Congratulations to Jensen and Danneel Ackles on their pregnancy! \o/ I wish them all the best, and I'm so happy and excited for them! Another Ackles in the world--SQUEE!!

Candied Yams and Sticky Conversations, Part 2 of my Orbit!Verse, has been translated into Espanol! It is available here on my AO3 or here on Supernatural Foro.

Huge thanks to Alfer for the translation! ♥♥♥♥♥

I should have the translation of third part, A Fork in the Road, posted to my AO3 in the next day or two (it is currently up on the second page of the same Supernatural Foro page as Candied Yams, but I'll put it in its own post on AO3 this week). Alfer is also in the middle of translating the fourth part, The Space Between, and I'll start getting that posted as quickly as I can. Probably next week.

YAAAY!!!

My 2010 [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang fic, Ours is a Reciprocal Gravitation Orbit is now available in Spanish! Tremendous thanks to Alfer for translating it. She plans to continue translating the rest of the verse, but probably won't be able to start the next story, Candied Yams and Sticky Conversations for at least a couple of months.

The Spanish version is available on my AO3 account here and on Supernatural Foro here.

The entire verse is available in English on my AO3 here. I will post all future Spanish translations to the Orbit!Verse en Español series.

Thank you again, Alfer! ♡♡♡♡♡

Dialogue Exercise #1

Title: Ignition
Author: [livejournal.com profile] viridescence
Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Pairing: Jensen Ackles/Jared Padalecki, AU, pre-slash
Rating: PG-13-ish
Word Count: 1515
Warnings: None, really. Some Ford vs. Chevy rivalry. A not-so-favorable opinion on Autozone. Lots of specific automotive language.

Summary: When a tall, lanky guy walks into Jensen's custom automotive shop looking for ignition parts, Jensen finds something he wasn't expecting: spark.

Disclaimer: This is a work of FICTION. I do not own Jensen or Jared, or any of the characters who have real lives, and it’s a pretty safe bet that none of this EVER happened and that this story in no way reflects the actual sexual orientation or relationships of the real people included in the story. No harm is intended. No profit is being made. I’m just borrowing their names and likenesses to play in my own alternate universe.
Author's Notes: This is the first of my dialogue exercise fics. The purpose of this exercise is to write a short scene of dialogue to practice getting a natural feel to the conversation and voices. I also wanted to try to work in background information into the dialogue rather than info-dump it. And this is my first stab at it!

This was written in a few hours based on a prompt swiped from a few lines of one of Maintenance Man's conversations. I don't know at this point if I'll do anything more with this. For the moment, it's just an exercise. Thank you to Pimmie for prodding me through it and looking it over when I was done with it. And thanks ever so much to my Maintenance Man for the impromptu automotive tutorials. I based a lot of this dialogue (minus the flirting, of course) on years of listening to him talk cars with the guys.

Also available on AO3 here.

viridescence: (Writing: writing is hard)
So! Now that Big Bang season is over (I'll be catching up until next summer, argh), my mind is drifting on to other stories I want to write, plot bunnies I've been nursing.

But.

But I'm not ready to start working on them, for a number of reasons. One of the major reasons is this: one of the things I've known that I need to work on for a while (and also something I got some constructive feedback on from my big bang fic) is my dialogue. Sometimes, when I'm really in the zone with a character, when the character's voice is clear and loud in my head, I have absolutely no trouble writing natural, realistic, easy-flowing dialogue. But that "in-the-zone-ness" is pretty rare for me. And as a result, sometimes my dialogue comes off stilted, stiff, or unnatural.

SO!

Before I start working on my next story in earnest, I want to do some dialogue exercises. Actually, this isn't a want, it's a need. My next story will require snappy dialogue and banter. Therefore, I want to do a series of dialogue-only or very dialogue-heavy scenes or ficlets, 1K-2K (5K absolute tops!) in length, and I am looking for ideas. These can't be larger fics. Just single conversations. I need to work on making my conversations smoother, more natural, more witty, more snappy, flow better, etcetera.

It's like I need to put together a dialogue bingo card. Not hurt/comfort bingo, not kink bingo, not schmoop bingo, but DIALOGUE BINGO. And I need PROMPTS.

So, oh magnificent f-list, I'm asking for help. I'm open to general advice on dialogue as well, but what I really want are ideas for conversations. I can't promise that I'll write them soon, or get through them quickly (I won't even be able to start anything until mid-September, argh), but I'd love to have a list of ideas that I can start working on a little at a time.

What I'm looking for are suggestions or topics for conversations between two or more characters, such as:

☆ arguments
☆ family drama
☆ difficult conversations
☆ joking around with friends
☆ confessions of love
☆ coming out
☆ talking about insecurities and fears
☆ making plans
☆ differences of professional opinion
☆ working with study partners/tutors/tutees
☆ drunken blathering

...and so on and so forth and etcetera. I need specific conversation topics.

Fandoms I'll write in: )

I'm hoping to get 20-25 prompts for a variety of conversations, so I'll have a lot of ideas to toss around. Small-scale prompts, things I can work out in a single conversation. And if I get enough, I'll put together a bingo-type card and start working on them.

Thank you! ♥ *SMOOCHES*

Because for whatever reason, my Master Post isn't showing up on the friends lists, I'm making another post just to let people know that:

I HAVE POSTED FIC!!! \o/


As copied from my [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang post:

Fic Title: The Space Between Your Heart and Mine
Author Name: [livejournal.com profile] viridescence
Artist Name: [livejournal.com profile] meus_venator
Genre: Supernatural RPF, J2 AU
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: NC-17
Word count: ~56,500
Warnings: The typical male/male explicit sex of multiple varieties, with boys who switch who tops as they feel like it. Some references to homophobic and misogynistic language, references to attempted (unsuccessful) coersion, angst, medical issues (not the Js), family angst and drama. Tense conversations that deal directly with homophobia and how poorly Jensen’s parents treated him, which may be triggery to some. And a dollop of schmoop on top.
Summary: Just because you’ve found your soul mate doesn’t mean you’ll instantly have happily ever after. Life and family still happen, and Jensen and Jared have to learn to communicate like any ordinary couple. (Sequel to my 2010 Big Bang fic, Ours is a Reciprocal Gravitation Orbit.)

Title: The Space Between Your Heart and Mine
Author: [livejournal.com profile] viridescence
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] meus_venator
Link to Art Post: GORGEOUS ART HERE!
Fandom: Supernatural RPF/CW Network RPF
Pairing/Characters: Jensen Ackles/Jared Padalecki, Josh Ackles, Mackenzie Ackles, Danneel Harris, Christian Kane, Tom Welling, Donna Ackles, Alan Ackles
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~56,500
Warnings: The typical male/male explicit sex of multiple varieties, with boys who switch who tops as they feel like it. Some references to homophobic and misogynistic language, references to attempted (non-successful) coersion, angst, medical issues (not the Js), family angst and drama. Tense conversation that deals directly with homophobia and how poorly Jensen’s parents treated him, which may be triggery to some. One awkward conversation with Alan that might trigger embarrassment-squick in some people. And a dollop of schmoop on top.
Verse: This fic is a sequel to my 2010 Big Bang fic, Ours is a Reciprocal Gravitation Orbit. This story occurs four years after the end of Orbit, and follows two timestamps in the same verse, Candied Yams and Sticky Conversations and A Fork in the Road. You should read all of those fics before starting this one. The whole series is available on AO3 here.
Disclaimer: This is a work of FICTION. I do not own Jensen, Jared, Alan, Donna, or Oprah Winfrey, or any of the characters who have real lives, and it’s a pretty safe bet that none of this EVER happened and that this story in no way reflects the actual sexual orientation or relationships of the real people included in the story. I have no control over Oprah’s Book List, and Jensen’s fictional book certainly never actually appeared on her book list. No harm is intended. No profit is being made. I’m just borrowing their names and likenesses to play in my own alternate universe.

Summary: Just because you’ve found your soul mate doesn’t mean you’ll instantly have happily ever after.  Life and family still happen, and Jensen and Jared have to learn to communicate like any ordinary couple.

Author’s Notes: Tremendous, HUMONGOUS thanks to my beta/coach/plot goddess, Pimmie, for working with me on this fic and this verse for two years now. Seriously, the words “thank you” are completely inadequate to express my love and gratitude. Thank you also to my other beta readers: [livejournal.com profile] clex_monkie89, [livejournal.com profile] rurounihime, and [livejournal.com profile] starlitshore! I am immensely grateful to you all, for your ruthless striking of my unnecessary dialogue tags, the way you tackled my rambly-ness head on, how you identified plot holes and repetitiveness and cliches, and for the way you squeed and flailed at me and cheered me on. All four of you have all made this story indubitably better than it was in my first draft, and I love you all for being such amazing friends. ♥♥♥♥♥!!!

Thanks also to [livejournal.com profile] wendy and [livejournal.com profile] thehighwaywoman for running [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang year after year. Ladies, you amaze me with the incredible organizational feat you manage to pull off again and again. Thanks for making this such a fun challenge. :D

Title taken from a line of the Dave Matthews Band song The Space Between.
