sophinisba: Hunith and Merlin at a campfire (hunith merlin by slightlytookish)
I usually do a fic year in review meme around this time, but in 2015 I only wrote five ficlets and I already listed and reflected on them back in September. In order to have a graph to post I went ahead and added up the wordcounts for fics I'd posted in previous years and confirmed that, yes, this was the least I've written since I started in 2005.

fic by year, fandom, and wordcount

I was definitely surprised by the big numbers back in 2006 and 2007. And there was even more LotR and Faculty podfic I wrote and posted back then but that doesn't show up here because I never finished them or posted them to the AO3. I was also surprised by how multifannish I was from the beginning -- I'm used to thinking I fell for the hobbits in the beginning, then sort of lost interest and wandered in the wilds of multifannishness for a while until I fell for Merlin. But there was Faculty and Firefly mixed in all along. And back in 2007 I would like, watch a movie or an episode of Lost and then write a fic -- it didn't matter that I wasn't *in* the fandom. I was also a little surprised to see that I was never as prolific in Merlin fandom as I had been earlier.

So anyway, I didn't write much fic at all this year but I was happy to have [livejournal.com profile] summerpornathon and [livejournal.com profile] team_gluttony bring me back to fandom and its joys for a few weeks. Alas, the excitement did not continue and when I got within a few days of the [livejournal.com profile] merlin_holidays deadline in November I realized there was no way I could write the fic I'd promised (even though I had an excellent assignment). I hope I'll write some more Merlin fic again at some point though I'd be too embarrassed to sign up for that challenge again. :(

I made eight short podfics this year. The last five haven't been posted here before:
I can't do a graph comparing this to previous years because I haven't finished (or gotten anywhere close to finishing) archiving my old podfics at the AO3 so the numbers aren't handy. (I used to do a lot more but whatever.) I like that podfic lets me continue to be multifannish, that I stay in touch with other podficcers through Twitter, and that I can contribute to the community in small, sporadic ways like recording a five-minute thing for the the Awesome Ladies Podfic Anthology ("The Mechanic") or the Informal Twitter Podfic Exchange ("Wings" and "Learn to Fly"). I did have a horrible time with technical issues "Someone Special" but have since acquired a nicer microphone and gotten a little more practice with the latest version of GarageBand so I'd like to make more podfic in 2016, perhaps a few more substantial things for Femslash February.

I'm not going to make any fannish resolutions for this year because I don't want to feel bad about failing at them like I did last year.

The latest round of [livejournal.com profile] summerpornathon wrapped up yesterday. It was shorter this year and I didn't make anything much for the bonus challenge, so I just have these five fics, all Merlin fandom and approximately 750 words each. Title links go to the fics on the AO3.

thoughts )

Just like last year pornathon leaves me wanting to write more Merlin fic and [livejournal.com profile] merlin_holidays is nicely timed. I will sign up again and really hope that more multishippers decide to join this year!
sophinisba: Hunith and Merlin at a campfire (hunith merlin by slightlytookish)
fic by year, fandom, and wordcount

I made more fic in 2014 than the year before! That is not to say that I made a lot or that I feel like I'm on the upswing, creativity-wise, but hey it's a new year, let's have a list and some graphs and commentary! I'm not doing a separate meme for podfic or vids this year because I made very little of them.

List of previously posted fanworks, January through September )

NOT PREVIOUSLY POSTED ON THIS JOURNAL

October
-Pets (The Remix As Nature Intended), Merlin fic with many pairings
-Her Masterpiece Is the Mess Inside You, Arthur/Gwen and Gwen/Morgana podfic

November
nothing

December
-Dragons Aren't Extinct, Arthur and Morgana gen fic

I'm not going to answer the old meme questions about which ones I like best and all that, because there aren't really that many to choose from, and because I'm kind of tired of thinking about those questions. Basically I liked everything I made but didn't feel like I broke through any big boundaries with things I hadn't done before, and nothing I did was popular. Anyway here are some more graphs and thoughts.

statistics!! )

So idk, feelings are weird? I kind of don't want to write fic ever again? Or make podfic? But also I want to do both more often? I've been sketching a bit for the last couple weeks and would like to learn to draw fannish characters, and I have some leftover Merlin vid ideas. Also this spring it will be 10 years since I started participating in fandom and I think it would be a shame to stop now.

So here are some resolutions that are more about staying in touch than anything else. For every month in 2015:
-make another journal post that is not a fanwork
-comment on a journal post by someone else that is not a fanwork
-post a fanwork that I made
-comment on a fanwork by someone else
-answer all new comments on my fanworks!
-repost my old podfics on the webspace generously provided by [personal profile] paraka and create pages at the AO3, 20 per month until I'm caught up

I'm not sure I've ever had a year where I posted a fanwork every month but I mean, I can always make time for a five-minute podfic, can't I? And, if I'm going to, my best chance to record something this month is probably going to be today. Hmm.

[personal profile] roughandtumble aka [livejournal.com profile] flammablehat and I were talking yesterday about how we missed writing Merlin fic, so we decided to go back to doing it! We set up a comm to challenge ourselves/each other to write a short fic every week, like we used to do during [livejournal.com profile] summerpornathon. We would love it if others would join us, whether for making fic or other fanworks.

The comm is [community profile] merlinblitz and the first prompt is "rainwater".

Yay, Record More Podfic Month is a lovely challenge where people encourage each other to work on podfic projects every day. I won't have time this November but I encourage others to give it a try. (Also, yay mods for including a simple image description in the banner linking code.)

Just a few days left for the main round of [community profile] kink_bingo. I am one square away from finishing a second bingo but I think I'll need to write it as a fic in a fandom I haven't written before, and that's scary and I'm behind on work etc so I keep not getting it done. :/ I still think I can do it though.

Title: AUs and Kink
Author: [personal profile] toft
Reader: [personal profile] sophinisba
Fandom/genre: General fandom writing-focused meta
Summary: "But the AU can be a particularly powerful and interesting tool for exploring kink, for a number of reasons. I'm going to give several examples of this below, in the hope that more people will think about putting AUs into their kink and kink into their AUs. I'm going to talk specifically about AUs that might be useful for kink bingo - that is, ways to use worldbuilding to kinky purpose."
Reader's notes: [personal profile] toft wrote this as a ramp-up post for the latest round of [community profile] kink_bingo back in June and it was awesome, and I thought right away that it would be neat to read out loud, but it took me a couple months to get around to asking the author about making a few adjustments to the text for an audio version (mainly replacing "/" with "and" or "or" but a few other little things too) and then a few more weeks to actually make it. I had a harder time getting the words out than I generally do with podfic, so the raw recording was more than twice as long as the finished product and the editing took a long time considering there's nothing very fancy in it. (This is not really surprising and certainly doesn't mean there's anything wrong with Toft's writing. In podfic I usually get tripped up a lot during the early parts where there's a lot of exposition and/or dialogue. Once the porn starts it's usually poetic and lovely and smooth sailing unless there are sex noises.)
Anyway, there are parts of this reading that I like a lot, and if you haven't read the essay I encourage you to check out either the text or audio version.
I am using this for the wildcard on my [community profile] kink_bingo card, and will claim it for the new "spaces scenes and settings" kink when I post at the comm.

The new round of [community profile] kink_bingo is open for signups! You can read the short version of how to play and sign up for a card if you want!

I plan to add links and banners to this post as I make things, like I did with my cards and banners collection post last year. :)

I have this card for myself:

sophinisba's kink_bingo card )

[livejournal.com profile] flammablehat (aka [profile] roughandtouble) and I also signed up as a team in hopes of getting some inspiration for [community profile] pod_together and possibly other projects.

Team Soflambeau's kink_bingo card )

And I got a second card for myself! )

I feel a little lost with my own card, everything seems doable (most of them I've done in past rounds) but nothing really jumps out at me right now as a good place to start. In the past I've filled whatever squares came easiest in whichever order (so I always do way more than five before I get to my first bingo), but I feel like I ought to try being more strategic with Achievements this year, but then I don't know I don't know.

On the other hand, almost ever square in the team card strikes us as perfect for Arthur/Gwen, which is the pairing both of us are excited about working on right now. So that is pretty fabulous, I feel like we lucked out!

achievements and banners! (nsfw) )

I feel good about the things I've been accomplishing in fandom lately! On Sunday I posted one of my longest Merlin fics and submitted my [community profile] podficbigbang project - posting for that should start very soon. I doubt I'll ever take on a podfic this large again, but it's been a good experience, and one nice effect is that now I can look at a 10K fic and thing, pshaw, that's nothing. In fact, I recorded one that's a little under 9K yesterday and am hoping to finish the edits and post it today. With that I will have only one square left to fill on my kink_bingo card before the June 15th Amnesty deadline. That square is guns, and I would like to fill it with a podfic, fic, or poem about a character with a disability. I would be grateful for podficcable story recs or writing prompts! You can also help out other people who are trying to meet their amnesty goals over at the Amnesty Boogaloo reverse promptfest at the comm.

kink_bingo and hc_bingo musings )

[livejournal.com profile] summerpornathon signups are open!!! Closing Thursday night! I hope lots of my friends will sign up, though to be honest I also have some hope that we might have a slightly smaller group this year, which would make teams more intimate and reading more manageable. Super excited for the reading and writing, not so much for the pages full of flashing gifs but what are ya gonna do. :)

Lots of activity planned for International Day of Femslash coming up on July 14th! It would be neat if we got a ton of femslash at the pornathon that week, though it would be better if we got a ton of femslash at the pornathon every week. :D

sophinisba: Merlin smiling with forest background (ep. 1.04) (merlin smiling by miakun)
You know how the other day I was saying there wasn't a lot of overlap between my popular fics and my favorite fics? One that comes pretty close to having that overlap is We'll Slide Down the Surface of Things, in which our characters love each other very much but being in a relationship is hard, and some people are queer and some people are straight and then really strange porn happens. It's at number 14 if you sort my fics by hitcount and I went ahead and tagged it as One of My Favorites last week.

Well THAT, my friends, is the fic that some fabulous person decided to remix for this year's Remix Redux! It is from Merlin's POV and instead of focusing only his feelings about Arthur and Gwen it goes and does the sex scene my fic only mentioned in a throwaway line: LANCELOT/MERLIN with Merlin temporarily having girl parts!!! Oh my god their relationship is imperfect and Lancelot is chivalrously concerned for Merlin's virtue and comfort but so so so hot for him and it's glorious.

We'll Sink to the Surface and Hold On. by anonymous, Lancelot/Merlin with Arthur/Gwen (+ unrequited Arthur/Merlin and Gwen/Lancelot), 2320 words, Explicit.

I always angst so much about Remix but it is still the best! I love remixing and being remixed so much. Like all of the fics at Remix2012 and Remix Madness 2012 (including the two I wrote, heh), this one could use a lot more love! There are 16 Merlin fics including several about our awesome ladies of Camelot (not only Gwen and Morgana but also Freya and Hunith) and hundreds of stories in other fandoms. Go read and be generous with your kudos and comments!

Oh, and I think I'm pretty guessable but if you guess what I wrote I will podfic a fic of your choosing if I ever finish Arcane Asylum, or if that's not what you're into I will just tell you you're great.
sophinisba: Gwen's lips and Morgana's lips with gauzy fabric (gwen morgana lips by ravenclawbest)
I did this meme just over a year ago, and I thought it would be fun to come back and compare how it looks this year! My top ten fics by AO3 hitcounts:

list )

thoughts on this list and last year's list )

The other day [personal profile] anatsuno pointed out a great Tumblr post by [personal profile] helens78 about the taboo against saying we like and our proud of our own work. Helens said it would be great if more authors would use the One of My Favorites tag on the AO3 and I agree, so tonight I went in and added it to four of my fics. I had decided to limit myself to five and I can't quite decide between two others. :) And none of those six fics overlap with the ten that are here, but that is okay.

So far only 135 works at the AO3 have that tag. Why not add it to a few of your stories, if you archive there? A lot of readers would like to know about them.

If you are a fan of the AO3 and can afford to do so, consider donating to the OTW! (I just accidentally typed OT3. Seriously, that comes to my fingers more easily than OTW or OTP. My OT3 is in fic #6 in the list above.)


Also also, the OTW is hosting an AO3 Tag Wrangling Open House from 19:00 to 21:00 UTC on April 22nd. In my timezone that is Sunday afternoon or an excellent time for fannish discussion, before frantic Sunday night catchup for the school week and frantic last-minute Remix edits. As much as I love the archive, I rebel a little every time I post a fic because the canonical Merlin character tags are ALL WRONG from my perspective. I am really curious as to why they've chosen to do things that way (and whether they might change it omg!) and also lots of other things about tags. Tags!
sophinisba: Gwen looking sexy from Merlin season 2 promo pics (merlin ot3 by melody_icons)
It's possible I've written fewer words of fic this year than any year since I've been in fandom, and most of that has been short PWPs (plus a few other ficlets that didn't have porn or plot). However, I would never skip the fic year in review meme because I love it, plus it is nice to compare from year to year.

The December mini-challenge is to create tiny bingos: five tiny fills in a line. They can be fics or meta or podfics up to 100 words, a single icon, 1 or 2 recs, etc. This is open to everybody, whether or not you've played [community profile] kink_bingo before. Think signing up for a challenge is a little intimidating or feel bad because you never did anything for the card you have before? Just stop by the comm and choose a line from one of the communal bingo cards.

I got really excited about this challenge yesterday and I came up with this plan to write five drabbles about Lancelot, each a different AU.

irreverent observation about 4x09 )

Only then once I started trying to write them I realized that doing an AU and a kink in 100 words is really hard, so I decided to make each one 500 words instead! Here are the two I've finished so far. Maybe I will also do a line of drabbles later!

Title: Only that I Am Yours
Fandom: Merlin
Wordcount: 500
Rating: strong PG-13
Pairing(s): Lancelot/Morgana
Contains: consensual mind control
Notes: Vague spoilers for 4x09. For the free square on my second [community profile] kink_bingo card.
Summary: Modern AU: Whenever being around his friends starts to hurt too much, Lancelot goes to Morgana.
Link: Read Only that I am Yours at the AO3

Title: As a Groom
Fandom: Merlin
Wordcount: 500
Rating: strong PG-13
Pairing(s): Freya/Lancelot
Contains: n/a
Notes: Vague spoilers for 4x09. For the "washing/cleaning" square on my second [community profile] kink_bingo card.
Summary: Religious AU: Everyone who enters this temple begins life anew.
Link: Read As a Groom at the AO3

Also yesterday I posted 2500 words of Gwen & Merlin gen (with a bit of background Arthur/Gwen and hints of Gwen/Morgana) over at this weekend's [community profile] camelot_fleet party. It was meant to be the prologue of an epic Gwen fic that I was working on after season 2, but it more or less stands on its own as a quiet reveal and a coda for 2x13.

(I used to write trufax drabbles and genfic all the time, ha ha ha.)

Yesterday [personal profile] eruthros and [personal profile] thingswithwings posted the Round Four Prize Announcements, including the Arbitrary Mod Prizes. This works as an arbitrary recs list of some of the exciting things posted at [community profile] kink_bingo this June-September, and I was thrilled to get a prize for Best Praxis for my essay about the kinkiness of podfic and my verbally humiliating Azula/Ty Lee podfic. Thank you mods! Look at the sexy banner [personal profile] eruthros made me under the cut!

prize banner )

I am also getting ready to run a podfic for beginners workshop at the [livejournal.com profile] pornspiration comm on LJ next week. I was thinking a series of posts over the course of the week. Let me know if you have suggestions or would like to help out (or make a promo banner)! Anyone over 18 can join the comm, they just keep posts locked for the sake of teambuilding and all.

some pro-Dreamwidth anti-LJ grumbling )

La la la. Oh hey speaking of user interfaces, how about the new gmail? I'm keeping my sophinisba account the same for now (cherry blossoms!) but on my other account I switched to the new look and the Oceans theme. It's so pretty! I love the bit of translucency and the way the modules sometimes seem to be floating over the background - I find it very soothing (even though I don't like being on boats etc. in real life).

Okay so back to podfic talk! The reason I want to do that workshop next week is that it'll overlap with [community profile] pod_aware/[livejournal.com profile] pod_aware! Mod [personal profile] paraka and friends have been working on some podfic meta podcasts that will be posted then, and I'm looking forward to hearing how those turn out. (I will tell you a secret: I spend a lot more time listening to non-fandom podcasts these days than podfics. I find the conversation style easier to follow when I'm riding the bus or whatever than a fic. There are times when I listen to a lot of podfic but I am not doing that now.) [personal profile] paraka would also like to emphasize that you don't have to be a podfic maker to participate in this. You might be someone who likes to listen to podfic, or an author who is okay with people making podfics of their work. As far as I understand it, all you have to do is post something during the week (the something could be a fic or a picspam and doesn't need to be podfic-related) and include a little blurb and a link to a post at the comm. It should be fun and will help us out.

This November, I resolve to complete a Size Matters Bingo for the middle row of my second [community profile] kink_bingo card, using four podfics and one new Merlin fic. What are your goals for next month?
sophinisba: Lancelot with text: Chicks dig scars (lancelot scars by miakun)
Yay, that was a great fest! I had fun, read a lot of fic by lots of different people, and did very well with my main goal: writing porn quickly!

1. Hush (Gwen/Lancelot)
2. Dusk in the Market Square (Aredian/Merlin)
3. If Lost (Freya/Morgana)
4. Believe This Is Real (Freya/Merlin)
5. Deep Breathless Black (Merlin/Morgana/octopus)
6. Jump In, Jump In (Gwen/Merlin)
7. Aglain's School for Gifted Youngsters (Aglain/Morgana)

Middle part of Uther's leather costume, text: [uthercentric.dreamwidth.org]

[personal profile] yue_ix and I are starting up an [community profile] uthercentric comm here on Dreamwidth! Post your Uther fanworks in any genre or medium! And please feel free to post or link to older stuff - that's what Yue and I will be doing! De-anon on those kink meme fills and pornathon entries, guys! You are among friends!

The mod of [livejournal.com profile] utherxtheboys (Merlin/Uther, Arthur/Uther, and Arthur/Merlin/Uther comm) deleted their journal a while back, and we thought it would be nice to have one place that would also welcome fans of Morgana/Uther, Uther/Ygraine, and other ships, as well as Uther gen, solo Uther, etc. Anthony Stewart Head stuff is good too as long as it's with other Merlin actors or related to this part of his life/career.

Oh, and if you're not a regular Dreamwidth reader you can still keep up with the postings by adding the [livejournal.com profile] uthercentric feed!




Related to my previous post, this was a great week for tentacles in Merlin fandom!
-[livejournal.com profile] marguerite_26 posted an adorable Gwaine/Merlin-with-surprise-tentacle ficlet, also for the [livejournal.com profile] summerpornathon/[livejournal.com profile] kinkme_merlin collaboration
-[livejournal.com profile] lolafeist posted Some Kind of Strength, a great dark tentacle rape fic with lovely angst and Arthur&Merlin h/c, written for the [livejournal.com profile] help_japan auction.

And, on the off-chance that you're looking for more Gwen/Morgana period!sex, [personal profile] fitz_y's modern vampire AU (also pornathon/kmm) is delightfully porny and much more upbeat than my dubcon.

In general, if you've been interested in pornathon fills but scared to take on the great wall of porn where everything is mixed together, last week's round is a convenient one because all the entries were posted to their respective prompt threads at [livejournal.com profile] kinkme_merlin, where the code mice have archived all 71 of them on the ...summer.pornathon.2011 tag, complete with pairing, kink, and warning labels, and prompts that work as summaries.




I am feeling good about being creative and participating in fandom lately! I've written for all 6 of the pornathon challenges and after the confusing first couple weeks I've kept up with the other participation stuffs. I had a really hard time getting an idea for the most recent pornathon challenge ("Happy Endings", no angst allowed) but I wrote something at the last minute yesterday afternoon and at the moment am really happy with it. I've started in on reading this week's entries and am enjoying them way more than I expected to. I've also written a few other short things and made a lot of podfics.

I've filled 17 of my 25 bingo squares and have a something almost ready for #18. Last night I updated my kink_bingo cards and banners (nsfw) post with links to the things I've made and banners for my Achievements so far this round! Looking at them all make me really happy! I am not feeling CONSUMED with a great story I want to tell or anything like that, but I am accomplishing all these little things, getting my participation points, crossing off my bingo squares, and interacting with people regularly. Things are going to get a lot busier in my offline life soon but right now I'm having a really good time here.
sophinisba: Gwen looking sexy from Merlin season 2 promo pics (greed by moiraes)
I think I am finally starting to get the hang of [livejournal.com profile] summerpornathon! At first I wasn't seeing the entries because of a filtering mistake and then I wasn't seeing them because I'm just not on LJ that much and anyway I was feeling very angsty about not fitting in and about my writing not being good enough or have enough penises in it or whatever. I did create [syndicated profile] summerpornathon_feed so the entries would show up on my Dreamwidth reading list, but that's not ideal in that these posts with 9000 (?) words of fic show up uncut. But it's okay because I'm getting used to the schedule now so I know when to expect stuff. Also having the results of the first challenge go up on Friday made everything make a lot more sense to me.
