Sunday's Once Upon a Time cracked the shell of its heteronormativity, how about that. One can criticize the who, the how, the how much, and the what now, but they did do it, and that's pretty great.

*chants in appropriate military fashion:* This is my Loki/Clint non-con fic. There are many like it but this one is mine.

Title: Corruption and Crème Brûleé
Pairing: Loki/Clint Barton
Word count ~6,000
Summary: Loki finds that Agent Barton is peerless. In all things. For a mortal. Which is unforgivable.
Warnings/Enticements: Mind Control rape, i.e., non-consensual smut with dubious consent flavors. Coded as both non-con and dub-con for different reader values of both.
A/N: From the moment Loki grabbed Hawkeye's wrist six minutes into the film, I knew I had a new fandom. And that I'd be writing this scenario.
Thanks to [ profile] fabularasa and [ profile] cluegirl for most excellent and speedy beta duty.

Anyone seen this commercial? Many reasons to love it:

Not just the implication that "naughty librarian" is something she finds an entertaining, sexually empowering concept, but that the commercial let both a man and a woman confirm the "Get 'em" in turned-on breathlessness. Beautiful. (And it's funny!)

Yuletide reveals!

I discovered who created my Yuletide gifts! [ profile] fyrie wrote my Mulan-Aladdin crossover, [ profile] twistedchick wrote my 1776 Adams/Franklin, and [ profile] _hannelore wrote my Rapunzel/Little Mermaid! You guys are wonderful. Thank you all again for a fabulous Yuletide!

So imma gonna reveal my own Yuletide fic and meta on it for a minute.

Title: Deuxième Appendice (Second Appendix)
Fandom: Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Dangerous Liaisons) by Choderlos de Laclos
Pairing: The Vicomte de Valmont/The Chevalier Danceny (with background canon pairings)
Summary: An additional collection of letters reveals that the conquests of the Vicomte de Valmont were not confined to the ladies of the controversy.
Words: ~7,000

I wrote for Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Dangerous Liaisons) by de Laclos, which you probably know has been done in multiple movie versions (and put John Malkovich on the hot badboys actor map). But if you've read the original material, you'll know the book is epistolary. The recipient, v_v_lala, was asking for Valmont/Danceny slash, which made me think the obvious response was to write all the letters that revealed that particular relationship. And the entire thing was written in my head at that moment, really; it was just a matter of getting it down on paper. Which is what all the cackling was about.

I knew that the story was going to appeal to a limited audience because that sort of lofty, 18th-century-fake-letter-writing-style-in-translation would not be everybody's cup of tea, but the opportunity to imitate that style was like a dam bursting. Not just delight but relief. The sick thing is, I nearly write like this every day, in work emails. No, really. I have to rein myself in when I begin to type, "What is wanted by the parties requesting these concessions is our receptive ear," and then I sob and backspace the whole thing and instead type, "The people who say they want these things really just want to know we're listening to them." Which, yeah, may be better writing but it makes me sad that the English language is as rich as it is and I don't get to play with it in the way it deserves.

So, anyway, I got to play with it for this story. You'll either like that sort of thing or not. If you do happen to like the style in the book of Les Liaisons Dangereuses, check out my fic.

My yuletide gift is so amazing I'm blushing. I saw The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly this year for the first time and fell under its spell, and all I could say about my slashvibe fantasies was that I wanted credible slashfic between The Good and The Ugly, but couldn't write it myself, couldn't go there. But someone did, for me, did it in all its NC-17 in-character glory. Oh, thank you, thank you, anonymous, thank you ever so much. It's exactly what I would have written if I could, right down the viewpoint (Tuco's), tense (present), and story length (perfectly setup/smut/denouement, no sludgy bits at ALL.)

If anyone else is keen go read Nothing Personal, Tuco/Blondie, about 2500 words of glorious hot western smut.

(Eee, I got young Clint Eastwood slash! --or, as the S.O. says to me in witness of my glee, "So, you do feel lucky, punk?")

You've got no excuse. You all saw Top Gun--well, okay, some of you younger ones haven't, but you sure as hell have heard "Danger Zone" and "Take My Breath Away" thirty thousand times on the retro station, and you all want to read [ profile] fabularasa's exquisite Top Gun slashfic, 25,000 words and just packed with yummy yummy angst/romance manlove in the way Fabula does it so beautifully. Stop worrying that it's going to make you want to mullet your hair and just go read. The 80s command you!

*smacks head*

Good news: Starfighter has been updated!

Bad news: I FORGOT ABOUT IT WHEN YULETIDE NOMS CAME AROUND. And it didn't make the list from anyone else either. Arrrgh.

From the trailer, I wanted rather badly to see this film:

...and then I learned the one on the right is not a boy. Now I'm no longer interested.

Migod, could I get any more shallow.

After Kuroshitsuji ep 20, [ profile] nimori said, "Now I want a fic where Sebastian systematically takes out the rest of the cast, and, and, y'know, pretty much any bystander that looks at Ciel for more than 2 seconds."

Title: Dance With Me
Author: Amanuensis
Summary: Sebastian has learned jealousy.
Rating: PG-13 for violence
A/N: Spoilers for the anime of Kuroshitsuji up to and including episode 20. Warnings for (lots of) character death. About 1500 words.

Lady Elizabeth is the next. )

Yuletide was so good to me, in multiple ways--I was assigned Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo to write and I was given it as giftfic, too. And I really wanted to write Count/Albert in this fandom and with my recipient's request I was able to write just what I wanted as well, so, I was happy even before I got my own giftfic. Which turned out to be more Gankutsuou of the sort I wanted to read--one of those "subtext made text from beginning to end" pieces--but couldn't quite write myself. So much thanks to [ profile] hpstrangelove! And a lovely bonus mood ficlet of the same characters, too, from [ profile] mithrigil!

I'd also asked for and volunteered to write Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler) and did end up writing a ficlet for someone's request, plus there was a Sebastian/Ciel piece (Lucid Dreaming) written that exactly met my own desires in characters, style, and delicious perversity.

Stories wut I wrote:

Fandom: Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo
Pairing: The Count/Albert
Rating: Soft NC-17
Words: ~3300
Summary: Albert is in love. That's all he knows and all that matters.
A/N: If you know The Count of Monte Cristo in any form, you should find this accessible, as Gankutsuou is the same story, names and all, set in the future.

Fandom: Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler)
Little Sir Hugh
Characters: Madame Red, Ciel, Sebastian, Grell
Rating: PG
Words: ~700
Summary: "She sat him on a golden chair, she gave him sugar sweet/ She lay him on a dressing board and stabbed him like a sheep."
Lyrics to the Steeleye Span cover of the ballad Little Sir Hugh can be found here.
A/N: The idea of this ballad pastiche--a lady in monochrome, threatening harm to a noble young boy--came to me while watching the anime, and when WhiteCat asked for something about Madame Red I sat down and wrote it.

If the slash lovers miss the most recent xkcd, you'll only have yourselves to blame. Go look; I'm not reposting it here because otherwise you'll miss the mouseover caption.

Look, I adored his character of Lt. Gaeta on Battlestar Galactica even before I learned Alessandro Juliani is also the English voice actor of L in Death Note, so my squee over Gaeta's revealed bisexuality is only a little shallow, okay? ONLY THAT SHALLOW.

Well, maybe a little extra shallow. &hearts

Summary: Ten years after.
Categories: Drama/Angst

Spoilers for the whole damn series, natch.

Happiness can be defined as lounging on the futon watching one's favorite yaoi smut DVD (Boku no Sexual Harrassment) while opening suggestive online greeting cards from boyfriend (the dear boy composed Light/L roleplay just for me!), browsing a new-found slash gallery (CountxAlbert) on DeviantArt, reviewing a friend's rough draft artfest (Snarry Games) submission, while chocolate/peanut butter ice cream cake waits for one in the kitchen. It's been a good day.
