But who else out there is going nuts as your "what if" stories and pre-canon timeline stories are smashed to dust? Writers are compulsive creatures so there's that urge to go back and tweak details---then again, one of the things that makes the canon bombings tolerable is the absolute authority with which Kubo kills your backstory. I've yet to read a fic that was in the canon timeline that was better than Kubo's story. I remember writing the scene where Ryuuken gives Uryuu his powers back simply because I was tired of waiting for it and thinking damn, this is pretty good, I wonder if Kubo can do something this good, and of course, he does leagues better.
Pimping Time. nehalenia wrote a fic based on my drawing of Ishida with the fireflies: Whatever You Want (IchiIshi, yaoi, NC17). It's ... guh ... gah. And because I didn't properly pimp the fic last time, she also wrote a really delish steaming spring and sweaty bodies fic not long ago called Sword Brothers (RenIshi, yaoi, NC17)
Take heed, Neha's fic isn't for everyone--those of you who won't like it know who you are. But if you want scrumptious, literate, goooood smut, she's your gal.
I'm still trying to learn how to write smut like that. In case you missed it, I'm still interested in responses to The Pr0n Ficcer's Meme. I caught some people filling out the meme in private LJs but it would be cool if you could answer in comments to the original post itself. Thanks.
