KSBB 2013: Sea Change

Title: Sea Change
Artist(s): [personal profile] aku_rin, [personal profile] cannedebonbon
Universe: AOS
Pairing(s): Kirk/Spock, Spock/OMC, Kirk/Helen Noel
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: none
Summary: As the five-year mission gets underway, Kirk and Spock are on course to develop a friendship--or something--that will define them both. Then, a poorly-timed away mission changes everything. Before they can begin to deal with the fallout, Jim disappears. With his captain presumed dead, Spock has no choice but to accept a promotion and try to move on. But when he starts experiencing disturbing visions, he gradually begins to suspect that Jim may be alive after all. (A canon-divergent AU assuming they began the 5-year mission following STXI.)

FIC: Post Tenebras Lux, Kirk/Spock, explicit, STID spoilers

Title: post tenebras lux
Author: [personal profile] jouissant
Fandom: Star Trek AOS (Star Trek into Darkness)
Rating: NC-17
Length: ~2,600 words
Summary: It’s as if McCoy’s departure has sucked the oxygen from the room. Spock suddenly finds himself at a loss, as if the sheer magnitude of all he wants to say and do, the measure of it, is too much to put into words.

Notes/Warnings: I took some liberties re: the state of Jim's body post-superblood. Also, this work contains unprotected sex- everyone's up on their hypos, okay? Okay. Enjoy!

I sparkly heart you, Trek fandom! It's good to be back, huh?

FIC: Under the Milky Way, Tonight, NC-17

Title: Under the Milky Way, Tonight
Author: jouissant
Fandom: ST:XI
Character/Pairing(s): Kirk/Spock/Uhura
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~4,000
Warnings: None
Notes: Written for Porn Battle XIV, for the prompts "convince" and "once"

Summary: She's not sure when this became a thing, them drinking and him propositioning her and Spock. She can't remember when it started, and it must have been gradual because Nyota knows once upon a time she would have shut that shit down post fucking haste, and he'd never have said another word. But Kirk is sneaky, and he snuck up on her, and now he's here, sitting next to her on the banquette with the smiling eyes and the booming laughter and the hand on Spock's shoulder and it's like…why didn't she think of this herself?

I don't even know

Somehow I have been eaten by a slight comics obsession. I blame this on Stupid Tumblr- first I rewatched Thor, Captain America, and Avengers, and then I started following a Marvel blog and was seduced by some scans of Runaways. So I am now in possession of the entire run and am working my way through. I'm only on #4 but am enjoying so far- I just realized how much I love the "runaways make it on their own/ find chosen family" trope. Especially if said runaways have an awesome hideout.

I also saw some scans of Hawkeye, and OMG YES. The art is awesome; it reminds me a little bit of Dan Clowes and the whole book is pretty spare and a little noirish. I may actually venture to a real live comic book store to track down some more issues, but I preordered Vol. 1 which comes out in March because having to deal with/store actual individual issues of comic books stresses me out and we have way too much crap in our house already. I am really excited about Kate Bishop showing up; I saw some scans from later in the series and I'm looking forward to Hawkeye & Hawkeye banter.

Last but definitely not least in my comics binge is Saga--it's about a couple on opposing sides of an interplanetary war who, against all odds, get together and have a baby. They're now on the run from both sides of the conflict and a freelance bounty hunter. I'm kind of in love with the whole world of this comic and the characters. I signed up for Rarewomen and really, really hope I get to write about someone from Saga.

I am pretty monofannish for the most part so it's exciting to feel that way about something besides Trek for a change. And daunting, because (at least with Marvel) there is SO MUCH out there.

In other writing news, I am almost 10k into a Trek AU that is, kill me now, a Dragonriders of Pern fusion. I don't even know. I went to ye olde kink meme looking for ideas and someone prompted this and talked about Bones as a crotchety weyr healer who seriously side-eyes the whole dragonriding thing and I don't know, I just really wanted to write it. And instead of being crack, it is painfully earnest, because I'm broken and can't write crack. I refused to give them all the dragonrider honorifics, though, because no. Anyway, I now have semi-elaborate headcanon for what would happen if Vulcans colonized Pern along with humans and why they might not be so hot on the whole Impression thing (Spock is cast as a reluctant bluerider who impresses by accident, a la Jaxom and Mirrim, if you're familiar with Pern at all). Who knows if this will ever see the light of day, but it's immensely pleasing to my 9-year-old self to be writing it.

I'm also thinking about plotting out a sequel to my STBB from 2010 (Something Rich and Strange, aka most pretentiously titled story ever, aka the only long fic I've ever written.) I have no idea where to go with it, or how far to take it. I reread SRaS and, after 2+ years I actually feel like it's pretty good and might be worth expanding on. I think Into Darkness might give me some more juice for that kind of wordbuilding.

AND, I started watching TOS with the mini and he can now successfully identify both Kirk ("Coke") and Spock ("Pock") without prompting. My work here is done.

Well, crap...

...I knew signing up for that damn bingo card was a bad idea because now I have ideas for, like, 90% of the card. I like that this challenge encourages me to shamelessly give in to all the cheesy desires of my little heart. I mean, au: daemons. Spock is obviously Kirk's daemon in this scenario. And (going by His Dark Materials-style daemons) Kirk is obviously a kid so that Spock can change forms. Oh god, or maybe Bones makes a better daemon? Aaaand now I want to write a whole HDM AU, which would probably require rereading the books. But I actually *wrote a couple sentences of fic* the other day, which I haven't done since my ability to write creatively up and left me in, oh, fall of 2010.

In other news, I picked up The Bone Key and have been working my way through it after everyone goes to sleep (I have finally, finally succumbed to e-books, after much resistance. I blame the iPad Mini and its perfect, perfect size). It's awesome; it's a collection of short stories focused on one Kyle Murchison Booth, socially awkward archivist extraordinaire. Very Lovecraftian, only with more incubi. I finished it last night and promptly started (again finally) Game of Thrones. I'm only a couple chapters in but enjoying it so far.

And now I'm going to go write more daemon before someone wakes up from his nap.

Ever-growing List of Recs: A work in progress

I can't express enough love for rec lists. I bow down in supplication to compilers of massive rec lists- they're the absolute best, especially when you're new to a fandom or periodically duck in and out like I've been known to. Nothing is better than having an insatiable craving for fic and then, lo, finding a massive list of recs to cherry-pick from. It's like opening a brand new box of Godiva or something. Nom.

ANYWAY, this will probably be mostly for my own reference, but hopefully I can give back a little and help point some wayfaring stranger towards something really great.

Writing and remix roundup

Sorry for the radio silence in these parts! Fic has eaten my life a little bit, and I've just been writing writing writing, which has been really amazing. Unfortunately, it's all stuff that can't be posted for months and months, so I'm trying to stave off my need for instant gratification by reading and commenting on lots of other fic in an effort to live vicariously through people.

The Remix 2010 Archive went live this past Sunday, and there is some really great stuff up. I've only read in Star Trek so far, but wow. The remix of my story Downtime is here and it is so much fun- the original story is a little gen ficlet about an impromptu ping-pong tournament on the Enterprise, and my remixer expanded the fic and set it in the mirrorverse. Go check it out!

Other fics I love from Remix are The Loudest Noise (affannato, affetuoso, agitato) (phenomenally good Gaila and Uhura-centric Academy-era story with such creative worldbuilding; I'm seriously insanely jealous of Anon's brain and want to go to there immediately) and Pipe Dreams (the Marzipan in Your Pieplate Megamix) (go check out the original ficlet (Pipe Dreams) by Iambic first, then read the expansive remix. I can't say a whole lot without spoiling but it is just so good!)

Reveals are this Sunday, and I am so excited to see who wrote for me and squee at them, and then go squee at my remixee, because she really liked my story and I have so much I want to say to her about it, but I can't yet. I'm scared that if I comment anon I'll be found out somehow, so I just have to wait 'til Sunday. I was really worried about the story, but I'm now really happy with how it turned out barring a few small tweaks that I will make after the reveals happen.

I'm also writing a [livejournal.com profile] trekreversebang pinch hit that is so not what I usually write but is turning out to be a lot of fun. That goes up June 16th, so not too much longer until that heady "I just posted a story" feeling. What can I say, I'm becoming addicted to feedback. Not-so-secret shame!
