25th-Oct-2014 12:12 pm - 2014 Dear Yuletide Author
Hello Author! I am so sorry I was late on this. My life's been hectic lately. Hopefully you got most of what you needed from my prompts, are a procrastinator like me, or forgive easily.

The short and the long of it: I love AUs of any kind, will follow you in any crazy direction you want to go, think more fictional characters should make out in front of me, and am SUPER EXCITED you're writing one of these fandoms for me. I can't read non/dubcon or infidelity. I don't like reading one-sided violence against women, but if she has agency and can fight back I will watch ladies kick ass til the cows come home.

Request 1 by celli
Fandom: Women's Hockey RPF
Shannon Szabados (Women's Hockey RPF)
I'd love to see a story where Shannon is playing for one of the NHL teams - whether it's an AU where she got drafted or a futurefic where she works her way up from the Cottonmouths.

My favorite goalies, if you want to find a BFF/pairing for her: *Corey Crawford, Carey Price, Noora Räty.

Other ideas welcome! Shannon falls in love with an American hockey player (f/f or m/f), forcing them to sneak around because Canada. An AU where she breaks into NASCAR! An interior monologue while she's on the ice!

*I don't want to break Yuletide rules by asking you to focus on the Hawks. She could be a Chicago Wolves or Rockford Ice Hogs player instead, maybe?

I don't have much to add to this. Feel free to bring in any other hockey players you want, and go wild! Or Wild! I trust you.

Request 2 by celli
Fandom: The Thrilling Adventure Hour
Amelia Earhart (TAH)Abby AdamsSummary
Abby and Amelia are my TAH OTP - only a few inches behind Frank and Sadie! I love their pre-mission banter.

Things I'd love to see in a story about them:

* romaaaaance
* friendship!
* Abby coming on a mission
* "crossovers" with other TAH stories
* any other TAH characters of your choice
* Amelia punching "Hitler," a la Captain America
* Amelia on the sidelines while Abby time travels

My squee for this fandom cannot be textually rendered. Some of my other fave TAH characters are Dorothy Parker (SMASH), Jib Janeen, and Sadie Sadie Sadie. Feel free to stick with just the Earhart canon or mix and match at will.

Request 3 by celli
Fandom: Vorkosigan Saga - Lois McMaster Bujold
Cordelia Naismith Vorkosigan
The omnibus of Cordelia's Honor (Shards of Honor and Barrayar) is my favorite of all the books, and they're great books. I would really like to see more stuff written in that part of her life: her experiences in Survey before she meets Aral, more of their time together before she got pregnant, early days with Gregor and/or Miles, her first visit back to Beta.

If none of that resonates with you, just go for: Cordelia being awesome and making everyone around her better.

I am slightly less interested in world-changing AUs here, although still cool. I just...you know, she had to change her style so much, I'd love to see more early!her, before she got so good at it. Anything with Aral or Gregor especially. I missed those bits from the books. :)

Thank you!!!

Just in case you didn't see it in any of the other places I posted it. :)

And just to let you know that I'm not any less myself at 39...last night I stubbed the crap out of one foot and today one toe is super gross bruised. So if anyone needs me I'll be over here icing my toe. Of course.

15th-Jul-2014 10:39 pm - chicagonadians!
I would like to do something to celebrate my 39th birthday, because I like birthdays and the number 39. My actual birthday is a Tues (7/22), so the following weekend makes the most sense.

For those who might want to attend, please let me know* a) if you would prefer the afternoon of the 26th or sometime on the 27th, and b) if HQ Beercade or another Chicago beercade would work for you?

(note: I like but NEVER EXPECT presents, so don't let that keep you away!)

(other things...can keep you away. that's cool. I guess.)

I was gonna do a cut tag with why and how and all that, but...yeah.

1st-Jun-2014 07:47 am - knee rest and Hugos
I am on, not bed rest, but knee rest - my bum knee is doing something seriously wacky, so I'm staying off it as much as possible. I had all these plans for the weekend - catch up on some shows, read as much as possible for the Hugos (the voter packet just came out!), maybe do some writing...and then I laid down for a nap at 2PM and woke up at 5AM. (Which is terrible for poor Batman-cat; he's on a twice a day antibiotic. Sorry bb!)

I promised someone on twitter I'd do DW posts about my Hugo opinions. I'm almost done with the fancast/podcast and fan writer categories. If you haven't seen the ballot, the categories are:

Best Novel
Best Novella
Best Novelette
Best Short Story
Best Related Work
Best Graphic Story
Best Dramatic Presentation (Long and Short Forms)
Best Semiprozine
Best Fanzine
Best Professional Editor (Long and Short Forms)
Best Professional Artist
Best Fan Artist
Best Fan Writer
Best Fancast

...I have some work to do.

18th-May-2014 04:10 pm - Remix fics!
I received:

Good Night and Good Luck (The Beginning of the End Remix) (1871 words) by 2ndA
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Sports Night
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Dan Rydell, Dana Whitaker, Dave (Sports Night), Elliot (Sports Night), Casey McCall, Isaac Jaffe, Natalie Hurley
Summary: Five reasons Dan and Casey closed the show the way they did. (The title makes it sound kind of depressing, but it's not, I promise!)


"...A time when every literate American knew the difference between an iamb and a caesura,"

"That time has passed, Danny."

"Indeed, it has, my friend."

Alongside (the Don't Care if I Never Get Back Remix) (4726 words) by 2ndA
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Sports Night
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Casey McCall/Dan Rydell
Characters: Casey McCall, Dan Rydell, Jeremy Goodwin, Dana Whitaker
Summary: "A trip like this gives you the opportunity to fall in love over and over again: the beauty of an open road, the crack-crack-crack of batting practice, the sheer bliss that is a game-day hot dog..."

Same person! TWO remixes! *glee* And I have SO MANY FEELINGS about the mapfic.

Baseball is one of those sports you can follow like a fan, or just dip into now and then as a casual observer: you can meet it on your own terms, it’ll always be there.

Awesome awesome awesome.


I wrote:

Springtime in Paris (The Carousel of Time Remix) (1351 words) by celli
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Highlander: The Series
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Duncan MacLeod/Tessa Noel
Characters: Richie Ryan, Tessa Noel, Duncan MacLeod
Additional Tags: Remix, Found Families, brief mention of past ugly deaths, Paris (City)
Summary: "Perhaps we should take advantage of this free spring day we've been given," Tessa said.
"Given?" Richie asked. "Like, by the toilet gods?"

A few Remixes ago, hyperfocused wrote a great fic based off a drabble of mine, so I thought I'd try it when I found the original. Writing Richie again was really cool. :)


One Guy that Billy Kissed (The Zeozord IV Remix) (1518 words) by celli
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Power Rangers Zeo
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Billy Cranston/Adam Park
Characters: Billy Cranston, Adam Park
Additional Tags: Remix, First Time
Summary: A hand closed over his, and Billy startled momentarily, then went very still.
"You're still one of us," Adam said.

I plucked #3 from the original five things fic because Billy and Adam are my two favorite characters. So now I have four Power Ranbgers fics, two written 16 years ago and 2 written this year. What's old is new again!

2nd-Apr-2014 02:41 pm - REMIX.
Whee! This is going to be so much fun???on April 16! *g*

If you are my remix author, of course you have only the challenge rules you must follow, but if it would help to see my triggers, likes, and the rest, this letter I wrote for another challenge might come in handy.

Thanks in advance - you are the awesomest. I hope remixing me doesn't make you pull your hair out. :D?

11th-Mar-2014 09:16 pm - WHIPLASH. YOU GUYS.
Yes, when I hit my head I gave myself WHIPLASH.



(still > a concussion.)

DW post: http://celli.dreamwidth.org/1332979.html (comment count unavailable comments)
And then I tried for more optimism and it was "2012 loves me and wants me to be happy"?

And then I staggered into 2013, post-concussed and depressed, and was like...fuck it. YOU DON'T DESERVE A TAG, 2013.

And now, after two months of 2014, I've had a month-long Death Cold. I fell and hit my head again, so that's been like two weeks straight of headaches. And my adorable niece gave me a cold, which I then apparently caught a SECOND cold on top of??? and lost my voice. If it doesn't clear up soon I have to go back in, ugh.

2014: The Year Of Bubblewrap and Vitamin C.

Also happening: vet woes, tax season, work projects, hockeyhockeyhockey, random Leverage bingewatching, occasionally reading through the entire "AU - Regency" tag on AO3 for funsies. Stuff. *g*

How are you all?
