I had writer's block for a sad long while aka 2016 but recently I put up the edited version of Strandline and a new Van/Stef pwp on AO3.

The pwp was a massive detour that came out of a Vanyel Sulking About His Lovelife scene from my snoverse file, which I figured I could share a bit more of here. It being snoverse only matters in that it's some context for Van wrestling with sexual trauma. Hoping I can liberate something else out of that file soon (there's even half a plot brewing there...)

He wanted to go home )

Some end-of-year deck clearing. I've been kicking these scenes around for way too long, as is evidenced by the fact that I posted the first two for Gilda's birthday. Pillow talk here but no porn. Also alludes to sexual abuse, no details.

Sex never used to mean a thing )

For anyone who liked The Lost One (aka the Krebain/Van slave fic) - it unpacked itself a little more after the challenge was over. Much fluff.

GILDA, WHO IS OLD TODAY <3

I have been poking at four Things That Happened After Strandline; this is two of them. Much awkward, much self-indulgence. :P

What if I'm only prolonging another grievous mistake? )

- but not so much of an ending. If you don't recall, this was started 3 years ago - I've made a few tweaks over time and have simply edited the two old posts, here and here. More polished version of this fic now available here on AO3. eh. Ngl mostly posting this so as not to waste thousands of words of Stef whining. this is my crack.

bleeding and scratching against all I can touch of that compassion )

agghfffghgh this took a while. But it is wrapped up for now? I have a halfassed epilogue lying around but no idea how long that will take to become presentable. At some point I'll also likely polish this fic up for AO3, so please tell me what you think needs fixed (all of it) (etc)

That was madness speaking )

-this one took...a lot longer than I expected. Stuff happened; technology meltdowns, travel, etc. I only wrapped it up due to getting stuck in this god damn blizzard (I KNOW RIGHT. THIS SHIP). Lessons learned; never write 30k of build-up to a bad one-liner. It makes carrying on kinda hard.

Nothing graphic here - bit of softcore. There is also some passing mention of sexual abuse - again, nothing graphic or descriptive.

^^ I only posted part 6 this afternoon, so if this is your first time stopping by today, go read that first. If you just read it? Stretch your legs, get something to drink, and reflect on the fact that I could have left you right there, if only i hadn't been writing this story backwards from the porn all along. seriously if you have any response, type it now before part 7 ruins this fic forever. which it will. eh i just bet it ends in the wrong place. I'll try not to leave it hanging too long.

a perfect stranger )

-->Part 8
thene: Naomi Hunter is very suspicious. (naomi)

Sorry it's been so long. I got stuck on this part and started working on part 7, which is therefore also more or less finished - am hoping to post it later today. Because I can't just leave you with this one. That would be cruel.

time don't belong to me )

-this week in Framing Plots for Men Staring At Each Other. Much dialogue. Probably counts as teasing, sorry Gilda. MUCH purple, wiping blood from my own eyes here.

driveby rec: I am still binge-reading identity porn in DCU - this is so delicious, Regency AU with a really adorable arranged marriage subplot?!?! Lapping this up.


not on the river or your soul )
-->Part 6
thene: A fearsome ninja biscuit poised to attack. But some crumbs have fallen, reminding us of our frailty in the face of time (ninja biscuits)

-i am not 100% on this chapter (there was a scene i kept taking in and out because I can't decide where it goes) but I wanted to post stuff before taking off for the weekend. aghfff this fic is enough of an unwieldy mess that I expect I'll do some doing-over before I ever drop it on AO3 anyway. Until then, more Exposition And Awkwardness it is.

I did not say it was all true )
-->Part 5
thene: Fang, with her back turned.  Fate is not kind to those who leap. (oerba yun fang)

♥ ♥ ♥ Happy birthday Kat ♥ ♥ ♥

More of same. Kind of a longass, higgldy-piggldy chapter. .........This is literally the third time I have written an awful Van/Stef scene involving dead fish. What is wrong with me.


I'm not one for favours )
-->Part 4
thene: Fang, Vanille and the space between them. (awakened)
[personal profile] thene
Something I always knew would eventually happen but nevertheless has not done so before; yesterday on the 87 bus I was standing two feet away from a girl with an LHM. Promise, crisp new copy she'd only just started reading, and in public? Oh babe, is this your first time?

Idk but it prodded me into starting to post this. Been holding off because I'm very not positive of how it's hanging together. I realised a few days ago that all my canon geography is shit and I reaaaallly don't care. It will eventually have sex, and pirates. No really. It will also probably later have discussion of awful dark shit, but nothing too wangsty in its main run. This is the first two chapters; looks like it's going to be another 40k+ long haul oh fuck me.

This contines from here. More backstory headcanon, rambling pillow talk, Stef being terrible, etc.

In which Van complains for 1300 words. IKR, shocking and unprecedented. But it is Sunday and this was all I wanted to do today.

this isn't reason speaking )

because it is AU get-togethers week, okay. I've spent about three weeks staring at the end of this one and it still doesn't feel convincing, but hey at least it has melodrama out the wazoo. I don't think this canon divergence needs much introduction, but, apart from Van & Stef failing at getting together in the canonical fashion, some reversal of roles has occurred.

words he hadn't said )

KAT <3 /fails always

tbph, the first thing I tried to do was a melodramatic AR that totally crash-landed. it's that thing where, if you touch any kind of AU, you realise that this ship is completely terrible and the only reason it's canon is because canon is stupid and cruel and you can't make it happen without being equally stupid and cruel so you ragequit forever ie. almost half a week. So instead I tried for some cute friendbonding fluff, and thus ended up with this grim thing. This ship :(

You thought you could do anything )

I wrote about half of this last year before Gilda posted her way more IC take on this scenario - you remember, the fic that left you unable to even look at a glass of cold water without wanting to cry because THIS AWFUL SHIP. Just finally dug up the draft and finished it. 1400 words, pure smut, Van/self, no redeeming features here.

I've always, always known better. )

hi I finished something else I snippeted a while back. 3000 words, fluff, rambling dialogue, Stef moving in with Van, Van attempting to be a good boyfriend, lots of wild headcanoning about Stef's backstory and Van's issues, foot fetishism. (truth: the latter is where this fic began - I first drafted that part of it in idk I think 2006 but never smoothed the scene out and posted it because who the hell would want to read Van/Stef foot fetish porn. I am so glad to know you guys srsly.)

Miscreations
Have I ever stopped at euphemisms? )
