So, I have been working hard for the moneys and haven't had much free time to myself to do anything other than come down with a  truly horrific cold and play Skyrim. I've been amusing myself by writing up some drabbles from my main playthrough: Skuld Wrymsdottir met up with Erik the Slayer (who is nice but a bit stupid) and Barbas, who is a talking dog. Together the three of them roam around Skyrim having hijinks. Right now they're solving a grisly murder although it's more Inspector Clouseau than, say, The Killing.

(Let me gush for a moment about The Killing (the second series of the Danish crime drama, not the inferior shouty American remake)- I LOVE THE KILLING. It is SO GOOD. I especially love how Sarah Lund, the main character, is a female lead who is allowed to look tired all the time and walks away in the middle of conversations that don't interest her. She is amazing. I love her).

Anyway, here are the aforementioned drabbles, reposted from my tumblr. In The Hangover, Skuld regrets interrupting a murder investigation for a drinking contest, and in Seems Legit we see that she is a terrible judge of character.

Title: Telling Tales
Spoilers: None

Summary: Varric isn't the only character with a story to tell.

I keep forgetting to do this auuuugh

Title: Mother Tongue
Spoilers: None
Warnings: None
Rating: G
Summary: Anders' relationship to language is about as complicated as his relationship to everything else. Dedicated to [ profile] zeitheist, who gave me the initial idea and encouraged the thinky thoughts.

(also an experiment to see if I could write a fic about two languages without having to conclusively state what they speak in the Anderfels)

I've been holding off on this to avoid spammage but I figure now is as good a time as any to post it: all the fic I've been doing lately! Yay!

I've been posting my shorter fic over on tumblr because I don't feel it's long enough for a proper post, so that comes first:

Hat's Entertainment (Dragon Age: isabela, Merrill and Varric shop for hats)

About Stories (Dragon Age: The life and times of Varric Tethras)

What Is This Feeling
(Dragon Age: fem!Nathaniel and fem!Anders, complicated ladyfeelings)

And secondly, livejournal fic!

Title: Queen of Air and Darkness
Spoilers: None
Warnings: Witchy business
Rating: G
Summary: Originally written for Dragon Age Ladies week on Tumblr befire it turned into Morrigan week. I can think of no lady more awesome than Flemeth, and I've been wanting to write a bit about her life and times for a while. Replaying Origins recently has helped! Title is from The Once and Future King, although Flemeth is far and away better than any of the witches in that.

Title: Buried Deep
Author: [info]thewaterbandit
Spoilers: None
Warnings: I don't know any Italian at all so Ezio's dialogue might sound kind of weird.
Rating: G
Summary: This is for that very small overlap of Assassin's Creed/Doctor Who fans in the big Venn diagram that is fandom. Basically holy crap, Ezio totally met Rory.

"Is this some kind of Templar trick?" Ezio asks, throwing the plumed Centurion's helmet aside. "Or are you a new kind of follower of Romulus, playing at soldiers?" )
giefu: (blood hate rage cuddles)
All postcards are away! Also, I have a ton left, so if anybody else feels like asking for one, don't be shy about PMing me your address and I'll get one to you ASAP.

To celebrate, a meme I've been saving!

The first five people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble/ficlet of any pairing/character of their choosing. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.

[fanfic] Endless

So in other news I keep forgetting to do this.

Title: Draw me like one of your French girls
Author: [ profile] thewaterbandit 
Spoilers: None
Warnings: Very silly
Rating: B for Bawdy
Summary: Varric and Isabela hold an impromptu art class at the Hawke Estate. Came out of a pondering of the distinction between 'nude' and 'naked' while setting my tumblr savior tags. Be sure to check the comments for some lovely art by [ profile] quinn_wolf !

"Varric. Couch." His voice was becoming increasingly strangled. "Naked."
giefu: (Dragon Age 2)
Title: How Far We've Come
Author: [ profile] thewaterbandit 
Spoilers: None really
Warnings: None
Summary: [ profile] featheredraven drew me an awesome picture of my Hudson Hawke and his lady love Merrill, and in return I offered to write her something. She requested Anders, Nathaniel and Hawke hanging out, and so here it is! (also Varric sneaked in somehow). Please be forgiving as this is the first time I've written Nathaniel Howe, and not having played Awakenings my facts on him before research were: 'he looks like Snape and sounds like Batman' and 'something something Grey Wardens'.
Augh I really need to stop forgetting to put links to my fic on here until days and days after I post it. Anyway, those of you who would be interested know anyway, but I finished that Wild West AU and put it up on the dragon_age community:

Born Unto Trouble (Dragon Age 2 Wild West AU, rated G for Goofy)

Now I'm writing another one, so I've nicknamed this AU the BUTT-verse. Yes, I am five.

I finally handed in my essays! Yay! Now I have to write my dissertation! Boo! And today I read Amazons Attack for my dissertation! Double boo. Seriously, that comic is absolutely terrible. I won't go into details but everything from the writing to the plot to the depictions of characters is just eye-gougingly bad. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. Unless, you know, you're writing about Amazons for part of your dissertation and find interesting parallels with Greek mythology's use of Amazons and stories of the Other.

Now, some big important (kind of) news! I've been invited on one of my friends' Doctor Who podcast! Every week they record a commentary, and as I have lots of Thoughts and Feelings about Doctor Who I've been invited along to share them! I'll also be (hopefully) doing another one on video games and sci fi/fantasy soon. I'm pretty excited about it, I'm a huge podcast fanatic and to actually be asked to come along and do something like this is totally awesome.

My actual thoughts on today's Who? Not going to spoil anything but I thought it was a good blend of cheesy and creepy! There were definitely moments where I laughed out loud (and wasn't supposed to) but overall it was pretty good! Better than the pirates, at least.

Title: Anders Gets Pussy

Spoilers: None really, set during Act 2

This time, the Mass Effect drabbles! I've been writing more and more fic for Mass Effect lately, and I'm really enjoying playing in this universe. I'm pretty sure, in fact, that it was the ME drabbles that won the contest for me! (This might have less to do with my talent and more to do with he contest runner's predilections, but OH WELL!)

quarian OC, 'Space' )


Garrus, Jacob and Joker brotimes, 'The Commander's not going to like this' )


Commander Shepard, 'Mask' )


Tali, Shepard. Paired prompt 'Paragon/Renegade' )

So all this month one of the forums I frequent was running a daily drabble competition. As it was only 100 words each day I contributed from time to time and now that it's ended I thought I'd share some of the ones I thought my lj buddies would like. I actually ended up winning the thing as well, so I guess that might assure you that these are all readable, at least :p

Anyway, today I'll post the Doctor Who ones and one Avatar one. I also wrote a bunch of Mass Effect drabbles, which I'll put up tomorrow to avoid spamming everyone. (and one Friendship is Magic one, which I might post anyway just for kicks)

Author: [ profile] thewaterbandit 
Character(s) or Pairing(s): The Doctor, Amy, Rory
Rating: G
Summary: [ profile] flying_girl73 asked for 'the Doctor and some of his companions (and maybe enemies) do a Secret Santa'. I'm afraid I fiddled with it a little bit because Christmas shopping has been on my mind lately! Rory, Amy and the Doctor all go about Christmas shopping in their own ways.

And oh, hey fanfic mojo! I think I may be on the way to getting you back!

Christmas was a tricky time in the TARDIS. )
giefu: (waggle waggle)
Okay! It is fairly obviously no longer my birthday so I think I'd better put something up here to move that post down a bit. Things have calmed down here now, and everything's winding up for the Christmas holidays. Also, I've been learning today about some of the history of fanfiction and basically admitted in a seminar that I write Doctor Who fic. This means that a) I was horribly embarrassed and b) I've been in a writey mood! But! I've been out of practice for so long I don't know what exactly I want to write.

So, I'm opening up the floor to requests. Give me a request for anything, fic or original, and I'll write a couple of paragraphs for you.

(The usual restrictions apply re: rating, fandom)
