For the first time ever, I asked for another assignment and couldn't be happier with the new prompts. I'm actually incorporating elements from all of them as they all have a similar tone.

I have written the first couple of lines and have heaps of other snippets and bits of dialogue and images both in my head and as notes on my phone. I have a sort of rough idea of what I want to write, just waiting for the details to present themselves. I even know how I want it to end but have a feeling that the characters might not co-operate.

Yay!!! \0/ Is it too early to start thinking about prompts and pairings and likes and dislikes, oh my!!!!

In a fit of equal parts boredom and dying to be creative and a little splash of crazy, I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo February Amnesty round and here is my card!! I love it! All 3 prompts are just delicious and I can't wait to start writing. Now I just have to decide whether to write Sam/Dean or J2 and which juicy prompt I want to include as my Wild Card. So many to choose from, so many favourite kinks & fantasies.....

vyperdd: (AKFcandle)
Am trying to follow my own advice by reaching out when I need help so this is me reaching out!

Anyone interested in helping me brainstorm a fic I'm currently blocked on? It's J2 and I have a bit of the beginning and some of the ending but I'm at a loss as to how to get from the start to the finish and whether I can even expand the idea I have into a decent length fic. Minimum word count is 4k.

Can send snippets and more details if there are any takers.

I've signed up and can't wait to see all the gorgeous art!

Pimping this as I think it's an awesome idea.

Sometimes you're not in the mood for long foreplay, sometimes you just can't wait to get started. This is a place where we want to make the magic happen a little faster than in the big collaboration challenges, but still give artists plenty of time to create. We want a quick turn-around, but not without getting to know each other first;)

In a recent multi fandom project it became clear there are a lot of authors wishing for art to go with their stories and a lot of artists with a desire to create. Both were not sure how to approach each other. We hope to bring y'all together in this art-community.

For now we are keeping it within the Supernatural fandom, including the RPF corner:)
All ratings and pairings are welcome. (With the exception of real world children)

So, do you have a short story you want illustrated? [<5000 words] Join the Quicky Bang!

Art can be anything from a banner to a scene illustration and we welcome all media, from pencil sketches to digital designs. To avoid procrastination we have one rule: you have to set yourself a deadline no more than a month after you claimed a story or started a collaboration.
Art can then be posted to the community. We require at least a sneak peek or teaser to be visible in the post; this is an art-community after all:) Whether you link to your artpost in your own journal or directly to the author's story is up to you. We do encourage you to promote each other's work!

Eager to art? Check out submitted stories: Quicky Bang!

We also offer anonymous contact and private rooms:
FLIRT: Don't have a story, but you do have an idea for art? Leave a prompt here! (Anonymous input allowed)
CLASSIFIEDS: Looking for a fic- or artpartner to play with your favorite characters? Find each other here!

Questions, suggestions and comments are welcome:)

Two hours past the deadline with hopefully not any typos or bad grammar, it is done and gone to the mods for posting.

I did ask for an extension (both in a comment to the last deadline post and via email) but haven't heard anything back, so can only cross fingers it gets accepted.

It's not the story I wanted to post (that one just refused to come together in just a couple of hours) but it's a story using one of the pairings and a prompt and I really like it so I am really hoping my recipient likes it too.
vyperdd: (AKFcandle)
Went to bed still undecided about which pairing/prompt combo I was going to write for [livejournal.com profile] spnspringfling. Had narrowed it down to either of 2 pairings and either of 2 prompts.

And my crazy subconscious did not let me down. Woke up this morning with a line of dialogue running through my brain and thought Yes!!! That's it!! That's the story I want to write!! Now to decide which pairing to tell it with. Of the 2 most likely, I haven't posted any fic with them but I have written a couple of unfinished fics.

My first thought was going with the pairing I've written most of but I knew straight away it was going to be very dark, basically non-con torture porn. Now I love reading that stuff and love writing it even more, but I was really worried about my recipient finding it disgusting and perverted and such a total turn-off that they wouldn't read past all the warnings I would have to include. Makes it hard to know how far I can go when we don't get lists of likes and squicks with the pairings & prompts. Heck, we don't even know who we are writing for so can't check out their fic list to see what they are into.

So back to the drawing board. I was really hooked on the 1st line so didn't want to try to come up with something else. Was taking my dog for his morning walkies and I swear to god I hear 1 of the characters in the other pairing saying a very similar line in my mind and all of a sudden all these scenes and snippets and ideas are flooding into my brain and I'm grinning like a bloody idiot as I'm so excited about what this fic can turn into.

So I've basically got the whole fic sitting in my brain. Just hope I can get it on the screen without it changing too much as I really love it so far.

Just logged into my email and I see my assignment for [livejournal.com profile] spnspringfling has arrived!!!!! Yay!! \0/ \0/

Scurries off to open said email with baited breath.....

..... and I'm back and my insta-reaction was "Oh Boy!" :-) :-/ :-) This is certainly going to be a challenge!!! which I suppose is the whole idea!!!

A little disappointed that I didn't get my OTP :-(

Any pairing could fit with any prompt and a couple or three 'ideas' & 'maybe's' &'what if?' scenarios are already starting to swirl through my brain, though I definitely favour 2 of the pairings. The 3rd I have no idea even where to begin as it's not one I would ever even think about writing, even though I love both characters.

Think I'm going to have to sleep on this one and see what pops up in my crazy subconscious.

Hope everyone got their dream pairings and amazing prompts to work with. I can't wait to read all the fantastic fic and drool over the beautiful art that this challenge always produces.

One of my favourite challenges in fandom is back for another glorious year and signups are open for the next week. Click the banner below to join in on the fun.

Now to work out my pairings and prompts.....

30 mins later: Wow that was hard narrowing them down but am pretty happy with what I've chosen.

Checking out other pairings/prompts posted so far, there's a few already that I would love to be assigned.

Signed up to prompt and write for [livejournal.com profile] spn_weirdnews's rarepairs promptfest. Received the prompt I really wanted and there are a couple of others that I might claim if I get this first one finished with time to spare.

There are still lots of wonderful 'rarepairs' to write for and awesome prompts to claim (including 3 of mine, though I can't say which ones :-( ). So if anyone's interested head over to this post to read the prompts and make your claims.

My [livejournal.com profile] spnspringfling gift has FINALLY been posted and it's everything I had hoped and wished for only multiplied by infinity. It's as if my amazing & wonderful mystery author has been peeking into my very darkest fantasies and dreams and has written the most perfect fic I have ever read.

It's super, super dark with absolutely spot-on and in-character portrayals of both Sam and Dean. Everything I love about Sam is here; his strength, bravery and willingness to suffer and endure to help others and, most of all, his never-ending trust in his big brother, his unconditional & amazing love for Dean. My heart broke for him in nearly every paragraph.

And Dean. Oh, Dean!!! Despite what he's become and what he does, he's still recognizably Dean and I just want to wrap my arms around him and never let go.

It had me hooked and breathless from the very first sentence, squirming through most of the middle and in tears by the end. And yet I wanted more, I wanted it to never end. I want to live in the world my author has created for ever, despite (no, probably BECAUSE) of how everything hurts so, so much.

Ok, I'll shut up now except to say go and read this fic and lavish the author with all the praise you can.
vyperdd: (BB13 fuck)
Just got my email from the [livejournal.com profile] spnspringfling mods and I squeeled and I haven't even opened it yet. Please, please let it be all the pairings I love and let the prompts be ones that inspire lots and lots of great ideas.

OK, here we go.... wish me luck f*listies.... tabs to Live Mail and clicks on email....

OMFG.......... these are perfect!!!!!!! my top 2 OTP's are listed as pairings and all the prompts give me something to work with that I can see going in a variety of directions. 1 has immediately jumped up and is screaming "PICK ME!! PICK ME" Doesn't mean that's the one I'll do but it's encouraging to know I probably won't be stressing out trying to choose one.

Oh just had a flurry of thoughts about the pairing and when to set it and a very rough plot outline and I wanna start writing straight away and I can because I'm on holidays, so no work for the next week. With all the money I've just spent on AHBL tickets, I'm too broke to go anywhere so am literally housebound. The timing couldn't be better!!!
vyperdd: (Default)
Just signed up for the [livejournal.com profile] spnspringfling challenge and man, it was hard narrowing down my pairings and prompts. I want all my favourite pairings (Sam with anyone, basically) and have way too many ideas rattling around my brain, so picking just 3 each was really hard.

It was a little easier to define what I will and won't write, but even those I'm sure I'm leaving lots of things out. Oh well, it's done now, so be it.

Good luck to the poor person who gets assigned to me. I'm sorry that things are kinda specific and yet hopefully still vague enough to give a lot of room for you to let your imagination run wild. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Sign ups are here

[livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang claims opened tonight at 11pm my time. I slept past 11, ended up putting it my claim at 11.32pm and may still get my 2nd choice. Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've skimmed all the prior comments and only 2 other people had it in their lists and both of those received other prompts so it's still available.

Even if I had posted at 11pm as was my plan, my first choice was taken by someone who posted within about 30 seconds of claims opening, so I doubt I would have gotten it anyways.

Just waiting, waiting, waiting for the mods to confirm that R2027-- Chained is mine.

ETA: I got it!!!!!!!! Now I just have to write it!!!! Have some initial ideas to begin with and can't wait to get input and more inspiration from my artist.
vyperdd: (Sam & Dean t-shirts)
Wow, that was so, so hard. Just spent the last couple of hours looking at and drooling over all the amazing arts for this year's [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang. So many wonderful prompts by very talented artists made choosing my initial list very, very difficult. I eventually got it down to 12, mainly Sam/Dean and J2 + a couple of other pairings, 1 of which I haven't even written before but the art for it was so eye-catching and thought provoking that I could see it as a challenge to expand my boundaries as a writer.

And then came the really hard part, narrowing the dozen down to just five. Finally settled on 2 J2, 1 Sam/Dean, 1 Sam/? (being careful not to reveal the exact pairing) and that "other" pairing. Now I have to think about what order to put them in. Luckily, I'll be extremely happy to get ANY of my choices so the exact order doesn't really matter, I suppose.

I remember how crazy insane claims were last year. Had my choices in a little Word doc, all ready to paste into the comment window as soon as the claims post went live. Was pretty quick and posted in under a minute. However there were already 3 pages of comments before mine and my first choice was also the first or second choices of quite a few authors before me, so I knew straight away I wouldn't get it. Here's hoping for better luck and faster posting this year. And maybe, hopefully, I've chosen some of the more unusual prompts that may have slipped under other folk's radar.

So looking forward to claims, 11pm tomorrow night my time. Let the madness begin.

To all my fellow RBB authors, here's hoping you all get your top choices (unless, of course, they happen to be my top choices :-) Best of luck to you all.

And to the all the wonderfully gifted artists. Thanks very very much for providing so many amazing prompts. May you get the author of your dreams who will write you the most epic of fics.

Have just signed up at [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang & [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas.

That's in addition to already writing fics for:

[livejournal.com profile] samdean_otp minibang
[livejournal.com profile] spn_hardcore_bb
as well as the seemingly never-ending task of working on next year's [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang

Thankfully OTP and hardcore are almost done, so hope to finish those before I have to start on RBB and X-mas fics.

I think I may be addicted to signing up for fic challenges. But they all sound so yummy and I have very little self-control, it seems.
vyperdd: (Default)
Just started working again on my fic for the [livejournal.com profile] samdean_otp mini-bang and read through what I'd already written for the second chapter. It's a shower scene that has been giving me lots of trouble, sounding perfect in my head and crap as I type it up. A note at the top says it needs a major re-write and yet when I read it today, I actually liked it. I liked it a lot. Sure it still needs some minor tweaking to smooth things out, but it's a lot better than I had previously thought. Have even worked out how to include a bit of background info and a flashback or two.

I LOVE writing right now!!!!
