the road that leads to all leads to one

Dear Rare Pair Author,

First of all, thank you so much for offering to write for my fandom! I'm looking forward for what you create!

Secondly, this note will probably be quite short; I'm pretty easy to please.

Thirdl - okay, there is no thirdly. So I'll just jump right in!

I suppose I'll start with the no thank yous:
- Pregnancy/mpreg (huge, huge, huge squick of mine; please try to avoid this at all costs)
- A/B/O dynamics
- Watersports/scat/vomit play
- Writings in first person

And now the I love its:
- Schmoop & fluff
- Slice-of-Life
- First times
- Friends-to-Lovers
- Enemies-to-Friends-to-Lovers

I also enjoy reading AUs, BDSM (as long as it adheres to RACK), darkfic... really anything that is not on my squick list. I'll also gladly read any rating.

Finally, a few ideas with the fandoms:
Hot Fuzz
Nicholas Angel/Danny Butterman
With these two, I'd love a slice-of-life fic: what's Sandford like now post-NWA? Being in a same-sex relationship in a small village? Is the Peace Lily okay? Has Nicholas finally made his way through Danny's video collection (or at least seen Die Hard)?

Justice League/Justice League Unlimited (Cartoons)
Shayera Hol/John Stewart
So, in Unlimited, Shayera learns of Warhawk, their son. How does that affect her relationship with John (who, at that point, was still dating Vixen)? Or maybe a mission in deep space, or sparring in the Watchtower, or monitor duty, or the aftermath of a Big Bad fight?

MASH
Trapper John McIntyre/Hawkeye Pierce
Oh god, these two. My OTP of OTPs. I'd really like to avoid the bastard!Trapper trope, because I swear that this is a love for the ages. I would love anything and everything I can get my hands on.

Master and Commander (All Media Types)
Jack Aubrey/Stephen Maturin
I just. These two. I love them in the books and I love them in the movie. I'd love something with stolen moments for these two, maybe kind of an everyone knows but no one says thing, because, god help them, they'd follow Lucky Jack anywhere.

Night at the Museum
Jedidiah/Octavius
This is probably the best fit of the enemy-to-friend-to-lover trope. Yeah, I know it's probably been overdone and may be slightly cheesy, but what can I say? I'm a sucker for it.

The X-Flies
Dana Scully/Walter Skinner or Fox Mulder/Dana Scully/Walter Skinner
I honestly don't know what draws me to these pairings (plus Fox Mulder/Walter Skinner, but that was a bit too big for this fest), but perhaps its my love of Skinner. He just... cares so damn much, and. Wow, I really don't know. But maybe something within the series, post-case, the three of them decompressing, trying to understand just what the fuck happened.

Of course, if nothing here strikes your fancy, please follow your muse! I know I'll love it!

And as always, thank you!

Summary: “For the last time, John, I’m absolutely fine.”

Rating: PG-13 (language)
Warnings: Descriptions of alcoholism, self-depreciating actions, this fic is really fucking depressing
Summary: if you fuel the addiction, you suckle its disease
Author's notes: I’m writing this as a child of an alcoholic mother, so many aspects of this fic are based in reality (though some liberties have been taken, as I am not an alcoholic myself). Also, please note the disclaimer located here. This is also on AO3. Title and summary from the song The Master & Margarita by The Tea Party.

i'm carved from the chaos and stained by its reprise

gonna pop my pills from a pez dispenser

So I just need to share this.

I'm sick. I've got something called idiopathic intracranial hypertension. This causes chronic daily headaches (not joking about this; I've had a headache since 5 Feb 2011... that's 879 days of the same fucking headache) and horrific migraine attacks that can mimic strokes. I've also got several mental health conditions that require constant monitoring by medical professionals and medication. 

Y'know what I take every day?


image



There's seven prescription medications in those 24 pills. That's not counting the four vitamins I'm out of (two pills each), my birth control pill, my allergy pills that I really only need in the spring and fall (two), or the antibiotic I'm currently taking twice a day for Lyme disease.


If you're adding all this up, that's 37 pills (and I'm not counting over the counter painkillers, the Vicodin I take for my broken ankle, or the three migraine abortive pills I've got, y'know, just in case).


And I house these pills in two of these containers:


image



(with a television remote for handy size control; there's also another, smaller, cuter pill container for my midday pills that I unfortunately left on the bathroom counter)


If I didn't have insurance (which I may end up losing, but that's another story), my eight prescriptions would cost me $2,701.94 every month.


(one of those pills alone is $1,183.99 for a thirty day supply)


With insurance? $172.00


(Thank you, Obama, for the free birth control; you save me $27)


The worst part? I need these pills to function. These medicines keep all my problems to a minimal level. I physically need these to be able to get out of bed and work and cook and type and read. 


I'm so ridiculously fortunate that my little retail job offers near-full-time workers pretty decent health care coverage. If I didn't have insurance, I'd be dead right now. 


I really don't know what the point of this post is. And I know we have huuuuuuuuge problems to fix as a country (like working to get trans people, specifically trans women of color, proper and nondiscriminatory medical care, housing, and jobs), but this is why everyone needs some sort of health coverage, especially if those people work in sectors that don't normally provide insurance (like retail and food service; a dear friend of mine is a store manager at a McDonald's, and his epilepsy is mostly untreated because he can't afford the doctor or medicines).


So yeah.


Edit:

If anyone's curious, this is my super adorable midday pill case that I'm supposed to always carry with me but I accidentally left on the bathroom sink this morning oops

It doubles as a compact mirror =)

Something More For Less

This fic wouldn't exist without the assistance, betaing, and cheerleading of the ever-fabulous [livejournal.com profile] tawg.

Between Past and Present Tense

Title: Between Past and Present Tense
Fandom: Burn Notice
Summary: "But in this career path, relationships and self-identity are not prioritized. While spies are trained to be able to ingratiate themselves with others, fooling strangers is a long way from the honesty and communication that people in relationships tend to expect. Combined with an emotionally stunted bedrock, navigating these waters can be ill-advised at best and downright dangerous at worst, often with little hope of success." And yet, despite everything, Michael Westen finds himself trying anyway.
Notes: Companion mix for the brilliant fic of the same name, written for [livejournal.com profile] queer_bigbang. This mix contains spoilers for said fic as well as pretty much the entirety of Burn Notice.

so why we sitting around here talking about a dog that doesn't exist?

I need ideas. I signed up for a bitty bang at lj's fivetimesbb (2,000 - 5,000 words), since you know my weakness for them five times fics, and I have absolutely no idea what to write.

So gimme your ideas. I've written for MASH, Hot Fuzz, DCAU, and Psych before, but I could throw my hand at another fandom listed in my comms.

Halp pls?
