What I’m Working On
Do Dis: List all the things you’re currently working on in as much or little detail as you’d like, then tag some friends to see what they’re working on. This can be writing, art, vids, gifsets, whatever.
I was tagged by @sententiousandbellicose - Thank you, this looks fun!
Currently Working On:
The Doorway (Rizzles fic): Rizzoli accidentally discovers a magical doorway that transports her to an alternate version of her life where two of her closest relationships are very different. It’s a dream come true in one respect, a nightmare in another.
[Give your main character a moral dilemma they said, it’ll be fun they said! lol. This story was inspired by an old British show called Goodnight Sweetheart. A married guy finds a magical door to the past, meets another girl and marries her, too. He basically lives two separate lives while traveling back and forth. When the series comes to an end, he has a choice to make about which woman to stay with. There is no past/present aspect in my story, just a series of events with different outcomes based on chance and character interference.]
Heroic Endeavor (Berena fic): Bernie Wolfe is really Athena, Goddess of war and heroic endeavor, on earth as a mortal to help the woman she loves. Things do not go to plan.
[This was partly based on a prompt I saw by @refreshingly-original, partly on my love for Clash of the Titans, and from there a manip that I couldn’t get out of my head. I tried to offer my idea as a more detailed prompt to an infinitely more talented writer but they shot me down, lol. Not naming nAmes.]
Manip Ideas (ssh, top secret, bitches!)
Marie Antoinette/Louis XVI (Berena) [Think French & Saunders in Let Them Eat Cake.]
Witches (Berena) [Nuff said.]
Something with Serena in her red coat and cigarette smoke. [I have an image in my head but it’s not full formed yet.]
Covers for any other awesome fics I might read that generate a vivid picture in my brain. (Berena) [My AO3 ‘history’ tab is nuts. And if I’ve viewed your story 50 times in one day you know why! lol]
Paramedic!Bernie [A recent request.]
Open to prompts if anyone has suggestions!
On The Backburner:
Cloudy With A Chance of Murder (Rizzles fic): When a tornado touches down on a crime scene, damaging the evidence and revealing more secrets, Rizzoli and Isles suddenly find themselves in grave danger.
[I was really happy with the first few chapters, despite some criticism about the unrealistic way the characters were out during a tornado warning! - tell that to the CSI Miami writers, they used this idea long before I did, lol - but a very serious life event got in the way and I never continued it. I think I would like to at some point as most of the feedback was positive at the time, but it’s so hard to feel motivated for a show that has already been cancelled and was quite shite at the finish.]
Amalfi fic cover (Berena) [I tried a half dozen different image combinations and gave up, really wanted to use that pic of CR in the sun tho at some point, you know the one, with the sleeveless shirt, and the drink, mmm, yeah that one.]
DCI/Security fic cover (Berena) [I think somebody beat me to it maybe, I vaguely remember seeing one like this, and I try not to step on toes when it comes to other people’s creativity. Can’t think of any other reason why right this second.]
Three Bodies fic cover (Berena) [A request that I have yet to fulfil. No idea what to make to convey this lovely oneshot to be honest.]
Maria Von Trapp (Berena) [I think I left it too long for this to be remotely funny now.]
Tagging: @midlifelez @rexwolfe @ames-78 @lestotallystreeped @tea-and-procrastination @ktlsyrtis and everyone else who wants to share! (Apologies if I forgot to tag you, and sorry if you’re sick of being tagged! lol)
