Ha ha it has been ONE MILLION YEARS since I posted links to any of my fic. So here's a bunch, and I'm eschewing the AO3 share format because it takes up too much space for so many fics. In chronological order:

As Moves the Glacier - Frostbite, Keaton/Victoria, 100 words. A sensation-play drabble, mostly for the purposes of getting the tag canonized.

Desert Flower - hockey RPF, Fleury, 100 words. A melancholy drabble (BUT NOT AS SAD AS FLOWER'S CONCUSSION ;__________;).

A Good Yarn is Hard to Find - hockey RPF, Granlund/Koivu, 1100 words. A very silly fic about Finns and sweaters that I wrote as a gift for fandomgiftbox.

As Lucky as Lucky Can Be - hockey RPF, Olli/Geno with background Sid/Geno, 4900 words. This is the sequel/companion piece to my Sid/Geno exchange fic from earlier this year. Someone mentioned they'd like to see more of Olli and Geno, and it just so happened I had already written several scenes from Olli's POV in order to kind of figure out where he was at. Somehow in September those scenes magically turned into a complete fic in the space of about three days. I'm really happy with how it turned out. I got to write Geno from a totally new perspective, because I've always paired him with other guys from the core before; I got to write Olli (<3); and I also got to show how Olli has no idea of most of what was going on in the original fic and doesn't care. Just dating Geno is quite enough for him to handle. :) :) :)

you touch my wires - hockey RPF, Olli/Tanger, 2400 words. A cyborg AU! This was for the flash exchange that happened last month. I'd been wanting to write this pairing, and then downjune mentioned she liked robot AUs, and suddenly it all came together. What two better guys than these two to angst about their bodies not performing as designed? :\

i feel love - Riverdale, Josie/Cheryl, 1500 words. Fake dating! This was for femslashex, and my recip described the relationship between these two as being almost political, which I found extremely inspiring. In the course of writing this fic I realized how freaking awesome Valerie is and how much I loved writing her.

Justine, a shy 16-year-old girl raised as a vegetarian, goes off to veterinarian school to join the family business. But the school turns out to be a den of sex, drugs and rock'n'roll where the hazing of the new students is brutal and includes, among other things, eating a raw rabbit's kidney. "It's just food poisoning", says the nurse when she starts feeling strange. But that doesn't explain why she suddenly can't stop thinking about meat. Raw meat. And animals just don't seem to be enough...

Raw got quite a buzz when it showed on festivals last year; reports of people fainting, throwing up, walking out in disgust. And yes, it is - like many a French movie in recent years - exceptionally bloody at points. I don't want to say exceptionally violent, but at the same time I do, because even though there are relatively few scenes of actual acts of violence, the whole plot of Justine trying to adapt to a brand-new world and brand-new desires feels psychologically violent, there are no safe places anywhere including her own mind anymore. And at the same time I love that it doesn't play it for the usual horror beats; both the photo and the plot play out more as a regular, if disturbing, coming-of-age story about sex, family and friendship, where the protagonist just happens to crave human flesh. Not for everyone, but I kinda loved it.

“The cat is such a perfect symbol of beauty and superiority that it seems scarcely possible for any true aesthete and civilised cynic to do other than worship it.”
- H. P. Lovecraft

This is an adaptation of Lovecraft's story from Jason Thompson.

Warning for animal cruelty.

Justice League Action has been producing some terrific episodes, taking a sort of "Brave and the Bold" take on the wider DC Universe.

They've also released a series of shorts, and I think I rather like this one which showcases some problems encountered when Firestorm faces Metallo and tries to transmute his Kryptonite heart.

Wackiness ensues )

and for my next trick

Miraculous Ladybug Season 2 )

I have a strange desire to do

A) a micro version of MaNoWriMo

(like, not even the 30k mini version, but, like. Average of 100 words/day as a primary goal -- yes, that's only 3000 in the month, and I used to be able to do that in a day, but that's more fiction than I've written all year -- with 10k as a secondary goal (333) and 30k as a tertiary (1k/day). Or maybe 10k as the primary goal? I don't know.)

B) that is a remix of Disney beauty and the beast

(not with lyrics and shit, and I could just do a regular batb retelling, but I kind of want to take the Disney specific stuff, gaston and the west wing and the specific castle staff, and play with it and make it better. A few elements of the live version but mostly based on the animated one.)

(which is for one thing ridiculous because Disney version, and for another thing cheating for nano because pre-existing story, and for a third feels lazy and cop-out-ish and why would anyone read a 10k-word retelling of a fucking Disney movie, and all the rest of the bullshit that my inner critic likes to dump in my head whenever I want to do something)

I definitely don't want to nano the disabled-beauty/autistic?-beast story-of-my-heart, because it's too important for Nani treat,net, and I need something that means less. But.

Stupid idea? Good idea? Shut up and go back to crocheting?

Here's a page from a flashback to when Tony Stark met Mary Jane Watson. I am not quite sure when it takes place, but it happens when Mary Jane was a model and when Tony was hitting the sauce. So it is before IRON MAN #128?

Rewatch: 10 Cloverfield Lane is still one of my favourite movies of recent years. There's a couple of reasons for this, and for why I think it's one of the most relevant horror movies recently, no less so after the discussions of the past few weeks, but since this is one of those movies where you really want to be unspoiled the first time I'm going to put it under a cut.

Spoilers! )



I also watched the first two episodes of Slasher, which... nah. Nicely done and everything, but it feels way too much like a regular 96-minute slasher movie, albeit a good one, stretched to a whole television season. But it's impressive what the Canadians manage to get away with putting on television screens in terms of gore.

This isn't Fables. But my bet is it's for the same people who like Fables. -- Bill Willingham
