So I wrote a metric fuckton of fic this year.

My actual assignment was Memorial, written for [ profile] not_from_stars for Black Jewels Trilogy, about the friendship between Karla, Gabrielle, and Jaenelle, and the things they build as a trio. It was...a challenge, I confess, but there are things I really like about how it turned out.

And then there's all my treats.

if you were curious which were mine. )

AND SO THIS IS YULETIDE AND WHAT HAVE YOU DONE and all that, I'll put these up on my fic journal uhhh later. Any concrit or comments or thoughts or "Lise, you're nuts" is welcome to go here as well. Thank you to my writer, Ariana, thank you to my betas, and thank you to the prompters who made me go absolutely nuts.

NOW FOR NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS TIME. (and replies to comments.)

ETA: ...I just discovered "The Inappropriate Elf Challenge" which, while it could be porn, is actually, 'crossover with a fandom that should never have Elves.' And I'm taking this as a challenge. SO FOLKS what fandoms should never be crossed over with The Silmarillion/Tolkien's Elves? *shot*
these are the scenes from my own fic that I would illustrate. )

And then there are the fics I've written because of other people's illustrations but we're not going into that. And the ones for Yuletide that will be here after the reveal.
Her Eyes - Future!fic, in which Elves are released from Mandos. Everything about this I love. There are perfect little details - Caranthir likes the modern arms trade, Celegorm makes a brief appearance as his annoyed and slightly disappointed self, and Aegnor and Finrod are spot on and it's just - adorable all over and the ending leaves it full of possibilities. I think I ship this now, just for this one fic.
Meldor - Maedhros/Fingon. The writing is lovely, it's set up as a recovery fic after Thangorodrim - the first piece describing Maedhros' pain is gorgeous and the rest of it lives up to that. There is such a sense of brothers-in-arms-but-more that characterizes this pairing, in my head, and the way Fingon shepherds Maedhros along and at the same time he's so determined to recover and is worried and focused as always - in capitalism!AU, Maedhros would be a workaholic, I suspect. Am I right or am I right?

Gemology - Emily Roland fic, in which she is a perfect child - curious, intelligent, asking too many questions. There is just such adorable and authentic character in this, and again, the details as when Emily considers whether she might be half-dragon...I loved it.
wisdom to the mighty, honor to the brave - I don't have much coherent to say here but pretty pretty pretty. It's set after Victory of Eagles and is just a fantastic medley of interactions between Tharkay (who is priceless), Granby (who is adorable), Laurence, and Riley, and while my attention span doesn't often hold for fic of long lengths, this filled in the gaps of things I needed to see nicely.

Doctrine of Labyrinths
Medicine for the soul - Felix and Mildmay, genfic after Corambis AND I WANT MOORREEE this has been the first fic in a while, completed, that I have sincerely wanted to see more of because what was there just didn't give me enough. I wanted! More of it! And that's a good feeling.

A Song of Ice and Fire
Snow and Stark - My actual fic that I received! It has Jon and Robb being close and adorable and brotherly, and I don't know how this person knew all my pseudocanon but they did, somehow. They steal a pie! And are competitive and adorable! Robb is noble and a little bit dense! I loooffff it.

Guesses on which fics I wrote are/are not allowed, lololol. Still working my way through, and of course there's all of Yuletide Madness yet to see...

I have so many things I want to write I can't decide what to do first! This is a novel problem.

I am obsessed with the song "Viva Discordia" by That Handsome Devil. It is so freaking catchy oh my god. Kind of ridiculous. Doing pretty well overall, really glad that this week is almost over. Mostly updates!post and some writing things. November is coming, did you bring your coat? More on NaNoWriMo as it gets closer. Though "closer" will be pretty soon. Also Wheel of Time in a few dayssss!

I'm a bit excitable now. ...and GOD THIS SONG. It's weird but I can't stop listening o.o

In other news, look what came in the mail today!

yes, more russian update, I'm sorry )

We'll see if more comes of it.

Secondly, I counted and have twenty prompts on the Five Things meme. Writing them in drabbles or sort of, so these will be coming a bit at a time, though I'm hoping to get them all done before too long so I can work on extending those 'one sentence fics I've never written' prompts I want to expand.

Title: Crimson and Strychnine

For the May prompt on [ profile] fst - "If Your OTP Was A Musical." And the idea of this one was too diabolical to deny. Also pretty incredibly terrible. Expect more DoL media in the future, a good bit of it probably along these lines. This relationship fascinates me in an absolutely awful kind of way. I think I may have problems.


Crimson and Strychnine )

I finished Corambis today, and you know what that means. You're in for a book review! :D You lucky people.

But I'm doing this one a little differently, or trying to. I'm going to look back at the series largely as a whole and try to be as little spoilery as possible. So - here goes.

I picked up Melusine because it was one of those many books that I went to the bookstore, picked up, looked at, and put back. Several times. Eventually, I said 'fuck it' and went to the library to check it out. I started the book one night and stayed up until 3 am finishing it. Before I was very far in, I knew that this series was a keeper. And went through the next two just as quickly. The end of The Mirador left me curious and wondering where things were going to go, as well as a little depressed. Several weeks ago Corambis arrived, but I was in the middle of a book and felt bad starting another, so it sat on my windowseat staring at me in reproach until I finally surrendered and started reading.

At about 5 o' clock yesterday.

Length cut, only slight spoilers )

More favorite moments in this book than I can count. I'll have to go back and read it again. And soon. But I swear I'll finish my other material first, really! XD

Lise is pleased. The board rests.

(additionally, we have been watching Harry Potter the First in Spanish and it reminds me of 1) how omg little they were and omg adorable little Hermione is in her bitchy know-it-allness, and 2) how much I friggin love Snape. o__o I need to go back and reread. Think I'll go hunt down bits now.

Of course the fact that he has Alan Rickman's sexy sexy voice might have a little to do with remembering this. omgAlan. Talk to me in that voice all night long. Mmm.) doesn't even matter that I can't hear his voice in the movie itself. I hear it in my mind.

Began brainstorming for possible new story. Commitment, I fail at it. XD Also, things I Need to Do: a. Write Corambis based fic. Jot notes. b. catch tags properly c. finish "At the Mountains of Madness" d. sleep moar. e. crush the Egyptian empire. f. Make musical FST for Felix/Malkar (!) e. talk self out of anything stupid

My life, she is busy.

Stolen from [ profile] skaryma. I like writing presents for people! :D

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request a drabble of any pairing/character (from one of my usual fandoms). Original fic is also allowed--you can toss names, photos, descriptions of personalities at me--with the provision that none of the characters be from any works in progress. In return, those ten people have to post this in their journals, regardless of their ability level just post if you want to. Could be fun.

A tentative list of fandoms I am comfortable/have written in/would be willing to try, but throw ideas at me regardless fandomtown )

Have at!

...also, ThouShaltNot are fucking brilliant. This always needs repeating. .____.
