Friending Policy

Er, I've never really seen the point to having a "friending policy," but apparently it's the done thing these days, and it's been driven home to me lately what incredibly different thoughts people often have about friending on LJ/IJ/DW. So, here it is:

1. If you want to friend me, for whatever reason, go for it.
2. I may or may not friend you back for any number of reasons. If I don't friend you back, it could be one of these reasons:
a. I have no idea who you are.
b. We don't appear to have many (or any) interests in common.
c. I meant to and forgot.
3. People use the friending feature loads of different ways with all sorts of different sets of assumptions about what it means to "friend" someone. Here is my only assumption about friending: there is some interest in reading what the person writes on their LJ/IJ/DW with some regularity, which may or may not have anything to do with being friends in the more usual sense of the word. Actual friendship develops and becomes evident through interacting on each other's journals or in communities/asylums or even (gasp) offline.
4. This is not a strictly fandom journal. I've been on LJ longer than I've been in fandom, and while the opposite is true for IJ and Dw, since I crosspost almost everything to both of them, they both have the same mix of topics including fandom stuff, school stuff, relgious stuff, political stuff, dance-related stuff, and just general RL stuff. The balance of what gets the most screen space can shift without warning. Which fandom has grabbed center stage similarly shifts without warning, often even to me.
5. I don't flock much. When I do, though, I tend to filter it, because my flist is so eclectic. I tend to make it clear in the subject line what filter I'm using. If you find yourself reading posts that are filtered to a particular set of interests you're uninterested in or uncomfortable with, let me know and I'll take you off. That said, back to the start of this point: I don't flock much.

Also, this is not a comment to be added post. In fact, I'm turning comments off, because it seems whatever my "top post" is inevitably gets tons of spam comments, frequently in languages I don't speak.

Fic Master List

So, what I had up here before was never really intended as a master list, and it's been pointed out to me that it's a pain in the neck needing to know which year something was written to find it on the year-end fic meme thing. Thus, here is a master list sorted by fandom.

Edited April 2, 2013 to add that this list hasn't been updated in ages. I think at this point the central location where all my writing should be findable by now is An Archive of Our Own.

An end of an era

So, apparently the new TOS, which like most TOS caused my eyes to cross attempting to read it, prohibits LGBTQ content. (The TOS I had to "agree" to in order to post this. I decided that agreement fell under the heading of being an act of protest, largely like this post.)

Considering I'm queer and so is lots of my fic, I imagine this journal will eventually be deleted.

I doubt anyone is likely to notice, considering I'm never here anymore. I'm barely on Dreamwidth or Tumblr these days, though I do track various fandom communities and challenges on them. (Looks like the Dean/Cas Big Bang jumped ship to Tumblr just in time, come to think of it. They definitely have sufficient readership to get noticed!) At any rate, I've been totally ignoring the annual charge to my credit card to keep all the shiny icons and mood theme. It shows up. I wince and wonder why I didn't cancel it, and I forget all about it.

Well, I'm not going to delete this LJ for 6A, but I sure as shit am going to stop paying for this nonsense. I think it usually renews in July, which it no longer will.

ETA: Oops. Guess I already did that. I'm now tempted to start uploading daily queer content of some kind instead. I've got enough in my back catalogue ...

[FIC] Somehow, Somewhere, Someway (Supernatural, Charlie Bradbury/Jo Harvelle, rated Teen)


Title: Somehow, Somewhere, Someway
Author: firefly124
Pairing(s): Charlie/Jo, past Jo/Dean, mentions of Dean/Cas
Rating: Teen
Wordcount: 11770
Summary: Jo’s about had it with their crappy dorm and so has Charlie. When Gabriel Novak’s Fortune 500 company offers off-campus housing and a free ride for one year to any team of two people who can successfully complete a set of challenges, she’s all for it. There’s just a couple of problems. The challenges are weird, and the stress of trying to complete them in the middle of finals is triggering some really horrifying dreams, not just for her but Charlie too. Horrifying dreams that seem entirely too real, but couldn’t possibly be. Could they?
Warnings/Kinks: canon-compliant through 10x23 including canon character deaths, fix-it fic

Fic on AO3:
A/N: Please go see isis_mcgee's awesome art post and give her some love. THank you, isis_mcgee for making such awesome art for this fic! Huge thanks, also, to laiksmarei for beta-reading despite being in the midst of Major Life Stuff (and sick). You rock, woman.

popping in after ages to signal boost about fic poaching

Hi there. Yes, I'm still around. Just mostly on Tumblr these days. Not a conscious choice, just sort of happened.

The reason I'm clumsily posting this from my phone is that it seems that has been poaching fanfiction from AO3. I found a handful of my work on there a well as a friend's. If you post fic to AO3 (or elsewhere, as they may be scraping other sites too), you may want too do an author search.

Their complaint/takedown process looks pretty cumbersome. I'm hoping the OTW will help since it appears this site is abusing their archive.

Just an fyi, I guess.

Title: Brewing Up Trouble
Author: halfshellvenus
Fandom: House M.D.
Characters: House, Wilson (Gen)
Rating: PG
Summary: Roomates, rogues… rivals.
Why you should go read it: The snark is just made of awesome, and really, that is what makes House fandom fun is the snark. [Disclaimer: I had requested this on a prompt-offer post with the prompt "House, Wilson, and bad coffee." (I'm looking at you for that inspiration, Dunkin' Donuts.) So I might be slightly biased, but it really is awesome, so go have a read and a smile. :-)]
