... That's what you call it, right? What I mean is, my policy on people making fanfic and fanart and podfics and translations and things based on my stuff. I've had a few requests lately, and kept meaning to put up a public post about it.

Okay. General gist? Feel free to make anything you feel like based on my stuff. I'd just appreciate it if you credited the original, and gave me a heads-up if possible. And also ... this has only come up in two cases that I can think of, but make it clear that your work isn't mine? As in, that your story or art isn't 'official' in the sense of a continuation or something I had any input in. Like that? That it's inspired by but not directly connected to mine. (Podfics and translations are slightly different, there, but they shouldn't need that explanation).

Ah. I think that covers most of it. Feel free to PM me the usual way though if you're unsure.

That's fanfic, mind. For my original stuff ... Um. I'd really prefer if you asked me first? I'm a touch territorial in that regard -_-;

No idea what it's from. Just a thing that popped up for a prompt on comment_fic, for the prompt: Tread softly for you tread upon my dreams

Sleeping, Seeping

"All this," the man said softly. Kneeling in the ashes of a scorched earth. "All this, brother, just to rob me of my dreams?"

"Your dreams made you weak," the other answered. Cold and pitiless, his blank gaze falling over a shattered landscape without so much as a flicker of remorse. "There were none among us who did not see it, brother. They had slipped inside you. Poisoned you with foreign thoughts. Made you long for ..." A twist, emotion. Contempt. "For gentle things. For all their soft poisons." A lift of one lip. "You must see that. You must know what they did to you."

The kneeling figure shook his head, face twisted in a grieving mask. "You had no right," he whispered, soft and desperate. "You had no right. This was my dream, brother! They gave it to me, and it was mine. This was ... this was my dream."

His companion stared down at him. One fist knotting, a hard, cold clench of pain, as he looked down at the crumpled form beside him, and what remained of the brother he had once known. On his face, too, there was something close to grief.

"Your dreams were poison," he said, very softly, as he turned to leave. "Sooner or later, they would have killed you. They were poisonous dreams, my brother."

"... Yes," the dreamer whispered, to the fading echo of his footsteps, his hands digging softly among the ashes. "Yes, brother. But they were mine."

It is often said, you see, that the antidote to all poisons ... is a poison itself.

Yes, I'm spending a lot of time on comment_fic lately. *smiles sheepishly* I'm very flighty at the minute, and short prompts are doing me good, I think. Heh. And today, I'm too sore to be up to much. Anyway. Today's theme is 42 words, as in ficlets of that length. So far:

I've been reading a lot of fic lately, and recently I've been bouncing around various of my fandoms reading creature-fic, or fic where characters are mythical creatures like werewolves or vampires (wow, Jen) or elves or mercreatures ... lots, and all lovely. And I kinda want to try write a few, so.

If anyone wants, gimme a fandom, a character, and a type of mythical creature you'd like them to be (Fandoms that already have mythical creatures, or heros that are them ... well, I'm sure people will think of something screwy). Any of my fandoms. And I'll write you a fic (probably short, but depends) based on the prompt.

Also, if anyone knows of really cool creature-fic in any of my fandoms, I'd happily take some recs for future reading ;)

Post the first line of a story here, and I'll write the next five. No context or prompts, just a line, and if I don't twig who it is then you'll get something slightly surreal back!

Since it seems to be the thing to be doing today ... *grin* Anyone want a little comment-fic? Fandom, character/pairing and lyric/quote/prompt?

First, family fun. I had the most fabulous, rip-roaring argument with my father and sister last night. Seriously. Hair-tearing, homocide-threatening, maddeningly illogical, with the occasional smattering of violence, but not a hand lifted or a word spoken with malice. We watched '12 Angry Men', and a beautiful debate over who was the most important character bloomed out of it. *grin* Me vs my father, with my sister cutting in once in a while from the sidelines.

Who won? Well, I like to think I was Henry Fonda to my father's Lee J. Cobb, but unlike that worthy gentleman, my father has yet to admit that his argument was illogical, hairbrained, and just plain wrong. Hmpf!


Second, though. I can't write for toffee at the minute. Fic, that is. I remember asking for images, before, for me to write ficlets on. I was hoping I could do that again, or something close. Maybe music? If people could give me a link to a piece of music, and I could write them a little comment fic inspired by it? That would work.

So. Give me a piece of music, and I'll try to write you a comment-fic. *smiles* Here's hoping.

I want to write something. I haven't written anything in ages -I haven't been able-, and I can feel the itching in my fingers that tells me I need to. But my brain is so fuzzy these days ...

Anyway. I want to try something different. And I'm a pretty visual person. So. How about if someone gives me an image (a link to an image), any image, and I write something based on it? Anything at all. I just need to write.

Plus. I love finding new and cool images. Any help with that, too, would really cheer me up.

Pretty please?

My DBZ muses are suddenly up and running. Strange. They've rarely been before. But here's a kind of horrible little Vegeta fic, anyway. And my eyes are a bit scratchy, so please forgive the numerous spelling and grammatical errors found within. I'll fix them after I sleep.

Title: Stand
Rating: PG-13, maybe higher, for violence.
Characters: Goku, Vegeta. Not paired (unless you squint real hard)
Disclaimer: Who the hell owns DBZ, anyway? Not me.
Summary: Goku wants to know why Vegeta fights the way he does. So the dragon shows him.
Warnings: uh, a little savage.

Odd thing I wrote in which, through a markedly painful experience, Lestrade, Holmes and Watson reach a new understanding. Only the first chapter, because the whole thing might be quite long and take forever (optimistically speaking) to update, but hey. Here ya go. Gonna try posting at Cox & Co. too, but that may not be accepted.

Rating: Mature. Really. The victorian sensibilities disguise a lot of it, and there's nothing graphic, but this is NOT for anyone underage. 

I think this fandom is in the public domain, but i don't own anyway!
