Hopefully this is also the place to note that I don't really feel you need to ask me before podficcing, remixing, critiqueing, translating, or making art based on my stuff (although I'd love it if you'd share a link to the end result!). Consider this blanket permission. I will do my best to use warnings appropriately, but do absolutely let me know if I have failed to warn when I should have, and feel free to ask me if you aren't sure whether something of mine is safely viewable for you; my DW forwarding email address is on my profile.

Dear Rarewomen author ... )

Again, thank you so much for signing up for Rarewomen, and I'm sorry this letter got so unbelievably long. I hope you have fun writing a story, and I can't wait to read it!
damkianna: Fanart of Katara in the Avatar state. (Only Waterbender in the South Pole.)
So I didn't quite manage to get this posted in January the way I was hoping, but given that last time I was a year late, two days really isn't that bad. :D

So! It's been a while since I've done a catch-up post on TV; I don't have much to say about Sleepy Hollow (still enjoying it) or SHIELD (still enjoying it) or Major Crimes (definitely still enjoying it!); but [personal profile] idriya and I have also been watching Almost Human, and I think we're far enough into it now for me to be able to say, with relative certainty, I have no idea why I'm still watching this show. Cut for spoilers, 1.01-1.06, and also for lack of squee. ) For what it's worth, there are moments I've enjoyed very much, and I get what people who aren't me like about it! But it's just not doing it for me.

Surely someone out there has written some incredible ten-thousand-word meta about humanity, personhood, and why American media's perception and understanding of both mean that Dorian was always, always going to have a working dick. I just have to find it.
damkianna: A cap of Korra from The Legend of Korra. (Look at this place.)
Late to the party, because I'm pretty much late to every party, but! I wrote fewer fics this year than last year, and yet more total words, because:

The Silver Bracelet (40425 words) by Damkianna
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Sinbad (TV)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Gunnar/Sinbad
Characters: Gunnar (Sinbad), Sinbad (Sinbad), Cook (Sinbad), Nala (Sinbad), Rina (Sinbad), Anwar (Sinbad), Tiger (Sinbad)
Additional Tags: Reunions, Treasure Hunting, Unreliable Narrator, Misunderstandings, Gods, Ghosts, Curses, Original Female Character(s) - Freeform
Summary: It was strange, to be back in Basra. Post-canon: the crew of the Providence goes on a new adventure.

My assignment fic for [personal profile] movies_michelle, after very-much-needed edits, cracked 40k words! She asked for Gunnar/Sinbad and found family, and suggested the possibility of a reunion with Nala, and I grabbed all three of those things and SPRINTED INTO THE WILDS with them for forty thousand completely ridiculous words. [personal profile] movies_michelle was very gracious about her surprise novel, and even left me a comment when she was only partway through, just so I'd know she didn't hate it. ♥ She and I both only just watched Sinbad this year, and I'm really glad I offered it, because this story was great fun to write!

I also had time for a single treat:

a lonely hunter (1630 words) by Damkianna
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Twisted Princess (Disney Fanart)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Snow White (Twisted Disney Princesses - Jeftoon01)
Additional Tags: Non-Graphic Violence, Body Horror, Unreliable Narrator, Yuletide Treat
Summary: The huntsman is kind to Snow White, in the forest.

Twisted Princesses is rapidly becoming one of my favorite treating fandoms; I'm not confident enough in my ability to write horror on command to actually offer it, but when I get an idea that I think I can pull off, I love to write it. Maybe if I do it enough, I'll actually get good at darkfic someday!

As it turns out, the incredibly generous [archiveofourown.org profile] Niki wrote me BOTH my main gift, Home, and my fabulous Snow White and the Huntsman treat, Mirrored; and [archiveofourown.org profile] russian_blue wrote me One Spark, about Lola on the roof. I am so pleased and amazed that they chose to take the time to write me such wonderful stories! TELL ME WHAT I DID TO DESERVE THIS SO I CAN DO IT AGAIN.
damkianna: A cap of Jinora from The Legend of Korra, giving advice. (Then she jumped into a volcano.)

Home (1465 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 4/4
Fandom: Banlieue 13 (Movies)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Leïto/Damien Tomaso
Characters: Lola (Banlieue 13), Leïto (Banlieue 13), Damien Tomaso
Additional Tags: Post-Movie(s), Addiction, Friendship, Family
Summary: Lola has never been a victim, she has always been a survivor.

My main gift, and I ADORE it - somehow it manages to span the space between the movies, B13:U, and then after B13:U in 1400 words, and it is LOLA and LEÏTO and DAMIEN and HELP I LOVE THEM ALL SO MUCH. Lola and Leïto struggle with Lola's addiction and get a little help from Damien, and then B13:U happens. And the fourth chapter is only three sentences long but it's ONE OF THE BEST THINGS I'VE EVER SEEN. ♥ Anon, whoever you are, this is everything I asked for and you should feel AMAZING.

One Spark (430 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Banlieue 13 (Movies)
Rating: Mature
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Lola (Banlieue 13), Leïto (Banlieue 13)
Summary: Lola on the roof.

One of the two marvelous treats that people chose to write for me even though they didn't have to because Yuletide is just beautiful that way. :D Short but totally perfect, a fantastic achy look at Lola on that roof with a gas can and a match. LOLA. HEARTS IN MY EYES.

Mirrored (753 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Snow White (Snow White and the Huntsman), Ravenna (Snow White and the Huntsman)
Additional Tags: Introspection
Summary: Snow White used to imagine conversions she might have with the Queen.

I love the structure of this one, how the narrative is essentially mirrored and the ways in which Snow White's and Ravenna's thoughts mirror and don't mirror each other; I lovelovelove Snow White's, how a child's hope turns into resentment and then - because Snow White - into curiosity and even the desire to understand, and I love Ravenna's detachedness, strength and self-deception at the same time. UGH SO AWESOME.

damkianna: A cap of Korra from The Legend of Korra, sweeping Bolin off his feet. (What did I think?!)
Drive-by post to say: SO EXCITE. There were some actual bears this year, because my December got eaten by RL, but I made the deadline with time to spare and had the chance to make some edits! And now I have a gift that I'm SUPER LOOKING FORWARD TO (I can't help it, I love to shake presents) and a Madness treat and I'M JUST SO HAPPY. YAY YULETIDE.

omg what if my recip hates their gift oh god more edits augh help

ETA: Now it's two Madness treats! AN EMBARRASSMENT OF RICHES.

Time keeps passing without telling me it's going to.

Revolution, 2.02-2.08. ) I can't quite make myself stop watching, because a) Charlie and Rachel! and b) a part of me seems to find frothing with hatred cathartic. But, seriously, I hate this show. A lot.

Korra, 2.07-2.14. Herds of teal deer. ) So. Yeah. Some mixed feelings overall.

By contrast, I have almost nothing whatsoever to say about Sleepy Hollow because basically I'm just enjoying the ride. (I haven't seen the most recent ep, I don't think.) Are there plot holes? Sure there are! But the more recent episodes have been much less faily than the first couple, and ABBIE. ABBIE AND JENNY. ICHABOD. CAPTAIN IRVING. The end. *hands*

As far as Agents of SHIELD goes, still watching. ) Possibly I'm too generous! But through the rose-colored glasses of my personal interpretation: still happy.

Not quite on track for NaNo, but close, and if you added in what I've written for my Yuletide story, I'd be ahead. :D
damkianna: Fanart of Katara in the Avatar state. (Only Waterbender in the South Pole.)
Presented with no comment except a heartfelt apology to anybody who's been waiting:

( Follow the fake cut to the new chapter @ the AO3! )

Take that, real life.
damkianna: A cap of Jinora from The Legend of Korra. (I will make no such promises.)
In between being CONSUMED by the drama of Yuletide signups (my letter did not scare people away from Banlieue 13! FANNISH FISTPUMP), I have actually been sort of keeping up with TV.

Revolution 2.01 ) Sigh.

Sleepy Hollow 1.03-1.04 )

Agents of SHIELD 1.02-1.03 )

Korra, 2.04-2.06 ) Also I'd like the AU where Asami's company does in fact sell weapons and then she becomes Iron Man Lady. Yesterday. (If she doesn't hire Zhu Li away from Varrick to be her Pepper Potts at some point this season, I will cry.)

I also watched Warm Bodies the other day; I have no incisive commentary except that it took me until the balcony scene to really geddit (OMG THEIR NAMES I see what you did there), and I enjoyed everything except wee spoiler. ) But aside from that, it was weird and ridiculous and sweet and funny, and overall I enjoyed it. If you have to keep making paranormal romances about thin straight white people, movie industry, you could at least make them like this.

Next chapter of LttE: 14k. \o/
damkianna: A cap of Katara and Korra from The Legend of Korra. (She's strong.)
Still not dead! This is somehow easier to talk about because it's now resolved: I got fired late last July, and was unemployed for quite a while before I suddenly got another job this June, and also moved to a new apartment with [personal profile] idriya. Which is great! But also stressful and kind of exhausting; I've been super-busy about half the summer, and the other half I've been aggressively not accomplishing anything, so as to keep my head from exploding.

I'm starting to ease back into the groove of the internet, though, at last, and what better way to do that than rewind all the way back to June and complain about Revolution? ) I'd wash my hands of this show except a) Charlie and b) Rachel, and also the new season can only get worse better more Revolutiony. 2.01 aired yesterday; I'll probably watch it this weekend.

I think there were also some episodes of OUaT. ) Kind of hard to believe it'll be back on Sunday.

I haven't been keeping up at all on Defiance, but I should now that I can marathon it - with some shows, marathoning just works better for me. As for new shows this fall: the first two episodes of Sleepy Hollow ), the pilot of Agents of SHIELD ).

Also new this fall: Korra, 2.01-2.03. ) Overall, I think I had better wait and see.

And: Yuletide already, what. Guess I'd better start reviewing the nominations spreadsheet and furiously drafting a preliminary letter!

And I know it's been a year (!!! THE GUILT), but at long last: the next chapter of Listen to the Earth is at 10k and counting.
damkianna: A cap of Korra and Asami from The Legend of Korra, about to race. (Let's do it.)
I realize that April must actually have happened, but I feel like I blinked at the end of March and now it's summer. D:

The most interesting thing first, so you do not have to scroll through the beast this post is going to become: Rarewomen 2013 recs! A:tLA, A:tLoK, The Avengers, Burn Notice, The Borgias, The Mummy, Push (2009). )

And I wrote i do not ask for any crown (A:tLA, Yangchen backstory) for none other than [personal profile] ambyr, which was the best assignment I could possibly have hoped for; I'm just sorry I couldn't manage more than one fic, because three out of four fandoms were ones I could have written for and all her prompts were beautiful. ♥

Onward to ALL THE TV:

Once Upon a Time, a bunch of eps. )

Revolution, 1.11-1.14 )

The Borgias, 3.01-3.03 )

I am also watching Vikings, but don't have much to add except that I find the pacing really, really odd, which I assume is a function of the History Channel writing it like - well, like a historical overview instead of like a TV show. I understand it, but it's still weird.

Also, Defiance, 1.01-1.02. )
damkianna: A cap of Asami from The Legend of Korra. (All you need to do is show up.)
The more time I have, the less I use it for anything I should be using it for. /o\

A few days ago, I finally sat down and watched Tomorrow, When the War Began (2010). ) So I wish I could rec it for the ladies, but it's hard to when it's oblivious and the premise is so racefail.

Would it be weird to write like four stories for my [livejournal.com profile] rarewomen recip? Because: great exchange assignment, or GREATEST EXCHANGE ASSIGNMENT? I am SO EXCITE.
damkianna: A cap of Korra from The Legend of Korra. (Thank you all for believing in me.)
I guess if you have to have your sleep constantly interrupted, it's best that it be constantly interrupted by kittens. If only I could nap like they do, I would be golden; but I'm a terrible napper, napping makes me grouchy and horrid.

Went to see Les Mis, which I am incapable of critiquing in any honest or objective manner; I don't actually like the story much and never have, and I cried the first time someone died and didn't stop until the end. I was recovering a bit by I don't know if this even counts as spoilers, but hey. ) At least I saw it with all my friends in one go, so I won't have to go to it again. Small blessings.

I think I'm caught up on TV - at least, the TV I don't have to download. (Download TV, I am always behind on, because I already rack up overage charges as it is. Damn you, Verizon.) OUaT is still making me happy, mostly. )

And! Finished a couple of books, at long last.

The Broken Crown (The Sun Sword, Book 1). )

And, suiting a completely different and yet partly the same portion of my tastes, The Stepsister Scheme (Jim Hines's Princess Series, Book 1). ) As I so often have to say, I couldn't list its objective merits, but I really enjoyed it, and I'm glad I have two more to read.

Because I can, I signed up for a [community profile] trope_bingo card! Here's hoping I can use it to finish some stuff I've already started. (Thank god I got a "forced to marry" square, I finally have a reason to finish the Yue/Zuko arranged marriage fic.)
damkianna: A cap of Korra from The Legend of Korra, sweeping Bolin off his feet. (What did I think?!)
I wrote four stories for Yuletide this year, probably because I was so full of nervous energy from signing up that I just couldn't stop with one.

so may the chains fall from your feet (1897 words) by Damkianna
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Dangerous Beauty (1998)
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Veronica Franco/Marco Venier
Characters: Veronica Franco, Marco Venier
Summary: Stepping out of the Inquisition courthouse brought Veronica to tears. Post-movie: Veronica and Marco, and the things that come after.

My assignment fic! For [archiveofourown.org profile] Shadowcat, who wanted, terrifyingly, "a happy scene" - nothing like my usual epics at all! But I did my best and I think it turned out fairly well; it was definitely a bit tough for me, but I got to rewatch the movie and read all about Veronica Franco, and overall it was a lovely first Yuletide assignment.

And three treats under the cut. )

And! I would like to re-advertise my gift, plus the extra Madness snippet I received: [archiveofourown.org profile] Sheeana wrote me both the gorgeous 24k Empress of Sand and Water, in which Chani is the Mahdi, Irulan is sent to Arrakis by her father, and they get married and share Paul and save the universe; and the much shorter but equally lovely Water-Envy, Chani and Irulan by the ocean. I am just overwhelmed with joy, they are fantastic stories and there is even a chance of a sequel! ♥.♥ I CAN'T. THE HAPPIEST BEARS.

And now to bed; I was up until about 3 a.m. washing New Year's dishes and woke much earlier than I would have liked today, so I am totally exhausted in the best way.

Today has been a whirlwind of awesome and I've spent half of it asleep - I haven't had a chance to delve properly into the Yuletide archive, but I have had the chance to read my gift:

Empress of Sand and Water (24166 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Dune Series - Frank Herbert
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Paul Atreides/Chani/Irulan Corrino
Characters: Irulan Corrino, Paul Atreides, Chani
Summary: After the Harkonnen attack on the Atreides, Irulan is sent to Arrakis to represent the emperor's interests. She hears about this mysterious figure, this Fremen messiah, this Mahdi - and she wonders if this might be the turning point of everything. Canon-divergent AU of Dune.

IT IS THE MOST AMAZING FIC IN THE WORLD AND I LOVE IT. For the first Yuletide gift I will ever receive, this is the most tremendous and beautiful and fantastic story in the world; it is exactly what I wanted and someone wrote it for me and it's just. I CAN'T. ♥ If you are at all a Dune fan I urge you to give it a look (a long look, IT IS 24K WORDS), it is Irulan and Chani and Paul and things are the same but different and Chani is the Mahdi and it's PERFECT.
damkianna: A cap of Korra from The Legend of Korra, sweeping Bolin off his feet. (What did I think?!)
... I think my hopeful present-shaking has given me a v. v. basic picture of my Yuletide gift, and OH MY GOD IT LOOKS AMAZING. HAPPY, HAPPY BEARS. THE HAPPIEST BEARS. (Even if I am wrong: THE HAPPIEST BEARS. UGH REVEALS, COME SOONER LATER SOONER PLZ.)
damkianna: A cap of Ikki from The Legend of Korra, hopeful. (Can I have some lychee juice?)
I can't have a real catch-up post until my folks come back from Italy, because I will be pretty un-caught-up until that happens; but there are a couple things that I've already finished and merely failed to post about.

Revolution, 1.08-1.10. ) Odds are I'm going to keep watching this, but not because it's good.

Chicago Fire, 1.01-1.08. )

Beauty and the Beast, 1.01-1.07. )

Three other small things: I have a tumblr now ([tumblr.com profile] damkianna). Not because I'm making any kind of shift or am at all likely to prefer it; because lots of pretty pictures of ladies, and because I might as well have somewhere to dump the results of me screwing around in Photoshop.

In rl news, the sad and sudden death of our remaining cat was followed a day and a half later by the acquisition of two stray sibling kittens who needed a home. Currently unnamed, although siblings + one boy and one girl = Luke and Leia are strong contenders. They are tabbies, about eight weeks old now, and completely adorable. (They hide every time someone enters the bathroom we've set aside for them; but they've begun coming out to play while people are around, and relax relatively quickly when held.)

And: under my RL name, I may have actually managed to sell a short story. \o/ I'm lurching back and forth between REALLY PLEASED and terrified; but I really want the magazine to do well, and I'm glad I could contribute!

I finished my Yuletide assignment, but somehow I am still feeling BEARS. I have no idea how many times I've gone back to edit it, but if I did I probably wouldn't want to post the number. /o\

damkianna: A cap of Lin from The Legend of Korra. (Whatever happens.)

I'm glad it was fast, and I hope it didn't hurt too much; I wish that clot had never happened, but I'm glad that if it had to, it took ten years to do it. You should have lived longer. I'm sorry there was nothing we could do, and I'm glad I got to see you again before you went.
