I would hope the title would be enough, but in case it isn't: here you will find links to all the work contained within this journal. The poetry is closed-access because I am a sensitive little flower and don't want people I don't know seeing it, which is kind of perverse because I like it best. Oh well. Anyways!

So my Dreamwidth anniversary is swiftly approaching. (I can't believe it's been almost two years since I started this journal, how did that even happen.) I am determined to finish something in time to post it on July 20th. So I am taking a poll. I bought paid time specifically so I could do this. So I would love you if you took, like, 5 seconds to check a box. Or multiple boxes. Whatever floats your boat, etc.

This poll is anonymous.
Open to: Registered Users, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 0

In what universe would you like to see me to finish an original piece for my dreamwidth anniversary?

Wasn't that fun?

Also I tend to shy away from letting my fandom work and my original work mix, which mostly isn't a problem, seeing as I've written two fandom things in the last two years (I'm not even kidding, two.) But in case anyone wants to see it (I know some of you came here from my fandom journal, so who knows maybe you do), I now have an AO3 account to which I'm slowly moving my fandom work including the 1934857 HP fics I wrote back in the day (seriously, I didn't realize how many I'd written until I went to transfer it), which I never bothered to move to my second fandom journal. As such, most people haven't had the chance to see them before now. (God, what a golden opportunity for you, right?) So, you know. Now you can do that.

title: machines and spirits ought to know
author: [personal profile] cridecoeur
prompt: self-searching for [community profile] parthenon
characters: sin, virtue, hestia
rating: r
word count 810
warnings: hestia's still a crossdresser who needs to put on some fucking shoes, and a minor character gets offed.
a/n: this is a character study piece for someone i'm trying to take longer than 700 words to kill - at which i'm utterly failing - because i like his character so much and whose voice i was having trouble capturing from the outside. this also contains a bit more of hestia's back story. the structure may seem familiar; the opening scene of machines and spirits was a character study of leper that worked so well i decided to keep it as part of the storyline. that said, i will say another thing: leper may be a sociopath but this kid's fucking crazy.

She burned with brightness, a pinnacle and a beacon, light blooming out of dark, bursts of color, red and green and blue, sliding over skin, wavering reflections, underwater bodies, reaching out, hand to hand, mouth to mouth, like to like. )

title: machines and spirits ought to know
author: [personal profile] cridecoeur
rating: r
word count: 942
prompt: personal quest for [community profile] parthenon
warnings: leper's still a sociopath, hestia's still a crossdresser who needs to put on some fucking shoes, and i still don't like quotation marks. also, there's the little matter of murder in this chapter, and a truly upsetting reaction to that murder. (omg leper, you just killed somebody, cut it out D:).
a/n: this does skip ahead somewhat, chronologically. sorry to be confusing, but I'm not a very good linear writer. also, for those interested in the creative process (what of it there was), i kept listening to these three songs on repeat as i was writing. creative process aside, those are good songs. sin fang bous: \o/

The sun casts the shadow of Jubilation’s body against the ground, a twist of darkness, a slender nothing, while Jubilation herself rises and rises and falls, a rhythmic exercise, occupying atmosphere, height. Hestia and I stand side by side, heads tipped back, hands brushing, watching her acrobatics, her vain performance for those people gathered below. Hestia cups his hands to his mouth and shouts, Jubilation! )

rating: pg-13 for scheming
word count: 711
a/n: i'm posting this solely so I'll stop obsessing over it. i'm going to rewrite the shit out of this eventually. what i wanted to come across in here really just doesn't. D: note that a negative, in this universe, is a person who negates the super powers of anyone they come into contact with. there's a lot of prejudice against them; they're pretty much universally considered villains. people you'd otherwise consider heroes will routinely kill negatives. also, leper reaches a new level of creepy here (I love him, the freak), and I continue naming people weird things.

Hestia talks as he drives, one hand tight on the old wooden steering wheel, the other on the stick, white-knuckled and elbow-locked. )

title: machines and spirits ought to know
author: [personal profile] cridecoeur
rating: pg-13? i don't know i suck at rating things.
word count: 1122
warnings: superpowers, crossdressing, minor character death, a sociopath with a serious god complex, and a complete disregard for quotation marks. also, later installments are going to involve quite a bit of violence and even more minor character death. yes, you really did just read all those warnings in one place.

Her meteor split the sky, shuddered the ground to shaking, a white-light blinding body, burning with love, burning with atmosphere, burning and burning to hips and knees and finger bones, knots of her bones, bare, down to the essentials, the elements, the earth, the ash of her body fallen from the heavens. )
