First, a thank you
I love to write. I work to make money to live and eat and all that, but I write because I can't not write. I post my stories here because this is a wonderful place to play, to explore and to share ideas with people who write about the same odd things that I find so enjoyable. Thank you for writing too. Thank you a lot because if you hadn't written - and a lot of it - there would be no fanfiction site for me to play on. Thanks to the people who host it - and thanks to the many myriad of creative efforts that inspire us all to play here.
Ratings warning: If you suddenly have trouble finding a story of mine, the rating probably just went up to M. If you use the "all" ratings filter when searching stories, that won't be a problem.
Incomplete-ness Warning: Unless I actually put 'complete' into the description, it isn't. Mostly I don't finish stories - my life is a work in progress and my "art" reflects that. If you really want to know "what happens next" tell me.
Feedback = motivation! With respect to specific stories: the next two chapters of Tomb Lord's Apprentice are currently being beta'd (really tough to write as well as I needed to - tragedy ahead). Next chapter of A Fate Shaped by Magic is also in process - I will probably finish that part of that saga (it hits a natural pause point) and go to another "story" of it.
Misc warning: Not enough Paranoia game-fic to make a section? Surely Friend Computer is plotting someone's summary execution for that. Although I have to admit, while gaming it might be playfully insanely fun, writing it is more quietly tragic.
I do give Feedback! - but only if I finish the chapter: If I don't like it, I usually don't get past the first three sentences (literally true!). Yes, I'm one of those people who walk out of movies, who leave books unfinished, who read the headlines and a paragraph and then don't turn to page E6. That being said, I do usually critique; I will tell you if I like something, and I will tell you what isn't working.
I found Gamefic by accident Once upon a time my sweetie started DMing an RPG campaign based on the Morrowind (Elder Scrolls III) game. Complete with screenshots, and political schemes and I fell totally in love with the world. I eventually tried playing the computer game (sad face) It's not as fun as a live RPG, (and I'm about ready to go into GOD mode to get the enchanting to actually work) so ... In order to make it more fun I do screenshots and come up with captions for them, including the ongoing adventures of a semi-tame kagouti named Matilda (mostly in my head, I really need to write it) and a regularly summoned bonewalker who likes getting his head rubbed. I'm open to suggestions for the name of the bonewalker.
Ongoing story problems: I'm lazy, busy and easily distracted (work, school, work [yes, 2 jobs, sleep, life and dogs [not necessarily in that order]). As I mentioned above, unless a story is listed as complete in the description, it probably isn't and may never be. Between school, work, dogs and life I update ... uh ... well sometimes I update.
Story Challenge #1 (to Fellow Writers of Morrowind fic)
I like to write Morrowind fanfic. So I've started a Morrowind story challenge thread. You can find it here:
Story Challenge #2 (to anyone who writes in a fandom that I've written in)
Write something with me! Let's alternate chapters somehow. Chapter tag!
Screwball story ideas that I really have to put somewhere to remember them/AKA the plot bunny farm:
Harry Potter/Morrowind Crossover, because Slytherin is really just another name for Telvanni
Jem-verse story on the Space Cadets and/or the Leatherettes (remember the "other bands" in the Battle of the Bands?) because ... well because I did one on the Limp Lizards with not much to go on and there is even less to go on with these two bands so lots of room for creativity
Morrowind story about sload. Because really, slugs are more interesting than you might think. And these guys get so much bad press that it can't possibly be accurate
Cliff racers with corpus. Giant twisted monstrous slamming one oversize oozing clawed "wing" after another as it struggles after the heroine (who of course is running backwards, trips and somehow can't get up and has to scrabble backwards) then add in a dose of Japanese anime.
More Paranoia fic. I'd like to do more to explore the various mutations and secret societies. I'm actually kind of surprised that now - looking for it - I pretty much can't find any Paranoia fanfic.
Fanfic rant. This rant takes place in Morrowind
I admit I am my own best fan. My character is the first reason I write the story. She's the LAST reason anyone would start to read it. People read fanfic for the characters in the books, and gamefic to look for the NPCs. For gods sakes make them interesting! Consider Morrowind (my fic of choice): Fargoth has got to be one of the most annoying characters in the entire game - was he dropped on his head too many times as a small child? Would a restore intelligence potion help him? What is the deal with Hrisskar flat-foot being such a jerk to Fargoth? Is it because Fargoth is gay and Hrisskar is not? Or is it because of a sujamma-induced night of passion that Fargoth doesn't really remember, and Hrisskar can't seem to forget? For that matter what kind of name is Hrisskar flat-foot for a Nord, anyway? Was he raised by Kajiit? By Argonians? On the run from Skyrim? What is the deal with Socucius Ergalla always being in his office? Is he avoiding his shrewish wife and five kids? Having an affair with Adraria Vandacia? How come he writes everything down? It is that he's seriously OCD? Or is he compensating for the early stages of Alzheimer's dementia?
You start off in Seyda Neen; this is the passageway for ALL the trade between Morrowind and the rest of the Empire. Think of the opportunities for intrigue and corruption. Think: "East Empire Trading Company" does that ring a bell?!?: (in the immortal words of "Handy" from The Tic READ A BOOK). Think the British Empire and the history of the East India Trading company. Compare the occupation of Morrowind, and the religious conflicts it generates to the English occupation of India. Unlike Ghandi, dunmer don't take well to pacifism. And some (especially house Telvanni) lay plans in terms of decades or longer.
Rant over ... sort of ... back to trivia
Dogs or Cats: Yes! And as a result of having a multicultural house (so to speak) I now have dogs that try to purr and cats that sniff ... fellow critters' behinds with the intensity of a puppy (if you only own cats: trust me, it's a whole other thing). I have not yet tried to integrate a ferret.
Favorite drinks: Vanilla coffee with a shot of espresso, diet root beer and a shot of fake vanilla creamer, diet hot chocolate with a shot of vanilla rum (are you seeing a pattern here?)
Favorite Movies: Speed Racer, Congo, Demolition Man, Fast Five, King Kong (the Peter Jackson one [Andy Serkis is a God!]), Avengers and the super 48 frame 3D versions of The Hobbit; it's not a movie, it's looking through a window to an alternate universe.
Favorite commentary versions: Yes - if you haven't tried a commentary version, or haven't found a good one - you don't know what you are missing (well, duh, of course you don't - what I mean is try one!). "War Games" episode of Firefly. Now tied with Joss' commentary version of Avengers. Second place is the commentary version of Pitch Black, because that is where I learned that Vin Diesel is actually adorable. Also fun is the commentary version of "Tropic Thunder"; when in the movie Robert Downy jr. says he stays in character till the end of the commentary - omigod he's not kidding. Unfortunately Ben Stiller is revealed as a petty butthead; but such is life. For that matter, I recently got the DVDs of Jem and the Holograms, and Christy Marx does a pretty good commentary as well (several of them).
Favorite Books: One kitten is not too many (children's story), Holly and Ivy (children's Christmas story), & Hero with a thousand faces by Joseph Campbell (originally read it for study, now I revisit it occasionally for pleasure).
Currently Reading: Psychotherapy of the borderline adult (for school/clinicals) and Evolving Psychosis (for a paper I'm writing).
