Fic: The Rarest Thing In The World
pretty morgana
nianeyna
Title: The Rarest Thing In The World
Author: [personal profile] nianeyna
Fandom: The Elderlings Series by Robin Hobb
Characters/Pairings: FitzChivalry Farseer, The Fool
Spoilers: For the Farseer and Tawny Man trilogies
Word Count: 3500
Author's Notes: Eternal thanks to miarr and dreamwaffles for beta and cheerleading services. I realize this is a somewhat, ah... niche fandom, with which most of my flist will be unfamiliar. I've made no particular effort to make the fic understandable without having read the books. However if you're interested it should still be readable, though it won't have the same emotional resonance. Extended author's notes can be found here.

I told staple_madness about bendingsignpost's excellent The World on His Wrist, and she asked for a link. Me being... the way I am... this turned into a trawl through my pinboard account looking for Sherlock fics she probably hadn't read yet. So, here! Have a recs list.

In no particular orderCollapse )

And there you have it! Sorry I was too lazy to like, write down the author's names and note pairings and warnings and stuff. You'll just have to make do with my ~carefully chosen~ excerpts and/or half-assed reviews.

GUYS GUYS LOOK WHAT [personal profile] pi MADE FOR ME!


A Treasure Planet fanvid for my very own! By the way if you haven't seen this movie you need to fix that, stat. It is basically the most delightful swashbuckling adventure you have ever seen, with added ~FEELINGS. Also my crush on Captain Amelia can be seen from Montressor Spaceport. SERIOUSLY THOUGH DO NOT PASS GO, DO NOT COLLECT 200 DRUBLOONS.

This has been a public service announcement.

LOL WHAT
pretty morgana
nianeyna
so the wireless on my mom's laptop wasn't working

and she went HERE NIA FIX IT

there was absolutely nothing wrong with it idek

but THE POINT OF THIS STORY IS

I went on google to check

and one of the frequent searches is... my username...

I don't know, it's not like I've gone to any great pains to keep my internet identity separate from my real one? Not since high school anyway. Still, it's weird to know your mom is lurking on your journal. And more importantly on your delicious bookmarks, which in my case are a sometimes really unfortunate window to my psyche. HI MOM, you should like, stop lurking creepily and say hello sometime! XD

All my fic has officially been moved to the AO3! That took way longer than it should have, considering I've only published seven fics. OH WELL. In my defense, some of them had incredibly wonky html.

Fair warning: when I say "all my fic" I really do mean "everything I have ever published to the internet." TREAD WITH CAUTION. D:

OH MY GOD

I am currently eating the most fucking delicious -

Wait. No. Back up. Okay, so there's this recipe. And obviously when I saw it I thought - I must have that bread. I will have that bread.

So I made it. (Cut for many pictures that I took with my phone.)Collapse )

And that's what I did with my evening.

So uh
pretty morgana
nianeyna
Would anyone be interested in beta/cheerleading this Inception college au commentfic (I know, I know, what even is my life)? I feel kind of ridiculous asking for help with something THIS SILLY, but honestly I just need someone to bounce ideas off of. Because I feel like there's more to the story, but I'm at a loss as to what that, uh, actually is. Plus, I frequently have attacks of OH MY GOD THIS IS TERRIBLE WHY AM I INFLICTING IT ON THE WORLD*, and I need somebody to tell me whether or not I should keep writing.**

*this is why I've only posted like, five fics in as many years.

**if the answer is, "no, please wrap this shit up as quickly as possible because no one is interested" THAT'S FINE TOO. XD


In other news, I'm getting a massage today! :D :D :D FINALLY. It's gotten to the point where I literally can't relax my shoulders. I love my laptop absolutely to bits, but carrying it around all the time is HELL on the back, you know? Plus there's all the schoolbooks, and the fact that sitting at a computer is also bad for the posture, especially since I have no appropriate chairs.

COOKIES
pretty morgana
nianeyna
so, apparently today everyone decided to make cookies. IDEK, MY FLIST SUDDENLY EXPLODED WITH SUGARY GOODNESS, DON'T ASK ME. Anyway, I kind of wanted to make cookies, but I'm... lazy... so I just, like, replaced all the cup measures in my chocolate chip cookie recipe with tablespoons and made a single serving of cookie dough (okay it was probably more like three or four servings, WHATEVS I DO WHAT I WANT). So... POST YOUR COOKIE RECIPES IN THE COMMENTS! :D :D :D I'll edit this post with my chocolate chip cookie recipe when I get back to my apartment, because I'm pretty sure you'll want more than just the proportions of flour, butter, and sugar, which is all I could remember off the top of my head. Which, I mean, it makes for pretty good cookie dough in a pinch, but it probably wouldn't turn out too well if you tried to actually bake it.

WIP Amnesty!

meme, ganked from lemniciate!

When you see this, post an excerpt from as many random works-in-progress as you can find lying around. Who knows? Maybe inspiration will burst forth and do something, um, inspiration-y. Or maybe someone could kick my arse into gear because at least one of these has to be finished by the end of the year. :/


In my case I have set a personal goal, this auspicious NaNoWriMo, to finish or at the very least make significant progress on at least one of my wips - since, as you'll soon see, starting new things is really not a problem for me. Finishing them, on the other hand... well, that would be why there's not much fic posted to this journal.

If you guys could like, tell me which of these if any is not a total disaster and would be worth continuing on with, that would be lovely. ♥

Merlin, Mercedes Lackey, Hobbdom, Hornblower, and Supernatural fic excerpts belowCollapse )

That's not actually all of them (and ohgod, let's not even get into the topic of my original fic wips, because they are many and full of failure), but it's almost all of them and I'm tired and have work in the morning. So, thoughts? tl;dr?
