Dark Fest FAQ

This fic festival celebrates all that is dark and squirmy about all the fandoms out there. It's currently open for prompts. The best part is you don't need to provide prompts in order to write for it, and you don't need to write for it in order to provide prompts.

Last year I did a short vignette about Ephram (Defying Gravity) losing his mind along with his sobriety. I can honestly say that without the fest, I never would have even considered writing DG. So wander over and leave a prompt, or browse last year's for some inspiration.

There can never be enough dark fic.

Pairing: McKay/Sheppard
Wordcount: ~4600
Disclaimer: Seriously?
Posted at: [ profile] mckay_sheppard
Spoilers (SGA): None
Note: This follows Thanks for the Memories, an SGA/QAF crossover I did quite some time ago. There are several mentions of the events of that story in this one, and some sly references to QAF. Ideally, TFTM should be read first, but I think this one can squeak by on its own.

Summary: After Pittsburgh, John struggles to figure it all out: how did Rodney hide all this? Who is the real McKay under it all? And most importantly: What does John really want to do about it?
A/N: Thanks to [ profile] goblie and [ profile] debris_k for helping me out. It is very appreciated.

John knew that things had changed. Really, fundamentally changed. And all he wanted to do was get drunker so he didn't have to think about it. )

John didn't want Elizabeth to go on the mission, not at all. )

I think my thoughts can be summed up by:

"Uhm. What?"

ETA: After half a day to consider, it's now: "No. Really. WHAT?"

I'm very happy to be here.

Of course, that could be the 4 Long Island Iced Teas speaking. :)

It took a bit longer to get downtown than usual, thanks to lots of construction on the roads, and my brain fade of forgetting that one can not get to Spadina from Lakeshore, but about 1/2 late I arrived at my hotel, which is connected directly to the Convention Centre where the event is being held.

What greeted me was... A line up. A really, really LONG freaking line up.

I called Ash to see where he was. His answer: in the line; about a kilometer from the entrance.

This is the first year that we've seen such a thing, and it turns out that it is largely due to the event being held in the North building this year, instead of the south one. When the event is in the south building, the line sort of loosely travels through the whole (ginormous) convention centre, and the actual processing of the people happens much more in bulk. This year, the crowd was forced to gather on the street rather than within the building, because there were only two doors through which to enter. Apparently the Toronto police department got a bit concerned about the size of the crowd (which was in the several thousand even before the doors opened) and took over crowd control.

For myself, I managed by accident to line jump straight to the front, and ended up not waiting in line. When I got through to the pre-paid ticket section, there were ten (10!!!) ticket counters that were manned but had no line up - because the Toronto police security detail had elected to only allow 100ish people through the doors at a time.

Did a walkabout the vendor floor - fun stuff in the Tron booth, the Buried Alive coffin ride, the Alien pod booth, and it was lovely to see a Supernatural Metallicar (with correct license plate) taking up the CW booth.

I still would have rather seen Ian Somerholder, but I can't really complain.

I got to talk to some of the artists I like, and sat in on a couple of sketch duels (always fun).

I have yet to decide if I forgive them for having Tahmoh Penikett's Q&A at the exact same time as James Marsters'. Right now, it's not looking good.

This weekend is Fan Expo, which is Toronto's largest and best-attended fan event of the year. It includes Anime Expo, Horror Expo, Sci-Fi/Fantasy Expo, Comic Expo, and Gaming Expo all together under one roof. I've been going for the past several years, and I can honestly say that it's the best event I've attended. Usually a bit weak on organization, especially around getting people in and out of the Q&A rooms, but overall great fun. Two years ago I got to meet (for real, not just look at) Buzz Aldrin - which was a highlight of my life so far. Aaron Douglas tends to come every year, to at a minimum cruise the floor and chat with fans. Two years ago I ran into Kate Hewlett (again, literally - I almost plowed the poor woman over) and we chatted about how devastating the cancellation news was with SGA. The authors and artists who attend are amazingly fun, and easily 70% of the 60K people who show up cosplay too.

Who knows what I'll see this year!

Hey everyone

Seems like it's been an exciting couple of weeks while I was gone.

The good news is I had a fantastic time overall.

The bad news part 1 is that I had a somewhat spectacular beach accident and ended up with dislocated toes and really horrible bruising on my left foot. It laid me up for a few days and is still being a hell of a bitch.

Bad news part 2 is that I wasn't able to work on Atlantis Big Bang at ALL while I was gone, which means that I believe I am out for this year.

The mitigating news? Is that I still plan on writing Unleashed; it will just take longer than expected.

How have you all been?

850 words. Better than the big fat zero I had yesterday. Let's see if I can increase that pace over the next couple of weeks. Ideally, we could match last year's schedule. Wish me luck!

Warnings: Alternate Universe, crack-y

Prompt: #19 - A Lagoon

Summary: When an angry, injured orca is brought into Atlantis Aquarium after tangling with a motorboat, Director Elizabeth Weir figures it is a golden opportunity to keep also injured trainer John Sheppard busy. Soon, the whole staff is engaged in unravelling the orca's complicated past.

A/N: This story ends a bit abruptly - originally it was planned to be quite a bit longer. While a complete story, it nonetheless leaves many things open-ended. I don't expect at this point to write a sequel.

The high-pitched scream of an angry whale split the quiet. )

I love it when something comes together.

I now have the basic storyline for a sequel to 'whipping boy' - Still hardcore sci-fi, still lots of action and sacrifice, and still including my favourite OC team. It will be told by Lorne and John again, too.

Most importantly - it brings me a way to have John and Rodney on opposite sides of a conflict believably! Wooooooo!

I'll likely be canvassing for betas, if anyone is interested.

I love this challenge. Write 7 stories based on prompts, chosen by lottery. Fun!
