It has been, all told, a pretty good day today. Here is why:

1. Andrew had a great day at preschool; I didn't get to leave, but he was fantastic, and ignored me for most of the day, save for when the kids were moving locations, at which point he'd come and get me, take my hand, walk me to wherever we were going, deposit me in a corner, and then run off to play.

This is such an improvement over the first day, when he had to have me near him EVERY. SINGLE. MINUTE, that I'm feeling incredibly hopeful, and Teacher Jane said she wants me to leave when the kids all go in after the first outdoor play (which starts out the day). HURRAH.

(Is it wrong that my kid is ignoring me and I'm happy about it? Because in another twelve years, I'm pretty sure that Andrew ignoring me will not be met with such enthusiasm.)

2. I was brave this morning and posted the porn I've had sitting on my harddrive for the last few weeks. I was going to wait a week, but then realized that (a) I was feeling particularly brave and (b) my dad is without internet for the next week. As some of you noticed, I really, really, really do not want him to read this particular fic, which is why it's housed solely on AO3 and not on LJ. I have this wacked-out theory that Dad will not click the link to take him off LJ, like he's on a super-heavy locked school system or something. I'm probably wrong, but I'd like to think he won't read it, and if he does read it, he will NEVER. EVER. MENTION IT. Because it's one thing to have your father read your fanfic, even when he doesn't watch the shows in question. (Well, he's seen the first season of Sherlock, but only because he doesn't have access to the second.) It's another thing entirely when your father reads the gay porn fanfiction you wrote.

3. People seem to like the gay porn fanfiction I wrote, which is pleasantly surprising. (To [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68 and [livejournal.com profile] ramblinsuze, OMG, you two rock, thank you for reposting on Tumblr!) At least, I haven't heard anyone say, "Ugh, this gay porn is totally unrealistic, and ouch, wouldn't that chafe?"

(Hmm. It probably would chafe, actually, since one of those scenes takes place at the end of the day and neither of them have shaved in over 12 hours....)

In a related note, both "Heart" and the gay porn fanfic (which seriously, I should just rename "Gay Porn Fanfic") were rec'ed on in the Sunday Recs on [livejournal.com profile] sherlockbbc. I am unused to all this love, people; thank God I'm not a BNF, I might overload and go completely wacky.

4. I was a first fic for someone on Tumblr. Well, she contacted me via Tumblr, to tell me that she's in the Sherlock fandom now but she started off in the Doctor Who fandom and one of the first fics she read was Crossroads. What's that emoticon where it's two googly eyes and hands on either side of your open mouth? Yeah, that's me right now. I might be putting way too much stock in what your first fic in a particular fandom was, but the POINT IS, she read Crossroads first, and I DID NOT SCARE HER AWAY. And she remembered me. I consider that success. Plus, cool. (Please don't enlighten me otherwise, me and my dream world are very happy together.)

5. Mystrade UST, in regards to what I was working on while Andrew was ignoring me at preschool. Why, yes, I was sitting on a multi-colored carpet surrounded by two-year-olds and writing about how Mycroft and Lestrade were making googly-eyes at each other. These are the things you do, yo.

So, I've got this story on my hard drive. It's actually been done for quite some time, but I haven't started posted it yet, because...well, it's done, but it leads directly into a sequel, and it's the sequel that's been giving me trouble the last few weeks. Months. Nearly a year now, actually.

(The tricky bit is that the second part is absolutely the next part of Crossroads. Actually, it's the story [livejournal.com profile] wiggiemomsi requested as a Support Stacie fic last April or thereabouts. The part that's done - not so much. Actually, it has very little to do with Crossroads whatsoever, but you need to read it in order to understand the part I'm writing now. I realize that makes NO SENSE WHATSOEVER, but there you go. I am dealing with seriously timey-whimey forces here.)

So, a poll.


[Poll #1579683]

On a completely unrelated note, Andrew LIFTED ONE HAND yesterday while on his hands and knees. He didn't move forward, he didn't move back, and he didn't fall over. (He did fall over this morning while attempting a lunge, but he's okay now.) I figure this is a sign that he's at least thinking about the possibility of perhaps moving in a forward direction, and I've been baiting him with toys just out of reach. I am an Evil Temptress Mommy, it would seem.


Edited to add: Bill voted. Surprisingly, he did not vote that he will sit and mock me, which is what he's going to do anyway, so I'm not entirely sure why he bothered to vote for any other option.

Hey, guys -

How do you report plagarized fanfic on ff.net? I've just been notified by an astute reader (THANK YOU!) that this fic is an exact copy of my Choices and Chances. I've looked, and it is, and I know this was a topic of discussion recently, but I don't remember how it was resolved.

Thanks!



Edited to add:
Hmm. Does this mean that I'm so good, that someone actually wants to steal what I wrote? Or so bad, that the thief thinks no one will recognize the story from when I first posted? A conundrum.


Edited to add update:
Okay, I've reported the plagiarist to [livejournal.com profile] stop_plagiarism, as well as to the support email at ff.net, and reported possible abuse on the first chapter. Now, I'm taking Andrew to the pool before the thunderstorm moves in.

Also, the following:

Me: Guess what! I have a plagiarist!
Bill: Huh?
Me: Someone took one of my DW stories and is reposting it as if she wrote it herself!
Bill: She's stealing your fanfic?
Me: Yup.
Bill: Jeez. Of all the things you could steal, why would anyone steal fanfic? That's just sad.
Me: Yeah, 'cause Shakespeare would totally earn loads on the open market.

Title: Sled
Author: [livejournal.com profile] azriona
Characters: The Doctor, Dex, Janie
Rating: PG

Summary: Wait - we're going to do what?!?

A/N: Day Eight of the Advent Calendar Drabbles. Today's drabble prompt is brought to you by [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68, who actually left me several. This drabble happens to be set in the Crossroads 'verse, post-ABGP. I am boring, and titling my drabbles with the prompt (more or less).

Sled )
azriona: (Cleo - Invasion)
So I'm recording the next chapter of Crossroads ([livejournal.com profile] wiggiemomsi asked, and her wish is my command, most of the time).

Cleo walked into the room, took one look at me, and MEOWED.

I just went back and listened - and yup, you can hear the meowing. You can also hear me desperately reading the next line, trying not to laugh.


[Poll #1425555]
azriona: (DW - Shakespeare)
In my continuing efforts to avoid writing....

I read.

Sort of.

Apparently, my computer has a recording function. And I have a headset.


Anyone want to hear me read "When Dex Was Three"? No idea if my voice is annoying or not (I'm biased). And I can't do a British or Welsh accent to save my life, so I didn't even try because I'd probably make people cry.

But it was surprisingly fun to do.

Please comment if you take it, folks. And let me know if you liked me reading it!

Title: It’s All In the Timing
Characters: Ten, Rose, kids
Warnings: R, for smut
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] runriggers

Summary..... One TARDIS, two adults, three children, four attempts to have five minutes to themselves. It doesn’t go quite as planned.

A/N: A one-shot in the Crossroads series, although it’s not necessary to read that to enjoy this, as long as you know that Rose and the Doctor are together again and have kids. This takes place approximately 3 months after A Blue Gravel Path, and was written for [livejournal.com profile] wiggiemomsi as her Support Stacie request.


It’s All In the Timing )

Neat!

azriona: (DW - What?)
So I've got raspberry fudge cooling on the stove, and I've checked the Support Stacie auction to see if anyone's going to write about leopards, and I look at my flist, and wouldn't you know, [livejournal.com profile] jlrpuck was nominated for a Children in Time Award, she says, and I think, "Oh, good for her."

And I wonder, who else was nominated?

So I go looking, and sure enough, there's Rallalon's Non-linear Love Story, which is awesome, and [livejournal.com profile] gowdie's Six Stages, and pretty much every word [livejournal.com profile] amberfocus ever wrote, and EGT's Chaos Theory...

And then...

There's me.

My reaction: "WHAT????"

Yeah, I kind of forgot to check my email when I got home. DUDE, THERE WAS FUDGE TO BE MADE, I WAS DISTRACTED.

So, apparently the Crossroads Series was nominated in the Ten/Rose category. (And the Drama category.) I have no idea who did that. You totally rock, whoever you are. No way will I win - competition's far too stiff - but it's nice to be up there, all the same.

Title: It’s All In the Eye
Characters: Dex & Nina Tyler (The Doctor & Rose’s kids), Janie, The Doctor
Warnings: PG. Oh, and it’s kid!fic.

Summary..... Dex and Nina are at war. Janie watches.

Set in the Crossroads universe, about four years after A Blue Gravel Path. But can be read independently.

A/N: This was written for [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68, because she stumped me in the Stump the Author challenge. She asked for Dex & Nina, a little bit older. Here, Dex is eight, Nina is five, and Janie is four.

A/N: If you have not yet read the one-shot When Dex Was Three, do pop over and give it a spin. It takes place when Nina was born, and should explain why Dex is so convinced that the Doctor is returning.

A/N: Set in the Crossroads universe, between Choices & Chances and A Blue Gravel Path. But can be read independently of either. This was written for [livejournal.com profile] ladychi, who asked for a Dex story. I hope she likes it.

Chapter Eleven: Using Only Eleven Words..... He once asked for eleven words. That’s all, just eleven. She’s had seven years to think of them.

A/N: Just as an FYI, there will be a one-shot later this week centering on Dex - [livejournal.com profile] ladychi requested one a few weeks ago, and I finished it this weekend. And then realized how much it explains Dex in this chapter. It’s tentatively called “When Dex Was Three”, and it should be up on Thursday, barring disaster.
