I know I'm not the only person who came out of this movie with a lot of feelings about Steves. And, you know, Diana and Peggy. But here's a bunch of words about my feelings.

Hello, friends. Would you like to read a Blade Runner AU about grizzled, world-weary Mike and Jeff making their way through a gritty, noir, cyberpunk version of LA? I hope you do, because I wrote it.

Chugging along with this one fic that I thought might just be emotional arcs, and it turns out that it's also like, growing a plot as well. It's the worst! Why, writing, whyyyyyy.

I finished reading the psychic wolves books. I'm not sure if I would recommend them to others, necessarily. But they were generally entertaining and had fun worldbuilding with their fake Vikings who bang each other.

Oh, and I wrote some psychic wolf fic (for Lupercalia) myself:

Characters: Mike Richards, Jeff Carter

Summary:


On the ice, he careens into opposing players, he fires off slapshots, he wins faceoffs, and he gets into fights. He does it all with the taste of the lake's water on his tongue, the feel of its winter ice underneath his skates. Some of the other witches chirp him for cheating, for using his magic where it's not allowed. But they don't get it. Mike's magic has never been something he does. It's always been something he is.



In case you really wanted to read about deer butchering today or something.

Title: The Galaxy Is Not a Cold Dead Place
Fandom: Star Wars
Pairing: Finn/Rey/Poe
Word Count: ~21,000
Content Notes: Contains some descriptions of violence.
Summary: Canon Divergent AU: Finn and Poe go with Rey to find Luke Skywalker, and the mission doesn't go as smoothly as they all hoped it would.
Notes: Splits off from the end of The Force Awakens. I have spent a bunch of time on Wookieepedia researching it, but I do fudge some of their backstories here because I still haven't read Before the Awakening. Sorry if I contradict anything that's canon. It really does take a village to write one of these things. Thanks go out to Roga and M for brainstorming plot points with me, azephirin for cheering me on, and especially to Zulu for beta-reading and telling me to fix the beginning of this.

Wooo, another fic, because apparently everything decided to land this weekend.

Title: Stacking the Dice
Fandom: How to Get Away with Murder
Pairing: Connor/Oliver
Word count: ~22,000
Summary: High School AU. Connor makes a bet with Michaela. Oliver gets caught in the crossfire.
Notes: I was going to say that this was kind of my version of a Cruel Intentions AU, but I hadn't actually seen Cruel Intentions at the time (or even read Dangerous Liaisons). Now that I've seen the movie, I can say that this is probably more like an off-brand copy of a Cruel Intentions AU.

I wrote a thing for Remix Madness last week! Author reveals are now up, so I can finally link it here:

Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Elementary (TV)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Sherlock Holmes/Joan Watson
Additional Tags: Slice of Life
Summary: The things that they notice and the things they don't say.


It's been a while since I've written Elementary fic, but I've really enjoyed the show, and it was nice to have the opportunity to revisit them now that they've had time to really shift and change. This was a fun experiment in no-dialogue-allowed remixing.


Two people also wrote remixes of my fic:

I know I just posted fic in this fandom, but shoot, the finale gave me a lot of complicated feelings. I might write things up from a more analytical place later on, but for now, this is all I've got.

Title: Just Mangled Guts Pretending

Pairing: Connor/Oliver
Word count: ~1300
Summary: Oliver wakes up, and everything is different, and nothing is different at all.
Notes: Major spoilers for the season finale. There are many post-ep reactions, but this one is mine. Title stolen from this quote.

Hurrah! I managed to finish this before the season finale of HTGAWM. I am also unclear as to whether or not people have figured out that this is a sort of kind of Casablanca AU thing. Kind of.

Title: Play It Again
Fandom: How to Get Away with Murder
Pairing: Connor/Oliver
Word count: ~17,900
Warnings: references to (but not any detailed descriptions of) rape
Summary: Future fic. Five years ago, Oliver left Philadelphia and Connor behind with the intention of never seeing either of them ever again. But then Connor shows up in Seattle asking for Oliver's help with a case, and Oliver is forced to re-evaluate his priorities.
Notes: So many thanks to merisunshine36 for the audiencing and some early beta notes. The accuracy of the law and the hacking/computer stuff is about in line with that of the show, that is to say, mostly made up. This splits off from canon after 1x10.

I usually don't do WiPs, but eh, fuck it. I have a first draft sketched out, but not fully edited. I need to go through and put in all the feelings. Also, I don't want the show to fully joss me before I start posting, as opposed to just mostly jossing me.

It's probably still a disjointed mess, but I need to get rid of it so I can go back to focusing on my Yuletide fic.

Title: Breakpoint
Fandom: How to Get Away with Murder
Pairing: Connor Walsh/Oliver Hampton
Rating: NC-17
Word count: ~6,300
Summary: Sex Criminals AU. Connor's penis is literally magic.
Notes: Un-betaed. Follows canon up until 1x08. If you haven't read Sex Criminals yet, you should totally do so. After doing that, you should write me all the Sex Criminals AUs. Also, I take no credit for the glowing penises. You can blame Matt Fraction or Chip Zdarsky for that one.
