Batfic: Twenty

Ah, writing... sometimes it's like pulling teeth from the mouth of a persnickety alligator, and then there are the stories that just kind of flow from your fingers and take on a life of their own. This is one of the latter.

I listened to this song on repeat while I was writing. It's incredibly beautiful and heart-breaking and inspirational, but it produced a pretty dark story, so... beware. And I decided to give Jason a break from angsting, so Tim came out to play instead. Poor dear. *pets him*

Enjoy, all!

Poor Tim.

On another, more personal note, I am in the middle of my senior-year crisis, aka, WHAT THE HELL AM I GOING TO DO WITH MY LIFE WHEN I GRADUATE. At first I was thinking grad school, then I was thinking publishing, and now I'm back to grad school and I JUST CANNOT DECIDE. GRAGH. I NEED TO MAKE A DECISION. But at the moment all I can do is mope and whine and assume my life is ultimately going to be a failure.

So. Yes. There's that. Stupid senior year.

Okay, off to silly things like class. Tootles!

WOOOOO.

I am sleepy and thus going to bed soon, but I just wanted to report that after an exhaustive FOUR HOUR WRITING STINT today (apparently listening nonstop to "The Dark Knight" soundtrack helps)...

I AM OFFICIALLY FINISHED WITH MY SUPES/BATS BIG BANG. HUZZAAAH. :D

It ended up at about 19,400 words, which is even longer than my Inception bang. WHAT WAS I THINKING YOU GUYS. /headdesk

But yes, dear ducklings! That means that I now have two Big Bangs successfully under my belt. Which makes me all kinds of happy. \o/

And now I'm off to chug a glass of water and go to bed. And then I'm heading to Fright Fest at Six Flags tomorrow because it's almost Halloween and I love Halloween!

Speaking of Halloween, my Carmen Sandiego costume is just about finished - all I need now is a yellow ribbon to go around my fedora, and then I'm done. Can't wait for next weekend! I may try to post some pictures, too.

Anyone else really excited about their costumes this year? Let me know!

Hope you're all doing well~

DCU Fic: Fugue (1/2)

This post is proof that I have secretly been productive at writing fic! I've just been working on longer projects, that's all. Like this (which spun out of control, as fics often do) and my Big Bang.

ANYHOODLES.

I decided to take part in bradygirl_12's 2011 DCU Fic/Art Halloween Challenge. I'm honestly pretty geeked about this fic, guys. First of all, because I love Halloween, and second of all, because I finally get to write what I have always wanted to write: young Bruce Wayne in Smallville! \o/

Without any further ado, here is the first half of my Halloween fic! Enjoy, guys! :D

GPOY and BB Update

This describes pretty accurately how I feel after my incredibly stressful week:

ily couch

AND. AND. I have officially reached 8,760 words on my superbat_bb, which is 260 words over the minimum I had to reach by October 1. Which means I AM OFFICIALLY KIND OF BARELY AHEAD OF SCHEDULE, YOU GUYS. YAAAAY. :D

I am also looking for a beta. Any takers...?

Oh, and I watched the premiere of Supernatural with my friend and was... torn. No super spoilers, but my thoughts can be summed up as follows:

1) Dean, you are kind of an ass.
2) Sam, you are kind of a sweetheart.
3) Poor Cas.
4) Death, I love you and your classy pickle-chip eating self.
5) Crowley, please always be scruffy and drunk and precious.
6) Bobby, I love you, too. Always.

Okay, nothing more to say. Sleepytimes now. And then more writing! Oy.

Batfic: Missed

So I've been working on and off on my superbat_bb and... well, I needed to write something else. So I sat down, put on some music, and started writing.

Somehow, fluffy smut came out. I am utterly baffled. First of all, because fluffy smut seems like an oxymoron. Second of all, because I have long been out of practice writing smut. But apparently Dick decided he wanted to pounce on the Batman and have some sexytimes, so I let him.

Anyhoodle, enjoy my first foray into the world of Batsmut! XD

Title: Missed
Rating: R
Characters: Bruce/Dick
Word Count: ~970
Summary: Bruce has been off-planet on a super-secret JLA mission for four weeks, and Dick is more than ready to have him back.

Ah, well. I'm off to write real things now. Later, lovelies! ♥



PS: If anyone is wondering where my Master List went, I took it down because I tried adding this story to the Batfic section and the formatting kept getting all fucked up and I was about four seconds from shooting someone in the face. Like myself. So... yes. My apologies! I will try to get another list up sometime when my head is not about to explode.

I'm Alive!

Yes, dear ducklings, I am still alive, despite my lack of posts in the past week or so. School has officially started and I've been reading like a maniac before I have to read stuff for school, so my writing productivity has gone way down. Also, I've been spending a lot of time at the lake house where there is little to no internet, so I'm way behind on my flist and... well, basically everything else internet-based.

I am, however, working on a few fics on the side, like a Young Avengers fic and my Super/Bat Big Bang. And I have decided that plots are hard and I do not enjoy them. All I want to write are fluffy drabbles forever and ever. /poutpout

Anyhoodle! I actually have some homework to do now (headdesk) and a shower to take, so I GOTTA GO.

Peace out, yo! Let me know how you're all doing! :D
Batman

Art: BOOP.

I doodled again! \o/

Actually, I cleaned up a doodle from my creative writing notebook, but eh. Nuance.

Behold: DAMIAN WITH A KITTY. :D

Collapse )

I freaking love Damian and kitties.

This can also be found at my deviantART account.

Have a fantastic night, y'all, and enjoy the silly doodle!
Batman

Batfic: Waiting

I'm still working on a couple of the other prompts I promised to tackle, but I had the sudden urge to write wee!Dick again and was inspired by a gorgeous, heart-wrenching song ("I'll Just Have to Wait" by Steven Curtis Chapman) used in a video montage of soldiers surprising their loved ones (which made me bawl like a baby), so... this is what came of it!

It's just a simple little story, but I had a good time writing it. I love bitty Dick.

Enjoy, guys! :D

Title: Waiting
Rating: PG
Characters: Alfred Pennyworth, Dick Grayson, Bruce Wayne.
Word Count: ~1200
Summary: No one had heard from Bruce in almost twenty-one days.

Thanks, guys!

Batfic: How Far We've Come

Ughhh, I've been so unproductive lately. I badly need to get back into the habit of writing. In order to remedy that, I asked for prompts and threepiecesuits requested Robin Pizza Night, so voila!

This is nothing too special, really. Just a slice of life (ahaha - PIZZA PUN!) to get me back in the swing of Batfic. It's set in the DCnU, partially because it fit well, and partially because I'm still trying to make myself feel better about the reboot. I figure I have to come to terms with the changes eventually, so... ta-da! This is progress. WOO. \o/

Anyway, enjoy!

Title: How Far We've Come
Rating: PG
Characters: Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Damian Wayne.
Word Count: ~1400
Summary: Pizza, beer, conversations and stalking on an abandoned rooftop. Such is the life of a Robin in Gotham.
Notes: Set fairly early in the DCnU, so Dick is back to Nightwing, Damian is Bruce's Robin, and Jason is in his new costume.

And now I must sleep. Good night, dear ducklings!
