I suck at this meme thing. Nothing I do is short. My new pro-fic story that comes out at the end of the month? I had to split it into three books because it’s 200,000 words long. So I found (or created) good breaking points and made three books. I would call that long only the Igigi universe 461,000 words and my Kin series is 480,000

This will NOT be that long. So, here was the prompt:

From [livejournal.com profile] kaleecat: During that summer while Gibbs was on margarita safari, Tony was handling a recalcitrant team & an NCIS director that wants him to go undercover. What if Tony actually questioned deeper the legitimacy of the op? And how would Jenny react?



Illusions Lost
Our experience is composed rather of illusions lost than of wisdom acquired.
Joseph Roux


NCIS/Criminal Minds
Gibbs has left for Mexico, and Tony’s gut is telling him he’s in trouble. Abby is too distracted by her grief for Gibbs to back Tony up, so he decides to go to the most Abbish person he knows for help: Penelope Garcia. Abby introduced them after the two women met at a forensics seminar for federal agents. So Tony asks Garcia if she will do a little digging, but bringing Garcia in means bringing in other members of the BAU. After all, if Garcia thinks a friend is in trouble, she’ll always turn to her Derek, trusting him to do the right thing. Tony just isn't sure that having Derek Morgan on his side is going to help when he has a director making unreasonable requests, a team doing the minimum required for their job and an overwrought Abby to deal with.

Meme time

Meme time. I did two stories so far:

No More Mr. Nice Archeologist (In two parts)
From [livejournal.com profile] kaleecat: Daniel doesn't care what Jack or the IOA or Weir wants. He wants Atlantis and he damn well deserves it.

Family History of Crazy
From [livejournal.com profile] slvrbld747: The SGC does a lineage chart on John Sheppard trying to find more of that super gene of his, and discover to their horror, amazement, and befuddlement that he is related to the infamous Winchester brothers, who might be alive again

I want to do some quick/mindless writing before I have to go back into the pits of editing. So it's MEME TIME

Tell me a story I haven’t written, and I will give you 1-3 sentences from or about it. Or, a paragraph or six or eight ;) Yep, this is your chance to try and poke my muse into writing what you want.

My fandoms are Sentinel, NCIS, Buffy, SG1 (earlier years), Firefly, Criminal Minds, Stargate Atlantis, Supernatural, Mag 7, Orphan Black
Igigi GibbsThe Reveal

Tony leaned back in his chair and studied the two men who had come to do an exit interview. He’d seen a lot of people leave NCIS, some quitting and others transferring, but he’d never seen the agency require an exit interview from any outside organization. These two were definitely not NCIS. The skinny one had all the twitches of a frontline military asset. Even when he leaned against the wall in his sweatshirt and jeans, there was something in his gaze that suggested he was checking for threats. And the stockier one… Tony had no idea what to make of him.

Year1-3_FBpostSix years ago, Dreamspinner published my first profic. God, it's hard to believe it was that long ago, but it was. Time flies, ya'know.

Anyway, Dreamspinner is celebrating their ninth year in business by offering 40% off all books by their early authors, including me. So if you have missed any titles, and you want to pick them up, now would be the time. The main page has links to all the featured authors.

Kin of the Clan

I have been posting over at AO3, but life has been crazy and I haven't been posting here too. I'm sorry about that. But if you enjoyed the story, there is more now, and I'm hoping to post at least once a week. *fingers crossed*

I know I've been missing, but I'm actually writing every day. I'm really feeling this new one, more than I've felt anything since I started my Igigi universe. I'm 125K into this (two books) and still going strong, which is why I've asked my publisher to hold off until the three books are done. Publishing a story never fails to at least damage the muse. But I'm so excited about this one.

I have an FBI team led by Kavon Boucher, a shaman who leads the Talent (magical) unit.



See more, including the fanfic I'm itching to do )

So I am writing.  I'm just keeping this one quiet for a while and protecting the muse.

Question

Dec. 26th, 2015 07:29 pm
So, I have a magical FBI team (as in they have magical powers and investigate federal crimes with a magical bent). Right now I have the team lead (middle aged man, African American), the team second (early thirties woman, African American), team members (late thirties man, Hawaiian native; late twenties man, Hispanic; mid twenties woman, white; and mid fifties woman, white). If someone new were to join this team, who do you think I should include? Who gets left out of fiction? And we're not talking sexualities because we don't know the sexual interests of the vast majority of this team. They are at work.

Sheppard/McKay
OMC/OMC (but nothing terribly explicit)

After Arcturus literally blew up in Rodney's face, he didn't know how to make it right. So he swallowed his pride and reached out to Samantha Carter for help. Sam knows Rodney better than he understands. She decides to send him not only what he asks for, but what he really needs. After all, if these people don't listen to the truth when Rodney speaks it, she'll find someone better at getting the point across.


Sometimes I just feel like playing in the sand.  In this case, I want to rub John's and Elizabeth's noses in the mess they made after Project Arcturus.

I"m looking for some feedback on an opening chapter. I don't know if I'm catching the reader's interest and making the team dynamics clear enough.



Chapter One

A blast of hot air slammed into the corner of the brick school building so hard that red dust settled over Darren. “Too close!” Darren yelled. He checked around the corner, pulling back just in time for another hit and another rain of fine brick dust. He wished real like was more like television where federal agents got to fire randomly and crystal magic users always had the exact right spell at the exact right time. Instead Davina was crouched down behind Les, her lips moving as she chanted over three crystals. Les had his weapon pointed at the abandoned school where they had pinned their suspect and Traci stood at the far corner so the suspect couldn’t double back around.

She was chanting, a soft lyrical song that sent ripples of protective magic across the team. Les and Darren needed the help. Les’s adept magic allowed him to spot lies when interviewing a suspect, but wouldn’t stop a projectile or keep a wall from landing on their heads, and Darren was the only mundane on a team of all-Talent federal agents. Another blast crashed into the corner of the building above Darren.

Editing

Dec. 12th, 2015 02:09 pm
I really dislike editing. I know I annoy readers by not editing my fanfic at all, but that's because the profic requires such anal retentive editing that some days I wonder why I bother. If I stopped writing profic I could stop editing, and there's a little part of me that considers that after every book. But as much as I love fanfic, I like writing in my own worlds too. And that means editors. Now, I don't mean that my editor isn't good because Kiersten is the best and I love all the work she puts into my stuff, but I dream of a world where I could send her my stuff and then delete all her emails back.
Igigi GibbsI am officially finished with the latest book in my big NCIS/SGA crossover.

Chapter Index for Lions and Plots and Ancestors, Oh My by

The new Claimings book, Affiliations, Aliens and Other Profitable Pursuits, is now available at Amazon and most romance sites.

A desire for status has brought Ondry and Liam to a human world to trade, but dealing with humans has brought up all the old pain in Liam’s heart. Even though Ondry would do anything to protect his beloved palteia, he doesn’t know how to protect Liam from himself. Worse, Ondry isn’t sure how to shield Liam from the shifting politics on the Rownt ship where the Calti Grandmothers are nothing like the ones they left behind on the planet.

With everything in their lives changing, Ondry and Liam have only each other. If Ondry can’t find a way to defend Liam from the ghosts of the past and overcome the impossibly short life span of a human, their small family might be over long before either of them is ready to let go. Ondry has always been a dominant and possessive Rownt, and with Liam in danger, those traits are necessary as he challenges the world to protect his lover.
