I'm reading published erotica. I figure my flist is more likely to rec me readable things than I'd get going in blind, or god forbid, depending on the rating of mere amazon peasants. so...

know anything worth the time?

so, I think it's entirely possible that Owned may end up being *longer* than Needs Must was. it's nowhere close right now - I'm at ~35k, and needs must ended up at ~99k, but when I look at the sheer quantity of chapter-length events that I *really want* to include, it's a little absurd. that 35k has only breached the very first phase of their relationship.

blah blah blah, me talking about my writing process and some of the variables I'm struggling with right now )

it's really a strange thing being a fangirl. because normal people really don't stay up at night thinking about Harvey Specter and having a genuine, holy-shit eureka moment of OH MY GOD, HARVEY MUST KNOW HOW TO PLAY A MUSICAL INSTRUMENT AND IT'S PROBABLY THE TRUMPET, IT HAS TO BE THE TRUMPET AND ALSO THE PIANO AND I'M CERTAIN OF THIS, GOD HANDED IT TO ME ON A STONE TABLET AND EVERYTHING, to the point where you feel the need to spread the word.

I mean, really. that's a weird fucking hobby. objectively speaking.

dear god, can someone please tell me where to get the extended pilot of Suits, that aired elsewhere? I've finally managed to get my hands on s1 commentary but there are sekrit scenes that are hiding from me that I've only seen gifs and screenshots and recountings of and it's MAKING ME CRAZY, OKAY, I NEED IT FOR REASONS.

ETA: ....okay, I literally just put "suits extended pilot" into Pirate Bay and it was just that easy, wtf has been wrong with me all these months? crisis averted. but I'm going leave this here as public acknowledgment that this show is making me kookoo. I need an intervention.

tumblr is seriously some perfect composite of heaven and hell where my need to compulsively hit the MOAR button is continuously rewarded by pleasurable new stimuli, until I, like the lab rat, starve to death and forego sleep for no substantial gain.

srsly. work of the devil, or in the very least, a sadistic social scientist.
thatotherperv: (harvey good boy)
you may have noticed that I'm prone to ridiculously long author's notes, haha. filthy habit, can't help myself. I wrote one for the chapter I'm about to post at AO3 and since it's really not at all necessary outside my neurosis for shared meaning, I decided that I'd go ahead and post it here instead of on the chapter itself.

once upon a time, I fell down a research hole called '24/7 vs TPE' )

I will *never* get tired of writing Unreliable Narrator.
thatotherperv: (jeff)
you may have already noticed, but I have been (and will be for a while) migrating more of my fic over to AO3. probably any fic you see pop up if you have my name tracked will be ancient history - so far I've only migrated my Buffy drabbles over there, and I'm going to slowly move my longer Buffy fic now as well.

so, you know, don't get too excited if you get an email, haha - and you may want to disable your tracking if you don't want an avalanche. the only new content I'll be posting in the foreseeable future is to Owned and The Girl Next Door.

it's funny, I haven't read any of my buffy fic in years, and it's highly amusing to me - because some of it, I can't even get through the first few paragraphs before hitting the back button (harder than I will ever back button another author in my life, because ZOMG NO ONE TO BLAME BUT MYSELF), and then some of it I'm pleasantly surprised by - in that, "I wrote this?" kind of way. but Jesus, I was prolific. I was a little fic-vomiting machine for the first few years.

ps, I really appreciate all the support on my last post. thank you for being in my corner

that my sister literally just gave me credit for being upright, this morning. my sister who is also sort of currently my boss, temporarily, because I'm currently incapable of handling my job without freezing up completely and doing nothing.

living with depression sucks so fucking hard. I was doing so well, I was doing everything RIGHT, and then apparently I started experiencing "breakthrough" with the antidepressants I've been on for 5 years, and now I'm white-knuckling my entire fucking life and hoping a local psychiatrist will just CALL ME THE FUCK BACK ALREADY so that we can go about getting me on something that works.

I am, otoh, completely grateful that I work with family and friends who are willing to give me the crutches I need right now. the last time, my work situation was, you know, normal and I ended up quitting (because I could no longer get up in the morning) and being unemployed on the couch for forever, since it was 2007 and the economy was in free-fall. I feel more pressure to perform in this job, since it's a small company and my boss has 5 kids and you know, needs to feed them and needs me to do my job in order for that to happen, but you know. grateful.

Ok, so. I'm about to start posting the new D/s fic I'm writing (ETA: now posted here). I have 7 chapters (~23k) of written, but it’s nowhere near done – nowhere near as done as Needs Must was when I started posting it. In fact, at this point, I haven’t even concluded their first week together. Heh. I’ve been kinda down about life lately, so Kate (who is so amazing, omg, even when I’m annoying and neurotic) suggested that I post the first chapter.

I do know where this is going, but I’m still not sure how long it’s going to take me to get there. Between my depression and the fact that writing dom pov is slower going for me, I can’t in good conscience promise any kind of regular posting schedule for this one, so – consider yourself cautioned.

As with Needs Must, the tags list will grow as chapters are posted, in order to avoid spoiling my own fic, but I’m going to post the broad strokes of the kink under the cut, for those of you that want to know in advance. PLEASE don’t read if these themes will upset you. I’ll have no pity. Seriously.

every time I see "Marvey," I feel like I'm being karmically bitch-slapped for every time I said "Spangel," "Spuffy," or "Spander."

the sins of my fandom!youth. it hurts my soul.

if you've ever photoshopped the moles off Gabriel Macht's face, I've fantasized about hunting you down and hurting you in slow and creative ways.

whyyyy are there not a thousand epic Holmes/Watson/Mary fics in the RJD Sherlock fandom like this one?

I need more. I might DIE if there are never any more. rewatching the films now, and just. ot3. *sobs*
thatotherperv: (gabriel lil bit)
I think I actually might be in love with Paul Cutler (Gabriel's role in SWAT) as madly as I'm in love with Harvey. it's actually sad, how many times I've watched this movie. I love that he has Harvey's attitude, with none of his dickwaving. I love that he's a badass, and clearly in control, but when someone tries to engage him in a power struggle, his tactic is to give in easy but in a way that still makes it obvious he's still in charge. I love how bashful he is about asking the shrink out, and his total broship with the chick from the army.

it's so easy for me to see him as Harvey's little brother, who had the way paved for him a little bit and can afford to be more mellow, more affable. where he has game, but he grew up in the shadow of his super-smooth brother who shielded him from their mother's infidelity - so he's a little more romantic, a little more awkward.

the more I think about it, the more in love I am with that particular crossover concept.
thatotherperv: (ticket to special hell)
I really didn't mean to do this, guys. I just had this dirtywrong idea that I couldn't stop picking at. there may be more coming. but I am, in no way, switching fandoms.

so...go here if you want >5k words of filthy het porn with no title, because apparently I've given up on naming things
thatotherperv: (jeff)
you know, it's the weirdest damn thing - I've always been a fan of human/normal AUs for supernaturally-themed shows. give me a well-done AU of any kind, really, and I'll lick that shit up.

but no matter how well-written, any time I read a no-werewolf Teen Wolf AU, I can't stop know what would make this fic 10x better? if Derek were sekritly a werewolf. that would be *awesome*.

apparently, Derek isn't as interesting to me when his man-pain doesn't involve, you know. extra-large canines and disappearing eyebrows.

sorry guys, I just can't take the spam anymore :/ I don't think too many people use anon on my journal anyway.

Once upon a time, I really enjoyed tracking my plot bunnies / fic progress on lj. Partly because the creative process is an ephemeral thing, and looking back on my own ideas or processes a few years in the future can be like looking in on someone else's (seriously, the number of times I've gone...wait...I wrote that?), and partly because (see icon), I like getting other people's responses. And these days I try not to post wips until I'm relatively certain they're close to completion.

So I'm going to give that habit a bit of a resurrection. Blanket warning that I can't finish all the fics I start because I have so many ideas and I'm a relatively slow writer these you know, if it's gonna kill you read about a bunny and have it not come to fruition, you probably don't want to click the link. Also, for things that do get posted, you'd probably be a little spoiled on details from my blather.

(after writing out all my current projects, should also warn you that apparently all of them involve explicit sex with other people in a non-villainous manner. OTP is *the* OTP, but I also love poly and dislike jealousy, and basically, see icon. It has more than one application.)

Suits )
thatotherperv: (suits slash not alone)
I get confused every time someone says they're glad Mike and Harvey are BACK on good terms. I don't think they were ever *not* on good terms.

spoilers up through current airing, but really, cutting because it got longer than intended )
