mizzmarvel: (christmas lights - misce_lee_eous)
Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] apologiesqueen and [livejournal.com profile] cynicalpeach for super-cute Christmas cards, and to [livejournal.com profile] imamaryanne for the CD! The CD means I get to take something off my Amazon wishlist, which is something I'm obsessed with.

Unsolicited Yuletide update: I'm about 750 words in. This is actually the second fic I started; the first was way too ambitious to start so late in the game and wouldn't have been finished in time. Oh well. Live and learn.

Title: Blue (13/?)
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 too long since I updated this, and I apologize. I tried to make amends by making this chapter extra good; I can only hope I succeeded.

Thank you so much to [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory for audiencing this chapter and reassuring me that I don't totally suck.

Start with Chapter 1

Chapter 13 )

To start with, you're awesome )
mizzmarvel: (blue fic)
So this evening, I sat down and was like, "Hey, what should I write for the rest of this chapter of Blue?"

And I thought about it for a while, and I actually came up with stuff, and then I sat down and writing came out of my HANDS. Like magic! It's not done yet, but I'm midway through the final section and [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory says it doesn't suck!

To prove I actually wrote, here's a snippet:

“Anyway.” Haley dumped her backpack on the table and ran her hand through her long, blonde hair; it was sort of pretty. “Do you want a snack or anything?”

“I’m cool,” I said with a shrug, mostly because I’d learned not to trust anybody in Stoneybrook with the concept of vegetarianism, not even Byron (hello, Altoids totally have gelatin, though I appreciated the effort he went to to make sure my mouth tasted like curiously strong medicine).


Disclaimer: I actually really like Altoids. Game pieces do not actually talk.

This fic was posted to a friends-only comm which is no longer maintained, so I thought it'd be a good idea to repost it hereabouts. Nothing new, more of the same.

Title: The Allure of Sweater Vests
Pairing: Richard Spier/??? (FOR REALS)
Rating: R
Disclaimer: Dear Ann M. Martin, These characters belong to you. Please do not kill me for writing this fic.
Notes: Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] marcyleecorgan and [livejournal.com profile] papel_luna for encouraging this fic that never should have been written. I'm sorry for the suck. Takes place before the mainstream BSC series.

I'm a problem )
mizzmarvel: (mary anne/tigger - entwashian)
Title: Secretary
Fandom: BSC
Rating: PG
Summary: Mary Anne has the most important job of all.
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. This world is not fun party times. More to come.

My friend Heather and I were so happy about the ending of Top Chef Masters tonight that we screamed like little girls and double high-fived each other repeatedly. Now that's good reality TV.

Also, from [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory and [livejournal.com profile] queenitsy:

The Hypothetical AU Meme: Take any one of the fandoms you know I write in (or think I should), and give me a type of AU (space opera AU, pirate AU, superhero AU, Ancient Rome, etc). I will then explain what story from your chosen fandom I would write for your chosen type of AU.

Hm, I seem to be getting a lot of fanfiction.net reviews lately, which is weird considering I only post chapters of Blue there now (and we all know how often that is). A lot of them are for my old X-Men: Evolution fics, most of which were written in high school, which means I'm no longer capable of reading them. Augh. Still, I have a soft spot for them, since they were the first real fics I ever wrote.

(Seriously, I was a Pietro/Rogue shipper. What. Though my huge chapter fic I never finished was going to be Piotr/Rogue...with Pietro/Rogue undertones. Ah, my Rogue-centric youth.)

I'm also getting a lot of Blue reviews. The new chapter is in progress, but unfinished. I know many writers do outlines and plan their stories in a detailed, organized fashion; I wish I worked that way, because it seems like it'd get the ball rolling a lot faster. When I write, I more often than not just let my mind wander for a while and see what happens. I tend to start the story off with a few lines I like and then build the entire plot from there. Sometimes this is successful, sometimes not.

With Blue, I start each chapter with several goals in mind and work through it with the mindset of connecting the dots. I work from Goal One to Goal Two to Goal Three. In the in-progress chapter, I'm on the road to Goal One. Who knows how the scene's going to turn out, but my goals are set in stone, and they're what'll carry me through to the next chapter.

It's not very organized, and in the past I've really written myself into corners by working this way. But I try very hard to always be conscious of characterization, things I want to foreshadow, and so forth. I don't like to give a lot of plans away (though I pretty much spilled all to [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory this weekend -- if I die tragically young without finishing the story, she can give you the scoop), but since I get a lot of reviews that chide me for my harsh characterization of Richard (Jeff's stepdad), I'll say this: Jeff's not always the most reliable narrator.
mizzmarvel: (ducklings + chaps = YAAA)
A ficlet! [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory prompted me with Darkwing/Launchpad, secrets.

Some things are better left unknown )
mizzmarvel: (blue fic)
I am writing some Blue today. :DDD

And I was all pleased with my output until I realized that I've only written about five pages of this chapter total, and about two and a half of them today. And then I was sad. But I guess it's better than nothing.

I'd post a snippet, but I couldn't really find a good one.

ficathon?

mizzmarvel: (rembrandt - now with 3-armed ladiez)
We're still in Charleston, but we have some access to the Internet, hence this post of great importance.

So [livejournal.com profile] khirsah and I got to talking, which is dangerous because often this leads to Ideas. Mostly these Ideas become new roleplaying games, but this time we were talking about fic. This led to talking about ficathons, which then became the Idea: a pornathon.

Well, not porn per se, of course. Basically, it would be a rather informal ficathon open to any and all pairings and fandoms. There would be word minimum and the requirement that there be adult content, but that's basically it. (Any rules would be hashed out later, but we're anticipating few restrictions as long as there are sufficient warnings for certain content.) Most likely, it'd take place on InsaneJournal.

So my question is:

[Poll #1226322]
mizzmarvel: (namor)
Nabbed from [livejournal.com profile] harmonyangel:

Give me the title of a fic I haven't written, and I'll give you a brief summary.

Specify the fandom and pairing if you want.

Also - today I bought Nutella and saw 27 Dresses. It was pretty cute! The movie, I mean. Nutella is glorious.

mizzmarvel: (shazam - evadne_)
I stole this verbatim from [livejournal.com profile] glossing:

If you could make a request in a ficathon that you knew I would be assigned, what would it be? I probably won't write any of these, so don't think of it as binding, and feel free to be wacky and/or full of yearning. So if you're game, provide fandom, pairing (or gen) and prompt (by which I mean, slice of a song, bit of poetry, three things you want and two things you don't -- no specific plot points -- that sort of thing). If I could write you a story, what would it be?

Today is not good for concentration.

Handcuff tricks are the cornerstone of a magician's craft. They always wow a crowd, and this one in particular is foolproof.
