Fic: A Dangerous Woman, 1/? (Avengers)

Title: A Dangerous Woman
Author: Aenaria
Rating: PG, for now at least.  Still haven't decided where it's going to go from here.
Spoilers: The Avengers and Captain America: The First Avenger
Summary: There's a woman running around New York City in 2013 with Peggy Carter's face - the same exact face she had back in 1945. Is it coincidence, or something more? Steve Rogers isn't quite sure. Unabashed Peggy/Steve reunion fic. No matter the fandom, I can't escape them...

The last thing I have time to do right now is write, but somehow I still managed to start this piece and dive headfirst right into a new fandom (where I'm still fascinated by the idea of reunion!fics.  Whatever, I love them and I don't care).  Why am I so busy?  I'm actually going to be moving in a few weeks out of Rhode Island and back to the dear city of my birth, Brooklyn, NY.  Which, coincidentally, is where a lot of this story takes place.  Maybe that explains it, but it could also be the mad, passionate obsession with the Avengers that kicked in after I saw the movie - and then proceeded that same night to hit up every Redbox I could find to grab all of the prequels.  And while he's not the usual sort of hero I go for (I've always had a history of going after the so-called anti heroes), the story of Captain America fascinated me the most.  And, all right, it didn't hurt that he's damn easy on the eyes (that introductory scene in the boxing gym?  YUM).  Needless to say, fanfic was almost an inevitability.

(And man, do I really need to update my icons.  I don't think I've put new ones in there for years...)

Castle Fic: Palm to Palm, Part Two

Title: Palm to Palm, Part Two
Author: Aenaria/io_aenaria
Characters/Pairings: Castle/Beckett
Word Count: about 2800
Rating: PG
Spoiler alert: S4 Finale "Always"
Summary: Sometimes all you want is a hand to hold. Kate Beckett, Richard Castle, and a conversation the morning after the season four finale ends. In chapter two, Jim Beckett makes his own statements on the matter.
Author's Notes: I had thought that the story was complete, but I might have been jumping the gun a bit. Someone had brought up the idea that Castle's little line could have caused a bit of unneeded worry on the part of Beckett's father, and the muse just couldn't let it be. So here's part two, in which Beckett tells her dad. About some things, at least. Not all of them. Not yet. Remember, feedback is love, and any tips and critiques you have to help me improve my stories are always appreciated. More author's notes about the future of this story after the fic...

Thank you for reading!

Last Night's Castle

Here be spoilers, but slightly vague as some extrapolation may be needed to figure out exactly what I'm talking about. But still, if you don't want any clues, turn back NOW.

Dear Castle Producers: thank you for not putting me through the years of grief and agony that The X-Files did. Whatever you told Rob Bowman, it's obviously working. :D

On the other hand...I gotta wait til fall now?!?! *sob* That's it, must start in on fanfic...

Seems like a good ideal right now...

Ganked from somewhere:

Ask me a question about one of my fanfics or fanfic series. It can be absolutely anything in any fic and I will tell you the honest answer (even on the progress/plans for next chapters of current series).

Don’t hold back. Whatever you ask, I'll answer truthfully and as completely as possible. You can also ask about my writing as a whole, if you like.

Now that the muse has finally returned from her little year-long vacation, let's really get back into the swing of things. Ask away, and bring it on. :)

X-Files section of, you let me down. Can we say 'holy crap out of character'? *facepalm*

Yeah, I know I disappeared off the face of the earth again. The Aenaria I. family's had a crisis filled few months. By some miracle, we got a happy ending though (and miracle's not a word I toss around lightly). Am working up to writing it down on paper, for my own sake and everyone else's. I'll get there eventually.

And I need a new job. Because mine sucks and I hate that it takes away my passion for writing, which is far more important to me than a paycheck. So people, talk up your towns, tell me why I should be looking for work there!

Love you all,

For my Doctor Who fans: anyone out there want to take on a long-term beta job for me?

I've got a prologue and first chapter written down, plus a pretty complete outline, so I feel safe in putting out for a call for a beta at this point. It's my standard fare-takes a left turn into AU halfway through S4 and doesn't look back. I'm basically looking for someone to spot plotholes and other nonsensical things I end up tossing in. If you're interested, drop me a line in this post. Thanks very much in advance!

It's Only Teenage Wasteland - Fanmix For Challenge #02 at the Mixed Volume Community

I have too much fun with fanmixes, despite the fact that I am the suck at artwork.

Fandom: Harry Potter/X-Files/Good Omens/Ashes to Ashes Crossover. Okay, I know it sounds convoluted, but go with it…I like to think it works.

Subject: Regulus Black and Samantha Mulder

Title: It’s Only Teenage Wasteland

Notes: This is actually based on a fanfic called Unintended that I’ve been working on for over five years – I’m dating myself here but I remember bringing the early pages of this fic to Lumos 2006. Bit of a while ago…Anyway, here’s the summary: They were supposed to die. All they wanted was peace after their short but eventful lives. For Regulus Black and Samantha Mulder, things didn't quite work out as they had intended. The sequel to "Consequences of Bloody Manchester," which was the original, truly cracked out crossover and basically implied that the demon Crowley was Sirius and Regulus Black’s biological father. This story, while still utter crack, took it in a bit of a different direction. It’s partly posted at this point, at least on The songs were chosen to reflect the plot of the fic, mostly, however the atmosphere of the songs was an important deciding factor as well. Even with that in mind I still ended up with a huge mix.

Be warned, I suck at cover art. I’m still in a learning curve with Photoshop programs.
25 songs inside, with lyrics below the cut. Thanks for looking!

Quick question

Would people be too mad if the next Sonnets story ended up being a bit of a kidfic? I can't shake the idea, and while in my head it seems like the inevitable next step in the series, it may not be the best way to take the story. Figures though, the first inspiration I get in about eight months, and it ends up being kidfic. Story of my life...

I know it's a little late (had a bit of a bad patch over the last few months and LJ just sort of fell by the wayside) but thank you to everyone who commented on the original story I posted!

This picture's of a bar in my town that's around the corner from my place. The Doctor Who fan in me gets a kick out of it every time I go past.

We've also got a 4 Privet Drive here too. I wonder what other fandomy things we can cram into this eight square mile town (mind you, two of those squares are water so it's really only about six miles)?
