How do I do this to myself?

So I've picked up a pinch hit for a Teen Wolf Steter (Stiles/Peter) Reverse Bang story.

Interestingly, for this RB, 'art' is really 'media' and one of the pinch hits I had to pass on included a playlist of songs -- none of which I knew anything about... sigh... I'm officially old! LOL...

I did end up with a pinch hit for a pic I could do something with. The original challenge called for at least a 10K word story, but pinch hits only need to write 5K since the timeline is limited. Okay, I can do that.

Ha!

I'm already 7500 words into an FBI_Rookie!Stiles story and he's still calling Peter just 'Hale' in his head! Meep! But I have to finish the story line before I can fix it up -- there's too much dialog and not enough other words (but I guess it's a lot of 'showing' and less 'telling')... but it does need fleshing out... luckily, I know where it's going, but, well... it'll be over 10K before it's done... sigh...

OTOH, the Steter drabbles I've done recently get more traffic than the Sterek drabbles. It's interesting to see how that flows.

If anyone's available for a quick and dirty beta early next week (fic is due May 31), I'll take any help I can get. I'm looking for SPAG mostly, just a second set of eyes to make sure I don't have anything terribly stupid in the story.

Back to writing!

The Friday Five -- Summer!

On Thursday this week!

Go check out the comm... [community profile] thefridayfive (on DW) and play along!


1. What made you smile this week?

Sunny days and warm weather. I got to take a lovely walk earlier in the week!

2. What ingredients make a perfect Saturday?

Well, now that I'm retired, every day is Saturday. It's decadent... ;-) But I love when I plan something to cook (sometimes, even just cookies), or we go out to eat with friends.

3. What is the best thing you ever had for dessert? Share the memory or the recipe.

4. What is your favorite memory of your mom, or your favorite thing about being a mom?

I remember when my mom taught me how to make her lemon meringue pie -- from scratch, pie crust and all... now, more often than not, I use a pre-made crust, but I still use her recipe for the filling and the meringue.

5. What are your plans for the summer (or winter, for those in the southern hemisphere)?

I've been working on losing weight and improving my mobility after my hip replacement... so I plan to purchase an 'old lady' bicycle -- fat, comfy seat, upright handlebars, and a basket! I live in a great neighborhood to ride around in, its flat and I can go quite a distance without having to deal with a busy road.

Friday Five - History!

From [community profile] thefridayfive on DW! Feel free to steal from me or go there and play!

1. Is there a particular historical period or event, anywhere in the world, that fascinates you?

I was a kid in the 1960's and there are aspects of that time that I think would be fun... there's no perfect time, but, boy, some folk really did have a great time.

2. Would you like to visit that time, or live in it permanently, or does the whole idea make you want to run screaming?

I'd only want to visit, I think... no internet! ::grin::

3. What's the best piece of historical writing, nonfiction or fiction, you've ever read?

I don't know if this is cheating, but "Written by the Victors" by Speranza (on AO3). It's fanfiction of a future universe written in an academic/historical style. It's brilliant for the format (and the story is cool, too!)

4. What's the worst?

I've read some dreadful historical romances over time... I read so little 'real' historical writing that I can't begin to name anything specific.

5. Is there a historical site you would love to visit?

Huh. This is harder than it looks. When I was in grade school, part of a family trip to the Western US included a visit to Mount Rushmore. I'd like to go back, but to the way it was then, since it's essentially an icky tourist trap now.

Done! Phew!

For anyone following along, I spent the month of April writing "Shouting Down the Silence" on Kiera Marcos' Rough Trade site.

It's now as complete as it's going to be for the moment. It's pretty rough, since it's 30,000 words written across the last 30 days and posted pretty much as it was written.

Links to the chapters can be found here: http://www.roughtrade.org/category/projects/shouting-down-the-silence-stargate-atlantis/ There's no internal links to the next chapter, sorry... use that page as your guide.

Keira will be cleaning up the site, probably by late May-ish, so it won't be there forever. But I will be putting it aside for a moment, so it can simmer a bit and plan to get it on AO3 by early Fall.

The story has lots of potential for more, which is cool, so as opportunity arises, I'll be likely to add to the series.

Thanks to anyone that read along and, if you've been waiting for it to be finished, now's your chance!

The Friday Five - High School!

Check out [community profile] thefridayfive on DW...

1. Did you enjoy your senior year of high school?

Skipped my senior year of HS. Was in a position to graduate early, so I did!

2. Did you have a senior trip (high school) and were you able to go on it.

It was a *huge* high school (800+ in the graduating class), so there were no senior trips.

3. Was graduating (from either high school or college/university) a big thing with your family or just another day?

Didn't go to the HS graduation, but college graduation was a bog thing... family came to the ceremony, there was dinner, and a night out with friends. Good memories.

4. What were you looking forward to the most after graduating from either high school or college/university?

After college, definitely looking for a job! I ended up with a professional job I wasn't good at and got canned (rightfully so!) from that. Worked in a Dunken Donuts for a bit before I found a professional job I was good at... never looked back from there!

5. Knowing what you know now, what advice would you give your graduating self?

I was more than ready to get out of high school early... if you're mature enough and have something to do (school, work, whatever), then don't hang around just for your friends. Take a minute to do something for you. I never regretted not going to the senior year of high school.

April Rough Trade fic

The April 2019 challenge on Rough Trade (https://www.roughtrade.org) is to write a sequel to an existing fic.

I'm in the middle of writing a sequel to my story "Embracing the Silence" which was originally a fic for [community profile] apocalypse_kree. So I killed off everyone in that first fic. The sequel, "Shouting Down the Silence" is John and Rodney going on in Pegasus after that disaster. It's like 1/3 done (the goal is 30K -- meep!) but I'll get to at least 25K before the end of the month. (crosses fingers!)

I know a lot of folk hate to read WIPs but there's some amazing fic there that you may never see again... once the challenge is over, the site it wiped clean and it's up to the individual authors to do what they want with their stories. If they aren't folk that you already follow, you'll never get to see that story again.

Admittedly, some won't get finished... and there's a mish-mash of fandoms. There are a half a dozen SGA stories, just as many Teen Wolf, a couple Harry Potter, a bunch of MCU, and some NCIS and Criminal Minds... even a Hobbit fandom story... you do need to be a Tony Dinozzo fan, since he appears in HP, MCU and NCIS stories... and even in an SGA... there's a fascination with Tony among this group of writers. It's interesting to see what-all everyone does with Tony.

But if you're willing to take a chance on some WIPs, there's some great stuff there... I'm not getting as much written as I should because I'm reading what other folk are writing...

Go. Read! You have to join the site to leave a comment, but you don't need that to just read...

Fansplaining Survey

If you're interested, there's a fun 'shipping' survey by the Fansplaining folk... it's about 'shipping' and what you consider ships, what shapes your interest(s) and other related questions. It's actually a good group of questions, pretty targeted and easy to do...

The Friday Five - Spring Edition

1. What is your least favorite part of Spring?

The dampness... snow is still melting in places, the ground is still wet and the concrete is holding both cold and damp... makes even a warm-ish day cooler. When it's 40-ish outside, I'm turning the furnace up a degree to combat the damp feeling.

2. What is your most favorite part of Spring?

More daylight! Brighter days. Warmer days!

3. What is the latest good book you've read?

I read so much fan fiction that I haven't read a 'real' book until I joined a book club recently.

"Eleanor Oliphant is Fine" is an interesting read. At first, the first person POV was annoying, but then it was an important part of the story... it's a good read, well written and has a twist at the end that I didn't see coming. Recommended!

4. What are your plans for this weekend?

Saturday will be faintly lazy, but Sunday night we're going out to fancy dinner with friends. I've been looking forward to this for a while!

Upcoming Rough Trade and me!

The upcoming Rough Trade project for April is to write a sequel to an established work.

I'll be writing a sequel to "Embrace the Silence" (on AO3 here: https://archiveofourown.org/works/2551211

I won't be cross posting much anywhere, because I'm going to be busy slogging out 30,000 (!) words over the month of April.

You don't have to create a RT account to follow along, but you do need one if you're at all interested in cheerleading... ;-) Once April is over, the story will go away (that's the usual protocol) and I'll probably be working on making it shiny to share legitimately... so you'll get to see it eventually...

There will be other stories there, too, so if you're interested in some new works, you may want to poke around. There are some interesting looking stories in multiple fandoms that you may want to keep an eye on. It's a reader's paradise. No guarantees that the stories will be perfect or even finished, so you'll have to take anything you see with a grain of salt. And it's run by Keira Marcos, so you have to obey her rules on commenting. (Bottom line: no questions, no critique and only positive comments!)

I'll be doing some other work through the end of the month, so there's a couple of weeks to go before April starts... but I'll pretty much only be doing that one fic through April.

Swing by, if you're so inclined!

Friday Five -- St. Paddy's Day!

1. Have you ever made corned beef and cabbage?

Of course! Making some this weekend! Mostly for me, the hubby doesn't care for it!

2. Will you be tipping back a decent pint of Guinness this weekend?

Not a Guinness fan... but I could go for some Irish Whiskey!

3. Do you own an Irish wool sweater?

I love the look, but wool makes me itch too much! So, no, don't own one!

4. Have you ever ‘met’ the Tart with a cart (i.e. have you been to Dublin)?

No. (Maybe not yet! My brother wants to go... )

5. Do you know what tractors, submarines and ejector seat all have in common?

Not a clue! Toys for boys? Huh. I googled it (and not telling), but I should have guessed!
