  • Astrid/Astrid, Fringe
  • Fionna/Bubblegum (art), Adventure Time
  • Marceline/Bubblegum (art), Adventure Time
  • Betty/Gladys, Bomb Girls
  • Ann/Elizabeth, Parks & Rec
  • and this beginning scrap of Jess/Julia, New Girl that wishes it could grow into a real story if only its writer were a writer and not a floppy jelly person with no focus or organization or drive:

Jess and Julia hang out sometimes, which is strange since they were never friends in the first place, and especially after Julia dumped Nick it seemed like they probably should have both been relieved that they wouldn't have to see each other anymore.

And they don't -- have to see each other anymore. It takes them a little while to notice, though, and by then, it's too late.

Jess invites Julia over to the next Wine and Yarn Night With the Girls out of a feeling of obligation, and out of any number of feelings she probably has ample right to, Julia doesn't show.

"Sorry," she says on the phone the next day when guilt makes her call Jess. "I just don't think I can go back there so soon."

"It's fine," Jess assures her. "That was probably uncool of me to do in the first place. Like, way to put you in an awkward sitch! Dangerrrr, Julia Lawyerson." She sings it: "Ruuuude!"

"Well, kind of, yeah." Julia tries to swallow the acerbic words back even as she says them, and hits her forehead. She can just picture Jess's anime eyes blinking over one shiny diamond-pointed tear each. Goddammit, now she's guilty again. "Um. Do you want to go get coffee or tea or whatever frothy things you probably drink instead of caffeine somewhere other the house where my ex-let's-not-put-a-label-on-it lives?"

"Oh, how fun! Yes, definitely let's." Jess agrees in a whiplash of offended offensive obligation, and that's how the post-Nick era begins.

Jess does like tea. So, actually, does Julia. "See?" Jess says, moving her head like a rapping turtle in an early 90s cartoon. "I can drink caffeine and stay up all night with the big kids. Sheyee."

"Shee?" Julia bites her lip in consternation.

"It's like sheeeyit, but, you know. I don't like to swear."

"Oh, sure." Julia looks down at her cup and then back up under heavy-lidded eyes. "Or shizzle, if you prefer."

"You're making fun of me," Jess says, her teacher voice diffident.

Julia shrugs a bit. "You are fun."

Jess gives her a tiny smile.

So that is... 3059 words in six fandoms and four complete ficlets plus two maybe-wips. headdesk. FEMSLASHUARY, EVERYBODY. #ITSAPROCESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
