I am finally, in the year 2016--2017, actually--going to have fic appearing in a zine! Except we're calling it a "fanbook" and/or a "Stucky anthology" nowadays, apparently.

Still! Not Without You is going to be a thing, and I will have a story (the one I refer to as "Saddest Steve/Bucky I Could Think Of" in WIP status updates) in it! There's going to be a Kickstarter to fund printing it in full color, since it involves 300 pages of fic and art--digital copies will be $5, print copies start at $25 with other extras available at higher tiers.

You can sign up here to get an email when the Kickstarter gets going, or if you're on the Tumblrs you can follow the link above to the blog and follow there!

So, FUNNY STORY, back around the same time that I started doing my weekly WIP status update posts, I also started doing What I’m Reading Wednesday posts, and then in mid-September I stopped doing the What I’m Reading posts and never started again and I am FINALLY GONNA TELL YOU WHY. AND ALSO WHAT I AM READING:

an early name used for videophones by [archiveofourown.org profile] easyforpauline.

And the thing is, I read the first three stories in the series back in September and it just BLEW MY MIND?? and I knew I HAD TO write about it in my What I’m Reading post but I just COULD NOT EVEN FIND WORDS, because it’s just–

It’s so–

It’s like hardcore kink and surrealism had a baby, I guess? It just DIVES ON IN with Bucky sleeping on a table and Steve washing his mouth out with soap and spitting on him and WELL OKAY THEN, OFF WE GO, and by the time you get to Bucky fucking an arcade game and setting Steve a kinky ingredient sex challenge it’s just like. Well, yes, of course, this is how they roll, I’M IN. 

Except, underneath the PROFOUND WEIRDNESS that is like nothing else I’ve read and the IN MEDIAS SUUUUPER HARDCORE D/S RELATIONSHIP LIKE HOLY SHIT MAN, there is so, so much love, and such a deeply intimate portrayal of a Bucky recovering along his own path, and a Steve who also has a lot of healing to do, and a love between them that makes it possible for them to be exactly this weird and brutal and just keep on going together, and it is gorgeous.

So–yeah. Ugh. It’s amazing. It’s brilliant. I know there are a million alarming tags on it–some of them gave me pause, I definitely passed it by while browsing one kink tag or another more than once–but, ugh, I am telling you, give it a whirl. It is so well done and also SO WEIRD in a way I cannot even do justice to. I NEED YOU TO READ THIS SO I CAN WAVE MY ARMS INARTICULATELY AT MORE PEOPLE ABOUT IT.

PLEASE. READ IT FOR ME. AND THEN COME YELL ABOUT IT. BECAUSE !!!!!!????!!!!!!

And now that I have FINALLY discharged my desperate need to rec this series (a fourth story came out and I read it just now, so it’s timely and everything) I will go back to updating you on a weekly basis about other stuff I read, but… I’ll do a separate post for that. This one definitely deserves it own.

Hey! There is now kinda sorta a pairing in this series! At long last!

By all means let us focus on that and not the trainwreck happening in the tags, although you should definitely also... take a look at that before you click.

Codename: Aluminum Bastard (aka broken dick epic): 696

Saddest Steve/Bucky I Could Think Of: 607, exactly 1,000 words less than last week! I am ALL ABOUT weird numerical coincidences this week, I guess?

Well. This week was… a week. Honestly I’m proud of getting any writing done at all. And I find I’m having a very hard time reconciling my firm philosophical belief that People Need Stories, always, especially in Times Like These, with actually unplugging from Current Events to do the damn writing. But. Onward!

WIPs currently active: 4. Because I finished Slavefic #4!! I suppose technically that means Slavefic #5, of which I actually have non-zero words written although I’m not sure how many I’m keeping, automatically becomes In Progress now but let me just enjoy my tidy and svelte little WIP list for a minute, okay?

Words written this week: 6,618. And I did manage to write every single day, Monday to Saturday. Including the day of and day after the election. Yay?

WIPs that got no words this week: 2, the broken dick epic & Born in the Blood - more a result of pushing to finish the slavefic and having arrived at places that require some thinking for each of those than Current Events, but… back to the salt mines tomorrow.

WIPs that did get words this week:

Slavefic #4 (the one about Steve): 5,556 and now it is done! And off to beta! And will get posted… eventually!

How the Winter Soldier Met the Hulk: 23

Saddest Steve/Bucky I Could Think Of: 1,039

First week of NaNoWriMo! Not 100% a success in terms of my, er, very high personal goals, but definitely a very good week for writing in general!

WIPs currently active: 5. Because I finished “When You Have to Go There” (http://ift.tt/2fE8iyK) and STILL haven’t started anything new, although I am starting to feel like I should. Onlly five things in progress! MADNESS.

Words written this week: 9,403, although only 7,550 in November so I am slightly behind NaNo pace. I GUESS I’D BETTER WRITE MORE NEXT WEEK. :D

WIPs that got no words this week: 0, for the fourth week in a row!!

WIPs that did get words this week:

When You Have to Go There:  3,886, done and posted!!

Codename: Aluminum Bastard (aka broken dick epic): 149

Born in the Blood: 159

Slavefic #4 (the one about Steve): 3,621, only one chapter to go, oh god, this is going to actually be finished soon????

How the Winter Soldier Met the Hulk: 399

Saddest Steve/Bucky I Could Think Of: 1,189

Because, dammit, Sam should get a turn being the one who falls apart and is comforted by his boyfriend and everyone else around them.


When You Have to Go There (16444 words) by Dira Sudis
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Captain America (Movies), Marvel Cinematic Universe
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Steve Rogers/Sam Wilson
Characters: Sam Wilson, Steve Rogers, Wanda Maximoff, T'Challa (Marvel)
Additional Tags: Hurt/Comfort, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder - PTSD, Depression, Post-Captain America: Civil War (Movie), Wakanda, Woobie Sam WIlson, Sam is not okay
Summary:

It had never crossed Sam's mind that he might end up on Wakanda's doorstep the way Steve and Natasha had ended up on his a few years back: battered and on the run, seeking refuge. Even less had he ever imagined that if he did, he would be welcomed in.

Ha! I remembered before the end of the day! Good work me!

WIPs currently active: 6. Because I finished “And Besides, It Would Still Be All Right” (http://ift.tt/2f4shRY) and for the second week in a row, didn’t start anything new. o.O

Words written this week: 6,542, not bad for a four-day writing week. (Also, wrote over 30k in October so far, so it’s my fic-writingest month so far in 2016!)

WIPs that got no words this week: 0, for the third week in a row!!

WIPs that did get words this week:

And Besides, It Would Still Be All Right: 768, done and posted!

Codename: Aluminum Bastard (aka broken dick epic): 643, including what I think is a very important turning point, but since I’ve been working on it mostly during the one-hour daily blitz of adding words to every wip, I pay attention to this story for about six minutes a day right now and it… needs some rereading to see if I did that coherently. *g* 

Born in the Blood: 460

Slavefic #4 (the one about Steve): 1,708

Post-CACW woobie!Sam/Steve: 1,260, sooooo close to being done. So close.

How the Winter Soldier Met the Hulk: 946

Saddest Steve/Bucky I Could Think Of: 757

(One of my three NaNoWriMo goals this year is to do 50k of fic in November, so… hopefully that will translate to some stuff getting finished and other things moving along at a brisk pace?? Check back next week to find out how that works out!)
