FIC: Sleeping with Ghosts [28 Jun 2010|10:56pm]
[ mood | like God ]

Written for the fic/art challenge at cutler_beckett 

Title: Sleeping with Ghosts
Word Count: 6, 591
Characters: Rose, Mercer, Jack, Goldie, Gibbs--mentions of Cutler, James, Andrew, Pintell and Ragetti
Pairings: Rose/Mercer, Rose/Jack, Rose/James, Rose/Cutler, Cutler/Jack and Mercer/Cutler if you stand on your head.
Warnings: SERIOUS AU, SERIOUS GORE, torture, character death
NOTE: Okay I would like to say that I have poured everything I've got into this fic for weeks and weeks and I couldn't be happier I did. I've neglected Rose for too long and after this thing I know again that I am a serious writer and can turn out amazing shit when I put my mind to it. Be warned readers--you may get mad at me for what you are about to see but I love it anyway. I'd like to take a second to thank my beautiful beta Beth for sitting up late with me and as always being ready with a list of torture methods and my squirrel Kate aka sunsetdawn20 for kicking my ass and making me write a legit AU, and then listening to me whine after I'd made up my mind to do so. I'd also like to thank Matthew Macfadyen without whose hot amazing fluffiness I never could have gotten through the endless angst.

God I really hate myself sometimes [18 Jul 2009|10:42pm]
[ mood | guilty ]

The stage really really fucks with people I swear.

So we are officially two days away from the showing of "Words," the poetic play in Manhattan--we are filming on Monday with a sizeable audience of about twenty people because we actually OVERSOLD! It has been such a crazy, wonderful expirience but of course because it's me we're talking about nothing can ever be simple. How is it possible that at a time when I should be at my happiest I am breaking my heart and my brain?

One of my costars in the show is a guy I've known for over a year, and we've gotten really really thick together. He's handsome, a too-brilliant-for-words writer and just a fascinating guy. I think of him very much as a brother. This guy is a very gaurded person who I think has a lot of secrets, but puts on a very elaborate, layered front for people that can hardly be understood. A lot like me. And I think we gravitated towards each other for that reason. Instantly we sensed each other's masks and the strength we took only from ourselves. He once told me "You're the only person I know who has any true strength." A few weeks back he actually said, "I hate everyone, but I love you."

Now, because I am very sheltered and because of my disability I often feel very very strongly and get somewhat overly attatched to people when they make it clear they care for me--especially men. And so much has happened with this guy and is continuing to happen that my mind is going heywire. He has transferred out of my school and after this show I don't know when I'll see him again. The thought of this is becoming more and more disturbing to me and I don't know why. I can't stop dreaming about him, thinking of him. In the play our director has cast he and my other friend as lovers. There is an awful lot of them holding each other, grabbing each other and every time I see it I just wish it was me. But why? I am not in love with him. I set him up with my closest friend, I got them back together during a horrid, horrid breakup they had before he left school. Last weekend I let them stay at my house because they wanted to be with each other after not seeing each other for months. Oh to be a third wheel! Watching them lay in each other's arms on the floor. They are perfect for each other and I love them both like wild. Why did I hate them for being happy? Why when he said "I want to spend the rest of my life with you" did I feel my whole point of view being disrupted? It was so much easier to believe true love didnt exist. Do I want him or just anyone to love me the way he does her? Was it the weekend, or the stage that's fucking with me? Maybe it's just all the time I'm spending with him. I would never, never come between them.

I don't want him to forget me when he leaves. I've never felt like I was important to anyone as amazing as I think he is. I want to continue being there for him even after he can't see me, and to know that I can still count on him. He makes me feel safe, wanted. I don't want to lose that. And I just want him to hold me in his arms for half a minute before he goes. I don't know how to ask for any of those things.

A few announcements! [15 Mar 2009|05:03pm]
[ mood | happy ]

Hello lovelies!

I haven't posted here in a while because internet explorer has been fucking around with LJ but I got firefox so everything is chill now. I miss you guys like crazy so I wanted to check in with everyone and make a general report about important stuff that's been going on lately.

Firstly of all: Gray Girl has been published in the February issue of an online journal called "Wordgathering" that seeks to expand the genre of disability literature. Anyone who wants to have a look at it can go here: http://www.wordgathering.com/issue9/poetry/mammone.html In other news, I've been offered two peer teaching positions for the advanced poetry and advanced prose classes next semester! I also opened at a reading for one of my very, very favorite slam poets at her Woman's Herstory Month reading last week! It has been a network-fest like what this semester!

Secondly: I wanted to ask an open question to my steady readers over here: how many of you are still with me on Song? It's been a bloody dog's age since I posted I know but I think my muses will kick in if they know there is still an audience. Kate and Maria I know you guys are down for the ride ::hugs:: Pink? Kitty? Biggles? Are my big sisters still down?
  The reason I ask is because I have come to the decision that Song in Red and Gray isn't content to be just a fic anymore. It's very close to its ending but Rose is not through with me. I've recently decided that I would like to revise it heavily and turn it into an original novel. However, I've also been attempting to contact Terry Rossio to discuss the prospects about publishing it with some of its Pirates elements intact. I've been seeing more and more published fanfics in bookstores and I'm wondering if this could be a legitimate path for me. Whatever I decide to do I'm really really really going to need your continuing support because the fic NEVER would have come this far without it.

Other creative detritus: A special note to june7rose : The Norribeth vid I'm making for you is about half done, I know it's taken forever but it's going to be really tight! I am going to read the excerpts from your book, I promise! I'm so excited for you

And now this is the Idea That I Need to be Talked Out Of: I've joined a club here at school where artists across all mediums meet to just do their thing. Many of my new friends are dancers and I've been watching them carefully. I've figured out that I can mimic more of their steps than I'd ever thought, I just can't do it without something to hold onto it. A few months ago the main dancer in this group was telling me about how dancers need props, whether it be a scarf, a ball or a chair. So I have decided to choreograph a dance piece using my wheelchair as a main prop, almost as a partner. I plan to have it ready by December of next semester for the school's Art of Healing showcase against domestic violence,  Yes, I am completely and utterly out of my mind.

So yea, miss you guys terribly. This is about everything that's been keepin' me away lol. Just want you gals to know I love you. And as my hero once said: May the work always be good!

Song in Red and Gray-Chapter 38 [24 Jan 2009|08:28pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]

Title: Song in Red & Gray-Chapter 38: Future
Author: ophelivia
Rating: R-NC17
Word Count: 18,530
Pairing: Beckett/OC, James/OC
Characters: James/Rose
"Do just what I tell you and no one will get hurt."   A series of vignettes spanning both films.
Status: In-Progress
Disclaimer: I don't own the Pirates characters. Rose is mine, but I should mention that she began in an RPG over on fanfiction.net. This story has nothing to do with the plot of that game. The prompts for each chapter are from 50_smutlets
Warnings: Power plays, S&M, emotional manipulation, prostitution and implied slash. The chapters will go in no real order. I'm picking the prompts at random.

Hey y'all! I'm back, finally. So going back to school for a new term in four days so I wanted to pretend this vacation was as productive as I wanted it to be. You know what that means: new chapter! This one took a while to get right (you'll understand why.) Please keep reading! Earlier chapters: here
