i'm not gone yet because the importer queue is too deep. ahhhh i need to get rid of this account asap.
sapphire2309: (Kate)
I'm fucking off to DW. There's enough wrong with me and my brain right now that I don't need to worry about what LJ is up to on top of that. Will do one final import of my stuff here to DW, wait three days, then delete this account. Anyone who's on DW who I haven't friended yet, please leave your info in the comments.

(For anyone who's worried about me, I'm alive, I hope to continue to be alive for a while at least, my brain is shitty but I'm trying to get it back on track. For a significantly more detailed update, please friend me on DW. Sorry, but I don't trust this site anymore.)

Dear writer,

Thank you for waiting patiently while I gathered enough wits to put this together. I tend to sort my letter by character and ship. I hope that works for you c: Other letters I've written are more detailed and some of the characters and ships match - you can find last year's SSR Conf. letter here, and a letter for another fest that I signed up for with Agent Carter here.

Peggy Carter
BAMF. <3 Spy shenanigans? Beginnings of SHIELD? Early backstory, when she wasn't the confident badass we know and love? (No mention of the conspiracies surrounding her brother, please. I hate that ending storyline with a vengeance.)

Dottie Underwood
Love her to pieces <3 Backstory for her please! Her pesudo-Red Room past fascinates the hell out of me. Also post-S2 fic. Where does she go, what does she do? Does she have resources to fall back on? Old allies? Does a person like her even have allies? Does she have to learn how to survive in a world where she needs to make at least a few true friends to make it, or does she just lie her way through to the end?

Ana Jarvis
I adore this darling human being! She's such a sweetheart. She'd probably be baking for someone in distress. (Spiked with liquor, of course.) Or making garter-holsters for Peggy to match all her skirts. Or cheerfully keeping a lookout and being an excellent distraction while Peggy does some agent/spy thing. She's seriously awesome. (I probably should have requested Ana & Peggy, huh?)

Whitney Frost
Scare the crap out of me with this fabulous villain! She is truly terrifying, as she should be. What if she'd ended up with the world at her feet? What if she'd become famous for her brain before her looks? Would she ever even have chosen to go into acting?

Peggy Carter&/Dottie Underwood
Oh man, these two. Dottie kills me with her A+ flirting game and Peggy is so gloriously oblivious. That line in that episode where they're both tied up in that basement, where Dottie goes "If I get free before you, there's no telling what I'll do...". What would she have done? There was so much innuendo in that line. (Was I the only one who heard it?) If you're writing full on shipfic, I don't think these two have a "normal" relationship - they probably either meet up secretly to hatefuck from time to time, despite (or because of) their grand rivalry, or they're manipulating each other, hard, and they have ulterior motives (or at least Dottie does).

Dottie Underwood&/Whitney Frost
I honestly think anything resembling a romantic relationship between these two would be twisted and really unhealthy. I'd love if you explored the dynamics of that. A villainous team-up would be awesome too! These two together could basically be unstoppable.

As you can probably tell from the above, I adore darkfic and angst. But don't worry if you're not comfortable with those - I'm also perfectly happy with fluff (as long as it's not too sickeningly sweet)

My usual c&p general likes + dislikes:

General fic likes: ANGST. Dark!fic. Physical hurt, emotional hurt (comfort optional). Hurt character resisting comfort for reasons. Competence porn. Realistic BDSM . Intimate and/or tender moments. Vulnerability. Character(s) losing control (over emotions, preferably). Extreme loneliness (make me cry!). Prose-poetry. Light fluff.

General fic dislikes: Suicide, domesticity (babies, curtain!fic, etc.), embarrassment (I have a sizable embarrassment squick.) Please note that embarrassment is not the same as erotic humiliation (which btw is HOT.)

For this fest, I'm also going to say no character deaths, because I'm very prone to suicidality myself right now. I'd also appreciate if you could avoid dealing too heavily/deeply with any kind of depression. I usually read these kinds of fics as a sort of bandaid ripping exercise, but my brain is just way too fucked up right now.

Thank you so much! Please rest assured that I'll adore pretty much anything you come up with for these characters and ships.

Sapph.

I'll probably use most of these for poetry at my poetry tumblr, but I figure there's no harm in having the table up here C:

Paradox Irony Deus ex
Machina
Suspense
Inversion

Ekphrastic

Analogy

Flashback

Stream of
consciousness
Verse Euphemism Foreshadowing
Anthropo-
morphism
Hyperbole Allegory Tragedy

Characters are *exploding* in my brain. I'm seeing so many new moments, so many new facets, so many (LONG) stories I want to tell.

Except I HAVE NO TIME. NONE. ZERO. ZILCH.

AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH.

Title: inching closer to the scorpion's tail
Author: [livejournal.com profile] sapphire2309
Characters (Pairings): Neal Caffrey, Sara Ellis (pre- and post-N/S) (don't ask me.)
Rating: PG
Word Count: 852
Disclaimer: White Collar is Jeff Eastin's brainchild. Not mine.
Summary: Neal needs to know if this is their time, their place. If they can be us again.
Author's Note: Set post-series. Season 6 never happened here.
This is... kinda bittersweet? And maybe a bit too lovey-dovey? Honestly, it's a minor miracle I'm writing something... less angsty than my usual fare. I'll take what I can get, and I hope mods will too. The title is from Tori Amos's Sweet the Sting, which I did not listen to in the writing of this fic for fear of Neal and Sara jumping into bed, which is pushing the theme 'gen/PG schmoopyfluff' a bit too far, I think.
This was written for [livejournal.com profile] alltoseek's prompt 'sweet the sting' at [livejournal.com profile] runthecon. It's not explicitly mentioned, but it's there.

She's so beautiful, he wants to reach out and touch her. )

I've been procrastinating on filling stockings for a while. A couple of days ago, I finally got down to it.

Yesterday, my granddad died.

details you probably don't want )

The point of all this is, please track your stockings. I'm going to be slow at filling them, but I think I will fill them. If only so I can think about something other than this. Apologies in advance to everyone who didn't DNW angst.

Now debating making a complete move over.

The thing is, I'm sort of unused to Dreamwidth. I mean, I know a few comms, the interface is easy enough to figure out, but I've no idea if there's a White Collar fandom specific thing there, and all of my friends are here on LJ. It feels like moving schools, tbh. (I've done that six times in 12 years of school, so I should be used to it. Should being the operative word.)

I don't want to move, and I won't stop checking LJ, (if only because I have yet to figure out DW), but all the talk around LJ's servers shifting to Russia is not making me feel comfortable expressing myself freely. And I'm already facing that kind of an issue at college. My online presence may be negligible, but it is mine, and I deserve to feel free in my space.

I'm just so conflicted about the whole damn thing.

I know I've been babbling a lot here about my own life and not enough about White Collar (even though I've been thinking of White Collar, quite a lot), but here's one more post (hopefully one of the last) before we finally go back to our (ir)regularly scheduled programme.

everybody here has seams and scars. so what? level up )
sapphire2309: (Alex 01)
Yep, I'm alive.

Title: Watching The Waves Crashing
Characters (Pairings) Kate Moreau, Alex Hunter (background Kate/Neal).
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 523
Disclaimer: White Collar is Jeff Eastin's brainchild. Not mine.
Summary: Anyone can kinda sorta be friends, given enough alcohol. Fun and games don't hurt either.
Author's Note: This is just random floof. There's no plot here. Title's from Skies On Fire by The Green Children.
Apparently, according to my brain, Kate and Alex can only be friends when they're drunk off their asses. Okay then.
Also, I'm pretending that arcades are the same all over the world, because who has time for research, this is a kinda sorta last minute thing... don't tell anyone.
This is for [livejournal.com profile] sheenianni, for the [livejournal.com profile] wc_women_fest Holiday Exchange. I hope you like it!
Also, since it's well past midnight here, happy new year!! (Which also means this fic is late. ...it's our secret, okay? Shhhhh.)


fic! )
sapphire2309: (Kate)
And as usual, I went overboard :P But I really don't know how not to, and I'm going to stick with what feels right, because I'm tired of stuffing things away, and if I can't be at least a little more honest than I usually am on the internets, then where?

Clicky!

[Background for you if you magically got here without being linked to it - I wrote this up as part of my fandom stocking post when I asked for music recs, and then realized that it was a bit, ahem, long.]

[Oh, and yes, I have a stocking! I'll make sure to link to it when it's up :D]

Genre talk. )

This brings me to the conclusion of this long winded ramble on music I love. I hope it helped! And even if it didn't, I hope you had fun!

I haven't written too much, and I want to at least try, so:

Give me a character (no repeats, please!) and a lyric, or a few lyrics, from a song that hits you right in the feels.
