So I admit that I trawl the (conspicuously anon) archives of the dcu/dceu/dccu kinkmemes. I do. I have no shame about this.
What I’d never done was actually submit to any of these communities.
I took on a prompt that seemed at first glance to be an “easy in’ – can’t take more than 2-5k, I thought to myself with unseemly glee, ready to flex my kink muscles.
Yup. That was me…
….back in late April.
Now it’s January, and I’ve managed to post about 100k and am in the fourth in said BDSM, Bottom Clark, Dominant Bruce (though Dominant b/c of dynamics, not who tops/bottoms!!) series.
I’ll be posting chapter 7 of 14 in part IV sometime this week, adding 6k to my wordcount.
I have another 40-60k in the wings waiting for my longsuffering beta reader.
- It’s been rec’d. More than once!! What is happening in the world?
- It’s inspired/prompted two fan-covers (by ManicMea):
- A particular fanartist (handled ‘Albi’) who Ive followed for some time (you may recall the Superbat manga of ‘right in front of my salad’ with Diana at the counter? Yeah..Albi) both rec’d and contacted me with these amazing beauties!
(The other two are in-line on the AO3 host page and the available epub from AO3)
So I’ll just leave that story link right here…
How long will this go on? Well, until the story is finished, I suppose. Aiming for 200k written this year (in total, not just this project).
Wish me luck!
All of this is just to say how incredibly honored and amazed I am at the top of this year. Fandom, fam… fandom is fucking amazing.
And it requires a response.
Thanks everyone for their help, whether reading, encouraging/cheer-leading, creating art, having written something that further inspired me, alpha views, arguing canon vs fanon over pastries with me, debating/interrogating the differences between bottom-shaming/misogyny and BDSM subbing when the sub IS the bottom…
You know who you are. Thank you.
ETA: FYI, if you know this is trggering/disliked/material you as an adult CANNOT HANDLE, then do us both a favor and just skip the links. You will not be welcomed. You will not convince me that I am doing wrong. You will only waste your time with a non-hetero genderqueer feminist who is in no mood for your shit. 😀
