For:[profile] jankato and everyone who said something nice to me yesterday
Summary: From District 10, Tributes Patrick Stumph(18) and Bebe Rexha(13). May the Odds Be Ever In Their Favor.

Or

Patrick doesn't want to fight but growing up in the cattle/butchery center of District 10 did give him a few skills. He's one of the lucky few with a talent to perform in the Opening Ceremonies required musical pageantry so he will do that too. He will let them groom him and fluff him and do whatever they need to because Patrick wants to live damn it. He wants to live.

!!!!YULETIDE!!!!

OH MAN YOU GUYS YULETIDE! This is my first Yuletide in two years and I wrote things! I was gifted things! Let me show you them. ♥_♥ First my prezzies ♥_♥  )

Also, I wrote. I wrote for the first time in a very long time and the things I wrote were deeply telling of where my head's at lately. They were all churned out in under three hours(not counting betaing/edits/rewrites) in bursts of creativity I havent experienced since I went back to working full time. They're real shorts and I'm exceedingly proud of all of them. I did something original with them, things that I've never done before even if it was just trying a new fandom so, if its okay I'm going to talk about process and stuff. I havent had a chance to do that in ages and all of the stories are under 3,000 words so they're good places to do it.

1)Title: Zack Don't Surf
For: queenofinsanity6
Fandom: World War Z - Max Brooks
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Choose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Pairing: OFC/OMC
Summary: Pensacola Beach, Florida: An interview with one of the founding members of The Santa Rosa Island Surf Patrol, the first prevention unit to use surfboards as a means to police and prevent zombies emerging from the Gulf of Mexico from reaching the shore.
My Offical Yuletide Fandom Assignment was World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War (the book, not the movie - they don't even compare). If you havent read it, it's basically Shoah for a fictional war. Survivors of the war all over the world share their stories with an interviewer who is recording them so that they're not lost to time - the same way Shoah records the first-person stories of Holocaust survivors. So now that you know the source, time to talk fic.

First off - the name. I havent been so damn proud of a title in AGES. Zack is what the people in the book call zombies much like American soldiers in the Vietnam conflict called the Vietcong soldiers Charlie. If you've ever seen Apocalypse Now - arguably the best Vietnam flick ever(arguably - my favorite though)- you know that there is a big emphasis on surfing in the movie revolving around Robert Duvall as a slightly crazy Lt. Col. Kilgore, notable for the line "I love the smell of Napalm in the morning...smells like victory" whose whole platoon were surf-happy. His whole troop are in the middle of an active battle and he decides, hey, time to surf! Six foot swells! The protest is that Charlie owns the point but Kilgore declares "Charlie don't surf!" Same concept here only zombies instead of communist Vietnamese. Yeah. I love it. So much. It just feels right given the content is a surf patrol for zombies that move through water and need to be stopped. I'm genuinely proud of it.

The rest of it was less easy as I spent ages trying to figure out what the actual fuck to do with this. Ages. I couldn't figure it out. Then, literally the day of the deadline it hit me like a storm surge wave - this a fandom built on personal survivor accounts so in order to write something for this fandom I had to go to my own survivor account. If you've been following me for any length of time, you know that I had my personal war with living in Florida and Tallahassee played a roll in the books as a relative safe zone so I figured - fuck it. I'll write what I know. Isnt that what everyone always says? I grew up in the location I used and lived their until I went to college and then on all my breaks. You know want to see some shit go to my tags and click hurricane, real life, family, or go to my very first posts where i talk about updating from my then boyfriends desktop because I was homeless due to housing destruction. It's not an exaggeration when I say my peer group were devastated before we were ably to leave that area. 9/11 opened our high school experience, two wars filled our middle years, and devastating hurricanes closing out our adolescence. Now my peers are dropping like flies. Literally every single character in Zack Don't Surf is named after someone from my graduating class who is now dead.

The story started with a male voice and a fabricated name but I stalled and deleted it. I felt that it was in keeping with the truth of WWZ to share my own losses through the narrative so thats what I did. Jenna, my protagonist, is not living my life. Her trauma is not my trauma but the places she went and love are the places I went and love and the keen sense of loss is my own. I left a large chunk of my heart on the page in Zack Don't Surf. If you want to take a look at my heart as it relates to the place that will always feel like home, even when I have a new place that feels like home, you should go read this one. I havent been truly proud of something I wrote in a long time. It was an experiment in epistolary/interview format to fit the book style and I think it worked. I'd love to know what yall think too. Also if you have any questions about the area - the culture, the lay out of the the Pensacola area, the Navy presence and its effect on the city, my personal experiences, or anything else please ask. I welcome them.


2)Title: Dominic and Submission
For: Opalsong
Fandom: The Fast and the Furious (2001), Fast and the Furious Series
Rating: Mature
Warning: Choose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Pairing: Brian O'Conner/Dominic Toretto
Summary: Brian has hidden his submissive orientation most of his life out of necessity more than desire and he's been fine. Really. Until he meets Dominic Toretto then fine doesn't really fit the situation anymore. A BDSM-universe AU of The Fast and the Furious.
This was an Emergency Pinch Hit. It came out at the very last minute and was written in about an hour of glorious inspiration. I haven't written like that in months. It was beautiful and clear and bright. It was also nice to be able to contribute at the 11th hour rather than sliding in at the last minute for once.

This is also Baby's first BDSM-universe. I've been trying to write one of these for ages and for some reason this one just exploded out of me. Unlike the other ones I've read where submissive or dominant dynamic is tied to sexuality, I decided to equate it closer to a cisgender. Because of that, Brian being in hiding is less about him hating who he is and more about making choices he needs to in order to get by. I'm just so tired of D/s and ABOverses where the submissive or omega hates BEING submissive or omega - hates the very nature of who they are and fight it tooth and nail to the point of where if it is in fact equated with gender(which it is most often in ABO) it would equate with gender dysphoria and yet never treated as such. I also learned about Dr. James Barry aka the first female doctor who lived her entire life as a man around the same time as I wrote this which is where part of the idea came from. It made me think about the fact that sometimes there are reasons not to live as who you are but that doesn't mean you have to hate it. You can like who you are and hate the system or prejudices or dangers that make you need to had that while still valuing your own identity. I don't know if Dr. Barry felt that way but the idea of hiding your cisgender to pursue your dream to due so made me think about this stuff. So, this was an experiment in the difference between hiding and hating. With elements of desire and sexiness thrown in. Then I left the ending open which is something I almost never do. That was rough for me, giving myself permission to just walk away with the door ajar but it was *right* and I have to believe learning how to do that means I'm growing as a writer, doesn't it?

This is also one of the first time's I've gotten a request for a sequel from pretty much every single commenter. I think maybe one person didn't ask. That's new. EVERYONE asked I'm thrown quite frankly. I didnt think it'd cause that strong a reaction. But it did. So, I may be doing a rewatch of the movies because there are definitely elements of the dynamic world I want to explore.


3)Title: Killing To Save Lives Is Like Screwing for Virginity
For: ijemanja, raedbard, 100indecisions
Fandom The Cabin in the Woods (2011)
Rating: Mature
Warning: Suicide, Graphic Depictions Of Violence, Major Character Death
Pairing: Gen
Summary: He is no Fool and she is no Virgin. Dana knows that doesn't mean the world has to end. Marty doesn't know how the world will go on.
There are major major spoilers in this one so I'm going to put it behind a cut but I hope you click it. They have to choose. )


So, that's my Yuletide. I think it might be more telling than a What I've Done Recently post could be but I am going to do one of those too.
