Is there anybody out there?

Every so often I pop back to LJ, because I loved it so much back in the day, to see what's going on. My latest obsession: Supernatural. And I mean SERIOUS compulsive fic-writing obsession. Which is the best kind, obviously. ;)

So...just wondering if there's anyone on my flist who's a SPN fan?

SG-1 fic: Restrospective

The SG-1 obsession continues unabated so I decided to write a fic that told the story of Sam and Jack's relationship from the start of S1 to the end of S8. It was harder than I thought!

You can find it over at AO3.

Sam doesn’t give it a name, this feeling. She doesn’t even think about it much, preferring to glimpse it obliquely from the corner of her eye. It’s a secret delight that she shares with no one, scarcely even herself.

Old fic, new fic

So, thanks to geneeste pointing me in the right direction, I now have a shiny new AO3 account. I’ve started migrating some of my old fic over there, a few SG-1 and Sherlock fics only so far but I'm hoping to archive everything eventually. Although that will be a project and a half!

But the problem with archiving old fic is that you read it. And then you want to edit it because...gah! (Note to my former self: 'span' is not the past tense of 'spin'. Grrrr!)

And I never realised until now that fan fic has fashions. My SG-1 fic, written at the turn of the millennium, feels so dated. And I don't just mean because they mention things like CD players and videos - which is historically accurate! - but the style itself feels old fashioned.

I don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but a lot of fic posted at the moment is written in the third person, present tense. I like it, and have used it myself in my Sherlock fic, but I wonder why the change? Has the style just spread like a meme? Or is it something to do with the type of stories people tell when they're writing fic? Interesting.

Anyhow, I do actually have a new SG-1 fic that I'm about to post here and on AO3. Gulp. It's the first S/J fic I've written for over ten years and, of course, it's in the new fic style! I don't know how great it is, but I enjoyed writing it. I'd forgotten just how much I adore Jack (yum!) and Sam and their whole messed up, angsty UST! :)

Stargate nostalgia fest

Hi all and happy new year!

Not sure anyone remembers me on LJ, it's been so long! But I've been enjoying a massive S/J nostalgia fest over the past few weeks and now I'm in search of a fandom fix. If there are any S/J shippers still around here, I'd really appreciate a nudge in the direction of some good fic. I think we were still on Yahoo Groups when I was involved in the SG fandom!

(I have actually written some S/J fic, although I'm not sure it's good enough to post!)

Weird, how these things jump you when least expected. Nice, though. :)

Stargate SG-1: Unleashed

I haven't posted here for ages but I know there are some Stargate fans on my flist who might be interested in this.

Long story short, last year I was lucky enough to be asked to script a new episodic SG-1 video game, to be voiced by the original cast. Obviously I said "Yes please!" :)

Episode 1 of Stargate SG-1: Unleashed was released last week for iPad and iPhone and it'll shortly be available for Android. The story arc runs over a number of episodes, with plenty of twists and turns along the way. It's a really cool game and it's so much fun to see Jack, Daniel, Sam and Teal'c back in action. Oh how I missed them! :)

You can check out one of the game trailers here:

And you can see RDA talking about the game during the voice over recording session here:

If you've played the game, I'd love to know what you think. :)
