winter: (objects - writing)
As an end to a hellish half-week, I'm at the office at noon on a Saturday. No time like the present...

To reiterate, meme rules:

The Hypothetical AU Meme: Take any one of the fandoms you know I write in (or think I should), and give me a type of AU (space opera AU, pirate AU, superhero AU, Ancient Rome, etc). I will then explain what story from your chosen fandom I would write for your chosen type of AU.

Arabwel: Once Upon a Time in Mexico as done by Tolkien )

Trobadora: Coldfire superhero AU )

RKold: CCD in a Gundam/Space Soap Opera type AU )

Sukeban: Pirates of the Caribbean in the Middle Earth )

That's enough for today, since I'm through with the reports as well :) Other four to be done later.
winter: (Star Wars - queen)
I completely forgot about my [ profile] potcfest fic ~_~ Thanks to [ profile] etrangere for reminding me.

Title: The King and the Queen
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Elizabeth, Calypso
Disclaimer: Disney owes all but Elizabeth's hairpins.

In the end, there are things to be settled between the King and the Queen

[ profile] roz_mcclure is apparently my LJ-friend two times removed or something via [ profile] fyrie and [ profile] ashfae, but what matters is that her POTC:AWE recap rocks to high heavens:

part 1

part 2

*drums fingers waiting for part 3*
winter: (Star Wars - queen)
Heatwaves in May are decidedly unfair, but at least it meant I didn't feel guilty about spending a Saturday morning at the cinema. Let's hear it for air conditioning.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End; spoilers within )
winter: (emote - elegantly wasted)
*flops* I wrote most of these twice, because my scratchbook file got corrupted.

For [ profile] shineko: Pirates of the Caribbean, 100 words

Guidance )

For [ profile] ciciaye: Angel the Series, 100 words

Vanity Varnish )

For [ profile] elefwin: Star Wars, 130 words

Silent )

For [ profile] fyrie: Phantom of the Opera, 114 words, same universe as Singing Songs In My Head

Hide Your Face )

For [ profile] kyrre: Batman Begins, 125 words

Communicativa )

For [ profile] alice_montrose: Roses for Lucifer, 160 words

Practical Applications )

Bonus question: Can someone give me an Elisabeth idea, preferably something featuring Sisi herself with a side of Death? She wants fic, I'm fresh out of bunnies.
winter: (Star Wars - on the edge)
Note to self: add tags later. No bloody time. A net cafe's harder to find in Gdansk than in freaking Stezyca!

For [ profile] alighiera: Van Helsing


For [ profile] arabwel: Once Upon A Time In Mexico

Vanity )

For [ profile] fuumasfrog: Pirates of the Caribbean

Sisterhood )
winter: (Star Wars - droid ninja)
First of all, [ profile] fyrie's Dance of Death: Obligatto, PWP with breathplay, utterly enjoyable even if you don't know the characters :> And do read to compare with my upcoming PWP with breathplay, which was written because [ profile] fyrie and Herbert are evil to the extreme.

It's been a while since I recced anything by [ profile] guede_mazaka, because she's been writing Supernatural lately and I've the vaguest idea about it. But now she's back in POTC fandom with a vengeance, and she's the only person who can make me believe in Sparrington and want more, too. In Judas Kiss she does it beautifully. And Blooded is Will/Norrington as Norrington searches for an anchor and Will's unable to change, stark and violent and confused just like the inside of Norrington's head.

Finally, [ profile] shezan wrote me a neat little vignette on Vader and imperial bureaucracy, with Piett, my favourite Imperial :D
winter: (fandom - weaver of stories)
Over the past four days, I've seen three critically-dissed movies. I've enjoyed every second of every one of them. In order of viewing:

Thursday - The Libertine; no spoilers )

Saturday - Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest; vague visual spoilers included )

Sunday - Wu Ji (The Promise); no spoilers, but a lot of squeeing )

Tomorrow I'm going to the cinema again. Partly to combat the heat, but mostly because I loved Wu Ji so much, I need to see it again. And buy it on DVD. I have also hunted down several Nicholas-Tse-as-Wuhuan pictures to be made into icons. He's spiffy.

For [ profile] circe_tigana's 882 ways to appease the heathen gods challenge. I wanted to do more, but won't have the time before I leave, and by the time I get back it looks like the challenge will be over - there's well over 700 drabbles already, with just a few of them being off-topic (I trust Circe'll be vigilant about deleting those).

~a study in gold~
Perhaps this reeks a little of Sleepy Hollow )

~Hungarian blood~
Underworld crossover )


Off to war her Johnny went )

~Throwing Shapes~

Obligatory OUATIM crossover - alas, on perusal not the first one )

Since I won't make it in time for the challenge, my last drabble will probably evolve into a vignette. Ah well. A chance to revisit an old fandom at least.

Merry Christmas or equivalent holiday to all!
