Fic: Black Spider Howl

Black Spider Howl
11 Things Howl Would Rather Not be Made Public Knowledge

Howl's Moving Castle (book). Warnings for excessive male ego, true love terror, spiderwebs and the Goblin King.

It was the magic, he realizes now, it was always the magic, his addiction, his blessing, and it had been winding around the grey girl like a purring cat, while there she was pretending to be a mouse. )

Inception coda. 1000 word concept fic. PG.
This is not his curse, this should not be his madness. This was always Mal’s, this totem, this virus.

Fic: Blood Comes Off Easily (The Losers)

I have committed The Losers flashfic! This kind of sprang instantaneously from my brain in the hours after I watched the film. Which is amazing and something everyone should watch so they can all keep me company in my descent into madness, gunporn, and JDM obsession.

So. This one's for [ profile] egregiouslypink, seeing as how she is quite possibly the only person on my flist in this criminally small fandom.

Title: Blood Comes Off Easily
Wordcount: 3333
Rating: R
Warnings: Childhood trauma of a violent nature, and character death (both are implied, not explicit).

She didn’t grow up in the wilds of Northern Africa; she spent a summer there once, which was when she picked up the habit of collecting human ears. )

My contribution to [ profile] summergen:

She became the shivering tremble of a whetting stone across the edge of a blade, the heavy scent of gun oil and long afternoons working on the once-hated Impala.
For the prompt: AU. John dies on the ceiling, and Mary goes after the YED.

Go check out the masterlist, there are some brilliant fics, artwork and vids just waiting to be praised.

Wow, it must be exam time. Operation Procrastination is at Defcon One.



'cause geek and muscle go together like horse and carriage
The Alec/Eliot comment fic party. You know you want to come and play ...

It's very timely, actually, considering this fascinating meta by [personal profile] facetofcathy on the stastics of the burgeoning Leverage fandom activity, and the surprising lack of Alec Hardison, the One Geek to Rule Us All. (Okay, that last bit was all me.)

My contribution: Snuggling.


Pimping out a new community:

They too have a comment fic meme going on, the theme of which is 4.22: The Day After.

This is mine.
(Spoilery, obviously. Set immediately post-finale to the prompt: You-Know-Who is suddenly right there.)

The [ profile] spn_summergen have gone out, and I'm very happy with mine; I've been hit with an awesome concept, and now all I have to do is pull it off.

If you got my prompts, don't worry about sticking to them exactly, I'm very relaxed, and you can go off on all the tangents you like.



Everyone has things they blog about. Everyone has things they don't blog about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don't blog about, but you'd like to hear about, and I'll write a post a reply about it. Ask for anything: latest movie watched, last book read, political leanings, thoughts on yaoi, favorite type of underwear, graphic techniques, etc.

Dig yourself, Lazarus.

So there's this library on my campus, it's a secondary library, far away from the main one, sequestered away in an old corner, and in this library, there's a floor where hardly anybody ever goes. It's full of the most amazing books, in languages I can't begin to recognize, let alone read. I love it. There are, however, some books in English, old, old, old books. Wandering around, as I do sometimes in between study bouts, pulling random books off the shelves, I came across a small, red book that was in tatters, and full of old Irish spells and curses. This is one:

A Charm against Accidents, Fire, Tempests, Water, Knife or Lance.

"Jesus, Savior of men. In Jesus trust, and in Mary trust truly for all grace.
This is the measure of the wounds of Christ upon the Cross, which was brought to Constantinople to the Emperor as a most precious relic, so that no evil enemy might have power over him. And whoever reads it, or hears it, cannot be hurt by fire or tempest, or the knife, or the lance; neither can the devil have power over him, nor will he die an untimely death, but safety from all dangers will be his to the end."

Why yes, the footnotes do include footnotes.

Heroes and Pundits

So my [ profile] lgbtfest fic is up, written for the prompt:

RPF - Pundits, Stephen Colbert, When Stephen comes out to Jon in an unscripted toss, nobody's quite sure whether it was an in-character joke or not. Including Stephen.

1. I'm on dreamwidth here if anybody wants to find me.

2. All are welcome, Open ID and DW users alike. I just thought Leverage needed a home base on external territory. ;)


3. Posted fic on the Supernatural H/C Meme for the prompt:

Dean, Castiel, Sam (slashy is good but not required, gen good too!)

A demon has a grudge against Castiel (maybe for his role in getting Dean saved, or in killing Alistair). Sam and Dean arrive in time to save their angel, but there's repair & comfort needed, of course.

It's over here.

4. This makes me sick to my stomach. (Review of the new Seth Rogen film 'Observe and Report')

Of course. Because Rape is hilarious.

Blatant Self-Indulgence, meet Shameless Prose. Now gang up on Charlie.

Meme from [ profile] speccygeekgrrl

1. Take five books off your bookshelf.
2. Book #1 -- first sentence
3. Book #2 -- last sentence on page fifty
4. Book #3 -- second sentence on page one hundred
5. Book #4 -- next to the last sentence on page one hundred fifty
6. Book #5 -- final sentence of the book
7. Make the five sentences into a paragraph

I first met Dean not long after my wife and I split up. I murmured an excuse and slipped away, leaving them to their own formidable devices. The eye of the saint, focused on the meaning of a short earthly life, frightful in every way, focused on the imminence of the final decision about an endless new life to come, this burnt-out eye, in a half-wasted body, made men of the old world tremble to their depths. A long, stringy man, wearing three rows of beads around his neck, and a belt of chicken-bones around his waist; his dark skin stained with ashes his hair loose and long - naked except for beads and ashes, the sadhu strides up amongst the red-tiled mansions. I felt like a monster reincarnation of Horatio Alger ... A Man on the Move, and just sick enough to be totally confident.

Which sparked an apocalyptic SPN drabble. Don't ask. Spoilers are vague for S4 )
