luciazephyr: Dress in Drag and Marry the Doctor! ([DW] Book of the Still. Really happened.)
oops I tripped and wrote Eighth Doctor Adventure fic.

Title: with apologies to richard siken
Warnings: Some violent imagery.
Summary: Let's say the Devil is played by two men. We'll call them Fitz. (Eight/Fitz. Take-off of Siken’s “You Are Jeff”)

Notes: Thank you to LJ user lelek for the short-notice beta. 8D

Read it at AO3.

Does any Eighth Doctor Adventures fan still follow me?

I need a beta. I need a beta hardcore.

I'm writing a Fitz Kreiner character study in the style of Richard Siken's "You Are Jeff".

Let's say the Devil is played by two men. We'll call them Fitz. The one that you left has gone rotten in his middle, soured like milk left out for two thousand years. The other isn't Fitz, but you don't remember that, and that's about the same thing. He plays the role so well. It'd take more than the naked eye to see the faults in the performance, and it's rude to criticize the actor before the curtain's down.

Sit back. Enjoy the show. Wait for intermission.


halp.
luciazephyr: Fitz Kreiner, a man called Fortune ([DW] a man called Fortune)
a follow up to the last post, because Fitzgerald Michael Kreiner is possibly my favorite character in anything ever of all time okay.

"But you’re not my ancestor, are you?" hissed Father Kreiner. "You’re an ersatz version of me, created by the Remote over many years. [...] You’re a fake. You’re a fiction. Truth is, boy, I am the person the Doctor first met, first took from Earth in the TARDIS." He closed his eyes, and the lids fluttered as though he were searching deep in his memory. "I was the young man who went to China with Mao’s army. I wept at the sound of the T’hiili Queen’s song. I saw the double sunrise on Cherantrin V. It was me who travelled with him and ... Samantha? Yes, with him and Sam to Vega Station..."

There was a long pause. Fitz couldn’t think what to say to all this. Couldn’t admit it might be true. Couldn’t speak.

Kreiner’s eyes snapped open again. The Faction monster said, "I am the real Fitzgerald Michael Kreiner."

"And I claim my five pounds."
-The Ancestor Cell, Father Kreiner (original Fitz) vs Clone/'Real' Fitz



Who is Fitz Kreiner... Fitz Kriener is flawless, I hear his guitar is insured for $10,000!

Fitz is technically the longest-running companion in the DW series. He's the main companion in the Eighth Doctor Adventures, a series of book that are pretty fucking awesome most of the time. Eight is personally my favorite Doctor thanks to said books, because he's just so damn interesting. But this is about Fitz, not EDA!Eight.

Yeah, but who IS he? )


Also, Lullabee, someday we should break down and post those Abridged EDAs. Some were pretty fucking funny, I think.

Lance Parkin: OOOOH CAPITALISM, DO ME HARDER.


And for anyone who would like more info on the EDA books, Lullabee and I wrote the TV Tropes page on it (check out the Characters page for a full list of just how fucked up and amazing Fitz is). Not that I'm not still pissed at TV Tropes for their bullshit, but Lull and I wrote those pages, so.

And and if you like the audio adventures, Fitz got a guest spot in the Company of Friends work, and it was written by his creator, Stephen Cole, and while BFA!Eight =/= EDA!Eight, it's a good portrayal of Fitz's character. Besides the accent. Dunno WTF happened there.

AND AND AND if you want the EDA books, the mass majority are seriously out of print, but there are PDFs the fandom circles around. Hit me up and I'll get them for you if you're interested.

So apparently delicious might be sold instead of shut down. RELIEF LIKE WHOA.

I'm kind of taking a night off from writing fic for the first time in about 35 days. Ya rly, guize. LET'S DO SOME MEMES!


The Fannish End Of the Year Meme! )

Also, I think I had, uh, a LOT of new people watching this LJ now. Hi, new people! Lemme find some relevant "who the hell is this lucy person" memes...

Ask me one fandom-related question in the comments. This can be fandom specific, general, or about fandom/lj stuff/fic writing/etc. in general.

Feel free to ask more than one if you fancy. Hell, don't feel obligated to keep it fannish if you want to ask me something about me.

To save a few of the obvious: Lucy, American, lesbian but currently celibate, Missouri by way of Florida and New York, Aquarius-Saggitarius, Year of the Snake, and yes I do curse a lot, sorry about that.


Also I may possibly make another post about my mental casting for the Dresden Files. Might. Probably. Yeah.
luciazephyr: Book of the Still, the time traveler's lifeline ([DW] Keep calm and kiss men)
I, for one, welcome Eight's fantastic steampunky outfit and it's awesome new sonic.

For EDA purposes, I will assume he picked this out sometime after the Book that Never WasThe Gallifrey Chronicles after borrowing Fitz's coat and realizing leather is quite warm and comfy.

The Eight Doctor looking blurry but yummy under the cut )

HE CLEANS UP NICELY AMIRITE? Mmmmm Eight.

I bet the satchel is dimensionally transcendental, unlike the coat pockets. He can keep snacks in it to indulge his "almost maternal urge" to feed people. Like, a thermos of tea and a box of biscuits and some apples and pears.

btw, re: the pockets, they aren't bigger on the inside like Ten claims. Every Doctor apparently rips the seams in the lining of their coats to turn the entire coat into a giant pocket to carry stuff in. Eight mentions it becomes a problem when you stuff something in there and it falls around your back so you can't grab it.

Frontier Worlds, page 72. Totally true. Gawd, I love the Eighth Doctor. PAUL MCGANN. THE EDAS. AWESOMENESS.

I'm probably going to podfic come to me with remedies. Mostly something to keep the creative juices flowing, and for [livejournal.com profile] thought_goddess. ♥ And it'll be good practice. I have 50K words of fic to get good at the whole podficcing thing, which I've always wanted to do.

So, just to summarize my current list of fannish projects.

Wot Aunt Lucy is Working On, in order of importance:
  1. a nice day to start again, the sequel to ctmwr. Or, as I call it, "WHY AM I WRITING ABOUT [spoiler], I HATE [spoiler]S!"


  2. the GRIMDARK fic, wherein I make up for treating Fitz like gold in everything I've written so far by utterly demolishing him and taking his character apart piece by piece. I have no happy medium between romantic fluff and GRIMDARK ANGST. I have no overall title, but it's a three-parter: The Nameless Planet, Morpheus, and The Lighthouse.


  3. some unabashed kinkmeme Eight/Fitz. Prompt: Time Lord purr when interested, relaxed, and aroused. I'm a weird one, I know.


  4. The Abridged EDAs. We have many done, but we're missing major ones like "Shadows of Avalon", mostly because I cannot make it through the book. I think maybe Lullabee and I should just post the one's we've done. It's just for fun anyway and we can always add (or open it up for others to add, perhaps?). I'll mention that to her when I see her next online.


  5. The Podfic is obviously going to take quite some time, so I'm not sure when it'll be done. Also, I have a lot of silly little things. I think Lullabee wanted me to draft my idea for a EDA telly show (two series with specials in mind), I have to bug her about her fucking fabulous AU fic, and things like the Harem fic.


So yeah. And, yanno, school. Obviously. :laughs: And Mass Effect 2! My schedule basically works like during the week, I do fic and assignments due before Sunday, then Fri-Sat-Sun I do homework and if I finish on time, I play ME2. MY LIFE, MAN.

OKAY SO FIRST OFF, ELLA AND LULLABEE, YOU NEED THIS MUSIC

I have Arcade Fire's The Suburbs.

So that is three consecutive albums by this band that must go on my list of greatest albums I have ever heard.

How does AF even exist? I keep thinking they are some deranged product of my imagination sprung from the rage and disappointment I feel whenever I accidentally listen to modern music on the radio. They are... poignant and obscenely beautiful and, oh, ARE A INDIE ROCK BAND WITH A STRINGS SECTION HELLO

And you all must have all their albums.

Their first, Funeral, which I posted here before: http://www.sendspace.com/file/diedde

Their second, Neon Bible: http://www.sendspace.com/file/zzccu2

AND THE LATEST AND GREATEST, The Suburbs: http://www.sendspace.com/file/qh58dk (Note, when I was RARing this one, I got an error but I think it worked. If the file is borked, LEMME KNOW. I will provide a fixed one!)


Aaaaaand I have been writing a lot of fic, but without finishing any. Here's a taste of some! I'll try to get, uh, one of them done and posted soon!

When you see this, post a snippet from your works-in-progress.

The (Abridged) Eight Doctor Adventures - written by myself and the incomparable Lullabee )

'a nice day to start again', sequel to 'come to me with remedies' )

the one where Fitz accidentally becomes a sex slave and is quite good at it (also with Lullabee!) )

I'm also working on a bastard combination of Zagreus, a dash of Amy's Choice, a treatise on why Anji is awesome, Paul McGann's sexy evil voice, and this fan-made map of the TARDIS that can be summarized as IN THE GRIMDARK OF THE GRIMDARK, THERE IS ONLY GRIMDARK. It'll have a happy ending tho.

ALSO [livejournal.com profile] lullabee_lj IS WORKING ON A FUCKING PHENOMENAL AU THAT YOU MIGHT WANT TO ASK HER ABOUT. :PEER PRESSURE:

PS: Okay so I am so sick of not having a paid account, so I need to get one. But apparently I have zero credit history so I can't get a card to use for online purchases. Any ideas on how to get a card?

Title: Obligatory Experiences to be Repressed and Never Spoken of Again
Rating/Warning: MASSIVELY NC-17. Porn porn porn porn, a bit of language, and the usual dub-con that comes with an Aliens Made Them Do It fic.
Characters/Pairings: Eight/Fitz, with a side-order of Anji.
Word Count: 5524. Because I am incapable of writing a PWP correctly.

Summary: The name of the game is plausible deniability.

Notes: I couldn't find an Aliens Made Them Do It fic for this fandom. I come from the SGA fandom, so this was a crime that had to be stopped. Thanks again to [livejournal.com profile] lullabee_lj for letting me write at you.

Some things just have to be written, that is my only excuse. )

Sorry. Kinda. Not really. 83

My plan was to post another chapter every two days or so, but fuck that. I'm going to edit this thing all night and post as I finish each part. I figure this way it'll be one day of me spamming everyone instead of several days of spamming. So I'm sorry for the coming deluge of posts.

Title: come to me with remedies (part 1 of 6)
Rating/Warnings: NC-17 for explicit sex, mental issues, and Fitz's mouth.
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lucia_tanaka (with amazing help from [livejournal.com profile] lullabee_lj)
Characters: the Obverse!versions of the Doctor, Fitz, and Anji. Fitz/Doctor.
Summary: A year's time in a blue house in a tiny English town. The ups and downs of the lives of a not-so-perpetual slacker, a daydream believer, and a terribly sensible trader.
Word Count: Just under 50,000. No, really.

Notes: This started as pointless porn-writing practice. It now spans four Google Documents and is about half the length of the source book. IDEFK, folks. Also, this fic practically runs on stupid references, apologies in advance. Also also, this fic probably requires knowledge of The Blue Angel's Obverse to understand.

luciazephyr: Book of the Still, the time traveler's lifeline (Default)
holy shit, when did this fic get to be almost 10,000 words?!

They haven't even snogged yet, what the fuck.



This was originally going to be a PWP. WHAT HAPPENED. Why can I never stick to my basic plan when I set out to write fic? The plan was "Obverse fic with sex" and now it's turning into a monster.

oh god I have to go to bed in a half hour, fucking morning shift at work. THIS IS LUCY'S LIFE: work in morning, go home, write fic for hours, go to bed while it is still light out because I have to be up at four AM why god why.

Wednesday, I am going out to find a new job. Fuck 4 AM, I hate it.

-Lucy

PS: My feet still hurt.
PPS: yes now I feel better. it's my LJ and I'll vent if I want to, vent if I want to, vent if I want toooo~
PPPS: broke 10K, still no snoggage, but there is heavy flirting. SLOWLY BUT SURELY. :goes to bed now lol:
luciazephyr: Book of the Still, the time traveler's lifeline (Default)
I am so fucking sick of having to go to bed at sodding 9 PM to get to work at sodding 6 AM. I am so looking for another job. I enjoyed working there but I'm done. I want to spend time with my friends and Mum and be able to leisurely spend my evenings writing, not frantically watching the clock and going, "okay, only one hour to bed, okay can't stay up longer so I must finish this sentence".

Mum is laughing at me and my hatred of mornings. Apparently she totally knew this would be the thing to make me jobhunt again. Yeah yeah, bravo, Mum, you're psychic.

In other news, I'm writing what will eventually be Porn Without Plot. LONG ASS FIC that is also PWP, yeah, because while it is long, it's meandering and I have no idea what the conclusion will be. FML.


Relatedly, I have a google doc titled "characterization notes from the EDAs" which is basically all the passages of the EDAs that I really like copied into a doc. This bit from Coldheart remains my absolute favorite moment I've read yet.

what is it with Doctors and fob watches )

-Lucy

PS: Someone should write a five ways along the lines of Five NuWho Episodes That Would Have Been Totally Different With Eight'n'Fitz. Admittedly, I mostly just want to do "Parting of the Ways" and have Fitz ask, "be honest now, was it a necessary procedure to snog me or were you just having a go?" BECAUSE I HAVE ALWAYS WONDERED THIS.
luciazephyr: Eight looking dreamy and lost ([DW] The Romantic Amnesiac)
When you see this, post a snippet from your works-in-progress.

in which Fitz Kreiner doesn't read a self-help book for torrid interspecies romance, but that's the basic plot of this fic actually )

in which the Obverse!Doctor breaks the laws of physics with arts and crafts )

Golly, I have a headache. Why does medicine take so long to kick in?

OH HEY WHILE I'M HERE: Would a British person refer to the mix of lemonade and iced tea as an Arnold Palmer, or is that just an Americanism?
