Day 13

In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private.

I recently went back to review last year’s goals and I basically met all of them except the most important one, heh.

Let’s see if posting openly about it is setting me up for failure, the way it did in recent years. Putting these in effect after March. Until then, 2017′s framework is good enough.

  1. Post more than 152k.
  2. Post a fic of more than 1,667 words every month (2017′s best average, although I’ve watered it down after October).
  3. Fill more than 25 Harley Quinn prompts (2016 best). Past fills.
  4. Fill all the prompts that are still sitting in my inbox.
  5. Continue/finish WIPs. (Vague, I know. There’s currently a WIP list languishing in my tumblr queue and it is long. Especially since there’s only one WIP I actually consider started.) More precisely:
    1. Finish the first part of the Dance rewrite.
    2. Finish the first chapter of the Roadtrip AU.
    3. Finish the third chapter of Fingers to the head.
  6. Improve in areas I’m still no good at, like setting or world building or character history and stuff.
  7. More generally, I’d like to try my hand at darker themes this year (and at more unapologetic pr0n, not that these things are mutually exclusive).

If you’re interested in seeing me achieve my goals (especially on the more disturbing front), let me take this opportunity to plug my Giftfics post again. Basically, I’m looking for DCU fans who wouldn’t mind me gifting them my works on AO3. I've gathered a gazillion of prompts (most of them Harley Quinn, Jason Todd and/or Dick Grayson-related, though I’m still not up to scratch on the latter two) from all over the place, but not all of them come with a recipient attached.

Having recipients for my fics has helped me and my output tremendously in the past and it would be a great honour for me if I could add more people to the list, so I don’t have to bother the same two people all the time. :’) (It's also part of my wish list, for those folks from the Fandom Snowflake Challenge who are seeing this ;D)

Day 12

In your own space, create a fanwork. Make a podfic, an icon, a sketch, a meta, or a rec list. Arts and crafts. Cross stitch. Draft an essay about a particular medium. Put together a picspam or a fanmix. Write a review of book you love, a ship manifesto, a you-should-be-listening-to-this-band essay. Create something.

I facepalmed when I saw this challenge today, because just hours before I had posted some one sentence fic to my tumblr (Harley/Ivy, Jason/Roy, Gimli/Legolas, Keith/Lance and Barry/Victor if you wanna have a read). But since I created them before the challenge went up I thought it'd be cheating to submit them. So instead, have a completely new one, which incidentally is also work #444 on AO3.

444. Love you best when you are savage and bitter (Batman: The Telltale Series - John Doe/Harley Quinn, T; 500w)
Tags: Knifeplay and bloodplay of sorts
Summary: "What's that hideous thing you're wearin'?" she asks, face mirroring the disgust in her voice.

Sidenote: I've always wanted to use this challenge to create something outside of my comfort zone, but January so far hasn't been the right time for that. Let's see what January holds next year. In the meantime, I'll be continuing to write fic.

Day 8

In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favorite interview, a book, a scene from a movie, etc) and explain why you love it so much. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Initially, I didn't think I could come up with /pieces/ of a canon and/or express my thoughts into words because my brain didn't work. I considered gushing Wooden Overcoats, because that is giving me a lot of joy these days, but I love it as a whole and wouldn't have been able to single out a part of it.

And then I played Batman: The Telltale Series again today. And it reminded me how much I love the Harley/Joker relationship in it. Or the Joker figure in general. I'm not even sure in how far this counts as original, because it's more of a remix in a way, but it's officially snactioned, so here goes:

Cut for spoilers and stuffCollapse )

Anyway. This is my rambly and inadequate attempt at putting into words what I love John and his relationship with Harley.

Day 9

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.

It's funny. I have over 400 fics on AO3, but there's only a handful I might consider reccing. Most of them I've recced in previous years. (The Chrysanthemum Vow is my go-to fic rec, because although it's four years old, I haven't done any better yet.) Anyway, things from 2017:

1. I wear these scars, I own these mistakes: Kavinsky, Ronan/Adam (The Raven cycle, T; 2,733 words; 28 August 2017)
Rehab AU. A year after the fateful Fourth of July party, Kavinsky suddenly comes out of the woodwork to apologize for what he's done.

I've written a LOT of TRC this year, but I think this one's my fave. Honourary mention to "I've tasted hell and it tastes just like you" (Rovinsky pwp), because that's the one that actually helped me break into writing for the fandom, and "Stay with me, I'll show you paradise" (same), which is its companion, but which I'm a tad fonder of because it shows Kavinsky a little more broken.

2. Fingers to the head, pointed like a gun: Harley Quinn/Jason Todd (Batman: Arkham Knight, T; 9.5k) 2/?
Post-game WIP. Jason and Harley team-up.

I posted the second chapter in October after a year of "hiatus" - and I wrote most of the chapter in a day, a fact which still boggles me. I'm not 100% satisfied with the ending, but eh, I might scrub it a bit when I post the third chapter.

3. here is a sing song of all the things you make me think of: Harley/Dinah/Ollie (Injustice: Gods Among Us, T; 2,565 words; 01 April 2017)
Harley loves the spring, with its colors and feelings of love it brings out in everyone.

More or less a stream of consciousness fic from Harley's pov. Rambling is one of my favourite things to do and here Harley's rambling on about the colour green and its associations for her.

Honourary mention to "Turn my secrets inside out and you will find me" (DCEU: Harley Quinn/Wonder Woman), which is another rambly fic dealing with Harley's crush on Diana. My last work of 2017.

From this post on tumblr:
I’ve seen a lot of ask memes focused on the past year, but none for what people are planning or hoping for in their writing in the new year. So here are a few questions that I thought of… feel free to add more!

1. Do you have a word-count goal for 2018?

2. Will you participate in any fandom exchanges or fic challenges, etc?

3. Do you anticipate writing for a new fandom in 2018? Which one?

4. Do you think you’ll stop writing for a fandom in 2018? Which one?

5. Which WIP is first on your list to complete this year? Will you post a snippet?

6. Which yet-to-be-started fic is first on your list?

7. Will you change anything about the way you interact with other writers?

8. Is there a story idea in your mental vault that you’ve never been brave enough to try writing? Is 2018 the year?

9. Short term goals… what do you hope to complete this week or in January?

10. Will you keep a record of all the fics you write and/or post this year?

11. Would you like to try any new fanfic genres or tropes in 2018?

12. Will you change anything about the way you edit or rewrite in 2018?

13. Aside from fanfic, are there any other fan works you’d like to try creating? Fanart, or fanvids, gifsets, or podfic?

14. Have you ever lost large chunks of your work in the past, due to not backing up your work? Will you change your methods in 2018?

15. Do you foresee any personal or professional obstacles in 2018, that would keep you from creating fanworks?

16. Do you have that one fanfic that you wrote a ton for, ages ago, but never posted? Will this be the year, come hell or high water, that it WILL get finished and posted?

17. Do you typically answer all comments/reviews individually? Do you plan to change the way you interact with your readers this year?

18. Do you typically post multi-chapters as you write, or finish it all and then start posting? Would you like to change your posting method?

19. Would you consider non-fandom writing events, like NaNoWriMo or writing contests?

20. Any plans to work on original fiction this year?

Questions 8, 9 and 12 answered here.

Day 7:

In your own space, create a love meme for yourself. Let people tell you how amazing and awesome and loveable you really are.

This is a tough one, because I prefer comments on my fic rather than on my person. However, I promised myself I'd work on more positivity this year, so this will be a start. (Though really, if you want to tell me which of my works is your favourite, I’d be more than thrilled.)

Go on, make me cry with your kindness, I dare you.

Day 3

In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

1. Verschlimmbessern (8191 words) by MissNaya
Chapters: 2/?
Fandom: DCU
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Rape/Non-Con
Relationships: Dick Grayson/Roman Sionis, Dick Grayson/Jason Todd/Bruce Wayne (referenced), Roman Sionis/Jason Todd (past), Dick Grayson/Jason Todd
Characters: Dick Grayson, Roman Sionis
Additional Tags: Dubious Consent, False Identity, Implied/Referenced Abuse, Dom/sub, Daddy Kink, Spanking, Dirty Talk, Incest Play, Fingerfucking, Rough Sex, Masochism, Rimming, Creampie, Sloppy Seconds, Angst and Porn, Face-Sitting
Series: Part 2 of Blurry (Extended)

Jason is pulled off of active duty when Bruce becomes concerned for his mental health. Dick temporarily takes up the Red Hood mantle in his place, in an attempt to finish what he started. It doesn't take long for him to get in over his head.

Bookmarker's Notes:

Things I adore: Dick shocked and angry at learning how Roman has been using Jason, Dick resenting his beauty but loving the attention all the same, Jason being so jealous and envious of Dick, (Dick wanting both Jason and Bruce). Dirty-bad-wrong in all the right ways!

2. this and this Slade/Dick fanart. NSFW.

3. i quit my dancing just to be around you (2075 words) by weird_bird
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: DCU (Comics), Red Hood and the Outlaws (Comics)
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Akila of Bana-Mighdall/Artemis of Bana-Mighdall
Characters: Akila of Bana-Mighdall, Artemis of Bana-Mighdall
Additional Tags: Pool Sex, Breathplay, Ass Play, Humiliation

Untying the leather band from around her wrist, Akila twists her hair up onto her head and secures it there. The suggestion of her smile pins Artemis. “Where do you want to kiss me?” She folds one leg over another, posture perfect. Artemis is not the most lyrically-inclined of the Bana-Mighdall Amazons, but as their poets say, sometimes a goddess shall appear in the flesh.
