Title: Persistent Ache
Author: [livejournal.com profile] skandrae
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] selmak, who's been very gracious about how long this took
Rating: G-ish
Prompt(s): I tried for the first one, I really really did, but it refused to come together for me, so I went with the second - Elizabeth/Radek, with fluff and stuff. (Here's hoping that the first prompt, which still won't leave my brain alone, will allow me to write it soon ^_^)

Persistent Ache )
Title: Hindsight
Author: [livejournal.com profile] skandrae
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] madjm (who shouldn't have had to wait this long), who asked for John actually using the stick-fighting Teyla's been teaching him, and Someone from Teyla's past causes her to question her alliance with Atlantis.
Rating: G (for so gen it's scary)

Hindsight )
Title: In the Lonely Darkness
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] infinimato
Pairing: Ronon/Teyla, John
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Teyla and Ronon at least had the enzyme to blame for their behaviour. All he had was lust...
Author's Notes: Originally posted here, for [livejournal.com profile] sga_santa. Set during 2x10 Lost Boys. I'm not sure if it's exactly what you were looking for, [livejournal.com profile] infinimato, but I did my darndest. It's very late, I know, but it's done. Special thanks to [livejournal.com profile] reposoir for an outstanding beta at very short notice.

In the Lonely Darkness )
I just realized today that I never actually posted my [livejournal.com profile] sga_secondary piece on my own LJ. I thought perhaps I should fix that.

Title: Unfamiliar Weight
Author: [livejournal.com profile] skandrae
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] darth_hedgehog
Pairing: Lorne/Zelenka
Rating: G
Spoilers: Season 2, "The Lost Boys/The Hive" (02x10-02x11)
Written For: [livejournal.com profile] polaris_starz, who wanted Lorne/Zelenka during McKay and Sheppard's absence in "The Lost Boys/The Hive"
Summary: "Lorne was worried about Sheppard and his team, but not like Radek and the scientists were worried about McKay. He supposed it was the difference in their backgrounds; the major had trained for situations like this. Not many universities offered courses on 'How Not to Panic When One's Chief Scientist Vanishes' in conjunction with their PhD programmes and applications for research grants."

Title: Places of Childhood
Author: [livejournal.com profile] skandrae
Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis
Character: Miko Kusanagi
Spoilers: None that I can think of
Rating: PG
Synopsis: She wonders, as she drifts into sleep, if there will ever be a day when returning to the places of her childhood won't make her feel like a child.
Assigned Cliche: Going to Earth (Character(s) go to Earth, either to visit family, to report, on vacation or for any other reason.)
Author's Notes: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] fish_like_bikes challenge. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] spusan for the rapid beta. Any remaining mistakes are mine.

Places of Childhood )
skandrae: ('nuff said)
The world won't fall apart if I don't get this story written, right?

But I feel like it will. Like maybe I will. And I still can't get anything done.

I just have to make it through tomorrow, and then I have two whole days where I don't have to think about work, or heat, or stupid people. Two whole days where I can curl up underneath my air conditioner and just get the damned thing out of my head.

But getting through tomorrow means going to bed now, because 5AM is getting nearer and nearer...
Title: Ajisai, or Love Among the Hydrangeas
Author: [livejournal.com profile] skandrae
Word Count: ~2,500 (Part 1)
Pairing: Radek Zelenka/Miko Kusanagi
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: S2
Summary: If it weren't for the way Doctors Zelenka and Kusanagi wouldn't look at each other, wouldn't look at anyone, Major Lorne might have found the situation funny.
A/N: Written for the Cuff ‘Em, Vamp ‘Em, or Just Make ‘Em Come Already Kink and Cliché Multi-Fandom Challenge. My prompt: Sex pollen

This is part one - part two will be up later on the 16th, but work commitments have forced me to post half now or give up completely, and I'm not keen on quitting.

skandrae: (*snark*)
Changing airborne Ancient Viagra induced sexin' (with sexual-innuendo-laden dialogue!) to offworld pollen related sexin' (with angst!) may just be the greatest idea I've had in a while.

Thanks, Bathtub! From soothing sore muscles to smoothing out plotlines, you're always there for me.
Okay. I've had my pizza, I'm halfway through a can of Chu-Hi (with several more in the fridge), and the story is due on Monday. Why, then, am I getting ideas for a totally different story that in no way relates to the one I'm supposed to be writing? Why?

I guess that is my mutant power - the ability to only create things when I'm supposed to be creating other things.

I'm pretty sure I'm not signing up for the next (last?) challenge at [livejournal.com profile] stagesoflove. It was fun and all, but I've got a fair chunk on my plate at present and...to be honest, I'd like to start writing things for me... It seems like there are so many prolific writers out there, whereas I can't seem to get going without a deadline and the constant fear of expulsion from fandom.

It's a lot like my last year of university. Except, you know, with less student loan money floating around and no roommates (by the way, good luck at the you-know-what on Monday, [livejournal.com profile] doktor_m) and way too many grey hairs arriving every minute.
So, carrying on the tradition of 'just under the wire' that seems to be my lot in writing, I have finished stage 4 of both my [livejournal.com profile] stagesoflove pieces. In a turnaround from last week, this week it's the Radek/Miko stuff I was tempted to drop. Hopefully, I can pull everything together for satisfying conclusions by next Tuesday.

Need (Weir/Dex) was where I done wrote smut. Please don't laugh at me.

A Slow Kind of Crazy (Zelenka/Kusanagi) was harder to write than it looks. Really.

And now I need to take myself off to work.
So, I got one in on time, and the other was late. I almost dropped the Liz/Ronon, because I'm having a hard time with it and all my RL stuff isn't doing much to help that. But I refuse to let the jerks at work win in fandom, too.

Itch (Weir/Dex) was the one that was late, and I'm not 100% happy with it. But that could be that writing about a character's sexual frustration begins to sound a lot like one's own sexual frustration (or lack thereof), and that's just sad-making.

I was a bit happier with yesterday's entry, Skin-Hunger (Zelenka/Kusanagi), although I think I was doing a bit of the ol' chanelling from my own life there, too.

I guess the general consensus is that if I don't at least kiss another guy before my 29th birthday, the Powers That Be are going to come and take away my naughty bits, since I'm not putting them to good use.
Title: A Spot of Warmth
Author: skandrae
Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis
Rating: G (for "I'm so generic it's scary")
Rareathon Assignment: [livejournal.com profile] rosewildeirish who requested Zelenka (or Lorne), no sad endings, with exploration/discover as a theme
Spoilers: Through season 2, specifically Grace Under Pressure.
A/N: In addition to being late, this story was kind of like a car parked on a hill with no emergency brake - difficult to navigate. I'm not sure how it ended up where it did, but hope it fits the bill at least a little.

A Spot of Warmth )
And, once again, slipping in just under the deadline, my [livejournal.com profile] stagesoflove pieces.

Variations on a Set Piece (Zelenka/Kusanagi) for the Five Senses portion, contains the two "fucks" that offended Wordperfect so much. Girls swear, yo.

Slow Burn (Weir/Dex) for the Stages of Sexual Response portion, by contrast, contains no "fucks" whatsoever, although there is mention of sweaty bodies and discomfort.

Still working madly on the other two things that are due this week, but jet-lag is making me sleep at messed up times.
Also, I posted links to these before, but I never bothered to actually post them in my own journal. So here, following, are the five stories I wrote for the initial [livejournal.com profile] stagesoflove challenge. The fandom is Stargate: Atlants, the pairing is Weir/Zelenka, and, collectively, they were really the first things I've written in a very long time.

Theme: Attraction
A/N: Set during the first season episode "38 Minutes"
Attraction )

Theme: Romance
A/N: Set before and during the first season episode "Home"
Romance )

Theme: Passion
A/N: Set during the first season episodes "The Siege" (Parts 1 and 2)
Passion )

Theme: Intimacy
A/N: Set just after the second season episode "Critical Mass"
Intimacy )

Theme: Commitment
A/N: I didn't actually have any. Just apologies.
Commitment )

And there you have my first real, hard-core re-entry-type foray into fandom.
I am a tool. I got confused by what day it was, and managed to miss last night's deadline for the first part of the [livejournal.com profile] stagesoflove challenge. I've left a comment on the entry prompting for part 2, but I may be out of luck. That's super irritating, since I wrote them both while I was in Kingston, and they're just sitting in my LJ, waiting.

I shouldn't have gone to bed so early, I guess.

Did not manage to convince mom to pay for pants, so I am going to be a bit hungry at the end of the month...sigh~~

Am going to work on my Rareathon and B-Movie fics now, since the deadline is swiftly approaching. Grrrr.

[EDIT - 1:45] [livejournal.com profile] animadri was merciful, so I present to you Focus (for the Five Senses challenge) and Blush (for the Five Stages of Sexual Response). Keeping in mind that I am both rushed and flustered, go forth and tell me what you think. I'm tough, I can take it...before running away and crying like a baby...
Dear Zeus, I ache all over. Like, even up in my hairline.

We're moving things from the old school to the new, and it's been a vastly aggravating process thus far. There are too many useless breaks being taken, too many moments when there is nothing to do but looking like there's nothing to do is bad, and I believe I actually told Waka I was going to kill the old woman (Waka's mom) because she was making me insane.

Today is actually a public holiday, but we have to work it. I have yet to do any packing for my trip home. I have bought a number of presents, but none for my best friend and her family. If I plan on doing that, I need to ride my bike to work, and then go all the way to Itoyokado after work. I made it as far as the Ecos last night, before my tired legs gave out on me. (But I did manage to purchase an insane amount of snack-type-foods to bring to people back home ^_^)

In fannish news, I have a sort of idea of what I'm going to write for my [livejournal.com profile] sgarareathon piece, and a slightly more detailed notion of what I'm writing for the B-Movie Ficathon. My two [livejournal.com profile] stagesoflove pieces are sort of/kind of gelling together in my head. My best hope now is that I can use the little time I have left here, and then the long long time on the plane, to do the best job I can. And roundly curse myself for not having a better work ethic.

Now I am in search of a shower, in the hopes that my muscles will relax a smidge.
Yes, icon, I think I am.

Somewhere, somehow, I think I transferred from the sanity bus to the do crack-headed things bus. In addition to those two things that I have yet to do any significant amounts of work on, I just signed up for two (2) pairings in the latest round of [livejournal.com profile] stagesoflove.

Because I had fun with Zelenka/Weir last round, I decided that it would be even more fun to pair them with other people this time. So, for the Five Stages of Arousal challenge, I will be pairing Liz with Ronon Dex, the laconic, leather-pants-wearing, big-gun-toting, dreadlocks that I just want to touch...*ahem* Liz/Ronon, yes.

For Exploring a Relationship Through Five Senses, I am pairing Radek with Miko Kusanagi, the Japanese scientist who appeared onscreen for maybe two minutes in "Letters from Pegasus".

The first week of the challenge is where things will be tricky, as the first stories are due on the 28th or 29th of March, and the two outstanding things I'm working on are both due on April 1st. I will be in Canada from March 23 to April 1/2 (Dad didn't know when I would be arriving back here), and will have access to a computer, but I think I will be spending a fair whack of my time doing 'vacation' things like shopping and forcing people to entertain me, so I don't know that I'll be writing much.

At any rate, I think I'd best hop in the shower and get ready for work.
*high fives self*

Okay, so it's not exactly Pulitzer material...I don't care. It's been so long since I set out to write anything that actually ended up being finished. I've been more productive over the past six months than I have over the past six years, and that is saying a lot. So w00t w00t for moi.

Made gyuudon for dinner. I'd forgotten how delicious a bowl of fatty beef and rice can be. The fact that I will even eat fatty beef both delights and revolts me.

I forgot to plug the digicam cord into the computer before I turned it on, so no adorkable cat pictures for anyone. Sorry. Ohmygod, they are sleeping in the cat-bed together, and I just want to die from Teh Cuteness.

Blurg. I almost forgot, I'm on the bus tomorrow. Perhaps I will take myself off to bed...
Title: Let Me Hear Your Balalaikas Ringing Out
Author: [livejournal.com profile] skandrae
Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis
Pairing: I guess, if it's anyone, it's Miko Kusanagi (the Japanese scientist from "Letters from Pegasus")/Radek Zelenka. But I feel it's more of a gen piece.
Spoilers: None that I can think of, unless you mean that Rodney McKay is oblivious to the emotions of those around him...Set during Season One.

A/N:Written for [livejournal.com profile] control_freak80's Gilmore Girls title challenge. I originally picked two other titles (which will eventually get written, if Frank Zappa is willing), but got the idea for this during a shamisen exhibition one of the teachers from school took me to in January. This hasn't been betaed, so any mistakes are mine and mine alone.

Let Me Hear Your Balalaikas Ringing Out )
When I went to bed last night, I had all sorts of ideas running through my head. So I jotted everything down in a notebook, and when I woke up this morning, there was a story waiting to be typed. It's over here, at [livejournal.com profile] sga_flashfic.

Now I really need to wash my hair.
