white-aster said: Optimus Prime/Megatron - High school AU! :D

ladykatana4544:

white-aster Apologies your prompt took a little longer than expected. And somehow I read high school au as college au, but rewrote the response into a high school au piece. Also slightly longer than three sentences. :P

Pairing: Megatron/Optimus Prime

Content Warning: Plotting shenanigans that Optimus tries to curb in order to prevent mental scarring. Also humanized Transformers because that’s where my brain went.

Wooooot!  :D   \o/  Oh, Optimus, as if Megatron needs any excuses to plot shenanigans.  And funny how teenager!Starscream is pretty much…Starscream!  :D   Thank you!  :D

Toronto’s Garrison Bespoke has created a discreet and comfortable bullet-proof suit for clients who work in dangerous environments. The entire custom-made suit uses nanotechnology to act as a shield, and it’s 50% lighter than Kevlar.

And if you have to ask how much it costs, you can’t afford it.

….And suddenly I have an Arthur and Eames again.
Eames:  *looks at the boarding pass that just appeared in his inbox*  …why am I going to Canada again?
Arthur:  Reasons.

"We don’t like pictures like this. It is not good to deduce an entire country to the image of a person reaching out for food. It is not good for people to see us like this, and it is not good for us to see ourselves like this. This gives us no dignity. We don’t want to be shown as a country of people waiting for someone to bring us food. Congo has an incredible amount of farmland. An incredible amount of resources. Yes, we have a lot of problems. But food is not what we are reaching for. We need investment. We need the means to develop ourselves."

What are your five favourite fics that you’ve written?

Why?

Include links so people can read them.

Reblog with your answers or make a new post, whatever floats your boat.

Writers are encouraged and expected to be self effacing and down on their work, and self-reccing is something people tend to side-eye. Which is pretty unhelpful - it encourages us to downplay the things that make us smile, and can contribute to some shitty thought processes. Plus, it means we don’t end up sharing something that could make someone else smile. Some of the best fics I’ve read recently have been new links to old work that I’ve missed or read a while back and forgotten to return to. It’s great to rediscover stories, and it’s good to celebrate the things that make us happy. So meme?

Awesome!  Oh jeez.  Only five?  Because I kind of love a lot of my fics, ngl.  I go back and read them when I want something fun and juuust the right tone….  Um.  ’kay….

There are several fics that I love but not quite as they are written right now.  Morale Officer, Prima’s Blessing, and In Service are three of those.  Once they are done they will be so very, very awesome, but I can’t say that they’re favorites right NOW because they’re not done yet and what I have isn’t self-contained.  Even PB, which is almost 30k words, is not even really 1/3 of what I have in mind for it.

So!  That said, of the finished things, my favorites are:

A Day in the Life of Dr. Rafael Esquivel, Ph.D.  - Transformers - Soundwave needs a favor from grown!Raf.  This leapt fully-formed into my head and I don’t even know.  I love it because it’s self-contained, long, meaty, reasonably complex, and it has the themes of “everyone work together” that I love.  <3  

Dawning: Horizon - Dawning’s really an unfinished series, but this is self-contained enough, I think.  Seaspray and Thundercracker in Bayverse.  Again with the folks working together!  And enemies slowly becoming friends.  And seeker/aquatic cross-frametype flirting.  What is NOT to love?

Synergy - aaaaah, my Sci Fi Big Bang story, the lovely FF12/Fullmetal Alchemist crossover crack that it is.  This over-40k words of me letting Kimberly be a badass and then giving him all the nice things.  My weakness for fictional sociopaths at work.  I had fun with the worldbuilding in this, and figuring out the duelling magic systems and all.  And, iirc, this is also technically the first of like three parts….  >_>

Kindred Spirits - Demon Diary (manga/manwha) - Aaand now we dive into the obscure fandoms.  Again with the long and meaty and complex-ish.  And I loved Eclipse and wanted a good backstory for him and his original-flavor Raenef.  So I wrote one.  I even snuck in one of my other favorite things:  arrogant asses underestimating someone and getting their comeuppance.

The Language of Hell - Echo Bazaar (Fallen London) - I was very proud of myself for this story.  EB has a very distinct, creepy, tongue-in-cheek  style, and honestly, I think I nailed it and also came up with a storylet plot that was interesting.  Also, iirc, this was a Yuletide exchange story that I wrote at the omglast minute.  :)

 

Ya know, I’m kinda happy knowing I’m not the only one that goes back and reads their own fics?  Hehehe!  I mean, I liked the idea in the first place, that’s why I wrote it, but no one ever talk about that.

<3

I think I started writing fic because I wanted to READ a fic about X and Y, and dangit, if you want something done right….  :P

Snowflake Moray (Echidna nebulosa)

Also known as the clouded moray, the snowflake moray is surprisingly a species of moray eel (Muraenidae) which is widespread throughout the Indo-Pacific region, from the eastern coast of Africa thorough Micronesia including the Red Sea and Hawaii. It also occurs in the eastern Central Pacific, from southern Baja California, Mexico, and from Costa Rica to northern Colombia. Like most morays, snowflake morays are carnivorous and will feed on a variety of fish and crustaceans. 

Classification

Animalia-Chordata-Actinopterygii-Anguillformes-Muraenidae-Echidna-E. nebulosa

Images: Silke Baron and Josh More

it looks surprised and delighted that its photo is being taken.

Happiest eel.

*headtilt*  It looks like a turtle’s head on a snake’s body.  A very confused but nonetheless happy turtle.
