Write Every Day! June - Day #1

What is this?
This is a challenge to try and write something every day. Our hosts so far have been trobadora, navaan, me, miss_morland, avon, and this month we'll continue here again. What this means is that I'll post a daily entry, and everyone who wants to take part can check in with their daily achievements in the comments, and I'll keep a running tally throughout the month. Even if sometimes all you manage is a sentence, it's still proving incredibly helpful - I know I never would have managed to write as much as I did this year without our challenge!

Who can take part?
Everyone! Whether you write fic, original fic, meta, nonfiction - it all counts. We'd be happy to have newcomers to the challenge too, and feel free to bring friends! After all, writing gets a little easier when you can commiserate about the pain - or share the joy of a sudden new inspiration.

On board so far:
trobadora, navaan, miss_morland, avon, vaincs, carnival_papers and me

Progress for Day 1:
I wrote around 500 words so far of what I hope will be a short fic for barricade day. But what I really should do now is to get back to editing my next casefic chapter. I went through it once yesterday, but there is still a ton of things left to fix. /o\
Edit: 1.5k for today, and that chapter edited at last, yay! Not a bad day at all. I might even finish the barricade day fic tomorrow.

May. 28th, 2015

A general update:

  • Have seen Les Mis in London in April. (Thaxtonvert! <3 So beautifully focused and grim! Will never forgive myself for letting Peter Lockyer escape at stage door but we got our picture taken with Michael Colbourne who was adorably friendly.)

  • Will see Les Mis in Austria in one month. (Christian Alexander Müller! <3)

  • Will go to London again in July just for a day to see Les Mis because cast change and I need to see Secomb's Javert!

  • Wait, it gets worse yet, I almost bought tickets to see Los Mis in Barcelona in August but it was sold out already! (And then the next day the tour was cancelled so I dodged a bullet there, but no Ignasi Vidal for me. :/)

  • Have so far heroically resisted the urge to be really stupid and go to NYC just to see Ramin and Earl!

  • Will probably be really stupid and grab tickets as soon as they anounce just WHAT is happening in London in the 30th anniversary week in October. /o\


This is my life now. Sigh.

(I've also written 130k so far this year, have not missed a single day of writing yet, and am 75k into my Paris casefic. I almost made it to their first kiss! \o/ Surrounding myself with suportive and encouraging people was the best decision I ever made when it comes to writing.)

FIC: The Heat of the Rut [Les Misérables]

The Heat of the Rut (2797 words) by Esteliel
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Les Misérables - All Media Types
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Javert/Jean Valjean
Characters: Jean Valjean, Javert (Les Misérables)
Additional Tags: Catboys, Mating Cycles/In Heat, Cat Dicks, Madeleine Era, Something Made Them Do It, Biting, Claiming Bites
Series: Part 3 of Nepeta Cataria
Summary:

“There. See how you want it.” Javert sounded almost smug with satisfaction at being proven right, and Valjean could not protest anymore because it was true. Instinct had taken hold of him, so that he, a lion in his fourth decade, now found himself hard and eager, his body greedy for what even now the heat in his blood whispered to him was perfectly natural, was his right, as though he was still a young cub in that first season of adulthood.




Pretty much a birthday present to myself - because with the Paris novel I've been working on all year, where after 70k I'm still working towards making the first kiss happen in the next chapter or two, I decided I should allow myself a day of writing the most outrageous thing I can think of. Clearly that had to be spiky cat dicks.

FIC: Bye Bye Willie [Broadway RPF]

Bye Bye Willie (1372 words) by Esteliel
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Broadway RPF, Les Misérables RPF
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Ramin Karimloo/Will Swenson
Characters: Ramin Karimloo, Will Swenson
Additional Tags: Coming In Pants, Coming Untouched, Kissing, Making Out After Bows, Goodbyes, Will is leaving
(Archive-locked, so you need to be logged into your AO3 account to access this.)
Summary:

Will is leaving. Ramin kisses him goodbye. On stage and behind the stage.


You know you're in WAY too deep when all the Broadway and West End cast changes cause you two days of emotional turmoil. (Ugh I cannot BELIEVE I only got to see Thaxton once WHY ;_;)

Fortunately Ramin kissed Will during bows yesterday and all was forgiven because my brain got into overdrive and wouldn't stop obsessing about that mental image until I'd written down my own version of that ahaha. Someone save me from theatre hell. (Someone give me a ticket to NYC so I can see Earl and Ramin...)

Characters: Ramin Karimloo, Will Swenson
Additional Tags: Mirror Sex, dressing room sex, Banter, Ramin's rippling abs, Muscles
(Archive-locked, so you need to be logged into your AO3 account to access this.)
Summary:

Ramin stretched a little – not quite by accident, Will thought at the smile of smug contentment that met him when he had to take a deep breath. He swallowed and rubbed his hand lightly over the shifting muscles of Ramin's stomach. Damn.

“See. You do like that.”

“Yeah,” Will said, his eyes lifting back to Ramin's face at last with a bit of guilt. “Yeah, I do.”
 


Yes, it has happened at last, I'm so deep into Les Mis I'm now writing Broadway RPF ahahaha how did hat happen help.

FIC: The Price Not Paid [Les Misérables]

The Price Not Paid (7421 words) by Esteliel
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Les Misérables - Victor Hugo
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Javert/Jean Valjean
Characters: Javert (Les Misérables), Jean Valjean
Additional Tags: Dubious Consent, Alternate Universe - Javert Survives, Rimming, Felching, Object Insertion, Cudgel Porn, washing, Forced Masturbation, Blow Jobs
Series: Part 2 of The Gorbeau House Deal
Summary:

The night of the barricades, after they return to the Rue de l'Homme-Armé, Javert does not leave. There is still a debt open between them after Valjean left him chained to a bed in the Gorbeau hovel ten years ago. This time, Javert is intent on collecting that debt, and to take everything from Valjean that was denied him before. What is one more sin when he already knows himself damned, after all?

It does not quite go as he expected.


Finally another Les Mis oneshot, since I'm still plugging away at the casefic (54k written so far! 36k posted! I should finish this summer with something like 80-100k, which I'm very excited about. It's almost May, and so far not a single day has passed this year when I have not written - 98k in total this year so far, so there's a reason to be proud. And to keep writing!)

Happy Easter! \o/



Have some Drew Sarich instead of eggs because I have already reached the point where I have made myself sick with chocolate. :D

FIC: Trapped by the Cat [Les Misérables]

Trapped by the Cat (7798 words) by Esteliel
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Les Misérables - Victor Hugo
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Javert/Jean Valjean
Characters: Jean Valjean, Javert (Les Misérables)
Additional Tags: Figging, Orgasm Delay/Denial, Multiple Orgasms, Prostate Milking, Blow Jobs, D/s play, Alternate Universe - Javert Survives, Emotional Baggage, Valjean's issues
Series: Part 7 of Tell Night From Day

Valjean has come to know Javert's moods. He has seen him anguished, annoyed, mindless with desire – even happy. Today, when Javert opens and closes the door with a little more force than he usually uses, Valjean recognizes that mood too and shivers, though not from fear. A tentative warmth curls through his belly at the strangely intent stare that is focused on him. And if he feels like a mouse trapped by a cat, then that is because the mood that has overcome Javert is that of the hunt.

Of course Valjean has no intention to run. But what does a cat do with a trapped mouse that does not run?

It will play with it, Valjean thinks, and licks suddenly dry lips. The thought is not displeasing. Not at all.


More Valjean subbing, this time featuring ginger. For Daria who keeps drawing things that give me terrible ideas. <3 (Well I think the figging was actually my terrible idea but she made it 3 times as hot nngh.)

Write Every Day! March - Final Tally

(Previous post: Day #1, Day #2, Day #3, Day #4, Day #5, Day #6, Day #7, Day #8, Day #9, Day #10, Day #11, Day #12, Day #13, #Day 14, Day #15, Day #16, Day #17, Day #18, Day #19, #Day 20, #Day 21, Day #22, Day #23, Day #24, Day #25, Day #26, Day #27, Day #28, Day #29, Day #30, Day #31)

Congrats, everyone, we managed yet another month of (more or less) daily writing! \o/ The tally is looking rather impressive, and I'm so glad we started this and kept this up so long, because there have been a few days when the need to check in was the only thing that made me go and try to write at least a sentence (which invariably turns into a paragraph or two).

Also, don't forget that we are continuing over at miss_morland's journal this month, if you found this helpful and want to keep it up! :)

Tally:
Read more...Collapse )
Day #31: trobadora, navaan, miss_morland, fan_girlishness and me (5 out of 10)

Let me know if I missed you or you wrote something, but haven't checked-in yet!
