Hi, and Welcome!

This journal is in hibernation. I still read and reply to comments, but all my new fic is now on AO3 and on AO3 only. I hope I'll see you there!

Just a quick note on me, and how I run my LJ:

All stories I post are open to the public. I breezed past age restrictions without even blinking when I was underage, and I don't expect anyone else to be deterred by a notification, so read the pairings and ratings and you won't get any nasty surprises.
Plus, finding a story online that looked really great and not being able to read it because I am "not authorized to view this restricted entry" just pisses me off.

If you're old enough to be on the internet, you're old enough to find the back button.

Friend me! I friend back everyone. I might even show up at your journal once in a blue moon. I don't post anything here but fic, so if you friend me, I'm assuming you liked what you read and that's why you're here. If you actually are/want to be a friend, come and kick me and I'll get back to you.

Also, if I sound pissy, it's because I've been dealing with demanding, complicated people all week. It's not because of you. I like you. :)

Annual Body Count

Hey, folks, we made it into 2013. :D

In 2012, I wrote two (2) stories for SPN RPS, one (1) for j2_everafter and one (1) for spn_j2_bigbang, killing two (2) and turning four (4) people into household appliances; word counts are 6,241 and 35,329, respectively, for a grand total of 41,570 words.

I wrote one (1) Adam Lambert RPS/Bandom story (new fandom :D) of 53,367 words for werewolfbigbang, mauling one (1), and another Bandom story for bandombigbang at 12,243 words, killing one (1). Which makes the total of Bandom+ words 65,610.

Sooooo: Killed: 3. Words: 107,180. Still better odds than winning the lottery.

On a side note, I might stop posting to this journal. It seems like most of my readers prefer AO3 anyway, and so do I, so that might be coming up. Just a heads up. Until then - trucker on.

King of the Pumpkin Patch - Masterpost

Title: King of the Pumpkin Patch

Warnings: None, really.
Notes: AU! Inspired vaguely by Nightmare Before Christmas. Yeah, I know. Just go with it.

Beta'd by the amazing stella_lost. Thank you, darling!

piratekitten made an amazing fanmix which can be found here. It's an amazing soundtrack to this fic - I highly recommend downloading it and listening to it while you read.

And many thanks to the mods at bandombigbang for all the hard work. It's truly appreciated!

Summary: Ryan, with his tailored suits and spindly fingers, has been King of the Pumpkin Patch for as long as he can remember. He sleeps underneath the briar patch, he smokes his pipe with his friends, and he watches the sun set every night, without fail. But everything changes when the Boy moves into the Old Lady's house. With Brendon's parents dead set on destroying everything Ryan's ever known, Ryan has no choice but to challenge Brendon to a duel to determine the next King of the Pumpkin Patch.

Warnings: Minor character death, mentions of drug use (plus mentions of het pairings, if that bothers you).
I'm sorry to say that this fic will probably be my last hurrah in the Supernatural/Supernatural RPF fandom. I suppose it's only fair, therefore, that this was possibly the most painful thing I've ever written, and while I'm reasonably proud of the way it's turned out, I am so very glad it's over and done with.

I could not have finished this story without the help of my lovely beta a_dreamwithin who vastly improves everything I write and deals with my insecure whining on top of it all, and my cheerleader/brainstorming-buddy/emotional crutch stella_lost who never lets me give up, no matter how much I want to.

Also thanks to pinkmonkeybird who - misunderstandings aside - created the most gorgeous art for me. Go check it out!

And last but not least, thanks so very much to the mods over at spn_j2_bigbang who deal with this year after year (after year).

Summary:Twisting hazel, wailing carnations, camouflage trilliums, skittering vines - to Jensen, sequestered in his flower shop, his plants are his best friends and constant companions. They see him through his tentative friendships with his customers, rival flower shop owner Mark's attempts to sabotage him, and even his hopeless crush on local university student Jared who comes in every couple of days to buy flowers for his girl.

But even they can't help him when Jensen has to use the plant that killed his mother to catch Mark in the act - no, that responsibility falls solely to Jared.
