dear femslashex author

First of all, thank you so much for writing for me! I can't wait to see what you come up with! I am very easy to please, especially when it comes to these wonderful, often-underrepresented ships! I hope that this letter will help answer any questions you may have, but rest assured that I will be excited and delighted by whatever you have to offer.

Damages, SJA, The Closer, and ASOIAF )

General preferences: I love new takes on characters I love, whether it's through putting them in new situations or simply through character studies. I love AUs, although generally I prefer "what if?" scenarios to completely different universes (i.e. "What if Ellen hadn't walked away at the end?" rather than "Ellen and Patty in the wild west!" - modern AUs being the exception). I'm a big fan of melancholy/bittersweet stories, which would definitely suit some of these ships very well, but I can also get on board with super angsty or fun and silly. I'm fine with anything from G to NC-17. Mostly, I hope you have fun writing this story, and I can't wait to read it!

rarewomen letter

Hello, kind [livejournal.com profile] rarewomen author!

I've never participated in this particular exchange before, but I'm very excited to see what you come up for for me. I'll be thrilled just to see any of the ladies I selected featured in any fic, so there's very little pressure. I'm pretty easy to please! I hope that this letter will help answer any questions you may have, but rest assured that I will be excited and delighted by whatever you have to offer.

Damages )

The Sarah Jane Adventures )

Star Trek: The Next Generation )

General preferences: I'm a big fan of team/family and mentor/protege dynamics. I love new takes on characters I love, whether it's through putting them in new situations or simply through character studies. I like seeing characters out of their element and rising to various challenges, awkward or angsty relationships moving forward in one way or another, hurt/comfort, snarky characters, intelligent kids, and unlikely friendships. I love AUs, although generally I prefer "what if?" scenarios to completely different universes (i.e. "What if Ellen hadn't walked away at the end?" rather than "Ellen and Patty in the wild west!"). I'm a big fan of melancholy/bittersweet stories. I'm fine with anything from G through NC-17 (though for SJA I'd prefer it stay below R) and while smut is fine, I'd prefer it not be simply PWP. No non/dub-con, incest, bestiality, watersports, etc.

Again, thank you for writing for me! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

fic (sja): what mates do

Title: What Mates Do
Author: [livejournal.com profile] averita
Summary: Before Clyde met Luke, he really didn't pay attention to how many celestial bodies came plummeting towards Earth on a regular basis. (Post-The Lost Boy.)
Rating: PG
Word Count: ~2140
A/N: My first Yuletide fic! Written for [livejournal.com profile] philote_auctor, who requested Luke/Clyde friendship. It was a great exercise because I don't think I've ever written a fic in which a female character is not at least one of the major players. I hope I managed it! (Also here on AO3.)

It's only been a few days, and already people at school have moved on from the 'Moon Nearly Crashes Into Earth' incident in favor of 'Kelsey's Parents Are Out of Town This Weekend, BYOB.' )

go on, then.

It's the time of the year for year-end memes! But that's not what I'm posting today.

While visiting last weekend, [livejournal.com profile] own_the_sky, [livejournal.com profile] 37_soul_sister, [livejournal.com profile] samcasey, and I were lamenting the loss of LJ in our daily lives. Twitter is great, Tumblr is fun, even Facebook has its moments, but none of these sites allow for the same level of interaction and personal connection that LJ does. This is the site that I came to for intelligent discussion about television as well as incoherent flailing about my favorite ships; more than that, it used to be the best way of keeping up with my friends and the happenings of their lives.

Those days are gone, or at the very least, dying rapidly; I don't post nearly as much as I used to, and when I do, it's more for my own sake than because I expect people to be reading it. I'd love for them to come back, because I do miss the closeness and community that sites like Tumblr - for all their merits - can't hope to replicate. That said, that's not why I'm posting either.

A lot of people have simply gotten out of the habit of updating, and after a month, or two, or six, or even a year has gone by, it might feel weird to suddenly reappear. That's what I'm asking you to do: reappear. If this gives you an excuse to do it, so be it! One entry by the end of the year. Talk about whatever you want - what have you been up to? What are you watching these days? If this is your last post ever, how can we keep in touch? Post the end of the year memes if you'd like. I just think it would be really excellent to see my flist full of posts I actually care about rather than just random communities.

(PS: Please link/otherwise nudge me if you decide to participate! And feel free to share this link if you want to get your friends involved.)

dear yuletide author

Hello! This is my first time participating in Yuletide, so I'm very excited to dive in, and especially to see what you come up with for me! I'm generally pretty easy to please; I hope that this letter will help answer any questions you may have, but rest assured that I will be excited and delighted by whatever you have to offer!

Covert Affairs )

The Closer )

The Sarah Jane Adventures )

General preferences: I prefer gen fic (canon pairings okay) or femslash, and am a big fan of team/family dynamics. I love new takes on characters I love, whether it's through putting them in new situations or simply through character studies. The three fandoms I've chosen are pretty different, but interesting female relationships are at the heart of them all. I like seeing characters out of their element and rising to various challenges, awkward or angsty relationships moving forward in one way or another, hurt/comfort, snarky characters, intelligent kids, and unlikely friendships. I'm a big fan of melancholy/bittersweet stories, though - at least for SJA - a more or less happy/resolved ending would be appreciated. I'm fine with anything from G through NC-17 (though for SJA I'd prefer it stay below R) and while smut is fine, I'd prefer it not be simply PWP. No non/dub-con, incest, bestiality, watersports, etc. 

I hope that's helpful! I know I'll love whatever you come up with. Thanks so much for writing for me!

Rating: PG
Word Count: ~1260
Characters/Pairing: Ellie Faber (aka Lila Lincoln), Clyde Langer, Sarah Jane Smith. Can be read as Clyde/Ellie, but not explicit.

She's one of my favorite characters so this was a fun opportunity. The first drabble is from a collection I wrote three years ago featuring various characters Mary has played. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] meryl_edan for the beta!

A/N: I don't actually watch Criminal Minds except for the episodes Erin Strauss (Jayne Atkinson) is in, but I'm intrigued by this little twist to her character and this is what happened. Still not sure how I feel about this particular plot point, but if it gives Jayne a decent storyline, I'm all for it! Spoilers for 7x09.

wish list

1. Post your Holiday wishlist to your LJ. Items can be fannish or not, small or extravagant. Have fun!
2. Look around your flist and grant any wishes you can to OTHERS. This includes sending actual gifts if you want!
3. Re-post your wishlist two weeks before the holiday as a reminder.


This has been going around my flist, and the latest [livejournal.com profile] bsg_epics post finally convinced me to make one myself!

Rating: G
Word Count: ~1470
A/N: Yeah, you all knew it was coming. The potential for Laura Roslin and Sarah Jane Smith interaction is so fantastic, I couldn't resist. This one got away from me a bit; I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it, but the idea was too good to pass up! Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] marzipanilla and [livejournal.com profile] shyboots for their help!

A/N: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] sarahjane_fic End of SJA Ficathon. Prompt was: Sarah Jane struggling with being a mum in the early days of Luke's arrival. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] wild_force71 for the beta!

ficlet (dw/sja): up

Title: Up
Author: [livejournal.com profile] averita
Summary: They are all here at the end.
Rating: G
Word Count: ~880
A/N: This is obviously heavily inspired by the end of The Sarah Jane Adventures, and specifically, RTD's vision of how it should have ended. There have been a lot of tribute fics and I suppose this is one as well, but mostly it's me trying to make sense of RTD's idea (in no logical way) and also reassuring myself that Sarah Jane lives on, despite the end of the show. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] wild_force71 for the beta!
Disclaimer: Not mine.

So we sat at a picnic table and Lis asked me how I would end The Sarah Jane Adventures and I said that she couldn't just retire, could she? I said, "She'd do something magnificent, and then she'd make sure the kids were fine, and then she'd go...up!" "What d'you mean, up?" asked Lis, and she was laughing. "You mean, into the sky?" "Yes!" I said. "She'd go up. Onwards. Outwards. Into the stars. Just...up! D'you fancy that?" "Oh yes," said Lis. "That sounds nice." - Russell T. Davies

Title: Our Empty Rooms

Author: [livejournal.com profile] averita

Summary: They don’t talk much, these days, looking to books and the slide of skin to say what needs to be said.

A/N: You guys, I actually wrote fic! What is this? (400 words totally counts. It's been over a year and I'm very much in poetry mode at the moment.) This was written for [livejournal.com profile] adama_roslin's MOL, prompt "lonely". Spoilers for 4.5, set sometime after ADFMS.

Disclaimer: Not mine. Title comes from T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land, because I am creative.
