Hey you!!

First off, I want to say that I am so excited that you are creating for me!! :D Second: I am a huge rambler - but you already know that from my messy, lengthy prompts XD - so this letter is about to be extra long. BUT please know that optional details are optional. I love genfic so I'm pretty much guaranteed to love what you do. Take them prompts and go wherever the muse blows you - combine, mix and match, get inspired and go sideways with it, whatever, it's all good. :D

Lastly before I get super rambling: THANK YOU, you are super rad for doing this challenge, whether it be fic or art or vid or whatever else. <3

(My speak below is mostly aimed at an author, but whatever applies to art, applies to art as well. :D)

higher and higher baby )

So, I had this fic idea like... after The Avengers came out. And I started and stopped it for years after - loved the idea but couldn't wrestle it, so I shelved it. Loved it again, but shortly after starting it, it was too overwhelming, so it was shelved. Loved, too much research or probelms or couldn't sort it and untangle it, etc, shelved it. Over and over forever. Then finally, I committed myself to finishing it (anyone who knows me, I have this thing about finishing projects like this that I start, lol), I fought with it a bunch more - lots of brainstorming with pals, various beta help, lots of me whining and complaining and trying to decide if this whole thing was even worth it. And then the [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang came around and I thought "OKAY. ONCE AND FOR ALL."

That's the background story. XD Now, we're here, a day after my official posting day on the [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang, and guess what? IT'S. HERE. Or rather, Part 1 (of 3) is here, BUT STILL. I can't describe how good it feels to FINALLY be getting this story out in the world, omw.

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 )

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 )

Holy cow, I don't know how I made it. And frankly, I'm still not happy with my fic - I still think it needs a lot of help - BUT the deadline has passed, Debut Day has passed, and my brain is an uncreative, wrung dry, pile of MUSH, plus I feel just over it, lol. So maybe once I've recovered, I'll take another pass at it.

mushy mushy brains )

Bang Update

Aug. 4th, 2012 01:52 pm
red_b_rackham: (Default)
So right now I have about 20k written (with another rough 3k of extra scenes that I've written pieces of, but haven't gotten to in the linear progression of the fic yet). I've adopted a sort of "No Looking Back" policy, which means I'm trying to just pound it all out and not reading back what I wrote to pick, edit, trim, etc.
trying is the key word )
Fic Title: The Ruler & The Killer, Baby
Fandom: Hunger Games
Pairing: Cato/Katniss
Rating/Warnings: strong PG-13 (for some language, mature content and general, er, Cato)
Prompt: Cato/Katniss - Dark AU, "Broken looks good on you."
For: JD_Pendergast

oh you belong to me come on we should get it goin... you don't talk you don't say nothin ok )
Alright, LJ is acting funny for some reason for me - I was just able to post short replies to various comments in the Girl on Fire ficathon, but then when I tried to post my fills, it just was giving me captcha codes forever and won't post. So rather than fighting the dang thing, I'm trying another approach. ;)

dead already )

the way out )

Fic Title: Spies Like Us
Fandom: Hunger Games
Pairing: Not really any, but a touch of Gale/Katniss, Peeta/Katniss and Haymitch/Katniss if you want
Rating/Warnings: PG-13
Prompt: gen, SPY AU!!11!

For the Girl on Fire Ficathon at [livejournal.com profile] kolms. (GUYS, it's SO fun and SO addicting, and the quality of writing is OFF THE CHARTS and I fear I suffer by comparison but I love everyone's prompts and fills SO MUCH *is overexcited*)

it's so quiet here and i feel so cold )

Ok, I know this is turning into like the tenth post in a night at this rate, but I was just glancing at old entries and realized as well as an art updated, I should throw up a fic/vid update (fairly small this time). And even though I really should be packing (moving in a few weeks) or going to bed (haven't been feeling well all day) I am way too good at procrastinating to stop now. ;) Fics and vids after la cut...
you can live the life you like you can even marry harry but mess around with ike )

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.
