JM: Young tilted head closeup

Hi!

This LJ is no longer active.

Most of my stories are now on AO3.
If you're looking to talk to little old anti-social me, you can find me on Tumblr.
If you're reading one of my WIPs, so so sorry, RL is tough and keeps coming in the way. Please consider them abandoned at this point. But haven't given up on any yet, promise.

cheers,

The Veradillian Mirror by cyndrarae / Artwork by Antares

Title: The Veradillian Mirror
Author: cyndrarae
Characters/Pairing: Jack O’Neill/Daniel Jackson, Teal’c, Major Sam Carter, General Hammond, Dr. Janet Frasier, Siler.
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~10k

Summary: Daniel Jackson comes across yet another unidentified alien object on an alien planet. One that looks very much like the Quantum mirror he found on P3R-233 three years ago. Really he should know by now that touching an unidentified alien object that looks like a Quantum mirror on an alien planet is never a good idea, ever! Except, of course, when it is.

Notes: Established Jack/Daniel relationship. This gets kinky, like really, really kinky. In fact, it’s more kink and less plot. Warnings for: explicit m/m slash, anal sex, BDSM elements, bondage, discipline, sex toys, dubious consent, power imbalance, talk about dom/sub dynamics, actual dom/sub dynamics, basically smut. You’ve been warned!

Written for 2017 SG-1 Reverse Bang on stargate_summer. I chose gorgeous artwork by antares04a as seen below...

Fic: Flickers upon Cordillera (J2 RPS AU, Bigbang 2017)

Title: Flickers upon Cordillera
Author: cyndrarae
Artist: yanyann
Genre: RPS, werewolf lore AU, shifter lore AU, post-apocalyptic AU
Pairing: Jensen Ackles/Jared Padalecki (others: Jensen Ackles/Matt Cohen, Jared Padalecki/Adrianne Palicki, Jeffrey Dean Morgan/Andrew Lincoln, etc.)
Rating: NC-17
Word count: ~70K
Warnings: explicit m/m sex, bottom!Jared, BDSM elements, dubious consent, prostitution, non-graphic violence, character deaths, some heterosexual content, minor characters from cast of The Walking Dead
Summary: It’s a brave new post-apocalyptic world. Humans no longer rule the planet, Lorics do. And at the bottom of the food chain are the shifters. This is a world pretending to be better, but racial tensions simmer thick under the surface. Then there’s Jared, genius-level shifter, pretending to be someone pretending to be Jared. And there’s Jensen, powerful Loric Alpha, falling in love with a human but accidentally bonding with a shifter. It’s an epical comedy of errors that snowballs into the biggest socio-political scandal of the millennium. One this brave new post-apocalyptic world sorely needed.
Notes: Thank you jdl71 for your beta support, you’ve been incredible!

Looking for a beta for J2 Bigbang 2017..

Hi there... not sure if anyone is around here.. I'm looking for a beta for my 2017 bigbang fic. Am posting in the last week of June. This is the last year I'll be participating, and maybe that's why I ended up writing a 74k tome for it hehe. Please let me know if you're interested and able to help me out?

Title: Flickers upon Cordillera
Genre: J2 AU (futuristic/post-apocalyptic, alternate take on werewolf and shapeshifter genres)
Pairings or Characters: Jensen Ackles/Jared Padalecki, other secondary pairings include Jensen Ackles/Matt Cohen, Jeff Morgan/Andy Lincoln, etc.
Rating: NC-17
Type of beta you'd like: Grammar, spelling, plot holes, inconsistencies, check for brit-speak (I tend to switch between Americana and the Queen's English without realizing it)
Length: 74K
Short Summary: On a post-nuclear ice age earth, humans are no longer the dominant species. Instead the Lorics are in charge, while at the bottom of the food chain are the shifters. This is a world where racial prejudices are still rampant because sadly no one learnt anything from their histories. So when a Loric falls in love with a human, then accidentally bonds with a shifter, it’s a catalyst for political strife and social scandal that rattles the very foundation of this new world order.
Warnings: Explicit m/m slash scenes, BDSM (bondage, discipline, toys), some cast of TWD included.

I'd be very happy to return the favor and beta your fic in exchange. Cheers!!
Merlin: Merthur

Fic: Like in France (Merlin RPF, Colin/Bradley, NC-17, BDSM)

Title: Like in France
Summary
: A BDSM scene gone wrong leaves Bradley traumatized in ways he can’t cope with on his own. So he calls his friend Colin for help, a friend who happens to be his ex-boyfriend, and also the man who first introduced Bradley to BDSM.
Author Notes: I started this in response to a KMM prompt here, but drifted really, really far away from it. Oh well, guess I wrote it because I wanted to read it! If you don’t watch Outlander, all you need to know is this: Tobias Menzies is Captain Randall who, in the season one finale, imprisons and brutally rapes Jamie Fraser, the male protagonist played by Sam Heughan. The episode is extremely graphic, not one you usually see in mainstream TV or film. Another thing to know (if you don’t already) is that Menzies and Bradley James are co-starring in the next Underworld movie.
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: sexual violence (implied not graphic), dom/sub, BDSM gone wrong, delayed sub drop, bondage, domestic discipline, spanking, whipping, sex toys, non-con/dubious consent, aftermath, hurt/comfort
Word Count: ~16870
Disclaimer: I don’t own anything or anyone. Characters based on real people but have no bearing whatsoever on the actual people. Entirely fictional, not for profit.

JP: Splintering 1

Fic: Splintering in Slow Motion (J2 RPS, Big Bang 2016)

Yep, I actually finished one heh :) If anyone's around and might want to give this a shot, the ao3 link is below...

Title: Splintering in Slow Motion
Genre: RPS
Pairing: Jensen/Jared
Rating: NC-17 (some art NSFW)
Word count: 31k
Warnings: depression, anxiety disorder, suicide attempts, angst, divorce aftermath, explicit m/m sex, rimming, bottom Jared
Summary: Jared has been fighting the ‘darkness’ for as long as he can remember, until he can’t, or doesn’t want to anymore. He decides to treat himself to one final weekend of fun before laying down his arms, so to speak. The last thing he expects is a gatecrasher, someone who might derail his best laid plans for good.
(In other, oversimplified, words, Jared is a high-functioning depressive who’s just snapped, Jensen is a bitter ex-husband who's having a hard time moving on, and then there’s this freakishly well-timed coincidence.)

Author Notes:
1. Thank you cherry916 and shalooney for your mad and thorough beta skills. All mistakes are my inability to incorporate all the great feedback from you!
2. Thanks also to milly_gal for stepping up as my pinch hitting artist despite your multiple commitments, and for creating such FANTASTIC artwork. You’ve been so patient and so encouraging, and I may not still understand what layers are, but I do know you’re incredibly gifted and you have a big, generous heart. So thank you hon :)
3. All characters in this story are entirely fictitious, only inspired by actors on the CW series Supernatural. Not written for profit, only meant to be a creative outlet, and free for enjoyment by all.

Looking for a beta (J2 RPS AU story)

Hey everyone! It's been awhile and I don't know who's around LJ anymore. I'm looking for someone to beta my spn bigbang story.. yes I actually finished one heh. Please PM me if you're interested?

Genre: RPS AU, angst
Pairings or Characters: Jensen/Jared
Type of beta you'd like: Look over my spelling and grammar, make sure it sounds American enough (I'm not!), and also look for plot holes and unclear logic in the story.
Length: About 27K
Summary: I will PM it. But some warnings to consider: depression, suicide, guilt, infidelity and angst. Happy ending tho!
Turnaround Time: I was hoping maybe a week?
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Merlin: Arthur sleeping

Fic: Proof of Life (Merlin, Merlin/Arthur, NC-17)

Title: Proof of life
Rating:
NC-17
Summary: College AU. Merlin has recurring dreams of Arthur dying. Arthur reassures him the best way he can.
Warnings: M/M sex. Amateur, unbeta’d writing, you’ve been warned!
Notes: They’re in an American university in this one, but aren’t necessarily American. Could be anything really. This can also be read as a reincarnation story but it's open to your interpretation. I started off trying to write a short PG drabble, but then Bottom Arthur fest week began and so this happened :)
Word Count: 2004

Read on ao3

JP: Lost puppy! If found return to JA

Fic: A Heated Affair (J2, Jared/Gen, RPS AU)

Title: A Heated Affair
Rating: NC-17
Summary: As luck would have it, he turns out to be an omega. Not only that, he finds himself mated to not one, not two, but three alphas. Jared thinks he might just be the luckiest wolf on earth.
Written for a prompt at SPN masquerade last year: Genevieve pegging Jared while Jensen watches and makes suggestions. After, she watches Jensen fuck Jared. Bonus points for a/b/o dynamics and knotting with Jared as omega, Jensen and Genevieve (or Danneel) as alpha.
Warnings: Very explicit BDSM, bondage, sex toys, supernatural sex practices.
Notes: CW RPS AU. I’ve never written a/b/o dynamic before, but my understanding is every writer gets to do it their own way so… here goes! POV switches back and forth between J&J. PWP, not beta’d.
Word Count: ~4400
