Fic or Die 2015: A Master List

This year's Fic or Die challenge is now officially closed, and it has been a roaring success!

Thank you all so much for indulging me and playing along, embracing the pressure and fulfilling the demands of the fic-hungry goats. Some of you finished years-old stuff, some of you wrote brand-new things, some of you did both. Your administrators are most satisfied indeed!



We had 23 submissions from 17 fandoms, with a total wordcount of approximately ~34,000 words.

IKR?


So give yourselves a big pat on the back, because you have all been phenomenal! A big thank you also to those who did not pledge to write, but contributed prompts, beta services, or general cheerleading.

Without further ado, here's the master list of contributions:

Spartacus Rewatch Thoughts & Feels: War of the Damned (full season)

I missed doing a detailed season 3 feels post on time because I had to go to a Big Gay Wedding over the weekend, which incidentally (apart from gay boys) featured actual goat farms and mines (the weekend, not the wedding, although the latter might have been interesting with goats), so it was all very a propos.

GOATS and feels )

This is the place to share prompts and hopefully inspire your fellow participants! Prompting is open to anyone, even if you won't actually be writing for Fic or Die.

Poll: Fic or Die 2015! (spoiler: the answer is YES.)

It has come to my attention that certain individuals among you are:

1) hoarding finished or near-finished fic on your sneaky hard drives; or
2) dithering about, occasionally poking at, and/or furiously scribbling unfinished fic; or
3) pondering fic in your enormous sparkly brains without yet having set pen to paper or finger to keyboard about said undertaking; or
4) in dire need of being prompted into engaging in activities 1-3.

YOU CAN TRY TO RUN BUT THERE IS NO ESCAPE!


I WILL FIND YOU AND PUT A PLOTBUNNY CHICKEN ON YOUR HEAD.


Now that I've got your horrified attention, I am sure you all remember the last time we had a Fic Or Die challenge (that I bullied [info]spaghettitoes into organising, whereupon she, in turn, bullied everybody into writing - which, incidentally, is exactly how I want things to go when I rule the world!).

My pressing question now is this:

Poll #7662 Fic or Die - Yes Or Yes?
Open to: All, results viewable to: All

Would you be interested in (and more importantly, willing to commit to) Fic Or Die 2015?

Fic: Unravelled (Spartacus - Agron/Nasir; NC-17)

I was working on something else, but felt somewhat angsted out for the moment, so I decided to hone my PWP skills instead, lol. Brought to you by my need for more top!Nasir, about 11 bottles of cider, and a lot of typing with my eyes closed. Smut is hard work, yo.

Fandom/Characters: Spartacus; Nasir/Agron (Nasir POV)
Word Count: 5800
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Total PWP.
Summary: Nasir puts the skills he acquired as a body slave to good use. Agron benefits. Several times.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Spartacus. Clearly I’ve made the wrong life choices.
A/N: No redeeming qualities whatsoever, I just wanted Nasir to shag Agron into whimpering boneless pieces. Set during ep 209, Monsters, after the mock fights and before the Roman attack on the temple. Thanks to [info]alsha for beta-ing!

Spartacus Rewatch Thoughts & Feels: Vengeance (episodes 6-10)

Onwards with the random! I'm not sure I can remember exactly which bits go in which episode, so I'll just go by characters and storylines again.

Spoilers )

Oct. 30th, 2015

Spartacus Rewatch Thoughts & Feels: Vengeance (episodes 1-5)

First off, I am so happy the prequel exists, because it really helps with the Andy-Liam transition to have a buffer between s1 and s2.

Secondly, I still kind of almost wish that they'd had the time and option to tell the story in a way that involved the original Spartacus actually dying and another guy taking over, in an "it's the idea of the man that matters, not the man himself" kind of way. I know that for various reasons it would never have worked; I just love that kind of story (hello, Robin of Sherwood!).

I'm going to ramble by episode this time:

Spartacus Rewatch Thoughts & Feels: Gods of the Arena

(ahahahaha I am behind on these ALREADY because apparently [info]lilithilien and I have no lives and are spending two days max per season.)

Quick thoughts & feels spew on GotA in no particular order:

Spartacus Rewatch Thoughts & Feels: Blood and Sand

The lovely [info]lilithilien and I have embarked upon yet another Spartacus marathon. Her second one, and my... IDEK, between fourth and, for some episodes, sixth, I guess (which sounds really sad, considering the first time I watched it was... 4 months ago? At most? lol).

Series 1 is probably the one I've watched the least often - once on my own, once with [info]alsha, once with commentaries. Not because I love it any less - on the contrary, it's fucking masterful - just because I'm more drawn to the rebellion era, and a lot of my favourite character arcs (Ilithyia, Spartacus, Oenomaus, Mira, Agron, Crixus, Naevia, to name just a few) don't unfold until later. Also, the very concept of slavery always squicks and appals me to a monumental degree, to the point where I'm not even very intrigued by s1 alt-canon slavery-based fic. It's cool that it's out there and I get that there's a lot to explore in it, but it's just not something I'm drawn to much. (Exceptions apply. I will give any Barca/Pietros a go, always. My poor doomed pigeon aficionado OTP :CCC)

Anyway, rewatch! I thought I might like to ramble here about random thoughts and feelings while watching, because I think my Twitter followers are probably thoroughly tired of my Sparty marathon spam, and this is a little more permanent :)

Here there be fangirling, and also spoilers )
