I hadn't actually, they were still on my "to read" list. And what a great way to procrastinate that was ^^

Oh, well that worked out nicely, then. :lol: Hard to remember who's read what after awhile. Glad you enjoyed them. ^^

Ah, procrastination. My old friend... :thumb:

Re: Fan fiction

Thanks for the lovely review of my latest drabble, Philippa! :grin: I had an idea that was just perfectly drabble-sized. I've had some ideas lately, and I'm trying to ease back into writing again after having fallen out of the groove. Fingers crossed. :thumb: Glad you enjoyed it. ^^

I haven't posted about my occasionally-updated drabble series on here, I don't think, so I'll give it a little plug. The latest drabble, and all the rest, can be found here. Enjoy! :grin:

Re: Fan fiction

Getting close to finishing my latest fanfic experiment, which I'll be posting on ff.net when I'm finished. Hopefully before the summer ends. :lol: Then my next project will hopefully be a proper, longer fic with a plot. Not a great summer for writing, but what can you do? I'll probably get inspired when I go back to school. :lol:

Thanks, Maartje! :hug: It's done in another fic format I'm experimenting with. It's a little different, but it's let me use lots of little ideas I've had in mind, but not plotted out completely. Hopefully I'll finish it soon, and then you can read it. :grin:

Re: Fan fiction

Just a note that the first part of my new fanfic is up on ff.net. Titled "Five Things That Never Happened to The New Avengers...and One That Did," it's an experiment--a series of unconnected AU vignettes showing all sorts of scenarios that could have happened to the characters, but didn't. Each one is complete in itself, and I'll try to post a new one every two or three days. You can find it here:

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7337398/1/

I hope you enjoy it. :grin:

Re: Fan fiction

My latest fic, inspired by Dandy and LoM, is up on ff.net. It's called "John, I'm Only Dancing" (Bowie-inspired title, of course :wink: ), and you can find it here:

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7540304/1/

It's very AU, and very much a character piece, with one or two twists in store (hopefully :wink: ).

Enjoy! :grin:

Good to see that you've picked up writing the ol' familiar G&P fanfic Timeless. :d I'll definitely read this one as soon as I have a little more time/feel less stressed

I'm trying to slowly ease back into it after not feeling very inspired for the past few months. Dandy gave me the idea for "John, I'm Only Dancing", and I just couldn't let it go until I wrote it, so it's kind of got me back into the writing mood. It's actually the least-Purdey/Gambitesque piece I've done, though they are in a fair chunk of it (one scene in particular makes me feel all fuzzy inside :wub: ). It's a strange fic for that and a lot of other reasons. They got a pretty good look-in in "Five Things", though, so I'm not neglecting them. :wink:

Next up, I've got a non-TNA story I wrote back in the spring that I want to polish up and post, and then I've got ideas for a brief sequel to my Avengers/Sapphire and Steel crossover "Carbon Copy." After that I don't know what I'll do--arc? Stand-alone stuff? I'll think on it. But there will be more Purdey and Gambit in one form or anoher. ^^

Hope you enjoy the fic when you get the chance to read it, though. I know better than anyone how university kills your time and your brain. :doubt:

Uni can be a real creativity killer sometimes. I just don't feel the urge to write or read (even novels) much when I've got assignments to hand in and scientific articles/books to read. So yeah, I admire your writing skills/strength. :wink:

Ugh, that's the truth. I have heaps of books and magazines sitting all over, but I spend all week reading hundreds of pages of dense text, and I just don't have the mental energy to read for pleasure. And I've had a lot of assignments this term, so writing is hard to squeeze in, too. I'm hoping to try and at least finish a short piece before exams start killing me, though. Thanks, Maartje. :hug:

No problem. :wink: I'm kinda busy myself--been studying for exams for a couple of weeks now, and I have another two and a half weeks to go, with the first ones coming up this week, so all I've been doing is eating, sleeping, studying, and going to class, so I can relate. Whenever you get to it, it's all good. :hug:

Re: Fan fiction

First new fic of the New Year, guys! :hyper: Just a little character piece for Purdey that I was inspired to do by one of Dandy's graphics and a Killers lyric. It's called "I Hear That Good Girls Die" and a Killers lyric. You can find it here:

Re: Fan fiction

So glad that you're back to writing again. :hug: I've missed Purdey and Gambit, I can tell you that. I love how you've made up characters (uncle Ellie) that I completely forget are fake when I read your stories.

Great job.

Aw, thank you dear. :hug: I've kind of missed writing for them myself, though ironically now I'm back, I'm writing for Class Act which has no Purdey or Gambit at all! :lol: But once that's finished, I have a sequel to "Carbon Copy" in mind, and then I'm really, really hoping I can get back into the arc. Because the next story in it is THE Purdey/Gambit fic,the first idea I ever had, and the one that I wrote my first ever fanfic for. It needs rewriting (badly), and I want to get it right, which is why I keep procrastinating I suppose. But I'm really trying to get my thoughts together for it and make a concerted effort to finally get it done. Fingers crossed! :yes:

But until then, I'm easing myself back into the groove with shorter stories. I'm glad you enjoyed this one, though I have to confess that I can't take all the credit for Uncle Elly--he popped up in "Dirtier by the Dozen." I just use him shamelessly for my own ends. :lmao:

Re: Fan fiction

I'm trying to get back into writing again. I meant to try and get back into the habit over the summer, but it didn't quite work out that way, though I did manage to finish two unfinished stories I had sitting on my hard drive, the first of which I've just started posting. It's called "The Favour", and it's on ff.net and AO3. I feel rather rusty, so I don't know quite how it turns out, but it does slot into my arc continuity in-between "Merry Christmas, Mr. Gambit" and "Brazil", and Emma has a rather large role in it, so it felt different to write. It kind of fleshes out Gambit and Emma's relationship, and shows why they're fairly close by "Brazil." Anyway, if you're interested, it's here:

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8512869/1/

I'll try to update it at reasonably regular intervals, but you know how school can be. Enjoy! :grin:

Re: Fan fiction

It's one of those predicaments where I haven't written much in awhile, but the one thing I have is piece of semi-smut, only because it's me, it's talky smut--more talky than smutty, to be honest. And half my brain thinks I ought to post it to ff.net for Valentine's, and the other half is absolutely terrified by the idea and wants to flee in the opposite direction. Angsting about your own writing--a fanfic tradition. :lol:
