Fic prompt fun!

This headline leaped out at me on Yahoo, and I thought it would make a great fanfic prompt:

Zeke's celebration dumbfounded Salvation Army executives: "When he jumped in it we were so excited!"

I have no idea what one would do with that, but I thought I'd toss it out there in case it sparks something, LOL!

I'm a big fan of Wil Wheaton. He's pretty damn cool. I read his blog, but I must have missed this...thing here.

Behold Wesley Crusher: Teenage Fuck Machine - A Kindle Book

Just so you know, that's a link to i09's, um, review of the "book". There's an excerpt. It's... yeah, the only term adequate for this is "fan fiction"**. Because there's just no way it could have gotten published otherwise.

From the article:

an edifying fable in which the Enterprise's resident rascal has a sexual awakening during a threesome with a barbed-penised cat man. Also, Captain Jean Luc Picard is walloped in the gonads.

If I had one of those benighted Satan's toys, I'd download this is a HEARTBEAT. Especially since the price is Just. So. Right.

**I hope it's obvious that I don't mean this as a knock on fan fiction. I do write the stuff, after all. But this thing is so emblematic of a certain type of fanfic that there isn't anything else to call it.

Taking a look at my home page on AO3, and I have 83 works posted there. Holy shit, 83. And that's not even all I've written, just the stuff I wanted to archive. Man, I had no idea I'd even written that much stuff.

That conundrum

Yeah, so I've decided to keep an eye on the invitation queue at AO3 in hopes that they'll open it up again. I'm not going to link up my handles; I'll look for a chance to open a new account under my Keanu name, Sparrowhawk. (LeGuin, FYI.) When that happens, I'll let y'all know in case anyone's curious. I can whip some fine meringue around a pretty man, not to get calluses patting myself on the back or anything.

A conundrum

I have an interesting little problem which I'd like to get opinions on, if people have anything to say. This is especially germane for anyone who's got stuff posted on AO3 or other big sites.

LOTR was not the first fandom I wrote in. For a couple of years before that, I was writing in the Keanu fandom. It was all het, mostly character-based but some RPF. (In the Keanu fandom, it was basically ALL wish fulfillment fantasy, so nobody cared about that whole Mary Sue business. All that mattered was that it was good, whatever it was.) The gals reading my stuff did like it a lot, and I had a lot of fun with it.

(Side note: When I talk about My Muse? Keanu is the default. He dresses up as different guys - the latest one is obvious to all of you, I'm thinking - but in between times, when whatever obsession I've got fades off, He goes back to being that pretty half-breed Dorian Gray figure, with the down-pillow voice and restless hands and utterly spectacular smile. (Seriously, you have no idea of the wattage. It's a "you gotta be there" thing. It's blinding.) Before Keanu came along, it had been nearly ten years since I had crushed on a guy, so he kinda reset my clock, I guess. Regardless, when my Muse wanders back in after a dry time, that is the outfit he's wearing. Just FYI.)

So I've got this cache of stuff I wrote which is nowhere else on the web. Originally it went out through a Yahoo group that's defunct, then a few pieces went up here and there at friends' sites, which are also all gone now. So I'm thinking I'd like to post the stuff.

The question is how.

I'm very fond of these pieces. I think they're hot - they certainly got me off, they got other people off, and rereading some of them, I still get off on them. I think the ones that I would post (because I wouldn't post them all, oh no way, some are way too personal) would be enjoyable for anyone looking for that stuff. The thing is, I don't know if I want to embrace that earlier identity, to connect it with the handle I have now. I have no idea why I balk at this because frankly, who gives a shit? I really shouldn't think it's important, but somehow it is.

But then I think of the people I liked in that fandom, and how cool it would be if one of them was still around in it and bumped up against my stories. I think of how terribly much I miss Cat, and how great Shell's sci-fi porn was, and how comforting Chrys was when Nyquil went after me, and how Red and I would bounce bits of our MAAN fics at each other, and I get sad at how we lose each other, you know?

So I'm in a quandary here. Should I post them and risk having my handle connected with what would likely be seen as Mary Sue nonsense? Or should I keep them back to myself and risk losing the tiny chance of reconnection? It's not a life-changing decision, but it's something that's been hanging there for some time now.

Because I really do like those stories.

Any thoughts?

Here's something fun. If books could have sex, what would they be like in bed?

You don't fuck The Fountainhead. The Fountainhead fucks you.

Lots of fun in the comments with people chiming in on their favorite books. Here's what I wrote for LOTR:

Last night with The Lord of the Rings was intense and unique. His attention to detail made you feel like you’d been transported to another world. But now you’re in bed alone, and he stands at the window watching all of history sweep across the landscape with his immortal eyes, unable to do anything to stop it.

There's tons of fanfic about the characters, but I can't remember the last time I saw a fic about the book itself. So there's my little attempt.

I am currently working on a Pike/McCoy fic that has been playing hide-and-go-seek for the past two months with me. I really really like it, but it's taking its time about flowing out of my hand. Which is par for the course, the Muse being the coy bastard He is.

But it looks like this one really will end up done. Every time I think it's not, I get another piece and it fits together well. It's very sexy (at least I think so), and the angst isn't as overwhelming as is usual in my fics. It's even got a little funny in it, imagine that!

What I really love is that if I manage to squeeze it out, it looks like it's part of a series. Now that is unusual for me - I don't think I've ever written any linked stories before.

Wish me luck! *squee*

[ profile] weepingcock has done it again!

Gay, Bejeweled Nazi Bikers of Gor

For those of you who have not had the...pleasure... the Gor novels, by John Norman (pseudonym of a real live Harvard English professor!), are a series of hideously written scifi-fantasy novels about an "alternate Earth" called Gor, in which manly men, who are manly because they know the True Way of Things, that way being the way that allows them to be manly, unlike the unmanly men of Earth who are definitely NOT manly, or men, but are of Earth, and not of Gor...where was I? Oh yeah. The Gor novels are about the struggles of the manly populace to rule over the slaves, who are women, mostly, because it is the True Way of Things for women to be slaves, beautiful slaves. In silk. And collars. Beautiful collars, which are beautiful because they are slave collars, placed around the necks of the beautiful slaves by their manly owners...DAMMIT.

*ahem* Start again!

For those of you who have not had the pleasure, the Gor novels are exceedingly wordy books about war and sex and gender relations on a planet called Gor. THAT'S ALL.

But they really are wonderful, in that Theissian Eye of Argon way. Meaning they're actually awful, but will convulse you with laughter. Incessantly turgid, and yet strangely torpid, every page awash in this hellaciously hairy prose as purple as a ten-inch hardon. Just gloriously, self-consciously pumped up with Importance. They're collector's items now, so they don't come cheap, but if you ever see one, jump on it. They're truly worth the coin.

Oh, and the [ profile] weepingcock entry linked above? Is to a parody that is utterly BRILLIANT in its evocation of Norman's...writing. Read and be choked with laughter. You'll wonder "Can the original really be this bad?" Rest assured, it can.

Oh yes. It really, really can.

P.S. In the comments is the link to Houseplants of Gor, yet another incredible parody.

This evening, Spike and I were having one of our animated conviviala, as we are wont to do. (That woman is Discussion Gold, by the way - a conversation with her is never wasted time.) And we were commenting on the fact that, were it not for the Tolkien family Old Guard sitting on the canon like a cop defending his donut, there would doubtless be literally scores of books written in Middle-Earth by now. If not before, then certainly after the films had begun to come out; I imagine that the New Line suits are fairly annoyed at not being able to get in on the publishing action, and with such a ready and willing pool of potential providers, who could blame them?

Ruminations on the phenomenon of Published Fanfic )

Step right up. The microphones are on.
