If you find something way in the future after I post it, please don't hesitate to comment! I love feedback, and that includes concrit, so whether you enjoyed a story or you think there's something I can improve about my writing, I'd love to hear any of it. ♥

Genre: Psychological Drama, Surreal
Words: ~3,900
Rating: PG-13

Notes: So there was this fic exchange a couple of years ago...

For [livejournal.com profile] aisforinterval, who has literally waited TWO LONG YEARS for this thing. (Clearly, 2015 is the year of posting everything-that-is-almost-finished-but-not-quite that lives in my fic folders.) I doubt any gift is worth a wait that long, but I hope you enjoy this at least in some small part!

Thanks (as always) to [livejournal.com profile] talkingtothesky for beta'ing/proofreading/Britpicking. (Though I kept American spelling/punctuation because I'm a bad person.)

Summary: Every day is normal.
Prompt: Sam is frustrated by still being unable to leave 1973, starts experimenting with lucid dreaming, finds that it affects/controls the world of 1973.

Companion FST to my Life on Mars / Doctor Who longfic crossover Starman!

I created the core of this playlist years ago, and since then it's guided a lot of my structure/theming, seeing as I primarily plan scenes out in my head with audio/visuals rather than descriptions (screenwriting major derp derp). You can basically consider this playlist a chronological "movie soundtrack" to the fic, except for the various Part titles, which are instead basically outlines for their sections, and "The Real Me," which is basically... an outline for the whole fic dkjfhaksd

For the past year or so (wow!) I've been hacking away at a hefty LoM/DW Sam!Master crossover longfic because the concept of Sam!Master is something I can't ever get over. So far, I'm at 29K words (BIGGER WOW) and still going strong (BIGGEST WOW???) even though I'm probably only about halfway done (WHAT HSFGSLFS). During this whole process, I've done a bunch of doodling/reference art for myself and while I was waiting to either post it with the finished fic or not at all, [personal profile] ferntree was an enabling sweetheart and talked me into sharing this particular image in LoM chat the other day.

This is meant to be an ensemble "cover" type image of the four principal characters in the fic (minus the antagonist, OR IS IT AAHAHAHA), mostly to INSPIRE(!!!!) myself rather than serve any real purpose sjghaks this is my working method, okay. Fic excerpts included because I've promised myself not to post any chapters before I'm finished with the entire thing, but do you realize how hard it's been to stop myself. (Also, while on the subject, I think I owe it to [personal profile] margo_kim to mention that she's the greatest beta ever. ♥)

Uh. Right. Fanart.

SMOKE AND MIRRORS
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lacidiana
Fandom: Heroes
Characters: Nathan, Sylar, Peter
Pairing(s): slight Sylar/Lydia
Genre: Gen/Drama
Words: 3,434
Rating: R; violence, language, non-graphic sex
Spoilers: up to 4x06: Tabula Rasa

Summary: None of him fits together.

A/N: It was only when I was at the end of this thing that I realized I'd already written the Supernatural version of the exact same fic. FML. Anyway, rushed to finish this by Monday night since it's a quasi-tag to 4x06, and I guess I beat PST but not EST so much. Oh well. :( Either way, fic assumes a bit of A/Uing off the end of 4x06.

Nathan Petrelli can't shake the feeling that he's walking through a dream. )
