Finally I finished "All there is". The first story of the trilogy surrounding Khan set after the events of Star Trek into Darkness.

This makes me so insanely happy, even though the story is technically not really over as I've still got to write Khan rescuing his crew. But I've vowed to finish some other stories first.

I've written a lot this year, despite getting MS, having mostly problems with my eyes, so I'm pretty proud of All there is and my huge Teen Wolf fanfic Always an Alpha even though I'm far from finishing it. But I'm on it. That is one of the stories I really hope to finish in 2014.

Another Teen Wolf success is the SS-Santa Story I wrote for Cal, where I took a liking to the Peter/Stiles pairing. So much that I'm going to write in this AU verse (just like Always an Alpha the new 3B season makes this story AU). But being a rabid Pydia shipper I'm going to include not just slash but also het (awww, yes I can't help myself, I'm not a slasher at heart). I'm currently trying to finish the next instalment which is pure Pydia porn (which in my case means I need 5k plus to get to the juicy stuff).

more plans for 2014 )

Oh and I already posted another fanfic for the "penises falling from the sky" prompt: It is a total crack fic with Skeletor/Evil-Lyn/Hordak porn and He-Man being assaulted by a penis army.

There are of course more story ideas and projects but I like to finish those as they are the most advanced.

I am trying hard to maintain my writing habit of writing/editing daily and so far I am doing good.

Now, this is mainly a progress report (also something I did before but never got around to doing regularly) about what I worked on this week and want to do next week.

My main fanfic All there is has now four chapters posted, I got back chapter edits for two and three from my beta and probably upload them again later tonight.

Also sent off chapter 4 and 5 to my beta [personal profile] alessnox.

Chapter 6 is filled with notes, different versions of the beginning and an overall uneasy feeling.

mild spoilers for themes, not events of my fanfic )

Which is probably why I have allowed myself to also write a little PWP with a Khan/Carol Marcus pairing ;) The Admiral's Daugther is not related to All there is but it is way more relaxing to write ...

Thanks to tumblr, my personal headcanon casting for Khan's right hand man, Joachim, is now Tom Hiddleston.
If they ever thaw Khan and his crew up for a later sequel, they just have to make that a reality.

My other projects are currently on ice.

You can tell I am obsessed, can you?

Decided to finally get into Blue Ray with this film ... so today I pre-ordered the Blue Ray set with Blue Ray 3d, normal Blue Ray and DVD for about 30 Euros! The awful thing is the estimated shipping date is the 31st DECEMBER. WTF? I have to wait till next frakking year to finally get this film in decent quality???

I thought I share a few of the fanfics I do enjoy. I admit I do not read every story, because I do not like Sherlock/STID crossovers, there are a few other stories I have avoided for personal reasons, that I might end up reading later on ...

Recommendations under the CUT )
barbayat: (Khan - You amuse me)
Can happily say that I am making progress with the story. Even though lately I have done more editing than actually write new scenes. I keep going back to chapters and re-read them realising that something is amiss or that I mentioned something already.

So I edit, make one occurrence just a passing mention or delete it all together if possible and then clarify that point at better junction in the story.

Introducing my second OC, since she is kind of important to the story, was also something I had a hard time with. Not that I am nervous about people going: OMG, Mary Sue - but because I had to think about how Khan would see her, as he is the POV. That was pretty fun though once I figured it out.

Speaking of POV, I figured that problem out as well. I am going to separate the story by arcs. While some themes will be carried over a main issue will be solved in each one. Giving it some conclusion. For the first story I will stick to Khan's POV - the second part will involve the Enterprise crew, so maybe then I go ahead and use multiple POVs.

Making full use of the series feature on A03, I will also indulge in writing a few gratuitous smut scenes. Who knows maybe I write a few one-shots about some OCs and other canons that relate to the story as well.

BTW, All there is on A03, and hanging out a lot in these two chat rooms: Chat 1 and Chat 2 so if you are looking for writing session join me or contact me and I might just join you ;)

And I got the weirdest crush, especially for scenes where Khan's hair is hanging in his face. *swoons*

Okay, the movie is out now in the US - but just barely so I keep the spoilers under a cut.

This post basically summarizes my basic analysis and summary of the motives of Cumberbatch's character in my movie, who is the main character of my fanfic.

Note: I also composed this more cryptic summary of the fanfic (although looking at the character listed underneath might already do the spoiling.)

POST into darkness. (SPOILERS, duh!) They say let sleeping dragons lie but there is always someone who is not listening. Awaken into a situation even more vile than before, it remains to be seen who will triumph last. The Cardassian Spy who gambles for everything or the one that thinks he has nothing left to loose ... Not beta-read (looking for one)

Spoilers underneath don't go and look )

I might go to see Star Trek Born into Darkness tonight.

Depends on whether I feel okay - and there is one other thing that makes me hesitate. According to Cumberbatch seems indeed to be playing Khan (the rumoured is gone). You know that possibility makes me feel somewhat less excited.

Maybe he is an awesome Khan, because frankly the original Khan was not that great a villain. I know people hailed him and the second film is one of the best according too many. Heh, I love "The Wrath of Kahn". But I always felt Kahn was just a stupid villain.

Recently watched Space Seed again. That guy is just a sexist pig. He is a primitive, single minded abusive asshat. He has no style, they say he is engineered to be stronger and smarter but I never saw any of that. His first attempt fails miserably, he is pretty much beaten by the goofy crew (sorry but Kirk and Co are often fun to watch but more bumbling than competent, every often so incompetent).

For some reason this historian has a crush on him. Because you know, women can get all the equality they want, they still long for an abusive ass to dominate and subjugate them. *rollseyes*

Never once we got an actual reason, except Kahn mentioning that his intellect kept those alive, that did not die, why he is such a good leader. But for all we know, all of the survivors were engineered "superhumans". Except that they were tribal, easy to impress and had not one original thought or purpose.

Khan was great in the role of the primitive single minded revenge seeker "Bah, Kirk, you stranded me and cost me my favourite property - I mean love of my life *cough*".

So if, Cumberbatch is indeed a Khan re-hash, I hope they just mean that in regard to being engineered and that we do see some superhuman qualities, like super strength or supersmartness at play. After all we had the single minded moron with a shiny weapon as the superstupid villain hell bent on revenge in the last movie.
