jedibuttercup: A freshly prepared margarita (margarita)
... as a distraction while I fight my way through finishing my [community profile] fandom5k story. Borrowed from [personal profile] calliopes_pen, the TROPE MEME:

Comment with a fanfic trope and, if you'd like, a character/pairing, and I will tell you:
♦ how likely I am to write it
♦ maybe a few lines of theoretical fic
jedibuttercup: (shen me?)
It's been more than 100 works ago since I last did this meme, too. Maybe it'll get some conversation going? :)

I currently have 803 works archived at AO3. Pick a number from 1 (the most recent) to 803 (the first thing I posted there), and I'll tell you three things I currently like about it.

Since those posts range from 100 word fics to 100,000 word fics, I can't promise how voluble or interesting those answers will be, but it should be fun regardless. :)
jedibuttercup: (coffee plz)
Because I'm bored with research for my current active projects ([community profile] backagainharry and [community profile] fandom5k), a recurrent meme:

First Lines, previously meme'd in 2008; 2012; April 2014; Sept 2014; & 2016.

Post the first line from your 25 most recent fanfic posts... )

Anything else you find interesting, or want to ask about...?

Taken from [personal profile] calliopes_pen, because I've been stressed and fretful and having a hard time writing lately, here’s a fanfic focused meme to get my creative juices stirred up again.

Choose a fic and 1 (or more) question(s) from the list below:

1: What inspired you to write the fic this way?
2: What scene did you first put down?
3: What’s your favorite line of narration?
4: What’s your favorite line of dialogue?
5: What part was hardest to write?
6: What makes this fic special or different from all your other fics?
7: Where did the title come from?
8: Did any real people or events inspire any part of it?
9: Were there any alternate versions of this fic?
10: Why did you choose this pairing for this particular story?
11: What do you like best about this fic?
12: What do you like least about this fic?
13: What music did you listen to, if any, to get in the mood for writing this story? Or if you didn’t listen to anything, what do you think readers should listen to to accompany us while reading?
14: Is there anything you wanted readers to learn from reading this fic?
15: What did you learn from writing this fic?

My fanfic can be found either through my DW indexes (Main Index; and B:tVS-Focused) or at the AO3.
jedibuttercup: (geek inside)
Big disappointment this year: I ended the year with only half a chapter of BAH written. Obviously, I failed in my promise to update that particular WIP; I just couldn't get it off the ground. That'll have to carry over to 2017. (Current progress: two-thirds of Chapter 19 written!)

However... I did complete a novel-length fic! And two other big bangs! And one of my Yuletide 2015 fics was 10,000 words long! Between those and finishing Lesser Men in 2015, I feel like I stretched my writing muscles a lot, so I'm not entirely displeased with myself. *grin*

So, TL;DR fic meme, here we go!

jedibuttercup: (yuletide)
In recognition of my eleventh year of participating in [ profile] yuletide, and the unusually swift assignment matching this year, have a meme! Herein find all 85,800 words I've written for 38 stories for the challenge since I first took up keyboard for it in 2006.

Yuletide 2006-2015: A Decade of Yuletide Gifts )

I should probably do one of these for gifts I've received, too; watch this space for that soon!

In honor of currently having 777 stories posted to AO3, and having passed two million posted words of fanfic, some memeage! :)

jedibuttercup: (who you are)
2015 went a lot like 2014 for me ... with the exception of that big burst of Falling Skies fic in July last year; I didn't have an equivalent this year. I did, however, finish several WIPs, including The Big One, which: finally! *throws confetti* So, more progress.

Moving onward! TL;DR fic meme, here we go!

The Questions: )
jedibuttercup: (lake house)
As my last meme has run out, and I'm trying to keep the journaling habit going this year, I've snagged another one that's been going 'round. (Though I've struck out one question; I'm leaving it in for posterity's sake, but I very seldom actually use a beta.)

Drop the title of one of my fics and a number (see questions below) in my comment box, and I will tell you:

1. What was my inspiration for this fic? How did it come to me?
2. What’s my favorite part of the fic?
3. What’s the part of the fic I’m most proud of?
4. What part of the fic was the hardest for me to write?
5. What part of the fic am I still dissatisfied with?
6. Who’s my favorite character in the fic?
7. Were there any major decisions I made about the fic that could have made it go a whole different direction?
8. Was there anything I only learned about the fic after I had finished it? (themes, motifs, symbolism, etc)
9. Did anyone in the fic surprise me by doing anything? If so, what?
10. If I had to sum up this fic in a sentence, what would it be?
11. If I were to rewrite this fic, what would I change?
12. Did any thing about this fic’s reception surprise me?
13. What were my beta’s major comments about the first draft of this fic?
14. If I were to write a sequel to this fic, what would it be about?
15. Any other question about the fic!
jedibuttercup: (yuletide)
Finally defeated the bears at 5:00am this morning (five hours before deadline) and posted my Yuletide story! Not sure if I'll get any treats out this year, but I'll do a skim of the requests list to see if anything leaps out. If not, I'll stick my nose back to the Wishlist grindstone. RL's just been... more of a stumbling block than usual this year.

Also going to see The Hobbit: BOTFA tonight. I'd say "no spoilers please", but ha ha, the book is how old? Pretty sure I know how it's going to end, though it'll be interesting to see if there's any clueless folks in the theater. *rubbing hands together* For all its flaws, PJ's Middle Earth has been amazingly and heart-grabbingly immersive for me. It's a shame it's at an end.

Still fifteen days open on my January talk meme, if there's anything about me or my writing that you want to know!
jedibuttercup: (horizon)
I noticed that December talk meme going around; but this is not a good month for me, given all the other givens. But I've also seen that others are cleverly rebranding it as the January meme! That, I think I can handle.

So! Pick a date in January. Pick a topic. On the date you choose I will post something about that topic. It can be writing-related (headcanon, faves, frustrations, etc.) or it can branch into other fandom questions, books I read, things I watch, places I've been, cats, photos, other hobbies, opinions; whatever you want. If a topic is uncomfortable for me or I just don't have anything to say for whatever reason, I may ask you to make a second choice. If you want to request more than one topic, pick a different day for each.

The List )

All questions are now filled, and available under friendslock on the .meme tag.
jedibuttercup: (magic)
It's been a long time since I did this meme! But I've seen a variant going around again lately, so:

Give me a link to one of my fics or WIPs, and I'll give you details that didn't make it into the fic. Background canon, deleted scenes, or a look into the future. My choice, but if you have a specific question you can ask it in your request.

No promises I'll answer specific questions if you pick a WIP, but: Fic Indexed by Fandom (DW) or User Profile (AO3).

If you're curious, here's a link to the answers I gave in 2011.
jedibuttercup: (gandalf reads)
*cracking knuckles* Ten left from last year's Wishlist. I had a rough start to the year, but I think I'm mostly back on my stride now. Time to get 'er done. But while more plotlines percolate ...

First Lines! Previously meme'd in 2008, 2012, and back in April:

jedibuttercup: (the rock)
And here we are: the very last day of the meme. I hope you've enjoyed the pictures - thank you to those of you who've commented over the last thirty days! I've had fun sharing them with you.

Went literal with two of these, and metaphorical on the last. :)

Day 30 - a photo of something big )
jedibuttercup: (snow white)
Had some fun with this one. No humans or family pets involved, though oddly enough two of the pictures are in fact of living creatures. :)

Day 29 - a photo of something small )
jedibuttercup: (geek inside)
I've already done plenty of "someone" photos; and I don't want to choke up thumbing through them again today. So I'm going to go with a few "some things" that I haven't yet illustrated in this meme. :)

Day 28 - a photo of something/one special to you )
jedibuttercup: (narnia)
Tells a story, or illustrates a story? I went with both interpretations here: the first two come with stories from my own life, and the third powerfully invokes a particular piece of literature to me.

Day 27 - a photo (or photos) that tells a story )
