I appear to have committed fic.

The Edinburgh MA and his Rampant Highland Warrior
Chapters: 2
Fandom: The Comfortable Courtesan
Rating: T
Warnings: CNTW
Characters: Mr MacD-, Lord G- R-
Summary: ...an expression that suggested that the serious, civilised, free-thinking Edinburgh MA had long dreamed of being forced to serve the carnal lusts of a wild Highlander.

Following the discovery of Lady Bexbury's memoirs, scholars are forced to revise their interpretation of Alexander MacDonald's "Highland fragment".

Readers of Madame C-'s memoirs may recognise the inspiration of this scene.

I really didn't mean to spend time today writing metafic on the Law of Conservation of Cock Size in some nebulous historical period of badly-spelled English,* but I did. I blame [personal profile] lilliburlero for the inspiration, and [personal profile] antisoppist for hosting the original commentfic. And of course the anonymous member of fandom who formulated the concept in the first place. I am calling it a writing exercise.

You may find is on AO3 here.

*Or badlie-spelt Englishe. It takes a surprising amount of time to insert it.

More Yuri!!! on Ice fic.

Round and Golden by Nineveh_uk
Chapters: 1
Fandom: Yuri!!! on Ice
Rating: M, CNTW
Relationships: Chris/Victor
Characters: Yakov Feltsman, Victor Nikiforov, Christophe Giacometti

Summary: Victor has won gold at the Turin Olympics, and Yakov should be enjoying a well-earned rest. At least, he would be if Victor and Chris hadn't decided to put Victor's gold medal to some creative use...

A substantial portion of the blame for this fic lies with [personal profile] naraht for egging me on. Also, a bunch of students years ago who decided that what their art show catalogue cover really needed was creative use of ring doughnuts and caused me a busy morning at work.

Finally! Something crossed off the WIP list.

In the Studio
Chapters: 4/4
Fandom: Yuri on Ice
Rating: T, CNTW
Summary: The crowd in the stadium only had to scream their enthusiasm, the poor commentators in the TV studio had to try and make sense of what they were seeing... Finally it's the Grand Prix Final Free Skate!

*

Next up, either the Turin incident or, and I never believed I would write these words and yet here I am, the sex pollen fic.

I am taking the keywords in this to be 'in progress'. An idea in my head or notes jotted down, or even several pages of scenes, does not count for the purpose; this is basically the top of the pile that are most likely to be finished/actively worked on any time soon.

Corsica This is the untitled Wimsey/Harry Potter crossover fic about to have the mpreg ruthlessly cut, currently standing at c.85,000 words. It is not in fact going to be finished any time soon because there is still a lot to go, but I really, really want to finish this, and I really, really ought to make a push to finish this. I know where it's going, who the murderer is (because it is Wimsey/HP crossover crack-turned-casefic), I even know the final scene. I just have to write it all... I have no idea how much longer it will be, but I think it is unlikely to come in at less than another 20,000 words of plot, plus going back and taking out the mpreg and dealing with the narrative ramifications of that.

The Whispering Grass Non-crack, non-crossover, a take on a familiar fic scenario for Tanz der Vampire, i.e. how the Count came to accidentally murder his wife in a scenario that is basically Fields of Gold: the sick version. So classic angst-fic, really. I've got notes for pretty much the whole thing, I just have to write it up... This might be a recurring theme.

In the Studio. Yuri on Ice as observed by figure skating commentators. Three chapters posted, just one to go. I'm going to attempt to finish it this weekend; it shouldn't take long, just needs discipline and to re-watch episodes 11 and 12.

Round and Golden. Yakov-centric account of the unfortunate incident in Turin when Victor and Chris were teenagers. Another one for which I rapidly jotted down notes of the whole thing, but haven't moved on to doing the complete version. But it shouldn't take too long to finish.

Rostelecom hotel room. Untitled fic as to how Victor manoeuvres Yuuri into sharing a hotel room in Moscow and what happens when they get there. Half-written, know what's happening in the second half, just haven't bloody written it.

The Immovable Object In which Miles Vorkosigan meets the only power that might be able to stop him: the Vorkosiverse equivalent of the UKBA. The fact that the Vorkosiverse equivalent of the UKBA are the good guys in this story might give you indication as to how I feel about the narrative attitude some facets of Miles' character in the later books. And now all together - lots of notes, know where it's going, need to write up the remaining 80%...
And now time to get on with the day so I can do some of it!

I have committed further Yuri on Ice fic. Sorry, normal service will be resumed, I promised, and in the meantime there will be no soulmates AU.*

(1) A second chapter for In the Studio, with TV commentators Megan and John (and a techs chorus) at the Grand Prix Final.

(2) Yakov POV with teenage Victor A Coach's Lot. In which Yakov considers that part of his duties as a coach includes giving the professional equivalent of The Talk to young skaters heading off to international competition, in the hope that they won't do anything too stupid.**

I head north tomorrow for Christmas. Naturally I have not finished packing. When planning my break I did it with the intention of maximising the time spent with my family, and I'm really looking forward to that. At the same time, I think I probably ought to have given myself an extra day to sort myself out first, especially as I come back on the 2nd and am in the office on the 3rd. Still, I have nearly 6 hours on the train to relax...

* Famous last words.

** I want more Yakov fic. He's obviously very fond of Victor, does well by his skaters, and post-episode 10 his reasons for his immense cheesed-off-ness with Victor earlier in the series have become clear... Actually, I think what I want is comedy Yakov divorce fic, as witnessed by teenage Victor.

Deeply silly fic. I can only blame whatever germs are in the air at the moment or the week that I've had for giving me the urge to unwind on Friday night by writing figure-skating anime fic.

It is on AO3: Living the Dream.

Ask me a question about one of my fics or series. It can be absolutely anything in any project and I will tell you the honest-to-goodness answer (even on the progress/plans for next chapters of current series). You can also ask about my writing as a whole, if you like.

I have spent the morning working from home on a report, which naturally therefore involved spending the first two hours trying to get the new remote desktop set-up to work. It eventually did, but not without much teeth-grinding. Naturally I am therefore behind on where I wanted to be, while feeling that I have used more brain-power than if it had all started as planned...

You know how it goes. You gaze into the abyss and the abyss gazes back and asks you for a date. Before you know it you're married with two kids and it's claiming to be working late at the office again, and not one of its tentacles has ever done the washing up.

*

It has been a long week and I am feeling absolutely shattered, a combination I think of stress and a slight bug. Lunchtime's planned walk post-supermarket and collecting shoes from the cobbler* was cancelled when I got outside and discovered that the bright sunshine was accompanied by a cold wind and the walk across the car park was quite enough. Oh well, it looks nice. I have discovered that Ralph Fiennes is in The Master Builder at the Old Vic. I think that profitable use of the afternoon may yet be found in booking tickets.

*Nothing improves a day like the realisation that the reason your foot feels a bit damp and cold is that your sole has a hole in it.

A sort of resolution is that henceforth when I have ideas for stories I should note them down rather than try to keep them in my head for years before eventually deciding I have time to write them. I don't have to write them straight away, just make a note. Naturally therefore noting something down turned into writing it more or less straight away*. I'm not entirely sure that this ought to be 2016 as I mean it to go on, but productivity counts for something, right? Even if the contents are completely mad.

So yes, fic. At A03: Uneclipsed

As for the content, it is, er, Dorothy Parker RPF/Tanz der Vampire crossover. I can't help it, it's the way my mind works. One minute you're listening to Total Eclipse of the Heart with vampires, next you're putting an English degree to dangerous use to reflect that the scenario fits beautifully against a Dorothy Parker poem, and then a month later you remember that you thought that and decide that clearly a crossover is the way to go.

It is a jeu d'esprit that I can't honestly think that it is of any interest to those who don't know the canon, so as a reward for reading thus far here is Parker reading One Perfect Rose instead.




*I blame walking to work on Tuesday

Of all the things I was planning to do this morning, writing David Eddings fic came very low on the list. Especially David Eddings theological discussion fic. But this is what I have done.

It is posted at A03: A Question of Doctrine.

I could be worse, it could have been that fic I keep thinking about writing that explains that the reason Styric clothing is distinctive is that they have invented bias cut.
