I keep meaning to post but I seem to spend all my time doing life admin and I spent half of August ill. At some point I will post about my washing machine saga. Most people don't take four weeks to go from buying a washing machine to having a washing machine, but I managed to.

I did write two fics.

One I found when sorting out my hard drive. I'd written a whole first draft back in March and was under 1000 words, so it didn't take long to edit. I ended up with Banned Books, an Ian/Barbara fic.

And then there was Remix, which I was determined to do this year as I didn't do it last year. Having recently watched Star Trek 2009 I put it down as one of my offers. And I very handily got someone who has written stuff that's good but isn't really my thing. Which is perfect for remix, because I decide generally what it's about and go off and write something that is my thing. In theory.

The first draft I wrote was 2100 words (or 21 kittens, since Written Kitten helped me with those words). And was a sequel. Which should have been obvious while I was writing it, because I kept stopping to check details.

My first idea had been to go epistolary, but discarded it because I didn't think I could make it interesting. But I decided to try it anyway and discovered that it would make an extremely dull fic.

Part of the problem was that the original was Kirk/Bones and I was trying to find a way not to write it. Once I stopped and asked myself why I couldn't write it I found there was no reason. And I also redefined the plot from "Kirk gets given a baby, he wants to keep it" to "Kirk gets given a baby, it comes between him and Bones" which gave me the opportunity to make one big change from the original and then the fic went a lot easier after that.

I ended up with Baby, Baby (Between You and Me), a remix of Engagement by celli.

The two other good things about the fic (aside from how much I love that title) is that when I was casting about for tags to add I discovered "Accidental Baby Acquisition" which is the best tag ever. And also I have a square on gen prompt bingo called "Georgia" - the name Kirk gives the baby.

sanguinity remixed Alien Estate (aka the one where Alan tries to sell his house despite aliens interfering) into No. 36 Bannerman Road which features more people discovering why you don't want to live over the road from Sarah Jane Smith.

Yuletide 2018
Tuesday 1st January 2019 12:05 pm

When coming up with what I wanted for Yuletide I hesitated to put The Avengers on it, despite having rewatched some recently and wanting it. My first Yuletide I got an Avengers fic and it was perfectly tailored to what I asked for. I thought what are the chances of getting something like that again? Turns out, the answer is 100%.
Must Be Tuesday (2959 words) by rabidsamfan
Fandom: The Avengers (TV)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Emma Peel, John Steed
Summary: Steed Takes a Fall
Mrs Peel Rises to the Occasion

Then despite being busy I somehow managed to write three fics. The first was Galaxy Quest, which I saw in the tag set, thought maybe I'd like to write that, rewatched it during sign ups, then decided I would like to write it, so offered it. And ended up being assigned it. For some reason it ended up taking four drafts before it got to what I was trying to do with it, but I still really enjoyed writing it. And doing a lot of rewatching.

Summary: Life on the new Galaxy Quest series is better than on the original series. But it's still not good enough for Alexander.

And then I really liked dbskyler's Randall & Hopkirk prompt. I had the beginning in mind for a while, and once I'd written my assignment and had a lot more time at home than I was expecting due to my car not starting, I ended up writing the rest.

I wanted to write Belinda Blinked and I had an idea as to how to start the story. Then we finished book 4 and I realised I could use my start to take it in a slightly different direction. And then it turns out to be harder to write like Rocky than I expected and I just couldn't work in any semi-colons. But I did manage to have Giselle blinking.
