[Background for you if you magically got here without being linked to it - I wrote this up as part of my fandom stocking post when I asked for music recs, and then realized that it was a bit, ahem, long.]

[Oh, and yes, I have a stocking! I'll make sure to link to it when it's up :D]

Genre talk. )

This brings me to the conclusion of this long winded ramble on music I love. I hope it helped! And even if it didn't, I hope you had fun!

I have a bit of time before I start college (read: tons), and so I figure it's about time I clear out my writing plate. I have a writing projects spreadsheet that is forty entries long. I wish I was kidding.

Below is a poll which basically asks you what kind of fic you want to see from me in, to help me prioritise my To Write list. (I've included my poetry and a couple of original ideas in the first question because I'm a completionist, even though they may not be things that you may want to see.)

Bear in mind that this poll is mostly a means for me to figure out what you guys want. There is every chance that even if the poll says "DO X!!! DO IT NOW!!!", my muse will rebel, I'll end up doing Y, Z and K, and poor X will be left malingering in the dust.

Also, I have a few commitments on my plate already. For one thing, TVU Bingo is going on, and as long as that goes on, short fics will be posted. For another, I have an epic length fic in mind for wcpairings (not in this poll), and that will be given priority in the form of daily writing time. For a third, some of my writing time will go into finishing fics for the Marvel is Marvel exchange (a few days in April) and the SSR Confidential exchange (a few days in May).

But obviously, my audience is you, and I want to give you what you want. So your vote matters!! Go forth and choose!

Title: Talking To The Moon
Characters (Pairings): Neal Caffrey (Neal/Sara).
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 301
Spoilers: Mild spoilers for S04E16
Disclaimer: White Collar is Jeff Eastin's brainchild. Not mine.
Summary: Looking for absolution.
Author's Note: Title from the Bruno Mars song of the same name. Written for Challenge #7 - Weekly Quick Fic 3, and the prompts Exit and Perception, over at [livejournal.com profile] writerverse.
This is stupid and cliched and I adore it okay. I can't seem to shake my fascination with drunk!Neal. Whatever. Self indulgent fic FTW.
Part of the Amis Amants 'verse. For more in this verse, click here.
P.S. - K13 made art for this fic for my birthday! It's also at the end of the fic.

Neal stumbles his way to the terrace, more than a little drunk. )

Because I'm mildly insane, and in a writing kind of mood, have a meme!

Reply to this post by giving me a character from any fandom you know I know, and five words; I'll tell you in five ficlets how those words might be associated with the character, however weirdly...

Obviously, I'll take time with the fills, but hopefully, they'll provide an interesting break from studying and writing :D
s2309: (writing)
I don't know why I signed up for this, because I have enough fics going on already, but this just feels like one of those things you do when you're in fandom, like brushing your teeth. Anyhow. Card. Yay!

Card! )
s2309: (puppy)
So I have exams, and then more exams, and will be avoiding the internet as much as possible till about June. I may pop in more often in April, but March and May and the beginning of June are going to be so shitty it's unreal.

I will still be writing (because I've learned my lesson from last time, and i'd like to get out of this sane) but I may not post any of it, and I definitely won't crosspost or read the amazing things that you write or reply to comments or comment on fics, and I'll generally be a very suckish fandom person till this is over, but in case you forget while I'm gone, you all are amazing people, and there is a special place in my heart for all of you, and i will be back. (probably not unscathed, but you can't have everything.)

Title: Lose And You Will Answer To Me
Characters (Pairings): Alan Woodford
Rating: R (profanity)
Word Count: 407
Spoilers: S06E06 (Au Revoir)
Disclaimer: White Collar is Jeff Eastin's brainchild. Not mine.
Summary: Alan Woodford is a very patient man.
Author's Note: This fic was born out of a conversation with [livejournal.com profile] reve_silencieux. We were discussing why Woodford was such an unconvincing villain, and then my brain went, 'Wait, maybe...', and then this happened. Also because of Elr's promptfest. There was one prompt - Woodford: Games - that I really wanted to write for, because it made me realize that barely anyone's written him in any significant way. (sapphire2309, champion of neglected characters. Sometimes I feel like slapping myself.) The only problem was, I didn't know what to write. Which meant that the prompt stayed with me, at the back of my head. And now I know what to write! And now I'll shut up.
No, wait. Title from The Ruler And The Killer by Kid Cudi. Okay, now.

Not that that's a bad thing, it is a VERY GOOD THING, but I have so much fic to write and I want to fic her too but I feel like I should watch more than just the Avengers before I do that and I DON'T HAVE TIME.

Or, alternatively, a guide would be helpful too. Which movies do I watch first? Where do I see her being awesome? I SO DON'T HAVE TIME FOR THIS.

It's starting to look like I'll have to play catch up with Halfamoon tomorrow. I'm in the middle of an essay which will not be done before midnight, by which time I will need to sleep. If anyone minds my posting two fics tomorrow, speak now or forever hold your peace (WHY DO I DO THIS OH DEAR GOD).

I seriously feel like I've missed something by only starting to watch White Collar from 3x12. Because Season 1 is just SO HAPPY OMG and now I want to write ALL THE POINTLESS FLUFF IN THE HISTORY OF EVER.
s2309: (writing)
...except, I am well known for failing hugely at writing to prompts. But, considering that the word 'treat' means that fills can be short and don't have to eat my brain (but oh god, I know they will), I think I'm going to go for this. Wish me luck!

The first five people who come trick or treating at my door will get at least 75-100 words of a something. All you have to do is comment with "trick or treat!" and leave me a prompt or a pairing or a character or a song lyric or anything inspirational, really. And please post this at your own journal so I can come trick-or-treating at your place!

I can only write in present tense. What even is this?
s2309: (June)
My time is being stretched very, very thin between schoolwork and editing and writing of my own, so till the end of October, unless I feel like I have time, I'm not going to be reading longfic. I know it's big bang season and there'll be a lot of longfic out there, but I really don't have the time for it right now. So, like, I'm still around, but please don't hate me if I don't comment on your fic?

Title: I Don't Feel So Well
Characters (Pairings): Neal Caffrey, Rachel Turner (Neal/Rebecca)

Spoilers: Through to the end of Season 5
Disclaimer: White Collar is Jeff Eastin's brainchild. Not mine.
Prompt: Never Kill A Boy On The First Date (BtVS episode title - S01E05)
Summary: Rachel's thoughts on Neal and Rebecca's first date.
Author's Note: For a challenge at gameofcards.
Title's from the Vienna Teng song of the same name.
I'm sorry, I'm completely blocked for Peter&Neal D: This is a thing I wrote a while back, it's only here for completeness' sake.

Never kill a boy on the first date. )

OMG I got tagged. *falls over*. Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] elrhiarhodan!!

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten friends.

1 Peoplewatching by Desmond Morris
2 Gifted by Nikita Lalwani
3 Love Virtually by Daniel Glattauer
4 The Denial of Death by Ernest Becker (reading this right now, so this is kinda cheating, but.)
5 Open by Andre Agassi
6 Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell
7 Charlotte's Web by E.B. White
8 Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? by Edward Albee
9 My Children! My Africa! by Athol Fugard (the last few are lit texts, what am i doing with my life? *headdesk*)
10 Little Women, Good Wives, Little Men and Jo's Boys by Louisa Alcott (I'm not sure what the series is called, but I *love* all the books in it)

There are many more books that touched me in some way, but these are all that I can remember right now.

I'm tagging [livejournal.com profile] reve_silencieux, [livejournal.com profile] turtlebaby_02, [livejournal.com profile] treonb, [livejournal.com profile] mizz_destiny, [livejournal.com profile] love_82, [livejournal.com profile] sallymn, and anyone who hasn't done the meme yet who I could have accidentally missed, because picking out names from my flist is so stressful, omg.

From my Masterlist (which is still not updated, shame on me, so feel free to flick through my fandom: white collar tag for fics that aren't over there yet), find a fic and choose a passage.

Then, post your passage in the comments below, and I will try to guess which fic it's from. If I get it correct, I'll share some information about the story - backstory, character motivation, possible future story ideas or cookies, etc. If I get it wrong, you'll give me a brief A/U prompt and character(s) for a brief ficlet.

This is also an excuse to show off my shiny new Neal icon :DDD

This is also going up now because hopefully, I post a bit of fic tonight. I've been weirdly active on LJ as of the past two days. ....is my muse (*gasp*) cooperating?! Let's hope this lasts!
