fall fic finally finished

Finished and posted, so I can finally stop wondering if it will ever happen! Title: Run the Mountain Author: marcicat Fandom: Rise (2018), Power Rangers (2017) Rating: T (language? the crisis of American youth?) Summary: “I don’t need superpowers, I need a steady income and a passing grade in History.” Note: Imagine an AU where […]

how time flies

Friday, September 7th, 2018

I’ve set a goal to be done with the fic I’m working on by the end of this month. Since I started it back in — March? I can’t even remember anymore — it feels like it’s time. So far in September I’ve written two sentences. Now, I’m no math genius, but looking at the […]

someday, maybe someday

Tuesday, August 21st, 2018

I have been “working on” the same fic since March. I use that term loosely. Words were written in March. And words were written in August. Some words were also written between those times. It is possible none of the words follow a coherent narrative thread. Someday I would like to be done working on […]

fic post Friday

Friday, May 4th, 2018

Sometimes I get picky about things like ‘how many things I have sitting in my email drafts folder,’ and I make an attempt to get them to a better home. In related news, I started working on a Power Rangers (2017 movie) fic back around April of last year. Not-so-coincidentally, it was chilling in my […]

birthday eve

Sunday, January 21st, 2018

I was thinking about how birthdays, and that made me think about how I write a lot about Christmas but not birthdays, and I was trying to remember if I’d *ever* written about a birthday. Then I thought about cake and immediately remembered that yes, I have! In Monday All Day Long, Armored Adventures Tony […]

NaNoWriMo 2017: Every Dawn a Miracle

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Uh, yeah, so, nanowrimo was a thing that happened this year. Somewhat unexpectedly, and almost entirely because I am incapable of letting some things go. So that’s where Hocus Pocus came in, and then if you’re going to have one magical animal, you might as well go big or go home, right? So, crossover with […]

nano day 8

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Word count as of 6:30 am: 11,043 Personal goal word count for today: 13,000 Me @ me: Don’t you feel even the tiniest bit bad about stealing a line from one of your own stories to be the title of your nano novel? Also me: Nope.

this is not a drill

Wednesday, November 1st, 2017

NaNoWriMo has arrived! My approximate thoughts as I begin: ‘Okay, file is open. I’m going to need a title. Wait, did I already pick a title? I remember creating a new novel on the nano site, probably I titled it, right? I wonder what it was. I hope it was something long. Clearly it wasn’t […]

writing Wednesday

Wednesday, January 4th, 2017

Pretty much as soon as I finished nanowrimo last year, I wanted to write the missing scene with the matching t-shirts. So I did. Title: Matching Author: marcicat Fandom: Independence Day, Independence Day Resurgence Rating: G Characters: Jake Morrison, Charlie Miller, Rain Lao, Alicia Cade, Dylan Dubrow-Hiller Wordcount: 1000 Summary: The matching t-shirts missing scene […]

2016 Year in Review: Writing

Monday, December 26th, 2016

An easy one! I only wrote two fics this year: the Star Wars story that wouldn’t end, and my nanowrimo story. 1. This Family Just Keeps On Getting Bigger, by marcicat Summary: Han shows up as a ghost, and starts to realize he missed a lot more than he thought in those fifteen years he […]
