This is what I've been working on today - the beginning of Chapter 10 of King's Courtesan (an alternate universe retelling of the Lord of the Rings).  Since it's more than my word minimum, I'm using it as my entry today.

I'm in a bad mood, the baby is (mostly) asleep on my lap, and my husband is passed out in bed after a day of partying while I baby-wrangled.  Yes, these three things are connected.  So, instead of a venting journal entry (be happy you were spared), I'm posting a fanfiction drabble.  Woo!

Title: Burn
Series: Lord of the Rings
Character/Pairing: Legolas/Elrohir 
Rating: G
Notes:  Written for [livejournal.com profile] 31_days  prompt December 5th 2008 “glorious eyes that smile and burn”

Though he would never admit it, Elrohir doubted the Quest would succeed.  If it failed, Legolas would fall as well, this he did not doubt.  Thus, when Halbarad and his Rangers rode to join Aragorn's company, Elrohir rode at their side.  He stood beside Legolas on the Paths of the Dead, on Pelennor Fields, as he faced the hordes in Mordor.  In the midst of blood and darkness and death, in the presence of evil, there was but one spot of brightness.  Even in the deepest dark, he saw Legolas eyes - glorious  eyes that smile and burn with vengeance, with promise.

[Error: unknown template qotd] I wouldn't go so far as to call myself a 'shipper.  I have pairings that I like, but I don't feel like they are the One True Pairing.  A few of my guilty (and not so guilty) pleasures:

From Buffy and Angel:
    Spike/Willow
    Spike/Xander
    Spike/Wesley

From House:
    House/Wilson

From Lord of the Rings:
    Legolas/Elrohir

From Pirates of the Caribbean: 
    Jack/Will

From Tombstone:
    Doc Holliday/ Wyatt Earp

I've been thinking a lot about fanfic lately - longing to write some again.  I've been missing my fanfic writing buddy [livejournal.com profile] mellymalthen  as well.  I've got several fics in progress, two from LotR, one from Pirates of the Caribbean (which will probably never be finished).   I have a Spike/Xander plot bunny that's been nibbling the edges of my brain for months.  And I've got a random Ed Vedder fanfic started as well.  Shh, that's even more embarrassing than the rest, though I don't know why.  After all, I've written band-fic since before I knew what fanfic was.  Some of my earliest forays into writing were stories I made up about Jon Bon Jovi adopting a little girl.  Yeah, they were *horrible*.  I also wrote Sherlock Holmes fanfic, North and South by John Jakes (I was in love with Patrick Swayze, what can I say?) fanfic, and -once- Thundercats fanfic. I'm blushing as I type.

There's something freeing about writing fanfic.  Maybe it's the knowledge that whatever I write will never be publishable, since the character's aren't mine.  Or maybe it's the instant gratification of being able to make these pairings work, make them plausible even if they're something the original creator never intended.
