sam_storyteller: (Crossover Fic)
This is a compendium of the "Hydrocodone Midnight Theatre" posts I did while I was recovering from surgery in late November. Essentially I would sit up after my folks went to bed and write fanfic to various prompts while tripping out on my (prescribed!) painkillers.

tehnakki: I love how suggestible you are when stoned! I should have spent today preparing weird fic ideas to take advantage of you in this state.
copperbadge: I’m spending like the next four days on high doses of opiates, so you’ve got time...

You can find all the original posts plus various side discussions under this tag on tumblr.

ONE: THE LONG CON
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Summary: Pepper Potts has a secret past.
Prompt: rielrolling: Pepper is BFFs with one of Neal Caffrey’s aliases because ~art luv~ and they meet and hijinks with Extremis and theft.

Rating: G

Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Dubious consent due to sex pollen; minor mentions of daddy kink

These are quotes taken from the beta-reading of Rematch, which like its prequel Paper Chase was beta'd in Google Docs by six people at once. The commas! They suffer!

I can't edit my own damn story because every time I try to save it, one of you is already saving it and it cuts me off. )

Rating: PG-13 (language, some violence)

Warnings: Some gore.
Betas: [livejournal.com profile] hija_paloma, [livejournal.com profile] juniper200, [livejournal.com profile] tzikeh, and [livejournal.com profile] spiderine. You should see the fights we had about Oxford Commas.

These are quotes taken from the beta-reading of Paper Chase, which was beta'd very energetically in a sort of mass orgy in Google Docs. I hope you find them as amusing and instructive as I did.

You knew I was depraved and godless when we met! )

Title: It's Not The Violin
Fandom: Sherlock

Warnings: Some graphic violence. And some graphic violins.
BETA CREDIT, JESUS: [livejournal.com profile] tzikeh
Notes: Though they don't necessarily share a theme, per se, this was inspired by Could Be Dangerous, a really excellent Sherlock vid by Lee_Fragilidad.

Title: Finder's Fee
Rating: PG
Warnings: None.
Summary: Repatriating a priceless cultural artefact shouldn't involve housebreaking, handcuffs, or John Watson. But it does, and it's still the right thing to do.
Notes: After I posted my Six Things About Sherlock last week, Stranded_Pearl on LJ got an idea for a fic and pointed me to the Sherlock Holmes Kink Meme where the idea was posted. I am vastly unacquainted with kink memes, other than to be aware of their existence, but I liked the idea a lot, so away we went. This is the more polished version of the fic. There is no real kink in this other than a hinted moment with a pair of handcuffs, though.

Drabbles! )
sam_storyteller: (Default)
First Posted 5.6.2007

Also available at AO3.

These drabbles are from a meme that was posted originally on February 19th, 2006.

In the meme, I asked people to visit The Invisible Library (link now defunct) and suggest a "nonexistent book" from the records there, which I would then write an excerpt from. They're filed here in an organised fashion and will eventually be available in PDF format.

With some exceptions, these drabbles are sorted by the genre of the book they can be found in -- thus, for example, one Sherlock Holmes drabble is in with the Sandman comics while another is in with the Mystery books. The LJ Username in front of each drabble signifies the person who requested it.

Some drabbles have been tweaked slightly since their original posting. This is Part I, containing Harry Potter, Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Mystery, Horror, Literary, and Ellis Graveworthy. Part II contains Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Satire.

Warnings: Some gore in the Horror section.

The Harry Potter Series ) The Discworld Series ) Sandman and Good Omens ) Mystery and Horror Novels ) Literary Novels ) Ellis Graveworthy's Works )

On Storytelling:

Fanfiction is a way of the culture repairing the damage done in a system where contemporary myths are owned by corporations instead of owned by folk.
-- Henry Jenkins

Life is very short. We die on the march. But there is nothing outside the march so nothing can be lost to it. The missing plays of Sophocles will turn up piece by piece, or be written again in another language.
-- Tom Stoppard

Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh.
-- G. Bernard Shaw

A good story should provoke discussion, debate, argument...and the occasional bar fight.
-- J. Michael Strazynski

Here's how to become a great artist. First, get miserable. Misery drives you to become a great artist, but the art does nothing for your misery, which drives you to drugs, which makes you a lousy artist.
-- House M.D.

Humans? They're long gone. Vanished. Extinct. They only exist in stories.
-- Ferngully

Anton Chekov, who was a doctor, said, "Medicine is my wife; writing is my mistress."

Se non e vero, e ben trovato. (Even if it’s not true, it’s a good story.)
-- Italian Proverb

The recipe for becoming a good novelist is easy to give, but to carry it out presupposes qualities one is accustomed to overlook. One has only to make a hundred or so sketches for novels, none longer than two pages but of such distinctness that every word in them is necessary. One should write down anecdotes every day until one has learnt how to give them the most pregnant and effective form; one should be tireless in collecting and describing human types and characters; one should above all relate things to others and listen to others relate, keeping one's eyes and ears open for the effect produced on those present, one should travel like a landscape painter or costume designer. One should, finally, reflect on the motives of human actions, disdain no signpost for instruction about them and be a collector of these things by day and night. One should continue in this many-sided exercise for some ten years; what is then created in the workshop will be fit to go out into the world.
-- Nietzsche

The thief. Once committed beyond a certain point he should not worry himself too much. Thieving is God's message to him. Let him try and be a good thief.
-- Samuel Butler

What is written without effort is generally read without pleasure.
-- Samuel Johnson

Same story, different versions, and all are true.
-- POTC: Dead Man's Chest

I am a humble artist
moulding my earthly clod,
adding my labour to nature's,
simply assisting God.
-- Piet Hein

Every archaeologist knows in his heart why he digs. He digs, in pity and humility, that the dead may live again, that what is past may not be forever lost, that something may be salvaged from the wrack of the ages.
-- From "The Testimony of the Spade"

Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man.
-- Francis Bacon

It is better, of course, to know useless things than to know nothing.
-- Seneca epistles 88 45

When asked how she acquired her knowledge of science, Octavia Butler replied, "I read."

Imagination is more important than information.
-- Albert Einstein
