[sticky post] Master Fiction List

Author's Note: I'm always open to comments and suggestions on ways to improve my stories and my writing. From letting me know about typos and formatting errors, to pointing out plot holes and canonical errors, I say "Bring it."

Fic Rating System

My rating system is based on the one used by the Motion Picture Association of America (they have fewer than in Canada) but the descriptions are all mine. If you think I have given a story an incorrect rating, tell me why in a PM and I'll consider it. I'll also let you know what I decide and why.


GGeneral: Contains no swear words, scary situations, violence or sexual content.

PGParental Guidance: May contain mild swear words and scary situations but no violence or sexual content. Contains few to no difficult or disturbing issues.

PG-13Parental Guidance; not recommended for anyone under the age of 13: Contains swear words and scary situations. May also contain violence or sexual content. May address difficult or disturbing issues in a light-hearted manner.

RRestricted: Contains explicit language or extremely scary situations. Probably contains violence or sexual content. May address difficult and disturbing issues in a serious manner.

NC-17No Children; age 17 and up only: Contains explicit language or sexual content, terrifying situations, and extreme or graphic violence. May address difficult issues in a serious or disturbing manner.

Another Recut Trailer

Mad Max + Happy Feet = Mad Feet (& awesome!)

To all my f-listies...

A Canadian classic.

Benefits of Unemployment...

Unfortunately, it's not finishing my novel. I have a hard time writing when I'm worried about covering the rent. =(

No, it's the ability to watch whatever I like on the internet. I am currently working through socio-political and philosophical videos, which have confirmed that I am not a believer in religion. I am not opposed to people believing what they believe, as long as their religious beliefs do not compel them to harm anyone or to limit the rights of others to live and believe however they choose.

Cut for length...Collapse )

Birthday Wishes!

More Awards!

Two more of my stories have won Supernatural Fan Fiction Monthly Awards, and I am very, very proud!

There's a Hole in the Fabric of My Reality and Start Me Up.

At this rate I'm going to run out of stories to be nominated. 

Birthday Wishes to...

Hope you have a great one. 

Update on Green Grass of Home

This makes me happy! =D

Because it's a better procrastination than Freecell

Creative Blahs and Avoidance Techniques

Recently my creativity has been unhappy with my work hours (or maybe just my completely icky work), and writing on the bus isn’t as easy as it used to be.

Reading on the bus, however, is just as satisfying as it ever was.

I’ve been on a Captain America kick (with forays into the general MCU). Light on angst and Stucky (sorry, shippers), and high on humour and happy endings (or no endings at all in a couple cases). Here, only loosely organized, are the ones I’ve liked the most.

So this represents some but not all of what I’ve been reading (rereading in some cases) and enjoying. If you check any of them out, I hope you enjoy them, too....Collapse )

Bday Wishes

To my LJ pals garinarayne and sophiap. I hope you each enjoyed the day in the way you wanted.
Summary: When Sheriff Stilinski stopped Allison, she said “I’m not like this” meaning she wasn’t a crybaby. What if it meant something different? What if she didn’t buy Kate’s justifications, and told the sheriff that Derek Hale was being tortured in the basement of his old house?

Disclaimer: I make no claims on the characters, and make no money from this work (unfortunately). This story was written for fun and should be read the same way. If you want to share this story, please link to it back here. If you find it on any site other than AO3 or fanfiction.net, please let me know.

Chapter 7:  Thrones Are for Lesser Beings

Allison defends her convictions. The sheriff asserts his authority.

[ on AO3 ] or [ on ff.net ]
Nearly done with this story, although a couple plot bunnies are bouncing around my brain.

As a boost to my writing brain, I received back reader's comments for a couple of my scripts (I submitted to the Austin Film Festival and posted a script on The Blacklist). They were positive, and both mentioned my character building specifically. I am now feeling the warm fuzzies...

---------------

Chapter 6:  The Wheel of Fate has Rusty Cogs

Not everybody wants to meet Peter. Peter doesn't care.

[ on AO3 ] or [ on ff.net ]
Chapter 5:  Courtesy is a Veneer on Everyday Survival

The sheriff talks to Chris, Chris talks to his sister, and Stiles makes labels because it's better than breaking into crime scenes. And Peter can smell his enemies.
