I wrote some fic because this video was too batshit to go without. (I know, somewhat belated, but that's just how I am. I.e. slow.)

Characters: Gabriel Landeskog, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Nathan MacKinnon
Summary:Gabe's clandestine motel room sex kink never actually stops being ridiculous.


Also I've been showing Aria Due South, which is a fun rewatch. I'd forgotten what a different show it was in S1 and 2. Additionally, two random things I've noticed: has Jonathan Toews secretly been attempting to base his career on Mark Smithbauer? You know, what with the coming from the frozen north to bring hope to Chicago's shitty hockey team, and also the inability to not check small children to the ice in order to WIN FOREVER? Granted, he's yet to take money to throw a game, but he has taken all of their money in order to play, and he's definitely there on the stupidly playing through injuries front.

Secondly, and less amusingly, the Inuit stories are increasingly frustrating now that I know something about First Nations storytelling traditions and it's not just that it's sort of awkward that the writers made things up and presented them as First Nations wisdom, but also you're not supposed to tell these things without giving names of either who told you them or who's in them (unless asked not to) and it's just weird as hell because it goes against everything Fraser is supposed to be that he doesn't. Obviously, the answer is that the writers didn't give a shit, but it's now really jarring to me. :/

A Good Head on His Shoulders and a Terrible Fucking Plan Anyway (2286 words) by opusculasedfera
Fandom: Hockey RPF
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Michael Del Zotto/Steven Stamkos
Summary: It's hard to offer to blow a guy to take his mind off things when he won't admit that they're on his mind in the first place.

Wrote some reality-ignoring Olympics break fluff. The real question is, can I call it hurt/comfort? It was trying to be! They just failed miserably, in an entirely lulzy, non-angst way. Which matches up really well with all the other tropes I've started for trope-bingo that are mostly people failing to live up to the trope! The question is, could I do a full bingo of people failing to trope or would it be a handful of random fics, as per usual? Otoh, does that matter?

Edmonton, Apparently, Is (3831 words) by opusculasedfera
Fandom: Hockey RPF
Rating: Explicit
Relationships: Jordan Eberle/Taylor Hall
Series: Part 2 of Some kind of Ontario STD
Summary: More genderswap, in the interests of what I am choosing to call fairness.


Also, let us all begin planning the Olympics porn, as increasing numbers of photos come out of the single beds and multiple roommate arrangements, ditto hints at roommate combinations. Pretty much all I want out of the Olympics is unexpected ships, honestly. Well, and good narrative. I'm not very good at patriotism.

"One should not enlarge on one's animals - but I thought you might like to know what a charming pair [of cats] attend us."
-Sylvia Townsend Warner to William Maxwell

The life philosophy of the internet, is it not? Particularly when you know it comes at the end of a lengthy letter detailing her cats' charms: one of many in this small volume. I have been reading Warner and Maxwell's letters (the collection is The Element of Lavishness, edited by Michael Steinman) and they are most delightful. Literary - they began to correspond when he was editing her short stories in the New Yorker - but also a record of a warm and loving friendship. The writing is beautiful and they're funny and charming and just a joy to read. Much admiration to the editor because there must have been quantities of stuff cut out (they wrote constantly between 1938 and 1978 and yet the book is barely 350 pages, and no one could have achieved that degree of quality unceasingly, surely?) and it still feels like a smooth narrative without gaps. They talk about books and major political events of the period and family life, and it is all immensely enjoyable. Highly recommended.


And I wrote some fic:
Basic Lagomorph Persuasion (2892 words) by opusculasedfera
Fandom: Hockey RPF
Rating: Explicit
Relationships: Beau Bennett/Robert Bortuzzo
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Always a Different Sex, Crossdressing, Halloween
Summary: Robert's life is very difficult and this outfit doesn't even fucking fit. Because there wasn't nearly enough porn about their halloween costumes.

Community S5E1 and 2

I don't know how I feel about the latest episodes of Community. For me, Community works best when it's about a real community college, even a surreal one. One that has ridiculous classes because there's a mandate to try and boost enrollment and someone said "sailing!" and someone else said "Who's the Boss!" but those are still real classes where someone is trying to teach you something about media and tv via outdated sitcoms. I like a lot of the character changes they've done - Troy and Abed moving in together and adding Annie, Jeff having to adjust to not being a wealthy lawyer, Shirley actually moving toward her dream, for just a few - but I feel like the show is at its worst when it doesn't want to be about a community college (which is of course a different thing than being a community college that is additionally an extremely serious Pillowfort Battlefield, or Law and Order spoof.) Also, there's a difference between being aware that your college lacks prestige and funding while containing messes and bad paperwork, and a school actually being a nonsense.

What do you guys think?


Also, entirely unrelatedly, I wrote a thing:

Fringe Exchange Reveals!

Today is the day of [community profile] fringe_exchange reveals! And if you haven't read all the excellent fics (and the one vid!) from that exchange yet, you should go do it.

I wrote a disgraceful charm (1007 words) for [personal profile] wendelah1
Fandom: Fringe
Relationships: Olivia Dunham/Esther Figglesworth
Summary:Two dames, an insufficient number of guns, and some bad jokes. A Brown Betty fic.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] maleyka and [livejournal.com profile] vampirespider for gently separating me from my adverbs and other betaing. Also thanks to [personal profile] mistfarer for helping me title this, even though I wouldn't let her read it because she hasn't seen the episode yet. (Ilu!)

I need more fic for this ship, seriously, but at least now there's something in their tag that isn't actually about other people? (Which, I shouldn't complain about because I wrote it. Oops.)

If you don't ship it already, may I direct your attention to these three videos, after which you will. They were such endearing tiny babies united in failure. :3

Summary:Tubes never turned into a girl before Jordan had had enough coffee to deal with it.

I kind of wanted to call it "Eating Your Feelings" but actually, that needs to be the title of an epic femslash fic about oral sex and denial. Someone who isn't me should get on writing that.

Daylight Seems to Want You (10910 words) by opusculasedfera
Fandom: Hockey RPF
Rating: Explicit
Relationships: Beau Bennett/James Neal
Additional Tags: Accidental Relationship, Furniture, Team Bonding
Summary: Beau has no idea what Nealer thinks he's doing, but he's into it anyway.

[livejournal.com profile] lena_reyes made a mix for it, and also came up with the title, which she generously allowed me to steal. (I like how it sounds serious and mood-setting, but also can be interpreted as a pun on 'Sunshine', which makes it basically "Yes, James, Beau does want to bang you." I am the most tasteful, y/y?)

Also I feel like I should have a Nealer icon or something because apparently writing all the fic about him is a thing that keeps happening and Oiler babies are not terribly relevant.


There is hockey tonight, because I really needed to get started on months of staying up too late for West Coast games. :P I mean, I'm excited, but also lolololol the first game I'm interested in is at 10pm because of course it is. And then the second one is 9:30pm the next day.


Fringe Exchange is rolling! I am not actually writing yet because I procrastinate like anything, but I'm excited!

[personal profile] mistfarer and I finally finished the (nearly) 40k of Sam Gagner/John Tavares that we've been writing since Christmas! It seemed like it would never end and I can't stop bouncing with delight! :D

Summary: Sometime between the cramped stall at that dingy bar last night and now, things have changed super drastically, and John's not quite sure if it's for the better. It's not even like Sam is doing anything. Or not doing something. John isn't sure what he wants right now, except possibly more coffee.

Comments and concrit much appreciated!



In other news. I've been listening to Minus Ten and Counting (filk album from 1983 about spaceflight.) I've heard parts of it before, but never the whole thing. I'm still massively susceptible to this kind of heartstring-tugging, it turns out, though it's infuriatingly jarring how probably more than half this album is written and/or sung by women, but every damn song is 100% male pronouns for everybody. I'm not shocked exactly, because 1983, but seriously, there were SO MANY WOMEN involved, who clearly did have exactly all these feelings about space being great that the songs all ascribe to men alone. It's frustrating, when everything else about the album is so good for me.

Yet more fic prompts

I keep writing things at [livejournal.com profile] home_ice, I guess? SFW fluff.

height difference (Sidney Crosby/Jordan Staal) )


not spring, not summer, and not fall (Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle) )

I'll have to remember that this format for prompts (make a secret list of six pairings, get someone to give you six prompts, match them up) apparently works really well for me! :D

There's a hockey prompt fest going on over here. If you want to leave me/someone else something, it's still going pretty strong.

My thread is here, but I'm reposting my ficlets below because I can.

So far I've written 3 things, all short and fluffy.

Say it like you mean it (Sidney Crosby/Matt Duchene) )


between the lines (Matt Duchene/Gabe Landeskog) )


Not!fic set after these wings are nothing like a gift (Paul Martin/James Neal, post-wingfic) )

I wrote more wingfic. I blame Aria for telling me that Nealer needed to deal with wings from all directions. Also for allowing me to title everything with puns. Love you!

Getting in a Flap (3960 words) by opusculasedfera
Fandom: Hockey RPF
Relationships: Evgeni Malkin/James Neal
Summary:"He's always like a bird," Duper says, flicking James in the head, "up here." James sulks.


Also I finally managed to finish Queen Victoria's Book of Spells, entirely because it needs to go back to the library tomorrow. I'm still grumpy about the amount of infodumping, but [personal profile] kyriacarlisle was right that at least the last story in the book wasn't unrelentingly bleak. I'm more or less okay with certain kinds of bleakness, like the story about the factory girl with phossy jaw where we all know she's never going to get cured, though that one could also have done with an editor to take a firm hand to entire pages of textbook prose about the Irish Potato Famine, but I just wanted to read about one damn relationship where people didn't love potion each other into friendship or marriage. These turned out to be few and far between. So, uh, warnings for assault, everybody!

It seemed cruel that this video had not so far inspired porn, so [personal profile] mistfarer and I wrote some.

Fandom: Hockey RPF
Rating: Explicit
Relationships: Gabriel Landeskog/Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Gabriel Landeskog/Ryan Nugent-Hopkins + Jonathan Huberdeau
Summary: Gabe laughs. "Well, what d'you want me to do? Jerk off?"
(Because that's definitely why they were given a camera and told to film shit at the draft.)


ETA: Oh, and I wrote this too, out of sheer pissiness that Tripp hasn't interrogated Stamkos enough about Jeff when he's managed to interrogate Neal about the both of them.

The writing of things!

I fail at posting regularly, but I wrote fic!

these wings are nothing like a gift (3488 words) by opusculasedfera
Hockey RPF
Paul Martin/James Neal
Summary: It seems unfair that Pauly looks this judgemental when James isn't even the one with inexplicable wings. (Essentially, it's wingfic. Also porn.)


Also ages ago I posted Put Your Back Into It which is Richards/Carter/Cabbie because this video gave me terrible ideas. It's also porn. Locked on AO3 because I don't trust Cabbie not to google himself.

I wrote a thing:

It's pretty much 17k of boys being ridiculous about each other, but possibly people are into that?

Assorted Fringe things

I finally caught up on Fringe!

some disjointed thoughts )


[community profile] fringe_exchange went well! Tons of fabulous stuff was posted and people who haven't should check it out! The masterlist is here, and the authors are slowly being revealed. I recorded a podfic of [personal profile] kerithwyn's Lift You Up Over Everything for [personal profile] cantarina which is now up on my AO3 here, and received a wonderful vid, and a fantastic fic, both featuring Astrid! Thanks so much to everyone who participated!
