A better week! Less coughing! Marginally less really distracting fic reading! More! Writing! 

And a couple new super-enchanting epic fic ideas that I am definitely not allowed to start writing. 

…Yet.

WIPs currently active: 7. Down by one from last week because!!! I finished the ageplay!! And somebody I will have run it by enough people to get up the courage to actually post it!

Words written this week: 6,394

WIPs that got no words this week: 1, Threetoo’s bathtime, but I swear I’m getting that one finished next. 

WIPs that did get words this week: 

Codename: Aluminum Bastard (aka broken dick epic): 159, but to be fair I had Bucky say a REALLY COMPLICATED THING. And then, you know, needed to go away and think about that for another week, I guess?

Born in the Blood: 590, and I am definitely… definitely almost sure what happens next. Really.

Slavefic #4 (the one about Steve): 305

Bucky/Steve consensual sexy ageplay nobody asked for: 4,276, and, did I mention, IT IS DONE. :D

Post-CACW woobie!Sam/Steve: 366

How the Winter Soldier Met the Hulk: 175

Gentle Dom!Steve/Bucky Omorashi PWP: 523

WIPs currently active: 6… maybe 8?

Words written this week: 3,284

WIPs that got no words this week: 2 - Born in the Blood and the slavefic.

WIPs that did get words this week:

Codename: Aluminum Bastard (aka broken dick epic): 552, new total word count 157,951, ticking along. Slowly.

Bucky/Steve consensual sexy ageplay nobody asked for: 777, new total 14,211.

Post-CACW woobie!Sam/Steve: 568, so close to turning the corner to the beginning of the end.

Pillow Box: 1,240, which was the entirety of #2 - One-Star Review.

[Here be stuff that may or may not actually be in progress, because I was out of sorts and working on random shit.]

Ace!Bucky/Demisexual!Steve: 174

The Hulk/Bucky story EVERYBODY asked for: 73. There were… a lot of things to figure out before I could write anything. Also the trajectory from HTP terrifying captivity mutual-dub-con sex to RIDICULOUS CURTAINFIC is… possibly a built in bait and switch that will satisfy no one?? But whatever, it’s my ridiculous self-indulgent Hulk/Bucky bunny and I’ve written 73 words of it so it’s probably premature to worry about its reception.

This week I treated fic writing just like professional writing, in that I got stuck and then (mostly) unstuck, deleted a lot of stuff, and didn’t do any work on it after 6:30pm or on weekends. 

WIPs currently active: 6

Words written this week: 3,490

WIPs that got no words this week: 2 - Same two as last week, troublingly: Woobie!Sam and Threetoo’s bath.

WIPs that did get words this week:

Codename: Aluminum Bastard (aka broken dick epic): 1,170, new total word count 157,397. I got unstuck on the current chapter, I think, now I just have to… write it.

Born in the Blood: 1,162, and I finished Chapter 8! And posted it!! Now… to figure out Chapter 9.

Slavefic #4 (the one about Steve): 411, after deleting pretty much all the words I wrote last week. Still managed to be further forward afterward, but… not much, obviously.

Bucky/Steve consensual sexy ageplay nobody asked for: 747, and getting pretty close to… maybe… finishing? sometime? I think?

This was a better week in writing than last week! Still not as much as I would have liked, but when is it ever? 

WIPs currently active: 6 (I finished something!)

Words written this week: 5,660

WIPs that got no words this week: 2 - Woobie!Sam and Threetoo’s bath (how do I have writer’s block on BATHTIME, fml.)

WIPs that did get words this week:

Sibylla ex Ampulla (formerly anonymous trash meme fill): 1,473 to FINISH IT and now it is posted!

Codename: Aluminum Bastard (aka broken dick epic): 901, finished a chapter and brought the total word count to 156,214. Now floundering a bit because I was on that chapter for two months and don’t quite know where the next chapter is going.

Born in the Blood: 668, now veryvery close to being done with Chapter 8, um, as soon as I figure out where Chapter 8 should end exactly.

Slavefic #4 (the one about Steve): 597, but I am a bit dubious about keeping them.

Bucky/Steve consensual sexy ageplay nobody asked for: 2,021, bringing the total word count to 12,602. Now the undisputed most disturbing thing I’m writing!

This week was not a good one for writing–partly for fun reasons (I was at [community profile] vividcon from Thursday evening to Sunday!!!) and partly for un-fun reasons (my anxiety got kicked into REALLY HIGH GEAR on Tuesday and it took me until Thursday to be functional enough to, say, spend a weekend interacting fairly normally with other people, let alone writing anything.) SO! Let’s see how far I got in a not-so-great week, shall we?

WIPs currently active: 7 (I decided to put the Bucky/T’Challa fealty kink on the shelf until the field is a little less crowded.)

Words written this week: 3,188

WIPs that got no words this week: 3 - Codename: Aluminum Bastard, the babyfic, and the ageplay.

WIPs that did get words this week:

Slavefic #4 (the one about Steve): 1,621, bringing the total to 31,086, but not actually bringing me closer to the end of the story due to exciting! new! unforeseen! plot development! /o\

Post-CACW depressed woobie Sam/Steve fic: 581, for a total of 5,177 so far. I am… not 100% sure what happens next, but we are sort of turning a corner somewhere in the near future. 

Current anonymous trashmeme fill: 884, close enough to being finished that it is a bit embarrassing every time I work on it that I am not just. finishing. already.

Pillow Box Fill #2 - Bathtime: 102, which is what happens when I get antsy because I haven’t written ANYTHING in DAYS and then sit down to write something and realize I still do not have the wherewithal to actually write for more than a few minutes. Still, better than nothing!

…Because sometimes people wonder what I’m writing, and I thought it might be useful to post regularly-ish about where all my words are going? So! A status update on the WIPs I’m juggling.

WIPs currently in progress: 8

Words written this week: 6,761

WIPs that got no words this week: 2 - Codename: Aluminum Bastard and the Bucky/T’Challa fealty kink epic

WIPs that did get words this week:

Born in the Blood: 1,144 words this week, so I’ve now got a little over 3,200 words of Chapter 8. One scene left to write before I can actually post a new chapter!!

Slavefic #3 (which I guess now is #4? the one about Steve): 1,003 words this week, so it now stands at 29,457 words. Two or three chapters to go, maybe another 10-15,000 words? Oh man, it is weird to think about actually finishing this, it has taken soooo looooong. But we’re getting there!

Bucky/Steve consensual sexy ageplay nobody asked for: 1,441 words this week, so it now stands at 10,040 words. Two major events left in the story, so maybe only 6-8,000 words before I can unleash this particular unholiness on the world, completing my stressed-out-spring trifecta of “Bucky is extremely vulnerable and Steve takes care of him” h/c stories. 

Post-CACW depressed woobie Sam/Steve fic: 589 words this week, for a total of 4,595. I think I have reached the lowest point Sam gets to in this story, so now I gotta start inflecting upward, maybe another 5-10,000 words to go.

Current anonymous trashmeme fill: 1,258 words this week, maybe two or three thousand left to go. Mmmmm, fluffy post-trash-recovery porn. (Yeah, I am the most anonymous, you cannot possibly crack my code.)

Pillow Box Fill #2 - Bathtime: 1,326 words this week, none of which involve Threetoo being in the actual bath yet. I am not good at writing short tumblr ficlets that are actually short, guys. But now I just need to write the bath part, which cannot possibly be more than a couple thousand words, right? Like. 5k, tops.

Bucky’s broken dick epic (aka the WIP codenamed Aluminum Bastard): 41 Chapters / 155,153 words
Act III so far, spanning fffive? days of internal time: 8 Chapters / 31,653 words
Stuff remaining to write in Act III: Maybe... four more chapters? I’ve been revising my thoughts on where this Act ends and the next one starts.
Broken dick status: Agonizingly almost fixed but still not.
Acts left to write after this one: IV, and V. Which means we’re actually turning the corner into things… getting… better? Which is baffling, after over 22 months of writing everything being awful. I am consoling myself with some last-ditch awfulness before we turn the corner, but that corner is getting awfully close now.
Target posting date: IDK, probably before Infinity War? Right?

Bucky’s broken dick epic (aka the WIP codenamed Aluminum Bastard): 120,000 words exactly
Act II so far, spanning 12 days of internal time: 64,310 words
Events remaining in Act II: I AM ON THE LAST ONE BASICALLY???
Broken dick status: …Complicated, and surrounded by bad decisions.
Acts left to write: III, IV, and V. Act III, for those playing along at home, is where the main part of the story actually happens. *facepalm*
Target posting date: I mean. What is time. What are dates. What are goals? It’ll happen someday.

Bucky's broken dick epic (Codename: Aluminum Bastard): 100,192 words
Act II so far, spanning 6 days of internal time: 44,510 words
Events remaining in Act II: 6.5
Acts after this one: 3. Acts. hahaha ha ha. /o\
Target posting date: April 15, 2016. (Which is to say: three weeks before US release of Captain America: Civil War, which will put this a full two movies away from canon instead of one + Ant-Man.)
Confidence in hitting target posting date: hahahaha ha ha WHERE IS THE GIN.

I'll just. Be lying on the floor questioning my life choices.

(Today was actually a good day for working on this story but OH MY GOD I SWORE NO MORE QUARTER MILLION WORD STORIES AFTER THE LAST QUARTER MILLION WORD STORY, AND I MEANT IT. THANKS, BUCKY.)

So on Sunday night I finished (!!!!!) writing my underage Teen Wolf hookerfic! It stands at 120,089 words and has yet to be betaed (or even... looked at, toward the end there) but OMG DONE.

And I started canon review for my Yuletide story and I'm really pretty sure my plan for this story is going to work! So! December is going SMASHINGLY.

(Except for, speaking of smashing, how I still don't know whether my car is totaled, twelve days after the accident, but, you know. I'll take what I can get.)
dira: Allison Argent, smiling delightedly (Allison - Smile)
To the surprise of perhaps EVERYONE, I am actually still on pace for Nano! Yesterday's target was 30,000 words, and I ended the day with 30,724. (That's only the words that count for Nano--the total word count on the hookerfic right now is 81,253.) Even better, the end is sort of in sight! I'm into the last set of stuff that happens in the middle of the story, before the end starts kicking in! I'm not going to make it too far into the end by the end of November or the 50,000-word mark, and frankly I'm a little unclear* about how the end even works, but. Ending! It's gonna happen! I'M GOING TO FINISH THIS STORY YOU GUYS.

The thing that actually kind of blows my mind about my Nanowrimo productivity is that, in addition to writing 30,000 words in 18 days for my Nano story... I've also written about 17,000 words of other fic in those same 18 days. So in case anyone was wondering how strong is my fixation on Bucky Barnes: strong enough to compel me to write a total of 47,000 words of fic in 18 days. THANKS, BUCKY. I reward you by... having two different trash fics in progress right now. But also a story where totally nice things happen to Bucky! Um. That one is progressing slower than most, but still.

I am also also somehow cultivating a bit of a... social life? In amidst all of this? Going places, meeting people. A bunch of it is Nanowrimo-focused write-ins, but some of it isn't, it's just me actually getting out and being social. I'm a little scared that I'm going to hit December, stop frantically juggling all of this, and just collapse and do nothing at all, but... even if I do, I'll have written lots of stuff and met lots of people! So. ONWARD!



*I somehow got distracted in mid-sentence and initially typed "happy" for "unclear," which is a typically optimistic Freudian slip from me.
dira: Derek Hale, alone in the woods and shirtless as usual. (Derek - alone in the woods)
Stiles/Derek fic for the "forced soulbonding" square of my [community profile] hc_bingo card: 10,360 words

On the bright side I'm... pretty sure I'm already firmly in the middle of the story. Firmly.

This thing is not going over 30,000 words, is what I am saying.

DONE, DONE, DONE.

(And then getting betaed etc. but DONE, HOLY SHIT, I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S OVER.)
dira: Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier (Default)
Generation Kill wolf-verse Iraq story: 110,290 words
Scenes left: 5-ish. Like five actual specific scenes and then it will be done. o.O

!!!!!


I actually thought I might finish this tonight, but I am either dealing with really obnoxious medication side effects or a summer cold or maybe both, so I abruptly ran out of spoons around 7:30 PM and that was it for writing.

SO CLOSE, THOUGH. SO. CLOSE.

dira: Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier (Default)
Generation Kill wolf-verse Iraq story: 100,117 words
Events left in Act V: 7.5
After that: THE GREAT UNKNOWN. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN WRITING THIS STORY. WHO AM I WHEN I'M NOT WRITING THIS STORY?

...Oh wait after that I'm editing this story. OKAY GOT IT.

Odds of finishing this story within the next 15,000 words: very good, unless I get really carried away by bullet point #14. Which ... is a possibility. It's such a FUN bullet point. Like, actually fun, not watching-characters-suffer-and-laughing-my-maniacal-laugh fun. (Maybe a little bit of that kind of fun).

STILL, THOUGH. THIS STORY IS GOING TO END. SOOOOON.
dira: Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier (Stiles - open-mouthed)
My Teen Wolf hookerfic is over 10,000 words.

So I guess I am for sure actually writing this now.
dira: Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier (Default)
Generation Kill wolf-verse Iraq story: 90,167 words
Events left in Act V: Nine. ish.
Acts after this one: NONE. THIS IS IT. THIS IS MY CLOSING ARGUMENT. I CAN STOP WATCHING TV.

Odds of finishing this story in the next 15,000 words: uh. I wouldn't put money on it.
