How It Works:

Post to your blog with a list of ten things you want to receive for the holidays. They can be anything, from a personalized DW/LJ icon or drabble to a purebred puppy - as long as all the items on the list are things that you genuinely want.

If there's anything on your list that needs to come to you through the mail, make your shipping address available, but please be safe about it and don't post that part publicly - just specify how people should go about getting it. PM or email me at


Look around your circle/dashboard/friends list for others who have posted the meme. (The more who do, the better this works, so encourage them!) If you see a wish you can grant, GO FOR IT. You might find a little thing you can do for free that will make someone happy, or you might just discover that a stranger is longing for the exact boxed set of DVDs that you no longer want.

Don't spend money unless you want to, and don't commit to more than you can handle without stressing yourself. There are no rules to this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. If someone surprises you with a gift certificate to the restaurant you never thought you'd get to go to, don't feel guilty or obliged to return the favor. The point is to spread around a lot of opportunities to grant wishes - use them as you see fit, and remember that your list gives those opportunities to others!


Dream big, but stay practical. If you really want the Mercedes, put the Mercedes on the list, but don't forget that you also really want some feedback on the story you wrote - so put that on the list too. It's fun to imagine something huge happening through this meme, but we'll recognizes the unlikelihood of it and make sure our friends still have a chance to do something thoughtful that's within their means.

Put limits on yourself for what, but not who: if you've decided that you can spend a few hours drawing a picture, but none of your friends are asking for one, keep looking for wishlists - you might even make a new friend or two! Ask people to link their lists for you, and don't be afraid to post your own in a few places.

Let's make some wishes come true this year!

My Wishlist 2016

Pipe Dream

1. This glorious teamaker: And yes, it really is $250 no matter where you buy it. :headdesk:

2. This wonderful book on historical linguistics that costs an arm and a leg: I've started peeking at it in Google books, and yes, I want it, I want it, I want it.

3. Typography software: There's TypeTool, Font Creator, and Fontographer that are all supposed to be good. I'm not picky.

More Feasible

4. Art of my fic, not necessarily covers but actual illustrations. I drool over other people's and always wished I wrote well enough to inspire someone.

5. More tea-related goodness, on the go infusion! Just check out these bottles: I like tea, okay?

Actually Reasonable

6. A Yuletide treat in one of my super tiny fandoms: I love drabbles. It doesn't have to be big.

7. Postcards or letters would be so, so awesome! PM or email me at for the address.

8. Original fiction! I love, love, love all my flists's writings and I love, love, love getting to read their original stuff if they happen to have any. I really, really do.

9. Poetry recs. Syllabic poetry. Classic poetry. Something nice and new that isn't especially erotic or inaccessible. I like free verse when it's not too abstract. Adore metaphor. A book of stuff by Billy Collins would be wonderful, but there's just so much poetry I love. I just want to try more.

Feel free to link your own wishlists! Some stuff might be late (I overbooked my end of year, as always), but I would love to shower gifts on as many of you as I can. :D

I'm seriously considering signing up for [ profile] marvel_bang, which I shouldn't, since I've never finished a fandom bang and probably shouldn't. It does not put food on the table and I've got my hands full with Safe.

scribblemyname: (apply fanfic?)
To be specific, brother stuff. Good stuff. Between Loki and Thor. Don't mind angst (oughta be a given), but I'm hoping for some real connections here.

Anybody seen this fanfic?
scribblemyname: (fiction: coup)
From [ profile] likeadeuce:

Give me one of my stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future (after the end of the story), or sometime in the past (before the story started), and I'll write you at least a hundred words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.

scribblemyname: (under the weather)
I've been sick. More sick than I've ever been but once in my life. I'm probably going to be dropping most, if not all, of fandom creating for a few weeks while I try to yank my life back into some sort of order. Not much writing. Today, I'm curled up with potato soup, internet reads, and an ex-employer phone call hanging over my head.

Read "Models" by Kris Rusch
Haunting, tragic, and yet such an important message too

Am catching up on Starwalker
Love this feisty little ship!
scribblemyname: (happy: raven/erik)
Yep. I am. Daily Science Fiction is a professional market that pays a whopping 8 cents per word and tagged a PS on their form e-reject that said, "This one was an almost." I danced. I whooped. This was a barely edited draft that I can now see how to improve and on a whim, I sent it to the best-paying market for the story that seemed a good fit and they almost published it. Happy me.

On a fandom note, I got two gorgeous stocking stuffer fics:

By [ profile] in_the_blue, Erntedankfest
(The Uncanny X-Men, featuring Kurt Wagner & Kitty Pryde)

By [ profile] vialethe, Life Is Changing [one] and [two]
Pairings: Colin/Sara, Mary/Dickon, Mary/Colin (one-sided)
a/n: This prompt ran away with me in a big way! It's meant to be set a good ten years after both books, I'd think.

Also, accidentally defaulted on a beta chapter due to sickness, temp job woes, and aunt in the hospital, but hopefully this next week will be a wee less hectic, yeah? :sends prayerful thought heavenward:

On the other penname note, sold a copy of a Christmas short story I put online Friday. More dancing and jubilation. I'm just happy today. :grins:
scribblemyname: (cassidy freeman)
but I prompted, so here goes:

from [ profile] arliddian:

The first five people to comment get to post a prompt that I will use to write a fic. In return, they post this challenge into their journal and write fics for whoever responds, no matter the level of experience or ability.

Feel free to get creative with my fandoms or pairings. Just no slash please.

1. X-Men Movieverse - Rogue/Gambit - dancing | [ profile] whipsy
scribblemyname: (scribbles)
Meme from [ profile] likeadeuce:

I will post the names of all the files in my WIP folder, regardless of how non-descriptive or ridiculous. Choose one (ish), and I will post a random line or two.

I have multiple WIP folders, but here goes on ONE. My older one that I still drop stuff into all the time.

[I cheated.]
scribblemyname: (genius: hank/raven)
And a dangerous meme it is! From [ profile] stormkpr:

Comment with a link to your fanfiction list and I will pick seven of your summaries to snark at/comment upon. Then post this to your LJ and share the love.
scribblemyname: (crossover fic)
Gacked from [ profile] trovia:

Pick one of my icons and I'll write you a ficlet based on said icon. If you choose a stock/text only icon, feel free to choose a fandom or characters you think I might know.

A lot of my text only are from a fandom: Divergent, but I'll take swapping or crossover.
scribblemyname: (genius: hank/raven)
Memery from [ profile] whipsy:

1. Give me a pairing (DCU, Marvel, ATLA, FNL, BSG, True Blood, crossovers welcome!)
3. I'll write you a drabble or ficlet based on the scenario.

Told you RECS were coming soon.

So I rec La Femme Nikita, X-Men, Andromeda, and Roswell at [ profile] more_to_fic. I promise to do more of the X-subfandoms next time. I've just been keeping head above water recently. :shakes head at self:

So, I'll play more catch-up soon. I've got some betas to do, stories to edit/post, and a couple of comms to convince I haven't abandoned. Ah, well. 'Tis life.
scribblemyname: (consider me awed)
The awesomest article on reality in a superhero universe ever.

I know I've said it over and over, what's with all these mutants thinking the only paths available are terrorism or vigilantism? Makes me want to pull together Rehab, but I'm having trouble with the research and cast selection.
scribblemyname: (raining story and song)
So it isn't perfect, but it's started, my original fic site for the Liana Mir pen name (image is link):

:claps hands excitedly: It'll get there.

Banner by [info]schwarze_elster.

Fic. Great, isn’t it? Fan writers can take your favourite characters and make you laugh, cry or make you feel a little funny in the… No wait! Fic doesn’t always have to be about NC-17, full on, sexiness, does it? No! But sometimes it can be hard to find fics that can be romantic, fun or sad without all that X-rated grinding.

There’s [info]more_to_fic than that!

[info]more_to_fic aims to compile a list of great fic recs from a wide range of fandoms which are about the characters and not their sex lives. So come over and celebrate friendship, great plots, action/adventure, humour, romance that stops outside the bedroom door!

scribblemyname: (linkage: tango)
If you are female, you need to read this post by Justine Musk.

"A strategic woman, a powerful woman, is a brilliantly disruptive woman.

She’s dangerous."

"A powerful man falls into the category of powerful men.

A powerful woman creates (still!) her own category.

She is by her very nature a challenger and a rebel.

She has to defy the ingrained gender norms which encourage a woman to be good…but not great.

To be bright…but not brilliant.

To be creative…but not disruptive or innovative.

To play the game…but not to change it.

To play by the rules…instead of shifting the battlefield, to where she can make new rules."
