yo, i'm still "active." mostly on twitter.
twitter / @screamlet (i probably use this too much)
ao3 / screamlet (i'll crosspost here)
email / screamlet at gmail

Usually I call twitter a wasteland, but this week it's provided me with so much amusement:
- "maybe haraldson can be a METAPHORICAL villain, like the spirit of consumerism! or ryan lochte!"
- tunalock
- fake vikings spoilers designed solely to fuck with me
- that asshole on vikings (you know, in an adorable and loving way)
- chris pine having sex with cannolis (but first asparagus and chicken piccata omg baby corn)
- all the forms a Vikings Little Mermaid AU could take
- the AO3's fundraising drive and how best to cause waldorph pain


yuletide reveals!

hey girl
Oh, yuletide, you were hard his year. I defaulted on my main assignment for the first time ever (lesson learned: NO, SERIOUSLY, SCREAMLET. DO NOT LIST FANDOMS YOU ARE NOT 110% SURE ABOUT.) and then ended up writing the three stories below!

In Pursuit of Happiness (7924 words) by screamlet for waldorph
Fandom: Kings
Rating: Mature
Warning: Major Character Death
Relationships: Jack Benjamin/David Shepherd, Michelle Benjamin/David Shepherd
Characters: Thomasina (Kings), Rose Benjamin, Ephram Samuels, Original Characters
Summary: And hey, I'm not the kind / To fall in love without good reason /And if that's a crime /Then baby I'm committing high treason. (Or: Michelle has left and Jack… hasn't.)

So! I've never writte Kings before; actually, I hadn't even seen the show until November when those enablers known as all of twitter (ok lanyon and aliassmith) were like YEAH IT'S TOTALLY GREAT ALSO YOUR HEART WILL DIE and then it did and then I wrote this and ruined waldorph's life in the process. OOPS.


The Disorient Express (4115 words) by screamlet for lanyon
Fandom: Political Animals
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters Thomas "T. J." Hammond, Margaret Barrish, Douglas Hammond, Anne Ogami
Summary T.J. thinks he'll blame youth-obsessed Western culture for making him ashamed to admit that his grandmother is his best friend.

God, I don't even know This is one of those stories where (like I told lanyon when commenting on one of her own) that it asked more questions than it answered, mostly about where TJ could go from the series finale. Ugh, stupid Political Animals, being all great and stuff with its world building. ANYWAY. It's amazing when a character's voice is so distinct that falling into their delivery and language feels like the easiest thing in the world, and that was definitely the case with Ellen Burstyn's salty grandma. Screeeeeeam.


a spring fling (5707 words) by screamlet for withthepilot
Fandom: Marvel Avengers Movies RPF, Actor RPF
Rating: Mature
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships Chris Evans/Scarlett Johansson, Scarlett Johansson & Jeremy Renner
Characters: Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Elsa Pataky, Chris Hemsworth
Summary New York City, where every weekend is marathons of Halo and the coming of the Thor baby. (Definitely next in that "avengers cast does ridiculous shit" series that starts with "the one where they beat up barflesquat swashbuckle.")

I knew that, at some point, I would be writing Avengers RPF for yuletide, but I didn't know for who or why or when or how; then, Saturday the 22nd, I sat down and wrote this in a fugue state, which you can definitely mark by Tom Hiddleston's progression in the story from "hello people, I am humon" to everything else he says in the story. Also, there's ScarJo POV and awkwardness with babies and gift-giving anxiety and Sebastian Stan has a cameo so that I could say he appears in some form IN EVERY STORY I WROTE THIS YEAR. (WHY? DO I LIKE HIM THAT MUCH? OK??)


hey girl
hi there, yuletide writer!
Hello! Thanks so much for participating in Yuletide! Ok that sounds like a "welcome to murderhouse" thing to say, but Yuletide is amazing and my favorite fandom challenge, so I'm glad we're in this together, haha. I'm so excited to read whatever you end up writing.

fic: at the end (and beginning) of the war

hey girl
at the end (and beginning) of the war (19.5K words) 
Fandom: Marvel Avengers Movies Universe, Thor (2011)
Rating: Mature
Warning: Graphic Depictions Of Violence, Major Character Death
Relationships: Loki/Sif/Thor (and all combinations therein)
Summary: “There’s two things I don’t think about anymore: the beginning of the war and the end of it.”

AU | When Sif was very young, she was sent to be fostered in the house of Odin and raised with his two sons, Thor and Loki. When they grew up and the time came for Thor to take the throne, they assured each other that nothing would change—and then Sif declared war on her family.

Notes: Written for the summer 2012 avengers_rbb challenge with lilly_akame's excellent mix as a prompt. The story's roots are in the Thor movie, but squint and you'll spot influences back to the Norse Poetic and Prose Eddas and, because I'm a shameless nerd, the Homeric epics as well. You could read this as the story of Helen of Troy if Helen decided Mycenae was too damn small for her ambition and launched those thousand ships herself. Or, it's the story of three siblings who loved each other much more than the kingdom they swore to protect.

The Annual Stark Family Fourth of July Celebration (5801 words) by faviconscreamlet
Fandom: The Avengers (2012), Marvel Avengers Movies Universe, Iron Man (Movies)
