As you kow I'm not reading fanfics until end of Lent, but doesn't mean I can't talk about them... Well, my own. Behold, a fic meme, snagged from [livejournal.com profile] monkiainen

You can find my fics via LJ writing masterlists: Fandoms A-K, Fandoms L-N, and Fandoms O-Z
And you can also find most of them, excluding some 'verses, on AO3: MistressKat

Comment with the title of one of my fics, and a number (or two!), and I will tell you...

1. What was my inspiration for this fic? How did it come to me?
2. What’s my favorite part of the fic?
3. What’s the part of the fic I’m most proud of?
4. What part of the fic was the hardest for me to write?
5. What part of the fic am I still dissatisfied with?
6. Who’s my favorite character in the fic?
7. Were there any major decisions I made about the fic that could have made it go a whole different direction?
8. Was there anything I only learned about the fic after I had finished it? (themes, motifs, symbolism, etc)
9. Did anyone in the fic surprise me by doing anything? If so, what?
10. If I had to sum up this fic in a sentence, what would it be?
11. If I were to rewrite this fic, what would I change?
12. Did any thing about this fic’s reception surprise me?
13. What were my beta’s major comments about the first draft of this fic?
14. If I were to write a sequel to this fic, what would it be about?
15. Any other question about the fic!

Hello my good folk!

Just to remind you two things...

Porn Meme! Still open for today and tomorrow, please go join in! We've had some excellent discussions about writing sex scenes, about favourite porn actors and sites, some fic recs, some pictures, sex toy recs... Go check it out by clicking on the banner!

Porn banner mark two.jpg

Broadstairs Bacchanalia! Programme is now available and promises to be full of talks, writing exercises, vids, fandom pimps, and lots of general merriment! Taking place 11-13 of September in Broadstairs, on the Kent coast. Everyone is very welcome and please, do feel free to pimp this to your flist too! The comm is [livejournal.com profile] broadstairsbacc and by clicking on the banner you will get to the programme!


That's all for now!

As promised, I hereby present...


Porn banner mark two.jpg

The weekend is almost upon us and for those of us in the UK it'll be a long one. So, what better way to say goodbye to summer than dirty, kinky, sweaty, sweet, romantic, loving, naughty, delicious PORN? None, I say! Here's how we're gonna roll, folks!

Meme open 28/08-01/09!

If you want to post with your username you are more than welcome to, but just in case you'd feel more comfortable talking about porn anonymously, the anonymous posting is on and IP logging is off.

The Porn Meme welcomes posts covering anything and everything about porn, both fandom and non-fandom. Some suggestions:

  • porn recs: fanfics, original stories, pics, vids

  • prompts/requests: looking for a particular flavour of porn but can't find it? Maybe someone can help you. Or, really want a porny fanfic/fanart with a specific characters or kinks? Hey, maybe someone will be inspired to provide it!

  • general discussion about porn: what turns you on and what turns you off, good porn, bad porn, porn you'd like to see more of, is porn problematic or exploitative etc.

  • write porny ficlets, post porny photos, talk about porny things you'd like to do your favourite characters

Due to the topic, assume explicit NC-17 content, assume nudity, assume kinks. For anything particularly triggery, e.g. non-con, please provide a warning in comment subject-heading. However, I'm unable to police the meme 24h/day so please exercise common sense when following links or reading posts etc. Also exercise common courtesy; no mocking other people's kinks or fandom pairings etc. I will delete any comments that are rude or inappropriate in the wrong way.

Finally, please pimp the meme! Please grab the banner and invite all your flisters to join in on the porny fun.

Enjoy!

Hi guys!

Remember the PORN MEME I hosted two years ago? Anyone up for Mark 2 of that the last weekend of August (Bank Holiday weekend in the UK)?

The idea would be to run it exactly the same, welcoming posts covering anything and everything about porn, both fandom and non-fandom, with anonymous posting enabled. E.g.

  • porn recs: fanfics, original stories, pics, vids

  • prompts/requests: looking for a particular flavour of porn but can't find it? Maybe someone can help you. Or, really want a porny fanfic/fanart with a specific characters or kinks? Hey, maybe someone will be inspired to provide it!

  • general discussion about porn: what turns you on and what turns you off, good porn, bad porn, porn you'd like to see more of, is porn problematic or exploitative etc.

  • write porny ficlets, post porny photos, talk about porny things you'd like to do your favourite characters

So... If I build it, will you come? Erm, I mean participate/pimp it? And maybe come too if things get really good...

THOUGHTS PEOPLE?

Right. Summer is here and I'm trying to kick start my writing so I'm requesting some ficlet prompts. BUT! With a slight a difference... Here's the rules:

  1. Leave a prompt for a drabble/ficlet. The prompt should include fandom (but see below), pairing/character(s), and a prompt word/phrase/song/picture

  2. You can only use a fandom I HAVE NOT WRITTEN FOR BEFORE. That's right, I want to broaden my horizons. This means that all the fandoms here (scroll down the post to the handy table) are out of the running, sorry :D

  3. EVERYTHING ELSE IS GAME. TV, films, literature, real people (music, historical, actors...). Try me.

  4. This does mean that there is a chance that you pick a fandom I really don't know at all. In that case I'll just ask you to pick again. Saying that, I will sincerely try to fake it for at least 100 words... I have three degrees which means I'm very good at blagging my way through stuff! :D

  5. First five prompters will definitely get something. The next five will hopefully get something unless I totally flake out. Five after that... Well, I'd be surprised if there's that many.

Aaaaaaaaaaand GO!

Yes, still being lazy resting to recover from illness. Time for a meme then.

Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] thesmallhobbit

Ask me a question about one of my fics or series. It can be absolutely anything in any project and I will answer it the best I can -- even on the progress/plans for next chapters of current series.

If you'd prefer, you can also ask about my writing for a particular fandom, my writing as a whole, etc.


And for the ease of browsing... You can find most of my fanfics on AO3 where I go by MistressKat. Note, however, that anywhere_road and unmarked_place fics are not posted on AO3. All fics can be accessed via the two LJ masterlists, see below with the fandoms listed.

Guess who's DONE with her MA assignments? That's right, THIS ACADEMIC ROCK STAR RIGHT HERE. The celebratory soundtrack in my mind sounds a lot like this.


Anyway, let's do a writing meme to celebrate. Because reasons. The first line of the last 20 fics posted, newest first.


Contrary to all expectations, Monroe falls asleep the moment his head hits the pillow. - not your average lullaby

John doesn’t know what else to do so he does what he does best. - Courtship

The way Dean sees it, it’s going to happen one way or another, and probably sooner than later. - Full Tang

“I can get out of this,” Sherlock says. - your frayed ends all tied up

Nick is running. - Catch of the Day

“The scumbag’s never going to show up,” Doyle grumbles. - Birthday Stakeout

What did you get a Blutbad for a birthday? - Birthday Gamble

“You’re spoiling him rotten.” - Birthday Treat

It’s always like this, or at least they feel like always; these middle-of-the-night, heart-in-mouth, blood-rushing-rushing-possibly-literally visits. - sing no songs except of restless blood

The dreams start gradually. - All Things Mortal

Robbie remembered being a fresh faced recruit, attending his first week at the training school and being told that being a copper meant you had to be prepared for anything. - Life's Sweetest Reward

Another day, another tedious industry party. - Caricias

The hospital smells like pain and disinfectant, all the things Patrick associates with the last few months, all the things that tell him he’s alive. - i know i’m bad news

“Oopsie-daisy. There we go,” Danny says, hoisting Steve out of the car. - A Hard Day’s Night

"You're late," Robbie says. - is not the past all shadow

“No,” Danny says firmly. “Absolutely not.” - Ready to Rock, Ready to Roll

The thing is, in their line of work they eat a lot of biscuits. - Jammy Dodgers Are Not the Only Fruit

There are no prophesies about Sam Winchester because no one sees him coming. - what rough beast, its hour come around at last

Lewis chooses to have this confrontation in the hotel where Williams and the other NDA agents are staying. - Prophesy in Part

Sam is bored. - Summer of ‘73


Well that covered 12 different fandoms: Grimm, Lewis, Hawaii Five-0, Strictly Come Dancing, Great British Bake Off, Masterchef, Supernatural, Harry Potter, The Professionals, Bandom, The X-Files, Sherlock. Wow, I really do get around :D Also I clearly have a thing about dropping the reader right in the middle of action/dialogue which isn't that much of a surprise.

Well that killed some time. Goes to contemplate dinner now.

Hah! I am DONE with the long MA assignment (except for ref checks and appendices but pfft) and because almost all the note-taking has been completed for the two shorter ones I'm pretty much at least 70% with all the MA assignments. Unless they come back with major revisions from tutors... *crosses fingers*

To celebrate and help my brain relax, I thought I'd do the Grill the Writer Meme again, just in case someone has questions.

Ask a question about my writing and I'll try to answer it:

1) What I was thinking at the time I wrote a story/series or a question about my writing as a whole. It can be absolutely anything including about my WIPs. (I don't post WIPs, but I guess you can ask about them in general re fandoms or pairings or quotes, idk)

2) Pick a character/pairing I've written and I will explain the top five some ideas, concepts, etc. I try to keep in mind while writing that character/pairing.

3) Quote a few lines from something I've written and I'll comment on them.

4) At AO3 I have posted xx works. Pick a number from 1 (the most recent) to xx (the first story I posted there) and I'll tell you three things I currently like about the story. IDK why this is so complicated a question and also, as much as I love AO3, the casual assumption that everyone posts fics there is annoying. Well. I do post most of my fics there. But not all, e.g. none of the unmarked_place stuff is there because of reasons. Anyway, rather than play with numbers, why not just randomly select a story and then I can tell you some things about it. Probably not 3 and probably not why I like it. But things.

Oh yeah, you can find my fics via LJ Masterlist or via AO3.

This has been floating all around the flist (and can I just say how awesome it is to have an active flist again *g*)

Put a number in the comments and I’ll answer accordingly.

The mission for those of us who answer the questions, should we accept it, is to stay positive about our writing and ourselves, but to also be fair about our shortcomings.

1. Of the fic you’ve written, of which are you most proud?
2. Favourite tense
3. Favourite POV
4. What are some themes you love writing about?
5. What inspires you to write?
6. Thoughts on critique
7. Create a character on the spot... NOW!
8. Is there a character you love writing for the most? The least? Why?
9. A passage from a WIP
10. What are your strengths in writing?
11. What are your weaknesses in writing?
12. Anything else that you want to know... (otherwise known as Fill in the Blank)

PLEASE consider posting the meme on your own LJ even if you don't want to ask me a question

Icon Meme

Jan. 26th, 2014 12:01 pm
kat_lair: (GEN - good sign)
***

1. Reply to this post and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

This is from [livejournal.com profile] moth2fic who picked the following 5 icons of mine...



This icon was made by me and features Brendon (left) and Spencer of Panic! At The Disco. It was one of my first attempts at layering and using textures (I forgot whom the background texture is by) and I'm still very pleased with the results. I like the black and white with green thing, and the cropping. I'm fan of cropping photos in a way that leaves quite a bit of empty space. I have a version of this without the exclamation mark which I also like. The exclamation mark is there as a reference of its return to the band name. The font used is Bleeding Cowboys which is one of my favourite fonts. I tend to use this icon for general bandom or P!ATD oriented posts/comments.






This icon is by inspireoncemore and tagged 'cat perspective' as the keywords. I liked it because it's kind of melancholy/contemplative and whimsical at the same time. It has that 'I'm being emo and staring at the rain whilst recognising how ridiculous I'm being' thing, which is essentially me because I'm prone to emoting like that even though I know I'm being silly. Used for general commenting or cat-related stuff.




Made by 100years_icons this is one I found whilst looking for Monty Python quote icons. The quote is obviously from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I love all the Monty Python films although I'm not an obsessive fan and can't quote them word-for-word like some (although I'm known to point a finger at a colleague and go 'He's not a messiah, he's a very naughty boy!'). Knights who say NI are close to my heart because that sound 'ni' is one that Finnish speakers actually use a lot! It's a short for 'niin' which means 'so', and used a lot (at least where I'm from) in conversations to basically indicate 'I'm listening/go on/then what'. My ex pointed out the similarity many years ago and I can't unhear it now *g* Perfect icon for all kinds of random, strange or hilarious posts. Oh, and for those interested, the clip with the quote here.






This icon was made by [livejournal.com profile] tulabula - the account seems to be purged though so no idea if the maker is still around under another name. I don't know what the original art work or who by. My keywords for this are 'lady in red'. I don't really have deep reason for having this beyond the fact that I really like it: pretty lady in a gorgeous dress, with a chair in the background that looks like a throne, and when you put the two together, my mind goes to 'lady in charge' which is always something there's not enough and I can relate to *g*






I really love text icons, probably because I'm very word-oriented, rather than visual person I guess. Credit goes to obsequieux This is a quote from Futurama which is an awesome cartoon series which I love far more than The Simpsons. It's uttered by Morbo who is a very angry alien news presenter (the news in Futurama is, I gather, a piss-take on Fox 'News' in general) and you can find the clip here. Like the Monty Python quote icon this is perfect in its inherent randomness and hilarity and used on appropriate occasions.

Seriously, I've had a very long week. Yesterday I had 3 lectures. Which I gave. 2x2h + 1x3h and then I attended a fourth one. Now I need to clean and tomorrow I still need to do some lecture prep and clean more. I have many tabs open that I should comment on. I have laptop I should be buying. And... idek, other things that I've failed at. So hey, what's one more.

1) What I was thinking at the time I wrote a story/series or a question about my writing as a whole. It can be absolutely anything including about my WsIP. (I don't post WIPs, they're all on my hard-drive and I don't like to talk about them so there)

The fact that I’m getting to this whilst it’s still January is a win.

Fics posted in 2013. Includes fics not actually written in 2013, and as usual the Secret Santa 2013 fic though that was technically posted this year. Excludes a lot of stuff written in 2013 but not posted anywhere yet. Whatever, just roll with it.

The days before a holiday I find it increasingly difficult to actually motivate myself to do some work. All I've done today and yesterday is wield various emails regarding this conference handbook I'm organising, and copy-paste text around in an effort to put together the skeleton of my next teaching portfolio assignment. Word-count wise I think I'm actually almost 50% there, although it doesn't translate to actual effort still needed for it. But I just can't muster the energy to care. Here are the mental justifications for what is essentially laziness:
1. I am actually more than half done with this teaching portfolio now (nevermind that I still haven't got any formative feedback on it and if that turns out to be not so positive I may very well have to redo stuff)
2. The deadline for this is not until end of October (nevermind that I have conference paper, resit grading, and at least ten lectures to pull out of my ass by then as well)
3. Just because I've got two weeks off and mum is here, doesn't mean I can't do some work. She's got books and crafts with her and doesn't need entertaining 24/7 (nevermind that I was hoping to use such spare time to write my challenge fics and make some icons)
4. All in all I have 10 unused holiday days and no time to take them so surely doing barely half days for a couple of weeks is justified

*handwaves*

Anyway, today and yesterday I've also had some builders around to sort out my bathroom roof and other small things that needed fixing. Which has been another convenient excuse for not getting much work done.  But, at least house things are now fixed.

Tomorrow I have a tutorial with my challenging dissertation student (will she ever finish it? WILL SHE EVER LEAVE? I just don't know) followed by attempt to further my teaching portfolio assignment some more. [livejournal.com profile] pushkin666 is coming for the weekend and may be roped into cleaning the house with me. On Sunday afternoon I'm going to head over to Gatwick airport, stay overnight at the Premier Inn there and pick up mum bright and early Monday morning.

Ugh, right now I think I'm going to go and organise some paperwork in the office and call British Gas about fitting smart meters. That should assuage my guilt of not working a little. But first, a meme I snagged from [livejournal.com profile] beedekka a while back.

Meeeeemeeeeee )
