I've been going through my Youtube history, since I never got around to 'liking' things I ... well, like, and apparently there is some critical vid-watching-point where I sulk over my own non vid making capacity, then go back to writing. Apparently there is also something in my brain that only ever gives me the urge to write things I have no particular need to write.

So: fic that is more or less an updated version of something I've already written, because I wanted to.

I will probably doing more audio things in the near future, because, honestly, it's about all I have time for at the moment. Back in ye olde days of 300-level classes, and only three of them, I had plenty of time for my sort of involved, rambly essays, which I just don't at the moment. But I do want to stay involved in my fandoms! So audio stuff that doesn't take as long, with transcripts when I can manage, so sort of like rambles, but more...spontaneous!

In related whatsits, I would like to do a reading of something I didn't write, in accordance with the whole hey-I-have-time-for-talking-if-not-much-else. So if anybody is willing to have me podfic a fic of theirs, drop me a line or a comment or something.

In happy-making news, the ace bigbang is going to happen for reals, only it's going to be BETTER -- a full-blown people-who-aren't-straight-or-cis bigbang. I already babbled at [personal profile] tulina and [personal profile] hl and [personal profile] biichan about it, but it's so awesome that I had to share with EVERYONE. Hmm, maybe somebody will put it on [community profile] fandomcalendar and there'll be participants on the dw side? That would be cool! Anyway, that's a thing (an awesome thing!!).

Speaking of which, I was just glancing at the most recent ... events, and found something beautiful. OMG. I love OT3s and ship them across all my fandoms, and somebody's already volunteered for my very favourite one. Maybe I could get up the nerve to suggest a prompt? ...eh, probably not. (I get ridiculously nervous about these things! But still, a OT3 prompt is a thing of beauty.)

So apparently I will never run out of these (eta: holy crap there were a lot of them). And I'm gearing up for my essay on the eighteenth-century sublime as a tool of masculine domination (we were supposed to use Northanger Abbey but I got the okay to use Sanditon instead) and a final for my Bible-as-literature class and a revision/four-page-explanation of revision, so.

I wonder if anybody can guess my favourite character. *whistling*

I meant to do the Austen one, really, but most of those who'd be interested have seen most of them already anyway, and ... I'll try and do a double Austen-Tolkien one Friday or Saturday, maybe. In the meanwhile, I've been wandering around tumblr and found a bunch of awesome Star Wars things (too many for this post!), mostly from one shiny tumblr -- though, to be honest, I don't perfectly remember everything I've posted before. Here's to hoping for very little overlap!

I wrote a Fifty Themes; One Character challenge fic thing a ... while ago, and immediately started another one. Between one thing and another (lol, au_bigbangs + Luke is waaaay harder to write than Leia), it's taken me ages to finish it, but finally, here we go.

-----------------------

Title: Son of Necessity

Fanverse: The Quality of Mercy

Blurb: One sentence headcanony stuff about Luke.

Pairings/warnings: Vague references to Leia/Han; Luke and Anakin, Luke and Naberries, lots of Luke and Leia; definitely abides by the headcanon I discussed here; general Skywalker stanning; character death; total lack of any coherent chronology, though some themes follow from the previous ones; occasional lack of clarity about what the hell is even going on anyway; drama!; widespread abuse of and cheating with colons, hyphens, and semi-colons.

Length: one-shot, following from this (2278 words)

Guys, guys (er, the two of you that are probably reading this), I just got Lucy fanart! Not for the au_bb -- just because! And it's gorgeous and shiny and everything is wonderful and maybe there will be more OMG this is one the most exciting things that has ever happened to me in fandom (any fandom) and my face has been frozen in :D for the last hour. Feel free to shower her with praise! Because art for me and it's good.

Title: The Adventures of Lucy Skywalker (Prologue, 1/10, 2/10)

Fanverse: The Adventures of Lucy Skywalker

Blurb: Luke is a girl. (I tried to polish it up for the au_bigbang, but really, that's it.)

Pairings/warnings/assorted notes: No official pairings; no warnings for anything that isn't in the OT already; as always, I consider the films alone to be canon, so there's little if anything from the EU. I relied a bit on the screenplays for things like ages, but didn't treat those as hard-and-fast canon either.

Length: 28,978 words (prologue + ten chapters; finished)

It occurred to me that my paper on (*gasp*) women and Star Wars might be of slightly more interest to ... some of ... you all than to my professor or class, since it's basically ... feminist meta in APA format. Only formal and super-long (so, er, also known as an academic essay).

I'm trying to think if there's anything to warn for - um, it's fairly negative about the prequels, I guess, and feminism + Star Wars isn't really a pretty sight at all, but I can't imagine those are a surprise at this point. So ... here it is.

So, a ways back, I mentioned that there are two crucial steps to genderswapping for me: paper dolls of the alt!character, and Ten Facts fic. I had already done three paper dolls for my present au_bb genderswap (girl!Luke), so that's pretty well covered though I'm not ruling out more, 'cause procrastination is fun -- therefore, on to the next!

Warning:  canonical quasi-incest at #8!  Blissfully ignoring anything that doesn't appear in the movies!  (Yes, I do know that the Skywalker twins are officially nineteen.  I chose to average out their ages in the script, instead.)

ten facts! )

So, I got last quarter's grades back.  Two were A's; one was ... mediocre.  Therefore, I consider myself equipped to offer advice on the subject to the interwebs:

Really, don't try at this home. )
-----------------------------------

Title: Distaff Lines (2/3)

Fanverse: headcanon!land, though technically it could be canon-compliant (I think?) 

Blurb:  Beru liked Shmi.

Pairings/Warnings: even more heavy on the personal canon; still no men whatsoever

Length: 1151 words

Because every fandom needs a fantasyverse AU, and also the other kind of AU that I madly love.

The truth: as I wrote the I <3 ESB list, it struck me that Star Wars is so close to fantasy already that it could transfer to a classic Fantasyland setting pretty easily. And then the plot bunny started making out with my other favourite plot bunny and before I knew what had happened, I was trying to keep a litter of baby plot bunnies from escaping their pen. THIS IS THE STORY OF MY LIFE. 

Anyway, what that actually means is I that I was completely carried away by a story idea, yet again, and scribbled down my ideas before I forgot about them, and so this is a raw unedited one-shot thing, not very good, and blah blah blah.  (Doesn't matter, it's still better than the Holiday Special. :P)

-----------------------------------

Title: Once Upon A Time

Fanverse: fantasyverse!SW

Blurb: Once upon a time, in a land far, far away--

Pairings/Warnings: AU!

Length: idek

There's a lot of fandom discomfort over Owen and Beru.  I've seen them positively demonised -- especially Owen -- and I've seen them persistently referred to as Luke's adoptive parents, even though it's always seemed quite obvious to me that they chose not to adopt him. 

to adopt, or not to adopt )

R2-D2.  Of course.

(OT version.  Of course.)

City of Heroes is not really my thing, since I've never been into superheroes or comics, and I tend to prefer strategy games to RPGs anyway (Alpha Centauri FTW!). However, they just came out with a new release and it's awesome.

Going Rogue )


Back to actual Star Wars, I've watched the next twenty-five minutes or so. Again, my running commentary turned out to be ridiculously long-winded, so (again) I tried to sum up my conclusions about what background we see in this part. Also again, TV Tropes.

I just put myself through the first two prequels again.  (My reaction can be summed up in the following sentence:  WTF Obi-Wan?)

So of course I couldn't not add to my set of personal canons.  Even if I take a fairly casual approach to the actual canon (both for this and the next one).
