Yes, you read that right.  I wrote Dollhouse fic.  I haven't seen the show in ages, nor have I so much as glanced at the fandom, so I hope this is A) in character and B) not retreading well-trodden territory.

Remix fics have been revealed, which means I get to claim my fic!  It amused me greatly to look at people's guesses from the poll.  I am apparently a tad transparent.  Anyhoo.  Enough chit-chat.

Today is my third LJ anniversary!  Happy anniversary to me.  And happy new year to all of my flisters!  Last night, I was in this bar and the bathroom walls were covered in graffiti.  All sorts of messages, but my favorite was easily this one: "I am a leaf on the wind.  Watch how I soar."  Someone had also written "RIP Wash" next to it, and another Browncoat had written some of the lyrics to "The Hero of Canton."  It was one of those little instances that made me happy to be a nerd.

Anyway, onto the year in fic.

the roundup )

Total: 12 fics, including random drabble-y things.  One remix, three crossovers, one multi-chapter fic.  Three as-yet-unwritten WIPs.  Approximately 26,300 words.

The reveal has gone up at [livejournal.com profile] pilots_presents , so I can claim my fic!  Woohoo!  Also I am inordinately pleased with myself because I got 12/18 guesses correctly.  I put way too much thought into this.  Anyway, here's the one I wrote.  Which was basically just an excuse for a huge nostalgia trip.

My [livejournal.com profile] intoabar  fic!  This is completely unbetaed.  Also surprisingly maudlin.  I'm not British, so if anyone notices mistakes in Jackie's speech, please let me know.  Title is from a line in Richard Thompson's beautiful "Waltzing's for Dreamers."

And we'll drink out old memories and we'll drink in the dawn.

Rating: PG
Warnings: No warnings needed.
Disclaimer: not mine, not for profit.
Characters/Pairings: Kara, Jackie, mentions of Kara/Lee
Summary: Kara really tries not to be approachable, tries not to look like anybody’s frakking shrink. So why is this woman practically crying on her shoulder?
AN: AU for the end of BSG.  No spoilers for anything.

Characters: Kara, Lee, Zak

Summary: Teenage Kara and Lee frolic in the snow.

For housekeeping purposes, I'm reposting two bits of fic that have been posted elsewhere in recent weeks.

The first is a snippet that I sent to [livejournal.com profile] kag523  for her "Guess the Author" game at no_takebacks a few weeks ago.  I wrote the scene a few months ago--it would have been the beginning of a fic, but then I decided not to write it after all (it was for [livejournal.com profile] bsg_remix , and I changed my mind about which story to remix).  Anyway, it's too long to be traditionally considered a drabble, but too short to be considered a ficlet so make of it what you will.

avow and affirm )

The second is a ficlet that I wrote for the All the Galactic Ladies Fic Battle at [livejournal.com profile] karathracelives .  You should go over there and write one too.

Title: Lessons
Character: Kara (with cameo by Socrata)
Prompt: learning to drive
Warning: it's weird and dark and mentions child abuse.

the first time Kara got behind the wheel of a car )
shah_of_blah: (never fade away)
I wrote these 100-word drabbles for a [livejournal.com profile] twelvecolonies  challenge.  In the interest of full disclosure, the second one is kind of inspired by another story of mine, a piece of original fiction that I'm currently slaving away on.  For my senior thesis, I'm writing a collection of short stories.  I haven't finished the first one yet so I've got plenty of work ahead of me.  As a result, there probably won't be a whole lot of fanfiction from this corner.  Although that didn't stop me from signing up for the [livejournal.com profile] intoabar  fication.

Well, the reveal has gone up at [livejournal.com profile] bsg_remix .  I half-heartedly tried to guess who wrote what, and was right about two of them, which is one more than last year!  Anyway, here's the story I wrote as a pinch-hitter.  It's crack, in case you can't tell from the title and, well, everything else about it.

Title: What Happens in the Conference Room
Characters: Kara, Cottle, Lee, Sam, Dee, Adama, Roslin, Billy, Tyrol, Helo, Sharon, Gaeta, Gaius

Beta: Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] ivanolix!
Author Notes: Like the original fic, this story is set in some wholly indefinable period of time in which all of these characters are alive, and some of them are married. Just go with it.

The Admiral's Support Group for Dysfunctional Families and Insubordinate Officers was the place to be.

OMG guys, this is pretty much the first fic (ficlets don't count) that I've posted since last summer!  I haven't gone that long without posting fic since I signed on for this lj thing.

Today is the start of a new decade (holy shit). And it's my second LJ Anniversary! The fandom's had its ups and downs, but is still a pretty chill place to be, in my book. I was not terribly productive in terms of writing this year, but that's okay! I may not have produced many stories, but I loved (almost) every one of those that I did. So! Onto the fic roundup business.

the roundup )


Total: Six fics, four ficlets, and one VSD. The longest is The Other Side (of This Life) at 4900. And the shortest is In White, with just 160 words. I also started two new fics and continued working on my plotfic this year. Yuppers. All together, I posted 17,042 words (not including the VSD as I can’t say how much of that was written by yours truly). I wrote more than that, but those stories are still very much in progress.


the review )

Status of my TV: 8 episodes of Dexter, 4 episodes of Dollhouse (which I am LOVING goddamnit), and I am now in the middle of the second season of The Big Bang Theory (it's like a drug).

Thank you, LJ, for eating this entry and making me redo all the html and whatnot.  Also for randomly devouring April through August.  Twice.

Title: Portraits

Rating: PG
Characters: Karl, Hera, Hot Dog, Tigh. And Kara Thrace.
Setting: post-finale
Word Count: ~1600

Summary: Some people don't fade away.

At first, Helo can't believe that she's gone. )

I'm posting the three ficlets I've written for [livejournal.com profile] karathracelives  over here for easy access.  And also because the third one is too long to post in a comment.

Title: To Call Your Own
Prompt: battlestars I have known

When you get your first battlestar posting straight out of flight school, the days until your new assignment seem like a curse. )

Title: Father's Day 
Prompt: father's day (what a surprise!)

When Kara was little, just five years old, she got tired of bedtime stories. )



Title: A Touch of Grace
Prompt: Kara takes ballet as part of her pyramid training
Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] visualthinker11  for the emergency beta!

Frak that. )
