But this is sort of cheating, because it's not ~really fic that I worked on for months and months of angst and editing. This is fic that I wrote because I watched Lost Girl 5.07 (the most recent ep), and oh my god that thing at the end was SO UPSETTING and I had some time to myself and this kind of happened by accident.

It is super self-indulgent, but I feel better now, so: worth it? :D?

If you all though I'd let 2014 get away without writing fic about two ladies kissing set to a Taylor Swift quote, you were SO WRONG. I wrote this for the AOS Holiday Exchange on Tumblr (who am I etc). It has been forever since I wrote fic for a challenge, and it was a nice little push to actually write in a thoughtful way.

(Also thank you thank you to [personal profile] beerbad who beta-read this like a lot.)

So, I may or may not have spent the last couple of months channeling all of my fandom energy into this one fic. For those of you not following me on Tumblr - I have fallen down the MCU rabbit hole HARD, mostly because Agents of SHIELD gets me in all of my heart places. Mostly, Simmons and Skye are my favourites and I just want them to both not be sad or traumatized and maybe hug each other a little a lot and make out. Especially after the finale.

This fic is a BEAST. I wanted it to be this cute little post-episode tag where I fixed things, and then I started writing plot, and now it is this 21K BEAST, but I am also really, really proud of it. Please read it if you think you might like it, friends.

Apparently I only update when ~the mood strikes~ and I write fic. Opportunities for this are clearly SUPER FREQUENT in my life right now.

Still on Tumblr, which I am checking more often. I still don't feel like it really provides a lot of chances to connect with new people, which I think is a shame, but it does let me keep up with the excellent fandom people that I know from here, and that is important. Anyway, for those unaware: swashbucklery is me.

My love for all my TV favourites continues unabated, but also I have a new TV love, namely: Agents of SHIELD. I fully was only expecting to watch this show to follow the inevitable MCU movie tie-ins, but then OMG Skye, and then Simmons, and they got me. Like, I get that the bus is essentially Serenity, and I think they are pushing the GET IT? FOUND FAMILY? vibe a bit hard, but everyone is so cute and I just want them to not die and solve mysteries and play Scrabble together. A LOT.

And then things happened in recent episodes of the show, and I had a sudden feelings explosion where I shipped Skye and Simmons, and then there was fic.

OH HI LIVEJOURNAL.

Let's not discuss how it has been like, months and months since I have posted. I am here, and I still read my flist every day, and sometimes I even check Tumblr.

Things I Am Into Right Now include: Lost Girl always and forever, Warehouse 13, Elementary, REIGN OMG WE HAVE TO DISCUSS REIGN I LOVE THIS BIG DUMB SHOW, Captain America, JANE FOSTER: THE MOVIE Thor 2 was alright, and also I am sort of into the new Draahhhhhculaaa show on NBC. It's DREADFUL, but Mina is a plucky Victorian med student and Lucy is FABULOUS and also breathtakingly gay.

Anyway, I have a week off and was on Tumblr this morning and [profile] osito_panda may or may not have goaded me into writing Dracula fic, and then IDK it just happened. WHOOPS.

the people and places we are meant for, Dracula (2013), Lucy/Mina, R
It's been a fortnight since Jonathan and Mina fought, and he has yet to send a single word of apology.

GUYS. It has come to my attention that OMGOMG LOST GIRL FINALE.

While I definitely do not have time for a recap, I have a lot of FEELINGS and was hoping maybe some of you had feelings too and we could ~discuss,~ old-school style.

omgomgomg lost girl 3.13 )

BASICALLY, Season 4 is going to be awesome, but they had better make all my favourites happy and also include some kind of wacky comedy episode (what haven't they done yet? Bodyswap 2.0?) to make me feel better.
pirateygoodness: mine. (lostgirl: aced the class on pretty hair)
GUYS CAN WE PLEASE DISCUSS LOST GIRL AND HOW IT IS LIKE FABULOUS GAY CHRISTMAS?

spoilers for lost girl season 3 eps 1-3 )

In conclusion, I like stuff and TV is being good to me this season.
pirateygoodness: (Default)
Happy holidays-that-you-may-or-may-not-celebrate-in-December, flist! I MISS YOU.

This is the first year in many, many years that I did not do Yuletide, and on the one hand I think that was an excellent decision, because I got approximately a billion colds over the month of December and it was no fun. On the other, it is so weird not doing Yuletide and stressing out/checking for gifts with the rest of fandom! Where are you guys? DO I NEED TO ACTUALLY START READING TUMBLR I CAN'T IT'S TOO HARD.



I am pondering doing one of those "year in review" memes, but basically it would go something like, "This Year I Very Much Enjoyed Bo/Lauren, You Can Tell Because I Wrote An Enormous Pirate AU Of Them." Also I hardly wrote compared to previous years, mostly because: job. Which is good for me on the one hand, but on the other I miss writing and getting wrapped up in fictional worlds, you know?

I did still watch lots and lots and lots of TV shows - I am still not ~emotionally ready~ to rewatch the last half of Warehouse 13 and process it, because I have TOO MANY FEELINGS, but it totally happened.

Also I have been keeping up to date on Once Upon A Time, and letting it percolate, and I still do not, like, ~get~ Emma/Regina, but OH MY GOD CAN WE DISCUSS HOW MUCH I LOVE RUBY/BELLE AND WANT THEM TO FALL IN FABULOUS TRUE LOVE AND ADOPT A KITTEN. I rewatched "Skin Deep" last night, and now I have all these thoughts on Belle, because APPARENTLY my one true character these days is someone bookish and a little bit awkward who has spent a fair bit of their lives in some sort of prison. DON'T JUDGE ME. Where - where do I find the other people who also have thoughts on her and then we talk about how she should make out with Ruby and is it possible to make out without being in True Love if you are a Fairytale Person and oh my god is Rumplestiltskin not the creepiest thing to ever creep WHY IS THAT A THING and what do you guys think Belle's favourite kinds of books would be.

I - it is possible that I want to write fic.


ALSO ALSO ALSO Lost Girl comes back NEXT MONTH, and there will be a Season 3 and there will be kissing and Bo will be all evil and skanky and Lauren will look like this in her excellent gay shirt collection and GUYS WHAT IF BO HOOKS UP WITH THE MORRIGAN. IT COULD TOTALLY HAPPEN OMGOMG. I plan to celebrate by rewatching the entire series, if I can ever stop pondering Once Upon A Time.

Please discuss?

Guys, I wrote a [livejournal.com profile] femslash12 thing! I CAN STILL DO FANDOM, SEE? It is Lost Girl fic, but - SHOCK OF SHOCKS - is neither Bo/Lauren, nor the epic Bo/Morrigan hatesexfest I kept threatening to write after the end of last season.

(Except not really.)


So, like, here's the deal. I like you, I just don't like you like you. I treat my friends list like a reading list, and I like to have a pretty good idea of who is reading my entries (which are about 90% all-caps babbling about my fandoms, 10% oblique references to my life). So - I love new friends, but I don't friend back everyone who friends me first, because I don't have time to read everyone's entries. My friending "policy" is mysterious and idiosyncratic, it's not you it's me, I just need some space, etc etc.

All of my fic, past, present and future, is at [livejournal.com profile] scurvyknavery.

Posts announcing fic will be unlocked, as will the occasional all-caps fannish post, because I know it can be maddening to friend somebody when you have no idea what their entries sound like.
pirateygoodness: (Default)
Attn Internet: fine. YOU WIN.

I started Once Upon A Time, and although there is still a snobby part of me that is pointedly bitter because ALICE IN WONDERLAND IS NOT A FAIRY TALE, NOR IS PETER PAN, THEY ARE JUST OLD BOOKS DISNEY BOUGHT THE FILM RIGHTS TO, MY DELICATE SENSIBILITIES, uh. I watched the whole series and FINE I see the appeal.

I think I watched it wrong, though? Because my sense is that everyone is all about Emma/Regina, but all I noticed was Emma/Snow, which yes technically Snow is Emma's mom, but still. Also possibly my favourite characters ever are Granny and Grumpy.

Also Red/every girl ever, because RUBY, CRANKY PLAID-WEARING WAITRESS OF MY SOUL, but especially Red/Belle. Is that a thing? Is there fanfiction of that? :D?
pirateygoodness: (w13: myka has a girlfriend face & it's)
Dear [livejournal.com profile] femslash12:

(Aside: GUYS IT IS FEMSLASH TIME AGAIN, MY FAVOURITEST FIC EXCHANGE IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE, LET US ALL REJOICE!)

I am really excited that you are my partner. I am confident that you have excellent taste, because we have matched on at least one of my favourite pairings in my favourite fandoms EVER, and I am super excited to read whatever you decide to write for me.

In broad, general terms, I like madcap adventures and truly ridiculous AUs (think: that one time everyone was a sexy vampire/cowboy/pirate/space-time traveler). If you want to write the story that is basically GUYS WHAT IF MYKA WAS A SAILOR AND HG WELLS HAD AN EYEPATCH AND THEY MADE EYES AT EACH OTHER ACROSS THE OCEAN, I would be THERE.

The characters I gravitate to in fiction are women who are grown up and excellent at their jobs and have a core of vulnerability but don't let it stop them from being fantastic at punching stuff in the face/blowing things up/quietly saving the universe, and I like them to stay that way in fic.

I like reading about kissing, and very consensual, enthusiastic sex, sometimes on tabletops. But I also like reading about friendly devotion that blurs that line into romantic devotion, and holding hands, and spooning, if the emotional notes are hit just right. My automatic, bulletproof squicks include: dramatic verbal declarations of love, any rom-com style romantic "misunderstanding", non-consensual sexual activity, babies, weddings, that thing where people "play doctor" and it's a "sexy physical exam" etc. Emphatically no thank you.

If you would like to read more about my thoughts on the specific fandoms I requested, they are under the cut. If not, dear writer, I hope you have fun and write something that suits your interests and style. I'm super excited to read it!

so many thoughts in mostly caps )

Love,
[livejournal.com profile] piratey
pirateygoodness: (w13: myka has a girlfriend face & it's)
So mostly this post is to say that GUYS, I just finished watching Continuum, and contrary to how slow the pilot is, THIS SHOW IS SO GOOD, OH GOSH.

I mean, there is zero femslash, because basically Rachel Nichols' character is the only female and she interacts with no dudes ever, but she is given this really lovely Noble Hero Trying To Go Home arc, and the way they are doing time travel (because guys: this show is about time travel) and the politics between the various past and present factions is very, very cool.

For those of you who are all WHAT IS THIS FUNNY CANADIAN PROGRAM OF WHICH YOU SPEAK, um. Basically it's a sci-fi series brought to you by the network that created Lost Girl, but with higher production value. It's about Kiera Cameron, who is a cop in Vancouver in 2077, until some terrorists send themselves BACK IN TIME, FOR EVIL and accidentally they go to Vancouver in 2012 and accidentally she goes with them, and then stuff happens. The entire show is basically gen, and revolves around EXPLOSIONS and CAN WE CHANGE THE FUTURE/WHAT IF WE ALREADY HAVE, but - I don't know. It's a really well-done, clever take on a concept that has been done a lot. I'd recommend watching it - it's only ten episodes, and what about CANADIAN TIME COP is not amazing, come on.

(Also possibly I have a soft spot for Kiera, whose interests are, in order: Family, Punching Terrorists In The Face, Horsies (THIS IS CANON), and Seriously Considering Awkwardly Making Friends, Maybe, With People From 2012. [livejournal.com profile] carmen_sandiego and I also have this theory that she is going to move to Vancouver Island in season 2 and develop a passion for baking organic spelt scones, but that may just be us.)

I think that all of you should watch it, so we can discuss how OH GOSH, TIME TRAVEL. We could also maybe discuss how I'd sort of like genfic featuring Kiera and Kellogg on that ridiculous boat, if you like. IT GIVES ME INFINITY LOLS.

GUYS.

The [community profile] femslash12/[livejournal.com profile] femslash12 fandom polls are up! If you plan to participate/read, go vote!

Also, possibly if Lost Girl doesn't make it into the list of fandoms I will VOMIT SADNESS, just saying.
pirateygoodness: mine. (lostgirl: aced the class on pretty hair)
Heeeeey fandom. Oh man, has it been a long while since last we spoke.

SOME THINGS.

1) I tooootally went to FanExpo and got to introduce/hang out with [livejournal.com profile] noblealice and [livejournal.com profile] carmen_sandiego, which was delightful. We got to be in a room with Zoie Palmer, who used the phrase "bakey smurf" in a sentence, as well as the rest of the Lost Girl cast who remain RADIANTLY BEAUTIFUL in person, oh good grief. I remain half-convinced that Anna Silk is a cylon, HOW IS SHE THE AGE THAT SHE IS AND THAT LOVELY FACE-WISE.

(I am still plugging away at my Lost Girl rewatch. I feel like I need to do a post that is just OH MAN GUYS REMEMBER WHEN THIS HAPPENED ON SEASON 2 OF LOST GIRL, NO SERIOUSLY, THEY ACTUALLY MADE THIS AN EPISODE OF REAL TV.)

We also went to the Continuum panel, despite all of us having seen maybe half the show between us, and they kind of sold me on watching their show. Guys, it is actually, like, super good. Future Cop Rachel Nichols has a lot of feelings but also shoots things, and while I wish there were more women, I like what they're doing with the whole time travel concept. Also: Canada.

2) HEY SPEAKING OF TIME TRAVEL. I am watching Dr Who this season, mostly so that when they inevitably kill Amy Pond in a horrible flash of firey space-time death, I can be quietly outraged without getting spoiled for it. And then I can quietly hold a grudge against the next companion, who I'm sure will be perfectly lovely but won't be Amy Pond.

(I had this problem waaaay back in the day when Martha was a companion and they wrote her off. This show. Me + female characters. Etc.)

3) I remain really, super invested in Warehouse 13. Like, a lot.

cut! spoilers for season 4 through episode 4.06, 'fractures' )

ALSO I STILL WANT CLAUDIA TO RUN INTO KENZI SOMEWHERE IN TORONTO AND BECOME HER BFF.

4) THIS IS A PLACEHOLDER. HAVE WATCHED NEARLY ALL OF NIKITA (CW, Maggie Q & Evil Julie Cooper). PLANNING TO SCRAWL "NIKITA TOTALLY LOVES ALEX 4EVA" ALL OVER THE BATHROOM WALLS.

ALSO THIS ONE TIME THERE WAS AN EPISODE WHERE KENZI WAS AN EVIL RUSSIAN SEX-WORKER. ALSO ALSO THERE WAS ANOTHER EPISODE WHERE DOCTOR LAUREN WAS AN EVIL MAYBE ALSO RUSSIAN WEAPON BUYER.
pirateygoodness: mine. (lostgirl: aced the class on pretty hair)
1. Warehouse 13! I - I have a lot of emotions. A lot of them are Claudia-related emotions, and the rest are related to Myka and her hair and how fabulous she is, PLUS I have some theories about the thing that happened in the first episode of the season and What It Means. I want to discuss it, but I also want to wait and see where the show takes things. TORN.

2. Due to various reasons, I've been scheduled bizarre work hours recently and maaay have accidentally rewatched all of Season 4 of Buffy. WORLD WITHOUT SHRIMP. GILES IS A DEMON. I WEAR THE CHEESE, IT DOES NOT WEAR ME. Also - okay, first of all, I cannot believe it has been more than ten years since that season aired on TV, but also I have a lot of thoughts re: Willow and Tara. Because like, as a fourteen-year-old babyqueer watching that as it aired, I thought Willow and Tara were SO COOL and also SO SUBTLE AND MYSTERIOUS (possibly I also thought Buffy was THE BEST SHOW EVER MADE EVER). And looking back - god, what a bizarre way to depict a relationship. I know that at the time there were limits to what one could show in a TV program geared toward teens, but - like, they don't even kiss. At all. The entire season.

And now TV shows aimed at teens can have queer female characters have sex, in an actually-depicted way, and - I don't know. The future: different from the past and in many ways better!

Also, going back as an adult, I cannot stand Xander anymore. Wow.

3. At the end of the month I am going to Fan Expo, which is like SDCC except little and Canadian and everyone is super polite yet simultaneously has no boundaries. And once again, the cast of Lost Girl is doing a panel. I plan to nerd out hardcore and wait for an amount of time I shall not disclose after the fact to be in a room while Anna Silk and Zoie Palmer talk about things.

It's going to be fantastic/possibly it will go a lot like this a softer world comic. If any of you are in the area and planning to be there, let me know!

4. In light of this, possibly I want to try to rewatch alllll of Lost Girl between now and August 24. GUYS YOU SHOULD JOIN ME. THERE IS SO MUCH RIDICULOUS STUFF/I SORT OF LOVE THAT SHOW/MAGIC BEER BODYSWAP THEREFORE ALL YOUR ARGUMENTS ARE INVALID. MAGIC BEER BODYSWAP AND ALSO I AM WILLING TO BET MONEY THAT LAUREN SECRETLY MAINTAINS A CUPCAKE BLOG IN HER SPARE TIME.

(Someday I will have to do ficlet-amnesty and post the snippets of my Lauren-and-Dyson-get-drunk-and-agree-to-open-a-brewery story. I want that to be actual fanon, you guys. So much.)

YOU GUYS, WAREHOUSE 13. I HAVE SO MANY EMOTIONS.

SOME OF THEM ARE POSITIVE EMOTIONS BUT SOME OF THEM ARE CONCERNED EMOTIONS. COME DISCUSS ALL OF YOUR FEELINGS ABOUT THIS WITH ME.

SPOILERS FOR 4.01 IN THE COMMENTS.
pirateygoodness: (w13: myka has a girlfriend face & it's)
This is mostly a public service announcement. To those of you who have been all, "J! WATCH NIKITA. IT HAS WOMEN AND EVERYTHING EXPLODES, NO SERIOUSLY": you were right. I was wrong.

Basically, I have powered through the first two-thirds of season 1 in like a weekend, and I am 100% hooked. This is like 40% Maggie Q's fabulous legs, and 60% ALEX AND HER ADORING PUPPY EYES WHENEVER NIKITA DOES SOMETHING, because yes yes whatever they are both ostensibly straight, except that NO BOY WILL EVER MATCH THE BEAUTIFUL LOVE THEY HAVE FOR EACH OTHER.

It is wonderful. Also, everything really does explode.

(Also also, I have been enjoying the fact that it allows me to play EVEN MORE Toronto Guest Actor Bingo. Featured so far: that dude who was the Lich on Lost Girl/the mean fashion designer on Warehouse 13, and that dude who was the bounty hunter in the magic-beer-bodyswap ep of Lost Girl.)

Also also also: WAREHOUSE 13 COMES BACK TOMORROW! I am working late that day, and if anyone Tumblrs or LJs or tweets spoilers outside of a cut before Tuesday night, I will physically go to your home and give you a stern talking-to about manners.
