    B7 Fic: Take a Look at Me Now (PG-13)

    For elviaprose, although not necessarily what she wanted for the prompt "Avon leaves the Liberator. Zen and Orac parent-trap him into coming back."

    In other news, my Blakefest fic is just about ready, although no doubt I'll keep fooling around with it until posting opens on Friday.

    My Intoabar fic is well underway, it's not going to be very long but the minimum for the fest is only 500 words.

    B7 Fic Post: And Stop Calling It Shoreleave (R)
    A very old one of mine, reposted to link to a discussion about zine reviews.

    Drive-By: Felan! Kierex!
    It's always open OK Cupid Season for Nolan Ross around here. I have accepted that I just don't have the Porn gene, so I will probably never write it, but I am sure that during the five minutes Conrad was governor of New York both Patrick and Felix from Orphan Black competed for the commission for his official portrait and had a threesome with noted patron of the arts Nolan.

    Also, both Patrick and Victoria's old flame (the one played by James Purefoy) are TERRIBLE painters whereas both Felix and Kieren from In the Flesh are decent. Not sure what the hell Kieren would be doing in Canada although it's not unlikely Felix will have to go to England to do some sleuthing...he could sing "Cheer Up, Hamlet" to Kieren.

    Drive-By: Blakefest
    Blakefest fic due between the 25th and the 27th. Now standing at 11,989 words. But I think now I have all the basic scenes in place. I just have to add the sex and polish a bit and it should be good to go.

    Writing Meta: It's That Time Again
    Blakefest fic: 5662 words, and I did a slight restructuring that I think is going to work. I keep finding myself in the position of writing a PWP, and getting up to about 2,500 words and saying all I need is the sex scene, and I'm done!

    I envisioned the Blakefest fic as more or less an AU version of [redacted] episode. So now all I need is to put in the stuff about that episode and I'm all set. It reminds me a bit of "Babes in Arms," one of my very first fics ever, which was supposed to be a serious look at cross-training and how the crew learn skills from each other, and turned into a door-slamming farce.

    On the upside, at least *I* think the kitten scene is funny.

    Almost time for the next round of Intoabar! I remember bouncing hard off the prompt for the first round I did, because I had to use a character that I don't like, but I'm pleased with the result. The second round was fun but hard to write because it's very plotty. I did get to use my beloved Coen Brothers Gambit: i.e., everyone is running around behaving fairly logically but based on seriously flawed information.

    Drive-By: Xover Madness
    Just finished watching the NY Philharmonic concert version of Sweeney Todd:

    Beautifully staged by Lonnie Price (...who I remember from Merrily We Roll Along and Into the Woods on Broadway and who...isn't a kid any more). And beautifully spoken; every word was clear.

    Sweeney is played by Bryn Terfel, who looks *exactly* like Gan, only with straight hair. So, a crossover between Deathwatch and Hannibal. Ooooohkay...

    Drive-By: Notes from Elsewhere on the Intarwebz
    Of course it's not an accident--Joss Whedon having been involved in both AtS and The Avengers--but I think Thor and Groosalug would hit it off. And the ship name could be THug. Although he isn't super-powered, I think Benton Fraser should go along on their adventures. The Axis of Tall and Overly Polite!

    A LJ typo ("Virginia Wolf") made me wonder about whether the Teen Virginia Stephen was a lycanthrope, and, via The Werewolves of London, to The Werewolves of Bloomsbury. Pack Mom Lytton Strachey?

    Fic Update: Critters!
    My BlakeFest fic just broke 4,000 words. Yesterday I added the scene where Vila brings some adorable kittens aboard. Today I added the scene where Jenna threatens to steal some horses.

    The story I'm writing for elviaprose's prompt just broke 5,000 words. For some reason an undue percentage of the dialogue is coming out as questions. Possibly there is Space!Jeopardy to go with the Space!Monopoly.

    Drive-By: Librarians
    Inspired by a Crossovering mini (BtVS/Discworld)* about Giles carpooling, and by an FFA typo: A CLOCKWORK ORANG, which is about a librarian who is alternately vicious and pacific.

    *I originally typed Discowrld, which presumably rests on a mirrored ball

    Drive-By: Bad Bang
    I see from fail_fandom_anon that writing assignments have been parceled out for the BadBang (i.e., for intentionally terrible fic), with art signups in progress. Therefore I am too late to nominate:

    1. Clintasha and Bucky starring in Spy School Musical
    2. Dirty Dancing/Rizzoli and Isles xover: Detective Houseman's friends are always trying to fix her up...yes, everybody puts Baby in a Coroner.

    Om Nom Nom: Sweet Potato Scones
    We interrupt this radio silence to point out that if you're worried about using up that last baked sweet potato you have in the fridge (admittedly not as common a concern as, e.g., fear of flying) and there's a little bit of sour cream left in the container: 2 c. white flour, 1/2 c. oatmeal (uncooked flakes), rub in 1/2 stick of butter AND rub in the peeled sweet potato, throw in a handful of dried cranberries, sprinkle with coarse salt, mix, add a teaspoon each of baking powder and baking soda, enough milk to make a dough. I added some brown sugar but didn't really need it. I baked it as one big round of dough, which I marked into sixths with a knife before baking. Maybe half an hour in a preheated 350 degree oven?

    OMG so good with a cup of chai...

    Drive-By: Political
    Not that I watch GoT, but I can't help thinking of the Republicans as the Jon Snow party: bastards who Know Nothing.

    Drive-By: Power Ballad
    In Federation Fugitive, one-armed man chases you!

    I was in the greengrocer's and possible the ultimate classic 80s song* was on the radio. So now, just to torture elviaprose a little more with my WIP files, the Parent Trap story has a title: "Take a Look At Me Now." I have now written the first 100 words and the end of the story, and have been running dialogue in my head for That Really Upsetting Thing that happens in the middle. Also, I hope that I can tag "OFC/Surprise Canon Guest Star," because I hate having to give away the gag right up in the tags.

    *Well, OK, the one that isn't "Tell Me, Have You Ever, Really Ever Loved a Woman?"

    Drive-By: Solemn Girl
    Someone on fail_fandom_anon really or feignedly mixed up Fanny Price (from Mansfield Park) and Fanny Brice (the person Barbra Streisand plays in Funny Girl). Worst. Musical. Ever. The big song would be "You are woman, I am clergy-man." Or maybe "Oh, go ahead and rain on my parade, everyone else does." With an interpolation: "In my white room, with no fire, in the attic."

    Hey, kids,let's not put on a show in the old billiard room!

    Drive-By 2014 edition of the Obscure and British Comment-Fest, for which B7 qualifies.

    Blakes7...where the answer to "was the hope drunk wherein you dressed yourself?" is always "Yes." Especially when glass lizards are involved.
