Fic spam

Mar. 19th, 2013 06:38 pm
I always forget to post here nowadays, so I thought I should at least link to some of the stuff I've written recently (or not so recently--I'm a bit pressed at the moment, so stories are scarce on the ground). So here! In case you're interested, have some stuff:

Clean Slate
Fandom: Skyfall
Genre/Pairing: Character Study, Gen
Word Count: 380
Rating: PG
Spoilers: For the whole film.
Summary: He shakes Mallory's hand and he feels...purged.

(I may or may not be working on a sequel to that one, but who knows when the hell that'll happen.)

Clint Barton and the Adventures of This, That, and the Whatsit
Fandom: Avengers
Genre/Pairing: Fun with robots!, Gen
Word Count: 3,125
Rating: PG
Spoilers: None
Summary: In which Clint is the John Connor of New York. Until he isn't.

(That one takes places in the Reflexes universe, but works as a standalone.)

Best Kept Secret
Fandom: Avengers
Genre/Pairing: Character Study/Silliness/Frondship, Steve/Tony, Tony & Natasha
Word Count: 11,404
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: None
Summary: In which there is a secret friendship, and Tony can’t deal with feelings, so Natasha has to do it for him. These two features may or may not be related.

That's it! I also have a million WIPs sitting around and I'm touching none of them because dear god, thesis.
Fandom: Marvel movies, Nolan!Batman, Avengers, Justice League-ish
Rating: PG for language
Word Count: 5,424
Pairing: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark, barely
Summary: In which Tony Stark went to boarding school with Bruce Wayne, and the road to becoming a superhero is not smooth.

Notes: This plays extremely fast and loose with chronology, canon, whatever. There are elements of Batman Begins, Dark Knight, and the Iron Man movies, but also has stuff from the comics and then randomly converges at some amalgam of the Avengers movie and the Justice League I-have-no-idea-what. There is a real sequence of events that makes sense—I made a timeline!—but it’s pretty extravagantly not accurate to any particular canon, and time between major events is dilated/contracted as needed to get said events to line up in a meaningful and fairly reasonable way. I claim artistic license?

Read it at AO3.

Title: Accidental Gift
Author: Alchemy Alice
Genre and/or Pairing: Canon!AU, Dean/Castiel
Word Count: ~6,000 (for this part)
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: Through season 5, and then goes off-book.
Warnings: Complete ignorance of seasons 6 and 7, and probably an unhealthy amount of (un)intended weapons-related innuendo.
Summary: The problem with angel swords was that humans knew fuck-all about them. Worse, the angels were no better. Meanwhile, some post-apocalyptic cracks in the fabric of reality needed mending.

A/N: This is the first half of a long, long overdue charity fic for [ profile] nightrider101--I am so fucking sorry this took so long (and will probably take a bit longer to finish, argh) but I really hope you enjoy where I took this. It probably didn't have to be so complicated, but apparently that's what my brain did (and didn't...again, argh) want to do. Many thanks also to [ profile] lemniciate also for taking a look at this and asking all the right questions about where the hell I was going with it. Your input was incredibly helpful!

Part I )
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 [ 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.
Title: On the Wings of War
Author: Alchemy Alice
Genre and/or Pairing: Action/Adventure/Horror, Dean/Castiel
Rating: R for violence
Warnings/Spoilers: Up to 5.14-ish.
Disclaimer: The characters and the sandbox in which they play does not belong to me. I am simply borrowing for a short time.
Summary: The Horsemen are not just people with fancy rings. They aren’t even demons with fancy rings. They are another species entirely, a force unto themselves, and Lucifer is kidding himself if he thinks that they are at his beck and call. They are separate. They are neutral. Dean Winchester is not built like them.

A/N: Holy shit, it's finally finished. And I am terrified that this last little bit is anticlimactic and weird. I tried? Ack. Thanks to everyone who stuck with it, and I hope this doesn't disappoint.

Prologue | Chapter One | Chapter Two | Chapter Three | Chapter Four | Chapter Five | Chapter Six | Chapter Seven | Chapter Eight | Chapter Nine | Chapter Ten | Chapter Eleven | Chapter Twelve | Chapter Thirteen | Chapter Fourteen | Chapter Fifteen | Chapter Sixteen | Chapter Seventeen | Chapter Eighteen | Chapter Nineteen | Chapter Twenty | Chapter Twenty-One | Chapter Twenty-Two | Chapter Twenty-Three | Chapter Twenty-Four | Chapter Twenty-Five | Chapter Twenty-Six| Chapter Twenty-Seven

Epilogue )
Dammit, why can't I write the things I'm actually supposed to be writing? This might be totally out of character and silly. But my brain wouldn't let me do anything else until I finished it. So there you are. I suppose I did say that I wanted to write something fluffy after the sheer angst of 'Intervention', but still. STOP TAKING OVER MY BRAIN, X-MEN, I NEED TO FINISH MY THESIS CHAPTER.

Title: Duct Tape Makes You Smart
Genre/Pairing: Burn Notice!AU, Charles/Erik, background Alex/Hank
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~4,800
Warnings: Spoiler free! 
Disclaimer: Neither Burn Notice nor X-Men: First Class belong to me, which is a damn shame. I am merely playing in someone else's sandbox.
Summary: For a prompt at [ profile] 1stclass_kink : X-Men via Burn Notice. "My name is Charles Xavier. I used to be a spy..."
Guns make you stupid. Duct tape makes you smart. )

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 [ 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.

Meme time!

Dec. 29th, 2010 06:14 pm
Man, I haven't done a meme since my high school whiny lj of awful that is now thankfully lost to deletion and the sands of time. But hey, it's the end of the first full year I've spent fully ensconced in fandom with a journal fully devoted to it and stuff. So yeah, a meme should be in order! Stolen from [ profile] coldthermistor .

meme meme meme meme meme )

Oh my god, when did it become the end of the year. I can't actually handle this.
My flight across the Atlantic back to merry old England was made bearable by

a) getting a seat at the front of a section so I had leg room, and


And now I have lots more ideas on the characters and stuff for my big bang, so I am most pleased. Oh, and current word count is, like, 17,000 or something. As my long suffering beta, the very wonderful and tolerant [ profile] karakalyn will tell you, my brain exploded on me the other day and now there are many new things going on that I really hope I can beat into coherence. I will make the cool things happen. I'm determined!

Oh man, I'm so jet-lagged right now. I think my eyes are yelling at me. But here's a master list of what came out of my little self-congratulatory prompt party. I think it went pretty well:

A Dies Irae mini-sequel (Supernatural, Dean/Castiel, Sam/Gabriel)

Arthur used to be a sysadmin of justice! (Inception, Arthur/Cobb)

Let Justice Roll Down Like Water (Supernatural, Dean/Castiel)

Yusuf deserves birthday cake! (Inception, gen) EDIT: Now with ridiculous Arthur/Cobb sequel if you scroll down the massive conversation between myself and [ profile] coldthermistor !

Profound bondedness (Supernatural, Dean/Castiel)

A sequel to "Hollowed and Whole" (Supernatural, Dean/Michael)

Okay passing out now bye!

Awarded Merit on my dissertation! I AM THE MASTER OF LITERATURE.

...or, you know, parts of it.

And 'a' master, not 'the' master.


In celebration, I will commit fic for great justice! Prompt me, and I will try and write something. It will be small, and may or may not be coherent, but it will hopefully entertain. (I probably won't be able to sustain this for very long either, but we'll see. It will be an experiment!)

And why yes, I am still avoiding my long fics, why do you ask? They are giving me so much trouble and I'm pretty sure I had an epiphany about my big bang last night but it was wrapped in the middle of a seriously tripped-out nightmare I actually screamed my way out of for the first time in my life and now I can't remember it. WHY SO DIFFICULT, BRAIN???
[ profile] cynicl  has done me a great honor and nominated "Dies Irae" for the rare pair category at [ profile] spn_award. If you agree with her, second the nomination and/or vote! I'm somewhat uncomfortable with self-pimping in this way, but I also like the potential of shiny things on my internet mantle, as unlikely as that may be.

In other news, I am still ludicrously busy in RL, and it is irritating. My giant stack of critical reading is glaring at me accusingly as I write this, because I am officially entering the realm of dangerous procrastination. Alas, literature surveys do not write themselves. Even less so when I have about 48 hours in which to write one in.

And yet,[ profile] inception_kink keeps dangling its prompts tantalizingly at me! I WILL RESIST YOU, INTERNET. JUST WATCH.


Aug. 22nd, 2010 09:49 pm
Ahem. Firstly, hello new friends! I am glad you all love Inception as much as I do!

Secondly...I have had a revelation as how I am going to make my big bang as ridiculous and epic as possible.

Here is what I'm thinking. Danger of maximum ridiculousity. )
Right, it's official: I'm doing [ profile] inception_bang . I'm excited and terrified because I haven't done creative work on a deadline in a long while, but I feel good about this one. And I love Inception fandom like burning.

I should also add at this point that I'm pretty sure that I had a three-level dream the other night. It was incredibly confusing, and I'm pretty sure Cobb was my brother and Natalie Portman was my mom, and we were all ninja assassins. And as awesome as that sounds, at the time it was incredibly disturbing and terrifying because there were some horrifying visuals thrown in for good measure. My brain concerns me sometimes.

In other news, 'On the Wings of War' will be updated...soon. I was gone for the weekend, so I'm behind again. Le sigh. It'll be exciting, though, once it's on the page.

A request

May. 24th, 2010 09:57 pm
Hey lovely f-listers,

Would anyone be willing to do some beta-reading/concrit of the upcoming chapter of 'On the Wings of War'? The plot is giving me major difficulties (as in, good god I know this is going somewhere, now if only I knew WHERE), which may be leading to some unevenness in the tone and pacing, and I'd just really love if someone could give me a new perspective on it. Payment would be in the form of love and/or commentfic.

Thanks in advance!
