Story Title: The Longest Night (I promise ~ I can't promise)
Fandom: Akatsuki no Yona | Yona of the Dawn
Link(s): at Ao3 (recommended); at FF.net
Summary: When Yona and her friends need shelter for the winter, Kija insists on bringing them to White Dragon Village for a traditional solstice festival honoring his ancestors. The ritual brings messages from the world of the dead, including a visit from the most honored white dragon ancestor of all — but what begins as a joyous meeting threatens to become a tragedy.
Warnings: Heavy Angst, Possible Character Death, Canonical Character Death, brief but intense violence
Characters: Kija, Ensemble, special appearance by Guen
When I Started: Not so long ago, only the beginning of this year. This grew out from my 2016 Yuletide story.
How I Lost My Shit: I don't remember if I did before signing up for the bang, although I did write a few other stories so it must have been back-burnered. Mostly, though, there were things I found challenging about this story so that I just knew I'd have trouble finishing it without some formal commitment. Embarassingly, I actually did lose my shit after posting had started; I went out of town for a weeklong family visit and really slacked off after I got back.
How I Finished My Shit: Sheer determination, but tempered with nonperfectionism. My completely-truthful mantra for this story was "I want to do this one no matter how messy it turns out. Also setting a bunch of personal deadlines way in advance of the actual deadline was helpful --- of course I ended up blowing through all of those, but each one pushed me to get a bit more done. ^_^;

And now it's finished! My beautiful rambly angsty hurty baby! I'm so proud!

Many thanks to my artist, too!

Story Title: In the Cold Dark Night
Fandom: MCU
Link: on AO3 (and check out the art by [livejournal.com profile] sandy79)
Summary: Phil's whole life changed the night he was attacked by a vampire and became a creature of the night. It's about to change again.
Warnings: Mild violence
Characters: Phil Coulson, Clint Barton, with appearances by Nick Fury, Melinda May, John Garrett, Natasha Romanov, Antoine Triplett, Steve Rogers, Sam Wilson, Bucky Barnes
Pairings: Clint Barton/Phil Coulson (pre-slash)
When I Started**: I wrote the first chapter for the Clint/Coulson 2015 Holiday Exchange.
How I Lost My Shit**: I always intended to continue the story, but other projects were higher on my list. No deadline equals no writing being done by me.
How I Finished My Shit**: I almost didn't. Severe self-doubt and another fandom love really hampered my writing. Having a deadline and just finally powering through helped me to finish. At least I didn’t have technological troubles like I did the last two years.

Ejaculations of Wonder
Fandom: Sherlock + Oglaf fusion.
WIP. Currently up to Chapter 13
Word count: 3511
Rating: NC-17/E
Pairings: Sherlock/His Hand, Sherlock/Everybody
Warnings: Creator Chose Not to Use Archive Warnings. Fantasy world dub-con.
AO3 tags:
Fusion, Cumsprites, Comeplay, Magical Surveillance, Sherlock Just Can't Help Himself, mistress irene, The Criminal Ambassador, Sherlock Before John, Sherlock Meets John, Sherlock has a Secret and it is Kind of Gross, Facials, Bukkake of a Sort
Summary: Sherlock Holmes, a young Consulting Apprentice Detective, has a weird libido, a busy hand, and a terrible problem. He has attracted the attention of Mistress Irene and the Criminal Ambassador - and Mistress Irene has ways of keeping tabs on her favorites.

Like many Oglaf fans, I don't understand why Cumsprite AUs aren't almost as ubiquitous as Daemon AUs. If you're not a fan of the very brilliant, very funny, and very filthy Oglaf webcomic, go click on that and come back here once you are.

Related Works: the magnificent [personal profile] okapi is remixing this story chapter-by-chapter as DIRTY LIMERICKS (surely the highest form of literature). I am honored beyond all reason. Tiny Spritely Spurts of Verse.

Signed up to be an August fic reccer at [community profile] 221b_recs. That should keep bringing me back here. So far so good. Got a good healthy list of stories I want to plug.

Here's my first one (The Reality of Waking by Chancy_Lurking): http://221b-recs.dreamwidth.org/510012.html

Infinity Gauntlet Vol. 1 #1

I think the person (or persons?) breaking up the Infinity Gauntlet #1 beginning credits page for Guided View messed up. Because the Guided View only shows parts of the giant-ass stone structure making up the issue title instead of Thanos and Mephisto’s dialogue. I did a double take, and it broke my concentration.

Also, I don’t know why, but it went from Thanos and Mephisto talking on a planet or moon to Doctor Strange chilling in his Sanctum Sanctorum without any transitions. It also broke my concentration. I mean, the least the writer or editor could do was add something like, ‘Meanwhile, in Greenwich Village,’ or something. Weird.

I’ve barely begun this comic, FFS.

I even posted about the Guided View thing on Snapchat. I mean, the reason I like reading digital comic books is the Guided View. It’s bloody frustrating when it’s messed up.

Also, I didn’t know that Wong was engaged! I had to look up Imei––Wong’s fiancé––and Rintrah on the Marvel Comics Wiki, since Wong mentioned them.

Story Title: Our Souls Still in Fetters
Fandom: Les Miserables
Link(s): AO3
Summary: After Javert is assigned to discover a blackmailer within a public-house that caters to men who prefer other men, Valjean is unexpectedly drawn into the case. Together they must stop the blackmailer before any lives can be ruined...including their own.
Warnings None
Characters: Javert, Valjean, Cosette
Pairings: Javert/Valjean
When I Started: Uh, sometime in 2013-2014ish?
How I Lost My Shit: Les Mis fandom turned toxic for a while there and I wandered off to other fandoms. Also I moved to a new city and a new career, which was (and still is) pretty time-consuming!
How I Finished My Shit I finally just sat down and made myself get off Tumblr and write. Approximately 23,000 words later, I finally finished the fic!

Summary: Zhenya signs the papers for his minor league contract three weeks before his seventeenth birthday and waits for his visa to arrive.

And waits.

And waits.

And waits, until finally, it arrives, just in time for the 2003 baseball season to end.

*

A baseball AU.

Warnings:None
Characters: Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby,
Original Characters
Pairings: Sidney Crosby/Evgeni Malkin
When I Started: January 2015
How I Lost My Shit: I just. I love baseball a lot and I love this pairing and I wanted it to be perfect. It started out very differently, but I knew how it ended.
How I Finished My Shit: Through a lot of toil and tears. I literally have five different versions of the story in my drafts folder, because I'd get stuck or change something and have to do major rewrites and starting over was easier than editing my current draft. I probably cut almost 10k from the original plot,
and I was editing right up until posting. But it's done now! And I'm pretty happy with it.
