spock: logic is sexy

Drabble fest and WIP check-in

boosette posted some intriguing drabble prompts at where_no_woman. There are already some intriguing stories, like this one about Kira Nerys and freedom, and this sexy and evocative snapshot of Kirk/Chapel.

I feel frustrated because it's been so long since I've finished a story. By which I mean a *real* story and not just some commentfic or meme answers. Every night, I come home and think I might finish something, but instead I add or subtract a few sentences and run out of inspiration. I have so many things going on!

(a) B is for Bread Pudding, a response to the alphabet meme I posted quite awhile back. It's all about this secret recipe George Kirk has for bread pudding, and the first scene, which is about him using it to seduce Winona, is almost done. I could just leave it at that and post it and it would be cute and banter-y, and it would also give me that nice satisfied feeling of having a story done. But I had originally planned two more scenes, one with Winona trying to piece the recipe together after George's death and one with her making it for Jim after he comes back alive from the whole Narada thing. I feel like that is a story with more integrity, but I'm afraid that if I try to achieve all that, it will become one of those stories I work on for five months and then get incredibly sad when it doesn't get zillions of comments.

2. Weapon of Choice is a Sulu genfic that I started for secretsolitaire a month ago. She asked to hear about Sulu's first love, which was naturally his sword. It needs just one paragraph to be complete, but the perfect ending is eluding me. I am telling myself to be patient, but it is hard.

3. Remix fic, which is naturally a secret

4. LGBT fest fic, which barely has anything at the moment

5. I really, really want to write porn about Number One giving Pike the blow job of his life, but I am having trouble getting started. I always want to write porn right after I've had sex, but naturally, I can't do it then, and then the inspiration eludes me.

6. At some point, I need to start my het_idcrack. I know I want it to be abotu Number ONe rescuing Pike while he is all tied up, and then he realizes he likes being at his first officer's mercy, so he asks her to tie him up the next time they go to bed together. I really, really need to start this one because writing porn takes me *forever* (and so does writing het, to be honest), but I am having a hard time finding the words.

Oh, this. I have such a hard time with porn sometimes, and every so often I'll hit on the perfect turn of phrase at an...inopportune moment. I would keep a notebook on my bedside table but I do not think that would go over well.

My het_idcrack was going swimmingly until I reread the prompt and realized it really seems to want plot and I have...porn. With sort-of plot, but mainly porn. Sigh.
I think het_idcrack is the sort of fest for which you could justifiably write a bunch of porn and it be okay. Anyway, it's not a gift exchange, and also who is unhappy about reading a bunch of porn?
Oooh, no. 6 sounds very, very hot!

Right after sex? Hm, don't you need to go to the bathroom anyway so you could jot down a couple of words to remind you of the inspiration then?
Actually, I don't really need to go to the bathroom after sex usually. Maybe to clean up sometimes, but I feel like my boyfriend would notice an absence long enough to write stuff...
I need to get back to your email, but in the mean time:

*GRABBY HANDS AT EVERYTHING*


(For what it's worth I think writing the other two scenes on Bread Pudding would be totally worth the wait? But I am also hideously selfish.)
I worked on the bread pudding a little bit tonight. I am challenging myself to have self-discipline and wait to post until the story is actually finished.

I AM DEEPLY, DEEPLY IN FAVOR OF THIS.
