Still Alive

Hey, long time, no see…  >_>

I had to take a break from Fandom–there were some things  that kind of ‘destroyed the joy’ for me and I needed to step away. So I wandered the Earth, having adventures…well, not really Earth, more like Thedas,  Tamriel,  a few Mass Effect relays, a brief career as a test subject at Aperture Labs, and I own way too much property in a Steampunk sim in Second Life. Then Juno tempted me back into writing with Star Trek fic.

I hadn’t finished or posted any fic in four years(!!). I just started to really write again in the past year or so (a few pokes at The Wanderers (LOTR), plus some dabbling in Dragon Age, Doctor Who, and Once Upon a Time), but the Trek fic is the first thing I’ve actually finished and posted since December 2009.

Juno pointed this challenge out to me, so I figured it would be a good way to get back into Fandomy things:

Day 1 is to rec three of your own works.

#1. Hope for Tomorrow (website|AO3) is my Star Trek fic, which is the backstory for a second story, Lower Decks (website|AO3). These are tie-ins to JunoMagic’s Kirk/Spock story, Resilience of Hope. The stories are Scotty/shameless Mary Sue self-insert OFC. Hope for Tomorrow is Len Amell’s backstory and Lower Decks is a chapter-by-chapter alternate POV to Juno’s story. I’m having so much fun writing this with Juno–it’s been way too long since I’ve been able to have fun with writing like this.

#2. Greater Than the Sum of Its Parts is a  drabble I wrote from the POV of Green Lantern Dkrtzy RRR (a sentient mathematical progression). The drabble is written in the form of a Fibonacci Sequence (first line is 1 word, second is 1 word, third is 3 words, fourth is 5 words, etc.). I love the “odd” GLs (Dkrtzy RRR, Leezle Pon, Mogo), and the added limitations on the drabble were a fun challenge.

#3. From Buckland With Love is the first short story I wrote for my Epic Hobbit Soap Opera. It features Ivy’s younger brother, Theo, in a sort of hobbit spy caper. I adore Theo, he quickly became one of my favorite characters, and this was a blast to write. This story never got much love, which disappointed me, so I’m reccing it.
