Hey, it's here just slightly before a full year - that's good, right? XD

tried my best and went right back to sleep )

Dear fabulous author,

Hey and welcome to getting matched with me! I'm a rambler and I tried to keep it short but um. Ya. First off, I wanted to emphasis that optional details are optional, so please feel free to do your thang and don't feel pressured whatsoever by my rambling thoughts. These are merely ideas, and you are awesome. :)

now i gotta cut loose / footloose / kick off your sunday shoes )
Hello Beautiful Gifter!!

So, this is my first Summergen and I am very excited to be a part of it. I adore gen fic and there is not enough of it in the world. ;D I am excited that you've been matched with me and can't wait to see what you come up with!! And hey, if you're doing art instead, AWESOME!!

I want you to know a few things before I start here: first, I am no good at nice, cool one-liner type prompts (as you saw XD) and apologize for my rambling chunks of text. Second, my "prompts" are 100% just ideas and if the muse pulls you elsewhere or my ramblings inspired you in some random way, go with it!! And this letter? Optional details are optional!! Please don't let me cramp your style. :) My speak below is mostly aimed at an author, but whatever applies to art, applies to art as well. :)

carry on my wayward son )

Fic Round Up

Hey look! A fic update that's not an entire year overdue! PROGRESS! XD

rise up ting ting like glitter )

Dear beautiful Author,

So this is my very first Yuletide! I somehow have been very active in fanfic for something like 10 years and yet managed to never hear about Yuletide until just this past summer. I’m excited to join in finally (and admittedly totally nervous because I’m worried about messing something up XD).

These are just ideas and guidelines and if the muse takes you somewhere else, go for it! I apologize in advance if this is a lot – optional details are optional – so don’t let this cramp your style and please don’t feel pressured in any way!! You are magnificent human for doing this, in any capacity. :D

oh don't you dare look back just keep your eyes on me )

Fic Round Up!

red_b_rackham: (dr. horrible)
So, as if you haven't noticed, I am horrible at keeping my LJ up to date? XD But it's way past time for another fic round up - looks like the last one was more than a year ago. Ooops.

fight the good fight )

It's been a while since I posted here - I've had a lot going on, both real life and elsewhere online. My newest addiction is the Beta Branch forum, where a bunch of fantastic people and fantastic writers share their fics for beta-ing, and we flail about TV and movies and Avengers and stuff. It's the best, I love it! But it does take up a ton of my time, as I enjoy posting and betaing for everybody on there and I am not a fast beta, lol.

OH. AND SUPERNATURAL. More specifically, Dean Winchester. I'm halfway through season 4, and I cannot love Dean more. I am obsessed with his face. (And one of these days I'll have to do a TV update of sorts - so many things have been watched. Torchwood, Buffy, Angel... new shows like Sleepy Hollow, Almost Human...)

Anyways, in other news, HAPPY NEW YEAR and stuff! Hopefully I can around to posting here a bit more often, as I don't want to neglect my LJ. ;D

In the meantime, because I haven't done one in aaaages, here is a fic update. Oh! And I'm on AO3 now, so you can now conveniently read me on FF and AO3. If you prefer to read on AO3, here's a link to me profie: http://archiveofourown.org/users/red_b_rackham . (I don't have every fic up on there, but I do have a number of them, and add anything new I post there at the same time I post on FF). Last time I did a fic update was like 2011 (whoa. whoops.), so this might be lengthy, lol.

i can save the world but lose you )
Another year, another Het Bang sign up. Before I get going on that, a few things: this entry will contain pointless Het Bang ramblings. I was going to spew about some Game of Thrones stuff, but I have a feeling that's going to get long, or in any event, should be a separate entry, so I will do that sometime.
all of your wallowing is unbecoming )
Two challenges I might eventually try myself, below the cut. Take a gander!
underused and obscure! )
Ok, here is the first batch of Challenges for you to write!

There's a bit of variety, but I do tend to stick to fandoms I know when issuing challenges simply so that I can read it (if it's a fandom I'm not at all familiar with, I can't exactly "judge" it, you know?). Anyways, it's totally fine to use these challenges to jump start your writing in any fandom, even if the challenge is issued for say Lost, and you use it write a King Arthur story or something. i challenge you to... a duel? )
Hey all! First off, GREAT news: I have finally scraped enough money together to purchase my CS5 upgrade, so it should be in my possession within a couple weeks, so prepare yourself for an abrupt explosion of art. I can only imagine I'm going to go wild, seeing as how I basically have gone cold turkey since June/July-ish. *sigh*

Anyways, in the meantime, I've been quite productive in other ways. In the post before this one, I linked you to the Terminator vid I made, and in this post, I'll link you to the other two I've done, as well as do a quick fic round up... after the jump.
walk like an egyptian! )

Most of you already follow me on Fanfiction.net (here) but for those of you who don't, I want to do a quick round-up of my recent fics. Click on the titles to go read and reviews and/or comments are super appreciated (you don't have to be registered there to leave one). :) Check the rest out under the cut.

Title: All The Things He's Not
Summary: Castle isn't super strong or much of a runner and he's certainly never attempted to break down a door before. But there he is, running and breaking down doors, because he can't consider the possibility that she's gone. Castle/Beckett Oneshot.
Genre: Castle
Characters and/or Ships: Castle/Beckett
Rating: PG
tick, tick, BOOM )
Ok, I still have no title for this fic that I'm writing. I suck at titles and they're always so hard to come up with. Guh. I'll have to get on that.

Anyways! What I'm for is to give you the rest of chapter two to read! As just a tiny bit more of a tease to the story, and because I recently got a bout of inspiration and am celebrating that fact. ;D Enjoy! Comments greatly appreciated.

I know you're wondering when, I know you're wondering when... )
Thanks to the miraculous program entitled Word Repair, downloaded from the internet, I have saved most of my story and notes. *CHEER* There were random words and lines missing and mixed up, missing punctuation, weird symbols where there should've been dashes or dot-dot-dots, but all in all it was mostly salavaged.

Now, I wasn't going to give you guys anymore for a while, like until I was much farther along, but in celebration of not looing everything, I'm going to give just a little more: the beginning of chapter 2. Enjoy! And feedback very much wanted. :D

...please sir, some more? )

Alrighty, I've got some great news and some horrible news.

The great news: As of now, I am working on a brand new George/Izzie story and it's going to be a long one. The idea came out of nowhere while I was driving one day. I spent almost an entire day creating a very difficult desktop, complete wth tricky photo manipulations. And then my good friend Nicola inspired me to get going and actually write the story! So Nic, this will be dedicated to you. :D And in a moment, I'll give you a chance to see chapter 1... which while it is rather short, it makes for a solid introduction into things. The only things you need to know is that this story will start sometime in later s5, but will be quite AU. The story is currently untitled and in the very early stages.

The bad news:
The word file where I had my outline, ideas, several scenes etc all written decided to up and be corrupt, so I've lost it all. I don't know how long it will take for me to get back what I had, or if it's possible to recover the file. I'm working on it.

Anyways, in the meantime...! I now present to you a sneak peek at the upcoming story, with the first draft of Chapter One. Enjoy, and feedback is oh-so-loved!

O'Malley 2.0... I would be lucky to be the new you... )
Finally! Here's the rest of the little prompt inspired onesies I wrote specifically for the 130th George/Izzie thread on Fanforum.com. Sorry these were so late, guys! But here they finally are. :) Enjoy! Comments are immensely appreciated.

Title: All I Want Is You, Part 2
Rating: Various, K-T
Summary: A collection of moments in the lives of George and Izzie.

Because there needs to be more George and Izzie in the world, I present to you a collection of prompt inspired little oneshot all about the pair that made Grey’s great to me. These are being posted exclusively on my LJ for a few weeks in honor of the Fanforum George/Izzie 130th thread celebration. Then later they'll be posted seperately or in small chunks over at fanfiction.net. Enjoy! Comments are greatly appreciated.

Title: All I Want Is You
Rating: Various, no more than T.

All I Want Is You )
I've been doing more reading and less writing of fanfiction lately and been finding a lot of things that drive me crazy. I couldn't figure out what to do about it until I had this LJ and thought it might be worthwhile to make sort of "guide" to fanficcing for newbies or oldbies who want some tips. I always do my best to help out other authors and a lot of other authors have helped me, so I'm combining my experience and their collective knowledge for this guide. I hope it helps anyone who reads it, even a little bit. :)

The Guide! )
