It's actually pretty cool to have done this every year. A good thing to look back on.
thalialunacy2: (Merlin: Destiny)
Title: You're Only in Trouble if You Get Caught
Fandom: BBC Merlin
Pairing: Merlin/Arthur
Summary: Wherein Arthur is a princess with ambition and Merlin is a dangly sorcerer who can’t help but nick things. Add in a marriage decree, an OAP named Gaius, a really complicated spell, and stir.

Genre: Canon-era fairytale AU, where everyone's pretty happy and gayness & magic are both on a kind of non-death-y don't-ask-don’t-tell level.
Prompt: Very loosely based on Disney's Aladdin, from which came the title.
Rating: R for sexual situations
Length: >15k

( Court is actually *more* boring as a noble than as a servant, something which Merlin quite honestly hadn't thought was possible. On the third day, as it goes on, and on, and *on*, he considers requesting a bit of embroidery to work on, as some of the other ladies have, but realises quickly that he'd be rubbish at it and give the game away. So he merely sits and tries not to fidget as Ceremonial Dagger Number Fifteen is given to Lord Whatsit for a thing he did in aught-thirty. )

Pairing: Chris Pine/Karl Urban
Rating: NC-17, yar.
Length: 5,360
Summary: A trip to the past, and three little words.
Warnings: Rimming, alcohol abuse, bros, uncouth language. A whole lot of cameos by guys I knew in college.

Notes: Well, here we are, y'all. At the end of a journey that started nearly seven years ago.

Upon first thinking 'huh, I should finish this', imagine my surprise when I looked at my FRAT BOY UNIVERSE doc (because I am excellent at titles) and a good chunk of it had already been written… not by me, but by my friends. So: Author Who Wishes to Remain Unnamed, [ profile] jazzy_peaches, [ profile] norfolkdumpling, [ profile] jennycarolyn, [ profile] tourdefierce, and jenforthewin-- I know it was a thousand years ago, but thank you. Anything funny in here was written by them, for sure. Giant thanks also to [ profile] agenttrojie and [ profile] janice_lester for not cringing TOO hard when I ask them things about New Zealand and then invariably get it wrong in execution. The two pictures that inspired me during this particular chapter are: Karl Urban the frat boy, and Urbine on a plane (or maybe train, IDK)

That's all, folks. Thanks for being along for the ride. <3

Title: The Man Who Held Up Atlas
Fandom: Star Trek (reboot)
Pairing: Jim Kirk/Leonard McCoy
Rating: R for language, violence, and adult situations
Length: 7,070 words
Summary: Five times Leonard McCoy fixed Jim Kirk’s back, and the one time he didn’t have to.
Warning: possible trigger of severe disregard for one’s own life and all that implies about one’s mental health.

Contains: Reverse chronology. Excessive schmoopiness, but bonus angst to balance it out. Cliches. Medical & canonical inaccuracies and fabrications (‘MAKING UP SCIENCE SINCE 1966’). Differing POVs. Happy ending (beginning?).
Disclaimer: Obvious lack of ownership is obvious. I make fun, not money.
Dedication: To my back. I’m sorry, buddy. Let’s make the future better than the past.
Sources/Inspirations/Etc: Brita and her chickens, [ profile] lord_colin and his McCoy, Fox Mulder, [ profile] jazzy_peaches for her insight on what a Jim Kirk midlife-crisis might look like, Memory Alpha and [ profile] canonisrelative (‘angst is my favorite color’) for knowing way too many numbers, and also for giving it a read-thru and telling me I didn’t suck.
Notes: Well holy cats. I started this story back in the heyday (2010, I’m guessing?) and re-found it, three-fifths done, while on a writing/knitting retreat with my mom in 2016. And man am I in love with it. <3_<3 And if you want to know my current headspace while finishing, put on this Ben Folds Tiny Desk concert.

thalialunacy2: (Leverage: knit cap Eliot)
and AO3 tells me it's my first thing since October of last year. o.O and it's not even really much of a thing. but it's [ profile] canonisrelative's birthday, and she threw this prompt at me ages ago, so I couldn't not. :D:D:D

nc-17 like you'd better believe
heavily featuring erotic asphyxiation as practiced in a loving D/s dynamic
(there's also schmoop, because thalia)

( Then there's the days like today, at the ends of weeks where Karl's been wearing a pair of headphones around his neck like a yoke, like it's too fucking much for him to deal with, like he needs the extra weight on such a precious place just to remember. The extra reminder of what could be. )

I got a really well-known author for my Merlin Remix assignment, and freaked out for a while. But in her note, she'd encouraged rare-pairs, and in my favorite story of hers, a side character was knitting, so... this happened.

Knit Two Together
Katie McGrath/knitting
Katie McGrath/Eoin Macken
background Colin Morgan/Bradley James

R for sexual situations

Summary: In which there is a lot of laughing and blushing and geekery, as Katie tells her knitting circle a story of handmade love.

AND AND the person who got me remixed my Regency!Merthur and did an AMAZEBALLS JOB. Seriously. So, so good.

Title: The Envy of All I See
Fandom: Star Trek (reboot) RPF
Pairing: Chris Pine/Karl Urban
Rating: R for Chris's potty mouth and some smoochin'.
Length: 2,877 words.
Genre: Twee rom-com.
Summary: Karl makes ridiculous faces. Chris pretends it doesn't bother him. Zach is smarter than the rest of them combined.
Dedication: [ profile] norfolkdumpling, this is for you. <3 (I was gonna write you something with Karl in eyeliner, but this was just begging to be finished. Hope you don't mind. ^^)

Notes: This fic was started & nearly finished way back in the day (2011). I have no idea why it was abandoned, but I found it again, and just in time for a very amazing lady's birthday.
Disclaimer: Obvious fictional content in fictional. Please, please don’t sue me. And don’t be hatin, we just like the fuckin.
Credits/Sources/Inspirations/Etc: It all started with this picture, obvs, which led to a prompt from the lovely [ profile] 3_foot_6, which, yes, I already filled once, which might've been why this one was abandoned, come to think of it. But I like this one a lot, too, and some girl had a birthday, so. The title is, indeed, from Fiddler on the Roof. Thanks to [ profile] jazzy_peaches & [ profile] starsfell & the crew on Tumblr. Source credits go to When Harry Met Sally…, and, as always, Aaron motherfucking Sorkin.

( Chris notices first. )
thalialunacy2: (C/K: Chris fucking loves him)
I wrote a bit every day for the 12 days of Christmas, posted to the Urbine tumblr, and here's the result. I did not expect it to be so... long, or full of porn, but there you go. I just can't stop with these two.

Because although I'm writing right now, it won't count until after the first of the year. SO. WITHOUT FURTHER ADO, THE YEARLY FIC ROUND-UP MEME. )
thalialunacy2: (C/K: THAT is a shared moment)
I KNEW this would happen as soon as I had free time. Time in which I should be doing Real Things.

To be fair, I woke up, read a real book, balanced my checkbook, paid bills, wrote emails, THEN wrote this. And I SWEAR I'll not write any more until I've done some more Things.

Title: And I Give That Hope Your Name
Fandom: Star Trek (reboot) cast RPF
Pairing: Chris Pine/Karl Urban
Rating: R for language.
Length: 1,312 words.
Genre: First time.
Summary: Chris hates words right now. Really a lot.

AO3 Works Stats, now in handy top 5 form )

So that's a pretty good segue into a thing I've been figuring out -- I'm taking a break from writing. I think I'm going to finish [ profile] reel_merlin but I'm honestly not sure. It's stressing me out, and if I'm not doing it for money then it's not worth the stress. I need to not let my sense of self-worth be based on the response to my fanfiction, which it largely is right now. Trek fandom built it up, bless them, and now I am falling hard flat on my face. And that sucks. And the rest of my self-esteem is not helped by reading other people's amazing romantic fiction, while I sit here alone and unwanted.

Plus, reality calls. You would not believe the amount of knitting I have to do. XB
thalialunacy2: (Team Envy: Awe & then Some)
This week was not much, lol, considering all the things going on.

Bonus Challenge was about DRINKING and of course I had to get kind of melancholy:

It's tradition. One of those traditions that started three years ago, maybe, but you really can't remember, because you're all thirty-something and those days of starting seem inexcusably long ago, even when they were just last week. And you're never really sure who started it, because they all could've, at moments in their lives, moments you were mostly there for and can see on each other's faces. And you never know who's going to start it because you can look around at all of them, all the people you call family, standing on a porch or around a kitchen counter, fags in hand on a bad day, eyes narrowed by drink and smoke and tiredness, arms slung over shoulders and around waists: huge Perce next to tiny Gwen, Gwaine's slightly sweaty hair and Arthur's drink-slack jaw, Leon's benevolent smiles and Elyan's protective eye, and you see them all swaying to the inescapable one-two-three, and you find you are, too. And then you will raise your glass with them, and bellow it out: 'THEY'RE SHARING A DRINK THEY CALL LONELINESS / BUT IT'S BETTER THAN DRINKING ALONE.'

Because it is.

'Piano Man' by Billy Joel

The actual challenge was a toughie. It was canon-era, with one 'tweak' allowed. I... am a hardnose bitch about canon, so I wrote Arthur/Gwen, which has been an OTP of mine since I was ten. It fulfilled a need I've had for a while. And I know at least one person voted for it, and I am content with that.

In Memoriam
In which Queen Gwen dreams of her late husband.
R for sexual situations and generally being depressing.
