[sticky entry] Sticky: sponsorable fic list

Jan. 1st, 2016 07:23 am
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 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 blue-shaded dyed egg (not enough blue in the world)
Herein lie speculation, headcanon, and shameless wish fulfillment, all of the fannish kind, for Miraculous Ladybug. Sticking the musing under a cut. And my screenreader really does all but split a certain name into three, and I love it, so. The double vowel thing is a Trek reference.

Snippity trilingual nerdery! )
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.
chanter_greenie: a panther being stared at by multiple other animals (this panther has been to Colorado)
I love you, Rachel. I'm so sorry I never got to Baltimore to visit you. I'm so sorry we never got to do all the things we talked about, or try any of the ideas we bounced around. You were such an amazing friend; between the practical advice and the plain old lending an ear, I don't know how many times I leaned on you over the years, but the scales were definitely unequal there. I owe you, owed you, so much. You and I openly admitted to each other that we were on each other's extremely short list of roommates, should the need arise. You should have had fifty years more. I hate walking pneumonia, the goddamn stealth killer. Hate it so much.

I had to find out through goddamn twitter, and then see a confirming e-mail. I knew her when she was presenting as a boy, back when we were kids. I'll never hear Excelsior called a big bucket of bolts without remembering our introduction - that was how we recognized each other as fellow Trek nerds and clicked. I'm so glad she didn't know the worst of me that was me in Colorado. As selfish as it sounds, and as much as she told me off for the thought (yes, she knew I felt this way), I'm so glad she didn't have the chance to reject me too. I am in pieces over here.

I was going to fly out to Baltimore and visit her, but we could never get the dates coordinated. We talked about her topping me, batted around ideas, with the understanding that either of us could tap out at any time and it would have zero bearing on our friendship. She's one of the two people who talked me into, finally, getting my ham ticket. I owe her my callsign.

chanter_greenie: a house and road blanketed in snow (Wisconsin winter: buried in snay)
When you're both fully expecting and entirely prepared to go out in the bitterly cold (-30 C, before the wind chill factors in) weather, and then get a text from your boss, as in the big boss, who's the one who outlined for you that if the metro bus system closes, so does the company, saying there are two days of company closure coming due to weather.

I'm surprised, even now, but I'm not objecting! I was fully ready to go out in the ick, though I wouldn't have been happy about it - who would? but will absolutely take the fact that I don't have to. As I texted my direct boss when she confirmed I'd gotten the companywide message: Stay warm, stay safe. I'm going back to bed!

And so I did. Only to have Challenger-related nightmares... :(

Missed Jeopardy! earlier. Darnit. Tomorrow.
chanter_greenie: a house and road blanketed in snow (Wisconsin winter: buried in snay)
1638 UTC. Rest in peace, Challenger seven.
chanter_greenie: a starscape, including a spiral galaxy (on a quest for a jewel)
Don't worry, we will *not* be outside for operations tomorrow and Sunday. I don't envy the folks doing antenna setup, though... :P

If anyone so inclined and with suitable gear happens to hear W9JZ on the ham bands this weekend, that's us!

For reference, it is bitterly, horribly, frakkingly cold in this region of the States right now. As in, probably -20 or worse C, and that's air temperature. I won't even try to convert wind chill; I'll only make a hash of it. I really do need to find, or preferably learn, a reliable method of degree scale conversion. Anybody know one?
chanter_greenie: a house and road blanketed in snow (Wisconsin winter: buried in snay)
Well out of order, but I didn't have any brain for this particular challenge before now!

In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favorite interview, a book, a scene from a movie, etc) and explain
why you love it so much. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

It took me forever to come up with this one, not because I don't have canon moments I adore, but because I've had very little brain lately, and getting squee down in words is a nontrivial problem in itself. Ack! But let's see...

Band Of Brothers spoilers, specifically for The Last Patrol, back here )
chanter_greenie: a house and road blanketed in snow (Wisconsin winter: buried in snay)
It's been too long, and... well reasons, and I said what the heck, why not? Have an orange!verse slice of life snippet, or rather several, somewhat listed. No warnings, save allusions to not-so-pleasant things happening to people offscreen. None of those allusions are detailed. 2054 words.

Essential Components )

Notes are important, too:

*In the interest of full disclosure, when I was growing up, we had a radio very much like the one described here, only it was on a metal shelving unit, not in a wooden cabinet, and it didn't sport any embossed lettering; that was the television. Helios is meant to be something like a Canadian branch of local reality's Sylvania, hence the /CA indicator.

*Yia-yia is Greek; according to Jilly, her grandma's coffee is second only to her mother's.

*Écoute, grouille-toé! basically means hey, listen, hurry up! If someone's in a nasty situation and drops formality while trying to raise someone on air, you might hear this one. The rest of the Quebecois translates fairly plainly.

*Yes, if you leave certain varieties of inexpensive coffee in the pot overnight and then heat it up the next day, it really can taste like liquid pencil eraser dust. Bleh!
chanter_greenie: a house and road blanketed in snow (Wisconsin winter: buried in snay)
In your own space, create your own challenge. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I'm reviving my tiny fandoms challenge from last year. That book that you adore but are sure no one else has heard of? That movie you and four other people saw in theaters? The television show you and a friend might've been the only ones in the country watching? They all need love too. My challenge is to go forth and make the teeny fandoms of the world a bit less teeny.

I really need to take up my own challenge...
chanter_greenie: a house and road blanketed in snow (Wisconsin winter: buried in snay)
In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Well, I for sure want to finish more of the Star Trek/Young Wizards stories I've got going. Valeris has a story in process that needs work yet, but it's on the list, that piece is complicated on several axes, and it's going to take a while before it's ready for the world to see. Demora has another story in the works so far, and that number may well increase. Mears does too, as does Chapel, and with Chapel's fic comes the majority of the original crew, senior and non, plus a trio of new friends--ah, movie spoilers! And you can bet there'll be more from Rand, Sulu, Excelsior and crew, with and without Demora involved - probably more without than with her, because early adventures wheeeee!

On another front, original poetry/prose needs to happen more this year. My Glitter Ship submission is getting published shortly eeeeee! but maybe I can get accepted again, or by another publication?

Third, I would love to find a wider audience for original works, orange!verse and otherwise. That's a tricky one, and I know it.

Last, finishing this slowly-percolating Band of Brothers 'Easy with languages in' fic is definitely a goal. It's a slooooow brew, darn it, but it is happening.
chanter_greenie: a house and road blanketed in snow (Wisconsin winter: buried in snay)
Commit an Act of Kindness. In your own space, share what you’ve done, talk about what you’ve done, or simply leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I did do this. I'm of the school of thought that holds that you keep random acts of kindness quiet, and that the more you talk about them, the closer they get to the performative appearance of kindness - wanting to be *seen* doing something, and applauded for it - as opposed to the genuine article. So I'm not saying what I did, other than to clarify that it wasn't the ongoing blood product donation thing; that one I'll yak about plenty. :)

Edited to add: This is, for the record, my own view on acts of kindness, and absolutely n-o-t intended to judge anyone else's intent. Your mileage and reasons may vary, I know it, and I realized after I'd posted the above that I should probably make that point clear. Yeeks!
chanter_greenie: a slightly faded picture of a three-legged torbie kitty cat with a lot of rust coloring in her fur (supermodel kitty)
An unexpected, pleasantly surprising double unit of platelets this morning meant I hit my 6-gallon donation mark one appointment earlier than expected. Yay! Red Cross west was busy for a Sunday morning, which is always good to see; more donors means, hopefully, fewer people dying or being miserable while alive, which I will never object to, ever, and if I do, anyone reading this and so inclined has permission to thwap me up side the head, virtually or in person. Met a pair of blood product transport volunteers while in the canteen after the donation was over, and as it turned out, they were a father- and son-in-law known to travel all over Wisconsin, Iowa and northern Illinois for that purpose. One hit 60 (yes, 6-0) gallons donated over the years, the other's currently at 105 (also not a typo) and going for the world record while he's still of age. I was boggled in impressed amazement. I still am.

Haven't done much with the latter handful of snowflake challenges, as I have no clue about a few and no brains for the others. The create a fanwork one is in sloooooow process, to happen eventually...

Unrelated to anything else, can the Chiefs please eliminate the dang Patriots next weekend? Seriously, I'm sick of seeing them win everything. Last year being the obvious exception, but since the Eagles just went out of contention...
chanter_greenie: a house and road blanketed in snow (Wisconsin winter: buried in snay)
In your own space, post self-recs for at least three fanworks that you created. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

See why I said squirm? :)

1:
All Through The Night
Babylon 5, late season 1, Winters/Sinclair but firmly in the realm of ace erotica, at least for the most part. Talia has a few daydreams that keep recurring. Warnings for the PsiCorps and their A+ views on human interaction, touch starvation related to the above, lots of tropes deliberately warped via daydreaming, some headcanon that I'm told is quite plausible, and one sneakity spoiler for season 4 that only makes sense if you've already been spoiled.

This story... was truly painful to write, see my end notes for why, and yet I adore it so. And if you've been reading this journal for a while, or if you otherwise know me, you might well understand what that's all about. I really was not going for a self-insert here, but...

2:
Ship Lights
Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country meets Diane Duane's Young Wizards series of books. Spoilers abound for the opening of the referenced movie. For the Excelsior and her crew, it's all about knowing how to turn, or trusting those who do.

This is one of the *counts* five Star Trek/Young Wizards crossovers I've posted so far, and knowing both series will definitely help with its intelligibility. I remain more proud than I likely should be of Sulu's narrative voice and viewpoint here. Plus, Rand is awesome (again/still), and everybody knows it, which is exactly how it should be.

3:
Lighted Display
Original poetry, set in the orange!verse Schrodinger's Heroes offshoot series. 30+ people, represented by as many light sources.

This is laced throughout with a zillion direct lifts from my own childhood, growing up quirky in small town east central/southern Wisconsin, and by that I mean light choices as well as characters. Ask me who Jilly, Mary, Gloria and Squirt both are and were, just to start. I know it likely means a lot less to the rest of the world. I should write out all the underlying stories to go with the light sources I picked for characters, really...
chanter_greenie: a house and road blanketed in snow (Wisconsin winter: buried in snay)
In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish
wish-list of sorts. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your wish-list if you feel comfortable doing so. Maybe someone will
grant a wish. Check out other people's posts. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.

... Oooookay. At risk of being greedy here... yeah, this is dang hard.

*AO3 kudos, comments, and the occasional bookmark. I have a handful of works over there; most of them are Star Trek/Young Wizards crossovers that rely on knowing both fandoms, and the other is rather a niche Babylon 5 story indeed, but if people like them, I'd love to know about it. I'm Chanter on AO3, which I initially forgot to say!

*A signal boost, if someone has a favorite story I've posted on DW. It could be one of the Trek/YW crossovers, one of the orange!verse series, something from my few sojourns into Ysabet's Terramagne, even that B5 story... whichever, really, just so long as the other person truly wants to raise it up.

*If anyone has an interest and the means to do something about it, I have a number of stories available for sponsorship by donation. There's a sticky post in my journal listing same. I will always be delighted if someone wants to sponsor one of my works, but I mean zero pressure here. Zero. <3
chanter_greenie: a house and road blanketed in snow (Wisconsin winter: buried in snay)
In your own space, promote three communities, challenges, blogs, pages, Twitters, Tumblrs or platforms and explain why you love them. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

One, [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith, for multiple poetry and prose series in fantasy, science fiction, and urban magic. Diverse, clueful superpowered people (Polychrome Heroics)! An autistic and otherwise neurodiverse political secession in space (An Army of One)! Families and friendships that respect everyone involved! And the Schrodinger's Heroes series that sparked my own orange!verse. Mind warnings where applicable.

Two, [personal profile] rix_scaedu, also for multiple series, including several highly intriguing looks into a post-apocalyptic Australia, and a near-past magical adventure in a country a fantastical sidestep from local China. Look for the Nai and Tang-Ji tags. :)

Three, [personal profile] aldersprig, for dark modern fantasies in several series, though that's by no means all she writes. Fe abroad in the world with better or worse intentions and comparatively few rules to bind them (Addergoole and the wider fe apocalypse 'verse), a magical mall with a wicked purpose (The Hidden Mall). Mind warnings where applicable, folks.

Edited to add: Oh shoot! I goofed, and thought one excellent author was another! *facepalms* Allow me to rectify that, by linking to [personal profile] lb_lee for, among other things, a take on California, generations post a different end of the world, where the power of belief is no silly confidence booster (Reverend Alpert). Also check out their story 'Shades of Sarah' if inclined toward heartwrenching, skillful fantasy with a distinct twist. Again, mind warnings where applicable, folks.
chanter_greenie: a house and road blanketed in snow (Wisconsin winter: buried in snay)
Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've interacted with and friend/follow them. Afterwards,
leave a comment in this post with the equivalent of "I did it!"

I'll leave a comment over there in a minute, because yes, I did it! There was language and song lyric nerdery at another person's journal. I hope they don't mind...
chanter_greenie: a house and road blanketed in snow (Wisconsin winter: buried in snay)
[community profile] snowflake_challenge day two. This is an especially fun one!

Rec at least three fanworks that you didn’t create. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable
doing so.

Seeking Shelters
by GuardianKarenTerrier. This is a fantastic, still-in-progress, multichapter Miraculous Ladybug fic, Chat Noir/Adrian-centric after said character flees his father's home, with the added complication of lingering cat and ladybug traits and with a view of the canon world and its characters' interactions that, like so many fics seem to in this fandom, rings even truer to life. As in, less cartoon, more live-action with top notch magical effects. In other words, this fandom's got some dang excellent authors in it! TW in here for disordered eating, dissociation, and some sensory issues, all on the part of Chat Noir, one episode of violence between akuma and heroes that, though incredibly effectively handled, does seem to go beyond canon levels, Gabriel Agreste's A+ marvelous :bleeped by a ladybug emoji: parenting, and if homelessness or runaways/running away are sensitive topics for you, this fic focuses heavily on both subjects.

Tower Of Babel
by Darkwood_Princess. And now for something completely different! Deep Space Nine's universal translators go kersplat. What follows is as enchanting in the reading as it is exasperating for most of the characters! Lovely, lyrical notes on the station staff's multilingualism through the ears of someone unused to remembering that multilingualism is a thing. Sisko speaks Kreyol! Bashir speaks Urdu! O'Brien is fluent in Gaelic! Squee!

Put Aside Fear For Courage
by SearchingforSerendippity. I know I recced this last year, but this is the fic that got me started on the whole Star Trek/Young Wizards crossovery fandom fusion thing, and it is pitch perfect for the original Enterprise's senior staff. Uhura, especially, still makes me squee and beam with joy. Bonus: Spot the masterful YW canon link!
chanter_greenie: a bright blue sky and fluffy clouds (Wisconsin summer: boundless friendly sky)
It's [community profile] snowflake_challenge time already? Whaa? Eek!

In your own space, talk about your Happy Place—the things that give you joy, calms you or keeps you sane. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it.
Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Fuzzy critter snuggles definitely qualify here. If I get the chance to be climbed on by a purring cat or three, or have a friendly dog in my lap, it absolutely brightens my day. Going out to DX, and the less horrible ambient noise the better, also qualifies; I've said before, and I'll say again, that radio time is one of the best ways I know to unwind. Radio time on a reasonably well-kept trail somewhere? That much nicer. I'm a Wisconsin green land gal, and I know it. And... I admit to occasionally going youtube sniffing and rewatching episodes of a handful of American and Canadian game shows from the late '80's/early '90's if things have gone to crap. Those are memories from when I was a tiny Chanter.
