11. Genre – do you prefer certain genres of fic when you're writing? What kind do you tend to write most?

Well, apart from that one Musketeers PWP, and things I wrote as a teen that shall not be spoken of, everything so far seems to be gen and slice-of-life. Oh, and some comedy: I've got a Supernatural fic about preventing the breaking of a Seal that's definitely crackfic. Also under Supernatural, Once Around the Block is light comedy, I guess?

I used to have more ideas for larger, plottier things but it's been a bit hard to write these past few years. I'm going to see about increasing my medication - not a joke, I've been on antidepressants, and stable, for about four years now - and see if it helps. I was fine for a long time, but the whole unemployment thing and associated stresses is not helpful to, well, anything.

Day One

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Finally nerved myself up to do this one. These were all written/created under my old journal, before I found a link to it in a relative's computer history and went "oh, god...no" and moved them over here.

Once Around the Block
Summary: AR/AU: Castiel is a socially awkward computer programmer who is working on artificial intelligence, Dean is one of his AIs that takes on a mind of its own.

Written for the 2009 AU/Fusion Challenge over on [livejournal.com profile] deancastiel. I don't even remember where this came from, but I think I managed to take both characters, drop them into an entirely different situation, and still keep them IC. (This is something I struggle with, and betas are wonderful, beautiful people.)

Honesty
Summary: Cas has his reasons for letting Dean see what he does.

Sad little drabble based around Dean and Future!Cas' conversation in the truck during 'The End'. Future!Cas breaks my heart, he's the wreck and ruin of everything Castiel was, and I'm firmly convinced that the entire conversation in question came about because he knows that and wants to change it.

Cover graphic for [livejournal.com profile] evening_bat's ongoing AU Fullmetal Alchemist series, Courage So Rare. Does it count as a photomanip if no actual photos were manipulated? Just because I'd not done anything like this before.

I backdated this post to Jan 1, just because having the challenges out of order would bother me.

Note: I originally wrote this under my other journal, but since I'm moving all my fannish stuff over here, it makes sense to mirror it here as well. Too many RL people know about the other journal anyway.

Posted here 1/10/14 and backdated to the original publish date.

I wrote this for the 2009 AU/Fusion Challenge over on [livejournal.com profile] deancastiel, and it is ALL [livejournal.com profile] intravox's fault for showing me the prompt list.

Minor spoilers from Supernatural Seasons 4/5. It's AU, so nothing from the show really is referenced except the names of the characters.

Title: Once Around the Block
Author: [livejournal.com profile] hours_gone_by (originally published under Seryan)
Rating: PG
Genre: AU/AR (AU: Castiel is a socially awkward computer programmer who is working on artificial intelligence, Dean is one of his AI's that takes on a mind of its own.)
Word Count: 1614
Summary: Approximately 25 years in the future, a shy artificial intelligence programmer named Castiel designs an AI to run his computerized house and serve as a companion, housekeeper, and occasional sounding-board. The results aren't quite what he expects.
Author's Notes: Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] intravox for beta-ing, catching where I'd messed up 'it's' and 'its', and correcting my tenses. Of course, it's also her fault for getting me into this... Also, I may love the Impala just a little too much.

Castiel had wondered about five minutes after the AI came online if it had been a mistake. )
