being human (the show, not the condition. i'm not that pretentious), gothic novels, famous people's sex lives, feminism, art history, writing fiction and doomed historical ladies.

ghost story multi-fandom comment ficathon
[stock] also a ghost


"Ghost", here, can be interpreted pretty much however you want. This could mean writing fic about a character who is canonically a ghost, such as Annie from Being Human, it could mean a dead character who comes back as a ghost, it could mean someone remembering dead people, it could mean two living characters who haven't seen each other in years, it could just mean a story with a generally macabre mood. If it can be somehow tied to the concept of ghosts, go for it.

Leave a comment with a fandom, character(s) and a prompt. Both pairing prompts and gen are welcome. As per the title, all fandoms are allowed.

1. Reply to the prompt with your work, with the subject line: title of work, fandom, character(s), rating. Please include trigger warnings if there is potentially triggering content.
2. Please link to your work in the "filled" thread.

Please promote as much as you can! I'd love to see people here.

mix: c'est la vie, c'est la mort (robb/jeyne/war, answer the call)
[thrones] i am the son and heir

This is a fanmix for the iterations of Robb Stark and Jeyne Westerling in answer the call, an AU WWI ASOIAF roleplay on tumblr. I play Jeyne and plantagenet from tumblr plays Robb. It's great fun and we could always use more characters. Basically, as we are planning, Jeyne is Bran and Rickon's governess for a brief time before the war and she and Robb engage in a kind of distant flirtation that neither of them really think will go anywhere and then when she's a VAD nurse at the front and he's wounded, they meet up again and ~things ensue.

holiday fic requests 2011
[romantics] impotence is our only hope
Taken from corleones:

Comment with: a day, a fandom, a pairing, and a prompt, and I will write at least 300 words for you, to be posted on the day you claimed. Any fandom you know I'm familiar with is fair game, though I reserve the right to ask for a different prompt if you pick something I don't feel comfortable writing, or a fandom I haven't been into in a long time.

nano-wrimo thirty day challenge, days one and two
[crimson] lazy languid laughing jenny
Already posted this one on tumblr, but I think I'll do the bulk of this meme over here, so reposting. If anyone's interested in doing this meme, all the days are here.

And if anyone else is doing nano, let me know! I want to hear all about it.

Day 1 - Have you participated in NaNoWriMo before?  If so, which years and what end result?  If not (or even if so, for that matter), what’s your connection to writing?  Why do you want to participate this year?

First thing you should know about me and Nano is that I am cheating. I am trying to up my word count on something I already am working on. I am damned to hell. That said, I have participated before. I participated last year for about ten days, gave up and tried another idea. I have been working on said “other idea” for the last year and it’s the novel I’m working on now. Go figure.

Day 2 - What’s the title of your story?  Why did you choose the name you did?

I don’t have one at the moment. It used to be “Unquiet Slumbers” after the line in Wuthering Heights—“anyone could imagine unquiet slumbers for the sleepers in that quiet earth” but something about it seems too over the top for me now. Or I could go back to it, but I don’t know. I chose it because it’s a novel about a family where all the women who are born or married into commit suicide. The mother of the current family becomes convinced that the previous women are haunting her and it’s never clear whether or not it’s her imagination or not. Her elder daughter (my protagonist) sometimes sees the women and sometimes doesn’t and is unsure of her own mental state. So—hence title.

fic: make me a willow cabin at your gate (bel/marnie)
[hour] mayfair mistress
make me a willow cabin at your gate.
the hour. bel rowley/marnie madden. two women who no longer have anything to fight about. Marnie seems more adult now--she still speaks in that silly, posh, almost childish way but there is a kind of gravity to her that Bel only saw on occasion before.

notes: yet again, here i am on my femmeslash brigade of one. i sort of ship this like burning even if hardly anyone else does, so of course, i wrote fic.
