Leave me a prompt (for a fandom/show/book/whatever that I am actually familiar with) and I'll write a drabble! And if anyone wants to get in on the action too, well, the more the merrier! 

Any pairing or non-pairing is fine; just be sensible about what I could write. We all know I'm wonderful, but I'm not that wonderful.  ;)

These are some of the incomplete stories sitting on my computer at the moment. I know where most of them are going, but not all, and I just feel like sharing the openings to a few of them to catch what you think. They're for a number of different fandoms; it's almost embarrassing how many I'm involved in. One day, I shall restrain myself. Maybe.

The fics!

Read and by astounded by my nerdy geekishness!

- This is one of my current shiny new interests. I've already written two fics for it, and I'm working on a third that's threatening to turn into one of  my angst epics, with a grand side of DESTINY, because, dude, this is Merlin. And it wouldn't be the same without dire predictions and gratuitous slash subtext. 

Star Trek XI - I desperately want the goddamn sequel. Any minute now. Really, any. Damn. Minute. I've got a couple of fics on my hard-drive that I'm thinking about starting up again, including my ghost!fic and a rewrite of my Matrix fusion thing. Which, yeah, I totes shouldn't have started in the first place because I knew that that would go badly when I did it. I just...couldn't help myself. But, I do want to do it, I just have to write it all before I can because I can't even think about it without cringing. Also, it's not written in the style that I prefer to write in, and while it's good to experiment, I just can't keep it up. So, yeah. Eventually, I'll get around back to this. And some other stuff, like my partly finished His Dark Materials fusion and that angst fic. All of this is Kirk/McCoy.

Star Trek XI RPF - I actually have a WIP on the kink meme somewhere that really needs to be finished, but I got distracted by completing Lost Boy, and just couldn't do it. I have to put aside the domestic violence fic to finish the rape-aftermath fic. Because that's how I roll, and I have a limit to how much angst I can deal with. But, it is on my mind. Who knows, I may even finish it one day.

Supernatural - Oh, SPN. I would say that you corrupt me, but I was already a dirtyminded hobag before you came into my life. I have some WIPs for this fandom on my laptop, including another epic!angst!fic (with genderfuck! ALWAYS-A-GIRL!SAM FTW!), an Iron Man crossover (Tony/Sam, because in every other one I've seen, it's been either Tony/Dean or Sam/Dean/Tony, and that's just not the same; Sam deserves some lovin' as well, especially since hating Sam seems to be a fandom sport to some people). Also, a follow up to There's No Such Thing As Unicorns, which I'm titling Hitting the Pleasure Button Until You Die, because that's fucking hilarious. Shut up, I have a twisted since of humor.

Supernatural RPF - Ahem. Well, someone (*cough*high_flyer87*cough*) gave me a Misha/Jared plot bunny, and there desperately needs to be some more Misha/Jared in the world, because they are adorable, and given to groping each other in public. Well, Jared gropes everyone in public, and so does Misha, but that just makes them more adorable. Except that I'm kind of OCD about timelines (they have to be perfect, dammit, perfect) and I haven't been able to write anymore without thinking, "Wait, which con did that happen at? And this? When did this happen? ARWG!!" So, I have it started, but then I got scared by the years and years of "canon" that I'd have to shift through to satisfy my OCD side.

NCIS - I got nothin'. Sorry. I haven't watched the show in a year, and as much as I love Tony and Gibbs and Abby and all, I just don't see that changing. However, I still have some WIPs that I might finish. There are some more installments on the DC&RW, but I'm hesitant about that because Kacia Noor somehow found her way into my original TV show, which I actually want to get made some day, and the second big fic is told from her point of view and deals with a lot of her backstory. I don't want to confuse issues when I, hopefully, get things moving. So, I have stuff, it's just not something that I think I'm going to share. (On another note: I'm up for an award for a Ziva/McGee fic! Which is, well, surprising! Considering how much I hate Ziva.)

Stargate SG-1 - I'm a totally n00b to the fandom, but Jesusfuck, what's with all the Sam-hate? She is fuckin' badass! I'm only about half-way through S3, and I'm already sick of it. This may or may not be because I don't see what's so fantastic about Jack's dick in the first place. I love me some Sam/Daniel. But, I do have a Jack/Daniel idea that someone else has no doubt done before. I also have a genderfuck always-a-boy!Sam/always-a-girl!Daniel fic that I really, really want to do, because it just fills me with glee. :D On a reading note, I really want some Daniel-and-Teal'c friendship fic, because I think a bromance between them would be adorable. But yeah, what's with the ship war? Why can't they just have an SG-1 orgy and leave it at that?

Avengers/Marvel - I've been on a Marvel kick lately, and I've almost completely fallen for Steve/Tony. They're just so damn adorable and codependent. :D (I say this as an avid X-Men fan who was happily ignoring the Avengers until a few weeks ago. And, btw, Gambit/Rogue all way, with a bit of Logan/Rogue thrown in for fun.)*

White Collar - Elizabeth/Peter/Neal OT3 ALL THE WAY! They are just so adorable.

- Hardison/Parker/Eliot OT3. Because they are so fucking cute. They're the reason I watch the show. <3 (It's certainly not for the Sophie/Nate angst. Ugh. Or the plot, for that matter, because I usually figure out a better way to do the damn job than they do.) 

Criminal Minds
- I ship Reid/Anyone, and also JJ/Prentiss (DAMN YOU CBS). And JJ/Will, because they are adorable together. I haven't really got anything major planned, though there are some scraps that may turn into something floating around my computer. Somewhere. Oh, and the rest of the fics in the fashion mag!AU that I have half-completed. Because I'm just that lame. I haven't picked a main pairing yet, though there's some JJ/Will + baby adorableness in the one I'm almost done with.

....Um, I can't think of anything else. *thinks* Er, I'm kind of out of most of my anime fandoms (though I AM EAGERLY AWAITING THE SUPERNATURAL ANIME, fuckyes!) and I haven't read anything for them in a long, long time. There are some more fandoms that I'm on a read-only basis anyway, and I don't think anyone wants to hear me rant about Danny Phantom or Ben 10 or whatever. Ahem. Now that I'm done showing myself to be a complete dork.

* For an added level of dork to my family, my mom is a DC fan, while I'm a Marvel girl (though we both agree that Wonder Woman is hot, and Batman is awesome, and WTF is up with Superman in general - and also that Tony Stark is a woobie of great proportions, though I think I enjoy that more than she does).

As I said in this post, CBS, as well as canceling two hit dramas head by women - Ghost Whisperer and Cold Case - and raising Charlie Sheen's (yes, domestic violence Charlie Sheen) paycheck, is casting aside long-time cast member AJ Cook and significantly reducing the episode number of co-star Paget Brewster. That is, the only full time female cast member who will be left will be Kirsten Vangsness. The network announced that a new female character will be introduced - because it's obvious that female characters are easily interchangeable - and AJ Cook will be given one episode in which to rap up her five-year stint on the show.

One episode. After five seasons, she will have ONE EPISODE to give us a 'believable' reason for JJ to run off into the sunset? And you just know that she's going to get shot or something. Because CBS is full of dicks like that.

CBS is the same network that runs NCIS, a show that has its own host of feminism problems - any issues that you (and most definitely I) have with Ziva David aside. The NCIS track record: Kate was shot by Ari, Jenny was murdered, Michelle turned out to be a traitor, the Jeanne fiasco, and the entire Ziva plot line.... Ahem. Yeah, good job there.

And then there's the mess that it CSI, but that's so expansive and convoluted that I don't think I can do it justice without either boring myself to death or getting very, very angry. And you won't like me when I'm angry.

What is with television these days? What happened? It seemed like we were heading in the right direction, but then all this happens?

You know what, FUCK YOU, CBS. Assholes. Give us back our strong, awesome, competent, non-crazy, kick-ass, mature, intelligent, amazing role-models!

The character roles of Special Agent "JJ" Jereau is being cut entirely, and the role of Emily Prentiss is being significantly reduced to the point of not even appearing in every episode.

Criminal Minds is famous for its balanced cast, but the show is making cuts to the female characters only - not, they assure us, for financial reasons, but for 'creative' ones. This is disheartening and disappointing. I really love this series, but I will not be able to support them if they do this. None of the male actors took pay cuts or role cuts, even though I'm sure they would be glad to if it meant keeping their coworkers. The cast seems close; they can't be happy about this. I am not happy about this.

Criminal Minds Trims Cast  Article about the cut.
Keep AJ Cook & Paget Brewster on Criminal Minds! Petition  A petition to keep AJ and Paget on the show as is.
CBS feedback form A way to send hatemail feedback to CBS about this change.

This is what I wrote to CBS:

Subject: Criminal Minds

You are cutting the role of JJ and limiting the role of Prentiss in your hit show Criminal Minds. If this happens, I will gladly stop watching. I'm a woman, and watching a show that does not marginalize women in the work place, and that shows them as having the same feelings and strengths and weakness as men - a show that does not pat them on the head and tell them to go home - is what kept bring me back again and again. It's what makes me buy merchandise and support advertisers. But if this new move goes forward - if you decide to 'take a new creative direction' by cutting the roles of two-thirds of your female cast - I will just as gladly take my money elsewhere.

The may not seem like much to you, but there are a huge number of fans just as angry as I am over this move. Your show has a winning formula, one that brings fans together and gets them to support you. I don't think you realize how much of your audience is female - and that that fact does mean that they want to see their role-models and inspirations disappear in favor of a male cast.

This is disappointing personally, as a woman, and as  fan. You are making an unnecessary change to something that works. You have millions of fans who tune in everyday to watch your show. I can guarantee that if you go through with this, you will have at least one less.

Please, if you're a fan of Criminal Minds and don't want to see two strong, independent female characters go, please write them and express this. Maybe we can save this situation, or at least cause enough of a fuss that no one will ever want to do it again.

Fandoms: (It's a mixed bag). Criminal Minds, Star Trek XI RPF, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Pine, Supernatural (both Sam and Dean), Matthew Gray Gubler, and there's a graphic of me in here too. I'm too lazy after all the work I did yesterday posting my baby to write explanations for them.

If you want to know more about something, either comment or go my dA account (and comment).

Rating/Warnings/Spoilers: PG, extreme bullying, stream of consciousness, spoilers for Elephant's Memory.

Author's Note and  Disclaimer: I don't own Criminal Minds, obviously. Writing kid!Spencer was fun, if a little harder than I imagined. I hope that I did alright. Tell me what you think! :D

Summary: This is what Spencer Reid remembers: Jeering peers, harsh hands, humiliation, cold metal, and the complete absence of stars.

I wrote a fashion mag!AU for Criminal Minds. Yes, I turned one of the bloodiest, creepiest shows and turned it into a freakin' fashion magazine. I have no shame, and certainly no regrets. Cheers! 

Title: A Stitch Away From Making It
Author: [ profile] snowdarkred 
Rating/Warnings: PG, minor swearing, fashion
Words: ~5K
Summary: The BAU team. Working at a fashion magazine. Saving the day and looking fabulous while doing it.
Author's Note and  Disclaimer: What I know about the fashion industry could fit inside a silver thimble. What I don't know about the fashion industry could fill oceans. The information used in this fic has been gleaned from The Devil Wears Prada, Project Runway, and, as well as my brief year working at a nonprofit newspaper. I don't really keep up with what's 'in' at the moment, and I don't usually care. This was just a gift to myself for getting my life back on track. The title is, yes, from a Fall Out Boy song. Also, this is my first CM fic.

A Stitch Away From Making It
Reid and Garcia save the day, Morgan looks at dresses, Elle is exasperated, Prentiss is wise, Hotch is Hotch, JJ is hungry, and Rossi is late. )
