orockthro: George with glasses and "NERD" written on her forehead (George + Nerd)
Well Nanowrimo this year has mostly been a flop. I'm happy to plough through words, but this idea is so amorphous still. It's a quieter story than I thought, and those take longer to pin down. 

Conveniently (or not?) I do have another POI fic that's chewing at my brain. It's a time travel fic, and I spent longer trying to unwind canon's idea of continuity than was wise.
There's an error somewhere, not that this is a huge surprise to anyone. XD Either S1's  Machine-vision screen cap that dates Ordos happening in May 2010 got ret-con'd, or Finch sent the laptop with the machine-freeing code (that spurred the mission in the first place) out into the world prior to Nathan's death in September 2010, as he implied in the S2 finale.
I'm going with the latter, which is happily convenient for this fic. ;)

And then there's the Irrelevant Exchange! Which is exciting. :3 I'm glad I signed up - it's always nice to write/draw things for people, and always nice to receive things in return too.

Despite my original stuff falling into a much slower pace than Nano would like, it looks like there will be many words in the next month.

Oh yeah! I finished a thing!

Finally got this fic finished and up. It changed a lot through the writing process, and now… now I’m planning its sequel. Because that’s happening, apparently.

He stands in her kitchen looking lost. “I’m looking for my uncle Harold. I think you might know him. I think you married him, actually. Is he here?”
(Or, Harold is gone, but the world keeps on turning. Will and Grace struggle to find purpose, and are haunted by an unexpected ghost.)
((Warning: deals with the offscreen death of a character, but in a way that focuses on grief, moving on, and finding purpose.))

Finished it! It will also be posted with the next installment of Sarcasticsra's fic.
Poly make-outs are the best way to start drawing smut, right? I leapfrogged right over the easy two-people option. lol!

Here, have a WIP while I drink my coffee.  Reese/Finch/Grace, all Sarcasticsra's fault....

Did up some art of Grace for Sarcasticsra's new fic, With Words Strung Together (which is fabulous go read it!)  

10 in 10!

so.... o___o

Day  7: My big bang fic

Day 8: Burned (PG-13)(Kara Stanton, post Dead Reckoning drabble) 

Day 9: Tracking Devices (Teen)(Finch and Reese exchange tracking devices. Because that's how love works, right?) 

Day 10: Lunchboxes in May (PG)(Grace and Harold and John and Leila, 4 years down the line).
“Kindergarten is only half days, sunshine. You’ll still be eating lunch at home with Grace and Harold,” he said. From on top of his shoulders Leila squirmed. She was growing fast for her age and sprouting like a beanpole, all legs and arms constantly in motion around a little frog belly.

.... I guess I managed to do the 10 in 10 challenge!

Code Decay

Summary: Nathan lays back on the bed, Harold’s bed, the bed that possibly started all of this. He’d washed the sheets for him since, but he imagines he can still smell sex. “I always wanted to be a dad, you know.”

A slow page turn and an even slower turn of the head. “You’re getting ahead of yourself. There may not even be a baby. Olivia must be very early in her first trimester, and the level of error is not insignificant in—”

“Harold, just shut up.” Nathan throws a pillow at his head.

(Or, it’s 1983 at MIT and things aren’t simpler at all. Poly Harold/Nathan/Olivia and the years of Will Ingram’s conception, birth, and babyhood.)


Although I got a neat graphic (linked in the AO3) I still went ahead and drew myself an illustration. For reasons.

This fic is one that grew. It became surprisingly important to me. I hope people enjoy it. I'm glad to finally be able to share it.

Today's 10 in 10 is a doodle for the 200 word gender AU drabble I did the other day... 
Tomorrow's 10 in 10 will be much more impressive (BIG BANG BIG BANG BIG BANG) but today, a doodle.

I'm still rolling out fic for the 10 in 10 challenge! Having to basically tell my internal editor to put up or shut up has been a little strange. But it's good, I think, to a) force out some WIPS and b) force out some drabbles that might not have gotten written otherwise.

Day 4: Like a Ghost in my Mind  (Shaw makes things right. And by right, I mean she breaks Nathan Ingram out of captivity) (Teen) (1,800 words)
"Back before everything fell apart, Cole used to say, “Look, the guy they’ve got down there? That’s not right, Shaw. I don’t think they let him out. Ever,” every time Research adjusted their intel. Because it wasn’t quite as simple as just getting a place, a person, a target, and then sending them in to raze the place. Sometimes Control would run it through their man downstairs, and sometimes the target would change."

Day 5: She Names Him (Kara ficlett! Dude she's a hoot to write.) (PG-13) (200 words)
“Get dressed,” she tells him once she’s come and he’s spent and laying on the dead stranger’s sofa. “We have a flight to catch.”

Nothing like writing some Kara Stanton to make a rough/stressful day/week at work float away.... ;)

 I'm THREE FOR THREE on the 10 in 10 challenge! 


But seriously, I'm finding things in my WIP folder I had completely forgotten about. It's a good thing to do, like cleaning out the fridge. Only I was a little nutso on the timing of it. But anyhow, I tidied up a fic and got it out, and I'm calling it a success. It might have just molded in a google doc folder for another four months if I hadn't.

Today's fic for the 10 in 10 challenge is a short drabble while I try and pull together my big bang, but it was fun to write. I blame Cortue, because she's now forever burned the desire for lady!AUs into me. Maybe someday it'll be a part of something bigger, but probably not.

Unrelated: the reality of the big bang deadline is settling in. I'm sitting pretty for it, and mostly I'm excited to finally be posting this sucker soon. There's still some tinkering work to be done (@__@) but I'm getting there. I'm not used to holding on to a fic like this for so long. It'll be very good to have it out there and done with.

Sooooo against my better judgement, I decided to go for Astolat's 10 in 10 challenge. XD Foolish, possibly, but also a good way to chew through some of my WIP folder and maybe get some stuff out.

So here's today's fic

 Although I did get 400 words or so put towards the Will Ingram and Grace Hendricks fic that's been clawing at me, I accidentally on purpose wrote a very self indulgent fill from a prompt on the kink meme and it's mostly [personal profile] sarcasticsra 's fault that it became an an actual thing. Yup. I'm still content to blame her entirely. I mean, she's a very good bad influence, let's just say that.

I've got two big (by my standards) POI fic going at the same time here. It's possibly foolish, but it's helped with the painful "must post" impatience to be able to flip over to the other. 

POI Big Bang Fic (Yellow Painted Room? 1983? Titles are harddd.)
22,500 words.
This one is really mostly finished, but I need to tighten the seams like wow and maybe chuck in one more scene for good measure.
But oh god this fic ended up being. Like. Really important to me. I hope people like it when it goes up on the 15th.

The Will & Grace Fic (or, the Dead Harold fic. Titles are seriously the worst thing ever.)
3,700 words.
Ug. This fic. This is the ... 7th? time I've completely scrapped and started this one fresh? But it's finally working I think. I still have a long way to go on this one. I don't know how long it will end up being. 
Just have to keep plugging at this point, and keep flooding it with all the feelings in the world. Which isn't hard since I have all those feelings in spades. 

Yup! That's the update. @_@ Just gotta keep on keeping on and chucking words until they stick. 
Man, when I finally post either of these I'm gonna have a drink.

Soooo today was kinda awesome! Not only is it Friday, but I got to meet and hang out with [personal profile] pendrecarc who is absolutely delightful. Through a series of shockingly convenient word choices, we learned that not only do we live in the same city, we work at the same place (abet for different companies). We are a powerfully thrown frisbee away from one another on a near daily basis... if the frisbee was thrown by a giant. But STILL.
And, even better, it turns out that [personal profile] pendrecarc is lovely and delightful and didn't mind as much as she probably should have as we wasted 45 minutes of her work day gushing about POI and fandom at each other. 
orockthro: (POI Mod - The Machine)
(I should win some award for most posts in a day after a year + of not posting at all....)

[personal profile] sarcasticsra and I made a community here on DW! It's [community profile] pofinterest_chat 
We noticed that although there was a nice fic comm ([community profile] pofinterest_fic ) on DW, there wasn't really a place for folks to just shoot the shit about POI. 

SO, if you are a Person of Interest fan we invite you to come check us out! Start a new topic or jump into an existing one, whatever strikes your fancy! 

Hope to see you there!

So a thing Cortue and I have been doing is recording a podcast (roughly once a month) that focuses on the fantastic ladies in Person of Interest called Ladies of Interest.We've been posting them on tumblr so this may be old news to ya.
The way we've been structuring it we've been discussing one woman per episode. Then a few weeks later, with input from listeners too, we put together a Roundup post of awesome things fandom has done with the character.
So, it's pretty fun. ;)

Here's what we've got so far!

Episode 01: Grace Hendricks
The Grace Hendricks Fandom Roundup

Episode 02: Joss Carter
Roundup will be posted soon)
