ysabetwordsmith: Damask smiling over their shoulder (polychrome)

"Part of Your New Life" is up on LJ, next in the Damask thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

ysabetwordsmith: (Schrodinger's Heroes)
This story belongs to the Schrodinger's Hulk series, a crossover between Hulk and Schrodinger's Heroes. It is a sequel to "Safe Keeping" and "Two Spirits, One Past," and "For the Very First Time." It fills the "original characters" square in my 6-11-14 card for the [community profile] fanbingo fest, and the "sunny" square in the public card for the Birthday Bingo fest.

Format: Fiction
Title: "The Path of the Sun"
Fandom: Hulk/Schrodinger's heroes
Summary: Bruce is not a fan of birthdays, nor of parties in general. Pat is pretty sure he can change Bruce's mind.
Required Warnings: No standard warnings apply.
Notes: Gentle coaxing, laid-back planning, low-key celebration, party food, games, team as family, cottoncandy fluff.

Here ends "The Path of the Sun." Thank you all for sticking with the Schrodinger's Hulk series this far! I love your input. Final thoughts on the story overall are welcome, in addition to reactions on this specific chapter.

I do not have another piece of fanfic to post at this time. I've been crazy-busy the last few weeks and will be through the end of October. Sorry to break off like this, but when I'm overbooked I have to cut the nonpaying projects first. :( Keep an eye on the fiction and poetry tags here in my blog; I'll post more if or when I have some.

A note on feedback: While it's not necessary to comment on every post I make, remember that I don't know who reads/likes things if nobody says anything. Particularly on long stories, I've discovered that I get antsy if there's nothing but crickets chirping for several posts. So it helps to give me feedback at least once, even if it's just "I like this" or "This one doesn't grab me." First and last episodes are ideal if you rarely feel inspired to comment in the middle.

Begin with Part 1, Part 2.

 [personal profile] alexconall has written the poem "Little Witches" to my prompt.  It's adorable, with just a bit of a dark edge, and wonderful cultural motifs.

This casts the Hulk from The Avengers. So it doesn't match up exactly with the various Hulk movies, and Bruce Banner is played by Mark Ruffalo. The first story in the series goes into alternate-universe mode after the lab accident while Bruce is running from General Ross but before Bruce meets any of the Avengers.

The Schrodinger's Heroes, project features an apocryphal television show supported by an imaginary fandom. It's science fiction about quantum physics and saving the world from alternate dimensions. It features a very mixed cast in terms of ethnicity and sexual orientation. This project developed with input from multiple people, and it's open for everyone to play in. You can read more about the background, the characters, and a bunch of assorted content on the menu page.

This poem came out of lengthy conversations with [personal profile] dialecticdreamer, and with [personal profile] helgatwb  who lives in southern Louisiana, about how Easy City could have developed from the fractious mix of cultures there.  It also fills the "argument" square in the Birthday Bingo Fest public card.  It is posted here in thanks for LJ user Natasiakith sorting out the Polychrome Heroics poems into individual storylines, and this poem belongs to the same series.

WARNING: This poem features cultural tensions, rude language, arguments, natural disasters, minor character death, and some other challenging topics.  The overall tone is hopeful, though.  Sensitive readers should aim for viewing this while in a steady state of mind.

 [personal profile] aldersprig has written the ficlet "A Rescue, of Sorts" based on my prompt.  It's an adorable little story in which the gentleman in distress is ... not actually distressed by his predicament!

 ... has an excerpt here.  Look closely at the last panel.  <3

Also, I'm intrigued by the subtle, probably inadvertent, but extremely powerful riff on male!Thor battling depression.  There's a discussion about how every day he struggles with wondering whether he'll be able to pick up the hammer, and how tired he gets, wanting someone to carry it for a while.  It's just not something that comics usually deal with at all, but I like the hints of it in Thor's storyline.

A while back, a discussion with a friend led me to raise this question:

Does your kink polarity (Dom or sub, top or bottom, sadist or masochist, etc. if you have one) influence your taste in reading material?

Frex, a Dom might seek out character weaknesses while a sub might look for what strengthens them.  They might favor different points in the hurt/comfort plot cycle. Of course it also depends on which character people identify with and how.  

Thoughts?

Celebrate bisexual visibility.  Presumably this covers everyone who has more than one stripe on their "I'm attracted to this" flag.  For a list of some of my bisexual characters, see my QUILTBAG list.  Also note that a lot of Northerners in Torn World like both men and women, although they usually have a preference.
