Trello is making stuff happen! Like actually doing these posts that have been on the 'to do list' for ever. Right now I wanted to show off these amazing fic banners the very talented [livejournal.com profile] megan_moonlight made for me as a Christmas gift like... the previous Christmas I think. Uh, so I may be a little late in showing them off but still, LOOK AT THE SHINY!! And clicking on the banner will take you to the fic in question on AO3 in case you're intrigued enough to want to read the story...

[livejournal.com profile] lewis_challenge is celebrating its 20th challenge with one that focuses on those much beloved fandom tropes, clichés and kinks. You know the ones: university!AU, huddling for warmth, vampires, blind dates, angry sex, truth or dare and on and on the list goes!

Sign-ups close 15th of March, all types of fanworks are accepted and importantly there is no minimum output limits! You can either choose your own tropes/clichés or go for a Lucky Dip and have a set of 3 randomly assigned to you!

Back in England, been chilling and recovering from the travelling and the 'holiday'. Perfect time to do my yearly Fic Round-Up, though the offerings are a bit paltry this year...

Title: Ghost Man
Author: Mistress Kat / [livejournal.com profile] kat_lair
Fandom: Lewis
Pairing: Pre-Hathaway/Lewis
Genre: Dragon!AU, case fic
Rating: R
Warnings: Fairly graphic descriptions of violence and threat of violence (including implied sexual violence)
Word count: 11,438
Disclaimer: Not mine, just playing.

Summary: “Do you see now?” the man asks.There’s spittle on his chin and he smells like someone who has spent last week drinking instead of showering but his eye are surprisingly clear and corn-flower blue. “Now that you have it, can you see?”

Author notes: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] lewis_challenge Summer Challenge 2014, this is the next instalment of ‘Dream of Dragons’ ‘verse, the previous parts of which can be found via my LJ Fic Masterlist or via AO3. I promise this will make more sense if you read those first. The title is a translation of Cantonese term ‘Gwai Lo’, used in Hong Kong to refer to pale skinned Northern Europeans, derogatory at one time but not considered so any more (or so the Internet tells me…). Please see the end for a further note re language. Finally, many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] thesmallhobbit for an excellent and thorough last minute beta without which many a preposition would be wrong.


Ghost Man (Part 1) )


Continue to Part 2.

So look at that, I've (almost) finished my Lewis Summer Challenge fic, all three days before my posting date. Because I'm special. It's ~11k and the next instalment in the Dream of Dragons series.

And this is the part where I beg for someone to please go through the fic for any spelling and grammar boo-boos. Pretty, pretty please? Anyone?

I'm mostly packed and largely unprepared but I have finished all the work I can and tomorrow morning I'm off! First to a conference and then to sunny Italy, hurrah!

Final thing before that, I wanted to pimp the by now traditional Lewis Summer Challenge we're running again over at [livejournal.com profile] lewis_challenge - do come and join us and do pimp it widely! Click on the graph for sign-ups and more details.

I have marked 15 essays today. I want to cry. The two are causally correlated.

***

In other news, I have finally bought a new laptop. And by that I mean, the same laptop I have now except the newer version. It should be here soon. Yes, it was emotionally painful.

However, I am now lusting after a tablet. It must be 10inch because I need to use it for work stuff but otherwise I'm open for recommendations. Oh, and I'd ideally not use more than ~£300 on it.

***

I continue to be in love with Lewis fandom! Back in February I left a prompt about Hathaway going on a series of bad dates and then, two months later, two separate but equally awesome fics about that appeared as a complete surprise. Both are excellent stories with great characterisation and oodles of romance and jealousy and pining and oh my heart! Run, don't walk, to read: Not Quite According To Plan by [livejournal.com profile] fortesomniare and The Unfortunate State of My Dates by [livejournal.com profile] wendymr and [livejournal.com profile] paperscribe. <3

Here are a couple of things gathered via flist that I wanted to share:

  • This Is My Body - a video with some important messages, most universal, although some with US-centric slant as that's where the vid originates from (triggery for sexual harassment/offending and health issues). Because for those of us on the Northern Hemisphere, how many magazine articles and comments have you already seen/received about getting your body 'swimsuit ready'? And really, that's just the tip of the iceberg as you all know.




***

And because I wanted to leave you with something light-hearted and silly after that...



***

Right, as you were. I'm going to go get some food now and watch 2h of American sit-coms.
