Someone remixed me in Cap-IM Remix Madness! It is a remix of Plus One, the fake-dating fic I wrote for [personal profile] magicasen:

An Incredibly Platonic Evening (Plus One Remix) (3776 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Marvel (Comics), Marvel 616, Avengers (Comics), The Avengers (Marvel) - All Media Types, The Avengers - Ambiguous Fandom
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark

Additional Tags: Fluff, Pining, Dancing, Fake/Pretend Relationship, Mutual Pining, Oblivious Tony Stark, Remix
Summary: After years of pining for Steve, Tony invites him to a charity gala strictly as friends. It’s not date. Sure, he might want something more, but it’s totally manageable so long as Steve stays in the dark. Right?

The original story was Steve POV; this is Tony POV, and it's very very sweet. I recommend it highly!

Reveals are in a couple days. I have one story in regular Remix, one story in Relay Remix, and one story in Madness. Try to find me!

"Sons of Mogh"

Ah, flirty flirty with Worf and Dax.

Worf's brother is pissed because Worf has basically fucked over his brother's life by defying the Klingon government, and he's got a point.

I'm not sure how I feel about everyone's objections to the Klingon ritual Kurn wants Worf to perform. The only argument I really find persuasive is that they're on a Federation-administered station and Worf is a Starfleet officer. There was a whole TNG episode about Lwaxana Troi respecting another culture's rituals, no matter how incomprehensible and cruel she found them.

And in the end, Worf completely circumvents his brother and finds an alternative, but without consulting Kurn, and it comes at a horrible cost for both of them. This frustrates me, because maybe Kurn would have consented if he'd been asked. I'm kind of disgusted with Bashir for participating. What happened to his principles as a doctor? I guess I would have preferred if the whole episode had focused on this choice, rather than just tossing it into the last five minutes of the episode.

"Bar Association"

Leeta! And a callback to the tooth sharpener Worf bought from Nog. And I think those were Pakleds in a brief shot.

Rom leads a revolt among Quark's employees, and they set up a union. Unions, of course, being obscene things in Ferengi culture. Not a ground-breaking episode, but it's a nice Rom episode, with fun things like character development.

Title: A Hollow
Rating: PG-13
Notes/Content Warning: Talk of death and implied suicide attempt. From one of my original universes.

There is a small hollow in me now. My death, my mortality, the thing that made me a human with a beginning and end is gone.

I had wanted it to be the end.

But I was brought back with my death now removed. To keep me alive. To prevent me from trying again. A thin silver needle was taken from my throat, so small for the thing that stops the breath and beat of life.

Unable to move as I saw it flash in the light, Vale made it disappear into his sleeve.

I wondered: what was I now?

In news that is both awesome and probably terrible, WB/DC is talking about making a Nightwing movie.

If it's not two hours of dick jokes and gratuitous ass shots while Dick gets tied up and escapes repeatedly, preferably with strategically placed rips to his clothing, then I don't even want to know.

Title: First Meeting
Fandom: Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger
Rating: E
Notes: Just a meeting between Lucky and my OC Amelia, a singer from the Cetus system.
"Wh-where'd you get that?" Lucky asked, pointing at the object in Amelia's hand.
Looking down at the lavender whale curled around the small globe, the singer was silent for a moment before she spoke. "Jark Matter came after me during one of my concerts, I was trying to defend the audience," she said hesitantly. "I..I couldn't let anything happen to them because of me..."
Lucky was about to say something when the sound of footsteps around the corner caused them to whip around. Passing her a Seiza Blaster, he gave her an encouraging grin.
"Just do what I do."

Due to reasons that don't need exploring at this juncture, I've been asked to add 7 biweekly meetings to boss1's calendar through the end of the second quarter, and as you can imagine, this is making me tear my hair out, especially for the next two weeks, which are already overbooked. This lack of understanding of the basics of space-time - that you can't be in two places at once and you can't add extra time just to fit in more meetings (I mean, they are already meeting before 9 and after 5) - is baffling to me. And extremely frustrating because after I work the scheduling magic and manage to fit everybody in somehow, they invariably decide to change things and require more rescheduling. It's stupid and exhausting.

Speaking of exhausting, they confirmed that my dad has a staph infection, the how and why of which are unknown, but nobody's uttered the terrifying term MRSA so I don't think it's that, at least. He says he feels better and wants to go home, which I guess is something. Dom is supposed to buttonhole the doctor today to get more detailed information. And the social worker has already said that he'll be sent to a rehab facility upon discharge to get him walking again. Keep your fingers crossed!


Wednesday reading, on a Thursday:

What I've just finished
The Cafe La Femme books by Livia Day: A Trifle Dead, The Blackmail Blend, and Drowned Vanilla, all of which I enjoyed very much (Drowned Vanilla even has ice cream recipes I might have to try!), though I really hope the whole situation with Stewart gets resolved satisfactorily (by which I mean, in a poly relationship for Tabitha, rather than her choosing one or the other guy).

What I'm reading now
I just started The Bees by Laline Paull, and I mean literally just started so I have nothing to say about it yet.

Working on some fic set closely in the GPF and the timeline seems a little unclear. As I understand it, unlike the events leading up to it, the final usually has a full day off for the men between the short and free programs. For example, the schedule from 2016 [PDF]. But is that necessarily always the case?

From the anime, this is how I understand the timeline:

Have I missed anything? Is this your understanding too? Would you find it jarring for fic to assume the short and free programs happen on consecutive days instead?

☆ Reading Wednesday: Somewhat in the middle of reading a poetry collection, Calling down the sky by Rosanna Deerchild. I say "sort of" because I've kind of put it on hold for now, since I'm having difficulty focusing. It's very strong poetry and I really love her style (it's, hmm, I guess you could say it's both sparse and conversational at the same time - very minimal in form, and with a very strong "vocal" note to it). The subject is (mainly) the experiences of survivors of the residential school system, and it has a really raw note to it.

...Aside from that, I've been listening to an audiobook of Neil Gaiman's Coraline, mainly. It's been ages since I've read the book or watched the film, and I've forgotten almost the whole thing, so it's really interesting to experience it again.

☆ Delicious things: polenta with sausage and mushrooms. And blackberries for dessert. The polenta we used was storebought, and all through supper mum kept going on about how it isn't the same as how it was when her Friulian relations made it when she was a kid, blah blah blah preservatives. Well, I do have a book of Friulian recipes, and the polenta looks like one of the few things that it's possible to make from scratch without altering the ingredients (so many of them require ridiculously specific stuff that you can't get in this frozen wasteland). So... maybe we'll try that some time soon. If we're feeling adventurous.

☆ Night-driving lesson #2 went well. Once again, I did not crash into anything. I did forget to turn the headlamps off after we were done, though. Going to have to remember to... not forget that. Um. That would be bad. Oh well, IT'S A START.

Saw a preview for "Gifted." I hope I can rely on fandom to give me the romance between Chris Evans' character and Octavia Spencer's character which Hollywood will certainly deny me.

[personal profile] sineala
What I Just Finished Reading

R. A. MacAvoy, The Book of Kells: I really loved The Grey Horse so I keep reading MacAvoy but I am clearly not going to love anything else as much and should probably give up. This is time-travel fantasy where the protagonists end up in medieval Ireland (medieval Ireland = a fuckton of Vikings in addition to the cattle raids, who knew?) and it should have been my thing except I felt like all the spiritual moments were mishandled, I didn't care about the Vikings, and the main male character was a jerk. Also, weirdly, the author made him Canadian, and you could tell he was Canadian because when he finally got to medieval Dublin he started singing "Barrett's Privateers." No, really.

What I'm Reading Now

Comics Wednesday!

Avengers #4.1, Black Panther #11, Captain America Steve Rogers #12, Infamous Iron Man #5, Mighty Captain Marvel #2, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #16, Scarlet Witch #15, Spider-Woman #16, Thunderbolts #10, Uncanny Avengers #20 )

What I'm Reading Next

No idea! Books!

Ha, I figured out a plot point while in the shower. I love it when that happens. I guess it's because you're doing something physical, which gives your mind a chance to work differently than it does when you're thinking real hard.

I'm glad to have figured that out, because I want to keep up the writing momentum. And when I say momentum, I'm not kidding. Since February 11, not counting today, I have written 9502 words. In ten days.


I realize this is a day at the office for some people, but that is probably more than my entire fannish output over the past...five years? This is original fiction, but I'm hoping that when I'm done writing it, in maybe a week, I'll be able to apply it to fanfic.

I'm not entirely sure what switch got flipped, but I'm not complaining.

Title: In a Tight Spot
Rating: PG
Notes: A conversation between Vale and Kostya, two original characters of mine.

“Hey, stop poking me with your elbow.”

“Stop being in my elbow’s way, then!”

“Not my fault that we got stuck in this cave.”

“Not your…. Who asked me to go exploring—“

“…did you just kiss me to shut me up, Vale?”

“Will not confirm or deny. Just let me lead you out with that damned elbow of yours. That way you won’t hit me again.”

“I hope that’s your hand on my butt and not some other creepy cave dweller.”

“Trust me, I’m the only one close enough to do so. I better be.”

“That’s good to know.”
