I was just browsing my WIP folder when I discovered this fic that I had apparently finished but had never posted:

Red Ink (1385 words) by Ruuger
Fandom: Castle, The Mentalist
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Patrick Jane & Richard Castle
Characters: Patrick Jane, Kimball Cho, Richard Castle, Kate Beckett
Summary: "To Castle's disappointment, the crime scene turned out to be just another boring alleyway in an equally boring industrial district. He'd opted to skip the premiere for the new James Bond movie because of the promise of a gruesomely mutilated dead body, but he was already beginning to regret his choice."

Buffy: Try it!
Oz: (confused) Try what?
She realizes she's made a mistake and lets go of his neck.
Buffy: Uh... (exhales) I-I'm sorry.
Oz: Still not clear what I'm supposed to try.
Buffy: Nothing. God, I'm... sorry, I...
She steps away from him, looks both ways down the hall and quickly heads off in the direction she was going. Oz moves away from the wall and shudders.
Oz: That is a tense person.

2) I ran across this presentation on fanfic reading and wanted to share the following graphic for discussion: Read more... )

3) On Wait Wait Don't Tell Me a panelist joked that a better defense than a wall would be to send all the country's unvaccinated kids to the border. "We already have the cages, too." (Yes, we've had a measles outbreak locally.)

4) Does anyone reading this use Reddit? What fandom related groups would you recommend?

5) I was a Monkees fan many years ago (went to cons, the whole deal) so it was sad (though not unexpected) news that Peter Tork died. Here was my favorite song of theirs from their last album together, released in 2018: Read more... )

For Chocolate Box this year, I got a chance to write a whole new fandom (or two):

1 Out of 8 Ministers (804 words) by Ruuger
Fandom: The Thick of It (TV), QI (TV) RPF
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Nicola Murray/Malcolm Tucker
Summary: Nicola ends up as a guest panelist on QI. It goes about as well as you'd expect.

(this is the first time ever I had to think seriously which rating to choose because I wasn't sure how many fucks do you need to upgrade the rating from Teen to Mature)

Also, I finally had the permission to post online the tsory that I wrote for the Hydrid zine last year:

Same Old, Same Old (1516 words) by Ruuger
Fandom: Doctor Who (2005)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Twelfth Doctor/Clara Oswin Oswald
Additional Tags: Hurt/Comfort, Post-Episode: s09e02 The Witch's Familiar, Season/Series 09
Summary: A bit of shameless h/c set right after "Witch's Familiar" ends.

ANGEL: You know, I'm starting to get the big picture here. You guys proxy for big daddy demon, he imbues you with his life force or whatever it is you're implanting in these women.
JASON: He has trouble finding his own dates. We just help him out a little, that's all.
WILSON: Shut up, Jason.
ANGEL: And you get what in return, fame, money, success? That's it, isn't it? How else would losers like you get ahead? I mean, you'd have to become procreative surrogates for a vile demonic entity.
JASON: Well, mostly, I do it for the sex.
WILSON: Welcome to Los Angeles. There are worse things to be in business with.

What did you just finish reading?
Artemis by Andy Weir. It's been a while since I've given a book just one star on Goodreads. I did consider at one point giving it two stars because there were some worldbuilding that I liked, but then I had to read about 50 pages more of the main character welding things. I'm a huge fan of the Arthur C Clarke school of too-many-details, but even I have my limits.

The book was also burdened with a female lead clearly written by a man who had never actually spoken to a 20-something woman. There is a scene where she dresses up in a slutty outfit (FOR NO SENSIBLE REASON!) and is surprised by how hot she looks! But the worst thing about her was that she sounded like she was narrating her life to someone, which worked with The Martian but did not work here because there was no-one to narrate to.

Also, until now I have never understood people who complain about diversity for the sake of diversity, but I think this book actually does that. It's like someone had told Weir that his book wasn't diverse enough, so he rolled a dice and randomly assigned a minority element to every character. So we have a muslim woman who explains to the reader what a headscarf is and gay man who keeps constantly reminding everyone that he is gay -- their minority status at the same time both something that's constantly referenced as a defining element of their identity, but at the same time you could leave it out without changing the character or the story.

What are you reading now?
Planetfall by Emma Newton. I'm about halfway through it and I have no idea what's going on, but I'm really enjoying it nevertheless. It's just so well written, especially compared to Artemis. They're both scifi books written in first person with a female lead and with a diverse cast, but where Artemis was clumsily written and focused on its own greatness, Planetfall just works.

What will you read next?

The latest Cormoran Strike novel, because I need to return it to the library in about a week.
