According to this journal, I haven't posted a piece of fic since October 2011. Eep?

Anyway, I'm going to rectify that very soon. This is for two reasons: firstly, I'm hoping to rejuvenate [community profile] 52fandoms (and my own fic-writing) and secondly, I've gotten completely hooked on Warehouse 13, which is totally the little black dress of crossovers.

So this post is just to warn you that fic will be forthcoming. And Warehouse 13 is kind of my new crack.

Day 3: A female character you hated but grew to love

I can't with all honesty say I've never hated a female character - I've hated plenty. Seven of Nine (Voyager), Rebecca Duvall (Smash), Ros Meyers (Spooks) to name a few.

Besides, this is a *a* female character I hated but grew to love, not my favorite first-hated-but-then-loved character. There are two definite characters worth naming here: Amy Gardiner (West Wing) and Fiona Carter (Spooks). As much as I didn't want to repeat fandoms during this meme, I've already mentioned Spooks, and no doubt West Wing will turn up again, after all it's only day 3.

That said, I suspect that I love my personal fanon version of Fiona Carter more than the actual canon version. For starters, my fanon version ditches Adam Carter and runs off with Zoe (in those universes where Zoe isn't with Tessa, anyway) and actually cares about her son's wellbeing.

So I think it's going to be Amy Gardiner. The character whom - she has just reminded me - my GF detests. It's not that I'm not a Josh/Donna shipper. I mostly am. I'm mostly not an Amy/Josh shipper. In fact I'm more of an Amy/Donna shipper, but that's just me. But I love Amy. It took a while, but I love Amy. I even love her cutting the phone line and throwing Josh's cell into the spaghetti sauce {cue yet another disagreement on that topic with aforementioned GF}.

On the one hand how could I ever not love someone with Amy's original job - a lobbyist for pseudo-radical feminist causes? Who launches water balloons out the window at Josh? Who refuses to budge from her position despite all Josh's attempts?

So yeah, I adore Amy. Her push and pull with Donna (hence the shipping); her advice to the First Lady, her nuttiness. And yeah, Mary-Louise Parker is cute. And also hot. ~shrug~ That's a good enough reason, right? :-)

The rest of the meme )

Day 2: Favourite supporting female character

Clearly, not Janeway. She's a lead character if ever there was one.

So: supporting characters that are up for the "best supporting" role: Sarah Jackson, B'Elanna Torres, Willow Rosenberg, Cordelia Chase, Hotlips Houlihan, CJ Cregg, Abigail Bartlet, Donnatella Moss.

But I think it's Ruth Evershed who wins. Ruth was never a lead role, even when she was the lead in individual episodes. But she was the heart of MI-5 for the years she was there. And when she was no longer there, it wasn't the same place at all. I suspect this only makes sense to fans of Spooks, but the importance of Ruth Evershed is... so very central to how I see that team. That group of people. That team.

Ruth is awesome. Ruth is my choice for favourite supporting female character.

The Days of the Meme )
sangerin: Quinn Fabray/Diana Agron from the Glee promotional poster (glee)
So, here is yet another attempt at doing a 30 days meme in the space of 40 days. This is the 30 days of female characters meme, stolen from [personal profile] scrollgirl.

Day 1 - Favourite lead female character - Lynda Day

The fabulous Lynda Day only just beats out Kathryn Janeway for favourite lead female character, but I have loved Lynda for many more years. Lynda Day, editor of the Junior Gazette, the symbol of my high school ambitions, and possibly also an early crush... Lynda, who won't take crap from anyone, and certainly not from any male. Even thought Spike was clearly perfect for her. But her independence was far more important than her happiness in a relationship, and her ambition was her defining characteristic AND THAT WAS OKAY. Never once, watching Press Gang, even while I was cheering for Lynda/Spike, did I get the idea that Lynda was a negative role model. My mother had no problem with me adoring Lynda Day. My English teacher encouraged it.

The thing is, every time anyone says that Moffat can't write women, I boggle, because Moffat wrote Lynda Day. And I've heard Julia Sawalha's commentaries for some of those episodes: all Lynda's intelligence and awesomeness comes from Moffat, not from Sawalha. (It seems to me that Lydia Bennett is the role of Sawalha's that most matches her own personality.)

During our MICF adventures, the GF and I went to FanFiction Comedy, an hour-long laugh-fest during which four young Kiwi comedians and invited guests wrote and read out their fan fiction offerings to a rather fannish audience.

On the night we attended, we had:

An Australian AU of the Babysitters Club, featuring Crystal, Sophie and Stacey, by Kate McLennan

The Famous Five grew up (all the way to the nursing home), by Heidi O'Loughlin

Entourage RPF by a random Kiwi boy (Joseph Moore)

A smidgeon of supposedly "Paranormal Activity" fic by the other random Kiwi boy (Tom Furniss), and

The most entirely awesome fic of the night, the Grand Designs/Bob the Builder (Kevin McCloud/Wendy) crossover, featuring cameo appearances by Postman Pat, Bananas in Pyjamas, Playschool, and the Teletubbies. Rated R. I'm tweeting at Cal Wilson (the author) until she agrees to post it.

IF YOU ARE IN MELBOURNE -- you REALLY ought to go see their show, because it is honestly awesome, even if the incredibly awesome Rose thinks that is "the place to go" for fic. (I was sitting in the front row muttering "pit of voles, pit of voles". The girl next to me (that wasn't my GF, she was on my other side) laughed and nodded.

Dear fellow Aussies...

Is it me, or does Yvonne Atkins look like Pauline Hanson?

And does that not give me an automatic license to abhor....

So, round 2 of [community profile] thelittlebang is underway.

I pulled out of the last round, which means I'd love to try again. It's only 15,000 words.

But I have a LOT of other stuff on my plate, and I'm kind of stressed out by multiple things. Heck, I'm not even certain that I ought to sign up for [community profile] femslash11.

sangerin: (writing)
Random realisation : I keep forgetting to tag my fics on AO3 as femslash (in "additional tags") because almost everything I write IS femslash. And yet, I will search the archive using that tag when I want to *find* the f/f.

So, there's that AO3 meme.

1. And Your People Shall Be My People, Fried Green Tomatoes, Ruth/Idgie, Yuletide 2009 - 1073 hits

2. Going the Distance, St Trinians 2008, Kelly/Annabelle, - 460 hits

3. The Chalet School and Fazia, Chalet School/Sadlers Wells, Gen - 397 hits

4. Bibliophilia (And other words Brittany doesn't know), Glee, Brittany/Santana, Femslash 10 - 336 hits

5. You can't take the sky from me, Firefly, Zoe/Wash, Malcolm/River Remix 2010 - 247 hits

By which it may be shown... that in terms of reader numbers, I totally benefit from ficathons. Also, FGT is popular. (No. 6 is also Ruth/Idgie).

I've been back-uploading Spooksfic to AO3 today: apologies to those who have subscribed to me.

Remix assignments are out! And I got an assignment that is so awesome that I've already chosen my story and could possibly sit down this evening and get at least 1000 words on it. Yay for inspiration!

Meanwhile, for my Remixer:

The URL you've got is to my main index here on DW. This is essentially up to date in terms of qualifying fandoms. A lot of my newer fics, particularly in randomer fandoms, aren't on that index, but on the AO3: my AO3 profile is here. Between those two links you should have everything.

Have fun!

I held back on posting this because I'd hoped to write more for PBXI, but that doesn't look like it's going to happen, so here's my one and only offering. (I am saving up a few prompts, though...)

Stripped Back Vulnerable (739 words) by faviconSangerin
Fandom: Burlesque (2010)
Rating: Explicit/NC17
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Ali/Nikki
Characters: Ali (Burlesque), Nikki (Burlesque)

Nikki is wearing fishnets, and Ali wants her so badly she's willing to bend - but only so far.

Fic has been committed!

Learning to Love Others (334 words) by faviconSangerin
Fandom: Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975), Picnic at Hanging Rock - Joan Lindsay
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Miranda (Picnic at Hanging Rock)/Irma Leopold, Miranda (Picnic at Hanging Rock)/Sara Waybourne
Characters: Miranda (Picnic at Hanging Rock), Irma Leopold, Sara Waybourne, Dianne de Poitiers

Irma is all alone with her memories.

This is a leftover 40 fandoms/52 fandoms idea that has finally been written. And so it turns out that my first fic for the year was in none of the fandoms I thought it would be (Downton Abbey, Tangled, Upstairs Downstairs...)
sangerin: (writing)
This meme interests me:

Pick a character I write, and I will give you the top five ideas/concepts/other I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to depicting them accurately. This includes both original characters and characters about whom I write fanfic.

After all, I need some method of assignment procrastination...
