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.

So far today I have:

1. Not frozen. \o/

2. Rented a studio.

3. Rented a parking space for half a year since the previous tenant got evicted for not paying the second half of his rent.

4. Mostly rented a parking space for next year (pending payment).

5. Crossposted a Homestuck ficlet to AO3.

6. Listened to one and a half lectures in Maya to Aztec: Ancient Mesoamerica Revealed (my latest Great Courses project).

7. Read up to about halfway through Hidden Figures (not counting end matter).

8. Borrowed two more ebooks, because why not!


Now I'm debating whether I want to linger at work for twenty minutes past closing in order to catch a bus that will take me to about three blocks from my house, or whether I want to catch an earlier bus down to the Commons, walk to the library to pick up two hardcopy holds that came in over the weekend, and then either walk a mile home or try to catch another #17 bus. (I am NOT walking down the hill with this amount of snow on the ground and college students' lackadaisical attitude toward shoveling.)

On the one hand, I do want to pick up the holds and it will make my Tuesday schedule much less fiddly. On the other hand, it's dark and cold and it would be nice to just go directly home.

Eh. I guess we'll see how I feel in an hour.

1. Bodies are terrible and I want chocolate.

2. I have no chocolate and no way to get any until tomorrow. :(

3. Wait, I do have brownie mix. What if brownies?

4. But then I'd have to make the brownies. Ugh.

5. I have to cook dinner anyway. Making brownies isn't that much more bother than steaming broccoli and boiling pasta.

6. I could listen to more lectures on pre-contact Mesoamerica while in the kitchen.

7. And also, brownies. Warm, delicious, chocolately brownies...

8. Oh, fine. *gets up, heads to kitchen*

Summary: Jade's attempt to make New Year's cookies derails into an impromptu singalong. (1,175 words)

Note: This fic was written in response to the prompt we wanted to cook but now we are dramatically singing a duet with kitchen utensils in our hands, this is quality PerformanceTM from [tumblr.com profile] snogfairy's wholesome domestic prompts list. It's also a [community profile] ladiesbingo fill for the square: Sigh No More, Ladies, on the grounds that that's notionally a song, and specifically a song telling women to stop paying attention to men and just have fun. ;) Part of the Leaf and Letter AU.

[ETA: the AO3 crosspost is now up!]

Roll for SeductionCollapse )

I am not entirely sure why puns ended up being the running theme of this ficlet, but whatever. Also, as you can probably tell this was intended as an actual New Year's fic. I didn't get it done in time (alas!) but late is better than never. :)

For the curious, here is a link to Jade's apron, though I think hers is probably light blue.

I got an email from my church saying all Saturday and Sunday activities have been canceled, which is not very surprising. It's not snowing at the moment, but we had light snow from ~9am to 11:30ish, and it's expected to pick up again around 4pm and then just snow like the dickens through ~10am Sunday morning.

I am at work, since Susan and I canceled her visit, and aside from a spate of furious activity in the first half hour, it's been slow. We do have an apartment tour scheduled for this afternoon, and people have expressed interest so I expect at least a few people to come, but after that I suspect activity will once again drop off as the weather closes in.

In mostly unrelated news, I applied for a New York Public Library card today, since all New York state residents (and apparently even people who just work and/or pay taxes in New York) are eligible for a free card. I am now in a weird sort of limbo where I have an account and can log in to place holds on stuff, but can't actually check anything out until my account has been validated and they mail me a physical card. Anyway, I took a photo of my drivers license (both the old card with photo and the paper temporary one for my renewed Real ID version), so hopefully that will get handled promptly. The NYPL, you see, has access to A LOT more ebooks than the Finger Lakes library system. :)

I've been reading a lot of books this January, which on the one hand feels weird -- I'm out of practice at it -- but on the other hand is a return to old habits and patterns. I have always been a voracious reader; it's just that in the past decade or so I switched more to fanfic, magazines, and random internet articles. I'm still kind of "eh" on a lot of original fiction, but nonfiction has always been my jam and there's something really sort of... hmmm... let's go with satisfying, about finishing a book and closing the covers on a journey. I've missed that.

I'm not sure how much of my shift away from books was related to getting internet access at home and how much was related to depression (I am much more likely to seek comfort and/or low-effort reading when I'm in a funk, and fanfic saves me from the work of getting invested in and figuring out a new world and new characters), but I am very sure that not trying to juggle college on top of work has freed up a bunch of both time and mental energy that I haven't yet managed to effectively corral into regular writing. (Even high-effort reading is still lower-effort than writing, alas. And also easier to do in disorganized scattered patches.)

Anyway, back to my current book: Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly. :)

Due to the approaching massive winter storm, the Finger Lakes Chamber Ensemble concert to which I have tickets has been canceled (hopefully with a rain date, but at the moment nothing is certain), and for that and also just because driving will be bad and we suspect most other potential Things To Do will also be closed or canceled, Susan and I decided she won't come up to visit this weekend after all. :(

I'm still gonna dust mop my kitchen floor, though. I have let that slide for far too long.

A small thing I did today:

As part of tidying my apartment in preparation for Susan's visit this weekend, I typed up a bunch of my paper notes into proper electronic files. This means that A) they won't be clutter anymore, and B) I will actually be able to find their contents when I need them instead of losing them at the bottom of a several inch thick stack of paper scraps.

Some of them I don't have any context for anymore, while others are pretty straightforward background worldbuilding or story outlining. And others are scraps of actual stories.

I have a lot more random story snippets than I remember actually writing.

Here are a few that I am pretty sure aren't going anywhere anymore:

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

Harry Potter - untitled Hermione and Ginny fragmentCollapse )


(I have no idea where I was going with that.)

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

Homestuck - untitled Rose Lalonde fragmentCollapse )


(Again, I have no idea where this was going.)

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

Daredevil - untitled post-Season 1 fragmentCollapse )


(I think I abandoned this because it was more didactic than I wanted.)

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

Daredevil - miscellaneous fragments whose context I have lostCollapse )


(I think the first was an attempt at a Black Jewels crossover/fusion thing. The second is clearly a divergence post-Season 1, but beyond that, I got nothing. *shrug*)

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

Riddlemaster Trilogy - Not Compassion (Those from the Sea)Collapse )


(This was clearly an attempt to give the nameless Earthmaster woman some backstory (and also assign her a name that seems plausible, given the "Those from the sea. Edolen. Sec," line that... I think one of the dead kids under the mountain says to Morgon?) and try to make sense of the inherent tension of a society where everyone has that kind of unfettered power even if they haven't quite realized it yet. But I never really had a plot, so it stalled out here.)

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

Original - untitled fairy-tale fragmentCollapse )


(This is one of the seeds of Sunbright and Shadowfall, even though I think it originally started as some kind of sideways Homestuck AU? By which I mean, IIRC this was loosely drawn from a dream, in which the lonely witch was Jade Harley, but I dunno exactly; it was a long time ago and I never wrote the details down.)

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

And that's that for my brain-dump. Everything else is either too fragmentary to be comprehensible, or is something I actually do still mean to finish someday.

I got an email from TC3 just now saying my diploma will be available for pickup next week, and if I don't pick it up in person by the 25th, they'll mail it to my address of record.

Since I don't really feel like taking three hours out of my day to go pick up some papers in person (even though I think, having glanced at my schedule, that I technically could do so), I guess I'll get it by mail in two or three weeks. :)

In unrelated news, I have my first Not the IRS client at 3:30pm, and I have the typical "oh god I've forgotten everything!!!" jitters, which I know are ridiculous and will settle out as soon as I get started. But right now, I think I will indulge in a little catastrophizing-ad-absurdum, to get it out of my system. *wry*

(By the time I hit massive targeted computer virus attacks and spontaneous combustion, I generally am too busy laughing at myself to keep being nervous.)

-----

ETA, 4:00pm Tax prep session went very smoothly and I got the client a part-year hardship exemption for the ACA penalty tax. \o/

I am trying to think of a household chore I dislike more than vacuuming, and I'm not really coming up with one.

Ugh.

*returns to shoving the beast around the apartment*

Things done today:

1. Worked 9am-3pm at Not the IRS, during which I made 30% of my contact calls (aka, calling people whose taxes I've prepared before and saying, "Hey, it's tax season! Let's make an appointment for you."). I loathe connect calls with every fiber of my being, so that is a much bigger deal than it sounds like.

2. Finished my third round of Not the IRS required paid training. (I will clock the actual paid time some other day this week, since I want the money but for obvious reasons I couldn't be simultaneously punched in under two work codes while at the office.)

3. Bought groceries.

4. Gave a person useful advice about bus routes.

5. Returned three library books, picked up a hardcopy hold that came in, and placed another ebook hold. I have decided I really like ebook borrowing. :D

6. Finished a Great Courses series on the Black Death.

7. Boiled eggs.

8. Backed up my computer.

Hopefully I'll manage another one or two Tasks before I go to bed, but even if not, I think that's a reasonable amount of progress.
