Because my tags are getting unwieldly and I love to organize things! Fic is complete unless marked otherwise.

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.

November was all NANO NANO NANO, and now we've flopped into December and I've swapped to YULETIDE YULETIDE YULETIDE. :D :D :D

I'm THISCLOSE to completing my totally amazing assignment, woooooo, which will hopefully make me feel less guilty about somehow already having TWO GIFTS??? One Madness, one main collection, and tentative present-shaking indicates I am YET AGAIN going to have an amazing Yuletide.

I CAN ONLY HOPE MY RECIP WILL FEEL THE SAME WAY /o\

But as my brain's being eaten by bears, I haven't had much left for actual canon consumption lately. I've been hugely enjoying Lucifer and Elementary; tentatively still watching Blindspot, though it's starting to feel a little bit like the wheels are coming off; and mostly just mocking Timeless, which is trying a lot of things but IMO isn't really succeeding at them. (I wouldn't really care how bad the episode plots were if I loved the characters, but that show is seriously not managing to convince me that its main characters are a team or even friends. I WANT TO BELIEVE. THIS IS NOT A HARD SELL. And yet.)

However! I did end up going to see Moana, twice, and LOVED IT. (Spoilers, ofc.) )
damkianna: A cap of Korra from The Legend of Korra. (Look at this place.)
I feel like I looked away, and then looked back, and ... September's almost over? I haven't posted in months?! THE YULETIDE LETTERS POST IS UP?!? How does this keep happening? *shakes fist*

A (relatively) brief survey of things I've enjoyed since FEBRUARY, wtf:

Batman v Superman. I don't know either. )

Ghostbusters! :D )

Star Trek: Beyond! )

WYNONNA EARP. )

S2 of Dark Matter! (Spoilers.) )

Other than that, still watching Major Crimes and still so happy with it that I have nothing to say about it. Slowly working my way through Miss Fisher and enjoying it so far. Lucifer's just started up again—I watched S1 and enjoyed it a lot, but I felt the same way about Sleepy Hollow, so we'll just see how S2 goes. And ... that's all that springs to mind, though I'm sure I'm forgetting something.

As for real life? ... I can't believe there's anyone left who's undecided about the presidential election, and that's about all I want to say about that. There are times when I love living in a safe blue state, and there are times when it makes me feel incredibly helpless.
damkianna: A cap of Korra and Asami from The Legend of Korra, about to race. (Let's do it.)
I'm taking the liberty of interpreting the prompt for Day 2: Senses REALLY loosely; basically this is just an excuse to picspam the (major) women of Sinbad (TV), but enjoy the halfhearted logic I use to justify it! :D

four different kinds of sense )
damkianna: A cap of Asami from The Legend of Korra. (All you need to do is show up.)
I always see [community profile] halfamoon happening but am basically never organized enough to do anything for it—it just moves too quickly! I'm too lazy! &c. &c.

SO. This year I'm going to try a new thing where I kind of take the prompt themes and maybe try to post about them sort of in or around February sometime, without regard for the actual halfamoon schedule. Also maybe about different women/fandoms each time, and also probably not fic because that would take me for-e-ver.

Which means I'm starting late with Day 1: Women Being Awesome. And in response to that prompt, what sprang to mind was a mini-picspam/iconspam about the (major) women of Quantico—who are not only awesome, as I privately maintain basically all characters are if you let them be, but whose canon actually seems to know they are awesome, which is way way rarer (especially for women).

LOOK AT ALL THIS AWESOME. (Spoilers for Quantico S1, obvs., though as few as possible.) )

So! That's it for Day 1. God only knows whether I'll ever get around to Day 2 ...
damkianna: A cap of Padme Amidala from Star Wars, with accompanying text: "Queen". (Queen.)
All my regular TV shows are basically pleasing me and so I've got basically nothing to say about them. [personal profile] idriya and I are working our way through Fringe, via Netflix, and also through Blindspot, but so far I don't have much to say about those either except OLIVIA and ASTRID and SIF, yay. So instead I guess I'll talk about a) movies and b) shows that are dead or else I have problems with them. Whee! These are in order from "least to say" to "most to say", and are cut for spoilers.

Man from UNCLE (the movie). )

Quantico (TV). )

Strange Empire (TV). )

And, of course, STAR WARS: TFA. )

Man, I should chop that up and post it to tumblr as meta. It would be more content than I've managed to generate over there in years. :D

Also, there was this AO3 meme that was going around ... oh, before Christmas sometime, I'm sure—anyway, I copied it into the document where I draft posts, and now that Yuletide reveals are well behind us, I've finally filled it out!

These stats include anonymous works and do not include vids. )
damkianna: A cap of the Reverend Mother from the Dune miniseries, with accompanying text: "Space cowgirl." (Default)
Our Christmas was Star Wars and our New Year was Man from UNCLE, so I have had a lovely shiny fast-moving holiday season! :D

As it turns out, I received the lovely Serendipity (25k Irulan/Chani AU! BE STILL MY HEART) from [archiveofourown.org profile] Tamoline! I have no idea what I did to deserve such a tremendous gift, but it's everything I could possibly have hoped for and then some. ♥ And! My ecstatically wonderful Hellboy OT3 gift, some bright equation, was the work of none other than [archiveofourown.org profile] Liviapenn, which I was not expecting AT ALL. (I regret absolutely none of my comment's effusiveness, but I do feel a little silly. Like, of course it was great, it was Liviapenn.)

And! I wrote:

The Sword in the Stone (14148 words) by Damkianna
Fandom: Crusade
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Dureena Nafeel, Matthew Gideon, Galen (Crusade), Sarah Chambers, John Matheson, Max Eilerson, Original Characters
Additional Tags: Alien Technology, Psychic Violence, Post-Canon, End of the World
Summary: Lieutenant Matheson had a headache. Post-canon: the crew of the Excalibur discovers a magic sword, Galen is cryptic, and Dureena has a lot of feelings.

I offered Crusade COMPLETELY on a whim, having had something of a B5 renaissance this year, and lucked out by matching to [archiveofourown.org profile] ArisTGD, who had an inspiring but also extremely flexible prompt about Dureena, Galen, and a sword. :D The more I thought about this one, the more I wanted to make kind of an episode out of it; and I did my best to pack it full of JMS-y themes (religion! ends and beginnings! weighing costs and making choices!). It was a delight to write and a great excuse to rewatch the show (again), and basically I'm just very lucky with my assignments. \o/ MAN YULETIDE IS AWESOME.

And then! I also wrote four treats, in The Bone Key - Sarah Monette, Donovan's Reef (1963), Roundtable Rival - Lindsey Stirling (music video), Veritas: The Quest. )

This Yuletide was so fantastic—and there are so many stories I still haven't read, augh!

YULETIDE!

WHAT AN ECSTATICALLY WONDERFUL YEAR. I'll be going through the archive properly this afternoon and tomorrow, with Christmas and family and STAR WARS having taken up basically all my time off so far, but I have absolutely made time to read my gifts! MY GIFTS.

Serendipity (25771 words)
Fandom: Dune - All Media Types
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Graphic Depictions Of Violence
Relationships: Chani/Irulan Corrino
Characters: Irulan Corrino, Chani, Lady Jessica, Leto Atreides I
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, A certain amount of politicking, A certain amount of stabbing, Paul Atreides and the planet Dune will hardly be appearing in this fic
Summary: Duke Leto survives his arrival on Arrakis, allies with the Fremen and forces a compromise with the Padishah Emperor. Five years later, Irulan - still unmarried - is summoned from her near exile on Dune as Imperial Observer to testify before the High Council of the Landsraad. Naturally, not all is as it seems. But the actions of the right woman in the right place at the right time can make all the difference.

This is an absolutely EPIC Irulan/Chani AU with completely accurate tags. The central premise is actually kind of fantastically tropey, Chani as Irulan's grudging bodyguard and then they slowly get to know each other and it's not so grudging and also bodyguard if-you-know-what-I-mean; but it is executed with such care and such Dunelike awareness of all the ripples and complexities and consequences. Just lovely!

some bright equation (14810 words)
Chapters: 3/3
Fandom: Hellboy (Movies)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Hellboy/Liz Sherman, Hellboy & John Myers & Liz Sherman, Hellboy/John Myers/Liz Sherman
Characters: Hellboy, Liz Sherman, John Myers
Additional Tags: Post-Movie(s), Angst, Pining, Elves, OT3
Summary: After almost a year of dating Hellboy, Liz didn't think anything could surprise her any more. She was wrong.

This fic! This fic is absolutely everything I could never have hoped to receive based on the completely useless "or give me HB/John/Liz, if you want!" prompt I chucked into my letter. I love the Liz voice, I love the understated triangle of pining and caring and TEAM, I love the resolution. I JUST LOVE THIS WHOLE THING.

YAY YULETIDE.
damkianna: A cap of Ikki from The Legend of Korra. (Dance like the wind!)
... is like the only fannish thing I've been successful in keeping up with! I'm behind on The Librarians (!), Major Crimes, Elementary, basically all the things. (Agents of Shield, [personal profile] idriya and I dropped way back at the beginning of S2 without even watching it up to the point of the death we were spoiled for that made us decide to drop it. Though I do still read commentary at times.) I'm kind of trying to work my way up to watching Jessica Jones; I may end up using Sense8 as a unicorn chaser, since I haven't watched that either.

BUT. YULETIDE. I've finished my assignment and am WAY happier with it than I was expecting to be, which is always a nice surprise—I wasn't sure I could really pull off what I was trying for, but I think (*crosses fingers*) I have. AND THEN a gift was posted for me! AND IF IT'S THE FIC I THINK IT IS (and it probably is) then I have NO WORDS TO EXPRESS HOW ECSTATIC I AM. :DDDDDDDDDDDDDD Honestly I will be thrilled to read the fics so far in any of the fandoms I requested! BUT SERIOUSLY I AM SO EXCITE. OMG.

*off to write more treats to celebrate*

ETA 12/22: And now a second gift, which obviously got posted sometime in the last week! I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHICH IS MY MAIN NOW. OMG I LOVE THEM BOTH ALREADY.
damkianna: Fanart of Katara in the Avatar state. (Only Waterbender in the South Pole.)
*FISTPUMP*

( Follow the fake cut to Chapter 1 of Book Three! )

WELL THAT TOOK A WHILE. Posted on Saturday evening, and throwing a link on DW totally slipped my mind! But then I figured I should post one anyway, just in case anybody waits for updates here instead of via AO3 subscription. And the "1/13" is totally optimism, probably this is going to expand into a 14th chapter just like Book Two. OH WELL.
damkianna: A cap of the Reverend Mother from the Dune miniseries, with accompanying text: "Space cowgirl." (Default)
WHAT A PERFECT TIME FOR THIS TO BE GOING AROUND.

That catch-up meme thingy, me edition. )
damkianna: A cap of Lin from The Legend of Korra, on the arena roof. (That lady is my hero.)
My media experiences are piling up again, and if I don't post about them, I'd never post about anything! SO.

I realized that despite having had a long post-mortem with [personal profile] idriya IRL, I never actually said anything about the end of Sleepy Hollow's second season. Spoilers and ambivalence below the cut, if anyone still cares. )

All caught up on Forever, and now that it's probably canceled, why not post about it? )

I'm much less at peace with the probable cancellation of Battle Creek. )

I think that's just about everything we're watching on TV right now (except The Flash, but I never have much to say about The Flash. Or Elementary, but for the opposite reason). Which means I can move on to the reason I was actually prompted to make this post: we went to see Mad Max yesterday evening. Spoilers, obvs. )

And now I should actually do some work! (Oh, and I suppose I should say: outlines for Book Three of ItO now perhaps three-quarters wrangled, and I'm about 5k into Chapter 1. God knows how long it'll be, but I'm working on it.)
damkianna: A cap of Korra and Asami from The Legend of Korra, about to race. (Let's do it.)
Drive-by fest reveals post!

My gift was the delightful:

Hallucinate In High Fidelity (4160 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] geckoholic
Fandom: Constantine (TV)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Graphic Depictions Of Violence
Characters: Mary "Zed" Martin, John Constantine, Chas Chandler
Additional Tags: casefic
Summary: A call from one of John's old friends leads the gang to London. There's something askew in the city's haunted old train stations.

... which is a charming Zed-focused casefic with bonus Hellblazer tie-in. Very much like an episode, minus all the things the TV show sometimes does wrong—aka EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED. Just enough John and Chas for my taste, and so much of Zed being Zed, holding back and reaching out at the same time, knowing too much and yet not enough until the pieces of the case finally come together. Lovely, in other words, and I'm so grateful!

And I wrote two stories this year, both for XENA, of all the brilliant wonderful fandoms to match on. !!! )

I've left a scattering of kudos but haven't actually finished going through the collection yet—smaller than last year, and yet still nearly a hundred fics!
damkianna: A cap of the Reverend Mother from the Dune miniseries, with accompanying text: "Space cowgirl." (Default)
Two weeks late: I AM SO DELIGHTED by my [community profile] rarelywritten assignment! YES. Just like last time, it wasn't necessarily the fandom I was expecting to match on, but OMG YAY YES THIS IS GREAT. I have a complete draft of one story that fulfills my assignment and I'm really really hoping to write at least one more; we'll see how it goes. SO EXCITE.

Ahem.

Aside from that, my sister and I have been watching Battle Creek. Cut for spoilers. ) I'm not 1000% in love, but I'm more than willing to give this show a season to convince me.

I also watched the new Cinderella. )

And! Jupiter Ascending, which was EVERYTHING THE INTERNET TOLD ME IT WOULD BE. Take that as you will. :D

The weather here has been veering back and forth between abruptly balmy and degrees in the teens Fahrenheit—but it is above freezing as of this moment and is supposed to remain above freezing for the next two days! It really IS spring.

(And now I should get back to work.)
damkianna: A cap of Korra from The Legend of Korra, Firebending. (And a Firebender.)
Three posts in one month? WHO AM I

I was thinking through the list of things I've seen recently and might want to talk about and not coming up with much (Sleepy Hollow: still watching, though not quite as fiercely in love; Major Crimes: still watching, as fiercely in love as ever; The Flash ... is a thing that's happened while I've been looking at it, as is the vague charm of Forever) and then suddenly remembered THE LIBRARIANS. I HAVEN'T POSTED ANYTHING ABOUT THE LIBRARIANS. !!!

Not necessarily a genuinely good show so much as it is EVERYTHING I WANT IN MY MEDIA EVER. (Except in the sense that it's awfully white.) Spoilers. ) Like, take all this with many grains of salt, my taste in media is really forgiving, but I SERIOUSLY LOVE THIS SHOW.

Anyway. Also, meme! Seen this in places, and couldn't resist:

When you see this, share 3 lines from 3 random WIPs. Doing as some other folks have done and interpreting 3 lines REALLY loosely ... WIPs in Camelot, Sinbad, Rizzoli & Isles. )
damkianna: A cap of Korra from The Legend of Korra, through lines of fire. (Bending is the coolest.)
Catching up on everything I've seen since before Yuletide:

Tom Cruise, Sci-Fi Action Hero. Aka I ended up watching Oblivion and Edge of Tomorrow back-to-back. )

And continuing the sci-fi, I also watched Guardians of the Galaxy. )

Not caught up on Sleepy Hollow; nothing to say about Major Crimes except oh, the Christmas episodes of Closerverse shows are SO RIDICULOUS AND DARLING. ♥ And the canon review I did for Yuletide has set off some kind of incredible Babylon 5 renaissance in my soul, just in time for [livejournal.com profile] babylon5_love's 2015 mini-rewatch! (The mini-rewatch episode list is here, for any interested parties.) I actually just finished marathoning Crusade (oh, god, the sfx and HI DANIEL DAE KIM), but luckily they're going chronologically, so I'll have a chance to work my way back around before watching Well of Forever again.
damkianna: A cap of Korra from The Legend of Korra, sweeping Bolin off his feet. (What did I think?!)
Happy 2015, to everybody celebrating a new year today! I don't know that I even can characterize my 2014 meaningfully, but it held multiple milestones for me personally, good and bad, and I hope I never forget to acknowledge and remember and recognize them—I hope I learned enough from them to make 2015 awesome.

My year in review in fannish terms mostly consists of KATARA KORRA KATARA KORRA KATARA KORRA YULETIDE. \o? Finishing LttE (AT LAST) was a tremendous feeling; the ending of Korra was everything I could reasonably have hoped for. And of course Yuletide reveals were last night!

I wrote four stories this year, in all. My assignment was not in any way what I was expecting to write:

one giant leap (3862 words) by Damkianna
Fandom: The Dig (Video Game)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Maggie Robbins/Boston Low
Characters: Maggie Robbins, Ludger Brink, Boston Low
Additional Tags: Post-Canon
Summary: Two of the Cocytans come with them back to Earth. Post-game tag: after the adventure, they still have to get home. (Gen, with hints of Maggie/Boston.)

I didn't actually offer The Dig this year, but [archiveofourown.org profile] Three_Headed_Monkey asked for it; it was listed ahead of the fandom we actually matched on in my assignment email, and I saw it and HAD TO. There was zero Dig fic on the AO3 until I posted this (and as of this writing, there's two and Three_Headed_Monkey wrote the other), which makes it a Yuletide fandom if ever there was one. It was hilarious and strange and fascinating to watch an LP of The Dig after all this time (it came out in like 1995, that's TWENTY YEARS AGO)—the request was very open-ended but an idea came to me pretty quickly, and the actual writing went very well, so this was a real delight of an assignment overall. \o/ YAY YULETIDE.

And three treats under the cut, in Babylon 5: Legend of the Rangers, Constantine (2005), and H2O: Just Add Water. )

And! [archiveofourown.org profile] damask_and_dark was the author of the transcendent and beautiful the moon a black hole in the blaze of night, which was my absolutely incredible main gift and everything I could not have known to hope for when I prompted for armored Snow White at the head of an army, breaking Ravenna out of her box. Gloriously in-character and yet so very kind to both Ravenna and Snow White, with the happy ending the movie couldn't have given Ravenna. ♥

As if that weren't enough to make my Yuletide all by itself, I also received the delightful post-B13:U Blood on the Dance Floor from [archiveofourown.org profile] gamerfic, who took my admittedly off-the-wall request for Lola/Tao (they don't even meet in canon!) and went MARVELOUS places with it! HOW AM I SO LUCKY. \o/
damkianna: A cap of the Reverend Mother from the Dune miniseries, with accompanying text: "Space cowgirl." (Default)
I have not in any way had a meaningful amount of time free to go through the archive, which means this weekend is going to be SO WORDS MUCH STORY VERY YULETIDE. But! I have had time to read (and then gleefully reread) both of my gifts:

the moon a black hole in the blaze of night (4142 words)
Fandom: Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Ravenna/Snow White (Snow White and the Huntsman)
Characters: Ravenna (Snow White and the Huntsman), Snow White (Snow White and the Huntsman)
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Misses Clause Challenge
Summary: There is no king, this time. When Ravenna tries to capture Snow White's kingdom, she is rescued by an armoured queen.

My main gift, and a GLORIOUS story that took my "Snow White is the one leading the army and breaking Ravenna out of her box" prompt and worked BEAUTIFUL MAGIC with it. It somehow manages to be simultaneously really in-character for Ravenna but also give her basically the happiest possible ending, and I love it.

AND:

Blood on the Dance Floor (2066 words)
Fandom: Banlieue 13 (Movies)
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Tao/Lola, background Leïto/Damien Tomaso
Characters: Tao (Banlieue 13), Lola (Banlieue 13)
Additional Tags: Post-Canon, First Meetings, Foreplay, Misses Clause Challenge, Yuletide Treat
Summary: Two fighters lay down their arms long enough to share a dance.

The Lola/Tao treat I have ALWAYS WANTED but NEVER EVER EXPECTED to actually get, because asking for ladyslash where the women in question were never actually in the same movie can be something of a fool's errand. BUT SOMEHOW IT WORKED THIS YEAR. \o/ Lovely, a nice match to the tone of the movies, and with an ending full of potential.

And now: so many more fics to read! *rolls up sleeves*
