After hearing about the server migration, I went ahead and deleted my Livejournal. Talk about the end of an era - even though I hadn't crossposted there in years, it was still kind of comforting to know that my old posts were still kicking around on Paradox or Buffy Top 5.

I know fandom is currently enamored with Imzy, but I'm really holding out hope that Pillowfort is the platform of choice for the next big migration. Beta access keys should be sent out in the next couple of weeks, and I'm excited to actually try the site out; it looks like it'll be a solid combination of the ease and pacing of Tumblr with the threaded commenting and communities of LJ/DW.

I didn't do an end-of-year writing meme for 2016 (because I posted so little fic!), but here's five things I'd like to get done this year:

  1. Write and post the next part of Crucible, which has basically been my goal for the past two years. I have made no forward progress!!! Hopefully Andromeda's release with strike a spark.

  2. Stark Disassembled. The first part received about -5 attention, but I'm still really digging the idea of getting the other four parts up; that's a story I'm writing for myself.

  3. Finish all my giftfic by the end of March! I have one long overdue Hawke/Varric fic that is my current priority, and I'm offering two stories for the Fandom Trumps Hate auction.

  4. I'm moving into 2017 with a substantial bit of work done on three longer one-offs: Bliss, a Luke/Mara AU where Mara is roped into building the New Jedi Order; Conversational, a Buffy/Spike post-canon fic where I work out all my NFA feelings; and Raising Hypatia, which is 7k of Sheldon, Penny, and their daughter, because I still haven't gotten out from under that fandom's thumb. None of them will take much time to finish.

  5. Write more Hawke. Hawke is so much fun to write. I should finally make that Hawke/Cassandra thing happen.

Title: Zero Sum (Stark Disassembled 1/5)
Characters: Tony/Steve
Wordcount: 24170
Summary: Execute program.
Notes: This AU retelling is set in a kitchen-sink continuity based on the comics with elements from the movies. I really wanted the freedom to explore Tony's internal processes during certain arcs without being sidetracked by plot points that I find either too big or too clunky to retain without exploration, so there are no Skrulls, no amnesia, and no magic bullets here. The Ten Rings are both a terrorist organization and a set of alien artifacts, and Stark Industries stopped manufacturing weapons as soon as Tony returned from captivity, but Hank and Jan are founding Avengers, Rhodey is a Marine, and Steve has been one of Tony's closest friends for a decade or more.

My characterization is sketchy, my technobabble is sketchier skill, I did not show any work re: continuity, and the team line-up keeps slipping further and further into Ultimates territory, but [tumblr.com profile] monsterharvest, [tumblr.com profile] odylism, and [tumblr.com profile] jedi-goldberry-with-the-force did a fantastic job of curbing my more egregious errors; this would be a measurably lesser story without their help and hard work. (Thanks, guys!!)

Content warning for suicidal ideation about in line with what you'd find in the source material, graphic fight scenes, discussion of alcoholism, and minor character death. This story is formatted with a custom skin and will (definitely!) look better if you make sure custom skins are enabled.

Tonight was my first night DMing anything whatsoever, and boy howdy I did not need to write out twenty-six pages of backstory when I had to off-the-cuff most of the evening. It was fun (much fun!), but I don't particularly enjoy improvising or acting or having a group of people look at me; what I like is building the world and populating the world with characters and drawing maps. Writing. That is called writing. I like the writing part.

I also miss playing my grouchy half-elf ranger and not having to convince two-thirds of the adventuring party that the young woman sitting by her wagon and crying about a broken wheel really isn't part of an ambush and that maybe tying her up and terrorizing her isn't the greatest idea, although it is awfully fun to come up with ideas for secret doors.

Once upon a time I started writing a Kylo Ren/Hux AU where they were only horrible in petty ways and where Ben had three younger siblings named Jacen, Jaina, and Anakin and here it is and I remain very fond of it, thank you.

Doctor Strange was great but what I really want to talk about is one very specific reaction I had to it: I am so tired of Supporting Girlfriend, and I am so tired of being tired of Supporting Girlfriend. This is not a complaint about any one character – it is not a complaint about Jane Foster or Pepper Potts or Christina Palmer in particular – but it is a complaint about how superhero films are structured over and over to make The Girl Character an accessory to the story of Our Square Jawed Hero, sometimes to the extent that we have almost no sense of The Girl Character outside of her relationship with Square Jaw.

This is a role complaint, not a character complaint. I like Supporting Girlfriend (she’s at the top of her field and willing to call Square Jaw on his shit!); I would like a movie centered around Supporting Girlfriend; I would also like a superhero movie about a superhero who is also a woman where her story drives the action and her needs are paramount rather than ancillary. Maybe she was originally a Supporting Girlfriend, and maybe not! I can’t afford to be picky. I am so ready for Captain Marvel. I am SO READY FOR WONDER WOMAN. And where is my Black Widow movie.

There must be other people out there excited for Infamous Iron Man, right? Right?? There is so much potential for hilarity there. Like, what if in every issue, Doom alters one more piece of his flashy new armor to look like like traditional Doom attire until by issue #15 he’s literally just this:
