Notes: beta’d by the wonderful springwoof.

Happy birthday to springwood. Happy birthday to dear springwoof.


The sea; the depths.
The fear.


The old sailors tell stories. They speak of the depths where the unknown hands lie. Steve has his own stories. The unknown and knowing depths of a shark’s dead eye in dark waters best not spoken of. The shark swims past him, rough skin scraping against Steve’s torso as he hangs in the water waiting for death.

His stories are not as terrifying as the old sailors’: the knocking on the outside of a claustrophobic submarine at two thousand metres, and the voices, always voices, sibilant in the depths.

All the sailors -- the old ones -- have stories. The young sailors are dead.

I snaffled this from [livejournal.com profile] sholio, it looks interesting. Basically, pick a question or two, and leave it in the comments.


1. How did you come up with the title to [insert fic]?
2. Any of your stories inspired by personal experience?
3. What character do you identify with most?
4. Is there a song or a playlist to associate with [insert fic]?
5. If you wrote a sequel to [insert fic], what would it be about?
6. Care to share a favorite hurt/comfort fic?
7. Care to share a favorite crack fic?
8. How would you describe your style?
9. Do you have a guilty pleasure in fic (reading or writing)?
10. Write or describe an alternative ending to [insert fic].
11. What's the angstiest idea you've ever come up with?
12. What's the weirdest AU you've ever come up with?
13. Got any premises on the back burner that you'd care to share?
14. Is there a fic you wish someone else would write (or finish) for you?
15. How do you begin a story--with the plot, or the characters?
16. Are you what George R. R. Martin would call an "architect" or a "gardener"? (How much do you plan in advance, versus letting the story unfold as you go?)
17. Do you have any discarded scenes/storylines/projects?
18. Are there any writers (fanfic or otherwise) you consider an influence?
19. Any fandom tropes you can't resist?
20. Any fandom tropes you can't stand?
21. A pairing you might like to write for, but haven't tried yet.
22. A secondary (or underrated) character you want to see more of in fic?
23. Do you like more general prompts, or more specific ones?
24. A character you enjoy making suffer.
25. A character you want to protect.
26. Major character death--do you ever write/read it? Is there a character whose death you can't tolerate?

there's a comm called Cranky Old Fangirls!


I joined. I'm sure there's some lemon chicken there.

so I have to go to a friend's fancy dress birthday party.

And I thought to wear a sleeved dress with a hood -- this is pretty standard fantasy fare. I've got a lightsabre. You can picture what I am after -- I want swish.

I am *stunned* that I haven't been able to find a pattern.

Albeit Google I've noticed recently is much less helpful with searches.

Anyone got any ideas? Have already bookmarked a helpful site?

The advice reads well, a fic writer can get lovely feedback, which makes their day and inspires them to write.

But the intent and phrasing -- the goal in the title is to manipulate someone into doing something for you.

okay, a mate pointed this out and laughed out loud a lot:

FYI - don't watch at work! NSFW, albeit not massively, but do err on the side of caution.


hilarious.

Beta: Springwoof is the most awesome beta to awesome. Thank you.

We are creatures of habit and it is important to be aware of that fact.

No betating at this time.

This snippet came to me, and I wrote it since that’s what I do. And I wanted to get it down.

Advisory? skip Things left unresolved. Betrayal?

Surprise…? )

so the comment thing on past fic is an interesting affair. I posted the latest ‘Uhane H5O TS fusion, and I got a few comments on it (which is awesome), and a bunch of new and/or repeat readers (based on numbers and increase in the number of kudos) on all the other stories in the series, and all my other stories including the out-there stuff. But only one person has commented on the old stories.

Why not comment on an "old" fic?
