Ha ha it has been ONE MILLION YEARS since I posted links to any of my fic. So here's a bunch, and I'm eschewing the AO3 share format because it takes up too much space for so many fics. In chronological order:

As Moves the Glacier - Frostbite, Keaton/Victoria, 100 words. A sensation-play drabble, mostly for the purposes of getting the tag canonized.

Desert Flower - hockey RPF, Fleury, 100 words. A melancholy drabble (BUT NOT AS SAD AS FLOWER'S CONCUSSION ;__________;).

A Good Yarn is Hard to Find - hockey RPF, Granlund/Koivu, 1100 words. A very silly fic about Finns and sweaters that I wrote as a gift for fandomgiftbox.

As Lucky as Lucky Can Be - hockey RPF, Olli/Geno with background Sid/Geno, 4900 words. This is the sequel/companion piece to my Sid/Geno exchange fic from earlier this year. Someone mentioned they'd like to see more of Olli and Geno, and it just so happened I had already written several scenes from Olli's POV in order to kind of figure out where he was at. Somehow in September those scenes magically turned into a complete fic in the space of about three days. I'm really happy with how it turned out. I got to write Geno from a totally new perspective, because I've always paired him with other guys from the core before; I got to write Olli (<3); and I also got to show how Olli has no idea of most of what was going on in the original fic and doesn't care. Just dating Geno is quite enough for him to handle. :) :) :)

you touch my wires - hockey RPF, Olli/Tanger, 2400 words. A cyborg AU! This was for the flash exchange that happened last month. I'd been wanting to write this pairing, and then downjune mentioned she liked robot AUs, and suddenly it all came together. What two better guys than these two to angst about their bodies not performing as designed? :\

i feel love - Riverdale, Josie/Cheryl, 1500 words. Fake dating! This was for femslashex, and my recip described the relationship between these two as being almost political, which I found extremely inspiring. In the course of writing this fic I realized how freaking awesome Valerie is and how much I loved writing her.

In addition to Multifandom Drabble, I've written and posted a random collection of stuff.

* Like a Clown - Hockey RPF, a 700-word Sid/Olli timestampto that WIP I keep talking about.
* Overemotional - GotG, Mantis/Gamora, touching and not touching
* next - GotG, Gamora/Carina (from the first movie), what to do after you're free

And most importantly, my S/G exchange fic, which is first and foremost about Sid/Geno but also Sid/Geno/Olli poly and Sid&Flower. There's a lot of feels. Possibly it's very sappy.

Just as Geno rounded the corner boards, Olli teased the puck off his stick and wristed it to the net. It pinged off the post, and Geno laughed outright, a belly laugh full of delight. Sid eyed Olli, curious to see if Olli recognized the sound for what it was. The way his cheeks were pinking, Sid thought he probably did.

Hmm.

I assume by now most of you have seen this awesome hour-long Geno documentary from last year, but since Imzy is shutting down, I'm copying over a handful of things I posted there that seemed worth copy, and this list of highlights is one.

Anyway, this documentary is SO FULL OF GOODIES.
  • He talks to his sticks! If things aren't going well, he says you have to tell the stick to score.
  • He goes on for quite a while about how he doesn't like people manhandling his stick. /cough
  • His house in Pittsburgh is cool. He has a POND. I am definitely working that into a fic somewhere.
  • There was a lot of neat stuff about his pre-game routine, cutting and taping his sticks, that kind of thing. I hadn't seen some of that stuff in that much detail before.
  • His wife Anna calls him 'Tiger,' possibly because of his sign in the Chinese astrological calendar. She told him her sign was a mouse, so he started calling her Jerry.
  • A lot of stuff about how private he is, and how he doesn't go out much and spends most of his off time at home.
  • Shots of the players' parking and the door they use to get in, via keycard
  • Geno talking about how shy and lonely and awkward he felt the first couple of years in Pittsburgh, because of the language barrier
  • Geno talking about how serious concussions are, and how he thinks the real issue is people coming back from them too soon. I am not at all used to seeing the average hockey player talking frankly about this stuff.
  • He used to cry after every game he lost, whether it was an important one or not.
  • He had some stuff to say about how important he feels sports are for unifying a country. Not sure I agree with him, but it's certainly the most philosophical I've ever heard a hockey player get about it.

Two fics have I posted this month! First, a wingfic I started a while back for Pens Monthly but couldn't finish in time, which also deals with Geno's rookie season, when Geno was lonely and new and Sid was gearing up to be captain. I usually say I'm not that interested in them as babies anymore, but I feel like those particular angles don't get written that much.

Anyway, some wingfic:

“Well, shit,” Sid said, and walked stiff-legged and careful back into the house.

* I made a comics Tumblr. There's nothing really on it yet. But relatedly, I've started reading comics again, so maybe there will be new content soon.

* I looked through my fic spreadsheet and discovered approximately half the things I've written in the past three years have been for exchanges, and NO FREAKING WONDER I'm feeling a little burned out on exchanges. I keep saying I'm going to do them less, and I keep failing to do fewer of them. But maybe next year. I've turned in my last outstanding assignment (for Trick or Treat!), so that's something, and there's nothing else I'm going to be even tempted to sign up for for several months.

* Feeling more fic-fannish than sports-fannish with hockey right now. I think I'm still recovering from the playoffs. I'm with Sid - I didn't realize how hard it would be to win the Cup. /o\ But meanwhile there's so much fic I want to exist, so I'm working on that.

And I have accidentally written almost 12k for it just in the past two months, oops. But also yay?

Zhenya couldn’t be Sid. He knew better than to try. Abruptly he said, “You want to swim?”

And then Conor Sheary/Brian Dumoulin, aka the fic where I finally write the tiny!alpha/large!omega heat sex fic of my dreams, since I never managed to write that for Jared/Gen. Dubious bonus: I fell head over heels for Brian Dumoulin while writing this, and am devastated to find that there is almost no fic about him.

Over a year ago, I saw a kinkmeme prompt that boiled down to "What if Phil Kessel got outed just after he was traded to the Pens?" I started a fill almost immediately, and have been adding to it off and on ever since, and also going back and revising as real life kept catching up to the events of the fic. (Jossed by reality! *shakes fist*) Finally, in a totally unexpected burst of creativity, I wrote the final third of it in the last week and a half. And here it is.

I'd like to write up some commentary for some of it - at the very least a list of sources for all the random details and references I included. But that's not going to happen right this minute, so in the meantime, have a fic.

I have in the past week said I couldn't write PWPs or poly for exchanges, and then I got this flash fic exchange assignment and proceeded to do both. In three days. For 4300 words.

It has the kind of flaws that a fic is going to have when you write it in three days, but also it engages with RL events and with how I see these people in ways that I don't manage to get at very often in this fandom, and I'm just really freaking pleased with it. It's my favorite thing I've posted so far this year.

Also it's got kinky worldbuilding not really indicated in the tags, if you're into that.

[community profile] smallfandomkinkmeme is a kinkmeme for any fandom small/inactive enough not to have its own going kinkmeme. This includes Buffy, it turns out!

* So I guess the comics experiment is over. I gave up Saga after several arcs I didn't care about + killing off my fave, and meanwhile Marvel is just too big a mess of events, "reboots", creator juggling, and the willful prevention of any kind of character growth and movement. I took Marvel out of the interests in my Tumblr bio today, so I think that makes it official.

* Flower is out with a concussion. I hope he recovers fully and with no long-term effects, however long that takes, although we've had so many different injuries in the last 2-3 months it's hard to feel properly concerned about any one of them any more. Every year, Pens. :( At least we got Dumo back today?

* When I got interested in the Bruins, I said to myself, yay, a new ship that will give me a different dynamic than Sid/Geno. The problem? Marchy and Bergy are even more PDA in their appreciation of each other than Sid and Geno. Brad is not Geno, but otherwise, yep, another ship where they just like each other a lot. Oh well. At least Marchy/Segs breaks that mold - they also like each other, but in a bro way.

Nabbed from many people.

1. Your 3 fanworks with the most AO3 comment threads: Make Yourself at Home (Hockey RPF, Sid/Geno, bowerbird AU), my new most popular fic ever. Three Christmases with Miss Honey (Matilda, Matilda + Miss Hockey), a moderate hit for YT one year that I thought might be my most popular fic until the end of time. Switch Hitter (Hockey RPF, girl!Sid/Geno, D/s AU).

2. Your 3 fanworks with the most kudos: Base Notes (Hockey RPF, Sid/Geno, a/b/o) – my first hockey fic! Make Yourself at Home, again. And finally And in Health (Hockey RPF, Sid/Geno). This fandom has spoiled me for kudos, basically.

3. Your oldest fanwork: A Right Sorry Couple of Vamps (BtVS/Ats, Spike+Darla), written for the Fall Fandom Free-for-All back in 2008.

4. Your latest fanwork: three's a crowd (SPN, Tamara+Sam), a weird, atmospheric little futurefic for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas.

5. Fanwork you are proudest of: ONE fanwork?? How about I just pick one that comes to mind: worn for sleeping (SPN, Jess/Sam), which is moody and creepy and has a twist and says stuff about canon, all in 1100 words. Still super pleased with how that one turned out.

6. Your longest fanwork: Still Seraph (BtVS, Spike+ensemble, mpreg), a 67k fic I finished in 2009. Have never even come close since. But I've got a WIP that might bump up close to it if I can ever finish. /o\

7. Your 3 fanworks with the most bookmarks: Base Notes, Make Yourself at Home, Switch Hitter. Hockey fandom does it again.

8. Your top 3 crossover works: I have no idea how we're measuring this. I write very few crossovers anyway, but here are three I'm fond of: This is the World We Made (BtVS/Dollhouse, Dawn+Topher), the first fic I've managed to write that really gets at how I feel about how freaking badass Dawn Summers would grow up to be. The Very Small Girl and the Monster (BtVS/Firefly, River+Spike), far-future fic for BtVS in which River meets someone who can finally explain who she is. Lift (Firefly/Matilda, River+Matilda), another River-centric crossover that gets a lot of mileage out of her dreams. Probably the crackiest crossover I've ever attempted, in terms of canons crossed.

9. Your favorite characters to portray: I'm going to assume this means "favorite characters to write, in which case Dawn Summers, Illyria, Jo Harvelle, Genevieve Cortese, Geno.

So Geno proposed to people in times of stress. That was fine. Geno’s feelings were ferocious and unwieldy and sometimes just fucking inconvenient, and there wasn’t a guy on the team who hadn’t figured that out within a couple of weeks of being here.

Currently this team and RL are both fairly stressful, and so I have ended up investing most of my feelings about both in Olli Maatta instead. On one hand, this has been a bit traumatic in the last week! On the other hand, it means that I pretty much could not have gotten a better present today, which is Olli getting interviewed by Trevor, intrepid Junior Reporter (Edit: new link.

CHILDREN INTERVIEWING CHILDREN. Seriously, this is a tall awkward child being interviewed by a shorter and somewhat less awkward child. I swear they make some of the same faces. And both so earnest!

And honestly I almost want to make a transcript of the entire thing, because it is so great. Olli went as "an Oktoberfest guy" for Halloween, lederhosen and all! He likes Pittsburgh because it's smaller than NYC and gets quiet in the evenings! He also goes into some detail about his warmup routine before practice (20 mins on bikes and doing calesthenics) and his routine before games (he arrives 2.5 hours before hand to deal with equipment and stuff). He watches a lot of movies and reads a book occasionally.

Basically if you happen to be writing Olli Maatta fic (*cough*), this is GOLDEN while also being charming and adorable. You just want to pinch the cheeks of everyone on the screen. I am SO CHARMED.

I am so sad, you guys. I'm really, really hoping it was less awful than it looked when he was trying and failing to get up off the ice. Latest news is that he was taken to the hospital on a stretcher.

(For context, including video.)

I know I have a bunch of hockey people on here that I don't get to talk to often, and also I feel like I would like some namespace discussion of hockey things.

So, how's your team doing? What good things are you reading? What good things are you writing? What do you wish other people would write (so you don't have to)? Spill!

I wrote two fics for Trick or Treat this year, so not exactly last year's five-treat extravaganza, but I'm pleased with what I did write.

My main assignment was for Pacific Rim, which I'd never written before! I had trouble settling on an idea and fell back on my old standby of picking a concrete object and writing a story around it. This was the result:

It’s at the Shatterdome, they say, and so she goes.



I started several hockey treats and didn't finish any of them, but I eventually decided that for Trick or Treat, this one was close enough to being a story that I would post it anyway. This fic is what happens when you tell me you like body horror, people coming back from the dead, and slice of life fic.

Summary:

Geno settled next to Sid and slanted a glance each way. No one paid much attention. Then he pulled off his left glove and shook it over Sid’s lap, and out of it dropped a finger.

Goals! And Phil! And Bonino for the empty netter that just took the heart out of the Caps, I suspect (although not as much as if Beau's had gone in, too, instead of ringing off the post)! And FLOWER OMG.

Is this the turning point? Oh please, oh please.

This actually makes us 5-1 out of the last six games, which feels wrong. So many of this wins felt like luck and fingernails. But this one we earned. Well, Flower earned, and then some of the goal-scorers helped, too.

A stat: The Penguins have scored 16 goals. That’s the lowest total in franchise history after nine games, one less than the 17 they scored in 1970 and 2003. They’ve allowed 17 goals. That’s also the lowest total in franchise history after nine games, two better than the 19 they gave up in 2009. -- Jonathan Bombulie, Trib Live

Sounds about right.

It's here. I should put a link in the sidebar for finding. Comments for things I should put are much appreciated! (ESPECIALLY WITH LINKS.)

Anyway, a thought I had about it: one of the big things I'm trying to capture with that timeline is the ~narrative, and how it ebbs and flows over time. For me one of the hardest things to figure out when I'm trying to include people from other teams is the emotional and ~narrative context for their team. Have they been doing well? Badly? Someone slumping? Ridic PDO? Starting goalie is fine but working too much because the backup is playing like hot garbage? What's the fanbase excited about? What's it panicking about?

So that's part of what I'm trying to do with the timeline.

(FYI, one of my most successful ways for catching up on that stuff in a hurry is to find a team's year-end posts on SB Nation or some other blog with a strong commenting culture, and reading the comments. It's still biased towards recent events, but you can get a sense of what the fanbase thought of the season as a whole.)

Be better, Pens. Meanwhile my secondary team (because apparently I have one of those now) lost 6-2, geez.

At least we now know that Olli cries at Pokemon, Geno cries at sad endings (because he's "emotional guy" BLESS HIS HEART), and Geno and Gonch diagram plays on walls. ALL is not lost.

I ended up writing three things for this exchange. First was my assignment, second was a pinch hit, and third was a treat, because I sent [personal profile] verity the opening fifty words or so and didn't know what to do with it, and she said, "WRITE IT FOR ME AS A TREAT." And I did.

It’s bad enough that Flower can't talk to people without calling them things like poopy butt. It’s worse that Geno isn’t talking to him at all.


condiments
Jack Johnson/Sidney Crosby, 3.1k, rated M, h/c.
“I’ve got some time.” Sid’s voice buzzed a little. Too many satellite connections between Jack and Prague, probably. “I want to get some work started at the house, so I’ll be around for a week or so. You should come.”


Silver Medal Baby

"You not even win gold! We had loser sex."

Hilary did not point out that at least she medaled. If one of them was going to get knocked up at the Olympics, obviously it would be Geno.

All the wonderful fics are here!

I've got three fics in the exchange, so feel free to guess which ones are mine! One of them is a gimme, though. Like, it is the most obviously snick-fic that has ever ficced.

A while back I started a Pens 2015-2016 timeline project, which I've now decided to take the flock off of. The goal is to make a timeline of all the news/major events for the Pens in one place for future reference. Things that count as news: games, injury reports, roster transactions, cute photos on Instagram, Sidney Crosby documentaries. Things that don't count as news (unless I happen to feel like it): interviews and profile pieces of players, analysis, speculation.

So if you happen to notice me failing to link to any of those things and feel like dropping me a link, PLEASE DO. I'm going to be tracking stuff I want to link to on my Pinboard, but crowdsourcing this would make it so much better.

And, obviously, feel free to use for your own fic reference. That's what it's there for. :)

* This week has been Death by Sidney Crosby. First we have all the Tim Horton's ad footage with him and Mackinnon, and then we get 23 glorious minutes of In the Room-type coverage of his hockey school and his hometown. There's so much genuine smiling and giggling in these! It makes me so happy! Also I feel they pretty thoroughly disprove Sidney Crosby: Hockey Vulcan. Like, he may or may not be a goofy weirdo (she says with love), but he clearly is also a guy who has fun and friends and who enjoys people.

* From the preseason games this week we learn:
- Kessel/Crosby/Malkin/Letang can really do some damage vs another team's JV squad. Which isn't to say I wasn't COMPLETELY DELIGHTED by goals from Olli and Phil (TWO OF THEM) and other people.
- I'm not sure if Geno has any goals yet in the preheason, but he has been a beast on the ice nonetheless. I mean.
- OTOH, this team w/out Letang, Maatta, Crosby, and Kessel is kind of unfortunate. Especially those D-guys. STAY HEALTHY, KIDS.
