Irony: the opposite of wrinkly

All my fics are currently on Dreamwidth, not LiveJournal. But you can get there from here.

The neat thing about Dreamwidth (well, one of the many, many neat things): you don't need a DW account to read locked posts. All you need is an account on any OpenID-enabled site. Which means that, if you have LJ, you're all set.

Because a couple of people have been asking, here's How To Get At Erin's Locked Fics: the step-by-step version, with pictures.Collapse )

Realized I really ought to have one of these. Still a bit disorganized; consider this a WIP...

'Sup, everyone? I haven't been crossposting here for a couple of weeks now, so I figured I should probably make some formal announcement about it.

...uh, I'm not crossposting anymore.

This isn't related to LJ's recent Stupid Thing (the timing is pure coincidence; LJ always has a recent Stupid Thing). It's just that crossposting to this journal is a nuisance, always has been, and I finally got fed up with it. And considering that the new chapters of State of Grace are going to be showing up every other day, I seem to have gotten out just in time ^_^;

As usual: If you still want to get updates through LJ, erinptah is the feed for my blog, which does weekly roundups of posted fanwork. If you want to be able to read locked fics without getting a DW account, here's the step-by-step explanation. If you want an actual DW account, here, grab an invite code:
When all those have been taken, leave a comment and I'll hook you up.

And...I think that's it.

If you're coming with: see you on the flip side.

And if not: so long, and thanks for all the fish =)

Fandom: Real life
Subject: moving out
Title: North For The Winter

I've spent the last couple of weeks packing up (most of) my worldly possessions, in preparation for moving out of my parents' house — which is also the house I've lived in since I was three.

This mix is (a) an excuse to procrastinate on filling those last couple of boxes and (b) an attempt to talk myself out of Abject Panic by using The Power Of Song.

Title: Eyes Like Dead Birds (or, Five Ways Of Looking At That Monologue)
Rating: PG-13
Contents: Light sex, memory loss, angst, unbleeped homophobia, Minesweeper abuse
Characters/pairings: Jon and "Stephen" (paired and separately), past "Stephen"/"Jonathan", bonus Steve
Disclaimer: Follow the fake cut.

Hands up if you saw this coming a mile away.

Five different ficlets based on the outline which Stephen's writers helpfully provided in last week's monologue. Detailed though it was, it's still marvelously open to interpretation. How much of it is literal? Who is the mysterious "Jonathan"? Is anyone else hungry for cupcakes with icing tuxedos now?

Medium: Television
Fandom: United States of Tara
Subject: Tara and her inner family
Title: All Systems Are Go

In the actual series, Tara and her personalities have troubled relationships. Most of them can't communicate directly with each other, and they spend more time being frustrated with each other than figuring out ways to cooperate and compromise.

This mix is a kind of AU Season 2, in which the alters start really getting to know each other and work together.

Only the back cover outside the cut, because the front cover is spoilery for the season. Ditto for several of the songs. High-res version of the cover art can be found here.

Looks like I'm going to be between stories for a while. In the meantime, have a meme:

Ask me a question about one of my stories. It can be absolutely anything in any fic and I will tell you the honest-to-god answer. Don't hold back. Anything. Whatever you ask, I will try my best to answer.

The post is here. It's also locked. If you don't have access, ask here and I'll give you a DW invite code, or follow these steps to sign in with OpenID.

Fandom: The Colbert Report
Subject: Liberal!"Stephen"/Jon
Title: Baby, It's Fact

A liberal AU version of how this pairing could develop.

Instead of being a repressed conservative with trust issues and hidden submissive tendencies, Stephen is a TMI-prone liberal with boundary issues and a secret longing to Dom the hell out of someone. All of which means that, instead of coaxing him to open up so they can get together, Jon's first step is pushing him to back off a little.

Title: Seven
Rating: G
Characters/pairings: "Stephen", liberal!"Stephen", happy!"Stephen", Steve ColberT, Jermaine Maine, Sweetness, Esteban, Jon, Allison
Disclaimer: Follow the fake cut.

Based on the virtues given in Dante's Purgatorio, where each corresponds to one of the Deadly Sins. Seven sentences, seven virtues, seven "Stephens" (and associated doppelgangers, alter egos, and hallucinatory voices):

Title: Five Other Correspondents Jon (Thought He) Seduced
Rating: PG-13
Characters/pairings: Jon/everybody - specifically, "Stephen", Sam+Jason, John Hodgman, Aasif (offscreen), and Olivia
Disclaimer: Follow the fake cut.

The long-awaited companion to The Grey Wolf Is On The Prowl, as suggested by holly_cullen and girlanachronism. Jon considers himself a master of seduction. Most of his staff are just too nice to burst his bubble.

Olivia's scene is inspired largely by this interview.
