What are your favourites? I need to make a list of them for a thing.

Does anyone know, in average word count, what the approximate maximum length of posts on DW is. I know it was ~9-10k on LJ, but it seems to be a bit more than that over here.

2011's pretty much over and done with. I consider it a good year. Made some friends, got back into fandom (even if I did leave it again, but hey), learned some new things.

I also wrote a LOT. How much a lot?

Approximately 142,000 words.

This does not include the counts for both of my in-progress big bang fics, an unpublished Holmes pastiche that's also still in-progress, or numerous other things that haven't seen their way off of kinkmemes yet. I don't even know what that number would be if I included those items. This does include fics that I wrote as [personal profile] jumperfucker and exchange fics that have not yet been revealed.


I don't usually do new year's resolutions. I still don't really count these as such, but I would like to, in the coming year, actually make a bit of money, and not maim myself in any way. I tend to be really bad at both of those things.

Plan

oxfordtweed: Nicholas Angel frowning at the camera (:-\ - Nicholas)

  • Very carefully devour the sandwich waiting for me in the fridge.

  • Finish my Holmestice.



Speaking of which, might anyone be able to do a quick beta for me on that? I put it off, thinking that I could do it after my appointment on Tuesday, but realised the other day that it's due on Wednesday. Which means I've been working on it whilst a bit high on pain killers. That's never good.

I tried asking for a beta on the meme, but got no takers. Sad.

Stuff I'm working on. Mostly crossovers from hell.

Perfectly Safe - Guidefic with a smattering of Doctor Who (this describes all of my Guidefic, though). Usuing the science fiction conventions of time and faster than light travel to poke holes in such science fiction conventions as time and faster than light travel.

Manhattan, etc - Cabin Pressure/Sherlock BBC. MJN take their most eccentric client yet.

Sex is Boring - Sherlock BBC. Sherlock is asexual. John is not. Neither of them know how to properly communicate.

A Study in Time - Sherlock BBC/Doctor Who, with a smattering of the Guide (this describes all of my Whofic, though). Sherlock investigates the Doctor, and then he investigates the Master.

Wimbledon - Cabin Pressure/Fortysomething. Christmas dinner with the Slippery family. Yes, this includes Martin (and his co-workers).

Completely Normal - Sherlock BBC/Guidefic (with the usual smattering of Doctor Who, and hints of Torchwood). Of COURSE Sherlock is from a small planet somewhere in the vicinity of Betelgeuse. And of COURSE he drags John along to go gallavanting across time and space.

My remix is all polished and about two minutes away from being sent in. I'm very happy, as this now leaves me available to focus on my other WIPs for memes and stuff. I think I rather like this whole remix thing, and have signed up to do another one next month (that is, I've already signed up, but it won't actually start until next month; damn the English language is dopey).

I'm now trying to decide between having a nap on the sofa or having a half-nap in the bath. The bath would be warmer, but no actual sleep can happen in there. Hmm.

So...

I've decided, for reasons I'm not terrible clear on, to do another Sherlock/Doctor Who crossover. Based off the video in my previous post.

And I've already gone and worked a quantum physics joke into the outline.



God, I'm such a nerd.

I'm FINALLY nearly done with my [livejournal.com profile] sherlock_remix assignment.

Leave it up to me to do something about ten times longer than the fic I'm meant to be remixing. Uhm. Whoops? lol


Anyway, these things are meant to be beta'ed. I've never had a beta before. Anyone want to beta-read this thing for me? It gets a bit dark at times (of course it does; I wrote it), and is a bit of pre-canon kid-fic with Sherlock and Mycroft being their usual terror selves. I'm not quite done yet, but I should be done witin the next few hours.

I am going to write the hell out of this threesome scene. I hate this scene already, and I haven't even started it.

Goddamnit, John. Why did you suggest this? You're putting a lot of people through a lot of heartache, I hope you know.



Bastard.

I have just discovered that Semagic can retrieve posts I've made to communities. Which means that copying my fic account to DW has just become a billion times easier.
oxfordtweed: (Fuck Rule 34 - Sherlock)
I've had an influx of people watching whose names I recognise from around the Sherlock fandom, so I'll start doing updates for any major fic posts over here. So, on that note...

Part three of Sex is Boring is up.

In Outer Space ( AO3 | LJ )
After ( AO3 | LJ )
What Your Body Wants ( AO3 | LJ )

Been sleeping on the sofa again. Ryan not happy with this arrangement, but it's either that, or me not sleeping at all, which he tends to be even less happy with. I'm having severe hip and knee issues lately, to the point that even the pressure on my knees from having my legs stretched out in front of me hurts.This also makes using a laptop interesting.

I've also written a follow up to In Outer Space, called After. The kinkmeme put the idea into my head, and I'm going to be turning it into a series, appropriately called Sex is Boring. As in this wonderful song (which is also where my tag on this journal comes from):



The series already draws from a lot of personal experience, and is quite uncomfortable to write in a lot of places. It's a pairing that I really don't like, and deals with a very personal issue. But it's also something that I think needs to be written, since the majority of asexuality fics in the Sherlock fandom sort of throw the realism and drama right out the window. These sorts of relationships are all about compromises, and let's face it: Sherlock Holmes is not the sort of man to put other people first.

I've no idea how long this series is going to get, nor do I know how it's eventually going to end. I know that a committed relationship in such a situation is possible. I've been with Ryan for 11 years. But I'm not sure how long I can see Holmes and Watson lasting in this situation. Part of me really wants to break them up. The rest of me isn't sure.


I think I'll just let it play out and see where it goes with you guys.

Right

Debating the intelligence of medicating, and then trying to fill some prompts until I pass out.


In essence, I will be getting high as a kite, and most certainly writing crack. Hmm.

The problem with these fics is one of two: you either can't come up with enough little things to do, or you come up with far too many, and can't figure out which ones to use.

Feh.
