minkhollow: (what is this i don't even)
Brought to you by this week's helping of Cold Case feels: Now I want the fic where HG hears about the '38 War of the Worlds broadcast and wonders why no one seems to've read her bloody book with that plot.
Meanwhile, Fic Friday! Same deal as last week; leave prompts here if you're so inclined and I'll answer them.
the Twitter side of things )

Fandom opinion of uncertain popularity: I'm not sure Once Upon a Time has it in it to be more than a three-season show without getting horribly bloated. There are only so many stories and only so many ways to tell them without disregarding everyone else, and sooner or later they'll have to have whatever the final battle's going to be. I'd rather see the show go out on a high note than wonder why it's still going far past when it should have stopped.
(I'm caught up now, at least until Sunday. That was the second least surprising reveal they've done so far - Queen of Hearts takes the full Least Surprising title. But I do like that there weren't easy answers for anyone, and Charming trying to untangle poor Henry's family tree was hilarious.)

Meanwhile, Fic Friday! Now with optional commentfic edition (snagging guidelines from [personal profile] ladyoflorien): leave prompts in the comment section for fics you'd like me to write; they can be anything, anything at all! If you're participating as well, link me to the post where you're accepting prompts so I can return the favor. Since there is no 140 character limit here, the technical limit is whatever will fit in a comment. Prompts will be answered with a fic at least two sentences long, if not longer.
and now, the Twitter-side fills )

Has it seriously been a year since the Allpocalypse? Damn, son.
I've officially gotten [personal profile] quinby into Warehouse 13, and I think it's going to bear fruit come the next app cycle. :D :D :D
Meanwhile, belated Fic Friday! Unofficial theme of horses.
because I was erring on the side of lazy yesterday )

Or: Guess Who Fell Behind Again. One-episode-back Once Upon a Time spoilers under the cut.
so that may be one of my favorites so far this season. )

This crossover was the best idea ever. Even though it gives me all the feels (soundtrack included - and yes, of course it has a soundtrack). Relatedly: Would anyone be interested in betaing a Cold Case/Warehouse 13 crossover when I've got it done? My usual W13 beta doesn't know Cold Case well enough to carry the weight, so. (I also need to figure out how to share said soundtrack.)
Venturing into Freelance Land of late; it's slow going at the moment, but I did get a nibble yesterday. Oddly, I'm finding it easier than regular job-hunting; go figure.
Meanwhile, Fic Friday!
small but awesome set, this week )
minkhollow: (two generations of win)
HEY GUYS, I FOUND NEMO. Who would've thought a clownfish would cause all this trouble? (Alternately: NOBODY IS SNOWING ON US.)
Short version: I'm really, really glad I found that snow shovel at CVS yesterday. We're gonna need to dig out the car.
Meanwhile, Fic Friday!
so what if I'm posting it on Saturday )
minkhollow: (end *all* the worlds?)
Achievement unlocked: Freelance profile! It still needs some sprucing up, but it's a step, and one I've been meaning to take for a while now. That'll help ease up some internal stress (largely my own).
We took an overnight vacation at the beginning of the week. It was great and we should do it again sometime... not in the middle of a winter storm, though. That part got old fast.
Meanwhile, Fic Friday! If anyone wants to leave a prompt here as well, go for it.
prompt partyyyy )
More as it develops!
minkhollow: (end *all* the worlds?)
My computer seems to've come down with the Toshiba Cooling Warning Plague. I think I sorted out the worst of the problem (at least, I can do my daily business without Becks crying wolf once a minute), but it's seriously annoying.
Also, a PSA on Quinn's behalf: Anyone out there know much about the pros/cons of IUDs as birth control?
Meanwhile, Fic Friday! Leave prompts here too if you want.
the Twitter set )
minkhollow: W13: Claudia playing guitar (doesn't remind us of musetta's waltz)
Not much to report this week. (Though I am considering finally writing the Cold Case/W13 crossover that's kicking around my head. If I do... it'll rip my heart out, just like Cold Case does. Right in the feels, every time.)
Meanwhile, Fic Friday!
less than last time, but )
Also, if anyone wants to leave a shortfic prompt here, go for it.

So. Um. Caught up on Once Upon a Time.
The question I have shouldn't be completely spoilery, but discussion of it probably will be; ware comments if you're not caught up.

Does that count as fridging? I'm going with yes. (I'm also sticking my fingers in my ears and going LA LA LA NOPE, but that's another story.)
minkhollow: (live long and prosper)
Note to self: Fresh asparagus is amazeballs, not to mention an easy quick lunch to make once you do the bit with the rinsing and the breaking the stems. Might be worth keeping in mind. (For those wondering: Olive oil, dried garlic, cooking it up took two or three minutes, and then I put cheese on top. OM NOM NOM.)
--oh hey, while I'm here: Any US types know much about getting into freelancing? (Editing/proofreading, preferably.)
Meanwhile, Fic Friday!
allllll the Fic Friday this week! )
minkhollow: (here at the end of all things)
Now that [community profile] fandom_stocking's live, I can share what I wrote for it! I only managed a couple things; I think the amount I ended up writing for Yuletide fried my brain a little. But I wrote these:

When we're out of town (Once Upon a Time, G), in which Ruby and Belle plan a road trip, just in case they can ever actually take it.

The Business of Second Chances (Warehouse 13/Science RPF, G), in which Mrs. Frederic presents Alan Turing with a third option. (I don't generally do RPF at all, but the person's notes said they like Alan Turing in any setting, and... my brain wouldn't let it go. XD)

(And unrelated, but speaking of things my brain won't let go of: Will Always Find, also known as the Snow And Red Are Detectives AU. IT IS SO MUCH FUN and I'm plotting things with [personal profile] ashen_key for the first time in years and I know Who Done It now.)
minkhollow: (end *all* the worlds?)
You know what this is?


MULTIFANDOM AU DRABBLE MEME


It's awesome, is what it is.
(I may have already written an OUaT detectives AU. I may be sorely tempted to continue that AU.)
minkhollow: W13: Rebecca/Jack snogging in the car (our love is a love'll not fade away)
Happy new year, everybody. And now, YULETIDE REVEALS. This year I wrote:

Equus ferus malus (Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog), my assignment and exactly my favorite kind of fic to do: Working from scraps! My recip asked for Bad Horse backstory, and this is what came forth. (Annnnnd now I can go read "Equus malus" because apparently there's only one thing to call Bad Horse fic. XD)

A Word to the Wise (Warehouse 13), in which Rebecca and Jack investigate a mail deluge and Privilege Is Discussed. As best as you can discuss privilege in 1960, at least.

The Tragedy of Oswald, Prince of Volinar (Villains By Necessity); I had grand plans for a VBN treat, but what really wanted to be written was That Time Cata And Sam Mocked Not!Hamlet. ([personal profile] ceitfianna, I believe you can call in an 'I guessed it!' fic request.)

Time is the healer (but oh how it flies) (Warehouse 13), in which Claudia decides to treat HG like a grieving human being for a change rather than let her stew in her own juices.

Many, many thanks to [archiveofourown.org profile] wyomingnot for "Whistler's Coda"! It was wonderful.
Commentaries on my fics, as is tradition, will go up on [personal profile] afewsmallrepairs just as soon as I get around to posting them.
minkhollow: (here at the end of all things)
Front-half-of-the-alphabet Yuletide recs, this time!
in which there are many good things )
Aaaaand that's all, unless and until I poke at Madness!
minkhollow: (two generations of win)
It is YULETIDE REC TIME, people! Starting from the back of the alphabet because that gets me to Warehouse 13 faster.
(As for things I wrote: Four out of four recips very happy with their stories. Which makes me especially happy because - that awkward moment when stories go live and you see someone treated your recip with something very close to what you wrote them. Not that I blame the other writer; if it hadn't been my assignment I would've tackled it too. XD)
anyway, recs! )
minkhollow: Robert Redford pointing, from Sneakers (sometimes i don't understand myself)
CHECK OUT THIS AWESOMENESS, YOU GUYS.

Whistler's Coda, in which Whistler and Liz are the best people ever.

Also, the Standard Yuletide Challenge stands: Guess what I wrote and I'll write you a thing! I have four stories up this year, in three different fandoms.
minkhollow: (what is this i don't even)
I don't really have much to say about Friday, other than: There are several discussions that bear having. Can we, I dunno, have them now and not place all the blame on one factor or another?
Meanwhile, Yuletides-past meme! (Current: Assignment's posted; one potential treat is looking more and more like an NYR every day [I like what I want to tell but I think I've framed it wrong]; another is almost to the minimum and I need to get off my arse; haven't claimed any pinch hits but I've saved a couple.)
link *all* the fic? )
