e.g. I was very pleased to get my Yuletide assignment, but I'm now in the staring-down-the-barrel phase before actually writing. Close-to-canon fic in an almost untouched fandom with a canon-author who's one of my faves? How in hell'd I get myself into that one? *deep breaths*
Life's been...complicated. Mum's having a rehab medical sort-out which is good (a half-treated pneumonia wasn't helping, it turns out), but tiring as I have to take her to and fro to the hospital as a day-patient each day - she stayed there the first night and melted down into a terrified puddle which I was treated to by phone thanks to a nurse hooking her up then leaving her alone to sob brokenly into it. Due to refusing to let that go on, I think I'm seen as "difficult" now, but fuck it. The care's fairly variable - some staff are very good, others not so great. The food's uniformly crap. [do not read if about to eat dinner] Revolting pudding today was very weakly chocolate-flavored gloop with tasteless tapioca spheres glistening in it like toadspawn, served warm. The soup was mud-thick - a spoon stood up in it. We won't talk about the "fish pie".
I made a few things, anyway. I'm still noodling around in SGA, as you can see...
Stargate Atlantis, Elementary (TV) crossover for Into-a-Bar
Fading Jennifer Keller/Rodney McKay, pre-slash John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. Alfredo Llamosa meets Rodney in an SF bar.
Teen And Up, drug addiction content, but no other warnings apply.
Cover Art for the podfic of "Turn Into Something Beautiful" (art) (the fic's by blackchaps , Podfic's by librarychick_94 )
M/M and NC-17 for the fic, no warnings for the art. Cougar!John !!! (yay)
Rodney McKay/John Sheppard (art is SFW and Gen)
It's a great story and the podfic's really excellent - I highly recommend both of them!
Hi There (art)
Rodney McKay/John Sheppard in bed, about to kiss.
Teen And Up. No warnings really, but a mildly suggestive shoulder. Bit of silly messing about in photoshop.
Prodigals (The Hard Prayer remixed) (fic)
Stargate Atlantis, M/M, Rodney McKay/John Sheppard.
Teyla Emmagan, Evan Lorne, Ronon Dex, John Sheppard, Rodney McKay, Miko Kusanagi, Simpson, Carson Beckett, Elizabeth Weir, Radek Zelenka, Halling, Bates.
Community: Apocalypse Kree, rated Gen.
Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings - but it's apocafic of course. What happened with the Atlantis expedition without John and Rodney.
So, the meme. I journal so rarely that I don't imagine many people will want to play, but I'll give it a go.
Pick a date in December and give me a topic to chat about - anything's fine, fannish or non-fannish.
2. How did you come to SGA and McShep?
11. Is there a difference in the creative process between writing and art?
19. Is there a story or piece of art that you want really badly but don't want to make? Who would you want to write it/art it for you, if you had your pick?
20. Favorite kinds of AU?
21. Talk about characters and their first kisses!
26. Seasons - if/how they affect you, which ones you like in different canons, what your favorite characters think of them, anything!
28. That trope you wish more ppl would write/pop up in the canon proper.
