snickfic: Meg Cas kiss closeup (Meg Cas)
[community profile] trickortreatex authors are revealed! I wrote five things, which I'm lumping here all in one post for convenience. I had a lot of fun playing in basically all my fandoms, especially since the Buffy characters I want to write usually aren't eligible for exchanges.

However, out of the bunch I definitely had a couple of favorites: the hockey fic (which at 4k feels absurdly long for a treat in a 300 word exchange, but oh well) and the steampunk Meg/Castiel. Because, you know, steampunk Meg/Castiel. Even if the fic doesn't really have a plot, as such.

When In Doubt, Set It On Fire - hockey RPF, Crosby/Ovechkin, 4000 words
First Sidney tells Alex Consol's ice is cursed. Then he says he has a plan to fix it. Then he stops talking to Alex very much at all, and that's when Alex starts to get worried. -- More monster-y than actual horror, it turned out. Oh well.

bright wings - SPN, Meg/Castiel, 1200 words
Castiel has metal wings. Meg has an oil can. -- AKA the steampunk fic. :DDD

The Beginning of a Beautiful Friendship - SPN, Meg + Bela friendship, 700 words
Meg goes to hell in search of loyal subjects. She thinks she may have found one. -- A treat for [livejournal.com profile] gryfndor_godess, with bonus Meg kvetching of Crowley's redecorating scheme. :D

Enough to Make a Girl Feel All Gooey - BtVS, Buffy/Faith, 500 words
Buffy told Faith to stay in Cleveland. Yeah, right. -- A treat for [livejournal.com profile] brutti_ma_buoni, theoretically an AU of the Wishverse. Yes, an AU of the AU. Hush.

wherever you go, there you are - MCU, Natasha + Bucky, 500 words
Natasha thought about the places she’d like to hide, given a choice. She ordered them by practicality, and she started at the bottom. -- My first MCU fic! Behold!

And now for Fic Mountain reveals! I wrote Natasha for the third time this year, this time from Yelena's POV. Natasha+Yelena is a fascinating, complex canonical relationship that just doesn't take much to tip it over into shippiness. (Even though I barely got there in this fic.)

For the record, the title is an allusion to the trapdoor spider, for reasons which may or may not become clear over the course of the fic. It's not my best title choice, let's just say, but I was a little desperate.

Trapdoor (1138 words) by Snickfic

Summary:

They're in hostile territory, Natasha is badly injured, and there is only Yelena to keep her alive - if she chooses to.

So it turned out I wrote two stories for Beyond Panels.

Open Road, Captain America comics, Natasha+Bucky
A post-apocalyptic road trip amnesiafic? Because why not? I had much bigger aspirations for this fic, but this is what I ended up with. It's, shall we say, largely a mood experiment. Or something.

Safe House, Black Widow comics, Natasha+Ana
This is very much a slice-of-life, between-the-scenes kind of fic for the new Edmondson/Noto volume of Black Widow. That book is 90% of Natasha on the job in foreign locales and 10% of her at home in a large, bare apartment in Little Ukraine, NYC. This fic flips those percentages. I ended up being pretty happy with it in terms of capturing Natasha's perspective in the canon, and also because I got to write female friendship in it, which makes me happy.

I think by and large these two fics demonstrate that I'm just ever so much happier if I'm working within or pushing against the confines of some specific canon, especially when I first start writing a new canon. It's only later when I become more comfortable with my own interpretation that I can relax my attention to canon detail and start exploring with big AUs and things.
