My  masterlists, Archive of Our Own and ff.net links are on right. Go on and friend me if you like my stories and I'll probably friend you back.  If that is too much of a commitment, you can track the fandom/paring/character of your choice.  PRETTY PLEASE DO NOT CROSPOST COMMENTS ON MY JOURNAL TO FACEBOOK. I'm old school and like to keep my secret internet life secret.

The above banner is made by me (image source here) as is the header (image source here).

Title: In Imbolic
Arthor: duh_i_read
Fandom: Angel the Series, BtVS
Warning: Cannon type violence, bastardized pagan rituals, vampires being vampires
Spoilers: "Darla" and tangentially any episode that flashes back to Angel's curse.
Disclaimer: Don't own 'em.
Summery:If China taught Darla nothing, it was that a little sentiment remained in her, like the last mouthful of blood that remained stubbornly in the vein, thick and bitter.

AN: Imbolic is a real pagan holiday, but doesn't involve killing people. The latin roughly translates to "may the spark of Brigid warm those that are lonely, whose hearts are cold and lifeless".

So I'm not dead. I am though, on a fandom hiatus.

I'm still watching stuff, and squeeing about stuff (Welcome to Night Vale, anyone?), but RL sort of reared up and devoured the time I would normally use to write and read fic. So I'm still gonna be on hiatus for a while.

I've been pretty MIA this year, but I' hoping to slink back onto livejournal and lurk on everyone's journal.

A better balance of RL and fandom life because damn I just disappeared off a cliff for a while and I MISS MY FANDOM LIFE AND MAKING THINGS AND SQUEEING ABOUT UNPOPULAR PARINGS.

Title: Speech Sounds
Arthor: duh_i_read
Fandom: 221B Baker Towers (adaptation of Sherlock Holmes Mythos, see arthor note)
Characters: James Moriarty
Disclaimer: how do you disclaim a public domain work? 
Summery:James learned that the best disguises were people’s expectations.

AN: spohistry on tumblr had this brillent idea of an adaptation of Sherlock Holmes where Sherlock is a poor person of color living in the rough part of London. Which, btw, is the best idea I've heard in forever. Lots of folks on tumblr have contributed ideals and art and fic and this is my humble offering of POC!Moriarty.  
Kind of inspired by Andrew Scott's performance of  Moriarty, but contains no spoilers and requires no previous knowledge of the BBC Sherlock verse.

Title: Certain Obscure Things
Author: duh_i_read
Chapters: 1/?
Rating: R
Warnings: In this chapter, descriptions of violence, unintentional gun play, consent issues and sexual obsession.
Spoilers: Series 2
Summary: Jim couldn’t kill Sherlock yet, not when he just began to whet his curiosity. Series two, reconfigured.

AN: This story owes everything to mugenmine, without whom this story would have only been a terrible kink meme fill, and not anything approaching  quality, character and plot. I can't thank you enough, but it won't stop me from trying. Special thanks to wanderkid for the fly-by read and for pointing out the obvious. Any and all remaining mistakes are mine.

The second the Bee Gee’s crooned from his pocket, the tension between Jim and Sherlock snappedCollapse )

AN: Basically flash fic I wrote in response to the most depressing piece of Cabin Pressure fanart I'd ever seen and posted on my tumblr. Check out the fanart here, but TW for Suicide

Title: The Spark
Arthor: duh_i_read
Fandom: Dollhouse/The Hunger Games Fusion
Spoilers: Er, vague ones for all of Dollhouse and The Hunger Games/Catching Fire

Sooooo I've started watching Supernatural for real, and I'm kinda obsessed. Like up-until-three-am-watching-netflix-ignoring-my-roomates-and-our-friends kind of obsessed.

But, I need two things from ya'll: first ALL THE FIC RECS. Paring is immaterial as long as it's well written and won't spoil me for anything past season 4. Fics about minor characters are always a plus, and I won't turn down crack fics and AU's.

Second thing, in my limited exploration into fic, I've seen a shitton of Real Person Fic. I mean, I try to ignore most RPF (with a few exceptions of course) but there seems to be more then I've ever seen in any fandom. Is this just me spending too many years in small fandoms?

Title:She always has an alibi, and one or two to spare
Fandom:Sherlock (TV)
Characters: Molly Hooper, Sherlock Holmes
Spoilers: Major ones for Reichenbach Fall
Disclaimer: I'm not ACN, Moffat or Gatiss.
Summery: If only Sherlock knew.
AN: Written for the We Could Have Had It A-A-All comment ficathon. Title taken from and inspired by T.S. Eliot's "Macavity- The Mystery Cat".

So, you ever been on a vacation, or a class trip, and you're so enamored with the newness of being someone else and meeting new people that you kinda forget people back home and all the cozy corners of your home and one day you realize how long you've been away and you miss everything you left, even the shitty gross parts and all of a sudden your just tired of being away from home?

Yeah, this is how I'm feeling about tumblr.

The only reason i haven't started cross posting from dreamwidth, honestly, is that I can't figure out how to credit the makers of my userpics over there like I have them now.

Anyone know how to do that?

I wrote about 800 words about why I seriously enjoyed A Scandal in Belgravia. This does not mean I don't recognize the problematic points, but really, what I find problematic are not gonna be the same for everyone so really, I just can't even muster more then a token 'oh yeah, that's gonna piss people on the internet off' or 'oh yeah thats kinda fucked up' or 'yeah I see why people would be angry about that'. But I myself don't feel fiery feminist rage about the episode. I am fascinated by Irene and while the narrative leaves much to be desired, I'm probably going to re-watch the whole thing every day this week.

I think I might have anger fatigue.

Characters: Faith, Mayor Wilkins

AN: A Faith/the Mayor holiday AU. Unbeta'ed. Title taken from the christmas carol "The Christians and the Pagan's".

Took the GRE this morning, working on both a Buffy and Dollhouse fic that I hope to have finished sometime this month and oh do I feel hype.

So, meme time!

Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you between one and three sentences from that story.
