Heeeey, Martian fans! Guess who finally posted a new fic? Don't read it, though, because it's tragic.

"Requiem" - Beck/Watney

And guess who posted a fic that's been sitting in her drafts for over a year now?

"Prodigal Son" - Star Trek: Voyager, Chakotay/Paris

Nothing much new to report on the writing side of things. I have an agent who expressed interest in my manuscript last month, so I sent them some pages they requested and am waiting to hear back about that. 

I've been sucked into some new fandoms in the meantime that I want to write ALL THE THINGS for but have none of the headspace yet to do it. I hope to get there someday. Wanna listen to a podcast about a bisexual non-binary private investigator on Mars? Please check out The Penumbra and then come talk to me about it because I neeeeeeed to flail with people. Wanna read about a gay gangster in 1960s London and be bowled over by angst? Please read The Long Firm, go watch the TV show, and then come find me so I can scream into the void with you.

 Guess who write a Star Trek fic two years ago and then totally forgot about it in her drafts folder?


"The Night Absolves" - Jim/Bones, Star Trek: AOS

Jim struggles with his resurrection, and with Leonard's role in it.

 Well, this study doesn't bode well for my story. Harrumph. Guess I'll be hand-waving another bit of science away, along with the possibility of faster-than-light travel and, you know, androids actually existing. Sigh.

2 query letters submitted this week. Another one will go out tonight (as long as I stay focused). Fingers crossed.

In the world of fic, I want to write all the things for all the fandoms but I have none of the headspace and none of the time. Sigh again.

(LJ readers, this has been crossposted from Dreamwidth. Find me there!) :-) 

So the optimist in me was like, "Sure, I can post a couple of times a week! No problem!"

Now the realist in me is like, "Wtf, it's been almost 20 days and I have to make ANOTHER post? Jesus."

I really have nothing to report from a writing standpoint.  

Editing. Editing is happening. Sort of. I'm focusing on little, tiny things now, and less on the plot itself. There was a great post I saw on Tumblr a while back (wish I'd bookmarked it) that challenged you to go through your story and remove as many instances of  "said Character A" as you could. Not in the sense that you would replace "said" with a more interesting synonym (that is bad advice, don't do that, it gets distracting after a while), but either eliminate "said Character A" altogether or make the character do something or show their emotion instead. So like:

"I have to go," Bill said.


"I have to go." Bill took off his glasses and rubbed the bridge of his nose wearily.

Kinda like that. I'm paraphrasing from the actual post, but hopefully you get the idea. It seemed like good advice and now that I'm implementing it in my story, it's really pulling scenes together. So that's cool. I like how I'm always learning things about writing that I didn't know I knew. You don't always think about these things when you're just reading a book for fun.

I did have someone on Tumblr a couple of weeks ago tell me that I shouldn't bother trying to publish my own original work, which was the kick in the pants I needed to finally start really digging into Manuscript Wish List, looking for agents who match what I've written. I've also been polishing and customizing my query letter to fit each agent. I need to start submitting things, which I'll probably do sooner rather than later now. Thanks, anonymous person, since I know you're reading this as well! *waves*

Anyway, on to more serious stuff.

More of a test post than anything else... *taps screen*

Taking the shiny new blog out for a spin! Hopefully this crossposting thing works and this appears on LJ, too. 

Anyway, hello. Been a while. I had this great long life update post planned out in my head, but now I'm home from work and tired/lazy. I also started this post five days ago, so you can see how well that's gone.

More life stuff behind the cut:

New Fics

Okay, I keep forgetting to crosspost here, so these really aren't new, but...

-Find some Sam/Bucky (Avengers) fic here and here.

-Here's some Data/Geordi kidfic.

-Here's a random Jim/Bones fic for no reason.
impishtubist: (Default)
Title: "Price of Memory"
Fandom: Star Trek: Voyager
Pairing: Chakotay/Harry Kim

Like so many of my stories, this was a random idea that quickly got out of control and ballooned to over 50K. Took me five weeks to write and five months to post, because time management is a skill I've yet to master. As ever, this is for the lovely [ profile] kim_j_8472.

And with this, I have no more fics waiting in the wings, no WiPs that I'm working on writing, editing, or posting. I have no fandom that's really calling to me, and nothing (fanfic-wise) that's inspiring me to write. It's an odd feeling. 
impishtubist: (Default)
I am perpetually behind on all of the things, and I've neglected this one for too long. [ profile] kim_j_8472 made me a lovely couple of book covers for two Martian fics I wrote, and she gave them to me for my birthday last week. Thank you so much for this awesome gift, my friend.

The posts can be found here and here, and the covers have been added to the fics here and here

Usually it takes me years to get to the point where I'm shipping Character X/OMC in a given fandom.

For The Martian, it only took me three Beck/Watney fics and now I'm on to Watney/OMC. And it's all [ profile] canonisrelative's fault. So I wrote an xmas gift for her:

"Peace in the Storm"

Summary: As the Hermes heads for Earth, Mark slowly falls apart while Beck tries to hold him together.

impishtubist: (Default)

I ended up the month with a little over 52K, which is about my average with NaNo. I took every damn one of those 30 days to do it, though, which is weird for me. Usually I either finish by the second or third week, or I flame out in the first. It really was like pulling teeth to make my word count every day, and a lot of times I didn't, so I had to make up for it later on down the road.

I've fallen deep, deep down the rabbit hole and there's no saving me.

Title: Contact
Fandom: The Martian
Pairing: Beck/Watney

I have a problem and it's called The Martian.

"Moonrise" - Beck/Watney

 Chris vowed once that he’d never leave Mark behind again. Unfortunately, this time, he doesn’t have a choice.

"Plummet" - The Martian, Chris Beck/Mark Watney

  I've fallen headfirst into The Martian (well, okay, I did a while ago, but I didn't work up the nerve to write anything for this pairing until now. Thanks, [ profile] oakstone730!). Here's my first crack at writing for the fandom. Hopefully my next attempt will be way more angsty.

"Visiting Hours" - Sherlock, Lestrade/Sherlock

"Field Medicine" - Star Trek: AOS, Jim/Bones
impishtubist: (Default)
Because I really am still alive out there, despite how quiet this journal has been.

So this is a birthday fic for the wonderful [ profile] canonisrelative, my partner-in-crime and all-around lovely person. (I tried writing you fluffy Jim/Bones fic, and somehow ended up with angsty Joanna-centric fic instead, oops). Nonetheless, I hope you have a fantastic birthday. I’m so very glad that fandom and writing brought us together, and your friendship means the world to me. :-) Have a great day, dear!

Title: "Written in the Blood"
Fandom: Star Trek: Voyager; Star Trek: TNG
Pairings: Chakotay/Tom Paris; Chakotay/Lore (TNG)
Characters: Chakotay, Lore, B'Elanna Torres, Tom Paris, Ensemble
Rating: R
Warnings: Angst, violence, sexual content, language

Summary: “I spent the first forty years of my life running in the opposite direction. I ran from my planet, from my people… from my father. It had to stop somewhere.”

Notes: A pre-VOY look at the three years Chakotay spent with the Maquis. All blame must be directed at [ profile] kim_j_8472 for this fic actually making it onto paper, because one day I made the mistake of mentioning to her that I had this really strange crack!ship as an OTP and she was like WRITE ALL THE THINGS.

Kidding aside, I'm very thankful to Kim for cheering me on and beta'ing every version of this story I threw at her over the past three years. I'm pleased to now be releasing it into the wild. :-)
