All of these are crossposted to Ao3 as well, but I am a lazy butt who is too lazy to provide links right now. (The RPF is locked on Ao3 and I'd appreciate the links not getting crossposted [or--if they have to be--anonym.to/? is your friend] because I still feel kinda skeevy I'm writing RPF. The solution would be to /not/ write any RPF, but I think we can all see how /well/ that is going.)

We'll see if I can get anything more written, but between this cold that is threatening to engulf me and suddenly! papers to write, am not holding out too much hope.

Happy Valentine's Day/Normal Friday or it was when I started writing out this thing.

I really should be working on final papers and studying for that one final that I have, but of course I'm writing fic. I don't know what it is about this show that had me so inspired, but I'm pretty sure it's over now so I can be less obsessed over it lolz who am I kidding I will always be obsessed

I am somewhat oddly proud of this fic? Because the first several attempts at it (at both the Reichenbach interpretation and the crossover) did not go over too well. I did not cry writing it because, of course, Sherlock is not dead. Joan (along with everybody else) just thinks he is.

I am not at all caught up with Elementary though and I got spoiled on some of the episodes looking at Castle/Elementary gifsets on Tumblr (OOOOOOMGGG SOMETHING HORRIBLE HAPPENS TO [CHARACTER] AHHHHH MY PRECIOUS BABBBBBY)

I do have some more plans for this crossover, but we shall see if they materialize.

The Top 5s meme will be back soon, I just got stuck on one day and maybe once I sit down and really think about the answers, I'll get unstuck.

But I realized the other day I never did cross-post a little ficlet I wrote for gladdecease's birthday a week ago, so shall rectify that now. (It's quite popular on A03, well, popular for me which is mind-boggling because it is literally only dialogue, but Clyde's a popular dude/tortoise, apparently. Also, I don't want to promise anything, but I'd love to write more fics about Clyde because he's awesome and I love him and I just wish I was better at developing ideas and following through on them.)

So, yeah. I had written this way before I went to see Star Trek Into Darkness (like a day before, I think it was?) so it's not STID fic, but based on the first rebooted movie; only tonight I finally managed to proof-read it. The interesting thing, for me personally, is that it's in Spock's p.o.v. mostly, which is shocking because a. never would I have entertained I'd write anything Star Trek-ish (it's a wonderful fandom sandbox to play in, but so intimidating, quite like comics fandom, because there is this whole history behind it, and it's a cultural movement, and GUH! where would one even start? Which is why nu!Star Trek is so hopeful) and b. even if I were hypothetically to have entertained the idea in the first place, I wouldn't have pictured Spock to be my fandom ice breaker as it were (well...Kirk/Spock, but more Spock than the ship because, alas, the 'ship is practically nonexistent in this fic).

Also, another interesting thing is Kirk here says he's fine a lot, and in Star Trek Into Darkness, I noticed he says he's fine too. This was purely coincidental, and I don't believe him in either case.

Omg, this thing is finally posted! I'd been working on it since I signed up for cottoncandy_bingo in August. It's a short piece, but I had no idea where I was going with it so 'm glad that it finally took a cohesive shape even if nothing much happens, but is more of a slice-of-life piece.

Dear self,
What are you trying to accomplish with this fic that's wanting to be an epic? Seriously, brain, get with the program and then send that program to my fingers. I would really appreciate it, thank you. (This is why I can't handle writing anything really long [really long for me being about 5k words] or handle brainstorm/outlining).

Unrelated to the above fic complaints - there was fic today:

Meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish

so this meme asked for the top ten sites that aren't about *books* - comics aren't books though so I'm not really cheating. Right? I don't know. I do my own thing.

1. Tumblr: I feel like tumblr is the amalgamation of EVERY SITE ever on the Internet (and this list). But with more graphics and less annoying changes. I am on there way more than I need to be.
2. iFanboy: where I go for the majority of comics news; they also have nifty top 5 lists too and I can't resist lists (example: Top 5 Deaths of Jonathan Kent).
3. Archive of Our Own: this is the fan fiction site I left Fanfiction.net for (god FF.Net totally irritated me there for a few years with all of their changes and having to post anything new was such a hassle)
4. Comixology: so getting into comics is a bit daunting, getting into digital comics is EVEN more daunting, but I think sites like these facilitate that exchange.
5. Marvel: besides just being a great online encyclopedia of Marvel characters, the blog posts are worth a read as well.
6. DCComics: I really like their Preview Mondays and they've started doing creator profiles that are awesome - full list of creator portraits.
7. Comic Book Resources: while I get most of my comics news from iFanboy a lot of the time, the reason I really like CBR is they have previews of awesome comics that are due out that Wednesday or whatnot (um, I should say I am not all that enamored of its forums and stay away from them - and pretty much anything else with a lot of comments - but they do have awesome reviews and columns and blog posts like 'The Ten Cruelest Things Joss Whedon Has Done To His Characters').
8. Wil Wheaton's blog: so in my obsession-that-came-out-of-nowhere-and-punched-me-in-the-face phase of watching Eureka and seeing Wil Wheaton as the ass-holey Dr. Parrish (...I hope he won't always be cast in tv shows as the jerk character, I really, really hope), I somehow became a fan of his and then made my way over to his blog? Who the hell knows how these things happen. This post was especially awesome. (He also has some posts talking about the comics he's into at the moment which are relevant to me.)
9. Aria's Ink: the truly awesomest Sailor Moon site that's still alive and kicking (you have no idea how many awesome SM sites are long gone). And is SOOO awesome. I am not be as active there as I once was and I kind of feel sad about that, but you sometimes move away from your childhood interests and that's okay.
10. Twitter: gosh, Twitter is like the website that excuses you from talking about yourself nonstop about what you had for lunch; sure it's also practical for following famous people and authors and creators of awesome things, but it's mostly about ourselves, come on, who are we kidding.

I love people talking about their own writing and feedback and meta-ish thoughts on those subjects. So two links on Archive of Our Own's kudos function:

Today's poem:

"Prodigy"
Charles Simic

I grew up bent over
a chessboard.

I loved the word endgame.

All my cousins looked worried.

It was a small house
near a Roman graveyard.
Planes and tanks
shook its windowpanes.

A retired professor of astronomy
taught me how to play.

That must have been in 1944.

In the set we were using,
the paint had almost chipped off
the black pieces.

The white King was missing
and had to be substituted for.

I’m told but do not believe
that that summer I witnessed
men hung from telephone poles.

I remember my mother
blindfolding me a lot.
She had a way of tucking my head
suddenly under her overcoat.

In chess, too, the professor told me,
the masters play blindfolded,
the great ones on several boards
at the same time.

You can also listen to the poem being read by the author.

This poem might've come around during the last five National Poetry Month extravaganzas I did around here or not (Charles Simic has definitely been featured here before), I don't remember, but he is one of my favorite contemporary poets ever. Ever.

DIRECTIONS: List the ten stories on Archive of Our Own.org with the greatest number of hits and if you wish, leave commentary about what you think it means.
BONUS/OPTIONAL QUESTION: What are your top ten favourites of your stories at AO3?

Really, the reason why these stories got as much hits as they did was because they featured hot guys getting it on with other hot guys. Alas, gen and femslash pieces do not get as many hits.
