Long time, no see.

I am, in fact, alive. And term has begun again! I am excited because the summer was kind of desolate and boring and I need structure in my life.

And I, uh, have a request to make: I need help in finishing this thing that I've owed [livejournal.com profile] nightrider101 since the beginning of this year, because dammit I don't know how to go on, and what's more, my spn muse has completely run dry. So to any of you who are still avid fans and can instill me with your enthusiasm, I would appreciate anything from a cheerleader to a beta reader. It's about wings and profound bonds and also some problematic rips in reality that happen after the apocalypse-that-wasn't. I have a little over 7k written out of probably 10k total, which is way more than I was planning on doing, but apparently I'm incapable of writing anything less than weirdly convoluted plotty things or something? I think I'm going to post the first half of it very soon, with the hopes that this will pressure me into finishing the rest of it in something resembling a timely manner. But seriously, I keep staring at it, willing words to appear, but they just don't. So...yeah. Help?

On the flip side, though, I have been sucked into loving the Avengers hard core. I don't really read comics all that often, but I am totally behind the films and it's making me take Wikipedia crash courses on the the canon material like woah. Seriously, this movie has already ruined me, and it hasn't even come out yet. As a result, I am utterly lost to Steve/Tony right now. It's a disease, almost as bad as Charles/Erik, except worse because whereas Charles and Erik make me want to write them into badass adventures, Steve and Tony make me want to just read utter sap about how they made up after Civil War and got married and fought crime together. Argh. Stop it you bastards I hate you. Also my personal theme song for them is now 'Teenage Dream' because Tumblr is a terrible influence on me and I am a terrible person and it makes me laugh uncontrollably. STEVE IS TOTALLY TONY'S TEENAGE DREAM, DON'T DENY. Oh god this journal must never become connected to me in real life or I will have to change names and move to a different country again.

Bifurcation

Title: Bifurcation
Genre/Pairing: XMFC/Wanted fusion, Charles/Erik
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~9,500 (WHAT.)
Warnings: Spoilers for both movies.
Disclaimer: I own nothing, as usual.
Summary: The first thing Erik notices about Charles, after he’s gotten over the shock of there being someone, anyone who is in any way like Erik himself, is that metal hums around him.

A/N: FUCK YOU, X-MEN. FUCK YOU. I HAVE OTHER, WAY MORE IMPORTANT SHIT TO DO THAN THIS NONSENSE. How is it that I can churn out almost 10k in less than a week on this, and yet cannot get any of the work that I owe people done on time. I hate myself.

Anyway, this is is my contribution to the Wanted crossover subgenre, and is drawn from a couple of prompts, primarily this one from [livejournal.com profile] 1stclass_kink : "Charles has a killer in his head and he's not afraid to use him. Wesley doesn't mind letting Charles take the reigns in between the fun parts as long as he gets some action so it all works out. Cue BAMF!Charles/Wesley action!" and also this one from [livejournal.com profile] xmen_firstkink : "Charles has terrible insomnia. When he's "asleep"? He's Wesley Gibson (McAvoy from Wanted). Basically, we're talking Charles with Fight Club-style fugue states, and when he's not Charles, he's Wesley, complete with bullet bending, time slowing and rapid healing. And assassinating!"

Bifurcation )
On the flip side, I just need to turn everyone's attention for one moment to Texts from Xavier Academy. 

I think I'm actually crying from laughing so hard.

Sample: 


...anyway. I'ma go work on my thesis now.

FYI

I am alive! But my thesis is draining my life force like no other. It is frankly exhausting, and I totally do not feel smart enough to finish this project. Who knew that doctorate research would be so damned difficult? Grargharhgargh.

So to those awesome people who are waiting on their stories for [livejournal.com profile] help_japan, I assure you I am working on them. I am part of the way through one story, and have concept work done on the other. And for those waiting on 'On the Wings of War', I will post the penultimate chapter forthwith. It just needs some editing. And then I need to write the epilogue and then it will be done. Holy shit. Finally.

And lastly, I have a sudden burning desire to write an Aeon Flux AU for GenKill. Brad as Aeon, Nate as Trevor Goodchilde. Yes, I am aware that I am completely insane. Don't mind me. If it happens, it happens, but I may be full of lies. Lies and deceit. Because I definitely do not have time to write for pleasure right now.

Alice out.
Well, it has been a monstrous few weeks, for a number of reasons that I don't really feel like explaining in detail. Basically it was busy, research was good but tiring, and then bureaucracy exploded in my face and my entire week has been occupied with cleaning up the mess. 

But anyway! The fics for Japan are still up for grabs; I'm writing them for the top two bidders now, in case that adds some extra incentive. And I will try to write them in a timely manner, despite the madness that is my life!

In other news, Generation Kill has entirely consumed my fandom brain. I won't write for it, because I don't think I could, but I have devoured everything that is already around, and have come to the conclusion that the fandom actually subverts Sturgeon's Law. It is astounding. 

Anyway, that's all I've got. If I have to fill out any more paperwork for the next month, I will actually kill something. Or just crawl into a bottle of scotch and just stay there until it all goes away.
Due to paperwork problems and the fact that I don't know how to read directions on visa applications, I am unable to travel and therefore alone for the holidays. SADFACE.

Thus, I am counting on you, my f-list, to keep me entertained! No pressure or anything, guys. But seriously, I'm alone in the house, I have to finish writing this stupid thesis chapter, and I need procrastination material. Or well, I probably don't. But I'd like some anyway.

So, fic recs, anyone? Music I should check out? Random thoughts? Tell me about your lives, because nothing is happening in mine except academic writing and whatever's on the BBC. 

And in the meantime, here's something really cheesy and awful that's been sitting unfinished on my hard drive that my OCD compelled me to finish. And even though it's awful I'm totally counting it as a [livejournal.com profile] kissbingo  square--Time: old.


Title: Enamored
Genre and/or Pairing: Arthur/Cobb
Rating: PG
Warnings/Spoilers: None.
Word Count: ~1,200
Disclaimer: Entirely not mine. Just playin'.
Summary: Mal had known. She must have. Arthur hadn’t exactly been subtle.
