I don't have it in me at present to post properly about either of these things, but I made a DS9 vid for Equinox Vids, and Doctor Who was once again lovely this week.

Thank you all very much for your comments on my last post. <3

Today's writing:

I noodled around a bit with a dozen different WIPs, adding a sentence here and a sentence there, not getting anywhere. And then I started on the pastiche idea I mentioned the other day. I'm not seriously working on this right now - it needs a lot of research before I can do that - but I decided to just start writing because I could at least get down the very rough version of events that existed in my head. I'm not sure much - or anything - of this will make it into a final version, but at least I won't now forget what I was thinking. *g*

And it came to 2,100 words - the first decent writing day I've had all month. \o/

It was good to find out I was still capable of producing words! So of course I decided to test that on another story. (One of the many Sherlock WIPs - not a short one, but one of the easier ones.) And I got another 800 words. So it appears I can still write properly after all! Now I just need to apply that to something I can actually finish some time soon ... *g*

It's almost the end of National Poetry Month. I'd meant to post this on Yom HaShoah.

[community profile] smutswap stories are revealed, so here's mine, written for SilverShepard! Many thanks to Frostfire, Ylixia, and Feanorinleatherpants for their help and encouragement. :D

Come on and Get Your Kicks (8121 words) by Dira Sudis
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Marvel Cinematic Universe
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark
Characters: Tony Stark, Steve Rogers
Additional Tags: Feminization, Crossdressing, Dirty Talk, Shame in Sexual Desires, The Manifest Difficulty of Staying Ashamed of Anything When Tony Is This Excited About It, Fluff and Smut
Summary:

"At the end of the day, you just want to be my pretty little girl, is that it?"

Steve surged up to wrap his arms around Tony, kissing him with the kind of filthy fervor that Steve usually reserved for you could have died or I haven't had an orgasm in 36 hours.

So, all right then. Hypothesis confirmed.

I signed up for Not Prime Time. \o/ I'm requesting Ao no Exorcist, Hikaru no Go, Daiya no A, Batman vs Superman, The Chronicles of Riddick series, and Agents of SHIELD. I'm still writing up my letter and optional details. Alas, so far no one has offered for my three anime/manga fandoms.

2 more days until sign ups close on the 30th!

[community profile] three_weeks_for_dw is starting up again, so I'm tagging this post with the 'three weeks for dreamwidth' tag.

I have some fics to write, so here's hoping I don't get distracted. (Spoiler alert: I probably will XD )

I let Harry out early this morning. While he was away (or possibly in the little garden shack out back), Midnight Fluff paid me a visit.

He sat very still about ten feet away from me. I sat very still just inside my house, cross legged in front of the open sliding patio door. It was so pleasant and quiet that I meditated for a little while, eventually closing my eyes and concentrating on my breathing while I listened to morning bird song. When I opened my eyes ten minutes or so later, MF was still sitting quietly.

I did some qigong and some yoga while MF watched me. Eventually I got up and put some kitty kibble into the little dish that found its way outside yesterday evening. MF came right up to the dish after I closed the sliding glass door. I sat on the floor again and slowly I inched the door open until I could get my hand outside. I managed to touch the tip of one ear before he got alarmed and retreated to the recycle bin. After lightly spraying the bin, he sat down next to it nonchalantly and smized at me. Then he cleaned his butt.

I eventually went off to do some dishes and he left. I knew he left from the yowling that started up at the back of the yard. Harry was home!

Or maybe he had never left. He emerged from the little garden shed with a bunch of stuff in his fluff--dirt, twigs, leaves. The last I saw of MF, he was jumping over the back fence.

And now Harry is snoozing on my lap after eating some treats.

Happy Caturday!

Humble Bundle is running a Bloom County bundle! Pay what you want, as little as US$1, for vols. 1-4 of the complete Bloom County digital library; paying more will get you more, but you can get all thirteen books (vols. 1-9 of BC, plus four more books of related Berkeley Breathed comics) for as little as US$15.

I really didn't have to think long about what icon to use for this post...

Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark, Steve Rogers/Tony Stark/Tony Stark

Summary: When Steve shows up at Tony's penthouse for one of their usual no-strings-attached dalliances, he's sure as hell not expecting to find a second Tony waiting for him. And they're both interested in keeping him company.

It took me two hours to title this. I'm going to sleep now. Have some smut. This is for Cap-IM Bingo; the square is "kink: double penetration."

You know what I hate? Story titles. Also summaries, but right now I hate titles. How do people even come up with titles?

I guess it's time to go through iTunes on random.

Bones: "I hope you know what you're doing."
Jim: "I think it's abundantly clear that I don't. Why are you even friends? How do you have things to say to each other?"
Bones: "He is just delightful company."
Jim: "Now you're making things up."

Notes: This vid is sort of a dark mirror to Fly Me to the Moon by [personal profile] thirdblindmouse (with her full approval). I knew that this vid was the right call when I told [personal profile] settiai the concept and she responded with the textual version of facepalming. I made the whole thing in about nine days, I want to say. Also, I am very grateful that the trailers for Alien: Covenant have contained so much stuff, because I'm not sure the vid would be nearly as good without those contributions.

Notes: The last time I made a Doctor Who vid, Catherine Tate had just ended her run as Donna Noble. It's been that long. However, in a lot of ways, it's a bit like visiting an old friend (with a new face, obviously). Purplefringe wanted a River Song vid that encompassed all of the Doctors she tangoed with and I did my best to accommodate. Oddly enough, the song didn't come from the Guardians of the Galaxy trailers, but a Youtube trawl I was making for unrelated reasons.

1. It is warm today. I am wearing a sleeveless shirt and right now I am barefoot. This makes me happy.

2. Relatedly, I did my biannual closet swap -- moved the winter stuff into storage more or less, or at least out of the way, and moved the warm-weather stuff back into rotation. Now that I have done this we will probably get two weeks of cold-and-rainy, or something, but it still feels good to have shifted the closet over.

3. The flowers we planted in a box on our wee mirpesset last weekend are blooming and they are lovely.

4. I ran into someone at the co-op today who saw me doing my job recently and wanted to tell me that she's rooting for me to get the permanent position. \o/

5. Someone nearby has hung a beautiful wind chime, and I like the way it peals.

Shabbat shalom to all who celebrate.

Ugh, after a change in meds my blood pressure is going crazy. And I'm still in that phase where you can't tell if it's just a period of adjustment or if it isn't working, so I'll have to wait a few more days. Not fun.

Today's writing:
  1. Decided on a title for a fic that is a sequel to a sequel of a fic I haven't written. (I was reading something else that gave me an idea which was just too good to pass up. I have to write these things down as they come, or I'll never remember!)

  2. Added some notes and dialogue to one of my many WIPs.

  3. Made an attempt at proper writing, since I wasn't quite as tired tonight. Couldn't really get into anything, but I reread some things, and I did add a sentence here and there.

Tally:
