Just Finished: Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel. I picked this up on a whim yesterday, and honestly read the whole thing today with very few breaks. Great Sci-Fi, with amazingly interesting characters and a really compelling narrative device. Absolutely amazing, and I'd definitely recommend it.

Currently Reading: I have literally just started the Goblet of Fire by JK Rowling. Which isn't one of my favourites, as I recall, but I'm sure that I'll have fun rereading it anyway!

Coming up: oh, this question! Um. The answer is, as ever, that I don't really know. But maybe The Unknown by KA Applegate, which is yet another Animorphs book and was quite good when I last reread it!

Look, a Writing Meme!

Stolen from lost_spook. Give me a number or two and I'll try to answer the questions! And not fall down a hole for another few weeks, oops. My ao3 is here.

1. How did you come up with the title to [insert fic]?
2. Any of your stories inspired by personal experience?
3. What character do you identify with most?
4. Is there a song or a playlist to associate with [insert fic]?
5. If you wrote a sequel to [insert fic], what would it be about?
6. Care to share a favorite hurt/comfort fic?
7. Care to share a favorite crack fic?
8. How would you describe your style?
9. Do you have a guilty pleasure in fic (reading or writing)?
10. Write or describe an alternative ending to [insert fic].
11. What's the angstiest idea you've ever come up with?
12. What's the weirdest AU you've ever come up with?
13. Got any premises on the back burner that you'd care to share?
14. Is there a fic you wish someone else would write (or finish) for you?
15. How do you begin a story--with the plot, or the characters?
16. Are you what George R. R. Martin would call an "architect" or a "gardener"? (How much do you plan in advance, versus letting the story unfold as you go?)
17. Do you have any discarded scenes/storylines/projects?
18. Are there any writers (fanfic or otherwise) you consider an influence?
19. Any fandom tropes you can't resist?
20. Any fandom tropes you can't stand?
21. A pairing you might like to write for, but haven't tried yet.
22. A secondary (or underrated) character you want to see more of in fic?
23. Do you like more general prompts, or more specific ones?
24. A character you enjoy making suffer.
25. A character you want to protect.
26. Major character death--do you ever write/read it? Is there a character whose death you can't tolerate?

Coming up: hm. Probably the Reaction. Which is the next Animorphs book by KA Applegate

TrickorTreatEx Letter

Hello, lovely writer, and welcome to my TrickorTreatEx letter! I've been hovering around this exchange for a few years now, and have finally decided to do it this year. I'm really excited! I love fluff and I love creepy stuff, and so as long as you avoid my squicks (and preferably my dislikes) I should love whatever you write for me!

Fic Likes: Fusions (especially Harry Potter/Hunger Games/Daemon/A:TLA based, or anything on this list), AUs of pretty much any kind (excepting slavefic and A/B/O), badasses in love, smut (my major kinks include biting, bloodplay, voices breaking in sex, talkative characters, anything oral, totally consensual rough sex, xeno, robosexuality and usually composed characters COMPLETELY LOSING THEIR COOL), the entire Enemy Mine trope, fake relationships/fake marriages becoming real, huddling for warmth, sex pollen, first times, supernatural creatures (I'm especially fond of vampires, but also love ghosts and zombies and werewolves and pretty much all of the weirder supernatural creatures), aliens, female characters, fluff and badass action stuff.
Fic Dislikes: A/B/O, Slavefic, mpreg, anything scat/waterplay related, mind control, completely dismissing female characters, issuefic and unrequested incest.
Fic Squicks (as in: will almost certainly not read fic if it includes these): Rape/Non-con, bestiality, Severe underage (anybody under 14 for this exchange), abuse (especially abuse presented as romantic), relationships being broken up within the fic and infidelity.

All of these are requests for fanfic, just as a heads up! And now, on with the show. :D

Thank you for reading! And I look forward to your fic. :D

FemslashEx 2016 Letter

Hello, dear writer, and welcome to my FemslashEx letter! I really adore femslash, but rarely get to focus on it as much as I'd like to. I'm thus really looking forward to this exchange, and all the possibilities within it! I love literally all of the pairings here, and would be extremely excited to receive fic for any of them. As long as you avoid my squicks (and preferably my dislikes too) I'll probably end up absolutely adoring anything you write for me!

On the subject of squicks (and dislikes (and, far more importantly than either, likes))...:

Fic Likes: Fusions (especially Harry Potter/Hunger Games/Daemon/A:TLA based, or anything on this list), AUs of pretty much any kind (excepting slavefic and A/B/O), badasses in love, smut (my major kinks include biting, bloodplay, voices breaking in sex, talkative characters, anything oral, totally consensual rough sex, xeno, robosexuality and usually composed characters COMPLETELY LOSING THEIR COOL), threesomes/moresomes, polyamory, the entire Enemy Mine trope, fake relationships/fake marriages becoming real, wingfic, huddling for warmth, sex pollen, first times, female characters, fluff and badass action stuff.
Fic Dislikes: A/B/O, Slavefic, mpreg, anything scat/waterplay related, mind control, completely dismissing female characters (unlikely here, but just to play safe!), issuefic and unrequested incest.
Fic Squicks (as in: will almost certainly not read fic if it includes these): Rape/Non-con, bestiality, Severe underage (anybody under 14 for this exchange), abuse (especially abuse presented as romantic), relationships being broken up within the fic (I'm fine with 'getting back together' narratives!) and infidelity.

Now, onto the femslash! :D

Thank you for reading, and I hope you enjoy writing my fic as much as I'm going to enjoy reading it! :D

Just Finished: Wolverine and the X-Men, vol 1. Which... I think it's just time to admit I don't like Jason Aaron.

Currently Reading: Just started Thors, because hope springs eternal?

Coming up: Hm. Probably another Animorphs book depending on the post? The Stranger is next, I think.

15 Memes

Stolen from lost_spook! I'll be leaving this up for about a week or so, so feel free to ask stuff until then. :)

1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask your f-list to post questions in the comments. For example: "One, nine, and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?", "Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?", "Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?"

3) After your f-list has stopped asking questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.

After an accidental break, as a result of having to go to training! <<

Just Finished: Animorphs: the Encounter. I'm steadily rereading these, and am pleased by how well they hold up.

Currently Reading: Starman, vol 10: Sons of the Father. It's so good and I'm so not ready for this series to be done. ;;

Coming up: IDK. I'd like to say Animorphs: the Message, but that entirely depends on the post!

Ask the Magic Meme

Stolen from endeni. Ask me any of the following questions, by leaving a number or just posting the question, and I will answer them in the comments
