Currently in the process of (very slowly) locking this journal. Most of the (sad, meager amount of) fanfiction I've written remains unlocked. Comment if you're interested in friending; be warned that I'm largely boring, tend to babble a lot about appropriately boring RL things, etc. etc. You can check my profile for more details, if you're so inclined. Welcome aboard, otherwise!
Title: Masterpiece Fandom: The Legend of Korra Character/Pairings: Asami Sato, mostly gen, allusions to Asami/Mako. Rating: PG Summary: Some artists make canvases of themselves. Character study. Disclaimer: Blah blah, not mine. A/N: Spoilers for 1x07! Nonlinear writing! Crazy, unedited piece of brain vomit! Lolololol, it was like 2 AM, and I was trying to sleep, and then I rose from my bed like a zombie and wrote this for no apparent reason. I kid you not. It’s nearly 4 AM, and I have no idea what kind of point I was trying to prove with this, aside from maybe that I am deranged. Also, I may have a minor obsession with trying to get into Asami Sato’s head. There’s more to you, girl, I know it. There’s got to be.
I have no excuse for this monstrosity, I really don't. It began life as the world's crackiest Facebook conversation with my friends, and kind of just, uh, spiraled from there. Also, I have a cold, am high on anti-cold drugs, and didn't want to write my thesis. I'm sorry, everybody.
Title: Four People Who Never Became Spirit Detectives (And One Who Became Something Else) Fandom: Yu Yu Hakusho (primarily), The Hunger Games, The O.C., BBC Sherlock Rating: PG-13 Summary: Yusuke isn't the only spirit detective in the world. Five AUs. Disclaimer: None of these worlds are mine. A/N: Takes great liberties with all present canons, in the grand tradition of crossover AUs. Familiarity with all of them isn't a must, since this is mostly episodic, and you can skip around. Goes off the assumption that the world employs multiple spirit detectives. Also, contains girl!Yusuke, among other weirdo products of my brain. Crossposted to AO3.
What I wrote for Yuletide 2011! I had fun with this one.
Title: Houses of the Holy Fandom: Hamlet Pairing/Characters: Hamlet/Laertes, Hamlet/Ophelia Rating: R Summary: Haunted mansion AU. The Denmark family lives in the kind of house that swallows you whole. Disclaimer: Not mine. A/N: Originally posted here for the yuletide 2011 fic exchange for gileonnen.
I was totally going to write an original short story. And then this happened. My insistence on pretty much only ever writing fic for fandoms no one cares about anymore is apparently alive and well! Clearly, I have learned nothing from my misspent youth.
Title: In Another Life, You and I (or Three Crossovers That Don’t Exist But Should) Fandom: The Mighty Ducks (Game of Thrones, X-Men: First Class, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) Pairing/Characters: Mostly gen. Adam Banks, Connie Moreau, Julie Gaffney, various others. Rating: PG Summary: AU. Three worlds that never existed. Disclaimer: Not mine. A/N: Unsurprisingly, this borrows content from other fandoms – specifically Game of Thrones, X-Men: First Class, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer – but familiarity with them isn’t a necessity to reading this (though I like to think that it would add flavor!)
Ohai there, yuletide reveal. (See, I did eventually stop procrastinating.)
Title: Such stuff as dreams are made on Fandom: Sanctuary Pairing/Characters: Kate Freelander, Kate/Will Rating: R Summary: Kate watches Will watching her. Disclaimer: Not mine. A/N: Originally posted here for the yuletide 2010 fic exchange, for beth_soprano.

After staring at my 'Tis Pity lines until I was sure my eyeballs were going to somehow set the script on fire, and stressing myself out over various aspects of my life, I decided that what I really needed to do was indulge in some really absurd drabble-ish ficcing. Proceed with caution.
Title: This Mortal Coil Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist, Twilight Pairing/Characters: Edward Elric, Edward Cullen Summary: Ed encounters a living statue. A really annoying living statue.
Title: How The Ghost of You Clings Fandom: Avatar: The Last Airbender Pairing/Characters: Mai, hints of Mai/Zuko Summary: Cultural Revolution AU. Life in the countryside, or something like it. (Originally part of a longer, ridiculously bleak Katara/Zuko/Mai-ish fic that I never finished.)
If you recall, for the creative component of my final project in Joyce/Beckett, I wrote about Hamlet characters in the style of Joyce (or tried to, at any rate) - specifically, patterned after the seventh chapter of Ulysses, "Aeolus." Just now, I thought to myself, "Well, if I wrote fic for class, I might as well share it." (Hey, at least I'm not subjecting you guys to the ten-page essay on Beckett and postcolonialism.)
Also, if you squint just a little, I totally worked in Stacy's prompt about Laertes sleeping with Hamlet to keep Hamlet from sleeping with Ophelia.
Title: Aeolus Fandom: Hamlet Pairing/Characters: Ensemble, (hints at) various pairings. Rating: R Summary: Horatio mourns, Claudius hides, Laertes bargains, Gertrude hopes, and the Ghost waits. Warnings: Pretentious attempts at using a really bizarre writing style. Disclaimer: It's Shakespeare's! And uh, Joyce's, sort of.
You know, the more written work I need to do for class, the more inspired I get to work on writing for pleasure. (Also, the more I journal, it seems.) I really kind of want to try my hand at Stacy's Hamlet!fic request, and Avatar AU gen with OT3ish overtones where Mai, Katara, and Zuko meet during the Cultural Revolution, and stupid Mai/Zuko college AU, and that Ouran/Avatar fusion that I've owed meredyd for forever and a half. It's mildly problematic. (And fine, maybe more Qmi AU, evaporate. Maybe.)
Whatever, I've actually just gotten a decent amount of work done on this history paper, and have finally figured out what I'm going to do both my critical and creative projects for Joyce/Beckett on, so I don't feel too guilty.
Title: Sixth Sin Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist Pairing/Characters: Ed/Winry Rating: R Summary: Ed envies Winry her gifts too. Disclaimer: Not mine.
