thewrongkindofpc: Kate Bishop in a purple pea coat and holding a bow, sunglasses on like a badass (kate bishop)
I've been meaning to link all of the things I've been posting to Ao3 here--I've been saying I'm going to do it since, um, jeez, since August, and now that I finally have a day off I'm managing to actually knock some things off of my to-do list during, I thought I'd give it a shot, so here goes, most recent to least:

eyes replaced by pearls
fandom: In The Flesh
pairing: Simon/Kieren, Kieren & Jem
length: 16,081
summary: Jem is determined not to take any more shit, Kieren refuses to believe that anything is an inappropriate subject for humor, and Simon is trying to switch genres. It’s a good thing they’re all so good with effective communication, or this could get messy—oh, wait.

The Beginning of the World Often Comes
fandom: John Dies at the End
pairing: gen, canon pairings
length: 2,762
summary: Dave’s mission, should he choose to accept it, is to convince John’s teenage self to befriend his own teenage self in the past, because if they’re never friends, they’ll never save the world together, and so they’ll all cease to exist. Problem is, Dave can’t think of any compelling reasons why teenage John should want to befriend him. Written for Yuletide!

You Makes Me Feel (So)
fandom: Bandom (Cobra Starship, The Like)
pairing: Vicky-T/Z Berg
length: 2,838
summary: Z raises a delicate blond eyebrow, and Victoria considers raising one right back, upping the ante in this bizarre game of who’s-more-chill chicken she and Z have ended up in. Baby's first barista AU! Written for bandom_holidays

The Heart No Longer Stirred
fandom: How To Get Away With Murder
pairing: Lila Stanguard/Rebecca Sutter
length: 3,310
summary: I am a Partially Deceased Syndrome Sufferer, and what I did in my untreated state was not my fault.

Lila knows all about affirmations, remembers her mother reciting back candy-bright words after the voice on a cassette when Lila was a child. She knows about the words you say to make them true because she's been doing it her whole life. She's one of their most cooperative patients at the treatment center. Still, sometimes she gets nightmares.

An In The Flesh AU

Heavy Walls
fandom: Shameless (US)
pairing: Mandy Milkovich/OFC, Mandy Milkovich/Lip Gallagher, gen
length: 2,544
summary:If there is no love in this world, then we will build a new world, and we will give it walls.

-Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated

(Basically the queer!Mandy fic of my heart)

Lions and Tigers and Bears
fandom: Bandom (JJAMZ, Ryan Ross is his own fandom)
pairing: Z & Ryan
length: 10,747
summary: Ryan and Z work a lot better as friends than they did as boyfriend and girlfriend. It might have been better if they’d figured that out before they tried to date, but better late than never, right? Together, they spend some time remembering that growing up is a process that never ends, and that sometimes it’s a process that’s easier to deal with when you leave yourself some time to smell the flowers (metaphorically) and feed the ducks (not metaphorically). Written for Bandom Big Bang!

Postcards From Greece
fandom: Ryan Ross is his own fandom
pairing: gen
length: 948
summary: Ryan goes to Greece and thinks about postcards a lot.

Old jokes don't die, they just wait for the next generation
fandom: MCU, Captain America Movies
pairing: gen
length: 107
summary: Drabblicious snatch of conversation

The beginning after the end
fandom: John Dies At The End
pairing: John/Dave/Amy
length: 2,581
summary: Response to the prompt: john/dave/amy we all survived the spider apocalypse sex!

I said, "Let's find a roof."

She said, "Let's find a bed."

ghost fingers
fandom: John Dies At The End
pairing: Dave/Amy
length: 1,320
summary: For the prompt on the John Dies at The End kink meme, "Amy/Any masturbation, Amy masturbates, or gives someone a hand-job, using her ghost hand."

fandom: Young Avengers, Hawkeye
pairing: Kate/America
length: 1,042
summary: Kate gives America an archery lesson.

A little more conversation
fandom: Young Avengers
pairing: Teddy Altman/Billy Kaplan, David Alleyne/Tommy Shepherd, Kate Bishop/America Chavez
length: 1899
summary: Five conversations that managed to happen without Kate Bishop’s help. Missing scene fic from v2. Technically a series of codas to my longer Young Avengers piece, Of All Possible Worlds

I want to pull a Joey Comeau here and just start off with, "Hey, I'm Sidney and I've been thinking about sex," but, you know, that's not even true.

I've been thinking about sexuality, though, mine and just in general. I haven't come to any conclusions, really, except that mine is really nebulous, I think, and also that the fact that I lie to myself a lot about why I do the things I do doesn't make this kind of thing any easier to figure out. And there's probably a reason I've always been nervous about slapping labels on shit.


I wrote a Young Avengers story, because did I mention? I got really into the Young Avengers recently.

It is called Of All Possible Worlds and it mostly consists of an outpouring of feelings about Kate Bishop strung together by missing scene fic conversations-that-should-have-been from v2. Also, I ship Kate Bishop with everyone, so fair warning.

Hope you all are doing well! I feel really boring lately, which is probably why I don't have much to report, but you guys are awesome, I'm going to try to be around online more often in the near future.

Hey guys!

So, I graduated from college. Who among us truly thought this day would come? The graduating itself wasn't particularly interesting, though. You know what's interesting? Memes.

The first one, I grabbed from [personal profile] inlovewithnight

1. Everyone should post their ten most CRUCIAL CRUCIAL CRUCIAL-ASS movies, like the movies that explain everything about yourselves in your current incarnations (not necessarily your ten favorite movies but the ten movies that you, as a person existing currently, feel would help people get to know you) (they can change later on obviously).

1) practical magic
2) oliver!
3) a little romance
4) x2
5) trainspotting
6) history boys
7) the social network
8) shakespeare in love
9) absolute beginners
10) saved!

2. Sort by number of plays in itunes or whatever equivalent you have, and count out the top ten songs by the top ten artists--that is, if someone is the artist on your number one song and also on your number three, count them for number one, and count the next one down as the third, so that each artist only shows up once.

My itunes got pretty much rebuilt from scratch when my computer crashed three years ago, so this is a 'most played in the past three years' list.

1) chicago, spring standards
2) jesus etc., wilco
3) 1979 (smashing pumpkins cover), bad rabbits
4) challengers, the new pornographers
5) where i belong, ryan ross
6) sink, swim, laura stevenson
7) the absence of god, rilo kiley
8) empty streets, ghost beach
9) cleverly disguised, jjamz
10) will do, tv on the radio

I also wrote a couple of things, these past few weeks:

title: Life Pumping Through me
fandom: Before Sunrise
summary: Five times Celine and Jesse missed each other after Before Sunrise, and one time they didn't have to.

title: Outrageous Fortune
fandom: Shameless (US)
summary: Debbie Gallagher and “if music be the food of love, can you turn that bullshit off?” Takes place during and just after the last season.

First of all, or I will forget, I swear the three yuletide treats I wrote:

carcinogenic, which is a The Place Beyond The Pines future fic, and my longest treat of the year, clocking in at just over 4k, because I am apparently all about the brevity these days? A.J./Jason

night is young, and Empires/Happy Endings crossover for [personal profile] fifteendozentimes because we've talked about what an awesome combination that would be, and I couldn't resist. I tried to do something kind of tonally similar to the energy of the show, and I'm reasonably happy with how it turned out. I'd kind of like to try writing a bit more in this universe, so we'll see.

alike in dignity, a Slings and Arrows ficlet, gen about Geoffrey and Darren being frenemies.

Also, I sort of decided, spur-of-the-moment, to do the [community profile] snowflake_challenge for January. First day is:

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Growing Pains is a character study of Jessica Campion from the Swordspoint books. It's a few years old, and definitely one of those things I might write differently if I was doing it now, but it means a lot to me because it was the first thing I ever wrote where I got caught up in it the way I do when I'm reading--I was excited to get back to it when I got home, I couldn't wait to work on it next, and, I think most importantly, I felt like would rather be writing it than reading anything anyone else had written at that moment.

I still love Jessica, I think she's a tragically under-used character in the series, and one of these days, I'm going to get back to writing something serious about her. My personal favorite line from it: She’s also got the wind on her face and the sun at her back and a little splinter of guilt in her heart where the family that raised her used to be.

Things Fall Apart Butcher/Sisky post-split fic that totally shows my love of characters behaving badly, figuring things out, and growing up. My Edmund Pevensie love showing, essentially. Also, it wouldn't be a bandom story by me if it didn't include talking on the phone and cats (except for my The Like fic, for some reason, which has stayed relatively phone-calls-and-cats-free).

and finally, Lift up the receiver, I'll make you a believer, my girl!Mike Carden/Laura Stevenson post-TAI-split fic. Which sounds really obscure, but it's essentially gen fic about girl!Carden figuring out life after The Academy Is..., part of which happens while she is conducting a long distance relationship with a cute girl. It is locked to AO3 users, because Laura Stevenson is not that famous, and also I am one of two people who has written fic about her on AO3, and I am nervous she will find it (if she finds it when it's locked because she has an account, on the other hand, that might be kind of cool).
