“The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp” - Terry Pratchett
Just came back from my second viewing of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and of course I've been watching the new season of Sherlock (BBC), so essentially I've been getting an exceedingly high dosage of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman since the turn of the new year. BENE I'M GLAD I LIKE YOUR VOICE BECAUSE IT'S BASICALLY MOVED INTO MY EARS.

Hope everyone had a lovely New Year's!

Quick fic round-up for 2013 before I forget:

2013 FIC SUMMARYCollapse )

So I gave up on NaNo at around the 15k mark, mostly because I travelled to Europe for a week and a half and just could not find the time to keep up (on top of the [community profile] startrekbigbang fic I was supposed to post during that period). Oh well. I should probably stop assuming I can write multiple long fics at the same time.

infixion (37319 words) by Etharei
Chapters: 6/6
Fandom: Star Trek: Alternate Original Series (Movies)
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: James T. Kirk/Spock, Spock/Nyota Uhura
Additional Tags: Action/Adventure, Families of Choice, Angst and Humor, Medical Procedures, Kidnapping, Rescue Missions, Ensemble Cast

A mission of this duration has never been attempted. Just a few months in, the crew of the Enterprise are beginning to understand why – luckily, they are also, somehow, making it work. A series of events, both great and small; featuring cameos by unsuspecting planets, complicated interpersonal relationships, off-record shenanigans, and a surprising number of hostile life-forms.

"The first thing you should know, kids, is that we’re a lot like a family. There’s Scotty, who likes to make things go really fast; there’s Carol, who likes to make things blow up. Uhura makes sure we can talk to other ships and other ships can talk back to us – if this doesn’t seem impressive to you, I dare you to go a whole day without talking to anyone. Sulu drives the ship; Chekov keeps the ship from running into things we shouldn’t run into, like planets and moons and suns. When something inevitably goes wrong and we get hurt, it’s Bones – that’s Doctor McCoy – who puts us back together again…”

These Lost Sons (4020 words) by Etharei
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Thor (Movies)
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Loki/Thor
Characters: Thor (Marvel), Loki (Marvel), Clint Barton
Additional Tags: Porn With Plot, Angst, Character Study, Movie Spoilers, Incest, Magic, Flashbacks

Between Thor's preference for open battle and his sworn duty to Asgard, it had always seemed like an unspoken inevitability that, of the two of them, he will be the one to die first - and this was before Loki began directing his machinations towards that end. It had never occurred to him to prepare for a world in which he would be the one left behind.

Set during and after 'Thor: The Dark World', with general spoilers to the events in the movie.

A week into NaNoWriMo 2013, and not gonna lie, I'm surprised to find myself still writing. This has been a crazy few weeks with TUP (The Uni Project), and my body decided to add a bit of excitement to the mix with a bout of hayfever, so I was expecting my NaNo to stall after a couple of days.

Guess I'll see where it ends up :-)

Cups of coffee so far: 4
Random snippet:
The floor lights switched back from red to green, flashing three times. [She] had the luck of facing the right direction. The lights around the top of the turrets always dimmed for a moment before they shot out a ball. She spotted the slight change on the turret nearest to her, and hopped backwards just in time, instinctively pulling back the body nearest to her. The ball that flew past was one of the fastest they'd seen yet.

10150 / 50000 words. 20% done!

Hope everyone has a fun Halloween! Kinda miss living in the US now. Maybe I'll wear a discreet costume to uni tomorrow.

The end of October also marks the start of something else!

Participant banner for NaNoWriMo 2013

What is NaNoWriMo?
National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 p.m. on November 30. Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought fleetingly about writing a novel. (from the official website)

29th-Oct-2013 02:19 am - up and TUP
It's 2:20AM and I'm still in school, working on TUP (The Uni Project). Well, my teammates are; I'm more here for moral support, since my part is done. It's the 5th or so time we've been in here past midnight. Tomorrow is a bit of a Big Day, as we're showing off our project in public, so we're trying to get it as finished as we can.

In other news, the Star Trek Big Bang has started posting! Go check out all the awesome new fics!

10th-Oct-2013 06:02 am - Lanteans are my jam
TUP (The Uni Project) has reached that point where a lot of component parts seem to be working but a lot are also not working and everyone's kind of sick of the whole thing while simultaneously determined to make it work if we have to camp out in the lab to do it-

huh. Suddenly my renewed fixation on Stargate: Atlantis makes a lot more sense. I'm venting via Rodney McKay, guys.

Seriously, I've been reading so. Much. Fic. Especially Sheppard/McKay, but I've started hitting the genfics too.

*flails at them because BOYS*

28th-Sep-2013 12:38 am - things of the day
Decided to take a much-needed break today from The Uni Project, which shall be henceforth known as TUP, because it's been a couple of weeks of low-level but persistent stress, and I was starting to feel a bit cross-eyed. (I'm more accustomed to short, sharp bursts of high stress, of the sizzle noodles onna blender where did this deadline come from?!?! variety.)

Sent off a long overdue reply-letter to a friend that's been sitting on my desk since Monday. Whereupon I was informed, by the nice lady at the post office, that it's cheaper to send cards than letters?

Have lately been devouring an alarming amount of SGA fic - specifically, McShep. Which I kind of shipped back when I was watching it as it aired, but didn't read a lot of fic of or participated in the fandom. Can't remember which fandom I was in at the time. Torchwood? SPN? That said, the fandom overlap is ridiculous; I opened one reclist and could identify every single writer on it from their fics in other fandoms. It's probably to do with a certain subset of fandom having very similar tastes.
