Stolen from many! :

I currently have 672 works archived at Ao3. Pick a number from 1 (the most recent) to 672 (the first thing I posted there), and I'll tell you three things I currently like about it.

I don't know what scares me more, the number or that it is but a drop in the ocean of the number of fics that I have written that have disappeared off my old site and may never be updated on AO3!

helsinkibaby: (Default) try to shake something loose in this brain of mine to distract me from work being a PITA!

Stolen from [personal profile] leobrat

Ask me about a pairing and/or character I have written (or haven't and you think I should write) and I will give you five facts about them. OR a ficlet or a song that is CLEARLY THEIR SONG or what they order from the Chinese place down the street or what they do on a lazy Saturday night, etc etc.

In other news, CMA Awards tonight... Looking forward to seeing who wins what and who sings what, when I, of course, find it online through very legal means!

And! I have watched the first two episodes of The Flash. I love it. Joe is my favourite, was there ever a doubt. This is the first show in eons I'm looking at more or less currently as it airs and it's new and shiny and I am excited!

So in response to the ask me about my ships meme, shallowness asked-

Is there a type of ship that you've got more into over the past few years, or do your tastes remain more or less the same?

I had to think about this because over the last few years my tv watching has declined, my computer time has declined so I was trying to think of what I have actually shipped over the last few years! And in general, I have to say that I do have a type, and that my type has pretty well not changed over the last few's been pretty constant.

I tend to ship the two people who generally fandom would not put together. They are usually more minor characters, or at the very least one character more marginal than the other. The ships that don't get a lot of love, they are usually mine.

Over the last few years, there's been Nate/Kensi from NCIS Los Angeles, Mike/Debra from The Following, Frank/Jenny from Sleepy Hollow is my new crack but while there seems to be shippers (including Orlando Jones himself if his twitter is anything to go by!) there isn't much in the way of fic.

Hawaii Five-0, there is Danny/Kono, 'nuff said, but also Steve/Catherine which actually goes to show that sometimes you are better off shipping the uncanon stuff , because let a show runner at your babies and they will totally eff it up. Example the second, Warehouse 13 where Pete and Myka did get together but in the literal dying minutes of the show in a hamfisted storyline that was horrifically shortened when SyFy, damn their eyes, made the final season not 20 episodes like the previous one, not 13 like the others, but 6 episodes long. I think the writers had ten episodes broken when that word came down so the rewrites came thick and fast and while I liked some aspects of it, yeah, just too rushed especially from Myka's point of view. (anyone who tells me Pete has not been in love with Myka for years, I can refute that, I can do it with evidence to back me up and I will never agree with you.)

For The Mentalist, I have written Cho/Van Pelt but in my head I have a whole AU twisty turning plotty thing that is Cho/Lisbon and I want someone who is not me to write it so it will be amazing.

Matt/Alesha from Law and Order UK is possibly the exception as a ship that does get a lot of love but it's in a small fandom, so it's still a small amount of love compared to some of the bigger ships.

Shallowness, did I even come close to answering your question?!

In an effort to stop Frank Irving and Jenny Mills from completely eating my brain, stolen from [personal profile] leobrat , a ship meme!

Please ask me questions about my OTPs in the comments! Any questions! All questions! Deep questions! Silly questions! Ship questions. (It doesn't even really have to be OTPs. Basically, anything you know I have ever shipped. And maybe even anything I haven't. Oooh, that could actually make this MORE interesting, if you wanted to asked about things I don't/might/once shipped.)

That meme that I was trying to do last week...

Comment here if you want to play, and I will give you three-six couples that I associate with you, and you make an entry in your journal talking about those couples and fics that you wish the universe would write for you.

Danny/Kono, Hawaii Five-0(
The ship of my heart on that show and I've just seen ep 1.03 on repeat on Sky this morning and this has inspired me to write about them! (And wow, the show was so much better written then. But anyway). I love those two together; certainly in season one Danny needs to chill out and relax on Hawaii and Kono is just the person to help him do it. Plus she won't take any of his crap! I want fic about the two of them after 1.03 where they're kissing undercover and he apologises if he went too far with the pawing of her and all (I have written this but I want someone else's take on it!) and she's like don't be such an idiot, it's fine and when he keeps apologising she grabs him and kisses him just to shut him up. I want fic set in the pilot where he held her hand a minute too long when he shook it and then Chin's all like, don't be getting any ideas with my cousin. Or fic about where he gave her his Saint's medal when she graduated and how much it means to her, or where her mentor was killed and he was there for her.... seriously, early season one was all over the Danny/Kono moments and I miss that! Also, anything to do with the Danny-can't-sext thing is always good!

Veronica Weevil, Veronica Mars
Oh how can people look at season one and not ship them? It makes no sense to me! I want fic about the two of them that tells us about what happened to them in the year between Lilly's murder and the pilot ep. Because Weevil trusts her, or at least knows her from the get go and there's no way he would trust an 09er princess, not even if she was Lilly's best friend. I want to know did they know one another before that, what circles they move in that would have intersected. I definitely want fic post movie where they're both trying to clean up Neptune and his wife has left him and taken the child and she's finding out that the new Logan is not the Logan that she knew and they don't work any more. (Not that, IMO, they ever did that well, but YMMV.) I want to see them falling for one another and resisting the hell out of it because she's gunshy and he still loves his wife.
The real wish I have? Universe altered/fix it fic where she knew about what he was doing and the news that he was married with a child was not news to her. (Yes, I know why they did it, but infodump is not a good reason to eff up such a good relationship!).

For Vegawriters...
Sara/Warrick, CSI
The whole enemies turning into friends/lovers trope is made for them. I fell for that the minute I saw them and the I-15 Murders just solidified it in my mind. I love that for two people who had all the reason in the world to distrust one another, they ended up being really good friends, to the point that you could see her pain when he died and he actually said to Grissom that since Sara left Vegas he felt lost and disconnected. He didn't take any crap from her, nor she from him and they always had one another's backs.
I want fic for these two first of all where he doesn't die! That's my number one preference!
I want to see them supporting one another, being there for one another, whether that's to do with Tina or Grissom or the child, I don't mind. I'd love to see something where Warrick is a single dad, trying to raise Eli and Sara doesn't want kids, has never wanted kids, but Eli starts to worm his way into her heart and she takes on the mothering role without even realising it. (And if Eli's older and starts to do a Parent Trap thing, I would love that!) Or something from the first few seasons, before she got together with Grissom but she and Warrick had some sort of fling... maybe post season four where she's dealing with the drinking and he knows what it's like to have an addiction... or he's angry at her for driving under the influence because a drunk driver killed his mother and he doesn't want to believe she'd be that person.

A West Wing pairing of my choosing
I cannot choose just one, there are too many! If I had to pick, I would probably pick Will/Kate, which I know I'm in the minority about but I liked as a pairing back in season seven. (WW fandom back in the day was so much fun, great writers, a multishipper's heaven, where you could find practically anything you wanted for any pairing, and if you couldn't, you floated an idea on a mailing list and someone would do the necessary!) I liked their awkwardness and the idea that they were trying to make this thing work, trying to fly under the radar and just were so bad at it! I'd like fic for them where Kate does go to Oregon with Will, or at least follows him there. I have an idea in my head that she takes a job at some defence company and she hates it and after one bad day she can't take it any more and surprises him at his campaign headquarters/home and basically never leaves. He does his campaigning and she writes her book and she dedicates it to him (because he taught her love is not a four letter word) and they live happily and awkwardly ever after. Or I want to see them talking at the library dedication where he wonders what happened to them and why they could never make it work and she doesn't know either and they decide to go out to dinner and make it work all over again... there is so much potential for these two!

So, leobrat had a meme and 'twas this...

Comment here if you want to play, and I will give you three-six couples that I associate with you, and you make an entry in your journal talking about those couples and fics that you wish the universe would write for you.

So I did and she gave me --

Veronica/Weevil (Veronica Mars)
Danny/Kono (Hawaii Five-0)
Doug/ Kate (The Cutting Edge)

And since the first one I did went long, I'm doing this in parts! So without further ado,

Doug and Kate, (The Cutting Edge)

I have loved this film since the first time I saw it and this meme means I have to do a rewatch of it!  Due to my love of skating, or perhaps in spite of it, I can overlook the plot holes about skating that come up (even though Natalia Mishkutenok and Craig Shephard proved it was possible for a hockey player to be a decent pairs skater, there's no way Doug could have got to Olympic gold standard in so short a space of time and don't start me on the physics of the Pamchenko) and I root for Kate and Doug like they're a real skating couple. The way that they balance one another out just makes me smile, and you just know that he'd do anything in the world for her and she feels the same way about him, even if getting her to admit is is another story! I love that neither of them is perfect and that there are times in the film where they both make mistakes, and that they learn from them to make it all work out in the end. (I'm a sucker for a good cheesy love story, and Moira Kelly's face before they start skating -"it's out!" "It's in!" "What's the difference?" "The difference is, I'm in the mood to kick a little ass." - just makes me grin even thinking of/ typing the dialogue!

Fic I wish the universe would write - I guess I'm lucky because there's so little fic out there and what people write is excellent. Perri wrote a fic where they win the Olympics and break into the Olympic stadium in the wee small hours to skate for fun because Kate's never done it before. Someone else, probably for Yuletide, did one where they got the silver and Doug went apeshit in the kiss and cry, and there's fics where she meets his family too, all of which I love. 

But I would love to see a fic where they lose the gold medal, and badly (because if they deducted for Surya's backflip in '98, they'd have murdered for the Pamchenko) and instead of Doug going ballistic, he's the one in the interviews going, "we can't control what the judges do but we're going to worlds and we're going to kick ass," while Kate is so devastated she can hardly talk. She wants to quit but Doug talks her into fighting back and they go to worlds (which in 92 were in Oakland, California, USA, as close to a home worlds as they're going to get) and they do go there and they kick ass and win the gold/some sort of medal. And then there's only two years to the next Olympics so on to Lillehamar in 94!

I may have thought about that a little too much...

shallowness asked for Veronica Mars --

* How I feel about this character
I unashamedly love Veronica. I think she's gutsy, resilient, clever, loyal... I basically want to be her when I grow up! She's also not without her faults - she's a tad myopic when it comes to getting what she wants, by which I mean she can ignore how what she wants her friends to do to her can affect her friends (Wallace tried to tell her that getting a file could get in him in trouble in the movie, she basically blew him off) but we all have our flaws and I like that she does too.

* All the people I ship romantically with this character
While the movie may have made me like Logan, that version of Logan at any rate, my list starts and ends with one name... Weevil, Weevil, Weevil.

* My non-romantic OTP for this character

* My unpopular opinion about this character
Again...while the movie may have made me like them a little, she and Logan are never going to work out long term. Not even now, when he seems to be a JAG lawyer (is that what we're getting from the movie?) and she's back rolling in the dirt in Neptune... it looks to me like now he's the one that's escaped while she's getting back into it again.

* One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon
Honestly, I wish something had happened with her and Weevil. Or at the very least that when she met him at the reunion, she didn't express total surprise at the idea of him being married with a three year old. Because that tells me that she hasn't been in touch with him at all for at least four years, if not five and that makes me sad.

* Something about them I consider true, though it's just head canon/fanon
Not so much about her as how other people feel about her... I truly believe that Weevil was in love with Veronica in high school (and Francis Capra has said as much too, so I have grounds!) I also believe that Wallace may have had a crush on her back in the day, but he got over it quickly.

Stolen from [personal profile] leobrat ... a little something to keep me posting as I seem to have fallen off the wagon on that a little bit!

Give me a character I will tell you:

* How I feel about this character
* All the people I ship romantically with this character
* My non-romantic OTP for this character
* My unpopular opinion about this character
* One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon
* Something about them I consider true, though it's just head canon/fanon

In other words, have cracked 7000 on my Case Fic Big Bang story - I need to get to 10K and there's a few vital scenes that still have to be written so I'm cautiously optimistic about it. Which is normally the rock on which I perish but drafts (I'm not sure if that's full draft or 80% thereof) have to be in on May 1st so I'm trying to chip away at that as much as I can.

I also signed up for the April challenge on 1_million_words and got three songs to write fic on. I've got two of them done and ideas for the third but am still running it through my head to see which angle I want to take on it... there are a few notions there and I'm trying to work out if they're all the one story or a few different ones. We shall see. (They're all The Following, the first two are definitely Mike/Debra and the third will either be that or Deb gen/backstory, depending on how things go.)

Seen on tumblr, snagged off my friends list and ignoring the rather loose definition of OTP...

Give me a fandom and I will (attempt to) tell you...

* My otp(s):
* My anti-otp:
* My unusual otp(s):
* My crossover otp(s):
* My friendship otp(s):
