eruthros: Toph, Aang, and Momo from Avatar: TLA hugging Sokka (Avatar - group hug!)
The [community profile] white_lotus Lunar New Year Exchange Masterlist is up! I ended up making three things for the exchange, all of which are totally id-tastic and the reveal probably wouldn't have surprised anyone who knew me if it weren't for the fact that I rarely make three things in a year.

Title: Ephemera from the Avatar Collection at Republic City University with notes and commentary by the archivists
For: [personal profile] livrelibre
Characters/Ships: non-explicit canon relationships
Notes: no [community profile] white_lotus standard notes; references to post-series events including violence and major character death pre-Korra
Summary: Many of these pieces lack provenience, as they were recovered after the Great Fire destroyed the Kuei Royal Collection at Ba Sing Se University.

The Avatar Collection is not available to the public. Scholarly inquiries should be directed to the Chief Archivist.


This was my 48 hour pinch hit! We had a late drop-out, and so I made this over the weekend - I did the photoshopping on Saturday, then didn't have time to do anything on Sunday because I'd already arranged to go to a museum with some folks. (The de Young's Masters of Venice show, which gave me a migraine and made everyone I went with feel sick and dizzy - wow were those bad labels.) So I finished it up late Sunday and then Monday morning and made [personal profile] chagrined beta it when ze was totally drunk and then wrestled with the AO3 Monday night to try to get the formatting to work out. And after I did that, I did:

Tiitle: Spa Day (titles are hard okay)
For: [personal profile] pleonasm/[archiveofourown.org profile] dropsofviolet
Characters/Ships: Katara/Toph, Katara/Aang, lots of implied offscreen relationships
Notes: no [community profile] white_lotus standard notes
Summary: By the twelfth day of the border negotiation, Katara's barely holding on to her temper. She really needs some time off.

This was my four hour pinch hit! I freaked out when we didn't get a pinch hit exactly at a late deadline (though it worked out okay in the end) and did this late Monday night. It's pretty much thanks to [personal profile] glass_icarus, who was very helpful on IM talking about what all of the gaang need and want from each other. Also I was thinking of a great drawing of the adult gaang while I was writing it, but I can't find it now. [personal profile] chagrined betaed this, too, and [personal profile] such_heights also took a look at it.

I kind of want to write tons of other bits of this sort of warm, comfortable, post-series giant established open relationship, too, now: Aang and Zuko on a mountain together, Mai and Ty Lee on Kyoshi, Zuko and Mai visiting Toph, Aang and Katara and Zuko and Mai together in the Fire Nation Capital, Toph hitting Aang with rocks, all these different ways of being friends and lovers.

Title: a deep delight of the blood
For: [personal profile] thingswithwings
Characters/Ships: Katara/Zuko
Notes: The one with kinky bloodbending! It contains many kinks (see tags at the ao3) playing with obedience, control, consent, humiliation, temperature, bodies, and other fun things. Lots of kink, no sex. Characters are their canonical third-season ages.
Summary: "Me. You could practice on me. If I'm telling you that you can do it, it can't be wrong to practice - just in case - "

I wrote the first 4000 words of this for the exchange last year, and then didn't finish or post it because the timing was totally awful and I didn't think [personal profile] thingswithwings would appreciate giftfic at the time. I kept meaning to finish it after that, but never did, because writing is hard and I need deadlines. I did a bit more throughout the year, but didn't actually write the last five hundred words until the last weekend of the exchange. [personal profile] livrelibre and [personal profile] chagrined looked at this and were very reassuring when it had 4000 words and then looked at it again when I'd finished it, because they are awesome, even if I resisted every time [personal profile] livrelibre tried to convince me to take out some semicolons.

Also, I didn't title it until seriously the last minute, when I was despairing of ever coming up with a title and looking at quotes and song lyrics and I hated everything. And then I found this Santayana quote that made me giggle - "To knock a thing down, especially if it is cocked at an arrogant angle, is a deep delight to the blood" - so it ended up being the title even though probably it's about war or something, idk.
eruthros: Olivia from Fringe looking out at the camera (Fringe - Olivia on the right)
fandom: Fringe/The X-Files
words: 5100
rating: makeouts, no explicit sex
contains: references to X-Files and Fringe-style body horror, mostly offscreen
notes: For [personal profile] lilacsigil as part of [community profile] femslash11. Thanks to [personal profile] thingswithwings for beta and for suggesting "red menace" when I was stumped.

summary: Walter waves his doughnut in the general direction of the desiccated corpses and the cocoon, spraying Broyles' coat with powdered sugar. "You know, this reminds me of Dana's description of prehistoric bug attacks some years ago."

And also a pinch-hit Blackout Prize for [personal profile] drunken_hedghog: 8 NCIS icons, mostly Tony/Gibbs, mostly D/s or bondage.

Other kinks include dirty talk, orgasm control, gunplay, and emotion manipulation. Some dirty talk scenes may read as topping from the bottom or dubcon.
notes: Look, you guys, I finally finished something that I started three years ago for [community profile] kink_bingo! Thanks to [personal profile] chagrined and [personal profile] livrelibre and [personal profile] thingswithwings for encouragement and beta. The title is from the Contemporary English Version of the Song of Songs 8:1, which leaves out the bit about breastfeeding.

summary: "Oh, shit," he says, feeling his face heat with anger and embarrassment. And then, since he's drawn the clerk's attention, "... we're brothers."

if you were my brother I could kiss you )
eruthros: Katara from Avatar: TLA making an eye-rolly sort of face (Avatar - katara rolling her eyes)
Um. There are ... more than a hundred (spoilery) Avatar icons under this cut )

So, um. How I ended up making a hundred plus A:TLA icons.

I liked the show a lot, and when I watch shows in genres that are relatively unfamiliar to me, I try to pay attention to the structures of the genre so that I can figure out what the show is trying to do. Anyway, one of the ways I do this, sometimes, is through screencaps and iconing, because screencaps and iconing involve figuring out how a show frames the characters and the scenes, how it conveys emotion, how it plays with space and color and things.

And I liked Avatar, and starting with the second season -- I'd watched the first mostly while doing other things -- I started screencapping it to try to get a sense of the genre, and then I started iconing it, and then I didn't stop. And then today I was having a shitty day, and I thought, fuck it, I will just upload all those icons that I made and then enjoy looking at a table filled with all the awesome characters from Avatar. Because they are awesome. Hang on, I'm gonna go be reminded of how awesome they are some more.
eruthros: kink: a woman in handcuffs (kink: handcuffs)

eruthros: Farscape: John and Harvey in bunny suits (FS - John and Harvey in bunny suits)
So I was thinking about the [community profile] kink_bingo mini-challenge for this month as I was editing the kink wiki and putting in examples. And then I thought, wow, actually, I can think of a whole bunch of characters who dressed up in fursuits orfeather-suits! I should make an iconset of them to demonstrate how prevalent it is! So then I did.

There are 32 35 icons (thanks [personal profile] sabinetzin!) of people in fur/feathersuits under the cut: Mythbusters, Life on Mars, Boston Legal, Buffy, Middleman, Gravitation, and Farscape.

Sample:
001
002
003


furry iconset )

Aaaaand then I thought, while I'm uploading icons, I'll put up some Misc Iconage that I've done recently. This set includes Mytbusters kink icons, Doctor Who, Star Trek TOS, Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner, Rachel Maddow, Yellow Submarine, Hustle, White Coollar, Lord of the Rings (!), X-Files, Nichelle Nichols and Zoe Saldana, some stock photos of photography and tomatoes, and an educational comic from the 1950s.

I don't even know what all of these were for! )
eruthros: photo of a tree on a misty, grey day with the text "yuletide" (yuletide - grey tree)
So, now I can figure out who wrote my stories!

On This Shore of the World was by [personal profile] sophinisba, and The Outskirter's Quest was by xylaria (possibly [livejournal.com profile] xylaria?). Thank you both!

I wrote four stories for yuletide this year. Here's how it went:

Dreams, Tranquility, Solitude (Moon 2009 movie). [livejournal.com profile] aitakute basically asked for dystopia and identity, and I thought: well. I can do that with the film, it's all there already.

In a way, this is a perfect fandom for me -- I love worldbuilding. In another way, well, I spent a really long time watching the movie and trying to figure out, like, the economics of helium three mining, and why three years, and the physics of lunar bases, and when the baby was supposed to be born. Then basically none of that went into the story, but it made me feel better.

La Adelita (Como agua para chocolate | Like Water for Chocolate). This was my first treat; I read the author letter again on Monday night or Tuesday morning, and really wanted to read a story for the prompt. Then I ended up writing a lot of this while I was on the plane on Tuesday. I hadn't read the book or seen the movie since like 1993, but I got it from the library early Wednesday morning and sped through the relevant parts to make appropriate changes (including my facepalm when I realized that Gertrudis canonically joined Villa's army -- I'd totally thought she was a Zapatista) and see how I'd done with tone.

This story is kind of like, things [personal profile] eruthros loves: magical realism, bodies, recipes, women's knowledge. Check. Also I really am going to nominate Around the Day in Eighty Worlds or Hopscotch or something next year.

Rough (anthropomofic web 2.0). Um. Well. I got home from doing all my Christmas shopping in basically two days and I was tired and cranky and I wanted to write some yuletide treats but I just couldn't face looking at source. So I wrote a story about the pages in yuletide archive instead, based on a prompt that I'd seen go by on the pinch hit list that had a line like "or anything really." I was careful to keep it under a thousand words, though, because [personal profile] elynross said somewhere that people could go wild for treats, and use just the fandom if we thought the recipient would like it, but that folks couldn't do that for full-length stories.

The Abbreviated History of the Flashlight (The Lost Room + four other crossovery fandoms). I wrote this in about half an hour, an hour before the end of yuletide uploads. I really liked the idea, but I think it came out very much rushed -- I'll have to try again when it's not, like, "aaaah do I post it or not?"

I also acquired source for two other treats I wanted to write, but I just couldn't face watching anything. Perhaps I will do them as NYR stories.
