You know what is good?
Jun. 1st, 2006 @ 03:16 pm
Posting fic is good. Feedback is good. I, apparently, did not post any stories at all in May, which is funny because the Teal'c fic was posted right at the end of April (and nomm'd! YAY!) and the apocalyptothon Cameron & Sam fic was posted today. I have multiple fics, though, that are finished and drafted enough to have made their steady progress through beta-land at least once, and now I'm tempted to break out the rags and polish.
The incredible 7 fanfiction pieces nominated in the Stargate Fan Awards (seriously, thanks so much for the compliments) are so diverse in subject that none of them ended up seating themselves in even vaguely the same categories, and only two of the seven even feature the same pairing (it's Jack and Daniel, though. Awwww.)
You know what's wierd, though? Categorizing the threesome+femmeslash+crossover was much, MUCH easier than categorizing the Sam and Teal'c Watch Old Movies friendship piece.
ETA: These are the nomm'd fics: Campfirelight, Campfire Stories.
Calm little S9 team fic. Cam POV, gen.One Day I'll Fly Away and Vanish.
Jack/Daniel S9 NC-17 angst fic.Like No One is Watching.
Teamficathon action piece, Daniel POV, PG-13.The Eye is not Satisfied with Seeing.
For Taselby. Cameron/Teal'c NC-17 powerplay episode tag to Arthur's Mantle.Perchance to Dream.
Teal'c ficathon Sam and Teal'c friendship over old movies late at night fic. Teal'c POV, gen, PG.Aliens Didn't Make Them Do It.
Challenge response waaaay back when (it's something like the fourth thing I wrote) for Nialla. Jack/Daniel, S9 featuring Jack playing with Daniel's hands. PG-13 or R rated.The Principle of Exclusion.
Ah, the smutfic. Crossover with Atlantis, threesome, slash, femmeslash, multiple partners... good times, good times. In which Sam is not vanilla. NC-17. The easiest to categorize.
Picking a category iz hard, but at least I don't have to worry that they'll be competing with each other.
You all know you can find my fic under the fanfic tag
or linked in the layout's left column, right? Good. Did I thank those of you who nominated all those fic? Thank you. It makes me happy.
I now present for you voting pleasure: WIPs! What would you most like to read?
Jack/Daniel mildly kinky fic. I started this as a comment fic and continued it a little for another challenge, then decided to keep going even farther but... lost focus. And zing. I have an idea, though...
excerpt: Daniel shifted his weight and slowly brought his hand out from underneath Jack’s shirt to wrap his fingers around the man’s other wrist. His thumb touched the tip of his longest finger as he twisted slightly, working his hand under the cuff of the jacket. Straightening and pulling Jack’s hand from its plant on his shoulder, Daniel deliberately pinned the second wrist to the wall. Jack’s breath hitched.
An orphan sexy bit that would stand alone as a Sam Self-love ficlet, with a little heavy petting. S7-ish, I think.
excerpt: Her hand began an unconscious soothing of the red thumbprint it left on her hip, a gentle petting just above the hair, in a half moon circular curve that mirrored the arc of her hip.
And wouldn't that have been appropriate to post last month? Being as how May was masturbation month? Oh well.
Cam and Teal'c, Courting. Oh, come on! You know these are old fashioned guys and you know
they are planning dates with the goal of entertaining one another... courting! Specially tailored for a Southern Fanboy and a Patient Alien with a Subtle Sense of Humor. Also known as the fic where I finally use Taselby's ice cream prompt. And I think I should get points for contributing to the G-rated slash category.
excerpt: “We require spoons to drink a beverage?” he enquired, mildly perplexed as straws joined the spoons in each glass. “Does the ice cream not melt upon addition of liquid, Colonel Mitchell?”
“Not entirely, there’s this sort of crunchy outside around a hunk of frozen goodness,” Mitchell said, smiling, “although it does really help to have a hot day behind you to appreciate it, and I do not answer to Colonel Mitchell on my days off.”
What else is good: The Black Powder War arriving on my doorstep. How I love the UPS man.
Also also good: People. Friends are good. Friends help with that whole perspective thing and make lunch dates and offer to do the job the advisor will not do. Who offer hugs and let me off the hook for blanking on stuff. Who threaten to beat up mean people who make me sad, with a surprising variety of impliments. Yeah. Friends.
Picking categories IZ hard! I wobbled.
WIPs: Oh, polish these!!!! I love them all! Jack/Daniel is my SG OTP, and wall pinning makes me drown in my own drool, so definitely that! Though Cam and Teal'c on a date in an ice cream parlor is tickling my funny bone something fierce. So very '50s of Cam, and I can totally see that.
The J/D is going to take the most work, I think. I'm really pleased with all the foreplay and how they decide they're going to have a little bondage with their sex, but then the actual smut lacks zing. *ponders* I must decide where the toppy instinct comes from and how strong it is, I think. That's going to make or break the second part. *nods thoughtfully*
Cam and Teal'c, though, are very cute. Those boys. You should see the part where Cam gets nervous and a can of soda gets shaken accidentally. Hee! Wet shirt contest. Then they get a bit serious, and I must let them say serious things when what I really want is to let them lose the wet shirt. Mmmm....
Cam/Teal'c! Cam/Teal'c! I swear, I may have just found my slash OTP at last. :)
Also, congrats on the noms. You deserve them. :)
I had Teal'c and Sam specifically requested in the ficathon, but that 'thon has launched a thousand plot bunnies in my head for Cam and Teal'c. I really adore those guys.
Thanks for the congrats. I'm a bit floored.
Is it wrong to want all of the above fics? Because, damn ::fans self::
And go you on all the nomms! ::hugs::
So that's a vote for ... all of them? Heh. Excellent, I shall endevour to write your favorites first (not that I was going to hold myself to the voting thing, but still)
Really, any one of these could be finished at any time!
Thanks for the hugs. I'm quite tickled about being nomm'd.
Congrats on the noms, sweetie! *hugs ya*
And, ya know I'd lurve to see the J/D mild (or otherwise) kink. But, they're ALL
I'm a-tempted to put in a little time laboring with Jack and Daniel. They keep shorting out my brain, though, and it makes it difficult to, you know, write words...
It's a tough job.
Thanks for the 'grats. *glee* Nomms. You know that means people like my stories? I think that's what that means.

i'm glad you have had a good lunch with someone who can support you with the dissertation. :)
Good people, very good people. Cheered me no end.
Yay for you honey... *squidge*
Ooooh... I'm hoping other people will post their nommed fics like this so I have lots to read over the weekend when I am able to catch up on ellejay...
Looks like! I'm seeing fics on my flist that I'm pretty sure I haven't read too. It's like a bonanza!
Congrats on the seven noms! See I told you there'd be more than one. Didn't expect seven. Go you!
You know, I just couldn't quite believe you about more than one, but seven? Liek woah, dude.
Randomness too, with the Aliens Didn't Make Them Do It fic, I didn't even title that one, though it was remixed, so maybe that's why people saw it.
Aren't they cute? I'm trying to decide now if Teal'c is going to institute some requirement that companions must sit each other's company for a year before shagging if it's more than a warrior-buddyfuck thing. *ponders*
*is on it*
(thanks for the 'grats)
Woo hoo! Good for you! Seven Noms, that's great.
Mine are a bit confusing...I got "The Games Men Play" nominated as a series, but I could have sworn they were going to have an unfinished series category, I know I read about it. But there's still one part left to go, and everything I'm reading says it can't be accepted if it's not complete. I'm actually writing part 7 now...I wonder if it would be cheating if I were to get it finished and posted by the time we have to make our final selections for categories? (That would be two weeks from now.) What do you think?
The other thing I got nomed is "Seduction," (part 4 of TGMP.) It can stand alone, with out the rest of the series, but it seems weird that whoever nomed it would pick that one out of the middle. At least it seems weird to me, anyway. I was expecting that if any of them got nomed individually, it woudl be the first one: "A Reall Bad Idea."
Aw, MAN! That's too bad about WIPs being disqualified. I think I heard that they had to be finished before the noms went out, but I could be totally wrong about that, and if you think you can finish in time, don't look into it.
A Really Bad Idea was marvelous, and I think really got the ball rolling, but maybe someone thought Seduction just hit a bulletproof kink? I think all of them can stand alone, really.
Thanks for the 'grats, and 'grats to you as well. Hope things are better.
Oh, yeah, I forgot...
My vote is a tie between the kinky J/d, and the Cam/Teal'c courting...can I vote for both? Please?
:::innocent smile while fluttering eyelashes:::
I think the J/D needs a POV switch. I remember you said you did that with the ficathon C/T, and I think it might help to switch to Jack's POV. I actually am pondering first person, but it won't last.
You may vote as many times as you like.
*falls for the innocent act*
Congrats on the noms! Wheeee!
I want all three fics next. But I'll vote for the Sam one, because it sounds like it doesn't take much work to finish, and then the Teal'c/Mitchell, because it sounds like it'll be the smoothest and most enjoyable to finish (and you said the Jack/Daniel needs the most work).
::hugs you just 'cause::
I'm getting a lot of joy out of all of these. It's been the height of ficathon season, so it'll be nice to get back to things that aren't prompted.
*hugs you back*
I think hugging is an art form. I was teased the other day (probably a few weeks ago, actually) for instinctively putting my arms underneath other people's when I hug them. Apparently the equible way is to offer one arm (usually right arm, dominant hand) up and one down, and if you are little, either in size or age, you might put both arms up to ask for support, and I guess it's odd for a woman to offer both arms low, because it offers support, and it's more of a stronger hug...
From my point of view, though, I'm bending down anyway (I'm tallish) so it's strange to bend and tilt, and I am strong, so it feels wierd to wrap my arms around someone's head if I put both arms up. Around the ribcage is a firm, warm, full hug. Balanced. And I have shoulders enough that wrapping arms around my shoulders is a good stable things too.
I must decide whether this warrants reconsidering. One up, one down is so TILTED, though, specially if you love petite people.
Oooh, very interested in the Sam one ;)
Oh, goody, someone who wants to see Sam... um. That didn't sound right, but is oddly accurate. *eg*
*beams* Thank you So. Much. *heads off in a daze of compliments*
*votes for "All of the above"*
lol! I think you've seen all of these already. Silly. So's okay I spam your inbox if I get inspired and write all suddenly?
