Freely Given

Title: Freely Given
Fandom: Versailles
Rating: Explicit
Genre: PWP, missing scene
Word Count: 1017 (Oneshot)
Characters/pairing: Fabien Marchal/Sophie de Clermont.
Warnings: BDSM, spanking
Summary:I liked everything you did to me. Everything. Even when you hurt me.
AN: This fic takes place immediately after A Bewildered Heart. It is, in fact, a direct continuation of the last scene in it. At the time I wasn’t in the mood to write smut, so I decided to finish the fic, and make this into a missing scene-fic instead. It seems what I needed to prompt me to get into the smut, was to pause from writing angst…

If you haven’t read the previous fic, this works very well to read as a PWP. The first bit is lifted directly from the end of A Bewildered Heart.

Answers to the fandom meme

[personal profile] sallymn asked: Is there a character in any of your fandoms do you think was criminally underused?

I’m not sure I would use the word criminally, but I certainly feel character’s are underused at times. The one that springs to mind right now is Dracula in The Historian. Given how important he is to the main characters in the book, and how much he dominates the events, his actual screen time is extremely limited. The most we see of him is in a document which recounts a meeting with him, and then he has one brief scene at the end, which ends very abruptly. I’m sure the author had a vision to why we see so little of him, but for me it doesn’t work. It makes him very distant, and less scary.

[profile] earthspirit asked; Favorite character from Penny Dreadful?

I’m not at all original, as it’s Vanessa Ives. Eva Green is amazing, though in truth I think the casting is pretty amazing over all. But Vanessa is such an interesting character. The anti-hero is rarer than the hero, but an anti-heroine is even rarer.

[personal profile] gryffindoridiot asked: What is your favorite book to film adaptation?

Persuasion with Ciaran Hinds and Amanda Root. It’s my favourite Jane Austen, and the version is better than any other adaptations of it, IMO. There are a few scenes in the book that doesn’t make it to the screen, but apart from that, i think it's perfect. I love the casting, the settings and the clothes. The photo is beautiful! For some reason I find watching it incredibly restful, so this is a movie I often rewatch when I am feeling stressed out and frazzled.


If anyone wants to ask about another question here is the original post.

Just me being fannish over writing and Doctor Who

I’m in a good place writing wise right now. Which, in part, has to do with feeling a little fragile. I’ve always found writing good for the soul. And I’m stretching myself a bit, which is nice. I wrote that little ghost story which is the first piece of original fiction I’ve written in years. And I started a new versailles-fic. I never intended to write a series, but somehow it became one. And it’s interesting to write a love-story, because it’s something I only did for the first time last year. And it’s also interesting to try to make a relationship which is extremely unequal to begin with into something which isn’t, without losing the characters. It’s also great fun in writing a female protagonist with her own sexual agenda, because that is something I find rather lacking in fanfic. Especially in a BDSM context. And from a purely selfish standpoint it’s really nice to write something people actually comments on. Which, when I think about it, probably has more to do of me for once writing in both a semi-popular fandom, and a popular pairing. Or rather, a pairing a lot of people say they love, but basically only I write. So the fics would probably get attention no matter what.

I plan to sign up to The Darkest Night, but it’s a while yet- nominations are open to July 23. Remix Me seems to have withered and died, but there is a new Remix challenge rising; Remix Revival. I’ve already signed up, and there is plenty of time to mull it over if you are uncertain, as sign-ups close on July 30.

Cut for Doctor Who blather, with spoilers on the new one. )

Illustrations by Hans Arnold

[personal profile] liadtbunny is reading The Hobbit and suddenly I remember a poster I had as a child. As you can see you get bits from the whole book, with the added bonus of a Black Rider, and, I assume, Goldberry.



I love hans Arnold’s illustration which range from sweet to creepy to scary, but always interesting to look at. I think I have shared some of his works earlier, but he is worth another post.

Some naked breasts under the cut.

Answers to the Fanfic Comment Meme

This was fun! If anyone wants to ask about another fic, here is the original post.

[personal profile] lost_spook asked about But A Dream; a Victoria-fic which I wrote after watching the show. I thought it was pretty adorable, and having been a fan of Rufus Sewell for twenty years, or so, made it very easy to crush a little on Lord Melbourne. I’ve forgotten where I got the title from. (I haven’t copied the whole fic below, only bits I had something to say about.)

Fandom question meme

I know, I have heaps of stuff to answer, and a f-list to read. But I can never resist a fandom meme. Gakked from here and there.

Ask me a question. It can be fandom-specific or general. Be as creative as you like.

Fic Commentary Meme

I’m still in a funk and mostly spend my time writing fic and sew. I’ve just finished a 1916 skirt, so yay me! But i can never resist a fanfic meme, so this is nicked from all over my f-list:

Pick any story I've written, or, in the case of my longer, chaptered works, any chapter from any story I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you the equivalent of a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you’d expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

My fics can be found here.

Writing and fanfic gifts

I defaulted on the Night On Fic Mountain challenge. Not because the fic wasn’t coming along but because I completely messed up the dates and thought June 21 was the last day to put up the fic, instead of being the day it was revealed. I realised this only a day before the default-cut off, thankfully. I still have a half-finished fic, so I shall try to pull myself together and finish and gift it later. And I don’t think I shall sign up on Rarepair either because I know I always write less during summer.

But I was gifted by delightful little story, and I highly recommend you to read it!

Life

What I’ve done today:

Looked at the pieces of a cross-stitch bag I made 20 years ago, but couldn’t figure out how to sew together. In my effort to finish my sewing UFO’s I have decided to do them by age. After this hiatus I at once spotted a mistake I had done in sewing the shoulder strap together, and when this was unpicked, it is suddenly clear how it should all go together. Duh!

Watered the plants on the balcony and puzzled over a mystery plant in a pot there should only be a rose. I’m very pleased with having a nice balcony, after only seven years. Nils is less pleased.- he is used as having the balcony without humans.

Helped a friend compile a source list over historical corsetry and makeup facts to bust someone who had posted a long faulty article on a FB-group and then claimed it must be true because they found the information on the Net. Le sigh.

Also, worked.
