Loki Jotunheim

Ragnarok spoiler

I just saw "Thor: Ragnarok" - pretty overwhelming; I need to see it again a few more times. There was a bit too much humor for me, considering the darkness of the basic concept. Fic will fix that. I am already getting fic ideas.

Fan Auction to benefit Puerto Rico: fic, art, vids, crafts, etc. I'm offering a story.

I’ve signed up to write a story for the “Fandom Loves Puerto Rico” charity auction.

If you’re not familiar with these sorts of fannish auctions, they’ve been organized many times over the past years as benefits to raise funds for disaster relief. The first one I was aware of was for the Haiti earthquake.

How it works: Fans offer various items, such as fic, art, vids, beta services, handcrafted items, etc., which usually include customization of the fic or item for the winning bidder. Fans are given a certain amount of time to bid for the item. The winner then donates the bid amount to the charity and emails a screencap of the receipt or other proof of donation to the creator. Then the creator and winning bidder can discuss further details.

My favorite Loki vid

 My favorite Loki vid, by Astolat Shalott, to Goaskinviellja.(Eagle Brother), by Mari Boine.  The language is Sami.  The vid was done for the Vividcon 2015 Challenge show on the theme of memory.

<a href=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llIDq3HQdGU/”>Link to Astolat’s vid</a>

 I love the way Astolat groups together events, not by chronological order, but by memory association.  The quick cuts, perfectly timed to the music, show the rapid and holistic reference of one thought and memory to another.

Imzy

 I'm sorry to see Imzy going out of business.  I had thought/hoped it would be a good meld of the best of LJ/DW and tumblr, but unfortunately it didn't catch on.

Signal Boost: If This Is Wrong: A Film About Fandom


If This Is Wrong: A Film About Fandom from Franzeska Dickson on Vimeo.


It's a film about queer slash fangirls.  It is part of Franzeska's film school thesis. Part of the program is learning how to take a film from conception to the end - including learning how to fundraise to cover costs.
 

They're running their kickstarter right now! Lots of rewards, including a DVD of the movie and a paper zine.

Or, if you'd like to make a tax-deductible donation, you can do so through Franzeska's film school. There are instructions on their website.

Gotta say, I've just gotten the DUMBEST comment I've ever received on a story

Gotta say, I've just gotten the DUMBEST comment I've ever received on a story:

"Oh shit its a thorki"

Uh, yeah. That's why I put "Loki/Thor" in the Relationship field.

Reminds me awhile back. I read a story with the AO3 Archive warning "major character death". I also read the comments to the story, and one reader went on a RANT about "HOW DARE YOU NOT WARN FOR THIS?!?" The author responded, "Um, it's right there in BOLD under the Archive Warning: Major Character Death." The reader replied, "Oh. I never read those. I expected you to warn for this in the tags."

Yeesh.

I posted a new Loki story to AO3: “Lock and Key” (Loki/Thor)

I posted a new Loki story to AO3: “Lock and Key” (Loki/Thor)
“Lock and Key”
Summary: Frigga brings Loki books. And something else.
Rating: Teen and up.
Relationship: Loki/Thor
http://archiveofourown.org/works/9817271

I didn’t like having Frigga “fridged” in “Thor: The Dark World”, so decided to do a fixit fic.

As soon as the deleted scene was released last year from “Thor: The Dark World” showing Loki fantasizing himself to be Asgard’s King, I wanted to write a follow up to that scene. So did a lot of other people, and a whole bunch of uber-angsty stories showed up on AO3 in short order. I couldn’t think of anything that hadn’t already been done, so tabled the idea.

And then I came up with this idea. I love the idea of “mama bear” Frigga and wanted to write a “Frigga Lives” fic. So why not combine the two?

Aside from the “Loki’s coronation” deleted scene I was also inspired by the deleted scene from “Thor” in which Frigga and Odin argue about Thor’s banishment, and the deleted scene from TDW in which Frigga and Thor discuss the reasons why she taught Loki sorcery, as well as the TDW tie-in comic book which shows Frigga had a vision of Loki some time after he fell from the Bifrost. Additionally, Frigga’s teleportation spell is based very loosely on Loki’s teleportation spell in “The Young Avengers”.

My Marvel Big Bang story

Whew! I made it, and just a few hours before the deadline. I finished my story for the Marvel Big Bang.

I originally projected it to be 15,000 words (the minimum was 10,000). Well, it was a lot longer – 50,000+ words. My life has been chaotic over the last many months, and I’m still reeling in shock from the results of an election that feels like a direct assault on everyone and everything I hold dear.

But, early on I set myself a goal of a minimum of 300 words a day five days a week, and I stayed with that goal day after day, week after week, despite everything else that was going on. I made this commitment months ago, and I was 99% of the way there on election day. So I kept on going all the way to the finish line.

“Secret Identities”, a Thor/Loki fic:

http://archiveofourown.org/works/8581408

Summary: It’s a long and twisting road that leads to redemption, whether it’s Thor’s path back from his murderous attack on Jotunheim, or Loki’s descent into emotional darkness when his treachery backfired and he learned his true identity. He struggles between his love for and his hatred of his brother - which path will he take?
Canon divergence from the point where Odin falls into the Odinsleep. Odin’s punishment for Thor’s arrogance: Banish him to earth. Make him mortal. Take his memories from him and give him the identity of the mortal, Donald Blake, a mortal, moreover, with a disability. Because three days as a mortal isn’t enough to overcome the habits of a lifetime.
At first Loki is gleeful about Thor’s banishment, but despite himself, Loki’s emotions turn into longing for what they had once, which turn into fear and determination as he realizes he has to somehow break Odin’s spell, restore Thor’s memories, and bring Thor home before Thor meets a mortal death. And there’s also the matter of the pending war with Jotunheim…

Tony

Last chance to download some amazing Marvel Cinematic Universe fic

It always makes me so sad when a writer takes her work down from the net. One of my absolute favorite writers, goddamnhella, has just taken down all her work from AO3. BUT, she’s put a link on her tumblr, for a limited time, for people to download the files.

http://goddamnhella.tumblr.com/

She writes absolutely wonderful Marvel Cinematic Universe fic, and some other fandoms as well. She’s written what is my all-time-favorite Frostiron (Loki/Tony Stark) stories, “Winterheart”, which I have recced to lots of people. I highly rec it here – and her other work as well.

I had only just finished reading her latest story, "Papercut Heart" and hadn't gotten around to leaving kudos and commenting. I wish I had taken the time.

Papercut Heart by goddamnhella
Summary: Had Tony really forgotten to tell the team he had the arc reactor removed? The look in Steve's eyes said he had. In which Steve is desperately lonely, Tony is oblivious, and Natasha is sick of the whole song and dance. Friendship wasn't supposed to be this hard, was it?

Winterheart by goddamnhella
Summary: For his crimes, Loki’s punishment began in a lonely and endless winter. For Tony’s sacrifice, his imprisonment began with a rescue. A story of ugliness and beauty, inside and out - and learning what the word ‘monster’ really means.

So, if you’re interested in reading her stories, act now – I don’t know how long she’ll keep the link up.
