My Fic

If you want to read my fiction, definitely check out My AO3 .  Everything I write gets posted there, including commentfic, RPF, fics involving underage characters having sex, and original fiction. Those don't get posted here for various reasons, and some of them are locked to AO3 members only.

All my fic posts here are public, so anybody can read them, whether or not you've friended my fic journal.

My fanfic in this journal is entirely Battlestar Galactica 2003 -  mostly Kara paired with somebody.  I write a lot of smut, some genfic when the prompt strikes me just right. Any fic I write for other fandoms will only be posted to AO3.

I love fic recs, especially for good Kara/Helo stuff, so please tell me about something good you've read. When I find something Kara/Helo, I add it to the Thrace_Agathon collection at AO3.

And [ profile] newnumbertwo is my trusty beta, even when I forget to acknowledge her in the posts, which I am ashamed to say happens often. We've added [ profile] laura_mayfair to our writing village, and she's a welcome addition. Sometimes, [ profile] singerdiva01_sk helps, and we like having her around, too.

By no means a comprehensive list of my fics, the following is a listing of ongoing or complete series or chapterfics. Some people would call the latter WIPs, but since each chapter stands alone in the same 'verse, I don't consider these works-in-progress


Because I've seen this happening all over fandom, I'm putting this out there for the record.

I have no intention of taking my stuff down, either here (it's part of the reason I made a separate fic journal) or on AO3. If something were to happen to me, I can't imagine my daughter or my beta village would do so, either. But...if you save something offline for your own reading use, and for some reason my stuff is no longer available, please feel free to share my works with whomever asks.

Today's topic in a writing comm was:
Over the years we have all produced fic. Some of it has been rewarded with kudos and comments. There's not always a clear reason why some fics 'make it' into the readers acclaim or why. When public acclaim is taken into account: what are your best fics? Don't hesitate to post links.

I answered based only on top fics according to AO3 stats. I don't really pay much attention to I post things there, then forget about them.

77 more hits and [ profile] afrakaday's birthday fic from 2013 will reach 60K.

LOTS of hits, very few kudos.

Methinks people are clicking through from somewhere expecting something other than fic. lol

Anybody who's friended my fic journal, sorry for the fic-spam today. I was going to cross-post and realized I hadn't updated my fic journal since Labor Day weekend.


I love how easy it is to post on AO3, but I hate cross-posting from AO3.

Rating is for themes, violence, and sexual content. Nothing's graphic, but...I'd rather err on the side of caution when it comes to this.

Summary: Kara and Saul come back from New Caprica damaged. Okay, more damaged.

Many fervent thanks to newnumbertwo and laura_mayfair for their beta and friendship.

Criminal Minds, you kill me every year.  And it wasn't the finale, but I love the little glimpses we get of JJ's Will, and the way she decided to work off that bad juju was great.

I have seventeen (!!!!!) pieces, BSG and original, in various stages of done, and having my beta-reader otherwise occupied for the past month is driving me crazy.  I'm hopeful that with school letting out, her life will slow down soon.  Cross my fingers.  I might have to go over there and make her read while we're watching TV.  I can just see that.  "Here.  Read my porn, please.  No, I don't want cookies (I'd be lying), I want to finish my stupid stories so I can post the porn."  lmao

Arrow is not a perfect show, but it's got really great moments, and there were a lot of them during the last four or five episodes of the season.  During the scene where Oliver was trying to tell Tommy he'd be fine, there was so much homoerotic subtext that it wasn't even subtext.  Damn.  I swear I thought Oliver was going to kiss Tommy and I think it might've been hotter than Oliver kissing Lauren.  lol  And what's with Diggle?  All of a sudden he's running around in tank tops and he's even buffer than Oliver?  The shoulders on that man.  See, the show gives me plenty of eye-candy, and for that alone, I will continue to watch it.  John Barrowman.  :flails:  And that little moment with Thea and Roy?  Awwww.  I kind of like the idea of Oliver and Lauren, but frankly, there's more chemistry between Oliver and Felicity, and that's not even considering her continual verbal sexual innuendos.  How is Oliver ignoring those with a straight face?  Hell, how is the actress saying those lines with a straight face?  Every time she lets one fly, I think of the story Like Something Out of a Fanfic and it makes me laugh.

Once Upon a Time is getting too convoluted for me.  These two are conspiring with each other, and she's conspiring with him and he's conspiring with another her and she's become a barfly and where the hell is Red?  And Charming is boring again without his gun.  I still have the last three episodes to watch, and I will.  Ethan Embry is wasted here.  And seriously, this show does not have enough sex - everybody wears too many clothes.

Still have Revenge and Castle to finish up for the season.

I'm liking Grimm a lot better then OUaT right now.  I could listen to Sasha Roiz read the script in a monotone, if he would do it in French.  He has very pretty eyes.  I'm wondering where the Juliet thing is going.  Something's off with that.

I think I'm going to skip the rest of Monday Mornings, except for the shower scene, of course, when I visit my TV friend.  I'm also not going to bother to watch Revolution or Touch.  I'd really like to watch a few episodes of Bates Motel - I love the two leads - and see if it appeals to me.  And A&E is having a marathon of Katee's Longmire today, with the new season starting tomorrow, I think.  I have to catch up on Person of Interest, too, since I can only watch that one on the DVR.

I ran into a professional cook at Kroger today.  I was trying to find something for which I had a "free" coupon, and he asked what it was I wanted to make.  He was describing making something, and he's all "bip bip bip and it's done" and it was adorable.  I explained that I suck at cooking, unless it comes in a box or has very strict instructions, whereas my brother can pick six random things off the shelf and make something fantastic.  He said he could do that, too.  I envy that, but more I envy that he likes to cook.  I just hate it.  Cooking is all hot and sweaty and there's no good payoff.  I mean, yeah, there's food at the end of it, but if I want to eat, I have to cook every day, and that is just a big fat pain in the ass with nothing to show for it but ten minutes of eating and then dishes.  I just need to win the lottery.  Plus, I got back from Kroger and realized that I didn't pick up one of the three things I even went for.  :sigh:

Having a latex allergy and then finding out that something I used has latex in it?  So not fun.  At least my morphine allergy makes pretty purple poofies on my skin.  The latex makes my skin look like I have leprosy.  Ick.  And ow.

My new Kindle will not let me download the app that lets me read my Nook books on my Kindle.  Frakker.  The Nook is just not as user-friendly, and makes reading slow and cumbersome.

I finished the first round of editing on the first book, and the author did not take out a contract on me when she saw all the red - MS Word's Track Changes is the bomb diggety.  She just said, "Wow.  I missed a lot."  I'm liking that response, because it means I will likely get to keep the contract for the rest of her books, which means money in my pocket at the end of each book.  I like money.  lol

Through the judicious use of sleep, birthday coupons, landlord's housewarming party, and gifts from friends, I managed to go the entire month of February without cooking.  I did heat up frozen pizza in the oven twice, but I'm not counting that as cooking.

Some guy on OKCupid wanted to chat, so I let him have my gmail IM, and two days later, he's telling me how he's starting to have "extra feelings" for me.  For. Crying. Out. Loud.  I'm on that stupid thing so I can find friends, and I'm very clear about that in my profile.   Also, TWO DAYS?????

Landlord's birthday was today, and a friend wanted to take him to dinner at a Brazilian place.  Yay for me, because hey, free meal, since I have to drive him all over creation, unless they want to come get him, which they definitely do not.  They have too many cats.  So many cats that I had to go back outside five minutes after I walked in the door.  It was horrible.  The residual smell almost kept me from eating.

I am amusing myself with new fic by working my way forward through beyond_insane.  Lots and LOTS of locked stuff, or purged journals.  I wish that when journals were purged, so were entries leading to them.  Sometimes the fic sounds really intriguing, and then DENIED.  Frakkers.

Speaking of fic, the muse has been silent.  Ominously so.  Oh, well, I'm still getting ideas, so she's just on a little extended vacation or something.  I mean, it took her 47 years to show up the first time, so I guess a little patience is called for.

I managed to move my storage unit from Euless to East Dallas - from a large one to one one-fourth its size.  That took some serious Tetris-like thinking to get things packed in there properly.  See?  Video games ARE good for something.

Finally, my grandson is still handsome and smart.  I like to end on a positive note.  :D

I had this weird dream just before I woke up this morning.  I'm a military brat, so I've been around planes my entire life.  Well, in this dream, I was outside, in front of my house, watching a plane fly across the sky.  Suddenly the plane stopped and hovered.  Not many planes do this, and certainly none non-military, so of course, I knew it was a military plane.  It was also carrying something on its back, a la space shuttle type thing.  Anyway, this hovering plane slowly turns exactly nose down, pauses for a very brief moment, then plunges to the earth.  Somehow, I was seeing this all simultaneously from directly below the nose, and also from a slight angle.  Don't ask me - it was a dream.  Anyway, as I see it begin to slow down before it turned nose down, I said, "Oh, shit."  Then as I watched it hit the ground, in my neighbor's front yard, I was just frozen.  Just watching it happen, like I had no sense at all.  Fortunately, though I watched the explosion in the neighbor's yard as if it were in slo-mo, I woke up before my dream self was dissolved by the shockwave of the impact.  lol  Sometimes, I don't know where my mind comes up with this crap.  I don't even want to know, for that matter.

I got my first 'bb' in response to a comment on a fic.  I'm in the bb club!  Woohoo!  heeheehee  Yes, I'm being silly.

I finally got completely caught up on DPPs on no_takebacks.  Now I have to decide which BSG comm to stalk next.  I need more plot bunnies!!

The cough I got when I got sick at the first of the year has hung around.  Makes me short of breath several times a day, and I'm kinda weaker than usual, but otherwise, I'm getting back to normal.

I have two friend-dates to go see Die Hard 5 opening weekend, and I have another friend-date next Monday to have dinner to celebrate our upcoming birthdays early.  I have a $10 gift card for Cheesecake Factory that expires at the end of the month, so we're going to take advantage of it.  Love Cheesecake Factory, despite the fact that I do not love cheesecake.  Not even a little bit.  Not even at all.

I noticed in November that all I was doing on Facebook was liking a bunch of stuff and reading other people's posts, so I decided that I would check out for a while.  This was also at least partly in response to changes in FB and their incessant need to change their privacy policies for the worse.  Since then, I've been reading a very small list of people whose lives I actually care about, and not liking anything at all, and only posting a comment when I had some actual information to share.  Nobody's noticed I'm gone, and I haven't missed FB, so I've decided I'm going to trim down the pages I've liked (I've already trimmed down friends several times) and make what's on my FB pretty basic.  I haven't posted anything on my own page since mid-November, and I pretty much plan to keep that up.  I guess if somebody wants to know what I'm up to, they can get hold of me some other way.  In the meantime, I have more time to obsess about BSG and read BSG porn.  Thank the gods for smut!

Last but not least, my Firefox has gotten some kind of freaky thing.  When I click on something, a pop-under will randomly open up and redirect me to another page.  You might think this would be some kind of actual porn, all things considered, but the redirects are to Amazon, or search pages, or, about 10% of the time, to porn pages.  Weird, and unwelcome, and I have not been able to figure out how to get rid of it.  It doesn't seem to do anything, other than open a random page in a pop-under.  It never redirects the page I'm actually on.  At the same time this happened, I get ads randomly on livejournal, over the top of people's pictures, that I have to click closed if I want to see said pictures.  Have people begun to monetize their ljs?  Has livejournal started doing this to a random selection of people?  The two things may or may not even be related.  Maybe I should uninstall Firefox and redownload it.

Pay It Forward meme I'm seeing on Facebook:   2013 Creative Pay-It-Forward. The first five people to comment on this status will receive from me, sometime in the next calendar year, a gift - perhaps a book or baked goods, or a candle, music - a surprise! There will likely be no warning & it will happen whenever the mood strikes me. The catch? Those five people must make the same offer in their FB status. It's a GREAT way to start 2013
I'm changing it up a little, because catches are not really very PIFy, and because, you know, I'm just weird.

So, I'll take five people, and I'll commit to doing it before Winter Solstice of 2013, and I'll commit to writing something.  The no warning and whenever the mood strikes me apply.  Fine print: this writing thing is VERY new to me, and my muse so far is either Pilots! or original characters, and my pieces have been pretty short.  Prompts would be appreciated, or a show (as long as it's something I've watched enough to be familiar), as that sometimes pokes the muse into talking to me, or more accurately, to my fingers.  If you wanna just take whatever comes to me that says it's yours, I can do that, too.

This sounds like a way to stretch this heretofore nonexistent muscle o' mine, and to push out of my comfort zone, just the weest bit.

And Happy Birthday, [ profile] gryphonrhi!!

Or something.  lol

Got a wild hair last night and decided to hook up the landlord's A/V setup in the living room.  He'd been making noises about paying someone to come in and do it, because it was pretty complicated, and I just figured that I've hooked up some fairly complicated setups working for a previous employer, so I might as well see if I could do this one.  Turned out it wasn't so complicated.  I mean, everything was labelled and it was just a matter of connecting wires to the right IN or OUT from the right OUT or IN.  Besides, he only has a receiver, a combo DVD/VHS unit and a laserdisc player.  Two things to connect to a receiver then connect that to the TV.  Easy.  Speakers were already done, so Ta Da!  He still wants to get the whole thing connected to a computer, but he's lacking some pieces for that, so it's not on me that it's not done.  Having this all connected does give me the option of watching more things on a TV screen that's bigger than my laptop screen, and in surround sound.  Could make rewatching BSG better.   Or not.  When I watch on my laptop, I wear headphones, so I don't really miss any dialogue.  I might miss dialogue if I watch without my headphones.

Wrote some more stuff.  Posted it over at lucywritesfic. 

I'm not making resolutions; I never do.  However, I do have mental sticky notes to myself all over the place, and one is to keep exploring this writing thing.  My pieces so far are short, mostly smut, and I'm unreliably stricken by the muse.  But it kinda feels good to finish something and be satisfied with it, even if no one ever reads it.  Not that I don't grin when I notice something has gotten hits over at AO3.  Heehee.

The person I've been bouncing stories off of has been in the midst of a brand-new love affair and her happiness over that has pretty much taken over her life.  I'm thrilled for her, and I'm also waiting for some of the shine to wear off so that there's room in her life for other things again.  Friendship can be so complicated.  :sigh:

Another mental sticky note is to write in my blog more often.  I use to have so many things to say and wanted to share them.  Maybe it's just December that sucked the energy out of everything fun.  For me, anyway.

Last year, in January, I won a Kindle Fire.  It took me a day or two to fall completely in love with the thing.  I never imagined I would find digital words as compelling as actual books in my hands, but truth is, in my efforts to downsize my possessions as much as possible, ebooks fit my new lifestyle so much better.  I still have thousands of print books, and I'm still reluctant to give up my old favorites, or the ones I haven't read yet.  No idea how long it would take me to get through my TBR pile.  There are dozens of books there.  Anyway, in the process of learning to love ebooks, I made much use of the local libraries' catalogs of works, and found a few that I could not access on my Kindle.  So I bought a Nook I found at a fantastic price.  It's the first-generation Nook with WiFi and 3G internet.  It does some things that my Kindle doesn't do, and BN lets people lend books to each other, which is pretty dang nifty.  Still, I don't love it like I love my Kindle.  Maybe I never will, but I wonder if some of it is that I just don't know all the things my Nook can do.  Does anyone have a Nook that they adore?  Can you teach me to love my Nook better?

Another of the weird things that happened in 2012 (how strange to type that instead of 'this year') was people finding my reviews on Amazon and emailing me asking me to review their stuff.  I thought I would love it.  I love reading more than almost anything.  Maybe not more than my grandson.  I also love sharing what I think about a book, or at least writing it on my blog where someone might or might not someday read it (lol).  When I first started getting these requests, I was really flattered and tried superhard to turn the review around within a week, and I did pretty well with that for a while.  I realized, though, that the request obligated me to read the book, even if it sucked, and I'm not really comfortable telling an author directly, "I can't finish reading your book and then reviewing it because it's just not readable."  Whether it's grammar or plot or characterization or spelling or whatever else, I don't mind detailing what I didn't enjoy about a book, and also sharing what I did enjoy, if anything, but I don't like telling the creator directly that I can't even finish it.  No matter what reason I give, the subtext for them is that the book sucks, in my opinion, particularly if I can't even finish reading it.  I also got bogged down because I read four or five books in a row that were just short of awful, but since I had committed myself, I had to slog through.  Avoiding going back to a terrible story made me read less, making it take much longer to finish each one.  The last review I did, a week or so ago, is from a request I got in October.  That's just too frakking long.  And I look at my list (yes, I had to make a list) and see a dozen books on there, and just don't even want to read anything on there, even though some of it's got to be good.

I made myself go to a Meetup last Friday.  I joined a social Meetup a couple of months ago, just ladies looking to make new friends.  I need to socialize more, keep myself from isolating so much.  I didn't know what to expect from a group of strange women, but I had a lot of fun.  Their Bunco rules are different from the rules by which my church ladies play, but not so different that I couldn't adapt fairly quickly.  Several of them were just as irreverent and raunchy-humored as I am, and I doubt a single one is under 40.  The only negative about it is that this group of ladies always plays in a back room at the local La Madeleine.  I may be the only person in the State of Texas who does not adore La Madeleine, but I just don't like the food.  On the way home, though, I decided that from now on, I can eat before I go and just get iced tea there.  That way, I don't have to eat something I don't enjoy, and LM still gets their toll for me passing through the doors.  On another note, their pumpkin pie was good.  They had a flaky yet moist crust that I've never experienced before.  Even my mother never made a crust like that!  The pie crust tasted good, not floury, and I need to know how they did it.

Enough rambling.  Happy second day of 2013 and Happy Hump Day.  Hooray for short weeks.

Really, LJ?  I type cracky gigglefic into the search box and you come back with no results?  Why do you not understand that I mean Hot Pilots in Love?  Please update your search parameters.

Note to self: add it to memories this time, in case you get another uncontrollable urge to giggle at good badfic.

I find myself wanting to reread a fic, and didn't "memorize" it.  I cannot for the life of me remember who wrote it or the title.  Frak.
lanalucy: (Default)
I am so frakkin' frustrated right now. There was a AU Charlie Eppes story and I commented on it, and someone commented to my comment that, "hey, you did know there was a second part, right?" Only now, I can't find it AT ALL and I wanna read it right now! Right Now!

I just know that everybody reads my LJ, so I just know that one of those everybodies will know just exactly the story of which I speak and be able to point me in the right direction. Right now.

lolololol {but not really}
