[personal profile] dialecticdreamer is hosting Magpie Monday today with a theme of 'Ohana. Leave prompts, get ficlets! There's also a target for tips:

This month, I’m hoping to reach a total of $65 in tips. If I do, I’ll immediately post the full story “Ripple Effects.”
Aida Finn is nowhere near Jules’ class when events transpired on Thursday, but she certainly sees (and feels) the after effects. She turns to Bennett for help coping with one particular surprise. The story is four parts, a total of 5900 words plus a bit, and is ready to post now.

 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer is hosting Feathering the Nest today on the topic of nonsexual intimacies.  Leave prompts, get ficlets!  Donate to keep the writer afloat, and reveal more fiction if it reaches a threshold.

 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has posted "Dealing with Departure" (Part 1, Part 2) about Pips leaving for his next job.  It is beautiful and wrenching.  He's right at that stage where he's starting to think about settling down, but not quite ready yet, so everything feels weird and confusing.  It really is a lot like a romance -- minus the kissy bits and the horrible unhealthy parts where people and clingy and have ridiculous misunderstandings.  They just need time for Pips to figure out his path.  I love this so much more than conventional story arcs.

Due to yesterday's Dreamwidth malfuction, [personal profile] dialecticdreamer is running Magpie Monday today with a theme of "Beginnings and Endings."  Leave prompts, get ficlet!  Boosting the signal will get you extra words.  There will be a bonus story posted if donations exceed $50, proceeds going to replace the author's defunct laptop.  If you want to keep enjoying awesome stories, please chip in toward that.

[personal profile] siliconshaman has posted the story "In Winter's Depths" (Part 1, Part 2).  Chyou discovers that actions have consequences.
ysabetwordsmith: Cartoon of me in Wordsmith persona (Default)
This story belongs to the series Love Is For Children which includes "Love Is for Children," "Hairpins," "Blended," "Am I Not," "Eggshells," "Dolls and Guys,""Saudades," "Querencia," "Turnabout Is Fair Play," "Touching Moments," "Splash," "Coming Around," "Birthday Girl," "No Winter Lasts Forever," "Hide and Seek," "Kernel Error," "Happy Hour," "Green Eggs and Hulk,""kintsukuroi," "Little and Broken, but Still Good," "Byzantine Perplexities," "Up the Water Spout," "The Life of the Dead," "If They Could Just Stay Little," "Anahata," "When the Wheels Come Off," "Against His Own Shield," "Coming in from the Cold: Saturday: Building Towers," "Coming in from the Cold: Sunday: Shaking Foundations," "Coming in from the Cold: Monday: Memorial Day," "Coming in from the Cold: Tuesday: Facing Fears," "Coming in from the Cold: Wednesday: Coping Techniques," "Coming in from the Cold: Thursday: Digging for Answers," "What Little Boys Are Made Of," "Rotten Fruit," "Trying to Find Prui," "Life in Quicktime," "Keep the Homefires Burning," "Their Old Familiar Carols Play," "Fluffy," "A Leg Up," and "Wabbit Season."

Fandom: The Avengers
Characters: Phil Coulson, Clint Barton, Natasha Romanova, Bucky Barnes, Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, Betty Ross, JARVIS.
Medium: Fiction
Warnings: Drug Dealing, Canon-Typical Violence, Dexterity Impairment, Missions, Missions Gone Wrong, Bugs & Insects, Major Character Injury, Injury Recovery, Itching, Hurt/Comfort, Sleepiness.
Summary: A mission to shut down drugrunners in Brazil goes wrong. The Avengers fare pretty well against the drugrunners, but less well against the swarms of insects guarding the compound.
Notes: Food, Bathing/Washing, No Sex, Intimacy, Non-Sexual Intimacy, Herbalism, Massage, Friendship, Team as Family, Avengers Family, #coulsonlives.

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.

I also have a list of favorite photogenic scenes from the whole series for fanartists to consider, partly compiled from audience requests.

Read Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.
