When you see this, post a little weensy excerpt from as many random works-in-progress as you can find lying around. Who knows? Maybe inspiration will burst forth and do something, um, inspiration-y.

I wanted to write The Rani drunk.

This is a little self-indulgent, but I think it could have been worse.

It took the Doctor a moment to collect himself. )

A medical-science type person recently advised me to spend more time talking about fannish, geeky stuff. I made her repeat it, so I can only assume she was serious.

Is anybody else ever tempted to write fic in script form?

I keep thinking it would be fun to write six issues from a nonexistent comics series. Nonconsecutive, of course. The first issue would have to be from the Silver Age. Then a couple from the seventies and/or eighties. Each script would have to be accompanied by meta discussing the issue itself, and other stories from the same period of the nonexistent book.

I ran a super-hero role-playing game for about ten years. I could swipe stuff from that, or make up entirely new stuff. The toughest part would be maintaining the simulated tone and making it look like the issues were written by different people.

I keep talking myself out of doing it, for the usual reason I talk myself out of fics: I have huge trouble finishing anything that I can't complete in one setting, because as soon as I sit back and look at something, it becomes clear to me how much it totally sucks.

I was not fond of issue 5 of the Buffy comic.

I read Fantastic Four comics for the trippy stuff. And I don't mean a guy who can set himself on fire but not get hurt. I mean a guy with a tuning fork hat who eats planets. Ultimate Fantastic Four has a mixed track record in this regard. For everything I like about the book (Sue Storm is a biologist and a genius), there's something that really rubs me the wrong way (Reed is, like, four, but he still knows everything.)

I'm going to have to keep getting the book, though, because I read Fantastic Four comics for the trippy factor.

Spoilery. )

There is a famous statement that the planet Saturn is lighter than water- that it would float if you could find a basin big enough. There's a poster of it doing just that. When I think about how impossibly huge that ocean has to be, it scares the hell out of me. (I'm not kidding.)

To really get the trippy factor out of that situation, though, you'd have to figure out which parts of the physics to deliberately ignore, and which parts to discuss. Like, even if you somehow transported Saturn into a (shudder) really big ocean, it wouldn't stay all nice and planet-shaped unless something would make it do that. Many of the moons aren't light enough to float. So now we have Titan, sinking like the rock that it is, and Io sending out a gush of steam big enough to engulf the Earth as the too-big ocean puts it out like an ember...

If I had a TARDIS, I would totally watch the sun expand, especially if it were going to do it super-quickly.

There is no way in hell I'm going to be able to get 22 fics, each with a beginning, middle and end, out of this premise. So this will be an abbreviated "season" of things.

I'm going to be more or less forced to write about some Forn Parts to which I have never been. If I make a risible error, please tell me.

Relics part 2 )

This little subsection was going to be longer, but I have a doctor thing. I'm not in love with these phone conversation scenes...

This is a Buffy/Angel crossover fic, set after Not Fade Away. I intend it to be part of a huge series. It cannot be reconciled with the Season Eight comics. The series is intended to be structured like a season of one of the shows, in that the formal plot skeleton is action-adventure. It is tagged "alpha" because I'm not sure where I'm going with it and reserve the right to revise in the future. It is a sequel to my previous fics "Come the Revolution" and "Perfect Day."

Comments? I'm not too proud to beg...

More fic...

Posting fic feels creepy, but I can't stop myself.

The title is from a Lou Reed song, and if I were a different person I would have just vidded it instead. My favorite version of the song is actually a duet between Kirsty MacColl and Evan Dando.

I guess this is AU, because it makes some assumptions that will become obvious upon reading it.

Perfect Day )

If you read it, please let me know what you think.

More violence...

The shippy bits are mostly in the last two chapters.

Come the Revolution part 8 )

I know what I hate, and I don't hate this. I'm really glad I finished it this time.

Now I have to think of a Buffy fic that will stay a Buffy fic. :)
jmatonak: (Default)
This one is pretty long.

Come the Revolution part 7 )

I think there's one more part, maybe two.

How are you liking it so far?
jmatonak: (Default)
And yet more...

Come the Revolution part 6 )

Okay, I've seen issue 2 now.
jmatonak: (Default)

Come the Revolution part 5 )

I understand Issue 2 of the Season Eight comic is out. I haven't seen it yet, so don't spoil me, please.

The fight continues...

Come the Revolution part 4 )

As always, I welcome comments.
jmatonak: (Default)
More fic. I'm as surprised as you are. This part has cursing.

Come the Revolution part 2 )

I crave attention, no matter how negative. If you have anything to say, please, please do.

I really wanted this to be a Buffy fic, but it's an Angel fic instead. With guest stars.

There are no special pairings here and so far it's R-rated at most, for gore and violence.

I perhaps should mention that this follows immediately from the end of Not Fade Away and has spoilers for all of both shows.

Come the Revolution part 1 )

I'm desperate for feedback. Even more so than other fic authors, I mean.
