I've been thinking about it lately.

Recently I went through my old fic and f-locked a lot of it. Most of the stuff I f-locked was slash. Some of the slash is still open, never fear! It was just... the really weird ones, I guess. And the ones that I look back on and wince. I once swore I'd never lock away my fic, but hey, times change, so do people.

Those of you who've been with this journal a long time know, I used to love slash. It was maybe 80% of what I wrote, with femslash and het and gen filling in the last 20%. My newer friends know me as someone who might occasionally express an interest but would never write or roleplay it. Unless it was canon. I'm a canon relationships stickler.

TL;DR about stuff under the cut. )

I guess the part that bugs me most is the people who like slash exclusively. But I've felt the same about people who only like het in the past, so the moral of the story is variety is good? I think I've pretty much decided that I should go back to being the Shana that doesn't give a damn what other people think. I'll write what I want, and it'll be awesome.

Everyone go vote! I did it last week because I'm awesome. And absentee.
museofspeed: (Best friends)
Shana: Do you ever look at your friends and think, "in the fanfiction of my life, we're about to have a threesome?"
Sara: haaaa!!
Sara: know, sometimes.
Shana: It's even weirder to look at the people you dislike and think it.
Shana: This might be why I've stopped slashing as much as I used to.
Sara: what was it--oh, I think Zoe explained a fandom thing to her sister by saying "it'd be like you and Sara making out in front of me"
Shana: Aaaaaah, I love Zoe.
Sara: I have no idea what she was explaining, but it was hysterical
Sara: and yeah. I like slash, but I also really like friendship stuff and that happens far less
Shana: Yeah. And het.
Sara: yeees.
Sara: oh fandom
Shana: I want to just... write some epic friendship fics.
Shana: And I wish there was a term for gen shipping.
Sara: that would be awesome
Shana: Because I have so many awesome gen ships.
Sara: yeeeees, me too
Shana: Andrew/Anya, Spike/Dawn, Spike/Joyce, Kon/Tim, (though I like them shipped too, it's just overdone and that annoys me), Paco/Jaime, Cassie/Cissie, Dick/Tim.
Sara: yeeees. <3
Shana: ...I hereby declare that a double slash shall denote genshipping.
Sara: heee
Shana: I genship Andrew//Anya.
Sara: I like genshipping as a term.
Shana: This fic is Kon//Tim.
Sara: ::giggles::
Shana: I have the best ideas at 3 AM.
Sara: clearly!

I took a nap today after my first class and woke up as my second class was starting. Mmm fun. On the bright side, NYCC IS TOMORROW! Followed by my sister's Bat Mitzvah on Saturday, followed by MORE NYCC! Aaaaand I'm getting my Buffy comic tonight! I've already read it since I couldn't wait to actually own it, but, well, I loved it. I'll probably have more on it after I buy and reread. Still, so far I'm happy about it. I had my doubts, but I think Joss actually does know where he's going on this. And, again, I can't wait for the next issue.

But more important than that, who else is headed to NYCC? I'll probably wearing a Superboy shirt and a Spike jacket, or possibly a Nightwing shirt. If you see me, say hi! Or just... go up to every shortish girl with brown hair and ask if they're me. Here, I give you an internet code word. Tell me "Potato" and I will reply "Cheesecake" and thus will we know each other.

...please try this with every short brunette you see, I will laugh.
museofspeed: (Angel yelling at Spike)
I'm not sure I actually have any of those on my f-list, but this might be for the best anyhow. If you actually do write Spike/Angel, you might want to skip my rant.

And yes, I still refuse to say ''Spangel.'' Oh, I talk sex stuff under the cut, if this bothers you. Also I blather on in a slightly angry fashion. )
museofspeed: (boo yeah?)
...I just won a [ profile] comment_fic challenge. I NEVER do that. Thank you, everyone easily capable of getting more than twenty fics out in a weekend. I appreciate how you didn't play. Okay, I took the easy way out for the last two and wrote three sentence fics, but still. That's pretty cool.

You can find the first nine here and the second eleven here. I'll post them in an actually organized sort of way later.

Fandoms include: Buffy/Angel, DC comics, Doctor Who/Torchwood, and SPN. In that order by frequency. Wow, I wrote a lot of Buffy fic. It was cool.

I also started what promises to be a long and hilarious fic about Cordelia and Angel going to save Buffy from some demon during Season 6/Season 3 and wacky hijinks ensuing. But the comment is already at 700ish words and not slowing soon, so it gets to wait for a while.
museofspeed: (boo yeah?)
I've been failing hard at fanfic lately.

First I've been not writing any, but that's not new. I haven't been reading much, either. My brain's just not in the right place, and there are so many novels and such that I want. And then there's fandom itself. I find myself interested in fewer and fewer things. And even the things I am interested in, I just... don't get to. I've got about 19 [ profile] aravistarkheena fics that I've been eagerly awaiting and, in some cases, pestering for, but I've been an asshole and still haven't read them. Though I WILL get to them!

It's Buffy's fault. I'm obsessed with something that's not comics for once. Don't worry, I'll never abandon comics completely, but instead of more lack of fic, there might be Buffy fic coming up.

In fact, I'm doing lonely prompts right now. All Buffy, some SPN thrown in. I'm working on some DC too, so there'll be at least one of those when I'm done.

Um, people can link me to particularly great prompts I may not have seen if they want. Whatever. At least I'm writing again.

Oh! And I'm 20 in 15 days!
museofspeed: (sleepy Terry)

I've got last minute homework that ISN'T WORKING, Yuletide, Doom, Character Cards, Present buying, and normal RPing/twitter stuff. AGH MY BRAIN.

Some note-type stuff.

PLEASE POST YOUR DOOM FICS TO LIVEJOURNAL. I did not know this would be something I needed to say! But it makes things simpler and uniform and I'm in a stressed out mood DO NOT ARGUE THIS MAKES ME HAPPY. Post them other places too, but THIS ISN'T YULETIDE, STOP CONFUSING ME.

I've written 15 cards to fictional people today. First I wrote to all the people Dick would write to on the list, then I said hell with it, this is Dick, he'd get all Christmas spirity and write to EVERYONE. Some of the cards are pretty short, some of them have crappy drawings, but I'm going to spend a fortune on postage. Also, Bek, are we going to scan cards in or something? I want to see what everyone got!


Okay. I think I'm good.

Also, I hate Christmas music. And the world.

Cake is good, though.

Oh, if people want coupon thingies, I have some, I guess.
museofspeed: (Kon and Cassie)
Bleh finals. Studying. MATH.

If anyone writes me fluffy fic (preferably of the Kon/Cassie variety) I will love them forever.
museofspeed: (sleepy Terry)
After the blarghflrgh that was yesterday, today was pretty good, so far. I'm finally halfway done with my math, I'm on top of my RPs, and I've just edited the profiles of my comms to add this note:

NOTE: Communities such as [ profile] monitor_duty and [ profile] comicstore_news follow this community. If for whatever reason, you don't want them linking to your stuff, I recommend not posting here. You can try a note somewhere in your profile (subject bar is best if you want them to see it), but it might not work! It is your job to keep your stuff as private as you want, not the mods.

Remember, the Flying Spaghetti Monster will see whatever you post even through f-locks, so post with care!

And then I affiliated all my comms with [ profile] timxtam and [ profile] tim_cissie! They are awesome for all your rare pairing grins. Booster Gold endorses them! *tooth gleam*

(Also, Bek? Our Tim/Bernard profile is so pretty and I didn't want to mess it up so the note is underneath it. If you want to copy-paste it somewhere that looks nicer, please feel free. You are the pretty-making mod!)

And because I haven't posted it since July, Dick's butt. )

So! Who's doing [ profile] jbbs this year? I haven't decided if I'm going to yet.
museofspeed: (Best friends)
I love Adventure Comics. I look forward to it every month and read each page gleefully because it's so beautiful and YEEE! Cassie and Kon being sweet and Tim and Kon being best friends and EVERYTHING BEING WONDERFUL.

That being said...

Cover to Adventure Comics #6 under the cut. )

This is the user formerly known as shananagin. [ profile] unrequited_rain gave me a rename token and yay! I am now [ profile] museofspeed! Awesome.
museofspeed: (Iris West)
Okay... this has kind of been a long time coming, and I'm not sure it's here yet. I'm considering f-locking my journal.

You may have noticed I'm writing very little fanfic these days. Time was I was cranking out two or three fics a week. Now you're lucky for one a month, and that's not including drabbles because I don't count drabbles.

If you are lazy, you can skip this. )

It's really not difficult to connect me to my lj name. There aren't so many Shanas in the world, and for a long time shananagin was a username I used with things that were connected to me. I am proud of almost everything I've written here, but I don't really want, say, DC Comics editors stumbling across my Bart/Cthulhu story when they're thinking about whether or not to hire me. This leads me with two choices. Buy a rename token, or go through all my old stuff and lock the fanfic that I'd rather not be connected to me professionally. I don't want to do this. I hate going through other people's journals and finding there are fics I can't read, and this would be most of the porn, and a lot of the slash. Though not the Cable/Deadpool talky one. That's too brilliant to hide.

That being said, I will friend everyone and anyone who wants to read my stuff if I do this. I don't want to make my stuff unavailable, just harder to find.

This might happen this weekend. I don't know.

We'll see.

Thoughts? Advice? Oh, mighty f-list, tell me what you think.
museofspeed: (Batshower!)
Okay, I've had 472 individual commenters on this journal, so the HTML got too long and I cut out all the 2's and 1's. But for those interested, everyone more than that!

Who comments the most on this journal? )
museofspeed: (Batshower!)
Hey folks! Up ungodly early to catch a plane to Chicago for Comic Con! (And family, but hush.)

Anyone going? We can potentially say hi! Leave a comment and I'll get to it once I'm not a) asleep or b) on an airplane.
museofspeed: (Nightwing)
All I want is some new World's Finest Dick/Mon-El. Is that so much to ask?
