It's tough when you want to write slash and there's a kitty demanding attention.

Just went through retagging [livejournal.com profile] popspam. Found some interesting posts, fun to look back on.

Sort of debating about adding NCIS people over here. Although [livejournal.com profile] jacie3 has lots of NCIS people friended, none of them has friended [livejournal.com profile] solariana. Not sure why. Eh, the busyness of life. I just think I'd be more likely to use this journal if it was more active.

Let's see, joined up to AO3 and have most of my NCIS stuff up there. I decided to post SOLD! one chapter at a time over there. I think I posted everything else in a day or two and it may have been a bit overwhelming. I didn't think anyone would find it so fast.

It is kind of cool to see the stats page, but I always feel sorry for the poor little story at the bottom. In the 'hits' view that would be Rescued. I like that one because it's so different. My self indulgent historical AU Where The Heart Takes You has gotten a kudo, which is nice (it's one of my favs so I'm rooting for it to be #2 behind SOLD! At least it's in the top five). SOLD! is getting massive hits and a few kudos.

Still debating about the popslash stuff. I'm thinking I may get around to posting some, but not all of it over there. Haven't decided if I want to use the same AO3 account to post both NCIS and popslash stuff.

Out of 104 popslash stories & ficlets, I'm down to the final 22 needing to be posted to [livejournal.com profile] syncalot. I have about 6 more shorter ones to post this week, then get into the longer ones. Being longer, they of course will need more time to go through and will be posted in chapters. In other words, I won't be posting 3 stories a day. Probably more like a few chapters here & there. To get them all posted will likely take quite a while. I don't know, a few weeks or months. Anyway, I'm going to list them here & if any of you have preferences over which ones get posted earlier, feel free to let me know which one's you'd like to see posted first. Otherwise, I'll probably just post in some randomish order.

A little bunny came to me in a dream the other night. It won't work for [livejournal.com profile] poptober_ch, but maybe it will work for [livejournal.com profile] bittybang & I could use the other story for [livejournal.com profile] poptober_ch. Hmmm, the possibilities.

jacieleigh: (pop!tober)
I feel like I'm making some headway over at [livejournal.com profile] syncalot, 64 stories & ficlets posted (65 counting Of Champions & Lovers), with 39 left to go! YAY! I'm actually quite thrilled at my progress.

Writing is another matter.
BittyBang has an idea & a start of 1350 words, but I still have 20,000 to go
Pop!Tober is still without an idea

My [livejournal.com profile] bassez_day story is now at a cliffhanger. Hopefully I can get that resolved before it must be posted! LOL

Now that the authors have been revealed...

I wrote two stories for the Dragon challenge this year. Shortly after it was announced, I got an idea for the first one, On How He Came To Be A Man. The thought was to begin at Chris' birth, so the title would appear to be about him, but then things change at the end. Anyway, it's Chris/Joey and about the bonds of love. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] nopseud for beta duties on this one!

The a few days before the deadline, Pen mentioned that 3 writers had pulled out of the challenge, so I wondered if I could come up with something else, because the more, the merrier, right? I decided to challenge myself by writing about something I normally would not write about. I've always remembered this Blender quote from April 2004:

JC: "I’ve only done mushrooms and smoked pot. And I won’t say that I’ll never do those again, because I have a long life in front of me."

I don't remember any stories dealing with him & his 'shrooms experience, so I thought that could be a nice lead in to a dragon story. I'm not into drugs & pretty much know nothing about them, however, I have been around people on pot & other things way back when. So I did a little online research into the effects of mushrooms and found that they lead to vivid colors and imagry, paranoia, hallucinations and the feeling that one has had one's eyes *opened*. So that's what I was getting at. I thought about what JC might experience on his *trip* & how I could incorporate his love of the other guys along with dragons, dwarves & dolphins.

My other challenge to myself was to not change one word of the story once it was written. It would stand as it came out. Which it pretty much did, save for correcting a couple of typos & adding in a couple sentences near the end that had been in my head. The story didn't make as much sense without them. Not that it has to, because it's drugs & they don't make much sense anyway! I wrote this all in one night, about 3 hours, the night before stories were due.

The point is, that he loves his friends & they love him. That his friends are his world. The story is Breathe.

Congrats to the two people who guessed that I wrote Breathe, [livejournal.com profile] puszysty & [livejournal.com profile] turps33!

Yikes! I heard a neighbor out mowing his lawn today. That means I have to start doing that, too. *sigh*

I've taken a couple months off from writing, so now I'm trying to decide what I want to start back up with. I have the epic Slave Fic, the Chris/Justin Lynncest story, which I have finally titled (YEA! I always feel better about stories once I find the title that *fits), and then there's a couple bunnies that keep hopping around. The most prominent one is for a 4th installment of the Ocean Tales series. Not to mention a handful of other WIPs in various stages of undoness. I think I'll watch the ballgame instead! *G*

Litte CK kitty has become quite the lap kitty! Such a Sweetie!

  • Just wanted to wish those who celebrate Thanksgiving, safe travels and a happy holiday!

  • Every Thanksgiving I like to dust off this gem for sharing:
    Thanksgiving: TrickC Style
    Pairing: Chris/JC
    Summary: Chris and JC go shopping together for Thanksgiving dinner.
    Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] joshysleo at [livejournal.com profile] fic_requests: JC/Chris with them planning and/or shopping for a large family dinner. approx. 850 words

  • SeSa is moving along fairly well *happy dances*.

  • 30 days left before SeSa posting deadline *flails*

  • I am soooo not ready for Christmas!

  • Look! I learned to make bullet things! *Squeals with glee*

  • My weather pixies tell me it's colder here than in Chicago! Brrr! And it's been raining all day long *pouts*

  • Kitty is having a couple of bad days *cuddles her*

jacieleigh: (1)
I missed my weather pixie from the other journal, so he's back! Chris J is proudly displaying the weather where I live and he has a (yet to be named) buddy to keep him company *G*. His new friend displays the weather in Chicago.

I subtitled my fic journal ;)

Kitty is blissfully zonked out in front of the space heater (which I turned off a few minutes ago, hee!)

I have relented. After a bit of poking and prodding from a couple people, I did sign up for MTYG this morning. What can I say? I'm easy like that! Let the jitters begin.

I bought a pizza last night and was delighting in the thought of pizza for breakfast, but no, I ate it ALL last night. *sigh*

Also posted Chapters 5-7 of Of Champions And Lovers at [livejournal.com profile] syncalot this morning. With each week's posting, it brings me closer to doomsday, the day when I have nothing new to post *facepalm*. When I started posting this as a series, I was soooooo certain I could finish it by the end of the year, but now I'm not so sure. Time will tell.

Well, it has been a long time, hasn't it? :)

Anyway, I have this urge to finish up some of my WIPs, most of which seem to be 1-2 pages, painfully shorter than they were intended to be. So I pulled out this old Chris/Justin thing I started in 2005 (with visions of Lynncest) and couldn't find anything to add, so that's back in the file. Then I read through the rest and found one I felt like working on. And I finished it! From 2400 words to 30,300 in a matter of hours.

This was originally being worked on for a Reunion Challenge I think also back in 2005. I had completed the beginning (Part 1) and the ending (Part 5), then added the creamy center filling (Parts 2, 3 & 4) today. I confess I did add one line to Part 5 to link it up with something I added in Part 2. And 3. It's now posted at [livejournal.com profile] syncalot for those interested. It's one of my very few intentional non-AU efforts.

It's Been A Long Time
Pairing: JC/Lance
Summary: Lance reminisces on a flight back to Orlando for their 20 year anniversary tour, where he intends to divulge his true feelings to JC.

And so they say, all good things must come to an end...

Like everyone else, I am so sorry to see DWNOGA go. The challenge and the lovely ladies who ran it were always top class, so much so, it was a pleasure to participate and something I looked forward to all year.

Aside from all the wonderful stories to read, there was all the bonding over the stress of the assignment requests and the deadline to contend with. I remember many fond chats over the days, when I should have been writing. The first year I wrote, my computer crashed and I lost my story and had to start over. Then I didn't like it, so I wrote a different one. LOL

Anyway, Many, Many Thanks to Pet & Georgina for making our holidays sparkle for so many years and for bringing together so many friendships.

On the writing front, I've just posted chapters 14-16 of The Chariot Race over at [livejournal.com profile] syncalot, which leaves the final chapters to be posted next week. I have enough of Of Champions And Lovers to post through November, but it looks like I need to either get my ass in gear and start writing more or post fewer chapters each week. I have managed to write about 1000 words this week and every litte bit helps.

For now I'm catching up with all the Meerkat Manor episodes for the season, so far anyway.
