butterflydreaming: "Cris", in blocks with a blinking cat (Default)
Ten years ago this month, I shared my first story on the internet. I had only been online for a few months. My very first fanfiction was "The Universe is Resting in My Arms." I don't know the precise date of posting, because FF.net took it down for being a songfic, which is against the TOS. (Nina Gordon's "Tonight and the Rest of My Life.")

Weirdly, they did it something like 8 years after it had been posted and shortly after I found out that it was listed as an example of songfic on TVtropes.org. The dead link is still there.

There is a rather elegant Cardcaptor Sakura version of this in The Universe is Resting in My Arms. The lyrics flow almost seamlessly into the story — this troper did not realise it was a songfic until seeing them quoted in one hit at the end.

I wish I knew who added that.

I do, however, have the December 6, 2003 date for "Indian Summer, Blackthorn Winter." That's ten years ago as of tomorrow.

butterflydreaming: The Japanese character for "dreams" written on a mug (Dreams)
Well, time to see if the fandom is receptive to kaiju-centric, poetic fic.

Title: Bee Dance
Link: On Archive of Our Own. There is a typo (missing/extra word that I have to find again)
Fandom: Pacific Rim
Length: 3200+ words
Summary: The kaiju were not "great beasts" following a hunting-and-gathering instinct. They were an invading army following orders. Armies are made of soldiers.

Otachi was going in to battle, she had an unborn child growing inside her, and she still had a connection to a foreign mind somewhere in the new world.

Here's a sample )

I think this fic should be pretty accessible without having seen the movie, but it is one great big spoiler. If you don't care and you want to read it, let me know if you can follow without the movie context. This is primarily the POV of one of the movie's monster antagonists.

Also, here is a 20 minute .wav file of me reading it aloud. Since I read aloud at final draft, I may as well record it! But if I'm going to keep sharing the recordings, I need to figure out a process.

Fanfiction for this serial. I don't think it's necessary to know the canon, but I've been enjoying the read. Spoilers for the whole thing, some angel angst. As is typical for me, all about minor characters, some of whom are already dead according to the canon.
Length: a bunch of words (around 1.6K)
Genre: 100% romance
Rating: PG

Some notes regarding forms of address, etc. Where I natter on. )

Say... yes )

Tsukimine Shrine Challenge
Topic: Change of Pace
Rating: PG…  Length: a little over 1,000

“Special requirements: Everybody needs a break once in a while. Or at the very least, a change of scenery. Take your favorite character(s) out for a spin in an entirely new place - a setting they wouldn't normally find themselves in. This could mean a well-deserved vacation, or even an all-out AU if you'd like. The beach, the countryside, the moon...anything's game.”
