valmora: "we three" witches, meeting again (Default)
Dear Yuletide Author,

Thank you for writing me a nice thing that I will love this Yuletide! I'm super-excited about my assignment, and hope you are too. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you write!

Things I do like: WORLDBUILDING.

Things I don't: public embarrassment, or anything causing vicarious embarrassment. Rape, graphic violence.

By fandom: )

So, all in all, thank you for being my writer, and I hope what you receive will be as enjoyable as what I will!

This is the LiveJournal of Val Mora.

This journal is friends-locked, with the filters of:
1) original fiction
2) fannish
3) RL

All fanfiction is either unlocked on this journal, or posted on AO3.

If you wish to read Val's original fiction (such as this piece), please leave a comment. Val asks that people looking to read the original fiction not look like sock puppets or likely to steal.

If you wish to be subjected to Val's fannish ranting, you may also opt into that category with a comment.

If you wish to opt into Val's real-life entries, you should either
1) already know Val in real life, or
2) your online persona should be well-known to Val for a reasonable length of time beforehand.

If you stumble across a fanfic that is still friendslocked, please drop Val a note.

Thank you,

Hello Yuletide Writer! I hope you are as excited by Yuletide as I am.

Dear Yuletide Author:

I'm sorry this letter is late. I live in the greater NY area and was without power for nearly two weeks, and so this letter didn't get written until after assignments went out.

Since I happen to know that the only possible fandom you could be writing for (no one offered The Protector / Tom Yum Goong or West Bank Story) is Always San Chome no Yuuhi, and I pretty much described everything I would want out of the other two in my requests, I'm just going to talk about that.

some chat )

And as always, every year that I've participated in Yuletide: thank you, and I hope your gift is as nice as I know the one for me will be.

Val Mora

I don't expect this post to get very long - so far it only has one fic - because I don't ship many pairings in this series and I'm mostly interested in casefic, but I want to finish the whole series before I go gen casefic hunting.

My only real ship is David and Colby, but what I really want is epic case-invoking "should we should we not oh god we're COWORKERS this is a terrible idea and ENDEMIC HOMOPHOBIA IN WORKPLACE and COWORKERS plus EX-MILITARY COLBY" miserable angry ship fic.

I'll let you know if I find that fic. - pg-13, post-Janus List and Trust Metric, drinking on the couch

If those of you who read my journal haven't heard yet, it sounds like comment headers will be going away on Tuesday with the new site update, UNLESS you use S2 AND custom comments pages that are deliberately designed to allow comment subject headers. Not many people do this, because custom comments pages are not terribly popular (they mimic the layout of your main journal).

For several reasons, a large section of the userbase is not pleased by this.

There are other changes that sound like they will be implemented re: comment browsing, userpics, etc., and which may result in greatly-slowed loading times, which I am "Waiting And Seeing" on.

I sort of get the feeling that LJ staff doesn't care about userbase concerns, so if it actually is as bad as all that, I would expect that by the end of the year:

a) the kink memes will have moved to DW or some other site - and frankly, I spend a lot more time on the memes than I do chatting on my journal these days, not that I don't love and cherish you all

b) I will have abandoned this journal to move to DW (where I am also valmora, and which is allowing free registration through the end of the year, should you wish to join)

c) I will be doing most of my communicating on tumblr, which I loathe utterly but have an account on as val-mora and currently do not use at all PRECISELY BECAUSE I prefer LJ

d) I will no longer even consider posting fic on LJ and all fanfic from here on out will be posted exclusively on AO3, without notification here (not that this was not already happening)

It is likely that I would port all entries from here onto DW, if that is possible.

I'm super-pleased to know that someone out there knows these movies/series, and hopefully loves them as much as I do.

Since as far as I can tell none of these series have any fics at all, I'm pretty excited for just about anything!

Thank you for being willing to write something for me.

Since some of these requests have been yens I've had for some time, I've c&p'd requests from previous years, though I've edited them in keeping with what I want changing in the intervening time.

requests! )

If you have my yahoo email account and consider that your "primary" way of emailing me (there shouldn't be anyone of that description here), please cease using it immediately. I last tried to check the account on Sunday after not doing so for several months, and discovered that my email and password no longer work. I was unable to answer the "security questions" to yahoo's satisfaction (my account predates the security questions!), and so I have decided that the account is irredeemable. Any further emails from that account, should you receive any, should be considered spam.

(It's most likely that yahoo froze the account after extended inactivity, rather than the account being hacked. I had it happen to another yahoo account before.)

Title: Apt. 202
Fandom: Homestuck
Rating: R
Characters: John/Karkat
Notes: Originally posted here for this prompt at the Homesmut kink meme.

Fake cut.

Warnings: dubcon, objectification, xenobiology, depressing

The prompt was for John to use Karkat for sex, without caring about him, because caring would make him a homosexual.

( Karkat opens the door and lets John in without saying anything. )

I'm too lazy to double-post both here and at the AO3, so the link below is a fake-cut to the AO3 post.

( Karkat attempts to yell about why why leaving soap out in their apartment's ablutevac chamber is inappropriate. Predictably, this ends in sex. )

I love Charles/Erik/Charles enough, and the movie panders to me enough, that anything not including that [homoerotic] relationship in some capacity is essentially not worth reading for me.

Title: Breathing Space
Fandom: Hetalia
Rating: NC-17
Characters: Finland/Sweden, reference to Åland (and Åland/Gibraltar), Finnish and Swedish provinces
Time period: 2010 (Eyjafjallajökull eruption, death of Polish president Lech Kaczynski in a plane crash)
Notes: Originally posted to the Kink Meme here, in response to this prompt, and not officially kindexed yet.

Sweden has historically been an important source of iron ore, not gold. Finland exports timber and has a strong metal manufacturing industry.

Summary (from the Kindex): The ash cloud makes intimacy a little uncomfortable, but they manage anyway.
