Elspethdixon's Big Damn Fanfic List

Being an index to every piece of extant-on-the-web fic by Elspethdixon since her freshman year of college, including the clichéd badfic, the abandoned WiPs, the one that turned up on McTabby’s Summary Executions, and the one with the word “orbs” in it. From Harry Potter to Pirates of the Caribbean, and beyond. Hopefully, the quality improves as ones moves down the page.

Big Damn List )

Forward-dated to go at the top of my journal. Warnings are present in the headers on all multichapter fics. Warnings for ficlets will be provided upon request. All multichapter fics contain some degree of hurt/comfort.
Well, the first scene of one, anyway. There are about 35,000 more words where this came from, but no title.* Our working title of "Captain America & Iron Man vs. the Nazi Mummies" had to be discarded, because there are no mummies nor indeed anything remotely resembling mummies anywhere in the fic.Click for Iron Man rescuing people during the Blitz and gratuitous WWII aircraft fangirling )

*Title needed. Beta probably also needed.

So, in light of recent tumblr events, a statement:

If you want to save a copy of any of my fics to your hard drive - YES, GO AHEAD. (I have something like half a gigabyte of fanfic saved to my hard drive myself.)

If you want to print a copy of any of my fics out and keep it in a three-ring binder somewhere - YES, GO AHEAD.

If you want to lend the three-ring binder to every person in your English class/office/college dorm - YES, GO AHEAD.

If you want to turn a copy of any of my fics into an ebook and put it on your nook/kindle/iPad/etc. - YES, GO AHEAD (AO3 very conveniently lets you do this automatically)

If you want to email the ebook to all forty-three of your closest friends - YES, GO AHEAD (or just point them to AO3 and tell them to click the nice "download as epub" button themselves)

If you want to publish copies of said fic as zines and sell them for $$$? ASK FIRST.

I will probably say yes provided you're doing it as a for-cost zine instead of for a profit and aren't doing something likely to get all of us sued by Marvel/Disney, like publically listing it for sale on Amazon or Lulu, but still, please ask. If nothing else, I might have a clean, all-in-one-word-document file of the fic to make your life easier. (Also, it's usually considered polite in zine-making circles to give contributors copies of the zine)

Actually, let me mention that sued by Marvel/Disney part again. Disney is infamous for the rabid psychotic intensity with which they defend their copyrights. Listing Avengers fanfic for sale on widely-used public sites like Lulu, Createspace, Smashwords, or, god forbid, Amazon, is probably a good way to risk facing a C&D letter if the wrong team of corporate lawyers somehow notice it.

Zines have been around in fandom since long before the invention of the internet, and there's a whole culture and etiquette surrounding them, some of which is probably just us old school, pre-tumblr fans being fuddy-duddies, but some of which exists for a reason. Selling printed fic at cost and not making a profit is a fandom etiquette thing that corporate lawyers probably aren't going to distinguish from selling it to make money, so it's a good idea to try and stay under the radar. And, again, to ask the authors first, because while most of us will say yes, some fans are very, very sensitive about having complete control of their fic and will not only say no if asked, but be extremely upset if you go ahead and distribute it anyway.

(You know those artists who are so upset at having a piece of fanart reblogged on tumblr that they don't feel comfortable posting art at all anymore and delete their entire pixiv or deviant art account? That reaction is not unique to artists; some writers feel that way, as well)

ETA: And if it's co-written? (Which means pretty much all of my longer Marvel fics) Please, please ask [personal profile] seanchai as well before openly distributing any kind of printed zine. Just because my stance on fic is "Yes, go ahead, podfic it! Translate it! Save copies! Print it out and tape it to the walls of subway cars!" doesn't automatically mean that her response will be the same.
Title: Backwards and in High Heels
authors: elspethdixon & seanchai
Gift For: [profile] lupus_dragon
Rating: G to PG
Pairings/Characters: Carol, Wanda, assorted other Avengers in the background.
Labels/Warnings: All fluff, no plot.

A/N: Set at an indeterminate point in late Volume 3, post when the chaos entity possesses Wanda but pre-Red Zone.
Written for the [profile] chamberofschills prompt "Avengers; fluff; femslash Carol/Wanda: Carol hates magic, even her teammate's magic. However, even she has to admit that magic can come in handy sometimes. Real witches, magic spells, and Carol admitting her feelings for Wanda."
Summary: Carol and Wanda dance at the Avengers Halloween party. There, um, aren’t actually any witches or spells, really, but there is admitting of feelings.

(Backwards and in High Heels)
Title: Zero at the Bone
Rating: PG-13
Pairings: None (fic is either gen or pre-slash, whichever you prefer)
Warnings: None that I know of, beyond some minor violence and Rorschach's issues. And the fact that "Zero at the Bone" is a really pretentious title.
Author's note: Written for the Watchmen kink meme, for the prompt "Rorschach feeding Dan sugar cubes in a h/c situation." This is set pre-GN and pre-Roche. They're both still pretty young here, under 30.

Thank you to [personal profile] kijikun, without whose efforts Rorschach's name would have been spelled wrong about 60% of the time.

It was bitterly cold tonight, the wind off the river so far below freezing that it made his face hurt even through the mask )
Ficlet set in the Watchmen/SPN crossover verse that I still am not writing. No matter how much I long to make Hunter!Laurie my personal crossover-crack Mary Sue.

How Laurie met John Winchester )
Watchmen kink meme fic is done! And it only took me two months and twenty pages! Seriously, this fic took longer to write than our big bang.

So... anyone want to beta 8,700 words worth of almost-gen h/c to make sure Nite Owl and Rorschach aren't massively OOC and/or the fic doesn't contain any blatantly-doesn't-belong-in-1960-something anachronisms?

Our Big Bang is in under deadline, yay!* There are 10 fics in total that completed the challenge which means that discarding our fic, and at least two-three more because the law of averages makes it likely that at least one will be Ultimates and no good to me and at least one will lack a happy ending or have Steve be dead or otherwise have a squick or trigger of mine in it, that still leaves a good half dozen fics over 20,000 for me to read.

Long fic! Yay! I can't wait until July.

*And we only switched fics twice and went over the challenge requirements by a good 30,000 words. Our goal was to see if we could write a 20-25,000 standalone fic. In this, we failed. We offer as recompense 100+ pages of Tony with breasts?
For [personal profile] kijikun, with hugs to her kitty.

Title: none
Author: Elspethdixon
Fandom: 616!Marvel
Pairing: Technically canon pairings/gen. Think of it as Pepper/Strange pre-het (or Strange/Wong pre-slash. Or both)

Strange & Pepper are rescuing Wong and Tony from another dimension, which they were kidnapped to by, um, plot devices. Somehow. )

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request a drabble or a sketch of any pairing/character (from one of my usual fandoms). Original fic is also allowed--you can toss names, photos, descriptions of personalities at me--with the provision that none of the characters be from any works in progress. In return, those ten people have to post this in their journals, regardless of their ability level.

meme taken from [livejournal.com profile] ani_bester
(crossed out the orig fic one because I can't do drabbles for characters I don't know).

Usual fandoms= Avengers, Daredevil, PotC, Three Musketeers, Mag7, bookverse!Bond, DCU toonverse, Tombstone, Watchmen, Lonesome Dove: TOY, and anything else you can think of that I've written or that you know I've read.
More of the AU I'm not writing. Because it has been eating at my brain and I can't help myself. (Note: narrator's opinions vis-à-vis Mary Winchester are definitely not reflective of mine. I'ma go read Wonder Woman pr0n now to scrub the misogyny out of my brain) Also, there is reckless screwing with both SPN and Watchmen timelines.

November, 1969, a Comedian is killed in Vietnam )
I realized a couple days ago that thanks to the movie casting, the world now desperately needs a crossover fic where John Winchester runs into the Comedian in Vietnam. Possibly there is non-con or attempted non-con (or John witnesses him shooting the girl he was sleeping with). Then John kills him, because John Winchester > everyone, including the Comedian.

Long, rambly context for the AU fic I'm not going to write )

Actual fic content - i.e. scene from the crossover AU I'm not going to write )

Also, creepy "I kill little girls and feed them to my dogs" guy is totally a member of the family from Benders - he's the brother/uncle/whatever who went off to seek his fortune in the big city, and after a few months of sending money home on a regular basis, was never heard from again. They were all very sad, wondering what had happened to him - somewhere in their creepy hunting-trophy room is a picture of himself that he sent them in his last letter, posing with his dogs. There's probably no way to fit that into the AU, but I like the idea.

Because they're now available to me in a format I actually kind of like, and because anonymous trolls are awful:

Kissing scenes are maddeningly hard to write (how many ways are there to say "then A stuck his tongue in B's mouth" without sounding cliched or stupid?). I don't know how people who regularly write pwps do it without repeating themselves all over the place.
Title: A Bright, Shining Horror
Fandom: The faerie-pr0n books Merry Gentry series
Pairing: Um, the canon ones. I'm not even going to try to list them for this fandom.
Rating: PG
Summary: Post-Swallowing Darkness. The Wild Hunt may be prettier now, but they're no less monsterous.
Disclaimer: The characters and situations in this story belong to Laurell K. Hamilton who is selfish and does not want to share. No profit is being made off this fan-written work.

Merry's magic has remade us, turned what was once dark and horrible to behold into something beautiful and terrible as the dawn )

Written for [livejournal.com profile] xandervampsgirl for the [livejournal.com profile] fandomsecrets fic reccing thread. Because there were no Sholto fics.

1. I have now achieved one of my greatest fannish goals.

Alien invasion fic is now over 100,000 words long. I now have written something that's long enough for the maximum word-count category on ff.net.

It really makes me wish we didn't have Reasons for not posting the fic there, because I *so* want to have a fic in the very longest category.

2. Does anyone in Steve/Tony fandom who's going to comiccon want to meet up Friday/Saturday night?
