Concrit welcome
Banner created by love_jackianto/berlinghoff79

This journal welcomes constructive criticism of my own writing as well as the sharing of personal opinions in both open and locked posts (about fanfic, pet peeves, myself, frozen peas, the weather...). I don't care if you agree or disagree with me on a subject - in fact, feel free to try and change my opinion on anything. You have every right to call me on my bullshit, just as I reserve myself the right to go on anyway.

Also! If you want to do a podfic, remix, prequel, sequel, missing scene or whatever to one of my stories, you have blanket permission, no need to ask. Go ahead, have fun, and drop me a line if you post something so I can come squee. ♥


(Almost) all entries except for fic and other assorted fannish stuff are friends only or private.

Also, in lieu of cluttering up my profile pageCollapse )

Character Love Meme

lavvyan: kissing fish by luna61
Meme snagged from sorchasilver because I'd like to be more actively fannish than just staring at the shiny on Tumblr.

This post is for drive-by nuggets of joy about your favorite character! So here we go. Give me your favorite (or a favorite) character's name in comments, and I will tell you one thing (or several) about them that fills me with joy. It can be a fandom I am in, used to be in, maybe mentioned once in a blue moon.

If you know I've seen it/read it, it counts. (Stuffs wot I'm watching right now: Elementary, Hawaii Five-0, Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, Sleepy Hollow, Sherlock, and HitRECord on TV.)

You may find way more fandoms I like at my Tumblr than here on LJ. Sorry. :(

I also may have signed up for the SGA RBB. I hope this'll end up in a big bucket of yay instead of tears.

Hawaii Five-0 - slashiest episodes to watch? I ran out of podfic and downloaded some Danny/Steve, and I sorta wanna watch the source material but not the whole of it.

Thanks in advance!


'nother year older

lavvyan: kissing fish by luna61
Many thanks to houseinrlyeh, anmkosk and simboo for the rl presents. Many yays were heard throughout the house (at half-past five in the morning, ahem).

Thanks to iadorespike, neevebrody, debris_k, forcryinoutloud and winkingstar for the profile gifts, and trystings for the sketch on tumblr.

Thanks also to berlinghoff79, trobadora, regonym, mirabile_dictu, elli, kensieg, mrlnpndrgn, kestrel337, velocitygrass, rawa02 and pennyplainknits for posting, messaging, e-mailing, tumblr-asking and otherwise thinking of me, or even gifting and messaging!

You all made me beam stupidly at the monitor. <3

(Did I forget anyone? I didn't forget anyone, did I?) ETA: I forgot hull1984! I'm so sorry, and thank you for thinking of me!

(I also got a birthday hug from my office crush, which also made me beam stupidly for at least an hour after. Yes, it's still unrequited. Yes, it's been about 3 years now. Yes, I really am that hopeless.)

I made a thing.

lavvyan: kissing fish by luna61
I got into crotcheting this summer (don't ask me how), and I just finished my first Thing that wasn't just for practising. (Look, Bee, I made something!)

cut for picturesCollapse )

I'm looking forward to wearing this. It's nothing fancy, but I made it myself so whatever. :D

I've also fallen into the trap that is Ravelry, so if you have any hints or suggestions re: not getting lost on there, I'd be grateful.

Next project: Matching gloves!

Fic: These Things Happen (Clint/Phil, PG)

lavvyan: kissing fish by luna61
Title: These Things Happen
Pairing: Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, Steve Rogers/Tony Stark (background)
Fandom: Avengers/Phantom of the Opera Fusion
Rating: PG
Word count: ~3.500
Warnings/Content: Clint's potty mouth
Notes: I managed to write myself into a corner with my Big Bang fic and got stuck, so I dug out the notebook (the one made of actual paper) and kicked my muse the old-fashioned way. Now my hand hurts. Not beta-read, so beware of tenses all over the place and completely unrealistic depictions of opera goings-on.
Summary: Clint's dancing sucked, but it seems the ghost isn't paying attention anymore.

The Opera Ghost takes an interest in young tenor Steve Rogers. Clint isn't jealous.

At all.


Read it on the AO³

Or read it under the cutCollapse )


It's alive!

lavvyan: kissing fish by luna61
If not kicking, but I'm getting there.

How've you been? I've recently started watching Suits and am (unsurprisingly, lalala...) developing a Thing for Harvey Specter. Eh. Also Arthur/Eames. Fell into Teen Wolf for a while, but thank god that's mostly over.

So, any fannish news? Reasons to celebrate? Commiserate? Want a hug? I give great hugs.


My Ficcish Year in Review (Meme)

lavvyan: meme by berlinghoff79
The year's over but I'm too lazy to edit the questions. I don't usually do this, but since the watch_along crowd didn't run away while I was discovering the AO³ stats at them: let me talk at you about my fic. What little of it there is, anyway; 2012 was not a prolific year.

My best story(ies) of this year:

Catch Your Voice, hands down. I had months to write it, which gave me a lot of time for fiddling, and I'm pretty sure the result is my best work yet, not only in 2012.

more yadda yaddaCollapse )

I'd like to thank the academy...

kisahawklin! She made Catch Your Voice so much better and has been an amazing beta reader for years now. I really don't know what I'd do without her.

Also, debris_k for last-minute proofreading! You're invaluable, dear.

Many thanks also to seikaitsukimizu, ladyflowdi and ladyamarra for cheerleading when I was close to throwing in the towel.

And to everyone who left comments and kudos or even just read a story and liked it. You're the best.


On the subject of fruit

lavvyan: kissing fish by luna61
I'm having this interesting conversation with kisahawklin about fruit and where to store it. Apparently in her corner of the world, fruit bowls are a fascinating and unknown thing whereas where I'm from, you get them in all shapes and sizes and, well, that's where you put fruit. Cultural differences for the yay!

So! Poll time!

Poll #1887366 Fruit!

Where do you put fruit?

into a bowl
into the fridge
into those hanging basket-type things
somewhere else but I won't say where
somwhere else and I'll tell you below

somewhere else: where?

Tell me where you live? If you don't want to name the country, "Eastern Europe" or "Northern US" is fine

by lavvyan, age mumblemumblecough I LOOK YOUNGER OKAY

- When engaged in conversation, one must use the other's name as frequently as possible. "Do you want more milk, David?" "No, thank you, Norma, I've just eaten the last cookie." "Well, David, if you're sure." "Yes, Norma, I am. Thanks, Norma." "You're welcome, David."

- The moment someone expresses romantic interest in someone else, they're immediately threatened with physical harm by their intended's friends and/or parents. This 'shovel talk' is completely normal and therefore not creepy at all, though the recipient of that speech is always genuinely scared.

- Hot water is a precious, precious commodity and using up the last of it is the height of insults.

- When in doubt, ice cream.

- When you have a crush on someone, you just yank them close and kiss them. Asking for consent isn't customary.

- There is no name too short to be turned into a nickname.

- All the food is kept in the fridge. Yes, all of it. Even oranges.

(I will forever wonder which of these things are actually true.)

Two Avengers stories

lavvyan: kissing fish by luna61
Title: The Things You Need to Know
Pairing: Clint Barton/Phil Coulson
Fandom: Avengers Movie 'verse
Rating: R
Word count: ~3,200
Warnings/Content: Contains bondage and hints of D/s. Also, the basic set-up can be read as slight dub-con.
Notes: Written for the 2012 Avengers Fest. Many thanks to debris_k for the beta!
Summary: Let's just say that Clint's post-mission sessions aren't rewards as much as they are sweet, sweet torture.

Read it on LJ | Read it on the AO³


Title: Winner Takes It All, Or: Five People Who Wondered and One Who Didn't Have to
Pairing: Clint Barton/Phil Coulson
Fandom: Avengers Movie 'verse
Rating: PG
Word count: ~ 4,600
Warnings/Content: Some slight references to comic book violence
Notes: Written for the 2012 Avengers Fest (yay pinch-hits! *coughs*). Many thanks to debris_k for the beta!
Summary: Tony can't figure out if Clint and Agent are married or not, so he does the next logical thing: he starts a betting pool.

Read it on LJ | Read it on the AO³


Fic: As the Story Goes (Derek/Stiles, R)

lavvyan: kissing fish by luna61
Title: As the Story Goes
Pairing: Derek Hale/Stiles Stilinski
Fandom: Teen Wolf (yes, really *facepalms*)
Rating: R
Word count: ~1.900
Warnings/Content: no warnings apply
Notes: This is for berlinghoff79, awful enabler that she is.
Summary: No, really. Stiles' life sucks. He's lying in a musty old bed in a musty old cottage, wearing a not-quite-so-musty-after-he's-washed-it-twice nightshirt and nothing else. There was a wig, but he conveniently lost it in the washing water because honestly, it's not like anyone's going to believe he's a little old woman anyway, what with the lack of age and breasts and general womanhood.

Not that it makes any difference to the story, except maybe for the wolf. Stiles is willing to bet that he'll taste a lot better than any old woman
when he gets eaten, Brothers Grimm, he hates Scott so much.

Commercial break

lavvyan: kissing fish by luna61
Gutter-A-Go-Go is a campaign to allow The Cultural Gutter to continue providing thoughtful, well-written analyses of disreputable art.

We lost our funding and now we need your help to stay online and pay our writers for their work!

The Cultural Gutter is a website ( dedicated to thoughtful writing about disreputable art, genres and media: fantasy, science fiction, comics, romance, genre movies, tv and video games. The Gutter was Founded in 2004 by Jim Munroe after a SXSW panel on “Why I Dig Working In The Cultural Gutter.” Since then, our site has maintained a commitment to quality writing and paying writers for their work for almost a decade across three blogging platforms, four cities in two countries, two site designs, eight contributing editors and two publishers, in the face of catastrophic data corruption, and, most recently, loss of our operations grant.

The Gutter-A-Go-Go campaign is a fundraiser to cover The Gutter's operational costs. It will enable us to continue paying both writers and our web host through 2013, work on improving the site, help promote The Cultural Gutter, collaborate on projects with likeminded sites and artists, and develop a long term plan for funding the site.

There are perks if you donate, too. If you're interested in this kind of stuff, hop on over and see if you find something that tickles your fancy.

lavvyan: kissing fish by luna61
Title: Catch Your Voice
Author: lavvyan
Pairing: Clint Barton/Phil Coulson
Fandom: Avengers movie 'verse
Rating: PG-13-going-on-R for violence and Clint's potty mouth
Word count: ~14,200
Warnings/Content: Comic book violence, mind control, perceived character death
Notes: This story contains a little bit of dialogue from Thor in pt. 11 and from The Avengers in pt. 15. I'm ignoring the official Marvel Avengers Timeline because no way did all that shit go down in just a week. Also, title nicked from Shakespeare because if you're not making up your own you might as well steal from a popular source. Many thanks to kisahawklin for the marvellous beta and to everyone who kept me from throwing up my hands and abandoning this story to the elements, especially seikaitsukimizu, ladyflowdi and ladyamarra. It really does take a village.
Summary: Clint keeps telling himself he's not obsessed with Coulson. From the way Natasha keeps laughing at him, she's not buying it either. But it's only a crush if you know what the other guy actually looks like, right?

The really important part: This was written for marvel_bang (I failed to fail at a sorta-big bang, whee!) and I'm twice-blessed because I got to work with two generous and talented artists who were a joy to collaborate with. Click on the previews to see their work!

Part 2


Did I just miss the announcement?

lavvyan: kissing fish by luna61
Is it compulsory now to put the word 'literally' into every other fic and tumblr post and random TV show?

"The bed is literally only ten feet away." - But metaphorically, it might as well be on another planet?

"I am literally overjoyed right now." - Is that like a drug fix? Will you have the munchies later?

"If you died, I'd literally get out of my mind." - And... die as well of the resulting gore? Is there a little stepladder inside your brain? How would you do that?

"He literally sprinted into the room." - As opposed to his normal way of allegorically sprinting into a room by dressing up as Florence Griffith-Joyner and reciting a random fact about the Ancient Olympic Stadium?

Is literally the new actually? Do I need to start doing this? Will I lose readers if I don't? Did I literally put too many question marks into this post? Will they stain?
