beatrice_otter: All true wealth is biological (Wealth)
[personal profile] beatrice_otter
Story Title: The Genetics Factory
Fandom: Criminal Minds/Stargate
Link(s): On AO3, on Dreamwidth
Summary: In Detroit, homeless addicts are turning up dead. But there's more to the case than meets the eye, and the BAU finds themselves looking for something they don't understand. For Derek, it gets personal.
Warnings: none
Characters: Derek Morgan, Savannah Hayes, David Rossi, Paul Davis, Jennifer Keller
Pairings:Derek Morgan/Savannah Hayes
When I Started: The idea for this fic came almost a decade ago when I saw the CM episode where JJ's kid was born and Derek held him and I went, "awwwww." And I started daydreaming kidfic ideas. Which tripped and fell into a vat of SG plot bunnies (a common occurence, back then, and even now, given how much I love SG1) and the whole amalgamation has been floating around the backbrain ever since. I have no idea when I actually started writing it, but it turned almost immediately from the fun kidfic I had planned into a casefic. And there it stalled, because I am not good at writing casefic. I mean, I'd noodle away at it occasionally (even long after I stopped actively watching CM), but nothing came of it. (I work much better with deadlines.)
How I Lost My Shit: big bunny, no deadline to make me concentrate on it, too many other bunnies distracting me.
How I Finished My Shit:Then came WIP Big Bang, and I considered what WIP I might try to finish, and this was the one I had been noodling away at most recently, so I figured, what the heck. It was something like 10k words at the time? IDEK. I thought it might, maybe, take another 10k words. And then I started seriously writing it. And then, as I was wondering how the heck to join the kidfic bit with the casefic bit, I did some wikisurfing and found out that Derek has gotten married and had a kid in the meantime! Which I love, and was able to use to great thematic effect. Thank you, CM writers, for having Derek settle down with a wonderful woman, and thank you, Shemar Moore, for suggesting it. It was very useful to this fic.

Story Title:
The Lucian Alliance Heist
Fandom: Stargate SG-1
Summary: The Lucian Alliance are working on something big, and SG-1 go on a mission to find out what. (Set between S10E09 Company of Thieves and S10E15 Bounty.)
Warnings None
Characters: SG-1, as per Season 10, so Cam, Daniel, Teal'c, Sam and Vala
Pairings: None
When I Started: It must have been some time last year, because that's when I finally watched the last two seasons of Stargate and fell in love with Cam. I had an snippet of an idea and wrote the first scene of a story from Cam's point of view, and was really excited about writing it.
How I Lost My Shit: Somehow, after the first scene, I just stopped. That scene was really cool, but it presented me with a story that needed a whole lot of plot, and I'm really not that good with plot, so I ground to a halt and never got back to working on it.
How I Finished My Shit: I'm pretty sure this story never would have been finished if it wasn't for WIP Big Bang, and it certainly wouldn't have been as long and involved, as 7,500 words is a lot for me! But having a minimum word count and a deadline was extremely motivating, so I just knuckled down and got on with it - and I'm really happy with the result. Plus, Loracine's art is amazing! So, many thanks to all for the support and the structure to get this done!
