[sticky post] Many Happy Returns

Wow. I've been gone for SO LONG. (Just from LJ, really...I would have been on hiatus from Tumblr but naturally that never seems to work out....)

This should be my official 'hello again' post, since there are multiple things on this site I'd planned for doing this year haha and I'm gonna do my best to keep up.

I've done a couple fan_flashworks challenges recently, but that's it, I think. I haven't done any graphics in a loong time, just writing. There are indeed bigger time constraints with school, since with the Independent Living program I'm in, I'm basically in school full time.

(Speaking of which, I've officially switched into the Associate's program track for my Early Childhood Ed degree!)

The following is more for me than anyone else, but hey, jsyk.

Starting now, I'm gonna go through my LJ inbox. I have as of this moment (2:49pm) 2970 unread messages.

Posts that I have read/hope to read will be deleted from my inbox and go to my memories so I can go back to them later. This will include fics, icon posts, and friends' personal updates.

Challenge reminders will stay in my inbox, at least until I make note enough of them that I'm sure I'll remember to do the thing.

I'll make a list of comms that I need to check in with and/or keep up on challenges for.

I'll update this post as I go along.

*ahem* edited 4.27, 5:18pm

okay so I've gotten my assignment so I'm gonna figure whoever is assigned to me has as well and I'm gonna actually do this post woohoo here goes

General/All ships:

1. my ao3 @ charleybradburies would probably be useful - shows what I've written and bookmarked so could give an idea of what I like.

2. the things that I absolutely do not want are basically all on the porny side: fully non-con 'relations', and either defecation or urination. any violence inflicted (esp. on protags), inc. rape fantasy, should be done carefully, please.

3. there are so many places any of these things could be taken and I will love you for just about anything tbh

4. as you may predict from the requests, I would be quite intrigued to see what might come of any of these characters or ships being in the GoT-verse in some form or fashion. I'm flexible. (hey, Red Woman Wanda anyone? yes or yes?)

Ship/AU Specific:

Peggy Carter/Daniel Sousa: THE OTP OF ALL MY OTPS. PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING AND I WILL SQUEAL AND I'M STILL NOT OVER THEM IN THE AGENT CARTER PILOT SO
-I fully believe they're endgame and don't like the idea of bringing Steve back just to complicate their relationship, and I think Steve would be fine with it anyway.
-Daniel/Jack/Peggy of most sorts or combos is not my jam, although I am slowly being dragged into at least the JackDaniels trash can as well.
-(feel free, maybe, to combine this and Peggy/Dottie...I personally love imagining Daniel gladly watching from the adjacent room whenever Peggy's got some heated shit going down in interrogation)

Jessica Jones/Patricia Walker:
D/s-verse (I think domination play would be interesting for them, especially in a way where they use it for Jess's healing from her experience with Kilgrave.)
Soulmates
Reality Show (even just Trish commenting on her show about her time with Jessica could be fun)
Different Character Given Supersoldier Serum (exploration of what the fresh hell was going on with that experiment Simpson was in, and Trish being a complete badass)

Peggy Carter/Dottie Underwood:
-the competition. the thirst. the skill. the bisexuality. there's. so. much. here. just run. literally just run with whatever if you have something.

Wanda Maximoff/Natasha Romanov:
-Love thinking about trauma recovery for them. I think they could be very strong supports for each other.
-Game of Thrones fusion (Scarlet Witch/Red Woman; Natasha's 'the truth is not all things to all people and neither am I' as Arya's 'no one'...there is magic and spying so there's a lot even canonically that could fit)

when the cookies crumble

everything else does too.....

so not only have my emotions (as always) been totes on the fritz, but apparently after i came home - had to get my dad to pick me up after class - on tuesday night, and finished off my ice cream, and watched another Daredevil, i went to sleep that night only to not only have two (at least) nightmares, and then not wake up at all, until about noon today. my back's been hurting to the point it makes it hard to stand or do anything, i can barely move, barely think straight (or, well, all that reasonably. straight's a shit word). i have an oral exam today and have to meet with my partner, missed the last couple days of november writing, not to mention living....i'm still physically shaking. still anxious as fuck. still have (possible tw/cw) my period, and cramps, and everything else with that....it's even raining today. not nice rain, either. it's just plain icky.

i don't know what's going on with me. like, i could have sworn that being scared of everything and having next to no motivation and barely being able to sleep and feeling like shit all the time was bad enough but no? apparently my body doesn't know how to exist without fucking me over....

prompts needed!



So. Here's the deal. I'm behind on my word count, and I'd very much like to change that, but I'm having trouble coming up with ideas that are specific enough to write. I have some more general/vague ones, but that's not helping me that much. And while I'm always open for requests or commissions, I don't get people asking for things all that often, so I'm trying to make it as clear as possible that I am ASKING FOR REQUESTS.

Any ship here is fair game, but if one you're particularly fond of isn't listed you are still very much free to ask. If I'm in that fandom and it's not a NOTP, I'll give basically anything a go.

Also, I'm working on some prompts tables, and scenarios/ships/etc for those prompts are more than welcome, so if you'd like to take a go at helping me fill any of these prompts, please, go ahead! (If not, no pressure!)

femslash100 drabble cycle #12: alternate universes | claim: marvel (all) (note: the longest these pieces can be is 250 words)
hurt/comfort bingo (note: doing all fills in different fandoms)
100-women prompts table (note: doing 100 different women)
additionally, these tables from mcufemslash

I'm also looking for Daredevil prompts (centered around Matt, since it's currently Matt Murdock Week - you can see the schedule/prompts here if you want).

So, hit me with your thoughts, with whatever it is you've been wanting to read in your fanfiction! Let your fic-hungry friends know that I'm open for business (both literally, and figuratively - normally I write shorter pieces but if you want something longer (or just want to be nice and/or help me w/ groceries), commissions for longer works are totally on the table)!

note to self: prompts from kaige

~hit me with your best shots! fire awayyy~
+I tried to add Angie, Daniel, and Colleen, because they need more love from the fandom, and I just wanted to try to have diversity in these icons rather than just twenty of Peggy. I'm not sure to what extent I succeeded, but know that I tried. I'll probably make more, without having themes to try to make sure the icons fit but just for fun. Somehow I didn't do any of Jarvis or Jack or Howard, either. Well, they'll show up in later episodes.
+for episodes20in20 round one.
+if you have thoughts please comment.
+if you take and/or use any please comment and credit.
+enjoy!

Prompt me! (slash give ideas, etc)

OKAY FRIENDS (and me)!!!!!!!

I've been behind on my NaNo word count every day so far. According to the lovely graph provided by the NaNo site, I will need (in order to reach 50k by the end of the month) to write at least 1890 words a day from now on.

SO. I'm aiming for 4k between today and Monday. (my dad and I are going to lunch and the movie about Malala, and we always have family dinner Sunday nights, so I don't know how much writing time I'll have. Eek.)

(I've got this post/challenge from gameofcards / card_writing to look at as well. but...yeah.)

I have my winterknights fest thing (and, note to self: we can do more than one entry) which will obviously be Morgwen with a side of Merthur (the prompt I picked was 'the two of them celebrating different holidays and figuring out how to celebrate together' but it's okay to use any that are here)

I have a holiday gift for a fellow Cartinelli fan which is about them being trapped inside on a snowy day. so if you have a plot bunny on that, I'd love it (except they asked for fluff and no smut...so my usual direction would be a no-go.)

also need story ideas for every day of maria hill week other than wednesday and sunday - and then the rest of ziva week I caught the first day but I missed yesterday oops

and then my h/c bingo card...and stony bingo...and teen wolf femslash bingo...why am I a terrible person who commits and can't commit woops

I have to do my superhero au for silas festival. never mind apparently that was cancelled...well if people want me to do that i will.

I just...need more concrete ideas, and inspiration. Like I'm even back to using my writing blog but my brain is just like...what are we doing?

I'm gonna stop listing stuff now because this is stressful and I need to sleep. (and yes, yes I know my mental health/general wellbeing are more important than reaching a word count BUT I WANT TO DO THE THING I NEED TO PROVE TO MYSELF I CAN DO THE THING also my french homework i also need to do that)

(side note: i'm also looking for a new, still fandom related but christmasy/wintery tumblr url so i'm taking suggestions for that too)

the world is overwhelming and I'm not sure I won't just be scared to literal death someday but it can't be today because I have a fellow grown ass woman to take fucking care of wtf the fuck is my life

it's supposed to be the best time of the year but no my parents are in fucking paris and I'm trying to handle my own mental and physical health issues, babysit my fucking grown ass bipolar stepsister, and not fail my French course, at the same fucking time

*insert friends theme because there was definitely no one who ever told me life would be this way*

*and what about that video with the woman who's like THAT IS NOOT MY JOB because stopping other people's mental breakdowns is totally not my job especially because I can't even stop my own jesus christ save me*
