Master List of Elizabeth Culmer's Fiction
---------------------------------------------

FANFICTION:

General Disclaimer: These stories are based on characters and situations created and owned by other people and corporations. I make no money from this borrowing of intellectual property, and intend no copyright or trademark infringement.

Organization: This list is organized primarily by fandom; within each fandom, it's arranged first by associated story cycles and then by writing date. Word counts and writing dates are approximations.

Content/Warning Policy: 1) I am not consistent about warnings! I use them when I remember, for a few relatively broad categories of potentially problematic content, but if something is off-page, non-explicit, or generally backgrounded, I probably won't think to note it in the metadata. Read at your own risk! 2) The things I try to warn for are explicit sex, rape, murder, torture, cannibalism, incest, depression/suicide, familial dysfunction, and occasionally also societal dysfunction (aka dystopia). Sometimes I just slap a general content warning on all my fic for a given fandom and don't label each individual fic. I also don't generally warn for violence, unless the violence in a fic is dramatically out-of-step with the violence in its source canon. 3) I don't use any content rating system unless I'm posting to a site or community that requires or encourages ratings, because I find movie-style ratings counter-intuitive when applied to written fiction, and not particularly useful for anything other than denoting the presence of explicit sex, which I already note in the metadata.

Quality Rating System: I've marked my favorite stories with asterisks, on a scale of 1 to 4. The more asterisks, the more I like the story. This doesn't necessarily mean that stories without asterisks are bad, just that I don't like them as much. Also, I am not claiming to be an arbiter of taste; you may love stories I dislike, and vice versa. I am just providing a heads-up about the ones that I think are best written and/or most interesting.

Where To Read: What I post on my journal tends to be the equivalent of a beta draft. If I have cross-posted a story literally anywhere else (except Tumblr; fic content there is just a mirror of fic content here), read the version that isn't on my journal. Versions on AO3 are definitive. If there is no AO3 version, read the ff.net version. If there is no ff.net version, read the FictionAlley version (only applicable for HP fic). Failing that, read the journal version, because that's the only one there is.

Elizabeth Culmer, only a *little* bit crazy...
25 September 2018 @ 11:44 pm
Things and also stuff:

1. My relationship with Wilson (my diagonal neighbors' cat) has progressed to to the point where she actively asks me to pick her up and cuddle her against my shoulder. I can only do this for fifteen minutes or so before I have to retreat and blow my nose and wipe down all my skin and clothes, because allergies, but gosh it's relaxing and rewarding!

2. I finished my NFE fic on Saturday night. It very badly wants expansion and editing, but it passes the bus test (ie, if I got hit by a bus and died between now and the challenge archive opening, it would be a perfectly reasonable gift for my recipient) and editing is always easier than creating something out of nothing, so I'm not worried.

3. Work continues to chug along. Aunt Boss finally generated the new parking lease form, so I was able to print out all the individual template leases. It's nice to have that off my back. We are also well into the "endless stack of lease folders" stage of the game. I got several scanned on Monday, but had to leave an equally large stack for New Hire 2, plus all the uploading, Rent Manager date entry stuff, and emailing. Oh well, we're not paid to sit around and websurf, nice though that might be. *wry*

4. College also continues to chug along. Prof. G dumped about thirty-odd files onto Blackboard this week, which I will need to look through tomorrow. I think most of them will ultimately be irrelevant, but she is not terribly organized so there's no way to tell which are important and which aren't without opening them all. As for my government class, I just turned in my first essay tonight, after writing it in... I think literally twenty minutes? It's far from deathless literature, but considering the general writing level displayed in the online discussion boards, I think I am quite safe in saying it will be one of the top three essays submitted. *sigh* (Also, it's weird writing an essay that boils down to "let me describe Topic to you" instead of "let me justify an opinion about Topic to you!" It's like stepping back several rungs on the ladder of intellectual complexity. I kept feeling I really ought to be doing more, but no, the assignment was to explain/describe, so that's what I did.)

5. It's a pity Former Upstairs Neighbor E and her family moved away at the end of July, because the raspberries she planted three years ago have finally come into their own this August and September, and have been blooming and fruiting like nobody's business. I have taken to having raspberries as a small sidedish with every other night's dinner. (It turns out I am not terribly allergic to them at the moment -- I have been more sensitive in the past -- and so I can eat a dozen or so if I make sure to intersperse them with a few bites of something else.) They are delicious. I hadn't realized quite how much I missed the experience of fresh fruit (aside from citrus) until it was returned to me. :D

6. I did something to my left knee last Thursday -- wrenched it, strained it, slept on it funny, whatever -- and it has been complaining at me ever since, at various levels of pain. I dug out my old Ace knee brace (from when I really dinged up my knee playing soccer in high school), which has been helping, but the discomfort keeps lingering. :(

7. And last, some sad news.

I don't think I ever mentioned Mark Pedersen on this journal, but he was my church administrator for many years, and he died very unexpectedly on Sunday the 16th.

Here is his obituary: http://www.bangsfuneralhome.com/obituary/mark-pedersen

And here is a message from the First Unitarian Board of Trustees:

cut for length and a gesture at privacyCollapse )

I went to Mark's memorial service on Saturday morning, and cried a bunch. I didn't have a close personal relationship with Mark, but we attended an adult RE class together many years ago, we would sometimes run into each other on the bus in the mornings, and he was always willing to chat when I dropped by his office on errands. He was, in many ways, the heart of our congregation, and while I know we'll get through this in the long term, in the short term I'm not sure what we'll do without him.

Remix reveal day! I wrote SPNstuck (And Sit Them Down for Thanksgiving Dinner) for [archiveofourown.org profile] maypop.

---------------

SPNstuck (And Sit Them Down for Thanksgiving Dinner) (2126 words)
Fandom: Homestuck
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Roxy Lalonde, Dave Strider, Dirk Strider, Rose Lalonde, Kanaya Maryam, Karkat Vantas, Sollux Captor, Feferi Peixes, Terezi Pyrope
Additional Tags: Remix, Alternate Universe - Supernatural (TV) Fusion, Alternate Universe - No Sburb/Sgrub Sessions, Thanksgiving Dinner, Alternate Universe - Angels & Demons, Family Drama, Roxy Lalonde Is So Done, Rose Lalonde Gets All The Girls, Background Relationships, Background Poly, Strilondes

Summary: You still aren't entirely sure how your family got designated as hosts for the great angel/demon peace summit of 2018. The demons are obviously in it for the chaos, flames and shouting that might as well be your family's trademark. The angels make much less sense. Like, seriously, what kind of celestial morons think you and your siblings are any kind of diplomatic? And why pick Thanksgiving dinner when none of them need to eat in the first place? It's completely absurd and will only end in tears.

(Oddly, the day winds up being the most successful infernal/celestial summit anyone can ever remember.)

[Remixed from SPNstuck, by [archiveofourown.org profile] maypop]

---------------

As maypop says, Per tumblr user isozyme: "So the theory of supernaturalstuck is to take SPN, retain all the good setting shit, scoop out all the tragic manpain, and fill the void with tragic Rose Lalonde pain. In practice it is about how hot Rose is with really short hair and a lot of magic tattoos, and making fun of Sollux's butt, and what happens when you give all eight Strider-Lalondes a lot of weapons and extra battle trauma and sit them down for Thanksgiving dinner."

I went with four Strilondes rather than eight, but otherwise, yeah, that's the basic plan for this fic. :)

It finally happened: today Mom Boss dumped the first seven of the never-ending pile of leases on me for scanning, uploading, emailing, and filing. *sigh*

On the one hand, it's nice to have something to do instead of just sitting there occasionally answering phones (and packages and tours, but those are sporadic and don't really count), but on the other, ye gods I am going to drown in leases. *deeper sigh*

But for tonight, I think I'm just going to bed early.

I said to myself last night, "Liz, on Tuesday you will sleep late to continue paying down your sleep debt, and then, once you are no longer so knock-down tired, you will get up and be very productive!"

...Technically, that did happen. But not at all the way I intended.

Or in other words, I woke up around 8:30am to a text from Aunt Boss saying that New Hire 2 had called in sick with a stomach bug, and did I want to get some overtime? I thought about it for a couple minutes, then was like, "I can be there from 1pm to closing, but I will need to vanish for a bit at 4:30 because I have an important phone call. Is that okay?" Aunt Boss said yes, so I went back to sleep for another two hours, then did one of the several household chores I'd intended to devote a couple-three hours to, before heading in to work.

Which was busy, and I was productive! Just, you know, in a completely different direction from my plans. *sigh*

Oh well, at least I get paid.

And now I'm going to get back to plowing through some of the other stuff I had scheduled for today.

Remix Revival 2018 is live (as is the 2018 Madness archive), and I would like to tell you about what somebody did with one of my old fics!

It's Always About the Family (Blueprints Remix) (4963 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] CoffeeWithConsequences
Fandom: Inception (2010)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Ariadne (Inception), Eames (Inception), Original Female Character(s), Arthur (Inception)
Additional Tags: Remix, Family, mentor Eames, sister Ariadne, Sister-Sister Relationship, Siblings

Summary: This story is a remix of Elizabeth Culmer (edenfalling)'s wonderful story, Blueprints. Ariadne's sister, Penny, is (mostly) grown up and comes to visit her in Paris while she's working on the Fischer job. Unlikely as it seems, Penny leads the team to the clue they need to get into Robert Fischer's psyche.

---------------

"Blueprints" is a story I wrote very belatedly for Femgenficathon 2011, and which never got much attention because it's slice-of-life speculative backstory on Ariadne's childhood. I have always been okay with that -- I wrote the fic for myself and that anyone else has paid attention is a happy accident.

Anyway, my remixer took the basic idea of Ariadne having a much younger half-sister and ran with it, weaving Penelope into Ariadne's life up through and including the inception job. Also includes bonus Eames as a surprisingly effective mentor and mediator. :)

If you like stories about families, you should go read this and leave the writer lovely comments. ♥

Today was a slow day at work, until about 3pm when suddenly it was Very Busy (TM). We had two tours of 12+ people (which is a lot to cram into an apartment, and definitely too many to fit into an elevator), each going to multiple apartments in multiple buildings. Between and after the tours, we rented six apartments -- I mean, they were all studios except for one 2-bedroom unit, but still -- and answered extensive questions from a good dozen people as they tried to pick the exact right apartment. It was A Lot.

But I got my weekly Government reading, quiz, and original discussion board post done during the slow period (as well as making a spreadsheet that separates parking tenants who are graduating this spring from those who are not, so we can efficiently contact them about renewal options), and I got today's Spanish exercises done tonight, so I think that was a fairly productive day even aside from the Overwhelm in the late afternoon. Hmm. Oh, and I also did some edits on my remix which had been bugging me for a bit (typos, a badly-phrased line, killing some pointless filler adjectives/adverbs, etc.) so that was nice.

Once I got home, I boiled eight eggs while I was eating dinner, since I'd run out and will need one for breakfast in the morning, and hard-boiling eggs is the least spoon-intensive cooking task I know that still technically counts as cooking. :)

Now I think I will go to bed, because I haven't slept terribly well the past few days and I am Exhausted. *flops*

I survived opening day. \o/

We didn't get as many apartments rented as we should have, unfortunately, but I have done my part for the initial processing and now I get to spend a few days mostly twiddling my thumbs and taking people on a handful of tours while I wait for Aunt Boss and Mom Boss to generate leases, email them to new tenants, and help people through the signing process. Because I can't do my part of the leasing process until they get through enough of that stuff to dump a never-ending stack of folders on me, full of documents that need to be scanned, uploaded, entered into databases, emailed to tenants and parents, and ultimately filed. That will be oodles of fun.

But that's next week's problem. For now, I am mostly doing sales and handling even more of the background office stuff than usual so Mom Boss and Aunt Boss can work undistracted.

I made it safely to NJ, despite starting two hours later than intended. (Recovering from illness is tiring and requires extra sleep. Who knew? *wry*)

I've watered all of Mom's plants and gotten about halfway through my laundry project. The mail still hasn't arrived, and I don't know if that's because the post office screwed up or because my parents are at the very tail end of a delivery route and usually get their mail between 5pm and 6pm anyway. I guess we'll see if anything's turned up by the time I get home from dinner. (Since I am here basically to handle the gap between two stop-mail orders, the mail is kind of important.)

In about twenty minutes, I'm going to head over toward Chatham to meet Susan for sushi and possibly bowling. We'll see if we feel inspired in that direction once we're done with dinner. :)

College stuff: I'm a day ahead on my Spanish exercises for the moment, which is good, and I have done this week's two quizzes. I have also done this week's reading, discussion, and quiz for my Government class, but Prof. R just posted a new video link that I need to watch tomorrow. Homework is like laundry or dishes; new stuff piles up as fast as you clear out the old.

I also need to email Prof. G and Prof. R and ask them to fill out a progress evaluation that I can forward to my advisor, with whom I will finally have a phone appointment on Tuesday the 18th.

-----

Not the IRS stuff: I did the instructor/course evaluations for my two online classes, but I still haven't had a chance to do the practice exercises or the exams. I'm hoping that if I leave NJ early enough on Wednesday, I will be able to get back to Ithaca before the valley office closes and finish at least one of those classes. If not, well, there's always the next week.

-----

Rental Office stuff: We are deep in the throes of renewals and switches, and prepping for opening day on Thursday. I could have gotten some overtime Tuesday afternoon, but alas, I will be in NJ so that is not an option. I'm supposed to clock in by 8:30am on Thursday, so we can open promptly at 9am or even a little before.

I also need to deposit my bonus checks (full building, full parking, in-lieu-of-your-annual-raise-since-you-already-got-that-in-June) tomorrow morning before I leave town.

-----

Family and Friends: I am driving down to NJ tomorrow morning because the USPS only does mail stops for 30 days, and my parents' vacation is scheduled to run more like 40 days. So they've un-stopped the mail for tomorrow, and will re-stop it on Wednesday or Thursday. In the meantime, I get to sort through the backlog and package anything important to send on to Minnesota. (I also get to take shameless advantage of their washer and dryer, mwahahahaha!)

Susan and I have evening plans which start with dinner at a local sushi place and may then progress to bowling if we feel so inspired, since the bowling alley is practically next door to the restaurant. If we do not feel so inspired, well, there's always Netflix. *wry*

-----

Health stuff: I continued to feel kind of shaky and unsettled through the night and morning, with occasional bouts of disregulated internal temperature, but the ondansetron kept it to merely rumbles and gurgles and I hit the aches and fever/chills with ibuprofen and acetaminophen, respectively, so that was all right. I'm still heading to bed quite soon, since I remain very tired and would like to not fall asleep on the highway tomorrow.

-----

Writing stuff: I finished and posted my remix yesterday. I want to go back and edit it a bit more, but it's a perfectly functional story as it stands, so whatever. Now I get to refocus back onto the hopelessly shapeless mess that is theoretically my NFE fic. *sigh* I know I have the bones of a good story in there somewhere. It's just a question of finding the right spot to excavate.

-----

Miscellaneous: It has been raining. all. goddamn. day. On the one hand, the sound of rain on leaves and roofs is very soothing. On the other hand, ye gods and little fishes, could the sky let up for a minute and let us breathe?!

Also, after work today I detoured before heading home and picked up another Great Courses CD set from the library. It's not one of the ones I really truly most deeply wanted to listen to, but those were either checked out or at other libraries and would not have arrived in Ithaca in time for my trip tomorrow. So after I finish my overview of Chinese history, it's on to the Italian Renaissance, instead of the history of food or analyses of ancient battles. *hands* Maybe I will have time to get one of those other options for my travels at Thanksgiving and/or Christmas.
