The new mods decided to work off the first round list instead of the second/third, apparently, so stuff like au:daemons is back. If I'd realized, I'd have opted out. Ah, well.





Not sure where I want to go with this one yet. Pretty much everything but au:daemons is workable.

I’m working on this story again - it just passed 10k words, and is about one chapter from completion. This is a canon divergence AU; Isabella never moved in across the street, and instead grew up across town. She led a competing Fireside Girls troop, which came in second to Adyson’s in number of patches earned for several years running. Accusations of cheating caused a very strong enmity between the two girls.
 
Phineas walked down the hallway as the school day ended, holding Adyson’s hand.
 
“I just need to stop at my locker and drop off books for the night,” she said, then sighed. “I just wish I didn’t have her locker next to mine.”
 
“Whose?” Phineas asked, confused.
 
Hers,” she replied, nodding her head in the direction of the girl who was just closing the locker next to Adyson’s. “Isabella,” she explained in a bitter voice. “Head of Troop 75309.”
 
Phineas nodded, understanding. Adyson had complained about the girl for years, but he’d never seen her before. She looked…well, not as evil as Adyson described. Long black hair with a bright pink bow in it, and large, dark blue eyes. She was wearing a light pink blouse and patterned skirt, and he suddenly remembered that he’d seen her in English class. She was attractive enough, although he flushed with embarrassment a bit as he realized it. He tried not to pay enough attention to other girls to notice such things; Adyson was his girlfriend, and he didn’t need to keep window-shopping.

The final Trope Bingo story is done in first draft, working on some rewrites now for posting later this week. I’ve posted from this one before, but it’s ripe for another post.
 
Perry idly strolled into the backyard, his mission for the day complete. Doof had been defeated, and Perry had gotten away scot-free. The Tofu-inator hadn’t even gotten a shot off before Perry had hit the self-destruct. And now, his favorite part of the day…
 
He waited for somebody to say, “Oh, there you are, Perry,” but there was just silence.
 
He looked around. The backyard was empty. That wasn’t right.

So Phineas the Fireside Girl ends on a note that there may be a sequel, as Phineas has hurt his relationship with Isabella by turning himself into a girl to sneak into the initiation ceremony, getting caught, and lying about it.
 
Now, he’s trying to make amends. It’s not going as well as he’d hoped.
 
“Why’s he here?” Milly asked, nodding her head toward Phineas.
 
“He has something he needs to tell us,” Isabella said to the rest of the Fireside Girls troop.
 
They’d gathered in the cramped Fireside Girls’ clubhouse, just two days after the recent initiation ceremony. Two new girls had been initiated: Amy, who had just finished making her new uniform and sat quietly with the rest of the troop, and Phoebe, who didn’t appear to be there yet.
 
His hand rubbing the back of his neck uncomfortably, Phineas took a deep breath. Dropping his hand to his side, he said, “So, the truth is - Phoebe was me. I turned myself into a girl to see what happened during the initiation. It was a stupid idea, Ferb tried to talk me out of it, I’m sorry, I won’t ever do it again. I took an oath not to tell anyone any of your secrets, and I’ll keep it.”
 
The girls weren’t as stunned as he had expected. Instead, they mostly nodded knowingly. “I should have guessed,” Gretchen said to Ginger in a quiet voice.

Brief pause this week to work on a Psychonauts story, a father-daughter story about Truman and Lili set as she approaches adulthood. Because me, it’s Raz/Lili even though Raz never shows up.
 
Truman Zanotto stared unseeing at the book hovering in front of him. His eyes flicked over to the clock, which read 11:56. As he watched, it flipped to 11:57.
 
He started, the book falling into his lap, as the door to his quarters slid open and his seventeen-year-old daughter Lili walked in. “You didn’t have to wait up, Dad,” she said with a scowl as the door slid closed behind her.
 
"You’re early," he said. "I didn’t expect you for another two minutes."
 
Lili rolled her eyes. “Ha ha, Dad.”

This story continues the timeline from Mistletoe Is Serious Business, Are You Sure, Vanessa?, Are You Sure, Ferb?, and Like Kissing Her Brother. I’ve been taking lessons from Sabrina06 on making characters’ lives miserable. Here we have a bit of a flashback on Lawrence’s part.
 
Lawrence looked at the divorce papers that had just been handed to him. Millicent had left, saying, effectively, “You wanted the kid, he’s your problem. I told you I wasn’t ready to be a mother yet.” Now she was making it official, and giving him sole custody.
 
He put the papers down on the table by the front door, and looked over at his toddler son, playing on the floor. He’d gotten his father’s nose, but his mother’s green hair, and the results were striking. The boy looked up at him, his bright eyes inquiring.
 
"Sorry, Ferb. Not your problem. It’s going to be just you and me from now on."
 
Ferb shrugged and picked up his toy truck again.

More of the Calvin/Susie story I excerpted a couple weeks ago. It’s been retitled. They’ve met up again after she moved away at age 8, and came back into town to go to college.
 
Their schedules meshed for lunch on Tuesdays, so they had gotten in the habit of meeting up at the café where they’d first run into each other.
 
Calvin picked up his meatloaf sandwich. “Mm. Worm meat casserole with squished maggot sauce on toast. Just like Mom used to make.”
 
Susie shook her head. “Doesn’t work on me anymore, Calvin.” She plucked a grape from her fruit salad. “Mmm, eyeballs,” she said, popping it into her mouth. Chewing and swallowing it with an audible gulp, she said, “The retina’s the best part.”
 
Calvin burst out laughing. “You’ve definitely changed in the past ten years.”

Getting back to trope bingo now - came up with a Calvin and Hobbes idea for my ‘amnesia’ square. Calvin hit a tree while going in his toboggan, and hit his head pretty hard. Now…he doesn’t remember anybody.
 
“Would you like Hobbes to keep you company while your father and I talk a bit more to the doctor?”

“Who’s Hobbes?” he asked.
 
She pointed toward the table, concern creasing her brow. “Hobbes. Your tiger.”
 
“Oh, the stuffed tiger’s mine?”
 
While Calvin still had some missing spots in his vocabulary, he was reasonably sure the look that passed between the people claiming to be his parents was called ‘horror’.

Today we have a piece of the Calvin & Hobbes story I started this afternoon. Ten years after she moved away, Calvin has just run into Susie, now going by Sue, at a café near her college campus.
 
She sat, waving him to a seat at the table. “Something like that. Calvin, this is Kristin, my roommate. Kristin, this is Calvin, the boy I was telling you about from when I used to live here.”
 
He looked at Kristin, concerned. “Uh-oh. That sounds ominous.”
 
Kristin laughed. “Nah. Apparently you were kinda cool but weird.”
 
Calvin sagged in relief. “That’s…better than I would have ever expected.”
 
Sue shrugged. “You left an impression on me.”

Not really sure on the name here, but I haven’t found a better one yet. Steve and Darcy, filling the cotton candy bingo prompt ‘wearing pajamas all day’.
 
She sat next to him on the couch; he was still dressed in his pajama pants, and she had to fight not to get distracted by the view of him shirtless with a day and a half’s stubble covering his face. On the table in front of him lay old pictures and newspaper clippings, organized into folders. She recognized the names on the folders - Dum-Dum, Morita, Barnes. Old comrades, now gone. “What’s this for?” she asked. “Why the sudden bout of nostalgia?”

This is from an upcoming story that fits the trope bingo fill ‘character in distress’.
 
“CURSE YOU, PINKY THE CHIHUAHUA!” Professor Poofenplotz shouted as the small dog parachuted away from her lair. With a deep sigh, she looked around the shambles the agent had made. Her latest plan had been torn apart again, and she had to start from scratch. Just another day in the life of an evil scientist.
 
She couldn’t bear to clean yet, so she found herself staring out the window, not really seeing the traffic going by beneath. Why do I even bother? she thought. Upstaged by a chihuahua. Again.
 
A pair of boys shot past her building, flying along on rocket skates. As she watched, they maneuvered and dodged, twirling past buildings and around light poles. Clever boys. Perhaps they’d help me out with…suitable incentive.
 
She smiled. An evil plan had occurred to her. And this time, Pinky the Chihuahua wouldn’t be able to stop her.

Ooh.  So many things to ponder.  Leaning toward the UL-LR diagonal.  The Tangled story about to go out can snag the center square as 'losing virginity'.  'Wearing pajamas all day' strikes me as a Steve/Darcy story.  'Early' - I've always considered Phineas an early riser.  'Reading' is a bit fuzzier, but I can find something.  'Our song' probably shouldn't be about 'Gitchee Gitchee Goo', but I have a sneaky suspicion that's where I'm going to end up.

 Three pieces came out last month:
 
Chrysalis - (Phineas & Ferb, Phineas/Isabella, holidayfic) - A Hanukkah story, only a month and a half late.

This is a Tangled story, set on Eugene and Rapunzel’s wedding night.  (E-rated, although this excerpt is clean.)  It’s interesting to ponder what she does - and doesn’t - know, since Mother Gothel will have kept her as ignorant as possible.  But ignorance isn’t stupidity, and she’s smart enough to have discovered some things on her own…
 
She blushed as she came over and sat next to him at the edge of the bed. She took a deep breath, and with a determined look on her face, said, “So the qu…my mother said you’d teach me all about the mysteries of the wedding night.”
 
He nodded, unable to form words.
 
"Mother Go…the witch never told me anything, of course, and there wasn’t anything about it in my books. And whenever I asked my real parents, they got flustered and said you’d help me with it once we were married. So…what’s the deal?”

I’m thrashing between four different stories right now, but this is the only one I haven’t posted a Sunday Six from yet. This is for the ‘genderswap’ space on my Trope Bingo board; Phineas has transformed himself into a girl to infiltrate a Fireside Girls meeting. (Ferb thinks this is a colossally bad idea.)
 
“Okay, Ferb, how do I look?” Phineas asked. She’d dressed up in a light blue blouse and dark blue capri pants. Ferb looked her over, sighed, and gave a thumbs up. “Okay, great. Wish me luck.” Ferb shook his head emphatically.
 
“Hey, you guys, what are you doing?” Candace said, coming out into the back yard. She was enjoying a rare day off from her job at the Googolplex Mall. “Because if it’s bustable, I’m going to tell Mom.” She looked at Phineas for a moment, puzzled, before her eyes suddenly got wide. “You turned yourself into a girl, Phineas? You are so busted!”
 
“And busty,” Ferb noted wryly.
 
“That too,” Candace said, stopping herself from running into the house. “Hey, how did you manage that? Because, I’m 17 and you’ve got me beat there. Did you tweak it to add cup sizes? Because if you did…”
 
Ferb shook his head, and Phineas said, “No, nothing like that. Maybe I got it from Dad’s side of the family.”

...argh, I forgot to exclude 'against all odds'.  I'm kind of leaning toward the fourth row:

Transformations would be the Gravity Falls story I'm currently working on.
Character in distress...not sure yet.
Virginfic is totally the It's Complicated sequel I'm working on.
Food porn is probably the hardest one here for me.  No idea at the moment.
Unrequited love/pining I don't have an immediate idea for, but that's basically Isabella's schtick right there.  On the other hand, getting that into a different pairing than usual could be rough.  We'll see.

Something a bit different - Gravity Falls this time. Dipper gets himself in over his head in an attempt to win Wendy’s heart.

Again.
 
“If I don’t do something, she’s going to take Robbie back!” Dipper said.
 
Mabel sighed, sitting on her bed and holding her favorite pig. “Dipper. You can’t keep all the other guys away from her until you’re old enough to date her,” she said. “We’re twelve. She’s fifteen. At the end of the summer…we’ll still be twelve, and she’ll still be fifteen, and we’re going to go back to Piedmont. She’ll go back to her school, and we’ll go back to ours.”
 
“No. I refuse to believe there isn’t any way.”
 
“What, you’re going to will yourself to grow six inches? Even if you find the growth crystals again, all they’ll do is make you an even bigger twelve-year-old dork.”

Today’s story is from a Ferbnessa story where Vanessa is working as a barista in the city where Ferb has just started college.
 
Looking at the cup, she called out, “Darjeeling for Fred?” as she carried it to the counter.
 
A hand was reaching toward the cup as she set it down; she looked up…
 
Oh.
 
She recognized him quickly. The green hair was a giveaway, even if the eyes - those deep blue eyes - hadn’t riveted her immediately.
 
“Hey, your name’s not Fred,” she said.
 
He grinned. “It’s easier than trying to convince someone to call me Ferb. It’s been a while - how’ve you been?”
