90% public, 10% friends only


I'm polyfanamourous: An incredibly long list of my fandoms is here ; particular favourites include The Borgias, Da Vinci's Demons, Firefly, Legend of the Seeker, Revenge, V, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Librarians.

All of my fanworks and most of my entries, including some original fic pieces are public. F-locked are more personal posts, and occasional discussions on things such as sexuality, as well as some original fic pieces - read more about my original fic filter here.
My interests include reading, television and film, media representation, fanfiction and fandom, mythology and folklore, historical fantasy, eclectic paganism, wine, walking, pets, digital photography, and I dabble in baking, cross-stitch and knitting. I'm asexual and childfree and blog about those subjects.
If you're homophobic, or hate slash, or think asexuality isn't real, or hate fanfic, then we are not going to get along.

Currently: Adding, if we seem compatible.

Long venting follows below the cut in which I've finally finished watching DvD, I'm wondering if the DvD fandom is dead, I wonder why the BS fandom is so difficult to connect with, and while I find it hard to ponder a life without a fandom in general, I wonder if fandom is done with me.

Not signing up for LJ Idol means not having to write every week if you don't like the topic, though you can do so for the home game. This week's topic is "That One Friend". It reminded me of a piece I posted some time ago. I've now posted it to my fic journal too and at Wordpress.

Too Far: Kurt takes his girlfriend and his less adventurous friends out for sushi – with a twist planned for the evening

I stopped updating mid-month but I tried to keep writing things for NaNo Rebel Write-all-the-things. It became obvious I wouldn't "win" but I was aiming for 40k. I've failed at that too. Just over 36k isn't a bad total, it's just not what I hoped for.
As for achievements I've written and posted nine Yuletide fics (including my assignment and one that's just a drabble treat) - I would ideally make it a round ten. I finished and posted some WiPs (though distinct lack of comments on the last few make me question why), I've got a few more things to post in December when maybe more people are around, and I've got some that need final editing (though again I'm questioning it it's worth the effort).
I'm exhausted physically, mentally, emotionally. I'm *this* close to the disaster that was my dry spell. There are some real life issues that are making things difficult at this moment.
I'm glad November is about over because I'm done.

Title: Warmng the House and the Heart
Fandom: Black Sails
Characters/Pairing: Captain Flint/ John Silver, Miranda Barlow, Dufresne, Billy Bones, Other Characters Mentioned
Words: 2419
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Modern Setting, Trapped In Elevator, charles vane is mentioned, max is mentioned, some minor anne/jack, Housewarming, Party, Mild emotional hurt/comfort, Flint is in denial, First Kiss, Employer/Employee, Community: hc_bingo
Summary: Miranda drags Flint to John's housewarming party against his better judgement; Flint barely tolerates his employees during the week, disagrees with office romances, and is disturbed by his feelings for John. The party is one thing but then getting stuck in an elevator with the man is quite another.
For the hurt/comfort bingo prompt "trapped together" and in an elevator seemed like a good choice for that.
