You can also find me/my fic on: Dreamwidth, AO3, and Tumblr

Star Wars
You do it better (AO3) Rey, the things you learn growing up on Jakku
Rey on Jakku (random short bit)
Living is harder(AO3) Rey, post-The Force Awakens, culture shock.
Plant Assembly Procedures (AO3) Rey learns how plants work

Leverage
The Breakout Job (AO3) Parker helps a friend of Josie's (remember Josie the baby car thief?) to break out of a "camp for troubled youths"

Hunger Games
Surely these are the last days
The Rebellion from Below: A series of n+1 stories about the rebellion as told by its less-glamorous instigators (D9 and D6 focused). Stay tuned, if you're interested. (AO3 series)
Tractors turning the multiple furrows in the vacant land (AO3) The beginnings
The line between hunger and anger (AO3) No turning back now.

Smiles and Promises
Rokia, an OC victor from District Six
I wrote an initial version where Rokia wins the 68th and has terrible mentors, found here. Then we decided Rokia should be part of lorata et al.'s canon divergence 'verse, so she wins the 71st and has Phillips (originally from Lorata's Avenger Games crossover AUs, remixed through my headcanon) as a mentor. Lyme semi-mentor-adopts her, she builds stuff with Wiress and Beetee, helps in the rebellion, and then moves in with Lyme in District Two. (AO3 series)

Please feel free to take this personally
Johanna (who I headcanon as winning the 66th Games), her friendship with Finnick (bffs, not sexy), and them getting involved in the Rebellion. Johanna is a tough character--these all come with warnings for drug and alcohol abuse, PTSD, forced prostitution, and bad coping mechanisms generally. (AO3 series)

Ain't nothing but a family thing
Stories from District Four (Finnick/Annie) (AO3 series)
click for linksCollapse )

I also ramble periodically about my Panem headcanons. I try to tag these posts absurd logistics of Panem (because the more you think about it, the crazier this fictional dystopia really is)

On trigger warnings: Stuff on AO3 is (hopefully!) well-tagged. For stuff posted here, I haven't tagged specific trigger warnings in most cases, although for stories that are particularly in need of such, there are usually warnings in the intros. This is the Hunger Games universe so very often there are references to violence and forced prostitution and dealing with the aftermath of both, including PTSD. Rokia's childhood comes with drug use and child abuse/neglect warnings. If you're wondering if something is going to bother you (trigger-wise or anything else-wise), please feel free to message me and ask. I promise I don't bite.

OK so…it depends. At first, Rokia doesn’t really have any kind of relationship with people who aren’t Lyme. And Misha is very…Herself, she takes up space and is a little wild and pretty much unapologetic. And that’s not a problem, per se (I mean, most of that is also true of Sara), but it’s kind of overwhelming, especially at the beginning.

Rokia and Devon actually get to know each other first, because Lyme sets them up on Art Playdates. Rokia learned to draw on mechanical stuff but she’ll sketch people or landscapes or whatever sometimes (idk much about art so…no details, sorry). And Devon has his paint wall, and Rokia is less nervous when she has something to do with her hands, so it works out.

Going back into the random writing archives, here’s 2 things that have Rokia and Misha in them (cut for long)

random unedited bitsCollapse )

ladies who among us isn’t full of rage, just apocalyptically angry at all times


It’s there, smoldering under a layer of soil.

Smoldering, because it’s been starved of oxygen for so long.

Still hot, you’ll burn your fingers if you dig down deep.

You uncover the embers and they scream into life, bright and blinding

Until

Get a bucket of sand, push the flames back down where they belong, hidden so they can’t hurt anyone

But down underground they are still reaching out

tendrils of heat and smoke

turning wood into charcoal

And charcoal burns hotter than wood

It takes a breath of air and burns bright

keeps burning and

burns to

ash. Can’t burn, can’t breathe

not like a fire, or a tree

Just blows, drifts on the wind

You breathe it in and it scrapes your lungs

Because even burned to ash

Even when there’s nothing living left

I will reach out

with short-bitten fingernails

And tear at whatever piece of you I can reach

the title was a tumblr post that crossed my dash several times, and then it decided it needed to be a poem.
i dunno man don't ask me I just work here

In which I ramble at some length about worldbuilding for a story I am apparently writing now because it ate my brain:

The story that literally started with a fantasy title generator memeCollapse )

For my own future reference, because even though I "didn't get anything done" I actually did a lot of stuff.

I wrote a total of 178901 words in 2017.

monthly total word counts

There’s a lot of month-to-month fluctuation, and a lot of fluctuation in what I wrote: things that took over my brain (April is mostly that one where Allie has a baby…) and things with deadlines (November is almost all the Parker fic for the Leverage Big Bang) and things I actually planned to write (the rebellion stuff). Toward the end of the year I also did a bunch of haphazard research for the Moss and Rain story I am actually going to write (I hope).

I also wrote for more fandoms this year: Hunger Games is still the bulk of it, but I also wrote another Leverage fic, a Star Wars Rose and Rey one-shot, a Stranger Things bit about Eleven, and started a Dragon Age II f!Hawke/Isabela fic (which I need to finish….).

It was a hard year. So mostly I’m just glad I kept writing.

AO3 statistics for 2017Collapse )
