Who knew!

So I'm sitting here last night with four works in progress open and not progressing when I had a thought. A thought about a completely different fic.

Those of you whe know me well know that I have this fic that I have been sitting on since about a month after I got into this fandom. It's set at the end of Season 1, and starts when Steve is still in prison. It's a Hawaii Five-0/Moonlight/The Shield/Three Rivers/Criminal Minds/Whiteout Crossover that is already 25k long, but because so much time has slipped away between when I started and now, (mainly beecause I was wrangling with a plot inconsistency) I was concerned it was never going to be finished. Last night I had an epiphany of sorts. Only problem is that I need to make Doris something i'm not sure she is yet, oh that and I might have to add Law & Order:SVU to the crossover mix, and probably break 150k.

Lookie, I may have committed Coda to 3.03 and it's not my usual fare, it may be Chin & Steve.

If'n you're interested you might find it here - Grief

Also on a random note? The Steve in my icon always reminds me of Speed Keanu, am I right?

I may have committed coda to 3.01. If you're interested you can find it here.

I don't often rec fic, but this fic feeds so deliciously into my weapons kink so well and what Kono feels is so much my experience that I can't help but push this fic like it's fic crack.

If you haven't already, go read Protege by [livejournal.com profile] kristen999. You won't regret it.

Why are you still here? you should be reading. Go on...

So.....

I have a question.

What's your definition of pre slash?

I'm not sure if my definition is right. But then how I define blond isn't exactly in line with the rest of the world so who knows.

To me pre slash is the time when whichever partner or both is lusting after the other. However, many fics I've seen lately are labelled pre-slash even though they have kissing, hand-jobs, groping and even blow jobs. Is that how y'all see it? Because to me once they've had that first lip lock/sexually themed touching there is no pre about it anymore, they've slipped right down that slippery slope and into the gully of slash.

Am I wrong?
kapuahi: (H50 - Steve - Floor plant)
So I've got a lot going on and a lot not going on, some dot points and questions might explain it all.

*I'm so time poor that the only place I'm even briefly checking is LJ, yes I'm on all the other places (Facebook, Twitter, Tmblr, Myspace - you name it I'm there) but if you seek me and I'm not answering it's because I haven't seen it. If you really need me hit me up on LJ I'll see it eventually.

* SO I've delved back into school. Currently working on a Bachelor of MultiMedia/Marketing (yes the bastards at Uni changed it's name) and a Diploma of Tourism.

* Am really behind on a lot of my stuff, most pointedly my 100 things posts. Will be getting onto that asap.

* Currently have three Bang sized fics almost finished, two almost at let the beta tear them apart stage. and also 30+ smaller fics.

* also brain is being eaten by the concept of hiatus project of rewriting S2 the way it should be but unless I can sort a way to turn it into a comm event/challenge it won't happen before the start of season 3. Which will make me sad.

* Have had some things going on that have made parts of being on line a pain in the ass so I've been avoiding it somewhat. If I've missed anything can y'all point me in the right direction?

* Friend may need some help in June so I may be off to my favourite place in the world - no it's not Disneyland, for a couple of weeks in June.

* have been mainlining two TV programs. Supernatural during the day and Stargate Atlantis at night. Have developed quite the thing for Joe Flanigan and Jason Momoa. Am currently seeking out Sheppard/Ronon fic, am not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. Also really resisting the urge to write super porny ficlet in said pairing.

* While I'm on the confessions thing I have two more, and they are part of the same confession so here goes. I don't appreciate movies that are based on comic books. Why I don't know, I just don't never have and I'm hoping the Avengers will break that mold but I'm not holding out hope. Also, while on the subject of the Avengers, lets talk about Jeremy Renner shall we? I don't get it. At all. Somebody please apprise me of WTF it is about him that has y'all off your nuts about him, because I don't see it.

* God help me I've started plotting out an original manuscript. Where I fit that in I'm not sure, but I'm going to do what I can to make it happen. I think it helps in my head that I'm aiming for the schmaltzy romance market, but whatever works right?
kapuahi: (H50 - Danny  - Really?)
Already....Sad isn't it. It's going to be a long hiatus.

What are your plans for the next three months?

Me? I've got a few things planned.

I'm working on watching the complete series so far of Supernatural, Stargate Atlantis, and maybe NCIS. Thinking about watching the first season of a couple of shows that popped up this year, notably Grimm and that thing with Poppy Montgomery.

Creatively? I've got some big fics that are so close to finished it's just going to take a little bit of work to push them over. Also I've had a huge idea that I'm not sure what to do with. I want to work on it but I know already it's going to put everything else I want to do offline so I'm not sure I want to start or even if I can do it on my own. So grab a hot beverage and settle in, maybe you can help me decide.

By Season 1 Standards, Season 2 pretty much sucked, am I right? I think part of it was our expectations, part of it was shitty and stunt casting and the rest was the writing falling in a big Journey-to-the-Centre-of-the-Earth hole. Which got me to thinking, what if it did live up to expectations, what if all the casting was spot on adding incredible talent to the already incredible mix, what if the writers actually remembered WTF they had introduced and actually used it from episode to episode. That thought brought me to the idea that we have talented writers in fandom. We could fix this. And I really think we could.

What if we kept their actors and their cases and their overarching parameters and rewrote the season? You know what I mean don't you? Lets not drop the ball on Kono, lets actually have the 'offscreen' moments make it on screen. Lets actually make Lori the kickass governor's spy she was allegedly supposed to be, and while we're there lets make her actually able to act. Lets have Malia actually speak at her own wedding.

Think we could pull that off and make it satisfying to all of us?

While we all sit here and angst over what will be tonight I have a question for the fic writers in our midst.

I currently archive all my fic on AO3. It's easy for me, I'm a coding moron so there is rarely a time when I cock up posting to AO3, so i'm not going back 43 times to fix something that I've not done properly the first time. However, I'm wondering what weveryone else does, and at the same time I angst about having a secondary location.

My question? What is your archiving process of choice? Do you have two places? Do you just post to your own LJ and link everywhere else? Do you not care? Do you really not like a specific archive? Why not? Is there somewhere better than A03 or LJ or DW that I haven't found?

Wow, when I said that I had a question I was lying, I apparently had a laundry list of them.

{Take the 100 Things challenge!}


So I'm already doing this with Music, but Music is the stuff that I choose, basically that I enjoy doing, but this one is for the things that you might enjoy.

I'm totally stealing this from [livejournal.com profile] finduilas_clln because it a)looks like fun and b)is a really good idea.

This is my 100 things post for

100 Fandom Requests

Since fic is the only thing I'm equipped to create, basically, this will be the Master Post where you can all request your fandom related fic. Request as many as you want! Come back as often as you'd like! So... for the parameters...

Hawaii Five-O Fandom
- I will write drabbles or ficlets. The length of the fic will depend on how inspired I am by your prompt. As you know, my main pairings is Steve/Danny. Your prompt/request can be as vague or specific as you like.

Other Fandoms

Your safest bet is H50, but Magnificent Seven, The Young Riders and Lotrips might be possible as well.
kapuahi: (H50 - McDanno - Hug)
You always know it's been a good ep when there is fic committed right after it's screened.

I may have joined in. If you're interested you'll find it here.

And heaven help me I may be working on something for MMOM. Be afraid people, be very afraid.
kapuahi: (H50 - McDanno  - SNuggles)
Finally, finished the last chapter of Ho'ike a Maka, it's here if you needed it.

Now off for some banging.
kapuahi: (H50 - Steve -  B/W Profile)
I may have committed S02E20 Coda. You may find it here if you're of a mind to.
kapuahi: (H50 - McDanno - Sepia)
stolen from [livejournal.com profile] stellarmeadow because hullo! Fellow Lemming....

#777 Challenge?
Supposedly, it's #777 challenge day?! Who knew?

You go to the 7th page of your WIP, 7th line down, and copy/share the next 7 lines.


Finding nothing he considered useful, yet, in the house, he moved quickly towards the barn.

The barn was the same as he remembered it, the same as many barns. His father had kept his equipment meticulously and everything appeared to be the same now, everything had a place and for the most part was in it. Walking into the tack room he let his fingers trace over dust covered saddles, across the workbench, memories flooding over him as he let his fingers touch his father’s hand tooled saddle bags. The creak of a door dragged him from his memories, both hands dropping to his hips, drawing his Colts, he aimed one at each door, flicking his gaze between the entrances.
kapuahi: (H50 - Steve  - cammo)
So... I may or may not have written a wee 2.16 coda here.

Go have a look if you're of a mind to, if you haven't already.

That is all.

So, I've finished my exchange fic, next big challenge is the Bang fic, which I've kept the same basic plot I started with but I've restarted so many times I'm starting to think I have issues. Hell, I know I have issues, but I never realised they were to do with writing before. But I digress, I've finally gotten into the meat of the story and it's working how I wanted it to.



5235 / 40000 words. 13% done!

Once this is done, I'll be onto Western!Five-0 and more of the Crash and Burn series, and my Western Lovers RPS (which may or may not now have a Scott/Alex volume). Oh and somewhere in there I need to fit my Holiday Swap fic.

and then there is the million and one plot bunnies that I have corralled.

My Muse, how I have missed you, and now you decide I need to write everything at once?

But have something to brighten your day

Poor Steve isn't getting much sympathy.....


"Because your back has more colour than that ridiculous ink on your shoulders, and you managed to get yourself shot in the ass."
"In the ass? Really?" he looked up into Danny’s face.
Danny smiled as he reached out to press the cup of ice chips against Steve's lips again. “Technically it was an ass shot.”
"You’re never going to let me live it down are you?"
"Maybe sometime around Christmas 2024. Danny grinned.

I'm come to the conclusion that I watch too much television. This will come as no surprise to [livejournal.com profile] alassenya. Tonight when I was balancing what to record and what to watch live I made a list and it frightened even me.

Who do I share these with )
In other news, I have my exchange fic almost ready for beta, she should have it by the time she's home from work.

My Bang fic is also taking much better shape than it had been in. Now I just have to put it together.
