I have another post to come about hockey-related things, but I wanted to post a link to my Remix Redux fic since reveals were today. I wrote just my original assignment:

How To Lose Friends and Alienate People (The Enemy of My Enemy Remix) (1326 words) by theladyscribe
Rating: Not Rated
Relationships: Maria Hill & Pepper Potts, Maria Hill & Tony Stark
Characters: Maria Hill, Pepper Potts
Summary: If this were a normal job search, Maria would start by creating a spreadsheet of all the security and technology firms in the world, categorizing them by corporation or government-operated, making a list of known associates in her network, and listing the pros and cons of each firm. Since this is not a normal job search, she pulls up the Stark Industries website and clicks on "Careers."
A remix of [personal profile] igrockspock's How To Make Friends and Influence People.

My original plan was to write a story about Maria helping Steve and Sam track down Bucky, but then it became about Maria making herself an asset to Stark Industries and the way her goals intertwine with those of Pepper and Tony. Once I figured that out, the story really just wrote itself.

"There’s a friend for Howard (aw!) named Tara, a local tattoo artist who's a bit of a thrill-seeker because it wouldn't be a true relaunch without giving people the ability to call me a hipster." -- Chip Zdarsky

It's been far too many months since I posted an "FK Recently" bulletin. Sorry! Better late than never? For the months of March to July, in my corners of social journaling, here are the Forever Knight items that I spotted:

Ficathons, fests and communities



Discussion, essays, etc.

"I had no plans to [return to the character], having said all I had to with the character — or so I thought. But isolating the character from his World War I setting, considering him out of context, I realized I quite liked the idea of writing him for his own sake." - Garth Ennis

not fallen in a glacial crevasse, not flambéed in a volcanic eruption, not pecked to death by puffins. Blogging (and the mental concentration it needs) has been derailed by RL shenanigans. But today we hiked roughly twelve km/seven and a half miles, getting astounding views of a glacier and associated lake of glacial meltwater studded with with icebergs and also getting to walk up to within about twenty feet of the glacial mass itself (sadly, the meltwater cut us off from being able to actually touch the ice face, but if we'd had waders we could totally have done it). We also had stunning vistas out over the glacial floodplain to the sea; when one of the many volcanoes under the ice erupts, of course it flash-melts tons of ice, producing immensely destructive flash floods across the countryside. Honestly, it's amazing settlers stuck it out in this country! I got just about blown off my feet at the top of the mountain. We goggled at columnar bssalt; when basaltic lava cools the right way, it forms long hexagonal columns, and Svartifoss waterfall tumbles down through a seventy- or eighty-foot-high grotto of them that looks like god's own organ. (The musical instrument, you perverts.) And tonight we had shots of Brennevin, Icelandic aquavit flavored with anise, and Vatnajökull beer, brewed from local glacial melt and flavored with local wild thyme, and also I had salmon on my pizza.

Tomorrow is a long travel day back to Reykjavik, with a stop along the way to visit a geothermal power station, which I'm looking forward to. Then we have Tuesday morning free, and leave for the airport at 2:00. It's been lovely, but I'm ready to go home.

On my return I made a loaf of the 3 Malts and Sunflower Seed flour, v. nice.

Friday supper: Gujerati khicchari.

Saturday breakfast rolls: Tassajarra cinnamon raisin.

Neither of us felt much like going out on Saturday evening, so I cooked us a meal in: a whole John Dory simmered in soy sauce and ginger (a recipe from Colin Spencer's Fish Cookbook, which was a bit unhelpful about the timing for a whole fish rather than fillets, but turned out nicely in the end), served with couscous, asparagus healthy-grilled in pumpkin seed oil and drizzled with balsamic vinegar, and padron peppers.

Today's lunch: pheasant potroasted with bacon in brandy and madeira, served with Greek spinach rice, chicory halved, healthy-grilled in pumpkin seed oil and splashed with wild pomegranate vinegar, and broccoli steamed with garlic and red chilli (the chopped garlic and chilli sauted in oil then the broccoli florets added and tossed in the oil, and then a little water added).

(I might do a proper catch-up post later, but real life has again been... interesting, to say the least, hence my absence from online)

I just realised that there are exactly two fics in the Haleh Adams tag on AO3, and they are both written for me. This makes me kinda sad.

Also, I'm apparently the only person commenting on The Mentalist fics on AO3. This makes me even more sad. Please, friends of mine who like The Mentalist, go over there and read some fic and leave feedback and make me look less like a sad weirdo.

Ouroboros by bedlamsbard, is set before the end of the prequel films, around the time of the Clone Wars - but don't worry if you don't know all the wider universe of Star Wars - I came in as a casual fan, who's seen all the films but not much more, and didn't have any trouble following the storyline.

A Sith artefact drags our heroes (Obi-Wan, Padme and Anakin) into other timelines/parallel universes, and they get to see how a small change can alter the world they knew. This is a trope that always appeals to me, and in this case it combines with great world-building, characters I can like and some fantastic action, from light-sabre duels to space battles.

On the downside, these are the first two parts of a trilogy, and the author is fond of her cliff-hangers, but as someone who really doesn't like unfinished stories, I still found these satisfying in their own right. I should probably also point out that it may not work for you if you don't like reading about poly relationships at all, but this isn't a romance, it's one plot thread among many.

I used to read the Star Wars Extended Universe tie-in books back in the day, and I'd say this compares very favourably with most of them.

I seem to be having some sort of anxiety issue today that I will put down to hormones, having done little this morning but write a post that I subsequently deleted and fret about the vid and the last audiofic and the current fic, and then spend the afternoon not-writing and being fed up (though I did some typing and editing).

The current fic (the WIPbigbang fic, House Divided/Eurydice II) is approximately 53,000 words and not yet finished. It's supposed to get posted by the 29th and it's fucking stalled. I've also a Troubled Tales fic to finish in that time, which will be prioritised if it comes down to it, because it's me running that exchange.

I need to stop writing novels. I have an idea for another sequel for this thing, now, as well, which would provide a final answer for the Mara-Audrey-William-Nathan conundrum. Argh. I'm thinking it'd better not be this bloody long, though.

"I mean, the broader point of 'Planetary' was very much asking people to look at the roots the genre sprang from and understanding the primal quality of the 20th Century myths we wrote. So when this [story] hit me – and I'm pretty sure I was standing in my garden at three in the morning with a glass of whisky, smoking furiously and swearing at the sky, reduced to waiting for the thunderbolt to hit – it spoke to me not only of the reasons why someone might put on a helmet and find justice their own way, but also why we read these myths of social justice ourselves. Where would you draw the line?" - Warren Ellis
