*Someone recommended this lovely fic to me and I'm passing it on, not even having finished. It's Star Trek XI, Cupcake/Chekov, and highlights the fact that what little we get of "Cupcake" in the film is that he stands up for a woman who's said no more than once already. Kirk's the hero of the film, and yeah, Cupcake's rough, but does that make him right? Very sweet, and I believe the author has gone on to write more about him. We always read about Starfleet's avowed geniuses. What about those redshirts, huh?

*This should explain itself:

*An interesting writing meme:
Is my id showing?

via [ profile] snickfic: So, a couple of us got to wondering what our fics revealed about us. Hence this anonymeme. Are our ids showing?

I've just put all my stuff up on Archive of Our Own, so this got me wondering. I probably know what my primary concerns are already, but it's interesting to think about how many of them come through in my fanfiction, and which ones I'm not actually aware of. And I wonder if they're consistent through fandoms, or if my concerns are native to one or the other area. Or is there something that links my RPF and my Trek and my Phantom of the Opera? I'm not sure anyone's actually read fic in more than one of my fandoms, but if you've got any insight, let me have it!

*My thoughts on New Who, through The Time of Angels (not v. positive) )

This is that meme where you post a sentence/paragraph from all your WIPs. I haven't been writing a lot lately, but I wish I was. Looking back through this stuff has been really interesting.

I have tons of unfinished fic. I don't know if this will spur me on to finish any, but I regret each one that I haven't, and hopefully, one day, I'll know how to tackle them.

some TJ Hooker, Star Trek, Shatnoy, Phantom, Holmes, Sweeney Todd, and T.E. Lawrence--sometimes more than one )

WIP meme

Post a single sentence from each WIP you have (or as many as you want to pick). No context, no explanations. No more than one sentence!

1. They made love that night at her insistence, in a room that recalled the cellar only in the coolness of the satin sheets.

2. Christine Daae, he had written one day, a few pages too far in for him to feel easy in overlooking her importance, does little, says less, and knows nothing.

3. The man—whoever he was—would hardly object to a fire, and whether dead or asleep could not object anyway.

4. "I take it that’s not the only discrepancy you find in M. Leroux’s account," Holmes said.

5. "How many unpublished concertos and operas do you have lying down there? How many useless bits of gears and wire are rusting away while Edison and the rest make a bundle patenting everything first?"

Oh man. One of these is from 2004. I suck!

Expanded fanfic meme

Have you ever read a fanfic that just begged to be expanded, to go beyond the hundred or thousand or ten thousand words into something more substantial? Have you ever come across an intriguing passage in a fanfic that made you want more elaboration, more detail? Well, now's your chance. Dig through my stories and let me know if there's a fic(let), an idea, a character you'd like to see expanded.

Hit me with... well, you know

I was just mean to [ profile] tkp about this meme, despite the virtual!bleeding heart she gave me. So I feel it's only fair to open myself up to the same:

Name or describe a few fics you think I will never, ever write. In return, I will attempt to write a snippet of one of them.

I haven't been writing enough fic. But in the meantime...
