Fandom Friends

*laughter* As 2metaldog and r0ck3tsci3ntist have gently reminded me without... well... reminding me in particular, my recent wave of fandom friends have been really, really interesting, varied, and fun to get to know. I appreciate them all quite a lot, and they've been the most active in supporting me in this new obsession I have with writing fan fiction.

Writing is so much harder than the decades of technical stuff I've done. With technical stuff, usually I know when something is going to work or not work according to some criterion. Even when the criterion, itself, is really hard to get and can, pretty much, never be gotten completely right as someone always comes up with some new, crazy idea on how they want to use it; it's at least a good measurement before I actually make the thing and give it to someone.

With writing, I can never be sure if it's going to work until someone says, "Wow... I got that."

I love my Twin Souls beta incandescens and my other betas mysocalledhell, stark_black, and calmingeffects for giving me that initial push of, yeah, that'll work... thank you, so much.

Fanfic: Honing the Edge

Fandom: Bleach
Rating: R
Beta: mysocalledhell
Warnings: Implied man on man sex (okay... sword on sword sex). Spoils through the Hueco Mundo Arc.
Word count: 1,195
Summary: Katen Kyoukotsu gets bored during Yamamoto's logistics meeting.
A/N: I tried this six different ways and kept stalling until zangetsugirl made a chance comment off of a very thorough description of both Katen Kyoukotsu and Sougyo no Kotowari. All the inner world and spirit descriptions are out of my head, though sparked by zangetsugirl's ideas; and I'm sure the war will show me to be wrong, but... for now I'll dream of Kyouraku's inner world. For springkink prompt: "sword porn - the edge is a dangerous place to be"
Disclaimer: I don't own or make money off of Bleach. Depicted sex is between... uhm... consenting swords that are more then 2000 years old so.. yeah, not minors. It's all fictional. Nuts.
