Looks awesome, doesn't it? What're you thinking of writing?
Are you thinking of doing it? :)
I'm probably gong to write a slashy War and Peace fic :) What are you thinking of doing?
War & Peace fic? Damn that sounds awesome. Daunting, I'd reckon, but awesome.
And yep, I've signed up - Remus/Sirius 16th century poet/patron style fic (a la Shakespeare and Earl of Southampton - something in that vein). Really excited about it :)
That sounds exciting. I reckon Sirius is the patron? lol. I would find THAT daunting. I feel like I don't know nearly enough about that period to write history-accurate fic.
I've written War and Peace before :) (I don't know, have you read it? Watched one of the movies?) i find the word count a bit more daunting. The fact that I'm signed up for het_bigbang as well isn't helping. I'm bad at long fic. Especially finishing it lol.
Yep - it's definitely patron!Sirius. I'm not sure I know enough about the period either, but I've got this idea for a novel set in 16th century England and I figure this'll be good practise for when I eventually get around to writing that.
I've not actually read War and Peace
- it's on the "to-read" list though (has been for a while, I must confess - I got distracted by Dostoyevsky and A Song of Ice and Fire, hee).
Oh hey, I signed up for het_bigbang
as well - now that one's really
scary. 25k. Especially as the longest thing I've ever
written was only 4200 words long (I choose to believe that I'm merely concise, and not rubbish ;)). And I've gone with a fandom that I don't usually write in (smart, Ria; really smart, lol).
Yea...het_bigbang is gonna be one hell of a challenge for me. Firstly, because it's half a NaNo and I completely suck at writing long fics...especially finishing them. Secondly, my het is so-so. I feel like I get bored with it too quickly. Also, the idea that I have for this story is so expansive that I'm just a bit scared weather I'm gonna be able to rope it in plus not let it run off into Gen Land.
