[community profile] auexchange was revealed, and I wrote:

Whiskey and Mirrors (1999 words) by shopfront
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Graphic Depictions Of Violence
Relationships: Mirror Ezri Tigan/Jadzia Dax
Characters: Quark, Mirror Miles O'Brien, Mirror Ezri Dax, Rom (Star Trek)
Additional Tags: Time Travel, Mirror Universe, Flirting
Summary: Ezri Tigan tries a little more universe hopping in service of the rebellion, but a technical malfunction derails her plans when it sends her spinning back in time.

Which is just another reminder that I need Deep Space Nine icons, yeesh. But I am also very amused that I ended up writing and receiving DS9 fic, and if I had more time I would totally celebrate with a rewatch. Because oh Trek of my heart.

So far today I've added 500 words to my Helen/Will WIP and spent some time re-constructing the (well, a fairly similar, I think) scene by scene structure that I had set up in the old scrivener file that was lost in the crash. It was really nice to work on something just because rather than because there's a deadline starting to loom. I often forget the joy of fannish creation when you can take time to slowly let it grow to it's potential, which is not better or worse but very different from the joy of seeing what I can craft in a certain time frame and within prompt restrictions.

I also completed edits on one of my giftbox fics, so only four more to go. I have two more sets of beta comments waiting for me to work them into their respective fics that I'm hoping to get to today as well, but we'll see how it goes. Both need some re-writing rather than just tweaks, and I slept terribly and have a headache and bah. Monday. But I really do need to get to them sooner than later before the deadline sneaks up on me.... I'll also be obsessively stalking last minute trick or treat sign ups throughout the day of course, heh.

Not a lot of words, but I've picked out potential treat worthy prompts from the [community profile] trickortreatex sign ups so far and did a zero draft for one that grabbed me the most. It's also starting to get proper chilly finally and I am pleased that autumn is here, hee, so good day all round.

It's time for another question thread!

The rules:

- You may ask any dev-related question you have in a comment. (It doesn't even need to be about Dreamwidth, although if it involves a language/library/framework/database Dreamwidth doesn't use, you will probably get answers pointing that out and suggesting a better place to ask.)
- You may also answer any question, using the guidelines given in To Answer, Or Not To Answer and in this comment thread.

Earlyish post after a lateish one, so please feel free to checkin for two days in one place if that's easier for you (or multiple comments are always welcome, of course.) Had some enforced quiet lazing time this morning while my partner slept in, and it resulted in the best possible brainwave about my original nano concept. I'd been toying with urban fantasy set in London, but I was a bit worried I'd get bogged down in details and research if I wasn't careful which is obviously the opposite of what you want for nano, but the most perfect fictional city compromise came to me this morning so I guess I'm going full fantasy after all.

Still torn on how to track nano words though (knowing I'll have all or most of 50k coming down the pipeline will totally derail my writing motivation for everything else if I add them to my total, I just know it, but also - it's not November yet), so tentatively some goal words in the form of drafting up the concept, but that I may subtract later, so. *helpless hands*

Progress in either case, anyway, and I'm super excited to start writing this idea out now. Though I still need a proper plot to drop on top of my character, relationship, and now setting sketches. Dear November, please continue to take your time getting here...

Wrote just enough to neatly tie up my last giftbox fic, yay (and if anyone wants to beta a 4k no superheroes fake dating Ray/Mick AU, y'know, just holler.) I was hoping to sink my teeth into editing some of my earlier giftbox fics, but brain says nope too much hard thinking about fandom lately you have a headache go lie down. So I'm gonna go lie down.

But yay, I figured out a way to not let this baby spiral! It needs one last fleshing out pass before a proper edit, and there's so many spots where I would love to write out a whole additional fic of ideas, but it's whole and coherent and yup. That'll do, pig, that'll do.

I want to take one last look at the needy list, but I suspect that will be my actual last. There were a few other good prompts I was considering, but every letter that grabbed me super hard I've written something for, and I'm already up to like 11k or something ridiculous, so. Maybe time to move back to treats and other assignments and WIPs, I think. But oh, I've had a lot of fun here. There's still time left if anyone wants to and hasn't checked it out - [community profile] fandomgiftbox

No goal words, but I'm roughly half way through pulling together my Trick or Treat letter/sign up and that's... enough. I might need to instigate a rule next year of just doing the same exchanges so I can just repeat this years sign ups and only tweak which request got filled this year. Even when I repeat fandoms, there's still somehow always too much tweaking depending on pairing/gen/length requirements, and I have epic letter fatigue oh god.

[community profile] auexchange has been revealed, go check out the fics! And while you're there, check out the super amazing soul bonding fic of my heart oh my god gift that I received:

the gift we cannot destroy (5791 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Julian Bashir/Elim Garak
Characters: Julian Bashir, Elim Garak
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Soulmates, Soulmate-Identifying Marks, Soul Bond, Misunderstandings, 5 Times
Summary: Julian has no soulmark. He knows what that must mean, and he's learned to accept it. Meeting Garak, getting to know him, is almost enough to make him think—but it's not possible. Garak must have a soulmate, and there's simply no way it could be Julian. Right?

(Or: five times Julian thought he was alone, plus the time he realized he'd been wrong all along.)


Seriously, if you like silly aliens dancing around each other, and intensely suppressed feelings, and misunderstandings, and delightful endings, and AUs with delightful ripple effects on the plot, and the most amazing adorable soulbonding fic you could ever imagine occurring on Deep Space Nine, you will like this one.

I'm just going to be over here obsessively re-reading it with hearts in my eyes. But seriously. Check it out. omg *flaps hands excitedly* also why don't I have a smug happy Garak icon already jeez
