Day 03

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


A Moment's Wimsey [1/1 | 856 words | G]
Archer's Goon/Lord Peter Wimsey

Given time and experience (and an able manservant) he'll be immaculate, no doubt, but just now he has hair a little too long and coat sleeves a fraction too short as though they were designed with someone else entirely in mind. It's just different enough to be interesting, to set the mind whirling with stories, and a musician is only half songs. The remaining is the legend that grows up around him.

The area in which I've always excelled is drabbles and ficlets, if only because I can finish and post them before my wiggling worms of self-doubt can root themselves underneath the idea and turf it out. I have always been able to make unlikely things work in a very few words, and they are most often the things that wear well, too.

Becca gave me this pairing once, in a long-ago prompt meme, and I have always loved and been proud of the result.


World Without End [1/1 | 12,760 words | G]
Good Omens, Aziraphale/Crowley

'Home' was always one of those subjective words, of course.

Good Omens had to be included, of course, because it was my first real sticking place. I don't think I'll ever leave it, it's just such a wonderful thing. This is one of my longer stories - yes, 12,000 is long for me, isn't it painful - and I felt it hung together rather well. It had something that resembled an actual plot, and didn't just mush two characters together because I thought they ought to be mushed.

(If you like it, I'm also quite proud of Castles in the Sand and Sherbert Holmes and the Elephant of Surprise.)


Since I mentioned two others above I'm going to cheat a little and rec something original.

Piracy in the UK [1,000 words, G]

‘course, they weren’t naturals straight away. That’s not to be expected. They almost lost Devon in the first storm set to ‘em, and there’s not a man Maniah knows hasn’t lost someone to the sea, but he figures that for bargaining of a sort. Paying their passage in the oldest way, two pennies, two daughters, an eldest son for the ferryman. It’s best, he thinks, that he never married.

The best stories are the ideas that I'm too scared to write. Always.

Ask me aboout the John Sheppard soulmark fic, sometime
