A Writing Index and Landing Page

A Writing Index and Landing Page



Partway through 2011 I started semi-regularly writing short snippets of fiction, over time this has build up to where it can take a while to hunt down something I wrote previously. That calls for... An Index and Landing Page! I am putting this together initially as a single page. The remainder will likely soon go under a cut. Post-Dating to the end of 2013 to keep it at the top of the recent posts page. Indexes first, followed by a setting list.

30-Day Writing Projects:

  • Using Ravenswept's 30 Day list: LJ Link, (No DW copy currently)

  • Using Aldersprig and KC_Obrien's 30 Day list: LJ Link, DW Link



Prompt Calls:

Fic: Consequences (Followup to Just Purrfect)

Title: Consequences (followup to Just Perrfect)
Fandom/'verse: Magic School Doofuses, my current title for the stories of Jamsa and Nicolai at a school of magic.
Summary: Jamsa and Mandry head out to the Halloween Ball

Warnings: Use of a leash and shackles and a decided lack of mercy or sympathy from Jamsa's fellow classmates or the faculty for his being transformed into a catgirl.

Mandry knew her cosplay was not perfect. The costume was simple enough. A black dress, a red ribbon tied into a large bow atop her head, and a simple straw broom. That with a little work and she was Kiki the witch from Kiki's Delivery Service.

"Haha, good joke, now let me go."

If only she had a proper Jiji to be her familiar. Click here to continue... )

Ask My Characters Anything*

I have a few new things percolating their way towards being posted but that doesn't mean we can't have fun with stories that have already been posted. So go ahead and ask my characters anything*.

My fiction landing page is substantially out of date, so here are some helpful tags:


Preference is for responses on Dreamwidth. LiveJournal seems to keep losing my sign-in.


* - Ask anything, but the character might not know the answer, might have reason to prevaricate/lie, or might get censored to avoid spoilering. **
** - No guarantee asking characters questions will result in new fiction, but it will bring them back to mind and who knows were that will lead.

Poll: Pondering starting a serial

So my muse came and told me it had another great idea...

Muse: Heyeeee! I just had another great idea!
Me: Is it going to lunch?
Muse: Who cares about lunch. You should do a Tarot serial!
Me: ?
Muse: Create a cast with some spreads, then use a single card or maybe three to influence scenes.
Me: I see.
Muse: That's all you have to say? This is an awesome idea!
Me: it would keep wordcount going.
Muse: I'm still going to bug you about the other idea too.
Me: of course you are...

Now partly I'm a little worried that my muse decided to enter sounding like a Ree from the Eva Fic, Nobody Dies. I'm not sure if I'm up to having a Ree in my life. But this does seem like it could be fun. Now the current serials I'm reading are fantasy or urban fantasy so I'm thinking something science fiction-y.

I don't have a paid account, so no fancy clickable polls for me, answer in comments instead. Strictly a reader advisory poll, reserve the right to go off in any direction, (blah, blah, boilerplate here) but which possibilities sound good to you? Multiple answers allowed. Further comments welcome.

  • A) Adventures of a Tramp Freighter

  • B) Official exploration ship

  • C) Independent exploration ship

  • D) How'd we get on this spaceship?

  • E) One of the above, but fantasy adventures in space

  • F) ________________ (fill in your own idea)

Potential plotline prompts legal question

Today in worldbuilding Fluff gets to ponder immigration law. Given this takes place in a country on a portal reached techofantasy world I could make up just about any answer. But, given:
*character arrived in country while high school aged because father's employer asked them to transfer there
*neither parent nor child became citizens of the other country
*its been a few years since the move and the son just started attending a local college

What happens if the father gets upset enough to disown the son and kicks him out of the house?

So I get to figure out whether the son was on the father's visa (some Googling suggests that's how it would work for people heading to the US) or required to have a separate one, what the country's view is on the disowning&kicking out, and what the implications of that are.

Whee. Worldbuilding is fun. Especially when you don't have to worry about someone pointing to a source you never saw that shows you got something wrong.

Title: Just Perrfect
Fandom/'verse: Magic School Doofuses, my current title for the stories of Jamsa and Nicolai at a school of magic.
Summary: Jamsa asks a favor of his roommate Nicolai
Note: Follows after Quick and Dirty and Piece of Cake. Title spelling is intentional
Warnings: Violation of consent/trust. Jamsa's a jerk (then again Nicolai as well) (I think they might well both be Slytherins if at Hogwarts)

"Why not?"

"Why should I? Every time I have helped you this semester you've criticized me. Not one word of thanks. I don't know why you are even asking me."

Title: Tonya (Tries To) Hide
Fandom/'verse: Superhero setting
Rating/Warnings: Language of the four letter sort, recovering mind control victim, rudeness
Summary/Notes: Set after Ice Cream and before Trying to Surrender (Which should be posted here soon)
Words: ~4300


If anyone ever suggests you hide under a truck traveling down a rough dirt road? Don't. Really, trust me and just don't. I mean sure, it sounds like a good idea if you're a total idiot. I'm not and it didn't. But you know that old rule? If it's stupid and it works? Well, it worked. I even got away from my latest pursuers. For values of Got Away that only care about a lack of handcuffs and pointed guns. And not getting squished by the tires. Not values of Got Away that care about pain and agony and ruining the back of your favorite and only jacket. But still I got away.

Fic: Knotted Handkerchief

Title: Knotted Handkerchief
Fandom/'verse: No particular setting, modern day-ish.
Summary/Note: I hadn't heard of knotting handkerchiefs as a memory aid before, but reading about it made this not-the-same-but-same-words idea pop into my mind.
Prompter: Rix Scaedu
Triggers/Warnings: None that I see
Words: 556


It sat on her dresser for as long as I could remember. A bundle of cloth, the corners pulled together and knotted. Whenever any of us grandkids would ask what it was the answer was always the same. "Memories." We learned as well that you didn't want to be caught touching or even looking like you were going to touch the memories. Of course we all did. We knew there was paper inside. I probably wasn't the only one who tried undoing the knot but it never would budge even slightly. When grandmother's will was read the one thing I'm sure everyone was curious about was the fate of the memories. Who would get the memories, would they be be given on their own or as with something else, or would Grandmother ask that they pass with her.

Thimble-Flash: Dark Horse

Title: Retired

Note: Trying something new, going to see if I can link all five of January's prompts
Words: 355 (of a target 270-330 words, so a tad over goal)


Gavreel woke up before the sun as every morning. He saw the flashing light on his communications console and rejected the call before fixing a breakfast of filtered water and reheated vegetable stew. The farm had its own needs and he didn't have time to waste on his old life.

After a morning breaking ground for a new patch of beans he came inside for more water and fried oat cakes. A few key presses got rid of the blinking light once more.Click here to continue reading... )

End of April Prompt Call: Alternatives

It's been too long since the last prompt call so here is...

the Late April Early May Prompt Call

The theme: Alternatives

This prompt call's theme comes from [personal profile] rix_scaedu's suggestion, "If you have X, why do you need Y?" Feel free to interpret the theme as you wish, it should inspire you as well as inspiring me.

Prompts may be independent or draw on either of my uncompleted bingo cards:


The inevitable rules and guidelines:
  • I will pick a prompt from each prompter and write at least 100 words (seriously, I rarely write less than that, tiny flash is hard!). No guarantee of a full scene or story but prompts that catch my interest and inspire are likely to go further.

  • Fanfic prompts will likely be skipped in favor of others unless I'm familiar with the original.

  • Yes, prompts based on prior work of mine are quite welcome.

  • No porn requests please. A: I don't want to need to age-lock posts. B: You won't get much porn-with-plot in a few hundred words.

  • Each prompt should consist of:
    • A short sentence or phrase (and pointer to bingo card if drawing from one), and/or

    • A story or scene you'd like to see more of, and/or

    • A character you'd like to see more of

  • Prompts are free. (But I am open to paypal/word-count-bartering if you'd like to see more beyond the initial prompt response)

  • My out of date writing landing page

  • My writing tag to see previously posted work

  • (There is no ninth bullet point)

  • Bonus: I will add an extra hundred minimum words for prompters who haven't left prompts on previous prompt calls (minimum 200 words).

  • And I will do a second prompt for sharing a link to the prompt call.

  • There is no closing date at this time. When I pick a date to close the prompt call I will revise this page to list it here.

  • When the prompt call is closed I will add a note to that effect to the top of this entry.

Prompt for prompts

So I just looked and saw it's been quite a while since I did a prompt call. Pondering it for the last several minutes I decided I would first open up for prompt call themes. So far I have a few but I'm interested to see what all of you would be interested in.

* Ambition
* Delusions
* Family
* Hubris
* Playing Roles

And given that I'm requesting themes expect a new prompt call soon.

Short-Fic: Unexpected Baby

Unexpected Baby
Fandom/'verse: Unnamed Colony, Pre-Western Civil War
Summary: Jayce from Family Politics and a few other short pieces, a few months later (ack! Old writing! Must resist urge to shred and rewrite!)
Prompter: [personal profile] aldersprig
Triggers/Warnings: MC has a slave, mention of spanking and implications worse has happened to others
Note: Overdue entry for Trope Bingo 2015 trope Accidental Baby Acquisition (Considering they're now taking entries for the next round of Trope Bingo it's way overdue). Came out longer than I expected.
Words: Thousandish words


Jayce closed his eyes and sighed. When he opened his eyes nothing had changed. It never worked even if he'd really hoped wishing would work this time. Giving up he called his Aunt Gladys's extension and watched the little candy striped disc spin while he waited for an answer.



Earlier at mid-day...



Great Aunt Gladys called him into her office then left him standing by her desk while she continued to sift through paper and computerized reports. When she finally waved towards the chair in front of her desk and invited him to sit the clock his augments kept in the corner of his vision said more than a quarter hour had passed.Continues under the cut... )

Unused Trope Bingo Card Revival Prompt Call

Way back in January I picked up a Trope Bingo card with high hopes of going on a flash writing spree... Then promptly wrote to anything but those bingo prompts. Oops. I'm pretty sure I'm past the entry period now but I'm not going to let that card go to waste... So it's the Unused Trope Bingo Card Revival Prompt Call!

The process is simple, below is a bingo card. Look over the squares and for a trope that catches your interest. Reply to the original post here on Dreamwidth or the crosspost on LiveJournal with a prompt involving that trope. Prompts can be fanfic for things I've shown an interest in, go with settings or stories I've previously posted, or stand on their own. I will then write at least 100 words towards the prompt. If I complete a row or column we all get to share a cheer. If the whole card is completed we get to share a bonus cheer.

Key for card indications: When I receive a prompt I will put the used trope in brackets (you can still prompt on it, but unprompted squares will get the writing time priority). If a square gets more than one prompt I will italicize that square's text. If for some reason I decide to stop taking prompts to a square I will set the text to be crossed out. When I write a response to a prompt I will put a link to the response in the square. I reserve the right to reject a prompt if I find that it is something that bothers me (never needed to do this so far -- that is not a challenge).

New: I haven't done this before but unexpected car expenses are unexpected and annoying... If you would like to see a response to a prompt continued I may be willing to trade words of your own writing or $5/300 words. That said, if you want to help out with car expenses do check out Lucy Weaver's July Prompt Call, as I highly suspect wheel baring repairs cost more than a new set of cheap tires. If you do paid prompt for Weaver I will offer an additional 100 words towards a prompt you give me.

A reluctantly cut snippet from the maybe next Tonya piece

I've pretty much determined that this part is getting cut as I'll probably start the next piece a bit later in the events. But I like this bit so I'm going to share it here...

A short bit in which Tonya is dismayed to discover the empty mountain cabin is not as empty as she'd hoped.

Worldbuilding: New Liberty, the now-named colony on the still unnamed colony world

In my ___ Days of Worldbuilding post Aldersprig asks:

|Pre-Western Civil War:
|How does slavery work?
|What's the style of government, if anything?
|What's the tech level?

This setting shows up in four pieces from back in 2011 (content warnings: slavery, some violence, and serious-need-of-rewritingness):
* Family Politics, in which a young man wakes to find himself a prisoner.
* Izzy, a follow up to the previous piece from the viewpoint of the slave of the previous viewpoint character.
* The Talk, wherein Jayce decides Izzy needs The Talk.
* The Next Morning, which sees Jayce and Izzy having to deal with another change.


Content note: Involves question about both government and slavery within a setting and answers to said questions.

Political note: Yes, the founders of the colony claimed to be pushing for a conservative libertarian structure. Please note the word claimed in that sentence.

___ Days of Worldbuilding

Stealing an idea from [personal profile] aldersprig as I've been in a bit of a dry spell of writing. So, to get the fingers moving I'm opening up question time. Ask a question (or two, or three) about anything I've written and I'll try to answer at least one a day. Open to questions until I update this post to say it's closed.

Second Exploration of the Super School

Supers School, Second exploratory writing

Summary: Exploring a potential setting by writing a bit to it. Enter Rae, and return of Margarete.

Note: Editing, what's that? Exploring a setting and characters. Fizzles out at the end
Words: 1650 words


The beginning of the prior school year

Rae's old school hadn't had anything like the common room of Ocotillo Hall. It was like a laid back version of the library study rooms. Or maybe if you brought the cafeteria's outdoor seating indoors. A few tables were pushed over to the walls allowing for a wobbly loop of chairs to circle much of the space. Finally a girl with the tips of her hair dyed red stepped out into the circle. Rae recognized her from moving in the evening before, Margaret had been running back and forth half the time with a younger girl towed behind her with a stunned expression.

"Gather around newbies! It's time to start Ocotillo Hall's annual hazing ritual!"

"Margarete!" A short black haired boy stared at her from across the room. "Ixnay."

"Just a little hazing? Fine. Since Derek is being a spoilsport we can just go straight to introductions before we raid the food tables. Who wants to start?"Continues under cut, click here to continue... )
