Reposted for posterity, and because [ profile] heroes_exchange has a bloody age filter. To be honest, I'd rather avoid debate about the effectiveness and purpose of those things - it comes too close to morals for me - but on a purely practical level, it's annoying as hell. And yes, I realize that every system has its flaws, but does it not seem a little ridiculous when the author is locked out of her own fic?

Also, I missed the Sekrit Cabal Ficlet Battle 4.0. I am rather disappointed about this.

Housekeeping: 'twas written on the prompt "ghosts", for [ profile] themollyedge. Title from Secret Garden's "Sleepsong".

Ladies and germs, the Heroes Fic Exchange is over, and I am so much the richer for it, because [ profile] themollyedge wrote me Adam, and Hiro, and Adam/Hiro, and Yaeko (Yaeko!), and it is just beautiful. Or rather, not beautiful but something beyond beauty, because this is a work of art, my friends, this is circles and time-curves and “Hiro,” he says again, and the word holds all the decades of the earth inside its body. And the framework is an E.E. Cummings poem! Oh, read it. Read read read.

Somewhere I Have Never Travelled, by [ profile] themollyedge. Adam/Hiro, others.
Summary: Hiro and Adam have always moved around each other in circles.

Incidentally, through some twist of fate or perhaps moderator, I ended up writing* for [ profile] themollyedge. And it's about Adam and Hiro (and Ando) too! Go figure. It actually made it all the more cooler, once everything was posted and I got my head out of my ass long enough to check if someone had written something for me - d'oh, brain, it's an exchange - because it was like a very, very small Adam-Hiro-Ando-Yaeko fest between the two of us.

Here, if you want to read it, go ahead. But read Moll's first.

with diamonds and pearls at your head and your feet, by [ profile] vanitashaze. Adam/Hiro/Ando, others.
Summary: In the beginning, there is Hiro, and Ando, and across the planet is New York, still as whole and beautiful and fucked up as ever.

*6,580 words in less than a week. What the fuck? I am amazed with myself. And kind of wondering if the world's going to end, now.

1. And ah, the saga of the second dog continues with a great mess of crap on the rug, crap on the floor, and crate-training advice from my English teacher (was weird). What really kills me is that Tess is such an absolute darling, and you can see that it just kills her when she does something wrong. Only, she doesn't know a lot of things are wrong. And so, there is a lot of wrong stuff going on, and damn near nobody's happy.

2. Poe's "Haunted" seems like a very John Sheppardian song. I don't know. Give it a listen. That whole album is pretty brilliant, anyway.

3. You know, it's quite funny. I haven't watched the show since the second season or even given it much thought, lately; in fact, I'm definite in my certainty that Heroes has jumped the shark. Possibly several. Because, wow, bad. But looking back through what I've written - what I continue to write - it seems I'm mostly a Heroes writer. And when I say "mostly", I mean predominately in a big way. And it was my first real fandom, too, the one that actually got me writing and speculating and spinning their lives in my head. I suppose I just can't let go of that, even though these days, the canon bears no resemblance to those characters I loved. (In fact, I've gone so far in my denial as to pretty much create an alternate canon in my head - something that, if you look closely, strings all my stories together into some weird commune future.) And now there's the [ profile] heroes_exchange, and I'm left thinking, didn't I used to really like these characters?

I don't know, you guys. It's weird to have such a big part of me belong to a fandom I don't even like anymore.

4. Meme time!

Anyway, let's start the new year off right; The problem with LJ: we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

More than one question is allowed. I'll answer happily :)

Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you!

So apparently, not only is there a Victoria Pratt in Heroes - long since deceased - there is a real Victoria Pratt, same spelling, that played a guest character on Life.


Speaking of Life, is anyone else kind of confused at the Charlie / Charlie's Ex storyline? They're on again, off again, on again, she says no and it means yes and she has to get back to her husband but she's kissing Charlie in the backseat. I'm starting to think he's been making out with her evil twin, because there's really no other explanation.

Oh my god, you guys, I just made two very important discoveries today:

1. Ray Kowalski is Zero.

2. Thompson is the head of the Gotham mob.

*reels with cross-over*

1. SpikeTV is having a Star Wars marathon this week and oh, George Lucas. Futuristic tupperware, Luke's hair, bad Middle-Eastern stereotypes, the attack!Teddies... SUCH CHEESE, but I can't believe how much I've missed it. And it's so strange, seeing them in order—the knowing that Obi-Wan was once young and strong, who is behind the black suit, "that strange old religion" called the Force... It's all so much more poignant, even with the bad special effects.

...I want my very own Yoda. Like, now.

2. Having listened to my newest Psapp album rather obsessively, I can only concur that if crackfic had a theme song, this would be it. I mean, squeaky toy as percussion instrument? Why not?

3. In other news, Meredith!fic is eating my brain. NOTES EDIT REWRITE EDIT REWRITE. This is going to be my mantra for the next ten million years, I know it. But in the meantime, have some shameless fluff. It really is quite soppy. And, please, excuse my high-school Spanish. (Forsooth, it has come back to haunt me.)

1. If anyone has a few minutes to spare, I would love them forever if they could give their input for this. It's for a good cause, people!

2. First Heroes fanmix, and it's for a character that gets twenty minutes of screentime for the entire two seasons.

...But she is sort of awesome, yes?

1. If you love Life on Mars, are vaguely familiar with Ashes to Ashes and want to distract yourself from the oncoming storm U.S. version, go read [ profile] trinityofone's absolutely fabulous "Nature Boy", found here and here. Yes, it is a WIP and the chapters are long, but it will BLOW YOU OUT OF THE WATER. (Or at least, it did for me.)

2. Icons! Long weekends do have their uses, after all.

(Frankly, I'm amazed at myself lately. I've actually been getting stuff done.)

...Manipulation and locked-door romance, to the vague tune of .6, chain, as in "that which is locked". Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we are presenting: Claire/Elle, the majority of which was written on post-it notes, file folders and taxi cab receipts, seeing as those are the only things I seem to have a large quantity of lying around. Title from Vienna Teng's brilliant song "1 BR / 1 BA" (which this bears absolutely no resemblance to, except if the girls are the 'upstairs neighbors'). Applaud and be warned - especially for any girl-secks within as I am not that talented yet.

ETA: Fucking hell. 4038 words. For me, this is a record. No wonder it took a bleedin' month to write it.

(Oh, I am so in for it. This will go down as the greatest folly of mankind.)

Nevertheless - my prompt table for [ profile] heroes15. Claim: femme, as in all female characters, all the time, both non-paired and femslash/ed. Because even though they are the few and occasionally weepy, Heroes women deserve more loving, don't you agree?

01 Silence. 02 Road. 03 Computer. 04 Ink. 05 Oil.
06 Chain. 07 Language. 08 Wall. 09 Amnesia. 10 Weave.
11 Zoo. 12 Laughter. 13 Choke. 14 Jar. 15 Run.

Take me down, six underground, the ground beneath your feet - laid out low, nowhere to go, nowhere or way to meet... You gotta love the Sneaker Pimps, especially with a name like theirs.

Second of the Adam-fics. In which things actually happen, for once. Title from Bright Eyes' "No One Would Riot for Less". Got lines in here from Jeanette Winterson and Jean Rhys.

Yeah. This is trippy. This is weeeeird. This is self-righteous literary crap and I will get stoned at the public library for plagiarizing something that was obviously written by an aging hippy hooked on anesthesia-gas. In any case read at own risk.

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Peter Pet jumping off another damn roof! Or - oh, wait, it's just vanitashaze messing around with linebreaks and halfway through saying, screw dat. I'm doing this with spacers.

So. Right. The first of the Adam!fics. [Insert something very witty here.]

Due credit owed to Jeanette Winterson, as I think I might have a line of hers in there somewhere simmyschtuff's absolutely fantastic House/Wilson fic 12, 6, 15, 3 for some formatting ideas. (And yes, the unfinished sentences are intentional.)
