So, I haven't been around much in quite a while.

I've been doing a lot of sewing recently and haven't really been fannish. I decided to go to Anachrocon in 2015 and the theme is Rococo and Revolution so I've been making myself a mini 18th century wardrobe. FYI, 18th century style stays are way more comfortable than Victorian style corsets.

Sooo, Dragon Con is coming up soon on Labor Day weekend. I've met some of you lovely people there in years past. I plan on attending, but my normal roommates have all pretty much bailed on me this year, leaving me holding a room with a non-refundable deposit. I can't afford to loose that money and I also can't afford to stay by myself.

Is anyone planning on attending and might be interested in sharing with me or know of someone that they can recommend that might be interested.

First of all, thank you so much for going to the effort to write a fic for me.

Thanks again for taking the time to write a fic for me. I apologize for not having this letter up before assignments went out. I thought they would go out on the 21st, but it seems they went out early. I hope I didn’t cause you any angst over it.

Last night I had to stop myself from writing cat!fic. Some writers can't resist the baby!fic. Others can't resist the psychic beagle!fic. My downfall is cat fic. Why, yes, I am a cat lady. Why do you ask?

Seriously, I caught myself writing a fic where a group of hardened smugglers and mercenaries go gaga over a space cat. It wasn't even intentional crack either. I seems every fandom that I get into I feel the need to insert a cat.

You know, I had completely forgotten what it was like to have words and stories just flow from me relatively easily. I keep running through notepads at work and never seem to have enough time to transcribe everything at night. It feels really good though frustating because I do have to get work done at work too.

And, of course, the sudden word flow wouldn't be for the unfinished fics I have hanging out there. It's got to be for an obscure pairing with like five fans and very little other fic out there, but I don't care. I'm writing for me and it feels great. I can definitely tell I'm a bit out of practice though. It takes a little more work to put a story together than it used to.

For some reason everytime I hear Lyin' Eyes by The Eagles I imagine scenes Sam and Jack having an affair while Sam's married to Pete. What's wrong with me?

Lately, I've been working on a Star Wars fic. For some reason my brain keeps wanting the characters to say random French things like 'C'est la vie.' What is wrong with me? This never happened when I was writing Earth centered fic.

Oh, goodness. It's been forever since I updated. The last year or so has been really rough and I just haven't had the time or energy to participate in anything at all.

For the first time in ages, I've been feeling fannish about something. I have so missed that first flush of finding a shiny new pairing to fall in love with. But, of course, with my luck it's got to be a rare pairing.

So the fandom is Star Wars. It was my first fandom love, but it became tainted as I'm sure it did for many people. The thing that got me back into it was the news that Timothy Zahn had a new SW book coming out, Scoundrels, which rather like Han, Chewie, and Lando do Ocean's 11. I've always loved Zahn's books so I decided to reread them wil I waited for Scoundrels to come out.

I'd first read the Thrawn Trilogy 20 years ago when I was in middle school. Y'know it's amazing how differently you think about things for being a kid to being a 30something. Back in the day, in addition from loving all the great Han and Leia stuff, I had such a thing for Wedge Antilles. In fact, I wrote my first fan fiction (before I knew what it was) giving Wedge a Mary-Sue girlfriend. This time around, I was all about Talon Karrde. I found myself just skipping around to the Karrde parts. Then going through all the X-Wing books for the Karrde parts. Then the hopeless romantic in me was like "Aw, Karrde, needs a lady friend." Then I start on Zahn's Hand of Thrawn Duology, which I didn't really remember at all. And Lo and Behold, enter Shada D'ukal, badass Mistryl Shadow Guard who takes out whole swoop gangs by herself among other things. Shada and Karrde team up to find some vital information and there's all this "oh, I shouldn't be attracted because we're working together" tension (which seems to be a real button pusher for me). There's even Han teasing Karrde about their thing.

So then I go looking for Shada/Karrde fanfic and sadly it's pretty rare, but there are a handful of really great fics.

Shada/Karrde Fanfic RecsCollapse )

The lack of fic for my new shiney has left me strangely reinvigorated fic wise and I'm working on Shada/Karrde fic myself which seems like it's going to turn out to be pretty long. So if any of you guys have any prompts for me for shorter Shada/Karrde fic, give 'em to me. I need to strike while the iron is hot.
