brumeier: (SGA Meant To Be)
I finished my [livejournal.com profile] sgareversebang fic, friends! And what a battle it was, too.

It all started with art by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] velocitygrass. Isn't this gorgeous?



This beautiful art gave me a great fic idea. I was super stoked about it. But it was early days and I had other challenge fics to finish up first. Unfortunately, when it came time to actually buckle down and get moving...nope. No words for this story at all. Panic mode!

My muse, it seemed, was preoccupied with continuing the story I told in Cruisin'. Seriously preoccupied. So I consulted with my writing guru, [livejournal.com profile] nagi_schwarz and she agreed that story would also match very well with the artwork. True fact: both stories involved our boys being soulmates, and charting their lives through the years.

I'm not completely abandoning my original idea, because if the words show up it'll still be cool. But I had a great time writing When the Time is Right. I did a ton of historical research, watched a hundred or so YouTube videos, and tried to remember how to use Photoshop Elements so I could throw some artwork in there. And, because I have zero personal management skills, I did this all in a month. (Please don't ask how many months I had to work on this. Suffice to say it was more than one.)

This was definitely a labor of love. If you want to check it out here's what you need to know:

Title: When the Time is Right
Author: [livejournal.com profile] brumeier
Pairings: Rodney McKay/John Sheppard, Rodney McKay/Jennifer Keller
Rating: Teen and Up
Wordcount: 16,006
Warnings: period-typical homophobia, implied/reference drug use, all the pining

Summary: John and Rodney’s story starts in a ’56 Bel Air convertible and spans three decades of cultural turmoil, personal achievement, and loss. Will the timing ever be right for them to be together?

::coughs pathetically::

I have been sick, friends. Last Monday I woke up with a cough and it just went downhill from there. Flu test was negative. Strep test was negative. Doc finally diagnosed me with pneumonia and gave me three days of antibiotics. So I'm feeling much better, except for the cough that doesn't want to go away.

Yesterday was my first day back at first job, and tonight will be my first day back at second job. I'm already feeling the loss of the afternoon nap I got used to taking. I don't imagine I'll be worth much by the time my shift is over.

Being sick put a real wrench in the works in regards to writing things and getting them finished for deadlines. But I did manage to get some things done. Including my [livejournal.com profile] romancingmcshep fic, which I sent off to be beta'd today. Posting to follow soonest!

I neglected gushing over [livejournal.com profile] blueraccoon, my dear Shoobie friend and awesome person in general. Her birthday was on Monday, and unfortunately she's getting sick too. But she should absolutely be celebrated, not the least for finishing her epic Star Trek fic quite recently. (Like, triple digit wordcount epic. For reals.) Love you, Becc!

I cheated on International Fanworks Day by posting just the art I'd done to accompany my fic. The written scenes have been posted as I finish them. Still to finish are my [livejournal.com profile] sgareversebang and [livejournal.com profile] picfor1000. Hopefully I can make more headway now that my brain fog has lifted.

Here are some fics that got posted in the last couple of weeks but not mentioned here:

brumeier: (WTF - Sentinel)
Here it is, my entry for the Sentinel Reverse Bang ([livejournal.com profile] sentinelbigbang). I fought so hard with this fic, and was sure it was terrible, but you know what? It's not too bad. ::grins::

The artwork that goes with this fic can be found here, with all due thanks to [livejournal.com profile] lapetite_kiki.

Title: In Your Eyes
Pairing: Jim/Blair
Rating: Teen & Up
Warnings: Angsty, emotionally constipated Jim ::grins::

Summary: After the events of Dead Drop, Jim decides that he and Blair need some time away. A recurring nightmare and the threat of Blair walking out of his life force Jim to confront feelings he'd been trying so hard to ignore.
