Oops, I forgot to watch Sleepy Hollow tonight. I thought I'd try watching it live, since I'm at the point now where I watch everything online... ah well. Guess I'll catch it tomorrow. Online. Like all my other shows. (There really aren't that many. Parks and Recreation, Sleepy Hollow, Elementary, Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Person of Interest is still on the list right now, though it's on probation.)

Speaking of that, I wrote a fic! First one finished in months and months. It was a pinch-hit fic for a gift exchange--for which I didn't actually sign up, heh. I just filled in when someone else couldn't finish their assignment.

title: Meal Plan
characters: John Reese, Harold Finch, Lionel Fusco, Joss Carter, Leon Tao, Sameen Shaw
rating/contents: G or PG at most (mild language)
summary: Five times Reese provided a meal (to someone who didn't ask).
spoilers through early season three
word count: around 2800
Thanks to [ profile] sabaceanbabe for beta-reading.

I wrote a thing. A last-minute thing. It's a gift fic for eyesofwitt on Tumblr. (I volunteered to pinch-hit, forgetting that I had work-related stuff to do in the evening Monday. But I got it posted late last night, so it's all good.)

title: and the world will be better for this
characters: John Reese, Joss Carter, many references to Harold Finch (no pairings)
rating/contents: eh, I'm gonna say it's G-rated; there are a few (very few) bad words
summary: episode insert for 2.12. "Prisoner's Dilemma," Reese's POV
word count: around 2500
Thanks to Karen for checking this for the usual stuff

on AO3 or on

More references to Don Quixote; the title is a line from the main song in "Man of La Mancha."

Fic! I received a lovely fic in the winter gift exchange on the main Person of Interest comm. [ profile] radioshack84 wrote Black and True Blue for me. It's an episode insert fic for 1.15 "Blue Code." This story works really well at filling in the blanks for some missing time in the episode. Carter, Reese and Finch all three get 'screen time' and I'm ever so pleased about that. Go read and review!

Fic on the LJ comm or on

I wrote a fic for the exchange as well. Rondo has Finch spying on people, Taylor Carter moving with swagger and Reese throwing more tennis balls. (Or, as I told my brother, 4000+ words about Bear on a walk.)

on the LJ comm or on AO3

I'm also working to update my online bookmarks with some of the great fic we've had recently. Unfortunately, I was behind even before Yuletide, so there's a lot of ground to cover.

Okay, here's the meme about TV shows I watched (or didn't watch) in 2012: back here )

Since I only have one more fanfic I'm going to write this year--at least, that's all I have planned--here's my version of the fanfic meme. In 2012 I wrote fifteen stories in three fandoms. Person of Interest was the main fandom, but I also wrote a crossover with Doctor Who and one final Battlestar Galactica fic (a remix). This isn't counting tiny fics posted in the comments or on Tumblr. Total word count is around 71,000 75,000. That's more than the three previous years combined, I believe.

fic-writing meme, using my own categories )

My mostly-complete fic index, which you can use to find stories I wrote and then leave extravagant praise on them.

Hey, look, I wrote something! AND NOW IT'S DONE!

FINAL CHAPTER OF NOWHERE LEFT TO RUN (or start at the beginning on or on AO3 (yep, I started posting it there out of spite).

The final list of warnings (because this monster kept evolving as I wrote it): violence (shootings, fights, death of original characters), bad language, mentions of racist ideology, sex, a brief mention of suicide, and an incident of non-consensual drug use.

oh good heavens, she's going ON and ON about her own writing )

If you're on my reading list and have posted/been posting a longer fic for a fandom I like, expect me to start showing up with belated comments. (Any preferences for where I comment? AO3 or LJ?)

I'm reposting some tiny fic from Tumblr, written from requests. First up, something from BSG. I know, I was shocked at writing it as well. The prompt asked for Kara and Jean, which is like dangling catnip in front of a cat. Kara Thrace and Jean Barolay, bonding )

Person of Interest, Carter POV about Fusco and the other 'boys' sideways from the prompt, but oh well )

Another for PoI, Zoe Morgan interacting with Carter. this is NOT a bonding moment )

As for other stuff written lately, I posted chapter eight of "Nowhere Left to Run" just over a week ago. Currently about halfway through with chapter nine, and I need to get that finished this week. (I keep getting more ideas for what to do in chapter ten, which is great... but I sorta need to get nine done? Like, soonish? Okay, muse?)

Back in January I jokingly said that I'd like to read a multi-chapter story with Carter and Reese trying to take down the Machine. I didn't intend for me to be the person who wrote that story.

Yup, I'm talking about the infamous, interminable popcorn fic. Since it's currently around 34,000 words and we only have three weeks until season two starts, I'm starting to post now. And still writing chapters seven eight through whatever. And editing the early chapters. Yay? (Guess what I'm working on this weekend.)

title: Nowhere Left to Run
characters: John Reese, Joss Carter, Harold Finch (others will show up later)
pairings: Eventual Carter/Reese, but there's a lot of plot to get through before that happens. Canon pairings will be referenced as well.
rating: M
warnings/contents: brief violence and language, mentions of racist ideology, sex, and an incident of non-consensual drug use
summary: What happens when the Machine decides someone is a threat?
Thanks to [ profile] lizardbeth_j and [ profile] sabaceanbabe for brainstorming, encouragement, and grammar policing.

Nowhere Left to Run: prologue and chapter one

eta: only posting to for now, simply because it's easy for readers to navigate the chapters there. Anon reviews are enabled and totally awesome. (So are reviews with names attached.)

eta 2: oooookay, is glitching right now and the story isn't showing up. No recently posted stories are showing up. Hrm. I may have to post to AO3 if this continues.

eta 3: seems to be working now? *fingers crossed*

More procrastination on popcorn fic by writing drabbles; Zoe Morgan/John Reese this time. Hello, part-time ship. Though I wouldn't describe most of this as shippy. (Maybe someday I'll write happy drabbles. Right.)

fandom: Person of Interest
characters: Zoe Morgan/John Reese
rating: maaaaaybe R for sexual themes? though there's nothing explicit at all
disclaimer: these characters aren't mine

Fiddling around with backstory for Kara Stanton. Since I'm stalled on popcorn fic, I decided to turn my head!canon into some drabbles.

fandom: Person of Interest
characters: Kara Stanton ( spells Stanton's first name with a C, but the Machine spelled it with a K -- and the Machine is never wrong), passing mention of original characters and John Reese
rating: PG-13 for language, sexual content, creepiness
disclaimer: Kara Stanton doesn't belong to me. Good thing too, because she's scary.

Trying to write creepy Stanton-Reese gen fic, and not doing so well. So this is an attempt to explore Stanton's voice with someone else. Not cross-posting this anywhere.

characters: Joss Carter, Kara Stanton ( spells Stanton's first name with a C, but the Machine spelled it with a K -- and the Machine is never wrong)
spoilers: through 1.20
note: Kara refers to herself by her first name in this; she has no reason to keep the last name she used with the CIA. (Works for me, anyway. *shrug* After all, it's been two years since, y'know, spoilery stuff happened.)

700+ words back here )

Totally open to constructive criticism right now, by the way. In general, if there's something you've been dying to say about my fic, or about this ficlet in particular... Or any thoughts you have on Stanton, since she seems to be my stumbling block right now. (Maybe it's Reese, though. Or the scenario. Or meh, I hate writing.)

BSG remix reveals have been posted. I wrote The Hour Is Getting Late, a tiny fic with Tory's POV during the season three finale. Tory/Sam, PG-13.

While I think the end result is fine, I sort of wish I could ask for a do-over. It was incredibly frustrating trying to write Battlestar Galactica fanfic when my brain was wanting to focus on new show. Apparently I'm a serial fandom monogamist, and BSG is no longer in dominant position. It was only a matter of time; other than one exception, every story I've written for other fandoms was done after the BSG finale in 2009.

That made me start thinking about what factors lead to me writing fic )

*laughs* Apparently number three proves I'm just stubborn and perverse. This isn't news to me.

Written for Liz (lizardbeth_j) for the We Get Carter mini-gift exchange. She wanted Carter genfic, and mentioned liking everyone. This gave me an excuse to use Finch's POV; I haven't written him in a while.

title: Three Sides
fandom: Person of Interest
characters: Harold Finch, Joss Carter, John Reese
rating/contents: PG at most for language
description: three episode inserts, Finch's POV about Carter and Reese
beta-reader: sabaceanbabe (so glad we're sharing this fandom!)
word count: just over 1700
Note: specific spoilers for 1.11, 1.14 and 1.17. Most of the dialogue comes from those episodes.
disclaimer: these characters don't belong to me.

Quick heads-up--due to fun real-life stuff, I won't be posting the recap for Ultraviolet 1.06 until Monday. More time to catch up if you're trying to watch.

Change of topic: apparently murderous dons don't like being in unfinished fanfic; middle of the night insomnia meant that this story got finished much sooner than I expected. *yawns*

title: How Low
fandom: Person of Interest
characters: Gianni Moretti, Taylor Carter, John Reese
rating/contents: PG-13 for language, descriptions of (canon) violence and death; criminal attitudes
summary: another long afternoon in Elias's hideout
beta-reader: sabaceanbabe
Note: spoilers for 1.19 "Flesh and Blood." A few lines of dialogue come directly from the episode.

Funny to think that outspoken Carter was raising this quiet mouse. )

So I watched the promo for 1.19 and decided I'd better write Carter fic before I get traumatized by the next episode.

title: Burned
fandom: Person of Interest
characters: Joss Carter, Agent Donnelly (and lots of references to Reese)
rating/warning: PG at most (for language)
summary: another conversation about the man in the suit
Note: not beta-read, because it's just over 900 words. Spoilers for 1.18 "Identity Crisis."

'He didn't explain why.' )

Okay, so while I was wasting time on Tumblr, someone pointed out spoilers for Fringe 4.15 )

Some links to stuff (some of which I wrote):
* My recap of Ultraviolet 1.03 'Sub Judice'. It's the "Vampires want babies?!" episode.
* Poco linked to the Not my ship comment ficathon, so I looked around at the lovely short stories...
* ... and then I wrote some Faith/Wesley post-finale fic. I've never written Angel or Buffy fic before, so that was unexpected. Also, Wes is a W&H-made zombie. Oh, and Faith expresses herself colorfully, so consider this your warning.

I mentioned previously that I have an infinite capacity for not-fix-it fics. Y'all should write faster; I'm resorting to clich├ęs now (on purpose instead of by accident)... resulting in Bad Idea* shippy fic. Argh, Reese and your women everything issues.
*The bad idea being the pair; I'll let you decide about the story.

If you believe Google--and why would Google lie to me?--it's not that difficult to track someone's location using their cell phone GPS. Eeep!

title: Twist
fandom: Person of Interest
characters/pairings: Joss Carter/John Reese
rating/contents: PG; contains angry people, kissing, references to stalking surveillance
summary: Reese deals with the fall-out after Moretti's abduction (spoilers for 1.17)
word count: under 2000
thanks to sabaceanbabe for beta-reading
Note: This is all the fault of basketball and Spring break. And enablers on my f'list.

Post-episode not-fix-it fic. I have an infinite capacity for reading not-fix-it stories, so I'm waiting for more. *looks around expectantly*

belatedly added title: Break
fandom: Person of Interest
characters: John Reese, Joss Carter (gen)
rating: barely PG
summary: one last phone conversation
word count: just under 900
Note: not beta-read because it's under 1000 words. That's apparently the magic number in my mind. So let me know if you spot anything I need to correct.

Stay out of trouble. )

This has spoilers for the promo for 1.17. If you've seen the pictures or trailer already, you're good.

title: A Picture's Worth...
fandom: Person of Interest
characters: Zoe Morgan, OC (references to Zoe/John, though this is decidely gen)
rating: G or PG?
summary: Zoe gets some interesting pictures.
word count: 800
notes: 1) Not beta-read, lemme know if I missed something. 2) Now the secret is out to anyone who didn't already know: sometimes I write utterly ridiculous fic on purpose.

something you need to see 8O )

This is one of those things that's probably way more amusing to write than to read. :) Thanks for the prompt, Liz!

untitled crossover fic(let)
fandoms: Person of Interest, Doctor Who
characters: John Reese, Harold Finch, Martha Jones
rating: G
summary: Finch is secretly an alien, Martha is his doctor, Reese is clueless.
word count: under 700
prompt from Liz: I don't know much about Martha, but I should think she'd cross over with PoI pretty well since she lives in our time, and she's a doctor and she might travel to NY even w/o the Doctor around... ;)
notes: 1) Not beta-read, lemme know if I missed something. 2) Finch as a (mostly) benign alien works frighteningly well.

There were voices coming from the center of the library. )
