Arthur 2

So, I just signed up for Camp NaNoWriMo and after playing with Scrivener for pretty much the whole day I have an idea for what to start with tomorrow.  Arthur from Inception is Arthur Pendragon reincarnated. 

Con: he will have to look like Joseph Gordon-Levitt instead of Bradley James (weeping)
Pro: I can have Eames and Gwaine hook up (worth it all)


Snape's Daughter

So I just signed up for Camp NaNoWriMo and in case anyone from there is looking for the fanfiction I wrote last November (and finished in April) it can be found all over the place:


I would recommend reading it at AO3 or Potions & Snitches, I did some editing after it was posted at fanfiction.net.  I considered myself a winner (I always consider myself a winner) because I had over 60,000 words by the end of November but in the end the story was about 148,000.  Take that as a warning if you do an alternate version of a Harry Potter book/year, you're probably going to end up writing almost as much as she did.  Yikers.

This week's challenge, Steampunk Erotica (not)

Flash Challenge: Must Love Robots

Speedy quick, have to be speedy quick.  I can do speedy, I can, I can.  The overlord is packing down the assembly line, the click of his boots somehow audible over the whirring and the zzzzips of the pneumatics.  He stalks with his hands clasped behind his back, how could I not think of him as an overlord?

Lead on Birthday Boy

This week's flash fiction challenge was to write a story, with plot, in three sentences.  Pursuing plot is like chasing the Easter Bunny for me, or some such.  My prey of choice is allegor-ators...  but wait I just made that up.
