[sticky post] About Me

Warning: I love unabashedly and fully
- I probably love a character you dislike -
Haters leave your hate at the door or don't come in.

I'm a 20-something female getting my Masters in English at a not-top University. This blog began (oh so long ago) as a literal journal, a private space to write in (born and bred Mormon - could never quite kick the obsessive need to journal EVERY SINGLE MOMENT OF MY LIFE, even after declaring self Atheist Pagan) but within a couple of years became mostly a fandom spot. I'm a Literature person (and a Theory-head to boot) so sometimes I will get a little... nutty about things - particularly TV.

THESIS: Currently working on (/talking about working on) the dynamics of fanfiction and Buffy - particularly focusing on Dawn. If you want to talk to me about how much you (a) love/hate Joss (b) love/hate fandom (c) love/hate writing (d) LOVE Dawn's cute little mug OR any combination of these .... right now this is what I live for :)

Most postings are Open - I'm not really afraid of lurkers (especially since most of the time - I am one!) - except those personal or directed to my flist especially. HOWEVER! Feel free to friend me, I may not friend back right away unless you comment/talk to me regularly - or I've seen your shiny self around. Feel free to comment here if you have any questions or just want me to know who you are!!! *waves* Hello stalkers!

[pimp] one final plea

I know this month's experiment may be throwing some people off - but it's fully-open prompting and writing, the real challenge will be for participants as readers this round, being more open to reading something that may not be in their special favorite wheelhouse.

I'm going to give sign-ups another like 24ish hours to see if anyone else is willing to jump on board and give it a try.

Come play with us!

I'm alive. Let's pimp.

Yes yes, I'm not dead. I got a new job and had a 2hr commute in the am and pm. So for the past month I've been mainlining the Good Wife and Melissa and Joey and also now addicted to Sips bc that's how I roll these days and knitting mitts for happyg_rl. Even though she's well into her first Stephen West shawl and can probably make her own damn mitts. But! I moved! (That's the point of this story omfg wut) and my commute is much nicer and my cat is verrry happy that we are single ladies alone in our own space, so there's more time for writing and modding. yay.

Anyway, I'm here. I'm alive. I don't see myself getting back into active-tumblr status anytime soon bc (a) I'm behind on all the shows and (b) I'm at a computer all day for work and afterwards just want to do something else! This doesn't mean that I don't love you - so feel free to yell at me. I update my Instagram pretty regularly (kwritten) and Snapchat sometimes (k_written) if you do that kind of thing. I'm around, even if it seems like I'm completely absent.

Anyway, I still have mod-responsibilities, even if I am a 10/10 fail at modding most of the time :)

LET'S MEME BECAUSE WHY THE HELL NOT

Stealing this one from ever_neutral who adapted it for tv after stealing it from theramble.

Fandoms for whoever can see this post and wants to play::

the character/member i would invite for pretentious philosophical conversations over wine:
the character/member i'd want as my older sibling (regardless of their actual age):
the character/member i'd want as my twin:
the character/member i'd want as my younger sibling:
the character/ member whose fashion i want to steal:
2 characters/members for a threesome:
my ideal team-up/subunit:


Also tell me how you are and what I've missed!

[pimp]

lol what is this journal anymore? I only come around to pimp out my own comms/events apparently. sorry for the ridiculousness of me?

To prove that I love you all and that I'm still here to talk, let's do a meme! (made up on the fly to prove something to myself that you all probably don't even care about)

(1) tell me one headcanon that you have about me / my life / my habits and I will tell you if you are right or wrong
(2) comment with a pairing or character and I will tell you one headcanon that I have about their mundane existence (domestic stuff, brand of socks, cereal preference, etc)

#kiss your girl
submit finished fanworks on ao3
As many of you probably already know, last night another canon lesbian was shot and killed minutes after a love scene with the woman of her affection. Understandably, many fans (and non-fans) of The 100 are hurt and betrayed by yet another tv lesbian being killed on-screen.

Amidst the outrage, anger, and hurt - wlw are coming together to support and give encouragement.

Your love is valid.
Your love is beautiful.
Your love is strong.

You are valid, important, lovely.
Your anger is beautiful and valid.
Your hope is affirming and valid.


For the next week (or however long it lasts), femslashbb will be hosting a free-for-all, multi-fandom commentathon celebrating women who love women.

fic: growing you and me

fic: growing you and me
fandom: btvs
pairing: dawn/Illyria
recipient: for snickfic who wanted the pairing and "growing things" for fem-feb ((sorry this is so late but RL has been a little nuts!))
setting: LA post-NFA


[peter dont you know what a kiss is]Sunnydale was a hole in the ground.

Los Angeles was a burning wreckage.

She supposed that maybe the world didn’t revolve around Southern California and that the disasters that her blood wrought were only a very small problem in comparison with worldwide hunger and disease and (if the talking heads Wesley found so fascinating these days were anything to go by) political corruption.

She also supposed that maybe her blood hadn’t decimated her only known world - like Spike kept whispering to her over and over and over and over and over and …





I need a change of scenery, she had said it like a command like a plea like a little girl begging for a toy please please please listen listen listen

h e a r m e


Buffy had blinked, Sure? Where do you want to go?

Fred called a few days later, and it was decided decided decided. Like all it would take is a new war zone to make her feel like a human being again.

The country the planet the universe the infinite was a war zone there was no where to find peace and anyway, what would she do with something so fragile?





Didn’t take long for it all to come crashing down. For Fred to not be Fred for Spike to get delusions of grandeur and forget about her for Harmony to betray everyone for the world to turn to smoke and ashes and a little girl in the middle laughing and laughing and laughing because thank god this feels normal.





“You are too green,” she said like it didn’t mean far too much.

“You are too blue,” Dawn had sassed back. She was a teen. She was allowed to be sassy even in the aftermath of tragedy. Everything was the aftermath of a tragedy, there was no reprieve, this was the one thing she was certain of.

This wasn’t their first conversation or the most important or one that meant more than any other. It wasn’t even a conversation, it was a passing of insults between two creatures too old and too young and too fresh and cracking with their age that had learned at some indeterminate point that words were slippery, nebulous things they wanted no affiliation with.






“Dennis says things are weird,” she offered to Angel and the team, sometime after the entire world crashed around their ears.

“No shit?” Gunn spit out. Immortality was an ill-fitting suit on him. “I saw a dragon fly past my window this morning. I think things are a bit more than just fucking weird.”

Dawn squinted at him and then left.

She had nothing to fear from anything outside the crumbled remains of the Hyperion. She kept house in Cordy’s old apartment because otherwise Dennis would be lonely and she had feelings about ghosts feeling lonely.

There was too much on everyone’s mind to notice that she wasn’t as afraid as someone her size and age should be. She didn’t blame them. They had turned the known world into hell, that kind of guilt could blind even the best kind of people.

And they weren’t the best kind of people.






“You are too green,” she said from the doorway, head cocked to one side.

“Go to hell,” Dawn called from her kitchen.

“The others think we are already there.” She paused, stepping into the living room delicately. “You do not.”

“It’s just an expression, and you know that,” Dawn had very little patience for immortal gods that pretended they didn’t understand humanity. It was stale. It tasted like a game on her tongue and she was too young to be interested in games.

“But that’s not why you said it.”

Dawn handed her a beer from the fridge and didn’t respond.

It was interesting being seen, if only for a moment, and by something not-quite human.

Who was human these days anyway? Humanity was fucking overrated.






Things were weird, Dennis didn’t lie. The world was adjusting. The harder the Hyperion Team fought to get things back the way they were, the more the earth welcomed the changes with open arms.

She didn’t say anything. She selfishly didn’t want to them to know she wasn’t interested in fighting. She relied on their good opinion of her.

“You like it this way,” they sat on her balcony and watched a group of winged beasts dance through the night sky.

“Don’t you?” Dawn replied.
Illyria blinked at her,”I like you this way.”

And that felt like nothing at all.






“Things are getting better!” Angel’s eyes were a little manic. “We’re winning!”

Spike warned her with his eyes not to laugh, and so she disappeared out the door. Something with a bloody snout begged for food and she smiled at it because it belonged to her.

They were losing and knew it.

She skipped all the way back to her apartment.






“Nothing grows here,” Gunn whined.

And that wasn’t strictly true. Things were beginning to grow. Small infants were blossoming into monsters. Steam was building into volcanoes. The world was shifting and growing and changing all around them. Everything was black and red and grey and purple and metallic.

What he meant was: nothing that I know grows here. I cannot recognize the world outside my window.

What he meant was: this fruit is wrong this sky is wrong this ground is wrong.

What he meant was: I don’t fit here.

“She does,” Illyria said, glancing at Dawn.

No one noticed. She was prone to say things they didn’t want to understand.

Ignorance is bliss.









There were strange plants on her balcony, in her bathroom, in her kitchen, clinging to the walls of the living room. Plants that nipped at her heels with affection as she walked by, with brilliant neon blooms, with intoxicating and possibly poisonous scents, bearing fruit that looked like a challenge more than a food.

She ate more than any of them, was the strongest, she was flourishing as they died slowly.

Illyria liked to stand in her living room, still as a statue, arms and legs outstretched, letting the vines reach and reach and reach towards her like she belonged to them. She wanted to belong to them. She wanted to belong there. She never said it outloud because words didn’t mean enough.






“You kiss like a child,” she said with a scowl.

“I am a child!” Dawn laughed. “What is childish about my kissing?”

“You are too eager, too hungry,” she said these things as if they were the most precious things in the whole world. She was very bad at insults these days.

Dawn’s eyes flashed, and she preceded to show Illyria just how hungry she was.






They stopped checking in at the Hyperion. Stopped going out on campaigns to kill the demon hordes.

They spent a lot of time wrapped around each other, naked and eager.

“These bodies,” Illyria marveled. “They are truly superior.”

Dawn nodded sagely, “To be woman is to be divine.”

They didn’t laugh. They were divine.




They only laughed at lies.






“I found you something today,” she was holding something behind her back and Dawn jumped in her eagerness. Sometimes she was still the smallest, smallest, smallest baby that had ever been born. Probably because she had never experienced birth. Something about the pressure and pain and stress of birth makes adults of us all. She didn’t have this reality pressing on her bones.

She held out a plant, something like a tree, it’s long black roots already twinning between her fingers.

It was their first sign that the world was moving on, growing and learning and adapting. Dawn put it on her balcony and smiled.

“We should name her,” she said excitedly.

“A plant does not need a name,” Illyria scolded.

“Everything that grows needs a name,” Dawn countered, wrapping her arm around Illyria’s waist. Something immortal stiffened in fear and something desperately human melted. Or the reverse.

Dawn pressed a chaste kiss on Illyria’s lips, “I will name her kiss.”






Illyria brought her a thousand plants, searched the whole desiccated city for anything growing, bringing them back in her small hands.

For each she received a kiss.

And it was the start of something or nothing.

They stopped going to the Hyperion, let the memories of their bodies die and became something new.

Maybe they grew.

Femslash February

I was going to do this later, but it’s never too early to start! Every February, I ask for femslash prompts to fill the Valentine’s month up with ladies.

The rules are super simple: send me an ask/im/pm with a date and a pairing + prompt and on that day I will post a ficlet of at least 500 words.

All pairings must be f/f - but crossovers are obviously welcome.
(In the past, I've allowed gen requests, so if you have a particularly niggling prompt that is gen, that's cool with me, too. As long as it includes 2+ women and men are not the focus.)

Feb 1 - [girl meets world] riley/maya, drawings on foggy windows (for happyg_rl)
Feb 3 - [btvs] Buffy/Anya “a one time thing” (for @centrumlumina)
Feb 5 - [gossip girl] blair/jenny or blair/vanessa - convent vs coven / the difference between rivals and god (for clockwork_hart1)
Feb 7 - [raven cycle] - everyone’s a girl (for MYSELF)
Feb 9 - [tvd/btvs] Elena/Dawn “this is not a perfect beach day” “this is the pacific northwest, this is as good as it gets” (for happyg_rl)
Feb 11 - [100/dw] clara/raven, flying vs falling (for clockwork_hart1)
Feb 13 - [btvs] Willow/Kennedy egg rolls (for snogged)
Feb 15 - [btvs] Dawn/Illyria - growing things (for snickfic)
Feb 20 - femslash-minis!

JANUARY ANNOUNCEMENTS!!!!

I'M BACK AND THIS TIME IT'S FOR REAL!


IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN!!!! GO FORTH AND SIGN UP!!!

Reminder of the rules::
+ Minimum 5k of fic for the challenge (does not need to be one fic, this can be a collection of smaller ones totalling 5k)
+ 1k of fic for the monthly challenges (note: you don’t need to be signed up for the year to do these, and they can count towards your goal). These are non-compulsory.
+ A femslash ship must be the main focus
+ Any fandom goes
+ OFCs + Crossover pairs a-okay
+ Can be original or fic works

Basically it's just a year-long celebration of femslash! Which is more delightful than anything else in the world, imo. ;)

multi_genfic has a poll up for January - slash - the future of the community because I am eager as hell to get the ball rolling again. This comm was 10/10 my favorite thing about 2016 and hope that my personal hiatus didn't drive any of you away!

buffy_genfic also has a poll up because quite frankly, it wasn't a positive experience for me running that comm and I'd like to pass the puck to someone else. If you liked the community and don't want it to die - or more specifically, think that I was the wrong mod for it (which is the impression that I get) and want to see it in someone else's hands (or your own) - PLEASE go vote in the poll because otherwise it's going to die.


Happy January everyone. Let's make 2016 a good one.


((a personal aside: I know I've missed a lot the past couple of months and I *desperately* want to have the energy to go back and catch up on everything I've missed, but the idea of doing that fills me up with like HUGE amounts of anxiety. so let's just start over. here we are: it's 2016 and I'm back and ilu and I'm sorry about the disappearing act))
