I want to state some facts before you friend me, okay? Be civil and don't bring unneeded drama. If you defriend me I won't take it personally. This is my journal, and I feel I can post whatever I want in it, so I fangirl squee a lot; however that is the point of this journal since it's a fandom journal. Real life posts are on a different journal which is FO and by invite only. Commenting is not an issue for me.

Fandoms For This Journal
Favorite Characters / Favorite Pairings List

• I believe in Sherlock. Morairty was a liar.
• Watching Masterpiece Mystery is my favorite way to spend a Sunday night. I like Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple and Endeavour because of it.
• Into crime procedurals (mostly Elementary and Hawaii Five-0 when I catch repeats, plus Perception and Grimm when I remember)
• Into sci-fi/fantasy (mostly Eureka ::sob::, Warehouse 13, Sleepy Hollow and Doctor Who, where Eleven is my Doctor but Ten's pretty awesome, too)
• Into Joss Whedon's shows (to varying degrees: love Firefly and continue to watch "Serenity" frequently, have Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog songs on my MP3 player and rewatch sometimes, prefer Angel over Buffy the Vampire Slayer but I still love both shows even though I don't rewatch very often, and eventually I'll watch S2 of Dollhouse).
• Into movies of the live action variety. The only ones you'll really see me writing fic for are the St. Trinian's series and the 2009 Star Trek reboot. I adore them to pieces. I might also try my hand at the Marvel movieverse. We'll see.
• Into The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy (having taken a college course about them), and the movie versions are some of my favorite movies ever. Also a huge fan of the Harry Potter books, as well as the movies. Firm believer that the British do fantasy best.
• Favorite writers include David & Leigh Eddings, Amy Tan, Neil Gaiman and Mercedes Lackey; you might catch me writing The Elenium/The Tamuli or The Belgariad/The Mallorean or Tales of the Five Hundred Kingdoms fanfic every once in a while.
• Into comics, though I abhor the DC reboot after Flashpoint and am waiting for the next crisis to see if things go back to a way that makes me inclined to follow comics again. Favorite series is The Sandman, though I'm also very fond of Gotham Central and the old Birds of Prey as well. Favorite comic is The Question: Five Books of Blood. One of these days I may start reading Marvel. Related note: huge fan of the DCAU (Justice League Unlimited is my favorite) and the direct to DVD DC movies.
• Into manga, though it's mostly Bleach (before the Thousand Year Holy War arc in the manga), Zombie Loan, xxxHOLiC, The Wallflower (aka Yamatonadeshiko Shichihenge), Chibi Vampire, Shugo Chara!, The Tarot Cafe, Oh! My Goddess and Bizenghast. Also into anime, but that's mostly Bleach (subs, not dubs...hate the dubs), Zombie Loan, xxxHOLiC, Cowboy Bebop and a few others that I forgot.
• Former fandoms that I still mention/occasionally write fics for include the CSI franchise (yes, even Miami), Criminal Minds (it just hasn't been the same since Prentiss left), Supernatural (I kind of got back into it last season but I'm still really lost), Once Upon A Time (can't watch this season but I still love the show) and a few others floating around.
• Adore crossovers to pieces. Mostly active in the Wholock fandom (Sherlock/Amy is my OTP, don't hate on me for it). Also write other Doctor Who crossovers because it's the easiest most crossover-est show ever (and everybody could use a visit from the Doctor in my opinion), and Sherlock crossovers because all of a sudden I really like the idea of Sherlock meeting...well, everyone.

So it's done. I had a migraine this morning so I took a sick day and once it was gone I went to work on the Angsty Fic O'Doom. Chapter 10 is fairly short, a little under four complete pages, but now that it's written I am officially finished with the story. Honestly, once I post it I'm not sure I ever want to reread it. It is the most depressing thing I have ever written. I may make a solemn vow to the Sherlock fandom I'll never do this to them again.

I have whittled down my fic writing deadlines to three big bangs, so yay for that. Finally, less deadlines to have headaches over. Here's the lowdown on where I stand with them:

The scifibigbang Khan/Molly fic I started a week ago...Collapse )
The Angsty Fic O'Doom for bigbang_mixup and my desire to get it over and done with...Collapse )
The long gestating 'The Snowmen' rewrite that I was going to do for journeystory last year which is now my casestory fic...Collapse )

Speaking of fic, I've been glancing at some of my fic on AO3 and (apparently) I have two other stories nearing the 3K hits mark, which was quite surprising to realize. One day when I have more internet time I'm going to comb through my AO3 account and do a massive repost of all my Sherlock fanfic which has 2K hits or higher, which I think is around 30 stories? Just because I want to brag. Unsurprisingly they are mostly Sherlock/Molly fics, but there's a couple Sherlock/Irene popping up as well. So this will be fun going through at least 249 stories and going "Dear God, how is that popular?" because, you know, I write a lot for that fandom. Which reminds me, eventually I will post all the Sherlock and Elementary fanfic I posted over the last few weeks for the land_deduction Bingo challenge. Because I really did write over 24K worth of fic for that challenge in the span of a month because I'm crazy. ::nods:: 11 of the 24 stories got written in a week, so some of them are crap and a couple are really favorites of mine. The "Molly gets drugged and calls Sherlock for help" story in particular got what feels like a million kudos in forty-eight hours and that surprised the hell out of me.

Also! I am starting to put serious work in on what I hope will be a really interesting original fiction series. One day I will convert my Wholock fanfic into an original novel, but at the moment I'm plotting out a series called "Bartenders Of The Apocalypse" about a war between Heaven, Hell and humanity/otherwordly creatures where the latter won. Now the demon who defected from Hell and rallied together the humans and the otherwordly creatures owns a bar and the series follows him and his staff as they navigate supposedly peaceful times with another revolt on the horizon as well as the possibility of an entire other apocalypse (Ragnarok this time). But seriously, it's an "ALL FOLKLORE IS TRUE!" and "ALL MYTHOLOGY IS TRUE!" series and I can't wait to finish these big bangs so I can start writing it. I'm hoping I can have the first novel finished in a few months and see about getting it self-published as an e-book. I will be so happy if I can and it's marginally popular.

So yeah. I've been a busy busy writer in the last month or so, but hopefully I can get these last fic commitments out of the way and then devote a huge chunk of time to my original novel. Someday soon, I will be famous as a novelist and I can do what I love for a living. Someday...

Sorry it's not much of a post. The only reason I'm online is I need to get my paystubs for my food stamps report and I figured I'd do this to make my fans happy. I have a headache and life sucks right now. Anyway, I may have stayed up really late writing more of my WIP last night? Maybe? Here's the new chapters.

As Long As You Love Me Truly (9 - 11/?) | Sherlock - PG so far | Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper, Henry Knight, Greg Lestrade, Irene Adler and John Watson in these chapters | All Molly Hooper wants to do is get her big break on the London stage. She might have a chance when she's asked to be the lead in one of the most anticipated productions on the West End, and by the star himself, Sherlock Holmes. But things don't exactly go according to the plan she had in her head of how she would become a well known actress, and as time goes on she needs to figure out whether she wants fame or whether she wants something more fulfilling.

My Molly app got approved last night so I'm having fun with her in game. Mary Morstan is in game but from after the finale where Molly's from post-"The Empty Hearse" since I watched the first few minutes of Sherlock in the library yesterday and ended up muttering "Sherlock, you arrogant asshole" and realized I was probably going to do that through both episodes so it was best if I watch them at home. But yay for getting to write Molly outside of fic! This pleases me.

Also I wrote a lot of fic over the last...week or so, and here it all is. Got a bit preoccupied today with finishing a bunch of half-finished stories today so there's a lot of stuff. Yay for motivation!

Six fics behind the cut!Collapse )

Okay, I know I literally just posted seconds ago, but I'm going to link to my icon post because I know I'll forget to do that tomorrow. The fic can wait. Also, yay for being able to crossover Sherlock & Elementary and write explicit fic for the bingo challenge at land_deduction! That made my day. Also, yay for new icons for both my RP journals and new icons and gif on my welcome post here. So glad I don't rage every time I post as Kirk now.

Icons:
Sherlock: 8 (Molly Hooper)
Actors: 14 (Louise Brealey & Chris Pine)
Star Trek (2009 Reboot)/Star Trek Into Darkness: 4 (James T. Kirk)

So two of these stories got written today, and I'm kind of pressed for time posting them today because my mother is sleeping in the car at the moment so I can have a little more time on the computer. But anyway, here's what I posted on AO3 today!

As Long As You Love Me Truly (4/?) | Sherlock - PG so far | Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper, Henry Knight, John Watson and Irene Adler in this chapter | All Molly Hooper wants to do is get her big break on the London stage. She might have a chance when she's asked to be the lead in one of the most anticipated productions on the West End, and by the star himself, Sherlock Holmes. But things don't exactly go according to the plan she had in her head of how she would become a well known actress, and as time goes on she needs to figure out whether she wants fame or whether she wants something more fulfilling.

The Important Conversation | Sherlock - PG | Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper | Part 12 of my “Anything Can Happen” series | The morning after Sherlock returns home he and Molly talk, and he starts to open up about what he had done for the last few months when Molly asks about his suggestion for a name for their child.

The Attempt To Get Back To Normal | Sherlock - PG | Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper | Part 13 of my “Anything Can Happen” series | It's been a week since Sherlock returned and Molly can see he's having a hard time adjusting. She's bound and determined to do whatever it takes to help him get back to normal, because she loves him so very much and if she can do at least a little of what he did for her she'll do it.

Oh! I also wrote a chapter of the Angsty Fic O'Doom last night. So proud of myself! Soon it will get to the part where I do horrible things to Molly, but I am armed with "Pitch Perfect" and "Starter For 10" as a balm. I just need to finish season 3 of Sherlock. I'll get to it...soonish. Maybe tonight I'll watch episode 2 and later in teh week I'll buckle down and watch episode three. I will<>/i> do it, I swear!

I had so so hoped I would have good news when I finally got online again with enough time to make a post. But, alas, I do not (other than getting fat paychecks lately because of the sheer amount of overtime I've been getting). I've had a really interesting and not so great last few weeks. Long story short:

Oh, my life is crappy, let me count the ways...Collapse )

Today has been a good day, though. I always love being around my son (even if I didn't watch Doctor Who with him...I'll do that next week, I think, since he wants me to bring the box set back) and so far the morning has gone well. But yes. Between insane hours at work and all of this crap, I'm running myself ragged (not to mention I have a bit of writer's block, at least for the stuff I need to write). I'm just counting down the days until the first full week of May because OMG blackout dates are over and I can beg Eddie for a five day shift so I can get a day at Mira Costa to take care of the things I need to and just relax. So I'm almost to the end of the tunnel. Just a couple more weeks and then relief. I hope.

Drive-by post since I got online time tonight but it's almost over. Work is insane and none of us are doing well because too many people + too few people at the rides = not enough sales being made. Totally not regretting not getting the promotion right now. Poor BB leads. And I work six days again next week so no free time for me. Wrote more fic last night/today. Here you go.

The More Things Change… (4/4) | Sherlock - PG | Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper, John Watson, Greg Lestrade and the cab driver killer in this chapter | Part 5 of my "A Different Path" series | Sherlock's life has taken a few turns for the better since he went back to his old life, and it looks as though things will keep improving as certain truths come to light between him and Molly and he makes another new friend. But Moriarty's reach is long and whoever is carrying out his plans isn't about to let him forget about the story Moriarty wants him to star in.
Authors Notes: Part 5 of my “A Different Path” series.

The Morning After | Sherlock - PG | Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper | Part 6 of my "A Different Path" series | It's the morning after their first time being intimate, and Molly and Sherlock share a pleasant if rushed morning together.

Not splitting between personal and fandom posts right now because I don't want to spam all of you with two very short posts. I am currently sitting in the children's section of the library I have my visits with my son at because all the adult computers are being used where the two of us can sit next to each other. I feel kind of special because they're making an exception for me. But I don't care that my son is eleven years old. I'm not letting him sit by himself.

It has been a fairly good day. We spent a lot of time on the computer today, but we also did a little grocery shopping (OMG the chocolate crunch energy version of Honey Bunches Of Oats is SO GOOD...that's my new work snack to get me through my nine hours shifts and three hour commute home) and Trace showed me his new game. I can't watch the roller coaster with the view where it's like you're actually on the ride because my kid is a devious track designer and the loops and stuff make me ill. I don't think I will ever attempt any roller coaster that makes me go upside down now. Ever. We also played a couple rounds of Hangman and my son trounced me. I got one of my mom's words in two letters though.

During the time I have been online I have updated my WIP that's part of my new series with two new chapters, and my son has convinced me to put him in one of my fanfics. As soon as I finish that one I'm going to start the one with Trace in it. There will be Sherlock and an 11-year-old with hyperactivity problems and Pokemon, and it shall be glorious. Which is why I'm setting it in the new AU because I think most of my other Sherlocks would hate him within twenty minutes, except the "Anything Can Happen" and "A Little Holmes" Sherlocks because they're fathers/expectant fathers at this point. They'd simply look at it as a preview of what's coming up in a few years. But I will make sure the kidlet reads it and see if the he approves. So yes. I can't wait to write that. I just need to finish this "A Study In Pink" rewrite first. In case any of you are interested, by the way, here's the two newest chapters:

The More Things Change… (2 - 3/?) | Sherlock - PG | Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper, Mrs. Hudson, John Watson, Greg Lestrade, Sally Donovan and Phillip Anderson in these chapters | Part 5 of my "A Different Path" series | Sherlock's life has taken a few turns for the better since he went back to his old life, and it looks as though things will keep improving as certain truths come to light between him and Molly and he makes another new friend. But Moriarty's reach is long and whoever is carrying out his plans isn't about to let him forget about the story Moriarty wants him to star in.
