In which I actually meet a self-imposed deadline to finish this tonight, as I have a 5-hour plane ride tomorrow (and again on Thursday) that I would really like to use to start my got-exchange fic and/or my Big Bang fic. So at least this is out of the way!

Title: Rivers and Roads (3/3)
Rating: M
Chapter Word Count: 6025 (and the whole thing ends up at 20k words, just wut.)
Pairings: Ned/Cat, Brandon/Cat
Prompt: AU: Instead of Petyr, Ned is fostered in the Riverlands and gets up to all sorts of teenage shenanigans with Hoster Tully’s eldest daughter.

2:08 am - Hurricane Sandy Auction Fic
Because I'm SURE I messed up posting this to the community, cross-posting to my LJ:

Title: that my lips could build a castle
For: tracylordhaven
Rating: T
Word Count: 2221
Pairing: Jon Snow/Sansa Stark
Prompt: The request was for a post-series fic that had Sansa happy with someone around her own age. You guys know how well I do 'happy' so this probably fits more in the 'hopeful' vein. They're on their way!

that my lips could build a castleCollapse )

A head's up that holiday fics will likely extend into January, though I aim to have them all done by the end of January!

Now that my exchange fic is done, I feel like I need a little break not from writing, but from required writing, if that makes sense. I have a few plot bunnies dancing around my head, so I might stop and play with them for a little bit and see if anything comes of it.

3:20 pm - Hurricane Sandy Auction

While I was lucky to escape with minimal damage (loss of power until Monday, so I'm crashing at my parents who didn't lose power), Hurricane Sandy wrecked havoc on the Caribbean and the eastern coast of the United States. This is a tiny thing I can do to help. I will write a minimum of 1000 words for the auction winner for the pairing/characters of their choosing in the fandoms I have listed.

See my thread here: http://fandomaid.livejournal.com/52693.html?thread=385493#t385493

Stealing shamelessly both from Laine, and from past years, I'm going to do another 'Twelve Days of Fic-Mas' during the month of December. XD Only twelve days rather than a month because I'm terrified of commitment, and during the month of December rather than specific days because I am horrible at deadlines anyway. I figure this gives me about two and a half days per fic, and I'm putting this up now to try and give myself a head start. XD

So the first twelve people to respond here, I will write a ficlet of at least 500 words for the prompt and characters/pairing of your choice. Please leave me a prompt, not just a pairing. I'll try my best to fill your prompt as closely as possible but if it's completely out of my range, I'll let you know and let you pick again.

Heads up that I'm not very comfortable writing M/M so unless you hit one of those pairings that I'm certain of that's probably something to stay away from. Het, gen, or F/F are all fine. Any rating is fine, as well.

Leaving this Friends Only for the time being but may open it up if I don't get twelve. XD

Fandoms Available:
-ASOIAF/Game of Thrones
-Harry Potter
-Once Upon A Time

I am terrified but know it's just because I'm uber stressed at work right now - this'll be fun. XD I'll keep a running tally below - first come, first serve, and sorry, only 12!

1. joely_jo
2. lainemontgomery
3. lit_chick08
4. themostepotente
5. phineas_gatsby
6. fields195
7. honey_wheeler
8. septemberrains
9. elleg85
10. fauxkaren
11. mihnn
12. FANDOM AID AUCTION - SEE HERE. Open to anyone!

Why did I write this. This is only sorrow.

Title: Measures
Rating: T
Word Count: 3,915
Pairing: Ned/Catelyn
Prompt: "AU. Catelyn's dying (childbirth, fever) and knows it. She tells Ned he's loved someone before her, he can love someone after her. So Ned finally reveals R+L=J to her."

As it turns out, dying can be a more sedate thing, and it is not always measured in moments, but sometimes in hours and days.Collapse )

Title: Sweet nectar of a poisoned fruit
Rating: T
Word count: 3,435
Fandom: ASOIAF/GoT
Pairing: Ned/Catelyn
asoiafkinkmeme prompt: 'Ned/Cat - Hades and Persephone'
Notes: Several AU factors to make this work - I think you can figure it out as you go along. :) The biggest one is assuming there is never a betrothal between Catelyn and Brandon. I couldn't resist this prompt as I was a huge Greek mythology nerd in middle/high school, and it was fun bending both the myth and some factors of the ASOIAF universe to make the story fit while trying to keep everyone in character. :)

If Catelyn closes her eyes, it is almost as though she is again home in the Riverlands, beautiful and green.Collapse )

Title: this house no longer feels like home
Rating: M
Word Count: 4,027
Fandom: ASOIAF/GoT
Pairing: Ned/Catelyn
Notes: For the asoiafkinkmeme prompt: "'Take no wife...' AU where Ned is allowed to take the black, leading to angsty Ned/Cat."

Angst. Angst. And more angst. (BRB gotta write some happier stuff now!)

He thinks often of his vows.Collapse )

Title: three coins in the fountain
Rating: M
Fandom: ASOIAF/GoT
Pairings/characters: Catelyn/Ned, Jaime/Cersei, Robert
Word Count: 5590

'"What do you say, Ned? Just you and me, two vagabond knights on the kingsroad, our swords at our sides and the gods know what in front of us ..."

Mercenary AU -- where Robert still went to war but never bothered claiming the throne -- maybe he went across the Narrow Sea and Ned followed because someone had to keep Robert out of trouble. Now they've come back to the Seven Kingdoms (for whatever reason), and for the first time in years Ned meets the woman he was supposed to marry when the war was over.

(In other words, Ned/Cat. Preferably with conflicted sexytimes because she's since been married to someone else but they find they can't keep their hands off each other.)'


Time moves differently in the Free Cities.Collapse )

Another meme! Gacked this time from xylodemon:

'Tell me about a story that I haven't written, and I'll give you between one and three sentences from that fic.'

Randoms that apply: ASOIAF, Harry Potter, Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy, Law and Order SVU, Once Upon a Time

(Should be fun because I have a mix of fandom friends, old and new - and who knows, maybe I'll love the prompt and end up writing more than 1-3 sentences. XD)
