amatara: (Londo and G'Kar - armies cannot stand)
Wow, it's been ages since I posted here. But I did manage to be at least mildly productive while I was off playing on tumblr!

(1) Someone started a B5 meme on LJ where people can leave and fill prompts, both kinky and other. While there haven't been many fills yet, I did write two stories so far:
  • Belonging (Babylon 5): Vir/Lennier, PG-13. Vir and Lennier meet again after the Telepath War.
  • One (Babylon 5): Jeffrey Sinclair, NC-17. Jeffrey Sinclair getting used to his new body, including the sex bits.
(2) I recently signed up at the Pandora roleplaying community, to play Londo Mollari alongside Hobsonphile's Vir and Starforgedsteel's G'Kar. Given that one of the first fannish discoveries I made after watching B5 was the roleplay Selena, Hobsonphile and Iamsab did at theatrical_muse for these characters, this feels strangely like coming full circle. So far I'm enjoying it tremendously, and we're exploring such threads as Londo's Keeper forcing him to attack Vir, Londo telling Vir the truth about the Drakh, and G'Kar visiting Londo in a prison cell. Future threads may include Londo and Vir being forced to share a bed in a too-cramped apartment, and finding a way to get rid of Londo's Keeper. *rubs hands in glee*

(3) Work has been utterly crazy (in a not-so-great way for a while, though things have been looking up and I'm starting to enjoy myself again) so I've been in a bit of a slump writing-wise. Still, some story ideas I'd like to find time to explore:
  • It's been almost a year since I wrote my big post-canon B5 fic Though I Walk Through the Valley, connecting the dots between Fall of Centauri Prime and War Without End, and I think I've finally taken enough distance from it that I might start to write the missing scenes I had in mind for it: Vir and Lennier on Centauri Prime, perhaps Londo's actual death scene, and... well, anything goes, so requests would be welcome too. 
  • Continuing my foray into smut I started with the B5 (kink) meme, I really want to write some Londo/G'Kar/Timov. Preferably with D/s undertones where Timov ends up calling the shots, because Timov is my empress and I have a mighty need.

So, this is it! I just posted the last chapter of the fic that consumed my life for the past four months, ever since I gave in to that crazy impulse to write the one B5 story I've always wanted to see written. Well, 'consumed my life' is probably still an understatement. If there's anything that I learned throughout this, it's that I'm probably not cut out to be a writer - that is to say, writing is my passion and my joy but it's also my addiction, and the way I've been living these past few months to get this thing written... let's just say it wasn't very healthy, not for me and not for the people living with me and who were so kind to put up with me throughout this. It's still an experience I wouldn't have missed for the world, though. And I think I can say that, of all the stories I have written and may yet write in the future, this is the one story I hope I can be remembered by. Because every emotion that's in there is real, in some way, and mine, and because I am so fond of the story in itself and so proud of it too. So (I'm getting emotional now, dammit) if there ever comes a time that I need to leave fandom, and I hope that time won't come for many years yet... this is the story that I hope people will associate with me. It's by no means perfect, partly because I didn't get a beta while writing it (which I still think was a good call, or I would never have finished it) and partly because of the deadlines I had to keep setting myself to just get through it... But I think it still manages to do what I wanted it to, and even plot-wise, the puzzle pieces fit together pretty well with only a few ragged edges, so... yeah. I think I can safely feel proud of this thing.

And I really hope this won't sound presumptuous, but thank you so much to everyone who cheered me on through any part of this, whether it was with a few words or a thousand, and whether you actually read the story or were just passing through. It made all the difference in the world, believe me. And to everyone who was waiting to read this until you were sure I'd actually be able to finish it (which I don't blame you for, for a while I wasn't all that sure I would either :) )... Here you go, I hope it was worth the wait!
