Muse FM (J2, AU) MASTER POST

Title: Muse FM
Author name: [personal profile] cleflink
Artist name: [personal profile] dollarformyname
Fandom: CWRPS
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: PG
Word count: 31920
Warnings: Fantasy violence

Summary: Jared's job is boring, boring, boring. As a night security guard, he protects empty buildings by sitting on his ass and watching the security cameras while listening to a lot of talk radio. Not exactly the life he dreamed of for himself but hey, it's a living.

When he gets chosen for a new job babysitting the front desk at Muse FM radio station, Jared's mostly expecting more of the same. He's not expecting Jensen, the mysterious, hoodie-wearing host of Muse FM's overnight show, to catch his interest quite so thoroughly, or to be quite so difficult to figure out. He's not expecting so many unanswered questions about what, exactly, he's supposed to be protecting Jensen from. He's also not expecting to care so much about either of those things.

Oh, and he's definitely not expecting the monsters.

Acknowledgements: Massive thanks to [personal profile] dollarformyname for picking my summary and for making some gorgeous art despite so many other things getting in her way. She's so wonderfully talented and I am beyond lucky to get to work with such amazing artists year after year for this challenge. Your enthusiasm and determination have been truly amazing to experience, hon; I'm delighted that we finally got to work together after all this time! Everyone make sure to check out her Art Post and take a look at all the lovely things!

Hugs and thanks to [personal profile] dugindeep for being my sounding board, whip cracker and sprint partner. I missed you in the end process, my dear, *shakes fist at life* but it wouldn't have happened at all without your help, so thank you! Thanks also to Laura for the quick and dirty beta. Any remaining mistakes are mine.

Thanks as always to [personal profile] wendy for keeping this ship afloat year after year! This is my seventh year participating, and it's a (stressful) delight every year. You rock, Wendy!

And finally, thanks to all of you for reading! This one kind of took on a life of its own, so I hope you enjoy.

cleflink's Translation Policy

I've had several PMs and comments about this recently, so I want to take a minute to discuss my policy on translations.

Fandom: Sherlock BBC
Pairing: Sherlock/John

A/N: Written for the prompt 'misunderstandings' in round 7 of [livejournal.com profile] come_at_once. Because we can all use more retirement fic in our lives.

Summary: In which John is far too old for all of this excitement, but it was certainly better than the alternative.

John woke up to an empty bed and promptly panicked. )

Acknowledgements: I was brave (and lucky) this year and managed to claim the inestimable [livejournal.com profile] quickreaver for my artist, which was all kinds of fantastic. She is the master of haunting, beautiful images, and I had more ideas than I knew what to do with when it came to the piece that she submitted for claims this year. She was also very patient with me and my ludicrously long outline, even when I managed to make us miss our original posting day, and has created several gorgeous pieces to complement the story. Make sure you drop by her Art Post and leave her some love!

Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] dugindeep for helping me coordinate my many weird ideas into a single (hopefully) cohesive story, and for volunteering as a beta when I was losing my mind trying to balance RL, migraines and impending deadlines. I can always count on you, hon! You're awesome. :) Any remaining errors are my own.

Thanks to our lovely mods who keep us running smoothly, year after year.

And finally, thank you to everyone who gives this story a try. I sincerely hope you enjoy it!

And now for something completely different

Point the First: Exam season sucks. I'll touch base with all of y'all in a couple of weeks.

Point the Second: I don't usually do shameless plugs, but I make exceptions for family members. My sister has her first ever shirt design up for voting on threadless. If anybody is willing to take a look and, if you like it, give it an upvote, I would be much obliged.

Ta da!

The Honest Pupitician, a cool t-shirt design

Peace out! :)

First post of the year!

Hello everyone! I hope that you all had a lovely time over Christmas. Mine was pretty restful, which was great until I was forced to admit that all of the work that I brought home over the Christmas break still had to be done, and I've done mostly nothing since work for the past three days. Safe to say, the weekend is not going to be more of the same. :P

The semester is nearly over! \o/ Which means that I'm moving into one of the two busiest months of my entire year, but my second semester should be a lot lighter on marking, which will hopefully help me balance my time better. *fingers crossed* One of these days, I will learn how to manage my marking, I am determined!

I'm trying very hard to have the rest of my [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas fic posted before I go back to work on Monday. To the lovely people who commented on the original post, I shall respond to you once the rest is up so that you know that there's more to read. :P I'm also slowly trucking away on something for [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang, which is probably going to be my main fandom focus for the next little while. I have about a million WIPs on my computer right now, so one of my goals for 2017 is to finish as many of them as I can because it's getting ridiculous.

How are all of you doing?

Your Eyes Can Only Tell the Truth (CWRPS, J2) AU

Title: Your Eyes Can Only Tell the Truth
Fandom: CWRPS
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: G
Word count: (currently) 3470
A/N: Written for [livejournal.com profile] raeschae's pretend boyfriends prompt in the 2016 round of [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas. Because ridiculous fic tropes are the best kind.
[livejournal.com profile] raeschae I have a double apology for you. First of all, I'm sorry to have kept you waiting so long for your gift and, secondly, I must apologize because there's more of it yet to come that I just could not get finished in time even for my extended deadline. I intend to have the rest up in the next few days come hell or high water, so you (and everyone else) are welcome to wait and read it once it's properly complete.

Summary: Jared's master plan for getting his parents to stop worrying about his (lack of a) love life could maybe use some work.

I want you to come with me to dinner at my parents' this weekend as my pretend boyfriend. )

Validate me!

Hi guys, just wanted to let people who are interested know that [livejournal.com profile] stormbrite and I posted our [livejournal.com profile] j2_reversebang collaboration last night.



Summary: Even for New York, a wizard duel between a giant goth and a graffiti-slinging hobo is beyond weird. Maybe if Jensen's lucky, he's hallucinating the entire thing.

The Truth Spinner: A Beginner's Guide to Goth Wizardry (CWRPS, J2) AU

Author: [livejournal.com profile] cleflink
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] stormbrite
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Warning: PG
Word count: 4710
A/N: Written for the inaugural round of [livejournal.com profile] j2_reversebang. A million kudos to the lovely [livejournal.com profile] stormbrite for her gorgeous art and her incredible patience with me as RL conspired to make me late for pretty much everything about this challenge. I dearly wish that I'd had more time to work on this story, because it was such a fun premise to work with. Go to her Art Post and leave some much-deserved love! Also available on AO3.

Last chance!

(Two posts in one week? What is the world coming to?)

I just wanted to let people know that today is the last day to bid in [livejournal.com profile] herminekurotowa's Fandom Auction to help [livejournal.com profile] bt_kady. Check out the main auction page and my thread here.

Also, if anyone else wants a Christmas card, please let me know so that I can still mail it with a chance of it arriving before Christmas. Drop me your address here if you're interested.

That is all!

Fandom fun!

Hello all!

So RL is a little bit mental right now, but there have been some awesome things going on online that help make up for that.

Stuff, stuff, stuff )

I'm also offering up Christmas cards again this year to anyone (and I mean anyone) who would like seasonal greetings (and maybe a ficlet) from not-so-snowy Canada. :) If I've sent you a card in the past, can you please confirm whether or not your address has changed? Comments are screened in the event of addresses being listed, so just drop me a line below.

How's everyone else doing?
