Links to art from handypolymath , and then it sat and yelled at me because I kept ignoring it. And then we acquired a baby and finishing anything was just a hilarious exercise in frustration.
How I Finished My Shit:
Not finishing things was starting to make me feel like a failure (as opposed to normal when I just kind of feel bad and get over it). When the opportunity for the WIP Big Bang arose, this piece seemed doable (and was one of the few solo things I was working on that had enough written to really seem like a piece with a story, not just vague notes and mindless boning). I signed up, bullied handypolymath into signing up with me to keep me on track and the delightful red_b_rackham signed up to create art. Which she did, so swiftly and skillfully that I knew I'd be an asshole if I didn't finish.
Between the two of them, I managed to eke out a story, and if it is at all coherent, it's because of the two of them.
Even if I couldn't get the assholes in story to kiss.

Fandom BBC Sherlock
Link Story: AO3 | Art: AO3 / DW / LJ
Summary The Holmes brothers come from a long line of powerful magic practitioners, but they are forced to keep their skills a secret. When Molly accidentally finds out about Sherlock’s powers and doesn’t turn away from him he slowly realizes that this pleases him, but soon enough he gets careless and is put in a position he would rather not be in, especially when others find out that she knows and attempt to use her as a pawn in their own games and machinations.
Warnings Mentions of attempted torture
Characters Sherlock Holmes, Mycroft Holmes, Molly Hooper, James Moriarty
Pairings None, though hints at possible Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper should there be a sequel
When I Started November 5th, 2015
How I Lost My Shit I kept getting stuck on this story soooo many times, as it was a commission that I had trouble with because of the magic elements (and the fact that Tumblr locked me out of my inbox for a year where the commission details were).
How I Finished My Shit I almost didn't. The past few months have been absolute hell and I literally did not write the last chapter or epilogue until last night, and I just posted the epilogue twenty minutes ago. My life has been full of health complications that almost kept me from finishing but I was bound and determined to finish because of the beautiful art I had been given (seriously, it's stunning) and because this was a commission that deserved to be finished.
Art Title: Feeling Strangely Fine
Fandom: Sherlock BBC
Bragging Rights: I been meaning to do art for one of the many scandalbaby fics, and I was so happy to be able to do it for this one. It was such a lovely romantic fic and I hope that one day she does a sequel to it.
Warnings:NSFW. Nudity, adult situations
Bragging Rights:My first vid! Even though my author sadly had to drop out, I have been wanting to try vidding and thought I could manage a 30 sec trailer, so I did this as part of the art for her story. She encouraged me to go ahead and post and I honestly had so much fun with this that I thought, okay.
Bragging Rights: Wow, ok. This could have gone so wrong because I thought I still had time to finish the art. Fortunately, my muse decided that it was the right time to wake up. I can now show you the art I made for Reeby10's fic! I hope you enjoy it! :)

Art Title: The Littlest Untruth
Fandom: Sherlock (TV)
Bragging Rights: You know, I don't think I've done any Sherlock art, so it was nice to break into that side of the fandom. It was wonderful to work with Scandalbaby/afteriwake, and she should be proud of her story, The Littlest Untruth. If you like Molly/Sherlock, do go check it out.

Fandom:Marvel Cinematic Universe
Bragging Rights: I was very excited about getting to do this for Daria234, this my OT3 of the MCU, but then um, I lost almost all the original work 2 weeks before this was due, and didn't get a working computer back till a week after that, sooooo I guess I'm bragging that I manage to get something done. Consider this a half brag.

Bragging Rights: I was thrilled to be able to snaffle one of my favourite things to art for! Dark Angel and SPN crossovers are so rare they are like hen's teeth, and this story by the lovely loracine is especially good... I'm so glad she decided to complete it!
Fandoms: Blade:Trinity and Underworld
Characters: Hannibal King, Lucien, Drake, Asher Talos, Ana Somerfield, Viktor, Marcus Corvinus, Amelia, Raze
Warnings: Canon level violence and language.
Summary: Drake, son of the blood god La Magra, gifted his most loyal servants sips of his blood. 7000 years later he wakes in the modern world to find that he's accidentally created an entire race of vampires. His 'children' can't even walk in the sun without burning and are having problems taking care of a group of human hunters and a hybrid. He is most interested in the hunter, Hannibal King, who smells of his blood, but is NOT a vampire.
However, he isn't the only one interested in the secrets of Hannibal's blood. A second race evolved from his bloodline and Hannibal is stolen away by their king, Lucian, to be used in his war against the vampires.
Drake, Lucien and Hannibal all want the same thing, the elimination of the vampire race, but can they get along for long enough to accomplish it or will their differences inspire them to kill each other rather than their common enemy?

Fandom: Captain America, MCU
Link(s): story on ao3 with art and here's the art on tumblr
Summary: This is basically an escape from MCU angst, imagining how things would be if Bucky had indeed fallen from the train back in WWII but never became the Winter Soldier. After destroying the helicarriers in DC, Steve works with the other Avengers to stamp out hidden Hydra bases and finds Bucky: in cryofreeze but still very much himself. All the fun of a man-out-of-time getting used to the 21st century without any of that troublesome trying-to-kill-Steve stuff. Steve is ecstatic to have his best pal back, of course, but now he has to deal with his long-repressed feelings for Bucky. Much longing ensues.
Warnings NC-17 for m/m sex
Characters: Steve Rogers, James “Bucky” Barnes, Peggy Carter, Tony Stark, Sam Wilson, Bruce Banner, Natasha Romanov, Clint Barton
Pairings: Steve Rogers/James “Bucky” Barnes
When I Started: summer of 2014
How I Lost My Shit: After I started writing my first Captain America series, which was a little more angsty (angsty for me anyway – though not in the general spectrum, not by a long shot!), I wanted something fluffy to work on at the same time. So I started this story. It was my fix-it for Winter Soldier angst. But I am not a huge fan of AUs, and as I wrote I started wondering why I was doing this, and the entire thing fizzled.
How I Finished My Shit: I was working on the for so damn long (off and on) that Captain America: Civil War came out, and that actually inspired me: this story became a fix-it for Civil War angst too, and Tony became a bigger part of the story, helping out instead of becoming an adversary.
Warnings: Shirtless young men! Women in plain dress!
Bragging Rights: It was outstanding to work with Wowbright again; this story has filled my summer with joy. I made too much art! I want to make more! Large versions of each graphic are also posted to my LJ!

Bragging Rights: birdthatlookslikeastick and I hacked together a lot of fun bits and pieces to make these - neither of us have really done anything like this before, so it was great to experiment and put things together.
