I am not writing. Well, Brian is still producing stories, but they are mostly useless Skyfall/Sherlock crossovers that will never get written because I am not competent to write in either fandom.

I am reading, however. Lots. After my Avengers orgy of the summer and fall, I tumbled into a similarly ravenous reading of 007/Q and Sherlock. It was a very bad thing that I figured out how to sort by kudos on AO3. A very bad thing.

I feel a bit adrift in the virtual world right now, since my ranging afield from Stargate has me without clear co-conspirators. [personal profile] zats_clear hasn't even SEEN Skyfall. The Spammers all have tangental interest in all three fandoms, but they mostly do the Supernatural gig.

If you are looking for some good reading in 007/Q with a health side of 007&006 bromance, I recommend the writing duo of Kryptaria and Bootsnblossoms - Krpytaria on AO3. I previously rec'd Ordinary Numbers, which is still my favorite. I also rec Mercenary (Q-as-field-agent helps 006 bring a rehabilitated oo7 back into the fold), Bound (shibari and knife play, totally PWP, but scorching hot), and it looks like In Name Only (consensual slavery AU based on a book series called The Marketplace) will be a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to a fic they've been chatting up on Tumblr - cover art suggests Q works for Stark Industries. :D They post WIP, which make me twitch a little, but they don't seem to start posting until the story is entirely in beta. (I actually suspect that posting in chapters is in part a way gaming AO3 to boost hits and kudos, but that's probably just me being annoyed at my twitchiness waiting for the chapters to post each day.) Kryptaria has also posted some fun Sherlock stuff, but it looks like she may have left that fandom behind. Looks like there's at least one abandonded WIP there.

I do think that my SAD tends to make me a passive consumer rather than an active producer. And I think it was a bad winter for SAD, because not only did I not write, but I quit yoga, too.

It is possible that part of my block is coming from the original fic, which I haven't touched since NaNo finished. It just doesn't interest me. Brain doesn't spontaneously write it for fun. *sigh* I feel like I should put the effort into trying to finish it, and that may be preventing me from wanting to step out into something totally fun, if ridiculous, like Bondlock. I have actively been thinking about filing the serial numbers off Local Angel. I wrote it as a Stargate AU, but it is so far to the left, I could easily tweak some ideas and turn it into something original. I don't know. I'm not too unhappy where I am now, so I will probably toodle along some more and we'll see what we see.

ETA: Those people reading this before I edit it, I AM NOT DRUNK. Both children are chattering in my ear, and apparently it generated a variety of odd typos and misspellings.

I am right there with you in my writing drought. I hate this.

Maybe summer will be better.

We haven't forgotten how, right? RIGHT????

Blergh. I am the most passive of passive consumers--not even getting my recs posted. (Sooooooo far behind on coding.) I'm reading Teen Wolf, which almost no one I know is in, and Suits, which exactly no one I know is in. (And I haven't seen Skyfall. :-/)

If you WANT to be writing, editing a fanwork to original would be a good way to get going. But if you don't actually care, why not wait until the muse strikes? Sometimes it's just not there, but comes in cycles.

Why AREN'T you drunk?! :D

With a morning convo like that, no one would blame you for hauling out the alcohol!

Sherlock = A+

I just can't stand Tumblr as a platform. You really can't develop relationships the same way. I'll have to go check up on Copperbadge, though--thanks for the tip!
