Title: somewhere i have never traveled, gladly beyond...
Author: Me, ladychi
Rated: Teen for profanity and brief mentions of sexy behavior.
Fandom and pairing: New Girl, Nick/Jess
Summary: Nick and Jessica take a roadtrip. Daytime Nick and Nighttime Nick fight for who has control.

A post Season-Two finale fic.

The author takes limited responsibility for the amount of profanity in this story. The characters in my head are all potty-mouthed. And sexually active.


“No. I think we should do this. I think we should have kinky sex at a cheap motel. I think we should go buy clothes at the thrift shop tomorrow, put a full tank of gas in the station wagon and see where the road takes us. I think we should just... be, for a little bit, Nick. Don’t you?” She looks at him from underneath her lashes, the way she does sometimes, and it just about kills him.

Just leaving these here... Little scraps and bits of this and that. Projects that are currently "abandoned" or "on hold". Thought you all might enjoy them!

The Automaton's Apprentice -- Supposed to be sort of a steampunk adventure, about a little girl who is rescued from a fire by a automaton, and grows up to defend him (and their eventual love) from others who would deem it "wrong"... While being a master Automater herself. Feminist and social commentary and blah blah blah. I think big ambitions killed this project before it got off the ground.

The Automaton's ApprenticeCollapse )

**

The Train to Nowhere -- An Elliot and Delilah piece about a train that takes them to a place where there is a lake of fresh water that hasn't dried up, in the middle of the Drought of the Centuries. Elliot, as previously revealed, is a Rainmaker, but can only bring about rain at a terrible (human) price. The beginning of the piece clips along but then sputtered and died out somewhere along the way -- possibly because Story Cannot Survive on Clever Dialogue Alone.

The Train to NowhereCollapse )

**

Slow Bleed-- Sequel to I Ain't Afraid of Emily May. We left our hero, Nate, fatally wounded, as you might recall. He survived, much to his chagrin, but the wound given to him by the ghost blade refuses to heal. This makes him a little crabby. And he wasn't a charmer before. Where did this story go wrong? Hm, unsure. I think perhaps some of the weaknesses of the Emily May verse may need to be worked out before this one "clicks".

Spurned on by the adventures of pinstripers16 as she boldly returns to that which made our adolescence and early-college careers so great, I have decided to reread the entirety of the Harry Potter series over the course of several weeks. I will be blogging about it here.

It begins with a box of books which languished unopened in a dark corner of my closet for a year and a half after I moved home in the summer of 2011.Collapse )

Your main fandom of the year?

Of the year? Probably The Avengers. I wrote a seriously embarrassing lot of Steve/Darcy fic, as well as Tony/Pepper.

Your favorite film you watched this year?

The Avengers. Hands down. I was anticipating liking The Hobbit more than I did.

The rest goes under the cut, if you're truly curious...Collapse )

There you go. I'm sure that surprised no one. Have a Happy New Year, guys!

I haven't posted on LJ since the 9th of November.

Um... oops?

And hello!

Things to know:

I got a different job -- I had been driving 25 minutes to work and back, and when I found it was going to become more expensive to work there (going to $30 polos as a uniform; I would have to buy at LEAST 5 because I don't do laundry on a regular basis and unclean shirts are gross), I put some serious effort into finding a position that would be closer to home and be a little closer to my personal education philosophy. I'm at a school in my hometown now, which reduced my half-hour commute to... a minute and a half. And I got a pay bump.

So, needless to say, I'm a little bit happier in my professional life.

Some writing stuff under hereCollapse )

I could write some more -- I had some thoughts after Newtown. I had some thoughts about Advent I wanted to share but... yeah. I think I'm a bit done. I'll try and write more later!

Title: Nobody Else Gave Me a Thrill (It Had To Be You)
Series: Part One of The Soundtrack to Our Lives is an Old Jazz Record
Pairing: Darcy Lewis/Steve Rogers
Author: ladychi
Rating: Teen
Summary: The one where: Darcy gets a big girl job, goes shopping, charms Steve Rogers and gets to ride THE bike.

“Darcy Lewis’s phone. Darcy Lewis speaking.”

“What’s the hesitation, Lewis?”

Stark?

Sometimes life was one surreal shitstorm after another.

“What’s the hold up? Potts says you needed to think it over. Most people jump at an opportunity like this.”

“Do these people know you?”

“It’ll be fun! You’ll come, hang out with me and Banner in the labs, get us coffee when we need it, run interference for me... and you know, pretty much the rest of the time will be your own.”

“So build a robot. Jesus.”

“I need a person.” Tony’s voice was quiet. “I need someone who’s not afraid of me. I need someone who will draw a hard line. I need someone who has balls of steel. I need someone who has literally tazered a God. That’s in the qualifications section of the job description now.”

“You could have anyone.”

“I could. But I want you. Stop fucking around, Lewis. Take the job.”


Read it at AO3.

Title: These Things That Scare Us (They Will Bring Us Down)
Author: Me, ladychi
Rating: Mature, for violence, sexual scenarios (not in this chapter)
Fandom: Marvel's Avenger Movies
Pairings: Tony/Pepper, Steve Rogers/Darcy Lewis (Thor), Bruce/awesomeness, Natasha Romanov/James "Bucky" Barnes
Summary: The most serious of the "Bump" series thus far. The Avengers, particularly the Stark/Potts family come under fire from an unlikely source, as Pepper becomes the target of The (infamous) Winter Soldier.

The story of how the Avengers really became a family.

Catch up with the rest of the series here.

And no one said anything. That’s the kicker. Everyone knew and no one said anything. We’re talking about Tony Stark, man. I don’t know very much about him, but I know for a fact he’s not the world’s best secret keeper. I mean, he’s definitely got some Sirius-like qualities with the charm and the questionable sexuality... I don’t doubt that he’s straight, I’m just saying he could like it both ways and it wouldn’t surprise me... but if I were James and Lily I still would have gone the Remus direction, know what I mean? There’s a dude who could keep a secret. He walked around as a werewolf for years with only one or two assholes figuring it out.Collapse )

Author's Note: I must give all the thanks and recognition possible to Vylla for talking me through most of the aspects of canon I pulled from the comics I have not yet made it through to craft this story. Like the movie writers, however, I feel like I can nod to the comics but change what I need to in order to make this story cohesive and conceivable.

Therefore, if you see any grievous errors, lay the blame squarely at my door. You have my permission to hate me.

Also, clearly? I need some Avengers icons.
