Who’s On Top?

dariaw posted the other day about topping preferences for fictional pairings and it’s got thinky thoughts percolating in my brain about the nature of Jack & Daniel’s relationship

In the post, Ronon Dex/John Sheppard, with Ronon topping John was mentioned. That’s not a pairing I’ve ever considered – I thought I was a McShep girl (Also, I don’t have a topping preference there which is… interesting) – but now that it’s been shown to me… it basically stopped me in my tracks and now I’m yes and please and now!
Any/all recommendations for Ronon topping John gratefully accepted… please, show me the love!

Also, as an aside, I’m watching Justice League and holy mother of… fuck me… Jason Momoa’s wife is a seriously lucky woman.

Right. Where was I?
Jack. Daniel. Who’s on top.

In my mind, it can go either way. As I said in my reply, sometimes I like Jack on top and sometimes I like Daniel on top. Sometimes I like a nice ‘fight’ for dominance. It depends on so much – situation, where in the series the fic is set, levels of evil, playfulness, location…
If we’re talking an even marginally evil Daniel, he’s always on top.
If we’re talking first season innocent Daniel, Jack is – but Daniel has to initiate the proceedings.

But that just happens to be how I feel about it. What do you think?

And she’s back

Easter – and Spring – in general are times of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth, so, what better time than to bring this abandoned blog back to life. Or at least make every effort to do so because I really do want to do this as a hobby. It’s just a case of finding a space in my routine for it. And since it’s a long weekend, I can have a sort through and a clear out and figure out what I’m doing with it, what my intentions and goals are – not just here but all over social media

I’ve also started writing again. Jack O’Neill/Daniel Jackson, naturally. I just had this mental image in my mind of Daniel excitedly geeking out over something and the Colonel with his chin in his hand, fond expression on his face just… watching him.
And so, attempting to write it.

Once I’m done with the tidying up, I’m going to write a new introduction since I’m sure anyone who’s still here has completely forgotten who I am… stay tuned, folks!

On Writing

Have first lines always been this difficult or am I just seriously out of practice at writing fanfiction?

I have mostly plotted out my story for my jd_ficathon assignment, I know when and how it’s based and everything. I’m just not entirely sure how it starts or whether it’s from Jack or Daniel’s POV. I know it’s based during/post The Light so perhaps it’ll serve me well for watching it and making some notes about things and maybe that’ll help me find the first line.

I wish I was one of those writers who can jump in at a random point in a story and then backfill – but if I start at point B, point A never happens. And as a reader, I don’t like stories that make me feel I’ve been dropped into the middle of things, I like to have a defined start, so I know where I am.

Fandom Excitement

I have just signed up for my very first fanfiction exchange. The jd_ficathon which is in it’s 14th year and has some authors signed up who’s names make me go wordless and handflappy with fannish glee. And then there’s me. And OMG what if I end up writing for [insert someone exciting here]. And holyshit what if they end up writing something for me.

There’s prompts left that would be so freaking awesome to try and write for an some that make me really hope I don’t get matched for. So is the nature of the beast. Just the idea of being part of something so… *waves hands around* is just… y’know?!

It’s utterly terrifying and incredibly exciting and I am aware I sound like a total geek right now but I don’t care because *flails*

Speaking of fandom things that are awesome, you’ve all seen the announcement about the 13th Doctor right? A woman! I’ve never seen Jodie Whittaker in anything so I need to rectify that but I’m really excited about the prospect of a female Doctor and how – if at all – it changes her perspective on all the things that make the Doctor, well, the Doctor. I’d love a cranky William Hartnell style Doctor, but I’m also drawn to the eccentricity and energy of say Tennant or Tom Baker or Pertwee.

One of my favourite things about regeneration scenes is the Doctor’s reaction to his new body… I’m wondering how he’s going to react to a female body. I hope there’s some kind of ‘well this is new’ response from her and that she doesn’t become sexualised.

I’m also hoping for her to have a female companion. Platonic relationship, women vs time and space would just be bloody fantastic!
