This was supposed ot be comment length on LJ and it....Didn't make the cut. I'm gonna get August to beta the thing, then post it to AO3 and, until then, try and tell myself I do not need to start a series of fics in which Bucky and stee explore kink and trauma and sex and identity.

I so don't need to do that, nope.

Bucky knows Steve is doing this because he asked, because he demonstrated enough sense of feels to know what he wants and go after it. When he asked him to do it, Steve looked so surprised, then pleased and he agreed.

Bucky is also aware that Steve is apprehensive as hell about doing this. Especially after having a few days to think about it.

"Are you sure," he asks for the third time in as many days. "We don't have to do this."

"I'm sure," Bucky promises, pressing a kiss to Steve's mouth. "Please?"

Steve only nods, reaching out and brushing his fingers against Bucky's cheek. He leans into it, just as he always does, just as he had been trained and yet so very against the ingrained programming that lays within him.

"One More Day" (AO3 | DW)
Center Stage, PG-13, 4890 words, Eva/Juliette, for [community profile] femslashex, October 2014
Eva's come to terms with why she left ABA for a guest stint in London. Now she needs Juliette to understand why she came back.

Shoutout to Netflix for having Center Stage so I could watch a million times in July/August/September...and then getting rid of it just in time for me not to do a final check for my fic in October. Augh.

Anyway, I really liked doing [community profile] femslashex! It's like Yuletide in that I get that smaller-fandom itch scratched a little, but the timing's better AND it's guaranteed to have its focus on ladies (or non-binary folks, but I haven't seen any yet). And then, on top of having fun writing, I actually got both a gift and a treat!

Gift: Masters of Sex episode tag centered around Lillian and Virginia. I can tell my gifter read the rambling I put down in my letter and possibly understood it/me better than I do because this is exactly what I wanted to read for them: their dynamic and acknowledging the tragic elements without dwelling on them. It's a comfort blanket of a story without hiding the tough spots, and I adore it.

Treat: Angel Haze/Ireland Baldwin story using Angel Haze's actual Instagrams as story structure, and the prose makes it read like the story equivalent of an Instagram picture with a filter on it. How delightful is that? I clapped my hands with delight while reading it.

I'm going to go through more of the archive later, but if anyone has any recs, I totally want them! I'll be updating Twitter/Pinboard with my own as I go through.

Glee!

Just finished A Death at the Dionysus Club by Melissa Scott and Amy Griswold -- the second Lynes/Mathey book, magic and metaphysics and m/m romance -- and it made me SO happy. If I weren't posting via small touchscreen I would be overflowing with gleeful words. I so hope there is Yuletide fic, because omg, so delicious.

This is spillover from the March 17, 2014 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from LJ user Kestrels_nest. It fills the "slavefic" square in my 1-3-13 card in the Trope_bingo fest.  It has been sponsored by [personal profile] dialecticdreamer, who is working on some pretty awesome stuff featuring the Puppetmaster and his Marionettes.  This poem belongs to the series Polychrome Heroics.
