Since I wrote pretty much nothing all year (until yuletide, when I wrote ALL THE THINGS), I figured I wouldn't restrict this to just fic, because what would be the point? So, things I made posted in 2012:

Occupied (Diplomatic Immunity, Ensemble)
Heavily Armoured (DCU, Dick/Steph)
Scavenger Hunting Is Extremely Likely Disastrous (S.H.I.E.L.D) (Avengers, Sif/Darcy)
And All I Got Was This Stupid T-Shirt (New Girl, Nick/Jess)
Advanced Practical Stealth Techniques (or, Things That Weren't In The Course Catalogue) (Princess Protection Program, Carter/Rosie)

Ultimate Showdown Of Ultimate Destiny (The Middleman, Ensemble)

Past = Prologue (Doom, John/Sam)
Love In The Time Of Zombies (Doom, John/Sam)
Ever After (Doom, John/Sam)
I'm Not Your Boyfriend (The Office, Ryan/Kelly)

How To Solve A Fake Love Triangle (With Llamas) (Big Time Rush, Kendall/Jo)
Big Time Bingo (Big Time Rush, Ensemble)
Sometimes I Just Do Stuff (Big Time Rush, Carlos)
I Guess You're Fans Of The Cliché (Big Time Rush, Ensemble)

I haven't updated in so long, except to post exchange letters and whatnot. So ... I'm still alive? Busy, ugh, but working, yay, and I should find out any day now if I still have a job for next year. Being on contract sucks.

Things I've been doing lately: Reading comics. Watching cartoons (in other words, I finally caught up with Young Justice COME TALK TO ME ABOUT THE [SPOILER] CAMEO IN THE LAST EPISODE). Not writing anything at all ever. Watching the rest of The Nine Lives of Chloe King - I'm up to the last episode and so not ready for it to end, why does TV always cancel everything good? I love it so much though, P.S. COLTON HAYNES WAS IN THIS ONE EPISODE SO THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE INTO THAT AT ALL SHOULD TOTALLY WATCH THIS SHOW, IT'S ONLY TEN EPISODES LONG YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO. Also the guy who plays Isaac, but I care less about him.

Related: Colton Haynes is leaving Teen Wolf??? I know I never ever post about it here, but I love the crap out of that stupid show, and Lydia is totally my favourite (and then Scott, why don't people love Scott? He's so faily and adorable) but somehow I have ALL THE FEELINGS about Jackson, I just want them to be improbably OTP forever and ugh, still totally sad about this even though it hasn't been news in forever.

I didn't originally offer The Mindy Project for Yuletide because I'm honestly not sure how much I like the show yet (but it's Mindy so I'll keep watching forever regardless, and the episodes have been getting a lot better, so), but apparently I really want to write fic for it? I kept reading people's letters and getting really excited by Mindy Project requests, so then I just bit the bullet and offered it officially. Apparently it is my destiny to ship Mindy hard with short dark-haired guys who don't want to be in love with her but secretly totally are on shows I'm actually not all that into otherwise FOREVER. That's ... a weirdly specific type, whatever.

Also related: Spoilers for The Office season premiere )

... I think that's pretty much it? There is probably more, but I'm only off work for a couple of hours (I have a half day today) before I have to go back in for a meeting, I could have just stayed but I'm not feeling great plus I really wanted to have lunch at home. TELL ME EXCITING THINGS! Or an ever greater number of really boring things, whatever.
amathela: ([office] like a fairy tale)
So this is a weird kind of - happy breakup mix? Kind of? I actually started this before I watched the last few episodes, but it's pretty appropriate nonetheless. (Also, I kind of want Kelly to marry the hot Indian doctor and make her parents happy and settle down and live happily ever after and Ryan is forever alone. Is that a weird thing to want for my OTP? Whatever, when is Mindy's new show on.)

As soon as I love her it's been too long )

Dear [community profile] yuletide writer:

Thank you so much for writing me a fic! I'm sure it's going to be amazing, and I'm so looking forward to reading it. My requests are a little on the wordy side, but please don't let that intimidate you - if my optional details don't work for you, or if you already have an idea in mind, I'd much rather get a great story you're really excited about than something mediocre tailored exactly to my requests. But just in case you enjoy reading yuletide letters as much as I enjoy writing them, here are some ideas/extra information/things that would make me especially happy.

I love banter, unresolved (and resolved) sexual tension, romantic comedy, awesome plots, action/adventure, wacky hijinks, humour, crack, PWPs, apocafic, and ridiculous AUs. In general, I'm not super into angst. I really, really, love tropes and clichés, which I know is unhelpfully vague, but: If you're ever wondering, does she want fic with pretending to be a couple/forced proximity/sharing a bed/bachelor auction/truth or dare/accidental makeouts/insert ridiculous cliché here, the answer is yes, yes I do. I love first times, and secret relationships, and casual hookups, and ex-girlfriends and boyfriends, and rekindling old relationships. I love people being in love without having to say it; and people who are obviously in love but maybe don't realise it; and ridiculously overblown romantic gestures where one person completely embarrasses themselves, because that's kind of the point of the grand gesture; and tiny, unnoticeable gestures that mean a whole lot more than they seem to. The stuff I don't love pretty much boils down to making the characters I love unhappy for no good reason. And character bashing, even of characters I don't like. I'm happy to read any rating, and smut is welcome but absolutely not necessary.

Yay, you're writing me a fic! This is a thing I love, and I'm already excited to read it. If you already have an awesome idea you're totally excited to write, feel free to go ahead and do just that - I love every one of these fandoms, so I'm sure to enjoy anything you could possibly write, especially if you love it, too. But in case you're still looking for that perfect idea, these are just a few of the things I love in fic, and in the fandoms I requested, which may give you some idea of what would make me particularly happy.

In general, I love fun, happy fic, and am not so much into angst. But if you want to write angst, that's okay, too! I love banter, unresolved (and resolved) sexual tension, romantic comedy, action/adventure, wacky hijinks, humour, crack, and ridiculous AUs. I love apocafic, angsty or otherwise (but especially otherwise). I love first times, and secret relationships, and casual hookups, and ex-girlfriends and boyfriends, and rekindling old relationships. I love people being in love without having to say it; and people who are obviously in love but maybe don't realise it; and ridiculously overblown romantic gestures where one person completely embarrasses themselves, because that's kind of the point of the grand gesture; and tiny, unnoticeable gestures that mean a whole lot more than they seem to. The stuff I don't love pretty much boils down to making the characters I love unhappy for no good reason. And character bashing, even of characters I don't like.

Meme-ish things, part two! [ profile] iladora asked for five fictional characters I wish were my IRL friends:

Ashleigh Howard, Greek. We would borrow each other's clothes and plan fun college parties and watch 80's rom-coms together, it would be awesome. If I could be friends with any fictional character in the universe, it would be Ashleigh.

Kelly Kapoor, The Office. Okay, honestly, I'm not sure I could stand full-time Kelly, but - Ryan does it? And he's only gone a little bit insane? Plus, she is super fantastic, we could go shopping and paint our nails and watch crappy girly movies and be super excited about BASICALLY ANYTHING THAT IS AWESOME, and she's essentially Mindy Kaling on crack through a sitcom filter, so what's not to love about that?

Ted Mosby, How I Met Your Mother. Oh, Ted! I love him, and I don't even care if he pronounces encyclopedia like a tool. I would let him show me architecture and be pretentious and I would listen super patiently to all his many and varied romantic woes and I would fix him up with all my cool single girlfriends even though it would inevitably end in disaster because one day he might just make it work, and we would dress up and go to really boring parties AND THEN WE WOULD WATCH SOME FIGHTING ROBOTS, COME ON, YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO BE FRIENDS WITH TED MOSBY TOO.

Eli Wallace, Stargate Universe. I blame this entirely on a dream I once had where we were friends and bad stuff was happening and then he cuddled me and I felt better, but whatever, he looks like he'd be awesome at cuddling. And that's my entire reasoning. Sometimes you just need a friend who gives good hugs.

Cara Mason, Legend Of The Seeker. I'm - not really sure how this one would work? At least the others live in what is more or less the real world, but whatever - regular Cara, or modern AU!Cara, or whatever, I think she would be an awesome friend, fierce and snarky and loyal and excellent in bed. If you earned it. And nobody can eye roll like Cara, don't even true to argue.

[ profile] corleones asked for my top five literary OTPs, and ... honestly, I'm not sure I have a lot of literary OTPs. Which, considering how much I love shipping, honestly surprised me. Um, I really love Knightley/Emma? But other than that, IDK, I'm sorry I couldn't answer your question!

[ profile] jengrrrl gave me these icons to talk about:

Tell a thousand words )

ALSO, I HAVE BEEN WATCHING MAKE IT OR BREAK IT ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ YOU CAN PROBABLY EXPECT A POST ABOUT THAT SOMETIME SOON. (I know I promised a proper update, but - it's possible I lied?)
amathela: ([lots] richard/cara)
Okay, so most of what I posted this month was actually written last year, but most of what I did write this month was for longer fics that haven't been posted yet, so it pretty much evens out. Anyway, I posted nine fics in seven (eight?) fandoms: Wizards of Waverly Place, Disney RPF, Princess Protection Program, Glee RPF, The Office, Dollhouse, and a BtVS/Firefly crossover.

Offer Me Alternatives (And I Decline) (Dollhouse - Dominic/Adelle - PG-13 - 650 words) It's not the end of the world. Spoilers up to season two.

Kiss And Tell (The Office - Ryan/Kelly, Andy/Erin - PG-13 - 937 words) Five kisses that may or may not have happened while filming Male Prima Donna.

Our Faces Split The Coast In Half (Princess Protection Program - Carter/Rosie - PG-13 - 784 words) Rosie decides to show Carter around Costa Luna.

Mnemonic Devices To Help You Remember How To Spell 'Mnemonic Devices' (Wizards Of Waverly Place - Justin/Alex - PG - 3470 words) She finds sticky notes in four different books, folded pages in two, and even notes scrawled in the margins of something she thinks must have been one of their dad's old magic books. Spoilers up to episode 2:5 - Night At The Lazerama.

A Dollar Seventy-Five Won't Buy You Much (In Space) (Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Firefly - Graham/Nandi - PG-13 - 265 words) Home is where you lay your head.

Everything Is Not What It Seems (Disney RPF - David Henrie/Selena Gomez - PG-13 - 1928 words) They're being stealth. (Or, the art of keeping a relationship secret when your boyfriend wouldn't know subtlety if it hit him over the head. Repeatedly.)

To Face Unafraid The Plans That We've Made (Disney RPF - Demi Lovato/Selena Gomez - PG-13 - 1656 words) "So," Demi says. "There's a dance." Part of the DC High 'verse.

Dream Days At The Hotel Existence (Glee RPF - Mark Salling/Dianna Agron - PG-13 - 1172 words) "Don't you have your own room?"

How To Be A Domestic Goddess (Glee RPF - Lea Michele/Dianna Agron - PG-13 - 1733 words) She's majorly, totally, butt-crazy in love with her roommate.

Also, year to date writing check-in:

Title: Kiss And Tell
Fandom: The Office
Pairing(s): Ryan/Kelly, Andy/Erin
Word Count: 937
Rating: PG-13

Summary: Five kisses that may or may not have happened while filming Male Prima Donna.

Notes: Written for the awesome (and patient!) [ profile] dollsome. Spoilers for the Subtle Sexuality webisodes.

Hotter than a sauna )
amathela: ([office] shoot me now)
The Office is distracting me. [ profile] talumin is currently rewatching what we have of the U.S. series on DVD, and not only is it an all too convenient excuse to not be writing, but that (combined with the recent awesomeness of Subtle Sexuality) is also giving me inconveniently timed re-flaily Ryan/Kelly (and B.J./Mindy) feelings. I had to try really hard to restrain myself from requesting The Office RPF for [ profile] yuletide again this year, even though a) it's already one of my requests for [ profile] prettylightsfic, and b) I requested it for last year's [ profile] yuletide, and received not one but two awesome fics. (Which are totally to blame for me wanting to ask for it again - they were perfect, and I want more of that.)

I'm also trying to ignore a Ryan/Kelly plot bunny that bit me, hard, in favour of finishing up stuff I actually have to do. (Not that I'm not going to write it, just ... later. Along with any potential quest-y Disney RPF fics involving dragons.) I'm not sure if it's helpful or not that what I thought was a simple idea has ballooned into something ridiculously long and involved, but at least that means I won't be tempted to try to quickly dash it off before I finish my other fics.

(Also, okay. You know how I'm completely lazy and tend to name a lot of my fics after song titles? I turned on my iTunes, and the first thing that came on - not the song I'm listening to right now - was the song after which I've named the fic I'm currently supposed to working on. A not-so-subtle hint, perhaps? Fine, fine, I'm writing.)
amathela: ([misc] gold)
Dear [ profile] prettylightsfic author:

First off, I am so, so excited about this ficathon. And that you're writing something for me. Whatever it is, I'm sure it will be super awesome, and I'm really excited to read it. And if you already know what you're going to write - that's awesome! Go for it. If you're excited about it, there's roughly a 100% chance I'll be excited about it, too. But if you wanted a few more ideas, or to know about stuff I like and dislike or whatever, I can do that, too.

Stuff I love, and other things )

If you wanted to know more about how I feel about these fandoms in general, you can browse my tags: The Office, Merlin, Wizards Of Waverly Place, Princess Protection Program, Disney. Or feel free to ignore everything I've said, ever, and just write what you want.
amathela: ([office] kelly kapoor story hour)


amathela: ([office] like a fairy tale)
Ugh, how am I so behind on everything? I swear, two weeks ago I was writing like crazy and had no real commitments, then I slow down just a tiny bit, and suddenly I have this whole mess of stuff that needs to be finished. I blame this Halloween fic, WHY AREN'T YOU FINISHED ALREADY?

Help me procrastinate relax! Meme ganked from [ profile] pearl_o:

Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started, and I'll write you at least a hundred words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.

I'll also accept requests for stuff that happened off screen during the course of a story :)

Also, sign ups for [ profile] prettylightsfic are now open, which I'm totally excited about. Minimum word count is only 750 words, so if you're into RPF, you should go check it out; two of your requests need to be from a list of nominated fandoms, but the other two can be from anything you like, as long as it's a scripted television show or movie (and crossover requests are allowed). If you'd like to participate, but can't meet the fandom requirements, you can comment at the exemption post, and you may still be able to sign up if there are people to match you with.

I've almost narrowed down the fandoms I want to write/request; right now, I think I'm going to ask for The Office (B.J./Mindy! ♥), Wizards Of Waverly Place, Princess Protection Program, and ... maybe Glee, IDK. Anyway, you should all go there and request some sort of Disney RPF, like maybe David/Selena, or Demi/Selena, or something else that's awesome - High School Musical is even one of the official fandoms. Or, you know. You could request some other kind of RPF, if that's not your thing. But do consider signing up!

Now, I'm going to try to watch Subtle Sexuality from my corner of the world. (THIS IS SOMETHING I NEED IN MY LIFE, OMG.) ETA: No luck! I have tried, like, everything. And you guys, this is something that has Ryan and Kelly, together, in the same room, maybe even interacting! Clearly, I need to watch it. So if anybody could possibly hook me up, I'd probably love you forever.

(Seriously, I don't get why they need to make their webisodes U.S. only. I mean, aired episodes, sure, but web-only content? What the fuck is the point of that?)
amathela: ([office] kelly kapoor story hour)
So, there was an interview with B.J. Novak, and in it was this tidbit, re: Inglorious Bastards.

Except that Novak was sent a script and Tarantino, a fan of The Office, particularly Ryan's awkward exchanges with Kelly, rescheduled.

Quentin Tarantino ships Ryan/Kelly!! This is awesome and hilarious. I swear, if they don't interact more in season six, I will ... keep watching, in the vain hope that someday they will, but I won't be happy about it.

Also, I may have watched Doom. And found it awesome. Yeah, I don't know, either.
amathela: ([office] shoot me now)
Ryan/Kelly!! ♥ So, this has been in the works for, like, forever, and I'm (finally) getting around to posting it. There's a fanmix and accompanying picspam; spoilers up to season five (including promos, extras, and deleted scenes), rated PG-13 for language.

I don't know, I can't explain it )
amathela: ([weeds] andy/nancy)
From [ profile] fannish5: List your 5 favorite unrequited love stories.

(Note: I may be taking a somewhat liberal interpretation of the prompt here. Basically, these are my favourite pairings that are, or were, some version of unrequited.)

Spoilers for Arrested Development, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Miss Match, The O.C., Weeds, and The Office )

So, basically, unrequited love stories are, like, a pretty big thing in television, but I had to stretch the prompt fairly liberally in order to answer it. Because, really, I'm not so much a fan of unrequited love. I mean, pairings where one person is really into the other, and then they pursue them and stuff? I'm all over. But pining is just ... really very much not for me, which is why I didn't include most of the major unrequited love whatevers in my fandoms. And I'm probably forgetting a bunch of pairings I really love, but I can live with that.
