Title: Wicked Games
Fandom: Thor/Avengers
Rating: PG
Characters/Pairings: Sif, Loki/Sif implied
Warnings: Major Character Death
Notes: I asked for a prompt and was given: Sif finding out Loki was dead. Using the movie as your emotion pool. I don’t know how well I stuck with using the movie as my emotional pool, but this is what I came up with. (Also, second time I am writing Sif POV, let me know how it works? I’m still finding my way with her voice).
Summary: She hadn’t believed Thor’s news when the messenger arrived.

Title: A Fragile Heart
Fandom: Avengers/Thor
Characters/Pairings: Loki/Sif
Rating: R
Warning: Character Death, Blood, Gore, Child Death/Still Birth, Consensual Torture.
Notes: I got inspired by a bunch of angsty and sad stories floating around on Loki/Sif tags a few days ago. This was what came of it. And I hope you read it despite the warnings.

Summary: This was his heart -- dead and broken -- only his body had yet to realize.

Title: haven't forgotten my way home
Fandom: Thor/Avengers
Rating: R
Characters/Pairings: Loki/Sif
Notes: This was written for Mischief and Mistletoe: Loki/Sif Exchange hosted on AO3. Beta read by Artyartie and bluejbird

Summary: In the very first stories Yggdrasil was also called heart-tree, growing from a heart-seed planted before living memory. It is a poetic name that has stuck with Loki through his life, reflected in the gifts he gives to Sif -- each decorated with an engraving of the sacred ash tree. It is only at the beginning that he will remember that Yggdrasil grew from his still beating heart.

Can also be read @ AO3 & @ DW

Dear Readers I am looking for a beta-reader for my Thor/Avengers story I am currently writing for the Mischief and Mistletoe (Loki/Sif) exchange being hosted on AO3. I know I haven't been that active with my journal in a while now, but I'm hoping that one of you wonderful people will be interested in helping me out. I'm still writing the story (final due date of December 22, but I want to have it done and submitted by the 20th), but it is coming along very nicely.

So, are there any takers?

Title: (my weakness i feel)
Fandom: Thor / Avengers
Rating: PG13 for non-descriptive nudity?
Characters/Pairings: Loki/Sif
Notes: I wrote this as a response to a prompt left at norsekink. The prompt was for a fic in which Loki and Sif bath together. You can find the original prompt HERE as well as my original fill HERE.

Summary: There was a shift in the steam filled currents of air that alerted Loki that he was no longer alone. There were only a handful of people who would dare breach the sanctity of his private chambers. And of that handful only three could do it with so few signs to betray their presences. Of those three, only one would enter his bathing chamber unannounced.

The world must be ending because I'm watching the Twilight movies. A series of books I couldn't stand reading in the first place. Worse I'm doing this of my own free will. I can't even begin to explain why I went and got the movies to watch in the first place. Morbid curiosity, maybe?

I can say with certainty that I am still a Jacob girl all the way.

God, I hated these books.

So I went to see The Amazing Spider-man tonight with my best friend. I have to say, that I actually enjoyed this version much, much more than I did the Tobey Maguire versions. There was humour and build up, and that level of awkwardness everyone remembers from high school and first year university/college. I laughed so hard I cried during parts of this movie. And I would most definitely go to see a second rebooted version with this cast and director/writer team. And when it's released on DVD I will most likely be picking it up on release day.

Still haven't gone to see The Dark Knight Rises, yet. But that has more to do with the fact that my local theater (a 12 minute walk away) has 4 screens showing this movie, and if I want to get in to see the movie I need to buy my tickets the day before (or show up at opening to buy tickets for an afternoon/evening showing of the movie). I don't particularly want to sit in a full theater to see this movie when I am constantly plagued with movie talkers, boys who try to get lucky in a full theater (in the row ahead of me), and cursed seat kickers. So, I'll have to wait a little longer before I go watch it.

I also went to see Magic Mike a few weeks ago. It was an interesting movie and focused a lot on characters to push forward the plot. I really kind of liked it, even when some of the dialog was a little awkward in places. But that just made it seem more real. I mean, no one actually talks the way writers write dialog for books and stories. People rarely speak in complete or grammatically correct sentences. And that was the dialog - real, honest, speech.

And I have nothing else to add, except that I am once more back on the stop-smoking patch. Two days now, and I think I'm going to bite my tongue off... or maybe chew through my lips. Gum ain't cutting it, the patch is helping but not enough. But I'm fighting to make it five days. If I can make it five days my pharmacist, doctor, and the stop-smoking guides all tell me that the worst will be behind me. I don't know how much I believe that, but fuck, I want to see if it's true.

I have just finished re-reading all 21 books of the Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series by Laurell K. Hamilton. The newest book (Kiss the Dead) lacked a certain punch for me and I don't really know how to describe what was missing.

It had crime fighting (working with RPIT and Zebroski and rational!Dolph). It had vampire politics (with Asher's behaviour finally being addressed, and the mysterious Benjamin and his human servant who's name I cannot recall at the moment). It had pointless sex (which physically healed Anita, kills Nicky, and emotionally sooths Devil from the break up with Asher, and does nothing for the plot).

What it didn't have was zombie raising, multiple plot lines (like every book before NIC), or Edward. It didn't even have much of Jean-Claude in the book either (for what few scenes he is apart of he'd kind of a prop and sock puppet for Anita's thoughts).

I will probably add more thoughts on the book (and the series in general) later, when I'm not thumb-typing my post onto my cell phone.

Anyone else have an opinion they want to share/debate with me about these books?

On TV Shows:

So, today I watched Saving Hope. I have to say that I really enjoyed the pilot! I'm not really one for medical shows or even criminal series (with the exception of SVU and Criminal Minds), but this one... I don't know, I think it had more to do with how the show doesn't seem to be just about the medical side. But about the lives and struggles of the people who picked medicine as a profession.

Also, how could I resist Michael Shanks?


I am also really getting into Continuum like seriously bad, lol. The idea of a world governed by corporations instead of governments is pretty interesting (specially when you look out to the world and see governments bending over backwards for companies and corporations). I like Kiera and find her to be a very sympathetic character (a woman completely displaced and torn from her family, from her son). But at the same time I'm more than a little interested in Liber8 as well - because for a militant group bent of preventing a corporate take over of the world... that's kind of awesome, too.


On Writing and Fic:

I have a few things on my plate for this right now. Most of which will likely never get done, but still something I want to try to finish, you know?

First and for most, is writing and finishing the damn second part to Servatis a Periculum for Supernatural. It was an idea that bit me in the ass and never really let go. However, now that I am writing the second part (and I am writing it), I'm finding myself bogged down with the little details of the world I have created for Dean and Sam. The political ramifications of revealing Dean as Dean Winchester to the wider world, of drawing a line in the sand against the Order. The possibly world ending implications of Cain. You name it. Also, it's really fucking hard to write details about a world when the narrative of the story isn't meant to go into those details because Dean doesn't care about them - or the world for that matter.

Secondly, I'm starting to get back into writing for SGA. And now that I am falling in love with the characters again, I'm trying to finish/add more to the Finding Emily Series. A series that I have, every once in a while, gone in and added a hundred or so words here, a scene and half there. I know how the story ends. I know exactly how that last segment of the entire series is going to read and I have the damn thing written out (long hand)! But it's all the details in between that cause an issue with just slapping out that last instalment and then filling in the gaps. It would make absolutely no sense to any reader except for myself because I know how they go to that point.

Thirdly, I'm still itching to write a Spock/Uhura story, and most likely a Tarrant Hightopp/Alice Kingsley (AiW) story too. But every where I look you see the origin stories and the return to Underland stories. Its kind of hard to escape when the story you want to tell doesn't do anything to stand out from the rest of the pack. Not that standing out from the pack in necessary, I just don't really like falling into a vein that I may never get out of.

Forthly, I still have the Leverage Bingo to complete. Stories which I am writing (mostly on my lunch breaks at work - because who the hell is going to bug me at 3am when I'm sitting outsite with a notebook and a pack of smokes and a death glare for anyone approaching the picnic bench?).

Lastly, I also signed up for [community profile] caffeinatedmagic a crossover community. I will be writing a crossover of SGA & Leverage to one of the following prompts: defiant, As I Lay Dying, The Dog Bites Back. Which should be pretty interesting to me. At least I'm looking forward to writing this kind of story. I think. Maybe. It depends on how much sleep I get in the next few days.

And PS to the writing bit:

I think I want to write a Sheppard/Teyla story using a poem by Rudyard Kipling - The Female of the Species - as a kick off. Only I'm kind of going in a very different direction mentally, because as much as the poem acted as the catalyst, I'm actually writing a Sheppard/Teyla story that deals with Todd and the Wraith and what a Queen means to male Wraith and what it means for the Teyla to be a female with Wraith DNA... and yeah...



Now, I should be sleeping, or at least laying in bed instead of writing this all out. I do need to work tonight and I want to go in to work not looking like the walking dead. There has already been too much talk of zombies and zombie apocalypses between the boys (which is really something that should be expected considering I am the only female who works overnights at a drug store that is regularly robbed from and staffed by a bunch of misfits).
