Year in fic meme, because I actually wrote fic in 2011! This version stolen from [livejournal.com profile] rae1013.

Year in fic )
rynne: (cold Eowyn)
Family has left, but today we leave to go visit more family. Back on Thursday, after which I have three priorities:

1. Actually get started on the summer job search.
2. Play more Zelda: Skyward Sword while I still have access to my sister's Wii.
3. Outline and maybe get started on the fourth fic in the series started by Start Infinity Again, which has been developing itself further in my head. It's...another one of those fics with plot. *headdesk*

Otherwise -- LiveJournal, I've put up with a lot over the eight years I've been here -- the eight years I've been paying for this site. And I'd still put up with this latest fuckwittery, even though I had to change my journal style to keep the actually good comments page...but your customer service is for complete shit.

I'm not abandoning LJ, but I think I'm finally going to stop renewing my paid account. And I'll give that money to Dreamwidth, who cares more about their user base.

So...first, can someone remind me how to import my journal entries from LJ to DW? Last time I did it was in 2009.

Second, I am, unsurprisingly, rynne on DW. If I don't already have you added there, could you give me your username?

Merry Christmas and otherwise Happy Holidays! I've had family at my house for the past three days (usually we go to them), so I've been being a good host and haven't been on my computer much. I still don't have much time to talk now, but I hope all of you have a lovely winter holiday of your choice. :)

Title: Closer
Author: Rynne
Fandom: Star Trek XI
Pairing: Kirk/Spock
Rating: R
Length: 11,700
Summary: Written for [livejournal.com profile] ksadvent. Prompt: Academy AU. Kirk has a massive crush on Spock and convinces the professor to go on dates with him, although nothing happens (Jim can delay gratification, really he can!). Finally Spock caves in over the holidays.
Notes: Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] novembery for the super-fast beta!

Part One )

Part Two
rynne: (don't look down)
Tomorrow is my last exam. I'm not all that worried, though. I took really good notes for this class (42,000 words' worth ahahaha), and the test is open book, and I've studied. I'm sure it's going to be hard, but I'm not going to fail. Beyond that, I don't really care.

I should probably spend the rest of tonight studying, but I'm not going to. This isn't the kind of test I can cram for, and I need to finish my [livejournal.com profile] ksadvent fic. My posting date is the 18th, but I'm still not done and I need to get it betad.

So...anyone up for betaing it? Like I said, I'm not done yet, but I really hope to be done either today or tomorrow. Right now it's at ~6,500 words, and I doubt it will go over 10,000. It's an Academy AU and probably going to be R. Mostly what I want is someone to check my characterization and pacing, so you don't have to go too in depth if you don't have time.

Please?

Goodbye, November. You were mostly significant for me finally being able to post my Big Bang. Which, you know, in case anyone missed it -- Start Infinity Again. Generations fix-it! Kirk Prime in Reboot! Crotchety old married couple space husbands!

I've been working out my notes for more of the universe starting with that fic. Yes, notes. I don't have a spreadsheet, but that's mostly because I don't really know what to do with a spreadsheet. I do have a table in a word document, though. It's got basic idea details for each planned fic, plot notes for the fic and where it fits into the universe, and character notes for what I'm trying to do with the characters. It's...really organized. Much more organized than I usually get for fic. XD

And at least two more of the fics have expanded in my mind into becoming chaptered fics. Not necessarily very long chaptered fics, but still chaptered. But I'm going to have to wait to actually write any of them until winter break. Which, speaking of.

One last day of classes, and one class left. Next Tuesday is my first final, the 15th is my last, and then I'll be done with my first semester of law school. Wow, that went quickly.

I'm trying not to freak out. Last week my Contracts prof gave us a practice exam question that he'd meet to give us individualized feedback on, and my meeting with him was today, and he said my answer was one of the best in the class. Which was, wow, not expecting that. We talked about the things I could improve, and then our last Contracts class today was a review session, so I feel pretty prepared for that. It's the other two I'm more worried about. *sigh*

Okay, two and a half more weeks of school, and about as long until I post my [livejournal.com profile] ksadvent fic. So...I need to write that, while studying for exams. At least I have a pretty solid idea -- now I just need to sit down and write it.

I've been...expectedly productive this year. :p

Notes: First of all, enormous thanks go to [livejournal.com profile] ansley15, who whipped this thing into shape and whose advice made me so much happier with it. Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] jactrades for the amazing art, and to [livejournal.com profile] vertrauen for the awesome mix. Thank you as well to [livejournal.com profile] solara1357 for assuring me the story wasn't as bad as I thought it was, and to [livejournal.com profile] ladyblahblah, who listened to me talk about it and helped me with some tricky moments.

This story overlaps with canon in several places. There is dialogue from Generations, dialogue and story from STXI, and quite a bit of the dialogue and story from Star Trek: Countdown, the comic prequel to XI (which makes that movie make a lot more sense, by the way).

I started this story because I've read a few "Kirk survives Generations and reunites with Spock" stories, though depressingly few, and I've read several "Kirk Prime and Spock Prime are reunited in XI-verse," but I was unable to find any that did what I most wanted. Namely, the "Kirk survives Generations" fics tended to end with his reunion with Spock, but what I really wanted to see was his life after that -- how did he adapt to life in the future? And he wasn't that old in Generations, so if he survived that movie, he could conceivably have lived long enough to be there for the events of XI. No one seemed to have written that story, though -- so I did it myself. I hope you all like it.

And finally: There are more stories in this universe, including two shorter chaptered fics already completed following the further adventures of Kirk Prime and Spock Prime in XI-verse. There will also be more about the new crew of the Enterprise when I have time to write them. However, my beta for this story doesn't think she'll have time to do more stories, so I need a beta who's willing to tackle a whole developing universe. Please PM me if you're interested, and I'll give you more details on what I'm looking for. Thanks!

Chapter One | Chapter Two | Chapter Three | Chapter Four | Chapter Five | Chapter Six | Chapter Seven | Chapter Eight | Chapter Nine | Chapter Ten | Chapter Eleven | Chapter Twelve | Epilogue

You must know that I do not love you and that I love you,
because everything alive has its two sides;
a word is one wing of silence,
fire has its cold half.

I love you in order to begin to love you,
to start infinity again
and never to stop loving you:
that's why I do not love you yet.

I love you, and I do not love you, as if I held
keys in my hand: to a future of joy—
a wretched, muddled fate—

My love has two lives, in order to love you:
that's why I love you when I do not love you,
and also why I love you when I do.

--Pablo Neruda, Sonnet XLIV
