Been writing “The Heart” (sequel to “The Voice”). I’ve also gotten spectacularly side-tracked by Captain America: The Winter Soldier (and began writing some Bucky/Tony, which I’ll be doing for Marvel Bang 2014).

Also, got my first commission request ever! (♥ starkred) Just need to find time to work on it (this will also be CA:TWS inspired…).

In other news:

I’m watching a new challenge, Marvel Grab Bag, for potential prompts to fill… if I feel so inclined.

Also need to start posting my entries for H/C Bingo and Trope Bingo. (New parts for Genius, AI & Bots a-coming!)

"Secret" reviews are the best, sometimes ^^

I totally own up to all the negative the reader stated near the end: the story was rushed, many elements should have been explored - and after now having completed the second part in the series where I had the time and the patience to take my time with things and expand the verse, I feel even worse for the shortcomings of “World Acclimation”. It just reflects badly on how I usually write. (this is me, hoping that wasn’t how I usually write…)

But I’m thrilled about all the positive as well!

Tentacle Big Bang fic got finished with major birthing troubles, so to speak (no births or pregnancies in the fic, though! Just a figure of speech…) I almost abandoned this project 9k into the story, which isn’t something I often do, but I pushed it to the finish line and hopefully someone will enjoy it once it sees the light of day some time in May.

Next up (and already in the works) is the sequel of The Voice. I have two sequels planned for it and I’m adamant to get them written before moving onto the next thing.

More of the Credits series is also high on “to do” list, seeing as people are still reading it, re-reading it and generally being very supportive of the first story (In Exchange).

In non-writing news:

I didn’t get tickets to this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. (There is, of course, the re-sale, although I won’t get my hopes up. I would have loved this once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the Avengers 2 panel, which I kind of suspect might take place there… Oh well, it will come online eventually.)

In related news, I’m going to visit USA this summer, if all plans pan out. My wonderful beta of many years, Mythra, is gearing up to take care of me while I visit. (In case someone didn’t know, I’m Scandinavian - a Finn, to be exact - and I haven’t traveled a lot. Certainly not across the Atlantic. Looking forward to this trip, though, with all the expected butterflies fluttering around in my stomach!)

Do you want to do art for an apocalyptic fic?

Now’s your chance!

Just finished typing up part 2 of 2 of a sequel to “Traction”. (That’s the first thing I’ve managed to write this year, and it’s good to see I’ve still got it after a very unproductive December - with 6500 words no less :D)

I think it’s time for a break, then maybe to play some Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage (Gateway to Glimmer)… and try to plot some Case Story material because I also joined the first big bang this year:

My trip to Stockholm (in June) yielded some surprising results that I for some reason haven’t shown off before now.

The only thing missing is a Hulk, but sadly I haven’t managed to find one anywhere. :/

But yay for Iron Man and Cap!

Dropped out of Extreme Big Bang (to spare my beta readers, mostly, and to give myself more time and less stress).

Been writing sequels recently (one for “Phantom”, and currently working on a two-chapter sequel for “Traction”).

I’ve also been working on some new stuff for Genius, AI & Bots series, as well as the Turquoise series.

Will probably be working on some other sequels, too (powerful candidates at this point are the sequels to “Tight Leash and ”Broken Howl"…).

What else am I planning on the field of sequels?

And that’s just the “one shots”; there are multiple series that are waiting for continuation:

  • The first part of the Transmutation series got a warm, almost overwhelmingly positive welcome - I just need to find the time to go on with that.
  • Same could be said for a story that started as a one shot (“In Exchange”), but which is now the beginning for a Credits series in my head.
  • Turquoise is moving into fresher waters now that I’ve finished “Handling Pointy Things”.
  • Genius, AI & Bots has been doing well for itself, I just finished posting a batch of small fics (written for Trope_Bingo's Round 2).

On a slightly unrelated note, I’m wanting to write some more Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes (AEMH) fic. (Who’s stopping me? I’ve even got a series planned!)

Also, I’ve seen The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug twice by now and it’s safe to say I’m going to try and tackle my LotR stories next year, bringing the old ones back in a more polished form - and going on where I’ve left off with “The Last Journey”, if I get that far (that story is getting some minor-to-major re-writes, just saying).

So, good luck for next year!

The year 2013’s word count for posted works amounted to a mind-blowing 713 733 words!

I cannot say this enough: I love you Marvel. I love you MCU.

imageNaNoWriMo success!

I’m still writing the story, but since I hit 50k, I made sure to validate my fic in time.

The story will be part of Apocalypse Big Bang's round 2, as stated before (and will fill a square “loss of vision” on my H/C Bingo card).

(In other news, I’m considering of dropping out of EBB; I haven’t started writing yet, and while there’s still plenty of time left (like, half-a-year-much), the story hasn’t come together yet and I don’t necessarily want to put my beta(s) through too much too fast.)

If I drop out of EBB, though, that means I’ll have time to focus on some long-awaited sequels… It almost sounds like a win-win (and the story I planned for EBB is still going to happen - just, not so soon.)

So, since you apparently can’t work on two novels at once on NaNoWriMo, I switched the fic I planned on writing for this year’s round. (I haven’t started writing yet. Weekend’s here, though. Sadly, I’m working for the bigger part of it. I’m at work right now, in fact. What can I say, I have a nice job that allows me to write on the side ^^)

Prometheus" for EBB is still in a ‘plot construction’ -stage. It’s a huge plot, okay?

I wasn’t planning on joining Apocalypse Big Bang on its second round, due to EBB, but when the first writer’s check prompt hit my inbox, I crumbled in the face of a vicious plot bunny. (That is the fic I’m writing for NaNoWriMo. It will also be heavily based on my H/C Bingo card and the prompt “loss of vision”.) I have more than half of the plot ready and I’ll keep working on it tonight. I hope it’s going to be as great and angsty as it feels right now. (Who can resist hurt!Tony? No one, that’s who. And protective!team. And resourceful!JARVIS. And apocalypse in general.)
