Folgerscest: "Where the Heart Is" (Brother/Sister, 6/8)

Oct. 10th, 2014 | 09:36 am

The antepenultimate chapter of "Where the Heart Is"! I was hoping to have the entire thing finished before this year's Yuletide assignments were sent out. I . . . don't think that's going to happen.

Where the Heart Is (15423 words) by Alixtii
Chapters: 6/8
Fandom: Folgers Holiday Commercial (2009), Folgerscest - Fandom, Original Work, Ghost Soup Infidel Blue
Relationships: Brother/Sister, Folgerscest
Summary: After spending five years in West Africa, a young man returns home to the United States for the holidays. But sometimes home isn't a place so much as it is a person.

Luke and Lexie go to the Henderson's New Years Eve Eve party. But so does Gwen, and drama ensues.

Dear Yuletide Author 2014

Oct. 9th, 2014 | 07:00 pm

(N.B.: Portions of this letter have been lifted from previous years' letters: 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007.)

Thank you for signing up to write a story for me! You're one of a very small group of people who offered to write for one or more of my fandoms and I love you for that alone. All three of my requests this year are repeats, so you can be assured that whatever we matched on and/or you decide to write for me, it'll be something I'm looking forward to very, very much.

If you check out my userinfo, you'll find a 'thon policy which implores that you be true first and foremost to the prompt and your muse, and to consider whether I'd like a story as, at most, a secondary concern. I stand by that, but I also recognize there is a sense that a [community profile] yuletide story is explicitly a gift in a way which most 'thon fics aren't, so feel free to surf through this journal to get a feel for me, and here's a little bit more, if you are interested, to help you understand how I relate to the specific texts and characters in the fandoms I've requested and what I might like. OTOH, don't be intimitated; this letter might demonstrate that I've thought long and hard about why I want what I want, because I'm full of myself and like to navel-gaze so you can get a feel for my tastes, but the specifics of what I'd like are intentionally vague even in my own mind.

As a reader (and, for that matter, as a writer), I'm perhaps most interested in female characters--in particular, adolescent female characters with agency--and in the relationships between them. I'm also drawn to what I call will-to-poweriness, the adolescent fantasy, the desire to exceed oneself that also draws me to things like superhero comics (one of my fandoms is, indeed, X-Men) and fantasy shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer (which is my main fandom). Female children and teenagers who prove themselves to be the equals (or betters) to adults because they are just that awesome are some of my favorite people to read about, and I think you can see this in many of my requests. I talk more about my love of radically autonomous young female characters in this post from 2006 and provide more examples of the specific dynamic I like and why I think it rings for me; I go on to talk about incest, but since that's not relevant for any of my requests this year you can feel free to ignore that part.

Beyond that, I like to think I'm easy to write for. I have few squicks--I'm fine with character death, BDSM, mpreg, dubcon, noncon, chan, incest--you name it, I'm probably okay with it. Just please no bashing of my favorite characters. Happy, uplifting fics are good, but so are soul-crushingly depressing ones so long as the pairings and characters get to be awesome. Ambivalent fics where we're not sure whether we should cheer or cry are probably best of all. If I didn't like existentialism and pseudo-nihilism in my fic, I wouldn't be a Joss Whedon fan.

Fic Corner, Yuletide, and Me

Sep. 5th, 2014 | 06:31 pm

I left a comment on the Yuletide fandom promotion post advertising Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm. I'd also like to promote the other two fandoms I plan on nominating, The Illuminatus! Trilogy and That Guy With the Glasses, but I really don't have the least clue how to go about it. They're not easy fandoms to explain, exactly.

(All three fandoms are ones I made requests for last year, so my Dear Yulewriter Letter ought to be pretty easy to write this year. And whatever won't get written will qualify for the Some Day My Fic Will Come Challenge.)

In the meantime, I'm making last-minute edits to my [community profile] fic_corner story. Stories are supposed to go live tomorrow, but there's still one participant who hasn't yet gotten a fic written for them, so if you can write something for Dreamdark series - Laini Taylor, Snow Eyes series - Stephanie A. Smith, Toaru Kagaku no Railgun | A Certain Scientific Railgun, or Ultra Maniac then go here; if you can write for Dark Is Rising Sequence – Susan Cooper then go here.

Looking at the fandoms, it looks like the [community profile] fic_corner story written for me will be either Ender's Game or The A.I. Gang both of which would be awesome.

I had hoped to have completely finished Where the Heart Is by the time Yuletide assignments went out, but that's looking unlikely at this point. Although the antepenultimate chapter is mostly finished at this point, so hopefully I will get a chance to post it at least sometime in the next few weeks. I really do love those wacky incestuous kids. The sequel Where They Have to Take You In and prequel "One's Birthplace, Ratified by Memory" mostly just exist in my brain at this point. As does quite a bit of MCU fic, including a bunch of genderswap fic (Stephanie/Coulson, Toni/Natasha, Clint/girl!Thor) as well as sequels to The Caged Birds (including Coulson/Darcy, Tony/Pepper/Jane, and Bruce/Natasha fics).

*headdesk*

Jul. 3rd, 2014 | 03:53 pm

So I'm working on the antepenultimate chapter of Where the Heart Is and I just found out that Côte d’Ivoire is in the northern hemisphere.

I went back over the previously posted chapters and I don't think I actually wrote anything incorrect. The 2nd sentence of the fic says "the very notion of a White Christmas seems more than a little alien" but that'd still be true no matter what.

But, still. Obviously with a fic like this one worries about being unintentionally appropriative--or at least more so than the source canon itself commits one to--but it never occurred to me that I might put a country in the wrong frakking hemisphere.

Oh, well. Disaster averted.

Dear Fic Corner Scribbler

Jun. 21st, 2014 | 07:09 pm

Hey there!

I love children's lit because it is so what I call will-to-poweriness or the adolescent fantasy, as I discuss at length in this post from 2006. I'm particularly fond of female protagonists, and female children and teenagers who prove themselves to be the equals (or betters) to adults because they are just that awesome are some of my favorite people to read about, and kid's lit delivers with many great examples.

I have few squicks--I'm fine with character death, BDSM, mpreg, dubcon, noncon, chan, incest--you name it, I'm probably okay with it. Just please no bashing of my favorite characters. Happy, uplifting fics are good, but so are soul-crushingly depressing ones so long as the pairings and characters get to be awesome. Ambivalent fics where we're not sure whether we should cheer or cry are probably best of all. If I didn't like existentialism and pseudo-nihilism in my fic, I wouldn't be a Joss Whedon fan.

You really don't have to worry about ruining my childhood or anything like that.

Roundup: 2013 in Fanfic

Jan. 4th, 2014 | 08:50 am

In addition to my two Yuletide fics, Where the Heart Is (Folgerscest) and Eternal Recurrence (Avalon High), I also wrote two other fics in 2013:

Stringing the Labyrinth (A Watcher's Remix), a remix of [archiveofourown.org profile] Valyssia's fic Walk About written for [community profile] buffy_remix 2013;

and The Caged Birds, my sequel to my MCU/XMM crossover Four Times Tony Stark Met Erik Lensherr (And One Time He Didn't).

Yuletide Reveals

Jan. 1st, 2014 | 02:56 pm

So for Yuletide 2013, I wrote two fics. My main assignment was Where the Heart Is (Folgerscest) for [Unknown LJ tag], and I wrote Eternal Recurrence (Avalon High) as a treat for [Unknown LJ tag]

I got the idea for "Where the Heart Is" during last year's Yuletide, and desperately wanted to receive the Folgerscest assignment this year because I knew my idea was too ambitious for me to undertake it without being assigned it. Even as it was, I was forced to scale it back somewhat and only posted three chapters, hoping they could stand alone as a somewhat self-contained unit. My recipient did express interest in reading more when I completed it, though, so even before reveals happened I posted the fourth chapter, which is one of my favorites, and at this point I fully plan on writing the full eight chapters my original idea called for.

As of this writing, I have over 7K words posted to AO3, which if I may say so myself is pretty impressive considering the source canon is about 45 seconds long.

My original idea for "Where the Heart Is" was pretty simple: what if the brother had been away in West Africa for several years instead of months, and what if he asked his sister to go back to Africa with him? Percolating in my mind for a year meant that many little details began to develop and enrich the original premise, and I knew I would have enough material to fill eight chapters, one covering each of the eight days from Christmas Day to New Years Day. This became even more true as I began writing: the cousin Gwen, for example, was a relatively late addition, inspired by the Gwen Stacey debacle.

As I was preparing my sign-ups and reading letters, I was preparing possible fics I could write, any one of which I could write as a main assignment and/or a treat. I wanted to write Folgerscest as my main assignment desperately, but I had several different fic ideas in different fandoms ready to write: a Cinderella genderfuck piece, a Little Mermaid f/f fix-it, a Honor Harrington casefile, a Belle/Aurora college AU, etc. Many of these are started and may be completed at some future point. 

One fic I more or less finished even before assignments went out, however, was "Eternal Recurrence." I enjoyed the Disney Channel movie Avalon High just as much as r [Unknown LJ tag] did, and wanted to see more fanfic for much the same reasons. In particular, though, I shipped Allie/Jen, because I'm a femslasher and Arthur/Gwen is already canon. So one night at work an idea for a fic came to mind, and by the time I got home I had it pretty much all worked out in my head, from the use of the toy lightsaber to slice a watermelon to the game of truth and dare around the campfire. I immediately typed it all up (sans the flashback, which I filled in right before the deadline) when I got home, and then put it on the back-burner as I continued to work on "Where the Heart Is" and my other treat ideas. 

I'd be interested in writing a continuation of "Eternal Recurrence," too, where Allie and Jen really need to come to terms with being married in a past life and in which Nina Mallory (briefly mentioned in my fic) is revealed to indeed be Nimue, but I'm definitely going to focus on finishing the expanded version of "Where the Heart Is" first.

Dear Yuletide Writer 2013

Oct. 11th, 2013 | 07:23 pm

(N.B.: Portions of this letter have been lifted from previous years' letters: 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007.)

Thank you for signing up to write a story for me! You're one of a very small group of people who offered to write for one or more of my fandoms (usually I give the stats, but what with bucket offers not showing up this year, I won't) and I love you for that alone.

If you check out my userinfo, you'll find a 'thon policy which implores that you be true first and foremost to the prompt and your muse, and to consider whether I'd like a story as, at most, a secondary concern.

Just please no bashing of my favorite characters. Happy, uplifting fics are good, but so are soul-crushingly depressing ones so long as the pairings and characters get to be awesome. Ambivalent fics where we're not sure whether we should cheer or cry are probably best of all. If I didn't like existentialism and pseudo-nihilism in my fic, I wouldn't be a Joss Whedon fan.

Yuletide Noms!

Sep. 17th, 2013 | 06:52 pm

Yuletide nominations are upon us! That means its time for my annual post where I solicit suggestions as to which of my options as recorded in this list I ought to nominate. As in many years past, my nominating The ILLUMINATUS! Trilogy is pretty much certain, but everything else is at least potentially up for grabs.

I've made a few additions to my list of possible suggestions, so you might want to take a look at it. I'd especially appreciate it if you could provide any needed corrections for character names, since many of the books I added I only own in audiobook and don't always remember the last, and in some cases even the first, names of the character. I know The Squad in particular is in some disarray. *eyes [personal profile] fox1013*

Again, the list is here.

Phineas & Ferb: "A Moment in Time" [Gen]

Jan. 1st, 2013 | 02:27 pm

 A Moment in Time (1273 words) by Alixtii
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Phineas and Ferb
Rating: Not Rated
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Vanessa Doofenshmirtz & Stacy Hirano, Isabella Garcia-Shapiro & Stacy Hirano
Characters: Stacy Hirano, Vanessa Doofenshmirtz, Isabella Garcia-Shapiro, Ginger Hirano, Milly (Phineas And Ferb), Gretchen (Phineas And Ferb), Candace Flynn, Perry (Phineas And Ferb)
Summary: When Stacy, Vanessa, and the Fireside Girls are the only ones not affected by Dr. Doofenshmirtz' freezinator, they must work together to save not only themselves, but the entire Tri-State Area.

----------

I signed up for Phineas and Ferb offering only female characters (I think it was Candance and Isabella?). It's a fandom which really frustrates me with how often it fails the Bechdel test, so it was really important for me to include as many female characters as possible and focus on their homosocial relationships. ([personal profile] wneleh asked for gen, even though I was really tempted to throw in some Stacy/Vanessa femslash, because guh.) My original plan was to write an angsty introspective fic split into three sections, with about 350 words each from Stacy's, Vanessa's, and Isabella's perspectives. But I quickly realized that their canon characterizations are so totally wrapped up in their relationships to the male characters on the show that I didn't really have anything to write about. Thus I decided to write a slightly more plotty fic (in that there's a problem which needs to be resolved) completely from Stacy's perspective in which all of the girls (except for Candace) have to work together, which allowed for the possibility of growth on Stacy's part and some nice bonding between Stacy and Vanessa and between Stacy and Isbella.  [Dreamwidth] This entry was originally posted at http://alixtii.dreamwidth.org/352763.html.

Yuletide

Dec. 27th, 2012 | 05:14 pm

This yuletide, I've received Here's My Breast; Strike Home, which is the High School AU of 'Tis Pity She's a Whore you all know I've been wanting for a while now. It's told from Annabella's POV and is delicious and 'cesty, just like I wanted. Serious guh.

I wrote two fics this year for Yuletide. One's in the main collection, the other's in Madness. They both have pretty clear signs of my handiwork, one of them--ahem--perhaps especially so. If you're interested in guessing which I wrote, comments are screened. I'll unscreen any comments which aren't guesses unless you tell me not to.

Podfic!

Jan. 10th, 2012 | 02:06 pm

So [personal profile] tinypinkmouse linked some of her podfics of my stories to my originals on A03, including some she did over the summer--and which I'd had no clue even existed! This post at amplificathon includes links to podfics (and, of course, my original texts) for "Four Times Tony Stark Met Erik Lenscherr (And One Time He Didn't)" (Iron Man/XMM, Tony & Erik, minor het pairings), "Master and Commander" (Sarah Connor Chronicles, John/Allison), and "The Myrrh-Bearer's Gospel" (Biblefic, Mary Magdalene/Joanna). I'm especially excited about that last one, because I don't even know how to describe it, but there's something about [personal profile] tinypinkmouse's reading that just works for me (I think part of it is the congruence of her non-American accent with the non-American characters), and I'm not ashamed to admit that I choked up at a couple places as I listened to the podfic.

Plus she recorded Road to Emmaus (Firefly, Book, gen), which I did know about before, but can't remember if I mentioned in this journal or not.

And which reminds me that [personal profile] eosrose also recorded a couple of my stories over the past year, and even though I did know about those, looking over my recent entries I never pimped them here. So let me point out that she recorded Fatherhood (Parent Trap, Nick, gen) and Last Day on Earth (Ender's Game, Val & Peter, gen).

Lastly, recent acquisitions in technology related to present-giving on Christmas Day mean that I'm once again able to record podfic, so I spent this morning recording and then editing a podfic (link is to sendspace; it's a 23:40 mp3) of "Tiens, Voilà Dix Sous, pour la Salle-de-Bains" [text] (Buffy, Buffy/Darla).

Yuletide is Here, Happiness and Cheer

Dec. 25th, 2011 | 01:59 pm

Yuletide is upon us! I received Lead Me on a Merry Chase, a Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego? fic which pairs Player and Carmen. While I was originally thinking of Carmen as an A.I., my Yulewriter had the interesting idea of re-considering the cartoon as more of a MMORPG with Carmen being played by another human--out there somewhere. Plus, the fic takes the chance to do some interesting things with disability, since we never actually see Player walk (or do anything other than sit in front of a computer, really). But most importantly, the fic captures that flirtiness between Player and Carmen which interested me in the pairing in the first place and spin it out into a full femslash relationship.

I wrote two stories of larger than 1,000 words. It's possible I might still write some treats before Madness closes, but at this point I'm beginning to doubt it.

If anyone is interested in guessing which stories I wrote, comments are screened. I may or may not provide prizes to those who correctly guess. If you leave a comment which is not a guess, I'll unscreen it immediately unless you specifically tell me not to.

Yuletide

Nov. 22nd, 2011 | 11:11 am

I just put together a rough outline of my assigned Yuletide story.

The outline by itself is two-thirds the required length of the entire story.

Also, it's frelling awesome.
