Okay, sorry I've been so totally out of contact. I'm mostly on my Tumblr right now because my fandom is most active there, as much as I'd rather it be here or on DW.

But anyway. We (titianArchivist and myself) have completed the first "book" of Wires and Stars, our Sollux/Psiioniic epicfic, and I have all these rambly thoughts to tell you sometime about creativity and how awesome it is to have a creative partner because this is the only novel-length work I've both completed and been genuinely happy with completing (same for Titian), and it's making me think about the possibility of going back towards writing as a career.

The series isn't finished, but the first part is finally out the gate. All seventeen chapters of it. WITH FANART ALL OVER THE PLACE, oh my god. Not by us, but by people who actually draw, wow.


Wires and Stars: Initiation

in chapters * as one piece


Story contains pseudo-incest [of the "characters are genetically related but don't have a human-style family relationship" variety], body horror, angst, hurt/comfort, age difference, mental health issues... let's just say our motto is "everything is beautiful and everything hurts", and we're dedicated to both dealing with really dark material and being ultimately kind to our readers as a baseline. It's an attempt to tell an ultimately hopeful story in a crapsack world.

We have an authorial policy, in response to a number of concerned questions: ask directly for spoilers if you need them. Fanfiction should be fun! It should be fun for everyone, at every level of narrative surprise comfort or lack thereof!

If you want to skip to the smut, we also wrote fingers of light, a 12k smutty one-shot that takes place just before the last chapter of Initiation. It's somewhat spoilery for the story arc of Initiation, but if you're a skip-to-the-smut sort of person (no shame in that!) you probably don't mind.

Still need to write up the FAQ of "things you need to know about Homestuck to make our fic comprehensible if you're not a Homestuck reader", but as a general principle, most of them are the sort of thing you'll know if someone has told you about Homestuck at length and if you keep the wiki handy: we're trying very hard with this to make it relatively accessible to non-Homestuck fans. And, if you're a non-Homestuck who wants to read it and is waiting on said FAQ, please let me know! It'll give me motivation to work harder. :-)

Enjoy!

Chapter 6: whenever I'm alone and you're lost out there


Teaser:
This is not something you can engineer.

This should not upset you as much as it does.

But: identify your variables, and you can give them parameters. You finally have a name, now, for the loss and the longing and the reaching; you know the shape of the shameful crack in your heart.

More chapter teasers below the cut )

And a bunch of new art in chapters 2, 3 and 7 and linked from chapter 5!

Sorry about the delayed updates. I've been mostly over on Tumblr, as there are more Homestucks there, even though I like LJ and DW better.

In other news, there's now art in Chapter 2 and 3, and another piece going up soon!

Chapter 5: cup your hands like the conch to your ear

Teaser/Summary:
“I think, I think last time you could hear me I asked you to tell me everything. I. I still want that.” You look him square in the eye, still can’t get over how his eyes reverse-mirror yours, and your stupid defensiveness goes to brittle nothing like a drying soap bubble.

In which attempts are made to divulge memories, assuage discomfort, and consult a third party, with mixed success in all cases.

(Sollux/Psiioniic epic in progress by [livejournal.com profile] amberite and TitianArchivist. Warnings/ratings up on AO3. Body horror, weird dream shit, later smut.)

Chapter Teaser:
You are too open. You are defenseless. You are not a vessel for voices, you are a fleetbeast dead center on the highway, you have no foreknowledge of what you are about to endure, you will be destroyed, insane. You are not yourself. You are so young.

You know who you are.
You know who you are.

Chapter 1 * Chapter 2 * Chapter 3

Wanting What You Have (G, Astrid/Walter, no warnings)

Spoilers for early Season 3. Perspective of one Olivia Dunham, agent of Fringe Division.

The trouble with trying to play along and assuming you know what's happening is that sometimes you'll figure out something you weren't supposed to have known already.

Like about Astrid and Walter.

[Note to readers: I'm scarcely past this point in the show, so please don't spoil me for future events!]

You know you want to:

The Doctor Who Kinkmeme lives. Go write porn in it!

This has been a public service announcement. Have a nice day.
amberite_archive: (lovelovelove)
More details later. But: I got not one but TWO Yuletide fics. One about Brand of Amber, and the other an elaboration on the Thomas Dolby song Airwaves. Both really fantastic.

AND the third fandom pairing I'd requested was written in for other recipients, so I got ALL THE FAN FICTION I WANTED FOR CHRISTMAS. Squee!

Now, I really need to be going to bed. Breakfast in less than seven hours. But OMG! Yay!
amberite_archive: (no time for us four/master)
You know, I'm really amused that when watching Castrovalva on Youtube, the algorithm suggests "kinky latex and rubber outfits" as a related video.

I say it's [livejournal.com profile] snowgrouse's fault, since I certainly haven't seen the episode the same way since reading her story (WarningNC17DubconWrongness) Valeriana.
amberite_archive: (three/master one sweet moment)
(Please note that all content you will likely click on links to from here gets a blanket NC-17.)

The Sickathon continues with some nicely pared prose from [livejournal.com profile] nostalgia_lj, almost a year after its inception.

I think perhaps it deserves a birthday party.

If you write Doctor Who porn, you should write a story for the one-year anniversary of the Fanfic Challenge That Made Itself. (Really. Because it started with four of us, each staring at a one-off line from [livejournal.com profile] astrogirl2's story and each having the same thought: I would write that, but... too wrong! And then we got into a double-dog-dare goading match spanning more than one journal. And then the id box got opened up, and, well. You know the rest.)

I this fandom. Even when I'm only a tiny bit involved with it these days.

Edit:

Ooh! [livejournal.com profile] elance made one.
Yay! Moar pls!

I identify herein my contribution to Yuletide:

What Millie Saw

Fic for the Diana Wynne Jones Chrestomanci series. Takes place as an interstitial for Conrad's Fate, but I tried to leave enough clues about the general situation so that a non-informed reader could still enjoy the story, which plays with what goes on backstage of the courtly, traditional relationships in the series.

Thank you for all who commented on the archive! I really enjoyed hearing the feedback and of course am always eager for more. I enjoyed writing [livejournal.com profile] mushimimi's request.

Thanks,
--[livejournal.com profile] amberite
