I've got 34 one-shots and 22 multi-chapter fics in the Forever Knight-verse, I've got 44 one-shots pending for the twispitefic comm, I have 3 other fanfic novel(la)s in the works, and I've got 18 original fiction pieces and 7 non-fiction pieces jumping on me like a pack of Jack Russell fucking Terriers.
Yeah, that's 128 things for me to finish writing. Good thing most of them are short pieces!
The plot bunnies have obviously overwhelmed me, hence the handy-dandy list and joining up to onedeadplotbunny for warm fuzzies. I need all the help I can get taking these suckers down.
( The list of plot-bunny doom! )
I'll be adding to this list if I find any strays needing some rounding up (either in my harddrive or among my papers). But what's here is currently all the stuff parked in my yWriter and in my FanFiction folder.
Of course, if I'm too exhausted after Nano, then... well, no signup. We'll see.
I will be writing the fic in this year's NaNo. I've also given it a real name: Between Two Lands. (Its working title was Beneath the Eye of Ra, which is just cumbersome.)
Netauri (aka Natalie, as the Blind Seer of the temple of Amaunet) has been extraordinarily patient with me. And Nikolaos is angsting, like usual, and flashbacking to the Trojan War (the latter of which totally blindsided me, BTW). Netauri also insisted Nik seek out her brother's home at the beginning of the story, instead of her temple like I had originally planned.
Yeah, I haven't even started the actual story yet, and Netauri's already taking charge and being pleasantly bossy (especially with our hero). She's already all kinds of awesome.
I had tried to start it Jan of last year, when I first got the plot bunny, but I was hit by personal/health issues not long after. So, yay for catching up on my projects!
Also: I recently watched Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Pt. 2, and I got to the scene of new-vamp!Bella screaming at Jacob for imprinting on Nessie (basically perving on their newborn baby, whatever the fans might say).
The first thing that popped in my head? How Nick and a newly-vamped Nat would react if a werewolf imprinted on their baby. ( Cut for Breaking Dawn 2 spoilers and FK squee. )
I'm still working on my Ancient Egyptian AU (remember it?) I currently have 29 pages of hand-written notes! 29! I haven't even gotten started on the Greek soldiers, Alexander the Great, and planning out the scenes of the epic battles. (I have to know how to properly dress Ancient-Greek!Nick... partly so I can give him a nice, much-needed bath later).
...I know what you're thinking, now, because I said that. It won't be a PWP, I promise.
I'm also slowly hacking through my fanfic reading list, so... yeah. *cheesy thumbs up*
ETA: Y U BE EATIN MY WORDS NAO, DW?
And I discovered that I didn't comment on any of the fics during the 2011 'fest. Including the one that had been written for me.
Yeah... I got nothin'.
So, I've downloaded the 2011 'fest fics that were 'ported over to the AO3 to my Kindle. So, now I have no excuse not to re-read and (eventually) comment.
Also: Holy crap, my fic for this year was first out the gate! (Or second, whatevs. Point is, it was out on Day 1 of the Big Reveal. That is so awesome.)
It was a "no tools required" thing, but I still worked up a sweat with all the twisting pieces together. And I had to use the grip end of a hairbrush to hammer in the "insert caps." (No tools, my ass!)
But it's complete and together. Finally.
I managed to have room on the shelves for about half of my book collection. I would've had more room if the bookends weren't so wide but, given that they were on clearance for $1.50 each (and I had gone to three other stores before finding them at the K-Mart), I can't really afford to be picky. So, still a yay for getting rid of the crappy old shelving, and having fewer boxes of books clogging up the middle of my room.
I still have two big tubs of books to go through. Maybe I can convince my mom to get me another bookshelf just like the new one, so I can move the shelves to flank my TV cart. Hmmm...
Anyway, on the fannish front, I received my fkficfest prompts. brightknightie, you know my fangirly heart so well. :) I'm excited about the possibilities within these prompts (and the gen prompt particularly piqued my interest), so I'm mulling over some ideas as to how they all might work. Nothing's solid yet, but I'm sure I'll have the germinations of a plot by the end of the month. *rubs hands together with a mad scientist's glee*
I am so looking forward to this 'Fest! I just know it's gonna rock!
