Mal-The Captain

It Is Done

I've finally made the switch to Dreamwidth official. Created my account there some time ago and let my userpics package here expire, but it took me a while to actually jump on this. But won't be paying LJ another dime when my account subscription is over, and it's just time to go. There are many reasons for this that I will not go into here. You all know as much as I do about Russians and bigotry and the like. And if you don't, look it up and make your own decisions. But as for me... Suffice to say, it is time.

You can find me here: https://jackwabbit.dreamwidth.org/

I'm also @wabbit89 on Twitter,and that's where I'm most active for the most part.

My fanfiction is here: https://www.fanfiction.net/u/1208481/jackwabbit

Finally, one day I may actually flesh out/actually use my Wordpress site, but much like me ever using AO3 (I know, I know, but the time involved to put all my stories up again...ugh), I wouldn't hold my breath for that. ;)

EDIT: As of fall 2020, I finally started using AO3, and I am here: https://archiveofourown.org/users/jackwabbit

All fic is crossposted to fanfic.net as well as Dreamwidth and LiveJournal still, but AO3 is my  main site these days for that.

If you have my email or my phone number, those haven't changed. And any messages sent through the LJ messaging feature will still get to me. I'll respond to those.

As for my journal itself, my Twitter feed is still backed up here, and I've set up my DW to crosspost here for archiving reasons and in case I come back one day, but comments will all be through DW, and that is where I will be doing my original posting.

I'm not likely to continue to check my friends list here. I'm sorry for the few of you who are still here, but if nothing else, I do not like the fact that LJ is no longer an encrypted site, so I do not feel safe here (as much as anyone can be online). Adding the politics and the policies, and well... again, it is time. There's a chance I may pare down my flist and continue to check in on a few of you, as I don't want to lose you to the land of wind and ghosts, but it's not likely to be a frequent occurrance.

Farewell, Livejournal. I did love you so.

New Fic: Unexpected Anomaly

Unexpected Anomaly

Fandom: Star Trek Discovery
Rated: G
Category: Vignette. AU – takes place in the Star Wars Universe (but no real knowledge of that needed). Alternate First Meeting. Medical. But Not Graphic. My first true AU.
Word Count: 1397.
Time Frame: N/A in regards to Trek. For Star Wars, I place this most easily in The Clone Wars era, but can occur any time that Jedi exist publicly. There may be more to this story, and that may nail this down, but for now, open time frame.
Spoilers: None.
Summary: Hugh has done this procedure dozens of times, but medicine (like the universe and the Force that inhabits it) still finds a way to surprise him.
Note: Written for Culmets Celebration 2020, Day Three (Alternate Universe).

New Fic: Detail Oriented

Detail Oriented

Fandom: Star Trek Discovery
Rated: G
Category: Vignette. Culmets. Angst. Romance. Fluff. (Re)established Relationship.
Word Count: 829.
Season: Post-two, Pre-three. (Probably? Inter-season speculation.)
Spoilers: General Series Knowledge Through The End of Season Two.
Summary: Paul’s a stickler for technicalities, and this is a pretty big one.
Note: This series was always supposed to end happy. I tried my best to get it done before season three started, but alas, here we are. Happy Season Three Premiere Day. Some of you have likely seen the first episode of season three already, but I have not. So I’m putting this up now, to stay true to my own vision of the Space Boos before canon blows it out of the sky. I have a few more ideas for stories in this series that will likely fill some gaps, and some of the ones I posted separately may also join this group, but this is my ending. I hope you like it. As for me, I’m doing what Jimmy Buffett told me to do: writing my own ending and hoping it comes true. Live long and prosper, everyone. See you on the other side of the premiere.

Also, this is part of the "I Rang The Bell With My Heart In My Mouth" series, and stories in this series are presented as inspiration strikes, not chronologically. See notes above for timeframe/related stories.
