I'm pretty overwhelmed by the response "Breathless Mouths May Summon" has gotten; only a few people know this, but as of last week I was all a-wibble with anxiety about it not being good enough. (I only do this with things that really, really matter to me)...especially with a collaborator involved; being worthy of her work is a new level of responsibility. We seem to have made a lot of people happy.
If you're wondering why it was posted only to lower_tadfield
and not here, it's because the person who physically does the posting (me, in this case) gets all the email notifications, and q_w shouldn't have to keep checking both here AND there to see what folks were saying. Best to keep it all centralized.
Now, just because that story took up my whole psyche, it doesn't mean that's all I've been doing.
Remember that crackfic meme that was going around a couple weeks ago, where you take characters whose pictures appear in your icons and alphabetize them to generate pairings? I didn't do it for my own icons, but I did leave a couple drive-by crackfics in other people's comments.
I actually sort of used TWO of her pairings. The first is a het pairing, of a Real Person and a Toon. The second is....well, I'm just glad I don't actually believe
PG, I think. Be warned - I did not spend more than half an hour on either of these.( She was a tall dame. I am not a tall man. )
The second was for xylodemon
, who wound up with Crowley/Dementor. Well, this is more a story about Crowley and
a Dementor. Just a little
bit of virgule, ew. This one I think owes a spiritual debt to hjbender
's hilarious "Revenge of the Houseplants" and I know it owes a very concrete material one to mamushi
's genius illustrated treatise on Dementor reproduction
, from which I used a premise. Also PG-ish.( He couldn't even say why. He just didn't like it. )
We all are
She's still waiting for that Eminem/Gandalf, by the way.
