Trek Fic: Of Dogs and Kids

I wonned something! I posted a 1000-word fic for the DW FandomWeekly comm's writing challenge #023, with the prompt "Inner Children". There was also a bonus for including a pet or companion animal.

And I gotted first place! I'm so excited!

Anyway, here's a link to the fic over at AO3.

Theme Prompt: #023 - Inner Child
Title: Of Dogs and Kids
Fandom: Star Trek Alternate Original Series (Movies)
Pairing/Relationships: James Kirk & Leonard McCoy, gennish but could be read as slash or pre-slash if you want.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13 for references to offscreen animal cruelty and for naughty words. No spoilers.
Word Count: around 1100 - the fic I posted on the challenge comm was 1000 words exactly but I had to add a few more sentences when I posted to AO3, because of course I did.
Summary: Where before, there had been two to beam up – he and Jim were the last ones to return from the away mission – now there were four on the transporter pad.

Trek Fic: Into Shadows

So I wroted another fic. I'mma start linking to my fics on AO3 instead of posting them both places. Hope you (the two of you who are still here!) enjoy.

Into Shadows (1500 words) by skyblue_reverie
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Star Trek: Alternate Original Series (Movies)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: James T. Kirk & Leonard "Bones" McCoy, Leonard "Bones" McCoy/Christopher Pike
Characters: James T. Kirk, Christopher Pike, Spock (mentioned)
Additional Tags: Fix-It, Established Relationship, Male Friendship, Bones was at the bar with Jim dammit, And they're not stupid

How Into Darkness should have gone. This part – the beginning. There were no words of comfort Leonard could offer, but there was something he needed to say. “Jim, wherever you get posted, I’m going to request reassignment there too.”

Disclaimer: Any resemblance to anything whatsoever is purely coincidental.
A/N : This is the first fic I've written in far too long, and I owe infinite thanks and love to ennui_blue_lite for handholding and suggestions and general wonderfulness. Credit also owed to some of the lovely lj commenters (particularly wemblee, and an anonymouse) back on the previous sections of the series, for awesome suggestions! I really appreciate comments - they make my day and I treasure each one and respond to them all. I'm kind of a feedback whore. Just so you know. ♥

Previous parts:
Part 1 (a.k.a. Lost for Words)
Part 2 (a.k.a. Kobayashi Maru, Part 2: Ahab's Quest)
Part 3
Part 4
Part 5-ish, sorta. One Time The Moby Chronicles Met Jim Kirk's Massive Cock... In Jail. Birthday crack for therumjournals combining her MASSIVE!COCK!JIM series with my MASSIVE!COCK!BONES series.

The series over on AO3

Is there anybody out there?

So, hi! Geez, I've been away for fandom for a few years (actually, holy hell, like 8 years) and it all goes and moves on me. I think LJ is pretty dead but just in case there's anyone there who remembers me and/or feels like chatting, I wanted to post here, just in case.

I got a tumblr, because apparently that's where all the cool kids hang out nowadays. I still haven't figured out what I'm doing with it (except to reblog infeasibly hot photos of Karl Urban - in other words, photos of Karl Urban), so any tips, suggestions, links to tutorials, etc., would be helpful, especially related to how to navigate/interact with fandom on tumblr. Anyway, friendings and hellos over there are also appreciated: https://blueskyreverie.tumblr.com/.

I wroted a fic, which I've posted on AO3, but I'm also going to post it here, just because I've always done it that way, damnit, and I don't like change. :p

Anyway, I'll stop now, and see if this gets anything more than crickets.

So, um, hi. *shuffles foot diffidently*

I'm dreadfully ashamed that it's been so long since I've posted. It's been even longer than that since I've been writing or even reading in fandom. I just... lost my mojo, I guess.

Anyway, I decided it was time to reconnect. I don't have my mojo back, I haven't written a word of fiction in months, maybe even over a year? But I've missed you, and I've missed fandom, and writing, and being a part of this community. So... here I am.

On the personal front, since I last posted, I've gotten a full time job (I was formerly self-employed) but I'm kind of miserable and want to be self-employed again, but doing something else. That's one of the things I'll probably be posting about for a while. Ideas/encouragement always welcome.

I also got a divorce - it was a long time coming, though it was an incredibly hard decision. No one in my family has ever gotten divorced. No one. EVER. So it was kind of hard to come to terms with the fact that I needed to. And I did need to. I am so much happier now. I mean, I couldn't have even imagined how much freer and more content I would be after I left a marriage that had become, if not toxic, at least... stifling.

Now I'm a single mom, though, and b/c the ex is still trying to get on his feet, I have 100% custody - he visits with the kiddo for a few hours on Saturday. This is hard on my son, and it's also hard on me - much as I love my child, being the sole custodian of a small child while also holding a full time job and trying to maintain my sanity is daunting, to say the least. I'm dating an awesome guy now, and he helps out, but still. Free time is limited, and my energy to do anything after work and parenting duties, almost nil. I haven't even seen the new Star Trek movie!!

So anyway, hopefully will be posting more now, and getting back to commenting on others' posts, even if not writing fic again (yet) myself.

Those of you who have written me personal messages and/or comments that I have not responded to, please accept my abject apologies. I will try to do better going forward.

Trek Fic: Cut Us Another Slice (TTOMT Part 53, Pike/McCoy, NC-17)

Hi guys:

Well, a sad announcement - I'm going to be pulling out of To Talk of Many Things. I've just got too much going on in my RL, and the fic is starting to feel like an obligation instead of a joy, and writing shouldn't be like that, y'know? It's supposed to be my happy place, not another source of stress.

Anyway, I wanted to thank you all for coming on the ride so far and say sorry for leaving!

But - mga1999 might be persuaded to continue, if she had a new co-writer. She doesn't want to take it all on by herself (don't blame her!) but if anyone out there is interested, PM her or drop a comment here. And hey, maybe the show will go on after all!

Anyway, without further ado, here's the (for now) final part:

Title: Cut Us Another Slice (Part 53 of To Talk of Many Things)
Author: skyblue_reverie, mga1999
Fandom & Pairing: Star Trek Reboot (aka AOS, ST XI, etc.), Pike/McCoy
Rating: NC-17
Spoilers: None
Warnings: Light BDSM
Word Count: Around 2700
Summary: The further correspondence of... well, everyone, basically.
A/N: Thanks so much for all your support through this adventure!
