[sticky entry] Sticky: sponsorable fic list

chanter_greenie: a lilac tree in bloom (Wisconsin spring: lilac season)
I actually have one of these, now! I'm amazed I got this far. Fics available for funding by donation are listed below. I'm borrowing from the ever-marvelous [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith here by listing the name of the person who prompted the story. I've also learned about rate calculations by following her examples and links. For information on the orange!verse, and the Schrodinger's Heroes project that spawned it, see her menu page.

Just for my own sake, if a person donates for one of these fics, could they please send a private message or drop a comment or... something of that sort? I've never done this from the writerly side before, and I have no idea if PayPal will send a message of its own when a donation comes in. Edited to add: It does send a message! I still have no objections to people dropping a line, though. I don't often equate usernames with real names, especially if I don't know you RL.

This is as close as I can get to how this series runs, chronological order-wise. It's a fair suggested reading order too, although several of these can stand alone if so desired. The first two pieces diverge from the rest, but not as far as you might think. Works without linked titles are available for sponsorship, or incomplete and being worked on if noted.

Update: I now have a character list posted for the orange!verse. Be forewarned, some of the details in that list are spoilers for as-yet unreleased pieces. Read with caution if inclined to avoid info you'd sooner find out in stories as they appear.

chanter_greenie: a lilac tree in bloom (Wisconsin spring: lilac season)
Signed a lease on a new apartment, to be moved into this August. The building in question is rather less... um ragged around the edges, not that there's anything truly wrong with my current one except the wonky street door lock (it spins within its housing). By the sound of it, there'll be fewer ganja-smoking college dudebros stomping around the new place, which is a definite positive. New apartment is bigger than current one, and with somewhat more storage space. I may have room for a few important things I haven't yet had places for since moving to the city. New rent is more than current rent, but manageable.

... Wow, this is bittersweet. I truly do like Newbury Place, creepy dudebro neighbors and their pot fumes notwithstanding. My landladies are complete sweethearts, and I suspect we'll be friendly long after I've moved out. I've already been told not to be a stranger. :)

... Ow. Dang. This smarts. It's probably a good move, but it still smarts.
chanter_greenie: a starscape, including a spiral galaxy (on a quest for a jewel)
From the ever-brilliant [personal profile] alexseanchai.

The story from which I've snippet-ed is nowhere near finished. It's slooooow going, mostly because Vulcan thought processes are dang hard to write. It says something when Manual text is one of the easier aspects of a story.

Spoilers for an as-yet unpublished Star Trek/Young Wizards crossover fic are back here. )
chanter_greenie: a blue-shaded dyed egg (not enough blue in the world)
In the category of yes, I am a blind fan, and I'm being literal with that descriptor. Can somebody clue me in as to what two particular ML characters look like? I'd click on the fandom wiki page for one of them, but that page carries a gigantic flippin' spoiler warning at the top, and I do N-O-T want to step into a nest of spoilers! Definitely not before I finish this AU, because I've got a particular power set and mode, as well as personalities in mind, and I have little doubt it'll all get thoroughly jossed either if I'm spoiled or when I catch up on canon. Both, really. So!

I know Duusu is blue and feathery, with a masculine peafowl tail. That's about all I know! Someone said pink eyes, as in pink irises, in a fic the other day; is that true? Basically, what's that kwami look like?

Also, Émilie is a blonde, I believe? Is it visible in canon if she's taller, shorter, slim like Adrian, anything? I've been picturing her as thinner but not at all unhealthy, and golden blonde rather than silvery or straw.

And, while I think of it, is Gabriel also fair in coloration? Does Adrian get his green eyes from him, or from his mother, or potentially from both of them? Or do we know?

Asking in the name of not frakking up details in fiction, wheeeee!
chanter_greenie: a house and road blanketed in snow (Wisconsin winter: buried in snay)
A surprise!furlough day landed in my lap this afternoon, courtesy the cool bosslady, because it really is super slow at work at the moment. Initially, my fellow customer service rep and I were both told to work 8:30 to 4 for the rest of this week, but that got amended. I wound up staying till the end of the day today thanks to a sneak attack project, but tomorrow stands as a day off. The rest of that sneak attack project has bosslady's blessing to wait until Monday, and I left the office tonight with the cheerful admonition to "Go enjoy the time with your family!" That wasn't a hint; much of the immediate family are coming down this way tomorrow night, and bosslady knew it. It's the UW marching band's annual spring concert, which is always a big deal, but doubly so this year as the much-beloved band director is retiring after a literal half century in the position. I expect the place will be packed to the rafters! Dad, one brother-in-law, and the younger niece are the only ones staying up on the marsh; a marching band at full volume in a capacity arena would probably be more than a little much for a kidlet under two, be she a music-loving toddler or not. I'm doing the rock concert thing and bringing earplugs of my own.

The only downside, aside from worrying that things go bananas while M the coworker is alone in the department, is the dent in the paycheck. I'm lucky in that I can withstand that dent, and I know it.

I am sleeping the heck in tomorrow, listening to WPR's morning show or not at my leisure, then getting rid of the worst of my caterpillar eyebrow overgrowth and hopefully acquiring painted nails at the same time, and, after that's done, having lunch at a food cart somewhere on the square. There will be enjoyment of hot coffee, weekday DXing, and a bunch of writing throughout. And vacuuming of the carpets - blah. Can't win 'em all.

One definite upside to the surprise!day off: Not having to fight the inbound traffic at the end of the afternoon. It's going to be an absolute zoo, between the concert, the Sanders rally (still haven't decided if I'm going to that) and the usual Friday rush. This way, I can meet my family for dinner and concertness without any of us having to scramble.

This should be fun. :)
chanter_greenie: a blue-shaded dyed egg (not enough blue in the world)
This exchange came to me a few minutes ago, and it's too darn cute not to share. I'm not entirely sure where in the Not Alone AU series it'll go, if in fact it fits anywhere, but at the moment, I'd hazard a guess at Tsurugi Tomoe being the person to whom Émilie's thinking she needs to reveal. These two are just... too darn <3! I may be having too much fun with the differing frames of reference thing...


"I'm alright, mon ami," Émilie says, and one might be forgiven for mistaking the desperate certainty in her voice for confidence or casualness. "I'm about to blow my cover."

Duusu, in midair, backwings hard enough in surprised dismay that he nearly goes head over talons, and rights himself in a literal flutter. "What? Oh no! If something's going to explode, we should get out of here! But wait. You didn't set a black powder charge, did you?"


XD

chanter_greenie: a lilac tree in bloom (Wisconsin spring: lilac season)
Whatever else happens tonight (I'm biting my dang nails over this state Supreme Court race, argh!) my city just made history in electing its first openly queerfolk mayor! Satya Rhodes-Conway is a progressive, openly gay woman of color, and she is so *very* welcome as Madison's newest mayor. :D

Praying the horrifyingly anti-quiltbag candidate for Supreme Court doesn't get the nod... ack!
chanter_greenie: a house and road blanketed in snow (Wisconsin winter: buried in snay)
I'm adding to the flurry of notices going up of late, because tomorrow is... what tomorrow is. I won't be pulling any April Fool's pranks of my own, though I may describe other people's if I encounter any particularly excellent ones. If I do go for description, it will be clearly labeled as such, the better to let people skip if desired.
chanter_greenie: paratroopers Talbert and Smith in Carentan, Tab looking delighted, Smith embarrassed (BoB - Carentan: Tab and Smithy - ack!)
Spotted this meme in a long-ago post at someone else's journal and said... oooooh! XD Wording tweaked slightly to suit the new platform.

I would like my DW friends to comment about how you got to know me. But I want you to LIE. That's right. Just make it up. If you'd like, copy this to your journal so others can do the same.

Right, how did folken meet the resident long-haired nerdlady? I'm seriously curious to know. :)
chanter_greenie: a panther being stared at by multiple other animals (this panther has been to Colorado)
And it’s worse when work is slower than a snail. Tips for dealing with the above subject line very much appreciated, because this is going to be one long afternoon. I’m fine, for the record, just having a horrible mental health day. See my previous entry for why.
chanter_greenie: a panther being stared at by multiple other animals (this panther has been to Colorado)
A dozen years, and a certain character from a certain former canon still gets to me. Related, the reason I stopped *watching* said canon is still just as painful as it was when it aired. This proven by my being an idiot and reading a couple fics about the character in question over the last couple days, set post... er, event (I can't even name it!), and being emotionally wrecked as a result, and not in a fun way.

I know what possessed me. I knew I was being stupid at the time I decided to click over and read. ... Dammit. Why did I *do* that? What's the Trekverse line about the dangers of reopening old wounds? I'm no surgeon, but you'd think I'd at least have a clue, especially given that this was the episode, literally and figuratively, that essentially forced me to come out of my own mental closet.

For the record, I'm fine, where fine is not in danger of doing anything unsafe or worrying. This frakking hurts, though. Ow ow ow. :( :( :(

Going to distract myself with a new episode of a current canon, now.
chanter_greenie: a blue-shaded dyed egg (not enough blue in the world)
Evidently, my Émilie is a little Anne Shirley, a dash of Edith Keeler, some yours truly, some confident free spirited joy that's all her own, and if Adrian's got any anxiety, it's becoming plain he does NOT get it from Gabriel... She's also got zero haughtiness going on. Unrelated, I think she's demisexual.

One cannot commit egregious acts of OOC for a character we don't know yet, especially when writing an AU. Dammit, self, remember this.
chanter_greenie: a blue-shaded dyed egg (not enough blue in the world)
And I am probably doomed. I'll be doomed again when I catch up on canon, but until this AU's finished, I'm deliberately *avoiding* canon, so... This all came out in one, by the way. I don't know why that's been the tendency lately.

I credit [personal profile] alexseanchai with giving me the 'there's a new episode of canon, and you might want to time viewing it carefully since you might get jossed' kick in the rear I needed to get this going.

A Face That You Recognize (935 words) by Chanter

chanter_greenie: a blue-shaded dyed egg (not enough blue in the world)
Hey [personal profile] alexseanchai... :)

I'm sure my headcanon for about a zillion different things is going to end up thoroughly jossed, but that's what AUs are for. Identities and a few paragraphs of the Miraculous Ladybug AU I'm slowly constructing beneath the cut.

In a universe a few steps over from and some sixteen or seventeen years prior to canon... )

I'd write out my developing headcanon for a couple people here, and I will if folks are interested, but I worry I'm going to sound like an obsessive weirdo again... :(
chanter_greenie: a starscape, including a spiral galaxy (on a quest for a jewel)
The episode of Glitter Ship featuring my poem The Lamentations of Old Money is now live!
Glitter Ship episode 66 is thisaway

I am seriously metaphorically dancing all over the room!
chanter_greenie: a bright blue sky and fluffy clouds (Wisconsin summer: boundless friendly sky)
The incredibly talented jeweler and beadwork artist [personal profile] elisem has a challenge running at the link. Passing the word because the artist is a delight, and because her work is truly excellent; I have a bracelet and several pairs of WisCon haiku earring party earrings of her creation.

If so inclined, go forth and take up the challenge!
chanter_greenie: a house and road blanketed in snow (Wisconsin winter: buried in snay)
Quoth the me, after dodging a pair of signs in the middle of the sidewalk, then asking a passerby just what they were and finding out they were VOTE HERE signs: Oh my gosh, it's February 19!

Yes, I voted. Bad me, I almost forgot! I'm sure people have walked into polling places for elections, primary or otherwise, carrying stranger things than a shoulder bag full of work and other miscellanae, a white cane, and dinner. I can't think of any just now, though. :) Voter 588 at 6:15 this evening, and the worst part was navigating past the loud vacuum cleaner.

Now it can snow. :P
chanter_greenie: a blue-shaded dyed egg (not enough blue in the world)
... Fraggin' episode full of flashbacks and clips, ack! :(

And one gigantic line indeed, flail! Flail flail flail! When tied to a particular canon reaction to something, within seconds of that line... flaaaaail! :(

But which is true?

Spoilers! Also a ton of speculation, but did I mention SPOILERS? )

FLAAAAAIIIIILing!
chanter_greenie: a house and road blanketed in snow (Wisconsin winter: buried in snay)
Made it to Rachel's celebration of life, on a literal flying visit to Maryland and back again. Left yesterday afternoon, got home less than two hours ago. More when I have the brains. Right now, all the laundry, a shower, and then, eventually, all the sleep. This past day and a half has been extremely difficult in lots of ways. I'm pretty much out of spoons.
