So I recently realised that I never posted my Yuletide fics on LJ/DW. I suppose I should catch up on them now, before too much time has gone by!

The first one is my Yuletide assignment, for [personal profile] astolat.

Hello all!

Livejournal's latest cock-up has meant that I'm going to make my Dreamwidth account more than a place-holder. I'll still keep my Livejournal account, and I have cross-posting set up, but depending on how things go, Dreamwidth may become my new hub.

I'm NOT going to post all of my old fic in back-dated entries, as the amount of work that would take seems truly staggering (ETA: Thanks to [personal profile] kainosite, I have discovered the importer tool, so my LJ entries should be imported soon.) But all of my fic can be found at my AO3 account.

If we're friends on LJ and you'd like to be friends on Dreamwidth as well, comment and let me know! I look forward to rebuilding a community on here, if that's what has to be done.

Oh, LJ, why so stupid...
zaubra: (sunshine through hair)
In an attempt to get writing again, I'm snagging this meme from [livejournal.com profile] astolat.

Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you between one and three sentences from that story.

Have at me!

(Also, in completely unrelated news, I saw Peter Capaldi in The Ladykillers last night! It was AMAZING. I was in the eighth row, and I mostly managed to keep my eyes on the action and not glued to his gorgeousness the entire time. Mostly.)
zaubra: (laughing in the sunshine)
Hello, dearest person! If we have been matched, I love you already. This is my first year doing Yuletide, and I'm so very excited. You're already my very favourite person for volunteering to write in one of my fandoms, and your story will make my Christmas a wonderful one indeed. <333

If you already have an idea and don't need any more input, feel free to disregard the rest of this letter! But if you'd like a little more insight into me and my requests (a tradition I'm told is a very Yuletide one), read on.

General notes: I love all kinds of fic – gen, slash, het, femslash, three(+)somes. Whichever way your muse takes you is fine (although I'd love it if the story wasn't entirely PWP). <3

Things I love: established relationships, first times, the Bechdel test, fingering, awkwardness, teasing, snark, kissing, characters with plans, characters with plans that go wrong, worldbuilding, magic, working through problems, pegging, domesticity, happy endings.

Things I’d rather not see: character-bashing (I adore all of the characters I've nominated), scat, torture, bestiality, under-age sex, incest, non-con.

On to the fandoms and requests!

Yuletide )

Hopefully this letter has helped you learn a little more about me! If you have any burning questions, you could ask [livejournal.com profile] kainosite, who I think knows pretty much what I like. ;)

Oh, if you want to look at some of my fics, there are quite a few of them. My AO3 hub is here. Here are five somewhat representative samples:

1) In Another Life - In parallel realities, three Yvettes try to stay sane and solve a mystery. [many pairings]
2) The Lights of Aeterna (Doctor Who) - A rare example of a non-lolitics fic from me. River and two Doctors. [River/Eleven, River/Eleven/Ten]
3) Laurus Nobilis - Of talking and not-talking, love and work, gags and bay leaves. [Chris Bryant/Jared Cranney]
4) The Princess of Zock - Tony Blair is abducted by aliens. Cracky. [Tony Blair/Gordon Brown, Tony Blair/OFC]
5) Fucking with Miliband - Ed Balls finds out that once upon a time Ed Miliband slept with his wife. Well, fair's fair. [Ed Balls/Yvette Cooper/Ed Miliband]

Thank you again so VERY VERY much for writing me a Yuletide fic. You are my favourite person in all the world, and I can't wait until Christmas! <333

Finally, I've managed to write that last fic for my 50-fic party that I've been putting off for weeks. (You can tell just how long by the fact that it was for my 50-fic party, but I'm up to 85 now.) I'm SO sorry, whoever asked for this. I kept meaning to write it, but my muse just wouldn't cooperate! But now here it is, and I hope you enjoy it. <33

So the plot bunny I mentioned last night seems to be a go. At least, I've worked out all the timelines and personalities and at least some of the plot threads, and written the first major scene (which is 2200 words, fml).

The question is - would anyone be interested in sort of reading along with me as I write it? You wouldn't need to do any too heavy beta-ing, although I'd always love any suggestions you had. I just...I'm used to writing and posting very quickly, and I'm afraid if I try to write this all out before anyone sees it I may lose interest halfway through and never finish it. I considered posting as I go - which is what I did with my previous two longfics, Charity and In Another Life - but I really want to keep open the option of editing earlier bits as I write later bits, which I always feel odd doing if the initial version is posted on the meme.

If this sounds at all like something you'd be interested in, let me know. The four main characters are 2010 intake Labour MPs, and there probably won't be much input from the coalition side at all (just fyi). I'd also be happy to show you the first bit and let you decide if this is something you'd want to keep doing.

*crosses fingers*

I tried to go to bed almost an hour ago, but snuggling under my duvet was interrupted by the sudden arrival of a plot bunny. Eventually I had to pick my laptop up and start writing it down and doing preliminary research.

Well, we'll see how I feel in the morning, but I really like this bunny. I've been a bit antsy lately, wanting to write something a bit plottier, with new characters, something that took a while to develop and had more complex threads. Most of the things I've been writing recently have been one-shots - and that format is fine, and I love it, but occasionally I just want to stretch myself a little bit?

Anyway, I am giving NOTHING away yet - like I said, this may all look ghastly in the morning - but I'm excited. :D

But David is frowning, and perhaps friends don't like seeing friends frown... Can also be found here at the meme.
