red line overload

Notes: For the "danger" square of my 2011 [community profile] kink_bingo card. Thank you to [personal profile] samjohnsson for expert beta and knowledge of important things. No particular episode attachment or spoilers; think general season one. And also, porn.

It makes you want to fuck, and when you can't fuck, you find a way to fuck shit up instead. )

secretly a reef rat
by templemarker

Notes: This story came from [livejournal.com profile] loverly's prompt on [info]inception_kink for an Inception/Hawaii 5-0 crossover, "Arthur is Steve's brother." I genuinely thought, when I answered this prompt, that it was going to be an amusing one-off crossover that would take me an afternoon to write. 27,000 words later, I was clearly, flatly wrong.

Having been written on the kink meme, there were many--many!--tense shifts. I have tried to correct most of them, but I may not have gotten them all. Apologies for such errors. Thank you so much to all the folks that followed along and expressed their joy on the kink meme; and to [personal profile] pandarus for helping me to clean it up a bit for posting outside the meme. Special thanks to [livejournal.com profile] chaoticallyclev for the lovely banner. To all the people I pimped into Hawaii 5-0 through this story: you're welcome.

Additional notes included here; I suggest reading them after this story. This story may also be read on LJ, DW, and my archive. If you would prefer to download it as a pdf, click here.

They were working a simple bait-and-extract, pulling corporate espionage on one company and feeding it to a competitor, when Arthur got a phone call.  )

Notes as of April 3, 2011:

Okay, first of all, when I started this prompt I thought, "Ha, that's great, I can run that off in an hour, la la la!"

It didn't quite go like that. )

Thanks for playing along. <3

Man, Remix #9 came at essentially the height of job-related stress for me this year, and I'm a little shocked to find I survived it!

I received the truly lovely A Slow Pan (The Scene-by-Scene Remix) by [livejournal.com profile] prettykitty_aya, which was a remix of a Brendon/Shane ficlet I wrote ages ago, why you gotta work so hard, baby.

When I was first migrating to this journal, I wasn't really sure what I was going to write--bandom had kind of faded from my heart despite my affection for it, and Generation Kill nor the STXI reboot had taken root for me yet. So I noodled around with a handful of ficlets that I figured no one would ever read, but they were good exercises without committing to a full story. And then I wrote smoke stupid cigarettes and drink stupid wine, which was kind of it for me in terms of original creative thought for bandom (i.e. not challenges).

To have [livejournal.com profile] prettykitty_aya take something I'd all but forgotten about and transform it into this truly creative remixed work was humbling. I went back and re-read the original story and was surprised at how much it conveyed about my perception of Brendon/Shane at the time; and A Slow Pan (The Scene-by-Scene Remix) investigates that fully, in what I might imagine Shane's inner narration might be. So, thank you. I loved this, this little jump back in time for me.

And, in the circular nature of contracting fandoms mixed with nostalgia, I wrote for [livejournal.com profile] prettykitty_aya as well! I took the author's very first bandom story, Precarious, and retold it from Jon's point of view. It's funny to think about what 2006 was like, five years later--so much has changed, so many fundamental things have changed. It was a real lightness to go back to the beginning and think about what it must have been like for Jon to first have this opportunity--this chance to live a dream (and meet someone who would change your life) before anything fell out the way it did. I hope I served the story well. Precarious (The Inverted Precipice Remix)

My second story for remix was [personal profile] waketosleep's delightfully hilarious Random Acts of Gayness, a Hawaii 5-0 story where Steve...is not Steve. [personal profile] waketosleep had so many awesome H50 stories to choose from, and as it's a fandom that has suckered me thoroughly, it wasn't easy to choose! But I enjoyed the opportunity to do a story from Steve's point of view, seeing as Danny comes much more easily to me. Read the original, and then read the remix! Random Acts of Gayness (The Impersonator Mambo Redub)

And with remix and Inception re:bb over I feel like I can finally take a breath. At least, until Femslash gets under way.

dear the internet, by which I mean inception and hawaii 5-0 fandoms (but mostly inception):

I have somehow, today, managed to finished secretly a reef rat, the improbable kinda epic self-indulgence inception/hawaii 5-0 fusion where Arthur is Steve McGarrett's brother.

I have, honestly, no idea how this happened. How 27,000 words of this happened.

Anyway, if you're not a fan of the WIP, you can read it in all 50 mostly flat threaded parts here.

I'll repost it in full after beta. I have somehow managed to quell my regret at the flippant title. You can find a handful of author's notes here with handy dandy visual references.

thank you all for the comments and joy. love, me.

And NOW: on to [info]i_reversebang. APRIL 17TH, YOU ARE COMING AT ME SO FAST.

Also Remix is only three weeks away, and I have no idea what I'm going to remix. (This happens every year.)

Malama Pono
by templemarker

Notes: Written for entwashian in Yuletide 2010, who wanted Chin gen. Reposted here to dovetail with my other H50 fiction. Thanks to Tiriel for beta.

But now he had some of his respect back. He had people he trusted watching his six, and hell, just having Kono in his life again would have been enough. )

fake boyfriends | totally married | woke up married | danny's ties

This, okay, this is now a cliche bingo, even though [info]cliche_bingo is not active right now and I don't have a card or anything. I just have, you know, an [livejournal.com profile] angelgazing and a roulette wheel of cliches and an propensity to chat spam the former with the latter.

The delightful [livejournal.com profile] chaoticallyclev is totally the BAMFy-est artist ever, because she made me this brilliant graphic for my not-cliche-bingo. Thank you so much! And now, on to our third not-a-bingo-square: woke up married.

til the net breaks
by templemarker

Notes: With endless thanks to the above; thank you to H50 fandom for being so awesome and welcoming. P.S. Sorry for the angst.

The familiar sound of waves breaking against the shore roused Danny from sleep. He tried to open his eyes and flinched from the sunlight, burying his face back into his pillow. A moment later, he tried again, bringing his left hand up to his face to scrub at his eyes. When his hand touched his face, he froze. There was metal on his finger.  )

Madre de dios, I have managed to pull out another section of secretly a reef rat. I was telling [livejournal.com profile] angelgazing today that, after the last update, I've reached the part in the story where I loathe everything and think it all sucks and why did I start doing this in the first place, which is pretty much the most bummer part of writing an inexplicably long story. If you can press through--and rest assured, I think I can, if I can just get my shit together--you can get back your mojo and finish the damn thing. But it's such a different experience doing this on the kink meme, as a WIP (what was I thinking), where people are actually tracking what you're doing and your lack of updates rather exposes your insecurities to your audience in progress.

It's weird, is what I'm saying, and I just so desperately want to finish.

Also, what is up, The Social Network fandom? I did not expect to enjoy you have as much as I have done in the last week. Eduardo Saverin, how are you real.

Though--with the RPS for TSN--it is fucking weird reading about Justin Timberlake in fanfiction again, as a veteran of popslash. And not just reading his character, but watching ten or eleven years of detailed, fandom-specific fanon/canon have little to no relevance to the major pairings and canon of TSN RPS. It's something of a mindfuck, for real. It almost--almost--makes me want to write TSN RPS just to stretch those atrophied popslash muscles once again.

Also, I kind of want to write a TSN/SGA fusion. I have no idea where that one came from.

fake boyfriends | totally married | woke up married | danny's ties

scenes from nuptials in progress
by templemarker

Notes: So "totally married" is a logical progression from fake boyfriends, right? This isn't a sequel--consider it more an alternate interpretation of the facts. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] angelgazing for being inspiration, cheerleader, and beta all rolled into one.

'Babe, did you get the macaroni for the project?' Danny asked absently, threading a finger through his half-Windsor, loosening it a bit.  )
templemarker: star trek tos: spock with a red mask on (red makes him feel pretty)
So, I'm not really used to the whole kink meme thing--the closest I've ever come is the Porn Battle, which doesn't involve threading or anonymity or captcha or whatever. But [info]inception_kink is so, like, inspiring? And awesome? So I've tried to figure it out--that's where comme une fl├Ęche and Conversation Piece came from, but they were one-shots and I didn't post 'em anon.

Anyway, this is my long-winded way of saying that I'm writing a WIP (first time I've ever posted a WIP!) on [info]inception_kink (first time I've ever posted more than a random comment!) that's a crossover between Inception and Hawaii 5-0 (so many firsts oh my god) from the prompt "Arthur is Steve's brother."

You can read it here: secretly a reef rat.

Rest assured I'll repost it once it's finished, not that I have a clue when that will be. And god I need a beta who's familiar with these fandoms.

In Hawaii 5-0 fandom, I also wrote Malama Pono, for Yuletide, which is a Chin backstory fic. And in Inception...I've almost finished a notebook with all the ideas for Inception I've had, but somehow I got suckered into writing 7000 words of punchy crossover fic to use all the witty lines I have in my head for Eames.
