the long chain that connects me to you :: step eleven: trundle forwardCollapse )
er...well crap. I seriously didn't mean to die for quite so long, I'd completely lost track of things with the way Life kept interrupting and preventing me from getting any serious writing done. On the up side, I do have the next fic in The Long Chain cycle completed and the two after that are both about half done as well. Unfortunately, I've been having a hell of a time finishing things lately.

So I'm thinking I'll post the next fic tomorrow and then ... bang my head against the wall of my own writer's block and see if I can't make some progress there. Swear to god, sex scenes are becoming the bane of my existence. -_____-

Rating: PG-13
Warnings: AU, het, Jaejoong het
Word Count: 8302
Summary: Junsu can't help but worry, watching Jaejoong as he does. But finding an answer to the problem isn't as easy as he could wish.
Comments: And now that I've had to work my tail off (found out some tragic stuff a couple hours after I made my last post, it really impacted everything) and am now catching a break.... Something I wrote a long time ago! Well, maybe not that long, but long enough. But it was for a contest and then results took awhile to be announced and then Life in general, so.... Whatever. It's here now. It's also a bit ... different. Well, the point of the contest was to write something with a twist, after all. And no, the fact that Jae is sleeping with women in this fic is not the twist. XD

I've left a couple of words untranslated from Chinese, for specific reasons. You should be able to figure out the general meaning from context, though.

Oh what a comedy of errors Fate does make of a man's lifeCollapse )

Tags:

No I have not actually died.

I have been a bit on the busy side and suffering huge writer's blocks on top of that, though. But now that the one contest is over, I'll have something to post here again ... if not tonight, then in the next couple of days. No word yet on when the next installment of the Long Chain Cycle will be along, but I'll do what I can between bouts of taking care of Yujji.

Band/Pairing: DBSK, w-inds, alicenine., LM.C. - implied RyuichixKeita, past AijixChangmin, implied ToraxHiroto
30emotions Prompt: #30: Wrath
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: injudicous flailing of the angst mallet?
Word Count: 4314
Summary: When a private affair becomes semi-public, everything changes. But what do you do when they're overreacting to something that's already dead and gone?
Rewind: Long Chain - Fanboy - Encounter in Kyoto - Returning - Horizon - Grey Sky Morning - Rebound
Comments: Okay, as I noted yesterday, Sadame no Ito (which is basically a subseries of the cycle) means I'm reaching the end of this run. But before anyone starts mourning, SnI is several fics long, so it's not like this story is going to end tomorrow or anything like that. XD

And yes, I'm using Japanese to title a fic about Koreans. Sadame no ito translates as "thread(s) of fate" (for those not familiar with Japanese, the number of a noun is determined by context; in a noun-phrase like this, there is no context, so it's both singular and plural at the same time). Why not just use English? Firstly, to retain that number ambiguity - both apply. Secondly, it is shamelessly lifted from a Kagrra, song that is quite fitting to the set.

Also, while any fanfic is going to be a little AU, with this set, the split from reality becomes more pronounced. Just to say.

Warnings: light shounen-ai
Word Count: 390
Summary: Some things simply aren't meant to be.
Rewind: Long Chain - Fanboy - Encounter in Kyoto - Returning - Horizon
Comments: On my own machine again, which means I should actually be able to post more regularly for awhile. But not too often or I'm going to catch up with myself. XD Which is only bad because it takes me so long to write anything. That said, this is fic #16 of 30 and I'm working on fic #22 of 30, so....

But enough rambling out of me! Onwards with the fic, ne

Band/Pairing: DBSK, w-inds.
30emotions Prompt: #12: Excitement
Rating: PG
Warnings: n/a
Word Count: 1822
Summary: It was real. A real letter with a real ticket. And a real chance to meet the real people behind the music he loved.
Rewind: Long Chain - Fanboy
Comments: Did I say I'd be posting more regularly? Whoops. Though in my defense, my own computer's ethernet card up and died in the middle of me trying to get her online the other day when I'd intended to post this and it's taken a couple days for me to get everything settled so I could post with my roommate's laptop.

I know people want the pr0ns and these have been low-rating fics so far, but a couple more comments here and there would help me feel like I'm not tossing this stuff into the ether. Yes, these fics are gen, but hell, some of these prompts really don't lend themselves to smut. And, you know, it's called The Long Chain Cycle for a reason. ;) There will be higher ratings eventually, I swear! XD

And now that I've been completely out of character for a paragraph ... on with the fic~!

30emotions Prompt: #02: Anxiety
Rating: PG
Warnings: n/a
Word Count: 788
Summary: All he wanted was some peace and quiet so he could study. Was that really so much to ask?
Rewind: Long Chain
Comments: Er, oops. Didn't actually mean to go most of a month without posting, just ... a convergence of the holidays and Things. At least the holidays are over now, so maybe I can get back into the habit of posting things? Can try, anyway.

A quick note on timing: The first fic was set ... some months into the future, though I'm not exactly sure how many. This fic is set ... sometime back in mid to early 2006. I think. Maybe a little earlier. Maybe not. Exact timing for most of these fics is rather fuzzy in my head, so....

Summary: They had a rare gift of freedom and Changmin fully intended to take complete, perhaps even ruthless advantage of that.
Comments: Oh loook, I CAN actually write smut. Imagine that! Written for my poor kitsune who is again feeling under the weather. *pets her*

When management says 'go', no one questions, they just scatter, before someone can change their minds.Collapse )

Summary: When you live with four other people, secrets just don't keep very well.
Comments: So, um, it's kind of been a bit of a long day? But hey, we're back to offering slashy goodness ... and will be for the next several fics. XD

We know you're hiding *something* from us....Collapse )

warnings: sex talk, swearing
disclaimer: This is a work of fiction, names of real people are being used without permission in a fictious setting.
summary: Now that Changmin is home, he still has to face the music. But what do you do when semi-anonymous becomes not-so-anonymous?
rewind: Feast of the Senses | Proposal
notes: Um, I've actually had this written for awhile now, but then Shit happened and I'd gotten all distracted with my 30emotions claim. Which is still eating up most of my spare writing time, so.... Bear with me? And hey, I'm making two fic posts in one day, so.... ;)

[fic; 30emo] Passive Aggressive

30emotions Prompt: #03: Apathy
Rating: R
Warnings: n/a
Word Count: 287
Summary: A brilliant flash that slowly fades away into grey.
Comments: For those familiar with the Forbidden Desires series (that I'll post more of ... later today maybe?), THIS ISN'T PART OF THAT. It could be/could have been, it's an option, but one I have no intention of taking, so.... This is how that story won't go? XD It just worked too well for the prompt.

couldn't you at least try?Collapse )

30emotions Prompt: #26: Restlessness
Rating: R
Warnings: discussion of rope bondage
Word Count: 520
Summary: He'd just wanted to learn, what was so wrong with that?
Comments: Yet again, a fic that bears no relation to any previous writings - a lot of my 30emotions fics are like that, really, only bound together because they're written for the comm. But this time we set aside the girls again for a little while and get back to some guyxguy love. XD The girls aren't gone forever! Just ... for the moment. XD

sometimes it's a sharp curve....Collapse )

warnings: AU, het
disclaimer: Not mine, no profits being made
summary: She was beautiful to him, he didn't understand....
notes: This fic bears no relation to any of my previous works. Honestly, by using 'Jiyeon', it could be anyone or even an OC, but it was SooYoung's image I had up and in my mind when I was writing this, so....

genre: drama
pairings: n/a - Changmin-centric
warnings: n/a
disclaimer: Not mine, no profits being made
summary: They said Sapporo was always a good idea, especially at this time of year.
notes: So ... I claimed Changmin over at 30emotions ... meaning there will eventually be 30 Min-centric fics here. I might have been a little crazy when I signed up for this, but hell, I've already got a stash of them (that I will be parcelling out semi-slowly because I can).

[fic] Feast of the Senses [5/5]

title: Feast of the Senses

warnings: RPS, BDSM, dubious consent
disclaimer: This is a work of fiction, names of real people are being used without permission in a fictious setting.
summary: Sometimes guys just want to play.
rewind: Chapter 1 | Chapter 2 | Chapter 3 | Chapter 4
notes: Last chapter! Which means I'm not only out of things to say but also that I have no idea when the next bit of fic will come out of me. Also, if you didn't catch Worth Fighting For, now would be a good time, since that sidebar follows Jaejoong into the shower.

And now the obligatory note on language usage. Most of the dialouge in the fic should be assumed to be Japanese unless it says otherwise. Hence the use of Japanese honorifics throughout. As with Yujji, the use of 'ie' is not intended as an honorific.
