Permission to translate fics

Since I'm no longer on LJ much, and rarely check messages anymore, I wanted to put this notice here. I'm getting a lot of translation requests, and sometimes, unfortunately, I can be very late in responding because I'm not around much anymore. So I wanted to say this to anyone who's interested in making a translation of any of my fics.

Thank you for your interest, I'm thrilled you liked the story, and please translate away.

The only thing I insist upon is that you include the link to the original text in your translation wherever you post.
Sending me a link with your translation would be nice, too ;)



I'm not around here anymore, but this one deserved an entry, if only for the sake of closure. The story I have started back in 2009 is now COMPLETE. I can hardly believe it myself. But they made it and I made it. We all made it. Now it just needs to sink in. ;)

So this has been happening...

I have no explanation, either, except for being under an inordinate amount of stress lately, and I guess I missed them?

That old song again

I’ve seen several discussions on the nature of concrit in fandom and, to be honest, I mostly rolled my eyes and thought ‘oh my God, here we go again.’ Then things kept piling up. I saw a post on tumblr where a girl swears she’d punch the next person who dares to say that Arthur and Merlin are maybe more than just friends. To me, it translates pretty much into her wanting to take on the entire fandom, but I don’t know, maybe she’s in such a great physical shape, she’d actually pull that off. Then I saw a comment on one of the Russian boards about my old Star Trek story, and it turns out I spat that reader in the face with it, because Roddenberry created his universe as a happy-go-lucky utopia where the only bad guys were aliens (the bad kind, I’m guessing), and how dare I show a world ‘more like ours’ where ugly is mixed with the pretty. Realism is bad taste these days, huh?

Anyway, it all got me thinking, a bit nostalgically perhaps. It’s funny. I wrote every kind of story out there. Short, long, bad, good, really good, pretty bad, dark, twisted, fluffy, saccharine, angsty, romantic… The list goes on. I’ve received every kind of comment an author can get, from delighted flailing to long detailed posts to flames and insults. And entitled jerks, of course, wouldn’t be a fandom without them.

It’s funny, but my conclusions are actually the same as they were when I was a naïve newbie who went around like ‘what is fanfic?’ You can always tell if the person who leaves a comment has ever written or otherwise created anything in their entire life. Always.Read more...Collapse )

When Lord Marko holds an auction to give away his 14-year-old stepson's hand in marriage, Erik sees his chance and takes it.

Fanart for Time Forward

'Present Tense' by ~argen7 on deviantART

I'm actually speechless. This is one of the most beautiful pieces of artwork I've ever seen, and I almost can't believe a fic of mine has inspired this. Stunning.

Thank you so much, raideen9!!!
Here's my endless admiration. ♥♥♥

Too good not to share

Summary: While still at uni, Arthur Pendragon meets two people who become his best friends. He falls in love with one of them... but marries the other. This isn't his story to tell; it's Merlin's. And Merlin will always remember that he met Arthur first.

I can't be grateful enough for this. It's the first time someone made a podfic of a fic of mine, and I'm reeling, and so happy, and wanted to share, especially as I'm a picky listener and SweetAndSharp is amazing. ♥

ST: Into Darkness Thoughts

God, I haven't posted in forever. Still alive then, LJ? Anyway, saw the new movie. Some spoilery thoughts and unpopular opinions. You know me. ;)

How have you been, those of you still checking out this journal? Missed you lot. *hugs*

regarding translation

To the person who asked about a Chinese translation of Same River Twice. Unfortunately, I can't reply to your message because you seem to have disabled personal messages on your journal. In any case, if you're reading this, sure thing, you have my permission, and if you send me the link when it's done, I'll post it on the fic page. Thanks!



So, thanks to fuzzytomato02, I learned that my twitter account has been hacked. I deactivated it. Sorry for the spam you guys. I guess if I ever set up another account, I'll just have to find you all again.

ETA. So the hacker reactivated my account. I deactivated it again, but in case it didn't work or whatever (does anyone know how to delete it?) please be aware that I'm not the person tweeting from it. Unfollow it.

Look, I wrote fic! Kinda

Okay, so this was mine.

/Why do I always suck at writing summaries? It's like a curse or something...

Happy New Year? :)

I feel strange. I've been rereading this post and I thought that I had no idea, couldn't predict how 2012 would turn out. None of us could, but still, in the grander scheme of things, I could never in my life have expected half of what had happened. None of them were pleasant surprises, either.

Creatively speaking, I've been all over the place, and not in a good way, although some things weren't so bad. I wrote 213071 words of fic this year: 172985 for Merlin and 40086 for XMFC, my unexpected new love. That's not counting kink meme fills that will forever remain anonymous. I've been a bad girl again.
