I told you... I'm not the girl you think I am.

Resources Used:
Images came from Fatale by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips (with the focal point of the image coming from issue six specifically)
The font used was Austie Bost Rest of Our Lives
Texture came from here and was layered over a gray-scaled layer put above the layers for the pictures in the background.

As always, choosing and cleaning the images I used remains the hardest and most frustrating part of making graphics. I finished this earlier in the week but forgot to post it here.

11/30/2014 - It's the holiday season and I won't be able to get back to substitute teaching until January (even though I should be back in Florida in as little as 2.5 weeks. So I'm opening uo commissions so that I can bring a little joy to my nieces' lives.

Here’s what I’m willing and able to write for you:
  • Most kinks-- I do not write non-con, bestiality, sex between more than four people, bestiality, or scat. That’s a blanket ban. If you wonder if I’ll write a kink for you that’s not up on that short list, please just ask.
  • All ratings of fiction
  • Alternate Universes
  • I will definitely write for the following fandoms: Teen Wolf, DCU as a whole (Batman, Superman, Young Justice, and the Teen Titans are my best subfandoms there), Marvel Movieverse + Comics, Batman Beyond, and Young Avengers.
  • I'm a bit iffy on anime fandoms, but if the story isn't set in Japan and I won't have to try and struggle not to mess up with honorifics, I'd be happy to write for you.
  • If you want something for a fandom that isn’t on that list, lemme know in a message and I’ll see what I can do.
  • I will write most ships. It’s kind of on an “ask if you’re worried” basis.
  • I will also write stories for your original characters (or heck, even my original characters if you're so inclined). Just give me whatever info you've got and I’ll write what you want.

For examples of my writing see my AO3 page.

For work that I’ve done specifically for commissions, here's a list of some completed commissions that I've done in the past.

Example stories:

To sleep (Kory/Raven) for miscella
Homecoming and Filling in the Blanks (OCs! Tavares/Zeke) for meyari
Mission Impossible (Teen Wolf/DCU crossover) for annafh
Wish Fulfillment (Bruce/Dick) for st00pz
Beta Bonding Session (Boyd/Isaac/Erica) for planetofthehats

All commission stories go through a rigorous editing process and I make sure that the stories are close to perfect before I post them.

Let's talk pricing! )

To sleep

To sleep (1877 words) by Miss Synph
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: DCU, Teen Titans (Comics), DCU (Comics)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Koriand'r/Raven
Characters: Koriand'r, Raven (DCU)
Additional Tags: Fluff, Implied Relationships, Ambiguous Relationships, Cuddling & Snuggling

When Raven can't sleep, she takes a walk through the tower.


I'm so proud of this story. I'm really invested in the Teen Titans stories from the late 80s/early 90s as my favorite interpretations of these characters and I honestly feel like Kory should be smooching everyone almost all of the time. So this commission was a major treat to work on.

I'm on babysitting duty today so while no writing has been done yet, the niece and I did play with legos for several hours. This doesn't *really* count as a story, but I hope it's cute enough to serve as a distraction until I can get one up.

Also: my "Hush" minifig is really the Bruce Wayne minifig.

Way too much woman for you?

Images came from the Power Girl series that ended in 2012. No textures, brushes, or smart objects were used in this very basic graphic.

(I forgot to post this here when I made it two months ago...)

ETA: I don't know what happened to the original image but I'll upload it elsewhere when I find it again and repost. Ah!
thequipkid: (Default)

: Some posts will be unlocked (mostly fan fiction/graphics), but for privacy's sake, the majority will be friendslocked and behind a cut. If you want access to my posts, friend me first and comment on this post if you want. I'm not granting access to just anyone that asks, but I'll try to either add most people or post some unlocked content.

Edited to add:

I can't yet figure out how to place a donate button on the blog itself for commissions and the like so for now it's going to have to be here. Please don't feel as though you have to donate to me (especially if you don't know me). I simply can't figure out the intricacies of code wrangling on dreamwidth and livejournal.

Vistor (2019 words) by Miss Synph
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: DCU, DCU (Comics)
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Dick Grayson/Slade Wilson, Dick Grayson/Bruce Wayne
Characters: Slade Wilson, Dick Grayson
Additional Tags: Alpha/Beta/Omega Dynamics, Self-Lubrication, Mating Cycles/In Heat, Past Relationship(s), Plot What Plot/Porn Without Plot

Dick goes from safe to Slade.

I've been sitting on this story for the last few months as I tried to figure out what to do with it. I wrote 400 more words and decided that if I didn't post it now, I might never post it.

Is it good? I have no idea since I dislike most of what I write.

Is it an exercise in self indulgence? Hell yeah.

Now that I've gotten to write a story with  Alpha/Omega dynamics, I can stop fixating on the trope especially because lubricating assholes are something I got over when I was 14 and a truly terrible porn writer (as opposed to being regularly mediocre). I'm just happy that it's "done" and I can move on to another kinky fandom trope.

Oh god I'm so not sure I can get to finish my rough draft in time.

I wound up adding more to my outline and so even though I've written 2400 words today and will write a ton more, I still am lagging behind. This is due like tonight and it's more like I have 60% done instead of 80%.

And my title sucks.

Between crunchyroll and netflix, which service is better for watching dramas?

(I don't have money for either just yet, but I'd like to be prepared for a sudden influx of funds in case I win the lottery or something and can watch all of my favorite dramas and catch some new ones.)

Title: tell me what it feels like getting over
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: canon-typical descriptions of blood and violence, some non-explicit sexuality
Pairings: eventual Bruce/Dick, Barbara/Kory, past Dick/Barbara, Dick/Kory, and implied past instances of Bruce/Harvey and Bruce/Selina
Characters: Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson, Kory Anders/Koriand’r, Barbara Gordon, Tim Drake, Selina Kyle, Harvey Dent, Jason Todd, Cassandra Cain

Heir to the Grayson’s entertainment empire, Dick Grayson has lost two sets of parents and in the process, gained a younger brother as well as a loving found family. When his attempts at bringing his parents’ circus to Gotham City are met with threatening notes and suspicious packages, Dick winds up with a compellingly handsome bodyguard taking up space in his home as a murderer follows on their heels.

Author Notes:
This story was started when I asked myself several questions:

  • What if I wrote a role reversal story set in an alternate universe where Dick was the rich orphan and Bruce was a kid that grew up poor (and in Park Row)?

  • What if that story was also filled with queer relationships?

  • What if I managed to write a romantic relationship between Bruce and Dick that couldn’t rely on canon-typical expressions of their relationship (the pseudo-parental stuff as well as the years of history between them)?

  • What if there were murders and drama akin to an episode of NCIS but without all the fridging of women and POC?

  • Is it possible to racebend classic comic characters while using fiction as your medium?

I wanted to try to write a slow build story for my favorite pairing and this is as slow as they get. Originally started for the DCU Big Bang for 2012, this work of fan fiction is currently halfway finished and will have a regular (but slow) update schedule as I work to finish the story.

Five different Batfamily-centered drabbles that follow the tried and true Harlequin romance novel style of ending romance or sex scenes scenes right before the best part.
When good parts start, it’s time to fade to black.

Author Notes:

I’ve been catching up with my Harlequin romances and that put me in the mood to try my hand at it myself (even though my stories are already pretty close as it is as far as AUs and goopy prose is concerned). Hence writing five stories that kind of nod at different tropes used in Harlequin romance novels.

The titles for the stories are the titles for the books that each story would be from if they were part of actual Harlequin romance novels.

Separated into different posts so that people don’t have to scroll past things they don’t ship, it’ll take me two and a half weeks to post all five chapters if I post one drabble every time I’m supposed to update this blog.

(Currently, the links don't work. I'll be linking to the stories on AO3 ASAP)

Jason/Tim - The Bodyguard’s Close Call
Bruce/Dick - Catch Me If You Want Me
David/Dick - His Consort’s Request
Talia/Bruce - Not A Damsel In Sight
Cass/Onyx - Make Her Sweat

I haven't given up on trying to go to grad school. I mean, I already have student loans I'll probably never pay off unless I win the lottery so what's a few thousand more.

The problem is, that aside from not having the money at this time to take the GRE (which means I can basically only apply to schools that don't require it right now), every school is too far or too expensive for my mother who isn't going to be paying for it anyway.

Enough about me being a mope, what are you all up to on the internet on this fine Thursday evening (or whatever day/time it is where you are)?

What fics are you reading? Any podcasts I should be listening to? What has you entertained while you're procrastinating?
thequipkid: (Default)
Since I still have the hiatus code up on my main main tumblr blog and Angie and I are sharing a serious blog on the site, I don't exactly have many places to post serious life-affirming no-more-bullshit posts.

But this is my mid-year's resolution and I'm sticking to it with fandom because you know what, the people that know I don't like them don't let it bother them or change how they deal with fandom, so why should I? I'm going to have fun in the DCU fandom because it's got good comics somewhere and I love the characters and the group of people I do actually surround myself with. So this is my mid-year's resolution and I'm going to stick to it even if it means adding a whole lot of people/terms to my tumblr savior list because I deserve to be happy and I have the means to make myself happy.


I can't change your opinion.

Sure, I can try. I can write posts about my side and my feelings and how much it hurts that people don't like me for arbitrary reasons such as disliking ships or BNFs or celebs that they like. I can even make videos with my face in them as though looking at my sad face will change the fact that people don't like me.

There's a lot that I can change in my life, but as for changing your opinion of me?

I think, it's sinking in slowly that I can't do that.

I've been on a roll lately with the topic of fandom and feedback and now I'm doing a survey.

If you participate in fandom via creating work (any work at all!), please check out this survey I'm doing. I'll post graphs and analysis in the weeks to come and no personal or identifying details are necessary. So far results are a little different than I expected and I really look forward to going over them in depth. 

Survey here!

Here's the Tumblr post to reblog so I can get a larger sample size, but feel free to share this any way that you want so that I can get the largest possible sample size. (And if someone would be a dear and ask the Organization of Transformative Works if this is something they'd be interested in sharing/retweeting, that'd be great since thinking about doing that gives me chills.)

Note: If you're the kind of person who thinks that fannish people shouldn't want recognition for working hard and using their talents for fandom, don't tell me that you feel that way. I've already gone through it once for the night and it wasn't cute the first time.

Tentative Questions I'm looking to answer in part or full (New as of 6/25 @ 11AM): 
  1. What common factors seem to lead to fandom satisfaction?
  2. What common factors seem to lead to fandom dissatisfaction?
  3. How widespread is fandom satisfaction and which fandoms represented in the survey have the most positive responses and experience? 
  4. Ditto for fandom dissatisfaction and negatives.
  5. How does the age of the fandom have anything to do with things like popularity/feedback? (this one requires legwork after the survey results are in.)
  6. Does the length of participation in fandom link up to fandom satisfaction?
  7. How does popularity (marked in this survey by people who had positive responses the categories feedback received, self-assigned level in fandom, and followers for starters) measure up with satisfaction? (This is going to be a little difficult but I want to see if there's a link between the two)
  8. In the responses of people who filled in the explanation section for dissatisfaction, what common words or phrases show up most often?
  9. How can I get access to the people that took the survey so far to get the positive responses to fill out an addendum?
After I collect data and go to different fandom communities as a lurker to look at fandom satisfaction all over the internet, I'm probably going to do another survey so I can look deeper at the results. I realized after the fact that I forgot to put in the explanation section for people who are happy with their fandom experience so far so the second survey would definitely have something to that effect since at the amount of respondents so far, I couldn't possibly add another answer set.


ETA: Because apparently, mentioning my personal feelings about feedback equals "weighting" the questions/survey to get a specific answer (so not true). I've removed the initial why for my focusing on fandom and have replaced it with the current list of the questions I will be working on answering or coming close to answering because I may not get the fandom sample size that I want.

It's raining. Been raining.
All I can do is sleep and complain. I suck. 
thequipkid: (Default)

as my interest dies.

Note: If you're just going to reblog this/comment to complain about how I don't know anything about race, the film/television industry, or comic book culture/history, please just move on by. This post is not for you and you won't learn a damn thing from it.

Maybe I am in fact being a little pessimistic with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. but it's all because of Joss Whedon's body of work (of which I'm not entirely a fan despite being well familiar with it). I prefer to complain now and possibly be pleasantly surprised later than buy into the hype and have Whedon disappoint me for the nth time.

(that I didn't expect to love)

Injustice: Gods Among Us -a post about this is forthcoming, but I'm backlogged with my writing so it'll be a while since I've only gotten to play the darn storymode once. Let's just say that even though the plot is not so good, that I still had way more fun with it in my little play session than I expected to have.

Les Miserables - Oh man, I'm still slowly picking my way through the book, but the musical was AMAZING and I keep bursting into song at the most inopportune moments

Teaching! - I had so much  fun teaching yesterday and I just really love kids. I just need to work on being more confident and also sterner because if it had been a pre-K class instead of a first grade class, I'd have been lost because I just want to love on them for ever because they're babies. Gosh.

Special thanks to Sam who talked me through this on twitter and helped my first attempt at graphic making come out pretty well after several hours in Photoshop. It's a good first start and I'm hopeful that I'll get better with time and lots of practice. (Click the picture for a larger version.)
