  1. Summary

    Metafiction gone wild? Mostly this is me talking back to much more respectable writes and journalists months, years or decades after the fact about the politics of literature and the process of producing and consuming (er I mean creating and sharing) it. Although, once My Evil Twin Gets involved... even I might feel the sting of the tongue lash a little.

  2. Summary

    This series is made up of squares I pieced for All Things Proceed from Passion and it's offshoot series that ended up not fitting into the quilt. There were some I liked too much to cut up or through away. As I come across them while getting each chapter of those series ready to publish, I am putting them more or less in order, but many of them are mutually exclusive and any of them can (or at least might as well) stand alone.

    Canon compliance? BtVS 1-7 is the 'cannon', All things Proceed from Passion is the rocket launcher, Blood Screaming is the M-16, It's All Terribly Simple is the Colt 45, and this is the little gun I keep in my purse.

    Summary

    The stake slipped from her fingers, and she had to take a deep breath to stave off the dizziness descending on her like a hood over her head. "You—I thought you were dead."

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Overall, this is really lovely and touching and I highly recomend it. What the author does with the issue of menstrual flow is shockingly beautiful and life/love affirming.

    I will warn folks, though, that some of the mechanics of the bathroom seen were a bit creepy/triggery for my taste. Particularly when 'stop' (regarless of the admittedly silly reason) is met not with stopping while talking out the reason but by continuing while arguing the validity of the reason. I just don't see that passing as acceptable between these two. Not after 6 years, not ever.
    Still it didn't ruin the fic for me. It was just an off note that jangled unexpectedly and that I wish i had been warned about.

    Summary

    “It’s locked.”

    “What?”

    “It’s locked.”

    “Very funny. Now open the door, Sherlock. I can hardly breathe in here.”

    “I’m not joking, John. It’s locked.”

    It’s pitch black inside the small coat closet in Dr. Bunbury’s surgery, but John thinks he can see Sherlock’s pale brow furrow as he pulls at the nob to the door, none-the-less.

    “I swear to god, Sherlock, if this is your idea of a joke, I’m going to…”

    “It’s not a joke, John.” There’s something thready, and slightly panicked running beneath the surface of that reply.

    “Here, let me.” John lightly bats Sherlock’s hands out of the way, and gives the nob a good screw himself. When it refuses to give, he throws his shoulder against the door with as much force as he can muster in the tight space. Predictably it doesn’t budge.

    He sighs. “Well, this is just great.”

    “It’s hardly my fault, John.”

    “It was your idea to hide in here!!”

    “It wasn’t. It was yours! I said to get under the desk.”

    “Like that’s effective! And I never once said ‘closet’.”

    Sherlock sniffs indignantly. “It’s your thing, John. You always choose the closet.”

    This is the best fic (or frankly any art/literature) about being in the closet and coming out that I have ever read.

    Summary

    Merlyn arrives in Camelot only to run into the annoyingly handsome Prince Arthur - not that she'll tell him that. After saving his life she gets stuck as his servant, which according to the Dragon is a good thing. Apparently she and Arthur have a great destiny that will unite Albion under his rule- if she can keep him alive that long.
    Good thing she has magic. Too bad she can't tell Arthur.
    Told from Merlyn and Arthur's point of view.
    Not sure how long this will go on for. At the very least expect through s3.

    This makes a complete and total absence of sense, but it's so hot I could honestly give a fuck what sense it makes.

    Summary

    After reading the script for Teen Wolf season five, two time-travelling witches set out on a quest to save papa Stiles from his impending death by kidnapping him, dragging him (in a totally un-creepy fashion) into their police-box blue van, spiriting him away to the Room of Requirement.

    Meanwhile in Beacon Hills, Derek admits to seeing Stiles' father get abducted while lurking in general outside of Stiles' house, and team Wolfie (they might not have agreed on the name) sets out on a rescue mission.

    For the witches, things starts to get slightly out of hand (so many fandoms, so little time) and soon they have several doomed characters trapped in the Room of Requirement (it's for their own good!) and are being chased not only by team Wolfie, but by angry script writers.

    No good deed goes unpunished.
