Constantine - magic's quite simple
Turns out, getting back into the rhythm of writing fic is kind of painful. Somehow, I was surprised by this -- yeah, I know, what did I expect?

I do have a bunch of Tony/Thor, Thor/Loki plotted out. It needs a very thorough clean-up before it even thinks of going anywhere else. And I kind of have this preg!Loki thing sitting somewhere in the back of my head and poking at me.

Trying to spur myself along/get a reminder that I used to be pretty OK at this fic stuff, I've also been going through my old fic folder, reading the stray abandoned bits from 2009 on (yikes). There was some J2 RPS and Dragon Age stuff kicking around in there, and a really strange Sam/Castiel bit that may have been a prologue to something, but I have no clue what it would have become (I'd apparently forgotten of its very existence until about midnight last night).

Long story short, I kind of ended up finishing a bit of maudlin Hawke/Anders from last year. Funny, I haven't even thought of playing Dragon Age II in months, but there you have it.

It's about 4500 words that feel pretty raw and maybe kind of pointless (and no, I don't know where I'd originally planned to take this one, either). It's progress, though, right?

So, um. Anyone want to take a look at it for me?

(If you're unfamiliar with the Dragon Age 'verse, I can probably sum up the prerequisite knowledge in 5 sentences or less. Actually, maybe 7.)

I vaguely remember the Sam/Castiel thing. I might be wrong, but I actually think it was an attempt to force yourself to find Castiel interesting, lololllllllllllllllllllll.

I know a little bit about Dragon Age! I could look at it for you if no one with better knowledge steps forward. :D

AHAHA, that sounds like me.

Ugh, the Hawke/Anders is MISERABLE and I think this Hawke is probably a lost cause, but if you wanted to take a look, it would be awesome.

I can't help you with any beta process, sadly, but I'm here to comfirm that you were indeed a great writer. Also you wrote me little toaster!Jensen fic a long while ago, and I'm still laughing if I think about it. :D

Thor/Loki, YAY! I can't wait. Also Tony. <3

Aw, thank you. <3

OMG, appliance!J2... I don't know if I should be pleased or ashamed, here :)

I'm pretty sure there was a long J2 fic somewhere at some point that included a toaster!Jared, maybe? Unless I am completely imagining this, which is possible. I haven't read any J2 since 2010, so it could just be wishful thinking :)

I feel your pain. I am just starting to write again after a couple of years of producing very little. I was never a fast writer, but I find my pace at present is glacial. I am hoping that with practice I get speedier.

I look forward to your Avengers fic. I used to read your SPN fic - maybe we were friended once before? (Or maybe I just was friended w/you.) Anyhoo, Tony/Thor & Thor/Loki are both relevant to my interests in the extreme.

The more I think about it, the more I think we WERE friended at some point, when I was writing/reading SPN fic. I remember reading entries mentioning a Mr. Z on my f-list for sure :)

I have your prompt-fic post open right now -- looking forward to reading those!
