Oh my God, I finally finished a fic!!

(This is the one I've been working on since I was preparing to test Pre-Bronze. It's been my little coping mechanism through three Moves tests now.)

Playing by the Rules (7405 words) by icepixie

Characters: Douglas Dorsey, Kate Moseley, Anton Pamchenko
Additional Tags: Ice Skating
Summary:

Before Kate and Doug get anywhere near Nationals, Doug has to qualify by passing the US Figure Skating Association's many skating skills tests. It's a bumpy road for both of them.

"I can do crossovers in my sleep. Why the hell do I need to take a test on them?"

"Is just formality," Anton said from the side of the ice. "You have to qualify to compete."

"Who came up with that?"

"Someone very smart, I would think," Kate said loftily. "After all, without the tests, just anybody could walk on the ice and make a fool of themselves at competitions."

Summary:

"Jack Thompson, if you don't kiss me properly in the next five seconds, I believe I shall go quite mad."

For a long moment, Jack wondered if the last several minutes had all been a strange, frustrating dream that was finally taking a turn for satisfaction, but then Peggy muttered, "Do I have to do everything myself?" before she leaned forward, grabbed his collar, and kissed him.

[This time, Peggy befuddles Jack.]

Summary:

"How'd you do it? What does it take to stay married for twenty-five years?" From 1994 to 1969, McMurphy and Richard figure it out as they go along. Backwards structure stolen with love from the season three episode "Holly's Choice." A post-series AU where Richard never got the call from Boston in "I Could Have Danced All Night...But Didn't."

icepixie: ([China Beach] McMurphy Richard kiss)
While my China Beach epic is in its second round of beta, this came to me. I guess you could say McMurphy and Richard get an angry warrior moment. Also a "but with great composure" moment that I stole shamelessly from Cordelia's Honor.

"You really think it's wise to keep insulting your transportation like this?"

"Oh, forgive me. I meant to say how wonderful it is to have a big, strong man such as yourself to carry me out of this tight spot."

The best part about Peggy needing him for once was that it didn't even make her pause before she kept right on mouthing off.

I actually sort of get why Thompson took all the credit in the Agent Carter finale. Doesn't mean I have to live with it. (And I guess I just felt a need to rehabilitate this tool? IDK.)

This has certainly been a successful vacation so far. I have:

1. Gotten to a point where I consistently get 2-3 revolutions on a forward scratch spin, and can usually enter it with only a half-revolution on two feet,

2. Finished a complete draft of the angst!fic (uhhh, except for these two scenes that popped into my head last night and insisted they would be good additions, but anyway),

3. Rewatched all of CB S4 and catalogued good/useful shots for vid-making purposes.

I'm off work through the end of the week, so hopefully I can make some headway on revising this angst!fic and on making the first of two vids I have planned.

I thought about doing an end-of-year meme, but really, what is there to say that hasn't already been said here in the past twelve months? 2014 threw a lot at me, from a promotion at work to a nasty series of health problems to my first foray into private skating lessons. (It's hard to believe I only switched from group classes to privates in February. It feels like much longer.)

Admittedly, many of the health dramas were of my own making, because I decided that 30 was the year I was going to fix myself and clear up all the nagging problems that had been plaguing me for decades. So the laparascopic surgery was on me, the allergy shots (and thus reactions) were on me, and in some respects the giant hemorrhaging episode was on me, since I did request bc that did a better job managing my endo (though I don't think I should be held accountable for the antibiotic interactions that screwed things up). Bronchitis and one ER visit were totally not my fault, though.

May 2015 bring you all good health and great joys.

I wrote a thing! A thing I actually put on the interwebs, unlike all the other writing I've done this year!

"I was in a bar, and the jukebox started playing 'The Gal That Got Away.' It made me think of you." He started walking toward her, crossing the ward in deliberate steps. "And then I thought, the hell with that!"

Sometimes you just gotta have a happy ending.

You guuuuuuys, for [community profile] fandom_stocking, I got a ficlet set in my Closet Idealism universe! [personal profile] azarsuerte married off Sofie and David, which seems very fitting. Hee.

I got some other lovely things too--some cool art and many greetings.

I failed a bit at production and only wrote a little Fraser/Thatcher kidfic ficlet:

Battle Plan
Summary: "Have you got the supplies?" Meg asked.

Fraser held up a toothbrush, a stuffed wolf, and a collection of cardboard books with titles like The Pokey Little Puppy and The Dandelion's Tale.

In other news, I have my favorite instructor again for regular skating class this session. I plan to ask her to be my coach once this session is over, though I know she's applying to medical schools so she may not be taking new students (or may be gone in six months even if she is). But even six months would be nice! My class is again a combined Gamma/Delta thing with me and a couple of girls. This time they're at least young teenagers, which I think will make things go a little more smoothly. The really little kids just don't quite have the attention span to really get deep into anything, so last session felt a bit schizophrenic as we bounced from jumps to turns to MITF in one thirty-minute class.

Anyway, one class and already I have two pieces of advice to make my wretched inside three turns much less wretched. YAY.

To what I assume will be no one's surprise, I wrote The Cutting Edge fic for Yuletide.

It's, um, actually the only fic I've completed this year, minus a tiny thing for [community profile] fandom_stocking. This has definitely been the year of the not!drawerfic. But I had a good time writing it, and my recip appears to have enjoyed it, so: success!

Summary: She thought about Del's words all the way home from the hot dog stand. He'd said that she and Richard spoke the same language, something private between just them, composed of references and jokes and ideas that made outsiders of everyone else. It was true, she realized; of all her friends, Richard was the only one who gave a damn when she mentioned that there was a new Dutch Renaissance exhibit at the Met, or who cared when a book on Fantin-Latour came out.

icepixie: ([Movies] Myrna Loy as a blonde)
Because sometimes you just need to write a missing scene for a 75-year-old movie almost no one still alive has seen, you know? (P.S. It's Myrna Loy and William Powell being cute and awesome, so you should watch it!)

This also fulfills the "being silly" square on my Cotton Candy Bingo card.

I don't even know, y'all. Despite the fact that I sort of think Maggie and Joel are the last people on Earth who should reproduce, this came to me and wouldn't leave me alone.

Fandom stockings have been revealed, and I got amazing things! I received a podfic of a lovely Northern Exposure story, some nifty photos from Rouleau, Saskatchewan (aka Dog River), a sweet Michael/Fi-centric Burn Notice fic, and IVANOVA/GARIBALDI FIC OMG OMG!

This year, I didn't write as much as I hoped to, but I did write three things. All are rated G and under 1,000 words.

due South
Glad Spirits - Meg meets her father-in-law for the first time. I guess it could be set in the same AU as "Down the Rabbit Hole," although it doesn't have to be. Fraser/Thatcher.

DS9
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart) - "The thing is, she thinks when Julian hits on her yet again at their weekly breakfast together, part of her would like to say yes." My first Bashir/Jadzia Dax fic in...twelve years? Thirteen? It's been over a decade, anyway. Baby's first OTP! The e.e. cummings title may be a fandom cliche by now, but I swear it's relevant.

Fringe
A Very Good Year - Happy birthday to Astrid. Teamy, fluffy S2-era gen.
icepixie: "All the Queen's Horses." Lyrics misquoted from The Innocence Mission. ([DS] Fraser/Thatcher train joy)
Title: Increments

This Gray Spirit Yearning
Snow Day
Increments
Sine Qua Non

Perhaps we should take this in increments. )

Since there's no new episode tonight (wah!), have a fic. :)


Title: Double Exposure
Rating: G
Word Count: 2,200
Summary: "The memories are fading, as Walter said they would." Speculation on how the two timelines might eventually be resolved, mostly in regards to Olivia, Nina, and that bombshell they dropped on us in "Subject 9."

She feels a little like Alice in Wonderland, most days. )
