Fic Rec

tmbreck: Well, as sane as can be expected. (thought you'd be happy for me)
We have a first time happening on LJ here: [personal profile] velvetwhip is posting Spuffy fic. More than that, it's Spuffy fic that I'm actually enjoying. Scary, huh? Now for the details:
Come Pouring Down Unified [locations: livejournal or personal archive]
author: [personal profile] velvetwhip
pairing: Angel(us)/Willow, Buffy/Spike
rating: FRAO
summary: *Set post NFA* In the aftermath of the final battle, Willow, Angel, Spike, and Buffy are faced with the challenge of what to do when the war is over.
why: I have the privilege of beta'ing this, so I've read ahead of what's been posted. Trust me, this a realistic and mature look at all four characters and both pairings. It's Spuffy that could be lasting while keeping both characters, IMO, in character.


In other news, two days until my birthday!!! For a refresher to any planning on churning out something quickly for me (or giving me a late gift, which I love as well), here's my list again:

My list: still very long. )

tmbreck: Well, as sane as can be expected. (relevant to my interests)
There's a fic out there, it's Star Trek AOS, and it involves McCoy and a plant. It was a gift from some aliens, it has sex with him in his sleep, and I can't remember what it's called.

...

Why do I not have this bookmarked? Does anyone know which fic it is?
tmbreck: Well, as sane as can be expected. (Default)
Do something, I'm bored! I also can't write because every couple of minutes my children come and bug the ever loving crap out of me.

Is it almost time for school to start up again?

tmbreck: Well, as sane as can be expected. (Default)
It's 3369 words long; I don't wanna read over it again to see how many times I skipped words, used the wrong words, and murdered the English language.

I need a pre-beta beta, someone who feels they need to suffer, because my beta doesn't deserve to have to suffer though a rough-draft.

Fuck it, if you don't hear from me in a few hours, send help, the fic has eaten me alive and my kids will need someone to make them breakfast in the morning.

After much discussion with my beta ("Break that shit up!" "Yes, ma'am") I've decided that this chapter needs to be split in two and both parts fleshed out. This fic, which was going to be(at most) 5 chapters, is looking down the barrel of 6 or 7. My muse has issues staying around for that long.
tmbreck: Well, as sane as can be expected. (suffering)
Y'all are going to get tired of hearing from me soon.

I'm thinking about taking Kirk/McCoy and all incarnations there-of (save in threesomes) off my subscription list on delicious, simply because it overwhelms my list. Seriously, I love the pairing as well, but can we get some variety?

Does anyone else listen to music when they write? If so, what music do you listen to?

In other news, I'm kinda having fun with the notes feature on LJ, I just wish that the notes didn't show up on my comment page. It messes up the layout a bit. I like long notes. And now, a scene (unbeta'd):

Tonya strides out the back door and deep into the unkempt field beside her grandfather's house. She stops when she believes no one will be able to hear her, firmly plants her feet shoulder-width apart, and raises her two middle fingers to the sky in a gesture of rage and frustration, shaking as she screams, "Fuuuuuuuck yooouu!"

Dropping her hands to her sides and taking a deep breath, she turns and heads back into the house, bound and determined to finish the damn chapter and chop out some of the unnecessary smut. It's the wrong damn ship for the story.
tmbreck: Captain Kirk - Charilie X (manly strut)
As some of you might know, you can find all of my recs here at my delicious account. At the bottom of those post will be a copy/paste thing for you to comment with if you want me to read something and maybe put it on my rec list in the future.

Some of these are older, some of them may be newer. Shall we begin?

Just playing with the crossposting feature on Dreamwidth.

Also, while going through stuff at my grandpa's house, I found a deck of UNO. It's been so many years since I've played that game. I'll have to see if I can find the rules online so I can play it with my daughter.
tmbreck: Well, as sane as can be expected. (thought you'd be happy for me)
When Gods Collide [AtS/BtVS, Illyra, Willow, implied Angel/Willow, FRC, written for [livejournal.com profile] monicaop]
At my personal archive.
At InsaneJournal.
At Dreamwidth.
At my writing journal.
At nha_fic.


In other news, I just realized that my Dreamwidth account ([personal profile] tmbreck) could be read as Too Much Breck. You'd tell me if there was too much of me, yeah? :)

Also, I'm trying to decide if I should bookmark my fic posts to communities in my delicious account if I'm only linking in those posts to other sites with the fic. I'm thinking not, as you usually don't have comments on those posts. I did, however, save them to my memories so that I knew which communities I was posting to. I didn't save the posts where I put the actual fic, because I have those already bookmarked in delicious. See how organized I am?

However, I am trying to figure out which communities I should post my fic to. And I should actually try posting them to Dreamwidth and Insanejournal communities, as well. And, of course, I need to hunt down a Star Trek beta as my long-term beta is not in the fandom and hasn't watched the show/movies anytime recently. Does anyone know of a place I can go to get Star Trek specific betas where it's pretty straight-forward how to do it? I'm looking for someone who's willing to beta no matter the pairing, character, and squick/trigger factor. I have a feeling I'm going to be going dark with many a character and pairing... If I manage to keep writing.

Speaking of fic; McChekov? Killing me here.

How is everyone's morning going?
tmbreck: Well, as sane as can be expected. (girls like girls)

I'm going to be leaving for Ohio February 8th. Given how much short notice this is, and that I only have about a week or so to prepare (including paperwork and switching my daughter's schools), I'll be going on a hiatus. This means no Write Every Day posts. Check out my calendar:

This means that the first eight [8] challenges submitted to my site will get filled (hopefully) by the end of February. There are some rules:
  1. In the summary list [characters not listed that you want];[possible word prompt];[possible quote/lyric prompt]
    1. ex: Willow; black; Winter that year was strange and gray.

  2. You can only use the categories all ready listed at my site.
    1. The exception is for Crossovers. Those can be between any two of the categories list, including original. Just list it in the summary if a crossover category doesn't exist.
    2. I cannot fill prompts for co-writing, obviously.

  3. Feel free to add any characters you need to in the summary if they are not listed.

  4. There is no 4.

  5. If you are absolutely opposed to a romantic pairing with the characters you listed, please state so in the summary.
    1. Any prompts that list only one character will be viewed as character study/gen prompts.
    2. It is up to my discretion if I want to write a romantic pairing for your prompt.
tmbreck: Well, as sane as can be expected. (it changes everything)
Managed to work on some more of that ficlet from the Federation Series I was working on yesterday. Then I got to writing more, and realized that it's so totally not part of the series. This is like.. post destruction of Vulcan and post break-up with Uhura. I have to make sure to write about the break-up in a way that is reasonable and manages not to vilify or demonize Uhura. I think I can mange it. Hopefully. Also, this isn't going to be anything happy and fluffy bunny. More like bordering on, if not fully living in the land of, creepy. And, for you, a snippet:
Bending his head, he places his lips against her neck and molds his body to her. When he feels guilt begin to surface in her, he gently bites down where her neck and shoulder meet and firmly places his hand between her thighs in a move he has learned is the quickest way to encourage her desire to override her conscience. While he admires her strong moral code, he cannot allow it to jeopardize what they have. As he sinks into her arousal, he can feel his body begin to respond and pulls her hips pulls her hips tighter against him.

tmbreck: Well, as sane as can be expected. (do not question)
It was a hellacious weekend, thus the lack of W.E.D. posts. I missed writing Saturday, Sunday I wrote something that depressed the hell out of me, and Monday I wrote something personal that I never intend to share. Today, I worked on part of my Federation Series (regular 'verse companion to my AOS mirrorverse series). This is as of yet unbeta'd because it's not fleshed out enough for even my beta to see. However, you get a snippet!
Where his people repress passion, her people often use passion as a tool to express and deepen intimacy. He is aware she would be willing to forgo sexual contact out of respect for him. However, he is also aware she would not thrive in such a relationship and would eventually leave because of it. It is not an outcome he would prefer.

Wrote some more on my Chapel study. One day, you'll actually get to read it!

There'll be a surprise at the end of the month, as well. Oh, since you asked so nicely, I'll go ahead and tell you. At the end of the month, I'll put up a link to where you can put in challenges in my personal archive. You don't have to sign up, it takes anonymous challenges. However many red squares I end up with, that's how many challenges I'll take! It'll be first come first serve. I'll let you know specific details when the time comes.

tmbreck: Well, as sane as can be expected. (Default)
Today, I both wrote on my Chapel write up, and I did a little drabble. Well, 200 words. I don't usually write in present tense, but it just came out that way. It's Spillow, set in a slightly AU ending of season 6. Let me know what you all think!
They dance together to music only she can hear as the world burns around them. She isn't the first girl he's spun around in the ashes with, but she could be the last.

Bending low to her ear, he whispers that they should leave; there's nothing left for them here. It's not strictly a lie. Sure, the Watcher's still clinging to life somehow, but his girl went to town on the poor bastard and now no one would recognize him. Spike doubts he'd be much entertainment for the little witch anymore.

He's not sure what sent Willow off the deep end; he only knows that when she came back, she didn't come back all the way. Somewhere, deep in that soul he's not sure he really wanted, he aches for the good little girl he knew – the one who agonized over even bruising the feelings of a demon who had done his part to shorten her lifespan. However, high on the magic laced blood she freely offered, he finds it easy to ignore that small pain. After all, they have the world to conquer.

“Hey, now, what do you say we head to L.A. and drop in on some family?”

[livejournal.com profile] djinn_fic / Djinn's Lair] - I could go through and individually list all of the stories I love, but that would be pretty much all of them. Just go to this site for much Chapel/Spock and Chapel/Kirk love. I haven't looked at the stuff outside of TOS yet, but given the quality of the TOS fic, I'm sure that it's well worth a read.

[livejournal.com profile] cards_slash
I'm a sucker for her McCoy/Spock, most notably her series beginning with FML. Then again, I'd never say no to her Kirk/McCoy, either. The threesomes? They also rock. Go check for yourself!

slash4femme
[[livejournal.com profile] slash4femme / [personal profile] slash4femme] After you go through this list, {which some of slash4femme's fics are on} head over to her journal and read all you can devour. I'm especially a big fan of her McCoy/Spock Prime fics. Beautiful work.

Again, today I wrote on my outline/essay/examination of Chapel in Star Trek TOS and TAS. You get no snippet, mwahahahha. Also, I'm backdating this because I'm a couple hours late posting. What can I say, I got caught up in the episodes. However, you do get a handy dandy table:

Today, again, I wrote more on my episode by episode breakdown of Chapel. Again, you get no snippet. I'm evil like that!

tmbreck: Well, as sane as can be expected. (Chapel in black and white)
Today, I did two things for writing. I did a bit of a character being happy, or at least getting there. The other thing I did was start an episode by episode break down of Christine Chapel. Part of me just wants to see if I'm putting on blinders and refusing to see the pathetic character others do, or if her reputation is more than a bit undeserved. I'll be covering both TOS and TAS. I won't actually be able to cover the movies until I get them on DVD.

Basically, what that all means is that you get no snippet today. Mwahahaha.

In case anyone's interested, this was actually brought on by a few fics in which Chapel's the lovesick shrew, and then, finally, this discussion post at [livejournal.com profile] spock_chapel.

When I do get this finished, I will be posting here, in case you want to read it.

tmbreck: Well, as sane as can be expected. (to be like me)
Backdated, because I'm anal and don't want this to be marked as posted half hour after midnight.

This one is from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I know, you're shocked it isn't more Star Trek! This is something I had started work on a long time ago, and I just picked it out again today and started reworking some of it. Unbeta'd, so be warned. Here's just a snippet:
Her eyes are completely black as she rides him, hands pressing against him where his heart used to beat.

“You'll always be mine, right? I won't let you leave me.”
He's not sure when it all started to change, when she started to get lost in her own spell. Maybe he had simply found the one girl who he could make fall for him just by loving her enough. Either way, he was going to do everything he could to bind her tight to him.
He rolls them over, hand slipping unnoticed under the pillow. Bracing himself on one arm, he drags his free hand down the bed along side her, concealing a dark emerald gemstone under his palm.

tmbreck: I love this ship. It's a good ship. (USS Enterprise NCC-1701)
Today, I wrote crack! It was fun, not really having to worry about being in character, or timelines, or anything. This is Star Trek, Reboot, implied orgy, nothing to do with any of my other writings. I offer you a small snippet:
Watching the Vulcan advancing on her, Christine began to realize that drawing his attention was not, perhaps, her best idea ever.

McCoy walked in as she was inspecting the area on her neck that Spock had assaulted with his hypo.

“He got you two as well?”

At their nods, he strode out of the bay muttering about space madness and alien pollens.
The rest, can be read the rest at my archive.

tmbreck: Well, as sane as can be expected. (Default)
I'm getting this one in early. Ha! This is not in the same verse as the others. This is from my Federation Series. Hey, I have to keep my two storylines straight somehow, right? Anyway, this one has gone through countless re-workings and my beta and I finally hammered it into submission. In celebration, I present you with a snippet:
Christine Chapel was 18 years old and the daughter of Drs. Lauren and Patterson Chapel, a very ambitious and hard-working couple. She had no doubt her parents loved her, but she knew they felt it was more important they push forward with their scientific advancements than raise their child when nannies and tutors were more qualified for the job. That left Christine's marraine, Caroline, to fill the role of mother as best she could. Her dear godmother, however, was not very good with discipline or boundaries.

Christine refused to use her parents' careers, or Caroline's lack of disciplinary skills, as a crutch, however. In the end, she ended up a strange mix of responsibility and entitlement, love and loneliness. She had her faults, and she was well aware of them, however, she also had the will to correct them.
For my past WED posts (all one of them), check out my writing:write every day tag.
tmbreck: Doctor McCoy; When Water Comes to Life (the tragedy)
This is totally backdated because I got distracted watching a movie and forgot to post. Unbeta'd, so here's a snippet. It's in the Empire Series, and it's from T'Pau's POV. So, no sex, but we do see that this Mirrorverse has been altered by Nero. Later, in the multi-chapter series, I'll even explain the circumstances behind Nero's trip through the wormhole! However, for now, a snippet from T'Pau:
Since before she was born, the Terrans had ruled over T'Pau's people without mercy. Vulcan, as a whole, had been absorbed into the Empire and there had seemed very little that could be done about it.

However, there were those behind the scenes, waiting for an opportunity to arise, a way to exploit a weakness in the Empire. Their patience was rewarded when one of the Imperial Fleet's own ships was attacked by what was later was revealed to be a Romulan vessel.

tmbreck: Captain Kirk - Charilie X (manly strut)
Still in the Empire series. Unbeta'd. Again, Jim's POV Tomorrow, I post the story!
Kirk wasn't sure what the other captains had received in that second message, but what he'd been given was not something he wanted to even think about again.

tmbreck: Captain Kirk - Charilie X (manly strut)
I would have gotten more done, but there was re-writes, then posting to do. You know how it is. So, since this is incomplete, you get the snippet. Unbeta'd, so don't look to [livejournal.com profile] velvetwhip when it looks like crap.

Yes, this is still from my Empire series. And, this one is finally from Kirk's POV. Small warning, Kirk had a potty mouth. Bad Kirk!
It took a while for Kirk to figure out what his first officer was doing with their newest Head Nurse. With anyone else, the small touches would have been thoughtless gestures, but with Spock they obviously had a purpose. It wasn't until the Vulcan had stared straight into his eyes as Chapel slightly, and unconsciously, leaned into the touch that he knew for sure.

That fucking Vulcan bastard.


And, someone asked me how this series differs from the TOS mirrorverse enough to make it AOS. Just to let everyone know, that will be addressed.

For my past WED posts, check out my writing:write every day tag.
tmbreck: I needed a TOS!Scotty icon, and here it is (batshittery)
Earth --> Vulcan (a little over) 16 light years *
(TOS / AOS era) Warp 8 = 512 x the speed of light**
1 light year would take a year to travel (at the speed of light) ***

So, this is my math:

365 (days)
x16
------
5840 (days)
÷512
------
11.40625 (days)


So, by my calculations, at warp 8. it would take about 11 days (more, actually, but I don't know how much 'a little over' is) to get to Vulcan from Earth.

Over 16 fucking years at sub-light speed, which Enterprise would be traveling after ejecting the warp core.

...

I'm thinking they got a tow home. You agree? Of course, maybe they found a base on the way. Yeah, I just now thought of that. I R Smrt!

tmbreck: Doctor McCoy; When Water Comes to Life (the tragedy)
Unbeta'd, because it took so long. This is only a snippet, because of the non-beta'd status.

Again, Star Trek: AOS, Mirrorverse. I will be posting this as soon as it's finished and has been beaten into submission by my beta.
Everything about her seemed designed to present a challenge, and Kirk was well known to love challenges. Her presence on board the Enterprise would provide the perfect opportunity to remind the Captain that anything he had or wanted could easily be taken away.

This is beta'd. Shocking, right? I happened to find my beta and force her to read over it before I posted. Pre-beta was too scary for words.

This takes place in AOS mirror!verse, and it's Chapel/Spock (my very first Star Trek OTP). Who knows, I may eventually expand on it. There's a whole big story waiting to be written about how he can be not physically interested to start with, but still be able to have sex with her. And, yes, I'm posting the whole thing. One day, I'll be back in my grove and able to write more than 100-200 snippets.

Since this could be a complete story in and of itself, a nice snippet, I'll give you the whole thing. I call it Sex and Other Tools.
It was like this every time.

Christine wasn't sure, at first, why he initiated anything if it wasn't something he physically wanted. When he'd taken her the first time, she had assumed it was a show of power; domination through sex. Still, what he had done was less like fucking than making love.

It wasn't until she caught Kirk staring at her one day, noticing Spock had seen it as well, that the words he always said as he sank into her every night began to make sense.

“If another were to touch you, this would cease.”

Her body on fire from his touches, both physical and mental, everything clicked into place.

She was a pawn he used against the captain, a way to show Kirk that his first officer was more than capable of taking something he wanted and keeping it for himself.

Oddly enough, it made it easier to just let go and enjoy. Power plays were something she could understand. That he did everything possible to addict her to his touch didn't really bother Christine. After all, there were far worse things he could do.

This is pre-beta. I only managed to get 211 words written today, but that was after RL and fixing up some of what I wrote yesterday. This is just a snippet:
They left port with a skeleton crew; just enough people to run the ship, with the exception of a full medical complement in her sickbay. They weren't told the nature of the mission but everyone had their ideas.

“We're a traveling ghost ship, but we've got enough food to feed an over-staffed heavy cruiser twice over.”

Okay, I'm trying to get back into the groove, writing wise. In order to this, I've decided that I need to write something, anything, every day. In order to help keep me honest, I'm going to turn to you, my flist. I'll be posting either snippets, or all of what I write that day, depending on what it is I write. If you don't see something from me, hit me up!

What brought this on? My beta basically said "Girl, seriously, you're rusty as an old nail. Go back, read your old shit, you know, from when you were a decent writer. Also, practice, because your voice, rhythm and style are all fucked up."

Okay, she was much nicer about it. Even with the bleeding her red pen did over my work because it was that awful, she was still very nice about it. I love my beta!

I did write something yesterday, so I'm back-dating this. It's the edited version, since I had already sent it to my beta. The full deal won't get posted until I've got a couple of chapters, at least, of this story under my belt.

To that end, may I present, a snippet from the prologue:
After dying her hair blonde in a pathetic attempt at spontaneity and rebellion, she was at a bit of a loss as to what to do next. Starfleet hadn't been a choice, really; she had just decided to drive north until she ran out of patience or inspiration struck.

Inspiration, as it turned out, looked a lot like a Starfleet recruiter.

I went Tribble because I couldn't choose. I had it narrowed down to Spones and Jones, but then they offered up Tribble.

ETA: Good lord, this was supposed to be posted yesterday, but my connection went away. I have a picspam post for The Man Trap set up, I just need to send it past my beta. Yes, the only thing I don't send past a beta these days are my journal posts. Even my icons get the beta treatment.

[[livejournal.com profile] djinn_fic / Djinn's Lair] - I could go through and individually list all of the stories I love, but that would be pretty much all of them. Just go to this site for much Chapel/Spock and Chapel/Kirk love. I haven't looked at the stuff outside of TOS yet, but given the quality of the TOS fic, I'm sure that it's well worth a read.

I'm a sucker for her McCoy/Spock, most notably her series beginning with FML. Then again, I'd never say no to her Kirk/McCoy, either. The threesomes? They also rock. Go check for yourself!

Okay, so I was discussing the differences between Reboot!Spock and TOS!Spock with my husband, and he's pinpointed, at least in my mind, why they are different.

It's Sarek. In The Final Frontier, when presented with his son, he's offended at how human his son is*. However, in the new movie's deleted scenes, Sarek doesn't come off as douche-y and disappointed. Basically, we get a softer, more understanding Sarek.

Why?

My husband started in on this whole 'they went to another reality, the differences don't just start at Nero' bit. Me, I'm like, they fucking created a new reality when Nero popped through. So then I started thinking about what would change Sarek. I then came up with the idea that someone did a time travel thing like when Spock went back in ST:TAS Yesteryear and saved himself. But, I'm thinking it would have to be a human in order to make this version of Sarek as accepting of his son's human side.

Your thoughts?

* Going by memory, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
tmbreck: I love this ship. It's a good ship. (USS Enterprise NCC-1701)
I'm finding myself disturbed by certain things in the episode Miri. The dialog can be seen as entirely innocent.. but the editing/camera work makes it seem very... off.

What I do find funny and not really disturbing (besides the need for Kirk's PA on the away team), is the fact that Security Guard #2 (SG2) keeps pointing his phaser at Spock.
Fields vs Spock 001Fields vs Spock 002
Fields vs Spock 001Fields vs Spock 002
As I cap the other episodes the character/actor are in, I'll keep an eye out to see if this behavior continues.

Someone needs to write a short story about SG2's secret resentment. Maybe he has a crush on Chapel/Kirk/McCoy and hates that said crush prefers Spock. I'd also like a fic dealing with what happens with Miri and Jahn after the Enterprise leaves. And did they ever get the truant officers?

Side note, SG2 was played by John Arndt, who only gets SG2 as a name in this episode, but ends up being named as Crewman Fields. Now, according to Memory Alpha, he's the same guy in all the episodes he's played in, save The Man Trap, where he played Crewman Sturgeon (casualty).

Yes, I did look that up. I'm that lame.

You know what else I find funny? Kirk always talk to others about a person, while the person is well within hearing range, as if they can't hear him. It makes me laugh every time. The not funny: I did find those kids freaking creepy.

Anybody have any other thoughts on this episode?
