sophinisba: Wee Gwen admires wee Merlin's magic! (gwen merlin by el_jamon)
I'm having a really good time with [livejournal.com profile] summerpornathon so far!

Although my previous team was also awesome I am really psyched to be on Team Gluttony this year because I have a bunch of friends there. In the past Team Gluttony has almost always won the tournament but now that I've joined we're in fifth place. COINCIDENCE? No, but it's cool, none of our stories have won prizes yet but we keep finding out afterwards that we voted for each other without knowing it. It is exciting for me to be making fanworks and interacting with people regularly after more or less dropping out of fandom for a year and then writing some seriously unpopular fics earlier this year.

Of the three main entries I've done so far I only really like the second, and I'm feeling especially insecure about my porn writing abilities, but I also feel like I have the chance to keep improving as the fest goes on. Here are the first two reposted on the AO3 (the third is anonymous until next weekend, and there will be four more):

In Freya's Bed (748 words) by sophinisba
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Merlin (TV)
Rating: Mature

Summary: (731): Look I know it's late and I hope this doesn't wake you up but I feel like you should know that I'm sleeping on my couch in my own apartment so that my friend can get laid in my bed, and I would do the same for you. (http://textsfromlastnight.com/Text-Replies-31267.html)

The Super Part I Can Handle (744 words) by sophinisba
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Merlin (TV)
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Freya/Gwen (Merlin)
Summary: Freya's secret identity is less mysterious to Gwen than she thinks.

In past years I've struggled a lot with the bonus challenges that happen between Tuesday and Thursday every week, but this year I'm really proud of myself for finishing the first three right away on Tuesday night:
1. a snippet of Will & Merlin friendship fic, canon AU
2. some Gwen meta inspired by the movie 20 Feet from Stardom
3. a ficlet about Vivian reading romance novels, late 20th century AU

And then also this week, unrelated to pthon, [personal profile] livrelibre let me know that they'd made a podfic of The Archer's Aim, a Hunger Games poem that I wrote two years ago. I listened to it tonight and it was awesome! I also hope to make a couple podfics soon, but then I often hope that. We shall see. :)
