1. Talk about the first ship you ever had.
Way before fanfiction; Aragorn/Eowyn. My father read The Lord of the Rings for me when I was eight, and I was deeply disappointed when Arwen showed up, as I had hardly noticed her before. Fanfiction-wise it was Captain Hook/Wendy Darling.

I got a wonderful gift-fic on Remix Revival. It’s a remix on my story Arabella’s Visit, but darker, and with so much more depth. I don’t hesitate to say it’s a much better fic than mine ever was! Mine is told from Arabella’s POV, this one from Childermass, so I also think they work quite well together. Both fics are very much a case of magic made them do it, which makes them dub con.

Title: Mr Childermass Calls [a remix]
Fandom: Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 3044
Characters/pairing: John Childermass/Arabella Strange
Warnings: Dubious Consent, Grief/Mourning, Implied/Referenced Rape/Non-con
Summary: John Childermass, on business in Venice, calls on the Greysteel household, but only Arabella is at home.

And suddenly Yuletide is almost upon us. How did that happen? Last year I nominated H. P Lovecraft’s The Case of Charles Dexter Ward with the characters Joseph Curwen, Eliza Tillinghast and Ezra Weeden. Because I have a hankering for knowing more about Eliza and her marriage to Curwen, and I think I’m going to nominate that one again.

And I’ll definitely nominate Elizabeth of the Garrett Theatre by Gwendoline Courtney, with the characters Alison, Elizabeth, Nigel and Nan, again.

But then I don’t know. My third last year was Sir Walter Scott’s Ivanhoe with the characters Brian de Bois-Guilbert and Rebecca of York, but I don’t really feel the love for that this year. I’ve been thinking of Versailles and Elizabeth Kostova’s The Historian. The Mummy is also an option, though it is usually nominated anyway.

I need at least 100 words more on my Remix-fic, but I feel confident I will be able to add that tomorrow, when my brain has stopped being mush from writing on it today… And I have until september 10, so it shouldn’t be a problem to have it finished by then.

I’m back! I understand you must have missed me terribly. ;)

Vacation was good without being spectacular. Summer has been sunny, but not very warm, generally around 20-22C. Everyone complains about it, but not me, because i detest heat, so for me the weather has been perfect.

The first week was spent in the summer house, only reading and sewing. We have two houses and my parents live in the other one, but they are very easy to get along with, and I enjoy having a little extra time with them. Mum and I went swimming before breakfast every morning. We also had a garden party, which was great fun.

The last three weeks we have been more back and forth- a few days in the summer house, a few days at home. We also went to see husband’s brother and his wife, who live in a small town basically in the middle of Sweden. My BiL and husband are super different when it comes to interest and looks, but they have quite similar personalities. I like both him and my SiL a lot, and it was great to see them. We also had time to visit my sister on our way home. My nephew grows more charming the older he gets. He doesn’t talk at all yet, but is very active and curious.

We had an 18th century picnic with a couple of friends, in the gardens of Drottningholm Castle, which was fun. The gardens are pretty much still as they were planted in the 18th century. The dogs enjoyed it too, especially Tom who managed to steal a whole salami. Luckily we could stop him before he had eaten the whole thing.

I spent a whole day with C, planing our artistic dress movement wardrobe for next summer.

The Kid’s uncle with family is visiting from US. I’m very fond of my former BiL, and his daughter are pure delight. She is two years old now and is completely fluent in both Swedish and English. She loves dogs, and was very good at petting them. She got a bit over excited at first, but when I explained the dogs didn’t like it when she was shouting and jumping, she calmed down. And was overjoyed when Teddie immediately came and lay down beside her.

I’m still working on the embroidered 18th century gown. The finishing touches involves a lot of hand sewing, which takes time. I’ve also almost finished and 1915 corset. Though now everything is on pause except a 1670’s mantua which have to be finished by September 16, as we are going to a 17th century ball then.

And I have been writing a bit. I’m halfway finished with my fic for the Remix-challenge, and have a finished synopsis for the Darkest Night. I’ve also written a chapter, and then a half on my Versailles fic. It’s funny, isn’t it, how you can write a couple of mediocre chapters and get rave reviews, and then pulls out something which you really would like an opinion on, and total silence settles? I have a terrible feeling the last chapter was a disaster and that no one liked it.

I doubt I will be able to read up on everything which has happened in my absence, but I will at least take a stab at it.

If you think you have seen little of me this summer, soon you will see even less. My vacation has just started, and will continue for four glorious weeks. As we went to France in May, we haven’t planned to do more than spend time at the summer house and relax. I won’t be online much, if at all, until the end of August. I am going to spend a little time to comment on this nice meme, though:

Come on over and leave some nice feedback- and to get some. My thread is here.

I also have to finish my letter and sign-up to The Darkest Night before I leave for the archipelago. Hope you all will have a nice August!

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.

[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.

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.

[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.
