One song: Whiskey by Marian Hill (thanks to electricbluefli who infected me via her Charloe playlist)
Two movies: Xmen DOFP (The Rogue Cut) which I finally watched with the husband a couple of nights ago;
Three shows: (I'm watching on Netflix right now) Longmire, Rush, Brooklyn 99
Four celebrities: David Lyons, Tracy Spiridakos, Billy Burke, Daniella Alonso. (No, I am not over Revolution. Why do you ask?)
Five foods: Turkish delight from the Preston market, serrano ham, the sourdough in the breadmaker right now (the SMELL), buffalo cheese, marinated olives
Six ships: From Revo, CM2 (Charlie Matheson/Bass Monroe/Miles Matheson), and from Rush (my favourite Aussie police show which Netflix has won me for LIFE by letting me rewatch all four seasons) Josh/Tash and Stella/Kerry(the eyefucking got a bit intense last night when I might have watched five episodes in a row). From Longmire, I am resisting shipping Vic/Walt but my god I am failing bigtime. Also Cady/Henry. And Cady/Vic. And Vic/Matthias. And Walt/Henry. Lousy multishipper than I am.
(Six, you say? Can't count, sorry.)
well, the dust has died down after a frantic October in which I wrote more than 50k words of Revolution fic. Strangely, I feel no pressing need to do Nano THIS month. If you fancy a big of Revolution fic of the mad and crazy ship-all-the-ships variety, go and check out our collection for The Second Coming at A03, or click through to the master list on tumblr. The Orgy Armada did us proud: 137 stories and a serious flood of artwork made us happy Revellers indeed.
I've still got one outstanding claim (bad mod!) but I wanted to do the story justice as its going to be a hard one to write, trying figure out exactly WHAT is wrong with Miles Matheson. And while I've now filled everything to some extent, not ALL of those stories are finished. But there are a good number that are?
( Ship all the ships!Collapse )
Myself and a couple of friends decided to host a fic challenge ... first time I've done anything remotely like this. We created a tumblr (theorgyarmada.tumblr.com) to unite as much of the fandom as we could in one place, and launched Revolution: The Second Coming, prompting for which closes tomorrow.
(If you are a Reveller reading this and you want to prompt: GO. NOW: firstname.lastname@example.org)
Claiming starts in just over 24 hours (Saturday at noon) and we have over 200 prompts and I am all all excited about pulling this off because people seem keen. LET THERE BE FIC!!!!

Rated: E, explicit sexuality and mild bondage themes
Pairing: Charlie Matheson/Bass Monroe
Summary: It's not that she doesn't like the ring. She loves the ring. But she's had it up to here with his high-handed bullshit, and if he wants to marry her, he can damn well ask. Or, what came after Undone.
At A03: Undone. (7707w). All Tied Up. (7909w).
What's distracting me? My OTHER Revolution muses, of course. Charlie Matheson/Bass Monroe have the most vocal group of fans out there, and it's hard not to get pulled into feeding the Charloe frenzy, especially when people are just so thrilled about it. So ...
and hungry I come and go, (rated M, 1952w) in which I mine Neruda in a bid to describe the amount of sexual tension that crackles between these two characters
A Charloe update for Sexual Headcanons ... E,1000 words for that chapter?
Worth Living For, (rated M, 1197w) and Worth Fighting For (rated E, 2719w) ... the first two parts of an ongoing 'gaps in canon' series, where we look at the Bass and Charlie moments from Bass' somewhat twisted perspective.
Under lock and key (E, 2329w). Handcufffs, Valentine's Day challenge, what more can I say.

Smut mightn't be everyone's thing, but I adore it, and Porn Battle has a very specific place in my writing calendar. I like writing to prompts, and yes, most of my fic gets smutty anyway, but there's something very freeing about writing porn for porn's sake, rather than having it develop in a wider storyline. (Oh, the moral quandary of having to ask myself - is it necessary? Does it add anything? Or have I just written 2000 words of smut because I happen to love writing sex and seduction and all the ways that can play out?) With Porn Battle, I can cut right to the chase, and any plot that insists on developing is secondary to the sensual feast. So - thanks Signe, for all the work over all these years (since 2006, in fact.)
It makes you think about how much some people pour into fandom - how they crystallise so much creativity and drive people to create art and vids and fics just by throwing a challenge out there. Check out PB's list of prompts sorted by fandom - SO many fandoms, So many stories. Some writers will do just one or two stories over several thousand words; others will do a whole bunch of snippets. Whatever your poison, the outpouring of creativity is phemomenal. All down to one person and the volunteers who help her out.
So vale Porn Battle, and may it return when Signe is better able to handle its demands.
So with my Feb suddenly clearer, I'm going to declare February my official "finish all the WIPS month." That doesn't mean there won't be anything new (think I'm incapable of that tbh), but I'm going to make myself sign off an incomplete fic before I start a new one.* Drift Away is close to being finished, I'm working on a new chapter for Infinite Multiplicity, and then I'll look at Tied with a Bow and To Build a Dream.
