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 )
I've been posting about this on my tumblr but for anyone not on tumblr, I thought I would post here as well.

There's a project going on right now, that is an auction of fanworks/fan labor with proceeds going to charity, called "Fandom Trumps Hate". I thought it was a super cool thing and decided to put my name in the hat for it. I have no clue if anyone is at al interested in "bidding" on me for my stuff (there are so many people participating!), but I thought I might as well put myself out there in the name of several good causes. :) Even if you're not interested in bidding on me, I very much encourage you to go take a look at the other people participating and see if you can find something for you (here).

I personally will be offering fic, as well as beta services. I'll put all my information below, with relevant links. I'm really excited to do a fic (hopefully) so check out my offerings and hit me up. :) Hobey ho!

let's go )

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!

Sep. 29th, 2015 07:45 pm
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 )

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 )
Ok guys. The Mandatory Check-In post has gone up at [livejournal.com profile] het_bigbang. And I just need a few moments to whine and flail and think out loud, because I am this close to dropping out (*wince*). This could get very repetitive, incoherent and rambly (sorry).

help but i don't know how you can )
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 )

I can't believe it's been like a year. And despite the pain I put myself through by being the Queen of Procrastinia, and leaving everything to the 11th hour, I'm totally gonna sign up to do this Bang again. :D In theory, I'll be more organized and stuff. (Chya. You just wait for those whiny posts where I flail and complain and stay up ridiculously late and sign up for everything... ya, you've been warned.)

Also, [livejournal.com profile] irony_rocks was seeking some banners and stuff, I volunteered to make some. And I maybe kinda (totally) went overboard with the color choices here, so please feel free to not use/post/etc any of the following...

hobey ho let's go )
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 )

Hey! Ok, update finally. I finished the Bang! *does dance* And I completed the art, AND betaing the other fic. I got it all done. I feel like I'm going through with withdrawal in terms of writing - after how many weeks of hardcore writing, I have no more to do, haha! Anyways, so this post is full of linkage. :D

challenge... COMPLETE )
So, because I am an insane person, I decided to sign up for my first Big Bang ever. For those of you who don't know (I didn't until I stumbled onto one), it's basically writing a big story in a small amount of time, similar in concept to NaNoWriMo. For this particular Bang, it's to be centered around the het pairing of your choice in any fandom, must be 25k+ in length, and must be done by September. I think the actual deadline is like the 15th or the 20th, but I've been telling myself it's the 1st just to motivate myself some more.

Anyways, so after several weeks of completely struggling to come up with anything and appealing to various other ficcers to help me as sounding boards for ideas, I've finally made a smidgen of progress, and I thought I would share just a tiny little bit - a bit which I will probs end up posting for the next Snippet Sunday at the het_bigbanghelp comm. Vague story summary and snippet under the cut!
because i don't have enough things to do in my life i thought writing 25k before september was a grand idea ... OY )
Feeling like you want to write but have no idea what to write about? Need a bit of a kick-start? Then this post is for you, my friend. A whole royal dump of wee prompts, laid out in tables to save space, below the cut.
boy, am i good at procrastinating )
Two challenges I might eventually try myself, below the cut. Take a gander!
underused and obscure! )
