphanyx7 put out (as usual)

This has cemented her place as Faithful #2. What have the rest of you done to endear yourself to me recently?
unavoidedcrisis: girl lying on the ground with playing cards scattered over her (awesome -> BRAVO george)
