8th-Nov-2015 06:26 pm - Blanket Permission For Fanworks
Avocado
(Copied from krytella for convenience/laziness)


Blanket permission is a way for fan artists to let other fans know their comfort with others playing with their works. It's particularly helpful to podficcers when authors give blanket permission for anyone to podfic their works without having to ask first. To find out more on blanket permission with regards to podfic check out [community profile] pod_aware on LJ or DW.

I give blanket permission for any kind of transformative fanwork: illustration, graphics, podfic, unauthorized sequels, etc. Just please let me know if you do something so I can appreciate it!
26th-Jun-2014 05:15 pm - Fic: Smart and Brave and Selfless
Avocado
Title: Smart and Brave and Selfless
Pairing: Steve/Tony
Genre: AU (Divergent fusion)
Rating: PG
Summary: The Faction Choosing Ceremony is tomorrow, and Tony knows where he tested for, but he only wants to be by Steve's side. The problem is, Steve isn't selfish enough to tell him where he placed. (Divergent AU)
Notes: SteveTonyFest fic on Tumblr. You don’t have to have read or watched Divergent to understand this. Just substitute ‘Hogwarts House’ for ‘Faction’ and you’ve got the idea.

Hey guys! Been a little busy with some original stuff, but you know how it is with fanfic. It always drags me back. (The seductive bitch that she is. :)  ) In honor of the new Winter Soldier trailer coming out, I'd post a little something-something I've been working on.

I heard from the grapevine (Twitter) that LJ is IP blocking journals with gay content. I looked for links, but couldn't find anything. Rumor? Or truth? Anyone got the word?
11th-Aug-2012 08:04 pm - Creep-tastic behavior
Avocado
I probably shouldn't be posting since I'm really emotional right now, but I have a problem and it's escalating and I need some advice.

So there's this creepy asshole who has been following me around on the internet for just over a year now, badgering me to finish a WIP. They've posted on my LJ, my A03, the Inception Kink meme and ff.net on a regular basis under the same name, Non_Nonny. I've started to erase them because you know what, I don't need that shit, but I do have emails of the incidents.

I've asked for them to stop and promised that the fic will be finished multiple times. They don't take that as an answer. One time, they started harassing me on the Inception kink_meme and the mods had to step in. I know they have me on email alerts because every time I post a fic on A03 or ff.net, they're there within a few minutes commenting rude-ass things and mentioning how I didn't finish the WiP. (It's Mr. Eames and the Third Eye)

I just got another message and I've had enough. Maybe it's because I lost my job and unemployment is jerking me around and filling out resumes really sucks -- normally I can just ignore this shit, but... Fuck. I don't deserve this shit. You know what the worst thing is? I've been working on that WiP on the side, or trying to, because I made a commitment to finish it, but every time I get the document open I just feel... sick inside. Because of this wack-job who has made this their personal agenda.

If I finish that WiP I'll be encouraging this behavior. If I set all of my profiles to block anon comments, they can just create a sock puppet and I'll be cutting off other people who may not have an account. (A03)

If I don't finish the WIP then that's unfair to me (because I do want to finish it) and all of the other cool people who liked to read it.

And you know what? It's just fucking fanfiction you stalking psychopath. How dare you make me make me feel sick and creeped out over it. How dare you.

8/13: Okay, so yesterday I reported what I could to LJ and ff.net (doubt it'll do any good, but hey, you never know) and I removed the story from ff.net and LJ. It can only be accessed from A03 now, and it's listed as complete as is with an explanation why. I feel terrible for those hoping for a happy ending for the fic, but... it's just a fic. My mental happiness is more important, honestly.

Thank you all who gave your thoughts and advice!

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,500
Warnings: Dubious consent, (Possible non-con/rape depending on how you look at it.) rough sex,
Summary: Like all alphas, Eames goes into rut twice a year. It's terrifying.

Fic Title: The Taming of the Point Man (or, More Than One Way to Court Arthur)  (A03 Link)
Author: avocado_love
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 8,500
Warnings: Implication of rough sex, violence prior to sex.
Summary: In a society where mating rights are determined by dominance fights, Eames can't seem to get one over on Arthur.
Notes: Written for the Reverse Bang for this lovely art prompt by heavenly_rain. Also inspired by this kink meme prompt. Thank you to my two lovely betas, mrsdstephens and illereyn, and of course to heavenly_rain who graciously let me go wild with the interpretation of her work.

Also, Eames is a bit of an ass at first, but bear with me. He gets better.

"I've a question about your point man's head of family," Eames said casually as he and Cobb were wrapping up for the day. "Would you happen to know if they're in need of anything?"Collapse )
30th-Jun-2012 07:48 pm - Genjutsu Wars
Avocado
Hey KakaIru fans! Don't forget that the Genjutsu wars is starting tomorrow. I'm on one of the teams (won't say which!) and I'm really excited/terrified for it to start. (OH GOD WHAT IF I BRING MY WHOLE TEAM DOWN. OHGODOHGODOHGODS)

In that spirit, here's one sample among many others you'll find there:





Hilariously, I didn't recognize that excerpt as my own and almost messaged the mods going, "This sounds like a cool story, but you mixed me up with someone else." Then I realized it was for Teach Your Children Well, and that I was an idiot.

Speaking of Teach Your Children... I've recently updated it here. I don't usually do this, but I'm like 19 reviews away from hitting 1,000. Awesome. So if you haven't read this fic in awhile, or maybe it's new to you and you like Time Travel stories, and if you happen to be in a reviewing mood, I really would appreciate it. Having two stories at over a thousand reviews would be a nice feather to put in my cap. ;D

Or not. But at least check out the Genjutsu wars at the kakairu_fest . Read! Comment! Vote!






3rd-Jun-2012 08:46 pm - I want...
Avocado
... an epic crossover of Dangerous Ladies featuring Katniss from Hunger Games, Cassia from Matched, and Tris from Divergent.

Of course, it would have to be Katniss from book 1 (too broken, otherwise), and Cassia from Crossed (face it, Matched!Cassia would just curl up into a ball and scream at the first hint of a challenge).

They could run around having adventures and maybe fixing various post-apocalyptic societies with badassness in their spare time. Katniss could hunt and do the dirty work, Tris would keep them on track physically and emotionally, and Cassia could be their moral compass (and, uh, poetry on the side I guess). It would be awesome.  

Someone write this. Stat.

2nd-Jun-2012 09:23 am - Fic: Quietus (Chapter 8)
Quietus Icon
Title: Quietus
Pairing: Eames/Arthur
Rating: R
Summary: (Modern day slave!AU) In life, Eames is a beaten down slave, but in the dreamworld he's smooth, dangerous, and sexy. And even though he's Dom's property, he's gotten under Arthur's skin. 
TRIGGER WARNINGS: Slavery, implication of previous non-consensual sex, classism, brutality, and possible dubious consent depending on how you see it, treating people as objects, implied mild to moderate torture, suicide (in a dream), moral ambiguity by the good guys, and forced silencing.

I don't want to give the impression this is some sort of ultra-dark fic, because it isn't, but the last thing I want to do is trigger anyone. So if you are at all sensitive to these issues I ask that you give this fic a pass. You are reading at your own risk.

20th-May-2012 08:56 am - General thoughts to ATLA fandom
Avocado
You guys, you know that I love you right? We've had some good times plotting and shipping together, but things are starting to get a little out of control and I feel like I have to say something.

Look, shipping is fun. Dog knows I have my favorite ships (Toko, Sokka/Zuko, Zutara... I basically just ship everyone with Zuko except for Mai). The thing is, though, they're all just for funsies and I feel like a few people around here have forgotten that their head-canon ship is just that. Head canon.

The creators of ALTA are NOT going to to cater to you and your preferred ship. No, not even if you whine and cry about it.

It feels weird for me to even have to point this out, because, duh, right? Yet here we are with people sending letters and screeching on their tumblrs/LJ's that Bryke that the nerve, the nerve not to validate that Toph and Sokka had a secret love child, and that love child is Lin.

You guys, that's what fan fiction and fan art is for. You can have that and everything else your imagination can come up with. But when you start mistaking your own personal theories for the shows canon.... that's when you have to step back. It's starting to cross the line between silly fun and a little delusional.

I love you, but knock it off. You're creeping me out.

~ A fellow fan.



(Comment if you want, but I'm going to freeze and delete any ship bashing that comes off in any way shape or form.)


Edit: Seriously, I am TRYING to enjoy an eclipse here without blowing up my phone with email. I've frozen certain threads to avoid an endless cycle of wank. This is why we can't have nice things.
