topaz119: (Pike)
Title: Starlit Wave
Fandom: Star Trek Beyond / AOS
Rating: Explicit
Length: ~8400 words
Pairing: Christopher Pike/Jim Kirk
Notes: Since it was pretty obvious that Star Trek Beyond was pretending that Into Darkness didn't actually exist, I decided I could do the same, too. So, yeah, that stuff with Pike in the beginning of the second movie? Nope. Never happened.

Summary: So far as Chris could tell, with the warp capabilities of this particular ship, it was going to take a week and a half to get out to Yorktown, and probably the better part of the remaining half-week to finalize the approach and docking.

That gave him two weeks to figure out what the hell he was doing.

Link (AO3): Starlit Wave

let's see...

1. I'm on the Imzy train--no idea what I'm doing there yet, but I'm topaz119 there, too, and I have a zillion invites if anyone would like one.

2. I have spent a ridiculous amount of time on the phone with Disney World tech support this past week -- as a software development professional, I am qualified to say that they got their Happy Path right (which is what 99.9% of you all will be doing should you ever decide to go & stay there for a while and it's really very nice) but more than half the time we do a trip, we are not on said path and it always takes a call (or 3) to sort things out. At this point, I am officially OVER the Food & Wine trip wrangling and will have Oldest use BabyBoy's Magic Band and FP+ schedule as it looks like BB will not be going and (of course) all of his stuff went through on the first try while Oldest somehow got dropped from the room reservation (which means I can't do his FP reservations for another month.)

(Please don't take this as an indication of oh-this-is-too-hard, because, really, I'm trying to coordinate 16 people across 3 different Disney master accounts with a DVC reservation + a resort package w/the Dining Plan and a mad combination of 1-Day tix, APs & the package tix. Kudos to the people on the phone with me trying to sort it all out.)

I can't wait to do this for NYE. /sarcasm

3. DragonCon is less than a week away! Preliminary schedule planning is in progress and I am on a quest for the spare cell phone batteries. I know I have 4 or 5 of them but they are totally not where I think they should be.

4. We have reached the conclusion that it is time to add a new furkid to our household and have been visiting with local rescue organizations and reviewing websites daily. BB wants a pug, my good-old-boy husband needs him something not-small and yappy, and I, of course, have fallen in love with a Shi-Tzu mix. Please stay tuned for further developments.

5. I wrote something! (points to icon) Well, I'm almost always writing something, so I guess the proper verb is: I finished something! Except, not really? I got Part 1 of 2 done, but it's better than 400 words here and another 200 somewhere else, rinse, repeat with different files the next day.

Anyway! When I went to see Star Trek Beyond, it was pretty clear (at least to me) that they'd mostly just ignored whatever the hell that mess was with Into Darkness, so my brain just skipped right over that one and started in on a sequel to my Kirk/Pike Trek Big Bang, Shining On The Quay, and it got longer and a little more involved than I expected, but there is definitely more to come.

So, yeah, \o/:

Starlit Wave, Kirk/Pike, ~3600 words (so far) of angsty schmoop, roughly summarized as Space!Husbands on R&R--sexy!times to follow.

...and ohhhhhhhh did *that* make me want to ignore ITD even more than I already do and write a Kirk/Pike-on-leave-at-Yorktown sequel to Shining On The Quay.

Also, spoilers, really don't click )

Also, also, I did get more than a little choked up a couple of times, for reals.

monday. ::squints:: oh, time-change monday. no wonder I'm only barely functioning.

Anyway. FinishIt!February! (pretend it's not a third of the way through March, 'k?) I did kinda do the write-every-day thing (though I didn't keep track) and it was relatively successful.

Rounding things up:

  • sunday (past present) === MI4, Hunt/Brandt, timestamp to Love and Other Mission Anomalies, in which there is an encounter with Will's ex and things turn very much NSFW.

  • Hurry Up and Wait === Avengers|MCU, gen-ish Steve, with background Hawkeye/Black Widow, for the prompt five times Steve waited with Clint or Natasha and one time they waited with him, started *and* finished during February, \o/.

  • The Physicist and The Assassin === Avengers|MCU, eventually Bruce/Clint, technically not finished, as this is just Part 1 of 3, but finished enough that I felt okay posting the first chapter and have a pretty good feel for what's happening in the next two.

  • all kinds of guns === Avengers|MCU, Darcy/Clint, timestamp for you need a rock not a rolling stone, where Darcy is seriously less than impressed by this whole being a grown-up thing.

    There was also some meme-age happening, where I threw out a list of my favorite tropes and people picked one and gave me fandoms and/or pairings to go with them. Still working on those (I'm slow; we all knew this) but so far I've got:

  • Steampunk AU|Supernatural|Sam/Dean: Snippet

  • Secretly a virgin|Avengers/MCU|Clint/Natasha: Two comment snippet

  • Historical AU|MI4|Hunt/Brandt: Story summary (I feel like I should actually write this; I came up with a title, which, as everyone who's gotten hit on gchat when I'm scrambling to post something, I never have a title.)

  • Apocalypse fic|Downton Abbey: Part 1/? (serioiusly, this one could turn into total insanity and crack, I just have to figure out how much of canon I want to use, which is to say: yes, finally all caught up now.)

  • Accidental baby acquisition|Avengers/MCU|Steve/Bucky: ficlet

  • Pretending to be dating/married|Star Trek|Jim/Bones: snippet (I actually already had this exact trope/pairing combo started so I happily posted the beginning of that longer story.)

    I'm still working on the prompts y'all left--they make a nice warm-up for other things (or a rage-reducing distraction when things get stupid in RL)--so thank you for your patience! (And if you'd like to see the whole list/leave me a prompt, the original posts are here on LJ and DW.
  • topaz119: (it's the great pumpkin)
    ...or close enough to have cleared out my inbox to call it good and give it a month or so to fill back up (and to give me a chance to fb the SPN/J2 BB writers.) I knew I had a lot, but I didn't really think I'd let it get quite this bad!

    fic and vids from the Avengers, The Mummy, Bourne Legacy, The Unusuals, The Losers, Star Trek, Game of Thrones, and Hawaii Five-0 )

    I'm working my way through the SPN/J2 Big Bangs. These are in no particular order and there are dozens more to get to, but these are some of the ones I read while driving endlessly through the southern US this summer. Most of them are available in single-file d/l's for e-readers. (Actually, I think all of them are, but I won't swear to it...)

    Like the Luggage of Some Departed Traveler, by [livejournal.com profile] britomart_is, art by [livejournal.com profile] marciaelena, Supernatural, Sam/Jess/Dean, NC-17, ~54,000 words === Big Bang AU from Season 1, where the Croatoan virus is only the first of the disasters that strike. Told in turn by Sam, Dean, and Jess. Post-apoc and how, but with canon events woven into the narrative. I loved Jess and the relationship she forges with both Sam and Dean individually and together. The art is gorgeous.

    Seek To Know More, by [larchiveofourown.org profile] chiiyo86, art by [livejournal.com profile] mishaganminion, CWrps, Jared/Jensen, NC-17, ~36,200 words === Big Bang AU where both the Js have abilities/talents – not quite to X-Men scale, but along those lines. Nice world-building, nice plot, nice relationship-building, hot sex--all in all, a fun read.

    Aiming To Shoot You Down, by [archiveofourown.org profile] mistyzero, art by [livejournal.com profile] pretty_patties, CWrps AU, Jensen/Jared, NC-17, ~31,300 words === Jared is a beat cop shot in a drug bust, Jensen is one of the nurses who takes care of him. This is nice and non-angsty--the major conflict comes from them working different shifts (which, if you've ever tried to do that, you'll understand that it's way harder than it looks) but sometimes angst-free is just exactly what you want to read. The art (which is incorporated into the story) is very nice, but NSFW, in some cases quite spectacularly so.

    The Jungle Book, by [archiveofourown.org profile] beadslut and [profile] jenna_thorne, art by [livejournal.com profile] smut_slut, CWRps AU, NC-17, ~41,500 words === Jensen is smart, Jared is badass, Jeff is just plain bad (think the character he played in The Losers, but without a moral compass.) Add in some industrial espionage, a plane crash in the jungle, lots of bullets flying and turn everyone loose. I clicked the link with every intention of downloading this and putting it on my e-reader, but I got sucked in so fast and hard I ended up reading the whole thing on my phone.

    Hearthstone, by [livejournal.com profile] mollyamory, art by [livejournal.com profile] lamapan, CWrps AU, Adult, ~43,000 words === This one... It's sweet without being cloying; it has a happy ending without it being sappy; and I don't know... it just made me very happy. (PDF & AO3 links at the masterpost for your e-reading convenience.)

    We Will Organize Our Children, by [livejournal.com profile] withdiamonds, art by [livejournal.com profile] alchemise, Supernatural, gen, R, ~43,000 words === So. This could be canon. It's Mary, John, and their family, everything that the show sketches, about making a life after you make a deal with a demon, even when you don't know the deal's been made. It's most from John's POV (and I've never read a more stellar John characterization; he's dead-on perfect on the page in all his utterly fucked-up glory) but it's not just about John. It's Dean and Sam and Mary and... the show. Yeah. Canon. (Disclosure: I beta'd this, but honest to God, the only thing I said was, "um, MORE? PLZ!")


    I'm probably the last person in the world to have fallen in love with these, but it's not like you guys don't know I'm perpetually behind in my reading...

    strive seek find yield, by [archiveofourown.org profile] waldorph, Star Trek (2009), Kirk/Spock, NC-17, 68,200 words === You know how sometimes you're in the car for 7 hours straight and you're reading anything and everything just to keep from murdering your beloved spouse and/or your beautiful children before you get to the part of the trip where you've already spent your money (and it's non-refundable so you can't just bail), and then fandom gives something that's so good you totally forget that the NBA draft has been on satellite radio for the last three hours and smile happily at the people who found it so interesting? No? Okay, so if you're ever in that spot, this is absolutely what you want to be reading. Trek Reboot meets Young Victoria and who knew that would work so astonishingly well?

    Not In This Land Alone, by [archiveofourown.org profile] torakowalski, Merlin, Arthur/Merlin, R-ish, 36,400 words === I finished this and thought, well, that was fun. Modern-day AU where Arthur has just inherited the throne and Merlin is working at the palace and they find themselves dodging assassination attempts while they're falling in love.
