Despite my general ughhhhhhh feeling toward writing right now, I've joined the Lucifer bingo, and I can't help but be excited to write all about Lucifer and Chloe waking up married. So excited.

Fandom Snowflake Challenge – Day 7

Stretch yourself a little and try something new. Go play in a new fandom or with a new pairing. Try working in a new medium. Or check out some fanworks that are new to you. (The recs from Day 2 might be a good place to start.)

Today, being the cool kid I am and continuing to do Fandom Snowflake long after it has finished, I read a bunch of fic I've never read before.

Which, I suppose, is cheating because I do that most days. I try to read nearly every deckerstar fic that gets completed on ao3, which means I usually read a fic or two a day and save the long ones for later. It's a mixed bag, but I am weak and in desperate need of more fic. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Where Has My Brain Gone??

I feel like I used to have a lot more thoughts before I got involved with twitter and tumblr. Now my brain is empty half the time and I have nothing to say about anything. It's unsettling.

Fandom Snowflake Challenge – Day 6

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts

  • Fanart of my Lucifer fic
    I love love love it when people make fanart for my fic. Love it. It's basically the best thing ever, so I'm always wishing people would do it more because I am greed af and very self-centered. No one's made fanart for any of my Lucifer fics yet, so that's what I am wanting.

  • Podfic of my fic
    Once again, super self-centered! I would love for someone to make podfic of one of my fics, esp a longer one, because I A) love listening to fic on my 2 hour commute to work, and B) love reading my own fic because it was written just for me. So podfic of my own fic is like. Epic.

  • Actually, I want more podfic in general
    When did we stop making podfic? It was one of my favorite parts of fandom. I've got a podfic read by [ profile] jelazakazone on my computer of The Reasons for Us by [ profile] starandrea and I swear I have listened to it like a hundred times.

    So,you know, more podfic! Do it, fandom. Do iiiiiiiiiit. I double dog dare you.

Fandom Snowflake Challenge – Day 5

  • Jan. 13th, 2019 at 7:56 AM
the_wanlorn: The Doubtful Guest (Default)
In your own space, promote three communities, challenges, blogs, pages, Twitters, Tumblrs or platforms and explain why you love them.

  • [community profile] luciferbingo
    I love bingos, and Lucifer is my One True Fandom. So when [personal profile] titconao3 made a Lucifer bingo I was ecstatic. I love the shit out of single-word promps, and that's what most of these are. You can nope out of categories and prompts if you need/want to. I am pumped to try to get a blackout for the first time in my life (both the being pumped and the blackout).

  • [ profile] thedeckerstarnetwork
    This is the first Lucifer tumblr I followed and it is still my fave. They have Artist Wednesdays that highlight creators in the fandom (fic/art/etc). They'll reblog your stuff if you tag it with #thedeckerstarnetwork. They're part of the reason I've been able to stop myself from burning out on the TV show itself.

  • [community profile] fandomtrumpshate
    I think I'm the only person offering for Lucifer on this, so the only people who're gonna bid on me are if I can convince people who follow me on my Lucifer tumblr to do it, but I don't care. Donations to charities are great, they've chosen some great charities this year, and I'm excited to bid on people.

Fandom Snowflake Challenge – Day 4

  • Jan. 8th, 2019 at 1:48 PM
the_wanlorn: The Doubtful Guest (Default)
Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've interacted with and friend/follow them.

Got this one covered because I try to comment on every single finished Lucifer fic that I read. So I'm commenting to people I've never interacted with before almost every day. It started out as stressful, because I'm bad at comments, but I've kinda stopped caring how bad I am at comments and just, you know. Made myself be okay with the only thing I can come up with is "Loved it!" sometimes.

I feel better about myself now that I'm leaving comments, because I'm no longer a part of the problem. Before I was feeling incredibly guilty about that.

Fandom Snowflake Challenge – Day 3

  • Jan. 4th, 2019 at 1:11 PM
the_wanlorn: The Doubtful Guest (Default)
In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favorite interview, a book, a scene from a movie, etc) and explain why you love it so much.

Youtube video under the cut, contains nudity but no dangly bits )

Just. This scene. This scene. This scene is where I went from "ehh I guess I ship it" to "whelp guess I live in this trash bin now because I ship this more than I've shipped anything ever in my entire life."

Like, when she sees the scars on his back and her face just like freezes before it goes to high-key "I am horrified and concerned" and her face when he tells her it's his father's fault and when he's like wings and she's like no for real, her fucking voice is so fucking concerned like she's already planning how to A) punch whoever did this in the nuts, and B) make sure they are prosecuted to the full extend of the law and and and

Like, when she goes to touch his wings and he grabs her wrist and they look at each other and his face when he's like "Don't, please" and the way he he looks so confused before he says it and the way he sounds so fragile when he says it and and and

This is just. It's the first scene where Chloe sees him as a person, and it's the first scene where Lucifer has a feeling, and it's the first time they both feel vulnerable around each other and I just love it so much. It's fucking perfect.

Fandom Snowflake Challenge – Day 2

  • Jan. 4th, 2019 at 10:44 AM
the_wanlorn: The Doubtful Guest (Default)
Rec at least three fanworks that you didn't create.

I'm gonna rec fic here, since that's basically the only way I interact with fandom, and I'm gonna rec the ones that I read over and over and over again. Because that's how I roll. I read the same fic multiple times, sometimes in a row. Oh god why am I like this?

Recs )

Wow is it clear from looking at these recs that I have a type.

Fandom Snowflake Challenge: Day 1

  • Jan. 2nd, 2019 at 11:26 AM
the_wanlorn: The Doubtful Guest (Default)
In your own space, talk about your Happy Place—the things that give you joy, calms you or keeps you sane.

I wish I could like. Say "fandom" here and be telling the truth, but lol. l o l.

My happy place is 100% chilling in my chair, in my apartment, with my cat, and talking to my friends. That's it. That's all I need.

New Year, New Me!

  • Jan. 1st, 2019 at 8:26 PM
the_wanlorn: The Doubtful Guest (Default)
I have spent the day doing everything I want to do in the new year, for good luck or whatever, and it has been a great day. I've talked to all my friends, I've driven a lot (home from VA, where I was visiting friends), I've wrote some, I've read some, etc.

This is gonna be a great year, I can sense it.

Fic Advent Calendar

Guys I'm going to be writing these fucking fics until I die. I'll literally be on my deathbed, writing "and they lived... happily... ever... after..." and then I will die. Those will be my last words. I'm so tired.

Hello internet. I got to hold babies today. I remain great at babies. Just in case you were wondering. They were smol and cuddly and warm and smelled nice. A+ babies, would hold again. One was a month old and lmty I forgot how compact babies are at that age.

Anyway, they were adorable and I didn't steal any. That's all.


Hooray for me!

My only accomplishment today

the_wanlorn: The Doubtful Guest (Default)
Work is very frustrating, but I finished another advent fic (Dec 08 for those keeping track) and have an idea for the next one (day trip to tahoe!) so I guess today isn't a total loss.

How's everyone else?


Cool cool cool

I'm being sued for debt collection. I need to go dig through my debt collection paperwork mess to find out if this company ever contacted me beyond the initial "you owe us money pls confirm" letter. And probably get a lawyer.

Cool cool cool.


Why Am I Like This??

  • Dec. 17th, 2018 at 1:39 PM
the_wanlorn: The Doubtful Guest (Default)
Today I added all the Lucifer WIPs I am actively working on to a todoist list. Only the ones I'm actively working on. Only those.

And only down to chapter level. So even though one is planned down to the scene, it only counts for one item because it's a one shot. That's it. Only the ones I'm working on and only down to the chapter level.

Internet, there are 85 items on that list.


Even if each of them clocked in around 1k (they're not, not even the chapters) that's an entire book's worth of fic. That I'm hoping to get done by the end of 2019. Jesus Christ.

And that's not counting any fics I write after the s4 finale.

I am feeling so overwhelmed right now. This was a mistake.


Birthday Roundup

  • Dec. 16th, 2018 at 11:25 AM
the_wanlorn: The Doubtful Guest (Default)
My birthday was excellent! We went to an antique shop that was supposed to have a yarn store above it. One of mum's friends told her the yarn store existed, and mum was like "um p sure that closed bro" but we decided to go anyway.

Yarn store had, indeed, closed, so we went and explored the bottom floor of the antique store. It was fucking h u g e and I found a set of pfaltzgraff stoneware on the dollar shelf. I got 5 dinner plates and 5 bowls and 1 votive holder I'm gonna use as a tiny cup because it is super cute as a tiny cup but dumb as a votive holder. Shut up.

Point is, I got them all for 11 bucks, and now the number of bowls I have has gone from 0 to 5, and the number of dinner plates I have has gone from 0 to 5, and I am pleased.

Then we went to the good bakery and got some cake slices, penuche, and russian tea cookies. Delicious.

Family Drama Stuff )

ANYWAY. All in all, birthday was great, I have dishes now, and I just ate an entire bucket of penuche because I'm a glutton.

Now I'm off to read the comments on the fic I posted last night and reply to them. ♥

Birthday Baby

Today is my birthday!! I started the day by puking in the shower and clogging the drain, so today can only go up!

I also just read a bunch of super nice comments on the fic I posted last night, which is awesome. My favorite commenter left a super great one, so I'm happy.

You know what else would make me happy? If people signed up for Get Your Words Out so I had lots of new stuff to read in the new year:

Another day, another fic I did not post last night. I'm so behind on my fandom advent I'm gonna like. Still be writing these in February. I have no idea if I'm gonna actually continue past New Year's or just wait for next year. Who knows!

How is everyone else's writing going?

MICHAEL: One evening, a patient was brought into my clinic in the middle of the night. He was tortured so badly I couldn’t believe he was still breathing. A man was with him. It was the man on your radio. I’ll never forget the voice. He put a gun to my head and explained to me that my patient had robbed him and that he wanted me to save him so the pain would last longer. I did what I could. He said to come here for my money — my blood money. There’s a place between life and death. Amazing how long a man can linger there.
PRESCOTT: That’s enough, all right? Okay. Bring everything upstairs. We’re getting out of here. Tony? Tony, can you hear me?
THUG: What the hell is going on?
MICHAEL: I know this guy. He’ll have people outside the bank, in your truck,and on your boat. You have no idea who you’re dealing with.
