Commentary, hooray! Part I.

Does just about exactly what it says on the tin! Because yeah, the fic combined with my (scintillating, of course) comments was TOO LONG FOR ONE POST. Anyhow! This is fic commentary for The Wrath of The Whatever From High Atop The Thing, as requested by jibrailis. ♥

Phew! That's a lot of commentary, people. I'm leaving this post public because it's sort of fic, I guess? And since my fic is usually public, it seemed to make sense for this to be. You can still ask me to do commentary for something, right over here!

Fic: Worth The Postage

Title: Worth The Postage
Rating: PG-13 (but only for language!)
Characters/Pairings: Arthur/Eames, and a smidgen of Yusuf. Also, I feel I should confess that this could essentially be gen. Seriously, I'm not even posting it to any shipping communities. It's a pairing if you read it that way!
Spoilers/Warnings: Nah.
Summary: Eames gives in to a sudden whim and begins to communicate only via pen and paper. Arthur is annoyed, although maybe not for the reasons he'd like to be.
Disclaimer: Inception is certainly not mine, nor, for that matter, are SpaghettiOs.
Notes: This is myricarubra's holiday fic! Because yeah, I'm still writing holiday fic. So what if it's April? Anyhow! She gave me a fabulous AU prompt that I was totally incapable of writing, but which featured the detail of letters, and this is what happened. Ta-da? The title is from a quote which the internet reliably (reliably?) tells me is courtesy of Henry David Thoureau's Walden. The full quote is, "I have received no more than one or two letters in my life that were worth the postage," and it is only tangentially related to this story but the snark of it amuses me.

Fic: And I Feel Fine

More holiday fic! This time for papered. Happy Holidays! ♥

Title: And I Feel Fine
Rating: PG-13
Characters/Pairings: Arthur/Eames, Ariadne, Dom.
Spoilers/Warnings: No and no.
Summary: So as it turns out, Arthur is in love. This is not a particularly welcome revelation, besides which he isn't quite sure what to do with it.
Disclaimer: Inception is absolutely not mine, nor is anything you recognize from it.
Notes: This is papered's holiday gift! Inspired by this lovely e-card from someecards.com, that most wonderful of websites. Title shamelessly yanked from The Beatles ("I Feel Fine").

EDIT: Now with fabulous and adorable art here, by distracterisey and a commentary track here!

Fic: A Puppy With A Closet Full of Dunhill

The Glee!AU! I have finished it! This is it, the whole thing. It starts with the part I've already posted, which I know is inconvenient-- sorry about that. :/ Only that part really turned out to be sort of a snippet, more than a "Part I," and I wanted to put the whole thing together. I apologize if I strained anyone's patience!

Title: A Puppy With A Closet Full of Dunhill
Rating: PG-13
Characters/Pairings: Arthur/Eames, Ariadne, Dom, Mal, and (eventually) Yusuf and Saito, plus a few blink and you'll miss 'em Glee cameos.
Spoilers/Warnings: No and no.
Summary: It turned out that Glee Club wasn’t so much a club as it was three people who were surgically attached to their iPods and wanted Barbra Streisand’s diva notes to make sweet, sweet love to their ears. Which was fine, because that was pretty much exactly who Ariadne was, too. Glee!AU.
Disclaimer: Inception is absolutely not mine, nor is anything you recognize from it. The same applies to Glee, and to all of the songs and Broadway shows mentioned and quoted in this story.
Notes: This is sharaith's holiday gift! Though it also classifies as a High School!AU, I suppose, so those of you who asked for one of those-- consider this a super special bonus gift? Or something? And you guys, I have to say: they are not all going to be this long! Or, if they are, I will probably die.

Harry Potter fic!

Excuse me while I spam you like a spam-y thing which spams.

(Actually this is...only two posts in one day, so. I don't think it qualifies as spam-y spam! But whatever, I'M GOING TO APOLOGIZE ANYWAY, you just try and stop me.)

Anywho, here is some more fic that I wrote for the Shiny, Happy Comment Ficathon. Harry Potter this time around, since I thought it was a good time for it! YAY, MOVIE. BOO, I HAVEN'T SEEN IT YET, OH GOD WHAT WILL I DO.

Title: The Old Fablemakers
Rating: PG
Characters/Pairings: Remus/Sirius
Spoilers/Warnings: No and no.
Summary: The cottage, Sirius is overwhelmingly, gapingly happy to discover, is wonderful. It is full of windows, and soft yellows, and the smell of old books.
Disclaimer: Harry Potter is absolutely not mine, nor is anything you recognize from it.
Notes: Title is from a poem by Eavan Boland.

Collapse )


Title: all is loneliness before me
Rating: PG
Characters/Pairings: Tom Riddle/Bellatrix Lestrange
Spoilers/Warnings: No and no.
Summary: For the prompt, "Harry Potter, Tom Riddle/Bellatrix Lestrange, hundreds of dreams taking place around you."
Disclaimer: Harry Potter is absolutely not mine, nor is anything you recognize from it.
Notes: Title is from a Janis Joplin song. Also, as was noted at the time, "shiny," "happy," and "Voldemort" are not always words which you see together. But, you know.

Fic + Anne Hathaway!

So, this movie?



I can't really tell if it's going to be any good, but I can already tell I'm going to see it. Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal, cinematically reunited! This pleases me.

And now, some more fic I wrote for The Shiny, Happy Comment Ficathon. Shiny! Happy! Hooray!

Title: Less Than Clandestine
Rating: PG?
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock/John
Spoilers/Warnings: Nope!
Summary: For the prompt, "Sherlock uses everyone's tendency to assume he and John are a couple to his advantage. For purely case-related reasons, of course."
Disclaimer: Sherlock (BBC)-- or indeed, Sherlock Holmes in any and all of his many incarnations-- is absolutely not mine, nor is anything you recognize from it.

Oh Snape, let them have their flapdoodle.

So, I wrote five things for the Shiny Happy Comment Ficathon (which has, as one might well expect, been a bundle of shiny happy joy). And I don't feel like they are short enough to be in one post together (besides which they are kind of wildly unrelated) but I also do not really want to post them all at once for fear of annoying...someone. Lord knows who, I certainly have no idea, but there you have it.

THESE ARE MY DILEMMAS, OH GOSH MY LIFE IS SO HARD. ANGST ANGST ANGST.

So anyway, what I'm going to do is this: here are the two West Wing fics I wrote, and I will post the rest of what I wrote...at some other point in time! THAT IS MY ULTRA-COMPLICATED AND SPECIFIC PLAN.

Title: A Distinct Lack of Gravitas
Rating: G
Characters/Pairings: Sam, Josh, Toby, and CJ's intimidating, one-line presence!
Spoilers/Warnings: Nope!
Summary: Sam, Josh, and Toby, on a plane, being nerdy.
Disclaimer: The West Wing is absolutely not mine, nor is anything you recognize from it.

Collapse )

Title: And Most Fools Do
Rating: G
Characters/Pairings: Josh, Donna, and He Who Ought Not Be On Television.
Spoilers/Warnings: Nope!
Summary: Josh watches Glenn Beck. Donna suffers the consequences.
Disclaimer: The West Wing is absolutely not mine, nor is anything you recognize from it. Nor, for that matter, is Glenn Beck.
Notes: Title is from a Benjamin Franklin quote.

Oh Aaron Sorkin. You and your show have ruined me for actual, real life politics, and I don't even particularly mind.

P.S.: Wizard Swears.

This post contains fic!

Hello, f-list! In an effort to a) keep all of my writing sort of organized, or at least to tell myself that it is organized, and b) put off doing my homework, I have put together this post. It is a collection of the little bits and bobs I've written for the fluff meme (part two!) and for my Halloween treats post. Think of it as, I don't know. The week-after-Halloween candy clearance sale? OR SOMETHING. Something both delicious and discounted, essentially. And no, this metaphor doesn't work.

(Standard disclaimer applies-- that is to say, nothing you recognize belongs to me, for goodness sake OF COURSE IT DOESN'T. That includes the book titles in the third drabble in this post.)

Besides which, things are still in-progress! Lots of things, as it happens! The Harry Potter!AU, for one, as well as a Glee!AU (for one of the holiday fic requests, hooray) and a Harry Potter fic (more things which are not Inception-related, good Lord this is shocking!) about the Marauders between graduation and, you know, that time where one of them died, one of them got sent to Azkaban, and one of them spent twelve years as a rat.

Fic: Under One Roof.

Title: Under One Roof
Rating: PG-13 (for language!)
Characters/Pairings: The Marauders + Lily
Spoilers/Warnings: Nope!
Summary: James shoves his wand back into his right sleeve and blinks dazedly. Combined with the glasses, it has the effect of making him look like an owl. A bemused, deranged owl whose perch has just been rocked by A Storm of Sirius Proportions. Sirius has Important Information to impart to James. Also, everyone eats dinner.
Disclaimer: Harry Potter is absolutely not mine, nor is anything you recognize from it.
Notes: For ascenseur, possibly because she prompted the Marauders being BFFs for her holiday present or possibly just because she deserves many, many hugs and writing is one way I know of to deliver hugs via the internet. I know this is pretty much useless, but still! ♥

Possibly probably definitely inspired by this.

Fic: The Wrath of The Whatever From High Atop The Thing.

Title: The Wrath of The Whatever From High Atop The Thing
Rating: PG-13
Characters/Pairings: Arthur/Eames
Spoilers/Warnings: Mentions of character death consistent with the plot of the film. Other than that, no!
Summary: “Pictures of Dom tonight, Eames,” Yusuf replies from the doorway, “or I swear to you, I will point out to Arthur that he has a stalker with no shame and a thousand dollar camera.” From celebutaunt's prompt at the kink meme, "Cobb is the presidential candidate, Ariadne is his running mate, Yusuf is campaign manager, Saito is the sponsor, and Eames is the campaign photographer who spends way too much time taking picture of Cobb's speechwriter, Arthur."
Disclaimer: Inception is absolutely not mine, nor is anything you recognize from it. Nor, obviously, is the title to this story.
Notes: The title is a quote from The West Wing and is, as mentioned, not mine. Now with bonus commentary track, here!
