So I realzied something today....

So remember when I said I'd post more. Yeah. I do too, the thing is that its been a crazy busy summer. Also I realized that all my LJ notifications are going to an old email (the one I had when I was a grad student) so I miss like everything. This will be fixed tonight. This way I can follow fandom, stay up to date on my friend's journal, and hopefully feel connected again.

I'm happy to see that some of my favorite authors from the trek fandom are writing in other fandoms that I read!  This makes me very very happy. Also I've been re-watching Gilmore Girls which has been a favorite of mine for a long time and I'm thinking of dabbling in GG fic! :D

Mostly I hope folks are doing well and I'm hoping to be more plugged in now. :D

Title: Stumbling Into Each Other is Complicated
Pairing: McCoy/Chapel, with an appearance by Janice Rand/Jim Kirk
Rating: PG-13
Prompt: From [info]fringedweller  who gave me: Chapel's been pining for McCoy for ages, but realizes in horror that she's slipped firmly into the 'good friend' zone. Urged by her friends on board the Enterprise, she starts to dip her toe into the dating pool. It's only when she's starting to see somebody else that McCoy realizes what an idiot he's been, and is determined to woo her into submission. But I sorta accidentally reversed it...sorry, hope you like it anyways. :/

Fic: Lost in Middle America

Title:  Lost in Middle America
Author's name
: sleepygoof8784 
Written for: orphica 
Pairing/characters: Chris/Zach
Rating: NC-17
Prompt: Chris and Zach are trapped/shipwrecked on a desert island. Chris is heteroflexible and eventually they use each other to relieve some sexual frustration. (It's not quite a deserted island, but they are trapped and need to work off some frustration
Disclaimer: So totally not mine. Also not mine? The West Wing, it;s characters and any dialogue I may have quoted from the episode 20 Hours in America in Season 4.
Note: As the disclaimer suggests this is somewhat of a West Wing AU. familiarity with the West Wing is not necessary to understand the prompt. All you need to know is that JJ is the President, the cast all works for him, and he is running for re-election. The story is based loosely (very very loosely) on the episode 20 Hours in America. Also it assumes that Indiana is still a state that does not include day light savings time. We do now, but I choose to ignore that. And finally to any Hoosiers I may have offended I apologize, though being a Midwesterner myself I play upon certain Midwestern Indiana stereotypes in the fic. 

Also a big big thanks to izzyfics for all her beta work. She looked at this at least three times, helped me with the sex stuff a bit and was just an all around great cheerleader. She's the best beta ever. :D  Oh and as always, comments are loved and cherished!

Ship Olympics, Wants You!

It’s not about the competition.
It’s not about the quality of the writing, the vidding or the graphics.
It’s not about the better, the superior, the greatest.
                                                                                      It’s about spirit. That you bring, that you create.
                                       The bonds you forge and the community that you become apart of it, that becomes part of you.

I'm shilling for Ship Olympic 'cause I hope you'll consider joining.  I signed up on almost the last day for last years Ship Wars and had an amazing time. I got to know a lot more people in the fandom. And got to know people I'd already met better (izzyfics I'm talking about you).

So sign up. It's not a huge time commitment and you don't have to submit something every week (I sure didn't last year). But it's great fun!

Join the Olympics  here (the sign up instructions, FAQ and what to expect are at the same place) or visit st_respect to get the lay of the land.
Title: The Groff Cure for Insomnia
Pairing: Jon Groff/Zach Quinto (haters gonna hate, but I'll squash wank like a cockroack)
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1244
Prompt: Someone at the zq_jg kink meme asked for a fic where Zach is looking so haggard in all the Berlin photos because he can't sleep with out Jon. This is my humble (and alas not porny) attempt to fill that prompt.
Disclaimer: I so do not know these people, and I make no profit from this work. Furthermore, I have nothing against the people and culture of France. I'm told it's a lovely place. :)
A/N: Not beta'd because I couldn't find anyone to look at it. Also, I did some basic research on J. Groff but not extensive because I'm sick. If I've gotten something wrong and lets say he had a spotted blue owl as a pet when he was a kid that I didn't include kindly let me know and I'll fix it-but lets not hate, 'cause I'm not in the mood to squash wanky stuff. And last but not at all least comments are, as always, loved and cherished. :D

"Jon, see the problem? FIX IT"Collapse )
