Hello LJ-land! Long time no see! orz

I have a couple of backlogged challenge stories to repost here over the next little while (because I am just that kind of organized), and I successfully submitted a draft for spn_j2_bigbang, so see if you can spot me in the claims at the end of the week. ;) One of these days, I also intend to reply to all the lovely comments that people have left that I haven't answered yet. So if you get responses to year-old messages, it's because I'm full of fail.

In the meantime, though, I want to direct everyone's attention to this FANTASTIC art post that was done of one of my stories for the inaugural round of quicky_bang. Which is an amazing idea and, as I am a shameless hussy, I was all over the idea of getting some art for one of my stories.

stormbrite is a rockstar and decided to do art for Gratuitous Kitten Pin-Ups, which is actually the first thing that I ever wrote in the J2 fandom (for bonus dramatic irony, read my little preamble about writing RPS. I HAD NO IDEA). Ever since I wrote it, I have been yearning for someone to make me art of Jared covered in kittens and stormbrite delivered that in spades. So kudos to her for making my Jared-kitten dreams come true. Make sure to leave her all the love!

Delightful, the things that John would do for him when Sherlock said "please".Collapse )

Title: Out of Time
Author: cleflink
Artist: 2blueshoes
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: PG
Length: 9500
Warnings: historical violence
A/N: Written for the 2015 round of spn_reversebang. Most of the information about fencing comes from my brief foray as a member of the fencing team at my university, so I apologize if any of it is not as precise as it could be.
A million thanks to 2blueshoes for being amazingly talented and wonderfully tolerant of me when RL decided to go balls up on me. Thank you for working with me, hon! :) I can only hope that this story does a little bit of justice to her beautiful art, which you should all go look at and admire at her Art Post forthwith. Thanks also and always to our lovely mods who always do a masterful job. You make this challenge so much fun to participate in!

Summary: It wasn't like Jensen planned to find a door to the past on his college campus; things like that just sort of happen at college.


He hadn"t got more than a few paces when a guy dressed in leggings, a long, brass-buttoned coat, and carrying a sword rounded the corner towards him.Collapse )

Title: Silberwald
Fandom: CWRPS AU
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: PG
Word count: 7730
Warnings: Minor character death, a little bit of gore
A/N: Written for locifan who asked for a fairy tale with a Halloween twist for spn_j2_xmas. I'm, uh, not really sure how well that worked out, but here it is anyway. This story is based on The Twelve Dancing Princesses, with a little bit of Tam Lin thrown in for good measure. Thanks for waiting so patiently, locifan! I hope you enjoy!
Also available on AO3.

Summary: A modern fairy tale in which Jensen isn't a princess, but he still likes dancing, Jared is definitely not a knight in shining armour, and the homeless guy across the street is surprisingly knowledgeable about sinister goings-on.

Personally, Jared thought that this Jensen was kind of old to be having his parents keeping tabs on how often he went clubbing, but it wasn"t his job to question his clients" neurosesCollapse )

WOW, it is the second week of December. When did that happen? *flails* My new job is great, but holy hell, does it take up all my time.

Right, so! I'm giving no promises that they'll actually show up on time because I'm hella late, but would anyone like a Christmas card from me this year? Some of you have no choice in the matter, but please let me know if you would like one. I should rephrase that: if you got a card last year, I have your address and am ready to send you a card, but can you please touch base with me to confirm that you do, in fact, still live at it. :)

Comments are screened.

And, for your time, have a picture of one of the Macguyvered ornaments on my Christmas tree this year. Because this is the kind of family I have and it is glorious.


With a ho, ho, ho and a bottle of rum?

Seriously, how is this country even a real place? Every time the road bends, you see another mountain in the distance. Just stunning.

I hope everyone is having a good July!

I am going on vacation in two days! Exciting! However, I would most definitely rather do this meme than start packing, so please ask away!

Writerly questions under the cutCollapse )

I know I'm not usually one to signal boost, but I think I've got a couple other Trekkies on my flist and they are so close to making their goal that I want to try and help.

For the Love of Spock: A Documentary

This project is something that Leonard Nimoy was working on with his son, Adam, before he passed away. Adam is now trying to get the funds necessary to make it a reality. I would love to see this documentary get made and, hopefully, some of y'all would too.

A/N: Written for dognmonkeyshow in the Summer 2015 round of holmestice. The title is a reference to a chess manoeuvre used for capturing pawns.

Translation: I don"t know whom to trust and you seem my best option for a non-biased third party who won"t take advantage of the situation.Collapse )

Fic title: Judgment in Reverse
Author name: cleflink
Artist name: ldyghst
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: R
Word count: 30,900
Warnings: Coup-related violence, minor character deaths
A/N: Written for spn_j2_bigbang's 2015 round. The title is a reference to the Judgment Tarot Card.

Summary: In a world governed by order and logic, Jensen is a square peg in a round hole: the only person whose government-mandated prophecies are never right. When he receives a prophecy that he can't fake, however; he finds himself caught up in something that's much bigger than he realized. Something that threatens to rewrite everything he thinks he knows about the world. Something that threatens to topple the very foundations of his society.

Something that just might be magic.

Master Art Post


Acknowledgements: Thank you first and foremost to ldyghst, who chose my crazy little story for this challenge and made some absolutely lovely art for it. Despite the terrible first draft she read, ldyghst was able to create a very distinct and stylish feel for her art that complements this story more than I ever could have hoped for. She was also hella patient with me when things weren't finished on time, which I very much appreciate. Please head over to her Art Post and let her know how fabulous her art is!

dugindeep always deserves love, booze and chocolates from me when it comes to her awesomeness at brainstorming and sprinting. This year, I have to give her especial thanks for stepping in as a much-needed zero-hour beta. Don't know what I'd do without you, hon! (Fail miserably, most likely). Any inability to use the English language that still remains is totally my bad.

And finally, hooray for wendy for hosting this challenge year after year! You're awesome!

I hope you all enjoy this story!

Title: The Waters and the Wild: Part 1 - Primroses
Author: cleflink
Artist: siennavie
Pairing: Jared/Jensen preslash
Rating: PG
Word Count: 4400
Warnings: some swearing, tongue-in-cheek mentions of Jensen having a stalker
A/N: Written for the 2015 round of spn_meanttobe with some gorgeous art by the utterly incomparable siennavie! We have been doing an amazing job at just missing working with each other on a number of recent challenges, so when she asked me if I'd like to do a collaboration on this prompt, I jumped at the chance. Aaand then promptly failed to finish anything in a timely fashion because I am a terrible human being. It's been a pleasure, my dear! I look forward to building this little verse with you! Everyone, please make sure you head on over to the Art Post to tell siennavie how awesome she is!

As you can probably guess from the title, this story is the first in a series, which will be continuing later on this summer. Because I had more ideas than I gave myself the time to get down in writing and, this way, I get even more art. Huzzah. :) Also available on AO3.

Summary: In which Jensen gets a stalker who turns out to be rather more than meets the eye.

Normally, throwing a word like "stalker" around in a police station was a good way to get people arrested, but it never quite worked that way when Jensen was involved.Collapse )

Hi all,

A kind soul on AO3 brought this issue to my attention yesterday and, since I haven't seen it appear on my LJ flist yet, I thought I would signal boost the information.

There is a website called Ebooks Tree that has been taking ebook files from various places - including AO3 - and putting them up for 'free' download for their paying customers. This is happening to published authors as well as fanfic writers, so it's kind of a big deal, but AO3 is advising any writers whose work appears on this website to submit a DMCA complaint in the hopes that it might galvanize the website to do something.

There is more information about how to go about doing this here and here.

*heavy sigh* The Internet is such a bullshit place, sometimes.

spnspringfling drew to a close last week and this is me, being fashionably on time as ever. orz I received a beautiful story from wings128, who totally knocked her first springfling out of the park. Hiatus shares a lovely moment of peace and connection between Sam and Dean in the midst of the grief caused by Dean's Mark. The descriptions are utterly gorgeous, and I adore the sense of playfulness at the end. I also love stories where Sam gets to take care of Dean, for once. So yes! Go read!

And my own offering! Which is totally not my usual style at all! Which seems to be my thing for this challenge, for some reason.

Title: I Am the Shadow on the Moon at Night
Fandom: CW RPS
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: PG
Word count: 1440
A/N: Written for riyku for spnspringfling's 2015 round. Her prompt was 'the witching hour', which I had far too much fun with. Title is from 'This Is Halloween' from The Nightmare Before Christmas. Originally posted here. Also available on AO3.

Summary: Jared's been waiting a long time for this night.

He always had worn wildness well.Collapse )

Title: The Lord of Ice and Snow
Fandom: BBC Sherlock
Pairing: Sherlock/John
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 2475
Warnings: dub-con of the god/sacrifice variety
A/N: Written for the 5th round of come_at_once for the prompt "Just because there's a little snow on the roof...". This was originally going to be a silly little bit of post-case sexytimes, but then this idea happened. I regret nothing. Aside from the fact that it is still fucking winter.
Also available on AO3.

Summary: In order to convince the Lord of Ice and Snow to let winter come to an end, the people of Monatis have arranged a sacrifice. His name is John.

Those piercing eyes wouldn"t have looked out of place on an ice drake, John couldn"t help but thinkCollapse )
