I feel that one of my New Year's resolutions should be to NOT be a horrible replier to comments (seriously, i was just going through FC Chapter 24 comment, and realized that all of them had been there SINCE THE END OF AUGUST. That is un-acceptable).

My only defense is that October and November were both insane and Ch. 25 has taking up December's let's-get-FC-stuff-done brainpower (let's be honest, September was just normal procrastination...or something so horrible that I've blocked my memory of it, not sure which). It's not a good defense, but at least it's honest.

I hope you guys are doing great, and aren't too weirded out by getting replies from ages and ages ago. And if I've MISSED replying to something, please be aware that I think you are cool, I just suck at replying. But I should work on that.

The end! *she says decisively*
Title: All You Think You See (Are Two Guys in a Cemetery)
Author: brosedshield
Disclaimer:Don't own, don't profit
Characters: Lucifer (possessing Sam), Michael (possessing Adam, but let's be honest, he has no lines so basically just the implied presence of Michael)
Warnings: brotherly angst and thinly veiled grumpy headcanon
Rating: PG-13
Word count: ~1200
Spoilers: S5.22 "Swan Song"
Summary: A little glimpse into Lucifer's head during Swan Song. Also known as my personal headcanon that it wasn't just two guys in a cemetery.
Beta Credit: Once upon a time lavinialavender saw it, but that was a long time ago, I make no promises that I have not destroyed the good work she did.
Author notes: I wrote this actual-facts ages ago when the episode actually aired, but the attempt to make it a complete story with all the parts has failed. SO HERE, you see my semi-grumpy headcanon (S5 was rough, guys, rough in the best ways, and I miss it).

The weedy little Lawrence, Kansas cemetery didn’t look like the kick-off line for the Apocalypse, but Lucifer and Michael showed up right on time in the denim and Winchester dress code.Collapse )

Nanowrimo 2013: Nov 2

Hi guys. So, vanishing, this is apparently what I do. The Marvel Bang I last mentioned in June went out with a whimper (though I still have all my notes and outlines, but it simply wasn't going to get done and at a certain point I decided that attempting it was going to burn me out faster than it would result in rewards). It's been nice looking at all the fics that have flowered from it, though. Seriously, if you enjoy Marvel-ness, check out marvel_bang.

I have already signed up for my next writing project, and I hope to God (praying is good, so maybe I should be doing that more) that I can do it because I REALLY WANT TO.

It's Nano. Nanowrimo, that is. But instead of writing a new novel, I'm focusing on Spacefic because that baby has been sitting around on my computer since last summer and it's damn good and I want to write it. And I SHOULD write it. But there's always the little questions of time, focus, and motivation.
Authorial wibbling, and also an overview of Spacefic for those who may be interested and have not yet heard of itCollapse )
That is all for now, but also, I am brosedshield on Nanowrimo as well, if anyone wants (and knows how...I'm still somewhat confused, though that may be because I haven't tried as hard as i would have to) to find me :)

Happy noveling! (whether or not you are actually writing anything doesn't have anything to do with this salutation, btw. Happy living, in any case.
And So, I don't know if I've mentioned it here (sorry, I've been Tumblring lately, and working, so LJ has somewhat fallen to the wayside...I still check! But clearly I haven't been writing things...then again, did I do all that much before?

Good news! Work is good, but busy (it's the kind of job where the contract says "will work SOME nights and weekends", and then you have a good excuses to laugh). Work on The Monster progresses slowly (see above, with the working MANY nights and MOST weekends). Also moving into my new apartment. Yes, I know, I've been here since December, but I'm STILL moving in. It takes far longer to move into a place than I expected. Maybe because historically, my idea of "moving in" to a place was cramming my clothes in the available drawers, putting my computer on the desk, getting sheets on the bed, and spreading the rest of whatever I may have over the most convenient floor space. I've DONE that. :P Maybe "settling in" would be a more accurate phrase. I have the dream of having a place for everything and everything in it's place, but until that seems like an actual possibility, it's so much easier to surf Tumblr (and so much more fun to write and eat) in the evenings.

BUT! I have also signed up for a new thing, the marvel_bang, because it looked like fun, I had an idea, and it would be dearly nice to FINISH something (A Monster By Any Other Name clearly desires to be Shogun-length before it stops growing; Spacefic* has stalled from lack of time and an idea generator that has skipped to a species-collision sequel, and is more fascinated with the world than getting Natl and Jaron from point Yeah, you're cute but I'm busy to romance novel; Happyland (which I had vague ideas about revising) is stalled stillborn because, jeesh, I have to REVISE A LOT*).

I'm excited and nervous about my story so far, which is an Avengers High School AU. I have an outline and words written! But I'm really really nervous too.

In which there is much authorial wibbling about plot, characterization, and OH SHIT why am I experimenting with a new POV style on a deadline? Oh, right because otherwise I probably never will...Collapse )

~*~Footnotes, because I'm just that awesome (or that weird)Collapse )
Title: Saint Christopher Ain't Real No More
Author: brosedshield

Word count: 878
Spoilers: Teen Wolf S2.9 "Party Guessed" and SPN Pilot + general background (do you know who the Campbells are? Then you're good)
Summary: The first time Chris Argent met Victoria Campbell, he fell in love. Maybe because she was beautiful, badass, brave, vicious. Maybe because she felt like family (like that same old madness).
Beta Credit: YAY lavinialavender.
Author notes: I've wanted an Argent/Campbell crossover for a while, so I finally wrote one. This is also a character study of Chris Argent, because he is my favorite (of the secondary characters) because he's so SANE. That's really not normal for a hunter...

The first time Chris met Victoria Campbell he fell in love...though he wouldn't have told her that...Collapse )

That's Kind of the Definition (SPN, S7)

Title: That’s Kind of the Definition

Summary: Sam needs pain to drive Lucifer out of his head. It comes to the point where Dean realizes that he has certain skills that might be of use.
Beta Credit: Yay lavinialavender!
Author notes: I wrote the mini-poem that starts this out too! Because I truly thought that I’d heard some poem somewhere that would make my title make sense, but couldn’t find it so improvised. //random thoughts//

        Hurting the one that you love
          Because that’s what you need,
          Because that’s what you want,
          Because you can’t stop:
          That’s kind of the definition of hell.

Dean comes into their latest crap hotel—really crap this time: holes in the walls, roaches in the holes, hell knows what’s in the roaches—and Sam’s hunched at the mini-table with his head almost touching the bloody fake-wood and a bloody knife on the floor.Collapse )
Title: Same Old Burnt Sugar

Warnings: self-hatred, eating disorder, implied violence (and violent imagery), sensory descriptions of illness

Spoilers: I have stolen all the backstory from the movie, but the story DOESN’T spoil the plot of the movie itself (the author's notes might).
Summary: The one where Hansel can’t stand the smell (taste, thought) of sugar and Gretel holds him up (or maybe they support each other)
Beta Credit: lavinialavender and whereupon are the most fantastic always *hugs them tight* even when they are suddenly reading a fic without either one seeing the movie :) As always, mistakes that remain are mine.
Author notes: More (somewhat movie-spoilery) notes at the end.

The village of Schwinburg had a witch and a sweetshop. Collapse )

Author's commentary/notesCollapse )
GUYS GUYS GUYS, I've written WORDS!!

Written and edited and POSTED (sorry I'm so excited but it feels like it's been forever that I've done something SHORT [the entirety of FC doesn't count so much because even the small Chapters are larger than most everything I posted in my life soooo....]).

Summary: John deals with his emotions with the same unhealthy coping mechanisms Winchesters have used for generations. It's not a lot of comfort, but he'll take what he can get. (Notes at the end)
Beta Thanks: You are awesome lavinialavender and whereupon. Without you all writings would kind of curl up and never see the light of day.

Story here (at freac_camp)
Hi guys, I promise I'm not dead. Just may seem that way sometimes with how often (that is, not) I've been...doing anything here.

This weekend there were vague plans to write and edit and catch up on comments over at freac_camp, all of which I have been COMPLETELY TERRIBLE at, but instead I stress cooked. I'm not 100% certain what I've been stressed about, but I started off Friday night attacking a Bota-box of wine, watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and made chicken pasta, chicken soup, and mushroom stuffing to go in croquetas. Saturday, I stared into space, hit church, hit my staff party, and then came home and went to bed. And then today I made tapioca pudding, a tortilla, and homemade curry with rice while finishing S1 Buffy the Vampire slayer, and the proceeded to clean EVERYTHING (everything made of tile or formica at least) and I still feel like I SHOULD BE DOING SOMETHING.

In about...now, I'm off to my youth group big night, which...may very well be the source of the anxiety. Anyway, last week was crazy busy, and this weekend it's been hard enough to sit still enough to check my email (which is by itself rather unnerving) but I'm hoping that tonight/this week there will be more time in general to reconnect and thank people and...yes. Communicating would be good again.

Hope you see you all soon, and prove that I'm alive, as opposed to it generally just being understood.



It's up! It's up! (at last at last, you get to READ our pretty pretty little Chapter :D :D)
