This is where I keep my plot bunnies. Someday, maybe I'll actually turn these into stories. In the mean time, if you are one of the two people actually reading this and something here inspires your muse, feel free to indulge. If you do write something inspired by one of these bunnies, please include a link in a comment.

2012: Looking Forward

Barcode
A few days ago I posted a summary of what I'd done in 2011. It wasn't that impressive. I don't know if 2012 will be any better, but I figured if I list my plans here at least I'll have definitive proof what what I didn't do come next January.

The Good news:
Just as the year ended, I received an invite to Archive of Our Own (AO3). I've been looking at moving stuff there for several months, they have a few features that I'm really looking forward to (such as the ability to organize fics into collections). With this, I can probably say that my posting fic to FFn is now probably ended. I'm not entirely happy with the way that site works and AO3 better meets my goals. At this point I'm slowly adding my existing fic to AO3, 2 to 3 items per day. I'm telling myself I'm doing it slow so as not to flood the archive, but mostly it's because I don't have that much to post and I want to drag it out as long as possible. In the future, the plan is to post the early drafts of stuff here on Livejournal while I'm working things out and then, when the fics are finalized, they'll show up over at AO3.

The Plans:
So here are my goals for this new year:
1. Immortal Martha: This series needs a name AND I need to finish writing it, and edit the whole thing. I have 2 chapters in the can, a third written but unedited, chapter 4 rough drafted in my head, and the final chapter (& possibly epilog) are still just vague ideas.

2. Those Who Watch: The other big prequel piece for The Xover From Hell(tm) has about 1/2 of a chapter written, and the first 2 chapters plotted out. Later chapters are just vague ideas at this point.

3. The Xover From Hell(tm): Have you ever realized that everything you've written thus far is part of a single big story? Yeah, I had that thought in 2009, and a whole lot of things suddenly fell into place. It's going to be big, it's going to be epic, it's going to be ugly to write. It's scaring the hell out of me just thinking about it. At this point it is a Firefly/BtVS/Doctor Who/Highlander crossover and that's just the planning stages.

4,5,6, etc. I have at least 4 fic that I started in MiniNaNoWriMo back in November. Some are practically ready to post, others are just a few paragraphs. I really should finish some of them and get them posted this year.

So, 2011... Fiction Written in 2011 (I'm listing these in the order I finished them, not necessarily the order they were first publicly posted nor the order they should be read in.
  • February
    • Dance With Me - River and Jayne share a dance and a little bit more (Early Rayne/First Kiss)
      Just a bit of fluffy early-rayne goodness.
    • Mercenary Counseling - Jayne has a problem, Mal helps. (Rayne)
      (Warning: Part of a series, see notes on fic before reading)
    • Public Relations - Jayne's job on Serenity is Public Relations, what does that entail (Jayne centered, Pre-Rayne)
      Has the distinction of containing my favorite scene I've written all year, probably in the last 10 years.
  • April
    • Batteries and TMI - A search begins, comments ensue. (Gen, Rayne overtones)
      Kaylee and batteries... There are so many places this could go, none of them good.
    • A Better Man - Josh breaks it off with Kate, Castle wants to know why (Casket)
      My only Castle fic this year.
  • November
    • Bean Soup and Love - A morality tale about the dangers of Simon's cooking (Fluffy Rayne)
      The result of asking twitter for a prompt, the evil is mine, not theirs.
    • Pitter Patter: Chapter 3 - The morning after the night before. Secrets will be told, truths revealed, and there'll be a bit of gun-play. (Rayne, et al.)
      Well that only took... 13 months to write. I hope it was worth the wait.
    • Doctor/Peri Unnamed comment fic - The Doctor and Peri meet again for the first time.
      My only attempt at a comment fic prompt this year. Probably for the best considering it took me 6 months to write this one comment fic.
    • Pitter Patter: Chapter 4 - Explanations are given, plans are made. And a mother is finally revealed. (Rayne, et al.)
      13 months, then 3 days. I would definitely say that part 3 of this story was the hardest to write.
I would also like to add that in November I participated in my first organized writing challenge, MiniNaNoWriMo. All of the fics listed as written in November were written as part of MiniNaNoWriMo, in addition I made headway on a number of other fics (some of which are just a bit of editing and a beta away from being postable). All told, I wrote about 7500 words that month. Now I know that for most of you 7500 words is called a slow Tuesday, but for me that is hands down the most productive month I've had, ever.

Summary: Mal is just settling down for a last drink of the night when he's interrupted by his gun hand.

Set after Pitter Patter. You need to have read that for this to make sense.

This verse also contains a oneshot prequel Dance With Me but it is not essential for this story.

Another fic written back in February (I'm starting to notice a theme here). In this case, I couldn't post until I finished Pitter Patter. That happened in November and then this just never got posted after that, until now.

Wrote this back in February. Noticed today as I was going through and organizing that I'd never posted it publicly. Hope no one minds. This story was/is a gift for goddessofbirth, who is awesome.

Apparently LiveJournal doesn't want me to see my friends page. If you posted something up recently and are wondering why I didn't reply, it's not you. It's LiveJournal.

DW Rory Quote
Snagged from sarah_jones:

02.
03.
04.
05.
06.
07.

Everyone in fandom seems to be making Josh out to be the bad guy. I don't think so. He's just a guy stuck in the middle.
