Somehow I managed to meat all my goals this month. Write a fic above 1k: check. Write a TRC fic: check. Surpass previous August word counts: check. I still have no idea how I did that, but I managed it all in a week, because the rest of the month I was too blocked to write a single word.

Hello, lovelies! Would anyone be interested in receiving random gift fics from me on AO3?

I have a truckload of projects, mostly The Raven Cycle fics involving Kavinsky in some way, that I want to write eventually, but also some DC-related stuff, and I’m a big fan of the “Gift this work to” function on AO3. I believe that having someone to gift my fics to and potentially making that someone smile because of it might actually increase my productivity a little.

So if you want to help me out here and wouldn’t mind receiving a random gift fic some day, just comment on this post. Or shoot me a PM. Or like the above-linked tumblr post. We don’t need to have spoken or be mutuals or whatever. All you need is an AO3 account. (If you don’t have but want one, I have invite codes. *nudge nudge*)

Once you’ve indicated in whatever way that you're interested, I’ll contact you to narrow down your list of likes to make sure I won’t gift you anything you’ll hate or be uncomfortable with.

Maybe I’ll add more fandoms as I go along, but I’ll keep this to TRC for now. Fandoms you could expect (example pairings are my general inclinations, but they are most likely not the only ones I’ll write):
  • The Raven Cycle (anything Kavinsky, Gansey/Ronan, etc.)

  • DCU (Harley/Joker, Harley/Scarecrow, Harley/Jason, Jay/Dick, all the Harley(-femslash) pairings)
    • Batman: Arkham video games
    • Injustice: Gods Among Us (I don’t own IJ2 yet but expect words from me next year when I do)
    • Suicide Squad (Harley/Rick, Harley/Joker)
    • Wonder Woman (all the Amazon goodness)
  • D.Gray-man (Kanda/Lavi)
  • Gintama (maybe)
  • MaddAddam trilogy (heavy leanings towards Oryx & Crake)
That’s it (for now)!

Redirecting your friends here would be appreciated and will not be counted as signing up for fic. :)

Second-lowest word and fic count since January. Unless you add the 7k that I also wrote during the month but haven't posted yet because bitch ass fic ain't finished yet. Then it would be the second highest monthly word count.

(Last updated:) 2017-06-22 (17 fics)


nothing more than any artist dreams
Artist AU.
1. blue as a gunshot wound: Kavinsky/Prokopenko (M; 3,635 words; 01 February 2017)
Proko knows he's a doormat when it comes to Kavinsky. It doesn't take a genius to figure that one out.

2. Les liaisons dangereuses: Kavinsky/Prokopenko (M; 1,500 words; 27 May 2017)
You shouldn't be surprised when he drags you into the men's room, although somehow you are.

3. Hidden here below the fracture: Kavinsky/Ronan, Kavinsky/Prokopenko (M; 3,278 words; 28 December 2016)
Irritation lurks at the other end of his high, not inspiration.

Or, the one in which K tries to banish Lynch from his head. Through art. And fails.

Just give me what I came for

1. I've tasted hell and it tastes just like you: Kavinsky/Ronan (E; 2,565 words; 07 March 2017)
Everyone knows that when you need someone to hurt you, Kavinsky is it.

2. Stay with me, I'll show you paradise: Kavinsky/Ronan (E; 3,010 words; 14 March 2017)
Kavinsky would never admit it but he can’t say no to Ronan. No matter how late it is, he’s there. Though he’s usually not this destroyed.

3. my tongue still misbehaves: Kavinsky/Ronan (M; 500 words; 18 March 2017)
"Answer me this: how much would it piss you off if I got into Gansey's pants before you did?"

4. No sins as long as there's permission: Kavinsky/Ronan (E; 4,555 words; 15 April 2017)
WIP. "If we're gonna do this, I want you to leave Gansey out of it. Completely."



1. a new kind of love your life has never allowed + polytangle (M; 2,835 words; 31 March 2017)
Youtube AU, sorta. Or: Adam is trying to edit a video, Kavinsky has other plans, and Gansey interrupts them both by video-calling long-distance.


1. your heart frayed and empty (M; 2,705 words; 12 March 2017)
Gansey wants to help Ronan, but has been drawing blanks as to how. Ronan has an idea, but never dared give it voice or thought. Until now.

2. stealing like the tide across a map (M; 2,150 words; 16 March 2017)
The collar is heavy in your hands, heavy with the weight of what's being asked. You're aware that this could very well cost you your friendship, no matter what decision you make.


1. Something's got me and I just can't seem to choose: Ronan/Kavinsky (T; 1,250 words; 13 November 2016)
"You know where you can keep an even better eye on me, Lynch?" he asks. Ronan ignores the tickle of warm breath against the shell of his ear and empties his shot glass. "On the dancefloor. Come on, dance with me."

Or, the one in which Ronan doesn't dance with K. Because obviously.

2. It's lovely. I hate it.: Kavinsky/Ronan (G; 200 words; 03 April 2017)
Of weakness, disbelief, and growing families.

3. He wonders what to say and whether to say it (T; 500 words; 07 May 2017)
For the first time in over a year and a half, you consider going to confession, to cleanse your soul of the sins you've committed this past week.

4. I'm variously sweat or shudder + Kavinsky/Prokopenko (M; 500 words; 10 May 2017)
You're about ready to dissolve when his phone rings. Kavinsky, of course, has to answer.

5. No warning from either of us (M; 2,205 words; 13 May 2017)
Business AU. Niall Lynch has expanded his business of procuring rare items. In his absence, Ronan takes over the helm, although he has no real interest in it. That is, unless it means one-upping Kavinsky.


1. Reality bites hard (T; 2,050 words; 08 January 2017)
WIP. Congratulations on coming out," Gansey says.
"No fucking way. Kavinsky's not gay."

A joke, that's all this is, but not everyone seems to get it and suddenly has opinions about your life and who you are as a person. Trouble is, you soon find you're not so sure yourself anymore.


1. And it's a long way back from seventeen: Noah/Whelk (T; 1,210 words; 25 May 2017)
It wasn't only your skull that cracked that day.

Guess who's back? Not much to see here, though. January was a busy month.

Day 7

In your own space, create a fanwork. Make a drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. Arts and crafts. Draft a critical essay about a particular media. Put together a picspam or a fanmix. Write a review of a Broadway show, a movie, a concert, a poetry reading, a museum trip, a you-should-be-listening-to-this-band essay. Compose some limericks, haikus, free-form poetry, 5-word stories. Document a particular bit of real person canon. Take some pictures. Draw a stick-figure comic. Create something.

I was just working on this when this post appeared. So here you go.

Day 06

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include -a link to your wish-list if you feel comfortable doing so. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Check out other people's posts. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.

1. Coverart/banners to use when cross-posting my fic to tumblr (kind of like this one, just, you know, not quite as amateurish xD), because just posting the AO3 link kind of doesn't draw any attention at all.

Ideally, I'd love something that thematically goes together with each new fic or pairing I write. I have a gazillion of WIPs and ideas, so there would be a lot to choose from. Fandoms could be DCU (Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, etc.), Raven Cycle (Kavinsky, Ronan), and hopefully Sherlock soon too.

  • Something involving the aftermath of New Year's. (My most current WIP.)

  • Something to do with Harley, Selina and/or grief.

  • Roadtrip au

  • Fingers to the head, pointed like a gun: Arkhamverse, Harley and Jason. WIP.

  • Artist AU, like Hidden here below the fracture (Raven Cycle, Kavinsky, Proko, perhaps Ronan if I continue).

  • Stripper AU. (For my rewrite of I dance like I got diamonds. Suicide Squad, Harley/Joker.)

  • Demon AU, maybe.

  • Something for Trinity Blood's Esther and Dietrich.

  • Or just a one-size-fits-all banner with just a crooked spoon on it, haha?

Sidenote on Harley: I prefer her with blond hair, but make an exception for Injustice-verse Harley's red and black ;D

2. Someone to contact when I need new graphics for new projects I'm working on. Alternately, someone to walk me through the creation of above-mentioned banners in about a month or two.

3. A writing buddy/enabler for Raven Cycle (Kavinsky-centric, I'm warning ya) or such DCU fandoms such as Injustice, Arkhamverse, Suicide Squad, assorted Batcanon, etc (Harley Quinn-centric). Maaaybe eventually one for Teen Wolf (Stiles-centric, but no Sterek), but we'll see about that. And for D.Gray-man, eventually.

I have an absolutely wonderful writing buddy in [personal profile] neurotoxia. We ping-pong ideas, discuss things we are confused about, beta for each other, and just generally do a lot of hand-holding. Hands-down my favourite time was when we were both obsessed with Sherlock and a tattoo AU of N's making, and were just spawning idea after idea for it. Some of which even made it into writing!

Unfortunately, our fandom obsessions have shifted and we don't write that much for each other anymore. Yet through that I noticed how important it is for my idea creation and especially for my output if I have people close to me who are excited about That Thing I am working on.

Now, this is probably a more utopian wish, as I couldn't even really make use of it right away. Too much RL stuff taking priority. /flops

ETA: Totally forgot! 4. Comment on a work that doesn't have any comments yet. Yes, it's always nice to get more love on an already well-loved fic. But sometimes it's those fics that nobody seems to care about that are the creator's secret favourites.

Last year's wish list.

I'm really looking forward to going through everyone else's wish lists! :D Will probably be bookmarking them all to read later, though.

Day 03

In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Day 1

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I chose to go with works I created in 2016 that I feel no one saw.

1. she truly believes the lies (Batman: Arkham Knight - Christina Bell/Harleen Quinzel, T; 2,450 words)
Ordinary People AU. Nearly a year after their breakup, Harley is forced to contact her ex Christina with a special request: to pretend to be her girlfriend once more.

Reason: I generally feel like I'm no good with details, especially of the family background variety. In this, however, I managed to create a family context and had fun doing so. Since this is an AU, you don't need to know Arkham Knight specifically. You can just imagine Christina as a female Joker.

2. digging out stumps of old resentments (Injustice: Gods Among Us - Kate Kane/Harleen Quinzel, G; 250 words)
Noir AU, Prohibition. A rather unusual woman seeks out Kate for her investigative skills.

Reason: I have a fondness for the image of Harley as femme fatale in this.

3. Hidden here below the fracture (The Raven Cycle - Joseph Kavinsky/Ronan Lynch, Joseph Kavinsky/Prokopenko, M; 3278 words)
Artist AU. The one in which K tries to banish Lynch from his head. Through art. And fails.

Reason: Here I feel no one read this because (it's tagged Rovinsky... but Ronan doesn't even show up and it's one-sided attraction!) my summary sounds too cracky, which this thing is really, really not. It's a bit more moody and frustrated, because K has an art block. I'm just really fond of creative geniuses going ballistics because the one thing they feel defines them is not working for them anymore, and them not acknowledging the real reason they're frustrated.
