Miranda/Andy
The Devil Wears Prada
Rated Teen
Summary: "Are we here so we'll work so late we fall asleep together?"

I've been struggling to finish things lately, and despite lovely offers from friends (I see you, needled_ink_1975 and sporkmetender) to read and edit and share ideas, I've had every something cooking on every burner and it's not been pretty. I just read the conclusion to Stars Set Alight by ithinkyourewonderful; I really liked the story and have followed it for a couple of years, and the author decided to provide some concluding notes so she could move on to other projects in good conscience. I really respect that decision and wish her all the best in her writing. Honestly, that decision inspired me to wrap up this tiny (tiny, tiny) story I've had in the works. It's nothing splashy, but I enjoyed writing it.

Well, I've responded to one of the prompts provided by my wonderful friends-listers. My response to [livejournal.com profile] law_nerd's "(reading) between the lines" is under the cut. Started out with the idea of Miranda eavesdropping on Andy while she talks on the phone; ended up with something kinda porny. Thanks for a great prompt!

Rating: Mature
Note: I had this idea a long, long time ago, and wrote a few paragraphs that never went anywhere. Then I had so much fun writing Miranda's POV in the story I posted earlier today, and I realized that I needed to quit being so shy and write this story from Miranda's perspective, too.

Miranda Priestly has never dated a woman before, but she's worried that she might be dating Andrea Sachs. )

(This is a story I posted at the comment fic-a-thon a while back. I realized I never made an entry for it here, and I'm trying to get my fic index in good shape again. Having all my stuff in one place helps. If you missed this one during the fic-a-thon, enjoy!)

Note: I finished this story about 12 minutes after the recent DWP comment ficathon ended, so I'm posting it here instead. It's in response to [livejournal.com profile] la_fono's prompt: "bunions, blisters, and hammer toes." Edit: and apparently, the ficathon doesn't end until 11:59 PST. So, I'm adding a link to this story to the original thread!

Onto the story! )

Title: Dinner Out

Pairing: Miranda/Andy, Nigel/OMC
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: I own nothing related to The Devil Wears Prada.
Summary: Nigel is observant.
Author's Note: In June 2009, I requested some prompts to unstick my writing. [livejournal.com profile] somniesperus said, "'Cosmopolitan.' (Can be the drink, the magazine, or the state of mind; lady's choice.)" [livejournal.com profile] baggers said, "...location: wardrobe." So, I wrote, and in July I sent [livejournal.com profile] pin_drop my draft of a story about Nigel and Miranda's friendship. She did a fantastic job editing it. Then I sat on it, for many months, distracted by other projects and frustrated by a lack of direction. Now I've finally finished. Many thanks to my prompters and especially to my editor!

Nigel always mixed the drinks at his parties... )

I'm long overdue for a rec post! Here are a few choice stories from the last several months. The theme: thinking and having fun all at the same time, with fanfic as the medium for said activities. Yes, it can be done.

The Ship and the Girl by [livejournal.com profile] needled_ink1975 (The Devil Wears Prada, Miranda/Andy, PG-13)
The word that springs to mind upon reading this story is "thoughtful." Thoughtful exploration of Miranda's pre-film past, thoughtful treatment of the friendship and professional life and familial experiences of two women, thoughtful narration, thoughtful diction and syntax and everything. And guess what else? It's fun.

Four Suites and One Room by [livejournal.com profile] chilly_flame (The Devil Wears Prada, Miranda/Andy, M)
Chilly_Flame is another master of the concept of thinking and having fun all at the same time. Also, this story is really, really hot. As I mentioned to the author, "porn with plot" is a favorite genre, and this story is a prime example.

Making History (One Saturday at a Time) by [livejournal.com profile] thelastgoodname (The Devil Wears Prada, Miranda/Andy, R)
Thelastgoodname provided this rating: "explicit sports content. Implicit sexual content." That really says it all. Again, there is lots of thinking and lots of fun. Miranda is a football fan! Andy is a Miranda fan! By the end, Miranda is an Andy fan (and very much remains a truly scary hardcore football fan), and Andy might like football just a little bit, too.

--

Beta Tested by [livejournal.com profile] somniesperus (Battlestar Galactica, Roslin/Apollo, M)
So, it kind of cracks me up that this story is called "Beta Tested," because I beta-read it. I had a lot of fun doing so, too, though the real fun is in the sort of "beta-testing" shenanigans in which the characters indulge, all in the name of fleet safety, of course. I stubbornly maintain that the love between Laura Roslin and her Captain Apollo is canon, and Telanu does a fantastic job expanding upon the sexual tension and genuine affection present between the two characters.

--

In other news, the nuns remain stubborn, and progress remains slow, but I am not abandoning this Doubt story. The nuns are maddening and fun, and--in sticking with the theme here--I'm thinking about them a whole lot. I just need to spend more time thinking with a pen in my hand. Other things that remain stubborn: my poetry, my future, and my cats.

--

Edited to add: I love these rec'd stories with all my heart, and there have been some other good ones, too. I don't mean to sound too bitter(ly sarcastic) over the thinking and the having of fun: I just want to particularly applaud the efforts made at doing both. Sometimes, fandoms lose sight of that balance, and the fact that these fics don't have that problem is truly something to celebrate.

Summary: Three.
Author's Note: This is my Secret Santa Exchange fic for [livejournal.com profile] melanacious. Happy holidays, and I hope you enjoy it! Enormous thanks to my editors, [livejournal.com profile] pin_drop and [livejournal.com profile] somniesperus. Without your insights, I could not have written this story.

Miranda preferred to keep work separate from home; Andy preferred to live a life without secrets; Nigel preferred men. )

Andy the Vampire Slayer by [livejournal.com profile] la_fono (The Devil Wears Prada, Andy/Miranda, PG)
Words-and-pictures for grown-ups, rendered by an artist who knows how to have exactly the right amount of fun.

The Very Secret Diary of Character X by [livejournal.com profile] pantone462 (The Devil Wears Prada, Nigel Kipling, PG-13)
Clever and creative, this story presents one of the most realistic looks at Miranda I've seen in a fic.

--

Father by [livejournal.com profile] lupinotuum (Battlestar Galactica, Laura Roslin, Hard R)
This story follows Laura Roslin from her childhood until the Cylon attack. Although [livejournal.com profile] lupinotuum's characterizations of Laura don't always line up with how I see her, I believed this story intensely as I read. There's an unrelentless quality to the storytelling here, and the ingredients of Laura's power are beautifully rendered.

Summary: Kissing and caffeine and gossip.
Author's Note: A few weeks ago, I asked my friends list for some writing prompts. I'm planning to use as many of the prompts as possible in various ways, but this story is a response to [livejournal.com profile] baggers' request for "New York fashion week. The McCafe stand at the tents. (Seriously, this is a reality.)" So, here's a little less than 2,000 words on that sort of thing.

Maybe it was Paris, the first morning... )

Summary: This is a story told backwards.
Author’s Note: Many, many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] pin_drop for being an incredibly thoughtful editor. I am beyond grateful for her amazing insights and attention to detail. This piece was a long time in the making—back in June I told Telanu I was starting to write a “really happy, really feminist” story, and mentioned that I was finding it surprisingly difficult. Her response: “Miranda + Happy = Difficult. Not surprising at all!” Four months later, I’ve learned a little bit more about Miranda and Andy and joy. (Also, FYI, the story really is told chronologically backwards.)

Let's start at the very end. )

Author's Note: Many, many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sporkmetender, beta extraordinaire. She was a fantastic help to me. The chronology I used in the storytelling (alternating between present events and history) was inspired by several stories by [livejournal.com profile] somniesperus.

So, the Doubt drabbles will take awhile, probably because they don't want to be drabbles at all. You can't rush a couple of potentially gay nuns, at least that's what I always say! Ahem. I have a problem.

In the meantime, I have the Devil Wears Prada drabbles requested by [livejournal.com profile] katsforever and [livejournal.com profile] baggers all ready for consumption. They requested "afterglow" and "organization" respectively, but oddly enough both prompts could be used to describe both drabbles.

I have no rights to The Devil Wears Prada, these pieces are PG-13, and they're 274 and 240 words.

Here they are... )
