New Fic: The Ground Beneath My Feet (three stories; In the Flesh, Kieren/Simon) [Oct. 22nd, 2014|01:11 am]

(Shatter / Wear Your Rue / Coming Back)

The link leads to AO3; the most recent of these three, Coming Back, was just posted today. In total, these three pieces consist of 28,000 words (8k / 2k / 18k).

New PR Stand-Alone: Act Together [Sep. 14th, 2014|04:57 pm]

Title: Act Together
Pairing/Characters: Newton Geiszler/Hermann Gottlieb; Sasha and Aleksis Kaidanovsky, Tendo Choi, three J-Tech trainee OCs that some of you may recognize, Stacker Pentecost
Rating: Explicit [NSFW]
Word Count: 10,217
Notes: This is an AU only in the sense that I've tweaked one detail. Instead of Hermann going through the Jaeger Academy in 2015 and Newt going through in 2016, I've delayed Hermann's (and the Kaidanovskys') entry until 2016. I wanted to test a situation where a) Newt and Hermann meet for the first time in training and have to (hopefully) get their initial spat out of the way a lot faster, and b) a core group of characters we see in the film bond a bit earlier in the canon timeline (Hermann and the Kaidanovskys went through the JA together, and Newt and Tendo went through the JA together; in other words, I wanted to pull all of these characters into training alignment for the sake of narrative experimentation). If you've seen the-oxford-english-fangeek poking me about something we were calling "the Anchorage AU" for a while, this is it; additionally, cypress-tree and I decided a couple of months back that we'd both write something and post at the same time (thanks are also due to her for the beta). The timeline of this story spans early June through late November of 2016, with an additional scene set in February of 2017.
Summary: "You know I'm only a liar when it matters, right?"

New Pacific Rim Fic: Recover [Aug. 28th, 2014|01:44 am]

Title: Recover
Pairing/Characters: Newton Geiszler/Hermann Gottlieb; Tendo, Herc, Mako, Raleigh, Max, OCs
Rating: NC-17 [NSFW]
Word Count: 6,340
Notes: Around six months ago, during a conversation with bowlingforgerbils, I tossed around the idea that has essentially become this story. However, I deferred it because Parallax / Perihelion called for an opening scene in the same physical setting as the opening of this piece, and I wanted to space them out sufficiently that by the time I got back to this one, I'd be looking at a medical context with fresh eyes. There's no injury in this story more serious than you see them sustain in the film, although I would say it's taking a look at the more literal cut-scrape-and-bruise variety alongside the hesitation of how to break new-relationship ice without fucking up. This is a stand-alone, although you'll notice that the backstories I established for each of them in Anthology very much apply here (as you can assume they do for all N/H fic I've written or may yet write).
Summary: You're my new favorite blanket.  Come inside?

CoT podfic project update!

So I got a prompt from a Tumblr anon... [Aug. 7th, 2014|02:32 pm]
[Tags|, , ]

...that, in my opinion, is absolutely stellar.  It reads: You're a poet, right? I think Hermann has a complex history with reading and writing poetry given that remark of his. Write a poem from Hermann's perspective.

Here's the result: Orbital

Another fresh CoT delivery (the second this month): [Jul. 31st, 2014|05:15 am]

Title: Matters of Inconvenience

Fandom: Good Omens

Rating: PG-13

Pairing/Characters: Aziraphale/Crowley; Adam Young, a few usual OCs

Notes: The five prompts that I've batched together to form this piece have come from spacedudebenny (Crowley gets a speeding ticket he can’t magic his way out of), quetzalpapalotl (I’d like some A/C acting godpaternally towards Adam), firesighn (Maybe a cat takes a shine to the mouse, but not in the way Crowley expected?), seji and the-oxford-english-fangeek (Aziraphale and Crowley watch Pacific Rim), and linda3m (naked swimming, wine). I've done my best to write these as readable without having read the rest of the series, but know that they're very definitely set right in the wake of the most recent long main-timeline story (World Without End).

Summary: Life reverts to the usual [laughable] drama faster than you'd like.

Two PSAs: [Jul. 27th, 2014|07:17 pm]
[Tags|, ]

1) Due to the fact that I've done a lot of structural/minor word-change edits to Anthology on since completing the series in June but have neglected to make many of these changes to the LiveJournal postings, I've decided I'm going to delete the postings here and let this series be available on AO3 only. If you left comments on any Anthology installments here on LJ, don't worry: I've archived these over on AO3. If any of you are still catching up, I apologize that you will not be able to read or comment on this particular series here. AO3 permits commenting even if you don't have an account. It's causing me far too much grief, having too many posted versions of long stories/installments and having to worry about edits across platforms. My life's complicated right now, so I'm trying to simplify for sanity's sake.

2) Similarly, I'm in the process of archiving old comments on all CoT installments over to AO3, and I'm only up through BBSG so far. As you can imagine, this will take a couple of weeks, but due to some similar issues with edits I've made to AO3 but not to LiveJournal, CoT will, similarly, once the comment-archiving is complete, be available on AO3 only. For any of you who had missed it, a new story has been added to CoT this month (World Without End; 17,000 words across two parts; R). Having to maintain two different numbering systems (LJ-post reckoning and AO3-post reckoning) on the installments has been too troublesome to keep track of.

New Pacific Rim Fic: Try Anything Once [Jul. 21st, 2014|10:25 am]

Title: Try Anything Once
Pairing/Characters: Newton Geiszler/Hermann Gottlieb; appearances from Tendo and Alison
Rating: NC-17 [this is non-negotiably NSFW]
Notes: I ended up at a fandom party on Saturday where this crack-prompt was handed to me because we'd all ended up watching this video and WTFing over it. At first, I doubted my ability to work with it as a challenge, but the part of my brain that still wants to be writing PR fic nonstop said, look, no, there's something potentially hilarious here (and I'll admit up-front that my favorite sex scenes, both to read and to write, are the awkwardly realistic ones where there's plenty of good-natured laughter). Before you read the story, watch the video; I apologize up front for the several minutes of your life that you'll never get back, but it's necessary for context (and may just be one of the funniest sex-novelty tutorials you'll ever watch). Also, while this is being posted as/designed to be read as a stand-alone, for anybody who cares, it's very much set in Anthology 'verse.

"I had no idea grapefruit could function as a verb," [Newton] says in reverent, drunken awe.

"Oh, just you wait," says Tendo, taking the video off pause. "It gets better and better."

Newt, Tendo, YouTube, and a ton of beer lead to a surprise for Hermann.

(Read it @ AO3)

[My friends, I so rarely write crack-that-isn't-precisely crack, but please be forewarned that's exactly what you're going to find here.  The YouTube video is all kinds of WTF, and it is also unquestionably NSFW.]
