athousandwinds: (happy ending)
i. Quick question: does anyone know where Cain from Count Cain is actually earl of? IIRC, he just gets called "Earl Hargreaves", which, while understandable, makes no sense. He should be Cain C. Hargreaves, Earl of ______. (And while we're at it, does anyone know what the C. stands for? I'm almost certain Kaori Yuki mentions it in one of the sidenotes.)

ii. In other news, I wrote Coriolanus fic for the [ profile] ides_of_april ficathon, which is for the Greek and Roman plays. Proud of This Pride, Coriolanus/Aufidius, 12. (A triptych depicting a proud man.)

iii. More importantly, I got wonderful fic written for me! brother Cassius is by [ profile] casablancagirl and is a lovely, mind-screwy Brutus fic. The prose is gorgeous and evocative and it's a beautiful glimpse into the Brutus/Cassius relationship, with all its subtext and manipulativeness and seeming closeness.

iv. Also, I feel I should rec Dreaming Spires, because it is Brutus and Cassius as OXFORD DONS and you know that sort of thing can't be bad.

v. And this Titus Andronicus HIGH SCHOOL AU, Fourth Quarter Comeback (by [ profile] the_alchemist) because. you understand. it's like that one version of Othello with Josh Hartnett in it. It should be wrong, but then you have Parents Against Goths ("I'm so goth I was born black") and it ends up awesome.

So bored!

Okay, so you know how sometimes when you're really busy and you want to do a zillion things at once just so that the thing you want to do gets done?



Sweeney Todd, DWJ, early Kuroshitsuji, Count Cain, Witch Hunter Robin, Watchmen, Shakespeare, L. M. Montgomery, Murdoch Mysteries, Maurice, you know, anything you think I might write.

athousandwinds: (terminallyambivalent)
So I'm up to episode 8 of Kuroshitsuji and wow, it's really very creepy. And add me to the list of people who fell wildly in love with Sebastian at first sight. On the other hand, spoilers for the Jack the Ripper arc )

And now I'm getting back into Count Cain, which is equally problematic but with a greater degree of crack.

I'm kind of bored. Anyone want a drabble?

First line meme! Post the first line from all of your WiPs.

"The Bartons were welcoming, as Hilliard had been told they would be, though their eyes sometimes flickered over Hilliard's stripes and then up to his face as if they expected to see another – they did, of course."
- mostly involving Hilliard wandering round the Bartons' house being confused by all these well-adjusted people.

"Curio woke in – not darkness, exactly, but light blurred and dimmed in his vision, blotching purple and green as he blinked."
- five times Curio and Francisco quarrelled, part one of something which will probably never see the light of day.

"i. love suffereth long, and is kind"
- Richard/Alec, drabbles to the tune of I Corinthians 13, at which they fail.

"Haven't we met, you're some kind of beautiful stranger…"
- involving AU!Superhero!Noldor, Fingon apparently liking Madonna, don't ask

"I’ll never forget the day that bastard walked into my office."
- Noir!Elves AU, with Haleth as a hard-boiled PI investigating the theft of three priceless diamonds from a mob family, the Finwions.

"It was a pleasant domestic scene, such as might be found in any household on Kearny's Lane."
- Johanna manipulating the fuck out of Anthony. "I'll get some lye", indeed.

"She was so young in those days, a lovely little slip of a thing."
- this one about Mrs Lovett having an abortion

"His mother took one look at Johanna, wrapped up in a black shawl he'd bought from a pedlar on the road, and tutted."
- part of a potentially longer fic where Anthony tries to come to terms with the fact that his shiny new princess is irredeemably fucked-up.

"It is an assured fact that most English (or indeed, to give Moriarty and O'Hara their due, Irish) schoolboys will work hard, love honour and boxing, and above all, play the game."
- PG Wodehouse's school stories, which was a gift for someone. Never really worked out.

"Their hotel room in Pisa has a balcony and costs twice as much for that very reason."
- an Amon/Robin travelogue, post-series.

"The sights I could show thee, O sailor far from home
Who hath cross'd the blue sea in but a coracle."
- Medea/Jason scrapbook fic, part of which I'm trying to write in hexameter (as above), but I can't even face dactylic hexameter.

"“I don’t think I like myself any more,” he said in a faraway voice, so young and trembling like the aftermath of a storm."
- Nine meets Ovid, post-Time War.

""The TARDIS threw me out," the Doctor said mournfully, his hand on the doorbell."
- a weird Ten/Martha fic

"Thirty-three seconds ago, Donna was screaming for help."
- what time means to the Doctor.

[ profile] athousandwinds: I am a conspiracy theorist. Kit Marlowe was too awesome to die.
[ profile] just_marzipan: Definitely!
[ profile] just_marzipan: and if he DID he was totally murdered
[ profile] athousandwinds: Elizabethan conspiracy!
[ profile] just_marzipan: :DDD
[ profile] athousandwinds: We need to write a book about how Marlowe survived his murder and went around solving crimes.
[ profile] athousandwinds: No, wait! Ben Jonson and Shakespeare solve crimes; Marlowe haunts them and gives snarky commentary!
[ profile] just_marzipan: oh my god yes!
[ profile] just_marzipan: and and idk how but there is OT3.
[ profile] just_marzipan: Ghost OT3
[ profile] athousandwinds: And Jonson is always trying to get the Rose Theatre shut down and stuff, but he can never get the evidence.
[ profile] just_marzipan: :D!
[ profile] athousandwinds: And the first case is totally a set-up by Marlowe to get Thomas Kyd killed.
[ profile] just_marzipan: :D :D :D
[ profile] athousandwinds: And at one point, Shakespeare asks why Marlowe is still hanging around and Marlowe replies with, I don't know, to be or not to be.
[ profile] just_marzipan: ......
[ profile] just_marzipan: oh my god I love you
[ profile] just_marzipan: and shakespeare and marlowe are in ~love~
[ profile] athousandwinds: Only it is a love marked by much artistic plagiarism, because Marlowe keeps trying to write poetry and Shakespeare keeps nicking it. Just to be all meta.
[ profile] just_marzipan: yes! and jonson just sits back and laughs at them
[ profile] just_marzipan: and secretly steals all their best ideas when they're not paying attention
[ profile] athousandwinds: And Marlowe keeps going OT3~ at him, and Jonson is just like, WTFno, I am not crazy like you and Will (because Shakespeare had to be a little bit crazy to be a genius).
[ profile] just_marzipan: (definitely!)
