Breaking news: Someone is WRONG on the INTERNET.

I hate this random person's fic (none of you, flist ♥) and I feel like a jerk because my hatred is so darn visceral. I've certainly read many, many worse fics, but this one's over-the-top characterization, blithe ignorance of canon, and stilted melodrama put me over the edge. It's like the written equivalent of nails on a chalkboard

On a happier note, my little stupid $8 Christmas tree now has presents from [livejournal.com profile] magikfanfic and [livejournal.com profile] derien underneath it. :DDD Why isn't it Sunday yet?

fic recs?

I feel like dipping my toe into a few new fandoms. Anyone got any recommendations for:

1. Criminal Minds, Hotch/Reid. I'm mainly interested in this because I have a shameless crush on both of them.

2. Captain America (movie only), Bucky/Steve. Howard Stark/Anyone. Dum Dum/[livejournal.com profile] mizzmarvel.

Head's up: the auction at [livejournal.com profile] qldfloodauction is ending pretty soon. I'm donating a fic of 1000 words or more. If you'd like to put in a last-minute bid, my thread is here. Or look at the other auctions -- they're all awesome, because it's all going to a good cause.

Oops, never mind; it actually already closed. [livejournal.com profile] jess_bot wins! Once you've confirmed your donation with the mods, PM me and tell me what you want. :)

Hey! I'm donating a fic of 1000 words or more at [livejournal.com profile] qldfloodauction. If you're interested, my thread is here, but take a look at the other auctions, too -- you'd be giving to an incredibly important cause and getting something awesome as a bonus. Win-win, methinks.

Part of me wants to do a commentary on my earliest piece of fanfiction (not counting my one Gargoyles fic from when I was 14 and thought plagiarizing half of it was probably okay). Because hey, it's been almost ten years at this point, and maybe I'm mature enough not to read cringe and get all insecure when I read it and make fun of how awful it is.

Maybe.

I can't even remember the plot off the top of my head, but it was certainly X-Men: Evolution, because I loved that show so much in high school. And it definitely included shades of Pietro/Rogue, because I shipped the hell out of that pairing for God knows what reason. (Also: Scott/Rogue. Only that one had basis in canon.) Also, I know I reference a Weezer song. Ohhhhhhhh, high school!

I'm sure it's all kinds of brilliant.

There's this fic writer (I won't mention her name), and I only read her Star Trek Reboot stuff. As in, I don't read the work of any other writer. Just her. And while she primarily writes my favorite pairing, she's...not that amazing.

Don't get me wrong -- she's very good! I love her work. But I was reading her stuff tonight, and I was like, but is it good enough for me to be reading exclusively?

And I realized -- I used to be a lot more adventurous in my fic reading. At one point, I was much more willing to dive in and explore new authors, pairings that weren't my OTP, and sometimes even work from fandoms I was unfamiliar with. (I got into SGA through fic before ever seeing an episode of the show.) And now here I am, reducing myself to one author, in fear of getting burned.

So! What I want are fic recs. Any pairing, any rating. I'm still a little gun-shy about jumping into uncharted fandoms (though I'll give it a shot if you swear that the fic is the best thing EVAR), but here's a sampling of what I'm interested in right at this instant: BSC, comics (Marvel, DCU, Wildstorm), Disney, ST Reboot, SGA, fairy tales, Glee, Chuck, Newsies, Harry Potter.

Random fic, your friend's fic, your own fic. Please? I would be ever so grateful. There's no one whose fic'ly opinions I trust more than you. <3

Title: Breed
Fandom: BSC
Rating: PG
Summary: The Pikes can't afford to make any more mistakes.
Notes: [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory and I have come up with an AU BSC world -- Kristybrook -- that is at times both very silly and very dark. The first vignette, here, really sets the tone. The second is here. This world is not fun party times. More to come.

Many moons ago, [livejournal.com profile] leah1878 requested a DVD commentary for my BSC fic The Allure of Sweater Vests. And by many moons, I mean three years to the month.

Anyway, I got around to it. Enjoy! Belatedly!

In which I am incoherent and love Richard Spier )
mizzmarvel: (tortoise wins and don't you forget it)
Writing goals for March:

1. Chapter of Blue
2. Ongoing fic of a duckish nature with [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory
3. DVD commentary for one of my older fics

Of course, this just means I'm in a writer-y mood right now. Immediately before bedtime. Because these moments of optimistic inspiration always come at really inopportune times. Tomorrow, who knows how I'll feel?
mizzmarvel: (jessi doubts - entwashian)
Way back when, when I got my Yuletide assignment, I was a bit vexed about what I was going to do. My recipient wanted femmeslash. I don't write it a lot, but I can do it. She also wanted characters I've never written for, but fifteen years of continuously reading BSC books has pretty well prepared me for writing any and all characters in the series. She also wanted a story that was happy.

That was what tripped me up. I had a million ideas for depressing or at least bittersweet fic, but nothing overtly happy. But I didn't want to be a jerk, so I put my nose to the grindstone and tried my best. The first attempt was so awful that I can't bring myself to share it. It also wasn't totally happy anyway. But the second, I felt, was pretty decent. I only abandoned it because I realized it was going to be way too long to finish in time. But in case you're curious, here it is.

The untitled Abby/Dawn project )

...it's always a good sign when I stop mid-sentence. For some reason, I just can't do BSC wedding fic. This is the second one I've dropped despite liking the idea. The first was Byron/Jeff (they weren't the ones getting married).

Title: Abby Stevenson's Theory of Winnertivity
Fandom: Baby-Sitters Club
Pairing: Abby/Stacey
Rating: Teen
Summary: Abby has a theory about winners--they hate other successful people. Clearly that's why she hates Stacey McGill.

I, Abigail Stevenson, am a winner.

I may have accidentally signed up for Yuletide. I, for one, am shocked.

Tomorrow the pairings and prompts lists go up at the Pornathon, so if you have any to add, make them quick! The more the merrier, I say.

In other news, Christmas things we did this weekend - put up (some of the) Christmas lights, decorate the Christmas tree. I haven't done any holiday decorating in years. So festive!
mizzmarvel: (blue fic)
Title: Blue (12/?)
Author: MizzMarvel
Fandom: Baby-Sitters Club
Rating: R
Warnings: Slash, non-happy BSC things happening, implied het
Disclaimer: The characters therein do not belong to me, but rather Ann M. Martin (who'd probably fillet me if she read what I was doing to her kids on a regular basis). I make no profit off this.
Notes: It’s been over a year since I last updated this story. I never intended on letting so much time go by, but I went through some of the worst months of my life this year, which sapped me of a lot of my creative energy. Thank you so much, everyone, for being so patient and so encouraging. It means a lot to me. I just hope this was worth the wait.

And thank you once again to [livejournal.com profile] khirsah and [livejournal.com profile] foozled_up for audiencing this chapter at early and middle stages respectively. Also, new icon. [livejournal.com profile] tarampaiel made this about a hundred years ago, and I just wanted a change.

Start with Chapter 1

Chapter 12 )
mizzmarvel: (blue fic)
Almost 4000 words of Blue, almost 1000 of which were written tonight! This is actually a big accomplishment for me, believe it or not.

Like, seriously, I am very close to being done, but I totally suck and pretty much shut down whenever I get to a part that might be even the slightest bit difficult to write. Which is what is happening right now. I have closed TextEdit and will soon reopen the Baby-Sitters Club Super Special #10, Sea City, Here We Come! Which, actually? I have little interest in reading at the moment, but I'm trying to stay BSC-only to keep my head in the game. Once I'm done with this chapter, I will reward myself by reading one of the three new books I've had laying around for ages.

Anyway, to wrap it up, I have high hopes that the update will be this weekend.
