epershand: Dallon Weekes fights a washing machine monster (Dallon and the monster)

I'm alive, I promise! The last month or so has hit me like a ton of bricks, with the net result that I've been avoiding all but the most superficial forms of social media, and have been using *those* to an extreme degree. (Namely, lots of tweeting from [twitter.com profile] 3pershand, actually using [tumblr.com profile] ars-amatoria after having it unused for a couple of years. Uh, yeah.

But Dreamwidth, honey baby, honey doll, I'm totally back, I'm totally here to be with you.

I'm going to start things light, by sharing some fannish works from the last stretch of time. I was massively creative in late December/early January (and I'm hoping to get that creative energy back between now and when BRBB is due D:) with the following results:

I participated in [livejournal.com profile] bandomstuffsit and it was awesome. I got a really sweet Panic at the Disco university werewolf AU, You Say We Can't Be Perfect by [livejournal.com profile] estei.

And I wrote "Trade Mistakes" [LJ link @ stuffsit] [AO3 link].
It was a really fun story to write. I'd started it ages and ages ago and promptly wrote myself into a corner. After starting down a couple of paths that didn't quite work out for stuffsit (one of which I will eventually turn into the novel it deserves to be), I pulled this out and dusted it off. [personal profile] fifteendozentimes helped me out of the corner, and [personal profile] lierdumoa gave me really helpful last-minute feedback.

I love the body-swap trope so much, and even more than that, I love poking at tropes and weirding them, and I think I did a pretty good job of that here. And it was fun to write something that was all banter and sex and no plot. Who cares how they swapped and how they get back? It's when they're in that state that's the fun part, I swear...

I also posted two stories in the Brendon/Shane/Ian universe that's been living in my head lately:

Take Your Time was a gift for [personal profile] fifteendozentimes, and it's sleepy domestic fluff, probably the fluffiest thing I've ever written. [personal profile] girlpearl was my superbeta. And. AND. [personal profile] fifteendozentimes podficced it and the podfic is awesome and I think sets the mood even better than the story does and I go all *____* every time I listen to it.

I also posted a notfic in the Brendon/Shane/Ian universe that sets up how they got together and establishes the world a bit more. It was the first set of notes I wrote for the universe, and it's sort of fun and silly and cements my newfound habit of writing a piece of pornography about every social media site/tool ever. This one has skype porn; I seriously need to finish up the twitter humiliation kink fic :P

epershand: BLI logo and "we can fix you" (BLI can fix you)
Hi guys,

I have been mostly in hiding from the internet for several days, but during that time I accidentally a fanfiction?


"With Blood They Wash In the Money" (Gen, Korse/Gerard Way)
Crossover: Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys (Album), Anathem - Neal Stephenson
~2k words. General audiences.
When the Daban Urnud made contact, BLI was waiting for them.

Written as a New Years Resolution for [personal profile] tei, combining two of her requests into one story. She asked for backstory on the Second Advent, and she also asked for Korse/Party Poison backstory; I decided that those were two great tastes that would probably go together quite well.

A word on the crossover: Neither of my fabulous betas, [personal profile] oliviacirce or [personal profile] were_duck, had actually read Anathem, so I guess the story works out pretty well without detailed knowledge of that canon (in large part because it exists in a space Stephenson left intentionally blank). Please be warned, however, that the material it covers is hugely spoilery for plot-relevant worldbuilding that happens very late in Anathem.

Link to the story on the AO3
