[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.

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 thinkā€”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

Not totally back on the horse, but definitely making more progress again. Everything that needed a final edit before going to beta has been edited and sent, yay, plus I found a somewhat reasonable (pre-slash which I didn't really want but I'm a good 2k away from a better stopping point I think, and I'm already writing up stuff to go after it anyway) spot to stop and post my expanding AU gift box fic for needy-list purposes. Also added another 1k of assorted snippets to start building out the structure for the rest of it. So I'm happy with that. Still can't concentrate enough to get it all flowing smoothly, but it'll be easier to go back and fill the blanks next week/before reveals, and it's also giving me a better gauge on a minimum length that won't feel like I've had to cut it short, so that's good.

ETA: almost forgot the best bit, I hit the minimum progress goal for September today in the process of those snippets! So I'm three weeks ahead right now, and crossing fingers I can grow and maintain that so I can put inkingitout goals aside entirely in November to focus on Nano.

Also combed through the [community profile] trickortreatex tagset and started working out what my requests will be, and did my Yuletide noms, yay. This will be my first ToT, and argh I have too many fandoms and not enough spots, boo. What stuff are you all signing up for/signed up for/looking forward to lately? Pimp things in the comments!

Well, here I come again to talk about Katsugeki/Touken Ranbu's 11th episode, which honestly broke my heart AGAIN. Ufotable doesn't wastes time in making their viewers suffer, and while Katsugeki started to get serious from episode 5 and foward and emotional from episode 9 and foward, it's in "THIS" episode in particular that you genuinely want to cry your eyes out. It even left me wonder that, since Touken Ranbu is a game developed by Nitroplus and they had an input in this anime series, if Butch Gen is uncredited-ed behind this, specially in certain scene near the end that sounded like a very Urobuchi-ish conversation, in my opinion.

Attempting to sneak up on a fully fleshed out version of my latest gift box fic. Failing, and making more stumbling progress than I'd like instead. However, I do have at least another 1k down today, so slow and steady. Maybe with any luck I'll keep adding to it across the afternoon, too. (Edit: already added another 600 words so I think I definitely spoke too soon *pokes at muses in an insistent and irritating fashion*)

What I do have so far is definitely coming together well. I think when you make yourself giggle as you write it's an excellent sign, but it's also threatening to be rather long and involved. If it keeps up at this pace, I think I have enough time to get it all together and polished. With a little luck I might even find a better stopping place sooner so there's enough to post to help shift them off the needy list while I wrap it up fully. But also... big. Involved. AU. To write with a deadline.

Fun! But also, ack, what have I done?

So in order to escape for a while of all the angst of the last episodes of Katsugeki/Touken Ranbu, I decided to start watching one of the series I had pending on my "Must watch list", and this series is Little Witch Academia, which has been described by many as "Harry Potter but in a female-exclusive school". Yesterday, I watched the two first episodes on Netflix and I LOVE IT. I REALLY LOVE IT. I admit that, after all the angsty male-centric Katsugeki, the much more lighthearted and female-centric Academia was a nice change at least for now, I don't know if it will turn angsty in the next episodes, and the premise of "All-Girl-Hogwarts" completely caught my attention from the beginning.

Synopsis: In a time when magic is on the decline amid society, Atsuko Kagari is a cheerful girl who enters Luna Nova Academy in order to accomplish her dream of becoming a witch like her idol, Shiny Chariot. Shiny Chariot is a famous witch who disappeared from public view many years ago. On her way to school, Kagari meets the kind Lotte Yanson and the mischevious Sucy Manbavaran and the three become friends as they share a bedroom in campus. At the academy, Atsuko soon discovers she is in serious disadvantage compared to the other girls since she doesn`t come from a magical family and is required to learn the magical curriculum from scratch. Having found an item that once belonged to Chariot, Atsuko must discover how to activate and properly use the mysterious Shiny Rod as she hopes it might lead to finding out what has truly happened to her vanished idol.

Slightly less slow day. I completed a full editing pass on my next-due fic. It still needs beta edits worked in before reveals, but it's markedly less hit-by-a-bus than before so that's a definite improvement on barely achieving alibi levels of editing. Also added a few hundred new words to expand a few key points in the process, so there's that, too.

Plus I got down the first scene for my last pre-needy-list [community profile] fandomgiftbox fic, so yay the epic drafting continues!

Another slow day for me with just a touch of editing for alibi purposes. I did, however, finish Gotham S3 which was totally eating my brain (Tabithaaa!) so maybe now I'll get back some brainspace to think about other fandoms again, heh.
