This could be fun! And maybe I'll post more, haha?

Pick any story I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you the equivalent of a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you’d expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

My fic is here.

You know, having not used my journal for so long, I kind of forgot about crossposting fic and photosets here. :D

But here's something I did in December for [tumblr.com profile] gameofshipschallenges' Until Hell Freezes Over:

YESSSSSSSS PEOPLE REMIXED MY FIC!

the pack survives (blood shed and things lost remix) (1118 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: A Song of Ice and Fire - George R. R. Martin
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Arya Stark & Sansa Stark
Characters: Arya Stark, Sansa Stark
Additional Tags: Sister-Sister Relationship, Future Fic, Remix
Summary:


Freedom might have been something else, before. Now, freedom is this. Freedom is Petyr Baelish's blood on her hands, on her dress, freedom is this. Freedom is gutting him like her uncle Brandon once did, but finishing the job.

Freedom is watching Petyr Baelish die.



An awsome remix of my fic, The Pack Survives! I’m thrilled that someone took my Sansa & Arya ficlet and expanded upon it. Really nice! Go, read, enjoy!


And then someone remixed ANOTHER fic, for Remix Madness:

Dozens upon dozens of them (Languages Remix) (1731 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia - All Media Types
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Susan Pevensie
Additional Tags: Canonical Character Death, Languages, The Problem of Susan
Summary:

Susan has always been good with words.


She loves them, words and languages, the simplicity of them, the complexity of them.



This was from a ficlet I wrote for the Three Sentence Ficathon one year, and omg I love how it got expanded and turned into a whole story!

I wrote two (that’s right, two!) stories for this year’s Remix. If you want to guess which ones they were, I will reward anyone who guesses correctly with a ficlet of their choice!
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
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Saturday Night Live, Saturday Night Live RPF, Pundit & Broadcast Journalist RPF (US)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Seth Meyers/Stefon
Characters: Seth Meyers, Stefon (Saturday Night Live), Anderson Cooper
Additional Tags: Boxing & Fisticuffs, Clubbing, Drinking, Yuletide
Summary:

The fic that answers the question: why aren't there more fics where Seth Meyers fights Anderson Cooper for Stefon's love? Featuring Viola Gayvis, the broken bottle firewalk down the block from the Port Authority, the promoter duo of Don King and Don Lemon, and MTV's Dan Cortese.



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! And then give the anonymous writer all the praise and kudos they deserve because this is the most fabulous Yuletide fic EVER.

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

Meme time!

Sep. 7th, 2014 10:39 pm
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!

snacky: (Default)
Hey let's do a meme, wouldn't that be fun! As seen on tumblr!

Leave a comment with one of these and I'll post, without editing*:

FIRST — the first two sentences of my current project
LAST — the most recently written two sentences of my current project
NEXT — the next line. meaning i will finish the sentence I’m on and write a new one, which you’ll get.
[insert prompt here] — you post a prompt, and i’ll write three sentences based on that prompt, set in the same time/setting as my current project
THE END — i’ll make up an ending, or post the ending if i’ve written it
BEFORE THE BEGINNING — three sentences (or more) about something that happened before the plot of my current project
POV — something that’s already happened, retold from another character’s perspective

*okay, I might have to edit some names out of an exchange fic, but that's about it.

Hit me up!
snacky: (narnia vdt susan writing)
A little more of Susan Pevensie in Westeros, at the Wall with Jon Snow. This is for [personal profile] edenfalling who asked for Susan/Jon Snow, family. I posted this on tumblr last night, but it's a little expanded now.

More of that fic I'm not writing... )
snacky: (narnia susan)
So here's another scene from the Narnia/ASOIAF fic I'm not writing, where Susan ends up at the Wall, when Jon Snow finds and sounds her horn...

Sometimes I write scenes out of order... )

Unbetaed, obviously.
snacky: (narnia susan)
So I am totally not writing a Narnia/ASOIAF crossover where Susan Pevensie ends up in Westeros after the trainwreck.

I mean, I keep telling myself that and yet... )

Unbetaed, obviously.
snacky: (narnia vdt susan writing)
Remix writers were revealed yesterday, so time to chat about that! :D

First up, two of my stories were remixed, one for Remix proper and one for Remix Madness.

You Were A Vampire (The Belong to the Shadows remix) (1055 words) by WingedFlight
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Caspian/Susan Pevensie
Characters: Caspian (Narnia), Peter Pevensie, Susan Pevensie, Edmund Pevensie, Lucy Pevensie
Additional Tags: vampire!AU
Summary:

His people have always belonged to the shadows.



Winged did such a great job expanding some of my 3 Sentence Ficathon fills about vampire-Caspian, and his interactions with each of the Pevensies. I love how she flipped the POV, and how she really ramped up the sense of dread, and Caspian's ruthlessness in taking what he wants. Delightfully creepy!



The Palace Beautiful (Valley of the Shadow of Death Remix) (464 words) by MiraMira
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Little Women - Louisa May Alcott
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Marmee March, Elizabeth March
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Space, Artificial Intelligence, Family, Grief/Mourning, Wordcount: 100-500
Summary:

Marmee is truly glad and grateful to have *all* her daughters with her on the journey to their new home, in spirit if not body. And yet, there are still things she misses.



Oh man, an unexpected treat! MiraMira expands on my Little Women in Spaaaaaaaace AU, by giving us Marmee's POV on Beth's situation. I love it - Marmee is sensible and strong and heartbroken, all at once, just as you'd expect. Really well done!

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

And now the stories I wrote!

Howl When We're Apart (This One's For the The Girls Remix) (2150 words) by Snacky
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: A Song of Ice and Fire - George R. R. Martin
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: sansa stark & arya stark
Characters: Arya Stark, Sansa Stark
Additional Tags: Remix, Remix Redux, Alternate Universe, Future Fic, Female-Centric, Female Characters
Summary:

Another girl on a horse, riding through the winds and snows of winter as only Northern girls could.



This is a remix of comradeocean's The Ballad of the Blacksmith Prince. When I was looking at her stories and seeing what I could remix, the note at the end of this one, asking for a Sansa-and-Arya-centric remix hit me, and I wanted to see if I could pull it off.

This got a little long... )

My second story was a pinch-hit!

It's Hard Out There for a Princess (The Princess Peony Pavane) (2296 words) by Snacky
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Edmund Pevensie, Susan Pevensie, Princess Peony (OC)
Additional Tags: Character Study, POV Female Character
Summary:

Even a Dim Princess has her reasons, despite what a Just King might believe.



I got this pinch-hit at the last minute, but it took me only a few minutes to decide which story of Ruth's I was going to Remix.

More ramblings... )

I had two other stories I was going to post for Remix Madness (another Narnia one and another ASOIAF one! I am sadly predictable :D), but with the pinch-hit, I didn't have time to finish them properly, so I guess I'll keep those for next year.
snacky: (narnia susan)
So I signed up for Remix Madness and if you've ever wanted to remix one of my stories, you can find them all here!

The rules and sign up for Remix Madness are here, if you'd like to sign up too. Basically, you sign up and allow people to remix your stories, and then you can remix any you like, from the list of participants. You don't have to have participated in Remix to sign up for Remix Madness, and there's no minimum word count. So go, sign up, remix away!
snacky: (snacky summer snax)
Hey, have that first lines meme that's going around:

The first lines of my last 21 stories, from newest to oldest

All back here... )

If you want to ask me anything about any of these lines, like, "why did you want to start the story like THAT?" I will do my best to answer. :D
