[livejournal.com profile] springtime_gen has been brilliant for me. I got a fic, contrefaire, which I adored from [livejournal.com profile] magnolia_mama and in return I got to write her a fic.

Saying that, it’s time to own up to what I wrote, which was:

Goyle’s War
Author: [livejournal.com profile] meddow
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Characters: Goyle, Ron
Summary: Voldemort has fallen and Hogwarts along with him and now a new wizarding world exists, one that does not seem to have a place for Gregory Goyle.
Author’s Notes: Thank you to both [livejournal.com profile] jadeddiva and [livejournal.com profile] nathaniel_hp for the betas and encouragement.

I never linked to this in my journal when I wrote it over a month ago and thought I should. More of an experiment than anything else.

Night Shift
Author: [livejournal.com profile] meddow
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Summary: It’s just another day at work for Tonks.
Author’s Notes: Written for the January [livejournal.com profile] rt_challenge.

Night Shift

Since I’m now done with my writing course, writing is back to being something I shouldn’t be doing so expect more from me than I’ve been producing over the past few months, hopefully.

Meanwhile, picking up with my Classic Doctor Who watching, I managed to catch The Sontaran Experiment. My flatmate and I spent the entire serial rooting for Harry Sullivan. Don’t quite know why, but we both adore him. Anyway, I really liked it. Loved the Sontaran and hope they are going to make an appearance in the new series at some point.

Though watching Doctor Who with my flatmate can be a very frustrating business. One of my pet peeves in fandom (and life in general) is when excruciating standards are placed on female characters. If a woman shows any sign of weakness or does the slightest thing ‘wrong’ then she is hated (as opposed to male characters who can do some really lousy thinks and still be widely adored) and my flatmate is the worst person for this. She cannot stand it when a female character screams, even when facing a nearly certain horrific death. This is made even worse because she herself screams All The Time (she screamed so loudly and suddenly that I spilled the drink I was holding when we watching Girl in a Fireplace.) So Rose and Sarah Jane get complained at a lot. I’m normally all for Rose criticism when it’s justified (though in this case it’s really not). But how dare she hassle the object of my current girl crush.

In frustration I’ve rented some Leela episodes since I read somewhere that Leela screams only once in her tenure as a companion. What I should have done is rented an episode with one of the more notorious for screaming companions and made her appreciate Sarah Jane and Rose that much more.

(For me at least) it’s the 23rd of December, which is a special day. And no, it has nothing to do with impending holidays or it being the anniversary of the day Van Gogh cut of his ear – it all about me. It is the one year anniversary of the very first piece of fanfic (No One You Can Save) being uploaded onto the net.

To mark the occasion, I thought I would do some sort of special features type thing and reveal some things about some of the fics I’ve written over the past year. [livejournal.com profile] le_parapluie once remarked in a comment to a writing meme I did that while a lot of us met through writing, we very rarely talk about it and I really want to talk about it.

So today we’ve got tales of the original concepts, deleted subplots, ongoing themes, where I got inspiration from, how I managed to get a novel length fic from the first verse of an Oasis song and answers to commonly asked questions such as “WTF was with No One You Can Save?” and “Was Tonks taking her clothes off a supposed to be a sexual thing?” (Yes, yes it was).

Read more... )

Obviously, that hasn’t been everything I’ve written in the past year, but not everything I’ve written has much of a story behind it. I think I’ll leave the floor open, if there are any questions relating to anything I’ve written, fell free to ask them. In case you were wondering where to find any of the mentioned fics, my fanfic master list is here

I bring Harry Potter fic!

You know how I like plots. Think their brilliant and all that. Well, I bring PWP. Except it's not porn. It's better: Percy Without a Plot or Politics Without a Plot; one or the other. And no, this was not in the WiP meme. I've had the bunny in my head for the past few months but didn't get the inspiration to write it until two days ago.

Well, the weather is atrocious: rain, strong wind and hail. I want to be in Europe’s heat wave. And to top it off I have a horrid cold. So no, I really don’t have anything better to do with my Friday night then pimp out my own stuff.

In case anyone on my f-list didn’t follow the [livejournal.com profile] rt_challenge but want to have a look at what I wrote, here’s a quick list.

The Ropes -Drama/Humour - G - Remus is less than happy to find a green-haired, ripped-jeans wearing teenager with a one-syllable nonsense word for a name is his new co-worker.

Paper Aeroplanes - Humor - PG - Sometimes all it requires is a siege from enemy aircraft to get a person to admit their feelings.

The Illusion of Whole - Angst - R - An act in war casts a heavy shadow on Remus and Tonks

Prisoners of War - Angst - PG - Some picnics happen. Others do not.

And I also wrote a 3000 word gigantic piece of Norrington meta, here. I figured that since characterisation is one of my strengths a write, it just may transfer over to an ability to write good character meta.

Now I think I’m going to hide in my bed with my notebook and my duvet and watch Just Like Heaven. I’m in the mood for a mindless and inoffensive romcom.

This is a rather large departure from the way I normally write so I have the need to explain its creation a bit. In other fics I’ve written about insanity, torture, lust and murder, so really sex was the last taboo for me to cover. I had also been toying with this idea for some time since I love all the characters involved (and if I like characters I tend to ship them together). But in the end it was [livejournal.com profile] melusinahp’s wonderful fic Seven Answers to One Question (which if you haven’t read you should go do now, it’s brilliant) gave me the bunny. So, without further ado…

Weasleys and Whiskey
Rating: R
Warnings: Sex.
Pairings: Tonks/Charlie, Tonks/Bill, Fred/Tonks/George, Tonks/Percy, Tonks/Remus, Tonks/Ginny and Tonks/Ron.
Summary: Tonks reflects on a lifetime of encounters with the Weasley siblings.

Just a quick fic I wrote this afternoon. A bit of R/T humour the featuring the Weasley twins. It should be know that I personally hate the idea that Remus is a chocoholic. So while chocolate features in this fic, none of it shall pass the lips of one Remus Lupin.

Hostile Takeover
Author: Meddow
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Summary: Tonks takes on the Chocolate Frog Company. All in the name of love, mind.

Growing (1/18)

Author: Meddow
Rating: PG-13. May change in later chapters.
Parings: Background Andromeda/Ted and Tonks/Remus, but it's pretty much Gen.
Warnings: None
Summary: Neville’s summer plans change when he gets a summer job that could make his dreams come true. However trouble arises when he finds out his employer is the sister of Bellatrix Lestrange. But after the war strikes home he finds himself getting to know the Tonks family much better and a mystery surround his own family is unearthed.

So here we have all the bits and pieces I wrote for the April [livejournal.com profile] rt_challenge

Prompt 21 - Beneath the Sheets PG-13. Remus recovers from his transformations with a little help from a tired Tonks, 1050 words.
Prompt 26 - Dear Harry G. Remus writes to Harry and Meddow writes a happy ending. 355 words.
Prompt 30 - Distraction G. “Every day I miss the person I once was.” 450 words.

Yes, it's the grand total of three. Participation is not a strong point of mine, but I managed to write them all in a way that I don't usually so I'm quite happy with them.

Well, I always try and write unique stories. However, I feel this one may be my most controversial to date (I blame JKR with the whole 'Snape Victorious' chapter which lead to this). I do to some extent ship Snape/Tonks however when I say that, this story is what I mean, it's very one sided and has nothing to do with love, I ship it as an interesting conflict to R/T.

Potential is also the final of my four fics dealing with the relationship between Remus and Tonks between OotP & HBP, the first being Auror Disciplinary Committee (which I’ve decided I do not like very much), Unravelling (which is still my masterpiece and I’m very proud of) and On Loss (formerly known as 'Molly').

Potential
Author: Meddow
Pairings: Snape/Tonks Remus/Tonks
Rating: R
Warnings: Slytherin!Snape, references to sex, possible hints of misogyny
Summary: Severus Snape’s lust would never be satisfied with one woman, he wants them all. But the best candidate for that role is being less than cooperative.
Author's Notes: Thanks to Nathaniel who betaed this piece.

Now up on FA here.

I wonder if my flatmates will mind if I decided to stay in my pyjamas all day? I’ve been away on a trip (and computers and the internet) and had very little sleep; on the other hand I had a great time and discovered my new favourite drink. On the other hand, now I have much catching up to do.

Anyway, I’ve finally put in an entry into the [livejournal.com profile] rt_challenge using the Crowded House prompt. I love the Finn brothers so I just had to write something for that prompt. Shockingly, it's not angst. It's not fluff either, more hurt/comfort, but I'm proud I haven't made anyone miserable for once.

However, the night before I left for my trip I had one of those late night plot bunnies. I’ve never gone into the area of smut before, but I just had to write this.

Convenience
Author: Meddow
Characters: Tonks, Percy
Rating: Mature
Summary: Convenience; that was why she picked him.
Author’s Notes: Debunking the myth that all sex is great sex, one fic at a time. It’s not that I don’t like sex, but I think people have to be more realistic about it; sometimes it’s not very good.

Convenience )
meddow: Lix Storm (Default)
RL is being a bitch, and I have two million things that desperately need doing, and I should really ban myself from the Internet (hah! like that's going to ever happen). But this has been sitting on my hard-drive for a couple of days so I’m going to put it out there. It's gen, which is shocking for me, but also angst, which is not so much. One of these days I will write a lovely happy fic, honest.

Title: Ghosts in the Interrogation Room
Author: Meddow
Warnings: Mature themes
Summary: Sometimes something more than the usual interrogation techniques are required to get information out of suspects. Such as is in the case of Peter Pettigrew.
Author's notes: Big thanks to Nathaniel over on FAP who was a great beta on this fic.

Now a up at Fiction Alley here.
