Master Fanfic Post

A note, before we get things started: anyone is absolutely welcome to make podfic, art, vids, remixes, or other transformative works out of my fic. I do appreciate (advanced) notice, unless you're wanting to surprise me with it. However, please see my (Def)initon-verse fanfic policy here, as that one's a little different-- it's still a WiP, and I'd like to preserve some parts of it for the moment.

Carry That Weight Master Post

Carry That Weight Master Post

Pairing: Primarily Blaine/Kurt; other minor background pairings.

Summary: When Blaine's friend Susan drags him to an American Idol audition, he's not even trying to get past the first round-- much less into the top ten. And after getting through Disco Week, avoiding the media, and dealing with his very absent parents, Blaine's not sure he even wants to win-- although falling in love might make up for a lot of that. And maybe, just maybe, he can win this thing.

Rating: NC-17

Contains: descriptions of violence, homophobia, reality television.

Main Story: In one page on AO3; in six linked parts on LJ: Part One | Part Two | Part Three | Part Four | Part Five | Part Six. Or you can read the Wikipedia article.

Soundtrack (by sugarsnowflakes!): Over here!


Fic: Through the Dark

Title: Through the Dark
Pairings: Tyler Seguin & Jamie Benn; Sidney Crosby & Evgeni Malkin
Summary: Sid opens the door, and his eyes catch the barest glimpse of a kid-- in his early teens, at the oldest-- this kid, all shaved head and big, doe-soft eyes. His knuckles are split and there's a fading bruise high on his left cheekbone, but he meets Sid's eyes squarely, blinking in the sudden light.
"Hi," Sid finds himself saying, almost inanely. "I'm Sidney Crosby. We're here to help."
Rating: Teen/PG-13
Words: 9152
Contains: previous child abuse (physical and emotional but not sexual), forced child labor, starvation, PTSD, minor character death (pre-fic and off-screen), hospitalization, disordered eating, multiple PoV, alternate universe- space, everything ends as well as it can, more explanation in end note
Betas: Holly and Giulia. Thank you for wrangling my tenses and make there be more feels.
Notes: So this mostly started because I got the mental image of a tiny semi-feral Tyler Seguin with a shaved head, and it rapidly became super fucked up and IN SPACE!! This is kind of weird, and definitely not what I intended my first foray into hockey RPF to be. If anyone wants to take a different part of this and run with it, go ahead! (Also, I am aware that not all of the ages are quite what they should be-- chalk it up to planets having different year-lengths.)

Fic: (Def)inition, (Part 20/22)

Media: Fic
Title: (Def)inition (part 20/22; WiP)
Rating: NC-17
Pairings: Kurt/Blaine, platonic Kurt/Quinn, past Quinn/Puck, past Blaine/other, one-sided Sebastian/Blaine, brief Kurt/OMC
Spoilers: Spoilers through all aired episodes, but this is a fairly radical AU.
Contains: For the story as a whole: non-con, consent issues, explicit discussion of suicide, slavery, disordered eating.
Betas: Tina, best beta a girl could ask for.
Word Count:
Summary: Eventually, the bruises fade.
Note: Thank yoooooou all for your patience! I can't promise that the next chapter will come any faster, but I am still working on this. :) As always, I appreciate any comments.

Title: Tortall Knights Fandom Primer
Author: hedgerose, who did most of the writing, but with major aid and abetting and plot and images and quotes from penguinutopia and Su.
Beta: LIZZY. Thank you for not telling us that we were too weird to write this.
Rating: PG
Pairing: Implied Roger/Thom and George/Alanna, otherwise pretty gen.
Spoilers: Through Lioness Rampant
Contains: described assault, hockey, conspiracy
Word Count: 3171
Summary: The riveting tale of Jonathan Conte attempting to re-build the Tortall Knights into a hockey team that actually, you know, wins games. And maybe someday even the Stanley Cup.
Notes: It’s not a lie that I love fandom meta like a LOT. So when we came up with the idea for this fic I said “WE SHOULD WRITE IT AS A FANDOM PRIMER" and lo, it was so. Few of the links are live, because I didn't have that kind of time (although that may change). All of the fancasts here are pretty damn quick-and-dirty; sorry if our vision doesn’t match yours and can we just pretend that Maisie Williams has red hair? This entire thing was written in one night and is essentially the Song of the Lioness but set in the modern world and with hockey.


I’m sorry, too.

(Also please note that this fic contains moving gifs.)

(This is mostly for the beyond_dapper Secret Santa, but also for anyone who reads this and is inclined to get me a present. Also so I can print it out for my mom.)

1. A souffle pan. (Because I always have to borrow one! And souffles are fun to make.)
2. Anything handmade. Socks, scarves, jam, cookies, bread-- I love hand-made things.
3. Socks! I love socks in general, especially silly ones.
4. Yarn and/or knitting needles. (I am a total, total fiber snob, though-- I really have trouble using yarn that is entirely acrylic, and using metal needles is physically painful to me. I WILL BE HAPPY WITH ANYTHING, but natural fibers are preferred. Also spinning fiber, because I do All the Crafts.)
5. Paper quilling supplies! It's a craft I've never tried, and I'd love to.
6. Canning supplies-- lids, jar rings, labels, pectin, etc.-- I imagine jars would be fairly difficult to ship (and as a bonus, if you send me canning supplies, I'll send you a jar or two of whatever I end up putting in them.)
7. General kitchen/cooking supplies. If you happened to have, say, a two-quart AllClad pot lying around that wasn't being used, I might just propose marriage to you.
8. To Court the King-- it's a card game, and I can't find it *anywhere.*
9. Fic! I would love to get fic. In Glee, I mostly ship canon pairings (and I love being able to say that), and I am a huge fan of Blaine angst with a happy/hopeful ending.
10. Mix CDs! I like music, in general-- if you want more specifics, please let me know!

(+1: I'd love a digital camera-- mine died a sad, sad death, and I've been using my phone's camera, but it doesn't work as well as I want it to. I am well aware that it's out of price range for most people and the b_d exhcange. I'd be incredibly happy with a used one, as well.)

(Def)inition: Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions about (Def)inition

Some of these questions have been answered before, on LJ/Tumblr/e-mail, but I'm collecting them here with some other questions I've gathered (you guys have asked some seriously great questions, so thank you so much)!  If you have a question that isn't answered here, feel free to leave a comment here or in my ask.  I may not have an answer for you, especially if the question is about a future event that may or may not happen in the story, but you are always welcome to ask.
Questions and answers behind the cut!Collapse )

As I said before, feel free to ask more questions!  I have the feeling that some of these responses may raise more questions than they answer.

I have caught up on LiveJournal (it only took me to ?skip=270!)

I am attempting to catch up on Tumblr (this may not go so well).

While IN THE MOUNTAINS, I wrote 3000 words on the next chapter of (Def)inition and 1500 words on the Blaine Big Bang (IT IS OVER 60K, WE NEED TO FINISH IT GODDAMNIT.)

Did I miss anything interesting?

May. 15th, 2011

In Colorado for the week! Next part of the fic will be posted tomorrow or Tuesday, hopefully-- it depends on when I have time and internet.

See y'all on Sunday!


We win!!

Dear Judge Vaughn R. Walker,

You are my faaaaaavorite.

Much love,


(I have a copy of the stay ruling, if anyone wants it. It reads like one big YOU LOSE to the proponents of Prop. 8.)

A Question for All Y'all

O Great and Wise Friendslist,

If I were to start a foodblog, what would I title it?

It's been something that I've been thinking about for a while, but I've cooked a lot of delicious things in the last week or two, and I'd like to blather about them to someone (or, well, have a designated blather-space that isn't my LJ, so that people who don't want to read me talking incessantly about food don't have to).

(Today, for example, I made pizza from scratch-- everything except for the parmesan and tomato paste was made by me. Mozzarella, crust, and sauce. It was good, but needed a bit more salt. Also, mozzarella is pretty easy to make! I was pleased, and I still have some left.)

(And last weekend I made a wedding cake. Or three.)

(I think there are too many parentheses in this post.)

Queer Moviethon!

Realizing this is incredibly late notice, I would like to invite all y'all to a movie marathon today! It's up at the Scotts Valley house, starting at around 2, and ending whenever we run out of energy (probably around 10/11-ish). We'll be watching some combination of:

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
History Boys
Imagine Me and You
Velvet Goldmine
Boys Don't Cry
But I'm a Cheerleader

Come! Rejoice! Eat rainbow goldfish! Give me a call (or leave a comment) if you need directions.

Free Giants Ticket!

O Great and Mighty Flist:

I have an extra (free!) ticket to the Giants game tomorrow. They're playing St. Louis, and the game is at 6:00. Ria and I are going already-- I'm planning to drive over to Santa Clara and take the train up tomorrow, so I can provide a ride to someone from Santa Cruz.

First one who wants it gets it!
Dear Friends from the Internet:

I have a bit of extra money, and was thinking about acquiring a netbook of some variety. Thoughts? Suggestions? I love my MacBook to little tiny pieces, but I think I'd like to have something I could be less careful with. I'd mostly be using it for interwebs, music, and some word processing.

(And on the other hand, I'm not sure if I want one because I *want* one, or if I want one because they're cute. Argh.)


Mar. 27th, 2010

Things I have cooked today:

Pickled Rainbow Carrots
Pickled Red Onions
Tomato Basil Marmalade
Cippolini Onion Chutney
Olive Tapenade
Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto

...and a Lemon Tart.

I think I'm Dead from Keller, as everything (except for the Lemon Tart, which was half Keller/half Chez Panisse) was from Ad Hoc At Home. I spent eight hours straight in the kitchen today. And now, it's all gone-- everything in the list was a birthday present for my father, and the lemon tart was dessert for tonight's dinner. I condensed an entire shelf of vegetables into six jars-- it was kinda impressive, especially the marmalade-- it started as four *huge* tomatoes, along with some leeks, onion, and fennel, and condensed into about two cups.

I have a feeling that tomorrow's dinner will be buttered pasta, because I will never be able to use real ingredients again. AND I WILL NEVER USE VINEGAR AGAIN.

No recipes tonight (well, okay, here's the lemon tart, at least the filling-- I got the crust out of the Chez Panisse Cafe Cookbook, which I bought two years ago and had never cooked out of. But it's basically a shortbread crust), because I made only very minor changes (like no jalapenos in the pickled carrots. Eurgh.)

Beef Stew Recipe

This one's for Gwen! Anyone else have a recipe request?

This is heavily modified from the recipe in The Silver Palate, which is an awesome cookbook. The original recipe is pretty much just beef, bacon, beer, and onions. You should be able to cook the whole thing using one (or two) pans: a frying pan, for the bacon/onions, and a dutch oven, for everything else. You'll want to start this early-- it takes about an hour for prep/stovetop cooking, and an hour-hour and a half in the oven. It serves at least four, with leftovers, or more if you're eating something else as well.

Recipe!Collapse )

This weekend, I have cooked: cider bread, soda bread, raspberry syrup, pork crepinettes with dates and vadouvan spices (with broccolini and cous-cous, for my dad), and tonight's beef stew. OM NOM NOM.

Free Art/Fic!

Dear... everyone.

iambickilometer and I are bound and determined not to watch the television tonight, but instead spend it drawing/writing. We are therefore taking PROMPTS-- fandom, not fandom, your cat, your socks, what have you. Leave a comment here, and we'll get back to you with writing/art.
One of my students is sufficiently interested in the IPA that I felt justified linking him here. He was wondering how to make a rhotic schwa for the pronunciation guide on his Shakespeare phrasebook project-- it's the final project for their History of English unit. I have students making everything from books to Facebook pages to t-shirts for it, and I'm looking forward to seeing them all. I love my seventh graders so, so much!!

Also: iambickilometer: I have become utterly addicted to this song (and, like, all of the Ben Lee). SO MANY HEARTS, DUDE.


Two e-mails from one student tonight:

Ms. -----,

Hwaet! (I'm not really going to tell you a story but whatever.) When is the Test on units 1-9?

From, ------.

The second e-mail was an attempt to translate Never Gonna Give You Up into LATIN. I'm considering posting it to linguaphiles for help, because it's close, but clearly a bit too dictionary-friendly.

...these kids are *awesome.*

Mint Chip Ice Cream and Risotto

Lunch Today: Risotto, an orange, and ice cream

Well, okay, incredibly late lunch/breakfast-- I didn't get out of bed until 12:15. I do so love midwinter break.


1 small leek
1 small yellow onion
2 cloves garlic
2-3 tbs. sherry
1 c. arborio rice
2 c. chicken broth
1/4-1/2 c. parmesan cheese
olive oil, salt, pepper

Cut the leek into circles (white and pale green parts only), dice the onion, and mince the garlic. Cook in a medium-sized pan on medium heat with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper, until the onion is slightly translucent. Add the rice; stir until there is a small white dot in the center of each grain. Add sherry; stir until it has been absorbed into the rice. Then add the chicken broth a little (1/2 c.) at a time, waiting until the liquid has been absorbed, until the rice is the proper consistency. Turn off the fire and fold in the parmesan cheese. (Recipe from memory; this is mostly how my dad cooks risotto, with a few additions from Miriam.) We ate this with the chicken that Esteban bought a few days ago (which was mostly for broth-- it's on the stove now!), and I had an orange.

Mint Chip Ice Cream

I'm not going to post the recipe (it's from Ad Hoc), but I like this much better than I liked the vanilla ice cream (although the vanilla made really good milkshakes-- it was just too eggy on its own.) What is most interesting to me about this is that it's essentially mint tea ice cream-- you get the mint flavor by steeping fresh mint leaves in the cream. This makes the ice cream taste like, well, actual mint, not mint extract or what have you. It's a subtle flavor-- you don't notice the mint at first-- but it's definitely present. I don't think that I used the right chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate chunks), but they work.

Dinner tonight will likely be Betty Burgers, Saturn, or Diner after skating. Om Nom Nom. (Also, I will be getting a new Silpat this weekend from housemate-who-will-not-be-named-,-but-is-still-awesome.)
