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.

Stuff done today:

1. Failed to give blood, because my hemoglobin count was just a hair too low, boo hiss. Promptly signed up to try again in two weeks.

2. Edited and submitted my first assignment for my Cultural Anthropology class. \o/

3. Read and watched the first week content for my Interpersonal Communication class. (The Anthro class is pretty cool, albeit basic, because anthropology is inherently cool -- humans are weird and wonderful and terrible in all our variations! This class, on the other hand, is tripping my bullshit meters something fierce. Nonetheless, the professor seems nice and I am trying to maintain an open mind.)

4. Got paid to sit around doing mostly nothing (well, and my college coursework) at Not the IRS from 9am to 7pm.

5. Bought new socks.

6. Bought groceries.

7. Nearly finished the first scene of my super-belated FTH fic, after implementing the un-stalling solution I came up with a few days ago.

8. Started reading We Have Not a Government: The Articles of Confederation and the Road to the Constitution by George Van Cleve, because why not.

9. Petted a cat. :)

Last night I dreamed that my parents, my sister, and I were on a road trip like we used to do when Vicky and I were kids -- actually, I think that in the dream, Vicky and I were both teenagers again. We were heading to Minnesota, which is normal. But we were driving around in a big white van with, like, folding beds and curtains in the back instead of a regular car.

Vicky was fooling around online and found a report of a woman who'd come home with her young daughter and found three strangers in her attic laying out bodies on the furniture and floor. Obviously she panicked and ran out.

Vicky decided we should investigate this, and for some reason Mom and Dad thought this was a great idea. I was really tired and just wanted a nap, but didn't object.

cut for lengthCollapse )

But that's another dream. :)

Back in April of 2017, an ff.net anon left a series of misogynist, ableist, and homophobic flames on Tides, one of my old Naruto fics. Ten months later, the anon has returned to leave a flame on Rituals, another old Naruto fic.

I can tell it is the same person because the choice of insults and general tone of performative outrage is exactly the same.

To wit: cut for insultsCollapse )

...

I think the part of this whole experience I find most hilarious is that the anon clearly spends a fair amount of time reading fanfiction -- and reading it relatively closely; the flames on "Tides" correspond to events in the chapters instead of just being generic insults -- and yet doesn't seem to have grasped that the point of fanfic is that it doesn't have to recapitulate canon. It's a giant what-if game! You can just make shit up! That is, in fact, the point.

Anyway, this person makes my morning whenever they show up, but I really do hope, for their own sake, that they grow up and find hobbies less likely to drive them into rage aneurysms.

Today I was productive! In no particular order, I:

-read a large chunk of my ethnographic study for my Anthropology class

-went to church; afterward, during coffee hour I wrote a postcard about gun control laws for the social justice committee to mail to my Congressperson

-did my laundry

-paid my rent

-took a 2.5 hour nap since I'd slipped into a mild sleep deficit over the past week

-talked to Upstairs Neighbor E about her guest's use of my driveway (he owes me another $30 to stay parked there through March)

-vacuumed my apartment

-wrote to-do lists for the next eight days

-figured out why the opening scene of my current WIP has been fighting me up, down, and sideways, and how to finally make it work

-organized my outline for what will be my next WIP (and wrote down the character names so I can't accidentally forget them)

And now I am going to bed, because I have a bunch more stuff I'd like to get done tomorrow. :)

I was scheduled to work 9am to 9pm today, and even though I clocked out early at 8pm (because there were two other people in the office and I'd finished my final client), I am still in that weird floaty state of tiredness where I keep feeling like there ought to be something interesting enough to stay awake for yet I don't have the brain power to do anything creative, and also standing up to brush my teeth and move to my bed sounds like too much work.

Bluh.

Also I really want some Fritos, or maybe tortilla chips, or even some kind of interesting potato chip with ruffles. (Ruffled potato chips taste three times as good as smooth potato chips. I have no idea why this is true, but it is empirically true. I've run tests.) Something salty and greasy and terrible for me.

Or samosas. Samosas would also work.

I need to buy some samosas from the Indian takeout counter in the Commons food court on Monday. *makes note*

In summary: it was a good visit.

Less briefly: my parents came up to Ithaca around noon on Sunday, whereupon we left Dottie at my apartment and drove to Americana Winery, where we did a wine tasting and then had lunch at their attached café. After that, we went to a Cayuga Chamber Orchestra concert (part of their chamber music series rather than the full-on orchestral series) at my church. Coincidentally, the first half of the program was an oboe quintet piece. As a former oboist myself, I always appreciate a good oboe showcase. :)

The concert was shorter than we'd expected, so we headed back to my apartment to open presents (a new nightshirt! new quilted pillow slips that go under pillow cases to keep weird scalp grease off the pillow!), after which we drove a bit up the lake to Rogue's Harbor for dinner. Dessert was apple cake once again back at my apartment.

This morning Mom and I went shopping for a few things, which was useful. Then we picked Dad and Dottie up from their motel, left the dog at my apartment again, and did brunch at Friendly's. And then I came to work, where I will remain until 9pm tonight.

Summary: When they were twelve, Elektra and Matthew escaped from the Hand. Twenty years later, they've built lives in the corrupt port city of Hell's Kitchen -- Elektra as a cartel assassin, Matthew as a medium and exorcist. But the Hand is about to find them, and they'll have to reclaim all the pieces of their pasts if they want to survive and save their adopted home. (1,500 words)

Note: This started as a kinkmeme prompt fill, though I'm not sure how faithful it actually is to the prompt. It's also obviously the opening scene of a longer story, but since it stands reasonably well on its own as a character and worldbuilding exercise, I'm going to post it as-is and make no promises about ever writing the continuation.

Also, I am totally claiming this as a wild card fill for my Daredevil Bingo card, using the AU: urban fantasy prompt. *wry*

Like a Knife All BladeCollapse )

We'll see if that insists on turning into an actual novella, or whether posting this scene was enough to appease the plot bunny and let me focus on other things.

This fic was written in response to the prompt: we, the blankets, and the pet have tangled into an irreversible knot on the couch and if no one comes save us this might be our end, from [tumblr.com profile] snogfairy's wholesome domestic prompts list. It's also a fill for my final [community profile] cottoncandy_bingo square: free. Part of the Leaf and Letter AU.

I wrote this in sections at work today, because I was very bored, didn't feel like reading the books I had on hand, and am currently stuck on the story I'm actually trying to concentrate on, blargh. (2,200 words)

[ETA: The slightly revised final version is now up on AO3!]

Till It Is Lost in FleecesCollapse )

In summary, yay, I wrote a thing! :)

I felt better on Monday, until about halfway through my shift at Not the IRS, at which point I began degenerating until I felt like death warmed over. I have felt like death warmed over for most of today as well, but left work only two hours early (because money and inertia, I guess). And now I am going to take a shower and collapse, because UGH.

Also I really hope tomorrow's snowstorm is as large as predicted, and we close early. I could really use the extra sleep...
