Title: Five Days
Fandom: Watchmen Z!verse/Left4Dead
Characters/Pairings: Rorschach/Dan, some L4D guest cameos.
Date Written: 2011
Summary: "It takes five days to change," says the graffiti. When you don't know if you're immune or not, it's a hell of a long time to wait.
Rating/Warnings: R for language. Warning for attempted suicide, but under the circumstances it's pretty understandable.
Notes:  For [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo, which I have so far utterly failed at. 'zombie apocalypse'. So of course I had to take my already-sick-of-zombies zverse boys and throw the L4D verse at them. D:

The door slams shut under their combined weight, an impact they can feel in their bones. )

You just need a few minutes, here, to consider the incredible breadth and depth of what a nooksniffing fuckup you are. If only you could just explain how you feel, without being an idiot.

Maybe if you can just spend some uninterrupted time observing the endless emptiness of the universe OH GOG DAMN IT.

Yeah, this obsession will burn itself out eventually, I'm sure.

Nuts and bolts:

33,000 words as of end of day yesterday. This is well ahead of schedule; I've been ahead the whole time as far as I can see. I've got a lot of the main story arc down and it's looking like this barebones version will probably line up pretty well with the 50K mark.

Stats so far--
Random timeframe shifts: 7
Dream sequences: 3
Action scenes: 3
Deaths: 2
Clumsy makeouts: 1
Incidences of zombies drinking whiskey: 1
Incidences of cuddlingSHARING BODY HEAT: 2
Ways in which this is more of a fanfic than a novel: too many to count. :|

Which brings me to the bad news: yeah, this isn't really a novel. It's a fanfic with the names changed. I'm not sure what to do about that. (Edited out for whininess)

Edited to add: I'll probably just keep pushing through anyway, no worries. At very worst, I'll just change the names back and post it as fanfic. Not like that's a terrible outcome for a month's effort. It's just not what I was hoping for, you know?
etherati: (WM - R/D - fucking nigh)
Okay, a few things I wanna throw out there.

First - thank you for the spider, [livejournal.com profile] wednesday42 :D :D SO CUTE.

Second - I've been scarce for a while, and that's because I've been trying to square away schoolwork as much as I can so that I will be as free as possible during November. Doing pre-lab reports ahead of time, writing papers ahead of time, etc. That's also why I put such a hard push in to finish off BTB: wanted it to not be nagging at me during November.

Which brings me to point three: NaNo. I'm doing it this year. There will be zombie cowboys. There will be derpy bird-nerd cowboys. There will NOT be much time available for other stuff, so expect the scarcity to keep up for a while. I wrapped BTB but I know Vigil and a few other KM-based WIPs are still languishing; I'll get back to them after NaNo's over.

Fourth: I have a full hoboschach getup that I have never actually pulled out for halloween. Should I? :D

Title: Fracture
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Rorschach
Date Written: 2011
Summary: A fractured heart has room for only one kind of justice.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13 mostly, but there's some pretty nasty violence and coarse language.
Notes:  KM fill, for the scenario that Dan doesn't spring Rorschach from jail, and he is still there when he hears of 'Nite Owl's murder, with no way to verify which Nite Owl it was.

Walter Kovacs will remember it as the day that this horrible city finally managed to break him. )

etherati: (WM - R - fade)
Title: Rabbit Holes and Four-Winged Pigeons
Fandom: Watchmen/Inception fusion/au
Characters/Pairings: Walter, Dan
Date Written: 2011
Summary: Is it really a deathwish when you're just trying to wake up?
Rating/Warnings: PG-13.

He doesn't remember waking up but he still feels like he's been falling, for hours and hours, falling a very long way. )
etherati: (WM - R/D - surprise)
Okay, so, sometimes I write these things for KM, not serious fic, just... Id fic. Because the prompt made me go HNNGG WANNNNT and I had no literary shame that day. Strangely, not usually porn! In this case, H/C and UST abound. Not high works of literature, just food for the ever-hungry Id.

Title: For Your Own Good
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Rorschach, Dan
Date Written: 2011
Summary: Dan has an accident; Rorschach saves him but thinks he's suicidal. And reacts accordingly.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, a little triggery for Ror's thoughts on suicide.
Notes:  KM fill, from a prompt back on KM 1. Ollllld school.

It’s dark already when Rorschach puts his shoulder into the massive door of the warehouse, picks his way down the subway labyrinth toward the Owl’s Nest. )

Title: Liability
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Rorschach, Dan
Date Written: 2011
Summary: Rorschach claims to have no weakness. Someone proves him wrong by finding it.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, some rough language.

"Not so fuckin' tough now, are ya?" the thug asks, last man standing but it doesn't matter, because his sudden advantage is undeniable. )
etherati: (WM - R/D - right the wrong)
Title: Between the Brushstrokes
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Dan, Rorschach, Adrian, Laurie, Manhattan in pt 1, Dan/Ror.
Date Written: 2010-2011
Summary: A lot happens in the in-between spaces; in the tiny intervals of time in which no one is watching, we are free. Dan and Rorschach face the future more head-on than they expected; Adrian learns about regret and what happens when you're wrong.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13 in general, some language. Philosophy, violence, twilight zone bullshit, time travel, pretentious metaphors, and Waffle House.
Notes: Yet ANOTHER kinkmeme prompt. Post-GN fixit. Complete.

Sunset over the Adirondacks; some derelict siding, far past any highway signs or trail head markers. October. )

The night creeps up on silent feet, settles around them like so much black goosedown, smothering. )

So, this last week was pretty godawful.

First, my parents lost another of the cats that I helped bottlefeed and hand-rear from two days old, back in 1998. Cancer, again, just like her brother. Their other brother is now the only one left. I can't say a lot about this part because I am still too devastated to process it.

Here is her picture, because she was beautiful and deserves to be seen )

Then a freak frost came through and completely destroyed my garden weeks too early. Just an annoyance, but god damn it.

Then I lost the musical bedrock of my life, which leaves me feeling strangely like... I don't know, like without a soundtrack, the rest of my life won't be as real as the first 31 years have been. There are certain things you expect will always be there, like the moon and the smell of newsprint on transit in the morning and the way the sky looks bruised and translucent after a storm, and REM was one of those things to me. They got me through more shitty things than I can count, and they told me that everything I was feeling had been felt and survived before, and they promised me that there was nothing wrong with me for being nostalgic and sentimental and for looking for all the lost and forgotten things, traced out in grainy black and white and framed by transistor radio static. It was okay to see things differently, to resonate with strangeness. Now I don't know if it still is.

Ugh. Damn it all.

I guess I just needed to get some of this laid out, here. Hopes for a better week coming up, please? :\

A place to stay, enough to eat,
Somewhere old heroes shuffle safely down the street
Where you can speak out loud about your doubts and fears,
And what's more, no one ever disappears,
You never hear their standard-issue kicking in your door.

You can relax on both sides of the tracks
And maniacs don't blow holes in bandsmen by remote control
And everyone has recourse to the law
And no one kills the children anymore.

-

In the corner of some foreign field,
The gunner sleeps tonight.
What's done is done.

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line (or first and second line if it's completely impossible) from the first 15 (I got carried away and did 20, whatever) songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Strike out the song when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like the game, post your own.

stuff stuff stuff )
