Welllll, I don't really know. This story is part of a much longer and collaborative-with-[personal profile] tropiavera 'verse, I think, but I'm not sure how to go about making such a thing. For now I'm just gonna settle on doing it piecemeal WIP-style, and nothing counts for real until I put it on AO3. Yes?

Parks and Recreation, Ann/Elizabeth (Leslie's ex campaign manager)
continued from this, at the request of [personal profile] aphrodite_mine

I've been unproductive these last two days. It's like Femslashuary means nothing at all! No good, no good.

So when I watched the Bomb Girls finale FINALLY and this came, I had to do its bidding. No other choice. Not in good conscience.

Betty/Gladys, Bomb Girls (spoilers thru 1.06)
warning: infidelity? i guess?

PG, 702 words )
allchildren: april ludgate, the best (♛ ya burnt)
After writing for the first three days of Femslashuary and feeling pressured to produce something postable before midnight, I decided to shift my goals a little bit to include a) fanart and b) process. So this is actually something I started months ago, as a thank you to Imogen for helping me with something, and worked on coloring over the past three days.

Adventure Time, Marceline/Bubblegum

totes safe for work art under the cut )

P.S. If you're not familiar with the canon, this 11 minute episode is all you need to see (to understand this art, anyway. I recommend the show!)
allchildren: kay eiffel's face meets the typewriter (☄ⁿ outlook)
This was a really quick one (midnight cometh). I might come back and try again later.

Astrid(/Astrid), Fringe (spoilers thru tonight's ep)

allchildren: emily and naomi (⎚ through the eyes of a girl)
Can I have my Cunnilingus Avengers badge now?

Sugar/Agnes, The Crimson Petal and the White (mini) (have seen thru ep 2 at the time of writing)

Putting this here for now because after 12 comics and everything else today, editing this and making tagging decisions on AO3 sounds *really hard*.

Deryn/Lilit, Goliath (au canon insert)

PG, 565 words )
allchildren: bonnie, caroline, and elena hold a seance (ⱴ found girls)
It has come to my attention that writing is hard, and I am not very good at it. In particular, what I lack is the ability to conceive of entire stories, with beginnings, middles, and ends. (Maybe even... outlines?! Glob save me.) Plot and action elude me on a level so basic that it is embarrassing. This Yuletide stretched me to my limit and left me feeling that with more time, I might have been able to make it into more of Story, but that has yet to be proven and requires the seed of a story TO prove it. 

It has also come to my attention that 90% of my shippy feelings lately are about femslash (and the other 10% is about an f/f/m OT3), so I really need to commit myself to writing it for reals.

Now, there are lots of other things I need to work on, writingwise. Like, either I should be writing to my strengths (humor, dialogue, sekrit emotional depth) more or flexing the things I always wanna write but suspect I kind of fail at (solemn dramz, action, explicit sex, linearity). I need to consider what my frequent themes are (emotional trauma/abuse, female sexuality and onanism as characterization) and what do to about that (????). And I just don't know how to go about any of this. 


but while I flounder about and butt my head against walls hopefully, I've decided to give myself a challenge: Femslashuary! A month in which I write femslash every day. It is like Drabblevember, I guess, except I don't want to stop at 100 words -- I want to write fics that are as long as they are, and gather the courage to attempt to even continue them further the next day if it seems called for. ?!

I made a starter spreadsheet of some pairings I feel like I might want to write! (grey means "actually probably not but they're my favs so I feel bad leaving them off this list"; blue is "het pairings made better through the magic of genderswap"; *s indicate I may or may not wish to involve these pairings in larger configurations involving dudes and their penises)

You are invited to look at it, and if you have any shower me with suggestions or prompts or feelings explosions with me to aid me on my quest!

Also to write (or fanart?) your own month of femslorsh, if you want!

Are we gonna do this thing? Possibly perhaps we are! Pom poms! Go team! Et cetera!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S. IDK if I will post said fic to here, to reflect its mutable exercise-ish nature, or on AO3, to be all shiny and stuff. It is... a mystery. Huh. Sorry.
