Watchmen | you are life

They say you can't go home again...

So! As I'm sure anyone followinsg this journal may have noticed, I've kind of been neglecting things around here since last fall. The fault of this, yes, was Tumblr. I do like Tumblr - I like the concept for a blogging site, I like the people on it, I love the friends I've made. However, the people who run the site? Have their head so far up their ass that they're staring out of their own nostrils, pardon the crudeness. Also, noooot designed for text formatting. So I've decided to try using LJ, or rather crossposting from my nice DreamWidth, so hopefully I'll have at least one account at a site that isn't terrible.

In the interim, I have...
  • written rather a lot of fanfic
  • started swearing a lot more
  • gone on antidepressants, thank Christ
  • decided where I'm going to college this fall (Oberlin; I leave a week from Monday)
  • stopped pretending to the Internet that I'm already through college
  • watched (most of) Teen Wolf (yes, I know)
  • watched (most of) Motorcity (oh please, just shush)
  • gotten frighteningly into Supernatural (believe me, I know)
  • as of just last night, watched the first season of Slings & Arrows and been struck entirely speechless
  • started making graphics
  • acquired some rather excellent shoes
  • changed my entire relationship with tags several times, which fact will require some thinking over here.

HS | laughs like steel unsheathing

(no subject)

Title: And Quite a Story to Tell
Fandom: Homestuck
Characters/Pairings: Dave/Jade, Rose, Kanaya, Karkat, Equius, Eridan [background Rose/Kanaya, Aradia/Equius]
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, discussions of sex, pesterlog-fic
Written for: digi_dragon's request, for a really ill-advised meme I did on Tumblr
Wordcount: 3,000
A/N: For the record, this takes place several years after the events of canon. Also, given how frankly torturous LJ was the last time I tried to post anything, screw it, I'm not coloring the text. Unapologetic fluff, as a break from a number of depressing WIPs that I swear will see the light of day at some point.

Watchmen | you are life

every time you close your eyes (scare your son scare your daughter)

Go to AO3 and list your top ten fics in terms of hit count (via apiphile)

  1. ancient lying underneath [the weak as iron remix] - BBC's Sherlock. It's not tagged with any major pairings, but it's about the fan favorites, for a pretty popular fandom, and it's a fest fic that got recced around a bit, so I guess that explains it. (I'm also kind of proud of it, though I'm not sure it's justified.)
  2. The View from Up Here - X-Men: First Class. Tagged with the fandom's favorite pairing, written and posted early in the fic explosion, and got recced on Tumblr by gyzym because it arose out of a conversation with her; she is the BNF in this fandom as far as I can tell. So that explains it. It's also ridiculous self-indulgent id-fic written on an evening when I was slightly loopy, and doesn't really deserve the attention.
  3. Five Sharp Points [The Healing Remix] - Firefly. Another fest fic, for the same fest, and I think it might have gotten recced once too? Interestingly, this has less than half the hits of the first two; I'm not sure what's up with that. It's decent in my opinion, but not super.
  4. Never Make Me Wonder - Homestuck. I am really, really surprised to see this on the list, to be honest; no fests, no BNFs, and it's one of my most recent fics, so it's had less time to attract hits. Evidently it's pretty good? It's centered on a fairly divisive character, but I think she has a lot of stans as well as the opposite.
  5. You've Seen How I Live - Inception. Ahh, both a fest fic (for an LJ-based fest, however, unlike Remix_Redux) and the fandom's darlings, but it's genderswap, and I guess there's less of an audience for femmeslash epics. Still, it's pretty darn high on the list. This fic could probably be a lot better, but I am still quite happy with it overall, not least because it was sort of a milestone for me.
  6. What Might Be Left to Say In Time Come After Death - Homestuck. I guess this fandom really does live on the AO3 to an extent. To be honest, I really like this one; it's definitely gratifying that it's gotten some attention. Interestingly, I think it's got a higher kudos count than anything but Never Make Me Wonder; evidently I write better Homestuck fic than anything else. (How much that's saying is up to the reader.)
  7. War Without End - X-Men: First Class. Also posted during the fandom's height (which may still be going on? I don't know, I found I didn't have enough enthusiasm for the source to grapple with its issues, and then got drawn into Homestuck). It's lady-centric and short; also, not my best.
  8. With Thanks to Apollo - Inception. This one is ALL LADIES, and has also been remixed twice, which probably got it quite a bit of attention. It's not a masterpiece, but I think I pretty much achieved what I was trying to achieve, and it was an interesting experiment in an outsider POV.
  9. Neurons of Murderous Dancers - Inception & Black Swan. I am really, really pretty damn proud of this fic, and Black Swan is a pretty small fandom, which drew it some positive atteention, I think, and I guess the premise interests people? It was originally posted over here, and the amount of attention on this end redefines 'flattering.'
  10. Drift - Narnia (bookverse). I... have no idea what this one is doing on the list. I thought it wasn't a very big fandom, and it's a really short fic. I guess the Susan Problem is a popular subject?
