Two Bits of Fluff

[community profile] femslashex is my favourite exchange of this year and every year, but this go round I was just not feeling the writing process.

First of all I learned an important lesson about not offering "Any" when what I really mean is these three specific pairings that I'm assuming are the only ones that anyone will be requesting. Which was how I came to write an Amita/Daphne fic for Ocean's 8 when I'd thought all the requests would be for Debbie/Lou, Debbie/Tammy, or at a stretch Rose/Daphne. So, anyway. That's on me.

Then I picked up a pinch-hit because the ship I've been most excited about all year is Sara/Ava from Legends of Tomorrow, and immediately after I claimed it I remembered that I'd already written a couple of fics about them, and had. Literally. Nothing. Else to say about them. Again, that's on me.

I'd don't think either of the results are bad, exactly, just nothing-y.

Who'll Play Me In The Movie Of Our Lives (Ocean's 8, Daphne/Amita)

Amita rolled her eyes, because of course Daphne Kluger was a triple threat.

Stuck in the Middle (of the Time Stream) With You (LoT, Sara/Ava)

Day 4:

Mostly Sex.

Like, even by Sara's standards, that was a borderline obscene amount of sex.

Well, you already know my opinion of Who'll Play Me In The Movie Of Our Lives, and the fact that it was so uncomfortable/unexpected for you to be asked to write that pairing only makes me more impressed with the fic. You somehow went deep into two characters like, and they ended up working together. Maybe it was more of a character fic than a relationship fic, but I don't, I really liked it and thought it worked perfectly.

I mean, you did actually rock your Amita/Daphne even if it is not a pairing I'd have thought to request. Amita/Rose, definitely. Rose/Daphne, also. Amita/Constance, sure. Amita/Daphne is one of those I didn't think of either, though I did like your treatment of it.

I did rec you! Both your fics, though:

I think they will import over to my journal as I also saved them to Pinboard, but I only have it set to go once a week (or maybe every other week) and I haven't saved any fic in Pinboard in forever, so it maybe hasn't happened yet?

I didn't comment because I am terrible at commenting. So I recced instead.

We were just talking about that on a Discord server I'm on, which is what prompted me to actually rec some of the fics I'd read. I hadn't done that in a while.

I haven't written fic in a while either, but things have been hectic and I've been writing original fic, so. You know.
