Fic Updates (multiple)

Right, okay, so. I utterly and completely fail at keeping you all updated about my fic. Hopefully those of you with AO3 accounts have subbed to my username there; if not, might I suggest it?

If you don't have an AO3 account and would like an invite, let me know - I'm sure I have a bunch. Or at least, like, one or two.

So, have some fic. All links lead to AO3.

Rating: Explicit
Summary: To one place Eris drew them all, the fearful Battle-queen,
beheld of none, but cloaked in clouds blood-raining:
on she stalked swelling the mighty roar of battle,
now rushed through Troy's squadrons,
through Akhaia's now;
Phobos and Deimos still waited on her steps to make their father's sister glorious.
From small to huge that Fury's stature grew;
her arms of adamant were blood-besprent,
the deadly lance she brandished reached the sky.
Earth quaked beneath her feet:
dread blasts of fire flamed from her mouth:
her voice pealed thunder-like kindling strong men.
Swift closed the fronts of fight drawn by a dread Power to the mighty work.

When a tiny drop enters into the ocean, we cannot trace the drop. It becomes the mighty ocean.

So, this started out as a sort of self-indulgent crackfic, as encouraged and abetted by [personal profile] secondalto and [personal profile] citymusings. It's turned into a sort of long-term exercise in self-indulgence that I like to poke when I'm in a mood or place to write, but I don't have the time or the mental capacity to work on anything more serious. Expect lots of cuteness and awws and feels of the happy fuzzy bunny type.

Also, I am accepting non-shippy prompts for this 'verse. If you have a prompt, leave it in the comments on AO3. :)

DO NOT expect regular updates for this story. I have several scenes already written, but this is NOT a regular sort of fic and I don't expect or want it to become one. This is self-indulgent play.

Anybody wanna like me on Facebook?

(Crossposted from my regular journal, apologies to those who see this twice.)

I'm in the process of creating a "platform" for my new novel-writing identity, and I could use all the support I can get. If anyone would be interested, please:

Like my new Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/JB-Kaye/589567714422318)

Follow me on Twitter (https://twitter.com/jbkaye13)

Subscribe to my blog (http://jbkaye.blogspot.com/)

I'll be posting some excerpts from the book soon; I'm working on chapter 19 now, so I'm very close to being done, and super excited about it. This is basically my life's dream, and I would love to have your support as I embark on it. So, in advance,

Been a long time, eh?

I actually have a bit of an announcement to make. Hopefully one or two of you will be excited about this.

Long, long ago, I wrote a story called The Floods Cannot Drown It. It was an NCIS AU, Kate/Gibbs in a medieval fantasy setting. A few of you expressed some appreciation for this story, and when it was over, I promised a sequel.

Well, I am here to announce that I am in the process of writing that sequel. I am, in fact, over 27,000 words into that sequel. It is currently just over 62 pages long in Word, and I am at the start of chapter seven.

When I finish this sequel, I will post a preview of it here for everyone to see, but the full, novel-length text will be available for purchase through Amazon (self-publishing) as an e-book.

If you have questions, I will be happy to address them, and I hope that you will be as excited to see this book as I am to be writing it.

Taking prompts

I haven't written in awhile, and I want to write, but I don't know what to write. So here's the rules:

Leave a ONE WORD PROMPT in a comment. I will write a fic off the first THREE prompts. If there are more than three, I will write a second fic off the second three, and so on.

ONE PROMPT PER PERSON.

Also, I'm not sure which fandom(s) I'll write it for, or what rating I'll end up with. It's a grab bag. You might get Castle, you might get NCIS. Hell, you might get Buffy, or a crossover or something. You might get PG, you might get smut. Could be anything.

:D

And yes, you can leave prompts as LJ comments. I'll link you to the Dreamwidth entry when I post.

Time to say goodbye, I think.

(The following text is applicable only if you are reading it on LiveJournal.)

I got a notification a couple of days ago that the paid time for this account is about to expire.

After heavy consideration, I have decided two things.

1) I am not going to renew this account's paid status.

2) I am not going to continue to crosspost fanfiction to this account.

It seems like every time I turn around, there's some new craziness going on at LJ (R88, etc.) that just makes it more and more obvious that our New Russian Overlords are actively anti-community and anti-fandom, and that bothers me. It also bothers me that they are sticking advertisements on everything they can possibly stick advertisements on, which means that when my account reverts to unpaid, they'll be sticking advertisements on my fanfic. I'm not okay with that.

Loyalty to LJ means nothing, and I have been extremely loyal - I have a permanent personal account, and this account has been paid by the year since 2006. That's over $300 (not including extra userpics, etc) of hard-earned money that I have paid to a company that actively despises me and wants me gone.

Why should I therefore remain somewhere that I'm not wanted, and pay for the privilege?

So. As of now, I will no longer be crossposting any of my fanfiction to LiveJournal, and within the next few days I will be locking down the LJ version of this journal to private.

All of my fic will continue to be publicly available at Dreamwidth.

I will continue to post fic notifications to LJ communities like [community profile] castle_fic until the rest of fandom wises up and moves as well (or is forcibly kicked out, which frankly I can see coming). But the fic itself will now be hosted solely on Dreamwidth (or, occasionally, ff.net).

If this causes you a problem, or for some strange reason leaves you unable to read and enjoy my fic, then I deeply apologize. Unfortunately, I'm not going to change my mind. I have to stand up for my principles in this situation, and that's what I intend to do.

I would like to extend an invitation to you. If you are reading this on LJ and have not tried DW, or have not tried it recently, I invite you to come over. Give DW a try. I know that in some quarters it has a reputation for LJ-bashing; that's really quit. And DW is a wonderful, warm, welcoming (and lots of other nice w- words) place to be. It's a place that understands, respects and appreciates fandom in all its infinite varieties. Come and friend me there. My usernames are the same - xdawnfirex and xdawnfirex-fic. Give it a try. I think you might find it to be a happy, safe new home. I know that I have.
