The drive out isn't so bad )

ndnickerson: (het big bang)
It's almost time! I'd like to figure out what to write, though. I have definitely decided that it will be a Nancy Drew story this year. Of all the fandoms I write, that's the one that's most fun for me to write.

[Poll #1906771]
ndnickerson: (chuck-casey cut of your jib)
So, I've come up with a survey for Nancy Drew book readers. It's short, just four questions, and it's just to satisfy my own curiosity. If you're interested, you can take it here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/LS5PHBS . You don't need an LJ username or any other way to log in, and the answers are totally anonymous.

My rationale for this is behind the cut, because I don't want to bias responses. In fact, I tried to make the answer choices as non-biased as possible.

Explanation )

strange.

nothing else but this is now my longest (sole-authored) series, currently just over 178,000 words. I'm writing the fifth story in the series, and it's going to run at least 5 more chapters before I start the next story in the series. (This is pretty crazy because I started writing it just under three months ago; red label, for example, dates back to 2006.)

souhait accordé is almost twice as long, currently almost 331,000 words, a good deal of which was cowritten with [livejournal.com profile] killingstreak and [livejournal.com profile] littlemsmessy. That was started September 2011. (souhait is currently on cycle, or book, 4, and a fifth and sixth are planned.)

Man, I can't even imagine how awesome the summer of 2013 will be, if I have a similar amount of time to write again...

Chuck fic is done and has been sent to be beta-read! Just got a great idea for a Lois & Clark fic! [livejournal.com profile] het_bigbang deadline for both those stories is in 16 days!

And what doc do I have open? A Nancy Drew porn battle (amnesty-round, no deadline) entry in progress.

Yep.

My priorities are totally in order.
ndnickerson: (ad-fun sexy time)

A - Your current OTP

B - A pairing you initially didn’t consider but someone changed your mind

C - A pairing you have never liked and probably never will

D - A pairing you wish you liked but just can’t

E - Have you added anything stupid/cracky/hilarious to your fandom, if so, what

F - What’s the longest you’ve ever been in a fandom

G - Do you remember your first OTP, if so who was in it

H - Do you prefer characters from real action series or anime series

I - Has tumblr caused you to stop liking any fandoms, if so, which and why

J - Name a fandom you didn’t care/think about until you saw it all over tumblr

K - How do you feel about the other people in your current fandom

L - Your favorite fanartist/author gives you one request, what do you ask for

M - Your favorite fanart or fanartist

N - Your favorite fanfiction or fanauthor

O - Choose a song at random, which OTP does it remind you of

P - Invent a random AU for any fandom (we always need more ideas)

Q - A ship you’ve abandoned and why

R - A pairing you ship that you don’t think anyone else ships

S - Show us an example of your personal headcanon

T - If you mostly have homoships, do you have any heteroships

U - If you mostly have heteroships, do you have any homoships

V - Are you one of those fans who can’t watch anything without shipping

W - 5 favorite characters from 5 different fandoms

X -  3 OTPs from 3 different fandoms

Y - A fandom you’re in but have no ships from

Z - Just ramble about something fan-related, go go go




my answers )

ndnickerson: (ad-fun sexy time)
Seriously, guys. Christmastime spoiled me. I am in desperate need of more Nancy/Ned fic in which they may or may not rip each other's clothes off with their teeth. I'm shaking like a crack fiend. I blow through anything updated at [Poll #1811284]

reveal!

So, the [livejournal.com profile] het_bigbang stories have been revealed!

To see my story and the artwork that was created for it, visit the main site.

Theoretically the whole thing is up at Archive of Our Own, although it's been throwing up errors so who knows.

I've also started posting it over at [livejournal.com profile] ivory_charmed.

The story: Nancy's on a long-term undercover assignment for the CIA when she finds out Ned is marrying someone else.

For those of you who were on the filter and read along, you will now be able to read the sixth part, which is a flashback to their time together in Berlin.

Enjoy!
ndnickerson: (absolutely fabulous)
(actually, i had to go to the grocery store.)

What I wrote for Porn Battle XII:

forbid (nancy drew, nancy/ned, set in the runaway AU, follows runaway and to prove a negative; pg-13)
Carson forbids Nancy from seeing Ned. She disobeys almost immediately.

breathe out (so i can breathe you in) (nancy drew, nancy/ned, AU; NC-17)
Nancy and Ned are accidentally exposed to an experimental compound, with unexpected results.

lifeline (criminal intent, goren/eames, post-series; NC-17)
Dr. Gyson suggests a therapeutic exercise for Goren.

mistress (legend of the seeker, richard/kahlan, post-series; NC-17)
This honeymoon won't last forever.

--

I was going to write a Chuck story but I ran out of time, and I'll probably just add that to the list of stories I have in the works. And I had an idea for another Nancy Drew story but I'll probably just let that one go because I have too many going already. Blast it.

save me.

This is how ridiculous stuff like this happens.

Have we talked about Nancy Drew Files 99? How I went to the bookstore the day it was supposed to be released and actually worked up the nerve to ask an employee if it had come in when I didn't find it on the shelf, and when it was handed to me I practically hyperventilated with joy? Yeah. That is all entirely true.

I can't remember how I ended up there but I found a lot of the near-late Nancy Drew Files original cover artwork on a website, and got excited. I collect Nancy Drew; I collect books and cassette tapes and CDs and Mad Libs and postcards. I could have COVER ART? Like, MINE?

So I got bored this past weekend and pulled up that site, that had a lot of the cover art available for sale, and... it was unavailable. Suspended. Which freaked me out a little. (Was it like the internet equivalent of a sketchy chop shop?) So I posted to the Nancy Drew Sleuths site, asking about it, and got a response the same day about it, so, awesome. Backup site link, hooray!

Then I asked if anyone knew who illustrated the early Nancy Drew Files -- let me give you an example.



See how rich those colors are? How amazing it is? Yes.

So someone emailed me off-list geeking out about Nancy Drew Files cover art (he has 35-40 Nancy Drew illustrations including Files) and now I'm frantically Googling, for example, Enric Torres-Prat, who did AMAZING early Nancy Drew Files covers, and...

And I want a piece of cover art. Like, now. Like I want to order it right now. (I would DIE if I could get the original art for 19, or 6, or 7 - I think having the art for 8 would make me sad since that's the book when Nancy and Ned break up - or 18, or 22. And don't even get me started on the prospect of somehow getting a Nappi cover.)

I am in awe of those Nancy collectors who post photos of their collections, and I think, I wish I had a room big enough to display all my books the way I want! And that I had the money and time to spend on the books and memorabilia. And the Halloween costume, which one of my fellow teachers swears she's going to find for me in some random antique shop one of these days.

(I dreamt once that I found the Nancy Drew halloween costume. And I wore it. And there was a Ned costume as well. Of course if I found the Nancy Drew costume, I would NEVER EVER EVER wear it, but, hee.)

save me.

i mean, Nancy Drew.

and in celebration, here's my collection:



this is when i was still sorting, so while all the nancy drew books are on the shelves and arranged, on the lower shelves my perry mason and donald lam and a few other assorted books are stacked. on top of the unit are nancy drew-related things (a few nancy drew read-a-long sets, some shiny yellow-spines, my set of 1930s nancy drew movies, my nancy drew movie tie-in messenger bag, etc).

(i've also just ordered six more nancy drew books, so i might have to shift a few soon.)

a few of these are double trucked - i have about 10 lavender double volumes, and around half of the nancy drew on campus series, and those are behind on a couple of the shelves, since i don't look at them nearly as often/hate them.

i've also officially run out of shelf space - i'll probably take a few pics of my other identical shelving unit and the shelving unit i stacked next to it, at some point, and i have a small three-shelf unit that i can use for books, but it's ridiculous. ahh well.

01. i saw revolutionary road this weekend. i was struck by:

-how much it felt like a play. closer was a play that really worked as a movie; revolutionary road is apparently based on a book but i was watching it with subtitles, and kate and leo's line deliveries and dramatic gestures did make it feel really play-like.
-how much leo's character was like pete campbell from mad men, only slightly less of a sociopath.

i'm of the opinion that if you like the movie, you'll love mad men. it has a lot of the same elements, the same ambiguity, but i feel that it's done better.

02. damages has really kicked it up a few notches, especially with last night's episode.

and all that crap about your family )

03. in fact, maybe it's time for us to talk justified. i've really enjoyed it so far, and the preview for tonight's ep looks like it is also going to be great. now i want to read some elmore leonard.

04. chuck! on to the spoilers! )

05. on sunday i just watched an old episode of community for the hell of it (it was the phys ed one). i do love that show, and i wish it would come back on, but apparently it's coming back the same week chuck is, which makes me sad. i can't wait until the DVD set comes out so i can get more people watching. =D

06. i would be so happy if scifi would air reruns of mst3k once a week like they used to. even on saturday mornings, like they used to. *sigh*

07. part 2 of the law & order: criminal intent season premiere tonight. i hope everyone currently alive stays alive and that there is more hugging and marriage-feigning tonight.
