2013 Fannish Roundup

We are here again, my dear friends. It is time for the annual reckoning, that fannish evaluation that decides whether we live or die or join tumblr!

Okay, so I already joined/started actually using tumblr. What can I say? I appreciate the daily scroll of pretty! Tumblr is actually not a bad place for me right now. Most of the time, it involves pretty pictures of pretty people, cute animals, or funny comics. Some of the time, there are links to meta and essays that make me think. Sometimes there is even fic--though honestly, fic was a very small part of my life this year.

Still, I did write some.

Teamwork. Stargate SG-1, Sam/Jack.
Two Things Sam and Janet Don't Have in Common (and One Thing They Do). Stargate SG-1, Gen.

TWO?! I ONLY WROTE TWO FICS?! I guess that means I have to stay on tumblr.

I re-watched Legend of the Seeker (again). The epic hair, forbidden love, cheesy humor, beautiful scenery, pretty people, shiny swords, and female friendships all make me very happy--and the show is only two seasons long, which makes it easy to rewatch.

I got very fannish about Once Upon a Time.

I started a Farscape re-watch that I didn't finish… yet. I'll get there. It's SUCH a good show, but I totally got sucked into a Doctor Who rewatch instead--I was trying to get caught up for the Day of the Doctor, and I ended up starting back with Nine, because I could and because I had to wait a very long time for the latest DVDs from the library. I have part of a post put together about the Awesomeness of Donna Noble, which I hope to get together and post early in 2014.

However, I also tried to watch Torchwood: Miracle Day. Ugh. Just… ugh. Gave up.

I was really, really, really obsessed with Iron Man 3.

2012 Fic Roundup and Fannish things that were not Fic

Five Lovers Helen Never Took. Sanctuary, Helen/OMC, Helen/OFC, Helen/John, Helen/James, Helen/Nikola.
Close to Perfect. Stargate SG-1, Sam/Jack.
Bedroom Situation. Stargate SG-1, Sam/Jack.
Pairings I have (most likely) not written. Meme responses. Sam/Caldwell, Sam/Rodney, Jack/Janet, GLaDOS/Bird, Darcy/Elizabeth, Hailey/Grogan, Daniel Jackson/Dana Scully.

Okay, yes, there are only four links. That averages out to one each quarter, as long as I include the meme responses. I don't know that I can even pick a favorite, because they are all so precious--not because they are so amazing, but because there are so few of them. It's a scarcity thing. What the Stargate ones show is that I'm still completely obsessed with Sam/Jack, and still have a tendre for the bed-sharing cliche.


Fannish things I did that were not fic
I posted my Super Nostalgic Sam/Jack recs list, which was totally fun and non-comprehensive.
I fell in love with SG-1 all over again.
I made up a silly poll to ask you who was the best character of all time and got the
most awesome Sam Carter love fest in my comments.

My various fannish obsessions throughout 2012
Fringe
Stargate SG-1
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Really, really obsessed. Though I didn't write fic for it. Ugh. WHEN WILL I NEED TO WRITE COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF FIC FOR THINGS AGAIN?!)
Legend of the Seeker
The Avengers
Once Upon a Time

Title: Close to Perfect
Fandom: Stargate SG-1
Rating: PG
Category: Fluff
Pairing: Sam/Jack
Summary: If something was going to happen, it would happen soon. AU post-Moebius.
Notes: I've been feeling nostalgic lately, and reading a lot of Sam/Jack fic. I thought, "Hey, if I'm feeling nostalgic, maybe someone else is, too." So I dove into my WIP folder and found this nicely indulgent little thing, waiting for a decent ending.

2011 Fic Roundup

Daniel/Vala hand-kissing drabble. Stargate, Daniel/Vala.
Three Times Sam and Jack Didn't Touch. Stargate, Sam/Jack.
Keeping Secrets Doesn't Work if You Use Real Names. Stargate, Sam/Vala.
Rules. Stargate, Sam/Jack.
Four Walls and a Blaster. Star Wars, Han. Leia.

Stick Figure Comics. Stargate. (Image Heavy)


I'm not answering the standard questions this year, because I only wrote five stories. I think my two favorites are Four Walls and a Blaster and Keeping Secrets Doesn't Work if You Use Real Names, but the Sam/Jack fluff is always a happy thing, too. I just didn't write enough, and I think that's partly because I've said just about everything I wanted/needed to say about Sam/Jack, and partly because no new fandoms have made me fic them (yet).

I actually have a few things sitting around on my hard drive, waiting for endings or polishing or for me to screw up the courage to post them. If nothing else, I'll plan on a fic amnesty day sometime soon.

Title: Keeping Secrets Doesn't Work if You Use Real Names
Fandom: Stargate SG-1
Rating: PG
Category: Fluffy Angst
Pairing/Characters: Sam/Vala.
Summary: Vala's got a new hobby, but it could end up getting SG-1 in trouble.
Notes: Okay, so everyone and their mothers had vampires on the brain, and I have an entire AU in my head where the Goa'uld are literal, space-faring vampires. But then I realized that the story I really wanted to tell was a little different. So if you want the Vampiric Goa'uld AU, you're going to have to ask Vala instead. This is set before Don't Ask, Don't Tell bit the dust.

So, um, I was going through my WIP folder last night...

I have a couple of fics or parts of fics that are being relegated to my "Probably Will Never Post" folder, in which fics I wrote either too early or too late can rest comfortably without disturbing me by actually being on my journal, unlike some fics I could name.

These include an "Aliens (Tried to) Make Them Do It" for Sam/Jack that just. No. Seriously, if I posted it, you would all tilt your heads to the sides and go "Okay, who wrote this and why on Earth did Trout steal it?"

Then there's the amnesiac Sam/Jack fic in which the point of view changes every sentence and everyone is wildly OOC.

Another one involved babies.

Below the cut are vague descriptions of WIPs that might still see the light of day )

You're totally going to make me post these, aren't you?

WRITING STUFF

No, that subject heading is not misleading. This post is about WRITING. Namely my own! That is to say, I WROTE STUFF TODAY. Well, I wrote stuff last week, too, but it was awful maudlin Sam/Jack. I mean, really terrible. You don't believe me, do you?

Okay, fine. I'll prove it to you:

It's so maudlin even Jack knows )

You see why I can't post that, right? Right?

I'm putting it out there because it's WORDS and because maybe it will help me get over my fear of failure in writing.

Anyway, I not only wrote that bit up there, but today I wrote over 1,000 words that I didn't immediately want to delete! That's not saying that they'll ever see the light of the internet, but still! Words!

I also wrote a drabble for the Hand-Kissing Promptathon, which I think is a fabulous idea but I had no idea where to even start. Apparently my brain decided to go with Daniel/Vala. IDEK. You're allowed to think and/or tell me the drabble is terrible. I'm really not so sure about it myself.

Anyway... WORDS!
