mymetalphantom: (Sherlock...Mycroft Holmes...he)
No, I haven't died/been abducted by aliens/put into witness protection etc.. I apologise for the absence which can only be described as a complete lack of attention. Life is okay (between boredom and worrying about the economy) and I've been meaning to come on here more often, but something petty always gets in the way. Boo, I wish there were more hours in the day.

I have been flirting with other Star Trek series *gasp*. I think one day I shall totally have to do a squee post about it, but for the moment I shall just say "squee" and leave it at that.

I have been writing. Occasionally. Posted below are some snippets of some Sherlock fics that I've been idly toying with over the past few months and a completed little House of Cards ficlet that I wrote on a whim while sitting on the bus. I know only posting snippets makes me an awful tease, but I figured that it's better than nothing. I do occasionally finish stuff XD

I still have to complete my M*A*S*H fic. I'm getting so close with it now, that I'm getting impatient with myself. Anywho, I'll quit jabbering now.

So, how has everyone been? :D

mymetalphantom: (STTOS...Spock/McCoy...swooning is)
It's funny how I get prompts and my imagination steers me in a completely different direction.

Anyway, I wrote a thing. It's silly but I kinda love the silliness.

Title: Fal-Tor-Pan or: How to Accidentally Get Married on Vulcan
Fandom: Star Trek: TOS
Rating: PG-13, probably.
Pairing: Spock/McCoy
Summary: Spock and McCoy discover a strange side-effect to the fal-tor-pan. McCoy also discovers a secret that Spock has been keeping for a long time.
Author’s Note: I've been threatening to write this for about nine years :P

Over at my newly revamped fic journal!
mymetalphantom: (STTOS...Kirk/McCoy...friends with)
I know that nobody asked for this, but this story came to me in the wee small hours of the morning and wouldn't let me sleep till I'd written it down. I have, of course, edited it since then, because...well no one wants to read fic that was written at four in the morning, cos that's horrible.

Anywho, I think I'm getting better at writing fluffier stuff...even though the fluffy stuff comes after moments of angst.

Title: The Choices we Make
Fandom: Star Trek: The Original Series
Pairing: Kirk/McCoy Friendship
Rating: Something for all the family...maybe.
Summary: Kirk has a much needed talk with McCoy in the aftermath of their encounter with the Vians.
Author's Note: Set after The Empath. An episode that I kinda love just a little bit, because it makes me wibble slightly.

He needs something to banish the thoughts of death. )
mymetalphantom: (MASH...Hawkeye/Mulcahy...I know I'm)
In reply to my request for prompts [livejournal.com profile] nemo_everbeing asked for M*A*S*H fic. Specifically for Hawkeye/Mulcahy. Nemo is clearly made of win!

If I haven't written for a fandom I like to start off small, practice a bit. I have something larger planned, but this is just a little, itty bitty ficlet. An appetiser, if I'm allowed to be pretentious for a moment.

Title: And I Can Hear God Laugh
Fandom: M*A*S*H
Pairing: Hawkeye/Mulcahy
Rating: I dunno...nothing graphic here.
Summary: Hawkeye gets the feeling that somebody up there is having a bit of fun at his expense.
Author's Note: Yeah, one of these guys is a Roman Catholic Priest. If you're going to be offended by it, please don't read it. Thank you.

I’ve often had the feeling that my life is just a tragi-comedy... )
mymetalphantom: (STTOS...Spock/McCoy...swooning is)
Okay, so I did finally get up the nerve to post it.

Due to frustration and election blues it really isn't the fluffy fic I wanted it to be. Maybe next time.

I've found that I love writing for Star Trek though!

Over at my oft neglected fanfiction journal.
mymetalphantom: (STTOS...Spock/McCoy...swooning is)
There was discussion of fluffy illness fic, remember? My first draft is done but it isn't what I wanted. I'm now beginning to angst over it, which makes the writing much less fluffy, which in turn causes more angst. I'm trapped in a big ol' vicious circle. I really need to learn not to be an uptight pain in the arse when it comes to writing, because in all other aspects of life I'm actually rather mellow and relaxed. XD

Do you also remember me talking about drabbles? I wrote some. They're Star Trek drabbles. I'm not sold on them as drabbles but I like the premise of some of them, so I might develop them later on when I have time. There were more, but these were the only ones I didn't completely hate. (I'm posting them basically because I have nothing left to do for the rest of the day XD)

S/Mc is SO MUCH FUN to write )
mymetalphantom: (Holmes/Lestrade...my attempt at  not)
Yeah, so as you all know, I have been disgustingly busy with RL stuff recently. This annoys me no end as it hasn't really been anything fun and has left me no time to write fic. This has left me with a wealth of WIPs sitting there on my hard drive, looking rather sad and neglected (poor little darlings) waiting for me to return.

Anywho, I thought as I don't really know when I'm going to be able to finish these that I would post some little snippets, you know, just to show that I'm not a lost cause ;)

They are all Holmes related. I have a HoC fic that is significantly closer to being finished than any of these, but to post any snippets would sort of spoil it for you...so I won't.

Only roughly edited so there will be mistakes. )
mymetalphantom: (HoC Urquhart/Stamper...like Richard III)
*reappears*

Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] elaby!

Just swingin' by to wish you many happy returns and all that, and to drop of a little gift for you! 'Tis a humble little HoC fic offering. Some rare introspective moments from our favourite political thug.

It's November 1982 and Tim finds himself spending the weekend at Urquhart's country home )

*vanishes again*
mymetalphantom: (HoC Urquhart/Stamper...like Richard III)
The last part of my prequel fic. On the 25th anniversary as well, although it's a complete coincident that I've completed it by this date.

Dramatic events save Urquhart from doing something he would ultimately regret.

Friday 12th October 1984 )
mymetalphantom: (HoC Urquhart/Stamper...like Richard III)
Yes, the second part of my HoC fic, where I take British history and violate it for my own nefarious purposes.

On the night of a Tory landslide victory Urquhart and Stamper have a private conversation. The answer to the "does Urquhart know" question.

I apologise in advance for this ;)

Friday May 4th 1979 )
mymetalphantom: (HoC Urquhart/Stamper...like Richard III)
The first part of the HoC fic that I mentioned a few days ago. Due to the smaller audience for this fandom I'm going to keep posting them here rather than at the fic journal. *shrugs* Yeah, I'm flighty.

Anywho, this is a series of prequels. A colleague of Urquhart's introduces him to a young, fresh faced backbencher. And so it begins.

Monday 9th September 1963 )
mymetalphantom: (Experimentation)
I would be pleased except it isn't exciting real life stuff. It's just your average run-of-the-mill stuff that is getting in between me and my computer.

As a result of this I have been a bit rubbish at the whole LJ thing recently and my posting and commenting has been intermittent at best and completely absent at worst.

Still, I've had some time to myself in the past few days and I have managed to start on my new Holmes story, which, hopefully, will be a plotty little number dealing with emotions and legal grey areas. Oh and a healthy dose sexual tension of course ;)

My key concerns with this fic are trying to get the plot in order and trying to balance out the inevitable angst with some light humour. I just love writing.

Anywho, my dear, brilliant, ridiculously lovely f'listees, I will leave you with some goodies. First a Holmes fic (which is more of an overgrown drabble actually) and second a House of Cards (TPtK actually) mini-fic.

HoC fic - R for bad language )

More HoC

Since I posted part one yesterday I thought I should post the next bit as well, seeing as it rounds the thing off. Also you get a bonus little ficlet that I don't even recall writing, this time from Urquhart's POV and *gasp* written in first person! I thought at first that maybe it isn't mine but all the familiar hallmarks are there and it fits into the set.

I'm very amused by my rather obvious love affair with Richard III!

Cut to save the f'list )

Bonus fic )
mymetalphantom: (HoC Urquhart/Stamper...like Richard III)
Last week was a big week of craziness! I can go for months without seeing some people and then suddenly they want to see me all the time. Oy.

I really wanted to write some fanfic last week but didn't have the time. Hopefully I might get something done this week. Unless more old school friends feel the desperate need for my company :)

Anywho, a few weeks ago I told [livejournal.com profile] elaby about the House of Cards fic thing I wrote for a creative writing exercise years and years ago, detailing Stamper's view on events. Well, I then promptly forgot all about it until I a TV advert reminded me and I went and dug it out of my archive (it was on CD! How old must that be?). I was interested reading it, seeing how far I've actually come with my writing. I mean it's not bad like "My Immortal" or anything but I must only have been about sixteen or seventeen when I wrote it (maybe even younger).

Also, I thought it was first person but found out that I'd actually written it in restricted third person. I almost never write anything in first person.

I'm rather pleased with my take on the canon though.

Anyway, get on with Emma!

For those not interested in this, I just saw an icon that made me laugh. It said "curiosity may or may not have killed Schrodinger's cat". I liked that.
