There I go, committing fanfic again!

When Gods Collide [AtS/BtVS, Illyra, Willow, implied Angel/Willow, FRC, written for [livejournal.com profile] monicaop]
At my personal archive.
At InsaneJournal.
At Dreamwidth.
At my writing journal.
At nha_fic.


In other news, I just realized that my Dreamwidth account ([dreamwidth.org profile] tmbreck) could be read as Too Much Breck. You'd tell me if there was too much of me, yeah? :)

Also, I'm trying to decide if I should bookmark my fic posts to communities in my delicious account if I'm only linking in those posts to other sites with the fic. I'm thinking not, as you usually don't have comments on those posts. I did, however, save them to my memories so that I knew which communities I was posting to. I didn't save the posts where I put the actual fic, because I have those already bookmarked in delicious. See how organized I am?

However, I am trying to figure out which communities I should post my fic to. And I should actually try posting them to Dreamwidth and Insanejournal communities, as well. And, of course, I need to hunt down a Star Trek beta as my long-term beta is not in the fandom and hasn't watched the show/movies anytime recently. Does anyone know of a place I can go to get Star Trek specific betas where it's pretty straight-forward how to do it? I'm looking for someone who's willing to beta no matter the pairing, character, and squick/trigger factor. I have a feeling I'm going to be going dark with many a character and pairing... If I manage to keep writing.

Speaking of fic; McChekov? Killing me here.

How is everyone's morning going?

Write Every Day

Managed to work on some more of that ficlet from the Federation Series I was working on yesterday. Then I got to writing more, and realized that it's so totally not part of the series. This is like.. post destruction of Vulcan and post break-up with Uhura. I have to make sure to write about the break-up in a way that is reasonable and manages not to vilify or demonize Uhura. I think I can mange it. Hopefully. Also, this isn't going to be anything happy and fluffy bunny. More like bordering on, if not fully living in the land of, creepy. And, for you, a snippet:
Bending his head, he places his lips against her neck and molds his body to her. When he feels guilt begin to surface in her, he gently bites down where her neck and shoulder meet and firmly places his hand between her thighs in a move he has learned is the quickest way to encourage her desire to override her conscience. While he admires her strong moral code, he cannot allow it to jeopardize what they have. As he sinks into her arousal, he can feel his body begin to respond and pulls her hips pulls her hips tighter against him.

Write Every Day

It was a hellacious weekend, thus the lack of W.E.D. posts. I missed writing Saturday, Sunday I wrote something that depressed the hell out of me, and Monday I wrote something personal that I never intend to share. Today, I worked on part of my Federation Series (regular 'verse companion to my AOS mirrorverse series). This is as of yet unbeta'd because it's not fleshed out enough for even my beta to see. However, you get a snippet!
Where his people repress passion, her people often use passion as a tool to express and deepen intimacy. He is aware she would be willing to forgo sexual contact out of respect for him. However, he is also aware she would not thrive in such a relationship and would eventually leave because of it. It is not an outcome he would prefer.

Djinn
[livejournal.com profile] djinn_fic / Djinn's Lair] - I could go through and individually list all of the stories I love, but that would be pretty much all of them. Just go to this site for much Chapel/Spock and Chapel/Kirk love. I haven't looked at the stuff outside of TOS yet, but given the quality of the TOS fic, I'm sure that it's well worth a read.

[livejournal.com profile] cards_slash
I'm a sucker for her McCoy/Spock, most notably her series beginning with FML. Then again, I'd never say no to her Kirk/McCoy, either. The threesomes? They also rock. Go check for yourself!

slash4femme
[[livejournal.com profile] slash4femme / [dreamwidth.org profile] slash4femme] After you go through this list, {which some of slash4femme's fics are on} head over to her journal and read all you can devour. I'm especially a big fan of her McCoy/Spock Prime fics. Beautiful work.

Check My Geek Math

Earth --> Vulcan (a little over) 16 light years *
(TOS / AOS era) Warp 8 = 512 x the speed of light**
1 light year would take a year to travel (at the speed of light) ***

So, this is my math:

365 (days)
x16
------
5840 (days)
÷512
------
11.40625 (days)


So, by my calculations, at warp 8. it would take about 11 days (more, actually, but I don't know how much 'a little over' is) to get to Vulcan from Earth.

Over 16 fucking years at sub-light speed, which Enterprise would be traveling after ejecting the warp core.

...

I'm thinking they got a tow home. You agree? Of course, maybe they found a base on the way. Yeah, I just now thought of that. I R Smrt!

Making a Loud Noise Until Rescued

"I thought," said Piglet earnestly, "that if Eeyore stood at the bottom of the tree, and if Pooh stood on Eeyore's back, and if I stood on Pooh's shoulders----"

"And if Eeyore's back snapped suddenly, then we could all laugh. Ha ha! Amusing in a quiet way," said Eeyore, "but not really helpful."

"Well," said Piglet meekly, "I thought----"

"Would it break your back, Eeyore?" asked Pooh, very much surprised.

"That's what would be so interesting, Pooh. Not being quite sure till afterwards."
