Fic: Don't Tickle the Dragon
Author: brokenhighways
Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Pairing: J2
Summary: If there’s one thing that Jensen never wants to hear about again in his life, it’s dragons. It sounds bizarre but that’s what happens when you’re in love with an eccentric archaeologist who has a penchant for rambling about dragons when he’s drunk. And when he’s sober. And … well, at any given time of the day. However, Jensen finds himself becoming enamoured when Jared’s given a dragon egg to look after and their lives change drastically.

My ramblings: Thanks to my lovely author for providing the best inspiration and for being patient with me. I know there should be more dragons for this b/c brokenhighways put so many cool ones in the story, but alas, RL and the stupid crashing GIMP were plotting against me. Buuut the fic is super cute and fun so make sure to check that out. You'll definitely get your dragon fix there. :D

Story: Kindred: The D'vine Prophecy
Author: reggie11

My 2nd and last entry for SPN RBB this year. A million and fifty thanks to reggie11 for writing such a cool, imaginative and happy-making fic despite all the obstacles life has seemed intent on throwing at her. She worked so so hard to finish this thing, and to have it turn out so beautifully after all she had to deal with is super amazing to me. There are no words for how much you rock, my dear. I wish I'd had time to give you all the art in the world because your story is packed with such fun and inspiring imagery! Maybe next time. ;)

Thanks also to the mods for running this challenge, and for being so accommodating and quick to respond when we needed more time. You guys are fabulous!

I had the wonderful fortune of previewing walking_tornado's J2 crackfic Holding His Own yesterday and it made my bad day all kinds of better! It had me cracking up and I think I died for a minute about halfway through.

WT's summary: An unexpected visit results in a curse on Jensen's sex toys.


It's a sequel to another fic The Garden Gnome, which is only 5k and a pretty fun read too if you wanna get more context, but imo still makes sense on its own. Make sure to heed the warnings, though! Awesome as it is, there are potential triggers.

Heeey, so. Who has a twitter? I've been told that's where all the happenings are happening and I'm tired of missing all the J2 stuff, so I reactivated my abandoned one. It's still all new to me but if anyone's over there and doesn't mind letting me play voyeur while I figure stuff out, that'd be nifty. My twitter handle is dollarformyname, same as always.

Story: The Invasion

SPACE TENTACLES. \o/ Warning for dead people, but it's not too gross or anything. One image might be slightly spoilery for the fic, so you should probably check that out first.

Title: Past Today
Fandom: Dark Angel
Author: dollarformyname
Artist: amberdreams
Beta: 2blueshoes
Cheerleader: chiiyo86
Characters: Alec, Ben
Rating: R
Warnings: "Off-screen" major character deaths, violence, other deaths of the OC variety.
Timeline: Takes place about five years after Freak Nation.
Words: ~28.5k
Summary: Terminal City was abandoned after an attack five years ago, survivors scattered to fend for themselves. Alec's been on his own for a while now, trying to forget what he lost, but then Ben shows up to make him remember in all the wrong ways. After an armed robbery and a city-wide manhunt that results in high-speed chases, gunshot wounds, more dead transgenics, and a hostage situation or two, Alec tracks Ben down to thank him properly.

A/N: Written for the darkangel_bb 2014. Unending gratitude to my team of awesome helpers/collaborators and detailed notes can be found at the end of the fic.

I've got 2 Dark Angel fics I'm trying to get ready for the Dark Angel Big Bang. One is Alec & Ben gen (13k and counting and the art amberdreams has shown me so far is AMAZING and my fic is NOT WORTHY, please help) and the other is Alec/Max (8k and counting). They're not completely done but I could use a beta to come in and straighten out what I do have down. Or anyone willing to take a quick look and help me figure out a few of the things that have me stuck in a couple scenes. And maybe a drill sergeant to kick me in the ass daily and be like just WRITE that shit and edit it later. XD

I need to have both fics done by around Christmas time.

I'd be eternally grateful for any help anyone can offer! I'm also totally willing to return the favor for whatever fandom. Just ask and I'll let you know how familiar I am with it.

Oh, I guess I should also post the summaries:

Hold On. Alec/Max. In the wake of an attack on Terminal City, Alec and Max find themselves on the run together while they wait for word on the rest of their people.

Past Today. Alec & Ben. Terminal City was abandoned after an attack five years ago, survivors scattered to fend for themselves. Alec's been on his own for a while now, trying to forget what he lost, but then Ben shows up to make him remember in all the wrong ways. After an armed robbery and a city-wide manhunt that results in high-speed chases, gunshot wounds, more dead transgenics, and a hostage situation or two, Alec tracks Ben down to thank him properly.

There might be a theme here. :/

All set! Thanks, guys!

In the spirit of trying to kick my muse in the butt, I went through my WIP folder to organize and clean stuff out, and found a whole bunch of fic-type miscellany that I will probably never get around to expanding on/finishing. Packrat that I am, actually pushing the delete button has proven painful, so I've decided some of them might work all right as standalone ficlets. For the sake of not spamming my f-list I'll just do a couple at a time.

So! Have some randomness that needed to be purged from my brain (and my hard drive).

SPN/DA. Sam POV. Alec is not a hitchhiking apparition. Sam picks him up.Collapse )


SPN. Jess POV. She"ll survive the fire. She"ll wish she hadn"t.Collapse )

Story: The Treadmill
Author: amberdreams
My ramblings: Whee! This story has a certain vibe to it that I really really love, and SO MANY elements that I absolutely adore. I'd try to explain but my brain is currently cooking with fever and I don't want to spoil anything. Just go read it. It's positively awesome! I wish I could've managed more art, and I ALMOST did, but said fever and illness got the better of me before I reached the finish line. I'll get it done, though! Because I already started it. It'll just have to be late.

Many thanks to amberdreams for being patient and totally cool as a cucumber about everything. You are truly a saint, and it's been FABULOUS getting to know you! ♥ (And stay tuned as we trade author/artist places for the darkangel_bb in December! \o/)
