*waves* Hello friends!

It has been a busy few weeks chez clef, let me tell you.

First of all, I do intend to finish all of the prompts that I got in my song meme, so thank you to everyone who contributed. Most of them are half-written, but I haven't had a chance to go back and get them done.

The reason for the delay is that my costume for Dragoncon wound up being FAR more time-consuming than I expected, with several setbacks that required some creative problem solving to work around. Turns out that wings are harder than they look!

Dressed in something girly for once! )

As soon as I got back from the convention, it was back to school! (Seriously, my flight was delayed, and then we had to drive from Buffalo airport into Canada, so I got home at, like, 3am, and was up at 7am to go to work). I'm at a new school this year, which is always intimidating, but everything and everyone seems good so far. I'm hoping to join the Age of the Geeks club as a teacher advisor. :D

I've signed up for both [ profile] j2_reversebang (for which I've claimed an awesome prompt) and [ profile] spn_reversebang. I love reversebangs. :) I'll be signing up for [ profile] spn_j2_xmas as soon as I get my requests organized, and I'm slowly chugging away at my story for [ profile] sherlock_remix. Oh, and I'm going to be making stuff up for heading up a discussion about world building at [ profile] spn_writing next week, which I hope people will show up to so I'm not just talking into the void. Who needs sleep?

How are things with everyone else?

*explosive breath*

Every year, I wonder if Reversebang claims will be less crazy than usual and every year they are totally not. ILU FANDOM, even when you are madness on wheels.

I, in my very conspicuous first place, won a lovely and talented artist to work with and am totally looking forward to this prompt. SPN and dragons! One of these things is normal for me. The other one shall be an adventure. :D

I hope that everyone else got some awesome matches and that those artists still waiting know that you are also fantastic and someone is definitely still looking forward to working with you (No, seriously, two of my top five are still up there. I mean, what?).

Also, I was recently on vacation (in ENGLAND!), so expect a pointless collection of photos from me sometime soon.

*twirls* I love RBB!
Title: CAUTION - Children at Play
Fandom: CW RPS
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: G
Word count: 880
A/N: Picking up on my August prompts again, this is for [ profile] annabuffy, who asked for 'baby-fic/kid-proofing' from FRAGILE - Handle with Care. I'm sorry that I'm a month too late for your birthday, hon, and I hope you had a good one! Also available on AO3.

Summary: Jensen questions his suitability as a babysitter.

Does he come with shin pads? )
Title: WARNING - Watch Your Step
Fandom: CW RPS
Pairing: Gen (Jared/Jensen pre-slash)
Rating: G
Word count: 1215
A/N: Day 3 of my August fic challenge (for a fairly liberal definition of 'day'). For Bunny7033 who asked for Jared's POV of his first time meeting Jensen from FRAGILE - Handle with Care. In other news, I cannot believe how well this icon suits this story.
Also available on AO3

Summary: The love of Jared's life just landed on his head. Not the most auspicious first meeting.

Jared yelped as he went down in a tangle of limbs, the back of his head hitting the floor hard enough to make sparks flash behind his eyelids.  )
My writing output this year has been rather lower than I would like it to be and I have one month left of summer vacation so I am going to try to challenge myself to post one (short) story every day in August. And I would really appreciate your help coming up with things to write, denizens of LJ!

Types of prompts I'll accept:
- Timestamps
- Alternate POV timestamps (I love doing these jsyk)
- Entirely new story ideas

Every fandom on my Master List is fair game (you're also welcome to ask after others if you think I might know them).

I'll accept timestamp requests for any of my stories.

Since I don't know how many people will join in, you are welcome to give more than one prompt - just make a separate comment for each prompt, okay? And try not to overload me too much (unless you notice that you're the only one playing *wry*).

I'll leave this post up sort of indefinitely and then see what happens. Request now, think about it for a while and request later, realize on August 23 that you have a great prompt and request then, it's all good.

Right, so my recent cosplay post has revealed that some of you poor people have never seen The Labyrinth, which is a tragedy of monumental proportions. To that end! I am wondering if anyone is interested in a Labyrinth watchalong.

How it works:

- We set a date/time that is convenient for the most people
- I provide links to the movie, with the options for streaming or download
- At the appointed time, we all begin
- I open a post on my journal for random comments as people watch, so it's like we're all watching in one big, intercontinental living room!

This is, of course, also open to people who have seen the movie before - one can never watch The Labyrinth too many times.

[Poll #1975118]
It is warm enough to snow today! \o/ (No, you didn't read that wrong. I live in a stupid country).

What I am ACTUALLY here to say is that the amazing and talented [ profile] becc_j has created a beautiful piece of art to go along with my rockstar!Jensen story, Gently Play upon Your Heartstrings.

Insert delighted flailing here )

GO! Check it out here and give Becc much love!
[ profile] spnspringfling did its reveals this morning! I did an absolutely pants job at guessing what submission was whose, but this does mean that I can now officially gush about the wonderful story that I received from [ profile] marciaelena: In the Meantime, which is a wonderful look at Sam and Dean in the quiet spaces between saving people, hunting things and fighting to save the world. There's a sense of wordless connection here that I absolutely adore and, like all of my favourite Wincest stories, it's impossible to find the line between being 'brothers' and being 'lovers' because they're so tangled up in each other that labels don't matter.

And here is my (somewhat cleaned up) offering! (Anybody guess it was mine? Didn't think so. *winks*)

Title: An Influence More Powerful
Fandom: Supernatural
Characters: Sam, Dean (gen)
Rating: G
Word count: 2045
Warnings: bittersweet, angst, mentions of canon character deaths
A/N: Written for [ profile] keep_waking_up's wonderful prompt of 'Sam in Dean's jacket' for the 2013 round of [ profile] spnspringfling. I rather doubt se was looking for angst, but my brain obviously thought this was a great idea. Originally posted here.

Summary: Touchstone [noun] - a criterion or standard by which something is judged or recognized.

Dean's jacket was warm )

Man, there's like no fiction getting posted here recently. Sorry.

I return! *bows* Well, technically I returned yesterday, but there's always stuff to catch up on after being away so I was kind of busy. Also, I hadn't checked LJ or my email since last Monday, so I had a lot of backlog to go through. *grins*

My convention was very good! A little colder than I would have liked as there's walking both from the hotel to the convention and from one part of the convention to another (it takes up half of a convention centre and public rooms in three different hotels), but there was no rain which I count as a win. Our costumes turned out well, although we were totally working on them right up until the moment we left the hotel, which is always a bummer. So many little details that take four million times longer than you expect them to. I do not have pictures yet because I was not the person whose camera was used, but I shall try to post some on the weekend.

And I have nothing else to say!
YOU GUYS, YOU GUYS. [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang claims just happened and my summary got picked by the amazingly talented [ profile] petite_madame! I am so very excited, you have no idea. Nearly did a spit take at my computer screen when I found out, I kid you not. Now I just have to make sure that I can turn the disaster of a rough draft I've got right now into a story that measures up to the fantastic art she's doubtlessly going to produce. :P

I'm pretty stoked about my story this year. It's rather different from my normal fare, so I hope y'all will like it when posting time comes around.

Here's the summary I submitted for artist claims:
There are a lot of tools of Jared's trade: green thread for hope, copper plating for endurance, silver needles for vitality. In a world where heartbreak is a literal condition, it's Jared's job to sew, patch and mend the physical wounds left in people's hearts by lost loves, misunderstandings or betrayals.

When a killer attacks Jensen - the man who's responsible for the purple stain of unrequited love on Jared's heart - and steals half of his broken heart, Jared discovers that a needle and thread, desperation and a sharp scalpel are enough to let him sew part of his own heart onto what's left of Jensen's. But, as Jensen recovers, they both realize that Jared's procedure may have done more than save Jensen's life. His actions will tie them together in a way that goes far deeper than flesh.


There are a whole lot of other author-artist matches that I'm super excited to see happening, too; it's going to be a great bigbang year for sure!


(Also, if I've been a total flake replying to anything recently, I am sorry. It's been a bit of a crazy week or two).
*waves* So, here's a belated note to say that my trip to Vegas Con and the America hinterland was rocking. I'll probably do some kind of write-up, for myself if nothing else, but here's the vacation in a nutshell: the con was fantastic, Las Vegas is memorable and vaguely impossible, Andre Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra are absolutely amazing, deserts are hot, the Grand Canyon is high and coming back to the snow was bloody miserable. All in all, great fun.

Also, have some fic!

Title: The Stars Look Very Different Today
Fandom: CWRPS
Pairing: Jared/Jensen, or maybe it's gen, I guess I never really specify
Rating: PG
Word count: 2610
A/N: This is for [ profile] wolfstarblade because she asked nicely. It is probably not at all what she was hoping for, sadly; I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED, HONEST. Title is from Space Oddity by David Bowie.

Summary: It started with a headache. Non-au!au

Luckily, tense and worn thin was a normal look for Sam, so no one called Jared on his sudden inability to act his way out of a paper bag. )

You guys, you guys! Guess what awesome thing [ profile] cassiopeia7 has done?

She has created this beautiful piece of art for my and [ profile] onceuponarhi's RBB story The Heart of Everything!

This piece is just stunning, guys, for serious. I have been reliably informed that there are four million different greens in there to get Jensen's scales and wings looking awesome and shaded and LOVELY. And there is sprawled on the floor Jared, which the world can always do with more of, and he is wearing a VEST and his legs are long and gorgeous, and I want to ruffle his hair. And Jensen's face is so very much a Jensen face while still being, well, dragon face. Eyebrows FTW!

So go look and be delighted and tell [ profile] cassiopeia7 how much she has delighted you. Go!

Just a quick note to say thank you to all of you lovely people who wished me a happy birthday yesterday; it was a surprise and a delight to receive all your well-wishes. It was a very nice birthday: I spent the day playing board games (anyone else tried 'Defenders of the Realm'? It was good fun), then went out dancing in the evening. FUN FOR EVERYONE! Aand, I wrote nothing. Oops?

Thank you to: [ profile] becc_j, [ profile] 2people2, [ profile] ldyavalon, [ profile] akintay, [ profile] heartblowswild and [ profile] enablelove for the birthday wishes and [ profile] tebtosca, [ profile] blackrabbit42, [ profile] equally_dour, [ profile] cherie_morte, [ profile] ordinaryink and [ profile] cassiopeia7 for the birthday wishes and v-gifts! You're all fantastic! HUGS.

Also, thank you to everyone who has voted in my poll. Being the contrary whatsit than I am, it kind of makes me want to turn Jensen into Professor Layton, but it truly is quite helpful even if I do kind of want to write all of them, now.

And a Happy New Year to everyone!
The new Hobbit trailer was released today. Yes, I am excited. No, this should not be a surprise. Based on this preview, I'm pretty sure I was right about where they're going to be cutting the film (Warg battle! Rescue from above!). I suspect a lot of this was in the preview that the lucky people at ComiCon saw, but I don't care because I have not seen it before. And it's awesome. *flails* 86 days to go! (I know, shut up).


TL;DR, The Hobbit is awesome and cleflink is insane.

I have not done one of these before, but I think maybe there might be at least a couple people out there who like to make me smile?


Full Meme | My Thread
*waves* Sort of exciting things have been going on in the life of me, namely, my degree is finished! *fist pump* Which means that my post high school life looks mostly like this:

- Undergrad degree = get!
- Post Grad diploma = get!
- Masters degree = get!
- Another Undergrad degree = get!
- Job = ... orz

But still, yay for being done! And my annual anime con was the other week, which was great fun, as ever. And our costumes were awesomesauce.

On Friday we looked like this... )

And on Saturday/Sunday... )

I'm on the right in the first photo and the far left in the second. And my compatriot in the Friday photo is on the far right in the Sat/Sun one, if anyone cares. Amazing the difference a wig makes, ne? One of these days, I'll show you my Dean Winchester. ^_~

In other news! Not much really. My posting date for [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang isn't until July 25 (which I am undertaking with the very talented [ profile] mithborien), so I'll let you all wait eagerly for that *cough* while I dick around with some shorter bits.

That's it from me. Peace!

Note to self: Do not read fic from a kink meme for a video game you haven't finished yet - people are not nearly so considerate about spoilers as the people you are used to.

*flails* And I've been doing so well too! God damn it December, I really didn't want to know about you just yet.

I think this requires ice cream therapy.
