Please keep in mind that these prompts are for guidance purposes only. Most of my likes are not shared by a lot of writers. I certainly don’t expect someone to go outside their comfort zone just because it’s something I would enjoy reading. And even though I may dislike something in general, I always keep an open mind. Well-written fluff or crack will not go unappreciated. Most of all, write what makes you happy. I know I’ll enjoy it too. And thank you so much for taking the time to write me a story.


Likes: I really like slash/p0rn (explicit or implied) and dark themes, hate-sex, rough-sex, sex-up-against-the-wall, non-con/dub-con, handcuffs/bound-hands, blindfolds, hair pulling and just about any of the different 'plays' (breath, knife, blood, etc.).

Dislikes: silly fluff or crack, sappy romance, any of the characters behaving out of character (without a good reason for it), het sex and explicit mention of girly parts (although I can’t see that happening in any of these fandoms with these characters).


Request 1: The Administration - Manna Francis

Characters: Val Toreth, Keir Warrick

Anything, explicit or not - if you offered these two then you know what they're like together. I don't care what you come up with as long as they stay in character. There can never be enough Administration stories! Throw in Carnac, Leo Warrick, or Carl Ruiz if you want – I love them all. Feel free to add Sara as long as there's no het sex.


Request 2: Don't Series - Jack L. Pyke

Characters: Jack Harrison/Martin, Gray Raul, Kes (Don't Series)

Not many people are aware of this series unless you like very dark slash. It’s a great series with lots of potential side stories. It would be a challenge to write something with these characters since they’re all so complex. Kes is a new character in the latest book. There's some sexual tension going on between "Martin" and Kes but it's never realized. A missing scene or AU where they do get together would be really hot.


Request 3: Dark Edge Of Honor - Aleksandr Voinov & Rhi Etzweiler

Characters: Andrew Miguel "Mike" Villanova, Sergei Stolkov, Pat (Dark Edge Of Honor)

This book has been out for several years but I only just 'read' it this year as an audio book. Although the main pairing is Mike and Sergei, I think the relationship between Sergei and Pat has a lot of potential for exploration because of Pat being Sergei's torturer. Sergei is clearly afraid of Pat when they meet later in the story - some dark hate-sex might work as an alternate scene. Or, perhaps a missing scene during the torture part. We know Mike intervened, but what exactly was said between Mike and Pat? And I don't think it's too far-fetched to imagine these characters in a threesome at some later point after the actual story ends, when Mike is supposedly retired. Mike knows so many 'secrets' that he has to be a target for kidnappers/interrogators. Perhaps Pat is sent to Mike to ensure that he won't ever be able to reveal what he knows.

Request 2: Spirits Series - Jordan L. Hawk

Characters: Vincent Night, Henry Strauss

I just finished the second book in this series and thoroughly enjoyed it. I liked their insecurities, their misunderstanding, and how they came together in the end. Maybe a scene of ‘moving day’, or how they adjust to life living together - sleeping over at someone’s home is much different than living there all the time. Or a new case for all of them to work on. I don’t mind if you include Elizabeth and Jo. I don’t need anything explicit as far as sex – I enjoy a good plotty story just as much and these two have so much potential.


Request 3: A Charm of Magpies - KJ Charles

Characters: Stephen Day, Lord Crane | Lucien Vaudrey

There’s some real potential for dark fic with this series. I don’t have a specific scenario in mind – explicit sex or something with a plot, whatever inspires you. I don’t mind any of the other characters being included either.

Most of all, write what makes you happy. I know I’ll enjoy it too. And thank you so much for taking the time to write me a story.

As a writer, I appreciate having a Yuletide likes/dislikes post for my recipient, so I thought I'd post one of my own in case it helps.

For those wanting to know more about the recent DDoS attacks, yes, it looks like it was the Russian government trying to shut down the dissidents again.

As I said last time, while it's frustrating not to have access, LJ is a lot more than a social network platform. From the article:

"LiveJournal isn’t just a social network. It’s also a platform for organizing civic action. Dozens of network projects and groups mobilize people to solve specific problems — from defending the rights of political prisoners to saving endangered historic architecture in Moscow."

So while I know many are considering the move over to Dreamwidth and other such sites, supporting LJ is a way we can help support those who use it for more than a writing/roleplaying/social venue.


Also, as a FYI, LJ is giving paid users effected by the outage two weeks of paid time as compensation.

If any of you are willing to help, my son has to do a survey for his 6th grade math class.  He chose favorite food.  If you'd like to respond, please just give me your answer in a comment.  They're screened for privacy.  I really do appreciate it!

(Sorry - I don't know how to do a fancy option button survey thingy!)

What type of food is your favorite? (Please choose one.)

1) Home-style (like hamburger, steak and potatoes)

2) Mexican

3) Oriental

4) Italian

5) Other (please specify if you'd like, in the comment)

To my Alex Rider friends, I saw this photo on the Internet, but it was all about Freddie Stroma and didn't mention Damian Lewis. That is Damian, right? With his wife. And Luna and Lupin too.

I'm writing a story in the Administration fandom for a private Yuletide exchange. I was searching Manna's website when I followed the link for First Against the Wall to her publisher.  What did I see listed along the right hand side of the page?

Release Date Februray 1, 2011 - For Certain Values of Family by Manna Francis. 

I love the cover too (all the Administration books have such artistic covers). 

February seems like such a long way away.

I've mentioned how much help my father-in-law has been during my radiation treatments, picking my son up from school.

He's big into genealogy, and recently sent me this news link for a talk he did.  His photo is in the article too.

A few years ago when my father visited here from Chicago, he and my mother-in-law accessed on-line copies of the 1920 census done here in San Antonio.  They found an entry where my father's father and grandfather had been staying in a rooming house here.  We hadn't even known our family had a connection to San Antonio.  I just moved here on my own in the 70's because I hate cold weather. 

And - HAPPY DH DAY!  I'm going to see it at the Alamo Quarry Theater at 12:20 p.m. with [livejournal.com profile] winoniel ! I wanted to take my son but he's in school and I didn't think putting 'To See Harry Potter 7' on the early out form would have been an acceptable reason.  I'll be taking him tomorrow instead.

I'm in need of someone I can ask questions about ordinary life in Russia.  I'm sorry for being so ignorant, but one thing I do love about LJ is that it gives me an opportunity to learn about other countries and cultures.

As an example, right now what I'm needing to know is:

1) What kind of holidays are traditionally celebrated, and are any celebrated with gift-giving? 

2) Are gifts given for birthdays? 

3) How are birthdays celebrated? (like we have cake and ice cream here, so is there some type of traditional meal/dinner or sweets?)

4) Are there any 'coming of age' special celebrations?

5) Is Christmas celebrated?

6) What would a typical team sport be that boys and girls would play in high school (basketball, baseball, soccer/football?)

7) At what age would the average person learn to drive?

These are the kinds of questions I have.  If anyone knows of a good source - book, website, magazine - that would be great too.

So I don't normally rec stories - there are just too many good ones out there, and really, most people on my flist have found them before I have.

But this one just caught me.  I started reading it yesterday and couldn't quit until I finished it today.  It's around 80k words.

A Dish Served Cold, by [livejournal.com profile] eurypon 

Partial here: http://www.fictionpress.com/s/2783664/1/A_Dish_Served_Cold

All 16 chapters here: http://www.ximerion.com/index.php/dish

Authors Summary: Andrew Ashton grows up in a world very similar to ours, but where slavery has been reintroduced. While trying to deal with growing up gay and looking for romance, the institution of slavery begins to intrude uncomfortably on his life.

Well I went and signed up for Yuletide again this year. I was back and forth on it, but I enjoyed the experience last year (even if my story was only read by three people) so thought I'd give it another go. The three fandoms I requested were Alex Rider – Yassen/Alex (no surprise there), Lord John Grey – George Everett/John Grey, and The Baker – Milo/Bjorn.

(Just when I'm starting to feel better, my 10-year-old son has a 103 temp and tested positive for the flu!)

So when I did my massive Team Snitch fic rec post, The Fourth Deathly Hallow by Gingertart had not yet been posted to the Games.  I hate to say any particular entry is my favorite, but this one is definitely in my top five.  It has the perfect mix of plot and characters and imagination and sexual tension and - I could go on and on.  I may be biased, not because it's a fic on my team but because I love Sherlock Holmes.

It's a long one (56k words) but it didn't seem that way at all.  The merging of the two worlds is cleverly done, and the twist at the end -  I should have been expecting but didn't.  Just look at the summary as an example of what to expect:

Summary: From the private journal of John. H. Watson MD; not intended for publication. Being an account of the strange case of the Fourth Deathly Hallow; in which Dr John H. Watson and Mr Sherlock Holmes save a life, discover the true secret of Professor Moriarty, unravel a time loop or two, encounter a femme fatale, imbibe potions, break into and out of a wizarding mansion, hide in a male brothel, go shopping, track down a magical artefact, almost attend a ritual sacrifice, fail to be Obliviated and totally ignore the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy of 1692, all in the company of a lank-haired, irascible but secretly besotted schoolmaster, a bemused aristocrat and an increasingly perceptive and enamoured young hero.

It's truly an incredible  and fun story.

I feel bad for taking so long to do this, but just as the Games started posting on Insane Journal, I got sick with pneumonia and a horrible cough. I've been doing good just to log in and check my inbox.

I'm still not up to par, but I've been doing really well in keeping up with the Games and thought I'd at least try and mention my fellow team member's fics here. The thing is, I'm pretty easy to please when it comes to the Games. I rarely get squicked by anything, and although het, mpreg, and gender-bender fics aren't my favorites, a fic with those things in them won't keep me from reading.

I still have several to read, but I doubt there will be any fics that I disliked. So as a rec post, I have to put them ALL here really.

But one in particular stands out for me - and I can't really say why exactly. Read more... )

I'm sorry to have to do this, but for now, I've had to make this journal friends only.

If you do not have a blank journal, and are of legal age to read adult fiction in your country, please leave me a comment as to how you found my journal and why you'd like to be friended, and I will friend you back.

~*~

Edited 2009-05-20: Sorry for any confusion to current friends.  I'm not planning on defriending or anything.  Since I locked everything away, I just wanted to have one public post where anyone new who wanted to be friended could request it.

Thank you, everyone, who are already my friends.  Fandom is great, and I appreciate your support.  I hope that this is just a temporary thing and I can go back to unlocking when the fanfic issues work out.

First, a big thank you to [personal profile] versaphile  for the invite code.

I just hate seeing this journal empty. I don't have time to import entries from LJ to populate it, so I thought I'd just make this litte post.

So does anyone know if importing entires will spam my flist/circle/whatever? I don't want to do that to people.

And until I learn about the circle/subscribe thing, I am just doing both to anyone I see who I know from LJ. I hope you don't mind.
