Okay, ASAP didn't end up being that soon, but here is my letter at last!

Hi! First off, thank you so much for writing for me! What follows is going to be a general idea of my likes and dislikes, and some more specific details and ideas, just in case you're interested in that. If you're not, no big deal! We matched on a fandom we both love, so I'll be glad to see what you come up with. Seriously, I am good with optional details are optional, so these are just some ideas -- use what you'd like, ignore what doesn't work for you. :)

Specific Fandoms:

Thank you again for writing for me (and for being patient with the letter)! I'm looking forward to the story and I'm sure I'll love it!

In case you were one of the people wondering!

Regarding Journalfen being down, I checked with the JF admins, and this is what I was told:

It's not down for good. They had to cancel the old servers while migrating to the new ones, because double server payments were too expensive. The problem is that the old LJ code is too hard to install on modern servers now, so they're going to have to try to get a dreamwidth codebase installed and then find a way to import the old entries.

So it's only the old LJ codebase that's gone for good. Evidently it will be tricky importing all the old entries and comments, and it might take a while, but they're pretty sure they can do it!

There should be a placeholder up at journalfen.net soon, explaining this! HERE IT IS!

Three Sentence Ficathon

Hey folks! [personal profile] rthstewart is hosting the Three Sentence Ficathon on DW!

It's always a fun ficfest -- leave as many prompts as you want and answer as many as you'd like, and multiple fills are always allowed. Multifandom, of course, for all the big fandoms and the tiny fandoms of your heart. Anon prompts and fills are welcome!
snacky: (Yuletide)
Unfortunately I had to drop out of Yuletide this year, but. BUT! I STILL GOT THE GREATEST STORY IN THE WORLD!

No, your story isn't greater. Yes, I will fight you on this -- which is appropriate, because my story features a fight:

This Fic Has Everything (2140 words) by Anonymous

Holy smokes! This fic truly lives up to its title. If you, like me, love Stefon and Seth Meyers, DO NOT HESITATE! Read this immediately because you will laugh your ass off, guaranteed!

snacky: (narnia vdt susan writing)
Today was the day for reveals for the 2014 Narnia Fic Exchange and for NFE Madness, so let's talk about fic.

First off, I received the most gorgeous story:

As The Waves Make Towards The Pebbl'd Shore (3928 words) by rthstewart
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Caspian/Peter Pevensie
Characters: Caspian (Narnia), Peter Pevensie
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Time Shenanigans
Summary:

Once you are dead, you cannot want wrong things anymore. Caspian wants another 5 minutes on a round world.



Ruth put so much care and effort into making this story perfect for me, and I just LOVE it! Peter/Caspian! My beloved OTP! Getting a chance at a happy-for-a-while, if not a happy ever after! It's perfect and sweet, and she used so much of my headcanon in this (Peter being a musician, and Caspian an artist!) and it just made me grin from ear to ear as I read it.



Okay, on to the fic I wrote.

Endless Roads to Travel, Endless Lives to Live (3353 words) by Snacky
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Polly Plummer
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe
Summary:

Three adventures Polly Plummer never had, and two she gave to others.



This was written for [personal profile] redsnake05 for this prompt: I can't imagine Polly settling down to an ordinary life after her adventures. I'd be happy to see her back in England figuring out who she is and what she's doing, or perhaps a canon divergence where she and Digory get to have more adventures in Narnia or in other worlds. Perhaps there is a threat to the Tree during the Golden Age, and she and Digory get sent back to deal with it? Feel free to include other characters or OCs as needed.

I was so happy with this prompt! I have a lot of headcanon for Polly (OBVIOUSLY) and I always wanted her to have more adventures after The Magician's Nephew. Also, I didn't like that last glimpse of Polly we had in The Last Battle, so I wanted to write something that eased that a bit. I had SO MUCH FUN writing this. It could have been a lot longer, if I had more time - I wanted Polly to have a few more adventures - but as it was, it worked as a kind of five things fic: three adventures for Polly, and two that she had a hand in. I wanted to spend much more time on the day sorcery, because that was delightful to think about magical uses for. I feel like I could write a whole book about that. Maybe someday!



For NFE Madness I wrote a little ficlet for [personal profile] vialethe:

The World Spins Madly On (555 words) by Snacky
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis, The Silmarillion and other histories of Middle-Earth - J. R. R. Tolkien
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Maglor/Susan Pevensie
Characters: Susan Pevensie, Maglor
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe, Crossover, Crossover Pairings
Summary:

Just a quick ficlet of Susan Pevensie and Maglor living an eternal life



Because she loves Susan/Maglor and she's my partner in crime in crack ships. I had fun with this, because I love that ship too, and it's just fun to think of Susan and Maglor living forever with each other. I wanted to make this longer too, but oh, my terrible time management skills!
snacky: (narnia dawn treader)
The Narnia Fic Exchange stories went live today. It's a week before the authors are revealed, and if you want to try to guess what story I wrote, I will write you a ficlet of your choice (fandom/pairing I am familiar with) if you guess correctly! Find the stories here! :D

And if you feel like trying your hand at some Narnia fic, you can participate in NFE Madness! Pick from the prompts here, and post your story to this collection. You have a week to write a story (or stories!) and post them, and there is no length requirement! They will be revealed next Sunday.
snacky: (narnia susan archer queen)
A snippet from the ongoing Narnia/ASOIAF crossover crackfic. Susan Pevensie and Jon Snow, being feelsy and sassy after some post-reunion sexytimes.

I posted a short bit of this on tumblr, this is the longer version... )

For a story I'm not writing, I spend a lot of time working on it. :D
snacky: (outlander je suis prest)
Have you started watching yet?

Because, just in case you missed it the last time, KILT! THIGHS! KNEES!


Very powerful thighs at that.


Jumping in a kilt! Who knew how great that would look?


I think he was trying to flash the goods in this one.


Are you ready to watch yet?

Yes, we know, Jamie.

*************

Had the spinal injections today! Seems to have gone fairly well, but I'm awfully sore. Although that's the needles, I think.
snacky: (listen do you want to know a secret?)
So tomorrow I go for steroidal spinal injections. Finally. If all goes well, they should help ease the pain from the pinched nerve, and increase my mobility. If it doesn't go well, then... my only other option is surgery. So cross fingers for all going well! :D
snacky: (outlander je suis prest)
Seriously. Outlander. You should be watching.



Do you like a man in a kilt?


Do you, like me, live vicariously through, and tremendously envy, women with long necks?


How about snuggling in the rain with hotass strangers you just met?


Jamie no.


What. She's just checking his wound.


Claire doesn't want to hear any of your bitching.


SMUSH FACES! SMUSH FACES NOW!


Please take a look at Jamie's knees and thighs.


An eyefuck so powerful, she just got pregnant.


That's it, that's the show.

What are you waiting for? Go watch! NOW!


I know, Jamie. Je suis SO VERY prest!
snacky: (outlander je suis prest)
Are any of you watching Outlander? New favorite show! I spend my time yelling at the teevee when it's on though. "I HAVE SUCH NECK ENVY" when I see Claire; "JUST SMUSH FACES ALREADY" whenever Claire and Jamie eyefuck each other; and "JE SUIS SO VERY PREST!" every time I see Jamie's face (and knees. and thighs).

The only problem with this show is the theme song. It's great, don't get me wrong! But it is the stickiest earworm EVER. I have been walking around singing, "Sing me a song of a lass that is gone..." for the past three weeks. :(

It will never end.

Meme time!

Sep. 7th, 2014 10:39 pm
snacky: (snacky blowing bubbles)
Shall we have a meme?

Pick a line, and a pairing, for a microfic!

“Well that could have gone better.”
“I hope you know what you’re doing.”
“Does that hurt? It looks like it hurts.”
“He put you up to this, didn’t he?” (Alt, she/they)
“Are you kidding me? We are not ‘fine’!”
“Come out. Please.”
“Get it off, GET IT OFF!”
“I just wanted to see you.”
“Can I help?”
“I might reconsider, if…”
“This doesn’t feel right.”
“Do you want to like, go get a coffee?”
“So, come here often?”
“Maybe it would be better if we just stopped.”
“This is hard enough without you doing that.”
“I don’t want to have a baby.”
“Well no one asked me.”
“I’m not being paranoid!”
“Put me down for ‘no.”
“What do you remember?”
“Well, what did they say about me?”
“I told you this was a bad idea.”
“Oh relax, we’ll be fine.”
“Why didn’t you?”
“Are… are you cooking?”
snacky: (snacky summer snax)
For the meme, [personal profile] rthstewart asked for E or G or H:


E. Share one of your strengths.

Oh hard one! I am... not sure what my writing strengths are! I think sometimes I do a good job at capturing the feel of canon, even what I'm writing is pretty far from canon. One story I thought this went well in is Beth Finds the Palace Beautiful which is a cracky premise (Little Women in spaaaaaace!) but I really wanted to make it feel like the original canon, even though I had changed so much up.


G. Share a snippet from one of your favorite pieces of prose you've written and explain why you're proud of it.

Okay, this is from Sing Down the Stars, and I'm putting it behind a cut, because it spoils the ending of the story.

So this story is a Narnia fanfic, about Rilian after the events of The Silver Chair, and how returning to Narnia goes for him... )

I really liked this because I am never pleased with my endings, and this is one I liked. :D I like how it tied the threads of the story together - Rilian feeling like he no longer belonged, Rilian's memories of his mother and how they stargazed together, his mother being a strong presence in his story, despite being long dead - and how it worked to resolve the immediate issues, but didn't give Rilian an immediate "happy ever after."

H. Share a snippet from one of your favorite dialogue scenes you've written and explain why you're proud of it.

From New York Is a State of Mind, but Cicely Is a Way of Life:

Joel returns to Cicely for a visit, and Marilyn is waiting for him... )

I like this because the Marilyn and Joel interaction was so much fun to write! I wish I had several more scenes with them, because I thought they were hilarious (obviously I crack myself up, lol).
snacky: (snacky princess snax)
For the meme, [personal profile] musesfool gave me AL and AM:

AL. Talk about a review that made your day.

Pretty much ANY review makes my day, ngl. But I've had some really lovely ones! Basically any of the reviews for New York Is a State of Mind, but Cicely Is a Way of Life because so many people said such nice things about that fic. I often go back and reread them to cheer myself up when I am feeling down about my writing.


AM. Do you ever get rude reviews and how do you deal with them?

Very rarely, and it's usually only only on ff.net. I usually just play dumb in response, like, "Really? Thanks for letting me know!" Sometimes I want to be rude back, but it's not worth it.

Meme!

Long time readers of this journal, do you remember Poodle? In small world news, I saw her commenting on someone's facebook post the other day, and I ... didn't comment, I just shut the tab and haven't gone back to Facebook since.

I don't know if I could handle even a virtual version of Poodle in my life right now.

But in celebration of our near miss reunion, have one of Poodle's greatest hits!
