Snurched from izhilza and astrogirl2 on lj. (in toto from astro, I even stole her commentary about it!) Also, fanfic writing, I miss you! I want to come back!

Here's kind of a nifty fic meme:

I have 59 works archived at AO3. Pick a number from 1 (the most recent) to 59 (the first thing I posted there), and I'll tell you three things I currently like about it.

Although it strikes me that this could get somewhat embarrassing, either because I might find myself going, "But I hate this story now! Thanks for reminding me!" or because it's a little awkward to go trumpeting your own awesome. But, hey, we'll see!

I'm copying this from [personal profile] penknife:

Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you between one and three sentences from that story. (1 to 3 sentences is a rough estimate).
aurora_novarum: (Daniel books writing)
Ooh, writing meme! I can never resist these...to do or to visit at other people's.

Comment with a story I've written, and I will tell you something I knew, learned, or wondered about while writing it that didn't make it onto the page.

Gakked from [livejournal.com profile] kalquessa.

You can find all my fic listed here.

Because icons are my new pretty shiny object, I couldn't resist when [livejournal.com profile] kalquessa posted this meme. I changed favorite fandom to favorite character and ship to "Duo" because...I'm such a gen single fandom gal. :-D (I couldn't figure out a way to stick in my weight lifting Daniel one too, so he gets the entry icon award, snerk).

Flist, you've been holding out on me!

Why did no one tell me about [livejournal.com profile] synecdochic's awesome teamy goodness story about a Training Scenario/Wargames fun called The Only Winning Move. I *love* training day scenario fics. Absolutely adore! You know how people have AMTDI kinks? This is one of my OTP teamy goodness kink. And one of my favorite [livejournal.com profile] redbyrd_sgfic's fics, Training Exercises was his/her inspiration.

I got so excited I had to rec it right away to [livejournal.com profile] stargateficrec.


And because I'm still waiting for the dishwasher repairman, and I've seen this on my flist three four,five times already.

Sometimes it's ok to pimp yourself out. Post a list of your top five fic-favorites you've written, regardless of fandom or the reason you love them. This isn't about the BEST things you've written, but what you LOVE most. Then tag five other people to do the same.

Interesting, my mood right now seems to be veering towards onbase/offduty. I'm sure it's a phase. :-)

ETA: Hey, dishwasher guy came, and he agrees this fits under the warranty! Yay. I'll be getting a new dishwasher tub! (Not sure how I get a new tub but still have all the old stuff, but...I'll let Sears figure out those details so long as my floor doesn't leak and the machine works.) I have hot water, running toilet, and now answers about my dishwasher. Now I can finally go to work!

ETA2: And btw, I promise to stop spamming your flist now.

Gakked from my flist. My list of stories is here...um, I think it's up to date.

Name a character that you know I write or have written, and I'll tell you:

a. What initially prompted me to like the character enough to write about him/her.
b. One of his/her best traits.
c. One of his/her worst traits.
d. How easy/difficult I find it to write the character.
e. The story/thread/chapter/post/paragraph/tag/phrase where I feel that I truly captured the character.
f. My plans (if any) to write the character in the near future.

Copying from so many on my flist...

Ideas. Where the hell do they come from? Can you make those little fuckers show up?
Wild horse-bunnies. When a story just gets pulled right out of you. Do you get them?
Writer's block. Have you been scourged?
Clean up duty. Do you like editing?
The ending. Is it hard for you to find the ending?
The title. Where do you get yours? Do you have yours when you start the story?
Plot. If you plot out your stories first, raise your hand.
POV. How do you choose your POV for a scene? For a story?
Challenge. Do you like them? Do they inspire you?
Sex. Do you like writing sex?

ETA: All fic links have been edited to Dreamwidth entries.

2007 was my usual rec'cing, ficcing, and metaing. Had health issues through the spring and summer which curtailed, but did not stop, my fannishness. (Considering I wrote 13 stories!!!...perhaps "curtailed" is not a good word; "enabled" may be more apt). Did two ficathons, [livejournal.com profile] sd_ficathon (Sam and Daniel goodness YAY!) and the [livejournal.com profile] sg1teamficathon, which was a lot of fun to do, especially since that ficathon was one of the things that inspired me to join lj (aren't you all sorry, heh).

I've continued my work in the Stargate Wiki, helping them finish the final transcripts for Season Ten, and continued towards my goal to have every planet in the SG-1 universe have an article finished. I'm quite anal about it. Plus, with the wonderful assistance of [livejournal.com profile] suzannemarie, I started doing dvd commentary recaps at the [livejournal.com profile] sg1_solutions lj site. We're almost done Season Ten (I know I've got to get back to it), and then we'll go back where we left off in Season 4 and...wherever suzanne was in her masochistic Gary Jones saga.

I also got involved in helping start the [livejournal.com profile] redial_the_gate which has turned into an amazing community of squee for fans of ship/slash/gen. The recaps are gen oriented, but the meta, chats and fandom works posted are for all kinds. I love seeing the different perspectives of people watching this same show. We never dreamed when this comm started it would take off like that. And considering most of my December posts have been some kind of pimpage for the comm...y'all are probably tired of me going on about it. :-)

I can't find the actual "fics written meme" to remember what questions they asked, so I'm just doing mini metas on the stories I've written in 2007. They're listed here in order of when written:

I'm archiving my responses to this meme in an entry so it's easier to follow (and possibly edit, heh). Some were writing meta, some were "missing scenes/tags" to the story from that character's POV. (Master List of my stories

Name any story I've written, and any character in them, canon or OC. I'll tell you three things about that character which I didn't put in the story.

If you haven't read [livejournal.com profile] eve11's Folsum Prison Blues and its sequel, you should. And then read the latest addition in her answer to me when I played a writing meme on her lj.

In fact the meme was so fun, I want to play it too (come play with me! It's Friday!):

Name any story I've written, and any character in them, canon or OC. I'll tell you three things about that character which I didn't put in the story.

I plan on posting a rec later today of three awesome fics I've been lucky enough to get a sneak peek of betaed, as soon as someone finally posts hers. ;-)

Oh, and while I'm on here, a couple of SGA canon questions (weirdly for an SG-1 fic, but...don't ask). My SGA canon knowledge comes nowhere close to my SG-1 trivial info. 1) Do we know when Carson developed the Ancient gene? On Earth or on Atlantis? 2) Lorne has the Ancient gene, but is it canon as to whether he has it naturally or from the therapy or can I play either way? 3) How did that Ancient personal shield (from S1 and S3) attach to the person?

First a meme that I gakked from [livejournal.com profile] astrogirl2.

Halloween_meme )

I also thought in the spirit of the upcoming holiday, I'd post a couple of "spooky" Fic Recs. (both are gen)

Shadow over Chatsworth by [livejournal.com profile] saffronhouse. I posted this in my last rec post, but I think it's well worth repeating. Daniel Jackson and Rodney McKay are on a road trip on Earth when their car breaks down near a Southern town with secrets. (Bwah ha ha ha)

Ghost in the Machine by [livejournal.com profile] friendshipper. One of the authors rec'ced to me in my "branching out" requests (and I'm still going through them), this story is SGA. John and Rodney trapped on a creepy world with a spooky monster and strange old man.

Huh, they're both kind of SGAish related. Maybe it's the soul-sucking vampires on Atlantis that lends itself to spooky fics.

Actually, I also wanted to rec one with Season Nine SG-1 where they're all zombies. Not spooky, but crackily hilarious, and I can't find it (of course, it would help if I remembered *who* wrote it. Grr!)

ETA: The one I was thinking of isn't available, but thanks to [livejournal.com profile] splash_the_cat's zombie fic list, I found another one I tried to find but didn't recall enough of to even search. It's actually at the [livejournal.com profile] sg1teamficathon by [livejournal.com profile] poohmusings called WWZD (you have to read all the way to the end. It's awesome! Well all the fics at this original version of the ficathon are awesome.)

And I thought of another one. You are my...Sunshine by Travelling One. Well, to her annoyance, heh, I tend to say all her stories have a "Twilight Zone" feel with their twists and moral perspectives, but "You are my Sunshine" is very horror-like in its descriptions and the creepy demented alien who's got our team.

Anyone else got some good Halloween fics to rec? Especially SG-1?

Gakked from about half of my flist by this point.

1. Comment to this post with the name of a character that I have written in fic.

2. I will comment, telling you the following:

a. What initially prompted me to like the character enough to write about him/her.
b. One of his/her best traits.
c. One of his/her worst traits.
d. How easy/difficult I find it to write the character.
e. The story/chapter/paragraph/phrase where I feel that I truly captured the character.
f. My plans (if any) to write the character in the near future.
