Sticky Post: Information About This LJ

Hola!

This is the quick-and-dirty version of the intro-to ratherastory. Before I had a bunch of "sticky posts" on my LJ page, but by the end there were five of them and they were becoming a serious clutter issue.

In the interests of easier navigation, I am therefore putting the links to those posts all in this post AND in the sidebar of my LiveJournal (along with a bunch of other links you might find of interest, since you've made your way here already).

Intro to Ratherastory

Master List of Fanfiction I (Supernatural & Supernatural RPF)

Master List of Fanfiction II (Other Fandoms & Podfic)

Master Post of Writing Projects

Addendum:

Recent changes on LiveJournal are making it increasingly inhospitable for fanfiction. While I plan on continuing to crosspost here for the foreseeable future, there may come a time when I move permanently. Here are the other places on the Internet you can find me and/or my fic:

Dreamwidth: ratherastory

Archive of Our Own: ratherastory

Twitter: Follow @ratherastory

Just in case...

Hi everyone!

*waves*

I'm still alive. I hear LJ is getting turned over to Russia, and that means that there's a non-zero chance that my journal and everything contained therein could face deletion (because slash fiction) or whatever else.

So, anyway, I've had a back-up at Dreamwidth for a while, under the same name. If I disappear from LJ, you can always find me on DW, with the only thing missing being many of the lovely comments people have left for me over the years (alas).

Okay, that's it for my PSA. While I'm here, who-all is going to ConfabCon in May? I shall be there, and I want to make sure to see as many of you as humanly possible! Speak up if there's even the slightest chance that you'll be there!

Halp! Does anyone still have my podfic?

Hi all!

I know it's been a while since I was here. I can't promise I'll be back and writing any time soon, because burnout sucks. I do have a favour to ask of you all, though. A few months ago I had Harddrive Issues(TM), and I lost all my podfic. Since my stuff was archived in a place which is now down for the count, it means that unless some lovely and enterprising fangirls kept my podfic, it's gone forever.

Can anyone help me out? Even if you have only one podfic that I recorded, that would be awesome. Thank you!!!

Lest we forget...

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

*tap tap* This thing on? aka ratherastory wrote a (small) thing.

*blows dust off LJ*

I maybe wrote a small thing. rainylemons told me about Killjoys, and so I'm sweeping the cobwebs off my keyboard and seeing if I can manage to write something that isn't pure crap.

Title: Killjoys in 100 words
Summary: One drabble for each episode in Season 1. I'm going to keep going with Season 2, just haven't started yet. I'm trying to see if I can capture the characters' voices before I venture into anything bigger.
Characters: Almost everyone? Dutch, Johnny, D'Avin, Lucy, Pree, Fancy Lee, Alvis, Turin, Hills
Wordcount: 1,000 (10 drabbles, 100 words each on the nose)
Rating: PG (minor swearing)
Spoilers: Through the end of the Season 1 finale
Warnings: Show warnings apply, nothing major I can think of
Neurotic Author's Note: I don't have one this time? Maybe this:

Wee Update, and Wincon!

Hi LJ!

*waves*

Long time no see! That's because I haven't been writing, and I pretty much only use this LJ for my fanfiction. No fanfic, no post, you see how that goes? I stopped writing because writing was making me hate myself, and so far I haven't regretted that decision, even though I still feel guilty about not writing. Of the lose-lose scenario, this one was the least painful.

On a much brighter note, I am going to Wincon, thanks to the generosity of valtyr who bought me a pass last year when I was broke! \o/

So, who else is going? I want to meet as many of you wonderful people as possible! (And then, quite possibly, I will be peopled out and spend several hours hiding under a table, but you're all cool with that, right?)

Speak and be heard!

If There Is A Flame, Don't Snuff It Out (Garden 'verse, Part 6)

Title: If There Is A Flame, Don't Snuff It Out (Garden 'verse, Part 6)

 

Summary: Dean approaches Lisa with a problem.

Characters: Lisa Braeden, Dean Winchester

Rating: PG

Wordcount: 2,247

Warnings: None

Spoilers: None

Neurotic Author's Note #1: So, uh, hi folks! I'm still here. I told you I had plans for this 'verse, didn't I? So, here I am, continuing those plans. I have other stories to tell, and they'll likely end up out of order, just like in Fusion. This is the story that wanted to be told today. It's set a few years after The Kids Are Still Alright.

Neurotic Author's Note #2: It's my birthday! The universe rewarded me with crippling vertigo, but since I was almost done with this story, I figured a birthday fic would be a nice way to mark the day. Once this is posted, I'm going to turn over in bed (yay laptops!) and have a nap. :P

Neurotic Author's Note #3: You'll have to forgive how rough this is. It honestly feels like I've forgotten how to write in the past year and a half. I'm hoping that if I practice more, I'll get my mojo back properly. This isn't beta'd, either, because I don't want to chicken out before posting it. ;)

Wincon: 24 Hours Left!

Guys, Wincon is in trouble! They need a little under $1,700 before midnight, EST, on January 4th, or else they'll be shutting down for good!

The good news is that their indiegogo campaign is offering some seriously awesome perks! Go check it out!


www.indiegogo.com/projects/wincon-2015#home

Okay, I tried to link with an embedded file and it totally failed, so above is just the plain link so you can go contribute!

<i>:::ETA:::</i>

Heck, if anyone is up for it, I can treat this like a fandom auction thing, and offer fic if you're inclined to support the con. This is NOT officially associated with Wincon, not in the slightest, but as of my ETA they are even closer to their goal, so I'm happy to offer extra unofficial incentive. It would be a prompt of your choosing, and, uh, say, 100 words for every $1 you contribute. So $1 gets to a drabble, $5-$10 gets you a ficlet, etc. PM or email me if that's something you'd be interested in, and we can work out details.
