Master List of Elizabeth Culmer's Fiction


General Disclaimer: These stories are based on characters and situations created and owned by other people and corporations. I make no money from this borrowing of intellectual property, and intend no copyright or trademark infringement.

Organization: This list is organized primarily by fandom; within each fandom, it's arranged first by associated story cycles and then by writing date. Word counts and writing dates are approximations.

Content/Warning Policy: 1) I am not consistent about warnings! I use them when I remember, for a few relatively broad categories of potentially problematic content, but if something is off-page, non-explicit, or generally backgrounded, I probably won't think to note it in the metadata. 2) The things I try to warn for are explicit sex, rape, murder, torture, cannibalism, incest, depression/suicide, familial dysfunction, and occasionally also societal dysfunction (aka dystopia). Sometimes I just slap a general content warning on all my fic for a given fandom and don't label each individual fic. I also don't generally warn for violence, unless the violence in a fic is dramatically out-of-step with the violence in its source canon. 3) I don't use any content rating system unless I'm posting to a site or community that requires or encourages ratings, because I find movie-style ratings counter-intuitive when applied to written fiction, and not particularly useful for anything other than denoting the presence of explicit sex, which I already note in the metadata.

Quality Rating System: I've marked my favorite stories with asterisks, on a scale of 1 to 4. The more asterisks, the more I like the story. This doesn't necessarily mean that stories without asterisks are bad, just that I don't like them as much. Also, I am not claiming to be an arbiter of taste; you may love stories I dislike, and vice versa. I am just providing a heads-up about the ones that I think are best written and/or most interesting.

Where To Read: What I post on my journal tends to be the equivalent of a beta draft. If I have cross-posted a story literally anywhere else (except Tumblr; fic content there is just a mirror of fic content here), read the version that isn't on my journal. Versions on AO3 are definitive. If there is no AO3 version, read the ff.net version. If there is no ff.net version, read the FictionAlley version (only applicable for HP fic). Failing that, read the journal version, because that's the only one there is.

Kitchen table garden update!

The narcissus are, as is the way with flowers, beginning to wilt a little. One of them is also starting to get very floppy about the leaves. Alas! Still, there are some unopened buds and hopefully I will get a few more blossoms before they wither as all things do.

Meanwhile the Lazarus pepper still has that last tiny bud, which has not shriveled and fallen off. It doesn't really look like it's going to bloom, either, but what the heck.

The decapitated pepper is going to get harvested tonight. :) If I am on top of things, it will also get turned into fajita filling tonight, but that part might end up delayed until tomorrow.

I was scheduled to give blood today, but unfortunately I've been fighting off an almost-cold for the past several days. (It wants to turn into a cold, but I keep getting just enough sleep and eating just well enough that it can't quite get a full foothold and remains at 'mildly annoying sniffle' level.) I figure that even though I'm perfectly functional, there is still enough rhinovirus floating around in my system that I should probably not be donating blood at the moment.

I have rescheduled for a drive on February 2nd. Hopefully that one will go better. *crosses fingers*

(Regularly donating blood is a small and relatively easy way to make the world a better place, incidentally. If you are medically and mentally/emotionally able to do so, please look into blood drives in your area! There are never enough dependable donors.)

I couldn't make it to any of today's marches, alas, but my mom, my sister, and one of my aunts all participated in the Washington march. Some of my church youth group kids were also down in DC doing their part; Ithaca sent multiple busloads of people south this weekend.

Meanwhile Ithaca's own march attracted somewhere between 8,000 and 10,000 people (estimates vary), which was about four times the expected attendance, and very nearly a third of the city's total population -- which is doubly impressive considering how many people had gone away to DC. (I mean, we doubtless got people coming in from neighboring regions, but still.) I saw dozens already gathering on the Commons as I caught my bus this morning, and I wished I could have stayed instead of going to work.


ETA: I asked my relatives how the Washington march went, and Mom replied:

Huge. Heard nothing. March itself cancelled because route already full. People walked West anyhow when program- -which ran an hour late -- ended. We shuffled down mall and up 7th for several blocks but left for home. Restaurants in Vicky's area were swamped. Glad to be there. Jan made it. Impossible to meet up with folks. Very tired.


ETA 2: And this is what my aunt said:

Thanks for your report; sorry you couldn’t have joined in.

I came from home, got to the Smithsonian metro exit about 1:00. There were empty seats on the train but many people still buying tickets.) It was mobbed. People were marching down the inner street of the mall, parallel to Independence Ave. One person said the leaders told them to go to 14th and wait for the main march. I was able to wander freely because the whole mall between the streets was available. I walked to 14th and it was a standstill. I heard a drum band coming with the main march and it took them forever to make progress as it turned onto and continued on 14th to Constitution Ave where the march turned left toward the Ellipse. There were also Many people walking down the other inner street and Constitution toward 14th.

I saw no checkpoints to get in. There was a variety of law enforcement visible and helpful with information. I saw one what looked like a small tank on Constitution Ave. There was a Lot of pink and a Lot of hand held signs - sticks were not allowed. Only clear back packs were allowed. Saw many of those and clear gallon zip locks. I filled my pockets with the essentials and carried water in a shoulder holder. Some port a potties were locked but I found line with 15-20 people for 3 potties. I think some Pps were left from the day before and not rented by the march -- or were full?! I took pics of a few individuals with interesting garb. Saw disposable white jump suits that people autographed, an older lady with post-it all over and carried a megaphone, 3 with crocheted full length suits even over their faces - in pink flavored yarn. A fair number of kids of all ages and a lot of men.

The media trucks put up chain-link fences around them and their generators. Had telescoping cameras and Internet towers. There were a couple of places where I could not get a signal but communicated with Lessie OK. Instead of the hand wave one sees at ball games, there were cheering waves. Also small groups chanting. The weather was 50 something, cloudy, and damp.

As I left to find a Metro station I noticed that the perimeter of the march was well guarded with streets blocked with police cars or big trucks. There were long lines to enter the stations. Security people held marchers back so the platforms weren’t over crowed. I walked east, away from the mall, to find a blue train. Yea, I did at Capitol East and got a window seat. Train became packed and skipped two stops. The driver was very good with announcements to us and those on the platforms. She was upbeat and praised our cooperation. It took me and hour and 15 minutes to get to my stop – the end of the line.

The fic I am currently writing (a Cotton Candy Bingo fill/prompt ficlet for [tumblr.com profile] madamehardy) has been intensely frustrating -- not because the words won't come, but because I have spent several days flailing around trying to find where the story needs to start. See, every time I pick the wrong place, it unravels into interminable internal monologues, when it really needs to be about friendship and human connection. (...And running off to be hermits on neighboring mountains, but still; friendship!)

I finally got the main scene to start working when I unearthed a pesterlog from after an acre of internal monologue and copypasted it to be a sort of mini-prologue instead, but today I realized I still had about a zillion paragraphs of stuff that needed to get on the page but currently had no plausible way there except via more acres of internal monologue (not to mention the ending was going to feel weird and unbalanced unless it went back to pesterlogs, which... would be structurally kind of missing the point?) so I have had to back up yet again and tack on an opening scene with my POV character talking to some others in person and thereby show (rather than tell) some of the stuff that kept creeping into the interminable monologues.


I hate writing. I hate it passionately.

(Don't listen to me; I love it to pieces.)

1. Photographed my kitchen garden projects.

2. Put away laundry.

3. Brought empty recycling bins from curb to porch.

12. Figured out why the Cotton Candy Bingo prompt ficlet I've been trying to write hasn't been working, and started over with a new approach that seems to be going better so far. Hopefully I'll have that done and posted sometime this weekend. :)

1) six narcissus, two peppers (and a spider plant), Monday, 16 January 2017
2) two peppers, Monday, 16 January 2017

a small green pepper plant in a terracotta pot . two small ripening bell peppers, with human fingers for scale
3) the Lazarus pepper, still cheerfully doing nothing in particular
4) the decapitated pepper, which I will probably harvest later this week

As you can see, my kitchen table is pleasantly green. :) Most of the narcissus have opened their secondary flower clusters to at least some degree. I have also given every plant at least one stake -- a couple have two -- to keep them from falling over. That sort of floppiness is fine outside, especially when the plants are growing in a thick bank of flowers and can lean on each other to some degree, but it looks tacky indoors: hence stakes.

The Lazarus pepper still has that one tiny unopened bud, but it doesn't seem in any hurry to develop; I very strongly suspect it never will. The decapitated pepper is about ready to harvest, and in fact I plan to snip off those peppers on Thursday or Friday and use them to make another batch of fajita filling. We shall see how well that plan holds up in practice. *wry*

1. First shift of the year at Not the IRS! ...Where I sat around doing pretty much nothing for five hours, because most people don't have their documents yet, and even if they do, efiling is not yet open for state returns. *sigh* I did make a few phone calls, but that was it. (The mall office is closed this year, so we have to notify all clients who used that office that they should come to the plaza office instead.)

13. Touched up Mom's sixth picture frame -- by which I mean, I removed the masking tape (this was harder than usual, since the slight looseness of the frame meant that in several cases the tape was now a couple milimeters under the wood, and I had to pry it out with a knife blade) and applied a final coat of paint to problem areas. I will have to slice off a few bits that smudged over the glass in that process, but as with the laundry, I'll get to that Monday or Tuesday.
