nrgburst: (Johanssen NoYes)
Dear Spacer,

Thanks so much for making something for me! Very excited to participate in this swap!

I’m NRGburst everywhere- here’s my tumblr and AO3 if you want to get a look at things I like. 

I don't usually read: A/B/O, mpreg, modern AUs, crossover/fusions, kidfic.

I’m okay with any amount of romance/sex, from just acknowledging a mutual attraction with barely touching hands to PWP to married.

No non-con, character death or character bashing please.

I prefer things that have lots of female character POV. Missing scenes or canon fix-its are right up my alley! Details like callbacks and parallels make me really happy when I find them in canon, fic or art. I also like scientific/medical realism, worldbuilding details (including acknowledging the social networks characters belong to) and humor. As for tropes: I like happy/hopeful endings, friends to lovers, first/last time, grand sacrifices for others, reunions, and mutual pining.

I adore nicely structured fics. 5+1s, fics with epistolary breaks, intersecting character arcs, etc. And if your work has me analyzing, I will probably comment more than once! 


The Martian details )MCU details (basically Gamora please) )


Hidden Figures )

I think that's it! Feel free to comment via anon if you need clarification/more details. Looking forward to seeing what you make! <3

Happy New Year! Starting off the year with the [community profile] snowflake_challenge .

Day 1

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. 


I have 77 GIFsets and 7 fics to choose from in 2016, but I'll focus on 3:


The Martian: Newton's First Law

I'm really proud of this three parter fic because it has a great structure and heart. Also, the theme and conflicts are as science-y and detail oriented as the canon. Plus the love declaration in the second bit is pretty moving. ("This is what falling in love looks like.") I also tried writing in epistolary style for the third chapter and I LOVED IT. 10/10 would do again. Newton's First Law also does what canon (and fandom) doesn't: it focuses on the rest of the Ares 3 crew and the ground crew (although Watney is very much in character thoughts), it fills in that "7 MONTHS LATER" gap, and it challenges fanon theory about keeping Beck/Johanssen secret. I know Watney is everybody's fave, but I think even Weir understated how heroic the crew really were to come back for him.

The Originals: Dear Destiny, F*ck You

I'm proud of this GIF set because of the way the poem and the scenes match up so perfectly. (Also look at that crisp resolution and how I flipped and then merged two GIFs in the 6th!) I think even the text placement makes symbolic sense. 


Moana: Smitten

I was leery of writing this at first because I was really worried about disrespecting the tone and theme of the film. It's SUCH a fantastic movie, with themes about self concept and determination, the importance of family/culture and relationship arcs between family and friends. The heroine is fourteen, she doesn't need a love interest

But just as Moana itself solves a historical puzzle (Why did Polynesian explorers stop for 1000 years and then start again?) by mashing up Polynesian myth with an incredible OC, Maui's death myth seemed to be begging for a Disney-fied solve. One does not simply walk into Death's obsidian-toothed vagina without consent. (Also why the hell would he have expected to come out of her mouth? Wrong hole, dude.) Plus I love flipping prophecy on its head and canon fix-its.

nrgburst: (Beck YES)
Title: Coming to Rest
Fandom: The Martian (Andy Weir)
Characters: Chris Beck/Beth Johanssen, Melissa Lewis, Venkat Kapoor, Annie Montrose, Mitch Henderson, Bruce Ng, Alex Vogel, Rick Martinez, Amy Beck, OFCs
Rating/Warnings: T, language
Word Count: 9000 or so
Summary: Because "The Icarus Maneuver" would have been way more accurate. (And the pretending comes to an end.)

This is the final part of Newton's First Law, and it's focused on what happens on the Hermes in the missing 7 months while Watney is making the rover mods. It's not as shippy as the first two chapters, and is easily readable as a standalone one-shot.
