Another Blogiversary Coming Up

 

Whoa, but that year went fast (just like the previous). 19th February it’ll be two years since I started this blog and two years since I finished the first draft of Say Something Else. Last year, for the occasion, I posted Little Alec, an SSE extra, and this year I’m going to add to it.

I have nothing written yet, I’ll be starting either tonight or tomorrow, I’m allowing myself up to 10k for this installment which could take me a week or more to write… Okay, I’ll stop. I’m just gonna freak myself out :) i get nervous when I have little more than a month to write even something shortish like this. But I adore Alec and Edward, I feel like I know them well, and I’ve been wanting to write this second chapter since I posted the first.

So, yeah. Watch this space :)

Fic Update: Déjà Vu

I’ve just posted chapter 2 of the crazy mess that is my Say Something Else alternate universe fic where Alec comes back from the dead, all vampy :) This is the one that used to be called ‘Delusional’.

Clicky to read Chapter 2 of Déjà Vu on FanFiction.net/ArchiveOfOurOwn/TwiWrite


Holy Crap

Two months since I last posted, and a bunch of stuff’s happened. Okay, now’s the time for the epic catch up post and then I’ll be back on track…with any luck.

Fic I’ve posted in the last two months:

The fic formerly known as Delusional (I’m changing the name, but what to I haven’t decided yet. I’ll make that decision when I complete it)
Summary:
Alec is back! AU SSEverse bday request for Seren. ‘For a moment, he’s there, and he’s real, and it’s him. I see it in the way he stands, the way his hair curls behind his ears. He’s more beautiful than my memory or an image on paper can do justice.’ Slash

Lost Boys (my CarlWard entry)
Summary:
My perfect memory does him no justice. Edward is more beautiful than I remember, but he seems almost wild, in the manner the nomadic vampires often have. "I can’t bear it any longer," he whispers. "Their minds are full of depravity. It infects me." Slash.

Quickies
Summary: Three under 500 word ficlets first posted in the Quickie Contest. A couple of old things I scavenged from my hard drive and one I wrote especially for the contest.

And I added an extra/chapter 2 to Sober, my first ever slash fic (and OMFG AH E/J).

In other news, along with venis-envy, mynameisserendipity, and sapphirescribe, I started the VampSlash blog and contest. This is wicked scary, ‘cause I’m THE most unorganised person on the planet, but thankfully the other girls haven’t tossed me out on my ass for being a slacker yet.

And what am I doing right now? Well, I’m writing a little thing for the summer edition of the Twilight No Stress Love Fest. Once that’s done I’ll be diving right back into (the fic formerly known as) Delusional.

I’ll try to be a better blogger from now on, I promise…


Tease: Little Alec – the Say Something Else Extra

Why the hell do we of the twifandom call them outtakes? They aren’t outtakes? They’re extras, dammit! Well, mine are, cos when I shifted all my stuff from the crappy old desktop to my nifty wee netbook, somehow I disposed of the real cut scenes from Say Something Else. Bugger it. Oh well, they were crap, anyway. Did you know that I had no idea what was going on in Edward’s mind at the end of Chapter 11 until I actually tried to write the Edward/Seth sex scene?

OMG it was awful. Painful. It tore me up inside.

That, of course, is how we ended up with the Edward/Alec flashback smack bang in the middle of Chapter 11. That, by contrast, just wrote itself.

Have you re-read Say Something Else yet? You should. It’s not just me saying that. dellaterra re-read it before she beta’d the extra for me and she advised me to tell you to do the same. She says (and I hope she won’t hate me for sharing her words):

…re-read SSE … if they want to be destroyed (and I say that in a good way) by the emotional impact of what those beautiful boys realized they had…

There you have it. I do almost anything she tells me to do, so you should, too ;)

Little Alec will be posted on the 19th of February. Technically, it should be my 19th, which is tomorrow, because it was my 19th when I finished the first draft of SSE and made my first blog post here. It might, however, be the 19th in the US when it’s posted. Just got a few more edits to do, but my brain is fried and I might leave them till I’m all fresh tomorrow. Don’t know. Or I might just want to torture you all.

So it’s SSE’s birthday and my blogiversary, and, I did kinda also maybe promise an Alec extra way back when I was whoring for reviews to get SSE over the 500 review milestone. That was months ago. Woops. I suck.

Woefully unreliable, is me :) And disorganised. I don’t have a summary for it yet…

I promised a tease, huh? All right then, here goes *switches windows, rummaging for something interesting*

He stared at me a long time. Told me I was beautiful, and I blushed, of course. Then he kissed me.

It wasn’t like the kiss at the pub. That was hello, nice to meet you, hit you right in the chest and make your heart ache for the possibilities.

It wasn’t like the ones on the street, either. They’d been fun kisses, the sort where you’re laughing into each other’s mouths.

It wasn’t like the one right outside his door, sweet and slow and sexy.

It started sweet and wondrous, and he smiled against my lips, then slow and sexy for a moment or two, but it quickly went out the other side. Now he had his teeth locked around my piercing and was hanging on as if he never intended to let go.

It was fucking hot.

With my tongue trapped between his teeth, I couldn’t help moaning as he tugged on the barbell. The pressure was insane.

I’m not a distrustful person. I’ll give anyone a go, and if they screw me over then I’ll worry about whether I’ll do it again. I never needed to know for sure. I didn’t know Edward at all, but I think I would have done anything for him, and it had nothing to do with the fact that he had one of the most vulnerable parts of me trapped firmly between his teeth.

Flicking his tongue over the lower ball, he moaned into my mouth. His hands came down around the back of my neck, and he pushed his hips hard against mine and began to move. Beneath my closed eyelids, my eyes rolled back as he lined his cock up perfectly with mine and thrust against me. He did it again, releasing my tongue as he got a rhythm going, breathing hard, exhaling on each thrust with the softest, almost imperceptible grunt.

The sounds he made were so much sexier than mine. I was letting out a little squeak every time his hard cock rubbed the length of mine.

He pulled back. Those pretty green eyes were all glittery, his mouth was open, his chest was heaving and he dragged his hands down the door and wrapped them around the back of my neck before he kissed me again. This one was hunger and need and heavy and devouring, lips and teeth pinching, biting, sucking.

And all the time he rocked his hips against mine. If he kept doing it, I was gonna come in my jeans.

That was a bit scary! Yes, I suffer from posting anxiety. It’ll be worse on the 19th, I’ll tell you that.

The extra is 7k, just in case you thought you got a quarter of it right there in that tease ;) You know, based on my usual word counts (and the SSE chapter lengths).

Okay. I’m gonna go now. *shifty eyes* Thanks for listening :D


The SSE Alec Outtake: First Draft Completed

If you were on twitter last night (my last night) you’ll know I finished the first draft of the long promised Alec outtake. And I was very excited about that fact.

First drafts rarely end like that for me. I’m usually left with a sense of relief, but also a foreboding dread of the revision ahead of me. I ramble so much, I go off in weird-ass directions, write several different versions of the middle or the ending, and wind up having to stitch together some kind of logical narrative out of parts and pieces.

Okay, I do have parts and pieces of Alec. But for some reason I shifted those out of there when I realised I was getting off track, and the bit I have come out with is actually a logical narrative.

This never happens to me!

Also, I think the story is good. I think I did what I set out to do. I think it’s gonna get some ‘awwww’s. I wound up the final scene grinning from ear to ear as it slid seamlessly into what I already have in Say Something Else.

Awwwww.

I need a title. I need to check SSE and make sure I have continuity between Edward’s version and Alec’s (no, there are no ‘scenes rewritten from alternate perspective’. Ick). I need to edit. It’s currently 6k+ (that’s one long outtake, for me. Hell, that’s a long one-shot for me), and I can imagine it may come down to around 5ish. That will be my goal, anyway.

Posting date for the Alec outtake is 19th February, my blogiversary and a year since I finished the first draft of Say Something Else. I’ll start to drop teasers probably a week out from there here on my blog, so if you haven’t already, add it to your feed reader or subscribe by email.


NaNo: Thank god it’s OVER!

Well that was a very different experience from last year. What a balls up! I picked the wrong story, didn’t give a shit about my characters, wrote utter shite…

Yeah.

There is a salvageable story in there, though in no way will it reflect the word count I reached.

So, filing that bastard till…I dunno. February or something.

But I’m left with a bit of a lost feeling. The urge is to write, because that’s what I’ve been doing for so long, but I feel like I need to take a break. I have my yuletwi’d exchange fic drafted already, and I have to revise that, and soon (Dec 20th deadline, and it’s freaking me out). Revision and editing is a whole other thing from writing, so that should be kinda good.

Then, at some stage soon, I have a certain promised Alec POV SSE outtake to complete :D And then I better dive back in to the mindfuck that is Beautiful Dangerous O.O
