In other words, it was a good movie. I rewarded myself with an interlude at the movies tonight - seeing as I have been and will continue to be working non-stop 24/7 until my vacation starts at the end of December ;_; - and it was a good choice; gave me a lot to think about.

I can't believe I'd forgotten about the Sapir-Whorf theory! Well, not forgotten forgotten, but that I haven't been trying to weave it more into my universal translator world-building. It was my favorite linguistic theory back at uni, I really should incorporate it more in my own writing. Hmm, I think I shall have the garnea have no concept/emotion of fear or anger, only sadness and grief. That will make for both interesting culture clashes, linguistic difficulties and works with their way of life. Yay, aliens!

Arrival made me want to read the short story it is based on. It also made me finally sniff out the story Three Worlds Collide which I read way back when and really liked but lost track of. Recommended reading as basis for interesting discussions.

Oh well, time to go to sleep and then get back to work. Hopefully I'll get enough done tomorrow that I finally can let myself read all the other stories in the Reverse Bangs I've participated in! Check out [ profile] i_reversebang and ds9reversebang if you're curious; a lot of lovely art and fic over there! Fandoms are Inception and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

These are the fics I wrote for the exchanges:

Dreams of Others
Fandom: Inception
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Rating: Explicit
Tags: Alternate Universe - Magical Realism, Canon-Typical Violence, Implied/Referenced Abuse, Sexual Content
Summary: Hiding out in-between jobs should be an uneventful thing, laying low and keeping out of the cops' search lights. But Eames learned long ago that neither Arthur nor Ariadne can resist a client who might be a target for the Others, and this latest one was sent their way courtesy of Dominic Cobb himself. Resigned to help Arthur and Ariadne play knights in shining armor Eames has no idea exactly how fast this supposed quick-fix project is about to go downhill.

Spy Games
Fandom: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Pairing: Elim Garak/Julian Bashir
Rating: Mature
Tags: Holodecks/Holosuites, Roleplay, Xenophilia, Cardassians with tails
Summar: Garak and Bashir spend some time on the holodeck, enjoying a spy novel of Bashir's.

Did a post like this almost two years ago...and most of my projects have remained at a stand-still due to work, health and a million other things *sigh*

It's list time again! (Whenever is it not list-time with me...). These are not all my writing projects, just the ones I'm prioritizing right now.

If anyone's curious about my writing projects (original and fanfiction), I have a tumblr for my writing and a tag on my ordinary tumblr for all posts about said writing stuff.

Projects are not in alphabetical order this time around, but instead in "how complete is this"-order, with closest-to-being-finished at the top of the list.

Here there is a list )

List of fanfiction WIPs is coming up soon. Because lists.

The Sea is Deep

Felt like trying out Inkitt, so I brushed up one of my old short stories (”The Sea is Deep”) and posted it over there.

Inkitt turned out to be too much work for me right now + a little iffy (e.g. I can't delete my account). Thus I've moved the story to [personal profile] booksabaking instead. Link above goes there now.

Story summary:
Nadina and Mary are fleeing a war that should have separated them. Mary has chosen to take work on a warship, hiding Nadina among the cargo. All they need to do is hold out and not be discovered until they reach the right islands. That turns out to be easier said than done once an unnatural fog sweeps in over the fleet.

Genre: Romance/Fantasy

To read the story, just click on the sea above.

I've gotten my Yuletide assignment and am looking forward to writing it and I'm having great fun writing on my NaNoWriMo story!

It's always so encouraging to read something you yourself have written and being angry with yourself when you reach the part that hasn't been written yet because you want to read the ending XD

Just knowing how it ends isn't quite the same as reading. And who knows how the story will grow and surprise me while I write?

Hope everyone else participating in NaNo is having as much fun as I am!

Oooh, and here's the latest commission of my book characters that I indulged myself with. Made by the fantastic ladynorthstar over on tumblr.

Art to be found under this cut )
nonesane: (Star Trek saves whales.)
Realized I probably should make a separate post for this, since I noticed I'd forgotten to list some gift-stories in my previous post.

List here! )
nonesane: (Sadly this is true for me.)
I never seem to get a clear idea of what I myself am working on when it comes to writing, which is a bit annoying. I'm going to make two posts where I try to sort out what I should be focusing on these last months of the year + what I should put aside for a while.

This first list consists of original works. The next is about fanfiction.

The stories )

Just got done with NaNoWriMo...well, I got done with it yesterday, I've been cleaning my apartment, making food and catching up with reality all day.

The day's work has led to two things: 1) Me getting order among my many story files and 2) an offline friend telling me she now ships Garak/Bashir and demanded I write that fic I'd been talking about.

Thus I had to reorganize and prioritize my fics, because I need to get stuff done dammit! This is my new Works In Progress list, in case anyone is curious. I've added a "schedual" comment to each, giving vague time frames for when they will be worked on. If someone expresses interest in any of the projects on back-burner, I might move them up to priority status ;)

I've also put a lot of stories "On Hold" to make sure I focus on what I'm most interested in right now. Just keeping them around to remind myself they exist.

(I'll be posting a "prompts and plotbunnies" post later on, when I've gone through all the inspiration I've tagged at Tumblr during the last year...)

Here there be WIPs! )

It's actually happened! I ordered five free copies for myself and my friends only two hours ago!

I published through Create Space due to winning free copies through NaNo, so "How to sway them" will show up on Amazon and Kindle soon-ish. Go here for the Kindle sale.

Here's some lovely fanart by my sister:
A lot of the main cast seen here! )

See the original, larger image at her dA gallery!

I finished the third and final draft yesterday! I probably culled too many commas, but I'm too tired to care XD I still like the story, so reading through it was a surprising amount of fun!

Hopefully my wonderful, overworked editor will have a chance to look at it before the deadline is up, but I completely understand if you haven't got the time!

My sister thinks she'll have the cover done today, so this is actually happening! BOOOOOK!
