Dr. Horrible: So that's coming along
Since I've been AWOL for awhile, I thought this might be appropriate:

What have you been up to? Major life changes? Same old same old?
Seriously major life changes. In fact, so much change it hasn't even happened yet. As in, I am in decision-making limbo, and will almost certainly be in a new city and a new job in the next 60 days. Eep!

What fandom are you in/do you spend most of your time in?
It's been all Marvel Cinematic Universe all the time, recently. Sorry? Specifically, I've been hanging out with the Hydra Trash Party, which began as your average kink meme, but now includes an AO3 tag, a Tumblr tag, a chat room, and a book coming out in a few months (to which I contributed!). Anyone familiar with my work will not be surprised to hear that the Hydra Trash Meme deals almost exclusively with dark, terrible things happening.

Where do you hang out online?
See above for discussion of the Hydra Trash Party. But I just joined Tumblr (find me here!, so I've been trying to wrap my head around that. It's not as text-based as LJ, so it's difficult to have conversations with people, but also it's a great place for sharing visual-based material. If you Tumbl, please let me know so I can follow you!

What are you reading?
A lot of Steve/Bucky fanfic. Also Fun Home by Allison Bechdel, about her childhood growing up with a closeted gay father, her coming out as a lesbian in college, and her father's suicide.

What are you watching?
I finally finished Daredevil! I am slowly making my way through Sens8, and also once in a while, The Americans.

What are you making?
I realized I've stopped posting things here every time, because AO3 just seems to much easier. Sorry! I'll drop some links in a later post, but the thing I just finished and am very proud of is an unexpectedly long (30,000 word) fill for a kink meme prompt: The Only Animal, a bleak look at how Hydra broke Bucky Barnes.

What are you squeeing about today?
Outlander! Some of my Hydra Trash Party friends convinced me to watch the last two episodes of the first season, and wow. They did not disappoint. It pretty much pushes every last one of my buttons, so... Yeah. Highly recommended.

If you could rope old fandom friends into a new fandom, it would be...
MCU, specifically the corner that is still flailing over The Winter Soldier and cuddling Sam Wilson and finding new ways for Bucky Barnes to be traumatized and Steve Rogers to be stoic and the Hydra husbands the Strike Team to have fragile masculinity. Still so many ideas, and we get a new movie this spring!

I should really watch/read/dive into _______ and then come talk to you about it!
The Hydra Trash Party. I mean, if Captain American and/or non-con is at all your thing, it's a treasure trove. A manageable place to start might be this rec list. Alternately, if you're not ready for full trash mode, check out the Stucky D/s Art Exchange (NSFW!!!) and the Stucky D/s Fic Exchange (in which collection I have three works). I would love to squee with you about any of this.

What else is on your mind?
At any given day I'm at about a 46% freakout about my future, so that's a thing. But I am doing some meditation to deal with that (using the Headspace app), so it's a work in progress. I've also been doing a lot of thinking about fandom spaces and how we use them, consumption culture and how it affects fandom, and how tumblr works. Hmmmmmm.

SENSE8!!!!!!!!!!!!! oh. my. god. I love it more than anything.

I desperately more than anything want a crossover of Wolfgang and Bucky becoming best friends. WOLFGANG!! And also Lito, who is actually my favorite even though I'm so hysterical about Wolffang. And also Sun. And also everyone. But Lito! And Wolfgang! Let me cuddle you, Wolfgang. But the whole show is everything I love.

Lovely to hear from you! :)

OH MAN! Wolfgang and Bucky should totally be friends. They would be excellent bros. Lito is also amazing. What a glorious mess. He needs all kinds of cuddles. I kind of want to see Sun transacting some kind of business deal with Tony Stark. Over at Crossovering, there were a lot of Sens8 prompts, but only one Sens8 story (a crossover with Orphan Black).

Good to hear from you too, friend! Are you mostly on Dreamwidth these days?
15th-Sep-2015 09:47 pm (UTC)
I moved over there just a few days ago. There's so much weirdness and spam on LJ, and the posting is nicer on Dreamwidth. I doubt I'll ever do fandom on Tumblr, or I decided to give myself a fresh start on DW. I doubt I'll post anything but exchange letters, though.

I liked that Wolfgang story! I was sad there wasn't more Sense8. I was sad I couldn't do Crossovering in general, but there were four exchanges I wanted to do all at the same time (MM Rares, Rare Pair Exchange, and Narnia Exchange) and something had to give. Funny enough, I received two truly amazing crossovers in those exchanges anyway! (Bucky/Susan from Narnia and Narnia/PG Wodehouse) So it's all good. :)

I did not know there was a book for the Trash Party! Wow. Congrats on being in it. That's awesome. :)

Also freaking out about my life. Luckily I can write fic to pretend I'm not...
