So...I guess I'm vidding now? I've been feeling a lot of Kara/Lee angst lately. You know, mad at the writers and shit. The usual. And there's a vid contest for femslash pairings at a comm I'm in...and then I was like, "Well, I don't know how to make videos, so I guess I can't do that." But then, you know, I Googled, "how to make fanvids." And now here I am. I didn't actually get around to making a vid for the femslash thing because I couldn't let go of this one song and how it made me feel about Kara and Lee...so I did a video for them instead. I torrented obtained through legal means seasons 1-4 of BSG so that I would have all the necessary clips. Anyway, this is incredibly far from perfect, but I'm tired, and it's the best I can do right now. I started it a coupla hours ago and here I am! I hope that you enjoy. Your feedback is appreciated, as I really had no idea what the *fuck* I was doing.

Title: Born from Night, Exhaling Fire
Author: letterstonorah
Rating: NC17
Characters: Kara/Kendra, Laura, mentions of Kat, Laura/Ellen
Word Count: 3500
Summary: Kara and Kendra take justice into their own hands.
Warnings: mentions of suicide, rape, sex

Author's Note: I meant for this to be much longer, much more fleshed out -- but I'd been sitting on this too long, and the emotional weight of writing it has become too much. So here it is! I hope it stills feel complete in a way. Note that I used the f-word in this. 'Frak' just doesn't do it sometimes (though it's still in here a time or two to keep the BSG flavor). 

Written for [livejournal.com profile] embolalia, who prompted for a fic about sexual assault in a military context.

Oh my gods. You guys. I suck. I turned a prompt that should've led to awesome porn into this totally angsty, un-porny ficlet? What is wrong with me? I DO NOT PASS UP OPPORTUNITIES TO WRITE PORNZ. Sigh. I'm just angsting all over the place and out of emotional writing steam? Or something?  [livejournal.com profile] n_e_star -- I'M SO SORRY. But I hope this suffices. 

SIGH. NC17, 500 words, blah blah blah. angel!Kara, warnings for suicidal ideation.

Horrified at the latest encroachments on the rights and freedom of women in the US?

Do charts like this freak you the fuck out? (Source)

Are you pissed off that your access to birth control is under attack? Or that some politicians are trying to enforce vaginal ultrasounds before abortions? Or that Santorum thinks your sex and body are his business? Starting to feel like we've taken a huge step backward in terms of women's advancement?


I know some people (understandably) don't have a Facebook, and this thing doesn't appear to have an off-FB site, but please take a look-see at THIS.

The deets:

On Saturday, April 28th, there will be a National Protest Against the War on Women.

This protest will be at every state capitol, plus D.C.

This organizing page has the links to each states' page (on the right sidebar, click "see more", and scroll down).

EDIT: They now have an off-FB page. We Are Woman March on Washington compiles all the Facebook groups, events, and pages.

I'm not the organizer of any of these events. I'm just another pissed off woman who's planning to attend.

This is so foul and awful and problematic, and who the fuck thought this was a good idea????

So I'm rewatching the Pegasus arc, and oh my gods -- it's so good. Cain, you crazy, sociopathic bitch!!! But I kind of love you! Oh my gods, Kara. Please keep making all of your adorable faces! And rock that short ponytail til you die, boo!!!! 

ETA: OH MY GODS. Cain, you totally want to frak Kara Thrace. Yes, yes you do. 

ETA: Laura!!! You are such a bad bitch sometimes! I can't even stand how badass you are. You're all like, "Bill, mofo, you need to kill Cain. RFN. Why are you still here with me flirting when you should be on Pegasus fucking Cain up?"

Title: And Whisper Some Silver Reply
Author: [livejournal.com profile] letterstonorah

Rating: R
Warnings: depictions of abuse, potentially triggering for depictions of sexual violence (read summary)
Summary: In the aftermath of her rape, Kara becomes friends with the new kid at school, Lee. Takes place senior year of high school. 

This is unbetaed so probably crawling with mistakes and awkward sentences. Sorry about that. I read it aloud with my boo, and I think we caught most of the errors and clunky prose. 

The title is a lyric from the song "The Guilty Ones" from the musical Spring Awakening.

ETA: This fic contains a very frank portrayal of rape; nothing too graphic, I hope, but it's certainly there.

Short PWP written for my lovely beta [livejournal.com profile] wicked_sassy, whom I adore. She knows this -- that I adore her. I mean, that's why I wrote her this fic. I don't write fic for people I don't have lots of good, happy, heart, warm feelings for. So yeah. Not even going to bother posting this to any comms, as I assume most of BSG fandom is uninterested in femslash judging by the dearth of it being produced? No worries. But some days I must fly my multishipper flag!!!! 

This fic is NC17. No warnings. Just girls gettin it on.

[livejournal.com profile] rirenec, I hope you enjoy. If I am not rewarded by Kara/Kendra smuggler fic, I will be heartbroken. 

girly smut! )

So I tried to post a fic on the first to bsg2003fics and I was told it would enter the moderation queue. Cool, I guess -- except that's absolutely never happened before? But whatever. I understand.

Then it's 48 hours later and it still hasn't posted...okay. Now I'm starting to think maybe it didn't pass the moderation checks? Like I did something wrong? But I didn't receive a message or email or anything. Also, other fics that were presumably posted after my fic would'e been appeared on the site? So I tried to get in touch with the moderator and they didn't respond (it's been 4 days since I messaged him/her I think?). I also emailed the address supplied on the profile page. Then I tried reposting, but "the maximum number of posts are in queue"...so I can't. And now I'm like, so can I never post anything on there ever again? I even tried posting from another account to see if maybe I'd been, like, blacklisted? I mean, I am black. I guess it would make sense in a cosmic linearity sort of way??? I don't fucking know. But maybe I'm just being paranoid!Nora. Is this actually totally common? I'm sure this is actually happening to everyone else, yeah?

Also, the person next to me in the Starbucks is smacking his gum so obnoxiously loud and do you think it would be okay if I cut him?

ETA: and he's barefoot and his feet stink. That is not allowed. That should totally not be allowed. Would it be okay to cut him TWICE?

Title: The Plasma of Excruciating Kisses
Author: letterstonorah
Rating: NC17
Characters/Pairings: Kara/Lee
Word Count: 5500
Summary: AU set on Caprica, in which there is hot frakking and art and sex.
Warnings: smut like whoa, a tad bit of angst,
Spoilers: Hmmm, nothing in particular? It's pretty AU, but pilots are still pilots, and the Twelve Colonies are still the Twelve Colonies.

This was betaed by the most lovely and brilliant [livejournal.com profile] wicked_sassy, who is pushing me to be less awful, something I greatly appreciate. Her criticisms and praise are always thoughtful, and she straight up WROTE a couple of sentences in here. 

Please, if you read, comment! It's so very nice to hear from you lovely folk, even just a couple of words.

The title comes from the poem "Poison" by the lovely Romanian poet Ruxandra Cesereanu.

On posting fic.

So, as [livejournal.com profile] wicked_sassy knows, I've got about a billion fics in progress right now.

1. This plotty-ish long thing that I've outlined at 20 chapters, which I've written two 4000ish words chapters for. The question is, how far ahead do I get before I begin to post it? Twice in the last couple of weeks I've started fics, only to get to the very last part to see that the writer hasn't updated in YEARS. This is sad, sad, sad. And I would never want to do that to any of my readers. I'm ridiculously good about finishing what I start, but I do understand how life is not always amenable to fic writing. That said, it is very hard to stay motivated to write something super long without the comments of readers to inspire and reassure. I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO. HALP. 

2. The other is this fic I've mapped at three parts. I've finished the first two parts and have just begun work on the first. The question is -- to post it all at once, or, perhaps, one chapter a day or a week, similar to how I did Wire Hanger

3. This angsty Lee jaunt that's kind of an academy!fic, kind of not. It has Kara and Lee in ROTC at a university in Caprica. It's one of those that's like -- is it different from all the other fic in the fandom to warrant finishing and posting? What makes fic stand out to people? I don't know. Part of fic is -- it's a thousand variations of canon basically...but I also highly value originality...though everything is obviously derivative. Sigh.

4. A Kara/Lee heist!fic because as much as I want to LOVE Leverage and White Collar, I just don't. Leverage, especially, is a great show, but that ZING feeling isn't there. So alas. I will get my heist fix from Kara/Lee being awesome! 

ETA: Also! My gift fic! 

Another note, I'm very interested in general in what kind of fic folks would like to see, with the understanding that Kara/Lee is my primary ship, Kara/Felix my secondary, and Kara with basically anyone my tertiary.
