Ooooh. Creepy. And I wonder if the cycle continued if she’d remember a little more each time, and who she’d try to reach out to and how as she did…

I like that this has the feel of being set early on/pre-cp in the series, before she’s got strong connections to people to turn to. Increases the dangerous sense of isolation. I like it.

:D

maria-m-art asked: So you're gonna procrastinate writing your Jessa fic by sorta writing other Jessa fics =P? Jessa + handcuffed together; I can't imagine the context, but it'd be so weirdly cute XD

her0ngraystairs:

definitely! :D

[[Post CA]] So, the Clave is super untrustful of Tessa and they want her under their watch every second, right? So, they want more people to live in the Institute to keep an eye on her. Obviously Charlotte does not agree and gets really angry with the inclination that they need that. So Consul Wayland (scheming bastard that he is) asks her, who is the most trustworthy person in the London Institute. He gives Charlotte like 5 seconds to answer and she says Jem.

Consul Wayland then tells Charlotte that either Jem is to stay with Tessa 24/7 documenting all the things she does, or she will be sent to live with the Lightwoods where they won’t object to surveying her every move. Charlotte says (after some arguing) that she’d prefer Tessa to stay in the London Institute. 

Charlotte doesn’t understand that this means handcuffs. This is like mid-day and they walk into the dining room where Tessa and Jem are having lunch together, along with Jessamine. The Consul asks them both to come with them and next thing they know they’re handcuffed together, Tessa’s right hand and Jem’s left.

They are outraged at first but the Consul leaves and Charlotte tells them what happened and they understand her actions. For the rest of the day Jem listens to Tessa ranting about how the Clave is being horrible. 

At dinner time, they try to ignore the suggestive jokes made by Will (I thought you enjoyed the concept of restraints, Jem?), the oblivious remark made by Henry ( Perhaps you two could find how to operate things one handed, while not diminishing any practicality.), The snotty attitude from Jessamine (It’s not as if you two are ever apart, anyway.) and the silence from Sophie.

Going back from dinner is another thing. First of all they have to decide on a room (Jem, I think it should be yours. It- It’s just you have your medicine in there and…), they have to both get into nightclothes (Tessa, have you any clue where Sophie has gone?-No, but perhaps we ought to change on both sides of the screen? - You’re tall, Tessa, but we may or may not have obstructions on our wrists. - Oh, right, umm… What do you propose we do then?), they eventually decide it might be easier for the time being just to stay in their clothes despite being uncomfortable, and deal with it in the morning. Let’s just say it is a long first night.

OMG. I LOVE IT.

At one point I was like… handcuffing a dude to a chick? What about Victorian propriety? But there’s an easy bypass: they don’t think of Tessa as a lady, but as a warlock. And that could be one thing that earns Jem’s sympathy.

And omg. Once they got the swing of things, I can imagine the Clave eating their own words and Jem reports back to them. “And at two-o-clock we played cards. At half-past three, we went for a stroll in the park and then fed the ducks… pet the cat… talked… read books—Gulliver’s Travels to be precise—” and it would all be so mundane and cutesy, and Will would snark through the whole thing, that eventually they’d drop it. :p

alohomorashlie:

Heyyoooo guys, question about fanfics for all of you!

So my friend has this Harry Potter fanfic she’s had in the works for a long time, and she kind of just needs some motivation to get things written, but she’s already thinking about how and where she’s going to to post it. It’s about the Black sisters and not EXACTLY canon-verse, it’s a little au. Anyway, the point is: we know NOTHING about fanfiction anymore.

Back in our day~~~ FF.net was the place to be~~ you know?

We know AO3 exists but have mostly seen that used for like, 1D and kpop fic and don’t know if there’s a niche there for Harry Potter or not.

So we’re asking you guys, because I have a lot of followers who are very into fic of the Harry Potter kind still: where do you read/post fic? what outlets SHOULD be considered for posting fic? She says she’s thought about using tumblr as an advertising platform and linking out and doing little snippets to help gain the following who will be willing to follow FOR links, but where do people post and look you know?

Should she look into setting up an LJ for it? Should she look into AO3? Do people still frequent FF.net? Are there places we don’t know about?

Please let us know! You can just drop me an ask/fanmail or reply to this if you have enough space. You can reblog it to add your own two cents. You can reblog this to spread the word and help get us more information, too! This is a very informal ~survey~ of sorts and we just need some information, so please help!

LJ is good for organization, though I don’t know that it’s still popular, per se. I recommend Sugarquill.net for HP fic specifically, and FF.net and A03 are still major fanfic areas. A03 doesn’t get a lot of review traffic, but is known to be a good place of find quality fic. FF.net quality is more dubious, but the reviews are more fruitful.

As for tumblr, I do post my fic here. But it is most likely a good idea to post in other places as well, because links are easily lost, and putting up with some of the crazy layouts people choose can be quite annoying.

secret-the-dissenter asked: Hi there Gidge! I was just wondering if you've seen the Amnesia ova yet? It's so very cute. If you haven't, please do. It's so cute.

It’s the ONLY time I’ve ever downloaded something with no hope of translation. And it’s so frustrating, because I only downloaded the raw out of pure impatience. I assumed their would be a subtitled version that would come out a week or so down the road, but to no avail. I can’t find a translation for it.

I know it’s cute. I can kinda tell that Ukyo got roped into their little stage drama and stuff, but I don’t know what they’re actually saying and it drives me a bit batty.

bookishdea asked: Hey... 1 or 10, Tim/Cassie? *grins*

  • bodyswap

They try not to make a big deal about it. They calmly tell their teammates what’s up (Tim was down for secrecy, but Cassie wasn’t, so they made a formal announcement.) But they still have to keep up public appearances, so Cassie helps Tim with her body’s makeup. It’s surprisingly soothing. Tim runs Cassie through his exercise regimen. Cassie takes notes for herself later. But she HATES the meds and vitamins.

They have one VERY awkward conversation about dealing with the fact that, yeah, they will have to go to the bathroom, shower, etc, and there will be nakedness and they’re like “Um, I trust you.” “Uh, same. Ack.” “Yup.”

They start getting worried when Zachary does the switch-back spell and it completely fails to do anything. So they have to wait for his cousin to come back from her JLA mission to try.

While Cassie Sandsmark is publicly Wonder Girl and can go off-grid for a while, Tim Drake-Wayne cannot. So Tim has to teach Cassie his media persona. They also freak out Damian, because he is not really accustomed to Drake’s insults coming from the mouth of an attractive female. So they basically have to live together, and grow closer as a result.

  • accidental baby acquisition

1. Gotta say the first thing that still comes to mind is OYL! Tim and Cassie accidentally acquiring a re-cloned!Kon. Either Tim’s cloning succeeds, or he and Cassie actually pool their resources to bring Kon back, but get a baby instead of a teen.

2. Though I can also seen an AU in which they are adults, and Tim has been Red Robin for several years. He’s made Wayne Tech’s stock rise high as anything, and he’s at the top of his game. But he’s lonely. He looks in the mirror and admits to himself that he’s lonely. And he’s terrible at bridging the gaps with his family. He sees them, but old arguments still come up, and Tim realizes that he wants to be loved unconditionally, something he doesn’t even believe in anymore, if he ever did. The only time it seemed real, was when he loved Dick and Bruce like that…. when he was a kid… and that’s how Tim comes around to the idea of adopting.

He tells people he’s thinking about it, though many of his family don’t take him entirely seriously. The Titans, however…

Cassie is leading a mission against an evil married couple, and when the Titans win, the antagonists accidentally die. That’s when she hears a toddler crying… Normally, it would be a bit tragic, but they could just send the kid to social services and be done. But the little girl has superpowers. As the most experienced baby-sitter (and heck, in some ways she babysits the younger Titans every day), Cassie takes temporary care of the tot upon herself. And once she remembers that Tim was looking to adopt, she considers it strongly… it’s true that Tim is trying to maintain a secret identity, and the kid is noticeably strong…. but he could manage, maybe? Right?

It takes a bit of time, but they arrange a meeting in Tim’s Gotham apartment. It’s a nicer reunion than either of them anticipated, since Tim hasn’t been an active Titan in a while. It feels good—really good—to catch up.

The little girl seems to like Tim, and Tim is enchanted by her. With a surprisingly heavy heart, Cassie prepares to say goodbye, takes her farewell hug, and leaves.

But she gets a call from Tim at 3 in the morning. Because the little one had a nightmare and is calling for her, and Tim needs to calm her down, difficult to do, since she just fractured his arm…

The tot is willing to stay with Tim, she just doesn’t want Cassie to LEAVE. As a compromise, Cassie promises to visit a LOT. There’s ultimately only so much difference between play date, and date…

afewnovelideas asked: Hope you have fun with this one: tim/tam "road trip"

I’m torn between 2 rather cracky concepts….

1) Dick tells Bruce that Tim needs a road trip. At first, Bruce is like “?” but Dick goes “It makes you unwind, and eases resentments, and it’s just a good thing. I learned it from the Titans. Pretty sure Tim needs one. But how to make him?” And Bruce is sold at “eases resentments” cause he feels he and Tim haven’t talked in forever. Unfortunately, he goes about it in a very Bruce sort of way and tells Tim “I’m taking away your credit cards. Here’s a gas card instead. And a list of pre-paid hotel suites. And a sensible economical vehicle. Go away.”

And Dick is like WHAT THE HELL???! But Bruce actually knows Tim well enough by now, and Tim is changed enough, that it wasn’t gonna happen by asking nicely. Unfortunately, the Titans are called off-world. Dick is freaking out, when Damian is like “I will deign to help you in this foolish endeavor and suggest female companionship. Even father seems to resort to that when he has a genuine desire to relax.” And Dick is like “You’re ten; you’re not supposed to—-omg. That’s a FABULOUS idea!” and he makes sure Tam’s schedule is clear.

And that is how Tim finds himself awkwardly holding the keys to a comfy Wayne Tech Hybrid, while Tam makes the best of things and hooks up her ipod to the sound system… and they gaze at the long road ahead…

2) Tim and Tam have a crazy day in both the boardroom and the street, when they find themselves at Tam’s room and she pulls out a bottle of wine. Tim’s like “Umm…” And Tam’s like, “We are are not in an American hotel, boss. This is Italy. Nothing illegal happening here. Join me.” And Tim’s like “okay.” and they get a little tipsy, and they talk about things that are “normal” for other people, but sound crazy to them. Legally racing on the Audubon instead of illegally on a Gotham street. Going to Disney Land without incident. Having a cheesy birthday party. Romantically running away together.

They start planning that last one. Jokingly at first, but then in more realistic detail. And then altering the plan to involve less planning and more spontaneity. Tim could cash his credit cards. There’s an old JSA transport two cities away that he could use to secret them away to Madrid. He has his Ducati stashed there. Tam’s got a few internet friends unconnected to Tim’s network who could put them up for a few days. And she knows a little Basque if they wanna hide in a few more obscure places…

It sounds crazier and crazier yet more and more doable, and the mood shifts from drowsy contemplation to energized excitement.

And they go.

Anonymous asked: 9 - tessa and jem :D

"be careful what you wish for…."

Why does this one bring on the cracky concepts?Post-Epilogue Jem wishes he had Will back. His baby first cousin five times removed, aka Emma, turns out to be Will’s reincarnation. Jem has to raise her and she is a hellion.

Edit: I just realized that one wasn’t very Jem/Tessa ish… hmmmm. Emma sometimes asks awkward questions, and Tessa has agreed to handle those that Jem declines to answer. Jem ends up abusing this gift. Tessa calls him out on it. Jem notes that Tessa may demand payback in sexual favors.

kiragecko asked: 5. Tim and Kon (unless you want to write me multiple chapters of number 3 - I think a short snippet will simply cause me pain)

Two ways this could go: 1) the handcuffs are magic. They are both cuffed against their will. I can easily see this as a prank from Mxyzptlk. The boys actually don’t freak out too much at first, because they trust that one of their magic teammates can figure it out and set them free, but it gets trickier the more they have to actually be together constantly throughout the day. Kon is constantly going to the kitchen. It annoys Tim even though he understands his bestie’s metabolism demands it. Tim needs to exercise to stay in shape to save people. Kon only exercises when he IS saving people. They have different taste in music. Different bathroom habits. The real kicker comes when Tim needs to take his antibiotic meds for asplenia. Because he hadn’t gotten around to telling Kon that he was even missing a spleen. And a quick X-ray confirms things…

2) They are normal handcuffs, and it’s Kon’s idea. Kon is convinced that Tim has not been spending enough time with friends having fun, so he will MAKE him spend time with friends by handcuffing him to his best friend. Tim pretends to gripe at first, but c’mon. He’s a BAT. The handcuffs are only remotely effective because he ALLOWS them to be…

her0ngraystairs asked: "pretending to be married/fake dating" with Jem and Tessa ^.^

I would do an AU of CP with Jem, Tessa, and Will spending a longer time at the Starkwheather house.

I squirmed in my seat when I read how Tessa clung to Jem in the room of spoils, and I would have more moments like that. Also, when Will and Tessa are talking, and Will’s like “You called out.” and Tessa’s like, “Not for you.” … I’d like to actually GO somewhere with that. Also, I’d have Aloysius forget that Jem and Tessa are “engaged” rather than married—senile as he is—and constantly leave them alone together or maybe even have his servants assign them to the same room unthinkingly.

matsuohka asked: uhhh. jem/tessa, 11

hmmm…. I’m torn. On the one hand, I could see a truth-or-dare game being set between CP and CP2. Will, Tessa, Jem, Cecily, Gideon, and Sophie have a crazy night on the town because Will and Tessa NEVER pick truth, and the others run out of ideas for dares that can be done inside the institute. J/T moments include Sophie daring Tessa to re-enact Jem’s proposal, and Gideon asking Jem how he plans to deal with the Clave if they deny his request to marry Tessa. Jem replies that he will wed Tessa, that the Clave will merely determine the consequences or lack therof, and he will accept it.

But I can also see a game being set between CA and CP, a smaller round-up of Will, Jem, Tessa, and Jessamine. Because you know Jessamine, once she finally stopped sniffing at the idea of joining the other three for anything, would play dirty and come up with very mean questions and dares.

Tropes!
