From a bunch of people, but most recently [ profile] pocky_slash.

I currently have 48 works archived at AO3*. Pick a number from 1 (the most recent) to 48 (the first thing I posted there), and I'll tell you three things I currently like about it.

*And there are at least a dozen short fics floating around LJ/DW. Sorry? In the unlikely event you are planning on requesting a specific fic and you legit want them, just give me what you can remember and I'll dig it up for you. /guilt.

(Too bad I never got hooked into video tape fandom culture. *googles again*.)

The other night my roommates and I tried to watch Bronson (mostly for Tom Hardy.) I kinda liked it and wanted to finish, but it didn't make it past the "half-hour test" for the others -- to artsy and WAY too violent. I'll get back to it when I can.

So instead I convinced them to watch Four Brothers with me. Four Brothers! That's another one I came to via fandom. There was a lot of crossover writers with The Outsiders fandom back in 2007 when I was obsessed with S.E. Hinton, so when I finished reading everything in The Outsiders section on (YEAH. THAT OBSESSED) I wandered over to Four Brothers.

Rewatching it, I realized how badly it fails the Bechdel test, but it did inspire me to dig up this one fix-it I never finished.

I forgot the rules of finding decent fic on -- you start by finding one good writer and looking at who they favorite and who favorites them and start branching out. Normally it takes a really long time before you explore one entire bundle. (And only go through the actual fandom page if you're empty-handed and desperate.)

And now I'm browsing through a Four Brothers bundle. Let's be honest -- it hits the "brothers who will do anything for each other" AND "families of choice" buttons. (It is only now, while I'm in a canon with a very blatant family of choice, do I realize how many Inception fics stapled "Family of Choice" onto the Inception team. It's arguable, I guess, but their connection was far looser than some fics made them out to be. Huh.) Any day now I'll have to check what all the actors have done in the last few years.

Well, in one of those click-through-the-internet moments, (a friend mentioned this post and then I saw this thread and five minutes of googling later...)


It's official. She's my hero.

Plus, I found her twitter! And she's chatting away with Rob Lowe and C. Thomas Howell and I'm going to have to sit in a corner because I. Am. Having. A. Moment.

(For the curious - when I was fifteen I wanted to write original fiction and I thought fanfiction was a good practice/transition. And now in my early twenties, I'm quite happy where I am, thank you, and I'm frankly not all that invested in being an author, for a few reasons. So my reaction to this is mostly "whatevs." That said, I was devastated when I heard Robin Hobb was anti-fanfiction, and I had that same awful feeling when I read Ursuala K. LeGuin's opinion. I can understand Rowling's opinion, even though I gently disagree. I think fandom is really a part of a work becoming a cultural artifact, and fanfiction is just as tied up in there and legitimate as scholarly essays, conventions and chatting with your friends.)

(All that said, I hope she's never seen my Outsiders fic. It's the most emo thing I have ever written and one of the reasons I haven't transferred all of my fic to AO3. *hides*)

(PPS. John Barrowman is also a S.E. Hinton fan. This all ties into my as yet unposted ~feelings~ about his book, Anything Goes, but my Meet John Barrowman fantasy now involves us bonding over the book. ♥)

Happy Fics Roundup II

So, when I'm feeling particularly down, I like to ask for prompts for no-pressure fic. It's a fun exercise, and I enjoy writing for prompts, so it all works out in the end. The first time, I organized my fics and edited them slightly before posting them here. I finally organized my fics from my second prompt call, and cross-posted them to AO3, so here's the official roundup!


Title: So Many Times
Fandom: Torchwood
Rating: G
Pairing: Jack Harkness/Ianto Jones
Notes: Written for [personal profile] hab318princess who requested, "any Jack/Ianto."
Summary: It was hard to catch Jack sleeping.

Jack always fell asleep first. )


Title: We All Have Our Reasons
Fandom: Harry Potter
Rating: G
Characters: Regulus Black, Barty Crouch Jr.
Notes: Written for [profile] anglophile09 who requested, "Something concerning Regulus Black and Barty Crouch Jr.? I'd like to see them interact, in any way."

Of course, you weren't supposed to know anyones name, hidden behind masks and hoods and charms. )


Title: Just Another Day for Some
Fandom: Torchwood

Characters: Jack Harkness, Ianto Jones, Gwen Cooper
Notes: Written for [personal profile] iceshade who requested, "Jack/Ianto, one of them gets bitten by a nostravite."

Gwen and Ianto looked at each other, then at Jack. )

Rating: G
Pairing: Jack Harkness/Ianto Jones
Notes: Written for [profile] fiwen1010 who requested, "Jack/Ianto doing your favourite thing to do in Cardiff."

The third Marquess was still living here when I got to Cardiff,' Jack said. )

Rating: G
Pairing(s): Jack Harkness/Ianto Jones
Notes: Written for [personal profile] analineblue who requested, "some Jack comforting Ianto after a rough day at the office... "

Jack made herbal tea, steeping it too long and over-sweetening it with too much sugar. )

Fandom: The Outsiders
Rating: G
Characters: Ponyboy Curtis
Notes: Written for [personal profile] sharpest_asp who requested, "Ponyboy, prompt of aftermath."

Ponyboy lit his cigarette, then flipped the lighter closed absently )

The creepy assassin dude in Miracle Day episode four was C. Thomas Howell????


I forget that all of Ralph Macchio's aging apparently went to Howell, and I have to stop being shocked when doesn't look like he does on my Outsiders DVD.

I have to give Torchwood props for guest actors, ok? Between him and Mare Winningham, ALL MY BRAT PACK BUTTONS ARE BEING PUSHED.

(I haven't see Fred Koehler in anything, but he played Billy in a production of The Cripple of Inishmaan so I'm just going to give him a billion points. A BILLION.)
