[ profile] shipswap is running another rarepair fic exchange, with nominations now open.

[ profile] rarewomen is running again this year, with nominations open soon.

[community profile] megexchange is a fic exchange for fic about one Meg Masters, demon. Sign-ups are open here.

I haven't decided which of these I'm going to sign up for, if any. The Meg-centric fest sounds like a great excuse to hone my Meg skills; I wrote that one Meg+Ruby ficlet a while back, and she was a lot of fun to write. And I already nominated a bunch of ships for Ship Swap, so they're there for me to request if I end up participating.

Really, the only exchanges I'm committing myself to this year are [ profile] spnspringfling, because I had a blast last year, and [ profile] spn_j2_xmas, because I wanted to last year and didn't. Next in priority after those would be [ profile] spn_summergen, but we will have to see. I did relatively a lot of exchanges last year and kind of wore myself out.

I'm also already signed up for [ profile] genteensybang (w00t! writer sign-ups close Thursday!) and [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang, and I'd like to do [ profile] spn_reversebang again, because that was really cool last year.

Title: Additional Work by This Artist
Fandom: Buffyverse
Characters / Pairing: pre-Dawn/Ethan
Words / Rating: 1100 words / G
Summary: It's hard to really despise a man who once let you be Xena for a night.

A/N: written for [personal profile] verity for [ profile] shipswap. I was simultaneously delighted and appalled to be assigned Verity in the rare ship exchange. On one hand, I know her likes and dislikes pretty well, and I was thrilled to be writing her a ship we both love with a weird, shifty-eyed love but that I'd never written at length before. OTOH, I had no idea how I was going to keep my assignment secret for two and a half months. Then I ended up visiting her the weekend before the fics were due, so I couldn't even work on it while I was there, because she might ask.

And then she totally didn't ask. At all. Ever. Crisis averted!

Anyway, this is not quite the Dawn/Ethan epic I was hoping to write - and these two crafty, mildly amoral souls deserve epics - but it does go a little way to suggest what I love about their potential dynamic.

Dawn remembers it like this: Buffy came home with a beautiful dress for Halloween, prettier than anything Dawn had ever even seen, much less worn. )

Somehow, I received two fics for [ profile] shipswap. I'm not sure how I lucked into such bounty.

The first is Life Continuing, an Ats Wes/Illyria fic in which things go differently midway through Not Fade Away, with long-last consequences. Really creative plot element introduced there, and also some careful balancing of the God-King/human imbalance, which, we know how I love to see equality achieved in unequal relationships.

Secondly, On the Edge of the Fight, which is SPN fic, Dean/Ellen with bonus implications of Sam/Jo, in which Ellen offers Dean some comfort and he just keeps coming back around. The Ellen-voice here is delicious, and ending will break your heart and heal it back up again, just a little. (I'm going to risk looking silly by calling [ profile] brutti_ma_buoni for this one. Ellen's got an earthy quality to her diction that reminds of nothing so much as that Pamela-and-Missouri fic Brutti wrote a few months back.)

They are both lovely examples of their kind. Go read and tell the anonymous authors how excellent they are!

Also, I have a fic in there somewhere. No prizes, but if you see one that looks like mine, I'd be curious to know. :)

To all the people on my flist who've been meaning to sign up to write rare pairs and, I dunno, forgot, here is your reminder: rare pairs! Sign-ups are here (AO3 account required, I think [ profile] sirvalkyrie could still hook you up if you needed a code to get one), masterlist of ships to request/offer is here, and summary of all the sign-ups so far is here.

A sampling of spiffy ships you could write: Giles/Faith, Dawn/Ethan, Cordelia/Gunn, Faith/Wesley, Sam/Jodie Mills, Ellen/Castiel, Dean/Lydia (the Amazon), Jared/Genevieve (oh please oh please). Plus lots of ships in fandoms farther afield.

Needy fandoms of interest to y'all, ie, ones that have more requests than offers or have requests and at most one offer: Twin Peaks, the new Dr. Who, the old Dr. Who, Parks and Rec, Revenge, SPN RPF, Stargate Atlantis, the Vorkosigan saga, War and Peace (yes, the Tolstoy novel).

You know you want to. *tempts*

Usually with these Dear Author things I am wordy to a fault. This time, though, I just want to say this: I love or am at least intrigued by all these ships, and I would like to see what you would do with them. I have a few general squicks and do-not-wants below, but beyond that my request is this: be true to the story. Write whatever dang story you want to write with whichever of my pairings you choose. Also feel free to include any other characters you like in the background, as family/friends/support/whatever.

Squicks: non-con, dub-con, underage. Also I have a severe squick about power imbalances in relationships; if there are pairings here that would seem to have them (eg Dawn/Ethan), it's because I'm fascinated by the idea of seeing that imbalance leveled.

Do not want: PWP or explicit sex in general. I have no problem with characters in my ships having sex, I just don't need all the details. Teasing hints go a long way with me.

I've copied down my requests below because I'm obsessive like that, but otherwise that's all I've got to tell you. Have fun!

1. Artist claiming is still open over at [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang. If you're interested, you can see all the prompts by joining the comm and then going here (post locked to non-members). If you see a prompt you want, sign up at the artist sign-up post and then claim. There are still intriguing prompts available! And also mine.

EDIT: Mine's claimed now! My self-serving PSA totally worked, you guys. :D

2. Over at [ profile] shipswap (which mod team I have joined! hurrah!) we're looking for online resources for nominated canons. We're especially interested in resources for minor canons, but anything you can point us to - wikis, script databases, legal sources of canon, etc - would be appreciated.

1. First, wearing my het mpreg ficathon mod hat, I must point out that [ profile] lusciousxander has just begun posting her multi-part pregnant Xander fic, an S3-era fic that appears to be a Scooby friendship fic in the classic mode.

2. Meanwhile, [ profile] shipswap, a rare ship fic exchange, has begun accepting nominations. As of now, there are no Jossverse nominations, although I intend to rectify that this afternoon. Also, please note that per the rules, all SPN het ships qualify except Jo/Dean.

3. Instarec: amnesia, by [ profile] desertport, which is a romantic Dean/Lisa poem post-6.21. Given the events of 6.21, I tend to side-eye the romantic aspect, but as a poem this piece is absolutely gorgeous. The central image is striking, wonderfully specific to Lisa, and a really neat bit of possible worldbuilding all in one. Just beautiful. Go read.
