Time for the end of year fanwork round up! I wrote nothing but Life on Mars fan fiction this year, and man did I enjoy the heck out of it. It wasn't until I started compiling this list that I actually realized how MUCH I wrote-- right around 40,000 words in all! Not bad, considering the first LoM fic I *ever* posted was near the end of December 2012.

There are two works here that are still in progress (noted below), but one is a Christmas fic that is just about ready to wrap and the other-- that damn infuriating but much loved BOXING FIC-- has one chapter remaining, which I hope to cap off soon. Then I'll really be feeling proud! In any case, below the cut are links to the (count 'em!) nine Life on Mars fics I wrote this year in vaguely chronological order, plus a bonus of two cracky fan art pieces that also occurred. :D

Watch me go!Collapse )

Vacation... again?

So somehow, due to an accident of timing and my company being overly generous with paid time off but wanting it all used up before the busier part of the 4th quarter hits, I've ended up with yet another week of vacation to burn. It started today, with a perfect balance of productivity and abject laziness.

I woke up this morning mentally composing sentences related to my long suffering Sam/Gene boxing fic , so I quickly brewed some coffee and started poking at that for awhile. I think I have a very good chance of finishing it up this week-- something I've wanted to do for a long time now. :D

What else... Ah, of course. Speaking of fic, on my last vacation (which was, let's see, LAST WEEK LOL) I did successfully complete and post my entry for ficathon 2013 over at the lifein1973 comm. Was pretty pleased with how it came out, and it's been fun checking out the other entries! I've got another fic on the go related to one of my unused ficathon prompts, so that might pop up sometime soon, too. It involves an interesting meeting between Gene and kid!Sam. <3

Took an accidental nap this afternoon and woke up wanting to listen to Metallica very loudly. Not sure what this portends concerning the remainder of my enforced vacation, but I'm sure it will be interesting regardless.

In other news, the lovely gilescandy has given me the first episode of Anthony Head's newest project, You, Me, & Them to watch. Am feeling pretty relaxed and unmotivated at the moment, so I might have to pop that on and see what it's all about.

Feel free to poke at me this week, as I won't be getting up to anything much!

blame neil!

Feeling a little out of sorts today; I'm sure it allllllll must be Neil's fault...


Click here for whining >:(Collapse )

On the good side of things, I finished my entry for the ficathon! Wheeeeeeeeeeee and Yayyyyyyyyy for the ficathon! I ended out just over 9,000 words, which sounds scary but really isn't I *promise*. ^_~

Also earlier today I managed to type the dreaded 'p-word' (*uses index finger only* PUMPKIN) without making it look like someone had just puked on my keyboard. Progress indeed!

Wheeeee, I'm on vacation this week! I have a very very short list of things to do:

1. Attend the weekly lifein1973 chat, since I've missed it due to work for the past several weekends. >_<
2. Finish LoM ficathon entry (up to 3,000 words now!).
3. Finish second fic based on LoM ficathon prompts... (yes I really really did).
4. NOT watch any more Breaking Bad until #2 and #3 are completed!
5. Avoid tumblr (now renamed timesucklr after a convo with littleotter73) procrastination.
6. Once ficcy tasks are completed, catch up on fic/art/etc that I've missed recently due to wacky times and overwork. ^_^
7. Drink wine!
8. Cook a bunch of tasty food!
9. Celebrate boyfriend's birthday!
10. Go to the DMV. This is last on the list because who the f*** wants to go to the DMV? :P

So yeah. I'll be around a lot this week on Skype and other social media, but I might be hiding in the name of fan fictional progress. Just imagine me behind this screen, drinking tea and bashing my face against the keyboard because my thesaurus won't give me the word I need. Hopefully not simultaneously, as that could prove rather messy.

It seems like the only time I remember to make an LJ entry is when I've just returned from vacation. Ah well, feel free to check for randomness involving vacation, fandom, actual book reading, and other random topics below the following cuts... ^_^

Rebel reads a sci-fi novelCollapse )
Speaking of fic and fandom in general...Collapse )

That seems to be about all I can manage to ramble about at the moment. Here's hoping everyone has been well, and wishing plenty of good luck with current life and fandom projects!

Oh my gosh look. What is that thing? NO, DON'T COME ANY CLOSER! Oh wait, it's just me actually making an LJ post. :P

I suppose an update on my goings-on would be a good idea... nothing terribly exciting, just work and life as usual for the most part, but it has been a lonnnnnng time since my last entry!

Major events? Hmm. Well, at the end of March I visited bratflorida down in (dun dun dunnnnnn) Florida. That's about all I've been up to on the travel front, and we had a BLAST. Fandom meetups are special; when else could you ever be that happy that someone gave you old magazines for your birthday, or stay up until 4am drinking Scotch and talking about Life on Mars fan fiction? Brat even made me an EASTER BASKET. With bunny ears to wear and everything. *sobs with joy*

Similarly, I myself received a visit from the intrepid littleotter73 last week. We survived a bout with severe drunkenness, an actual tornado, and a broken MacBook Pro (only loosely related to the previous two events). Once those obstacles were dealt with, we spent the rest of the week being indulgent and eating everything in sight-- we went to Ravenswood, The Algonquin (while visiting Lake George along with my mom, who was happy to be dragged along for the ride), Sakura Sushi House, Dinosaur Barbeque, and Wheatfields Bistro. We also cooked at home a bit and went to a small rooftop dinner party thrown by one of my besties. Repeated visits to the Apple Store aside, it was quite a fun week! Local wine shops may need a small amount of time to recover stock levels, but we can't blame The Otter for that. ^_~

On the fic front, I just finished a Life on Mars five-parter. It's a series of shorts themed around shirts worn by Gene Hunt throughout the series. The stories aren't connected by anything but the shirt-y theme, and there's a bit of everything going on (gen, het, slash, angst, fluff, etc). It's posted at AO3 in complete form: Five Shirts @ AO3 or at the LJ comm in individual parts: White, Green, Yellow, Blue, and Pink. Response to the last part has been a bit... slow, so far. Pretty sure it's mainly a combination of bad timing and people being really busy, but I've been moping pathetically about it anyway (it's true) since I was so excited it was done. Maybe feedback will pick up a bit on the weekend!

Speaking of AO3, I did finally start using it and spending some time browsing through fic there. Seems like it's the place to be, these days.

Next in fic land I want to finish up a quick one that I started writing last weekend, which is basically a tag for Life on Mars episode 1x6 involving Gene/Annie-in-a-nurse's-uniform. It was originally meant to be PWP of sorts, but ended up including a journey through Gene's youth with a very small side order of history lessons about the National Health Service. Why yes, I will do nearly anything to justify the conditions for smut. -_-

After that, it's going to be mutli-fandom WiP cleanup time. I've got things that need finishing in BtVS, State of Play, and Life on Mars, and I want to spend some effort on those before beginning anything new. So if I left you hanging on a work in progress... sorry about that. I really am going to try and get that sorted. *smiles angelically*

That's all, I guess! Hope everyone's having a great summer so far! ^_^

Okay, not really. I did write a Life on Mars fic, though! :P

Title: Beyond
Author: rebelxxwaltz ('s me)
Rating: It's M, Brown Cortina, full of inappropriate amounts of Gene/Annie angst!sex. *smirks mildly*
Pairing: Gene/Annie, with mentions of Sam/Annie and a few oblique hints of Gene/Sam.
Summary: Sam is gone. How will Gene and Annie deal with the aftermath as Christmas and the new decade approach? A slightly holiday themed post-series exploration.
Warnings: Series spoilers, Ashes to Ashes spoilers of some variety, smutty stuff, LoM Gene wearing some of A2A Gene's clothes (I think that deserves a warning).
Word Count: The whole thing is just under 9,000 words, and COMPLETE in two parts.

Part One
Part Two

Pairing: Della Smith/DCI Bell
Fic Summary: Della and Bell continue their information sharing arrangement after the Collins scandal wraps up. As they work together, their emerging friendship is threatened by mutual attraction and misunderstandings.

Spoilers: Yep. It's a short series, though. Haven't you watched it yet? Spoilers are easily avoided in this manner... :P
Notes: This one took me awhile, partly because it was extremely hard to write. These two are just such idiots, I swear. You will see what I mean. I didn't spend as much time as usual in the editing phase, so please let me know if I missed any errors. More notes at the bottom for those who enjoy babbling!

I'm about to lose my worried mind...Collapse )

Rating: M rated. Yep.
Fandom: State of Play (2003).
Pairing: Della Smith/DCI Bell
Fic Summary: Della and Bell continue their information sharing arrangement after the Collins scandal wraps up. As they work together, their emerging friendship is threatened by mutual attraction and misunderstandings.

Disclaimer: I do not own State of Play or any of the characters. I do own my fun little theories, my wild assumptions, and lots of delicious chunks of head canon.
Spoilers: Yes, for the whole series.
Notes: There was supposed to be plotty things happening in this chapter, but the characters would not cooperate. Therefore, what we have is basically fluff. With a little extra smut. And some cuteness. Della and Bell better not get used to this treatment! More notes at the bottom, as usual (you guys know I can't keep my mouth shut for long)!

Never as tired as when I'm waking up...Collapse )
